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.
Dates or Sequential Designation:
Vol. 1, no. 1 (Mar. 3, 1905)-v. 7, no. 52 (Feb. 16, 1912).

rom thA above extract, one selected
from many, we see in our exchanges
from masy other cities and towns, It
will be sen that Tallaahe o is not the
only plan that has grievances against
the companies that are supposed to, but
which donot always let theirlight shine
brightly for the public good. There is
lote of complaint against the Tallshas-
see Electric Light Plant as well aM
against the Gas Company, for very fre-
quently the lights are not lighted on some
of the streets, and the tax-payers of
this city pay for it too, Just as they
have to pay the gas company for the
gas they ecsume The True Democrat
believes everything being oven, the city
owning the electric light plant it should
be patronised liberally and as exten-
sively as our bstslne men and resi.
deota can possibly afford, so as to make
It a good paying public investment anr
then demand first-elam service from
even our own electric light plant. Tal-

What a Sag is to a nation a varsity
er is to a colge man. Like a bam
NWr, a vanity letter is clustered around
with emsdl sand tragedies. with
yeSrialm and heartburnings. The
"H" or Harvard, the "Y" of Yale. the

S ofO the various other colleges and

lo wi ever occar to others. And
nre are strict rules, and conditions

Every Harvard athlete who wins as
"H" sweater must obey the unwritten l
rule of that uniulversity-the rule which
says succinctly that an "11" sweater
must not be displayed sare on the field
of action. Even in such appropriate
places It ought not to make Its appear-
anee with exceaae frequency. On or-
dinary occastons good taste at Har-
vard Insires a varsity athlete to wAar
a clam or prep scool sweater. At
Yale a 'Y" man. If be be a modest
fellow generally. may appear evm in
Chapel street in his "Y" sweater, but
that sort of thing at Cambrid te s ab-
osmiltely prohibited.
It Isl generally thought that the man
who would display his "H" It te
streets or in the *yard". Is the sort of
man who wishes people to know that
he has dooe something. Therefore. the
argument rum. he Is the sort of maa
wh should feel the force of the Sen-
oral compt.

Of late years the cu tm has grown

of which are small "T's."
The hockey men,. who are strongly In

2 Word About


We are compoundlag more and more each week. MA
people have found that here they can always get ja
what the prescription calls for, just at the time we piN

pure drugs, but we go further, and use pure drugs of tl
best quality. Even the very cheapest drug. may be th
purest of their kind-we don't use that kind Try us.

"A Merry Christmas I"
"Merry Christmas and many happy
returns ot the season I"
These are the wishes that we hear ut-
tered on every side' by young and old,
rich and poor, all full of sincerity and
desirous that God's blessings, moral
and material, shall be meted out in sup-
einabundance to every household in the
land. Christmas tresa whose green
branches are laden with toys, tooth.
some dainties and confections, and also
with gifts for the merry youngsters
and the aedate older folk, glistening
with tinsel and tiny wax candles are in
evidence in the homes of the well-to-do,
as well as in those where there is an
eternal struggle to scrape along, the
only difference in the trees being their
sise and adornments. This is the day
when, of all others in the year, every
heart is open and those who are com-
fortably fixed and beievoiently inclined
seek out the abodes of poverty to bring
to them substantial evidences of Christ-
mas cheer and Christmas though*ful-
ness. In the homes and institutions
for the orphans and the destitute, even
in the jails and penitentiaries where
the erring are confined the anniversary
of the birth of the Redeemer is observ-
ed in ways that gladden the hearts of
their inmates.
The festival of Christmas is regarded
as the greatest celebration throughout
the eelesiastical year, and so important
and joyous a solemnity is it deemed that
a special exception is made in its favor,
whereby in the event of the anniver-
sary falling on a Friday, that day of the
week, under all other circumstances a
fast, is transformed to a festival.
A notable question which has been
long and eagerly agitated again crops
up, and we are asked, "Is the 26th of
December really the day on which our
Savior first showed himself in human
form in the manger at Bethlehem ?"
The evidence which we possess regard-
ing the date is not only traditional, but
likewise conflicting and confused. In
thi earliest periods of which we have
any record of the observance of Christ-
as we find that some communities of
Cht celebrated the festival on
the 1st or 6th of January; others on
the 29th of March, the time of the Jew-
ish Passuver; while others it is said, ob-
served it on the 29th of September, or
Feast of Tabernacles.
There can be no doubt, however, that
long before the reign of Constantine, in
the fourth century, the season of the
New Year had been adopted as thepe-
nriod for celebrating the Nativity, though
a difference in this respect existedin
the practice of the eastern and western
churches, the former observing the 6th
of January, and the latter the 26th ot
The custom of the western church at
last prevailed, and both the eclesiasti-
cal bodies agreed to hold the anniver-
sary on the same day. The fixing of
the date appears to have been the act
of Julius r, who presided as Pope from
887 to 862 A.D. The circumstance is
doubted by Mosheim, but is confirmed
by St. Chrysostom, who died in the be-
ginning of the fifth century. Thiscele-
brated father of the church informs us
in one of his epistles, that Julius. on the
solicitation of St. Cyril of Jerusalem,
caed strict inquiries to be made on
the subject, and thereafter, following
what seemed to be the best authenti-
cated tradition, settled authoratively

