Tallahassee, May 22.- Represen Representative
tative Representative L. S. Light of Marion makes
an interesting statement for the
I ress with reference to his attitude
on the bill appropriating .$428,000
for the various colleges of the state.
The statement which contains def definite
inite definite facts and figures, is as follows:
"The committee on the governor's
message and administrative reports
were granted special orders on the
following bills: First, special order
calls for an appropriation f $428, $428,-ooo
ooo $428,-ooo and $60uo for nursery inspec inspection.

deficiency appropriation on shrink shrinking
ing shrinking of interest on certain bonds The
third bill calls for an appropriation
for boys and girls corn and tomato
clubs. The fourth bill calls for an
appropriation to carry out the pur purposes
poses purposes of Chapter rl.")G 1911 laws.
The fif'h bill calls for an appropria appropriation
tion appropriation of $S0,00() for the Marianna Re Reform
form Reform School.
"Strange to me it is that the com committee
mittee committee on governor's message could
iind but little in the governor's mes message
sage message but appropriation bills. Strange
to me it is that the appropriations
embraced in the above, amounting
to more than one-hilf of a million of
dollnrs, was not referred to the com committee
mittee committee on appropriations. Strange
to me is it that in the many hun hundreds
dreds hundreds of bills that have been printed,
these bills appropriating more than a
half million dollars were not printed.
Strange to me is it that whenever an
appropriation bill came up it was
never printed. Strange to mo is it
jiit the i k was no t-ft'ort made to in inform
form inform the members of the House
when money was wanted. Strange
to me is it that the most of our spe special
cial special order bills are appropriation
bills. Strange to me is it that there
has been but one bill made special
order for relief of taxpayers, and it
was withdrawn, or indefinitely post postponed,
poned, postponed, before a votw was taken on it.
'When tnese special order appro appropriation

of the board of control gave me a
copy of the $4 28,000 appropriation

The prohibitionists are hard at work
at Tallahassee, trying- to push thru the
Adkins-Turnbull petition bill, the
Blitch anti-8hippin? bill and the Davis
sealed package bill. If these bills be
come law, the great majority of the
saloons in the state will have to close
their door's by Oct. 1, 1913.
The prohibitionists insist that the
whisky people are trying to block all
legislation in the attempt to hold up
these three bills, and are asking their
friends all over the state to send let
ters, telegrams and petitions to their
senators and representatives, insisting
on the passage of the measures.
It is impossible to tell how the con contest
test contest will end, but at this writing it
looks like the dry forces will win. The
great majority of the counties in the
state are dry, and their legislators are
either in favor of prohibition, or afraid
to vote against it.
The Adkins-Turnbull petition bill
will oblige white and colored voters to
sign separate petitions to establish
saloons, and also requires that a ma
jority of the voters in each precinct
sign a petition for each saloon. It will
completely shut out saloons anywhere
except in the residence sections of
The Blltch anti-shipning bill is a
state edition of the Webb national bill.
It will prevent shipping liquor into

No package to be opened in saloon.
No sales to drunkards.
No sales to minors or females.

No drinking in saloon by keeper or

No screens, chairs, tables, music

No liquor debts collectable.
Fine for violation not more than

The Davis bill was scheduled for a
vote in the House this morning, and
hundreds of telegrams were sent from
Ocala and other Marion county points
last night and this morning to our
representatives at Tallahassee, asking
them to vote for it.
It is not to be wondered at that the
liquor people are putting up the fight
of their lives on these bills. A man

roll Carroll of the Star is to be telegraph edi editor
tor editor on the same date.
The Star presumes that Uncle Frank
will attend and treat the Times' read readers
ers readers to one of his classic articles. Mr.
Benjanin says he can't go. He claims
that 1,e hasn't time. The truth is that
If he was to stay out of the Star office
three days, the paper might find out it
could get along without him, and wire
him to stay away. Then he would have
to go' to work, and it is so long since
he has done any work that he has for forgotten
gotten forgotten how.
Ail the Star force will get behind Mr
Carroll and try to make him attend the
convention. They will have a little
celebration of their own while he Is
away. He is just the man to handle
the Times' telegraph service for a day.
He has much experience with tele-
s-ranh. Everv day this week he has
had a telegram from Judge Williams
telling him to put another page on the
Marion County Fair premium list. And
almost everv time he goes further
awav from Ocala than Lake Weir he
telegraphs for money to come home on.
Several other Ocala men who are not
newspaper men, do the same stunt.
If the Times carries out its plan, its
?opie3 for the three days will be worth
preserving as curiosities. The Star has
already ordered a frame for its three.
They will. look like war maps of Mex Mexico,
ico, Mexico, the Balkan penninsula and the
suffragette section of Jondon.

who gradually awakes, moaned and
then slowly pushed himself to a half
upright posture, sitting in the dazed
manner of one just recovered from an
anaesthetic. He looked around and

mountain tops surrounded him, a deep
gorge lay at his feet, the dropping sun
was sending its horizontal rays into

even his name and place of abode

He was as lost as one would be who
suddenly born of full growth found
himself adrift in space possessed of
his full faculties but with no past and
therefore with nothing to remember.
He looked at his hand, one finger of
which was encircled by a heavy seal
ring. It looked familiar to him sure surely

be a waste of time, each minute of

over the boulders.
The sun sank and the darkness be became
came became intense. Guided by instinct
alone, he scaled the opposite side of
the canyon, often dragging himself
upward by pure strength of limb, more
than once sending lodsened rocks
crashing downward to the bottom in
leaping fiieht, their roar accentuated
by the darkness. He reached the j
summit of the ridge and found him-:
self standing in the glow of the moon,
another deep plunge before him, but
with light once mere to serve him.
Again he scrambled down the trail, j
An hour later from the mountain ;

Miles behind him across canyon and ;

seemed to hang directly over it. What i
was happening there, what.unspeak-j
able tragedy in that dizzy land of des- j
olation inhabited by an uncanny fly- j
ing thing, a madman and a more than j
likely half senseless girl! He bit j
his lips until they bled, crying aloud I
in his impotence, his voice as cracked
and broken as the voice of a raven.
Then of a sudden as he gazed he be-
taiiic uozrn to me spot, staring across
the waste and upward with eyes which
were dilated by hcrror. For against
the face of the rounded moon he had
seen a grotesque, bat-like shape arise,
hover and then release a sqnirming
object that shot downward as an ar arrow
row arrow falls. He pressed his hands to
his head, closed his eyes, then looked
again. The forms had vanished, and
uncertain whether he had really seen
this grewsome thing or had been the
victim of an apish trick of his imagi
nation he once more plunged onward.
He came to the narrow trail which
led around the shoulder of the moun mountain

upon one side and a sheer descent of
hundreds of feet upon the other he
had involuntarily closed his eyes
when he had traversed it hours before
in the pursuit, guiding himself along
it now solely by the sense of touch.
The darkness was deep here and he
was more thankful for it than other otherwise,
wise, otherwise, since it concealed and rendered
less unnerving the death which he
knew must come from a false step
aside. Over the delicately 'poised
slide of shale he crept on hand.and
knees, feeling his way with his fingers,
testing each rock before putting his
faith upon It, until reaching its fur further
ther further side and finding the going fairly
good and the ligkt sufficient, for a
short space he broke into a shambling
run. Interminably, seemingly through
ages, he struggled on with all sense
