Key West Ravaged By Appalling Storm
Decidedly the severest, most prolonged and destructive storm in the
history of the city of Key West is pa st, and, it is hoped, is forever gone.
Every home in the city was damaged, from the extent of a few
dollars on up into thousands. Industries suffered severely. Business
houses were all injured in one way and another and many of the pro-
prietors sustained enormous losses. The tobacco factories were heaviest
losers. The damage in the amber leaf alone representing in the neighbor-
hood of a million dollars. Shipping interests are paralyzed.
The cigar factoris- of tho MPty may not resume operation under two to
four weeks. The strike of the cigar makers was settled, and the men were
ready to return to work, but as a result of the storm they will remain idle
for a few more weeks, and be deprived of the $65,000 weekly pay roll.
Practically all the pretty trees, for which Key West is justly famous,
were uprooted or torn to shreds by the winds.
Through the alertness of Mayor Allan B. Clear and his board of city
councilmen, the city is being cleared up at a marvelously rapid rate.
The army and navy motor trucks have joined in the service of the city and
are helping the other trucks and vehicles remove the branches of fallen
trees and other debris that lined the streets at the end of the storm.
The Key West Electric Company performed marvelous work and power
mad lights are available two or three days ahead of the time calculated
upon. The Key West Gaf' Company doubled their efforts to restore serv-
lee and soon had the supply of gas sufficient for all purposes. Street car
service was resumed about 10 o'clock today and regular schedule is be.
The telephone company rendered valuable service up until the storm
put the system clear out of commission. The silvery voice of the girls at
the switchboard answered the calls while the lightning flashed, the winds
Decidedly the heaviest losers by
the storm in Key West are the
cigar factories. Those sustaining
the greatest loss were the Havana-
American Company and the Sam I.

building is wrecked to the extent
that a new structure may have to be
erected before operation of the
factory cans be resumed. It is hard
to place an estimate on the total
loss at the present time, but it will
run' into hundreds of thousands of
dollars. Great, sections of the Tear

loses were quite heavy, but were

Damage at the Consumers Ice
Company plant will be in the neigh-
borhood of $10,000.
Condition of things at the Key
West Box Factory are deplorable.
Daring the strike of the cigar-
makers, manufactured goods had
piled up there, as there was no one
at the factories to receive them had
delivery been offered.' All the
boxes already manufactured, and
the plant is full of them, were' wet
and are now warped so that they
are simply ruined. The labels and

doubt saved the city much in many w ays,
The ice supply was cut off by the plant becoming disabled, but before
the storm was over men were at work making repairs, and this afternoon
ice was available in any quantity at the plant.
Key West was at the mercy of the elements for seventeen long hours.
The Citizen announced the approach of the storm Monday afternoon. It
was expected to reach here some time during Monday night; but on ac-
count of its traveling very slowly it did not strike the city in full force
until late Tuesday afternoon. At 4:830 o'clock Tuesday afternoon the storm
center came over the southern portion of the Florida Keys, Key West
falling directly in its course. The hurricane approached at a velocity of
76 miles an hour, gradually increasing in intensity until the maximum
of 120 miles was reached between 12 and 1 o'clock Tuesday night.
The greater part of the damage was done between 12 and 3 o'tiock a. m.
It is conceded by the weather bureau and oldest citizens as being the
most disastrous storm that ever visited the city.
Miraculously small is the casualty list at Key West. Only two deaths
are authentically reported. Capt. Pritchard, of Key West, who was on the
dredge Grampus when she went down, lest his life by not being,, able to
swim. A young sailor, whose name was gives as C. P. L. Hansen, jump.
ed overboard from a subehaser. His body was washed out to sea and has
not been recovered.
Since all the homes were damaged more or less, it is found impos-
sible to name all of them in the list below, and some that were badly In.
jured may possibly be omitted, but The Citizen has made an earnest ef-.
fort to have the list as complete ard accurate as was possible under the

THE ABUSED UNIFORM
As the good men and true doff
their soldier uniforms and don their
"cits," the bad men and false steal
or buy the uniforms and use them
as camouflage for beggary and
fakes of all kinds.
There have been many warnings
to the public not to encourage men
in uniform who try to sell or beg at
the door. There is provision in al-
most every community for needy
soldiers, and no soldier ,ho wants a
job need go long without one. In
spite of the publicity given to these
facts, so prevalent has the abuse of
the uniform become that Secretary
Baker is advising with government
officials as to more drastic methods
The public, as it appreciates what
its honest soldiers have done, should
give every aid in stamping out this
dishonest traffic, No purchase
should be made of any man in uni-

