Washington, Nov. 14. A' senatorial
investigation of the alleged misuse of
money in the presidential campaign
was definitely announced by adminis-,
tr ation officials today. Preliminary
plans have been made.. A resolution
providing the machinery will be ready
for introduction when Congress meets
next month.
Reports concerning the money in
certain states have come to both dem democratic
ocratic democratic and republican headquarters,
and evidence is being collected. It is
planned to call those actually in
charge of campaign finances' before a
Senate committee and investigate the
details of their transactions. An in investigation

Another part of the ship which was
specially interesting was that which
was used as a receptacle for bombs.

the bombs had to do was to open this
window and press a button. The ma machinery
chinery machinery did the rest. There was room
for sixty bombs in this 'Zepp.'"
. The guns, or rather the places
where the guns, had been, was one of
the most interesting features. "One
was there, two there, two there and
another there," said the guide point point-in
in point-in gto the sides of the ship. "Another
was perched, up in the tail and two
were on top of the airship. There
were nine in all. The caliber of
some of them is greater than our
English machine guns."
. Small metal cylindrical tanks at
intervals along the ship contained
coiled ropes, which were used for
mooring purposes. When the ship
wasabout to come to anchor a lever
was pulled and all these ropes shot
to the ground simultaneously. By
this means the soldiers were able to
capture her quickly and guide her to
her shed. But that shed will never
see her again.

Thru the courtesy-of Miss Gamsby,
the efficient public librarian, the Star
has been shown an article about Flor Florida
ida Florida writen for Scribner's Magazine of
November, 1874, by Edward King.
The article gave the experiences of
Mr. King, who toured the South forty
odd years ago for Scribner's in much
the same fashion that Julian Street
toured it for Collier's at thi3 later
day. "".
The article gave the experiences of
Mr. King on a trip made presumably
the winter before, and a large portion
of it dealt with scenes familiar to
many of our people.
The first page of the article was il illustrated
lustrated illustrated with a cut of the little
steamer Marion, plowing its way up
the Oklawaha. Thi3 boat is remem
bered by some of our older folks. It
was smaller than the Hart boats now
in use not much bigger in fact than
one of Carmichael's daylight boats
and of course not one-third as swift.
The next illustration showed the
water front of Jacksonville forty
three years ago. It bears no resem resemblance
blance resemblance to the busy and handsome city
of today.
A companion picture to the little
. steamer Marion is one showing cars
in operation on the railroad between
Toccoi on the St. Johns and St. Au
gustine. This road fourteen miles in
length then carried its passengers on
cars drawn by mules. Said mules
were live steppers, too. They made
the trip of fourteen mile3 in about two
ine manager oi tni3 road was a
yankee who blended a keen sense of
humor with shrewdness. One day he
was approached by a wrathy visitor
from the north who kicked on the
fare two dollars. "Why," said the
tourist, "up north I can travel fifty
miles for two dollars." v
"And how long would it take you to
travel fifty miles up north?" asked
the railroad manager. :
"About two hours," said the tourist.
"Well, my dear sir," said the man
ager, in his most honeyed accents,
"you can ride on our road two hours
and more for two dollars. You get the
worth of your money here, the same
as there."
- The article tells of St. Augustine
before Flagler's millions rescued it
from picturesque decay.; There is a
pretty good description of Palatka, at
which place at that time ocean steam steamers
ers steamers were arriving, as they might ar arrive
rive arrive now if the people had more git
up and git. Palatka was in its hey hey-.
. hey-. dey then, and all the great orange
groves which are yet among the chief
glories of Putnam county were com coming
ing coming into full bearing.
The description of the Oklawaha
trip shows that there is no material
difference in the "Marion" of those
days and the Hart boats of today. The
traveler left Palatka, on the Marion,
in the early eyrDg, just after the
arrival of the steamer from Charles Charleston
ton Charleston there was no railroad then ana
voyaged up the broad expanse of the
St. Johns. The evening wore away
with the boat paddling at four miles
an hour against the current, and when
the traveler went to sleep the vessel
was still in the big river. When morn morning
ing morning came the traveler found the boat
squirming around the bends of the
Oklawaha and between meals sat on
the deck and watched the sure but
laxy progress of the vessel all day.
Trees and alligators were in greater
profusion, but the scenery was other otherwise
wise otherwise much the same as it is today.
The article showed, however, that
in one way this section has retrograd
ed, for it said that steamers ran con
stantly up the Oklawaha thru Lakes
Griffin, Eustis, Harris and Dora to
Okahumkee. There was a semi semi-weekly
weekly semi-weekly line of boats, and while ev everything
erything everything was slower then, it was evi evidently
dently evidently more reasonable.
The writer went on up the St.
Johns, and across to the Indian river
the present great development of
vhich he prophesied. A carpet-bag
government was then in power, and
although a northern man he did not
seem to be favorably impressed by it.
The one drawback to the merits of
'the article was that Mr. King, while
his writings showed that he did not
come in contact with the country peo people
ple people of Florida to any great extent,
yet sized them up as ignorant, vicious
and lazy. That was the prevailing
opinion in the north at the time, and
visitors who viewed the state from
the verandas of hotels and decks of
steamers seldom made any attempt to
change it.

