Matt Reif Says Farming is More Profit Profitable
able Profitable in Marion County.
Matt Reif, who has been in Marion
county since 1913, says that farming
is more profitable in Florida than in
Illinois. Mr. Reif is from Kewanee,
111. For a given amount of capital
invested the farmer can make a
greater return in Florida, says Mr.
Reif, who gives this as his opinion
after seven years of farming near
Martin in this county. The reason for
this is that the climate of Florida
gives the farmer a longer growing
period, making possible the planting
of more crops in a year, and making
it possible to follow any crop that
fails with another crop the same sea season.
son. season. Since coming to Marion county
Mr. Reif has paid for his land, put
substantial improvements on it, and
put money in the bank. He says that
he would have done even better if he
had possessed more capital.
Mr. Reif believes that successful
farming must be built upon a -basis
of livestock. He believes in putting
back into the soil as much or more
than is taken from it. This fall,
therefore, he intends building a con concrete
crete concrete barn for his cattle, not because
cattle need any housing in Florida but
for the purpose of getting manure
with which to replenish the fertility
of the soil. He will also build a con concrete
crete concrete manure vat, following a plan
that he has himself worked out. He
has a herd of grade cattle on his
farm, headed by a pure-blooded Aberdeen-Angus
bull. He believes in cover

Mr. Watt's primary concern is to
obtain a voice for Australia at the
time the Anglo-Japanese alliance is

circles the alliance will be renewed
by its own terms without discussion.
However, he voiced his apprehensions
in the following manner:
"Australia always will be for the

The world center of the future will
be in the Pacific and the three coun

"Great Britain is our mother coun

charges brought against Mr. Hardee
is that the money interests are behind
him. Because he was president of a
small bank in his home town was no
reason why the money intersts were
behind him. Another charge is that
certain papers are supporting 'him.
But the speaker declared that "certain

of the state press, and why did they
support him ? Because they were tired

Hardee made during his talk was to

Experts are good expert advice is

In our issue of April 22 we publish published

Geological Survey in which the possi possibility
bility possibility of findin goil in Florida v.as
discredited, though personally we are
inclined to question the accuracy of
that report, and bearing on this sub subject,
ject, subject, Mr. William T. Wells of Mel Melbourne,
bourne, Melbourne, Fla., referring to this item
from the Geological Survey, writes as
"On page 127 of issue of this week
you seem to favor the idea that there
is no oil in Florida.
"I know this is entirely wrong, as
I have oil here on the East Coast, and
it is coming up in the deep well on my
home place continually. I also have
'oil sand' and black iron sand (mag (magnetic
netic (magnetic oxide) and asphalt on my lands
south of here. All these go to show
that there is oil here, but of course
we do not yet know how much.
"The well in Sumter county was
net sunk deep enough to make a fair
test, as it is on the apex of the Ap Appalachian
palachian Appalachian spur which makes into
Florida, and has its highest point
about Ocala, and then slopes down
rapidly to the south.
"The well at Waycross was on the
east slope of the Appalachian range,
where geologists have always claimed
there was no oil.
"In this lower part of Florida we
are on the south slope of the spur, and
the Trenton rock is said to have been
found near Orlando at about 2000
feet, and if the money had not given
out the men drilling the well would
have probably struck the oil seam.
Our great trouble in South Florida is
that we have not had money enough
to make any real hunt for oil, as little
stockholders soon get impatient and
fall down and refuse to keep up the
work. I had reason to believe last
fall that big men who have operated
heavily in Texas, and are there yet,
would come here and put down at least
three real oil wells, going to 3000
feet or further, if necessary, but the
men referred to have been so busy
making money and big strikes in
Texas that they have not felt like
coming to an unknown field."

Special steels in a Maxwell

the car light in weight.
Thus when you call on it to

to "wrestle" with superfluous
weight, and the momentum of
the car is easily stopped.
These are steels made to

The bolshevik government seized in industry;

Trotsky, in confessing the failure of
the bolshevik program to successfully
socialize industry, eharged it to the
"sabotage of the Intellectuals." By
this he meant that the bolshevCfks

and managers of industry, out of busi business;

quiring requiring special skill and knowledge
were unable efficiently and successfully
to carry on the business. Having
.pointed out the cause of the failure,
he presented a remedy. He truly said
that the intellectuals have tbe benefit
of special training, education and ex experience,
perience, experience, and that shops and factories
filled with machines, material and
working men, cannot be run without
the skilled manager, the intelligent,
experienced foreman. But Trotsky
has not lost faith in the plan of In Industrial

belief in the theory that it can be
made to increase production. He
says that the bourgeois brains, when
forced into the factories by the state,
do not work with the same ambition
