A wonderfully prophetic fic fiction
tion fiction story written fourteen years
ago of the wreck of the TITAN,
which, like the Titanic, was the
world's largest and most palatial
vessel and generally regarded as
unsinkable and indestructible.
Like the Titanic, too, the TITAN
was wrecked by an iceberg in the
month of April when speeding
along the northern lane route

were officers, who. besides being the
pick of the royal navy, had passed
rigid examinations in all studies that
pertained to the winds, tides, currents
and geography of the sea. They were
not only seamen, but scientists. The
tmtne professional standard applied to
the personnel of the engine room, and
the steward's department was equal t
that of a tirst class hotel.
Two brass bands, two orchestras and
a theatrical company eutertained the
passengers during waking hours, a
corps of physi la us administered to the

the spiritual welfare of all on board,

First, that if another craft should
strike Her the force or the Impact
would be distributed over a larger area
if the Titan bad full headway, and
the brunt or the damage would be
borne by the other; second, that if the
Titan was the aggressor she would

would cut her in two with no more dam damage

be more easily steered out of danger,

the third return trip had not lowered
the time between Sandy Hook and
Daunt's rock to the five day limit, and
it was unofficially rumored among the
2.000 passengers who had embarked at
New York that an effort would now be
made to do so.

oilers passed to and fro. in and out of

with oil cans and waste, overseen by
the watchful staff on duty, who listen

note in the confused jumble of sound
or a clicking of steel out of tune
which would indicate a loosened key
or nut. On deck sailors set the trlan
gular sails on the two masts to add
their propulsion to the momentum of
the record breaker, and the passengers
dispersed themselves as suited their
tastes Some were seated in steamer
chairs, well wrapped, for. though it
was April, the salt air was chilly:
some paced the deck, acquiring their
sea legs: others listened to the orches orchestra

The sailor addressed, a slight built

Among brklesmen, and kinsmen, and
brothers, and all.
Then spoke the bride's father, Jiis hand
on his gun
(For the poor craven bridegroom had
never a one) :
"O, come ye in peace here, or come ye
in war,
Or to dance at our bridal, Cracker-Jack
"I long wooed your daughter, my suit
you denied,
Love swells like the Tampa Bay, but
ebbs like its tide,
And now I am come, with this lost
love of mine,
To lead but one measure, drink one
cup of wine:
There are maidens in Gotham more
lovely by far.
That would gladly be bride to Cracker-Jack
The fcride kissed the goblet, Cracker Cracker--
- Cracker-- Jack took it up,
He quaffed off the wine, and threw
down tho cup.
She looked down to blush, and she
looked up to sigh,
With a smile on her lips, and a tear
in her eye.
He took her soft hand, ere her mother
could bar,
"Now tread we a measure," said Cracker-Jack
So, stately his form, and so lovely her
That never a hall such a Cracker did
While her mother did fret, and her
father did fume,
And the bridegroom stood thinking

And the bridesmaidens whispered,
V'Twere better by far

One touch to her hand, and one word
in her ear,
When they reached the hall-door, and

So light to the Pat the fair lady he
So light to the wheel beside her he
She is won! We are gone through the

"They'll have fast autos that follow."

There was racing and ceasing right

But the lost bride of Buntington got j

For Cracker-Jack Lochinvar honked j
up to the Clyde. j
And boarded the Mohawk with his j

The steamer then glided right into the j

Fur the land of the orange, whence she ;

And the young Cracker Lochinvar j

While her father and kinsmen 'raged

(Mrs. E. Via Hood, Editor)

voters and terrifying' politicians, the
man of vision sees the doom of King
Alcohol written by a divine Hand
whose five fingers are hygiene, here heredity,
dity, heredity, business, patriotism, humanity.
I. The Eiaeer of Hygiene.
The laws of nature are really the
oldest testament, but only recently
have its hieroglyphics, written In the
white and red of nerve cells and blood
corpuscles," found a Daniel to interpret
them. It was at the feet of the fore foremost
most foremost medical experts, of Germany,
Prance, Britain and the United States
that President C. W. Eliot, of Harvard
University, -unlearned, at seventy, his
life long theory that a gentleman
might properly drink beer and wine on
moderation. He now proclaims that
in the light of modern science it is
"inexpedient" to drink at all. And it
Is scientific experiments at Tale, with
others, that have prompted President
Hadley to say that If the American
people-were made to know what alco alcohol

