At the recent meeting of the State
Good Roads Association, held at Eus Eus-tis,
tis, Eus-tis, one of the important discussions
was to find a ways and means of mak making
ing making the organization one of the most
powerful of Its kind in the entire
country. Local Good Roads Clubs
are to be organized to be affiliated
with the state association, and direct
membership is to be sought through throughout
out throughout the state.
It is expected that the association
will have a membership of five thou thousand
sand thousand before the next annual meeting
at Gainesville and that the Galnesv'lle
convention will be the greatest
gathering ever held in the state. The
Gainesville convention will be the fif fifteenth
teenth fifteenth annual convention.
The Eustis meeting adjourned to
meet at the call of the legislative
committee at Tallahassee, where the
legislative committee will report on a
number of bills they now have under
consideration. The good features of
the bills that have been submitted will
be incorporated into separate bills.
The first real work of the State Good
Roads Association will be undertaken
at Tallahassee and the cumulative re result

report thereon while the body Is In

Institutions inspected by committees
from the legislature takes a consid

account of the desire of the members
of the cormmittees to return to the

WICKED ME" AN'U FALLEN' WOMEN
In Chicago, where the cross-currents
of wickedness from all points of the
compass meet in a great whirlpool of
vice, but where men and women of
high-character are striving desperately
to stem the tide of moral pollution, a
commission of members of the Illinois
state senate Is conferring with leading
citizens on ways and means to check
and diminish, even If they cannot dry
up, the stream that bears so many
American girls to the hells of the un
derworld every year. It has for years
been the cry of a certain class of re reformers
formers reformers almost solidly reinforced by
the Boclallsts. that low wages was the
greatest and almost the .only cause
that sent respectable girls to the street
and the red-light district, and even eventually
tually eventually to the potter's field. It is Idle to
deny that unpaid and underpaid work
has much to do with the'evil that digs
pits worse than graves In over a hun
dred thousand American homes every
year, but we have in Ocala, as well as
every other community in the land.
jlenty of evidence that the following
letters, received by the vice commis
slon, are based on the truth.
The first letter said:
"To the Commission Girls don't go
wrong because they are hungry, or
because they need clothes. They go
wrong because they are temped by lies
and overpowered by the evil in men
They listen to the fair and pretty
things that men tell them and they
fall because they think they can trust
themselves and trust the tempters. It
is not the employer. I was a Rood girl
and I worked in a store. I didn't get
much money, but that didn't matter.
lived on $8 a week and would be liv living
ing living like that now but I met men
They seemed to consider me their prey,
and all the time it was fight, fight.
They wanted to be nice to me, they
said, and to take me to the theater and
treat me fair and give me a chance to
enjoy life. I didn't know men were
bad all bad where a girl is concern concerned.
ed. concerned. I thought only women were bad
I thought all a girl had to do to remain
good was to be truthful with herself.
God pity women who think that and
who keep their trust in men until It is
too late. Every day It was someone
else always smiling at me always
trying to give me a 'fair chance to te
happy. In the street they followed me.
These I could avoid, but the 'friends'
who hung around! That is the big, big
secret of the thing that makes a good
girl bad. If they had left me be if
they had only left me be only let me
live as I wanted to I wouldn't have
had to slink into the room when your
commission was trying to solve things.
and wouldn't have had to sit in a cor
ner with my veil down, afraid to look
a good woman in the face."
Another cry from the under world
echoed the words, of this letter. It was
more bitter, though, and it read in
'You're looking for the things that
make such women as I. Low wages!
Dance halls! Hunger! Cold! They all
helped a bit, but they did not turn the
trick themselves. You're all a bunch
of hypocrites, afraid to look the thing
in the face and afraid to learn the
truth. I don't know any girls who sold
themselves for money to buy bread or
clothes. But I do know lots of us who
hit the road for hell because a lot of
blackguards kept hounding them with
their rotten 'attentions.' God
help the men and not us! We're all
right when we start. All we need Is to
be left alone. There are hundreds and
hundreds of kids and sports who hang
around State street and wait like
wolves for the tired girls to leave the
stores. Why don't you make the men
be good? All, the wages In the world
won't help us. Make the men good
and the girls will be good. Now they
haven't a chance, and they never will
have as long as the law smiles at one
and spits at another."

At the recent meeting of the Marion
County Medical Society, the president
appointed a committee to decide on the
wish expressed by the Ocala papers,
that restriction on the use of the
names of physicians, when publishing
news Items regarding cases of sickness
or accident, be withdrawn.
The committee recommended at the
meeting of the society last night, that
the restriction remain In force, and the
report was adopted.
The physicians thanked the papers
for their interest In the matter. The
position of the medical men is about as

many and varied and of these she gave
with a willingness and a modesty all
her own, proving an inspiration to all
with whom she came In contact.
It Is not for her mental qualifica qualifications

remembered, however, but for the
beauty and gentleness of her character.

GOOD ADVICE. GIVEN
Colored People of Ocala by (he Wife
of Hooker T. Washington
The colored people of Ocala had a
rare privilege last. night in hearing
the wife of Booker T. Washington in
an address of more than an hour at
the Mount Moriah Baptist church. The
auditorium was tastefully decorated
with cut flowers and growing plants
and a program of music. (Scripture
reading and prayer by pastors of the
various colored churches of the city
opened the- meeting.
The speaker is a woman of musual
attainments, a fine, strong reasoner,
and delivered her message in a dig
nified, impressive manner. It wai
plain from the first to see that her
heart is in her work, her only desire
being to instruct and uplift her people.
She Is easily the first woman in the
south among her race. She Is a south southerner,
erner, southerner, born and bred, and says plainly
that she is a country woman who could
never be happy in a city nor north of
the Mason and Dixon line. Although
she has been invited to address au audiences
diences audiences on sociological subjects In ev every
ery every state in the Union, she is too great
a woman to have been spoiled or de deflected
flected deflected from the one great purpose of
her life. She urged the necessity of
better, cleaner homes and more watch watchful
ful watchful care of children and young people.
She pleaded for purity and high moral
standard for the women and told in an
interesting and humorous manner why
the negroes got the worst end ef
things, because they had not deserved
better. She illustrated her speech by
several laugable anecdotes. Her sense
of the ridiculous is fine and she tells a
story well. She believes with her hus husband
band husband that the country is the best and
safest place to live and bring up child
ren and that every man should try to
own a little home. She was most force forceful
ful forceful and eloquent along the line of tem temperance,
perance, temperance, saying that "whisky had al
ways been and is the worst foe of the
race." She appealed to race pride, say
ing it was a shame that any man
should sell his vote and hit hard the
saloonkeepers who boast that they can
buy any negro's vote for 15 cents or a
drink of liquor. She told of the plans
of work and aims of the colored Wom Wom-men's
men's Wom-men's Federation of Clubs, and -urged
the organization of the women, because
In unity there is strength against evil
and for good. She is a fitting help-
