villages on the Rio de la Plata. As
soon as the South American coast "was
sighted, Arrlcos mounted the guns on
deck. When the mouth of the Rio de

flag was hoisted. The hull of the
steamer was repainted and her name
changed to Coimbra. Thanks to a

heavy snowstorm the vessel got past

Montevideo and Buenos Ayres -without
attracting attention. Her name was
again changed to Asuncion.

The Belgian crew were compelled to
obey orders, Arrlcos standing over

too, that If the vessel were taken they
would be summarily dealt with.
They continued,? therefore, to -work

WHERE AXD HOW SHALL
WE OBTAIN BETTER WATER
Everybody In Ocala wants the city
to have better water than It has now.
and more of it. There may be some
difference of opinion as to the ways
and means but there is unanimity on
the desired end. We should therefore
all discuss the matter in public spirit
and without acrimony, taking it for
granted that no man has an ax to
grind and only desires to attain what
la best for the common weaL
There are two questions one Is
whether to buy the plant of the water
company or to set up a new one; the
other is whether to obtain our water
from a distance or -try to soften it at
home. Before committing itself to any
policy, it Is best for the city to ascer ascertain
tain ascertain with reasonable certainty how to
obtain the best results with the least
money. It has no funds to waste.
The only objection to Ocala water
Is that it is so impregnated with lime
that it Is hard. It is otherwise pure
and with Increased machines can be
procured In quantity to supply a much
larger city. It is just as good as the
water possessed by the big city of
Jacksonville, which has more than dou doubled
bled doubled in population in the last score of
years, and whose people seem to pos possess
sess possess a fair proportion- of health and
happiness.
How much better it would be, how however,
ever, however, if the water was soft everybody
knows, and we are now probably at the
point where we can secure the desired
Improvement.
The simplest thing to do, of course,
Is to secure soft water from some nat natural
ural natural source. Unfortunately, Ocala Is so
situated that no such source i3 con convenient;
venient; convenient; If it had been the city would
have connected with it long ago.
For several years, there has been a
strong desire to obtain water from
Lake Weir, the nearest large body of
soft water to the city. It has really
eemed the most natural and proper
thing to run a pipe line to this big
natural tank of soft water and let the
desirable fluid flow In profusion Into
the city.
Unfortunately, there are two large
obstacles In the way of the execution
of this plan. One is that a considera considerable
ble considerable number of the people living around
Lake Weir are opposed to having the
water our city needs drawn from their J
lake. They say, with some -reason,
that they will need all the water In It
themselves If not now, in the future
and are certain that the drain from the
gTowing town of Ocala will be more
than the lake can stand and preserve
Its beauty and healthfulness.
ouresjeemed contemporary, the
Ba'nrier, says., the lake belongs to the
state. But the property around it be belongs
longs belongs to the people who live on it, and
the state might decide, and probably'
would, that they have a better right
to say what shall be done with the
water than the people of Ocala nearly
a score of miles away. At any rate, as
long as one citizen of Lake Weir with
the means and disposition to take the
case Into the courts opposes Ocala's
drawing water from the lake, our city
cannot obtain it without legal proceed proceedings
ings proceedings that might go against us. Not
one, but many of the lake dwellers are
against the proposition, and the Star
lias the opinion of a very good lawyer
that they would most likely win in the
ourts. So far as the Star is concern concerned,
ed, concerned, it is dead against any attempt to
force the people of Lake Weir into let
ting Ocala draw water from their lake.
'Aside from the expense, the ill feeling
that would be sure to result in some something
thing something to be avoided ifbsstUw ft
would be a directrwfation of the 're 'revised
vised 'revised goldenlefwhich says "Do unto
the ch,rTellow like you were him."
.Another powerful objection to bring bringing
ing bringing water from Lake Weir is the im immense
mense immense expense. Very few of the peo people
ple people who talk so glibly of bringing wa water
ter water to Ocala have counted the cost. If
they did, the figures would make them
stagger. The Star is Informed on good
authority that the pipe alone would
cost over $90,000. It would be neces
sary to buy a tract of land on the shore
of the lake and erect a powerful
pumping plant. The Star doesn't know
the altitude of Lake Weir, but Is under
the impression that it is lower than
Ocala. At any rate, the difference in
the levels would not be enough to do
away with the standpipe. It would
cost a goodly sum of money to lay the
pipe across the seventeen miles be between
tween between Lake Weir and Ocala. and it
isn't to be supposed that the people
whose lands it would cross would give
away the privilege.
As for Blue Sink, it is not now known
that the people In Its vicinity oppose
Ocala drawing water from it. But it
Isn't much nearer than Lake Weir, and
the expense of bringing water from it
would be almost as great. Two other
points need consideration. One is that
no man knows the extent of the sup supply
ply supply of the water of Blue Sink. It may
be fed by a river of considerable
i-e or by a comparatively small spring.
Until this can be ascertained with cer certainty,
tainty, certainty, it would be foolish for a town
the size of Ocala to try to dray its wa water
ter water supply from It. Another is that the
water of a sink sometimes finds an out outlet
let outlet bigger than its Inlet and drains out
In a hurry, so if Ocala draws her fluid
supply from such a source, she never
will have any guarantee against wak waking
ing waking up some fine morning to find her herself
self herself with fifteen miles of dry pipes and
a hole in the ground.
There may be nearer sources of soft
water than Lake Weir or Blue Sink; If
BO. the Star would be glad to be in informed
formed informed of them. It does not think the
city can afford to draw water from
nearer than four or five miles on' ac account
count account of the expense. It would take a
source of considerable volume to sup supply
ply supply the town with water. We have a
number of industrial plants, any one
of which would use the water from an
ordinary sized spring. The water that
Is constantly kept running into Ocala's
pipes would, if combined Into. one
stream, make a much bigger creek
than most people imagine.
Now, as for obtaining our water
supply and softening it on the spot,

