space to a recent article in the Tri Tribune

Henry Montgomery, who has recent recently

camps, and who charged a continu continuance

which for so long placed Florida

table disreputable character, a negro, and alleges
that his name was used by someone
who had a grievance against R. S.
Hall, the owner of the camp at
which the cruelties are charged to
have been practiced.
The Tribune did not and does not
now stand sponsor for Montgomery's
letter. It was printed simply as a
signed communication. We have the
highest respect for Mr. Hall aDd we
have no idea that he is cognizant of
or has any knowledge of improper
conduct on the part of his guards or
shipping bosses. At the same time,
the Star, with all its extensive de de-Tense,

camps where the system is in opera

The Star is not acquainted with

Pretty Tradition of Moss Rose.
A German tradition gives the origin
of the moss rose as follows: Once
upon a time an angel, having a mis mission
sion mission of love to suffering humanity,
came down to earth. He was much
grieved at all the sin and misery he
saw, and all the evil things he heard.
Being tired, he sought a place where wherein
in wherein to rest, but as it fared with his
master, so it fared with him, there
was no room for him, and no one
would give him shelter. At last he lay
down under the shade of a rose, and
slept till the rising sun awoke him.
Before winging his flight heavenward
he addressed the rose and said, as it
had given him the shelter which man
denied, it should receive an enduring
token of hi3 power and love, and so,
leaf by leaf, and twig by twig) the
soft green moss grew around the
stem, and there it is to this day, a
cradle in which the new-born rose
may lie, a proof, as the angel said,
of God's power and love. Boston

that he could find the men to com complete

ill-advised; he had in mind the very

ply simply one of running them to earth.
As being of prime importance, he

the engineer, lolling at ease in the
tonneau, grinned cheerfully.
"Maybe you don't want the job or
need the money," announced Tom with
decision, "but I do need a first officer
in a devil of a hurry, too and I'm
not going to be over-particular about
how I get him. You're elected. As

Mercer subsided, grumblingly ac accepting

At the Claremont Tom stabled the
machine, tried to get Van Vechten on
the phone and failed, and notified Ram Ram-ley
ley Ram-ley at the Kenmore's garage where to
find his employer's car. Then he and
Mercer and Cox clambered down to
the Claremont's landing, where a
launch was waiting.
After persuading Phil Mercer that
he didn't have to attend to a suddenly
recollected telephone message, or any
other errand that might take him in
the neighborhood of the Claremont's
bar, Tom addressed himself to the
white-uniformed sailor in cbarge cf