THE HORRIFIC AIRPLANE
A Kansas aviator ha t'eel fined
$25 and costs for "distr i;lr the
peace." The offence con,ist in
flying an airplane within te, f et
of the farmhouse roof, to the terrorr
4nd dismay of the farmer, his family
and the livestock.
It will not do to pronounce ,s.
off-hand, an unrighteous juignw,'
or to subject the farmer tuo sc,
and abuse4 It may readily b |
imagined that, to a family annc.
customer to having airplanes cavort-
ing around, the spectacle of a big
machine swooping toward the roof
is a trifle disconcerting. An air-
plane driven by a 400-horsepower
engine is not exactly a swallow. At
the least, it may knock off a chim-
ney. It may conceivably dive
through the roof of the house or
barn. And even if nothing suffers
harm except the plane and its oc-
cupants, nobody wants aviators,
propeller blades, batteries, wrench-
es, fuselages, etc., tumbling oil over
But there is the aviator's side of
it, too. It is easy to imagine, if
this decision stands, what flyers are
going to be up against in the fu-
ture. What height will be consider-
ed safe and proper? And will a fly-
er be arrested and fined whenever,
by design or accident, he drops be-
low that level? Will the aviators
all be driven, in self-defense, to
keep above the clouds, and then be
in peril of arrest by every village
constable, like speeding automobilists,
when they venture down to see
whore they are?
SHOES FROM FIRST TO LAST
Of course a good last is the first
essential in a good shoe, but the
next essential is how to make good
shoes last. Specialists from the
Federal Bureau of Chemistry give
this Information on the last ques-
"Grease or o6l should 'be applied
to the shoes whenever the leather
begins to get hard or d-y. All dust
should first be wiped or washed off.
For dress shoes or shoes that are to
be polished use castor oil, applying
it at night. (Even shoes, it seems,
should take their castor oil at bed-
time.) In the morning polish the
shoes. The oil will darken tan
leather, but so will any ordinary
polish, and perhaps the latter will
not be so good for the leather. Avoid
getting any oil on rubber on com-
position heels or soles. It destroys
For heavy work shoes, neatsfoot
oil, fish oil, tallow, petrolatum or
vaseline may be used. If heavier
water-proofing is wanted than these
oils afford, a dressing excellent for
the purpose if
One-half pound of neutral wool
grease (get from drug store.)
One-fourth pound of (heavy)
dark petrolatum (get from drug
One-oqarter pound of (light) yel-
low paraffin wax, or nine-tenths of
a pound of petrolatum.
One-tenth of a pound of beeswax.
Another good water-proofing
dressing cab be made by adding beef
tallow to any of the oils or greases
already mentioned. Harness may be
preserved and kept in good condi-
tion for a long time if cleaned and
oiled according to the instructions
for oiling shoes.
In these days some of these home-
ly old remedies which a frivolous
world had relegated t6 the attic are
worth dragging out and looking over.
Those old-fashioned people who used
to takt care of thellr tilnglls inay iiDlVe
had some sense, after all.

This is not only one of the best and
most efficient medicines for coughs.,
colds, croup and whooping cough, but
is also pleasant to take, which is im-
portant when a medicine must be
given to young children. Chamber-
slain's Cough Remedy has been in use
for many years and has met with
much favor wherever its good quali-
ties have became known. Many
mothers have given it their unquall-
Vied endorsement. Wm. Scruby, Chil-
licothe, Mo., writes, "I have raised
three children, have always used
Cha..-berlain's Cough Remedy and
found it to be the best for coughs,
colds and croup. It is pleasant to
take. Both adults and children like
it. My wife and I have always felt
safe from croup with it in the house."

PROFICIENCY IS AIM
OF FEDERAL BOARD IN
WASHINGTON, Sept. 12.--The
familiar cry of "equal pay for equal
work" expresses the ideal towards
which the Federal Board for Voca.
tional Education is strive to lead
the disabled men taking training. To
be just a little more competent than
the ordinary man is the best way for
the disabled man to be sure of holding
down his job, when competition grows
severe. In order to secure this pro.
ficiency the training given by the
board to men handicapped by war In-
juries is very thorough, whether it
be given in the school or in the trade.
When placement-training is selected
as the appropriate method, the nature
and length of the course is deter.
mined upon in the light of the man's
needs and capabilities. When a trade
contains several separate and distinct
operations the aim of training being
to fit the man as an efficient general
workman, his course is arranged In
such a way that as soon as he masters
one operation he may be transferred
to another. The placement officer of
the federal board supervises his
course, insisting upon the idea that he
must be considered a learner rather
than a producer. In every case the
course, whether given in school or
shop must be adapted to the interests
and requirements of the disabled man.
Instruction must be definitely planned
for him, and supervised by agents of

Th. following is taken from the
account of the storm which appeared
in The Citizen on the following day:
"The worst disaster that has ever
befallen this city occurred Monday
morning, when the hurricane swept
over the island, reaching the height
of its fury at 11:830. A steady velo-
city of 76 miles an hour was reached
and in some of the gusts it no doubt
reached over 100 mile.,
"Warnings had been issued by the
Weather Bureau and the time of the
climax of the storm was predicted al-
most exactly by Observer Doherty,
who stated that it would reach its
worst about noon.
"A strong wind, accompanied by
rain, iet in during Sunday night and
increased Monday morning until
about '!:30, when it assumed the na-
ture o' a hurricane. For over three
h srtgcity was s'wpt with un-
ceasing wind and rain. I Building after
building collapsed before the storm
and the air was full of flying debris.
That more lives were not lost seems
miraculous. Only three lives were
lost in the city.
"The shipping interests were great
sufferers from the storm. Nearly
every dock in the city was greatly
damaged, several being almost wholly
"Crafts of every kind are jammed
together or sunk along the water
front. Many boats broke from their
moorings and went crashing through
other boats and docks."
Several of the largest cigar fac-

electric and telephone plants were
put out of commission and business
was paralyzed for the time being.
Great damage was also done to the

