James K. Lawton, president of
the R. 0. C. association of the
Department of Florida.
"Now is the time for reserve
officers to take an active part in
military affairs," said Major Law-

n.adance at each class and seven
-hours credit for each service as

Testimony of Doctor, Friends
And Relatives of Light-
house Keeper Results In
Verdict of Death By Per-
son or Persons Unknown.

A second jury impaneled to in-
vestigate the death of E. W. Mar-
lir, assistant keeper at the San
Blas lighthouse, whose body was
found Wednesday of last week
lying on the floor of a small
shed with one wrist slashed and
fourteen knife wounds in hig
chest and throat, convened in city
hall. Wednesday and after hearing
a number of witnesses, returned a
verdict of "death at the hands of
a party or parties unknown."
Clem Brooks, uncle of the dead
man. stated that to his knowledge
no one had ever threatened Mar-
ler and that as far as he knew
Marler had no occasion to com-
mit suicide, that he did not ap-
pear to be tire type of man who
would take his own rife.
"I do not believe he committed
suicide," said Mr. Brooks from
the witness chair. "The cuts on
his body indicated to nme that he
had been murdered. No man liv-
ing could -stand to stab and cut
himself so many' times. He was
the type of man who would not,
in my opinion, do such a thing.
"It is true he owed some money,
but I had arranged at the bank
for him to make a loan, so that
could not have been a motive."
The widow of the slain man
and Ernestine Marler, his daihgh-
ter. in testifying, both expressed
sin ilar opiniions.
S. R. White, head keeper of the
light, stated that he and his wife
and small daughter left for Port,
St. Joe for supplies about 9
o'clock the day or the tragedy,

PECULIAR COCOON
ON DISPLAY

T. W. Wilson has on display
in his real estate office adjoin-
ing the Kerr jewelry tore, a
peculiar cocoon found by Char-
lie Stebel of White City.
The cocoor, about an inch
and a half in length, is com-
pletely enclosed by small twigs
neatly clipped and fastened to
the outside of the silk-like con-
tainer.
Both Mr. Stebc: and Mr. Wil-
son are looking forward eagerly
to the hatching of the cocoon

RUMORS RIFE

IN REGARD TO

TEST PILING

MANY BELIEVE RAYON MILL
TO BE ERECTED, BUT
OFFICIALS MUM

A test piling placed by engi-
neers at the corner of Fifth street
and Long avenue this week to de-
termine exactly how much weight
in the form of a building the soil
at that point will bear, is causing
considerable speculation among
residents of. the city.
One 'rumor' has it that a. bank
and office building is to be placed
on the plot of ground, while an-
other rampant rumor, w which
seems more logical, considering
the amount of ground cleared re-
cently by removal of the cottages
in "Blossom Row," is that a huge
rayon mill will be erected to
manufacture rayon cloth from
pine pulp.
However, neither rumor can be
confirmed, as officials of the du-
Pont interests refuse to confirm
or deny reports and smilingly
change the subject to other mat-


ters of the day.

snakelike about his body. It was
necessary to use a torch to cut
the cable from about him.
. Richard Nichnn got caught in
a conveyor and received a broken

THE DAY WILL DAWN SOON

A test run bf paper was made at the St,
Joe Paper Company mill Saturday and the
day will soon dawn when we will see the
huge plant working at 'capaci t, turning out
thousands of rolls of kraft paper manufac-
tured from pine logs and turning loose a
flood of pay envelopes that will mean in-
creased prosperity and greater development
for Port St. Joe.
Dawn of this new day will not only mean
greater prosperity for Port St Joe and Gulf
county, but for the thousands or land owners
of Northwest Florida, south Alabama and
south Georgia, for this'huge mill will draw
upon the forest lands of this entire territory
for its needs.
This new industry offers a very real op-
portunity to these land owners, and if prop-
erly managed their forest lands will produce
a perpetual cash income. -


SLISTEN TO 'EM ALL

,t: fPerhaps v.ou, Mr. and ,Mrs. Voter, have
already made up your respecltie minds for
whom you will vote in the senatorial race.
SIn fact, you probably have, for very few
voters are swayed by speeches made by of-
fice-seekers, and if no stumping tours were
made by candidates there would be little
change in the ultimate results.
However, whether you are a Pepper sup-
porter or a rabid Sholtzite-apparently the
other two candidates cut no ice in this sec-
tion-we urge you to turn out and listen to
them when they speak in Port St. Joe,
merely as a matter of decency and in the in-
terest of good government. Most of us
merely attend speeches of those for whom
we have already determined to vote-so
much so that ordinarily the number of peo-
ple turning out to hear a speech generally
will indicate which way the political wind
will blow.
Hear not only the senatorial candidates,
but hear. every other candidate who visits
Port St. Joe between now and May.


