MUCH PROGRESS
Observed by Seaboard Official, Secre Secretary
tary Secretary Itooney and Man from
the Star Office
One day thi3 week a Star reporter
accompanied Secretary J. D. Rooney
and General Industrial Agent J. A.
Pride, of the Seaboard Airline Rail Railway,
way, Railway, in Mr. Dobbs car, on a trip
thru the southern part of the county.
Mr. Pride came from his headquar headquarters
ters headquarters in Norfolk, Va., on an invitation
from Mr. Rooney, to look over the
section, to get an idea from actual
observations of the territory in culti cultivation,
vation, cultivation, the new settlers, the distance
of the different points from transpor transportation,
tation, transportation, etc., that he might give infor information
mation information to his company, as something
good for the southern part of the
county is in contemplation by the
road.
The party went straight out south
on the Orange avenue hard road past
Captain Pyles farm, on out the newly
completed extension past Pedro and
Dallas, and it is very gratifying toi
see the broad fields and the
man'
small truck patches and farms all
ready for planting or with the seed
already in the ground. Especially
noticeable was the many acres in cul cultivation
tivation cultivation for the first time.
There were a number of fine fields
of oats, and the pretty green acres
made a most pleasing diversion t3
the eye.
In the famous Proctor and Perry
settlements, where, from the names
on the rural boxes, there must be at
least a score of heads of families of
each of these well known names,
there were thousands of acres of
fields in fine shape, planted or being
"planted to spring crops. Informa Information
tion Information secured shows that there are
5,000 acres in this neighborhood in
a high state of cultivation, but it is

IN SOUTH 111

too far from transportation to grow
anything but staple crops.
For more than a third of a century
these families, or their heads, have
Vbeen farmers in that section, well
""thought of, respected for their citi citizenship
zenship citizenship and their success as thrifty
farmers. Even in this old settled
section, hundreds of acres have
been added to the tilled area this
season and will bring crops for the
first time.
From that section the car turned
almost straight east, and soon cross crossed
ed crossed the line of the private railroad of
the McGehee Lumber Company, soOn
to be abandoned, it is feared, unless
some other interest takes over the
road to keep it up. This road, while
not a public carrier in the fullest
sense of the word, has been a great
factor in getting the crops of the peo people
ple people of the Levon section out, and
transporting other supplies back to
them.
The party continued on east to the
Seaborad tracks and turned north to
the thrifty little city of Summerfield,
where they called on the local agent
of the Florida National Land Co.,
who said his concern had a good
many people coming in and settling
on the better land9 of the company.
Most of these he stated, bad been
there looking and had now come to
stay and work their land. Both he.
Mr. Nathan 'Mayo and Mr. P, F. Col Col-lens,
lens, Col-lens, the latter editor of the Chron Chronicle,
icle, Chronicle, said there were a good many
new people coming in, and a nice in

creased acreage in crops for the sea-

-Tson, with fine prospects, land In good
P shape and the best season the sec

tion has ever known.
From this point the car continued
east, stopping at Mr. S. Lehman's,
the famous grape grower and wine
maker a man who has made a suc success
cess success of grape culture for more than
a quarter of a century. Mr. Pride
wanted to see the vineyards, talk
with Mr. Lehman about trying some

new varieties of grapes his depart department
ment department was introducing, aad ascertain
the Varieties Mr. Lehman5 had found
best adapted to this section. The huge
wine cellar was visited, the wines
sampled and found to be excellent
and equal to the grape wines of Vir Virginia
ginia Virginia and California.
The 'party then went on around the

J south side of Lake Weir, along the
line of the Seaboard spur from Sum Sum-merfield
merfield Sum-merfield to Welrsdale, which handles
all the orange crops from the south
side of the lake. The orange groves
did look good, and there was a lot of
fruit being shipped, much remaining
on the trees, but, of course, the bulk
of the crop has been marketed.
A short stop was made at Lakeside
Hotel, Weirsdale, which is open and
filled with guests
The party, in pasing around the
east side of the lake, soon struck
Henry Gordon's road building crew
and from there all the way round to
! North Lake the road is in fine shape,
and is a revelation to one who has
driven a car over the road as it "uster
was." To show .Mr. Pride the beauties
of Woodmar, the car was run down
into that Eden-like settlement and
stopped in front of Commodore
j Goodwin's bungalow, but the com
modore was in swimming or catching
i trout for they could not raise any
one.
The orange groves all along the
south and east side of the lake look
fine and are in prime condition. One
of the party who has just been to De De-Land,
Land, De-Land, said there was no comparison
in the groves of the two sections
that the Lake Weir trees are so far
superior in looks and bearing quali qualities,
ties, qualities, and as to the flavor of the fruit
that was sampled, it cannot be ex excelled
celled excelled anywhere.
On the north side of the lake the
groves looked thrifty and the prop properties
erties properties all in nice condition. Mr. Har Harrison's
rison's Harrison's big bungalow is nearing com completion

a big orange grove by the side of the
hard road, with surveyor and rodman
regularly surveying the land and set

