Miami, Feb. 19.- In the trial of
Mrs. Grace Howell for attempting to
take the life of P. C. Cox, a large
amount of very sensational testimony
is being admitted regarding the mur murder

accessory' before the fact to the
crime; was arrested, tried in the cir circuit
cuit circuit court and found guilty, when ap appeal
peal appeal was taken and the supreme
court decided that the case should
have been tried in the criminal court.
Cox was again arrested. The case
was never tried. After repeated go going
ing going over from one term to another it
was finally dropped.
Indignant people then Tselieved
that the mysterious murder would
never be solved. A portion of the
alleged confession of Cox, which was
admitted in evidence yesterday, is as
"On the night of the killing of
Hefty Parcel her father came for. me
to put the body in the river. He paid
me ?800 to make away with the girl.
I sinned against the poor little dead
girl. It hurts me to think of it. Ic
helped Parcel put the body in' the
sack, then we-tied it on my buggy
and. took it to the river. Parcel rode
down on his wheel to the river with
us. Fred held the horse. I waded
into the water and Parcel let the'
body down from the dock. We fixed
her hair and -clothes "before we put
her in the water. : God help me, I
can see the poor girl now. Lawrence
told the truth at my trial, I lied, I

"The Halfbreed" given last night
by the Park Dramatic Company to a
very large audience was a splendid
western play and every part was well
acted. The part of the Indian was
the best make-up and most naturally
portrayed ever given here. The other
characters were well presented. The
"Halfbreed" played his part well as
also did "Evelyn," "Sue," "Ross Ken Ken-yon,"
yon," Ken-yon," "Little Pal," the "Judge," the
"Sheriff," "Hooly" and "Mary Ann."
The specialties between acts are al always
ways always winners of applause.
Tonight's play will be "The Char Charity

Mr. Ribble has leased from Mrs.
Holder the lobby of the Holier
block, one of the most convenient
and best arranged locations oft the
ground floor in the city for the com company's
pany's company's office. Workmen will soon
begin fitting the office up which, on

The line construction crew is now
engaged in ptitting up poles and

$ stringing the wires, branching off

from the company's trunk lines at
Palatka. This crew will build to

'j Gainesville and from there to Ocala.
j Only these two points will be added
& j to the company's offices at present,

j j and there will be no local business to

take up the time of the wires and
operators. The main line of the

Company extends at present

Jacksonville to Tampa along

the A. C. L. Railway ri?ht of way,

nature of an experiment and will be
watched with a great deal of inter interest,

largely a more extendei entrance
into other parts of the state, and the
ultimate extension of the line south
from here.
Xo part of the United States is

more dependent on its telegraph ser- i

vice than is Florida. Most of the
products the money producing re
sources of the state, are perishable
vegetables, fruits, fish and oysters,
commodities' that have to be mar mar-keted
keted mar-keted in a hurry and the telegraph
wires enter largely into the mar marketing
keting marketing of these commodities. It is
therefore very evident that the best
service, the keenest competition
along that line, means a great deal
for the state.
One of the good features of the
Postal Telegraph Co. is that it does
not handle any railroad business,
day letters, market reports or sport sporting
ing sporting news, hence is able to rush the
commercial telegrams and get the

very best service; it does, however,

As 'the Postal Telegraph & Cable
Co. is new to these parts, it might
not be amiss to tell what it is and
what it does:
The company enters 27,000 points
in the United States and reaches ter territory
ritory territory comprising all excepting two
to five- per cent of the telegraph bus

iness of the country. It is part of;
the MacKay Wire System compris comprising
ing comprising the Postal and Commercial

of the principal points in America.
It has seven trans-Atlantic cables,
one direct cable to Cuba from New
York, and 12,000 miles of subma submarine
rine submarine cables in the Pacific ocean, af affording
fording affording exclusive connections with

our Oriental possessions and China.
It reaches, over its own lines, two two-thirds
thirds two-thirds of the way around the globe,
from Paris on one side to Shanghai,
China, on the other, so that one can

see the company is not small fry, by

any means.

Mr. Ribble came to Florida in in infancy

Editor Star: Our attention has

not care to enter into the argument,

only insofar as it affects our inter

article is that part wherein the writer
states that his "was the only bid re

Editor Truth, Zolfo, Fla.:
Dear Sir: Published in Dixie of

"Fletcher and the Workingman,"

(by G. W. Adams in Zolfo Truth) in;

which this appears:

"When such an important Mil as

the one providing for investigation

of conditions affecting child labor,

etc., was introduced, it' occurs to us

that if Senator Fletcher had been

such a genuine friend of the labor

ing man, he would have at once be

come active in behalf of the measure.

A (measure of that character should

have received his hearty endorsement
and support. But did it get it? No.

The records show that Senator

Fletcher was 'present,' but not vot voting.

was at least not for the measure, and
'he that is not for us is against us.
Mr. Fletcher was supposed to be
looking after the welfare of the

children as well as the grown-ups,

but it seems that in this case he was

not deeply interested enough to even

vote for or against the measure."
In the same article is the state statement:
ment: statement: "We stand ever ready to cor

rect a wrong."

Assuming you tmeant the last
statement in good faith, I desire to
say the first quotation does not state
facts, as the Congressional Record
will show, and does me an injustice
and a "wrong."
I am getting somewhat used to
that, however, and it will be impos impossible,

mathematical impossibility to sub submerge

depth, and If it were possible no sig signals

Again the Sirlions.
King James L is said to have been
so well pleased with a lion of beef
as to knight it and make it Sir Lion,
or Eirlion. However, a story of the
same kind was also told of Henry
VIIL, and is to be found in Fuller's
"Church History." Dining with the
abbot of Reading, Henry, according to
this authority, ate so heartily of a
lion of beef that the abbot said he
would give 1,000 marks for such a
stomach. "Done!" said the king, and
kept the abbot a prisoner in the tower
until he grew ravenously hungry, and
won his 1,000 marks and knighted the
beef. But Webster characterizes this
etymology as "erroneous," saying that
the true spelling should be "surlion"
the "sur" being equal to "super."

