FLORIDA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1909
I UUw.5 1,
Mr. H. W. Nettles of the Flemington
section was a visitor Friday. Besides
running a farm, Mr. Nettles operates
a sawmill and says that although he
saws only to supply the lo.,,demand-
he is always kept busy. He reports a
fine corn and bay crop and says that
the farmers are now busy saving th.
latter crop. He reports very little
business in his neighborhood.
Mr. Patrick T. Randall, merchant
and postmaster of Conner, was a
Friday visitor. He says that wh*!i
there was a great deal of sickness
across the river some weeks ago thete
is very little now, and the people are
busy saving their different crops of
hay, and are making ready to plant
their fall crops.

Mr. J. M. Meffert, president of the:

While in the north he visited many of

seeing what there is new in the indus-
try and what might be applied to hi"

agreed with him.
In renewing his subscription to the
Ocala Banner, Mr. W. P. Strunk of

SCHOOL DAYS ONCE MORE
The Ocala High School and the
Gcala Primary School will throw open
their doors qext Monday morning Lor
the admission of their contingent of
scholars, and Ocala will assume a
new phase of life. With the exception
of two teachers the same faculty will
be in charge as last year. In the olden
time wLen Ocala was the location for
the East Florida Seminary, one of the
two state schools, we thought we
were doing fairly well when we had
three wings to a single story building,
and had one hundred students in at-
tendance from all parts of the state,
it this year we have two two-story
buildings, and, with the scholarship
exclusively local, we shall perhaps
have fully five hundred pupils in it-
tendance. Few things present a pret-
tier sight than an army of well-clad,
well-behaved, merry school children
on their way to school unless it is thn
same army of school children just let
loose from school with their faces
FINED AND IMPRISONED FOR
SHOOTING WILD TURKEYS
OUT OF SEASON
Mr. C. G. Parker, a farmer living
near the Oklawaha river swamps.
was tried before Judge Joseph H.
Bell Tuesday, charged with violating
the game laws, by shooting and killing,
three wild turkeys out of season. It
seems that the evidence was clear,
and as the law is plain on the sub-
ject the court reluctantly imposed a
fine of $50 and ten days' imprison-
ment in the county jail upon the un-
fortunate defendant. In default of
the payment of the fine then the sen-
tence of the court is that he must
serve an imprisonment of twenty
days. Those who administer the law-3
in this county are determined that the
game laws shall be respected andl

Bad Luck Overtakes a Former Marion
county Young Man ,
Surrendering all hope of a success-
ful appeal to the supreme court, Z. P.
Freeman, formerly city tax collector
and assessor, was escorted to the con-
vict camps of T. E. Bridges & Co.,
yesterday morning. The lessees in
question sent a special agent from
Jacksonville for the condemned man.
Freeman is sentenced to five years
in the penitentiary for embezzling city
funds. Immediately after his conv.c-
tion, his attorneys, Macfarlane & Da-
vis and J. T. McCollum, made a mo-
tion before Judge Gordon for a new
trial. The motion was overruled and
notice of an appeal to the supreme
court was then given. Part of the
necessary papers were filed, but the
rest of them were not, as Freeman's
case appeared hopeless, and so, after
four months spent in the county jail,

Freeman was never considered a
criminal at heart. He was more a
victim of that curse of many a man,
"a good fellow,." and suddenly found
himself so deep in the mire that ex-

daughter was a touching finale to this,

BLIND TIGER MEN ARRESTED
Mr. W. F. Pulliam, deputy sheriff
for the Reddick district, has had his
eye on some "blind tiger" dens for
some time, and he phoned to Sheriff
Galloway Saturday that he had tha
places located and if he would go up
or send up Saturday night they would
be able to make a capture. As the
sheriff's little son was sick he sent
up Deputy Sheriff Hutson, and three
arrests were made. The parties were
caught with the goods.

FIRE WEDNESDAY MORNING
Wednesday morning at four o'clock
a fire alarm was sounded in the third
ward. and though the department re-
sponded very promptly, the small un-
used house in which the fire was dis-
covered had been consumed. It was
cottage owned by a colored woman
named Chaney Benton, and had not
been occupied for some time.
This same house had been set on
fire about four nights ago. but the
neighbors discovered it and put the
blaze out before any alarm was sent
The incendiaries were more su:-

and the house is now in ashes.

