Chairman of County Commis-
sioners Makes a Statement.


To the Editor:


It has been erroneously stated that
the County Cominibsioners have
planned the distribution of the bond
money. I wish say in this connect-
ion that, excepting in so far as the
advertisement for tile election con-
cerns this question, no plans have
been adopted in any way. No roads
have been laid out, no promises
have been made as to where roads
will be laid out. The Commission-
ers have not pledged anything to
any section, or to any person.
Every section of tile county is fairly
represented on the Board of Conmins-
sioners. Your interests will there-
fore be carefully looked after. No,
promises as to the width of any of
the proposed roads have ever been
made to any one by myself or the
Comina sioners.
[Signed.J I. C. STEPHENH.

Phillips & Sons, of 277 Washing-
ton St. N. Y.. who are ilnlmbers of
the National League of Coinmmission
Merchants., are a new concern to
many of the "Item" family of ship-
pers but not a new concern. They
are rated tie way they should be to
have their ad. In our directory and
in the recent Georgia peach deal
they were a big factor. Their repre-
sentative in Florida is C. J. Cren-
shaw who is no stranger here and a
hustler from lhis heart. He carried
a copy of an account sale made a
grower here some two years ago 100
boxes grape fruit that netted the
grower $700.00 and it is needless to
say put othor representatives out of
business. At that time Mr. Cren-
shaw was with another house. He
will call on his San Mateo friends in
the interest of Phillips & Sons in
about 10 days.

Mr. and Mrs. T. S. Quinby and
Miss Jessie House, of Oloversvillo,
N. Y., will spend the winter in Ban
Mateo. They have leased rooms of

Mrs. J. S. Rowley after a pleasant
suilnner spent in N. Y.. state. and
the past two weeks with her daughi-
ter, Mrs. Beach, in Savannah, is ex-
pected home to-day.

The F. E. C. Ry., handled :i6 cars
from the Titusville cainp meeting
last Sunday and standing room was
hard to get. They ran IS cars north,
10 ears south and 8 cars over the
Sanford division.

About 150 cars of oranges and
grape fruit went out of Florida last
week. No doubt this anmount of
fruit out of the way of the better
fruit going later will help market
coliditiont) later on. Let thile green
fruit roll, who ever wants to-the
more theI bottei for the grower wlho
holds.

The San Mateo Fruit Co., had
notice this week of the forwarding
of 119 boxes of oraiges to McCor-
mick, Hubb & Co., of N. Y., via the.
Clyde ship Iroquois. As the Fruit Co.
has shipped no oranges at all so far
they are looking for a nice XInma
present from McCormick, Hubb &
Co., for some body's else 119 boxes.

A. Cancelio, of Phimladelphia, one
of the old line IIouses, and making a
specialty of citrus fruits for the past
80 years, has an ad. in this issue. If
any of our fruit grower readers want
to use the Philadelphia market it
would be a good idelto send for Mr.
Cancelmno's stencil and give him a
trial. His location at 118 Dock St.,
is one of the best.

Messrs. W. J. & S. H. Davenport,
of 94 Park Place N. Y., have an ad.,

The Sanford Chlroniele says:
"One hundred and ninety families
are coming to Sanford this year from
Canada." As one of thel Tilne-.iHer-
ald correspondents says: "Florida
may not be ready, for various rea-
sons, for new settlers." The Item
would call hil attention to the fact
that they are coming by the hun-
dreds each year and if he and his
section don't want any of them and
will make no effort to get them, by
making the improvements necessary
to attract the settler, they will cer-
tainly go to sections that are more
attractive, whether they would doas
well financially or not as they would
by coping this way.

The place is Incorporated, but no
town taxes have been collected for
over ten years; the many public Im-
provements are made by the puSh and
generosity of the citizens and pulling
together. The state and county taxes
are about 20 mills on about one-third
valuation. I t I -,
Good hunting and fishing, deer, tur-
key, ducks'and quail, black bass and

Good boarding house, Byrlyn Place,
open winters; rates eight to ten dol-
lars per week; $2.00 day.
Six thousand people went through
ihe San Mateo I'ruit Company's grove
bere last season.


One of the best advatages San
Mateo enjoys is transportation; being
on both river and rail is an advantage
that few Florida points enjoy. The
past season, for instaone, railroads
and terminals at Jacksonville were
. more than congested and fruit ship.
ped from points down the central
part of the state was, in some oases,
three weeks getting to Jacksonville,
on route to northern markets, and
did not bring enough to pay freight,
while San Mateo shippers, at same
time. would ship from here one day
and have fruit go out of Jacksonville
on the Clyde ship the next. This Ut-
tie matter this season alone was
I,>* worth thousands of dollars to the San
Mateo growers and the homeseeker
will do well to bear in mind trans.
S* portation and cheap rates that come
with competition, in selecting a Flor-
Ida location.
The population is about U0, who
Scam mostly from the northern states.

