SHADE FOR THE FARMHOUSE.
"The civilian in reading stories of
battles and accounts of marches and at
tacks by an army in times of war
finds many expressions that be does
not clearly - understand such, for In
stance, as references to independent
cavalry, the advance guard, advance
cavalry, point and flank patrols, the
support, the reserve, the main body
flank guard and rear guards and it is
reasonable to believe that there is con
fusion In many minds as to signifj
cance and relation of these things,"
said an army, officer.
"Let us assume that a division is on
the march, and, by the way. a division
is the basis in the United States or
ganlzation for the mobile army and if
a unit made up of all necessary arms
and services complete for independent
action incident to ordinary operations.
"One or two marches ahead goes the
independent cavalry, which seeks to
check the enemy's cavalry -and send
back information as to the enemy's
movements' and his intentions. This
cavalry is so far to the front that it
could not prevent the enemy slippinp
in between it and the following army
and could not prevent the enemy's
patrol from observing the movement
of the troops. Tbns other precautions
are taken, and one or two marches be
hind the independent cavalry marches
the advance guard.
"First in the advance guard Is the
advance cavalry, commonly one squad
ron, which sends ahead a point or
leading patrol and sends on both sides
to march across country or on roads
paralleling the line of march small
bodies called flanking patrols. All this
is to clear the country of the enemy or
give timely notice of "his approach or
his presence. Four or five- miles fn the
' rear of the leading patrol rides the ad
vance party of the advance cavalry
"In the rear of the advance cavalrr
marches the support, commonly form
ed of one regiment of infantry and n
mounted detachment of engineers
Five hundred yards ahead of the sup
port marches its advance party, com
posed of one company, and from 30
to 500 yards ahead of the advance
party is its 'point patrol, and other
patrols may be sent out on the flanks
or to places on the line of march
where they can get good views of the
"About 1,000 yards behind the sup
port marches the reserve in the fol
towing order in the United States
army: One battalion of infantry, one
battalion of artillery, one regiment of
Infantry, one company of engineers
less the detachment wit the support
an ambulance company and perhaps
a detachment of signal troops. One or
two miles behind the reserve marches
the main body. If danger Is suspected
on either flank, flank guards are sent
out, and they may be mere patrols or
detachments of all arms, according to
the requirements of the situation. Be
hind the main body marches the rear
guard. Its component parts are gen
erally as far behind the main body as
those of the advance guard are in front
of it, though on a night march it draws
closer to the main body.
"This careful and elaborate disposi
tion of troops on the march is to se
cure the division against surprise, to
prevent small parties of the enemy de
laying the march and. If the enemy Is
encountered In force, to hold him long
enough for the main body to prepare
for action and take up the best posl
tion offered by the country.
"The arrangement and position of
the various forces as given above,'
concluded the military man. "are. as I
said at the beginning, the usual dis
position of advance troops of a di
vision on the march, and for larger
commands than a division you want
to increase the strength of the Inde
pendent cavalry, advance cavalry and
patrols, support and reserve, and also
increase the distances. -In this you will
see the reason for all the relatively
small but frequent and sharp collisions
during the early stages of a big bat
tie." Washington Star.

farmer can plant trees which in a few
years will add greatly to the comfort