LETTER FOR OUR
New York, Sept. 21, 1909.
Special to the Ocala Banner:
Among the newest shades for the
winter gowns are the following: Wal-
nut, dark, rich olive green, taupe, wis-
teria, coal dust, raison, sperry, egg-
plant, nutmeg, artichoke, chickory,
navy and black.
At present the annual dressmakers'
convention of America is being held
in New York City, and the various es-
tablishments are showing their hand-
somest and newest models, and the
dress-makers from various parts of
the country are very busy viewing
these models at both private and pub-
lic exhibitions, and making sketche.
of them for the benefit of their pat-
rons later on.
Green is to be a most popular sha-le
this season-green of every conceiv-
able shade and material. This color
is especially noted in the exquisite
models for evening gowns. The even-
ing gowns show a decided change
from the exaggerated styles of la-st
season. There is still a marked indi-
viduality in the styles, but the con-
spicuous effects that were required to
be so skillfully made are no longer
absolutely necessary. The one-piece
evening gown is not the only style
this season, as many of the smartest
gowns have the skirts and waists
made separately, although the empire
gowns are by no means to be entire-
ly discarded. Skirts for evening
gowns are to be much wider and long-
Broadcloth is to be much worn th's
season, and it is already shown in the
shops in various grades and colors,
the better ones lustrous and soft, and
not so shiny as the less expensive
Camel's hair, Venetian, zibelines
and diagonal cloths will all have a
share in the wardrobe of the fashion-
able woman this season. The weaves
are not the same, however, being
lighter, following the tendency of
lighter weight clothes which was
started by chiffon velvets several
years ago. In the camel's hair and
zibelines the hairy appearance is on
the under side and the outer surface
is as smooth, as chiffon broadcloth.
Nearly all of the newest models in
coat suits show a very long coat--
some only a few inches shorter than
the skirt. They are semi-fitting and
The Jersey dresses and coat dress-
es are among the newest and most
popular models and they are being
very widely worn at the present time.
They are close-fitting to the knees,
the skirts being pleated and the
waists elaborately braided-or else
The Russian toques and tailored
hats of the Napoleonic type have
made their appearance. The toques
are very attractive. They are high,
are worn well over the face and ap-
pear to be made almost entirely >f
The tailored hats. for the most pars,
are turned up sharply on one side an'l
decorated with a flat straight bov
across the turned-up side, or frille's
ribbon laid fiat.
Ostrich plumes decorate the tailo"-
ed hat, generally passing over the
crown to add height. These lend c.
wonderfully softening effect.
In the matter of cut, the curass ef-
fect may be said to dominate the fall
styles. For one thing the cuirass fits
closely and gives full credit to the
waist line; also it is elaborately trim-
med in various ways-braided, em-
broidered, jetted or plastered with
some of the antique trimmings no-
ticeable in advance showings of gu:i-
metal, jeweled bandings, etc.
Black and white combinations
promise to be more popular than ever.
Filmy white over black, or vice versa,
white net, jetted, and other combina-
Turban brooches will be one of the
winter fads. These are to appear on
the sultan's turban, the latest dev.el-
opment of headgear, which is soft silk
of brilliant coloring, wrapped round
and round and decorated in front with
the Oriental brooch and an aigrette.

