Since his first appearance in this
country several years ago as leading

Mr. Tellegen has been seen in several
plays widely different from each
other, in each and every one of the
characters of which, he has given an
interpretation that has earned for him
reputation of the most enviable
sort, and the admiration of every
theatergoer in the land.
In "Blind Youth" he assumes the
character of a young artist of Franco-
American birth, who, left to his own
resources, fails to distinguish be between

great improvements changing to oil
for fuel and installing the turbine.
One great fault the boilers it could

putting the big oil tank underground.
It's only a .matter of time when one
of the boilers goes out of commission,
and when it does the plant will have

many years before it springs a leak;
and when the oil begins to leak out
the dirt will begin to leak in; and
then the tank will be useless. The
Star thought about that disadvantage
when the tank was put in, but that
council wasn't paying any attention
to what the Star said. c

engine. It wasn't strong enough to
do the work when it was put in, it

In comparison with the turbine, these
engines use a disproportionate amount
The proper thing to do is to make
a careful estimate for another turbine
and another battery of boilers, and a
water-softening plant, and whatever
else is necessary, not only for now,
but for at least ten years to come.
All these improvements will cost
money, and the Star thinks the money
should be raised by a bond issue. We
don't believe in either raising rates or
trying to do the work piecemeal, pay paying
ing paying for it as the plant makes the
money. Rates are high enough now
if they are raised any higher there
will be no use in the city owning its
plant. The only reason we have for
owning our light and water plant is
to give the people good service for
less money. If the rates must go up
to the same paid in towns which do
not own their plants, we had better
sell our plant and get rid of the worry
of taking care of it. A bond issue
may be arranged on a basis that will
enable the bonds to be paid mostly if
not entirely out of the earnings of the
plant and adding little if any to the
taxation. But if the people continue
to own these utilities we must have
good light, strong current, good water
and plenty of it, and all at a rate
that will make it pay the people to
own them. Otherwise we will have
a breakdown, excessive insurance
rates and a lot of other evils that
will foot up higher than two or three
reasonable bond issues. )
There is something else that Satur Saturday's
day's Saturday's fire has brought to the front, i.
e., there is something seriously at
fault with the water pressure. Cer Certain
tain Certain it is there was no excuse for a low
pressure Saturday morning, for there
was much higher pressure later; also,
there has been good water pressure
at a number of small fires in the last
year. If the plant had given as effi efficacious
cacious efficacious a response to that big fire as
it has given to any one of a number
of little ones, a great quantity of
property would have been saved. In
fact, if the city government and fire
department had not been given good
reason by previous performances to
believe there was good water pressure
always, the trouble would very likely
have been looked into and remedied
before the emergency came.
It is no exaggeration to say that
the present mayor and council have
greater and more difficult problems to
solve than any of their predecessors,
and it is to be hoped they will have
the intelligent and cheerful co-operation
of a public-spirited community.
APPRECIATES SYMPATHY OF

WHY THE WATER
PRESSURE WAS WEAK
In conversation with a member of
the Star force this morning, Mr. L. B.
McKenzie, superintendent of the city
light and water plant, stated that as
is his custom when the fire alarm
was turned in Saturday morning, he
hurried to the plant to see that every everything
thing everything was working properly. Upon
his arrival, he looked at the pressure
gauge which registered 75 pounds,
indicating that the tank was prac practically
tically practically full, and that the pumps and
other machinery was working proper properly.
ly. properly. Mr. McKenzie stated that City
Clerk H. C. Sistrunk, who was at the
scene of the fire, hearing complaints
that the water pressure was not what
it should be, hurried to the plant and
also read the pressure gauge, finding
it registering 75 pounds.
Questioned as to why the pressure
was weak when the water was first
turned into the fire hose, Mr. McKen McKenzie
zie McKenzie gave this explanation: It seems
that all the water mains are in the
center of the street and the connec connection
tion connection to the fire hydrants extend to
the curbs from the mains, forming
what is termed a "blind end," with
the fire hydrant as the terminal. Mr.
McKenzie says that all the rust, scale,
gravel, trash, etc., in the water that
passes through the mains finds its
way into these "blind ends" and he
has known the accumulation to be so
great that on opening a hydrant the
water would trickle out in a small
stream until this scale, rust, etc., had
been washed out by the force behind
it, when the pressure would be good.
Mr. McKenzie's theory is that
when the water was first turned on at
Saturday morning's fire the fire hose
were clogged with this accumulation
of rust and scale in the mains and
until it could be forced through the
small opening at the nozzle end, the
water pressure was inadequate, but as
the hose became cleared the pressure
grew stronger and shortly was all
that could be expected from the direct
pressure system under which the
water plant and fire department work.

