Governor Broward has named 225 del-
egates to the Inter-State Sugarcane
Growers' Association, the date and
place of meeting and purposes of which
are set forth in the following from the
L- official notifications:
The fourth annual convention of the
Inter-State Sugarcane Growers' Asso-
ciation will be held in Mobile, Ala. on
February 7 8, and 9, 1906. The Hlon.

Carolina; Mr. W. B. mddenbury of
Cairo, Ga.; Col. R. R. Poole, Commis-
sioner, Alabama and other distinguish-
ed spekaere, will be present and ad-
dress the convention.
The aim of the committee, in select-
ing speakers and essayists for the occa-
sion, has been to make it educational in
every branch of the subject, and histor-
ical in the evolution of every sugar-
producing plant within the limits of the
United States, upon the broadest line
of thought, experience and actual re-
The composition of the convention, to
make it thoroughly representative, will
consist of delegates as follows: Five
delegates from each county or parish in
each State named above, appointed by
the Governor of the State.
Each sugarcane planters' association
is entitled to five delegates; each agri-
rcultural association, five delegates;
each commercial organization, five del-
egates; industrial departments of rail-
roads, two delegates each; and each
State agricultural department, two del-
It is desired that each county in FIlr-
ida be represented at this, probably the
most important gathering of farmers
and citizens, ever held in the South.
A True Democrat.
The following definition of a Demo-
crat is by Congressman John Sharp
Williams, minority leader in the lower
house of Congress. It occurs in a letter
written last summer to Congressman
Lamar, whose recently acquired radi-
calisms led to his placing himself in a
position where he was made the laugh-
ing stock of the entire House of Repre-
"A true Democrat is neither a con-
servative nor a radical. He is both.
He is conservative when it comes to
conserving, or preserving, or saving
right and Democratic and American
things. He is radical when it comes to
tearing up by the roots radical abuses.
He is simply Democratic always, and
meets each question upon its own mer-
its from a Democratic standpoint and
solves it with plain common sense.
Common sense frequently suggests that
a cause can best be. carried to success
by going slow. Common sense fre-
quently also suggests that a battle can
best be won by an impetuous charge.
Everything depends upon the condition
of the ground, the situation of the
enemy and your own forces.
"There is no such thing in my dic-
tionary as a conservative Democrat.
There is no such thing in my dictionary
as a radical Democrat. There is just
one thing-a Democrat. Too many men
who call themselves conservative Dem-
ocrats are really at heart Republicans.
1t Too many men who call themselves
radical Democrats are really at heart
Populists or Socialists, as the case may
be-the two things being, by the way,
by no means the same thing.
"A party cannot win ultimate success
by having its differences emphasized.
There are always differences, of course.
The way to wmin ultimate success is to
minimize differences, as far as possible,
|^ without sacrifice of fundamental princi-
pie. and to emphasize agreed pur-
poses." ____
A Tragic Fla lsh.
A watchman's neglect permitted a
leak in the great North Sea dyke,
which a child's finger could have stop-
ped, to become a ruinous break, devas-
tating an entire province of Holland.
In like manner Kenneth Mclver, of
Vanceboro, Me., permitted a little cold
to go unnoticed until a tragic finish was
ony averted by Dr Kin.'s New Dis-
covery' He writes- "Three doctors
gave me up to die of lung inflammation,
caused by a neglected cold; but Dr.
King's New Discovery saved my life."

"A soft answer turneth away wrath

Dea't Adrtise.
Dun't advertise if you believe you are
wasting money, says the Gainesville
Sun. Let your competitor waste his
money on advertising and perhaps in
this way you'll soon "put him out of
business." Fix his elock-works for him!
Just stand back and laugh at him when
you see him squandering his money for
printer's ink. Once there was a boy
named John-we think his last name
was Wanamaker, or maybe it was
Moneymaker. Anyhow, his name was
John, with some sort of maker attached
to his last name. He owned fifty yards
of calico three yards of jeans, a half
dosen pairs of boots. He called this a
dry goods store through a Philadelphia
newspaper and offered to sell a pair of
socks for 89 cents. The don't believe-
in-advertis merchant laughed. Young
John spent with the Philadelphia
LKdger to advertise just one time and
hadle than $100 worth of gooda. He
was cautioned by the merchants who
"knew it didn't pay" It was through
sym pathy that tey offered him advice.
But Johnr didn't listen to them and went
and blew his money in foolishly and to-
day poor John sees the results of is
miadoings-he has so many large dry
goods stores that he can hardly find
time to study his Sunday school lesson.
There are many men who will say
that there was a field open for just such
advertising, yet there are many spots
where similar fields can be opened by
careful attention to this branch of the
management of a large or small store.
The people all over the country are
watching for bargains and if you are in
the habit of giving them they will
watch you.

