In commenting on the two recent
interceptions at Key West of infest infested
ed infested material, Plant Commissioner Wtt-
mon Newell said: "On both occas
ions black fly larvae and eggs were
found in the personal hand baggage
of passengers of passengers from
Havana, Cuba; the infestation being
upon the foliage of limes. In both
cases the limes had been secured by
the passengers for their use while en
route from Havana to points north
Also in both instances the quantity
of limes remaining upon arrival at
Key West would probably only have
been sufficient to have supplied the
passengers requirements while en
route along the East Coast of Flor Florida
ida Florida to Jacksonville. Had the inter
ceptions not been made there can; be
but little doubt that the passengers
would have thrown out of the car
window at some point along the East
Coast the lime twigs and leaves re
maining after all of the limes had
been consumed, thus possibly estab
lishing black fly infestations at sev
eral points in the citrus growing see
tion of the East Coast. It seems
that these two interceptions are of
especial interest as illustrating the
necessity for close inspection of hand
baggage as well as all other material
arriving from fly-infested ports, also
as showing the possibility of black
fly becoming established alpng the
railroad lines of Florida leading
from our principal ports of entry. In
this connection I might add that it is
rather surprising to plant board of
ficials that the black flv has not be
come established in Florida when one
considers the many channels of com com-inunication
inunication com-inunication between the islands and
the mainland. Horticultural material
infested with the black fly has been
intercepted on a number of occasions
by our inspectors. These men are
stationed at the several ports of en
try of the state and closely scrutinize
all plants and plant product ship
ments. In addition to this there are
located at Key West and Port Tampa
the two principal ports of entry thru
which fruits and vegetables- from
Cuba are imported, completely equip equipped
ped equipped fumigating houses where all fruit
and vegetables arriving from Cuba
are treated by means of hydrocyanic
acid gas. Notwithstanding all of the
precautions which are being taken to
prevent the entry of the black fly into
Florida the changes of its gaining a
foothold in the state are nevertheless
great. Fruit growers are urged,
therefore, to report to the state plant
board or to the experiment station,
both at Gainesville, any condition
found in their plantings which they
regard as suspicious. By so doing an
infestation of black fly may be dis discovered
covered discovered in its incipiency and prompt?
and vigorous measures taken to

OF THE RED ARMY
The Chicago Tribune publishes the
following dispatch from Eugene
Szattamary, a German 1 journalist,
who is representing the Tribune cn
the East Prussian frontier, giving anl
account of a visit to the Russian
army now invading Poland."
Herr Szattamary writes from Gra-
jevo, a town of 4000 population,
about twenty-five miles southwest of
Augustown, just over the East Prus Prussian
sian Prussian frontier in the Polish republic.
His dispatch follows: 1 i
"Grajevo, Poland, Aug." 3. Today
we crossed the East Prussian frontier
to Grajevo, where we found three
regiments of Russian cavalry and
frontline troops. Now that I have
seen both sides, my wonder is in increasing
creasing increasing how the Russians could have
won the war.
"Before going across the line I was
told by Luthuanian guards that the
Russians were an army of beggars,
but I did not expect to find Budenny's
lengendary knights, who have blazed
the way f roni the Crimea to Kiev and
from Kiev to Grodno, such a ragged,
starved, disreputable looking crowd
as they are.
"One of the cavalrymen was dress dressed
ed dressed in mufti, while his companion was
in uniform. I saw round hats, bear bearskin
skin bearskin hats (the temperature is about
80 Fahrenheit), derbies and slouch
hats, sport clothes, fur coats and
those peculiar caps that the Polish
"I saw one British uniform and
seven Polish hats and uniforms cn
the first few Russians that I met.
Surely tit was a nondescript lot, but
they had one thing in common the
red star insignia of the red army,
which each wore on his blouse or cap.
"The men were dirty and ragged,
and the small Cossack horses were
not groomed, but were caked with
the mud of a thousand miles. I saw
300 horses and their riders,, but not
a one of them was dressed or fitted
according to the standard of either
side of the war in France. Only rifles
and ammunition were in plenty and
.one Cossack showed me a Japanese
carbine and bullets, and even a knap knapsack,
sack, knapsack, proud souvenir of a bolshevbt
raid in Siberia.
"An iron discipline everywhere pre prevailed.
vailed. prevailed. The officers wrere well dressed
in uniforms. With them was a civil civilian
ian civilian commissar who is really superior
to the officers and watches them.
When the Russians pulled out of Gra Grajevo
jevo Grajevo they requisioned supplies, but
they paid in soviet rubles and did not
plunder or enfiscate anything. Only
one car of flour was broken into.
"On looking over the Russian army
I cannot understand what has been
urging them from victory to victory i
throughout the last two years. Per Perhaps
haps Perhaps it is their discipline. Perhaps
it is fear of starvation if they do not
win. I know the men feel they have
to conquer new territory in order toi
obtain food because there is none afe
home. That is why I am doubtful
if the army will quit conquering "when
an armistice is signed and word is
given to return to Russia." j
The delegation of congressmen who
went on a picnic excursion to ; th'e
Philippines, to decide on the capacity
of the Filipinos for self-government,
have been dined and wined by the
Tagalog politicians of Manila, and
have consequently decided that the
Filippines are ready for independence.
We doubt that they are, but we wish
the United States could get rid of
A good many, of those philanthro philanthropists
pists philanthropists who want that twenty-mill ;.on
dollar amendment to the constitution
are just plumb sure that no legisla legislature,
ture, legislature, even among the many yet un unborn,
born, unborn, would take a base advantage of
the people by levying such, vast sums
on them unless absolutely necessary.
Let's not tempt them with such an
enticing bait. We are honest, aw awfully
fully awfully honest, but if twenty million
dollars, or even less money, was with within
in within our reach, we might change out
ideas about some tihngs.
Mr. A. C. Blowers has returned
from the meeting at St. Augustine,
where so many editors and members
of the next legislature were invited,
with the idea of impressing on them
the desirability of passing that
amendment that, will enable the leg legislature
islature legislature to pile another twenty mill million
ion million dollars on the state debt every
time it'meets. : Mr. Blowers said the
crowd had a. good time,, and it seem seemed
ed seemed to him like a large proportion of
the legislators-elect present were in
favor of the amendment. No doubt
they are- twenty million dollars
would give each one of them the
chance of his life to graft. Blowers
frankly told the crowd that if the
election was held right now, the
amendment would not receive a hun
dred votes in Marion county.
If the Red army overruns Poland
it will of course try to penetrate into
Germany. A mere look into that well well-ordered
ordered well-ordered land will of course be an ir irresistible
resistible irresistible incentive to the hungry,
ragged hordes of the bolsheviki. The
Germans will fight, of course; no civ civilized
ilized civilized nation would refuse them the
right. They will very likely drive the
Reds back, and when they do they
will have their huge military mac-hire
again. Then they wilt tear up the
treaty of Versailles, annex Poland
and set themselves to pushing east eastward.

the indecision of and dissension
among the Allies.

Prince's Speech Consisted of Verses
From the Koran, but Audience
Didn't Know It.
It Is Interesting to recall that dur during

Feisal of the new kingdom of Syria,
his memory of the Koranic verses
stood him In good stead. In London,
at a dinner In the Guildhall, the prince,
who was the guest of honor, and wbo
knew little French and less English,
was called upon to reply to the toast
of his health. Beside him sat his
friend and mentor. Colonel Lawrence,
Oxford professor and oriental scholar,
to whom he whispered as he rose to
acknowledge the lord mayor's speech.
Colonel Lawrence nodded his assent,
and the prince addressed his audi audience