IN SCHOOL DAYS
Still sits the schoolhouse by the road.
A ragged beggar sunning;
Around it still the sumachs grow.
The blackberry vines are running;
Within the master's desk is seen. ,
Deep-scarred by raps official:
The warping floor, the battered seat..
The jackknife's carved initial;
The charcoal frescoes on the wall.
The door's worn sill, betraying
The feet that. creeping slow to school
Went storming out to playing.
Long years ago a winter's sun
Shone over it at setting,
Lit up its western window panes
And low eaves' icy fretting.
It touched the golden, tangled curls. d
And brown eyes full of grieving. ba 1
Of one who still her steps delayed
When all the school were leaving. Hus
For near her stood the little boy, o'ws V
Her childish favor singled;
His cap pulled down upon his face
Where pride and shame were min-
Pushing with restless feet the snow
To right and left. he lingered;
As restlessly her tiny hands
The blue-checked apron fingered:
He saw her lift her eyes; he felt
The soft hand's light caressing.
And heard the trembling of her volev,
As if a fault confessing:
"I am sorry that I spelt the word;
I bate to go above you.,
Because"-the brown eyes lower fell;
"Because, you see. I love you!" a -
Still memory to the gray-haired mnu
That sweet child face is showing-
Dear girl! the grasses on her grave VIE,--
Have 40 years been growing.
He lives to learn, in life's hard school.
How few who pass above him.
Lament their triumph and his los.
Like her, because they love him. .t

But there is still room for improve-

l:ave been unfair to our congressmen

during the extra tariff session, recent-

The best friends of N. B., who know,
:egret his using such extravagant
language as he is reported as having
used. And now, he is getting a touch
of some unfair, insinuating remarks.
One paper reported that he had re-
cently cleaned up $50,000 in some
real estate deal in Everglades lands.
The item was copied with cutting
vcrds, intimating that the erstwhile
strenuous Napoleon had made the
money out of "politics." Finally, the
ever-fair Tailahassee True Democrat
f'-els called upon to assure the state
that this $50.000 had been made- out
of a business transaction since Mr.
broward ceased to be governor. Thus
our former executive is meeting "un-

break about "our men" at Washing-

The assumption is that all men not
only have equal rights, which is a
democratic truth, but that they have
equal abilities and fitness for the di-
rection of the affairs of the state,
which is the grossest of errors. It is
in this spirit that the interpretation
of our primary law, which hither'o
has prevailed, invites every man to be
a candidate, tells the weakest and
least fit that he has the same
rigths as others, that his merits hav-e
too long been overlooked, and that

didates who will be representative
Under the primary law as we have
it the effort hitherto has been to bring
mediocrity and inferiority to the fro:t..
That always will be its tendency andI
effect, unless directed by the conven-
tion system. Political parties are
means through which representative
government is assured. There can be
no representative government without
them. There must be some agency
for concentration of the purposes of
the masses of people, who have com-
mon ideas and purposes of govern-
ment. But the direct primary, as
heretofore used in our state, destroys
or defeats party action. a
Its purpose is to eliminate the lead-
ership of the strongest and ablesi
men. False conception of equaliPv
requires this, or calls for it. Thb
ablest man in a majority party is a
"boss." His supporters constitute a
"machine." Down then, with the
ablest man. with the ablest men, an I
with their supporters! Every man is
fit and competent as any other or ev-
ery other, in the government of the
state, and in the direction of its f-
fairs. Yet savages and gangs of boys
on the street have sense enough, to
choose the most sagacious to lead in
counsel: and even pirates will put the
best navigator in charge of the ship.
But in matters of state the princples
of equality calls for rejection of the
principle or method, and no thought
is to be taken about the qualifications
of the man who insists on the place
at the helm. He is popular: he is a
good fellow; he flatters "the people:"
he wants the job. And he will surely
get it, over any man better qualified
for it than he is-because there is
felt to be a certain kind of aristocracy
in talent and capacity, which should
shut out any man for whom these
qualities are claimed.
This is the way an unguided pr!-
mary works-a primary not guided by
representative selection. The fact is
fully understood from experience and
from the result. Hence the recogn'z-
ed necessity of the representative as-
sembly or convention, for suggestion
of representative candidates for the
primary election. In all this there is
no distrust of the people. On the con-
trary. it is simple insistence that th
people have the right to the best ser-
vice that their deliberation and their
suffrage can command.
Some of the newspapers say that
Peary is gradually coming into his
own. But how is one to prove his own
or disprove another's discovery of the
pole? How true is what Byron said:
"Roll on. thou dark blue ocean, ro!l!
Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee
Man marks the earth with ruin-his
Stops with the shore."
Neither Cook nor Peary left anr
ing him with hoofs and horns, but the,
chasm has now been bridged and a
northern newspaper has pronounced
an eulogy upon Mr. Davis that mu.;L
touch all hearts and in warmth and
affection is strong enough to wipe out
all traces of sectionalism and again
bring about the most cordial rela-
tions and good fellowship between th2
north and the south.

