By UNCLE DAN
JJmmfe and a German Boy Clash
MUst Do Three Things to Save
L It was a warm evening; so Uncle
I Dan went out to a lawn seat under the
spreading branches of the great tree
tf that suggested the farm's name of Oak
f X Dill. Blllie and Jlmmle had been lay lay-v;fngfor
v;fngfor lay-v;fngfor him, so Uncle Dan was cap cap-y
y cap-y tured by the boys on short order.
MSay, Uncle Dan," Blllie began. "We
had a red-hot argumant at school yes yes-VjSSfcerday
VjSSfcerday yes-VjSSfcerday with Carl Newman. Carl said
$ that' German schools were miles ahead
j of our schools and that no one could
come up to the educated German. Well,
-v' Jlmmle got hot under the collar and
j handed It back to him good and plenty.
Jimmie said If their education taught
j them to torpedo Lusltanias, sink, hos hospital
pital hospital ships, murder hundreds of wom women
en women and children, make slaves of
f the Belgians, poison wells, destroy fruit
trees and commit all sorts of crimes,
, then we did not want that kind of
I education here. What do you think
j about It, Uncle Dan? I told Jlmmle
j you spent a lot of time In Europe and
I knew all about schools, so give us your
opinion." r '' '
-Well," replied Uncle Dan, deliber-
ately, "the German schools are very
I thorough ; they furnish exceedingly val val-!
! val-! liable and practical Instruction. The
lndustrial training given there Is prob-
V ably the best to be found. The schools

lias a very smart father who keeps:
him posted on the German arguments. :
S Carl said our government was only;
V an, experiment anyway; that It would
( not last twenty years, and that It
might burst up any old time. Jlmmle
asked him If Germany was so mighty
good, why they did not go back there
'to live.T i :" '-'
Ocr government will go on forever,
won't It, Uncle Dan?" t V
Now," said Uncle Dan, "yon are
raising a big question, and, one that
has troubled me for years. Our gov-
ernment Is still in the experimental
stage ; in' fact. It Is the greatest ex experiment

few things must be done, otherwise, to

j In a very Impressive manner, "that if
"' jour country Is to go onv as we hope
and pray, we must' very quickly do
' --r&t Iea8t three things, and I will name
them In the order of Importance as it
appears to me :
"First, adopt compulsory universal
military training of all young men
- physically fit before they reach the
age of twenty years.
"Next, require that every foreigner

reasonable time, say; a year, declare

( do so, thereby, from that moment, as
suming all the obligations of citizen citizenship
ship citizenship of our country, and that means he
must defend pur flag upon equal terms
with our native born, and if he is not
willing to do this, he should be sent
Sack from whence he came."
"That's the stuff," exclaimed Blllie.
' "And, finally, enact such legislation
as will make voting compulsory. Pop Popular
ular Popular government is based upon the
participation of all and the rule of
the majority, and democracy cannot
continue and be successful unless we
live up to thV spirit of the instltu-

Uncle Dan, "that the Rotary clubs of

work with the Universal Military

: Mr. YLt M.. Hampton is one of
Oeala's foremost lawyers. Few men

to answer either or both that is if
he was, as he should be, looking out
for thd interest, of the people.
But Mr. Hampton, who is not a can

But since he has .butted in, Mi.

the Star's inaccuracy. Its readers,
who are about all the people in, town
who can read, seem to find it accm
ate enough; so far-as that is concern
ed Mr. Hampton also finds it accurate
on those numerous occasions when it
agrees with him.
Mr. Hampton says he is "absolutely

months ago, and the opinion has been
on file in the clerk's office ever since.
It is inexcusable in Mr. Hampton as
a leading lawyer, also as a prominent
citizen, that he is not posted on it,
. and his confession on this point shows
that he knows as little about city af
..fairs as he accuses the Star of know
in g. For that matter, we don't think
the people are as forgetful as Mr.
Hampton thinks they are. If the

the new charter in some mysterious
xfjiy alters the status of the gas com
panys franchise; also that the city
attorney is not posted on the said
charter. For that matter, the fran franchise

Hampton of the well-known principle
in law that a contract is binding. It
would be strange if the city attorney
was not familiar with the new char charter,

ifr- up, and he informed us so late as
day before yesterday that his opinion
on the gas company's franchise stood.
Anybody can see the probability-f-a
conflict of opinion between the inter interests
ests interests of the city and the interests of
the gas company, in which the gas
company would be greatly aided by a
council favorable to it, and by a city
attorney, elected by such a council.
We cannot see our way clear to
adopt Mr. Hampton's suggestion, that
we confess we jumped on something
we didn't know the first thing about.
The tenor of Mr. Hampton's remarks
show -: that while he undoubtedly
delves deep into such questions as he
gives his attention to, he is not spe specially

