expenditures for the month


of March.


1909. I have completed the fill of the
causeway on 'the west side of Mar-
shall Swamp, and have made same
hard with the best material that I
could find over there to build a hard
road with. I have made hard the
causeway on the east side of the
swamp at the river: also widened
roa( bed and built hard road across
the pond-like place this side of the
swamp, about a quarter of a mile out.
My expenditures for the last month

speaking were both distinctive.
The response was made by Mr. M.
F. Hetherington of Lakeland, presi-
dent of the Florida State Press Asso-

nounced that he was no speaker, and
said that editors as a rule are men of
thought and action, not of speech.
He had prepared a very excellent lit-
tle talk that belied his first assertion.
He said that when he was a boy he
made up his mind to see three things
when he grew up-the Mississippi
river, a mountain and St. Augustine.
He told of the realization of the first
two, and his disappointment that they
were not nearly as grand as he had
pictured them. Then he 'told of
the last. and said how much be-

tine board of trade and Business
Men's League tendered the members
of the Folrida Press Association a
very delightful courtesy in the guise
of an elegant banquet in the lovely
dining room of the Alcazar hotel. Be-
sides the members ot the press, their
families and friends, the mayor of
the city, chairman of the board of
trade, chairman of the Business
Men's League and other prominent of-
ficials were present. At one end of
the long banquet table Mayor Mas-
ters presided, and at the other Mr.
Geo. S. Meserve. To the right of
Mayor Masters sat the genial toast-
master of the occasion, Hon. A. M.
Taylor, and 'to the left, Mr. Harry L.
Brown, editor of the Record and the
association's splendid host at this an-
nual session. After a few bright re-
marks and words of welcome, Mayor
Masters, Chairman Taylor, Mr. Me-
serve and others, a tempting menu
was served and the toasts began.
Mr. Taylor was presented as toast-
master, and an ideal one he made.
Nothing could express it so well as
saying his witticisms were "great."
He could not be excelled in this par-
ticular at least. The bouquets
thrown about by the graceful mayor,
the genial toast-master and others,
mixed with plenty of good repartee
caught the enthusiasm of the crowd
and brought down roars of laughter
and applause at the various jokes got-
ten off on members of the press and
others present. The response to
toasts in every instance was in the
happiest of veins and the most felici-
tous expressions.
The "pen-wielders throuoghly en-
joyed every moment of 'the occasion
and it is safe to say that nothing
could equal this delightfully good-na-
tured affair in the general prevalence
of this trait, the speeches made, the
witticisms and bright repartee indulg-
ed in and the jokes cracked. Among
those called upon and responding,
each in his individual manner, was
Willis B. Powell. "The Millionaire
Editor in Captivity," who gave the se-
crets as to his success, and the meth-
ods used in money-making; the presi-
(lent of the next state senate, Editor
Humphries of the Bradentown Her-
ald, who explained what he expected
to do with the seat of honor when he
got it; C. L. Bittinger of Ocala told
of his political "light-extinguishing"
tricks in primary elections, and Frank
Harris of the same town, "Nestor of
the State Press," responded delight-
fully to a toast as the "Methusaleh"
of this organization, while W. Living-
ston Lamed, the "boy prodigy" and
canary bird singer of the Record of-
fice, Success Magazine, and other pe-
riodicals, responded as the youngest
editor present.
T. J. Appleyard, as the new state
printer and secretary of the associa-
tion, told of his triumphs in the politi-
cal arena of Florida, and wouni up
by saying that he was not quite out
of the "running business."
Mr. O. B. Smith of St. Augustine re-
sponded very gracefully to 'the toast
of an "outwardly old but inwardly
young man." and the evening was
concluded by the entire throng sing-
ing "Auld Lang Syne."-Special State
Press Edition, St. Augustine Record.

