GLEAN4GS FROM
THE STATE PAPERS

Clipping Mad Comment on Several
latestinag Topics.
Tallahassee is now square with the
world. It too, had a first-clas hang-
ing last Friday-the murderer of Su-
perintendentEppes. Even that, how-
ever, failed to place the capital city on
a boom.-Quincy Times.
The True Democrat is not the only
one after the State printer. The Jack-
sonville bar asoeiation passed stirring
resolutions at its session in that city
Saturday condemning the inferior print-
ing of the report of Supreme court.-
White Springs Herald.
It is plain to be seen that all fair-
minded people in Florida are onto the
motives of the Lake City and Jasper
papers, and know who is the man be-
nhid the guns. Th4 Gainesville people.
however, will abide by the decision of
the courts and the people in the State.
It was a fair proposition, and the State
Board of Educatfonal Control will do its
duty. -Gainesville Sun.
Governor Broward 's Everglades drain-
age scheme won him many votes in his
canvass last year, but since the people
have had time to study the question
more closely a strong sentiment is form-
ing against carrying it into effect, and
it is understood that land owners who
are to be taxed to carry on the work
will resort to the courts to stop the col-
lection of taxes levied for that purpose.
-Bradentown Journal.
Congressman Lamar had a large num-
ber of valuable government publications
sent here for distribution at the fair,
but unfortunately they did not arrive
until Saturday night, too late to be
given out. At Mr. Lamar's request we
yve sent him the names of a large
number of farmers who ought to be in-
terested in these matters, and to whom
he will mail them direct. But if your
name should not have been included in
this list and you will write him, either
at Tallahassee or Washington, he will
see to it that you are supplied.-DeFu-
niak Breeze.
What does the Times-Union mean by
charging the State Board of Education
with breach of trust in the university
matter? Had Lake City a divine right
to the school? Was it not an open field
and a fair fight, and did not Gainesville
win in a fair contest? Are the personal
interests of Lake City paramount to the
education of our youth? If the courts
kill the law, where is Lake City bene-
fited? The Legislature, in extraordi-1
nary or regular session would doubtless
re-enact the law, and Gainesville would
win more easily than before. Is Lake
C.ty toting fair under defeat? We,
dCn't expect the Times-Union to answer!
all these questions at once, and, judg-
ing the future by the past, it will ig-
nore all of them. That paper believes
in the majority rule when it is with the
majority. -Levy Times-Democrat.
Those who know anything about pub-
lic matters in Florida understand that a
long and bitter fight will be the result
of the issue involved in the removal of
the University of Florida, no matter
which way the decision of the Supreme
court goes. The entire blame must rest
, n the shoulders of the Board of Edu-
Cation at Tallahassee, that refused to:
carry out its sacredly pledged promises
to the people of Lake City. In fact,;
tie board, with a bold disregard, ig-
nored its obligation in which were in-.
volved both honor and motives of peace,
and reconciliation in promoting institu-
tions of higher education. Never in the
annals of Florida was a public promise
Is flagrantly violated and disregarded.
'e result will be, when all the facts
arc known, that the board alone must
bear the sting and censure of public
opinion and bear the responsibility for
the issue. Technical excuses will not
suffice. Times-Union.
For the first time in the history of
the State of Florida a solid carload of
printed matter will cioss its borders
outward bound. This matter left the

Ge to. Comest abt.
Mr. Richard Bradford, of this county,
passed thomwh the city Weihisday
moranl an route to St. Theresa and
other po-ata on the Gulf coast for a few
day' moreration hunting and fishing,
eand was well prepared for it, for,
besides everything in the way of eata-
bles, hunting and camping equipment,
he had with him on a very light truck,
of his own construction, the prettiest,
lightest and neatest little row or pless-
ure boat we ever saw. It weighed less
than 100 pounds, was prettily deigned,
manufactured of poplar lumber, with a
galvanized iron bottom that came up to
the water mark on the sides and ends.
Mr. B. made the boat himself and of
course feels proud of his work. That
he will get plenty of fish and game is a
certainty, for he is a sportsman and
fisherman of the first rank and knows
almost every foot of the country he has
one to. Many of his Tallahssee
friends "wished they were going with
him" on this trip, and many a covetous
eye was placed on his neat and trim
little boat and other equipment.
Church Board Neetiag.
A board meeting of the official mem-
bers of Trinity M. E. Church, South,
will be held at the pastor's study to-
night November 24th at 7.30 o'clock.
It ia desired that a full membership be
present as preparations for the fourth
quarterly conference, which is to con-
vene at the church on Monday night,
27th instant, at 7.30 o'clock, will be
taken up, besides other matters of in-
terest to the church.
On Sunday morning at 11 o'clock the
pastor will preach a special sermon on
missions.
Constipation.

