FAITHFUL TO THE VERV LAST
The Times-Union pays the following
tribute to Edward Lt Ditto, who was
laid to his last rest in Evergreen Ceme Cemetery
tery Cemetery in Jacksonville, Wednesday after afternoon:
noon: afternoon: All that i3 mortal of Edward L. Ditto,
veteran telegraph operator, a man who
has seen every side of the service in
railroad circles and last to surrender
before adversaries, was laid to Te3t yes
terday afternoon In Evergreen ceme
tery at 4 o'clock. Paralysis was the
only enemy that Ed, Ditto ever knew
It tried to make him flee from a tele
graph key but no fear came even to
the last day of surrender.
Once upon a time, a decade ago, a
railway train was running along. The
little instrument before the old hero
was clicking off orders for the train.
Stealthily then paralysis came into
the little office at Fort Lauderdale and
seised him. He fell back but held
tenaciously to his consciousness. With
a last bound, he caught the signalling
lever and gave the train crew "the
Nobody came forward with the orders
when the train stopped and the train
men wondered, who about the place
happened to be so slow. In the tele
graph office a member of the crew
found Ed. Ditto, partially conscious,
his right hand dead but the train
orders in place before him.
Plied Key Twenty-one Years
Over twenty-one years he plied the
key. When his Tight side was paralyz
ed, he learned how to operate a key
with his left hand. Again paralysis
came his way but he battled and insist insisted
ed insisted that he be allowed to work again
He worked in the face of it all-after
partially recovering and when the last
stroke came Thursday, half conscious
and half unconscious he boarded a
train 400 miles down the East Coast
and traveled to St. Augustine.
A nurse In the Florida East Coast
railway hospital saw an ill man seat
ed in the reception room Saturday
morning. She reported the case to Dr.
Gaines Worley, the veteran head of
that institution. lie went into the re
ception room and recognized Edward
Ditto, his old patient of a decade be
fore.' "I have treaed him, not as a
patient, but as a friend," said the ven
erable doctor when he looked upon
the mute form Monday night at 11
o'clock. Just after the end came.
Worked In Tampa
The career of Edward L. Ditto begun
in 1892 and later In Florida with a job
on the old Plant System in 1901 at
Mcintosh. In the congestion near
Tampa during the Spanish-American
war, when transports and supplies
' were being hurried to Cuba, Ditto was
sent to that part of the state to aid in
handling the dispatching end of the
railroad's part of the war.
He was for many years "relief man'
with the Florida East Coast Railway. A
common remark passed here and there
was that Ditto had no enemies. At one
time he was assistant dispatcher in
Jacksonville. After paralysis affile
tlons came he was placed in charge of
Installing new offices for the Florida
East railway system. Then he was
given the telephone part of the work.
i Railway officials often criticized him
for not letting up on work and going
to his home in Ocala, where another
pursuit could be followed. He found
more satisfaction with railroading,
however, and this was his last work.
His wife and two sons, his mother
Mrs. I A. Ditto, sister, Mrs. George
Driver of Birmingham, and three
brothers, F. W. Ditto of Ocala, S. I
and It. vv Ditto of Jacksonville, were
gathered about his bedside when the
end came In St. Augustine Monday
night at 11 o'clock.
Funeral services were held at 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon from the
parlors of Marcus Conant, the Rev
I. W. Carpenter, of the First Methodist
ehurch, officiating. The Interment was
In the family lot In Evergreen ceme
It is a great pity that everybody
can't read the expose of quack spec
ialists and some other papers in a
recent number of the journal of the
American Medical Association. If
such exposes were printed in the
newspapers as well as medical journ journals
als journals there would soon be an end of the
evil. The average American man or
woman knows that Individuality en enters
ters enters Into medical treatment, and that
the responsible home physician, who
is acquainted with his subject. Is far
more competent to treat a patient than
a visitor, however skilled. On the
other hand, he has no guarantee that
the peripatetic specialist knows any
more about medicine and surgery than
he does about his own particular
case. Merit should always win, and
it generally does In the long run, but
many .people's lives run short, es especially
pecially especially when they are sick and blind blindly
ly blindly and impatiently floundering around
for Telief. One reason why quacks
and fakes flourish Is because they ad advertise,
vertise, advertise, and thelc advertisements catch
the uninformed and unwary. The medi medical
cal medical profession considers it beneath Its
dignity to advertise, and the Star
couldn't advise it to enter Into any
competition with fakes and fokirs
There is one thing, however, that the
American Medical Association might
do that would be of great service to
the public and Itself. It might show
up In the newspaper press, as it does
In Its own journals, all the frauds that
afflict the medical profession. Quack
doctors and manufacturers of quack
medicines have money to burn, and no
scruples however, a few. words from a
physician of established reputation
have much weight in the community
where he Is known. The Star thinks
that if the medical profession started
out on an organized campaign of ex exposing
posing exposing fakes. It would find that the
press was willing to do its share.
. A Chicago missionary, whose mission
was the reformation of criminals, took
his wife to the prisons with him in
the hope that she would be able to help
him to Influence evil doers to lead bet better
ter better lives. She has just quit him and
their five children for a burglar on
whom her influence was exercised.

