Circle of the Allied Line Steadily Closing
Around the City

SHARP ATTACKS GY BRITISH
The British and French renewed
their attack in Northern France and
Belgium last night. Preliminary re reports
ports reports indicate that they won consid considerable
erable considerable success. The principal blow
was struck by the British on a front
4000 yards from the northwestern
outskirts of Lens to Bois Hugo, north northeast
east northeast of Loos. General Haig reports
that the British carried the first lines
of the enemy at all points and made
satisfactory progress. Hill No. 70,
which dominates Lens, is reported
to have been captured by a Canadian
detachment. Since the beginning of
the attack on the northern end of the
western line, the Canadians have been
making steady progress about Lens.
The new attack immediately north of
Lens evidently is designed to close
around the city from the north. If
the allies are successful they might
force the Germans to evacuate the
city without a difficult and costly
frontal attack.
The French made gains near the
coast in the vicinity of Dixmude.
The Germans are still active with
their artillery on the Aisne front, but
did not renew the infantry attack
last night, however.

At 10 o'clock, the men came in,
broke ranks and had an hour's rest.
Then they lined up again for their
hike to Silver Springs. About sev seventy
enty seventy were in light marching order,
that is, they carried their arms and
canteens, These were the border men,
and the best trained of the rookies.
Besides these were some thirty odd
new men, who haven't received their
guns yet. Altogether there were over
a hundred men in line.
It looked like it was going to be a
strenuous experience. The midday
August sun was blazing down with
full power, and a civilian who got out
of the shade thought he would melt.
However, the little column swung off
with a jaunty step. Captain Drake
and the veterans led, and Lieut.
Campbell with the new men brought
up the rear. The border men had
been on many a stiff er march, but it
was the first hike of the rookies.
The company reached the springs
in just two hours, including ten min minutes
utes minutes rest at the end of the first hour.
The men were in good shape. None
fell out, but one had a stumped toe,
and he and another will ride in this
afternoon.
After reaching the springs, the men
had a cold but substantial dinner, and
hot coffee. Then they rested. A
phone message from Captain Drake
said they were having a good time
at 3 o'clock, resting and many of the
men in swimming.
The company will start on its re return
turn return march at 4 o'clock, and will be
in between 6 and 6:30. The veterans
could make the march in an hour and
a half, but it is the company's first
hike of the campaign, and the captain
desires to make it easy on his new
men.

On the border, last summer, Col

This course of thirty daily lessons is offered to the men selected for
service in the National Army as a practical help in getting started in trie
right way. It is informal in time and does not attempt to give binding
rules and directions. These are contained in the various manuals and reg regulations
ulations regulations of the United States Army, to which this course is merely introductory.

LESSON NO. 3

Nine Soldierly Qualities
The three basic qualities, Loyalty,
Obedience and Physical Fitness, were
treated in the preceding lesson. There
is another group of three soldierly
qualities that are especially needed
during the periods of training, march marching
ing marching and waiting between combats.
They are:
Intelligence,
Cleanliness,
Cheerfulness.
Although these qualities are asso associated
ciated associated chiefly with camp life, they are,
of course, scarcely less helpful in all
other phases of military service.
INTELLIGENCE
Intelligence does not necessarily
mean education, but rather quick ob observation
servation observation and willingness to learn.
There is plenty of need for intelli intelligence
gence intelligence in modern warfare. The Nation National
al National Army will be forced to absorb
within a few months a training which
would ordinarily extend over a period
of two or three years. Those who in intend
tend intend to fit themselves for promotion
should study thoroughly the manuals
and the drill regulations which affect
their duties. In time they should
learn something about map-making
and map-reading, the construction of
field entrenchments, training and care
of horses, signalling, the handling of
complex pieces of machinery, and
many other subjects.
Any practical knowledge that you
may now possess will surely be use useful
ful useful and helpful to you in the army.
Capt. Ian Hay Beith, of the English
army, points out that in the first
British forces of the present war the
previous trade or training of every
soldier was sooner or later utilized.
CLEANLINESS
Cheerfulness is always a prominent
trait of good soldiers. Here again
Americans may be counted upon to
make a splendid showing, even in the
face of any unexpected hardships o
difficulties that may be ahead of us.
There are numerous episodes in Am
erican military history to justify this
confidence.
In January, 1863, the Union army
lay in camp at Falmouth, Va. About
a month before had occurred the dis disastrous
astrous disastrous and bloody defeat of Fred Fredericksburg.

