Ocala Team Was Less Successful
Than Pals In Securing
- "State Aid-
Palatka's famous Pals made good
their boast yesterday afternoon when
they romped on Alvarez and took the
game from the locals by a 7 to 3 score.
The Wildcats went out into foreign
territory and secured the services of
AJvarez, a noted state league twirler,
but Al didn't shine very brightly yesterday-
He seemed amply able to
pitch when he wanted to but appeared
reluctant to put out too much of his
precious energy. In addition to letting
up nine hits and walking five he made
three errors. It would be hard for Al
to blame anyone but himself for, the
loss of the game yesterday.
The Pals also foraged in the state
league and brought home "Grunt"

aid" they we're considerably more suc successful

able in nearly every instance to

Ocala fans were sorry to see Eddie
Overstreet out of the game yesterday.
It would do Eddie's heart good to hear
the hundreds of inquiries concerning
him when he did not appear behind
the bat. When told that Eddie was
under the weather, overworked and
much in need of rest, they agreed but
every one of them expressed a desire
that Eddie would get rest enough yes yesterday

Camp McClellan, Ala., Aug. 22. A
large number of us Florida boys, along

Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louis Louisiana,

South Carolina have gathered here at
Camp McClellan for a month of active
military training in the citizens' mili military
tary military training camp. We arrived in
camp on July 27th, and were sent
"through the bill" right away. That
is, we were given physical examina examination,

and assigned to our tents. Some of
us felt a slight tinge of homesickness

By means of these camps a reserve

This tent life and drilling went
pretty hard with some of us at first
but we find that we are getting the
swing of real soldiers -now. We keep
our shoulders thrown back and walk
as erect as any of them, and after we
got over a few blisters and sore spots,
we have been having fine health. We
stay in the open air a whole lot, and
are given physical drill daily, which is
putting a chest on us. The govern
ment cares for us well when one of us
does get sick.
Can you imagine us boys making up
our bunks, sweeping the tent flooi,
peeling "spuds", and scrubbing the
kitchen floor? That's part of what
we have to do every day. I was put
on K. P. (kitchen police) pretty soou
after camp started and the first thing
the mess sergeant put me to doing
was washing dishes and scrubbing
pots and pans. A detail of eight men
from each company is put on K. P.
each day to wait on tables and care
for the kitchen.
We are doing guard duty too, just
as they did in the army during the
war. My company went on guard one
afternoon at 5 o'clock, after we had a
formal guard mount at 4:30, and we
stayed on until 5 o'clock the next,
afternoon. We sentries had to walk
posts for two hours and then we had
four hours off, after which we again
walked two hours, etc. It interfered
with our sleep a little, but fortunately
we had only one day of guard duty.

companies, goes on the rifle range

a trip to Florida via the Merchants &

in Florida they will also be given an

of interest in the state at the expense
of the Times. We know that the trip
will be immensely enjoyed by the for fortunate

CLEAR THE ROADS
. We reproduce the following from
Collier's Weekly, which is by no
means a capitalistic paper:
In the course of the railroad and
coal troubles, Samuel Gompers, presi president
dent president of the American Federation of
Labor, said in a newspaper letter:
"The first step toward righting
what is wrong is the establishment in
industry of a uniform cost-accounting
system. That will make possible the
scientific gathering of essential facts.
Second, public access to the facts i$
required. The .public cannot judge
rightly until it knows the facts not
part of the facts, but all of them.
Those are the first steps."
No, Mr. Gompers, no! Those steps
are important indeed. But they do
not come first. As regards coal and
railroading, the first step toward
peace is to give service. That is the
Strikes differ in kind as in degree.
If Jane gets in a tiff and goes home
to mother for a. while, Edward can
take his meals out while repenting of
his misdeeds. If Jack gets out of

two, he can make it up later. School
keeps" on. But if Jones and Robinson
lock their flivvers on the highway and
try to butt each other into the ditch,
the first thing is to clear the roaa.
Jones and Robinson may arbitrate,
quarrel, sue, get pinched, or do any anything

Public services are all roads of one
sort or another. They must be kept
clear. Would any labor leader try to

Most factories, stores, shops, mills
and metal mines can be closed for a
time without great loss. Such stop stoppages
pages stoppages are often part of the routine of
a business. Strikes are sometimes
labor's only way of getting better
treatment from selfish or ignorant
employers who otherwise will give no
heed to justice.
But strikes in our great services
are treacherous war on those who rely
on those services. This war is also
foolish. The great gains in railroad
wages, the great changes in railroad
rates, have been made in peace while
trains were running, and by law, not
by force. The same is true of coal.
The threat of force, of stopping the
service, never works justice, but gives

the weak less, and insures future trou trouble.

