Last November it was announced
that the State board of health had made

When a rooster finds a big fat worm
he calls all the hens in the farm yard
to come and share it. A similar trait
of human nature is to be observed
when a man discovers something ex-
ceptionally good-he wants all his
friends and neighbors to share the
benefits of his discovery. This is the
touch of nature that makes the whole
world kin. This explains why people
who have been cured by Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy write letters to the
manufacturers for publication, that
others similarly ailing may also use It
and obtain relief. Behind every one
of these letters Is a warmi-hearted
wish of the writer to be of use to some-
one else.

him in the joint of the middle finger of
I the left hand. Little was thought of it
at the time. On Monday the dog bit a
r calf. From this time on he became
vicious, snapping at everything that
came his way. Thursday night he died.
i Friday he was thrown out in a grove.
Saturday they became concerned about
it and went out-and brought the dog in-
to the laboratory of the State board of
health for examination. The evamnina-
tion was delayed, but the following
Wednesday the Negri bodies were
found in the brain. This meant the
dog was mad. It was then ten days
since the young man was bitten. He
was advised to take the Pasteur treat-
ment without delay. He took the ad-
vice and was given the first injection
Thursday, eleven days after the bite.
Eighteen days after the calf was bit-
ten, it developed symptoms of hydro-
phobia. It grew progressively worse
or five days when it was killed and the
brain found to contain Negri bodies.
The evidence that the dog was rabid
may be summed up as follows:
First-He had all the clinical symp-
toms of hydrophobia, from which he
Second-His brain gave the micro-
scopical evidence of hydrophobia.
Third-The calf bitten by him, after
the required incubation period of eigh-
teen days developed the symptoms of
the disease.
Fourth-The brain of the calf like-
wise showed the Negri bodies.

Jacksonville. Fl., April 18, 1908.
To the Sons of Confederate Veterans of
the State of Florida:

It is the earnest desire of the Divis-
Ion Commander that Camps of the Uni.
ted Sons of Confederate Veterans should
be organized in each county, town and
city of this State, and it is important
that immediate action should be taker
in order that the formation of all new
camps shall be completed before the an.
nual reunion of the Confederation at
Birmingham, Alabama, from June
ninth to eleventh, inclusive, thus entit.
ling each campto representation in the
Convention. Through the generosity ol
the pressNI trust this appeal will reach
every sod 6f a Confederate Veteran in
The objects and purposes of ths or-
g anization are strictly "Historical and
enevolent." It strives :
1. To cultivate the ties of friendship
that should exist among those whose
ancestors have shared common dangers,
suffering and privations.
2. To see that the disabled are cared
for; that a helping hand is extended to
'the needy, and that needy Confederate
Veterans, widows and orphans are pro-
tected and assisted.
3. To see that proper histories, giv-
ing a true account, especially of the
war between the States and t causes
which led up to the war, are uhed and
taught in every school, college and uni-
versity in this State.
4. To instill into our deecndaitand
all descendants of Confederate Veterans
a proper veneration for the spirit and
the glory of our fathers, and Je bring
them into association with our Confed-
eration, that they may aid usian our
purposes and finally succeed 0is and
take up our work where we m4 leave
These headquarters will take pleasure
in forwarding blanks on reque, with
full information as to the form o and
conducting of camps, and will gladly
furnish advice and counsel when desired
and will use every effort to the
federation. W- wl

It is suggested that the' ois of Con-'
federate Veterans talk the matter over
in each community, town or city and
meet together at once for the purpose
of forming a camp of the Confedera-
tion; thus showing an appreciation of
their proud heritage as sons of illus-
trous sires whose heroic courage, patri-
otic devotion to duty and sublime unsel-
fishness is the wonder and the glory of
our Southland.

Four years ago it was claimed that

This is being done again. Th Re-.

