Miss Daisy Davies, traveling sec-
retary of the young people's work for
the woman's branch of foreign mis-
sions, arrived in Ocala Tuesday and
opened the sessions of the institute
at the Methodist church at three
o'clock in the afternoon.
A number of out of town delegates
came in to attend the instuite, as
Miss Davies can only visit a ew plac-
es in the state and a large number
were present at the meetings.
In the afternoon a hymn was sung,
followed by the devotional exercises
conducted by Mrs. Walter Hood.
The Woman's conference discussion
was a most profitable and interesting
one, each auxiliary telling a different
strong point it had attained and how
they could be helpful to othee auxili-
The children's hour was a most hap-
py part of the program and was in
charge of Miss Davies, who wore a
Chinese costume for this talk, which
she gave so entertainingly.
In the evening, after the opening
scriptural service and a beautiful dou-
ble quartet sung by Messrs. Gates,
Taylor, Little, Moore, Gerig, Blalock,
Phillips and Nash, Miss Davies deliv-
ered a very splendid address on the
missionary work. She is a delightful
talker and thoroughly covered her
subject, and in a style that was en-
joyable to all her listeners. She dis-
cussed her subject in a most magnet-
ic manner and it is a treat to have
had her visit Ocala.

W hen shown positive and reliable proof that a certain
remedy had cured numerous cases of female ills, wouldn't
any sen-sibxle _woman conclude that the same remedy would
also benefit her if suffering with the same trouble ?
Here are two letters which prove the efficiency of Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.

Red Hl It;'-s, Mli-s.--"Vords are ilniea'tluate to express what
Lytlia IinkAlint's It'eetable Cotimpolundll hias done for me. I
suffered fromt :t femialce di.sei.':' anid weakness which the doc-
tors said was causedd bya libroid tumorr, anrd I cimmnenced to
think there was: no help for me. Lydia E. PiinXlnliu's Vegetable
Compound made nie a well woman after all other means had
failed. My friends are all asking what has helped me so much,
and I gladly recommend Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
pound."-Mrs. Willie Edwards.
Hampstead. Maryland.-" Before taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound I was weak and nervous, and could not
be on my feet half a day without suffering. The doctors told
mne I never would be well without an operation, but Lydia E.
Pinkhan's Vegetable Compound has done more for me than all
the doctors, and I hope this valuable medicine may come into
the hands of many more suffering women." Mrs. Joseph H.

We will pay a handsome reward to any person who will
prove to us that these letters are not genuine and truthful
-or that either of these women were paid in any way for
their testimonials, or that the letters are published without
their permission, or that the original letter from each did
not come to us entirely unsolicited.

What more proof can any one ask ?

For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for
female ills. No sick woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
has thousands of cures to its credit.
SMrs. Pinkham invites all sick women
to write her for advice. She has
guided thousands to health free of charge.
Address Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass.

We found out long ago that womenGEA PIO
would wear what they pleased, in
spite of the pleas of the male mem-i
oers of their families or even an apos-
tolic exhortation. If a man would keep
the average woman in a good humor,
the least he has to say about this mat-
ter the better. We cannot refrain,
however, from speaking of 'two sights
wfe saw recently. One was a red-
headed woman dressed in blue. Her
dress was sky blue, her shoes were
light blue, her hat was big blue-the
hi-gest hat we ever saw. She was a
tall. thin woman-a veritable blue, b
streak. \We saw another sight this

"What place La\e these observa-

his masterpiece. No more practical

Why Our Navy Should Not

The following statement of reasons
why oir navy should not be enlarged
is just issued with the endorsement
of a large body of the leading men of
the country:
1. Because we have fought: foreign
oes, English, Spanish and Mexican
oly six years ln the 125 years since
the revolution. In every foreign war
we made the first attack. With less
danger from attack than any other na-
tion, we are now spending more for
past war and preparation for future
war than any other nation in the
2. Because our extent of coast line,
has little relation to danger from at-
tack. The second Hague conference
lbps provided for immunity from i.om-
tardment of all unfortified towns and
from levying contributions by threat
o( bombardment. We should be safer
still if we reduced fortifications, as
One of our delegates to the Hague has
S. Because the Hague conference
also provided for arbitration of dis-
putes over contractual debts, thereby
runoving excuse for our keeping a
cavy to prevent forcible collection of
ach debts of South America to Eu-
4. Because a navy is less needed
than ever to protect South America.
as it is now perfectly capable of a de-
feasive alliance among its nations to
repel any wanton attack from out-
side. Reasons which made the Mon-
roe doctrine necessary when there
was a "Holy Alliance" and the weak
South American republics were un-
connected by telegraphs or railroads
have no application when modern
communications, soon :o include the
Panama canal, and enormously in-
creased population, wealth and mutual
friendship make them now far trom
eager to continue our over-lordshilp.

