Their Third Annual Convention, Held
'Last Week in Orlando
A "missionary from Batang, Tibet,
speaking of the customs and manners
of the people of that country said that
there is a saying in that country that
when three people get together there
is. a fight. But here in America a
hundred women can get together and
talk over their troubles and successes
and part better friends. This is one
of the impressions that the delegates
at the convention of the Business and
Professional Women's Clubs in Or Orlando
lando Orlando carried home with them.
' There were a hundred women in
Orlando representing fifty different
vocations,"' yet agreeing on the big "-
essentials necessary for the success of
any organization. The Business and
Professional Woman's Club stands for
the promotion of the interest of busi
ness and professional women, the en encouragement

among -them, the elevation of stand standards,

make a loud, fierce kick about the
prices of certain much used commodi commodities
ties commodities frinstance, bread and ice. As
the public is supplied with both by
private firms, we are reluctant to
tackle the subject. Competition and
the law of supply and demand are the
only "forces that have ever had per permanent
manent permanent influence on prices. In times
of war, and other great emergencies,
it is sometimes advisable for govern governments
ments governments to regulate prices, but at other
times it- generally does more harm
than good. Of late years, railroads
and manufacturers have realized that
it is wiser to co-operate than compete,
so competition is, rapidly becoming a
negligible factor. When we consider
that people are steadily leaving the
farms and crowding into the cities, the
question is not so much the price of
bread as, in the not distant future, ob obtaining
taining obtaining it at all. We have made in inquiries
quiries inquiries and find that the price of
bread, ice and most other things is as
. reasonable in Ocala as elsewhere. It
was ; reported that Gainesville bread
was being shipped to Ocala and sold
in our stores cheaper than our own
bread. It is not being shipped here in
any great quantity or Ocala bakeries
would have to reduce prices, We find
on inquiry that bread is selling by re retail
tail retail in Ocala for less than it is in
Gainesville. Milk, which is as much
a necessity of life as bread, is selling
more cheaply in Ocala than in any
city in Florida, and there are other
important items on the bill of fare on
which Ocala sells lower than other
As for ice, we find that it costs no
more in, Ocala than in other Florida
cities except the largest ones. Ice is
costing about fifty per cent more now
than it did twenty-five years ago and
it is better ice. Ice, of course, costs
more in the South than it does in the
north, where artificial ice has t6 meet
the competition of natural ice. But ice
in the big cities costs 100 "per cent
more than it did before the war, and
the reason is the increased cost of la labor
bor labor and materials. High as the price
of ice is, it is wasted more than al almost
most almost any other commodity. People
are extravagant with it. If they were j
economical, they could get along with
Use, which would be the same or bet better
ter better than a lower price. As Jt is, a
small family can make out with fifteen
cents worth a day; a larger one on

The average American household
buys more bread than it needs, and
throws away some of it as soon as it
becomes stale. It's a crime Jo throw
away bread. This average American
absorbs too many cold drinks, to the
detriment of his or her teeth, stomach
and pocketbook. This little corner of
America has to suffer not only for its
own extravagance but the combined
extravagance of the nation. But there

is one thing "you can be sure of, and

that is that Ocal is doing about as
well as the average, and a lot better
than the unaverage.
We are aware that this is not the
popular view of the matter, but in
writing on anysubject we are com compelled
pelled compelled to deal with conditions as we
find them, and not as they should be.
Any person who takes the opposite
view, and will send in a well-written
article on the subject will ?be given
place for it.

Cow Moose Skilful Boxer.
In the northern and western forest
regions of Canada the snow piles deep deeply
ly deeply throughout the winter. In these
forests roams the king of the deer
family, the moose. To combat the high high-piling
piling high-piling drifts, the animals gather In
little bands of from three to a dozen
head and trample down the snow over
certain limited areas. Thus, when the
snow lies all around them, from three
to eight feet deep, the moose have a
small stretch of-country packed hard,
so they can- get around easily to
browse off the surrounding trees.
From these "yards," as they are
called, the moose are at times driven
by, wolves or by dogs and men. The
animal flounders through- the deep
snow till it is exhausted, and then
proves an easy prey to its pursuers.
Though she has no horns, -the cow
moose possesses dangerous weapons In
her two forefeet, which can .strike for forward

deliver most telling blows.

