The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

The exterior portion of our govern-
ment building is now completed. It
cannot in justice be said to be a very
'ornamental, imposing nor massive
looking structure, but no building in
this section is more compactly and
substantially built. No part of the
work hPs been slighted nod overlook-
ed. Every piece of timber, every
piece of steel, every granite block,
and every article of every kind was
carefully examined before being ac-
cepted, and it can truthfully be said
to be a piece of finished workmanship.

dicate, and contains a story more

cluding the cellar, four stories in

The two upper floors will be used
for the United States court, the judge
of the same, the clerk of the court,
the marshal and the grand and petit
juries, United States commissioner
and other attaches.
There are ample hallways, lavato-
ries, bathrooms, etc. Steam pipes are
running through the entire building
and electrical appliances are attached
to every room. Throughout th- en-
tire building there has been an eye
for comfort and convenience.
The rooms set apart for the court
auditorium and the postoffice will be
finished in excellent shape and the
furnishings will be in general har-
mony with the building.
The lower floor is of reinforced
concrete and will be tiled, and the
building throughout will be very near-
ly fire proof. The flooring has been
tested, and it will hold up more
.eight than will ever be put on it.
The pillars are very massive and
the entire structure is as strong as
brick laid in cement, granite and
structural steel can make it and un-
iess some unforseen accident occurs

not last as long as the pyramids of
The grounds have been handsomely
laid off and contain many cement
walks and approaches. There will be
lawns, flowers and artificial fountains
which will make it an attractive ren-
dezvous, and it is destined to be
known as one of Ocala's beauty spots.
Capt. Young, the supervising archi-
tect, and Capt. Williams, the contrac-
tor and builder, have performed their
work in a most admirable manner,
and have given the people of Ocala a
building that they will feel proud of,
it matters not how many other build-
ings may be constructed in the future.

Mr. Charles H. Lloyd, who has trav-
eled in many parts of the state lately,
says that the Martel Lumber Com-
pany at Martel has the finest field
of corn he has seen growing in any
part of the state. On the contrary,
Mr. W\m. DeHon, an extremely mod-
est man. who has traveled over the
state quite extensively, says that
while good crops are seen in all parts
of south Florida, and the Martel Lum-
her Company has an excellent look-
ing field, he has no hesitation in say-
ing that his crop "tops" anything in
the state. We are glad that so many
good crops are reported, and we hope
that the gr 'wers will not forget to lay 1
by some of the choicest ears for ex-
hibit at our next Marion county fair.


The Rt. Rev. William Crane Gray,
D. D., bishop of southern Florida,
stopped over in Ocala Sunday on his
way to Sewannee, Tenn., for a visit.
At the eleven o'clock- service at
Grace church Sunday morning, Bishop
Gray preached a splendid sermon to
a large congregation, and after the
sermon he administered the rites of
confirmation, a class of eight being
confirmed on this occasion. Those
confirmed were Mr. Harry B. Clarkson
and his son, Robert Clarkson, Mr.
Claude Nelson, Paul Weathers, Wil-
liam Anderson, Misses Dorothy
Schreiber, Rosebud Robinson and
Mr. Gray took his text from the
fourteenth chapter of Exodus, as fol-
lows: "Speak unto the children of Is-
rael, that they go forward." He
preached most excellently, the princi-
pal thought of his sermon being a
plea for one great Catholic church,
not an Episcopal, Methodist, Presby-
terian nor any other one church, but
the Great Church of God in America.
He quoted instances -of the great
preachers and bishops of this country
and of other countries who are labor-
ing so earnestly for this happy con-
summation of God's church, and he
read a letter from a Roman Catholic
priest, who has recently been receiv-
ed into the Episcopal branch of the
church, along these same lines.
Bishop Gray said that the admoni-
tion of the text to "go forward," did
not mean only for the priests and
bishops to speak to the laymen in
order that they might go forward, but
that it was likewise a command for
the laymen to so live their faith that
others might profit from their lives
and go forward to the great consum-
mation of one great church.
After the bishop's sermon, Mr. Ed-
ward Drake sang splendidly a lovely
Following the confirmation the holy
communion was administered.

The sweet, appealing faces of beau-

noon was over.
There ,were babies in carriages, ba-
bies in groups and clusters, babies in
bevies and companies and battalions,
and all were as handsome and lovely
as little tots can be. There were tiny
infants, blushmgly unassuming, ba-
bies of a year of age or more and ba-
bies big and beautiful in the full vigor
of infancy.

June weddings. The most interesting
feature of it for Jacksonville people
Is that Mr. Metcalf and his very
charming bride will make their bome
here.-Jacksonville Metropolis.
The above pleasing announcement
is read with much interest here,
where the young bride's family is so
well known. The Wright family lived
here and at Lake Weir some years
before going to Jacksonville to reside,
and later to New York. Mrs. Wright
was born in this city and grew to
young womanhood here. She is a sis-
ter of Judge W. S. Bullock and Mr. R.
B. Bullock. and Mr. Wright is a broth-
er of Mrs. R. B. Bullock.
The young groom-elect is also well
known in Ocala, having lived here for
some years when he was a young boy.
He has done wonderfully well in Jack-
sonville. and is now half owner of
the Emery Shoe Company. which he
recently purchased.


Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Fennell of
Gainesville have recently announced

He is also a musician, has a wonder-

Editor Harris of the Ocala Banner
is advocating the purchase of gondo-

many is not stated. Gondolas are ex-
pensive affairs, and Marion county,
with many improvements in view,
should not be urged into too heavy
expense for these purely sentimental
means of water locomotion. Instead
we would commend the plan of the
New York alderman. Perhaps Editor
Harris knows the story. It's old-a

The printing of sensational and
highly decorated murder and divorce
stories is not the only way in which
incautious newspapers,, may mislead
the youth of the land and corrupt the
public taste. A soulful little thing
like this from the Sylvania (Ga.) Tel-
ephone, which the New York World
reproduces on its editorial page, may
do more harm than the goriest and
raciest of sensational news:
"If you like music and pretty pic-
tures, you can have them at your
will by getting up early on the farm
and listening to the songs of the birds
and all the signs and sounds of na-
ture's resurrection. You can hear the
chickens, the cows and the hogs-
the neighing horses as the farmer
comes with their feed. You can hear
the voices at the lot-as the boys or
the hired hands draw water for the
stock and make ready for the day.
Then, as the first long, golden lance
of light strikes down across the silent
fields, you can see all the life and
bustle of another opening day. And
all of it is sweet and bringeth peace
and Joy-as we find out sometimes
when we have left it and pine for it
We know a man who was "raised"
on the farm, and his recollections of
it are very tender. He remembers a
typical morning in the springtime. He
arose with the dawn-it was his bus-
iness to do so-and he lit a candle,
having shivered five minutes before
he could find a match. Then he
went out to the horse-lot "to feed." It

trees were dripping and the thermom-

of the "hired hands," it was to go

Ia Joseph R. Parrott, the single-

of Florida, writes Ralph D. Payne, in
Recreation for June. Parrott rowed
four years on the Yale crew in the
eighties and swears to this day that
the experience was an invaluable ed-
ucation in itself. He has spent
thirty million dollars of Mr. Flagler's
money in building a railroad from
Jacksonville 'to Key West and in
creating a magnificent system of win-

wrought with no more oversight than

The state senate's appropriation of
$50,000 from the convict lease fund

for the purchase of a prison farm for
women and infirm convicts, is a step
in the right direction.
One step is not enough, and it may
be slow going, but we are glad for
that much progress.
It will be observed that this appro-
priation does not come out of the peo-
ple. It is convict money. In other
words, the convict must earn his own
betterment. The legislature simply
says he may do so.
Until the thing is finally accomplish-
ed, if the people will not abandon the
lease system and provide properly for
the state's convicts, then at least ev.
ery dollar he earns ought to go to that

