What Causes Grub Worms.
Entomologists or bug hunters of
northern Ohio and Indiana have
warned farmers against grub worms,
saying that a certain species of a bug
that flies in the air is distributing its
eggs on the ground that are trans
formed Into the grub before coming
back to its original form and during
that period as a grub worm is when
its-ravages are the greatest on grow
ing crops, more especially growing
corn, which the worm eats when it
first starts growing. It is suggested
that fall plowing for corn is best and
if grubs are noticeable in wheat ground
that a greater amount of seed should
be sown so that the worms can have
a wider range and not destroy the
whole crop. It is a fixed fact, as every
farmer knows by experience, that dur
ing certain years there Is an exces
sive number of this species of grub
and If there is any rule laid down to
avoid their ravages on crops it will be
a great advantage to the farming com
munity. Goshen News-Times.

Mri C. H. Spencer, says the Lake Lakeland
land Lakeland Telegram, writes an interesting
and suggestive letter to the Tampa
Times in which he strongly urges that1
the people be permitted to vote on the
question of the division : of Florida
into two states. The subject has been
often discussed, but the public
doesn't seem to rise to il with any
enthusiasm. But time and persist persistence
ence persistence may force the issue. Mr. Spen Spencer
cer Spencer says, among other things, the fol following,
lowing, following, which has an appetizing
flavor: "The dividing line from Leon
to St. Johns counties is appropriate
and such division would put Tallahas Tallahassee
see Tallahassee about the center of the old state
and this city or Lakeland should be
the capital of the new state of South
Florida, and we would have a capital
almost within our midst, state offi officers
cers officers familiar with our needs, and, by
the way, two democratic senators to
increase our strength in Congress."
Mr. Spencer was in Ocala last year,
and while here gave his views most
logically as to why there is a natural
division line between this part of
Florida and that portion further
north and south. The Star, however,
doesn't feel like Florida can spare any
part of herself. We have an affection
for it all even for Baldwin.
IS THIS ALSO OBLIQUE?

contrary to the laws of the nation or
the dictates of common sense. :

The Star wants to see the men of

will be subject to the will and, power
of other people; and any man who has

The American nation was built and
its liberties won by men who had
guns and knew how to use them. They
taught their sons how to use guns as
a matter of course. They had mmong
them some fools and some criminals,
and they had accidents, same as we
do now; but these were little things
compared with the great principle
they gave us that "the right of the
people to keep and bear arms shall
not be infringed."
Do you know why they wrote this
principle into our constitution ? Be Because

nation which had given up its arms to

isn't necessary. ; More than one
southern woman owes her life and
more than life to the fact that she
had a gun and knew how to use it.
And there are many southern homes

Human nature is always seeking

and if there were none of the pernic pernicious
ious pernicious instruments nobody would be
held up or murdered, or there never
would be any accidents.
The pistol is mixed up in a lot of

the law can't keep a policeman on
each side of a city block, or a con
stable on every furlong of a country

rapists do not pick out the vicinity of
officers of the law to commit their
crimes; therefore, as. long as ther?

REAL "DOGS OF WAR."
Thty Used to Wear Coats of Mail and
Dogs of war Is a phrase which
once meant a thing as real as the war
horse. Dogs have played their part In
battles and campaigns, and in the old
wars between England and Scotland
dogs were used by both combatants
for pursuing and killing fugitives aft
er a defeat
It is releated that Wallace and Bruce
each had close escapes from capture
by English bloodhounds. Bruce Is said
to have thrown the English dog off the
scent by the now well known ex pedi
lent of wading up a stream far enough
to baffle his pursuers, and Wallace
evaded the bounds by having recourse
to a trick more or less common in those
bloody times of killing a follower and
leaving the body in the dogs path for
them to come upon. The dogs ending
a body believed that their task was
done and discontinued the hunt-
In the history of the wars of the