COTTON CROP OF 1922
By W. A. McRae, Commissioner of
Florida used to grow five times as
much cotton as she does inow. The
state is better off for the change from
cotton to other products. A few coun

extent, the crop of the state being for
the year 1921, approximately 15,000
bales of short staple. The growing
of long staple cotton has decreased
even at a greater ratio than short
staple. The factory which handled
long staple cotton has been moved
from Florida to Arizona.
The nation has been going through
a period of financial depression. The
states hardest hit by this depression
are those in which cotton is the lead leading

(Paper written and read by Mrs. E.
L. Carney, historian of Dickison Chap Chapter,
ter, Chapter, U. D. C, at a recent meeting of
that organization, and published by
request and vote of the chapter).
In the hearts of all Southern peo people
ple people there is an appreciation of every everything
thing everything pertaining to the history and
literature of our Southland, and in
'making the whole of this worthy
heritage, of which we are so justly
proud, the old songs and poems have
their special part.
Ours is a land of memories, a be beloved
loved beloved land with beloved poems and
songs that breathe of love and pa patriotism
triotism patriotism and high ideals.
Among the many songs written for
or about our dear Southland, the one
we call "Dixie" holds the first place
in our hearts. It is of "Dixie" that I
shall talk at this time, tho' many of
you may be "more conversant with my
subject than I am.
Many years ago, there was in the
North, a minstrel troupe, known as
"Bryant's Negro Minstrels." All of
the members were Northern men.
Some of these men had traveled in
the South, met our people, had seen
our negroes, and in this way they
had become acquainted with the South
and realized the tender feelings the
Southern people had for their negroes,
and understood in a measure the de devotion
votion devotion of the latter for the former.
Among those who had had this
good fortune was Daniel Decatur Em Em-mett,
mett, Em-mett, an Irishman, born in Mount
Vernon, Ohio. This man was particu particularly
larly particularly gifted in composing both the
words and music for songs suitable to
be used by these minstrel troupes.
"Bryant's Minstrels" were in the
city of New York during the winter
of 1859. Business seemed on the
wane, and Bryant requested Emmett
to get up something for their next
appearance, which would be within
the next few days in New York city.
He told Emmett he wanted some something
thing something new and catchy, something that
would create a real sensation in the
Of course, Emmett was deeply im impressed
pressed impressed with the fact that Mr. Bryant
thought him capable of so great an
undertaking and he was aroused to
intensest concern to prepare some something
thing something out of the ordinary.
As I have stated before, Emmett
had traveled extensively in the South.
He knew the great heart of the
South and, too, both of his parents
were Southern born, his father in
Virginia, his mother in Maryland, so
he instinctively understook to do his
best with the best facilities, and his,
to be, world-famed "Dixie Land" was
the result of his earnest efforts that
rainy Sunday afternoon in the humble
apartments, occupied by him and his
wife while in New York.
The following week this song was
given to the public by "Bryant's Min Minstrels,"
strels," Minstrels," and proved the success of
that season, and many more. Where Where-ever
ever Where-ever "Bryant's Minstrels" gave an en entertainment,
tertainment, entertainment, every one began to hum
the tune, while the chorus was lustily
sung by all the children on the streets.
There is a witchery about the "air"
of "Dixie," a something that attracts,
a something that holds. The "air" or
tune, shows the quality of Emmett's
heart, so light, so gay, so full of love;
and in the words his ardent zeal for
the South is warmly expressed, with
even a touch of pathos. The author
