SFrom Friday's Daily:
The twenty-sixth annual session of
I the Florida State Dental Society was
hhtd in the parlors of the Ocala House
Thursday, June lSth.
We regret that there were not as
many present as the nature of the pro-
ceedings warranted. The speeches de-
livered and the papers read would
have reflected credit on a much larg-
er gathering.
Promptly at the hour of 10 o'clock
Dr. C. L. Nance of Tampa, president
of the society, assumed the chair, and
p wi'h gavel in hand rapped the society
Sto order.
Rev. R. 11. Barnett offered a very
appropriate pIrayer and at its conclu-
sion Mayor Robertson welcomed the
association to our city. It was Mayor
Robertson's "first offense" in this di-
;,4 reaction and he did the honors grace-
fully and with the utmost composure.
Dr. J. Edward Chace's name was
-'. next ,"i the program, and he spoke
^.W without' notes. Too infrequently the
general public reads a speech when
Sprinted! in full. but those who have
spent two the opportunity and do not read Dr.
Portuncle and hae's speech will be doing them-

day after- selves a very great injustice, for sel-
dt Oal dlomn have the words of the English
to Ocala la tnguage been used to convey one's'
thoughts more chastely. These words
are strung together like so many glit-
s morning tearing pearls. The doctor's friends
ays' mi feel very proud of his effort.

er an lit- location, ending by saying that

state he touched a rseponsive chord
ron, Mass.. which was followed by very hearty
nds.ral weeks applause.
nnersar. Speaking of the "ethics" of the pro-
session, Dr. Kemp said:
er and his
er andhi e do not advertise "cheap mater-
rth. ial." "cheap dentistry," "cheap opera-
a iins" and "chioap actions" In order
[iss Lucy to induce you into our parlors, and

report was accepted and adopted.
Doctors Chace of Ocala, Buck of
Jacksonville, Nance, Dean. Mason and
Latham of Tampa, and Hall of Pen-
sacola gave a demonstration of clini-
cal laboratory work. Two members,
Doctors Waldo and Hicks, were ex-
pelled from the society, for violation
of its rules.
The Metropolitant Band gave an
open air concert last night from the
band stand on the court house green
in honor of the dentists, and numbers
of persons were on -the streets and on
the lawn to enjoy it, and after the
band concert Mayor Robertson enter-
tained the society at his elegant res-
idence, at which a number of his
Ocala friends were invited to assist
him in making the entertainment the
success it was.
Ocala has entertained the society
on three occasions and it has always
been a source of enjoyment, but we
understand that an effort is on foot
to make Atlantic Beach the perma-
nent place for holding the annual ses-


The State Dental Society concluded
its 26th annual session and adjourned
Saturday afternoon.
So far as we could ascertain it en-
joyed its session in our little inland
city very much and many courtesies
were rhown the individual members
and the society as a body.
They were given a "smoker" by
Mayor Robertson; the wives of the
members were given an automobile
ride to Silver Springs and the Metro-
politan Band gave an open air concert
in their honor Friday night.
Before adjournment St. Augustine
was selected for the next meeting
place and the following officers were
elected for the next ensuing year, viz:
President, D. G. Barnett, Arcadia;
first vice president, L. F. Blalock,
Ocala; second vice president, L. Col-
son, St. Petersburg; recording secre-
tary, G. B. Tison, Gainesville; cor-
responding secretary, W. A. Dean,
Tampa; treasurer, C. L. Nance, Tam-
pa; executive committee, R. L. An-
derson, Plant City, Geo. D. Young, St.
Augustine, F. C. Lapham, Tampa, J.
W. Dorsey, Palatka.
The following members were re-
commended to the governor to be ap-
pointed as a state board of examin-
ers: W. G. Mason, Tampa, F. C. Kemp,
Key West, Chas. D. Gamble.
The committee on preamble and res-
olutions presented the following,
which were adopted with much flavor
and enthusiasm:
"Whereas.. The committee of this
association realizing the, many codrte-
sies extended to this association dur-
ing our meeting; and,
"Whereas, We feel that some ex-
pression of appreciation be te-ndered;
therefore, be it
"Resolved. That the society extend
a vote of thanks to Hon. J. D. Robert-
son. may';' of OGeala: also to the den-
tists of Ocala. the hotel management,
the two local papers, the Ocala Ban-
tier and the Evening Star, Rev. Dr.
Barnett, and last. but by no means
least, the ladies of the reception com-
tmitteo. Mrs. Blalock. Mrs. lHaniton
and Miss Butler."'