does not cease we shall call names.-

The Hicesit.o Read.
To the Public:
Criticisms have been made of the ac-
tion of the county commissioners in the
Matter of ordering and constructing a
w piece ofe road at the
point where the Florida Central Rail-
rod now built, required some
one twenty-five yards of
the MnrMad for its rodve-bed.
And a writ True Democrat of
April 17 a saphiFt about the
cost of the new le e at led Mdabout
several other things, ldfug the in-
creased rate of taxation.
The f whichh should be the only
basis of Ulderation in dealing with
the acts 5 public officials) are as fol-
lows :
The railroad company could have had
the land which they needed for road-
bed condemned. To resist such pro-
ceedings would have cost the county
considerable in legal expenses. The
commissioners took the best means of
avoiding such conflict by prevailing
upon the railroad company to bear the
expense of filling in from the banks of
the ravine to the bridge, which filling
would have cost the county not less
than three hundred dollars. The entire
cost to the county of making the new
road (about three-quarters of a mile)
and building the bridge was two hun-
dred dollars ($200). If the railroad
company had procured the legal con-
demnation of the part of road needed
the county would not have received
therefore as much as the commissioners
have obtained through the arrangement
made with the company for the filling
in above mentioned.
The petition for the laying out of this
new road was signed by ninety-five per
cent. of the citizens resident in the vi-
cinity, and criticisms therefore comes
with bad grace from any one who theA
So far as increase of taxation is con-
cerned, the commissioners are respon-
sible for only one mill of the increase in
county taxation, and that was levied
for the special purpose of repairing the
county roads, which every citizen knows
were in bad condition; and this fund,
of course, is being used solely for that
purpose. The school tax is the largest
item of county taxes (7 mills), and that
is levied at the instance of the school
board by the county commissioners, and
expended by that board exclusively.
The increase in the State tax rate (one
and-one-half mills), the commissioners
are of course, not responsible for.
The foregoing statement is made for
t information of all who are not fa-
1heillar with the facts. %'

DELAND, FLA., April 17, 1908.
Hon. John G. Collins, Tallahassee, Fla.:
My Dear Old Friend-I enclose check
for subscription as per bill. You and I
may sometimes disagree on persons and
measures, but we have always been
friends and we will remain so, whether
or not you support me and my friends
for anything. I am the original Bryan
man, and Bryan will tell you so and if
elected a delegate I am for him for
President. He is the only man that
can hold the reform vote together.
Hearst and Watson can take the re-
form vote from any man but Bryan, and
that is why they do not like him. Hope
you keep well and prosperous.
Yours truly,
And now he and John Stockton have
jumped on the State Prohibition Water
Wagon with both feet. It shows their
demagogism, but we do not believe
either of them fool the voters of Flori-
da in it. We do not believe most vot-
ers favor mixing church and temper-
ance into politics and political schemes.
Object to Strong Medicines.

Many people object to taking the
strong medicines usually prescribed by
physicians for rheumatism. There is
no need of internal treatment in any
case of muscular or or chronic rheuma-
tism, and more than nine out of every
ten cases of the disease are of one or
the other of these varieties. When
there Is no fever and little (if any)-
swelling, you may know that it is only
necessary to apply Chamberlain's Lini-
ment freely to get quick relief. Try It.

Candidates for Legislatre. His Plat-
From the platform of Hon. S. J.
Hilburn, candidate for the Legislature
from Putnam county, we take the fol-
lowing :
The administration of our State g6v-
ernment has become too expensive.
Nearly every Legislature enacts laws
raising the salaries of officers, making
many new offices, enlarging the clerical
forces in the different departments and
in the several state offices that are not
necessary, appropriating money to many
objects and enterprises that could easily
be ispensed with, thereby making the
Iboen of taxation too heavy upon our
people. I shall oppose all expenditures
of the people's money except such as
may be absolutely necessary in an hon-
est and, economical administration of
our affairs.
Under the present law the Trustees of
the Intprnal Improvement Fund are au-
thoriaed to sell the State lands to any
person, at any time and at any price
they may see fit; secretly, behind closed
doors, as they see fit. The andsare be-
ing rapidly disposed of at small prices
and sometimes almost given away. Oc-
casionally the people learn of a disposi-
tion of their lands, but usually they
know nothing about it, as the sales are
private, only the trustees and the pur-
chaser knowing of the transaction.
Millions of acres of the people's lands
have been thus disposed of, which
means that millions of dollars have been
Onlywast year the trustees sold to
Mr. .fNeff all of the I. I. F. lands in
Putnam and Clay counties, and at a pri-
vate sale, for the paltry sum of one dol-
lar per.aere. Mr. Neff immediately sold
to Colonel J. B. D. Woodburn the Put-
nam county lands, embracing about
3,000 acres, for three dollars per acre.
You seq.the State lost about $6,000.00
on this remnant of Putnam county
lands. What was lost on the Clay coun-
ty lands I do not know. This is a very
trifling 4aair, however, when compare
with thae:ale of other State lands
throughout the State. You have heard
a great deal said about these lands,
polticisas have told you they were be-
ing stoles pd that they should be saved.
Yet this ~d of disposition is stlU in

