Fifty-two years .ago our North and
South had finished fighting out their
differences, and now they are stand
ing by each other against all enemies,
and for the rights of humanity.
Fifty-two years from now, we hope;
all the nations of the world will be

Speaking of food conservation, an
old citizen of Ocala remarks that on
every residence block in this city
there is probably food enough wasted
to feed one moderate-sized family,
and this applies to all American
towns. If the American people would
cook only what they want for each
meal, instead of stowing away so
much in their ice-boxes, to almost air
ways have a portion of it thrown
away, they would save enough to feed
half a million mouths a month.,
Joseph Fenouil, a French farmer,
has just received the military medal
for inventing a means for regulating
the aim of cannon. Fenouil, an adju
tant in the 110th artillery, developed
unsuspected technical knowledge at
the front. His invention has been
adopted by ,the army. ; He could not
have even conceived of the invention
without a knowledge of those, prob
lems of Euclid which our Catts says
a farmer boy shouldn't waste time in
There has arisen in our midst a
tribe of writers who advance the
theory that the entire German people
is now and has been for many years
x race of semi-fiends, believing in
their right to inflict any suffering on
dominion. We are loth to lose our
belief in the innate goodness of the
German people. They are obsessed
now, but we believe , the time is com
ing, tho it may be years away, when
they will be their kindly selves
ogain. By this, we mean the people,
noi the military caste.
We sympathize with the negroes
who are being mobbed in East St.
Louis. They went .there to obtain
honest work and their principal
crime was that they obtained it. Some
of them are toughs, of course, but the
police of every southern city contend
with worse as a part of their regular
duty. It is no wonder that they arm
ed themselves and fired on policemen
they knew wouldn't protect them. And
we doubt not that when the trouble
began that every white ruffian in East
St. Louis and vicinity was only too
glad to help beat and kill the poor
darkeys. They had better come back
to the' South, where there is always
work for them to do, and where even
the white men who "cuss them out"
one minute for laziness will feed them
the next. V
The proposition of the Atlantic
Coast Line in regard to this division
is to take off the two night trains, 37
and 38. between Jacksonville and St.
Petersburg and instead to run trains
between '.' Sanf ord and St. Petersburg
over the old Orange Belt route; also,
to run trains 9 and 10 between Ocala
and Jacksonville instead of between
Leesburg and Jacksonville. It's the
Star's opinion that the. people between
Jacksonville and Trilby should make
a strong fight against 37 and 38 be
ing diverted from their present line.
They 'are two very useful trains for
people between Gainesville and Jack
sonville, and almost as much so to the
people of Ocala. They are more use
ful to the -people of Leesburg and
Ocala than 9 and 10. Beside, they are
trunk line trains, and it's much bet
ter to have them running over the
main line ihan over a sidetrack. If
the A. C. L. will keep 37 and 38 on
this' division, it might be allowed to
take off 9 and .10, which most of the
people along its run could dispense
with without much . inconvenience."
Mr, Flournoy, former attorney for
the L. & N. railroad, an erstwhile
leader of the corporation forces in the
senate, and Hon. J. B. Hodges, counsel
for the Georgia Southern railroad,
and railroad lobbyist, who are recog
nized as being "very close" to Mr.
Catts, have both been proffered posi
tions of high honor and responsibility
by the governor. Mr. Storrs, lobby
ist for. the telephone interests at the
last legislature, has' also been given a
fat job. Little wonder that Peter O.
Knight and his railroad-corporation
crowd are delighted with the policy
of the governor.Palatka Times-Her

Our Catts denounces corporations
and gives or offers jobs to their
prominent representatives. Our Catts
says the Roman Catholic church is
the greatest menace to America, but
he appoints a Catholic and & Knight

one of the biggest counties in - the
state. Our Catts was elected as the
nominee of the prohibition party, but
he appoints a prominent liquor man
to serve in one of the highest offices

. The Times-Union has it doped out
about right when it says:
" 'Somewhere in France,' 'A port
in France 'A French seaport' these
are specimen date lines to news from
across the water in these fine days of
mystery. ... Doesn't it all seem foolish ?
Unless the Americans landed at some
port of southern France, it is prob
able that German airmen watched
them as they landed. It is almost
certain thaf the German government
knows where the American "troop's
are. . This new fashion of mystery
keeps only the American people in the
dark. "A dispatch dated from Brest
or Cherbourg or Rouen or wherever
it is actually sent from would tell the
American people what they do not
know, and if it were sent to Gfermany
would tell the: German government
only what it already knows."
HELL TOO GOOD FOR HIM
Virgil G. Hinshaw, chairman of the
national committee of the prohibition

