INFANTRY DECIDES BATTLE While there have been many discus sions as to tho lelative value of the different brandies of an army, theio U no doubt, according to a writer In the peelal war number of th ScientllH Vmerian of September 5, that It Is the nfantry that wins battles. Willie it is I robable tho success of s jattla will depend to a laruo extent ot. tho support of the field artillery, It l certain that tho principal and most im portant arm is the Infantry, which in practically every case must decide th Until Issue. Tho cavalry may be the first to be drawn Into a battle, and the artillery may destroy the enemy's artil lery, hut a battle Is never won until th Infantry has driven back the enemy' lines. Tho usual mod of advancing for the Infantry is to deploy them in a lln with a lone Interval between ea"h fco'.ditr This, naturally. Is for the purpose of offering a smaller target for the enemy It makes it more difficult, however, for the lea Jem to keep as good contml over the men, and for that reason one of the objects of fle'J oiillleiy In to matte the enemy s troops deploy early. The Infantry auldier Is armed In all the countties with a rlflo and bayonet The rillo is the weapon upon which re liance Is placed, the bavonn being usl only as a lait means, when In 8 hand-to-hand en otii ter with tho enemy.

The newspapers arc disci cctly silent at to what this general mobilization (which is admitted) specifically purports, but It Is plain from Germany's iccent action in Luxemburg, Belgium, the Sound, the tielt and the high seas thut she is full resoHed to stick at nothing to sccuh hor ends, and that the Scandinavian countries must prepare themselves fui all eventualities if tiny aie to mnlntain a shred of their ancient Independence Plenty of Finnish and Swedish sleamt-'-are now dally bringing rusiiKer i i,v from Raumo to Getle and Stockholm. An olllcial announcement lias been issue .1 i the effect that thenceforward nelthei fustians nor Germans would be allowed to land in Sweden, except ns guamntct-d through pubien.-i r.i. am' i ' one omaion only; a number ot German passengers were thu sent rj.i k u. ...i.. ..
