Number of Casualties Caused by
Saturday Night's Earthquake
May Never be Known
(Associated Press)
Mexico City, Jan. 7. Hundreds and
possibly thousands of lives were lost
in the earthquake which shook Vera
Cruz Saturday night. The damage is
so widespread and so wild are some
of the sections, it is probable the
number of casualties will never be
known. Vera Cruz and Jalapa dis dispatches
patches dispatches declare one thousand persons
were killed at Couztlan alone. Thirty
lives were lost at Teocelo.
The appearance on our streets this
morning of a stalwart young man in
army uniform, and with the insignia
of a captain on his shoulders, drew
attention, which was added to when
it was learned that the young officer
was a Marion boy Francis G. Bishop,
of Ocala and Reddick.
Captain Bishop was well known to
many of our people when he was a
boy, a plumber in Yonge's shop. Nine
years ago he entered the army and
ha?, had a strenuous and honorable
career, winning the silver bars on his
shoulders by sheer merit. He served
three years in the Filippines, and six sixteen
teen sixteen months in Siberia, where he went
with the 31st Infantry. He returned
to America in October, and is now
with the 35th Infantry, stationed at
Tacoma. This is his first visit home
in five years, and he says old Marion
looks good to him. He is being warm warmly

from the laundry Monday noon, one
of our local 'newspaper men was seen
walking in that direction at a good
two-mile an hour gait, an increase of
50 per cent, on his normal speed. On
being asked why his unusual alacrity,
he replied that his other shirt was in
the laundry, which building he feared
was in danger.
We have received from the manage management

Fair, in Orlando, Feb. 10 to 13, one
beautifully printed complimentary

full of money, enough to pay for our
dinner and the side-shows, will con consent

how to carry out a joke.
Nearly every member of the Ocala
lodge of the K. of P. is healthy, and
its our opinion that the reason there therefor
for therefor is that once a week they thorough thoroughly
ly thoroughly disinfect themselves with tobacco
smoke. As soon as the doors are
closed on a lodge meeting, nearly eve
ry member lights up, and soon each
other's faces are dimly seen thru a
genial haze. Sometimes the smoke is
so thick that if there were any mer mercenary
cenary mercenary men among the knights they
would cut it into chunks and carry it
to neddle as plug tobacco. A
few of the members do not smoke, but
thev wrap themselves in the fragrant:

fog and seem to enjoy it as much as

the smokers. In an hour all the men mental

a man are killed and he goes forth en enlivened,
livened, enlivened, refreshed and at peace with

the world. We understand that some
ladies who have the good luck to be
wedded to knights make a kick at the
aroma that surrounds and permeates
their spouses, but they don't know
when they are well off. One old
knight who lives all by his lone says
that when he has been to a lodge
meeting and hits the hay on his re return

the floor under his bed, like raindrops
on the roof, as the bugs stampede in
dismay. Whenever we attend we look
around the castle hall at the placid
features of our brethren, shining like
so many little moons thru wisps of
cloud, and we regret that the walls
can't be taken off so the whole world
might look in and see one of the
finest pictures of fraternal content
ment ever drawn.
Commenting on the Star's sugges suggestion,
tion, suggestion, the other day, that a county
road engineer be employed and that
district road overseers be done away
with, two of the county commissioners j
iniormed us that while the suggestion
was a good one it was hampered by
the law, which requires a road over overseer
seer overseer for each commissioner's district,
said overseer to be paid not more than
$3 a day.
Any business man can see what a
ridiculous law that is for today. It
might have been well enough for
twenty years ago, but now it is a clog
and a stumbling block. Certainly, the
next legislature should repeal it; that
is, if the next legislature can be pre prevailed
vailed prevailed on to do anything useful.
This, however, need not prevent the
employment of a county road engi engineer,
neer, engineer, nor the concentration of the
road work on one or two places the
most in need of work, at a time. While
the engineer concentrated his efforts
in one district, the overseers in the
other districts could watch the roads
and report where repairs were most
needed. This supervision, at present
prices, would not be overpaid at $3 a
The commissioners say they could
do very well at repairing roads if
they could obtain the labor. The state
has taken all but a few of the con convicts
victs convicts and free labor is as scarce as
hen's teeth. What free labor there
is does not want to go far from home.
One commissioner says he can obtain
men in his district, but they, are not
willing to go into another.
Some of our friends have blamed us
for not denouncing the present board
of. commissioners. The more we see
of the difficulties that beset the board
in its every attempt at improvement,
the more we feel like sympathizing
with it.
The board of county commissioners
has been informed by the state road
department that the county must fish,
cut bait or get out of the boat. In
other words, it must find the means
to co-operate with the state in build building

