- _ *«votedto Homo IntoreMt*, Local and Oouoral Now*. _VOLUME XXX CEREDO, WAYNE CO., W. VA., WEDNESDAY. MARCH 247 1915 NUMBER W~ FISHING IN THE SOUTH — Dr. Sturgill Writes of His and Charley Hoard’s Trip and Sojourn in Florida. Mr. Editor: As per request I will write for the readers of your paper ot some of my experience" and observations on this my second trip to ‘'Sun* kissed Florida.'' On December 29th last Mr. Cb*»s. P. Hoard and my self leftCeredo to "pend the winter in a land less subject to ice and snow than is the Ohio valley. Mr. Hoard took a train for Cincinnati and I took one going to Winchester, Ky. It was understood that Mr. Hoard was to leave Cincinnati the following morning and- I was to take the same train at Winchester at 10:45 next morning. The South Atlantic Exuress over the L. & N. pulled into the station at Winches ter and I boarded the forward sleep er to look for Charley and be climbed off the rear sleeper on which he had engaged berths for both of uh, to look for me. 1 told the conductor 1 wanted to thke the sleeper which went through to At lanta and he told me the whole train went to that city. Well, I thought that beat the baud that that whole half mile of sleepers was gring to Atlanta. There must be something doing down there. But I didn’t spend much lime cogitating over what they were doing in Atlanta, for I wanted to fiud Charley Hoard and 1 wanted to find Kim p d. q. »o i went through the front ear from the rear- and not seeing any thing of Charley I started through the car just in front which turned out to be the dining car. I asked the conductor of this our very im portant adjunct to the train if he bad seen anything of Charley Hoard. He replied that he had not had the pleasure of meeting the gentleman wsked for and that if he had it was not at all likely that he would he in that particular car at that time of day. I thanked him and informed bim 1 would find Charley Hoard if 1 had to walk clear back to Cincin nati to do it. By this time 1 was getting a little riled and turned and •tarted toward Cincinnati passing from one car to another making, I should think, about 2 mile- an hour, while the train was going toward the South Pole at about 60 miles' an hour. It was evident that, walk as * bard as I could, I was losing some thing like 58 miles per hrfur. The situation looked discouraging to say the least, and I became quite exas perated for, at the rate I was trav. eling, 1 figured 1 would reach Cin cinnati early in the fall of the year of 1919 and perhaps Charley would not be there then. But I continued my pedestrian stunt toward the rear of the train looking into every car and seat for ('barley, and in cidently cussing (to myself, of course), the whole L. N. K’y sys tem and ail its employee from the conductor down to the president for their carelessness in leaving Char ley in Cincinnati. On I tramped, still averaging about 2 miles north and 58 miles south when to my great joy and surprise on entering the 'steenth car I ran jam into Charley coming south at about 62 miles an hour looking for me. How 1 remember that surprised and satisfied grin which spread over' Charley’s face when he saw me, j Well, that meeting was as cordial as though we bad not seen each other for half a century. He con. ducted me back to the rear car, which was a combined sleeper and observa’iun car, and w« were soon i seated iu the observation section I contentedly pulling away at our 'cigar* and laughing over our frantic search for each other. I apologized to the railroad company, after the j conductor had left our car, for the many naughty things 1 had said about it and thanked them one aod all for their kinduees in looking Charley up before leaving Cincin nati. The wind was blowing and it was snowing and freezing when we left Winchester, but soon the blue grass pastures were Hitting by us, and as we settled back into our easy chairs and the warmth of the car drove away all care we could not help casting defiant glances at the saucy little snow Hakes as they beat against the glass walls of the car. Our train was scheduled to stop at oul? three points between Win chester ami Atlanta and with these few halts to retard our progress we felt happy in the thought that we were running away trom that bliz zard eveu as a jack rabbit runneth away from a hamstrung donkey. We reached the third stop (Knox ville) at 5:30 p. m. It was still cold and gloomy. At 9:30 we pulled into Atlanta. 1 lere onr I rain w as switch ed from the L. & N. to the Central of Georgia and soon again we were Hying southward. Soon after leav ing Atlanta we retired to our berths. Kor a time things went along smoothly enough, but about the time I began to feel real cosy and comfortable there arose above the din and clatter of the swiftly mov ing train and the shrill screech of the engine’s whistle a noise which sounded somewhat like Phaiaoh Chapman sawing on his big base fi Idle and the loot, toot, toot of a strong and healthy calliope. At first I supposed the sounds were produced by some new and devilish innovation of the Central of Georgia K’y company for the entertain ment of its passengers and I was expecting to be charged extra for it; so 1 quietly raised my head from my downy pillow determined not to miss anything and to get all 1 could for my money. I listened for a few moments wondering what kind of a contraption they had been able to put together that would give off such a volume and variety of tODee without wrecking the