One of the worst things about the
Mendenhall-Eliot tragedy will be the
"wages of sin" stuff that will be
handed out by. the preachers and mor moralizing
alizing moralizing newspapers in regard to it.
The truth of the matter is that such
conduct as that which caused the trag tragedy
edy tragedy near Clearwater is going on all
over the country all the time, and has
been ever since society set a standard
of morality that men and women
could not violate without scandal.
Once in a while one of these cases
comes into the limelight thru a trag tragedy,
edy, tragedy, but the great majority are known
only to a limited circle and compar comparatively
atively comparatively few ever break into print.
The causes. are indissolubly welded
into human nature, which defies law,
morality, conventionality and relig
ion. Talking about the "wages of
sin" is mostly mockery. The sinners
are generally the ones most lightly
paid. The burden almost always falls
on the innocent. Even in this case,
Mendenhall will probably suffer far
less than. his own wife and daughter,
or than Eliot, the husband and father
of the murdered women. And doubt doubtless
less doubtless Mrs. Eliot suffered more than
her erring daughter. The wages of
sin exist all right, but the bulk of
them are paid to the wrong parties.
Mr. A. E. Gerig, Ocala agent for
the Equitable, has established his of office
fice office in the northwest corner of Bur Burnett's
nett's Burnett's jewelry store, where he can
see everybody who passes and esti estimate
mate estimate how much insurance they should
carry. In spite of the so-called dull
times, Mr. Gerig is doing a right
smart of business. He is a first-rate
business man and represents one of
the best and strongest companies in
the world, so it is no miracle that he
keeps the, ball rolling.
Mr. W. H. Lane received a telegram
yesterday morning from his wife at
Arlington, Ga., stating that his neph nephew,

was dying of blood poison, and in the
afternoon received another message

Mr. Lane left on the limited for Ar

the son of Mr. J. C. Cowart, one of
the most wealthy men of the place.
He was a splendid young man, just
starting in business and beloved by
all who knew him. He was beloved

I don't like slides anyhow and wouM

Again Japan might declare war on

Merrill's store and buy a five cent box
of the 4th of July kind and fire them
at the cats, than to see the Japs
fire theirs at the U. S. steamers, for
I feel sure I would be there.
Now I can conjure up a good big
number of valid reasons why I should
not go, but will refrain from tortur
ing my imagination any further., ex except
cept except to say that my cousin, Miss Bes Bessie
sie Bessie Haskill, who intended to chaper chaper-one
one chaper-one me, found it impossible to get
away on account of her duties at a
large ladies seminary, where she
holds a very important position, so
feeling the need of relaxation from
the turmoil and activities of Belle Belle-view,
view, Belle-view, I decided to take a summer
course at the University of Florida,
I had heard of the useful knowledge
dispensed at that institution and
thirsted for some of it, so on the 12th
of June in full traveling regalia I
boarded the old train No. 4, on the
Seaboard and told the conductor to
let me off at Waldo, to which he
We had no sooner rolled into Ocala
when a familiar face hove in sight,
no less a person than your editor-in-chief,
Mr. Benjamin, hunting for news
items. He always seems to be hunt hunting
ing hunting for news items when I. see him,
and I rather think the habit has be become
come become chronic, almost a hopeless case.
Anyhow, after coming clear down to
that Seaboard depot and finding me
going so far away from home, he on only
ly only gave me a little four line notice in
the daily, when I feel sure it called
for at least half or three quarters of
I met lots of people that I knew,
and more that I did not know.
I also found that Sniglefoot's fame
has gone all up and down the line,
and that he is the subject of much
discussion in railroad circles, on ac
count of his attachments for rail railroad
road railroad conductors.
Sniglefoot has a fondness for con conductors,
ductors, conductors, and especially for their coat
After awhile the conductor told me
that we were coming to the city of
Waldo, where I must change cars to
get to Gainesville. I did so and found
a lot of pilgrims bound for the same
place I was headed for, then I took a
look around and saw Waldo, and
when I saw it I was glad that my
home was in Belleview. All the same
the people that inhabit Waldo feel and
think the same of their little junc junction
tion junction city. I do not like junction
I am not sure, but I think they took
the Waldo, out of Ralph Waldo Em Em-merson's
merson's Em-merson's name when they christened
this town. After waiting around an
hour or so we boarded another train
for where we were going, and we
were on our way when we reached
Gainesville it reminded me somewhat
of Ocala, for the town seemes to be
just about the same size. It is laid
off just the same way, the depots
are in the same relative positions;
the Seaboard depot being about half a
mile from the court house, and the
Coast Line track running through the
town and stopping right off the court
house square, right in front of one
of the hotels.
The court house at first appearance
has a more striking appearance than
our own in Ocala, but the inside will
not compare so well.
These Gainesville people must have
more money than our Ocala people,
for I found things looking more
thrifty, the stores more lavish in their
displays, the houses have a more set
tled and prosperous look, and the up
keep of the streets was fine.
There is certainly some fine drives,
buildings and homes in Gainesville,
and the lay of the land gives it a
picturesquessness all its own.
A handsome boulevard runs out to
the University, about a mile from the
court house, and as one arrives in
sight and the scenery and building
after building unfolds, the view is
something to thrill a pedson, with
pride to think that Florida maintains
such an institution of learning. It is
something grand, and I only wish
that every scholar in the public
schools of this state could make a
trip to tnis place and see wnat a
bright promise the future holds for
