At the Baptist church, after a soul-
stirring sermon by Pastor Carroll on
the qualifications of good citizenship,
in which he paid his respects to the
machine politician and political boss-
es, the following resolution was of-
fered by Mr. Isaac Stevens, and
adopted by a rising vote, practically
"Resolved, That we, the members
of the First Baptist church of Ocala,
do hereby most earnestly petition
the honorable members of the Florida
legislature at its sessions of 1909, to
pass a resolution submitting to the
vote of the people of Flor'ida an
amendment to the constitution of the
state to prohibit the manufacture and
sale of intoxicating liquors through-
outt the entire state, believing that
such action will be for the temporal.
mental and moral uplift of the peo-
ple of this commonwealth."
The Baracca class and the B. Y. P.
U. also adopted similar resolutions.
At the evening service the Rev. Dr.
Edmunds of the DeFuniak Springs
Baptist church, preached to a lcrge
congregation in the interest of state
mission work.

Early mass was h'ld at St. Phillips'
Catholic church, and for the services
the decorations of the church were
quite elaborate.
The regular morning service was
held at ten-thirty o'clock and Father
Bottolaccio, the priest in charge of
S't. Phillips', preached a most appro-
priate and beautiful sermon on the
"Resurrection of Christ."

At half past three. o'clock Sunday
afternoon at Grace Episcopal church,
the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph
T. Birdsey of Macon, Ga., was chris-
tened. He was given the name of
Herbert Ford, which was the name of
Mrs. Birdsey's father, the late her-
bert A. Ford of this Pity. Standing,

The eleven girls played games and
had a merry romf15.
At noon a splendid dinner was en-
joyed under the trees. Besides de-
lightful sandwiches, crackers, olives,
pickles, etc., Mrs. Taylor had a big
freezer of strawberry cream, and a
iarge chocolate cake, which was
greatly enjoyed. A fire was built and
tea brewed.
During the afternoon while the
girls were roaming about, Mrs. Taylor
and Mrs. Todd hid a quantity of Eas-
ter eggs, and when they returned they
had a big time hunting for the eggs.
There was a golden egg for each girl,
which Mrs. Taylor had painted, be-
sides a number of other colored ones.
This picnic crowd did not reach
home until dark. and all were very
enthusiastic over the good time they

very beautiful, indeed, and the
churches were all charmingly be-
decked in honor of Easter day.
On holy Easter day hundreds of pu-
rified hearts were uplifted in prayer
and thanksgiving.

At Grace church early communion
was held at seven-thirty o'clock, and
the eleven o'clock service was follow-
ed by the communion service.
This pretty littl(- church was lovely
in its decorations of palms, ferns.
vines and flowers. Three beautiful
crosses of roses and lilies completed
the decorations.
On the altar were used for 'the first
time the exquisitely embroidered
white silk altar cloths, which were
worked by Miss Margaret Eagleton
and prsenttdl by her to the church
just before her departure for Penn-
sy!vania. They are very handsome
indeed. anl i't was a matter of regret
that ihe donor was not present at the
Easter service.
The music was especially lovely at
this service. The vested choir sang
two lovely anthems and Mr. Edward
Drake sang a beautiful solo as an of-
Rector Harrison preached a very
magnificent sermon, and never was
he more sincere and earnest than on
this occasion. He took his hearers
back with him to the crucifixion, and
made them feel the full meaning of
(lin' glorious resurrection.
In the afternoon at four-thirty
,)clock a children's service was held
at Grace church, and was largely at-
tended. not only ~'y the children, but
by many grown people as well. A
splendid collection for missions was
taken at this service and the Easter
offering .at the morning service was
a splendid one.

At the Presbyterian, Christian and
Methodist churches there were splen-
did sermons on the "Resurrection of
Christ." preached by Dr. Dodge, Rev.
W. H. Coleman and Rev. W. H. Bar-
nett, and special Easter music was
rendered by the choirs and at the
Christian church Mrs. Winston sang
a solo at t-Te morning service.
All of these churches were prettily
decorated with flowers.

In the afternoon at the Methodist

held a special Easter service with
Miss Marie Burnett as leader. The

The empty cross stands on the hill,
Fast falls the evening gloom;
While darker shadows, drear and still,
Enfolds the new-made tomb.

