these overtures has so far been nil.
According to the present schedule,
a Rodman resident has the option of
either going to Ocala to transact any
business he may have, and doing
that in about two hours, oroming
over to Palatka and remaining here
two nights before he can have time
to do any buying and return. Of
course, he may be a millionaire and
own an automobile, but we are not
considering these so much as we do
the ordinary common or garden in

these to have this annoying state of

mandy Normandy limped into port about a

could not cope with it.
Though Capt. DeBhur, when lie
left with the old bark, had been giv given
en given no intimation of what is to be
done with her after she arrives at
her home port, it is believed that the
Normandy is now sailing the seas for
the last time under her own power.
She is of the old, square-rigged type
and many of her kind, built even in
later years, have been cut down and
converted into coal-carrying barges.
With her four tall masts sweep sweeping
ing sweeping the sky, her square, white sails,
bellying from the cross-arms and her
long, slender bow-sprit reaching out
over the sea, the Normandy was
typical of forty years ago when she
passed out of the mouth of the Sa Savannah

her nose to the north.
There are only a fewT such -vessels
as the Normandy now in commission.
Hundreds of them have gone down
in storms that have swept this coast
and others during the last twenty
years and have been replaced by
schooners and steamers. Most of
those that outlived their usefulness
as sailing vessels have been cut
down and are now being used as
cargo-carrying barges, to wed by sea seagoing

With the sailing of the Normandy,
Savannah has probably been the last
of the old square-rigged ships. Time

careful construction of these great,
romantic vessels, but the scarcity of

THE OCALA EVENING STAR, THURSDAY, MARCH 26, 1914
Belleview, March 26. 'A notice
that a civil service examination will
be held in Ocala, April 11, for the
puprpose of filling a vancancy at
Burbank, Florida, for rural delivery delivery-carrier,
carrier, delivery-carrier, is posted in nearly all of the
post offices thruout Marion county.
It is not generally known that any
eligible citizen residing in Marion
county may take this examination
for rural letter carrier, and that if
they pass same, their name is put on
the register, placing them in line to
fill any vacancy that might occur, at
any office that has a rural free de delivery
livery delivery attached. The position of
rural carrier is a good one and pays
good money, is a steady year 'round
job, sure pay and as a rule, the car
rier makes more money than the
postmaster. So therefore, every in
telligent young man, without a regu
lar occupation, should take this ex
amination, and put yourself in line
for a good, steady job.
Each week I will endeavor to
give some little bit of useful infor
mation to people who use the post

The dismasted, battered hulk of a
to oe almost level wnu uiu waves, is,
of course, a very great danger to navi
gation, especially in foggy weather.
The majority of derelicts are sailing
ships laden with timber. They may
have been dismasted and rendered ab absolutely
solutely absolutely helpless in storms, partly de demolished
molished demolished by fire, by collision with an
iceberg, or by the mere force of the
waves themselves. The crew, unable
to make their ship seaworthy, may
have abandoned it in the boats, or
have been rescued by some passing
vessel, but, whatever their fate, their
forsaken ship, if laden with wood, re remains
mains remains practically unsinkable and is
driven hither and thither over the
ocean, at the mercy of the winds and
In course of time the swelling of the
wood cargo may burst the hull asun asunder,
der, asunder, but until this happens, or until
the vessel is driven ashore and broken
into matchwood against some ironshod
coast, it will remain a terror to pass passing
ing passing ships.
Now and again a steamer may be
rendered helpless owing to its ma machinery
chinery machinery becoming disabled by shortage
of coal, by fire or by the loss of its
rudder or propeller in heavy weather.
Its crew may decide to abandon it and
take to the boats, but if they neglect
to open the seacocks on their depar-
their ship may float for many a
day. The erratic movements of
e derelicts are almost uncanny.
Norao very long ago a Norwegian sail-
ng ship called the Crown left Nova
Scotia lor a South American port. It
was laden with timber, and while still
in the North Atlantic ocean was over
taken by a terrible storm, which dis
masted and left it a battered wreck.
The crew, realizing it was useless to
remain on board, abandoned it and
took to the boats, never to be heard
of again, but their ship, although it
vanished completely for no less than
three months, was sighted at the end
of this time on the edge of the Sargas
so sea, a good 700 miles away from
where disaster overtook it. Soon aft-
terward it wras sighted off Bermuda,
but then disappeared again, and may
still be drifting about the ocean.
Another sailing ship was abandoned
off Cape May. The crew endeavored
to destroy it by fire on their departure,
but, although it blazed furiously, the
sodden, waterlogged cargo eventually
extinguished the flames. A few weeks
later the hulk was off the English
coast and It was thought it would be
dashed to pieces on the shore, but,
altering its course, it proceeded to the
southward along the French coast and
was next seen near the Azores. Hav
ing got thus far, it proceeded to cross
the Atlantic, and after covering fully
6,000 miles In its wanderings, finally
drifted ashore near Panama.
Derelicts are sometimes salved and
bring in a large sum in salvage money
to the crews of the ships who tow
them into port, On one occasion an
American steamer bound for Liverpool
with a cargo of cotton ran out of coal
off the north coast of Ireland. The
sea was running high, signals of dis distress
tress distress were made to a passing steamer,
which passed a tow rope to the help helpless
less helpless ship. But the towing wire snapped
and the crew were accordingly tak
on board the newcomer, while the dis
abled vessel was left to drift
A Liverpool tug heard of the affair,
and being doubtless aware of the great
value of the cotton cargo, determines
to find the derelict and to tow it in
harbor. After a protracted search
came upon it and eventually took
into Belfast, little worse for Its buff
ing. The enterprising tug netted
less than 7,960 for its share In
proceedings. By an act of parliaxne
passed in 1896, the master of any B
ish ship sighting a derelict Is bou
to report the fact to the
Lloyds agent, eo that If the abandoned