*'1 e of those lands that has
Aft of ean be savadlj-
thepeo Wall "rakeoffs" and temp-
tations to athe State in their dis-
position removed.
The edy is simple, it is this:
Have the legislature enact a law re-
quiring trustees of the I. I. Fund
when tmonclude to sell any lands to
adve me in the county wherein
the la- are located, and also in a few
of t ing state papers, for thirty
days, ving everyone an opportunity
to i d in a written bid therefore, and
to seil the same to the highest bidder.
Let uch act prevent a sale of such
lands in any other manner. Such a law
will make it impossible for any one,
whether railroad, corporation, or any
peaon, to steal the public lands or to
et' them at a sacrifice. Had such a
aw been passed even ten years ago, it
woWu have saved perhaps a million dol-
la to the people of the state. During
the l|t session of the legislature I pre-
pars bill embracing the above prin-
ciple and Hon. C. A. Dupont, represen-
tative from St. Johns county, promised
to introduce it. At the close of the see-
siee he said that the reason he had not
done so was that Senator Trammell ask-
ed him not to do so, as he had intro-
duce one in the senate, but he said Mr.
Tranmel failed to call his bill up until
it waktoo late, hence the law was not
passed If elected, I shall introduce
such a kill and work for its passage.

aWWhisky advertisements ar not accepted
and laserted in this newspaper at any price or
under any conditions or circumstances. Not a
ngle onwe has ever appeared in it.

Our absence from the city from the
first of the week until Friday at the
hour of going to press, is the only ex-
cuse we have to offer for the scarcity
of editorial matter in this issue.
After a pleasant personal interview
with the Hon. D. H Mays, just as our
last forms are being prepared for the
press, we are now satisfied conclu-
sively that we went some too far in our
criticism of his candidacy and of him
personality. This newspaper has no de.
sire to cast untrue and damaging reflec-
tions against anyone, and now that we
are satisfied an injustice was done him,
in the main, we cheerfully make this
statement, and in doing so withdraw
and withhold articles that had been
prepared for this week's issue, with the
earnest hope that the differences be-
tween us are forever settled and that
be and I shall remain the personal
friends we have always been.
We are satisfied in our own minds
that Governor Broward will not neglect
his office as governor, as some of our
exchanges pretend to believe, but will
do his whole duty as chief executive of
the State of Florida as he sees it even
if it is a choice between duty and the
U. S. Senate.-Arcadia Champion.

thing just as sure as life. He does not
stay here attending to business as
much as a fourth of the time.
Silver Tea fer the Beelit of the
Catholic Church.

The charming residence of Mr. and i
Mrs. Charles A. Cay was the scene
Thursday afternoon of a delightful
gathering of ladies and gentlemen who
were interested in helping the ladies of
the Catholic congregation raise money I
for their church. The whole spacious
lower floor was thrown open and every
available space adorned with vines of
smilax, graceful ferns and exquisite
flowers. Easter lillies made the airt
heavy with their fragrance, and sweet-
pea blossoms, roses and narturtiums t
delighted the eye with their delicate
A freewill offering of silver was
dropped into one or the other of the lit- i
tle silver bonbon dishes presented by
two lovely little maidens, Frances Papy 1
and Georgia Demilley. The sum thus
received was augmented by the pro-
ceeds from the sale of candy and fancy
articles. Every variety of the delic-
ious home-made candies for which Tal-
lahassee is so famous, were to be had,
but the supply scarcely equalled the de-
mand, so popular is this dainty among
young and old. In another room a
large table was spread with dainty no-
tions made of crepe paper. There were
lovely lamp shades made in the form of
the glowing poinsettia, globes for elec-
tric bulbs in the shape of tulips and
chrysanthemums; bonbon boxes; deco-
rative patties and fancy baskets of
-every color and size. All these were
the exquisite work of some of the
church ladies.

City is Quiet Agala sad BIaIess Re.

The restlessness and excitement
which has possessed the majority of all
classes of people in Pensacola since the
strike of the conductors and motormen
of the Pensacola Electric Company,
more than two weeks ago, has abated
to a marked degree. Absolute quiet,
in so far as the strikers and their sym-
pathizers are concerned, prevails
throughout the city.
The order issued by United States
Judge Sheppard against the street ecar
strikers and their sympathizers isso far
reaching that it has so far resulted in
stopping all disorder. In fact, the city
is very quiet, and the restraiinng order
is being generally discussed. Oiers

and as manyas an be reached who
have show et tlat the unfortunate
affair. 2b order is complete in every
In the eas of the sudden illness of
Sergeant H. A. Parrish and Privates
Francis Smith and R. A. Burke, of
Jacksonville, alleged to be due to eating
poisoned candy, the general belief is
that the soldiers were poisoned by eat-
ing something prior to having been
given the candy. Physicians have said
that there was evidence of ptomanie
poisoning, and it is not believed here
that there was any endeavor to do in-
jury to the soldiers. The investigation
was made in justice to the sheriff and
deputies, one of the latter having furn-
ished the candy.
Conductor Hoffman, who was shot
Tuesday afternoon on the Park Line, is
still in a very serious condition at St.
Anthony's Hospital.
The city of Pensacola and the Elec-
tric Company have each offered a re-
ward of $250 for the capture of the men
implicated in the crime.
A Pleasant Resalea.

