LIVES IN MINEOLA
A party of Gainesville people were
going to Tampa last Sunday and ran
out of gasoline in a little town named
Mineola, in the southern part of the
state. Upon finding out the reason
"Henry" refused to move any further,
they began to look around for a filling
station. About 100 yards from where
the car stopped they noticed a large
sign, letters about two feet long on
it. which said: "Gasoline." What luck,
thought the motorists. They also no noticed
ticed noticed a family was living on the
ground floor of the building on which
the sign was located.
It was about 9 o'clock, and the
driver of the car walked up to the
side of the building and called in the
customary manner, "Hello." A man
shoved his head in the window and
asked, "What do you want?" The
motorist replied: "I would like to get
a little- gas, please." The merchant
replied, "I don't sell gasoline on Sun Sunday."

do you expetc a tourist to do when he
runs out of gas here on Sunday?"
The merchant replied, "What does he
do in a big city? The garages there
do not stay open on Sunday.'' The
motorist replied: "They do in all the
big cities I have been in." The mer
chant then said: "They don't in any

his car he noticed a hotel across the
street and went over to make further
inquiries about getting the necessary
gas. The proprietor of the hotel told
him he had only about two gallons in
his car, but he was going to the next
town right away to get more, and
would gladly bring the stranded
motorist what he wanted. There were
two-cars in the party, though, and an
investigation revealed the fact that
the second car had about a gallon in
it. So it was divided and the party
went to the next little town about
three miles out of the way to get the
gasoline. The motor party is now

VICTORY SAVE IT!
Of all the things we were told to
save during the war, from money
down to peach pits, ont one approach approached
ed approached in importance the thing we must
save now. That thing is victory. We
won it, but will we keep it?
That may seem a foolish question,
yet as surely as we do not hold before
us the ideals for which we fought and
the ends towards which we wrought,
the fruits of victory will slip from
our hands and the triumph bought at
the cost of so much blood and sorrow
will become but a page, albeit a glor glorious
ious glorious one, in history.
In the last analysis, the object of
the war was to make the world a bet better,
ter, better, cdleaner, safer place in which to
live than Germany threatened to
make it. But winning the war by no
means accomplished that purpose.
Rather did it merely clear the way
for its accomplishment. Had Ger Germany
many Germany won, it is frequently -said that
civilization would have been set back
a hundred years. But- that Germany
lost does not mean civilization has
been advanced a hundred years; it
merely means that it is now possible
for us to work for its advancement
without devoting all our resources to
repelling the savage that barred the
Are we then to rest on our laurels,
to fel that because we have beat out
the blaze, it is not necessary to repair
the ravages or to build up the house
against future fires? Rather let us
carry on the work which our heroic
dead made possible for us to do, and
in such .humanitarian causes as that
of the American Red Cross in its plans
for the betterment of the health and
the enlightenment of mankind, prove

Before daylight, Monday morning,
Nov. 11, 1918, our little city was
awakened from slumber by the clang
of bells and the scream of steam
whistles. None turned over for a
second nap, for all knew the armistice
had been signed. Thousands of wom women
en women and men who for eighteen months
had been going around with faces
wreather in smiles or sternly set for
the grim task they expected yet to
last for years, whose boys and boy
friends were either on the battle line
or pushing toward it, felt a mighty
load lifted, and hard it was for them
to stay on the ground. We all know
what followed how the town boiled
out and the country boiled in and both
boiled over and late it was that night
when people began to remember they
had to have some sleep.
Tuesday, November 11, 1919, a lit

asks the service men and their friends
and who are not their friends? to
come to the city, so we may all join
the greater part of the people of our
nation in celebrating Victory Day. It
will be the first, we hope, of many
such days, for the people should keep
- in mind and heart forever the day
when the Prussian giant sank to his
knees and acknowledged that the
young JJavid from Deyona tne At-

there never was an army with so
many beardless heroes in it but they

tea shops in poorer districts ef the

the vast numbers of people who could
Immediately upon organizing, the
student published their demands, four
in number: (1) that the militarists,
who as a party were pro-Japanese and
practically controlled the Government
at Peking, be put out of office; (2) that
Shantung be returned to China ; (3)
that the twenty-one demands m::de by
Japan in 1915 be cancelled; (4) that
there be freedom of speech and of the
press. They also Insisted that the
Chinese constitution be finished.
