will be grown by the members of the

The marketing will be done by a sales

for each packing center and chapter

will be required to sign is a binding
one that can be enforced in the courts
necessary. The contract fixes a
nonalty for its breach. It is a con
tract with the Association and with
each and every member. It is not a
contract with a buyer or sales agency.
The grower agrees to handle all of his
tomatoes that are marketable thru the
Association and thru no one else. He
also agrees to grow his tomatoes in
accordance with such rules as the As Association

tract is similar to that used by the
successful marketing Associations of
the Pacific coast, and is based upon
jentracts prepared by Mr. Aaron
Shapiro, who has gained an internat
ional reputation as an organizer of co
operative marketing associations. He
helped organize the raisin growers of

And, so Mr. Geo. P. Raney has de

cided that he will not again be a can candidate
didate candidate .for the chairmanship of the
state democratic executive committee,

which is meeting in Jacksonville to

day. Mr, Raney has been chairman
for eight years and has made a good
one., He has made some mistakes,

among which is this last, to perpetuate
which he has called the committee to
meet today. All the same, we should
be glad if his resignation was refused

and he was required to serve longer.

No doubt' exists in our mind that he is

square, and tries to do right.

The. editor of the Dade City Ban Banner,
ner, Banner, whom we have never met, but

who from his editorial page we infer
is a gentleman and a journalist, need

not feel chagrined if he, a compara

tive newcomer, is not wise to all the
ins and outs of the Florida primary

Jaw, when so few there are to the

jnanpr born, who do understand it,
and when some who have a right to
claim to be versed in it try to twist
it to undemocratic purposes. Accord According
ing According to the primary law, and to the
custom of many' years, a member of
the state democratic committee is
elected from each county at eyery
general election. However, in many
counties committeemen hold over for
several years. It is primary law and
bad law, for it makes much confus confusionthat
ionthat confusionthat when a man is .a candidate
for antffice and has no opposition that
, his name is not printed on the pri primary
mary primary ticket. The committeeman from
this county has held that office for
eight years or more, during which
time, he has been voted for only once.
We think a similar case exists in

Well, they must have had a high old

time in the editorial room of the
Tampa Tribune Tuesday afternoon.

One of the bright, original geniuses
that does the high-thundering editorial
work on that would-be overpowering
sheet picked up a copy of the Dade
City Banner, and thought it was a
copy of the Ocala Star. We don't
know why he thought that all we
have to say in the way of an explana explanation
tion explanation is that when we get so that we
can't tell one paper from another we
go away from the office and stay away
until we are sober. At any rate, this
twentieth century Greeley clipped out
an editorial regarding primary rules
and supposing it was from the Star
proceded to lecture and instruct the
Star about it. This lecture is a gem.
Sounds like one of Mr. Caudle's, if
that gentleman had ever mustered
enough Dutch courage to deliver one.
It closed with the following para paragraph,
graph, paragraph, meant to be impressive, but
which, when you bear in mind that
the poor simp who wrote it, was writ writ-ins
ins writ-ins at one paper when he thought he
was writing at another, is excruciat excruciatingly
ingly excruciatingly funny:
"The Ocala Star has confused facts
with would-be fancies. It should learn
the significance of the remark made
by a wise observer, 'It is better not to
know so much, than to know so much
that is not so.'
We daresay that by this time the
Tribune writer wishes that he him himself
self himself had not been so sure of some
things that did not exist.

A citizen living out near Morriston
was in town the other day and spoke
to the Star about one of the bad hills
on the Blitchton road, the surface of
which had been turned to mud by the
recent rain. He said the road gang
for, that district had thrown some
sand on it. They have been throwing
sand on that hill ever since automo automobiles
biles automobiles came into use, and the road is
worse now than it was then. There
has been enough-work thrown away
on, that road to have made a good
road of it clear to the county line, and
there is no indication that the county
commissioners intend to ever have any
scientific, permanent work done on it.
There is-at present no really good
road on which people can get into or
out of Ocala. The roads out in the
country" are in the same condition.
Soon people will stop coming to Mar Marion
ion Marion county to settle but not much soon sooner
er sooner than some of those here will move
Of ten, invitations are made that the
editor of the Star go out in the coun country
try country and look' at this or that piece of
road, and the editor would like to go
if the invitations were not always set
for times that he cannot accept them.
The editor of the Star is pretty well

