Not only is this set out ri 'the new
law, but that great statute further
specifically authorizes the federal re-
serve bank in each district to redis-
count such agricultural paper when
within not exceeding six months of
maturity, whereas other commercial
paper is rediscountable only within
three months or less of maturity.
Congress made this special conces-
sion to- agriculture, because it fully
realized that the a-verage farmer re-
quired more time to "turn" himself
financially than the average business
man or manufacturer.
Not only that, but the federal re-
serve act provides that should the re-
serve bank in any district be called
upon to rediscount more prime paper
than it can legitimately handle, the
federal reserve board may require the
reserve bank in some other district
co help it out.
Of course, it will be some time yet
before the federal reserve banks can
be in operation. It is gravely to be
regretted that the new system was
not in effect July 1, as it might have
oeen, had the senate finance commit-
cee promptly confirmed the federal re-
,erve board instead of delaying that
imnpoftant preliminary law until away
mto August. Senator Bristow, of
Lansas, who has just been defeated
for renomination at the primaries in
Lhat state, is largely responsible for
:his delay, which ,is costing his state
and the whole country very dear.
? One Way Out.
There Is also unanimous approval of
Southern' Farming's recommendation
that cotton mills run day and night
ot increase their ,consumption of cot-
bon in the manufacture; of a surplus
,f'finished goods to, supply the foreign
markets, that are now clamoring so
loudly for goods which they can no
.onger ge nfrom Engfand and Europe.
Mills afe disposed to adopt this
,dan, provided it can be financed until
.he surpla goods thus manufactured
are converted into cash or its equiv-
alent is- received back from the for-
ign nMarket. Bht the mills hesitate
to assume the danger of having. no
.;hips, or of insurance in transit, or of'
, .o)cti-mfs it and rcafuttince he foreign market. The restoration
in foreign exchanges is helping out
:his particular phase of the problem.
'he main question for Vhe mills is
:ow they can carry the extra financiial
)urden during the three,or six months
oefpre they, collect the cash for these
.surplus goods. '
It is only fair t6 s'ay- that, even
the strongest cotton manufacturing
cori-porations, those with ethe largest
financial resources, now find "them-
selves placed at a serious 'disadvant-
age in their regular trade, ta say
nothing of manufacturing an extraor-
,linarv surplus,.or export in addition
Lo their usuafrin of business. These
mills are heavy, borrowers at the
aanks on the collatral of raw cotton in
warehouses, in transit pr at mill, or
upon the security of their manufac-
-ured goods. While the banks are
disposed to do all they can to take
care of these regular customers, bank-
ars realize that there is some uncer-
,tairity about cotton values, and the
date at which cotton mills will be able
to liquidate. 'Hence bankers are
i'orced to a prudent and cautious pol-
icy in the interest of their depositors.

at home and abroad are still cluoscd
because of the war. Shipments of both
raw cotton and manufactured goods to
foreign countries are still delayed. ,
Here and there a little- cotton is
moving from old stocks directly to the

S that (luring the 10 .days ended iast

General Agreement.
In all this discussion, .both offieal
and private, in conventions .confer-
ences and between individuals, there
is well nigh universal agreement on
these points: .,
1. In this emergency Congress is
justified in going to unheard-of ex-,
tent to restore our merchant marine
forthwith, so that exports of raw and
manufactured cotton and all other do-
mestic merchandise may be resumed
without further delay.
2. -The United States is justified, as
) a governmental measure, in insuring

the high'seas under the American'flag,

and others who have made, advances
to cotton planters, extend. those obli-

on which they are now becoming dee.
This is in the interest of both debtors
and creditors.. ,
This should be accomplished by pub-
lic opinion andasa patriotic under-
tanding whiclt shall have the effett
of agreement of hopor between gen-
Stlemen, which is even) better than their
bond. There is everything to gain
and nothing to lose by this policy. To'

to artificially depress prices of cotton,

whole year, and thus work ouit to the

Such a voluntary and mutual under-
standing would be even better than s

The committee of /the New Yor

favorably upon this suggestion, b
proposing that all contracts for th(
delil ery of cotton, whether the actua

- AiLarge Reform.

