"MADE IN JACKSONVILLE."
The Jacksonville Board of Trade's
"Made in Jacksonville" campaign
which has been recently inaugurated
will prove an important factor in
"boosting" the city. It will help
the manufacturers who are already
here and it will bring other indus-
tries to the city. This movement
should have the co-operation of
every householder in Jacksonville.

Adopt Resolutions about Patronizing
"Made in Jacksonville."
"11\\ereas. At a mass meeting of. busi-
ness inen of the city of .lacksonville, hehl
under the auspices of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade on Thursday evening.
June 25, 1908, there was an oqwn, free dis-
cussion regarding tie advantages of pat-
lonizing home industries: therefore, be it
Resolved, That we desire to pledge,
ourselves to hearty co-operation with the
Board of Trade in the campaign it has
inaugurated, and each of us, individually.
to do our part toward the upbuilding of
all the industries in the city by calling for
goods 'Made in Jacksonville.' or handled
by Jacksonville wholesale or retail deal-
ers and to give the preference to all our
home merchants, and business men gen-
erally; provided prices and quality are
equal to those obtained outside the city;
be it also
"Resolved, That we earnestly request
the citizens of Jacksonville to fall in line
and help push along this great movement,
which will have the tendency to largely
increase the prosperity of the city and its
citizens and rapidly push Jacksonville
forward to the 100.00t) population mark;
be it also
"Resolved, That these resolutions be
published in the daily papers and put in
printed pamphlet form, together with a
descriptive account of the exhibition of
goods 'Made in Jacksonville,' now open
to the public in this auditorium, and this
pamphlet be mailed to every householder
in the city of Jacksonville."
The above resolutions were passed at
an enthusiastic mass meeting held in
the Board of Trade auditorium Thursday
night, the object of the meeting being
the encouragement of home industries.
There were about 200 people present, in-
cluding several ladies and President Hours
presided, and called upon Col. Edwin
Brobston as one of the pioneers in the
building of the Atlanta, Birmingham and
Atlantic Railroad, to make an address.
Colonel Brobston who had recently at-
tended the banquet in Atlanta, to cele-
brate the completion of the road, told of
his connection in the early days of the
project. He spoke of the importance of
Jacksonville being an objective point of
the roal and the nec-essitv of some ac-
road extended to this cit y.
Mr. Barrs' motion prevailed, and then
this well-known and progressive citizen
made an enthusiastic address, in which
he urged all to kelep up the goo work in-
augurated for Jacksonville.
Secretary Richardson's Report.
II. H. Richardson, secretary of the
Board of Trade, then gave his report of
the excellent work accomplished, and he
was liberally applauded. In ns. report
Mr. Richard-on went into details, urging
lihearty co-opelration on the part of all and
pleading for constant boosters for the
city. In his report, Mr. Richardson,
among other things, said:
"It is the usual custom of commercial
cities to rank first among their industries
the manufacturing lines. All of the
large and successful cities of this country
have been made what they are by their
manufacturing industries. When I start-
ed in this campaign, the first step taken
was to send a circular to all the manu-
facturers whose names were known to us,
asking them to fill out a blank sent
with the circular, detailing the amount
of capital invested, the annual output and
its valuation, the number of employees,
amount of pay roll, how many the in-
dustry added to the population in the
way of its residents, whether they sold to
wholesale or retail trade, the patronage
accorded to them hy our citizenship and
whether or not 'h y would brand their
goods with th' "'MADE IN JACKSON-
VILLE' sign Ad co-operate with us in
this undertaking. This circular went out
to about sever'tv firms, of which thirty-
three responded with the information.
Value of Industries.
"It will be a matter of interest to the
audience to know the value of our in-
dustries to the community, and it is to be
regretted that every manufacturer did
not report to our request. However, for
your information, I will state that the
thirty-three industries answering the cir-
cular furnished the following figures:
Amount of capital invested. ..$1,743,000
Value of annual output ........ 4432,300
Annual pay roll............... 614,826
Number of employees .......... 1,A47

