Chauffeurs Are Kicking.
"A wealthy 'widow t elopes with a
chauffeur," or "An; heiress elopes with
her father's, chauffeur" is a familiar
headline in the New York papers. The
chauffeur is a knight errant. Surely
there was never a knight more errant
than he. He is the wizard of the
hammer and wrench. It is proper
that he should displace Vulcan in the
affections of Venus. If women once
gladly ran away with the coachman,
by reason of the coachman's mastery
over that admirable beast, the horse,
how much more susceptible they must
be to the transcendant fascinations of
the modern chauffeur.

Mr. John Heintz, the florist, began

Ocala's new residential section, just
northeast of the present developed
limits of the city.
Wyomina Park is being developed
by Louis R. Chazal & Sons Co. Tne
parkway, when completed, will be one
of the attractive features of the
park. It has a width of 50 feet and,
with Wyomina street and a private
driveway, forms a plaza 120 feet wide
and about 1400 feet long.
The 'parkway will be outlined with

camphor trees, planted about thirty

feet apart and made to grow with a

single trunk, straight, and with the
branches cut high, after the fashion

of -road trees in Europe. Between the

rows of camphor will be planted var

The Star thinks that if the Tampa
Tribune will change the style of its
credits in reproducing comments on
its own editorial utterances from
other papers, it will make a marked
improvement. As it prints them now,
with the name of the other paper pre preceding
ceding preceding the Tribune's remarks, and
the other paper's comment following
the Tribune's credit, the average
reader is likely to think that the
other paper said what the Tribune
said and vice versa. Printers should
remember that the various tricks of
type are not as intelligible to other
people as they are to the men who
make them.

It is reported from the South Pa Pacific
cific Pacific that the German cruiser Dresden,
reported sunk by a British ship two
weeks ago, has escaped and is yet
roaming the sea. The Dresden is the
ship whose captain interfered at
Tampico to save Americans from a
Mexican mob when our own warships,
at orders from Washington, slunk out
to sea to avoid offending the greasers.
Every American would be glad if this

the click of a button and the long

of light.
It was after twelve, and they both
needed rest more than anything after
the trip down from the mountains.

with each other, and Nan rambled

Both girls rose to their feet with

"Somebody fell over the taboret

eyes wide with dread. "You turned

Eleanor thought quickly. The house

while her own heart throbbed heavily.
"Come on, now!" called a deep

regretted the great mental power that
had seeningly robbed his body of
strength. But now, when his com comrades
rades comrades were all answering the call to
battle, he was flung back from the
rank and file and could only stay at
home with the women and children.
His big, brave friends had gone off to
hurl themselves before the enemy's
shot and bayonet, to fight for the honor
of their country, yet he must remain
at home in his snug cottage like some
pampered Dresden doll.
David Grieg was a novelist of no
mean ability, and while his books
were not exactly numbered among
first sellers, they were to be found in
most good libraries. He had sent a
good-sized check to the hospital fund,
but that seemed so frightfully inade inadequate

Mrs. Wade proved very efficient and

the two children were a continual

If Mrs. Wade found her new sur surroundings

pleasant change from a none too
happy existence she did not say so to
David. j
"Do you think we could take in a

asked her half laughingly and half
seriously. "You manage so well that
I feel we could shelter some Belgian
refugees. I see a great number have
arrived on English soil today."
"Oh, if we only, could shelter some
of those poor, destitute Belgians'
Mrs. Wade responded. She set to
work after that to care for one or
two refugees whom David sent for.
"It is marvelous," he told himself,'
"how some women can shoulder their
