Contingencies.
The law of Florida provides that
Xhe several different county funds
shall have contingency account's, to
be drawn on if necessary to supply
any other accounts that may need it
and still be legal. For instance when
the 1916-1917 budget was made, one
account in the road fund was for feed
of mules. Corn was not worth more
than $1.00 per bushel and a reason
able estimate was made to feed mules
on basis of, corn at' say $7.00, and so
with account of feeding convicts. No
man could foresee that corn would go
to $2.00 a bushel, but when corn did
advance and meat advanced and
everything advanced the commission
ers could draw n the contingency ao
count for any account found short.
This contingency account is not
only legal, but expressly allowed by
law, and to omit a contingency ac
count would be plain folly. There is
nothing uncertain about any contin contingency
gency contingency account. Every dollar of it paid
out Is exactly like any other dollar
paid out and an exact account of it
Is kept in the form of plain, bills pas
sed on by the board in open session,
like all of our bills.
And right here I am 'going to say
that when Mr. Gray, as state auditor,
checked up the county officers after
the death of Mr. Graham he told me
that the clerk's accounts In all depart
ments were correct to a cent, ; and
that he had made no change what

BEATING THE U-BOAT
American Navy Operating Against
the Submarines with Marked
Effect
(Associated Press)
Washington, Aug. 31. American
naval forces are convoying merchant
craft across the Atlantic, it has been
disclosed officially at the navy de department,
partment, department, and examination of the re records
cords records show that the loss of convoyed
ships by submarines has averaged
less than one-half of one per cent.
- Details of the convoy system are
withheld. It was stated, however,
that American war vessels are regu regularly
larly regularly escorting fleets of British,
French or other allied merchantmen
across, the protection being supple supplemented
mented supplemented when the danger zone is
reached by the destroyers and "other
patrol craft.
American naval officers believe that
an effective system for checking the
submarine menace is being built up
gradually. Many devices and many -methods
enter into the task. Among
other things depth bombs are prov proving
ing proving effective. Official reports indicate
that American destroyers have ac accounted
counted accounted for several U-boats with
these weapons; No announcement of
such incidents will be made, however,
unless absolute proof is available.
No U-boat has been, .captured by
the Americans. It is the best judg
ment ot high officials, however, that
several have been sunk by Admiral
Sims' destroyers and they are confi confident,
dent, confident, more confident than ever be before,
fore, before, that the submarine menace will
be substantially abated as the num
ber of destroyers and other" craft
available for the work is increased.
Reports from London that the sub
marines are working farther at sea
than formerly were confirmed by the
navy department. It may be that
new boats of greater size and better
sea-keeping qualities lend to this ex-
tension of the zone of activities, but
it is regarded as more probable that
the increased and increasing vifHlanrv
of the anti-submarine forces is main
ly responsible.
The effect of the increasing patrol,
of the employment of airplanes and of
the addition of new devices to the
anti-submarine weapons, has been to
force the U-boats under water to a
greater and greater degree. Their
effectiveness is limited in proportion.
They cannot run down a merchant
ship of average speed if kept under
water. They can operate only against
ships that almost stumble upon them.
And all the time they are under water
they are consuming the stored power
of their storage batteries, decreasing
their range of underwater action and
compelling them to come up at night
and lie idle on. the surface while their
oil engines are used to re-charge their,
batteries.

Another of the good ideas of the
patriotic American women who are

working so hard to provide necessar necessaries
ies necessaries for our soldiers and sailors, is to
accumulate a "Treasure and Trinket

Fund," for the benefit of the yoxmg

men who are training for the avia

tion corps, which branch of the ser

vice is an entirely new one and conse

quently not so well provided for.

The idea is for the women and girls
to contribute their trinkets of erold

and silver, to be melted down at the

mint, and the proceeds to be used in

such important supplies as textbooks,

scientific magazines, binoculars, type typewriters,
writers, typewriters, proper clothine for flights

through cold air, pulmotors and hos

pitals in case of accident.
Every girl and woman has tucked
away in some old corner some bit of
discarded jewelry.. She has always
meant to have it mended, but has not
done so because someone has given
her a newer and more fashionable
trinket.
Others may have a bit of battered
old, plate, table silver no longer used,
some odd gift hoarded because of the
giver. And in nearly every, home
there is a thimble, some silver, some
gold. All these things are wanted
for the Treasure and Trinket fund.

Nothing that you have in the way of
i i

goia or suver scraps is too small to

help. Send everything,- anything,

you have that is made of gold and
silver that you do not want or need

old spoons, bracelets, brooches; use

less trinkets, chains, cigarette cases,

coins.

No broken bit is too small to be
sent to the mint. No niece of iewel-

ry,' whether antique or modern, is too
fine for the aviation sale which is to
be held in November. In everv home

there is something which can be
melted into ingots of gold and silver.
And when you have crotten them

together all the discarded treasures,

the baubles of youth, the eifts from

friends almost forgotten, the relics
of relatives dead and gone you will
begin to figure o the value of gold
and silver by the ounce, and you will
realize what these scraps of precious
metal can do for your country and its
fighting men. Wonderful possibili possibilities
ties possibilities in your littlie heap : of treasures

and trinkets! And! if each of our

readers : contributes just scraps of
silver and gold to this : fund, think
how it will grow!

Kemember, no1 money is asked for

the -Treasure and Trinket Fund. The

scraps of old jewelry and tableware

you send will be converted into mon money
ey money by reputable silversmiths.

The head of this movement is Mrs.

William Allen Bartlett, chairman of
the aviation committee of the Nation National
al National Special Aid Society, 259 Fifth ave avenue,

One of our brieht little Datriots.

Miss Annie Benton Fuller, observing

the movement, thought it would be an
excellent move to have a "Treasure

It is a worthy and nrettv idea, and

The little Greek island of Farm.

- It was not until the discovery by Sir Arthur Gerod, in 1848, that the blood of gouty patients contained
uric acid in an excessively large amount, that much l attention I was paid to this subject. Later scientific men
learned that in gout, also rheumatism, the kidneys do

not work properly to throw off the uric acid poison ;
consequently uric acid crystals are deposited in and
about the joints, in the muscles, where an inflam inflammation
mation inflammation is set up in the nearby tissues. j
Hague has said, that gout is rheumatism, and

rheumatism is gout. If uric acid is formed in excess

within the body it is passed on to the kidneys, which

act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such storage are in the
joints, muscle-sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,
est, weakest, and where also the alkalinity of the blood is lowest.
Consequently we must do everything to throw off this
uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. Flush I
the kidneys by drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded.
Eat less meat,; drink more water, and take ANURIC
(double or triple strength), after each meal and at
bed time for several weeks at a time and you will be
free from uric acid and the diseases that follow.
The urine is often cloudy, full of sediment;

MARION H. YOUNG
The Star sincerely regrets to learn
of the death of a young soldier, Mar Marion
ion Marion H. .Young, who died at Fort
Screven, Ga., .Aug. 1. He was the
youngest son of Mr. Wm. A. Young
of Fairfield, and was twenty years
old July N6th. Marion volunteered
into the hospital corps and entered
the service at Fort Screven, June 8.
Ten days later he was picked up on
the training reservation and carried
to the hospital. He was very sick,
having contracted pneumonia, and
died after suffering forty-two days.
His father went to the training camp
just a few days after Marion was
