Government Sanctioned Subterfuge, t
Someone has said thatr"laws are t
like cobwebs, which may catch flies, 1
bat let wasps and hornets break
through." A striking example of this T
failure of law and constituted au- t
thority to appreenfl and bring to jus- ]
tice violators of the law upon a large <
and conspicuous scale is found in the j
recent disgraceful Dempsey-Carpen
By permitting this fight within her
?borders, the State of New Jersey has
indelibly scarred her escutcheon, i
When certain right-thinking persons
made an effort to psevent the holding
of this shameful affair, they were
told that the law prohibited the hold
ing of prize-fights but did not pro
hibit boxing matches, and since the
prize-fight was held an effort has
been made to prosecute its promoters,
both attempts to protect and uphold
the majesty of the law being thus
thwarted. By taking such a position,
the government has given its official
sanction to a subterfuge, for a way
faring man though a fool knows that
calling it a boxing-match instead of
a prize-fight was merely a subterfuge
to evade prosecution. '
Would upwards of 90,000 people
attend a mere boxing-match, many
of thom paying $50 for the privilege?
The whole thing was a subterfuge of
the first water, misleading and de
ceiving only those who were willing
to be deceived.
Yes, just a squoted above, the law
"catches flies" in the form of small
criminals but permits "hornets" in
the person of national and interna
tional prize fighters to "break
through" without harm or hindrance.

Not until a community learns the
value of co-operation will it grow and
develop to the fullest extent of its
possibilities. One shoulder against the
wheel counts for but very little but
put ninety-nine other shoulders along
side of it, with one strong push all
together, and something will happen.
A very striking instance or object
lesson in community co-operation is
found in thc recent action of the cit
izens of the town of Williston, as
9hown by the following paragraph
taken from the news columns of the
"On July 23 the trustees of the
Williston High School asked a few
representative citizens to meet with
them and discuss the immediate needs
of the school. At this meeting it was
decided to draw up a note-as the
voting of bonds would delay matters
too much-and ask the citizens to
sign same, so that money could be se
cured immediately to erect a new
high school building. A committee
was appointed to ask other citizens
to sign this note, and before night
nearly sixty of the leading men of
Williston had put their names to a
document that means much for the
boys and girls of this section. Not a j
person approached refused to sign.
This is just another instance of the
true Williston spirit, or as is general
ly said around Williston-this is the
Williston way pf doing things."

Moral and Physical Courage Needed.
Law enforcement officers generally
possess physical courage but are
sometimes lacking in moral courage.
In other words, they sometimes keep
their ears te the ground and enforce
a law when it is popular to do so but
are blind to violations or fail to en
force a law when it is unpopular.
For an officer to hold the respect and
confidence of the people, whom he
can not fool or deceive, he must pos
sess moral as well as physical courage
and be unswerving in the discharge
The sheriff of Lancaster county
was recently put to the test and
proved that he possesses moral as
well as physical courage. From some
time the operatives of the Lancaster
cotton mills were on a strike and it
appears that some strikers threatened
those who desired to work in the
mills. On the day that the cotton mills
resumed operation, the sheriff, ac
companied by a number of deputies,
?vent in person to the mill to preserve
>rder, and he was criticised by some
persons, very probably the strikers,
"or his action. By way of explanation
)f this official act, he gave out the
'ollowing statement, which is alto
gether reassuring in this day of
leeming disregard for law:
"On account of many threats to do
violence if the mill doors were open
id, and to prevent those, from work
ng who wished to do so, my depu
ies and myself were there to see to
hat every man, woman, boy and
firl who wished to work might do so
vithout any molestation from -any
iource. I have no apology to make
o anyone and under similar circum
tances I would do th? same thing
tgain, if I never looked inside of an
'I like to see everybody feeling
food, happy and free to do just as
h?y please, so long as they please
o do right and stay within the
>ounds of the law^
'I went to the mill with the deter
nination to see that no one was in
imidated and turned back from work
>y enticements, persuasions or any
)ther procedure. I also went with just
is full determination to see that no
>ne was made to work who did not
?vant to do so." )