Even the vilest of convict lease ad-
vocates should not object to that.-

mount to saying that the Ocala board
of trade does not believe that the
"Sunny Jim" trains are going to meet
all the needs of Ocala and make her
a great city-building it up and mak-
ing it great by taking trade away
from ler.

Mr. James Reed, who, in years
gone by, lived in Ocala. and still
owns property here, was a visitor yes-
terday. He now resides in New Or-
leans, and says that it now numbers
a population of 400,000, and contin-
ues to grow. The construction of the
Panama canal and the conditions of
the country generally promise quick-
er and still greater growth for the
Crescent City, and the man who hails
from New Orleans is loyal enough to
believe that there is no other city in
the universe quite its equal.

Chairman Meffert of the street com-
mittee informed the editor of this pa-
per that whenever it fails to rain and
the dust becomes troublesome the
street sprinkler shall be out and stay
out all day, sprinkling the streets,
and that no favoritism will be shown.
He also says that a street sweeper
has been ordered that the dust ques-
tion has got to be solved and solved
right if street sprinklers and sweep-
ers will do it. Good news, and score
one for Alderman Meffert.

Miss Laura Sewell, who has been
taking a holiday at her old home in
Brooksville, will soon return to Ocala
and assume charge of Mrs. Minnie
Bostick's millinery parlors, and Mrs.
Bostick will take her annual outing,
and will visit New York, Boston and
other cities, studying the very latest
creations in millinery styles, so as
to give her patrons the benefit of her
observations. Mrs. Bostick will Icave
Ocala about July 1st.

Mrs. Cole, Mrs. Standley, Miss Nel-
lie Stevens and Miss Carrie Pelot

one of the finest that has ever been
rendered. The visiting delegates

From Thursday's Daily:

This paper welcomes the State Den-
tal Association to Ocala. It is said
that ohce upon a time at a meeting of
a certain association, in recounting
the various blessings that had befal-
len the members, and for which they
were particularly thankful, an old wo-
man arose and said that she had but
two teeth, but was thankful that
those two met. Only the toothless
can enter into the full significance of
this old lady's blessings.
The dentists have distributed bless-
ings more abundantly, perhaps, than
any of the other professions, for they
have made it possible for none of us
to go toothless, and good teeth have
gotten to be synonymous with good
The science of dentistry has made
as many forward strides as any of
the professions and the dentist's chair
is 4o longer pictured on our brain as
one or horror, and the more recent
discoveries in this line of endeavor
combined with the skill and delicate
touch of the operator have made the
visits to the dentists one of pleasure
Indeed, dentistry has made most
marvelous progress, and we hope it
will reach such a state of perfection
that such a thing as an unsound t(oth
will be reckoned as the exception and
not the rule.
We hang our latchstrings on the
outside and hope the stay of the den-
tists with us will be both pleasant and


The Ocala Boys Got Themselves To-
gether Yesterday and Won From
Sanford by Score of 4 to 3
Sanford, Fla., June 16, 1909.
Special to Ocala Banner:
In the last of a series of three
games with Sanford Ocala won today
by score of 4 to 3. It was a hard
fought game, Ocala not being able to
make a score until the seventh inning,
and then piled up enough to win out.
Pelot and Waller composed the bat-
tery. A. Frank is on deck and doesn't
fall to whoop 'em up for Ocala.

The editor of this paper enjoyed a
very pleasant auto ride with Mayor
John D. Robertson yesterday to Sil-
ver Springs, in company with Dr.
Kemp of Key West and Dr. Jewett
of Atlanta. The air was prime, the
road fairly good and the drive was
much enjoyed. We went out on the
bosom of the springs in a glass-bottom
boat. and enjoyed its scintillating
beauties, and as one never tires gaz-
ing into its depths, the saying of
Keats' always occurs to us, that "a
thing of beauty is a joy forever." The
Fort King Sunday school was holding
a picnic there, and the boys and girls
were having a "good time." Some
were in swimming and others were in
boats, floating smoothly over its bos-
om, thinking the same thoughts and
telling the same stories that have
been told and re-told by lovers in all
ages. Just as we were leaving the
chaperones were opening many it.vit-
ing-looking baskets, and we know that
there were other enjoyments besides
the mythical lore of love. Silver
Springs will ever be an aid to Dan
Cupid in his pleasant pastime of
shooting arrows in such a way as to
make "love's young dream" a reality.

Belleview must be a very great city.
Colonel Edwin 'Spencer, the oldest
practitioner at the Ocala bar, moved

down there a few months ago, and
has thus early developed into a first
class farmer. He has succeeded ad-
mirably, and there is nothing on a
farm that be has not grown sucecss-
fully. Then, too, there is Mr. Chas.
O'Malley Foy, the poet laureate of the
Ocala Banner, has gone there, to pur-
sue the happy avocation of life on the
farm, and we expect as good reports
of him as have crowned the efforts
of the barrister.

Mr. Clarence J. Smith of Weir Park
has gone to Tryon, N. C., to spend the
summer. Mrs. Smith will accompany
him. It will be regretful news to his
friends to know that he has been sick
for some time.

