BY MAJORITY OF 888 VOTES
THE PEOPLE DECIDE.


Successful Termination of a
Campaign for Progress
In Putnam County.
The interest in last Tuesday's elec-
tion centered almost entirely in the
$190(,0( bond proposition which was
to be decided by the voters,. and inl
the sace of our fellow townusman, S.
W. Rowley, for Railroad Comnims-
sioner, on the Republican ticket.
The committee which has had in
hand the ; management of the canm-
paign for banding the county for
public improvements, only ceased
their persistent ani commendable
work when the polls closed Tuesday
night. Their success is complete,
and their reward, we confidently be-
live, awaits them in the good that
is to come to Putnam County and to
all our people from the many neces-
sary improvements that are now
possible and will speedily be made.
Of credit for tlhe success of the
bonds each favorable voter of the
county and every worker in the
cause is due his meed, but special
note should be made of the efforts
of one man in particular. Fore and
foremost in the bond movement has
been Ueo. B. Selden, of Palatka, a
man of experience and rare business
ability. It was he who studied out
and perfected the bonding plans,
which have been passed upon" and
pronounced first-class by some of
the best financial Institutions of the
country, and he has probably de-
voted more time to the details of the
campaign than anyone else. Mr.
Selden, while one of the largest tax-
payers in the county, can receive/no
greater benefit from public improve-
ments than any other resident. Al-
most the entire output of the great
door and blind factory of which he
is president, is sold outside of the
county or dtate. His labor has been
unselfish and for the good of all.
F. following is vote for and against
bonds in all the precinots:

8. W. Rowley, for Railroad Coin-
missioner, polled 48 f ves in the
county, against Ul1l for Dunn, the
Democratic candidate.
The only contest in the county wans
C. I. Rowton, (Denm.) and John E.
Marshall, (Ro'p.) for Justice of the
Peace for the Eighth District, the
result being a victory for Marshall
by a majority of 45.

Card From Bond Committee.
The centrall (Campaign Committee,
in thie interest of the Putnam Counity
In)id improvement project, desires
to say:-The election lias taken place
and the majority for bonds has been
sufficiently large to remove any
doubt as to the result. .The Commit-
tee wants to extend a general word
of thanks to every person who en-
dorsed the issue and voted for bonds.
The Committee has had a strenuous.
time. Some have opposed tile prop-
osition, but we have never felt any
discouragement. We have main-
tained a steady, plersieent perse-
verance. The result is known to all.
The majority which has been voted
for bonds proven to us the wisdom of
the project. We have the utmost
respect for those who could not hon-
estly approve our work. We hope
that the project will ultimately
prove to these people, by virture of
the advantages to come. that it has
been for the best. The County Com-
missioners have been Instructed to
issue the bonds. A large task is yet
to be performed. We believe the
Board of County Commslsioners are
equal to this task, and that with the
trustees who are to be appointed,
will be able V out the brast
absolutO el i ee with tuo
interest (of of Pu"Se
MI imp


and especially those who hare been
most active an the furtherance of the
cause, will continue their interest in
and for the proper carrying out of
all tlhe details, goes without saying.
Promises to thel people have been
made, and these promimiss most cer-
tailnly inust be carried out. The
Committee naturally foells great sat-
isfaction in thie pronounced eldorse-
nient accorded them, and their
thanks go out to everybody.

