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.

economic conditions and the perfec-
tion of the race. It is only by commu-
nication and exchange of ideas, etc.,
that enables us to reach that destina-
tion, therefore it is easy to see the
importance of a complete mail sys-
tem, that will bring foreign nations
to the same equal footing that we en-
joy in our states, and it is obvious
that the quickest way to reach the
masses is by the step already taken,
namely: The reduction of foreign
postage to Great Britain and Ger-
many. Let us hasten the day when
the nations will fall in line and we
shall become one grand world-wide
family. It may sound startling at
first, yet we have taken the steps, as
did our primitive ancestors, in form-
ing clans, and though the reduction of
a penny or two may seem small to
us, I dare say that as a process of ev-
olution its magnitude cannot yet be
seen until another generation takes
our places. We can count the pen-
nies and dollars and show the figures
of the great increase in the number
of pieces of mail in the very near fu-
ture, but it will be years before we
can estimate the wonderful benefit
derived from furthering the good will
among men by this order of reduced
Second. The instructions to the
school children, one of the most im-
portant o:-ders recently issued; the
benefit to be derived from that must
be obvious to each and every one at
once, for what causes more trouble,
confusion, delay, missending of im-
portant wall, etc., and finally the
dead letter office, than illegible ad-
Now how can the masses be reach-
ed the quickest and best way to be
taught to Lroperly address their mail
than through the school children? In
how many instances throughout the
country the children do most all the
writing I am unable to state, but
know it t3 be a fact in our own com-
munity, and undoubtedly we are only
one of many.
This matter was tamen up immedi-
ately at our office as soon as the or-
der was received from the depart-
ment, and met with the hearty ap-
proval and co-operation of all our
teachers in both schools, to such an
extent, in fact, that one afternoon of
each week was set aside for the study
of the postal laws and the proper
manner of addressing letters. The
natural result and benefit derived,
even within the short time the order
was issued before the closing of the
schools is already apparent in the
smaller amount of letters returned to
our office from the dead letter office,
thus prov:np what an inestimable
benefit this order will be, not only to
the service, but to the public In gen-
eral. If the change is already so no-
ticeable in cur small office what must
it be in large towns and cities where
there are such large numbers of
schools and scholars?
Words are inadequate to describe
the benefit this order will be to the
department, to every postmaster and
railway mail clerk, and in fact to ev-
eryone connected with the service.
Third. The rescinding of order No.
372, excess revenue on stamped pa-
per, the postmaster received the first
benefit by having something added to
his compnesation, and no matter how
little we must not forget that "every
little bit helps;" that is, I think even
a minor matter, when we take into
consideration the confusion it elimi-
nates and how it simplifies not only
our own accounts, but those of the
department as well, to say nothing of
the more angelic humor we can be in
while making out our quarterly re-

What would modernm educational
expert bave made of Uncoln if, It as a
baby, he had been put in their care?
They would probably have started
him on sterilized milk, clothed him in
4~,snfected garments, sent him to
a kindergarten where he would have
learned to weave straw-mats and sing
about the Blue Bird on the Branch.
Then the dentist would have straight-
ened his teeth, the oculist would have
fitted him with glasses, and in the
primary grade he would have been
taught by pictures and diagrams the
difference between a cow and a pig,
and through nature study he would
have learned that the catbird did not
lay kittens. By the time he was
eight he would have become a "young
gentleman;" at ten he would know
more than the old folks at home; at
twelve or fourteen he would have ta-
ken up manual training, and within
two years make a rolling-pin and tie
It with a blue ribbon. In the high
school at sixteen, where in four years
he would learn that Mars was the re-
puted son of Juno. and to recite a
stanza from "The Lady of the Lake."
Then to college, where he would
have joined the Glee Club and a
Greek Letter Fraternity, smoked cig-
arettes and graduated, and then be-
come a clerk in a banker's office; and
never, never do anyone any harm!

It is not because men are so selfish
and women not enough natural to be
attractive that the number of mar-
riages is decreasing. The present
economic conditions make it impossi-
ble for people at a marriageable age
to get married.
Matrimonial blessings are not to be
enjoyed unless the means of subsist.-
ence are provided. Our employers, as
a rule, care very little about the wel-
fare of their employees, and fix their
salaries at such a standard that young

men make only enough to support
The great social instinct driving
young people of opposite sexes to-
gether is alive, but economic condi-
lions discourage a young man nowa-
days, and make him unwillingly think
of bachelorhood.-H. H. in New 1
York World.


The Man-You don't know how i

One hot day last week a young man
dressed in thin clothes entered a Cen-
ter avenue car, and seating himself
next to a btout old gentleman, said
"Pretty wrrm, isn't It?"
"What's pretty warm?"
"Why, the weather."
"What weather?"
"Why, this weather."
"Well' how's this different from any

other weather?" -
"Well, it's warmer."
"How do you know it is?"
"I suppose it is."
"Isn't the weather the same every
"Why, no-no; it's warmer in somn
places and it's colder in others."
"What makes it warmer in som,
places than it's colder in others?"
"Why, the sun; the effect of th,
sun's heat."
"Makes it colder in some place
than it's warmer in others? Neve
heard of such a thing."
"No, no, no. I didn't mean that. Th,
sun makes it warmer."
"Then what makes it colder?"
"I believe it's the ice."
"What ice?"
"Why the ice-the ice-the ice tha
was frozen by the frost."
"Have you ever seen any ice tha

No-that is, I believe I haven't."

The big fishing smack James Pot-
ter, Captain Frank Rotando, sailing
in the Savarese fleet, was overhauled
and nearly destroyed by a monster
waterspout some twelve miles south
of Egmont Key last Thursday. Prompt
action on the part of Captain Rotando
as the waterspout bore down on the
schooner,, saved the vessel from to-
tal destruction. He secured his revol-
ver and began firing at the base of
the spout, and so broke it when it
was "but twenty feet from the stern
tof the potter. The vessel had just
begun to answer the strong suction
of the spouo when the shots broke it.
Captain Rotando declares that the
spout was higher than the vessel's

mast. It made up quickly and swept
down on them in a few minutes. No
damage was done the vessel, but in
a minute or so more, if the shots had
not broken its base, the spout would
have engulfed the schooner. The
most notable instance of a waterspout
bearing down upon a craft in this vi-
cinity occurred about fifteen years
igo, when the steamer Ella Knight,
Cap.t James McKay, was partly
wrecked at the cattle dock near Bal-
last Point. The Ella Knight was tied
ap at the dock, bow Inshore, and the
waterspout struck her stern, doing
considerable damage.-Tampa Times.