"The Underselling Store of Ocala"


The editor of this paper enjoyed a
most delightful automobile trip as far
out as the Martel Lumber Company
Tuesday morning as the guest of Mr.
Gordon S. Scott in his new Jackson
touring car. His other guests were
Dr. and Mrs. E. C. Kemp of Key West,
the former of whom is a member of
the State Dental Examiners.
The Jackson is a fine machine and
speeds along as smoothly as a Pull-
man parlor car. The morning was de-
lightful, as the atmosphere had been
cooled off by the splnedid rain of the
night before.
The auto is the thing for luxurious
comfort and we envy those who are

or other matter of similar nature is

paper that no paid political article or

WhmIes the earmarks were so plain
that a label was not necessary. We
think, therefore, that the provisions
of the bill,. so far as they affect polit-
teal pbueatlonsm are good, and they
ought to be practiced by every news-
awer whether required to do so by

The Ocala Banner does not make
any pretentious to more virtue nor
more wickedness than its contempor-
aries, but it has never seen the day
when it thought it necessary to "tag"
its articles, and it has been Born and
bred In too high a mold to have seen
a day that it has not felt like resent-
lNg as an insult an inmelsetion to do

In the primary campaigns this pa-
per stated in the outset that all arti-
cles, except the editorial utterances
of the editor, would be charged for at
so much per line. So it was under-
stood by its readers that all articles
bearing upon the questions at issue
were furnished by the parties inter-
ested, and in no sense reflected the
sentiments of this paper.
So when the laudatory articles were
sent out from the bureaus of the va-
rious candidates telling what great
men the candidates were it was done
in recognition of this rule.
When was it that a miller was not
allowed to charge his toll? And when
was it that in doing so he was looked
upon with suspicion?
It is a time-honored custom, not
more honored in the breach than in

the observance.
All the grist passing through the
Ocala Banner hopper, whether for
Gilchrist. Stockton or Broward. the
customary toll was charged. Our
readers so understood it. There was
not a particle of deception about it.
Indeed, we had to do it in very self-de-
fense, else we should have had ma-
terial enough to have kept a dozen
presses busy, and itf we had made dis-
criminations by printing some man-
uscripts and rejecting others we
would have had troubles, like the sins
of Cain, "greater than we could bear."
The pot metal that threw a halo of
greatness over Mr. R. Hudson Burr,
dazzling in grandeur the toga of a Ro-
man. senator, although untagged, did
not escape the fixed penalties, and
this extraordinary conversion of the
raw material into the finished product
was done for a stipulated sum in cold
if it be a sin to manufacture states-
men out of very raw material, griev-
ously has this paper suffered for it.
But retracing its steps to the orig-
inal proposition: This paper resents
being tagged. If it prints a cartoon
of a horse it does not feel that the
intelligence of its readers require
that it shall bear the tag. "This is a
horse!. "
And it feels, too, that its readers.
or perhaps the most of them, are edu-
cated up to the point so that they can
distinguish between the genuine ring
of an* editorial production and the
captivating, oily nothingness of a pat-
ent medicine advertisement.
This paper believes, and shall con-
tinue to believe in the old doctrine of
a free and unshackled press. It be-
lieves that liberty is menaced when-
ever the liberty of the press is sought
to be circumscribed or hampered in
any way.
History states that "liberty shriek-
ed when Kosciusco fell!"
It will soon be stated. we fear, that
poor liberty will weep until her eyes
are sore whenever a state legislature
Good old Horace Greeley was zight

Pastor Russell's sermons, now a
Monday feature of the Jacksonville

example of the kind of "news matter"
that will have to be labeled "advertis-
ing" in the event that Gov. Gilchrist
approves the "act regulating the pub-
lication in newspapers of articles,
either as news matter, or as editorial,

Governor Gilchrist promptly vetoed
the bill regulating the newspapers
published in this state, as his friends
were confident that he would do. We
have entirely too much sumtuary
legislation in these latter years, and
too mucb interference in the conduct
of one's affairs. We are governed en-
tirely too much and we have too
many little people in big places. The
freedom of speech and the freedom of
the press was the proud boast of the
founders of this government, and
when once you begin "regulating" the
press this freedom will be abridged
and finally destroyed. The largest
liberty should be accorded to the
press and no right under this govern-
ment should be more sacred and more
sedulously guarded. We certainly
congratulate the governor in giving
this law a black eye and all other
laws of this nature. There is some-
thing rotten somewhere when so
much government is required. Too
much government will breed sympa-
thy for the Emma Goldman class of
In this connection we hope that we
shall be allowed to print a paragraph
from the commencement address of
Colonel George Harvey, editor of
Harper's Weekly, at the University of
Kansas. He said:
"If tomorrow this nation should be
obliterated, if the earth itself should
be destroyed, the greatest glory of
any people would be left in these im-
perishable words:
"'Congress shall make no law re-
specting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise there-
of: or abridging the freedom of
speech or of the press; or the right
of the people peaceably to assemble,
and to petition the government for a
redress of grievances.'
"There was the crux of human lib-
erty, there shone the noonday sun
from whose face the clouds of the
middle ages had been swept away,

them a veritable object lesson of how
they are going to build up trade in
having excursion trains leave Ocala
daily for Tampa in one direction and

scheme. Ocala ought, indeed, erect
a monument to some one.

It will be sad news to the people of
this state to learn that Mr. Walter
M. Davis, son of ex-Congressman Da-
vis, is dead. He died in Palatka at
the home of his sister as a result of
an illness brought on by a nervous
breakdown. He was only 35 years of
age, and had already achieved distinc-
tion. His death is greatly lamented.

bottom. It would give every individ-
ual an equal chance in the struggle
for existence and would then pro-
nounce this sentence upon them:
"Root hog or die." It would not en-
rich the few at the expense of the
many. But that is neither here nor
there. Free trade is not now before
the country. The theory of the re-
publican party is "a tariff for protec-
tion to American industries: the
democratic theory is "a tariff for rev-
enue only."
In levying this tariff the republican
party is careful to levy it only on in-
dustries north of the Potomac river,
anm even limiting it as a rule to the
industries of the New England and
North Atlantic states.
It does seem, however, that if the
republican party is going to pose as
a national party it would remove the
onus of sectionalism from the tariff
schedules; but to have them do so
we would not abandon the creed of
our own party, fly the caucus and
join with them in riveting these fet-
ters around the wrists of the great
masses of our population, when in
being true to the party creed and
obeying the caucus the schedules as
proposed under the Aldrich bill could
lie defeated.

To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Ocala, Fla., June 15, 19.
I certainly appreciate and heartily
endorse the editorials appearing in
the Banner during the past few days.
but I do not exactly understand your
statement that while Kenatcky had
four republican congressnnm who vo-
ted with the republicans, Florida had
four who were elected as democrats
who voted with the republicans. Why
did you not let Florida go Kentacky
one better, and truthfully say that
Florida had five cong en voting
with the republicans in favor of the
lumber trust?

can we do? I voted for and did some
work for Senator Fletcher. I thought
he was the ablest of the candidates In
the race. He professed in his speech-
es that he was a democrat; that the
Denver platform was all right, and on
the faith that he was telling the truth.
I voted for him in the primary; and
as to Sparkman, he had no opposition.
so I am guilty of voting for him also.
Neither am I innocent in the election
of Tallaferro, but I have a little crumb
of comfort in being able to say that I
had nothing to do with the election of
Frank Clark.

