THE GOOD SPORT
AND THE TITEWAD
The world looks at men and women
and appraises them at their face

brave, good sports or, titewads, as
they appear on the surface." This is
not so much the world's lack of dis discernment

aware that beauty is only skin deep,
but it will seldom take the trouble to
skin any1 body unless itJ thinks it can
sell the hide at a fair profit, i
Once, in a city not a thousand
'miles from Ocala lived a. man who
had' the reputation of being a good
sport.-He wa$rth son of parents ;who
know how to make money honorably
and spend it generously but with
discretion. When they went their way
across, they left him with piuch of
their ability and generosity but not
so, much of their discretion. They had
saved him the trouble of beginning
where they began-r-he was nearer to
beginning where they left off. Ttiey
left him beside the above-named char characteristics
acteristics characteristics a medium amount of mon money
ey money not so much, because they want wanted
ed wanted to have a good time v while here
and had confidence in his ability to
make his. own way. For awhile, it
seemed they had been correct. He
had all his father's talent for mak making
ing making money but. not so much of his
mother's for spending it jsensibly. So
after the first months, after he had
entered fully into the swing of the
business and social world, he gen
erally broke even, seldom lost and
.only sometimes gained.
I But owing to (his manner of life, his
disposition and knowledge, this wor worried
ried worried him not till toward, the end,, and
not so much then. He was a good
citizen, he married and settled down
and did his part and then some, to toward
ward toward the upbuilding of his town. He
was lavish to his family, generous to
his friends and kind to. every one.. He
never drove a close? bargain and he
pardoned many a needy creditor. .He
helped many friendsr f '.'thru; tight
places, and set some entirely 013 their
feet. He aided the sports of the sons
of his .friends, he" helped, them "out- in
baseball and football.1 and any other
of their worthy ambitions.' He bought
sodawater and icecream and birthday
and Christmas' presents "for the
daughters of his friends, and took a
clean and honest pleasure in' the sat satisfaction
isfaction satisfaction he gave them. He; didn't be belong,
long, belong, to any church; for the simple
reason that he couldn't belong to
them all, but he helped them all, and
he belonged to, every lodge in town.
His friends .called hiiri a gooif sport5
not because he had any special ten tendency

was always cheerful and helpful and
never complained, y ;
Meantime the lines were drawing
closer. Engaged in half a dozen kinds
of business, with himself as the only
central manegement, no one but
himself knew the real state of his af affairs.

For a long time he helped one enter enterprise,
prise, enterprise, or two, or three, with the
others, and as ,long as" there was a
net profit or no great loss, he worried
not that one might be losingi In time
he unloaded some on men' ; whom he
thought could make them go; some sometimes
times sometimes they did; if they didnt he took
them back, thereby enhancing his
reputation as a good, sport,! But the
lines grew tighter, and he began to

Then, as it often happens to men
who are generous to and careless with
themselves, his, life went out as the
fight goes out in an electric lamp
when some hand turns the button.
As he was loved and honored in

