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.

"United 8tats Molaster Powell had
directed the captain of the Yankee to
take drastic meaesra to avenge John'
son's death. and this insult to' the
American lag. Johnson will be buried
on shore thia afternoon.*
Another dispatch, under date of
Wednesday, February 3, .says:
"The funeral of J. C. Johnion, the
engineer of the Yankee's lIanch, who
was deliberately killed by the inaur-
.gents last Mpaday, -took plsae tLls
morning Instead of Monday afternoon,
as had been arranged. The body was
escorted to its, grave in the Banta
Barbara cemetery by a detachment of
marinesablueJackets and officers from
the Yankee, headed by the ship's band.
There were in all 100 men from the
cruiser In the cortege.. United States
Minister Powell, the American consul
and vice consul and nearly all the dip-
lomatic and consular representatives
here went to the funeral. The provI-
lonal government sent a detachment
of troops to act as an escort. ,
"Great surprise is expressed by all
Toreigners here that the commander
of the Yankee has not demanded Im-
mediate satisfaction for this lnexcusa-
ble act, and for the firing upon the
American flag by tMe insurgents.
There was, heavy Bring all day today
around the city."

German Censul Guarded.
The German consul at Ban Domlngo
has requested United States MInlster
Powell to afford protection to Herr
Worman, the German vice consul, that
he might bring his family into the
city, as the Insurgents have given Mr.
Wormas 48 hours to leave where he la,
or suffer the consequences.
Consequently, Mr Powell secured a
guard of sixty men from the United
r States cruiser Colombia, and Informed
the government that It was the luten-
tion of the German consul and him-
self to bring herr Wbrman's family
Into the city and asked the govern-
ment that Its troops not fre upon this
party, while It was on Its mission. He
said that If fired upon they would pro-
tect themselves. As soon as the guard
passed outside the city they were cov-
ered by the guns of the Culombin. No
attack was made and the Wortman
family and their belongings were
brought back into the city In safety.
All the houses outside the city walls
have boon pillaged. The insurgents
are desperate and are destroylng,,for-
algn property wherever they find It.
Mr. Powell has received urgent ap.
peals to protect foreign property
against this pillaging and the Colom-
bia may be compelled to land marines
to do so.

An Omlette Every. Day.
Mr. O. W. Zook essayed to sell off
all his poultry stock, and thought he
had done so. but afterward one pullet
that had escaped the poultryman's
axe turned up. Something over two
weeks ago Mr. Zook found two eggs.
one white and one brown, in the soli-
tary neat In the barn, and every day
thereafter for ten days he did the
same. He had seen but one chicken
about the place, and It suddenly
dawned upon him that his pullet was
doing double duty in showing the su-
periority of the Missouri ben. So he
set about watching her. For three
weeks he noted her visits to the nest
and found one white and one brown
egg. He knew there were no eggs in
the neat before the hen's visit, and
therefore concluded to a certainty that
for two weeks the hen had laid two
eggs a day.-Maltland (Mo.) Herald.
