the deal he suspected. but when he

So from a man who said he had "been

had a design and purpose in mind
that of trying to get into the second
primary came the unsupported, the
absurd, the ridiculous and unreasona

of being the expression only of the
wildest Imagination. Mr. Gibbons
knew the people would not approve of
him, the fourth man in the race, trying
to get his name on the ticket when
such conduct was contrary to the prac

thousand voters refused him the right
to get into the second primary. The
will of the people ended his rights In
the first primary. The chairman of
the state committee and the supreme
court have affirmed the verdict of the
people by holding he has no right to
go into the second primary.
At the time it was no secret and no
one has attempted to conceal the fact
that Mr. Milton, with some of his

I give further substantiation to
the proof that Toomer was a paid

Hon. Claude LEngle,

Dear Claude I am just in re receipt

muster one vote.
I can say further, that so far
as my knowledge of your career

The above is conclusive, as is
all the proof I have of all the
charges I have made against W.

see that every L'Engle vote is
polled next Tuesday In order to
give a stinging rebuke to the
full pocket-book wirteh puts

(Jack Ennoid in the Houston Stylus.)
When the pistol shot suddenly rang
out in the village street, and Emmett i
Foster staggered forward, paused, and
then stretched prone in the dust it
created a sensation in a way, but it j
was not attended by the rush of feet
to the spot that citizens of the older j
and more thickly settled portions of ;
the earth would expect to see when ;
the life nf a .uood ritizen is suddenly
and ruthlessly condemned to take the ;
pistol route at the hands of a much
less valued member of the community, i
That is not the way thinas are done j
in the less settled portions of the great J
State of Texas or even in the more j
densely populated portions, for that j
matter. Men who know by experience
what an absolutely careless character j
is a pistol bullet, as regards persons i
or objects that stand in its path, never j
rush headlong to a spot whence comes
the sound of deadly strife. The inno- j
cent by-stander or the anxious looker- ;
on has too often been the final destin-
ation of flying pieces of lead that were j
originally intended for entirelv differ-
ent resting places. While natural curi-

munities. it is held entirely in check j
by the all-powerful law of self preser- I

that it is best first to reconnoitre.
So it was when Dune Smith fired the

but the preliminary of a fusilade.
When a few silent moments had
passed and there was no repetition of
the shot and no further signs of con- I

was seen that Dune hail turned on his
heel after a momentary scrutiny of
the body of his victim which disclosed

swung easily into the saddle, looked
round for any possible signs of hostil hostility,

at his leisure.
Again, citizens of older and more set settled
tled settled communities may be shocked at
this sudden debauchery of a human
life with no effort made by the fel fellow
low fellow eiti.ens of the deceased to pre prevent
vent prevent tiie escape of the murderer but
such is Texas custom. Resides, they
knew that Smith was not going to run
away, and that to attempt to dispute dispute-the
the dispute-the matter of his present movements
with him was a job that belonged to
the sheriff alone, such being the un unwritten
written unwritten law of the pistol. Had a
brother, father, son. or other close re relation
lation relation of the murdered man been at
hand, the leisurely departure of the
gun man might not have been so peace peaceable:
able: peaceable: but the average citizen of the
community where the gun man is a
fixture is slow to play the part of
avenger, or officer either. He minds
his own business strictly unless, as
before stated, the deceased were "kin"
of his. If the sheriff calls on him
afterwards to join a posse and help
get the killer, he does so cheerfully.
However, here also there is an excep exception,
tion, exception, if the murderer happens to he
"kin" of his, in which case lie seldom
permits his love for law and order to
interfere with his time honored feeling
for blood relations, with its duties and ies.
When the dust of Dune Smith's pony
had become a blot in the distance,
the crowd began to gather. It wa
discovered that Foster was dead:
"plumb dead." as several expressed it.
It was an hour later that the sheriff
arrived on the scene, and ten minutes
afterward he was riding toward Dune
Smiths place, six miles out. He had
no doubt about finding his man. and
no idea of any opposition being made
to his desire to arrest him. In 'nis
stoical mind the sheriff saw no reason
why Dune should run. It was not
the first time that his gun had been
used on his fellow man, and he had
not run before. The sheriff remember remembered
ed remembered that in the fifteen years that he
had been a peace officer in that com community
munity community there had been a score of "kill "killings,"

one five-year sentence that was only
partially served, the law had failed
to inflict any penalty for the crimes
committed. This 'had come to be the
order of things, and the sheriff had in
time come to accept them as sue::.