constipation be present. Many serious

Mr. H. M. Swasey, of Woodland Dell
Fruit Farms, Cleburn County, Arkan-
sas, writes: "Will you please mail mea
capy of your county paper? I wish a
sample copy. We have a number of
families here who are looking to your
State for a future home, and their rep-
resentative will visit your State next
month for the purpose of finding suit-
able locations for them." We have
mailed Mr. Swasey several copies of
ttdis week's issue of The True Demo-
crat, which contains an excellent de.
scriptive article on Leon county and its
advantages; so, you see, your home
paper is ever on the alert to advertise
Leon county and the Tallahassee coun-
try. We have extra copies others might
send out profitably.

Henry D. Baldwin, Sup't City Water

Leen County Pamplet.
The True Democrat office is just
printing the Leon county pamphlet or-
dered some time ago by the County
Commissioners, and copies of it wil
soon be ready for distribution. Every
citizen of the county should endeavor to
have these pamphlets distributed where
they will do the most good, and can
greatly aid the commissioners by send-
ing to the clerk lists of names of non-
residents who may be induced to settle
in Leon county.
Reader, YTo Are the Jude.
We do not run a large double-column
advertisement claiming to be "the best
weekly paper in the State." We pub-
lish a clean, neatly-printed weekly news-
paper, the equal of any, in the State in
appearance and in what's in it; and we
think the newsiest and best published in
Leon county. Just put it and the other
together and draw your own comparison.
The True Democrat speaks for itself.
Christmas Basaar.
The Ladies' Aid Society of the Pres-
byterian Church will hold their annual
Christmas bazaar beginning Friday De-
cember 8. They will have their usual
elegant display of fancy work, suitable
for Christmas gifts, delicious candy and
refreshments. Luncheon, dinner and
supper will be served daily.
The bazaar will be held at the new
store next to the Western Union tele-
graph office, and will open doors at 12
o'clock, and begin selling fancy articles
at 12.30.

The Seaboard Air. Line RallwayCom-
pany having acquired the property and
franchise, of the former Tallahase
Southeastern railroad, extending from
this city to Perry and beyond, through
Leon, Jefferson and Lafayette counties
to the Suwanee river, a new organisa-
tion, to be known as the Tallahaee,
Perry and Southeastern Railway, has
been projected, the charter of which
has been advertised in The True Demo-
crat during the past weeks, with tem.
porary offers as follows: D. E. Max-
well president Geo. P. Raney, vice-
preadent; E. Kyle, secretary and
treasurer.
Contracts have already been let for
construction work on the extension of
the present line, Mr. Blair Burwell, of
Jacksonville, the contractor, having
formerly been chief engineer of the
former Florida Central and Peninsular
Railway. Work has been begun at each
end of the propod new line, and it is
expected to be finished within six
months, completing the main line from
Tallahassee to the Suwannee river.
The route of this extension passes
through the richest timber section of
the State, and when completed, this
road will add much to the already ac-
quired valuable property of the Sea-
board Air Line.
Now that the grading is well under
way, it will be but a short time before
the laying of ties and rails is com-
menced. It will be safe to say that
within another year trains will be in
operation over the new Perry exten-
sion.
The Tallahassee and Southeastern
railway now runs from allahassee to
Wacissa, on the Waciss river, In Jef-
ferson county. The proposed road will
run through Jeffrson county into Tay-
lor county to Perry, connecting there
with the Suwannee and San Pedro rail-
way, now under control of the Florida
Railway Company, at Live Oak.
The building of this road will place a
country in railroad touch which is now
wild and deserted. This road will cross
the Aucills river, the Enconfina river
and Rock creek, a tributary to the Fen-
holloway river, before reaching Perry.
This new road will open up a territory
rich in virgin timber and turpentine
lands, and will no doubt be a paying
investment.
Saved by Dyamlto.
Sometimes a flaming city is saved by
dynamiting a space that the fire can t
cross. Sometimes a cough hangs on so
long you feel as if nothing but dynamite
would cure it. Z. T. Gray, of Calhoun,
Ga., writes: "My wife had a very ag-
gravated cough, which kept her awake
nights. Two physicians could not help
her; so she took Dr. King's New Dis-
covery for Consumption, Coughs and
Colds, which eased her cough, gave her
sleep, and finally cured her." Strictly
scientific cure for bronchitis and la
rippe. At all druggists. Price 0ec. and