Mrs. L. F. Blalock, who was chair-
man of the committee appointed to
look after the entertainment of the
dentists' wives, certainly deserves
credit for for her zeal and efforts
along this line, also Mrs. H .M. Hamp-
ton, who assisted Mrs. Blalock.
Friday evening, while the dentists
were enjoying a "smoker," given by
the local dentists, and later in the

evening enjoying the hospitality and
ice cold refreshments tendered them
by Mayor Joh-n D. Robertson, Mrs.
Blalock and Mrs. Hampton entertain-
ed the ladies in the parlors of the
Ocala House with several musical se-
lections, duets, etc., after which they
all attended the New Airdome. From
there they went to the mayor's resi-
dence and serenaded the jolly party
of dentists, after which they returned
to their respective places of abode,l

soon demonstrated that they were as

Practically everyone was called on
for a speech, or a song or a toast, and
nobly responded. Iater in the even-
ing the musical talent of the guests
was brought into play and this feature
was an enjoyable one. A serenade
from the front sidewalk was rendered
by the visiting ladies.
Hon. E. W. Davis, Mr. R. R. Carroll
and Mr. L. J. Brumby ably assisted
Mayor Robertson, each responding to
calls and expressing the appreciation
of the city of Ocala of the honor con-
ferred by the organization in holding
its 1909 meeting here.
The mayor proved himself as great
success as a host and entertainer as
he has that he is a good citizen and a
public-spirited official, who takes
pride in the reputation of his city.
As th-e dentists say, "Mayor Rob-
ertson is all right.".

Good idea of what occurred:
"There was a marriage in Cana of
Galilee. * And both Jesus
was called and his disciples to the
marriage. And when they wanted
wine the mother of Jesus said unto
him: They have no wine. * *
And there were set there six water
pots of stone * containing
two or three firkins apiece. Jesus
saith unto them: Fill the water pots
with water. And they filled them up
to the brim." Matt. 11:1-7.
How many guests? Perhaps 100
would be a liberal estimate, but sup-
pose all the inhabitants of the town
had been invited as well as Jesus and
his company. It is plain from the
.context that they had consumed the
supply originally provided and there
was a call for more wine. The Lord
of heaven and earth did not remon-
strate or urge temperance-he provid-
ed, immediately, more than 100 gal-
lons of wine for the company! Again,
we are reminded that wine should
I accompany the feast, whether the
festival have a strictly religious or
mundane character.
But the habits of Jesus were such
that his enemies accused him of feast-
ing with publicans and sinners and of
being a wine-bibber! If such an ac-
cusation were made against any of us
would we not. repudiate the charge, or
wish we could do so? But neither Je-
sus nor his disciples saw the neces-
sity of clearing his character-they
left it as an example to others. Is it
possible they did not understand that
it might prove a reproach to drink
wine even though in moderation?
When Jesus lived the moralists of
the world were declaiming in speech
and exhorting in writing against the
sins of intemperance at the table. Not
even the moralists of our time had
been more bitter than Cato had just
been and Juvenal was about to, be,
but Jesus spoke not one word in aid
of the crusade of his time! It is im-
possible to believe that perfect wis-
dom approves of drunkenness, but
Ham was punished for lack of rever-
ence while Noah's drunkenness was
passed lightly over-in all the Bible
we find no declaration that it is a
sin to make wine or to drink it. Why
not, when the praises of the wine cup
are not omitted?

* *
In some measure, at least, we are
what our food makes us-the law is
now busy with the making of the food.
Adulteration of food is a sign that
high prices begin to cut down living
expenses and quantity must be pre-
served even at the expense of qual-
ity. The hungry man with the price
of one loaf only in his pocket will
take the bigger one-it is to answer
the demand that food is adulterated.
Our Saxim ancestors were compelled
to grind beech bark with their barley
and bake it for bread-lthe flour of
wheat only the rich could buy. In
many countries of Europe the coarser
cereals are still used for bread-they
may be more healthy, bu; oats are
for the body and wheat for the brain:
when we are compelled to change
what will be the change in us?
Excess is not only sinful, but dan-
gerous but it is fair to assume that
drink has as much to do with the mak-
ing of a man as food. The Frank and
the German were originally of the
same blood-the Frenchman had a
greater infusion from the Latin strain
but isn't it true that climate and food
have also contributed to make the dif-
ference we now see? We are not
claiming that either is the better-
we do say that humanity has been
helped by the difference which gave

us two where we might have had but
one. Is it nothing that the French-
man has been drinking wine all these
years while the German kept to the
mead of his fathers except as it has
been translated into beer? Did the
roastbeef of old England have more
to do with the making of the English-
man than his ale?
For this time let us forget the right
and wrong of alcoholic drinks and
ask ourselves whether any great
change would be wrought in our na-
tional characteristics by the sudden
abstinence to which we are unaccus-
tomed. The pioneers who conquered
the wilderness were not drunkards.

