History of the Center of the Recent Mobilization. When the War Department issued tile order for the mobilization of troops near the Mcxiean boundary San An- tonic and Fort Sam ]Iouston aehieved new fame over night, says the Coming Country. In Fort Sam Houston, the second largest army post in America, San Antonio has one of the show places of the army. The reservation is beauti- fully situated in the suburbs of the city, and aside frOnt its military in- terest its immense area and scenic beauty ntake it attractive to visit. Front It post of 300 acres Fort Sam Houston h'ts been enlarged until it now coral)rises some 944 acres of ground. The buih]ings and improve- ments represent an expenditure of near- ly $4,000,000. The fort occupies a pe- culiarly strategic position. It is only 150 miles from the gulf an(l on railroad lines leading north, south, east and west. It is close, to the Mexican boun- dary line, so that troops can be moved rapidly to the border should the occa- sion demand. In addition to Fort Sam Houston the government owns some 18,000 acres, [ tim Leon Springs eservation, located about seventeen ntiles northwest, of San Antonio, This reservation is used each year lay the National Guards antl de- tachments of regalars as a training school. As many as 10,000 troops have been in eamp there for a month at a time.

Not; f'tr frozu the fort are the S'ln Pedro Springs, where rival ]:ndiau lribes contended for the precioas wa- ters long before the fautous ntissions about San Antonio w'ore bnilt. The adventurous Spaniards and the zealous monks pitched their teats beside the stream that ilows from these springs :tnd mute testimony f early conflicts have been upturned by the plough--- shot, shell, swerd hilts an(I Ilia occa- sional cannon, telling of' the conflicts which were waged hereabouts. But tlte story of all these early con- flicts pales into insignificance alongside the story of the Ahtmo. Iu early days the Alamo was utilized for military purposes. After several changes the post of I:ort Sam tIouston was estab- lished, and the Quadruple l)uihling erected in 1874-. ]n ]883 what is known as the Uppert Post was costructed and qoarters provided for a regiment of infantry. ]?rom that on to the present the garrison has been frequent. ]y enlarged to make the fort a brigade post.

Lee resigned the commission anll e,st his lot with the Confederacy.

It was San Antonio which contributed many of the men of tile Eighteenth and the Twent),-third infantry regi- nnutts of regulars who were the first to go to the Philippines. San Ant'onto gave much of the mattrial of Light Battery K, the artillery command that won fame at Santiago and S'm Juan Hill. A Scottish woman, wh was spending her holillays in LeMon, entered a bric- a-lmte shop in search of something odd to take homo to Scotland with her. After she had inspected severed art;- des, but had found none to suit her, she noticed a quaint figure, the head and shoulders of which appeared ,'tbove the counter.
