FRENCH ARE GLAD
TO SEE OUR BOYS
7 Mrs. J .F. Webber has received the
following letter from her son, Wellie,
now with our other boys in France:
France, October 3, 1918.
Dear Mother: I am well and hope
this finds all at home the same. Had
a fine trip over and was only sick a
little two days. Had the pleasure of
seeing George Wenzel in London, but
did not' have a chance to talk to him
' as our time was limited there. France
v is wonderful and it is a very funny
sight as we march through towns to
- have every one run to windows and
doors and look at us as though we
were a circus coming to town. We are
still going and anxious to get at the
Boches. Your son, . Wellie.

DIDN'T SFI10 IT
The Fake Report of an Armistice that
, Was Spread All Over the
, Country Yesterday
'Associated Press)
New York, Nov. 8. False reports
that 1 Germany had , accepted the ar
mistice and fighting had ended threw
the country into dlimium yesterday
and turned out. to be the greatest hoax
of recent years. Official assurances
that the report was false failed to
check the almost riotous demonstra
tions which swept over many Amer
ican cities. The dispatch, which wa&
cabled from France to the United
Press and circulated through the
country, declared the armistice was
signed at 11 o'clock in the morning
and fighting ended at 2 inthe after
noon.
. Official denial was given by the
state department at Washington and
tlie foreign office in London. How
ever, the .false report was not easily
overtaken, and demonstrations ap
proaching hysteria ruled in many
cities. Business was suspended,
schools closed, bells were rung and
whistles shrieked. -, Prayers were of
fered in churches and parading citi
zens jammed the streets. The stock
exchange was closed.
CATTS HAS REMOVED BOONE
Governor Lays' Blame for the Marian
na Disgrace on Swearingen,
Sheats and Crawford
To the Citizens of Florida: .
I Gentlemen: No one more deeply de
plores the terrible conditions existing
at the reform school than does your
governor. When I became governor
I instituted a great fight agrinst the
present superintendent of said home,
but I had only one vote in the cabinet
meeting, and could never get him re
moved. I saw, the first time I went to
this institution, that it was not up to
the other institutions in the state, in
the point of efficiency, cleanliness,
feeding and the general up-keep of
the personnel of the boys. In fact, it 1
has never been a school at all, and. the
name school has been a mockery, and
I tried my best to get Mr. Boone, the
superintendent, removed, and to puv
in an up-to-date man, . I could never
influence the board to take any action
on-this condition. One trouble of this
state is, and I have fought this with
all my power. Governor Trammell in
stituted committees to visit the dif
ferent institutions in the state, and
Mr. Amos, Mr. Luning and Mr. Mc
Rae visit the state convict farm and
the girls' industrial school at Ocala;
Mr. Sheats, Mr. Swearingen and Mr.
Crawford visit the insarfe asylum at
Chattahoochee and theboys' reform
school at Marianna. The trouble of
this-condition is that the visiting
committees from one part of 'the in
stitutions do not wish to have any
thing to do with the conditions in the
other institutions. Therefore, it is im
possible to get the best action in re
gard to these institutions, and I have
urged upon these gentlemen that this
visiting committee business be cut out
entirely, and that all members of th
governor's cabinet, together with
himself, visit all the institutions . in
the state, but oftentimes, the visiting
committee of the oilier districts does
not know about the conditions that I
report, and we cannot get action. I
am, in the meeting today, going to
insist firmly that there be no more
visiting committees, and ' that Mr.
Boone is removed at once, and thav
we put this boys' industrial school on
