Judging from all we hear of it, the

the biggest and best ever held in
Florida, and probably has seldom
" been exceeded in any other state.
Very few men have done more this

law, requiring officers to invade the
premises of private citizens and de destroy
stroy destroy all wine, liquor and beer above
a certain small amount found thereon
is, in our opinion, unconstitutional
and, also tyrannical. A number of

people, now citizens of Florida, but
brought up elsewhere, have on hand
stocks of wine for their own use and
that of their friends. To invade their
homes, confiscate and destroy their
property without remuneration is, in
our opinion', more detrimental to tem temperance

The Star is trying to obtain the
names of all Marion county men and
boys who are or have been in the ser service,

!are sent in, and people interested in

Catts recommends that Marcus En-
del and Chas: B. McKinnon, pure food
and drug inspectors, who he removed
over a year ago, be reinstated by the
senate. He admits he was mistaken
in suspending them. The state will
have to pay their salaries for the time
they were deprived of their offices.
Catts removed these men; he also re
moved the sheriff of Duval county and
the commissioners of Volusia county,
and reinstated, them. Yet he says he
could not remove the superintendent
of the Marianna school, whose negli
gence,- it has been, proven to the world,

brought much reproach on Florida.
We wonder why Gov. Catts doesn't
sometimes sit down for a few minutes
in a quiet place and think about him
self -:
The Star thinks the request of the
State Federation of Woman's Clubs
that at least a minority of the mem
bers on any board appointed to look
after, the reform schools should be
women, is very reasonable. It should
be remembered that prominent mem members

As the end of the war drew nearer,
the casualty lists became longer. On
Monday's list were 910 killed and 529
severely wounded. Of course, all these
were not stricken down on any one
day, but were reported on it. 'How
far back that day was, there is no
telling, but it probably accounted for
some period of the desperate fighting
that began when Foch assigned the
American army to split the toughest
knot in the German line.
Quite a fight was made in both
houses of the legislature on the thou
sand dollar appropriation1 for the au
tomobile for the girls' industrial
school at Ocala, but it seems to have
won. Passage of 'the bill will please

Connecticut Farm Hand Worked Fifty

But According to Physician Few Real-
ly Suffer Because They Try

A doctor of very wide experience has
noted ; this phenomenon : every day
men come to him, broken down in
health; and almost Invariably they
inform him that the cause is "over "overwork."
work." "overwork."
"Yet, on further questioning, this
doctor finds that virtually nohe of his
patients work as hard as he does. Yet
he is well and they are sick; he is
strong and able to do his work without
exhaustion, and they can do little or
no work any more.
This is. his deduction: that their
breakdown was not due to work, but
to a terrible load of psychological and
physiological habits they had been
carrying a load so great that a very
little work in addition overtaxed their
waning strength.,
What are these habits? They vary
with the individual, and their aspects
are innumerable.
Work Just plain, wholesome hard
work, either physical or, mental hurts
very little. It hurts healthy people people-people

Proper Way to Keep Honey.
; In selling honey as a substitute for
sugar the retail grocer and his cus customers
tomers customers may encounter some difficulty
through lack of knowledge of storing
and handling this product, according
to American Food Journal. House Housewives
wives Housewives usually put .their honey in the
cellar for safekeeping, probably the
worst possible place, as honey absorbs
moisture from the atmosphere and
will become thin and in time sour.
Comb honey kept in a damp place will
be hurt-In appearance as well as in
quality. A practicable rule is to keep
honey in any place where salt remains
dry. If ioney has granulated or can candied,
died, candied, put the can containing it in a
large vessel holding water no hotjter
than the hand can be borne In. If
the water is too hot, there is danger,
of spoiling the color. and ruining the
flavor of the honey. The can of honey
should be supported on a block of
wood in the vessel v of water, so that
the heat from the stove will not be
too intense.
In a Tiger's Lair.
In the lair of a tiger there are cer certain

bones, and are evidently spots to which

its prey before 'devouring it and the

The wild birds of Australia when
mating have each their own peculiar
methods of courtship. For tenderness
note the dusky wood-swallow (bee-bird),
which snuggles, up close to the lady of
his choice after bringing her grubs and
other succulent insects. On the other
hand, some of the parrot tribe make
love much after the stone-age fashion,
when the caveman simply clubbed his
heart's desire insensible and dragged
her home by the hair. A male roslla
parrot, for instance, invariably begins
by biting her, presumably to inspire
her with respect. After this operation
the gaudily-dressed suitor spreads his
tall fanwlse, flirts his wings and dis displays
