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.

To quote the introduction in the cata-
logue of the Florida Female College:
"iThe Legislature of the State of
Florida, session 19056 passed an act
whereby all existing State institutions
for higher airing were abolished and
two colleges established in lieu thereof,
one to be known as the Florida Female
College and the other as the University
of the State of Florida (for men). This
statute vests the management of these
institutions in a board of control, to be
appointed by the governor, and to be at
all times under and subject to the con-
trol of the State Board of Education.
"Iu compliance with the law, on July
6, 1906, these colleges were located by
the Board of Control and the State
Board of Education in joint meeting,
Tallahasee being chosen as the site of
the State Colege for Women and Gaines-
villne a the location of the college for
The Board of Control then selected
faculties and adopted rules and reula-
t ions for the n management of these in-
stitutions. These rules require the
same standards for entrance and for
graduation in the school for women as
in that for men. The college for women
will therefore provide the same oppor-
tunities for higher culture, broad and
S liberl education, and for training in
the theory and art of teaching as thoe
offered at the university for men. It is
fully admitted that, by every consider-
ation of wisdom, good policy and jus-
tice, Florida women are entitled to
eoual recognition with their brothers in
advantages and opportunities to fit
themseves for ti duties of life, and
the Board of Control, without a dissn.t-
Fkrida Female College the equal of any
intitutles in the country."

The city cheried the traditi-ru of
Southern sta~ty and is equally a
famous for i6 delogful society a for
its natural beauty and charm.
"In addition to these leading charge.
teristics Tallahassee enjoys good rail-
road facilities, which ive her commu-
niaetion with all part of Florida by
means of the Seaboard Air Line Rail
way. The city is also the terminus of
three other railroads, the Carrabelle,
Tallahassee aallahasaee
Southeastern, and the a Florida
and Alabama, which brings the city
within a few hours of Atlanta, Macon
and Montgomery. As a result of this,
building is going on rapidly and the city
is increasing in wealth and population.
The capital of Florida ii delightfully
situated in the glorious hill country of
North Florida. In all the South there
is probably no more attractive region.
Its hills .are covered with forests of
pine, magnolia and oak, and with or-
chards of peaches and pears. Between
these hills nestle lakes of exquisite
beauty, tempered in the warmer weather
by cool breezes from the Gulf. From
the circle of hills on which the city is
most picturesquely situated can be en.
joyed panoramic views of the surround-
ng country. In addition to its beauty,
this region is equally noted for its health-
"Among all the towns of Florida
there is none more charming or better
adapted for the location of a female
college than Tallahassee, and the Leg-
islature made no mistake in selecting
this cityas the seatof the State Fdmale
College. The excellent supply of pure
water here, the highly moral status of
the community and the unexcelled cli-
mate, in which parents and pupils from
the North may escape from the rigors
of the northern winter appealed
strongly in Tallahassee's favor when
the 1906 session of the Legielature de-
cided to abolish all the higher institu-
tions of learning and establish in lieu
thereof the Florida Female College and
State University, and the Capital City
won. The latter, for men, is located at
Gainesville, and is headed by Professor
Sledd formerly of Emory College. The
Florida Female College is presided over
by Prof. Albert A. Murphree, formerly
president of the Florida State College.
The campus of the Florida Female
College is situated on a hill in the West-
ern suburbs of Tallahassee. The sides
and summit of the hill are beautified
with a picturesque growth of pine and
oaks, in the midst of which the college
buildings are situated. A broad avenue,
lined with majestic oaks, forms the ap-
proach from the center of the city to
the main entrance to the campus. No
more beautiful or more healthful situa-
tion than this could be desired or found
in this entire region of country. To the
south and west of the campus stretches
a panorama of green-clad hills and
sparkling lakes-a view in itself restful
to the eye and inspiring to the spirit."

