hcampment For OAC Cadets at Port-
, ' land Exposition - "- - ,
Plans are forming to haye.the
O ACL cadet regiment camp for :. ten
days at Portland during the Expo
sition next ".year. Thcpermission
of the- War Department has been
secured for the purpose, and guan
antee of tenting, cots and other
equipment has been arranged for.
Though no assurance- ox the Kind
has been received, it" is anticipated
that the Exposition authorities wlLI
provide suitable grounds for the
encampment. The cadets of the
Washington Agricultural College
fif Pullinan are to spend teq davs
in encampment at the Exposition
it is saiu mat grouuus nave ueeu
proraised them! by the Exposition
managers. . xhey numoer .300 men
and consist of four Infantry com-'
panies and band of 30 pieces. .The
OAC regiment, outnumbers the
Washinetonians by 100, , and com
prises six Infantry Companies, and
detachments each of artillery 'sig
nal corps, engineers corps, hospital
corps and band of 24 pieces. The
middle - of. June, or immediately
after Commencement has vbeen
suggested as a favorable date for
the cadets to go into camp. It is
not expected that the cadets of the
two states could camp at the .same
time on account of the lack of tent
ing and parade grounds. It the
proposition be carried out as plan
ned, -it will be an attractive feature
for the Fair, a novel and excellent
advertisement of the college, and
not unattractive to the boys of the
regiment. .

The gentleman's latest; exploits
are as a hunter. . His fellow-sportsmen-contend
that he is the most
enthusiastic duck-hunter known to
the fraternitx"; It is said that De
Varne. permits no obstacle ' to def
ter hitn in the pursuit of a wound
ed bird.- - He greatly enjoys -wading
after his game.- -To go out I into
the turbulent waters- until the cold
waveo auigc uuuci u suui uiuu,
is his delight, and to swim in pur
suit of his game is glory beyond
acclaim. i. ; ; it. ;- EeT:5 U- f
The first of the week while hunt
ing in company with other members
of the Ione Pine Club, he shot a
teal duck which Jell on the-. Oppos
ite bank of a Willamette branch
flowing partly around Smith island.
Devarney's friends essayed to : de
ter iiim from the act, but their ad
monitions . were brushed aside,
and after removing the ' weightier
articles of " his apparel, he plunged
j boldly into the current. The feat
was watched with breathless an
xietyi accompanied by "cold chills"
but it is claimed that not a . tremor
moved the dauntless sportsman
through the performance of suc-
cessf ullx securing and ; returning
with Jbis bird. ;.
It was on the same day that,' as
the result of a long shot, . DeVarn
ey brought down a fine mallard. It
seemed; not to be seriously wound
ed, and the hunter sought to use
the live bird as a. decoy. It could
not flyijotberwise it would have
continued its course when shot.
Still, to prevent : the duck ; from
swimming away. DeVarney. fasten
ed it, in a suitable place, :: with -
sE " iaade from strips of his pock
fcbhcealed himself," wiWriervotis art-
ticipation. and as he searched the
murky heavens for the approach
of game, from an unexpected quart
er he heard a flutter and a deep re
sounding -"quack. ' ' - That was a
thrilling moment; but when his
vision fell on the game, he saw at
once that it was his decoy duck in
full flight attached to which was a
long white string. ; DeVarney sent
after the fleeing bird the entire con
tents pf his pump gun, ' but it soon
passed safely around a bend in the
river, the streamer fluttering a fond
and a lasting farewell. :.;