The improved methods of transe
portation, which are fast widening
the limits of New York's business
energy, will woon embrace a radius of
fifty miles, within which are located
2,364 different towns and cities whose
total population, with that of Greater
New York, is equal to fully on*-flfth
of the population of the United
states.
When It 9s realized that the perma-
nent increase In population of New
York last year was about 400,000. a
city the size of Clevelan4d Ohio,-
some Idea of the tremendous growth
of 4he city can be appreciated. One
of the assurances of a continued and
permanent growth is to be found la
the 50,000 marriages that take place
every year.
Besides this permanent Increase
New York Is entertaining an average
of over 150,000 transient visitors ev-
ery day, andt som so seasons, when
the hotel accommodations are taxed
to their utmost, fully 300,000 people
are chronicled in their home papers
as "spending a few days In New
York on pleasure ati business."-

"The Star-Spangled Banner."
A correspondent suggests that the
song "The Star-Spangled Banner"
should be replaced by one akin to
Tennyson's "May Queen," and that
for the\ flag itself, "with its rady,
crude, glaring red, white and blu;,"
there be fabricated a delicate ban-
ner of shrimp pink, Nile green and
moonlight on the lake. Of course It
Is indulging in Irony, but there have
been plenty of things to stir him
to warmth. The national emblem is
good enough. Among al' the flags
that fly It is fairest to see.
Americans are proud of the flag
,not alone for that which it repre-
sents, but for that which it is. They
will continue to feel this way. and
they will sing their sentiments In
such songs as have been provided.
Any time a genius shall supply a bet-
ter song, they will be grateful, and
sing that. too. But "The Star-
Spangled Banner" has stood the test
so long, and expresses so much s'.
well. that there is unlikely to be a
new set of words and music to sup-
plant it. It has been found inspiring
in war and in pea(e, and with all Its
faults the people love it still.-Phila-
delphia Ledger.
Mollere's Misanthrope.
A literary problem periodically de-
bated by lovers of Mollere has been
the identity of that famous type of
Alceste in the great dramatist's "Le
Misanthrope." The plausible sus-
picion that the character was sug-
gested by the Marquis de Montausler.
Mareclhal de Capap and Governor of
Colmar under Louis XIII., and later
the preceptor of Louis XIV., would
seem to be henceforth beyond all
doubt in consequence of a curloul dis-
covery made by M. Leon Lefebvre
during his recent examination of the
Colmar archives. He has found a
voluminous correspondence exchang-
ed between the Marquis and the town
officials, and he noted in the gover-
nor's letters several passages virtual-
ly identical with the well known
verses of "Le Misanthrope." He con-

for hard roads, and as it requires but
a trifle over one mill more to make
the $11,000, we have no doubt but
what the commissioners can make It
up as fgured by taking one-half mill
from general fund of 2 5-8; one-quar-
ter mill from general road mainte-
nance of 1 1-4; one-quarter mill from
general bridge maintenance of 1 1-8.
lven if we had to pay this mill in
extra taxes, who would object if we
gset something to show %br it?
The commissioners have made their
final payment on Rice Creek ,bridge,
and have this money now to use for
other purposeees. They would also
have about 61,600 now being paid the
ferry over and above Its revenue. One

Some people say if the bond issue
had been $350,000 instead of $190,-
000 they would vote for bonds. The
chances are that these people would
be the very first to kick against bonds
because it would raise their taxes. If
they didn't kt'k against them it would
be because they would know that the
voters of Putnam county would for
the same reason.

