what could be done. Where General
Cadorna made a stand is not yet

capable of defense. The Teutons are

Congressman Drane has secured
for the Florida home guards 500
.45-70 Springfield rifles and 7500
cartridges. These rifles and the am-!
munition have been awarded by Gov.
Catts to the first congressional dis district,
trict, district, as a compliment to Mr. Drane
for obtaining them. The old black-
powder Springfield is a very effective
gun in the hands of a man who knows
how to use it, but it takes right smart
practice for a novice to learn how to
hit anything with it. Five hundred
rifles will arm at least four home
guard companies, probably six or
eight, but 7500 cartridges, only 15 to
each gun, won't go very far. They
are just about enough to enable the
men to get acquainted with their
guns, and would not last them more
than three minutes in a fight. So
Mr. Drane should try to obtain som&
more cartridges. The government
does not make .45-70 cartridges any
more, but the U. M. C, Winchester
and Remington factories make a
limited supply for the guns of that
caliber, a great many of which are
scattered around the country. Their
principal use for the last few years
has been in moving picture battles,
but in almost every community are
some owned by private individuals,
consequently there used to be a good
many of the cartridges kept in the
hardware stores. The cartridges cost
six cents apiece at retail, and we
think it would be a wise measure for
the governor to "commandeer" all
that are now in stock in Florida hard
ware stores and pawnshops. If the
Florida home guards are to be equip
ped with these guns, they should have
at least 100 rounds apiece, of which
twenty should be used in target prac
tice as soon as possible after accom
pany is formed.
Editor-Major Brown of the Pinel
las home ..guards, whose foresight
has already secured for his army 310
rifles and 10,000 cartridges, now in
sists that his county receive 166 of
the guns and a third of the ammu
nition secured by Congressman Drane
for the state and awarded by the gov
ernor to Mr. Drane's district. We
are more afraid than ever that Editor-Major
Brown has become Prus
sianized. With already 310 guns
and 10,000 cartridges, this distribu distribution
tion distribution will give him 476 guns and 12, 12,-600
600 12,-600 rounds, while all the rest of the
district will have only 334 guns and
5000 shots. Suppose Editor-Major
Brown should take it into his head
to invade Hillsborough or Polk. We
hope Mr. Drane will give those guns
to the guards of Tampa and Lake Lakeland
land Lakeland and (let's see, isn't there a com
pany in Lake) so the may be able
not only to defend their own counties

WILLIAM DIDNT WORRY
Sunday afternoon, some enemy of
John Batts, Sibbald Wilson and Will William
iam William Avery loaned them a one-lunged
flivver, with which they journeyed tp
Silver Springs. While they tarried
at that pleasant spot, there came
along a classy auto in which were
three fairies. The said fairies smiled
at William, whereupon he forsook
Sibbald and John and joined the
fairies in their chariot. Very sad, but
forgiving, for either of them would
have done the same thing, Sibbald
and John cranked up their hunka tin

up and asked if he could help.
"Tell us what's the matter with
this blamed thing," said John we

sound like it.
"Maybe you are out of gasoline,"
So John, in nautical language,
sounded the well and found ,it dry.
And Harley couldn't spare any gas,
for he had barely enough to take him

of Harley's passengers, a man who
seldom gives anything but advice.

can make it in forty-five minutes and

Hallowe'en (Wednesday) the eve
before All Hallows or All Saints Day,
is the day for parties with apples,
pumpkins, cats, witches, etc. People
who are lucky enough to have cellars
can give the best parties as they
can be made "spooky" and "woodsy."
The kitchen and back porch or yard
are the next best places for such fun
as apple ducking.
Dennison's Bogie Book gives this
clever idea for watching partners:
Cover a waste paper basket with
black crepe paper, padded if neces necessary
sary necessary to give the right shape. Make
a handle of wire and by it hang this
"pot" on three crossed sticks. Wrap
up little inexpensive emblems of luck,
good and bad, and fill the pot. There
should be two of each kind, one wrap
ped in,jred for the boys and one in or
ange for the girls. Invite dancers to
each try "pot luck" and then use
their favor to "match up."
The games should begin late, as
charms work best between 9 o'clock
and midnight. Harper's Weekly gives
the new way to find who your future
husband or wife is to be:
One rather unusual method is to
have all the letters of the alphabet
carved on a large pumpkin, which is
set on a small table. The guests are
blind-folded, given a hatpin, then
turned around three times and start
ed in the direction of the pumpkin.
The letters in which they manage to
stick the hatpin will be the initials of
their future husbands or wives. An
other stunt is to place twelve lighted
candles in a row with a two-foot
space between candles. The game is
to jump over the candles, repeating
the names, of the month. If a candle
goes out it signifies the month in
which the player will be married.

the clubs in this department.

food conservation at the Woman's

some of the books already in the li'

for War Service, Clothing for Women
by Boldt, Home Labor Saving Devices
by Scott, and a complete file of the
bulletins issued by the state college.

it is especially important that every

to this department.
Co-operation is the word of the

It would be a fine thing if every

the co-operation of the home demon

to assist. Use "Ten Lessons on Food
Conservation," published by the U. S.
Every club should as soon as pos
sible begin a course in dietetics. One
of the ways by which conservation
may be effected is by the proper com
bination of foods suited to the indi
viduals in the family. As Red Cross
work your club can form a class in
home dietetics using the American
Red Cross text book. Write to Miss
Ruth Rich, chairman of Red Cross
work in the state federation, Jack

Roofing r v
Before its m erits were recognized, roll roofing was
regarded as a more or less temporary roof but now
CERTAIN-TEED has demonstrated that it is not only
a most durable roof, but abofe most efficient roof.
It is economical to buy, inexpensive to lay and costs
practically nothing to maintain. It is light weight,
clean, canitary, lire-rctaraant and weather-tight.
It is now used as the preferable type of reef for
office buildings, factories, hotels, stores, ware warehouses,
houses, warehouses, garages, farm buildings etc., where dura durability
bility durability is demanded. CERTAIN-TEED is guaranteed
for 5, 10 or 15 years, according to thickness (1,

to lay a CERTAIN-TEED roof than it does to lay a poor
