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.

at Coroner' CoUt at Chlqago.

Befri'e a des4e dirowd packing the
council chamber l* the Chicago city
ball, Thursday, Coroner Traeger and a
itrY of slx men began the official In-
vesaUiatlon of the Iroquois theatre
fire. The first witnesses were persons
who were in the audience at the matl-
nee. They told of the panic and of
finding the exjts locked.
Outside In the ante room a boost of
witnesses waited to be heard. Fright-
ened victims, who eeoaped with their
lives from the fiery furnace, actors,
chorus girta, stage hands, policemen
and firemen- mingled there, making a
strange- gathering.
Within the council chamber the- in-
quisltJon proceeded along judicial
lines. Lawyers were present on be-
half of niumerois Interests, seeking
opportuniLy to examine witnesses
along lines of special Interest to their
clients. Under Coroner Traeger's rul-
ing, such questions were barred and
the examination continued strictly
along the lines laid do*n by that ofli-
A dozen witnesses were heard dur-
itg the day's session. Tho chief wit-
nesses were Eddy Foy, the comedian
of the "Mr. Bluebeard" company, and

the lobby and endeavored to open
the west door, that being nearest. It
was locked on the inside and he could
not do anythlpg with It. iHe tried to
open two other doors, but could not,
and kicked out the panel.
Mrs. Elvira D. Pinedo proved one of
the most Important witnesses. She
"I was" standing near one of the
boxes on the extreme right of the
main door and In the rear of the seated
people were standing four deep. I
first saw sparks on the south side of
the stage back of the scene and could
seo a man clapping his hands In an
effort to put out the sparks. The mo-
mdnt I saw fire I quietly looked abouf
for an exit, and saw' what I believed
to be one near the boxes. The fire
spread rapidly and people got up and
urged everybody to be heated, as
there was no danger. I nevor saw a
saner audience In my life. Half of
the audience woro women and they:
calmly sat there and saw the sparks
change into flames without screaming
or getting panic-stricken. Suddenly a
big ball of fire dropped from Lho top
of the stage to he floor. ft was iuirn-
Ing scenery. I walked to the exit near
the boxes. I tried to open the door,
but found It locked. A man came up
and we demanded that the usher open

'ihe difficulty of Inducing grass to
flouris under a tree in full leaf is well
known, and is generally explained by
saying that the tree absorbs the nour-
ishing constltuentts of the soil or that it
keeps the sunlight away from the
grass, and protects it from rain. It sla
doubtful whether any of these explana-
tlions aIre true, the real reason mosat
probably being that the vitalizing dew
cannot form upon the grass under a
tree, whereas as a rule both rain and
light cnl reach It. Dew Is probably
essential to the well-being ot both plant

Wo f 6f authaJLj- .jow and then; anm
yet'lhe had hos'e Li ough some twenty:
yeart in a world where all sorts o
words abound, and had, not met that
kind. She knew Just where the troun
ble lay. She had been shielded from i
-tunwleely, foo11shly-by a too tender
fritly of male relatives. She had beer
kept out of her right, as it were: When
sate merited rebuke she got only gen-
tle remimntttance: and when she need-
ed to be led she was followed Instead
sometimes far In folly.
But now that she had come to New
York to earn her living she meant to
r age all that. She had thought it out.
f aIntended to 'take service with a
high-handed master; to throw otf re-
sponsibility; to put her thinking appar-
u down in camphor balls as unne-
eslary;-and to do only what she was
bidden. Her brother was away from
home on a business trip, and did not
know her plans. .
-Pate and a Want Ad. led her to the
eqihlishment of Mr. Barney Blevins,
and a red-lhilred youth led her on into
Mr. llevlna's own office. Mr. Blevinq
was' a stout sottletlan and coatless. He
saw no real reason 'for rising or remov-
-ing his cigar. He looked the dainty
figure over from top to toe; his eye
dwelt a moment on the face, which was
delicate and yet had a strength of its
own. Then he remarked: "You're a
likely looking girl. Want work do ye,
She should have known better, but
she didn't. She beamed at him. The
burr in the voice was strange to her,'
and the choice of words Was not what
she would have heard at home; but un-
derneath both there was a deep sound
of mastery that wps grateful to her
-ear. This was What she had traveled
miles to hear. She wished he would
do It again, .
It developed that Mr. Barney Blevins.
had increasing outside interests and
that he wanted some one In his office
as confidential clerk. He thought she
would do.
"And check up the cash register," he
explained. "And watch the others, the
cheats! Watch every one of them. Aidl
-I hope you're honest," he shouted
suddenly. "Are ye honest. ch? WVell.
about how honest now-what's the very
lowest price for your honesty?"
The week passed slowly by. The girl
watched the others and saw many
things : but she kept them to herself
Somehow It seemed difficult to lay
them before Mr. Barney Blinvnii Tihe
cash came short every bleseid night,
and grins-quiet, ghostlik'e grins-
went the rounds when the confidential
clerk squared things each time out of
her little purse.
Mr. Blevlns took her to his bank andi
Introduced her. and said to the nashlir:
"Watch out for me, will ye? I ain't
sure of the girl yet. She better be hon-
est, be-dad! There's better ones gone to
the bread line that's went against me'"
And the cashier had looked at her
with wonder In his eye and she hadl
felt uncomfortable.
Was this the word of authority?
Could a vine-woman cling comfortably
to an oak-man like this. Then Mr.
Blevins showed her the combination of
a little safe, his personal safe. tlhat hold
some hundreds ot dollars In cash, and
a box of diamonds. These sine was to
consider her charge-nobody else knew
the combination.
She did what she was told, and she
was told In English strange to her ears.
SB1 got real criticism, outspoken,.
fresh from the heart, and frank withal.
Her every action was dictated. But she
did not throw off responsibility. In-
stead she grew pale and nervous. She
counted #he diamonds and the cashi

