for averting the threatened railroad

After continued conferences be

described as having narrowed down
to the concrete result that the rail
roads' committee is willing to accept
an eight-hour day, but in return will
ask the assurance of getting increased
freight rates and that Congress will
create a permanent commission to in investigate

make public its report before a strike
vote is taken. The proposals were
communicated to brotherhood leaders,
who seemed to regard them favorably.

FLORIDA VERSUS THE WEST
Editor Star: A correspondent to
one of the Jacksonville papers, lately,
asked: "Why are there not more
farms and farmers in Duval county,
with so much uncultivated land, that
could .and should produce the things
that are being shipped into Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville from states further north?"
The same conditions are in Marion
county. Why were the Dakotas, Ne
braska, western Iowa and other states
that have notably long and hard win winters
ters winters so quickly settled, and Florida
with her superb climate, and farming
land going a begging? True, Florida
sod is inferior, but it easily produces
two crops a year.
When Mr.' A
settled in western
Iowa in ; 1880, he could buy land for
$1.25 to $12 per acre, depending upon
the location, distance from railroad,
etc. The same farms today sell for
$100 and $250 per acre. Mr. A
paid $8 per acre for. 160 acres, pay paying
ing paying one-fourth cash, balance on time.
His wealth consisted of a good team,
etc., and seed to plant. The first sea season
son season he lived in a tent. He began
plowing immediately. His first crop
was flax, which he continued planting
until it was too late to plant. Then
he struck out to earn some money
with his team and never saw his crdp
until it was time to harvest. His
crop was not fenced,, either were any
of his neighbors' crops.
Many of his neighbors had cattle,
but only the milk cows were home,
and those were picketed out by ropes.
The others were in the neighborhood
herd, which consisted of several hun hundred
dred hundred head, in care of a couple of
young herdsmen who, when crops
were harvested, brought them in,
sleek and fat, receiving from tha
owners pay for care of some. ;
By the time Mr. A- had made
his last payment, his land had earned
enough for improvement. He could
ride for miles with corn ,and small
grains on each side of the road. When
he came to a, fenced track, the fence
had been made by the owner to keep
his stock in, not to keep some other
man's stock out. And the stock was
good. It never pays to build any
fence for scrubs anywhere. Condi
tions there were good for the man
with small means to get ahead and
he advised his friends to come and do
likewise; and they came.
Now, when Mr. New Settler comes
to Florida, he canVbuy land as cheap
as he can anywhere but, as the soil
is not as prolific, he will need more
acres of land for his farm. He has
no stock, but before he can sow a
seed he must build a very good fence,
which may possibly cost as much or
more than the land. After planting, he
must stay and watch it day and night
for fear Mr. Hogman's $2 razorback
will climb over, if he cannot root un under,
der, under, and ruin the crop. Along about
February or March he must be vig
ilant, for Mr. Cowman, who has some
walking skeletons that must have
something to sustain life, fires the
range, thereby destroying what na
ture has provided to enrich the soil,
so that his cattle may get a little new
growth wire grass. Mr. Settler is
fortunate if he does rot have to do
more than rebuild half of his fence.
He wonders if it is true, when Mr.
Cowman tells him the law allows him
to fire most anything he waits to in
February and March. After becom
ing acquainted with Mr. Cowman and
Mr. Hogman, he learns that they are
pretty, good fellows just victims cf
circumstances,. Mr. Hogman does not
belong to the kind he has heard of,
who, when he goes out to round up a
hog, brings one, even if he has to
bring It with both ears cut off. He
would like to rid his stock of ticks
But what's the use? For every head
inside the fence, there are ten out
side, seeding his pasture with ticks
So, when Mr. Settler's friends write
and ask him how he likes Florida and
would he advise them to come, he an answers
swers answers by telling of the ideal climate,
sandy beaches and gems of lakes. He
also says, that if conditions were only
different so that the man of small
means, the future permanent resi resident,

digging and scratching could get a

DUST IS A DECIDED NUISANCE
In Many Cases Windows Have to Be

Log Split-Log Drag After Rains.
(By W. C PALMAR, Agricultural editor.
North Dakota Agricultural College.)
When dry weather comes the dust
from the road becomes -a great nul
sance to the housewife who lives near
the road. In many cases windows
have to be kept closed tight to lessen
the amount of dust that seeps In. The
most effective way of reducing the
dust nuisance Is the use of a split-log
drag on the road after every rain.
The road dust comes largely from the
grinding up of the turned-up edges of
ruts made by wheels and horses' hoofs.
These cannot form unless water can
stand on the roadbed and water can
not stand on the roadbed If It is kept
well crowned and" well packed as it
will be if the road drag is used regu
larly. Dragging the roads will mean
a good deal to the housewife, as well
as to travelers and those who have to
haul to and from the market.

How a sensational newspaper re report
port report prejudices the mind of the public
against a young trained nurse, who is
placed on trial for murder, but who
is absolutely innocent of all wrong,
and how her future happiness is jeop
ardized by what is supposed to have
been one false step, is said to be
shown in a most gripping and enter entertaining
taining entertaining manner in "Public Opinion,"
the Lasky photoplay in which Blanch
Sweet will be seen here today. An
unusual feature of the story is the
efforts of the spirit of the woman the
nurse is supposed to have poisoned, to
direct the hand of justice towards the
guilty person. Throughout the story,
until the murderer is finally forced to
confess, the spirit of the dead woman
tries to bring the guilty to justice.
Lasky's staff worked for four days
before they succeeded in taking one
scene in "Public Opinion," which ap
pears on the screen for not more than
fifteen or twenty seconds. The prob
lem was to make the spirit of the mur
dered woman enter the court room to
guide the jurors, the district attorney
and the judge in obtaining a verdict.
It was necessary that the spirit of the
dead woman appear among the people
in the court room. The scene was
gone over again and again until the
proper effect was obtained.
