I A Good Joke.
“No. ■Captain, I shall have to turn
The chaplain of the second regiment,
Rev. P. A. Murray, was sad. very sad.
Ever since his appointment in June he
had been In camp hard at work, doing
all In his power to v.ln souls for Christ.
He had become one of the most popular
men In the regiment. Everybody liked
him, and he loved ihe soldier boys.
Now, to be thrown out on account of
physical defects was too bad, was
crushing to him. Yet, after a thor
ough examination by the surgeons he
was thrown out.
As has been said, Mr. Murray Is very
popular at Camp Lee; everybody finds
it easy to get on with tiim, and on ac
count of his good nature Major Wan
narnalter and his assistant surgeons,
along with mustering officer, Capt. Ful
ler, decided to piny a. Joke on him. Dr.
Wannamaker had almost completed the
examination of Mr. Murray when he
placed his right ear over the latter's
heart. He listened to the rythmical
beats of that organ, then changed ears.
He backed oft a short distance, then
again proceeded with the examination.
"Captain,” he finally said, "you suf
fer from rheumatism”
"No, sir, f do not,” earn,- the prompt
Dr. Griffith was called in and after
an examination pronounced it a rheu
matic heart. Dr. Poore concurred with
the other physicians. Th ■ three with
drew fora consultation, as Capt. Mur
ray thought, but it was simply in order
to give vent to their pent up laughter.
Upon returning they found Capt. Mur
ray in a brown study.
