by the two countries, as officials are

which has cast a blight on the rela relations

Oil THE OKLAWAHA
A Tourist Letter by Miss Mary S.
Daniels, of "Our Tourist Club,"
"However limited our stay in
Florida needs must be, even though
it Involves the sacrifice of some
other favorite or coveted pleasure,
two days must be set aside, for a
trip up the romantic Oklawaha river
or we shall have missed one of the
rarest experiences the South has to
afford. From St. Augustine by rail
about one hour, thence on board the
steamer Okeehumkee of the Hart
Line; and seated in the extreme bow
of the boat on one of the observation
decks, with all the comfort that could
be wished and with immunity from
the usual vibration of steamers, we
follow up the St. Johns river twenty twenty-five
five twenty-five miles to the mouth of the Okla Oklawaha.

is the Oklawaha, and as it winds
thru great forests we seem to be
gliding into a world of weird en en-chantmen.

cry from nome unseen creature in
the woods falls on our ears.
Floating on the still, dark stream
thru this jungle of riotous under undergrowth,
growth, undergrowth, often so cjriously reflected
in the black water, we seem to be
far from the world of men. But at
intervals we pass little clearings
with a few dwellings, and now and
then we stop at a rude wharf where
we take on wood and oranges.
If ever there is an occasion where
we are disposed to grudge the time
that must be spent in anything so
prosiac and comonplace as sleep, it
is on the Oklawaha river. So wierd,
picturesque and enchanting is the
whole scene;, so grandly illuminated
at night by the fantastic torch-light;
we are reluctant to leave the deck
for our state rooms, but at last fall
asleep listening to the wild voices of
the forest and the brush of the
i branches against our windows, to
dream it all over. Like as the tour tour-rist
rist tour-rist on Mt. Rigi rises from his bed
at the first blash of dawn to watch
the sun rise over the iced capped
Alpine peaks, so did the passengers
of this boat appear on deck after a
refreshing sleep in dreamland, or
project their heads out of their
stateroom windows to view the
charming river vista and the lights
and the shadows of the early morn morning,

a visit to the Randall orange grove
at Connor, where we sampled" the

led back toward Palatka; returning
in several hours less time than it
took to come up stream an act due
to the strength of the current.

the Star was notified that St. Au Augustine

beginning to talk was told that the
Record, on account of severed wires,
couldn't be communicated with. The
Star then asked for some one who
could give information about the
fire. St. Augustine replied, "Here is
some one who can tell you," and
then, without any break in voice or
communication, so far as could be
judged, began answering the Star's
questions. The talk lasted for five
minutes and ended at 3:17. This in

such an occasion, it is very strange

A Matter of Common Honesty
The Butte Miner calls attention
to a wrong that every honest man
would like to see righted. It says:
"Of late the railways have been
having a hard time of it, what with
the interstate and state commissions
cutting down rates and making them
adopt expensive reforms for the pro protection
tection protection and convenience on the one
hand, and the continual demand for
higher wages for their employes on
the other. The government itself is
setting the example of treating these
companies very unjustly, for it is
making them carry parcel post pack
ages without any additional compen
sation for this service. Every three
or four years the postoffiee depart
ment weighs the mail for several
weeks carried by each railroad in the
United States, and the average of
this weighing" is the basis of pay
ment received by the companies for
the next term of years. Since the
parcel post went into effect there has
not been a reweighing with the re
suit that the roads have received no
compensation tor tins extra service
demanded of them by the govern
This is true, and it suggests some
things worth thinking of. To some
extent the government is taking
freight away from the railroads and
compelling them to haul it free
while it is getting the pay. The size
of the package permitted by parce
post nas oeen increased until now
the government is carrying much
that would go by freight, or, more!
properly speaking, it is making the:
railroads do the carrying while it is
getting the pay for it. Leaving this
out of consideration, however, the
government is making the railroads
work for it for nothing while it is
also, thru its commissions, restrict restricting
ing restricting them in their charges to others.
This is nothing short of robbery,
and the government cannot afford to
go into the footpad business. For
a number of months the parcel post
has been in existence, and it has al already
ready already cost the railroads millions for
which no return whatever has been
This wrong will not be rectified
merely by ceasing to practice it.
When the government begins paying
the railroads for carrying the parcel
post it will cease to rob, but it will
not be honest until it makes resti restitution
tution restitution until it pays for the work
the railroads have done since the
parcel post has been in existence.
This it will never do. Except in de degree
gree degree the delay in adjusting this mat matter
ter matter is as dishonest as would be mak
ing tne injustice permanent.
Another thing worth considering
is the fact that we can't judge what
the parcel post will cost by what it
has cost. Some day it will not be
carried free, and if it is making
money now it will not make it then.
If it is losing a little now it will lose
a great deal then.
The railroads are compelled to
discharge labor. Labor is suffering
because they are oppressed. Saw Sawmill

suffering; because the railroads, un under

"Just Earnings on Capital Stock"
At the meeting of the state rail railroad

weeks ago in the long and short

to that being held today in West

that the Seaboard Air Line Railway,
which cost $8000 and $10,000 per
mile to construct is bonded for $65, $65,-000

he feels aggrieved and indignant

steal old Doc Hoffum's horse and

swimming. Doc was visiting at our
house that day, and it looked easy to
us to drive two miles over to the
river and get cooled off and then
bring the horse and buggy back before
the old man missed them.

The vicar of Girlington, Bradford.

"Many years ago," he writes, "we
forbade the use of shawls in church.

those men I had companioned with;
they had gone the long journey, some
