As I view it now, one of the most

the people is that of taking care of
the roads which have been and are
now being built.
If some intelligent method is devis devised

after being devised, is carried out,
the roads can be maintained. My
good friend, Mr. W. D. Cam, in his
campaign outlined some practical
methods of keeping up these costly

It will continue to be a poor busi business
ness business if Marion county continues to
build and neglect to make some in-
telligent and concerted effort to keep
the roads in repair. DeSoto county
leads in the matter of conducting
road building and repairing, particu-
larly as it applies to the utilization of
convict labor. Each of the three state
gangs in this county have permanent
homes for their unfortunates, and the
quarters are comfortable. A small
farm, and a good one, is maintained
by them. The one at Wauchula, for
instance, I visited this week, and
their records show 200 bushels of
sweet potatoes, 90 gallons of syrup,
40 good porkers and right now the
best garden in Florida, and vegeta vegetables

Mr. Roosevelt entered public life
early. He became a member of the
New York assembly in 1882.. A few
years later his health failed and he
successfully tried to restore it by
ranch life in the west.
Returning to New York, he enter entered
ed entered on the 'public career that kept him
before the public gaze until the day
of his death. He was appointed po police
lice police commissioner of New York city
in 1889, and in 1895 became president
of the city police board. In both these

offices he persistently worked for

the efficiency of the police depart department,
ment, department, which was never so good as
under his administration. In 1897,

under McKinley, he became assistant

, secretary of the navy, and the readi

ness of the navy for action in the

Spanish-American war was largely
due to his industry and foresight.

When war broke out, a desk job
was too tame for Roosevelt. With
Colonel; : Leonard Wood, he organized
the famous Rough Riders, who did
such excellent work in the Spanish Spanish-American
American Spanish-American war.' After the fighting
around Santiago was over, and bu-
reacracy was condemning American
soldiers to die of disease in their
camps.' Lieut.-Col. Roosevelt was the
leader among the officers who drew
up the famous "round robin," which
galvanized the torpid war department
into action and saved many lives.
In "1898, Roosevelt was elected gov governor
ernor governor of New York, and he had no
sooner taken his seat than there be began
gan began between him and the old repub republican
lican republican machine the feud which ended
only with his death. In 1900, Tom
Piatt and other leaders of the repub republican
lican republican ring had Roosevelt nominated
for vice-president, believing that they
could thus sidetrack him. But an
assassin's bullet ended McKinley's
life and Roosevelt became president

in 1901, to which office he was also

elected in 1904.
Mr. Roosevelt's administrations
were successful at home and abroad.
At home he introduced many needed

reforms. His national policies tended J
to the good, of all the people and were
against special privileges. He was J
more like a president of the whole

p'eople" than any the country had had J


bold. He took the slack out of Ger Germany
many Germany in regard to the Venezuelan
matter, and by his support of Pana Panama
ma Panama against Colombia ended an im impossible
possible impossible situation and made the great
isthmian canal a possibility. His
sending the American battleship fleet
around the world was a lesson that
would never have been forgotten if
his successors had kept the navy up

to the standard he set. He virtually
brought about peace between Russia
and Japan in 1905, and the effects of
the treaty of Portsmouth were felt in
1914, when Japan was able to give
powerful aid against Germany an
aid that kept the Pacific clear for
American ships when we went into

the war.

At the end of his second term, Mr.

Roosevelt went abroad. He hunted
big game in Africa, and returning
was received with great honor in both

Europe and America. No private

citizen has ever received such ova

tions as'were given him.

In 1912, he was the candidate for

president of the progressive party,
and while defeated himself his can

didacy probably elected Mr. Wilson,

who has for the last two years proven
to be the one indispensable man in
American public life the only man
who could have led the nation to the

heights it has achieved in this great

war trial.

Mr. Roosevelt was offered the pro progressive
gressive progressive nomination again in 1916,
but declined. It was the general feel feeling
ing feeling all over the country at that time

that Mr. Wilson was for peace at any

price. Doubtful of his own election,
and believing that Hughes would take
a strong stand against Germany, Mr.
Roosevelt supported him, but he mis miscalculated
calculated miscalculated both the country and- the
president. It was the country that
was for peace at any price, while Mr.
Wilson was simply biding his time."

During the two years that passed

after the sinking of the Lusitania,

Mr. Roosevelt did the country great
service in his unsparing denunciation

of Germany, his exposure of German

methods and severe rebukes to pacif

v. tin i ii. i j; J

ism. It is aouDtiui mai any man uiu

so much in arousing American spirit.
His work in this regard did not end

with the presidential campaign it
was, in fact, carried on until the last

few months of his life.

