A train of cars can be shipped

Usually local railway freight trains
lay over at home stations for the

A steam vessel is always on the

ohe runs night and day, and the

Again, in improving the Okalawa

it is state-wide. It is for the whole

GOOD ADVICE TO FARMERS
Berlin, Fla., larch 2, 1914.
To the farmers who have oats: I
notice oats are beginning to show
signs of rust. You can prevent this
to a certain degree by running over
i your oats with a weeder, and after
using weeder sow from 50 to 100
pounds of nitrate of soda per acre.
If your land is good and your osfts
are thick, I would advise not to use
less than 100 pounds of nitrate of
soda per acre, and inrmed lately after
putting the soda on run your weeder
over the oats again so as to get the
land thoroughly pulverized. If you
haven't a weeder use a pig tooth
harrow, setting the teeth slanting
back to an angle of a'bout forty-five
degrees. This will serve just as good
as a weeder and probably -better -in
stiff, wet land. Don't harrow oats
if land is too wet. Some are using
a cutaway harrow on oats. If you
use this harrow keep your disc set setting
ting setting straight. This will chop through
the oats and will tear up only a
small per cent of them. I will ben
Ocala every Saturday and I make
my headquarters at the Board of
Trade. 'I keep a supply of bulletins
on various things, and would 'be glad
to meet any farmers who would like
any information or any of my work.

THE LAW ENFORCED
Tallahassee, .March 3. Governor
Traminell is determined that the
provisions of the new primary law
shall be enforced in every particular,
He has addressed a letter to the
sheriff of each of the counties of the
state requiring him to make inquir

other person who is found to be vio

The governor offers the services of
a detective to any sheriff who sees
fit to call upon him for such aid.
Governor Trammell refers to past
practices in this state wherein can
