(Palatka Times-Herald)
That old saying about "the trouble!
with the liar is that once he gets the
habit he will tell 'em even if he knows
he will get caught up with," surely
must have been intended for Rev.
Catts,' who "tells 'em" by the whole
Now, take that speech Rev. Catts
delivered here and that was made
after friends had ordered the "soft
pedal put on" and the anarchy spiel
cut out. From beginning to end it
was a mass of misstatements. In our
report we took the liberty to show the
absolute untruthfulness of some of
his wild utterances, and the absurdity
of several of his statements.
One of the richest things, however,
was the harrowing picture the hero
painted of Florida in the event of Mr.
Knott's election. Mr. Knott who is a
consistent member of the Baptist
church and a man whose public and
private character is of the purest
order, is transformed by Catts into a
tyrannical monster who would put
Florida in chains at the bidding of the
Roman hierarchy whatever that' is.
Then Rev. Catts cites Pensacola as an
example of what we might expect
along this line. In his Palatka speech
be' said that Pensacola had a special
aw, passed by the Catholics, prohibit
ing the offering of a prayer or the
singing of a hymn in the public
schools the penalty for violating the
act being a fine of $25.
In telling this yarn Hero Catts was
extremely dramatical. He pathetical pathetically
ly pathetically told how a young lady teacher,
beautiful and pious, might not only
want to open school with prayer, but
with singing a hymn. He quoted a
few favorite lines from those touch
ing, soul-inspiring .songs, "Nearer My
God to Thee," "Rock of Ages," and
others, and then tearfully told of the
dire consequences that would follow
such a heinous infraction of the law
( ?) in that city.
Now, Rev. Catts probably thought
that as he was several hundred miles
from Pensacola, he could tell this pa pathetic
thetic pathetic story and get away with it.
Doubtless many of the more gullible
ones swallowed it, but some who had
heard of Sidney J.'s fondness of the
untruth were a bit doubtful, though
they, too, were deeply touched by the
heart-rending story. A prominent
citizen a sort of "doubting Thomas"

The city of Pensacola has no such

is alleged to have stated.

president of Whitworth College wrote
to the United States commission of
education to know the best southern
college to which to send his daughter
for the most thorough course in home

the Florida State College for Women.

Davis taught in the schools of Car- i

is most highly commended by all the
school officials. It is hoped that the
expression department will receive
the patronage which the preparation
and experience of Mrs. Davis merit.
The trustees recommended that a
department of music be added this
term, music being a part of the
course of every progressive public
school system. The addition of this
department entails no extra expense,
except for the securing of a piano.
The director will give instruction in
public school music in each of the
grades below the high school, will
train a chorus class and will conduct
all musical exercises of the school.
For this she will be provided with a
piano and a room in which to teach
and will receive for her remuneration
the tuition of her piano pupils. Miss :
Pauline Magness of Nashville, Tenn.,
has been selected as director of muic.
In preparation for the teaching of
piano she has had an extended course

and Leipsic conservatories. For the

When we learn that Josephus Dan Daniels,

The Augusta Chronicle drily re remarks:

trying to draw comfort from the fact
that the democratic vote in Maine

According to recent reports W. S.
Gilbreath, field secretary of the Dixie
Highway Association, has resigned
his position. Mr. Gilbreath has been
identified with the association since
its organization. He traveled almost
constantly over the great roadway,
and was well known from Chicago to
Miami. His giving up the work is
principally due to the fact that acting
as field secretary of the Dixie High Highway
way Highway association kept him away from
his home most of the time.

of the Dixie Highway association, has
made its appearance in magazine
form, and will hereafter be published

Queer news comes from Fulton

candidate for solicitor general .of the

guilt, and wrote a letter to Governor
Slaton urging him to commute
Frank's sentence. This letter was
printed in circular form and scattered
broadcast as an argument against
Boykin during the recent primary

About a dozen years ago, H. G.
Wells, in one of his inimitable fore-
'casts, told of strange machines to be
used in some future war. They were
huge auto trucks, sheathed in armor
impervious to rifles and light artil artillery,
lery, artillery, and traveling on pedrail wheels
that enabled them to cross chasms
and ridges with the same facility
that a boat can climb up and down
the waves. Inside their steel walls
were stationed riflemen, who perfect perfectly
ly perfectly secure from anything except a
shot from a large cannon were able
to pour a torrent of bullets on their
unprotected enemies. This prophecy
of Wells has come to pass. On the
Somme front last week, the Germans
were surprised by the approach from
the British lines of what seemed to
be prehistoric monsters. Huge and
uncouth, they moved forward, climb climbing
ing climbing over the hills, in and out of the
holes and breaking down small trees.
As soon they came in sight of an en enemy,
emy, enemy, bullets spouted in streams from
their sides, and in the meantime the
rifle and machine gun fire of the
Germans beat upon them as harmless harmlessly
ly harmlessly as the autumn rain. They were
auto forts, each carrying a score or
more of fighting men, beside their
crews, and. able to go almost any anywhere
where anywhere a horse could go. So terrify
ing was their aspect, and so f earf ulJ
the execution they did that even the
wartried Germans were hardly able to
persuade themselves they were no(t
supernatural. '

