If Company A reaches France, it

are by no means unfamiliar. Cap Captain
tain Captain Edward Drake was an officer in
the British army for twelve years,
during which time he saw active ser
vice in many different parts of the
globe. So far as the Star knows, he
has had more actual experience with
real war than any other officer in the
Florida troops. His training will be

themselves lucky then that they have
a commander to whom the roar of
battle is a familiar sound.
Some people have arraigned the
Star because it wants opposition to
the draft sternly repressed and pap papers

measures of the government denied
the use of tho mails. We have no
cpology for taking that position. We
have no desire that criticism of the
government's measures should cease.
The government will make a good

mistakes may cavrse them to be cor corrected

being repeated. But that is very dif different
ferent different from advising resistance to the
selective draft and other measures.
Law-abiding people do not advise re resistance,

of peace. It is the worst kind of a
law-breaker that advises it in time
of war. And it seems to us that pap papers

among the lawbreakers and forfeit
their right to print, even as Emma
Goldman and Berkman forfeited their
right to speak.

CARDS IN THE CAMPS
I notice that among the different
articles to be put in the comfort bags
made for the soldier boys, is included
a deck of cards. Now, why not leave
out those cards and put in a small
Bible or hymn book instead? Then
when the boys had any time of their
own, they could sing the good old
songs and perhaps it might be that
sometime those songs would bring
back to some boy his motner or
father's advice, or cause him to re
member that at home there were
prayers ascending to a Father's
throne for him. Anyway it would be
time better spent than around a card
Only a few weeks ago I was asked
by a mother who has two boys in the
army, for some religious tracts of
any kind that I could get for her as
one of her boys had written to her for
something of the kind, and he told
her in his letter how the other boys
seemed to enjoy religious literature.
How about it, fathers and mothers,
who have soldier boys, had you rather
have him receive a deck of cards than
a Bible or song book? I believe there
are some who will agree with me,
while there will be many others to
Please print this little clipping
taken from the Times-Union and writ
ten from the American training camp
"There was an unfortunate occur
rence in the camp last night. Two sol
diers became engaged in a quarrel
over a card game and one of them
kicked the other several times in the
stomach. The latter was found dead
later in his billet. His assailant is
Mrs. Levi Grantham.
Sparr, Fla., Aug. 5.
We would suggest to our corres correspondent
pondent correspondent that it be left to the individ
ual soldier whether he has a pack of
cards in his kit or not. It is a ques question
tion question he has a right to decide for him
Men and women probably obtain
more quiet and restful amusement
trom playing cards than irom any
other form of recreation. A pack of
cards can be carried more easily than
any other device for amusement and
can be used in more different ways.
The fact that some men use cards
to gamble with is no reason why they
should be denied to the great major
ity who do not. Men who want to
gamble will gamble anyhow.
American soldiers are not inveter inveter-ately
ately inveter-ately given to card playing. They
prefer outdoor sports. But when
nothing else is accessible, a bunch of
them can sit down and quietly and in
offensively amuse themselves for
hours with a pack of cards.
The incident to which our corres
pondent calls attention is regrettable,
but because two hot-headed men had
trouble over a game of cards on one
day is no reason why cards should
be denied to several hundred thou thousand
sand thousand who use them moderately and
sensibly every day.
For that matter, there is certainly
more quarreling ana probably more
betting in the army over baseball
than there is over cards. Would our
correspondent deny our young sol
diers the privilege of playing base
ball, or seeing the game played?
The American army is made up of
several hundred thousand represen
tative young men, who know how to
behave themselves, and do behave
themselves, better than the same
number of civilians. The Star is in
favor of leaving them and their
morals to their officers, who know
about a hundred times as much about
what they should have and not have
as the average person who hasn't
been in the service.
Company A paraded on the public
square Monday afternoon, but found
conditions unpropitious for guard
mount. As soon as the people saw in
the Star that guard mount was to be
held, they began coming in their cars
and on foot and pretty soon had the
available space too much constricted
for the exercise. The company, how
ever, gave a brief drill, which was
much admired, and then marched back
to the armory, where the guard was
changed. Guard mount in the every
day life of a military company is
simply relieving the guard of the 24
hours before, and passes with no more
notice than any other event; less, in
fact, than some. But it can be held
with great elaboration and impres impres-siveness,
siveness, impres-siveness, and when this is done it is
sonfething very well worth seeing. A
single company is not supposed to
give a formal guard mount, but the
officers of Company A say that if the
band will turn out and play for them
some evening, they will be pleased to
have the ceremony in full on the pub
ic square. The Star hopes this majf
be done. It will be one of the things
for our people to remember when
their soldiers have gone.
We clip the following from
Asheville, (N. C.) Citizen:
In extending a welcome to Major-

the Tennesseean,. of that city, referred
to this popular soldier as the "Kitch "Kitchener

this knowledge has lent a certain

doubt that he should lead the great

this army and the aftermath, The
Tennesseean well says:
"When the finished article the fin

will be but justice and fairness that
Major-General Wood, the ranking se senior
nior senior officer of the American army,
will be given the opportunity to lead
the army he will have created. This
work in which he is now engaged is
sacrifice on the part of General
Wood. His training, his profession,
his abilities would ordinarily demand
his being sent abroad to lead the first
of our forces against our German foe.
"But he was ordered to create the
real army, and he is too good a sol
dier to do aught but to give full play
to his great talents in the work of
training camps while the opportunity
for glory, for renowned service on the J

"The American people are just.
They know his sacrifice and disap

who has kept the faith by giving
him the command of not only a few
divisions but of the greatest and
grandest army in history the one he
will have in great part trained."

and ability of General Pershing in
saying that the best interest of the
cause for which this country is fight fighting

Wood in command in France as soon
as he has finished the work or organ

under the selective draft, for that
post is his by right of seniority and

nation's popular idols; he is popular
with all ranks and classes, with the
exception of certain officials in the
war department. As the Tennesseean
has stated, he is the "Kitchener of

down bearing-down pains, and would just drag and
had no appetile. Then ... it would last

and my health was awful.
My mother bought me a bottle of
Cardui, and I began to improve after
taking the first bottle, so kept it up till I
took three ... I gained, and was well
and strong; and I owe it all to Cardui.
I am married now and have 3 children

female trouble, and just resort to Cardui
if I need a tonic. I am glad to testify to
what it has done for me, so as to help
