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.

But you must not fail to come out to

Prof. Calhoun of Florida College for
Women, having been asked by Mr.
Wideman to tel something of Lee as
an educator related a convention
whceh occurred between them when
Lee was President of the Washington
University. Mr. Calhoun for some rea-
son had cut two recitations. One day
he received a summons, to President
Lee's office. With fear and trembling
he answered the summons. Mr. Lee
said to him, "Mr. Calhoun, I believe
you have two recitationsa unexcused?"
"Yes sir." "Haveyou any excuse for
them?" "No air." "Do you think
your mother would approve of you cut-
ting recitations in this manner?" "I
don't know sir." "Well, I know she
would not like it." All this was said
in an even tone and yet it had the de-
aired effect. Prof. Calhoun said that
he never cut any more recitations.

Dangers of a Coel and Now to Aveid
More fatalities have their origin In or
result from a cold than from any other
cause. This fact alone should make
people more careful, as there is no dan-
ger whatever from a cold when it is
properly treated in the beginning. For
many years Chamberlain's Cough Rem-
edy has been recognized as the most
prompt and effectual medicine in use
for thin disease. It acts on nature's
plan, loosens the cough, relieves the
lungs, opens the secretions and aids na-
ture in restoring the system to a
healthy condition. Sold by all drug-
gist. -- *
The building of a Governor's mansion
will co't the State upwards of $26,000.
Iere is a chance for some of the howl-
ers about the cost of the University to
get in their work. There are many
States that have twice the population
of Florida that have no Governor's
house, and of the entire list over thirty
governors draw no larger salary than
the governorr of this State. -Gaines-

A Tragic Finish.
A watchman's neglect permitted a
leak in the great North Sea dyke,
which a child's finger could have stop-
ped, to become a ruinous break, devas-
tating an entire province of Holland.
In like manner Kenneth Mclver, of
Vanceboro, Me., permitted a little cold
to go unnoticed until a tragic finish was
only averted by Dr. King's New Dis-
covery' He writes: "Three doctors
gave me up to die of lung inflammation,
caused by a neglected cold; but Dr.
King's New Discovery saved my life."

question, "What do yew tnkof our
Stat?, slaes I settled within her bor-
doera ar two yeas ago, that I shall,
through to courtesy extended me by
the enterprisg editor, give my answer
to the above question in the colunms of
this most exceleAnt paper.
Take but On glance at the boundless
wealth of tb Stateo as it lies hidden in
her natural resources; the vast acreage
of grazing land, over which roam the
thousands of range cattle; the thous-
ands of acres of (at least) semi-fertile
soil, where there springs forth, by the
aid of light fertilizing, the abundance of
cotton, corn, potatoes, cane and other
like products; the thousands of aseres of
fruit orchards, teeming with luscious
fruit, sufficient to meet the demands of
a king; still yet a vast acreage where
"the melons smile upon the vine;" nu-
merous lazy lakes abounding with fish;
navigable streams where ply goodly-siz-
ed steamers; thousands of miles of
coast line, where, on every incoming
tide, hundreds of dollars are thrown
upon her shores in the form of salt fish;
vast boundaries of timber land, where
fortunes lie hidden in the finest timber
on earth; considering the age of the
State and her opportunities as good
schools and churches as could be ex-
pected; a most kind and hospitable peo-
ple; the finest climate on earth; bdt lit-
tle sickness; a fairly good government,
and sunshine all the year, Florida hangs
as a promising bud upon this national
rosebush, and with a little care, a little
more of the spirit of enterprise, a
deeper religious interest; trained by a
little improved educational system with
better school houses and higher educa-
tional ideals; protected by good legisla-
tion; favored as she is and developing as
she is this State of Florida (in our opin-
ion) is destined to bloom out in the near
future as the most beautiful and grand
of any State in the Union.
God give us God-fearing people saved
from sin and redeemed by the blood of
Jesus Christ. Amid all the mad rush
of worldly affairs, let us not forget to
honor God and look well after His king-

