Great Value of Foreign Trade
to the United States

"The market of the whole world is
a steadier field than the market of
any one country," said William C.

last night in an address to the Los

"An enormous advantage of the
cultivation of the foreign field,"
said Mr. Redfield, "is that it is much
less likely to be upset by sudden
fluctuations than is our own market.
When things are dull here they may
be active yonder, and it should be re remembered

ALSO OPPOSES THE AMENDMENT
Our wise and conservative friend,
A. P. Jordan, of the Punta Gorda
Herald also opposes the amendment
to abolish the office of county treas treasurer,
urer, treasurer, and makes the following strong
argument against substituting banks
for treasurers, which was mistaken mistakenly
ly mistakenly advanced by the Tampa Times.:
"The Times persists in the idea of
substituting a bank as de facto treas treasurer,
urer, treasurer, and right here is where suspi suspicions
cions suspicions of graft would arise. The
county commissioners would have to
decide which bank should be the
custodian of the public funds; and,
no matter which bank they might
designate, there would be sundry
citizens who would intimate that the

kinds of graft than one; some are

clusters of shell islands, poking their
heads out of the sea, appeared here

peninsula. These clusters of islands
are known as the phosphate belt.
They were composed of silica, sea
shells and carbonate of lime. There
was but little vegetation on them, for
the soil had no power of production.
In the fullness of time, following the
evolutionary period, millions of
quadrupeds accumulated on these
desolate isles. Where they came from
nobody knows. They deposited large
amounts of bone and excreta, en
riching the soil and stimulating
plant life. Thousands of years pass

hundreds of bones have been dug.