. Th democrats of Florida ought to
jrire special consideration to those two
reteran newspaper men who are still

candidates before them for the honor

of representing the state at the na

tlonal eonTentlon: Frank Harris of

Ocaja, and A. P. Jordan, of Punt a

Oorda. These gentlemen have 'always
fought the battles of Florida, both in
a business and a political sense and

they certainly merit the small boon

they are asking an office that carries

no remuneration. Mr. Harris is a can candidate
didate candidate for delegate at large and Mr.
Jordan for delegate from the first
congressional district and. they ought
to receive the votes of every democrat
in the district. Tampa Tribune.

Mr. Harris Is quite certain to receive
the vote of his home county, and it is
probable that Mr. Jordan will also re receive
ceive receive many votes in Marion, where he

Is well known and highly esteemed.

It Is very likely that If the Interests
and the fanatics had let the delegate

Question alone, 'the people would have
voted for nost of the Underwood men
without any prompting. Denunciation
of Wilson men comes almost entirely

from the Wall street influences who
are trying to put Underwood up as a
straw man for Taft to knock down,
and some people who are too narrow

minded to see on both sides of their
noses at once. It hasn't done Under

wood or the party any good. If any

thing would justify Wilson men into
leaving the Underwood camp at the

first excuse, It will be the insinuations

against their honor so lavishly dealt
out by the T.-U. and Its echoes In the

last few days.

Under the fierce headline, "Under

wood puts his critics to flight," the
Alabama candidate says that his vote
on the Bristow amendment Is the same

as that cast by other Southern mem

bers for the Rucker resolution In 1900

With all respect to the distinguished

Alabaman, the Star submits that

neither he nor any other Southern man
had any right to vote for such a reso

lution in 1900. 1912 or any other time

His critics haven't flitted and his de

fense is simply a case of saying

"You're another."

The next time your young son chucks
a rock at a tilly-hawk, explain to him

that birds are of money value to the

nation. The doctrine of dollars avails

when humanltarlanism fails utterly.

To the Hon. W. S. Bullock, Judge of

the Fifth Judicial Circuit: We, the
grand jury, in making' this our final

presentment, wish to say that we have

diligently examined into all cases that
have come before us, finding true bills

where there, was sufficient evidence in

our opinion to warrant.

A committee was appointed to Inves

tigate the poor farm and they report

as follows:

Found the white quarters In good

shape, but the negro quarters in bad
condition and unsanitary. We recom

mend that the indigents of the county

be moved to a less expensive place

than this farm is now to the county.

The expense Is too great. The farm.

we understand, is being rented by the

county at a rent of 30 per month,
while the whole property recently sold

for $3000.

We suggest that a more comfortable

home can be found for these people at

a much less cost to the county.

Our visit to the jail revealed the fact

that we have in this institution a very

fine piece of property, and is now in a
most excellent condition so far as the

cleanliness and actual need of the pris

oners are concerned. However, we

find that the building leaks in several
places, and we strongly recommend
that they be repaired at once. Also,
that an outside wall or high iron fence
be placed around the Jail, and that the

windows of the insane department be

screened with heavy grating for pro

tection from accident by breaking

of glass windows.

A visit to the county offices found

that the books in all are in excellent

shape, well and intelligently kept and
are comprehensive. However, the

floors in the supervisor of public in

struction, collector and Judge's offices

are In bad repair, in some places
sunken. This with the bad condition
of the grand jury room and falling

plaster in the hall, as far as we are
able to ascertain, are the only bad
places about the courthouse.

