Last night's meeting of Marion

as a cut-and-dried business session
and bid fair to get no further than
this. Post Commander Watt, at the
end of the business session, announc announced

in order. But there was no motion.
Nobody wanted to adjourn. So the
legionaries sat and swapped yarns
until late. They also got immediate
and direct action on the entertain entertainment
ment entertainment proposition. A new committee
was appointed and it met at once and
decided that on the night of the next
regular meeting of the post, the first
Thursday night in March, there will
be a chicken pillau. Every service
man in the county will be invited and
will be asked to join the post. Last
night's meeting was an enthusiastic
one, there were numerous good talks,
and it was agreed that the post should
be put on the map. An effort will be
made to establish a permanent club
oom for the post, with billiard tables,
ibrary, piano, victrola and other feat-
ures. With tne neip i everyooay it
believed that this can be done.
The permanent club room of the

the first time as a candidate for a

of force and power, something more
than a mere figurehead or rubber

or bad to which the people can refer
in forming judgment. As Lincoln
once said, "You can fool some of the
people all of the time, and you may
fool all of the people some of the
time, but you cannot fool all the peo
pie all of the time." The people may
be fooled in their first estimate of a
man, who is comparatively unknown
to a majority of them, but after he
has served them for six years at
Washington in the fierce light of
publicity which is turned upon their
public servants in that city, they can
not again be fooled. They have taken

Secretary Daniels probably thought
he was putting a black mark on Ad Admiral
miral Admiral Sims when he said that officer
had spent sixteen of his twenty-five
years of duty on shore. Admiral Sims,
like other naval officers, has to go
where he is sent, and six of his six sixteen
teen sixteen years of shore duty were served
under the administration of Secretary
Daniels. Any one to read Daniels'
remarks about Sims would suppose
that the admiral chose his own sta
tion in London during the war. But
he did not make any such choice, as
every man in the navy knows. He
went to London because the navy de
partment, which Daniels takes the
credit of directing, sent him there.

real constructive work. That great

chairman of the committee on trans

his influence is seen in the equaliza equalization

ports, which was bitterly fought by
northern ports who did not want their
export business taken away from

In Florida the hog raiser finds May
and June the hardest months in which
to have feed for his animals. It is the
season between the late winter and
the early summer crops, and usually
finds many farmers short on feed or
entirely out. Special planning against
such a mishap should have been done
before now, but there is yet time to
do something. Rape, put in right
away, on rich, moist soil will make
good pasture for May if the spring
weather is not too hot and dry. The
kind of land used for cabbage and
rutabagas is required for rape. As
a rule this crop is not sufficiently fer fertilized
tilized fertilized for anything like best results.
Four hundred pounds of a fertilizer
having a large content of pneumonia
will pay well, and should produce a
growth two feet high that will lap in
rows spaced thirty inches apart. But
those who have oats planted can do
better by arranging to let the hogs
have part of them in combination with
pearl (cat-tail) millet, which should
be planted about Feb. 20th. Early in
May, when the oats are in the "dough"
stage, the hogs should be turned in
and allowed to have the oats and mil
let together. This mixture of grain
and green forage will give splendid
results, and an acre of it should sup
ply ten hogs for 60 days. Then by
July 1st, cowpeas, peanuts and sor
ghum can be ready if planted about
the first of March. Be careful not to
graze oats too long if grain is wanted
Often times roses blight in the
summer and the flower buds form, but
do not open. The remdy is to prune
out all old and dead wood now and
spray with Bordeaux mixture. This
can be made at home of lime and blue blue-stone

As a result of the light crop in the
north, prices of Irish potatoes are
high and will likely climb higher. It
seems that this should be a good year
for the Florida farmer to plant this
crop. But seed are scarce and no time
should be lost in securing them. The
recent heavy rains will no doubt make
it necessary for the potatoes, already
planted in the big potato producing
sections of the state, to be replanted
and this will serve to intensify the de demand
