GIVING SOME SPACE
TO LOU GREEN
Dear Lou: If you had lived in the
of Mother Goose, she surely
would have had you in her immortal
book, for that good old gal had her
eye out for freaks. She would have
written about you somewhat thusly:
There was an old lawyer by the name
of Lou Green
With bats in his belfry and cracks in
He was the darndest old crank that
ever was seen.
I am glad you have begun writing
for the paper, Lou; the linotype ope operator
rator operator says that while there is no sense
in what you write you turn out beau beautiful
tiful beautiful copy, and setting up what you
say is almost as restful as putting in
a slide to make rules or dashes and
letting the machine run itself while
he takes a smoke. You sure do write
beautiful copy, Lou. I imagine Pres President
ident President Wilson turns out about the
same, so far as the typewriting is
concerned. I am also glad to have
something from your pen type typewriter,
writer, typewriter, I mean; because when people
finish reading your stuff it doesn't
make them feel so bad to read mine.
The remarks you make about the
prohibition campaign, Lou. are elo eloquent,
quent, eloquent, but like the works of the
watch, they have nothing to do with
the case. You will cause the ungodly
to scoff. "What?" they will say, "has
this high muckymuck in the M. E.
church bribed that disreputable news newspaper?
paper? newspaper? What's the use of our trying
to be good when the Lord can see
such thipgs and not rain down fire
and brimstone." And then will ensue
a carnival of wickedness that will
make Gomorrah look like a New Eng England
land England village of 1630 A. D.
I am never surprised at anything
you do, Lou, so your intimation that
I desire more consideration for a ne negro
gro negro than for a white man does not
phaze me. I have never spoken up
strongly against anything I, believed
to be wrong without having some per person
son person impute to me a wrong motive. I
am used to it; I instinctively know
when to expect it; I know that when whenever
ever whenever I depart from the broad and
pleasant policy of assuming that
"Whatever is, is right," I will bring
a flock of chasers after my goat; but
the old goat is with me and right
I have never advertised that I was
modest, Lou; neither have I claimed
any other virtue. I
admit that you
I nmhihitionist I
have been a faithful prohibitionist
and regular with your checks, which
have done more for the cause than
anything else that you have inscribed.
Speaking of prohibition, Lou, re reminds
minds reminds me that I am thirsty and must
go to Charlie Hunter's and imbibe one
of those robust cups of coffee that
keep even a feeble brain working two
more hours on top of twelve. I am a
little bit sad, Lou; I can't help think thinking
ing thinking that if you were here with me at
this witching hour of midnight, and
you had a bottle of Peruna and I a
flask of Maryland Club, we could dis discuss
cuss discuss genially on old times, each sip sipping
ping sipping meanwhile his favorite brew.
They tell me Peruna isn't what it
used to be, Lou; but I always pre preferred
ferred preferred my redeye straight anyhow. I
suppose we would have such a good
time that this article would not be
written, but that would be no loss to
Those remarks, however, to the ef effect
fect effect that your checks and others gave
point to the Star's successful attack
on booze show that you have not
abolished from yourself the melan melancholy
choly melancholy habit of measuring other peo people's
ple's people's corn in your half bushel. Why
didn't that bright idea occur to you
some four and a third years ago when
the Star was handing shortarm jolts
to the Demon Rum. The fact is, dear
Lou, you and your brother prohibs,
also the gentlemen on the other
side wasted your good kale. You
would get clippings from the Union
Signal and the Sunday School Times,
and quotations from Frances Willard
and John B. Gough and bring them to
the Star and Banner and have them
printed. They pleased the already
good but they fell as harmless as
snowflakes on the Castle of Giant De
spair. They changed no votes, and
the liquor crowd had the most votes.
And the liquor crowd pursued the
same tactics. They had printed
lot of guff that gratihed their pre
judices, but altered no one's opinion.
They printed more than the drys, be
cause they had a lot more money. But
they never got even a fingerhold on
the Star's editorial page whenever it
referred to the subject, it favored pro prohibition.
hibition. prohibition. The Star didn't favor the
wet or dry elections they always
caused bitter feelings, it stayed neu neutral
tral neutral because it knew the drys couldn't
win, and it always lost friends on
both sides. But in 1915 the Star
thought the drys had a chance to win,
and went in to help them win. Eve Eve-body
body Eve-body knows it followed different tac tactics
tics tactics from any ever used before that
it didn't do any longrange shooting
but fired thru open sights at the men
right at home. The drys have always
credited the Star with the victory, and
the wets have always blamed it for
it. The drys had some money, not
very much, and some of which thsy
gave to the Star, but it wasn't half
as much as it lost in straight business
during the campaign and the month
or two after, nor half as much as the
wets had paid it for advertising dur during
ing during any preceding campaign. The
money made no difference; the Star
had decided its course anyhow.
All these things are well known to
many, and I should not dilate 'on them
if that dear Lou had not dug them up
from the cemetery of the past what
for I know not.
As for that little ticket business,
you know, Lou, that you could not
have carried it out without the intel intelligent
ligent intelligent co-operation of Commissioner
Cam and the Star, and you know they
were as guilty as you boast to be, for
did not Johnny Moore threaten to put

