School SupL W CoronerC M Russell Ft APACHE ARIZONA We had a terrible storm last night I was on guard and thought several times I would drown or be blown away We have been real busy for the past 10 days An Inspector General from headquarters has been with us Inspec- ¬ He ting everything in the port had us out drilling most every flay We have three troops here at present One day he had fl and G Troops of the 3rd Cavalry to give M Troop of the 5th Cavalry 3 hours start of them then try to capture them We had quite a task finding them They cap ¬ tured my Captain one Corporal and four Privates when we began to close in on them We certainly had a nice sham battle I could see the boys on both sides falling as if they were kill ed One fellow by me was accidet tally wounded but M Troop soon surrendered We then went back over the battle field to gather up the woun ded and bury the dead It was quite exciting with most of us Tne inspector condemned 75 horse 30 mules sev- ¬ eral wagons and hundreds of quip ments A boy from Lexington Ky was taken back by civil authority as a witness in a murder case I bare my doubts as to his return Four pf M Troop boys deserted last week but were captured They are good for 3 years and a dishonorable discharge A man is foolish for trying to desert from this place The rcouts arc alp most sure to catch them I just came back from an eight day trip fixing tel ¬ egraph wires I went with a couple of scouts had plenty of game to eat such as deer bear turkey ducks and jack rabbits I enj eyed my trip tine the first night I thought of stenos I which I have read about Indians cap- ¬ turing white boys aitbougn 1 wasnt the least bit afraid of them 1 had lots of fun with them and learned a agrtat deal about their tribe by watch lug them and asking them