There, lifeless, rigid, lies the Lord,
Whose keen and qtick'ning breath,,
Strong in the accents of his word,
Awoke the dead from death.

The fleeting hours, in silent sweep,
Spreads on to deeper night,
But not from Death's enthralling sleep,
Arouse the Prince of Light.

Now darkness yields its reign today,
And still the guarded grave,
In triumph claims as lawful prey
The Christ who came to save.

O'er the dead King, low in the dust,
No bright'ning glory gleams;
While hope in hearts by sorrow crushed,
Sinks with the waning beams.

While Nature, gladdened, sings.

I will tell you about "Easter Egg and the Rabbit:" Long,
l'g :ag,. there lived in Germany a Count and his family. They
possessed riches, so lived in a beautiful house, full of the lovely
things that mcney can buy. Alas! a war came. and the Count
lost his beaLtiful home and his entire fortune. With the Count-
ess and the children he went to live in a simple little hut in a
fine, large forest. Many poor people lived there, and he became
one of them. It was a pleasure to the Countess to bring into
the lives of these people some of the exquisite things with
which her former life had made her familiar. For the pleasure
of her own children, also their playmates, she collected at Eas-
'ter-time a large number of eggs, and colored them-many beau-
tiful colors-as had been their former custom. These she placed
in little nests, here and there, throughout the forest. On Easter
morning the children were to find as many eggs as possible.
Now, the forest was full of rabbits, and every time 'the children
came near a nest a rabbit would jump out and disappear in the
bushes, until they became sure that the rabbits had laid the
eggs. So that is why the rabbit and the egg came to be asso-
ciated together at Easter-time.
As a Banner writer, we extend a greeting and delighted
welcome to the poetess of Tallahassee (formerly of 'this county)
and hope Mrs. Louella Knott will often entertain the Banner
readers with beautiful poetry, and any other writings she may
feel inclined to bestow on the readers of "our" Banner.

It will be a source of interest and
pleasure to the many friends of Mr.
J. F. Head, secretary of the chamber
of commerce for the past rew months,
to learn that he is to become general
freight agent and auditor of the Vir-
ginia, Carolina and Southern Railway,
and yesterday afternoon tendered his
resignation to Mr. J. Allen Taylor,
president of the chamber, to take ef-
fect as early as possible. Mr. Head
will be located at Lumberton, the
headquarters of the road.
The Virginia, Carolina and South-
ern Railway is operated from Lum-
berton to St. Paul and it is the inten-
tion of the company to extend the aine
ultimately to Fayetteville, by which
means the road will have connection
with two large systems, the Seaboard
Air Line and the Atlantic Coast Line.
Mr. J. F. L. Armfield is president and
Mr. C. N. Blue. vice president and
general manager.
Secretary Head has practical knowl-
edge of 'this line of railroad work and
many years of experience, having con-
ducted a freight claim agency in con-
nection with his position as secretary
of the chamber of commerce, and
prior to accepting the latter position
devoted his time to -the agency alone
with splendid success. For seven
years he was in the traffic department
of the Coast Line in this city.
Before he resigned he was chief
clerk in the office of Mr. W. C. Pul-
liam. division freight and passenger
agent, from which he received high
recommendations.-Wilmington (N.

Saturday was a day of Easter egg
hunts, and was a very happy day for
the little folks of the city, and many
excited little ones were telling great
tales of the eggs they had found hid-
den in various places, and which nad
been laid by the Easter rabbits.
One of the largest and most elabor-
ate of these hunts was the one giv-
en by little Marion and Frances Lum-
mus, the sweet little children of Mr.
and Mrs. S. M. Lummus.
Mrs. Lummus, her mother, Mrs.
jPyles, and her sister, Miss Mattie
Pyles, and quite a number of of the
children' mothers helped in making
the afternoon a memorable one for
the little folks.
Twelve dozen beautifully colored
eggs had been hidden and each child
was given a pretty little red basket
to fill with eggs, and great fun they
had in finding these treasures.
Ice cream and cake was served to
the little ones, and the fortunate chil-
dren will not soon forget the good
time they had.