In the same city dw'elt, another
man whose friends, the last twenty
years of his life, jokingly referred to
as a "titewad." :
He was born of poor but honest' and
unlucky parents his father and
mother literally worked themselves to
death. He was brought up by an
uncle who had bed and board and
scanty clothes but no money for the
orphan. He went to' public school, but
when he reached the ninth grade' he
found a place in, a' business house arid
began to work for his living. He was
strong,' healthy, intelligent and indus industrious.
trious. industrious. He had a : good head fo
figures, and tho he never saw the in inside
side inside of an algebra he could keep any
accounts' needed in ordinary business.
He worked his way up from position
to position until he was its virtual
.Unluckily for him, while he could
execute, he couldn't plan. He could
find flaws in otber men's, plans, or be
could carry them out, but he could not
make plans himself,: so he remained
in a subordinate position at amoder
ate salary all his days. ; tf
The first week he was at work, he
estimated1 What he would receive and
made up his mind to spend even less,
and this program he adhered to with
few exceptions until his last payday.
He had no'- bad habits. Sometimes, he
took a glass of sdda with a friend:
then he would mark' that friend down
on a mental tablet until he bought
him a drink in retumr after that he
would mark the friend off the tablet
until said friend bought him another
drink. Hei' always ;kept exact account
and toted fair- but he had not many
friends. No matter if he was suffering
with thirst, he would not take a drink
with a crowd,4 for if he had he would
have thought himself bound to buy
them all a drink apiece until he had
gone around, and hp could not keep
tab on so' many. He had a weakness
for chewing gum, and would some
times accept a chew from a f riend-f
this ,was the. only thing" in which the
world got ahead of him, foxfne. never
bought any gum the idea of buying
a whole nickel's worth appalled him.
He did not smoke nor chew nor beti
ice cream and candy he let strictly
alone, and his dental bills footed up
less than five dollars from his cradle
to" his grave. -.v;;'; i ''.; ;
He married early, a pretty, doll doll-faced,
faced, doll-faced, shallow-brained i girl, : with
whom he tried to make a home. They
made a sort of a one, but it was most mostly
ly mostly because the titewad did a lot of the
woman's work as well as his own, and
because his stubborn will, kept her re reluctant
luctant reluctant feet on the straight and nar
There were two children, a boy and
a girl who brought into their f athers
life. the only real : joy it ever' knew.
But this didn't last beyond their child childhood
hood childhood they were too much like theh
For the father's idea was that the
home ;was the first place in ? the
world f-that it must be maintained at
all cost,' and not until all its demands
were met was there anything to spare
for anything else." And he held ; his
family.: He knew just what he was go going
ing going to receive every week, and unless
there was sickness or accident, no
more must be spent.
The mother couldn't see why this
must be. She wanted &T good time oc occasionally,'
casionally,' occasionally,' no matter what it cost. She
wanted? some of the pretty tilings
other and richer women had, even if
the paycheck didn't cover them. She
couldn't see why the butcher, thb
baker or the doctor should not wait a
week or a mcnth or a year so she and
the ; children 'could have prettier,
clothes, give an occasional party and
ride in their own car.
Not that they were neglected. They
were always well-fed, well-clad and
any real vant was ; supplied if it
wasn't anticipated. The -titewad
simply wouldn't spend $16 a week
when he was receiving $15, or if he
had to. he would only spend $14 the
next week. When the firm began pay-;
ing him $1200 a year he stubbornly
refused to spend $1250. When it rais-l
ed him to $1500 the request that he
blow in $2000 in one year and catch up j
in the next two fell on deaf ears.
When the time came that he was
drawing down $2500 the folks some- i
times maae mm spena $Z4'jy cut no
more. ; -v:
He was far more generous to them
than to himself. He never owned "a
stylish, well-fitting suit in hi3 life.
His annual two-weeks vacation was
always spent at home, during which
be worked harder around the house
and in the garden than at the office.
He belonged to one church, and paid
to it a bigger proportion of his salary
than some of the richer members. He
belonged, to one fraternal order the
biggest one in the world but how
much of its good work he helped in
only a few of his brethren knew. He
read one "newspaper and books from
the public library. Except on lodge
nights, he went to bed at 9 o'clock
unless he had to help nurse the sick,
and no matter what time he went to
bed he always arose at 6, took a big
drink of water and began the work
of the day. j f
He seldom gave to public enter enterprises
prises enterprises or charities. He thought, per perhaps
haps perhaps with justice, that his lodge and
church contributions covered charity,
and he said probably with truth) in
regard to public enterprises, that it
wasn't right to pull the legs of the
two or three hundred business men in
town for something that would ben
efit ail the people. He would give
sometimes, but if he had a dollar in
his pocket for his washlady and a
pretty girl wanted a contribution for
some good cause the washlady rot

