Many a previous life has been dam-
aged by a cyclone of gossip.
If a $100 bank note was promised to
each and every person who would be
present at church on a certain night, no
doubt the congregation would be very
large. How about getting a large a
congregation to bear the gospel where
temralife is promised, without money
and without price? What would cause
the difference?
Untruth cast against a true character
will have no more effect upon it than a
thistledown blown against Gibraltar.
Heaven, sweet heaven, why miss it
when the way is so clear?
If a man truly has religion in his
heart it will positively be seen in acts
of charity and benevolence. One with
the Christ-like Spirit cannot refrain
from assisting his fellow man in the
struggles and battles of life.
What is that endearing something
that fastens you so firmly in the affec-
tions of your parents? 'Tis love. A
shame, a burning shame if you do not
allow that same endearing something
to fasten you firmly into the sympathy
and mercy and affections of God your
heavenly Father.

the popular eharacterisatiom of them rb-
ies. A writer in the Mobile R tr
hands out a lot of good advise *bsh
the average man, woman and lMld
would do well to read and head. An
excerpt is as follows:
Rabies in dogs, being more than oau-
ally prevalent In this part of the ouen-
try this year, it is woth the people's
while to gt acquainted with the out-
ward manifestations of the disease, in
order that they may avoid becoming
victim of it.
The general idea is that rabies ia a
dog is shown by a terrible madness on
the part of the animal, and by the 1ai-
mal s rushing through the streets, froth-
ing at the mouth and snapping at ev-
erything in reach. It is true 'that ,n
.extreme eases of madness dogs are
known to act in this manner, but they
do not froth at the mouth. Their
mouths are dry and dusty.
There are many phase of madness,
from dumb rabies iofurious rabies. In
extreme.cases of dumb rabiea the animal
appears sick, paralysed and daspairlmg.
The ignorant would not suppose t
disease to be rabies, but the salava in
such an animal is quite as deadly as
that of a dog sick of furious rabies.
A dog that has been bitten by a mad
dog developed the disease in from ten
to thirty days. Infrequently arler
than ten days, or later than thirty day.
The disease has been known to take a
year to develop.

It is said that mad dogs are reeo-
nized by their repugnance to water.
This is a mistake. Dogs suffering from
rabies have no repugnance to water,
but simply are unable to drink, their
throats being paralysd. Neither ean
they eat meat or other food. If a og

killed. It must be borne in mind that
the dogdoes not have to bite in alleamse
to transmit the rabies. If there is an
abrasion of the skin of a person's hand
and a mad dog licks the hand, the pois-
on is sure to be transmitted.
It is advised that if one is in the pres-
ence of a mad dog and no easy avenue
of escape presents itself, it is best for
one so situated to stand perfectly still,

The dog moves in a half blind, unintel-

It attacks objects it finds in its path,

of this paper, that board is now clothed
with all the powers and duties with
which it should be entrusted, and if the
Everglades must be drained, some plan
other than that outlined in the proposed
amendment should be discovered and

