OXE OP THE WORST
One of the greatest evils that afflicts
towns and cities .s the almost uiver uiver-sal
sal uiver-sal practice of selling liquor in the red red-light
light red-light resorts.
It Is maintained by many men who
are neither -vicious nor dissipated that
these resorts are a necessary evil, and
that their entire suppression would
lead to more trouble than they make.
While this may be true, it would be
difficult to And any unprejudiced and
well informed -person who could argue
that selling liquor in these joints
was anything but incentive to evil,
and that entirely unnecessary.
All these 'resorts in wh'ch liquor. Is
sold are practically blind tigers, and
the evidence Is always plain. It
is very little trouble to secure the evi-J
dence and punish the offenders.
A determined and sustained policy
of punishing the people who run these
blind tigers would save more young
men from ruin than shutting tip all
the barrooms In the country. It would
also greatly increase the probability of
reclaiming wayward girls, whose physi physical
cal physical and moral deterioration in these
resorts Is greatly increased "by the
task set them of inducing the men to
buy-as many drinks as possible.
PRIZES AT CARD PARTIES
As there has been great denuncia
tion lately of the custom of giving
prizes at card parties, which custom
Is denounced by many as open gambl gambling,
ing, gambling, it Is not out of place to publish
the following, from, the Rome, Ga.,
Tribune Herald, as the other side of
Already it seems that the subject of
"playing cards for prizes,' has become
threadbare by the continual discussion
of people Indulging in. card parties.
Many of the critics do not attend them
and lots of others do not even under
stand thecircumstances under which
a young lady may secure a prize at a
For the benefit of these, the writ
er will endeavor to explain why It Is
Impossible to gamble at the card ta
ble at afternoon affairs.
When a hostess invites her friends
for a pleasant afternoon in her home
the guests does not immediately be begin
gin begin to play how she may secure her
prize. Instead her anticipations are
of cheery, prettily decorated rooms
smartly clad friends, with whom to
chat for-"" awhile, and a card table
with a pleasant game to avoid mo
jnotony, which would otherwise often
exist at large formal parties. When a
guest seats herself at a card table, she
has no way of knowing whether the
hostess will give a prize for the
top score, or not. Often the hostess
will announce at the conclusion of the
games, "Well, you all played so well
I decided It would not be fair for only
one guest to secure a prize, and I
could not furnish one for all, I decided
to dispense with it." On the other
hand, she may give one. Of course
It would !e an Impossibility to gamble
with nothing in view to win.
Sometimes, to add zest and ardor
to a game, the hostess may have a
simple jabot or a small 25-qent
hyacinth in a pot, or the much much-abcsedsilk
abcsedsilk much-abcsedsilk nose, whicn' she offers to
the one scoring the highest. At other
times there Is no prize for top score;
and the honoree of the occasion, if
there be one, will be presented with a
dainty hand-painted plate or water
color sketch, work of the hostess,
as a personal remembrance to her,
Often as not, there is a' pair of silk
hose given for the lady scoring the
highest, and also a pair presented the
player making the lowest .score. How
then could one who played her best
but received the lowest count of any
guest present, thereby receiving a
prize, be termed a gambler?
The word "garnble" cannot, be ap applied
plied applied to any game unless there be a
loser as well as a winner. In a social
card game, no player loses the value
of the prize, therefore she cannot be
A clever hostess, thoughtful in her
planning, will often offer prizes in
keeping with her decorative scheme.
When pink carnations are used as
lavish decorations, a bouquet of the
pretty flowers is given as a souvenir
of the event. If the decorations are
in Jonquils very often a hostess will
present for top score a dainty basket
filled with the pretty yellow blooms,
In keeping with her refreshments,
which may all be In yellow, and even
her Ices frozen in shape of jonquils.
This merely goes to show that prizes
are often a suggestion of the party
How simple is the little game of
"pinning on the donkey's tall," which
we have all known as children. Prob Probably
ably Probably the one who is luck'est is the most
surprised of all to know he. wins a
prize for pinning it on correctly,
while blindfolded. The same rule
governs a pleasant card game among
ladies. No one knows who has scored
highest until a final count is made
after the game and often as not the
surprized winner will very graciously
present her trophy t othe honor
guest of the afternoon, in case the
hostess has no keepsake for her.
The gift presented the honoree is
not in a true sense of the word a
prize, but is called a guest-prize,
which, means that the honor guest has
been especially remembered by her
hostess. How often have we known
of little children laboring to their
utmost to stand at the head of their
spelling match in order to obtain a
prize offered by the teacher. Again,
we hear of the little tot who never
fails to attend Sunday school and
makes a special effort to be prompt
each Sunday, all with one aim, and
that. a prize.
How many card parties have been
given in Rome that the writer knows
of, and still not one among the guests
have ever shown any ugly spirit "; at
losing during the afternoon, and never
as a real fact do Rome ladies disagree
unpleasantly over their cards. The
loser's only sorrow at ner bad luck is
in holding back the score of her part partner.

