from ttie St. Petersburg Times:
It was a wise man who invented the

oodly dose of adverse criticism but
any idea or project that is not met
with objections is not worth much.
The mid-week half holiday even to to-ay

a thought for others than themselves.
Way back in history, before our
me, a wise man sprung this upon his
people: "All work and no play makes
Jack a dull boy."
After that idea had been bantered
and batted around for many years, be-
oming sadly dog-eared, a wise busi
ness man, pernap ne was a depart depart-nent
nent depart-nent store owner, suddenly saw the
ight. The fog lifted and the mean-
ng of the phrase became as clear as
it was meant to be.
Forthwith he caused to be posted
upon the bulletin board of his store
or factory, a notice reading that
starting early in May and continuing
hrough the hot summer months, all
employes would be given a half holi
day, with pay, until further notice.
Thereafter the wise business man
saw a change come over, his vast
number of employes. The half holi
days spent on the seashore or lake
shore, on the golf links, tennis Courts
r the motor road and at whatever
place the employes sought recreation,
had refreshened his clerks and book
keepers, his laborers and mill work-
rs,. his stenographers and scores of
others on the pay roll.
They returned to work on the next

bigger and better production with
fewer mistakes and it was not long
after that that other business men

NATHAN MAYO, REPRESENTATIVE FROM MARION COUNTY
Who Did Good Work for Marion In
The Present Legislature And
Re-election to the Next
Above are the cheerful lineaments
of Nathan Mayo of Summer-field, who
made Marion county an excellent rep representative
resentative representative at the last session of the
legislature, and, at the instance of a
large number of bis friends, asks the
people for re-election.
Mr. Mayo was born in Edgecombe'
county, S. C, but came to Marion
county in 1887, when a mere boy, and
has been with us ever since. After
finishing his school days, he went into
business in Ocala. About a score of
years ago, he wooed and won Miss
Nora Newsom, daughter of that good
physician, Dr. W. V. Newsom, whose
name for skill and faithfulness in
healing will ever live in the memory
of his friends. Soon after the wedding,
.he young people removed to Sum Sum-merfield,

Sumter. He was for awhile county
commissioner, but the pressure of his
business was too "great to allow him
to remain m office. He has been a
eading factor in the work for better
roads, better schools and the Marion
County Fair. It was on the earnest
solicitation of many prominent citi- j
zens that he consented to stand for I
representative in 1920. He had no
opposition and at Tallahassee did j
good work for his county and all the
state. He was one of the quiet, steady
workers, seldom making a speech,
generally confining his remarks on the
floor to a few pithy sentences, but
assiduous in committee rooms and
studying the merits and demerits of

Mr. Mayo made such a good record
in the House, and is so well known in
Sumter as well as Marion, that many
asked him to stand for the Senate in
this year's primary. He, however,
declined, feeling that it was Sumter's
time to send a man to Tallahassee.
He did not intend to stand again for

thing. And I knew, by the way h

And how hJalked! He asked rn

fast, and how old was I, and did I en

tie he was really thinking what he wai
saying. He knows school closed age
ago. Wasn't he teaching me himself
the last of it, too? All around us were
flowers and birds, and oU so many,
many lovely things. But he never said
a word about them.. He Just talked
because he'd got to talk. I knew It,
and it made me laugh Inside, though
all the while It maue me sort of want
to cry, too. Funny, wasn't It?
After a time he didn't talk any more,
but just walked on and on ; and by and
by we came home.
Of course. It wasn't awfully jolly
that walk wasn't ; and I guess Father
didn't think It was either. Anyhow,
he hasfft asked me to go again this
week, and he looked tired and worried
and sort of discouraged when he got
back from that one.
But he's asked me to do other
things. The next day after the walk
he asked me to play to him. Yes, he
asked me to; and he went into the
parlor and sat down on one of the
chairs and listened while- I played
three pieces. Of course, I didn't play
loud ones, nor very fast ones, and 1
was so .scared I'm afraid I didn't play
them very well. But he was very po polite
lite polite and said, "Thank you, Mary," and,
"That was very nice"; then he stood
up and sald"Thank you" again and
went away Into the library, very po polite,
lite, polite, but stiff, like company.
The next evenii.g lie took me out to
the observatory to see the stars. That
was lovely. Honestly I had a perfect perfectly
ly perfectly beautiful time, and I think Father
did, too. He wasn't stiff and polite
one bit. Oh, I don'i mean that he was
Impolite or rude. It's Just that he
wasn't stiff as if I wns company. And
he was so happy with his stars and
his telescope, and so glad to show
them to me oh. I had a beautiful
time, and I told him so; and he looked
real pleased. But Aunt Jane came for
me before I'd had half enough, and I
had to go to bed.
The next morning I thought he'd be
different, -somehow, because we'd had
such a lovely time together the night
before. But he wasn't. He just s,aid,
"Good morning. Mary," and bean to
read his paper. And he read his pa paper
per paper all through breakfast without say
ing another word to me. Then he got
up and went into the library, and I
never saw him again all day except
at dinner-time and supper-time, and
then he didn't talk to me.
But after supper he took me out
again to see the stars, and he was
just' as nice and friendly as could be.
Not a bit like a man that's only a
father by order rf the court. But the
Well and that's the way it's been
all the week. And that's why I say
he's bet-n so queer. One minute he'll

