Fort Lauderdale is going to have a colony of birds of paradise. These are wonderfully beautiful little birds, na tive to Borneo, Papua and adjabent islands, and if a colony can be kept in good health at Fort Lauderdale it will be a distinguishing mark for that en terprising community. The authorities of Kansas made a bad break when they arrested Will iam Allen White, editor of the Em poria Gazette, for displaying in his omee window a placard, expressing sympathy with the strikers. Editor White, of course, has a right to ex press his opinion in his paper, and he has the same right to express it in a placard posted on his own premises. We had not supposed that Governor Allen would make such an ass of him self. .. ' - .'v ' CITY BONDS SOLD modesty of the man. He signs Jus letters jhb.

Cawthorn of DeJTuniak Springs -state superintendent of public instruc tion to succeed Mr. Sheats. Mr. Caw thorn has been serving as state high school, inspector, a highly unnecessary office. , J. H. Workman was the best man in the sate for, the job, but as he has no political influence he had no chance. Mr. Cawthorn will serve only until next 'January, unless he is elected in the November general elec tion. There will probably be several candidates for tne office, for, there be ing no primary, the race is open to all who may desire to make it. The pure lily-white republicans of Florida have nominated W. C. Law son of Orlando for the United States Senate. The executive committee of the "independents," as they call them selves, met in Orlando Saturday, and after nominating Mr. Lawson made the following statement: "It will be the purpose of the 'independents', to confine the issue between the candi dates to the sole question of whether the republicans of Florida shall incor porate into their state platform the declaration that the party' is 'unalter ably) opposed to the election or selec tion of any person to public office or position of public trust who is not a white man." while the, wondering turtle sought the deep.", ' ' Now, we shouldn't be much surpris ed if a full-grown turtle could carry nine hundred pounds on her back. , If Thorn will consult the encyclopedia, he will learn from it that turtles at tain the size of six to seven feet long and three or four feet across, and the weight of six or seven hundred pounds. They are. immensely strong. When one starts from her nest to the sea, propelling herself with her pow erful flippers, she pulls like a Ford tractor. V We have never seen, nor said we have seen, half a dozen full-grown men on n. turtle's back. ' We " have seen that number of boys and girls and children. We have, of ten ridden a turtle into the surf with one or two or three other persons Thirty-five years ago wet weighed 130 pounds dressed and the others were about the same weight or less. In this as in other things -we and our friends used discrimination. . Desiring to ride - on a turtle's back, we didn't crowd her passenger capacity like she was a street car. i ' Judging by what we have heard, turtles along the East Coast are not as large nor as numerous as they were thirty-five years ago. At that time there were only a x few people along those beaches, and they seldom killed a turtle. But now, that they have been hunted for years, they have been greatly reduced, and of course the older and bigger ones have been killed. Turtles live long (if not killed) and grow slowly, but if they are persistently hunted and their eggs dug up, as has been the case for years along the East Coast, they will be thinned out and finally become ex tinct. Most of the turtles killed are fe males. The males are lighter and more active, and seldom - go far enough from the surf to be caught. Thorn used to live by the sea. At least, he lived at West Palm Beach. Sometimes he would raise up his eyes to the stars that . shone over , Bimini, but we doubt that he ever -got down on his marrowbones on the beach to hunt for, turtle eggs. That Thorn person is not as frater nal as he should be. He thought he had caught us in a lie and tried to show us up. We have caught, or though we , caught, him 4 in a great many lies, but have charitably re frained from exposing him. He had better Walk a chalk line. from now on. J. H.