He contributed to the Red Cross,
the Y, M. C. A., the tobacco fund and
home company's fund, but hardly
anybody ever knew, for he sought
the treasurers like a thief ; in the
night. Said he couldn't afford to let
the town know he : was giving. Per Perhaps
haps Perhaps he told the truth.
The titewad was not contented. No
man alive would have morel liked to
have a good time. He had a natural
appreciation of nice-looking clothes.
He loved a good horse and his fingers
knew they would tingle on the reins
if he ever sat behind a fast trotter.
He never had a bicycle, but when .he
bought one for. his boy he jumped on
it one day and 7 rode it a-1 couple ,.Nof

chumming with him. The girls scarce scarcely
ly scarcely knew him.
He did a great deal of thinking in
the last years of his life. He had
nothing to do but to think ,and to
work. He never complained.
And one night, while he stayed at
the office late, to do the work of a
younger man, who wanted' to have a
pleasant evening out, he grew very
weary, and thought he would lay his
head down on his arms on the desk
before him to rest a few minutes, so
he might finish his work the better.
As he relaxed his muscles for the
brief rest, he thought the lights were
going out. That happened sometimes,
but they always lit again in a minute
or two, so he didn't worry. Slowly
they receded into darkness. Then
there arose around him a great, black
cloud not a terrifying cloud, but one

not, but he knew it was all right. It
seemed like ;in his brain gleamed a
tiny lamp, and away from that lamp
he knew nothing. And it began to
dim not flickering as the ordinary
lamp goes out but dimming slowly
and smoothly into darkness. Almost
before he knew it, it was only a pin
point, and then it was not.
There was no confusion and prob probably
ably probably no grief at his death. His church
and his lodge missed him as they
would have missed an useful piece of
furniture;, the business house he had
been with thirty-five years missed
him most, but it not so much, for he
had trained men to take his plac.
Down in their hearts his wife and
children were really glad he was dead
(he knew they would be), for hb
faithfully paid up life insurance gave
them the money they hadr hankered
after for years.
There was a quiet funeral. Not
many members of the church ana
only the old standbys of the lodge
were present. The procession to the
cemetery was short and the flowers
on the grave were not many.
His affairs were in order. He owed
no debts. He had been treasurer of
his lodge and treasurer of his church
for years and every penny of the
funds entrusted to him was right
there. There was a little money in the

How shall we let our loved one go
Who blessed our homes so long,
Dispelling trouble with a smile,
Or cheering with a song ?
How shall we spend the lonely day,
And bear the sleepless night
When they have gone so far away
To succor those who fight?
We surely could not hold them here
When duty's call was plain;
But how shall we live thru the days
Till they return again?
The Red Cross calls us to its aid
Their need is urgent too,
There should not be an idle hand
While they have work to do.
And far away near battlefields
Their cross its way will take
To find our soldiers in their need
And save them for our sake.

even Johndee's insurance wouldn't
last some people forever. Mama is
keeping boarders now and daughter
stays with her, wondering what has
become of the flashy young man who
married and deserted her after what
she thought was a whirlwind court
ship. Son thought he was a gambler,
but he wasn't. He went into the army
to get out of a scrape; he also got
into Leavenworth, and if the war
lasts long enough he may get out in
time to' partly redeem himself.
Was this man really a titewad, or
did he always do what -he thought
was his duty, no matter what it cost ?
A castled gate stood in a pass in a
range of mountains greater than any
this world has ever seen. But there
was no snow on their towering sum summits
mits summits instead a golden radiance like
the sunset paints upon the summer
There was a wide plain before the
gate and on it appeared two men.
They 'seemed to have come a long
way, but they walked toward the
gate swiftly, as tho' they had forever
shed fatigue. The wide portal was
open, but in it stood a mighty angel,
in his hand a gleaming sword.
The two men were the good sport
and the titewad, and when they were
halted they gave the angel their
names. He in turn gave them to a

