Teacher Can anyone tell me who are citizens of the United States?
Johnnie Anyone born on Uncle Sam's territory 21 years ago or any foreigner who has lived here long enough and has taken the oath of allegiance.
Teacher Correct Now tell me who of our citizens are wholly of partly disfranchised? Johnnie Our women, our convicts and men who own no real estate
Teacher Correct. Now Johnnie, can you tell me why they do not vote?
Johnnie Our forefathers thought our mothers too pure and good to mix in politics, and our convicts too bad; our lawmakers think that no man who does not
own a portion of old mother earth has a right to vote on Bond issues for public improvements. For instance, a man lives in Florida and the state should vote for
bonds to build a highway, and he owned no real estate, he would not be allowed a vote; or if he lives in Marion County, and owns no real estate in this county, he
could not vdte for county bonds, for hard roads or other improvements; or, if he lived in the City of Ocala, and is not a freeholder, as bad as we need streets a sew sewerage
erage sewerage system and a larger electric .light plant, and we should vote for bonds for these purposes, he would be disfranchised.
Teacher Now, Johnnie, can you tell me how a man with only a little money can own a piece of real estate?
Johnnie No Mam; but B. H. Seymour can. His office is in the Cam Building at 21 North Magnolia Street.

would be unnecessary if a Bureau of

I have mentioned larceny as one

in financing railways nroDerties. Is
that too harsh a word for the al
most countless repetitions of acts in

acts for which common criminals

"Reliable authorities have stat
ed," said Secretary Lane in his letter
to a congressman, already referred
too, "that the actual cost of con construction
struction construction of the Union pacific Rail Railroad

dollars. The cost to the railroad
company of this construction was
ninety-three and a half million dol dollars,

long time ago that some one may
say. Yes, It was; and railway high

Instead of the Union Pacific's beg beggarly
garly beggarly plunder and swag of forty forty-three
three forty-three million dollars, the swag and
plunder wrecked the Xew Haven
road in this present period has been
estimated at two hundred million
dollars. The Frisco's wreckage was
brought about in the same by the
grafting of still unenumerated but
certainly many millions. If such
things be not larceny they are as
flat burglary as was ever committed.
Thru all the railroad years the
way Is. marked 'by such deals as
these and by sucfi so-called legiti

of the Erie to half a million dollars

the. deals by which the railways of
the country have been used to pile
up ill-gotten fortunes instead of to
develop the land for the people..

That was more than six years

On their own showing the private

must be performed. If that is not

They fought the Alaska railroad bill
as they fought the Panama canal,
for they do not wish the proof given
of what the government can do in
the way of railway construction and

the most unfavorable conditions.
Tho railways themselves have
brought the government ownership

off that step by a persistent cam campaign

The experience of other countries

of our opposite experience. "The

Chemnitz in 1907, reported. "In
most respects," he continued, "the
growth has been more harmonious
and better adapted to meet the
natural economic needs than has
been the case in the United States
under corresponding conditions.
This is due in large measure to the
fact that, most of the railroad lines
are under government control and to
the consequent uniformity In man management

The square-deal effect on railway
labor, and incidentally on all labor,
with one central management of the
whole transportation system in gov government

United States statistics show, as
Professor Scott Nearing has set out
in his Wages in the United States,
that twenty-two per cent of the near nearly
ly nearly three-quarter million railway
workers in the United States receive
a wage of less than eight dollars a
week. The figures are for 1909, "but

Saving on Bond Interest

guarantee to every railroad worker
a wage that would at least support
him and, his family up to the stand standard

It would not get the money for this

from the savings of the vast waste

Of the first item alone, consider

The saving, regardless of the in interest

A few years ago, as some one has

and many lesser lights in the railway
world are stating -without reserva reservation
tion reservation that government ownership of
railways is coming, and they are pre predicting
dicting predicting that all kinds of disasters
will happen when it does come.
If private ownership is a success,
if regulation is effective and satisfac satisfactory,
tory, satisfactory, why is there such a widespread
demand for government ownership
of railways and no demand at all for
private ownership of parcel post?
Universally, railway systems have
been founded "by private capital; but
today practically every country in
the world, except the United States
and Great Britain, have entered on
the project of public ownership.
No railway system once taken by
the government has been permanent permanently

According to Professor Richard
T. (Ely: "Our American railroads are

day today finished moving the huge safety
deposit vault from the Commercial
Bank building, which it has stood
for nearly a quarter of a century, to
its new quarters in the Metropolitan

in the safety deposit department.
This safe required three days to
move, weighs 22,000 pounds and is
by far the heaviest safe in the city;
In fact, safes of this kind are no

