Mr. Braxton Beacham, federal food

problem which is now confronting

an especial appeal to the officials of
the state to ; enforce the vagrancy
laws. V
v "I am especially concerned with the
fact that Florida is now facing a
shortage of labor and will continue tt
experience difficulty in getting labor laborers
ers laborers to work mills, cultivate fields, and
assist in other production.
"It strikes me that now is the time
for a 'rigid enforcement of our laws
as regards vagrancy.
"I think it is the duty, and the pat patriotic
riotic patriotic duty, of every official of the
state or of the city, to demand these
laws to be put into effect and full
force at once.
"The men who refuse to work
should be put where they have to
work. The man who has not a job at
the present time should explain why
he is not working. Every man who
refuses to work when he could be at
productive employment is little less
than a German soldier for he is really
helping Germany to fight his own
"Farmers and the mill men and
other operators are having a hard
time to get sufficient labor while in
the cities and towns, we find able
bodied men warming the chairs of the
pool rooms and loitering on the cor
ners or on the docks.
"This time, of all times, is one when
we should have no idling. An idler, is
a slacker, and if he jcannot be made
to realize this through patriotic lap
peal, the realization should be given
him through the iron hand of the law.
"I especially urge the officers of
the law and those in executive au
thority in the cities to at once co
operate in forcing idlers to go to
work or failing to do that, put them
on the streets or in the employment
of the city so that they may have
proper punishment for their failure
to help their country."

Count Czernin Says They Are Re Responsible
sponsible Responsible for Keeping Austria
in the Conflict
(Associated Press)
London, April 3. Austro-Hungary
was recently "almost on the point" of
beginning peace negotiations with the
Entente Allies, Count Czernin, for foreign
eign foreign minister of the dual monarchy,
declared yesterday in his address to
the Vienna municipal council. Thb
wind "suddenly veered." he added, the
Entente deciding to await develop developments
ments developments in his country "which caused
it to hope that the dual monarchy
would soon be defenseless."
Not all duties are pleasant. They
could scarcely all be pleasant in the
lives we humans lead. We wouldn't
even ask that every duty be made
pleasant. For the very function of a
duty is that one may acquire pleas
ure through its performance. We all
remember as children how we were
forced to take medicine that didn't
taste good, that made us cringe as it
approached our lips, and yet it was
necessary in order that we might get
well.. So we screwed up our faces and
took it and felt better afterward.
Now a duty appears before us in
this third Liberty Loan of three bill billion
ion billion dollars that our government hopes
to raise and will raise. But in taking
this medicine no one need cringe or
make a wry face. Every subscription
to the new bonds should, of course, be
made from motives of patriotism
and because we love our country and"
what it stands for. That goes with without
out without saying, but the bonds should also
be bought with pleasure as they give
us a chance to save as much as we
can, and get interest for it besides.
So, any surplus that we have or
any that we can get, ever through
serious sacrifice, let's hand it over to
our Uncle Sam, saying, "Here. bov.
take, it, use it, spend it as carefully
as you can, that government of the
people, by the people and for the peo
ple shall not perish from the earth."
This is a suggestion that the Mar
ion County Board of Trade offers to
every man, woman and child who
wants to save.

The Times-Union gives the story of
a romantic affair that took place on a
Seaboard train between St. Peters Petersburg
burg Petersburg and Tampa Sunday. It was the
marriage of Miss Viola Hansen of St.
Petersburg to Second Lieutenant C.
W. McMullen of the quartermaster
corps. Lieut. McMullen, who is sta
tioned at Camp Gordon, had been to
his home in St. Petersburg on a visit
to his relatives and his fiance. As he
was about to leave Sunday night, he
and the young lady decided that they
would have all the happiness the war
would spare to them and marry im
mediately. By the time they obtain obtained
ed obtained a license and a clergyman, it was
also time for the train to leave, and
the only way to carry out the pro program
gram program was to be married on the train.
So they and the minister boarded the
train and their hands and liveswere
joined while it sped northward up
the Pinellas peninsula. The marriage
will be of interest to Company A men,
for Lieut. McMullen was with them
on the border. He was a lieutenant
in the old Second Regiment, but had
resigned and was entirely a civilian
when the guard was called out in
June, 1916. There being no commis
sion open for him, he re-enlisted as a
private, but was soon appointed a ser
geant. He was transferred into our
company at Laredo and came home
with it. He went into one of the of
ficers' training camps of the first
series, and won a second lieutenant's
commission. He and his bride will
not have any more sincere well wish
ers than his old comrades of Com
pany A.
Since the long-range German can cannon
non cannon began .its bombardment of Paris,
it has come to light that our naval
ordnance experts have plans for a
gun that will send a shell over 100
miles. Our ordnance office does not
seem to think that such guns are

