of the immense gridiron over the head
of the presiding officer and from that
moment until the diners were dismiss dismissed
ed dismissed to the strains of "The Song That
Touched My Heart." candidates of the
democratic faith were continually In
evidence. They appeared as Judges of
election, members of a court of honor,
as Robin Hood's band of lusty outlaws
and as contenders In a steeplechase.
The situation was enlivened occasional occasionally

"If I cut steel and steel cuts me.

The answer was: "Not If Mr. Bryan
sees you first."
To the "Gentlemen's Court of Hon Honor"

' The Gridiron Club permits Its guests
to share in the fun attending the ini-'
iiation of "a new member and there
was no exception Saturday night, when
Mr. Harry Stevens was added to the
limited membership. A spot light In
the darkened hall disclosed an old
time bard, who delivered "The Lay of
the Last Minstrel." His songs, though
set in classic music, were Tedolent of
present politics. Thus sang Bryan of
"Believe me. If all those endearing
Which so fondly to conquer I try,

Asked for one of Taft's favorite airs
the minstrel sang to the tune of
"Oh, the tariff talk in Congress Halls,
Grows sadder day by day.
And Underwood unceasingly calls.
Upon the band to play,
A veto fiercely lurks about.
With musket and with sword,
To kill a bill put through without

The whiskers were pulled from the
minstrel's face by a suspicious mem member

overwhelming majority think I am the

The tuneful opera of "Robin Hood"
was the vehicle for the presentation of
a number of prominent progressives.
Most of them had sought the bosky
shades of Sherwood Forest for the sake
of its tall timber, hence they fell easily
into Robin's merry crew. There was
"little John (Jim) Garfield," and "Will
Scarlet LaFollette," and "Friar Pin Pin-chot"
chot" Pin-chot" and good "Dame Marketting,"
besides Robin Hood; who. introducing
himself as an outlaw, sang: "But out outlaws
laws outlaws now. you see. are men of wealth
and rank and pedigree." There was a
"loud blast" from a bugle in the forest
depths and It was announced: "That's
Bob LaFollette." (Very faint blast),
"That's Cummings." (General mix-up
of discords), "Henry Watterson is in
conference with Woodrow Wilson."
That tuneful air, "Old Cross Bow,"
was given a strange twist, as follows:
"A statesman who dwelt on the Out Outlook's

"Was daft with his old Big Stick

AT THE BAPTIST CHURCH
A vrell known newspaper editor once
said that one of the best qualifications
of a successful editor was knowing
how to boil it down." and if he had
been speaking of preachers he might
jhave gauged them by the same rule.
tfor the successful preacher is one who
. talk into an interesting: and mstruc-
discourse of about twenty minutes.
The Rev. J D. Chapman, the pastor
of the Baptist church of Ocala. is
eminently successful along that line.

biblical sermons that we

of Matt. 6-10.
"Thv will be done."
This, as is well known, is a part of j
the sermon on the mount, and the i
preacher said that no one could be a j

kind could call on God to establish his

words, also in fear do many try to feel j

'lustration of this point he told of j
Cardinal Newman who when in em-
iminent danger from shipwreck uttered
the sentiments which he afterwards
embodied in the beautiful hymn, "Lead
Kindly Light." Pastor Chapman recit-
insr the whole of the hymn in a most
impressive manner. But if it is dif
ficult to use the prayer when the heart;
if? broken with grief or fear, yet is it;
much harder to ask God that his will j
be done on earth during our seasons of j
Joy is usually selfish and when we
are surrounded with the blessings and
pleasures which he gives, we are apt
to take them as an evidence of our own
merit and fail to see the necessity of
callins on his will to be done. Also
I in the case of worldly possessions, it is
! even more difficult for a man to use
Before the sermon the pastor gave
notice of an important meeting at the
'church on Wednesday night, at which

it was a mere baby snake of a foot

monster six feet long, with cerise eyes

Before any one realized what he
