DEMOCRATIC ELECTORS The voters must remember that the names of candidates appear in al phabetical order on the ticket. Let them study the following names over every day between now and election, and their eyes and memories will au tomatically guide the pencil when they mark their ballots : Martin Caraballo P. W. Corr. Charles Ej Jones. W.V.Knott. . J. G. Sharon. , : G. B. Wels. ,:' v Patronize business men who advertise.- '. : A man who demoralizes his health and loses his hair debilitates his body and depilitates his head. That always interesting and some times accurate , political prognostica ted Samuel G. Blythe, thinks Cox has a fair chance of election. People of Marion county don't want to put any money into road bonds if the money has to be taken out of their hands and put in the hands of a bunch of politicians. The death of McS weeny proves be yond a doubt that a man can ruin his health by not eating. St. Augustine Record. - - Going without eating surely is a bad habit. The nation that is politically isolat ed misses a lot of trouble Times Union. History will inform you that every nation that has been politically isolat ed had to abandon its isolation or be conquered by another nation. " , If Florida isn't the original Gar den of Edsn, it's at least the best im itation in the world. Jacksonville Metropolis. : '.. .. . ' Right you are, boy. Why don't you always write such sensible things in stead of those bond amendment hallu cinations ? Says the DeLand News: "The sui cide of McSweeny will prove nothing but that there is one less fool in this world. His hunger strike has brought pain to thousands of friends, has em bittered some of Ireland's best pa triots and has lost what might have been a useful life to the unhappy isl and." The News is , informed that Con gressman Frank Clark is stirring up the voters with some mighty good democratic doctrine. Colonel Clark should come to DeLand; we are sore ly in . need of his services. DeLand News. . " We will lend him to you after, to-night. it we really want to provide for the tourists, would it not be better for the state to issue bonds for "building houses than for building roads? Times-Union. If the bond amendment carries, we will build roads this time and houses next time. We can be assessed at least every two years, you know. The press of the state has found the amendment an interesting topic of editorial discussion, with the papers about, evenly . divided. Jacksonville Metropolis. We hope, Friend Metropolis, that your news columns are more reliable than your editorial page. The pro portion of the newspapers of the state is at; .least four to one against bonds. - The Palm Beach ,Post very truth fully says: "Many tears will be drop ped over .the grave of Terence Mc Sweeny, for the world loves a brave man and reverences him who ha3 the courage of his convictions. His death has revealed a new and unsuspected side to the Irish character, a sort of dugged steadfastness for which the Irish have not hitherto received prop er credit. While it seems probable that a prolonged course of starvation ultimately produces a numbness of the physical appetites, and that the ii tensity of the craving for food suf fers some abatement after a certain length; of time, it took courage of the most determined character to court death through such a long and weary period when life was daily within reach. All . men, therefore, however much they may condemn the motive that led to the waste of a life that might have been put to better use, will feel pity for the departed mayor of Cork." TOE COLORED VOTE The letter written by Principal Mc Call of Howard Academy was sensible and timely, and the Star was glad to print it. The Star can corroborate McCall's statement that many of his race are working not only for their uplift but the common good: There are a number of colored people in Marion . county who have sided with the whites on moral and economic is sues. A good many colored men vot ed dry in 1915, and it is probable their votes enabled the prohibitionists to carry the county. They have ; also voted intelligently and disinterested ly on economic issues, and we hope that when election day comes most of them will be found voting against the higher taxation with no guaran tee of adequate return that the bond amendment threatens to saddle upon . As for politics, we are like most Southern men, who don't expect the negro to vote anything but the repub lican ticket in this election. The race is in a state of mind regarding politics that makes it unreasonable for a mod erate and well informed man to expect them to vote democratic. Republican ism is not politics with them; it is a religion. As in some other .religions, thede- J votees are badly deluded. Just after the civil war there was reason for their apotheosizing Lincoln and sup porting the republican party with fa natic devotion. Lincoln and the repub lican party had a right to claim they set the negroes free. There were hundreds of thousands of democrats in the Union army, the war could not have been won without them, but they fought to preserve the - Union, and the democratic party never would have freed the negro. But, had rea son prevailed, the combined sense of right of the nation would in a few more years, have freed the slaves. Reason didn't prevail, war came and set the negroes free and created a problem almost as bad as slavery. The war ended, the soldiers went home, and the republican