sion. session. This group comprises the bank bankers
ers bankers of the northern half of the state.
The organization of the bankers into
groups is a new thing, the meetings
that have been held and are being
held over the state this week just
prior to the state convention in Tam
pa, Friday and Saturday, being the
first sessions of the groups.
The attendance was not as large as
was hoped for as all of the bankers
of the state are very busy men just
now, but those who did attend were
given a royal good time and enjoyed
every minute of the day.
The local bankers arranged an in
teresting program for their visiting
brethren, as follows:
Leaving Ocala at 9:30 in automo
biles, the visitors, went to Silver
Springs, where the big pleasure yacht
Wekiwa was chartered from Mr. Ed
Carmichael and a 25-mile run down
the river was taken, a most appetiz
ing and bountiful dinner being served
on the upper deck of the boat while
the vessel was tied up at Mr. Ran
dall's beautiful orange grove on the
river, bluff.
The dinner was greatly enjoyed by
the bankers and their invited guests,
the ride on the river having given
them the keenest of appetites, and
much praise wa3 given the members
of the committee who planned the
meal and the ladies of the Woman's
Club, who prepared it
At Connor the visitors were taken
through Mr. Pat Randall's beautiful
orange grove, where the rapid growth
of the foliage has almost hidden the
scars made by the freeze of fourteen
months ago. The trees are looking
well and are plentifully covered with
little oranges just forming from the
bloom buds.
After dinner the boat continued its
journey up-stream and. a short busi
ness session was held oh the boat, the
bankers holding their session on the
lower deck.
Never were Silver Springs run and
the Oklawaha river seen to better ad advantage.

just warm enough and just breeze
enough yet not so much as to ripple
the surface to the extent of marring
the clearness of the water. The Ok Oklawaha
lawaha Oklawaha is very low and discharging
but little water above its junction
with Silver river, and even below the
mouth of the little river the watei
was clearer than many of those
aboard had ever remembered seeing
it, while Silver Springs run proper
was just like a mirror and literally
as clear as crystal.
More than a score of alligators, lit
tie and big, were seen. Hundreds of
turtles were basking on the logs in
the clean sunlight and would tumble
off and swim lazily away, as the boat
passed, while cranes and herons would
stretch their long wings and sail
away over the cypress tops in languid
Thousands of fish, from gars to

have given the visitors more pleasure.
Exclamations came spontaneously all
through the trip of the visitors' de delight
light delight over what was seen and felt.
On the return to the head of the
Springs, Mr. Carmichael sent the
visitors out in the glass-bottomed
boats to view the matchless beauties
of the Springs proper, as seen thru
the clean glass in the boats', bottom.
The return to town was made about
4 o'clock, the guests leaving for their
homes shortly after, some on the
limited and others on the night trains,
while one party in an automobile
waited till, this morning and made
the trip to Orlando overland.
Those on the trip were Mr. A. B.
Sims of the Fulton National Bank of
Atlanta; Mr. C. H. Lewis of the Cen Central

H. H. Johnson of the Lowry National

feel proud of the entertainment they
extended to their guests.

be laid on the table of indifference.

greeted. The wonder is, observes a

they are so infrequent. Everybody has

There wa3 quite an outbreak at the
industrial school last night. The
superintendent had to take a sick girl
to the hospital, and while she was
there 28 out of the 40 inmates of the
school flew the coop. The city and
county authorities went after them
and by noon today had rounded up all
but five. They did not seem glad to
return home. Some of them talked to
Sheriff Galloway about like they
ought to talk to Kaiser Bill, and one
bounded a section of a brick off his
head. They say women can't throw,
but the sheriff says this girl is evi evidently
dently evidently an exception. They bunged the
nice new school building up quite a
lot, too. The state authorities ought
to give the superintendent more help.
She is at present working under a big
disadvantage. It is probable that the
most unruly of the girls will be taken
to the county jail.
A bunch xf the industrial school
girls 'were found in Gainesville this