Forty-seven years ago, in the far-off
city of Key West, three little girls
whose brief years had been spent in
that intimate companionship to which
only little girls can attain, bade each
other a tearful good-bye. Since that
time until within the past few days the
three of them together have never met.
One remained in Key West, and in her
young womanhood was married to Hon.
L. W. Bethel, who afterwards became
lieutenant-governor of Florida. Anoth-
er went to the North, where she mar-
ried General William Luddington, now
retired, of the United States Army,
while the third, the daughter of the
late Judge William Douglas, of revered
memory, came to Tallahassee and con-
tinued her residence here as the wife
of Mr. George Lewis, president of the
First National Bank.
Last week these three friends met
again, and dined together, with several
of their decendents and relatives, at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis. It
was a delightful reunion-a pleasant
reminiscence upon which to linger in
General and Mrs. Luddington have
been guests of Tallahassee for several
months. They seem to be delighted
with the old-world charm of Florida's
capital But their visit is now drawing
near its close greatly to the regret of
the many new and old friends whom
they will leave behind. Mrs. Ludding-
ton, especially, has endeared herself in
many ways, and she will be remember-
ed by her many kind and charitable
deeds. The King's daughters espec-
ially, are indebted to her for the deep
and practical interest she has taken in
their work.

To the Voters et Leea.
In justice to myself I feel that I
should state the facts regarding my
failure to qualify as a candidate for the
position of County Judge before April
10th. as required by the rules of the
Democratic Executive Committee. The
following letter shows that I went twice
to the committee for the purpose of
qualifying, and that I failed to do so
because the committee was unable to
inform me as to the amount of the as-
sessment. In view of these facts the
committee met in special session on
April 18th, and by a vote of 12 to 1 al-
lowed me to qualify. My name will
appear on the ballot at the Democratic
primary on May 19th.
Respectfully ,

Mr. Howard Gamble, Tallahassee, Fla.:
Dear Sir-In compliance with your
request to give you a written statement
of the facts within my knowledge with
reference to your failure to qualify as a
candidate for County Judge of Leon
county, Florida, I beg to say that all of
such facts within my knowledge are as
Immediately after the adjournment
of the meeting of the County Execu-
tive Committee on the 21st ult., you
asked me what the fee of a andidate
for County Judge in the primary would
be. I stated in reply that I did not
know, but that I would ascertain same
from County Judge, as the compenms-
tion of the oie was constituted of fees
and not a stated salary.
I promptly asked for this information
from the Couty Judge, andhe stated
that he would let know. l qag
the County Jud or such iff67 ;
and he rephd tbe was them sas-
lating the same.
About two weeks ago, and after IJad
approached the County Judge a- so

