: PrTer MPs were evidently Invented
i r .. purpose of providoig the wor-

on which to offer prayers. It bs not
lawful for a Moslem to pray on any
place not perfectly Clean, and unless
each one has his own special rug he
is not certain that the spot baa not
been polluted. It does not matter to
these followers of Mohammed how
unclean a rug that is on the floor may
be, because over it they place the
prayer rug when their devotions begin.

There was a fellow in our town,
And he was far from wise;
He tried to run a store one time
And didn't advertise.
No profits came his way at all,
His store soon failed, instead,
Then he went out and blamed the town
He said that it was dead.

Colonel PFred. L. Roeon, the prod,.
nent Confederate veteran, public sea-
vant and cities, who passed away sad-
denly at Tallahassee a few days ago.
His record in war and in peace was sech
as to make him an ornament to the pub-
lic life of his State and his career will
be an example to the youth of Florida,
pointing them to a sturdier and a nobler
manhood.-Tampa Tribune,
An indication ef the prpgressiveness
of church work in Tallahasee was em-
phasized at Trinity Methodist, Sunday
morning by a reading of the report of
that church, which the pastor, Rev. Ira
S. Patterson, carried to the conference
now in session at Miami. The report
showed that the assessments against
the church for all purposes were about
$8,000 and that over $6,000 had been
raised. Thi speaks well for the liber-
ality of the splendid people of the Cap-
ital City. --
As the letter says, but few such chan-
ces are given to a city and county to ex-
ploit its advantages without cost.
The matter should at once be taken
up by our most representative citizens
and a display of the resources of the
county be sent to Jacksonville.
One can be easily gotten together
which will attract great attention and
redound to the good of this section.
There is not another county in the
State which could present such an ex-
hibit of varied and profitable resources.

Why not have the Pardoning Board
Sty the cases in the first place ? This
would save countless expense and serve
the same purpose.-Tampa Tribune.
a Yes, why not? The board's whack
- should be first instead of last, as it
turns down Criminal, Circuit and Su-
s preme Courts with impunity, and at
a great loss to tax-payers, caused by ex-
pense of trials.-Jacksonville Metropo-
e lis.
d It certainly appears as if there is lit-
r tie use for courts when a pardoning
board pardons fifty out of the fifty-two
cases presented for investigation, with-
in one week. What on earth could the
other two poor mortals have done ?

e Newspaper advertising pays in relig-
- ion, as in the business world, according
* to the following dispatch which was re-
cently sent out from Barre, Vermont:
"Does advertising pay? Well, I should
say it does, particularly in religion,"
says Rev. Francis A. Poole,. pastor of
the First Congregational church. .When
Mr. Poole took charge of the church
three years ago it was a moribund or-
ganization. Mr. Poole started with ad-
vertisements in the Sunday morning
paper-big ones, a page when he had
the money, and three and four columns
at other times. He told the people what
was going on the church, what the ser-
mon would be about and who would be
there. "As a result," says Mr. Poole,
"the congregation has quadrupled in
three years and at a meeting of the
trustees we decided to enlarge the
church building to twice its present
The Tallahassee True Democrat wants
a West Coast Railroad built similar to
the one on the East coast, and asks
whether Mr. Flagler might not be per.
suaded to extend his road from Jack-
sonville to Tallahassee and then to t
Tampa. But, why to Tampa only?
Would it not benefit thousands giving i
southeast of Tampa, if the road was
extended to Fort Meade and east across t
the Kissimmee river to Fort Bassenger, c
and connect with the East Coast Road a
at Jupiter? This would afford an op-.
portunity for all the growers along the u
route to place their fruit and produce s
upon the western market, which under n
present conditions they cani.ot reach. a
Fort Meade Observer. 1
This is just exactly what The True h
Democrat intended to urge. if it did not
do so.
A road taking in all the towns on the o
west coast, to Tampa" and thence L
through the great vegetable and fruit S
region, connecting at Tallahassee with b
some great western system, could not t
fail to prove a profitable enterprise. e
Florida fruit and vegetables are very t
frequently conjested in the eaterso
markets to the great damage of th6se