aid will be withdrawn and the county
left a broken link in the highway

an effort to create a road district out

According to Carl W. Ackerman,
Mr. Wilson's delay is responsible for
the defeat of the friends of America
and the Allies in Siberia, and the
other fact that Japan is now virtually
in control of Siberia as far west as
Lake Baikal. As far as the American
public is concerned, Mr. Wilson would
have an intricate piece of work to de decide
cide decide just what it wants him to do in
regard to Eastern Asia. Some blame
him for ever allowing American
troops in Asia at all, and some want
him to provoke a fight with Japan. No
party lines are drawn in this blame.
The Star thinks America should let
all Eastern Asia alone, except the
Philippines, and withdraw from them

as soon as it decently can. We have

about as much business interfering

with Japan in that part of the world j
as Japan would have objecting to j
America holding Alaska. Any inter inter-feernce

The News has seen, right at home
here, two efforts to convict a sheriff
and a deputy sheriff, who had the
misfortune to kill men while in the
discharge of their duties. The efforts
failed in both instances. The men
vere not in either of the cases killed

attempting to prevent the officers
from enforcing the law. If a man is
guilty of a minor offense, he would
better peacefully submit to arrest and
stand trial; if he is not guilty, he can
ptove his innocence.
If the officers of the law permit
suspected offenders to run over them,
to push them off automobiles, to laugh
at them for their discomfiture, there
will be no enforcement of law.
Virginia, in trying an officer a third

law, is reflecting little credit on a
great state.

I lits Haroun-Alraschid-Like Around
the State of Florida
(Tampa Times)
"I am looking after the business of
the state." is the reply made by Gov.
Sidney J. Catts to a representative of
the Times today when queried rela relative
tive relative to the nature of his visit to Tam
pa and South Florida at this time and
but for a few words relative to a sim sim-ilai
ilai sim-ilai trip made to Escambia county re recently,
cently, recently, the governor left at noon to today
day today without making known what par
ticular business of the state he is!
looking after.
The state executive stated that he
spent three days in Escambia county
determining for himself whether offic officers
ers officers of the county were doing their
duty, and that in a short time after
his visit there the sheriff and prose
cuting attorney of the county were
dismissed from office. "It's a wise
thing for the governor of the state to
et out among the people and see for
himself and then he will not have to i
depend on reports reaching Tallahas-!
ree," commented the governor.
Whether the governor has any one
or set of officers under surveillance in
Hillsborough or any other county in
South Florida is not known, but he
visited the phosphate section before
reaching Tampa yesterday noon and
he stated that he has other places to
visit before returning to Tallahassee
Thursday night or Friday morning.
He said, however, it would not be
good business for him to announce in
advance what particular counties and
cities he contemplates visiting before
returning to the capital. There was
no intimation by the governor that
this trip here has revealed official
negligence on the part of any Hills Hillsborough
borough Hillsborough official.
Governor Catts arrived about noon
yesterday and with Probation Officer
E. P. Martin dined with County Judge
John C. White. They attended the
lecture by Mrs. Armour at the First
Baptist church last night. While
cranking Judge White's car yesterday
Mr. Martin broke a finger and badly
cruised two oCher fingers.
While admitting that he is leaving
no stone unturned toward furthering
his candidacy for the United States
Senate, the governor said he would not
begin intensive campaigning until the
fifteenth of the month. "I have
bought a Ford car and employed a
chauffeur and on the fifteenth expect
to start at Jerusalem (Tallahassee)
and begin a speaking campaign that
will carry me all through the state.
My plan now is to deliver not less
than four addresses each day."
Over Several Counties
Eight counties in Wrest Florida have
aiready been fairly well covered by
the governor and he declares he will
receive a larger majority in these
counties than when he made the race
for governor four years ago. Refer Referring
ring Referring to his candidacy in Hillsborough
county he expressed the belief that
he will receive more votes here than
in the gubernatorial race. He said Pat
Murphy, the genial songster and poet
of Tallahassee and Jacksonville fame,
had this to say recently, "Old Catts
beat the Catholics four years ago be because
cause because they believed in Jesus Christ,
and now he's going .to beat Senator
Fletcher because he does not believe
in Jesus Christ."
The governor is wearing a ring he
prizes very highly. It was presented
to him by the inmates of the state
prison farm at Raiford and cost $50,
the prisoners making donations of
from one penny up. The setting is
amethyst, and has a Masonic emblem
engraved on it.
Speaking of his record at Tallahas Tallahassee,
see, Tallahassee, the governor said the state insti institutions
tutions institutions were never in better condition
than today, and that while few offic officers
ers officers of the state do not fully realize
their responsibility, he believes the
official business of the state state
and county has never been in better
shape than it is at the present time.
The governor expressed much elation
over the prosperity he found in Tampa
in the way of new buildings going up
and the number oi winter visitors

