HATE MEETING REPORTS
The long and short haul hearing
at Ocala this week, and which is to
be followed by another hearing at
Kissimmee, will at least give the
people of the state some insight in into
to into railroad freight rates imposed up
on an wno live between tne large
centers of trade. Edwin Spencer Jr.,
of Ocala, author of the long and short
haul bill, was present at the Ocala
hearing in behalf of the laws enforce
ment and he brought out some inter interesting
esting interesting facts. In the first place he
showed by testimony of the railway
witnesses that the rate on grain from
Philadelphia to Tampa was 12 cents
per hundred, while the rate on grain
from Jacksonville to Ocala was 15
cents per hundred. The Seaboard
Air Line's vice president was also
made to admit that he could give no
reason why the rate on cigars from
Tampa to Jacksonville was less than
on the same goods from Tampa to
Ocala, less than half the distance.
If Mr. Spencer doesn't get an order
from the Florida Railway Commis Commission
sion Commission enforcing the long and short
haul law, then the next thing in or order
der order will be to abolish the commis
sion. I- ew, it any of us, have ever
seen any results of this commission
calculated to benefit the people, for
whose protection the commission was
instituted. Palatka News.
The 'Star doesn't think it would be
salubrious to abolish the railroad
commission. The commission is a
body that can do good work for the
people if it does its duty. The prop proper
er proper thing to do is to abolish the pres
ent commissioners and replace them
with men who will serve the people
instead of the corporations.
According to the Kissimmee. cor-
respondent of the Times-Union, the j
railroads had it all their own way at;
the rate meeting in Kissimmee. The
report was under big head lines, part
of which stated:

and we presume spoke for the peo people,

should have spoken at all.
Then followed reports of the state statements

among them Senator Carson, of Os Osceola,

the interior merchant and producer.
In all these, the views of the rail railroad

at length, but those of their oppo opponents

that the force of their arguments
couldn't be discerned by the reader.
More space was devoted to W. E.

than any one else. Mr. Kay's report
was so clear and comprehensive thaH
he probably wrote it himself, as the
difference in style between it and the
balance of the reports was quite

does not deceive the snippers of the
state, and only adds to the contempt
and unbelief in which the Times Times-Union
Union Times-Union is held in every matter where
the interest of the railroads and the
public come in conflict.
The Kissimmee Valley-Gazette,
which like the Star has no railroad
shackles on it, gave a fair account,
from which we take the following:

Mr. Menzies replied that the road

practically nothing; that it cost 72

RECORD DOESNT SEEM
TO RE RECONCILED
The answer to this was that these
through cars of freight are hauled
attached to a train that has to go,
and the cost of the crew, etc., is all
saved, thus placing it at practically
no cost, but when asked by Mr. Bry Bryan
an Bryan if it was not a fact that many of
these through trains carried no local
freight but ran through with its
crew, all the argument was spoiled.

thirteen years on the diamond he is

Moreover, he is a man of charac character

RELIC OF PREHISTORIC AGE
Discovery in Germany Has Aroused
Antiquarians in All Parts
of the World.
The bones of a monster believed tc
be 20,000 years old were recently dis
covered in the garden of a mansion
at Perivale, near Ealing, Germany.
This recent find has led to the belief
that a skull of curious formation, un unearthed
earthed unearthed twelve years ago, is that of a
rhinoceros of the Pleistocene period,
and probably about 20,000 years old.
Authorities have pronounced the head
to be that of a prehistoric monster.
When the excavations were made
there were also discovered parts of a
Roman wall, several human skulls,
coins and spears. The rhinoceros'
skull was found underneath a shed
which has been standing for 30C
years, and the foundations of which
consisted of concrete to a consider
able depth. It was in the course of
removing this concrete and digging
some yards below that the discovery
was made. As little importance was
attached to it, the skull was given
to the gardener, who handed it over
to his children as a plaything. The
lower jaw, teeth, and legs of the ani animal
mal animal have now been found. The skull
itself is about 36 inches in length,
and seems to be water worn. The
leg bones are short and thick, and
this goes to support the theory that
the animal was a rhinoceros.

Then, as the curly-headed juryman

when they grow up the girls pet and

is strewn with roses roses scattered
as you might say, by the white hands

"The result is that curly-headed men

CHAPTER VII. I
Mademoiselle Meets Her Father.
There was evidently no use of my
groping longer in the dark. The girl
was in earnest; she firmly believed
me to be another. There could be
no understanding between us until
this mystery of identity was cleared
away. Her discovery of me here had
only served to increase her halluci hallucination.
"Mademoiselle D'Auvray," I said
earnestly, and I stood bare-headed be-
fore her, "there is a serious mistake j
being made. I am not willing you
should deceive yourself any longer.
! I am going to be perfectly frank with
vou and in return I ask you to be
equally frank with me. Who do you
believe me to be?
She gazed straight into my face, an answering:
swering: answering: "Monsieur Joseph Hayward."
"Of course," smiling, "you heard
the name at Fort Harmar."
But I did not; it was never men
tioned in my presence. I recognized

"Unless one particularly desired to

figure, throwing back her shoulders
and using a clearer English than be before,

ask me to deal with you frankly, mon monsieur;
sieur; monsieur; very well, I will. Down in my
heart I have never trusted you nev never!

to please him. But from our first meet meeting

"You call me a spy," I said soberly,
as her breath failed, "but I am not.
To me this Is all mystery. But what
about yourself, mademoiselle? Why
were you at Fort Harmar? What
purpose brought you there?"
"I went there openly, and in no
disguise," ehe replied, restraining
herself with an effort. "I was not a
spy, nor a victim of curiosity. I tcld

for this night at least. I wish to help
you, and not be held as an enemy.
You have been in my mind ever since
we first met; I have not been able
to drive you from memory. I must
bring you evil news, but my heart is
full of kindness and sympathy. You

had to be killed by a knife thrust.
Then we procured a light with which
to search, and found the body of a
man lying on the floor."
"Murdered; his head crushed in

old man, with snow-white beard."

"The medal was his; he always

"There was a red army jacket flung

stole in through the back door, and

She raised her hands to her head,
with a gesture of despair.
"I I believe part of what you have

trembling. "It it is In my heart to
believe all, but but I cannot. You
are not telling me the truth not all

"I will not listen longer. You are

I stood aside and let her pass, yet
followed as she entered the door. The
interior was black, except for a slight
glow as from a dying fire showing
dimly through the inner door. The
dead dog lay in the. middle of the
floor and she stopped, staring at the

As the yellow flame illumined the
small room, her gaze deserted me, to
rest once more upon the motionless
figure lying near the wall, which
Brady had mercifully covered with a
blanket. She stood still, her hands
clasped, her face like marble. Still
holding the candle in one hand, I
bent down, and drew back gently the
edge of the blanket, exposing the
dead man's face and white beard. In
spite of his violent death the features
were composed, in no way distorted;
he appeared like one lying there
asleep. For a moment the girl never
stirred, her attitude strained, her
wide-open, tearless eyes on the
peaceful upturned countenance. It
seemed to me she had even ceased
