tory turns out some of the finest fruit
and vegetable crates in this country.
The growers here are as follows:
John Seiler, who makes a specialty of
cantaloupes and tomatoes, and will
grow watermelons next season to
ship in car lots. Mr. Seller is one of
the large growers of this section.
F. W. Webber is postmaster here,
but is imbued with the idea that the
farmer is the real producer, and while
he has not 'time to farm it himself, he
has lands in plant, which he rents to
farmers who produce that which all
the people want to live and be nappy
-fruits and vegetables.
H. Jones has a fine home farm here
and another in the famous Oklawaha
river district. Mr. Jones is one of the
Packer's readers,and one of the best
all round growers in Florida. Jones'
specialty is beans and cantaloupes,
but he will grow for next season a fine
field of watermelons, besides his gen-
eral farm crop of corn and sweet pota-
Paul White grows cantaloupes 'and
okra as a principal shipping crop, but
has a general farm crop that is wor-
thy of notice.

Anthony, Fla.-An'thony, eight
miles from the capital of Marion coun-
ty, is one of the finest all round farm-
ing sections in the state. It is not
only the banner cantaloupe town in
Florida, but it grows everything else
in farm products. Corn and oats are
the after-crops when cantaloupes and
watermelons have been shipped to
the northern markets. One farmer
here has already threshed out 7000
bushels of oats and has not yet finish-
ed. This is E. L. Howell, one of the
Packer readers. Mr. Howell is at
present away from home and will not
return until late in the fall.
The growers here are:
J. C. Baskin, who had 15 acres in
cantaloupes, makes a specialty of
beans and lettuce and grows an all
round Larm crop.
W. G. Smith grows beans, canta-
loupes, tomatoes and eggplant as
principal crops, and other farm pro-
ducts in season.
D. W. Shealey grows cantaloupes as
a principal crop.
F. W. Ellison is one of the large
cantaloupe growers of this section,
and also a large grower of general
far products. Mr. Ellison's oat crop,
after all other crops, amounted to
about 2000 bushels. Next season the
Ellison crop of cantaloupes and wa-
termelons will be the largest of this
section, as many acres have been add-
ed to the already large plantation.

spot for the purpose of perpetuating
the memory and commemorating the

Comrade Marion L. Payne made a
very patriotic and stirring speech in

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure now known
to the medical fraternity. Catarrh be-
ing a constitutional disease, requires
a constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is taken internally, act-
ing directly upon the blood and mu-
cous surfaces of the system, thereby
destroying the foundation of the dis-
ease, and giving the patient strength
by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its work.

Editor Stovall of the Tampa Trib-

often that we fail to see how he finds
time to return to it. Every letter re-

to leave before signing the above let-
ter, dictated by him."'-Perry Herald.

Stetson University has issued a spe-
cial bulletin, giving full information
concerning courses offered in Music,
the Fine Arts and the Mechanic Arts.
This may be secured by addressing a
postal card request to the University.
The faculty in the School of Music
includes nine instructors-graduates
of the great conservatories of the
country and students of the best mas-
ters in voice, piano, violin, organ, etc.
The Music School has fifteen pianos,
a $10.q00 pipe organ and the most
beautiful concert hall south of Balti-
more and Richmond.
The School of Fine Arts provides
for regular and special courses in
drawing (pen, pencil and crayon),
composition, modeling, illustration,
decorative painting, portrait painting
in oil, water colors and china paint-
ing. The department is in charge of
a refined and cultured Virginia lady
who is a graduate of the Woman's
College of Richmond, and who has
spent years abroad in the best schools
of art, in Paris, Rome and elsewhere.
The department has beautiful studios
and costly models and casts.
The School of Mechanic Arts is well
equipped with laboratories for physics
and chemistry, and with shops for
wood and iron working. The instruc-
tors in this department have been
trained in the Boston School of Tech-
nology, Columbia, Cornell and the
University of Chicago, and in the
world famous wood-working estab-
lishments of Sweden. The boys and
young men in this department are be-
ing prepared to take a prominent part
in the vast industrial developments I
of Florida which await the training
of her sons.




