Tallahasse Fire Compaay.
The Tallahassee Volunteer Fire Com-
pany met Tuesday night in regular ses-
sion in the firemen's all.
The regular schedule of business was
carried out. The most important topic
of discussion was in regard to obtaining
a new fire alarm. The consensus of
opinion seemed to be that a new clap-
per onto the bell in the Presbyterian
church tower, together with the one
already in use, would be a sufficiency4
The matter was referred to a commit-
tee fer investigation.
Don't Spit on the Sidewalks.
Spitting on the sidewalks is liable to
spread disease, it is indecent, it looks
bad, and the ladies might drag their
skirts in it. A reporter, watching for
some great calamity to occur to make
big headlines, happened to hear a prom-
inent lady of the town putting to shame
a crowd of unthinking young men who
had been expectorating in front of a
store on the pavement. The 'raking
over' was justly given and quietly re-
ceived, and it is to be noped those young
fellows will be more careful in the fu-
ture about where they discard their su-
perfluous saliva.
MNeeting of Library Asseciation.
The annual meeting of the David S.

TO T_
AT OFTRADE


MUTEMW CALLu S T CITT COUNCIL.

esetag Casl to rgeaa ta Talia.
has.e., Ma M ght, January
14 at City all..
The recent decision of the Secretary
of Commerce of the United States that
the State of South Carolina could con-
tinue bringing in Immigrants to that
State through the port of Charleston,
and the active interest taken by the
Board of Trade of the City Jacksonville
in the matter of securing a direct line
to that city for the same purposes,.
brings forcibly to mind that the City of
Tallahassee should be aroused and be-
come active in the interest of immi-
grants for Leon county. The tobacco
industry, which is just getting under
headway in the county, promises great
things for our future prosperity, and
the need of labor is already being felt.
To accomplish this purpose there
must be organisation and united action
and a Board of Trade composed of a
majority of our best citizens affords the
the best means to this end. The fact
that such organizations have been cre-
ated and disbanded in the past has no
bearing on the present. Many under-
takings have been commenced and tem-
porarily discontinued but eventually car-
ried to success, and now is the time for
a Board of Trade to succeed in Talla-
hassee. The interest of every citizen
should be centered upon the City and
County where his home is located and
he should Lay aside all differences of
opinion when working for the common
good. Look at the prosperity that has
been brought about by Boards of Trade
in other places, and *hall we who hgbv,
the finest country and the most fertile
lands remain idle and not attempt to
improve our conditions?
The subject of immigrants is one of
the greatest importance to Leon county,
and the citizens (of this county should
avail themselves of every honorable
means to secure worthy immigrants,
but this is not the only avenue through
which prosperity can be increased by
active board of trade. Factories, mills
and other industries may be secured by
properly directed effort on the part of
such an organization. Every citizen of
Leon county should esteem it his duty
to become a member of an organization
whose sole purpose will be to benefit
the entire county.
To the end that immediate organiza-
tion may be had, a meeting of the citi-
zens of Tallahassee is hereby called for
next Monday evening, January 14, 1907,
at 7:30 o'clock, to be held in the City
Hall, over the market, and a cordial in-
vitation is extended to all who feel an
interest in Tallahassee and Loon county.

This place holds a charm all its own. It
is still unmolested by the locomotive's

and her residents seem prosperous and
in a fgret measure cotented. The day
we left Rev. Edgar Wilson, of Talla-

that country, made so petureque by
the omnipotent hand. Truly, nature
was not niggardly in bestowing her

curing an advertiser we would suggest
the service of Mr. Wilson, who is an
ardent and enthusiastic lover of her
