THE ENEMIES IN
v OUR VOCABULARY
(By Orison Marden)
Did you ever think that many of
the words and phrases which yoa con con-stanly
stanly con-stanly use are your real enemies,
that they leave heir hideous pictures
and black shadows in your mind? "In
the dictionary of fools we find 'I
can't' very often, plenty of 'if s,' lots
of words like luck and 'destiny,' and
phrases like 'if I only had time or a
chance like other people.' How many
times have you been kept from doing
a good deed by such phrases as "Oh,
I know I can't do that," "Somebody
else can do that a great deal better,"
"I am Afraid to try." "I haven't the
courage," "I fear I shall take cold or
catch some disease if I do this or
I believe that those two words "I
can't" have ruined more prospects
and have kept more ability doing tbe
work of mediocrity than any otbe
two words in our language.
Did you ever know a person who
has a great many "I can'ts" in his vo vocabulary
cabulary vocabulary to accomplish very much?
Some people are always using the
words, "Oh, I can't afford to go there;"
"I can't undertake euch a hard task,
let somebody, .else d. that." "I am

tion, ambition, a cooler of enthusiasm. All
achievement and all; efficiency depend
upon initiative, and that is easily
killed by the fear words, the words
which express doubt and uncertainty.
"By thy words thou shalt be justi justified,
fied, justified, and by thy words thou shalt be
condemned." Every person indicates
his strength or his weakness by the
preponderance of strong or weak
words in his habitual vocabulary.
Negative, weak words, words of doubt,
uncertainty or hesitation, predomi predominate

man; while the positive, plus, crea creative,

which indicate mental dominion, pre prevail

vigorous, progressive character, as
they did in Webster's vocabulary.
Did you ever think that every time
you say "I can't" you weaken your
confidence in. yourself and your
power to do things? Confidence is
the greatest factor in achievement
Self-faith is a powerful asset, better
than money capital without it. No Nobody
body Nobody believes in the youth who thinks
he cannot do things, who has no con confidence
fidence confidence in himself, no faith in his
ability, because everybody knows
that he cannot do a thing until he
thinks he can. He must first believe
in himself, must be convinced that he
can accomplish it.
' I know a young man who seems
very ambitious in a general sort of
way, but when the opportunity which,
perhaps, he had been working a long
time for, comes, he wilts, his stamina
oozes out, his ambition wavers, and
he does not feel equal to it He does
not have faith in himself equal to his
ambition. Of course his life is a dis disappointment.

wants to give a decided opinion, who

or that he is afraid, the man who does
not dare to begin things, who shrinks
from responsibility, or who always
thinks he cannot do this or that, is
not the man for great responsibility.
But the man who says, I can do the
thing, and I will," the man who be believes
lieves believes in himself and in his ability to
carry through what he undertakes is
the masterful man the one who wilj
do things, not dream about them.

vote to the right and opposite said

- Sheriff Galloway has incurred the

that the election of any of the other1
candidates will bring them immunity.
.' So far as the Star knows, none of
the candidates have violated political
ethics in this campaign. They have
all been courteous to each other, but
some of their friends have not been
so correct. A story has been circu circulated

candidates for sheriff, has been ar ar-rested'for

The conviction and fining of a. New
York man who desecrated the Amer American
ican American flag might have been consistent
ten years ago. At present, after
watching Mexicans wipe spittoons

national emblem for three years, it
looks like blanked foolishness to
punish one of our own citizens for do doing

The, request of the railway em employes

real work of railroading and in their
hands is the safety, convenience and
comfort of millions of people. .Their
work is dangerous and exacting, and
it ; is to the interest of the public as
well asr, their own that they have a

V: Owing to the large number of can candidates

what the guarantees were for the oil
engine, and the engineer stated that
the manufacturers guaranteed greater-efficiency
than called for by the
specifications. The oil engine, he
said, would start in three miiuites
from nothing to full load.
G. W. Gibbs Jr., of the Gibbs Gas
Engine Co. of Jacksonville, agent
for the De La Vergne engine and suc successful
cessful successful bidder for the oil engine, and
cooling tower, told council that the
De La Vergne people were the largest
manufacturers of oil engines in the
world, and that they would make good
every claim and every guarantee. The
De La Vergne engines, he said, are
used almost exclusively by the United
States government, and by such large
concerns as the Standard Oil com company.
pany. company. Mr. Gibbs said that the De La
Vergne was the only engine that
would burn the cheapest grade of
Mexican crude oil. He said that the
engine was in use in something like
28 plants in Florida. He pointed out
that the bid of the Gibbs Gas Engine
company was for the oil engine and
the cooling towers Leave the cooling
tower out, he said, and his bid was
right in line with the other bids made
to the city. f
Mr. Gibbs discussed the questions
which had risen with regard to the
plant of the Daytona Light .& Power
company. He said that it was true
that there had been much trouble
wih the De La Vergne engines in this
plant, but that the engines were now
running smoothly. The trouble was
due, among other causes, t the use
of an engine too small for the work I
and in connection with machinery
not adapted to the work, and he said
that at one time the engines were
operated by an inexperienced negro,
and at another by a mere boy.
Mr. Gibbs said that Mr. Sholtz,
president of the Daytona company,
had threatenedto warn Ocala and any
other place contemplating the instal installation
lation installation of De La Vergne engines. This
threat, Mr. Gibb? said, was due to
Mr. Sholtz' anger at the De La Vergne
company exerting pressure upon the
Daytona company in the carying out
of a contract. Mr .Gibbs told coun-
cil that Mr. Gilmore, engineer" for the;
Daytona plant, had said that he had j
been given a paper to sign to the!
effect that the -De La Vergne engines'
were impracticable. Mr. Gilmore said j
that he knew this to be inaccurate and j
did not want to sign the paper, ac- j
cording to Mr. Gibbs. i
Mr. Gibbs said that; the De La
Vergne engine had been used in com competition

