The town will seem deserted when
we find we can look long in
direction and see not one of
khaki-clad forms anywhere.
We will miss their little marching
column, moving thru the streets to
drill twice a day. We will miss the
cheerful rhythm of their feet, as in
twos and threes and fours they tramp
ed by, for some of them were always
going somewhere or coming back. We
will miss their bunches at the street
corners, where with an art unknown
to civilians they could cluster by the

What mercy could be expected of the

short and to the point

them for a few days. You will pay

the bargain, and for months the city

ARMOR PIERCING SHELLS.
Thay Proved Thalr Superiority Over
the Qathmann Explosives.'
The late Louis Gathmann, the Inven Inventor,
tor, Inventor, who died at the age of seventy seventy-four
four seventy-four years, labored long and hard and
with zeal and enthusiasm to bring
about the development of the high ex
plosive shell which bore his name.
It was Mr. Gathmann's belief that it
was not necessary to carry the high
explosive shell through armor plate
and into the Interior of a shtpv but that
if a sufficient quantity were detonated
against the outside of a ship it would
be equally if not more destructive.
He secured from congress an appro appropriation
priation appropriation for an eighteen inch gun capa capable
ble capable of throwing a shell containing 000
pounds of guncotton. Our army and
navy officers held that the only effec effec-tive
tive effec-tive shell would be one of the armor
piercing type provided with a delayed
action fuse, which would burst the
shell back of the armor.
Both types were tested at Sandy
Hook about a score of years ago. The
armor piercing shell penetrated an
eleven inch plate and tore the backing
to pieces. The Gathmann shell burst
against the face of the plate, but failed
to do more than dent It in the earlier
rounds, finally cracking it in two in
the last round. The superiority of the
armor pierclug shell was thus estab established.

A NERVOUS WRECK
From Three Years' Suffering. Sayi
Cardui Blade Her Well.
Texas City, Tex. In an interesting
statement, Mrs. G. H. Schill, of this town,
says: '.'For three years I suffered untold
agony with myhead. I was unable to
do any of my work.
I just wanted to sleep all the time, for
that was the only ease I could get, when
I was asleep. I became a nervous wreck
just from the awful suffering with my
I was so nervous that the least noise
would make me jump out of my bed. I
had no energy, and was unable to do
anything. My son, a young boy, had to
do all my household duties.
I was not able to do anything until I
took Cardui. I took three bottles in all,
and it surely cured me of those awful
headaches.- That has been three years
ago, and I know the cure is permanent,
for I have never had any headache since
Nothing relieved me until I took Cardui.
It did wonders for me.'
Try Cardui for your troubles made
from medicinal ingredients recommended
in medical books as being of benefit in
female troubles, and 40 years of use has
provfnjthat the books are right. Begin
taking Cardui today. NC-134

CASE OF THE VOLUSIA
(Continued from First Page)
going would take at least fifteen
minutes of rapid walking. Our even evening
ing evening meal would taka at least thirty
minutes. We were then allowed
practically only one and one quarter
of an hour to prepare a defense
against charges previously unknown
to us. We could refute everyone of
them and present a clean sheet if
given time for preparation. We need needed
ed needed testimony in rebuttal which could
only be obtained in Volusia county,
270 miles away. We needed witnesses
in person at Tallahassee to prove the
utter baselessness of much that was
presented. Attorney Fish did not go
into the dining room, he went without
his jneal and locked himself up in his
room to cogitate over the memoranda
he had made during the proeress of,
the meeting at the capitol. When he
met us in the hotel lobby he said: "It
is utterly imposible to make a clear,
connected, and proper defense during
the time allowed us and I am going to
ask the governor to grant us four
days time to prepare our defense."
Upon returning to the capitol this
request was made to the governor and
refused. We thereupon declined to
make any defense at all. Before ad adjournment
journment adjournment of the meeting, I asked the
privilege to address the governor.
This privilege was granted. My talk
to the governor was not in the nature
of a defense of my conduct as county
commissioner, but intended to convey
to him a knowledge of certain natural
and other conditions in Volusia coun county
ty county which it might be of interest for
him to know. I was informed that
my address covered a half hour in
time and I want to give Governor
Catts the credit of being a good
listener if he listened at all. What
happened since then is known to all
men m the state of rlorida. the en entire
tire entire board of county commissioners of
Volusia county has been suspended
from office bv order of Governor
I want to state, before proceeding
further, that Governor Catts conduct conducted
ed conducted the hearing personally; no one
from the legal department of the
state was present. Attorney General
Van C. Swearingen had, just arrived
at the state capital. He dropped into
the governor's office a few moments
and then left. Enough occurred dur during
ing during the afternoon to set any unpre unprejudiced
judiced unprejudiced man to thinking. Sholtz made
a. statement to the governor regard regarding
ing regarding a contract awarded to Mr. C. A.
Ballough; the latter" rose from his
seat and, interrupting Sholtz, asked if
he might say a -word to the governor.
This being granted Mr. Ballough told
the governor that there was not a
word of truth in what Sholtz had just
stated. Bradshaw was called upon to
substantiate what Sholtz had stated"
and broke down, saying that he did
not-know of his own knowledge but
had "heard someone else say it."
Sparkman when called upon as a wit witness
ness witness swore to the governor that he
would "tell the truth and nothing but
the truth so help him God," and then
gaily went on to talk of a meeting be between
tween between himself and myself and a con conversation
versation conversation alleged to have taken place
between himself and myself during
this meeting which never occurred,
and when I then charged him with
lying the governor threatened nie
