As St. Joe Named
Hall Built and Preparations
Made for Reception of
(Fourth of a series of articles on the rise
and decline of the old city of St. Joseph.)
The next political move was the
.annual election of a delegate to the
legislative council lf the territory.
St. Joseph proposed Peter W. Gau-
tier Jr., while the opponents put up
.Hiram Manley. The former, well-
,nown and popular, was elected,
ljuch to the consternation of the
g pporters of the, old town of Ap-
However, during the next session
of the council he displayed as much
wisdom as shrewdness. The two
i.lportant bills passed by the body
which related to St. Joseph were in
all probability sponsored by him.
'The first one provided for the for-
mation of a new county, to be
known as Calhoun, from portions of
Franklin, Washington and Jackson
counties. St. Joseph was chosen as
the county seat.
It was probably the wisest thing
that could be done under the cir-
cumstances, and was so recognized
'by the Apalachicolians, whose pub-
li. spokesman, the. Apalachicola Ga-
ztrte. commented thus: "The legis-
lative council will thu free (if
theii pow'aIs bould prove equal lu
the tajrti i to'iegl.
ance, without running foul of our
rights and interests."
The Constitutional Convention
The other law mentioned above
designated St. Josephc as the,meet-
'inug place of tke convention that was
to draw up a constitution for Flor-
ida. This may, be considered the
,greatest political triumph ever won
(by the Saints. In passage of the
bill, Gautier's hand appeared more
.than once. The opposing Gazette
quoted a letter, from him in the is-
sue of February 7, saying that the
bill was. now up for the third read-
ing. On the 19th, after the law had
passed, the same paper, declared:

Opening Day On Lakes
Draws Large Number
Sunday saw the lifting of the two
months closed season on fishing in
the Dead Lakes and it is estimated
that about 1700 anglers were on
hand to dunk worms and other
types of bait.
Excellent catches were reported
due to the fact that the water was
on the rise. Fishermen in the know
took advantage of the fact that the
willow flies were hatching out and
used the little cusses for bait.
Opening day on the lakes for the
previous three years saw 1,500,
1,880 and 1,962 anglers on the wa-
ter, with respective catches of 14,-
&35, 17,296 and 21,190 fish. It is es-
timated that about 20,000 fish were
taken last Sunday.
Operators of fish camps on the
Dead Lakes report that practically
all accommodations were sold out
for this week and that they antici-
pate ,business to -be exceptionally
good for the next" three or four
There will 'be no closed season on
the lakes in future.
Mrs. Anna'Balkcom of Tallahas-
see was a visitor here last week

Plans Take Shape for
County Health Check
Everyone Fifteen Years Or Over
Urged To Take Advantage
of Free Examinations
By LILLIAN F. McNAIR
The ground floor laid in' April for
the forthcoming "multiphasic" or
"Four-Way Health. Checkup" took
shape Tuesday evening when of-
ficers and members of the Gulf
,County Tuberculosis & Health As-
sociation,a.nd citizens interested in
the health of the community met in
the elementary school building.
The agenda for this meeting em-
braced locations, schedules, days
and hours that the "twin-trailer"
teams will be in each community of
the county. Volunteer workers for
each community are now being
contacted and their names will be
Great enthusiasm was manifested
by the 35 attending this meeting
when they resolved "that each and
every one in the county 15 years of
age and over should take advantage
of the opportunity that will be of-
fered from July 8 through 24t"
Enmbree Walker, field worker of
the bureau of tuberculosis control
.of the Florida State Board of Health,
Jacksonville, was at the meeting
and ably directed the thoughts' of
everyone toward the great under-
taking 'of building this highly im-
portant program to the full realiza-
tion of a good job "well done."

We Are Sincerely Sorry
The publisher of The Star ex-
presses deep regret over the fact
that in a story printed May 23
the ages of the boys involved,
which ages were obtained from
local officials, were not as pub-
lished, the boys being younger.
It .has always been the policy
of The Star to withhold names of
youth Who become involved with
the law for the ,first time, but in
this instance it was deemed ex-
pedient to give the names, since
the boys apparently were of an
age where they should know what
they were doing. It is regrettable
that The Star was misinformed
in the matter, and wishes to ap-
ologize to the parents of the
boys involved, since it was unin-
tentional. We have never delib-
erately published an article with
the intention of harming any in-
dividual or individuals.