Ah increasitng- number among cot-
Lon 'growers and the trade feel that
now is the,; time, to organize 'the
whole industry, universally adopting a
system of cotton warehouses, and
finance under federal law tat shall
make certificates- representing raw
cotton directly available as a basis for
emergency currency or for a .special
issue of government money to run for
a limited time and to be ad anced only
upon, ample margin so ats. to absolute-
l secure.
Aside from the political .and eco-
nomical objections, practical and the-
oretical, to the government embarking
upon. such a policy with cotton any
more than with- other-produce, an in-
fluential body of opinion maintains
that the aftereffect of such a policy
would be so bad as to offset any tem-
porary benefits. These people empha-
size,'the importance of ginning the
crop. promptly and of crushing the
seed so that, the vast industries de-
pendent upon cotton-seed by-products,
such as oil, meal, cake, etc., may not
be held up. l
They, also feel that universal with-
holding of raw cotton from. the mills
would defeat the most important of
all objects-that of converting the
raw fiber into finished goods for the
export trade at the earliest possible
moment. .This latter object should
not be lost sight of. The trade, the
banks, the state, the nation should
co-operate promptly to so finance the
situation that the 3,000,000 -bales
which may not be exported at all in the
-raw state may be converted into fin-
ished goods for export.,

Steam Laundry Under New Managemet

In 1909 Lord Roseberry pointed out
that, the relations between Germany
and Britain were enveloped, in a mur-
ky atmosphere of war, although there
was an entire absence of specific
questions that pointed to an outbreak
of hostilities. The two governments
had no colonial hinterland, no bound-,
ary .line, no ambiguous treaty,, no
outrage to the subjects of: either to
quarrel about. If\ one or the other
had sought a pretext for a declara-
tion of war extreme difficulty would
have been experienced in finding one
whose flimsiness wouldn't have shock-
ed 'the conscience of the ciNilized
word. Diplomatically speaking, .the
direct relations between Britain and
'Germany were strictly correct; from.
a 'purely technical viewpoint, there
"was not a cloud in 'the sky." What
was true in 1909 was true only a
month ago. They had no specific
quarrel of any sort whatever.
S Why are they now at war? Why
is Britain fighting not only on the side
of France, but on the side of Russia,
whose consistent foe she was as late
as the war, of ten years ago between
Russia and Japan? It was her alli-
ance. With Great Britain that enabled
Japan to force -her quarrel' with Rus-
sia in the Far East to the fighting
point. It was Britain against Russia
in the Crimean war of 1853-56; it
was British against Russia, morally
speaking, in tthe Russo-Turkey war of
1877-78; it was Britain against Rus-
sia*again in the Russo-Japanese war
of 1905. Blut today it is Britain with
Russia. A German professor says
this is "race treason" by the English
to 41e Teutonic branch of the human
race. '
Great Britain has now gone to war
with Germany for the immediate rea-
son that Germany has violated the
neutrality of Belgium. For almost
precisely the same reason Great Brit-
ain went to war with revolutionary
France in 1793, thus beginning the
long struggle that, ended twenty-two
years later on the field of Waterloo.
The great war of a century or more
ago and the great war of our own
time, so far as Britain was concern-
ed, began on the same pretext-treaty
violation in Belgium.

SSummer Contipation Dangerous
Constipation in summertime is more
dangerous than in the fall, winter or
spring. The food you eat is. often
contaminated and is more likely to
ferment in your stomach. Then you
are apt to drink much cold water dur-
ing the hot weather, thus injuring
your stomach. Colic, Fever, Ptomaine
Poisoning and other ills are natural
results. Po-Do-Lax will keep you
well, as it increases the Bile, the nat-
ural laxative, which rids the bowels

The Increase in Wealth.
In the fifteen years, 1894-1909, Ger-
many's total wealth enlarged from
$55,000,000,000 to $87,500,000,000. In
1890 the savings bank deposits of
Prussia were $1,436,250,000, and in
1907 they had risen to $2,280,250,000.
In 1878 German foreign commerce,
embracing imports and exports,
amounted to approximately $1,200,-
000,000; in 1892 to $1,400,000,000; in
1900 to $2,100,000,000; in 1910 to
'$4,119,000,000. In his report for the
year ended April 30, 1909, the British
consul general at Frankfort wrote
that the German securities market had
been flooded in the twelve months
under review with German issues ag-
gregating more than $750,000,000;
"and by far the greater share of the
tremendous sum was taken up in Ger-
many. Foreign purchases or partiq-
ipations were admittedly disappoint-
ing and insignificant." And the'con-
sul general added: "The wealth which
pre-eminently the last .world's boom
had brought into Germany, and which
paid for all these loans, is nothing
short of stupendous.",