It has been brought to our knowl

edge that the county commissioners
have been careless in issuing licenses

to carry firearms, and recommend that

in the future they be more careful.

cautious and prudent, and examine

into the moral character of the appli-

Lcant before issuing licenses. We also

recommend that permit No. 1015. is issued
sued issued to Ivy C. E. Whisenant be revok revoked,
ed, revoked, as we do not believe him a proper
person to carry firearms.
We have examined into the commis commissioner's
sioner's commissioner's system of building hard roads,
and find that the expense appears to
be too great for the work accomplish accomplished,
ed, accomplished, and that the road foreman's salary
of $125 monthly, is entirely too much
for that position, as the law provides
$2 per day, which is a reasonable
amount for the work and responsibility
that the position carries with it. Also
that the teams hauling material to the
roads are Insufficiently loaded, or In
our opinion, to be strictly humane,
they could still be more heavily loaded.
We respectfully recommend that the
county convicts be kept on the roads,
and that the work on the Ocala and
Dunnellon road be finished before they
are moved, but only with convict la labor,
bor, labor, and that each precinct have its
pro rata share of the road tax, to together
gether together with the convict labor. We find
that there has been discrimination
made In the different road districts,
and that some sections have been al almost
most almost entirely neglected. This is most
noticeable in the Plitchton district. In
our opinion, we believe the county con convicts
victs convicts ought to be kept on the roads in

the county and should be able to keep
them in first class condition at a very
small cost to the taxpayers of the
county. We also believe that our

county commissioners have lost sight
of the amount of indebtedness they

have banked up on our taxpayers

There seems to be a gradual increase
of indebtedness monthly which is now
around the sum of $14,971.83, exclusive
of the school fund indebtedness, and
think it is time to call a halt and re

duce this matter before making any

more, and now recommend this indebt

edness be reduced, as we find the road
funds are now overdrawn to the

amount of $88,875.23.

We also find that the county judge

and clerk of the court and commis

sioners have filed their reports for

this term.

Some figures were produced by a cit citizen
izen citizen of this county and were present presented
ed presented in such a manner as to lead the

grand Jury to believe that there exist

ed a shortage in the accounts of for

mer tax collector of this county. Act

ing upon this information, the grand
Jury caused Mr. Amos, state auditor, to
appear and Inform the Jury as to the

true state of affairs, and upon full In Investigation
vestigation Investigation it was found that the said
tax collector was not only not short in

his accounts, but that he had actually
overpaid in a small sum when he had
made settlement at the proper time

and the proper manner.

We cannot too strongly condemn the
practice of appearing before the grand

jury and by inuendos casting suspicion
upon the character of others, and in
this instance we have no hesitation in

saying that the charges or inuendos

were entirely without foundation

either In fact or in fancy.

In conclusion we desire to extend

our appreciation for all courtesies
shown us by the judge, state attorney

and other officers of the court, and re
spectfully ask to be discharged.

Annnal Report of aa Induatrloua ai
Uaefnl Organisation

Since the last annual report of the

Junior Civic League there have been

seven new members added to their

roll, making a total membership of

forty-six. The only work of import

ance done by them during the year has
been that for Comfort Lodge, such as
collecting pledges and paying for the

running expenses, adding necessary

articles from time to time and looking
after the lodge In general. The
amounts of the expense items are as

follows: Waiting maid and laundry to

gether. $10 monthly; water. $3.34 quar

terly. Soap and other toilet articles
are bought as needed and charged to
expense account, usually amounting to
about 50 cents. The monthly pledges
by the citizens amount to $23.50 at
The board of trade has pledged to
Comfort Lodge $100 per year. The
board has paid its pledge monthly up
to April 1, 1912. There were bills
against Comfort Lodge left over from
the equipment of the same amounting
to $37. The league has paid in small
amounts until now they owe only $12.
This, of course, has nothing to do with
the running expenses of the lodge.
The league received the following
items at the shower given on the day
of their program at the Woman's Club
on April 14th ult: Four roller towels,
six plain towels, one rug, two table tablecloths,
cloths, tablecloths, four small table covers, one
sheet and $2 In money was given,
which is to go to the playground fund.
Now. that school is out, work will

