The Tampa Tribune is fretting
itself unnecessarily over a seven- j
line news item which appeared in
the Evening Star calling atten attention
tion attention to the sanitary cond tion of
Tampa. Its personal attack upon
Rev. J. C. Porter is doubtless
prompted by the malice of a cer certain
tain certain newspaper trarrjp who was
recently 'fired" from an Ocala
newspaper office for drunkenness.
Mr. Porter, being a staunch
champion of the temperance cause,
would naturally antagonize such a
character, and stir up bis venom
and spite. Mr. W. F. Stovall, the
editor of the Tribune, is said to be
an honorable gentleman, and we
are sure that no such false charges
against a good man Would emanate
from his pen.
It is regretted by Mr. Stovall's
many friends that he has allowed
this newspaper tramp to fill his
editorial columns with the. alcohol alcoholic
ic alcoholic vaporings of a diseased brain.
In justice to Mr. Porter, we
must say that he had nothing
whatever to do with the item in
question, he being at the time in
St. Pt tersburg, engaged in a series
of revival meetings, and was prob probably
ably probably among the last to read it.
The Tribune has greatly magni magnified
fied magnified a very small matter. The item
contained nothing more than has
been said of many other towns in
the state by their own papers, and
was certainly not intended to in injure

Discipline of the Woodpile.
Every human male man who pos possesses
sesses possesses even a lingering taint of
temper should keep an ax and a
woodpile somewhere handy, that
he may rush cut and work off his
wrath when it waxeth fierce. There
is nothing in this vain old world
that will send a man back to his
appointed work with a more wilted
collar and a truer comprehension
of himself than thirty minutes'
wrestling with a full flavored ax.
He can use it so fiercely in the
wood. All the fury ot his nature,
all the hate he feels fcr his enemy,
he can infuse into the ax handle;
and how the chips willflv! Not
very artistically, probably, but they
will fly. And presently it begins
to dawn upon the man that he is
feeling more calm. Evidently he
is experiencing a change of heart.
He dots not hate his enemy at all.
He changes his stroke and begins
to chop on the system cf Italian
penmanship the up strokes heavy
and the down ones light. He
rather loves his enemy now.
At last he puts all his failing
strength in one terrific blow. He
misses his tip with the ax and
smites the chopping block with
the handle. A tingle, as though
he had swallowed an alarm clock,
goestrom elbow to hip and back
again, the ax drops from his pow
erless hands, and a weak, limp,
nerveless, perspiring, trembling,
gasping thing, he staggers to the
house, lies down on the first thing
that looks like a lounge, and is
readv to die. There isn't a fear or
a fault in his heart. Death has no
terrors, and life has no temptations
for mm. He has chopped out all
his baser nature, and he is just as j
ethereal and spiritual as he can be
on this side of Jordan. .It is a j
great medicine. Ex.

paniments, accompaniments, of the movement are
worthy only the contempt of all
manly men and womanly women.
For example, the present new
woman fad, which talks jauntily
about woman's independence, pro proposes
poses proposes that we have a "Woman's
iiible," and in various ways
preaches a bold assertiveness for
women. The whole tendency of
this order of things is to disgrace
woman and to cast disrepute upon
all legitimate efforts for the better betterment
ment betterment of her status. Woman's high
lrerogative is that she is the nat natural
ural natural home maker of the world. As
daughter, sister, wife, mother, this
is Heaven's commission for her.
If any progress has been made in
these last days by women the
finest fruits of that progress are
seen in the better physical health,
the better food, the better care of
child life, in short, the better social
and moral conditions of the homes
of the nation. We confess to a
hearty contempt for any order of
"woman's movement" which ob obscures
scures obscures in the least this queenly
character of woman as the angel
ot the home. Bold declamation
about her 'rights" is a pitiful de descent
scent descent from her mission, unless the
"rights" involve her privilege to be
a womanly woman at home. Bap Baptist
