Perry and Richard Lloyd Jones, publishers of the Jacksonville Journal and the Pensacola Journal, are showing their good faith in Flor-!u? some good streets ida and its future in many ways, the latest of which is an offer tendered through Governor Gary A. Hardee to the state of Florida, to appropriate a generous fund toward a sta'te advertis ing fund. Mr. Perry wires the gover nor that the Perry-Jones newspapers will contribute f 100,000 in advertising, distributed equally over a five-year period in newspapers, including the Perry-Jones papers, throughout the United States, if the state of Florida will appropriate one million dollars a year for five years to advertise Florida is a thorough manner to the rest of the country. Lakeland Star Telegram. We daresay the offer is made in good faith, but the governor can't ac cept such an offer, and we doubt that the legislature can. The Star thinks such a contract would be very unwise. doesn't believe the state should go into the advertising business. A mil- ion dollars a year spent on improv ing the roads will bring more people to the state than twice that amount spent in advertising. As usual, the Star and the majority of the people of Marion county voted together. Ohio rejected the wine and beer amendment. And Ohio went democratic. Kemal Pasha may be a wise man and a patriot, but we doubt his ability to control the bloodthirsty fanatics that make up his armies. We are sorry M;ss Alice Robertson, congresswoman from Indiana, has been defeated. It was an honor to the country as well as her own state to have her in the House. B. R. Riley, who opposed W. S. Cawthon for state superintendent of public instruction, announces that he will seek an injunction to restrain the state canvassing board from officially canvassing returns of votes from sev en counties of the state where his name was left off the ballot, providing the other counties cast enough votes give him victory, when added to the vote cast in the other seven. We don't suppose such action will help Mr. Riley, but the authorities of the coun ties that did not have his name on their tickets must have been prejudic ed. The commissioners of Marion found nothing wrong with his petition. If Mr. E. C. McLeod will come around to the Star office, where he is always welcome, he will find that the leopard has not lost any of his spots, and, as usual, is chumming with the democratic donkey. In the first district, our old friend, Win. E. Gober, ran for Congress on the republican ticket against Repre sentative Drane. We are glad Mr. Gober did not give up his office as dis trict attorney while in the race. The department of labor announces that the retail cost of food increased between September 15th and October 15th in all of the twenty-six represen tative cities in which statistics were compiled. In Jacksonville the increas ed cost was two per cent. Friend of ours told us he voted against all the amendments because he ' wanted the state to get back to constitutional conditions. If he is go ing to sit down and wait for that con stitution to catch up with later day conditions, we fear he will sit until he grows to his chair. Senator Fletcher is urging the president to appoint Judge Nathan P Bryan to fill the vacancy on the bench of the United States supreme court caused by the resignation of Judge Day. As good a man for the place would be hard to find. St. Petersburg Times. Judge Bryan is a splendid man, but a a democrat we fear he has no chance. B. R. Riley, candidate for state nTrintPTidpnt of schools, can be proud of the vote he received in Mar ion. Mr. Riley had no one to speak or work for him in this county, while a number of our teachers interested themselves in the behalf of his oppon ent. But a number of Marion county people were impressed with the idea that he wasn't being given a square deal, and they voted in accordance with that idea. Mr. Riley received 419 votes out of 1003 a pretty good showing for a man unknown to our people and who made no canvass of the county. We daresay Mr. Cawthon is better qualified for the office, but the people of Florida will sooner or Since the continuous rains have abated and let the street paving de partment of our city do a little consis tent work the department has been striving with might and main to give The days have been chock full of work from early until late but the last few days have beenthe hardest of all. Every night for the past two weeks the Fordson tractor and its roller have been going ud and down the block of pavement laid that day, getting it well packed so that the next rain could not damage it, but last night in addition to the noise of the tractor there was a new suthI and anxious citizens who inves tigated found that a full crew of haul ers were at work hauling brick to the curb in front of the library so that the brick laying crew could continue work this morning unmolested and un- delayed. When a city does its paving both day and night and does not even take time to sleep it looks like the town is wide-awake. CAUGHT EVENTUALLY So far as the Star is concerned, old man McLeod is welcome to come back into the democratic party if he wants to. Mac is an honest and kindhearted old boy and really means to do right. His little excursion into independent- ism has had no result except to dem onstrate now useless it is for a man to buck the democracy in this county He had less than half Meffert's vote, but the entire element supporting McLeod cast their ballots for him, while probably not more than half Meffert's friends went to the polls. (Fort Lauderdale Herald) Sooner or later the criminal will be caught up with, lhe booze runner may get away with the business for several months, maybe a year or two, );?t eventually the law enforcement officers are going to get him. The cthor day in Missouri a train robber was killed, who was known as the veteran of that class of business. He began robbing trains when he was oung man and a greater number of such crimes were charged to him than to any bandit in the country. He serv ed twelve years in the penitentiary for one of the robberies. He was released from prison a few years ago and again took up his nefarious business. He was 53 years old and when he attempt ed to rob a train at Wittenburg, Mo., last week and he was killed by officers who had kept him under constant surveillance.

CONDON Reo Dealer Next to Fire Station BURBAXK OKLAWAHA Bogue, H. E. H. Mil- KENDRICK All democrats will laugh at the de feat of Beveridge in Indiana. Bever- idge was nominated for senator by the Indiana republicans against an ad ministration candidate, and all repub licans and many democrats took it for granted he was going to be elected. His democratic opponent, Ralston, a very capable man, was hardly spoken of outside his state. And now he has put it over the famous Beveridge in the most approved manner. Kendrick, Nov. 9. Mrs. Benson of Wildwood has been spending a few days with her sister, Mrs. J. N. Tiller. Mr. and Mrs. C. A. McCully spent last week-end with the former's par ents at Fellowship. Mr. J. W. Lyles was visiting his mother, Mrs. Anna Lyles, last weekend. Miss Laura Tyler spent the week end with her parents in Summerfield. We still have dengue in our midst but are glad to report all patients much improved. A good many Americans, in think ing of Turkey, have the erroneous idea that it is a small country with com paratively few people. A good look at a map and a comparison with other countries will undeceive them. Tur key in Asia comprises Asia Minor, most of Armenia, Kurdistan and a part of Syria. It is larger than any European country, except Russia, and has a population of at least 20,- 000,000, of whom 12,000,000 are Turks Have you fixed up a Thanksgiving box for the homeless kiddies at the Children's Home Society of Florida at Jacksonville? Daddy Fagg says that if every family in Florida would make a small donation of food to the society there would be provisions enough to last the home for the coming year. The Children's Home Society of Florida is the greatest institution within the borders of the state. It is caring for hundreds of little, helpless children, who would actually suffer if it wasn't for the home. Let's all send a little box to the kiddies up there and help to make their Thanksgiving dinner a happy event. Fort Lauderdale Her aid. The Star endorses this advice and passes it on to the people of Marion county. TOWN PESTS .

Times-Union. How much money will the growers receive after the commission and transportation men are paid? Says the Times-Union: "Seems en tirely reasonable to give at least sev eral hours to the 'boys' of the Amer ican Legion on Armistice Day, Sat urday. Business men will lose noth ing, but gain much of respect, by granting the legion request for closing places of business during the parade of world war veterans." Oklawaha, Nov. 8.