Many years ago I heard a distin-
guished American orator deliver a
lecture upon the evidence of immor-
tality outside the Bible. In the stress
and pressure he held the rapt and
breathless attention of an immense
audience comprising all that was
most cultured, brilliant and renowned
in the social and official life of the
He dwelt with remarkable effect-

iveness and power upon the fact that
nowhere in nature, from the highest
to the lowest, was an instinct, an im-
pulse. a desire implanted, but that ul-
timately were found the conditions
and the opportunities for the fullest
realization. He instanced the wild
fowl that moved by some mysterious
impulse. start on their prodigious mi-
grations from the frozen fens of the
pole and reach at last the shining
south and the summer seas; the fish
that from tropic gulfs seek their
spawning grounds in the cool, bright
rivers of the north.: the bees that find
in the garniture of fields and forests
the treasure with which they store
cells, and even the wolf, the lion and
the tiger, that are provided with their
Turning to humanity, he alluded to
the brevity of life. its incompleteness,
its aimless, random and fragmentary
careers: its tragedies, its injustices,
its sorrows and separations. Then he
referred to the insatiable hunger for
knowledge, the efforts of the uncon-
querable mind to penetrate the mys-
teries of the future, its capacity to
comprehend infinity and eternity, its
desire for the companionship of the
departed: its unquenchable aspira-
tions for immortality: and he asked:

In the Carolinas much progress is
already being made in reclamation
work, while Mississippi, Louisiana
and Texas and Arkansas are giving
great attention to the same subject.
In Louisiana at least 7,000,000 acres of
land may thus be reclaimed. Much
of that land Is not even swamp, but
stretches away so level for such great
distances that the rainfall is not dis-
posed of rapidly until ditching of the
simplest kind is resorted to. When
that is done-it is being done upon
an ever-increasing scale, especially
since the incoming of a number of
western land operators and large con-
tractors-the soil, most of it merely
the detritus of the ages, ranging to a
depth of 1000 feet, readily commands
a minimum of from $50 to $60 an
acre. In North Carolina plans are
forming for draining Mattamuskeet
Lake, which, when carried through,
will add 90,000 acres of fertile land
to that portion of the country and en-
hance the value of other thousands
of contiguous acres. A larger under-
taking looks to the drainage of some
millions of acres in the Florida Ev-
erglades.-Richard H. Edmonds.

One an's Work for Florid

Ar. Flagler's Transformation of the East Coast Reads Like an Arabian Night's Stor

Has Seen the State Double in Population and in Wealth
^-^*^*itt***************^^ 49t***********^*

Th1. %.ate of Florida has an area of
'*4."**2* square ii.les. It has over 1200
miiey o0 seaeoaa-s In ISS0 8is popula-
tit. wa.- 24';.493, an average of five
jertuon to the square mile. There
were but 44 x miles of railroad in the
tate. There were no factories, but
a few small sawmills, a few banks
with lout little capital. and but little
busaine anywhere. The salubrious
rcmate of the state was but little
ksown. except locally, and tourist
travel was of no importance. Orange
growing as an investment had just
started in a small way in various
parts of the state. Florida had only
btwn known as a land of alligators and
sw-ects, and as a desirable place-spe-
etally for consumptives. Its possibil-
itbes as a playground for the Union
or as, an important source of supply
for peg,'tables and fruit of all kinds,
Sumbo'r. cotton, naval stores, etc., and
.t a profitable location for factories of
any kind were unthought of. The
east coast of Florida. over 51040 miles
in extent. was utterly unknown to the
world. There were a few towns long
the east coast, of which Jacksonville,
St. Augustine, New Smyrna, Titus-
%ille. Melbourne and Key West were
the pr4nclpal ones. The population of
the counties now known as the east
coast counties- Duval. St Johns.
Volusia. Bre\ard. St. Lucie, Dade and
Moros-- was :39.935. The gross val-
iation in IS4 of these counties for
taxes was $12.16f.137. The gross val-
uation for taxes for ihe whole state of
Florida in 1?l4 was $60,042,655.
The time for mail from New York
or th.e west varied from five to scven
days to Jacksonville. and many chang-
es of cars had to be made before the
weary traveler could land safely in
Jacksonville by rail from the north or
west. Such things as through Pull-
man or sleeping cars were unknown.
Travel was largely by steamers from
Cbarleston or Savannah by sea or by
the IN. Johns river to interior points.
The gauge of all the principal rail-
roads south of Quantico on the east
and the Ohio river on the west were
wide gauge. or 5 feet, 2 inches, v while
that of the northern and western
lines are 4 feet. S 1-2 inches. making
it necessary for the southern roads to
maintain costly and cumbersome" car
hoists at various points and extra sets
of wheels or trucks in order to secure
a through move-men' of cars without
breaking hulk. Rates were high. the
time consumed by freight movement
was '.ry long. and in consequence
iher-e was but small interchange' of
buIsin.-.s lot-twet n the s.uth and north
by railroad. These are some of the
principal difficulties that had to be
So\.wrr)me, in 'he uplilding of Florida.
In 1%4 a great man came to Flor-
ida in search of health and pleasure, a
man who had made a large fortune,
and who believed that it was given
him in trust to be used "in the wis-
est way for the benefit of his fellow
man and for the greatest good to the
greatest! niumher."