The following writen by Richard
H. Edmonds of the Manufacturers'
Record shows the estimation in which
Emperor William of Germany is held
by the greater part of the civilized
people of the world:
- Seated on his throne of flame, with
the fumes of burning sulphur as in
cense, the Ruler of Hell surveyed the
mighty throng of kindred spirits.
They had been called in from their
work throughout all the universe to
report on all the evil that they had
been able to accomplish or that in
their devilish ingenuity they had been
able to plan. From the myriads of
peopled worlds where Satan's minions
had been striving to put into action
all of the evil .influences upon which,
through the unnumbered . centuries,
they had fed their imagination, came
the leaders of Satan's kingdom.
One by one they sought to win the
favor of the Ruler of Hell by telling
of diabolical deeds, each trying to
surpass the other as they told of sins
that had never before been heard of
even in these infernal regions. As
Satan listened to these chosen spirits,
with all their hell-born devices to pull
down virtue and uplift sin, there
crossed his countenance the faint
glimmer of a smile in a region where
laughter is unknown the Satanic
smile of satisfaction at how well hi3
messengers had learned their lessons
and improved on his teachings. -
Presently, however, there came one
who, despite the effort to suppress
him, demanded a full hearing.
"This region," said he "has too long
been ruled by incompetence and me
diocrity. "Through the ages we have been
taught that Satan held his position
and his power because in all the wide
universe there had never been found a
demon who 6ould match him in vile
ness or who could, sometimes in the
guise of a saint and sometimes in
that of a fiend, work such indescrib
able, horrors upon all of God's creat
ures. - - .
"We have been told that no other
demon in all the universe had the
imagination to plan or the power to
wreak upon the innocent such sorrow
and suffering as Satan.
"We have been told that for devil
ish ingenuity in devising new sins
and : new ways of destroying virtue,
in tearing down all that is good, and
in spreading broadcast through un
numbered worlds unending sin and
suffering, Satan had never been
"But though this may all have been
true in the past, it is no longer true.
The right of rulership by reason of
superiority in evil no longer belongs
to him who has dominated us.
"I have come from earth, where for
nearly three years it has been my
mission to study the work of one who
has devised more evils and more sin
and more sorrow and suffering than
any of us have ever before known in
air our wide travels from world to
"I have found one who outclasses
"I have found one in comparison
with whom as a deviser of evil and
sin and the creator of sorrow Satan
is but a cheap piker.
"I have brought with me the one
who, by reason of his abilities to mur
der innocent women and children and
to cause such outrages upon them
that murder itself seems angelic by
comparison, and with unmatched hy
pocrisy claims that he is a co-partner
with the Almighty in his devilsh work,
is justly entitled to rule this region.
"Since the beginning of time there
has never before been one who gloried
in such campaigns of murder and outraging-
of women and children as, he
has gloated over.
"Other men have committed .these
crimes, but in doing so they have
shrunk back abashed before even the
"But I have found one who glories
in these achievements.
"I have found one who has rejoiced
in unspeakable outrages committed
by his army ; upon innocent women ;
one who has covered the world with
voiceless woe; one who has made
rape an honor and murder a crown of
glory. . v;'-!
: "I have found one who has made
the name of his people, honored in the
past, now a hissing and a by-word,
hated by all the world; despised -as
have been no other people in all hu
man history; a stench in the nostrils
of all decent men and women; one
who turned his army and navy into j
cold-blooded murderers and ravishers
of women and children, and made
them glory in their deeds of evil.
"I have found one who, in times of
peace, covered all the world with his
spies; one who, under the guise of
friendship, was for years preparing to
stab to death everyone who stood be
tween him and his lust of world
power; one who has educated his
once well-meaning people into active
agents to commend his devilish work,
even some men and women who pro
fessed to be followers of the Son of
"I have found one who bought the
services of men and women in other
lands who sold themselves to try to
betray civilization for even less than
Judas demanded, and who, like Judas,
claimed to be doing good when they
knew the rottenness of their own
"Indeed, I have found one who has
planted in every land the Judas fruit
of treachery and deceit, even among
those who professed to higher things,
and who have made even Judas mourn
that they outmatched him, since he
betrayed his Lord only once, while
the Kaiser and his crowd have un-
ceasingly betrayed all humanity.
I have found one who, by these
pre-eminent abilities in outclassing
Srtan, has a right to. assume ruler
ship of Satan's kingdom."
The Satanic smile had faded from
the face of the Evil One. At first
bitter and relentless hatred possessed
him as he listened to one who had
dared to suggest a new rules, and he
sent forth his minions to fire with in-
tenser heat the lower depths of the
lower hells into which to drive this
traitor; but just then- the doors of
Hell swung open and Satan saw the
spirit of Kaiser Wilhelm enter. In
stantly he realized, that his rule was
at an end. He saw that his vaunted
superiority in .sin and deviltry was as
nothing when matched against that of
the Kaiser. As he slunk away, he saw
escorted to his seat of burning brim
stone the one who on earth had out
matched him, and whom he felt was
justly entitled to the rulership of his
And then as the .new ruler took his
seat upon the throne of blazing brim
stone there appeared in the flames
that played around his head a picture
of a great ship in whose side there
was a gaping hole. Standing in the
center of this there appeared Kaiser
Wilhelm calling to his demons to
bring to him the helpless babies and
innocent women. With fiendish glee
he caujfht them and gloatingly fed
them to the ravenous sharks below.
The onlookers shuddered at the sight,
realizing that even Hell had sunk to
hitherto unknown depths of deprav
Suddenly, however, the fiends of
the lower world, who for a moment
had been dazed by the appearance of
the new ruler upon the throne: arous
ed themselves to this degradation of
Hell and determined to rid even that
region of one who had so surpassed
in deviltry all that Hell had ever
known. In mad rebellion they rose.
With one great convulsion Hell vomit
ed him forth, for even its inhabitants
of murderers and thieves, the lewd,
the lascivious and all the unrepentant
throng could not sink to such depths
as to permit him to remain.

The United States bureau of fish

fish, which Is found in large numbers
off the coasts of the Northwestern
states and Alaska. It has been almost
entirely neglected as a food, although
of high quality.
The sable fish Is also called the
black cod. Last fall fishermen caught
the sable fish in large quantities. Most
of the catches went into cold storage.
In order to bring this fish to the
attention of dealers, thereby causing
a more general consumption, the fish

... Origin of the Locomotive Whistle.
On a level crossing between Bag
worth and Thorton in England, on
May 4, 1S33, there occurred an acci
dent which gave us the locomotive
whistle. Stephenson's locomotive
"Samson" crashed into a cart contain
ing 50 pounds of butter and 80 dozen
eggs, says the Popular Science Month
ly. Following the accident a meeting
of the directors was called, at which
Stephenson suggested that a whistle
blown by steam be used to give warn
ing of an approaching train.
