For Annual Convention of the Turpentine Operators' Association
To All Turpentine Operators, Factors and Others Interested in the Industry:
The Sixth Annual Convention of the Turpentine Opera-
tors' Association will be held in the Board of Trade Auditorium,
Jacksonville, Florida, Tuesday and Wednesday, September 11th
and 12th 1906. A large attendance is urged as matters of interest
will be discussed and acted upon. Reduced rates will be granted
on railroads and a complete program will be announced in due time.
J. A. HOLLOMON,
A. D. COVINGTON,
Merchants of Jacksonville
Following our usual custom, we will issue a specially attractive number of
THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD on Thursday, September 6th-one week before
the annual meeting of the Turpentine Operators' Association, which is to be
held in Jacksonville September 11th and 12th.
The gathering of the naval stores men in Jacksonville each year is an im-
portant factor in the business circles of the city, as a large proportion of the
operators take advantage of this visit to make extensive fall purchases.
The special edition of the INDUSTRIAL RECORD will be in the hands of practi-
cally every operator in the territory before he comes to Jacksonville. It will also
be liberally distributed at the meeting of the Association. Containing, as it will,
the official program, and articles and comments on matters to be discussed, it
will be carefully read by every man interested in the turpentine business.
This special number offers a splendid medium to the merchants of Jackson-
ville (wholesale and retail) for getting in touch with the naval stores men. It will
pay you to put your announcement in this issue. The cost, compared with at-
tendant results, is small. If you wish space, please phone us and we will have
our representative call and arrange with you for same.

A. H. S. Cook, one of Thomasville's
prominent attorneys, brings the story from
Miccosukie, where he spent several days
last week. While there be took dinner
at the home of Dr. Yarborough, a promi-
nent citizen of that section.
Dr. Yarborough says that for several
days the negroes of that section had been
spending $10 and $20 gold pieces in the
town, and an investigation was started.
It was then learned that during a negro
baseball game, one of the negroes hap-
pened to strike the ground hard with his
bat. When he did so the bat -ame in
contact with a hard substance which, upon
investigation, proved to be a pot.
A negro is always on the lookout for
hidden treasure, so the pot was dug up,
and in it was found the shining gold.
It is not known who got the money, but
the stosy goes among the negroes that
there was about $6,000 in all. This story
is thought to be a little more than was
found, but that gold was found there
seems to be no doubt.
The gold was discovered on the place
of Mrs. S E .Miller, who is a resident of
Thomasville. Her home is on Remington
TRUCKING SEASON AT HAND.
A Well Informed Man Say Season Will
Be Best in History of County.
This is the season of the year, says the
Miami Metropolis, when truckers and
growers are putting in their seed
beds and. preparing for the planting of
the fall crop of pepper, tomato and other
winter crops, and throughout the farming
sections of the county activity is reported.
A commission dealer well informed on
the conditions in the county and capable
of making a prediction, stated this morn-
ing that he expects next season's crops in
Dade county to be better than ever be-
fore. "The fall tomato acreage will not
be increased very materially over that of
last season," he said, "but the spring crop,
which is always the best, will have a con-
siderable increase, though it will not be to
such an extent that the crop cannot be
worked, and given the proper attention,
and it will not be so heavy that the mar-
ket will be glutted.
President Brown, of the State Fair As-
sociation, has announced the different di-
v'sions in which the various counties will
line up in the coming State Fair, carrying
out his excellent plan for dividing the
State into four parts in order that all
counties may be on an absolutely equal
The division of the counties is as fol-
West Florida-Escatnbia, Santa Rosa,
Walton, Holmes, Washington, Chlhouni
Liberty, Franklin, Gadsden, Wakulla, Leon,
Jefferson, Madison, Taylor, Hamilton, Su-
wannee, Lafayette, Columbia and Baker.
Middle Florida-Nassau, Duval, Clay,
Bradford, Alachua, Putman, Levy, Marion,
Lake, Sumter and Citrus.
East Florida-St .Johns, Volusia, Bre-
vard, St. Lucie, Lake and Monroe.
South Florida--ee, DeSoto, Manatee,
Polk, Hernando, Pasco, Hillsborough and
Florida, owing to its vast expanse, has
more diversified products than any State
in the Union. Therefore, to put all coun-
ties on an equal footing, this division is
regarded as absolutely necessary. A large
premium will be given to the banner coun-
ty of each division, and then these ban-
ner counties will compete for the grand
prize. This will cause competition to be
all the keener and more strenuous.
Following the division of the counties,
the campaign to get all represented by
exhibits will b ene more strenuous than
heretofore. It is hoped and intended to
have represented at the next fair a greater
number of counties than were ever rep-
resented at any State Fair in the country.
"The people have learned better than
that. There is more money in small crops
for two reasons, one because the proper
attention can be given the plants and the
other because the market will not be
over supplied, as would be the case were
the acreage to be excessive. Small crops
and good fruit mean a ready sale and
good prices; a big crop means an inferior
fruit and poor prices.
"Nearly every grower who was in the
field last season will plant again this sea-
son. They have profited by experience
and will make the best of the knowledge.
On that account I expect and believe the
vegetable crop in Dade county next winter
will bring better results than ever before.
The present rains will interfere with the
planting of low grounds. but the high
ground i' unaffected and planting will soon
be under way."
Bradentown is happy at last in the
prospect of securing railroad connection.