tion of fire-resikting dor. f1,rt
)j It was supposed that these doors
must be made of Iron or steIe, and
although doors made of those omate
rials were often foubd useless, ow
Jag to their liability to buckle, aad
consequently to tear thomseaes from
their fastenings when exposed to ex-
Ireme heat. It is only compahmtlvly
lately that a-really effective substi-
tute has been discovered.
"Although the iron door is still
made use of occasionally In alt
classes of buildings, and I understand
with comparative frequency In Man-
chester warehouses, one finds that in
buildings designed for manufacturing
purposes, and especially in textile
factories, the armored door is rapid-
ly taking its place and giving satis-
faction.
"The armored type of fire door sl
constructed of several thicknesses of
well seasoned pine boards, planed,
tongued and grooved, and nailed to-
gether with '-rought iron nails driv-
en flush and clinched on the other
side.
"The wood is then completely cov-
ered with tinned-steel sheets of not
less than No. 26 standard wire
gauge, each sheet being of a limited
size. lock jointed and fitting close
to the wood, so that, while free to
expand, they exclude the air and
cannot become detached.
"B ythls means combustion is pre-
vented, and it is found that an ex-
posure of several hours to the fiercest
heat results only in the surface of
the outer boards becoming slightly
carbonized to the depth of a trac-
tion of an inch."
"The British insurance companies
'under their tariffs specify that open-
ings to be protected by fire resisting
doors must not exceed nine feet in
height or forty-five superficial feet in
area."--Consular Reports.
He Was Deaf.
'Long ago in ,Barnet, a small town
in Northern Vermont, when it was
the custom to entertain wayfarers at
the comfortable farmhouses along the
road. a long-legged, cadaverous Indi-
vidual in a suit of rusty black stop-
ped at the home of Deacon John L.
Woods for dinner. His melancholy
manner justly exhaled piety.
"Stranger, will you say grace?"
asked Deacon John, as they drew up
to "fable.
"Say what?" said the stranger.
"Will you ask the Lord's blessing
on this food?" urged Deacon-John.
Turning his sad, uncomprehending
eyes on his host, the pious guest said
drearily:
"If you want to talk to me you'll
have to holler like h-! Im deaf as
a d-d old adder.--Prom Life,
Cleveland's sense of Duty.
Mr. Cleveland was sitting In his
law office in the Mills building early
In 1892, when a newspaper man
apokl to him about the possibilityy
that he pight again be nominated
for the presidency 'by the Democratic
convention of that year. Mr. Cleve-
land turned upon his questloar and
said: "It is a solemn thine to bs
president of the United States."--

The place Is incorporated, but no
town taxes hate 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.
Good hunting and Sahing, deer, tuar.

Good boarding house, Byrlyn Place

Six thousand people went through
the San Mateo Fruit Company's grove

One of the best advantage Sea
Mateo enjoys is transportation; being
on both river and rail is an advantages
that few Florida points enjoy. The
past season, for inptaaoe, 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 cases,
three weeks getting to Jacksonville,
on route to northern markets, and
did not briig enough to pay frolght,
while San Mateo shippers, at same
time, would ship from here one day
and have fruit go out of Jacksoaville
on $be Clyde ship the next. This lit
tie matter this season alone was
worth thousands of dollars to the Ban
Mateo growers and the homeseeker
will do well to bear in mind trans
portation and cheap rates that come
with competition, in selecting a Frlo.-
ida location.

TO DEVELOP OKEFENOKFE SWAM,
Pennsylvania Capitalists to Expend
$1,000,000 On Propprty.
Jacksonville, Fla.-A strong com-
pany of Pennsylvania capitalists will
spend $1.000,000 in developing the
Okefenokee swamp, which lies most-
ly in the southeast corner of Georgia
and extends into Florida. The swamp
contains a wealth of fine cypress tim-
ber, and It Is for the purpose of cut-
ting this timber and converting It Into
merchantable lumber that the com-
pany will develop the property. It Is
generally known that a quantity of
the very finest cypress in the swamp
Is in Florida territory, and it is there.
fore possible that much of the Im-
provements to be made by the corm-
pany will be in this state.

Tallabassee, pla. Commissioner
McLls has taken special pains this
year to ascertain the condition and
probable yield of the state's leading
Scrops. His estimate of the cotton crop
Is thus stated In the October Bulletin:
viewingig the situation as to the
cotton crop of the state, a compari-
son of conditions Indicates that the
cotton product of the state will be
close to 57,000 to 58,000 bales, a reduc-
tion of 39 per cent of the normal
crop." Scarcity and inefficiency of la-
bor, high. wages and poor prices are
the Saal elements In the shortness of
the crop. Large quantities of cotton
are still standing In the fields. The
corn and most other crops are short,
but a good hay crop has been harvest-
ed aqd pastures arb In good shape.
The report on the citrus crop is as
follows:
A comparison of the condition of
the present orange and grapefruit
crops with condition at same date
last year indicate only a very slight
Increase In either crop. The orange
crop of 1904-7 amounted to 3,006,534
boxes, and the comparative conditions
go to.,show that the crop of 1907-8
will be very little larger-hardly a
..greater increase than 250,000 boxes,
so that it is very probable that the
crop now on will not exceed 3,256,000
boxes. The grapefruit shows a little
better condition, and by the same
sources of comparison there is slight
Increase also. The grapefruit of
1904-7 amounted to 450,804 crates, and
the present Indications are that it will
not exceed 472,819 crates for 1907-8.
An error that is harmful to both crops
is that of estimating both oranges
and grapefruit as one; they should be
kept entirely separate, and then both
buyers and sellers of fruit have a fair-
er deld of operation. We, therefore.
estimate the orange crop of 4907-8 at
approximately 3,254.,000 boxes, and
the. grapefruit crop of 1907-8 at 472.-
819 crates, or a total of citrus fruit
products of 3,728,819 boxes or crates.