politicians took charge. They have exploited the negro ever since. They gave him the vote arid used him for their own selfish purposes. They climbed into office over his shoulders and gave him nxt to nothing in return. The white s republicans who had fa genuine interest in the negro aire dead, and their, places: are taken by men as much opposed to them . as the democrats, and far less honest. The democrat tells the negro that he shall not have office and that he does not want his vote; The republicans ask the negroes for their votes, but no white republican is going to vote for a negro for any office, or allow him to have it if he can prevent it. The democrat is honest about it; the re publican isn't. Since 1868, the republicans have had five presidents who fought in the civil war. The first was Grant, cer tainly a. great general. Hayes, Gar field, Harrison : and - McKinley . were good soldiers, but did nothing as sol diers to distinguish themselves. On the other? hand, Hancock, the demo cratic candidate in 1880, was one of the Union's most distinguished gen erals and always a hearty, whole souled American. " ( The day will undoubtedly , come when the negroes will divide their votes and support what they believe to be the best measures ; and the best men, irrespective of party. But that time is afar off yet, and in the meantime we must get along as best we can. It is difficult to measure the states manship, of . Mr. Wm. J. Folks,' who until Nov. 2 will be representative in the legislature from Marion county, and after that a private citizen. We hear that Mr. Folks has again been to Tallahassee, bearing with . him a petition, signed by forty-two voters in his neighborhood. It appears that Mr. Hutchens, the commissioner in that district, has been having a road laid out in one direction, while Mr. Rnlslnq the Family- iKfr I ... i HES waucinM v ; f I . -l 1 1 V ' I m - I i a- child x wMTy m'Jrp. . ? u -&(fD r:?- Folks wanted it laid out in another direction. Mr. Folks, thereupon, col lected his petition and took or sent -it to Tallahassee, m the belief, we sup pose, that the governor had the sayso about county roads, and perhaps would fire Mr Hutchens,. if not the whole board. But even Catts could not find any reason for interference, and turned Mr. Folks' petition down. We fear Mr;. Folks is sad. In all that has been said by the opposition to the state bond amend ment, no evidence has been offered to show that the automobile license fund will not pay all of the interest, refund the bonds and furnish the mainte nance for an adequate system of per manent state roads. Mr. F. O. Miller. If the automobile tax is sufficient, vby have an amendment to the con stitution." The legislature -can tax autos, cows, horses, fruit trees, play ing cards and watches, or any other property in the state, without any amendment. The people can be cer tain if the amendment parries that the owners cf autos are. not e-oinsr to pay any more in proportion, if as much, as the owners of cows, horses and pigs. Our, government never forsakes a constructive ; policy, it never stops in the middle of a project, and we can rest assured that the government will continue , its appropriation until " a definite national ? highway system is complete. Mr. F. O, Miller. Our people right here at home have seen the government practically abandon Oklawaha improvement, and there are many other things it has abandoned, as Mr. Miller should know; but, even if it hadn't, that is no reason why the people of Florida should . surrender a constitutional right and saddle themselves with ex cessive taxation. .The sheriff of Duval county is not a believer in half-way measures in enforcing i the law. He announces that any person, man or woman, who appears at the polls on next Tuesday, with liquor upon his or her breath, as the case may be, will be prosecut ed for a violation of the Volstead law. Miami Herald. Bully for the Duval sheriff. Sim Blitch has invited us to eat Christmas dinner with him at the state prison farm. If you don't see us anywhere Christmas, you may know where we are; and if you don't see us anywhere any more without going to Raiford, , you may continue to know where we are. We might be worse off. It appears that the coal strike in England was brought about mainly by the votes of a lot of boys under twen ty years old, and against the wishes of the older men, many of whom had been in the army and all made sacri fices during the great war. ; Escambia county , votes $2,000,000 to build its own roads. That's the way , to do it! Tampa Tribune. And the way not to do it is to vote for that twenty million dollar bond amendment. - Every 'good citizen' should go around . to Gerig's newsstand and sign that petition. Law and order peo pie should do what they can to keep convicted murderers m ; the peniten tiary. We understand that there will be some changes on the A. C. L. next veek.' It is possible that Sunnyjim may be made a daily again. It's a mistake to tell a woman that with all her faults you love her still, because she has no intention of keep ing still.

Here, in a setting that stirs the imagination, come the sailors of the United States navy to study old world habits and custbms and to see some of the things that appealed to all of us so much while reading ancient history in the class room. Strange to. relate Cairo has changed very little since medieval times, especially the eastern section of the city.
