Rchard H, Edmonds of Baltimore,
editor of the Manufacturers Record,
who has been on the west coast of
Florida for several weeks, stopped in
Jacksonville over night on his way
to Atlanta, and, discussing the south
and Florida, said:
"The meeting of the Georgia Bank Bankers,

a reminder of how wonderfully the
banning interests of the whole South
have grown of late years.

he threw his arms out and gave a

disgust was about as great as that

Florida's Coming: ProgreH.
"Florida will make more progress
in the next ten years than it has
in the last twenty. It will not build
so many miles of railroads, but it
will reconstruct what it has, and
double 'track most of them. It will
double its tourist business, much
more than double its fruit and vege vegetable

the true value of its property at
present, to as much as $1,200,000,000.
Double Track a Necessity.
"Under thev3 conditions Florida
railroads will need to be up and do doing
ing doing in double tracking and better
roadbeds, or the traffic will so far
out grow their facilities as to cause
a physical breakdown.
"The East Coast railroad people
found out last year that traffic had
suddenly outgrown their facilities to
their great surprise. They tried to
move heaven and earth in order to
move freight and passenger trains.
The East Coast section under the
splendid leadership of that road has
made a marvelous advance.
"Three years ago a Baltimore bank banker
er banker who had been studying It said that
in ten years the East Coast would
have a larger population than the
whole State then had. That was a
rather bold prediction but it was
made by a very conservative banker
who has always been very careful In
making his calculations, for on his
statements as to railroad and business
growth, many millions have been in
Am to the Went t'oHMt.
"Unfortunately for the West Coast
and the interior there has not been
since. Mr. Plant's death any great
masterful leadership such as the East
Coast has had. The time has come
when some one of the other railroads
should develop a genius for leader leadership
ship leadership and take hold of the West Coast
with such broad conception as the
East Coast railroad people have given
to their territory.
"Heretofore Florida's development
has been somewhat haphazard. Its
vegetable and citrus fruit industry
has not been well systematized; there
has been no adequate work to guard
against tree disease. Now these
things demand attention. The grow growers
ers growers of the State, or both, should em
ploy one or more men of the very
highest ability regardless of the ost
to constantly inspect all fruit trees
in order to detect any enemies and to
safeguard against them.
"Any diseased tree likely to Injure
others should be immediately de destroyed
stroyed destroyed under State auspices. Con
stant study should be made by such
a man or men of the best ways to
sort and pack oranges and grapefruit
so as to avoid the amount of badly
packed fruit which often ruins a box
and reflects on the whole State.
"For ten or twelve years I have
bought from one grower at Rock-
ledge my table fruit and in the ag aggregate

Christmas presents. In all that time
and in all these boxes there has not
been found as much as a dozen im imperfect

"The grower charges accordingly.
and th trade is profitable to him
and satisfactory to his customers. All
Florida oranges are not handled that
way, but they should be. Experts
are needed to protect the trees from
disease, to safeguard the future, to
encourage careful cultivation and
packing, so that a Florida orange will
everywhere be known for Its excel excellence.

"If the State cannot do this work
then the growers ought to do it at
their own expense. Possibly the East
Cost, the West Coast and the in interior
terior interior should each employ such ex experts

rlvalry to produce the bes-t fruit and
to market It in the best condition.
The value of the work would be a

"But coming back from Florida's
affairs to the progress of the whole
South, in which bankers and all
others are interested, it is a surpris
ing fact that the South of today with
a population of 33,000,000 is in many
respects far ahead of the United
States of 1880, which had a popula population

"The Youth's manufacturing capital
exceeds by $300,000,000 the capital
invested in the manufactures in the
United States in 1880. The South's
industrial output exceeds in value by
several hundred million dollars the
value of its agricultural output, not notwithstanding

CARV-THOMAS CO, WILL
ADOPT THE CASH SYSTEM
We have adopted the Cash System
at our store. The laws of our State
protect the person who wants to beat
his grocer, and discriminate against
the merchant. Under this system the
good customers have to pay far the
debts of the bad ones. There are a
number of people about the country
who beat the grocers, in spite of all
they can do. Tbey put up a plausible
story and get credit and do not pay.
In the long run the good, steady pay paying
ing paying customer has to pay for these bad
debts, for they are an expense of the
business. It is, therefore fair to all. to
sell only for cash We will do business,
in future on a strict cash basis. We
will be able t sell you groceries at
closer prices, for we will get pay for
all we sell. We appreciate the trade
of all our customers, and are doing this
to protect them as well as ourselves.
When you get accustomed to the new
system, we know you will like It.

A colored nurse from Ocala went to
Jacksonville a few days ago and upon
her return stated that she read in a
paper up there this story which she
believed and proceeded to pass along
with considerable success.
A ii.iby was born Uiere. and four
hours afterwards spake and told its
mother that it would die in eight hours
and that eight hours later, she. Its
mother would also die, that in eight
days it would begin to rain and would
rain eight days and nights and that
on the morning of the ninth day the
judgement day would come. The young
prophet never spoke again, and it and
its mother were gathered to Abraham's
bosom on schedule time. Also, It be began

things for the inner man were being
enjoyed, the bright wit and quick
repartee of the clever hostesses and
their happy guests made the house re resound

pass quite rapidly.
After the dinner the young people
repaired to the parlor where music, on

III RIAL OF ADA IIICKNER
The remains of Ada Buckner, the un unfortunate
fortunate unfortunate girl who was murdered Fri Friday
day Friday morning, were laid to rest in Smith
& Roberts' cemetery, on the north side
of town Sunday afternoon.
The services took place in Covenant
Baptist church, of which the murdered
girl was member. The attendance was
large and the pastor made a most im impressive
pressive impressive address. The casket was ac accompanied
companied accompanied by six young women, all of
whom bore beautiful floral tributes to
their dead friend.
A great many people, not a few of
them white, visited the establishment
of Keller & Co., Saturday, to view the
remains. The undertaker's skill had
removed all signs of the last struggle,
and the dead woman lay in her coffin
looking as natural as though asleep.
Florida Tooley, a colored girl who
was a close friend of Ada Buckner, told
this morning of some of the dreadful
scenes she had been a witness to when
living with Ada, and when McCracken
had abused and threatened to kill her
if she did not return to him. He seems
to have made her existence a night nightmare
mare nightmare of terror the last few months of
All who knew her, white and colored,
say she was a smart, industrious and
well behaved girl, and did not in the
least deserve her fate.
Her mother, Louise Lindsey, has
been removed to her own home near
the market, and will recover unless
complications set in.
