Mr. Valmore Izlar, who is at present
at Denver, Colorado. He says that
the air is dry, pure and delightful and
that he has fallen completely in love
with it. "It is true," he says, "that
we have quite a fall of snow, but the
atmosphere is so dry that it makes it
very pleasant." He says that he has
gained fourteen pounds and never be-
fore felt quite so well. He recently
took a trip to Cody. Wyoming, and
Sent over "Buffalo Bill's" ranch. He
says that it is great. He has also
made a trip to Phoenix, Arizona, and
says that before he returns he expects
to visit San Francisco. He recently
climbed to the summit of Pike's Peak.
It is covered with eternal snow. It is
beyond the tree line. and no vegeta-
tion except a small white and rarely
beautiful flower grows in that supreme
altitude. Valmore says that 'Denver
is the finest place on earth, but that
he has in no way lost his love for
Florida and its people. He will be
back in Ocala the coming November,
but will return to Denver the follow-
ing January, and make it his perma-

Tallahassee. Fla.. Jan. 11. 1U';9.
To the Members of Marion Camp,
United Confederate Veterans:
My Dear Friends--To each and ev-
ery one of you, greeting!
I am in receipt of a copy of the res-
olution adopted by you, endorsing my
work as secretary to the state board
of pensions, thanking me for my in-
terest in this work and requesting
the incoming administration to retain
me in my present work.
From my heart I thank each and ev-
ery one of you, my friends, for this
precious expression of friendship and
I had already been assured of my
position without any change under
the new administration, but you can
never know how much this endorse-
ment from home means to me, or how
I treasure every precious word of it.
It has been the greatest happiness
and pleasure of my life-this work
for the veterans of Florida and their
widows. I have found among them
many friends of my dear mother and
comrades of my father. Now, more
than ever will it be to me a sacred
trust and a privilege and honor to
serve them. Let that service be to
you my daily expression of gratitude
and thanks and be assured that I will
try to be worthy of the confidence
and esteem with which you have hon-
ored me.
Again I thank each of you, and I
beg that you will let me serve you
whenever I can.
Sincerely and truly,
Your friend,

Tallahassee, Jan. 7, 1909.

tary of the pension board, I will state
that it afforded me much pleasure to

Bell. She will act as secretary for

and sores came back after he had been
working hard and had taken cold.

of the young society set e(ajovyed a
very happy evening as !he' guests of
Miss Sallie Camp.
Miss Camp entertained in compli-
ment 'to her guest, Miss May Camp.
of Franklin. Va., and her sister, Miss
Leta Camp, who is one of the young
. debutantes. Miss Camp wore a h:;nd-
some white silk gown. Miss May

Camp was gowned in yellow messaline
and Miss Leta Camp in a gray bro-
caded silk. and they all three looked
exceedingly lovely. Receiving with
them were Messrs. Heron Todd,
Frank Harris, Jr.. and E. J. Mills-
The handsome Camp home, which
is one of the most beautiful places in
Ocala, was opened en suite for this af-
fair and three apartments were used(
by the young people, who were them-
selves beautiful ornaments to the
house. The rooms were further
adorned with vases of flowers.
The Pvening was spent most enjoy-
ably in testing the five senses of the
guests in an endeavor to discover who
had the keenest sense of touch, ta..te,
sight, smelling and hearing.
First tested was sight. Many arti-
cles were looked at and lthn from
memory a list of tl.-,im had to be
made. Next all the lights were put
out and many articles were passed
and they had to guess what they were
Iby merely feeling them. The sense of
snmelling was tested with whiffs of va-
rio''s wines, cologne, medicines, etc.
Then came the tasting of different
cheeses, nuts. crackers and other
things, followed by the hearing test.
In a room which could not be seen
by the guests there issues all manner
of both pleasant and discordant
sounds, and the locating of the sounds
was a great deal of fun.
Thip was a most novel and unique
mode of entertaining and one that
the young folks enjoyed thoroughly.
Mrs. John Taylor and Mr. Bruce
Meffert won the prizes for having the
best senses, the former receiving a
beautiful pin and the latter a pearl
handled knife.
For the best sense of smell Mr. Al-
fred Beck received a bottle of co-
logne. Miss Carrie Williams was giv-
en a pair of dark glasses so that she
couldn't see so well next time. Miss
Jean Teague got a huge stick of can-
dy for being such a connoisseur in
tasting, and Mr. .ames Taylor a tin
horn for hearing so well.
lee cream, cake' and candies were
served andI the hostess was assisted
dtitring lth evening by" Mrs. Clarence
('amp andi Mrs. \V. N. ('amp.

and through Mr. Flagler's generosity
he was given fresh seed and was ad-
vanced money enough to begin oper-
ations the next year, and made a com-
plete success. He was prosperous
and happy, and there are thousands
up and down the coast who are simi-
larly situated.
Mr. Flagler made the astounding
statement that although his road pass-
ed through an almost uninhabited
country, and is still in its infancy,
that its earning capacity last year,
(mile for mile) was onT. eighty dol-