We are in receipt of, a copy of the "Sugar
Cane Press," published in Clewiston by the
United States Sugar corporation in the in-
terest of their employes. The .paper contained
no advertising, but was filled with livrenews
of the vast plantation. It was also profusely.
illustrated.

CHOOSE CAREFULLY AND WELL

Florida, in May, is to elect the entire mem-
bership of its house of representatives and
about one-half the membership of its senate:
In many respects, the legislature: is the
state's all-powerful official body. It makes
the laws, levies the taxes, appropriates the
public's money, directs the model of opera-
tion of the state government, regulates
county and municipal governments.
The legislature has the power to make or
mar the future of the state.
Nothing could be better for Florida than
a wise, safe, constructive legislature. And
nothing could be worse for Florida than a
careless, extravagant, destructive or corrupt
legislature.
The men nominated in the May primary
will dominate and control Florida's next
legislature. It is the responsibility of the
voters to name these men. They should ex-
ercise great care in the selection. Each can-
didate's i-ecord should be checked. No mtan
should be elected to the legislature whose
character and record do not give assurance
that he is capable, honest; free of entangling
alliances, above political chicanery and self-
seeking.
It's up to ,you voters-your legislators are
your most important officials-they make
YOUR laws, levy YOUR taxes, spend YOUR
money.-Tampa Tribune.

If you feel like complaining of your lot,
check up on how you fare compared with
others in the world. Remember, no matter
how old the model of car you drive, there
are millions of people who never owned a
car of any kind, but are forced to walk
long distances. Remember that no matter
how humble your home, there are. millions
upon millions of people who live in homes
a great deal less desirable than yours. Re-
member that no matter how, shabby you are
clad, there are millions of persons, who .dj
not have enough clothing to keep-warm. Re-
member no matter how simple your fare,
there are millions of people in the world
who would be thankful for the scraps from
your table. Remember all this, and if the
truth were known, you are faring better than
you deserve.-Titusville Star-Advocate.


Truman G. Futch, candidate for the state
supreme court, will not tack up signs along
the highway, use the radio or sound wagons
in his campaign. Sounds good. We've al-
ways advocated a law that would require all
candidates to scour the countryside after
election and remove the placards defacing
the scenery.


You can cast reflections upon a man's an-
cestors, poke fun at his hobbies, laugh at his
'bay window or bald head, and kick his dog
around, and still obtain his forgiveness-but
he'll hate you for life if you tell him he has
no sense of humor.-St. Louis Star-Times.

After looking over the entire field, we are
inclined to think. the politest of all our tax
collectors is the filling station man. He also
sells gas and oil.-Kansas City Star.

Garbo and Chowchowski will wed, we un-
derstand from the headlines. Sounds like the
old-fashioned "chow-chow" our grandmother
used to make.

Life is made up of getting and giving and
forgetting and forgiving.

The most priceless pictures of all are those
we hang on the walls of our memory.

Usually when there's little in the head,
much comes out of the mouth.

Worry is interest paid on trouble before
it comes due.

The self-tooted horn never sounds so well
-.s when toottedl by others.


