Emptying a Bottle.
Water or any other liquid cannot
flow from a bottle in a steady stream
because until the bottle is empty there
is a continuous struggle between tbe
tendency of the liquid to fall from the
bottle and the rushing of the air to get

is turned upside down there will be an

The Tobacco Habit.
If a man who uses tobacco will give
it up for one day each week he will
keep himself from becoming a "tobacco
fiend." This is the advice of a well
known doctor, who says that quite a
number of men, including himself, have
adopted this plan.
"By leaving off tobacco for one day a
week you give your system time to get
rid of the effects of the drug," he said.
"You will then enjoy your tobacco far
more, too, because you have become
unaccustomed to the flavor, and it is
therefore more enjoyable when you re resume
sume resume smoking.
"The effect of tobacco is a general
sedative action on the nervous system,
.which diminishes the power of taste
and smeJL That is why tea tasters sel seldom
dom seldom or never smoke.
"Leave it off for a day and the sense
of taste recovers. Not only that, but
leaving off tobacco for one day volunta voluntarily
rily voluntarily breaks the tobacco habit, exercises
the self control and prevents one from
becoming a slave to the habit."
Mystery of Bird Flight.
A curious fact concerning birds is
that the tip of the whig moves at prac practically
tically practically the same speed in every species.
This is 650 feet per minute, or nearly
seven and a half miles per hour.
Whether it is the tiny wren or the huge
stork, the rule holds good, and even the
bee comes within it. Thus the bee has
a wing only a quarter of an inch long,
the sparrow's wing is four inches and
the stork's twenty-seven. But the bee's
wing beats 11,400 times in a minute,
the sparrow's 720 and the siork's only
105 times. If you multiply together the
length of the wing and the number of
beats you will get almost exactly the
same result in the three cases namely,
stork, 2,835; bee, 2,850; sparrow, 2,880.
But if ever a machine is made to fly
like a bird it will have to develop far
more energy than these figures stand
i for. A bird"s energy of flight is not so
! great, as is supposed. Although such
! skillful fliers when aloft, many birds
cannot rise from level ground. London

Black Point was a good school in it itself,
self, itself, and when backed, up by five
months of border duty made any good
man a competent soldier, so while the
members of Company A are pleased
they are not much surprised to learn

THE BUGLE CALLS
Ocala is learning to listen for the
bugle calls of Company A, and to like
them. Reveille makes a convenient
as well as a pretty alarm clock when
it rings out at 5:45 a. m., and as the
others sound at regular intervals dur during

interest. The most musical bugle
song in the twenty-four hours is
"taps," and in the week that the com company
pany company has been here many people have
formed the habit of going out on their
piazzas or leaning out of their win windows
dows windows at 10 p. m. to hear it. It can
be heard all over town almost as
clearly and much more prettily than
the courthouse clock.
Sunday night, the bugle sounded a
note that has never, so far as we
know, been heard in Ocala before. It
was church call at 7:30 p. m. Going
to church is not obligatory on the
soldiers, but their officers generally
encourage them in so doing. The
church call is seldom sounded except
at regimental headquarters, and as
neither of the Florida regiments is
assembled it is possible that the call
was not heard anywhere in Florida
except in Ocala Sunday night
There was a good attendance of the
young soldiers at the different
churches Sunday evening.
They Will be Missed
All the bugle calls are musical, and
they will be much missed when the
company goes away.
A Short Day
One of our contemporaries, printed
in a town where a company is camp camped,
ed, camped, remarked in a recent edition: "It
makes one feel sad to hear reveille
sound at the armory at 9 o'clock
This touching sentiment has caused
a general laugh among the camps.
Some of the soldiers say that if they
could have reveille at 9 p. m. and taps
at 10, they would have a short and
easy day and could catch up with
some of their sleep.
WREAD IT WRONG
In commenting on the Star's pre
diction that Ocala probably would not
have a home guard, the St. Peters Petersburg
burg Petersburg Independent says:
"And the Star should remember
that a military organization is vastly
preferable to a vigilance committee
which acts outside the law."
Editor Brown of the Independent is
generally so careful that we are sur-
prised at his making such a comment,
especially as he reprinted and must
have read the Star's remarks on the
subject. There is not the slightest
intention here of forming a vigilance
committee. The Star said there were
at least 500 citizens able and willing
to serve as deputies or special police,
and if they did so they would be as
much inside the law as regular sol soldiers,
diers, soldiers, let alone home guards.

The Tampa Tribune complains that
the press of Florida has made public

silly letter to Attorney General Greg Gregory

for Campbell. St. Petersburg Times.
The Tribune's lack of consistency
is a laughable thing sometimes. If it
doesn't like a man, it makes no bones
of taking a shot at him from any
standpoint it finds convenient.
We have never blamed Gov. Catts
for trying to get his brother-in-law
out of the pen. We should have done
the same thing had we been in his
place. Bat we think the department
of justice jarred public sentiment
when it set Campbell free because he
was the brother-in-law of a governor.
It's not what we would expect under
a democratic admiinstration.

There was a blinding blaze and a
tremendous crash, and the house was

had time to feel of themselves and
ascertain they were not dead, they
found very little damage was done.
Splinters had been knocked out of
some of the wood work, and a little
negro servant had been either scared
or shocked half to death. He soon
recovered and the splinters and the
memory of the exciting experience
were all left of the incident.