The Star would fain call the atten

tion of the city manager to a nuisance
that needs abatement. Every evening

when the people are coming out of
prayermeeting or the picture show
and strolling peacefully home, stop

ping mayhap at the ice cream parlors
or taking short rides over our excel excellent
lent excellent brick streets, which the said c.
m. has done so much in such short
time to increase, there emerges upon
the public square and the streets most
used by the citizens and citizenesses
and boyesses and girlesses, a snorting,
rattling demon, with one glaring eye
end a long tail, which he agitates vio violently,
lently, violently, leaving a long, thick cloud of
dust, that fills eyes and ears and
spoils clothes and evidently carries
germs of diseases. Tis the' street street-sweeper,
sweeper, street-sweeper, which in the good old days
before the war did not come out of
hiding until everybody but the police,
the hackmen and the Star reporter
had gone home. For godsake, Mr.
Brumby, keep that thing tied up until
11 p. m. and have the principal streets
sprinkled before you let it loose. It
has no business charging out on the
defenseless populace in such fashion.

There appeared in the Star's report
yesterday of the council proceedings a
paragraph to the effect that Mr. J. W.
Johnson had disputed the amount of a
bill for city water, but the council had
insisted on the bill being paid. Mr.
Johnson brought to the Star office this
morning a long article to the effect,
we suppose., that the council or the bill
for water or the Star or all three are
wrong. We haven't time to read the
artiele and we are not going to print
any article of such length about such
a small matter unless it is paid for.
We wish to say, however, that in the.
course of a long acquaintance with Mr.
Johnson we have not known him to use
any more water than we do, and our
bill never exceeds the minimum. Also,
that in future, we want the council to
avoid disputes with Mr. Johnson, for
we shall carefully abstain from men mentioning
tioning mentioning any more of its controveries
with him.

No, dear reader, the statements we
are sending out are not for the "pur "purpose
pose "purpose of showing you the quality of
prnting our job department can do.

CHAPTER I. At Thornton F&IrcMWs

been a da k period in his father's life
which for almost thirty years has caused
him suffering. The secret is hinted at
to a document left by the elder Fair Fair-child,

Beamish, a lawyer.

to go to Ohadi.

Falrchild learns something of the mystery
connected with the disappearance of "SIs "SIs-sie"

the mine. He meets the girl he had as assisted,

It came to Fairchild then the sen sentence
tence sentence In his father's letter regarding
someone who would hurry to his aid
when he needed him, the references
of Beamish, and the allusion of Moth Mother
er Mother Howard to a faithful friend.
Again the heavy voice boomed:
"You know me now, eh?"
"You bet! You're Harry Harkins !M
"'Arkins it is! I came just as soon
as I got the cablegram !"
"The cablegram?"
"Yeh." Harry pawed at his won wonderful
derful wonderful mustaehe. "From Mr. Beamish,
you know. 'E sent it. Said you'd
started out 'ere all alone. And I
couldn't stand by and let you do that.
So 'ere I am !"
"But the expense, the long trip
across the ocean, the
" 'Ere I am !" said Harry again.
"Ain't that enough?"
They had reached the veranda now,
to stand talking for a moment, then
to go within, where Mother Howard
awaited, eyes glowing, in the parlor.
Harry flung out both arms.
"And I still love you!" he boomed,
as he caught the gray-haired, laugh laughing
ing laughing woman In his arms. "Even if you
did run me off and wouldn't go back
to Cornwall !"
Ked-faoeu, sue pushed mm away
and slapped his cheek playfully; it
was like the tan of a light breeze
against granite. Then Harry turned.
"'Ave you looked at the mine?"
The question brought back to Fair-
child the happenings of the morning
and the memory of the man who had
trailed him. He told his story, while
Mother Howard listened, her arms
crossed, her head bobbing, and while
Harry, his big grir. still on his lips,
took in the details with avidity. Then
the grin faded.
"Le's go up there," he said quietly.
This time the trip to Kentucky
gulch was made by skirting the town;
soon they were on the rough, narrow
roadway leading into the mountains.
A long time they walked, at last to
stop in the shelter of the rocks where
Fairchild had shadowed his pursuer,
and to glance carefully ahead. No
one was in sight Harry jabbed out
a big finger.
""That's It," he announced, "straight
a'ead !"
They went on, Fairchild with a grip gripping
ping gripping at his throat that would not
down. This had been the hope of his
father and here his father had met
what? He swerved quickly and
stopped, facing the bigger man.
"Harry," came sharply, "I know
that I may be violating an unspoken
promise to my father. But I simply
can't stand it any longer. What hap happened
pened happened here? There was some sort of
Harry chuckled in concealment,
Falrchild thought, of something he
did not want to tell him.
"I should think so! The timbers
gave way and the mine caved In !"
"Not that! My father ran away
from this town. You and Mother
Howard helped him. You didn't come
back. Neither did my father. Even Eventually