Some criticism has been madeof lateo
Governor Folk of Missouri for his eow
mutation to imprisonment for life of
tho death sentence passed upon one
Bailey for murdering a "scab," and at
least one brilliant newspaper, which is
always the organ of capital, contrasts
Mr. Folk's action unfavoasably with that
of Governor Hoch of Kansas, who re-
fused to pardon a man condemned to
six months' Imprisonment for injury to
a "scab." Such a criticism shows how
far habitual bias may go. The Hoch
case is one of short imprisonment upon
unquestioned facts. What resemblance
has such a case to that of a man sen-
tenced to death on testimony which
later was admitted to have been per-
jured? Mr. Folk we take to be a brave
man, and his own conclusions on the
case must appeal to the unbiased mind.
"I believe," he says, "that a labor
union man should be punished for his
crimes just like anybody else, but I do
not think it right to hang a man merely
because he is a union man, irrespective
of the facts. To have yielded to the
demands of those who fiendishly clam-
ored for the man's life when the evi-
dence did not, in my opinion, show that
he deserved death, would have been in-
human; to have allowed them to quench
their thirst for his blood, in order to
gratify their wish for an example to be
held upto terrorize labor organizations,
would have been cowardly. I think a
laboring man is entitled to the same
rights before the law as anyone else-
no more and no less. If this man had
not been a labor union man there would
have been no one demanding the forfeit
of his life, and there would have been
no criticisms, attacks, and misrepre-
sentation of motives because he was not
As much has been madeof the Bailey
case by the extreme enemies of union
laber, it is important, in order that jus-
tice be done to Mr. Folk, that the facts
be understood. The Federation of La-
bor did not, as has been charged, make
any appeal to the governor in his be-
half, or utter any threat that ever
reached his ears. Citizens pleaded for
the condemned man's life--some of them
belonging to unions, some opposed to
union labor. Representatives of pow-
erful organizations of capital asked for
Bailey's death as a warning to future
strikers. Bailey, two other men, and a
woman of the town, during a hack
drivers' strike in Kansas City, took a
ride in a carriage. When they reached
their destination a dispute arose be-
tween the driver and the passengers,
with the result that Ferguson, the driver
of the carriage, was killed. The only
substantial testimony against Bailey
was the dying declaration of Ferguson
and the evidence of the woman. The
case was tried at a time of popular ex-
citem-nt, and was bitterly prosecuted
by the Employers' Association through
attorneys employed by them. There
was a verdict of murder in the first de-
gree. Afterward it was learned that
Ferguson, instead of being a peaceable
and good citizen, as appeared at the
trial, was an ex-convict and wanton des-
perado. The woman, whose testimony
to planned murder principally convicted
Bailey, admitted in the presence of a
dozen trustworthy witnesses that she
had lied! Of the eleven surviving ju-d
rors, all, on learning these facts, begged
for commutation. Likewise did the
prosecuting attorney. On such facts it
is that a few hardy friends of capital
say that Folk was afraid to execute the

interesting Incident that came under
his observation:
Being on a walking tour through In-

Lough Swilly, the romantic Lake of
Shadows, he noticed an Immense gath-
ering of rooks on the sandy bshore. In
company with several others, the tour.

of It. An old man who was working In
a field near the place offered an expla-
nation. He said that the birds were
picking up sand to ballast themselves
In a storm and that when they did so
It was a sure sign of approaching bad
weather. He added that on shooting
rooks after a gathering of the sort be
had found that they were loaded with
sand. As a matter of fact, the gentle-
man concludes, a violent gale set In

In publbb og some time now dsix
pages of letters from bankers and oth-
ers throughout the South indiatin a
wondedrfl advame in the value of farm
laa? the Ma are's Reenl said:
"While t is true that the lndstrial
develOpnt of the South is going for-
ward with amazing rapidity, t isney
ertheless true that, by virtu of the
extent of the agricultural interests of
the South, agriculture is yet th foun-
dation of the business of that section.
A change from poverty to prosperity
of the farmers, and a chan from land
without a selling value to land in de-
mand at an advance of 60 to 150 per
cent over the nominal price of one or
two years ago, is the most far-reaching
development in Southern advancement
of the last quarter of a century. It is
far-reaching in many ways. It means
that within the last year or two South-
ern farm properties have increased not
less than $1,000,000,000 in value, prob-
ably at least $1,500,000,000.
"Hut more than that, it means that
under this improved financial condition
the Southern farmer has gained new
courage, new backbone; that he has
learned how to market his cotton crop;
that he has fought to a finish the great
battle as to whether the producer or
the speculator is to control the price of
his staple. Having won this fight, the
entire handling of cotton from the field
to the factory, whether the factory be
in this country or in Europe, has enter-
ed upon an entirely new stage in its
history. It also means that land will
be more thoroughly cultivated, for the
successful man, whether he be a far-
mer, a merchant or a manufacturer, is
always better able to work to good ad-
vantage than the one who is fighting a
losing battle. During the last six years
the total value of the cotton crop, in-
cluding seed, has been $3 600,000,000,
against $2,190,000,000 for the preceding
six of over $1,400,000,000. It is not,
however due to this great increase in
cotton alone that the Southern farmer
is in better shape. More and more
have fruit-growing and truck-raising,