Stardust and

Moonshine

By The Other Fellow


I was out walking my favorite
path through the piney woods
Sunday in a new spring hat and
with an air more jaunty than
alsual, that' I might note and ap-
prove the signs of the changing
'seasons. There I met and had
speech with a disconsolate lamb.
"After all," said the lamb, re-
proachfully. "there is no valid
reason why I should have been
overlooked and neglected." .
And sparkling tears ran down the
lamb's chops. "Besides
which, I am tie most famous
lamb of all."
,"I know," I said. "Stop me if'I'm
wrong, but you are the iamb that
Mary had."
The, lamb wept some more.
"That's the trouble with peo-
ple," said the unhappy creature.
"You accept the nursery lamb as
literature and make a hero of a
myth. I am not that lamb
at all. Guess again."
Perceiving that tais was to be
the guessing game of my child-
hood, and not wishing to be out-
done my a mere, lamb, I searched
desperately for an idea. "May-
be," I said "you are Lamb's Tales
from Shakespeare."
"Lambs never got their .tails
from Shakespeare," the young
sheep snapped, ,while. I reflected
that this was tha first time I had
ever seen a lamb do such a thing,
having always considered them
gentle annd polite.
"Ah, I have it!" I 'exclaimed,
"you are the shorn lamb to whom
the wind was tempered."
"Indeed not-I admit I have
been shorn, but as for a temper-
are you insinuating anything, sir,
in regard to my temper?"
"No, no," I hastily interjected,
"but you might tell me just who
you are, for remember, I have a
lot of walking to do and must be
on my way."
The lamb dried his eyes on the
back of his forefoot and tried to
look impressive.
"I," said he, swelling' out his
chest to a remarkable extent, "am
the lamb which came in on the
first of March. I work in part-
nership with a lion who goes out
if I come in and vice
versa. And would you believe it,
that lion is most exasperating?
I have done the best I could for
him for lo, these many years, but
he sometimes gets out of hand.
And just the other day .
But I went swinging on my way.
I could tell by the way
the lamb acted that, once dis-
covered, it was ready' to settle
down for an endless conversa-
tion and conversation I
regard as a purely personal per-
ogative.

I stand correctedd and also duly
informed as to the "Stardust"
poem (or so I thought) found at
the postoffice last week. One can
learn something every day.
A reader writes as follows:
Dear Mr. Other Fellow:
In reading your last week's
column, I noticed that you
wanted to have "Stardust" fin-
ished.
Mr. Other Fellow, don't you
know that "Stardust" is a song?
At any rate I am taking it upon
myself to tell you. I like it
very much and had the idea
you named your column "Star-
dust" because you liked it, too.
However, apparently I was
wrong.
I'm not the one who wrote it
in the postoffice, but I have
done the same thing in school
often. I'm sure. she was feel-
ing blue and lazy. If you ever
hear tho song, I'm sure you will


-understand what I mean.
I have been considering con-
tributing, to your column for
some time, but have never got-
ten around to it. I've been
thinking that maybe, after all,
procrastination IS the thief of
time, as I've always heard.
Usually I do ':aings without
thinking even one. time, but this
just i;-em so-oh, somehow I
feel as if I am just too sentti-
mental, and that is my way of
passing a lot of my time-so
Swhy worry other people with
my simple, silly, sorry way of
killing time?
I think you like to write
things too (I mean things you
don't put in y6ur column),
things you are saving for
what? Everybody lives for the
future. Those who don't live
for the future-w-ell, they live
on memories -or -ygone days.
Why can't we wake -up and en-
joy "TODAY? Then, maybe I'm
wrong. Maybe we enjoy this
working and playing and just
don't know it. Mother says no
one can be really happy unless
they 'are busy.
You might gat this letter-
and still you might not. This is
the worst letter I've ever vfit-
ten, but I keep saying: "He
won't know who wrote it-I'm
not going to send it-"
If you dare mention this let-
ter in your column I'll murder
you. If I mail this letter-my
friend just dared me to-she
will buy me a coke-so if I get
thirsty you get this letter.
One of your many
READERS.
Well, my dear lady, I see that
you became 'exceeding thirsty-
for which I am duly thankful, as
your letter pulled me out of a
tight spot-I had nothing to com-
plete this week's column.
I would like to hear the song,
"Stardust"-perhaps I will some
day. I will appreciate any
articles you care to send in and
will give them utmost considera-
tion.
I really don't agree with you
that everyone lives for the future.
. We should all realize the
value of time and snatch and en-
joy every moment of it. No idle-
ness, no laziness, no procrastina-
tion; never put off till tomorrow
what you can do today-and all
that sort of gush, for-
"Procrastination is the thief of
time;
Year after year it steals, till all
are fled,
And to the mercies of a mo-
ment leaves
The vast concerns of an eternal
scene."
I really don't care to be nur
dered at there present moment ...
but it WOULD make a good front
page story for The Star: "Other
Fellow Felled By Indigant Con-
tributor." what a head-
line!

WOES OF SPECIALIZATION
"Say, doctor, I asked that
nurse to put a hot water bottle
at my feet and she stuck up her
nose and walked away," com-
plained the patient.
"What else could you expect?
That was' the head nurse," ex-
plained the doctor.
"Oh. do they specialize that
much? Then get me the foot
nurse."-Pearson's Weekly.

