Declares Large Intestine Should be
Removed at an Early Age
A London special says as a result of
investigations in London hospitals,
Dr. Distaso of Paris says he has ver-

Professor Metchnikoff declared it to
be 'his conviction a couple of years
ago that the large intestine was the
breeding place of the majority of the
harmful germs in the human body,
and when this was removed, with the
majority of the germs remaining in

Secretary Wilson said:
"That is gambling. and while it can
do the country no good it cannot have
any permanent effect on food prices.
The real trouble is, that the farmer
cannot get help to raise crops."
"While the population of the Unit-
ed States has been steadily increas-
ing through the usual additions at
home and from immigration, the cul-
tivated area of the country is decreas-
ing. Thousands of acres formerly
raising products that made the food
of the country have gone back to
pasturage. The farmers simply can-
not get the men to raise the crops.

OVER THIRTY-FIVE YEARS
In 1872 there was a great deal of
diarrhoea, dysentery and cholera in-
fantum. It was at this time that
Chamlierlain's Colic, Cholera and Di-
arrhoea Remedy was first brought into
use. It proved more successful than
any other remedy or treatment, and
has for thirty-five years maintained
that record. From a small beginning
its sale and use has extended to every
part of the United States and to many
foreign countries. Nine druggists out
of ten will recommend it when their
opinion is asked, although they have
other medicines that pay them a
greater profit. It can always be de-
pended upon. even in the most se-
vere and dangerous cases. For sale

that there was

an epidemic of glan-

Johnston, proprietor of the Silver Tip-

himself as thoroughly as possible
with the process of examination, and
he is convinced that the government
officials who have the matter in
charge are entirely competent, and
are doing their duty in a thoroughly
conscientious and systematic manner,
and will quickly and completely stamp
out the disease. All the horses in the
Silver Tipped Livery stood the test,
and it is perhaps partly at least on ac-
count of the thoroughly cleanly man-
ner in which it is kept. No filth is
allowed to accumulate, and the direc-
tions of the state board of health are
followed faithfully and symtematical-