Their Secretaries


SFrom the Special State Press Edi-
tion of the St. Augustine Record.)
Letters announcing this annual
meeting of the Florida State Press
Association and the celebration in St.
Augustine at the same time were sent
to President Taft. ex-President Roose-
velt. Hon. Henry M. Flagler and Gov.
Albert W. Gilchrist. The responses 'to
these letters are printed herewith:
From Governor Gilchrist
State of Florida.
Executive Chamber. Tallahassee.
March 29. E199.
Hon. Frank Harris, State-Press Asso-
ciation. St. Augustine, Fla.:
My Dear Sir-I have been so busy
reading various reports of the heads
of the departments. and preparing my
message for the legislature until I
have not had the time to answer your
highly appreciated invitation to write
a communication commemorating the
anniversary of the founding of St.
Augustine by Ponce de Leon. This

tural interests in the United States
and of the world at large. We are
furnishing millions of pounds of fish
annually to the citizens of the United
States. Fish is a great brain restor-
er. We are furnishing the fountain
of youth for the brain of the United
States.
Many people, worn out in health,
come to Florida to receive th.e bene-
fits of our climatic conditions. We
have fully 75 per cent. of the climate
of the world. The Florida state cen-
sus for the year 1905 shows that the
death rate is 6.6 per 100U people. The
death rate for the registration area of
the U'nited States, embracing New
England states, New York, New Jer-
sey, Delaware and the District of Co-
lumbia, is 17.8 per 1000. We are
therefore furnishing the fountain of
youth as to the health of the United
States.
We are furnishing one-half of the
turpentine of the United States. This
turpentine is the principal ingredient
of paint, preserving and restoring
the buildings of the United States.
In considering this subject I am re-
minded of one of Aesop's Fables. It
is related that an old man. seeing that
he was about to die called his chil-
dren around him, telling them that
there was a fortune buried in the vine-
yard; to look for it, and find it. The
result was an immense yield of
grapes. They had a fortune, but ,lid
not know it. We have the Fountain
of Youth. but it is not generally
known. With best wishes,
Cordially yours,
ALBERT W. GILCHRIST.
Governor.

From Mr. Flagler
Palm Beach, Fla.. March 22. 1909.
Hon. Frank Harris. Ocala, Fla.:
My Dear Mr. Harris-I am in re-
ceipt of your favor of the 20th inst..
advising that the representatives of
the Florida State Press Association
will be present at the coming Poncer
de Leon celebration in St. Augustine.
It is needless for me to assure you
that in common with oth,-r citizens of
St. Augustine. not only your associa-
tion, but all visitors from other sec-
tions to the Ancient City, will receive
a most hearty welcome, and I know
I voice the sentiment of the people in
adding our hope that the celebration
will prove most entertaining and en
joyab!e to a!l t 'ose I)resnt.
With all good wishes, believe me,
Yours very truly.
H. M. FLAGLER.

From the President
The White House,
Washington, March 22. l19o",.
Mr. Frank Harris, Editor Ocala Ba:i-
ner, Ocala, Fla.:
My Dear Sir-Your letter of March
20th has been received. The presi-
dent has so many requests for mes-
sages such as you desire that he has
been reluctantly obliged to make it
a rule to decline all requests of tnis
nature. He has found by actual ex-
perience that inasmuch as it is im-
possible 'to send these messages in all
cases, it causes dissatisfaction if he
attempts to discriminate by comply-
ing in one case and not in others.
Regretting, therefore, that it is not
feasible to meet your wishes, I am.
Very truly yours,
FRED W. CARPENTER,
Secretary to the President.

From Mr. Roosevelt
The Outlook, 287, 4th Avenue,
Office of Theodore Roosevelt.
New York, March 27. 1909.
Mr. Frank Harris, Ocala, Fla.:
My Dear Sir-Mr. Roosevelt was so
overwhelmed with work just before
departing that it proved a physical
impossibility for him to comply with
the hundreds of requests which came
to him. He would have been pleased
if he could have complied with them
all. Very truly yours,
FRANK HARPER, Sec.

