Chair., Dec. 4.-Mr. R. C. Snipes
writes his mother from Georgetown,
S. C., that he is making quite a success
of his law practice. As he still holds
his railroad position as General Freight
and Passenger Agent he is kept ex-
tremely busy. and if he finds his success
with the former is assured he will have
to give up the other.

Another case was that of U. A. Minor,
convicted in the Duval county court of
criminal record of larceny and receiving
stolen goods. His petition was signed,
not only by a large number of promi-

governor and governor-elect of Georgia,
and a number of prominent officials in
that State. Minor's pardon will go into
effect December 20.

The Nyaetrloes Cooper Cape.
The editor of this paper happens to
be familiar with the Isaith Cooper case
of DeSoto county, the man convicted of
the assasination of Marshal Bowman,
of Punts Gorda, and naturally we take
a keener Interest in this famous case
than other newspapers and citizens who
are not acquainted with the people of
DeSoto county and Cooper's trials and
his many escapes from the gallows.
This man has been in jail at Arcadia
for nearly eight years charged with
murder. He has been convicted and
mentened to be hung several times.
His first sentence came during the term
of ex Governor Jenning, but Jennings
saved Cooper from the gallows twice
by delaying his execution. Finally
Governor Broward became Governor,
and strange to relate, he has pursued
the same tactics that Jenninga adopted.
Neither of these Governors have seen

On one occasion it was only a
few minutes until the time of his exe-
cution, and he then stated that he
wouldn't be hung, and sure enough he
wasn't, for. just before the time for
the trap to fall that would sent him into
eternity, a reprieve was received from
the Governor by wire. It seems to be
one of the most mysterious cases in the
criminal history of Florida. The cir-
cumstantial evidence, upon which Cooper
has been convicted, time and again.
seems to leave no doubt as to his guilt.
Governor-elect Gilchrist and Cooper
are both citizens of Punta Gorda and
are acquainted. Gilchrist is familiar
with the details of the trial, and is a
resident of the place where the assassi-
nation occurred. He is familiar with
the principals in the trial. Under cheese
cireumstances, .the people of Florida
will watch with'keen interest the dis.
position that Gilchrist will make of this
ciae when he becomes Governor.-

Will Be Rushed
To Completion Now
Hundreds of Men Going to Work on
Florida's Great Rilroad to
New York. --Hundreds of men will
soon be rushed southward to work on
the completion of the great Florida
East Coast Railway, following the de-
cision of Judge Hough, of the United
States Circuit Court, in dismissing, as
without cause of action, the so-called
peonage cases that had been brought
by the United States Government
against the labor agentsof the railroad.
While the action was pending ir. the
courts the men in charge of the con-
struction work on tho sea-going rail-
road, which i3 to he Henry M. Flagler's
greatest achievrnent, were loth to push
forward with the same amount of ener-
Rey that had been displayed prior to the
action of the attorney general in taking
cognizance of the reckless charges of
labor slavery that had been made. Ev-
ery effort to make up for lost time now
will be put forward by Vice Pre. ident
Joseph R. Parrott, who has been in
charge personally since the work began
in June, 1905. Fully 2.000 men are now
employed south of Knight's Key and
more workmen will be sent to the field
of operations within a few days.
Vice President Parrott, who was re-
cently in New York on business con-
nected with the great extension which
is jumping over a stretch of thirty
miles of open ocean and over thirty
miles more of submerged keys and Is-
goons to connect Key West by direct
line with Miami, now estimates that
this, one of the most novel engineering
enterprises of modern times, will be
completed and trains running for its
tull length within a year from resuming
Already the line is completed and
trains are running for eighty-four miles
south of Miami, right down to Knights
Key. Work also is being pushed for-
ward from Key West up and over forty
miles of roadbed has been constructed
by the gangs that are working north-
ward to meet the other workmen who
rapidly are moving south. This mems