problem of the dof the ve.
glades is, simply md candidly, tht the
Herald knows nothing about it. Itmay
be diseredtable under the ircumtances
to confess such woeful ignorance, but
why die about it or make any false pre-
The Herald is utterly obfuscated.
On one side is arrayed the Governor
of the State, a number of respectable
and honest newspapers and many repu-
table, upright and intelligent citizens.
These present arguments, which, if
founded on a solid basis of facts and
togic, should convince anyone that the
Governor is right in undertaking to
drain the Everglades.
On the other side, however, there are
a number of capable and honorable
newspapers and a good many patriotic,
able and conscientious citizens who con-
tend that the drainage of the Ever-
glades is impracticable; but, if practi-
cable, is wholly unnecessary and not
worth the cost.
A diligent study of the tomes of ar-
gument adduced by both parties to the
controversy is enough to obfuscate an
abler paper than the Herald. The con-
clusion, therefore, is similar to the one
announced by the old judge, of trite
story, who, after the lawyers on both
sides had finished their elaborate ad-
dresses, proceeded to charge the jury
after this manner:
"Gentlemen, if you believe the at-
torney for the plaintiff, you will find
for the plaintiff. If, however, you be-
lieve the attorney for the defendant,
you will find for him; but, if you are
like me and don't believe either one of
them, the Lord only knows what you
will do."
Those who believe Governor Broward
will vote for the drainage amendment;
those who believe the opposition will
vote against it; but those who are with
the Herald will vote for Sparkman and
Billie Hooker and then take to the
That's the best advice we can give
the voters and we trust that no one will
charge that we have been bought and
paid for it.
Seriously, the only satisfactory way
to reach a just conclusion is to take a
civil engineer and make a thorough per-
sonal inspection of the Everglades.
This will require several kinds of trans-
portation-by boat, by balloon, on horse-
back and 'gator-back, and will take
six months time.
After making such an inspection, the
next thing to do is to sit down and
"figure out" what the drainage will
cost and who will be benefited by it.
And this suggests that, at this point,
the Herald actually has one view,
which, however, is based on the allega-
tions of others.
It is asserted that big corporations,
land companies and rich individuals own
most of the lands in the Everglades,
and that those lands which are supposed
to belong to the State are claimed and
are being sued for by the railroads. It
is stated, too, that these very people
are opposed to having the lands drained.
Now, if these statements are correct,
as it seems that they are, it is a mys-
tery why we should be making such a
great fuss about something which should
not concern us. If the railroads and
land companies prefer mud and water,
saw-grass and solitude, to dry land, let
them have it.
Why should the people of this State
be taxed to improve other people's
lands, especially as the other people are
opposed to it? If this question is with-
out bearing on the problem, then the
concussion reverts to the confession
made in the beginning, that the Herald
knows nothing about the matter. But
it does know that the proposed amend-
ment contemplates the levying of a tax
to drain the Everglades and the placing
of the power tolevy, collect and expend
the tax in the hands of the Internal
Improvement Board, without any lim-
itation as to years or accountability to

take the field in advocacy of the pass-

dignity in such an undertaking as there
is in a Chief Executive traveling around
making abusive stump speeches, slan-
dering newspaper men who differ with
the drainage officials, being as reckless
as was Governor Broward in his talk
about defying courts (as in his Leon
county Munson Pond speech); issuing
official begging proclamations for con-
tributions to circulate campaign litera-
ture, etc. That proclamation would
have been better as coming from N. B.

that a ferry trust or a drainage scheme
either, should be broken up. But watch
and see what the voters of Florida wJm -
do for that proposed joint resolution
along in November, when it comes up
for proper attention. We feel like it
will look as if a Texas tornado had hit
it and then the query of "Who Hit

that gang will of course feel sad.

the DIGNITY of that position in all re-
spects, as did those Governors from

A Florida paper puts the matter in
the proper form when it says that mat-
ter turned out by the "Jacksonville Lit-
erary Bureau,I relating to antidrain-
age, should not appear in the editorial
columns of a paper if paid for without
the advertising marks upon it.'
"There is no objection to printing paid
staff by any agency, provided it will
bear the test for morality, if it is prin-
ted in such a way that it will not have
the appearance of matter which the pa-
r itself got up." The editor of the
Rieporter-Star goes a little farther than
the Sun's proposition. No ready made
matter, whether paid for or not ever
gains admittance to the editorial col-
umns of thl Reporter-Star. While the
matter appearing therein may not meas-
ure up in quality with the product of a
literary or other bureau, it has at least
the merit of originality and the follow-
ing out of a definite plan.
This is not written however in oppo-
sition to the theories of this particular
bureau. On merits of the drainage
question itself and the proposed consti-
tutional amendment, to be voted on in
November, the Reporter-Star has from
the first placed itself on record as not
being favorably impressed with either
The Reporter-Star believes that the
Governor thinks he was elected on the
drainage proposition and that he is hon-
est in his effort to consistently follow
"-0-out the line of his pledge. But we do
not think he was elected specially on
that proposition and doubt the wisdom
of the scheme as outlined.
The proposed constitutional amend-
ment is wider in scope than the Ever-
glades drainage scheme, though it
provides for the inclusion of that pro-
ject, and we doubt also the wisdom of
this measure-for several reasons, am-
ong them that it is arbitrary in the pro-
vision of the drainage commission and
its operation and in effect transfers all
,-the rights of the people, nolens volens,
over the executive department of the
State. Other reasons grow out of these
of greater or less importance sufficient
to set the tax payer to thinking.-Or-
lando Reporter-Star.

