' While the Germans write let the
Allies fight, Perhaps after a little
more of what has been handed them
the past few weeks they will be able
to express themselves without so
much equivocation.
Our Governor proclaims this as
clean-up week, and it has been sug
gested that a good start might be
made by cleaning the mouth of a
certain official up Tallahassee way.
There is a saying regarding lan
guage being the means whereby to
conceal thought. That seems to be
the kind of language used in the lat
est German note. It is camouflage
which does not permit a very clear
perception of the real purpose behind
it.
In some married men's homes this
past Sunday It was just as gasless
as all others. .
Walking down the main steeet In
Jacksonville Sunday night reminded
one of that saying, "like a chicken
with Its head cut off." Yes, the quar
antine was still on at the camp.

Florida oranges sold at $15 a box
In New York tbe other day. Of course,
It is not expected that such a price
as that will ever prevail normally,
but it is encouraging to be able to
point to such a record when the ha

"notbin In growing oranges!"

The flu is subsiding in the North,
where it originated, and seems now to
have reached its peak point in the ex
treme South, towards which it has
been moving. . Even as far south as
Jacksonville improvement is noted. Ia
Tampa it seems to have reached its
worst stage, over a thousand new
cases being reported. Jor the 24 hours
prior to this morning. ' In Lakeland
It is said there have been about 600
cases. Of all these there is none nt
thlB time in which the patient's con
dition is considered critical. There
have been but two deaths from the
disease one a child, the other a col
ored man. It is hoped that the worst
bt over bere, and that a marked re
duction of the number of cases will
soon be noted. It Is the duty of every
person to aid in bringing about thai,
end by endeavoring to prevent the
spread of the ailment.

Sometimes we think the skies are
never so fair, the flowers never bo
beautiful or the songs of the birds
so sweet as when we are called upon
to stand at the grave-side of a friend
tor whom the glory of the earth has
passed forever. We know that an
other glory, infinitely more wonder
ful, has opened to the rekindled
senses of that friend, and that all
we hold fair and beautiful is com
monplace to that awakened vision.
Still, human love is strong; and
faith, though enduring, falters in the
face of separation and hope deferred.
So while all Nature smiles, for a mo
ment we see only the sodden brown
of upturned earth, and hear above the
madrigal of the lark the whisper of
inexorable grief:
i
"Ye banks and braes of bonnle Doon !
How can ye bloom sa fresh and
fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds
And I sae weary, full. of care!"
There was a creditable showing of
goats at the recent State fair at Des
Moines, Iowa, the first ever made at
that fair, or any other in the Mid
dle West, says the State Marketing
Bureau. The goats attracted much
attention.
"They were trim in appearance,
clean looking and dainty, and really
one can think of no good reason why
they should not become an accepted
institution in the Middle West dairy
affairs."
The Northwest has see the pace In
the live stock and dairy industries,
and now it is thought that the goat
can be made a useful addition to it.
The improved goat is most com
mon in the warm countries, except in
our Southern States. They abound
for milk purposes, and for meat' and
hides, in the Central American states.
South America and in the West In
dies.. , ;' ,,. ,
We import millions of dollars'
worth of goat 'hides every year from
India, by a long haul from ths other
lde of the earth. The hide of the
goat as compared with that of the
sheep is to compare gold with silver.
The mohair of the Angora gcat is
worth more than wool, the prices
running as high as $10 a pound for
the extreme length of the fibre.
The goat thrives in Florida. It Is
a consumer of roughage beyond that
of any other animal. It looks as if
the goat ought to be worth some con
sideration from the farmers of Flor
ida, in view of its success in other
States and countries. There is one
ranch in California where the milk
from several thousand goats is being
condensed and canned. The Angora
goat Is a profitable and popular one
in Texas and the states of the Pacific
coast. A magazine is published in
Portland, Oregon, devoted to the An
gora goat.
The last Texas State Fair had a
milk goat dairy exhibit.
In Memoriarn Donald D. Ansley
Li U
(By a Friend)
In April, 1917, it was remarked, in
the course of a speech in Congrtss.
that "the cost of war may not be paid
in gold; it must be paid in blood.
Human life is the legal tender of war
and the interest thereon must be paid
in widows' weeds; the weeping of
women andthe wailings of children
bereft."
. It was considered, at the time, a-s
only a figure of speech; but as the
weary months have gone by and the
happy homes of Florida have been
turned into houses, of mourning, the
words have seemed prophetic.
This has been brought home to us
when we laid aside the usual "cares
which infest the day," to follow to the
last resting place the mortal body of
Donald Duncan Ansley.
He was born in Stanford, Kentucky,
March 8th, 1892, and made the su
preme sacrifice at Pelham Bay Nava'
Station, New York, Oct. 15, 1918.
He was the youngest child of his
widowed mother, Mrs. M. J. Ansley,
of Lakeland, -and leaves, in addition
to his mother, two sisters, Mrs. J. S.
Jewett of Lakeland, and Miss Mar
garet Ansley, who is now engaged in
Y. W. C. A. work in New York. Also
three brothers: Messrs. F. H. Ansley.
of Birmingham, Ala., and C. T. arid
B. D. Ansley, of Tampa, Fla.
From the beginning of the war he
was anxious to serve, and after , nu
merous attempts to enter the serv
ice, was finally admited to the Navy
.on March 4th, 1918. After successful
ly passing his examinations he wa?
transferred to Pelham Bay Naval Sta
tion. Oct. 1, 1918, for training as an
officer in the Navy. Three short weeks
ago he was with us. in peaceful, sun
ny Lakeland, beloved of all who knew
him, as a boy of promise; but in his
breast was surging the hot blood of
American manhood and he yearned
for a MAN'S chance. He knew the
price he might pay and was willing
to pay it. And now he is dead!
Dead? Oh, no! He has just begun
to live! As long as time shall last
there will be women's tears and
men's proud smiles in memory of th?
boy, a high type of American man
hood, who went forth from the home
of his adoption, with an eager smile
, on his lips, saying, "I am a man. take
me. Give me a man's chance;" and
of the man who made the supreme
sacrifice and came home on his shielrf.
with the flag of his country draped
tenderly about him. He went fort't
as a boy; he came back as a MAN.
He went forth as a mortal body; he
returned a spiritual body. The whit:
star had turned to gold, to shine---eternal
In the heavens.
When the six American sailors low
ered the flag-draped body into the
ground; when the firing squad had
performed Its duty; when the bugler
had sounded "taps," Donald Ansley's
was the "soul on highest mission
sent."
"With a cheery smile and a wave of
the hand,
He has passed into an unknown land.
And left us wondering how very fair
It needs must be, since he linger?,
there." i .

