The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

but for the war.
If Marion county goes dry today,

will keep it dry. If it remains wet,
it is. ready to carry the standard in
the next campaign, which will surely

We do not know what the result of

Star is glad that it has taken its
stand, and has no intention or desire
to recede from it.
We have tried to follow out a clean
and liberal policy in this campaign
we have avoided bitterness and per personalities

to principles and events. Of course,
we can't make our saloon friends see
it that way. We have attacked their
business and some of their practices,
and when you attack a man'3 business
he has to be a first cousin to an angel
if he doesn't feel like you are attack attacking
ing attacking him.
Nevertheless, we are convinced
that if most of the saloon men of
Ocala were in other business, they
would applaud the Star's utterances
in regard to the reprehensible prac practices
tices practices by which they have sought to
keep themselves in business.
There is much good in some saloon
men, but there is not any good in the
saloon business. It is not so bad in
some places as it is in others, but at
its best it is bad everywhere. Every
dollar and every ounce of effort put
into it is sheer, unmitigated waste.
It helps no man nor woman nor
child, and it has brought disease, dis disgrace
grace disgrace and death to untold millions. In
Ocala, the saloon business has shown
to better advantage than in almost
any other community in America.
And yet, who can point out any good
it has done the town, and what hon honest
est honest and well-informed person cannot
point out harm?
Its not only the direct waste and
misery caused by the saloon that the
Star objects to, but the practices by
which the saloon has sought to keep
itself in business. More than any
other one thing, it has corrupted the
. politics of this county and town.
Some of the older men are forget forgetting,

the stress of reconstruction times,
brought about by the carpetbaggers
(forever a term of reproach in the
south) who supported by federal
bayonets and taking advantage of the
ignorance of our newly freed slaves,
brought our state and her sister
southern states into a condition of
woe and degradation almost as bad as
that which today afflicts Belgium. It
was only by southern white men
standing and -working, and sometimes
fighting, together, that the south was I
redeemed and enabled to enter on a
career by which the two races have
lived side by side for almost half a
century in comparative peace. What
sort of a Hayti should we have had
. from the Potomac to the Rio Grande
if white men had not been faithful to
their race ideals in the late sixties and
early seventies?
And yet the saloon element, in try trying
ing trying to. retain control of Marion coun county,
ty, county, and every other county where
there, is a large negro population, has
to a considerable extent copied the
tactics of the carpefbaggers of fifty
, years ago.
The Star considers it its duty as a
democratic paper to oppose and re rebuke
buke rebuke any such practices. It sees no
reason why they should have been
reprehensible and obnoxious to good
citizens fifty years ago and excusable
The status of the negro race is dif different
ferent different today from what it was fifty
years ago. With time and education,
a large per cent of the colored people
are able to form their own views on
public affairs and are entitled to vote
free from interference. But there is
yet a considerable number hampered
with ignorance, and these, the saloon
element has always regarded as it3
peculiar property. It pays their poll
taxes, bribes them with money ahd
whisky and votes them like sheep.
Not only in wet or dry elections, but
in every ejection where an ignorant
vote can be used by a special interest
against the welfare of a whole people
is this element used to the detriment
of the better class of both races.
The Star has plenty of reason to
believe that its denunciations both of
the liquor traffic and corrupt election
practices have the unqualified ap approval
proval approval of a large majority of the
white people of Marion countyr as well
as the approval of that part of the
colored epople who are honestly and
intelligently trying to better them themselves
selves themselves and their race.- Last, but not
least, the Star has the approval of it3

International affairs, and now presents
a prospect of reorganization and re

to attempt before.
The president tells how this country
practiced neutrality and declares that
he hopes that when the time comes
for readjustment and recuperation this
country will be of infinite service. lie
ferring to Central 'and South American
problems, the president declares that 1
we should retain unabated the spirit j
which has inspired us throughout the
whole life of our government and
which was so frankly put into words
by President Monroe.
We have been put to the test in the
. case of Mexico, and we have stood the

government of our own choosing. Lib

thing, to which no boundsKean be set
and to which no bounds of a few ;
men's choosing ought ever to be set.
Every American who has drunk at j
the true fountains of principle and tra tradition
dition tradition must subscribe without reservation-
to the high doctrine of the Vir Virginia
ginia Virginia bill of rights, which in the great
days in which our government was set j
up was everywhere- among us accept accepted
ed accepted as the creed of free men. That doc
trine is, "That government Is or ought j

