of his fellow men, he has been suc successful

When, sixteen years ago, Bryan

light of publicity, the little Daily Daily-Star,
Star, Daily-Star, then edited by A. L. Harding, one
of the most sincere of men, gave him
loyal and enthusiastic support. Those
who followed Mr. Harding on the Star
have never anticipated Mr. Bryan's

ed compelled to speak he must speak truthfully
or lose his self-respect. The question
was one impossible of evasion because
evasion would have been equivalent to
a candid answer.


Ocala will be honored lhi3 week in
the meeting of the representative Bap Baptists
tists Baptists of the state. The Baptist, in
point of numbers, Is second among the
denominations of Florida, and is not
excelled by any in its good works.
Many of our most prominent men are
counted in its membership and its
churches always stand for the best
there Is in public and private morals.
There Is not a community of any
size in Florida without a Baptist
church, and the delegates here this
week will represent forty thousand of
as good people as there are In the
world. It will be worth a great deal
to our city from a material aa well as
a moral standpoint to have them re return

people, without regard to denomina denominational

in showing them hospitality.

Is simply because we will not practice
that which might "be best for U3. No
one has heard Mr. Bryan advocate any
policy that would not be good for the
country if It was intelligently and

argued against him that his ideals are
too high but suppose we all tried to
live up to them.

nation after nation, and is steadily
gaining ground in this country. If we
do not check It in these days, when we
can do so by peaceful means, it will

destroy it. One reason and another is
given why Mr. Bryan's policies will not
work, but the real objection to most
of them Is that so many of the people
have not the bravery and self-denial
to put them to work.
Mr. Bryan has made his mistakes,
but they have been honest ones. His

He has never been accused of corrupt

Mr. Bryan may never be president,

The advent of the state convention
of the Baptist church brought out a
large congregation Sunday morning,
and if a few of the delegates had been
in hand it would have puzzled the
ushers to find seats for them, and Pas Pastor

is noted took a back seat and thereby

whatever judgment the coming dele delegates

and the people, they will assuredly
have to admit that the feminine por

tion of the church membership know
how, and do, indulge in fine raiment,

for a crowd of more richly dressed
women ia seldom seen either in this
city or any other.
Before the service proper the pastor
mentioned the subject of entertaining
the delegates, from which it appears
the church is having a strenuous time
of it not at all on account of any
want of hospitality on the part of the
congregation or their friends on the
outside, but because the city at this
time is full of visitors; not only are
the hotels and boarding houses crowd crowded

a room to spare either has the same

the year at the height of the visitors'
season. However some way will be
found to accommodate the delegates.
Some will occupy two homes during
their stay, that is, one home will sleep
them and another home with eat them.
While on this subject Dr. Chapman
told a funny incident of an occurrence
at some place where he was stationed
in Georgia. The delegates arrived on
one train and all the cooks left on the
next, but a little thing like that doesn't
phase an Ocala congregation when it
starts in to entertain a convention,
and there is no fear of any delegate
going home hungry.
Pastor Chapman spoke of the exer exercises

that the two principal speakers, Dr.
Willingham of Richmond, and Dr. B.

The latter he said ranked in the same
class as William Jennings Bryan and
that he expected every nook and cor corner

chairs would be placed in the aisles to
accommodate the people.

I1EN Sheldon emerged from
among the trees he found
oan waiting at the com
pound gate, and he could

not fall to see that she was visibly
gladdened at the sight of him,
"I can't tell you how glad I am to
see you," was her greeting. "What's
become of Tudor? That last flutter of
the automatic wasn't nice to listen
to. Was it you or Tudor?"
"So you know all about It," he an an-wered

looked at ber keenly. "Disappointing,
isn't it?" he drawled.
"How do you mean?"
"Why, that I didn't kill him."
"But I didn't want him killed just
because he kissed me." she cried.
"Oh. be did kiss you," Sheldon re retorted
torted retorted in evident surprise. "1 thought
you said be hurt your arm."
"One could call It a kiss, though it
was only on the end of the nose." She
laughed at the recollection. "But I
paid him back for that myself. 1
boxed bis face for him. And be did
hurt my arm. It's black and blue.
Look at it"
She pulled up the loose sleeve of her
blouse, and he saw the bruised im imprints

Just then a gang of blacks came out
from among the trees, carrying the
wounded man on a rough stretcher.
"Romantic, isn't It?" Sheldon sneered,
following Joan's startled gaze. "And
now I'll have to play surgeon and doc doctor
tor doctor him up. Funny, this twentieth
century dueling. First you drill a hole
In a man. and next you set about
plugging the bole up."
They had stepped aside to let the
stretcher pass, and Tudor, who bad
heard the remark, lifted himself up
on the elbow of bis sound arm and
said with a defiant grin:
"If you'd got one of mine you'd have
bad to plug with a dinner plate."
"Oh, you wretch !" Joan cried.
"You've been cutting your bullets."
"It was according to agreement,"
Tudor answered. "Everything went

wanted to."
"He's right," Sheldon assured ber
as they swung in behind. "Any weap weapon

"1 don't see that it's my fault," she
began. "I couldn't help it because be

attempt it."
"We didn't fight for that reason. But
there Isn't time to explain, if you'll
get dressings and bandages ready I'll
look up gunshot wounds and see what's

"is be bleeding seriously?" she asked.
"No; the bullet seems to have missed
the Important arteries. But that
would bave been a pickle."
"Then there's no Deed to bother
about reading up," Joan said. "And
I'm just dying to bear what it was
all about. The Apostle Is lying be becalmed
calmed becalmed inside the point, and her boats
are out towing. She'll be at anchor
in five minutes, and Dr. Welshmere is
sure to be on board. So all we've got
to do la to make Tudor comfortable.
We'd better put him in your room un under

boat off to tell Dr. Welshmere to bring
his instruments."
An hour afterward Dr. Welshmere
left the patient comfortable and at attended

to dinner. Joan and Sheldon, stand standing

She looked at Sheldon and began to

way 1 feel, playing the fool and trying
to murder a guest."
"But you haven't told me what it
was all about."
"You," he answered shortly.
"Me! But you Just said it wasn't."
"Oh. it wasn't the kiss." He walked
over to the ralling'and leaned against

repeating the gossip to me. So you
see it won't do for you to stay on here
under present conditions. It would be
better if you went away."
"But I don't want to go away," she
objected with rueful countenance.
"A chaperon then"
"No, nor a chaperon."
"But you surely don't expect me to
go around shooting every slanderer in
the Solomons that opens his mouth?'
he demanded gloomily.
"No, nor that either," she answered
with quick impulsiveness. "I'll tell
you what we'll do. We'll get married
and put a stop to it all there."'
He looked at her in amazement and