Now that the real crash of the na-
tions has come, there is no mystery
in the role Britan is playing, says
Waldo L.Cook in ah exhaustive article
in the Springfield Repub'ican or*"Eng-
land in War ',and the Conflict with
Germany." The fact that she is fight-
ing in company with France and even
with Russia against Germany and
Austria-Hungary is to be explained
Son much the same grounds as 100
years ago or more when she fought
against France with Russia, Aus-
tria and Prussia. Britain always was
and probably always will be against
ah overshadowing continental power
with imperial ambitions and militarist
organization. This policy, not lacking.
in selfishness common to a stations,
begins with the existence o e Eng-
lish channel and it is ultimately re-
solved into a question of national life
or death. Such is the B sh view,
and it is still as firmly hel pparent-
S ly, as in the days of Eliza h, Crom-
' ,well or Pitt.
In that there is nothing astonish-
ing. Nor is there anything astonish-
ing in the German view that British
jealousy of the growth of, a most
formidable Germanic empire in cep-
tral Europe accounts wholl)1y for Brit-
ain's participation in the present war
as the ally of France and even of
Pan-Slavism, What is astonishing-has
been Germany's course in alienating
the sympathy of nearly all the outside
world by drawing Britain, into the
struggle on account of Belgiar neu-
trality guaranteed by the most im-
mutable of international treaties.
Violation of Belgian Rights.
Moral'y speaking, the German gov-
ernment has less of a case by far in
violating present treaty obligations
toward Belgium than revolutionary
France had in. 1798 in violatingtreaty
obligation toward Antwerp and the
Schledt. %Belgium was an Austrian
province in 1793 and .with Austria-rev-
olutionary France was already at war.
The closing of the Schledt to naviga-
tion was itslf a outrage that foul(I

of today is ,st-ate.poud 6f it, inde-
S ,pendent nationality, in no way an ob-
stacle to the world's progress. Its
people by their heroic defense of Liege
S .against the German army have proved
that their nationality is at. least
worthy of the world's respect. The
German chancellor has publicly ad-
initted that the treatment of Bel-
gium is a ."wrong"- "we shall repair
S the wrong we are doing as soon as our
military aims have been reached.
SEngland's Advantage.
Thus Britain has been gratuitously
iven, by the militarist German em-
peror, who has led. modern Germany
eto Armageddon an hialculable ad-
vantage over himself in' appealing for
final N indication, on adcdunt of 1 he
outbreak of the war, to the conscience
of mankind. There never was a Brit-
ish ministry less likely to foment War
against Germany than th one which
contained, as representatil es of a
powerful peace party, such statesmen
as Lord Morley, John Burns anhl
SLloyd George. If the German people
Sseemn to be almost without a friend
in the world in this tremendous trag-
edy, of a civilization's sudden undoing
in a whole continent's resort to arms,
they have the astonishing diplomacy
0f their ruleP to thank.
Germany Born Again. \
Since consolidation in 1871i modern
Germany has increasedhfrom about
41,000,000 inhabitants to about 65,-
000,000. The official figures of the
quinquennial*census, taken on Decem-
ber 1, 1910, were 64,903,423. Sixty
years ago there were as many French-
i man as Germans, but now the Ger
rmans are at least a third more numer-
ous. The. growth of .German cities in
the *past generation has been even
swifter than that of the great towns
of the United: States. It gives an
"American a new sense of Germany s
rapid pace to know that in the fifteen
years between 1890 and 1905 H-am-
burg grew faster than Boston,, Mu-
nrich than Baltimore, Leipsic i than
BuffalQ, Dresden than New Orleans,
Hanover than Milwaukee, Cologne

than Cincinnati, Breslau than Cleve
S land, Frankfbrt-than Pittsburg.. In
the five years prior to December 1,
1910 Lubeck increased 10 per cent,
SBi en 13 per -eent and Hamburg. 16
per cent, showing that those cities
S are still gaining rapidly in population.
Emigration from Germany has al-
most ceased.' In 1881 no less than
202,900 Germians left the fatherland
to better themselves in foreign lands,
especially in America.' In 1893 there
was noted an average annual loss to
the empire of 100"000 able-bodied sub-
jects. But ,in 1894 the ,number sud-
denlyfell to some 41,000, and the de-
cline was, then steady until in 1908
the emigration amounted to no more
than .19,880-a negligible loss made
good substantially by the immigration
-.- 4.1n -- n/itrrwxivi hasi thus