Editor News-Recod: I should like
to ask for the benefit of the people of
Florida and for the future generations,

why it is that the capital of a geat
state like this should remain in 'ob-
scurity? We all have the proper. re-
spect for old Tallahassee and her no-
ble people, but sentiment must be left
out when the interests of three quar-
ters of the population of our state
would be benefited by changing our
state-capital to some point more ap-
propriate, geographically, for the
great masses of the people. .
In territorial days, Tanahassee was
a very proper place for the seat of
government, but after the subjugation
and expulsion of the red man in the
fifties, almost all of south Florida was
freed from savage rule and opened up
to settlement; and today is actually
settled by the very best people, rep-
resenting every satte and almost ev-
ery county in the United States, thus
changing, geographically and other-
wise, the entire nature of south and
east Florida.
For the good of her citizens a
change of the seat of government is
The time has come for capital re-
I realize that such sentiment will
meet with some opposition, but be this
as it may. I speak from a spirit of
fairness and honesty, and believe that
every fair-minded citizen in Florida,
east, west and south, will agree with
me, when he has deliberately consid-
ered the situation.
I was reared in Florida, and have
contributed my little to the upbuild-
ing of this great commonwealth, ana
I see now the necessity of changing
with thousands of others, that the
growing city of Jacksonville is the
most central point for Florida's capi-
tal from every social and -business
From time to time through the piess
of the state I propose to try and show
the people of my state why the state
capital should be removed-and re-
moved to Jacksonville.
The great money saving to the peo-
ple will warrant many times a remov-

I should like to know the sentiment
of all Florida on this question, for I
intend 'to keep on stirring with this
end in view.-C. M. Brown, Sr., in Mi-
ami News-Record.

came a member of the assembly and
spoke creditably against the execu-
tion of Louis XVI.. but the excitement
of the terror was too much for his ea-
ger brain. Gouverneur Morris thought
that he had become deranged, as has
happened to many eminent men. He
was imprisoned by Robespierre.
If Paine had died in 1790 his ser-
vices to American freedom would
have been more generally and grate-
fully recognized by posterity. "The
Rights of Man" in 1792 won him pros-
cription in England, where he was
born; and later "The Age of Reason"
aroused bitter religious prejudices in
America. It became the custom to
speak of him as merely a scoffer and
railer. Theodore Roosevelt, with as
little accuracy as charity, has de-
scribed his as a "filthy little atheist."
But Paine himself said: "I believe in
one God and no more. and I hope for
happiness beyond this life." Nowa-
days he would be a Unitarian in good
But he was a patriot before he be-
came a religious controversialist.
The republic owes so much to him

continue doing less than justice to the
memory and the political services of
Thomas Paine.-World.

Now that the legislative session of
1909 is a matter of history, It is
doubtless in order for all Floridians
to praise or censure our recent law-
making body, as one may deem prop-
When Speaker Farris called the
house of representatives to order on
April 6tlh the personnel of that as-
sembly was such as to lead the peo-
ple to believe that much useful and
needed legislation would result from
the session. And surely never had
the public better grounds to ba-e such
a belief, for on that roll were found
the names of the foremost and most
conservative public men of the state
-men representing almost every in-
terest, profession, calling and occupa-
tion; citizens whose reputation for
honesty, sobriety and ability was
vouched for by their respective com-
munities, and whose knowledge of the
wants and requirements of the state
in general and of their home counties
in particular admitted of no doubt.
So the public had every reason to an-
ticipate great things from such a
Unfortunately for the masses, how-
ever, a majority of the representa-
tives seemed to have had an erron-
eous conception of their official du-
ties and of what was really expected

of them. They were doubtless sin-
cere in their positions, but as ignor-
ance is not excusable in certain in-
stances, the misguided ones must not
expect other than condemnation for
such unwonted conduct, as but for
their actions much good would have
been accomplished.
Many of the members belonged to
that class commonly known as "re-
formers." They were as a unit in
agreeing that reform was necessary,
but as to the nature of the evils to
be corrected and the manner of pro-
cedure in the premises, they were of
various minds. Nearly every first-
term man had "his own special no-
tion" about legislation, and thought it
his sacred obligation to express his
opinion and to display his learned
brilliance through language burning
with fiery eloquence. In this wise,
hours and even days were wasted in
harmful wrangling and uselss debate.
It was all well enough for the indi-
vidual to thus play to the gallery and
gain notoriety, but it was extremely
costly to the state, and inimical to the
interests of certain legislation so
greatly needed and so generally de-
manded. If the time whiled away in
worthless discussions had been given
more wisely and devoted to less sel-
fish ends, more and better measures
would have been enacted, and the cal-
endar would never have been allowed
to become so congested as to pre-
clude all possibility of clearing its
many pages.
What we have said of the house
may be likewise applied to the sen-
ate. Similar conditions existed-a
laxity of idle talk and a constipation
of real labor. The legislative sins of
commission and omission may be
summarized in brief: Too much fine
politics and "grand-stand playing."
and insufficient attention to needed
legislation.-Palatka Herald.

There are four great words which
should be written upon the four cor-
ner stones of every public building in
this land, with the sacredness of a re-
ligious rite. These watchwords of
the republic are: Equality, Simplicity,
Economy and Justice. They are in-
terwoven with every fibre of the na-
tional fabric. To forget or deny them
will lead to every misfortune and ev-
ery possibility of destruction that ris-
es now threateningly in the path of
our country's greatness.
* *
Last and noblest conception of all
born from the associated life of man-
kind is justice. The nation must be
true to that abstract and impartial
justice which is the fountain of nobil-
ity, the patent of heroes and the final
test of any state. Upon occasion the
law-making power has been invoked
not to punish guilt, but to give one
man an unfair advantage at the cost
of another; to confiscate wholly or in
part property honestly earned and
fairly used; to distinguish between ac-
tivities by discriminating laws. The
tendency is by no means universal,
but its presence is palpable and too
dangerous to be ignored. If hatred,
greed or envy instead of justice ever
becomes a formative power in public
affairs, then, no matter who may be
the victim, the act is treason. For
no state ever enjoyed tranquility or
escaped destruction if it ceased to
maintain one equal and inflexible
standard ,tf justice. The greatest ser-
vice to the nation, to every state and
city today would be the substitution
for a term of years of law enforce-
ment for law making. Get the laws
fairly tried, weed out those improper
or impracticable, curtail the contempt
of law that flourishes under the
American system of noti-enforcement
and make the people understand that
government means exact and unspar-
ing justice, instead of a complex
game. This is the only safeguard if
respect for and confidence in the gov.
earning system itself are not to be
gradually undermined.