Well, once more school Is done, my
trunk is all packed, and Pm ready to
go to Andersonville. I leave tomorrow
morning. But not as I left last year.
Oh, no. It Is very, very different. Why
this year Tm really going as Mary.
Honestly, Mother has turned me into
Mary before I go. Now, what do you
think of that? And if I've got to be
Mary there and Mary here, too, when
can I ever be Marie? Oh, I know I
said I'd be willing to be Mary half,
and maybe more than half, the time.
But when it comes to really being
Mary out of turn extra time, that is
quite another thing.
And I am Mary.
I've learned to cook. That's Mary.
Tve been studying astronomy. That's
I've learned to walk quietly, speak
softly, laugh not too loudly, and be a
lady at all times. That's Mary.
And now, to add to all this. Mother
has had me dress like Mar;. Yes, she
began two weeks ago. She came into
my room one morning and said she
wanted to look over my dresses and
things; and Ivcould see, by the way
she frowned and bit her Up and tapped
her foot on the floor, that she wasn't
suited. She said:
"I think, my dear, that on Saturday
we'll "have to go In town shopping.
Quite a number of these things will
not do at all."
And I was so happy Visions of new
dresses and hats and shoes rose be before
fore before me, and even the pink beaded silk
came into my mind though I didn't
really have much hopes of that.
Well, we went shopping on Satur Saturday,
day, Saturday, but did we get the pink silk?
We did not. We did get you'd never
guess what. We got two new gingham
dresses, very plain and homely, and a
pair of horrid, thick, low shoes. Why,
I could have cried I did 'most cry as
I exclaimed
- "Why Mother, those are Mary
things !"
"Of course, they're Mary things,
answered Mother, cheerfully. "That's
what If meant to buy Mary things, as
you call them. Aren't you going to be
Mary Just next week? Of course, you
are! And didn't you tell me last year,
as soon as you got there, Miss Ander Ander-'son
'son Ander-'son objected to your clothing and
bought new for you? Well, 1 am try trying
ing trying to see that she does net have to
do that this year."
And then she bought me a brown
serge suit and a hat so tiresomely
sensible that even Aunt Jane would
love them, I know. And tomorrow I've
got to put thenf on to go In.
Do you wonder that I say I am Mary
When I Am Neither One.
Well, I came last night. I had on
the brown suit and the sensible hat,
and every turn of the wheels all day
had been singing: "Mary, Mary, now
you're Mary!" Why, Mother even
called me Mary when she said good good-by.
by. good-by. She came to the junction with me
just as she had before, and put me
on the other train.
"Now, remember, dear, you're to try
very hard to be a joy and a, comfort
to your father Just the little Mary
that he wants you to be. Remember,
he has been very kind to let you stay
with me so long."
She cried when she kissed me just
as she did before; but she didn't tell
me this time to be sure and not love
Father better than I did her. I noticed
that. But, of course, 1 didn't say any anything,
thing, anything, though I might have told her
easily that I knew nothing could ever
make me love him better than I did
When we got to Andersonville, and
the train rolled Into the station, I
stepped down from the cars and
looked, over to where the carriages
were to find John and Aunt Jane. But
they weren't there. There wasn't even
the carriage there; and I can remem remember
ber remember now just how my heart sort of felt
sick inside of me when I thought that
even Aunt Jane had forgotten, and
that there wasn't anybody to meet
There was a beautiful big green au automobile

wished that had come to meet me;

want to say ; and I knew it the minute
Td said it. Why, it sounded as If 1
missed Aunt Jane, and wanted her In Instead

