GIVE THEM A LIFT
The following from the Tampa Tri Tribune
bune Tribune is applicable in Ocala and every
other town where soldiers are en encamped:
camped: encamped: "Isobel Field, of the Vigilantes,
gives tne ioiiowing hint to automo-
blists, which is especially applicable
to Tampa at this time. She says:
" 'Give the soldiers a lift. If you
have an extra seat in your automo
bile as you go flying over the country
these hot summer days don't let a
passing soldier trudge miles on his
way. it s little enough to do for one
who is giving his life to his country
Don't wait for him to ask. Just slow
up and say 'Want a ride?' and see
how his face brightens. You will feel
the better for his cheery 'Gee, you're
a Hie saver. Give orders to vour
chauifeur never to pass a walking
soldier. Sammy will have his work
cut out for him 'over there' fighting
for you and me. Let us make it as
easy as we can for him here.'
"There are countless little ways in
which the citizen can help along the
soluiei and make him feel that the
heart of Tampa is with him. He is
going to do a great deal for us for
every man, woman ard child of us
and we can't do too much for him."

"I wonder why they keep Tip this ef

To Tell an Officer of Our
Army From & Private
A MILITARY mau can tell at a
glance a soldiers rank, and It
will surely interest the layman
to know just bow he can read the sol-
dier's rank and arm of service by a
glance at the lesprinss or cap or coat
Take, for instance, the cord on the
hat. If it's a plain blue cord it be belongs
longs belongs to an infantry soldier; if it's red
the wearer belongs to the artillery and
if yellow to the cavalry. The hat cord
worn by an oiSicer is of black and gold
with two little jrold acorns.
When, caps uro worn the soldier's
cap is the same shape as the officer's,
but it is minus the braid and bears in
front the crossed arms of his service
and the reginiental number. The offi officer's
cer's officer's cap has a band of braid and a
coat of arms indicative of the state.
Regular officers have the United States
coat of arms.
The eolkirs of the coat also tell their
tale to the experienced eye. The sol soldier's
dier's soldier's collar has a disk of bronze with
the 'name .of his state; if a regular it
has "U. On the other side of the
collar another disk gives his regiment,
company and arm of service. The offi officer's
cer's officer's collar has no disks. It tells his
state, arm of service and regiment.
If a regular officer the state is omitted
and the symbol "U. S." is used. The
arm of service is indicated by crossed
rifles for infantry, crossed sabers for
cavalry and Crossed cannons for artil
lery. First lieutenant-has a silver bar
and if a captain two bars.
If a coat sleeve has two rows of
stitching and nothing else the wearer
Is a private. That of the officer is dis distinguished
tinguished distinguished by a row of brown braid.
The overcoat of a private or non
commissioned man simply has a. cuff or
else a strap of cloth, which buttons the
sleeve tight around the wrist. But
the sleeve of the officer's overcoat is
cuffless. If it is perfectly plain with
out braid the wearer is a second lieu
tenant. A soutache of one row indi
cates a first' lieutenant; two rows, a
captain; three rows, a major; four
rows, "a lieutenant colonel; five rows,
a colonel. If general officers the
stripes are broad, black and horizontal
Even the buttons at the back of an
overcoat wilr tell you at a glance
whether the wearer is an officer or oth
erwise. "If the two buttons are bone
it is the coat of an officer. If they are
bronze and have the coat of arms of
the United States it proclaims the
wearer to be an enlisted man.
The leggings of a soldier and those
of an officer are also different. Those
of the former are olive drab canvas
with lacings, while those of the latter
are of leather.
How the Autoist Should Care For
It is difficult sometimes to determine
just when a tube is unfit for furthei
use. Porosity in a tube usually indi indicates

small cracks can be observed in the
rubber if it is stretched and examined
carefully. The next development is
splitting when the air pressure be becomes
comes becomes too great for the tule to bear.
If the rubber in a tube is "live" it
may successfully bear as many patches
as a beggar's coat. But due care must
be exercised in the vulcanization of
the patch to the tube that too large a
portion of the tube around the patch
is not cured. If jMirttons of the tube

Lack of proper care of the tube is
i-espuusihJ' for most of the troubles
iire r.sers experience. Sufficient talc
between casing and tube prevents the
generation of heat, which vulcanizes
the tube to the fabric of the casing.
Tube splitting is occasioned by the
slipping of the tube letween the casing
and the rim, which soon results in a
"pinch." The remedy is careful apply applying.

i Beginning like an ordinary cold
JS attended with blocked nasal pas- &
H sages and characterized by par-
oxysms of sneezing, the disease
SI may at first attract little atten-
j tion, especially among children S
flf when it Is often mistaken for the X
Ji? usual cold. Unlike the latter
Jit condition, however, the nasal dis- 2
B charges usually remain thin ad J
watery and become thickened JSf
only toward the termination of
the disease. Cough is a com-
V mon symptom, while asthmatic
attacks may often occur. These X
t symptoms are very depressing to $?
t patients, who often become very J
& low spirited. f
Kr The disease was first described
in the early part of the nine- JH
& teenth century, when it was !S
& termed autumn catarrh, since it
occurred chiefly in the late sum- Ml
mer and early fall. There is a J
i type of the disease which is also
prevalent in the spring, while in &
the southern states the affection i
V occurs all the year round.
ti The disease is caused by the
iSf action of pollen of certain plants JSf
ft which Is carried by the winds J5
t and finds lodgment in the nos- J5f
trils of iersons who are particu- 13?
J3? larly sensitive to this affection.
