county's tobacco yield far sur-
the expectations of many of its
S giwers. The grade of the tobacco is
the Mhghest. The buyers that have seen
our tobacco have seen all in the State
and say that Florida has none better.
9 Our growers have been offered the
highest prices that the present market
has to offer. The prices are down now
' because of the great financial panic and
also because of the poor grade of the
leaf that was grown everywhere last
yar. Last year was not a good season
for growing it as this year has been.
This season has been ideal, and our
growers have grown the best.
The present prices are not all flatter-
ing. In fact, our growers say they will
not accept present prices for their to-
bacco. For this reason a large number
of our growers held a meeting in the
City Hall Monday night for the purpose
of organizing and taking their tobacco
off the market. Our growers, most of
them, don't have to sell their tobacco
now. They are not financially depressed
and can afford to wait until things look
better. Mr. Wahnish, one of the most
experienced packers in the state, and
owner of an immense packing house
here, made the growers an excellent
proposition to pack their tobacco for
them. He agreed to ferment, assort,
select, size and properly pack their to-
bacco at fifteen cents a pound.
A large per cent of our growers
agreed to unite in this manner and have
their tobacco packed. Others are going
to have their tobacco packed indepen-
deut. Therefore most of Leon's tobac-
co crop has been taken off the market.
This means that regardless of the pres-
ent low prices of tobacco, our tobacco
will by being packed ar.d in the course
of a little delay bring its usual high
prices. The growers will sell direct to
the big consumers and will not have to
bother with the middle man-the packer.
another very encouraging feature for
Snew organization was that the
of the meeting reached Monticello
two of her largest growers, repre-
Mating as many more, were present
r- g to become members of the or-
g aniztion. Of course they will be re-
eived as Leon and Jefferson always
wet hand in hand when it comes to
S mg each other a good turn. We can be
ofaid to Jefferson by letting tLem come
into the compact and it will add that
much more to the already big tobacco
center that Tallahassee is.
This means much to Leon county. It
means that low prices of tobacco is not
going to throw Leon county into hard
times as it will other counties that are
growing it. It means that we will have
several more large packing houses be-
fore the stalks are stripped another year.
We have several large growers, 'some
of them are individuals and some of
them are companies, who are going to
build packing houses of their own.

Startling revelations brought out by
the Georgia Legislature in investigating
alleged abuses in connection with the
convict lease system of that State have
naturally brought into general discus-
sion the matter of abolishing the sys-
tem in Florida, which many have long
Conditions in Florida, however, ap-
pear to be entirely different from those
existing in Georgia, particularly as the
system does not offer the chances for
graft and political trickery as that of
Georgia, prominent officials of which
have been brought into decidedly bad
repute by disclosures made. It is also
generally known that the authorities of
Florida enforce better treatment of
convicts than those of Georgia.
Owing to revival of discussion of abol-
ishing the lease system of Florida, a
Metropolis representative this morning
called on S A. Rawls, head of S. A.
Rawls & Co., lessees of the State con-
victs, who was asked for an expression
on the subject.
"Of course the situation in Georgia
has to a great extent revived the talk
of abolishing the system in Florida,"
said Mr. Rawls, "and I do not see how
this could be otherwise, for conditions
in our neighboring State appear to have
reached the limit in every way. The
principal cause of complaint in Georgia
is the graft feature, about which I have
had knowledge for several years, and I
have known for a long time that start-
ling revelations would eventually be
made. As the lessees pay all salaries,
however, making the payment of a sal-
ary by both State and lessees impossi-
ble, chance for graft in Florida is cut
down to a decidedly low notch.
"The people of Florida may rest as-
sured that'no such conditions prevail in
Florida," continued Mr. Rawls, "and I
cordially invite any newspaper reporter,
State official or private citizen to inves-
tigate every feature of the work of S.
A. Rawls & Co., and I will personally
aid in such investigation and have all
my employes to do likewise. You will
find conditions far different in Florida
from those in Georgia."
That few occasions have arisen for
criticising the manner in which S. A.
Rawls & Co. conduct their business or
treat their convicts is a fact well known
throughout the State. Jacksonville
Tallahassee's merry fox-hunters had
a wild chase with their fleet-footed
steeds under the light of the silvery
moon last Friday night. The large pack
of hounds that our hunters are noted
for possessing, struck hot trail about
two miles south of town, and after a
strenuous chase over dale and glen,
fences, ditches and streams, the dogs
pounced on the shaggy-tailed wild beast
forest. After exchanging the usual
"after you, my dear Alphonse," one of
the hunters proceeded to pick the hairy
little brute up and tie it to his saddle,
and. ye gods and little fishes, it was but
an innocent house cat that had been so
mercilessly slaughtered. The owner of
the cat came in town the next morning
and presented a bill for $16 for the
much prized pet of the household. The
bill has not been paid and the owner has
given them a few days of grace for the
hunters to come into hotchpot with the
necessary amount, before filing his suit
for damages. One of the huntsmen be-
ing an attorney-at-law of some renown,
insists that habeas corpus proceedings
is the only proceedings that will tie. I
guess it is up to the big Judge.

