We are sorry to report that at this
term of this court we have been call

ed upon to consider more cases than

havo been presented to any grand

jury In this county in the last twenty

years and in most of these cases have

been compelled to Teturn true bills.

We have been greatly hampered in

our work by the failure of several jus

tices to properly recognize witnesses

to appear before us and in other in

stances in recognizing them to ap

pear on the second Instead of the first

day of the term.
County Offices In Good Condition.
Sheriff

Our committee Inspected the office
of the sheriff and clerk and beg to re

port same apparently in good order.

All books and records in good shape
as far as we could tell by our limited

inspection.
Clerk of the Court
The clerk of this court has furnish

ed us with all the information regard regarding
ing regarding his office and the action of the
board of county commissioners re

quired by law. This report is so

voluminous that it is practicably Im

possible for a body the size of this to
thoroughly investigate same. Nor ean

we see any benefit to be derived from

an observance of Section 772 General

Statutes, requiring the clerk to fur

nish the grand Jury an Itemized state

ment of all monies paid out by the

county commissioners, particularly so

when the state employs an auditor to
go over the books of the county and

check them up.

An Uaelea Expense
We recommend that the court sug

gest to the next legislature that the

above section be repealed.

New Jail Approved
We Inspected the Jail and found It

neat and in good condition with the

exception of the shower bath floor

which needs a ridge In order that the
water can run back into the sewerage
instead of all over the floor. The wa

ter closets in the cells also need to be
fixed, as there is a leakage so that

when the water is turned on It stands
in puddles on the floor in the passage passageway
way passageway between the cells.

County Judge
The committee appointed to inspect

the county Judge's office beg to report
everything in connection with same in
good order.

Superintendent of Schools

Having inspected the office of the

superintendent of public instruction.

beg to say that while our Inspection
was of a limited nature, we found the
books and records in a very neat and

satisfactory manner. It was explained

to us that in order to keep up with the

office work a great deal of his time Is

employed that should be devoted to
outside work over the county. He ad

vises us that he cannot keep regular

help on the- $300 per annum allowed

him for this purpose and what assist

ance he does have being only tem

porary and entirely untrained in the
d'utles of the. office. Is not very satis

factory.

Should Have More Clerical Help

This being one of the most import

ant offices in the county, we do not
believe that the majority of the super

intendent's time should be occupied in
offce work, and as he tells us he could
possibly obtain regular office assist

ance for $50 per month, we recom

mend that he be allowed the additional

sum of $300 per annum.

We also find that the floor of his

office is in very bad repair and is ap

parently in danger of breaking in if

not looked after in the near future.
Tax Collector

Our committee appointed to examine

the tax collector's office report as fol

ows: We find everything in excellent

condition with no recommendations

suggested or complaints made by the

collector.

Poor Farm

Upon complaint being made to us

that the Inmates of the poor farm

were being neglected we examined two

of the inmates of same and they tes

tified that they had no complaint as

far as their personal comfort was con

cerned but to the best of their knowl

edge the superintendent was somewhat

extravagant In the use of the money

allowed for the upkeep of the farm,
where he is personally concerned. We

recommend that the county commis

sioners look into these matters and

take steps to adjust all irregularities,

if any.

Equalise the Assessments

We beg to mention the following.

which we believe at presenilis a very
interesting subject to most of the tax

payers of this county. With the coun

ty at present heavily in debt and with
no assurance to the tax payers that it
will not increase instead of diminish

ing, we beg to call to the attention

of the officials of the county who have

the power to determine valuations,
that it is an Indisputable fact that In
a great many instances that those
who reap the most benefit from the
large expenditures of money are be beyond
yond beyond doubt more able to pay taxes, are
paying less In proportion to the man
that is less able to stand it, and we
are satisfied that If there was more
equalization of assessed valuations In
this county, there would be a reduction
in millage and the county's revenue
would be greatly Increased, and there
would be no protests except perhaps
from those that are now returning
their property at perhaps a fraction of
its real value.
We, the Jury, beg to thank Mr. Da Davis

private hospital.
Several weeks ago the child fell

from a high box right onto its head.

There was a piece of board on the

floor, through which a big, rusty nail

protruded for an Inch and a half, and

the nail was driven full length into

the top of the boy's head. The child
did not suffer a great deal and the
local physician treated him, but aft afterwards
erwards afterwards had convulsions. Mr. Hill

brought the child to Ocala and the
physicians here advised him to take

him to Dr. Rogers.

The operation yesterday was most

successful and the blood clot which
had formed and caused the trouble.

was removed. The little fellow Is do doing

been at close Quarters with an
American girl, and he would have

wondered If all American girls

were like Joan Lackland had he not

had wit enough to realize that she was

not at all typical. Her quick mind
and changing moods bewildered him,

while her outlook on life was so dif

ferent from what he conceived a wo

Her temper was quick and stormy,
and she relied too much on herself and

too little on him, which did not ap approximate
proximate approximate at all to his ideal of wo woman's
man's woman's conduct when a man was
around. Her assumption of equality

with him was disconcerting, and at

times he half consciously resented the

Impudence and blzarreness of her in

trusion upon him, rising out of the

sea in a howling nor'wester, fresh
from poking her revolver under Eric-

son's nose, protected by her gang of

huge Polynesian sailors and settling

down in Berande like any shipwrecked
sailor. It was all on a par with her

Baden-Powell and the long 38 Colt's.

At any rate, she did not look the

part. And that was what he could

not forgive. Had she been short hair haired,

bitten and utterly unlovely in every

she was so many sided.

Sheldon certainly was not happy.

The unconventional state of affairs

was too much for his conservative dis

position and training. Berande, In

habited by one lone white man, was

no place for Joan Lackland. Yet he
racked his brain for a way out, and

even talked It oyer with her. In the

first place, the steamer from Australia

was not due for three weeks.

"One thing Is evident; you don't

want me here," she said. "I'll man

the whale boat tomorrow and go over

to Tulagi."

"But as I told you before, that Is
Impossible. he cried. "There Is no
