SALLOW COMPLEXION comes from bilious

impurities in the blood, and the fault lies with the
liver. It is torpid.
Is the Rrcatest of nil liver medicines. Its powerful purifying and
strengthening influence is at once apparent in an improved appetite,
good digestion and a feeling of strength and energy in the body.
When the system has been put in order the yellow cast in the skin
gradually disappears and the complexion becomes clear and healthy.

Marlon Brilliant Young Representa Representative
tive Representative Elect Cilvew III Opinion on
eeiletl LeKllatlon
In pursuance of your request for my
view.s In regard to necled legislation.
I take pleasure in outlining for yoi
in a general way some of the thinr.-i
which I conceive to he important to
the welfare anil progress 0f our tate.
I favor a constitutional convention
for the purposi of generally revising
our preservt con.stitution. Our present
constitution, adopted over twenty twenty-five
five twenty-five years auo, seems to m to le in
many respects inadequate and obso obsolete,
lete, obsolete, in view of th' progress of our
state anil the country at
Changes therein that are most needed
are changes In the articles relating to
the judiciary; to suffrage and eligibil eligibility;
ity; eligibility; to taxation ami finance: home homesteads
steads homesteads and exemptions ; married wom women's
en's women's property, and education. In ad addition
dition addition to this there are many new
sections and articles that the people
should have a risht to add to the con constitution
stitution constitution if they so desire. Some of
the ehanses necessary In the judiciary
department are. brietly:
All judges and the states' attorney
should be elected by a direct vote of
the people; the power of the justices
of the peace should be greatly re
stricted and the office of county judsre
should be held only by ai attorney-at-law.
The constitution says in the ar article
ticle article relating to census and appor
tionment that the House of Represen
tatives shall be compose'! of not more
than sixty-eiRht members; there were
seventy members in the House in 1911.
It declares that an apportionment of
the representation in the Senate and
House shall be made every ten years.
To illustrate the injustice of this,
Marion and Sumter counties have one
senator together with a total popula
tion of about 40,000, while Iake coun county,
ty, county, with a population of about 10.000.
has one senator alone. I'nder the con constitution,
stitution, constitution, it will probably be neces necessary
sary necessary to wait until 1917 before these
injustices can be remedied, and if the
legislature at that time should fail to
make the necessary apportionment it
would be necessary to wait another
ten years. Cities should be given ab absolute
solute absolute home rule. The homestead and
exemption article should be changed
at least to such an extent as would
allow a person to waive his constitu constitutional
tional constitutional exemptions if he so desires.
Married women and their property
should be placed upon an equal foot
ing before the law with married men
and their property. The article upon
suffrage and eligibility should be
changed so as to give suffrage as far
as possible to the white people of the
state only. The articles relating to
taxation and finance and to education
should be greatly revised.
I favor the establishment of a state
detective bureau and a change in the
method of the selection of jurors. The
evils resulting from the present Jury
system lie largely in the method of
the selection of jurors. I favor a jury
commission for each county recom
mended by the circuit judge and ap
pointed by the governor whose duty it
will be to select the panels. I favor a
repeal of the law which gives to the
defendant the right to demand and
secure the panel of jurors In a case
of felony before his trial. I favor the
abolition of the present fee system. I
favor a law which will effectively
abolish technicalities and which will
give to the supreme court the right to
adjudicate certain classes of appealed
civil eases where such can be done in
stead of reversing them. I favor
the adoption of the national constitu constitutional
tional constitutional amendments providing for the
direct election of United States sena
tors and an income tax. I favor the
extension of the supposed state de department
partment department of agriculture so as to make
it a vital and useful department to
the agricultural interests of the state.
I favor the betterment of our public
school system and the enlargement of
the present curriculum to the extent
of making the public schools institu institutions
tions institutions which will equip the children for
practical citizenship. In at least one
high school in every county there
should be agricultural, manual train
ing, business and domestic science de departments.
partments. departments. I favor a compulsory edu educational
cational educational law. I favor the abolition of
the present convict lease system with
safety to the finances of the state and
the building of a state sytsem of hard
roads. I favor a law which will ef effectively
fectively effectively prevent the practice of medi medicine
cine medicine by quacks; also an extremely
rigid enforcement of effective pure
food laws.
The question of the solution of in inequalities
equalities inequalities in our system of taxation is
too large for a discussion here. The
probable solution, however. I believe
to be the complete separation of the
state and eourty system of taxation.
In conclusion, I heartily oppose the
passage of countless local laws where
the end sought for can be as well ob obtained
tained obtained by general laws. I oppose all
special legislation and favor the re repeal
peal repeal of those laws upon our statute
books that have become dead letters,
likewise do I oppose the enactment of
numerous laws which at the time of
their passage the members of the
legislature, as well as everyone else,
know will not be enforced. "He who
governs least governs best' and the
fewer laws that are enacted by the
state, especially those regulating per personal
sonal personal conduct, the happier and the
more prosperous will be the citizens
of that state. Too much law Is worse
than too little law and I shall advo advocate
cate advocate only those laws which I believe
to be for the general welfare and
progress of the state at large.