No Proof of It n Florida.
In discussing the matter of the com-
mutation of a death sentence before the
Board of Pardons recently in Tallahas-
see, Hon. J. Emmet Wolfe, secretary'
of the board, is quoted as saying: "As
civilization advances a sentiment in
favor of abolishing the death sentence
is growing. In the State of Kansas
there are fifty men under sentence of
death, and no Governor can be found
who will issue warrants for their execu-
Ation. The number of murders commit-
almost daily in Florida proves that!
the infliction of the death penalty does
not deter the commission of crime.'' j
We do not read the signs of the times
as Mr. Wolfe does, but waiving that
question at present, we emphatically
take issue with him on his proposition
that "thenumber of murders committed
almost daily in Florida proves that the
infliction of the death penalty does not
deter the commission of crime." Thpt
way of reasoning won't do, Mr. Wolfe.
Give the gallows in Florida a chance
before you condemn it. How can you
assume that legal executions in this*
State do not deter the commission of
crime, when there are so few such exe-
cutions that they do not constitute a
dose of sufficient size to test the quality
of the medicine? There have been
many murders in the first degree corn-
mitted in Florida during the past year.
and if each of the murderers had b,-en
legally executed, would there Is'
any doubt of the deterrent effect
of such enforcement of the law
upon the criminal classes? The two

or three legal hangings in the State for
(inany months past bear such preposter-
ous proportion to the scores of hanging
crimes committed that they really ad-
$ertise immunity to the murderer, bar-
LAring exceptional cases. Surely Mr.
"'Wolfe cannot seriouslyy claim that hang-
ing one murderer out of a hundred or
thereabout is a fair test of the efficacy
of capital punishment in deterring men
from committing murder. And that's
the only tet wenav had in Florida.-

A Sprilse Party.
Miss Bertha Clark, of Albany, Ga., is
the guast of Miss Ebie Quall for a few
weeks. On Monday evening the young
mple of the city all conspired to give
them a surprise party. One couple
after another "butted in" until the
parlors were quite filled with guests,
watching the expressions of the pretty
hostess at each ring of the door bell.
All kinds of games were played and a
Meral informal good time was en-
joyed by all present. Music was fur-
nished by all who could do so, and Miss
VanBrunt deserves especial mention for
her choice selections.
And the instigators of the surprise
had their eyes open all the time! At
about 10 o'clock another couple came:
Mr. R. W. Cobb, accompanied by a
large ice cream freezer. Cakes had
been sent, and soon all were enjoying
what is known as "Mill's best."
Those present were Misses Kate Mick-
ler, Genie VanBrunt, Susie VanBrunt,
Bertha Jones, Alma Cates, Viva Dick-
erson, Florence Lewis, Pearl McCord,
Ebie Quaile and Bertha Clark, for the
ladies- the men were Wm. VanBrunt,

All indications now point to the fact
that there will be represented at the
State fair, which is to be held at Tampsa
November 14 to 29, an even greater
number of counties than were repre-
sented at the fair last year. Counties
from every section of te State, owing
to the arrangement of the premium lists,
are prepare r-to compete for the large
prices offer, d. and a greater number
will be reprS nted than at any fair in
the history of the South. Our county

ever, will be represented by a magnifi-

county of the fair and, owing to Tama
being the ceon of the fair, it can easily
win points on Industrial and educational
exhibit, which puts the other counties
at a disadvantae. Hillsborough, there-
fore, withdraw@ from the race. Hills-
borough county expects to get her re-
ward from advertiinf her resources to
the thouvnds-of bomeseekers attending
the fair; and for the benefits of the ad-
vertising, even If $15,000 were not of-
fered in premiums, every county in the
State should be represented.

To All Deecratic Voters.
If there ever was a time in the his-
tory of the Democratic party for the
manifestation of loyalty and patriotism
on the part of its members, it is right
If we are to win a victory and elect a
President two years hence, we must
first elect a House of Representatives
this fall. A Democratic House can and
will investigate every department of
the government. With all of them
honeycombed by "graft," the edges of
which, only, have been touched by re-
cent exposure and prosecutions, there
will be a revelation of rottenness that
will astound the country and create a
demand for a Democratic administra-
tion to clean the government workshop.
To win the House we need money to
defray legitimate expenses and get out
our vote. We have no protected mo-
nopolies from which to draw to fill our
offers, as they do those of the Repub-
lican party. We must, therefore, ap-
eal to loyal Democrats for contribu-