in S Augustine the Alcazar h ,-i- and
th,. beautiful casino and baths. all of

Iwo miles of asphalt streets, comfor-
table homes for his employes. estab-
lished water works, sewers and (lec-
tric lights for his properties. He built
here his car shops, and gave steady
employment to hundreds of men.
In November, 1888, he bought the
"Astor" road from Tocoi from St. Au-
gustine, and to Palatka, again bridg-
ing the St. Johns river at that point.
In 1890 he bought the S. V. White
railroad from San Mateo to Daytona,
changed the gauge and connected it
with his road at East Palatka, thus
making a through line to Daytona and
the Halifax river. He put steamers
on that river to New Smyrna to
bring out the orange crop of that lo-
cality. In 1890 he bought the Ormond
hotel at Ormond, and later enlarged
it to accommodate the people attend-
ing the great automobile races from
all over the world, and which made
the Ormond-Daytona ocean beach
course famous.
With the railroads that he bought
and as their principal assets he got
168,<00( acres of land. which he sold
to settlers at low prices, on easy
terms. He established a model farm
at Hastings, and the results of that
example gave Hastings its start. This
year, 1909. the products of Hastings'
farms will realize nearly a million
dollars to their owners from Irish pl.-
tatoes chiefly.
In 1892 he obtained a charter "roin
the state authorizing any extension of
his line of railway along the Indian
river to Miami and Key West. and in
the summer of 1S92 the work of con-
struction began. In February, 1l93,
he opened his line to Rockledge. and
shortly afterwards to Cocoa. where
a wharf was built to connect with
steamers on the Indian river.
In March, 1894, he bought the
grounds at Palm Beach, on Lake
Worth, and began the construction of
the Royal Poinciana Hotel. This
work was the most daring project ev-
er undertaken in Florida up to that
time. Lumber and all supplies, in-
cluding food and labor,. were conveyed
by rail to Cocoa. Eau Gallie or Jen-
serf as the railroad was finished to
tbese points, then transferred to ihe
stteamers and carried to .Jupiter. then
re-loaded on narrow gauge' cars and
transported to Lake Worth at lJuno.
and thence rafted or bargel down the
lake ien miles to Palm Beach. Theb
Royal Poincinna. with 5.5t gutlesi
rooms, was opened to the public in

In January, 190S, this road was

(connection is made by steamship for

%\as a big crowd. a motley crowd, that
greeted the players when the umpire'
called play ball.
Up to the seventh inning the O(ala
gentlemen had displayed their gen-
erosity to their Sanford friends by
presenting them with six beautiful
large-sized swan's eggs of royal pedi-
gree. At this stage of the game their
Sanford players stopped long enough
to take an Esquinlau lunch (that is..
they took up an extra hole in their
belts), respectfully declined with
thanks any more delicacies for the
lime being and proceeded to help'
themselves to one run. This whe'lted
their appetites and in the next inning
they helped themselves to five more
nice juicy ones, and took one mor'-
nibble in the ninth. which evened upl
the love feast. Then came another
display of magnanimity on the part
of both teams. Nice fresh swan's
eggs were handed out freely up to the
end of the fourteenth inning, when
Sanford grabbed another run, and won
the game. which the score said was
s to 7 in favor of Sanford.
Then everybody went wild with en-
thusiasm-big and little, old andt
young, white and black-all stuck to
it that they knew our boys could play
hall if they had a mind to.
it was a good game all the way
through: in fact, it was the only ieal-
ly interesting game played on th.
home grounds this season. Costly 'ot-
rors were made on both sides. but the
-t'w brilliant plays that were made
helped to offset them. For once the'
home people had n., just cause for
knocking. There was no wrangling or
high kicking, as often happens at ball
games the decisions of the umpire'
were accepted good-naturedly. It was
sood ball playing. and the best of it
all was that the players conducted(
themselves as gentlemen.

