Governor Ba-1 lia a very different
man as govergr to what he was as
captain or a tug. He nce appreciated
newspapers, ad they treated him fair-
ly, and now because a few have an-
gered him aa governor he wants the
whole bunch put under a law which
would be detrimental to the best inter-
eats of the state. No other governor
has ever shown sueh evidence of winc-
ing under criticisms of the press, and
consequently have not asked that they
be restricted a publications. Nearly
all of the former governors have re-
tired from ofe with the esteem and
confidence of the newspaper men and
are today warm friends.
The members of the Florida legisla-
ture know that no class of men have
worked harder and for less remunera-
tion to develop and advance the best in.
terests of the state than publishers of
newspapers, and It would be the worst
sort of ingratitude now to pass laws to
further humiliate and to harrass them.
The publishers are mostly men of dis-
cretion. They know right from wrong,
and while one or two may at times
overstep the bounds of propriety, the
whole fraternity should not be made to
suffer for these indiscretions; and it is
to be hoped that the recommendations
of the governor, to gratify his whim,
will not meet with favor or even earn-
est consideration of the law-making
power of the state. -Jacksonville Me-

T he t is no reason why you should suf-
for from Dyspepsia, Constipation, Chills
Sand Fever or any liver complaints when
Herbine will cure you. C. Waite,

A significant fact it is that more than
96 per cent of the school officers and
teachers are opposed to the adoption of
the uniform text book proposition, in
the shape of a state commission to con-
trol and manipulate such matters. They
took action against it at their meeting
in this city Wednesday. Will politicians
persist in trying to build up a political
machine in school book manipulation
4 against even the better judgment and
good will of the best educators? We
shall see! If they do, they shall answer
for it, most assuredly, when they ask
those people to vote them into office
again in the future.

"I Am Glad I Did It."
Andrew Sanders was a fireman on
the Northern Pacific railroad in Mon-
tana. He went out on a run out of his
turn to oblige a friend who had a sick
wife. The fast trains ran together and

Sanders was fatally scalded. An ac-
count says:
"He took the run for the day to ac-
commodate Fireman Taylor, the regu-
lar man of the North Coast Limited,
and he failed to heed the warning cry
of the engineer to jump when thber en-
gine crashed into the two engines pull-
ng the Burlington Flyer. Sanders was
pulled from beneath the engine in a
delirious condition and continued to
'Taylor, old boy,' he would shout,
'I did it all for you. You are a married
man and I am single. I can stand it. I
am glad I did it. God bless you.' "
There are many grimy-handed heroes.
There are brave men in plenty. Here
is one who was brave and generous to
a fine degree. He goes forth to oblige
a friend in distress. He meet with a
fatal accident, and while in the agony
of pain and the presence of death he
thinks of his friend and says: "You
are a married man and I am single. I
can stand it. I am glad I did it. God
bless you." He had made many trips
before. He could not know how this
one would end, but when it ended on
the edge of the grave, he cried, I did

His Dear Old Nether.
"My dear old mother, who is now 83
years old thrives on Electric Bitters,"
writes W. B. Brunson, of Dublin, Ga.
"She has taken them for about two
ears and enjoys an excellent appetite,
es strong and sleeps well." That's
the way Electgie Bitters affect the
aged, and the same happy results fol-
low in all cases of female weakness
and general debility. Weak, puny chil-
