H THEIR FDOIIT
Shown by Ocala People in the War
Experiences of Lieut. Anderson
It is very seldom that so large a
crowd of people is seen on the public
square as on Friday night. In fact,
we don't remember seeing any more,
if as many, present at any evening
event. The streets in hearing of the
bandstand were packed with cars in
which their occupants had reserved
seats, and when Lieut. Anderson
stepped to the front of the stand to
speak he looked down on a sea of up upturned
turned upturned faces.
Lieut. Anderson did not try to make
an oration. He simply told his friends
some of the things he had seen and
heard during his year of service on
the front. It brought the war closer
to us than ever before to realize that
this slender young man in his simple
garb of khaki, a couple of years ago
one of our most quiet and unosten unostentatious
tatious unostentatious boys, had been thru some of
the most terrific battles that evei
shook the world, and had helped bar
the Hun in his organized raid on civ civilization.
Lieut. Anderson, who is an artillery
officer, was at Cantigny, at which
place last spring he took a part in
stopping the German offensive that
threatened Paris. At Cantigny, the
Americans for the first time took a
prominent part in a great battle in
this war. They struck the German
line a telling blow, taking the town
and holding it against all attempts
to retake it.
Very simply and unostentatiously
the young officer told of what he saw
at Cantigny and other places. He did
not play up his own part any more
than was necessary to hold his nar narrative
rative narrative together, and the people found
his story most interesting. However,
he was the hero of every small boy
in the crowd, relatives and friends of
the fighters at the front hung on his
words and many men present who ex expect
pect expect to be called soon found his talk
of the greatest interest.
Before he began speaking, a chorus
led by Miss Marguerite Porter sang
America most beautifully, and at the
close the band rendered "The Star
Spangled Banner." After that the
band gave most of its program, which
was greatly enjoyed by all who heard

t Please, Mr. Editor, be a little spe specific
cific specific and tell just how or even just
about how you figure that this nice
juicy slice or graft is going to come
out of the ten-mill amendment.'
There is not a thing to conceal or

in the past any information that may
be in the office here or that i may
have is at your service and is avail available
able available to the "public. I invite you to
call for any item of information that
may occur to you as serviceable.
I will volunteer this much informal
tion which will probably serve as a
good text for you. At the meeting of
the Florida Educational Association
at Daytona about the first, of last
January there was a resolution pass passed
ed passed asking the school boards of the
state to contribute $10 each as a per perfectly
fectly perfectly legitimate educational expendi expenditure
ture expenditure from public funds for the pur purpose
pose purpose of informing the people of the
state of the necessity for and the
purpose of the amendment. When the
regular annual meeting of school offi officers
cers officers and high school principals was in
session in Gainesville on May 10 the
question of the number of the coun counties
ties counties that had contributed their quota
was raised and a number of the most
progressive of the counties of the
state had already sent in thejrs and
on June 5 the board of Marion county
authorized it3 contribution and a war warrant
rant warrant for, this amount was drawn to
the credit of C. R. M. Sheppard, sup superintendent
erintendent superintendent of Volusia county, who
vjas treasurer of thi3 fund. They
have gotten this much of your seven seven-mill
mill seven-mill levy but I don't contemplate that
they will get any of your ten-mill
levy. This action was endorsed by
the superintendents and board mem members
bers members from all over the state and by
the state superintendent.
It is possible that a portion of this
fund has been used to pay for the
printing of the cartoons that so very 1
fittingly represent the dilemma that
you can find the Marion county school
board in ifyou will drop in at any
session of the local board of trus trustees
tees trustees when in session often times at
the Ocala National Bank wrestling
with the question of where the money
is to come from to do the thing3 that
are absolutely necessary to be done.
Within a few days I expect to fur furnish
nish furnish the press of the county with a
plain, concise statement of the history
and the purpose of the proposed ten ten-mill
mill ten-mill amendment.
.. I appreciate your indulgence in
space to discuss the question and re regret
gret regret that we do not see the matter in
the same light or from the same
standpoint. Very truly yours,
J. H. Brinson.
Thanks, Mr. Brinson, "for these
kind woids," as' Happy Hooligan
would have said, in the days before
the Hun. In those days, when you
and us occasionally tackled a subject
on which we agreed, and to which we
used more severe language than we
have about the ten-mill amendment,
you did not call us a demagogue, nor
style our discourse a tirade. In this
business, as Mr. Blueback Speller
Webster says, are we now hooking
your ox, or, as a more down-to-date
architect might remark, do you ap apprehend
prehend apprehend our getting your goat?
If we said you and your brother
and sister members of the education educational
al educational autocracy were inclined to be pig piggish
gish piggish in trying to shove this ten-mill
amendment through at this time,
wouldn't we be as polite as you are,
and somewhat more truthful
Well, we will forgive you. We are
used to being called names in fact,
we sometimes call ourself more
names in a minute than you could
think up in a week. And we ain't go going
ing going to call you and the other educa educational
tional educational autocrats particularly the au au-tocratesses
tocratesses au-tocratesses any names, either.
We do not need to be v-specific in
figuring out the graft from a ten ten-mill
mill ten-mill tax. There would be no such
elaborate thing as figuring about it.
It would be as simple as a little nig nigger

watermelon and going into it with
Your explanation about raising
funds for your propaganda is indeed
a bad text for you. You should have
known, tho probably most of the
other teachers didn't, that when you
asked the school boards of the state
to contribute $10 each to push your
ten-mill propaganda that you were
asking the said boards to break the
law. There is no law allowing a
county board to appropriate money
for such a purpose. When the Mar Marion