Gives Dan Morgin
Of 47,484 Votes
Almost As Many Ballots Cast
In Runoff As In First
Official figures released Tuesday
from Tallahassee by the state can-
vassing board showed that Dan Mc-
Carty polled a record 384,200 votes
to defeat Brailey Odham for the
governorship of Florida by 47,484,
and the board did then formally de-
clare McCarty the Democratic nom-
inee. That means he will .be the
next governor, since Harry Swan
of Miami, who won the Republican
nomination with 10,217 votes, won't
have a chance in the November gen-
eral election, since Democrats out-
number Republicans 14 to 1 in
Odham, who barely got into the
runoff some 128,000 votes :behind
McCarty, in the first primary, was
credited with 336,716 votes in the
The official returns showed that
McCarty carried 51 counties and
Odham 16. However, the vote was
so close in a dozen counties that it
could almost be called a tie. Fewer
than 100 votes separated the two
in DeSoto, Dixie, Hendry, Liberty,
Highlands, Levy, Osceola, Pinellas,
Sumter, Taylor and Washington

firmed that the Democrats had se-

City Again Port of Call
For Coastwise Shipping
Waterman Company Subsidiary Re-
sumes Schedule Interrupted
By World War II
Port St. Joe last Friday again be-
came a port of call for coastwise
shipping when the 15,000-ton Pan-
Atlantic steamer DeSoto docked to
take on':a caro of paper and paper-
board containers from the St. Joe
Paper Company for shipment to its
plant at Hackensack, N. J.
Arrival of the DeSoto resumed a
schedule that was interrupted al-
most 11 years ago at the outbreak
of World War II, and hereafter the
Pan-Atlantic Company, a subsidiary
of the Waterman Steamship Com-
pany, will make two calls a month
here and expects to handle about
500 tons of paper and aperr pro-
ducts at, each call.
Capt. John D. Are, master of
the freighter, took paper mill offi-
cials and city officials on a tour of
the ship while it was being loaded.
Arrangements for resumption of
shipping service were negotiated by
city and paper mill officials and
representatives of the steamship
company. Jake Belin, manager of
the container.division of the mill,
states that the anticipated 1000 tons
monthly'is only a starter, and that
the tonnage is expected to increase
as the present mill expansion pro-
ject is completed.

If You're Not Registered
You Can't Vote
A lot of citizens of Port St. Joe
apparently don't know or have
forgotten that 'way back in No-
vember of last year a city ordin-
ance became effective calling for
re-registration of all voters in or-
der to get the "deadwood" off the
city registration books.
To date, accqrding.to City Clerk
Ben Dickens, approximately 250
voters have re-registered, which
is about 700 short of the number
of voters in the city.
The registration .books are at
the city hall and will remain open
until ten days prior to the next
city election, Which falls on Sep-
tember 9. Therefore, if you have
not registered, you have until Au-
gust 29 to do so .. 'But don't
put it off, until then register
.today, for if you aren't registered
you can't vote in a city election.
Civic clubs of the city are be-
ing called upon to get people to

for that five-billion i olt "cosmotror" the Atomic

And, from what we hear,'we are soon to have

all the.bombs dropped during World War II.
That could only be the fabulous hydrogen bomb

It's always been somewhat of a mystery to us
why the draft law provides liberal deferment
policies for college men, while dealing less gently
with farmers and working men.
The answer, judging by late news from a
dozen campuses, is that college boys have been
deferred in order that there might be someone
on hand to take care of the vital task of dispos-
ing of discarded ladies' underwear. Surely, there
is a job that must be done in these trying times,
and, apparently, the average college boy of 1952
has just the mentality for the assignment.
We apologize to the draft officials for wonder-
ing if there was a good reason for setting up two
standards' by which to determine who shall have,
the privilege of dying for his country and who
shall not.-West Bend (Wis.) News.

Along with some 1800 or more
other ardent devotees of the sport
made popular by Izaak Walton,
(most of them apparently coming
from Alabama, Geoogia an.l Bay
county), we hied ourselves to the
Dead Lakes for the grand opening,
which fell on Sunday, and returned
with our just share of the spoils-
two limits of 25-one for us and
one for our frau.
On the way to Stardust Lodge
our wife could hardly contain her-
self as she gazed upon the wild
blackberries ripening alongside the
road, and no' ooner had we arrived
at Stardust than she poured herself
into a pair of jeans, and nothing
would do but that we go out and
We plucked 'em, alright about
four gallons of 'em-and when we
got through our arms looked as
though we had gone three fast
rounds with a mowing machine.
. And on top of that we picked
up a flock of red bugs. .. Taking
stock Sunday evening as. we were
preparing to leave the quiet and
solitude of Stardust and return to
the hustle annd bustle of the city,
we gazed sadly at what Saturday
had been a shining example of Am-
erican manhood.... Our arms were
criss-crossed with briar scratches,.
our fingers were loaded with thorns
and cut and jabbed by fins of the
fish we had hauled in, large red
bumps from red bugs adorned our
anatomy from waist to ankle, ve
burned from the bites of yellow
flies and itched from the jabs of
man-eating mosquitoes, our bones
ached from sitting in the boat from
dawn until a couple of hours be-
fore noon but we were happy
aid contented, even though we had
to scratch continuously, for we had
met the enemy and come off with
our share of the spoils.
Yep, you guessed it. ... We'll;
be right back up at Stardust dur-
ing the week-end to do it all over
Maybe rou don't know it, but