war may be sent out to destroy or!

And bid it blossom there.
There in the Shepherd's bosom,

The Trail of a War Party.
Before the un's rays touched the
summit of the bluff we were climbing
the sides of the ravine, with light
packs on our shoulders. Brady led the
way, tireless and watchful, his long
rifle held ready In the crook of his
arm, his alert eyes searching out the
ground ahead. Behind him lumbered
Schultz, heavy-footed, and grumbling

For three days we encountered noth nothing

We made a detour to the right,
plunging straight forward into the un unbroken

gait, his trained iron muscles tireless,
while I urged the breathless soldier to
new exertions, frightening him by con constant

at hand. The perspiration rolled down
his face, yet he kept cloee at Brady's
heels, falling flat on the ground dur during

about us already in gloom, we sudden suddenly

great trees, and stood on the shore of
a lake girded with woods. A few hun hundred

rocky island, dense with trees, rose
above the mirrored surface. After one
swift glance about the line of shore
Brady's eyes rested on this haven,
as though questioning its feasibility as
a night camp. There was a yellow
tinge to the intervening water, sug suggestive

He led the way, and we followed in
single file, our packs and rifles held
high overhead. The water deepened
until it reached Schultz's armpits, but
there was no perceptible current, and
the sand underfoot was firm as rock.
Deep purple shadows seemed to shut
us in, as we clambered up the steep
bank of the island, our clothes drip-

across the darkened surface toward

that I took it at first to be a clump of

I dropped to my knees, and studied
the dim outline, which the night ren rendered

assumed more definite shape a one one-story

rear, and an outside chimney forking

"What do you make of it?" asked
Brady in a whisper, as though doubt doubting

"It's a house, all right," I answered.
"Some French hunter's shack."

I moved forward slowly, foot by foot,
feeling blindly with one hand, the other
grasping my rifle. I came to a rude
.bench, home-made without nails,
touched a small table with crossed
legs, holding nothing but an empty
pewter bowl, felt the shaggy skin of
some animal fastened against the log
wall, and then a few articles of warm
clothing dangling from wooden pins.
These were rough garments, made of
skins, with a single coarse shirt. Be Beyond

with -the latch of a door. As I touched
this the menacing growl of some ani animal

stepped back, startled, -unnerved, and
in my recoil, came into contact with a
man. A hand like iron gripped me,
but it was Brady's voice that spoke:
"From the other room," he said
shortly, "a dog."
"A dog! Then why hasn't he
"Because he is not that kind, I
reckon; a big brute from his growl.
Did you find anything?"
I told him briefly.
"Fireplace on my side, two chairs
and an ax In the corner," he added
shortly. "Nobody home but the dog, I
reckon, but we will have to fight it out
with him, before we take possession.
Stand where you are until I feel out

the latch; well have to brain the
brute. Don't open until I say so, and
then only about a foot. Brace yourself
to hold it firm, and keep your gun
ready; I've got the ax."
I took my position, but with heart
beating rapidly, and waited. The dog,
as though realizing danger, flung him himself
self himself with full force against the door,
and gave one deep bark of savage
ferocity. Brady touched my hand, lo locating
cating locating the opening. Then there was
fin instant of silence.
"Now!" he said.
I lifted the wooden latch, gripping
with both hands, my shoulders and
foot braced. There was a fierce leap
of the brute, so sudden as to cause me
to give back, the thud of descending
ax, a howl of pain and rage, the ugly
snap of jaws. Coarse hair swept my
hands; there was another blow, the
sound of a falling body; then the helve
of the ax 6truck my foot. Back and
forth on the dirt floor man and brute
struggled, crashing into the table, and
overturning it Brady uttered one
oath; then the dog snarled, and lay
still, while I stood with the ax poised,
unable to tell which was which in the
darkness. Something moved, and I
took a step forward.
"All right," he said breathlessly, "I

There were a few pieces of wood piled
up on the hearth, and a moment later,
the curling red flames revealed the en entire

bench, the sleeve of his blouse ripped
into shreds, blood dripping from hie
fingers, and sinking into the earth

of shaggy hair, lay the dog in a heap,