Leon Has Some of thW Very Best.
While prices are low just now they
will surely rise. Mr. Edwrdy received
$1.05 per pond for his tobacco. The
growers were to blanme for drop in
prices, but careful grows will make
good profits; and all Leon county grow-
ers were careful, have abundant crops
of the best quality :
"The tobacco crop in Gadsden county
this year will be a 'record-breaker,' "
said H. W. Moseley, who arrived in
this city yesterday on the excursion
from Quincy in company with a large
number of the most prominent tobacco
men from Florida's tobacco producing
Without exception, these prominnq
citizens state that the crop and outlook
in Gadsden county is exceptional.
Never before in the history of the in-
dustry have conditions been more suit-
able to the development of this practi-
cally new field in the agricultural devel-
opment of Florida. Considerable inter-
est has been manifested in the some-
what lower prices of this year, and
many questions have been asked as to
the reason for this drop. Concerning
this, Mr. Moseley said :
"Early in the spring of 1907 leaf
houses of the North had very small
stocks and instructed their buyers to
visit immediately the section known as
Gadsden county and enter into contract
with the farmers before even the plants
were set out under shade.
"At that time prices were from 75
cents to $1 per pound. Unscrup'ilous
growers put up inferior shadings, which
means that the slats were placed too tar
apart, thereby injuring the leaf and
making many of the crops worthless as
fine cigar wrappers.
S"The buyers were compelled to rec-
ognize these contracts, and after exam-
ination found that the leaf was impos-
sible to be sold as a fine Sumatra wrap-
per. This fact, combined with the
panic, and the general stringent condi-
tions of the money market in the North,
caused it to be practically impossible
for them to dispose of their purchases,
and they therefore still have a large
quantity of this unsuitable tobacco on
hand. The consequence naturally is that
the buyers have been given quite differ-
ent instructions by their houses, and
they are buying at their own prices or
not buying at all."
It appears that the conditions men-
tioned by Mr. Moseley obtain more par-
ticularly with the smaller growers, who
are not packers, as they are compelled
to take just what priesis offered them.
They have no packing plans of their
own and they are unable to hold their
product. This, however, will not se-
riously affect the tobacco growing re-
gion of Florida, which is located in fer-
tile Gadsden county, because there are
a dozen or more growers there who
have their own packing plants. Those
men state emphatically that they will
under no circumstances accept the low
prices offered by the buyers, and expect
to hold t ieir product, and eventually
realize as high a price, if not a higher
one, than that of last year. Judging
from the enthusiasm displayed by the
Gadsden county men who arrived on
this excursion, there is no reason for
pessimism in West Florida. Their pro-
duct is in greater demand than ever be-
fore, dot only in the United States, but
in foreign countries, quantities of it be-
ing shipped to European port.
Even with the seemingly low prevail-
ing prices, many of the growers have
received prices even better than those
of last year, due, probably, to the supe-
rior quality of their product.
"We received $06 a pound for our
tobacco this year," said W. Ed-
wardy, who is vice-president of the Su-
matra Leaf Tobacco Company, of Quin-
cy, Fla. "We had twenty acres and
produced the finest crop we have ever

