Fort Bliss and the Border
Are Menaced, but the
"Enemy" Is Routed.
Fort Biles is safe, if pot impregnable,
for five troops of the 22d infantry not
only defended it, but routed its attackers.
It waB all part of a little war game
that was played out there Tuesday morn
ing, while business men were just going
over their morning maiL
There are some soldiers of the 23d
camped at Washington park. A large
force of a "foreign nower" crossed the
"border from Mexico and almost routed
them. Hurriedly a messenger was dis
patched to Fort Bliss for aid. Five com
panies of the 22d, commanded by Capt.
Isaac Newell, tied their shoestrings and
started to the rescue. Down along the
road that runs from the fort, .just west
of the reservation, they hurried at a
pace that would have made tenderfeet
wonder. Along the hard paved road they
walked, aid vancing rapidly. Finally they
readied the plant of the ELPaso Chemical
and Fiber company. '."here they halted.
Scouts had spied a large force of the
"enemy" entrenched on a hill about one
mile to the southeast.
This enemy had to be met and disposed
of before the march could be continued
on to Washington park, to rescue their
comrades. Work must be quiei ana
tertain. The men were placed in posi
tion. The pack mules were driven to the
front and the machine guns unloaded and
put in position. Almost immediately,
within the flash of a second, the rat-a-ta-ta,
grrrnT, of the machine gun was
heard. Then came the spit, spit, spat
of the rifles. One, two. three, an hun
dred of them, sang their song of defiance
to the men entrenched on the hill.
The defenders of the fort scattered
ami each man picked out a place that
afforded him shelter, stopped a while,
and then crawled up the hillside to the
place where the enemy was entrenched.
The fire crew hotter, the air was filled
with smoke and the smell of powder.
The lust for blood was in the heart of
every man who loved his country.
"Enemy" Is flouted.
Along the trail were many dead and
wounded (theoretically). On the hilltop
the enemy still kept up its fight until
finally the commander, Capt. Wm. M.
Fassett, bade Jus men make their get
away as fast as possible. He and his
two companies of the 22d. or what was
left of them, scurried down over the
hillside and reformed on the south side
and marched back toward Washington
park. The, defenders of Fort Bliss kept
up their advantage and continued their
march to the southeast and to the rescue
of the troops at Washington park.
Blank cartridges were used, nobody
was injured, not even an eyebrow was
scorched, but it was proved to the satis
faction of all that the fort is safe fro'n
invasion by any party of enemies that
might attack it.
Tactical Rides by Officers.
s Commissioned officers of the 22-J have
prepared for just such maneuvers as this
by their weekly tactical rides each Mon
day under the guidance of Col. D. A.
Frederiek. commander of the regiment.
The officers ride to a given point, ar
ranga for the- earrying out of .certain
details and 'each one expresses his opin
ion. One of the officers lays out his plan
of attack each week, and the others rri
ticise it. express their opinion of how
it should be done, and a practical 'School,
similar to that at the war college at
Fort Leavenworth. Kan., is -arned our.
For instance. Monday they played that
a hostile force was at Alamogkirdo. They
were defending El Paso and an advance
guard of the enemy had been seen by
their Scouts at Tobin. They formed the
patrol, issued orders and proceeded to
annihilate the enemy in much the sam
fashion as they would in war.
TESTS MADEWITH .
NEW MACHINE GUNS
returned to the fifing line, and another
test was made with the second gun.
However, this gun became jammed sev
eral times and failed to function per
fectly. It was taken apart and it was
found that the ejector was not working
properlv. having become dented in some
way. The gun was then recoiled, it
having become very dry and a test was
made to see if it would work. It was
trained on a small target hillock not
.-r distent and tore up the ground, scat
tering the dust.
Officers at Fort Bliss are of the opin
ion that this gun is a good one and think
the test Monday was a good indication
of what it would do under war conditions.

Monday afternoon, on the rifle range

The test was conducted by Lieut.
Frederick B. Terrell in command of the
machine gun platoon of the 22d infantry.
Two new guns of the BeneUMercie type,
a French machine gun, were givenia test
and proved their worth.
Up on the hillside, about 1700 yards
from the firing point on tlie range, the
targets were et. The front row was
that far distant. Exactly 25 yards be
hind these were three more, another set
was placed an equal distance behind
these, and then a fourth row was ar
ranged 25 yards behind.
The width was 25 yards and it 'Wf-S
proposed to cover the zone with rapid"
fire and destroy the enemy supposed
to be there, no one beinc able to see an
enemy at that distance under such con
ditions. There was a brisk wind blowing
off the mountain, but this did not in
terfere with the firing.
Lieut. Terrell and the scouts, who had
placed the targets, retired to a fence a
quarter of a mile distant and waited for
Epr of the gun, after having given
the sjgnal by "wigwagging that all was
"ay for the shooting.
The first gun functioned perfectly
after the range had been found, schen
one shot was fired. A steady pour of

of the bullets struck stones and the jack

Housework is hard work without Gold
Bust; with it to save half your time and
labor, it's a joy and satisfaction.
GoW Dust cleans everything about the
house from cellar to attic and cleans
it better and quicker than ' any other
. product, device or method that was ever

this out; we're talking to those who
haven't and are consequently doing
their work in a longer, harder way:
The use of Gold Dust will saveyourj
time, spare your back and make your,
home as spick and span as a new pin!
If you have never used Gold Bust,
either make a bee-line for your grocer's
at once or call him on the wire and'
order a package. It will do all and
more than we claim for it.
You can buy a large package of Gold
Dust for 5 cents.
Use Gold Dust for washing clothes and dishes,
scrubbing floors, cleaning woodwork, oilcloth,
silverware and tinware, polishing brasswork,'
cleaning bathroom pipes, refrigerators, etc., soft