$1,000,000, most of It bekmging to far-
mers, whereas ten year. ago there was
only one bank with deposits of $125,000.
Another in the same State reports sles
of farms in his section at a heavy ad-
vance, and gives as illustrations one
case where a farm increased increased
in selling price from $3,600 to $8,070,
and another from $7,200 two years ago
to $20,000 a few months ago as indica-
tive of the general conditions.
"In Alabama land which sold five
years ago at $3.50 to $5 an acre is now
reported as bringing $15 to $20 an acre,
and in one part of the State there has
been, it is reported, an increase in the
past two years of 50 to 200 per cent.
"Throughout the central South it is
very generally stated this increase is
due mainly to the increasing prosperity
of the farmers and very largely brought
about by the advance in cotton, cotton
lands selling to a considerable extent
on the basis of the price of cotton. In
some parts the increase is also in part
due to immigration, but this has as yet
been a comparatively small factor ex-
cept in Arkansas, Texas and other of
the more southerly and southwestern
States. In the tobacco districts of Ten-
nessee, where the growers have made
with equal success the same character
of fight for better prices that the cot-
ton growers have made, there is report-

"*The realisatio by the people of th
entire South, bankers, merchants and
farmers, of the power of cooperation
in the proper handling and marketing
of the two great staples, cotton a0
tobacco, has brought about a commun-
ity of interests which is destined to ex-
ert a very great influence upon the en-

The Grip.
"Before we can sympathize with
others, we must have suffered our-
selves." No one can realize the suffer-
ing attendant upon an attack of the
grip, unless he has had the actual ex-
perience. There is probably no disease
that causes so much physical and men-
tal agony, or which so successfully de-
fies medical aid. All danger from the
grip, however, may be avoided by the
prompt use of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. Among the tens of thousands
who have used this remedy, not one
case has ever been reported that has
resulted in pneumonia or that has not
recovered. For sale by all druggists.

ElectleM s This Tear.
This is the "off" year in politics, but
notwithstanding this many important
offices will have tobe filled. In Volusia
county we will have the privilege of
voting for:
A member of Congress to succeed
Frank Clark.
One member of the State Railroad
Five members of the Board of County
Three members of the County School
State Senator.
Two members of the House.
Tax Assessor.

County Treasurer.
County Surveyor.
And to fill any other elective office
which may become vacant by Novem-
ber 1.
The members of the Board of County
Commissioners will have control of, be-
sides the regular county taxes, a spec-
ial levy of 4 mills for the building of
hard roads. Only conscientious, busi-
ness men should be elected to these
offices. It is not yet known how many
of the present board will offer them-
selves as candidates for re-election.
The next Legislature will have before
it several questions of great moment
to the people. The citizens of Volusia
county should decide what they wish to
do with reference to the school system-
how much they wish the State to spend
for so-called higher education; whether
they are willing for the common schools
to be sacrificed for colleges; and, if so,
should instruct their representatives as
to how they should vote on such matters.
The Governor of the State has under-
taken to drain a portion of the Ever-
glades, thus rendering tillable several
million acres of land. To acsomplish
this, the State will be compelled to
spend a great deal of money; and, when
these lands are ready to be put on the
market, it is probably the intention of
the Governor to offer them for sale in
small tracts as the government lands
in the Indian reservations have been
offered. If such is the case, thousands
and tens of thousands of new settlers
will be brought into the State and be-
gin the cultivation of this public area.
If the people of Volusia county desire
to uphold the Governor in this under-
taking, they should send to the Legis-
lature representatives who will act in
sympathy with him and thus advance
the interests of the State and of the
people in general.
The State Committee will probably
meet in February or March and set a
date for the primary at which officers
will be nominated -DeLand News.
An old negro gives this explanation
of why the negro is black and has to do
heavy labor. He says that the Lord
made three men out of the dust of the
earth and they were the color of the
earth. He led them to a beautiful,
,deep pool of water and commanded
them to jump in. One jumped in im-
mediately and was washed white. Then
after hesitating another leaped in, but
the water had been stirred up some
and he came out red like clay and was
an Indian. Then the last' jumped in,

placed three boxes, one large one, one
smaller one, and one very small one,
and told them that those boxes con-
tained the implements with which they
should work and make their living, and
to chose for themselves The nigger
not to be last this time (greedy like all
\ niggers) grabbed the big box which
contained plows, hoes and other tools
for heavy work. The Indian took the
next largest and got bows and arrows
The small light box was left for the
white man, and when it was opened it
was found to contain a pen, ink and
paper, and it has been just dat way
ever since down to dis day. DeLand