Some time ago a white attendant at
a negro revival in Atlanta, Georgia,
was so moved by the untutored elo-
quence of one of the exhorters, that
he seized pencil and paper and rapid-
ly set down the concluding sentences
of the harangue. It is, indeed, well
worthy of preservation. The primi-
tive imagination of the negro preach-
er rose to genuine sublimity as he
bent over his quivering hearers to
make them see the appalling horrors
of the Day of Judgment. The very
quaintness of his dialect gave power
to the bold and daring rhetoric of his
words. What he said is full of fire
and splendid unrestraint. It is more
than Miltonic. It is absolutely acpo-
calyptic, and produces the same effect
as some of those unearthly, striking
passages in the Book of Revelations:
"Oh, me! What you gwine ter do
w'en you see de debbil coming' in a
hailstorm, driving' a pa'r ob white
hosses, wid de lightning' fer reins, en
de thunder barkin' lak a houn' dog at
his heels; en him kickin' de big hills


Arthur Brisbane Credits Them With
Great Power
In a recent editorial on the income
tax, Arthur Brisbape, editor of the
New York Evening Journal, has the
following to say about the influence
of the country paper:
The v( ters Individually can do
much by writing to the members of
the legislature. But the local editors

throughout the country can do most
of all.
There are thousands of daily and
weekly newspapers published through-
out the United States in small cities,
towns and villages. They are edited
by men who influence public opinion
far more than the few metropolitan
newspapers possibly can do.
These editors and their newspapers
represent public thought. Upon them
depends really the success or failure
of this effort to incorporate the in-
come tax principle in the constitution
of the United States.
This newspaper and all of its allied
newspapers throughout the country
have worked for years persistently
for the income tax and will continue
to work for that just tax. But the
victory will be accomplished in the
end by the great number of local
newspaper editors writing daily in
close touch with the people, influenc-
ing strongly the legislator, possessing
the confidence of readers.


In electing Myron E. Gillette as
general manager of the exchange, the
board of directors again showed their
wisdom, for Mr. Gillette is not only
one of the most experienced fruit
growers and nurserymen in the state,
but he is a business man of such force
and ability as to be able to handle any
proposition put up to him, and such
men will be needed from now on, .ays
the Tampa Times. Dr. Peacock of
Winter Haven, will also make a most
excellent cashier. The orange grow-
er who refuses to follow the lead of
such men as Inman. Gray, Sample,
GilletTe. Palmer, Burton and others is
certainly a has-been of the archaics
age. Such antiquities are not needed
as members of the exchange.-Pro-
duce News.

Mr. A. Robinson of Drumquin. On-
tario, has been troubled for years
with indigestion and recommends
Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver

constipation give them a trial. They
are certain to prove beneficial. They
are easy to take and pleasant in ef-
fect. Price 25 cents. Samples free at

The Score, 6 to 2-Galloway Stars for
Ocala-Dodge Pitches a Good
Game-The Boys Elated
From Saturday's Daily:
Since leaving home Ocala's hall
team has had almost a triumphal
tour. They have won three out of
four games, and lost the sole game
only on close decisions.
Ocala is justly proud of her team.
and when the boys return she will
meet them with open arms and the
Metropolitan Band.
The following telegram tells the
joyful story:

Our sympathy for Editor Harris
and family over the death of Dr. Wm.
H. Powers. We consider the doctors
as present-day heroes, and the loss
for humanity great when one of them
dies. This seems particularly sad
when the physician is young, with a
bright future of usefulness anticipat-
"Acts and My Actions" is the topic
for Endeavor meetings, August 1st,
and let us not forget that it is the
monthly consecration service. The
Christian Endeavor World gives a
list of "Scenes in the Actast" which
should help make our programs prof-
itable. Please tell us how this topic
was observed by your societies, also

State President Winnard and wife
are taking a six weeks' tour in the
north. They first -went to New York,
and from there were to go to North-
teld, Mass., to enjoy the "inspirispirg Bi-
ble course. Other places were to be
visited and the return to Tampa
made late in August. We are all glad
Mr. and Mrs. Winnard could have
this vacation.
Our districts are approaching the
annual convention time, "the busiest
season of the year" for them. There
will probably be but four conventions
In 109, and these will be in Braden-
town, for Hillsboro and Manatee dis-
trict, October 24-25; Orlando, for Or-
mage and Osceola district; third, the
meeting of Lake and Sumter Endeav-
orers, place not decided on yet; then
last of all the convention in Interla-
chen for Northeastern district. The
friends from near-by districts will be
invited to these sessions, and the out-
look is bright for good, helpful times
for all who attend. It is cheering to
see the enterprise shown by leaders
in thus early ocmmencing plans for
the conventions, which Will close the

