, There is comparatively little, we are
glad to say, of this prejudice in Ocala.
Our town, in short, is abreast with
civilization. Consequently,, our people
do not realise the rank, bitterness with
which the contest is being waged in
other parts of the state. :
The experience of ages proves that
intolerance and cruelty grow upon
what they disseminate. A large fac faction

making a concerted move to deny
Catholics rights guaranteed them by
the constitution of the state andyna andyna-tion.

for governor announces that he will
interfere with some things that
Catholics hold sacred. Now, if we are
to go on, and try to interfere with a

he belongs to that church, we will
have gone clear back to the dark
ages, and will be doing what we ac accuse

years ago.
it is noticeable tnat tne people who
are most bitter against the Catholics
are those who have something to gain
by their bitterness, and that those
who most readily believe accusations
against them are people who know
very little about them. They swallow
the stories told by Catts and Billy Billy-parker,
parker, Billy-parker, without the slightest attempt
to investigate.

llis entire campaign nas been in
flagrant violation of the constitution,
federal and state: his utterances have
been made up .largely of calumnies
and scurrilous abuses hurled at the
people of a certain religious denomi
nation, and in the direction of Mr
Knott and his friends. His overflow
of venom, spite and spleen even in includes
cludes includes the high school girls. He de derides
rides derides the supreme court, denounces
its rulings and boldly bids defiance to
its mandates; add to this the further
declaration that he carries guns in his
grip, loaded, and greased for instant
action, convicts him of the essential
qualities of the outlaw and anarchist."
The yarn told by Candidate Catts,
to the effect that the school authori authorities
ties authorities of Pensacola, at the instigation
of the Catholics, prohibited singing
hymns and offering prayers in the
public schools of that city, and which
was proven a lie by a dispatch from
the city attorney of Pensacola to the
Palatka Times-Herald, was told by
Mr Catts in his first speech here dur during
ing during the campaign. The old Latin pro proverb
verb proverb says: "Falsus in uno, falsus in
omnibus." A funny thing about this
matter is that there has been such
regulations introduced in the schools
in some northern cities, but they were
aimed against Catholics and not
against Protestants. In. many dis districts
tricts districts of cities with large Catholic
populations, both teachers and pupils
being of that church the religious ex exercises,
ercises, exercises, at the opening of school were
naturally of a Catholic turn. This
aggrieved the Protestants and in
many schools in the big cities they
have had all religious observances cut
out. It is hardly necessary to remind
our people that in the schools of Mar Marion
ion Marion county 11 the hymns sung are
from Prote stant hymn books, the
Protestant Bible is exclusively used
and all prayers are offered by Protest Protestants,
ants, Protestants, and this is done without any op opposition
position opposition or comment from the Cath Catholics,
olics, Catholics, Jews and non-church members
who pay a large proportion of the
taxes that; keep up the schools. All
these people have got-along together
very well ever since we had any
schools, and will continue to do so un un-less
less un-less incendiaries like Catts succeed in
setting them against each other. ..
Amcng tne evidence offered by the
Cattites that' Knott had some of the
ballot boxes in Madison county stuffed
is the testimony of one Catts sup supporter
porter supporter who was an inspector of elec election,
tion, election, that after counting the votes he
put the ballots loosely and in disorder
back in the box, and that when he box
was opened ; for the recount the bal ballots
lots ballots ware laid neatly in order. Now,
we all know the reputation of the
good people of that part of Florida.
They are fine folks and not given to
sin, but they do not consider stuffing
ballot boxes a sin. -They are like the
pirate captain who kept a copy of the
ten commandmentsvith those against
murder and stealing marked but,
tacked up on his cabin wall. They are
not in least amateurs in the art of
manipulating ballots. If ; one o Mr.
Knott's friends had opened that box
and found the ballots -in disorder, he
would have "put them back just like
he found them. It is much more likely
that one of Catts' friends opened the
box and carefully arranged the tickets
in order to create the impression that
some adherent of the other side had
been tampering with them.

The House of Secret Agents.
JIM's heart beat so that the blood
in his throat seemed choking
him. His hands were cold and
wet, but steady There was no
light at all inside the doors before
which he had halted, but now lie had
come' to an office where some one was
working. There was the, barest sou lid
of movement and a low light. Some
closely shaded desk light probably

tried the doorknob. Finding the door
locked, he struck instantly with the
butt of the revolver, smashing a hole
through the glass.. He struck again,
smashing the hole larger, and thrust
his arm in, turneJ the knob on the
Inside, Jerked his arm out, kicked the
door open and sprang within and
crouched with revolver ready.
Between his first" smash of the glass
and before he made the hole larger
light had glowed through on his hand.
If he had not been sure of that he
now might have believed he had bro broken
ken broken into an empty room. It was ab absolutely
solutely absolutely black and silent. Curtains
pulled close, over the windows shut
out all but a feeble reflection of light
'from the street, and there was no
sound of any sort in the room or in
the building. The noise of footsteps
following up the stairs had ceased.
The man in the hall either had halted
at hearing .the attack on the door or
else vas creeping, as Jim himself had
crc-pt, silently down the corridor.
A flash of flame almost in his face face-so
so face-so close that the powder stung on his
cheeks and the fumes choked him
flungr him back off his balance.'- He
fired back that is, his, finger Jerked
on the trigger and. his revolver roared
after, the other, but the buliet couhl
have found no mark. He recovered
himself, crouched, fifed again blindly
or only in the general direction of tbe
flame which had burst, at him. The
flash of the other revolver spurted
again, but it did not stun him so much