For some weeks past the proprietors
of the Southern Telephone and Con-
struction Company, of this city, have
had a force of hands busily engaged
making extensive improvements in their
plant in this city and preparing for long
distance connections with tlb outside
world. They are equiping their phones
with the best that can be secured, and
it is now second to no service of its
size in the South. When It is remem-
bered that Dr. W. L. Moor and associ-
ate*, the owners of the entire system
and plant are all citizens of Taflaha*-
see, and have their capital invested in
this enterprise, its success is very grat-
ifying, and shows that they not only
have great confidence in the business
future of this city and surrounding
country, but it should be a stimulus to
others to invest their capital here in
other enterprises. There are now in
use in this city more than 260 'phones,
and the company is receiving orders
every day to add new ones.
Before many more days work on the
long distance lines will be under way,
andin a short while eitizsens and busi-
ness men of thin city can talk with the

Four offcils of the Schwarschild &
Sulsberger Packing company of Ch%
cago were fined an aggregate of $21
000 by Judge Humphrey in the UnR,
ed states district court at Chicago
Thursday. The fines followed a
plea of guilty to indictments charging
conspiracy to accept railroad rebates.
The defendants were: Samuel &l Well
of New York, vice president of th6,
company; B. S. Cussey, traffic man-
ager; Vance D. Skipworth and Charles
E. Todd, assistant traffic managers.
Mr. Well was fined $1U,000, the other
three $5.000 each.
With the entering of the plea, the
declaration was made that unless at
least one of the cases is immediately
settled, the life of Samuel Well, who

for the defendants and Attorney Gen-
eral William H. Moody.
While in Chicago. the attorney gen-
eral was apprised of the condition of
Vice President Well, and, it is said,
agreed to the entry of a plea of guilty.

indictmennt was returne, should be

"Sore Mouth"' Among Cattle.
The cattle disease which has been

tigated by Dr. C. F. Dawson, veterlna.
r!cn of the Stato Board of Health.
To a reporter of The Dally CaplttA
Dr. Dawson stated that he regarded
the disease as "mycotic stomatis," or
"'ore mouth," caused by the cattle
grazing on pastures containing acrid
plants. These cause dribbling of sa-
liva. swelling and ulceration of the
mouth parts, and finally groat lame.

and these sometimes die when the
disease is not treated.
The affection seems quite common
In the state at present. and is no
doubt due to the character of the
pastures produced by the climatic con-
ditions of the past few months.
As treatment, he advises washing
out the mouth several times a day
with alum wat.,r, one ounce of arum
to the quart of water, or with tannic
acid, one drachm to the pint of water.
or other artringent washes. Whln
Wulers form they way Le painted with
Lugot's solution cf Iodine, or with
Iodoform dissolved In ether. Similar
asTringents may 1e applied to the
feet. The feed should consist of
soft, unirritating liq **:. or semi-solid
materials. Distuirb.auces of the di-
gestive system, which may occur in
the course of the disease, should re-
ceive appropriate treatment. The ani-
inals, of course, should be removed
from the offending pasture.

Otbriel Dante Roeetti, poet and
painter, was once visited by an "ast
Indian prince who said to him:
"I wish to give you a commission
to paint a portrait of my father."
"Is your father In London?" asked
"No, my father Is dead." replied
the Oriental.
"Have you some photographs of
him or any portrait?"
"We have no portraits of him of
any kind."
"How can I paint a portrait of him.
then" asked the artist. "It is Impo*-
vible. I eiold not think of attempt.
lag anything so absurd."
"Why is It absurd ?" demanded the
prince gravely. "You paint pictures
of Mary Magdalene and Circe and
John the Baptist, and yet you have
never seen any of them. Why can
you not paint my father?"
The prince was so Insistent that
Rossetti yielded in sheer desperation.
He painted an Idel head that was
certainly Oriental and also regal in
Its bearing. The prince came to the
studio In Krest state to view It. When
the canvas was uncovered he looked
at It stueaily and then burst Into

Everybody admits that these are not

the only feasible means of producing

For generations there was s crying
need, a yearning for something better,
which was not satisfied. A few years
ago deUliverance came In the shape of
the chemical compound. Calcium Car-
bide, from whieb, by the simple appli-
cation of water, the gas Acetylene is
derived. Acetylene meets all the re-

Common lime and carbon in the form
of coke or coal are the raw ruaterlnis
which, fused In an ltensely heated

there is no difficulty In obtaining It In
any part of the country.
'The machine Into whlch the Calcium

that It surpasses all other known Illu-
minants. It does not taint the air nor
strain the eyes, and is not objection-
able in any respect. Every up-to-date
