The country at large is saddened
to learn of the death of Lieut.-Col.
David Dubose Gaillard, of the United
States army, who directed the en engineering
gineering engineering work in the Culebra cut, a
division of the Panama canal, who
died at Johns Hopkins Hospital in
Lieut.-Col. Gaillard had been a
patient at the hospital since August
17 last, suffering from a growth in
the head, the result of seven years'
arduous labor in the tropical climate
of the canal zone. He failed grad gradually
ually gradually but steadily, and for the last
two months had been in a state of
coma due to the pressure of the
cranial growth upon the brain cells.
The physicians decided some time
ago that an operation was useless
and might hasten his death.
He is survived by his widow and a
son, Lieut. David P. Gaillard, U. S.
army. Both were at the bedside
when the end came.
Lieut.-Col. Gaillard was born at
Winnsboro, S. C, in 1854. He grad graduated
uated graduated from West Point Military
Academy in 1884, and since that
time had won many honors in the
engineering service. A bill was in introduced
troduced introduced in Congress last month
promoting him to the rank of colo colonel
nel colonel in recognition of his distinguish distinguished
ed distinguished services, which culminated in the
great engineering feat in the
Culebra section of the Panama canal.

doubt their word, but with the
amount of notice they had of a fair
which had been held for five consec consecutive

their forgetteries must have been
working overtime, and their remind reminder
er reminder nerves must have been entirely
-atrophied. Time will tell, for it cer certainly
tainly certainly isn't to their interest any more
than ours to run an opposition show.
The date of Marion's fair is estab established

why it is done. If she shows public

Mrs. Pankhurst, immediately on

The Star gives considerable of its
space today to the reproduction of
the write-up of the Sumter county
exhibit at the Marion County Fair,
which appeared in the last issue of
the Bushnell Times. The article is
from the pen of Judge J. C. B.
Koonce, who is county judge of
Sumter and the next thing to being
a citizen of Marion. The article is
very interesting to our own people
as well as to the considerable num
ber of subscribers that the Star has
in Sumter. No county in the state,
or outside, has ever made such a fine
exhibit in such a short time as Sum
ter made at the last Marion Fair. It
was a great help to the fair and the
Star believes it will be a help to
Sumter. All our people hope that
Sumter will be on hand with a still
bigger exhibit and a building of her
own next year, in which case Marion
will have to hustle, or she will be
excelled by her smart little sister to
the south. There is reason to hope
that Citrus will also come in and be
the third member of a great, perma permanent
nent permanent tri-county fair. Lake has fair
aspirations of her own, but her peo
ple have too much sense and public
spirit to hold it on a conflicting date
with Marion's, so the people of both
counties can help each other by at attending
tending attending and appreciating each
other's fairs. The Star thinks it is
likely that Levy people would come
in large numbers to our fair, and
probably make exhibits, if it wasn't
for the difficulty of transportation. If
our commissioners will put their
road force on the road to Morriston
as soon as they finish on the one to
the Lake county line, we may have
Lew crowds and exhibits in Ocala
next year. If not they will go to
Alachua, or probably jpin the peo
ple of Northwest Marion in setting
up another fair and another county.

question of it? paternity was raised,
and you know this always starts gos- j
sip. For awhile Senator Bryan i
claimed it and was rather chesty
about it. Thinking it would add to
his political fame, he gave it his
blessing and his name. Our senator
is a mental Colossus but not a phy physical
sical physical one; he could not bestride the
continent and run things at Wash Washington
ington Washington and Tallahassee at the same
time, so he was obliged to leave it
(in embryo) at a maternity hospital
in Tallahassee, with one head nurse
and a hundred or more internes and
subordinate nurses. A few weeks
ago he had occasion to look it over,
he discovered certain features about
it that did not look just right it
was deformed; he was obsessed with
a horrible suspicion. It ripened into
conviction; he was mad, he raised
a rough house, he repudiated and
disowned it. He rushed to the Me Metropolis
tropolis Metropolis office and let out a loud yell
about the infany of it. Naturally,
this brought out talk, speculation
was rife. The Ocala Star suspected
some depraved legislator bribed by
the special interests had planted the
joker, and called loudly for impeach impeachment;
ment; impeachment; the valiant Dixie, thinking
possibly (remember I use the word
possibly) that it could be laid at the
door of the Times-Union, demanded
that the governor, who has such a
tender' regard for the oppressed tax taxpayers,

of the legislature to brain it. It was
even whispered around that the leg legislature

to do with it, as it was in the neigh neighborhood
borhood neighborhood about that time, and the
further incriminating circumstance
that it was the parent of many
freaks. However, it cleared its skirts
by pointing to the fact that at that
time it was very busy incubating and
hatching a brood of new officers,
raising salaries, dodging the consti constitution
tution constitution and otherwise arranging to
put the state treasury on the bum.
Ic was finally decided to call for the
judgment of Solomon, and when the
execution was about to take place,
the governor steps up and 'fesses
up, assumes the air of a proud
father and adopts it as his heir, so
there you are. Parent-like, in his
eyes it is not deformed, for it favors
(not resembles) that remote coun
tryman upon whom he dotes and
depends for votes. The senator can
go chase himself, and curse himself
for his credulity in thinking that the
legislature was free and un-Tram-mell-ed.

city limits; all side streets with lime rock, with concrete cement side
ditches. I shall very much oppose the present system of building and
maintaining streets. I consider that anything that Is worth doing at all,
is worth doing well. It has been demonstrated time and time again, here
in the last few years, that the scant way in which the streets are now re repaired

OCALA AND THE RAILWAY COMPANIES. I am uncompromising uncompromisingly

streets we have and the railroads should be forced to maintain good cross crossings

i public, and the railroads are allowed to cross them upon the condition
that they maintain good crossings and do not interfere with the public
use of said streets, and when they fail to comply with these conditions,

