Editor John G. Collins has sold his

The press of the State will miss Bro.
Collins from its ranks. He made The
True Democrat one of the best weely
papers in Florida. Through his paper
he has done much for his State and his
party. He certainly has the best wishes
of every newspaper man of Florida as
well a large circle of warm friends
throughout the State.-Record, DeLand.

Milton A. Smith succeeds John G.
Collins in the editorial management of
the Tallahassee True Democrat, an-
nemncement of the change having been
made in the last issue of the Democtat.
The editor of the Courier knows Mr.
Smith. When we were first enjoying
the delightsome experience of using the
editorial "we" on a little weekly paper
at Piedmont, Ala. Milton Smith was
doing good work fighting Populism and

to say, without any reservations

F thbee cast hbi lot among them.
While we will miss the feeuliarecintlia-
tions of logic and wisdom with which
Mr. Collns has endowed the Democrat
and regret to lose him from the journal-
istic ranks of the State, we are glad
that he has left his charge in such able
hands and we extend to his successor a
cordial and hearty welcome. Plant
City Courier.
The retirement of Mr. John G. Collins
from the editorial control of The True
Democrat will be regarded by all who
I know him as a great loss to journalism
in Florida. We hope his health may
soon be restored, and that we will soon
hear of him in journalistic life again.
r. Milton A. Smith, late of Alabama,
has assumed control, and we hope that
Iall will welcome him to his new home,
and support him in his new undertaking
as loyally as they did Mr. Collins!
After giving his readers a clean, hon-
est, home newspaper for many years
past, Editor John G. Collins has retired
from the field of journalism, and hence-
forth Milton A. Smith will publish the
Tallahassee True Democrat.-Palatka
John G. Collins has sold the Tallahas-
see True Democrat to Mr. M, A. Smith
formerly of tbhe Anniston, Ala., Hot
Blast, and retiriti from journalism, a
retirement that is the more to be re-
gretted in that it was forced by contin-
ued ill-health.- DeFumak Breeze.
Editor John G. Collins, of the Talla-
hassee True Democrat, has retired from
the journalistic field on account of fail-
ing health. We will miss him-and we
wont be the only one. Mr. Collins made
a distinctive mark on the sands of Flor-
ida journalism, and it will be long ere
his footprints are altogether oblitera-
ted. Mr. Milton A. Smith is welcomed
as his successor.-Orlando Sentinel.

Editor John G. Collins, of the Talla-
hasees True Democrat, retires with the
last week's issue of that paper from its
editorial management and Milton A.
Smith takes his place as editor. Ill
health is the reason of his retirement.
The Observer expresses regret to see

Mark Twain Is


Noted Author and Humorist Is In
Best of Health, and Seems to Be
Enoyting Life.
New York, Monday.-Though Mark
Twain may never realize the confessed
ambition of his boyhood days to become
President of the United States there is
no room to doubt that his fame is al-
most as widespread and his popularity
as great as any occupant of the execu-
tive chair at Washington. This was
evidenced today by the stack of letters
and telegrams he received on the occa-
sion of his birthday. He confesses to
seventy-three of these anniversaries
and frankly declares that he likes them
so well he hopes to have many more of
Since last spring the veteran humor-
ist has been making his home at a
charming little country place he bought
in Connecticut. But the charm of his
old haunts along Broadway and Fifth
avenue have not lost their fascination
for him and almost every week he man-
ages to run into town to spend a day or
two at his favorite club and have a
pleasant chat or a game of billiards
with his old associates. Despite his
seventy-three years Mr. Clemens pre-
sents a picture of hale, alert activity,
and seems to enjoy the best of health.

Special Services at the Catholic
Beginning next Sunday, December
6th, at 7:30 p. m., a series of lectures,
sermons and instructions covering the
dogmatic and moral sides of the Chris-
tian religion will be delivered at the
Catholic church here. There are many
persons in our town who have never
yet been in a Catholic church many
who know very little about Catholic
teaching and man who have heard
hard things said about Catholics. A
special invitation is extended to sues to
attend all the services that they may
find out for themselves what the Cath-
olic church really is and the secret of
its wonderful progress in every coun-
try. Some have tried to persuade
themselves that one church is as good
as another, and yet they have leaned
from their Bibles that Christ is not di-
vided, and that his last prayer before
leaving this earth was that his follow-
ers maght bp one asHe and the Father
were one. Why should Christians be.

