HIGHWAY ASSOCIATION MEET
IXG HELD AT ORLANDO
As regards Marion county, the
outstanding feature of the annual
meeting of the Central Florida High
way association, held in Orlando yes
terday, was the bringing out in the
various reports of the fact that this
county is very far behind in the move
ment toward ideal roads. Just as the
purer breeds are supplanting the
razor-backs, the permanent roadwavs
are fast taking the place of the tvne
that require constant repairing.
The attendance at the Orlando
meeting was slim, being about the
same as was had in Ocala. There was
no lack of enthusiasm, however, and
the reports of officers and committees
showed a vast amount of work ac
complished daring the first year of
the organization. L. P. Dickie, sec
retary of "the association, reported
that during the last three years $12,-
000,000 has been spent in 28 counties
in this state on good roads, and most
of this sum during the last vear.
There are now something like 3.000
miles of hard-surfaced highways in
Florida, and as a result of these high highways
ways highways Florida is obtaining more pub
licity than any state in the Union.
More money per capita, Mr. Dickie
reported, is being spent in this state.
He called attention to the fact that
the Central Florida Highway associa
tion had been instrumental in having
the Dixie Highway routed through
the central part of the state.
"I doubt very much if there is an
other state in the Union that can re report
port report such progress," said T. Ed. Bry
an, president, of the association, re
ferring to- th'e vast amount of e-ood
roads work done in Florida.
No action was taken on the resolu
tion to change the route of the Dixie
Highway wherever there was a fail
ure to carry out pledges. It was de decided
cided decided that the recent political cam
paign had prevented action in some
counties, and the resolution will be
taken up at the meeting of the asso association

"I am free. I have not yet become
sufficiently known to be sought after."
Stanelll, as yet scarcely twenty years
old, sang for the manager. -His voice
was a tenor, but none of hs notes were
high, and some of his lower ones were
almost down to baritone range. Hln Hlnton

something. Presently he said; C

The manager smiled. "Give me your
address," he said. "Sometimes singers
become irritable, and brain Irritation
usually results in throat irritation. I
may have occasion to suddenly put In
A week later Slgnor Stanelll received
a telephone message to call at the
opera house at once. "When he was
announced he, was admitted readily,
and ninton told him that his baritone
had quarreled with his contralto and
refused to sing with her. "The part
runs low," he added, "only in, one or
two places, and we can cut them out."
The new singer created a sensation.
Hla voice, Instead of being high pitch pitched
ed pitched for a baritone, was very low. Those
parts which the manager had suggest suggest-,
, suggest-, ed' cutting out were sung with vigor.
Hlnton was astonished.
"How in the "world "did you, ever get
such flexibility Into your voice?" he
asked jStanelli after the opera.
Stanelll looked confused and said he
It was not long after this that Hln Hlnton
ton Hlnton was again in trouble; this time for
a tenor. His principal, man in a pre pretended
tended pretended stabbing scene had really stuck
a knife into a rival for the favor of
not a woman, but the public." He sent
for Stanelll and asked hipx if he could
get his voice up to a pitch that would
enable him to take the part. Stanelll
'r said that he had sung the part with-
out experiencing any trouble. He was
told to be 1 on hand for it the same
- He made as pronounced a success as
Ta tenor as he had as a baritone. Only
V a portion of the audience had heard
him in his other role. These were
somewhat surprised. They did not
know what to think about a man being
both' tenor and baritone. The rest of
- the audience' supposed that Stanelll
was a regular tenor.
As for Hlnton, he could not believe
his own ears, ne knew very well
that the human voice has not so wide
a range as appeared in this case, and
he believed .that there was some im im-v
v im-v position being practiced upon him. If
not, then Stanelli 'was simply such a
wonder as the world had never seen
Hinton's company was in a constant
state of warfare. One night when
Stanelll was singing a baritone part in
I1 Trovatore" a quarrel occurred be between
tween between the tenor and the soprano-rthey
were singing lovers parts and the
lady slapped the tenor's face. He
Towed that he would not sing another
note with her, and'the manager could
not move him. Turning to Stanelli,
"Can you finish the part for him?":
I think I can."
"Well, if you can that will solve the
problem for this performance. I can
easily supply your place in the role you
have been singing."
Stanelll went to his dressing room to
change his costume, sending his valet
Luigi. for the dress now required.
Luigi took it to him, and in due time
Stanelli came forth robed for the trou troubadour's
badour's troubadour's part '',,
This success In singing two different
parts, requiring a tenor and baritone
voice, further puzzled ninton. After
the performance he called Stanelli into
his office and said to him: '
"Stanelll, I wish your voice was on
two different bodies. I would like to