Entered in the postofflce at Ocala,
Fla., as srcond class mail matter.
One of the good things about living
in Ocala is that it is so easy to so to
Lake Weir, and that you can have
such a pleasant time when you arrive
at that brightest of inter-marine gems.
When an Ocalan goes to Lake Weir on
a Sunday afternoon, and sees the fa familiar
miliar familiar faces at the railroad stations,
and sees others and still others and
yet others at almost every lakeside
cottage or in every motorboat, he won wonders
ders wonders if there Is anybody left in Ocala,
and after he has begun to comprehend
the attractions of the lake he wonders
why in the deuce anybody stays In the
city, anyhow. Such was the ideas of
the writer as he sat on the piazza of
Mr. C, E. Connor's pleasant home at
Northlake Sunday afternoon and look
ed out thru the branches of the live
oaks over the sheet of water that for
beauty and healthfulness can't be ex excelled
celled excelled In America or equalled in any
other part of the world.
North Lake Weir was the first sec

and on account of its being most ac accessible
cessible accessible to Ocalans who own autos It
is beginning to look so much like
street In the city that one can hardly
realize that over fifteen miles of coun

Once upon a time, not a few pictur

lake, but the motor boat has displaced
the windjammer, and the water 13 al

Nearly all the lake shore was made
to order for a bathing place sloping
out gently, it makes the healthful rec
reation safe and pleasant for the tod

for the person at home in the water.
Mr. Connor differs from most of the
Ocala-lake commuters; he has removed
his home bodily to the lake, and tho
business keeps him In the city most of
his days, he finds that he saves money
and enjoys life by the change. Cer Certainly,

Ideal dwelling place far cooler In the
summer time and not so bleak In the
winter, with abundance of pure, soft
water a lakeside residence has solid

Next to Mr. Connor's residence on
the north are his two cottages al always
ways always in demand for house parties. Dr.
II. C. Dozler and Dr. E. G. reek and
their families now have one and Mr.
and Mrs. II. M. Hampton the other.
Both are elegant little homes and are
engaged months in advance. Further
along are the homes of Messrs. Ty Ty-dlngs,

Mr. N. W. Harrison, to the east of Mr.
Connor, has a garage big and solid
enough for a city auto shop, and a
pretty cottage, two-thirds of which is

well as unique.
If this scribe ever becomes rich, he
is going to build a home at Lake Weir,
meantime, he is going there as often
as opportunity occurs.

Its the Star's opinion that the only
way for Ocala to have summer band

other cities, so why not in Ocala. We
hear it said that it would be impossi impossible