we have all the fluid, we need right un under
der under us. and the Star is informed that
there are ways and means of making
it just as soft and pure as that drawn
from any natural supply can be. The
Star doesn't vouch 'for t.hi3 Informa Information.

out, but If it is practicable it will cer certainly

curity. security. If we draw water from a dis distance,
tance, distance, we can never be sure, as big bigger
ger bigger cities have found to their sorrow,
that the source isn't contaminated, or
that some accident will not cut it off.
As long as we have our water supply
right here under our own hands, we
will know what it is and what It will
do.
As for the question of buying the old
plant or building a new one. the Star
thinks that It will be best for the city
to buy, if the water company is reas reasonable,
onable, reasonable, and then improve the plant. It
i3 almost certain that the water com company
pany company will sell at a figure that will
make it to the advantage of the city
to buy rather than incur the Immense
expense of moving it3 property. There
is no reason why the city should be
"stung" in such a transaction. There
are plenty of men competent to put a
fair valuation on the old plant, allow allowing
ing allowing for deterioration; and if an agree agreement
ment agreement can be reached, the city can take
possession of it and improve it to meet
its needs much more quickly and
cheaply than it can put up a plant of
its own.
The Star therefore favors the city
buying the old plant and putting in a
water-softening apparatus. Its ad advocacy
vocacy advocacy of this plan is contingent on
the water company being reasonable
and a waterTsoftening machine being
what its advocates claim for it. These
are matters for the citizens and the
council to calculate in public spirit and
decide on what is best for the general
good.