SOME DRUGGIST
Two druggists in Port St. Joe
were discussing another druggist,
(no names mentioned).
"Say what you please about
Florida last year, and it is esti-
great druggist.
"I'l admit that," replied the
other, "but don't you think he
slices his ham too thin?"

FOREST OWNERS

ENCOURAGED BY

PAPER MAKING

ST. JOE MILL GIVES MARKET
AND PERMITS THINNING
OF YOUNG STANDS

Establishment of the huge pa-
per mill at Port St. Joe does not
alarm forest owners in this sec-
tion who are growing timber
crops. Instead, it is encouraging
them because a pulpwood market
permits thinning in young stands
and improvement cuttings in older
ones.
Such forest culture operations,
which are. required of owners
from whom the St. Joe Paper
Company purchases wood, not
onmy return some income 'to forest
owners in advance of the final
harvest, but also greatly speed up
the growth of the best trees
which have been reserved.
The paper mill and the lumber
mills can both obtain their re-
quirements from tne' same forests
when the owners treat their for-
ests as crops of trees and cutI
them to obtain diversified prod-
ucts.
Pulpwood Is By.Product
In common with most other en-
terprises, timber growing yields
both products, and by-products.
.Pulpwood, because it need not be
'of *arge size, nor" obtained from
straight, perfect trees, is a forest
by-product.
It can be obtained from stands
of young timber in need of thin-
ning and from those trees or por-
tions of trees too crooked or
knotty for first quality saw-logs
or piling. Cutting pulpwood, so as
to improve a forest -by removing
defective, and crowded trees, not
only returns an income by pro-


during a commodity actually
needed by industry, but also in-
creases the quality of a forest cut
by ordaining thac oriy prime
trees will mature to saw-timber.
Furthermore, the trees reserved
will reach a -merchantable size
much sooner than would be the
case in an unthinned forest.

CUTTING WHALES IN TWO
The Newport, of the New York
and Cuba Mail Steamship Com-
pany, ran into a school of sperm
whales off the Delaware capes on
the last southward trip. It was
about 8 o'clock in the morning,
and Captain John P. Sundb'erg
says he could see' millions of them
from the deck. He estimated the
width of the school at a half mile
and its length at 20 miles.
The sea was smooth, the sun
was shining, and all the passen-
gers were on deck. The vessel
was steaming at 15 knots. Some
of the whales were 70 feet long.
One of them, about 65 feet long,
was struck 'by the bow of the
steamship at right angles and
about in the middle of the body.
The shock nearly threw the pas-
sengers from their feet. At the
moment of the -collision the whale
threw up its flukes and deluged
the fore part of the deck. Com-
missioner Alden S. Swan, of the
Brooklyn Bridge, who was looking
over. the prow, was among the
passengers who got drenched,'
The whale, Captain Sundberg
says, was cut in two, the fore
part going to one side of the ves-
se. and the after part to the other.
The sea was colored with blood.
The head was driven into the
water so far that when it came
up it arose six feet above the sur-
face in plain sight of those who
were looking over the side.
The shock threw the steam
steering gears temporarily out of
order, but otherwise the vessel
was not damaged. A few minutes
afterr a second whale was cut in
two, almost in the same manner
as the first had been. The head
went to the port side, but the
body passed under the bottom,
and was struck by the propeller
blades. The effect of this on the
machinery alarmed the engineer
in the engine-room, who thought
the blades had struck a drifting
spar. The course of the vessel
was then changed, and she ran
out of the school.-New York

man of the caucus; Miller, of
Pennsylvania, secretary, and Mc-
Cook, of New York, Undergraff,
o- Iowa, and McClure, of Ohio, as
assistant secretaries and tellers.
After the roll call, candidates
were placed in nomination, as
follows: Frank Hiscock, of New
York; Joseph W. Keifer, of Ohio;
John H. Kasson, of Iowa; Mark
H. Dunnell, of Minnesota; L. God-
love Orth, of Indiana; J. C. Bur-
rows, of Michigan; and Thos. B.
Reed, of Maine.
From the 1st to the 15th ballot
Keifer led, making gradual gains
on his opponents. The 13th bal-
lot was thrown out as it was
found to contain one vote more
than the number or members in
the caucus. On the 15th ballot
Keiftr received 61 votes, Hiscock
34, Kasson 16, Reed 13, Burrows
11, Orth 7, Dunnell 1-total 145.
On the 16th ballot there were
many changes ana Keifer made
large gains from Hiscock, Bur-
rows and Kasson. Immediately on
announcement of the result, His-
cock moved to make the nomina-
tion unanimous' and the- motion
was instantly carried amidst the
,general applause.