The usual Saturday afternoon
crowd of farmers and truckers had
gathered at .the country store and
postoffice. They were awaiting the
arrival of the one daily mail, a horse
route from the railroad village of
Redmond, five miles away, and dis-
cis.iing the returns they had received
?nd were expecting for beans and
(cPabages, shipped to the northern
It was nearing the middle of April.
The season had been very backward
for this part of Florida, and most of
them still had truck to ship. They
were condoling with each other, and
uniting in "cussing" the railroads and
commission men, when old man Hen-
derson walked in. He was a typical
"cracker," and as this is his story I
will try to describe him to you:
He was short and knotty, about six-
ty or sixty-five, but still quick and
spry: red-faced, red-necked and red-
eyed. His complexion, and the dirty
white of his hair and beard indicated
that he had once been red-headed, and
therefore had a right to his red skin,
even without his years of exposure to
the tropical sun and wind, but his lit-
tle red eyes had a merry twinkle that
showed he was still full of fun.
"Hello, boys!" said he. "How's
beans? You fellows gittin' rich ship-
pin' beans this year, ain't you?"
"Well, I can't say we are getting
very wealthy by the returns that's
been coming in so far, Uncle Dick,"
replied Jones, speaking for the crowd.
"Mr. Brown, here, says he got net re-
turns of eight cents a basket for some
he hippeded to New York, and the pick-
ing cost his fifteen and the baskets
ter cents each. That ain't getting
rich very fast, is it? But I guess I
ain't got no kick coming. -Mine's
panned out pretty good so far. What
are you shipping?"
"Well, now," said the old man. "You
fellows know I done quit bein' fool
enough to support the railroad and ex-
press, an' them durned Yankee c m-
mission men. Leastways, I ain't rais-
in' no more beans. A burnt child
dreads the fire, an' I sure got burnt
good on beans too long ago to tUaM
I was a "new-comer," and I, too, was
shipping a few beans, and had been
very much disappointed by the size of
the checks my commission man had
been sending. So I got the old man
over in the corner where the refriger-
ator stood and, having bought a cou-
ple of bottles of what he called "sody
pop," I asked him to tell me his exper-
ience, which he did as follows, as
near as I can remember:
"To start with, I've been down here
a long time, young man. My folks
moved from South Carolina down here
before any railroads was built in this
country. We came through in a wag.
on when I was a little chap, about
nine years old, an' I had my second
wife an' was livin' right where I am
now. long before this truckin' business
"About eight or nine years ago I
was over here one Sat'day evening' an'
heard Alderman Jackson blowin'
about how much he made on peas an'
beans. He 'lowed it beat raisin' corn
an' cotton an' pindars all hollow. Said
he done already got a hundred dollars
off of one acre of beans an' was still
shipping ; an' bragged around that he
expected to make a heap more next
"Now, old man Jackson had about
five acres of regular garden-spot land
that he had been cow-pennin' for two
or three years, an' he had a chicken-
wire fence all around it. He didn't
have no horse-just a little old plug
of a pony-an' a cranky old wagon.
But he had ten children, an' all of 'em
boys, so he didn't have to hire no help
to pick an' ship them beans.
"I had been ploddin' along, raisin'
corn an' cotton an' pindars' an' hogs,
an' a little cane for sweetenin', an'
Maria (that was the name.of the wife
I had then) an' me always had plenty
to eat, but we never had much ready
money. So old man Jackson's talk,
an' showing' around of them pretty
New York checks kinder set me to
thinking' about truckin' some myself.
bought seed an' fertilizer, an' we
planted four acres of beans. Every
night we'd talkan' plan about whale
we would do with all that money we
was goin' to make on them beans. We
was goin' to send Sary to college, an'
we was goin' to buy a bran' new bug-
gy, an' Maria 'lowed she certainly was
goin' to have the house ceiled an' an-
other chimbly built. Why, man, if
you'd a heard us talk you'd a thought
we was goin' to make a thousand' dol-
lars off of them beans, at least.
"Well, sir, I had beans up before any
of the neighbors, an' I had the pretti-
est stan' you ever saw. They was
just putting' on the first two leaves an'
looked fine, 'tell one morning' I got up
an' went out to look at 'em, an', lo an'
behol'! about ten or twelve rows, plum
across the patch, wasn't nothing' but
little stems standin' up like rows of
little green pegs, but the rest was all
growing' fine. Right down between
them rows was so many rabbit tracks
it looked like every rabbit in the
county had come to a political conven-
tion right there in my bean patch. But
even then I didn't suspicion what had
become of all them bean leaves. Of
course, I knew rabbits would eat cab-
bages, but I hadn't heard they was
fond of beans.
Next morning' there was five or six
more rows of little pegs where my
beans had been, an' I was still puz-
zlin' my head over them beans, an'
wondering' what had happened to 'em,
when Jim Smith come ridin' down the
road an'called me out to the fence. So
I told him about it, an' he says:
"'Why, it's rabbits, man. Didn't
you know you couldn't raise no beans
out here, 'less you put a wall 'round
'em, or a chicken-wire fence? Them
durned rabbits won't leave a bean in
"Oh!" says I, kinder mournful.
"Won't they come out again? Won't
they put on new leaves if I can per-
suade them rabbits to leave 'em
"'No,' says he, 'when they eats off
them two first leaves they never
amounts to nothin', an' you might as
well plow 'em up.'
"'You can bet I was hot. The first
thing that come to my mind was to
pizen 'em, so I lit out for the store.
It was Sunday, but I found Dock at
home, an' I told him I had murder in.
my heart an' was looking' for pizen. I
told him to open up the store and give
me about ten pounds of Paris green;
that the rabbits was eatin' up all my
beans, an' I was goin' to put it all over
'em, for I thought that would get 'em
sure. But Dock, he said anything I
put on my beans strong enough to
kill the rabbits would kill the beans,
too. So, finally, I had to compromise
by taking a pound of white tasteless
arsenic. I knew how they loved sweet
potatoes, an' I 'lqwed a few good slic-
ed potatoes, nicely coated'with the ar-
senic, would do the work, an' Dock
said he thought so, too.
"When I passed Brown's house on
my way back home, I stopped an' told
him about it, an' asked him if they
was eatin' of his any, for he had about
"'No,' he said, 'they ain't botherin'
me none yet, an' my boys is ketchin'
'em in traps baited with sweet pota-
toes. I think you'll get 'em with that
arsenic; but be keerful with it. Pizen
is a bad thing to fool with.'
"When I got home Alaria cut up a
lot of potatoes in nice slices, an' put
a good coatin' of arsenic all over 'em,
an' that evening' I strowed 'em all
'round that patch of beans. When I
went to bed that night I 'lowed to my-
self that I had Mr. Rabbit fixed: but
next morning' I couldn't find nary a
dead rabbit nor nary piece of potato
even nibbled at. Them wise old rab-
bits had took a sudden spite against
potatoes, an' a few more rows of pegs
without any leaves ,n 'em stood
where the beans was the day before.
So I concluded the rabbits knew the
potatoes was pizened. an' I made me
a lot of dead-falls an' baited 'em up
nice without n' pizen on the bait.
Nevt morning' all my dead-falls was
still standing but I found one cead
rabbit 'way off by the fence, an' some
jeO can pick up a basket full of heads
"He was a rank stranger to me, but
I had got so plum desperate I was
ready to try 'most anything. So 1
pitched out for the store and bought
the -nuff. While I was over there
Janes's boy come in an' heard me
tellin' 'bout them infernal rabbits, an'
'Mr. Henderson, I heard a man tell
pa all you had to do was to tie a white
cotton string all 'round the patch, an'
nary a rabbit would cross it.'
"I thanked him, an' thought to my-
self I'd try that, too, if the snuff fail-
ed, but I was setting' great store by it,
for I had tiok a sniff of it to see if it
was good an' strong, an' the way it
set me to sneezin' made the water
run out of my eyes, an' I had to hold
my head with both hands to keep it
"Well, sir, I put it on good an' thick,
' an' I got up 'fore day next morning ,
got my big bushel basket, an' told Ma-
, ria I was goin' out to pick up them
rabbit heads. Nary a head, but them
t rabbits had held a indignation meet-
* in' right in the middle of the patch,
I an 'a whole lot more beans was bare
as telegraph poles.
"Then I tried that white cotton
string business. Maria she tore up
. three or four old sheets, an' made me
about a mile of string you could see
the darkest night that ever come. I
F put up stakes 'round that patch of
beans an' stretched the string about
four or five inches from the ground,
but next morning' I found them old rab-
bits had gnawed that string in two in
more'n a dozen places, chewed up a
few more beans, an' from the looks
of the tracks had give a ball an' invit-
ed all their cousins and the children.
I tied up the broken ends, for I hated
to give up all hope of savin' them
beans. Besides, Jones's boy said the
man that told his pa had tried it, an'
swore it was so. So I determined to
give it another trial.
"Over to the store that evening' I
was tellin' Dock about all my failures
to get rid of the rabbits, an' he lowed:
"'Why don't you set up a scare-
crow? Maybe that'll keep 'em out. It
it fails, lay for 'em with your gun.'
"'How in Halifax am I going' to see
how to shoot them rabbitsat night?
I guess you got sense enough to know
they don't prowl 'round that bean
patch in the daytime, ain't you?' I
"'Oh, get you a bull's-eye lantern,'
says he, 'an' shine their eyes. You
can see 'em all right then!'
"'Got any bull's-eye lanterns In
your store?' says L
"'No,' says he. 'But we got lots of
common ones, an' I guess they'll do
just as welL'
"So I bought one an' took it with
me, an' when I got home I cleaneA up
my old gun, an' got Maria to make me
a scarecrow. She made him an' put
one of my best white shirts on him,
an' I stood him up in the middle of
the patch. Then, thinking' a noise
would help scare 'em off, I tied the
dinner bell to his shirt tall, so it
would swing and ring with the breeze,
an' kinder keep him company.
"All night long, off an' on, I could
hear that bell giving' out a lonesome
little tinkle, an' I had great hopes It
was scarein' 'em off. But next morn-
in' the string was busted ag'In to
in twenty places, an' my bean patch
looked like a cyclone had struck It
Old Brother Rabbit an' all his sisters
had mistook that bell for a church
bell, an' my scarecrow for the preach-
er. The ground looked like they had
been holding' a Methodis' camp meet-
in" an' a Baptis' revival both togeth- ,
"Well, sir, I was so mad I pulled up
all my stakes an' roned up my string,
concludib' I would try shot an' pow-
der, as none of them hoodoos badnt
worked, but I left that old scarecrow
still a-wavin' my shirt tall kinder
mournful in the early morning' breeze,
an' the bell sorter tollin' lonesome
like over them naked looking' stalks.
"That night I got out my gun, lit
my lantern, an' went out to stan'
guard over them beans.
It was that
lonesome an' quiet, it reminded me of
war-times when I was doin' picket
duty with Johnston in Georgy. I pa-
raded tip an' down an' 'round that
patch as quiet as a mouse, but nary
a rabbit showed up. *