There is for us a fearful fascinantimon
in looking ckaely into this awfdl mUm,
and selerting it into its component
parts or, be it known, there are
lies and lee; and this haunting leap
which ous.rueLa our backward trned
glance is composed of several varieties
of lies of dilferiig magnitudes and
shades of coloring Having an eye for
the artistic, we will arrange them in
the form of a neat pyramid.
Most prominent in the collection---so
densely dark that by its side the black-
est tom-ci.t might be mistaken for
Mary's little lamb-a great slab, form-
ing a iu 'tblc foundation for our pyra-
mid-are tue lies direct, whereby we
have represented ai "enterprising citi-
ztns" a lot of mnosbacks who pretend
to be in business and yet haven't spent
98 cents in advertising the past year.
We next lay on-by means of a hoist-
ing machine-a nice lock of lies, com-
posed of remarks anent the taking off
of sundry deceased citizens, some of
whom we have lauded to the skies,
when in fact they left here with a
though ticket for a land in the oppo-
site direction.
And here is another good chunk of
the "energetic and deserving young
man" variety. This is formed of lies
told of a lot of long-necked dudes,
whose highest exhibition of energy con-
sisted of sucking cigarettes, and who
are "deserving"-of a good swift kick!
There is a solution of "accepted a po-
sition" mixed up with this lot which
acts as a cement to hold it in place for
our pyramid
By arranging several mixed lots of
lies, which enables us to give a mottled
granite finish to some sections of our
structure, we reach the apex or crown-
ing block of the pile. For this we have
a tremendous amount of material, but
as it is light and airy we will perhaps
be able to compress it suitable
bulk. These lies are practically white,
and only a very morose sort of angel
would weep over them- for they are
those which refer to the supposed charms
and accomplishments of woman!
For, know all men by theme presents,
when it comes to making the ladies
beautiful, the newspaper has the beauty
doctors skinned a block; and in the
matter of bestowing accomplishments
there is not an institution in the land
can hold a candle to it. Given a slab-
sided old girl who has p dressed
in the spelling book as far as "baker"
and she will emerge from the reportor-
ial pen a Vassar Venus. So we deck
the top of our pyramid with these little
lies, multitudinous and ornamental-
and" there you arel
Repentant? Not us! During the
coming year we expect to manufacture
matenal for a still more imposing mon-
ument. For after awhile perhaps, the
mossbacks will get ashamed of being
lied about, and will really be imbued
with a little enterprise. "De mortius
nil nisi bonum," and oeing a news-
paper we can't say nil And as for the
ladies, dear hearts! they're all lovely
to us and he were buut a. graceless cur
who would not stretch the blanket of
truth in their behalf!
Anyway, don't the Lord love a cheer-
ful liar?-Lakeland Sun.

Gov. Broward was looking for a real
thing anti-monopolist to attend the Na-
tional Anti-Monopoly League. He
found him fern'nst his elbow in the
person of his private secretary, Jemmet
Wolfe, and so his excellence dictated a
letter to Jemmet like this: "Dear Jem-
met-After looking all up and down the
State and draining' the everglades fer
to find a anty -monopolist, wan that is
a real smooth guy. with lit'ry ability
and a tongue tapped with silver; whose
head is at want clean and nutty, and
whose heart beats strong and clear and
regular-like, my mind returns to you,
me gazzoon, and I hereby appoint you
me delegate in the earnest hope that
you will embrace this opportunity to
help the people f, r to forget that you
were wanst a anty-monopoly holder of
primary reform principles who got him-
self lont in an attempt to bull the
market."- Palatka News.
Rev. W. M. Poage preached on the
subject of "Prayer" in the 11 o'clock
service Sunday morning. He took for
his text a portion of the 3rd chapter of
2nd Thessalonians "Finally, brethren,
pray for us, that tOe word of the Lord
may hive free coj-rse, and be glorified
even as it is with you; and that we may
bo delivered f on unreasonable and
wicked men, for all men have not
faith." In the course of his remarks
he quot -d the'e b autiful lines of Ten-
nyson':". More things are wrought
by prayer than this world dreams of."
For what are men better than sheep or
goats that nourish a blind life within
the brain. If, knowing God. they lift
not hands of prayer, both for them-
selves and those who call them friend?
For so the whole round earth is every
Bound by chtins of gold about the feet
of God.

The New Orleans Daily States of
Jan. 16th contains the following arti-
cle: "A little excitement was caused

performance of "Not Like Other

It was then discovered that the
"bounced" one, who refused to give
his name, had hypnotism an a special
hobby and that tihe realistic scene had
worked upon his nerves to the extent
that he had fallen into a trance. The'
young man made an attempt to re-enter
the theatre last night, but was fore-
stalled. When seen he said that all his
life he had practiced the art of hypno-
tism and that he had been a subject of
one of the masters of that power for
several months. When he heard that
the leading lady was to appear in the
role of a mind reader and hypnotizer
he could not stay away from the
theatre Throughout the first three
acts he became more and more excited
until the final climax was reached and
then the stage and all faded away and
