As indicating the metropolitan ten-
,lencies of the city. a new enterprise
has just "shied ifs castor" into the
business arena. A. J. Hoyt, who has
been constantly occupied during the
past year in important investigations
ou:sile the state has found an oppor-
tunity at last to open his detective
agency with headquarters in the
B;ickman building. Associated with
him is David S. Williams. an old res-
ident of Ocala. Fla., who comes to
Jacksonville wearing fresh laurels
just conferred by the people of Ma-
rion county for the successful man-
ntr in which he conducted their re-
c'nt county fair.
With Mr. Hoyts' experience and
skill, and Mr. Williams to manage the
business end. this should make a
strong combination. An interesting
feature of this agency, and new here,
although established in the larger cit-
ies, is the "still alarm patrol" for pro-
tection against fire and burglars. It
is now recognized as the most perfect
system yet devised for the safeguard-
ing of property. The watchmen go on
duty at intervals of thirty minutes,
one following the other upon the same
beat, and reporting any omissions or
delinquencies of his predecessor, and
a superintendent checks up the entire
force. Danger arising from lose by
fire and robbery would no doubt be
greatly reduced by such a system.-

Mr. W. R. Goodwin. one of the edi-
tors of the Chicago Breeder's Gazette,
onn of the standard farm journals of
the United States, will leave Chicago
for Ocala and Woodmar on January
me thirtieth. As is known to the
readers of this aperr he purchased a
lot at Woodmar, on Lake Weir, and
is now having erected thereon a pret-
ty winter home, which will be ready
for occupancy the first of February.
Mr. Goodwin took great interest in
our county fair ard expressed grert
pleasure at its great success. He was
one of the few who first sug4esteid the
hollin.: of a fair ani said the way to
do it was to do it. His coming to our
county is wor:h a great deal to It, and
through his coming rfany others will
be directed to do likewise.,


Mr. L. J. Brumby, editor of thl
above named publication, expects to
get out a superb number on the twen-
tieth of January. It will be devoted

    "Some four years ago I had the mias
    fortune to have my fe t get sore. The
    docto,rs could not tell me what it was.
    I used everything I could h-ar ,r rthiuk
    of but all so no avail. The ft,-rt wfre
    all cracked across the bottom a. i you
    had taken a knife and cut them every
    whichwav. They would peel up. ant
    oh, my! how they did hurt when
    would try to walk which I wa. not
    able to do for a long time. On,- day
    one of oui neighbors came to our hou.e
    and ask what was the matter. I
    showed hiimy feet and he said he had
    some Cut*ra Ointment which would
    heal them up. There was cnlv enough
    to apply once, but I found it helped
    me so much that I sent for a set of
    Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Ointment, and
    Cuticura Pills, costing one dollar, and
    to my great joy, my feet were cured
    and have never troubled me since. I
    shall praise Cuticura as long as I live
    for the great help it has been. Mrs.

    other displays the strains of the nest
    concert band in America will be heard
    for sixty days. The spirit of the man-

    be judged by the fact that it has se-
    cured, not one of the best. but the
    very best concert band in America
    for one of its permanent features.
    The same spirit goes through the en-

    done the best everywhere that its op-
    owrtunities made possible.

    \We repeat it-Ours is a SAFE store. Perhaps there may be othi-r safe

    other honest tradespeople besides ourselves-some, in fact, some up the
    street. some down the street, and possibly some further off.
    We've a wonderful lot of nice things to sell-we think nicer and cheap-

    almost more honest tnan anybody, though it isn't at all unlikely that in the
    course of time, by force of our example, somebody may grow to be just as
    honest as we are. You see, if we had to deceive in order to sell there

    proper, their spirit being more emno-
    anal. feel the doctrinal movement
    las. But they are not unmoved, as
    they show by relaxation of tests and
    tellnation to informal if not formal
    Uain as well as by increasing the
    aesthetic and social attractions of
    iher cult. Wild theosophic sects are
    tea and die. But marked is the in-
    peaseof skepticism, avowed or una-
    vowed. It advances probably every-
    where in the track of physical sci-
    eace. We are confronted with the
    great question what the world would
    he without religion, without trust in
    providence, without hope or fear of
    a hereafter. Social order is thrtar:-
    e;ed. Classes which have hithitrto

    I ecessar- to make up by an increase
    ot the flowers of government for the
    lost influence of religion.
    Belief in the Bible as inspired and
    God's revelation of himself to man
    can hardly now linger in any well in-
    formed and open mind. Criticism.
    history and science have conspired to
    put an end to it. The authorship of
    the greater part of it. including the
    n ot important books. is unknown.

    There remains of the Old Testa-
    meat, besides its vast historical inter-
    et, much that morally still impresses
    and exalts us. Of the New Testa-
    maUt there remains the moral ideal of

    SChrist, our faith in which no uncer-

    but it is not found in all men. and in

    ten so low and grotesque that we can-
    not imagine its origin to have been di-

    It seems that the president toted

    ofien. He had fair sailing as long as
    he confined his attacks on newspa-

    Here is the way congress treated
    his recent special message:
    "The report contends that the pres-

    A Imely Article By Hon. Robert L. Owen of Oklahoma who Says President Accosted

    money of the bank shall not be loaned
    to any of the active officers of the
    bank. It provides that not over four
    per cent. shall be paid for a bank de-
    posit of six months time, or longer,
    and not over three per cent. for short-
    er periods of time.
    It provides that no excessive loans
    shall be made to any individual or cor-
    4poration. It provides for a substantial
    and safe reserve in cash. It provides
    for frequent examinations of the state
    banks. It permits the redeposit with
    the bank of its own contribution to
    the guarantee fund. provided such de-
    posit is secured.
    The law is skillfully drawn to pre-
    vent its abuse by speculation, by im-
    providence, or by corrupt officers.
    The state bankers on December 7.
    190S. held a convention for the pur-
    pose of considering this law and per-

    fecting the law out of their
    ence in Us present operation.
    The first argument in favor
    guarantee plan is that it will
    powerful tendency to promote
    tablish the stability of our n
    commerce by the prevention (
    Ic. Financial panic, which is


    ,of the
    have a
    and es-
    of pan-
    the ba-

    sis of commercial paralysis and disas-
    ter, is invariably caused by the with-
    drawal of deposits by frightened de-
    positors for hoarding. Many causes
    may contribute to excite the distrust
    of the depositor, but if the state has
    available an adequate fund from
    which the depositor knows he will be
    immediately "paid, the effect of such
    knowledge is to prevent the withdraw-
    al of deposits for hoarding, and will
    prevent the more acute form of "a
    tun on the bank." When a depositor
    Is satisfied in his mind his content-
    ment goes far 'to establish the com-
    mercial confidence upon which our
    commercial prosperity must rest. and
    business will remain stable and undis-
    turbed when the fifteen million depos-
    itors of the United States feel secure
    in their deposits.
    The comptroller's reports for thirty
    years shows that for every dollar in
    currency in the banks there is $10 of
    deposits. In other words one dollar
    of currency in the active American
    business life is turned over ten times.
    and becomes a basis of ten times tha:
    amount of bank credits: and the re-
    verse is necessarily true that if th' de-
    positors become frightened and with-
    draw a hundred million of currency
    for hoarding it would result in a cor-
    responding shrinkage of credits ap-
    proximate!y of ten times this amount ;
    This means commercial paralysis.
