AN ABJECT APOLOGY
The Star is in trouble a great deal
of trouble. The other day it printed
the following paragraph:
"It is the prevailing opinion in the
state that the people of Welaka, who
allowed the negro guide of the Gard Gardner
ner Gardner brothers to slip thru their hands,
are a prize set of chumps."
' And now comes back at us the Pa Pa-latka
latka Pa-latka Post, in a column of double double-leaded
leaded double-leaded brevier, in which it says the
Stareither lacks facts or is trying to
slander Welaka, that Ocala is set
down in the middle of piny woods,
that the people of Welaka didn't know
Stover had been in town till next day,
that; Ocala didn't send out any search searching
ing searching parties, that the Star is a chump
anyhow, and should apologize to the
tig-hearted people of Welaka, who did
all in their power to apprehend the
criminal, find the missing men or
their bodies and help their distressed
relatives and friends. v
The Star will apologize; of course,
it will; it would do so at the Post's
bare request, let alone 'its command.
We confess we were mi sled by the re report
port report of people -who we supposed knew
more about it than we did; also, we
have a high regard for Welaka, which
we know is a town of mighty fine peo people,
ple, people, having-seen the whole population
at the wharf to meet the boat several
times. We also confess that Ocala is
set down in the middle of pinywoods,
but we have been misguided into be believing
lieving believing that was an advantage rather
than otherwise. As for Ocala not
sending' out any searching parties,
perhaps -we were derelict, but the
scene of the trouble being over fifty
miles off, in another county, we plead
as an excuse that we thought we had
better wait till we were called on. We
don't know what dreadful things were
charged up to Sheriff Galloway in
other papers, but the Star said that
as soon as he heard of the trouble he
telephoned to the sheriff of Putnam
county, and was informed by that of official
ficial official that he did not think there was
anything in the report. We have since
learned that the Marion county official
at once and thru the large number of
acquaintances .he hs in that region
found that the missing men had not
been seen at any of the Marion county
landings of the Oklawaha. I
The appearance of a rowboat with
or without a darkey in it would cause
much comment in Ocala, where there

Miss Madge Seaforth was playing
the piano In the parlor of her father's
house when all at once there came a
jangle. If one is playing 'The Old
Folks at Home" and absently wan wanders
ders wanders off into the air of "Yankee
Doodle," there's going to be a jangle.
And then you suddenly remember
that you borrowed Bessie Walter's
dream-book : a day or two ago, and
solemnly promised her that if the
reading of it caused you to dream you
would faithfully relate that dream to
the lender of the book without unnec unnecessary
essary unnecessary delay.
Well, Miss Madge had read the book
from cover to cover.. Much of Its con contents
tents contents had made her gasp and shiver.
She had dreamed of being chased by
snakes, wolves, brigands and runaway
locomotives. ;; : ,:.;;''' : T
They had run her through swamps,
thickets and meadows; they had run
her up hill and down; they ran her
through streets and alleys.
At last, after the chase had'eon had'eon-tinued
tinued had'eon-tinued for miles and the poor girl
had just jumped a fence nine feet
high without her French heels touch touching
ing touching a splinter, she caught the lower
limb of a tree and clambered up to
safety She went to the telephone to
relate the dream In full. Miss Madge
settled herself for a cozy chat when
the answer came back from the cen central

"Can't do it; the lines are crossed."
: "Wliat's the matter with the line?"
"It's never in 'order!"
"And I wanted to talk to Wall

Miss Madge found herself interest interested.

that dominated the rest, though it was
lost in the shufiie now and then. The
girl caught these words:
f "At least ten thousand. About two
o'clock. The corner of Willow and
Stark streets. Don't strike 1 to kill,
but to stun. Yes, two of them. Then
upstairs and down the back way.
Sure thing." : .
What was the meaning of those
words! Here was something different
from a dream. It was a mystery. "I
am going to be there and see it," she
mused.! ':X ,, X "'
At 1:45 that afternoon an auto with
Miss Madge Seaforth seated in the
tonneau was at the corner of Willow
and Stark streets. Three men were
leaning against a wall.
From down Stark street came twTo
men. One of the men carried a
leather bag. j
A moment more and things began
to happen. The three loungers at attacked

There were I shouts and blows and

"Save it from the thugs if you can!"
l And then the girl found herself at
the wheel and speeding away. Straight
home, a mile away, and the bag was
carried into the house. It was then
that Miss Madge had a fit of hysteria.
The evening papers had a sensation,
and as Miss Madge read the scare scare-heads
