Mr. s. M. Lummus, is one of Ocala's
well known and respected citizens:
Mr. J. N. Lummus, who is now in Hot
Springs. Ark., where he went several
weeks ago for the benefit of his
health, is much interested in the race
for congressman in the second district,
and writes a letter back to Dade
county asking his friends to stand by
Samuel J. Hilburn for this office. In
his travels in the west he has had oc occasion
casion occasion to see the damage done Florida
by Mr. Clark in his wholesale de denunciation
nunciation denunciation of the real estate interests
of the state, and doesn't hesitate to
say so. Mr. Lummus Is the managing
director of one of Miami's leading
banking institutions, and has been a
resident of this section for many years
and is in a position to speak authorita authoritatively
tively authoritatively on what Is good and bad for
Florida. Tlie letter from Mr. Lummus

I want to ask all of tlie voters to
consider well before casting their vote
for congressman from the second con congressional
gressional congressional district of Florida.
I have been in several states since
leaving home and you can hear in the
sleepers, hotels and most anywhere
you go outside of our state, comments
on the "lemon" that has been handed
us by our congressman, Frank Clark.

supporter of Mr. Clark, but I cannot

far and sacrificed the people he repre represented

his personal friends or enemies.
Mr. Clark could not in four years ex explain

already done to Florida.
Tlie criticism is not confined to Dade

immediate drainage territory, but it is
Florida: We have had the "lemon"
handed us by Mr. Clark, our present
congressman, now it is up to us to
hand him one on the 28th day of May
while the opportunity confronts us.
I have known Mr. Samuel J. Hilburn
personally and intimately for the past
twenty years; he is an able lawyer, a
man of general ability and unques unquestionable
tionable unquestionable character, a man that will be
proud of the office and a man that we
can depend upon to be proud of as our
representative in Congress.
I want all of my friends in the sec second

other states are using Frank Clark's

Under the above head, the Times Times-Union
Union Times-Union publishes an elegant little Sun Sunday
day Sunday sermon, so prettily worded that we
can't help wishing it was all true. The
T.-U. begins by saying:
"From time out of mind we have
heard of the mud and mire of politics
though those who talked years
ago did not know how muddy and miry
politics could become."
Surely, they are all very younff men
on the Times-Union. The editor of the
Star ha3 not reached his half century
mark, but he can remember the cam campaigns
paigns campaigns back to '76 and when hethinks
of the charges thrown and the epithets
slung at Tilden and Hayes, at Hancock
and Garfield, at Cleveland and Blaine
and Harrison, even those clean and up upright
right upright men. Bryan and McKinley. the
present campaign seems almost lady ladylike.
like. ladylike. The Times-Union goes on to say:
"It has become the fashion for men to
run for office not on their own records
or on their own merits but on the re records
cords records or demerits of their rivals. It
would not be as bad as it is if the re records
cords records or the claims of the rivals were
stated thuthfully but they are general generally
ly generally stated without regard for truth."
Very true, most esteemed contem contemporary;
porary; contemporary; It became the fashion in the
streets of Carthage. Athens and Rome,
more than twenty-five centuries ago,
when pointed arguments generally
hardened Into steel blades and verbal
mud solidified into javelins before the
campaign was over. You may more
accurately say it is becoming, very
slowly becoming, the fashion for men
to appeal to reason with reason, and
that while there is yet immense room
for Improvement there is not quite so
much as there was a score or even a
dozen years ago.
But In the classic folds of this
elaborately word-woven article of the
T.-U. was wrapped up a rebuke for
L'Engle, the bold, bad Claude, the only
man in this Florida campaign accused
of slinging mud. In the words of the
wireless, the message ends with the
following highly moral precept:
"When a candidate makes charges
against his opponent the people to
whom he appeals ought to make him
prove them or if he fails ought to
brand him as untruthful, dishonest, un untrustworthy.
trustworthy. untrustworthy. No fair minded man
should vote for a candidate who in indulges

