federal appointment. Ocala Star.
And yet, when the candidate, the
politician or the office-holder wants
anything, the newspaper man is al always
ways always the first one he appeals to. The
newspaper man "gives up" jeadily
and without urging-his time, his
talent and his space and sometimes,
his conscience, when regard for the
politician prevents his exposing
something that ought to be exposed.
But the obligation to the newspaper
man always sits very lightly on the
politician; he accepts it as mere mat matter
ter matter of course. Some day, not far
distant, the newspaper men of the
country, as a whole, will realize what
colossal chumps they have been all
these years, and they will get to together

politician just as they treat other

Congressman Robert F. Broussard,
of Louisiana, is advocating the
breeding of domesticated hippopota
mus in that state to take the place

cheapen the cost of meats. At first
his scheme was laughed at, but ag

t would be feasible. The type sug

No doubt hippopotamus cutlets
would go well with a hungry man's
bill of fare. We don't know just
what it would cost to start a herd,
or even get a pair of young hippos,
but the information can no doubt be
had from Mr. Broussard.
It would be quite an attraction to
tourists along the Oklawaha to see
bunch of hippopotamus playing
with alligators in the waters of that
world famous stream. The Nile
would then have nothing on the Ok
lawaha. The government dredges
are now straightening out the curves
in the Oklawaha and this will leave
numerous bayous and they could be
used for hippo feeding grounds.

this proposition, Florida would still

A Nebraska farmer was crossing
his pasture with a friend. As the
men walked along they discussed
the coming election. The farmer
believed in license and defended -his
belief with the usual arguments of
"control and regulation." More
than that, he declared that he did
not feel inclined to vote against the
saloonkeeper of the little village for
he was a good fellow, always ready
to assist a neighbor, and his license
helped to keep down taxes. At
length, as if to dismiss the subject,
he exclaimed, "Well, what is this

Alcohol and the Toll it Takes
"One of the reasons why I quit
was because I noticed I was going to
funerals oftener than usual," says
Samuel G. Blythe in "The Old
Game," published in the February
7th issue of the Saturday Evening
Post. The story of a moderate
drinker, who for reasons physical
and mental, decided to "beat the 'old
game with water" is worthy of a
careful reading; especially so are the
last few paragraphs which we quote: j

WOMAN'S CLUB 'f
Mrs. K. 31. Ofcborn, Editor for April
That improvement in home life,

a leading feature in the Woman's

most interested in the work. The
home must always be the center

As the wife she is the councellor;
as the mother, she is the guide and
protector the one looked up to in
all difficulties by the children, who
consider her infallable. Great indeed

moral welfare of our children. That

that 1 became down in mind, and as help helpless

of shape. AVas unable to do any work.
I began taking Cardui, the woman's
tonic, and got relief from the very first
dose. By the time I had taken 12 bot bottles,
tles, bottles, my health was completely restored.
I am now 4S years years old, but feel as
good as I did when only 16.
Cardui certainly saved me from losing
my mind, and I feel it my duty to speak
in its favor. I wish I had some power
over poor, suffering women, and could
make them know the good it would do
If you suffer from any of the ailments
peculiar to women, it will certainly be
worth your while to give Cardui a trial.
It has been helping weak women for
more than 50 years, and will help you,
Try Cardui. Your druggist sells it.

We Meet Them With Rifles.
Small as my peek hole was, just
large enough to admit a rifle barrel, it
yet afforded clear view to east and
south of the house. As I gazed, striv striving
ing striving to determine what the various
movements meant, and from which
direction to anticipate final attack, an
Indian crept out into the open, crawl crawling
ing crawling on his etomach like a snake
through the-grass. Others followed,
until a dozen wriggling forms began
to advance inch by inch, hugging the
ground so closely I could scarcely per perceive
ceive perceive their movement. I heard a slight
sound within, as Brady quietly thrust
forward his rifle.
"Wait a moment," I called to him,
not venturing to glance about, but
holding up one hand in warning, "it is
a long shot yet, and we must make
every one tell. Walt until the first

ly. sharply. "Let them have it fire!"
The three guns spoke at once, the
emoke of their discharge for an in instant
stant instant blotting out the scene, yet not
before I saw war-bonnet crumple up
beside the stump, and a warrior just
behind him leap into the air with
both arms flung out. I gripped the
fresh gun beside me, and fired again
into a huddle of fleeing figures, hear hearing
ing hearing the sharp crack of the two oth others,
ers, others, as the blue smoke blew back into
my eyes. One Indian fell forward
clawing at the ground; another stag staggered
gered staggered wildly, yet kept his feet. A
chorus of yells rent the air, and the
fleeing forms vanished into the fringe
of woods. A fusillade of bullets
chugged harmlessly into the protect protecting
ing protecting logs, blue puffs of smoke rising
between the distant trees, but nothing
remained visible for us to fire at.
Brady, glanced about from his loop loophole,
hole, loophole, and motioned me With his hand.
I crossed hurriedly to join him, again
"What is it? Can you guess what
they mean to do?" m
"No, but they seem to be forming
there to the right; bend down here;
see, back among those trees. Ay! and
your red-coat Is among the devils, I've
caugnt glimpse of him twice."
I grasped the situation in a glance.
Brady moved to the next loop-hole,
and knelt down. Opposite me I could
distinguish an Indian or two, skulking
in the tree shadows, well out of range
sentries, no doubt, stationed to guard
against any possiblity of our escape.

once did I catch a glimpse of the red

of a huge tree, suddenly outlined by a
ray of sun finding opening through the
leaves above. As I caught view of

sound there was a shout of command,
emphasized by the discharge of a

the devils come. It was as if hell had

"Shawnees!" roared Brady. "Give

Describe what followed no man

action, no two seconds the same, I
fired twice, three times, leaping back
to grasp a gun from the bench, and
groping my way through smoke. My
eyes smarted, perspiration streamed
down my face, I heard the bark of
rifles, voices calling within, wild echo echoing

my rifle I could distinguish the naked
forms of savages leaping amid the
smoke wreaths, stumbling, clutching
at the air with empty hands. Then all

if by magic. Smoke clung to the
ground, yet amid its swirls I could
perceive no movement; the fierce yell yelling

hand reached instinctively for powder

roar of pain, and blows crashed
against the barred door. I thrust my
rifle forward a tomahawk struck the
protruding barrel as I pulled trigger,
and I was flung backward to the floor,
blood streaming from my shoulder. I
could hardly breathe in the thick
smoke; I could see nothing, yet out of
the babel of noise I was conscious of
Brady's voice yelling an order:
"The door! Barricade the door!"
I staggered to my feet and dragged
the bench forward; some one gripped
the table along with me, and together
we hurled it on top, our bodies holding
it there. I had dropped my rifle, but
some one thrust another into my hand.
Blood streamed down Into my eyes
from a cut on my forehead, blinding
me so I saw nothing yet my "fingers

thrill of that contact.
"You, Rene! Go back! For God's
