They are usually quick to "catch on" to i hat, from their point of view, don't look like lair play for them, hut one glar ing inconsistency in their reas oning is that they canuot or win not see tlie "other lel low's" side, and play lair! The real question Is, will they play fair themselves? Do they really want fair play on both sides, or only what they consid er fair play for themselves!' Can they will thev elimi nate that supreme selfishness, the result of perverted business principles, and recognize the fact that their fellows have the same right to fair play as they can they will they play fair? We are inclined to interpret fair play from the standpoint of a supposed self-iuterest, and measure all according to the way it effects ourselves, If we are as willing to play fair as we are to ask for fair play, we will as.sure ily be as sincere in trying to see how a thing affects the other fellow, as well as in look ing at our own side of the mat ler. It is a sad thing to say, but experience, as well as observa tion, bear out the statement that I the average person really wants t'j gel the best of others iu a deal some special advantage for himself which others do not obtain, that he may profit to a greater extent than they. They want to get in where they will be assured of the largest profits, but at a greatly lessened cost. and throw the burden of risk aud expense on others. Ia short, when closely analyzed, their real motive is to come as near getting something far nothing as possible. But it is encouraging to know that all are not living this life of selfishuess and deception. There are many who love the true and the just and the honest. There are many who have learn ed that the right may be the best way that all that contri butes to the best and highest growth and development ot the individual is best attained--can only be attained through beintr honest, just and true to all. If we are untrue to ourselves. it necessarily follows that we must be untrue to others! That the people as a whole do not realizi these things, nor act from these higher motives, is self evidentiOtherwise we would not see the disgraceful spectacle of Wall Street and other world famous gambling resorts.

We don't know where it is published nor who is its editor, and the pages of the publication are woudrous. ly silent on these two important subjects. If you have received a copy you, of course, know what it is, but if you haven't we will tell you in a few words. lTnder the guise of a periodical for farmers it is the means by which some anM-uro h i b i t i o n gang somewhere puts their whis. key articles before the people of the countrv. Florida is at this time a good Held for the circula tion of the paper because next year the people of the Stale will vote on the miestion of State-wide prohibition, and the publishers of this homeless and tditorless sheet are snenrlincr money to "teach" the r.eonle of Florida along the lines which they advocate. It comes month ly by mail, postpaid, in a manila envelope. Watch jut for it and when you get a copy see if you can find in its pages the place of its publication and the name of its editor, and if you can please let us know.

It was a big undertaking for so gIDa1 a ,own to entertain so great a number ot people but that Live Oak ac complished the feat with glory to nerselt and pleasure to her guests is abundantly nroven bv the splendid testimony of the soiuiers themselves. Not bine was left undone that wou'd add the smallest mite of pleasure and comfort to the Johnnies and every man of them is praisiug the true Southern hospitality of wnictl tliey were the recii.ients during their visit to the city.