camping ground from which the
troops had started. A little grumbling
might reasonably have been expected.
But the men of 1863 were too good
soldiers to draw long faces. The his historian
torian historian goes on: "The march was made
in high good humor, the soldiers
laughing and joking at their ill-luck
with that comic brightness character characteristic
istic characteristic of Americans in difficult circum
stances."
THREE QUALITIES OF BATTLE
Finally, there are the three battle
qualities cf the good soldier:
Spirit,
Tenacity,
Self-reliance.
Unless a man has these three qual qualities
ities qualities even though he possesses all
the other six in good measure he Is
after all only a camp-fire soldier.
SPIRIT
Spirit fighting spirit is far from
being mere hatred of the enemy or
blind fury, on the one hand; nor is it
mere passible obedience to orders, on
the other. It means cool, self-controlled
courage the kind of courage
which enables a man to shoot as
straight on the battlefield as he does
in target practice. However, it even
goes a step beyond that point. Deci Decisive
sive Decisive victories cannot be won by mere merely
ly merely repulsing the enemy. "Only the of
fensive wins." (Infantry Drill Regu Regulations,
lations, Regulations, paragraph 511).
Like all tne other qualities of a
soldier, spirit can be cultivated, fyi
untrained army seldom possesses it.
But it can be developed. You can and
will develop it until it becomes as
much a part of yourself as any of
your easy-going civilian habits are
now.
TENACITY
Spirit carries a body of soldiers
forward. Tenacity is the quality that
makes them "stick." The thorough
soldier is never ready to stop fighting
until his part of the battle is won.
Tenacity was never better expressed
than in the words of John Paul Jones.
Standing among his dead and wound wounded
ed wounded on his sinking ship which was
"leaking like a basket," he replied to
his adversary's invitation to surren surrender,
der, surrender, "Sir, I have not yet begun to
fight." Two hours later the battle
came to a sudden end when the colors
of the enemy's vessel were hauled
down.
SELF-RELIANCE
Self-reliance is characteristic of the
American, whether he is serving as a
soldier or in some civil occupation.
Much the same quality is sometimes

Washington, Aug. 15. With the
approval of President Wilson, the

referred to as "initiative." It is a
quality needed more than ever before
in present-day warfare. Major Gen General
eral General Leonard Wood, in his introduc introduction
tion introduction to the Field Service Regulations
of the United States Army, says:
"Officers and men of all ranks ana
grades are given a certain independ independence
ence independence in the execution of the tasks to
which they are assigned and are ex
pected to show initiative in meeting
the different situations as they arrive.
Every individual, from the highest
commander to the lowest private,
must always remember that inaction
and neglect of opportunities will war warrant
rant warrant more severe censure than an er error
ror error in the choice of the means."
MAKING YOURSELF STRONGER
The nine qualities which have just
been reviewed are those which every
one of us would like to have for him
self. They aie the essentials of virile
and successful manhood, whether in
the army or out of it. Even the moral
weakling and the slacker : in their
hearts admire these qualities.
Doubtless you have developed some
of them already perhaps all of them
to a greater or less extent. Many a
man has discovered, when put to the
test, that he possessed these qualities
without having himself realized it.
But under civilian conditions it is not
easy to cultivate all of them.
In the army you will have your op
portunity in a few months of training
to strengthen these qualites in your
self. In so doing you will learn to con control
trol control yourself, to take care of yourself
under all conditions, to meet hardshro
I and danger unflinchingly, to be fear
less and self-reliant. At the end of
these few months of training you will
have gained immensely in vigor and
in strength.

CONCERNING THE COWS
Mr. W. F. McAteer:
Dear Sir: Reading your letter to
the Star about the impounding of cat cattle
tle cattle prompts me to have something to
write about, too. I most heartily
agree with your idea of it as far as
you go, but I think you could easily
have gone a bit farther.
The farmers living near town dare
not have cattle because of the con
tinual trouble and expense of getting
them out of the pound. It in turn in injures
jures injures the town because it makes a
farmer buy land further away ana ana-naturally
naturally ana-naturally do his trading and spend
his money at some other place more
than if he were near town. It makes
it harder for a land owner to sell land
near town. Therefore, it is my opin
ion, that it in an indirect way to some
extent, and in a direct way to some
extent, operates against the good of
the town financially as well as pre pre-ventfng
ventfng pre-ventfng the best feeling existing be between
tween between our town and out of town
neighbors.
You mention a cow being injured
by being run and whipped. I have
seen the present pound man (Mr. Hol Hollo
lo Hollo way) unmercifully run and beat
cows in driving them. I saw him in
driving a cow belonging to A. A.
Mathews run and whip her very cruel cruelly
ly cruelly and just as the cow was enteripg
the pen he threw a rock, hitting her
in the side, as hard as he could throw.
I certainly agree that we are tak taking
ing taking advantage of the law to do our
out of town neighbors an injustice,
and I trust that our city council will
come to look at it as you and I do.