contempt was intensified Into a fierce
intolerance which would have been
terrifying if it had not been tempered
with an indifferent disdain.
Rose's attitude toward her brother
was a source of secret wonder to him.
She loved the feeble youth; a tie of
the deepest affection existed between
them, upon which Gene's Intemperance
seemed to have no effect. The Bonan Bonanza
za Bonanza King had always admitted that the
ways of the gentler sex were beyond
his comprehension, but that the two
women he had known best his wife
and his daughter should have lav lavished
ished lavished the tenderest love upon an in
temperate, incompetent, useless weak weakling
ling weakling was to him one of the fathomless
mysteries of life.
It was Rose's suggestion that Gene
should be withdrawn from temptation
by sending him to the country. As
the only son of Bill Cannon he was
the object of a variety of attentions
and allurements in the city to which
a stronger-willed man might have suc succumbed.
cumbed. succumbed. The father readily agreed to
the plan. He could graciously sub subscribe
scribe subscribe to all Rose said, as the removal
of Gene's amiable visage and unin uninspired
spired uninspired conversation would not causa
him any particular distress or sense
of loss.
But "when Rose unfolded the whole
of her scheme he was not so enthu enthusiastically
siastically enthusiastically in accord with her. It was
that Gene should be put on his father's
ranch the historic Rancho of the
Santa Trinidad near San Luis Obispo
as manager, that all responsibility
should be placed in his hands, and
that if, during one year's probation,
he should remain sober and maintain
a record of quiet conduct and general
good behavior, the ranch should be
turned over to him as his own prop property,
erty, property, to be developed on such lines as
he thought best.
The Rancho of the Santa Trinidad
was one of the finest pieces of agri agricultural
cultural agricultural property in California. The
Bonanza King visited it once a year,
and at Intervals received crates of
fruit and spring chickens raised upon
it. This was about all he got out
of It, but when he heard Rose calmly
arranging, to have it become Gene's
property, he felt like a man who sud suddenly
denly suddenly finds himself being robbed. He
had difficulty in restraining a roar
of refusal. Had it been any one but
Rose he would not have restrained it.
Of course he gave way to her, as he
always did. He even gave way grace gracefully
fully gracefully with an effect of a generosity too
large to bother over trifles, not be because
cause because he felt it but because he did
not want Rose to guess how it "went
against him." Under the genial bland bland-ness
ness bland-ness of his demeanor he reconciled
himself to the situation by the thought
that Gene would certainly never keep
sober for a year, and that there was
therefore no fear of the richest piece
of land in the state passing into the
hands of that dull and incapable
young man.
The year was nearly up now. It
had but three months to run and
Gene's record had been exemplary.
He had come to the city only twice,
when his father noticed with a jealously-watchful
eye that he had been
resolutely abstemious in the matter of
liquor and that his Interest in the
great property he managed had been
the strongest he had so far evinced in
anything. The thought that Gene
might possibly live up to his side of
the bargain and win the ranch caused
the old man to experience that feeling
of blank chagrin which is the state of
mind of the unexpectedly swindled.
He felt like a king who has been dar daringly
ingly daringly and successfully robbed by a
At dinner that evening Gene was
very talkative. He told of his life on
the ranch, of its methodical monot monotony,
ony, monotony, of its seclusion, for he saw little
of his neighbors and seldom went in
to the town. Rose listened with eager
interest, and the old man with a sulky,
glowering attention. At intervals he
shot a piercing look at his boy, eying
him sidewise with a cogitating intent intent-ness
ness intent-ness of observation. His remarks
were few, but Gene was so loquacious
that there was little opportunity for
another voice to be heard. He prat prattled
tled prattled on like a happy child, recounting
the minutest details of his life after
the fashion of those who live much
In the light of the crystal lamp that
spread a ruffled shade of yellow silk
over the center of the table, he was
seen to be quite unlike his father or
Bister. His Jet-black hair and uniform uniformly
ly uniformly pale skin resembled his mother's,
but his face in Its full, rounded con contours,
tours, contours, slightly turned-up nose, and
eyebrows as thick as strips of fur,
had a heaviness hers had lacked.
Some people thought him good-looking,
and there was a sort of unusual, Latin
picturesqueness in the combination of
his curly black hair, which he wore
rising up in a bulwark of waves from
his forehead, his white skin, and the
small, dark mustache, delicate as an
eyebrow, that shaded his upper Hp. It
was- one of his father's grievances


against him that he would have made
a pretty girl, and that his soft, affec affectionate
tionate affectionate character would have been
quite charming In a woman. Now,
listening to him, it seemed to the
older man as if it were just the kind
of talk one might expect from Gene.
The father had difficulty In suppress suppressing
ing suppressing a snort of derision when he heard
the young man recounting to Rose his
troubles with his Chinese cook.
Before dinner was over Gene ex excused
cused excused himself on the plea that he was
going to the theater.
"I'm such a hayseed now," he said
as he rose, "that I don't want to miss