pation is in danger of many serious ail-
ments. Orino Laxitiv Fruit Syrup

gestion and stimulates the liver and

Harper's Weekly says that one after-
noon recently there entered a hospital
in the poorer quarter of Philadelphia a
little girl of about eight years, bearing
in her arms a fox terrier whose forefoot
had been crushed by a heavy wagon.
To the attendant who tells the story
the little girl explained that she desired
to have the doctors "fix the doggy's
foot." The physicians were for re us-
ing the case at first, but, in view of the
great distress of the youngster, they
finally permitted their good nature to
get the better of them. Chloroform,
instruments and bandages were pro-
duced and a neat operation was per-
formed, the child bravely assisting.
"Now," said one of the doctors,"
"you may take the dog home with
you. '
The little one's eyes widened, "Oh,"
she explained, "it ain't mine! I jest
found it, an' I think you oughter take
care of it."
And off she went, leaving the dog in
their custody.
That is a very pretty story and one
which should be read to children and to
folks generally.
The men and women of the future
will be kind to one another if the boys
and girls of today are taught to be con-
siderate of dumb animals and sympa-
thetic with their afflictions.
Rev. Carlisle P. NMarti, LL. D.
Of Waverly, Texas, writes: "Of a
morning, when first arising, I often find
a troublesomecollection of phlegm which
produces a cough and is very hard to
dislodge but a small quantity of Bal-
lard's Hoarhound Syrup will at once
dislodge it, and the trouble is over. I
know of no medicine thaais equal to it,
and it is so pleasantto take. I can
most cordially reefimend it to all per-
sons needing a medicine for throat or
lung trouble." For sale by all drug-

Neither Defender mer Apoleoist.
Rev. A. M. C. Russel, President of
the Educational Association, County Su-
perintendent of Publit Instruction of
Hemando county, and editor of the
Southern Argus, published at Brooks-
ville, gets off the following, which we
believe he is consistent in and means:
"The Southern Argus is neither a de-
fender nor apologist of railroad or' oth-
ther corporations, nor their prejudiced
enemy, but feels that a public journal
representing the interests of the whole
people, it is its duty to criticise them
when they are wrong, and its privelige
to approve their acts when they de-
serve approbation. It wears neither
the collar of railroad corporations nor
blatant demagogues. Untrmmeled
and indepeuden t, it marches and bat-
tles under the banner of "the rtlhts of

the entire people," and by that decla-
ration and principle it will stand or falL
Money cannot buy its principles, nor
threats of vindictive prejudice drive it
from the path of duty.

beautiful reception Thursday evening
given by Mr. and Mrs. George W. Saxon
at which they formally presented to
society their lovely daughter, Lucile,

ful daughter of Mrs. B. A. Meginniss.
The beautiful home was artistically
decorated for the occasion. In the IF-

bamboo, sprengeri and maiden hair
ferns, with white chrysanthemums,
carried out a dainty effect in white and
green. The same effect was given in
the parlor with white roses, save for
the pretty touch of color given by a
vase of American Beauty roses. Red
was the color used in the hall, and also
in the music room, where white japon-
Icas were banked against the mantel.
In the receiving party were Mr. and
Mrs. Saxon, Miss Lucile Saxon, Miss
Bershe Mginnisa, Miss Bessie Saxon
and Mrs. B. A. Meginniss.
Mrs. Saxon wore a handsome gown of

rooch. Mrs. MU4nniss was gowned in
black silk with ucehess lace.
The fair debutantes stood under a
shower bouquet of white chrysanthe-
mums, which was suspended from the
chandelier by white ribbons, and were a
lovely picture of girlish grace and
beauty against the background of green.
Both wore exquisite gowns of white
radium silk, built on white satin, with
girdles of cloth of silver, with dainty
garniture of white chiffon roses and
green leaves about the neck; each wore
a pearl brooch and carried an armful of
bride roses, and were as dainty and
fair as an artist's dream of lovely

