Tallahauee, Fray, Narch 24, 1M .

There's a vast difference between a
,poor man and a poor sort of a man.
We are in town to stay, and don't
you forget it! Just come around when
you wish neat printing quick.
General Kuropatkin is to stay at the
front. He has swapped positions with
General Linevitch and will command
the first Russian army.
More dangerous to this country than
S the influx of foreigners are the people
who think work with the hands is de-
grading. On the other hand, manual
work in the foundation of prosperity.

Law makers should not become law-
breakers during the session of the Leg-
islature. We have a few blind tigers
here gentlemen. They are sly old coons,
however, and so far have escaped pun-
ishment., ..-.. ..
The Supreme Court of Ohio, on the
21st, upheld the constitutionalty of the
criminal section of the Valentine anti-
trust law. The civil section had al-
ready been passed upon as constitu-
tional some time ago.
The editor of this newspaper returns
thanks to the brethren of the Flor-
ida press for the many nice notices
they continue to give us and our paper.
We hope to prove worthy the confidence
they all bespeak for us.
We stand ready to compare shipper's
invoices with any Job Printing Office in
Middle Florinda, to prove beyond a shad-
ow of doubt that we have bought and
paid cash for, and printed up more neat
commercial Job work than has any other
print shop in this section And still it
,rolls in.
The Colorado General Assembly in
Joint committee on the 21st, exonerated
James H. Herbert, vice-president and
general manager of the Colorado &
Southern Railload and Daniel Sullivan,
postmaster of Cripple Creek, who had
been charged with bribery in the Guber-
national contest.
Every farmer should be shy of the
stove men who are all the time travel-
ing about the country. They ct a ge
twice as much as their stoves are
worth. Not one farmer out of a dozen
but regrets his purchase, if he should
be wheedled into buying one of the
stoves. The beat way ins to buy of men
at home who are responsible.
We have this week turned out from
our Job Printing Office two very neat
and clean pamphlets -the supreme court
rules and a new telephone list. Exam-
ine them closely, compare them with any
job work of their kind ever done in Flor-
ida, and then if you wish printing done
of the same kind, at reasonable prices,
call on us. We are prepared to do the
S beat printing on the shortest notice, and
S we guarantee satisfaction every time.
A Washington dispatch of the 21st
S says President Roosevelt has under con-
; sideration the case of Midshipman Ar-
rowood of Burlingtonm, N. C., who was
recently convicted by court-martial of
desertion from the navy and sentenced
S to dismissal in disgrace. It is under-
s tood to be the President's intention to
S mitigate the sentence, so far an to or-
S der Arrowood's dismissal from the ser-
vice for absence without leave, which
will relieve him of thq death penalty.
SThe act of Congress making appro-
priations for the department of agri-
S culture, for the fiacal year ending June
S 80, 190S, contains the following item:
"The secretary of agriculture is hereby
S directed to obtain in the open market

1esample of seeds of grass, clover or al-
j falfa, test the same, and If any such
S d are found to be adulterated, or
misbranded, to publish the results of
the test, together with the names of
the persons by whom the seeds were
offered for sale Good idea!

"How do you like that house I put up

"Wh, confound It," snapped the

Eight miners were at work In the

of eleven rescuers entered Rush Run
mines to locate the dead. They prob-
ably had gone back- 2,000 feet when
the second explosion occurred, and
it Is positively known that all are
dead, as there is no possible chance
for their escape.
After the first explosion miners
from neighboring mines rushed to the
ill fated mine in an effort to save
their comrades. On a('<3unt of the
gas it was considered unsafe to en-
ter the mine Sundny.
The rescuers had gone about two
thousand feet into the mine when the
second explosion occurred,- or less
than half the distance to where the
miners had been working when the
first explosion occurred.
The Red Ash and Rush Run pits con.

Victory of a Dark Horse Breeks Deadlock la
Missouri Legislature.
In the Missouri legislature Satur-
day amidst scenes of the wildest dis-
order Major WVlliam Warner, republi-
can of Kansas City, was elected Unit-
ed States senator from Missouri to
succeed Francis Marion Cockrell, the
democratic senator, whose term ex-
pired March 4. and who had occupied
the oice since 1874.
The election of Miajor Warner ended
the deadlock in the legislature that
began when the first joint ballot was
taken on January 18. Saturday's Joint
session was the forty-fifth and the
elective halot wat the sixty-seventh.
From the beginning the democrats
steadfastly voted for their caucus
nominee, F. M. Cockrell, while the
while the majority of the republicans
,ted for Thoma K. NIedrlngbaus of
St. Louis, chairman of the state oem-
tral committee and caucus nominee.
Efforts were made to stop a roll
call on the seventh ballot and there
wua an attempt to tear the presiding
officer from his chair, and the demo-
crats tried to effect an adjournment
without an election. The time for
sine die adjournment had been sea
for 8 o'clock by concurrent resolu-
tion and as the hour approached the
clock was smashed in the melej.

The Hsouth to the Van.

