Death of W. M. Davis.
Walter M. Davis, only son of Hon.
Robt. W. Davis, died in Palatka
Wednesday morning, after an illness
of several weeks.
Mr. Davis was born in Bailnridge,
Ga., In 1871. He was reared in Pa-
latka, but for several years past has
lived in Jacksonville, practicing his
profession with much success. He
was a young man of unusual ability
and was recognized as one of the
foremost lawyers of Florida. Sur-
viving him are his wife, who was
Miss Annie Ackerman, two children,
his father and two sisters.

Money in Potatoes.
Mr. W. H. Erwin, of Anastasia
and Hastings, in conversation with
a Record representative this morning
gave him the results from the potato
crop on two of his farms at Hastings.
On one farm of 46 acres he shipped
3.826 barrels or an average of seven-
ty-three and nine-tenths barrels to
the acre.
On another farm of.75 acres he
shipped 3,922 barrels or an average of
fifty-two and one-third barrels to the
acre. This makes the splendid aver-
age for the 120 acres of 64 barrels to
the acre. This does not include the
many barrels of culls whice were
sold at $1.75 per barrel at the station.

Hastings Potato Fields.
Hastings, April 29.-Hastings is
now submitting the proof of the early
predictions as to an unprecedented
yield in the potato fields. In rare
instances the yield has reached 100
barrels to the vcre. Mr. Emerson
reports having slipped 450 barrels
from a five acre field, and the Flor-
ida Vegetable Company from I 1-.32
acres (lug 129 barrels, many farmers
are reporting an average yield of ro
to 70 and even 80 barrels to the acre
on fields of 20 to 40 acres.
Sh ippinig has been increna ing, andi
for the next two weeks will be at the
highest mark. During thle past few
days the potato trains have averaged
40 cars daily. As the potatoes are
removed from the ground the corn
is beginning to show. Before the'
spuds are all shipped Hastings will
be one laimense cornfield. The out-
look for the corn crop is as bright as
the potato crop, and the farmers will
harvest a second profitable crop from
the same ground within a period of
a few months.
At the present time Hastings is a
scene of great activity. Commission
men, buyers and visitors, with the
growers and diggers animate tlih po-
tato section, and the merchants here
are also reaping a harvest.
Prof. Claude T'ringly, of Stetsonl
University, was here a few days re
gently leaving Monday for Philadel-
phia and Jersey City, and later will
go on to Chicago for the summer.
Mrs. Tingley will remain North this
summer.
From week to week the Item will
publish the reports of the Orange
Growers Committees as given at the
meeting inl Tampa last week. Hon.
'Thos. Palmer's paper will be found
on another page this week.
Mr. W. N. Lewis, of Utica, N. Y.,
was here this week in the Interest of
the Ralph property. He left in-
structions for many improvements,
fertilizing the two properties, etc.
Mr. Rowley will have charge of tile

The Florida soldier boys. who atre
soon to go into camp on the Black
Point grounds, will find It rather a
difflcutt problem this time to be ab-
sent from camp without leave. Theie

from camp-one by way of the bridge.
which will be strongly guarded, and
the other to swim the St. Johns. The
boys will undoubtedly be there this
time when duty calls.

to the middle of June. Shipments are
being made every day, about all of
the truck growers participating to
some extent.
The passage of the L.e.tt hill. al,

COLONISTS DIVIDE
INTO CLIQUES ON
SHORT ACQUAINTANCE

A phise of the eternal feminil
which Is extremely hard for the m2
Line mind to grasp, andti which all
Is beyond the comprehension of man
a well balanced woman, Is the way I
which the members of a summer co
ony divide up lato little cliques an
call each other by their Christil
names on short acquaintances. Afte
bwo months of the season have pas-a
a stranger arriving on the outskirt
of the several charmed circles ,woul
imagine thai they woro all related o
eke had gone to school with on
another, so rapidly do the "des
Mauds," or "dear Ethels." or "dna
Kates" fly back and forth In even
casual conversation, and as the hus
bands arrive on the scene of action
which is most frequently the club
house veranda or the lawn, they, too
are. unanimously greeted by nick
names, as If they were lifelong
friends. The confidences exchanged in
the first ardent flush of finding n
kindred soul, willing to share imagine
ary grievances, love affairs or ac
counts of previous good times, are cl
a most personal nature, so persona
that the narrator frequently oversteps
the bounds of prudence-nothing I1
held sacred in the desire to gain sym.
pathy, for these shallow, impression-
able natures are always on the qul
vive for an occasion to spread broad
cast their experiences, and, alas! too
frequently such experiences bring iu
other people, who, being In ignorance
of what is .being said about them, nev.
er have the right to defend them-
selves. Women of this undisciplined
temperament invariably make them-
selves both ethe heroine and the vic.
tim in every tale they tell. If any
one las at fault it is always the other
person, and they personally are thl
most innocent (or injured) people In
the world. The number of anecdotes
they have on hand varies with the
vividness of their imagination, but
they always may be counted on to
have &a supply sufficient to last
through the season and keep the will-
ing listener fascinated. Half the en-
joyment of the summer time to them
is the prospect of new "friends," anJ
if they are to go to a new place as
well so muoh the better, for the field
is new and old tales may be retold
and improved.
The fdrst evidences of an over-
whelming desire to "be friends'"
comes with book lending, pattern
lending or, in fact, a loan of any
kind that carries a wee bit of obliga-
tion on its wake. After a while
morning visits that overlap the lun-
cheon hour are in order. Bach has a
compliment to "trade." and shortly
the delights of secrets begin. After
secrets most naturally comes the re-
quest to "call me by my own name,
or find some cute litUe nickname that
will Just be yours for me; for It
seems as Ki we had always known
each other." Before long It is deemr.
ed allly to call the busbawd or broth-
er "mister," and another cute little
nmoe is evolved. Nor is this aslliHaes