We sincerely regret the announcement
of the resignation of Editor Fitzgerald,
of the DeSoto County News. He was
doing some excellent work on that ex-
cellent paper, and has doubtless in view
a larger field of usefulness.
You cannot secure a copy of that
Governor's Message "bound in boards"
now. It has been withdrawn from the
market; but, 'tis said, a new edition is
being gotten out. There are copies of
the first edition stored away, but you
waited too late; you can't get one now.
See!
The Florida press is unanimously
praising the proprietors of the Live Oak
Democrat, whose plant was destroyed
by fire last week, and whose energy
and enterprise enabled them tocontinue
the publication of their excellent daily
and weekly newspapers without losing
an issue. The concern is to be incor-
porated, and an entirely new plant has
been ordered.
Encouraged, perhaps, by Governor
Broward's appointment of a woman as
clerk of the circuit court in one of the
eastern counties, friends of a very pop-
ular lady In Duval county are urging
her appointment as superintendent of
the county schools. There is no official
position in our governmental system so
admirably adapted to the administra-
tion of a good and strong woman as
that of school superintendent.
The Gaineville Sun says: "Florida
is a great State for politics. We haven't
got settled up with the old administra-
tions of Governors Bloxham and Jen-
nings before we have candidates bob-
bing up for the executive chair that
Governor Broward has hardly had time
to get warm." ."General Gilchrist
will show the people how to cook guber-
natorial okra, and Captain Hillman will
show them how to prepare executive
potato pones. If they are not careful
they will ruin the broth"
In noting the announcements for the
State Senate in Leon county, the lira-
dentown Journal remarks that "the
campaign will be a hard and bitter one,
as there are two strong political fac-
tions In Leon county The Journal
has been misinformed. The vote will,
of course, be divided, but only as be-
tween the majority a large one. and

nings-Ililson State printing combina-

hing which will build up and help busi-

Again, we would remind our readers
that The True Dlemocrat, in following
up the "surface indications" of wring.
doing on the part of public officials, has
confined Itself almost exclusively to
matters of public record; that it has
simply pointed their way to) the evidence;
that it is neither judge, jury, pronecut-
ing officer nor investigating committee,
and that in what it has done and said,
or may do or say in future, it simply
aauumes and occupies the rightful |posi-
tion of the public press in relation to, all
of these matters, viz: a sentinel on the
watch-tower, attempting to guard the'
interests of the people'.
The Gainesville Sun claims the credit
of having first proposed the amme of
Senator Crill for the office of (Governor.,
and the i'alatka News acknowledges the
Sun's claim, and says:
"In seconding such a sensible motion
the Palatka News feels that there is
honor enough for one quadrennium
Indeed, as with Schley at Santiago, it
believes there is honor enough in the
name of Crill to reflect glory upon the
entire press of the State, and give
every mother's son of us a feeling of
tatisfactlon such aa ean only come from
a knowledge of duty well performed."

unm" I=S l yI=.


Our loquaesis Oad pugnedleus Lake
City contemporary appears to be still
quite dissatisfed with s, apparently
beamuse it emasot laedme or browbeat
us into saying esdy what it wates s
to say, in preelsely the way it wishes
us to say it, in order that t may make
use of aome sort of terMrfeay crushing
answer that It has prepared, or has in
mind, to the thing which it so aadently
desires us to say; the expected result
of this ingenious combination being our
utter and permanent annihilation.
We have already devoted altogether
too much time and space to the muddled
vagaries of our fat friend, and have
half a mind to take no more notice of
his vaporings; but, since we do not wish
to appear so discourteous to a brother
editor, even under great provocation,
we will dispose of the alleged contro-
versy by remarking, once for all, that
we are conducting The True Democrat
according to our own ideas, and shall
not endeavor to do so according to his.
So far as the subject-matter of the
controversy is concerned, that has been
disposed of long ago. We have, from
time to time, submitted to the attention
and judgment of our readers certain
fact*- mostly, if not wholly, matters of
public record-which we believed the
public ought to know, and would be
glad to know, concerning transactions
connected with the conduct of the
State's business, and which, to us,
spelled that ugly word "graft." With
a single other exception which we men-
tioned last week- the Lake City news-
paper is the only one in the State that
has undertaken to deny anything we
have said. Its methods of denial, by
Inference and circumlocution rather than
by the records which we cite and rely
upon for our authority, demonstrate the
utter weakness of its position as the
self-appointed champion of those whose
public acts have been criticised.
Until the Index--or some other-shall
deny the truthfulness of what we have
said, and cite authority for such denial
as worthy of consideration as the public
records to which we have referred as
our authority, there can be no further
occasion for multiplying words upon the
subject, and we shall devote our atten.
tion and space to more important mat-
ters.