ent. opponent. Men who make a habit of this
should be taught that it does not pay.
Certainly they should not be rewarded
with the confidence of their fellow citi citizens."
zens." citizens." This, you see, is a veiled, but not
to thickly veiled, rebuke to the coarse,
rough Claude for the rude things he
has said about the gentle and polished
Mr. Toomer. The deuce of it is,- that
if Claude had said anything about Mr.
Toomer that is so, you need not expect
the T. U. to rebuke Mr. Toomer. Oh.
no! That isn't what its there for.
For Instance: Claude L'Engle says:
"Mr. Toomer forgot to tell that he was
a paid lobbyist of the Jacksonville race
track during the last session of the
legislature. Ask your 1911 legislative
representative to confirm this."
Our 1911 representative could not
entirely confirm this, for he saw no
money paid Mr. Toomer. and of course
It Is possible to say, tho nobody would
believe it, that Mr. Toomer appeared i
for the racetrack interests from purely
altruistic motives. But appear he did,
as a dozen men In this quiet little city
can testify, and made a speech against
the anti-racetrack bill before the judi judiciary

Not near so elegantly, but much
more accurately, is the subject of mud mud-slinging
slinging mud-slinging dealt with by the sometimes
erratic but always outspoken Albert
M. "Williamson. He says:
"The most colossal liars ever found
In a political campaign are those who
declare they are not 'slinging mud.
This old pot-metal gag has become ab absolutely
solutely absolutely nauseating under the nostrils
of the decent people who are forced to
read it In our daily papers. The voters
of the state have a perfect right to
know who they are arked to support,
and It Is the duty of. every lover of a
decent government to tell whatever he
may know of the shortcoming or the
qualifications of every aspirant for
public office. The men who howl the
loudest against 'mud slinging are
made of the same material of the cow coward
ard coward who would shoot down a man and
then run when he saw that his victim
also had a gun. We have no tolera toleration

unwilling to have his record exposed to
the public, he has no right to ask the
suffrage of his people."
It seems to us that as long as their
favorite has lost out in Florida, the
Wilson delegates should decline to go
to the Baltimore convention. If they
all feel as Frank Mayes does it is sim simply
ply simply impossible for them to give Mr.
Underwood loyal and patriotic sup support.

In the Saturday issue of his paper,
the Pensacola. Journal. Mr. Mayes,
"Florida has no second choice for
president the delegates' are for Un Underwood
derwood Underwood until he has no reasonable
prospects of nomination. The will of
the people must be obeyed and the
voters of Florida unmistakably signi signified
fied signified their preference for Underwood."
We do not see what more assurance
he can give, or what more should be
required. Frank Mayes occupies a high
place in Florida journalism. Tf he has
ever been guilty of a breach of faith,
we have not heard of it. If the state
had Instructed for Wilson, but Editor
Harris had been elected a delegate. h.
and the Star, would have considered it
very unreasonable for any one to ask
him to withdraw in favor of a Wilson
man. Why should he be so unreason unreasonable