The Southern States are putting to
ahame thlm great Empire State in the
matter of good roads. A recent
trip through the South disclosed
to me the fact that the subject
was being more generally discussed
and more work done to the end that
the highways for wagons should be
well constructed than In our.own State.
In the Carollaid, particularly, I noted
many miles of new macadamised roads
equal to the famous turnpikes of Vir-
ginia. Kentucky and Tennessee of the
ante-bellum time. This partleularly
impressed me, too, In view of the neg-
leet of road In the old Virginia State,
which I observed at the time of the
maneuvree last fall at Manasans. The
magnificent road of old from Alexan-
dria to Warrenton-"tbe Warrenton
pike"-I found had been so neglected
as to be no longer discoverable as a
macadamilsed road. Florida, Alabama
and Mississippi are all wide awake to
the value of well constructed and care-
fully maintained country roads. In
this State something is being (lone In
that direction, bhln no measure coin-
mensurate with the vast Interests In-
volved nor the wealth and ability of
the commonwealth to build. It is to
be hoped that the proposed measure of
Issuing bonds by the State to an ex-
tent not exceeding $W.000.000, and
with the proceeds applying half of
the cost of any public highway to
which the county, the towns or private
Interests will contribute the other half.
will become law. Of course, a system
should be devised for the laying out
and construction of each road, and for
the economical and honest dishurse-
ment of the funds. The materials for
good roads In the State of New York
are to be found on almost every mile
section throughout the State. and the
agdtealttral Interest, as well as the
Interests of pleasure driving, are so
emormoum that It is dicult to under-
stand the apathy that bha left the
greater part of the highways in a diea

I It Is our bellef, says iY14 d
Stream, that In America we have too
many cities which are too large ad
a country whleh Is too meagerly pop
ulated. We prophesy a coming dasiw
tegratios of massed populations, and
their distribution lan a more sane and
nladustrially more desirable fashion.
The small town is next to the coas-
try. It ls a better environment for
the young man than is the great
metropoUs toward which so many
turn their eyes. Trolley cars, rural
deliveries, trade catalogues and mail
order periodicals have done very
much to change the Isolation which
formerly went with life In the couan*
try. It Is Improving, and with it m-
proves the condition of life in the
small town.
Heretofore our young men have
left the country for the city. Some
of them were obliged to get there to
succeed in their chosen line of work.
For the young man who has a busi-
nons career in view there is possible
an good a success in a small city as
he may hope for In a great one. If
he has not much money capital, his
personality, his character will more
readily atone for that In a small
town. This is especially true of the
professional man. Indeed, any maq
of intllgenceo may hope for greater
preferuieut In the small centers of
population than In the large.
As to social life and the general de-
cency and comfort of passing through
this vale of tears as conditions exist
even today-and they will be far bet'
t,.r ten years from nlow-a self-re-
specting family has ten times better
chance In a town of 10,000 to 60,000
inhabitants almost anywhere Is
America, than it can by any possi-
blilty hope to have in a city of the
first class. The small town Is a bet-
ter environment in many ways. Not
the least of its desirable qualities la
tie fact that It is closer to the out-
u -doors.

k loving woman s crifidn her vy
life for her children's comfoAt.
These varying phass of life run so
persistently through the news which is
gathered daily from every part of the
country that they have gottento be tale
and matter of fact.
Men merely laugh when a husband
leaves his home and family, or a young
man abandons the girl who trusted him
and was betrayed.
And a woman's devotion is taken as a
matter of course.
It is so common to hear of a mother's
willingness to go through every misery
for her loved ones, that one s apt to
think that men are so absolutely selfish
that they think only of themselves,
that they will gratify their own per-
sonal desires, no matter what the con-
so revalent is the idea that the self-
sacrifice of one man whose story we
shall tell will come like the opening in
a mountain that has been viewed as be-
yond the possibility of ever being cleft:
This man was ill and crippled and far
beyond his first youth. He was ern-
ing 50 cents a day and sending it all to
his invalid wife hundreds of miles away
that the pittance might buy the neces-
sities of life.
That is what one man did. One man
that is known.
But wouldn't you feel safe to venture
that he is but one of many that the
world knows nothing of, and, shame to
say cares less?
Think of a man earning 50 cents a
day and depriving himself of even the
beggarly living that it would briag
him? He had no thought of himself.
His own welfare did not count one iota.
He sent his all to his wife and then
looked after himself. If he starved the
woman would not know. Prohbbly he
lied to her. Very likely he told her he
was getting a dollar a day and was div-
idine with her.
Will that lie count? Don't you think
the Recording Angel forgot to put it
down when it fell on his listening ears?
Consider this man, this true great-
hearted, noble man, and then let vour
mind veer around to the one who leads
a dual life; who gives his wife all she
has need of in mere living, who goes
home to her with a lie in his heart,
who gives her everything but his fidel-
ity: and that's what a wife wants most.
Which of these two wives is to be
pitied the more?
Yes, there are men ani men.-Pa-

"There has been and is now a great
movement all over this State to aecure

of this work has been scattered broad-
cast over the country, and no concerted
effort has been made to reach the peo-
ple of any one wumirry or dautrict, and
to induce them to come to Vlorma in

have no one to encourage them, ante
feel that to stay inm Ftonaa would only
be a succession ci taiiures; therefore,
they leave before they nAve really

"Such is not the case were there

district, as they act as an encourage-
ment to eacn ouher, and when one man
sees another from its home section
maxe a success, it spurs him on to