Saturday morning Miss Ettie Cam,
one of the teachers at the public
school, entertained her class with an
egg hunt at the residence of Mrs. Ol-
ive Batchelder, where she makes her
I Saturday afternoon Mrs. G. W. Mar-
tin entertained the children of the
primary department with an Easter
egg hunt in the church ydrd. Besides
the 'many-colored eggs there was also
for each child a colored egg filled with
candies. Miss Jessilu Martin, who
helps her mother with this class, and
several other grown-ups, attended
this hunt to see that none of the little
folks were neglected. Both of these

The Junior Epworth League mem-
bers were given quite a novel treat
Saturday afternoon at Ocala's beau-
tiful golf links. It was in the nature
of an egg rolling, an amusement that
is very popular at the White House,
and was given by Mrs. M. M. Little
and Miss Florence Walters.
Two strings were stretched and
sides chosen, the children on one side
rolling the eggs to the other, ten
points being counted for whichever
side got the eggs nearest to the string
on the other side.
After the rolling was over the chil-
dren hid the eggs from each other and
had a merry time looking for them.
Sandwiches, cakes and other re-
freshments were served to the chil-
dren by Mrs. Little and M2ss Walters.

Our information has always been
that our forefathers not only "intend-
ed," but "consecrated," this country
to be "an asylum for the oppressed of
all lands," but Major Izlar's conten-
tion is that 'this "intention" was re-
stricted to the white race and only
the professing Christians of that race.
Surely Major Izlar must be wrong;
this must be merely an opinion of his,
for we are of the belief that our con-
stitution and laws make no such de-
claration nor resqiction, and the ear-
ly policy of our government was not
marked out along such narrow lines.
In its formative period there were no
exclusion acts and its doors were
flung wide open to those who felt
themselves oppressed, and, believing
as they did that our.flag represented
the benign symbol and type of free-
dom, not only in name, but in reality,
there flocked to it immigrants from
nearly every kindred, tongue and
tribe, and there was built up under
this policy a government that is the
pride and the boast of the nations of


My good friend, erstwhile senator
and present representative, the states-
man from St. Augustine, Hon. W. A.
MacWilliams, during a lull in the pro-
ceedings in the Florida legislature,
thus delivered himself: "The differ-
ence, gentleman, between an agricul-
turist and a farmtr is this: A farmer
makes his money in the country and
spends it in town, while an agricul-
turist makes his money in town and
spends it in the country."
This epigramatic axiom or axiomat-
ic (?) epigram is here reproduced for
the purpose of refutation, and like
many others of like calibre, belongs
in this twentieth century to be con-
signed to a state of inocuous desue-
tude. For today in this era of applied
science, in this age of labor and time-
saving devices the type of successful
man is he of diversified interests who
finds rest and recreation in diversi-
fied pursuits; in fact, often his pri-
mary success leading him to even
greater achievements in his ultimate
work-on his side issues, to use the
vernacular. I can give no better il-
lustration than that of Mr. Flagler,
the great developer of the east coast.
My plea or argument is this---that
our business and professional men
consider, and consider carefully and
wisely, the possibilities of farming,
fruit and truck growing,, stock raising
and kindred pursuits as for the in-
vestment of both their surplus cash
and energy. Don't only read of the
fellow that clears his thousand or so
dollars an acre, but "go thou and do.
Florida is land-poor in the sense
that she has so many thousands of
acres of land that are capable of
yielding great returns, adding to the
material wealth of the state and en-
riching her people.
The business or professional man is

If we of the white race are the su-
perior race, why need we fear? And
why should we not lift up all other
nations and races to a higher and no
bier plane? Why should we claim the
right to drive out and annihilate an
other race and monopolize 'this part
of the world as exclusively our own';
If we recognize God as the creator
surely the whole world ought to be
our country and every man our neigh-
bor. If God intended that every na-
tion should be segregated and made
the oceans as barriers separating the
nations, one from the other, then we
are trespassers here and are where
we do not belong.
If God holds the world in the hollow
of his hand, and guides and directs
the destinies of nations, we take it
that things are going on about like
he intends them.
The Chinese are a different people
from us, it is true; their civilization is
widely along other lines than ours,
yet the teachings and maxims of Con-
fucius are not totally unlike those of
Christ. The Chinese nation numbers
a population of upwards of four hun-
dred millions, and all along the ages
they have been employed in peaceful
avocations and have not made war on
other nations, and show no disposi-
tion to do so now.
Why should we refuse the hand of
fellowship to the Japanese? They are
imitating us in the art'and science of
war. and are rapidly assimilating
themselves to our methods of civiliza-
If we are since in the prayer,
"thy kingdom come on earth as it is
in heaven." why should we not hold
earthly fellowship with all nations?
Why should we want to fellowship
with them in heaven and not fellow-
ship with them here?
Major Izlar says that the Jews are
"desirable citizens," yet while roam-
ing over all the earth they have held
themselves together as a distinctive
people, ano they carry upon their fea-
tures ihe marks of their nationality
today as plainly Ss they did when
Moses wrote the commandments on
the tables of stone.
If the Jews. without assimilating
with other nations, have made desira-
ble citizens, why should we hold that
other nations would not do likewise?
Why should we not do as well by them
as we have done by the Jews. sharing
with them the crust of our hospitality
and giving to them the benefit of our
higher civilization and all that it im-

