The valie of cheerfulness was nev-

worth a hundred groans in any state

The Ocala Banner does not stand
aloie s Its opposltUom to war and the
nmraery at a large standing army.
Whbea a ma wants something there
is O mstaking the sign. and he gen-
erally gets what he wants, and espe-
cially If he makes huge preparations
to get It.
ia the Medical Journal of Columbus,
Ohio. for February, we find the fol-
lowing strenuous editorial on the
"Wholesale Murder and Folly of
We call the attention of the Pensa-
cola Journal to it.
The editor says:
Are these vast armies that are now
kept in idleness thoroughly demoral-
ized for any useful avocation, tyran-
nized over by their officers who are
accustomed to scenes of debauchery
and cruelty to be dismissed and the
millions who compose them become
producers, tillers of the soil. instead
of creating national debts, which must
be paid out of the sweat and toil of
the laboring men?
Are these multitudes of military
parasites that serve no purpose but to
maintain the fictitious glory of com-
manders and to be used as a bug-a-boo
to frighten other nations into com-
mitting the same folly, these degrad-
ed and degrading multitudes to be
mustered out and sent home to learn
the arts of true civilization, make
homes, rear families and build cities?
The strangest riddle that history
presents is the fact that for eighteen
centuries these people who had been
busiest in making w r. are its very
ones who have professed allegiance to
the teachings of Jesus, who did not
believe in war, who did not even be-
lieve in self-defense.
And another riddle equally strange
is that an insignificant minority oui
the people of the world can command
the overwhelming majority to shoot
each other to death and be immdi-
ately obeyed.
If th.-? le% who believe in war would
fight with each other they would soon
be extermnintlated and the world woullti
be rid of them. But this is not what
happens. Th- riddle is that they make
armies of those who do not believe
in war. to -hoot down other armies
who do not believe in war.

Wo a northern man must be,
or rye waited here. and I've

But nobody comes!" she cried
So In the north
the word went forth.
To a territory wide.
There was a man fr3m Harlem.
Who journeyed to the south.
Tke roads werem dry. and dusty, too.
As also was his mouth.
He walked Into a hostelry.
His whistle there to wet:
He had no fear:
He asked for beer-
He's in the cooler yet.

There was a man from Boston. Mass..
A literary gent:
He traveled down to Dixieland
And cultured as he went
He maid the air was bracing and
Intoxicated him-
They tied him fast
And quickly cast
Him Into a dungeon dim.
A traveler from Mllwaun, Wis.,
Went down the Mumibaip.
When be wet down he had the blues

He felt his spirits rise-
The whistle blew.

And In a cell he lies.
There was a man from Morristown.

And ame be met thts oldish maid.

Now, as he swore devotion true.
He hiccoughMed, feeling scared-
She turned away.
She groaned, they say,
And soberly declared:
"Be still, my beating heart, be still.
And calmly let me choose.
For I stand twixtt love and duty-
Yes, I stand twixtt love and booze."
He fondly pressed her to him tight
And whispered: "Let us fly!"
So they ran away,
And were wed next day,
In a country not so dry.

The gross inequalities in transpor-
tation chaLrges as fruit and vegetable
shIpMnta from Florida are fully re-
cognIed by observing people through-
out the United States. As a sample
of the newspaper comments on this
subject, we quote the following from
the pen of Mr. E. W. Barber, the tal-
ented editor of the Jackson (Mich)
Morning Patriot. who has many times
during the past year earned the grat-
itude of Floridians for his kindly in-
lorida has always been handican-
ped by heavier rates to northern mar-
kets than are charged fro& other and
competing sections. This one thing
has retarded its growth and prosper-
ity. Even with partly water rates
nearly as much is charged to Atlantic
coast cities as from California. al-
though the latter is nearly 2000 miles
farther away.
It its said to cost from 75 to g0 cents
to shi a box of oranges from Florida
to New York, and 90 cents from any
point in California to the same city.
and fruit is shipped from Porto Rico
and Cuba at one-fourth the cost that
Florida growers have to pay.

This is made with corn meal and
salt and water. Make a thick batter
and bake it on a griddle. Shape it

This is simply corn bread made
stiff enough to mold into three oblong
loaves laid side by side in a baking
pan and baked to a rich brown.
Corn Bread
One quart of meal, one teaspoonful
of salt. one teaspoonful of sugar, one
'pint of milk, scalding hot. Beat until

cups of rice and cover with water.
Salt to taste, and put in a teaspoon
of curry powder and one bay leaf and
pinch of thyme or summer savory or

Fried Chicken
Rub the pieces of a young, tender
chicken with salt and pepper, then
flour generously. Put into a skillet a
large kitchen spoon of lard. Have it
very hot and put in the chicken and
keep on turning it, so as to cook it
thoroughly without letting it burn.
Wbm it is done remove the chicken
and put into the skillet a heaping
tablespoon of flour and rub it with the
back of the spoon until brown. Add a
cup of milk and a pinch of sugar, and
boil the gravy, adding salt and more
pepper if necessary. Serve always
with boiled rice or hominy.