"Sot one single speck. I merely like
you to make love at me and cause my
heart to Jomp."
The little hypocrite continued to voice
words of warning and denial, though
her eyes invited him. and for a long
time they continued thfs delightful
play of pleading and evasion. But at
last Chiquita jumped up with a great
appearance of alarm.
"Heavens, the time!" she cried. "1
have stayed too long by much. Ste Stephanie
phanie Stephanie will miss me."
He rose and stretched out his hand
as if to hold her.
"Shall I come again tomorrow?"
She grew suddenly earnest.
"No. no. senor. That is something
you should not ask. If ever we are to
meet ajrain it must be with my father's
consent. Please! Do not urge, for truly
I would have-to refuse.' She let her
palm rest fn his an instant, and her
cheek went scarlet as he pressed It to
his lips. Then she said: "Go, Mr. Bra Brazen
zen Brazen One. nowT greatly it surprised me
to find you here I cannot say. It gave
me such a start! And Senor Antonio
my father may be found any day at his
bank." Before he could detain her she
was gone, flitting up the path with just
one flashing smile of mischief over her
Anthony went home with his head In
the clouds. AH his doubts were now at
rest: for while Chiquita had stubbornly
denied him all encouragement, he felt
sure that her heart had answered. It
was in the highest spirits, therefore,
that he opened a letter he found await awaiting
ing awaiting him and read as follows:
Dear Kirk I hope you are heartily sick
of yourself and ready to do something
decent for a change. Knowing your aris aristocratic
tocratic aristocratic habits as I do. I realize you must
owe a lot of money by this time, and
your new friends must be getting tired of
you. I have been expecting you to dra

to- warn you in your own expensively ac acquired
quired acquired college English that "there is noth nothing
ing nothing doing" except upon one condition. If
you will agree to behave yourself in fu future

and give you a job as operator at $40 a
month. But you will go where I send you.
and you will stay where you are put. 1
will do the thinking for both of us and
judgp of your associates. Maybe If sou
prove to be any good at all 1 will arrange
with the police to let you spend your va
cations in "that dear New York" which
still shows signs ot your red paint brush
I worM be pleased to have an apology by
return mail, so that I may meet you In
New Orleans and start you off once more
on the road to decency and self respect.
You will never be a success at anything,
but T am always ready to do my duty.
Thia is my last offer, and If you refus
you may distinctly and definitely go to
the devil. As ever your loving father,
P. S. I can get good operators for $30 a
month. The extra $10 is pure sentiment.
Spurred by his present exhilaration
Kirk wrote an answer, which he read
with a good deal of satisfaction before
sealing it up:

like to help you along with your business.

thank you, and I like the climate.
The salary would have to be about $6,000

Kirk lost no time in calling at the
bank, but was disappointed to learn
that Senor Andres Garavel had left
the city for an unexpected business
tour of the provinces and would not
return for at least two weeks.
In the days that followed he saw
uothing of Gertrudis. but a great deal
of Edith Cortlandt. She had redeemed
her promise of getting him a good
horse something rare in this country
and he was grateful for the exercise,
which came as a welcome relief from
his indoor toil. Soon their old friendly
intercourse was going on as if it had
never been interrupted
As for Edith, this semipublic in intimacy

pain as a pleasure to her. Duriux

s!ie had tried to reason; she had mar mar-s'ia

She began to look upon her husband
with a quickened curiosity, and found
him a stranter. For years she had

so colorless, so insignificant, above all
so alien. She had barely tolerated him
hitherto, but now she began to de- j
spise him. S
If Cortlandt was aware of her change
of feeling and its cause, his method
of dealing with her showed some keen
ness. Silent contempt was what she
could least endure from him of all
men; yet this was just what his man manner
ner manner toward her expressed if It ex
pressed anything.
Even if he did suspect, what then?
It .was no affair of his; she was her
own mistress. She had given him all
he possessed, she had made a man of
him. He was her creature, and had
no rights beyond what she chose to
give. They saw less and less of each
other. Only before others, or at their
frequent political councils, were they
quite the same as they had been.
Of Anthony, on the other hand, she
arranged to see more than ever, flatter flattering

manner, making him feel always at

they covered most of the roads about

bypaths and trails.
One afternoon they turned into an
unfrequented road that led off to the
jungle from the main highway, walk walking
ing walking their horses while they marveled
at the beauty of the foliage. They
burst out into a rocky glen, where a
spring of clear water bubbled forth.
"What a discover-!" exclaimed Edith.
"Help me down, please. I'm going to
Kirk dismounted and lent her a hand
The horses snorted appreciatively and,
stepping forward, thrust their soft
muzzles eagerly into the stream, then
fell to browsing upon the tender leaves
at their shoulders.
Edith quenched her thirst, shook the
cramp from her limbs and said: "Some
time we will have to see where this
road leads. There may be more sur surprises
prises surprises beyond." She broke a flower
from its stem and fastened it in Kirk's
buttonhole while he gazed down at her
with friendly eyes.
"You're looking awfully well lately,"
he declared.
Glancing up, she met his gaze and
held it for an Instant Something in
her look gave him a little thrill of em embarrassment

aside, began to gather a handful of the
greenest leaves. The instant his eyes,
were off her she took the horses by their
bridles, swung them about and with a
sharp blow of her riding crop sent
them snorting and clattering down the
trail. Kirk wheeled barely in time to
see them disappearing.
"Say, why did you do that? he