Mr. Gamble Lands Tarpon.
Mr. Robert Gamble returned to the
city last night from Homosassa, where
he has been on a fishing trip, and this
great admirer of the great sport of
"hooking the big ones" declares that he
has never had better sport in his life
than during the recent trip.
The one purpose of Mr. Gamble was
to land a tarpon, the games of the
finny tribe, and in this he was not dis-
appointed. While fishing he had two
strikes but he lost the first one, much
to his regret.
Mr. Gamble was not to be outdone,
however, and he continued fishing for
the big fish and shortly had another
strike. This time he had better lack
and after several minutes of the rarest
kind of sport he landed a tarpon weigh-
ing over 150 pounds and almost seven
feet in length.
In speaking of his trip Mr. Gamble
last night said : "I have never enjoyed
a trip iff my life more than the one just
finished at Homosassa, where the best
of fishing is to be had. It is a great
place for tarpon fishing and those who
are fond of the rare sport of playing the
tarpon should take the trip. Besides
this great sport of landing the big fish
the other fish are biting splendidly and
every day a large number of sheepshead
and black bass are hooked."
Several parties are already being
planned to make the trip for the purpose
of fishing for tarpon, and no doubt as
soon as it s known that they are biting
so well, and that Mr. Gamble has just
succeeded in landing one of the big fish,
many other fishing parties will be ar-
ranged.--Times- Union, 9th.
"Our Bob" sold come up here, then
go to St. Marks with his friends and
catch some more tarpon. Mr. Cates
will show him when and how and there
is plenty of them.
License Taxes WilWll eSee frrish
There is no occasion for worry be-
cause the general revenue fund of the
State is somewhat reduced at this time,
and certainly the incident does not fur-
nish ground for the calling of an extra
session of the Legislature, the expenses
of which would still further reduce the
fund. Several of the counties have not
made full settlement with the State on
account of the taxes for 1907. and it is
less than 60 days until the license taxes
.will be due. The license tax for the
year beginning October 1st will amount
to something ike $400,000. It will be
seen, therefore, that there is no occa-
sion for alarm, even if the State is a
little short just now. At this particu-
lar season of the year we are all a little
short, but those who have fall collec-
tions in direct prospect are losing no
sleep over the present reduced size of
their bank accountss -Starke Tele-

LIVE STOCK IN
Leon County Offers Many Advantages
t to Settlers.
That the raising of the best grades of
all kinds of live stock and dairying has
been made profitable, and can be largely
increased, no one will doubt. Add to it
our extra shaded Sumatra Tobacco,
along with cotton, corn and all general
I crops, and hay, velvet bean, cow-pea,
crabb-grass, beggar weed, etc., and
there is no spot on earth that offers
better advantages. Now, some way,
some how, let the world know all about
it, and the True Democrat believes the
right kind of settlers can be induced to
come here and engage in it along all
lines. Then will Leon grow great and
prosperous. On the subject of "Live
Stock in Florida," we take the follow-
ing from the Gainesville Sun :
"There is no longer any discussion as
to the fact of this State's suitableness
for the raising of all kinds of live stock,
as in too many localities the question
has been settled in favor of the practi-
cal and everyday demonstration that
the State is well adapted for this pur-
"We can point out many individuals
within our limited scope of information
who have made a success of this busi-
ness. Horses, cattle, hogs and all other
kinds of live stock are being success-
fully raised at a large profit, and weof-
ten wonder why it is that our people do
not make this one of their main occupa-
tions. But it is with regard to the in-
dustry of raising goats that we particu-
larly desire to call the attention of the
public. There is no animal which is so
free from disease as the goat; no ani-
mal is so prolific; no animal can be
raised with so little care and feed, and
we confidently state that with a very
small outlay in a few years there can be
reaped a rich harvest; for with a herd
of say one thousand head the revenue
will be enormous, as often times within
one year the increase is as much as
from sixteen hundred to two thousand
per cent. The flesh of the goat is as
palatable as the best mutton, and they
do not require as much care as sheqp.
The hides of goats are worth doubly as
much as sheep hides, and the importa-
tion of goat hides into this country
amounts up to many millions of dollars.
"With a thousand head of goats there
can be soiled and well fertilized at least
two hundred acres of land each year,
and by such soiling and fertilizing your
lands will become fertile and productive
"There is no limit to the profit aris-
ing from the raising of goats, and with
but a small effort on the part of our
farmers there will be no fertilizer bills;
and your lands will each year increase
in value and all the time you can have
a fresh kid for your breakfast or din-
ner. One of the things we do not under-
stand is why the farmer does not have
his herd of goats."

Afflicted. It is a curse to the poe-
aessor, and those who are obliged to live
AN_ Ahe same house with the posaeaeor of
lt complaining temper are martyrs. It
Is often said that we should not let the
bad tmper of others fluence us, but
it woukbeas unreasonable to spread a
blister of Spanish fies on the skin and
not expect it to draw, as to think of a
family not suffering on account of the
bad temper of one of its members. It is
like the sting of a scorpion, or of sev-
eral scorpions, a perpetual source of ir-
ritation, destroying your peace and ren-
dering life a burden.
To hear one everlasting complaint and
growl proceeding from what is aptly
called a "chronic kicker," to have every
S agreeable thought chase away by this
evil spirit of disputations, is more than
L flesh and blood can stand. This would
be a better world if the people who lose
their tempers would never find
them again.-South Florida Sentinel.

it, and lose time fretting about it.