The reason? We've got almost 10
horsepower working for each of us
around the clock, 365 days a year.
.. When we compare this with
the average man's output of 1/10
of a horsepower, we see that en-
gineering developments have in-
creased man's output at least 100
times., We noticed that when
we were paddling our boat during
the week-end. Our 1/10 h.p. didn't
move it along very fast, what with
a 207-pound dead weight in the
form of our wife sitting up front
. .but boy, did that boat step
along when we started up our out-
board motor! We noticed the dif-
ference right away and were duly
thankful to the bright boys who
have given us'them there 10 h.p.
We'll end this column with a na-
ture note: The,'other day our wife
laid out a change of clothes for us
on the 'bed, and as we were shuck-
ing off our work clothes, the sock
she had laid out-a brand new one
we'd never seen -before-slid off
the side of the bed onto the floor.
It was a gaily-striped creation, pre-
dominantly yellow, and as we no-
ticed it out of the' corner of our
eye, we thought a coral snake had
sneaked into the house. We
grabbed up our shoe and attempted
to beat it to death before we dis-
covered what it was. Our
wife called up the stairs to know
what all the ruckus was about, and
we sheepishly explained. We
never did like coral snakes, nohow.

Loyal Compton, Pinch Hitting for
Governor, Gives His Impres-
sions of Ancient City
By LOYAL COMPTON
,(Ed-Note: Loyal Compton, pinch
;hitting in Fuller Warren's "Facts
and Figures" column, gives his im-
pressions of the ancient City of St.
Joseph, some of which apparently
are a bit off thle beam but, never-
Florida has many ghost towns,
but the most fabulous of them all
was St. Joseph.
Only 114 years ago St. Joseph
was the metropolis of Florida, with
a population of 6000, two railroads
and a harbor teeming with sailing
ships from ports all over the world.
Today, a cemetery is the sole re-
minder of the bustling city which
was destroyed by yellow fever and
a hurricane in 1844.
I have poked around in the jungle
growth of pine, matted creepers
and palmettoes which cover the old
townsite-just south of Port St.
Joe on the road to Apalachicola-
but I have never been able to find
a single trace of the once-proud
city. Indeed, my knowledge of St.
Joseph would be scant but for three
books. Alexander Key's "The W\rath
,and the Wind," Rubylea Hall's his-
torical novel, "The Great Tide,"
and the Florida Guidebook.
As late as 1923, Mrs. Hall found
tangible evidence of a grand and
gross St. Joseph. When the tide
was'low it was possible to walk out
into St. Joseph's Bay for a half
mile or .more and never.sink into
:sand or silt. The reason?'The whole
:area was covered with masses of
bricks which had served as St.
Joseph's busy wharf and piers.
But these bricks-about S inches
long and 5 inches wide and, stamped
""St. Joseph Brick Works" have
largely disappeared. Some were
hauled away by salvagers to form
foundations for modern Port St.
Joe, two miles to the north. (Ed
Note: Only bricks we have seen
from the ancient city were made in
northern cities or came from Eng-
land and France as ballast in the
siling ships that called at the old
As the bricks were evidence of
wealthy St. Joseph, mounds of glass
found by Mrs. Hall in 1923 were
evidence of the wicked St. Joseph.
These piles of glass-some contain-
ing unbroken bottles, tumbler; and
mugs--marked the sites of saoons
Mrs. Hall discovered fourtee;' such
mounds and, by stepping them off,
she estimated that there was at
least one saloon, sometimes two,
for every block of the main street.
As a matter of historical fact. St.
Joseph was once the richest and
wickedest city in the southeastern
.U. S. Along the Gulf coast, St.
Joseph was known as Sodom and
its sister port of Apalachicola as
Both ports owed their affluence
to the thriving cotton trade, with
as many as 150.000 bales of cotton
shliped annually from St.J.oseph
alone. St. Joseph was the terminus
of two railroads. one from Lake
Wimico (S miles northwest of Ap-
alachicola) and the other from lola
(7 miles north of \ewahitclhka).
(Ed Note: Figures available shot
the largest amount of cotton ever
shipped from St. Joseph in a year
was 32.76S bales in 1840.) o
In its boom days. St. Joseph
boasted brick office buildings and
warehouses. Cotton brokers built
palatial mansions. Town lots sold
for as iluch as $3000. There were
two luxury hotels, the Byron House
and the Pickwick House.
A surprisingly large number of
doctors and lawyers advertised their
services in the St. Joseph Times, a
weekly gazette published each Sat-
urday by Peter \V. Gautier Jr. The
subscription price was $5 a year,
and the advertising rate was $1
In The Times of February 23,
1839, a brokerage and ship chand-
lery concern offered a number of
seagoing vessels for sale, including
a seven-ton sloop and a man-of-war
mounting 20 guns. In 'the same is-
sue Editor Gautier boosted his city
thusly: "The depth and security of
harbor, its health, beauty of loca-
tion and direct means of communi-
cation with the interior point it out
as the importing emporium for
West Florida .. (Ed Note: In
June of 1S3S a highway was com-
pleted from Georgia through Mari-
anna and St. Joseph to Apalachi-
Only two years later came the
yellow fever epidemic, followed by
the hurricane and high tide which
flattened St. Joseph with the de-
structive power of a giant bull-
dozer. (Ed Note: Most of the build-
ings had been torn down and car-
ried by boat to Apalachicola at the
end of 1843. prior to the hurricane.)
Every time I pass the old town-
site I am reminded that the work
of man's hands is transitory: only
the works of his mind endure.

