print-the report for less than $125.
That is no more than the job is worth.

The Long Arm of Mercy
By DR. FRANK CRANE
The Red Cross is the Long Arm of v Mercy.
It is the Kindness of Mankind organized.
In Man is an Angel and a Devil, a Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde. The Red Cross is the Good, aroused, energized to
thwart the Bad.
It is the best antidote we know to the bane of war.
There are other Charities, more or less helpful. The
Red Cross is the mightiest of all Charities, the Love and Pity
of all men made supremely efficient.
If, as Emerson said, "sensible men and conscientious
men all over the world are of one religion," this is the ex expression
pression expression of that religion.
The Red Cross is Humanity united in Service Service-It
It Service-It asks no man's opinion; only his need.
Black or White, Friend or Foe, to the Red Cross there
is no difference; it only asks: "Who is Suffering?" And
to him it goes.
The Red Cross is so Efficient that Governments recog recognize
nize recognize it; so Pure in its purpose that whoever wishes well his
fellow men, desires to help it; so Clean in its administration
that the most suspicious can find no fault in it.
The Red Cross not only seeks to alleviate the cruelties
of War; it is the expression of those human sentiments that
some day will put an end to War.
It is the impulse of Love, striving to overcome the im impulse
pulse impulse of Hate.
It is Mercy's co-operation struggling against War's ri rivalries.
valries. rivalries. It is the one Society in which every Man, Woman and
Child should be enrolled; for it knows no sects, no preju prejudices,
dices, prejudices, no protesting opinion; the human being does not live
that does not feel that the starving should be fed, the sick
tended and the wounded healed.
Majestic and divine is this Long Arm of Mercy; it finds
the fallen on the battlefield, it brings the nurse and the
physician to the victim in the hospital; it leads the weeping
orphan to a home; it feeds the starving, cares for the pest pest-smitten
smitten pest-smitten whom all others abandon, and pours the oil of Help
and Pity into the bitter wounds of the World.
Where a volcano has wrought desolation in Japan, or a
Flood in China, or a Hurricane in Cuba, or a Famine in
India, or a Plague in Italy, or ravaging Armies in Poland,
Servia or Belgium, there flies the Red Cross, the Angel of
God whom the fury of men cannot banish from the Earth;
and. to the Ends of the Earth, over all the ways of the Seven
Seas, wherever is Human Misery, there is extended, to bless
and to heal, its Long Arm of Mercy.

Mil. DAVIS RECORD
Our clever young friend, Mr. Chas.
E. Davis, candidate for Congress
against Mr. Frank Clark in the sec second
ond second district, has been among us much
in the last few weeks on visits that
would have been- mutually pleasant
had there been no string tied to them.
Mr. Davis is a charming lad and had
he gone after the suffragette vote
would have won it hands down. Why
he didn't try for it is unknown to us,
unless perhaps he was afraid it
might have lost him votes on tht
Mr. Davis has been busy during his
campaign trying to punch holes in the
- -record of his opponent. He has suc succeeded
ceeded succeeded a little better than Don Quix
ote did in his tilt against windmills
he has found one mistake in thirteen
years, and inserting his lance in the
hole thus left often he has swung
onto it until the genial Florida breeze
has lifted both he and Rosinante
clear from the ground.
To look at Mr. Davis, so amiable iy
he, so like a cat that has just consum consumed
ed consumed a canary, you wouldn't think he
had such a thing as a record of his
own. Yet he has, and it is some re
cord, too. If he should go to Con Congress
gress Congress and make as many mistakes as
he has made in the legislature well,
he would not be in any danger of
anybody contesting his third term,
for the people would never give hin
a chance at a second.
Of all the counties of the district,
Marion is the one Mr. Davis should
expect the least from. For when he
was here last week and the week be
fore, expatiating on Frank Clark's
solitary error, he took good care not
to tell the voters of Marion that h
was a willing helper in the attempt
by a small and selfish bunch of poli
ticians to cut a fifth of our county off
from the main body. Howeevr, if you
will read page 1826, Journal of the
House, 1915, relating to the bill ere
ating Bloxham county, you will sew
that Mr. Davi3 voted for the bill.
The citizens "of Marion and Levy
counties have no reason to love any anybody
body anybody who supported this bill. This
, county sent to represent it two of its
ex-commissioners, both well acquaint acquainted
ed acquainted with all its affairs, yet Mr. Davis
and his pals treated them as men un unworthy
worthy unworthy of consideration; they disre disregarded
garded disregarded the rule of senatorial courtesy
toward the senator, who represented
the district they caused a. lot of
trouble, expense and hard feeling,
and it is no fault of theirs that Mar Marion
ion Marion is not today a lopped and un un-symmetrical
symmetrical un-symmetrical county. If Mr. Davis
had treated our representatives in the
legislature with proper respect in
1915, he might have had some reason
to come among us in 1918 smiling
and telling us what a good friend he
would be to us if we helped to give
him Mr. Clark's place in Congress. We
wonder why Mr. Davis did not, while
at Romeo a few days ago, tell the
people of that loyal little precinct
how hard he hnrJ triori fn Vil

