The Tallahassee Weekly True Democrat was established on March 3, 1905, by John G. Collins. The "True Democrat", as it briefly called itself, explained that its name showed dedication to the "true and tried doctrines of The Old Time distinguished from...mischievous fads and fallacies of the day." Though not intended, never more true words have been spoken on newspaper title changes! Milton A. Smith bought the Weekly True Democrat in 1908. In February 1912, the paper started publishing as the Semi-weekly True Democrat . In 1913, it reverted to a weekly again under the title of the Weekly True Democrat . On April 6, 1915, the newspaper became the Daily Democrat . Frequency of publication dictated another change of title later that year when the Daily Democrat became the Weekly Democrat . Sometime thereafter, exact dates are not known, the Weekly Democrat became the paper of record for the state’s capital, and the title changed to the Weekly Democrat and Florida Record to reflect this development. If ever it was a record for Florida, it would have been a digest, since both the Florida House and Senate have maintained continuous and detailed recordings of their deliberations. Today, the same newspaper is known as the Tallahassee Democrat . Because Tallahassee is the seat of Florida’s state government, the True Democrat has been quoted copiously in journal articles and theses. Of particular note is its usefulness in tracking Jim Crow behaviors in the early 20th century. During this period, African Americans constituted about 80 percent of the population in Leon County, and white supremacists felt particularly threatened. The True Democrat, whatever its name, would come to influence--and some might argue, make mischief with--the State of Florida’s democratic processes and the deliberations of the legislature. While it may have shown leanings toward one party or another throughout its history, the newspaper has been affiliated with neither the Democratic nor Republican party but can be said to have exerted its influence on each.

it bills proloming appropriations aggre-
,ating $X16,.5d), while there is only

Whether tuberculosis and consump-
tion are one and the aame and wheth-
or that disease is hereditary became
almost an aeste question during the
initial day of the American Anti-Tu-
berculosis League's annual mseelon in
Atlanta, Ga., Monday.
With a delegation running up Into.
the hundreds In attendance and with
a gallery lined with handsomely.gown-
ed women, Dr. Brown, president of the
league, after dropping his gavel at 10
o'clock In the morning, called upon
Rev. Dr. B. H. Holt to Invoke the di-
vine blessing upon the body and Its
President Brown, at the conclusion
of the prayer, Introduced to the league
Governor Terrell, saying that by that
distinguished Georgian the delegates
from without the state would be made
most welcome to the good old com-
monwealth, which had always had a
forefront In every movement, since
the days of the revolution, in which
the nation had been benefited. Refer-
ring to the fact that it was Gov-
ernor Terrell who, as chief executive,
made Georgia the first state in the
union to officially recognize the Amer-
Ican Anti-Tuberculosis League, Pres-
ident Drown resumed his chair.
Governor Terrell, in a few well
turned sentences, briefly welcomed the
league to the Empire State of thb
South. He made reference to the
high esteem, high regard and the
great affection the physician was held
by all persons, whether learned or
Ignorant. He pointed to the eminent
men Georgia had given to medicine,
men who had become known nation-
ally, and with pride he pointed to the
fact that it was a Georgian, Dr. Craw-
ford Long, who gave to the world an-
aesthesla. The attention of the audi-
ence was centered upon the governor

finished, and then the applause Indi-

Hon. Clark Howell extended Atlan-
ta's welcome to the visitors. Mr.
Howell assured the delegates that At-
lanta was always glad to greet and to
entertain men of great knowledge and
of merit. He paid a compliment to
the profession and made -eference to
the great work the league has under.
taken. He assured his hearers that
the eyes of the world were upon their
deliberations, and asserted that re-
ports of the proceedings would be
read in every town and city of the
country with the greatest Interest.
Robert P. Maddox, president of the
chamber of commerce, welcomed the
visitors to Atlanta.
As president of the state board of

British naval men comment on the
lack of secrecy regarding Adfiral RoJ-

rival In Far Eastern waters. The fect
that he is keeping to the main trade
route, although knowing him squadron
would be constantly sighted and re-
ported by passing vessels, they con-
sider, clearly shows that the Russian
admiral is keenly anxious to get at
Admiral Togo and fight it out to a

Quality of the Men Who Are Pre'

8y Everett P. TomUnson.

ROM these opinions, facts and figures certain coneclusl.ongI
I ;can be drawn that shed light upon the problem.
There is no real "dearth" of students for the ministry.
There Is a slight back-set at the present time, but It is not
so great as has occurred in other years, aad reports of at-
- ---- tendance of students in the theological seminaries, when
compared with similarr reports of 25 years ago, show a
marked and marvelous Increase.
In some quarters there is a deterioration In the quality
of students, but the reports are not altogether unanimous. Methodists and
Episcopalians report a decided increase in numbers and in quality, and other
religious bodies vary in localities and colleges in this respect.
There is a marked change in the sources of supply. The west and
south provide a much larger proportion of students than the east. The re-
sponse is greater in the newer regions than in the old, in the country than in
the city, in the small churches than In the larger. There is also a steadily
increasing drift away from the seminaries located in the country to those
that are located In or near the large cities.
The chief causes keeping yowug men from the ministry are the poverty
of the calling, the fear of the lack of intellectual and moral freedom, the con-
viction that the petty outwleghs the larger In the work, and the suspicion of
the present "beneficiary system" which casts a blight over all. "Heresy," or
the fear of its smirch, is the greatest obstacle.
There is a practically unanimous report of a higher type of life and of
more Christian students in our colleges than ever before.
The deepest interest of the communities now is in questions that might be
termed spiritual rather than religious, certainly not theological. Theology as
a "science" has given place to Christianity as a life. The church as an organ-
ization has a weaker hold, while at the same time there is a greater interest
In all vital questions and affairs. As a consequence what our forefathers
heard as a distinctive "call to the ministry" is now finding expression In other
and widely varied forms of service.
There Is a blottingmout of the former false distinction between "secular"
and "sacred." Whatever men may think as to certain men or peoples, all his-
tory is now believed to lie "sacred," and every day and every honest work
as "holy." This fact has led many earnest young men, who In former years
night have belie.'ved themselves to he "called" to the work or the ministry,
now to believe that they can make their lives count for as much, perhaps
more, if they give themselves to other lines of work that at one time were
termed "secular."

One of the Not Uncommon Dangers
of Mo rn Life.
One of tho new and not uncommon
dangers of modern life is that of get-
ting in the way of a powerful current
of electricity and receiving the entire
discharge through the body. The ef-
fects of such a discharge vary, of
course, with the strength of the cur-
rent; there may be a simple sharp
muscular contraction, accompanied by
the familiar disagreeable sensation of
an electric shock; itese contractions
may be repeated several times after
the current has ceased, constituting
true convulsions. or they may be a
persistent continued muscular contrac-
tion; there may be suspended respira-
tion while the heart continues to beat;
both heart and respiration may cease,
In which case death will speedily fol-
low utnlo~s instant medical relief is
at hand; or in still other cases, death
may he instantaneous.
The first care is, of course, to free
the person from contact with the live i
wire, and here great caution Is neces-
sary, or the giver of assistance may
share the fate of the one he Is trying
to help. He must himself be Insulat-
ed before touching the victim's body.

of the current, and this is especially
Important if the accident has happen-

should be taken also not to let any
part of the body other than the hands,
or rather one hand, touch the electri-
fled person.

sufferer away from the source of elec-
tricity, and if not It will be necessary