saloon from the land. "Uhy shouldn't
the churches take up that word of
President Hadley and make as familiar
as "Sapolio" the fact that is declared
iby Prof. Hodge of Clark University
J and others, that alcohol is the "waste
; product" of a microbe. Let us repudi repudiate
ate repudiate the policy of the. mother who
j wanted her daughter "taught history,
with all the painful parts left out,"
,and tell the truth, that alcohol is li li-jquid
jquid li-jquid excrement.
j To proclaim that unquestionale fact
j by posters in every market place and
by leaflets at every door would be to
write the doom of drink. Does anyone
suppose a poet who knows that, can
rage in praise of "ruby wine?" Will
refined ladies who know that, ask gen-
tlemen to take the amber beer from
; their hands?
i II. The Finger of Heredity.
And when it is generally known
that' the touch of wine or beer on the
lips of husband and wife makes those
Hps curse their unborn children, does
anyone suppose that husbands and
wives, though willing to risk their own
health, will still consent to blight their
children. Professor Demme, of Berne,
found in descendents of Alcoholic
Families only 17 per cent, of the chil children
dren children normal, while In temperate fam families
ilies families it was 88.5.
III. The Flnaer of Commerce.
The old argument for abstinence was
that one who drinks may become a
drunkard; the new argument is that
only by abstinence can one reach the
highest efficiency. As John G. Wooley
says, the argument is no longer failure
but fitness. The United States Bureau
of Labor, sums up a report on "The
Economic Aspects of. the Liquor Ques Question,"
tion," Question," based partly on answer to ques questions
tions questions sent to a representative list of
American employers, in these words:
"More than half the establishments re reporting

and under certain circumstances, that
employees shall not use intoxicating
liquors." Business men and even labor
unions have been fooled into the be

Of each dollar spent in manufacture

In "wet" territory the cost of liquors
average about $1.25 per family. (It
averages $17.39 .per person for "wet"
and "dry," and the country is almost
half "dry.") But proof was given all
through the Maine campaign and un unchallenged
challenged unchallenged (for it was based on tlie
figures of the Portland Argus, the

than the most complete possible libera liberation
tion liberation of our people from the destructive
effects of the use of alcohol. There
are, of course, differences of opinion
as to the best ways of attaining this
end. But that the end can and must
be reached is the principal point upon
which all are united. In our time the
struggle for existence goes on among
the people with increasing sharpness
because j general development is pro progressing

individual, to use the utmost exertion

perhaps to be finally overcome by a
more vigorous people or community.

moting, promoting, as it does, the physical, moral
and mental powers, facilitates greater
productiveness in the muscle and nerve
taxing work of our modern times.
These powers render possible greater
intensity and more enjoyment in work,
and by that means improve both the
quality and the quantity of labor. But
what is of yet greater significance,
this physical and mental strength is
transmitted in a notably increasing de degree

All of this will so obviously strengthen
the competitive power of a people in

the injurious effects of alcohol will
thereby attain a marked advantage
over other nations in the amicable yet

which will first understand and secure
this advantage."
IV. The Finger of PatriotUm.
Those words of the crown prince
represent the fingers of hygiene and
heredity and business and patriotism,
and they chime with words of the
German emporor, in Feb. 1911. "The
nation which takes the smallest quan quantity
tity quantity of alcohol will win the battles of
the future." Americans who have de depended

intelligent self love in fighting the sa-

loon as the foe of health and business
prosperity should learn from the lead leaders
ers leaders in other lands the force of
the arguments that bring in the force
of heredity, patriotism and humanity.
In France also the patriotic argument
is foremost. Because France is a "dy "dying
ing "dying nation." the government puts up
posters warning even aeainst tippling
that falls short of drunkenness, "for
the tuture of the nation."
V. The Flnser of Humanity.

themselves for the Boer War to pass
the examination, and puts up in a hun hundred

which adds to the patriotic argument

the yet larger warning against race
degeneracy. As Congressman Hobson
shows in his great speech on alcohol as
"The Great Destroyer," degeneracy of
the human race the world over is
threatened in th widening markers of

of this place, during the past 12 years,
has probably tried more different diets
than the average person would ever use
in a lifetime.
What he has to say about his experi experiments,

ing interesting to anyone suffering from indigestion
or stomach troubles of any kind.
He says: "For more than 12 years.
I suffered with stomach troubles, and
paid hundreds of dollars for doctor bills
and medicines. I was also operated on
for piles.
I lived on dried peaches and buttermilk
for nearly three years. The only thing
that would not give me pain was raw eggs.
I was a physical wreck. I could nol
sleep, and was as near crazy as a man
could well be.
I must say that after taking two 25-cen1
packages of Thedford's Black-Draught,
it did me more good than all 1 ever spent

4I don't suppose you are hungry,
but we saved some supper for jou,
dear," said Jane's mother to Jane as
that young person slowly approached,
dragging her white- lace -"-parasol
across the stump-Infested lawn of
Jane's family's summer cottage.
Jane sank with emphasis into a
cane rocker and gazed moodily into an
unusually fine sunset.
"Thanks, I'm not hungrj," the said,
Jane's brother, who was tastefully
attired in soiled white trousers and
a track shirt, reared the upper half
of his body from the cool grass and
regarded her critically.
"You look seedy, sis," he remarked.
"What did they do to you at the Hon.
Mrs. Biggs deckle edgedT and hand
tooled party?
"Do!" cried his sister, turning pink.
"They didn't do a thing but make me
feel that I ought to blush for my

alone my unpardonable pretensions to
social standing in the community. It's
a good thing Mrs. Biggs superior eye
has never fallen upon your present