Mr. Pride was dropped at Belle Belle-view,

Much thrift was noticed in Belle Belle-view.
view. Belle-view. There are many visitors there
and the little city is quite busy. The
party, two of whom had never seen it
before, inspected the "Grotto." (And
by the way, those of you who have
not, should- see this phenomenon).
The grotto is a circular hole in the
ground, about 200 feet across, 100
feet deep, with a large, clear spring
in the bottom, as deep as Silver
Springs, it is said, and almost as
clear.. The water is pure and whole wholesome
some wholesome to drink, and where it comes
from and whither it goes no one has
ever been able to find out. Tall trees,
oak and pine, grow out of the pit,
some from near the bottom and
others along up the sides, and a path
leads down, which a husky man can
negotiate, but it gets his wind.
The car then sped on to Ocala and
a vision of many broad acres of fields
was opened to view along each side
of the way.
Anyone who thinks all of the fine
farming land is in the northern part
of the county, has only to make this
trip to see that the southern portion
has a fine farming section and much
land in cultivation.

Motion Which All Crackers

yesterday by offering an amendment
to the Alaskan railroad bill which
would cut out all reference to Alas Alaska

which the bill intends for Alaska, to
the building of a railroad in Florida,
starting at Jacksonville and running
thence south to some point in Dade
county, thence south of Lake Okee Okeechobee

Mr. L'Engle offered this on the
theory that since agricultural devel development

more feasible and profitable if the

Representative Mann, of Illinois,
objected to the L'Engle amendment.
"It is not germane, he said. "This

It is not a bill to build railroads in

"The bill is not a large one when

seven weeks in hearing parties inter?

This cause came on to be heard on

and the same has been argued by so solicitors

questions involved are the bids for
the plumbing and heating.
The notice for bids as published in
Jacksonville, Fla., and in Atlanta,
Ga., was different from the notice
published in Ocala, as to receiving
bids, but all notices referred to the
plans and specifications, and where
they were to be seen, and, of neces necessity
sity necessity they must be considered in con connection

bids. These specifications require a
surety bond from "plumbing and

Marshal Brigance -flnfshe'd up some
more of, his good detective work last

night. Some nights ago a 'white man

from Dunnellon was found on the

streets by the night police, trying to
carry too big a load. He was put in

the lock-up, which already contained
several prisoners, and during the

night a white man, Gus Remsy, and
a negro, Oscar Gadson, went thru
him, and took two twenty dollar
bills. The white man was out next
morning and left for parts unknown.
Gadson gave another negro, Tom

Fmley, one of the twenties to pay
his, Gadsdn's, fine, but instead, Fin Fin-ley
ley Fin-ley skipped out. "Marshal Brigance,
did not learn of the victim's loss in
time to hold all the prisoners, but on

being informed held on. to Gadson,

meantime inquiring which way the

others went. Finley was located at

Leesburg last night and was held at
the marshal's request. Mr. Brigance
turned him over to the state, and

Deputy Roy Galloway went after
him. The victim has recovered some

of his money and Kemsey, wno is a

hobo, will probably be overhauled

ant, complainant, at the suggestion of the board,
did submit both separate and joint
bids for the heating and the plumb-?
ing, and having submitted to offer
separate bids, I cannot see that he
can now complain that the notice
was misleading.
It will be seen that the board has
awarded the contracts to the persons
offering the smallest bids for the
separate proposals.
A deposit of three per cent of the
amount of a bid was required in the
notice published in Ocala, but such
requirement was not in the other no notices,
tices, notices, and the answer of the defend

ant board admits this fact, tout it is
not shown that this fact influenced
the bidding, nor any harm shows to
have been done to the complainant
in that the defendant 'board having
discovered on the day of receiving
bids that it had neglected this re requirement
quirement requirement for a deposit of three per
cent in the notices published other
than in Ocala-, and when it discov discovered
ered discovered that fact after only one bid had
been opened, the board then waived
the deposit, and as several bidders
were non-residents and not to 'blame

for a failure to accompany their bids
with a deposit, does not of itself in

dicate favoritism or corruption on

the part of the board. It is averred
in the answer that all being present,
no bidder objected, which averment,

however,' is denied; and it is further

admitted that the parties to Whom

the respective contracts were award

ed did not accompany their bids with

the three per cent deposit.

