The first issue of the Gainesville Star appeared on May 1, 1903. D.E. Godwin was its publisher, and the paper appeared semiweekly at least through October 4, 1904, by which time W.L. Hill had taken over its management. Some issues bear the heading “Twice a Week,” and publisher’s information occasionally referred to the “Gainesville Twice a Week Star.” The Star appears to have been affiliated with the Democratic Party. The Gainesville Star carried reprinted stories from around the world while providing a good share of local news as well. Among the issues discussed regularly in its pages was the adoption in 1904 of a “dry ticket” and the resulting closure of the town’s saloons. The prohibition of alcohol would contribute the following year to the relocation in Gainesville of the University of Florida, the state’s college for men. Gainesville was known for its good drinking water and the lack of any other beverages or activities that might get young men into trouble.

Baptist Parsonage
The Baptist people of Gainesville are
under obligations to one of their mem
bers-Prad W. King-for a donation in
the shape of a
ing lot in East Galinesvile, and the
church ba instructed the fioa.ace com-
mittee to proceed at once to the prepara-
tion for e nice building on the -lot.
The Baplibs have a handsome church
paid for, but are at prese it having to see
their pastor occupy a ret.ed house.
They hope however, to see the pas*or oc-
cupying a paid for Baptist personage be-
fore another year shall have been num-
bered with the things of the past.

highly respected and prosperous citizens
of the coutin .y, has faith in the.crange in-

not one of those who totally forsook his
orange g-ove after the freeze of severAl
years ago, and now the grove is yielding
him a handsome income.
ilesides his ot1 ginal possessions in or-
ainge grove property, he has recently
bought a tract of more than a hundred
ac'cs of good land adjoining his home
place, a'id on this tract is a splentidid
farmi, "and about a dozen acres of fileor-

is level. If the State is spared a few

Are Yo nLeftt Eye4 ow Right Bred
Thelie are but few ambidexters either
in the matter of hands, feet or eyes. It
nmay sounl rthellr queer, but It sl a fact
nevertheless, that ninety-five out of ev.
cry hlindred li aunn bplngs are right
handed, left legged and left eyed.
Felix Ileiotint remarked that It Is an
established fOC tlint we all use one eye
more than we do thle other, which es-
tabllshes as clour a case of "left and
right eyodness" as though the same
terms were used to denote a preference
In the use of hands and feet.
If you wnnt to decide as to whether
your friends or relatives are right or

stop to consider whether they are

"hlow do you know?' asked one of
hbla audience.
"By bid well kept hands I know he's
not a merchant .seaman. They work
too hard. But. Just the same, he's a
seafaring man. Whenever you see a
man pacing like that make up your

Can't Stay.
Some of Rev. W. J. Carpenter's friends
are predicting that he will be sent to
Jacksonville, Tampa or Pernandin, when
the Methodist annual Conference meets
in iake City. The church people of
Gainesville, Irrespective of denomination,
would regret very much to see Rev. Car-
penter leave here. He is very popular as
a minister, but it is said of him, "He
can't let liquor alone.'" It is thought by
some that he can't stay in a town where
there is no liquor-to fight.

canal treaty, arrived -at Colqn, Colom-
bla, 6arly Tuesday. Senor ~sprilla,
the minister for foreign afgafr of the
republic. of Panama, arrived from
Panama Monday night, and the treaty
was turned over to him. He then
boarded the train for Panama, tta'ing
the treaty with.him,
On Minister saprilla's :arrival In
Panama he drove immediately to the
government palace where the chest
contalnng the treaty was deposited.
Members of the junta and of the min-
istry assembled In the grand salon )f
the palace. The chest and two small
tin boxes addressed to the members ot
the Junta and bearing the seals of
Minister Banau.Varllla were placed on
a table In the center of the room. Stir
rounded by the spectators, who were
seated about the table, Senor Esprilla
opened the chest and withdrew the
cotton wrappers, finally bringing to
light the treaty enveloped In theRana-
man flag. The document was ad-
dressed to the members of the juntas
by Minister Bunan-Varilla.
Senor Arias then broke the seal and
formally handed the paper to the
members of the Junta. There was
only one copy In the English language.
After discussing Its provisions, the
minsters and members of the junta all
signed the document with a special
gold pen, purchased for the occasion.
The treaty was signed at 11:33 a.
m. There were no amendments. When
every preparhtlon had been completed
for the final actual signing of the trea
ty, a government decree waq adopted.

