Next we read:

And finally in chapter 8. verse 15:
And David reigned over all Israel;

such h.':d been the case the politics
c Florida wouldl have had to be re-
written, and Mr Baskin would no
doubt had a carc-,r in Florida not un-
like Senator Tiliman's in South Car-
olina. He had many of the same rug-
gpd characteristics.
Mr. Baskin was born in the town of
Perry. Houston county, Georgia, six-
ty-four years ago, and belonged to a
large and prominent family of that
county. He enlisted in the war at
the first call to arms and was a faith-
fil and zealous soldier. He came
to Florida not many years after the
reconstruction era and settled at An-
thony. He planted an orange grove
and brought it to maturity, but it was
wiped outit by the great freeze. He
was also a successful trucker and
was among the first to successfully
engage in lettuce planting. Besides
being n r-c1er and orange grower,
he wa'- a rood all-round farmer.
A ;'-xw v yrs b<-for(- his death he
pu:'c;':-ed a controlling interest in a
large -.id profitable grove near Lar-
'-uo. in 1Aslsherowgh county, and was

\vhen be wa- atacled with cancer

When told that his condition was
hopeless he showedd the same forti-
tude and courage that had marked his
career th-roughout life, and when the
summons came he illustrated the
martyrdom of Bryant's Thanatopsis:
"Wrapped the draperies of his
couch about him as one who lays
down to pleasant dreams."

We had a very pleasant visit Friday
morning from Mr. L. S. Brooks of

fine orange grove at Citra, and who
spends his winters there. Mr. Brooks
said that after the great freeze he
tried to resuscitate his big grove, but
found that battling against the white
fly was even a harder task then tak-
ing chances with the mercury. But,
he says, in recent years the brown
fungus has almost completely annihi-
lated the white fly, and the orange
growers around Citra and indeed all
over the state of Florida feel very
much encouraged and are going to

The theory for a long time prevail-
ed that th 3 railroads and newspapers
were th- great developers of our coun-
try. That they both belonged to go
hand %. hand '. -,ther, the primal ob-
ject of each being to make known the
character of country Arou4h which
the railroads traversed, thereby in-
ducing immigration, and building up
the waste places; substituting flowers
for thistles; converting miasmatic
morasses into lettuce and celery beds,
and almost impenetrable swamps and
forests into fruitful orchards.
That was the theory of our early
promoters and pioneers, and we have
only to look at the map of Florida-
Sthe map of any state in the Union-
the map of the United States as a
whole before and after the building
of our railroads and the establishment
of our newspapers, to show how mag-
nificently their efforts were crowned
with success.
The marvelous growth of the whole
country tells its own story. Its his-
tory, its developments, its revelations,

The railroads cheerfully gave the
newspapers transportation over their
lines in return for advertising space
and write-ups, the primal object of
both being the introduction of immi-
gration-the peopling of the country
with an industrious population through
which instrumentalities everybody
was to be benefited and either direct-
ly or indirectly everybody was ben-

to be built up: by the introduction of

The newspapers felt that they were
not the recipient of graft nor special
privileges in receiving the transporta-
tion. and in issuing it to them the
railroad companies had no intention
to bribe nor corrupt them-it was a
mutual exchange of courtesies for one
common and patriotic purpose-the
building up of communities and the
betterment of conditions.
The editor of this paper never in
his life accepted transportation over
any railroad that he did not feel that
he had given in return value received

railroad company, but all along the
section of country through which the
road traversed. He did not feel that
he was getting something for noth-

after the great freeze, when that sec-
tion had escaped the almost general
catastrophe. He was greatly impress-
ed with the possibilities of that sec-
tion and gave his Impressions through
the columns of the Ocala Banner.