Professor John B. Smith, head of
the New Jersey state entomological
experiment station, has just finished
a tour of inspection of five counties
where the lowlands, salt marshes and
meadows have been drained, to rid
them of mosquitoes, and the unani-
mous testimony of the residents in-
terviewed was that the salt water
mosquito has been practically elimi-
nated. The counties which have been
rid of the pest are Essex, Union, Mid-
dlesex, Monmouth and Ocean, the
most popular counties in the state.
Altogether in the six years since the
campaign of mosquito extermination
began ten thousand acres of land
have been ocained, at an expense of
$5 an acre, and not only have the mos-
quitoes been exterminated, but the
land has been rendered valuable for
agricultural purposes. In carrying on
the work, Professor Smith has also
acquired much fresh knowledge re-
garding the life history of the salt wa-
ter mosquito. So successful has been
the campaign that Professor Smith
now has the enthusiastic support of
local associations of tax payers in
carrying on the work, though in the
beginning he worked practically


Mazie, Fla., Aug. 19, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
We feel it a duty we owe the pub-
lic to warn them if they have occa-
sion to travel the roads in this sec-
tion of the country to be sure and
take some rations with, them, and
will warn the automobilists to steer
clear of what was once called the pub-
lic roads-now public gullies. We
had occasion a few days ago to pass
over the roads for a distance of six
or more miles, and we were out of the
road lots of the time, and we were
forced to pass through the gullies in
several places. We did find one piece
of road that we call good, and that
commences at Flemington and for a
mile and a half going east it is all
right, and we hope the county com-
missioners will vote the builders their
thanks for the same. I believe I will
make a motion that all hard road
building be suspended for the present
and all the money available for roads
be applied in putting the public roads
in a passable condition.

There ought to be a foundation
stone that commercial floods, panics
and disasters cannot wash away.

There are some indications that the

as depicted in comic supplemen's.
Mid a booming of cannon and I'iare
of trumpets his candidacy was for-

lieved by many well posted Florid-

that he really never seriously contem-

. C lark akes answer to the Mi-
IMetIMpets I a round about way,
Sa that the person who said
he had lost his party standing
te that reason was not made a
r at the congressional commit-
i, sa a liar. Mr. Clark used the
ueser and uglier word. He must


call somebody a liar, and this hap-
pens to be the Washington corres-
pondent of the Chicago Record-Her-
- Mr. Clark also calls him a penny-
a-liner. This is usual, too. Whenever
a writer of any caliber whatever tells
an unpalatable truth about a public
person he becomes immediately a
penny-a-liner. If this person had said
that Mr. Clark is a great man and
would some day be the leader of his
party in the house, he would no doubt
have been in the opinion of Mr. Clark
an able and incorruptible Journalist.
As it is, however, he is (in the opin-
ion of Mr. Clark), a liar and a penny-
Mr. Clark wants to know if the
statement of such a person is to be
credited in preference to his own
statement. Pronouncing a judicial
opinion-yes, Mr. Clark. This Chica-
go Record-Herald man has no interest
in you and has no enmity against you.
This eliminates the human reason
that would cause him to say anything
wantonly to injure you. He is in the
better position to say whether you are
discredited by your party associates
than you are. A crazy man does not
sit in judgment on his own mental
condition. Your testimony in the
premises is not competent, Mr. Clark.
And, moreover, the Washington
correspondent of the Chicago Record-
Herald is answerable to his newspa-
per every tday in the year for th. in-
tegrity of his work and for the ttuth
of the assertion he makes. You., Mr.
Clrak. are responsible to nobody. You
can make what assertions you please.
and there is nobody to say otherwise,
unless it happens to be a miserable
penny-a-liner of a newspaper man,
and you can promptly denounce him
as a liar. Do you suppose your col-
leageus are going to peach on you,
Mr. Clark? They have their own po-
litical forces to look after, and there
is no profit to them in mixing up with
affairs in your district. It is quite
enough to fight their own battles with-
out taking a hand in yours.
And when we come to think of it,
Mr. Clark, we don't know that you
have an exclusive right to sit on the
big temple of truth and hurtle "Liar!"
down from its heights. How did you
get up there. Mr. Clark? We recall
a little walking cane incident of the
last campaign, and you were at the
wrong end of the cane, and as we re-
member it this came about through
some carelessness on your part in
handling the truth, and there was an-
other little incident which happened
in your home town in which you were
the recipient of a very severe rebuke

Some time ago I heard a preacher
say to his congregation: "Two funer-
als in your place yesterday. Those
who died were lovely in character and
precious to their families. They were
lamented by the mourners as they
went along the streets, but I will haz-
ard the assertion that' more tears fell
last night for the living than the

dead." daid he: "I would risk my
judgment on the truth of the follow-
ing declarat-on, namely, that more
tears, more prayers and more sighs
went up to God from dark to daylight
from anxious heart-sore parents on
account of wayward children thaa for
all other troubles in this world be-
Look about you and see if the
preacher spoke truly! Examine into
your personal experience, and ask
yourself what lies heaviest on your
heart, after your daily round of duty
is over and you gather, or try to
gather your family about you for
sleep and rest. Who is it that prays
When a young mother looks at the
babe at her bosom, who loves it so
Sometimes, she is hardly more than
a child in years or experience. Love
has come to her arms in the shape of
something that links her life to the
Great Unknown and the Greati Here-
There is a new inspiration in her
being, something like new wine fills
her veins.
With this tiny scrap of humanity on
her lap, her very soul cleaves to it,
and comes nearer to divine love than
anything known to earth.
A new light comes in her eyes, a
new hope in her breast, and she prays
unconsciously. She wants the best
there is for her own-this precious
part of her own life. Sick or well,
happy or miserable, she covers the lit-
tle thing with the best that is in her
nature. He." anxiety leads her to seek
support in prayer. When the child
sickens and her heart-strings are
wrung she appreciates her helpless-
ness as never before-and she prays.
When the.-e children grow and scat-
ter abroad s.he knows how the tempt-
er can harrmss them, she prays again.
Even if a poor wretch goes to the gal-
lows, he is not friendless so long as
his mother lives.
I should not be surprised if we
shall find in the Great Hereafter that
it has only been God's love and moth-
er-love that have kept the jarring ele-
ments from wrecking human kind.