The board specifically reserved the

right to "reject any and all bids."

The question then has been reduc-

durt has been alleged, it seems to us

that it would be unwise for the court,
with this showing, to interfere in the
discharge of a duty toy sworn pub public

It is considered and ordered that
the motion to dissolve the injunction
be and the same is sustained, and

" Out-" Versed, by Judge Warner
The readers of the Star will re remember
member remember that some time ago, a cer certain
tain certain Wm. Strong, of Kalamazoo,
Mich., wrote a letter to the Star
telling its readers to beware of my
fish stories, as he had once been a
sufferer from them himself.
As I always try to return good for
evil, I invitei him to come here and
view the -evidence for himself, to
which he replies that he is so busy
settling up estates and making
speeches that he can't come now,
and then adds insult to injury by
enclosing the following villainous
poem, which by insinuation might
apply to Florida as well as Califor California.

I've hear 'em say "I'd liketo leave
this pesky freezin, state.
An' hike to Carilforny, where the
vclimo
Is tammy an' salub'rous; where they
never have no snow;
Where's buds an' lowers an' sum summer
mer summer all the time."
That's fine enough to talk about
that orange blossom thing
An' where the grass the hull year
'round is green;
Where's nothin' on'y happiness an
health an' all o' that;
But don't tell me I've bin right

'Till I looked like I had got the
chicken-pox.
Oh, 'twas sunshine every minnit o'

An' 1 got so fulfio' sunshine an' o

That I went eround a-steamin' like

An' a sweatin' all the time from

The nights wuz cool an' dampish an
I shook an' shook an' shook,
'Till my teeth rattled like I had a

If I'd stayed there I'd bin a-shak-

MI CH CHILLINESS IX MICHIGAN

A Michigan paper of the 13, says:
A temperature of 16 degrees be below
low below zero, a record for the winter,
was registered in Lansing early
Thursday morning, and many cases
of frozen noses and ears were
brought to the attention of local
physicians.
Coldest Since 1913
The severe cold weather Thursday
was the coldest in this vicinity since
two years ago. Last year the mer mercury
cury mercury dropped to 10 degrees below
zero and two years ago to 22 below.
At 11 o'clock Thursday morning
the mercury registered three degrees
above zero. It is reported by the
East Lansing weather bureau that a
blizzard of no small size is due for
this part of Michigan sometime
Thursday afternoon. The east wind,
which has prevailed is slowly dying
out, to the counter-action of the big
snow storm which is coming from
the southwest.
Reports have come in of difficul difficulties
ties difficulties which arose on many of the
steam lines thru this section, owing
to the revere cold which prevented
the development of the proper
amount of steam to run the engines.
One 'Michigan Central train out of
Jackson was an hour late on this account.

in response to an alarm meant an

imposed fine. The fire apparatus

then consisted of a number of hand
reels which had to be pulled to the
scene of a fire by "man strength"
through heavy sand streets.

ERADICATION OF A GREAT EVIL

In an article published a few days
ago, the Star expressed some ideas

brought forth on yellow fever and
malaria by a recital of some of the
experiences of a little band of sur surgeons
geons surgeons during the Spanish-American
war.
This article has attracted a good
deal of attention among not only
members of the medical profession
but other leading citizens, as all
realize what a clog on energy even
the lightest malaria is, not to speak
of the deadly effect of the more vir virulent
ulent virulent forms.
Some of them have expressed the
hope that a world-wide crusade, sim similar
ilar similar to that now being waged against
tuberculosis might be instituted
against malaria, and the Star has no
doubt that this will be done sooner
or later; not long after the ,world in
general begins to understand that
malaria is a preventable disease in instead
stead instead of a natural condition of things
and that it is as almost deadly and
much further reaching than the
great white plague.
Following are some of the things
that the public should understand:
Malaria is a germ disease.