so pleased and excited to see him thai
I could hardly speak.
tie just -kind of smiled, and looked
queer, and said that Aunt Jane er
couldn't come. Then I felt sorry; foi
I saw, of course, that that was why he
had come; not because he wanted to
but because Aunt Jane couldn't, so h
had, to. And I could have cried, all
the while he was fixing it up about
my trunk.
He turned then and led the way
straight over to where the carriages
were, and the next minute there was
John touching his cap to me; only It
was a brand-new John looking to
sweet for anything in a chauffeur's
cap and uniform. And, what do yoc
think? He was helping me Into that
beautiful big green car before I knew
Why, Father, Father r I cried
"You don't mean I just couldn'1
finish ; but he finished for me.
"It Is ours yes. Do you like it?"
"'Like it !" I guess he didn't need to
have me say any more. But I did say
more. I just -raved and raved .over
that car until Father's eyes crinkled
all up In little smile wrinkles, and he
"I'm glad. I hoped you'd like IL"
"I guess I do like it !" I cried. Then
I went on to tell him how I thought
it was the prettiest one I ever saw,
and 'way ahead of even Mr. Easter Easter-brook's.
brook's. Easter-brook's. "And, pray, who is Mr. Easterbrook?"'
asked Father then. "The violinist,
perhaps eh?"
Now, wasn't it funny he should have
remembered that there was a violin violinist?
ist? violinist? But, of course, I told him no, It
wasn't the violinist It was another
one that took Mother to ride, the one
I told him about in the Christmas let letter
ter letter ; and he was very rich, and had
two perfectly beautiful cars; and I
was going on to tell more how he
didn't take Mother now but I didn't
get a chance, for Father interrupted,
and said, "Yes, yes, to be sure." And
he showed he wasn't Interested, for
all the' little smile wrinkles were gone,
and he looked stern and dignified,
more like he used to. And he went on to
say that, as we had almost reached
home, he had better explain right away
that Aunt Jane was no longer living
there; that his cousin from the West,
Mrs. Whitney, was keeping house for
him now. She was a very nice lady,
and he hoped I would like her. And
I might call her "Cousin Grace."
And before I could even draw breath
to ask any questions, we were home;
and a' real pretty lady, with a light light-blue
blue light-blue dress on, was helping me out of
the car, and kissing me as she did so.
Now, do you wonder that I have
been rubbing my eyes and wondering
If I was really I, and If this was An Andersonville?
dersonville? Andersonville? ONE. WEEK LATER
It Isn't a dream. It's all really,
truly true everything: Father com coming
ing coming to meet me, the lovely automobile,
and the pretty lady In the light-blue
dress, who kissed me. And when I
went downstairs the next morning I
found out it was real, 'specially the
pretty lady; for she kissed me again,
and said she hoped I'd be happy there.
And she told me to amuse myself any
way I liked, and said, if I wanted to,
I might run over to see some of the

girls, but not to make any plans for
the afternoon, for she was going to
take me to ride.
Now, what do you think of that?
Go to see the girls In the morning,
and take a ride an automobile ride!
in the afternoon. In Andersonville!
Why, I couldn't believe my ears. Of
course, I was wild and craxy with de delight
light delight but it was all so different Why, I
began to think almost that I was Ma Marie,
rie, Marie, and not Mary at alL
And It's been that way the whole
week through, Tve had a beautiful
time. Tve been so excited I And Moth Mother
er Mother is excited, too. Of course, I wrote
her and told her all about it right
away. And she wrote right back and
wanted to know everything every everything
thing everything I could tell her; all the little
things. And she was so Interested in
Cousin Grace, and wanted to know all
about her; said she never heard of her
before, and was she Father's own cou cousin,
sin, cousin, and how old she was, and was she
pretty, and was Father around the
house more now, and did I see a lot
of him? She thought from something
I said that I did.
I've just been writing her again, and
I could tell her more now, of course,
than I could In that first letter. I've
been here a whole week, and. of
course, I know more about things, and
have done more.
I told her that Oousln Grace wasn't
realty Father's 'cousin at all. so It
wasn't any wonder she hadn't ever
heard of her. She was the wife of
Father's third cousin who went to
South America six years ago and
caught the fever and died there. So
this Mrs. Whitney Isn't really any rela relation
tion relation of his at all. But he'd always
known her, even before she married
his cousin ; and so, when her husband
died, and she didn't have any home,
he asked her to come here.
I don't know why Aunt Jane went
away, but.she' been gone "most four
months now, they say here. Nellie
told me. Nellie Is the maid I mean
hired girl here now. (I will keep for
getting that rm Mary now and must
use the Mary words here.)
Read the Unclassified Ads.