and all that It embodies.
"The Americans know that the Cu-

if that unfortunate and unavoidable
moment should arrive when they must

they by the side of the American
flag, defend those principles, ideals

FLIES AND MOSQUITOES VS. RAB-
IES AND GLANDERS
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Isn't it remarkable what a people
of frenzy we are? We have frenzied
finance and frenzied reform, and
sometimes we have frenzied slaugh-
It may happen that there are five
or six dogs with rabies in the space
of two or three years in a town, and
possibly one human death resultant
therefrom, but that is sufficient to
maintain a wholesale and indiscrim-
mate slaughter of dogs. Of course,
no right thinking person would f-.r an
instant object to keeping dogs muz-
zled or confined, but apart from the
glory it would be just as effectual to
kill measly, roaming curs on the out-
skirts of town, as to shoot many
times in the midst of an admiring
crowd a carefully guarded and much
valued dog that has possibly escaped
that once from his home. His owner
might he notified with very little trou-
ble, and the dog gladly and gratefully
placed under additional restriction.
However, we are not presuming to
say this method of guarding the pub-
lic weal is not necessary. It doubt-
less is, but at the same time, it the
same town, why is the same officer so
blind to other infringements of the
law? It doesn't hurt his feelings to
see iten spitting all over the side-
walks, and he doesn't even mind add-
ing his own contribution to the collec-
tion, knowing that in many cases it
is spreading deadly disease germs, to
say nothing of filth. He can stand by
and with clear-conscience see all scrts
of fruit parings and refuse thrown on
the sidewalk and street, attracting
swarms of disease laden flies, that
will next go to the marketable, but
unscreened, frnit, and infect it thor-
oughly, thereby spreading typhoid fe-
ver, tuberculosis and other diseases.
The officer does not see the flies nor
the unprotected fruit, though there
are laws in plenty to govern such, but
woe unto a dog should he appear.
The state board of health publishes
a poster, graphically illustrated, and
with these facts, concerning files:
Flies breed in horse manure, cow
dung, decaying vegetables, garbage of
all descriptions, dead animals and hu-
Remember that when and where ab-
solute cleanliness prevails there are
Look daily after the garbage cans.
See that they are carefully sprinkled
with lime or kerosene oil and effect-
Do the same thing to manure heaps,
and remove all manure from stables
every three or four days, and when
removed, cover with lime and sand.
Look carefully after the cuspidors.
They require constant attention. This
is particularly true in hotels, boarding
houses, station houses, railroad- sta-
tions, and, in fact, wherever people
congregate in large numbers.
Flies are fond of feasting on tuber-
culosis sputum, and haver around
cuspidors. The specks )f files con-
tain live tubercle bacilli after they
have eaten tuberculosis sputum, show-
Mln that the hacilli will nsaa th an,,..