"The proper set uence of business is for
Ihe manufacturer to sell out his output to
the wholesale dealer or jobll.r. who, in
turn, should sell his goods to the retailer.
who passes it on to the consumer. Thus
every line of business in a city ought to
be interested in securing as many indus-
tries which are practicable and possible of
becoming paying investments
"I believe the work we have done al-
ready has been of great lwnetit to our
factories, and it remains for each of us
to do our little part toward improving the
conditions in this respwet. Every one
who is a householder in this audience
should go home from this meeting with
his mind made up to have his wife or
housekeerwr, when ordering the house-
hold supplies, to insist that the retail
dealer furnish her with goods "Made in
Jacksonville,' or handled by Jacksonville
jobbers and retailers.
"It has been stated to me that if we
are selfish enough to ask our entire citi-
z- zenihip to buy all their supplies in Jack-
sonville, how could we. in justice, expect
to sell the balance of our products to
other cities? My answer to that is this:
There are numberless towns, villages and
hamlets in our territory tlat are de-
pendent ulun a city like Jacksonville, and
their trade prolwrly Ielongs to us, for
the reason that they have no factories.
and in many cases no wholesale houses.
and this argument has no foundation
upon which to base it.
"*The manufacturers, wholesalers and
retailers, are not wholly blamele-s in this
matter, for it is a fact that the many
visitors to this exhibition have stated to
me that they had no idea that such and
such article was Ieing made here. This is
due possibly to lack of sullicicet capital
to advertise their goonls in the way gdsls
are advertised by large manufacturers in
other parts of the country. Judicious ad-
vertising is one of the best investments
a manufacturer or dealer can make. and
this exhibition is going to be one of the
best and certainly the cheapest. adver-
tisements they ever had."
There were interesting discussions.
along the line of Mr. Richardson's ad-
dress by several local manufacturers and
other nenmlwrs of the Iloard of Trade.
FIRST BALE OF COTTON WAS SOLD

this year's cotton crop was sold i, t auction

ried on board the Mauretania. sailing at
noon for Liverpool, where it will again be

CAMPHOR CULTURE IN FLORIDA.

men of foresight and conservatism, who
have grasped the possibilities of camphor
growing: and who at the same time would
not lend their names and efforts to a
chimerical proposition. They have form-
ed a close corporation. under the name of
the American Camphor Forest and Prod-
It was about twenty years ago that the
Department of Agriculture made its first
experiment at camphor growing. It ob-
tained at great cost a large quantity of
camphor seeds from the Far Kast, and
had them planted in the southern part of
the United States, from California to
Florida. In almost every locality the ex-
periment failed, and very little more was
thought about it. As a result of the in-
ve-tigation, however, it was learned that
Southern Florida was well adapted to the
culture of the camphor tree. The seeds.
planted in the experiment of a score of
years ago have been transformed into
magnificent trees, some of them twenty
feet high. Trees on the land of Dr. George
K. Walker of Huntington. Fla.. and Mrs.
Henry Hubbard of Detroit. Mich., were
placed at the disposal of the government
ex|ierts, and were found to yield camphor
which, when subjected to scientific tests.
proved to be identical with the campher
of the Orient. As a result of the exl)eri-
ments, it now seems possible to raise cam-
phor trees :,ver a large part of the area
in Florida from which frost has driven
the orange industry.
If the camphor tree were not hardy
and tenacious of life it never could stand
the methods by which its precious sub-
stance is taken. It is not tapped as the
rubber tree is. The camphor is distrib-
uted throughout the whole tree, pIrticul-
larly in the leaves, twigs and smaller
branches. These are pruned off, macerat-
ed put in a retort through which steam
is passed. The steam and other vapors
are then condensed in a cool chamlwr in
which the oil and crude camphor are de-
posited, and it takes only a simple process
to separate the crude camphor and the
oil. The camphor is then subjected to
whatever degree of refinement is rqluir-
ed by the use to which it is to be put.
As the camphor tree is very heavily
branched, it is possible to obtain from
200 to 250 pounds of leaves and branches
each year. and this material runs about
3 to 5 per cent camphor and 2 to 4 per
cent camphor oil to the tree. By the
methods of the Department of Agriculture
about .350 trees are planted to the acre.
The camphor trees grow very rapidly and
pruning may begin when they are only
three years old, although the best results
are not obtained until after they have at-
tained the age of five years. Just as the
product of the tree is the enemy of all
kinds of insects, so the tree itself seems
to lwe free from the ravages of insects or
plant disease.-Paint. (il and Drug Re-

