Boys CAMP OUT.-The Boy Scouts held their first camp under the shadow of the ruins of Morlais Castle during the Easter holidays. Be prepared to rough it" was the order of the day, and right well did the boys go through the ordeal. Various drills, signalling, dis- patch bearing, &c., were satisfactorily carried through. The camp had not been organised with any thought of comfort, and to the credit of the lads be it said not of fhiirniuring was heard. The weather was ideal, and con- j tributed largely to make. the first venture a success. Messrs. W. Wood, W. Marshall, and A. Qoung were with the lads during the greater part of the time, and Gilbert Lewis was the j officer in charge of camp. Some thirty scouts were out, either for part or whole time. Camp was struck on Wednesday morning, the lads J assembling for a short devotional service, the singing of the hymn, Jesu, Lover of my soul," to the tune of Aberystwyth, waa heartily taken up. Then the ninety-first Psali4 was i read, and a short address was given by the I Scouts' chaplain, after which the doxology closed the proceedings. The troop then formed up, and marched to parade ground, where they saluted the flag, and from thence marched into Merthyr, where they arrived at one o'clock, hot, dusty, and tired. It is hoped to form a thoroughly organised camp for Whitsuntide, when some degree of comfort will be afforded the lads, as a little compensation for their first roughing of it. Meantime the officers are pleased and proud of the behaviour of the Merthyr Boy Scouts under the trying circum- stances. v.