greatest of all the dneering ao
this wonderful line, however is yet to
be completed. This is the 11-mile gap
from Knights Key to Bahia Honda,
where the line is being carried over the
open ocean on concrete arches.
TRAINS TO CUBA,
The effect of the great extension on
traffic of Havana, however, already han
oeen felt because now the steamers
for Havana meet the trains at Knights
Key and take passengers and freight
from that poir.t to the Cuban capital,
instead of eighty-four miles north to
When the line is completed to Key
West huge railroad car floats will take
entire trains across the Florida Straits
to Havana, a distance of ninety miles,
without compelling passengers to leave
their ar seats or sleeping car berths,
and without the necessity of breaking
bulk on a single consignment of freight.
This will mean that the Cuban sugar
planter will be enabled to load his pro-
duct on a freight car sidetracked at his
plantation, have the ear hauled by rail
to Havana, floated to Key West and
then rail-hauled right to New York or
any other point without any of the eo-
peisse, trouble or damage dangers of a
This great project, which is bae g
financed, from beginning to end, by Mr.
Flagler personally, generally is regard-
ed by engineers as the most expensive
stretch of railroad ever built, the aver
age cost of construction, from end to
end,exceeding $100,000 a mile,while the
additional capital requirements for
docks, channeling, oar floats and equip-
ment will bring the total coat appro" l
mately to $30,000,000 Already Mr.
Flagler has expended upward of $15,-
000,000 on the work.
It was more than a year and a half
ago when this great work was inter-
rupted by the United States Attorney
General and charges were made that la-
borers on the railroad work were held
in bondage, compelled to work practt.
cally without pay and were subjected
to various sorts of oppression.
The case was presented to the Fed-
eral grand jury in New York and indict.
ments, charging conspiracy, were found
against Edward J. Triay of Jackwa,
vile, Fla., resident labor agent for the
road; against Francisco Sabbia, who
has a private bank at 225 Bowery It

The True Democrat is hopeful that it

We clip the above to correct the im-
pression of Brother McKensie. The
True Democrat has been "to the fore
in the field of Florida journalism" for
several years past, under the conduct
of its former editor. The present edi-
tor only hopes to be able to maintain
its high position among the newspapers
of the State.
The practicability of cultivating the
camphor tree in Florids proftably beio
conceded, moves the TTsmlhasms oe
Democrat to say: "The largest and
most luxuriant specimens of the cam-
phor tree to be found in Floridaa r in
Tallahassee and Leon county, showing
that our soil and climate are particu-
larly adapted to their cultivation."
Camphor culture may yet be as impor-
tant a source of wealth to Florlda as is
any other, and those counties which
have the proper soil may beo gretly en-
riched by paying attention to it.--Jack-

NEnT TEAR GOOD IR NSS.
The True Democrat is rejoiced to ee
great bouyancy among all the Wall
street Intereets. During one day lat
week there were twenty-fiye or more
stocks which made a new record in up-
ward tendency for the year, and this
gives a very good indication of the feel-
ing among financiers.
The moneyed interests evidently feel
that the panic is over and are doing
what they conscientiously can for a
restoration of confidence. The railroads
and larger industrials are again active
in selling their bonds and funding their
notes which were issued a couple of
years ago to tide them over expanded
qxpeaess and outlay.
The great resumption of business that
is Oa and constantly increasing will
seen bring a heavy demand for lumber
sand naval stores, and liven up the to-
beeso market, the three great interests
which so materially affect this setion.

rest had flunked.
He simply realized that he would
have 'to go at it in a different way. And instead of
wasting time with his fingers he drew his sword and
slashed it apart.
Every day a great business general is shown some
knot which has proven too much for his competitors,
and he succeeds because he finds a way to cut it. The
fumbler has no show so long as there is a brother mer-
chant who doesn't waste time trying to accomplish
the impossible-who takes lessons from the failures
about him and avoids the methods which were their
The knottiest problems in trade are:
1-The problem of location.
2-The problem of getting the crowds.
3-The problem of keeping the crowds.
4-The problem of minimizing fixed expenses.
5-The problem of creating a valuable good will
None of these knots is going to be untied by fum-
bling fingers. -They are too complicated. They're all
involved together-twisted and entangled over and
about each other-so intertwined that they can't be
solved singly-like the Gordian Knot they must be cut
through at one stroke.
And you can't cut the knot
with any sword except the newspaper-because:
I-A store that is constantly before the people
makes its own neighborhood.
2-Crowds can be b-outht from anywhere by
dal ad 9ertisNg.
3-Customers can always be held by induce.
cre Mg the olume of s"les.
5-Good will can only be created through pu6.
Advertising is breeding new giants every year and
making them more powerful every hour. Publicity is
the sustaining food of a powerful store and the only
strengthening nourishment for a weak one. The re-
tailer who delays his entry into advertising must pay
the penalty of his procrastination by facing more giant
competitors as every month of opportunity slips by.
Personal ability as a close purchaser and as a clever
seller doesn't count for a hang so long as other men are
equally well posted and wear the sword of publicity to
boot. They are able to tie your business into constantly
closer knots, while you cannot retaliate because there is
no knot which their advertising cannot cut for them.
Yesterday you lost a customer-today they took
one-tomorrow they'll get another.
You cannot cope
with their competition because you haven't the weapon
with which to oppose it. You can't untie your Gordian
Knot because it can't be untied-you've got to cut it.
You must become an advertiser or you must pay
the penalty of incompetence.
You not only require the newspaper to fight for a
more hopeful tomorrow, but to keep today's situation
from becoming hopeless.

