WHAT- CAME OF A FLIRTATION Bjr E, BARTLET THORPE Copyright. 1910, by American Prssa Association. Jack Meudenball and myself were midshipmen together In the navy. One day while our ship was lying at anchor In Japanese waters Jack and I got per mission to go ashore together. wa sauntered along one of the streets till we came to the outskirts, where the bouses were farther apart and their surroundings more ample, Passing a garden Inclosed by a low wall, we saw a couple of pretty Japa- nese girls picking flowers. Jack took out bis handkerchief the method Id those days of flirting; I don't know how they do It now and waved it. We were not more tbau a dozen yards from the girls, one of whom, peeing a couple of European youngsters In unl- form, tossed a rose over the wall. It fell at Jack's feet. He picked It up. Inhaled Its odor, kissed It and put it in the buttonhole of his jacket. Both girls laughed, and the other girl threw another rose, which I pick' ed up. Inhaled, kissed and put in my own buttonholes. Then, like good boys, we walked on. We didn't care to ap pear too presuming, and we didn't wish to frighten the little birds by rushing matters. But we didn't walk very far.. We soon turned and went back toward the place where we had seen the glrta. We argued that if they wished for our further acquaintance they would remain where they were, expecting our return. We found them in exactly the same place, but as we drew near they turn ed their backs upon us. Jack gave a loud "Ahem!" One of the girls turned and smiled. I gave another "Abeml" and the other girl turned also. This was enough for Jack, who needed only a moiety of encouragement, and be vaulted the wall. 1 followed him. It was making an acquaintance under difficulties, we not speaking the Japa nese language and they not knowing a word of English. Jack, whose bold ness naturally gave him the Initiative, pointed to the flowers growing ubout us und by a well enacted pantomime Indicated that we would like some of them. The girls understood, plucked a lot for each of us, then by pantomime asked us to Inspect the grounds. Of course we got separated. Jack go ing with ber who bad thrown him the rose, I with ber companion, who bad favored me. Why they took the lib erty of receiving us so unceremonious ly 1 didn't know. Tbey were surely of the samunil class and must bave been of weultby and respectable par ents, for the place In which they lived was a large one and tbelr kimonos were made of the finest texture. 1 was inclined to think that papa and mamma were not at borne. At any rate, we spent a couple of hours with them, chatting all the while In the un spoken language of love which young people don't need to study. Before parting with tbem we exhibited suffi cient Ingenuity to Inform tbem that we would call again as soon as we could get another leave. It was two days after this that we were ordered to report In the captain's cabin. We found there a couple of Japanese men of the higher class and a third who was an Interpreter. The men looked as solemn as owls. "Young gentlemen," said the cap tain, "since you were the only officers ashore on leave the day before yes terday I think that a message brought by these persons must be for you. Besides, I recognize these gewgaws as belonging to you." He held up a scarfpin that I had given one of the girls and a ring Jack had given the other. Jack and 1 were durafouuded. The captain motioned the Interpreter to speak. He told us that each of us having given a pres ent to a young girl a gift In Japan being considered a proposition of mar riage tbelr fathers had come aboard to Bay that two noble Japanese fami lies would feel honored at an alliance with so great a nation as the United States by giving a daughter to each of the young officers who had asked for her band. The matter was far too serious to warrant any expression of amusement The captain saw at once that we bad got Into a flirtation and unwittingly proposed marriage. Not wishing to give offense, be took the matter Into bis own bands, much to the relief of us youngsters who bad got into the scrape. "Tell the gentlemen." he said to the Interpreter, "that, representing the United States. I am highly honored that the propositions of my officers should be accepted, but that since the offer was made without permission I shall be obliged to lay the matter be fore the president. I sail for America tomorrow, will discover his excellen cy's wishes. If possible obtain his per mission and act accordingly." The Interpreter translated the cap tain's speech, and the Japanese gentle men signified acquiescence and after leaving their addresses, with all nec essary Information, departed. "Gentlemen." said the captain when our would be fnthers-ln-lnw bad gone, "you may consider yourselves under arrest. To suffer any of my officers to put a slight upon the Japanese people might cost me my commission. We sailed the next day. and on reaching American waters the captain wrote to Japan that, while the presi dent felt highly honored that two no ble Japanese families had accepted the proposition of two of his young naval officers. In the American navy mar riage was discouraged and permission i-onld not lie granted. d or q aoses -odd win cure any caw of Chills and Fever.