City Board Talks

Of This and That

Many Matters Are Discussed, But
Very Little Action
Is Taken

The board of city commission-
ers at their meeting Tuesday
f night discussed many matters,
e became deeply engrossed in col-
n umns of figures and heard several
s complaints, but very little action
t was taken.
The ordinance prohibiting erec-
tion of garage's or garage-apart-
Sments on residence lots for living
5 purposes prior to construction of
the main dwelling, was up for its
e second and third reading and was
passed, to be .effective immedi-
ately. Mayor J. L. Sharit and
Commissioner B. W. Eells voted
for its passage, while Commis-
sion'er B. A. Pritigeon voted nay.
An ordinance (o:;ug away with
Sthe $2 sewer connection deposit
Where householders already have
paid a $5 water deposit also re-
ceived its second and third read-
ings and was unanimously passed.
Horace Soule appeared before
the board and stated that if the
City would furnish the labor he
would furnish material for con-
structing a bridge to make the al-
ley in back of the St. Joe Hard-
ware store accessible to trucks.
This 'the commissioners readily
agreed to.
The board also authorized City
Engineer W. R. Gait to secure suf-
ficient material for construction
of small bridges over ditches to
make 'other alleys passable.
Garbage, the question of 'roving
cattle within the city, home ex-
emption, interest on bonds, hand-
ling of storm waters, trucks on
the main streets, double parking,

salary raises and many other
minor problems were cussed and
discussed, but little was done
about them.

MARLER MURDERED
(Continued from page 1)

"I think Marler was murdered,"
continued Mr. White, "because of
the manner and position of the
wounds. Marler had always got
a.ong well with everybody, had
no domestic troubles, and was in
good spirits on the morning he
was found des:i."
Ji.on being queried as to
wr cther or rot he was afraid to
co- tinue living at the lighthouse,
\Ir. Vhite said: "Yes, I am afraid,
because I believe someone is try-
.na' to get our jobs. Several
threats have been made to pre-
vious keepers by persons wanting
the job at the lighthouse. I'm
afraid to. stay tnere-afraid that
some desperado will get me. And
'if Marler was murdered they
might get m'e."
'T:hen qu ztloned as to whether
Marler carried any insurance,
White stated that Marler had in-
formed him that he carried $3000
insurance with the government.
Dr. L. H. Bartee, who viewed
the body, said: "I don't believe it
was suicide. It would not be pos-
sible for a man to stall himself
so many times and then practic-
ally cut his wrist in two, or for
a man to cut his wrist so deeply
and then stab and cut himself 14
times in the chest and throat."
' The wounds in the chest near
the heart and in the throat were
so deep, one of the witnesses said,
that when embalming fluid was
pumped into the veins by the un-
derfaker it spurted from three
cuts on the chest and from the
deep slash across the neck.
The body of Marler was found
lying at the end of a work bench
in th-e shed used by the dead
man as a work shop. Blood had
collected in a large pool two or
three feet across in a low place
on the floor, but a peculiar cir-
cumstance was that two other
large pools of blood were found,
one near a tool chest at the rear
of the shed, upon which blood
was splashed, and one extending
from under the bench across the
floor to the largest pool, seeming
to indicate that Marler had tried
to crawl under the bench to the
door, which was blocked by the
bench. There were no trails of
blood leading froni either' of these
two pools to the body.
On the work bench w\re found
Marler's cap with a package of
cigarets lying in it, arid on the
end of the bench, near the body,
lay a whetstone which ordinarily,
according to White. was kept in
the tool chest. Bloody finger-
prints were found on one of the
bench legs near the body, seem-
ing to indicate that Marler had
tried to rise to his feet.
Fingerprints on the bloody bat-
chet and knife have been photo-
graph'ed and will be compared
with the prints of Marler on file
in Washington.
The jury conducting the investi-
gation was made up of R. C. Rec-
tor, foreman; Adolph LeHardy,
Dr. L. H, Bartee, G. P. Gary, J.
3. Bragdon and A. E. Harrelson.

service were present at the in-