I= LSaile Blake was the hostess on
Tuesday at one of the most beautiful
afternoon receptions that Tallahassee
has been favored with this season. Her
beautiful home on North Calhoun Street
was thronged with exquisitely dressed
women, young and over-young who
had gathered there in honor o Mrs.
W. D. Bloxham and Mrs. W. J. Glenn.
These ladles, with Miss Blake, formed
the receiving party, and stood in the
front parlor against a massed back-
ground of delicate ferns and yellow
scholzias. The guests first entered a
hall glowing with amaryllis lillies and
red roses where they were welcomed
by Mrs. E. K. Hollingerand Mrs. H. E.
Felkel, and shown the wey to te re
ception room. From there they were
directed by Mrs. Howard Gamble and
Mrs. A. L Messer to the refreshment
parlor where Mrs. Clifton Gwynn and
iss Blanche Blake, assisted by a bevy
of charming young ladies, served delic-
ious ice cream and various kinds of
cake. In this room asparagus terns and
sweet peas ran riot. Table, sideboard
and mantel, all, were a mass of bril-
liant, fragrat bloom. Next this room,
in a smaller parlor, dainty and sweet
with white oleander blossoms gleaming
through sprays of delicate heavenly
bamboo, the punch bowl was presided
over by Mrs. Fred C. Moor and Miss
Kate Blake.
At intervals delightful music was furn-
ished by one or another of the guests
who had been asked to lend their ser-
Miss Mary Paige Randolph, with her
matchless violin, played to her mother's
accompaniment on the piano. Mrs.
Randolph was succeeded at this instru-
ment by Misseu Jessie Edmondson,
Elizabeth Tatum and Connie McCon-
So delightful had the afternoon been
spent that the guests were loth to leave,
and it was nearly dark before they fi-
nally dispersed.
Mrs. BIloxham, although an entire
stranger here urtil last fall when she
came among our people as the wife of
Tallahassee s foremost citizen, ex-Gov-
ernor W. D. Bloxham has steadily won
an enviable place in the hearts of her
husband's friends. Mrs. Glenn is not a
stranger, though she has not visited
here for several years. She is a native
of Leon, and, in her girlhood, was well
known in this city as Miss Mary Blake,
the niece of the former Mrs. Bloxham.
Mrs. Glenn is also a cousin of Miss
Blake. She has been makmg an ex-
tended v.sit here, dividing her time
pleasantly between her uncle, ex-Gov-
nor Bloxham, and her cousin, Miss
Blake. Much to the regret of her many
old friends, Mrs, Glenn's visit is draw-
ing to its close. She expects to leave
next week for her home in Lynchburg,

J. ., o;oas county, Ga. and a
negro ward out in a boat, on Lake For-
shala, hooting alligators a few days
ago, met with an unexpected and
rather funny experience. He had just
shot and kiled (as he thought) a big
'gator, and deciding he would cut off a
pee of the 'gators tail to cook and
at as a substitute for fish, he had the
negro grab the 'gator by the tail and
begin to saw it in two. Well. a 'gatoris
something like a cat, and has, or seems
to have, more than one life, and when
the knife reached a place in his flesh
more tender than ever, he fetched a
mighty flounce and this caused both men
to throw theirweigit on one side of the
boost, and it turned over and spilled
them in the water. The gator "turned
the boat" if not "the tables" on them
m the joke. The water was shallow,
and except getting wet and cold they
eame out all right. As the "other

There was a coach that used to run
between Nola Cheeky and Paint Rock,
a matter of nome forty miles. For
lunch the coach stopped at a halfway
house in Tin Can, and here a good 50
cent meal was put out-cake and pie,
coffee and tea and all the cold meats
you could mention.
But the landlord of the halfway house
had a mean little secret dicker with the
driver, whereby as soon as the travel-
lers had paid for their lunch and got
fairly settled to it a call would come for
an immplete start. So off they'd all
go, grumling. They'd have paid for 50
cents' worth of food and only eaten,
you see, about 5 cents' worth.
But along came one daya traveler

Base Ball Season Opene in TaUlla*
The Tallahassee Base Ball Associa-
tion was formed some weeks ago, with
Bradford Byrd as Manager. L. 0.
Holmes is Secretary and Treasurer, and
Peres McDougall, Captain. The team
played their opening game in Tallahas-
see last Friday afternoon with Craw-
fordville. There was a large attend-
ance and a good game.
The Tallahassee boys outclassed the
visitors, but it took good, swift playing
to do so. Crawfordville brought a strong
line-up, having players from St. Marks,
Arran and Ashmore to meet them here
and join in the game.
Lofton pitched an excellent game for
the locals, and only allowed one hit.
Tailahassee found one of the best play-
ers yet in McCloud, 2d baseman. He
was right there ever time with the
goods. His "three base drive" over
eft field was one ot the sensational
features of the game.
Sheats, the veteran pitcher, played
third, and his work in this position was
pleasing to all. "Old Chief Hamlin"
was there with his usual hitting, secur-
ing a 2d base and 3-base hit. For Craw-
fordville, Harrell, 2d base, carried off
the honors.
Tallahassee is hitting better this
yearithan last, and if the boys will
keep up spirt and play ball as they did
in this game, it will be no "scinch" for
another team to carry off the "rag."
Arrangements are now being made for
a game with the "Florida Champions,"

Top Burner of My Gas
Yellow and Blacken

the Cooking Utensils ?"
The burners are either clogged or out of ad-
justment. Try cleaning the small holes in the
burners with a piece of wire, removing the
dust or grease which may obstructing them.
If this does not remedy the trouble, notify the
gas company, as the burner may need adjust-
This condition should not be allowed to con-
tinue, as a yellow flame not only blackens the
cooking utensals, but decreases the heating
value of the gas. Best results are obtained
from a feathery blue flame.