fruitful source of human infection.,
particularly If a ease of typhoid fever
nearby is being carelessly handled.
Don't forget that flies will carry the
bacilli of typhoid fever from the stools
of the patient (if left exposed and not
disinfected), if given an opportunity,
to the food In the kitchen and dining
room. This is no conjecture, for the
Spanish-American war proved this
In sptte of these and oft repeated
warnings, stables are kept uninspect-
ed, and in a horribly unsanitary con-
dition, breeding millions of flies, but
if a horse that has had glanders in
the worst form for years, undes the
'care of several veterinarians, is sud-
denly brought to public notice, what
a furore! State officers and govern-
ment inspectors are at once on the
ground, and a wholesale slaughter
must needs follow; when, if the corn-
man sanitary laws had been enforced,
regular inspection insisted upon, the
disease might have been stamped out
in its incipiency, with very little loss
of property. This has been proven by
one livery company in our midst that
has made a specialty of cleanliness
and'fresh air. It has been rewarded
in that every horse stood the test and
was pronounced sound.
When, through neglect, every other
horse in the county has contracted
glanders then and then only do peo-
ple become so animated.
Just as .true is it necessary for a
yellow fever epidemic to rage that
any interest may be manifested or the
common laws enforced to stamp out
Since the recent rains a general
complaint has gone from all parts of
town against the alarming multiplica-
tions of this dangerous and pestifer-
ous insect. Yet the street committees
and sanitary inspectors refuse to re-
cognize that the badly drained streets
and open sewers are the principal
sources of supply, and nothing has
been heard of cutting weeds or sprink-
ling lime or copperas or putting ker-
osene on standing water where it can
not be drained. Yet this is ordered
and insisted on by the state board of
health. But we are waiting for an
epidemic to make cleaning up inter-
Mosquitoes are everywhere recog-
nized as the chief, if not the only, dis-
seminators of the dread enemy of
tropical countries-malaria,-and it
is possible to put them down. It has
been done and is being done in many
places. But it takes rigid enforcement
of laws and systematic co-operation of
the citizens; but wouldn't it be a
whole lot better to lock the stable be-
fore the horse is stolen?
We verily believe that if a trench
one hundred feet long and corres-
pondingly wide and deep should be
dug, and attended by a brass band
and prominent citizens, the garbage
and filth and weeds and refuse of our
city be hurled therein by officers In
uniform, with imposing badges, or If
the festive fly or miserable mosquito
could be shot with many bullets in
front of the court house, striking awe
and consternation unto the inevita-
ble small boy and street loafer; in
other words, if there were more pomp
and ceremony and sounding of trum-
pets and panoply of war attendant
upon the things that are constantly
with us-a menace to life and corn-
fort-we verily believe our zealous
guardians of public welfare might be
induced to consider it seriously.

THE NEW DEAN AT ROLLINS.
Rev. P. T. Clayton of Williamstown,
Mass., will be professor of English
and instructor of philosophy the com-
ing year; he will also act as dean.
Mr. Clayton has for several years
held an important pastorate in Wil-
llamstown, the seat of Williams Col-
lege, one of the leading institutions
of the country, at whose head is a son
of president Jas. A. Garfield, and his
relations with the college faculty and
students have been close and inti-
mate. He has also had an official and
influential connection with the public
schools of the town.
Mr. Clayton is himself a graduate
of New York University, which also
conferred on him the degree of master
of arts, in course, and of Union The-
ological Seminary in New York. He
is a gentleman of charming personal-
ity, of extensive experience with
young men and boys, sympathetic, yet
strong, and it is believed that his in-
fluence as dean will be excellent.
Deaa Terry of Williams College says
of Mr. Clayton: "He is particularly
fond of work with young people, and
seems to me to have the serious qual-
ities which would make him efficient
in the relations with the disciplinary
officers of the college, is able to main-
tain with the young people under his
charge. Tact, firmness, sympathy
and common sense appear to bt
among the many good qualities of
which he retains possession."
Mr. John H. Denison, Mr. Clayton's
predecessor in the Williamstown pas-
torate, says of him: "His keynote to
sympathy, his faith in love, his doc-
trine is to get at men, his Christ is
the man who went about doing good,
his patience is beyond the ordinary.'
If there is anywhere a college of
young people, who want to learn, I
should say that M r. Clayton would
be the ideal man for that place."
Ex-President Franklin Carter of
Williams College writes appreciative-
ly of Mr. Clayton's "teaching ability.
of his accuracy and vision, of his
sense of justice and his lofty ideals,
of his tact, firmness and sympathy,"
and Prof. Wild, of the Latin depart-
ment of the college says: "Mr. Clay-
ton has the true teacher's instinct, he
has a great capacity for the personal
leading of youth, moreover he shows
much skill in adapting himself to the
problems of individual lives in such a
way as to exact loyalty to the high.-
est standards, without creating antag-

EXCURSIONISTS MEET WITH i
Five Cars Are Derailed Near Kendrick
and Four Turn Over-Passengers
Badly Frightened but No One
Gainesville came down in numbers
to witness the ball game Tuesday. Be-
sides the three colored coaches (there
was also a colored ball game on)
there were five coaches occupied by
white passengers. After the train
passed Kendrick only a short distance
from Ocala, a switch at one of the'
spurs twisted, after the locomotive
and several cars had passed safely
over it, causing five of the passenger
coaches to leave the main track, and
four of them turned completely over,
but strange to say none of the passen-
gers were seriously injured. The es-
cape was almost miraculous. Fortu-
nately the train had just left the sta-
tion at Kendrick and had not gotten
under full headway, and was in a bot-
tom, instead of on an embankment.
Many ladies and children were on
board and the perilous position in
which they found themselves caused'
some of them to give way to their
feelings and for several minutes the
worst fears were excited, and every-
one's nerves were at high tension.
Soon all fears were allayed, and al-
most everyone escaped uninjured,,
either through the doors or windows.

