every man and woman resident m the
state.
Gentlemen: There is no use in re recounting
counting recounting the crime for which Menden Menden-hall
hall Menden-hall received a sentence that was

shorn of justice and tempered with

mercy. Mendenhall was not of the
ignorant class when he committed the

act for which he has since been pay

ing the price; he was one of the more
select peoples, who knew well that in

carrying out the plans he had cun

ningly contrived there was a risk. He
was active in church work; his envir environments
onments environments were of the best; his business
acumen was far above par; and be because
cause because of such conditions his. crime was
far more disingenous. You, members

of the pardoning board, know all these

facts; if you are ignorant of them you
are holding your position under false
prtenses.

Gentlemen: It is strongly rumored
that a majority of your pardoning
board is in favor of releasing Men Mendenhall
denhall Mendenhall on the grounds that. he is a
model prisoner and "a Christian with
wonderful influence over his prison
mates." Possiblv there are other

reasons for. his exculpation. That he
was "a Christian with wonderful in influence"

double murder has never been denied;

Eugene A. Mobley, Rev. Robert F. the
Rogers officiating. Present were only at
a few friends and a number of guests 'the
of the hotel, which hzs been a home j
for Mr. Mobley for some years, ana ;
where he is held in affectionate esteem
by the proprietors and their families.
( The bride is a pretty young lady,
born and raised in Worcester, Eng
land, where many American troops
were quartered during the war. She
aid not meet Mr. Mobley in, England,
tho' he was posted there after the
armistice, but perhaps when she came
to America a little over eight months
ago the fact that he had been one
of the boys in O. D. that she had been
po used to seeing in her homeland
made their acquaintance more like the
meeting of friends than" mere acquain acquaintances.
tances. acquaintances. Miss Edwards came to Amer-
. ica and Ocala to join her mother, Mrs.
J. W. Akin, who has been one of our
city's most esteemed ladies .for sev several
eral several years.-
Mr. Eugene A. Moblejr came to
Ocala from his home in Suwannee
county a number of years ago, and
has proven himself a quiet, indus
trious young man, always doing his
bit and making no fuss about it. He
joined Company A and had served an
enlistment when the guard was called
to the border. The next year, when
the war with Germany began, he went
back to his place in the ranks, and
served with the 124th Infantry (Sec (Second
ond (Second Florida) until the armistice. He
went to France with the machine gun
company of the regiment and" saw
considerable service during the last
weeks of the war. He attained the
rank of first sergeant, and having had
much experience with merchandise
and keeping accounts was retained in
sub depot work in France and Eng
land until well up into 1919. Return
ing home, he immediately resumed his
position with Mclver & MacKay, kept
'for him while he was overseas. With
his comrades, his employers and all

Whis other friends Mr. Mobley stands

. high, and the Star is only one of many
to wish happiness and long life to him
and his bride.
Mr. and Mrs. Mobley left on the
! night train for Live t)ak for a visit to
Mr. Mobley's relatives. They have
obtained rooms at the dormitory and
on their return will make their home
there until they can find a house.
