Ship On Fire Sunday
Night At Indian Rocks
Mysterious Craft Ablaze, Running at
Full Speed, Obserred at Indian
Indian Rocks. Jan. 9. Guests at
Indian Rocks Inn, which Is right on
the beach, were startled, as they sat
about a roaring fire In the dining
room, between 9 and 10 o'clock Sun
day night, by loud and prolonged
blasts of a whistle from a ship out in
the Gulf. Going to the window. Al
bert Laycock called to the rest of the
folks to come outdoors and see a ship
on fire. As he shouted the alarm, he
declares the vessel seemed to be a
sheet of flame from bow to stern. The
craft appeared to be about a mile off
shore. By the time Mr. and Mrs.
Laycock and Mrs. Hamlin had found
a pair of binoculars, the vessel, which
was making fast speed to the north,
was still burning, but the crew must
have gotten the fire somewhat under
control, and there were only occasion
al bursts of flame from along the deck.
The spectators could plainly see with
the glasses that the ship was on fire.
There could be no doubt about that.
The mysterious vessel was making
good time- and those who saw it sup
posed it was trying to make port as
speedily as possible. The whistle was
kept going all the time. This was evl
Mr. and Mrs. Bateman drove there
early Monday morning, but nothing
whatever could be learned.. One the

suffering from an oil Are, but there
has been no report of any disaster of
the sort. The tacts are as stated,
the vessel was plainly on fire, and she
was blowing what sounded like a
Bteam whistle in short blasts, and this
continued for many minutes- till this
mysterious craft disappeared toward
Clearwater. This can be fully proven
by folks who could not imagine any
such thing, and know just what they
saw. The whistle was heard by doz
ens, many en the main land thinking
it the noise of a Seaboard train try
ing to scare cattle from the track.
The strong northwest wind brought
the sounds very plainly to the beach .

wonderful results they have derived
from the use of Tanlac the universal
ly talked of medicine. R. W. Beale, a
well-known manufacturer, who oper
ates a cereal plant at Paris, Tenn.,
and a kaolin mine at Iuka, Miss-, re
siding at 957 Lamar street. Memphis,
Tenn.., came out a short time ago with
one of the most remarkable state
ments ever published in connection
with a medicine.
"I had practically lost the entire use
of my limbs from my knees down as a i
result of a severe spell of typhoid-
pneumonia, and this Tanlac ahs put
me on my feet again as active as 1
ever was," said Mr. Beale.
"From December 4, 1915, until Feb
ruary 2, 1916. I was confined to my
bed with this fever and even after T
was able to be out of bed, I suffered
so that I couldn't get any rest men
tally or physically. My limbs pained
me terribly and I couldn't walk. It
seemed that no kind of medicine
would help me to regain my strength
and I had about decided that ! was
to be an invalid for life.
"The only way that I can toll you
just what my great relief has been is
to say that since taking Tanlac, I can
go any where I want to, Instead of
sitting helpless in a chair; my appe
tite and digestion is excellent; I have
no more discomfort at all and have
gained ten pounds in weight';"

fans have taken the defefat of their
little Idol, ijmmy Wilde, by Pal
Moore, the American sailor, very much
to heart. A number of London papers
after long and minute analysis of the
Albert Hall match, vigorously assert
that the judges were at fault in giv

Wilde himself admits that he won.
"It's over and done with," says he.
"but I'm certain I won. I did win.
From first to last I never had the
slightest doubt that I was beating
Moore, and when they said I'd lost, 1

struck dumb. When I got to my