ed that the ears will be running into Bra-

SKwKIROG FPM ALCOHOL IN CANADA.
Toronto, Aug. 2.-To the discussion
which i going on in Carnda just now
looking to the removal of the tax on im-
ported alcohol, Dr. Wallace P. Oohoe, pro-
fessor of chemistry, MeMaster University,
has prepared a valuable paper in which
he points out that "free" alcohol for in-
dustrial purposes would be a boon to many
Canadian industries. As industrial alco-
hol is rendered undrinkable by special
treatment, he says the extended use of
such a substance need not interfere with
existing regulations with regard to spirits
intended for human consumption.
Prof. Cohoe then details at some length
the uses to which denatured alcohol may
be put, including making finish varnishes,
lacquers, stains, paints, enamels, etc., coap
manufacture, hat making, celluloid, xyl-
onite, ether, chloroform, iodoform, fulmi-
nation of smokeless powder and other ex-
plosives, preparation of solid medicinal ex-
tracts, medicaments, fine chemicals, dis-
solving dyes and colors, making photo-
graphic plates, making linoleum, lotions,
liniments, inandescent lmp flinmlnts,
piano making, manufacturing anolyne and
other dyes, silk and embroidery manufac-
S turer, fireworks, plant washes, insecti-
eides, cleaning paint, manufacture of rub-
ber, manufacture of steel plans, making
blacking and leather dressings, silvering
mirrors, corset making, making sheep dips,
preparing surgical dressings, oil refining,
electrotyping, making inks, engraving, oil
gas generators and various other miscel-
Broadly speaking, he says, alcohol is
used as a solvent or medium, a a reagent
or raw material from which other prod-
ucts are made, and for purposes of heat,
Eight and power.
In conclusion, Prof. Cohoe refers to the
United States bill whied recently passed
tnrougn congress removing me inlanu tax having not rail anu water facilites. The