True Democrat by prospective settlers
or homeseekers concerning conditions
existing in this part of the country, and
the burden of correspondence entailed
thereby has become so heavy that we
have attempted, in the descriptive arti-
cle found in this issue, to summarize
such information as is most important,
and to answer the questions most fre-
quently asked. It is hoped by this
means that a sample copy of the paper,
of which a large number have been
sent out, will, in most cases, serve the
purpose intended better than a personal
letter. Specific information may be
obtained by writing to any of the real
estate or other firms whose advertise-
ments appear in this paper; and the
best way to become familiar with local
conditions, progress, industries and cur-
rent happenings, while contemplating
removing to this section, is through

norant of the current history of the
State. or is wilfully shutting his eyes
to palpable truths.
The True Democrat has directed pub-
ic attention to facts which appear of
record, citing its authorities and leav-
ng the formation of Judgment thereon
to its readers. If this has failed to con-
vince, it is not our fault. Some would
refuse to be convinced, perhaps, upon
any kind of evidence. With theze we
ire not disposed to quarrel. There are
plenty who see.

the shape of a pebble labeled "graft,"
with inscriptions thereon referring to

The chief feature of the issue is a
well-written and exhaustive article on
"The Pardoning of Criminals" by Gov-
ernor Broward, reviewing some recent
tensactions of the State Pardoning
Board, in which he pays his respects to
the newspapers as follows:
To be the editor of a newspaper is to
occupy a position that is supposed, or
ought to be,a high and lofty one; and
the editor ought to give expression to a
high public sentiment upon a higher
plane, if the plane is not already high.
We are afflicted with a sprinkling of
editors who sell editorial for so much
an inch, sentiment thrown in. Some
of our people are not aware of this, and
take for granted that the writings of
such scribblers are founded on fact,
that they are the writings of some wise
man-wiser than themselves. Did the
people know that these newspaper writ-
ers did not investigate the matter of
which they write at all, they would not
be so credulous.
If there are any Florida editors "who
sell editorial for so much an inch," the
remarks of Governor Broward concern-
ing them arM altogether too mild. Sum-
mary expulsion from the ranks of the
profession would be too gentle a pun-
ishment to fit the crime with which
Governor Broward charges them. And
if he knows of any such he should, in
the interest of clean methods and public
decency, make known their names and
furnish the evidence upon which to con-
demn them.

weiss guests with a semes bw 1
you are doing twice as meh ztn
work as you have str th health a
time for.
Thanksgiving is really the most whole
some and delightful festival of the year,
It is distinctly our own. We Amerlam
have originated it, and we ought to be
proud of it, yet most of us are doing
much to poll it with overzeal. W4
have too long dinners, too elaborate
decorations, too much house-cleaning
before and after. We are cumbered
with too much care. And so the day
which should be thrilling with tender
memories, joyous with a sense of re-
membered blessings, peaceful with a
surety of forgotten ills, and prophetic
of gladness because of courage and
comfort, because of hope, is just a
weariness of the flesh. We drop ex-
hausted into our chair for dinner and
are glad to say good-bye to the dear,
long-expected guests.
It is partly vanity that makes us
overdo this delightsome festival. We
think we are sacrificing ourselves to
give others happiness, but, in point of
fact, we are straining to create an ef-
fect. We do love to welcome our
friends, but also we do want them to
have the most elaborate dinner and to
see the prettiest dining room in town,
and what they remember longest is just
that the hostess looked ill and that all
the family seemed out of sorts. So it
isn't worth it.
Real hospitality is in what the hostess
gives of herself, not what she gives of
her substance. Do things simply and
have a good time yourself, dear Thanks-
giving mother or aunt or sister. Have
fewer courses and more smiles. Who
is so base a materialist that he wouldn't
give up a chicken pie for a cheerful
hostess?
At the very start, don't wear your-
self out cleaning house and getting
ready. You have got to clean up after
Thanksgiving, so why bother before?
Just have the house brushed and dusted
as you would any week. If the carpet
and wood-work need a little brightening,
wipe them over with warm borax water,
a teaspoonful of borax to a basin of
water. A few minutes will do a room,
without scrubbing or rubbing or fatigue.
Fill a pan with boiling water, add half
a small cup of borax dissolved. Leave
the silver in the water ten minutes,
rinse in boiling water and then dry first
with a towel, next with chamois.-Mrs.
Nellie Gray, in Metropolis.
IKRE'S ANOTHER.
We must beg Appleyard's pardon.
We innocently assumed that there could-
not possibly be such another as he in
the entire State. We were mistaken.
Witness the following, from the Plant
City Courier:
While we very much admire the spirit
of fearlessness displayed by the editor
of The True Democrat, we think him
entirely too strong in his prejudices-
so strong, in fact, that he allows his
prejudices sometimes to lead him into
error. The editor of the Courier did
not support Governor Jennings in his
candidacy for United States Senator,
nor did we always agree with him while
Governor, or since his term expired,
iut we believe in giving even the devil
his dues; and, in all fairness, we must
say that Governor Jennings gave the
State of Florida one of the best admin-
strations it ever had. The editor of
The True Democrat is devoting all his
ime and attention, it seems, in trying
o find something rotten in Mr. Jen-
lings' administration of some threat-
*ned wrongdoing in Governor Broward's
policy of government. There is noth.
ng to be gained b criticising an ad-
ministration that has already passed
nto history, especially so far as it re-
ates to a man who has retired from
wlitics. The mill will never be turned
'ith the water that has passed.
There is an old saying to the effect
hat none is so blind as he who refuses
o nee. It applies in this particular case.

