the woods in spots ranging all

Whether it's caused by juveniles or old-
enough-to-know-better-iles it's still delinquency
or madness to cause a person to carry on acts
such as have been carried on for the past few
Someone has deliberately set out to burn
all of the woodlands of Gulf County or a
great 'part of it at any rate.
Last Thursday the fire department was
called out three times to extinguish grass fires
out by Goff Town. Everyone of them was
caused by somebody deliberately kicking one
of the many flambous placed here for warning
purposes during road construction, over into
the roadside grass. A fire of this nature in this
particular location is not too dangerous, except
for danger to a few homes. The first time was
considered accidental. The next two times were
just too much even for "co-incidence".
Sunday night, the most dastardly trick ever
pulled by youths or grown trash was pulled out
on the White City road, which is also under
construction. About midnight, when everyone
was home in bed, a lonely motorist reported a
brush fire across from the Gulf Hardware ware-
bouse. On answering the call the fire depart-
mrent found that the flambou artist had been at
work again. While on the call another motorist
stopped at the fire and reported flambous set
out in the woods all the way to White City!
Upon investigation, four of the burning pots
were found set in brushy areas between town
and White City.
Can you imagine anyone wanting to be so
destructive as to want burn the forest, which
the whole County depends on for livelihood?
If these "incendiary bombs" had gone undiscov-
cred for another hour, by now half the County
forest would be burned or still burning.
Even a sadist can go too far. But the dis-
gusting part of the whole matter is that the per-
petrators of this plot are probably otherwise so-
called "respectable" people. Such an attempt
should not go unpunished if the guilty parties
a-e ever found. How anyone can be so cruel,
destructive and just plain dumb as to pull a
trick like this is beyond the imagination of any
THE COURTHOUSE IS TOO SMALL
Part of the "Presentations" put out by the
past session of the Grand Jury brought to light
that the Grand Jury meeting room was too
small for that body to meet in without sitting
in each other's lap.
This brings out the uncomfortable fact that
our Courthouse, which was built back when
the County was carved from Calhoun, is just
not big enough to house the growing County
government office needs of this growing county. I
Next year the County retires the last of the
bonded indebtedness incurred by the building
of the courthouse. When that final bond is paid
it will mark the freedom of debt of a building
that -the County has outgrown.
Probably thoughts will then turn to the is-
suance of a bond issue to add on to the present
courthouse, whose only good construction fea-
ture is that a good breeze blows through it at all
times. In addition- to adding extra space, the
old courthouse will practically have to be rebuilt
to make it the first class building it should be.
The courtroom is like sitting in an echo cham-
ber-you can't understand a thing that is said.
The plaster is ruined on practically all the walls,
and from appearances of the plaster, the build-
ing is settling and leaks..
The only departments with plenty of room
are the courtroonr and the rest" rooms.

By Col. W. S. Smith, Retired.
Mayor of Buckhorn
WELLS, MAINE-Leaving out
of the Catskill Mountains area last
week, we headed directly for North
Adams, Mass., home of the Lucius
Coody (brother of our. wife) tribe
which is slowly converting that
area to a pebel state (Lucius being
a Florida cracker) mainly through
assistance of the stork. After a
judiciously short visit there we
headed out over the Mohawk Trail,
Nova Scotia bound.
We hit the Atlantic shore at New-.,

mansions of former sea captains
and shipowners, for this old city

Just out of Newbhityp. p t we hit
the New Hampshire state line and
about 16 miles further on we were
in Maine-quick trip through one
state, no? Those 16 miles is the
entire coast line of this state.
'Seems the state got its name from
a John Mason who lived in Hamp-
shire, England, and was given a
grant in 1629 of "that part of the
mainland of New England between
the Merrimack and Piscataqua Ri-
Just before we left New Hamp-
shire we visited Portsmouth, the
only seaport in this state, which
has had a navy yard ever since the
Revolutionary War. It was here
that, in 1905, was signed the Treaty
of Pprtsmouth which ended the
Russo-Japanese War. Strictly speak-
in most of the present-day navy
yard is not in Portsmouth, but on
r carby islands in the Piscataqua
River in the town of Kittery, Maine.
And now that we've mentioned
Kittery, we might add that from
this port to West Quoddy Head, the
most easterly point in the U. S., is
220 miles in a straight line, but the
high-water line of. the Maine coast,
including an estimated 4000 islands
is 3,478 miles.
The food and the weather up here
are both good. The nights in Mas-
sachusetts were around 53 degrees
and*in this section, the lows have
been around 48 and 49. We've been
sleeping under one or two blan-

Whitfield said the tupelo crop,
just as all other farming, is de-
pendenr on many factors to deter-
mine whether it will succeed.
'"Sometimes a heavy shower of rain
during the height of the tupelo
"flow" can dislodge millions of
opcn blossoms, causing untold dam-
age to the crop," he added.
Tupelo beemen go to a lot more
trouble and expense after their
-priize crop than do most other Flor-
ida honey producers. Because of
the desolate locality of the tupelo
gum swamps, there is hardly any
means of transportation into this
country except by river barges.
And after the tupelo season is over,
there is no other blossom crop in
the swamp sufficient to support the
Therefore, after the tupelo "farm-
er' robs his hives, he must do one
of two things. He may either under-
take the expensive task of feeding
his charges, or barging them out
to the mainland and then hauling
them to new forage. Most of the
owners transport their bees to high-
er regions of this state or to Geor-
gia for the late summer blossom
Most farmers welcome the bee-
man and readily give him a "lo-
cation" because they Have come to
realizee the value of the honeybee,
especially in pasture development
programs. For instance, good pas-
tures depend on legumes such as
clovers for supplemental vegeta-
tion. If the clover crop is expected
to re-seed itself adequately, profuse
pollenation must take place. A sin-
gle acre of White Dutch clover in
bloom has been estimated to con-
tain about 800,000 blossoms. It
would appear obvious that here is
a job for nature's little pollen car-

Each day, the car you now drive drops in value. It will never
be worth more toward a new Ford than it is this minute.
And with Ford, you'll get the car that depreciates less ...
the'car that holds onto its value longer.
Tt may cost you-money later!
Unless you own a recent model Ford, or an expensive ear,
chances are that it will be made obsolete by a new model.
But, in the low-price field, Ford is the only V-8 powered

that the '54 Ford will still be an up-to-date car with