Do you ever dream, Carita, of the twi-
light of long ago?
When the stars shone silver splendor
from the skies of Mexico?
When the moonbeams on the plaza
traced a shimmering brocade,
And the fountains' tinkling tumult
seemed a rippling serenade?
When the velvet-petaled pansies, lift-
ing light lips in the gloom,
Breathed their yearning for the night
winds in the passion of perfume,
When in soft cascades of cadence
from a garden dim and far,
Came the mournful mellow music of
a murmuring guitar.
Years have passed since then, Carita,
fleet as orchard blooms in May.
But the hout that firs my dreaming-
was it yesterday?
Stood we two a space on silence, while
the southern sun slipped d Iwn,
And the gray dove, Dusk, with brood-
ing pinions wrapt the little town.
Then you raised your tender glances,
darkly, dreamily to mine,
And my pulses clashed like cyn..bals
in a rhapsody divine,
And the pent-up fires o ongoing
their prisoner's weak control.
And in wild hot words came leaping.
madly from my burning soul.
Wild hot words were to'd of passion.
hitherto but half expressed,
And I caught* you close, Carita, clas.-
ed you to my breast.
While the twilight-purpled heavens
reeled around us where we stood,
And a tide of bliss swept surging
through the currents of our blood,
And I spent my soul in kisses, crush-
ed upon your scarlet mouth,

It was well that fate should part up.
it was well my path should lead
Back to slopes of high endeavor-nry
and was it well indeed?

All the bids for the building of the
new opera house and Masonic temple
have been opened, and after the same
were carefully gone over and con-
sidered, the contract was given to
Messrs. McIver & MacKay of this
city, which insures the construction
of a creditable building.
The plans and specifications were
drawn by this firm, and as they were
largely controlled by the spirit of loy-
alty and patriotism to the city, the
building will be more ornamental and
substantial than the sum subscribed
would indicate.
In a word, the people of Ocala are
going to be exceedingly pleased with
their new opera house, as the same
pains will be taken in its construction
as were taken when drawing the
plans and specifications.
The contract calls for its comple-
tion by January 1st, so the first night
of the new year will ce celebrated by
its formal opening.
Plans for its dedication are already
being suggested and considered, and
sufficee it to say that its dedication
will be made historic.

Fire Chief Chambers was walking
lame yesterday from the effects of an
unequal contest he had with a deer
the night before. The deer had es-
caped from the city park and the fire
chief was attempting to get him back.
Just as the deer was apparently about
to enter the gate he changed his mind,
sniffed the air, showed his bristles.
rose upon his hind feet and made a
lunge at the chief. Mr. Chambers
beat him with a stick of wood,
and finally caught the deer by his ant-
lers, but the deer proved the strong-
er, and pulled him for some distance,
and when Mr. Chambers' hold was
broken, he fell to the ground, and be-
fore he could recover himself or help
reach him the buck rose in the air
and plunged onto the chief with his
hoofs, bruising him and lacerating the
skin in many places. Finally Mr.
Chambers recovered himself, and by
this time aid reached him, and the
now thoroughly angered animal was
surrounded and forced through the
gate and into the park. Mr. Cham-
bers says that he will not again at-
tempt to coerce one of the antlered
tribe all by his lonesome.

peaktlg of the monument that to
to be erected to exalt the virtues,
amltes sad heroism of the women
of te south, one of the Atlanta pa-
pers speaks of It as follows:
Beatting i nobility of conception
and beauty of execution the subject
It Is to commemorate, the design for
the iasemnt to the women of the
LAts Cause has been completed. It is
the work of a Dixie girl, Miss Belle
Kinaey. of Nashville, Tenn., and has
been accepted by several states. It
is probable that all the states which
left the Union in the civil war will
adopt the design and that replicas of
the monument will be placed in the
capitol of each.
The design for the proposed monu-
ment is very beautiful and elevating.
The central figure, of heroic size, is
the goddess of fame. At her right,
the reclining figure, delicately featur-
ed, beautiful, but with an expression
of exquisite sadness, represents the
self-sacrifcing southern woman of
the war time. Fame is represented as
placing a wreath upon a southern
woman's head, while she supports at
her left a dying and emaciated Con-
federate soldier, to whom the south-
ern woman is extending, even in
death, the palm of victory.
The design is such that it readily
lends Itself to reproduction either in
marble or broase.

* A year or more ago the Daughter)
of the Confederacy and the Sons ol
Confederate Veterans decided upom
the erection of these monuments ta
every state capital in Dixie. The
work was to have been done by ax
Italian sculptor. When his design
was submitted at the late Confederate
re-union in Memphis it raised a storn
of protests. The artist had pictured
the southern woman as a militant
and Amazonian figure, carrying in
one hand a sword and in the other
the banner of the Lost Cause. This
conception was as foreign to the gen-
tie, suffering and patient woman ol
the southland as those who loved her
had known her, that the design was
rejected by an overwhelming vote.
The angered artist declined to sub-
mit another and Miss Kinney was ap-
pealed to. Tennessee has appropria-
ted $2500 through the Daughters and
Sons of the Confederacy for a bronze
cast of the design. Other states are
raising funds for the purpose and it is
believed that by fall each of the for-
mer Confederate states will have fol-
lowed suit.
Miss Kinney, the artist, is but 22
years of age, and is already a sculp-
tor of more than national fame. She
was recently awarded the contract for
a heroic statute of the late Senator
Edward W Carmack of Tennessee,
killed by Cooper. When a child she
received a prize at the Centennial in
Nashville for a bust of her father. She
received an education in art at the
Art Institute in Chicago and later
studied abroad. She was awarded
the contract for twenty Igorrote fig-
ures at the field museum, and has at-
tracted a great deal of attention in
art circles throughout the world.