Lve MNor*, Hate Los.
The following little sermonette, is go-
infr the rounds, credited to exchange:
If you love, love more. If you bate,
hate less. Life is too short to spend in
hating any one. Why war against a
mortal who is going the same road with
us? Why not expand the flower of life
and happiness by learning to love by
teaching those who are near and dear
the beautiful lesoo? Your hands may
be hard, but your heart need not be.
Your form may bent or ugly, but do
you know that the most beautiful flow-
ers grow in the most rugged, unshel-
tered places? The palace for care, the
cottage for love. Not that there is no
love in a mansion; but sorrow, if we
are not very careful, business will crowd
all there is of beauty out of the heart.
This is why God has riven the Sabbaths
and Saturday nights, that we may leave
business and have a little heart-cleaning.

Thlak It Saved His Life.
Lestat M. Nelson, of Naples. Maine,
says in a recent letter. "I have used
Dr. King's New Discovery many years,
for coughs, and colds, and I think It
saved my life. I have found It a relia-
ble remedy for throat'and lung com-
plaints, and would no more be with-
out a bottle than I would be without
food." For nearly forty years New
Discovery has stood at the head of
throat and lung remedies. As a pre-
ventive of pneumonia, and healer of
weak lungs it has no equal. Sold under
guamratee by all druggists. 50c and

Saturday night and Sunday in the city
as a guest of the Aragon, requested the
publication of the following statement

cerning him by the Tampa Morning
"Following its usual custom of mis-
repreeenting and villifying me upon
any and all occasions the Tampa Morn-
ing Tribune, from which I neither ex-
pect nor desire fair treatment, has re-
cently used considerable space in refer-
rin to the actions of a man named
MeLan, or McLean, who, while on a
tram and alleged to be intoxicated, ar-
rested a party in one county for some
alleged offene and took him to Hills-
borough county to have hyp incaree-
rated. The arrested party could not, of
course, be jailed in Hillsborough county
for an offense alleged to have been com-
mitted in another county.
"The Tribune, displaying it usual
lack of information, declare that this
man MeLain was a State detective, and
heap coasi of fire upon my long-suffer.
ing head because I appointed him to th-
position. I have known only a few peace
pie by the name given, and have never
appointed such a man as a State detec-
tive. The onlf man employed in this
esapecity is Charles Eaton, and he is
enough for the entire State. I am glad,
however, that the incident gave the
Tribune an opportunity of continuing
ite campaign of misrepresentation
against me, for such misrepsentation
seems to be the principal stock in trade
of this corporation newspaper. State-
ments published about me are just as
reliable as the general .run of news in

Editor True Democrat:
Dear Sir:-Please allow me space in
your paper to correct a misstatement
made by the Times-Union of last week,
in which it said: "The new military
company recently organized there, the
Dix e Guards, had the honor of having
the first issue of the new rifles." I wish
to state that Company "C," Bloxham
Rifles, was the first in the State to re-
ceive the new guns and the Quarter-
master Seargeant was the first to fire
one of the new guns-making a score of
three bulls and two four at a range of
500 yards. Major Snow, at same time
making 48 out of a possible 50 at same
range and date. Respectfully,

Sunday morning the fire company was
summoned to north Monroe street at
b:45. They arrived promptly, as usual
of our excellent company. bat the alarm
was too late to prevent serious dam-
ages. The roof was all aflame. The
company succeeded in prveting any
bat the roof from burning. The kitch-
en was practically destroyed before the
alarm went in. The furniture was dam-
aged from water only. The origin is sup-
posed to have been a collision between
rats and matches. The fire was a no-
table one due to the fact that it is the
first fire in some time that has visited
injury to one of our firemen. Mr. Wal-
ter S. McLin was painfully injured,
having slipped off of the roof on to the
stone steps 16 feet below. His injury
I.rowly escaped a very serious one,
oIlder being dislocated and several
t e bruises on his side and arms.
ie s very fortunate in getting off so
lightly, at which his many friends are

Wednesday at high noon, a quiet, but
very beautiful home wedding took place
at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. J. P.

The home was beautifully decorated
with choice pot plants and evergreens.
By the strains of Mendelssohn s wed-
ding march, rendered by Miss Whitfield,
the bridal party entered the parlor in
which were assembled the family and
friends. The bride and her maid of
honor, kiss Allie Yawn, entered by one
doorw, while at the same moment the
Iroai and his best man, Mr. Willis
entered from the opposite side.
and met at the altar, where Rev. J. E.
Wiloa performed the ceremony.
The bride wore a traveling suit of
Alee Blue, with a hat to match, and
earried a boquet of bride's roees. The
mlI of honor was dressed in white and
earriud a boquet of pink roses.

of my Line of Buggies.
I AM WILLING to abide by the de-
cision of the buggy-wise. I do not claim
to carry ALL the good Buggies in stock,
