Gainesville, Feb. 9. The increase

Mr. L. II. Highfill, of the extension

progress has been made along this
line during the past year. The 27

ed showed an average incerase of 58.54 per
cent in pure bred swine during the
year 1918. Holmes, Brevard, Taylor
and Madison led in this increase.
These records further show the very
great difference between the increase
of pure breeds and the increase of
scrubs. Twenty-three of the above
counties reported an increase of grade
and scrub' hogs averaging only 16 for
the same period. Two counties did
not report, w;hile Hernando county re reported

This increase in pure bred swine is
no doubt largely due to the, work of
the boys' pijr clubs. Records on file in

are many other places in the state,
wher half the labor and money would

The human element at the farm, as,
elsewhere, is the principal feature of
interest, and to this Mr. Blitch led
his visitors. The prison is in an en enclosure
closure enclosure called the stockade, covering
several acres and including a number
of buildings. The stockade is. a high
wooden wall, on top of which are a
number of sentry boxes, in which up
to a few months ago armed guards
stood ready day and night. They are
empty now, only some of the prison prisoners,
ers, prisoners, enjoying 'their Sunday rest, nad
climbed up in them to look around.
The big gate was not locked, but as it
was very heavy a couple of convicts
stood by to open and shut it.
The stockade -is divided into four
compartments by wide corridors run running

is the pumping station with a water
tank on top of it. In one of the com compartments

women's quarters." In two are the
barracks for the colored men, and in
one the department for white men.
Beginning with one of the colored
barracks, Mr. Blitch Jed the way thru
One thing that struck the ye at
once was a number of signs asking
the inmates to be clean and careful
with the premises. And the big word
cn top of each sign was."Please." The
superintendent's name was at the bot bottom
tom bottom ,and there was every indication
that his request was being obeyed.
The three barracks or wards for
the men were very much alike. In
each the men slept in big dormitories.
They have comfortable iron cots with
mattresses, pillows and blankets.
Each has its dining, room and kitchen
adjoining. Everything is clean.. The
floors are kept swept and are often
scrubbed, the 'tables in the", dining
rooms are scoured, the windows are
screened, and flies are conspicuous by
their absence. We have been in many
prisons, and this is the first one that
ve could not smell almost' as soon as
w e saw it. The strench arising from
the uncleanly habitation of hundreds
cf humans is absent. The prisoners
are supplied with bathing facilities
ar.d required to use them, and their
clothes are kept clean. i
The kitchens were a pleasure to
see. They are well managed and neat
almost to perfection. The Sunday din dinner
ner dinner was cooking while we were there.
Huge kettles were filled with ride,
others with gravy, meat was being
sliced from juicy hams, good whole wholesome
some wholesome bread was piled up in hills and
huge pots of coffee were steaming on
the ranges. It being Sunday,, there
was dessert also. ',
, There is a bakery presided over by
an artist in his profession. He know
how to make the best of bread and
bake it quickly. ; His huge oven would
make that of most city bakeries look
small. He took great pleasure' in
showing the visitors how he kept his
"family" of 500 or more supplied with
the staff of life.
There is a" laundry to keep, the
clothing of the prisoners clean. This
is part of the work of the women,
who also do the sewing for the big
It was Sunday, and all the prisoners
who did not have to attend to- the
necessary tasks were taking their
rest. Many, were sitting on their cots,
reading or writing, some were playing
checkers, some talking to each other
and a few asleep. Everywhere, the
superintendent went he was greeted
with plea sure and several of the pris prisoners
oners prisoners stopped him to prefer requests,
all of which received his attention.
The women'squarters were visited
last.' There are only four white wom women
en women in the "prison, and probably forty
colored girls. Thes received some of
the indulgence due to their sex, and
it was noticeable that most of them
in the space alloted for their cots in indulged
dulged indulged in the little vanities dear to
the feminine heart.
At Mr. Blitch's request, the colored
girls gathered in the dining room and
sang several songs. "Nearer, my God,
to Thee," "The Half has Never Been
Told," and other old familiar hymns
were sung with the spirit and melody
that the colored race always puts into
music. As the visitors rose the girls
bade them adieu with "God be with
you till we meet again." It was not
only a pretty but a touching farewell.

GOING BACK TO NATURE.
BY DR. W. LUCAS.
People get sick because they go away
from Nature, and the only tray to get
well is to go back. Something grows out
of the ground in the form of vegetation
to cure almost every ill. Some of these
vegetable growths are understood 'by
man, and some are not. Animals, it.
would eeem," know what to do when
they, are sick "better than men and
women. Observers have noted that a
sick horse, dog or cat will stop eating
food and seek out some vegetable
growth in the field or yard, which, when
found and eaten, often restores appetite
and health. Haven't you seen these
animals do this very thing yourself ?
r Dr.' Pierce, of Buffalo, Ni Y.t long
since found the herbs and roots pro provided
vided provided by Nature to overcome constipa constipation,
tion, constipation, and he had these vegetables col
lected and made up of Mayapple, leaves
of Aloe, root of Jalap, into little white
sugar-coated pills, that he. called Dr.'
Pierce'a-Pleasant Pellets. You must
understand .that when your intestines
are stopped up, poisons. and decayed
matter are imprisoned in your system,
and these are carried by the blood
throughout your body.. Thus does
your head ache, you get ditiy, yoa
can't sleep, your skin may break out,
your appetite declines, you get tired
and despondent. As a matter of fact,
you may get sick all over. Don't yoa
see bow useless all this suffering is T
AH that is often needed is a few of
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, whlcbT he
has placed in all drug stores for your
convenience and health. Try them, by
all means. They, are probably the vcrj
thing you need right now.
