Wants Government to Take the East
It will be recalled that Senator
Fletcher has long advocated the tak taking

the government, and he had the fol

bill in the commerce committee:.
"The secretary of war is authoriz authorized

certainty as yet that the rivers and

GREAT FUN AT GASPARILLA
A Railroad Man Describes" in Detail a
Mammoth Norfolk & Western
Speaking of locomotives that little
engine recently referred to in a com communication
munication communication from Richmond as being
the largest in the world looks like a
gasoline engine when compared with
the one owned by the Norfolk &
Western railway. The following de description
scription description of this N. & W. giant is fur furnished
nished furnished by a railroad man who knows
whereof he speaks and has made sev
eral trips on this real largest loco-'
motive in the world.
It has five acres of grate bars and
four acres of netting in the smoke
"box. It takes a man a day and a half
lip walk through one of its cylinders.
It has an elevator running up to the
headlight and it takes ten barrels of
oil to fill it. It takes two jnen forty forty-five
five forty-five minutes to light one signal light,
and it took fifteen carpenters nine
months to build her pilot. The rail railroad
road railroad has a steam shovel to give her
coal. The tender holds ninety-seven
carloads. Every time she exhausts,
it rains for thirty-five minutes, and
the people in Richmond raise umbrel- f
las. The engineer uses a searchlight
to look out for signals, and goes
blind after six months in the cab. It
takes two astronomers with powerful
telescopes to see her going. The pony
wheels are. the size of a monster
turn-table, and a section of the At Atlantic
lantic Atlantic cable is used for the bell-cord.
It takes forty-two hours for a spark
from her smoke-stack to fall, and it
is ameteor when it strikes the earth.
When the whistle blows, it causes an
epidemic of deafness in 4 Henrico
county and all the lights in Richmond
are extinguished. Monster trees fall
.when this engine passes on her way
to and from Richmond. She covers
the distance, 258 miles, in thirty min minutesmaking
utesmaking minutesmaking her tunnels as she goes.
She hauls 10,000 cars and the round roundhouse
house roundhouse forces at Lambert's Point hold
their annual picnic in her fire-box
every summer. When they wash her
boiler, it is necessary to drain the
Elizabeth river. She carries ,1860
pounds of steam pressure and 940
pounds of air. The throttle is pulled
by a stationary engine in the cab.
The lubricator holds 14 barrels of oil.
When she leaves the rails there is an
earthquake in Panama four days
later. This train goes goes so fast
when she stops she is still going ten
miles an hour: The glare of the
headlight can be seen through a hill
half a mile thick. When she takes
water she dried all the city lakes, and
lowers the level of the rivers several

Florida Will be Largely Represented
at the Live Tampa Festival
Tampa, Feb. 12. Reproducing
scenes enacted during the days of
piracy on the Spanish Main and Gulf
of Mexico, Tampa's citizens will stage
today and the three succeeding days,
the tenth annual Gasparilla carnival,
which derives its name from one of
the most daring and cruel high-sea
thieves that ever "scuttled a ship or
slit a throat."
Many noted Americans and foreign
diplomats have attended Tampa's
celebrations in the past, and a larger
number will accept the "Cigar City's"
hospitality this year as the tourist
season is at its height.
"Overboard with the men, but save
the women," was the command of
Gasparilla to his crew, and many a
maid and matron were held captive
by the band on Gasparilla Isle, upon
which the prosperous port of Boca
Grande is now located, while their
fathers, husbands arid brothers were
forced to "walk the plank" and find
rest in the coral beds beneath the wa waters.
Ten times has the ghost of Gaspar Gasparilla
illa Gasparilla and his phantom crew invaded
Tampa, but the fierce-visaged bri brigands
gands brigands of today come in the cause of
peace and pleasure, and not for blood
or gold. ;
Gasparilla was originally a member
of the crew of LaFitte, the French
terror, whose followers looted scores
of ships and then" sought refuge in the
Barataria, Atchalaf alya and Plaquo Plaquo-mino
mino Plaquo-mino bayous and other sequestered
spots on the Louisiana coast. A de determined
termined determined soul, Gasparilla would not
brook authority, and after a desper desperate

"chosen few," sailed from the pirate
nest on the Louisiana shore to the

at the peace of Arras, Philip of Bur Burgundy

This old town, which dates back to

there was a 'good market for them

the question is worth considering, it involves the origin and the
the development of individual ownership in land.
in the beginning of civilization no man owned any definite part of
the earth, nomadic tribes camped over particular sections of it;
homes and trading places were not fixed; land was too plentiful for
individuals to dispute over the occupancy of any particular spot.