The lands of Leon county could easi
support twenty times its present popi
lation without crowding. Instead
there being several hundred poor
tilled plantations there should be man
thousand farms of from ten to twenty
acres each. The lands of northern
Florida respond readily to cultivation
and fertilization, and there is not a fine
climate to be found. It should oe th

referred to the possibility of the cam

that raised the price of camphor wau
grievously complained of by the trust

be considered is whether the camphcr
tree so successfully grown in Florida
will yield the camphor of commerce.
The Times has issued an invitation to
the Department of Agriculture to test
the matter and let the public know the
result. If it can be done we will trust
to the horde of American promoters and
solicitors to put the industryon its feet
in record time. The whole of Fl)rida
can be converted into a camphor tree

S G~GrTimMxxm-We have tested your
PHOsPHO-AKALuj tobacco fertilizer for-
S mula, sold us as an experiment last
year, as complete fertilizer for grow-
Ing cigar leaf tobacco.
We are pleased to state that this
experiment was highly uatisfactory-
1st. Because it gave a good burn.
2nd. Because it increased the yield
200 to 300 pounds per acre.
It did not injure the color of texture
in the slightest: in fact, this tobacco
grown with your fertilizer gave a more
uniform color and texture than that
grown with other fertilizer.
If you hold this formula to this
standard, and sell this fertilizer at ap-
proximately the sme price, we are
confident that it will be vastly to the
interest of all tobacco growers to use
the same.
With kindest regards, we are,
Yours truly,

Gr.NTL.EMF:-The special shade to-

Potassium Nitrates, purchased from

you and used on my crop of shaded
cigar leaf tobacco, and on some other
shade crops, has proven perfectly sat-
lafactory. I used those goods in con-
nection with ootton-seed meal in the
proportions of 1,000 pounds of Paos-
Iro-ALKAuL to 3,000 pounds of cotton-
seed meal per acre, and think this Is
the right proportion, as the growth
was entirely satisfactory, as well as
the burn. texture and Ill the other prop-
erties that a first-class, shade-grown
crop should hive.
I feel sure that you have at last
struck the proper formula and one
that fully supplies a long-felt want,
and, as long as I grow shade tobacco
and you hold the goods up to the pres-
ent standard. I shall give you my
business for myself, tenants and cus-
As a further advantage that this
PHOmepH-ALKA.I has over all other
formulas that contain potash is that
the other goods leach all the plant-
food out of the land, while this one
(Phospho-Alkalli) adds to the proper-
ties and also produces a tobacco that
burns perfectly, which is all the use
that potash is to the tobacco.

GENTLEMEN-The burn, color, texture
and weight came up to all of my ex-
pectations, and in fact were superior
to any crop I have heretofore made of
shaded tobacco. The weight per acre
was fully one-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 slats
after it had been topped. The leaves
ran from twelve (12) to twenty-four
(24) Inches. in length. I counted at
many as thirty four (34) leaves to the
stalk. I used your PiOsPHO-ALKALI on
virgin soil, and of course there had
never been previous applications of
other fertilizers. I planted this to-
bacco, grown with your goods, fully
two weeks after planting the balance
of my crop made with other fertilizers,
and it matured at 'the same time. The
growth up to harvesting was very uni-
form. Yours truly.

If It Fits

You Wear

This Cap

By Herbert Kaufman

Advertising isn't a crucible with which
lazy, bigoted and incapable merchants can
turn incompetency into success-but one into
which brape and tenacity and courage can be
poured and changed into dollars. It is only
a short cut across the fields-not a moving
platform. You can't "get there" without
"going some."

It's a game in which the worker-not the
shirker-gets rich.

* By its measurement every man stands for
what he is and for what he does, not for what he
was and what he did.

Every day in the advertising wo. Id is another
day and has to be taken care of with the same
energy as it's yesterday.

The quitter can't survive where the plugger
has a ghost of a chance.

Advertising doesn't take the place of busi-
ness talent or business management. It simply
tells what the business is and how it is managed.
The snob whose father created and who is
content to live on what was handed to him
can't stand up against the man who knows he
must build for himself.

What makes you think that you are entitled
to prosper as well as a competitor who works
twice as hqrd for his prosperity?

Why should as many people come to your
store as patronize a shop that makes an endeavor
to get their trade and shows them that it is
worth while to come to its doors?