I told Mother that she (Cousin
Grace) was quite old, but not so old
as Aunt Jane. And she is pretty, and
everybody loves her. I think even
Father likes to have her around better
than he did his own sister Jane, for he.
sometimes stays around quite a lot
now after meals", and in the evening,
I mean. And that's what I told Moth Mother.
er. Mother. Of course, he still likes his stars
the best of anything, but not quite as
well as he used to, maybe not to give
all his time to them.
I forgot to say that Father Is going
to let me go back to school again this
year ahead of his time, just as he did
last year. So you see, really, I'm here
only a little bit of a while, as it Is
now, and it's no wonder I keep forget forgetting
ting forgetting I am Mary.
Things are awfully funny here this
time. I wonder If It's all Cousin Grace
that makes it so. Anyhow, she's just
as different as different can be from
Aunt Jane. And things are different,
Why, I forget half the time that Tm
Mary. Honestly, I do. I try to be
Mary. I try to move quietly, speak
gently, and laugh softly. Just as Moth Mother
er Mother told me to. But before I, know it
I'm acting natural again Just like
Marie, you know.
And I believe it is Cousin Grace.
She never looks at you in Aunt Jane's
rm-amazed-at-you way. And she laughs
herself a lot, and sings and plays, too
real pretty lively things; not Just
hymn tunes. And the house Is differ different.
ent. different. There are four geraniums in the
dining room window, and the parlor is
open every day. The wax flowers are
there, but the hair wreath and the
coffin plate are gone. Cousin Grace
doesn't dress like Aunt Jane, either.
She wears' pretty white and blue
dresses, and her hair Is curly and
I think all this Is why I keep for forgetting
getting forgetting to be Mary. But, of course,
I understand that Father expects me
to be Mary, and so I try to remember.
I understand it all now everything:
why the house is different, and Fa Father,
ther, Father, and everything. And it is Oousln
Grace, and it is a love story.
Father is In love with her.
Now I guess I shall have something
for this book!
It seems funny now that I didn't
think of it at first But I didn't not
until I heard .Nellie and her beau' talk talking
ing talking about it Nellie said she wasn't
the only one in the house that was
going to get married. And when he
asked her what she meant she said it
was Dr. Anderson and Mrs. Whitney.
That anybody could see It that wasn't
as blind as a bat
My, but wasn't I excited? I just
guegss I was. And, of course, I saw
that I had been blind as a bat But

