FALSE IMPRESSION CORRECTED
Ocala, Fla., July 7, 1917.
Editor Star: The article appearing
recently in the New York Daily Times
which was reproduced in yesterday's
issue of the Star is capable of creat creating
ing creating the false impression that I have
given up my work here in Ocala and
followed a few of my members to the
North for the purpose of forming a
church there.
I beg of you the kindness to allow
me to state that I am not in New
York looking after those who have
recently gone to that section, but am
here in Ocala faithfully looking after
thos.e who have remained at home, j
The fact is, that I have just return returned

the North, where I have been engag engaged

people, and while I am frank to ad admit

interesting one, and the trip furnish furnished
ed furnished me by friends was in many re respects
spects respects an enjoyable one, that I went
with a return trip ticket and I re returned
turned returned before it expired.
After spending several weeks in
anoaround Washington, Baltimore,
Chester, Philadelphia and New York
studying closely the conditions among
my people, 1 have returned with a
firm persuasion that the South is by
far the better place for the negro, and
that it is only a question of time when
the majority of those who have gone
to live in the North will return to live
in the South, and that those of us
who remain at home will be the better
off for having remained.
It's true enough that there are
many conditions in the South which
we wish were different. In many sec sections
tions sections there is hatred and race pre prejudice
judice prejudice which work a hardship upon
us as a race, but we deceive ourselves
and do ourwhite friends at the South
a serious injustice when we would
make believe that there is no race
prejudice in the North.
As to the big negro migration ser service
vice service held in New York last Sunday, I
was not present and did not know that
I had been referred to by any of the
speakers until next day. The speaker
who remarked that my church at
Ocala had been so depleted that I had
given up my work in" Florida and
followed my members to New York
and was busily re-establishing my
church, probably did not know my
mission to the city. It is a fact, how however,

about a dozen persons (not families)

Thanking you for this kindness, I
close by saying that I am very thor thoroughly
oughly thoroughly convinced that the negro
preacher who remains here in the
South with his people laboring to
bring about a better understanding
between his people and our Southern
white neighbors, and in teaching and
helping them to become loyal and
useful citizens, renders to his race a
much greater service than the one
who follows him north. Let the col colored

A TERRIBLE OCCURRENCE
Accidental Discharge of a Gun Cost
LaGrange Sistrunk His Life
The people of Ocala were dread
fully shocked this morning to hear
that Mr. LaGrange Sistrunk, while
cleaning a gun, had shot himself, and
two or three hours later were -deeply
grieved to learn that the wound had
proven fatal.
Mr. Sistrunk, who belongs to the
navy, had been home for ten days on
furlough, and intended to leave for
Pensacola, to resume his duties today.
He had arisen early and it is suppos supposed,

order, began cleaning his guns. He
had a shotgun and a rifle. The fir firmer,

when he picked up the rifle v it went
off, and the bullet went thru his "body
below his heart. Tljere is no explan explanation
ation explanation of the accident, which have
happened in any one of several ways,
but the most probable is that he rais
ed the hammer of the gun and forgot
to lower it, and swinging the gun
around it struck something which
caused it to fire. It was utterly im
possible for him. to have reached the
trigger of the gun in the position it
was in.
The unfortunate young man fell to
the floor and was found there
by the old colored woman who was a
servant in the family and who was
the only person in the house at that
time. She called, for help and friends
rushed in from .'the nearby homes. A
physician was hastily summoned and
he was taken to the hospital, but he
bled internally and died about two
hours after the accident.
The young man was all alone at the
timeof the accident! His father, Mr.
S. T. Sistrunk, the only other mem member
ber member of the family at home, was down
town in his office. LaGrange was
able to speak only once or twice after
he was shot. He told the old woman
who found him that he had accidental
ly shot himself.
LaGrange Sistrunk was one of the
most popular boys in Ocala. He was
the only son and eldest child of Mr.
and Mrs. S. T. Sistrunk. He was
about twenty years old. Two years
ago, he enlisted as a cadet in the navy
and spent several months in training
camps and on shipboard. Not expect

at home, he "bought out" and return returned
ed returned to Ocala. As soon as war between
this country and Germany began, he
notified the department he was ready
for service, tho' he was not liable for
a year or more yet. He went to Pen Pensacola
sacola Pensacola a few weeks ago, stood and
passed examination, and had been
promised a berth on board a battle battleship,
ship, battleship, it being his special ambition to
serve in a guncrew. He came home
for a brief vacation, which he most
intensely enjoyed with his friends.
Only Wednesday he had one of the
honored places in the fourth of July
parade. He was a boy of. splendid
character, the dear and honored friend
of all who knew him, and hard it is
indeed for those who knew his young
life full of promise to realize that he

train to tell us goodbye.