them from Marion. Had he forgotten,
or did he want others to forget? A
good many of those at Fairfield were
also from the contested precincts, but
Mr. Davis never said "Bloxham"
However, this is only our own
neighborhood matter. We might for forgive
give forgive if Mr. Davis had shown himself
a statesman in all other things. But
did he? The following record doesn't
read that way.
Mr. Davis likes prohibition votes-
in fact, he likes any votes, but now
that prohibition is in the saddle he
wants prohibitionists to think he is
their staunch friend. But we find
that when a member of the House in
1909 he voted against the prohibition
amendment. See pages 513, 514, 515,
516 and 517, Journal of 1909.
He also voted against house bill
VAZO oeing a Din to separate wnite
and negro prisoners and male and
female prisoners in the county jails
of the state. See page 927, Journal
In the session of 1911 Mr. Davis
voted against s'enate bill 120, the
! same being a bill providing that in
suit3 on insurance policies a substan substantial
tial substantial compliance with the terms and
conditions of such policies should be
deemed sufficient, and suits might be
maintained against the companies or

tracts. contracts. This bill passed 23 to 2. See
page 730, Journal of 1911.
Mr. Davis voted against senate bill
75, a bill to protect the people against
compensation, compromise and. agree agreements
ments agreements between insurance companies.,
whereby rates of insurance were
raised or fixed. Pages 734, 735 Jour Journal
nal Journal of 1911. v
On senate bill No. 4, a bill provid providing
ing providing for an inheritance tax, Mr. Da Davis
vis Davis did not vote, but was paired with
Senator Cone, and the statement in
the Journal is that if both were pres present
ent present Cone would vote "yea" and Davis
would vote "nay." Pages 933, 934
Journal of 1911.
Mr. Davis also voted against sen
ate joint resolution No. 219, relating
to suffrage and eligibility and includ
ing what is known as the "grand
father clause." Pages 1269, 1270,
Journal of 1911.
In the session of 1913, Mr. Davis
voted against house bill 161, a bill
amending Chapter 5885, Laws of
Florida, creating a state board of
pensions, etc. The bill passed by 26
to 1. (Page 1698, Journal of 1911).
Mr. Davis explained his vote by say saying
ing saying the bill would increase, pensions
by $120,000 a year in the aggregate.
This was a bill to increase pensions
of Confederate veterans.
During the session of 1913, when a
substitute for house bill No. 168 was
pending, an amendment was offered
to the bill requiring street railways
renting advertising space in cars to
pay an annual tax of $5 per car. Mr.
Davis voted against this amendment,
which would have taxed the corpora corporations
tions corporations for the benefit of the people.
(Page 2002, Journal 1913.)
At the session of 1915, when house
joint resolution No. 1, prohibition
amendment ( came up Mr. Davis voted
against this resolution. (Page 274,
Journal of 1915). The resolution had
passed the house by the requisite
three-fifths vote., The vote in the
senate stood 18 for and 13 against,
but Senator Blitch changed from yea
to nay, so he could move to recon
sider. Blitch's vote made 19 and if
Davis had voted yea there would

he came to deliver a message not only
to this class, but to those to come
after. That he wanted to speak espe
cially of his country's greatest needs
which was service, in the larger sense
of ministry. Service to our country,
to, humanity, and its mtellectua
needs. He. especially advised the
young men of the graduating class
lo go on as far as possible. That the
highest degree of intellectuality was
necessary to the success of this war,
as well as every other phase of work.
He advised the boys especially to go
to college, and to study and enlighten
themselves as far as possible before
they were called. His entire discourse
was listened to with the closest atten
tion and was one of the finest ever de
livered in this city.
The high school quartet again de
lighted the audience with the heart heart-stirring

fervor and received hearty applause.

In the folk dance, "Narcissus,"

of beauty that will linger long in

THE RED CROSS
Collecting money for the Red Cross
is not all a picnic, as R. R. Carroll of
the Star found today. Mr. Carroll,
who is on the soliciting committee,
went into Hooper's barber shop and
told the young man, D. C. Robinson,
left in charge by Mr. Hooper, that he
had been assessed. This made the
young man wrathy, and after some
heated remarks, he advanced on Mr.
Carroll with a knife evidently built to
stick" sheep with. Mr. Carroll, who
carries no knife except a delicate lit little
tle little manicure tool, prudently retired
across the street to his office, where
he equipped himself with an axle of
a Maxwell car and went back to wind
up the controversy. He was aecorri

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of U3 realize
that we are helping the enemy when wewaste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And. if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
