The following extract from an ar article

to a number of Ocalans who knew the
Birdsey brothers while they were
growing up here. Readers of the
Evening Star must have noticed the
advertisement of the Modern Flour

week in these columns, but very few
possibly ever connected this great

The Macon Telegraph says:
"Unknown to many of its oldest
citizens, Macon has an industry that
manufactures annually $3,000,000 in
wheat products and pays an average
of $30,000 a month in freight charges.
It is the Modern Flour Mills. J. S.
Birdsey is president of the corpora corporation,

of feed daily. Officials of the com company
pany company estimate that $600 worth of cot cotton

are used each day. The grinding part
of the mill proper runs twenty-four
hours a day and the packing and ship shipping

"The wheat storage or elevator ca capacity

This is a little over a month's supply,
as nearly 100,000 bushels of wheat are
ground in a month. The Modern Flour
Mills make it a point to buy all the
Georgia wheat obtainable, and as a
result, the farmers of the state last
year pocketed in cash the proceeds

'Much more Georgia wheat would
be bought if it were obtainable, Ralph
Birdsey said yesterday. Products of
the mill are shipped to North Caro Caro-lnia,

and Alabama. Little is shipped out outside

(L. T. I.)
The High Springs players snatched
the third game of this season from
Ocala yesterday afternoon when Hart Hart-man
man Hart-man pitched them to a three to noth nothing
ing nothing victory. Hartman's timely and
terrific hitting coupled with his in invincible
vincible invincible pitching was the big noise in
this game. He only let up four hits
during the game and himself secured
credit for a two-bagger and a couple
of singles. His two-bagger would
have been a home run but for the tree
in left field. The boy is certainly there
with the willow. Red Ulrich who
twirled for the locals was no small
pumpkin himself. The High Springs
team is famous for its sluggers but
they only connected with six of Red's
offerings and two of these hits were
scratches. One was a fluke pop up to
the pitcher who expected second base
to catch it, and the other was an in infield
field infield hit.
The game had few sensational
plays. Jackson for High Springs and
Brooks for Ocala each made a pretty
catch on first base and saved their
team mates a wild throw. A high
wind made the fielding of fly balls an
uncertain proposition. It caused both
Overstreet and Bamburg to miss high
fouls and made the fielders misjudge
several flies. When the ball left the
bat the outfielders would start for the
fence only to find that the wind had
retarded the speed of the ball to such
an extent that they would have to re retrace
trace retrace their steps in order to. get under
it. On one occasion the wind lulled
a minute and the ball took a sudden
spurt over the field's head.
As it happened:
First Inning
High Springs: Duke, Jackson and
Bracken took the one, two, three order.
Duke tried a grounder to Ulrich but
was thrown out at first. Jackson tried
Jimmie Liddell with a long fly but had
no better success." Bracken drove a
fly to right field which Hansel nabbed
off his shoe strings.

Ocala: Liddell went out, pitcher to
first. Brooks took a shot at second
and was also thrown out at first. Tay Taylor
lor Taylor annexed a clean single to his bat batting
ting batting average, but was left on base
when Van Landingham flew out to
Second Inning
High Springs: Roach went out,
short to first and then Bamburg and
Hartman each took three good healthy
swings and retired the side.
Ocala: Overstreet, Wood and Smith
failed to get on in this inning. Over-
street hit a grounder to Jackson on
first. Harry Wood wasn't satisfied
with Overstreet's luck and tried Jack Jackson
son Jackson w.ith a fly and got no better results.
Smith hit a grounder to second and
was thrown out in spite of his lighting
speed on his hoofs.
Third Inning
High Springs: Hodges, King and
English went out in regular order,
pitcher to first, a strike-out and a fly
to Jimmie.
Ocala: Leavengood and Ulrich went
out with a fly to right and a grounder
to third, but Jimmie was more lucky
and drew an error from Hodges on
second. Jimmie was left on first when
Brooks popped up to first.
Fourth Inning
High Springs: Duke went out, Red
to Joe. Jackson went out, Taylor to
Joe. Bracken also took the Red to Joe
Ocala: Taylor, Van and Overstreet
made three straight outs when they
hit to short and third base.
Fifth Inning
High Springs drew first blood in the
fifth after Red had struck out both
Roach and Bamburg. Hartman was
the third man at bat and popped up a
fly to the infield. When it left the bat
it looked like it was going to second
base but when the wind caught the
ball it began to back up and finally
landed a few feet from the pitcher's
box. Smith who was playing second
thought Red would catch the fly until
it was too late to reach it himself and
the pesky thing hit the ground for a
fluke hit. Hodges hit a long fly to
center field and drew an error, send sending