Ocala at Orlando
They were there from the sticks
yesterday afternoon to see the first
of the series of three games between
Orlando and Ocala, and the largest
crowd of the season nyelled itself
hoarse, and rooted until the echoes
could be heard all over the city. The
unanimous verdict was: "The best
game of the season," and while the
grand stand was comfortably full. yes-
terday, its seating capacity will no
doubt be taxed at the games to be
played today and tomorrow.
When the home team returned
from Ocala two weeks ago they were
loud in their praise of the boys of
that little city, and especially of the
Ocala baseball team, and from the
way they conducted themselves yes-
terday they showed themselves not
only to be ball players, but gentlemen.
The game was stoutly contested
throughout and not until the big 0
that marked the third out in the ninth
inning did the crowd succeed in get-
ting a deep breath.
Ocala made the first score in the
second inning. Harris making the tal-
ly on a two base hit in deep right by
Galloway. The home boys were kept
busy holding the visitors where they
were up to the fifth, when Story scor-
ed on Pounds' hit to short. With the
score a tie the crowd was on its tip-
toes, but the old lucky seventh gave
the Orlando boys two more, Bennett
scoring on Pounds two base hit and
Pounds on a beautiful drive for two
bases by Windham. From that point
to the end of the game both sides
were retired in one, two, three, order.

Mrs. Lee, who has only been rcsid-
ing in Ocala for a short while, proved
an ideal hostess, and the afternoon
with her flew on merry wings as dain-
ty stitches were interwoven with
pleasant conversation.
During the afternoon, besides the
very delicious punch, pink and white
ices and pink and white cake were
served by Mrs. Carmichael and Miss
Mary Carlisle.
A pleasant feature of the afternoon
was the reading given by Mrs. F. E.
Wetherbee, who is exceedingly talent-
ed along this line. Her selection was
greatly enjoyed by the other guests,
who were the following: Mesdames C.
F. Kemp, E. H. Mote, Edd Carmichael,

lock, F. G. B. Weihe, G. R. McKean.
W. M. Goin, C. L. Bittinger. 0. M.
Smith, Miss Josie Williams and Miss
Mary Carlisle.
Mrs. Kemp is a woman of delightful
personality and those who have met
her during her short visit to Ocala
are indeed fortunate.
As a souvenir of the afternoon she
was presented a bouquet of white andi
pink lilies.

Atlanta is an Inland city, and, lik
all inland cities, is always doing bat
tie against discriminating freight
The railroads, it seems to us, ar
blind to the fact that Atlanta is wort]
more to them than any seaport cit
of twice its size, for all goods con
Ing in and going out of Atlanta mus
be hauled by the railroads, and the
have to make no "divy" with an
steamship or schooner line. As it I

It is all grist for the railroads, an
everything must pass directly through
the railroad hopper. Every interic
city Is a "cinch" for the railroad
and why they foster the building u
of seaport cities at the expense c
the Interior cities is one of the my!
series in the railroad transportation
problem that it is impossible for u
to solve.
On what principles of right or equ
ty this is done we cannot comprehend
unless it is based on that text c
scripture which says:
"For he that hath, to him shall b
given; and he that hath not, froi
him shall be taken away. even tha
which he hath."
The rate from Savannah on certain
articles to Nashville, Chattanoogi
Memphis, etc., is 17 cents, but to" Al
lanta. a much shorter distance, it I
35 cents, the discrimination bein
made against Atlanta because it is ai
interior city. and is dependent solel:
on the railroads for the transportation
of her freights, and in favor of Nast
ville. Chattanooga, etc., on the ground
that they have water transportation
On certain articles the rate fron
Savannah to Atlanta is 13 cents, an<
from Atlanta to Savannah, on identi
call the same articles the rate is 2;
cents, the discrimination being madi
in favor of Savannah simply and sole
ly because it is a seaport city. and i:
not dependent entirely on the rail
roads for her freight.
Atlanta carried her grievance )be
fore the Georgia railroad commission
but her prayer was turned down bI)

proposition two against the unjus
and unequal discrimination and there(

that jar you! Yes. sir, three ful'
grown men make this startling propo
sition and continue the iniquity.
It does not seem to enter the cra
niums of these three men that Atlan
ta is growing despite these frightful
discrimination, and were it dead
that there would be none to make
these complaints.
Philosophers agree that men easily
believe what they want to believe.
This observation seems to apply with
special force to the Georgia railway
Another reason given by the ma-
jority members of Georgia's railroad
commission is that the rate to Nash-
ville. Chattanooga. etc.. is largely
controlled by river transportation-
the very injustice of which Allan: a
complains and takes the pains to
point out.
Why give to those cities which
hath and deny to those which bath
not? Why -not place the interior cit-
ies on an equality wi:h the river and

seaport cities? Why not let every
tub stand on its own bottom? Why
not give every city an equal chance
in the race for commercial empire?
Surely it will not hurt a railroad to
build up an interior city.
Another reason given for the wrong-
ful decision by the Georgia railroad
commission is that the rate is rea-
sonable by comparison, not with sea-
port. but with other inland cities.
Does not the Georgia railroad com-
mission know that every interior city
is suffering from the evil effects of
these cruel exactions and discrimina-