and mistakes form of friendship Oon.
fined, as might be expected, to the
young girl just out of school or to
lddle lo ss soeeety. Instead, it is
prevMlet with all but the oldUme con.
votUoioal men ad women, of which
there is a eoplianou ainodty In
the syer s4s of fsasouable life.

Poets and National Greatness.
Victor Hugo once said in his lordly,
generalizing way, that it was Shake*
speare who prevented England from
being only another Carthage; and it
is indeed true that but for our great
poets we should not hold the place
we do hold in the opinion of Europe,
Because of them we do not wince
when we are described as a nation of
shopkeepers, for they prove that we,
like the Florentines and Venetians,
are something more than that. M.
Bourget has expressed the' general%
wonder of cultivated foreigners that
the English nation, which seems so
matter of fact and even dull, should
have produced two poets compared
with whose works all other poetry
seems to be prose- and these poets
are the very two who are to be hon.
ored today in Rome. It is certainly
a fact that more than any other na.
tion we produce men of genius who
vary extremely from our normal type,
and we never have produced more
wonderful poets than lhelley an4
Keats.--London Times. ,

MAKING BUNBHINE
It Is Often Found Im Pure Food.
The Improper selection of food
drives many a healthy person into
the depths of despairing illness. In-
deed, most sickness comes from
wrong food, and Just so surely a"
that is the case, right food will make
the sun shine once more.
An old veteran of Newburypoit,
Mass., says: "In October, I was
taken sick and went to bed, losing 47
pounds In about 60 days. I had doc-
tor after doctor, food hurt me and I
had to live almost entirely on mag-
nesia and soda. All solid food dis-
tressed me so that water would run
out of my mouth in little streams.
"1 had terrible night sweats and
my doctor finally said I had consuump-
tion and must die. My good wife
gave up all hope. We were at Old
Orchard, Me., 'at that time, and my
wife saw Grape-Nuts In a grocery
there. She bought some and per-
S headed me to try It.
SI had Jn faith in It, but took It to
*.. please her. To my surprise it did not
distres me. as all other food had
dose, and before I had taken the fifth
1. package I was well on the mend. The
palna left my head, my mind became
essarer and I gained weight rapidly.

Costs Nothing


IDEAL
INYMBTMENT
Many seem to think that after the
crop Is set, the trees are going to ma-
ture it some way and anything they
can save on fertilizer is clear gain.
but actual results prove that a sum-
mer fertilizing costs less than noth.
nlg. By making each fruit a little
larger many boxes are added to the
crop and the fruit brings a higher
price. Then, a luxuriant growth of
bearing wood is a necessary founda-
tion for a large crop next year, and
still further gain is seen in the con.
edition of the trees. If their vitality
has been kept up they are better pre-
pared for winter and for strong spring
action than trees that have become
thoroughly exhausted and have to be
nursed up before they can respond to
the call of spring.

i due investigation of the corpo.
laws of the state of California,
which the fruit growers' ex-
age is organized, we found that In
Ailet to bring about the same or .ilm-
JAlk' organizations in Florida, it was
00eeessary to secure from our legisla-
ttre, now In session, thle passage of a
corporation law simllan to the Callfor-
ala law. In other words, we found
that under the present corporation law
of Florida. we could not. accomplish
the purpose of the California organiza-
tion from the fact that the present
laws of Florida only contemplate two
S.classes of corporations, corporations
for profit, and corporations not ror
profit, the latter, however, being con-
fined to elemosynary corporations ;
that Is to say, to religious, education-
al, charitable or other mutual benevo-
lent associations, and as we thought
It desirable to organize here on simi-
? lar lines to the California orgatilza-
tlon, we found neither of these pro-
visions of oumrt plreseIn law would fit
our case.
I'nd r lihe ('alifornia law, ithe fruit

