A GOOD TOWN
Where it la. What it Has, and
What it Needs.
A SPLENDID SCHOOL TOWN
schools, Churches, Factories,
Public Buildings and Oth-
er Good Thingd.
Gainesville is splendid town -beauti-
ful towns-all comers and goers admit it.
It is centrally located, i. e., it is situated
about the center of the Stite, and is,
without doubt, one of the b-est inland
towns in the State. Her handsome
. churches and excellent educatitoral i.sti-
tutions are the pr;de of our people, wheth-
er especially religiously or editcationally
Inclined or not. The Adventist-, BIap-
tusts, Catholics, Episcopalians, Metbo-
dists and Presbyterians, all have nice
: houmte of worship, and while the attend-
ance uy an Chtlatian worship in cities and
towns is hardly ever what it should be,
"the attendance at Gainesville churches
Swill compare favorably with church at-
tendance in any other city or town in ltei
S t8*te, and cer-iinly no other tovia is bet.
ter upliplied v..th pastors. The East
:Flo' da Seminaty buildings are not as
good as they should be, but the excellency
of the school, tile ability and earnestness
O f the faculty, is truly remarkable The
iuinesville public school building is per-
haps the finest in the State. The attend-
ance is always large, and the faculty is
the best to be had. There is at all times
a splendid private school here, aind those
who prefer to send sJ.all children toa pri-
Svate school can always be accon)mmodated.
Gainesville's waterworks system and
fire department can not be excelled by
any other in the State. We have one
electr'e light and one gas plant, and an-
other electric, plant nearing completion.
.Our telephone system is good, andl tlhe
number of subscribers increasing. The
largest cotton ginning establistilntiil it
the 8*ate, two carriage factories, seser.'l
small machine and blacksmith s1l ps,a
b'aket and crate factory, a la.ge coffin
and planing plant nearing coimplihti.in
a chemical andi oil plant in operation. aiil
other enterprises being commtell)mpl.tLtl.
We have three livery, feed and sale
as ibles, several good hotels a 1il h1, ir.liig
houses, two ice plants, two Ianllk-. I'tlr
newspapers, three railroads. (ine f the
finest court houses in the St tIe. a gC,;lcl
tabernacle with the largest betulng ca-
pacity of any building of its kinil int tihe
State, a good opera house, and ail im-
mense and beautiful auditorimri iln "ir
great public school buillinig.
No town in tile State is better ofl'cere.l
than is Gainesville. \\e have several
large drygoods, hardware, fIrnitite, gro.
cery and other businesses, anl wK 1\I t'
NO LIQUOR SALOONS. No better truck
farmingland in the State than asurromind
ing Gainesville, and lands are cheap.
We have here a unitedd States lalnd
office, and the building of a (overiimient
building is assured. Begininig oil Dle-
cember ist next, we will have free imail
delivery in the city, and we already have
a welt arranged and well ptanaged post-
Fishing and hunting grounds alljacent
to Gainesville pre such as but few cities
c in boast of, and who can doubt that
these things-and many unmentioned adl-
vantage--makes Gainesville a very des;-
rablecity? Visitors and prospectors fall
in love wth Gainesville.
Come and spend a while with as. Vis-
it our beautiful National Odd Fellows
Sanitarium, which we hid almost forgot-
ten to mention.
Our contract with the Argo Portrait
Company, of Chicago, will end January
sat next. All customers holding tickets
for 515 la trade, and 53.50 for a frame,
will call and select frames between now
and January Ist, as everything will be
swttd by that time, and all frames not
sold will be returned to the company.
This Is to give all our customers ample
time to get pictures and select frames, so
there will be no dissatisfaction.

feet Novomber 98 and that at Taun-

The cutdown is attributed to the
unsettled state of trade, resulting,
from the high price of raw materlsl,
and to a pronounced hesitation to buy
on the part of the usual purchasers.
The action taken Ib Fall River is ot
widespread Importance, since a step
of this nature In that city usually Ib
followed by mill owners In southern
and central Massachusetts, Rhode Is-
land and eastern Connecticut, where
a total of about 50,000 men are 6m-
ployed. It Is thought that no general
'strike will be ordered at this kime by
the Textile WorKers' Union, which is
arranging to consider the situation.
It was learned.that the reduction
was decided upon at a conference ot
Fall River men in Boston November
2. About eighty mills, owned by forty
corporations, aeo'represenijed In- the
organisation. Most of the local mills
make print cloths and coarser goods.
although a few of them are engaged
in the manufacture of'fine goods, The
mills of Fall River, New Bedford,
Rhode Island and those at numerous
points in central and western Massa-
chusatts, together with mills in east-
era 0onhecticut, made a general ad-
vanc In wages early i1 1908. The
cotton mills of northern fNew bagland
did hot Increase their scale and It Is
not considered probable that the pros-
ent change In southern New England
will affect the Industry further torin.

A PRESIDENTIAL JOKE.
"Panama Jack Rabbit Jumped Too

All Washington Is talking about a
little conversation that occurred Wed-

"Mr. President, my only business is
to pay my respects. In tile jlnguadg
of 'Br'er Rabbit.' just to past the time

Bald the president: "I am always
glad to see you, but I am especially
delighted to see you today, and speait-
ing of 'Br'er Rabbit,' reminds me that
Br'er Jack Rabbit on the lathmus
Jumped one time too many for his
Mr. Adamson replied: "I guess that
when he Jumped he was disappointed
that he did not run against a bowl-g.

