that the corn crop of Florida this past

The visit of the National Farmers'
Congress to Florida was the best ad advertising
vertising advertising the state ever had. These
people went around in a part of the
state seldom seen by the average
tourist, yet its very backbone and
marrow -the farming interior, repre
sented by such counties as Alachua,
Marion and Lake. The average tour
ist chases up and down the east and
west coasts, where he finds good
roads, pretty scenery and fine hotels,
but very little farming land, and goes
home m the belief that Florida lives
on citrus fruit and yankees. But the
members of the farmers' congress
went into that part of Florida that
the rest of America has not yet dis
covered they saw the good land, the
fat .cattle and hogs and the people
who not only raise their own supplies
but have a lot left over to sell, and
they have gone home to tell their
neighbors about it. The letter we
publish elsewhere from the Smyrna,
Del., Times, is one of the proofs of
this. We understand that a number
of such letters have been published in
the country papers of the north. One
of them is worth a whole lot more to
this part of Florida than one of those
vivid magazine articles or circulars
illustrative of palms, alligators and
oranges groves that have become tame
and usual to the average northerner.
The new automobile law Is very un unjust
just unjust to visitors to the state. If a man
comes to Florida' with his car and
stays over thirty days, he must pay
for a full year's license in this state,
altho he has paid license in his own
state. This is bad policy, and hoggish
to boot. Florida is fairly reaching
out her hands for visitors, particular particularly
ly particularly those who travel in their own cars,
and the legislature steps in and vir virtually
tually virtually fines them for staying in the
state over a month.

GOING BACK TO NATURE.
BY DR. W. LUCAS. -t
People get sick because they go away
from Nature, and the only way to get
well is to go back. Something grows out
of the ground in the form of vegetation
to cure almost etfcry ill. Some of these
vegetable growths are understood by
man, and some are not. Animals, it
would eeem, know what to do when
they are sick better than men and
women. Observers have noted that a
sick horse, dog or cat will Btop eating
food and seek out some vegetable
growth in the field or yard, which, when
found and eaten, often restores appetite
and health. Haven't you seen these
animals do this very thing yourself?
Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., long
since found the herbs and roots pro provided
vided provided by Nature to overcome constipa constipation,
tion, constipation, and he had these vegetables col collected
lected collected and made np of Mayapple, leaves
of Aloe, root of Jalap, into little white
sugar -coated pills, that he called Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. You must
understand that when your intestines
are stopped up, poisons and decayed
matter are imprisoned in your system,
and these are carried by the blood
throughout your body. Thus does
your bead ache, you get dizzy, yon
can't sleep, your skin may break out,
your appetite declines, you get tired
and despondent. As a matter of fact,
' you may get sick all over. Don't yon
see "how useless all this suffering is?