formed by the unanimous will of the
people of the Isthmus and possessing
full sovereign powers over tie Isth-
mus territory; be It
"Resolved and decreed, that the
treaty be approved In all parts."

ama, announcing the approval of the
Hay-Bunan-Varilla treaty were rerelv-
ed by Minister Bunau-Varllla at Wash.

Wood's Despetebes.
Sir Evelyn Wood Is distinguished by
a wellness in which he has very few
equals. He gave a specimen of this
during the operations following the In-
dian Mutiny. He volunteered to carry
dispatches through the enemy's coun-
try. and disguised himself as an Itin-
erant merchant, being fairly familiar
with Hindustani. Traveling by night
nnd day, he got too close to a rebel
canup, and, was arrested and detained.
After being somewhat carelessly ex-
amilned he was allow-d to spend the
night In a tent. As he expected, during
the darkness some natives crawled un-
der the canvas and stealthily searched
his saddle-bags and wallets. but found
nothing except sundry light articles of
commerce, the dispatches having been
taken by Wood from a slit In his tur-
ban and burled underneath the spot
where he slept. Next morning he was
permitted to go, and reached the Brit'
Isb camp In safety.-Men and Women.

By Jesasle Ackrrmann

century wais hurled nt the head of a defenseless public.

own picture.
In this genernlisation iand hasty summing-up little has been saWd about the
progress of man hlaseltf-man a" gilde from woman.
Man (aindd "with all bhis fault we love him still") is, after all, only balf
civilized. and there Is no doubt tIe t every condition of the last century has
made hlni more selfish and moere .elf-ceentered.
It would be difficult to find -one who would not unbealtatlngly take his

"How can It be hone'I" yoitiay, well ask. In days past It was thought that
there was but one weapon of. eucessful 'Warfare upon the frailties of the
sterner sex. This sentiment Is now carefully wrapped in the oil and spices of
sweet memory, and hangs'in the archives of a burled century. This sword of
victory-a wowamn'a love-was the theme of all nations. Poets In turn raved
anud sung of it; men (they wire less ambitlons then) died-yes, really died' for
It. All conditions met In comlorn camp to-tell of woman's love; but alaal
'Time and Chaige!"
In the Anal analysis under the light of a new century the verdict has-gone
forth that woman's love has failed to fully elvilise man. Some loving, tender.
clinging wife lifts her voice apganst the unholy decree;-but It Is useless, for it
Is the verdict of the Court of Putlic Opinion.
Woman, witd her qurk .Insttnct and ready wit, recognized the fact that
something must be done. and twenty-five years ago she entered the woman's

the club have aecomiplahbid nothing more, they have aroused woman to the
tact that man must be civyllsed and bhusebands must be trained; they have
taught her how and where to begin, and her duty Ia no*. clearly before her.
There is no doubt but the ast y of child-culture has completely overturned
the old Ideaaf hbome.edctOtloi In refreence to the.boy and glW. The begin-

ida, especially those most interested
io the welfare of Stetson Univer-
sity, want to see Mr. Stetson placed
back at the head of the institution,
and they will never be satisfied
until he is, They look upon the
treatment he has received at the
hands of a majority of the trustees
as a mojt ungrateful, as an outra-
geous proceeding. The --st thiug
that can happen for the university,
is for those trustees who have been
fighting the benefactor of the insti
tutioun to resign. Their resigna-
tion would be accepted with de-
light by every person who has
