THE PUNTA GORDA HERALD, PUNTA GORDA, FLORIDA Thursday, October 10, 1918. - ' -Mik j : TtieyVe im to Fair targets, every one of these men, for the, German riflemen and machine gunners hidden behind the parapet 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. Win If we are the same stuff, let us prove it. Let us get into the fight as they do to the limit for Victory I njS) This Space Contributed to Winning the War by C other vessels. Floating debris from the Tampa, a life belt and two dead bodies in rfaval uniform vere found. The dead were not identified. The Tampa was built in New port .News in 1912 and was a ship of 1,181 tons. She had been in the coast guard service, but was doing convoy duty at the time of the disaster. She was well known in Tampa where she had made frequent visits. All Florida suffered in the loss of the gallant men on board the Tampa, but especially is this true of Tampa, as nineteen of the 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 these outrages and the burning of cities in evacuated territory con tinue. Unconditional surrender is the best terms she should re-cieve. CLASSIFIED r tw Advertisements Inserted under this head for 5 cents per line each insertion, six words counting a line.

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, etc. ' There is no more attractive lo cation in South Florida for a place of recuperation for wounded soldiers, and for the establishment ofa vocational school for Uncle Sam's men. 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.

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 nesses to the explosion, the. shock of which was felt by those on the - FOR SALE Four-room house with four largo lota ready for estivation, fence!, with barn and outhoususVowe block frow town limits; several bearing fruit ' tret: only $100.00 cash, it sold at once.