pie, nation or community;" that "of
all the various modes and forms of
government, that is the best which is
capable of producing the greatest de degree

danger of maladministration, and that
' when any government shall be found

hath an Indubitable, inalienable and

The moral is that the states of Amer America

censored thought that quickens It.
Conquest and dominion are not in our
reckoning or agreeable to our princi
pies. But just because we demaud un unmolested
molested unmolested development and the undis undisturbed
turbed undisturbed government of our own lives
upon our own principles of right and
liberty, we resent, from whatever
quarter It may come, the aggression we
ourselves will not practice. We Insist
upon security in prosecuting our self
chosen lines' of national development.
We do more than that. We demand it
also for others. We do not confine our
enthusiasm' for individual liberty and
free national development to 'the Inci Incidents
dents Incidents and movements of affairs which
affect only ourselves. We feel it wher
ever there 13 a people that tries to walk
In these difficult paths of independence j
and righL From the first we have
made common cause With all partisans
of liberty on this side the sea and have
deemed It as important that our neigh
bors should be free from all outside
domination as that we ourselves should
be;. have set America aside as a whole
for the uses of Independent nations and
political freemen.
Out of such thoughts grow all our
policies. We regard war merely as a
means of asserting the rights of a peo
pie against aggression. And we are
as fiercely jealous of coercive or dicta
torial power within our own nation
as of aggression from without. We
will not maintain a standing army ex except
cept except for uses which are as necessary
in times of peace as in times of war.
Increase Standing Regular Force Four
Hundred Thousand Citizen Soldiers.
But war has never been a mere mat matter
ter matter of men and guns. It Is a thing
of disciplined might If our citizens
are ever to fight effectively upon a
sudden summons, they must know
how modern fighting is done, and what
to do when the summons comes to
render "themselves immediately avail available
able available and Immediately effective. And
the government must be their servant
in this matter, must supply them with
the training they need to take care of
themselves and of it The military
arm of their government which they
will not allow to direct them, they may
properly use to serve tbem and make
their independence secure, and not
their own independence merely, but
the rights also of those with whom
they have made common cause, should
they also be put In jeopardy. Thev
must be fitted to play the great role
in the world, and particularly In this
hemisphere, for which they are quali
fied by principle and by chastened am
bition to play.
It 1s with these ideals in mind that

Have a Fleet For Defense That
Will Be "Fitted to Our Needs
and Worthy cf Our Traditions."
Greatest Danger to Country
Comes From Within Our Bor Borders.

the army adequate for its present du duties,
ties, duties, duties which it has to perform
not only upon our own continental
coasts and borders and at our interior
army posts, but also In the Philippines,
in the Hawaiian Islands, at the isth
mus and In Porto Rico.
By way of making the country ready
to assert some part of its real power
promptly and upon a larger scale
should occasion arise the plan also
contemplates supplementing the army
by a force of 400.000 disciplined citi citizens,
zens, citizens, raised In increments of 133.000 a
year throughout a period of three
years. This It is proposed to do by a
process of enlistment under which the
serviceable men of the country would
l e asked to bind themselves to serve
with the colors for purposes of train
ing for short periods throughout three
years andtto come to the colors at call
at any time throughout an additional
'furlough" period of three years. Thi Thi-force
force Thi-force of 400.000 men would be pro
vided with personal accouterments as
fast as enlisted and 'their equipment
for the field made ready to be supplied
at any time. Tneywould be assem assembled
bled assembled for training at stated intervals at
convenient places in association with
suitable units of the regular army.
Their period of annual training would
not necessarily exceed two months in
the year.
The president says It is up to the
patriotic young men of the country to
respond to this call.
Always Looked to It as Our First and
Chief Line of Defense.
The program which will be laid be-
fore you by the secretary of the navy
is similarly conceived. It involves only
a shortening of the time within which
plans long matured shall be carried
out but It does make definite and ex
plicit a program which has heretofore
been only implicit, held in the minds of.
the committees ou naval affairs and
disclosed in the debates of the two
houses, but nowhere formulated or for
mally adopted. It seems to me very
clear that It will be to the advantage
.of the country for the congress to adopt
a comprehensive plan for putting the
navy upon a final footing of strength
and efficiency and to press that plan
to completion within the next five
years. We have always looked to the
navy of the country as our first and
chief line of defense; we have always
seen it to be our manifest course of
prudence to be strong on the seas.
Year byvyear we have been creating a
navy which now ranks very high in
deed kmong the navies of the maritime
nations. We should now definitely de determine
termine determine how we shall complete what
we have begun and how soon.
The program to be laid before you
contemplates the construction within
five years of ten battleships, six battle
cruisers, ten scout cruisers, fifty de destroyers,
stroyers, destroyers, fifteen fleet submarines,
eighty-five coast submarines, four gun gunboats,
boats, gunboats, one hospital ship, two ammunl
tion ships, two fuel oil ships and one
repair ship. It Is proposed that of this
number we shall the first year provide
for the construction of two battleships,
two battle cruisers, three scout cruisers,
fifteen destroyers, five fleet submarines,
twenty-five coast submarines, two gun gunboats
boats gunboats and one hospital ship; the second
year two battleships, one scout cruiser,
ten destroyers, four fleet -submarines,
fifteen coast submarines,, one gunboat
and one fuel oil ship; the third year
two battleships, one battle cruiser, two
scout "cruisers, five destroyers, two fleet
submarines and fifteen coast subma submarines;