Draft was a colored preacher, and

Martin on the Martin and Oldtown
road has already been mentioned in
these columns.
Isabella Draft, his widow, and Al-
bert Smith were held by the jury ito
await the action of the grand jury,

bella Draft, it seems, were "soul af-
finities," and Draft was very much in
their way, and it was agreed between
them that it were best for all con-
cerned that he should be "gathered

es of this sort, they were clumsy
about it, failed to cover up their

clear against them.

MacWilliams objected, offering mo-
tion that matter be deferred.
Representative Rollerson of Su-
wannee offered house resolution No.
1, which was adopted as follows:
"Be it resolved, That the recording
clerk, in addition to his duties at
present, be instructed to act in the
capacity of assistant to the chief
clerk."
The introduction of this resolution
was superinduced by a motion by
Representative Light of Marion to
abolish the office of recording clerk.
Upon motion of Representative Car-
ter the chair appointed Representa-
tives Carter, Neally and Stringer as
committee to disseminate governor's
message and report to the speaker.
After receiving the message of the
governor the house adjourned until 12
o'clock Wednesday.
W. Hunt Harris of Key West called
the chair to order and ordered the
roll of hold-over senators.
Senator Beard of Pensacola chal-
lenged the eligibility of L. C. Massey
of Orlando. The chair asked Mr.
Massey to take his seat in order that
the matter might be considered by the
whole senate.
Prayer was delivered by the chap-
lain.
Don C. McMullen moved to proceed
with the election of officers and at-
taches. Mr. McMullen, seconded by
Mr. Dayton of Dade City, nominated
Mr. Hudson for president.
Retiring President Harris presented
the gavel of office to the new presi-
dent with appropriate words, and in
receiving it Mr. Hudson paid a high
tribute to the administration of the
retiring president He pledged every
endeavor to the proper filling of the
office. He wished for harmony be-
tween both the members of each
house, and also between the two
houses.
The other officers and attaches were
then placed in nomination and elected
in accordance with the action of the


caucus on Monday night.
Senator Flournoy of DeFuniak
Springs moved that Mr. Massey be
sworn in and Mr. Beard said Mr. Mas-
sey holds the position of attorney to
the state railroad commission. He
expressed the hope, however, that the
legislature might differ with him, as
he recognized ability in Mr Massey.
He. however, considered it his duty to
the state to make known his objec-
tion.
Senator Harris irged that the mat-
ter be referred to the committee on
privileges and elections. Senator
Beard amended to refer to a special
committee of three.
Mr. McMullen suggested that Mr.
Massey be sworn, as he had a prima
face case that he was duly elected
and that the case be looked into when
the regular committees are chosen.
Upon motion of Senator Harris the
matter was helo over until the senate
could complete its organization by
swearing in the attaches.
A committee was appointed to wait
on the house and one to notify the
governor that the senate was in ses-
sion.
A recess of five minutes was taken.
pending the return of the committees.
The governor's message was receiv-
ed from Talbot Whitfield, his secre-
tary.
Senator McMullen held that Sena-
tor Beard's contention was untenable
as Mr. Massey was only an attorney
to an administrative board, and that
under such a contention an attorney
to a board of county commissioners
could not hold a seat in the senate.
Senator Beard suggested a commit-
qee of five, but the motion was lost.
A motion that Mr. Massey be sworn
in. instead of going to a committee
for investigation, was carried. Sena-
tor Harris of Key West administer-
ed the oath.
A resolution by Senator Beard that
the chairman appoint a committee of
three on rules was adopted.
Adjournment was then taken.
The prohibitionists now in Talla-
hassee, claim more than half of the
house and half of the senate, but
whether or not they can enlist enough
strength to pass resolutions providing
for a constitutional amendment is an-
other Question.

Several weeks ago it was decided
tlh' the best way to break up the
snag- ar to import a detective. A

pewat their nights gambling and
drtkikag. He proceeded to make com-

CONVICT LEASE SYSTEM ENDS
IN GEORGIA

This is a memorable day in the lives
of two thousand convlets, and an epoch
in the history of the state of Georgia,
for today a new era opens up in the
penal system of the state.
Prom the various camps scattered
throughout the state-from the brick
yards and coal mines and turpentine
farms-these thousands of convicts
come forth under a new and more hu-
mane system, most of them to be
placed permanently at work improv-
ing the highways of Georgia.
There are those who have spent
many years of their life-

"Down in a coal mine, underneath
the ground,
Digging dusty diamonds all the season
'round."

