Governor Hardee has appointed W.
S. 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

candidates for tne office, for, there be

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."

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.