I began to open my eyes after that
and watch not disagreeably, you
know, but just glad and interested,
and on account of the book.
And I saw:
That Father stayed In the house a
lot more than he used to.
That he smiled more.
That he actually asked Cousin Grace
and me to play for him several times.
That he went with us to the Sunday
school picnic (I never saw Father at
a picnic before, and I don't believe he
ever saw himself at one.)
That oh, I don't know, but a whole
lot of little things that I can't remem remember;
ber; remember; but they were all unmiistakable,
very unmistakable. And I wondered,
when I saw It all, that I had been as
blind as a bat before.
When I wrote Mother I told her
all about It the signs and symptoms,
I mean, and how different and thawed thawed-out
out thawed-out Father was ; and I asked If she
didn't think it was so, too. But she
didn't answer that part She didn't
write much, anyway. It was -An aw awfully
fully awfully snippy letter; but she said
she had a headache and didn't feel
at all well. So that was the rea reason,
son, reason, probably, why she didn't say
more about Father's love affair, I
mean. She only said she was glad,
she was sure, If Father had found an
estimable woman to make a home for
him, and she hoped they'd be happy.
Then she went on talking about some something
thing something else. And she didn't write much
more, anyway, about anything.
Well, of all the topsy-turvy worlds,
this is the topsy-turvlest I am sure.
What do they want me to do, and
which do they want me to be? Oh, I
wish I was Just a plain Susie or Bes Bessie,
sie, Bessie, and not a cross-current and a con contradiction,
tradiction, contradiction, with a father that wants
me to be one thing and a mother that
wants me to be another! It was bad
enough before, when Father wanted
me to be Mary, and Mother wanted
me to be Marie. But now
Well, to begin at the beginning.
If s all over the love story, I mean.
and I know now why lfs been so hard
for me to remember to be Mary and
why everything Is different and alL
They don't want me to be Mary.
They want me to be Marie.
And now I don't know what to
think. If Mother's going to want me
to be Mary, and Father's going to
want me to be Marie, how am I going
to know what anybody wants, ever?
Besides, It was getting to be such a
beautiful love story Father and Cou

and all of a sudden I determined to
tell Father how glad I was, about him
and Cousin Grace and how I hoped
it would last havfr? him out there
with us. r! n!! that. Ar.rt .1 told him.
I don't remember w hat I said exact exactly.

what I wanted to when he did stop
me. Why, he almost jumped out of
his chair. v
"Mary!" he gasped. "What In the
world are you talking about?"
"Why, Father, I was telling yon," I
explained. And I tried to be so cool
and calm that it would make him calm
and cool, too. (But It dldnt calm him
or cool him one bit) "It's about when
you're married and"
"Married !" he interrupted again.
(They never let me interrupt like
To Cousin Grace yes. But Father,
you you are going to marry Oousln
Grace, aren't you?" I cried--and I did
'most cry, for I saw by his face that
he was not
"That is not my present intention,"
he said. His lips came together hard,
and he looked over his shoulder to see
if Cousin Grace was coming back.
"But you're going to some time I
begged him.
"I do not expect to."
I fell back In my chair, and I know
I looked grieved and hurt and disap disappointed,
pointed, disappointed, as I almost sobbed:
"Oh, Father, and when I thought
you were going to!"
"There, there, child! He spoke,
stern and almost cross now. "This ab absurd
surd absurd nonsensical Idea has gone quite
far enough. Let us think no more
about It" ;
"It isnt absurd and nonsensical!"
I cried. And I could hardly say the
words, I was choking np so. "Every "Everybody

wrote Mother so ; and
"You wrote that to your mother?"
He did jump from his chair this time.
"Yes ; and she was glad."
"Oh. she was !" He sat down sert of
llmp-llke and queer.
"Yes. Sire said she was glad you'd
found an estimable woman to make a
home for you."
"Oh, she did." He said this, too, In
that queer, funny, quiet kind of way.
"Yes." I spoke, decided and firm. Td
begun to think, all of a sudden, that
maybe he didn't appreciate Mother as
much as she did him; and I deter determined,
mined, determined, right then and there to make
him, if I could. When I remember all
the lovely things she'd said about

time, even more decided and firm. "I
don't believe you appreciate Mother."
"Eh, Whatr
He made me jump this time, he
turned around with such a jerk, and
spoke so sharply. But In spite of the
jump I still held on to my subject
firm and decided.
"I say I don't believe you appreciate
my mother. You acted right now as
if you didn't believe she meant it when
I told you she was glad you had found
an estimable woman to make a home

because she said it before, once, last

one. Yes, and that isnt all. There's
another reason why I know Mother