SThe financial situation is continually
The Argus wants it distinctly under-
S stood that the Sopchoppy girls are not
doppy. __ t
Leon county has many prosperous '
farmers. They look it, act it, feel it and
good bank accounts show it. .
The great Masonic temple in -Tack-

It every Mason in the State will feel a
personal interest. t
There is one turkey The True Demo- o
erat would like to see slaughtered- o

The American fleet which has been

May its return voyage be as successful tr

It will cost the country $12,930,000 to
take the 1910 census. Probably it p
would be worth it if it did not take the
citizen ten years longer to learn what o
the enumerators had done. c
The True Democrat has had quite a
number of people to commend the edi- a
trial of last week on getting together C
for the good of Tallahassee. Well, get- w
ting together will certainly bring the ti
results. a
Instead of going to war as has been t
predicted for a couple of years, it is
now believed that the United States
and Japan have established a treaty o
which will be of great importance to
the two countries.
The Quincy Times claims that Gads- a
den county is large enough to contain ti
60,000 more families. Ditto over in o
Laou. And we not only have the room b
but the richest kind of soil on which
they can earn a subsistence. s
Tallahassee has three splendid bank- t
eg institutions presided over by con. n
* servative officials who protected the in- fi
terasts of their patrons during the re- It
emat financial depression and prevented w
am- calamitous failures. Now all are
ready for the period of prosperity that a
i eertainly corning.
All the tertwhichaffect the
e-ammercial life of Tallahassee and con-
tious country are looking up. Lum- id
her is advancing, tobacco is advancing, lI
ettoo is advancing and turpentine has f,

within the past month. Prosperity will Tt
soon be with us again. t

Mr. Talcott H. Raml, ed the Yal
Class of '69, has iased an appeal i
"a memorial at the Univ raity t
former soldier graduates." sad Is breo
enough in his opinion to urge that I
such a memorial is erected It sheOl
recognize the valor of the Cofederat
as well as the Union soldier.
From a copy of bis plea sent to hi
Tallahassee friend, Mr. R. W. Williams
The True Democrat Is permitted to e
tract the following:
"Adams' oration at the Cetenal eel
ebration of the birth of Lee in Jasm
1807, is a landmark in the history of aw
tional feeling. It is a safe prop timtle
that the statement made by the urato
that had he been in General Lee's site
nation, a citizen of a Southern State In*
stead of Massachasetts, he would have
been found fighting on the Confederate
side, would not have been made by a
member of the Adams family twenty.
five years ago, or te6, or possibly flAe."
The greatest wonder of The True
Democrat is that a gentleman so astute
as Mr. Russell has remalmied o long in
the dark, and is just now waklkg up to
the tact that while the Souther people
will ever appreciate and commemorate
the fidelity and valor of its soldery, the
amenities of the war have IM slace
been forgotten. ,
Southern orators of national reptas-
tion have beendisseminating these views
upon the stump and lecture platform to
every State in the Union, since the eslo
of the reconstruction era, and no more
loyal people to the Union can be fsud
in Maine or Massachusetts than in Gear-
gia and Florida.
Yes, let Yale erect a great memorial
to her patriotic dead, and let it commen-
orate as well the loyalty and devotion
of Lee, Jackson and Longstreet as of
Grant, Sherman or Sheridan.
The editor of The True Democrat has
ever believed in the impositionof ditiea
ipon luxuries, and as near sholute free
rade as possible upon the necessities of
ife. This is reasonable, and all govern-
nents should direct taxation as near as
possible toward this end.
Tobacco is a luxury and an import tax
on tobacco is hurtful to no man, be-
:ause there is nothing that necessitates
ts use.
The True Democrat understands that
i strong effort will be made in the, nxt
Congress by the importers of cigar
wrappers and fillers to secure a redue-
ion on imported goods from Holland,
nd if this is done the cheap product of
hat country will come into strong com-
petition with the Florida and Georgia
Sumatra leaf, ai.d probably destroy one
Df the most promising and profitable in-
lustries of this section.
We understand that petitions are be-
ng circulated throughout North Florida
and South Georgia asking that the du-
ies be retained, and for our own pre-
ervation they should be signed by every
ody to whom presented.
Let our Congressmen know that the
plendid beginning of the tobacco indus-
ry in this section may become of im-
ense industrial and commercial bene-
it if let alone, and probably an abso-
ate failure if the duty is interfered

In this particular line of pursuit we
re ready to exclaim:
Many of the young ladies at the Flor-
ia Female College are writing back
otters to their home papers which are
iull of interest, and invariably speak of
he needs of a new college building.
'his is the right way to bring the mat-

nd secure an appropriation for a build-
ig that will meet the needs of the

Hon. John L. Neeley, one of the rep-
eseritatives-elect from this county, tells
'he True Democrat that his ambition is

titution here that will accommodate

IH is a gentleman of commendable
modell. He has never sought honor
or mnolminut or expected financial re-
ward t"r his work, but Ihe is deeply ap-
reciative of these warm commnMda-
tions from his professional brethren.
Governor Gilchrist has publicly de-
clared that he would appoint only sober,
able, honest and efficient men to the po-
sitions under him. John Collins meas-
res up to every one of theseattributes,
and no more loyal man to his admini s-

upright one, can be found in all the [
State of Florida.
And the present editor of The True r
Democrat would rejoice to see the abil- t

alsed in some substantial way by the in- T

Hamilton Tension Spring

Shears Free to True Demo-

crat Subscribers.

The Greatest Premium of the Age.

