It was shortly after 6 o'clock that
the Wright machine was run out in

several days Aviator Welch, whose

In the death of Professor Green. The
Star mourns him as a personal friend,
and loins his relatives in sorrow at
their loss.
While the Star doesn't think the
Tampa Times has been fair toward
Congressman-elect L'Engle. it entirely
agrees with the sentiment expressed In
the following paragraph:
We have only this to say; that we
treated! this matter as we do all pub
lie questions that come up for discus discussion
sion discussion we expressed the views that
seemed to us right regardless of their
probable reception."
The Star can appreciate the above
the more fully from the fact that it is
built somewhat that way itself. An
outspoken man or newspaper is al always
ways always of more value than one that
trims his or its sails to every wind
that blows.
Criminals fare better in this country

The Star begs to disagree with the

that price.

A Goow Tale Written by Mother G.
a Hobble Skirt
There was a modern man,
And he worshipped modern guile.
He found a modern maiden
And they wed in modern style.
They sought a. modern agent.
And they looked at this and that.
Till they went and lived together
In a little modern flat.
He had a modern office,
Where he used to sit and grub.
And he went there every morning
In a very modern "sub."
He had a modern choice between
The ceiling and the lap.
So he read his modern paper
While he clutched a modern strap.
He spent his modern evenings
In a manner most concise;
At times a modern theater
That charged a modern price,
And, after that, a restaurant
Palatial, modern, new,
With a cabaret attachment
That was very modern too.
He watched the modern dances.
With a modern sense of guilt.
Nor knew the buch-men danced them
Ere the pyramids were built.
Then home within a taxi,
Over modern pavements vile,
Behind a meter, clicking out
A short and modern mile.
But modern overeating
Wrecked his very modern frame.
And the modern doctors called it
By a long and modern name.
So they laid him on a table,
Wifh a modern surgeon's glee.
And performed a modern stabbing
For a juicy modern fee.
Unhappily, his vitals
Didn't rally as they ought,
And so a modern casket
And a modern tomb were bought.
And his charming modern widow
Gently whispered, neath her breath.
To say 'twas so consoling
That he died a modern death.

We have adopted the Cash System

protect the person who wants to beat
his grocer, and discriminate against
the merchant. Under this system the
good customers have to pay for the
debts of the bad ones. There are a
number of people about the country
who beat the grocers, in spite of all
they can do. They put up a plausible
story and get credit and do not pay.

mediately immediately it subsided and -stubbornly
it refused to lift again and waft him
forth upon his wanderings, In the
course of time came to be a matter of
grievous concern to the Irishman.
All of which is equivalent to saying
that the dropping breeze of. his
finances died altogether upon his
arrival in the capital of Greece. He
disembarked from a coasting steamer
in the harbor of the Piraeus encum encumbered
bered encumbered with a hundred francs or so, an
invincible optimism, a trunk and a
kit-box, and a king's ransom on his
person In the shape of the Pool of
Flame; which latter was hardly to
be esteemed a negotiable asset. There Thereafter
after Thereafter followed days of inaction, while'
his hopes diminished.
Nearly two months had elapsed
since he had promised two people
himself and one infinitely more dear
to him to be In Rangoon in ninety
days. In little more than a month
she'd be waiting for him there. .
And where would he be? Still was
he far by many a long and weary
mile from the first gateway to the
East Suez; and still he lacked many
an aloof and distant dollar the funds
to finance him thither.
If only he could contrive to get to
Alexandria Danny was there

half partner in a tobacco Importing
house, by virtue of money borrowed
from O'Rourke long since, at a time
when money was to be had of the
man for the asking. . And
Danny would help. .
You must see O'Rourke revolving In
his mind this unhappy predicament of
his, on the last of the many afternoons
that he spent in Greece. Draw down
the corners of his wide, mobile mouth,
stir up the devils in his eyes until
they flicker and flash their resentment,
place a pucker between the brows of
his habitually serene and unwrinkled
forehead; and there you have him

Now Just as the sun was sinking be behind

clothing its long slopes in vague violet

this view alone O'Rourke took himself
to the Zappeion daily) the Irishman's
somber meditations were interrupted.

voice, not two feet from his ear.

He showed himself a man in stature

to height; and perhaps he was a
stone the heavier of the two. He

and beefy build. The eyes that met
O'Rourke's were gray and bright and
hard, and set in a countenance flam flaming

His dress was rough, and there was

which dangled the stout cord by