There are democrats and democrats
and yet other democrats, and it is


gratification to know that all
of democrats are praising Gov-



ernor Gllchrist for the manner he is
conducting the gubernatorial office
and carrying out his pledges. There
is a vacany on the board of county
commissioners of Sumter county, and
the governor says that the vacancy

The Young Men's Christian Asso-
ciation building in Jacksonville is
about completed. It is a magnificent
building and is not only a credit to
that city but to the whole south. Its
reading room will be one of its most
attractive features. It will have all
the latest publications, and a com-
plete file of the daily and weekly pa-
pers of the state. Jakesonville has
done herself proud in the erection of
this splendid building as a gathering
place for young men. which will large-
ly help to keep them away from the
haunts of evil.

Have the Pensacola Journal, Orlan-
do Reporter-Star and some other of
our state exchanges been taking a

great needs Is a state board of trade.
We have had a state board of trade
for several years. It was organized

Ocala, Fla, Aug. 20, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
The recent death of Dr. Powers,
one of Ocala's most valued eltisens,
because of that dread disease, con-
sumption, induces me to ask for space
in your valued columns for a brief
statement of my views on the pre-
vention and cure of the great White
Plague, so destructive to life and hap-
piness. I ari not a physician and dis-
cuss the matter only from the stand-
point of study and personal experi-
ence. I came out of the civil war ut-
terly broken in health, largely due to
miasmatic influences of the Missis-
sippi valley, in which I was stationed
for nearly four years, and six months
later developed one of the worst cases
of tuberculosis of which there is rec-
ord, resulting in twenty-eight horri-
ble hemorrhages of the lungs, and
numberless spells of coughing up
blood, notwithstanding the best medi-
cal skill obtainable, including the
great specialist, Dr. DaCosta, of Phil-
adelphia, who pronounced my case
hopeless. Medical skill was, in my
case, unavailing, and in the fall of
1878 I came to Florida, wintering in
Gainesville, where I was attended by
Dr. Phillips, who, after a month's un-
ceasing care, told me I must die.
Then I could not speak above a whis-
per, while now, when I call a "colored
brother" across a forty-acre lot, he
comes on the double quick, due al-
most wholly to inhaling the properties
of Florida "fat lightwood."
Those having consumption, or being
threatened with lung trouble in any
form, will find the following conclu-
sions worthy of consideration. They
are the remedies I adopted when the
best medical! skill proved unavailing:
* *


Its Treatment and Avoidance-Flori-
da the Sanitarium of the World.
Last Hope of the Consumptive

Wherever you happen to be when
the doctors say "pneumonia" or
"bronchitis" (they never call it con-
sumption) go to Florida, go at once,
and stay there. Settle down in the
high, dry, piney woods; if possible,
among pleasant people, and you the
only invalid. Secure a large ,airy
room on second floor, fill the space
under your bed with "fat lightwood,"
split finely; make sure of good venti-
lation; wear flannel underwear, no
matter what the thermometer regis-
ters; keep out of draughts; think of
all the jokes you ever heard; inflate
the lungs frequently with pure, dry
air; eat plain food; drink plenty of
milk; exercise moderately; let the
other fellow worry, and shoot the
first fiend who whispers, "Poor man,
his days are numbered!"
As to lymph, and the many other
"sure cures"-bosh! Who ever knew
of a consumptive cured by drugs? If
you want to commit suicide, buy the
dozen or mere prettily labeled bottles
your friends are sure to recommend,
leave them in sight, talk sick, and
buy a lot in a cemetery.
One of the most important ques-
tions is: "What should be done in
case of a hemorrhage?" 1st. Send
post haste for a doctor. 2nd. Lay the
patient on his or her back; apply
quantities of crushed ice to the chest,
using a rubber bag or oil cloth, and
tuck clothes alongside to absorb the
drippings. 3rd. Apply a jug or bot-
tle of hot water to the feet; feel all
the crushed ice the patient will swal-
low; give a teaspoonful of ergot of
rye every half hour, and you will
have done everything possible, except
to drive everyone off the premises
who is not cool and collected.
After the hemorrhage, the patient
should be perfectly quiet for several
days; feed scups, beef juice, anything
easily digested the patient desires,
positively prohibiting stimulants.
That consumption can be communi-
cated by inhaling air impregnated
with bacilli, has been proved by ex-
perience. Experiments on the human
subject is impracticable, but one case
is on record in which the disease was
unquestionably taken by inhalation.
Tappenier was making some experi-
ments on the possibility of communi-
cating consumption to dogs by caus-
ing them to inhale the atmosphere of
a room impregnated with its bacilli.
His servant, a man froty years old,
and free from all hereditary or physi-
cal taint, had been cautioned against
entering this impregnated room. But
in a spirit of bravado he did so many
times. He was taken sick, and after
an illness of fourteen weeks, died; on
post mortem examination it was
found that he had the same form of
consumption as the dogs that died
from exposure in the chamber.
Aonther remarkable instance is the
case of the Pugeans, amongst whom
consumption was unknown until a

the best observers and investigators
believe that consumption is not hered-
itary, and there is much evidence in
favor of this view.
With such evidence of the possibil-
ity of inhaling the bacilli, the ques-
tion should naturally be asked, how
does the bacilli get into the atmos-
phere when they are not found in the
breath of sufferers from the disease?
We know, positively, that in these
cases bacilli are present in the mu-
cus which is raised after coughing.
In its moist condition, it is impossible
for it to be inhaled, but when it dries
and becomes dust, it is blown about,
and it is in this form that it becomes
How Can Consumption be Avoided?
1. Every physician who has pa-
tients suffering from consumption
should instruct them wherein the dan-
ger lies to others, as well as them-
selves, for it is not impossible for a
consumptive to reinfect himself by
uncleanly habits. Consumptives
should be impressed with the impor-
tance of a proper disposal of the spu-
ta, and effectual means should be em-
ployed to prevent its conversion into
2. Proprietors of hotels and health
resorts for those guests should pro-
vide suitable cuspidors, containing a

non-smelling disintreant, cleaned
morning and evening regularly. It
should be made imperative that cus-
pidors should always be used. The
bedding or any other linen about the
room should be removed and cleansed
before any smita on it becomes dry.
When a gm-st leaves the hotel the
walls, floor cr carpet and furniture of
the room should be wiped off with a
damp cloth. This would be little more
trouble than the present method of
dusting and cleaning the room. Most
of the bacilli would in this way be re-
moved from the room and a new
guest would enter it without danger.
Very respectfully,

