With the British Armies in the

of American troops to "come under

"How would Americans face it?"
he snapped back wrathfully. .'.
Yet the question was a fair one.
Seasoned British officers say- they
still feel nervous under shellfire.
v "Young troops, just out, when they
get their first taste of it, sometimes
feel pretty sick for -& While, and show
it. It's quite natural." So spoke an

During this entire period he missed
but one tour of field luty, being out

SAVED HIS SOLDIER
Gallant Act of a Young Amerfesa
Officer
With the American Troops in
France, (By the Associated Press)
Nov. 21. The American army was
thrilled today by the heroic action of
a young lieutenant in saving the life
of a soldier. A private, a member of
a patrol, lost his way and "went to
sleep in a shell crater in No Man's
Land last night. The patrol returned
and it was found he was missing. At
daylight the Germans saw the soldier
near the line and opened fire with
rifles and grenades. He remained in
the crater. A lieutenant whose home
is in Wyoming, saw the man
was in danger of immediate death
and went out over No Man s Land
through a hail of enemy machine gun
bullets several hundred yards, got the
soldier and led him back to the Am American
erican American lines amid cheers. 4
After being rescued the soldier said
that when he looked over the top of
the shell crater the enemy saw him
immediately and the first bullets "and
grenades nearly got him. The atten attention
tion attention of the lieutenant was attracted
by the firing and through field glasses
he saw the shraynel helmet of his
man in the crater. He gave orders for
no rifle or machine gun fire on the
enemy lines and then started out,
making part of the way through a
depression in the ground.
.The Germans turned their atten attention
tion attention to him and for some minutes bul bullets
lets bullets whizzed on all sides, but none hit
him. The soldier said that he did not
know in what direction his own lines
were otherwise he would have tried
to get to them himself.
Detachments of the American army
who have just returned from a tour
of duty in the front line trenches
were badly in need of shaves when
they arrived at their billets. On
many faces beards had made a good
start and the soldiers first thought
was to procure razors.
The American soldiers are ready to
swear by the new caps they wear un under
der under their shrapnel helmets. Most of
them removed their helmets as soon
as they were out of the fire zone and
officers remarked that the caps great greatly

It had just 21 names signed to it,

IS IT A FRAME-UP
The biggest paper in the state
couldn't talk any better news than the
little Bushnell Times, in the follow following:
ing: following: Now what kind of a political frame frame-up
up frame-up have we in the re-instatement of
Sheriff .Dowling by Governor Catts?
About six months ago the governoi
removed Sheriff Dowling of Duval
county ,and; appointed Mr. Lewis of
West Florida to be sheriff of that
county" He charged Dowling with
"mis-feasance" .and "mal-feasance."
Saturday's daily papers reported that
the governor had re-instated Dowling.
It was intimated that Senator Park
Trammell c and Attorney General
Swearengen had been in consultation
with the governor and that such in interview
terview interview resulted in the return to of office
fice office of Sheriff Dowling. Sheriff Dowl Dowling
ing Dowling is jquoted as saying that it came
as a surprise to him, that the govern
or had just given him a hearing or.
the charges and found that the charg charg-esiwere?
esiwere? charg-esiwere? not sustained by facts. This
is a pretty state of- affairs. If the
charges could not be sustained Dowl Dowling
ing Dowling should neverThave been removed.
If they were sustained he should not
have been re-instated. It is a late
day to give a man a .hearing on a
charge six months after conviction
without" investigation. It certainl
convicts the governor of either acting
without investigation, which is
wrong, or now admitting., that he
wrongfully convicted a man on the
evidence. Whichever way you take it
it certainly doesn't look nice for the
governor's judgement. But it looks
more like a political combinaton ol
some kind. The-f people of Florida
have had enough of political combina
tions and trades. If Dowling wasjact
he should stay out of of fice. If he was
not;' guilty" of the charges he should
not have been removed. Sunday's pa papers
pers papers stated thatDowling had agreed
to make no charge for services during
the time he was out of office. This is
further evidence of a "compromise"
of a matter which should stand or
fair on its merits. It may be good
politics that the governor and Dowl-
inghaye played, but it appears to us
that the people will look at. it' with
suspicion."
The Star is reliably informed that
if Mr. 'John D. Robertson will meet
Dr. Chace in debate at the Temple,
an admission price to be charged, and
the ; proceeds to be given to the Red
Cross" Society, one prominent citizen
will" take ten tickets at five dollars
each.. It's the Star's opinion that un under
der under those conditions the Temple could
be filled and a good sum realized foi
the Red Cross: Of course people
would not be expected to pay $5 each
for tickets-the $5 offer being only
a starter. But at any reasonable sum,
say regular theater prices, the house
could be filled. The arrangement foi
this debate, lacks only Mr. Robert Robertson's
son's Robertson's consent. Judging by his dis
paraging remarks about Mayor
Chace's oratory, the bad lights, etc.,
the debate would be pie for the ex
and. would-be again mayor. We hope
he will accept. We will take a seat
ourself, in the bald-headed row.