Window From Fashionable Haberdash Haberdasher's
er's Haberdasher's Store, Installed in Fashionable
Residence, Stilt Carried Ad.

An amusing incident Is related In the
Scientific American to prove that plate
glass fades under exposure to sunlight.
The glass originally Is slightly green,
and after some years of use becomes
pure white. The Incident Is briefly as
follows :
In making some changes In the front
of a haberdasher's store, a five-foot
piece of plate glass was removed and
taken away by the glazier. In course
of time this sheet was installed in the
front window of a new residence. The
family had scarcely moved in when
they began to receive telephone mes messages
sages messages suggesting that the neighbor neighborhood
hood neighborhood was scarcely appropriate for a
sldrt factory. They were mystified
until they discovered that when the
sunlight struck their window at a cer certain
tain certain angle the words, "John Doe
Shirts Made to Order," shone out upon
the glass.
The explanation was that when the
glass formed the haberdasher's window
it had home these words in white en enamelled
amelled enamelled letters, and the letters had
protected the underlying glass from
the rays of the sun, consequently it
had not faded as the rest of the glasa
had done.

YOUR success has been duetoprop duetoprop-erly
erly duetoprop-erly applied "know-how" and
that's just what good advertising is.
Before you could succeed in life, you had to be
doing something or making something that was
of service to other people.
For advertising to be successful in a big, broad
way it must be devoted to products which are of
material benefit to mankind.
If anything is good enough to help folks to be
happier and healthier it is so good that as much
of it should be made as can be produced eco economically
nomically economically and honestly.
And the article ought to be offered to the public
in such manner and by such means as will give
assurance that it may be bought on the basis of
giving full "value received."
It is in making possible the distribution and sale
of useful goods without waste of effort, money

field for goods that render real service.
In proportion as the advertising is well and
properly done it will increase the scope of use usefulness
fulness usefulness of the products offered without adding
to the prices at which they are sold.
In fact, the legitimate function of advertising
is to so build up business that the overhead costs
may be distributed over such greater volume as
ultimately to lower selling prices while main maintaining
taining maintaining the fair profits of makers and dealers.
The "know-how" which is back of all good
advertising has been acquired by experience and
study. Generally it has cost the men who
possess it large sums of money and almost always
it is the result of years of work on their part.
That others may be saved the experiment and
expense that have taught them, some of the men
who have learned what is good advertising Have
formed organizations which apply the "know "know-how"

These are known as advertising agencies and
they are so financed that they may be consulted

firm desiring to extend its business or interested
in reducing its selling costs. Most successful
advertising now is handled by these agencies.
