high intelligence and great kindness
of disposition. He was ever ready to

well read in standard literature and
Dosted on current events. He took
great interest In agricultural affairs
and was a mine of information on all
Ita branches. The last time he was
seen In public was at the Marion

contribute as" liberally as possible, for

turned returned to you with Interest, indirectly
perhaps, but good, all the same.
It must also be remembered that It
is more than probable that there will
be a hundred or two more teachers in
town than the hotels can accommodate,
and it will be clever and patriotic for
any family who has a spare room, or
two or three of them, to put them at
the disposal of the committee for the
accommodation of the visitors. Let
our people do all they can to make
the meeting of the association a
pleasant and profitable occasion for
the city and its guests.

The Florida Citrus Exchange has its
faults, but its general object is for

Its great principle is intelligent co

Owners of automobiles are concerned
over the recent decision of the su

It will be remembered that Judge Bul Bullock
lock Bullock of this circuit decided that while
It was constitutional to tax autos kept
for hire, it was not to tax those for
private use any more than it was to
tax any other vehicle. This entirely
sensible ruling seems to be reversed by
the supreme court for several reasons,
among which is the following:
"Under the law the duty of keeping
the public roads in good condition is
cast upon the respective counties, and
It Is clearly within the power of the
legislature to require those who use
motor vehicles upon the public roads

The Lee county edition of the Tampa

this citv. who owns the property ad

the undertaking in twelve months.
The first step in improvements will
be to cut off the short turns in the

the dredge boat to be used in the
work will arrive here within the next
ten days. A short distance below the
head of the springs a forty-foot canal
will be cut throuzh to a sulphur

The sulphur springs will be walled up
and a pavilion built. A number off
boathouses will he erected along the
canal which will no doubt be much in

some places is low ami swampy, will

further overflow. The tract of land
owned by Mr. Carmiehael comprises
2.600 acres and is very ricli land. Aft After
er After the work is completed the land
along the Silver Springs run will be
cut up into quarter-acre lots and the
remainder of the tract will be divided
into ten-acre tracts.
The improvements also call for a
large park at the

which is about three
head of the springs.
The improvements when completed
will add untold value to the famous
spring which is now visited by thou thousands