nails, and packages for roasted coffee,
spices, crockery, fruits and vegetables,
follow in the order named, while glass,
manufacturers, baking powder compa-
nies. liquor distillers, and candy, tobacco,
and che4'ese packers are big users of bar-
rels. The demand for barrels for molas-
ses. oil, lard, and pork, is also enormous,
while dry paint, glue, snuff, oatmeal,
screws, castings, and general hardwood
articles annually increase the demand on
the cooperage supply.
While the amount of expenditure for
barrels can be quite closely estimated for
a given year, it is not possible to say
how many barrels are in actual use. The
life of a barrel is put down at one year
by the trade, but this is far from true. A
majority of barrels are used many times.
They begin as sugar or flour barrels, and
are then sold to the farmer for shipping
his produce to the market. It may be
that they are returned to him several
times, carrying potatoes to the market on
the first trip. and tobacco or lettuce on
the next. each cargo being lighter in
weight than the previous one, owing to
the weakened condition of the barrel.
Finally the barrel may serve out its life
work as a refuse receptacle, and in the
end can be used for fuel. Thus, it may be
said. that a barrel fills as useful a career
as almost any other manufactured article.
and its life is much longer than a season.
The demand for barrels is steadily
growing because modern machinery has
made it Iossible to make them for the
trade cheaper than almost any other
form of durable package. That it is the
most convenient form of package has long
been acknowledged. The timber used in
tight barrels has to be selected with
care, as it must not only be water tight,
but barrels for the oil, whiskey, and
paint trades in addition must be capable
of resisting high internal pressure. The
luimlwr used for this work must be care-

th.t Mr. Atkinson and his able associates
have also given the matter timely thought
and the consolidation of the two compa-

Importance of Jacksonville.
Referring to the speech made by him
at the Atlanta banquet Mr. Stanton said:
"In my speech last night at the banquet
tendered the Atlanta, Birmingham and
Atlantic Railroad Company and its freids
by the city of Atlanta I brought out the
point that this great railway system,
having established its lines to Brunswick,
Ga., over which the products of coal and
iron and grain from Alabama and the
great west would find their way to ship
side for export to the markets of the
world and that soon its lines will be con-
nected through to Tampa Fla., via Thom-
* asville, over which the merchandise of
commerce will find its way to the West
Indies and Mexico and South America and
the Orient via the Panama canal, but
that these lines were the heavy freight
trunk lines of the system, and in order for
a system of railway to be successful in all
departments of its traffic it must not neg-
lect the trunk line for its passenger
traffic, my position being that Jackson-
ville, Fla., is now and will become more
and more important in the southern pas-
senger service to Florida and the West
Indies; that Jacksonville is now, and will
continue to be, the metropolis of the Wst
Indies, and is now the distributing point
for passengers to the South and to the