b We hope that many have read and
enjoyed the sublime addresses in the
Christian Endeavor World which
were delivered by Dr. Clark and Gen-
eral Secretary Shaw, at St. Paul. God
must surely have directed the pen
which wrote "Looking Backward-
Cbristian Endeavor Growth," and
-"Looking Forward."
Several friends have sent splendid
news letters for which the state press
superintendent is very grateful. In
the nine summers spent in service
for the Florida Union, we never re-
member of one when so many good
workers were staying at the helm of
local duty, "rain or shine." as this
The sturdy friends of our organi-
zation, President Wm. F. Blackman,
of Rollins College. has just written
us that he is supplying the pulpits
for the summer in the Eirst and
South Congregational churches in
Middleton, Conn.. while his family is
pleasantly settled in the parsonage of
the First church.
The glorious Fourth of July was
celebrated by Miss *agie Gilmore of
Gilmore. a local andl district officer,
by a fine poem. "Ameri. a." which was
printed in the Eve.ni:c Metropolis.
Mrs. Luella Knott. once the state mis-
sion superintendent, writes many
beautiful poems, and the Ocala Ban-
ner and Tampa Tribune have editors
who especially appreciate her verses.,
There are some very bright Endeav-
orers in Florida.

The first death we have heard of
this near C. E. year among our cir-
cle of Co-workers came July 16th.
when Dr. S. F. Gale ended the earthly
part of service for God and his fellow
men. An Endeavorer paid this trib-
ute in a letter which came to our of-
fice: "It makes us very heavy-heart-
ed, but how the angels will enjoy
having him there, and he will feel so
much at home, as it was always more
like Heaven anywhere he was." Is
not this something we would like to
have some time said of us?
Treasurer Rudolph Roseborough of
DeLand has issued a right-to-the-point
plea for funds, which all societies
should make note of. Send him
something, and the rest of yearly
dues later, it all cannot be paid now.
"Every little bit counts." is very true
of state financial help.
The State Allen C. E. Leaguers will

gram is already out.

absolutely justified in reprimanding

Ocala, Fla., July 28, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Just a few words on the subject of
My idea is that every man, or wo-
man, whose husband fought in the
Confederate army, is entitled to a
pension. no matter how much proper-
ty they own or how little: as a point
of justice it is their lawful right; it
belongs to them. The man of thous-
ands, as well as the pauper, or the
old drunken man in the gutter, if he
fought in the war or if he was taken
from his home and family and only
stood guard and never saw a Yankee,
is entitled to a pension just as much
as the one who fought. It was not
his fa uit that he was not at the front.
All fraud should be fully investigat-
ed and dealt with accordingly. If the
pension funds should run low, cut it
down. and let each one have a little.
Do th" thing right or cut it out alto-
gether, and if this pension system is
really intended for paupers inly, for
heaven's sake give it another heading,
and not Confederate Veterans. If
there is no sentimen' in the matter,
just a little consideration will do.

no on-e can apologize with better
grace than the Advocate, and we
herewith apologize to Joe Brown. His
article in last week's News. over his
own signature, fully convinces us that
he was the only Simon-pure, high-
toned Christian gentleman that was
in Tallahassee from DeSoto county
during the recent session of the leg-
islature. We trust this apology will
be accepted in the same spirit in

He said. "Sail on. sail on. and on."

the mate,

He curls his lip, be lies in wait

weeks were re-tested with mallein.
One horse developed glanders ten
days after the first injection and three '
horses after the second injection, and
were destroyed. The remaining 68
horses were returned to duty in their
respective troops and have remained
healthy up to this date, six months
after the first mallein test was made.
No new cases have appeared among
the four troops up to date. a
The summary result of the first f
mallein test, August, 1904, was as fol- s
lows: s
Number of cavalry horses at this 0
post, 215; proven healthy by first mal- t
lein injection, 143; proven infected by a
first mallein injection, 72; proven ii
healthy by second mallein injection, M
36; proven infected by second mallein li
injection, 36; proven healthy by third n
mallein injection, 24; proven infected a
by third mallein injection, 11, proven n
healthy by fourth mallein injection, 8. N
Four horses were destroyed, suffering h
with glanders. a
Col. H. L. Scott, reporting to the t
war department from Jolo, Philippine a
Islands, wrote as follows: g
The difficulty was in detecting glan- t
ders and isolating the infected horses rn
in the earlier stages of the disease, a
before it progressed far enough to be ti
communicated to others. In order to s
accomplish this a large quantity of s
mallein was procured, and all the ca-
airy horses were inoculated, with the
results mentioned within. It is be-p
lived from this and other informa-
tion that the mallein is a cure for t
glanders in its incipient stages, be- n
fore it has become sufficiently advanc- t
ed to be indicated by the ulcers in the N
nasal membrane, swelling of the
glands, etc.. and all the old symptoms h
usually relied upon for the diagnosis b
of glanders, and that by its use. as
shown within, the cavalry mount at I,
this post has been saved from com-
plete loss. The mallein seemed to act s