while over 24 million dollars' worth were

but steady growth in the importations of
uncut diamonds, while cut diamonds have
shown a greater fluctuation than those not
(lt. The total value of uncut diamonds
imported in 1900 was a little less than 4
million dollars, in 1902 a little more than
6 millions, in 1903 nearly 11 millions, and
since that period has continued at about
this figure, while cut diamonds, which in
1900 were a little less than 8 million dol-
lars, were over 15 millions in 1903 and 24
millions in 1906.
This importation of diamonds in the
uncut state is a development of recent
years. The census reports gave the num-
ber of wage-earners engaged in lapidary
work in the United States in 1800 at only
ninety-two and in 1900 at 498, and the
value of the products in 1800 at $315,004
and in 1900 at $6,786,281. Prior to 1886
the value of diamonds imported in the
uncut state was less than I million dollars
annually. In 1897 it passed the million-
dollar line and has gradually increased
until, as above indicated, it has ranged
about 10 million dollars a year during the
last three or four years.
Practically all the diamonds imported
into the United States, while the product
of the African mines, are imported direct
from European countries. Of the 101/ mil-
lion dollars' worth of uncut diamonds im-
ported in 1906, nearly 7 millions came from
the United Kingdom and about 2 millions
from Belgium, while of the 24% million
dollars' worth of cut diamonds imported
that year, 10 million dollars' worth were
from the Netherlands, the great diamond-
cutting country of the world, 5 million
dollars' worth from France, 4% million
dollars worth from Belgium and 41/, mil-
lion dollars' worth from the United King-

During the past week the Record has
received reports from various sections of
the Sea Island Cotton Belt in reference to
the effect which the heavy and constant
rains have been having on the crop.
All of these reports are unfavorable.
From every county in this State where
Sea Island cotton is grown the reports are
that the cotton crop has been cut down
at least one third and in some of the
counties the reports are to the effect that
the cotton crop is to be reduced to the
extent of forty per cent.
In Alachua county the conditions are
very bad. The farmers there say that
the rains have already next to ruined the
cotton crop and that if they are to con-
tinue for any length of time there will be
but little cotton grown in that section.
About Alachua, one of the best Sea Isl-
and cotton producing sections in the coun-
try, the reports are that at least thirty-
five per cent of the crop has gone and
the remainder will not be ot good quality.
There have been a number of visitors to

and their places filled with that class of
labor which could never be a success in
manufacturing naval stores.
There may be recommendations from the
legislative committee at this coming con-
vention looking to more stringent va-
grancy laws. In fact it has been stated on
gool authority that this question will be
prominently mentioned at this convention.
Mr. H. C. Brown, of Live Oak, a banker of
that city, was here Tuesday and claimed
that the crop of cotton in Suwannee coun-
ty had been reduced thirty-five per cent
at least, and that the end was not in sight.
Mr. Brown considers the situation a ser-
ious one, the only silver lining to the
cloud being that the prices for cotton may
range higher on account of the cutting
down of the supply. ...
The cotton growers' association looks
upon conditions as bad and claim that the
prices for this grade of cotton ought to
be much higher this year than they were