OF THE LIGHTNING I
(Toronto Mail and Empire)
The public has many illusions about
lightning, its coincidence and effects.
The way lightning acts is in reality
much different from what the average
person imagines. For instance, there
are superstitions against keeping in ";
the hand anything of steel, even a
penknife. You are told to keep away!
from windows or doors through which j
there is a draft. The iron in the wire ;
of a screen door is believed to attractj
lightning. The vicinity of the cook j
stove is forbidden, because it, being j
iron, would have a tendency to drawj
lightning. All these are idle fancies,!
generally speaking. There are a few
chances of being hit, but very few,
and these few chances consist in being
in close contact with an isolated build building
ing building or tree that offers the closest
electrical connection with the light lightning.
ning. lightning. It is said that of all the vivid light lightning
ning lightning flashes in summer storms, only
one per cent, strike the earth. The!
others are confined to the sky to
making contact with other clouds
The chance of being hit by a falling
brick or being bitten by a mad dog are
greater than being hit by lightning.
In the United States, about 500 per persons
sons persons a year are struck by lightning,
or about one in every two hundred
thousand. The ratio of suicides, ac accidental
cidental accidental deaths, railway fatalities,
drowning, deaths from heat and other
sources of mortality is much larger
from four to twenty times as much.
When lightning does strike the earth,
it takes the shortest path. Penknives,
screen doors or drafts do not have any
effect on the course of the bolt. There
is, of course, only one really safe
place, and that is a cellar or dugout
deep in the bowels of Mother Earth.
Being a ready conductor, the earth
immediately scatters lightning or any
other electrical current, and no one in
it would suffer any electrical shock.
The next safest place is in a build building
ing building with steel frames. The great
skyscrapers, for instance, they are
built on steel framework, are among
the safest of buildings, even though
they tower into the sky far over any
other buildings, "and offer the finest
target for a bolt of lightning. It
lightning does strike, as might happen,
it immediately takes to the steel
frame, and courses down to earth
without damage. As long as a quick
safe contact to earth is proivded there
is no danger to persons in or near the
building. If these buildings" were
struck, the people inside would never
know it, even though outsiders might
see the contact. The Eiffel Tower in
Paris has been hit many times, but
has never been damaged because it is
steel. When lightning takes the
shortest course a house on a hill is
much more in danger of being hit than
one in a hollow. A low house in a
valley is immune. Wood, stone, brick
and stucco houses are all equilly
liable to be struck, to be damaged,
because the material in them are poor
conductors, it heats the element and
shatters it. Then a fire starts if the
material is inflammable. The barh.
may be ripped off a tree by the sud sudden
den sudden expansion of air cells, or the cloth clothing
ing clothing or shoes ripped off a person in the
path of a bolt. Any upright object
is a better target than the air sur surrounding
rounding surrounding it. S. house, barn, tree or
other projection-from the earth's 'sur 'surface
face 'surface is a better conductor than so
much empty space. All buildings
with tall chimneys, steeples, or high
roofs are most susceptible, unless they
have steel frames.
The places of real danger are under
a solitary tree in the middle of a
field. Beneath a hanging lamp with
metal chains to the ceiling is danger dangerous.
ous. dangerous. To stand between two metal
objects, such as a stove and a kitchen
radiator, is also dangerous, because
lightning will jump more readily from
one to the other than go through con conductors

the 'average, however, one part of a
house is about as safe as another.

Climate Affects Civilization.
Marking on a map of the world, the
areas where climate was most favor favorable
able favorable to human effort, Professor I'lls I'lls-worth
worth I'lls-worth Huntington, of Yale university,
called them zones of climate energy.
Delving into history, he then plotted
a map of civilization, and found that
the two maps coincided. His con conclusion
clusion conclusion was that "climate has a great
influence on health,, and Its action on
civilization in this way probably Is
greater than its direct effect or than
the indirect results arising through
agriculture or food.''
Professor Huntington took the
records of pieceworkers n Pittsburgh
factories and students at West Point,
ajid Annapolis and found that both
physical and mental work varied in
harmony with the weather. He found
that the death rate also fluctuated
seasonably according to the weather.
He therefore concluded that no high
civilization is possible in the tropical
rejiions, .or where weather conditions
are adverse. No high accomplishment
was hekl possible where temperature
and humidity are uufavorable.

CHAPTER L-At Thornton FalrchlWa
death his son Robert learns there has
been a dark period In his father's life
which for almost thirty years has caused
him suffering. The secret is hinted at
in a document left by the elder Fair Fair-child,
child, Fair-child, which also informs Robert he is
sow owner of a mining claim In Colo Colorado,
rado, Colorado, and advising him to see Henry
Beamish, a lawyer.
CHAPTER II. Beamish tells Robert hja
claim, a silver mine. Is at Ohadi, thirty?
elgh miles from Denver. He also warns
him against a certain man, "Squint" Ro Rodaine,
daine, Rodaine, his father's enemy. Robert decides
to go to Ohadi.
CHAPTER III. On the road to Ohadi
from Denver Falrchild assists a girl, ap apparently

a tire on her auto. When she has left.,
the sheriff and a posse appear, in pur pursuit

Falrchild learns something of the mystery

"Sam took it back," he announced.