be obsolet&," a legal Journal says.
"Of enacted, It continues In binding
force until repealed."
Ift seb be really the spee, there
ought to be some lively times ahead
for several classes of the community.
For Instance, what will builders have
to say to the act wbhichb penalizes any
person who erects a house without at-
taching to It at least four acres of
land? This was one of "good Queen
Bess'" laws, and It has most certainly
never been repealed.
By another un1repealed statute, which
dates back to the first year of King
James I., It is enacted that not more
than a penny may be charged for a
quart of the best old ale nor more than
a halfpenny for a like quantity of
small beer. The penalty for each In-
fraction of the act is 20 shUlling, so I
that If It were rigidly enforced It
would not need. apparently, a licensing
bill to ruin the viewers. Then, again,
a Catholic owning a horse Is still legal-
ly obliged to sell It for & to anybody 4
who chooses to offer that sum for it- .

A Bleos' Club."
The boys of the Tallahassee Public
Schools have organized themselves into
what they have called the "Boys'.Club."
This club intends to meet once a month
and dishes such questions, procure and

Wind cannot shake the slats out of
place, the slats will not warp in the heat
of the sun. and it cannot be destroyed
by fire. When put in place it will last
without repair for at least twenty years,
and the great facility of erection will
enable two men to cover as much with
the new ready-made article in a day as
twelve men could with the old wooden
slat. The metallic shade is supported
on a structure similar to that of the
wood slat shade, except that fewer
posts and wires are necessary, however
it may be placed with just as great fa-
cility on any of the structures now sup-
porting wooden shades.
The initial cost in covering an acre of
ground with the metallic shade will not
exceed by more than 20 to 26 per cent.
that of the wooden shade. But the fact
that te metal.e article has a life with-
out repair of four or five times that of

We expect the "Girls' Club" to do a
great part in spreading the influence of
the school for good.
The boys on last Friday afternoon, at
the first meeting of their club, enjoyed
a mental feast in a very appropriate
and interesting talk by Mio% Lilla Lewis.
Miss Lewis possesses rare ability and
genuine tact in holding the attention of
school boys. She spoke for thirty min-
utes to a room full of boys from eight
different grades at the last period in
the day without the slightest interrup-
The "Girls, Club" at the same hour
was entertained by readings and music
from their members, followed with an
address by Mrs. Chas. Cay, in which

In cases where it might be desirous

It may be put up in rolls like ordi-
qary woven wire fence manufactured In
any convenient length, four, five or six
feet. Any width slat may be used,
with whatever spacing the user may de-
sire in order to obtain whatever ratio of
shade to sun the grower may fancy.
This invention will appeal especially
to tobacco growers of thi section, a
to growers of plants, fruits or vege ta
blues under shade throVghout the 9oh,
and we do not hesitate to venture the
opinion that it will offer means of ftt*
their improvement in the quality of the
plants or vegetables adapted to this
method of growing, and will also afford
greater economy in their production.

A cSne Not in a Play.
An extraordinary scene took place In
the Princess' theater. London, on the
night of the first product ion (f Charles
Reade's great play. "Never Too Late
to Mend." Oct. 4, 1.'1. I during the
prison scene large quanitity of water
was thrown over Miss Moore. who took
the part of Josephs, the character done
to death by the warders. One of the
critics, Mr. Tomlin of the Morning Ad-
vertiser, rose from his seat and pub-
lclly protested against the unnecessary
cruelty. This nroused almost a riot
among the audience, and the action of
the play was stopped for some con-
slderable time. Fuel was added to the
Are by George Vinlng. the lessee of the
theater, who was playing the part of
Tom Robinson and who made a most
Imprudent speech, in which he prac-
Seally Insulted every critic present,
With the result that the theater was
left severely alone by the press for
many months. The play, however,
turned out to be a popular success
had bad, for those days, the phenom-
meal run of 140 performances.
A O Reading In Bed.
"Boys and girls under eighteen
should be strictly forbidden to read In
bed," aays the Lancet, on the author-
Ity of Dr. Hugo Fellchenfeld of Ber-
Ia, who declares that in the case of
yomng persons whose eyes are not
fU.y developed the practice Is Ukely
to induce myopia. While young peo-
ple run the greatest risk, the Lancet.
thinks that reading In bed Is unde-
sirable for persons of any age and
states that "in the case of aged, anx-
ocs, worried and bedridden people, to
whom It would seem cruelty to deny
what may perhaps be almost their
only luxury, for fear of Inducing some
sight error of refraction, care should
be taken that the light Is sufficiently
brilliant, the eyes being shaded from
1t, and that the patient lies on his
hack with head and shoulders raised."
There was an army of generals as-
sembled at Paris In 1814, and when the
various Austrian and Prussian gener-
als who had been beaten by Napoleon
cam crowding round the Duke of Wel-
Nlgton and expressing lota of compll-
inets to him for having never been
beaten by the French the duke pleas-
at them Immensely by saying, "Ah,
but you know I never met Bonaparte,
ead i have always looked on him as
eing as good as 40,000 men."