the fifth year two battleships, one bat battle
tle battle cruiser, two scout cruisers, ten de destroyers,
stroyers, destroyers, two fleet submarines, fifteen
coast submarines, one gunboat, one am
munition ship and one repair ship.
The secretary of the navy is asking
also for the immediate addition to the
personnel of the navy of 7.500 sailors.
2.500 apprentice seamen and 1,500 ma marines.
rines. marines. This increase would be suffi sufficient
cient sufficient to care for the ships which are
to be completed within the fiscal year
1917 and also for the number of men
which must be put in training to man
the ships which will te completed
early In 1918. It is alo necessary that
the number of midshipmen nt the Na
val academy at Annapolis should be
Increased by at least 300 in order thn.t
the force of officers should be more
rapidly added to. and authority is ask
ed to appoint, for engineering duties
only, approved graduates of engineer
Ing colleges, and for service in the avi aviation

taken from civil life.
If this full program should be carried
but we should have built or building in
1921. according to the estimates of sur

There are other great- matters which
will be thrust upcu our attention
whether" we will 01 not There-is. for
example, a very pressing question of
trade and shipping involved in this
great problem of national adequacy
It is necessary for many weighty rca
sons of uational efficiency and devel
opruent that we should have a great

merchant marine. I he great merc hant
fleet we once used to make us rich,
that great body of sturdy sailors who
used to carry our flag into every sea.
and who wire the pride and "often the
bulwark of the nation, we have almost
driven out of esisteuee by inexcusable
neglect and indifference and by a hope hopelessly
lessly hopelessly blind and provincial policy of
so called economic protection. It is
high time we repaired our mistake and
resumed our commercial independence
on the sens.
With a view to meeting these press
ing necessities of our commerce and
availing ourselves at the earliest possi possible
ble possible moment of the present unparalleled
opportunity of linking the two Ameri Americas
cas Americas together in bonds of mutual Inter Interest
est Interest and service, an opportunity which
may never return again if we miss it
now. proposals will be made to the
present congress for the purchase or
construction of ships to be owned and
directed by the government similar to
those mado to the last congress, but
modified in some essential particulars.
I recommend these proposals to you
for your prompt acceptance with the
more confidence because every month
that has elapsed since the former pro proposals
posals proposals were made has made the ne necessity
cessity necessity for such action more and more
manifestly imperative. That need was
then foreseen It is now acutely felt
and everywhere realized by those for
whom trade is waiting, but who can
find no conveyance for their goods. 1
am not si much interested in the par particulars
ticulars particulars of the program as I am In
taking immediate advantage of the
great opportunity which awaits us if
we will but act in this emergency. In
this matter, as in all others, a spirit of
commou counrel should prevail, and
out of it should come an early solu
tion of this pressing problem.
Recommends Early Adoption of Meas Measures
ures Measures Giving Them Fuller Justice.
The president recommends the early
adoption of bills for the alteration and
reform of the government of the Phil
ippines and for rendering fuller polit
ical justice to the people of Porto Rico,
which were submitted to the Sixty
third congress The president refers
to the increased cost of carrying out
the plans for the armed forces of the
nation" aud tells of the fiscal problems
confronting the government
On the 30th of June last there was
an available balance In the general
fund of the treasury of $104,170,105.78
The total estimated receipts for the"
year 1910.. on -the assumption that the
emergency revenue measure passed by
the last congress will not be extended
beyond its present limit the 31st of
December, 1915, and that the present
duty of 1 cent per pound on sugar will
kbe discontinued after the 1st of May.
1910. will be $070,305,500. The balance
of June last and these estimated rev
enues come therefore to a grand total
of $774,535,005.78. The total estimated
disbursements for the present fiscal
year, including twenty-five millions for
the Panama canal. twelvemillions for
probable deficiency appropriations and
$50,000 for miscellaneous debt redemp
tions. will be S753.S91.000. and the bal
anee in the general fund of the treas
ury will be reduced to $20,044,005.78.
The emergency revenue act If contin continued
ued continued beyond its present time limitation
would produce during the half year
then remaining about forty-one mil
lions. The duty of 1 cent per pound
on sugar if continued would produce
during the tw6 months of the fifccal
year remaining after the 1st of May
about fifteen millions. These two sums,
amounting together to fifty-six mil
lions, if added to the revenues of the
second half of the fiscal year would
yield the treasury at the end of the
year an available balance of $70,044.
The additional revenues required to
carry out the program of military and
naval preparation of which I have
spoken would, as at present estimated
be for the fiscal year 1917 $93,800,000
Those fisrures. taken with the figures
for the present fiscal year which I
have already jriven. disclose our finan
cial problem for the year 1917 As
snming that the taxes imposed by the
emergency revenue act and the pres
ent duty on sugar are to be disconttn
ued and that the balance at the close
of the present fiscal year will be only
$20.G44.005.78. that the disbursements
for the Panama canal will again be
about $25.000.(X)0 and that the add!
tional expenditures for the army and
navy are authorized by the congress
the deficit in the general fund of the
treasury on the 3Cth of June. 1917
will be nearly $235,000,000. To this
sum at Iei?t $50,000,000 should be add
ed to represent a safe working balance
for the trpnsury and $12,000,000 to In