could ask anybody to be. j and the very
next he's looking r!;!it ; through you
as if lie didn't sec you at all. and you

yet myself. Tet it's so. My trunk Is
all packed, and I'm to go home tomorrow.-
- This Is the way It happened:
Mother wrote Aunt Jane and asked
If I might not be allowed to come
home for the opening of school In
September. She said she understood
quite well that she hsr4 no right to
ask this, and, of course, if they saw
fit, they were entirely within their
rights to refuse to aliow me to go un until
til until the allotted time. But that she
couW not help asking it for my sake,
on account of the benefit to be derived
from being there at the opening of
the school year.
Of course, I didn't know Mother was
going to write this. But she kne

ten written "every few minutes," as she asked
me to. (That was a Joke, anyway, of
course.) But I have written every few
days, and, as I said before, I told her
Well, when the letter came I took It
to Aunt Jane myself; and I was crazy
to know what was In It, for I recog recognized
nized recognized the writing, of course. But Aunt
Jane didn't tell me. She opened. It,
read It, kind of flushed up, and said,
"Humph 1 The Idea !" under her breath,
and put the letter in her pocket.
Marie wanted to make a scene and
Insist on knowing, what was In her
own mother's letter; but Mary con contented
tented contented herself with looking superb and
haughty and disdainful, and marching
out of the room without giving Aunt
Jane the satisfaction of even being
asked what was In that letter.
But at the table that noon Aunt
Jane read it to Father out loud. Sc
that's how 1 came to know Just what
was in it. She started first to hand It
over to him to read ; but as he put eul
his hand to take it I guess he saw
the handwriting, for he drew back
quickly, looking red and queer.
"From Mrs. Anderson to you?" hi
asked. And when Aunt Jane noddec
her head he sat still farther back It
his chair and said, with a little wav
of his hand, "I never care to read read-other
other read-other people's letters."
Aunt Jane said, "Stuff and nonsense
Charles, don't be silly!" But sh
pulled back the letter and read lt lt-after
after lt-after giving a kind ot an uneasj
glance in my direction.
"Father never looked up once whil
she was reading It. He kept his eyei
on his plate and the baked beans h
wasating. I watched him. You see
I knew, by Aunt Jane's reading th
letter to him, that it was sometblnf
he had got to decide; and when I
found out what it was, of course I
was just crazy. I wanted to go so.
So I watched Father's "face to see If
he was going to let me go. But I
couldn't make out. I couldn't make
out at all. It changed oh, yes, It
changed a great deal as she read ; but
I couldn't make out what kind of a
change It was at all.
- Aunt Jane finished the letter and I
began to fold It up. I could see she
was waiting for Father to speak ; but
he never said a word. He kept right
on eating beans.
Then Aunt Jane cleared her throat
"You will not let "her go, of course,
Charles; but naturauy I had to read
the letter to you. I will write to Mrs.
Father looked up then.
"Yes," he said quietly; "and you
may tell her, please, that Mary will
Aunt Jane said that. But I I al almost
most almost ran around the table and hugged
him. (Oh, how I wish he was the kind
of a father you could do that to !)
"Charles I" said Aunt Jane again.
"Surely you aren't going to give In so
tamely as this to that child and her
Tm not giving In at all, Jane," said
Father, very quietly again. "I am con consulting
sulting consulting my own wishes in the matter.
I prefer to have her go."
I 'most cried out then. Some way.
It hurt to have him say It like that,
right, out that he wanted me to go.
You see, I'd begun to think he was
getting so he didn't mind so very much
having me here. All the last two
weeks he'd been different, really dif different.

go on with what happened at the table.
And, as I said, I did feel bad to have

right up In my throat.
Then Aunt Jane spoke, stiff and dig dignified.

