lead over Mr. Taft, who has demon

stolen goods, with knowledge of the
fact that they were stolen.
'"There is no man who has lived in

while we may be delayed, and while
we may he obstructed, the day wil

master mind and indomitable spirit
again set this great nation upon the
path of righteousness."

kindly expressed interest at that.
The small size of the leathering,
however, caused the Importance of the

occasion to be underestimated, and a
good many jokes to be cracked at Its


That the movement Is not trivial Is

amply proven by the fact that Herbert

I Anderson is the most prominent
leader. Ocala knows "Herb" Ander Anderson
son Anderson too well to suppose that he does

anything: without eood reason. There

Is no longer-headed man In the state

and that he is on the wronsr side of

the political fence Is the only reason

that he does not today hold high of

fice. Not only has he been a repub

Mean In a southern state, but he has
been too Independent to bow to the

dictates of the machine.

The Star Is not in the confidence of

Mr. Anderson and the other progres

slves, but this is probably their plan.
Everybody believes that the national

reDubllcan Dartv will be beaten this

fall, and hardly anybody believes that

the "progressives" will win. However.

If the machine goes on the scrap heap

the progressives will be the leaders of
a renovated party In 1916. It will
make a much better showing in the
South than the old gang, and In case
of party success will obtain federal
natronaare. Whether there be much

to this or not. it suits better the dis

position of an Independent and cour

ageous man than following the tatter
ed banners of the old guard to pre
destined defeat.

Saturday -Afternoon Sedition

When the convention reassembled
Saturday, at 2 p. m., there were Just

Mr. Hodges then took up several

planks in the platform just adopted.

excessive taxation. Increase of pen

sions to old veterans, abolishing state

and county taxes, etc. He drew a very

pathetic picture of an old man liv

ing in the country, with no bath room

but a creek and no water to drink but

what came from a well, with none of

the comforts of his city neighbor who
revels in a porcelain tub. electric

the democratic candidate a week be before
fore before election would shake hands and
call him "old sport." but a week later

would dodge for fear he might be call

ed on for $2.50 to help pay his taxes

which had been more than doubled.

He made a desperate appeal to the

feelings of the old vets; said that un

der the democratic administration in

this state they only received a misera miserable
ble miserable pittance of 27 cents per day, not

enough to get one square meal and
promised if elected to do his level best

to get them at least $1 per day.

In the matter of lowering the taxes

he said that ten years ago the people
of Minnesota, principally Swedes and
Germans, got tired of paying out all

they could make to the tax collector,
so they set out to find a remedy, and
so successful were they that for the

past ten years they have paid neither

state or county taxes. He declared the

same thing was possible in Florida,
and if elected it would be his duty and

pleasure to see this beautiful theory

carried out.

In the matter of the amalgamation
of the races, he said the republican
party had given it a fair trial but
found it as impossibility, and that no
democrat should fail to cast his lot
with the progressives from a fear that
there was a "nigger In the woodpile,"
for there would be none there, not
even a dead one.

the following well known Ocala citi citizens:

As will be seen by the following
from the Tampa Tribune, the Tampa
and Jacksonville railroad Is after the
state government for a big tract of
land which It claims as its due. The T.
and J., of which Mr. A. P. Stuckey Is
a high official, has its southern ter terminus
minus terminus near Berlin, and if the people
of Ocala had as much get up and git
as they should have, it would build
into this city. The article from the
Tribune is as follows:
To secure 250,000 acres of land al alleged
leged alleged to be due from the state of Flor-
da, the Tampa & Jacksonville Rail
way In the lederal court In Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville has entered suit against Gov.
Albert W. Gilchrist and other officials
as members of the board of trustees of
he Internal Improvement Fund. This
uit grew out of an act of the Florida
eg'slature passed In 1895, by which
the name of the Gainesville, Rocky
Point and Micanopy Railroad was
hanged to the Gainesville and Gulf
Railway. This act gave the road ev every
ery every other section of land along the
road which was to be built. Later, in
1905, this road was consolidated with
he Tampa and Jacksonville road. The
new road built twenty-five miles of
track. Under the act of the leglsla-
ure which changed the name of the
road, the company was to receive 10,-
000 additional acres of land for every
mile of track constructed. This land
n question was deeded to the state of
Florida by the United States in 1850.
n 1855 the state passed a bill estab
lishing a board of trustees of the In-
ernal Improvement Fund, the gover
nor, comptroller, treasurer, attorney
general and commissioner of agricul-
ure. The road alleges that although
twenty-five miles of road have been
constructed no lands have been deed
ed to the road under the provisions of
the act of the legislature. An exhibit
s attached describing the tracts of
and claimed by the road, and also the
lands held by the state, all of which
are classed as swamp lands. The court
s asked to order the conveyance of
the aforesaid 250,000 acres of land as
provided for under the provisions of
the act of the Florida legislature re
ferred to. A restraining order Is also
asked for to prevent the sale of any
of the described lands by the board of
trustees of the Internal Improvement

to do, and almost ran out of the house,
leaving a trail of perfumery and high,
artificial laughter behind her.
For the next week she waited for

to, no one to share her anxieties. Her

position was unusually friendless.
When her marriage had lifted her

from the ranks of working women she
had shown so cold a face to her old
companions that they had dropped
away from her, realizing that she
wished to cut all ties with the world
of her humble beginnings. New friends
had been hard to make. The wives
of some of the bank officials, and odd,
aspiring applicants for 6uch honors
as would accrue from even this re remote
mote remote connection with the august name
of Ryan, were all she had found where wherewith