were not so fortunate, and some of
them were only slightly Injured andt

good~an article of tobacco as can be
grown on any soil.
The Marion Farms have ten aeres
under shade, and it' is now fully ma-
tured and Is being housed, and tois pro-
nounced by experts to be as fine as
the Sumatra leaf itself, and the yield
is even and abundant The soil is
particularly adapted for it-it seems
to contain every constituent element.
On the ten acres a yield of nine
thousand pounds is estimated.
The curing is being done under the
direction of an expert, and if all signs
do not fall this crop of tobacco ought
to he worth more than the disavery
of phosphate, more than turpentine
farms, yea, more than a gold mine
would be to our county, because we
have such a large number of acres
that can be devoted to its cultivation,
and so many can engage in it.
Mr. 8. A. Bawls, the projector of
this enterprise, and Mr. J. R. Hewett,
the manager of the Farms, cannot be
extolled too highly for the planting of
this crop, and the admirable manner
in which they have brought it to per-
Mr. Z. C. Chambliss of the bank

Thursday taking views of the tobacco
as it appears growing under the shed
prepared for it and in the barns, two
of which have -been specially con-
structed in which the leaves are un-
dergoing the process of curing.
The result of this experimental crop
will be watched with interest, as it
means so much to the future prosper-
ity of Marion county.
We are indebted for our visit to the
Farms to Dr. S. H. Blltch, the faithful
state prison physician.
The Marion Farms are- the head-
quarters for the state prison hospital,
and the sick, disabled, decrepit and
aged prisoners are sent there for
treatment, and those that are able are
made to work in the fields, and are
now working in the tobacco sheds and
In the building in which the work
was going on Mr. Hewett said there
were all sorts of criminals-murder-

WHAT IF OTHER THINGS
One of the most distinguished
statesmen of England some years ago
contributed an article to one of the
magazines, in which he drew an imag-
inary picture of what would have
been the history of England and
America if the demands of the colo-
nies had not been rejected and the re-
volt of 1776 had been avoided.
This distinguished statesman went
on to say that the seat of the British
empire, perhaps, would have been
transferred to the Western World,
and the parliament of England and
not the congress of the United States
would have been holding its sessions
We have sometimes wondered what
would have been the historical story
if the federal convention, which con-
vened in the city of Philadelphia on
Friday, May 25, 1787, professedly for
the purpose of reforming the articles
of confederation, but as it turned out,
framing a new constitution, had fail-
ed and the same had been rejected?
The proceedings of that convention
were not at all harmonious, and it
sat from May 25 until September 17,
and after its adjournment it was a
long time before the constitution it
framed received the sanction of the
necessary two-thirds vote of the
Telling of the animosities engender-
ed by the slavery discussion in said
convention, Mr. Luther Martin, a
member of the convention from Mary-
land, in an address before the legis-
lature of his state, said:
"I believe near a fortnight, perhaps
more, was spent in the discussion of
this business (the representation bas-
ed on slavery), during which we were
on the verge of dissolution, scarce
held together by a hair, though the
public papers were announcing ouf
At that time Virginia had a larger
population and a greater numebr of
manufacturing industries than any
state of the then confederation, and
if the constitution had been rejected
by her, and the other southern states
had clustered around her, what, today,
would have been the story recorded
in the annals of history?
Patrick Henry, George Mason, and
many others of the most popular
statesmen of Virginia and other south-
ern states, bitterly opposed the adop-
tion of the constitution because they
foresaw, in the then agitation of slav-
ery, what it would bring about.
The value of a slave at that time
was fixed at a hogshead of tobacco,
and this plant was then cultivated
solely in the south, and the cultiva-
tion of cotton followed quickly in its
If the southern states had formed a
confederation to themselves its ex-
ports would have been made from its
own ports and it would have estab-
lished its own manufactories. How
different would have been the story

