Many of our state exchanges are in-
sisting that the next legislature make
a new apportionment. This in not a
matter of discretion for the legisla-
ture. The Constitution commands that
a new aplportionment be made' by the
first legislature that meetit after- the
state census is taken, and it teIll how
it should he mail. 'The leg iulatur-- has
no option in the matter, arnl it would

constitution men have been in the leg-

had no right to be there, and counties
have been debarred from sending rep-

right to send.
This is a matter too important to be
treated u a mre contest between
counties. We do not believe the major-

not be permitted to override the consti.

Dr. L B. Bouchelle of Thomasville,
Oa., a physician well known In the
South, Is very enthusiastic over the
cod liver oil preparation Vinol. lie
says: "I have us.-d Vtool In tay fam.
fly and In my general practice with
the most satisfactory rtmults. It is
exceedingly beneficial to those afflict-
ed with bronchial or pulmonary dis-
eases and to create strength."
The reason Vluol Is so far superior
to old01 fashioned cod liver oil and
emulsions, is because It Is a real cod
liver preparation from which all the
useless oil has been eliminated and
tonic Iron added.
We ask every weak. thin. run-

to try Vinol on our guarantee.

Which are You Paying For?

The Big Load or the Little Load.
If you have an ordinary heater you are buying the big load of soft coal
where the small load would be sufficient fuel to produce the same
amount of heat in the

The celebrated Hot Blast Down-Draft in the Wilson produces perfect
combustion and the burnable fumes which e3sc:pe in other heaters are
consumed in the Wilson, so that every shovelful of coal in
the Wilson Heatcr will produce 40 per cent more heat than
the same amount of coal in other heaters.
No one likes to waste money-why throw away 40 per

remal College Dermitery Fire.
Sunday morning, at about 1 o'clock,
Tallahasseeans were aroused from
siumber by an alarm of fire which was
found to be in West Hall, recently
Waed partly for dormitory purposes,
musie art domestic ence instruction,
ete. The re was discovered in or near
the lowercentre of the building and must
have ome from defect In the furnace,
and after being discovered burned so
itely that the Inmate barely had
tme to ecape In their night clothing,
very Ulittle, if anything of value, being
-vid. Talaha*ssans responded prompt-
ly, and those unfortunate ones who had
remained over for the holidays. and
meot of whom were young ladies who
had worked to pay their own expenses
through school, were looked after and
Lade as comfortable as possible under
re aumstances.
Among the heaviest losers by the fire
Is Miss -Ines Abernathy, who, besides
I-s all her clothing, had her fine
man sq in number, her life
eek. *ad one a prise painting in Lon-
d Paris, and her entire equip-
*& i y ithc art, wholly 6
ods Ml KoTpp sot her entire

sand elted decoratloins. Miss
ry her domestic scienl e note
IO.anid her personal books, notes
Iad Prof. L. W. Buehhola lost
i an-, ad very valuable library,
a noe ooks, etc. The o=s te
=emers and teachers Is all very
at It represets acumulation of
0e lpeta, vte.. they have spent the
bet pt of their lives in gathering to-


gether. About twenty-seven students
lost what personal effects they had
there, Including that which those who
left did not take with them. The dor-
mitory will soon be replaced, but it will
be next to impossible to replace the
property of Professor Buchholz and;
that of the teachers in the different de-!
partments. As we go to press we are
informed the Board of Control and the
State Board of Education has taken
hold of the matter, and steps will be
taken very soon to erect a new and
Letter and more appropriate building to
take the place of the one destroyed.
In another column will be found an
announcement from President Mur-
phree, which explains itself, and we
copy the following from the Times-
Union of the 24th :
The regret at the destruction of the
dormitory of the Florida Female Col-
lege will be lost in the joy that it in-
volved no loss of life. In a minor sense
the fire could not have come at a worse
time for the weather was not pleasant
yesterday for the homeless, but we
know the people of Tallahassee did not
long permit aWy of the students to re-
main homeless. In a more important
sena the fire, If It was to come at all,
could not have some In a better e,
for if the building had bee fU .N
might have been lost, and ce la
larger number '.f the student

D& F. nM N Moon,
CasG. Mrsas.
For City aExeutive Committe :
Gao. B. PzisKt. Cas&. A. CAY,

During my incumbency of the office of
City Tax Collector I have tried hard to
render faithful and efcient service. I
believe that a large majority of our
people are entirely satisfied with the
aeftIee I have rendered. I believe that
a large majority of our people feel that
there is absolutely no reason why any
change should be made in the office,
and that it would not be wise to put
out of office an experienced man, who
mas proven capable and trustworthy, to
put in an inexperienced man from whom
so better service could be expected, to
"ay the Oast.
Believing as I d, I hereby announce
layself as a candkLtAte for re-election to
Shve office of City Tax Collector.
L For some years I have collected every
fent of taxes due the city, a record I
-believe to be unequalled in any city of
this size. Every year I have collected
Larger percentage of taxes than my
redeeesor in office did, owing to the
act that I gave more time to the
duties of the office than they could.
ih yar tthout exception, when I
ave eloeed my books anid made my
final settlement, the City Council then
n sessiod has highly complimented me
f-' for the splendid show e.
Owing to coantmd health I ve