MULE FOILS A HOG THIEF
Animal Ran Away and Thereby Gave
Away a Beautiful Bit of
No better example of "ways that are
dark and tricks that are vain" has
come to Ugfct recently than is afforded
in a dispatch from Bowling Green,
which tells of the arrest of one Robert
Fites, colored, charged with the theft
of a hog.
The details that are given show the
resourcefulness of a man when he is
"out of meat." Robert Fites, colored,
was in that condition last winter, and,
as the story goes, he knew of a farm
owned by a white man several miles
away -vhich was well stocked with
hogs. After sizing up the situation,
he decided it would be an easy matter
to get a fine young shoat if he had
any way of carrying it home after
killing it. This difficulty was solved
by borrowing a buggy and a mule
from a neighbor without the neigh neighbor's
bor's neighbor's knowledge or consent
Setting out in the middle of the
night, he drove to the place where
hogs were abundant, and succeeded
in catching and killing a hog. To con conceal
ceal conceal his prize he had carried along
a dress and bonnet belonging to his
wife. He dressed the stolen hog in
the apparel, set it upright in his bug buggy,
gy, buggy, and started home. It was day daylight
light daylight before he began the return trip,
and it happened that he met a few
early travelers along the road. At
such meetings he would address the
hog with admonition: "Sit up, old
lady; folks will think you're drunk."
But the best laid plans go wrong.
The subterfuge might have been suc successful
cessful successful if the mule had not become
frightened. The animal ran away,
and threw out both the driver and the
"old lady." A master stroke of, hog hog-stealing
stealing hog-stealing strategy had gone. amiss, and,
mindful of the fact that he who steals
and runs away may live to steal an another
other another .day, Robert Fites took to, the
woods. He stayed there for several
months, but when he came out the
grand jury had indijctcd him, and an
officer found him andt took him to jail.
There is no doubt that Robert Fites
is a genius in his way. He had a
great scheme.- The only weak thing
about it was that it failed to work.
War and the Samoan Islands.
A special link exists between Scot Scotland
land Scotland and the German Samoan islands,
which have just been occupied by a
British expeditionary force from New
Zealand. Most people know that Vall Vall-ima,
ima, Vall-ima, on the Island of Upolu, was the
home of Robert Louis Stevenson in the
closing years of his life. It is not so
generally known that since his death
the house and estate (some 300 acres)
have been acquired by the German
government, and adapted for use as a
residence for the governor of German
Samoa. Though the! British govern government
ment government renounced all rights oyer Sa Samoa
moa Samoa in 1899, the group has remained
an Important center for the activities
of the London Missionary society,
which has a large training college a
few miles from Apia. From this col college,
lege, college, which, is on a self-supporting
basis, native missionaries are sent to
all parts of the South seas. Until a
couple of years ago the English lan language
guage language was officially recognized in the
local courts, and although, as the re result
sult result of an agitation in Germany, only
the German language is now recog recognized,
nized, recognized, English is i still widely spoken,
so that the translation of the islands
from a German to a British colony
should be an easy process.

The home has been a success from

a friend of Mr. Ed Dreyfous, has sent
that gentleman- one of the most in ingenious
genious ingenious pieces of carving seen here in
some time. It is of a harbor contain containing
ing containing a full-rigged ship, all inclosed in
a quart bottle. The harbor is evident evidently
ly evidently of a port in Holland, with several
neat little houses, a church and a
windmill. The ship is a three master.
The sign, "Merry Christmas, 1914,"
is shown in one corner. It certainly
required great patience and skill to
cut and shape the figures, and nobody
can possibly understand how they
were put in the Jbottle.