V. P. Harmeling Working to bring Immi- Question of Freight Congestion is a Live
grants to Florida.
Topic for the Board of Trade.
Mr. V. P. Harmeling is to show the peo-
ple what he can do in the matter of in-
ducing immigration to this State.
Mr. Harmeling is a native of Bristol, Va.,
but has been a resident of Florida for the
past four years. He first settled at Madi-
son, a progressive city of West Florida,
the county seat of the county which bears
its name. After reading the papers and
other literature of the advantages of the
various sections of the State, which are
quite diversified, be decided that Alachun
county was one of the most fortunate
counties in Florida as far as soil was con-
eerned. Gainesville having been selected
as the site for the University of Florida
was another inducement, and taking all
things together, he decided to come here
and make it his home.
Mr. Harmeling is by trade a milliner.
He decided to come to Gainesville and es-
tablish a large wholesale millinery busi-
aess, and with this idea in view, realizing
at the same time that Gainesville was a
good town, did not take into consideration
the fact that business houses were scarce
here, and arrived in the city with the in-
tention of renting a place and opening up
immediately; but he found a scarcity of
desirable buildings here which was alarm-
ing, with the result that he advertised his
line, which was placed in a small building,
-at cost, and sold out the same at actual
cost to the public.
But Mr. Harmeling was not despondent.
OCALA WANTS HEW RAILROAD.
SEfert Being Made to get the Gaine-
vie and Gulf TMer.
There is a strong effort being made by
the people of Ocala to get the officials of
the Gainesville and Gulf railroad to in-
clude that city in routing the road to Tam-
pa. It has been known for some time that
there was a scheme on foot to have this
road extended from Fairfield to Tampa
and the ogffidls have been doing some of
the preliminary work looking to the con-
sumation of that plan.
There was recently a meeting of the pro-
gressive business men of Ocala, and one of
the results of that meeting was the ap-
pearance in Gainesville the other day of a
committee of the business men of Oaala
to petition the directors of the Gainesville
and Gulf railroad to build the extension of
the road so as it will pass by Ocala.
At that meeting the directors informed
the committee that they would give to the
city of Ocala a most careful consideration
but that it was too early to give them any
There is hardly a probability that the
road will touch Ocala if indeed, it is to be
extended to Tampa. If the owners of the
Gainesville and Gulf railroad build to Tam-
pa it will be for the purpose of getting a
short line and better connections north.
To go by Ocala would be to go some out
of the way and it is hardly probable that
the owners of this road would make this
sacrifice, even to get the business that a
city like Ocala could give.
Sews are Safe
Pensaeola, Fla., August &-Captain J.
H. Miller, of the dredge Vicksburg, today
received a telegram announcing that the
In fact he realized that Gainesville and
Alachua county was all right, because of
the fact that everybody seemed satisfied
and happy. The truckers, as had been evi-
denced by their shipments and returns,
were living well and he felt that everything
was progressive in this section.
Mr. Harmling did not desire to leave this
state and as a result decided to remain in
Gainesville. He has recently been meeting
with considerable success in the realestate
business. He proposes now, instead of
confining himself to this territory, to list
property in all parts of the state. He has
arranged with a number of papers in the
North to advertise Florida generally and
Alachua county in particular. His efforts
are to be directed in the main to inducing
thrifty and desirable foreigners to come to
this state and to this section. He will
argue with them that they can do no better
than to come to Alachua county, buy a
small tract of land and engage in the grow-
ing of fruits and vegetables.
Mr.Harmeling is particularly interested
in the Swedes and states that they are
the best class of settlers who can be
brought to this State. He understands
the ways of the Swede and has been not-
ing with a great degree or satisfaction
how they have been making a success in
the western part of this county. It is
the confident opinion of the people of this
city that the efforts of this gentleman are
to meet with success.