The joke amused the president very

of his callers during the remainder of

The pusillanimots efforts of the
Gainesville Star agftlamt Davis and
Taliaferro must be very amusing to
those gentlemen.-DeLand Weekly
Now Chris, act honorable-for
once in your life-and tell' us
whence came your knowledge of
our "efforts against Davis." And
why; oh, why; should .the un-
usually brave (?), honest (1) tnd
infallible (?) Codridgton pay atten-
tion to the "pusillanlubnis efforts of
the GAINWeVItIt STAR, anyway?
The Gainesville Star, which cir-
culatem the false sensational "ed-
torials" given utterance by the De-
Land. Record, takes the News to
taik because it defends DeLand and.
her people from the unjust attacks
of the Record. It s aes to us that
so long as the murd ot that Geor-
'gie boy in. the- Alaebhua icotuty
convict camps goes unpunished, the
Star could profitably ponfine its.
heavy editorials to hqme matters.
But, then, perhaps '%pays Editor
Godwin better to di5 occasionally
into Volusia county dtters. It
has been intimated, iith past- that
Mr. Godwin was fbrnuabed the
funds with which ti atart his sheet
by DeLnd and Philadelphia par-
ties--it certainly appears from his
fool harpings that iach was the
case -DeLand News.
You are mistaken, sir; the STAR
does not knowingly circulate false.
utteraties rnor does it. take any ble
to task for defending home and
people. The STAR has shown that
it iU for defending home and home
people as far as it can honestly do
so, by its defense of the Alachua
county grand jurors, county com-
missioners and other officials who
have bean assailed by others al-
uoat s unfair as the editor of the
Delaand News. The paragraph
last quoted above we consider
equivalent tg an assertion that a
Georgia boy was murdered in an
Alachua county convict camp. Do
you know what you virtually as.
sert to be the truth? No; you do
not; you are simply circulating
false Utterances yourself-the very
Thing you accuse the STAR of do-
You should not stand on your
head and paw the nir because the
STAR discusses matters outside of
the town in which it is published
If the circulation of the DeLand
News is confined to the city of De
Land it is well enough for its edi-
tor to talk only in the city, but the
STAR'S circulation extends.beyond
our city limits.
As far as what is said, Intimated
Sand insinuated in the concluding
sentence of the above quotation is
concerned, we have only to say
that intimations and insinuationzi
t are hard to answer, and with intel-
ligent people call for no reply, but
had the editor of the News been
brave enough to have said what lie
evidently wants the public to be-
lieve, the one word "false," would
have been the answer.
ANSWER THE QUBSTION.
Persons coming to Florida should
remember that Gainesville is the
exact center of the world.-Gaines-
Yes, and remember too, that
Alachua in which Gainesville is
situated, is the county whose of-
ficials euact laws-the State law
doesn't say so--to make it a penalty
to carry a little old harmless iron
tap in the Iocket and sepd youthful
boys to the phosphate mine, there
to be beaten to death by a heartless
man, as was done with the youthful
Brake boy. Yes, remember Gaines-
ville in Alachua county, please.--
SMadison New uEnterprise.
Brother Smith; hadDbhe trouble
of which you speak originated and
come on to be investigated in your
county, and two bodies of eighteen
each, of sworn grand jurors of your
county had investigated the matter
in a most thorough manner and
failed to find a true..bill, and then
asomewoman in Georgia had writ-
ten a letter for the press virtually
charging the thirty-six grand ju-
rors with perjury, would you have
believed the unknown woman's
statement to the exclusion of the
unanimous finding of thirty-six of
your own eitUjens who were sworn
to honestly cgqnuct the investiga-
tion and a trrY ending report, or
would you think the thirty-six citi-
zens of your county wqre as much
entitled to belief as the tne woman
who was a stranger? If you.believe
all that the woman says true,
and that all Alachua county grand
jurors are perjurers, you should
take something for your liver.

CAUSE OF PAILURB.
What caused the failure of those
Georgia negro colonists who went
to Liberia? An answer to the
question may be found in an inter-
view with one of them by a New
York reporter, says the Savannah
Morning News. "What did you
do when you got to Liberia?" was
asked one of the ex-colonists.
"Didn't do uothin' boss; wasn't
nothing' for usto do." "Well, how
did you kill time?" "Just setting'
'round." That probably explains
it. The emigrants imagined that
it would be unnecessary for them to
work in the new country; that
they would be provided with homes
and food and have nothing to
do but eat and sleep. When
they discovered that this was not
so, and when nobody offered them
jobs at good wages, they spent the
time setting round" until they got
an opportunity to return to Amer.
ica. If the Turner-Graves scheme
of deportation were adopted, West
Africa would be fill of American
negroes setting round" waiting to
be brought to the United States.
The Live Oak Democrat has the
following paragraph in its issue of
Ool. Ira J. Carter reports twenty-
seven quail fell victims to his deadly
aim out of twenty-eight shots fired
yesterday. The Colonel says he
will do even better than this on his
And yet, says the Florida Index,
the State game laws say only
tweUty-liS of these birds may be
killed in one day.
