"No discharged service man has to

in which he misused his office. His
friends see no change in him. Some
of his friends say he was as patriotic
during the war as any; that he was
only misunderstood. This may be
true we have no right to say it isn't.

But who but himself caused him to be

tioned. questioned. Men who were pacifists, even
pro-Germans, before America went in,
had plenty of chances to prove their
loyalty, and hundreds of thousands
took them. It wasn't right in those
days for a man to keep the light of
h;s patriotism hidden under a bushel,

for every gleam of light was needed
to help dispel the darkness and doubt

in which the world was enwrapped

until the sunrise of victory arose over

Belleau Wood.
Some men hard up for argument
say that if Robert Anderson is elected,
not he but his father will be mayor of
Ocala. Any man who has brought up
a son knows that his son prefers his
own opinion and his own way to his
father's. And any man whose son has
gone across the seas and helped defeat
the Hun knows his son has brought
back with him an experience and a
knowledge that has greatly reinforced
his natural disposition. We older men
may well respect the opinions of the

boys whose bravery and sacrifice have
kept peaceful roofs over our graying
heads. Robert Anderson Jr., we hope

and believe, pays his father all respect

and filial affection. But if he is elect elected,
ed, elected, he will be mayor of Ocala, he will
form his own opinions; he will write
his own communications and make his
own speeches; and he will make our
city a good executive and try to bring

about that harmony it so badly needs.

Let us vulcanize all of your old used
tires which can possibly be saved in
tfiis way. Our vulcanizing process
positively prolongs the life of both
tires and tubes. Figure it out for
yourself and you will see what a big
saving we can create for you in your
tire account.

Prima donnas and high-strung artists
are temperamental, but it is not often
that such a trait is found in a horse,
as was the case in an incident
which occurred on one of the uptown
streets the other afternoon, says the
New York Times. The horse was at attached
tached attached to a delivery wagon. Mr. Horse
evidently thought, that he had done
enough work for the day, so without
further ceremony he lay down across
the tracks of one of the trolley lines.
A crowd soon collected, fallowed by
the usual excitement with a storming
motor-man and a call for the police. A
woman who said that she knew some something
thing something about horses, said the animal
was overcome by hard work, and she
gave Instructions to the driver as to
what he should do. After a few min minutes
utes minutes had passed a veterinary stepped
out of the crowd and took a look at
the horse. The veterinary turned to
the cop and the others and said:
"There is nothing the matter with
this horse. He Is tired and he just
made up his mind to take a rest. You
know when a horse gets tired, he is
not particular as to where he stretches
his bones. My word for It, he will be
all right in a few minutes and be on
his way."
The woman did not agree with him
and Insisted that something be done to
alleviate the animal's suffering. She
and the veterinary got into a heated
argument, when the horse without fur further
ther further ado decided that the street was
not the best place in the world to
stretch his bones on, so he got up on
all fours and shook himself. The
driver hitched him to the wagon, and
Mr. Horse started off on his labors as
If nothing had happened. One man in
the crowd said that he'd be -darned If
he ever knew until then that a horse
could think.


But to Put It Mildly, They Were Un Unfortunate

"Enlivening" Song.
While writing a book at Northamp Northampton,
ton, Northampton, Mass., and a neighbor of Profes Professor
sor Professor Whitney, Raphael Pumpelly tells
in his reminiscences. Miss Alice Whit Whitney
ney Whitney told him the following at once
humorous and pathetic story:
"They had as guests staying with
them a missionary and his wife from
the south seas. The woman was
tall and of stern aspect ; the man, her
second husband, was a small and
timid creature. One evening, in an
attempt to Introduce a little liveliness
into the solemnity, Mrs. Whitney
asked her sons, just home from col college,
lege, college, and her daughter to sing some
college songs. So gathering around
the piano, with their backs to the au audience,
dience, audience, the young people began The
King of the Cannibal Islands. As
the song progressed the missionary
lady grew more and more' erect and
severe, and when it came to the serv serving
ing serving up of roast missionary she rose
in anger, and with her black silk skirts
rustling she walked solemnly out of
the room, followed timidly by her
shrinking little husband.
"Then Mrs. Whitney burst out with :
'Oh, children, children, what have you
done? Her first husband was eaten
by cannibals !'

That Malaria Is Caused by Emana Emanations

the Correct Idea.
We have lately been taught that the
mosquito was the only disseminator of
malaria, and that we should be safe If
we got rid of mosquitoes. But Doctor
Roux, formerly chief physician of the
St. Louis hospital, Jerusalem, asserts
as the result of his own experience of
20 years and of that of many colonial
physicians that malaria often exists
where there are no mosquitoes.
At Reunion and Sene, for instanc

Why 8al Hunters Wear Black.
No mammal that Is known has eye eyesight
sight eyesight which at all compares with that
of a man. A wolf can see you under
favorable conditions a little more than
half a mile away ; a caribou at a little
more than a quarter of a mile, and a
seal commonly at about 300 yards. If
you are standing up, or 150 to 200
yards If you are lying down. You can
walk unconcernedly toward a seal un until
til until less than 400 yards away, after
which you begin a careful approach.
You crawl ahead on all fours while he
sleeps and you He flat and motionless
while he is awake. It might seem
that something could be gained by
wearing white clothing, to match the
snow, but this is. the reverse of wis wisdom,
dom, wisdom, for the seal's one enemy that he
fears is a polar bear, and the polar
bear is white. If a seal sees anything
that Is suspicious and white he takes
discretion to be .the better part of
valor and dives promptly Into his hole.
If the suspicious object Is black he as assumes
sumes assumes that it is probably another seal
that has come out of another hole to
bask in the sun. It Is therefore the
task of the hunter to simulate a seal.
Cactus Takes Long Trip.
A small cactus, the Jointed opuntla,

Stalking Seals Difficult.

way of interpreting his behavior, for

hi head as high as he conveniently
can, which is 14 or 1G inches, and make
a complete survey of the horizon. If
nothing suspicious is seen, this survey
takes about ten seconds, after which
he drops his head on the ice again and
sleeps a minute more, says a writer