She ate her solitary meals in oppres oppressive

eyes fixed upon her in ironic disbe disbelief

account for Dominick's absence. Eat
as slowly as she would, her dinner
could not be made to occupy more
than twenty minutes, and after that
there was the long evening, the In Interminable
terminable Interminable evening, to be passed. She
was a great reader of newspapers,
and when she returned from her after afternoon
noon afternoon shopping she brought a bundle
of evening papers home in her hand.
She would read these slowly, at first
the important items, then go over
them for matters of less moment, and
finally scan the advertisements.
At the end of the week she felt that
she must find out something, and went
to the bank. It was her intention to
cash a small check and over this
transaction see if the paying teller
would vouchsafe any information
about Dominick. She pushed the
check through the opening and, as the
man counted out the money, said
"Do you hear anything of my wan wandering
dering wandering husband?"

The teller pushed the little pile of

silver and gold through the window

toward her and leaning forward, said,
with the air of one who intends to

have a leisurely moment of talk:

"No, we haven't. Isn't it our place
to come to you for that? We were
wondering wherte he'd gone at such

a season."

Berny's delicately-gloved fingers
made sudden haste to gather up the


"Oh, he's just loafing about," she
said as easily as was consistent with

the disappointment and alarm that

gripped her. "He's just wandering

round from place to place. He was
getting insomnia and wanted a change

of scene."

She snapped the clasp of her purse

before the man could ask her further

questions, nodded her good-bys, and

turned from the window. Her face
changed as she emerged on the wide,
stone steps that led to the street. It
was pinched and pale, two lines drawn

between the eyebrows. She descend

seized upon her. Many of the pass

ing throng of men looked at her a

pretty woman in her modishly-made
dress of tan-colored cloth and her

close-fitting brown turban with a
bunch of white paradise feathers at
one side. Under her dotted veil her

carefully made-up complexion looked
naturally clear and rosy, and her eyes,
accentuated by a dark line beneath
them, were in attractive contrast to
her reddened hair. But she was not
thinking of herself or the admiration
she evoked, a subject which was gen generally
erally generally of overpowering interest. Mat Matters
ters Matters of more poignant moment had
crowded all else from her mind.
The next week began and advanced
and still no news from Dominick. He
had been gone fourteen days, when
one evening in her perusal of the pa paper
per paper she saw his name. Her trembling
hands pressed the sheet down on the
table, and her eyes devoured the print printed
ed printed lines. It was one of the many short
despatches that had come from the
foot-hill mining towns on the recent
storms in the Sierra. It was headed

chief item of information was that

tel. Hotel. A mention was made, only a line

or two, of Dominick's walk from Rocky
Bar. but it was treated lightly and

gave no idea of the real seriousness
of that almost fatal excursion.
Berny read the two short para paragraphs
graphs paragraphs many times, and her spirits
went up like the needle of a ther thermometer
mometer thermometer when the quicksilver is
grasped in a warm hand. Her relief
was intense, easeful and relaxing, as
the sudden cessation of a pain. Not
only was Dominick at last found, but
he was found in a rlace as far re

moved irom nrs own ramily and Its In Influences
fluences Influences as he was from her. And
best of all he was shut up. Incarcerat Incarcerated,
ed, Incarcerated, with Bill Cannon, the Bonanza
King. What might not come of It?
Berny was not glad of the quarrel,
but it seemed a wonderful piece of
luck that that unpleasant episode
should have sent him Into the very
arms of the man that she had always
wanted him to cultivate and who was
the best person in the world for him
to Impress favorably. If Bill Cannon,
who had been a friend of his father's,
took a fancy to Dominick, there was
no knowing what might happen. In
a sudden reaction of relief and hope
Berny saw them almost adopted chil children
dren children of the Bonanza King, flouting
the Ryans in the pride of their new newfound
found newfound honors.
It made her feel lenient to Domi Dominick,
nick, Dominick, whose Indifference and neglect
had put her to the torments of the
last fortnight. After all, he could not
have let her know his whereabouts.

The wires were just up, and the rural
mail-carrier had pot yet been able to

effect an entrance Into the snow-bound
town. Why Dominick had chosen to
go in this direction and had attempted
an impossible walk in a heavy snow snowstorm
storm snowstorm Berny did not know, nor just
now care much. A sensation as near
remorse and tenderness as she could
feel possessed her. Under its soften softening
ing softening Influence spurred to generosity
and magnanimity by the lifting of the
weight of anxiety she decided that
she would write to him. She would
write him a letter which would smooth
out the difficulties between them and
bring him home ready to forgive and
be once more his old self, kind, quiet,
and indulgent, as he had been in the
first year of their marriage.
Then and there, without further
waiting, she wrote the letter. It ran

as follows:
"My Dear Husband: I have only
just seen in the paper where you are,
and, oh, the relief! For two weeks
now I have been half crazy, wondering
about you, waiting to hear from you.
And nothing ever came. Dominick,
dear, if you had seen me sitting here