ERA IF PRMfEITT
Being Enjoyed by Florida, Says Well
Known Railroad Man.
Jacksonville, Fla'-"This cold wave
means thousands of dollars to Flor-
ida," declared James E. Roach, a well
knqwn railroad man of this city.
"The oranges are all well matured,
but for some reason the fruit has been
slow in taking on its golden hue..
"The crop is maturing several
weeks ahead of last year. The tissues
are delicately formed, the average
size large, and, as a whole, the fruit
is very fine and luclous. The orange
growers have just reason for feeling
proud of the crop they will ship away
from the state this season.
"As to conditions throughout the
state, I want to say that I never saw
more prosperous times In Florida. I
a traveling through the state almost
ostantly. The stores are well
stocked, and the merchants state that
trade is better than ever before. There
is considerable building going on in
the smaller towns, and the class of
structures that are going up would
do credit to places many times larger
in population. There are not only res-
Idences being erected to take care of
the Increase of population; the con.
struction of large buildings as homes
for new enterprises, but there are
many Improvements going on in the
way of street paving, sewerage sys-
tse, water works and other modern
oohvenienoes being adopted looking
toward the heath and general devel
opmeat of the towns.

The first step has been taken in a'
project that will aid greatly In the de-
velopment of Sanfdrd and the almost
unbroken country to the southeast of
that city. The work on the Sanford
and Everglades railroad has .been
started and the company expects to
have the first dive miles through the

February.
Lewis Wasters, a young man about
22 years old, was drowned in Deep
creek near Holy branch while engag-
ed in rafting logs for the Dyal-Up-
church company. It seems that the
young man could not swim, and get-
ting into deep water with no one near
to help him he lost his life. His body
was recovered shorfTy after the sad
accident.
From the large number of folders
descriptive of various Florida cities,
communities, hotels and resorts in cir-
culation it is evident that the people
of the state are doing more than just
talking about the attractions nature
and man offer the visitor from the
colder northern states.


Carrying out its policy established
a year ago, the city council of Pensa-
cola has designated the depository
for city moneys or the next fiscal
year. awarding the bid to the Aw.eri-
can National bank, that institution to
pay 6.09 per cent upon three classes
of funds, which will net the city a
revenue of about $4,000 on interest
alone on the various classes of funds.
The system was inaugurated a year
ago in Pensacola, after a very careful
investigation at the hands of the
finance committee, and the first year,
at a lower rate of Interest than that
which is to pertain hereafter, netted
the city over $3,000. All banks of the
city made bids for securing the city
money, and the one offering the high-
est was given the award.
A long mooted question has been
decided by the municipal judge of
Tampa. In a case before Judge Pee-
ples, recently, it was laid down as a
rule of the law of courtship that 10:80
o'clock p. m. is late enough for any
young man to remain at the home of
the object of his adoration, if he has
not formally declared his intentions.
J. Sakia, founder of Yamato, the
Japanese colony in Dade county, re-
cently applied to the board of educa-
tion of that county to allow his wife,
who is under twenty years of age, to
attend school at Boca Ratone.. The
board instructed the teacher of that
school to admit Mrs. Sakal as a pupil,
if it could bo done without disarrang-
ing the work of the school.
Some of the farmers who own
places near Miami say that quail is so
plentiful around their farms that it is
a difficult matter to get a seed bed
started. One of the farmers stated
that he had planted seeds two or
three times and the little birds at
once proceeded to go in and help
themselves. From all over the county
comes the reports that never before
have quail been seen so plentiful.
Tampa is making Havana cigars for
Havana. The tobacco is grown in
Cuba, not far fro*u Havana, is import-
ed to Tampa, paying duty, and the
manufactured product is exported to
Cuba, again paying duty, and is sold
there. This singular twist in the laws
of trade has come about through the
cigarmakers' strike in the Cuban cap.
ital. A Havana cigar dealer recently
sent an order to one of the most
prominent of Tampa cigar manufac-
turing houses which was promptly
filled. Naturally Tampa is quite jubi-.
lant. If the orders continue to come
after the strike is over it will demon-
strate that Tempa is Indeed becoming
a world center for cigars.

