Its ammunition was paper case cart cartridges
ridges cartridges of .54 or '.56 caliber. The gun
is 'opened by pushing a- spring inside
the trigger guard, which -released a
catch on top the barrel and let it tip
up, similar to the action on some
breechloading shotguns.- The barrel
is chambered for the bullet, and when
the cartridge was .placed in position
the upper end of the paper cartridge
case protruded. The rim of the ba

closed the rim cut the end of the case
off. This released the powder, and

department has spent $88,961.31 and
has the balance in a special fund for
exclusive use in Hamilton county. It
is true that the department has been
able to revise the federal aid allot allotment,

about ten miles of road No. 2 north
of Lake City, in Calhoun county, i
will not at this time secure such an
enormous amount of money, which
was practically one-third of all the
federal aid for the entire state, but
even now .Hamilton county and the
few miles of road No. 2 north of Lake
City in Columbia county will obtain
and has- already obtained together a
grand total for expenditures on this
short stretch of road the sum of
$470330. Does this look like tak

giving nothing in return?
Now, what has been done with the

particular piece of road? In criticism
of one particular member of the de
partment espeecially, it was charged
by the Jasper News th&t the depart department
ment department was' only interested in the con-j
struction of road No. 1. This charge
i3 not well founded. No Jart of this
sum was placed upon road No. 1. The
present department has placed but
three federal aid projects, one in
Nassau county, an outlet north into
the state, one in St. Lucie county, on
the" east coast, .which section certain
ly deserves consideration, and the
other in Alachua county on road No.
2. The department simply took a large
part of the federal aid from Hamilton
county, which was not entitled to such
an enormous amount at this time, and
placed a large part of the same on
road No. 2 in Alachua county. Not
one dollar was placed by this board on
road No. 1.
The department desires to .further
state that of the Convicts now work working
ing working on roads Noi 1 and 2, totaling
420, that 260 of them are now at work
on road No. 2 and 160 on road No. 1.

not believe fairly represent the peo people,

partment department was taking their bonds and
now is diverting their money. This
is absolutely untrue. What are the
facts Columbia county did issue
bends for $400,000. They, had many
and serious disagreements among
themselves about the .issue. Finally
they were validated, but the county
did not, or could not, sell, them to
advantage. They then delivered the
issue to the road department. We
have them now' and have been unable
to sell them. They bear only "five per
cent interest, and we cannot utilize
aty money from them except at a
great discount. We have received in
cash from Columbia county the inter interest
est interest on these bonds. This county" by
reason of its stragetic position
(roads Nos. 1 and 2 crossing at Lake
City) has received and will receive
more road building in the near future
than probably any other county v in
the state. Surely it cannot be heard
to complain, and we do not believe
the fair-minded citizenship of Colum Columbia

Lon this road through Haamilton coun
ty. We are building four bridges on
this road, and we are making the
road fit for travel as we go. In a

beertVmade passable. We have given
our pledges to the bureau of public

in condition for travel and that as
soon as we can; we will complete it as
a hard surfaced road.

his friends, turned his bade on recrea recreation
tion recreation and turned his every thought and
ambition toward the accumulation of
jingling silver and clinking gold. And
when he has reached his goal and has
achieved what he set out to do, he
has found himself friendless and

nothing more in store thsm .the mere
accumulation of more money. That,
it seems to us, is real poverty.