A somewhat meager discussion is
being indulged in among the state
press relative to the division of our
state. The Ocala Banner commenc-
ed the little ball upon its journey,
and it has gathered a little here and
a little there until occasionally we can
hear the matter mentioned, and we
believe it will continue to gather ma-
terial until it grows tAo huge propor-
We believe the people of both sec-
tions of the state would favor division
were the proposition brought before
them in a practicable manner. From
this section it is from four to six hun-
dred miles to the state capital, and
from six to eight hundred miles to
the western boundary. It takes long-
er to travel from Miami to Pensacola
than from Pensacola to New York.
The time and expense of going to the
state capital is so much that pe-ple
with only ordinary business matters
to attend to cannot afford the time
and expense We are entirely isolat-
ed from headquarters.
And again, the people of South
Florida, with their truck farms, pine-
apples, oranges, bananas, cocoanuts,
and the hundreds of fruit and vegeta-
bles have no interest in common with
the cotton growers, tobacco produc-
ers and the other farmers of the west-
ern section. The conditions and en-
vironments of one section are entire-
ly foreign to the interest of the other.
Laws which are of practical value
and a necessity in one section often
work hardship upon the other section.
Our ideas, tastes and habits are just
as different as are the ideas, tastes
and habits of any other two sections
of' this country.

A -happy solution of this situation
would be to divide the state with the
Suwannee river as the line, and thus
each state could so arrange its plans,
finances and other laws and regula-
tions in conformity with the wishes
and needs of that particular locality.
The people of Florida-those who
are natives and have no desire to
leave, and those ho are cities from
choice-are a live, wide-awake, pro-
gressive combination of generous,
loyal citizenship, and each section
would feel a distinct loss, personally
and socially, in such division, but our
vast commercial interests, our varied
occupations, professions and plans of
earning a livelihood, call out in un.

malned in their savage surroundings.
How else than by communication
are we to account tor the rapid
spread of consumption amongst sav-
age nations, where this disease was
unknown before civilized people be-
gan to asit them? This is true of our
own American Indians, the inhabi-
tants of Central Africa and many
other people. Intermarrying, or any
other condition which might make
hereditary transmission a possible
cause, certainly could not account for
its rapid progress. Besides, some of

ty stands first in point of vegetshbl
shipments, and is rapidly coming to
the front as one of the chief citrus
fruit growing counties in the state.
and the only one that is making a
specialty of growing and marketing
purely tropical fruits.
Just send your Ocala correspond-
ent down here, let him Jke a g6od
strong glimpse of our w.lnfg city.
which, by the way. is glang more
rapidly than at any time tls history.
let him take a trip throuW the coun-
try districts and see the mammoth
citrus groves and the tropical fruit
orchards and the thousands of acres
of land that are cultivated in vegeta-
bles and the magnificent country
homes, and he will not wonder that
Miami has two splendid daily and
weekly papers and a magazine, and
that they are all receiving a splendid
support, not only by the residents of
the city, the citizens of the county,
but non-residents scattered over the
state and every other state In the
union, then he will make amende bhoe-
orable and say there are only two
cities in the south with 7000 inhabi.
tants who have and support two
splendid daily and weekly papers.
Come over, captain, and we will con-
vince you of the error of your state-
ment.-E. V Blackman, editor Home-
Seeker, in Miami News-Record.
* *

All that Mr. Blackman says about
Miami and Dade county the Ocala
Banner subscribes to and heartily en-
dorses. One can hardly exaggerate
the beauties, the splendors, the actu-
alities and the possibilities of Miami
and Dade county. The growth of
both have been wonderful, and as
wonderful as they have been their
growth and development are destined
to become more wonderful still be-
cause of their peculiar and favorable
The greetings of this paper go out
to that section and indeed to every
section of Florida with every good
wish and prediction; yet, this being
true, the Banner stands by the Pack-
er man In his statement "that there
is no city anywhere of its size in the
south that supports two daily papers
combined with the weekly editions,
yet Ocala does so."
The Packer man, through the cour-
tesy of his nature, gives Ocala a
population of 7000, while in reality
she has but 5000, half of which at
colored and not in the habit of patron-
izing newspapers, while Miami has a
population of more than 12,000. moat
of whom are white and given to news-
paper patronage, so the comparison
does not apply.
The editor of the Ocala Banner
made the statement before the State
Press Association that Ocala stood
unique and alone In that It was te
only town of its sih in the while
world that supported two dally new-
f&near w mih s a. -



To the Packer: It Is generally -P
posed fhat a newspaper of the stMd*
ing of the Packer, has at least trbth
ful correspondents to furnish ew"
for its numerous readers. The Ocals
correspondent, be he a "star man or
a pick up, made a grievously wr=M
statement in regard to Ocala is your
last issue. Partly what he said Was
true, especially his remarks In regard
to the Ocala Banner and the Star.
There are few cities in the south, of
the population of Ocala, that support
two as good newspapers as these,
wbhch is evidence beyond a question
that the citizens of Ocala and Ma-
rion county are a pushing, energetic
people. Ocala is probably one of the
best inland cities in the state.
"There is no city anywhere of its
size in the south of 7000 inhabitants
that can support two daily papers.
combined with the weekly editions.
yet Ocala does so, and they are first
class-the Ocala Banner and the
Ocala Star.'
Now, our venerable friend Harris.
editor of the Banner, would make no
claim like this, as he knows that Mi-
ami has two daily and two weekly pa-
pers equal to any published in the
state or out of the state. The Even-
ing Metropolis and Morning News-
Record, published in this city, ase ac-
knowledged by the newspaper frater-
nity as being two of the best papers
published in the state. A statement
in a paper so widely read as the
Packer, that there is no other city in
the south that can, and does not, sup-
port two dailies and two weeklies, ex-
cept the city of Ocala, is misleading
and an injustice to the papers of Mi-
ami and its citizens.
While Ocala and Marion county
(one of the best cities and 1be4 coun-
ties in the state) are among the old-
est settled portions of the south. Mi-
ami and Dade county are but thir-
teen years old in point of settlement.
yet without question Miami is the
finest city in the state and Dide coun-