our oldest bank are not only the larg-

est breeders of fine Shorthorn cattle
in the state, but are among the most
extensive truck growers in Florida. I
think they have this year about 100
acres in melons alone. The managers
of our other bank are also extensive
farmers and use every means to pro-
mote agriculture.
The mayor of Ocala is a very large
truck grower also. The president of
the city council, in addition to large
manufacturing interests, operates
four large farms, and everyone mod-
ern and clearly up-to-date. And I
could go on through a long list of our
leading citizens.
Again, and in the limited space al-
lotted to me, I want to ask for
thought and investigation of this idea
on the part of the business and pro-
fessional men of Florida. With intel-
ligent effort success will come, and
you will be better off mentally, mor-
ally, physically, as well as financially.
And the benefits will be doubled,
for by increasing the income from ag-
ricultural products in your section
you will naturally increase the vol-
ume of business of your town or city.
And you wont come into competition
with anyone, either. Florida can sell
much more than she will ever produce
for very many years yet to come.
Of course we want more immi-
grants, thousands more, but while we
are waiting for them, let's get busy
ourselves. I have not here dwelt
greatly upon the point that in the till-
ing of the soil it is necessary to com-
bine a certain amount of intelligence
and labor. If a man doesn't know
without being told that he must now-
a-days give to all agricultural pursuits
the same careful thought, study. time,
energy and enthusiasm he would give
to any other business than he is fitted
to be neither a farmer of an agricul-
turist-or anything else.-L. J. Brum-

Truck Grower, in the State Press Edi-

for Jacksonville, where he goes again
to have his eyes treated, and to have
a pair of glasses Atted. He recently
had a cataract removed from one of
his eyes, and the operation was cuite
successful. He thinks that his sight
will soon be fully restored.

enclosed with a very neat and sub-
stantial fence. This work is being
done by the Woman's Club. The

will be a thing of beauty. The trees
recently planted around the school
yard are growing splendidly.

been in it until last week, when, in
company with Mr. J. W. White, the
land agent of the Seaboard, he visit-
ed it, and it far surpassed any ideas
that he had ever formed of it. He
once thought that the lands of Ma-
rion were fine and would do to brag
about, and he was also impressed
with the vastffess and fertility of An-
nuttalaga Hammock in Hernando
county, but none of these lands, he
says, approach the lands of the Gulf
Hammock for richness and tropical
luxuriance. They are the richest
lands, he says, that he has ever seen

through them wil open them up to

boost to that section of our state.

We hoped to avoid newspaper con
tioversy on this subject, but It be-
comes necessary to state our posi-
tion on account ofhe notice in Tues-
day's Banner, saying the proposed
benches met with the approval of the
Woman's Club. As wooden benches
they are above criticism; as an ad-
vertising scheme they leave nothing
to be desired, but the civic depart-
men't of the Woman's Club registered
a protest with the county commis-
sioners as soon as it was known that
they had granted this permission, be-
cause we believe it will cheapen the
stately beauty of our court house
grounds and walks to fill .them with
wooden advertisement benches, no
matter how nice the bench nor how
refined the advertisement.
Moreover, we do not believe our po-
lice surveillance sufficient to protect
against loafing on the benches, and
all sorts of trash as a consequence.
Of course our voice is very small
in this matter and we don't want to
be unpleasant, but our position Is
very decided, and we don't like to be

