A very interesting plant known as Sim-

was discovered in south Florida by the
world famous scientist and naturalist, Dr.
Charles Torrey Simpson. The plant belongs
to the Amaryllis family. Its stem and pink-
ish white flower are out of all proportion
to the bulb. Although it is seldom seen in
northern Florida one of these -are plants
grows in the garden of Mrs. W. D. Diddell
of Jacksonville.
Recognized as one of the outstand-
ing naturalists of America, Dr. Charles
Torrey Simpson, who died in 1932, con-

Coming to Dade County in 1903 after many
years with the National Museum, Dr.
Simpson was promtly lured into a career
of research by the enchantment of Florida's
vast tropical wonderland. Following a per-

produced In the Lower Florida Wilds"
which is known the world over for its
colorful nature pictures of south Florida.
This was followed by "Out of Doore in

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the. printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.


WHO WILL BE GOVERNOR IN CASE-
Governor Cone may be "doing fine," ac
cording to the doctors, but that doesn't pre
ent the political shapers-of-destiny fron
,asting out political lines and feelers for the
election of a new governor "just in case."
It is generally assumed that D. Stuart Gil-
!is, president of the Florida senate, will take
over the gubernatorial duties "in case," anc
--lold the office until the senate meets in 1939,
when the post would pass into the hands of
the succeeding president. But this is not true.
ihe state constitution provides that in the
event a governor resigns, dies, is impeached,
or for any other reason becomes unable to
perform the duties of his office, the office
-,hall be declared vacant and the president of
the senate shall act as governor until the next
general election.
So, "in case" a new governor is required
.for Florida, Senator Gillis would fill the of-
ice, but a new governor would be named by
ihe people in November. If the call came af-
ter November, Gillis would take the office
Snd hold it until the legislature meets, when
j. Turner Butler, president-elect, would take
-...ioer the reins. He would remain in office un-
Eil the general election in 1940.
And, says the Okaloosa Messenger, "the
!937 legislature made it impossible for the
ate Democratic executive committee to
:iame a nominee for any state-wide post, at-
i.r becoming unduly alarmed by the rumor
:hat our old friend Dave Sholtz had jockeyed
rhe committee into an agreement to name
lim as the Democratic nominee for the late
U. S. Senator Park Trammell's post. The
;-gislative act removing this authority from
hie committee specified that any major post
.mttst be battled for by nominees selected at
: special primary but it failed to
aime a date for that primary. In simpler
Swords, if the governor's office should become
cant 48 hours before the general election
*':ite, a special primary would have to be
.lled on that short notice, and a Democratic
':nminee selected then.
"And the crux of all this is that Florida's
,liticos are convinced that such a special
.-'imary will have to be called this year .
.:-d already the hustings are reverberating
ith the under-cover dickerings of aspirants
the short-term job that will be at stake.
"The situation is so serious today that in-
irmal caucuses are being held all over the
ate; political enmities are being smoothed
er, and political scars are being healed, and
'e boys 'in the know' are getting ready for

BRING IN THOSE CATALOGS
The Port theater last Saturday offered free
admission to all children under 12 years of
age who brought in a 1938-39 mail order cata-
log to the afternoon show.
While a considerable number of the-books
were turned in at the box office, the result
was not up to the expectation of Manager
Bill Turner, and so he is making the same of-
fer tomorrow, except that anyone-young or
old-bringing a catalog will be admitted free.
Everyone is urged to co-operate with the
theater in this drive to rid the city of this
scourge. If every last one of these "wishing
books" were taken out of circulation in Port
St. Joe the results would be amazing. The lo-
cal merchants' business would take a decided
upswing, money would be freely circulated
and all would benefit.
'Those who patronize the mail order houses
believe they are getting merchandise at a
cheaper price than they can buy it at home.
Perhaps they are-but they are getting a
cheap and shoddy grade of merchandise, and,
in addition, when the cost of a money order
and postage or freight is figured into the cost
they generally do not save a thing-or at
most, only a few pennies. Meanwhile they
are taking money out of local circulation
and sending it to a distant city where it is
used to build up that city and froWy, whence
it never returns.
The Star heartily endorses this move be-
ing made by the Port theater and urges
everyone to at least give up their catalogs
this one time and spend their money locally
just to prove that if this mail order buying is
stopped for but sixty days the pickup in busi-
ness and general well-being of all will more
than justify the "sacrifice."
Let's see all of those 500 mail order cata-
logs that recently came into Port St. Joe
through the mail piled high in the theater
lobby tomorrow, and in addition another five
or six hundred. We know they are in town i
and we want to see them rooted out and
burned.


