st n. Some 1,0 hands are soem-
pied n the warehouse work; for
muhe depends on the manner In which
the crop is cured, selected and packed,
and the cigar manufacturer is ver
particular when purchasing to have this
part of the work completed n the most
careful manner.
The first tobaeoo is usually received at
the curing sheds in July, and the ware-
house work on the entire crop is barely
finished by the following July. Thus
this class of work on a given crop prac-
tically represents twelve months labor.
The field work, from the preparation of
the seed beds until the crop is housed
furnishes employment to about 6,000
hands (men, women and children), whose
services are required constantly.
In the warehouses wages are paid
weekly and on the fields every two
weeks; and as the tobacco operatives
have no time to attend to gardens or
home crops, they are practically non-
producers. Thus all of their wages are
and out to the Quincy merchants, ad
thi large ash trade explains the mar-
velous development of the town's mer-
cantile interests. It is also a great ad-
vantageo o the employ, a retail prices
for staples are, as a rule, lower than
in the larger cities, and very fine stocks
of goods are carried in the stores. A
fine market is also furnished for the
farmers of Gadden county,and and all of
their live stock and farm produce is
sold at home. In addition to what is
grown in the county, hundreds of ear-
loads of meat, meaL corn, hay etc.,
are requirquired annual to mpt the
wants of the people.
The waes of wa-ehuse and Afeld
hands represent about IM0 enthly,
or more than P900,000 annually, wand to
fwrtilise the crops there are required
about 12,000 tons of cottonseed meal
and hulls, and about 4,000 tons of pot-
ash and other fertilizers, representing
a cost of about $500.000, not including
the value of home fertilizer produced
on the farms. In addition to these
items, the outlay for implements, live
stock and other supplies must be added
as an expense of producing the crop,
and in the way of improvements the
curing sheds, dwelling houses and shade
structures represent a very large item.
Hundreds of mechanics are employed
in carrying on these building opera-
tions, and it may be mafely asserted
that every one in Gadsden county,
young or old. can find steady work at
good wages the year round.
It is interesting to study the 6evelop-
ment of this industry In Gadsdpn coun-
ty. From 1887 to 186 the tobacco
was grown in the open field and fresh
hammock land was cleared for produc-
ing the fine wrapper lpe, but the im-
poirted Sumatra was steadily growing
in favor, and it became more and
more dflc.;t for the Florida grow.
ers to meet this competition. In 18W
the late F. A. Schroeder, of New York,
conceived the idea of covering the fields
with an artificial hade to produce a
finer wrapper, and a small plot of about
oa acre was covered with slats as an
experiment. This tobacco was of a flone
type. and the Owl Commercial Com-
ny, desiring to still further Improve
Stobaseo, overed twenty acres the
follow year with cheesecloth and
provided an irrigating plant to supply
th cessary moisture. Other grow-
ers epe aiM ted along the same lines,

leave the matter up to him. Then,
again, the official correspondent from
the State house, who draws a fine sal'.
ary from the Comptroller's depart-
ment, puts in good time reporting the
investigation to suit the King and his
own crowd's taste In her letters last
week she said: "When the testimony of
the newspaper men who have been ex-
aminaed is printed and given to the pub-
.liclt will place the men who have been
industriously writing this class of edi-
torials in a rather awkward position."
Now, we shall see what we shall see
when that mighty report comes forth,
and we promise the great and good
gentlemen who may think they have all
things Just as they desire them, to put

some newspapers which have dared to
criticism them in a. deep hole, that
unless they furnish some better excuse
for secret, cheap land sales than having
"precedents." and that the "law gIives
the right to sell for what they please,"
that the criticism will still be contin-
ued. It is now said, however, the In-
ternal Improvemset Board will sell no
more lands until publicity is given to
the fact that lands will be sold; and If
that's so maybe the I. !. Fund will
ete higher prices the lands should

