In Favor of Aid for Disabled Men and

opposed to any bonuses being given to
ex-service men in the form of a gift.

Washington, Nov. 8. More than
350 alleged radicals, said to have
plotted demonstrations throughout
the country today in commemoration
of the second anniversary of the es-

taken at Thursday night's meeting.
The post is of the opinion that the
general digging into the treasury that
is now going on should cease, in order
that the already heavy debt of the
country might not be increased any
more than is absolutely necessary.
The post by the position taken wished
also to emphasize the fact that the
men who served during the war did
so for reasons of patriotism and 100
ptr cent. Americanism. Various
bonuses have been awarded to civil civilians

and it would seem that there should
be some reward for the men who were
in the army, navy and marine corps,
but the Marion county post is of the
opinion that there should be some
limit to this kind of thing.
At its, meeting Thursday night, the
post unanimously elected Miss Mary

Hospital a member of the legion, and
voted to present her with a member membership.

Though the whole world seems excited, with the rush and hustle great,
And my troubles hang over me while I sit and watch and wait;
Yet there 're other things that claim me, and no twings of conscience calls,
At the duties I'm neglecting, while the twilight round me falls;
For I'm dreaming of the old times, with their scenes so pure and rare,
Where the gulf breeze sweeps the brown rocks, by the grouper hole out there,
Where the lighthouse winks and flashes, and the car mires to the hub
On the place called Vassey Island at the old Bonito Club!
I can see the boys now gathering at the call of Steward Weik
'Come and get it on the table!" every one is on the hike;
I can almost hear the rattle of the ivory poker chips,
And the shuffle of the cardboards, as the deck he slowly strips;
And I catch the faint aroma of the steward's faithful pipe,
That recalls a field of cabbage, which are slightly overripe!
And I hear the merry jesting, as the table's cleared away,
For the evening social session at Bonito, on the bay!
And I wish I too, was with you, where the mind could be at ease;
I would love to hear Tuck swearing and old Johnny Spencer sneeze;
I would love to hear old Porty give discourse on auto tires,
And to tell how all the dealers were a set of thieves and liars;
Yet somehow he'd always make them bow and yield to his demands,
Paying for each tire he blew out, e'en though worn from rocks and sands;
I would like to hear him tell Hodge, just to leave the work to him,
And he'd make those crooks and scoundrels put a new tire on each rim!
Then there's Bennett, truthful Eddie (the remembrance makes me cough),
That big fish he almost landed, but which from his hook got off;
I would love to hear him tell it; though its old, its always new,
For each time he tells the story that same fish has grown by two;
Then there's Thomas dear old Jimmy; he has always got the best;
And each time he's been out with us, he has always beat the rest;
Though the yarns he tells are silly some of them are rather stale
Y'et the prize he always captures for the latest smutty tale!
And there's Bobby Carroll, also; he that shines in every bout;
I would like to hear him saying, "John, let's keep these pikers out!"
Then I'd love to see the whole bunch grow pale as Holland gin,
As Bob checked before his time came, lean across and pull them in!
Then, there's Clark who sells the groceries; he's the one that's hard to beat;
And if I had time a plenty, I would love to watch him eat;
But the time is passing quickly, and there's others still in store;
I would like to hear Whit Palmer and old Frank H. Logan snore!
, There are many other fellows, but I have not now the time
That's required to write a story, less to put it into rhyme!
For each one of you my fellows, in my thoughts are with me still,
For there's naught can bury troubles like a trip to Vassey will;
Yet I have one further longing that is all that's left to me
I would like to give my lecture, on the broad and open sea;
I would love to dwell on nature tell of winds, and moon and stars
And the dangers that beset you just beyond the outer bars!
But my dream, I fear, is ended thoughts like these can never last;
Yet the memory of those old days often draw me to the past,
Where life's burdens all were buried at the crossing of the stream,
That leads out to Vassey Island, where the fireflies nightly gleam;
Where the wind is ever blowing, and the tide waves surge and foam,
'Gainst the rocks that skirt the island, where we built our second home!
And I long to be among you, and I'm hoping day by day,
That I soon may see your faces, at Bonito, on the bay!
But time's recompense is fullest, and my boat glides swiftly on,
To the day we all shall gather on the shore at break of dawn!
Though it be a land of hunters, where the dog joins in the chase,
Or of walls of gold and jaspar, and an ever resting place!
Where the angels sing the chorus to the strains of harps of gold,
And the trumpet peals the message that the half has not been told;
Though the many meet together though there be a chosen few
May the ones I meet up yonder, be just half as true as you!

$1,500,000 for macadamized roads. I

the facts, include in the data being
prepared, information in response to
the following inquiries:
1. Will any part of the funds pro
vided by the state for the construc construction

applied to the construction and main maintenance

of incorporated cities and towns?
2. Will any part of the funds

issue be applied to such construction
and maintenance of highways thru
the limits of incorporated cities and
3. If no part of the state funds,
and no part of the proceeds of the
bond issue is to be so applied, what
means are contemplated to prevent
skips or breaks in highways passing
through such incorporated cities and

If the contemplated roads passing
through municipalities should not be
of uniform width, construction and
material, I fear that the full benefits
sought to be accomplished may not be
realized. Some of the municipalities,
even with' the aid of the assessment
against abutting property owners,
could not afford the expense incident
to the construction of paved or ma macadamized

sense that they revealed lack of knowl knowledge

the standards of that day being suited
to the culture of the time.
And a great advance had beea mtde
over the days of Chaucer. In the days
of Addison. Johnson, Swift, Congreve
and Goldsmith we find a great advance
