Williamsport Warren Review (Newspaper) - July 28, 1898, Williamsport, Indiana
The review ind., july 28, 1898. Pudding Ouk boys. Beats a Boomerang. Uncle Sam provides a very Good table for them. I and hits him in the Back so Rions work of feeding an army a the i Obleni of fresh bread How the soldiers health is guarded the company Cook. I Uncle Sam s soldiers Are probably the Best fed and cared for troops in the world. The facilities for securing provisions even on forced marches Are such that the commissary department has Little trouble in supplying the troops with a varied and palatable Bill of fare. The greatest tests in the matter of food supplies during the past two decades have been to secure and transport provisions to the Little bands of cavalry and infantry engaged in keeping Down Indian depredations in the West. It was during these expeditions that the equipment of the commissary department has been perfected until to Day each company carries in a Small space All the necessaries of a ditch in and culinary department. This outfit is one which never fails to interest women visitors to encampments of United states troops and to win from the housewife great Praise for its simplicity and effectiveness. Each company has its Cook usually a fat and Jolly member of the service whose Headquarters Are frequented during All parts of the Day by convivial members of the company. The usual habit of Cooks to grow fat and Good natured seems to be a Rule of those who serve in the army As Well As those who Are in civil life. The Cook is a regularly enlisted member of the army told off for his duties because of his fitness for the part. He is allowed two assistants these being appointed by the commander of the company for a week s service in the Cook s department and being under his charge. While they assist in preparing and serving the food the Cook does the major part of the work and it is his taste and skill which goes to make the victuals served a Factor in the health and Contentment of the corps. The Cook has one Small tent in which Are stored the provisions and utensils needed. A Large Fly with poles and Guy ropes serves to shelter the cooking apparatus and to form the company s Kitchen. Under it the stove is placed. The latter is an Oblong Metal affair made on purpose for the army and having griddle holes for the pots and pans. A ditch is scraped in the Earth and on it the stove is placed leaving room underneath for the fire of glowing Weed embers. The Cook is in artist at making a fire in this Trench and in keeping it at an even heat. Various folding chairs tables improvised of Camp chests and other things serve a to make the necessary apparatus for use in the Kitchen. A dozen big kettles boilers and pans Are the utensils needed. Dinner at noon is the principal meal of the Day in Camp life and for an hour before the Kitchen presents a Busy scene. One assistant with sleeves rolled up above the elbows sits on a Chest peeling potatoes a Bushel or More being necessary for the meal. Near him the other assistant bends Over a great Quarter of beef carving out a Supply for the meal. The Cook watches his men while he attends the stove and begins preparations for the coming repast. A huge boiler on one Side of the stove holds four Gallons of fragrant Coffee another boiler is filled with water to receive the potatoes while in a Bright Kettle on another part of the stove the Cook drops vegetables Rice and other wholesome parts of soup and Waits for the assistant to finish carving the meat that it May be added. Soon the dinner is Well under Way and the Cook and his assistants Are Busy men. In addition to the hot parts of the meal there Are to be taken from the chests and served great loaves of bread or hard tack. The bread problem is a serious one on a March or in Camp and away from the cities and while the Cook often has to prepare the Cora bread or other Cereal himself it is brought into Camp already prepared whenever possible. A company of a Hundred men or More will eat a great Quantity of the staff of life in a week and hundreds of loaves Are necessary. There Are other parts of the Soldier s meal to be fixed if the company is near civilization and provisions Are plentiful. Baked begins often appear of the Bill of fare dried fruit Rice Hominy and other easily carried eatables and to prepare All these on the one Small stove and with Only two assistants is an Art that Only an army Cook understands. I quot when the meal is ready and the bugles blow to mess the soldiers arrange themselves in an orderly manner and the Cook and his assistants a will not be Safe from an enemy standi Zigr on the opposite Side of a House if the claims of a Young English inventor Are True. The Man who flatters himself that he is Safe because he is behind a House when another Man is firing off a gun at the other Side had better get rid of that ridiculous notion once and for All. For a Young inventor claims to have discovered a wonderful new Way of making bullets and if the new Bullet meets with that popularity which its remarkable abilities appear to warrant it won t be quite Safe to be in a balloon while an Effort is being made to fire Down a w3ll. In Short the new Bullet will even if it does Only half of what is claimed for it upset All old fashioned notions of the Laws governing the flight of projectiles. Arthur Chalk of Church place High Street Wapping is the Young inventor in question and he yesterday told a daily mail reporter that this new Bullet of his would of around Corners suddenly shoot up in the air and descend Point first on top of a town or anything or Fly round and round and then jump Back and kill off an enemy at the Back of the Man who fired it. Quot i am but eighteen years of age quot said or. Chalk modestly quot and i am confident that i have invented a Bullet that will revolutionize fighting. What i claim and am prepared to prove is that with my Bullet i can hit an object that is round a Corner or on the other Side of a Block of houses. There is absolutely no doubt about the accuracy of the aim. Supposing now you wanted to hit something that was round the Corner of a Mountain. When you had found the distance Between your gun and the Mountain you would fix your Bullet to alter its course at a certain moment. Then you d fire and the Man round the Corner would be sorry. Quot or say you wanted to hit an enemy s ship lying on tie other Side of one of your own. That would be the easiest thing imaginable. You would just fix your Bullet to go straight for a bit then soar upward for awhile and then Rush Down Point first on top of the doomed vessel. Quot i Tell you my Bullet will go any Way and do anything you May want it to and i be written to the War office to say so. Quot up to now the Only communication i have received in reply is the usual stereotyped acknowledgement but the Patent office people he did not mention names have valued the invention at �150,000, and have told me that it is the most marvelous invention of the present age. Quot i shall wait for a further communication from the War office and if i do not hear from them i shall offer my a invention to a foreign government. Of course i would rather the new Bullet became the property of the English government but i want to know or. Chalk is a modest and very Earnest inventor and when he mentioned that he had tried one of his bullets in a Field and that the projectile obedient to his wish had circled in the air about five times and had then fallen behind him he did so with the air of a Young Man who is calmly confident that he has thought out a great thing. But of the method by which he alleges he obtains these unusual results no hint can be extracted from him. That is the secret he Hopes to obtain those �150,-000 from. An accidental Success. Once upon a time so runs the Story there was a Man in London who had vim lured upon various Chomos with but poor Success and was beginning to despair of Ever making a Fortune when by Chance he Bethought himself of a huge scrapbook which his wife had compiled of various literary Odds and ends that had unchained her fancy. She called her scrapbook and it occurred to her husband that such Odds and ends published in periodical form might ii Teri or other people As Well is his wife. The result of this meditation on his part the appearance of a Little Penny paper called which proved so popular and gained such a wide circulation that its proprietor Felt encouraged to place other literal y re inures on the Marker and it was not Lens before l i it l elt Aino known As the Pul Disher of a number of extremely Poji ular Penny periodicals.