ALBERT WILLIAMSON ON
CUP THAT CHEERS
Call it a fad, craze, or whatever you
please, but the. fight against drinking
in other places than homes is becom-
ing world-wide in its scope.
Ever since the days of old Lot th.e
prayers of good women and repentant
men have been lifted up against in-
temperance in the drink habit.
We know it to be wrong. We know
it causes uis to suspend money and tit>-
we have no right to spend, and s;il
like the hogs made drrnk on the swill.
right back at it again we go.
"Oh. just one more!" "Now you
never have taken a drink with me'"
How often have we heard this un-
reasonable and suicidal twaddle.
Wonder why we don't hear: Come
have a collar and cravat with me!
Just as "all the world loves a lover,'
so also is the edict going forth that
all the world is up in arms against
this social drinking in public places.
It will not surprise us to see the
next Florida legislature enact the
most strongest laws along this line.
We believe it will take off the
screen doors in whiskey houses and
prohibit drinking on the premises
where whiskey is sold.
We mean by this that whiskey, wine
or beer will not be sold except by the
gallon -or bottle, and that the man who)
drinks it will have to take it home or
go to jail.
The cup that cheers is the pace that
kills, and it's the social glass tha'-
does it all.
The old Latin axiom "In vino veri-
tas"-in wine there is truth-coui>d
much more property be interpre:e.i
in wine there is recklessness.
One not only becomes reckless frna;
such drinking, but shows an utter
abandon for the rights of others or the
obligations of home life.
We almost daily see srch m-n
squandering dollar after dollar in ;; '
nonsensical habit who cannot aff e';e
(?) to buy a pair of socks or a decen.it
Our friends may say "it takes a
thief to catch a thief!" All of which
is true. We would not care to hear
a man lecture on some foreign coun-
try who has never been there. And
so it is with drinking in public plac-
es-the man who has not served his
time is not a competent witness.
We believe, the day of the "gilde I

WHEN I AM SICK
When I am sick, nobody cares,
Nobody wails, that copper shares
Will fall on my account;
Nobody watches eagerly
For bulletins concerning me,
To much, I don't amount.
Nobody wants to first be sure,
About my daily temperature
Before he sells or bays:
No values rise or fall with me,
The world goes on right merrily,
Whether I sleep or rise.
When I am sick, no markets drop,
No business deals come to a stop,
No panic strikes the town;
Railroads go on and steamships ply
The rolling waves the same, if I
Am either up or down.
No neighbor comes unto my bed
With anxious brow and hasty tread,
Beseeching me to say
Whether my illness chronic is
That he may go about his biz
And turn a trick that day.
And yet. when I am sick. a few
Come unto me as friends true blue
To cheer me in distress;
With love they come upon my bed
And not one word is ever said
Of money or success.
Solicitous ,bout my health.
Nc' qs it might affect their wealth,
The market or 'th-ir shares;
rnot :h.at they wish the best for me
r omn every selfish motive free,
Friends, and not bull or hears.
And so. as on through life I go.
I have :lhV w,:.sh to keep it so,
I want not wealth or fame.
I have a gift that's far above
A hoard of gold-and that is love,
A few friends I may name.
And when it comes my turn to die,
Perhaps these friends will sadly sigh
And mourn that I have gone.
But none will wail a fortune lost,
Or count in copper stocks the cost,
When I have journeyed on.