The natural pasturage of Leon county makes it possi-
ble to extensively enlarge this industry with the addi-
tion of some cultivated pastures. The equable climate,
the abundance of water and forage greatly reduce the
labor attached to this work in other districts.
The four annual grasses-the crab grass, crow-foot
grass, barn grass and water grass-furnish the princi-
pal hay supplies, these seed themselves coming up in
abundance when the land is stirred. Besides these, the
Bermuda, sedge and smut grasses are perennial, and
chemical analysis shows them to be rich in nutritive
qualities.
The desmodium, known as the beggar weed, grows
rank and luxuriant after the corn crop is laid by in June.
This weed fully equals clover in its nutritious elements,
and stock prefer it, green or dry, to any other forage.
This weed can be cured and baled in the same way as
other hays. All of these grasses, with sorghum cane,
cattail millet, German millet, cowpeas, cloct beans, tur-
nips', carrots, with field corn planted for ensilage, fur-
nish an inexhaustible supply of forage for stock of all
kinds.
As good water, an abundance of reliable pasture,
mild climate and freedom from cattle diseases form the
principal requisites for successful stock raising and
dairying, the above stated facts place Leon county in
the front in this field of work.

now no vice president, that the elec-

would, according to the constitution,

The government has not revealed its

taken for guarding the palace. The
facts that the president and his fain-

Every one of these patients had
lenty of warnintin that aring down
feeling, pain at te left or right of the
womb, nervous exhaustion, pain in the
small of the back. lencorrhmea, dizzi-
ness, flatulency. displacements of the
womb or irregularities. All of these
symptoms are indications of an un-
healthy condition of the ovaries or
womb, and it not heeded the trouble
will make headway until the penalty
has to be paid by a dangerous opera-
tion, and a lifetime of impaired useful-
ness at best, while in many cases the
results are fatal.
The following letter should bring
hope to suffering women. Miss Luella
Adam.sof the Clunnade Hotel, Seattle,
Wash., writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:-
About to yieatrs ago I wasa great suf-
ferer from a everer female trouble. paijls and
headaches. Thedwt'r reserireiy fortune and
finally told nw that I had a tumor on the
womb and nit under o an operation if I
wanted to get well. I felt that this was m
death warrant, but I spent hundreds of (do.
lars for medieal help, but the tunior kept
growing. Fortunately I corresponded with
an aunt in the New England States, and she
advised me to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg-
table Compound, as it was said to cure tu-
more. I dd so and immediately began to
improve in health, and I was entirely cured,
the tumor disappearing entirely, without an
operation. I wish every suffering woman
Would try this great preparation."
Just as surely as Mis Adams was
cured of the troubles enumerated in
her letter, just so surely will Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound cure
every woman in the land who suffers
from womb troubles, inflammation of
the ovaries, kidney troubles, nervous
excitability and nervous prostration.
Mrs. Pinkham invites all young
women who are ill to write her for free
advice. Address, Lynn, Mass.