If by some stroke of Good Fortune a boy or girl should find a 2-cont postage stamp of one of the earliest issues in the hawaiian islands he could sell it for enough to pay All his expenses during a four years course in College and have a snug Little sum left to begin business after his graduation. This stamp is said to be one of the rarest in the world. It is roughly printed on poor paper but a dealer will pay $1,-750 for a specimen of it. It makes it a pretty valuable piece of paper. A droll inventor has just made a machine by Means of which a Man can lift his hat by merely contracting his brows so that in Case he meets a lady Friend he can make an automatic Bow. Not Only has the inventor spent a Good Deal of time on his device but he actually has had it patented.

A sloping roof adds one third to one half the Timo of construction. A hinged door is also a dreadfully costly thing in time. I make my coops As High As i can get them by using Only one Board. That is rarely Over loin lies 12 will do. If two boards Are used to get the height the sides ought to to papered the same As the roof.

It is said that a Yorkshire socialist was explaining to a Friend the principles of his belief and he made the statement at the Start out. First the soup is ladled out outset that All possessions should be then the More solid components of the so cared equally meal then the Coffee and then the sweets until All Are supplied. To such an extent does cleanliness enter into the preparation of the soldiers meal that the greatest precautions Are taken to exclude dirt. Carefully the pots and pans Are scrubbed brightly the big knives and utensils Are polished and the refuse of the Cook tents is carried far off and dumped to prevent the contagion that might arise from decaying slops. The officers Are vigilant in keeping watch on the Cook and his assistants As the health of the Camp May depend on their careful cleanliness. Each company has its Cook and mess except where great armies Are encamped then a number of Cook departments Are thrown together to work in unison. Uncle Sam has All his cooking utensils made to order ant chests Are used to pack everything to when of the March.