T1Fn the order to botst was gives,

fMl the oollar tighten about Ms **ek.
Hfi bead gradually was lifted up, un-
lI his fore legs left the ground acd
ihe pranced on his hind paws. With
thr fear of strangulation and the ian-
rt.net of self-preservation his brain
became a mental mud-puddle. He
beat the air with his fore paws,
whirled, squirmed, and wriggled, lo
a vain effort to get out of the col
lar that clutched his throat. Everv
movemeo^ of his body brought him
eareo' to the seat over which hung
the T.iock and tackle. When he reach-
.d It an assistant grabbed his tall
through the bars of the cage and
pulled him toward the little stool,
while the trainer punched him
against it with the Iron bar.
"Bwing hkn clear of the ground," he
called. "We'll make him take that
seat. All together now!" and as the
men laid their combined weight on
the rope, the big cat Wwa hoisted un-
til his hind legs dangled two feet
above the floor, dancing madman's
Jig. The helpless, choktjg brute
fought the useless fight of a fish out
of water. Had not the musoFes over
his throat been like splid rubber tires
he would have strangled as he etrled
his body into a coll. trying to es-
oape the weight that hung from till
own neck.
With much pushing and hauling the
struggling beast finally was landed on
the seat; but the moment he felt
support under his feet he leaped to:
the floor. He was met by the trainer,
who walloped the sore, sensitive noso
with the hickory handle of his whip
and followed this up firing the burn-
inj powder of a blank cartridge
straight Into the nostril. The tiger
turned to run. but the trainer yelled.
"lAft him, boys." and as the crew
threw their weight on the rope the
beast's head and fore legs were yank-
ed from the ground, and be pranced
long for a few steps with only the
claws of his hind feet touching the
boards. When the momentum of his
body had carried him clear of the
floor, he swung back, sRuspended in
the air, more like a life-less tiger-
skin than a blood-flllpd beast of flesh
and sinew.-Prom Everybody's.

I attended just two plays last sea-

I'a-t it sounded that way. They dis-
cussed many subjects, btt mostly
,baseball and sports. They did not
bother to lower their voice* and
black looks had no effect on them.
I heard more of their talk than I
heard of the play. The next time I
sat 4n the balcony, and the ushers
wer carrying on a crap game on the

All I heard of the play was: ',Come

The Aristocracy ef America

HIS aristocracy, founded on money though It be, early learned
that money Is but 4 means, that culture is the end, and it soon
came about that a man must be a pretty Insignificant sort of a
millionaire, who by his benefactions was unable to found a
university, or at leasl. have a professorship. named for him,
even if he himself were unable to write English grammatically
-and the children of thee millionaires benefited by their
father's aspirations. We may not say by what marvelous means the traus-
formation was ,fc.ted, but certain it is the Newport of today is very differ.
ent from the Newport of a generation ago. Croesus does not build his house
just like his neighbors only a little bigger, but commands the services of the
ablest architects, who have transformed Newport from a city of commonplace
cottages to one of rare architectural distinction. If Cruesus lacks the taste
to furnish his house becomingly, be has the sense to 'hire a decorator to do
it for him-although in a larger measure than we realize, this is unnecessary
-for Croesus has, In th*se later days, abandoned fast horses and flashy
waistcoats, and has learned to buy pictures and books for himself-and he en.
joys them too, which Is even a gr(atrr matter. Hlie does not always spend
his money wisely-that were asking too much in a single generation; he
still makes too great a show of his money, leading humble folk to imagine
that there is iome magic pleasure in the mere possession of vast wealth.
lie will overdo things occasionally-or at least Mrs. Croesus will, as when
once she built a temporary ball-rocm next to her stately summer home, at s
cost-so the newspaper said-:of some ferty thousand dollars, and tore it down
after a single evening's entertalament. Mrs. Croesus will spend vast sums
of money to no rational purpose, and So give the socialists a deal to talk
about, beside creating the impression That her husband's wealth was not
inherited; but on the whole she has made tremendous progress since she was

Conscience


By Caspar Whitney.