Malaria is transmissable. It is
transmissable, like yellow fever, by

means ot a mosquito. .Mosquitoes
breed only in water stagnant wa water
ter water and of a temperature above 60
degrees. Mosquitoes rarely live ov over
er over three weeks.
There are three ways of getting
rid of malaria:
Kill the disease or germ in the hu human;
man; human; at the same time isolate the
patient.
Destroy mosquitoes in room or vi vicinity.
cinity. vicinity. Destroy or modify breeding places

for mosquitoes.
Co-operation is essential in' the
work. Physicians taking the initi initiative
ative initiative thru health boards should be
supported by woman's clubs, city
councils, county commissioners, and,
last, but not least, by the assistance
and leadership of certain people hav having
ing having influential personality.
For instance: When by education
the tuberculosis campaign was well
under way, Phipps of Philadelphia
and Trudeau of New York state, add

led momentum. Trudeau was the pi

oneer, and for thirty years his en enthusiasm
thusiasm enthusiasm has never cooled.

Likewise, the war against hook

worm, begun by Stiles in 1893, and
pushed by medical men all over the

country, was most ably assisted by

the benevolent enthusiasm of Rocke

feller.

An anti-malaria campaign needs

only some individual of large means

to come forward and stimulate pub public
lic public enthusiasm as well as donate

money or other means.

The Star can't help wondering

sto the philanthropist will be who

will acquire fame of the most endur

lag kind by furnishing the sinews of
war to the medical profession in its
Inevitable campaign against the

world-wide evil of malaria.

railroad iron for a raft, they would
come nearer doing justice than any
other way.

APPEARS TO BE A FRAME-UP
The proceedings in the Jackson

ville city council against Pleasant

Holt, alderman from the fourth
ward, look to the Star more like a
political frame-up than an attempt
to arrive at a just conclusion.
Wednesday night, at the meeting
of the council, the president, Frank
L. Dancy, who is a well known sup supporter
porter supporter of Mr. Stockton, introduced
and passed without objection, resolu resolutions
tions resolutions calling for the appointment of
a committee to investigate, in con connection
nection connection with Holt, the charges made
by "Dixie" as to illegal registration
in that county. President Dancy, in introducer
troducer introducer of this resolution, appoint appointed
ed appointed on this committee five members,
who are recognized as being support supporters
ers supporters of Mr. Stockton, and politically
antagonistic fo Mr. Holt.
It must be understood that Mr.
Stockton has an investigating com committee
mittee committee at work, which alleges it is
investigating all these matters. Last

week, it arrested a prominent busi-

4 laving been cleared by the courts

and public sentiment of the charges

fcronght against him by Mrs. .Bond

Senator Gore will prosecute the peo

ple who tried to blackmail him

Here's hoping they will all go to the

pen.

ITiewed from a distance, it seems

to the Star that if the people of Mi

ami took both Grace Howell and P

C Cox fifty miles out in the Atlantic
and set them adrift with a bar of

ness man of Jacksonville, L. P. Le Le-land,
land, Le-land, charging him with perjury in
registering, but the members of the
committee themselves withdrew the
charge, apologized and the case never
went to trial. This looks like an ef effort
fort effort on the part of Mr. Stockton, and
his advisers, to connect 'Senator Flet

cher with Holt in all these matters,
because Holt is friendly to him and
is one of his supporters.
The Star knows little about the
charges this committee is going to
investigate, and Senator Fletcher
has nothing to do with them, but it
does seem that if 'Mr. Stockton has

any direct evidence against Holt, the

proper course would be to take the
matter direct to the courts, where

Holt would .have an opportunity to

defend himself.

It must be evident to any one that
t
f the investigating committee made

up of men opposed to Holt brings in

report adverse to him its finding

will be very widely open to suspic-

on.
Mr. Stockton and his supporters

must be hard up for campaign ma

terial if they are trying to discredit

Senator Fletcher by saying that the

senator is depending on negro votes

because Holt is friendly to him. If
they can't prove anything against

even the terrible Holt without pack

ing an investigating committee

against him, their case must be very

weak.

It is certainly unfair to charge

Senator, Fletcher, who has been in
Washington the past month attend attending
ing attending to his work, and who yesterday

attended the funeral oj Senator Ba-

con in Macon, with the unDroven

statements of Dixie.