THE FARMER'S BOY.
In Many Instances He Has a Mistaken
Idea of City Life.
The great trouble with country boys
Is that they are not aware of the eir-
eumstanees under which the' city boy
sl compelled to live and work If he has
to earn his living I.y the sweat of his
brow. The Idea lildl up to the country
boy Is lo go)) to town iand get a nice.
easy. soft sniiap -rh as So-and-so has
IIiw many 4f them do It? Not one in a
thousand. Far more go there to find
work in some .close, stagnant mill, to
sweat amid the fumes of steam or to-
bacco( smoke, or perhaps in sone iron
mill or foundry, surrounded by the
curses of their fellow men, toll out a
weary day of eleven or thirteen hours
and after the day Is over go home-
and to such a home! Up some little
back street In a bandbox built of brick
and named house more than likely
our workman has his home, there to
pass away the weary hours of tk',
night amid the heat and stagnation M
probably a filthy street only a few I
wide, hot, close and dirty. In ait
large city on some sultry night one
may see the workmen and their fami-
lies in these little narrow city streets
stretched about the steps and pave-
ments In all conditions. These are not
slums either, but fairly respectable
To such a condition of life many
of our country boys have gone. and
many more are today preparing to
go. Fat pay and big pay envel-
opes? Not in these times. If our city
laborer averages $12 a week he Is a
lucky man. Tens of thousands get less
rather than more. Country boy, before
you make the change, In the name of
that country you have'been taught to
hold In reverence. -look and do not
lqpv' If you understand farming there
are just as many chances on the land
to be worked out as there are in the
This is a great country. and It
you do not like the kind of farming
you are working at there are many
others. If you belong to a family that
follows the grind, grind system of all
work and no play, when you reach
your majority and start for yourself
follow out an easier system. Do not
condemn country life just because you
have been unfortunate enough to be
brought up in the home of a man who
knows nothing but grind. Do not over-
look the fact that If such a man was
your boas In the city he would grind
your life away. Long, long before you
were twenty-one years old you would
be occupying some six feet of green
turf, where at last you would not bear
the dreaded call and curve of the boees.
Country life may not be and probably
is not what many would like to color
It; but. all things being equal, It Is far
preferable to city life. That is just
where It comes in. City life is never
compared with country life on an
equal plane. Remember that If you
must work In the country for a living
you will have to work In the city for
one, too, and if you possess the ability
In yourself to rise above the ordinary
workman In the city that same abUility
will carve out a bome for you In the
country. Look before you leap, con-
sider all things, and If you are sno
you can better yourself In thi city Pga
If not, stay on the old farm.

which has done all its own oeuatruetion
work without subletting a single con.
tract, the use of every convict under
sentence. Had this offerb4en accepted
the road would have had a auteilent
number of men at work at forty cents a
day without the importation of a single
bat of labor.
When the proposition was outlined to
Mr. Fhagler by his representatives he
deelnedto build the road by any bands
other than free American labor, and
the work of bringing in this labor was
begun. At first the men were paid
$L a day and had to make their con-
tributions toward their own commisary
department. This, as was found early
in the proceedings, was unsatisfactory
and within a short time the railroad was
paying a minimum of $1.50 a day to its
men and providing them with their food
and quarters Figures connected with
the work show 4tat it has cost the com-
pany $1.08 a day to feed each man em-
ployed and both Gens. Shuttuc and
Brooke of the United States army, or.
tours of inspection of .the work, de-
clared that the sanitary conditions of
the camps and of the commisamriat for
the men were better than was to be
found in the regular United States
It is a significant fact that while the
so-called peonqge cases ,were pending
in the United Statee Court fully 1,500
letters were received by the men in
charge of the construction work and of
the litigation written by men who had
been engaged m building the road and
who voluntarily offered their services
as witassee to tell of the conditions of
i and of the work. The gov-