the men who were on board the scows
whne they went adrift last Monday while
in tow of the tug Wilmot, are on board
and are sound and well. Nothing has been
heard of the Wilmot, which went out in
search of scows, and it is probable that
she is still roaming the Gulf in search of
her lost tow. As soon as she returns the
scows and the Vicksburg, which is here,
will be towed to Tampa.
BELL EXCHANGE AT MICANOPY.
One Will Be Established at That Point in
Next Pew Weeks.
Gainesville, Fla., Aug. 8.-Thomas Blair,
a member of the constructing department
of the Southern Bell Telephone and Tele-
graph Company, has returned from a visit
to Micanopy, where he has been for the
past three or four days. He accompanied
Mr. Crews, another construction attache
of the Southern Bell, and between the two
it has been said that a right-of-way has
been secured, the line will be constructed,
and within a short time Micanoy will have
a Southern Bell telephone exchange.
It is further learned that the people of
Micanopy are in hearty accord with this
new movement, and that forty-two subscri-
bers have already signed the list. An
estimate has been submitted and will be
accepted, and in a short time the progres-
sive citizens of Micanopy will be in touch
with the outside world through the Sou-
thern Bell System.
The principal business to be taken up
this week by the board of trade, which
assembles for its regular meeting, will be
the relieving of the present freight con-
gestion, and it is hoped by the members
of the organization that a prompt and
efficient remedy can be determined upon
at that meeting.
The special committee, of which Major
J. S. Fairhead is chairman, hopes to be
able to make its complete report at that
tune and to suggest a remedy. Major
Fairhead will submit his report in writing,
in order that all data he has collected and
the suggestions made by the committee
may be in shape for ready reference.
The sub-committee, which has in charge
the work of preparing and sending out its
interrogatories to the railroad officials,
the shippers, the mill men, etc., may be
able to present its report at that time. It
is understood that there will be little or
no difficulty experienced in getting answers
to the questions from the leading compa-
nies concerned. The names of all concerns
declining to give the information desired
will be given to the board of trade.
Attention has been called to the fact
that Jacksonville is not the only city which
is suffering, at present, from a freight
Conditions almost the duplicate of those
prevailing here, differing only in degree and
the character of the freight held up, are
said to prevail at nearly all of the far
southern Atlantic ports. Savannah is
undertaking, through its chamber of com-
merce, work similar to that now being done
by the board of trade, and other cities
are seeking to relieve the local conditions
prevailing with them.
It is the rapid development of the south-
ern ports that has caused the congestion,
coupled with the fact that facilities have
not grown as rapidly as has the business.
Blame is also attached to the system of
shipment in vogue here, many admitting
that while that was entirely satisfactory
when the business was smaller, that the
present amount of freight rushing con-
stantly into this port means that the old
system must be abandoned and a new
One reason why the board of trade hopes
that a method of relieving the congestion
quickly may be found without delay, is
that in this matter time is all important.
It has been pointed out that the pres-
ent congestion, due almost entirely to the
class is wholly to blame. It will probably
be found that every one has some little
share of responsibility for the congestke .
"This can only be solved by hearty and
willing cooperation. It may be necessary
for the railroads to make some changes
in their plans. The shippers may have
to make concessions aad put themselves
to some little inconvenience to aid in the
relief. The mill mea may have to revise
their present system in some respects.
Ai must get together for the general good.
"Unless a remedy is found and applied,
Jacksonville is certain to suffer. The
freight must be gotten out ad to its des-
tination, and unless the present congestion
is ended, next year shipments will be di-
verted from Jacksonville to other ports.
This would injure the city, and to avoid
this result, we must all get together and
help, for the general good of the city for
whose advancement all are striving."
Another member of the committee called
attention to the fact that the facilities
should have been ready at this time, as it
has been known for years that the future
of Jacksonville was practically without
The chief thing in its advancement is
believed to have been the securing of
deeper water. It is pointed out that the
board of trade has been working for a
twenty-four foot chamel, at mean low
water, for more than ten years, and the
yearly reports that have been made by the
United States engineers have shown that
this was steadily nearing completion.
This fact, it is argued, shuts of any ex-
cuse as to the suddiis -of the develop-
ments, and that all should have been pre-
The key to the whole trouble will prob-
ably be given through the data that the
suo-committee is colletng.
If the trouble is found to be with the
present system of sending in portions of
orders, storing them on the wharves, and
leaving them there or in the ears until the
order is completed, then a change will have
to be made in the system. A number of
the committee hold that this is the real
trouble, but admit that it will be difficult
to fnd a new system that will meet the
conditions that the mill men have to

PROBABLE COST OF FREE ALCOHOL.
Opinions vary widely as to the cost of
making denatured alcohoL Probably no
definite data can be had on this subject
until the industry is fairly established and
actual results obtained and costs deter-
mined. But it now seems likely that, as
far as cost goes, there is sure to be dis-
appointment. The popular idea that free
denatured alcohol can be made by anyone
at a cost of a few cents a gallon is not to
be realized-at least not for some time.
The estimates of cost are now increasing
as the approach to the actual working of
the law comes nearer. Dr. H. W. Wiley,
in his forthcoming pamphlet on the sub-
ject, is said to estimate it at 40 to 50
cents per gallon, which is very much
higher than the previous estimates we have
During the hearings before the congres-
sional committee, prior to the passage of
the bill, experts put the cost of denatured
alcohol all the way from 9e to 27c a gal-
lon. The prices varied according to lo-
cality. In New Orleans, where is made
from black Cuban molasses, it is said to
be possible to get a gallon of alcohol out
of two gallons of molasses, at a cost of
about ten cents a gallon. But where al-
cohol is made from grain the experts say
that it cannot be produced for less than
sixteen cents, and that in the majority
of cases it will cost much more. To this
must be added the expense of denaturing,
which is an important item. Counting the
cost of the denaturing element and the
labor of applying it, the total cost of the
alcohol to the manufacturer, when dena-
tured and ready for the market, can hardly
be less than 25 to 40 cents according to the
0 estimates of the experts, so that Dr. Wi-
ley's figures are not far out of the way,
apparently. If he refers to the wholesale
price to be charged for the alcohol to the
consumer, his estimate of 40 to 50 cents
per gallon is quite likely within bounds,
but it is not just what the public has been
led to expect from the operation of the
free alcohol law.