Which Is provided for, together with

this Intgrest could be used for other
purposes.
We find the expense would be not
far from $5,450, which Includes in-
terest on cost. Our figures, 10 per
cent, for keeping up wood work came
from Captain Will Boyd, who knows
as much or more about wharf build-
ing here as any man. He Is willing
to contract under bond for damages
to keep up the wood work at 10 per
cent.
H. A. Ford, former superintendent
of the old Florida Southern Railway,
has had some experience in iron
bridges. They need paint three times
in ten years and are practically inde-
structible. Two men, no doubt, could
be found in your section at $500 each
per year to handle the draw.
Now, the old ferry boat takes In,
In fares, over $1,000 per year, and
any one who stops and thinks at all
knows that the bridge will do at the
very least six times the business, or
$6,000, and people In Palatka, Hast-
ings, Federal Point, East Palatka and
Ban Mateo, that we have asked, say
that it will do at least U2 times as
much. People in all these places use
the bridge a good many times a year,
and the people who do use the ferry
now would use the -bridge six times
as often, because they can go and
come when they please and not drive
one to five miles and find the ferry
broken down. There are not many
people In Palatka who own a horse
or have money enough to hire one but
what would drive to Hastings, Pede-
ral Point or San Mateo Sunday af-
ternoons, for Instance, and we needn't
mention the people on this side that
will be driving across to Palatka.
Our tourist friends haven't much else
to do but drive in winter, and with
the bridge and hard roads they will
get out and see the country. If this
isn't what we all want, for heaven's
sake how else do you expect to get
new settlers?
Some people object to the 'bond is-
sue, because they say it will increase
axes.
Any school boy can figure out the
amount needed-$11.000 per year, to
pay interest and provide the sinking
und as per estimates made, for the
1190,000 issue.

Jacksonville, Fla.-Mr. A. W. Fritot,
a prominent railroad official of this
city, accompanied by his wife and lit-
tle son, has arrive home from an
extensive tour.
Mr. Fritot visited several states in
the northwest and then made a tour
of the principal points of Interest in
the east. Speaking of the prospects
for a good tourist season he said:
"At every point I visited I found
a strong inclination toward visiting
Florida this winter. Especially was
this evident in the north, where many
who have formerly spent their win-
ters in California 'now prefer Florida.
The trip to California is long and te-
dious as compared with the trip to
Florida. I found the people in the
east enjoying unprecedented prosper-
ity. Many of them are agreulturists.
in fact agriculture Is the chief pursult
or occupation out there. The crops
have been good; they have more mon-
ey than possibly ever before, and nat-
urally they are Onai. to a wU M

A prominent Melrose man says he
is in favor of bonds for court house
and hard roads, and if Palatka was
on the other side of the river he
would be in favor of the -bridge. If
this was the case and the people on
this side then showed the same spir-
it he shows, he would certainly be
likely to swim that river when he
wanted to come to town. The Item
thinks that the gentleman didn't

Strictly Pmh Hen Fruit.
A peculiar apparatus recently in-
vented is shown in the illustration
below. The inventors-two Western
men-term it a mechanism for dis-
pensing eggs and other commodities.
The apparatus was especially designed
for use in cafes, restaurants and sim-
ilar places. The machine has the


etsrMl outline and cunfiguratlon of
bn in the act of setting, the con-
!truction and relative disposition of
the several parts being such that
.when. an operating lever is depressed
an egg will be deposited at the rear
of the nest and in a position to be
conveniently removed. Of course, the
hen fruit thus handed out does not
carry a guarantee to the effect that it
is strictly fresh; but nobody will be
able to deny that they are not fresh
9 ld." The apparatus was designed,
also, to be used as a vending machine,
*bi deposit of a coin causing the hen
S to lay an egg. When performing the
latter operation this near-hen dis-
plays all the attributes of the live
l, tiltUlUng her head and tall and
prosuclng a sound resembling the
k eaakle of the genuine bird.-Wash-

Great Difference.
Long after midnight the suburban
man sat on his front step listening to
the dismal howls of a restless canine.
"Awful racket," commented the big
policeman as he sauntered up the
avenue.
"Terrible," agreed the man on the
steps.
"Those howls are enough to raise
the dead."
"Well, I should say so.'
"Make the cold shivers creep up
and down your spine."
"They are fierce."
"Wonder you don't make a com-
plaint."
"Well, I am just waiting."
"May I ask what you are waiting
for?"
"Sure! I am waiting to find out if
that is my dog or my neighbor's dog.
If it is my dog-well, you know we
all have to put up with unseemly
noises these hot nights, but it it is
my neighbor's dog-blamed If I don't
shoot him myself."-Chicago News.