which 'there shall be no peace to him

man's hand against his neighbor. Our
belief is that the warfare between

of tealy small importance when sift-
ed down, but which caught the votes
nevrthelesa. When these hobby rid-
ers got to Tallahassee they began a
scramble to secure the enactment of
their particular little bills and lost
sight of pretty much all else. There
can be'no doubt that the well-rounded
man with some idea of state and
county government and familiarity
with the agricultural and business in-
terests of his county and state makes
a more useful member of the legisla-
ture than the man with some scheme
for curing all our troubles. We are
never going to get away from trouble
this side of the liver Jordan, and the
best our legislature can do for us is
to pass laws that are fair to all class-
es and that meet the needs of a rap-
idly developing state. To accomplish
such legislation it is necessary to send
to the legislature fair-minded men
with some breadth of information. Lit-
tle need be expected of the candidate
for the legislature who has nothing
better to commend him than some lit-
tle "vote-catcher" bill. The measures
proposed and advocated by this class
of legislators are usually so far-fetch-
ed or impracticable that a majority
of the members cannot be induced to
vote for them and they fail of passage,
thus leaving their advocates with a
record of nothing accomplished.-
A NEW WAY TO WAGE WAR
Take this matter of war and of pre-
paration for war. We who believe
that it will be ere long regarded as
the most extraordinary delusion of
history, we who have faith to believe
that if at this moment the president
and the congress of the United States
and all the newspapers and all the
ministers and all those who profess
to follow the Prince of Peace-that is
to say, all the Christians and all the
women, the mothers and sisters of
men-should unanimously declare
that from this time forth not another
dollar should be spent for warships,
that all the forts should be dismantled
and turned into public parks, that the
billions which it had been intended to
put into smokeless powder and costly
cannon and quickly perishing cruis-
ers, shall be released and used for the
benefit of the world, how long would
it be before there would be such a
clamor from the army-ridden nations
of Europe to follow the beneficent ex-
ample that the blind leaders of the
blind would have to heed it. What
an effect it would have on China,
which has lived through centuries
with no army, and which is certainly
taking a step backwards when under
the leadership of German officers it is
desperately trying to come into line
with the beligerent nations!
Suppose an invasion should threat-
en us? Suppose the women of the
country, the girls and the young ma-
trons, should put on white dresses and
'with waving white flags of peace, go
to meet the hostile army and say,
"Come and feast with us, come and
dance with us, come, we offer you a
festival of Joy? After you have eat-
en with us and tasted the fruits of our
land, then we will settle this petty
question which is only a misunder-
standing!" This is not utopian. This
is only common sense.
Let us cease, then, building war-
ships! Why should not we-the t,reat
country of the Pilgrims-be the first
to set the example of disarming? We
don't want warships. They are waste-
ful, costly and inartistic baubles.
Spend the money on continent-cross-
ing roads. Pat an end to this clamor
for work on the part of the unemploy-
ed. Endow universities, schools, mu-
seums; build magnificent public edi-
fices; educate the people in humanity
and art and science. They are hun-
gry for it. How many men have grad-
uated from Harvard and Yale and
Princeton and Cornell and all the oth-
er universities? And yet the year's ex-
penditures on our big navy swallows
up the endowments of all our univer-
sities! Think of it!
It is a simple matter to utter a pro-
phecy, and yet how heartbreaking it
is! The fruit must not be eaten until l
it .s ripe. The child cannot do the
tasks of a man. It takes years, per-
haps centuries, to educate a nation.
But the time tu coming when our chil-
dren will say: How blind were our
fathers to believe in war and the ne-
cessity of war!-Nathan Haskell Dole,

Sunning Dairy yessels
If the vessels are cleaned as direct-
ed., and sterilized by boiling, there is
no need to sun them. But half-clean-
ed, greasy vessels breed bacteria in
the dirt, and their condition can be Im-
proved somewhat by sunning them.
Sunlight destroys many of the organ-
isms which causm the souring of milk.
An exposure of an hour and a halt
each day would not be too much. A
room with a southern aspect is best
for this, it it has a large double win-
dow, admitting plenty of sunlight. It
is not uncommon to see the dairy
utensils set out on the wood pile to
sun. This method is usually worse
than no sunning at all, as the vessels
catch dust laden with germs. The
vessels are sometimes turned upside
down while sunninig. When placed
thus little benefit is derived, as it is
Ithe inside of the vessels that needs
the sunlight, and not the outside.-

tural Experiment Station. 0

It is not pleasant to expose the be-
trayal of the common people of the
south by their democratic senators,
but it is a duty, and we must not
Hides ought to be on the free list.
Not one farmer in a thousand has any
to sell, ana everybody has them to
buy. The very man who has a hide
to sell and who would therefore get a
few cents more for it if a tariff duty
is placed on it, will have to buy more
than one hide during the year in the
purchase of the shoes, belts, saddles,
harnesms, etc., which are made out of
hides and whose cost will be increas-
ed by the tax on hides.
Who will get the lion's share of the
benefit of the tax on hides? The meat
packers of Chicago, Kansas City and
St. Louis. These combined capital-
ists are usually referred to as the beef
trust, and they are the main buyers
of the cattle that furnish the hides.
They control the market in buying
beeves and in selling meats. They
will not give the cattle breeder a
dime more for his steer because of the
hide duty. They buy the animal by
weight, and the duty on hides will
not make the cow weigh a pound
Therefore, when we shut out the
bides of Central and South America
by a tariff duty, we simply give addi-
tional profits to the beef trust, and it
will come out of us when we buy our
shoes, harness, etc.
The southern democratic senators
who went over to the republicans on
this issue are Bailey and Culberson
of Texas, Fletcher and Tallaterro of
Florida. Smith of Maryland and Stone
of Missouri.-Watson's Jeffersonian.

On acocmt of the delay ImeMdmt to
the tratfer of passenger, mall and
baggage at the wreck a few mles
north of Ocala, the local baseball
team arranged to convey the GaInes-
vIlle baseball boys from the scene of
the disaster to Ocala in *utomobiles.
A number of can were in waiting at
the wreck when the train arrived, and
quickly conveyed the visiting athletes
to the Ninth street park.
The crowd at the grounds 'les-
day afternoon has been estimated at
a thousand to twelve hundred persons.
Gainesville had more than four hun-
dred rooters in the crowd, and it was
mostly Gainesville's noise that was
heard. Decorated carriages and auto-
mobiles, some of the latter from
Gainesville, nearly encircled the lot,
and the right and left field foul lines
were occupied by spectators all the
way to the fence.
It was Gainesville's game from the
start. The visitors hit the ball hard-
er and more timely, ran bases with
more judgment, and their signal and
scientific work was par excellence.