In certain parts of Austria they put

Child may not stumble in passing
through the village. There is also a
widespread opinion that a pack of
wolves which wre no other than
wicked men transformed into wolves,
committed great havoc on Christmas
night. Taking advantage of this super-
atition, it was not unusual lor rogues
disguised in wolf skins to attack honest
people, rifle their houses, sack their
cellar, and drink or steal all their beer.
As a specifc charm no doubt, against
those wolfish depredatlons, it was cue-

As soon as the evening star appears
above the horisan, a colatzia, or sup-
per, is served. A long table is cov-
ered with straw. Over this a cloth is
laid, on which the samovar is placed,
together with fish prepared in different
ways, and different kinds of cakes. The
feast begins by dividing the blessed wa-
fer, a small portion of which is given to
each person. This is a sacred ite, in
which none dare refuse to partiepate.

In no land is Christmas more general-
ly celebrated than in Scandinavia. Peace
and good will are the order of the sea-
son. The courts are closed, old quar-
rels are adjusted, and feuds are forgot-
ten. A pretty symbol of the spirit that
reigns is the Yule-night practice, of
placing in a row every pair of shoes in
each household, typifying that during
the year the family will live together
in ae and harmony.
adinavia is especially the land of
the Yule-logr of Christmas stories, and
legends of Thor and Odin. Then is the
time for skating, sledding, dancing and
a general frolic. It is customary for
every member of the family to take a
bath on the afternoon preceding Christ-
mas, and oftimes it is the only thorough
bath that is received during the year.
When the eve comes, the Bible is read
in nearly every household, and family
service is held. In many villages can-
dies are left burning in the windows all
night to give light to Kristine, who
brings the gifts. It is also the custom
to set a cake of meal out in the snow as
a Christmas offering. The birds of the
air are thought of, and a sheaf of wheat
is placed on a pole in front of each house
to provide them with food.
On Christmas evening are the usual
games. They are more than likely to
be interrupted by a knock at the door
and the entrance of four or five boys
dressed in white. One carries a colored
star shaped lantern, and another an or-
namental glass box containing two
dolls repreentiag the Virgin and
Child. The boys chant a carolor two,
and after partaking of refreshments
are dismissed, to coatlnue on their
Journey to the next house. The games
are likely to be interrupted again by
the coming of another band of merry-
makers. This time it is masked per-
formers, wearing tattered uniforms
decked with tinsel, and carrying wood-
on swords. They perform tricks and
pantomine, and go through a mock
military review. These performances
are always enjoyed, and the performers
never go away from a house emty-
handed. The festivities do not cloe
until a late hour.