UNJUST TO SEMINOLES
WRITER CRITICIZES COURSE OF
THE UNITED STATES.
Indians Justified in Their Resistance
to Removal From Their Lands,
According to the Rev. Thomas
It was 68 years ago that the Dade
massacre took place near Fort Drane,
In Florida, writes the Rev. Thomas H.
Gregory. Major Dade and his com command
mand command of 100 men were attacked by the
Seminoles and completely wiped out,
only four of the force escaping.
The head and front of the Seminole
war, in the course of which this
"massacre" occurred, was Osceola, as
pure a patriot and as gallant a
fighter as ever broke into history.
The Seminoles were dissatisfied
with a treaty that a few chiefs had
made for their emigration west of
the Mississippi, and when Gen.
Thompson was sent to remove them
by force they arose, under the leader leadership
ship leadership of Osceola, and began fighting
for the land that had come down
to them from their fathers.
They did just what the Americans
would certainly have done under simi similar
lar similar conditions. The United States
troops were Invaders and the Semi-
coles resisted them. Major Dade and
Ills men were invaders and the Semi Seminoles
noles Seminoles killed them. The fact that a
little bunch of chiefs, assisted by
American "diplomacy" and firewater,
had made a "treaty" giving away
their country did not seem sufficiently
sacred to the red men to justify them
In submitting to the American claims.
Osceola fought like a lion for two
years against vastly superior num numbers,
bers, numbers, and in 1837 was made a prison prisoner
er prisoner by General Jesup, while holding a
conference with him under a flag of
truce, and imprisoned in Fort Moul Moultrie
trie Moultrie until his death which took place
two years later.
Beaten In the field and bereft of
their great leader, the Seminoles re retired
tired retired to the swampy fastnesses of
the everglades and kept up the fight
for five years longer, successfully re resisting
sisting resisting the onslaughts of more than
10,000 American troops. To this day
the descendants of the Seminoles are
to be found in the big Florida swamp,
. preserving in their features and in
their courage the characteristics of
their stalwart and gamy ancestors.
Osceola had every cause to hate the
' white man. His wife was seized as a
- slave, and when he protested and
threatened revenge he was seized by
Gen Thompson and imprisoned for
six days in irons. For this outrage
Osceola killed Thomsson. for doinc
whlcn he was dubbed a "ferocious sav savage"
age" savage" and declared an outlaw.
Great is the mystery of the white
man's justice! It is no wonder that
the children of the forest were never
able to understand the ethics and re religion

London reports the discovery of
the meanest man of whom there is
any record. This Englishman has just
been divorced from hi3 wife for what,
do you guess? Wrong. You couldn't
guess it in a week of Sundays. The
mean fellow carried live bees around
in his pockets. Every time his wife
went to examine his pockets to see if
they needed mending or for other
reasons see any jest book she was
cruelly stung. Unable to endure such
treatment, she secured a divorce. She
felt that one of the most ancient of
wifely duties and privileges that of
inspecting the bottom of her hus husband's
band's husband's pockets was not only inter interfered

torture. The man, of course, argued
that he had a right to cany what he
pleased in his pockets but the grant granting

denial of this right. So man may
well begin to ponder this question:

I Con-I stance went through an eternity of
torture before she plucked up courage
to take down her hands, remove her
puiups and slide away.
Soon she was safe out of sight. She
stopped near a swift little brook
i where the sunset was mirrored rosily
in the clear water. The stillness of
j the woods soothed her a little, and
. she began to plan how she could find
! the others and get home without ac-
cepting Henry's escort. They were

; had brought Mamie.
I Her shoes still in her hand, she sat
j down, curling her feet under her, the
tnougnt striking her with shame that
she loved Henry Peyton before he
had spoken of love to heri
As she sat tfeere she heard a crash
in the bushes and in a moment Jack
Manning, whom she hated, came
swaggering up to her.
"Hello! Guess you and I'll have to
console each other. We seem to be
deserted." He seated himself beside
her, scanning her admiringly with his
bold, dark eyes.
She flushed in distress.
"Say, little one, I'll take off my
shoes, -too, and we'll go wading. Is
that what you came for?" She shook
"I don't like you. Go away! Please
I'm tired and want to think."
"You can think when you're older
and not so pretty. Thinking's no job
for a beauty come, console me for
j Mamie. She wouldn't mind consoling
Constance jumped up, snatching her
shoes, and ran away from him as fast
as she could. It was growing dusk
and she was timid indeed deathly
afraid, but of him more than of a
whole lonely forest. He looked after
her a moment, bit off the end of a
fresh cigar and muttered to himself:
"Turned down, eh? Went too fast
with her. Is Peyton crazy to forget
a peach like that for Mame?" He lit
! his elenr ar.d r-ntcred off. Finally
i he found the others grouped under the
: trees preparing to go home.
Presently Henry brought Mamie
j back, the girl sober-faced, her eyes a
little red, but the man was very quiet.
"Where's Constance?" he demanded.
Mrs. Turner, the chaperon, did not

she remarked, significantly, "and it's

I saw her go pff by herself." Henry
A half hour later in the deep dusk,
thoroughly alarmed, he was still
searching. He called her name aloud,
but she did not answer. What had
become of her? His heart failed him.
Why had he left her even a moment?
Why had he bothered to save a girl
like Mame from her own undoing. If
she wanted to play with Manning till
a good chap like Thorne was sick of
heir it was her business.
"Constance," he called. "Connie!"
Then going around a big tree, he came
upon her white little figure huddled
against the trunk. Her hands in her
absurd fashion were over her ears.
She was crying softly. He rushed up
to her, taking down her hands and
shaking her a bit from sheer relief to
find her safe.
"Connie darling! you frightened
me to death! What made you hide?"
He drew her toward him, but she
freed herself firmly, shaking her head.

her to him despite herself.
"Making love to Mamie Travis? I'm
not a fool. I was lecturing her within
an inch of her life about that scamp

it but I've known her a long time."
Constance clung close to him.
"He came down to the brook and
bothered me I ran away."
"I'll settle with him, Connie. But
do you love me, dear?"
She leaned willingly against him.
"You know I do," she said. "You
know. Will you take me home now?"
He had just tucked her hand under his
arm when the others came looking for
them both. Together they walked to toward
ward toward the trolley line, and the night
was sweet to them.

afternoon and is all excited over the

Mrs. R. R. Carroll, Merris Carroll

net full was caught and, as it never
fails, large schools ,of trout were
following them and bit just as fast
as the hooks could be thrown into