Gerntiany on the Ocean.
In transportation, both on land and
sea, the progress of Germany has
been enormous. Between 1870 and
1907 the aggregate length of German
railroads increased from 20,000 to 58,-
000 kilometers. A French economic
writer, observing the growth of the
dreaded neighbor, notes that "thanks
to the carrying out of a magnificent
river improvement scheme, the coun-
try's interior navigation has gone be-
yond the watersheds and drained the
products of central Europe toward her
ports., These latter, to which Belgian
Aiqtwerp and Dutch Rotterdam serve
as auxiliaries, are the best fitted up
in thbe world. German, shipbuilding
yards have a universal reputation.
German docks monopolize the major
portion of European exportation. The
trading fleet of Hamburg alone sur-
passes in tonnage the #hole of /that
of France." In 1873 the merchant
marine of Germany aggregated 1,098,-
846 tons in 1909 the tonnage has sub-
stantially quadrupled. The German
"liner" has become in our day one of
the most popular and lxurious agen-
cies of trans-Atlantic oyagming. i,
The powerful empire, which forty,
years ago was able to crush in war
the nations then deemed to be the'
greatest military power in Europe,,
has grown so strong that she almost
bursts her boundaries. The popula-
tion ,of 65,000,000 meets nearly all
tests of, an-ambitious, educated and
virile people. The empire's political
influence has become immense be-
cause of these facts, let alone the
.minite" weight.- of ,the armaments
which ohe empire has maintained, in
unfailing readiness for war. The core
a:nd soul of the Triple Alliance, which
Bismarck created, Germany has sat
astride central Europe like a cavalry-
mhan on his mount.

A good title-and you ought to have it. Titles to your
property are shown by Abstracts of Title. An Abstract
of Title may show a good title or bad title. And there .are
good abstracts and bad abstracts.

You Can Get a Good Title
FIRST:-Your contract with. the person you buy from
should read: ."The first party shall furnish a merchant,
ble Abstract of Title brought down to the datoof trans-
fer showing a merchantable title in thefirst party, and
allow the second party a reasonable time to have the
same examined."
SECOND:- Take the Abstrac.t of Title to your attorney,
and have him carefully examine it, givingi.is written opin
ion with objections and notations.
THIRD:-Instruct your attorney to see that all his objec-
tions are cured so that you get--
(a) A merchantable Abstract of Title -not any old
kind. You are entitled to the best. Don't take
any chances.
(b). A merchantable title-unless you get a reliable
abstract you can't be sure you are getting it.

The City Council haN e purchased a
motor fire truck and pump for the
purpose of fighting, fire, at $8,000.
This order was placed about eight
months ago, after mature deliberation
upon the part of the Council, subject,
however*, to certain test guarantees
upon delivery, when the machine was
manufactured and delivered at Lake
It will be remembered by all our
citizens tat the City Council had this
matter under consideration for many
months before giving the order. About
one year ago a committee from the
City Council visited Jacksonmille to
see a like machine tested and Coun-
.cilman Dowling as result of an acci-
dent was badly crippled 'during the
test guarantees of that particular ma-
chine. Later on a committee from the
Council visited Gainesville to witness
guarantee tests of a machine exactly
like the one purchased for Lake, City.
The intention of the City Council to
buy the machine was thoroughly, aired
through the local papers, but not a
single objection was heard until the
fire truck had been manufactured,
shipped and delivered in accordance
with terms of agreement. At this
late hour quite a howl goes up, and
a lawsuit brought against the city,
the expense of which will have to be
borne by the taxpayers.
Is this treating the City Council,
the people, or the; manufacturers whd
sold the machine in good faith, just or
fair ? If any one had' objections to a
motor fire truck it should have been
made known before the order was
given, or at least before the machine
,was built and shipped at a consider-
able expense to the manufacturers.
Up to this hour we hae heard no
,one say that machine is not Up to
contract, and that it is not i badly
needed by the city. The slogan being
that the city can't afford it-We ask
the question Can the city afford to do
without it? .
Who had fire protection in this city
before the purchase of the motor
truck? Did any one in the outskirts
of the city have adequate fire protec-
tion? Certainly not., We have seen
numbers of dwellings and other prop-
erty destroyed because it was, impos-
sible to 'get the hose to the.fird in
titne to be of aany service. With this
motor truck its only a question of
four or five minutes at the outside,
in; any part of thecity,'to puimpn water
2,600 feet and throw: it on top of any
building in thecity. P
SEvery taxpayer pays a watdr and
,light tax, but 'ew have had proper
fire protection. With this new ma-
clhine and an efficient fire department
we will in future ha-e fewer fires, be-
dides a lower rate of insurance will
be theresult'
b Every town in Florida of any size
has purchased a motor truck similar
to the onepurchased by Lake City and
are well pleased with- their invest-
ment. .