woke up and it looked for a while
like it was going to do its duty by the
people. Then came the railroad men
with their usual bunch of smooth
talk and promises they had no inten
tion of keeping. They greatly ex
tolled the effectiveness of their sys
tem in other towns of sending flag
men ahead of the trains at crossings
and said they would put their system
in effect in Ocala if the council would
not require them to put in gates. The
council accepted the promise it's
strange how ready an Ocala council
is to accept a railroad s promise
and did nothing, and the railreads did
Sunday, at 4:10 p.'m., a Star re
porter stood at the Exposition street
crossing and watch in hand waited
for the northbound Seaboard' limited
to come in. It was on time as usual,
and from the instant it came in sight
nearly a mile away until it crossed
the street was just 73 seconds. It
came over the Dunnellon road cross
ing almost at full. speed and did not
begin to slack up until it was about
250 yards of Exposition street. It
crossed that street at a rate of at
least ten miles an hour, maybe more
than that. As everybody knows who
is familiar with that crossing, no one
can see a train there until it is al
most at the street. Had an auto or
wagon appeared on the crossing, the
train, could not possibly have been
stopped until it had gone many yards
beyond the street.
And so it goes oh from year to .year
, When it comes to a railroad, the
mayor and city council of Ocala have
not the bravery and public spirit to
protect their friends, perhaps their
relatives, from a not only impending
but present danger. They accept the
ppromises of the railroad men, when
they know by experience that there is
never any intention of making the
promises good.
Some one of these days, there wil
be a fearful tragedy on one of the
crossings one or more human beings
will be mangled and murdered, and
the city government of Ocala will be
directly to blame. It's no use to
blame the railroads. Everybody knows
they will impose on the people if they
have a chance. The blame, is with the
councilmen, whose duty it is, and who
have the power, to protect the people,
and who lack the nerve to do it.

The following sermon was preached
by Dr. J. M. Gross at the Methodist
church Sunday morning. The story
of the good Samaritan formed the
basis for the theme.
It is about twenty-one miles from
Jerusalem to Jericho. The road is
through a wild, rugged, rocky coun
try. From time immemorial the
country has Been infested with rob
bers, thieves and murderers. So many
robberies and murders have been
committed on this road as to bring
upon it the name, "The Way of
Blood." : 'Cv,:-
This man who was robbed and beat
en and left half dead was, very prob probably,
ably, probably, a Jew peddler, for in those "days
many were" engaged in that business.
The priest and the Levite were both
official members of the church. Very
likely they were returning to their
homes in Jericho from Jerusalem,
where they had been attending to
their official duties in the temple.
When they came to where the man
was, who had been robbed and beaten
and left half dead, the priest passed
by on the other side. The Levite
came and looked upon the poor man
and passed on.
Possibly the priest and the Levite
tried to quiet their conscience by say
ing, we have performed pur official
duties in the Temple. Our religious
obligations extend no farther than our
official duties. Even these might
have been performed mechanically-
without true love or the spirit of true
worship. Mere formalism or official
ceremonialism is dead and useless un
less prompted by the spirit of love and
true worship. '
The Samaritan, who was of a dif different
ferent different nationality and despised by
the Jews, came along. Seeing the sad
plight of the poor man, he did nol
stop to ask of what nationality he
was but proceeded at once to mani
fest the spirit of brotherhood and
genuine philanthropy. True philan philanthropy
thropy philanthropy always finds a place to express
itself. This Samaritan seems to
have been a poor man for he only
gave a small amount, but told the
inn keeper to take care of the man
and, if more money were needed, he
would pay it. We see the spirit of
sacrifice manifested by the Samari
tan. Possibly he gave all that he
had. It is the spirit in which the of
fering is made that sanctifies the 'of 'offering
fering 'offering and makes it a blessing to the
one making the offering.
Some Practical Lessons for All
First, true Christianity and the
church stand for the salvation of the
whole man. "Take care of him." Take
care of the body. It is said that- 75
per cent of the children in school to today
day today have defective bodies. Just as
the man who had fallen among thieves
and was beaten needed bodily care so
we ned to look after the bodies of the
children What a glorious opportunity
the church has to do missionary work
for the bodies of people. Settlement
and slum work in providing better
homes, better food and better cloth
ing, for the needy. What a great op
portunity for the Woman's Mission
ary Society. Take care of the mind,
too. How are parents caring for the
minds of their children? What do
they read? What do they see? Where
do they go ? The proper training of
children can not with safety be com
mitted altogether to the public school.
. m m m ' " a
weitner can parents sniric responsi
bility Jby saying, my children go to
Sunday school. Good and great as
this work is it can not take the place
of home training. Again, take care
of the soul. This is the weak place
in the home and in the church, and in
society. Many have a right to say
today, "No man careth for my soul."
The salvation of the soul is the ulti