begin on their two playgrounds, the
one loaned by Colonel Martin and one
by Mr. E. P. Rentz.
Considering the many calls made on
our children's time and their close

confinement during the school term, we

must agree that they have done re- I

markably well, and holding together
with such loyalty and enthusiasm it
has been a pleasure to work with this

band of girls. I thank the club for the I

privilege of doing so. It is true, It is

not always easy work, for many times

the child and child's work helps to j
tide us on, and I feel that mine has I
been the most pleasant of any other j

committee work, and while I fully ap

preciate it, I do not want to appear

selfish in the matter. There are others

who are more competent than I to

manage this Junior Civic League.

some who would likely do more than I

have done- with them, for my time is
limited. I say this that you, as a club.

may think it over and our president
may know your wishes and be govern

ed accordingly as to the directorship
of our children. They are as fine a

body of girls as were ever banded to together

already surpassing many of us as re regards

official duties. Respectfully,
Mrs. J R. Moorhead.

words, an he reached back."
A grunt from the sheriff was the
only answer. He had heard that story
told so often in these shooting scrapes
that he was prepared for it. It is a
phrase that bobs up eternally In shoot shooting
ing shooting case3 and. with witnesses to sub sub-staniate
staniate sub-staniate it, It means "justifiable homi homicide"
cide" homicide" in the eyes of the majority of
juries in the gun toating districts.
And it was thus that Emmett Foster
died and his murderer was arrested.
When the pockets of the fallen man
were searched, it was found that they
contained no weapon of any kind. But
he had "reached back" so Dune Smith
said, which was taken to prove appar apparent
ent apparent danger for Smith and so Foster
had been sent crashing to meet his
Maker. For this i3 Texas justice.
Every week the red handed are being
turned loose on that same terrific plea.
And so it was that when Emmett
Foster's body was carried out to the
hill to he laid to rest. Dune Smith
stood on the corner watching the sad
little procession go by. and smiled, as
bad men smile. He had been turned
loose within four hours of the time
of his arrest, immediately upon having
a bond signed for this is Texas law.
When Emmett Foster had been laid
away and the little crowd of friends
that had gathered to remove their hats
and listen to the preacher speak the
last words of religion over the remains
of the departed, the widow and little
son of the dead man made their way
back in silence to their sorrowful
horn. While Mrs. Foster had grieved
fearfully over this terrible sorrow, it
was grief that was not permitted to
have outward sway, for such was not
her nature. A few hot tears were all

that she was seen to shed. She in indulged
dulged indulged in no hysterics. Her boy, just
fourteen years old, wept his heart out
for a day and the man who had been

both father and pal. At the grave

side the mind of Mrs. Foster had been

made up; she had arrived at a purpose
and It was not her way to postpone

the issue. She looked at the face of

her dead husband, at her grief-stricken
son, and there was no faltering from

that tlm.

When they entered their home they
refused all company, and for the next

hour, with her boy at her knee, his

yes brave and steady, she unfolded

the plan she had adopted at the grave
side, and he accepted it as the voice

of Providence doubting not the wis wisdom
dom wisdom of its directions.
News travels slowly In the country
districts, but it covers its ground well

and what one person tells all others

will know if it is of sufficient interest

to deserve the repetition.