as a very strong tonic and these ani- is
mals that were weak and thin began
to Improve almost immediately, until
when returned to duty they were fat
and strong.
Army Veterinarian Richard 0. B. fl
Corcoran made a report of his work t<
on glanders among the horses at the cl
Residic of San Francisco, from which d;
the following extracts are taken: V1
I then injected I. C. C. of mallein w
into each animals at intervals of ten b4
to fourteen days. until all ceased to t<
react, both thermally and locally, pi
when they were returned to duty. Be- re
fore the second injection of mallein p,
was given the isolated horses of H tr
troop. I discovered that one had acute
and cutaneous glanders (No. 39) and
later another developed acute glan- c'
ders (No. 35). Both horses were de- sl
stroyed on February 3rd and 5th. re- st
At about the same time No. 21. of
the same troop H, showed indications fo
of chronic glanders, induratedd inter- tu
maxillary glands, slight nasal dis- tb
charge, and small characteristic ul- m
cer on Schneiderian membranes. This
animal, however, recovered, but the re
treatment was more protracted than ty
most of the others. d(
Months after this. in studying the a
matter over calmly and deliberately, al
I. personally, came to the conclusion fo
that glanders did exist to the enor- in
mous extent claimed by the state au- w,
thorities,. but that by the periodic re
testing of the herd with mallein by
veterinarians preceding us. it un- b<
knowingly acted as a curative agent. to

From all of these deductions, from

I have no hesitation in strongly rec-
ommending that all our public ani-
mals be injected annually or semi-
annually with mallein, especially in
the tropics, or where glanders is sus-
pected to exist, not only as a detect-
er, but as an immunizer, as well as a
treatment for the disease when reac-
tions are discovered. The intervals
between injections should not be less
than ten days, as I found in many of
the cases quoted, local reactions ex-

The man who is dissatisfied with
the way the affairs or his city are
conducted, and spends his time cuss-
ing out the administration, could, if
he would. remedy many of the evils
he complains of, says the Tampa
Times. He can keep his own premis-
es neat, tidy and sanitary. and not
only be repaid in health of his family,
but his example may inspire his
neighbors to do likewise.
He can build sidewalks and beauti-
fy the space fronting his home. He
can clean up that section of the
street-to the middle of the road-
and keep his ditches in shape to car-
ry off surface water. There 's no
law against daily sweeping off the
sidewalk fronting his store and hav-
ing the rubbish carted away in his
own delivery wagons. He can clean
up the alleys in the rear of his home
or store, and nobody will object. He
can observe all the city ordinances
first, and then have a right to talk
about his neighbor who violates them.
In his off time he can study the
needs of his city and when election
day comes around cast his vote and
his influence for men who are quali-
fed to fill the offices for which they
are candidates, regardless of whether
they are party men-or no party men
-or whether they are Bill, Tom or
Jack; and the fact that they are good
fellows and "mixers" need not over-
balance all his better judgment.
If he will attend to his share in
shaping the course of affairs 'there
will be less to find fault with.
The one man is every man.


For twelve years one federal sen-
itor came from Pensacola and one
rom Jacksonville. Practically ever
since Florida has been a state one
enator has come from the east side 1
af the Suwannee river, and one from
he west, but we are now confronted
rith the proposition of one city be-
ng the home of both the senators. t
manifestly this is unfair, and we be-
leve the people of Florida will recog-
ize the right of the vast territory t
west of the Suwannee to have recog-
ition in the United States senate.
We believe the time and the man
ave met in William A. Blount. and
re sincerely trust that he will con- y
inue to consider this matter favora- y
ly. Blount and Fletcher in the sen-
te would equal matters up along a
geographical line, and at the same
ime would give to this state a rep- h
esentation in that high tribunal such t
s we have never enjoyed at any one f
ime heretofore, and a delegation as
strong intellectually as that from any
tate represented there.-Pensacola f