If Gov. Broward agrees with Editor
L'Engle that Judge Stewart was a
party to the "great conspiracy," why
Is that functionary permitted to remain
on the bench when the Governor has
t the power to remove him? If the L'En-
gle charges are true, Judge Stewart is
certainly not a proper person to hold a
judgeship in Florida.--Live Oak Demo-
To the point, and it is quite "point-
ed," too. It reminds us of an old
darkey who once drove up in frot of the
court house in Tallahassee and stopped
the old gray mule he had hitched to his
cart. In a few minutes a yellow-jacket
stung the mule in a tender spot, and he
proceeded to use his hind legs in the
good old Maud mule fashion, and the
driver was knocked from his seat to
the body of the cart. A colored street
urchin then asked: "What's de matter,
mistah?" Whereupon the old darkey
replied: "I dun-no! I seed her back
her years, her feet flowed up, an' I
cotch it." And that's right pointed. "
So, Mr. Governor Broward, do you see
the point?
That splendid newspaper, the Pensa-
cola Daily Journal, is doing much good
work in its weekly write-up of the
West Florida Sections. Last Sunday it
was most creditably done of DeFuniak
and Walton county, and next Sunday's
issue will do up in the best order Chip-
ley and Washington county. To have a
live, up-to-date newspaper working
diligently for the up-building of any
community cannot be over estimated,
and the Journal is surely doing its full
share along that line. The True Demo-
crat congratulates Mr. Mays on the ex-
cellent make-up of his whole newspa-
per and wishes him the largest measure
of success in every feature he may add
to it. lie well deserves every good
that comes to him, and justly has a
right to be proud of the newspaper he
makes and nonds out broadcast over
Florida and into the world.
Prof. Tom F. McBeath, is making of
his School Exponent, a school journal
of the very highest order, and it is a
credit to him and the state of Florida
to send out such a journal. Every
school ofllcer, teacher and pupil should
get and re.tl every issue of it, and it
should be a regular visitor into every
home in the state. "The school Ex-
ponent in a periodical of such marked
ability that it is quoted in all parts of
the country and its contents are of a
character to be helpful to the teacher
who takes a pride in the work and is
ambitious to increase his or her efficien-
cy in the great cause."
Editor Ilowden, of the Dade City
Star, pays us the following compliment:
"Editor John G. Collins of the Talla-
haaeees Democrat is still improving his
weekly paper, and it has been for a
long time regarded as among the State's
very beet weeklie. We admire the
paper and its editor and always look
anxiously for it at the end of each week,

largely for the reason that you may re-
ly absolutely on the Democrat to give
the details of any matter that comes
up, and do so from an unbiased stand-
point whether it exactly suits the edi-
tor or not."

The True Democrat congratulates
Hon. Park Tra*mell, editor of the
Lakeland Sun, on the enlargement and
Improvement in thi excellent weakly
newspaper. May hbe receive an inerea-
ed patronage and more encouragement
in giving his people a live and up-t,

Of course he has, and it seems that is

6 mIngin fort r full share of
audIt sems that these little in-
Sagents that register up con
of water as, electric light
a, over this big country of
are now being general diues-
or cmed). From tbo Nm eo
s we take the following:
tuay of us have from time to'
r occasion to complain at the
eendereor bills resulting from
IC of water and lightmeters ?
: al -oeftr Ichaged thatr ot i
d wrongF with H- meter, be-
o eoendon sense and knowledp of
consumed, makes us know
m not used as much water or as,
Srll as the meters show we have.
r oaret in vain, the companies
thin meters are right, and we
e there pay the bill or have service

SBatit has been discovered that gas,
eieir light and water meters in very
Te e do not register correct-
Thdiscovery was made in New
and as a result Public Service
(. missioner Maltbie has s ested
tlt in future every meter may be in-
epapted by a regularly assigned repre-
sontative of the state before it is set
is Now York. If the meters are not
I op rly installed and worked in New
eYork are they elsewhere.
SWoeaccuse no one, nor do the New
SYork authorities, but they aim to see
that patrons pay for just what they re-
osive, no more nor no less, and this is
impossible if a defective meter is to be
depended upon for registering the
amount of service supposed to be fur-
slahed. It would be well for all the
cities where meters are used to thor.
roughly test each one before installed
seed e if it is in proper working order.
Let no meter be accepted from the
manufacturers less the meter is ab-
solutely correct Imd proved to be so by
roper test. There Is no patent on the
vp mow now in use, and meter rhatruns
S2 per cent fast or 2 per cent slow is ac-
epted as a correct meter by many
cities. It has been a rule of the com-
pany in New York in sending out all
meters to have those meters run a trifle
slow, or in other words, in favor of the
consumer. It may be impossible for
consumers to read and detect the tault
of meters, but there are plenty of ex-
ports to be had who can do it.