fewer; and the register followed her

Every Inch a Soldier,
The United States cavalry does not

ecse any better than are to be found
among the. 200 in the Philadelphia
Mounted police force. In fact, every'
one of the mounted policemen in thib
city is a thoroughbred soldier, and al-
hough not so thoroughly trained in
avalry tactics as the regular cavalry-
man, can show the same pluck, the
ame devotion to preciseness in drill
s. the soldier does. That such is the
ase, however has been quite gen-
,rally understood. An incident, of a
recent drill of the mounted police in

truction of the drillmaster, Lieuten-
nt John Reed, and he was working
ard teaching the men certain man-
euvres which, in the event of a riot,

during this charge that the horse of
policemann Samuel Cooper of the 26th

A Thought for the Week.
Learning Is acquired by reading
books; but the much more .necensarjr
learning-tbe knowledge of the world-
is to be acquired only by reading memn
and studying all their various edi-
tions. To know mankind requires
fully as much attintlon and applia.-
tion as to know books, and perhaps
more sagacity and discernment. I am
at this time acquainted with many el-
derly people who have passed their
whole lives in this great world, but
with such levity and inatttntilon, that
they know no more of it now than thev
did at 16. You' must look Into people,
as well as look at them.-Lord Ches-
terfield's Letters to His Son.

His First Case.
Old Sitnlro Mason, long a popular
and fltl.i'nt niagletrato in a Kentucky
cminty. IN often remltided by his
frienits of thlie first case brought be*
fore hlim for trial, tie had attended a
country school, and In the debating
society had acquired a ratlier forceful
nainer of speaking and a fair knowl-
edge or parliamentary procedure, but

be know nothing of law.
Ho was nominated for the magls-
ttacy when quite a youting an, and
much to his surprise wats tletod. 15e
Immediately ordered a tinlmy of the
statutes of the stant', ibut bitforo It ar-
rivod he was called uipoin to exorclas
the ditlies of his loflee.
One of his neighbors had made In-
formal on against anotnior for assault
and battery, and the case had to be
tried before the new Justice. He felt
sure some of hip friends would want
to be present to hear him In his first
case, and to forestall as many as pns-
aibie, appointed 7 o'clock the next
morning for the henrlng.
To his great delight, only then p.-i ,
sons were preseit-the aceniSild, ilhm
counsel and the constable.
The squire took his seat and rapped
for order, but did not knurw how to
proceed. Finally, with rn,-loIned face,
he said, "Will some oin iilca'se state
the object of this mn-titnK "
The Lawyer, knowing fli, man, Im-
mediately grasped thii iltuiatilon, ant
rising said, "Your himir. the objecl