side inside the gate, and the wise one in turn
told a page angel to go to a certain
place in the .card index room ami
bring hint two cards.
The spirit of the titewad kept silent,
but that of the good sport inquired,
What place is this?"
"This," said the mighty angel, "is
the gate to the Hereafter."
i"And where is Heaven?"
'It is far on beyond. You may atr
tain it by long years of faithful work
for the good of the universe."
" And where is hell?"
The angel pointed with his sword
toa far-distant planet, swathed in
clouds, thru which occasionally the
flames of battle spurted.
"There," said he. "Hell is where
you men spent your lives. You and
your brothers made it for your--selves.n
The page angel returned and gave
two cards to the wise one, who wrote
directions on each and gave them to
another angel; one who held a while
wand tipped with a violet tin tea
jewel. He led the two spirits thru the
portal and along the pass which
steadily widened until they entered an
open space around which were ringed
the buildings of a great city, which
it could be seen was only the begin beginning
ning beginning of the universe beyond. High up
rose the houses of the city, bright,
clean and thronged with busy spirits.
"Here," said the angel, "you begin
your new life. It is granted to you
that you cannot fail. If you could, you
would have passed "with the wicked
into annihilation. But as to how fast
you improve depends upon your yourselves
He pointed with his wand down a
long street that even to supernatural
eyes seemed a thousand miles long.
"You," said he to the good sport,
"must go to the very last building on
that .street and work you way thru
every house and shop on it back to
the gate. They will give you plenty
of instruction, and a swift kick oc occasionally,
casionally, occasionally, and I think you will be
back here in about two thousand
years." .- .;' ;
The good sport bowed and depart departed,
ed, departed, looking very energetic.
Then the angel turned to the tite titewad,
wad, titewad, who all ythis time had said not
a word. 1 ,v
"Son," said the angel, "you were a
pretty good sport while on earth. You
stood for alot of other people's fail failings

kept close tab on you and decided you
were a full-sized man. Trot over to

ATHLETICS IN OUR SCHOOLS
There once existed, and there may
exist yet, in certain benighted parts
of "the north, the mistaken idea that
athletics n in -favor in southern
schools, the basis for the thought be being
ing being the erroneous opinion that our
southern climate is discouraging to
physical exertion. It is, indeed, re
ported that a certain Boston philan
thropist of large brain but ill-developed
body, and a consequent antipathy
for athletic contests generously en endowed
dowed endowed a certain southern college, be because,
cause, because, he said, as the weather was too
hot for young men to be out on the
diamond and gridiron, they would be
able to give a becoming amount of
time to their studies. cy
- Florida schools of a quarter of a
century ago might have given some
support tothe idea, not on account
of the climate, but because it had not
occurred to the scholars to become
sufficiently interested in sports to
follow them in ant organized manner.
Also, the older generation of teachers
was not interested in athletics, and
some of the mossbacks actually dis discouraged
couraged discouraged them. :. ', 'v I:' : 'V.
In these later years, 'however, ath athletics

the south, the pupils taking full in interest

few exceptions realizing that 'sports
are an aid instead of a drawback tc
Football is the principal school
game, partly for the reason that ii.
has been for centuries the favorite in
England, whence it was imported to
this country, and partly because the
Jtifcseball season is over before school
days begin, and does not well begin
uhtil schooldays are over, the pupils
are too busy with their studies of the
last few weeks to try to excel on the
diamond. Y':'.v .' i
Football, however, is a boys' game;
the girls have never taken to it; in
fact, it is only of late years that girls
have taken part in athletics. It has
not been long ago that a girl who took
part in any outdoor game except ten tennis

tomboy, if not a rowdy. This gener generation,

BEFORE THE WAR
By DOROTHY DOUGLAS.
Arline had broken their engagement
because David had given up a splendid
position to join the army. He had given
no reason for his desire to become a
soldier save that he hada "hunch." At
least that had been Davide way of put putting
ting putting It.
i But the "hunch, as David slanging slanging-ly

strong that he had been quite unable
to resist its urge. Something, some
thread of destiny, had drawn Mm from

accounted friends, but from time to

left her to join the army and she
did not even know that her erstwhile
sweetheart was now Lieut. David

The first time she saw a battalion

She knew, too, that David had been

And with this personal remembrance