PERNICIOUS FEATURE OF
THE FREE TEXT BOOK PLAt
The Star highly approves of the fol following
lowing following from the Miami Metropolis:
One 'of the candidates for state super superintendent
intendent superintendent of public instruction, Col. A.
M. C. Russell, who for many years has
been identified with the educational
work of Florida, is making his race
primarily on his advocacy offree text
books for the children of the state and
it is possible that the word "free" will
succeed in securing him the support
of the less intelligent number of the
voters of the state.
Col. Russell is sincere in his ad advocacy
vocacy advocacy of the measure because he Is
sincere in everything, but the county
school boards of Florida are already
permitted to provide free text books
if they care to and in three counties of
the state the plan has been tried with
little satisfaction. In some counties,
too probably in all the counties of
Florida provision is made by the board
of public instruction to provide text
books for all children financially una-,
ble to secure them, making the "free"
text book proposition a rather unnec unnecessary
essary unnecessary one from the money stand standpoint.
point. standpoint. There is another standpoint, however,
that should be given first considera consideration
tion consideration and that is the practice of hand handing
ing handing down textbooks from grade to
grade that accompanies the free text
book system in places where it Is used.
We have seen geographies piled high higher
er higher than your head, dog-eared and germ
infested that one fifth reader class
after another had used until the last
room full of children that were com compelled
pelled compelled to use the Tepulsive looking
books, hated geography most fervent fervently
ly fervently and naturally.
It is bad enough for little brothers
and sisters to have to use battered up
books that the older ones have fraz frazzled
zled frazzled the learning out of, but it is a
whole lot worse for a clean-handed
little fellow to start a new year at
school with a collection of books that
have been handled by the Lord knows
who and how. J
Curious as it sounds, we believe that
the public schools are designed for the
education of the children and any anything
thing anything for the sake of the people's
pocketbook that is saved at the ex expense
pense expense of the educational phase of the
situation should not be countenanced.
"Free text books" sound well but the
better plan would be for every eounty
in the state to be compelled to adopt
the plan of providing school supplies
for all children who come from fam families
ilies families unable to provide them and give
parents the privilege of buying for
each little son and daughter a set of
brand new books, clean and shiny and
nspiring, to be their "very own."
THE CHINESE REPUBLIC
A republican form of government in
China would be an absolute failure
and would be a calamity to the Chi
nese nation, according to Prof. W. G.
Bateman of the Imperial University at
Tien Sin, who has arrived at hi? home
in California after being driven out of
China as the result of the revolution.
"The people in China are more ig ignorant
norant ignorant than we Americans realize,"
said Professor Bateman. "Their con condition
dition condition is simply awful. They are In
no condition to govern themselves."
What the professor says may be
true, but how are the Chinese ever to
learn to govern themselves unless they
begin at some time to try.

Just outside a cemetery stood a
liquor saloon. It was close by the
main entrance, where the gate was
locked. A sign on the corner of the
saloon read, 'The key to the cemetery

Hon. Carroll D. Wright, the eminent
statistician, says that statistics show
that the cost of trying, convicting and
punishing the criminals who are led to
crime through strong dring amount
to at least twenty times as much as