Falrchild joined him, then sobered.
It brought Rodaine but of the
bushes," he said. "Squint threatened
us after they'd hauled you down town
on the rail."
Harry winked jovially.
"Ain't it just what I expected? It's
better that wye than to 'ave 'im snoop snoop-in'

They chuckled together then ; it was
something to know that they had not
only forced Squint Rodaine to show
his enmity openly, but it was some
thing more to make him the Instru Instrument

Harry looked down the hole, stared
Intently, at nothing, then turned to the
"'Ere's the thing we've got to fix
up now. This 'ere chlv wheel's all

"What makes your face so red?"
Falrchild asked the question as the
be-mustached visage of Harry came
nearer to the carbide. Harry looked
''Mother 'Oward almost slapped it
off!" came his rueful answer. "For

and letting 'er think I got drownded.

Falrchild absently examined the en
gines and pumps, supplying water to
the radiators and filling an oil cup'
or two. Then he turned swiftly, voic
ing that which was uppermost In his
"When you were here before, Harry,
did you know a Judge Richmond?"
Teh. Harry pawed his mustache
and made a greasy, black mark on his
face. "But I don't think I want to
know im now."
" 'E's mixed up with the Rodaines."
"They own 'im that's all."
There was silence for a moment. It
had been something which Falrchild
had not expected. If the Rodaines
owned Judge "Richmond, how far did
that ownership extend? After a long
time, he forced himself to a statement.
"I know his daughter. She sold me
a ticket to a dance," Falrchild care carefully
fully carefully forgot the earlier meeting.
"Then we've happened to meet several
times after that. She said that her
father had told her about me it

"But what's caused the change?
Harry's intent gaze stopped him.
" Ow many times 'ave
"I haven't ever seen him."
"Tou won't if Mother 'Oward

- "Ow does anybody take advantage

"Judges is like anybody else when

That made-'er just a little kid, and

And she loves er father. If 'e don't
die pretty soon, youll see a wedding!"
"Tou mean ?
"Shell be Mrs. Maurice Rodaine.
She loves er father enough to do It
after 'er will's broken."
Again Robert Falrchild filled an oil
cup, again he tinkered about the
pomps. Then he straightened.
"How are we going to work this
mine?" he asked shortly. Harry stared
" 'Ow should I know? Tou own It I"
"I don't mean that way. We were

for both of us. But I was talkies
about something else ; are we going tc

"Suppose," answered Harry after s

"Good. But the pumping will last
through tomorrow night. Can you

"Sure. But why?"
"I want to go to that f'.ance!"
Harry whistled. Harry's big Hps
spread into a grin.
"And site's got brown eyes!" he
chortled to himself. "And she's got
brown 'air, and she's a wye about er.
"I Want to Go to That Dance!"
Oh She's got a wye about 'er And
I'll bet she's going with Maurice Ro Rodaine!

"Oh, shut up!" growled Falrchild,
but he grinned in schoolboy fashion
as he said It. Harry poured half a can
of oil upon the bearings of the chlv
wheel with almost loving tenderness.
"She's got a wye about 'er!" he
echoed. Falrchild suddenly frowned.
"Just what do you mean? That
she's In love with Rodaine and Just
'Ow should I know? But she's got
a wye about 'er!"
"Well," the firm chin of the other
man grew firmer, "It won't be hard
to find out I"
And the next night he started upon
his investigations. Nor did he stop to
consider that social events had been
few and far between for him, that his
dancing had progressed little farther
than the simple ability to move his
feet in unison to music Years of of office
fice office and home, home and office, had not
allowed Robert Falrchild the natural
advantages of the usual young man.
But he put that aside now; he was
going to that dance, and he was going
to stay there as long as the music
sounded, or rather as long as the
brown eyes, brown hair and laughing
lips of Anita Richmond were apparent
to him. What's more, he carried out
Again and again Fairchild's eyes
searched the crowds, the multicolored,
overdressed costumes of the women,
the old-fashioned affairs with which
many of the men had arrayed them themselves,

leather boots to frock suits and stove stovepipe
pipe stovepipe beaver hats. From one face to
another his gaze went on; then, he
turned abstractedly to the long Hoe
of tables, with their devotees of keno,
and bought a paddle.
From far away the drone of the call caller

Falrchild looked up to see the narrow narrow-eyed,

who was officiating at the wheel. He