from the Congressional Record of
April 7th:
Mr. Clark of Florida-Oh, the gen-
tleman can draw all the fine distinc-
tions he wants to. First and last, I
say this to you, that I am here in-
structed by my people. If this repub-
lican party, to which I do not belong,
but which controls the house-and
they have got a right to control it-
put in the bill what my people in-
structed me to get if I could, I will
vote for the bill regardless of the par-
ty framing it.
Mr. Finley-When the gentleman
says that he will vote for the bill,
does he mean that he will then be
voting with the democratic party or
with the republican party?
Mr. Clark-I will be voting with
those democrats nearest my views.
Mr. Byrd-I would like 'to ask the
gentleman a question.
The Chairman--Does the gentle-
man yield ?
Mr. Clark of Florida-Yes; just for
a question.
Mr. Byrd-If I understood you, you
said that if what you wanted was in
the bill you would vote for it. Would
you do that, notwithstanding every-
thing else in the bill meant robbery
to the American people? Answer
Mr. Clark of Flo rnla-I have just
stated that i would vote for it if 'they
put in what my constituents wanted.
no matter what else they pnrt in.
Mr. Finley-Is that the price?
Mr. Clark of Florida-I want to
know what the gentleman means by
Mr. Finley-I did not mean any-
:hing offensive, but if you had any po-
litical convictions.
Mr. Clark of Florida-I have not
the convictions of a man who repre-
,sents a district that has got nothing
in it in the world but a bale of short
cotton, a "nigger" and a mule. (Great
The few "sops" the republicans
may have thrown at Mr. Clark are
not enough. to change the sectional
aspects of this bill.
I i his ver able s leech on the



We believe, without exception, that
every soldier who served in the Union
armies during the civil war receives
a pension from the federal treasury.
The Confederate soldier has no such
source of supply. In addition to the
pension he receives from the federal
treasury, the Union soldier also re-
ceives a pension from the state t-om
which he enlisted, or at present re-

votion to the Union and its every part
we bide the day of our triumph with
patriotic resignation. (Applause.)
If the democrats had stood together
they could have defeated this bill, as
there were enough dissatisfied and
disaffected republicans who would
have joined with them to have effect-
ed this result.
Overlooking that part of Mr. Clark's
speech in which he said that he
would vote with the republicans if
they would put a tariff on the things
grown in his district that he wanted
to see protected, we cannot help from
saying that he showed exceedingly
bad taste in going out of his way to
make an attack on Mr. Bryan. He
Mr. Clark of Florida-Mr. Chair-
man, I will tell the gentleman exact-
ly what I meant the country to under-
stand, that we do not intend, so far
as I am concerned, and I believe the
people I represent, to follow your Ne-
braskan populistic leader any more.
(Applause and cheers.)
Mr. Bryan had nothing to do with
this measure now before congress.
He has been 'the standard bearer of
the democratic party three times,
which ought at least to accord him
dignified treatment.
Mr. Bryan has* been defeated for
the third time, and he is now "down
and out," and it is not in good taste
to kick a man when he is down.
The Ocala Banner raised its voice
against Mr. Bryans' third nomination
when he was in the strength of his
popularity, not that it thought less of
him than it ever did, but because it
foresaw that his election was impos-
That was the time for Mr. Clark to
have let his voice be heard-to do so
now is not at all courageous, and is
not a dignified performance.

We think that Major Izlar is cor-
rect. The white man-nominally, at
least, a Christian--has built up on
these western shores a very brilliant
civilization, as he has likewise done
on the opposite shores of the Atlan-
tic: but in the accomplishment of
which he has followed in the foot-
steps of the founder of our religious
faith about in proportion as a drunk-
en man tracks a straight line.
Forgetting that God is the creator
of all men and that the whole world
is bu't one vast family, in establish-
ing this civilization the white man-
nominally a Christian-has pillaged,
plundered and annihilated. He has
waded in blood and steeped his soul
in crime.
After planting the banner of the
cross on these shores, our Christian
forefathers, forgetting the fundamen-
tal precept of the founder of our
taith. "love thy neighbor as thyself,"
but remembering the older text, "that
the heathen are given as an inheri-
lance, and the uttermost parts of the
earth for a possession," they begafl
on a career of pillage, outrage and
extermination, that shocks all human
Speaking of which Draper says:
"It was one unspeakable outrage,
one unutterable ruin, without discrim-
ination of age or sex. Those who did
not die under the lash in a tropical
sun died in the darkness of the mine.
From sequestered sand-banks, where
the red flamingo fishes in the gray of
the morning; from fever-stricken
mango ,thickets, and the gloom of im-
penetrable forests: from hiding plac-
es in 'te clefts of rocks, and the sol-
itude of invisible caves; from the
eternal snows of the Andes. where
there was no witness but tie all-see-
ing Sun, there went up a cry of hu-
man despair. By millions upon mil-
lions, whole races and nations were
cut off. The Bishop of Chiapa af-
firms that in his time more than fif-
teen millions were exterminated.'
Did they find a (civilization here?
Surely they did. Read the descrip-
tion of one of the highways in Peru,
and then imagine what a civilization
they must have had to have construct-
ed such a work.