And so the country side came to
know, within a few months of the

ueatn or bmmett poster, tnat young

Luke Foster, only son of the deceased

was the owner of a double barreled
shotgun that had been his father's
pride, and that he was being steadily

and constantly coached in its use. And
the story went that it was not rabbits
and birds that he practiced on, but
that he shot at tagets of his own de devising,
vising, devising, and that these targets were
most unusually like the shape of the
body of a man.
This news went the rounds in mighty
short time and six months after the
death of Emmett Foster, every man
and woman in the country round knew
that the widow of Emmett Foster was
training young Luke Foster to use a
shotgun. It was the world-old story of
'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for
a tooth," and the Widow Foster was
silently waiting for the day when her
boy would wipe out the blood debt.
Naturally this story came to the
ears of the gun man. Dune Smith.
Strange as it may seem, there are al always
ways always a dozen who will carry news to
a bad man where there is not one who
will do the same for ,a valuable citi citizen.
zen. citizen. Dune Smith laughed at the story,
but it was noticed that there was little
mirth in the laugh. A fifteen-year-old
boy did not look formidable to a
man with several notches on his gun,
and noted for his speed and accuracy
with a pistol. Still, It secretly troubled
him. .He feared no possible prowess
of the boy, but he did fear the spirit
of the Widow Foster. Being a moral
coward, but physically brave, as most
gun men are. the idea of a gun oppo opponent
nent opponent was not dreadful in the least,
even though that opponent might be
ever so formidable. It was the idea
of that lonely woman, sitting silently
in her little home and waiting for her
boy to clean the slate, that secretly
chilled him. He would not have con confessed
fessed confessed it to his friends, but it was
obvious to himself, and bothered him
more than he cared to own.
The Widow Foster was in no hurry.
She kept her boy at his practice, and
kept him always near her, while month
after month slipped by.
It was just a year after the death of
Emmett Foster, and the neighborhood
had practically forgotten the occur occurrence
rence occurrence in the light of more recent vio violent
lent violent affairs in which the .45 played its
usual prominent part, when affairs in
the lives of the principals of this story
reached a sudden focus. Turning a
corner in the village one day, the
Widow Foster collided with a man
coming the opposite way. and as she
reeled and he reached out to catch her,
she saw it was Dune Smith. She
caught her balance and struck up his
hand like a tigeress. He tried to meet
her eye. failed and went hurriedly on
his way. mounted his horse and rode
That evening word was brought to
him that half an hour after the col collision
lision collision on the street corner young Luke
Foster, astride a big family horse and
carrying a double barreled shotgun,
had ridden furiously through all the
village. peering into every public
place, and openly hunting someone.
Who that some one was, no one asked
but every one knew.
Then Dune Smith knew that the time
for waiting had passed. The village
folks must not see a half-grown boy
hunting for him with a shotgun, and
he immediately began his plans, with
no tremor of conscience.

"I can meet the brat and out-shoot
him." he said to himself. "P.ut that
won't do. After getting the old man
these rough-necks hereabouts wouldn't
like to see the boy shot. But, hell.
I can't stay here and dodge him, and
if I meet him I've got to shoot him
to save myself." Then a novel thought
struck him. 'I've got it." he cried
aloud, and began pacing the room ex excitedly;
citedly; excitedly; "If I meet him and let him
shoot first, and then get him. no one
could kick. That's it. I'll let him
shoot first."
It must not be supposed, however,
that Dune Smith intended letting Luke
Foster try a shot at him with a shot shotgun.
gun. shotgun. His plan was deeper than that.
He sent a messenger with word to old
Jim Thiel that he wanted to see him
at once. Twenty years before so
long that few in the community re remembered
membered remembered it Dune Foster had mar

ried Jim Thiel's sister. Smith had

and early death of Thiel's first wife.

and it appeared like an inspiration to

him when he thought of Thiel, for

Thiel worked for Widow Foster's ranch l

on shares.

Thiel received the message, and came. i

Foster had always bossed him, more

or less, and although Thiel had always j
resented it inwardly, he had usually

taken his orders. To Thiel Smith put
many questions, and received short answers.