The Star is very well pleased with
the promotion of Col. A. H. Blanding
of the Second Florida Infantry to the
rank of brigadier general. He is a
most efficient officer, and has won his
promotion by sheer hard work. Years
ago, when war was undreamed of, we
heard him described by friends as one
of the most careful and scrupulous
as well as industrious of men. The
Second Infantry is proud of his pro promotion,
motion, promotion, and hopes the Florida regi
ments will be included in his brigade.
It is net known who will take com command
mand command of the Second, Infantry, but
Lieut.-Col. Samuel J. Wolfe of Key
West, is first in the line of promotion,
and Colonel Blanding's brother, Maj
John W. Blanding of Gainesville, is
eenior major of the regiment. All
these officers have worked their way
up. Not one has been "caf'apulted
into his position. Immediately after
the return of the Second Infantry
from the border, an attempt was
made to displace Colonel Blanding
and some of the other experienced of
ficers. There was no reason for such
a move, except that their places were
wanted for some of the pets of the
gang of politicians now in power at
Tallahassee. The regiment was raked
with a finetooth comb for complaints
against the colonel. These proceed
ings came to a sudden ending pos
sibly the adjutant general realized
what a disreputable proceeding it
was, probably the war department
dropped him a timely hint; at any
xate, Colonel Blanding remained in
command, and now, less than two
weeks after the regiment has been
mustered back into federal service he
is promoted. General Blanding has
many friends in Marion county, who
are very glad of the deserved honor
bestowed upon him, and confidently
expect to hear of others in the future.

this unsoothing way about slackers:
"No copperheads boasted of their
pacifism in the years following Ap Ap-pomatox.

fought against the draft and rioted to
avoid service spent the rest of their
lives in concealing the fact. They
were vociferous in defense of their
cowardice while the issue remained in
doubt, and that same cowardice guidr
ed them until they died, for they had
no heart to stand on the record and
let their children know what they had
done in the bloody days that tried
men's souls. There are individuals
now who lie awake nights thinking
not how they may serve their country
but how they can avoid serving it.
We call them slackers for want of a
better name, but the white blood in
their veins and the chills in their feet
stump the dictionary. The lexicon
has terms of ignominy, but none
strong enough to describe the re reel

ORANGE SPRINGS FAIR
THIRTIETH OF AUGUST

Marion county will have a good op opportunity

Marion County lair at the meeting
to be held -t O-ange Springs Thurs Thursday,

ned planned to stir up greater interest in the
I:ve stock industry and to plan for the
Orange Springs Fair which promises
to be a greater success than that of
last year.
The big spring at Orange Springs
has been growing in popularity since
the improvements made by James R.
Murphy, president of the Florida
Farms and Homes, Inc., and many
house parties have been given there
by Marion county people this summer,

nearby sections.
Mr. S. P. Hollinrake, general man manager

special arrangements for the day and
to give a reduced round trip fare.
The prospects are that there will be
many automobile parties from both
Marion and Putnam counties.
FORTY-FIVE MILES
TO A GALLON
The government is requesting
owners of automobiles to conserve
gasoline in every way. The best way
that automobile owners can conserve
their gas is to drive only Maxwell
cars, and if they give their carbure carburetors
tors carburetors the proper attention, neither
they nor the government will have oc
casion to kick.
Sunday Mr. John Dozier drove his
Maxwell touring car 45 miles to Dead
river, where the family stopped for
lunch and a careful measurement of
his tank, not by the gauge, but by a
gauged rod measure, fhich is accur accurate,
ate, accurate, showed that he had made the
astonishing distance of 45 miles on ex exactly
actly exactly one gallon of gasoline. There
were in the car four grown people of
more than average weight, two husky
youngsters, two heavy suitcases and
a big picnic lunch hamper.
It may be said that Mr. Dozier is a
careful driver and never speeds or
does stunts with his car, also that it
never needs repairs and in consider considerable

He walked among us, just one of the

He played or studied, had his smile
and jest;
He blamed and praised, he had his
hates and joys,
We somehow numbered him among
the rest.
But, come to think, his likes were al always
ways always for the right,

And he never volunteered but where

men ought to fight.
With bouncing step, along the street
he'd swing,
With lifted chest and laughing, lev level

But he wouldn't hurt the smallest,
meanest thing.
He'd pet stray dogs that most of
folks despise.
A small, stray kitten always used to

To tag his heels each evening to his
gate.
He walked among us, just one of the

We never knew his dreams and his

But I recall the shadow of the cloud
Upon his face, and in his eye, the

The fire, the cloud, led him, like