PA7 WVAS ON FULL PAY
His Ncrth Pole Orders Since 1831
Was to "Make Observations"
Washington, Sept. 18.-In response
to inquiries that have been pouring
in upon the navy department, Act-g,
Secretary Winthrop made public 'o-
day all the orders that have been is
sued to Robert E. Peary since he be-
came a. civil engineer in the navy in
October, in 1881. There appears to
have been much popular curiosity as
to whether Mr. Peary was detailed to
search for the north pole and whethi
er he has drawn pay during the years
that he has been engaged in the task.
The orders show that eight "ex-
tendedl leaves of absence" have be-'t
given Mr. Peary to "go to the pole.'
Only one of the eight orders directs
him to go "without pay." The orders
appear to show that on all of thf
trips except one the explorer ha.i
drawn the salary of his relative rank
as commander in the navy on leave.
The last of the orders gives him
a leave of absence from April 9, 1907,
for three years to go abroad. But
this was modified on July 2. 1908, by
a revocation of the unexpired leav-
and an assignment to the duty of maK-
ing observations in Grant Land an.i
Greenland under the Coast and Geo-
Under the amended orders Mr.
Peary has been entitled to draw full
pay of $4500 a year during the last
fourteen months of his absence.

What mikes it mighty to defy

Not, gold, but only men can make
A people great and strong; |

Stand fast and suffer long.
Brave men. who work while others
Who dare while others fly-
They build a nation's pillars deep
And lift them to the sky.

THE 4T. AUGUSTINE RECORD
WANTS TO KNOW WHO iS A
It is to be-hoped that the people of
America are now capable of render-
ing a plain verdict on the case as
submitted: Was Harriman an undesir-
able citizen? He was great and he
was American; his ambition and his
activities belong to our country be-
cause they could not have been fos-
tered and carried to maturity in any
other country on earth. Now it is be-
cause we produce such men as Mr.
Harriman that we succeed or do we
fail in much because such men as
Harriman constantly dominate the
situation in one form or another? He
was no saint-he was no monster-he
was American from center to circum-
ference. Already able men have un-
dertaken the task of "continuing hi'
policies;" if those policies affect the
public injuriously or if they are con-
trary to law the opportunity is of-
fered and the challenge thrown out.
Mr. Harriman controlled a very large
share of the railroad world in this
country-five men will try to work In
unison that the interests may be kept
together; would it be better if the 3r-
ganization had never been accom-
plished? Would it be better to break
up the combination as soon as th"
hand that protected it has been with-
drawn? Mr. Harriman was the son of
a clergyman. We take it for granted
that he was trained in the way he
should go. While still very young ne
had earned what might have been
considered a fortune-was the money
tainted because it came from specula-
tion in Wall Street? He took himself
and money into the railroads and the
rest in history; with such training ani
in such a country do we evolve rob-
bers and bandits "as certainly as the
old barons of the middle ages were
bandits?" It is well that we know the
truth on this point. If Harriman were
an "undesirable citizen" we should
see to it that other Harrimans hava
not the same field of action when
they are evolved and come forth to
claim their own.
Under some late definition, who is
a desirable citizen? Is that American
the foremost of his kind who labors
diligently to pay duties to go into the
pockets of other men, who grow chil-
dren to follow the same path in their
turn and vote the republican ticket
exactly as the boss directs? "My fu-
ture lies with the organization," said
Roosevelt, and be never hesitated to
stand with it, right or wrong.-St. Au-
Compiler of New City Directory Gives

Mr. Burtz, in order to satisfy the
public as to the exact population of
the city, took the trouble to compile
an actual census, which is not cus-
tomary with a directory publisher,
only a standard rule of tabulation be-
ing used; but the question of the
number of people here-actual resi-
dents-was so diversified, for this rea-
son the actual census was recorded.
The publisher finds a bona fide pop-
ulation of 5127, which Is divided ns
follows: White. 2785; colored, 2342.
This census is not padded, but actual,
and the people of Orlando may bank
on its correctness.
Mr. Burtz expected to find between
5600 and 6000 people here, but his
judgment was formed when engaged
in taking the census in the western
section-that is, the territory west of
Orange avenue. That section proved
quite prolific, but it was the eastern
section which caused the estimate to
fall short. Residents of the eastern
section live at a greater distanrn
apart, and as a rule the number in
each family is not so great.-Orlando
PLAIN TALK FROM A PRETTY
They were casting for trout in the

"Don't you know." he drawled, try-

"there are some wonderful queer fisn

see a goosefish?"
And the pretty girl smiled.
"Yes, indeed, Freddy," she chirped..
"I am watching a goose fish now."-