We have complicated our educa-
tional system and made it superficial.
The just complaint everywhere is that
there is no thoroughness, no whole-
some mental discipline for the young.
We have complicated our social life
until natural human intercourse is
overlaid with a thick stratum of vul-
gar prodigality, luxury, display and in-
We have complicated our law-mak-
ing until, until despite the high stand-1
ards, the unimpaired traditions and'
the continual labors of the courts,, the
administration of justice is difficult
and sometimes uncertain.
We have complicated our financial
system until it encourages the wildest
speculations at one moment and at
another sinks into business collapse.
We have complicated our industrial
organization at both ends of the scale
until the great middle class, which
represents labor uncombined, a fine
energy and modest accumulations of
capital, finds many of its rights avad-
ed or destroyed.
And we complicate all these compli-

where there is red clay sub-soil, a fer-
UlWer analyzing 5 per cent. phos-
phorle add, 3 per cent nitrogen and
4 per cent. potash should be used, and
where the soil is very sandy a 7 3-5
brand would perhaps suit better and
give more m-tisfwatory results. The
83-2-2 goods so common on the market
is not a well balanced plant food for
any crop on the farm, as it is defi-
clent in two important elements, ni-
trogen and potash and excessive in
phoaphoric acid. A fertilizer with 6
per cent. to 7 per bent. phosphoric
add, 3 per cent. to 4 per cent. nitro-
gen, and 5 per cent. potasL comes
nearer a well balanced plant ration
for this crop than any other combina-
tion I know of.
The variety of corn will cut quite
an important figure also. The large
cob and thick long-stalked variety
will want liberal phosphoric acid ap-
plication and the large leaved and
short-stalked varieties will want more
nitrogen in proportion than the oth-
er two, but all the varieties will want
liberal allowances of potash, because
this is the element that makes or
mars the crop. Without a sufficient
amount of potash in the fertilizer to
fnish off what the other elements
have succeeded in producing, the
crop is apt to be a future.
A brand with the foregoing analy-
sis cannot be had in the open mar-
ket, but the farmer can compound it
to suit himself by buying the raw ma-
terials and doing his own mixing. To
get a 3 5-7 goods he would require to
get 800 pounds of high grade cotton
seed meal, 200 pounds muriate of pot-
ash and 1000 pounds 14 per cent.
phosphate. An application of 600 to
800 pounds per acre broadcast and
worked into the soil a few days be-
fore planting will give good results if
after cultivation is shallow and fre-
quent so as to keep grass and weeds
under control and preserve the mois-
ture In the soil. On the combination
of the proper brand of fertilizer and
the Judicious and timely cultivation
of the crop depend the success or
non-ucecess of the crop, but the born
crop being one of the most important
crops any farmer grows, particular
attention to these essentials is abso-
lutely necessary if he is going to
come out ahead at harvest time.
I ought to say something regarding
varieties of corn, but lack of s pace
prevents me at this time. I will, how-
ever, say this much in closing: Al-
ways plant a variety that is suitable
to your soil and climate, and always
grade up so as to improve the Feel
year after year. Every farmer ought
to grow a seed patch where be can
cull out the unsuitable ears and
stalks and grow nothing but that is
A-1, and it is along these lines in con-
junction with the proper brands of
fertilizer that we may expect to in-
crease our average per acre from a
miserable eight bushels to four or
five times that amount..

An interesting phase of agricultural
development in Texas is emphasized
in the following dispatch from New
"The rich soil and warm sun of
Texas have conspired to put the fa-
mous onion-growing industry of Ber-
muda out of business. Sixty Portu-
gese and forty native Bermudians
have arrived here from Bermuda to
find employment. All of them had
owned onion farms in Bermuda until
it was discovered that Texas could
grow larger, earlier and more lus-
cious onions than can be raised in
the Bermudas. A majority of the
new-comers will seek agricultural
openings in the west."

If these
and are not

statements are accurate
set afloat for the purpose

of influencing tariff legislation at
Washington, they reveal a situation
in Bermuda that has developed with-
in less than ten years. George Copp,
an Englishman, probably familiar
with the raising of Spanish onions in
the Bermuda Islands, began the cul-
ture of them in 1900 in an experimen-
tal way at Cotulla, Texas; but, though
the experiment was a success, it was
not until 1903 that 100 carloads were
shipped to market. The Texas pro-
duct immediately found favor, and
the shipments had Increased to 600
carloads in 1905. The next year 1000
carloads were shipped, and by 1908
the shipments had expanded to 2400
carloads, and the Southern Texas
Truck Growers' Association, compos-
ed of 500 onion-growers, has in a cou-
ple of years' life demonstrated the
value of organization in handling the
product for market. The Bermuda
onions are raised in other parts of
the country to a comparatively small
extent, but those of Texas dominate
the markets, were they make their
first appearance usually at some time
between the first of March and the
last of that mouth. They are market-
ed in practically every part of the
United States, and they even go into
Canada, and the annual value is
about $1,000,000. They are raised
from seed Imported from the Canary
Islands, and this year 1400 pounds of
seed were purchased by the Texas
association. Laredo is the largest
shipping point for the onions, but
they are grown in considerable quan-


They used to spell it with an "e,"
but political dual practices are be.
coming as common in the south as in
the times of Jackson and Benton. The
facilities are not as yet as as
when the thing was done with pistols
rather than with votes, platforms
and speeches, but the victims may
possibly be bleeding inwardly. Time
and election will tell.
Let us consider the interesting case
in dual personality of Senator F. M.
Simmons, whose address is R. F. D.
Trenton, S. C. Mr. Simmons, on or-
dinary occasions is a Dr. Jekyll dem-
ocrat, whose realization of the iniqui-
ties of the tariff is keen and sharp.
He is so well grounded in orthodox
views that last summer at Denver he
served on the committee on resolu-
tions which declared for a revenue
tariff and especially for free lumber.
He made no minority report. He was
willing to go before the nation on
free lumber and did his best to put
Mr. Bryan in office pledged to it.
But there is a prdoectionist mental
complex in the senator's brain-one
of those Mr. Hyde streaks, which
give certain democrats so much trou-
ble. Ordinarily he has it under con-
trol. He had it cowed to supineness
last summer at Denver when he re-
ported the free lumber plank. But
sometimes it gets the strangle-hold oe
the normal Simmons and throws him.
No one can tell what it is thA some.
times gives the Mr. Hyde personality
the power to triumph over the Dr.
Jekyll character, but in the sad case
of Senator Simmons it is supposed to
be the odor of turpentine from the
pine forests of his state, or some ef-
fluvium emanating from Senator Al-
drich's finance committee.
Whatever it was, it played havoc
with the continuity of the Simmoms
purposes and views. The Hyde 81im-
mons threw the Jekyll Simmons out
of the senate window the other day,
took the floor and spoke for a duty
on lumber.
Of course, the senator is to be pit-
led for his infirmity, rather than blam-
ed for perfidy or inconsistency. He
has the disease of discotienuoou alter.
eating or multiple personalty. What


that when Mr. Aldrich or Mr. Cannon
makes the proper passes before the
eyes of the democratic "sensitives."
they go into trances and line up with
forces which would have excited
their horror and detewtation at Den-
ver. A very interesting prenmmenm
is psychology and politics.-Senator