They have had but few glimpses of
the cheerful light of day, and it is a
strange, new world which opened up
before them this morning when they
left the dim scenes of years of labor
and came out into the April sunshine.
The inhuman treatment of 'the Ceor-
gia convict has been terminated for-
ever and the people themselves feel
greater self-respect for having brought
about this change in accordance with
the dictates of civilization.
We have washed our hands of a
system which was a reproach, and
at the same time we have substituted
for it a system which means the cre-
ation of a network of highways ex-
tending throughout the state.

The counties which have responded
to the opportunity to utilize the con-
vic's are entitled to great credit.
Without their co-operation it would
have been impossible to carry out the
spirit of the law. One hundred and
five of these counties have expressed
their willingness to 'take their quota
of convicts and already they are be-
ginning to perfect their plans for us-
ing them on the public roads.
A few years hence and we will be
able to appreciate even more ade-
quately the full meaning of the new
era which opens up today. As thhe
counties co-operate in their work and
the road authorities harmonize and
unify their plans*we will be able to
grasp the full meaning of the new sys-
tem. Tne better systems of roads
will give an enhanced value to real
estate, which will add greatly to 'the
revenue to the state. The country
home and the remote farm will be
made more accessible to the centers
of population. The physical and mor-
al development of 'the convicts them-
selves will show a great improvement
and we will wonder how the old sys-
tem was tolerated so long.-Atlanta
Journal.

THE SOUTH 18 GOING DRY

Lay the jest about the Julep in the
camphor balls at last.
For the miracle has happened, and the
olden days are past!
That which made Milwaukee thirsty
does not foam in Tennessee,
And the lid in old Mississippi is as
tight-locked as can be;
And the comic paper Colonel and his
cronies well may sigh,
For the mint is waving gaily, and the
south is going dry!

By the still-side on the hill-side in
Kentucky all is still,
And the only damp refreshment must
be dipped up from the rill.
Nawtb Ca'lina's stately ruler gives
his soda glass a shove,
And discusses local option with the
So'th Ca'lina guv.
It is useless at the fountain to be
winkful of the eye,
For the cock-tail glas is dusty, and
*the south is going dry!

It is "water, water, everywhere, nor
any drop to drink!"
We no longer hear the music of the
mellow crystal clink;
When the Colonel, and the Major, and
the Gen'ral and the Jedge;
Meet to have a little nip, and to give
their appetites an edge;
For the egg-nog now is nogless, and
the rye has gone awry,
And the punch bowl holds carnations,
for the south is going dry!

All the night-caps now have tassels,
and are worn upon the head!
Not the night-caps that were taken
when nobody went to bed;
And the breeze above the blue-grass
is as solemn as is death,
For it hears no pungent clove-tang on
it sodorific breath;
And each man can walk the chalk-
line when the stars are in the
sky,
For the fizz-glass now is fizzless, and
the south is going dry!

Lay th? jest about the julep neathh
the chestnut tree at last,
For there's but one kind of moonshine
and the olden days are past!
The water-wagon rumbles through
the southland on its 'trip,
And it helps no one to drop off to
pick up the driver's whip;
F'or the mint beds now are pastures,
and the corkscrew hangeth
high;
All is still along the hill-side, and the
south is going dry!
Wrong is like the Australian's
boomerang. It makes its circuit, only
to fall at the feet of him who fung
it away.