loved the South and he meant the
South when writing the words of
Dixie. This he clearly indicated by
the words, "land of cotton," and other
expressions of similar geographical
While "Dixie" is in truth a song
of the South and never fails to fill a
Southern audience with exuberant
joy, yet when played in any part of
the United States, or even across the
waters, it always causes a stir of un unusual
usual unusual enthusiasm among the hearers.
"Dixie" possesses a certain charm,
a peculiar fascination that makes the
tune popular wherever heard, even to
those who do not understand the real
significance of the song and music.
When our first ten thousand United
States soldiers sailed away for "some "somewhere
where "somewhere in France," it is said that
"Dixie" was the tune that broke the
awful tenseness of the last moment
and stirred the immense crowd of both
soldiers and spectators to loudest
cheers. And as long as "our boys"
were in France, they gave "Dixie" a
grand ovation whenever it was played
by the bands, and this was a frequent
It was because of the true Southern
sentiment expressed in the refrain,
"In Dixie's land IH take my stand,
and live and die for Dixie," that made
the South adopt "Dixie" for her very
The resolve to do, to dare, to die
for Southern homes found expression
in the words and tune of "Dixie." and
this song had a new birth in the South
in the fall of 1860, when the people of
the South fully determined to take
their "stand and live and die" for
their own beloved "Dixie land."
It was in the citv of Montgomery,
Ala., Feb. 18th. 1861, that "Dixie"
was first placed by a brass band. This
band was composed of Southern men,
and it headed the long procession
which escorted Jefferson Davis, the
only president of the Confederacy, to
the state house, where he took the
oath of office and delivered a splendid
Since that date this wonderful "air"
has cheered thousands on the fields of
battle, to do and "to die" for the
rights of their "Dixie land."
Albert Pike, Dr. M. B. Wharton,
Joseph Brown and others have writ written
ten written words to be sung to the tune of
Emmett's "Dixie." These beautiful
poems are more martial in sound and
more dignified in style than is the
original, but all the writers carry out
the true Southern idea and sentiment
expressed by Emmett, "to live and
die" for "Dixie."
There is and always will be, some
controversy about the respective
merits of the poems to be sung to the
tune of Emmett's Dixie. But there
will never be any difference of opin opinion
ion opinion concerning the time for that is, no
doubt, the most inspiring "air" the
musical world has ever known.
Emmett wrote words and music for
many other minstrel songs, most of
them long since forgotten, while his
"Dixie" is really immortal. One might
as well put a feather cable to a straw
in a whirlwind as to imagine that
Emmett's "Dixie" will ever die.

Rev. Washington Gladden Was Able
to Recall Humorous Response
He Made During Sleep.
Many of us have dreamed of writ writing
ing writing a poem, delivering a speech or
making a witty remark, that seemed j gS.
at the time wonderfully brilliant, but i
that, recalled on waking, proved to be
either commonplace or wholly mean- &c'i
ingless. That is not always the case,
however, as a story once told by the
Rev. Washington Gladden proves.
He dreamed that the old house that
formerly stood near his church was
still there, and that old Mr. Deshler,
who had been dead many years, still
lived In it. Doctor Gladden also knew
that his old dog, George, who never
failed to bark at the minister when he
passed the house, still lived. In the
dream Doctor Gladden was passing the
house when the door opened and the
old gentleman came out, followed by
George, who, as usual, rushed barking
up to Doctor Gladden.
"Now, now, George," said the old
man, "you ought not to do that. You
know that's a friend of ours; thafs
"Oh I have met George before,"
responded Doctor Gladden in his
dream. "In fact George and I have
