The Ocala Star takes the surprising

method of taking life has been indulg indulged
ed indulged in by those fully familar with the
handling of firearms. It is the boy
who has been permitted to use a gun
or a pistol, who thinks it is smart to
"show off" among his playmates and
who points the deadly weapon with
fatal effect. The boy who has never
been permitted to handle a gun is
afraid of it and doesn't want one
near him. He never shoots any one.
No person under eighteen years
should be allowed to own or have in
his possession or use a firearm of any

The Star would not have advised
teaching boys to handle guns if it had
not had plenty of experience to back
its advice. The writer was brought
tip in a section where boys were
taught to shoot about the same time
they were taught to read. A boy of
16 who couldn't handle a gun as well
as a man was a rarity. And the first
thing such boys were taught wa's that
they were never to let the muzzle of a
gain point at themselves or anybody
The writer has never known an"

accidentMo happen at the hands of a
boy or man who was early .taught to
handle a gun. He has never, known
such a one to foolishly point a gun
or pistol at somebody else.
Almost every boy has a natural
desire, to handle guns and pistols. If
he can't gratify his desire openly, he
will do it stealthily whenever he has
a chance.
But if a boy 4s early taught to
handle firearms, they will not be a
novelty to him. He will handle them
not with carelessness but with cer cer-tainty;
tainty; cer-tainty; even tho the carelessness of
skill is much less dangerous with a
gun than the awkwardness of unac-quaintance.

Thanksgiving Frolic.
? A plan for a frolic on Thanksgiving
ere is a turkey party. Begin the fun
with a turkey search, which can be very j
easily arranged and requires no prep preparation
aration preparation but a simple prizp. for which
one of the pasteboard Kblers filled
with candy which all the shops have
in stock at this time of year will be
just tfte thing. 1
Cut a quantity of pasteboard into
small tickets or slips or use ordinary
wrapping or pad paper in the same
way. On each slip write one of the
letters which go to make up the wonS
"turkey." having each slip fit into a
set completing the word. Fold the
slips, and. after seating all the players
around a table, play the game after
the rules of "authors," the end and
aim of each player being to complete
the word "turkey" as often as possi possible.
ble. possible. To begin the game deal an equal
number of slips to each person and the
same to the pool. If any player with
the slips dealt to him can complete the
word "turkey" he is privileged to place
the letters lacking on the table in front
of him. Each set completing the word
counts points toward the game.
When all have matched and discard
ed the matching letters, as described,
each, in turn, beginning with the play player
er player at the left of the dealer, draws from
the pool and matches in turn. When j
the pool is exhausted the players have j
the privilege or asting eacn otner tor
the letters they desire, each asking iu
turn and for but one letter at a time
If the person who is asked for a cer
tain letter is found with it in his hand
he is required by the rules of the game
to give it up, even though necessary
for a word he is building at the time
The game ends when ull the players
are out of slips and is won by the per
son who ofienest completes the term
A Simpler Game.
The same game played with ticket ticket-or
or ticket-or paper slips can be played by nidiug

game the rule is that each slip must be
sought in : the sequence In which it

adds to the excitement of the turkej

It is indeed a long cry from that first
day of Thanksgiving as spent by the

In large cities there is the unfortu-,

Thanksgiving dinners in hotels. In Indeed,

crowd the most luxurious restaurants

to permeate our festival.

