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.

When the Cable Piano CSmpany
was located in this city with of-
fees and store rooms about a
Cfyer ago Capt J. A. Bryan*rth
excelIent family and
Mr. G. I. & Watt, was geral
manager of it, and they made
hosta of friends o will always
remember than very kindly, and
many will now be pleased to
(earn that Capt. Bryan is now
permanently located at Tampa,
where he is doing a fine business
handling the pianos and musical
instruments of the Great Cable
Piano Co. But now to the point.
Mr. G. I. S. Watt, who was Capt.
Bryan's first assistant and help"
mate, as it were, has come back
to this city, secured the new
store room one door south of the
telegraph office, and opened up
as pretty and nice line of the
Cable Company's pianos as was
ever brought to this section. He
is now manager himself, and is
offering a Special Factory Sale of
pianos and organs for 10 days,
and invites Tallahasan and
Leon countians to visit him, in-
spect the instruments and get
prices and terms. See his splen-
did advertisements in this issue.
Mr. Watt has with him this
time Mr. R. L Eaton, who needs
no introduction to Tallahssee
ans, as assistant in sales, etc.;
also Mr. E. L. Ross, who is a
pianist of note, who will take
care of the instruments which
are disposed of at the sale.
Mr. Watt now has his pianos
on sale, and he extends a special
invitation to the public to call and
inspect them. The sale will last
ten days, selling the Conover,
Cable, Kingsbury Wellington,
and the celebrated Club Piano.
"The Palmetto," a 400 Piano
for $267, $10 cash and $6 per
Now, be sure and visit the
Cable Company's store, next to
telegraph office, and let Messrs.
Watt, Eaton and Ross show you
the Pianos, and sell you one, too.
In what peculiar manner does
a manufacturer build a piano for
this climate. He just makes
straight goods and gets an agent
with an easy conscience, one who
would not recognize the inside of
a piano if he saw it away from
the cast, and if he met the truth
in the middle of the road he
would shy at it.
A few days ago in a town not
a great distance from the court-
house, a lady who had been lis-
tening to Mr. Ross play on
the famous Mason & Hamln pi-
anos and organs, stepped into a
hardware store and inquired if
they had any Mason & Hamlin
fruit jars. The proprietor wit-
tily replied, no, that the Mason
& Hamlin had "no jars."
The Reed Organ furnished by
the Cable Company to the Epis-
copal church at Yankton, I con-
sider unrivalled. The tone is
most pleasing, the action elastic,
giving hearty response to the
\ player, and the octave coupler is
accurate and reliable. These or-
gans will prove a source of con-
stant delight to their users. -
Edward C. Hall, organist.
How often does a man in the
ordinary walks of life, in gen-
f eral conversation with those he
meets, and introduce, himself
and has business and social inter-
course with, tell the history of
his past life, and how many dif-
ferent impressions does he make.

A piano salesman who canvasses
and introduces himself to so many
every day has to be very careful
to tell the same story every time,
or be caught up with. Mr.
Ross, of the Cable Co. has ob-
viated that difficulty 'by setting
the story of his life to music, and
renders it on the piano. So many
re prone to exaggerate their own
doings and get so in the habit of
doing so that they are not aware
of it. The writer call to mind
avery excellent gentleman, a re-
ired sea captain, who entertain.
ed his friends by telling them
is epee in the timie that
S he a in different waters

and the drient ships that he
bad ailed in. His vat experi-
mence impressed his friends that
he was a nuch older man than he
seemed, so one of hisclose friends,
ust for amusement, would ask
now many years he served on
those different ships, as he would

tell it from time to time, and his
friend would set it down each
time. He soon had the captain
over 300 years old. The menoral is,
tell the truth, even if you are
selling pianos, for the people who
buy pianos will remember what
you say, and the piano will be
sure to tell on you in a few years,
if you misrepresent it. Every
piano should be sold in its own
A Wellington piano should be
sold as a Wellington, not as a
Kingsbury. A Kingsbury should
not be sold as a Cable, a Cable
should not be sold as a Conover.
Each piano has its merits and is
in a class of its own, and should
be sold in its own class.

What are the modern and quick-
est means of distributing the
news over the country? Tele-
phone, telegraph, tell-a-woman
and Cable.

What is the best secret society
to join? The Palmetto Club, be-
cause ladies can join and get the
secret. The secret that the other
piano people would like to know
is, how can The Cable Company
make such swell pianos for the
Where is the best place to buy
a piano-where you can get the
best goods for the least money?
Mr. Watt thinks that The Cable
Company is the whole thing; the
only people in the business, the
only pebble; but Mr. Ross says
that Be is not from Missouri,
but from a Little Rock in Arkan-
sas. There are others.
Berlin, Germany.--Gentlemen:
Your new styles of upright pi-
anos, containing your most inge-
nious patented improvements,
are excellent instruments. The
workmanship is fine, the touch
light and flexible, tone grand and
majestic, and the case artistic.
Why is a piano salesman such a
good fighter in competition sales?
Because he soldiers so much.

boys and girs can breathe pure fresh
mountain aOr; where the grandeur and
sublimity of the mountains far surpass
our Florida senes. The picturesque-
nea of the views around Mars Hill are
exhilarating to any student.
No doubt you have been having pleas-
ant spring weather in old Florida for
some time, but just now, up here, is the
air becoming pleasant and balmy. The
trees and flowers are just now ejecting
their winter coats and making the
world beautiful; so it is with the birds
and bees. They are singing and hum-
ming, and nature seems to be in perfect
harmony with their melody.
I have enjoyed my stay at Mars Hill
very much, and I think all Florida boys
and girls ought to try to spend at least
one year in school among the moun-
I will not forget to say that I am a
regular reader of the True Democrat.
Notwithstanding I am among the moun-
tains, the Democrat finds me.
Yours truly, ASA P. GRAY.

hemorrhages." writes A M Ake. of

several physicians without any benefit.

The Popular Liver Medicine
Wl Keep You Well

A OUARANTEED CURE for all diseases produced by TOR-
PID LIVER and IMPURE BLOOD. Do not fll your system
with Arsenic, Calomel and Quinine. They act as rank poisons
which vitiate the blood, debilitate the system. and leave a trail
of bad symptoms which require years to obliterate. HERB-
INE is purely vegetable and contains no mineral or narcotic*
poisons, is absolutely harmless and is the simple remedy of
nature. It carries off all poison in the system and leaves no
injurious effects.
Mr. L. A. Hicks, Iredell, Texas, says: I was
sick in bed for eight months with liver trouble, the
doctor seemed to do me no good. I was told to try
Ilerbine, and it cured me in a short time. I cannot
recommend this wonderful medicine too highly."