her pretty gown of white voile. Mrs.
Bond, a recent bride, was lovely in her
wedding gown; Mrs. Messer also wore
her wedding gown, and looked extremely
In the dining-room the color scheme
of pink and green was effectively car-
rid out.
Pink satin ribbons, caught with
maidenhair fern, were festooned from
the chandelier to the corners of the
table, each end being caught with a
pink carnation; a handsome centerpiece
of Cluny lace almost covered the table;
on it were silver candelabra, with pink
shades, and a handsome silver service,
from which Mrs. Eugene Perkins, grace-
ful and pretty in a gown of pink crepe
de chine, served coffee.
Pink carnations were caught in the
festoons of bamboo above the windows,
and a tall cut glass vase, filled with the
same exquisite flowers, adorned the side
board. The cut glass candelabra on the
sideboard had pretty shades of pink tu-
lips. The mantel was banked with
pink roses. Here delicious refresh-
ments were served by Miss Clifton
Byrd, Miss Eunice Rawls, Miss Fannie
Coles and Miss Jennie Myers, a quar-
tet of pretty girls in dainty frocks of
pink organdie.
The refreshments were turkey, salad,
sandwiches, olives and beaten biscuits,
In the hall Miss Mary Calhoun and

A spider carefully wove his net in the
corner of the room, and waited for a
victim. By-and-by, seeing a fly mean-
dering along in that direction he invited
him in to chat awhile, casualy offering
to set 'em up as an extra Inducement.
"May I ask,' said the fly, ashe brushed
a bread crumb off his left eyebrow with
his front foot. "why you are so blamed
anxious to strike up an acquaintance
with an entire stranger? So far as I
know, you never saw me before in your
life." "True," replied the spider, as
he fastened another strand- "but as
soon as I saw you I was stuck on your
appearance, and determined that you
were the individual I had been looking
for to go in with me in a great business
venture. I can see in a minute that you
have a great head for business." But
the fly. instead of being taken
this sort of talk simply said: "My
fussy-headed duffer, I might possibly
be caught by the sort of glucose you
are giving me, if it wasn't for the fact
that I see the remain of a friend of
mine from Missouri hanging up there in
the corner of your establishment. He
had to be shown-I don't." And with
a light "Tra, ta-I will see you later,"
the fly wended his way toward the bald
head of a fat man who was slumbering
on a neighboring couch.-The House-
Mr. D. J. Apt, manager of the El

A. B. Canman, Chicago, writes March
4, 1908: "Having been troubled with
lumbago at different times, and tried
one physician after another, then dif-
ferent ointments and liniments, gave it
up altogether. So I tried once more,
and got a bottle of Ballard's Snow Lin-
iment, which gave me almost instant
relief. I can cheerfully recommend it,

Richard A. McCurdy, as president of
the Mutual Life, drew $150,000 a year.
McCall, of the New York Life, drew
$100,000. Even the Frenchy little Mr.
Hyde, of the Equitable, drew $100,000.
None of these was worth the salary
paid, and in no other business in which
ability and worth are properly esti-
mated could any of them command or
earn such sums as they received. Men
in positions requiring long training,
study and experience or great learning
and large ability, receive no such sala-
ries as were paid these insurance graft-
ers. Admiral Dewey's salary is $13,6'00
a year. General Chaffee, chief of staff
of the army, receives $11,000. Admiral
Togo's salary is only $3,000. The com-
mander of a battleship receives $3,500 a
year, and so does a colonel in the army.
The Viceroy of India, head of the gov-
ernment of 300,000,000 people, receives
$756000 a year. The President of the
United States gets $50,000. A cabinet
officer's pay is $8.000 a year. That of
a senator or representative, $5 000. The
salary of the Chief Justice of the Su-
preme Court of the United States is
$13,000 a year, while the Associate Jus-
tices receive $112,500 each.
Long years of study and experience
are required to produce a leading edu-
cator. The dean of college presidents,
Dr. Eliot, of Harvard, receives $10 000
s year. The average pay of college
professors is $2,000. Some are paid as
high as $4,000 in Cornell, and a few as
much as $8,000 in Columbia, Harvard
and Chicago.
A few ministers in rich churches are
paid as high as $10,000. The salary of
ministers is oftener from $2,000 to
$8,000. The salary of an Episcopalian
bishop ranges from $8,000 to$ 12.500.
A Methodist bishop receives $3,500.
Emerson, who wrote his name high
up and indelibly, lived on $1,000 a year.
The list might be extended to great
length, and made to include statesmen,
warriors, prelates, scientists, teachers
and men of genius, high accomplish-
ments or great ability in the world of
thought and achievement. The matter
of salary does not seem to measure a
man's worth or ability. A base ball
player may receive as much as a United
States Senator and a prise fighter
more than the President of the United
States. An insurance president has re-
ceived three times as much, while a
bank robber has been known to acquire
six times as much in a single night -