Deny It though we may, the sterl-
zation of mankind Is gradually ap-
proaching. The innumerable po0lle
of the plant, the enormous spawn of
the ish, show how nature attempts* to
insure the perpetuity of the lower spe-
cies at all hazards. Millions of seeds
are produced that thousands may be
planted, that hundreds may take root,
that a dosen may arrive at maturity.
This applies to the lower forms of
animal life, as everyone knows. But
when, as Fiske shows, the danger Is
reduced to a minimum, nature makes
each impregnated individual cell de-
velop and counterfeit the parent. Lit-
tle by little, as settled conditions of
civilization obtain, fecundation is not
needed so frequently, and smaller
families result. It is then that man
instinctively breeds for quality, not
quantity. The love and the fastidi-
ousness once necessary merely to
bring together the sexes for the pur-
pose of generation is then expended
in carefully breeding the inheritors of
the accumulated wisdom of the cen-
turies. Gradually, as Bernard Shaw
so well shows, "the great central pur-
pose of breeding the race to heights
now deemed superhuman, will break
through into clear sunlight as a pur-
pose no longer to be confused with
the gratification of personal fancies,
the impossible realization of boys' and
girls' dreams of bliss, or the need of
older people for companionship- or
This may seem cynical, but in real-
ity it is far removed from cynicism.
The ultimate aim of nature, the pro-
duction of a morally, mentally, physi-
cally perfect human race, is gradual-
ly but surely being consummated.
Numbers are already being sacrificed
for kind, the energy once so prodigal-
ly used for the production of a multi-
tude is now conserved and employed
in the perfection of individuals.
From this law there seems no escape.
The Rooseve!ts of today may talk all
they please about the dangers of race
suicide. If diminution in the number
born is a suicide of the race then na-
ture is a murderess. But her aim is
beneficent. There have been untold
millions of years of preparation; pos-
sibly many aeons will elapse ere the
perfect specimen of man is evolved.
The fact that the greatest travail has
already been passed would seem to
prove that nature is gradually ap-
proaching the consummation for
which she has been laboring these
untold ages-the production of a per-
fect man.-The Lancet Clinic.

Vicious Monsters Plentiful in the Har-
bor of Pensacola

The Pensacola Journal says:
That sharks are now plentiful in

erville, where they had gone swim-

Meet lands for general agricultural
purposes of all kinds in the state. All
of 'Marion county is fine for the farm-
er who wishes to grow diversified
erops, and diversified crops are the
paying plan in Florida. The idea of
growing one crop and shipping that
crop north and then buying from the
north that which is necessary to sus-
tain life has been the curse of Flor-
Ida for years. Fl.orida is supreme in
being able to grow anything she
needs to live upon, but the ignorance
of its many people is the cause of its
not doing so. It's fine to grow canta-
loupes at from $300 to $800 per car,
and even more sometimes, but when
you have to pay for corn, or oats or
bay it does not pay. Grow the pro-
duct of necessity at home and ship
that which all the north country is
lookiag for-fruits and vegetables-
la a fresh and pure condition. Do not
ask your commission merchant to
take a bum packed package, but pack
It rtght and you will always get the
high market price, providing you ship
to the right kind of commission mer-
From Lowell Section
Lowell, ia.-Lowell is one of the
Marion county towns which is more
than worthy of mention. Lowell is
fte in every respect-land, homes
and scenery. One enjoys all by driv-
tag through It. The mockingbird and
cardinal give music to those who love
music. Those who do not love music
do not hear them.
The growers here are 8. F. Rou,
who was away from home, but it in
the business and grows cabbage,
beams and t.-ntalovpes as a principal
crop. Mr. Ron is also manager of the
Wetumpka Fruit Company, which
shipped last season 7000 boxes of cit-
rus fruits-oranges, tangerines and
grapetfrut-and has a fine prospect
for a large crop this season.
W. W. Selling grows cantaloupes,
water elonu and beans as a princi-
pal crop, and a general Florida farm
crop of corn and other products too
numerous to mention. Mr. Snelling
said: "Had a fine season, received
good prices for that which was good,
and am entirely satisfied with the re-
salts of this year's work."
J. A. Waters is one of the growers
here and makes a specialty of onions,
tomatoes, beans, squash, okra and
From authentic information the
writer learns that Lowell has shipped
225 cars this season of cabbage, can-
taloupes and watermelons-a pretty
good showing for one of Marion coun-
ty's town Marion county is supreme
in her production of that which the
people ask for and live upon.


President Robinson and Secretary
Williams began the erection of two
more buildings at the fair grounds
Wednesday and will erect five hun-
dred more seats on the grand stand,
in order to satisfy the demands for
space, which unfortunately it was im-
possible for them to do last season.
The fair is meeting with encourage-
ment from all sources and promises
to far excel the fair of last year as
pronounced a success as it was. More
than three thousand dollars have al-
ready been subscribed to insure the
payment of all the premiums offered
and have the fair run on a cash basis
from start to finish.
Nearly every farmer in the county
is saving up for a blue ribbon display
and the people are going to be sur-
prised at the quality as ,ell as the
quantity of the things on display.
Let everybody become enthusiastic
and talk fair and arouse a big interest
in it.
Commenting on the conviction of a
printer named Moore of the crime of
manslaughter at Miami, the Inverness
Chronicle calls attention to the fact
that if Moore goes to the penitentiary
he will be the only newspaper man
in Florida wearing stripes. This con-
dition is not peculiar to Florida. for.
as the Chronicle points out, penal sta-
tistics prove that while lawyers, doc-
tors, preachers and men of other pro-
feasions are numerous in the peniten-
tiaries, an editor or printer is rarely
found there Editors are not only
not law-breakers, but as a rule they
are the most ardent supporters of all

Mr. A. M. Bobbitt, merchant at
Oak, was a pleasant caller at the
Ocala Banner office Wednesday, and
enrolled for its weekly visits. He
says the McDowell crate mill, which
has been closed down for some
weeks, is again in operation. The
mill gives employment to over 150
men when in full operation, and its
resumption means a great deal to our
neighboring village.
The burglars are still at work. On
Tuesday night they attempted an en-
trance at the home of Mr. T. W. Trox-
ler and was more successful at the
home of Mr. R. C. Loveridge. They
found no coin, which probably was
the object of their search, but helped
themselves to a lot of cooked provis-
ions Deputy Sheriff Hutson says
that there were two in the bunch. Be
on the alert and when they make you
a visit meet them with a shotgun and
pepper them well. We are quite anx-
ious to know who they are. Their in-
dustry is at least commendable.
Mr. J. H. Gee, representing the fa-
mous Lipton teas, was among the
commercial men visiting Ocala Wed-
nesday. Mr. Gee is a nephew of the
late Dr. John H. Gee, of Quincy, who
was keeper of the Salisbury, N. C.,
prison during the civil war, and was
put on trial by the federal authorities