most cheerful manners are displayed
by all guests at card parties in Rome,

pleasing ways, as real ladies should.

SHOULD HAVE MORE POWER
Marion county's two representatives
to the legislature are in favor of giv
Ing the Florida railroad commission
more power, and the people of the
other counties should insist that their
representatives work on the same line
as thoss from Marlon.
Much obloquy i3 cast on the railroad
commission by various papers in the
state, some not aware of the disad
vantage under which the commission
labors, other sneering maliciously in
hope of fooling the people into having
the commission abolished altogether,
While the commission,, though not ex
actly tied to a post, has a heavy block
and chain on It, it is enough of a
watchdog to make the railroads wish
someone would knock It in the head
or throw it a piece of poisoned steak.
It helps the Interests of the people
some, and It would help more if It had
The truth of the matter is that the
railroad commission, instead of having
to go Into court with the railroads,
should be a court itself. The legisla
ture should make it a tribunal with
the power equal to that of circuit
courts and its decisions should not he
subject to reversal by any but the
supreme court of the state. The present
railroad commission is made up of men
who know what is just for the peo
pie and just for the Tailroads. When
they make decisions that the rail
roads do not like, (and the, railroads
do not like any of them) they are
slowly and grudgingly complied with
or openly disregarded until the com
mission has to go into the courts. As
the railroads have unlimited means
they can hire the best lawyers, and
often either defeat the commission on
technicalities or delay the settlement
of a case for years.
The Dominion of Canada has a rail
road commission which has the powers
of a court. When it issues an OTder
to the. railroads, the order Is obeyed.
The railroads of Canada are doing far
more in proportion for the people than
the Tailroads of the United States are
doing. At the same time, the railroads
of Canada are doing well by themselves
and rapidly developing their country. It
always pays to do the square thing by
the people, but the corporations are
not going to do it until they are com
pelled to. The quicker the work of
compelling begins, the better for all
The Wilson administration will be

MAY HAVE A PLACE
ON THE FAIR SIlDWAY
Mr. Nat Reiss thinks it Is likely that
his big carnival, after making Its
summer trip,- will return to Florida In
time to make one of the amusements at
the Marion County Fair.
It will be remembered that the
amusements at the last fair were few,
and also that the crowds were rather
slim. There is a lesson in this, for
no matter how much people need to be
Instructed, they want to be amused.
Everybody who has seen it can cer
tify that the Reiss shows can play a
strong card in the amusement game,
so it might be a good idea for the fair
management to have an -understanding
with Mr. Reiss before he leaves.
Monday night is notoriously a bad
night for amusements, and a storm
threatened last night; notwithstand notwithstanding,
ing, notwithstanding, there was a very good crowd on
the carnival grounds and the people
had lots of fun.

The department hurried out with the

Street .wing, where smoke was seen
pouring out of the front of the store
occupied by Mr. C. U. Gaines. The
firemen broke the door in and found the
place in flames, with a stifling, smoke
filling the place. By getting down
close to the floor, they were able to
breathe while they took in the hose

over the room. The fire was soon out,
but it was a long time before the dense

Messrs. Harley & Brother, was filled
with smoke but no damage was done

formerly connected by a big arch
door, and this was only closed by a
wooden partition, which did not- fit
very well at the top, and allowed the
smoke to pour through.

the store up, and left but were called
back at 5 o'clock this morning, the fire
having again broken out. where it had
seemingly been smouldering, and done

$8,500. worth of goods and had sold
