But they are iit thinking of the bullets whizzing
past them; of the shell bursting over their heads.
They are intent on one thing to scale that bank,
take the bridge head and win the day.
And these men are made of the same stuff as all
true Americans who read these words.
If we are the

The Tampa was built in New

of 1,181 tons. She had been in

All Florida suffered in the loss
of the gallant men on board the
Tampa, but especially is this true

crew were from that city. Thus
are the horrors of war brough
home to us all, and Tampa and the
friends and relatives of the dead
have the sympathy of us all.
It is but the barest mockery for
Germany to talk o"f peace while

cities in evacuated territory con

The News is informed that in all
probability the big hotel at Pun
ta Gorda will be tendered to the
Government for a convalescent
hospital , and vocational school.
Lcadiner business men of Punta
Gorda are interested in the move
ment, and the offer will no doubt
be made. ,
It would certainly be an ideal
location, and the government
could do no better than locate a
convalescent, , hospital at vthat
point. This hotel has 500 rooms,
with spacious grounds, and the lo
cation is ideal from a health point
of view. It fronts on the beau
tiful and peaceful Charlotte Har
bor bay, which affords ideal facili
ties for boating, bathing, fishing,
There is no more attractive lo

place of recuperation for wounded
soldiers, and for the establishment
ofa vocational school for Uncle
Arcadia is interested in any
thing that will benefit DeSoto
county or the government, and
our people stand ready to co-operate
with Punta Gorda and render
all possible assistance in bringing
this thing to pass. ,
The committee on new enter
prises form the Arcadia Commer
cial Club." of which J. L. Jones is
chairman, stands ready to render
every possible assistance to runta
Gorda in this matter. j .
Puiita Gorda has no board of
trade at the present time, but such
matters are looked after by volun
teer boosters, and the leading citi
zens of the place will probably
get behind this movement and go
after the enterprise. Arcadia

The U. S. coast guard cutter
Tampa was torpedoed in the Brit
ish channel near the British coast
on September 26th and no sur
vivors were picked up. For some
reason, the sinking of the Tampa
was not reported by the navy de
partment until October 3rd.
The crew, consisting' of 118
men, was lost. Of these, thirty
four were Floridians and nineteen
from Tampa. ,
Capt. C. Satterlee, of the coast
guard, . commanded the cutter.
There were ten officers and 102 en
listed men in the crew and all
were lost. One British officer and
five civilians were also on board
and were among the victims.
The navy departments report
says that for some reason, the
Tampa had forged ahead of the
convoy and there were no wit