What Is Socialism ?
Debes Calls It the Next Natural 8rtage in the Evoe,
lutlon t I Humanity.
By Lincoln Steffens.
OU know the old stock definition of Socialism," Debs said. "1The
co-operative control and the democratic management of the
means of production.' I'll try another: Socialism is the next
natural stage In the evolution of human society; an organiza-
tion of all men into an ordered, co-operative commonwealth in
which they work together, consciously, for a common purpose:
the good of all, not of the few, not of the majority, but of


all." ,


"How would that Induce the worker to do good work?" I asked.
"Well, if there were no inspiration in the idea of a common good there
would be the assurance of a full return for the product of his labor."
"But how could such a complicated system give any such' assurance?"
"By abolishing capitalists and all non-producers. Men would be paid
according to their social use; skill and ability would count, but so would the
disagreeableness of a job; to get it done. society would have to make it
attractive somehow-wit.h short hours or big pay. For men would be free,
ybu understand; much freer than now, and not only industrially, but political-
ly, Intellectually, religiously-every way. We would have no churches that
didn't dare preach Christianity. But the point is t-hat nobody would get such
pay as Rockefeller gets now."
"But Rockefeller did a service, you say yourself," I retorted, "when he
socialized the oil industry."
"Yes," said Debs, "but hasn't he been paid enough? A billion, they say.
That's too much; but let him have it. All we Socialists say is that he should
not be allowed to buy up railroads and mines and natural resources, and
neither should oil consumers go on 'paying his children fortunes for genera-
tions. No, we must get rid of the Rockefellers, and keep only the organization
the/ build up."-Everybody's.

SMoral Strength Necessary

T o' Victory in War
IBy Oen. Kuropatkln.
H E recent contest in Manchuria was a popular war for the Japan-
ese, but not for us. The Korean question, and the question of
naval supremacy on the waters of the Pacific, involved vital
Japanese interests, and the immense importance of these inter-
ests was so clearly understood and so fully appreciated by the
Japanese people that the war for their protection was a national
war. Japanesu soldiers, deeply conscious of the bearing that
their exploits might have on the future of the country, fought with a self-
sacrifcing devotion and a stuL)ornness that we had never seen In any war
i la which we had previously been engaged. Sometimes, in villages that we had
taken by assault, a handful of Ja.panese soldiers would barricade themselves
S l native houses and die there rather than retreat or surrender. Japanese
oIt ers who fell into our hands-ewvt wounded officers-generally committed
a suicide. * In some qases Japa&ese mothers even killed themselves,
when their sons, on account of wealkueua or ill-health, were denied admission
f to the army. Hundreds of men volunteered to undertake the most desperate
enterprises, in the face 9f certain death; and many officers and soldiers, be-
bre going to the front, had funeral ceroemnltes performed over their bodies,
IS order to show that they intended to di! for their native land * *
iftary v bltory shows that, in all warn, the antagonist who is strongest
Swisel the victory. The only exceptions are such contests as that be-
the English and the Boers in Sout3i Africa nad that between the north
md the south In America. The English _ere weaker than the Boers morally,

Bob said at the breakfast table,-
"Now, you know, daddy, I -must
be Almost ive years old, for I've
been four and a half such a long
time; and Dorotay must be nearly
seven, and-I want to ask you some-
thing, daddy."
"Well, why don't you ask?" said
his father, paying attention.
"It's so important. I thought about
it in bed till I was quite tired Just
thinking."
"For pity's sake!" said his, father.
"t'o can get tired thinking," said
Bob, "can't you?"
"Yes," said his father. "What wa3
it all about?"
"I want to know, daddy, I want to
know If you don't think you could
let Dorothy and me go down to play
by the brook. We're getting big, you
see, and It's Saturday morning; and
we wouldn't go near that deep place
below the little island. We wouldn't
go down as far as the island, would
we, Dofle?" And Dorothy said, "No,
daddy." So Bob asked,-
"Do you think you could let us
begin 'playing by the brook, and see
if we would be careful?"
"No," said Mr. Mason. But both
ohbdren looked at him without mak-
ap any fuss, because they weren't
S quite sure-there migat be a joke in
their father's mind. They waited

..by twelve, sharp."
So when be came he found Doro-
a thy and Bob waiting on the steps
and their mother ready, too, and
Peggle. too. Peggle was Mrs Ma-
y son's Boston terrier. She was the


