AN INQUIRY FROM MR. CUTHILL
To the Board of County Commission Commissioners,
ers, Commissioners, Gentlemen: j
I would like a little information on
a subject that has been worrying me
for some time. What was done with
that $3 special road tax I
summer? I haven't heard anybody else
complaining, so they mustl be satis satisfied,
fied, satisfied, or have received their money's
worth. I haven't; the only road I
have occasion to travel (the Martel-
Ocala road) hasn't had a lick of work
done on it in the past year and it was
a disgrace to the county ja. year ago
at that. Do I have to ay that $3
this year again? How did you make
ends meet on the road question be before
fore before you thought of sticking me for
that $3? I was in' ths county 28
years before you thought of me as a
special factor in road' building, and
then it was somebody else's road.
Can you tell, me how tin the name of
justice I should have' to pay $3 spe special
cial special road tax when my nearest neigh neighbor,
bor, neighbor, also a farmer, who is better able
to pay it. than I ami is exempt? Can
you tell me why atother neighbor, a
business man, shoujti be exempt? Can
you tell me why the colored man who
works for me (who has nothing in the
world to his name but a wife and six
children) should pay $3 special road

speaker emphasized the fact that the
work of the Jacksonville home was
purely undenominational while the
Baptist home at Arcadia and other
similar institutions were naturally
conducted under certain restrictions,
also that while other homes and in institutions
stitutions institutions had their ergular agents
out visiting churches, clubs and var various
ious various orders in the interest of their
work, it was very rarely that we had
the pleasure of listening to the active
working head of any of these bodies.
Mr. Fagg, who is a very earnest
and interesting speaker, said he felt
very highly complimented at the
courtesies shown him, that it was
somewhat a rare occasion when he
was invited to occupy the pulpit of a
church at its morning service as he
was not a preacher, except in the
spirit of Christ's love for little child children.

of the work they were doing -in the
Jacksonville home for the small chil children,

work among children somewhat older,
and the terrible conditions prevalent
at the only place in the state where
they were received as inmates.

Marianna institution and the picture
he drew of it was somewhat awful;
200 boys and girls, white and black,
all housed in one building without a
single effort being made either to re reform

from association and neglect every everything
thing everything tended to lead them into a life
of crime and. viciousness.
Since that time the girls have been
removed but as no other provision
was made for them by the state, their
condition was worse when turned J

prison. While boys who were let out
found it almost impossible to make
anything of themselves, as they r had
been taught nothing useful and there
was a stigma on their names that
they could not live down. He found 1
a boy of seven years sent up by some
judge on the east coast for vagrancy
and sentenced for 14 years. If he
served his time he would be turned
loose without any industrial training
or having learned one single thing by
which he could earn a living.
And while there was little or noth nothing

a clean social character about the

speaker told a very pathetic .story of

for the first time heard singing by a
lot of Sunday school children.
In speaking of jthe defective child children

girls who were feeble-minded, some

from epileptic fits, yet there was no
place in the state of Florida where
they could be cared for but the in-