A jolly party of school boys, 150 im
number, rolled under the union station
shed at noon yesterday on a s'p
train over the Atlantic Coast Line from
Bashaws, Ky., en route to Eau ,alle,
on the East Coast of Florida.
The special was in charge of Joseph
H. Settle, city passenger agent of the
Louisville and Nashville Railway at
Louisville, who went through with the
train to Eau Gallie.
This special contained the students
from the Kentucky Military Institute,
which has established a winter colleen
at Eau Gallie. On the special was Col.
Charles Wesley Fowler, M. A., C. EL,
superintendent of the institute.
At Eau Gallie the students will enter
the Sarno Hotel, which has been se-
caured for winter headquarters. This
hotel is located on the Eau Gallia river,
a half mile from the Indian river.
As soon as the train stopped under
the shed the students piled off and
rushed into the union station restau-
rant, where they secured sandwiches,
coffee, etc.
Tite special did not remain in Jack-
sonville long, but while it was here the
boys attracted much attention as they
nustled about the station. It left over
the Florida East Coast Railway for
Eau Gallie.
On Saturday, immediately after the
cadets returned from the holidays, the
whole school, boys, faculty, family and
servants, took the special train for the
orange groves of Florida A short stop
was made yesterday at St. Augustine.
The special will return about April 1,
going to the Blue Grass region via a
different route, giving the students a
chance to see the various interesting
sections of the sunny South. The re-
turn route will be as follows: Eau Gallie
to Jacksonville, Florida East Coast
Railway; Jacksonville to Tifton, Atlan-
tic Coast Line; Tifton to Macon, Geor-
gia Southern and Florida Railway;
acon to Atlanta, Central of Georgia
Railway; Atlanta to Chattanooga,
Western and Atlantic Railway; Chatta-
nooga to Nashville. N. C. & St. L. Rail-
way- Nashville to Bashaws, Louisville
and Nashville Railway.

A. H. Thurnes a well known coal op-

el and stones with excruciating pain.
I got no relief from medicine until Ibe-
gan taking Foley's Kidney cure, then
the result was surprising. A few doses
started the brick dust like fine stones
and now I have no pain across my kid-

A Card of Thanks.
Editor True Democrat: Please allow
me space in your columns to express
my most sincere appreciation and ex-
tend my heartfelt thanks to the people
of Tallahassee for the expressions of
friendship and support which were em-
bodied in a telegram to Mr. J. M. Barr,
president of the Seaboard Air Line
ailway Company, in my behalf, after
receiving the news that I had been
summarily discharged from my position
as agent here, without any cause or
reason, and without any notice of their
intention to take such action. I wish to
thank you all individually through this
medium, and assure you that it most
gratifying to me to know that the peo-
pie of our city realized that we were
doing the best we could to render satis-
factory service to both the railroad
company and its patrons, hampered by
lack of sufficient clerical help to serve
either properly. I wish also to explain
that the only reason for my removal
from this position was the fact that I
had insisted on being allowed additional
help, which has been a necessity keenly
felt by every agent who has held the
position for the past ten years.
Respectfully yours,
Oaly *X Tears 01d.