Port Inglis and vicinity did not es-
cape unscathed from the severe gale
that was general on the west ocast
on Wednesday night of last week.
While the tug Bigelow, Captain Jas.
Berry commanding, weathered the
gale and arrived in port safely, the
British steamship Selma. Captain
North commanding, was not so fortu-
nate. She reached the anchorage
and made fast to her allotted buoy.
During the hegiht of the storm she
raggedd the anchor, and the chains
parting she was driven ashore on
Mangrove flats, where her coal and
ballast had 'to be lightened before she
could be floated from the shallow wa-
ter. The draft of the ship is twelve
feet. The Selma was pulled off her
moorings in the evening of the day
she went aground, but the Zorada,
Capt. A. F. Dewey, is still ashore on

LOCALS FROM LOS KISS

Special Cor. Ocala Banner:
Gee! Cupid (the fat little rascal) is
general of a whole army in Los Kiss,
and he i- out-witting us so cunningly
that on Tuesday he tramped out right
under our guns, and, by jove! he had
with him two ext-a hearts, and they
were beating as one.
Thusly it goes: It was one of those
love episodes in which the old folks,
having long forgotten of their court-
ing days, objected. They said it was
because they were too young. 'Twas
an elopement, and the contracting
parties were Miss Marie Valentine,
president of the Just Us Girls Club,
and Capt. Theopolis Heller of the
steamer Ethelton.
Miss Margie Katherine wrote of
the event in full in her morning Los
Kissan, (Thursday) and from her say-
ing it appears that upid had an army
of helpers in the young folks. Listen:
No Court 1 his Morning
The Just Us Girls Club's slate, hang-
ing in front of the City Exchange,
gave out the news of the above head-
ing Wednesday morning, and under
this Pete Button, the Los Kissan's
imp, scrawled, "Cupid is out." And,
you bet, he sure was out, too, and the
parents of the bride were as mad as
sixty.
Yesterday evening the Lenore ar-
rived home from Washington, D. C.,
and the whole city went down to
The Bends to watch her come in, and
when she was safely docked Lady and
Mr. Aulley were showered with geret-
ings from all sides, and the trim lit-
tle launch was petted lovingly. It
was a merry bunch that greeted the
couple, an( among the merriest and
happiest were a juvenile couple of
this city. They were Pete Button
and Miss Delia Herrington, the
youngest member of the J. U. G.
Club, being only thirteen years old.
Immediately after the Lenore land-
ed this young couple went over her
rails and handed down the "Home,
Sweet Home" signals. and hoisted
signal flags, which roead: "Next!" Sev-
eral of the Los Kissans noticed the
peculiar signal before leaving for up-
town, but no one. as far as we can
learn, said anything J;bout it, except,
little Miss Luise Valentine, the
bride's si- r, ;and a close chum to
Miss Il rrington. This little miss,
while or thlie way home from The'
lends, whispered the news of the
signal hoisted to her sister, and Mr.
Heller overheard it, as 'the little girl
whispered it rather loud.
It was a put-up job by Pete and
his two girl playmates to out-wit the
old folks, and make two hearts glo-
riously nappy. And so a thought
came down suddenly, and little Dan
Cupid danced with glee.
We all knew that Miss Valentine
and Mr. Heller were engaged. Both
Miss Valentine and Mr. Heller are
very rich, so they planned quickly to
elope via the graceful Lenore.
In passing the Court Pharmacy, on
the corner of Figueroa avenue, Miss
Valentine noticed inside her club's
Santa Singerland member, Miss Vir-
ginia Mosier. "Oh! she said to Mr.
Heller, there it Virginia. Come, let
us go in and enjoy a little chat and
a Los Kiss flip."
And while enjoying the "flip" the
plans to elope were formed-Miss Mo-
,!er planning with them.
The Just Us Girls Club. as we all
know ,is called together on special
occasions by the fire bell. "Big
Hamp." A practice fire alarm is turn-
ed in and the big bell strikes four.

through which the country has been
passing. For the first time in our
history the south has been well pro-

Its financial institutions have dem-
onstrated their capacity to endure a
strain. It is no small credit to the
southern banking interests to have
passed thus far through a dull period
with so few failures and so little dis-
trust on the part of the public.
It has begun to recover from some
of the mistakes of extreme legislation
relating to railroads. The interven-

