them is -natural advantages we have,
and unless we get the Centennial that

that "he said Kiwanism meant cor

x , Yours truly,
co-operatlonj must ' be added some
thing else to De a sure enough Ki
wanian. I don't know if he means
something to drink or just a personal
ity. He didn't dissect that part of hia
statements. When he did say that
Harry Thompson and Miller's face
brightened right up, as they seemed
to have added something else before
the meeting. I didn't know there was
any more of it in' town.
He also said that at these Informal
dinners we - meet people who we as
sociate with and trade with, and know
them better. I always like to meet
people that' I associate with but it
would be better if they didn't have so
many in the club that I trade with.
I can read their minds, and they are
wondering where I get the spare kale
to pay for. my dinner, when they all
have me on their books for" a couple
of beans. A man's conscience is a
bad thing, and whenever I pick up a
pea on my knife that conscience says
thatf l have a bill ' to pay, but it is
funny how so many other of the fel
lows can go right through a whole
meal and a extra plate if it is handy,
and their conscience don't hurt one
bit. But I got off the track, so I am
going to go back to that speech the
Chieft made.
. Well he goes on to say that how
power has developed in this country
and in the world in fact. First we
had hand power, then horse power,
then water power, then steam power,
then electric power, and on top of ,all
this we got the power of right spirit.
I ain't mentioning any names, but I
know for a fact that them power of
Spirits was drunk" Up ' way" before he
made his speech. ' " 1
Well when we had about finished
with the chicken' part 'of the menus
Klwanian Betty from Montgomery, got
up and said he couldn't make a speech,
that Judge Parrish that was to come
and make a speech from Montgomery,
had passed the buck to him. He also
said that he didn't have much to- say,
except that he thought the Pensacola
crowd was full of life. ' I think he had
some of that power of " right spirits,
because he talked just like a real sure
enough brave. As I said before he
said he didn't have much to say, but
he talked about twenty minutes, . I
didn't mind It much though as I was
having trouble trying to get that ice
cream out of the bottom of . one, of
them high vases they hand you at the
S. Carlos.
Then that fellow Bradford of the
Journal gets up to make a talk. I
also think his speech was as good as
the one I made when Harvey Bayless
asked me to speak on" the Centennial.
He talked along different lines tho
from what the Big Chief did, as be
program a couple of places. I don't
see how that happened, as I wouldn't
said Miller had shoved him uo on the
let Miller shove me up on anything.
He went on to enumerate the things
that our club had done In Pensacola,
among them was the Cotton Compress,
and that road through Baldwin coun
ty to Mobile. He also added that In
as much as the Mobiles hadn't sent
over a delegation to bur meeting, he
thought we ought to do away with
that idea, and built something towards
Montgomery or Birmingham, where
we had some delegates from. I . don't
agree with him altogether, as they
ain't any use taking offense at Mf.
bile. I Just took it for granted that
Mobile didn't have as good a speaker
as me and him was and they was
ashamed to send some body. I always
consider the source and try to show
the right spirit.
Then Dillard . got up to make a
apology to Mr. J. N. Andrews, as they
had put his picture in the paper over
the name of Mr. Andrews. He got off
pretty well with it, but think" he
ought to apoligize to Mr. Andrews in
person. as he acknowledged it was a
insult to. the aforesaid.
Jeff Bailey from B'hamgot up then
to present the charter, but by the time
he got through talking I thought that
charter was going to wear out in his
hand. Jeff told a pretty good mule
story. He said as how a nigger, got
fired from the army with three hun
dred dollars in his pocket and when
the' Colonel asked him what he was
going to do with that -money, he, re
plied that he was going .home and
buy" two mules. One was going to be
named Sargent and the other Lieu
tenant and he was going to beat them
mules until they died. While Jeff
was showing some of the right spirits
on his face, I don't think he was
showing the right spirit in his heart,
when he tod such a inhuman story
to thenv' soft hearted Kiwanis. Jeff
went on tm say how we could make

a good club of ours if we paid the
Secretary one thousand per month for
cigarette money, and then he would
would have to get a new one, and no1
body wants the job. Jeff told a lots
attend to his duties. Otherwise we
of things tho that is going to gtve
us" the right spirits if we carry his
ideas out, and I want to thank him
personally for not touching "on thtt
motto in the Scriptures that rfaya'i-ay
your bills. He also added that when
he was here in 1903 we had. a oi l
depot here and lots. of choonenjf tut
it was Just vise-versa now. Jeff
should have .not said that, r.s l.e is
sorter stepping on our toes so to speak,
as we miss them schooners is much
as he does. He also went on to sy
that there was 21 thous. Kiwa:i'ans
In the IT. S. that any time we visited
them, they would welcome us and giv
us free lunches. I noticed that Harry
Thompson made special note of that
statement. " He said tljat a true Kl
wants don't live for himself alone.
When he said that I felt lots better,
as it seems I am llvln to Just make
money to pay out for bills for some
thing that I have already eat.
You should ought to have been on
the boat ride too, that was a "corker.
Everything was free and we had a
man there to hand you cigars and
bottled refreshments Just as . you
wanted thorn. I won't mention any
names, but I believe that there was
some of that right spirits aboard, as
others who already had the right
before long. Miller, Burke and" several
spirits wanted to know why the boat
had two tows They also saw two
Navy Yards, two Ft. Barrancases, and
two Santa Rosa islands. -Well I saw
Jim Watson and Dillard diving in to
them sandwiches and oft' drinks so
much' that-I decidd to - get a share
of what; J had - paid or promised to
pay my. good .. money, for, so I Just
helps myself to three 10c cigars, and
when I noticed Teebolt had four In
his pocket I went back and got an
other one. They ain't nothing like be
ing fair in this world, and thats what
I mean to do.
I don't know anything about the
dance, as I ain't been , yet, as' that is
to happen at the S. Carlos at 8 o'clock.
But I guess them fellows with the
right spirits will be there with bells
on, anyway I am glad this wont be
printed before I . eee them, as that
would mean disaster.