me impress on your mind and that of
other folks, that I take the same po position
sition position in regard to him as that taken
by Ben Hill, Alexander Stephens,
John B. Gordon, Henry Grady, Joel
Chandler Harris, Kit Warren, and
many other old fashioned southern
men, who knew the negro well and
held his confidence.
It was one of these great men I
don't remember which, but they were
all faithful to the South, and helped

"Negroes were with me when I was
born, they rocked my cradle and
taught me to walk; they have been
faithful to me all my life, and when
I am laid away I will have no more
sincere mourners than my colored
And his life, which ended years ago
proved the truth of what he said.
I have observed the negro's behav behavior
ior behavior for fifty years and read all the
history ever written about him. I
know that he belongs to an inferior
race, and I don't believe he should
hold, office over the white man, nor
mingle in social equality with white
people. But I believe white men
should help him whenever he tries to
improve himself, and always give him
justice. The white man can't afford
to be unjust injustice does him more
harm than it does to the negro.
My father owned slaves before the
war when the war set tnem iree xney
remained on the old home place, crop

their little cabins by doing the chores
around the "big house" and bringing

They stayed with us and were happy
and well cared for until the family
moved away. In all my life. I have
never had any trouble with a negro.
Some few have given me "sassy" talk,
and some fewer have. stolen from me,
but nothing to make a fuss about. I
don't want the negro exalted above
the white man, but I think it is bad
policy, if nothing else, to treat him

that the poet, tho' I can't remember

the power of music to uplift and edify.
The principal feature of the after afternoon's
noon's afternoon's program was an address by
Dr. Edward Conradi, president of the
Florida State College for Women. Dr.
Conradi gave an inspiring discourse,
the theme of which was Americaniza-v

ward toward eradicating this problem in our
foreign-born citizens is teaching them
our language so that they can under
stand our institutions. The public 1 4:05 pm
school, he said, must be the builder of
our citizenship, and in this connection
spoke of the necessity of the best
there is in the way of leaders for our
schools, and deplored the lack of
teachers, which state of affairs he as asserted,
serted, asserted, is becoming alarming all over
the country. Dr. Conradi. is firm in
the conviction that children should be
given the very best there is in the
matter of leadership, and said that
the people we put in charge of our
children should be on the same foot footing
ing footing as anybody in the community.
Dr. Conradi spoke in a very beau beautiful
tiful beautiful manner of the influence felt in
thousands of homes in Florida from
the leadership of Dr. W. F. Yocum,
who for over thirty years had been
connected with state institutions of
learning. And also spoke of the un unselfish
selfish unselfish and untiring efforts of Mr. E.
L. Wartmann of Citra, a member of
the board of control. Both of these
gentlemen were in the audience and
upon invitation, spoke a few words in
appreciation of the tribute paid them.