According to the Jacksonville Me tropolis the complete unofficial returns from every county In Florida show the United States senatorial contest to be the closest in the history of Florida with Broward baving a plurality over Talis fcrro of 49 votes. The total vote of the state for Senator on the 10th inst. was 46.843. divided among tne tnrcc candidates as follows: Broward 21,065; Taliaferro 21,016, and L'Engle 4,672. The last county to be heard from was Madison, the vote of which showed that Broward had a plurality of 26, thus giv ing him a lead in 28 counties, while 1 aliaterro has a lead in 18 counties. Citrus county gave a Dluralitv to l. cngie. Both tides are hopeful of a victory In the second primary, which will be held on June 7th, and both forces are hard at work to bring out a big vote. Senator Taliaferro began his second campaign in Duval county last night speaking at the foot of Main street. Frank Clark the eloquent Congressman has espoused the cause of the Senator and spoke with him at this meetinir. In his announcement to the voters pub usnca in tne limes-union senator Tal iaferro says that "false reports and col umnies were circulated about me by my opponents while I was in Washington at my post of duty in the interests of the slate, and I had little chance to defend them. My purpose now is to undeceive the people. lhis is taken to mean that the Senator Is going to do some real lighting ot most any kind in the cam paign now on. Broward is in South Florida this week and is making his campaign on the sue cess of the Everglades project and free agricultural schools for every county In norma, ne is in Manatee county, which gave Taliaferro a big plurality last Tuesday week. 1 aliaterro forces bave (he best organi zation, as Broward's headquarters have out tew at work, but the latter Is depend ing on friends in various counties. There will be much work done on both sides and the general opinion is that the contest will be exciting and spectacular. Rev. W. C. Foster Resigns. Rev. W. C. Foster for the oast year pastor ot tne Baptist church in this city has tendered his resignation, the same to take effect on August first. Mr. Foster is an able preacher and gave gen eral satisfaction to the church. He is most genial gctleman and his popularity is not confined to the membership of his own church, but extends to all de nominations. It is understood that his resignation is due to insufficient support. Mr. foster and family moved to Dav- tona Beach last Monday at which place he has secured a lease of the Hotel Van Valzah, which he will conduct. He will return to Palatka each Sunday and nil the pulpit of the Baptist church un til August. It is not thought that Mr. Foster de signs to quit the work of the ministry permanently. Assessor Billiard Appreciates. To the voters of Putnam county: While 1 had no opposition (and didn 1 want any) I ain just as appreciative, and thank you for the vote gave me on 10th of May. (i. F. BULLARI). From Mr. Middleton. To the Democratic voters of Putnam Co: I wish to express my gratitude to you for your hearty support in the recent primary election and assure you of my appreciation of the splendid vote you gave me on May 10th. I thank you for this manifestation of your confidence and I shall endeavor at all times to give my best efforts to the interests of our county and be true to my public trust. Very sincerely yours, W. S. MIDDI.KTON. Pomona, Florida, May 17th, 1910. This Cemetery Needs Attention. The neglected condition of Oak Hill cemetery, situated some three miles out on the Francis road, has been the cause of frequent comment of the kind not at all flattering to the trustees having it in charge. The cemetery is fenced, but not properly so, for the hogs roaming that neighborhood get through and arc oing great damage. In connection with these complaints the News has received the following communication from a lot owner that should result in a change of policy on the part of the cemetery trustees: Palatka May 18. 1910. Editor Pai.atka Nkws: The "City of the Dead" should be the "City Beautiful," because it is God's Own Acre." Yet one can icarcely find a more neglected looking spot that Oak Hill Cemetery. There is no water within a radius of half a mile it is needless to plant shrubs and flowers; but worst of all, the hogs roam at large and on Sunday last the writer counted no less than six graves almost demolished beyond the semblance ot a mound. Surely something can be done to stop this outrage, for unless it is stopped many graves will be destroyed beyond recognition as but few have stones to mark the last resting place of some loved one. M. A. W. Chamberlain's Liniment. This is a new preparation and a good one. It is especially valuable as a cure for chronic and muscular rheumatism, and for the relief from pain which it affords in acute inflammatory rheuma tism. Those who have used it have invariably spot en of it in the highest terms of praise. Lame back, lame shoulder and stiff neck are dne to rheu matism of the muscles, usually brought on by exposure to cold or damp, and are quickly cured by applying this liniment freely and massaging the af fected pxrt8. Soreness of the muscles, whether induced by violent exercise or injury, is allayed by this liniment. For sail by Ackeruian-Stewart Drug Co.