The above are some of my views with reference to the upbuilding of
Ocala. If you believe I would make you agood representative in the city
council, it is up to you to elect me. I had nothing to do with putting
myself in this race and I shall make no effort in a personal way to be

Introducing Mr. Flint.
Whatever it might have been that
Rudolph Van Vechten wanted to pon ponder
der ponder in connection with the morning's
happenings, he had no thought for the
hourly procession of strange men into
Number 1313, nor for the veiled lady
(as much as her appearance had agi agitated

if murder there had been.
His mind was flooded with dissolv dissolving

saw her shrinking in dread before an
unspeakable terror, from which he
could not shield her; he saw her sob sobbing
bing sobbing out her heart in bitter distress,
and it was not his privilege fo comfort
her. And then, most vivid of all, were
the scorn and reproach of her hand handsome
some handsome dark eyes, against whose silent
accusation he could not defend him himself.

ing chafing and fretting him almost to. dis distraction;
traction; distraction; his head ached and throbbed;
his nerves felt as if they stood stripped
in a sleet storm. And a beautiful face,
as luminous as dawn, floated elusively
before him, pleading, rebuking, teas teasing,
ing, teasing, coaxing, hating, but constantly
and always leaving him more and more
mystified and hopelessly perplexed.
As far advanced as the season was,
there still remained several weeks
which, 'earlier, he had planned to spend
with the Carterets. Fred Carteret
owned a pleasant summer home on the
oorth shore of Long island, and a com comfortable
fortable comfortable eailing-yacht which Tom Phin Phin-ney
ney Phin-ney delighted to navigate up and down
the sound, while the other dined, made
merry or took advantage of the cool
breezes to sleep. He even regretted
that he must forego Tommy's cheerful
habit of every now and then poking
his head in at the cabin skylight and
shouting directions to the bridge play players

always' enjoy that sort of thing. H&

And then would have followed a
journey in his own trim steam-yacht

Cheseapeake, to wait for the autumn
hegira of ducks. His cousin's pros prospective

Paige Carew had completed her mu musical

would enchant the world or at least
that elect portion of it which she
would condescend to favor with her

since he could remember, this contin contingency
gency contingency had been taken so for granted
that he had never thought to question
it. It was so much the proper thing
for them to do, such a logical union,
so desirable from every point of view,
that he and Paige had always regarded
it as a settled thing an assured fa'ct
awaiting only the ripe moment.
True, neither of them seemed eager to
hasten the time, but if that time was
ever to come it must now be near at
hand; they could not much longer be
content with "some time."
He frowned with annoyance. Why
couldn't such a sensible girl come
home at the proper time, when all ar arrangements
rangements arrangements had been made for her re
ception and her family and friends had
every reason to expect her? There
was one consolation in the absence of
those friends from town; he was not
obliged to invent answers to embar embar-rassing

but that whatever he might 6ay would
be well worth harkening to.

queried the newcomer in a tone that
could not have carried a yard beyond

any particulars upon which to base
an estimate of my intelligence."
The steady, smiling regard still met
the young man's.
"I'll demonstrate just how simple a
matter it is if you have pardoned this
The listener nodded. His attention
was already won.
"Have you any idea how the poor
chap met his death?" he queried.
"Yes," was the prompt reply. "He
was struck over the head with some
kind of blunt instrument. It is pretty
certain that only one of the blows
the one on the temple could have
I proved fatal; the other right behind
the left ear might have stunned him
or produced unconsciousness. But as
to who did it there's the question.
There are some extraordinary features
about this murder, Mr. Van Vechten."
Rudolph Van Vechten rose and
walked over to a front window.
"Come here," he invited Mr. Flint.
And then, after the latter had quietly
joined him, he nodded toward Number

The network of wrinkles marked a
narrowing of the gray eyes, while Mr.
Flint subjected the unprepossessing
facade to a long, searching scrutiny.
"Then," he 6aid at last, "you were

lier earlier in the day, while Mr. Flint sank
into the one lately occupied by Tom
Phinney. "If you can make anything
of what I have to tell you, you are
welcome to it."
He began with as much of Number

but two reservations, recounted every everything

but respectful attention, not once in interrupting
terrupting interrupting the recital. And when Van
Vechten had finished, Mr. Flint asked
a single question. His preoccupied
look remained upon Number 1313.
"Has it occurred to you." he said,
With thouehtfu! Hpi!pration. "to won wonder
der wonder wbere the murderer came tromT
and whither he fled?"
Van Vechten sat silent, unmoving,
his face a mask. Involuntarily now,
his mind once more fashioned a map
of the neighborhood one that carried
the fatal alley stra'ght behind the
house across the way.
"I mentioned," Mr. Flint was pursu- j
ing, "that this case oSered some rath- j
er extraordinary features. So far, j
quite the most extraordinary is that a
man was struck dow i on a populous

directly across the street from the
alley, who witnessed from a window

saw no one running from the scene."
"Perhaps," murmured Van Vechten
"perhaps no one did."
"Ah to be sure," observed Mr. Flint,
smoothly. "A crowd gathered very
quickly, I believe; what was easier
than to remain and mingle with it?
An old trick, Mr. Van Vechten."
That young man did not meet the
swift oblique glance that swept his
immobile features. Mr. Flint rose
slowly, and stood irresolutely "finger "fingering
ing "fingering his hat. He was again absently
contemplating the Silent House. After
a moment his eyes crinkled in a smile.
He said softly:
"I see, Mr. Van Vechten, that the
same thought has come to both of us."
And before departing he bestowed a
final reflective nod upon Number 1313.