CONGRESS AND THE WAR
Tilings are not going well in Wash
ington. Everyone at the capital knows
this, even those who are to blame.
Much of the trouble was inevitable.
Commencing a war of this magnitude
with the machinery left by the Bryan Bryan-Daniels
Daniels Bryan-Daniels anti-preparedness league was
a. goou ueai line trying to move a
dreadnought with the engine of an

pected, but such a state of confusion
as has existed in some departments
was not in the imagination of anyone
who thinks "American efficiency" ex exists
ists exists outside of the domain of tavern
argument and Fourth-of-July oratory.
Many newspapers are silent. At
present it is not considered patriotic
to criticize the administration. It is
hard to select from the mass of in
efficiency piled up by the depart
ments specific instances of enough
importance in themselves to interest
a public that has not awakened to the
fatal seriousness of the war. It is
possible that it will not be until some
great calamity overtakes the country
that such occurrences as the protract
ed and disgraceful controversy in the
shipping board will seem more sig
nificant than a comic row.
At the same time the fact is dawn dawning
ing dawning on the minds of a considerable
part of the public that there have
been blunders and that these blunders
have cost the country much in reputa reputation,

in the sacrifice of the lives of our sol

It is big and impersonal and, as a
whole, unpopular. The newspapers
naturally report only the silliest,
which are also the most amusing,
speeches on the floor. The sound and
honest work of the committees is neg neglected

But it is only justice to the members
of the Sixty-fifth Congress to say
that close attention to the record of

degree of unselfishness that is rarely
found in political bodies.

the administration to ask for $2,000, $2,000,-000,000.

taxation so distributed that it will
not become odiously burdensome is a
task whose complexities are beyond
the understanding of the press agents
of the navy and war departments.
Newspaper publishers ought to know
this, for they can plainly see how
difficult the comparatively simple

own business has become.

I went on a night train. Being some
what finical about my diet, I took with
me a hamper filled with as succulent
eatables as I could get together and on
the top placed a box of cigars from
which only a few of the weeds had
been taken. I got into my compart
ment, put my hand baggage on the
rack and settled myself for a journey.
Being in a smoking compartment I lit
The compartment was filled with na natives,
tives, natives, I being the only European In it.
This In itself was not encouraging
The train had hardly got under way
when an old Arab sheik sitting oppo opposite
site opposite me leaned forward and calmly took
my cigar from between my lips and,
placing It between his own, smoked it
To have resented the insult would
have been equivalent to inviting the
man to stab me. I therefore paid no
attention to him and, taking .a news newspaper
paper newspaper from my pocket, began to read read-that
that read-that is, I pretended to read, but I had
no idea of what was on the sheet be before
fore before me, my mind being taken up with
the fact that I was in a compartment
with seven Arabs and utterly at their
mercy. My eyes appeared to be fixed
upon the paper, but I was casting
quick glances sidewise at the natives
and knew by their chatter and occa occasional
sional occasional looks at me that I was the sub subject
ject subject of their conversation.
Then a lucky thought occurred to
me. I reached up to the rack, got my
box of cigars from my hamper, took
out one for myself and handed the box
to the sheik who had robbed me of the
one I had been smoking. He took it,
appropriated a handful of the contents
and passed it to. the others, who did
the same, and the box was returned to
Notwithstanding my peace offering
I expected every moment to feel cold
steel entering my vitals. Most of the
Arabs wore long knives where they
could be seen, and I knew not what
other weapons they had concealed. As
for me, I was unarmed, and even if I
had been armed my opponents were
seven to one.
I cannot describe the agony of that
night, expecting, as I did, death at any
moment The Arabs in my compart compartment
ment compartment paid no attention to anything
that was going on in the rest of the
train, but I had a vague feeling that
something very important might be go going
ing going on. I can't account for this feel feeling,
ing, feeling, for I heard no sound to produce It
I only knew that I felt that there was
murder In the air.
Finally their looks and acts were so
suspicious that I bethought myself of
some other way similar to my offer of
cigars to placate them. Then my
luncheon occurred to me. Reaching
up again to the rack, I brought down
my hamper, opened it and displayed
the eatables. Every man's eyes were
on them, but not a man moved to
touch any of them. I offered the ham hamper
per hamper to the man who sat next me, but
he declined. In turn I handed it to
every man in the compartment; but
though they all looked with eager eyes
upon the viands, not a man would ac accept
cept accept a morsel.
At first I was astonished at this.
Then I remembered that no Arab will
break bread with an enemy.
The moment "this occurred to me I
knew I was doomed. I put my hamper
back on the rack and, wrapping myself
in my overcoat lay back in my seat
with my eyes closed, to await what
ever was In store for me.
I heard a great deal of wrangling
on the part of the Arabs, but I thought
I would rather rely on my weakness
than on being prepared for resistance
that would be useless. So I did not
open my eyes. Presently I felt a hand
on my arm. Thinking my time had
come, I looked, and there was the
sheik who had taken my cigar from
my mouth holding out a piece of dry
bread. I took it and, biting from it
A flood of relief and Joy seemed to
have been poured over me. I knew
from that moment I was safe; Reach
ing up for my hamper, I took It down
and handed It to the sheik. He helped
himself, then passed It around to the
others, each man partaking plentifully
of the contents.
Now that they had broken bread
with me and I having no more to fear
I again leaned back in my seat and
this time slept I knew that I was as
safe from my Arab companions as if I
were In my own bed at home.
But I did not reach Ismailia that
night In the morning I found that the
natives had murdered the engineer,
stoker and every European on the train