motored over to the city Thursday,
to spend the day.

Under, the management of the new
board of directors of the Elks' Club
many improvements have been under-
taken lately in outside repairs and
interior furnishings, which when com-
plete will add materially to the gen-
eral appearance of the -building. There
has been purchased f0r the club re-
ce'ntly a handsome mahogany Victor
graphophone and other additions
made for the entertainment and com-
fort of members. The Elks' Club
furnishes an excellent place for rest
and recreation after business hours
for a largenumber of members who
.:haye no home ties, and this being
the case the club should put forth
'every effort to entertain aRd make
the club .house as inviting as is possi-
ble. With little expense the club could
maintain a first-class reading room,
including the leading dailies and mag-
azines. .If properly brought to their
attention ; many leading publishers
throughout the country would supply
the club with journals at'greatly, re-
duced prices. '

School, classes in the Mthodist, Bap-

i The fundamental pr1iples of the
Scout organization coert very im-
portant field for the accomplishment
of good. ,The character :pf work to
be done is of a benevolent:and charit-
able nature. The Scouts have so far
in .their treasury a charity fund of
$11,95. The boys composing the mem-
bership of this organisation should
receive every encouragement :in their
work from parents and older heads.

The Part He Didn't Report.
A good joke on an editor who went
one evening to report, party at a
home recently blessed:,,wth a new
baby. He met his hostess pt the door,
and after the usual .salutations he
askel after the baby' health. The
lady, who was quite.cteafsYh d suffer-
ing with the griAp lt e. was
asking after her. c0ld, arid answered
that although she u ualy hatd -pne ev-
ery winter, this was really theworst
one she had ever had; it kept her
awake at night a goodd deal. and first
confined'to her bed. Then noticing
:that the newspaper man was getting
nervous, she said she -could tell by
his looks that he was going to have
.one just like her's;.

during the war is being formulated
into a bill which will be expedited as
rapidly as possible by the committees.
Senator Clarke and Representative Al- 1
exander,,chairman of-the House Mer- o
chant Marine committee have tenta- J
tive drafts of the bill, which would
provide for the organization of a cor- c
pbration to operate-a line of ships to t
be purchased by the government. Sale
of Panama canal bonds to finance the t
project is contemplated. e
Some opposition to this project has
developed in the House. Representa-
tive Alexander, after a conference t
with Senator Clarke, said the bill as t
outlined was not in shape for intro- (
duction and intimated there might be
delay in the consideration. Democrat-
ic senators said the Senate would pro-
ceed independent of the House ac-
"We believe," explained Mr. Alex-
ander, "that with the passage of the
bill allowing foreign built vessels to
come under American registry and
with the expected passage of the war-
risk isukance bill, Congress has done
all that, was necessary to meet the sit-
uation. If the shipping interests do
not buy ships then it will be time to
consider the government's appropria-
ting money for the purpose."
SThe House Naval committee which
is working independently on the mer-
chant marine problem, sought the ad-
vice of Robert Lansing, counsellor fgr
the State Department. Mr. Lar.s:.ng
.outlined the general rules of interna-
tional law governing "neutral govern-
ments and discussed the question of
contraband of war. ,
Committee members professed to
see danger of complication in the Eu-
ropean tangle if ,the government un-
dertook to operate merchant ships
to Europe which might be called upon
to transport contraband.

Statement Giving Reasons for De-

mand Made.