A feature of the message is a re-
commendation that the birthday of
Abraham Lincoln be made a legal hol-
iday. The governor says:
"The three greatest men this nation
has produced are George Washington,
Robert E. Lee and Abraham Lincoln.
By legislative enactmnet this state
,as declared the anniversary of the
birthday of the first two a legal holi-
dlay. It is recommended that Febru-
ary 12, the anniversary of -the birth
of Abraham Lincoln, be declared a
legal holiday."
The message is almost wholly com-
posed of reports of the different de-
partments, but it is a very comprehen-
sive picture of the state's govern-
ment, it activities and what it is do-
ing for the welfare of the people.-

Senator D. H. Baker was honored
by the senate by being made presi-
dent protem. In honoring him the
senate highly honored itself. He is
a grand old character, hailing from
the old state of Kentlcky, where chiv-
alry and bravery is one of the recog-
nized qualities of its people, he com-
Ibines the best elements of them all.
Heo is a C(ts'terfieldian1 in manners,
and is one of the most approachable
of men, whose kindly nature and un-
doubted ability endears him to all
who know him. The honor was just-
ly conferred, and we rejoice that he
was recognized, and congratulate him
and thV state oil the happy result.-

amended by the councils of the va-
rious towns and cities, the same to
be submitted to the qualified electors
as a referendum. This is undoubted-
ly a better plan of safeguarding the
interests of the people of the various
towns and cities than the usual man-
ner of passing any old bill which may
be introduced, without giving it any
attention whatever."
There is not a session of the legis-
lature, as the governor declares, dur-
ing which a great deal of time that
could be put to better use is not oc-
cupied by squabbles over charter
changes desired by various cities.
And these changes do not, by any
means, always represent the wishes of
the people of those cities, but are de-
sired for some special purpose by
some particular clique. In this way
many a charter has been amended in
a way to work a direct Injury to a
The governor's recommendation is
democratic, moral and progressive in
character. It conforms to the well
beloved principles of local self gov-
ernment. Its adoption would most
!certainly make all future efforts to
have the state tamper with city char-
ters very unpopular and would thus
minimize the activities of various sel-
fish interests in that direction. And
it would throw upon the citizens of
municipalities new responsibilities
which would awaken them to a Uigh-
er sense of civic duty and place in
their hands the means to readily real-
ize a more perfect progress toward
good government than they now pos-
sess, hampered as they are by the
present laws.
It is certain that no aggregation of
men selected from all portions of a
state can judge of the requirements
of any city as well as the city's own
people. No argument is needed to
convince a sane man of this postu-
late. And as tho governor's plan is
simply to transfer power to make
changes in municipal government
from those who know very little
about what is needed to those who
know all about it, it sigaON.... laG

