VIGILANCE COM3I ITTEES
The following from the St. Peters Petersburg
burg Petersburg Independent is all interesting
-and mostly truthful:
The inadequacy of the existing
-laws of Florida was made especially
plain here yesterday when a man was
sent to jail for failure to support his
family. If this was not so serious it
would be humorous. The idea of
locking a man up for refusing to
provide for his family! His oppor opportunity
tunity opportunity to provide for his family
while locked in the jail is certainly
not great. One says that the man is
pertainly as much use to his family
in jail as outside, if he will not sup support
port support them when he is free, and the
example of severe punishment pre prevents
vents prevents others from following the ex example
ample example of the man Who neglected to
care for wife and children. This is
begging the question; we think there
.should be a way to punish and also
compel the man to go to work "and
to provide for those dependent on
The law which deprives a man of
his liberty for failing to provide for
children certainly fails to accom accom-;plish
;plish accom-;plish that for which it was intended.
" The law says the man who refuses to
?, care for his children is guilty of a
felony and can be confined in the
penitentiary. But what good does
that do? It merely disgraces his
wife and children the more and fails
. to provide any relief for them. They
suffer shame in, addition to want.
The men who framed this law say
that the fear of punishment will hold
a man up to his duty, but the man
ho has no more heart than to' see
his children suffer for lack of food
and clothing which he might give
them is not apt to be frightened by a
jail sentence, for he can feel no
shame if he is not ashamed to leave
his own flesh and blood to suffer the
pangs of hunger.
The vigilance committee does bet bet-ter
ter bet-ter than the law. An instance in
point, related by" a well known citi citizen
zen citizen of St. Petersburg, will show how
the committee works. In a middle
Florida town there was a man who
-drank and lived off what his wife
earned by taking in washing. He

you do not help to provide for your
wife we will "whip you again, and if
we ever hear of your being drunk
ve will whip you to the limit of
cur endurance. If you try to run
away we will hunt you down if it
takes ten years, and when we catch
you we will swing you from the limb
of a tree."

and, being unable to pay a fine,
would have been put in jail. His
wife would have been rid of him,
mt that was not what sue wanted,
:for she loved the man in spite of his
faults; she wanted him compelled to
work and to treat her well. The
whipping did more to reform him
than a year in jail would have done.

WHAT A PURE-BRED
SIRE IS WORTH
Those who doubt the economy of
using a pure-bred sire should study
weir the following facts:
Recently Mr. J. M. Aldrich," Michi Michigan
gan Michigan City, Miss., sold yearling grade
Angus feeders for six cents a pound
live weight, the weighing beirre; done
at the farm. Yearling feeders by a
scrub bull, such as is generally used
throughout the South, would not
have sold for much more than half
that price. If a pure-bred bull will
add 25 to 50 per cent to the value of
the grass and other feeds consumed,
it should not take a very smart man
to see that the man who uses a scrub
sire is simply, selling, his products at
too low a price. We hear much about
better marketing these days, but
thousands of those who talk most
about the necessity for better mar marketing
keting marketing of farm products continue to
market their feedstuffs through three
and four-cent cattle, when a pure purebred

Here is an opportunity to do a little

I certainlv do think so: first, be-!
cause the big standing armies and
big navies produce the most amazing
waste of both energy and money
known among men since the begin begin-ing
ing begin-ing of time, and should te stopped.
Second, every year there is money
enough wasted in this -way to feed,
clothe and educate every poor child
Jon the globe. Third, it is estimated
I that since the beginning of authentic
history the aggregate loss of life in
wars, and as their direct result, has
amounted to the enormous total of
fifteen billion men. This total is
more than nine times as large as the
population of the world at the pres
ent time. We naturally say that
these estimates are based on ancient
history, when the world was largely
uncivilized and the principal occu
pation of. man was war and murder.
But during the nineteenth century
fourteen million men either were
killed in battle or died as the result
thereof. Our own civil war contri contributed
buted contributed approximately 800,000 men to
this tragic census. And today, in an
era of absolute peace, the civilezed
nations of the world are spending
two billion dollars and a 'half a year
in preparing their armies and navies
so that they may be ready to kill
men and spread ruin and dvastation
throughout the world. (Yet every
intellectual and moral influence is
today tending toward peace.) A po potent
tent potent factor in the abatement of war
is the increasing attention of civil civilized
ized civilized nations to the pursuits of indus industry
try industry and commerce. Those who- are
engaged i such pursuits seek to
prevent war, just as sanitary science
guards against pestilence. With the
development of the human reason,
with the absorption of men in intel intellectual
lectual intellectual pursuits, with the increases
influence of moral forces, war seems
more and more appalling.
Apart from the moral and relig religious
ious religious aspect of the movement for in international
ternational international peace, there is an even
greater and more practical feature,
which is becoming each day more and
more important, namely: that under
the present weight of armament the
civilized nations of the world are
staggering toward bankruptcy. In
a single year the nations of the civ
ilized world spent approximately
$2,500,000,000 on account of wars,
past, present and1 prospective. In
1911, England expended $341,820, $341,820,-000

$270,91S,000; Germany, $31S,446, $31S,446,-000,

moodily shook his head.
After a pause
"Have you any place we may retire

in the same tone.
"The chart-house," vouchsafed Tom,
uneasily moving in that direction.
Once seated, there followed a long

blurted Tom. His astonishment at the

and leaned back in his chair.

In the face of the older man's direct
manner, Tom's nervousness left him.
The powerful personality was not
without its influence; but Tom was not
the eort pf chap that any man could
overawe, and his discomposure was
chiefly owing to his ticklish position,
and his ready recognition of the fact
that it was not the sort of situation
that he was equipped to cope with.
However, he was strongly attracted
toward Willard; there was something
in spite of his oddity, distinctly likable
about the man. j
"Look here, Willard," he began,
meeting the other's regard with a level

bluntness, "your name is not at all fa familiar

"Then your love of justice overbal overbalances

"I like to see a square deal, if that's
what you mean."
Willard now rose to his feet.

'relief. "That explains matters. I am
