The entire day Friday, at the mo-
bilization camp, was taken up with
routine work; the policing of the
camp and the inoculating the men
with the typhoid serum. The work of
vaccination against small pox was
started today by the army physician?.
Only one amusing incident created
« slight commotion in the camp, that
was when men of troop B and com-
pany M, became incensed at an article
written by a correspondent of the Ok-
lahoma News and proceeded to give
hjm. jialm beach suit and all, a good
ducking under a conveninet hydrant.
He was also given just five hours to
leave camp.
The trouble is said to have arisen
over an article written by him, in
which he told how the officers dined in
such magnificent style while the pri-
vate* were compelled to eat out of tin
plates.
BRIDGE CONTRACT LET.
The contract for the bridge to be
built out near Faxon was let this
morning to the Boardman company of
Oklahoma City, the lowest bidder.
Their bid was $2265.

MEXICAN NATURALIZES IN
ORDER TO ENLIST IN ARMY
FLAGS!
MATRAS INTKIAGO WANTS
GO WITH THE UNITED
STATES FOtCCES.
TO
* This morning, a Mexican by th<j
name of Matras Intriago, was brought
to Lawton by one of the military of-
ficers for the purpose of making his
naturalization declaration, and Attor-
ney McElhoes was asked to make out
the papers and file them at once, and
as soon as this was done, he returned
with the officer to the military camp
and enlisted.
He was from the state of Vera Cm
and was quite an in;clligent Mexican
and left Mexico a' out the first ot
June and came to Lawton with the
Tulja company. He owns a body of
land in Mexico and his farm and stock
has been devastated by the Mexicans
ond is quite anxious to get back with
the American forces. He says he
knows every toad in the state of Vera
Cruz, and that the intelligent Mexi-
cans are very much with the United
States. He further avers that both Vil-
la and Carranza get American boys in
their lines under a guarantee of pro-
tection and then murder them, and
that their guarantees are worth abso-
lutely nothing.