The interior has the numerical
strength and must settle this ques-
tion by carrying it into politics and

The following letter comes from
Paris. It was written by a gentle-
man who has large business interests
there and in New York City, and at
one time was in the diplomatic ser-
vice. This gentleman has made a
close study of political and economic'
questions, and like most men who do,
and are not embarrassed by personal
considerations, does not believe in the
restraint of trade by the levy of high
tariff duties.
The letter was written to a most
estimable lady of this city, who, like
him, has Interested herself in these
The letter is as follows:
"Paris. June 3, 1909.
"Dear Madame:
"I am glad to know that your ideas
about free trade agree with mine. I
am enclosing with this letter a copy
of a letter written by Ben Franklin on
this subject. What he says then was
never so true as it is today, and'one
would almost think that he wrote it
having in his mind the United States
senate of 1909. The name "protection"
is a misnomer. The doctrine is no
longer what it was in the days of Hor-
ace Greeley, when he looked upon it
as a temporary expedient to enable
the country ultimately to produce and
manufacture more cheaply than the
same products could be imported from
abroad. It has now become merely a
system of public taxation for private
profit. I hope the congress will pass
a thoroughly bad bill now, for that
will mean a more sure and early tri-
umph for the principles of a low tariff
within the next four years. The Unit-
ed States senate has never made so
degrading an exhibition of itself as it
is doing at this time under the con-
trol of pure greed and selfishness. I
am ashamed of some of your southern
senators and cannot understand their
attitude. some of whom I personally
know and greatly respect."
Here follows the inclosure of pood(
ol, B-.n Franklin's lohter:

Letter of Benjamin Franklin to the
Count De Vergennes
Passy, 16th March. 17S"3.
Sir: I received the letter your Ex
cellency did me the honor of writing
to me respecting the means of pro
moting the commerce between France
and America. Not being myself wel
acquainted with the state of that corn
merce, I have endeavored, by conver
station with some of our merchants. to
obtain information. They complain
in general of the embarrassments ii
suffers by the numerous internal de
mands of duties, searches, etc., that
it is subjected to in this country
Whether these can be well removed
and the system changed. I will not
presume to say. The enclosed letters
may. however, inform your Excellen
cy of some of the circumstances, and
probably Mr. Barclay. our consul. may
furnish others. In general, I would
only observe that commerce, consist-
ing of a mutual exchange of the ne
cessaries and conveniences of life, the
more free and unrestrained it is, the
more it flourishes; and the happier
are all the nations concerned in it.
Most of the restraints put upon it in
different countries seem to have bean
the projects of particulars for their
private interest. under pretense of
public good.
I mvself wish most earnestly that
France may reap speedily those great
advantages from the American com-
merce, which she has so well merited
by her generous aids in freeing it
from its former monopoly: and every-
thing in my power to promote that
desirable end may be depended on.
With great respect. I am, sir, your
Excellency's most obedient and most
humble servant.


Editor McCreary of the Gainesville
Sun iz fond of moralizing, and it is a
relief to the mind to read after him
when in such a mood. He declared
in his last issue: "This is an age
which adores power and success. It
is impatient with failure, yet how fre-
quently the failure of today becomes
the success of tomorrow." If one will
stop to think he will realize that few
of the world's great advisers have
lived to enjoy the fruits of their work.
Yet such lives have been eminently
successful and most powerful, their
impact being stamped forever upon
the Lrow of an advancing civilization.
What is called success and power by
the world, the temporal product of
money or brute force or cunning, are
but ephemeral froth patches cast upon
the shore by time's ocean, unproduct-
ile of any lasting good and destined
for annihilation.