elude the usual deficiency estimates In
1917. and these additions would make
a total deficii of some f297.O0O.00O. If
the present t:ixe should be continued
throughout this year and the next
however, there would be a balance In
the treasury of $70.5O).t:x at
the end of the present fiscal year and
a deficit at the end of the next year of

only some CoiMWMXKj. or. reckomug in
$02.000.0a) for deficiency appropria
tions and a safe treasury balance at
the end of the year. .1 total deficit of
some $112.00O.00t. The obvious moral
of the figures i that it is a plain coun
koI of prudence to continue all of the
jresent taxes or their equivalents and
confine ourselves to the problem of
providing $112,000,000 of new revenue
rather than $297,000,000.
How shall we obtain the new rev revenue?
enue? revenue? We are frequently reminded
that there are many millions of bonds
which the treasury is authorized under
existing law to sell to reimburse the
sums paid out of current revenues for
the construction of the Panama canal,
and it is true that bonds for the
amount of $222,432,000 are now avail available
able available for that purpose. Prior to 1913
$138,000,000 of these bonds had ac actually
tually actually been sold to recoup the expendi expenditures
tures expenditures at the isthmus, and now con constitute
stitute constitute a considerable Item of the pub public
lic public debt But I for one do not believe
that the people of this country approve
of postponing the payment of tiieir
bills. Borrowing money is shortsight shortsighted
ed shortsighted finance. It can be justified only
when permanent things are to be ac accomplished
complished accomplished which many generations
will certainly benefit by and which it
seems hardly fair that a single genera generation
tion generation should pay for. The objects we
are now proposing to spend money for
cannot be so classified, except In the
sense that everything wisely done may
be said to be done in the interest of
posterity as well as In our own. It
seems to me a clear dictate of pru prudent
dent prudent statesmanship and frank finance
that in what we are now, I hope, about
to undertake we should pay as we go.
The people of the country are entitled
to know just what burdens of taxation
they are to carry and to know from the
outset now. The fiew bills should be
paid by internal taxation.
Gravest Danger to Country Comes
From Within Our Own Borders.
The president says that the precise
reckonings of the problem to be met
are set forth in the report of the secre secretary
tary secretary of the treasury.
I have spoken to you today, gentle gentlemen,
men, gentlemen, upon a single theme, the thor thorough
ough thorough preparation of the nation to care
for its own security and to make sure
of entire freedonl to play the Impar Impartial
tial Impartial role In this hemisphere and in the
world which we ail believe to have
been providentially assigned to it I
have bad in my mind no thought of
any Immediate or particular danger
arising out of our relations with other
nations. We are at peace with all the
nations of the world, and there is rea reason
son reason to hope that no question in con controversy
troversy controversy between this and other gov governments
ernments governments will lead to any serious
breach of amicable relations, grave as
some differences of attitude and policy
have been and. may yet turn out to be.
I am sorry to say that the gravest
threats against our national peace and
safety have been uttsred within our
own borders. There are citizens of the
United States, I blush to admit born
under other flags, but welcomed under
our generous naturalization laws to the
full freedom and opportunity of Amer America,
ica, America, who have poured the poison of dis disloyalty
loyalty disloyalty Into the very arteries of our
national life. Who have sought to bring
the authority and good name of our
government into contempt to destroy