So many of our people know or
have heard of "Uncle Joe Dixon,"
that they will find the following from
the Lakeland Telegram of interest:
"Uncle Joe" Dixon, for several
years with the Evening Telegram and
well known to Lakeland people and to
the state press as one of the best edi

torial writers in the country, is Flor Florida
ida Florida bound from his annual pilgrimage
to the great state of Texas, where, as
is his annual custom, he has been re renewing
newing renewing his youth in the heart of na

ture. The following beautiful human-

interest story, with Uncle Joe as the

central figure, appeared on the edi

torial page of the Montgomery Ad

vertiser last Sunday, and will be read
with interest by Uncle Joe's host of
friends.

"l was a stranger, and ye took me

in; I was thirsty and ye gave me

drink."

There marched into the city of

Montgomery yesterday a patriarch,

who had walked most of the distance
between a point in Texas and Mont

gomery on an annual hike which he

takes for his health and pleasure. His
home is in an adjoining state, whither

he is bound to resume his labors for

which he is so well fitted by three
months of out-door roughing. He is
72 years of age, is slightly stooped

now, wears the beard of an Abraham
and the smile of a boy. He believes
in humanity, and while in Montgom Montgomery
ery Montgomery he told a story to illustrate the
basis for this belief. The story should
be-set down here.

A few days ago this genial wander

er drew up at an abandoned shack in

the far interior of a North Alabama
county. Rain threatened to overtake

him, so he prepared to rest till the
cloud passed. Soon he heard voices

a few yards away. In a bottom at
the foot of a little mountain he saw
a one-room house where children were

playing and listening to a scolding

from their tired mother. It was oc

cupied by a woman, her children and
her sister. In a few moments the
sister came to the patriarch and ac accosted
costed accosted him. What a beauty. Her
Titian hair fell loosely, gracefully
over her shoulders. Her soft brown
eyes looked gently upon him out of a
background of rosy, soft cheeks. She
was straight and lithe. She was bare barefooted.
footed. barefooted. Her mouth moved nervously
to conceal at the same time chewing a
small quid of tobacco.
"Stranger," said' she, Whar be ye
goin'?"
"On my way to Montgomery,
ma'am, but the rain is delaying me.
I shall be away shortly, however," he
said.
"They ain't no train now."
"I'm walking."
r'Whut! Walkin' t' Mon'gom'ry?"
She was amazed. Then she returned

to the house, procured an old quilt

and brought it to the stranger.

"Mister, ef you won't be insulted or
nothin' I'll offer ye this here quilt fur
t' sleep on,", she saicU "Ye cain't

walk outen here. They're a long tun tunnel
nel tunnel down th' road. It's night. Th

soldiers air at th' bridge an'. they'd
shoot ye fur a spy or somethin'. Ye
must stay here." He accepted the

quilt with thanks.

The next morning the girl came to

him again.

"Mister, we air pow'ful pore we

hain't got nothin' hardly but whut we

got we'll divide. We wan't ye to eat

breakfast with us, ef ye kin make out

with our grub."

He went into a palatable breakfast.
When the meal hour was nearing an

end. the stranger observed in the

girl's hand a knotted, worn handker

chief, with which she was fumbling.

She said, addressing him:

"Mister, me an' my sister have

been a-talkin' erbout ye an' a-thinkin'

erbout ye, an' we think yer too old
fur t' walk t' Mon-gom'ry. Take some

o' this money an' ride. I'll wave th'

train down an' ye kin git on." The
stranger had only a dime and was

weary and old. He hesitated long be before
fore before accepting the proffered gift.