The Tension Spring attachment does away with resharpea-
tog etirey sad enables the user to met the temalomo on the
rivet as that aay kind of material may be cut with perfect
eMe, without tiring the hand. The Tension Spring takes up
Swear om the rivet, making the SHEARS practically IN-
DESTRUCTIBLE. A simple turn of the little thumb-screw
msown in the engraving, tightens up the blade as closely as
may be desired. Any woman who has had the exasperating
experience of trying to use a dull pair of shears can readily
appreciate the value of the new invention WHICH KEEPS
THIS PAIR OF SHEARS ALWAYS sharp and in perfect
cutting condition. No matter how many pairs of shears or
scissors you may have around the house, you need this pair
with the Tension Spring, and when you get and use it once,
you will use 4t in preference to any other you may have.
These SHEARS are perfectly finished and heavily nickel
plated eight inches in length.

We Guarantee

the quality of the material and workmanship in this pair of
SHEARS to be flrst-class, that the Tension Spring device
doubles the usefulness of the SHEARS and does away with
the need of resharpening, and furthermore, our Guarantee
Certificate accompanies every pair, agreeing "that if-this
pair of shears BREAKS or in any way becomes defective
within FIVE YEARS from date of purchase it will be re-
placed with a NEW pair without cost."

How to Get the Shears.

Fill out this blank and mail a money order for $1.25. for
The True Democrat one year and a pair of these shears will
be mailed to you within ten days, absolutely free

"Pliny wrote somewhere, 'The king
bee Is the only male, all the rest being
females.' And Moses Ruaden, beekeep-
er to Charles II.. stoutly denied, in or-
der to please his royal master, that the
large bee, the ruler of the hives, be.
longed to the gentler sex.
"Even Shakespeare couldn't bear to
think that the bee of bees, the largest
and wisest aud fairest, the hive's ab-
solute lord, was a female. No, all the
proofs notwithstanding. Shakespeae
called her a male. Don't you remel
bor the lines-
"Creatures that by a rule In nature teaol

They have a king and officers of sorts."

GOMTraUM-The burn, color, texture
and weight came up to all tof y Oe-
pectatious, and In fact were superior
to any crop I have heretofore made of
shaded tobacco. The weight per mare
was fully oAe-third more than where
I used other fertilizers and amounted
fully to 1.450 pounds per acre.
I have nine (9) foot shades and the
tobacco grew through the top alats
after it had been topped. The leaves
ran from twelve (13) to twenty-four
(24) inches In length. I counted as
many as thirty-four (34) leaves to the
stalk. I used your PHooPHO-ALKAU on
virgin soil, and of course there had
never been previous applications of
other fertilizer. I planted this to-
becco, grown with your goods, fully
two weeks after planting the balance
of my crop made with other fertlltsers,
.and It matured at the same time. The
growth up to harvesting was very uni-
form. Yours truly.

The Appetite, the Income a-

+ii '[



"Axminister apptite and rag carpet income" is often
men of fastidious taste, whose earning capacity is not w would like.

And yet such men can gratify the most 'taute, in the matter of clothes,
for HIGH ART CLOTHING is to measure e in everything but the price.


The HIGH ART system of cutting
drafts each pattern individually,
and completes each size in itself

The HIGH ART method does not permit the cutter to change trousers or sleeve
lengths or any single dimension: for instance, stretching a 82 inch trouser pattern
into a 34 inch inseam by adding 2 inches to the length. The result is a positive
and exact size for every MHGH ART wearer, which insures a precise custom made fit.

T HERE is something about our fall showing of HIGH ART SUITS which makes us en-
thusiastic to a degree---it may be the fetching styles, it may be the smart patterns, it
may be the value, it may be the low prices, or it may be all four--that YOU can easily
learn for yourself when you see them.

Will Send Rieprestatives to contestt
For Medals Offered by the Florida
Press 3Bsoncatlen.
A few weeks ago the question of
sending a representative from the Leon
High School to the Declamation Con-
test to be held at Gainesville, Fla ,
January 1, 1909, was put before the
High School Literary Society. It was
decided to have a preliminary contest
in the school in order to select the per-
son best prepared to represent the
school in the final contest.
The society nominated Misses Helen
Saxon, Rosa Yon, Bessie Berand. Rubie
MeLin and Messrs. John McLin, Eugene
Casler, Russell Mickler, and Thomas

Pruitt. All of these except Rubie Mc-
Lin, John McLin, Eugene Casler and
Thomas Pruitt dropped out before the
time for the contest, which was held in
the chapel of the Primary school build-
ing last Friday afternoon.
The selections were good and wellde-
livered. The judge were Misses Lilla
Lewis, Ethel Peters and Rev. J. E.
Though, as the judges all admitted, it
was hard to render a decision, the bear-
ing away of the "palm" fell to Thomas
We believe that Tom will represent
the school with much credit. He is an
exception to the rule that good declaim-
ors are usually poor students, for he
stands high in all of his elases. Tom
is also an exception to the rule that
"preachers generally have bad boys."