THE MAN OF THE FUTURE
A special to the New York Herald
says that Mrs. Anna Besant, high
priestess of the theosophist cult, has
cast her astral spirit four hundred
years into the future and drawn a
picture of the man of that time.
She says he will be more beautiful
than the handsomest man now living.
He will be between six and seven
feet tall, or taller, and every muscle
and every bone will be perfect in
conformation. All his senses will be
keener than those of the best devel-
oped man of today.
He will have the power of clair-
voyance; will be able to see and con-
verse with the spirits of other worlds;
will be able to solve the deepest prob-
lems of statecraft, of science or of
everyday life with a celerity that
would seem to us marvelous.
The child of 2309 will be born, she
says, knowing by instinct what is now
known only after hard years of study.
He will telephone or telegraph his
thoughts for long distances without
the intervention of electrical instru-
ments, while his astral body will be
able to move instantly through the
propulsion of his will long distances
and perform most of the function s
which can now be performed only by
our physical bodies.
Another storm that gathered off the
coast of Florida and more than onc<
threatened it with fury, changed its
course, veered to the left of us ansi
finally struck with terrific force many
of the towns in Mississippi and Ala-
bama, and as far west as Arkansas.
The town of Natchez, Miss., contain-
ing a population of fifteen thousand
souls, seems to have suffered the se-
verest. It is said that half the town
was wiped out, first by the flood andl
afterwards by fire, that quickly play-
ed hand-maiden to the floods. It carv-
ed a wide pathway of destruction andi
desolation. Its fury was the worst
that has been witnessed in many
years, and the damage it did is put
down as enormous.
Florida has been fortunate in that
it has not had a destructive storm in
some years and it has been upwards
of twenty years since this particular

Pellagra is still exciting more or
less attention; some physicians hold-
ing that it is a new disease, others
that it is an old disease, but newly
recognized, while yet others say that
it is caused by a germ, and still oth-
ers contend that no trace of a germ
can be discovered. Dr. J. W. Bat-
cock of the state hospital for the "n-
sane at Columbia, S. C., continues to
hold to the theory that the disease is
caused from musty meal, or corn
ruined in the curing, yet there was
a woman in Atlanta recently who hat
a well developed case of pellagra who
declared that she had never eaten
corn bread in her life.
The Columbia correspondent of the
Charleston (S. C.) News and Courier
recently interviewed Dr. Babcock on
the new disease, and the following is
what this eminent authority says:
"The press is now emphasizing the
fact that pellagra is a new diseas-,
but thle South Carolina and Georgia
asylums have recogn-zed the disease
in their institution. for about thir!.-
years. At Morgantown, N. C.. pella-
gra has been known for about 22
years. It is not a new disease. but ai
newly recognized disease. The atten-
tion of the public has been direct(dI
to it. What was formerly known -1i
other diseases by various names is
now known as pellagra by phrysician-;.
"The president of the Italian na-
tional board of health told me about
one year ago that while we may di;-
pute about which of the moulds cause
the disease, it is associated with spoil-
ed corn. Pellagra has been studied in
Italy for 170 years, and that corn meal
is 'incriminating' admits of no douhb,.
that is, provided the meal is damaged.
There are many thousand cases of
pellagra in Italy, and the doctors
there have made exhaustive study of
"Many authorities claim to isolat.-
the germs either from moulds or bac-
teria, but no agreement as to the
cause of pellagra has been reached.
"Iombroso, the greatest of the au-
thorities in Italy, says that the di.;-
ease is due to toxyne produced frovmi
"Censi says it is due to two fornr.-
of moulds, aspergillus and penicil-
lium. Another Italian au:hority-Tiz-
onno-says it is due to a bacteri-i.
The mould is a fungus."
Dr. Babcoek inclines to the the.or;y
of Dr Lombroso that the disease is
caused l roui a mould. and that da!n:-
as el corn meal is incr'imina:ing.