Prom the letters he received from
the leading citizens of that section he
was made to feel that he had perform-
ed a meritorious service end that the
whole territory had been benefited by
his visit. He paid his hotel bills and
other frills and accessories, and all
he got in return was a little free
He also visited the Fort Myers sec-
tion. with the same object in view
and with the same result. He visited
the Miami section while the Dade
county fair was in full blast and was
such a revelation.
He was flattered with the voluntary
statements of many of its citizens
saying that the benefits they expected
to derive from the splendid things he
had said of the possibilities of that
section was worth more than the
price of an annual pass over its rail-
road till doomsday.
And so from time to time the edi-

sections of Florida, from the pineap-

a little off-hand talk he remembers to
have said that he verily believed that
if the said association had been form-
ed in the earlier stages of the repub-
lic the civil war would have been
averted, for it was largely brought on
by the newspapers. If, he said. these
moulders of public opinion could have
freely mingled with the people of all
sections of the country, that it would

and the southern editors, seeing with
their own eyes the powerful resources
of the north, would have hesitat-
ed the urging of a trial of strength

sparsely populated and wholly un-
prepared for such a gigantic combat.
These national press gatherings
were largely instrumental in unifying
and bridging over the "bloody chasm."
bringing about a restoration of good
feeling, and to this extent at least
were a national blessing.
It is impossible to measure the good
flowing from those gatherings in dol-
lars and cents.
The owners of the railroads, who
have millions invested in them, felt
that they were more than repaid in
the various write-ups for the trans-

Senator Bryan was in many ways
the foremost young man in Florida.
At the early age of thirty-one, when
his splendid career has been closed
in obedience to the divine will of
God, Mr Bryan had, by his example
and activities of a clean, vigorous,
brave and manly life, won the confi-
dence and respect of the people of
Florida and the devoted friendship
and admiration of those with whom
he was associated. He represented
with uncommon faithfulness and con-
spicuous ability the highest aims and
noblest traditions of the people of
Plorida. and in his untimely death.
this loyal and devoted people are bow-
ed in a great common grief.
Learned, ambitious, eloquent and
universally popular, Senator Bryan
was the idol of a large proportion of
the people of this state and his pro-
gress at the bar and in the councils
of the country was observed with feel-
'ngs of pride by all Floridians. Yet
deeper and stronger ties to the pub-
lic affection Mr. Bryan furnished in
his stainless and unblemished cherac-
ter in public and private life. His

The Tampa Times has studied the
English language to little purpose if
it has construed any utterance of the
Ocala Banner indicating that the con-
dition of politics in Kentucky is pleas-

tone and tendency of the utterances
of this paper have been to warn the
democrats of Florida against the

It is said by those who #new Am

an, who died at Providence hospital,
Washington, D. C., Sunday morning,
was possessed of the graces and
charms of manner, the accomplish-I
ments of the perfect orator and the
gifts of eloquence in a rare degree.
With it all he had clear and strong
convictions, and was courageous and
tactful in debate.
With this splendid equipment and
before reaching the full fruition of his
powers, he found himself occupying a
place in the greatest legislative and
deliberative assembly in the world,
thus giving to him an opportunity

The Key West Citizen Not a Poor Lit-
tle Blind Lamb
When the state of Florida paced In
its laws a provisit that the govern-
or of Florida con l not succeed him-
self, it did wisely. It was realized
that an unscrupulous governor might
perpetuate himself in office by using
his appointees and dependents as po-
litical henchmen. With the state's
money he is empowered to send men
into every county, and clothed with a
certain amount of power they can
wield a great influence over politicians

The' provision has pi)revven! 1 the
zovornor from singg the st'it;- enlploy-
-; for his re-election, but it has devel-
)opd in th-'. present campaign that he
is not prevented from uiing them to
elect his satellites to office.
Governor Broward is today in con-
tol of a big political machine, and is
using it with brazen effrontery to
control the election of his allies.
It is no longer a secret that the
state bank examiners, convict lease
inspectors, pure food inspectors, and
other traveling state officials are all
electioneering for the machine candi-
dates. (What a help it would have been
had the state gone into the insurance
business, with a corps of agents in
each county).
The candidates who are opposing
the friends of the governor are bad-
ly handicapped. The state treasury Is
at the back of the machine, and it
may be lax or vigilant in enforcing
the law.
And strange it is, the men who are
using and are being benefited by the
state machine are the howlers
against corporations, while robbing
the people of their right to select the
officials they are distracting attention

and follow him and that he would
make them fishers of men.
He had his text divided into five
separate headings, and forcefully, sub-
limely, and with great tenderness and
pathos, got all out of the various