Marvels have crowded upon the

that they have almost ceased to be
Wireless telegraphy, for example,
was received as a matter of course;
and thus its subsequent development
has hardly been remarked.
The Roentgen rays, by which the
interior of the opaque bodies may be
observed and the skeleton photo-
graphed within a fleshy envelope,
hardly caused a ripple in the world
accustomed to a daily diet of revolu-
tionary discoveries and inventions.
We are not so sated with. mechan-
ical sensations when the first phono-
graphs were placed on the market a
few years ago, and ,the event attract-
ed much attention; but the improve-
ment of the invention, almost to the
point of perfection, has not received
sufficient notice from a public which
no longer is capable of wonder.
Henceforward -the voices of all the
great men and women will be pre
served forever for future generations.
All the great orators, the great sing
ers, the great musicians and the great
actors shall live perpetually and shall
be ready at any time to serve the
pleasure and convenience of even the
humblest and poorest.
Coupled with the moving picture
device, the phonograph will make
records of every great event, and
thus will create the most trustwor-
thy and valuable sources of histori-
cal information.
A thousand years hence our remote
posterity shall view the animated re-
production of the inauguration of
President Taft and the departure ot
Theodore Roosevelt for Africa, the
busy scenes of Brnadway in 1909, and
all the activities of 'this generation of
human beings.
What an interesting thing for us
would be a reproduction in the cam-
eraphone of such events as the
preaching of Savonarola, the behead-
ing of Charles I., and of Mary, Queen
of Scots, the progresses of Elizabeth,
surrounded by her courtiers, Oliver
Cromwell a't the head of his army, the
abdication of Napoleon, or the crown-
ing of Charlemagme at Rome.
What a vivid picture such records
would give us of past times!
But, while we fancy the pleasures of this kind,
which are being stored up for remote
generations to come, the phonograph
is serving also for the pleasure of the
contemporary age.
It has carried good music and va-
rious sorts of entertainment to the
isolated farmhouse and mining camp,
as well as to the urban parlor, and
it habs provided for most folk a better
class of musical entertainment at a
lower cost.

of genuine civilization, making the

A monster pompano was captured
by the Hansen brothers last Friday
night and sold to the Indian River
& Lake Worth Fish Co. The fish tip-
ped the scales at 26 pounds and was
a beautiful specimen of pompano. In
length it was 3 feet, 1 inch, and was
the second largest fish of the pompano
family ever captured in these waters.
Last October one was caught weigh-
ing 30 pounds, of which mention was
made in our columns. The editor of
the Punta Gorda Herald disputed the
fact of it being a pompano, claiming
it to be a permit: so we have had an
inquest over th4s one, and a jury of
expert fishing authorities pronounce
it guilty of being a real pompano.
The fish was shipped to the Hotel
Ormond, where it graced the Sunday
table of that pop* lar hostelry.-Fort

From Saturday's Daily:
The feature of Thursday's session
in the house came in the shape of a
joint resolution introduced by Mr.
Hillburn of Putnam, proposing an
amendment to article 19 of section 1
of the constitution of Florida, in or-
der to permit the enactment of a law
prohibiting the sale of intoxicating
beverages in the state.
The resolution was introduced, read
and referred to the committee on
constitutional amendment. This will
be the first matter taken up by the
Mr. Davis of Madison stated that
he was preparing a bill providing for
the regulation of the sale of liquors
in "wet" counties of the state. He
is strongly opposed to any attempt
to divest a municipality of any right
of self-government, and therefore con-
siders a regulation of the sale of li-
quor the better and wiser plan.
A message from the governor, trans-
mitting copies of the report of the
report of the trustees of the internal
improvement board regarding the con-
dition of the state school fund was
read, accepted and ordered spread
upon the journal.
A communication from the govern-
or transmitting a report of the com-
mittee appointed to examine the

Cam. providing that a manager be
required, with the assistance of 'the

The resolution was opposed by Mr.
Carter. "I don't want to pose as a

"but I say that those members desir-

These resolutions, which were in-
troduced by Mr. Hatcher of Columbia
county, are as follows:
"Whereas, There is agitation in
this state upon the jirt of certain
persons, looking to the bringing about
of state-wide prohibition; and,
"Whereas,The state tax on real and
personal property is now about as
high as can be placed, so as to enable
the owners of real and personal prop-
erty 'to enjoy any profit from the own-
ership thereof; and,
"Whereas, There is a large deficit
at present in the state finances, be-
cause the appropriations made by the
last legislature were not taken care
of by a sufficient amount of millage
authorized by the legislature; and,
"Whereas, In order that the appro-
priations made by the last legislature
could have been taken care of, there
would have been a necessity upon the
part of the legislature of levying ful-
ly two more mills for state taxation
than was provided for at the last ses-
sion of the legislature; and,
"Whereas, This deficit, as well as
the necesisties for the state in the fu-
ture, it being new, growing and in
the process of development, must be
provided for; and,
"Whereas, To deprive the state and
the counties of the revenues now de-
rived from licenses, issued for the
sale of liquors, wines and beer, would
have to be provided for from some
other source; therefore, be it
"Resolved, That the Honorable A.
C. Croom, comptroller of state, be re-
quested to immediately furnish the
house with the amount of money re-
ceived by the state and the different
counties for the sale of said licenses.