Because these two cities, for the n
ast twelve years have furnished both
hie United States senators it ought
ot necessarily give them "squat-
er sovereignty rights" on this office. i

perhaps more so than in any other in

bould join forces and keep up a hot H

unjust and unwarranted discrimina- a

The instant and most imperative
call to the progressive forces of Pen-
sacola is to solidly combine to make
the tri-county fair a complete success.
The undertaking is far from being a
light one. It will be weighted with
numerous cares, complicated by an in-
tricate web of detail and obstructed
by many rough and troublesome ob-
Those directly concerned in the pro-
duction deserve and should receive
the earnest support of the mass of
our people. They show themselves to
be public-spirited citizens, alive to
the interests of the city and should
be cheered on in the good worti by
the sympathy and help of all.
The ten sub-committees of the joint
committee of the Merchants' Associa-
tion and Chamber of Commerce will
this morning commence their visits to
the business men of the city, seeking
subscribers to the stock of the Fair
Association. The eagerness of sev-
eral business houses and individuals
to be placed among the subscribers
Tuesday confirms the Journal's here-
tofore expressed opinion that the peo-
ple give enthusiastic approval to the
holding of the fair.
Tuesday's volunteered subscrip-
tions, amounting to six hundred and
twenty-five dollars, were, we believe,
a happy augury that the collection of
the needed seven thousand dollars
will prove a comparatively light task,
and that each of the sub-committees
when making a report this evening,
will show a substantial addition to
the treasury of the association. t
The committees should remember. s
however, that a fuller success will be t
insured by a large number of small I
subscribers, than by a small number I
of large subscribers, for every stock- t
holder, large or small, will become .
most active in securing that success
And citizens unable to subscribe e
largely should not permit false pride y
to deter them from investing ev-n in e
one share of the stock; which, by the
way, would be no insignificant contri- r
bution toward the good cause. But e
every man interested in the city
should make up his mind to do some-
thing to advance an undertaking
which will prove of inestimable bene-
fit to Pensacola and the th-ree cou- c
ntis which will participate. p
The Journal hopes the sub-commit- b
tees will meet nothing but cheerful v
faces, willing hearts and open hands, '
which will be the happiest harbinger a
e success and the greatest inspira- p
tion to work for those who are partic- t
ilarly devoting their time and labor r
to it.-Pensacola Journal. f

year in Ocala. and there Is grave per-
il to the Public health.
, In the columns of the Jacksonville
Metropolls. Mr. E. O. Painter makes
*be following timely suggestions:
If JacksonvWle had no worse men-
Sce to health than the weeds that
are now growing on the vacant lots,
roads and by-paths, she would be the
healthiet city in the world. I don't
believe you can find a physician, or
anyone who knows anything about
thp effect of growing vegetation that
will claim that growing weeds are un-
healthy. I am sure I would a good
deal rather have a lot next to me
covered with a rank growth of weeds
than to have the hot sun beaming
down 'n the bare sand to be reflected
back, which heat seems to be intensi-
Sed in its reflection. Let one of your
reporters start across a stretch of
barren sand and get the full benefit
of the sun beaming down on it, and
then cross a field that is covered with
weeds, and he will note a great differ-
ence, not only in the temperature,
but in the very air he breathes. Some
of our weed kickers overlook the fact,
or are Ignorant of it, that the weeds
are scavengers, that they take up the
fetid matter that Is accumulating in
the soil from the decomposition of
vegetables or animals. We have a law
on our statute books that protects the
buizzard because he is a scavenger,
and consumes decaying animals that
would be dangerous to health and cer-
tainly very disagreeable to the nos-
trils. But why not protect the weeds
that are doing practically the same
In some cities there is an appropri-
ation made for the poor people to
plant the vacant lots with crops.. This
is done not only to help the poor, but
it helps the appearance of the lot and
adds to the healthfulness of the neigh-
borhood. I would as soon see a lot
covered with dog fennel as corn, if it
were not for the fact that corn gives
back something in return for the la-
bor. The dog fennel is a much better
scavenger than the corn, and it will
thrive where the corn will starve to
death. It is the "razor back" of the
woods, because it can get nourish-
ment where other plants would soon
The fertilizer man has long known
the value of decaying animal or vege-
table matter, and hundreds of thous-
ands of dollars are spent every year
in gathering this waste material and
preserving it so it can be used for en-
riching the soil far distant from
where it is accumulated. Now, if this
material was not gathered and pre-
served, but allowed to decay, how of-
fensive it would be. Fertilizer is the
beginning and end of every living
thing. It is the preserver of health
and a source of pleasure and profit
when properly preserved and used,
but when not properly taken care of
i t becoems a menace to health and
unpleasant for everyone in the neigh-
The weeds that grow on the vacant
lots are continually taking up the fer-
tilizer that accumulates in the soil
and robs it of its objectionable quali-
ties and produces new live tissues. It