our politics to the uses of foreign In Intrigue.

compared with the whole number of
those sturdy hosts by which our na nation
tion nation has been enriched In recent gen generations
erations generations out of virile foreign stocks,
but it is great enough to have brought
deep disgrace upon us and to have
made it necessary that we should
promptly make use of processes of law
by which we may be purged of their
corrupt distempers.
America never witnessed anything
like this before. It never dreamed it
possible that men sworn into its own
citizenship, men drawn ot of great
free stocks such as supplied some of
the best and strongest elements of that
little, but bow heroic, nation that in a
high day of old staked its very life to
free Itself from every entanglement
that had darkened the fortunes of the
older nations and set up a new stand
ard here that men of such origins and
such free choices of allegiance would
ever turn In malign reaction against
the government and people who had
welcomed and nurtured tbem and seek
to make this proud country once more
a hotbed of European passion. A lit
tle while ago such a thing would have
seemed incredible." Because It was in incredible
credible incredible we made no preparation for
It We would have been almost
ashamed to prepare for It as if we
were suspicious of ourselves, our own
comrades and neighbors! But the ugly
and incredible thing has actually come
about and we are without adequate
federal laws to deal with it I urge
you to enact such laws at the earliest
possible moment and feel that In doing
so I am urging you to do nothing less
than save the honor and self respect
of the nation. Such creatures of pas
sion, disloyalty and anarchy must be
crushed out They are not many, but
they are Infinitely malignant and the
band of jour power should close over
them at Once. They have formed plot"
to destroy property, they have entered

into conspiracies against the neutrality
of the government they have sought
to pry into every confidential trans transaction
action transaction of the government in order to
serve interests alien to our own. It is
possible to deal with these things very
effectually. I need not suggest the
terms In which they may be dealt with.
I wish that it could be said that only
a few men. misled by mistaken senti sentiments
ments sentiments of allegiance to the governments
under which they were born, had been
guilty of disturbing the self possession
and misrepresenting the temper and
principles of the country during these
days of terrible-war, when -It would
seem that every man who was truly an
American would instinctively make it
his duty and his pride to keep the
scales of judgment even and prove him himself
self himself a partisan of no nation but his
own. But it cannot There are some
men among us and many resident
abroad who, though born and bred in
the United States and calling them themselves
selves themselves Americans, have so forgotten
themselves and their honor as citizens
as to put their passionate sympathy
with one or the other side In the great
European conflict above their regard
for the peace and dignity of the United
States. They also preach and practice
disloyalty. No laws', 1 suppose, can
reach corruptions of the mind and
heart, but I should not speak of others
without also speaking of these and ex expressing
pressing expressing the even deeper humiliation
and scorn which every self possessed
and thoughtfully patriotic American
must feel when he thinks of them and
of the discredit they are daily bringing
upon us.
What is more important Is that the
industries and resources of the country
should be available and ready for
mobilization. It is the more Impera Imperatively
tively Imperatively necessary, therefore, that we
should promptly devise means for do doing

we should give intelligent federal aid
and stimulation to Industrial and voca vocational

in the large field of our agricultural
Industry; that at the same time that
we safeguard and conserve the natural
resources of the country we should

In the meantime may I make this
suggestion? The transportation prob problem

pressing one In this country. There
has from time to time of late been rea reason

Nearly a hundred years ago, when

man stood on a dock in the East river
waiting for the arrival of a sailship
that was coming up the buy. When i
the ship arrived, was docked and the

England on her began to descend the
gangplank the young man mentioned.