train. I had just about concluded that the engi-> neer bad, for some good reason, applied the emergency brake and that the noise as well as the unusual vibration of the car was produced by the tracks sliding on the rail to gether with the bellowing of some half a dozen Georgia bulls, when a porter came pussy.fooling down the aisle and I reached out an! stopped him and inquired whether it was a derailment or had we sideswiped a cattle train. This dusky son of Main listened a moment, pointed to I the berth opposite'mine and lan guidly and rnornfuliy passed on. It reached over and gently parted the! curtains of No. ft and then saw my friend and traveling companion C. P. Hoard with his face turned sky. ward and making more fuss over a little nap of* sleep than any man or' set of rnen 1 ever listened to. 1 '< crawled back and decided there was but one thing under the circum* i stances to do. So I dressed, went back to the rear of the car, lighted a cigar and sat there and smoked and watched the switch lights whiz ! by like lightning hugs in a harrU! 1 cane the remainder of the night, j We have generally managed to oe I ouny adjoining rooms at the va»i. ous hotels at which we have stopped since and I have become thoroughly ! convinced that an hotel in the south bat partition walls sufficiently bomb I'r ’°f *o prevent my being forcibly r» minded of that uigbl on tbe South Anm-ic Express, with Charley 11 • >«r«* sleepiug on the opposite side. But I have gotten used to it no a; expeot it; even look for ward to it; in fact can’t sleep wi'h* ou* it. Wh-izz-z b u-z z-bootu boom! The next morning the clouds and ihe gloom had been left behind and the sun rose in a clear sky as we rushed along through southern Uuor gia. Charley knew nothing of the “wreck ’of the night before. We could notice a li*tie frost on the bouse tops, but the gardens looked fresh and green. We stopped at Clifton to change engines and a na tive came aboard and we learned through hi in that they had had snow there but twice iu the past 3*2 yeais. Once more under headway wo were soon gliding through northern Flor i .a. We went into Jacksonville, exactly on time, at 8:50 a. m. A fast train was due to leave for Tam pa at U a. m. and we concluded to tike that instead of a slower train which left at 0:20 a. m. So we were in Jacksonville just 10 minutes. Our train w*as due at lampa at 4:00 p. in., the slower tiaiu at 7:50 p. m. We went io cn time, making the 250 miles in 7 hours. Ami the entire distance from i iu* cinnati to Tampa in exactly 32 hours. We thought this was going some, as the distance is over a thou* sand miles. We put up at the De 5iolo hotel in Tampa and for some days we proceeded to take in the sights about that flour ishiug city, wuiuu uujkih oi oa.uuu uinamianiH, most of w hom are Cubans and Span, iards with a goody smatteritg of cit izens of Afiican extraction. All Ihe Cubans, black and white, talk Spanish. The Cubans are all cigar makers; 288,000,000 cigars were made in Tampa last year. Mile or two out in Tampa Bay a large steamer, the Congo, rnay he seen rid ing at anchor, for she in interned till the European war is over. On New Year’s day the town was decorated with flags and hunting, the bands played and the people pa raded the streets. All the different orders were out. The school chil. dren were out in their best bio and tucker; the white children forming a good part of the parade and the blacks, led by a colored band, brought up the rear. Alter tho pa rade we all betook ourselves out to the fair ground where we spent the afternoon watching foot racing by a lot of young Cubans, automobile, motorcycle and borne racing. An the vendors of soft drinks made the welkin ring with their cries of “ice cold lemonade, 5 a glass—5 a gla-s,” and others came around with buckets filled with red-colored bot tles packed in crushed ice and yelled in pigeon English, “Herd's jour hind.red wine, better than a gold mine, 6 a bottle, only f i-v-u cent* a bottle,” we had to stick pins in our selves to arouse ns to a realization of the fact that we were celebrating New Year’s day, and not an old fashioned Fourth of July back at home. After seeing the wonders about Tampa we concluded to hie our ■elves to Ozotift, a small town about 22 miles west of Ttmpa on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. This is one of the finest orange and grape fruit sections in Florida and is a most delightful place. We can sit on the front porch of our hotel and 1 flip pebbles into the gulf. It would be simply folly for me to attempt | to give any idea of the. Tine fishing we have here. We simply go out in motor boats and catch hundreds j of excellent fish weighing from 2 to . 25 pounds. The last time we were (out three of ns using 2 hooks each j brought in a boat load of grupers, j Haunts and topics. We got io about 0 o’clock, p. in., after ti-hing about 5 hours .and unloaded our catch on ! public dock. We sent word for all who wanted tish to come and help themselves, which many did. We took all our hotel could use for several days, and the next morning we dumped over 150 pounds back into the gulf to rot or be eaten by lishes, shirks and other cruitures of the briny deep. It was a shame to waste such good tislil A few days since a party ot eight went out and fished all day and after returning to town they took all the lish they wanted and turned the remainder over to the boatman, who sold to the tish dealers at Tarpon Springs 2U00 pounds at 2o a pound.