As soon as the fish are given out
or bid fair to be exhausted by the de-
mand for them. the chief will organize
another fishing party.
In the relation of his solution, to a
News reporter this morning, there was
one thing which appealed to the latter
forcibly-the demand likely to exist
for the fish and the purpose of such
demand. Fish free of charge and to
be kept at the stockade and to be giv-
en away upon request might appeal to
the palate of the average Tampa rath-
er than to health precautionary meas-
ures, but Chief Barnard has given
thought to this possibility and has or-
dered the fishermen to secure very
small fish, anglers unsuitable to fry-
ing or broiling purposes.
The sanitary fishing brigade will
return tomorrow evening with their
catch. The catch will be on tap in
running water at the stockade Thurs-
day and thereafter.

"We expect," declared Chief of San-
itation Barnard this morning, "to have
all the wiggletails in Tampa devoured
by the fish we will place in the cis-
terns of this city within a very short
time. At the stockade we have 727
small perch and bream in a tank,
flushed continually with running wa-
"The stockade fishermen have made
good with a fine catch. Those desir-
ing fish can get them, and as a fur-
ther inducement toward the distribu-
tion of these small fishes, the sanitary
department will this week send a wag-
on, containing these fish, through the
city. The wagon will be equipped
with a ladder, so that the cisterns may
be reached the better.
"Everybody should take one or more
fishes. They are small, but they will
grow, and later they could be taken
from the cistern and eaten."

Editor Jordan of the Punta Gcrda
Herald is working overtime these
days on his friend Gilchrlst's candi-
dacy, and it is telling upon his nerves.
This is what he said this week:


The Tampa News of yesterday
says: Tampa is again to lead the
world in its novel solution of a prob-
lem and once again Chief of Sanita-
tion and General Health Calvin B.
Barnard is to show another streak of
thet enterprise for which he has been
noted since assuming office with the
Frecker administration.
Fish to the numbow of 1000 or more
are to be placed in cisterns through
Tampa, these to be used for the pur-
Ibse of capturing wiggletails, and pre-
venting, in this way. the annual vini-
tation of mosquitoes. Chief Barnard
has decided upon this measure of prc-
v tentative relief after consul-ation
with a number of authorities who
have seen such protective measures
tested and proven successful.
And, tomorrow morning, in a wag-
on with nets and other necessary ap-
purtenances, four men. W. W. Nowot-
ny and E. H. Hester, and two prison-
ers. will leave Tampa for the lakes
north of the city, where the day will
he spent in catching perch and bream.
All the fish caught will be placed in
a barrel or barrels, as necessity de-
mands, and the fish will be afforded
the delight of running water through
this barrel or barrels, holes to be
placed in each side of ,ach water re-

Another important enterprise prov
ing feasible by deep water and com-
ing in the wake of the recent an-
nouncement of the completion of the
twenty-four-foot channel in the Sr.
Johns from Jacksonville to the sea.
is the big phosphate shopping facili-
ties now in course of construction by
the W. W. Cummer Lumber Company
at Millville, just north of their im-
mense plant.
Work on this new enterprise has
actually started and a small army of
workmen is now engaged driving the
piling for the bulkhead upon which
will rest a large shed and warehouse.
There Is 1000 feet of bulkheading to
be done, and the contract for the work
has been let to R. T. Brown, a well
known contractor in that line.
The exporting of hard rock phos-
phate from Florida has almost entire-
ly passed through the ports of Savan-
nah, Fernandina and Port Tampa in
the past, and now, with the harbor im-
provement, it is reasonable that a
goodly portion of this business should
,pass through this port.
From all parts of the world will
doubtless come steamers to the Cuf-

I dream of an empire vast, sublimer
than Rome of old,
A giant to make the past seem petty
and poor and cold.
I see in the lengthening years the na-
tion's shadow grow,
O'erspreading the hemispheres, as
Freedom's sun sinks low.
The pulse of pri4e is filled at the
thought of the things to be,
And C('aesar's soul is filld with. a vis-
ion of Destiny.

The fetters are broken, made for us
by the fathers gon*-.
And Jefferson's gh spectre of Wa 7hinTon.
Now welcome the emnpire grand, ce-
mented in blood and might'
At last shall our country stand, eman-
cipated from right'
Farewell to the setting sun that rose
on the nations birth:
His pitiful race is run-our heritage
is the earth.

I dream of an empire var-t, divided
by robbers twain;
Yet oft I awake aghaw-t with a sting of
shame and pain.
For, what if a Judge there be of na-
tions as well as men.
And a real eternity with laws beyond
our ken?
'Tis sweeter to dream or drink, as the
joyous feast goes on;
For, should we awake and think, we
might thdnk of Babylon.
-James Jeffrey Roche.