Washington, D. C. Interference
by German cruisers'wit.h the shipping
of Japan's ally, Great Britain, the
seizure ofJapanese goods in German
bottoms and the consequent grave
dislocation of Japanese trade are the
principal reasons set forth by Japan
in explaining the xiltimatum delivered
to Germany last week. Cable dis-
patches have, contained a brief out-
/ line of the- Japanese grievances, but
the full'text of the Japanese Foreign
Office's statement on this subject was
not available until today. "The docu-
ment said: '
"'From the beginning of hostilities
between, England and Germany the
latter has been bending all her ener-
gies to strengthening all her fortifica-
tions at Kiao Chow, even enforcing
Chinese coolies to labor upon them.
Meanwhile the Geriman squadrons in
the Far lEast haNe/ been making in-
cessant appearance in Chinese waters,
making Kiao Chow their base and, in
co-operation with German converted
cruisers, `threatening and interfering
with British shippingand commerce.
"In fact, the, whole Eastern com-
mercial world has been thrown into
a state ofutmost uneasiness. Sbme
of the Japanese merchant vessels have
been ,detained and all the Japanese
cargoes on German merchant vessels
have been requisitioned.
"It is clear that unless Germany
has' a strong base -at'.Kiao Chow the
conditions outlined 'could never have
been produced. It is the possession
of Kiao .Chow that 'is solely responsi-
ble for it all; it is the strongest weap
Son in Germany's hands, so far as tj-e
Far East is concerned.
"The history of the seizure of the
place by Germany and her conduct
'preceding and icloding her interven-
", -, ':tion, in conjunction with Russia and
S:'France, after the Chino-Japanese war,
shows that it, is 'absolutely necessary
S; :tp eliminate such possession complete-
Sly if Japan is to restore immediate
complete peace in the Far East in ac-
j.ornee with the terms of the Anglo-
^"'-,n"$ e -lifafe"'.. -- --.
Most significant qf the day's devel-
,: opmerits in the European situation
here was the inquiry of the Chinese
-,, 'government of, the, United States
S whether the latter would undertake
the trusteeship of the territory of
S- '. Kiao Chow, transferring it immediate-
ly from Germanry .to Ch ina.
China's inquiry was understood to
S have been based, on an acquiesence
r ;.* of Germany in such a plan, hoping
S thereby to avert war with Japan
While officials were generally reticent
to. express any opinions, it was gener-
ally believed that the American gov-
S.-eriment would not occept such pro-
posal unless both Japan .and Great
-' Britain formally assented. President
Wilson and Secretary Bryan thus fa
have scrupulously avoided invol'in- g
S the Uthited States in any way in th(
situation .
China's endeavors to obtain the ter
ritory of Kiao Chow and at the same
Time preserve neutral relations witl
S Germany, Japan and Great Britain
were"manifest in the dispatches front
Peking. In any eventuality China in
dicated, clearly to the American gov
ermiment her firm intention of remain
ing absolutely neutral.
Diplomatic dispatches from Europ<
contained little information concern
ing the progress of the war..
President Wilson told callers toda.
that he was deeply appreciative o
': the hearty response to his appeal ark
ing the people to remain neutral ii
'their public expressions on the war
Several peace..organizations have ask
ed the administration's attitude tow
_ ' ard mass. meetings planned as a dem
r onstration against dent and Mr. Bryan discussed a meet
S .ing planned by a New York ,.Peace so
city. The President did riot approve
'of the meeting; but suggested tha
speeches referring to individual coun
tries in the present war be omitted.

"Dogs of war" is a phrase which
once meant a thing as real as the war-
horse. Dogs have played their part
in battles and campaigns and in the
old wars between Enlgland and Scot-
land dogs were used by both combat-
ants for pursuing and killing fugitives
after a defeat. It is related that Wal-
lace and Bruce each had close escapes
from.capture by English bloodhounds.
Bruce is said to have thrown the Eng-
lish dogs off the scent by the now well-
known expedient of wading up a
stream far enough to baffle his pur-
suers and/Wallace evaded the hounds
by having recourse to a trick more or
less common in those bloody times
of killing a follower and leaving the
body in the dogs' path for them to
come upon. The dogs finding a bbdy
believed, that their task was done arid
discontinued the hunt.
SIn the history of the' wars of the
middle ages one finds reference to the
use of big dogs against cavalry for
the. purpose of throwing the horses
into confusion and not alone for -caus-
ing panic but casualties, for these
fierce canine partisans were clothed in
coats of mail studded with spikes and
hai ing scythes fitted to their harness.
Instances were recorded where war-
dogs with firebrands fastened to their
coats of mail have been set on an
enemy's camp with destructive results.
Henry VIII must have .,found dogs
useful in military ways,- because in
English history it is written that he
offered the use of 40,000 auxiliaries
and 4000 war-dogs to King Charles V
of Spain to aid that monarch in .his
war with Francis I.
In the reign of Queen' Elizabeth,
when the Earl of Essex entered Ire-
land for the purpose of suppressing
insurrection there, his army was ac-
companied by 100 bloodhounds.