only one of the party that had no
lunch-basket to carry,-too little she-
was, and too lively. Everybody In
the family loved Peggle, and she
loved them.
Mr. Mason had two baskets. Bob
and Dorothy carried some of their
favorite things to dig with and play
with.
"Fall Into line!" said Mr. Mason.
So they started. Poggle didn't fall
Into line very well. Round the house
they went and on past the stable,
then down hill through thick grass
with big clovers and with hundreds
of grasshoppers; then over a fen-ce
and through a rough potato patch and
a field where there wasn't much be-
sides pumpkins scattered around and
two men putting them into a cart.
By the lowest part of that field ran
the brook,-the jollest brook!-live--
ly, making a good deal of noijo
around stones. and bubbling and shin-
ing-you might have thought it was
very -l:td to see the family.
"I never saw such a good brook as
this one'" screamed Bob.
"No more did 1, Hob." said hit
father. There were big stones and
little, and bushes with red berries;
and there was every kind of pretty"
ferns and things. it seen,., growing
along the banks and even in the
middle. and so many st(p'ii1ng stone-,
that you could walk on t.hmn right
across the brook In some places('. And
(he sunshine was so bright!
The mother and father sat down
for awhile. Then they all four
spread out the luncheon: and Mr.
Mason and Bob made a small cam p-
fire on a rock and heated things.
They took some time over the,
luncheon; but Bob was planning a
bridge in his mind., a bridge from
the shore to a large stone in the
brook. He told Dorothy about it,
and she said she would help. And
she did. They had splendid fun work-
ing hard on the bridge. And what do
you think! Just as they were going
to call their mother and father to
see it, Peggie came tearing back from
a chase after a squirrel, and shli
dashed into the water and right
against their bridge so hard that she
knocked it almost to pieces.
Bob and Dorothy were o disap-
pointed that they couldn't say 't
word: they felt as if they should
cry. It was pretty bad of Pegghe,
but of course she didn't know any
better.
Anyway, just then Mr. Mason came
along and said: "I have a scheme.


Let's make a double bridge, one part
to go from this short to the little *
island down there and the other part
from the island across to the other
shore, over those very fast rapids."
How they did work! Of course,
you can build a much finer bridge
if you have a big man to work with
you. And Dorothy hAd some little
dolls-three-with her. She often car-
rled them in her pocket. When they
finished the first parr of the bridge,
she put two dolls on it, walking over.

Dorothy sat down on a rock near
to the double bridge and the dollar
"I never thought," she said. "that

Newport a Deserted Village.

After a day on the plantation Simp-
S*oa discovered that the late proprie.
tor had tarried on his property but
S tW month, then placed It In the
bands of his agent to dispose of at
S y pries. And Incidentally 8imp-
so' en found that the late proprietor
wa the fourth for that year; he de-
cided to investigate.
lHe was returning late one after-
noon from the cane fields along the
rivef which ran through a part of his
plantation. His, horse was one of
the best and the trail through the-
fields was In good condition, but it
was a long ride, and he knew it
would be after dark before he reach-
ed his hacienda house. Already the
shadows were stealing through the
twilight, drawlWg down the curtain
of darkness which precedes the play
of the moonlight. Suddenly he stop-
ped, halted his horse with a sharp
check and listened. No, It was noth-
ing, and yet he could have sworn
that 'e heard a ory of distress.
He spurred his horse on-then,
there It was again-to the right. Low,
like a dying moan, it stole over his
senses; he first felt It in his finger
tips, then It crept cautiously up his
ainm-his heart stopped still. He
shivered, though the air was warm.
Involuntarily he checked his horse
again, and listened. No-it was not
a woman's cry; it was not mature,
; though It was not liko that of any

COMPULSORY INSURANCE.
The Part Played By the Government
In the System Germany Uses.
"The Idea that the German associa-
tions for insuring workingmen are
managed by bureaucrats sitting in
heavily upholstered and red-tape-em-
broidered offices in Berlin is com-
pletely wrong," says William Hard,
in Everybody's. "All that the gov-
ernment does under the German sys-
tem is this (and here is the gist of
the whole Compulsory Insurance
idea):
"The government takes each in.
dustry and each trade in the em-
pire and says to the people who own
it:


"You must form as aocident-Insur-
ance association whioh will Include
all the employers In your industry
and in your trade. And you inust
pay compensation to all your injured
workmen according to a fixed scale.
We wpn't stop to try to divide the
blame for accidents between you and
your workmen. We will assume for
practical purposes that you weren't
trying to commit murder and that
they weren't trying to commit suicide.
We will assume that accidents are ac-
cidents. And we will make each
trade bear the burden of its own ao
cidents. We will make each trade
add the cos4 of ts burned-out eye-
sockets to the cost of its burned-out
coal-grates in computing the market-
price of its product. So you must
form your accident-insurance assocla-
tion in your industry and in your
trade, and you must pay your injured
workmen the compensation fixed by
law. But that's where we stop.
Everything else rests with you. Go
ahead and elect your own officers and
'fix your own details to suit your-
selves. Invent your own safety-de-
vices. Adopt your own shop rules.
Mmlploy your own factory Inspectors.
Engage your own doctors. Build your
own hospital. Do all, or none, of
these things, as yeo please. Profit
by your own wisdom and your own
humanity In preventing accidents and
Incaurring their consequences. Lose
uonwy by your own Ltealsquy and