Lighl on r Praons

Since I came to Tallahassee, on the
4th. I have incidentally iAcked up
some information relating to the ex-,
ercise of the pardoning power, whic(b
convinces me that much of the ad
verse criticism directed against the
board is undeserved. It is known:
that I have freely and vigorously con-
demned the indiscriminate and whole-
sale pardoning of convicted criminals,
with which the board has been charg-
ed. but I have always held myself
ready to correct any injustice done'
by me to officials or individuals, and,
therefore, finding from casual con-
versations with members of the par-
doning board that I, in common with
other newspaper writers, have been
too severe in reflecting upon the
board, it gives me pleasure to repair
in a measure the injustice inflicted.
Now there is the recent action of
the board, by which it was stated
that, of fifty-two applications present-
ed, fifty were granted. This, on the
face of the mere statement, looked
very bad. but I have been assured by
one of the board whom I have known
for years, and whose truthfulness, in-
tegrity and patriotism I have the ut-
most confidence, that every pardon
granted was supported by the best of
reasons: that several of those par-
doned had served out their terms. and
others had nearly done so. and that
the pardons in these cases were
granted solely for the purpose of re-
storing the recipients to citizenship.
In the case of those who had Lear-
ly finished their terms, there were
several objects besides restoring citi-
zenship for granting the pardons. one
of them being the wholesale restrain-
ing influence of an unexpired sen-
tence impending and ready to be in-
flicted in any case of misbehavior.
For nearly all. if not all. of the par-
dons were conditional. If the man
pardoned violates his parole by com-
mitting any lawless act whatsoever.
he is to be returned to prison, and
that, too, without any expense of re-
trial, whether his second offense is
the same as the first or not.
Possibly the most admirable fea-
ture of this conditional pardon. grant-
ed just before the expiration of tne
sentence is the fact that it leavesthe
constantly aTiding impression upon
the mind of the man pardoned that he
has noft rt paid his debt (of punish-
menti to the state: whereas, in the
case of one who has served on his[
full term. he feels that he has fully
discharedl his deot and is. tb refore.j
under no obhliation:s to the star.> for
leni-enc'. Consideration of this fact
actuates the board in many cases and
accoultst for some of those fifty par-
dlons which, a few weeks agz. arous-
ed so 'luch advorse- criticism.

A hitherto unpublished story about
Gon. Robert E. Lee is given in the
Manufacturer's Record of January 14,
in an article entitled "Rounding Out
of 'ht Nation's Life Through South-
ern riD-velopmennt." in the course of
which ii is said:
A" hbe close of the civil war sev-
eral young men who hadl served in the
southern army. so the Manufacturer's
Record has been told by one who 'as
in the party, called on Gen. Robert E.
Lee. In explanation of their visit
they said to him:
"'Your name has carried us into
many places where we did not want
to go. Now, we want to take your
name with us where we are going,
and we have come to ask for your au-
tograph on these photographs.'
"General Lee in reply, said:
"If my name has carried you, as
you say, into places where you did not
want to go, I want you to be careful
not to carry it into any place where I
would not want it to go. Where are
you going?"
"One said that he was bound for
Mexico. another that he was looking
to the far southwest, and the others
to distant sections, because they felt
that there was no opportunity for
them at home by reason of the de-
struction caused by the war"
"General Lee said to 'them:
'As soldiers you served y-our state
faithfully; you did your duty, you
risked your lives in the service of
your country: but your state needs
you today worse than it needed you
in war. It has hard problems to set-
tle. Its business interests have been
destroyed. and for these very reasons
it seems to me your state has a eight t
to ask you to stand by it in these
days of trial and to help to rebuild its
fortunes. Consider whether you do
not owe to your state, under these
con.litions, the same devotion to it,
the same self-sacrifice that you gave
to it at the call of war."
If it had been possible for this
thought of the great Confederate sol-
dieir to have been carried out, and if
the hundreds of thousands of young,
virile men who left this section with-
in a few years after the war, and the
two and a half million people who
have lefitr during the past forty
years. had been able to find at home
scope for their energy, employment
for their talents, whether of brain or
muscle, what a mighty difference
there would have been, not only in
the south, but in other sections. The
south would have gained the energy
of these people and the energy of the
chilldr-n born to them. while other
sect ions which have been enriched by
heir work would to that extent have
n1i.,: less relative ?progress than they
have mnade.