istration was known-as "The Era!

For Well Groomed Garden
Many Plants Need Staking
Properly staked plants insure an
orderly garden. Lack of proper
staking means that you are reason-
ably sure to have some wrecked
and messy beds later in the sea-
son. A heavy rain or wind storm
is likely to knock over tall and
heavy foliage plants which natu-
rally have stems not sufficiently,
sturdy to stand up under such cir-
Delphiniums are the first plants
in the garden to show the need for
staking. The heavy spikes of bloom
on these stately perennials make
them'singularly susceptible to de-
structiqn by winds or heavy rains.
Stake them before the buds start
to open and save the beauty of the
Gladiolus with heavy spikes of
bloom are likely to need stakes.
Lilies and iris of the taller types
also need this assistance. Tall Af-
rican and French marigolds are
tipped over by wind or rain and
become a jungle. Staking would
have saved them.
The first requisite of good staking
is that the stakes should be strong
and capable of holding up the plant,
but 'as unobtrusive as possible.
Green painted stakes are least con-
spicuious. The cheapest and most
efficient stakes are the bamboo
canes "sold in varying )engths by
dealers. They may be bought al-
ready painted or in their natural col-
or and, you can paint them your-
self. They are strong and durable.
,Heavy. wire. stakes are least ob-
trusive ,f all. especially when paint-
ed green., Plants .can be tied ~to
them /easily and held 'upright '.so
that the tying cannot be distin-
guished until viewed at close range.,
Set the stakes and tie 'the plants
before they come into bloom. A
good job of staking that willnot
make the plant look stiff -andi ob-
viously tied up cannot be done

after it has come into bloom. For
plants,of lighter growth that are
apt to sprawl and .be of untidy hab-
it, twiggy branches caiefilly ap-
plied make the best supports. The
tall' ,snapdragons peed' staking. II
pinched"lack and tied the tall types
throw out branches. The long ter-
minal :spike is sacrificed but a
much greater .quantity of bloom'
and finer garden display is ob-
tained. Get in a supply of stakes
and give the plants known to need
stakig .attention early in their ca-
reer. The sooner staking is attend-
.ed to, the less obtrusive will it be
when the plant reaches the matur-
ity. of its 'bloom.
The Homeward Trip
Some time before daylight Fri-
day morning the' newly married
folks started for home, followed
soon after by our pair of grays,
without our knowledge or consent.
They took it into their heads .to add
their part of the fun, and it was
not until midday that Mr. Mahon
had recovered them and was ready'
to start on our return.
On our way back we stopped at
Mr. George Patton's residence at
the Eleven Mile Place. Ye scribe
didn't enjoy the return trip very
much because, having indulged too
freely the previous day in branch
water, his anatomy got into active
commotion from cholera morbus, or
something like that, and staid so
'On our entrance into town, ow-
ing .to the blinding effect of the
electric light in. front of us, we
rudely interrupted the slumbers of
a small and innocent looking bo-
vine that was quietly reposing in
the middle of the street, and, after
we had rolled him or her around
and over a few times, he, or she,
arose and shook the dust off him-
self and decided, doubtless more
in sorrow than in anger, that a
wedding party is a tough proposi-
tion to tackle at midnight.
And now, Mr. Editor, having made
a short story as long as your pa-
tience will permit, we conclude by
saying, "All's well that ends well."