The Titne-Unton of Sunday had
the following beautiful tribute to
wen. Gordon:
"General (ordon is dead!.
"No loss could call forth wider
sympathy throughout the South. q
Every old soldier who wore the q
gray loved him. Everyone .has
taught his sons and daughters to
admire him as the ''4tt sur-
viving -type of the ohlamt people f
who fought agxlnst hopeless odds, a
and won, bpt bad to death from a
wounds inflated 't. their victories. *
"And tt 91d 'hero who lies cold t
in his far Southern home is a fit
type* f the best of the old South. d
Anid what was best of the old South U
tas best of the world-a people
whose watchword was honor, who j
did'not value life without it, who
erased stains with blood. The
erasing fluid was so costly that
there were few stains The old
South is gone, and wha4 is called a
higher civilization haas.ucceeded.
It is the civilization ofsthe world,
but not of the nation that lived four
years in blood and- smoke and died
in glory. The dollar mark has e*x-
tended its way to the South. The
old ideas have been replaced by the
"General Lawton of Santiago
fame said he was not a hero. He
was a regular. .Gordon was not a
regular, but he was a hero. In
time of peace he lived a life of
peace. He asked nothing of his
country when men were not needed-
He was only ready with his life
when lives were the price of liberty.
"General Gorlon went Into the
army a captain. Him successive
promotional which carried him tb
the second highest rank in the Con-
federate armies were the rewards of
good service. He showed what
manner of man he was, and he rose
because he wan needed iun higher
command. The man who with five
bullets in his body held his regi-
ment in position aft Sharpsburg
gave promise of the man at Appo-
mattox who was to move' forward
with his corps of tantterdemalion
heroes and split his way into a host
superior in numbers .a.s fifty' is to
one and surrender only when his
commander ordered the hopeless
fight to cease.
"General Gordan came ,aut of
the war one of the youngest, if not
the very youngest, of the lieuten
ant generals, but with a.position in
the hearts of the South only second
to that which Lee himself occupied.
His State needed his services, and
used them. Georgia never had a
better Governor. His rank was
high in the United States Senate.
He had no rival among the Con-
federate Veterans. He retired to
private life of his own volition.
His people would gladly have kept
him in the harness until death
gave him rest.
"No man can make the career
that the dead chieftain made with-
out a big heart throbbing in unison
with the hearts of his people.
Among hi- contemporaries even in
his own State there were keener
intellects, but no man. had hia
influence. He was of the people,
of heroic style, but still of the peo-
ple They comprehended what he
said. They. understood him be-
cause he represented what was
warm-hearted and aypathetic in
Their natures, and they loved him
and honored him for what he rep-
S"To-day bells will toll through-
out the South, and hearts will
respond to sorrow, for the dead was
loved for what he did for his people
and honored as the representative

of their glory."

rille Star.
The Star is one of the few-very
few-papers in the state that keeps
up the squawk for an early primary'
and the abdve is a fair sample of the
argument in that behalf. It is only
such anxious-to-be-a-politician gen
leman as the twice-a-week Star
man that are worried about the
late of the primary. We have not
!en Where any of the candidates
except Barrs has discussed the stub-
ect. either way, showing that the
candidates are not deeply concerned
about the date of the primary.
The probabilities are that .all the
candidates would like a fair oppor-
tunity to see the people in each
county before the primary. It will
necessarily take much longer for
the gubernatorial antd senatorial
canvass of the whole state than for
Mr. Barrs to complete his canvass
in the second district, besides he
had a considerable start.
Mr. Call and Mr. McNamee have
just recently announced, and both
should be given a fair show.
As regards the farmers, they arc
not fretting about it in the least.
They don't get the offices an way
and are not neglecting their busi-
tie a iu the interest of any office
seeker. If the politicians want the
farmers, to attend the primaries
they must call them when the farm-
ers are not too busy. That's all
there is to it.-Pensacola News
As will be seen by the foregoing,
the editor of the Pensacola News
has again discharged his little pop-
gun at the editor of the Star. It
will be seen, also, as others of his
wallings have shown, that he is en-
tirely too simple to understand
when a brother editor speaks in
seriousness and when. his remarks
are in a spirit of Jun., He tries to
give out the impression that the
Star is one of only a vasY Ptw
newspapers in the State which are
in f.vor of an early primary. If
lie believes what he trica to make
others believe, he is wofully ignor-
nit. He seems to think that
bec.&use Messrs. Call and McNamee
have onily recently announced their
c arlidacics. the primary should
,nt' b.. hi-lh t tant1l they ihave had 1an
oupour unity to see every voter; and

1,Lftre lthe primary.
In soinc respects our brother oi
the Pensacola News is an interest
ing writer, while in other respects
he. is ana "anoosing little cuss;"
and because, as he says, none of the
candidates except Barrs have dis-
cussed the subject either way he
thinks the Star man should "hands
off," but we believe the candidates
are the last persons on earth to be
consulted about, the matter, and we
are quite sure that the interest of
the masses demntands an early pri-

"It is a pity that editors can not
relieve their pent-up feelings by
cussint' politicians, delinquent sub-
scribers, non-advertisers, printers,
mid raising the 'devil' occasionally,
without jumping upon one an-
other," says the Zolfo Advertiser.
And then a little .further along it
says Editor Godwin of the Gaines-
ville Star is a Jackass.--St. Peters
burg Times.
Consistency is said to be a jewel
-but. we're not butting into this
discussion.-Daily Capital.
When an animal like the Zolfo
Advertiser says the editor of the
STAR is, breaks out of the stall and
gets into the open lot, little pests
like the Zolfo editor ism-a cross be-
tween a coon dog and a goat-are
usually found seeking safety under
the barn.

Senator TaHliferro writes an in-
quiring editor that he is in favor of
anything that will benefit the mas-
ses. Considering his political affil-

want to know whom the senator
accepts as authority as to what will
benefit the masses-the masses
themselves, or the Standard Oil
Company.--St. Petersburg Times.

The Executive Committee will
confer a favor upon the people of
the State by calling an early pri-
mary. The campaign has been
practically on for six months, the
issues have been joined and dis-
cussed before the voters and the
candidates announced. Therefore,
nothing can be gained by deferring
the' call to a late date.----Southern