Second. Do not be deterred from
duty by asking the question, Is he
worthy? Is he of my nationality? Is
he of my caste in society? The Sam Samaritan
aritan Samaritan asked no such questions. The
man needed help; that was enough.
Millions of our fellow-beings have
fallen among the thieves of sin and
have been beaten and robbed of their
moral manhood and womanhood.
They need religious instruction and
spiritual help. To give this help may
require great sacrifice on the part of
some. Local pride must be sacrificed
and sometimes much self-denial must
be practiced in order to be able to
take care of others. The- Christly
missionary spirit comes in here. Yea,
we hear our Lord saying, "Go ye into
all the world, and preach the gospel
to tvery creature." This includes all
classes and all nationalities of what
soever class, kind or color.

At the Presbyterian Church
Mr. Chris Matheson of Gainesville
occupied the pulpit Sunday, the Rev.
Herndon being away in Tennessee.
Mr. Matheson is always given a
hearty welcome in Ocala. He deliver delivered
ed delivered two splendid sermons to two ap
preciative congregations. The morn
ing sermon was based upon the 15th
chapter of Luke: The story of the lost
and found sheep, the lost and found
coin, and the lost and found boy. He
dwelt upon the proneness of human
nature to wander from God and the
causes that; aid in this wandering.
Then he made a strong appeal for
those who have wandered to return to
God and active service. He also laid
it upon the hearts of all Christians
as a first duty to seek for the lost
and bring them to Christ. The sheep
and the coin were sought for until
they were found, so ought the Chris
tian to seek for the lost and the wan
dering. The night sermon was from
the text: "Lord, is it I?" This was
the question of Judas to Jesus when
the Master told the disciples that one
of their number would betray him.
The theme of this sermon was: How
we betray Him today.
At the Baptist Church
Mr. Stephens spoke Sunday morn
ing on Christian Unworldliness from
the text: "I pray not that thou
shouldst take them from the world,
but thou shouldst keep them from the
evil one." Jno. 17:15. The speaker
reminded his hearers that worldliness
in Christians is constantly brought to
the attention of the public. He would
not lay any less stress on this world
liness but he would emphasize more
the unworldliness of the Christian.
The unworldly is concerned not so
much about the present as eternity;
not so much about here as hereafter;
not so much about "eat, drink and be
merry for tomorrow ye die" as "1
that believeth hath everlasting life."
Then he emphasized "from this part
of the prayer of Jesus that Jesus was
riot ready for the disciples to be taken
from the world, not even to be with
him in glory. He had a great work
for them to do on the earth. He
quoted: "Many good people are spar
ed to live because they can ill be
spared to die." Again, He did not
want them to retire to Monastic se
elusion simply to help them as indi
viduals to overcome sin and tempta-
uon in tneir own lives, mere was
too much to be done by them in the
busy places of the world in helping
others to overcome. He went about
doing good, so were they to do. The
prayer of Jesus on their behalf was
"that thou shouldst keep them from
the wicked one." The test of manhood
is right living. This right living is
to be the midst of the peoples, cir
cumstances and environments or a
busy world. In the hurly-burly of the
crowded street, or in the quietude of
the desert. The uncontaminated life
in the midst of contaminating influ
ence; the unworldly life in the midst
of worldliness was sought for in this
discussion. 1

What Becomes of Most of the Bright
Lights of High School Days?
Obscurity Takes Many in
Later Life.
, What has become of Blanchard
Ripley James? Long ago he was a
high school classmate of mine out in
Ohio, and now he is lost. The other
day I found that they were advertis advertising
ing advertising for his postofflce address in the
village paper back home. It seems
that for years and years he clerked in
a store in Grand Rapids, after which
he tightened up his belt strap and
made a dive into the great West
with what success nobody knows,
says "Sid" in The American Magazine.
-"Well, sir, I could not believe it.

