be filledto war strength Tlie appeal to men yester day for joining for service in Mexi co was strong enough to draw In many and now that war is but a fiuestiou of time following reports this morning concerning the deatti of forty American cavalrymen it is probable that such a wave of patri otism will sweep this and other sec tions of the country that practically all companies of state militia will be far above enlisting orders Men Want To Join Practically all young men who can are anxious to join and are do ng so as fast as they are able The service in Mexico will offer many in Uicements

of the younger men will take advantage of their chance and enroll Local Militia The liest Practically all of those who will join from tins section will in all prob ability join one of the two local com panies as tli is will mean they will go through the war with acquaintances and friends that would be denied did they enter the regular service This Is one of the main reasons that those who
