EXCELLE11T ADVICE FROM FLORIDA'S EFFICIEIIT
SECRETARY. OF AGRICULTUIIE

Tampa, Aug. 23. Commissioner of
Agriculture McRae urges Florida
growers to hold their Sea Island long
staple cotton until Oct. 1st, before
ginning or selling. He points to the
price being now 70 cents a pound and
says he believes the growers can get
$1 a pound by holding their cotton.
.."'
McRAE'S LETTER
Department of Agriculture,
Tallahassee. Fla., Aug. 20, 1918.
" To the People of Florida and the
Growers of Sea Island Cotton in
Particular: At this time the condi condition
tion condition of the Sea Island cotton industry
is decidedly pessimistic. This condi condition
tion condition is from two main causes:
1. On the ground of the importa importation
tion importation of Egyptian cotton.
2. This imported Egyptian cotton
has made a surplus of our home
grown product, which it held by the
farmers, gjnners, merchants and
brokers, and has prevented their
marketing it. The Egyptian cotton
is now about consumed by the mills
and the surplus on hand will be taken
over by them before the first of the
year, when the flew crop will become
available. ; .f
The price of Sea Island cotton can
be held up and an optimistic condi condition
tion condition be maintained if our farmers will
hold back the ginning of their cotton .j
till after October 1st, and then re
strict their selling to only a portion
of their crop at a time.
South Carolina, Georgia and Flor
ida grown Sea Island cptton is ;worth
$1 a pound. It can be made to bring
that price by all working together.
The market quotation shows, around
70 cents per pound with no demand
for the cotton. The farmers would
be losers at this price when we con consider
sider consider the high price of labor, the boll
weevil and other things with which
they have to contend.
Fail to work in co-operation now
and the prices will slump. The farm farmers,
ers, farmers, ginners, merchants and bankers
will go bankrupt. There is nothing to
gain by hurriedly putting on the
market your Sea island cotton. 'The
seed may lose some in weight, but if
the cotton is well store'd before gin ginning
ning ginning the lint is very much improved.
The loss of weight in seed will be
more than overcome in favor of bet better
ter better prices for better lint. V
This appeal is made to all concern concerned
ed concerned in the Sea Island cotton industry
with one purpose only in view: Keep
the' price of this necessary staple up
and save the industry.
Yours respectfully,
. W. A. McRae,
Commissioner of Agriculture

EQUALIZING TAXES

Says the Tampa Times:
"It is a very strong argument for
state equalization that Tax Collector
Stripling of Marion county made in
an interview in the Times yesterday
when he said that his own county
should be assessed at $12,000,000 in instead
stead instead of $7,500,000, Alachua at f 11,-
000,000 instead of $8,000,000 and
Lake at ; $5,500,000 instead of $11,-
000,000. Mr. Stripling is well in informed
formed informed and very likely knows condi conditions
tions conditions in the district he. speaks of as
well as any man.
"Is it any wonder that Hillsborough
county tax payers protest against a
30.6 j per cent, raise when Marion
county, in the view of its own tax
collector, should have been assessed
50 per cent, higher than' it was ? And,
of course, no one could blame Lake's
taxpayers if they protest on an as
sessment that is 100 'per cent too high.
We do not know what remedy Col
lector Stripling proposes for such a
condition, but certainly there should
be one.
"Equalization of some sort, is the
thin but there are various kinds.
"Separation of the sources of state
and local taxes is one but the Times
imagines such a solution would meet
with great opposition from the rail
roads and other public utilities that
would naturally be called on to pay
the state assessment.
Personnel of the Tax Commission
"Placing power in the hands of the
state tax commisssion to equalize be
tween counties is the solution favored
by that body, but the personnel of
past tax commissions to speak plain plainlyhas
lyhas plainlyhas been an argument against

Just a bit of heaven granted;
You i were likewise thus impressed,
And ere this I know you've guessed
That the dearest name, and sweetest,
Purest, broadest and completest,
Fairer far than any other,
Blessed, sacred, holy "Mother."
Now in later years, however,
I should like to reconsider.
"Mother" in the long ago
Was the sweetest name, I know;.
But since I myself as "Mother"
I have changed it to another;
Joys of heaven and earth are blended,
All the sweets of life are lended,
Everything is comprehended
In my substituted word!
Ah! I wonder have you guessed it,
Ere my mother heart expressed it
That, the sacred name of "Baby"
Is the sweetest ever heard.

" That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty bard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's

buying of anything not essential to health 'and efSciency. Every ',
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and aero aero-vices,

and renewed -his allegiance to his
favorite county paper. He left with
us a new variety of velvet bean which
he says he believes is the best for the
Florida farmer. It is a dwarf plant
and the beans grow near the ground
in a bunch. It has no vine, and the
stalk is very much like the field pea
stalk, -and is fine for hay or silage
purposes. Mr. Hillman says that its
. advantage over the running bean is
that there are no vines .to climb up
over the corn stalks when planted
with corn, and that it bears very pro
lific when planted "about two feet
apart. He is very enthusiastic over
this new variety and says he believes
it will eventually take the place of the
common variety now planted as it
does not interfere in any way with
the growing corn when planted in the
same field.

; Ocala, Fla., Aug. 21, 1918.
Dear Sir: This is a personal letter;
a personal appeal to you as a citizen

the United States.. Take time to read
this, and to read it to every member
of your f amilyl Then act so that .the
entire stata will know that Mation
county is 100 per cent loyal. It is an
appeal for you, for your county, for
your country.
For you: Because it is your duty, to
make every sacrifice for your ; coun country.
try. country. Because it will encourage-you to
save, if you nave never- saved before,
and to invest safely if you have the
habit of saving. ; .": .
For your county: Because, Marion
county has gone over the top in eve
rything demanded of her; m Liberty
Loan drives, Y. M. C. A. drives, Ked
Cross, drives and in men. Because
Marion county is far, behind her quota
of $589,080 for war savings stamps,
having purchased and pledged less
than 33" per cent. Because Marion
county must purchase her quota.
For your country: Because she is
calling every -citizen to his place of
duty, either in the battle line or at
home to back the men in the battle
line that they may win and win quick
ly. You are at home and have no ex excuse
cuse excuse for not doing all you can. Amer
ica needs your money.
Remember, that even though you
should borrow to buy WSS,; there are
men--youf son3, your neighbors, your
men who are paying their debt, their
debt of loyalty to their country and
your country, paying not with cold
cash, but with blood, with life, that
which cannot be returned to them.
Think that whatever sacrifice you
may make it is as nothing to the sac
rifice our battle men are making for
you and yours while you are at home
enjoying comforts and family. If you
insist that you need not buy govern
ment securities lend money to your
government in time, of need, are you
better than the 'man who makes a
profit 'from war ? t
Act. Sign the enclosed pledge to
purchase; war savings tamps not
one, for you surely do not want that
as the nfeasure of your patriotism patriotism-hut
hut patriotism-hut all you possibly can. Send the
signed pledge slip to the undersigned.