Editorial, "A Fashion of Today Today-Were
Were Today-Were Brutus here tonight to ad
dress a well, let's say, a ladies' po-:
litical meeting, or convention he j
could not begin with his well-kriown,
"Friends, Belleviewites, countrywom
en, lend me your ears," for the simple
reason he wouldn't know, to look over
his audience, whether some of his
hearers had any ears or not, for r.ow-
u r u; v.i nlvL it-oaf
where their ears are supposed to be a j
something that could easily be taken I
for anything from a mouse-trap to a
bushel basket, very cleverly covered
up with hair mostly false.
As Postum says, "There's a rea reason,"
son," reason," and we believe we have suc successfully
cessfully successfully solved the reason.
While enjoying a quiet smoke by
our office window the other day, and
incidentally watching the passers by,
we became very jnuch interested in
the fashion which has caused us to
pen this editorial.
Being passably well acquainted
with the young ladies and girls of our
town, aided us greatly in solving the
source of this prevailing fashion. But
as our readers are perhaps better ac acquainted
quainted acquainted with our subjects, it would
not be policy to use their names in
connection with this article, hence we
kindly withhold too personal a men mention,
tion, mention, leaving the young ladies in ques question
tion question to recognize themselves from a
perusal of our writing.
Let's see! Here comes a girl, yet in
her 'teens, who really might have been
passably good looking. She is dressed
in the latest style from the sole of
her shoes to the top of her ears as
each of the latter have a bushel bas basket
ket basket inverted over them, and the young
man walking by her side is wonder wondering
ing wondering wha,t on earth she has under those
baskets. He doesn't know, but we
do. The young lady's mirror inform informed
ed informed her that she had large ears, and
she is really ashamed of their pre pre-ponderness,
ponderness, pre-ponderness, so skilfully keeps them
Uh-huh. Who is this coming? Oh,
yes but then we promised to call no
names. However, she is really a very
sweet little girl, but not very fond of
work, and it is an awful task to keep
her ears clean so she secured two
good-sized wire mouse traps, winds a
few wisps of hair around them, sticks
a few invisible hair pins, and, lo, the
trick is turned. No more worry for
fear folks will see a goodly share of
mother earth behind those ears of
Ah! Here comes a bevy of school
children, and two girls with the latest
fashion in hair dressing are among
them. The little miss on this side
doesn't like to be told to wash dishes,
or other little household duties, so she
merely rolls a wad of hair up over
each ear and she has a' fairly good
preventative to hearing. Mother
may call, but she doesn't hear.
The little maid on the other side is
quite demure, and her ears are pret
ty small really too small to be seen in
public far too small to be attached
to such a pretty face, so she enhances
her beauty by having a puff on each
side of her head instead of the little
ears God so kindly gave to her.
We see no earthly reason for the
young lady just behind them to cover
her ears. She is to use a little
slang a real "good looker." But on
each side of her face is a fluffy roll
of hair that giver her quite a recem recem-blance
blance recem-blance to the wise old fellow that sits
in a tree and says "Who-Who." Only
his puffs are nature's handiwork,
while she gets hers by what some one
is pleased to call "art." But "there's
a reason" and reasons like mur murder,
der, murder, "will out." A little mole on one
dainty ear of course, it'd never do to
have a putf over just one ear, so both
must be hid. No doubt she is not
well versed in "beauty patches." Some
girls deliberately mar what would
otherwise be a perfect complexion by
sticking a little disc, crescent, or
probably some odd-shaoed piece of
black courtplaster on their face
sometimes on one cheek, or on the
nose or forhead. This is very silly,
but really this young lady would
still be in fashion and call her little
mole a beauty patch and not be
ashamed of it.
Our cigar is gone and duty calls.
But our little squint at this little
foible of fashion made clear to us a
hitherto puzzled question. Surely
many girls feel ashamed of their
ears from one cause or another, or
else they could not so flagrantly
transgress against nature and hide
from view and drown the hearing of
the organs God so generously provid provided
ed provided to lend beauty to her features and
to enable her to hear nature's sounds.
Just a word to the boy friends of
such dear girls. Look out for her.
If her ears are covered because they
are unclean, what will they be later
on when here duties are multiplied?
If because they are small, small ears
denote extreme stinginess and your
pay envelope will never jingle in yoar
pocket. If because they are too large,
large ears betoken freeheartedness,
and she will give away all you earn.
If because she would not heed a call
to labor, surely she would fail in
making you a helpmeet. And if she
covers her ears and makes a mon monstrosity
strosity monstrosity of herself. Just to follow in
the wake of fashion, beware of her.