FLORIDA CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR
A cordial message has come from
Mrs. Mary L. Bradt. of the Sunshine-
Society work in Florida, who is now
located at 123 East 74th street, New
York. While far away, her thoughts
are lovingly spent in her chosen wo-k
of sunshine making in our state. Snte
has sent us a manual of the Interna-
tional Sunshine Society, which wo,
were glad to get. Mrs. Bradt's bir'h-
day. also that of several of her family
comes in October, and she will ob-
serve the days by sending out nvm,
greeting cards to those whose birth-
(lays come that month. How m-"'i"
more unselfish this plan seems tha.i
that of some who only wonder. "'ho'v
many presents will I get?"
Our last mnbssage from Mrs. Ali,:e-
Reed and her son, Herbert, was that
their lovely visit in the north would
soon be over and their faces turn to-
ward South Lake Weir. This la-t
metnioned reminder showed on a
post card a picture of a gypsy camp at
Lewiston, Maine. We have man..
sights to be portrayed h"re. but v'N'y

Kissimmee societies have recently

THE PERRY HERALD AND THE
The Starke Telegraph is vainly try-
ing to wiggle out of its uncalled-for
and malicious fling at Broward re-
garding the state printing contract.
Instead of manfully admitting its er-
ror and apoligizing, it seeks a flaw in
the Herald's comment on the original
article. If the Telegraph, wants to do
the right thing let it withdraw and
admit that there is no truth in the
statement that "To nsure the publica-
tion of a paper at Tallahassee that
would swear by him. a deposit of $12,-
000 was required of a printer bidding
on the state printing. This to shut
out competition and insure delivery
of the printing at exhorbitant prices
to the publisher of the Broward pa-
per." The Telegraph well knows
there is no truth in the above state-
ment and that it is ridiculous on its
face. Why would a deposit of $12,000
assure the printing contract to a
Broward supporter any more than it
would any other man with $12,000?
Answer that. please AMr. Telegraph.
The fact is. that the Telegraph, andl
a few more papers, are always seelk-
ing something to fling at Broward,
and care little whether the fling has
truth or reason to it, trusting that it
will reach some voter who will ne
taken in and deceived.-Perry Herald.

In connection with the late disc's-
sion of the cost of being elected to
the senate it is apropos to consider
the cost of holding the office in view
of the statements made by Mr. La-
mar. His experience cannot be taken
ts exemplary of the average repre-
sentative, though it may be true of a
majority of the senators. The statr'-
ment was made some time ago by a
Washington correspondent that few
of the senators were poor men; that
the greater number were wealthy and
that the compensations they get f.r
their services is merely incident.
and has only a subsidiary attraction to
the glamor and glory of holding a sea!
in the august assembly. The house
is as a matter of course a more de1m-n
ocratic body in the popular sense.
There may be a few wealthy house
members, like Mr. Lamar. who can -if-
ford to spend more than their salar-
ies allow them for living at the capi-
tal, but this is certainly not the rule.
And it may be seriously doubted if
the possession of this surplus and the
ability to live in better style than
their fellow members hears with it
any considerable weight of influence
for the benefit of the districts they ar-'
elected to serve.
Having had the experience of living
in Washington with its attendant ex-
pense, which would he ,disastrous 'o
a modest fortune in a short time, it
may be wondered that Mr. Lamar wa;
so eager to try it again The lure oif
the life at the nation's capital must ot
a surety he such that it is difficult to
shake. After a taste of it a congress-
man always wants more.-Miami .M-

