CANNING CLUB -.WORK
Friends and admirers of the can canning
ning canning club work have every reason to
feel proud of the record made by
the club members of Marion county
for the year 1914.
When we consider the distressing
climatic conditions, which of course
resulted in disastrous crop conditions
and then look over the amount of
work that "has been accomplished, we
must admit with pride, the true cour
age and determination of our girls.
It was most discouraging to the
farmers of large acreage and to the
giri whose garden limit is one-tenth
of an acre and that -almost a total
f allure, as far as profit and yield is
concerned, it was likewise trying, and
yet most of them are bravely going
on with their work regardless of re repeated
peated repeated failures. 1
One item taken from the report of
1914, shows that zo girls are re responsible
sponsible responsible for putting up 4,000 cans of
tomatoes, 250 cans of corn, okra and
other vegetables, 375 glasses (jars)
of pickles, preserves, marmelades and
jellies, 225 bottles of catsup, does
the average person realize what this
means in the homes of, the girls ?
Aside from the fact that they are
supplying the home with a better and
a more abundant product, they are
advancing in various lines of indus industry,
try, industry, studying many things that will
be useful through life, among tthe
most important being, bookkeeping,
for every girlv should be her home
The virtues of the canning club
work are too numerous to be given
here, but in the beginning of the new
year's work, I would like to urge the
cooperation of every one in the coun county
ty county to the end that Marion county's
record for 1915 will stand highest in
the state, and that many homes; and
every store in Marion county will be
well stocked with fruits and veget vegetables
ables vegetables put up' under the (4H) brand
;and having the names .of our own
.home girls on them. C
f I am now going among the club
-members of 1914 to. learn how many
are going to be members this year.
Several girls have written me, asking
-that they be enrolled as canning club
members. I am glad to note that
these girls who are asking to become
club members' are from parts of the
county where much good will bes ac accomplished,

the question is worth considering, it involves the origin and the
the development of individual ownership in land.
in the be'gmning of civilization no man owned any definite part of
the earth, nomadic tribe's camped over particular sections of it;
homes and trading places were not fixed; land was too plentiful for
individuals to dispute over the occupancy of any particular spot.

of farm products as has heretofore
been the case. ;
The canning club work is no longer
considered an experiment, it is now;
recognized as a means of saving in
the homes and teaching our girls j
the rules of real home making.
This year we hope to study the ;
matter of a variety of tomatoes, ex-
perience has proven that the ordi ordinary"
nary" ordinary" shipping tomato is not the very
best for canning purposes, we must
try out and determine what is the
best in every particular for our sec section
tion section of the county. The tomato that
scores the highest in color, taste and
firmness, being thoroughly suited to
our climate is what we must have.
The tomato of course is the first
study of the canning club girl, but
from tjiat she goes on to the entire
farm product, with their club motto
"to make the best better" ever be before
fore before her. My object in this article is
to call attention to the fact that it is
now time to begin another years
work and that in order to make good
we must make due preparation.
Therefore I must earnestly solicit
the cooperation of every one. My ambition-is
to have Marion county stand
at the very head of the list in can canning

must be a perfect cooperation. I ear earnestly

teachers to advise and encourage the
girls in this great enterprize. If you
think it a good thing then tell them
so and advise them to enroll at once.
It is an oppprtunity worth the while
and should have the endorsement of
all who are interested in the well well-fare