Helen looked up at the conductor ;
with a flushed face. "I'm sorry," she ;
said, "but I'm afraid that I have no
money." I
"I guess you can find it if you have
to," h" snorted as he passed on. "Look j
again and hurry up." j
He went out on the rear platform
for a moment, but soon he followed i
another incoming passenger up the
aisle. i
"I really can't find a single coin,
said Helen, looking up from her dis-;
ordered purse.
"That's all right," was the more
gracious response. "A gent out oa j
the platform staked you." j
"Was it that man in the soft hat?"!
she asked as she caught sight of Har-;
vey Tennant trying to look uncon
"Sure thing." he assented. "Shall
send him in?" "j
"I do not care to be under obliga-
tions to the gentleman," she said
coldly. "Please stop the car." j
It was intolerable that after last i
night Harvey should presume to pay
her car fare. Had it been a total
stranger she would have been grate grateful,
ful, grateful, but a man who only the night
before had assured her that she could
not get along without him! She!
would show him that she could, and
she swept off the car with a majestic
dignity that caused Tennant to smile. :
"Look here, Nell," he protested aa ;
he followed her to the sidewalk, "you
: milst not be here alone. It is one olj
the toughest districts in town." j
"So I judge from its inhabitants," i
she said with a meaning glance at
him. "It seems that they take pleas-1
ure in annoying unprotected women.
"That's just the trouble," he said
placidly, though his face reddened.
"Don't be foolish. Let me lend .you a
nickel. You can send it back tonight!
It is only what I would do for any i
woman in the same fix." j
"I do not have to trespass upon j
your chivalry," she declared, with a I
or'nrn fill n r rur r unAn Vi Inct Ti'n r )
"I am amply able to take care of my
"I believe we discussed that to no
purpose last night." he said coldly.
"I adhere to my original opinion."
"And I to mine," she sniffed, as sh
began to walk on. Harvey dropped
back a few paces and followed her.
The dozen blocks bordering the
freight yards bore a most unsavory
reputation. No gently-bred woman
was safe from insult.
And just because he had ventured j
to criticise her boldness in venturing i
out alone on her charity visits sh I
had broken their engagement the i
night before with the scornful state j
ment that she was amply able to take j
care of herself and would have naught j
of a husband who already showed i
such a disposition to bully.
He did not have long to wait foi
his revenge. On the next block a
crowd of half-drunken loafers reeled
from a saloon. Helen shrank to the j
edge of the sidewalk and by her very
precaution attracted their attention, j
"There's me mussis," shouted one
as he lurched toward her. "Come ;
here, me dear, and let hubby have a
few coins for his beer." j
As he staggered toward her Helen
raised her hands to ward him off, and
in doing so dropped her bundles. With
a wild yell the rest of the crowd drov
after the parcels just as Harvey dash dashed
ed dashed up.
A few well-directed kicks scattered
the crowd, but the first speaker was
less easily disposed of. The idea that
Helen was his wife had entered hia
drunken brain and refused to be dis dislodged
lodged dislodged and he made an attempt to
clasp her in his arms while demanding
of the new comer why he should seek
to separate a loving pair.
Harvey's answer was a blow that
sent him sprawling, but he scrambled
to his feet in an instant and staggered
toward his assailant, waving a cotton
hook that had dangled from his belt.
With a scream Helen scttght to
throw herself between the two men,
but Harvey thrust her quickly aside.
The man in his drunken insanity
would make no distinction and it was
a fight man to man.
He had had some experience on the
mat. Had been the wrestling cham champion
pion champion of his club for two seasons, and
he maneuvered for an opening. It
was no easy matter for he had seen
fights among the longshoremen and
know that a cotton hook was far more
dangerous than a knife. It was some
time before he could find his opening,
but at last he closed in with a rush,
pinioning his adversary's arms close
to his side. After that the fight wa3
a short one. Once at a disadvantage
the rough collapsed and through a
sudden turn of his thoughts became
lachrymose. Harvey tearfully lament lamenting
ing lamenting the loss of his wife while he as assisted
sisted assisted Helen to regain such bundles as
had b-en left her.
"I presume that you will not refuse
car fare now," he said as he straight straightened
ened straightened out his overcoat.
"Don't you think we could have a
cab?" she suggested, "because you
see. Harvey we can hold hands in a
"Tier say be failed for $50,000."
"Well, he alwavs was a fellow that

money. I wouldn't think of failin.' for
as little as that." i

You ought to realize by Ibis time that it is more important
to paint the roof than any other part of the building.
Not only does it add just as much to the appearance, but
the roof is exposed to the weather more than any other part.
In addition to this, the roof has more to do with the protection
of the building and the contents than all the other parts.
Our roof paints penetrate the wood and make it impervious
to moisture, thus the roof not only lasts a great deal longer but
affords much better protection while it does last.

Practical Idea of Needed Philanthropy.
A Chicago judge suggests a new duty
for the courts. He says:
"It is all right for people who do not
come in contact with these classes to
say that there is plenty of work for
the man that wants it, but when a
man is down and out and has no place
to go he needs some one to take an
interest in him and get him braced up
And then the court suggests that
some provision be made whereby it
may assist the unfortunate man: give
him some assistance, although the man
may be down and out and hasn't a
cent to pay a fee. For this duty there
should be, it suggests, an attache of
the court to represent it and the cer certain
tain certain influence it may carry in finding
the man work. The unfortunate man
himself, under such influence and care,
might spruce up, do his work well and
make something out of himself.
Alcohol the Ally of Disease and Death.
Dr. Arthur Evans, of London, in an
address delivered at the annual break break-fact

ance Temperance League with the British Medical
Association, at Birmingham, called at attention

He says, "There is no doubt that even
a little alcohol stimulates the animal