A POPULAR HOTEL.
Among the New York hotels patronized
by Southerners-and especially by Florid-
ians-noe is more popular than the New
Hotel Albert, at the corner of University
Place and llth street. There is a cor-
diality shown by Mr. Frenkel and his
corps of clerks that appeals to the South-
ern guest. This added to the many ad-
vantages of the hotel, accounts for itA
The New Hotel Albert is located in the
heart of the wholesale district, yet con-
venient to all department stores, thatres
and places of amusement; away from the
noise of Broadway, which insures absolute
quiet at night.
It is a moderate priced hotel with all
modern conveniences, steam heat, electric
light and telephones. The new annex con-
tains 150 up-to-date rooms, of which 76
are provided with private bath. Prices
range from one dollar per day upward for
single rooms, two dollars per day upward
for rooms with private bath. Parlor, bed-
room and bath from three and a half dol-
lars per day upward.
The restaurant and cafe are both cosy
and home-like. The material and cooking
are of the best, service prompt and liberal,
and prices very reasonable. There are
a series of Club Breakfasts, which afford
a choice selection at from thirty cents to
one dollar. The service a la carte compares
with Broadway houses, at much lower
Mr. Frenkel, the popular proprietor, has
always insisted upon the utmost .attention
and politeness being accorded to the guests
of the Albert by all its employees, and they
may rest assured that there will be no let-
up in his endeavors in this line.

MANY BUILDINGS IN WHICH WHITE
PRESSED BRICK IS USED.
One of the many new industries which
was added to Jacksonville during the past
year is the manufacture of sand-lime brick.
The Florida White Pressed Brick Com-
pany, with offices in the Dyal-Upchurch
Building, has been for the past six months
utilizing one of nature's resources in the
manufacture of sand-lime brick at their
factory, situated on the northern borders
For several months they manufactured
only brick for facing purposes, but owing
to the exceedingly great demand for com-
mon sand-lime brick they turned their
attention to the manufacture of this grade,
thus enabling one to procure a common
sand-lime brick of superior quality at a
price proportionally equal to the price
of the clay brick of today.
Since June 1st, the Florida White
Pressed Bric kCompany is dealing direct
with the customer, builder or contractor,
as the case may be, and are their own
selling agents and sole distributors of
their own make of brick. It i said that
these brick are soon to be distinguished
from other makes of sand-lime brick, in
that their registered trademark is im-
pressed on each and every brick. This
mark is a double X, and the brick of this
company will no doubt become widely
known as the -XX" brick.
Evidences of the push and energy of
this thriving company are seen today in
many parts of Jacksonville, where already
over a million of these brick have been
eagerly sought after and used in many
new buildings, some of which are nearing
completion, and many well under construc-

ers the price in the Northern and Easter
markets has not advanced in proportion to
the increase at the shipping point, which
naturally reduces the proet of the shipper
to a great extent.
Croastie man here, those who sped the
week in the woods, in an effort to pur-
chase ties, stated that never before had
they seen the condition as it is at preust.
At every tie camp, or anywhere that cut-
ters can be found, there are always three
or four buyers ready to bid on the tis.
The Florida railroad men have succeeded
in buying up thousands in this section sad
it is understood that they will be in the
field for at least a year or longer. The
buyers for the road keep in the woods
regular and are diverting many ti to
Florida points which should come through
But with all these conditions against
them the local shippers are not much be-
hind in orders and suaeed in getting very
near all the ties wanted, although their
buyers have to do some hustlbng.
The bad weather of the lst few weeks
hba been damaging to the cutters in the
woods s they have not ben able to work
on full time. The demand at present is
far greater than the supply, and it may
be that before long the price will advance
even as high as 00 cents, but such an
increase is not probable.