toward his partner.

They turned for the mouth of the

muck, the torch extinguished now. A
moment of watchfulness from the
cover of the darkness, then Harry
pointed. On the opposite hill, the fig figure

Just a second. Then he had faded.
And with the disappearance of the
watcher, Harry nudged his partner in
the ribs and went forth into the
brighter light. An hour" more and
they were back in town. Harry
reached for his mustache again.
"Go on down to Mother 'Oward's,"
he commanded. "I've got to wander
around and say 'owdy to what's left
of the fellows that was 'ere when I
was. It's been twenty years since I've
been away, you know," he added, "and

Falrchild obeyed the Instructions,
looking back over his shoulder as he
walked along toward the boarding
house, to see the big figure of his com companion
panion companion loitering up the street, on the
beginning of his home-coming tour.
The blocks passed. Fairchild turned
through the gate of Mother Howard's
boarding house and went to his room
to await the call for dinner. The
world did not look exceptionally
good to him; his brilliant dreams had
not counted upon the decay of more
than a quarter of a century, the slow,
but sure dripping of water which had
seeped through the hills and made
the mine one vast well, Instead of the
free open gateway to riches which he
had planned upon. An hour of thought
and Fairchild ceased trying to look
into the future, obeying, instead, the
insistent clanging of the dinner bell
from downstairs. Slowly he opened
the door of his room, trudged down
the staircase then stopped in bewil bewilderment.

all the splendor that a miner can
He had bought a new suit, brilliant
blue, almost electric in its flashiness,
nor had he been careful as to style.
The cut of the trousers was somewhat
along the lines of fifteen years be before,
fore, before, with their peg tops and heavy
cuffs. Beneath the vest, a glowing,
watermelon-pink shirt glared forth
from the protection of a purple tie.
A wonderful creation was on his head,
dented in four places, each separated
with almost mathematical precision.
Below the cuffs of the trousers were
bright tan, bump-toed shoes. Harry
was a complete picture of sartorial
elegance, according to his own dreams.
What was more, to complete it alt