The elevator creaked under the
great load, but it descended without
an acicoent.
As tue elevator boy in the Solomon
building kept his elevator up during
the wedding ceremony, the irate pa-
rents had to use the Los Kissan's ele-
vator, and when the young couple and
party were descending, in passing
down through the sixth story, they
caught a glimpse of gray heads in the
elevator opposite ascending.
Safely down, the Lenore's whistles
urged them on faster. At the corner
of Orleans avenue Miss Solomon
quickly swung the auto squarely
across the avenue and blocked traffic
until the couple, now Mr. and Mrs.
Heller, ran up, accomp*"ied by five

All were "all balled up for an In-

turned around. The policemen were
trying bard to open the way for the
club's auto, not knowing that an
elopement was on the calendar, and
that the beligerants were in the car
at that very instant. Before the auto
fairly started one of the club's mem-

car turn into the Marion Reserve, a
few blocks above, and she declared
,that it contained the parents of the
bride. Chickens and pigeons and

was to become a reproach, and an un-
married woma'a spinsterhood was re-
ferred to under one's breath. That
any woman should have chosen to re-
main single was an idea incredulous-
ly scored at by old and young.
There to today not a new species of
woman, but a new breed of old maids
-women who have considered and


who have chosen between carving'
their own ways through the world and
entrusting their lives and futures to
another's keeping.
The emancipation of woman from
this belief has marked the beginning
of a new era for woman. The single
state is no longer a terror, rather it
is alluring to woman. Emancipated
from domestic cares and responsibili-
ties that generation after generation
have destroyed her usefulness for all
other work in the world, and- emanci-
pated from the thrall of narrow con-
ventionalities, bravely assuming an
equal share of man's work and look-
ing for man's recompense, the woman
of today is blazing out a way for the
woman of the future that should lead
to greater things.
Whetner she will take advantage
of her opportunities or not is an un-
solved problem. Woman has always
been a spendthrift of opportunity.
Ah! wasteful woman! She who may
on her own sweet self set her own
price, knowing he cannot choose but
pay. How she has cheapened Para-
dise!


"How given for nought her priceless
gift!
How spoiled the bread and spilled
the wine.
Which spent with due respective
thrift,
Had made brutes men-and men
divine."
In the realm of literature, science
and art, and in the business life of
the world, woman is taking her place
and is filling it with credit. Another
generation, in altered environment
and unhampered by the trammeling
traditions of her ancestors, should ac-
complish much, but whether her
achievements will be a recompense
for the tenderer, more sacred ties,
whether the rewards she gathers from
the world will satisfy her nature as
does the prattle of children and the
love of husband is a question each
woman's heart must answer.

CHARLESTON WANTS THE NEXT
MEETING OF IRRIGATION
CONGRESS

Spokane, Wash, April 1.-Delegates
from the southern states to the meet-
ing of the National Irrigation Con-
gress in Spokane the second week in
August will make a concerted effort
to have the 18th session of the organ-
ization take place somewhere in the
south.
James Cosgrove of Charleston, S.
C., secretary of the sanitary and
drainage commission for Charleston
county, intimates this in a letter to
Arthur Hooker ,secretary of the local
board of control of the 17th congress.
He says:
"I would like to have you think over
the proposition to have the sessions
after the Spokane meeting somewhere
in the south. Personally, I believe
Charleston would be the right place.
and I have no doubt that our people
would arrange to entertain the dele-
gates royally."