is not :he living plants that are in-
P Curious to the health, but the dead
and decaying ones. Weeds that are
cut down and allowed to remain on
the surface to decay do not add one
bit to the health of our city.
If your weed kickers would spend
:heir time and energy looking after
the ruts and sinks in some of our
back streets and allies that hold wa-
ter for days after a rain, and which
becomes stagnant and breeds foul
smells and mosquitoes, and remedy
it. they would be doing some good for
the health and good looks of our city.
If the authorities would look out
for the breeding places of the com-
mon house or typhoid fly (musca do-
mestica) they would do a whole lot
towards improving the health of our
city and ridding it of one of its se-
rious annoyances. If all the manure
heaps around the stables and the
piles of accumulated trash where flies
breed were sprinkled with water in
which arsenate of lead has been dis-
solved at the rate of five pounds to
fifty gallons of water, it would pre-
vent the hatching of millions of flies.
These flies delight in dining on pu-
trid matter and then cleaning their
wings on your kitchen or dining room
table. And the sprinkling of the ma-
nure heaps would not cost half what
it would to cut all the weeds down in
the city.
It is my private opinion publicly ex-
Iresd that It is one of the best


Special to the Ocala Banner:
Just like '"Bartz, who never sleeps,"
were the Just Us Girls club members
during the recent wash-overs. Dur-
ing the days of the rains, the club's
drawing room and special office were
not deserted day or night. From the
top of the Solomon Sunset building
several pairs of eyes always peeped.
Far out over the winding Oklawaha
the optics kept watch. They were
the tantalizing optics of the members
of the J. U. G. club, and down at the
"Bends," in readiness with pick and
shovel were fifty-five men. They were
pleasantly quartered on the Silver-
ton, and she had steam up ready,
should "Big Hamp" sound the over-
flow signal. These men were ready
to build levees from Chitty's avenue
to Sunday Bluff, If needed. But thanks
to the thoughtfulness of the J. U. G.
club in building the Mary Lou bulk-
heads in 1906, they were not needed.
The Oklawaha advanced one foot,
then one and a half, two, then three,

made this winter. Linking this
amount to Los Kiss' thousand and
five hundred barrels, this city sure
will be a sweet port indeed, in syrup
season. *
And we get 65 cents f. o. b. Los
Kiss for our syrup. How? Why, peo-
ple, we have agents for all Los Kiss'
products in the United States and
Canada. The famous Just Us Girls
club at Los Kiss pays these agents.
There are five of them, two in Penn-
sylvania, one in Canada, one in Maine
and one in Michigan, and we Los
Kissans are prospering thereby.
At early dawn of Thursday Pete
Button, im of the Los Kissan, and
night watchman for the Solomon
15-story Sunset building, came down
to our office, and related: "Been down
in the early morning to my bungalow
and boat house to see the young In-
dian chief. In the dusk of two suns
ago," continued Pete, "I chanced to
be home when an Indian, who appear-
ed to be a chief among his tribe, glid-
ed up 'the Oklawaha in his dug-out
canoe and landed at my dock. This
Indian was in full dress and wore
moccasins. His attire was spotlessly
clean, except his mossacins, which
were a little muddy, caused from
tramping in the jungles. He rowed
up to the bulkhead, then stood up in
his canoe and, not in the least notic-
ing me, glanced up the broad and
clean Mary Lou divide and Figueroa
avenue. Shading his eyes with a
palm leaf which he carried, he looked
and muttered: 'Heap much clean in
Los Kiss; fine white castles in Los
Kiss.' I watched him carefully, and
the next instant he sat down and
pulled off his moccasins and washed
them carefully, then readjusted them
to his feet and approached me, smil-
ing cheerfully. 'This is Pete Button,'
he said, in good English. I told him
he was right, and I then asked his
name. 'I am Wau Guin-Guin, and I
know the Seminole and Shoshaw de-
scendants and the descendants of
other tribes, and. sir, I know Misses
Landsdown, Herrington and Colomon
of the J. U. G. club, and I am here in
the interest of the famous Los Kiss
driveway, Marion Reserve, that great
street which divides Los Kiss from
the Marion national preserve. I wish
the J. U. G. club to place Indian mon-
uments on this driveway."
"The chief and warrior," said Pete,
"produced a map of the driveway and
spread it out fiat on the ground and
pointed out to me the locations for
said monuments."
The Just Us Girls club's steamer,
Ethelton, blew for Los Kiss at this
juncture of our conversation. Pete
jumped some three feet in the air and
shouted: "My girl, Bo! She is due to
arrive from Jacksonville, and surely
she is aboard the Ethelton. More
about the warrior, Wau Guin-Guin
and his plans later."
It is not generally known, but 'tis
a fact, the Indian washed his mocca-
sins in Gore's creek so as not to soil
the streets in Los Kiss as he walked.
Wonderful buildings are under seal
in Los Kiss. Later on the J. U. G.
club will break these seals and "tell
it out."-Los Kiss Cor. St. Helena Ir-