They insisted earnestly and he ac

cepted one of the five dollars in worn
greenbacks. The girls waved the train
shortly. Before bidding her farewell
he said to her: "Young woman, are

you this good to all strangers?'

"Mister. I hain't never knowed

nothin but jest tV-be good."

With a tear in his eye the old "man
boarded his train, waved to her and
moved away. When he reaches his

home he will send her $5 for the $1
which she thinks she has given him.

His faith in mankind is strong.

My boy born in the pride of love's
sweet thoughts;
My boy bred in the love of purest
hearts.
Long have most glorious hopes been
mine,
But now. America, he is all thine!

My heart is xtrembling lest thou
shouldst take him now!
I bore him and I kissed his infant

brow

And nourished him to give him

strensrth to walk:

And taught his baby lips to lisp and

talk:

Canst thou not wait? he seems as

such a child

How can he fight his manners are

so mud?

I trained his hands to do no one an

ill

Thinkst thou that he can ever learn

to kill?

My boy he seems as but a tender
vouth

America, I taught him God and Truth;

If thou must have, I give him all tc

thee!

He's brave I'm brave, and yet O

woe is me

That something in my breast still

holds him fast:

'Tis Mother love a tie that's made

to last!

Tho thou wouldst take him far across
the sea
Thou canst not take this mother love
from me;
Thou hast his Manhood in its perfect
flower
My boy your Man, will serve thee in
this hour.
Thou canst not know the anguish in
my heart
Though brave I am, I fear the hour to
part.
America, I give him up to thee!
Flesh of my flesh heart of my heart
is he!
And he shall leave mine arms to be a
Man
To fight for thee and do the best he
can.
Deep in his eyes there is incipient
fire,
And in his heart ennobling thoughts
inspire;
And I, his mother, understand them
all
He hears he heeds, and answers to
thy call! v
So short a while upon my breast he
lay;
I rocked and crooned and sang the day
away,
But now he hears the luring of thy
voice,
And I, his mother, have no other
choice
Than give him up to thee with all my
heart
God grant that he may do a noble
part;
I surrender him, America, to thee
My babe my boy thy Soldier Mar
to be!

jThe cares we know, and those that
I give no warning;

Folks need a heap of loving at the

In the battle lull, the moment
snatched from strife
Half-way between the waking and the
croon-time,
While bickering and worriment are
rife.
Folks hunger so for loving at the

When wearily they take them home
to rest
At slumber-song and turning-out-the-light