No matter whai the import of a bill
may be. there are always two sides
to the question, and the poor servant
of the people is obliged to make one-
mies whether he supports a bill or
votes against it.
And thus the same old game is llay-
ed every two years.
The present legislature is no better
and no worse than the members of
the previous years. If they have dal-
lied with the time and have turned
back th" hands of the clock, if they
have tooled the public with freak
bills, and wasted the substance of
the tax payers, they have done no
more nor no less than the great
statesmen that have gone before.
What would you?
They have sixty days in which the
calendar is full of bills, good. bad and
indifferent. enough bills, in fact. to
take up twice sixty (lays.. About two
hundred hamlets, towns and cities
have hills to pass regarding the char-
ters and other municipal affairs'with
which the legislature has nothing to
do and know nothing about. They,
reectiv five hundred letters a day
from each aforesaid hamlet. town and
city in which the citizens take sides.
and state their ideas pro and con.
The public servant cannot s( rve
two masters. and torn between con-
flicting emotions and burning with a
desire to do his duty, signs a bill, the
relative merits of which he is as fa-
miliar as the inhabitants of Mars. and
then awaits the deluge.
He gets the deluge all right.
The last week of the session ap-
proaches and the calendar is as full
of these bills as ever. Night sessions
are in order and the public servant
burns the midnight oil on the hog
question, the charter bill. the whis-
key question, the gopher question;
the fishes of the sea and the bir'ls of
the air, the alligators, the school
book. horse racing and minor bills.
Then the very important bills are up)
for consideration as to whether a
newspaper man can ride on a pass or
ride the bumpers, as to whether an
editor can put a local notice in the
paper without a tag or not, as to
whether an editor has a right to live
or not. and whether an editor has a
right to publish a paper in Florida
or not.
All these important bills confront
the public servant at the last moment,
and when finally, the clock having
been turned back so far that the
hands break. Claude L'Engle has been
put out for the last time, Speaker
Farris turns the last somersault,
President Hudson receives the last
silver service, and Jeems Alexander
takes off the boxing gloves, and the
session adjourns sine die.

It's lit- oid. ,(ld story. Every pa-

"cussin" the legislature since its ad-
journment. In some respects the leg-

commended,. at least, for adjourning,

limit Lad been reached, an extra ses-

One of the largest sharks caught
in these waters recently was the one
landed at Boca Grande on May 17th.
It was of the hammerhead variety and
measured 14 1-2 feet. Messrs. Lester
Fox. Chas. Johnson, Hyde Grafford
and Fertiz share equally in the honor
of having lured the monster fish to
his death. Some thirty people, how-
ever, expended their energies in the
effort to land him. which was success-
ful only after the shark had been
gaffed and assistance rendered by
nearby boats. The estimated weight
of the fish was 1400 pounds.-Punta

At the time Addison was at the
height of his fame and was printing
the Spectator, woman's dress was as
much the subject of cartoon and com-
ment as it is today. At that particular
period women wore all sorts of gay-
colored hoods of picturesque and fan-
tastic shapes, which vexed the male
fashion writer as much so as the peach
basket hat of our times. Advertise-

that "manners, not dress, are the or-

Senator Root, formerly secretary of
state under President Roosevelt, in a
speech before the senate on May 24th,
"Mr. President. before the senate
disposes of the paragraph providing
for a differential upon dressed lumber,
I wish to ask that consideration be
given to a great number of establish-
ments and employes who are engaged
in the planing and dressing of lumber-
along the American side of the water
boundary between the United States
and Canada. Early in the history of
the building of the dwellings for our
people all along the pathway of emi-
gration to the west. there grew up
along the southern borders of the
Lakes a chain of lumber yards and
lumber-dressing establishments to sup-
ply the wants of the movnig and
growing communities."

Thbe Tampa Times has one sympa-
thizer in the pIerson of Theodore
Roosevelt, who, in the columus of The
Outlook, proclaims that that grand
old moral hero, Leo Tolstoi, is a "per-
vert." There were those living about
the year thirty-three of the Christian
era who declared that the Divine Mas-
ter should rank in the same class; for
the expression employed by them,
"He hath a devil," meant precisely
what Roosevelt said with respect to
Tolstoi. But the erratic lion slayer
let the cat out of the bag when he
predicated his conclusion upon Tol-
stoi's letter favoring Bryan's election
during the recent campaign.-Pensa-

The avocado, or alligator pear, is
thriving well in its new surroundings
on American soil. It is a tropical sal-
ad fruit, eaten like the cantaloupe. It
grows luxuriantly on the Isthmus of
Panama, and the canal diggers regard
it as more than a substitute for the
Rocky Ford. The trees planted in
Florida have 'thrived, and alligator
pear growing promises to become a
profitable business. The taste for it
needs a little cultivation, but all con-
noisseurs agree that it amkes a de-
lectable dish. There is a vast profit
in its production, a single tree pro-
ducing from ten to sixty pears, w*;ii
prices as high as three dollars a doz-
en.-Frederic J. Haskin.

ined he was cut out for an opponent
of Hon. Frank Clark in next year's
primaries, admitted on the floor of the

been approached with money enough
to pay his expenses in his campaign if

track here for $1344. The fruit was
ripe and fully ready to ship and was
of exceptionally good quality. The

J. G. Lege, the commission m.'n of

farm's output. Shipments are also
being made from Sparr, Anthony,
Oak, Martin, Lowell and Reddick.
"The growers this year are taking
extra pains with the packing of the
fruit, and the melons are running to
nice sizes. The first prices started
in at good figures, ranging from $1.50
to $2; but the last of the shipments
of this week were at $1.25 and $1.50.

Mr. Sam Pyles, formerly with
Messrs. Mclver & MacKay in their
undertaking department, and who
went to Augusta, Ga., several weeks
ago to take a course in embalming
under W. Edward Platt, received his
diploma this week, making an aver-
age in all of his studies of 97 per
cent. Mr. Pyles, before going to this
school, had been receiving instruc-
tions from Mr. Alf Owens, in charge
of the undertaking department at
Messrs. Mclver & MacKay's, and this,
with hard study at home, enabled the
young man to finish the course in a
short time. Dr. Platt compliments
"Sam" very highly on his work and
has offered him a position in Augus-
ta in his undertaking parlors at a
splendid salary. This will be good
news to the many friends of this wor-
thy young man and all wish him abun-
dant success in his chosen profession.