The Wonderful Formations in I
Silver Springs. j
The mqst remarkable and interest
ing phenomena presented by this
spring is truly the extraordinary
transparency of the water, in this
respect surpassing anything which
can be imagined. All of the intrinsic
beauties which are invested in it a3
well as the wonderful optical proper
ties which popular reports have as
cribed to its waters, are directly or
indirectly referable to their almost
perfect diaphanity. On a clear and
dalm day, after the sun has obtained
sufficient altitude, the view from the
side of the small glass-bottom boat
floating on the surface of the water
near the center of the head spring, is
beautiful beyond description, and
well calculated to produce a powerful,
impression upon the imagination.
Every picture and configuration of
the bottom of this gigantic basin is
as distinctly visible as if the water
was removed and atmosphere substi
tuted in its pltce.
The shadows of our little boat, of
over-hanging heads and hats, of pro
jecting crags and logs of the sur
rounding forest, and of the vegeta
tion at the bottom were distinctly
and sharply defined; while the con
stant waving of the slender and del
icate moss-like algae, by means of the
currents created by the boiling up of
the water and the swimming of num
erous fish above the miniature sub
aqeous forest imparted a living real
ity to the scene which can never be
forgotten. And if we add to this pic
ture, already sufficiently striking,
those objects beneath the surface of
the water, 'when viewed obliquely,
i were fringed with the prismatic hues,
we shall cease to be surprised at the
mysterious phenomena with which
vivid imaginations have invited this
enchanting spring, as well as the won
derful properties of its waters.
On a bright day the beholder seems
to be looking down from some lofty
airy point on a fairy scene in the im
mense basin beneath him ; a scene
whose beauty and magical effect is
vastly enchanted by the chromatic
tints with which it is invested.
Florida should see that every man,
woman and child in the United States
is acquainted with this exquisite
beauty of the wonderful formations
and the beautiful colorings in the .bed
of these springs; and the trip down
Silver Riv?r is something that no res
ident of Florida or tourist who vis
its the state should miss.
The most wonderful thing abou^
Silver Springs ns the many ro?ms ,oi>j
springs ranging from ten to eighte?li
feet wide, through the solid rock, arid,
each one from thirty-eight to ninety
feet deep. They are all named-Ja-!
cob's Well, the Ladies' Parlor, the.
Shell Room and the Florida Snow-,
storm. The Shell Room is about four
teen feet across, the volume of wa
ter coming up from below is about
eight feet wide and the white shells
are kept in a whirl all the time. The
Ladies' Parlor is about as large as
the Shell Room, with all kinds of
moss fringes covering the walls. Add
ed to this there are all kinds of ferns,
flowers and vines looped together as
[completely as if done by deft fin
gers. The Florida Snow-storm room
is almost square, about eighteen feet
across and ninety feet deep. In the
crevices of the rock at the bottom',
something like white chalk is boiling
up, and the water comes with such
force as to send this white substance
all over the room, and up almost to
the top. It is as white as the drifting
snow, in fact it looks exactly like a
snow storm I have seen in the moun
tains. In going from one room to an
other in this spring the water is not
over four feet deep. I am sure the
whole formation in this spring is a
As I have stated before, the spring
is as large as a city block. There are
nine of these springs, or rooms, which
range from thirty to sixty feet apart,
and from forty to ninety feet deep.
Some of the most wonderful forma
tions here that can be seen in no
other body, of water. The' Bridal
Chamber is the most beautiful, I .
think. After going over all these won
derful rooms in the solid rock, the
man at the wheel will back his glass
bottom boat in a little cove where
the water is twenty feet deep and
call out "Come up little fishes, a man
here wants to see you, come right
one." And they came by hundreds.
He gnve me a loaf of bread and told
me to hold it down in the water, I
did so and the fish devoured the last
crumb from my hand. This is done
daily, and of course, he has them
In my next letter I will tell of a
most pathetic love story, told by
"Aunt Silly," about Claire Douglas
and Bernice Mayo at Silver Springs.

then look around when you are shopping.
Here are a few articles we will mention this week that
will save you money. How's this?
One lot of Lace at. 3?.