anything you wish information on, con-

propert l h la that It is becoming
veTy to secure tenants tt are
iadustuib- sad reliable to rent to, who
will akote reps do their places, sad al-
most next to impossible to hire men for
wages to enable them to put in as large
crops as they would like. There are
several reoso for this state of affairs,
among which is the fact that too many
able-bodied men who should remain on
the farm are moving to the cities and
towns, where they catch a few hours'
work occasionally and loaf most of their
time, in idleness or about the streets,
and who perhaps have their women
folks and children employed, which
helps them in a manner to eke out a
poor, but easy living. Another reason
is that numbers of them are leaving the
farms to work at the mills and on the
railroads that are now being constructed
in different parts of this State. It is
unfortunate that they give up farming,
which affords them work year in and
out, at not, perhaps, as much pay as do
the jobs in these other enterprises, but
of which, if they are honest and indus-
trious, they can make a living at much
easier and be at home with their fami-
lies, than they can in these mew fields
where it costs them a great deal more
to live and very little, if any, to send
home to sustain their families. It is
not so much against those who leave
for what they think betters them, as it
is against those who stay in idleness,
that the largest kick can be justly
made. It is a shame, and a hardship
on the industrious working class of both
races, that so many great, strong, able-
bodied men and boys are allowed to
loaf around the towns, in country vil-
lages and in the country on the farms,
and be in idleness the greater portion
of the time. Florida now has splendid
vagrant laws, and it does seem that if
the remedies were properly applied, at
least a fair per cent of these gentlemen
of leisure could be made to prefer mak-
ing a living working daily at some hon-
est labor, rather than to live on a long
suffering but patient people in idleness.
Once give such elegant (?) gentlemen
to understand they must get some hon-
est work for themselves or they will be
made to do service as vagrants, and
things will change. Make them work
or make them leave here for good Try
the remedies provided just a little bit,

be the result.

Whsm twitted by Mr. Clayton of
Alabama, the t that the Repub-
lica party pwmitted slavery in the
Philippines, Mr. Hll, of Connectiut,
made a "catchy" remark, when hbe re.
pled: "Oh, yes, and we would bate
slavery in this country today if it had
not been for the great P-pbwlem
party." In this ase, as in mot others,
the "catchy" remark was intended to
divert attention from the merits of the
discussion. For any other purpose it
was worthless.
The fact that the Republican party
abolished slavery forty years ago and
tolerates it now, was the point that Mr.
Clayton was making, and Mr. Hill's
"catchy" remark, while probably draw-
ing more or less of applause, was an
admission of Mr. Clayton's charge of
The abolition of slavery is the one
result which the Republican party has
accomplished, which the people, with
practical unanimity, approve. It was
accomplished in violation of law, in re-
pudiation of compact, and in gross in-
justice; but the people-even the South-
ern people, who lost their all by it-are
now so well pleased with the result that
they are willing to ignore the method
of its accomplishment and forget what
it cost them.
It would require no violation of law,
no repudiation of compact and no injus-
tice to abolish slavery in among the
Moros. The Moros could be liberally
paid for their slaves. If slavery had
been as cruel in the South as its bitter-
est antagonists pretended, it would still
have fallen far short of its horrors in
the Philippines. Mr. Clayton speaks
for the South when he says to the Re-
publican party, Live up to your princi-
ples and abolish slavery in the Philip-
pines. -Times-Union.
If the Tallahassee Democrat don't
watch out it will become known as the
common scold of the State. It is for-
ever finding fault with somebody or
something. It sees nothing good in a
political enemy and nothing in a po-
litical friend. This is perhaps a reason-

ably good platform if it is not carried
to excess, as the Democrat seems de-
termined to do.-Tampa Herald.
We must have hit some close friend
of the Herald to have brought forth
such a condemnation. Can't help it.
It's better to have the Herald call us
names than to sit with closed eyes and
ears when crookedness is going on. But
we want to assure the Herald that we
have no "political enemies"-nor any
other save those who show that they
are enemies to truth, good order, good

we must first of all, and before all else,
have good citizens. Burke's well known

When we find any self-governing com-

we can safely and fairly believe that it
does not deserve a better fate. It may
indeed wish to be well governed, just
as many a drunkard, in his seasons of
repentance and headache, wishes he
were temperate; just as many a de-
faulter, as yet undetected, in saner mo-
ments wishes he could repay what he
has taken, and feel himself once more.

