For years property owners in this
vicinity have been trying to have the
street put through from Sanchez to
Watula, a-distance of three blocks, in
order to drain the adjoining property.
Suits in condemnation proceedings
were brought some three years ago in
the circuit court and a right: of way
through all the property east of ..Wa

was obtained, some of the property
owners giving a strip of land for
the street, this being the case with the,
school, board trustees. The verdict in
the Lyles caseawardedby the jury, j
amounting to $1000, was deemed too
high a' valuation by the city, and the
council refused to pay it. The casu

term of office a survey of the street
was made and an item of $1080 was

that the best method of draining the
street was to open it through the three

then install culverts where necessary.

Latin did not contribute materially to
that end in the great ; majority of
cases, he argued that those studies
should not be given place to the-exclusion

were invested with 'all the dignity and

then they are aiming to meet the pop-

especially such of them as are de dependent

their support.
But how about the high schools, the
people's colleges; supposed to be the
crowning' sheaf of ; our educational
system; Upon them we lavish a large
proportion of the money raised by
taxation of the people for educational
purposes. Their curricula embraces
many of the subjects "that properly be
long to the colleges. In fact they are
loaded 1 down with all the latest edu educational
cational educational fads and isms Jor which we
must have expensive teachers and ap apparatus;

pupils a mere smattering oi many

ness. business. PUT THE CONVICTS
As will be seen by the resolutions
adopted by the board of county com commissioners,
missioners, commissioners, and published elsewhere,
the commissioners have started a
movement to have the convict lease
system entirely abolished ; and the
convicts put to work on the public
roads. -
The Star is heartily in favor of the
movement from both economic and
humanitarian reasons. Regarding the
former, we are certain that it is to the
interest of the taxpayers to put the
convicts on the roads. A number of
years ago all the state convicts ex
cept the aged and crippled were leas
ee fhe convict lease system had
then been reduced toas near a science
as possible. It had been put in such
shape that it was as much to the in
terest of the, lessee to treat convicts
well as it was to the interest of a
farmer to care for his blooded stock.
However, there were some abuses,
and public sentiment demanded that
the system be abolished, and convicts
put to work either on the state farm
or the roads. It was supposed that
this had been done, but the law has
been evaded or nullified, and now or
the 1400 Florida convicts a majority
are at work for private parties.
Some of our state officials and citi
zens are afraid that it will seriously
cripple, the public finances to take
these convicts away from the lessees
and put them to work on the roads.
. The best answer to this is that
Marion county is now paying out
oyer $50,000 a year to keep up its
roads. If the county had its pro
rata of convicts, this amount could
be greatly reduced. It would give the
county the constant use of between
thirty and forty able-bodied men, and
what these could do under skilled
direction would vastly improve our
public highways. It is only fair to
suppose that the same could be said
of every county in the state, and the
amount saved to them, would greatly
exceed what is now paid into the
treasury for convict hire.
Besides, we need the road's out of
all proportion to the money received.
The second reason is that there is
cause to believe convicts will be bet better
ter better treated by the state than by les
sees. The cost of a convict is much
greater now than it was ten years
ago, and the temptation to overwork
and underfeed him is greater. We
hear some rather tough stories about;
the treatment of convicts, and they
come firsthand, too.
Let the statd assume the entire use
of its cemvicts, either on its farm, or
its roads, "see that they do good work
and are well treated, and both the
taxpayers arid the convicts will be bet
ter off. .-

In one bend of the swift-flowing,
snakelike river Merrlmac. could be
found a little town named after the
river. The town was insignificant
enough in name, and would have been
more so had not nature taken a hand
In the matter. Her swaying, sweeping
willows, radiant fields of wheat and
corn, gentle, nodding bluebells; crim crimson
son crimson walls of .Virginia marguerites and
brown-eyed susans "were enough to In Inspire,

going this way. In such a place one
would expect to find rural people, and
uch they were. These quiet, loving,
country folk were not to be left. to
their own devices and theory long,
once John Berry caught sight of the
little Ivy-grown cottage In the yalley
overlooking the river.
"Peace's throne was usxlrped.,, In Indignant
dignant Indignant farmers sought refuge In their
little town hall many an evening,-discussing
John and his, or what .they
thought preposterous Idea of potato
growing. Yet they had to put ,np
with It.
It was a balmy midsummer twilight
when from across the road could be
seen the dim outline of someone mer merrily
rily merrily whistling, evidently watching one
of the farmers transplant something.
John's two eyes grew wistful when he
heard someone say :
"Don't anyone around here grow po potatoes?
tatoes? potatoes? I should think they would

Tgrow good."

I'Bah, potatoes I" was the sarcattlc
reply. A whispered conversation en ensued,
sued, ensued, and then a mop of dark hair
parted the raspberry bush 'and with withdrew

Many an evening Jolm saw the
same figure peering, rather watching
the growth of his potatoes. So often
did. he see, her that he "named her
his "Potato Girl." He only saw her
In the evening, it is true, but he man managed
aged managed to catch her quite accidentally,
yet not without purpose, one evening;
and from then on the acquaintance
grew. She reminded John of someone
he had once known, but he dared not
ask her lest his dream be upset.
, Summer waned, autumn likewise.
Ills potatoes had yielded a fairly good
crop for a first year. Nevertheless
the farmers were Justas Indignant as
ever. Winter followed a long, hard
winter. Spring came at last. John
was undecided as to whether he should
grow potatoes this year or not. ,HIs
thoughts wandered back to his "Po "Potato
tato "Potato Girl" until he finally decided he
would raise them, for her sake.
Tlie potatoes flourished figaln. and
the "Potato Girl" reappeared. One
evening he boldly, exclaimed:
"It is Just a ypar ago tonight that
I first saw you. Won't you tell me
your, name?
With -'a toss of her head and a leap
across the road, she laughingly re replied:

"Oh yes, the do grow elsewhere,"
came the prompt reply. One looked at
the other, hardly knowing what to say,
when John relieved the silence, boldly
"If this was leap year I might think
It over, but as It Isn't, Is It true po

tatoes grow down deep In your heart,
too?" She was a good runner, and
consequently John had to chase her
around the well several times before
he captured her for her answer.
The wedding day was set for the
latter part of August, yet John wns
not so happy as he would have been
If he had lnown her right name. He
had to comfort himself, however, with
the promise to know 4t the day of
the wedding. A week before the ap appointed

"Edith, how conld you?" A long
story followed In which Edith told
how her uncle had praised him for his
pluck, and told her that he was the
kind of a man to have. These. city
boys, said he, are no earthly use.
"John, It Is all true," sh ended- "I