SANTA CLAUS

(Copyright. 1911)
Sl5&T was Christmas eve.
Andrew Hillington, with
a neat little package in
his breast pocket and a
throbbing heart beneath
the same pocket, had been
trying for a full hour to
muster up enough courage
to take out the package,
and offer It, together with
his throbbing heart, to
Amabel Tuttle.
Amabel was just such a
young woman as just such a young
man as Andrew would ardently desire
to present with his throbbing heart
and the contents of the neat package.
The latter contained a ring, set with
a single diamond. The throbbing
heart contained what Andrew was
ready to promise should be life-long
devotion to Amabel.
Why go into detail regarding the
whole year during which he had laid
siege to the heart of Amabel?
There had been moments this
Christmas ere when Andrew's fingers
nervously sought his breast pocket.
Amabel knew he was on the verge of
proposing. Gracious mercy! The
woman who cannot diagnose a threat threatened
ened threatened : proposal is no woman at all.
The stammering speech, the flushed
brow, the hesitant remarks, the fixity
of stare all these and many other
symptoms are to the average woman
what temperature and respiration are
to the specialist In fevers.
For some unexplained reason women
like to postpone a proposal. They
prolong the agony. They enjoy the
sighs, the awkwardness, the anxiety,
of the swain. They revel In his ab abject
ject abject willingness to sacrifice himself,
if need be, to gain their promise.
It may be that instinct teaches
them this is the only moment when
the man will be a slave.
At last, however, It became time for
Andrew to say good-night. It was
Christmas eve, and he knew Amabel's
family would have some little prepara preparations
tions preparations to make for the festivities of
the morrow. He did not think for a
ment of the tremendous fact that
when a young woman allows a young
man to spend Christmas evewith her
she is writing "Yes" in large letters
on the wall. No man can realize any anything
thing anything at such times.
Andrew said he must be going, after
Amabel had began to wonder if he
was going to talk about the weather
and the latest book all evening.
"Must you go, really?" she asked,
brightly. "Wait just a' moment. I
have something for you."
She went into another room, then
came back with a small package,
which she handed to him.
"Just, a little Christmas remem remembrance,"
brance," remembrance," she smiled. "You won't
"Just a LIU! Christmas
brance."
Remenv
mind getting it ahead of time, will
you? Such good friends as you and
I needn't wait for Christmas day It Itself,
self, Itself, need we?"
She carefully stood Immediately be beneath
neath beneath a spray of mistletoe when she
said this, but Andrew did not notice
it. This is further proof that love is
blind.
"Thank you," Andrew mumbled,
nervously. "I I I wish you a merry
Christmas, Am-amabel."
"That's nice of you, and I hope you
like the little gift. It really lsn"t a
gift, Andrew. It's Just a necktie I
made for you myself. I wish It could
have been something nicer but
you'll let the sentiment that goes with
It count for what it lacks in value or
beauty, won't you?"
She carelessly reached up and ad adjusted
justed adjusted the spray of mistletoe, smiling
also at Andrew. Andrew stood there,
turning the package over and over in
his hands, blind as ever. What Am Amabel
abel Amabel thought we never will know.
There must be times while a woman
is landing a man that she is so en enraged
raged enraged with his obtuseness that she
would keenly enjoy thumping him on
the head with a shovel.

Andrew got his eyes away from
hers long enough to ask:
"Are you going to have a Christmas
tree?"
"No. We're old-fashioned, you
know. We're just going to hang up
our stockings In front of the grate,
and let Santa come right down the
chimney. I love those old customs,
don't you?"
As she spoke of the old customs
she once more pushed the spray of
mistletoe up into place. This time
Andrew saw it, and away down deep
in his heart he wished he were Just a

You see, under the mistletoe, things

action tells what is affecting him.
He told her he had spent a pleas pleasant
ant pleasant evening; he thanked her for the
little gift; he promised -to come again,
and he got out and away and then
he realized that he had not given her
the present he had meant to hand to
her with a few well chosen words
which should cause her to fall into his
arms and promise to be his forever.
Also, he realized that he had not even
wished her a merry Christmas in the
way he had planned to wish it.
All the way home he abused him himself
self himself for being such a fool. Why, any
man with a spark of self-confidence,
he told himself, would have told the
girl what he had in his heart and in
his pocket for her would have made'
a neat but effective little speech ot 1
presentation, and would have conclud.
ed his peroration with her head
against his shoulder and her plump
white hand in his.
There came to him a flash of in inspiration.

ring to Amabel's home, climb in a
side window from the porch, deposit
the ring and a note in her stocking?
This would make her feel that he had!
planned it all as a real Christmas sur surprise
prise surprise for her. A Christmas gift and
a Christmas proposal all at once
would certainly appeal to the roman romantic
tic romantic side of any girl.
So he wrote his note, wrapped it j
about the ring, replaced the ring and j
the note in the little box, wrapped itj
up, and betook himself to Amabel's j
home.
The porch from which he planned
to effect his surreptitious entrance I
was a side one. He remembered that!
last summer Amabel's father had
said he must have the catch on the
window repaired. He knew perfectly

Through the side yard and over the!
porch rail he went. The window he!
found unfastened. Carefully he raised
it and felt his way into the room. To
his astonishment he saw a ray of