not wish hard enough to keep away, the

John Steta. avelw ity, DeLand,
True Democrat: The winter term
opened January 3, with a great in-
crease. The fall term was large and
exceedingly prosperous. Last year a
decided forward movement began. The
clouds that hung over the University
began to break. The sun is now shin-
ing on it full and clear. The sky was
never so blue or so full of hope. A
charming lady of this State wrote to the
new president last year that she hoped
he would bring the University out
"clear as the sun, fair as the moon,
and as terrible as an army with ban-
ners. "
Every one at Stetson University has
been quickened and revived. No one is
living back in the days of the past, but
in January, 1906, and we are stepping
out into the new year forgetting the
things that are behind and reaching for-
ward to the things that are before. All
have plucked up courage. The vrofes-
sors are doing their work with increased
energy and enthusiasm. The cheerful
face, the glad eye, the pleasant greet-
ing, the quick step are all evidences of
the hopes that burn in us all.
Mr. John B. Stetson, in the last eight
months, has added to the income from
the endowment fund the sum of $15,600,
making $48,000 to meet current ex-
penses. The money was used to wipe
out a deficit, to pay teachers' salaries,
to put in readiness 26 new student
rooms, to repaint the buildings and to
improve the grounds. Last winter 26
students from the University of Chi-
cago were in the University and there
are four times the number registered
now than at this time last year.
The religious and moral life of the
University has been greatly blessed.
The whole student body has attended
the Bible readings of the president.
This past fall the Gospel of St. John,
the Book of Amos, the Book of Esther,
the Two Epistles of St. Peter, the Let-
ter of James, the Book of Hebrews and
Paul's Letters to the Corinthians, the
Ephesians and Timothy, have been read.
The Vesper services also have been at-
tended by hundreds. This service is
greatly loved and prized by the citizens.
President Lincoln Hulley has addressed
the students each Sunday afternoon.
His subjects have included Character
Building, the Investment of a Life. the
Temptations of College Students, the
Mastery of Self, the Struggles of a
True Christian. etc. The Christian As-
bociationsof the University have a great
deal of vitality and are doing excellent
work. The piaye-r circle, composed of
teachers and students, have carried on
an active campaign of personal Chris-
tian work with individual students.
The Rev. D. J. Blocker and the Rev
H. B. Gibbons, two consecrated minis-
ters of the gos) e have brought the
discipline and the mral tone of the
dormitories to a very ii'-h plane. Dean
Smith has exercised such close super-
vision of class attendance and class
standing as to drive every loafer to the
woods We do not want, and we will
not have idlers, incorr gibles or vicious
people on our rolls.
Ti.ere have been many improvements
and enlargements all through the Uni-
versity this year. The buildint-s have
been repainted, the plumbing has been
perfected; every part of the Universit3
needing the lea.t bit of carpentry has
been attended to. The laundry has had
new tubs, new boilers, machines and a
lot of appliances put in. All the build-
ings have received some new furniture,
rugs, mats, carpets and complete fur-
nishings for 26 rooms. Seven hundre(
doulla:. has been spent in books. T'wo

year 12 new courses of study and will

offer 12 additional ones next -year
Three extra instructors have bex-n add-
ed to the faculty. one to the ci air of
chemistry, one in the school of peda-
gogy and one in the school of music.
Among the new chemistry courses arr
courses in physical, sanitary, industrial
and agricultural c iemistry The Nor I
fnteal School has been reorganized also.
Its courses have been extended, the
practical is being emphasized, and the
work is correlated with that of the I
State in education
The Music School has never been so
active. Prof. Morse is an artist; he
has the soul of a master; he is all a
tingle with his music. His orga re-
citals, his reproductions of oratorios
and operas are a unique feature of the
University ufe tht year. ly thap.

Morse was educated in music by the
highest in the professimon in Enland
and Australia. He has a gle club of
20 male students. He has a University
Choral Society of 00 voices, augWmnMted
by the music lovers of DeLamd. The
choral society has rendered the Meiah
and the boys have rendered the Boston-
ian's Robin Hood and given a great
esacert of flM Uef fall.
Florida for Christ is the University's
watchword. This is not meant in any
little, mean, narrow sense. The Un-
versity Is broad and generous in its
sympathies. It gives the glad hand of
fellowship to every common school in
the State, out in the highways or io the
pine woods; to every high school in
every town and city of Florida, and to
every college, academy and private
school in the State. There should be
no jealousy among the workers. All
are helping in a fight against ignorance.
All should work harmoniously. As long
as the work is done, why should any
one care who does it? The important
thing is that the work be done. That
is the attitude of Stetson University.
It is only a little factor itself among
the many that are building up a future
for Florida. Every newspaper, every
public school, every minister of the
gospel and his congregation, every in-
vestor and promoter, the railroads, the
business enterprises, the builders of
towns and cities all are agents in the
building up of the commonwealth and
our glorious twentieth century civiliza-
tion. Stetson University wishesa happy
new year to all.