Those of us doing business todav,
tagged with all the frills and flounces
that our modern methods require, are
puzzled ts know how our fathers man-
aged to do business at all.
They had no steel nor fountain
pens. They had to take time to make
their own pens from goose quills.
They had no blotters. After writing
a letter they had to give time for the
ink to dry. Then they had no envel-
opes. They folded the letter and
used sealing wax instead. Their sta-
tionery was unprinted. They had no
printed letter heads nor note heads,
nor bill heads, and did not resort to
the monthly statement. They had no
typewriters nor stenographers. They
had no postage stamps, and paid so
many cents on a letter according to
the distance it traveled. There were
no such things as delivery wagons
nor messenger boys, and every man
lugged his purchases home. There
were no bicycles, no autos. no tele-
phones, no electric lights, no express
companies, no railroads, no daily
newspapers and very few, if any,
weekly ones.
And yet there was a happiness in
living then. more so, perhaps, than
there is today. There were no very
rich and yet no very poor. No man
felt isolated and alone because of his
poverty. Every man knew his next
door neighbor and every neighbor
was a friend.
The woods were full of game, and
fish were in abundance in every lake
and stream, and there were no laws
regulating fishing, hunting nor trap-
ping. The spinning wheel and loom
were a part of every home and every
man was more or less independent.
He lived at home. and the tariff laws
bore upon him most lightly. Under
this system there was built up a rug-
ged and robust race of people, and for
true happiness the era just before
the invention of steam anil electricity
and so many labor saving inventions
has never been excelled in any age.
though is must be admitted that it is
a wonderful thing to be surrounded
with all the comforts and luxuries our
modern civilization makes possible if

afford them. As luxurious andl rapii

Last Thursday night at Mt. Zion A.
M. E. church the banquet for the
children of the Sunday school took
place. The banquet was the idea of
the efficient superintendent. F. P.
Gadson. as a reward to the children
for attending the regular services of
the church.
The banquet was served on a table
15 feet long, which had been built for

the occasion, and was covered with
linen lab!eclotbs and laid with china
and si!vetrware. Vases of choice cur

lowers adorned the table, and' the OCALA.

whole )preentcd a beautiful scene.
About -.'> were fed. despite the fact
that drenching rain kept many f,'- ,i
attendi..ng. Among the articles served
by the teachers. who acted as waiters.
we noticed the following: Chicken.
ham sandwiches. Irish potato .elad.
salmon ailad,, six varieties of cake.
two kin,'- of ice cream. lemonade.
candies, bananas, pickles and mixed

This banquet was merely a chil-
dren's affair. and although many of
the older ones were necessarily pres-
ent. the children were the guests of
honor and received the first attention.
It is needless to say that the ban-
quet was appreciated by the little
ones. What was not expressed in
words could be read on their happy
little faces. After the benediction all
joined in praising this banquet, and
we may safely say that it will go
down as an event of many a Sunday
school boy and girl.-Metropolis.

The Journal does not pretend to be
without sin in this respect, but it has
tried to confine its censure to specific
acts of omission or commission, avoid-
ing a wholesale condemnation. It is
right and proper to give even the dev-
il his due; and how much more de-
serving of the same courtesy are the
hornless, hoofless, tailless patriots
who recently adorned the red hills of
Leon during sixty anxious, perspiring
days to pass laws pro bono public or
pro bono of some other old thing.
The legislature passed several com-
mendable acts. The members who
introduced these laws deserve praise,
the two houses that passed them de-
serve praise, and the good governor
who signed them deserves praise. The
Journal says it and means it, and
hereby tenders all concerned its heart-
felt thanks.
And it wishes now to mention par-
ticularly two acts which, along with
others already alluded to. and duly
approved, call for universal commen-
dation. The first is the law requiring
the separation of white and negro
criminals, and the separation of males
and females in the prisons of the state.
The second is the provision that the
elementary principles of agriculture
and civil government be taught in pub-
lic schools, and penalizing the county
boards of education which neglect to
carry out the law.
Both these acts are righteous, and
will tend for the moral. intellectual
and financial betterment of the state.
That the condition which necessitated
the passage of the first should have
previously existed is most horrible to
think about, and it is gratifying to

egmerate? It does a great deal more, note the advanced appreciation of
harm than good. For instance, I step-, conouics and need for political edu-

Belleview. Fla., June 18, 1909.