FLORIDA CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR

We glean the following words from
a splendid report sent out by the so-
clety in the Congregational church in
Jacksonville: "Our prayer meetings
are becoming more interesting and
i the attendance is very good indeed.
At nearly every meeting since the
first of October we have had some-
thing especial in the way of music;
and we feel very grateful to the rem-
bers of the choir and these who have
so kindly lent us their assistance. We
have also purchased new song books
for use in our meetings, and have ta-
ken a church coupon book subscribing
fifty cents a Sunday for the -ijpport
of the churchl"
One of the most beautiful tributes
heard for a long while came in a let-
ter from an Endeavor friend recent-
ly. In speaking of another worker
the writer said: "She has done more
to encourage me than any person liv-
ing." Who of us would not wish to
deserve such words said of our influ-
ence over others? It is well worth
trying for by each of us.
The call for prayer and fasting by
ardnet temperance workers, on April
11th. comes from the State W. C. T.
U. leader, Miss Minnie E. Neal. But
prayer and fasting will amount to
very little is there is decisive work
we could do and it does not get done.
We will not deserve living in a "Flor-
ida for Christ" and upright, moral
states unless we do all we can to has-
ten such results.
The following bulletin will shortly
be issued from our office, and should
be carefully noted by those interested
in Christian Endeavor:
"Dear Workers in Our Young Peo-
ple's Societies-Today, April 1, ends
the official Endeavor year. Our State
Union is now twenty-one years old,
and I have been its secretary eight of
these years. For the fourth time an-
nual certificate blanks are being sent
you. Each year we have varied the
plan somewhat, but the leading
thought has continued the same,


"NIL DESPERANDUM"

(Written for the Ocala Banner.)
O'er life's trackless, arid prairie,
Once I wandered, soulless, dreary,
With a heart bowed down and weary,
And the winds did mourn and weep.

While my brain, almost demented,
In which seethed and boiled, ferment-
ed
Thoughts of sins-sins unrepented,
In black despair my soul did steep.
I cried aloud, with anguish madden-
ed,
I craved relief, nor surcease gladden-
ed,
My life by thoughtless actions sad-
dened,
And heart so full of bitter woe.
I raised my voice, from heaven im-
ploring
Relief. but heaven my prayer ignor-
ing,
Hurled back my plea, and conscience
scoring,
Drew sweat from every pore.
I changed my prayer, to hell. the
devil,
I cried, come, let us riot, revel;
Tear down restraint, old ideals level,
And put the world on hell's low
plane.

A voice came to me, soothing tremb-
ling,
And I my anger wild, dissembling,
Asked, who dare come? Who's here
assembling
To scoff at my petition vain?
Then fell that voice like balm trom
heaven,
Oh, cease thy blasphemy, all's forgiv-
en
By Him in whose dear hands were
driven
The cruel nails on Calvary's cross.
I heard, and tears my eyes o'erflow-
ing,
Called my poor heart, my hopes re-
storing,
And peace within that heart bestow-
ing,
A soul was found tbat had been
lost!

we might understand the working of
the commission. A member of the
board has on 'two occasions made a
circuit of all the larger dairies in
company with the inspector, besides
making other individual visits.
A summary might be made thus:
The milk is pure, because the cows
have been tested. The milk is being
handled in a more sanitary manner
from the time it is taken from the
cow until it reaches the consumer.
The same may be said of the meat.
As to the city's water. It is "hard"

cases of possible hydrophobia. All
this work was done promptly and wil-

NEGRO PREACHER FOUND DEAD
From Tuesday's Daily:
Rev. Isaac Draft, a negro preacher,
was found dead Monday morning
about two miles and a half from Mar-
tin on 'the Martin and Oldtown ioad.
He -was about 30 years old. The o:dy
was Pot disturbed, so th. cause c. his
death is unknown. The matter was
reported to the sheriff, and he sum-
moned a coroner's jury of inquest to
find out how the deceased came to his
death. The jury had not reported its
findings up to last accounts. The de-


ALLEGED "TIGERS" IN LIMBO
For some time Sheriff Galloway
has been on the track of operators of
blind tigers in different portions of
the county, but to secure evidence
against them is in most instances a
hard proposition.
On Sunday Deputy Hutson was sent
to Sumerfield to round up what was
supposed to be a "tiger" outfit.
He arrested a white man named A.
M. Holt and a negro named William
Summers and brought them to the
city. He captureit quite a quantity
of wet goods in the shape of bottled
beer, whiskey. "chasers," etc.
These men* will have a preliminary
hearing before Judge Bell on Thurs-
day.
