of bad weather, the British made
good their most important gains and
apparently are only awaiting better
weather conditions to blast in farther.
Berlin boasts that the Entente
thrust failed is based on the unwar unwarranted
ranted unwarranted assumption that an attempt
was made to break through and upon
the fact that at one or two points the
German reaction gained advanced
positions. In answer to this the Brit British
ish British regained one of these positions

Training Camp at Macon Not Ready

Throughout Florida this week pre
parations are being made in almost
every city and town of size for the
departure of military companies for
the state camp grounds probably ear early
ly early next week to enter training for the
part the Florida National Guard
troops will play in the war to save
Both infantry regiments of the
state troops will be encamped at
Black Point and, in addition, the three
new companies of coast artillery, or
ganized at Tampa, St. Petersburg and
Miami, also will go into camp here.
Information that the coast artillery
organizations will camp here was re-
ceived yesterday by the Metropolis,
conveyed in the following dispatch
from Louis Ludlow, the Metropolis
special correspondent in Washington:
"The war department states that
the new coast artillery companies in
Florida are to be mobilized August 5,
when the First and Second infantry
regiments mobilize, and will go into
camp temporarily with the other
troops at Black Point."
Just how long the state troops will
remain at Black Point is problemat problematical
ical problematical but the entire militia force of
Florida will be assembled at the state
camp for a time and probably until
completely equipped. The permanent
training camp for Florida troops will
be at Macon, Ga., but no advices have
come from the southeastern depart department
ment department headquarters at Charleston as
to when the movement will take place.
f To Mobilize Sunday
Sunday morning all companies of
the First and Second regiments, as
well as the three new coast artillery
companies will mobilize in their arm armories
ories armories to await instructions for pro proceeding
ceeding proceeding to Black Point. It is not
thought that they will be kept at theii
armories more than a day or two, at
the longest for, as a general thing,
the armories offer poor facilities for
quartering a large number of men.
It is understood that arrangements
already have been made with the
railroads for bringing the companies
from their home stations to the state
camp, and the company commanders
expect to be notified within a few
hours after mobilization regarding
the date and hour for entraining.

AMERICANS WILL BE
ARMED WITH ENFIELDS
Following is some interesting in information
formation information about the British Enfield
rifle, which is to supercede the
Springfield our troops are carrying
Even if the British gun was super
ior, it is not likely that the American
army would discard its regular rifle
on the eve of going into war if it had
a sufficient supply of this arm or was
in a position to make all it required
in a short time. The reason for
adopting the British arm, however, is
that three of the largest rifle factor
ies in the United States have been
making Enfields for the British gov
ernment since the beginning of the
war, and it would take them a year to
set up the special tools, jigs and
gauges necessary ior making tne
Springheld. ln iact, tnere is not a
single private factory in the United
States capable of turning out the
Springfield rifle today, and the gov
ernment supply and facilities for in
creasing the supply are small and in
adequate in comparison with the fa facilities
cilities facilities available for making En En-fields.
fields. En-fields. In just one respect will the
American Enfield differ from the
British rifle, it will be of .30 calibre
instead of .305. It will be made to fit
American ammunition. The desir desirability
ability desirability of all the allies using the same
sized bullet is plain, but the fact is
that the British, French, Belgian and
Russian bores are all different, and
there would be no great advantage in
the Americans using one of them.
American soldiers going to the
front may rest certain that they will
be equipped with a rifle that has
"stood up" under the strain of the
most terrific conflict in history. The
Enfield has made good. The British
soldier swears by it. Canadian sol soldiers
diers soldiers tossed away their Ross rifles,
even after they had been rechamber-
ed, to get hold of an Enfield. They
had lost confidence in the Ross. Above
everything else the Enfield has prov
ed that it can stand rough usage. It
was made for war. The Springfield,
on the other hand, developed flaws
that were noted by soldiers in the
Mexican campaign. It is sighted on
the theory that attacking troops
would march erect from a distance
of 1,000 to 1,500 yards, and that the
rifle should have a "battle sight" so
devised that the soldier would shoot
point blank at 540 yards, and there
fore would have a reasonable proba
bility of hitting a standing man al
most anywhere, between the muzzle
and 1,000 yards without altering the
The war has shown the fallacy of
this supposition. Men nowadays do
not march as they were expected to
do by the designers of the Spring
field. As soon as they get within
thousand yards they begin to crawl,
and when crawling make a very low
mark. Moreover, the chief rifle shoot
ing on the western front today is at
objects sixty or eighty yards away, a
hand or a head shown for an instan
over a trench. The soldier who is a
good shot today, says Gen. Wingate;
must be able to shoot quickly and hit
an egg at a distance of 100 yards. To
do this as any marksman knows, he
must shoot at the egg and not below
it. To hit an egg at 100 yards with a
Springfield it would be necessary to
depress the muzzle of the rifle, since
it is sighted for more than 500 yards.
To hit a mark at 100 yards the
Springfield would have to be sighted
14 inches low, and two feet at 300
How difficult it would be to aim
two feet "under" a German crawling
along 300 yards away over uneven
ground will be appreciated even by
the non-expert. American soldiers in
Mexico complained that they usually
overshot the mark offered by Mexi Mexicans
cans Mexicans crawling through the brush. In
Gen. Wingate's opimion both the
sights of the Springfield are too del delicate
icate delicate for war. They are not proper properly
ly properly protected, as are both the Enfield
sights by steel wings or flanges.
Moreover, the rear sight is set well
forward of the breech, while the rear
sight of the Enfield is set behind the
breech, which is an advantage in the
opinion of this expert. French and
Russian rifles have the rear sights lo located
cated located like the Springfield sight, but it
is everywhere admitted that none of
the allied armies has made such
wonderful marksmanship as the
British, a fact which will further con convince
vince convince the American soldiers that they
are going into action with the best
rifle in the world.

Of all the stories that I read,
Or somehow, hear about,
There are few, with jealous greed,
That always I hold out.
They are the ones that I relate,
Quite sure IH get a laugh;
Their origin may not be lat
They're not as good by half
As some I hear each little while,
And yet, before they're done,
You ought to see the happy smile
They force upon my son.
He doesn't care how dull the tale,
Nor more, how weak the point;
Hell laugh at each however stale,
Till nearly out of joint.
When other people hear my tales,
They don't enjoy them so;
Their laughter doesn't come in gales,
They heard them years ago.
My son's the only one they please,
He laughs to beat the band,
Twists his toes and bends his knees,
But he can't understand.
And so I save up funny things,
Folks underestimate 'em,
To watch the smile one always brings,
For he'll appreciate 'em.
