AFTER TWEHTY WEEKS OF
A IS III FEDERAL
One Sunday morning last March,
the members of Company A, just
back from the border, marched with
the swinging steps of veterans up
Fort King avenue to their armory,
where they were mustered out of the
Federal service and again became
soldier-citizens of Florida. They ex expected
pected expected to be called again in a few
weeks, or at the least two months.
But the weeks have gone by, and
they have patiently waited, at their
own expense, for the country to call
them again. They have been a
mighty fine example of the true old
saying, "They also serve who only
stand and wait."
They haven't altogether stood still,
for most of them have attended drill,
and almost everyone has been a re recruiting
cruiting recruiting officer, using his influence to
change some friend into a comrade.
And they have probably been the
most powerful of the many agencies
working to that end.
Sunday morning, August 5, they
"fell in," and automatically became
again the soldiers of Uncle Sam.
Most of the old border crowd was on
hand a few have been mustered out
because relatives are dependent on
them but they will join again if the
country really needs them. And
"taps" has sounded for one.
They began the war's work without
any display lined up in the armory

Sergeant Harris called the roll.
There were 118 present, for a num

of them were veterans, but forty or
more were recruits. After roll call,

necessary to do, but it being Sunday
as well as their first day the officers
made it as easy as possible. At noon,
all except those who are billeted at

At 2 p. m. the company mounted
its guard for the first time in the

much. After that, tents were Ditch
ed in the Ocala House garden, where
another good meai was served at 6:30.
At 7:45 nearly every member of
the company attended the services at
the Temple. At 9:45 tatoo sounded
and "taps" fifteen minutes later.
About midnight, the Star's reporter
went out to look at the camp. The
main guard was at the armory. The
reporter, under the chaperonage of a
non-com, visited the camp in the
hotel garden. It's just as well, by the
way, for you to kep away from the
camp after taps unless an officer is
with you. We didn't see the sentinel
in the shade of the tree, but he saw
us, all right. The men were asleep
in their "dog" tents, two men to a

hold two men apiece, but they are

to be mighty hard on them at first,
but before they have been in service
long, six feet by two of dry dirt will
be more comfortable than a bed to
the pampered citizen. We couldn't
see anything of the boys but their
feet, and they were not kicking, so
they must have been doing fairly
well.
Following is the camp routine at
present:
Reveille 5:45 a. m.
Police and sick call 6:00.

ENTERTAINMENT
FOR COMPANY A
SATURDAY EVENING
The reception and ball Saturday
night, at the dormitory, which was so
kindly designed by Mrs. C. V. Rob
erts and Mrs. D. M. Roberts, was suc
cessfully carried out, and gave great
pleasure to hundreds.
The dormitory was a fine place for
an affair of this sort, on account of
the big rooms, once used as class
rooms, and the wide, well-kept
grounds surrounding the house. Some
of the stalwart young defenders of
their country learned their a b c's in
the dance hall, and the succeeding
grades in the dining room. The
shade trees and the shaded illumina
tions gave numerous couples fair
chances to spoon on the benches on
what was for many years the play playground
ground playground for Ocala's youth.
The house was well crowded by
8:45. The two Mrs. Roberts, aided
Ly several other ladies met the guests
and bade them welcome. A great,
big bowl, full of the most refreshing
punch, was a fountain of refresh refreshment
ment refreshment all through the evening. One
old guy drank six glasses, and then
the little Hebe in charge tried to
tempt him to drink more.
The ball room was the big ex-class
room on the south side. It was most
prettily and patriotically decorated.
In a little room in front was ensconc ensconced
ed ensconced Prof. Booe's orchestra Mr. Booe,
violin; Paul Durand, clarinet; Harry
Cole, cornet; Jack Williams, piano.
They made fine music, and every everybody's
body's everybody's feet began twitching when they
struck up.
Capt. Drake and Mrs. Drake, Lieu Lieutenants
tenants Lieutenants Campbell and Marsh, and
nearly all the non-coms and privates
in the city attended. There were
many prominent citizens of Ocala,
ladies and girls present, with good good-sized
sized good-sized delegations from Belleview, Ox Oxford
ford Oxford and other places in the county.
At least 250 people were present.
After several dances, Supt. Brin Brin-son
son Brin-son mounted a chair and announced
that refreshments were ready. The
crowd was marshaled into the other
big downstairs class room and stood
up around the walls, and the ladies
and girls got busy bringing out the
eats. There was a big platefull of
purlo and other good things for each
guest, and another platefull for any
who wanted it. One was about enough
for the average, however. Dishes piled
high with delicious cake were carried
around for desert and there was
plenty of punch to wash it down.
After supper, dancing was resumed
and continued until 11, when the
guests thanked their hostesses for a
pleasant evening and left for their
respective homes.
The Star hopes some more social
affairs will be' given the company be before
fore before it leaves. The boys are going
away for months, perhaps years, of
hard work and danger, and we
should do what we can for them while
they are with us.

