PHARMACY IS A
Possibly, you are not aware
that the study of pharmacy
requires 4 years of college.
T'he Bachelor of Science de-
gree is a requirement for ii-
censure as a phamacist and,
in addition, the candidates for
license must pass the State
Board of Pharmacy examina-
tions. In 1960, the college re-
quirements will be raised from
4 to 5 years.
There is a shortage of phar-
masists in some states and
the colleges are seeking su-
perior students for the study
of this course leading to a
'useful and rewarding career.

Once you have the system in op.
eration, use it. Don't lay your ma-
terials around to be filed la:ber and
then lose them bfeore they get into
their proper slots.
If you've been considering an im-
provement cutting in your wood-
lands, hesitate no longer.
Early summer is one of the best
1,imes to ct, because fresh-cut
stumps are least likely to sprout
at this time. Besides, foliage can
help you make final decisions about
which trees should be taken out.
Such improvement cutting 'is
needed on many farms. A survey
by the U. S. Department of Agri-
culture showed that 54 per cent of
all commercial forest land in the
United States was in small, pri-
vate tracts, averaging 59 acres.
Only 40 per cent of the owners
of these small woodlands were cut-
ting their timber wisely, leaving the
forest to grow and to improve. One-
fourth were leaving cut-over land
with no timber values left, where
regrowth would be difficult or im-
possible. Better planning would
greatly increase profits from these
small holdings, and at the same
time yield important benefits in
protection of soil and water re-
sources. I feel sure that our Gulf
County average is better than this.
To allow room for young, well-
shaped trees to grow to their best
potential, it is important that you
weed ut overage and surplus trees.
This means regular removal of di-
seased and damaged trees, branch
and badly shaped trees, vines and
poorer species. Many of these cuts
can be made to pay for themselves
through the yield of firewood, pulp-
wood, fence posts, poles or even
Much improvement cuttings will
"pay off" eventually by adding to

Town Deserted By All
,After the final tragedy, real es-
tate values naturally collapsed.
The inhabitants could not meet
their financial obligations, and the
-banks were compelled to foreclose
the mortgages. But the mortgages
were practically worthless, since
real estate had depreciated so
much in value, with the result
that the struggling Union Bank
alone lost $150,000. The banks at-
tached all slaves belonging to the
unfortunates, as well as their land.
,Some of the inhabitants, seeing
complete poverty staring them in
the face, took their movable prop-
erty, including the colored people,
and attempted to escape to Texas,
which did not as yet belong to the

Rise and Fall
of Old St. Joseph
says: "St. Joseph with her arti-

has sunk into an everlasting com-
mercial sleep." Of course th3 rail-

immediately following, the rails
were removed to be used tj build

Apalachicolians Buy Houses
The dismantling of the town oc-
curred in 1843. The residents of
Apalachicola bought the deserted
houses, tore them down, shipped
them by water to their city and
erected them there. Issue after is-
sue of The Commercial' Advertiser
announces the arrival of vevsels
laden with building material from
the' dying town. The most inter-
esting item is found in the it-'ue
of August 12, 1843:
The schooner Phrenologist ar-
rived at our port from St. Joseph
except the cemetery was left of
the little city whose inhabitants
had so bravely and with such bold
enterprise defied nature and man
in unequal competition.
on Tuesday last, bringing part of
a large house, about to be erected
on the corner of Commerce and
Center streets by our enterprising
citizen, Capt. H. F. Simmons. This
building was formerly used as a
hotel if St. Joseph, in her palmy
days, but will soon be helping swell
the tide of prosperity for Apalachi-
cola. This bringing homes from St.
Joseph and erecting them here
seems to be the work of magic
Nobody knows when St. Joseph
became a real "Deserted Village,"
when only "yon widowed solitary
thing" was left, as "the sad histor-
ian of the pensive plain." It is cer-
tain that everything of value was
gradually removed. Even the chim-
neys were torn down during the
War for Southern Independence to
make vats for evaporating salt.