gaze never left her face "till I j see

his eyes. The pupils were like pin
points in his head." He paused and
added: 1 got the bottle of whisky m
his pack. Itll go in as evidence."
v 'That Atterson was drugged and the I
bank property stole from him. You
see' continued Joe, "this robbery
wasn't altogether Atterson's own idea."
-Ahr 7 : .. r;
'lXo. I guess he had the first notion
of It when be was on his vacation six
weeks back. He wnn iu love with a
wonderful handsome girl. Blue eyes
she had and bfack hair, and her teeth
was as good as yonrs.' 7 SLs pretended
to be In love with him. bat all along
she was in love v.itn well, 1 can't
say who she was in love with herself
likely Anyway, I expect she used all
her influence to make Atterson rob the
bank, and then light out for the woods
with the stuffs He does all she wants.
pn his way to the woods she meets
him -with a pack of food and neces
saries. In that pack was a bottle of
drugged whisky. She asks him where
he's going to camp that night, he sus
pects nothing and tells her, ) and o2T
she goes in a canoe up Red river till
she comes to opposite where he's lyin;
drugged. She lands and robs him, but
she don't want, him to know who done
that, so she plays an old game to con
real her ; tracks. She's a rare active
young woman, so she carries out her
plan gets back to her canoe and home
to Lendevllle. Need I tell any more
about her?"
During Joe's story Phedre's color had
slowly died away.
'"You are very clever!". she said bit
terly. "But why should you tell me
ail this?'
"Because I'm going to advise you to
hand over the $100,000 you took from
Atterson. I'm in this case for the'
bank." .7; ; ',:, -7-; :
"l?" she exclaimed violently. "Do
you dare to say, that I had anything
whatever to do with this robbery, that
4 have the S100.000? Bah! I know
nothing about it. How should I ?"
7 Joe shrugged his shoulders. "Then
I beir your pardon; liss Pointarre, and
1 say good bye. I must go and. make
my report to the police and let them
act their own way." He turned, but
before he bad gone more than a step
or two she called to him.
"There is one point you have missed
for all your cleverness she said
rSuppose what you- have said is true,
may it hot be that the girl who robbed
Atterson took the money Just to return
it to the bank?"
"Don't seem to be that way, for she
has just denied all knowledge of the

make shift to get every cent back safe
for them if they'd agree not to prose

So you are man enough not to wish
to see me in trouble?"
November looked at her. "I wa3 sure
not thinking of you at all, he said
simply, "but of Bank Clerk Atterson,
who's lost the girl he robbed for and
ruined himself for. I'd hate to see
that chap overpuhished with a dose of
jail too. But the bank people only
wants their money, and I guess if they
get that they'll be apt to. think the
less about the robbery the better. I
If you take my advice why, now's the
time to see old McAndrew. You see.
Miss Pointarre, I've got the cinch on
you. '
She stood still for awhile. "I'll ecs
old man McAndrew,' she cried sud
denly. "I'll lead. It's near enough
this way."
Joe turned after her, and I followed.
Without arousing McAndrew's sus
picions, Joe satisfied the girl as to his
Before dark she met us again.
"Therel" she said, thrusting a packet
into Joefs hand. "But look out, for
yourself! Atterson isn't the only man
who'd break the law for love of me.
Think of that at night in the lonely
I saw-her sharp white teeth grind
together as the words came from be between
tween between them.
s "My!" ejaculated November, looking
after her receding figure, "she's a bad
loserain't she, Mr. Quaritch?"
We, went ba,ck into Quebec and Joe
made over to the bank the amount'of
their loss as soon as Harris, the man manager,
ager, manager, agreed (rather against- his will)
that no questions should be asked nor
nction taken.
j The same evening I, not being under
the same embargo regarding questions,
inquired from Joe how in the world
the fair Phedre covered her tracks'
from the canoe to whero Atterson was
"That was simple for an active girl.
She walked ashore along the paddle,
and after her return to the canoe threw
water "upon the mark it made in the
mud. Didn't you notice how faint it
' "But when !she got on shore how
did she hide her trail then?"
"It's not a new trick. She took a
couple of short logs with her in the
canoe. First she'd put one down and
step onto it. then she'd put the other
one farther up- and step onto that.
Next she'd lift the cue behind, and co
on. Why did she do that? Well, 1
reckon she thought the trick good
enough to blind Atterson. If he'd
found a woman's tracks after being
robbed he'd hive suspected.'.:
"But. you said before we left Atter Atter-eon's
eon's Atter-eon's camp that whoever robbed him
was middlo height, a light weight and
bad black hair.".
"Well, hadn't she? Light weight be because
cause because the logs wasn't much drove Into
the ground, not tall since the marks of
them was so close together.'
"But the black hair?"
Joe laughed. "That was the surest
thing of the lot and put me wise to it
and Phedre at the start. Twisted up
in the buckle of the pack she gave
Atterson I found several strands of
splendid black hair. She must 'a
caught her hair in the buckles while
carrying It' ;
"But, Joe, you also raid at Red river
that the person who robbed Atterson
was not more than twenty-five years
oldr r
"Well, the hair proved It was a wom woman,
an, woman, and what but being in love with
her face would make a slap up bank
clerk like Atterson have any truck with
a settler's girl? And' them kind are
early ripe and go off their looks at
twenty-five. I guess, Mr. Quaritch, her
age was a pretty safe shot.