We have received copies of the
Troy (N. Y.) Record, which gives in
very elaborate details an account of
the commencement of the Emma Wil-
lard College in that city, and from
which college two lovely Ocala girls,
-Janet Ferguson Weathers and Lil-
lian Lee Anderson-were graduates.
In the list of the names of those
who occupied seats on the stage xere
the Rev. and Mrs. Henry W. Little,
formerly of this city, Mr. Little now
being rector of one of the large Lpis-
copal churches in that city.
The commencement address was
delivered by Rev. W. R. Richards, D.
D., of New York City. The address
was followed by an alumni luncheon
given to the young lady graduates.
This was a very beautiful event and
one of the most enjoyable of the com-
mencement week.
At night the music students gave a
beautiful concert, and on Wednesday
morning the graduating exercises oc-
curred. Interesting themes were read
by six of the graduates. One of the
six thus honored was Miss Janet
Weathers. The Troy Record speaks
of her theme as follows:
Miss Janet Ferguson Weathers'
theme was "Sicily, the Land of Le-
gend and Poetry." It was a splendid
effort and gracefully presented.
In representing Sicily the Land of
Legend 'and Poetry, Miss Weathers
emphasized the fact that while the re-
cent earthquake in Sicily called at-
tention of the world to that island,
the claim of Sicily upon our interest
is more than temporary, for its nat-
ural beauties, history and legends
have been celebrated from tim', im-
memorial. After noting the signifi-
cant geographical position of the is-
land, Miss Weathers spoke of the rare
natural beauties of Sicily, to which
poets and travelers from the days of
Ovid and Cicero have testified. The
speaker 1hen touched upon the le-
gends which flourished in this pictur-
esque land. The charming legend of
the fountain of Arethensa and of her
lover, the river god Alpheus, and the
myth of Mount Aetna and the buried
Titans were re-told. Of the many de-
lightful legends which found root in
the fruitful soil of Sicily, none is more
attractive than that of Demeter and
Persephone. The speaker brought
her paper to a close with a sketch of
Theocritus, the pastoral poet, living
in the fourth century, B. C., to whose
winning idyls much of the enduring
charm of Sicily is due, concluding
with lines from one of the idyls illus-
trative of the happy, care-free spirit
of the ancient Sicilian poet.

An Item of Interest to the Grocers
and Stock Owners
As there seems to be some misun-
derstanding concerning the applica-
tion of our stock food law as it ap-
plies to "mixed feeds," when the mix-
ture is composed of different grains,
the following ruling of this depart-
ment on "mixed grain" is hereby giv-
Ruling on Mixed Grain
Attention is called to section 11,
chapter 5452, Laws of Florida, acts of
1905, and chapter 5661, acts of 1907,
as amended, relating to "mixed feed,"
which includes all mixed grain, and
also to notice of judgment No. 58,
United States district court, northern
division, eastern district of Tennes-
see, "Adulteration and Misbranding
of Oats;" (mixed with barley).
The following regulation under
section 15, chapter 5452, Laws of
Florida, is hereby reaffirmed and es-
All mixed grain consisting of two
or more kinds of grain shall be tagged
"mixed feed," and shall bear the
chemical analysis, as provided in

amount or base of the principal in-
gredient of the feed and the maxi-
mum amount or per cent. of the mix-
ture must be definitely stated. In the
case of oats and barley there must
not be a les percentage of oats nor

One of the prettiest and brightest
of the graduating class, this year, at
the Florida Women's College, at Tal-
lahassee, was Miss Annie Dorcas
Broward, the oldest daughter of for-
mer Governor and Mrs. Napolean B.
Although Miss Broward is the "old-
est" daughter, shejs still quite young,
extraordinarily so to have' been grad-
uated from the college.
She is as bright and talented as she
is pretty and has many warm friends
in the Capital City.
Miss Broward plans to return to
Florida Women's College next fall, to
work for and A. M. degree, though
just what a girl as pretty as she is
wants with a lot of letters after her
name a number of friends are unable
to understand.
Miss Broward and her father are
great chums, and she is undoubtedly
one of the best informed girls in the
state on many questions. The sub-
ject she chose for her graduating es-
say caused no little surprise among
her grown-up friends; but she han-
died it in the ablest kind of manner.
Typically southern in appearance,
with a great deal of quiet charm of
manner, Miss Broward is everywhere

considered a remakably interesting
girl.-Court of Arms, Jacksonville.


Once in a while I read a passage in
literature that makes a profound Im-
pression upon me. When a boy I
read this, and I have never forgotten
it. It is said by Richelieu, who was
one of the greatest men who ever
lived or ever will live, that, when he
was dying, those who wanted to know
the secret of his power came to him
and asked him for it. The old man,
with his declining strength, said:
"Some say that it is cunning, that
I am a fox; some say that it Is cour-
age, that I am a lion. My children, It
Is neither; It Is simply justice, for I
have been just."
From that time on, Mr. President,
that dramatic tale sank so deeply
into my soul that I have felt that Jus-
tice is the sovereign word nla all the
world-Just that one word, justlce.-
Senator Beveridge.

When the smoke is floating lazily
above the cabin shed,
And the gum and poplar trees take
on their hue of gold and red,
When hickory leaves come sifting
down from branches slim and tall,
And the jaybirds start to holler, you
will know that it is fall.

When you hear the cow bell's jingle
wafted softly on the air,
And the ever busy squirrels gather
acorns here and there,
While old "Bob-White's" sitting lone-
ly, for their truant Chloe's call,
And you hear the jaybirds hiller, then
you know that lt is fall.
When you feel the tingling coolness
of the frost that's in the air,
And the echoes from the forest comes
in rhythm sweet and clear,
While the sun sinks to his cradle like
a crimson, fiery ball,
And the jaybirds start to holler, you
can say I know 'tis fall.

How this season brings to memory
happy childhood days of yore,
And the faces of our loved ones who
have journeyed on before,
How it soothes our hearts and com-
forts, as each face we now recall,
When the jaybirds start to holler and
proclaim that it is fall.
See the goldenrod and daisies lightly
waving in the air,
And it seems that God is with us, we
can feel His presence near,
And our hearts are full of kindness
for His creatures, great and small
When the jaybirds start to holler and
we know that it is fall.

And our souls from out that shadow

The Washingtonian the Most Beauti-
ful for Yards and Parkways
Jacksonville, Fla.. June 14, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
I noticed some time ago an article
in your valued paper on palm trees,
and asking for best time in which to
transplant them. As I am interested
in palm trees solely from a decorative
standpoint and grow them in my yard
for pleasure, I suggest leaving the
cabbage palm to its own environment
and abiding place, and planting in
your city the "Washingtonian,' or
California thread palm-so strikingly
beautiful as a decorative palm and
for outside planting in yards and
parkways. This palm can be bought
cheaply and planted from a year old
stock and show mfiore character, give
better results and more beauty than
the "cabbage" would in three years
after transplatning. The "Washing-
tonian" is almost indigenous to Flor-
ida, so well does it succeed here and

This plam, like so many editors, for
example, is at its best in its youth,
and grows to its estate gracefully
and splendidly, and is far the hand-
somest outdoor palm which can be
planted in Florida for quick, effective,
as well as lasting results. If you
could encourage the planting of this
palm in your city, in the public and
private parks, you would add one
more star to the Banner's crown of
usefulness in building up the city of
Ocala, in which I am pleased to note
recently some elegant homes. I en-
close you the florist's card who grows
these palms, and who has made St.
Augustine a modern Alhambra with
them. Yours truly,

"Mr. Speaker," the Hon. I. L Far-
ris, most be a young man of courage.
His ability and ambition are acknowl-
edged by all who know the shining
light from DuvaL Two years ago he
announced-or his friends announced
tor him. He was then ready to go
after Congressman Clark's scalp. But
he wisely concluded to wait. He con-
sented to be returned to the legisla-
ture, and became Mr. Speaker by the

aid of different factions. His rulings
and committee assignments have
been such as to conciliate the war-
ring sections of that popular body.

to his statement, as sworn to by J.