YOUTH, THE MAGICIAN

Those of us who are puffing up the hill of
old age, stopping now and then to get our
breath, may not be able to materialize the
dreams that have kept us warm from boy-
hood on. That, however, does not prevent us
from facing the future cheerfully. We have
our eyes on young magicians. The youngsters
who are coming along today will make real
the ideas that to so many of us seemed so
desirable-but impossible.
Once when he was a commencement ora-
tor, William Allen White said that about all
any commencement orator can do is look
back upon the world as he thinks it was. Then
he considers the world as he thinks it is.
"Finally," says Mr. White, "in his receding
perspective he discloses the pictured phan-
tasm which he hopes will be the future.
'ThIereupon, his young listeners n ay see mir-
rored in the gloss of his picture the world
which they think they will make. It is a pleas-
ant exercise."
Mr. VWhite then told his listeners that he
came to them out of one dream world that is
memory. H[e said: "You go into a visionary
world that is hope. I tell you of- the things
that I imagine are true in my world. You
hold in your hearts the picture of your world
that shall be."-Shining Lines, Mergenthaler
Linotype Company.

EXTENSION FORESTER

Announcement of the appoint-

New Boys' Prison

age outnumber negroes among

1938. Breaking and entering and
robbery outrank other crimes
charged against them.
The figures are shown in a six-
months' report of the state prison
bureau compiled for Nathan Mayo.
commissioner of agriculture, who
is in charge of the prison system.
In the age group 15 to 21 years,
there were 72 white boys. five of
then- with previous records, and
57 negroes, five with previous
records. Between 21 and 26, there
were 67 whites andi 80 negroes; 26
to 36 years, 101 whites and 115
negroes; 36 to 50 ye-rs, 65 whites
and 59 negroes, and over 50 years,
21 whites and 12 negroes. The to-
tal for white men was 325 and for
negroes, 323. There were seven
white women and 17 negro wo-
men committed in the period.

Of course when this movement
gets well under way and its tre-

fact that some of the biggest men

Jesse James Not

Such a Bad Fellow

Says Wauchulan

Claims To Have Known Not Only
Jesse and His Brother, But
Many Other Outlaws

So Jesse James was a bad guy
eh?
All your life you've heard mur
derous twice-spun tales about the
famous outlaw who was know
for his bad character. And, no
doubt, as stories grow when told
and re-told, the story of Jesse
lan:ps has reachedd the height to
where he was one of our country's
Ietl-nest men."
But the many bad stories about
Jesse-or at least some of them-
have been repudiated by a Wau-
chulan, T. C. Pickins, who claims
to have known not only the no-
torious Jesse James and his
brother, Frank, but many of the
other old outlaws.
Mr. Pickins knew the James
boys in the early 80's out in Colo-
rado; in fact, they were friends
of his father and he first remem-
bers them when they spent the
night at his father's homestead.
The James boys liked to rob ex-
press trains, in fact it' looks as
though they made that practice
their number one hobby.
Jesse, according to Mr. Pickins,
was a friendly port of man, and if
you were his friend you really had
a friend, because Jesse stuck by
his chums. In fact, he'd give a
friend his last dollar and would
be tickled to do so.
Jesse was a crack shot with a
pistol, and, says Mr. Pickins, he
didn't go 'round shooting his fire-
arm at every Tom, Dick and
Harry. He loved to play poker,
but he wasn't one of the so-called
'card sharks," and he didn't ap-
preciate cheating. He would in-
lulge in a poker game with any