A Paris special of late date says
that such emotions as fear and melan-
choly are conveyed by a small nerve
which springs from the human brain

near the medulla oblangota. the top
of the spinal cord.
This was announced by Dr. Bonnier,
a distinguished surgeon, who adds
that he has removed this nerve, and
so relieved persons suffering from
melancholia and timidity.
Other surgeons seem skeptical
about the value of Dr. Bonnier's dis-
covery. But newspaper paragraphers
find opportunity to discuss the possi-
bility of turning a coward into a hero
by a surgical operation.

the optics of our immediate common-
wealth's civilized citizens is the old
gulch known as Powl Creek, that
winding crack in the earth travers-
ing the Minute Railroad from the east
rim of Santa Singerland to the Okla-
waha, entering it below the dancing
pavilion on Pacific Boulevard.
Shall this, the only thing we know
of, mar our sweet and blooming white
city of Los Kiss forever?-Morning
Los Kissan, March 25th, 1908.
The property known as Powl Creek,
the old dilapidated gulch the Los Kis-
san spoke of as being an eye-sore to
everyone, belonged to Mr. VanCouver
of Eureka. And that same day the
Just Us Girls Club met in special con-
ference. They set Mr. Pete Button
to the task of drawing maps of the
gulch. Mr. VanCouver was communi-
cated with by a special committee of
the club and was induced to sell the
property to Los Kiss for $11,000 in
gold. Miss Irene Button, who was
then president of the J. U. G. Club,
bought the property and immediately
paid for the same, several thousand
dollars of the money passing through
an Ocala bank. Miss Button had ideas
in her head, and so did her intelligent
brother, Pete. Within a week the
property was owned by the city and
the ideas of the club were carried
out, in that it was to be a sunken gar-
den. Six gardeners from Scotland
were employed. They set to work at
Santa Singerland and worked north-
ward. A little later three more gar-
deners arrived, and were stationed at
the Los Kiss end. Now, wondrous
are the gardens, nearly completed.
Rose bushes, magnolias, palm, fig and
mulberry trees are bordering the rims
and on the sides are the holly berry,
cedar, kumquats, lilies, pansies and
other flowers, grasses and trees. The
immediate bott m is only a foot wide,
and is a cemezFbasin through which
water runs continuously.-Los Kiss

The Seav, Ala., Messenger says:
The report published in the Mes-
senger several days since of the birth
of a strange looking child near the
line of Alabama and Florida did not
impress itself upon our people as be-
ing strictly truthful. Not that they
doubted the source from whence it
came to Troy, but it seemed impossi-
ble that such a thing could happen in
these days.
But the Messenger is in position to
verify the report and add a little in-
teresting facts to it.
JThe child (if it can be called a
child), was born, and lived several
days. It was covered from head to
foot with hair; it had two short
horns, one over each ear, and its feet
were like the hoofs of a cow.
After living several days the child
died. Some think it was murdered.
It is now in Dothan, where the re-

Are Made the Target From Fierce
Black Feminine Eyes and Beat a
Retreat in infusion

A special to the New York World
from Trenton, N. J., is made to ex-
claim: "What in the wide world two
justices of the court of errors and ap-
peals should want of dainty Parisian
corsets, trimmed witn oaby blue rib-
bons and lace it is hard to say, but
that they did want those mysterious
articles of feminine attire and other
bits of lingerie of quaint design and
delicate workmanship was evident to-
day. They showed it by the unblush-
ing way in which they bid upon the
corsets and robes de nuit and-well,
on the other things which State Mar-
shal Thomas J. Alcott knocked down
to the highest bidder by order of Un-
cle Samuel.
"The things had been smuggled in-
to the state at Hoboken and seized 'by
the customs men. They were valued
by the government appraisers at
$3000. Advertising and other expens-
es incident to their sale at auction
cost $900. They brought $800.
"Pretty stenographers by the dozen
attended the sale and many state offi-
cials were present, for the auction
was held in 'the old state capitol.
The girls thought they were going to
have things all their own way, but
when the grave and dignified judges
began to bid on the corsets and slum-
ber robes and chemisettes there was
a deal of excitement and annoyance
shown by the stenographers, and they
said that they thought the judges
were just horrid to run the prices up
against them so. The judges seemed
a trifle confused when they were
made the target of angry glances
from so many bright eyes, and finally
they backed out of the room and left
the girls in sole possession."