good were unable to lift the pill out
of the infield and made three quick
outs, pitcher to first, second to first
and first base, unassisted.
Sixth Inning
High Springs: Duke, Jackson and
Bracken for the third time in the
game made three successive outs
without even smelling first. Wonder
why they lead the batting order for
High Springs?

sacker wide awake and was thrown

no use to try any of the infielders so
he calmly fanned.
Seventh Inning
High Springs: Roach and Bamburg
went out with a grounder to pitcher
and a fly to left field, but Hartman
doubled to left. (Looked like a home
run. Thank you, oak tree.)' Hodges
hit a slow one to Van on third and
was thrown out at first, retiring the
Ocala: Taylor led off for Ocala in
this frame with a double to right field.
The ball hugged the ground and sped
just inside the foul line all the way
to the right field fence. Taylor tried
to stretch it for a triple and we fans
can't help but believe he did stretch
it into a three-bagger but Sir Umps,
the lord of the diamond, said nay, nay,
so Taylor was asked to retire to the
bench from third. With one man down
Van stepped up to the plate and lam
med one down the third base line to
the left field fence for a triple, (or at
least that is what he got, but honest
Injun, if Van wasn't out-on third then
Taylor was safe by ten miles.) Ocala
lost a run in the shuffle. It looked
then as if we lost the game in the
same shuffle but later developments
snowed that one run would not have
saved the day. With Vai on third
Overstreet went out, pitcher to first,
and Wood flew out to short, retiring
the side, scoreless.
Eighth Inning
High Springs: King, English and
Duke went out as fast as they had the
nerve' to face Red in this round.
Ocala: Smith led off with a fly to
left. Leavengood made" the second
out, second to first. Ulrich decided; to
try second again and was more lucky
than Leavengood, for Hodges booted
the ball and Red was safe in spite of
his game leg. The crippled boy also
swiped second from Bamberg. Liddell
saw that Hodges was a little off color
so he drove another at him and was
also safe on first when Hodges booted
his seeond one in the inning. Brooks
popped out to first after Liddell had
pilfered the second sack from Bam
berg. Looks like Bamberg had bet better
ter better hire a detective to guard the sec second
ond second sack for him.
Ninth Inning
High Springs sewed the old game
up in the ninth when they put over a
lucky two-bagger and two singles
that were not luck but regular base
ball. Jackson led off and was Jim-

In reviewing general citrus condi conditions

Mr. F. L. Skelly, manager of the Or

Growers, Inc., makes some very in
teresting statements.
It is his opinion that while the or
ange bloom was one of the heaviest
in years, the long continued drouth
has caused much droppage in certain
sections, especially in groves where
cultivation was neglected and that
this condition will undoubtedly result
in a decreased production of oranges.
Reports from all sections seem to
agree that the grapefruit bloom was
scattered and on the whole lighter
than normal. The recent showers
have, of course, benefited the trees,
but whether or not the rains came
early enough and in sufficient volume
to set the fruit remains to. be seen.,
Basing his judgment upon present
conditions, Mr. Skelly believes that
the orange production for the present
year will be no larger than for the
season of 1921, while the grapefruit
crop will be materially less. Sum Summing