having been passed on Monday and the

One of the most substantial business
houses of Jacksonville is the Vehicle and
Harness Company which is located at the
corner of Cedar and Forsyth streets. This
concern has been doing business in Jack-
sonville for the past several years and has
the largest stock of vehicles, harness,
wheelwright, mill and naval .tores sup-
plies of that character of any firm in this
part of the South.
When those who established this busi-
ness decided to locate in Jacksonville one
of the largest business concerns of its
kind in the country, they saw the oppor-
tunity here for supplying the needs for
goods in this line of every character.
The promoters of this enterprise put in
a large stock of goods. One of their aims
v'as to reach out over this section of the
south and to carry in stock everything
that the naval stores operator, the sawmill
man, the farmer and the fruit grower
needed in the way of vehicles, from a lum-
ber cart, dray, etc., to the finest kind of
carriages and buggies.
Only a short time was required in giv-
ing the people of this section to under-
stand that in Jacksonville they could pur-
chase anything that they wanted in the
vehicle and harness line. Those who came
here to inspect the stock and to purchase
supplies .were not long in ascertaining
that the stock of the Vehicle and Harness
company has been selected with a view to
supplying everything that was needed.
To the naval stores operators this house
has been of great service. Those who had
charge of the business were familiar with
this character of the trade and were in
a position to supply anything wanted when
the order was by telegram or by letter.
Not. only was the location of the company
of great convenience, but the prices at
which wagons, harness or harness parts,
saddles, etc., were supplied were cheaper
than the same goods could be supplied else-
By judicious advertising, careful and
courteous business methods, combined with
a thorough knowledge of the trade has
made the Vehicle and Harness Company
one of the strongest and one of the best
established concerns in the State.
The manager of the company, Mr. W. F.
Stark. is one of the best business men of
this section of the South and his care and
diligencein the interest of the trade is hav-
ing a great deal to do with the success of