The following from the Fort
Wayne (Ind) News will be of partic
ular Interest to the many Lakeland
friends of Mr. G. W. Pixley:
Every Boy Scout in good standing
who has not yet secured a subscrip
tion from George W. Pixley at the Trl-
State Loan & Trust company must
report at once to L. O. Wetzel at
scout headquarters and secure a
written order which will entitle him
to a $50 subscription, if presented: to
Mr. Pixley by Saturday, noon. . c
Mr. Wetzel states that a "large
number of the boys have not yet re
ported to him to get their written1
orders. It was Intended to hold a'
, i
number of meetings tonight to fex-1
plain the plan to the boys who have ;
not already responded, but the clos
ing orders prevents this, and .; the :
newspapers and mouth-to-mouth re
ports must be depended upon to
reach each of the scouts.
The plan is simply this: Any Boy
Scout in good standing, who applies
to Scout Executive Wetzel for a writ
ten order, has the right to go to Mr.
Pixley ftnd receive a subscription for
a $60 liberty bond. The story of how
this plan came into being is a simple
one, based upon the gentlemanly
conduct of a certain scout. Several
days ago, this scout aproached Mr.
Pixley and asked him to purchase a
bond, which he glady did. T.he scout
was so gentlemanly and showed so
much appreciation that Mr. Pixley
conceived the idea of purchasing a
bond from each . Boy Scout in Fort
Wayne over 600 in all. Consequent
ly, he placed the proposition before
the executive board of the company
and the members unanimously
agreed to it. If all of the boys in
good standing appear under these
terras, the amount of these combined
subscriptions will be over $30,000
certainly a splendid echo of a simple
act of gentlemanliness and courtesy
on the part of a boy. Mr. Pixley i8
a great lover of boys and an admirer ;
