The law says when a convict who

able to work, will not work, or
! otherwise violates discipline, he

cially m the turpentine camps, are
gcod workers; they work willingly
and often make their tasks and over overtime,

work in squads frequently and vie
with one another to see who will do
the most and. best work. As a rule,
they look down on a shirker, or man
who is "soldiering" on them, for he
brings more or less discredit on the
good ones and makes their lot hard-

usually the, first to complain to the

I the mayor could not see his way clear j
to approve the ordinance providing ;
for the- acceptance of the Carnegie do- j
nation for the erection of a public li-1

The mayor bases his veto on the
ground that taxes levied for this pur- j

for the levying of taxes for municipal j

"with the class of men who guard the
convicts and see that they work.
-They are not dudes, and few of them
could qualify as college professors.
But they have their share of manly
virtues, and no more vices than men
in other callings. As long as men
will break the law, they should be
punished, and the state must put
their punishment in the hands of
men who are able to control them.
There are some convicts who are un unfortunates,
fortunates, unfortunates, and some convict guards
who are brutes. There are also
some preachers who are hypocrites
and some business men who are
swindlers. Wholesale sympathy with
criminals and hostility to their
guards is more of an injustice to the
general public than it is to the par

SIXTEEN YEARS' STRENGTH.
While a bank's strength is usually shown in

Mr. Robert Martin, one of the

to pay a number of years in advance

present rate of one dollar a year.

a library, it will be managed like

Our Ocala bankers are glad that

They haven't- studied the bill closely,

respectfully offer the following sug suggestions:
gestions: suggestions: All packages should be properly
packed, wrapped with strong paper.
and tied with twine proportionate to'
the weight and character of the con-'
tents. Each parcel should be plain- j
ly and completely addressed, show-;
ing the street address or room num-j
ber if a public building, and bearing;
in the upper left hand corner the ad-!
dress of the sender preceded by the;
word "From," and indorsed in the,

Packages may bear the words,
"Not to be opened until Christmas,"
or similar inscriptions, and this to together
gether together with early shipment insures
the timeliness of Christmas gifts;
whereas the practice of mailing pack packages
ages packages late in the hope that they will
reach their destination on Christmas
day is likely to defeat its own object,
thru unavoidable delay due to the
congestion of the mail. I
During the heaviest days of the,
season a parcel post window will be
opened at the east end of the post-j
office lobby where parcels will be ac-i
cepted for mailing upon the payment
of the postage, stamps to be affixed
later by the employes of the office.
This will be done to relieve the con congestion

Persons .desiring to insure parcels
may secure in advance tags which
they will need. These tags can be
filled out at home or place of busi business,
ness, business, and thereby avoid the necessity
of so doing in he postoffice lobby.
The insurance fee is five cents for
parcels valued at $25 or less, and 10
cents from $25 to $50. Insuied par parcels
cels parcels must be presented at the win window.

Van Vechten stared in wonder at

But Mr. Flint was not to be hurried.

it is by way of promising us a very

"It's a little village in Somerset

rural England. Still does the name
convey nothing to your mind? Think!"
Here Tom Phinney interjected:
"Ruddy thought it was confoundedly
familiar when he read the message.'
While Van Vechten tried his best to
recall the associations which the name
all but evok:;l, Mr. Flint sat shrewdly
"I give it up," declared the young
man at length. "Go on and tell it
why you jumped so when you read the

For a moment the two young men

The expression that now flitted

"Consider, Mr. Van Vechten: it'e a

"You supplied the hint," was the
quiet answer. "When you said that

a moment's reflection told me that
possession of the house could have
been obtained only in one other way,