Why should a newspaper send as many cus-
tomers to you in half the time it took to fill an
establishment which advertised twice as long
and paid twice as much for its publicity?

This is the day when the best man wins-
after he proves that he is the best man-when
the best store wins, when it has shown that it is
the best store-when the best goods win, after
they've been demonstrated to be the best goods.

If you want the plum you can't get it by lying
under the tree with your mouth open waiting
for it to drop-too many other men are willing
to climb out on the limb and risk their necks
in their eagerness to get it away from you.

It is a man's game-this advertising-just
hanging on and tugging and straining all the
time to get and keep ahead. It is the finite ex-
pression of the law of competition which sits in
blind-folded justice over the markets of the
rCnpyright. 1908, by Tribune Company, Chlcago.)

Hamilton Tension Spring

Shears Free to True Demo-

crat Subscribers.

The Greatest Premium of the Age.

The Tension Spring attachment does away with resharpen-
ing entirely and enables the user to set the tension on the
rivet so that any kind of material may be cut with perfect
ease, without tiring the hand. The Tension Spring takes up
all wear on the rivet, making the SHEARS practically IN-
DESTRUCTIBLE. A simple turn of the little thumb-screw
shown in the engraving, tightens up the blades as closely aw
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 it 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 first-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 PREAKS or in any way becomes defective
within FIVE YEARS from date of purchase it will be re-
placed with a NEW pair without cost."

Bettr Tlacke Tells Pfpas of State
SCollege of the Groat Poet
and Patroet.
One of the most interesting and in-
spiring events of the present scholastic
year at the State College was the recent
address of Dr. S. M. Tucker, in cele-
bora.tion of the birthday of the poet,
S Th address was gven without manu.
eipt or notes. The speaker began by
i that Dec. 1908, was the thr
S hndredth anniversary of the birth of
one of the greatest patriots and poets
of the human rae, and that no inatitu-
Otie t at stood for the knowledge of the
beet that had been said and done in the
worUedo d afford topass over sehk an
occasion without some tribute to the

butiom to EnKlish metnes appears, and
here the mighty organ-musie of his
verse is heard at Its best. Dr. Tucker
then read two brief a to illus-
trate this tact-the first, from the in-
fernal council in Book II; and the sec-
ond, the opening of Book III, "Hail,
Holy Light." Milton was then com-
pared with three other world-poets,
onwer, Dante and Goethe; and it was
stated that, while each had his qualities
of transcendent greatness, Milton sur-
passed all others in subllity.
The speauer said be could nut lose
without indicating what some other
great English poets had thought about
this master of their art; so he red
Gray's tribute from "The Progreas of
Poesy;" Wordsworth's Sonnet to Mil-
ton, and Tennyson's Ateaes to Milton-
"God-sifted organ-vote of Bngland."
Dr. Tucker closed by aying that it was
impossible to Iam a time when the
name of John Mtoen, poet and patriot,

alted patriotism woaild be a souroes of

"I will come to you."
so I must meet Hilda without know-
ing what Mrs Gilbert knew. A cold
chill struck upon me. Dec. 261 That
was days and days ago, and all this
time Mrs. Gilbert bad been urging ma
to treat Hilds as a sister. Was It pos-
sible that I could be mistaken? No;

surely not. Whatever- rls. GiUbert
might have learned, it couldn't have
altered the laws of nature or undone
the divine handiwork. And yet I would
have given much for a few words with
Mrs. Gilbert. It was Hilda. however,
who appeared.
This was the first time to my knowl-
edge that she had ventured so far as
the 'drawing room, yet she walked
without a sign of weakness and with
a noble carriage. And, oh. shabe' was
beautiful beyond dreams.

Then a voice seemed to tll me that
I needed the counsel of a woman, and
whom could I appeal to but Mrs. Gil-
bert? By this time Hlid had been
transferred to the Gilbert residence, a
favor not too great toe accepted by
a young lady whose brother owns half
of a very productive gfol mine. I se-
cured a private Iqterview with Mrs.
Gilbert and disclosed to hear the truth.
"Oh, Impossible. Impossible" she
cried. "Why, you seemed to know each
other at the very first glance!"
"As I was frve years old when I last
saw my sister and she was barely
