Edward Green trained at Fort Screv

boys trained together and went to
France together, among the first of
our forces, but were separated soon
after landing. Stucky, like the other
engineers, put in little time in train training,

after he reached France. He knew
pretty well what to do in his line
without any telling, and was soon
made a corporal and put in charge of
construction units, sometimes Amer
ican and sometimes men of the other
Allied nations. He was kept on the
hustle from the day he landed until
he started for home. He helped build
roads under fire, and fought to keep
the enemy from capturing the said
roads. He was all along the fight fighting

Argonne and was on the first line

Germans ever managed to miss him

of being gassed a couple of times he

The board of control is asking for

Then the citrus canker bill, the live

FIRST MARKET DAY
m EflMtAGIDG

Though Weather Was a Drawback
Sentiment was for More
Such Sales
While the weather proved to be a
drawback, the crowd which attended
the Market Day auction of the Board
of Trade, held this morning under the
trees near the city hall, was a good
cne and the auction proved encourag
ing enough in its results to warrant
the holding of more market days in
the future. At the end of this morn
ings sale, the sentiment was for
more such sales.
Among the chattels sold this morn
ing by Mr. Howard Curry, assistant
industrial agent of the Seaboard Air
Line, who acted as auctioneer, were:
plows, mules, a horse, cultivators, two
buggies, a wagon, harness, a saddle
and a coal grate. Some of the sales
were real bargains.
The owner of each article offered
for sale was allowed one bid. This
gave the owner a chance to bid his
chattel in if he was not satisfied with
the bids made. Many farmers came
in for the sale who did not bring any
chattels. Some said that they wanted
to see how the sale was going to be
conducted. Some of the sales produc
ed much fun and laughter.

PORK INSPECTION WILL
SOON TAKE PLACE
In accordance with the request from
the agricultural committeemen, at
their last meeting in Ocala April 19,
a letter was sent to J. A. Atkinson,
live stock supervisor, U. S. D. A.,
stationed at Jacksonville, asking if he
was vested with power to inspect hog
shipments at the cooling and packing
plants to make fair and impartial ad
justments on "hard" and "soft" hogs.
County Agent Blackburn has received
a letter irom Mr. Atkinson stating
that he was not at present supposed
to inspect hogs, officially, but that he
had done so for the farming interests
of the state when -he had been called
on. lie iurther stated that he had
recommended to the bureau at Wash Washington
ington Washington that the work of classifying
hogs in the cooler be undertaken, as
he believed it would remove grounds
for dissatisfaction and incidentally
the proper classification would tend
to encourage production.
Mr. Atkinson stated that at the
Jacksonville market there are three
classes of hogs received, namely: soft,
hard, oily, but the latter two being
placed in one classification and they
bring the producer or consignor two
cents per pound less than if they were
actually hard. Some of the so-called
"soft" hogs come perilously near be being
ing being "hard," and so it is underttood
that a feeder who produces pork that
is just near the border line feels very
much dissatisfied when he receives
"soft" prices.
It was stated in the letter that in instructions

bureau within a short time and as
soon as received would be made pub public.

glad to inspect any shipments from
producers or consignors of the county
if he be notified in time, provided the
time did not interfere with his regular
work.
The establishment of an impartial
adjuster for the determining of
"hard" and "soft" hogs will do much
for the stock raisers of the state.
Ihis has been needed for some time
merely to satisfy the consignor as
well as the packer. Any further in information

without delay.

we have been associated during the
past school year, 1918-1919.
- We have found in Mr. Cassels a
man of high ideals and a thorough and
progressive educator. He is always
just and generous toward his faculty
and kind but firm in his discipline of
the school.
He maintains a degree of morale
unusual among so large a student
body, by his personal example and in
fluence, his precepts and his high
standards for young men and women,
boys and girls.
The past session has been one of
progress and profit for the students,
with plenty of hard work but no fric

Proving His

By OTOilA FRANCES PFECTER

(CopTrifht. 1919. by Western Xtwiptper Union.)
When Ernest Druse came back from
the war, bearing the scars of several
wounds, a record for exceptional
' bravery and two honor decorations, the
girls of Rockton went fairly wild over
him. He was hero. Idol, and petted
and feted favorite, while stay-at-homes
became back numbers, for the time at
least.
"He makes me tired I" observed Val
Newcomb to a coterie of friends.
"He's a monopolizer so far as the
company and attentions of the ladles
are concerned; that Is sure," remark
ed one of the group.
"Valor, courage and all that sort of
stuff I You'd think he had won the

"Oh, dear 1" suddenly exclaimed Es-

sprung from behind a tree. In a

the Jeweled ornament.

to marry Wade Burton next month."
The tiger In the man sprang to the
surface In a flash. He was on his

"Let him beware. If he crosses my

morose and captious and kept aflame
his mad emotions with the constant
use of liquor.
: Gradually his confreres became
aware of the wretchedness that was
wearing down their leader. Muttetings
against Wade Burton, who was a
lawyer, who had prosecuted several
of the band, intensified the insane
jealousy of Wyckoff. There came a
climax. One evening with six chosen
men he rode over to Macon, stationed
his men in ambush near the Virdin
home and stole towards It a few min minutes
utes minutes later. An agreed on eignal, a
low, peculiar whistle, reached the men
In covert. It advised them that'Wade
Burton was on the premises and to
be ready to greet him when he came
down the woodland path.
Wyckoff had made out Burton and
Nellie In the garden of the little Vir Virdin

"You are sure Althea is safe. Yon

He must feel grateful to you for
all that you have done in behalf of his
sister," said Nellie. "What was that I"
It was a groan, and it issued from
the lips of Hal Wyckoff as he stag stag-geied

of the moment stunned him. This

streaked appearance, this simple mixture
was applied with wonderful effect.

gredients, ingredients, which can be depended upon to
restore natural color and beauty to the
hair.
A well-known downtown druggist says

ereniythat nobody can tell it baa been
applied. You simply dampen a sponge
or soft brush with it and draw this
through your hair, taking one itrand at
a time. By morning the gray hair dis disappears,
appears, disappears, and after another application ct
two, it becomes beautifully dark and
glossy.