A GOOD OMEN
It was almost 9 o'clock Sunday
morning. The captain looked at his
watch and nodded to the bugler. The
bugler saluted and left the armory,
and marched alertly down the street
to the Star office corner, from where
the notes of his instrument could not
only sweep the streets at whose in in-tersection
tersection in-tersection he stood, but curve around
the Broadway corner and make them themselves
selves themselves heard on the public square.
He lifted to his lips the little dingy,
battered bugle, that had sounded the
calls for Company A on the banks
of the St. Johns and the banks of the
Rio Grande, and everywhere between
that the company had stopped. Loud
and clear the first call rang out and
from everywhere within the compass
of its notes the men came to answer.
Scarcely had the sound of the
bugle died away than like an echo
came the solemn but musical clang of
the Presbyterian church bell, calling
the children of its congregation to
Sunday school, as it has at 9 o'clock
every Sunday morning for many
years. And probably, in many other
towns where the bugles were calling
at the same hour, the church bells
echoed them.
It was a good omen. To those that
heard it, it carried some of the spirit
expressed in the sublime lines:
"He hath sounded forth the trumpet
that shall never call retreat;
"He is sifting out the hearts of men
before his judgment seat;
"Be swift, my soul to serve him oh.
be jubilant my feet!
"His cause is marching on."
We Americans have not claimed
partnership with God, nor even
claimed as a right his help in this
war. But we have gone to the aid
of outraged humanity when we might
have safely and snugly fortified our ourselves
selves ourselves at home, and we have reason
to believe that if the Almighty ever
helps a just cause he will help ours.
GUARD MOUNT
Company A's first guard mount in
the war against Germany took place
at 2 p. m. Sunday. These were the
men who went on guard:
Lieut. R. L. Marsh, Musician John
T. Colley, Sergeant Jas. E. Leitner,

Stephens and Wm. R. Chalker, Pri Privates

Each squad stays on duty for 24
hours. It is divided into reliefs, each
consisting of a corporal and as many
privates as are necessary to cover
tne posts, lne sentinels remain on
duty for two hours, at the end of
which time they have four hours rest
There is very little industrial work
as well proportioned and even on the
men as the work in the army.
BE GOOD TO THE BOYS
We have with us this week from
the country adjacent to our city about
a hundred young men. We hope that
every courtesy and kindness will be
extended tnese boys, tor tney are
nearly all boys, few over 25 and most
of them younger. A large proportion
of them are country boys and have
seldom, or never, been away from
their own homes and the homes of
friends. They will be as brave as
any when they get used to it, but it is
likely that homesickness is going to
hit some of them heavy at first. It
will be good for Ocala to cushion the
shock by making them feel at least
next door to home. None of them
have much money, so give them a
nit or a treat wnenever you can.
Show them hospitality by every
means, in your power, for they are
going to fight for you, your families
ar.d your homes.
Out of so many, it is possible that
a few will misbehave, and if they do
be patient with them. If they ex
ceed your patience, call on their own
officers, if possible, rather than the
J police.
Let us try to treat them so that
when they leave us they will remem
ber little old Ocala as one of the
best places in the country they are
defending.

SERMON FOR THE SOLDIERS
There has seldom been so large an
audience in the Temple as there was
Saturday night, when almost the
whole town gathered to worship with
the young men who have so bravely
and unselfishly volunteered in defense
of their country.
The arrangements of the Temple
was very simple, which was in fitting
with the occasion. Most of the com company
pany company occupied the middle section, a
few being with their best girls or
ether friends out in the audience. On
the stage were most of the ministers
of the town, Revs. Gross, Ottmann,
Herndon and Wyatt, besides a choir
made up from among the best sing
ers of the city. They were in charge
of Mr. Wyatt. The instrumental
music was rendered by Messrs. Ten Ten-Eyck,
Eyck, Ten-Eyck, H. O. Cole and Floyd Coleman.
The services opened with that most
appropriate hymn, "Onward, Chris Christian
tian Christian Soldiers," in singing which the
audience heartily joined. Mr. Hern Herndon
don Herndon read the Scripture lesson and
offered prayer.
The sermon was preached by Mr.
Ottmann. It was not long, but it was
full of strong faith, high hope and
deep, wide charity, and greatly heart heartened
ened heartened all who heard it. At its conclus
ion "America" was sung, the meaning
of this grand song probably never
striking so deep to an Ocala audience
before.
Mr. Lester Lucas then sang "Abide
with Me," and his rendition of that
beautiful song went to all hearts and
brought tears to many eyes.
After a few appropriate remarks
from Mr. Herndon, pocket testaments
were handed to all the soldiers who
were not already supplied. Rev. J. M.
Gross pronounced the -benediction,
and the very timely service was over.