to a woman with a patch over her left
eye and called upon a constable stand standing

taken to the headquarters of the watch.

a young woman who stood by threw
her arms about the man who had caus
ed the arrest and silently wept tears
of reliefwith her head on his shoulder.
Ten years before, at seventeen, she
had married Abel Williams, two years
her senior, a clerk in the counting room
of Edward Hooper, a china merchant.
They were very happy, and a little girl
was born to them. One evening when
the young' husband was playing with
his little daughter several men entered
and arrested him on a charge of em
bezzling money froci his employer.
For some time Williams was at a loss

was the defaulter and had laid his pec

trial and showed conclusively that

detectives, as there are now. After
considering the matter for some time
they gave up hope of removing the
stigma. Abel, having been a criminal,
could not secure a position and was
obliged to make a living by working
at home. He was very handy with a
knife and carved out trinkets that his
wife sold for him.
One difficulty m the way of his vin
dication was that Skinner had left New
York, and no one knew where he had
gone. His disappearance connrmed
Abel's suspicion that he was the real
criminal and had covered up his own
defalcation through the books kept by
Abel. A criminal In one case is likely
to be a criminal in other cases, and
had Skinner remained in New York
possibly he might have got Into trou trouble
ble trouble that would have explained Abel's
ruin. But Abel was not sure that Skin
ner was guilty.
While In prison one of the inmates
whose cell was directly over Abel's ap
pealed to him to assist him in making
an escape. The man cut a hole in the
floor and let himself down into Abels
cell. Abel permitted him to hide un under
der under his cot. Abel, who was employed
on the prison books and accorded spe special
cial special privileges, also consented that the
man should take advantage of them.
He thus escaped, and Abel lost his job
on -the books and was relegated to a
cell. ...
One day when Abel was at work
making a toy ship a man walked in and
stood looking at him.
"You don't remember me, he said.
I'm the man you helped to escape
from prison. I've come to pay yon for
what, you did and suffered for me. I
don't know whether you are a bad un
or a good un and don't care. I only
know that I'm bad. A pal of znin6
who has got some valuable Jewels that
he and I took together on the other
side of the big water is goin to beat
me out o' my share. I can fix it so
that he'll have to divide with you.
Abel told the man that he would not
receive stolen goods.
"Well, then." continued the Jailbird,
"I can fix it this way: There's a big re
ward offered for the property. You're
welcome to it"
Abel readily assented to this, and the
man informed him that the party was
bringing the Jewels from Paris, where
they had been stolen, to dispose of
them in America. He was a one eyed
man and readily identified. He would
rrive on a certain day and Abel could
turn him over to the authorities and
secure the reward.

Skinner. He was much changed from

Travels of a Chimne Swift.
On June 7. 1911. an adult chimney

swift fluttered down a chimney Into
tbe study of Ernest Harold Baynes in
Jleriden. N. II., and was promptly
banded and released. The band was of
the old style and bore the number 6326.
At 8 o'clock p. m. on June 15, 1912, two
chimney swifts flew from tbe chimney
into the same room of Mr. Baynes
house where the bird had been caught
a year and eight days before. And lo!
when these birds were.'fakwn in hand
and examined one of them proved to
be C32G. Remarkable as this may seem,
this diminutive creature, less than six
inches in length, had traveled hundreds
of miles to Central America or else
where in the tropics where he spent the
winter and then had made the long re return
turn return journey at the approach of sum
mer and found again the chimney of
his choice In a village in faroff New
Hampshire. And throughout his jour
neying tbe little aluminum ring had
traveled with him and had produced
not the least effect on the bird's leg.
One wonders if the swift lived al always

America. New York Post.
A Youthful Speculator.
Senator John Sherman made his first
speculation when he was a boy of six sixteen,

age of fourteen he was working for the
'Muskingum Improvement company at
$25 a month and at the age of sixteen
was superintendent of an Important
part of the work and had been ad advanced
vanced advanced to $40. During the winter he
was idle, as the canal was closed. It
was at this time that he attempted his'
speculation. Salt was very low on the
Muskingum river and very high at Cin
cinnati So John bought a lot of salt,
loaded it on a scow and started it down
the river. All went well until within
one day's float of the Ohio river, when
the thermometer went down to zero,
and the scow remained right there for
two long months. Everybody hShl a

Why the horse chestnut Is so called

hoof, and if one looks further one will

similitude of hoof and nails Is at least