Jews very easily fall in line with the
principles of our government and the
laws of a Christian civilization. Ihey
are an intelligent, industrious and
peaceful people, and without difficulty
adapt themselves 'to the laws and hab-
its of Christian civilization-the prin-
ciples of which are not new to them.
Therefore, they make intelligent, law-
abiding citizens, and can be, and are,
admitted to citizenship, and take an
active part in the promotion of our
But tell me, Mr. Editor, how about
the Indians? How many of them have
been admitted 'to citizenship? How
many of them are worthy of it? How
many of them in all the years our
race has occupied this country have
really and truly adopted the habits,
beliefs and customs of our Christian
civilization? What have they been in
all these years but an expense and
enemy of the white man and his civ-
ilization? If we have failed with all
of money, example, and-well, yes,
arms-in making of them "desirable
citizens." what can you expect of the
immigrants who would come here if
your "any. Lord," views should pre-
vail? Coming as they would without
an idea ot our views of virtue and civ-
ilization and steeped in their heathen-
ish superstitions and practices, they
would not fall in with our ideas of
virtue, morality, civilization, but
would band to corrupt and demoralize
our own people. Like in California.
'they would want Lo push themselves
in our place, and if that is yielded to
them, then what? Miscegenation, and
after a while a mongrel people, who
would make our country a nation
without a distinctive race-which,
God forbid!
Did kt ever occur to you. Mr. Editor,
that all of the white nations in this
little world of ours are Christian na-
tions, and that not one of the nations
made up of people of other colors is?
Long ago the nations of the white
race accepted Christianity, and as a
result are far in advance in every-
thing which tends to make life worth
living, of the other nations of the
But. Mr. Editor, I repeat, we want
whole lot more I could say on this
and kindred subjects, but must take
another time to do it.
But. Mr .Editor, I repeat, we want
no people here, in any numbers, who
will not, and cannot be made desira-
ble citizens of. Whence came the
cry all over this land of ours that
this is a white man's country? What
was back behind it? Was, and is it
not. than any country to be great
and grow greater the citizenship
should be homogeneous? Selah,!

Many people object to taking the
strong medicines usually prescribed
by physicians for rheumatism. There
is no need of internal treatment in
any case of muscular or chronic rheu-
matism. and more than nine out of
every ten cases of the disease are of
one or the other of these varieties.
When there is no fever and little (if
any) swelling, you may know that it
is only necessary to apply Chamber-

"And it was the third hour, and
they crucified him."

"Joseph of Armathae, an honorable
counsellor, which also waited for the
kingdom of God, came and went in
boldly unto Pilate, and craved the
body of Jesus.
And when he knew it of the centur-
ion he gave the body to Joseph.
And he brought fine linen, and took
Iim down, and wrapped him in the
linen, and laid him in a sepulchre,
which was hewn out of rock, and

And, very early in the morning, the
first day of 'the week, they came unto
the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
And they sadl among themselves,
who shall roll away the stone from
the door of the sepulchre.
And when they looked, they saw
that the stone was rolled away: for
it was very great.
And entering into the sepulchre
they saw a young man sitting on the
right side, clothed in a long white
garment; and they were affrightened.
And ne said unto them: Be not af-
frightenea. We seek Jesus of Naz-
areth, which was crucified. He is
riseff. He is not here. Behold the
place where they laid him.
And they went out quickly, and fled
from the sepulchre, for they trembled
and were amazed; neither said they
anything to any man, for they were
This is the Easter story as told in
parts of the last two chapters of St.
Mark. What need is there ,to say
more? What man can add strength
to such a picture as these passages
bring to our minds?
It is to remember the death and
burial of our Lord on 'riday and to
celebrate the resurrection of this
same Lord on Sunday, the first day
of the week, that we meet and hold
beautiful services in our churches on
Easter day. Let us not get so far
from what the celebration of this day
means. Forget self and remember
what occurred this day nearly 2000