Aunt Jane actually jumped. And I
guess I did, too. He had sprung to

ter matter once for all. I am not letting-the
child go for my sake. I am letting
her go for her own. o far as I am
concerned. If I consulted no one's
wishes but my own, I should keep
her here always."
With that he turned ana strode from
the room, leaving Aunt Jane and me
just staring after him.
But only for a minute did I stare.
It came to me then what he had said
that he would like to keep me here
always. For I had heard it, even If he
had said the last word very low, and
In a queer, Indistinct voice. I was
sure I had heard It, and I suddenly
realized what It meant. So I ran fter
him ; and that time. If I had found
him, I think I would have hugged him.
But I didn't find him. He must have
gone quite away from the house. He
wasn't even out to the observatory. I
went out to see.
He didn't come In all the afternoon.
I watched for that, too. And when he
did come welL I wouldn't have dared
to hug him then. He had his very
air, and he Just came In to supper and
then went into the library without say saying
ing saying hardly anything. Yet, some way,
the look oa his face made me cry. I
don't know why.

he's been trying to make up for Carrie

think that's why he took me to walk
that day In the woods, and why he
took me out to the observatory to see
the stars quite a number of times.
Twice he's asked me to play to him.
and once he asked me if Mary wasn't
about ready to dress up In Marie's
clothes again. But he was joking
then, I knew, for Aunt Jane was right
there in the house. Besides, I saw the

When I Am Both Together.
Well, I came last night Mother and
Grandfather and Aunt Hattle and
Baby Lester all met me at the station.
And, my! wasn't I glad to see them?
Well, I Just guess I was
I was specially glad on account of
having such' a dreadful time with Fa Father
ther Father that morning. I mean, I was
feeling specially lonesome and home homesick,
sick, homesick, and not-belongimr-anywhere like.
Tou see, it was this way: I'd been
sort of hoping, I know, that at the last,
when I came to really go, Father
would get back the understanding
smile and the twinkle, and show that
he really did care for me, and was
sorry to have me go. But, dear me!
Why, he never was so stern and sol solemn,
emn, solemn, and you're-my-daughter-only-by-the-order-of-the-co"urt
sort of way as
he was that morping.
He never even spoke at the breakfast-table.
(He wasn't there hardly
long enough to speak, anyway, and he
never ate a thing, only his coffee I
mean he drank it.) Then he pushed
his chair back from the table and
stalked out of the room.
He went to the station with me;
Jut he didn't talk there much, only to
ask if I was sure I hadn't forgotten
anything, and was I rarmly clad.
Warmly -clad, Indeed And there It
was still August, and hot as It could
be I But that only goes to show how
absent-minded he was, and how little
be was really thinking of me!
Well, of course, he got my ticket and
checked my trunk, and did all those
proper, necessary things; then we sat
down to wait for the train. But did
he stay with me' and talk to me and
tell me how glad he had been to have
me with him, and how sorry he was
to have me go, and all the other nice,
polite things, 'mosf everybody thinks
they've got to say when a visitor goes
away? He did not. He asked me
again If I was sure I had not left any
thing, and was I warmly clad; then he
took out his newspaper and began to
read. That is, he pretended to read;
but I don't believe he read much, for
he never turned the sheet once; and
twice, when I looked at him, he was
looking fixedly at me, as If he was
thinking of something. So I guess he
was just pretending to read, so he
wouldn't have to talk to me.
But he didn't even do that long, for
he got up and went over and looked at
a map hanging on the wall opposite,
and at a big time-table near the other
corner. Then he looked at his watch
again with a won't-that-train-ever-comef
air, and walked back to me and
sat down. --
And how do you suppose I felt, to
have him act like that before all those
people to show so plainly that he was
just longing to haVe me go? I guess he
wasn't any more anxious for that train
to. come than I was. And it did seem
as if It never would come, too. And
It didn't come for ages. It was ten
Oh, I did so hope he wouldn't go
down- to the Junction. It's so hard to
be taken care of "because it's my duty,
yoa know !" But he went. I told him
he needn't, when he was getting on
the train with me. I told him I Just
knew I could do It beautifully all by
myself, almost-a-young lady like me. j
But he only put his lipa together hard,
and said, cold, like Ice: "Are you then
so eager to be rid of me?" Just as If
I was the one that was eager to get
rid of somebody!
Well, as I said, he went. But he
wasn't much better on the train than
he bad been in the station. He was as
nervous and fidgety as a witch, and he
acted as If he did so wish it would be
over, and over quick. But at the
Junction at the junction a funny thing
happened. He put me on the train,
just as Mother had done, and spoke to
the conductor. (How I hated to have
him do that! Why, Tm six whole
months older, 'most, than I was when
I went up there!) And then, when
he'd put me in my seat (Father, I
mean ; not the conductor), all of a sud sudden
den sudden he leaned over and kissed me;
kissed me Father! Then, before I
could speak, or even look at him, he
was gone; and I didn't see him again,
though It must have been five whole
minutes before that train went.
I had a nice trip down to Boston,
though nothing much happened. This
conductor was not near so nice and
polite as the one I had coming up;
and there wasn't any lady with a
baby to play with, nor any nice young
gentleman to loan me magazines or
buy candy for me. But it wasn't a very
lone ride from the junction to Boston,
anyway. So I didn't mind. Besides.
I knew I had Mother waiting for me.