S Myers and Maxwell.
The Metropolis has always admired
Fred. T. Myers, of Tallahassee, because
be is a large-hearted brainy and cour-
teous gentleman, and today he sets an
example to other men prominent in the
Democratic party of Florida worthy of
Imitation, and which will make him new
friends and the old ones esteem him
more. A few days ago many of his
friends in Jacksonville and elsewhere in
Florida urged and petitioned President
oosevelt to appoint him to the vacant
Judgeship of the United States Court
for the Northern District of Florida.
Judge Maxwell, another eminent Dem-
oeratic lawyer, of Pensacola, was also
inedorsed or the position by Senators
Mallory and Taliaferro, and by other
prominent citizens of Florida. Here
was a contest between two gentlemen,
both well qualified and both Den ocrats.
Mr. Myers this week has requested his
friends to make no further effort in his
behalf, indicating a willingness for
Judge Maxwell to receive the honor if
th Is a possibility of any Democrat
receiving Such genou action is
most commendable, and again shows
Frad. Myers too patriotic and too mag-
1 m to stand in the way of any
t appointed, and his prac-
tal withdraw leave Judge Maxwell,
of Pensacola, the only endorsed Domo
eete aspirant, and narrows the que"-

Passing of the Bar Room.
The rapidity of evolution of public
sentiment is curious to watch. Hardly
any one now recalls the late Jerry
Simpson as radical, and ex-Senator
Peffer is quoted as declaring that
Roosevelt is a populist after his own
It is only a few years ago that to
talk of prohibition was to arouse South-
ern ire, over "gross interference with
private rights." The cocktail and
mint julip, and that queen of subtle be-
guilement, the Virginia toddy, not to
mention the more recent "Mamie Tay-
lor," and the soothing "Sea-gull"
protested in their poesy against the
overthrow of the traditions of the olden
days of romance.
And yet,'today, we find the prohibi-
tion sentiment strong, widespread,
strengthening, and growing wider an&d
wider. Georgia is practically certain
of prohibition. Alabama, by its pro-
posed non-shipment law, which has
paased both houses, and its early clos-
Ing in "wet" towns, is all but on a
prohibition basis. Louisiana is dotted
from end to end with five circles, with
school houses as the centers, in which
liquor cannot be sold, and well-informed
persons expect Santa Rosa county to
go dry next week.
It may be hard on some, it may bean
unnecessary step as regards those in
whom temperament and judgment unite
happily on the drink this side of "the
one too many." but the spread of the
prohibition sentiment, active and pas-
aive. means that the day of the bar
room sway in politics is passing, and
that despite the ridicule provoked by
Carrie actions and other wild extrem-
ists, the people at large are growing
more and more to look on the retail
qor traffic as one that can be easily
ds sd with. Whether prohibitionm
/ts or not, it lessens Stne extentof
drunkensese, pts it into a greater di.
repute in th.- r blic sight, and 1sssm
the opportual as for young men to be.
'e0e addicted to a curae which io -

c tiiry, and there can be no doubt of
its future."

Miami and Her People.
The Miami newspapers are very cred-
itable to that fine city. and no agency
is doing more to develop and build up
that city and section. The fair and
just manner in which a stranger was
treated who was before her courts not
long since showed the character of the
people and newspapers, and the follow-
ing, from the Live Oak Democrat,
shows more of it:
"The people of Miami have shown
themselves fully equal to a grave public
emergency, and deserve very high
praise for not doing what so many
other people, less intelligent and well
balanced, have done under similar cir-
cumstances and wrought widespread
injury to the community in conse-
quence. The other day a prominent
Miami bank suspended and was de-
clared insolvent. Prompt notice was
given that the other local banks were
not materially affected by the failure;
but doubtless, if the example of a few
timid and nervous souls had been fol-
lowed, a general run on the other
banks might have found them without
enough cash to meet the unexpected
demand of every depositor.
"This would have been a terrible
blow to Miami, not in the least degree
chargeable to the banks, but to a panic-
stricken herd of depositors who had lost
their good judgment and were insisting
upon an unreasonable demand. But the
pple of Miami were not that kind.
The rallied around the two banks
whose solvency was unquestioned, no
run was made, and, to show their en-
tuire confidence, they even increased
their deposits. In this way they saved
their banks and their city from a great
disaster, and that, too, without making
any sacrifice or incurring the slightest
los or risk, but simply by exercising
good common sense and refusing to get
excited in the presence of an emrner-
Even one man wh" keeps his head
and does the right thing at a critical
pro'd is a big asset in a community:
but when there is a town fill of them,

Watches That Keep Time

A watch that doeen't keep time is worse than no watch at
all. I sell watches of the reliable sort-all flrst-class time-
piece, and sell them at prices that give but a small margin
of profit.
I repair watches also, and my long experience in the busi-
ness has taught me to repair them skillfully and scientificeally.

Selling buggies is my business. I know it will be good or
otherwise, according as my vehicles are good or otherwise.
Therefore, I handle only those built by reputable manufacturers.
I have a wide enough variety to suit every taste-a range of pri-
ces to fit every purse.

It is my business to see,
that you get the best.
If you do the pleasure is
yours. . . .