Mr. Otey is an expert and though he has driven bis cars over sev era! thousand miles of Honda s sand roads and through the woods he has never had the slightest accident. It was the pleasant experience of the editor oi the News to ride with him in a big Kambler touring car to Urandin one dav recently. This distance of some 24 miles, much of the way over the worsi possible roads, was made in one houi and forty minutes. People who have taken a long distance ride in a Kambler touring car will not soon forget the pleasures of such an experience. Married at Peniel. Miss Jessie E.

Courtland Middleton of Shell Bluff, .pent Sunday in town. The home of C. H. Worcester has re cently been beautified with a new coat jf paint. Urges Mr. Perry's Nomination. To the Voters of District No. 5. Gentlemen: The people of Grandln, ittribute the insufficient aggregate vole oast for Mr. Emery Perry at the recent primary, to the fact that the people of jther localities do not know him as we Jo. He is a man not given to the prac tice of blowing his own horn, or in isking others to officiate in that capaci ty. At the request of bis friends at this place, I gladly take the initiative in ex plaining to you why he is the man to serve us. Every one who knows Mr. Perry will agree with me that be possesses the necessary characteristics for one acting in the capacity of County Commissioner. He is a conservative man, possessing no eccentricities whatever, sufficiently educated in the good old reliable schools of experience and observation to make him a valuable member of the board. Of his character, it is without a blem ish. A good christian at heart, strictly honest in all business transactions and even his conversation on all subjects Is open and straightforward. is it not best to select a man of excel lent principle, one who is a christian him self, thereby bound to exercise consci entiously his share in the work as guar dian of public interests? And he cer tainly is strong enough physically and mentally to defy any and all factions. Mr. ferry was born and raised in the community where he now dwells. He is a farmer and knows what farmers need. And gentlemen, what class of people constitute the majority in this district? You answer, farmers, of course. rhere are others however of different and variable interests to be represented, but Mr. ferry, l assure you will repre sent all impartially and conscientiously it elected. When a man shows by the life he has led, the faultless integrity he has shown n stubbornly making the farm remun erate his useful toil, one who has been engaged in but one occupation not in fluenced by filthily ambitions, I think that man, whoever he may be, is worthy of the full confidence of the populace. Few men can succeed as well in this as Mr. Perry. 1 he office of county commissioner requires intellect, integrity, principle, self-reliance and a knowledge of what the people need, and he, we know pos sesses these qualifications. Hoping this will meet the approval of the voters, and expressing my belief in the fact that all voters should know in what manner a candidate's immediate friends and neighbors regard him. I re spectfully submit these facts for your consideration. Grandin Citizen. Grandin, May 18th, 1910. St. James' Methodist Church, H. DUT1LL, PASTOR.

Cunning the Twentieth Century King of Conjurors occupied the stage at How ell Theater on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights, each night showing his wonders to a large audience. In addition to his stage performances Cunning has a way of advertising him self that tells. He had himself locked inside the vault of the clerk's office at the Court House and came out of It in seven minutes. He was manacled and bound and locked with chains wrapped around his arms, feet and body and yet got out. He defied all locks and bars. These things done la public won hint t crowds at the theater, anxious to see more. And they taw more. The man is a wonder. His feats are done in a blaze of light and arc Incom prehensible. With him is Mile. Edmunds, the psychic wonder, who was but little Uss incomprehensible than Cunning himself. The people of Palatka enjoyed the Wit Ui sut of mystery.