Notice is hereby given that under
and in pursuance of a final decree of
foreclosure of mortgage and sale,
made and entered on July 21, 1914,

Columbia County, Florida, in the case

The Flower Exchange.
I believe that I have mentioned be-
fore in these columns the plan of the
flower exchange between club mem-
I hope every member of the club is
preparing to take some part in it.
To those who do not understand it
I will explain.
In my visits among the girls I have
found one or more beautiful flowers
in each yard. The idea occurred to
me that by an exchange each one
might have some of all or such as
they desire, and to this end I have
asked the girls to save the seeds of
annuals and to make rooted cuttings
of such plants and shrubs as are .prop-
agated in that way. Or, failing to
get them rooted, they may bring some
cuttings in a small box of wet sand.
I am sure that ideas and plans will
suggest themselves to the girls, for I
have found them most resourceful.
I have mentioned this scheme to
some of my woman friends here in
town. They have most heartily ap-
proved it, and I hope to have a nice
prize donated from some of the col-
lections of the town women for the
best exhibit in the flower exchange
by a club girl.
I am going to write to the Depart-
ment in Washington for plans for
the beautifying of home grounds and
these will be exhibited at the fall
club exhibit, and any one may have a:
copy of the plan they like best or
think most suitable for their own
Another thing I wish very much for
the girls and boys to do is to make
rooted cuttings now of grape I vines.
Be sure. you have a nice variety and
next spring at the proper season
these will be distributedWo those who
would like them.
In the organizations of the Boy
Scouts and Camp Fire Girls they have
a rule that each one must do a kindly
deed each day. The girls also have a
way of keeping itbefore themselves
until it is done. (
I My idea in this flower and fruit tree
exchange is" to inculcate and foster a
neighborly spirit. r,
We are getting too much in the
habit of selling everything.
--- .... .Thc eormwexcals'pii'L has.s-gaed.
Stood much headway in certain respects.
, Do you not think it would be much
to the credit of the tomato clubs if
we could start a reaction, at least so
far as 'our county is concerned?
I have a few plants started, and I
am planning other things.
Mrs. Henderson has promised to
give me the trimmings of her fig tree,
and I mean to make it into cuttings
and root them for the club girls.
A certain gentlemen has promised
to make a lot of cuttings of a certain
kind of pear he has.
And just here I will say to any per-
son who reads this that we will appre-
ciate any help from any one, either
of the town or the country. .
Please look over what you have and
see if you have not something which
would cost you nothing to divide and
share with some one else.
I'm sure it would be a pleasure for
you to help us in this little plan for
making every home in Columbia coun-
ty pleasanter, happier and healthier

It is the view of experts that the
war in Europe means great prosperity
to this country. It is being pointed
out that it is practically impossible
that the avenues of commerce should
remain closed(, As soon as they are
opened there will be such a demand
for our products that prices will rise
and agriculture and manufacturing
will be stimulated tothe utmost.
The industries of Europe will be
partly paralyzed and agriculture will
languish for lack, of labor. Conse-
quently the countries engaged in the
war and the countries they have been
supplying will have to depend upon us
for the things they need and must
have. It is being R nted out that
the, South American'7tates, for in-'
stance, that have been trading with
England and Germany and France,will
now give tieir trade to us and that
much of it will remain with us after
peace is'"restored. *"
There isn't any doubt, of course, that
in some ways the war will be helpful
to' this country, though just at present
it threatens to cause a heavy loss to
this section.%It isn't believed, however,
that the South's cotton will be kept
out of the world's markets very long.
It is confidently expected that in less
than a month it will be moving to the
countries of Europe that want it. Of
course, they cannot take as much of
it as they would take if'peace prevail-
ed, but our own mills will need more
than they would otherwise take be-
cause there will be such a demand for
their output that they will be stim-
ulated to greater effort. t t
,We do not, of course, rejoice at the
misfortune that has overtaken the.
peoples of Europe, but there is no
reason why we shouldn't point out the
benefits that promise to accrue to us
from their misfortune. Sar annah