The most distressing information
that has come over the wires for a
long time is the story that a number
of negroes in Louisiana have died
from the effects of eating blackber-
The shock of this statement is just
about what it would be if we suddenly
discovered that the trout were begin-
ning to drown in the mountain brooks
or the cows had caught enteric f.-ver
in the sweet fields of clover.
From a period beyond the memory
of man the blackberry crop in the
southern states has been to the negro
population like manna in the wilder-
ness, while to the white people them-
selves it has been one of the most
important adjuncts of daily diet in the
good old summer time. The latter,
for the most part, were not their own
purveyors. They bought thc dusky
bucketfuls at the back door, and
served them fresh for breakfast, made
them into jam or cordial, in fifty-seven
different varieties, finding them whole-
some and delightful.
It was the country darkey to whom
they belonged as of right. Never a
land-owner in all this southland was
so hard-hearted as to maintain that he
had any vested or prescriptive rights
to the blackberry vines which wove
themselves along the rail fence, giv-
ing white promise in the spring of
rich largess when spring rounded into
summer. This succulent fruit, wild as
the crab and '-sweet as remembered
kisses," was in the category with
dogs-valuable, but not property.
It was the spontaneous usufruct
which belonged to all the people, and
most especially to the country negro.
The news that the blackberry crop
had failed would have created greater
consternation and infinitely greater
hardship than the failure of the Bar-
ings or the arrest of the tide.
The beauty of it all was that it was
a crop that never failed. It could be
relied upon with the implicit faith
we place in Johnson grass.
Nor has it failed yet; but the trag-
edy of it all is that a parasite-the
ever-present and all-devouring-has
made its appearance, and this para-
site, it seems, is poisonous.
At any rate, the Louisiana negroes
are dead, after a hearty al fresco
meal, partaken of from the vines on
the roadside.
We have scarcely caught up with
our sleep since the San Jose scale
gave us such a jolt. when the staple
crop of the south seemed threatened.

He could lie down and rise up, and
there was no one to make him afraid
of going hungry so long as the black-

suspension bridge between the two
ends of the possum season.

fruits, so free and abundant, has fal-

i There will be a report In the Advo-
cate of the district meeting at Mic-
anopy, but one special event of the
occasion deserves mention in this de-
partment. I mean the organization of
an Orange Blossom Society, which
was accomplished Sunday afternoon.
The rain prevented some from attend-
ing, but from the pleasant home
where this writer is entertained it
was encouraging to see the children
hurry along the street in the rain,
two or three under one umbrella, and
reaching the church in good time. If
more older people could be as enthu-
siastic as children, how the car of
progress would move along!
Our presiding elder gave the chil-
dren an earnest and interesting talk.
enlisting their sympathy in the great
mission work. Sister Nixon, at the
organ, helped the singing, and the
pastor took the names of the nine-
teen children who stood up to show
their desire to become "0. B's." This
co-operation was most gratifying to
the district secretary, whose heart
was set on having an 0. B. society at
Micanopy. The audience showed sym-
pathy, too. by contributing the money
for subscription to The Young Chris-
tian Worker. which takes the place
of The Little Worker, and has the
program for the 0. B's.. and also for
(the Young People's Society. The price
lis a little increased, being $1.50 in-
stead of $1 for ten copies, but the pa-
per can scarcely be dispensed with by
these societies.
I am glad to know that Sister Feas-
ter. the lady manager of the new 0.
B's.. will have such valuable help in
the great work she is undertaking for
Ithe gracious children. There will be
a cradle-roll. too. and the first place
on it is already spoken for. What a
forward movement it would be if ev-
,erv one of our churches in the Ocala
'district would have an Orange Blos-
suom Society!
The reports for the quarter ending
.1iune 1Ist did not represent more than
;half the societies of th-' district. They
.iiually report well and on time. and
ierhaips the pasi quarter will in',re
than (conipetsate for this failure.-

On May 15th we reached Auburn-
dale and the beautiful lakeside home
of those zealous Endeavorers, Mr.
and Mrs. W. C. Edmiston. Sunday
was a pleasant, though busy, day.
Then followed others more restful, in-
cluding one spent with the Presbyte-
rian pastor, Rev. Nutting, and family,
who had come from our native state,
For the remainder of the week we
were in Haines City with old friends,
once Endeavorers, but now having no
society. The village is flourishing
and a nice Methodist church has just
been dedicated.
Sunday. May 23rd. there was Sun-
day school in the Presbyterian
church at Kissimmee, followed by a
masterly address on "Vacation Relig-t
ion." in the Methodist church, of
which Rev. Mitchell is the devoted
pastor. Miss Emma Yowell, presi-
dent of the Christian church society,
entertained us for the day which en-
sued by a fine union Endeavor meet-
ing. led by Miss Emma Futch. Then
came happy days in the hospitable su-
burbanite home of Mrs. J. W. Miller.
president of Orange and Osecola dis-
trict, and superintendent of missions
for the state union. On Tuesday a
union Junior society was organized,
of which more will be said in future
news letters.
Pomona was reached on May 19th,
where an all too brief stop was made
as the guest of Miss Edith KrooK and
W. S. S. Middleton. secretary and pres-
ident of northeastern district. Car-
riage and launch rides had bIeen
planned, enjoyable evenings also,
which of course were combined with
that ever-present thought-the pro-
gress of district and state in Endeav-
or work.
Next came a brief visit at the Con-
gregational Mission School in Orange
Park. Though the school year was
ended. 'President Hurd and the sweet-
faced teaichi'rs had not yet returned

in spitt ot tile rain. there was a good-

W\e noticed that not many but our