Of all the times for loving, that's

Folks want a lot of loving every min minute

Till life's end, from the moment they

SENIOR EPWORTH
LEAGUE NOTES

Let me live in a house by the side of
the road,
Where the race of men er K-c-
The men who are good, and the men
who are bad,
As good or as bad as I.
I would not sit in the scorner's seat
Nor heed the cynic's ban;
Let me live in a house by the side of
the road
And be a friend to man.
Alice Gordon Wynn.
This world is quite a roomy place,
Whose joys we all should share;
But had I friends to fill the space
I'd not have one to spare.
Elsie Malone McCollum.
The Senior Epworth League has ap appointed
pointed appointed the third Monday in each
month as the set time for the regular
monthly council meeting, and the third
Thursday in every third month for the
quarterly business meeting.
Mr. and Mrs. Sam Fraser have
joined the St. Petersburg league.
Here's? where we enw Sf PefercVmor
Efficient Leaguer Carroll Fraser
has his hands full. He has the first
department of the Ocala league in
charge and the assistant editorship
of the state league. Looks like a no no-pay
pay no-pay job about the size of Hoover's.
President Dexter Phillips has set
the goal of the Ocala league at 100
per cent. Most of the offices are in
active working order and in a short
time all of the offices will be active.
The present league membership is
41 and there is one Epworth Era to
every four members as is the require requirement
ment requirement for a standard Epworth League.
A Quiet Hour covenant will be or organized
ganized organized at once and covenant cards
will be on hand to be signed by the
leaguers joining the covenant. This
is a requirement for a standard Ep Epworth
worth Epworth League, and leaguers wiljind
the covenant to be helpful in the
great work of the league!
It is suggested that leaguers read
the little book, "Fundamental Doc Doctrines
trines Doctrines of Methodism," compiled by H.
H. Smith. This is a great little book
and is highly commended by Bishop
Lamberth. A devotional meeting or
two devoted to the study of this val valuable
uable valuable pamphlet would certainly be
worth while. Most leaguers have them
already, as Dr. Gross placed a number
in the hands of leaguers a short time
ago. They can be had for 10 cents
by addressing H. H. Smith, Ford Va.
This is the end of the first week of
the membership campaign; only four
more weeks remain. The captains
should urge their sides to the front
and make good weekly returns. All
leaguers who have not received their
pins should see their captains. The
campaign is progressing nicely and
each side ought to have a good score
by Sunday.
"Can't you tell me where 111 find
gold?"
Said the tender youth to the miner
old.
"They say the country in gold does
abound,
Yet I searched for days, and I've no
trace found."
"Here is a lot of rules, son, but none
seem to fit,
Gold's wherever you find it."
"Where can genius be found ? Is there
a rule?
Is it bred in the bone, or taught in the
school?
Shall I seek in a palace? Who knows
the turns?
Or in a cottage like the home of
Burns?"
"There's a lot of theories, son, but
none seem to fit.
Genius is wherever you find it."
William Hamilton Nelson.
The writer, Sam Hickel Jr., has
been appointed reporter, and Marshall
Bouvier has been elected vice presi president
dent president of the league.
The time for league devotional
meetings is 6:30, and if it must rain
Sunday, we suggest that the weather
prophet arrange his shower for some
other hour. We don't want leaguers
to look out about league time and say,
"Looks like it's going to rain; don't
think IH go." Maybe the nature of a
Methodist, tho, always afraid of wa
ter, with aversion to immersion, espe especially
cially especially now when you might be taken
for a U-boat and get your periscope
knocked off.

NATURE HOLDS BALANCE EVEN

Creatures That Prey, and Those That

Are Preyed Upon, Have Natural

However smart and awake to the

frequent dangers that may at any

time assail them, the creatures that

are preyed upon are often caught ; the
preying ones get them from time to
time, and If this were not so they
would increase beyond all bounds. It
Is true also that those that prey often
go hungry, and they, too, have enemies
or diseases, which later amount to the

same thing In the struggle for exist existence

nicely is nature balanced as a gen

eral thing between the killers and the
killed that If but an unusual Influence
enters In, as an additional number of
carnivorous creatures in any neighbor

hood, or the growing Tip of an addi additional
tional additional amount of cover, there will be a
falling off, on the one hand, or a con considerable
siderable considerable Increase, on the other, of
those animals that are preyed upon.
Thus is seen the influence, both
ways, of man's part in nature's com complicated
plicated complicated contest. The gunners and
trappers weigh heavily in overbalanc overbalancing
ing overbalancing the otherwise normal balance
against both flesh and vegetable eat eaters,

TOKYO STREETS A PUZZLE

Even Old Residents Are Said to Find

Tokyo Is made up of a group of small
towns which expanded until, like the
old lady's two teeth, they hit. It Is the
most conservative city in Japan, and Is
the one most lacking In unity of spirit.
Each district has its own market and

its own shops. Homes and stores are
mixed together in bewildering confu confusion,

hard to find their way about the

crooked streets.

Fire Loss in United States.
If one could Imagine all the build buildings
ings buildings destroyed, by fire in the United
States In a year arranged along one
highway, each building occupying a
lot 65 feet wide, the highway would
extend from New York to Chicago,
and the buildings would line It on
each side. Such Is the calculation of
the department of Interior. Further Furthermore,

desolation would pass in every thou thousand
sand thousand feet a ruin from which an in injured
jured injured person has been taken. At every
three-quarters of a mile he would en encounter
counter encounter the remains of a human be being
ing being who had been burned to death.
For years, lT is estimated, the
value of actual property annually
consumed by fire in this country
reaches $250,000,000, and another sum
of about like proportions Is spent for
the maintenance of fire departments,
waterworks, Insurance premiums, etc.,