PREPARE FOR GASPARILLA
Tampa, The "Payroll City," Getting
Ready To Receive Ye Mystic
Krewe Next Month
Tampa, Fla., Jan. Cosmopolitan
Tampa, known throughout the country
as "The Payroll City," is making elab elaborate
orate elaborate preparations for holding tho
tenth annual Gasparilla Carnival, nam named
ed named for Gasparilla, one of the most
desperate pirates that ever infested
the Gulf Coast of Florida and the
Spanish Main during the closing days
of the eighteenth and opening days of
the nineteenth centuries. The datefc
of the Carnival, which is patterned af-
ter the New Orleans Mardi Gras, with
many amusement features peculiar to
the semi-tropics added, are February
12 to 16, inclusive, and in honor of the
celebration the xrail roads have offered
extremely low round-trip rates from all
points east of the Mississippi 'river.
Every attraction of the Carnival will
be free, and Tampans are preparing
to care for 100,000 visitors during the
five days of festivity.
Gasparilla was not as widely known
to fame as "Captain Kldd and LaFitte
the French terror, but he was their
equal in cruelty and daring. He and
hlg crew robbed and burned many
merchant ships, securing millions in
Spanish gold and taking captive many
women, whose husbands, fathers and
brothers were made; to "walk the
plank" and find graves among the cor coral
al coral beds beneath the blue Gulf waters.
"Overboard with the men,' but capture
the women," 'was Gasparilla's com command
mand command to his crew, and he held many
beautiful but unfortunate women for
a long time in an immense but crude
and well-fortified castle on Gasparilla
Isle, on which! the thriving port of j
Boca Grande stands today. He and!
his crew were finally captured and
hanged by the fighting men of an j
American gunboat in 1800, since which j
time peace has reigned in the Gulf wa-j
ters except during the filibustering and
troop-embarking days of the Spanish-;
American War. For ten years, though,
the ghost of Gasparilla and his phan-j
torn crew have attacked Tampa, and
their coming is marked by a festival
such as people of the semi-tropics are!
alone capable Of producing.
This year the Carnival will be more
attractive than ever, and particularly
to residents of winter-bound states,
Among the features offered for their
attraction will be monster pageants,
n which allegorical floats of great
beauty will pass through the streets
of the city; maneuvers of war vessels
in the harbor and of United States
troops, aeroplane flights, day and night
ican and Cuban bands, balls in the
American, Spanish, Cuban, Italian and
German clubs and other brilliant so-
r cial features.
To the tourist and homeseeker the
i principal attraction will be a "Garden
! of Eden" exhibition of fruits, flowers,
I vegetables and other semi-tropical
products on the court house square in
Tampa. This exhibition will surpass
anything of the kind ever prepared by

AWAITING FAMOUS PIRATE
Tampa Prepares For Annual Landing j
Of Ye Mystic Krewe Of
Gasparilla 1 I
Tampa, Fla., .Jan. Presenting
the varied beauties and resources of
semi-tropic Southern Florida, and re reviving
viving reviving its romance-written past as
well, the tenth annual carnival of Ye
Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla, named for
one of the fiercest pirates of American
history, will be held in this city from
February 12 to 16, inclusive, attract attracting
ing attracting a host of health and pleasure-seek- j
ers from the "frigid zone" above the i
northern boundary line of the Para- j
dise of Flowers. It is confidently ex-!
pected that all attendance records for
Florida events will be broken during
the five-day period of festivity, and
among the visitors will be many nota notables
bles notables of America and foreign countries.
President Wilson is among those be-J
ing urged to attend.
The twelve counties of Southern
Florida,, owing to their varied re resources,
sources, resources, have weathered the period of
depression resulting from the sudden
outbreaT cf the European war and
flnancia elation at Washington in
a magniucent manner, as shown t
the general demand for the holding o
a- "prosperity celebration" In Tampa.,
These counties appear t best advan advantage
tage advantage during the month of February, at
which : festivities of the tourist an1
fruit and vegetable shipping season
are at their heights, and the words of
greeting to the visiting tho; sand will
bv "repression is an unktv' u expe expe-nenr
nenr expe-nenr here." Therefore, the Gaspa Gaspa-rii
rii Gaspa-rii x ?arnival will be promoted on a
gra-.er scale than ever before. In
honor of the annual event the rail railroads
roads railroads and steamship lines have grant
ed extremely low rates to Tampa and
other places In South Florida from all
points east of the Mississippi river, and
from some points west.
More than a century ago Gasparilla
and his crew held forth in a crude but
well fortified mansion on Gasparilla
Isle, which lies just south of Tampa,
from which they sallied forth in search
of treasure ships and pretty women, j
many of whom were -taken and held j
captive. Just once did the crew ven- j
ture into Tampa's bay Tampa .was
nothing more than a' fishing hamlet
then but they were forced to 'beat a
quick retreat by the men. in the garri
son known as Fort Brook! These
hardy soldiers, some of .whom fought
in the War of 1812 and against the
Seminole ; Indians, put the pirates to
flight without a battle. The comman
der of Fort Brook, not being a naviga
tor, followed the pirates, into the Gulf
and returned by throwing shingles into
the waters, being enabled thereby to
come back over the course taken in
going 1 out. For ten years past Ihe
ghostly figures of the pirate crew have
fallen upon and taken the city, but in
the. cause of peace and pleasure and
not in the quest for blood and gold.
The anding of Gasparilla has, there therefore,
fore, therefore, become almost as widely known
among the"children of. America as the j
landing of DeSoto, which is also por-'
trayed, during the Carnival. The Car- j
nival is one of the most brilliant s"o-
cial events of the South each year.
Owing to the increased interest in :
the monster .carnival pageants, the j
number of allegorical and historical
parades will necessarily be increased
this year, and scores of floats of
marvelous beauty will be entered.
Maneuvers by warships, aeroplane
flights, regattas, day and nfght fire- j
works displays in the bay and river,
a beautiful exhibition of South Flori- j
da products on the court house square
and other features are being arranged ;
for the entertainment of the visitors.
The carnival will excel the fetes of 1
Southern Europe In uniqueness, if not 1
in splendor, and every visitor will be
well cared for by the populace.