How Can I Ke- My Gas Range
" How Can I Keep My Gas Range

in Good

Condition and Free From Rust ? "

Once a day the burners, broiler pan, oven
racks and removalfdrip pan under the top
burners should be and the burners, as
well as the rest of t range, wiped with a
Freased cloth, or smalfs of suet wrapped
in cheese cloth. All or this work should be
done while the range is warm from use, so
that it will dry quickly and readily absorb the
the grease.
If the small holes in the burners become
clogged they should be cleaned out with a
piece of wire. Never apply blacking to the
burner .
l -

Purchase a Vulcan Gas Range,

And you will not have cause to regret it.

Food is easier digesed when cooked on a Gas

Range. No fire to kindle, no ashes to carry

out. You do t have to wait on the fire.

"What Causes the
Range to Burn

"Can the Gas Water Heater be used

when there is a fire in the Coal Range?"

Yes. This appliance heats the water in the
circulating boiler independently of either gas
rangee or coal range, and may be used, if nec-
essary, to supplement the coal range.

"In Lighting the Top Burners of My Gas
Range, the Flame Sometimes Burns
Back in the Pipe, with a Slight Report

and a Disagreeble Odor.
This be Prevented ? "

How Can

"In Lighting the Oven of My Gas Range,
Should the Gas Be Turned On to the
Oven Burners Before Lighting the Pilot
Light ?"
No, the pilot light should be turned on and
lighted before gas is turned on to oven burners.
When you have satisfied yourself that the
oven burners are lighted, turn of the pilot light.
The oven door should always be kept open
while lighting oven burners, in order to pre-
vent the accumulation of tas in ovens before
match is applied.

W E have on exhibition at owr office
a complete line of Gas Ranges and
Water Heaters, which we would be very
glad to show you in operation, or, if you

prefer, we will have one of our represen-

tatives call and explain the many advan-

tages of gas for fuel purposes.
1 A Gas Range is no longer limited to

Summer months.
S Its convenience, economy and efficiency
have demonstrated its value for all-year
A Gas Water Heater is as clean, econ-

omical and labor saving as a gas range.

Afte" the burner is lighted a short time,
hot water may be drawn from any faucet

in the house in the usual manner. And

they are connected free.



When you turn on the gas, allow an instant
for it to fill the burner before applying the
match. This will prevent the "lighting back"
which you describe, and which is caused by
the gas igniting in the air mixer before it
reaches the burner.
If the difficulty continues when these direc-
tions are followed, notify the gas company, as
the burners may need adjusting. No charge
for the inspectors visit.

"How can I Broil Steaks or Chops in
the oven of a Gas Range?"
Use the Broiling Oven.
Trim most of the fat or suet from the chops
or steak, place on rack in lower oven. Turn
the meat occasionally, but do not put fork in
the lean part.
Never put the meat in a cold pan. The
juices will be drawn out as the pan heats and
the meat will be tough and poorly flavored.
Season it after it is taken from the pan.
This method is called Oven Broiling.
Be sure the oven is properly heated before
placing meat in it to cook, This insures the
fine juicy flavor so desirable.

"Why is it so important to heat a Gas
Range Oven before putting in anything
to cook?"

It is not more important to heat the Gas
Range oven before using than it is to heat the
coal oven. The oven should be hot so that
cooking will begin at once. Ten minutes s a
good average allowance for a gas range. 'his
method involves no waste of gas, because if the
article be put in a cold oven the e ouin will
take so much longer, and the results will not
be as good. For example-if steak is placed
in the oven before it is properly heated, It
will become tough, poorly flavored, and will
not brown.

"Is it more expensive to keep a Gas
Range in repair than a Coal Range?"
No,. The wearing parts of a gas range are
the oven linings, which, if kept clean and
frequently wiped with a greased cloth, it will
last for years. Should the linings become worn
out, they can be replaced at small expense.

The Quest of Truth.
It is a good deal easier to poke fun
at history than to write history merit
l g credence. Mr. Iiodley when writ
a g his France" experienced the force
of this in a curious way. lie shut
S himself up In Frauce for years to get
the atmosphere and the knowledge
necessary for his work. One of his
trials arose over some question of elect-
oral Jurisprudence. It was not of in-
ternational importance, but still Inter-
e ting to students of comparative pro-
oedure. Therefore he wrote to a dep-
uty who is a parliamentary expert to
d oar ap the obscurity In which the
tert books involve the point and neor.
ported his reply In the text of the
book Later, being Invited by an ex-
perienced mayor to be prentm at a
poll over which he presided Mr. Bod-
ley put the question to him and re-
eelved a quite different reply. Finally
the author referred the point to a
senator of Indslomtable authority, who
showed that the deputy and the mayor
were both wrong.-St James' Gazette.