At the foot qf this pyramid and
forming its very base are the various
fruit growers' unions: they are, as
a rule, corporations, though not.iec-
essarily so at all times. They are
known and termed associations of
growers, or units, and reaches direct-
ly the growers who compose It, these
units are formed in each neighbor-
hood, considering only the convenl-
ence of the 'growers.
As a general thing there is but one
share of stock, Issued by the associa-
tion to each grower, which share of
stock is predicated upon his holding
of orange property, and the ownership
of it passes with the land.
Sub.Exchange.
The sub.-exchanges are separate
corporations from the associations
of thei growers, and are located in the
above described, and are comxpoed
of groups of such associations of grow-
rLI'. auid are located in the most con-
venient territory to the associations
that compose them; one share of stock
of tlith sub-exchange is issued to each
association of growers, which entitles
each association to one director in the
exchange. This share of stock, being
usually held ly the particular director
selected by the association to repre-
rent it. 'I'lie sub-exchanges are locat-
ed in stiome central community (-onie-
nient of access to all of the associa-
tions that compose it, so as to be in
touch 0 Vitli the associations and act
as a ineans of communication from
them to the central exchange. and at
the same time in clove communication
"by telephone and telegraph with the
central exchange.
Coming on to the apex of the pyramid
as above described, we now reach
ai;d deal with the
Central Exchange
Or clearing house for the fruit itself.
This, In the case of California, is lo-
cated at io)s Angeles. One share of
stock of this, the general exchange, is
issued to each sub-exchanige; no mole.

change to one director In this general

on the contrary, the entIre question
of profit In ltje handling qf the fruit,

from the growers remain in the hands
of the exchange, such funds are, at
the end of the season, pro rated back

the number of boxes shipped through
the exchange by each grower, thus
making this system, In our judgment,
and as far as human foresight can
possibly render it. a complete and
perfect. system, and one we most
heartily recommend for the adoption
of the orange growers of Florida, it
being impossible in our judgment to
conceive a more perfect organization.

As stated in these columns last
week, the lower rate given Cuban
pines from Miami over Dade county
pines is stirring up a fuss, and the
Florida East Coast Railway and Mr.
Flagler arc being cussed all along the
line. On some points the growers are
not to be blamed for cussing, but on
others they are wrong in blaming the
Florida East Coast Railway.
Mr. Flagler is a business man, -and
no doubt believes he can build up a
paying business by building hbl4 rail-
road from Jacksonville to Key VWeit,
with its millions of outlay, and there
is no one but what trusts he will be
successful. lie is building to Key
West at this time, not for what little
business Key West may give him-
that is sure. He is going out for the
Cuban business for one thing, and we
all know the competition lie will havy'
to meet to get his part or any part
of this business. We also know that
the fruit, pineapples and citrus, busi-
ness in Cuba is just starting and that
the output is rapidly increasing. What
we all do not slop to think about is
the fact that if there was no Florida
East Coast Railway, Cuban growers
would market their pines with their
different water lines, competing
against 'each other, at the present
rates or lower, as the quantities in-
crease. On one or two ships alone
from Havana to Mobile recently were
more pines than the Florida East
Coast Railway has handled all this
season from Cuba. Let the railroad
get all this business they can, help
them to get it if we can. Let them
show and establish the fact that they
can make a good profit on hauling
pines at the cut rates.
Let them demonstrate that they
CAN lay pines down in Cincinnati in
quicker time than it now takes to
lay them down at Jacksonville. Let
them makl a barrel or two of money
out of the Cuban traffic if they can
get it Just to help the Florida bunch
pay the company's expenses and prof-
its. The Item hopes they will make
millions out of it instead of some oth-
er transportation company.
4 The prevent rate given Cuban pines
is nothing new, some years old, and
it is only the increased quantity of
fruit coming via the Florida East


Coast Railway over last year and the
year before that is bringing the mat-
ter more to the attention of the grow-
ers.
All the roads are showing that they
can handle these solid trains through
In quick time. They are billed through

roads, as compared to the single eMrs

pas Mateo, Putnam County, is adi
- ted a on the. east batik of the St.
Johns River, and 90 feet above It.
S be $1ghest polit in Florida, east of
S he St. Johns river, which is one-halt
a le wide at this point.
Five miles from Palatka, our county
: heat, (city of 4,000), l miles from
St. Augustine and abdot 76 milse
from Jacksonville.
The terminus of a branch of tho
Florida East Coast Railway. The de-
pot being three-quarters of a noie
from the river wharf.
Advantages and Attractions.
Ban Mateo has good shelled roads
and miles of hard sidewalks. Beautil
ftl wateroaks line both sides of
streets, and meet overhead In many
please.
Two churches, publlo and private
schools, telegraph, telephone, express,
money order postoffice, three mails
dally, meat market, two general
stores, who take orders and deliver
goods at your door, weekly parer.
The place Is incorporated, but nup
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 pullian
together. The state and county taxes
are aboyt 20 mMls on about one-third
valuation.