The Star has nothing to do with
Holt and his troubles. Xo doubt he
will be able to take care of himself.
Dixie has been making such fierce
charges against Holt that much of
what it says against him is being
discredited. The charge it made
against him, that he was registering
negroes to vote in the democratic

primary, has been

In a letter to W. Wi Prescott, edi-:
tor of the 'Protestant Magazine, pub-!

lished in Washington, President Wil Wilson
son Wilson has denied emphatically that his
correspondence is handled with' re religious
ligious religious prejudice by his secretary,
Joseph P. Tumulty. The corres correspondence
pondence correspondence made public by the maga magazine
zine magazine follows:
Asks Statement of President
Washington, D. C, Jan. 15, 1914.
The President.
Sir: I learn from personal inter interviews
views interviews and correspondence that there
is a widespread feeling among Prot Protestants
estants Protestants that it is practically impos impossible
sible impossible for any communication relat relating
ing relating to the activity of the Roman
Catholic church to reach you person personally,
ally, personally, for the reason that all such let letters
ters letters are withheld from you by your
private secretary, Mr. Tumulty. It
is unfortunate both lor you and for
the country that such an impression
prevails and it seems to have some
foundation.
Before dealing with the subject in
this magazine, I am writing to ask
for a statement from you which
might be of service in restoring con confidence
fidence confidence among some of the '"best citi citizens
zens citizens of this republic. Any reply,
however brief, showing that the let letter
ter letter actually reached you would be a
source of satisfaction.

When you were governor of New

Jersey I wrote you concerning some
criticisms of your course in which
you were charged with showing fav favoritism
oritism favoritism to the Roman Catholic
church, and your reply placed the

matter in such a light that I did not
reem it necessary to make any ref

erence to the subicct. My desire is
to deal fairly with public men, and
hence this letter.
Thanking you for any attention
which you may give to my request,
I am, yours very truly,
W. W. Prescott.
The President's Reply
The president's reply under date
of Jan. 19, 1914, follows:
My dear Sir: Allow me to ac acknowledge
knowledge acknowledge the receipt of your letter
of Jan. 15 and to thank you for your
candor in writing me.
I beg leave to assure you that the
impression that any part of my cor correspondence
respondence correspondence is withheld from me in

any circumstances by my secretary
on account of religious predilections
on his-part is absurdly and utterly
false.
I venture to say that no president
ever had more frank and satisfac satisfactory
tory satisfactory relations with his secretary
than I have with mine. The whole
of my correspondence is constantly
open to me. Mr. Tumulty is more
prompt perhaps to call my attention

to matters in which his prejudice is
supposed to'be engaged than to other
matters of relative indifference.
Of course, I need hardly add I am
not speaking from an impression,
but from knowledge of just how my
correspondence is handled.
Sincerely yours,
Woodrow Wilson.

It has been suggested that an active

association to assist local cattlemen
in the attainment of these purposes.

At Memphis, Tenn., on December

10th and 11th, 1913, the first regular
meeting was held and a constitution

and by-laws adopted fixing the an

nual membership dues at $2.00 per an

num. At that meeting a large num

from all the southern states, from

Kentucky to Florida and from Vir

ran high. Every southern cattleman

owes it as his duty to join this as

stock men and farmers of the south.

Some of the things advocated at

the convention are:

1. That the railroads put cheaper

rates on breeding cattle.

2. That the government stop all

interstate shipment of tick-infested
cattle. This includes cattle on the

way to market for immediate slaugh

ter as well as animals being used for

stocking purposes.

Resolutions were passed soliciting
the co-operation of the oil mills of
the south in building up the cattle

industry and suggesting, to the bank bankers
ers bankers of the south the importance of

making cattle a basis of credit.

Professor Holden, director of Ag Agricultural
ricultural Agricultural Extension Department of

the International Harvester Company

of New Jersey, addressed the conven

tion. He considered the organization

of the southern cattlemen the begin

ning of successful live stock growing

on a large scale and the opening gun

for the intelligent diversification of
crops in the cotton belt, He was very
enthusiastic in his remarks relative
to the future of the south, and offered

to assist tne people in every way

the association.

called at the bank and found
not the least difficulty in gain-

"I remember you quite well, sir."
said Garavei 'La Tosca.' Since you
are a friend of Mrs. Cortlandt I shall
be delighted to serve you."
"I have something very particular to
say to you." Kirk began diffidently,
"but I don't just know how to get at
it."
Garavei smiled graciously. "1 am a
business man."
"This isn't business," blurted Kirk;
"it's much more important. I want to
have it over as quickly as possible, so
I'll be frank. I have met your daugh daughter.