A letter was received in Ocala yes-
terday from Lake City saying that for-
mer Marshal W. C. Bull of this city
was very much better. His friends
here will be glad to know it. He has
been a great sufferer.
Mr. D. A. Clark of Martel, a member
of the Clark, Ray, Johnson firm, is re-
cuperating at Glen Springs, S. C., for
a week or two. He will then join his
wife and little girls, who are spend-

Mr. R. C. Jones, mention of whom
was made in yesterday's paper, wish-

stead of the Tampa & Jacksonville.
He is at work now near Martel, and
the road is going to be in operation
before spring.
Mr. Ben Rheinauer, who was so
sick during the spring, is back from

in the big city long enough to buy a
complete stock of fall and winter

William Gomm of Buckingham, Lee

"What Is Home Witbout a Moth-
er?" There's the motto on the wall,
agingg in a place obtrusive, where it
may be seen by all, and the question's
never answered-we can't know what
home would be if its gentle guardian
angel in her place no more we'd see.
Mother washes all the dishes, and
shbe's sweeping up the floors, while
the girls anr in the parlor doing Pad-
erewski chores; mother's breaking up
some kindlir.g at the woodpile by the
gate, while the boys are in the gar-
dens with their shovels, digging tait;
mother's on her knees a-Ecrubbing,
where the careless footprints are.
while the father sits in comfort, til-
ing at a bad cigar. Mother sits with
weary fingers, and with bent and ach-
ing head, sewing, darning, for the chi-1
dren. while they're all asleep in bed;
mother's up before the sunrise up
to labor and to moil, thinking ever
of the others, in the weary round of
toil. What is home without a moth-
er? That we'll never realize till the
light of life has faded from the kind
and patient eyes; when the imple-
ments of labor fall unheeded from
her hand. and the loving voice is si-
lent-then, at last, we'll understand.
-Walt Mascn, in Pittsburg Chronicle.

With a view to showing what is
done in Alachua county in the way of
producing sorn, the Sun offers the fol-
lowing cash prizes for the best corn
brought into the office before October I
15th, 1909:
Best stalk of corn, showing two or
more well developed ears, $3.
Second best stalk of corn, $1.50.
Best ear of corn, $2.
Second best ear of corn, $1.
The corn entered must be grown in
Alachua county; must be delivered at
the Sun office, all charges paid, be-
fore October 15th, and be accompan-
ied by the grower's name, address,
number of acres grown, average yield
per acre, variety, and a short descrip-
tion of the method of cultivation.
The exhibits will be placed in some
public place and left on exhibit for
a few days at the close of the con-
test. r *-....---- .. ,
The awards will be made by compe-
tent farmers, who have not entered
any corn in the contest.
The object in offering these prizes
is to stimulate our farmers to better
things in the way of crops for home
use and to ship.-Gainesville Sun.


Some of the country editors suffer-j
ed a cruel disappointment at the re-'
ception tendered them recently by
Governor Brown.
They were moving around slowly
on the piazza and in the hall of the
mansion, meeting distinguished peo-
ple and talking to each other, when
Secretary Blackburn approached and
said. in a confidential manner. "Cen-
tlemen, follow me."
Quite a string of the rural quill
drivers followed close in the waKe of
the affable secretary, who led the way
"Whe.'e is he carrying us?" inquir-
ed one of another, as the motto of the
procession seemed to be "Excelsior."
No one knew, but all were from
Missouri. Visions of cool and amber
decocticns from Milwaukee, or per-
chance a sparkling and rare old vint-
age from the grapes of Cobb county,
in a sequestered nook. brought mois-
ture to the parched throats and lips
of the opinion moulders, for whom
no oasis had appeared in the desert
intervening between D-uglas and At-
Entering a large room. Mr. Black-
burn said. "Gentlemen, leave your
hats here."
An arid wave caused the tempera-
ture in the room to rise rapidly.
Wiping the perspiration from their
dlomes of thought, the victims of an
unintentional, but cruel, disappoint-
ment grinned dryly at each other and
slowly wended their way down stairs.
One was heard to remark, confiden-
tially: "To my sorrow. I am thorough-
ly convinced that Governor Brown is
a prohobiti.-nist."


The advance in the duty on lemons
is a stiff one on an article which is
J now handled on a very close margin,
and we in New York do not looc on
the advance with the slightest degree
of satisfaction. It is too soon to know
Just how the advance will affect the
market, but it would naturally cur-
tail the sales here," says Victor L.
Zorn, the prominent New York lemon
"This increase in the duty on lem-
ons is very unfair," says S. Saitta of
New York City. "It has been figured
that the average cost of lemons f o.
b. Palermo is about $1.35 per box. Un-
der the new tariff the duty, freight, in-
surance and cost of handling up to
the time it gets to the jobber's hands
will be close to $1.75 a box, making
the total cost to the purchaser at the
auction sales of an average price of
$3.10 a box. This price will make it
practically prohibitive to import the
cheaper grades of lemons."-Pacific
Fruit World.
According to the above only the
higher grades of lemons can be hand-
led profitably in this country. This
will be roug;i on the poorer people.
So far as Florida is concerned, why
should we pay these excessive rates
for lemons when we can grow a first
rate fruit ourselves.
Simply because the cold sometimes
takes the tender lemon tree in this
locality is no reason why we should
not grow them between cold seasons.
Some of th- largest trees we saw
about Orlando in 188.-; were Sicily
lemon trees, yielding hundreds of box-
es of fine fruit. If we do not care to
grow the lemon to ship, and there
really is no more profitable field, let
us grow enough for home consump-
tion.-Orlando Reporter-Star.