Cabin," "East Lynne." I'm not par particular,

harm's way. The boys in San Luis
don't understand and I'm not going to
put myself in the way of temptation.
You know, father, I want that ranch."
He turned a laughing glance on his
father; and the old man, with a sheepishly-discomfited
expression, grunted
an unintelligible reply and bent over
his plate.
He did not raise his head till Gene
had left, the room, when, looking up,
he leaned back in his chair and said
with a plaintive Blgh:
"What a damned fool that boy Is!"
Rose was up in arms at once.
"Why, papa, how can you say that!

not been drinking, he takes such an
interest In everything and is so full
of work and plans."
"Is he?" said her father dryly.
"Maybe so, but that don't prevent him
from being a damned fool."
"You're unjust to Gene. Why do
you think he's a fool?"
"Just because he happens to be one.
You might as well ask me why I think

could give most men cards and spades
and beat 'em hands down. Last night
at Rocky Bar they were telling me
that she's written to the operator there
and told him she'll get him a posi

Cable Company, in which she's a large
stockholder, that'll double his salary
and give him a chance he'd never
have got in this world. She wants to
pay off a mortgage on a ranch Perley
has in the Sacramento Valley and
she's sent Mrs. Perley a check for
five hundred dollars. She's offered
Willoughby a first-rate job on the Red
Calumet group of mines near Sonora
in which Con had a controlling inter interest,
est, interest, and she's written to the doctor to
come down and become one of the
house physicians of the St. Filomena
Hospital, which she practically runs.
She's ready to do all this because of
what they did for Dominick, and yet
she, his own mother, won't give the
boy a cent and keeps him on starva-i
tion wages, just because she wants to
spite his wife."
He looked at his daughter across
the table with narrowed eyes. "What
have you got to say for yourself after
that, young woman?" he demanded.
Rose bad evidently nothing to say.
She raised her eyebrows and shook
her head by way of reply. Her face,
in the flood of lamplight, looked pale
and tired. She was evidently distrait
and depressed; a very different-looking
Rose from the girl he had taken
away with him four weeks earlier.
He regarded her for an anxiously-contemplative
moment and then said:
"What's the matter? Seems to me
you look sort'er peaked."
"I?" she queried with a surprised
start. "Why, I'm quite well."
"Well's you were before you went
up to the mines?"
A color came into her cheeks and
she lowered her eyes:
"I'm a little tired, I think, and that
always makes me look pale. It was
a hard sort of trip, all those hours in
the sleigh, and that hotel at Rocky
Rar was a dreadful place. I couldn't
sleep. There was a cow somewhere
near it sounded as if it were in the
next room and the roosters all be began
gan began to crow in the middle of the night.
I'll be all right to-morrow."
Her father drew his coffee-cup
toward him and dropped in a lump of
sugar. No word had passed between
him and his daughter as to the scene
he had witnessed two days before in
the parlor of Perley's Hotel. She was
Ignorant of the fact that he had seen
it and he intended that she should re remain
main remain ignorant of it. But the next
morning he had had an interview with
Dominick Ryan, in which the young
man, confronted with angry questions
and goaded past reserve by shame and
pain, had confessed the misery of his
marriage and the love that in an un unguarded
guarded unguarded moment had slipped beyond
his control.
Cannon had said little to him. Be Beyond
yond Beyond telling him that he must not
see Miss Cannon again, his comments
on Dominlck's confessions had been

his business to preach to Delia Ry Ryan's

men had given him a practically lim limitless

Dominick Ryan a sentiment she had

It was not his habit to waste time and
force in the indulgence of profitless
anger. The thing had happened.
Rose, who had been courted many
times and never warmed to more than
pity for her unsuccessful suitors, had
suddenly, by a fateful, unpremeditated
