When the council meets tonight, a

mayor has, returned the bond ordi ordinance
nance ordinance with bis veto atached to it.
For this action, the mayor gives a
number of reasons, of which the fol following
lowing following are -the most important:
First, on account of the depression
caused -by the -war, 'he does not think
this an auspicious time for a bond
Second, all purposes for which
bonds are to be issued are bunched.
A man in voting, must vote for or
against, all the items. The mayor
thinks the different purposes should
be distinguished, so the voter could
express his choice.
(He doubts that the plan of the
council for establishing the municipal
ice factory is legal.
For the same reasons, or some of
them, he vetoes the smaller 'bond

Editor Star: Please allow me
space in your valuable paper to reply
to 'Mr. J. D. Rooney's article of last
week, relative to the demonstration
work in '.Marion county. 'Mr. Rooney
is in a position to see and appreciate
what the demonstration agent is do doing
ing doing and how the various sections of
the county appreciate the work. The
demonstrations do not consist only in
preparing your land more thorough thoroughly
ly thoroughly and putting tin a lot of humus to
grow only corn and cotton, but it
covers every phase of farming, not
only growing and marketing of crops.
It stands out as a tmonument of in intelligence,
telligence, intelligence, ever ready and willing to
help any farmer In any way for the
betterment of his condition, morally,
sooiallyand financially. Its scope of
usefulness is unlimited, if the far farmer
mer farmer will only take advantage of the
opportunity, offered. These, instruc instructions
tions instructions sent out by the department are
concrete facts, and practical meth methods,
ods, methods, not theoretical as some are often
here. A demonstration agent is only
a missionary to carry the message
from the department of agriculture
direct to the farmer; to come face
to 'face with the people so If any
doubt as to how these instructions
were obtained, he can fully explain.
On 5S7 acres In 'Marion county in
1913 worked, under the instructions
of the department of agriculture
there "was an increase of 16 ibusheJs
per acre over the same number of
acres on similar land with the same
weather conditions under the old
method of cultivation .which you can
readily see amounts to 9392 bushels
of corn alone, saying nothing of 200
co-operators ,who doubtless 'have
made a similair showing, whom we
do not get a report from. I want to
voice 'Mr. Rooney's sentiments. In
some ways the demonstration agents
do not get the co-operation that they
9hould. Possibly this is not done in intentionally,
tentionally, intentionally, 'but iby mere carelessness.
To prove my assertion, our Fair As Association
sociation Association has always overlooked the
importance of our boys corn, and girls
tomato, club work by not offering
some prizes for-each of these clubs.
I will admit the 'boys and girls have
always been paid prizes, but the
money practically was given by Mr.
Z. C. Chamblis3, Dr." J. C. Boozer and
Mr. Ed. Carmichael. I don't want it
understood that I am kicking but am
merely mentioning these facts.
When -Alachua county decided to
have a fair, the first thing they con considered
sidered considered was awarding prizes to the
Boys' Corn Club and the Gilrs To Tomato
mato Tomato Club. Not only do they give
fifty dollars !n prizes to the fcoys, but
each boy who exhibits ten ears of
corn at the air receives an Ingersol
watch free. The same amount of
money will be given to the girls of
the tomato club. Hamilton County
Fair has put up two hundred dollars
for premiums for the Boys Corn Club
work. '.Mr. Editor I simply refer to!
these matters that all may guard
against them in the future and not
let the Marion County Fair he behind
in anything, but let's -be up and doing
and show our colors. Marion has the
best fair and why not make every everything
thing everything pertaining to it the best. We
can if we will and we will.

main in San Francisco. Some unknown
men who wanted to make trouble set
off a chemical preparation O the gas
main, with the result that in a few
seconds a hole had been melted in the
main, the gas poured out and a great
flame shot twenty-five feet in the air.
It was then after midnight, and it was
very inadvisable to shut the big main
off, so it was decided to make an at attempt
tempt attempt to stop the leak without shutting
off the gas.
An oil well trick was used. An iron
pipe sir inches in diameter and twenty
feet long was stood on end beside the
gas main and then by careful manipu manipulation
lation manipulation placed directly over the leak.
This sent the leaking gas shooting
through, the pipe and flaming out at the
top twenty feet in the air. Some gas
leaked out at the bottom of the pipe,
but this was easily stopped, so the only
flame was that at the top of the pipe.
Ropes had been attached to the pipe,
and finally at a given signal the ropes
were yanked and the pipe was thrown
many feet nway from the gas main.
The pipe carried the flame with it The
leaking gas then shot directly into the
air from the main, but as there was
no flame near it did not burn. It was
then a comparatively simple task to
plug the hole until permanent repairs
could be made.
The other, scheme was to get to the
top of a high chimney without using
scaffolding or other expensive methods.
The chimney rose two hundred feet be beside
side beside a Missouri power plant, and it was
proposed to attach a sign running up
and down its side. A little parachute
with a stout cord attached was pushed
into the chimney at the bottom, the
flue gases carried it to the top and
then out into the air. It fell on one
side, dragging the cord after it Then
by means of the cord a, rope was pass passed
ed passed up outside of the chimney and down
the inside and the chimney top was
accessible. Saturday Evening Post

with him at the time volunteered to go
and buy one, only to find that hone of

Misplaced or Wrong Vowels Lead to
. Queer Translations.
A volume could be filled with amus amusing
ing amusing stories of shorthand mistakes, the
greater number of them due to mis mistaken
taken mistaken vowels. For instance, 'This day
Is big with fate" was transcribed
"This day Is big with fat." while "Do
not Indulge In spite" came out "Do
not indulge in spit," and "A house of
many gables" was transcribed Into "A
house of many gabbles."
The use of the wrong vowel may
have the most amuslpg-result, as In
the phrase "Man;- know thyrclf," which
was once converted In the report of a
sermon Into "Man, gnaw thyself.' To
misplace a vowel Is In shorthand the
