Northern France, Jan.. 0. It was

scene is now described in detail by
Senor Roberto Payro. The consul in
question was M. Remy Himmer,
whose family was of German origin,
it is true, but long settled in Bel Belgium,

factory at Dinant.
When the Germans entered the
town they took a large number of old
men as prisioners, and compelled
them to wralk through the streets with
their hands up, and every now and
then the soldiers would fire shots to
terrify the inhabitants. They smash smashed

prisoners had to lie down and throw
their hands up. Then they separated
the men from the woman, and, as
there were about fifty men, these
were made to stand up against a
wall where they were to be shot.
A number of soldiers were order ordered

were taking aim and about to fire,
when a counter order was given. The

deadly instruments. Women and
children were screaming as they saw
their husbands and fathers shot down
and a few who tried to escape were
shot down by the soldiers. Among
the victims on that day was the Ar Argentine

M. Himmer had, with his wife, his

families, taken refuge in his factory.
At five o'clock in the afternoon, not
knowing yet, what was the outcome
of the battle, they came out with a

LET THE DARKEYS PLAY
The numerous tributes : in the state
press to General Long show how
widely known and much esteemed
wasthat' grand old man of Marion.
General Long was' once a power in
the public affairs of Florida. During
the latter years of his life, he had
lived so quietly at his home that the
younger generation had become ob oblivious

him to mind to all who were familiar

W. W. Douglass, who has been
with the Jacksonville Metropolis
ever since it started, in 1887, and who
has; attained the ripe old age of 77
years, has retired. Mr. Douglass
went into the printing business in
Macon, Ga., before the war, but laid
down the composing stick to pick up
the musket and served in the Con Confederate
federate Confederate army through the four year3
of 'the war. He founded the Union,
now -the Times-Union, in Jackson Jacksonville,
ville, Jacksonville, and has been closely connected
with Florida journalism for forty
yeats. The Star hopes Mr. Douglass

A new generation is growing up
that knows not the armed citizen and,

all the money changing hands in a
game of "craps."

est honest to gamble for two or three dollars
by way of mental recreation than to
rob a chicken house or a cane patch.
We can't expect the darkeys to
spend the rainy days praying and
singing and preaching, or even in
reading Browning or Shakespeare,
nor can they sleep all the time; and,
'therefore, in view, of the fact that
an "idle mind is the devil's work
shop," we think that it should be
guarded against in the case of the
darkeys by permitting them to play
"skin" and shoot "craps" during
those hours when circumstances pre prevent
vent prevent them from working. In such
cases the officers of the law, we think,
would be justified in "seeing no evil,
hearing no evil."
We are moved to these remarks by
reading in the Ocala Star an. article
in which the officers are critized for
their diligence in searching for dar
key "crap" shooters,, arresting them
and bringing them into court where
they are fined heavily or sentenced
to do hard labor for a month or two.
The Star charges the officers with
discriminating against the darkeys
and in favor of white men who regu regularly
larly regularly gamble for much larger stakes.
We never hear of white men being
arrested for gambling, though there
is reason to believe that in every
town of the state there are at least
a few who are guilty.
The Star rightly argues that what
is "sauce for the goose should be
sauce for the gander,' to which we
will add that we think gambling by
white men is morally worse than
"crap" shooting by negroes.
Further the Star intimates that of official
ficial official persistence and diligence in ar arresting
resting arresting and prosecuting negro "crap"
shooters is prompted chiefly by a de
sire for the fees which the officers
get, more so than by a. sincere and
honest wish to uphold the laws. That
is, the arrests would not be made, if
the officers did not get pay for them.
We do not incline to this view,
though it is entertained by many peo
ple. We rather think that the offi officers
cers officers are over-zealous, and they find it
easier to catch darkeys than white
men. At any rate, we think they
would not be guilty of a serious of
fence, if in passing a negro cabin
wherein thev believed a erame of
"craps" was being played, they were
to close their eyes and ears. After
the game is over, the players will

Willis Moore, he admitted it, was as

he was in the exhibition from its prac practical

"Cotton gloves! Gentlemen's cotton

from within a booth.
Cameron would have gone on, but
his friend turned to the girl and he
could not do otherwise thap follow.

Cameron looked at them and then

and dropped the gloves on the floor.
Seeing that he was a fifth wheel