An emperor of Germany besieged at
city which belonged to one of his rebel-

lasted for a long time the emperor do-
termined to take it by storm and to dn*

He did not, however, wish to iujare
thedefenhseless women; terefoe, bhe
sent a proclamation into the town, say-
ing that all the women might leave
the place unhurt and carry with them
whatever they held most precious. The
nobleman's wife Instantly decided to
take her husband, and the other wo.
men followed her example. They soon
Issued from the city gate in a long pro-

much struck with the noble conduct of

Comptroller to enforce the laws that

Incumbent upon him to make suggest-

the Governor, to the legislature upon
all matters that affect the finances

The duty of this officer, and the re-

at once apparent, when it is stated that
the whole machinery of the government
of this State depends upon the wie and
judicious administration of the Comp-
troller's office. Such officer should not
loe sight of the fact that, in smgeat-
ing the process of raising and providing
the necessary funds for the legitimate
expenses of the government, it is pee-
sable thereby to not only work an undos
hardship upon the tax-payers and citi-
aens of the State, but to stop the de-
velopment of its wonderful natural re-
It is impossible to have a prosperous
country without a prosperous people,

As a member of the Pardoning Board,
I would be opposed to the indiscrimiaste
pardoning of criminals.
I believe that all property should bear
its just and equal proportion of the ex-
lposss of the government. I am old-
hahioned enough to bold that the IOP-
erty holdings of the wealthier clesem,
the individual as well as the corpoi _n.
should be taxed in the same proportion
to its value as that of the humblest eit-
ilm. If I should be elected Comptrol
ler, I pledge my best efforts to bring
about this result-that is, that the in-
divadual citizen with small holdings shall
bear'o greater proportion of the bur-
den o taxation than his more fortunate
brother, who may be the poesesor of
many thousands.
Prompt settlements should be made
between State and county on tax eer-
tincates redeemed. I will favor legisla-
tion that will provide for the clerk of
the circuit court remitting to the Comp-
troller the State's proportion of Jheee
moneys and turning over to the county
that which belongs to the so-t.
In short, I believe isl eonomial
administration of the J i of govern-
ment. There is too I iaehnation to
levy burdens on the Ip-lp of the
State. Taxes should espended for

A Little Printer's Ink

Makes Millions

Think-Think-Think I

* More truth than poet-
ry. A little Printer's Ink
prints a little advertise
ment in a little "maga-
sine" that circulates at a
little price and goes into
a million little homes,
chiefly in the little cities
and towns and country
The millions of people
in these homes are
caused by the Pritmr's
Ink to think that they
can get big bargains for
their money by sending
it away by mail, order-
ing the things advertised
by the little pinch of
Printer's Ink.

Sometimes when they receive the stuff they order by
mail they have another Think coming. They think, "What
fools we mortals be," and apply the Think to themselves.
And sometimes some of them think something like this:

"Wondr why Mister Man, our ioal dealer
many tdngo we ned, dorM t advrtse tos
UMl In Owur loaJpap7 ?MayM It he f we
woud't be teted to mend to he big ty for
S thee i ame things. If we were sure we eood
buy the at hom for about the same price and
have a ehanoe to ee the goods before taking,
Stnk we'd prefer to buy them at home."

jI--e -vg its executive

It is reported that the Internal Im-
provement Board is considering a prop-
osition for the purchaseof many thous-
and acres of land in the Everglades by
a firm, syndicate or association that
proposes to make a great sugar plan-
tation in South Florida; that 40 cents
an acre constitutes the consideration
and that 75 per cent of this .etrava-
gant price is to be expended in rain-
ing the tract-figuring on this basis
the State will get 10 cents per
A well known and responsible etisen
of Florida not unknown to fame is
quoted as authority for the statement
that the governor lately spoke of this
offer and dilated upon its advantages
before an audience in a Southern
But, without discrediting the truth
of the report, we have many reasons
for believing the offer cannot be ac-
cepted and would not be considered by
the Board.
First-Governor Broward desired to
drain the Everglades to prevent the
coRrixations from getting the lands
which were to be opened for the ben-
eit of small investors needing sland on
which to maintain fami To sell
such lands in bodies of "manythoumand
acres" would deprive the poor of any
chance to acquire them except as ten-
ants of a orCowra -arha of the
Sugar Trust se cone is to planted.
Second-The gov.A has insisted
that these lands when reclaimed would
be worth woe hundred dollars per acre
and he certainly would not sell them
for ten cents and the promise to im-
prove the property of the purher.
Third-Tme vernor maid he would
hold these lans until their disposition
was enforced by the courts; no court
has ordered a sale as yet. It istrue a
cowpriadse has been accepted by which
cash was taken from the treasury, but
we have several explanation that
policy-perhaps a decision showingthe
governor's law faulty was not desired.