"Dawn." He
la the afternoon I went to walk with
one of the girls ; and when I came In
I couldn't find Mother. She wasn't
anywhere downstairs, nor In her room,
nor mine, nor anywhere else on that
ftoor. Aunt ilattie said no, she wasn't
eat, bat that she was sure she didn't
know where she was. She must be
somewhere in the house.
I went upstairs then, another flight.
There wasn't anywhere else to go, and
Mother mast be somewhere, of course.
And It seemed suddenly to me as if
I'd just got to find her. I wanted
her so.
And I found her.
In the little back room where Aunt
Hattle keeps her trunks and mothball
bags. Mother was on the floor in the
corner crying. And when I exclaimed
oat and ran over to her, I found she
wm sitting beside an -old trunk that
was open ; and across her lap was a
perfectly lovely pale-blue satin dress
all trimmed with sliver lace that had
grown black. And Mother was crying
and crying as If her heart would break.
Of course, I tried and tried to stop
her, and I begged her Jo tell me what
was the matter. ButT couldn't do a
thing, not a thing, not for a long time.
Then I happened to say what a lovely
dress, only what a pity it .was that th
lact was all black.
She gave a little choking cry then
and began to talk little short sen
tences all choked up with sobs, so that
I could hardly tell what she was talk
log about.. Then, little by little, I be
gsn to understand.
She said yes. It was all black tar tarnished;
nished; tarnished; and that It was Just like every
thing that she had had anything to dr
with tarnished ; her life and her mar
riage, and Father's life, and mine
everything was tarnished, just like that
silver lace on that dress. And she had
done It by her thoughtless selfishness
and lack of self-discipline.
And when I tried and tried to tell
ber no,, it wasn't, and that I didn't
feel tarnished a bit, and that she
wasn't, nor Father either, she only
cried all the more, and shook her head
and began again, all choked up.
She said this little dress was the
one he wore at the big reception
where, n first met Father. And she
was eo proud and happy when Father

Mked her to marry him ; and she was
still more proud and happy.
. And she said their married life, when
they started out, was Just like that

less spotless and perfect; but that it wasn't
two months before a little bit of tar tarnish

She said she was selfish and willful
and exacting, and wanted Father all to
herself; and she didn't stop to think
that he had his work to do, and his
place to make in the world; and that
all of living, to him, wasn't just in be being
ing being married to her, and attending to
her every whim. She said she could
see It all now, but that she couldn't
then, she was too young, and undis undisciplined,
ciplined, undisciplined, and she'd never been denied
a thing In the world she wanted.
She said things went on worse and
worse and it was all her fault. She
grew sour and cross and disagreeable,
the could see now that she did. But
she did not realize at all then what
she was doing. She was just thinking
f herself always herself; her rights,
her wrongs, her hurt feelings, her
wants and wishes. She never once
thought that he had rights and
wrongs and hurt feelings, maybe.
She said a lot more oh, ever so
much more; but I can't remember it
alL I know that she went on to say
that by and by the tarnish began to
dim the brightness of my life, too;
and that was the worst of all, she
said that Innocent children should
suffer, and their young lives be spoiled
by the kind of living I'd had to have,
with this wretched makeshift of a di divided
vided divided home. She began to cry again
then, and begged me to forgive her;
and I cried and tried to tell her I didn't
mind It ; but, of course, I'm oldf r now,
and I know I do mind It, though I'm try try-tng

aid so, and I guess I cried some more,
Mother jumped up then, and said
"Tut, tut," what was she thinking of
te talk like this when It couldn't do
a bit of good, but only made matters
worse. And she said that only went to
prove how she was still keeping on
tarnishing my happiness and bringing
tears to my bright eyes, when certain
ty nothing of the whole wretched bust-
sees was my fault.
She thrust the dress back Into the
trunk then, and shut the lid. And
she began to talk md laugh and tell
Stories, and be garer and jollier than
Td seen her for ever so long. And
She was that way at dinner, too, until
Grandfather happened to mention the
reception tomorrow night, and ask if
she was going.
She flushed up red then. h, so red!
and said, "Certainly not." Then she

of her breath, that she should

I can hardly write it wants to get
ahead so fast and tell. But I'm going
to keep it sternly back and tell it Just
as it happened, and not begin at the
ice cream instead of the soup.
At the reception I saw Father right
away, but he didn't see me for a long
time. He stood in a corner, and lots
of folks came up and spoke to him and
shook hands ; and he bowed and smiled
but in between, when there wasn't
anybody noticing, he looked so tired
and bored. After a time he stirred and
changed his position, and I think he
was hunting for a chance to get away,
when all of a sudden his eyes, roving
around fhe room, lighted on me.
My! but Just didn't I love the way
he came through that crowd, straight
toward me, without payfng one bit of
attention to the folks that tried to
stop him on the way. And when he