Chief Clerk Samuel Roop, of the

coming under his personal observa-

one of those cats was black, and I can
only assume that each expected to
impersonate the dead feline and step
into his shoes, metaphorically speak-
ing, unchallenged. One fellow, a dead
ringer for the unfortunate tabby,
thrashed all the others, and actually
palmed himself off on the storekeep-
er, who knew nothing about the acci-
dent, as the real pet. The grocery
man didn't have the heart to fire him
out when he learned the truth, and
the new cat is waxing as sleek as his
predecessor."- Philadelphia Record.

HORROR OF THE DEEP.

Over Hundred Lives Reported Lost in
Sinking of a Steamer Off the
French Coast.
A London special says: The cross-
channel steamer Hilda, from South-
amptou for St. Malo, struck a rock
and sank off the French coast Sunday
morning. One hundred and twenty-
three lives were lost. Six persons
were saved.
The Hilda left Southampton Friday
night for St. Malo with considerably
more than one hundred souls on
board. Her passage was greatly de-
iayed by a fog in the channel, and.
when nearing St. Malo, she ran into
a severe snow storm, apparently miss-
ed her course and foundered on the
rocks off Jardin light house, three
miles from St. Malo.
The company's steamer Ada. out-
bound from St. Malo,. rescued five ot
the passengers and one of the crew.
The Hilda was built at Glasgow in
1862 and registered I 1 tons. She was
a screw steamer of iron construction,
235 feet in length.
T'ho Southwestern Railway compa.
ny Is as yet unable to give a list
of the Hilda's passengers, nearly all
of whom were Frenchmen, but they
cay that a score booked passage at
stations between London and South-
ampton, and that, to the best of their
knowledge and belief, nine of these
were drowned and only six saved.
The company Is still without re-
liable details as to how the disaster
happened.

in Worklca Appeal to Soldiers
and Sailors.

A mutiny in the Manchuria& army,
Is the latest sensational rumor in St.
Petersburg.
According to the report, the em-
peror has received a dispatch from
General Linevitch, telling him of .a
revolt among the troops, which was
suppress.d only after a regular fight,
In which many soldiers were killed
or wounded.
Forty-two officers are reported t3
have been shot for participation in
the conspi racy. No confirmation of the
rumor is obtainable from the officials
of the war office.
Troops have taken possession of
the Moscow railroad station and the
road will be reopened by means of
railroad battalions. The resumptiott
of traffic on this road insured sup*
plies for the capital.
The workmen's organization Friday
addressed the following appeal to the
soldiers and sailors:
"Comrades and Brothers: For a
long time we have misunderstood eacih
other. Your ollAcors taught you to re-
.ard us as enemies of the fatherland
i.nd as crindnals whom you should


shoot. beat with your whips and
butcher with your bayonets. Our
struggle for the people's freedom and
the people's well being has been de-
rtlted to you as a revolution against
the fatherland, which you are obliged
to suppreis.
'Many of you, believing this, have
shot your own brothers, tilling thO
streets of our towns with blood. The
case is now altered. The eyes of
many of the soldiers and sailors have
been opened. They understand that
all of us are brothers, and that we
are sons of the same nation whose
common enemies are your command.

iderstand that the liberty of the peo-
pie Is their own liberty and the good
of the people their own good.
"The men of the Black sea fleet at
Kronsadt stood against their cout-
manders and signified that they want.

they wanted liberty and they associat-

TO


THE


PUBLIC:


It[is our intention to conduct a first-class furniture business, and we ask a liberal share of your patronage.


Our stock will be found to contain the latest novelties as well as all Standard goods. We are making preparations to be
able to execute promptly any order we may receive for any kind of furniture, and house and office furnishings.
"To fill a long felt want" we will inaugurate a repair department for high grade furniture, which will be in charge of one
of the most skillful workmen obtainable.
It would afford us great satisfaction to be able to announce a strictly cash, pay-as-you-go, policy; but it is our opinion that
in a business the size of ours, in dear old Tallahassee, the plan would not work, still, the merchant who extends credit indiscriminately
must either "lose out" or charge exhorbitant prices in order that the good customer shall pay the debts of the one who never pays.
We may be beaten by some, but we intend to reduce to the minimum the number of those who buy goods on credit of us and never
pay. Persons unknown to us must show us their ability and willingness to pay as agreed upon. By selling largely for cash and in-
sisting upon a strict adherence to a careful credit policy we will be able to offer our goods at the lowest possible figures.
To customers of small means, whose reputation and references show them to be worthy of it, we will extend the installment
plan of purchasing.


If we can offer you the best goods, the lowest
