The Star has been looking into the
cotton situation, and has found noth nothing

The Star has interviewed the three

In the second place, there has not
been enough cotton brought in to
warrant the gins starting, if there
was no agreement.;
Mr. Mayo says no cotton has been

Woman Collecting Money for a

Marion County or Elsewhere
The Star referred a few days ago
to the correspondence between Mrs.
William Hocker of this city and Mar Marcus
cus Marcus Fagg, superintendent of the
ChildreVs Home Society of Florida,
in regard to a woman calling herself
the Countess C. O. S. von Schimon,
who, representing herself as the
president of a "self-supporting school
for boys," located near Ocala. has
been trying to collect money for the
same in Florida and other states.
This woman, in her attempts to
raise money, circulated .literature
about the alleged school, a sample of
which is a gorgeously tinted calendar
on which is printed in bold type the
"Honest partners, self-supporting j

.Countess von Schimon claims to be
an Austrian. She told : some parties
her school was "located near Orlando.
After Mr. Fagg had written Mrs.
Hocker regarding the school, and re received

school here", she lit out for New York.
The authorities are after her, and she

It is true that the Florida National

A surprising thing about the list
is the names of a considerable num

men from that unfortunate land are
battling for freedom in our ranks.
The proportion of Russians, Poles,
Bohemians and other : Slavonic peo
pies is very large.
The proportion of German names
is also large, and, strange to say,
there are many more Italians than
Irish. The number of Jewish names
shows that the blood of Joshua, Gid

Mr. Ernest Amos, our efficient state
controller, i has been in town the last
two days, looking after affairs at the
industrial school for girls. Mr. Amos
reports the school doing very well;
so well, in fact, that it is crowded to
its full capacity. There are forty
girls out there; all it will hold, and
most of them are contented and pro
gressing well in their studies. There
cannot be any enlargement of the
school until the legislature meets, as
it takes all the money appropriated
to carry it on. Mr. Amos says the
boys' school at Marianna is also
crowded, having 300 inmates. The
principal trouble with it is that there
is no provision to give so1 many boys
proper amount of teaching. The legis legislature

Scientific Writer Points Out Why the

Scientists have shown that sound not

sight, but that, much in excess of that
sense. It excites feelings that is,
sound pure and simple has a specific
relation to feelings widely different
from that of sight.
Its primary effect was the creating
of moods, Margaret Baldwin writes in
the Atlantic magazine. This being so,
the simple fact Is that sound has far
more to do fundamentally with origin originating

FIRST THOUGHT IS ISOLATION
Aviator Longs for Sound of Human
Voices When He Is Soaring Far
Above the Earth.
I became conscious of a feeling of
loneliness, writes James N. Hall, In the
Atlantic. I remembered what J. B.
had said that morning. There was
something unpleasant In that isolation,
something, to make one look longingly
down to earth ; to make one wonder
whether we shall ever feel really at
home in the air. I, too, longed for the
sound of human voices, and all that I
heard was the roar of the motor and
the swish of the wind through wires
and struts sounds which have no hu human
man human quality in them, and are no more
companionable than the lapping of the
waves would be to a man adrift on a
raft in midocean. Underlying this feel feeling,
ing, feeling, and, no doubt, in part responsible
for it, was the knowledge of the fal fallibility
libility fallibility of that seemingly perfect
mechanism which rode so steadily
through the air; of the quick response
which that ingenious' arrangement of
inanimate matter would make to an
eternal and Inexorable law, if a few
frail wires should part; of the equally
quick, but less phlegmatic response of
another fallible mechanism, -capable of
registering horror, capable, it is said,
of passing its past life in review in the
space of a few seconds, and then
capable jof becoming equally inanimate
Determining Age of Planets.
A novel Idea in estimating the physl
cal condition of planets was put forth
by M. Veronnet before the Academle
des Sciences at a recent meeting In
Paris. He based it upon a calculation
of the quantity of water that rocks
such as granite and porphyry absorb
before becoming perfectly dry.
He said that on the moon all water
has been completely, absorbed by slow
diffusion as the rocks gradually cooled.
Venus Is still surrounded by a thick
layer of vapor, while no water has yet
been condensed on the surface of Mer
cury, this planet being still in a con condition
dition condition in which its geological life has
not begun, and consequently no clouds
have yet formed on Its surface.
M. Veronnet calculates that the
rocks of our earth now contain ab absorbed

A Little Marion County Girl Killed in
Elizabeth Olin, five-year-old daugh daughter
ter daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Olin, of
2316 Boulevard, was fatally injured
yesterday morning when she slipped
beneath the wheels of a motor mov
ing van of Delcher Brothers, and
died a few minutes later in JSt. Luke's
hospital. The child's head and body
were crushed. Henry Simmons, a ne
gro, driver of the truck, was placed
under bond after reporting the acci
dent to the office of Sheriff W. H.
According to several who saw the
accident, the Olin child, with several
other children was hanging to the
tailboard of the truck as it was back
ing out of heavy sand. She is thought
to have lost her hold, slipping to the
ground and being knocked down by
the machine. The truck is said to
have been stalled in heavy sand and
Simmons and another negro had plac placed
ed placed boards under the rear wheels to
give them traction. The children had
been playing around the machine for
some time, according to people who
were on porches in the neighborhood,
and when the truck finally started,
several of them hung to the rear to
"get a ride." f
Witnesses stated that the screams
of the negro Simmons first attracted
their attention after the accident," and
when they reached the scene he was
holding the injured child in his arms.
He declared he was unable to know
that the children were hanging to
the truck, and that the first he knew
of the accident was wThen he heard the
little girl scream. Stopping the truck
he said he jumped to the ground and
found that both the rear and front
wheels had passed over, her body.
Elizabeth was the daughter of Mr.

short time ago made their home at
Kendrick. Her remains will probably
be laid to rest in the Kendrick ceme

"That was some rain yesterday." TVis

We must honor God by surrendering
