competition will be lessened and that
the truck growers of this section of
the state will have a 8ood market
for their produce. ,
While he does not believe that
there will be any radical change in
the tariff, Mr. Sparkman says he te.
lives, from the information he has
received, that there will be many
changes. These changes, however,
will not be on the schedules of rev-
enue affecting 'naterially Florida and
South Florida. The cigar and tobac-
co schedules, he says, will probably
remain the same. He gains this in-
formation from. conversing with rep-
resentatives of the several large to-
bacco concerns who were present at
the capital, and froip his fellow rep-
resentatives who were interested in
the tariff on these commodities.
While Mr. Sparkman is not in a
position to speak positively on the
various schedules affecting Florida
and South Florida commerce, he is
in possession of a sufficient amount
of information to say that there will
be no change in the tobacco and su
gar schedule or in the citrus fruit
schedule. There will be a change, he
believes, in the vegetable schedule, as
this is an item on which a hard
fight has been made. The lumber.
men, he says, are hopeful that there
will .be no reduction,' -'

Fake Prophet, Long Age Dead,

The alleged bogus burial of the
Duke of Portland as Druce makes

Some time ago a few gentlemen of

in Japan-that they might learn and

young men having learned the work,

WOMAN AND BR WAIST INE.
After enduring the discomfort of a

,tion of the line to defined best by
the Directory. It Is to be expected
ftMhlon, soon or late, will go to the
other extreme. Waists of great
length will have a brief vogue fol-
lowing which the position of the belt
will return to normal, or something
like t. It is pretty certain the deep-
ly pointed court, or Valois, corsage
will vahish with the extremely long
waist. Few points connected with
woman's dress are of more import-
/ance than the position of the waist
line. -It can make or mar the grace
of the figure. When it is too high
it produces the stilted effect abhorred
by portrait painters; If It is too low
It can make an Ahprodite look duck-
legged. Apparently the ordinary
gown4builder has more difficulty in
solving the problem of placing the
waist line than in achieving any oth-
er detail in the making of a frock.

The Loulla was tied up by the high

ed in the library. Soon after an
old friend, slightly more learned than
the rich man, came to call.
"Here, Hugh," said, the host. "Is
my library. Here Is where I intend
to sit down with my books and read."
Hugh took down a book, looked at
it and put it back; took down anoth-

repeated (he process several times.
Then he asked, "John, where did
you get these books?"
"Oh, I bought them; Just bought
them. What's the matter? Aren't
they good books? I haven't read
"They're good books," was the re-