Mother, of course. ;o I said;
"Xo. she didn't come."
'So I see," he answered. And there
was such a hurt, sorry look away back
in his eyes. But right away he smiled,
and said : "But you came I've got
Then he began to talk and tell
stories, just as if I was a young lady
to be entertained. And he took me
over to where they had things to eat,
and Just heaped my plate with chicken
patties and sandwiches and olives and
pink-and-white frosted cake and Ice
cream (not all at once, of course, but
in order.) And I had a perfectly beauti beautiful
ful beautiful time. And Father seemed to like
it pretty well. But after a while he
grew sober again, and his eyes bezan

He took me to a little seat In the
corner afterward, and we sat

frowning, and looking so surprised.!
"Why, that dress must be seventeen
years old, or more."
I nodded again, and I suppose I did
look pleased; it's such fun to have a
secret, you know, and watch folks
guess and wonder. And I kept him
guessing and wondering for quite a
while. Then, of course, I told him
that it was upstairs In Grandfather's
trunk room; that Mother had got it
out, and I saw it.
"But, what was your mother doing
with that dress?" he asked then, look looking
ing looking even more puzzled and mystified.
And then suddenly I thought and
remembered that Mother was crying.
And, of course, she wouldn't want Fa Father

we were; though I never thought of it

He waited, then went on, still hall
to himself, his eyes on the dancers:
"She loved things like this music,
laughter, gayety. I abhorred them. 1
remember how bored I was that night
here till I saw her."
"And did you fall in love with hei

"Well. yes. I think I did, Mary. 1

couldn't take my eyes off her. And
after a little her glance met mine

bird, poised for flight. I know It now
for what it was the very lncarnatior

to come from the very bottom of hi?

fluttering against the bars I"
And right there and then it came te
me that Mother said it was her fault,
too; and that If only she could live it
over again, she'd do differently. And
here was Father saying the same thing.
And all of a sudden I thought, well,
why can't they try it over again, if
they both want to, and if each says
it was their no, his, no, hers well,
his and her fault. (How does the
thing go? I hate grammar!) But I
mean, If she says it's her fault, and he
says it's his. That's what I thought,
anyway. And I determined right then
and there to give them the chance to
try again,..if speaking would do it.
I looked up at Father. He w as still
talking half under his breath, his eyes
looking straight ahead. He had for forgotten
gotten forgotten all about me. That was plain
to be seen. If I'd been a cup of coffee
without any coffee in it, he'd have
been stirring me. I know he would.

He was like that.
"Father, father !" I had to speak
twice, before he heard me. "Do you
really mean that you would like to try
again?" I asked.
"Eh? What?" And Just the way he
turned and,, looked at me showed how
many miles he'd been away from me.
"Try it again, you know what you
said," I reminded him.
"Oh, that !" Such a funny look came
to his, face, half ashamed, half vexed.

"Yes, but would you?" I persisted.
He shook his head ; then, with such
an oh-that-lt-could-be smile, he said:
"Of course we all wish that we
could go back and do it over again
differently. But we never can."
"Yes, but. Father, you can go back,
In this case, and so can Mother, 'cause
you both want to," I hurried on, al almost
most almost choking in my anxiety to get it
all out quickly. "And Mother said it
was her fault. I heard her."
"Her fault!" I could see that Fa Father

faced me.
"Mary, what are you talking about?"
he asked then. And I'd have been
scared of his voice if it hadn't been
for the great light that was shining
In his eyes.
Buf I looked into his eyes, and
wasn't scared; and I told him every everything,
thing, everything, every single thing all about
how Mother had cried over the little
blue dress that day In the trunk-room,
and how she had shown the tarnished
lace and said that she had tarnished
the happiness of him and of herself
and of me ; and that It was all her
fault; that she was thoughtless and
willful and exacting and a spoiled
child ; and, oh. if she could only try It
over again, how differently she would

He didn't Interrupt me not long
interruptions. He did speak out a
quick little word now and then, at
some of the parts; and once I know I
saw him wipe a tear from his eyes.
After that he put up his hand and sat
with his eyes covered all the rest of
the time I was talking. And he didn't
take it down till I said:
"And so, Faiher, that's why I told
you ; 'cause it seemed to me if you
wanted to try again, and she wanted
to try again, why can't you do it? Oh,

This last I added in my most per persuasive

on his face even before he began te
shake his head.