gine. engine. He said that the oil engine was
more economical than any steam en engine,
gine, engine, with the exception of certain
large steam turbines. He said, that,
with all due respect to Mr. Henney,
the oil engine in the new plant would j
prove to be very much more econom-j
ical than the unaflow steam engine.:
Mr. Henney said he hoped that this
would be the case, but that he still j
believed that the oil engine would
have to hump itself to keep up with
the steam machine.
In answer to a question .regarding
the cost per K. W. hour of producing j
current in the new plant, Mr. Henney j
stated that the oil engine alone could!
not be considered in the matter. He!
J said all the overhead costs would have
to be taken into consideration. Ask Asked
ed Asked by Councilman Tompkins whether
there was any guarantee as to what it
would cost to make current, Mr. Hen-r
ney stated that obviously no one could
make any guarantee of this kind, say saying
ing saying that there was no certainly as to
how and by who the machinery
would be handled.
Mr. Meffert called attention to the
fact that when the subject of building
a new light and water plant was first
discussed, the light and water com committee,
mittee, committee, of which Mr. Roess was chair
man at that time, in connection with;
engineers employed by the city, had
worked out the approximate cost of j
current per K. W. hour, which, hej
stated was a matter of record. The
committee estimated that current
could be generated at three-quarters
of a cent per K. W. hour.

along she nudged Tim and mocked,
"Class, real class, Tim."
They walked on in silence tor fife
minutes. "Say, Tim," Polly broke the
silence. "I've been thinking that you
would like me better if I looked like
one of these Brewster girls.'
' "Aw, shucks' was Tim's rejoinder.
MI like you Just the way you are or
I wouldn't been : so crazy to marry
you. Say, Polly, did you get that?"
And Timothy, whistled lightly to reg
ister his approval of the short-skirted,
pink-clad blonde who was passing on
the opposite side of the street.
At eight the next morning, Timothy
and his uncle left the breakfast table
and strolled to the veranda.
"I might as well wait here with you,'
said the uncle. "You won't want to
start out till the women -folks get the
things 'done up' inside.1"
But Polly had, a hasty whispered
conversation with Timothy's aunt. It
met with the elder woman's approval
and by the time Timothy and ; his
uncle were ; comfortably settled in
their veranda chairs she was hurrying
down the back alley.
, nTes, uncle," Timothy was saying,
'she's a real old-fashioned girl, she
is. There isn't many girls who would
have done what she did saved all
her egg money to spend on the sep
arator and incubator and things. She's
a kind of plain, dresser, but a fellow
can't get everything in one package.
And I sure am awful fond of her."
By this time Polly had reached
Brewster's leading department store.
In a quarter of an hour, with a light
er purse, she went to the shoe store.
Next she visited the corsetiere, and
finally the hairdresser.
At noon, Timothy was still sitting
on the front porch. Once or twice
during the morning his aunt had come
to tell him that Polly would be ready
soon, but he was becoming uneasy.
Then his uncle returned from his work
and they sat waiting for dinner to be
announced. '.. :.C-v- Y'

"Polly, Polly," he gasped, and Polly
slid gracefully into the chair next to

off her finery, her arms outstretched
so that no detail of her transforma

"Is it class?" she asked, assuming
a tone of mock anxiety, and then Tim

his arms and drew the ruffles and gew

I RELY ON THE VOTERS WHO
THINK FOR THEMSELVES.
Air. Catts praclaims his election in ad advance
vance advance because he counts all the fishermen
and all the members of certain well-known
organizations for him. 1
. It is a fact easily ascertainable that not
all the fishermen nor. all the members of
these organizations are for Mr. Catts. It is
apparent to all thinking men that neither
of these two classes of voters will permit
themselves to be voted like so many sheep.
I am not relying' on any interest, class
or organization. I RELY ON VOTERS
WHO THINK FOR THEMSELVES.
Mr. Catts is proving a great political
asset to some of my opponents.
Friends of Mr. Knott are insisting that
he alone can beat Catts; and friends of Mr.
Farris are urging that he is the one man :
who can save the country from Catts. To
them Catts is a Godsend. He makes them
such a fine "booger man
In advancing these arguments they
concede to Mr. Catts a strength which I
have failed to find. ?
I am not making a specialty of beating
Catts. I PROPOSE TO BEAT THEM ALL;
BUT IF YOU WANT TO BEAT CATTS,
VOTE FOR ME AND YOU WILL MAKE
Mr. Farris relies on the great lead, that
he says is assured him an Jacksonville and
Tampa, to give him the benefit of a handi handicap
cap handicap that can not be overcome.
I am not relying on Jacksonville or Tam Tampa

I RELY ON VOTERS WHO THINK

from the highest type of citizens and THE

Mr. Knott according to a statement pub published

Governor ex-Governor William Sherman Jennings, in a
paper in Miami, my home town appears to

The editor of the Democrat asked Hon.
Don; C McMulIen, yesterday, to give his
opinion on the eligibility of Hon. Fred M.
Hudson for governor.

my mind is absurd, and its use as campaign
material is unfair.
The election occurs on the first Tuesday

Hudson's term expires that day. But the.

term as senator doesn't expire until mid midnight,

twilight of his senatorial term still lingers.
This causes an overlapping of the terms of

term expired on the first Tuesday after the

Hudson continued to be senator for five or