The Crown Prince and Others.
I first saw the crown prince profes
sionally in the spring of 1905, a few
months before his marriage. He was
then twenty-three years old. He was
in the uniform of a German army offi
cer but looked more like a corps stu
dent except for the fact that 'his face
was not marked with a scar from duel
ling, as is usually the case with most
members of the German fraternities.
He had a habit of placing his hands
on bis hips and his coats were always
flared In at the waist which, with the
sporty angle at which he wore his cap,
gave him a swagger which was quite
foreign to the rest of the officers of the
army. He was of slender figure, which
was accentuated by his .height. He
was nearly six feet tall. x.
He came into my office, I remember,
with a copy of Life In his pocket. He
took it out and. opened it and showed
me a cartoon of himself which appar apparently

showing his family.
There were two beautiful rings on
his left hand and he wore a wrist wrist-watch,
watch, wrist-watch, although at that time wrist
watches were used almost exclusively
by women. He seemed to be bright
and quick, but by no means brilliant.
Perhaps the quality exhibited by him
that impressed me most ton that first
occasion was his excessive nervousness,
He trembled all over. It was plain tq
see he was dreadfully afraid of pain,
and he evidently realized that I had
noticed his condition.
"I suppose the crown prince and the
future ruler of Germany 'ought to
be brave at all times," he remarked,
"but I just hate to have to go to a

Although I did not see the crown
prince again professionally until 1915,
the crown princess came to me in
1913, and from that time on paid me
mare or less regular visits. She was
a woman of great charm and intelli intelligence,
gence, intelligence, and although she "was more
Russian than German in her Ideas, and
for some time after her marriage was
rather generally criticized on that ac account,

She was one othe most democratic
and informal of my royal patients. 1

loud "Hoo-hoo" from the anteroom.
ARTHUR N. DAVIS. D. D. S.
The crown princess had heard that
the Princess Hatzfeld, who was a
great chum of hers, was in my office
and had followed her into my place
The Princess Hatzfeld, I may men mention,

When the crown prince called to see
me again I was surprised to find a
considerable change in his general ap appearance.
pearance. appearance. Although, of course, he was
ten years older, he bad aged more
thaa I would have expected. There
were lines on his face which made him
look older than his thirty-three years.
In the outer world he was generally
believed to be one of the leading spir spirits
its spirits of the military party In Germany,
but among his own people he was not
credited with sufficient ability or In Influence

criticized rather severely In army cir circles

In which his country was Involved and
for not taking the war seriously
enough, and from all I was able to
observe of him during the visits be
paid me after the resumption of our
relations, these criticisms were well
founded. The newspapers, however,
which were naturally inspired, always
brought his name to the front when whenever
ever whenever the army he was accredited to
made any successful showing Just as
they did in the case of the kaiser.
During his various visits to me I
tried to draw him out a little on dif different
ferent different aspects of the international sit situation,
uation, situation, but the ideas he expressed
were not of much moment.
"The allies think we will run short
of man-power," he said on one occa occasion,
sion, occasion, "but we've got 2,000,000 youths
growing up and well soon be able to
put them in the war. There's no dan danger
ger danger of our running short of men, but,
really, I wish it were all over. This
wartis a lot of damned nonsense, you
know 1" He talked as if the two mil million
lion million growing-up youths of Germany
were created for the Hohenzollerns to
use as they pleased.
Another remark he made which in indicated
dicated indicated how sadly he misconstrued the
epoch-making significance of the great
war in which the whole t world was
involved was quite characteristic.
"Witn so many men at the front,'
he said, "the men at home ought to be
having a fine time with the women,
eh, .what? .Do you see many good
looking girls in Berlin now?"
In this connection I may mention
that many of the more sober officers
told me that they were disgusted with
the manner in which the crown prince
was acting at his headquarters "It is
really a disgrace," they complained,
"for the crown prince to have so many
questionable women visiting him. It
certainly doesn't set much of an ex example
ample example for the rest of the stall."
The whole situation appeared to the
crown prince very much in the light
of a joke.
"I've just come from the western
front," he told me. "My ; men are up
to their knees in water and mud.
We've been naving lots of fun pump pumping
ing pumping the water out of our trenches into
the French trenches."
"Well, 1 suppose the French pump
It right back again, don't they?"
"You're quite right, quite right.
That's exactly what they do. Really,
it's a great lark."
Remarks of this kind rather sickened
me of this self-satisfied young man.
I realized, of course. that his part In
the war was played at such a safe
distance from the front lines that be
was probably not familiar with all the
horrors of trench warfare, and yet it
could not be possible that he was un unaware

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty bard
to define what waste is. One man's waste "may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to -health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,

The Train of Life
Sure's it's on the road we all are, and
bound for 'kingdom come;
While many have a journey long, it's
but a "lift" for some:
For there's the gay and merry youth,
intent on untried lands,
And wrinkled age with shoulders
bent, ahold of of-trembling hands.
There's kings of frenzied finance, and
, knights of small-town fame:
There sinner sits beside the saint, and
blind beside the lame;
There the preacher and the poet, and
fashion's aire queen
Rub elbows with the common herd,
that peers to watch, unseen.
Sure, there's heartache and heart
break along the untried way.
Though sunshine and star-gleam is
glimmering night and day:
There rapture and anguish waits each
turning of the wheel,
While love and hate brood side by
side, o er fate s restless deal.
Sure the train is rushingonward, we
near its snnek and roar
As fast it sweeps in greater speed
past scenes ne'er known before;
But safe and surd, without a fear,
o'er flying miles of sod
We ride secure because we know
our engineer is God!