"What does that cub mean?" he

"Business." replied Thiel.
"I'm bigger than him; I'll stop him,"
"The Old Master made some men big
and some strong," quoted Thiel; "he
made some little and some big; but
along came Mr. Colt and Mr. Win Winchester,
chester, Winchester, and made them all the same
Smith snorted.
"You best look out." Thiel advised
him. "That boy's seem' red."
"I'll see him first," retorted Smith
"Take keer he don't see ye first."
warned Thiel, with a glint in his eye.
"He ain't goin' to see me first," said
Smith savagely. "But I'm going to let
him shoot first
The other started.
" an' that's where you come in,"
added the gun man.
"Goin' to let him shoot first? Where
do I come in?" demanded the amazed
"I'm goin to explain that, so hush

your fuss while I make you savy. I'm

goin' to town this afternoon. You be
there when I come, an.' you ride out an'
tell the boy I'm there. Then you take
these two shells," producing them, "and
slip them into his gun. They are the
right gauge, an' they're marked "buck "buckshot."
shot." "buckshot." Then you let him come on to
town, an I'll look after the rest."
"I don't understand you," said Thiel
hesitatingly. "You goin' to let him
shoot you with those buck shot?"
"Fool; I've done took out the shot.
There's nothin but powder in them
shells. Savey now?"
"An what will you do after he
shoots? You aint aimin' to kill that
boy are you? I'd see you in hell first."
"Certainly not," was the reply. "You
know I couldn't afford to do that if I
wanted to. I aim to take his gun away
before he can reload again, and make
him promise not to try it no more.
Then I wont have to fool with him no
"Dune," said Thiel. "I like that boy,
an' I like his poor ma, an' I wouldn't
help hurt a hair of his head. But if
you sure ain't goin' to hurt him none,
I'll fix the gun like you say."
"Course I won't hurt him. Jim." said
the gun man: "but you know I can't
have him runnin' round with a shotgun
lookin" for me all the time. It don't
look right, and it ain't healthy. I want
to teach him a lesson, an' stop this
"All right," replied the apparently
satisfied Thiel; "I'll be in town about
three o'clock. You come in. an" I'll
ride out an' set the boy after you, first
fixin' the gun. But don't hurt that

"Simple jackass," spluttered the gun

thing I'm goin' to have that tiger cub
doggin' me always? I knew I'd have
to work that lie to get him to fix the
shell?. No one else has a chance to."
"The damned murderer," muttered
Thiel to himself as he rode off. "Don't
he think I can see through him? But
I'll fix the gun, cause I said I would."
And he chuckled: "Yes, by G-d. I'll
fix the gun."
The gun man chafed somewhat as he
stood in the village street exchanging
sundry remarks with acquaintances,
and waiting for the appearance of the
boy. He had seen Thiel ride away
twenty minutes before, and young
Luke Foster was about due if he rode
in as hurriedly as he expected. His
plan looked good. The boy would fire
at him, apparently miss; he would an answer
swer answer the first of the shotgun with one
carefully placed bullet from his pistol,
and the incident would be closed. He
reckoned on the good effect of letting

his case, first with the towns people,
and second with the jury. It is the
written and unwritten law of the
Southwest that no man need stand un under

not like it, they would be forced to
admit it justifiable. The whole thing
would11 be looked upon as a regrettable
but unavoidable tragedy, and would
end there. And besides the gun man
would be held a braver man than ever
before for standing up in the face of
a shotgun fire. So he noped to gain
laurels by the killing of the Foster

he could put a ball between the eyes

experience told him that he could have

the wild feeling came over him to
throw policy to the winds and shoot
quick and straight. It was only for the
smallest instant, however, and then he
had control of his nerves, and was
steadfast in his original plan. All this
required but a fraction of a minute.
Those who were watching this deadly
game from the sides of the street, saw
nothing of this play on the gun man's
features. They saw only the swift,
sure action of the boy in the handling
of the gun.
They saw him aim quick as a flash,
his dark eyes glancing from his white,
boyish face, as he saw the face of his
