Bonifay. Feb. 1. That the aged Mrs
F. R. Chaneey, who was found dead
ncrr her home recently, was murdered
for money, and that the parties secured
at least $2,000, has become known as
the result of the coroner's jury inves
tigation, which has been in progress
for the past week. The two women
arrested, both of whom are alleged to
1 of ill repute, have been released
by the jury, there bein? no' evidence
to connect them with the affair, while
the general belief is that the husband,
who is also in jail, is equally inno

Daytona, Feb. 1. Mrs. Robert Goe

Newport, who came to Florida last
week following the commencement ot
her divorce action in Rhode Island, is
living a secluded life here, and, it is
said, is devoting practically ' all of her

This explains her determination to ob

and America. It is said that of them
all she loved but one but he was
poor. Goelet had $35,000,000. He loved
her almost to the point of madness. He
was the "catch of the season" of
many seasons, in fact. Her mother was
anxious for the match. The girl final

not come from her heart. Her great

Though Goelet's love' for tria wife
has apparently remained as it .was
when he married her, their life to

studio fitted up with the money that

accepted the gift.
From that time on things went from
bad to worse. Mrs. Goelet then be

she believes she can not give the froest

she has obtained her freedom. The
Rhode Island court will dispose of her
case in March.

"CATAPULT" TO BE BUILT.
Landing on the battleships is not so
necessary because the flying boats can
alight in the water near the dread
noughts and be lifted to the decks
with ease, but there musi be some
means of rising from the decks of the
men of war. A new experiment will be
tried at Pesnacola a catapult", as the
men of the avy xvili. caK it, w ill ba
built on the deck of the Mississippi
with which to shoot the fiyir.g ma
chines off into the air. The hydro
planes cannot rise "frtfm the water at
sea because there it is too rough, a
speed of fifty miles an hour being nec
essary for a ris. and this tpeed can
not be attained on the high seas. If
the "'catapuit" proves a success on the
Mississippi they will be installed on
all oi the new dreadnoughts. Tht
"catapult" on the vessel will be similar
to the runways on the beach -which