sion September 21, 1909. President
Mefert called the meeting to order
and the following members were pres-
ent: L. W. Duval, E. T. Helvenston,
H. C. Jones, D. E. Mclver, T. B. Sny-
der and H. D. Stokes.
Minutes of last regular meeting
read and approved.
T. E. Bridges appeared in behalf of
the S. A. Rawls Co., stating that the
privilege of putting convicts in the
city jail had been withdrawn from
the said company on account of non-
compliance with contract, and stating
that the said company had always
paid all demands made on them for
keeping the said jail in a good sani-
tary condition in accordance witi
their agreement, and requested fur-
ther consideration in the matter. Re-
ferred to police committee with pov.'-
er to act.
J. H. Taylor appeared before the
council calling attention to the inade-
quate supply of water and showing
the necessity of placing fire hydrants
between Masters' warehouse an-i
Meffert & Taylor's. and requested
that a hydrant be placed 300 feet
north of the present hydrant on east
side of Osceola street. Granted.
Message from Mayor Robertson rel-
ative to sidewalks, water, lights, etc..
read and discussed.
On motion of Councilman Jones it
was ordered that one 100-c. p. light be
placed on the street near the corner
of M. C. Falana's store.
The E. L. committee was requested
to investigate and report back to the
council places where they thought
would be most needed to place nine
100-c. p. lights in the city; also to loik
into the placing of arc lights and re-
port whether or not there were any
that might be placed to better advan-
It was moved by Mr. Duval. and ca"-
ried, that the city attorney act with
the street committee for the enforce-
ment of the sidewalk ordinance of the
city of Ocala. It was the sense of th,.
council that if the city could have
the sidewalks put down by responmi-
ble parties according to the paving
ordinance and satisfy the said parties
for paving by transferring the paving
certificates to the parties doing the
work it would be to the best interest
of the city to do so.
Communication from Charles Pey-
ser relative to damage sustained to
his buggy by horse stepping inlo dra'.n
pipe. was referred to the street com-.

the Eureka Fire Hose Company an I

DIVORCE, FAIRLY OBTAINED, IS
Judge Henry B. Brown, former su-
preme court justice, says:
"There is no question connected
with the administration of the laws so
fertile of litigation and so exacting
of public attention as divorces. Thous-
ands of decided cases have turn>?-l
upon their validity.
"The clergy have made them a spi-
cialty and have generally been ouc-
spoken in denunciation of the ac-
knowledged evils and discreely silent
in respect to their utility, ignoring the
distinction between the causes for
which they may be granted and the
procedure by which they are obtain-
"That separation of church ani
state which is a cardinal principle of
American jurisprudence is nowhere
more applicable than in that which
concerns the marriage relation.
"It is not perceived why the part-
nership created by marriage should
so far differ from a commercial part-
nership that one may be dissolved at
pleasure while the other is absolutely
"A proper regard for the interests
of the state, as well as the preserva-
tion of domestic happiness would
seem to require that when the whole
object of the matrimonial compact
had been defeated by the habitual,
persistent and uncontrollable conduct
of either party, and that relation
which should represent the acme of
human happiness is made to stand for
all that is most repugnant to our de-
sires and anticipations, a severance
of the ties should be permitted.
"I cannot recall a divorce fairly ob-
tained without fraud and upon due
and personal notice to the other side,

welfare of the parties and prove a

AS TO THE HIRING OF
The Duty of County Commissioners
Regarding the Prisoners When
They Are Released
Tallahessee, Fla., Sept. 20.-Gov-
ernor Albert W. Gilchrist has issued
the following to the various boards of
county commissioners of Florida:
To the Boards of County Commission-
ers of the Several Counties of Flor-
Gentlemen-For your information I
herewith enclose a printed copy of
chapter 5963, acts of 1909, being "An
act to amend section 4109 of the gen-
eral statutes of the state of Florida,
relating to labor of county convicts,
as amended by chapter 5705, acts ef
1907," and respectfully invite your ai-
tention to the following provision of
chapter 5963, with which your board
should comply without delay:
"It shall be the duty of all boards
of county commissioners hiring o'ut
convicts for work to make provis!cn
for each convict so leased or hired
out to receive, upon being discharged,
transportation back to the place from
which he was sentences, or its equiv-
alent in money for such purpose, and,
in addition, the sum of three dollars
($3.00) when his sentence is for a less
period than four months, and for all
prisoners whose term of sentence
shall be more than four months the
sum of five dollars ($5.00), the same
to be paid out of the hire deriveJ
from the lease of said convicts.
"And when the county commission-
ers work their prisoners on the public
works of the county the same
amounts shall be paid to the prison-
ers discharged from said works out
of the fine and forfeiture fund of the
county, the same as is above provi.I-
ed when the convicts are leased.

Life is short for all of us; it w!'!i be