Since the war began, however, Mr.
Roosevelt has been a severe and

sometimes unjust critic of the admin
i3tration. the war and navy depart

ments. He has, it is true, called at

tention to a number of deficiencies,
but he refused to give a great deal of

credit that was due. It is probable

that ill health had much to do with


When the war broke out, Mr. Roose

velt wanted to repeat his Spanish Spanish-American
American Spanish-American feat. He offered to raise
an army of 250,000 volunteers pick picked
ed picked men, as were the Rough Riders
for immediate service in Europe. He
asked to serve with them, as their
leader if possible, but in any capacity

that the president might appoint. Mr.

Wilson declined this offer, and the re rebuff

velt. Roosevelt. Mr. Wilson's refusal was laid

to jealousy, but it is probable that
it was made at the advice of army of officers,
ficers, officers, both American and Allied. It
is very likely that he did Mr. Roose Roosevelt
velt Roosevelt a favor by the refusal, for this
war was very different from the
Spanish-American, and Roosevelt's
Cuban laurels might have turned to
French willows.
But at any rate there can be no
doubt of Mr. Roosevelt's sincerity
and patriotism, and his readiness to
lay his own life down if necessary.
Mr. Roosevelt was twice married.
His first wife was Miss Alice Hatha Hathaway
way Hathaway Lee, who died in 1884, leaving a
daughter, Alice, now Mrs. Nicholas
Longworth. His second wife, Miss
Edith Kermit, srrvives. They had
five children Theodore Jr., Archie,
Ethel (now Mrs. Richard Darby),
Kermit and Quentin. All four of Mr.
Roosevelt's sons and his son-in-law
fought against Germany. Quentin
Roosevelt lost his life in battle with

German aviators last spring, and two
of the other boys have received

wounds. One Kermit unable to

pass the stringent American exami

nation entered the British army, and

is now in service in Mesopotamia.

It is likely that if Mr. Roosevelt's
life had been prolonged, that clouds

of bitterness and disappointment
would have gathered around him in

his latter vears. He was tending to

ward a spirit of factionalism that he
did not know in his earlier days and

which would have been sadly out'of

place at this time.

There can be no doubt. However,

that he has been a great man, has

done great works, and it is certain
that no man in American public life

ever had so many and such sincere

friends. There was nothing little nor

mean about him. Entirely does he

deserve his eternal rest and a lasting

place in the memory of his country

Just because ladies and gentlemen,

Pericles, who was the greatest dandy
of "all antiquity and the man who
gave such dignity and distinction to
socialism that the time he lived is
called the golden age of Greece.

Pericles was in fact a true demo

crat, although some of his practices
would be called socialistic in these
days of wide departure of democratic

practice, from democrat precept.

Master at Athens at a time when

Athens led the world, he used his
power to develop the people, being
clear enough and broad enough in

mind to know that the state grows
with the people no faster and in no

other way.

It is the spirit alone that is worthy

to endure. This can not be doubted,
for man who has dominion over all

things lives and dies and is forgoten,

except as the ideas he expressed and
developed give him immortality.
While the few remaining examples of

that host of public works of marvel- IT.

ous combination of beauty and utility

with which Pericles filled all Greece

are crumbling away, there remains to

us and to all who come after us thatll

wonderful idea that this enlightened

tmean expressed for the good of the 2

Greeks and of all people else who will
but seize it and harness it and put it 2
to work, a3 those wise Athenians did.

Said Pericles: "The state is the
people. What is done for the state is

done for the people. The service oflc

the state is the highest service, the
most honorable service, the most ex

acting service. Therefore, every
workman who stands forth from his

craft as the best in his line, every Ut
man who shows supreme talent to do I Jfj

anything, every genius, every wizard,

every leader, should work for the

idea, he had the power to develop it.

Accordingly he searched Athens andl
all her dominions, far and wide for IsYj

men and women with bright minds

and cunning hands to enroll in the

civil service. And he found them in

such numbers and of such degree that

the time of Pericles set the high wa

ter mark of human attainment in

Apply this rule of the Pericles' sys

and we would restore the rule of the

people to its rightful position of su- X:

premacy for the state is the people

and the people alone have the right

to rule.

We might make a start, by picking

men for office who are qualified for

the particular duties of each office

We could train men for the public

service in our public institutions. No

greater work than this could be add

We are now training farmers. Why

a ten-cent bottle of castor oil, and drink
it two or three days in succession. J!e