They say that love is blind.
Love perhaps is short sighted, or
inclined to strabismus, or sees things
all out of their true proportions,
magnifying pleasant little ways into
seraphic virtues, but love is not real-
ly blind.
The bandage is never so tight but
that it can peep.
Then. look you, the virtues you be-
hold In the beloved you really make
your own.
The only kind of love that is really
blind and draf is platonic lo,,ve.
Platonic love hasn't the slightest
idea of where it is going, or what is
going to happen, and so there are
surprises and shocks in store for it.
The other kind, with eyes a-peep is
I know a man who has tried both.
Love is progressive.
All things sleep, .or become scme-
thing else. And often they become
something else by dying.
Behold tht eternal paradox!
The love that evolves into a higher
form is ihe better kind.
Nature is intent on evolution, yet
ot the myriad of spores that cover
the earth, most of them are doomed
to death, and of the countless rays
sent out by the sun. the number that
falls athwart this planet are infinites-
Disappointed love. or love that is
"lost," often affects the individual for
the highest good.
Love is for the lover, just as work
is for the worker.
Love in ilt essence is a spiritual
emotion, and its office seems to be
an interchange of thought and feel-
ing; but sometimes, thwarted in its
object, it becomes universal, trans-

forms itself into sympathy, and, em-
bracing a world. ges out to and
blesses all mankind.
The love you give away is the only
love you keep.-Elbert Hubbard in
New York American.

Old age is coming on apace, and

They removed the patient's gizzard,
chopped his ilium away;
They took out his pink appendix and
his largest vertebra;
Set him breathing through a goose-
quill they inserted in his throttle;
Took his liver from its moorings and
preserved it in a bottle.
In the lining of his stomach they dis-
cerned little flaw-
They dispensed with it, replaced it
with a throbbing ostrich craw.
Many another inward trinket they
hacked cut of him beside-
All "successful ,operations"-but the

The appropriation made by the leg-
islature for the University was as fol-
$40,000 for an engineering hall.
$40,000 for the experiment station
and agricultural hall.
$40,000 for a general science hall.
$10,000 fo- the completion of the
present buildings.
$15,000 for the conduct of farmers'
institutes for two years.
$10,000 for the improvement of the
campus and farm.
Add to this enormous amount the
current expenses for the University,
the appropriations for the Female
College, the Colored School, and the
school for the Deaf. Dumb and Blind,
and it would seem that the Buckman
law calls for as much money as the
schools it abolished, when it was said
by its advocates that it would lessen
the expense.
The country schools are neglected
for the purpose of supporting a few
schools for the rich and pay a few
men fat salaries.
The people will wake up after a
while to the injustice and abolish the
institutions of higher learning ?) and
spend the money where it will do
some good.-Jasper News.


This comes from Atlanta.
"While rooting at a baseball game
between Atlanta ano Birmingham to-
day at Ponce de Leon, and laughing
at a friend of his who was having
trouble in fighting off a sparrow
which had flown into the grand stand,
Billy Wells, the biggest rooter in At-

lanta, threw back his head and opened
his mouth, and the sparrow, evidently
seeing a good opening, flew into his
mout h.
"Mr. Weils closed his jaws on the
sparrow, but opened them quickly,
and when the bird was released it
flew away twittering. leaving Mr.
Wells coughing."

Claude L'Enle, -fnokuced candi-
date for the United States senatorship
from this state, paid Miami a visit
Considerable regret was expressed
that he did not come in the promised
way. but arrived by the ordinary
means of a railroad train.
Nevertheless, Mr. L'Engle occupied
himself-by industriously circulating
his "Message to the Democratic Peo-
ple of the State of Florida," which, by
the way, is one of the best prepared
political documents that has been
sent out by a candidate in the state
for many a long day.
Whatever the press have said about
Mr. L'Engle, and it has had occasion
to say considerable, in times past, and
will probably be compelled to say
laore in the future, it will be conced-
ed that Mr. L'Engle has gone about
bis campaign in a dignified way, and
presents a message that will com-
mand attention.
It would be the height of folly to
treat Mr. L'Engle's candidacy as a
joke. He must be dealt with as se-
riously as any other man who goes
before the people with as carefully
prepared statement of his beliefs as
does Mr. L'Engle in his message.
He lays down three elemental
things which he believes: The peo-
ple's right to rule; the people's abil-
ity to rule; the people's determination
to rule.
ElaboratiLg on these he declares
for the initiative and referendum and
the recall; direct nominations by pri-
maries; no compromise with the re-
publicans; government alone issuing
money; tariff for revenue only, the
rights of states to regulate their own
affairs, and against federal and judi-
cial usurpation.
Of course there is nothing new or
original in all this, and there is not
a single statement of belief that could
not be and is not subscribed to by
every good democrat.
But a gentleman of good appear-
ance, fine manners and an impressive
way of talking, who goes over the
state giving out so well a prepared
document as this message, is bound
to create favorable impression for,
himself and make voters.
The L'Engle proposition should be
taken seriously and not treated alto-
gether as a Joke-it may be loaded.-

The Weekly Banner of August 20th
came to me here this morning, and
while It was like a letter from home,
I was surprised and grieved to see
that you were getting to be a kick-
er, a knocker, a man to decry pro-
gress and improvement. You say,
"The native don't stand much show."
I am quite willing to admit this to be
quite true, so long as the native will
not keep up with the progress of the
present age, and want to keep to the tch
old beaten path, blazed and marked
out by the fathers of half a century
ago. "If the young man matrimonial-
ly inclined' will store his mind with
useful knowledge and keep in touch
with the progress and customs of the
day, he will be received by the fair Our
sex and shown as much consideration
as any man imported from other
states, but if he will wear clothes out
of style and be proud of his back-

you blame the girls? As a political
preferment, I believe our Sim Sis- U ow
trunk is a native. How long has he
had a good office? And I believe he
can retain that office as long as he
makes the efficient clerk that he has
made in the past. As to animals, I
believe you know more. about men
than you do about animals, and for
that reason you can be excused, only W iw
you should not express such positive
opinions about matters and things
when you do not possess knowledge.
The razorback has been tried, been

no returns for the food eaten. I well

Flewellen at Mclntosh put some ra-

He even gave them a board floor, and
he fed them all kinds of feed, corn, K
slop, pumpkins, and he was fortunate
in having cassava that fall, so he va- Ke p
ried the feed. They ate, but all to no
purpose-they would not fatten, so he
turned then- out. As to the native
cow, I grant you she, like a few of
the native men-Sistrunk, for in- ',
stance-does appreciate good living
and does improve, but unlike Sistrunk
in another way, she cannot equal the Poste d

to admit that the imported hog or
