Mayo Is Not To

Be a Candidate

For Governor

States He Will Announce Later
For Commissioner of
Agriculture

For some time rumors have
been circulating throughout the
state that Nathan Mayo, commis-
sioner of agriculture, would be a
candidate for governor .e.xt year.
Commissioner Mayo put an-'ad
to these rumors last week when
he announced at a county-wide
celebration at Silver Springs in
Marion county that he would not
be in the governor's race.
"There have been rumors going
around that I woutd be a candi-
date for governor," he said, "but
I want.to tell you right now that
I am not going to run for gover-
nor. I will announce later for the
office of commissioner of agri-
culture."
With Mayo definitely out of the
race, the ranks of prospective
gubernatorial aspirants is thinned
down to approximately 24.

EX-PUBLISHER IS VISITOR
Bob Harris, former publisher of The Grace-
S.ville News, 'was a visitor in The Star office
Monday. After twenty. years or so in the
newspaper game, Bob finally got his fingers
in the government pie and immediately quit
the Fourth Estate. He's got a soft job carry-
ing the mail on a star route out of Graceville
and has put on considerable weight, in our
opinion, since he took over the route.
But we're for Bob, even if he has got store
teeth, and feel that any newspaper man who
can line up a lifetime job like that is entitled
to it after struggling for twenty years put-
ting out a country newspaper.

Ever since the White House proclaimed Ar-
gentine beef to be cheaper and superior to
American-grown beef, and ordered the navy
-department to buy the South American prod-
uct for the navy mess tables, the administra-
tion has wished it could awake and find the
whole thing a dream. It hopes the congres-
sional tempers which reached the boiling
point over the question will cool and that the
matter will soon be forgotten. But according
to a Port St. Joe man who recently made a
trip to the national capitol, Washington res-
taurants aren't helping much. They are care-
ful to point out on their menus: "This beef
is U. S. grown."

Are you stubbing your toe, Mr. Merchant?

about the advertising in this paper? Do you
read it-consistently? It is a bag of gold to
many of our readers.
In our columns you will find the adver-
tisements of alert, progressive merchants and
manufacturers who seek to tell you some-
'thing they think you ought to know. This
advertising is news about the very things
that interest you most-articles that will
save you money, lessen your work, or add
materially to your comfort and well-being,
especially during this hot weather.
Thritfy men and women in Port St. Joe

them it is a plain, every-day proposition-a
duty they owe themselves and their purses.
It tells them where they can buy exactly.
what they want at a price they can afford

Advertising pays them. They make it pay.
It will pay you, too. Read it.

Larkin Cleveland,' editor of the DeFuniak

better half to wear "shorts" during the hot
weather. Lark confesses that he likes the con-
founded things. We'd give a good cigar (not
the two-fers we smoke) to see Lark's hairy
legs exposed to public view.

A fellow came into the office the other day
and asked for a quarter to get something to
eat. We asked himi why he didn't get a job,
and he replied thit there wasn't much doing
in his line. Inquiry developed that he was a
window-box weeder.

Red Bugs Can

Be Controlled

Method Discovered That Assures
Complete Immunity From
Bloodthirsty Chiggers

Wonders will never cease!
For years and years we have
suffered from annual infestations
of our person by the bloodthirsty
red bugs, harvest mites or chig-
geo'--wba<-.*r, you prefer to call;
them-and now the United States.
Department of Agriculture comes
forward with a method of relief--
guaranteed solid gold and a yard
wide.
These pests, which have made
many an outing a sorrowful mem-
ory; may be effectively .controlled
by securing a small quantity of
very fine dusting sulphur and
dusting it on the parts of the
body likely to be affected.
Then you can sit Dack and re-
lax and tell the red bugs to go to
blazes or any other place that
you may care to mention.
I! the bugs have invaded your
lawn or garden, appiy dusting sul-
phur at the rate of one pound per
1000 square feet, or 50 pounds to
the acre. During the season, from
May to August, three applications
will usually suffice. The first
should be applied as soon as the
chiggers appear, and the others
at two weeks intervals.
Of course, this last doesn't ap-
ply to individuals, unless they are
in the habit of not bathing from
May to' August, when probably
the three applications would be
sufficient.
Praise be. and glory halleujah!-
Next time we go bait, grunting,
we're going to get some sulphur,
as we generally come back from
such expeditions literally crawling
with the cussed things.

NATURAL MISTAKE

A customer selected a summer
dress at a local department store
the other day. Looklngbout, she
chose what she thought would be
rn appropriate flower to go with
it.
"How much is thi flower?" she
asked'.
"Flower?" said the saleslady,
"that isn't a flower, that's one of
our latest style hats."

Enjoyable Visit

At Midway Park

Dead Lakes Form Scene of Beauty
When Viewed By Light
Of Silvery Moon

Editor and Mrs. W. S. Smith
spent. a most enjoyable week-end
at Midway .Park on the famous
Dead Lakes.
The lakes have long been noted
for -the fine fishing.therein, bu itin
our opinion operators of camps
along the. shores should begin
stressing the beauty of the lakes
by moonlight ana organize excur-
sions over the lakes after dark.
Through the courtesy of Dillon
Linton, chief of guides at Midway,
Ye Ed and his frau were taken
Saturday night for a ride up and
down the lake in a motorized
bateau, and while we have always
been struck by the beauty and
charm of the tree-studded body of
water by day, our breath was
fairly taken away by our voyage
Saturday night. We are at a loss
for words to tell of the beauty of
the lakes by the light of a full
moon, and all we can do is to tell
everyone to see it for themselves.
We brought home a fair string
of fish, considering the fact that
the moon was full-and real fish-
ermen tell us that's a bad time of
month to go fishing-and were
well content with our outing.
Mr. and Mrs. 3. H. Shoemaker,
operators of Midway, and Mr. Lin-
ton ("Dill" to h"s friends) ex-
tended us every courtesy and done
everything in their power to make
our visit a pleasant one.
There's a peculiar thing about
Mr. Shoemaker. He operates this
fresh water fishing camp, and yet
he states he's never been out on
the lakes fishing or otherwise. He
prefers salt water fishing. He had
just returned from a deep sea
fishing trip, but had no luck. He
brought his bait (mullet) home
with him and' ate them for sup-
per. This is the first time we've
heard of a fisherman eating his
bait.

FORBIDDEN FRUIT
Lady: "I see that tips are for-
bidden here."
Waitress: "Well, so were apples
in the Garden of Eden."

"I gave my wife a pearl neck-
lace for her birthday."
"But don't you know that pearls
mean tears?"
"Sure, I know it. She cried un-
til she got 'em."