Good hunting and fishing, deer, tur-
key, ducks and quail, black bass and
othdr Florida fresh water fish.
Good boarding house, Byrlyn Place,
open winters; rates eight to ten dol-
lars per week; $.00 day.
Six thousand people went through
the San Mateo Fruit Company's grove
here last season.
One of the best advantages Sam
Mateo enjoys is transportation; being
on both river and rail is an advantage
that few Florida points enjoy. The

FAShION NOTIM.
oPharpes are much In vogue. For
evening wear there are some very
pretty ones to be seen of chiffon em-
boldered n gold.
Although bright tints are not es-
chewed, the general tendency Is fo
soft, dellecte tones, light shades
valling.
If Paris can have Its way, the
tendency in millinery will be towm
quaint effects.
New materials undoubtedly
toward a continuance of the
toire style, though there Is reasoMs
believe that it will be greatly
fled.'
At the millinery shops the
mings are ostrich tips in m
shades--mauve and old blue, bl
and mauve 0nd green and navy blue.
The tunic Is becoming an all-4
portant part of the dress.
The Jacket Is one of the revival
seen In some of the handsome
ported costumes.
Oabouichens of straw with Jew
centers will be seen on some of
smart hats.
Skirtings are nearly all striped'
which adds to the long-lined effects
of the season.
Messaline silk In exquisite dreaden
patterns- makes the dainties of un-
derskirts.
Very unusual are-some of the French
cheviots, which show the Roman
stripe effect.
Light frocks exhibit embroidery
rather than the lace trimmings of
former seasons.
8hlrring over cords and In tiny
puffs will be seen more and more.
Except for an occasional scant
flounce, all trimming Is put on in
lengthwise form.
Figured as well as striped lenrlet-
tes are seen in the shops in all the
newest colorings.
Imitation cluny lace In linen
makes effective trimmings for wash
dresses.


BATIOR SUITITS.
Some people think that the regula-
tion sailor suit must be made of blue
flannel and trimmed with white braid.
Of course, this Is very appropriate;
it is extremely good-looking and it
wears awfully well, but It certainly
limits any attempt at variety, and In
the dressing of the little folk we like
to avail ourselves of all possible
variety in fabrics, for so much in the
way of style which may be claimed
by the grownups is denied them. Do
you know that shepherd's check in
black and white makes very smart lit-
te sailor' cults, and brightened with
decorations of red. they are very at-
tractive and youthful?
Tartan plaids, too, make very hand&
some suits and the decorations for
these may be red. white or black.
No material Is more satisfactory
than serge, and a sailor suit of red
serge, with trimmings of black, is
very stylish. Serge in a rich shade
of brown, with decorations in yellow
or white: makes a handsome suit and
black serge, with white trimmings
and white serge with black trim-
mings, make a most appropriate style
of mourning for a child. Ballor suits
of white serge' or white linen may
be used for "dress-up" occasions and,
with red or blue decorations, are very
elective.
For the everyday suits for little
gen and women there is no more
stlas etery material than darkuble

for San Francisco and Los Angeles,
her farm being midway between these
cities. The Californians are confirmed
frog-eaters, but fresh legs were
scarce until Mrs. Smith took up her
frog raising. She got the idea when

the small lakes in that State frogs
croak by the million. Indians send
the legs in bunches to Chicago, Mil-

and the easy profit in the business
convinced Mrs. Smith a frog farm

had no difficulty in renting a watery
waste covering a score ot acres. She
received a big shipment of frog'
,,from Wisconsin. That was three
years ago, and the frogs took to the
California climate as if they never
had known zero weather in the North.
Now the stock has multiplied so that
daily shipments go to the chief res-

Baby Boy Had Intense Itching Humor
--S-ratched Till Blood Ran-
Found a Cure In Cutlcura.
"Our son, two yeurv .old, was afflicted
with a rash. After he Kuffered with the
trouble several weeks I took him to the
doctor, but it got wore. The rash ran to-
gether and made large blisters. The little
fellow didn't want to do anything but
scratch and we had to wrap his hands up
to keep him from tearing the flesh open
till the blood would run. The itching was
intense.- The skin on his back became hard
and rough like the bark on a tree. He
suffered intensely for about three months.
But 1 found a remedy in (uticura Soap and
(uticura Ointment. The result was almost
magical. That wns more than two years
ago and there ha not bein the slight t
symptomr of it since lie was cured. J. W.