'IINOS have been coming Doctor Eliot's way recently. Next to
a fling at President Roosevelt this distinguished educator relishes
nothing so much as a fling at athletics! And kind fate generous.
ly gave him a chance at each.
Now was not that a threat how-to-do at Cambridge over the
taking of a book from the college library by a member of the
crew who was starting for New London and desired it to com-.
S plete a thesis upon which he was working!
Of course it was wrong to transgress any of the college rules, and equal.
ly, of course, he should have been punished. But to take him off the crew to
the despair of the boy himself and to the apparent upheaval of the 'Varsity
crew! Does any Intelligent person ra ppose President Eliot would have visit-
ed such punishment upon a rt .it not occupying so prominent a place nla
y1 university athletics. It was a sillily weighty sentence to pronounce upon a
really small offense, and would never have been made but for the obvious
publicity of its every maneuver Inimical to college sport.
SWhether the student remained on the crew or off the crew or was pun.
Wished, or whether Harvard won or lost the race through his being on or off
the crew, is, from the viewpoint of college life and purpose, of little moment.
We may deprecate the thirst for notoriety In so learned a doctor, and
be amused at the teapot temptest, and be not a bit disturbed, had it all ended
there. But out flares President Bllot in a letter publicly branding these two
young men as dishonest and crooked. Now that is the serious side of this
otherwise farcical temptest in a teapot. If President Eliot wished to so
Sdemojinate these two young men to his faculty members, that would perhaps
e about bad enough: but it would still be a private opinion privately ex-
plhsMd. But to publish it in the newspapers
M element which I am sure wit! lead to complexity in the minds of
worthy eitiseas is whether It Is more culpable to take a textbook which

UAMMBN A RARDY 0GOAT.
While goat raising is an Impor
tant Industry In I2arovAn countries
especilly In Switabruld. Italy, Ger
maRy. Australia, I'anee, Norway an.
SpalIn t is oply within the last eight
or U*Myars that goati have attracted
thi attealios' of breeders who have
slat raised them in any consider
able Umbers. The enthusiasts say
that there is a big profit In raising
them for t artat.
The ardineut of the goat and iU
ability to care for Itself render goal
railing a very simple matter. It is
not particular in its food, nor Is it
a gross eater. For this reason goal
farming Is especially recommended
for women. The farmer's wife is
learning that she can care for a large
herd "Vith little effort or worry. An
iwfttatt- source of Income is thus
iJade. posible throughout the coanf.
try. Pratfcally any land, no matter
how poor, will support a goat herd,
provided alone it is not wet or
mashy. Goats will thrive and mult!-
ply on land which would starve horses
or cattle or even sheep. The rough.
ness of the land works no disadvant-
age since goats seem to prefer hil!-
sides and rocky cliffs to level coun-
try.
tThe principal value of the Angora
goat from a commercial standpoint
lies in its wool, which is commonly
known as mohair, but another strong
point in the Angora is its dietetic
peculiarity, hiZch makes it one of
the best land scavengers In the world.
A great many of the farmers who
have in recent years gone Into An-
hpL. qat raising have had the clear-
Jug V their brush patches in view
rather than the mere production of
mohair.
Writing of milk goats recently, a
Massachusetts breeder said: "The
two breeds which by commbn agree-
ment sepie the most desirable I:q
this country are the Toggenburg and
Saanei, bqth Swiss varieties. OWuY7
a fdw importations of these have
been made, numbering in all fewer
than -100..
"What are-they good for?, They
are milk producers-milk of a very
high quality and with not the slight-
est strong or unpleasant flavor. They
are not so good for cream or butter.
The milk Is richer In fat than- cow's
milk, but does not separate readily.
At the same time it is the most
easily digested milk known, which
makes it of the greatest value as
food for children and invalids.
The writer has a Saanen doe that
gave three quarts of milk per day
at her first kidding and now, six
months later, gives two quarts. The
milk sells in the cities readily for
twenty-five cents per quart. When
mature this doe should give five or
six quarts when fresh. She is a
hearty feeder and drinker, but, for
all that, what is such an animal worth
s!wan Investment? To the man fa-