To the Editor Ocala Banner:
I have noticed, with some regrets,
clippings and editorial comments. in
the past few weeks In your paper, to-
gether with a communication signed
"Disgusted Democrat" in your daily
issue of the 10th inst., all of which no
doubt are intended to reflect upon the
democracy of Florida's two senators
and three congressmen in the position
they have taken In the consideration
of the tariff bill now pending before
"In the multitude of counsellors
there is safety." u&erefore it our priv-
ilege to differ with the "Disgusted
Democrat," who seems to consult
Tom Watson for his democratic
knowledge, also to differ with you in
your views on this subject.
I claim to be a democrat, without
the adulteration of populism, social-
ish or anarchy, rock-ribbed, Simon-
pure, and might be tagged "moss-
backed" by many who differ iwth me
on what the word democracy means.
I most heartily endorse the very
high and honorable position taken by
our Florida senators and members of
congress on the pending tariff bill.
.Since a high protection tariff has
been the policy of this government
for many years, made so by a popular
vote of the electors of the several
states, they having elected the presil-
dents and a majority of the upper
and lower house of congress who fa-
vored a high protective tariff, and
since, by said protection, we are told
the north and east have grown very
rich, especially the manufacturers.
and now the west, with her protected
wheat, corn. oats, barley, horses,
mules and asses, are growing rich off
the profits derived from us, the con-
sumers of the south. Why cannot we
have our oranges, lemons and other
citrus fruits, our pineapples, our cigar
tobacco and our sea island cotton pro-
tected against Lae free trade invasion
of Egyptian cotton, citrus fruits and
cigar 'tobacco of the South American
islands? Away wi'h the sickly senti-
ment of free trade, so-called modern
democracy, which, under the primary
system of the south, has been tainted
with factionalism, populism, socialism
and prohibitionism, which, at the
Denver convention, fondled at the
feet of Republican Gompers, to se-
cure, if possible, the vote of the
northern Federation of Labor, regard-
less of the principles of the good old
democratic doctrine, viz: A govern-
ment of the people, for the people
and by the people.
This scribe says all honor to Talia-
ferro, Fletcher, Sparkman, Clark and
Mays, who are manfully contending
for the financial interests of Florida.
Since protection is the policy of the
democratic party, let our state Lave
her share, Tom Watson's black list
to the contrary, notwithstanding, who
six years ago ran on a ticket with
Bryan for the vice presidency, and
last year black-listed Bryan and ran
for the presidency lamself. Some-
one "old me, however, he did not get
votes enough to be elected.
Let's hold up the hands of our con*
gressmen, Mr. Editor, and build up
the old battle-scarred democratic par-
ty, and make the rend no wider than
has already been made.

The delightful society of Middle
Florida has taken much pleasure- in
the fact that Mrs. James G. Gibbes,
Governor Gilchrist's charming moth-
er, may again be counted as a resident
for part of the year at least.
Since the governor's inauguration
last Januray, Mrs. Gibbes has presid-
ed over the executive mansion in the4
graceful, altogether delightful man-
ner for which she has always been
noted. A cultured and clever repre-
sentative of one of the South's oldest
and most prominent families, she has
always been distinguished as a
leader in the social life of whatever
part of the country has been her
Bright and witty and tactful, Mrs.
Gibbes is popular with all ages, and
she is never happier than when sur-
rounded by young people whom she
thoroughly lights in entertaining.
Most of her married life was spent at
Quincy, and she made a place in the
hearts of the young people there that
no one else can fill. Now in Talla-
hassee, she is entertaining the pretty
daughters of some of the same young
people who made her home the most
popular place in the hospitable little
town which still can claim a most de-
lightful society.
While she has been delightful in
her attention to her old friends and
their young relatives, Mrs. Gibbes
has never once forgotten that she is
the state hostess, and visitors to Tal-
lahassee during the session of the
legislature were most hospitably en-
tertained at the governor's home.
Dinner, each day, was a social func-
tion, with several guests, and gave
evidence to the housewifely skill of
the hostess as well as to her social
In all, about two hundred dinner
guests have been entertained, and
had a guest book been kept, the list
would include prominent men from
all over the state, some of them men
whose political opinions differ from
those of the state's executive.
Politics are never discussed at the
dinners at the mansion. Host and
hostess are both adepts at the light
conversation and bright repartee that
makes the social part of a dinner a
success; and every guest who has
been entertained by them carries
away the pleasantest memories and
the kindliest of thoughts.
Although Mrs. Gibbes' official po-
sition has been an arduous one, she
has thoroughly enjoyed it, and the
hospilablo people of the state capital
have (;one everything they could to
make her stay with them enjoyable.
Flowers have been showered upon
her. and her house guests have been
charmingly entertained by Tallahas-
see society.
Next season there will be more op-
port unit y for the renewal of frined-
ships of former years, for Mrs. GibbesI
will not be called upon to do so much
official entertaining, since the legis-
lature does not meet. It is needless
to prophesy that there will be con-
tinuous dinner parties and informal
entertaining, for everyone who has
the pleasure. of knowing Florida's
"first lady" know full well that she is

The following article from the Riv-
erside (Cal.) Enterprise has been
handed us by Mr. Chas. H. Walker of
this city, who returned home last
week from his California trip as a
member of the Florida orange grow-
ers' committee. It will be very inter-
esting and comforting to those Flor-
ida growers who have been fearing
the overproduction of the citrus fruit
crop in the near future and the con-
sequent lowering of prices below the
limit of profitable production.
R. P. Burton, one of the sales man-
agers of the California Fruit Ex-
change, who has been a guest at the
Glenwood with the Florida orange
growers, says that overproduction of
oranges is out of the question when
proper distribution is perfected. The
increasing crop can be well cared for


from year to year at good prices when
the advanced methods of distributing
the golden fruit are effectually em-
ployed. There is good work being
done by the California Fruit Growers'
Exchange, and the great system that
they are rapidly perfecting for the
marketing of large and increased
crops will be copied and utilized to
much advantage by the southern
growers. "Overproduction" will be-
come an obsolete term.
There is a demand throughout the
country for more fruit than is now
produced, and the one thing to be ac-
complished in disposing of the enor-
mous output at the best prices is to
see that it is thoroughly distributed
and not congested upon certain mar-
kets. People love to eat oranges the
country over and the intention is to
see that all are supplied, instead of
surfeiting certain portions of the mar-


ket and leaving the rest short. All
the fruit of this kind that can be pro-
duced will eventually be taken care
of at good profit to the growers, and
the people of the entire nation will
be served in accordance with the de-
The visit of the Floridians here and
the information given them will do
much to bring this about, for in uni-
ty there is strength, and better re-
sults can be secured by co-operation
between the growers of the south and
west than otherwise.

The great nerve and brain restore.
tive for men and women, produces
strength and vitality, builds up the
system and renews the normal vigor.