He tried to make it unpleasant not

FROM MR. HAMPTON
Editor Star: In your issue of Dec.
7th, you propound two questions,
which you asked me to answer. I take
pleasure in answering them.
First you ask: "Isn't the franchise
the gas company now operates under,
in consequence of the higher price of
everything, more favorable than it
might have reason to hope for if it
had to be renewed year after next?'
j Moot court' cases and hypothetical
cases are ; often discussed in law
schools and debating societies, but
rarely ever in business life, and I am
sorry that I haven't the time to enter
into a debate involving only a hypo hypothetical
thetical hypothetical s case, but my time is mostly
taken up in matters of importance,
but I woulduggest that you send the
question with a copy of the franchise
td the law, department of the Univer University
sity University of Florida at Gainesville, with a
request that they made a special order
for it, for as I understand they are
hard up for subjects up there any
way, understand there Is no debat debating
ing debating society here that could take it up.
I am sure the discussion will be inter interesting,
esting, interesting, and both of us would profit by
it, so we will go up to Gainesville
when they pull it off.
Second-, you ask: "And if it had
some ground to work on to carry its
franchise on to 1929,. wouldn't it be
considerable help to it to have in pow power
er power a council disposed to be just to it?"
This question is a little bit, confus confused

I do not entirely understand it, but il
I understand it clearly, you ask,
would the gas company not fare bet better

this needs no reply. Certainly justice
is better than injustice, even 1 though
administered by a city council. 77;;
(It is evident that Mr. Hampton is
more than a little bit confused, for he

if, you are advised of anything along
this line you ought to make it known
to the people, because I do not believe
any good citizen would vote for a
man who desires to go into office with

one. Yours very truly,
H. M. Hampton.
If Mr. Hampton will make arrange arrangements

"Jew's house," in Lincoln, of the Nor Norman
man Norman period, about eight hundred years
old. But which and where is the- most
curious habitation in these islands?
asks a writer in London Answers.
u Many tourists who know Conway
will no doubt at once declare for the
miniature house to be found in that
town on. the quay, and actually built
beneath the srim. ancient walls of Ed
ward I's massive castle. It thus forms j
an extraordinary contrast with that i
great fortress, for it is "the smallest
house in Great Britain," as the notice- :
board on its very miniature frontage
The people of Conway seem to be
rather more proud of .the, fame this lit little
tle little slip of a house brings the town than
of the greater fame brought by the big bigger

ders do a large trade in cards of it.
Between Gravesend and the village
of Chalk, and situated in a curious po position,
sition, position, with the Thames on one side
and the Thames and Medway canal on
the other, is an old cottage that is half

since the time of Charles Dickens, who
lived in the neighborhood and may
well have had it in mind when he in invented

mouth Yarmouth sands ; in "David Copperfield."
This, is almost such another, and is
formed from one of the boats of the old
wooden man-o'-war Wellington, ; sold
out of the servce in 1822. The boat,
upside down, forms both roof and up upper
per upper floor of the cottage.
A whimsical freak house of consider
able size and great Interest is that
known as the "Tripod house," standing
In the village of Goodrich, on the River
Wye. It was built in 1636 by Rev.
Thomas Swift, vicar of Goodrich and
grandfather of the famous Dean Swift.
His idea was to thus typify the trinity,
and to do so he designed and built the
house on this curious plan a central
hall, with three wings branching from
It at equal distances.
The unfortunate vicar and builder of
this quaint house was a devoted royal royalist,
ist, royalist, and as such his odd dwelling was
pillaged no fewer than twenty times
by the soldiers of the parliament, who
also stole all his cattle and farm stock.
He did not live to see the restoration
of Charles H, dying, as he did, in 1656.
Our next example an eccentric
dwelling house is to be found In a very
different part of the country away in
Lincolnshire, near Horncastle. From
its fancied resemblance to a teapot it
Is locally known as "Teapot Hali." It
was built, according to, tradition, by a
retired captain of one of the old "tea
clippers," as the fast sailing ships In
the China trade used to be called.