"The cuckoo papers throughout the
country have been so busy abusing
the railways and applauding every
possible administrative and legisla-
tive act designed to embarrass and
render unprofitable their operation,
that they have entirely lost their sense
of propo lion.
"To them the exultant, triumphant
fact that a passenger rate has been
reduced to two cents a mile, which
means that one person out of a thous-
and or ten thousand is saved perhaps
fifty dollars a year, is of much greater
importance than the consequent loss
of employment to many thousands
who were formerly able to earn from
seven hundred to a thousand dollars
"The advertiser in these papers re-
alizes the difference when he finds
that the buying ability of the people
as a whole has been reduced; that
vast numbers of discharged railway
employes are economizing in their ex-
penditures and that the curtailment of
work is making inroads upon his sales
and forcing him to be more conserva-
tive in his advertising appropriation.
"The credit for the saving of the
fifty dollars to the one person in the

Mr. \V. Alexander Moorhead is a
candi(lale before the prirmiaries for re-

the world why he should not be re-

of reasons why he should be. He has
been fourteen years in th.e woodh car-

good-natutired, he never becomes co)n-
fused, never loses his bearings, and
rarely, if ever, makes a mistake. So
far he has been unable to marshal any
opposition against himself, and it is
because he is such a universal favor-

It costs something to run for office
in Marion county. The executive
committee down there fixed an as-
sessment of two hundred dollars for
clerks and like sums in proportion
for the other offices, including fifty
dollars for representative. As the

a year's salary can be assessed, we do

performed by Rev. J. P. Hilburn, prin-

the charming home, which were filled
with guests both from the immediate
vicinity, Tampa and points on the
west coast, had been most pleasingly
decorated for the occasion, and the
bride, who is one of the most popular
and attractive young ladies of Green

The staff corr'spi(ndent of The New
York Packer, under date of March 24.
writing from Dania. says:
Dania, the home of the tomato on
the east coast of Florida, is at the
present time in its glory of nature's
perfections. Here one sees not 5 or
10 acres in a field, but fields of toma-
toes miles and miles in extent, with
not a visible line to separate the
owner's possessions. In fact, the
country between the little city of Da-
nia and the seashore is one vast field
of tomatoes, a sea of green at a dis-
tance, but when walking through the
color is green, yellow and red-vine,
flower and fruit. The land upon
which this crop is grown !s a deep
muck. which holds water for months
without rain and produces a quality of
tomatoes second to none in the state.
While low muck lands in many places
in Florida are cold and subject to
frost damage at the least low temper-
ature thfs land is warm and the re-
cent cold wave had not the least ef-
fect on Dania tomatoes and other
The majority of the growers here
are members of the Dania Vegetable
Growers' UTnion, Crutcheld and Wool-

many are Independent packers and
shippers, selling f. o. b. or shipping
on consignment, and all are thorough-
ly interested and busy at this, the
starting point of the largest shipping
season in the history of Dania. Car-
lots have commenced to move and the
prospects were never better as to
quality and market indications.

Friday was circus day in Oeala.
and quite an air of excitement per.
vaded our streets during the day.
A large crowd was on the streets
to witness the parade at noon, and
quite a lot of people were in from the
country to attend the circus.
The Van Amberg shows wintered at
Valdosta, and the newspapers and peo-
ple of that city are very loud in their
praise of their conduct while there, so
much so that they are anxious for
them to winter there every season.
The Van Amberg is an old show
name and has been familiar for a
generation to circus goers. It is a
large circus, having three hundred
people on its pay rolls. It has three
bands and all kinds of animals.
It has, or did have, until it reached
Live Oak. the on!y mother and baby
elephant in th-is country. These ele-
phants were recently purchased from
the Hagenbach shows and while be-
ing loaded on the train at LLive Oak
the mother elephant, fearing that the
baby elephant would not be placed in
the car with her, became enraged.
rushed out of the car and caused great
consternation Seizing the baby ele-
phant she made for the woods, and
beat back her pursuers. She is a
large, powerful, African elephant, and
of course is creating all sorts of ex-
citement among the farmers of Su-
wannee county.
Those people who attended the per-
formance of the Van Amberg circus
say that it is a first class show in all
particulars, and the men connected
with it are polite and courteous.
This paper desires to return its
thanks to Mr. W. A. Rhodes, press
agent, for many courtesies extended
to us.

