Something More Solid than Cigars on
the Site of Vanished

Twenty-five years ago, Marti City,
a mile west of Ucala, was one of the
livest places in Florida. 'With five
cigar factories and the homes of well-
nigh 2000 people, its future seemed
Today it has vanished from the face
of the earth, but its place is well
taken by Dr. Tydings' big farm, which
except a small spot or two covers
the whole space.
Robert Tydings, who manages the
farm for his father, took us out to see
it Sunday. There were two or three
big fields of flint corn, which makes
the best bread, with peanuts, beans,
potatoes, etc., all in fine shape.
The principal tiding we noticed how however
ever however was a 16-acre cotton patch. It
was tne genuine Sea Island lone
staple, the seeding coming from
Edisto county, S. C, and promised a
big yield.
Mr. Tydings has imported from
South Carolina a colored "man who is
a veteran in raising cotton, and his
skill is manifest in the robust stalks
and heavy bolls.
A cotton patch is as pretty as a
rose garden when it is in bloom, and
Robert has promised to pull us out of
bed some morning when the dew is on
the vine and let us see the patch at
its best. In the meantime, we see

The Star is informed that on the
visit of the governor and some other
state officials here next Saturday, the
girls' industrial school to the east of
the city is to be investigated.
There are all sorts of reports
about the school, many people find finding
ing finding fault with the conduct of the
superintendent, Mrs. Range. It is said
that she ill treats some of the girls,
abuses them verbally and sometimes
physically and doesn't give them
enough to eat, and some of the people
who don't like her have made re remarks
marks remarks about her that would give her
grounds for libel suits.
A few weeks ago, a lady teacher,
Miss Pedrick, came here to instruct
the girls. Miss Pedrick is a compe
tent teacher and highly recommended,
but she and Mrs. Range did not get
along very well together, and the
superintendent finally discharged the
teacher. The Star is informed that
Miss Pedrick will make a report at
the investigation that will not sound
very good for the superintendent;
also, that several ladies in this city
who don't like the way Mrs. Range
manages the school, will ask that an-

The Star has consulted some people
who were better acquainted with the
workings of the school and its in inmates

have any opportunity to be. They
say the slanderous stories about the
superintendent are too silly for any
reasonable person to believe; that

fill, and it is doubtful that her crit critics

The girls at the school are not a

Riot and Murder Ensued When the
Twenty-Fourth Infantry Went
on a Rampage
(Associated Press)
Waco, Tex., July 30. Soldiers and
police are hunting fourteen negro
members of the Twenty-Fourth In Infantry,
fantry, Infantry, following a clash last night
resulting in one negro soldier being
shot through the head and three
whites hurt. The trouble started
when negro soldiers massed in front
of a negro picture house, refusing to
allow white people to pass. The city
is quiet today. The missing men
have returned to camp and are under
after they ran away. Mrs. Range is
an unusually muscular woman. If
she hadn't been, some of the worse
girls would have combined and beaten
ker. Miss Pedrick says she has never
had any trouble with the girls, but it
is doubtful that she could have con controlled
trolled controlled all of them alone.
The girls certainly don't look like
they were ill fed. They have come
down town several times, and they
have the appearance of being well
cared for.
It's the Star's opinion that the
school should be in charge of a man
preferably a physician with two or
more women assistants. It should be
arranged so the best girls could be
kept separate from the worst ones
until the latter improved. This they
would probably do, but at present
they retard th progress of the better
girls. The item of bad language is
a considerable one. Some of the
young ladies can talk in a way that
would make, a pirate's conversation
sound like that of a Sunday school
They tell it on one of the girls,
that whn she ran away some months
ago, and was brought back by an of officer,
ficer, officer, that she started in on the poor
man and made the most disparaging
remarks about him and his parents,
his grandparents, his children and his
grandchildren. She kept this up until
the officer's patience gave way, and
he said, "Madam, if you wasn't a
lady, I would take you over my knee
and spank you until your nose bled."
There may be some foundation for
some of the stories some of the girls
tell about the hard times they have,
but human nature craves sympathy
and even good girls will tell fibs
sometimes to gain it.
It's the Star's opinion that nearly
all the girls could be made into good,
useful women under auspicious cir circumstances.
cumstances. circumstances. Girls naturally prefer
to be good, and when they are bad
it's almost always the fault' of cir circumstances
cumstances circumstances and surroundings. One
of the "incorrigibles" at the school
has been with a private family for
some weeks, and she has behaved
very well. If each and every one of
them could be put in charge of people
who knew how to win her respect and
good will, it is probable that she
would prove herself worthy of good
The state can't do this it has to
put them all in together, under charge
of people who can manage them in a
machine-like way, under certain rules.
Most of them will come thru the
machine all right, but some will try
to stuff themselves into the cogs,
almost always with, disastrous result
to themselves.
The authorities should not displace
Mrs. Range unless they are certain
they can obtain some one who will do
better, and they should take into
consideration that she could do better
if they will remove some of the dis advantages
she labors under.
Also, our people, while they should
be willing to do anything to help the
girls, and occasionally shed some sun sunlight
light sunlight into their narrowed lives, should
be careful not to do anything to lead
the girls to think they will try to
interfere with the discipline of the
school, for that will do more harm
than almost anything else.

Second District Congressman will Try
to Redress Wrongs of Talla Tallahassee
hassee Tallahassee Soldiers
(Tampa Tribune)
Tallahassee, July 29. (Special).
Acting on the advice of Congressman
Frank Clark of the Second Florida
strict, the members of the local
military organization, Company B,
re preparing to name a captain of
their own choosing, to be elected at a
leeting called for tomorrow night.
This is the congressman's suggestion
i the way the militiamen should
combat the appointment of S. J. Catts
r. as commander of the company. If
they follow Sir. Clark's advice, they
vill be acting contrary to the implied
advice of the two Florida senators
who, in telegrams in reply to urgent
messages from Tallahassee, replied
that the First Regiment was federal
ized recently and the appointment
would hold.
In his letter to members of the
company who had protested Captain
Catts' appointment as unjust to them,
Mr. Clark says he wants all informa
tion and affidavits sent him at Wash
ington, where he will place the matter
before the war department.
"The boys need not be afraid to
make affidavits," says the message
from the fighting congressman.

Despite the protests of members of

while the department much regretted
a failure to comply with the Florida

the subject, and is as follows:

The other day the Tampa Tribune

printed something bragging on the

Elks and the Knights of Columbus,

Only that and nothing more. Just