ACID 8011.8
A recent number of Wallace's
farmer has sonic valuable remtark-3
upon this subject, as follows:
"We fear that.a great many farm-
ers In the older sections of our terri.
tory, and especially in southern Il-
linois, Indiana and Ohio, Will fail to
secure stands of clover this year not
because of lack of preparation of the
seed bed. nor because of seed of
weak germinating power, nor bhe-'ause
of a season too wMt or too dry, but
well established fact that the or1ii
nafy lovers, especially the common
red 'and mammoth, do not thrive in
an acid soil; while for .iomte reason(
alike sems to thrive In sail that
are generally supposed to be acid,
and where other clovers fall.
In thcse sections especially, an]
wherever the land Is somewhat worn.
the farmer should ascertain at once
whether his soil i:. acid or not. I11
can do this for himself quite as w-1ll
as anybody else can do it for hi"i,
sand with very slight expenses, if he
will go to the drug stolu: and get
five cents' worth of !bliu c llt:, u.- pal-
per. Then when thei' lir is out of
the grounil, 1,1' a in'.' of tlitiis
paper in the ;gromun,, t.i'-;, a sp:i 14,
insert It in the slit thus imaite anid
press the soil firmly again.-t 1'. Thenl
In a quarter or h:i'f h,,'ir uncover
the paper and allow it to dry. Or
he can take a sample of the soil hie
wishes to test, put it in a pot, take
his knife and make an op' .nl1ig,. an,'
then slip in the pelce' of piper. If
the paper turns pink or red as it
dries, the soil is acidl.
What then Is to be done. The
acid must Le corrected and the bes *
way it cati be corrected is by the
application of lime or ground lime-
stone, the amount to be d(lferneiijl
by the degree of acidity as shown by


the shade of the litmus paper. If
slightly acid two or threc hundred
pounds per acre may (orrect it, but
If there is con.; ,l Irable ac'iity ai
thousand pounds will he required .
After you have co directed the aciljty
you can grow clover, if the other
conditions are furnished."
Sheep sorrel is ui.lly f;round in
acid soil, and it is a very :iure ~ign
that the soil needs liming.

FARM NOTES.
Hens don't like to drink muddy
water. Don't force them to du it.
The hog is clean if you give himn
a chance. Because the hog will eat
almost anything is no reason for giv-
Ing him rotten food.
If you let the cows shorten up)
on their milk yihe, during the hot
months because of short fe'e I, they
will not regain thi ir maximum yield
until after they come freh again.
The breeders of pure br'ed beef
cattle should pay more attention to
the milking qualities of their cows.
The milkless cow is a monsoitrosilty
that should not be tolerate.l.
Plenty of good pture water every
day helps to bring lotis of e-gs. Eggs
are largely liquid, anyway.
Where poultry andn small fruits aro
grown on the same land the drop-
pings are often valued at fifty cents
a year for each hen.

REMEDY FOR GAPEB.
The following treatment is recom-
mended by a Canadian poultrymnan in
Rural Now Yorker:
"Take an ordinary slice of bread.
soak with water, then add about a
tablespoonful of turpentine, which
mix thoroughly In soaked bread and
feed to all chicks and ('hlckenf w hetl-
pp affected or not (making a point
to see that the affected ones e:at
onime of the treated bread). loe-
peat this dose in about three days.
It might be neco:sary to give annothr
dose In a week's time. but I have
n(vv.r foanl that it was required. All
to whom I have offered this remedy

High School Fraternities.
The school authorities have decreed
that pupils may not be members of
secret societies. Their reasons for this
action appear amply sufficient, for the
fraternity as it exists today Is
utterly out of place In the public
schools. If It had no other faults, the
class distinctions which it creates
would be sufficient to condemn it.
The Issue, however, is not "Are the
fraternities an evil?" but "Is authority
to be maintained?" Are some among
the school pupils, with their parents.

of Education, or are the school trus-