was a diamond, bulbous and yellow

Beginning yesterday afternoon
Judge Futch conducted the prelimi preliminary
nary preliminary hearing of the two white boys,
Martin and Whitesides, who are charg charged
ed charged with the murder of Robert Law
rence on the lot back of the foundry
s few days ago.
Officer Bronson was the first witness
far the state and told of the discoveri
es the murdered man and the general
happenings that night-
A 13-year-old negro girl named Al Alberta
berta Alberta Jones was the next witness. Al Al-terta's
terta's Al-terta's story follows: She and an another
other another girl were at the depot and saw
Arthur Martin and two other white
boys, there. Arthur told her to go on
up the A. C. L. raiiroad towards the
orange packing house, she said, and
they would follow. They went up the
railroad as far as the packing house
and sat on the railroad. When A. C.
L. train No. 9 passed at a little after
1 o'clock they all hid behind trees and
bushes until it was gone and then
cunie back to the railroad. As they
sat on the rails in front of the packing
house some one threw a rock and hit
Martin. Martin jumped up and look looked
ed looked around. About that time a negro
r.ian came up the railroad from the
lailroad and Martin stopped him and
asked if he threw the rock. The man
said no and went on uptown. Martin
then said he was going to kill him a
negro. Alberta and Lumb then left
the boys and walked on down towards
the creamery. When they got to the
creamery they heard some one say,
'Oh, Lordy, Lordy; I ain't the man,"
and heard Arthur Martin's voice say
"I don't give a damn." Albert said she
had known Martin for some time and
knew his voice well. She and Lumb
then walked on around toward the
Seaboard freight depot.
Upon cross examination, Alberta
seemed positive that Fred Whitesides
was not one of the boys with Martin,
so Whitesides was released.
The attorney for the defense show showed
ed showed Alberta a letter that was purported
to have been written to her by her
chum Lumb while they were both in
jail. Alberta denied having read the
letter. The letter was introduced in
evidence and was a request from
Lumb to Alberta not to tell that they
were at the packing house and to tell
that they heard the shots and thought
it was an automobile tire.
The state then rested and the de defense
fense defense brought forward Lumb Jones as
its first witness. Lumb denied writing
the letter that was produced and said
that she wrote a letter on, unruled
paper while this letter was on lined
tablet paper. She was requested to
write the letter in the court room so
that the writing could be compared
with the letter in hand. The two writ writings
ings writings were entirely different. Lumb
said she had written Alberta to tell
the truth, and that she gave it to Oscar
Ellis to deliver and that Oscar had
first shown the letter to Mr. Chalker
and then tore it up.
Sheriff S. C. M. Thomas was put on
the stand to testify that Lumb Jones
had told him two different stories
since being in jail. Mr. Thomas said
that she first said she knew nothing
about the shooting and then told prac practically
tically practically the same story that Alberta
had "told on the witness stand.
Mr. J. L. Hillman testified that he
went down the railroad from Wash Washington
ington Washington to May streets Sunday night
about 7:30 to 8 o'clock and then turn turned
ed turned east across the pond on the fill on
May street. When he was on the fill
a man stepped out of the bushes and
grabbed him by the right arm and ask asked
ed asked him if he was the "
who had thrown a rock at him. Mr.
Hillman said that he did not know the
man and that it was not Arthur Mar Martin,
tin, Martin, because he knew Arthur well and
had known him six or seven years,
Oscar Ellis testified that Lumb
gave him the letter that was before
the court and requested that he deliver
it to Alberta. He showed it to Mi.
Chalker and then tried to deliver it to
Alberta but she refused to take it. Mr.
Green asked Oscar what he was doing
in the jail. Oscar replied that he was
doing ninety days.
Mr. Horne testified that he was at
the S. A. L. water tank the night of
the murder between 8 and 8:30 and
that he saw Arthur Martin there witn
another boy he did not know. He also
saw the two negro girls there. He

Moscow. (By Mail to the Associ Associated
ated Associated Press). Production charges in
many Russian factories have become
so high, that the Soviet government
would now find it cheaper to import
certain manufactured articles than to
make them at home.
For example, it is said that harvest harvester
er harvester machines can be purchased and
transported from Germany, or even
from America, to Russia for much
less than the cost of producting them
ia the plant of the International Har Harvester
vester Harvester company near Moscow.
This American factory, one of the
few industries in Russia that was not
nationalized by the Bolsheviki, is one
of the most efficient in the countryf
but its production costs per machine
manufactured are almost twice those
of the German and American plants
of the company. This is chiefly due
to the high prices of raw material, but
the unusual Russian labor laws also
are an important factor.
For example a workman whose
wife is expecting a child is paid 25
per cent additional salary for nine
months, and in the month when the
child is born receives still another full
month's pay. If the workman is sup supporting
porting supporting a sister or a mother or any
other woman in on interesting condi condition,
tion, condition, the same rule applies, while a
feminine employe receives even more
liberal treatment, amounting to seven
f ull months extra pay.
The average daily pay of a Rus Russian
sian Russian workman is about $1 exclusive of
extras, but it has been estimated that
five Russians, who work under less ef efficient