Invite us to leave the colony." ....
The youth addressed kicked off a
tennis shoe delightedly and crowed In
derision of Mrs. Biggs.
"My dear Jane!" protested their
mother. "James, don't be rude."
"The first thing I heard when I got
to the party," proceeded Jane, "was
Mrs. King bemoaning the fact that the
like Is so dirty. She said that she just
shuddered every time she went in,
and the very moment she got out she
always ran for the bathtub and turn turned
ed turned on the hot water! And yet I had
almost broken my neck to take my
dip in that same lake at 1:30, so as to
be all nice and fresh for the party!"
"Swat the fly; he is a "deadly
peril!" quoted Jane's brother, pawing
the turf in ecstasy. "How does it
feel to be in the insanitary class,
"Well, of course, that set me right
at once as to. the kind of people who
were there," pursued Jane, "and when
I looked carefully over those present
I was sorry I hadn't brought along
our storage warehouse receipt just to
intimate to all assembled near that
this dress I'm wearing Isn't the only
one I have in the world." .She. paused.
Then she went on, .pensively ; "One
of the simplest costumes at the party
was a heliotrope satin, appllqued in
real lace and veiled in black mar mar-quiette
quiette mar-quiette sort of a tight effect"
"You've got it!" declared Jane's
brother, delightedly. "I saw that
woman yesterday trying to climb on
the board walk in front of thevInn
and flying signals, of distress."
"Then the conversation turned on
servants said Jane. "Mrs. King
simply couldn't find a laundress that
she could trust with her little things,
and Mrs. Biggs had really hesitated
about taking the cottage this year
when she remembered what a state
her French embroidery was in at the
end of last season. Then t they com compared

"I see you doing it, sis!" encour encouraged

"Further," reported Jane, "Mrs.
Browne is much dissatisfied with sev several
eral several little matters, so prepare to shed
a sympathetic tear. She wants to
give a lawn party, but she would be
ashamed, actually ashamed, to invite
any one to her lawn; she counted 15
stumps from the window of her break breakfast
fast breakfast room alone! I thought of this."
Jane waved her hand.
"Jeems," said her brother, with sud sudden
den sudden severity, "I desire you to extract
the stumps from this greensward at
once. Then seed it down with the
best quality of lawn grass and engage
a bright young landscape artist to
plant a border of dwarf redwoods
around the pump!"
His sister laughed. "Well, I don't
care, Jim; It was pretty awful," she-
said. "Goodness, I really and truly
am hungry; caterers never fill me in
a way that you could call satisfactory.
I believe I'll go out to the kitchen,
mother, and find that supper you
saved for me."

But he doesn't approve of Sinclair's

he, "when I take a meal with Upple,

the little things that count In this life. History tells us that the Duke of
Wellington attributes the victory of the Allies at Waterloo to the closing of
the Hugomont Castle gates by James McDowell and John Graham. It was a
small thing. But the results nave nee n marvelous as we look back over the
f Intervening years.. Philip D. Armour knew the value of little things. They

Mr. M. E. Robinson is circulating a

ers owners in the vicinity of the road ar6 sign signing,
ing, signing, asking the county commissioners
to harden the cross road, that" connects
the Martel hard road and the Dunnel Dunnellon
lon Dunnellon hard road. The distance is a little
over a mile, and starts from the lane,
just east of Duffy's buildings on his
farm and strikes the Dunnellon road
at the intersection of the Dunnellon and
Shady Grove roads. This short piece
of road will connect two important
ones, greatly facilitate all passing that
way and much shorten the distance.
We hope it will be granted.

Mr. II. A. Kramer is being made the
victim of thieves whose cheekiness is
certainly the limit and a little more.
Fie has a furnished house at Weirsdale,
which has been the object of their
depredations. They have gone in not
only at night, but in broad daylight,
carried off such of the furniture as
thehy fancied and thrown the rest on
the floor. They have killed or carried
off most of the chickens and helped
themselves to such of the vegetables
as they wanted. The remonstrances
of a nearby neighbor, who had been
requested to look after the property,
have been treated with contempt. The
parties who it is alleged have be behaved
haved behaved in this high-handed manner have
already had some, trouble with the
courts, and will probably have more,
as Mr. Kramer intends to prosecute
them. If their actions have been cor correctly
rectly correctly reported, they have been guilty
of a serious offense.


To My Voter Friends:
I take this method of thanking my
friends for their liberal support in the
last primary. I invite the voters to
investigate my actions in the past as an
officer, and if they find I haven't been
on the job and done my duty by all the
people of Marion, then don't vote for
me. If you are not in favor of hard
roads don't vote for me. If you don't
think I am the right man in the right
place don't vote for me. It has leen
rumored that I would not run in the
next primary, that's' a mistake. I did
say if I did not lead the ticket I would
withdraw in favor of the high man, no
matter which one it might be; but as
I was the fortunate candidate I will
ask for your support.
Very respectfully,
C. (Ed.) Carmichael,
