brother of the Star's very efficient
operator, Mr. R. N. Dosh. The "South"
says of him: "Mr. Dosh is the capable
machinist-operator on the model 5
linotype in the plant of the J. W.
Burke company, Macon, Ga. This
young man has had a wide experience
in printing and linotyping, and his
model 5 produces some splendid work.
He has been connected with the Burke
company for seven years. The Burke
company handles high grade book,
catalog and commercial work, most
of which is linotyped."

"We regret very much that a cer certain

should cast aspersions upon the Hon Honorable

The fact that the grand jury did
not name the paper referred to looks

for libel itself. Its reference to a

Belleview, Sept. 29 I have just re
turned from a little journey to Polk
county, where I saw som" wonderful
things. I made a little stop of sev several
eral several hours in Plai.t City and when my
Coast Line train pulled in I was two
blocks from the depot. When I reach reached
ed reached the train it was ready to pull out,
but I told the conductor very posi positively
tively positively and emphatically that I was go going
ing going on that train and that I had not
yet bought my ticket or checked my
trunk. It is needles3 to state that I
traveled on that train and found the
conductor a perfect gentleman, like
all railroad conductors usually are.
At Lake Alfred I alighted for the
purpose ot changing cars to Winter
Haven. Now there is a peculiarity
about changing cars at Lake Alfred.
The last time I changed cars there the
train pulled out of the depot like any
well regulated train would with the
engine at the head of the procession,
and as I sat in the coach musing over
events this particular train began to
back and it kept on backing and then
backing some more, until I got un uneasy
easy uneasy and sent for the conductor and
asked him if he knew where he was
going. He told me perfectly frank
and clear that the train was headed
for Winter Haven and Bartow, and I
told him that it was going about it
the wrong way. That I thought we
were backing into Tampa, and to ver verify
ify verify his statement in a few minutes
we pulled into Winter Haven back backwards,

that on I proceeded to visit to my
Winter Haven is a very progressive
town. They have a brand new depot
and the citizens there are very proud
of it. They also have a number of
I large new brick business blocks that
are pointed to with pride. The stores
and mercantile establishments are up-to-date
and the proprietors are pro
gressive business men, wrho take a
real live interest in the welfare of
the town, and all of them without ex exception
ception exception belong to either the church or
the board of trade, a great many of
them belong to both.
The churches display a very liberal
spirit. Instead of meeting in a hot
stuffy church on a summer night,
they all with the exception of the
Catholics and Baptists, bunched to together
gether together and secured the use of the
public park for Sunday night and
each Sunday night they would hold
a union service in the open air. The
Methodist minister would discourse
one Sunday, the Christian preacher
would tell his story the next Sunday,
and so on through the Sunday each
denominational preacher would take
his turn to talk to the assembled
multitude. It was a very populai
move and the park was crowded on
I also found Southern College well
represented in this little town. The
principal of the high school is a grad graduate
uate graduate from Southern, the Methodist
preacher is a graduate from Southern
and Southern was well represented in
other lines and branches.
The real live wire in this commun
ity, the moving spirit in all popular
and progressive moves, is a man
named J. Walker Pope. He is more
than anyone else responsible for Win
ter Haven being on the map. He has
sold more real estate than any man
in that section. He knows more peo
ple than any other man in Polk coun
ty. He it was that diverted the Dixie
Highway from the main line and
switched it around the corner at Lake
Alfred so that it pointed right
straight through Winter Haven on its
way to Tampa. To him as much as
to any other man is due the fifty
miles of 15-foot wide macadam roads
throughout Polk county. Wherever
and whenever anything tending to
advance the interest of Winter Haven
and Polk county is broached there one
will find J. Walter Pope, marching in
the van, waving the flag and doing his
utmost for his home community. He
is a mover that moves things.
Winter Haven boasts of a news
paper that is a credit to itself and
surrounding country. Every now and
then it proves its progressiveness by
going out and buying in some little
weakling newspaper that mistook its
calling and thereby enlarges its cir
culation and makes it a factor in the
county. This little paper, by the
way, owns its own building, has a fine
big cylinder press, job presses and a
fine linotype machine just like the
Star has. When the writer hit the
town they gave me just two lines
which goes to prove the high price of
paper and ink.
Winter Haven boasts of a gold sea
hotel just like the Colonial in Ocala

The best method for cleansing the whole

to take as much outdoor exercise as possible, drink

into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made nearly fifty years ago, and sold by

are constantly working, separating the poisons from the blood. Uric acid backs up into the system, causing
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other serious disturbances.
This can be avoided by stimulating the kidneys to increased action, and because of its tonic effect