They also failed to make any errors.
Manager Davis and Captain Graham
are to be congratulated on their se-
lection of players and the general
work of their team.
Comparinng the work of both teams,
the locals were clearly outclassed in
yesterday's game. With practically
the same teams contesting, the Ocala
team won from Gainesville on the lat-
ter's diamond three weeks ago by the
score of seven to four. The locals
should study Gainesville's excellent
code of signals. The home boys were
caught off the bases several times
during yesterday's game. The glory
is not all Gainesville's though, for
)Harry Bullock, an Ocala production,
contributed a very full share of the
work that brought thbm the victory.
With Gainesville at the bat in the
first inning, Miller, Allen adn Graham
were retired on flies to Galloway, Har-
ris and Dodge, W. For Ocala Dick
Dodge was bit by pitcher, but was
caught trying to purloin second. Har-
ris out, short to first, and Donaldson
In the second inning Bullock singled
to left, was advanced to third on Hen-
drick's two-bagger to right field. Den-
ton bunted to Brown, who threw home
to catch Bullock, but after the dust
cleared sufficiently it was seen that
McCormick had dropped the ball, and
Bullock was safe. Taylor hit safely
to right, and Hendricks scored. Den-
ton also tried to score on the hit but
was out at the plate. Watson sacri-
ficed Taylor to third and Hines fan-
ned. Two runs. For Ocala, McCor-
mick singled to left and stole second,
but was immediately caught off the
Gainesville tallied again in the
fourth inning. Bullock out, second to
first. Hendricks was safe at first on
an error, took the second station on
a blocked ball, and third on Denton's
sacrifice, and scored on Taylor's long
double to center.
In the seventh Gainesville added
another. Denton singled to left field,
was sacrificed to second by Taylor,
and crossed the rubber on Watson's
two-base bit to deep left.
The ninth inning was productive of
still another tally for Gainesville.
Hendricks out, Brown to Gore. Denton
reached first on another safety to
right. Taylor was safe at first on an
error. Watson hit to Dick Dodge, who
put Denton out at third. Hines landed
at first on an error by the third base-
man, while Taylor crossed the plate,
after which Watson was caught at
Ocala could do nothing in the ninth.
During the game McCormick and
Gore got as far as second, but not an
Ocala man passed second base.

The above is the score by which
the boys from the Ancient City won
Wednesday's baseball game. On ac-
count of threatening rain the crowd
was not up to the average attendance.
However, the game was quite excit-
ing, even though the locals did not
win. A much better game was ex-
Harris was hurt in a collision with
Dyson at first base, and was hardly
in condition to pitch after the acci-
dent. He stuck to his post and the
St. Augustine team scored one in the
fourth and three in the fifth inning,
when he retired in favor of Donald-
son. Donaldson went in like a whirl-
wind and fanned eight batters in four
Ocala tallied one run in the third
after Harris collision, on a sacrifice
and a single by Donaldson. The lo-
cals got two more runs in the seventh
inning on two hits, an error, a field-
er's choice, a hit batter and an infield

We are frequently asked for direc-
tions for making sponge cake that will
not be dry and crumbly. Good quality
of cake does not depend entirely on
the proportions of ingredients, but
very largely on the way those ingredi-
ents are put together. Much of this can
only be learned by observation and
practical experience. Not every
housewife, even though she be an ex-
cellent cook otherwise, can success-
fully make cake. Here are some sug.
gestions which will aid the beginner,
and they are but a small part of what
one should know in regard to cake
making and baking: Sponge cakes
depend for lightness upon the amount
of air which is beaten into the mix-
ture before baking. The following,
though often varied with good results,
provided a large amount of air is en-
tangled in the batter is a safe rule:
Never stir a sponge batter, as the air
already entangled is allowed to es-
cape; beating, cutting and folding
are the correct strokes. Separate the
eggs and beat the yolks until very
thick and lemon-colored, and beat
the whites until they are stiff and
dry. Add the sugar to the yolks and
beat again, then add the flavoring.
Beat in the whites of the eggs, flour
sifted with salt, and finally cut and
fold. For this stroke use a case
knife, adding the flour gradually and
cutting it in. Never stir it. Three
eggs, one-half cupful of sugar, one-
half cupful of flour, a pinch of salt,
one tablespoonful of lemon Juice and
grated yellow rind from one-half a

The August Everybody's presents
another of those remarkable scientific
articles by Dr. William Hanna Thom-
son, which in book form have placed
him among the popular novelists as
a "best seller." This time Dr. Thom-
son talks of "Indispensable Bacteria"
and tells of the bottle of germs that
can be ordered by mail, and will do
the work of wagon-loads of old fash-
ioned fertilizer. This article teems
with startling truths, and is so simply
written that to understand it requires
no previous scientific experience. Wil-
liam Hard dissects the "High School
Fraternity" and resolves it into an ab-
surdity. Franklin Clarkin gives some
fascinating stories of great diamonds,
and their vicissitudes, and incidental-
ly destroys some of the legends sur-
rnunding Mrs. Waldorf Astor's famous
Jewel. John L. Mathews in "Hand-
Made Forests" shows how several Eu-
ropean countries have turned disas-
ters of deforestation into triumphs of
scientific forestrty that pay large in-
comes into national treasuries. And
along with a series of fascinating pic-
tures Isaac Taylor Headland shows
how children of the Orient play, and
how wonderfully like their games are
to our own.
In fiction Lloyd Osborne heads the
list with the unusual and amusing
love story of an unconventional Amer-
ican girl in Paris; Henry is extreme-
ly 0. Henrylsh in "A Poor Rule;'
Grace McGowan Cooke, in "The Wis-
dom of Yesterday," pictures the dis-
tress of an old darkey when he is re-
fused communion in the church of his
former master, and she does it with-
out in the least offending southern
, susceptibilities; Fannie Heaslip Lea,
in "The Uncertain Age" presents an
amusing yet thoughtful picture of how
old middle-aged femininity is in the
country, and how young it is in the
city; and Maximilian Foster's "Red
Block" adds the finishing touch to a
number unusually supplied with hu-
mor of a wholesale character.