widened in a look of disconcerting in intensity

"I met her before that night, out at

woods I stumbled upon your swim swimming

"But even so!"
"Well, I loved her the first Instant I
saw her.
"I knew nothing of this. If you had
reason to think that your suit wbuld
be acceptable, why did you not come
to me before?"
"I couldn't r didn't know your
name. .1 was nearly crazy because 1
couldn't so much as learn the name of
the girl I loved!" Kirk plunged con confusedly
fusedly confusedly into the story of his meeting
with Chiquita.
That is a strange tale." said Senor
Garavei when he had finished. "If you
would tell me something about your yourself

to regard this affair."
"Gladly though there isn't much to

to give me a fresh start If I should lose

size of it.' He paused, vaguely con conscious
scious conscious that he had not done himself
justice. "My father is a railroad man
In Albany. N. Y."
"In what capacity is he employed,
may I ask?"
Kirk grinned at this. and. seeing a
copy of Bradstreet's on the banker's
table, turned to his father's name,
which he pointed out rather shame-,
facedly. Senor Garavei became in instantly
stantly instantly less distant.
"Of course the financial world knows
Darwin K. Anthony." said he. "Even
we modest merchants of the tropics
have heard of him. and that his son
should seek to win success upon his
own merits is greatly to his credit 1

"I ought to tell you. sir. that 1 am

most I don't want his money. It's
easier to make money than I thought
But I must succeed, for his sake and
my own."
"May I inquire the cause of this
estrangement?'
"Oh. general worthlessness on my
part. 1 suppose. Come to thirk of It. I
must have been a good deal of a cross.
I never did anything very fierce,
though. He smiled a little sadly.
quick light of thought flashed
through the banker's eyes. He was a
keen judge of men.
"Well, well." he said, with a trace
of impatience, "there Is no need to go
Into the matter further. Your pro

is commendable.
"Does that mean yon won't even al allow

"It would be useless."
"But I love Gertrudis. said Kirk,
desperately.
Garavei looked a trifle pitying.
"You are by no means the first" he
said: "I have been besieged by many

"What we call a 'bad Catholic?'"
"Yes. sir. Rut if I were not it

"Who?" The father started.

in confusion: "to myself, of course."

The truth was that Andres GaraVel
had not hesitated long after that
memorable night at the Tivoll before
accepting the brilliant prize which the
Cortland t had dangled so alluringly
before his eyes, and the decision once
made, he hud entered into the scheme
with all his soul. He was wise enough,
however, to leave his destiny largely
in their hau'ds.
It was not long after Kirk's visit to
the bank-that Garavei, during, a conference-
with, the Cortlandts. took oc occasion
casion occasion to bring up the young man's
name. Cortlandt had been called to
the telephone, and Edith was left free
to answer without constraint.

not invite the young fellow to his

He could put a stop to the affair at
any time. Besides, despite his frequent
protestations to the contrary, he was
somewhat influenced by his daughter's
desire for more liberty. It was not fair
to her. he thought in his heart, that
she should know only Ramon. One rea reason

musically in his ears.

"Not to me as yet. but he surely must

"Nonsense! When the time comes

be very glad when it is over. He
looked more pale, more bloodless, more
world weary than ever.
"You need have no fear that It will
cause serious trouble between you and
the general. Mrs. Cortlandt assured
Garavei. "Ramon hould be able to
effect peace, no matter what happens.
"Ah. 1 am not so sure that there will
be a marriage between Gertrudis and

It was about this time, perhaps two

"1 gathered the Impression he was

his subordinate shrewdly. "I boosted

"Is he short and thick set?
"No; tall and thin. As Kirk merely

"I do."
"It goes without saying that I'd like

"Well, the old man has had another

"Then you have seen the colonel?"
"No, but I have seen Mrs. Cortlandt.

why I was worried when this Clifford
party appeared."
"There is something. 1 suppose. 1
ought to tell you. although it doesn't
amount to much. 1 was mixed up in
a scrape the night I left New York. A
plain clothes man happened to get his
head under a falling bottle and nearly
died from the effects."
"This Clifford party is stopping at
the Hotel Central. Better 'look him
over."
"I will." said Kirk, feeling more con concern
cern concern than he cared to show, but his
apprehension turned out to be quite
unfounded. On inspection Clifford
proved to bear no resemblance what whatever
ever whatever to Williams, nor did he -seem to
have any concealed design. He was a
good sort, apparently, with a knack of
making himself agreeable, and In the
weeks that followed he and Kirk be became
came became quite friendly. Meanwhile, no
word had come from Senor Garavei,
and Kirk was beginning to fret But
just as he' had reached the limit of his
patience he received a note which
transported him with joy.
Senor Andres Garavei, he read, would
be In the city on the following Tuesday
evening, and would be pleased to have
him call. '
Even with his recent experiences of
Spanish etiquette Kirk hardly realized

been made to him. ne knew nothing