in order to hold their quota of the pas-
senger list. This proves Jacksonville's
advantage as a distributing point then;
it is still more important now. There is
but a short gap to be built from Wayeross
to Jacksonville, and this is the trump card
yet to be played by Mr. Atkanson and his
able coworkers to give to his already
matchless system the absolute control of
freight lines (as above noted, he already
has the key), but, if you please, this link
from Waycross to Jacksonville gives hinm
the control of the passenger traffic also.
May his matchless sagacity indorse these
THE PRESENT STATUS OF THE COT-
TON BOLL WEEVIL.
Following the plan that has been pur-
sued for several years, the U. S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture has recently made
a careful examination to determine the
present status of the Doll weevil. Agents
from the headquarters at Dallas have
visited 40 localities in the five States.
namely, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Arkansas, and Oklahoma, infested oy tlhe
cotton boll weevil. At these 40 localities
a total of 133 fields has been examnineil.
In each locality from two to five repre-
sentative fields were selected. In each
one of these, groups of plants were exanm-
ined to ascertain the number of weevils
present. An estimate was then made of
the number of plants per arre and the
number of weevils per acre could there-
from be easily computed. Special pains
were taken to obtain representative or
typical fields in each locality. Much as-
sistance in this matter was had from pre-
vious work in practically all of the same
localities in different years, from which

voted to other crops. In such cases near-
by fields have been selected.
The results of the present examination
on the whole are very encouraging. The
number of weevils per acre present at this
time seems to be much smaller through-
out the infested area than at this time
last year. This must be due principally
to the unfavorable weather last fall, espe-
cially the very early first killing frost.
In northern Texas, which includes Den-
ison. Dallas. Paris and Wolfe (ity, 18
fields were examined and an average of
three weevils per acre was found. In
this area in 1907 no weevils were found on
the first examination. This constitutes
the only considerable exception to the
generally more encouraging report of
this year. In eastern Texas the present
examination revealed no weevils in twen-
ty-three fields in six localities visited. An
examination last season showed 22' wee-
vils per acre at this time. An average of
256 weevils was found as against an aver-
age of 30S in the same localities last sea-
son. In western Texas five fields were
examined at this time, showing an aver-
age of 11 weevils per acre as against 101
in this locality in 1907. In central Texas
the conditions seems to be almost exactly
like those found in 194)7. Thirty fields
were visited in central Texas at Austin,
Brenham. (orsicana, Giddlings. lMexica.
Navasota. and Waco. At these places an
average of 176 weevils liwr acre was found
as against 174 for 1907.
In Louisiana fifteen fields in five local-
ities were visited. The localities are as
follows: Alexandria, Evergreen. Mans-
field. Marksville. and Shreveport. Here
an average of 174 weevils per acre was
found as against 4.85 for 1907. The gen-
eral condition in Louisiana setms to I-.
nic-li more favorable than last season.
Nevertheless localities have Is-en found in
that State where the number of weevils
present Ipr iacre i- very tigh.
Int a Isor-
tion of Avoyelles Parish as many as i,-
000 weevils per acre have been found. In
Arkansas four fields were examined in two
localities with a showing of -24 wtevils lH-r
acre in conliarison with alniit the sale
numlwer in 1907 In Oklahoma. -- 7a
Louisiana, the conditions are evidently
nuch more favorable than last year. In
the State of Oklahoma five hwcalities were
visited and no weevils were found. Of
course this does not mean that wIcevils
will not ow cur later, since the insects have
not emerged from hilwrrnation or at least
have not emerged in such numl-ll -r as to
result in their being found undler the con-

Tree of Hils aMd Flat
There are two types of the tree-that
which grows on the hillsides, and the see-
ond, which grows on the flats along the
rivers and streams. The usual type is
that of the slope-that is, the growth
found on the steep sides of the coast
ranges-and side by side with the redwood
grow other trees, such as red fir, tanbark
oak. white fir and madrone. As the
slolpes Iecome moderate, the altitude low-
er. tbe soil deeper, the forest becomes
denser, until on the rich flats and in the
gulches the second type is developed. On
the lwst redwood flats no other tree grows.
On the slopes 225 feet is about the
maximum length and ten feet its greatest
diameter, while on the flats, under better
conditions, the tree grows to be 350 feet
high, with a diameter of thirty feet, and
occasionally giants exceed this. Most of
the redwoods are from 400 to 800 years
old. The oldest tree scientifically mesa-
ured was 1,000 years. After the tree has
passed 500 years it usually begins to die