in question-There must be a mistake
somewhere. Meantime, we an only
wait and see-wonders never cease in
this best of all possible worlds. The
Diston contract valued those lands at
twenty-five cents when the State was
not required to spend money for drain-
ae; sice then other lands are higher
and those particular l-and should be
made m valuable by the State's pol-
icy to reclaim. Have we eSot a WO f

TALLAHAsBB FL.A., November 14, 1907.

To the Democratic Voters of Florida:

I am a candidate for Railroad Commissioner
to succeed Hon. John L. Morgan, who will not
be a candidate, in the Democratic primary
of 1908. I have always been in favor of the
regulation of railroads, and my experience as
Secretary of the Railroad Commission has con-
vinced me of the need of such a commission
to secure for the public reasonable rates and
good service and to prevent all unjust discrim-
inations. If I am nominated and elected, I shall
devote all my energies to Increasing the efficiency
of the Commission.
In submitting my candidacy to the Democratic
voters of Florida and soliciting their support, I
announce the following platform of principles con-
corning the more Important duties of a Railroad
Commissioner, as I conceive them to be, which I
favor and will endeavor to carry out should I be
nominated and elected.
1st. The railroads of our State should not be
allowed to charge higher rates than will produce
sufficient revenue to enable them to furnish the
public first-class service-both freight and pas-
aenger-to pay their employees good wages, and to
enable them to earn a fair Interest on an honest
valuation. I am utterly opposed to their earning
anything on watered stocks and bonds.
2nd. I favor a thorough examination of the
books and accounts of the railroads by the Com-
mlssion through competmit aoeountaats to see if
they are earning latereat ea a Slctltous.capitalla-
tiq and to a If teS are making Imaproper
S to operatW egaje5, os that frlt ad
rates mr be tad that wil bejut s ad
r e assa to the i sh e i well as to them lad.

3rd. I favor, and, If elected, will urge a thor-
ough investigation of the earnings and expendi-
tures of the Southern Express Company in this
State with a view of ascertaining whether or not
the rates operated between points in Florida are
just and reasonable.

4th. I favor the Commission's working in con-
junction with the Interstate Commerce Commis-
sion for the relief of the shippers of Florida in
matters that the State Commission cannot deal
with alone.

5th. I favor a strict enforcement of the Rail-
road Commission's rule requiring State overcharge
claims to be paid within thirty days from date of
filing. Under an act of the last Legislature, in-
dividuals are allowed fifty per cent interest per
annum and attorney's fees when loss and damage
claims are not paid within sixty days and it sl
necessary to institute uit.

6th. I favor recommending to the Legislature
the enactment of a law empowering the Commis-
sion to require separate accommodations for whites
and negroes in all trains carrying passengers.

7th. I will do all in my power as a Commissioner
to require the railroads of our State to furnish
the public good service-both freight and pas-
senger. Especially do I favor requiring the roads:

1st. To keep their tracks in a safe condition.

2nd. To furnish cars and to move freights

3rd. To kee their passenger cars and pas-
senger depots clean and lighted and heated.
when necessary to the comfort of the traveling

4th. And to keep their bulletin boards posted
at telegraph stations so as to show the probable
arrival time of delayed passenger trains.

For more than six years, I have been Secretary
of the Commission, and naturally, in that time, I
have become familiar with the workings of the
office, the railroad rates in the State, the rules and
regulations of the Owenmls-ion, and the Railroad
Commission law. Hundreds of intricate points
Involving interpretaftis of rules and law have
been considered and d ed while I have been
Secretary and with w i familiar. The infor.
mation thus gained, It necessarily require
a new man some time ti4equire.

Having been raised ta the southern section of our
State, where I worbed In the production of citrus
fruits and vegetables, I feel that I am in a position
to know something of the eds there; while for
the past twelve years I have realded in the northern
part of Florida, and I am familiar with the con-
ditions in that section.
I earnestly solicit ye support and assist-
ance In my casalgsnV my utmost endeav-
ors, if nominated and to carry out the
prinolples I have annoaseed
