Company A now has a mascot, the

Private Lawtorr Sims has long tried
to recruit "Dixie' in Co. A; he tried
to carry him to the Mexican border.
Lieut. Marsh lent his persuasive pow powers,
ers, powers, and Capt: Drake, who knows a
good thing when he sees it, examined,
passed and accepted Dixie as a mem member
ber member of Co. A, with all the privileges
of a mascot. So last Saturday when
our sojer boys were being so lavishly
entertained at Silver Springs, Minnie
and I hitched up our little old Buick
expense wagon and started out for
the Springs, with Dixie sitting proud proudly
ly proudly on the back seat. (If there is any anything
thing anything Dixie does like 'to do, it is to sit
up on the seat of a real moving auto
mobile.) He had his first view of
Ocala and expressed his approval by
wiggling his short stump of a tail.
He met a number of sojer boys and
liked their looks. He also met a num number
ber number of other people who wanted him
badly, but onward we bowled to the
Dixie did not know where he was
going, but he knew he was on the way
and he soon arrived." My, how he did
like those sojer boys. He eyed them
and sized them up and he knew right
then that the die was cast and that
he had met his calling. He mixed with
them and showed his appreciation by
eating every bone that was thrown to
him; those that he could not eat he
carried off and buried in the sand to
be resurrected some other day. The
boys made much of .him and I know
they will be good to him and teach
him his place as a good little rookie
should be taught. When the right
time comes and he has learned his
place and the boys drill and parade,
their hearts will swell with pride to
see good, faithful little Dixie trotting
along in his place, ready to do or die
in defense of any one of his defenders
in Co. A.
Dixie is a little bulldog with his tail
and ears cut short and his hair cut
long. He has big, intelligent eyes and
a shapely head that is ever on the
move. He suffers from a severe case
of antipathy to cats, squirrels or any anything
thing anything with a long tail. You see, in his
infancy an accident deprived him of
the best part of his caudal appendage
and it left him minus, and whenever
he wants o wag his tail he tries to
wag it and looks behind to see why it
don't wag and he sees that there is
no tail to wag, and whenever he sees
an animal that can wag its tail it
makes him mad and he wants to fight
about it. He knows that he is just as
good as any animal that wags a tail
and he is willing to fight to prove it.
When Dixie gets across the big
pond if any big German tries to hurt
any of our boys Dixie will bite him
good and hard and show him just how
hard a little Florida crackerdog can

Our friend Bloom, seeing in the

SOUTHERN TIRE QUALITY
Southern Tires contain more cubic
area of contents of material (not of
air'space) than other tires. Size for
size they weigh more, and will give
an unusual amount of service. You
oversize your tires to get extra
weight and material. You get that in