his full part in making for the pio pioneer

DOING G0USII1 A FAVOR
By MILLIE JEANETTE.
Early in the winter I bought a taupe
hat, with a plume shaded from taupe
to a vivid rose. At first I liked it very
much, but when the shaded plumes be began
gan began to be common I grew tired of it
and wished I had chosen a more ex
clusive style, I saw a hat in a shop j
window in our neighborhood that was
just what I desired. As it was marked
down on account of the lateness of the
season, I was strongly tempted to buy
It, but it seemed extravagance when
my own hat was perfectly good. Then
I thought I saw a chance to do Cousin
Fannie a favor.
. "You really need a new hat," I said
to her, "and I'll be gladto let you have
this one, dear, at half what I paid for
"If I need a new one," Cousin Fannie
said, laughing in an odd way, "why
should I buy your old one?"
"But this is just as good as new and
much handsomer 'than anything you
could find at the price," I explained.
"You know. very well that for me it
would be quite out of character,'" she
declared. "I'm really surprised, Lu Lu-clle,
clle, Lu-clle, that you should ask me to buy it."
The annoyance in Cousin Fannie's
tone was distinctly unpleasant to me.
I am always so sensitive, and s I had
been merely trying tc be obliging. I
think Cousin Fannie is growing more
and more difficult. It requires a great
deal of patience and tact on my part
to live with her, despite my unfailing
I had almost resigned myself to
wearing the taupe hat until It was time
to get a spring .one, when Arthur
Knight and George Requier Invited
Louise Erwin and me to a little social,
affair at their club. Then I felt that I
positively must dress in' a manner to
do them credit. As poor, dear Louise
is such a dowdy, it seemed especially
necessary for me to look my best. I
went around to the little milliner's and
found .that the hat I had admired was
still there. When I tried it on I saw
at once that it suited my style exactly.
"But I oughtn't to buy it," I sighed.
"I really can't afford another hat when
this one of mine is so, perfectly good."
"It's wonderfully becoming," said
the milliner. "You won't regret pick picking
ing picking up such a bargain."
But I still hesitated. "If I could
only sell this," I said as I took off the
new hat and contemplated my old on
a moment before putting it on.
: "Leave it here and I'll do my best to
sell it for you," said the milliner.
"How good of you!" I exclaimed as
I opened my purse and paid for the
new hat. I wore away my new pur purchase

Both Arthur and George managed
to convey their appreciation of my ap appearance

was rather painful. But Louise did
not appear to notice it. She seems to
be one of those unfortunate persons
who pay little attention to dress. I
sometimes marvel that she is invited
I watched the milliner's window with

Then one day I happened to meet
Carol Nodine shopping madly.
"I suppose I look like a back num
ber," she said. "You know, I haven't
been in town this winter until today,
and I need almost everything before 1
can go anywhere."
"If you want a hat you'd better go
to a splendid little milliner up our
way," I said. "She sells perfect beau beauties

"Really? It's charming. I'll certain certainly

"Well, I suppose you know that the

the hat she bought was one that I had

is surely not my fault that she hap happened

of Mr. Gerig's election, and if it was
legal for him to sit onUhe board. Mr;
Hocker stated that the decisions that
he could recall, the constitution of
the state and city, charter did not
forbid or prohibit a person from
holding two offices where they were
not incompatible, and he saw nothing
in these f? two offices that ; was in in-compatible,

that the council itself was the "best

matters to the council to decide for
itself. ; V A; motion was then made and

should be seated. ,
Mr. Meffert objected to Mr. Carmi Carmichael

that there was some little doubt of
the regularity of the recent elections

an officer held over till his successor
was elected and qualified and Mr.
Carmichael remained in his seat.