The very cordial reception that is
being given Judge Taft in the south
means more than a desire to be cour-
teous to the president-elect. The lind-
ly feeling with which' he is greeted
everywhere in the south is more than
an exhibition of southern hospitality.
It is the expression of a belief that
his policies will be such that the way
will be opened for the south to get
into closer 'touch with the adminis-
tration of the government, and that,
too, without any sacrifice of the prin-
ciples for which it has always con-
The south was greatly disappointed
in President Roosevelt. I't expected
much of him and received very little.
He boasted that he was part southern
and yet he never succeeded in getting
.n touch with the south. He talked on
occasions as if he intended to do a
great deal that would be pleasing to
the south, but there was a lack of
harmony between his talk and hlis
It was hoped, for instance, that his
policy in filling the federal offices
would be the same in the south as in
the north, but that hope wasn't real-
ized. In the north the wishes of the
people were respected in the appoint-
ment of postmasters and custom
house and internal revenue officers.
The wishes of the people of the south
were not so respected. He refused
to take the advice of prominent men
of his own party in the north in this
matter. It is said that he gave as an
excuse for not doing so that he could
not find white men of his own party
in the south of sufficient standing to
justify him in departing from the
course his republican predecessors
had pursued, butt the excuse was not
a satisfactory one. The impression is
that he put negroes into the principal
federal offices here in the south to
satisfy the negro sentiment in the
north, and keep the negro vote in the
doubtful northern states in the repubh-
lican party. It is believed that hei
used the south as a sort of political
football. It isn'; to be' wondelred at.
therefore, that hlie kindly feeling the
south hadl for him when heI becanit
president gradually cooled.
There art other things that might
bo mentioned, but this one thing was
enough to prevent the oullthern pleo-
ple tfrouin getting g into closer tluchl
with lthe governlientli while h1o was at
lie head of it. They felt that while
ite responded to the wishes of the
lpople of the north in matters that
vitally concerned them he ignored the l

some Cuticura Ointment which would
heal them up. There was only enough
to apply once, but I found it helped
me so much that I sent for a set of

(NeI -The following is Mrs. Flagler's favorite poem, and was
given to us by her on our recent visit to St. Augustine. An insgrt
ito one's character is easily discernible by the poetry which is most
pleasing to them. The authorship of the poem is unknown.-Ed.

The Rights of Woman, what are they?
The Right to labor, love and pray;
The Right to weep wit: those that weep.
The Right to wake when others sleep.

The Right to dry the falling tear.
The Right to quell the rising fear;
The Right to smooth the brow of care,
And whisper comfort in despair.

The Right to watch the parting breath,
To soothe and cheer the bed of death:
The Right, when earthly hopes all fail.
To.point to that within the Veil.

The Right the wanderer to reclaim.
And win the lost from paths of shame;
The Right to comfort and to bless
The widow and the fatherless!

The Right to live for those we love.
The Righ: to die. that love to prove:
The Right to brighten earthly homes
With pleasant smiles and gentle tones.

Are these thy Rights? Then murmur not
That woman's mission is thy- lot;
Improve the talents God has given:
Life's duties done-thy rest in Heaven.

At Ormond. Mtami, Nassau, and at

system of hotels that has now become
famous all over the world. The most
colossal ones are yet to be construct-

Havana. When those two shall have
been finished he will then have an

in lher place. as New England is solid
in her place. is it now proposed that
we shall renounce? If we all go to-
gether into some new movement, will
we not be as solid as ever?lf we di-
vide. will we be happier and more har-
monious among ourselves or more in-
fluential with other sections by rea-
son of the strife which division will
engender? Were any people ever made
more powerful or prosperous by dis-
cord? Wily enemies have been known
to pursue the policy of dividing a pleo-

those who have most faithfully resist-
ed the foes of peoples thus threatened
have always insisted 'that their se-
curity was in their unity.

be dislputed for a ltmoment. That
these differences are radical, historic.
and persistent it would be easy to
show. That they are an advantage
to our section is a belief that we hold
without asking leave or license- of
any. The south is 'the social, political
and religious residuary legatee of
American civilization. Its day is com-
ing, indeed. is now. It has no netd to
fret, or be impatient of fortune. For
it holds the illuminating lamp of the
future of our national life. Only we
must preserve iur vantage and push
our way forward 'to a complete reali-
zation of our historic ideals. Nor
must we be in haste to give up either
our solidarity or our isolation. This
may seem a reactionary, or non-pro-
gressive sentiment; but it is neither.
Both the solidarity and the isolation
of peculiar peoples have been employ-
ed of history and providence in has-

This isolation and solidarity is no bar-

"Mr. Chairman, we Etrong-hewed,
and keen-figuring Americans are a
people, patient to the point of pesti-

Imells, and touches with a carnival
tickler the tyrant's threatening lips
in the very nick of time."
"To such a people. it must be con-
fessed, a chief magistrate, who has
himself no sense of humor, moving
like a horse tedder over the hayfield

ery drying blade of once green grass,

Socialists, then with the great indus-

ony of spirit with Noah Webster and
our glorious English tongue; taking
a fall out of nature fakers: exhorting
our women to avoid race suicide-
cannot be an unmixed nuisance.