Means Much for the Business Interests of
The sueeess which is attending the ef-
forts of these, who under the corporate
name of the Florida Life Insurance Com-
pany, are working to keep thousands of
dollars at home which have been boing to
the northern insurance centers, ntaas
much for the business future of the city
of Jacksonville and the State of Florida.
When the men who organized the lor-
ida Life Insurance Company embarked in
this great enterprise they were confident
that it would require a great effort to win
marked success at the very start. Aa a
rule it requires time to bring to the ap-
proval of the public to the extent that
it means a business endorsement, financial
institutions of this character, but with
good business judgment and the highest
reputations as successful men, this Florida
Life Insurance Company has forged so
rapidly to the front, has been so highly
endorsed in a business way that its sue-
cess is now assured. A great many poli-
cies have been issued and they come from
all parts of the State of Florida and those
to whom they have been issued represent
all classes of business and professional
men, as well a those who are among the
laboring classes. The character of the
policies issued and the extent to which
they have been placed throughout the
State are indicative that the success of
the company has already been achieved
NEGRO SCHOOLS FULL WHILE COT-
TON IS COOKING WITH GRASS.
Columbia, & C., Aug. &-Many negro
schools in full blast in midsummer and
cotton in the grass is the condition in
South Carolina at present. "Surely would
all honest opponents of compulsory edu-
cation change their views," says a repre-
sentative of The State, "if they could, in
going over the State, witness the many
negro schools to be found now in operation
in the rural districts of all sections."
One instance is cited of two negro school
houses, each crowded to the limit, being
carefully instructed by competent teach-
ers ,who receive good salaries for instruct-
ing the negroes of these communities.
"In each of the sections in which these
schools are located hundreds of acres of
cotton are being choked out by the grass
for the lack of labor, which could not be
procured at any price, owing to the fact
that the labor of these communities was
shut up in the school houses, grasping ad-
vantages in midsummer which were neg-
lected by the white children even in mid-
"The truthfulness of the above could
not be doubted when it was learned from
personal inquiry that out of nine white
men living on one route, only four could
read 'plain reading.' When asked what
educational advantages 'they were giving
their children, one man out of the five
replied that he was doing no better for
his children than had been done for him.
The replies of the others would have been
more or less amusing but for the sad
thought of the future prospects of these
neglected and stunted offspring and the
final destiny of our much boasted Anglo-
BAD MEAT AND BREAD.
Washington, Aug. 7.-Secretary Bona-
parte has received a preliminary report
and that it is to take its place among the
great life insurance companies of the coun-
This could only have been achieved by
good business methods backed by refer-
ences which are A. L. This achievement
means much to this State and the work
o fthe company will be appreciated among
these who are interested in keeping Florida
money in Florida.
In referring to this company, the Flor-
ida Times-Union, in connection with an im-
portant piece of information referring to
the company, says:
"The Florida Life Insurance Company is
proving to be a great success and is re-
ceiving the support of the business men of
the State who realize that it is a home
company and will keep some of the thous-
ands of dollars paid out for life insurance
premiums at home.
"This company has already outgrown
its present quarters and on August lst
will move into their new offices in the
Realty Title and Trust Company building,
having leased the second floor for a term
"A special meeting of the stockholders
is called for on August 14th to amend the
by-laws in order to increase the board of
directors an immediately after the stock-
holders' meeting, a meeting of the directors
will be held to take up several important
concerning the supply of fresh meat and
bread at the Norfolk navy yard and sim-
ilar conditions to those existing in the
New York navy yard have been found.
The contractors have failed to furnish
these articles in as good condition as the
department demands. It is probable that
the contracts will be cancelled. The report
of bad meat supplies for both the New
York and Norfolk navy yards was made
by Capt. Littlefleld of the bureau of sup-
plies and accounts, who has investigated
the condition in both yards. No action has
yet been taken by Secretary Bonaparte
because the official reports containing all
the data have just arrived at the depart-
ment, and he has not yet had time to go
over them, but the verbal reports were
sufficient to convince him that drastic ac-
tion was necessary and unless the con-
tractors take immediate steps to reemdy
the conditions and furnish meat and
bread according to the terms of their con-
tracts these contracts are to be cancelled
and supplies secured elsewhere. The con-
ditions at both N..orfolk and New York
are said to be equally bad. It is pointed
out that the matter relates to fresh meat
only and supplied by the contractor locally,
and has nothing to do with meat conditions
elsewhere in the navy.
Wants Canal Dug.
Mr. LI E. Dozier went to Jacksonville
on Wednesday as the representative of the
Leesburg city council, his especial mission
being to arrange for the early digging of
the canals from lake Griffin and Lake
Harris into the center of the town. Nearly
all of the preliminaries for the digging
of the canals have about been arranged
and it is expected that the work will be
finished and boats will be coming up into
town early in the coming winter. Mr.
Dozier will probably spend several days
in Jacksonville before returning to Lees-

FLORIDA INDUSTRIAL BRIEFS.
Florida's possibilities continue to grow.
We now hear on all sides that so and so
made a fortune on tomatoes, another on
celery, and still another on lettuce, and so
on to the end of a very long chapter, in
which chapter figure conspicuously water-
melons, cantaloupes, potatoes, cabbage,
onions, phosphate, turpentine, lumber, fish,
sponge, and a lot of oth:r things. Florida
is rapidly being developed. Her possibil-
ities are great indeed.-Ocala Banner.
Arrangements are practically completed
by which Plant City is to have a fifty-
room hotel ,to cost about $0,000. Dr.
O. 8. Wright, who has ample capital, has
under consideration the building of the
hotel, provided a company can be otgas-
ized to lease and run the house.
Oil has at last struck Live Oak. A taak
car full of crude petroleum which was en
route in a Seaboard freight train burst in
the yards, and the deluge was a sight wit-
nessed by many people. The entire con-
tents of the tank, about 10,000 glloma,
were lost, and the railroad yards were
certainly oiled for oqe,