article regarding the deeds of the

salient paragraph: v
"England will fight to the last
Frenchman." "Everybody fights but
John Bull." What has become of
those comfortable slurs from easy
chairs and typewriter desks?' It was
so easy to make them, while a demo democratic
cratic democratic nation with a little army,
caught unprepared because its people
had been afraid of "militarism," was
seeing its reviled soldiers die in vain
It has taken that democratic nation
long to raise an army equal to Ger
man's under fire, but no longer than
it would take another democratic and
unmilitary nation say, for instance,
the nation f rpm which so many of
those slurs have come.

Friday, the Star printed another
letter from its friend, ex-Senator
Blitch, in which he again reproached
it for its opposition to Catts and ad adjured

Mr. Blitch needn't worry. The Star
has never had any other intention
than to support the nominee. Up-to-date
it is not certain who is the nom nominee.
inee. nominee. From all the facts before us, it
seems to us that Mr. Knott is entitled
to the nomination. There is no doubt
in the mind of any reasonable man
that he has a majority of the first and
second choice votes. Catts broke the
rules, and in our opinion, forfeited his
right to a nomination when he went
into the courts and tried to have the
second choice class votes declared ir irregular.
regular. irregular. That the second class votes
should be counted was one of the
rules of the primary, and Catts by
participating in the primary pledged
himself to abide by its rules. When
he tried to break them he, in our
opinion, -forfeited his right to the
vote of any democrat- who wishes to
vote against him. Notwithstanding,
however, that Catts has broken the
rules, the Star does not intend to do
so. it tne supreme court aeciaes ne
is the nominee, he shall have the
Star's support and the Star's vote,
but we will give him that support and
vote out of respect for our own
plighted obligation, and not- because
we think Mr. Catts is a good demo democrat,
crat, democrat, or because we believe he will
make a good governor.
We haveno doubt that most of the
guardians of liberty in this section
are good citizens and have pretty
wives; in fact, we are absolutely cer certain
tain certain that many of them have, for we
are wise to several who can't help
giving themselves away. We ,have
only two things against the guardians
of our county one is they belong to
an organization that is undemocratic
and un-American; another is that
they have allowed themselves to be
deluded by the enemies of their party
and section.
The. guardians of liberty of Florida
are like the children of Israel, when
they bowed down to the golden calf.
However, if Aaron had set up a
brazen jackass for the Israelites to
worship, they would probably have
torn him to pieces. But the children
of Israel returned to their allegiance,
and some day, not long off, the demo democrats
crats democrats of Florida will return to theirs.

willing, if the other exhibitors were,
to have it sold for the benefit of the
orphans' home in Jacksonville.
Seems to the Star like a very good
suggestion. While each exhibitor
will send only a small amount of
corn to Jacksonville, the aggregate
will probably be considerable, and if

Jim swerved his car to the curb as
he entered Chicago and, jumping out out-seized
seized out-seized a paper and turned back toward
the car. Men, gazing at their papers,
as he was, blundered before him and
blocked his ,way. He looked into the

ed. They were reading the same head headlines,
lines, headlines, printed in the same words as
those he was reading, but as they
spoke to each other It was in a strange
tongue. One man, who was reading
his paper most intently, spoke to Jim
without looking up. Jim, not under understanding,

men were not openly hostile but, then

shook his head.

retreated at the same challenge. Jim

Just what he neeled."
Jim flushoJ. Sibert had spoken to
him as one who might require aid, not
as one able to give aid to those work working
ing working for the nation in this emergency.
Bob was giving him credit for having
flone something which he had not
been expected to do. "I've told Nel Nellie
lie Nellie that I befieve it's best if she stays
In Elgin for awhile anyway," Bob
went on. "I know I don't Iiave to ask
you to look out for her for me. Good

The train was about to start, and
Jim spoke quickly, "Was that gun you

"Then give it to me! Never mind
why I w:ant it. Give it to me!"
He seized it and the cartridges as
Bob pulled them from his pocket.
Wendell leaped for the platform of
the train and caught it. The train
moved from the station, the baggage
porters and switchmen and the station
attendants all standing and staring as
the crowded cars left the sheds. Then
a porter took the placard from the
Iron stand which had been at the rear
of the train, "Special to Washington
and Newport News."
How many more signs must be

Jim jumped into his car ard turned
It toward the business center of the
city. The address upon the letterhead
which Bob had found on Ingouf's body
was that of a wel. known business
block; the ofHee was 312; that meant
It was on the third floor. It was the
name and address which, Bob said,
were valuable. So Sibert probably had
