HERO We rather feel inclined to allow the hero's crown to rest undisturbed on the brow of that husband, who. find' ing It was impossible to release his wife from where her foot was held by a railroad frog, threw his arms about her and died with her. It was. possibly, not the wise thing to do. Two little children were de prived of their natural protector, and an aged mother of her support. It was an unnecessary sacrifice, an economic mistake. But love does not calculate. It does not weigh consequences. In a great emergency. It does not consider the pros and ctms of this alternative or that. If its duality is untainted, It acts upon impulse and the im pulse, though perhaps mistaken, la rone the less divine. :: Any man with a streak of yellow would have stepped aside when he had done all that a. man could do. It took courage supreme, devotion most rare- to face that on-rushing train, bringing swift and Inevitable death. William Tanner, hero, we salute you! Your life was not wilfully wast edyour death was not in vain. The . world needs now and then such a les son of love, and loyalty, and sacrifice, as that exemplified by your deed. Sueh an act throws its light afar. Il luminating the sordid sullenness of a. world darkened by the shadow-of Eelf. and brings to humanity's heart the prompting towards truer, tender er, nobler things! The world is thoughtless, and cold; but we do not believe the mother and children of the man who made the supreme sacrifice for the one he loved best of all will be permitted to suffer because of that sacrifice. X With some folks Sunday is Slhday. With the cocks every day is Fry day. J A hen doesn't believe in laying all jokes aside. Ethel: "Why don't you stop drink ing tea and talk to me?" George: "U comes after T, dear." - Willy: "Was there a diner on that train?'' Johnny: "No. there was no Dinah, but Lizzie came in." Henry Ford is a home man and not a runabout. And Tom Edison is always light hearted. While Taft carries great weight - politics. , Jack: "I'm going to try 'and mar ry a girl named Olive." Jim: "Why?" Jack: "Well, you can stuff an Olive so easily." Lest you forget the way to make yourself better satisfied with your self, conditions, the government your neighbor's success, and the world generally, is to "work arid save." ,We note that a million and a half eggs seized from a Tampa concern have been "released." Wonder if they were confined by poultry nttting, and If they went to scratching when released? What little comment is made on the candidacy of a certain gentleman as piring to Congress is sufficient to make him Wilder every hour. And. worse, still. Is the absence of com ment, indicating an unwillingness to take his candidacy seriously. Raincoats seldom weajrout but um brellas' go to rack in no" time. THE LOVER'S CALENDAR , He met her In January, saw her frequently in February, kissed her for the first time in March, courted her fervently in April, proposed to her in May; she accepted him in June; they were married in July. Bpent .August on their honeymoon, quarrelled in September, had a knock-down fight in October, separated in November and were divorcd in December. We had an argument 'bout the sea, Bet a dollar on the side; I bent couldn't come and go 'Cause the darned old thing was tide.

Catts, Jr. the position of military instructor at the University of Florida, but he was in stead placed in the less arduous but more lucrative office of adjutant gen eral. The governor, however, has an other son to whom he might give the office of instructor at the University. It Is true he was or is in the navy, but man-of-war's men are always prettv well up in evolutions and the manu- ual of arms, and the gov. should not lose any chance of keeping money in the family.

For instance a sentence. "Mamma loves baby,'' is said to have been changed to "Baby loves mamma." which of course is worth the $60,000 the change costs except for the fact that the new statement is untrue. Babies know nothing of love and cling to the nurse or foster parent for a year or two instinctively. Jacksonville Times-Union.