Hardwood Cuttings.
Simple Cuttings.-The most com-
4mon form of hard wood cuttings that
is usually employed in propagating
thh grape and currant. Such a cut-
ting consists of a straight portion of
a shoot or cane, nearly uniform in
size throughout, and containing two
or more buds. At the lower end it
is usua'ly cut off just oelow a bud, be-
cause roots develop most readily from
joints. At the top the cut is usually
made at some distance above the high-
est bud.
Heel Cuttings.- A cutting of the
heel form consists of the lower por-
tion of a branch containing two or
more buds, cut from the parent branch
in such a manner as to carry with it
a small portion of that branch, form-
ing the so-called "heel."
Mallet Cuttings-A cutting of mal-
let form is produced by severing the
parent branch above and below a
shoot, so as to leave a section of it
on the base of the cutting.
The principal advantage in the use
of heel cuttings and mallet cuttings
lies in the greater certainty of de-
veloping roots. The principal draw-
back is that only one cutting can be
made from each lateral branch.
Single-eye Cuttings.-When it is
desired to make the largest possible
number of cuttings from a limited
suply of wood, cuttings are made con-
taining but one bud each. Such cut-
tings are commonly started under
glass with bottom heat, either in
greenhouse or hotbed. They may be
set either in horizontal position, with
the bud on 'the upper side, or perpen-
dicularly. In either case the bud is
placed about an inch below the sur-
face, preferably in clean sand, which

-Cuttings are usually made with two
or more buds. The cuttings are made
while the wood is dormant during the
autumn or early winter.
Herbaceous or Soft-wood Cuttings.
-This class of cuttings is exempli-
fied in the "slips" used to increase the
numbers of house plants. Many
greenhouse plants, including roses,
geraniums, chrysanthemums, fuchsias,
begonias, and the like, are propagat-
ed by soft- wood cuttings. One of,
...ne chief advantages of this method
is that it can be employed in the win-
ter under glass.
Herbaceous cuttings may be made
from leaf or stem.
Leaf Cuttings.-These are common-
ly employed in' multiplying hoyas
(wax'plants), begonias, and other
plants having thick fleshy leaves con-
taining a large quantity of plant food
either in the body of the leaf or its
larger ribs.
Such cuttings may be made from
parts of a leaf or a whole leaf may be
employed. In either case a leaf which
has reached its full development and
is in a vigorous, healthy condition is
very essential.
Stem Cuttings-A stemn cutting, or
"slip," is a portion of a branch con-
taining 2 or more nodes (eyes), with
leaves attached. Stem cuttings of
p coleus, geranium, and allied plants
, strike root very freely.' As .a gen-
eral rule, in,preparing slips the leaf
area should be reduced (cut off nearly
Small the leaves)to a minimum in order
to lessen evaporation of the moisture
contained in the cutting, and thus pre-
vent wilting.

Studies of Cuttings.

Plants increase normally by seeds,
stolons, or. root/sprouts. These nat-
ural processes subserve the nAecessi-
ties of nature in providing a succes-
sion of vegetation upon the earth.
For man's uses, however, it is desir-
able for many purposes that there. be
large numbers of plants which are
similar in the character of their
growNh or which produce fruits or
flowers that are alike. Plants in na-
ture conform to these requirements
only in part. It therefore becomes
necessary to use methods for increas-
ing certain plants. which will insure
uniformity. The .reproduction of
plants by cuttings is one of the meth,
Sods employed to accomplish this re-
A cutting is a detached portion of a
plant inserted in soil or water for
the purpose of reproducing a plant
with characters like that from which
the cutting was taken. There are
several types of cuttings, such as her-
baceaus cuttings, those made from the
soft,\ growing wood, and hard wood
cuttings, made from the growth ofthe
season after the growing period is
past and the wood has become. ma-
tured.. Grapes, currants, privet and
plants of that character are readily
increased from hard wood' cuttings of
this nature. Leaves of plants, such as