DAMAGE IN COLORED SECTION
The havoc wrought in the south-
western portion of the city, in-
habitated by the colored people, was
as complete as in the other parts of
the city, but owing to the flimsy
character of most of the structures
damaged the monetary loss is not
great. Many persons, however, lost
all they had ana considering their In-
dividual circumstances the loss to
them is as keen as to the more
opulent. The heaviest losses sus-
tained in this section were along the
religious and fraternal bodies.
The A. M. E. Zion church of which
Rev. A. L. Higgs is pastor, situated
on Whitehead street near Angela, is
badly wrecked and will no doubt have
to be taken down. This edifice suf-
fered greatly in the last two storms
:and had just been put into shape
again. It is supposed its previous
weakened condition made it ap easy
prey to the elements.
Newman church hall had the front
part of it carried away, but the new
church building was not damaged.
The most complete wreck in this
section is the Masonic hall on Thomas
street opposite the County Court
House, which is nothing but a pile of
debris, the building having succumbed
to the first force of the storm. It
had only recently "been placed in n
good condition by the Masonic lodges,
and further improvements were in
contemplation, so the loss to them is
Further up Thomas street the Odd
Fellows Hall, a large two story
structure erected in 1882, had the
first s.ory removed from under it as
completely as could be done by any
contractor, and the floor of the
second story rests on the founda-
tion, the roof and all being Intact. It
is fortunate that this building fell in
this position; had it toppled over on
either side it would have demolished
the smaller buildings surrounding it.
On everyside in this locality there
is a tangle of fences and the streets
are encumbered with wreckage. Fur-
ther out towards the South Beach, the
discomforts of the people were added
to by the water rushing up Thomas,
Emma and Whitehead as far as Vir-
ginia street, many houses wre w sh-
ed from their foundation; and traffic
could only be had by mnas et boats

MEXICAN MINING LAW
OF 1884 IS DECLARED
MEXICO ('ITY, Aug. 31.-(Cor-
resapondle(e of The A ssoiated
Press)-The mining law of 1864 is
unconistituti 4nal and illegally ex-
cepts hydrocarbonates in the soil
and subsoil from the natie-nal do-
main, according to a letter from
Jose Vazquez Schiaffino, chief of
the petroleum section of the De-
,,artLient of Industry and Com-
merce, in Ei Umhitisal. Protest by
foreign oil interests against alleged
confiscatory oil decrees is based on
rights acquired under this law.
In framing the oil law initiative,
sent by President Carranza to con-
gress last November for developing
Article 27 of the Constitution, Mr.
Schiaffino said, his department was
impelled by the highest motives and
sought to protect vested interests
and investments. He asserted that
the reading of the transitory provi-
sions of this initiative would show
that, in regard to vested interests
created by the protection of former
laws, only a simple tax was im-
With regard to the mining law of
1884, his statement said: "This de-
partment hos not interpreted cap-
riciously in a thousand different
ways Article 27; but in only one
way, the revindication of the domin-
ion of the nation over the hydro-
carbonates of the soil and subsoil
and its incorporation into the min-
ing regime which always has been
in force in Mexico since the time of
the Spanish domination, and from
which it was illegally excepted by
an unconstitutional law. (The min-
ing law of 1884.)"

'Y WEST CITIZEN
SINCE THE STORM
The Key West Citizen shared
with the other enterprises in
their losses and frustration of
business routine. The building
was practically unroofed and the
plant flooded, putting the two
linotype machines out of commins-
sion and doing much damage to
office furniture. In the absence
of power and gas it was Impos-
sible to publish the paper, and
this is the first issue of The
Citizen since the 'storm came.
The power is only on at nights
so far, so it was necessary to get
the paper out "between suns."
It is really the Friday paper, but
'is being delivered to sulscribers
this (Saturday) morning. The
regular edition of The Citizen
will appear this (Saturday)
afternoon, if circumstances per-

all departments of the industry are
ready to return to work.
The pickers, which represent the

the offer of the Manufacturers' As-

Ford cars are important servants every-
where. They help the family enjoy life,
bring the pleasures and advantages of the
town within reach of the farmer and give
practical service every day in country and
town. They require a minimum of atten-
tion; any one can run the Ford and care for
it, but it is better to have repairs and re-
placements taken care of by those who are
familiar with the work and have the tools,
the genuine materials, and skilled men to
do the work promptly. We pledge Ford
owners the reliable Ford service with real
Ford parts and standard Ford prices.,