shot something which bruised and
stupefied -him with its first shock, with
its next knocked him down, and with
its third a blank.
- He was lying face downward upon
some-isort of a leather, conch when he
became conscious again. .There was a
tremendous pain in his head, ; and
when be tried to move his hands he
discovered that they were tied to together
gether together and bound to Msbody. These
discoveries brought him sufficient
memory of the struggle and gave him
such realization of his present condi condition
tion condition that he made no move after the
first, which told him that he was se securely,
curely, securely, bound. -' He made no outcry,
and after his first look at the black
leather couch upon which he lay he
closed his eyes again and lay as inert inertly
ly inertly as possible, : T
The smell of strong tobacco, of the
sort smoked in a jipe, was the first
sensation which gave him knowledge
of his surroundings. The smoke was
.thicker at one moment than at an another

smoker war; then In the room. He was
sitting-r standing quite still, for,
though Jim listened intently, he heard
no sound but the puff at the pipe.- The
denseness of the smoke indicated that
the room was smnll. and as Jim, ven ventured

ceuirh he dis-overed that to be the
fact.- ; ;-;,., ;

Jim had supposed that he was a pris prisoner

house of the better sort.
The pipe smoker, who appeared to
be acting as a -guard, sat at the head
of the "couch so close that the smoke
from his lips blew hot against Jim's
cheek, but he was so placed that Jim
could not see him without moving,
Jim continued careful not to betray
consciousness, and the next minute he
was rewarded for his caution. A step
approached the door, and as the door
opened the smoker stood up. A man man-plainly

couch.
"He's not conscious yet?" he said

had ceased to smoke.

replied with deference.
The "sir" put hte hand upon. Jim's

(Associated Press)

Washington, Sept. 20. The British

tanKs," the armorea motor cars

used in recent assaults on German
trenches in northern France so suc

cessfully as to attract worldwide at

tention, were built for the most part

in Peoria, 111., as caterpillar tractors
designed many years before the war

began to meet some of the difficult

problems of modern farming. Except
for their armor, their machine guns

and their crews, thousands like them
are in use today in the United States,

in plowing, digging ditches and other

abor less spectacular than war.

M. M. Baker, vice president of the

Holt Manufacturing company, ex

plained here yesterday that machines
made by his company at its Peoria

plant had hurdled German trenches,

walked through forests and crawled

over shell craters in the' face of in intense
tense intense rifle and machine gun fire.

"We have sold about 1,000 cater

pillar tractors to the British govern

ment," said Mr. Baker. "We have

had nothing to do with putting armor

on them or placing machine guns, but

some of our mea at Aldershot, Eng

land, recently were notified that the

British government intended to
armor some of the tractors and use
them for work other" than the usual

towing of big guns.

i Germany Has Some
"Germany had some of these trac

tors 'before the war began, and al

though I do hot understand just how
it occurred T believe she may have

got others since then. We have sent

some to France and some to Russia.

So far as I know upon the recent ap

pearance of the armored cars the

tractors were used to tow big guns.

understand that Germany used

about forty of them in its work be before
fore before Liege early in the War and re recent
cent recent photographs show that the Brit

ish are using some of them for the

same purpose."

Mr. Baker said he did not know

how many of the 1,000 tractors sent
to England had been armored and

put in service as land battleshipsnoi
did he know what equipment the

British war, office had placed upon
cars to be used in this work.

"It is true," said Mr. Baker, "that

these tractors can go ahead over al

most anything. They' can straddle &
trench, go through a swamp, roll over
logs or climb through shell craters. It
looks ;,uncanny to see them crawl
along the ground, just like a huge
caterpillar..iIn a thick forest if they

encounter- trees they could not brush
out of their way, they could easily

uproot them and clear their own

path." : y

Mr. Baker said the tractors sent to
England weigh about 18,000 pounds

each, develop 120 horsepower and
are built of ,'' steel. The caterpillar

feature, he .explained, is of the ut utmost
most utmost .importance. Speaking broadly,

the tractor crawls on two belts, with

corrugated -surfaces, on either side of
the body. The corrugated surface is

on the ground. On the inside of the

belts, on each side of the body, are

two lines of steel rails making four
lines in all. These rails are in short
sections, jointed, and operate over a
cogged mechanism that actually lays

them down with tlieir belt attachment

as the tractor moves ahead and picks
them up again so that, the car runs

on its own self made tracks continu

ously. The short joints in the rails
make it easy to turn to the right or

left.

The body is supported by trucks
with five wheels, something like small
railroad trucks. : These wheels never

touch the ground, but run upon the
steel rails. In the ordinary tractor
about 'seven feet of belt and rails is

on the ground at one time.

Mr. Baker said that the machine
would bridge any trench that was not
wider than the length of track it laid
on the ground at one time. The "bow"
might hit the far side of the trench
far below the top, and the "stern"
would undoubtedly sink a little but
the tenacity of the tractor, he de declared,
clared, declared, would enable it to go ahead
and climb out.
The width of the truck used on the
machines sent to England, Mr. Baker
said, was 24 inches. He declared that
the ground pressure is about three
pounds per square inch where a 30 30-inch
inch 30-inch truck is used or Jess than that of
the foot of either man or' horse. He
suggested that the British authorities
probably had lengthened the track xn
the tractors used in trench work, giv giving
ing giving them even greater power to sur surmount
mount surmount obstacles.
"We've been making these tractors
for the British government for a long
time," said Mr. Bakerand have not
talked much about it."
Although Mr. Baker would not dis discuss
cuss discuss the matter, it was understood
the United States war department is
experimenting with armored tractors
somewhat like those in use in the
British battle line.