what he said concerning the tariff:
"Delays are said to be dangerous,
and never was the maxim more true
than in the present case, a case of
monopoly. If we take from one side
a large portion of the proceeds of la-
bor, and give it to the other, the side
from which we take must constantly
decay, and that to wihcb we give must
prosper and increase. Such is the ac-

acts from the south a large portion of
the proceeds of its industry, which it
bestows upon the other sections, in
the shape of bounties to manufactur-

PAPER FROM COTTON STALKS
A new industry is being established
at Cordele, Ga., that is of interest far
beyond the limits of .that little city.
A plant is being erected there to
make paper from cotton stalks. Am-
ple capital has been secured, and ex-
perimental tests have demonstrated to
the entire satisfaction of the stock-
holders that good. marketable paper
can be manufactured from this here-
tofore waste material.
If this venture proves a success, as
there is. is every reason to believe it
will, the problem of the fast disappear-
ing wood pulp will be solved by this
practically inexhaustible supply of pa-
per-making material, and it will help
to still further enrich the entire cot-
The experiment will be watched by
alert eyes, and as soon as time proves
that the finished product of the Cor-
dele plant is what the market requires
capital will flock into the cotton gr ow-
ing states and paper-making plants
will be erected at other places.
We have not yet been told whether
a white print paper suitable for news-
paper use can be made from the cot-
ton stalk fiber, but if it can, the rap-
idly increasing circulation of south-
ern newspapers would easily consume
all of the output of the Cordele plant
and several others for some years to
Anyway, it is a new industry which
should be encouraged and the newspa-
pers of the south will watch its pro-
gress and give results to the world,
so, if it be good, capital may come in
and help to develop it.-Times-Union.
The following write-up of Mayo ap-
peared in a recent issue of the Wash-
ington (D. C.) Herald, which will be
perused with interest by Floridians:
"Mayo calls itself the biggest little
town in Florida, a claim that is justi-
fied by its progressive spirit. With a
population of a little over 400 in 1905,
it now has 1000. But a cross-road in
the piney woods of LaFayette county
a few years ago, it is now a town with
electric lights, ice plant, water works,
paved streets, an up-to-date telephone
exchange, a stone court house, an ar-
tificial stone high school building that
,would do credit to a city, bathing
pools and a park in the heart of the
"The town is surrounded by excel-
lent long staple cotton land, is with-
in two miles of one of the largest
electric sawmills in the United States,
is near several turpentine stills, and
is the home of stock raisers whose cat-
tle range the woods of LaFayette
county summer and winter, with no
feed except enough to keep them gen-
"Truck growing here is in its in-
fancy, but our piney woods and tam-
mock lands will porduce anything
craved by the appetites of man or
beast. We need more people, and the
Mayo board of trade will tell you all
about the county if you will only drop
it a card."

THE SHIPS THAT-
Last year a thousand ships or more
were lost; the year before the sea
took nearly the same toll. To the
tourist his assurance of safety lies in
the fact that it is the sailing vessel,
with its dependence on the fickle
wind, that largely makes up the tre-
Freighting steamers, voyaging on
unfamiliar coasts, nearly complete
the disaster roll: but to the great lin-
ers, with their familiar routes, their
well known lanes of travel, their
guarded and well lighted harbors, and
all their appliances for safety, the
manifold dangers of the ocean are on-
ly the remote possibilities that give a
touch of adventure to their passage
from land to land. According to a
writer in the Century, the probabili-
ties of disaster are trifling.
Every morning brings us some sto-
ry of death or accident on land, while
the great passenger ships come and
go in monotonous regularity, bringing
no reports more stirring than those
of high seas that have kept them from
making new records. With the pres-
ent madness for speed and its attend-
ant recklessness, our streets demand
constant alertness if you would cross
them In safety.
Speed at sea has come through
larger and more stoutly constructed
ships. So the familiar old story of
the sailor man at sea in a storm who,
serene in his consciousness of ample
sea room, -piously ejaculated: "God
help the poor folks ashore tonight!"
is not wholly fentastle
THE F. U. A. IN HIGH FEATHER

Mr. Gottlieb and the F. U. A. are to be
congratulated-Mr. Gottlieb because
the appointment is not only one of
great responsibility, but of high hon-
or, and the F. U. A. because no better
selection could have been made.
Mr. Gottlieb is eminently qualified
to fill the position; and under his di-
rection this splendid fraternal organi-
zation is sure to make its influence
for good felt in Florida.
THE PESTIFEROUS FLY
The house fly, the dirty fly, the ty-
phoid and cholera infantum fly, will
house fly. It is a nuisance. It must
be exterminated. It can be driven
out of every city. In an age of knowl-
edge, screens and cheap disinfectants,
there is no excuse for flies in any
household. Clean up your premises
and report to the health department
your neighbor who does not. Get rid
of the breeding places of flies and you
will get rid of the flies.-Dr. Geo. E.