residence is that known a3 'The

SUICIDE OF A YOUNG SOLDIER
.r (Gainesville Sun) I
Oneiof the saddest cases coming to
light recently in connection with thb
war and enlistment of young Ameri Americans
cans Americans to fight against the German war
lordp is that of Berry Cason of Cross
City, t son of Will Cason and grandsoR
of tHarley J. Cason, who was a mem member
ber member of Company L, 124th regimenu,
stationed at Camp Wheeler, whose
death occurred at his own hands at
Cross City yesterday morning having
blown his brains out with a pistol.'
Young Cason was allowed a three three-day
day three-day furlough home from the Macon
camp ; while convalescent from
measles, which he contracted at the
camp, and from which, indirectly, so
many deafhs have occurred at Camp
Wheeler. His .furlough f ending, he
started back to the cantonment, but
on reaching Newberry, where he had
to .change trains, his condition became
worse and becoming unconscious, he
was "set back home by friends at that
place. '-'- :f:'r"V ,-r
Medical aid was' summoned as soon
as the sick boy reached home, and
physicians found him suffering from
acute bronchopneumonia, contracted
asan aftermath -of measles, Di. Will Will-liams,
liams, Will-liams, Uie attending physician, dis discharged
charged discharged him as cured after several
weeks' s severe illness,' and it is pre presumed
sumed presumed young Cason notified some of
his comrades at the Macon camp of
his : convalescence from this latter se serious
rious serious illness, and of his intention qf
returning to hi duties.
" -But day before yesterday as he and
his family were making preparations
for his trip in return, he received an
anonymeus letter, presumably from
one of hiSj fellow-soldiers, stating that
he had best not -return to camp, as he
was posted as a deserter, and conse consequently
quently consequently had been blacklisted by mem members
bers members of his company. ;
Young Cason, naturally, turned this
letter over to his father, and the lat latter
ter latter straightway became busy getting
affidavits from the attending physician
and others to the effect that Berry had
been sick aind unable to return, and de detailing
tailing detailing the case as it had happened.
But evidently his sickness had weak-J
ened Berry Cason's mind,v for he be began
gan began to brood in secret over his sup supposed

morning secured a pistol unknown to
any of his family, and slipping back of
his residence blew out his brains, leav leaving

III CLUB M HOME
Edited by Caroline
'Editor Star: Our fair is over, and
I am "winner again" as 1 have been
for the past three years of all first
premiums .which was offered by the
Fair Association, coming under the
head of Domestic Science. ?
Now, it may interest some canning
club girl to know how I have been able
to do this. ...
Any little girl can do the same as I
have done. For I am only a little girl,
and I suppose I'm doomed to never be
anything, but just a "little girl."
For I overheard the other day a cer certain
tain certain lady telling my mother "to never
under any circumstances allow me to
grow up." ...
But never mind, I like it Being u
- But I'm getting away from what I
started out to say the reason I have
been able to accomplish what I have
First: I have natural taste and love
for the work, in' fact I love all the
sciences so far as l have studied them.
I am getting a foundation in my own
home, anjcklater on in college, I mean
to make a special study of Home Eco Eco-nomice
nomice Eco-nomice and Domestic Science. I have
loved it .ever since I was a tiny tot,
not tall enough to reach the top of the
stove, I used to beg mother for small
pieces of dough, that I might have the
joy of cooking biscuits myself.
Second: I say second, not because
my mother comes second, for "my
mother is second to none. But this,
if a girl had a dozen mothers to teach
her,' if she did not love the work and
did not try to apply herself very lit little
tle little would she accomplish.
I have a mother who likes to teach
her erirls how to do thin es and. who
never as yet refused material for me
to work with, and one who never tires
of telling me how things are done.
r j t
many a time wnen i was oniy a uuie
tot I would ask her if I might make
cookies, or a cake like some she had
made, she would never refuse me, per
haps she might be sewing at the time.
She would tell me what the recipe
called for, and maybe my little feet
would patter back? and fourth from
kitchen to sewing room a half dozen
times before. I would get the recipe
stirred up, for fear I would leave
something out. 7
When later on I asked that she write
down with pencil some recipes for me,
(for no cook book contained as fine
recipes as those contained in, mother's
head.) 'V? -:'v '';. :
I would tack these recipes up and
sometimes the pantry door would be
covered with little slips of paper, but
I didn't mind, I was learning to cook.
Our Demonstration Agent told you
I worked with my mother, and well
right she say this, else I would not
have known what I do about cooking:,
pickling; preserving, jelly making, etc.
I have worked with my mother.. I
have not merely stood and looked on
while my mother did the work. v ;
' I have worked at other times
while my mother sat in a chair and
gave instructions. s
I have also worked when she .was
not any where near, and now my
mother says, she is being well, well
repaid for her, trouble in teaching me.
In that she can sit with, and enjoy her
company, while I prepare dthner for
same, and says she is not the least
bit nervous when escorting friends to
one of my dinners for she knows ev everything's
erything's everything's O. K. r f
Now please don't think I am brag bragging,
ging, bragging, when I say this, I do not mean
it that way. But I do want you girls
to know that I can "CAN" and pre preserve
serve preserve and jake pickles and cook a
dinner (fit for a king, so Papa says)
without my mother's help.1 help.1-.
. help.1-. I work with my mother, and also
work without myjmother. But there
is lots ?and lots more for me to learn.
There is. a great deal more that my
mother can teach me. I have just be begun
gun begun to learn. I am at the foot of the
ladder, but I am1 going to climb to the
in Domestic Science, and am saving
all my money to spend on my educa education,
tion, education, with this end in view.