SOUTH AMERICANS ARE SENSIBLE
The study of Latin virtually has been
abolished In the secondary schools of
Latin-America, according to Dr. Edgar
E. Brandon of the United States bu bureau
reau bureau of education, who has issued a
bulletin on an extensive Investigation
of the schools and colleges of the
Latin-American republics. Dr. Bran

that T.alin is out of place in modern
life, and he has thrown It aside In
favor of the live languages.

fftmte President VUIJI to the Oeala
Miss Minnie E. Neal, state presi
dent of the Womans' Christian Temper
ance Union, spoke to an interested
audience at the Methodist church on the
work which the state organization
has undertaken for the year.
MIs Xeal described as her "pet
work, the W. C. T. U. school of instruc
tion in department work which has
been organized and will be conducted
by Dr. and Mrs. Stevens in Gainesville
during the month of June. She also
spoke of the missionary work that is
being done in the larger c'ties by pay
ing a missionary to meet trains and
boats and direct unprotected women to
places of safety. She touched upon
different Tnes of work which .should
be more strongly emphasized and
dwelt at length upon the coming cam
paign, the plans for which have al
ready been laid by the local union.
The petition from the Equal Fran
chise League of Jacksonville, which
was presented at the last regular meet meeting
ing meeting was again considered and en
dorsed by Mis3 Neal.
At the close of the meeting a num

Lake Wier, March 12--The most In
teresting and enjoyable event of the
week was an excursion and picnic
supper given on the "Biliken" by
Mrs. Kate Poindexter and daughter
Mrs. Blnns, of Nashville, complimen
tary to Mrs. E. L. Carney, Mrs. Beulah
Mims, Mrs. Carney MIms and Mrs
Hampton of Oeala, who motored down
In the morning with Mr. E. L. Carney
brother of Mrs. Poindexter.
After the loading of the "Billiken'
with twenty-four ladies from the var
ious docks on the lake, a delightful
excursion was taken around the lake
with a stop of two hours at the Mc
Iver pavillion, where a bounteous sup
per was provided by Mrs. Poindexter,
after which every member of the party
was requested to relate a story, either
of their own personal experience or
of some friend. Mis3 Annie Robin
son's story was conceded to be the
most thrilling personal story of her
own experience with two huge rats
chasing around the room, while she
stood on a revolving chair crying for
help. A lovely jabot was presented
Miss Robinson in recognition of her
ability in making the story so graphic
that every lady got her skirts ready
for a spring somewhere. Some looked
at the table, and some at the lake, but
as the story proceeded, the police came
in and dispatched the rats with their
clubs, all gathered courage to remain
In their seats. Mrs. Poindexter and
Mrs. Binns are charming entertainers.

south. Thoroughly equipped in the the theology

latter to meet In his church and became

In 18G5 Dr. Wilson was styled "stat

general assembly, and he continued to
be such until lS09. when he resigned,
being then seventy-seven years old and
having kept the southern Presbyterian
records for nearly forty years. He was
moderator of the assembly In 1879. He

house, saw two men meet on the side

men in every sort of garb mounted on
every sort of horse ride past the house
one day on their way to join the Con

not enough food, but it was greatly
restricted in variety.
There was another war event that
made its impression upon the boy in
the summer of 1S05 he saw Jefferson
Davis ride by under guard on his way
to Fortress Monroe.
After 1SG3 Dr. Wilson's church was
occupied temporarily by Federal sol
diers. However, such hardships as the
city of Augusta suffered through the
war were nothing compared with those
endured in most parts of the south. It
Is to this fact that is to be attributed
the small part in Woodrow Wilson's
education played by the passions of
the great conflict He was only nine
years old when the war ended. He

a delightful suburban spot, then known
merely' as the "sand hills." where Wil Wilson's

north, and'wheu she was away from

long past the date at which most
youngsters have learned to read. It
may have been that his mother, who
had been strenuously taught In her
young years In England and who used
In later life to speak feeiingily of the
folly of having to learn Latin in one's
sixth year, had ideas of her own about
forcing the young intellect. It may