Prize Essay by IDA LEWIS FL

On May 13, 1607, the ships "Susan
Constant," "Godspeed," and "Discov-
ery," bearing the colonists sent out
by the London Company came up to
the peninsula, which is now James-
town island, made fast to the trees
with their ships floating in six fath-
oms of water; and the site of the
first permanent English settlement in
America was chosen. On the next day
they landed, and it being one of those
beautiful May days for which Virgin-
ia is noted, the new comers thought
the place to be "earth's only Para-
A fort. cabins, and a rude church
were soon built; but with summer
came the deadly "ague-andl-fever" and
other diseases, which for some time
wrought havoc among the colonists.
Danger from the Indians was always
present; food became scarce; and
quarrels among the inhabitants were
frequent The story of the trying
years that followed with John Smith's
strenuous efforts to keep the colony
alive, his capture by the Indians and
rescue by Pocahontas, who was al-
ways a friend to the colonists, is well
known. Its climax was reached in
the famine known as the "starving
time of 1609-10," when only the time-
ly arrival of Lord Delaware, with pro-
visions and new settlers, saved James-
town from being abandoned.
The tide now turned, and thoughI
there were still many deaths, Virgin-
ia grew in strength. In 1614 a bond
of friendship was made between the
red man and the white by the baptism
of Pocahontas and her marriage to
John Rolfe. In 1619 the Virginians
were given a share in their own gov-
ernment. A popular legislature was
authorized, and the House of Burgess-j
es, the first representative assembly,
not only of America, but of all Eng-
land's colonies, met on July 30th, ini
the church of which remains may still
be seen at Jamestown. It was the
forerunner of our state legislatures
and United States congress.
i This happy event was followed by a
terrible disaster-the Indian massa-
cre of 1622-when nearly four hundred

30,000 square miles for swamp laudsl
in Florida may now be reclaimed and
eventually converted into a garden of
productiveness. It is sufficiently

above the level of the sea to make it
drain readily if the outlets are opened
up. Lake Okeechobee is itsels twenty
two feet above the the sea and can be
largely drained. There are no diffi-
cult engineering problems to overcome
it is only necessary to cut through a
rim of rotten limestone that extends
along the Atlantic coast and thus make
a natural outlet. Then will remain
the simple wopk of making ditches to
tap the interior, or else the same result
will be accomplished by developing
the natural arteries.
Salt marshes in many sections
along the Atlantic seaboard have been
reclaimed by private enterprises. The
Newark meadows are to be converted
and an arrangement of automatic tide
gates to be installed under the direc
tion of the government engineers and
financed by the neighboring city ot
Newark. N. J.1. This piece of work
will bie wade an object lesson to show
the possibilities of salt marsh recla-
mation, and many communities are
expected to follow the example.
The endeavors of Atlanta continue

Much of interest happened in the
following years of quiet and peace,
but 1676 was doubtless Jamestown's:
most exciting year. The most dra-
mniatic scenes of the famous "Bacon's:
Rebellion" were enacted in or near:
the little town. Bacon had his hi.stor-
ic quarrel with Governor Berkeley in
front of the state house whose foun-
lations have been recently uncovered.
Later, he beseiged and captur,'d the
town and had it burned, and until late
years the old tower, built as part of
the first brick church in 164:1-45, was
the only relic of the Jamestown which
Nathaniiel Bacon and his men destroy-

K schooling was gained at the Osceola

study at home during the evenings.,
Fitted him for Emory College. which

After graduating came a year of