Why, he was the boy we voted as the
one among us with the brightest fu future.

ed predicted for him. He looked like Daniel
Webster, kept his hair brushed, beat
us all at our studies, took more inter interest
est interest in school than anybody and,
above all, how he could wag his jaw?
He was the best speaker of pieces
that ever walked up the steps of the
rostrum of the Second Congregational
church. On graduation night he was
our prize exhibit. The rest of us
looked foolish beside him, and felt
foolish. Our only pride lay in the fact
that for. the moment our names were
printed on the program with his and
we were going to receive just as good
an imitation sheepskin diploma as he.
But of course we expected that on
the morning after graduation the gulf
between him and us would begin to
widen, and would increase until he
would be talking on the floor ot the
United States senate, and we, with
our wives and children, would be sit

our membership in the "I-Knew-Him-When"
But the whole thing has shifted.

come through with the wallop.
What is the answer? The answer
is that youth is always a mystery. You
simply cannot pick winners that early:
You cannot distinguish between the
able and the stupid, the slippery and
the honest, the playful and the vicious,
the imitative and the original, the
weak and the Rtrong, the aggressive
and the servile, the ambitious and the
complacent. -Youth is a period of un uncertainty

happy over their children. Nobody
knows what great surprise is in store.
The slowest-appearing child in the
family may (may, mind you) turn out
to be a howling genius. At any rate,
the neighbors had best not point the
finger of scorn not yet, not yet! For
if they do they may have to take it
And so, clear up to the commence
ment night, and for some time after,
fathers and mothers can claim great
things for every child in the family
and nobody will dare dispute them. Of
course the world will finally call for
a show-down, but when it does those
who might be interested la the result
are themselves lost, or scattered so
far that it would take an explorer to
find them and carry them the-news.
Some boys die in youth thus pre
serving forever the mystery as to
their hidden talents. Usually it is
said of such that they were bright and
remarkable, with a great future- be before
fore before them. We all worship success
even going so far as to worship it
where it does not exist.

Probable That a Part of the Surplus

For every man that has fallen in the

has lost a sweetheart or a husband.
The final figures which death, the

question of finding husbands for the

that must be seriously met and solved.
The great percentage of our own
women live in the East. And in the

hundreds of thousands of ranch own owners,

But suppose a shipload of fascinat fascinating

town, where thousands of lonely men
live in barren boarding houses, or keep

Would the cowboys stampede and

There's Theme for Poet or Moralist
In Strange Guatemala Indian
Legend Faith In God

Among the Indians of Guatemala, ac according
cording according to the Christian Herald, who
possess many remarkable traditions, a
legend has been reserved which might
form a theme for the poet or the mor moralist.

lies a lake, placid and beautiful in its
solitude a huge, glittering, gold

believe It to be a mass of priceless
jewels; others aver that it is a charm
which is capable of curing all human
Ills. But the oldest and wisest of the
tribesmen wag their heads knowingly
and say that the hidden treasure,
which no human power has ever suc succeeded

that the great deity who directs the
lives of men has placed it beyond their
reach. All through the ages meh.have
sought for it but failed to grasp it, and
many have perished in the attempt.
It is only an old heathen legend, yet
it pictures the ceaseless search for

"Ever hear of Boston, brevity?"

telegram. It simply read, "Tonight."
. "That means," explained the clerk,
"that the signer will arrive on a cer certain
tain certain tram, that a porter Is to meet him,
that a room with bath on the eighth
floor, with southern exposure, with a
bath already drawn, is ta be in readiness.".":--'

"That's nothing "for brevity," remind reminded
ed reminded an assistant manager who stood
near. "We have a man from Boston
here who doesn't have to say a word
when he gives an order. When he is
about to go away, he catches the eye
of the head porter and holds up one
finger, and the head porter knows that
the Bostonian wants a ticket on the
five o'clock train, a seat In the second

the tremendous rate of speed at which
It rounded the sharp curves for which
that road is famous. He was a little
consoled, however by the calm
manner in which a fellow-passenger
across the aisle surveyed the whirl whirling
ing whirling landscape. Finally, unable to
control himself longer, the novelist
leaned across the swaying car and
inquired: "Say, don't you think this
is a bit reckless going so fast? What
if we'd meet another train around one
of these curves!" "No feah,5 suh!" as assured

a hot iron over it This coagulates the
albumen, and the paper must be torn

That is the essence of his talk. Make

his men on the road, sent another man
to vitalize him anew with enthusiasm.
He found the discouraged one "in the
dumps." He took him to a good show,
bought him a good dinner, shot a
game of pool with him. Joshed and
Jollied him, told him he was all right,

slap on the back and after a day or

The fellow had simply lost his punch

sales manager took the better course