Miss Almyra SessiMons, one of t
most prominent society girls in Wash"
ington, who secretly made her stage
debut here one week ago, balked at
appearing In tights in "It Happened
in Nordland," in which she was to
have had her second part at the Na-
tional Theater lately, just before the
performance. Her part was taken by
Lenna Duer, another member of the
company. Miss Sessions put on her
street clothes just as the curtain was
ringing up, and left the stage, says
the New York World, went out and
bought a seat in the orchestra and
witnessed the performance.
Miss Sessions is the daughter of
Mrs. Benjamin Reeves Russell, wife
of Col. Russell, of the marine corps.
She has appeared in the principal
parts of several amateur performanc-
es wuich have been given each sea-
son by members of the exclusive
younger set. She has a fine voice, and
recently she returned from abroad,
where she had studied under celebrat-
ed teachers.
Without notifying any of her
friends Miss Sessions obtained an en-
gagement with the Aborn Opera Co.,
here and appeared professional for
the first time in a small part in '"The
Sultan of Sulu." She made a hit and
was engaged for the second week.
She was told that she was to "lead
the sridiers" in the second act, but
nothing was said to her about wear-
ing tights. The costumes did not
reach Washington until just before
the performance, and when Miss Ses-
sions was handed out her soldier
"pants in the second act she nearly
collapsed. She told the management
thet wou!d not appear in tights. The
management said she mubt. Miss
Session, had visions of her socciety

on. Shi was told she could "take her
cloths and go."

The following Uncle Remus anec-

Chronicle-Telegraph: "Joel Chandler
Harris," said an Atlantan, "used to
write comic newspaper editorials.
Sometimes he made fun of rival edi-
tors in them, too. Simon Simpson, a
rival editor in Mobile, having been
made fun of, wrote angrily in his
rage: 'Joel Chandler Harris has been
getting off some cheap wit at our ex-
pense.' Harris, on reading this,
grabbed up his pen and dashed off as
quick as a flash for next day's issue:
'It must have been cheap, Simon, to
be at your expense.'"

and Puts Them to Sleep
Held a prisoner by a cordon of an-
gry rattlnakes, far from any habi-
tation, with only a pocket lantern to
reveal his surroundings In the
depths of what is known as the Black
Forest, Dr. W. E. Delaney of State
Run, believed that his last hour had
Come, and that he was about to die a
miserable death in a grewsome -pot.
A happy thought saved his life. There
was a bottle of chloroform in his med-
icine chest.
The thought was put into action,
every snake was put to sleep, and
the victorious doctor pursued his way
in peace and triumph.
Dr. Delaney is often called at night
to go into what is known as the
Black Forest region, where Weed &
Co., have several large lumber camps.
The doctor owns a velocipede truck,
which he rides over a little narrow
guage railroad used to haul logs out
of the woods. He can ride within
two miles of the camp; these last
two miles being covered on foot by
way of a zigzag path through the

which, when he rides his velocipede
car, he hangs on the front as a head-
light. One night he received a tel-
ephone message to come to the for-
est to attend a woodman who was
very ill. It was almost midnight when
he left home. The moon shone
brighthly and he did not light the lan-
tern. At the end of the run, however,
where he left the car, he detached
the lantern and carried it in his hand.
thinking he might need it to light his
way back.
In his other hand he carried a med-
icine case. which contained, among
other things, a pint bottle of chloro-
At a point along the way the path
runs through a small clearing, where
once the stable of a lumber camp
stood. This is now grown over with,
a crop of grass nearly a foot high.
Dr. Delaney had just stepped into
this grass-covered clearing whe'i he
was startled by the sharp, unmistaka-
ble sound of a snake's rattle at his
feet. Involuntarily he leaped for-
ward, landing almost in the center of
the grass plot, when to his horror and
dismay he heard a chorus of rattles.
The sounds seemed to come from all
sides ef him. He dared not move
lest he step on the vetnomous snakes
and to stand still seemed almost as

The Times answers emphatically,
The feverish rush for business, the
interminable scramble for supremacy,
the greater tax on humanity, the wor-
ry and vexation involved-all these
are tolerable for the improved condi-
tions, the greater opportunities now
open to men and women. Having

picture of today-it is before us, with
all of its beauties and attractions-
and its iniquities as well.