Andrew was standing in the dark darkness,
ness, darkness, in the middle of the room. He
wished the family would quit talking
especially as they were talking of
him and go to bed and allow nim to
drop his gift into Amabel's stocking.
He did not dare to move, for fear of
running Into some furniture. He
hardly dared breathe.
"Suddenly from down street came

open the room where Andrew stood.
Andrew darted behind a bookcase just
In time. Mr. Tuttle went through the
room to the hall and opened the front
door. Mrs. Tuttle followed him, de despite
spite despite Amabel's remonstrances that she
would catch cold.
There was the sound of hurried
foosteps up the walk.
"What's the matter?" Mr. Tuttle
asked.
"Where is he?" said a voice.
"Where's who?"
"Patrolman Jones telephoned that
he saw a man breaking into your
house."
Andrew shivered with alarm. This
was a predicament. To be arrested
as a burglar, to be carted off to jail,
without a chance to explain. He
peered from behind the bookcase and
saw Amabel dreamily banging her
stocking. He swiftly came from his
hiding place, and silently hurried to
her side. Taking the package from
his pocket, he whispered:
"Amabel! I I forgot to tell you I
love you, and here's my proposal, and
the engagement ring, too!"
The mere fact that he had appeared
thus mysteriously at her side did not
appeal to Amabel. She did not think
of that at all. She said:
"Oh, Andrew!"
And she then allowed herself to
fall Into his arms.

STARXES STOCK COMPANY
GAVE A FIXE SHOW
The weather was so bad last night
that it is a wonder that anybody went
out of doors unless they had to, so the
first appearance of the Starnes Stock
Company at the Temple drew a rather
slender attendance. The show people
however, went ahead and played as
well as to a housefull, and drew mans
good laughs and much hearty applause.
"The Devil'3 Web" was a constant
struggle between the hero and the
heroine and several other good people
and a very capable villain aided by a
willing sub-villain, in which the good
folks, owing to the careless way in
which the hero persisted in turning his
back at the wrong t'me. were subject subjected
ed subjected to much inconvenience. The villain
however in the last act put his gun in
the wrong pocket in a most inartistic
way and wound up by being headed
for the turpentine camps, while his
victims lived long and were happy
ever after. Miss Grace Kensell, the
leading lady, is most charming and
capable, and Misses Ada Shelton and
Flossie Hall, who concealed their nat natural
ural natural good looks with comic disguises,
supported her most efficiently. Mr.
C. E. Frances, who is a very pelas pelas-ant
ant pelas-ant gentleman off the stage, made a
good villain on it and was ably as assisted
sisted assisted in his rascality by Lafe,Jessup.
Roderic Meaney as hero pleased all.
Frank Hill and Barry Donnelly were
irresistible in their comicalities and
Will Keigley played his double part
most efficiently. The music was
superb, and the specialties were first first-class,
class, first-class, particularly Will Kingsley's
performance on the wire, which was
as fine as has ever been seen any anywhere.

they are going to get," she assured him
as he rose and took her hand. "Good

merely headstrong or whether you

Sheldon said In the morning at break breakfast

Joan retorted. "You have more pre preconceived

I sailed my own schooner here skip skipper,

you are trying to carry out your
Hughie's plan. Dad started to sail and
sail until he could find the proper
Islands for planting. He died, and I
sailed and sailed until I arrived here.
Well," she shrugged her shoulders,
"the schooner Is at the bottom of the
sea; I can't sail any farther: therefore
I remain here. And a planter I shal.
certainly be. Do you want me for a
partner?"
"But do you realize that I would be

"No; decidedly not. But there you

of youth, and no man can answer that.
The facts of life have no place in the
logic of youth. Youth must try to live
according to its logic. The facts always
smash youth's logic, and they usually
smash youth's heart, too. It's like
platonic friendships and and all such
things; they are ail right in Ibeory, but
they won't work in practice.

"Suppose we do become partners on
Berande," he said, "either I'll fall in
love with you or you with me. Pro Propinquity

"If she were a man, I'd bundle her

after she had left the room.
But that was the trouble. She was
not a man, and where would she go.
and what would happen to her?
He got to his feet, lighted a ciga cigarette,