The Popular Liver Medicine
Will Keep You Well
A GUARANTEED CURE for all diseases produced by TOR.
PID LIVER and IMPURE BLOOD. Do not fill your system
with Arsenic, Calomel and Quinine. They act as rank poisons
which vitiate the blood. debilitate the system, and leave a trail
of bad symptoms which require years to obliterate. HERB-
INE is purely vegetable and contains no mineral or narcotic
poisons, is absolutely harmless and is the simple remedy of
nature. It carries off all poison in the system and leaves no
injurious esects.
Mr. L. A. Hicks, Iredell, Texas, says: I was
sick in bed for eight months with liver trouble, the
doctor seemed to do me no good. I was told to try
Herbine, and it cured me Jn a short time. I cannot
recommend this wonderful medicine too highly."

January 12. by Miss Bertha Foster, of
the Departmer t of Music of the Florida
College for Women. Mr. J. A. Turner,
Jr., of Tampa. I ad promised to give
two or three violin numbers during the
evening. Mr. Turner has been called
to another part of the State for this
week, and thet efre the recital has been
deferred until Friday evening of next
week, at the .Tme place. Mis Foster
comes to the College for Women from
the Lucy Cobb Institute. of Athens,
Ga., and is an organist of great ability.
Her recital is sure to be a treat, and
should be enjoyed by a large number.
It is to be regretted thatTallahasaee
does not possess a large and magnificent
pipe organ such as artists are aecus-
tomed to give recitals upon, but it is not
likely that any one will be disappointed
on the evening of the 19th. To this re-
cital the people of Tallahassee are most
cordially invited. There will be no ad-
mission fee.

The Willis school, taught by Mr. Joe
Gray, secured the two extra months

humble opinion that very few of the
country schools will receive any benefit
from this law, unless the Legislature
had gone further and passed a compul-

Tewa Tapics Owns Tom Watsea's
One of the most sensational develop-
ments of the week was brought out in
New York on January 2d in the case
of William D. Mann, of Town Topics,
Fads and Fancies, etc., against Norman
H1ayiood, editor of (Colier's Weekly,
on the char f of criminal libel, is the
testimony of the treasurer of the Town
Topics Publishing C(ompany, whonwears
that Tom Watson's Magazine in owned
by Town Topics.
It will be recalled that Collier's
Weekly ha., been very active in expos-
ing what it termrn'ed the venality of the
Town Topics pu bliv'ations Evidence
has been submitted in abundance show-
ing where worthy citizens have been
forced to pay sums ranging all the way
from $2,.0() to 16,(sJ for sulbsriptions
under threat of being attlicked through
the Town Topism publications, jf they
did not do no.

treasurer of the Town Topien Publish-
ing Company, under oath, wai a star
One of the strangest and most unex-
pected developments of his testimony
was the sworn statement of Secretary
Daniels, of Town Topics, that the pub-
lication known as Tom Watson's Maga-
zine is a subsidiary publication of Town
Secretary Daniels' sworn statement,
stenographically reported, in as fol-
"What are the subsidiary companies
of Town Topics?"
"The Efs Ess Publishing Company,
which has the same officers and board
of directors, but not the same stock-
holders; the Tom Watson Magazine, of
which I am treasurer, but in which
Colonel Mann holds no office; the Tales
Publishing Company, of which I am
treasurer, and the Publishern' and
Printers' Realty Company, which has
only a charter, never having done buni-
nems "

Over 70,000 pounds of matter will be
mailed at the postoffice herm by the
Record Company this week. Every day
dozens of mail sacks are filled and sent
to the postoffice. This huge volume of

an edition of 250,000 was printed. In
addition to this is also the Alexander

This edition numbers 40,000, and, com-

The Supreme Court convened Monday
for the January term, and on Thursday
heard oral arguments in the habeas
corpus cases from Escambia and Duval
counties in the "Jim Crow" street ca.
matters. After the court decided, some
months ago, that the law passed at the
last session of the Legislature was un-
constitutional, Jacksonville and Pensa
cola passed ordinances requiring sepa-
ration of the races in street cars. In
both cities the test was again made by
negroes, and the provisions of the ordi-
nances sustained, and the cases were
again brought before the Supreme