CUNNING NEST BUILDERS.
Humming Birds' Homes Are Not Hid Hidden,
den, Hidden, Yet They Defy. Detection.
Even in those parts of tropical Amer America
ica America where, as in Colombia, humming
birds are vastly numerous, it is almost
Impossible for the most experienced
naturalist to find their nests, in this,
although as a rule they are not hidden
at all, the feathered builders relying
for concealment upon the likeness of
their tiny houses to the surroundings
amid which they are placed.4 A hum hummer's
mer's hummer's nest always corresponds exactly
In color with the branch to which It Is
attached. It may imitate a knot or
other excrescence. Thus the Calliope
humming bird of the. western United
States often builds on a dead pine
twig, either upon or near a cone of
similar size and hue.
Usually the nests of humming birds
are cup shaped or turban shaped, and
their material is always plant down.
Such down, resembling cotton wool,
but of more delicate fiber, is gathered
from the stems of ferns and other
plants.' This Is woven together with
spiders' webs Into a compact .mass.
Usually they ornament the outside of
the nest with small feathers or lichens
which they obtain by detaching them
from, the rocks where .these humble
plants grow. These theyj fasten with
cobwebs all over the exterior of their
tiny house., ....
When .the8e wee architects suspend
their nets from leaves or tendrils they
are always weighted for stability In
order that they may not be upset by
every passing breeze. For this pur pur-f
f pur-f pose the bottom is made very thick.
But the most remarkahle expedient is
that adopted by the hill stars, which
dwell far up near the snow line of the
Andes. They" weight the tiny suspend suspended
ed suspended house on the lighter side with a
pebble to give the t proper balance.
There is no question whatever that
this is done, and many of the nests of
such species preserved in collections
are found to contain pebbles. Rose L.

HE GOT STUCK IN THE MUD.
Then He Discovered the Magic Power
of the Water Jet. :
The water Jet has been usrd for so so-many
many so-many years in putting down and pull pulling
ing pulling piling that its discovery hus lonjr
since been lost sight of. It was used
during the civil war and for many
years previous by governnieut en-
gineers. V :"-
Tradition has it that the discoverer
of the advantages of the water .let wa
a government engineer and that his
discovery was made In the following
manner: It seems that along in r'ae
forties this engineer was building a
wharf and wa.i having unusual di!!i di!!i-calty
calty di!!i-calty in putting down his piling. One
day In wading around his boots 1h 1h-came

found it impossible to puIJ'em nnt.
There happened to he a hoe near bv.
and one of the men handed It to the
officer, the idea; being that he would
wash the mud away from his boots.
The water Awas turned on. and tbe ofl ofl-,eer
,eer ofl-,eer applied a stream to h'j feet.
To his surprise he sank deeper. Ilt
tried it again and went down still far farther

in up to his waist and "still ;-olng down down-Astonished
Astonished down-Astonished by his discovery, he con continued
tinued continued to apply the stream to his feet,
and he might be going down yet had
not. his .men come to the rescue and
pulled him out by means of a small
hand derrick. C j
Once on shore he began to think the
matter out,!? a stream, of water ap applied
plied applied to a man's feet will cause him to
sink deeper in. the mud why wouldn't
It have the '-same effect if applied to
the base of a pile? He tried It, and the
pile .which had obstinately refused to

and In that way, so runs the story, was
discovered the use of the water jet for
