The follUing letter appeared in a
reeeot IesO of the Crawfordville
TALLAHASSsE, April 21. 1909.
Mr. C. R. Smith, Editor Gulf Coast
Breeze, Crawfordvile, Fla. :
Dear George-Being one of the con-
etant readers of the Gulf Coast Breese,
I want to express my appreciation of
the good paper you are giving the peo-
ple of my oWd home county, and to thank
you for the many expressions of good
will towards me.
Wakulla county and her people are as
dear to me now as wntn a boy I romped
over her fields, fished in her rivers and
hunted wild ducks on her coast. In
fact, I have never been able to leave
those ducks alone, and there is no pleas-
ure that gives me more genuine satis-
faction than a duck hunt in the creeks
and bayous of the Gulf long the Wa-
kulla coast.
In my boyhood, youth an4 early man-
hood, I spent many happy days in old
Wakulla, and formed many pleasant
asociastons that I have ever cherished.
I shall always cherish tre pleasant rec-
ollections, fond remembrance of my
life in your midst, and while I live to-
day beyond the conflnei of your county
line I have always had a deep interest
in the welfare uf your county and the
prosperity of your citizens.
'rhe people of Florida h ave been good
to me in a political way, but I attribute
no small amount of my success to the
loyalty and devotion of my friends in
Wakulla county, who have, It each re-
eurring election, stood out so strongly
in favor of my retention in the public
For many years I knew Wakulla
comity as "Home." I shall never
know her people except as my friends.
I1 wish for you the greatest success
your profession. and I hope that with
succeeding Breese the, e will wome
bgger advertisements and more Mub
and better patronage gener-
rnr efforts deserve it. -W
-eq saeerely yours,_

Apprernato tSeem at th Baptist
sad Iplempel Churcohe.
In his sermon last Sunday Rev. J. i.
Pruitt, of First Baptist church, taking
his text from John 19, 26-27. paida
glowiig tribute to woman's influence,
especially at the fireide with her chil-
dren. He sketched the lives of the
women of scripture and of the early
church, and gave them honor for the
undying work performed by them for
religion and civilization. The service
concluded with a beautiful solo "The
Old Fireside," given by Mrs. Pruitt.
In St. John's Episcopal church the
rector, Rev. S. Moran, preached from
the text "He sat down on his throne
and caused a seat to be set for the
king's mother, and she sat on his right
Mr. Moran pointed out that in plac-
ing his mother upon his right hand King
Solomon had done a most royal honor to
woman and placed her on an equal foot-
ing with the highest authority in the
land. This is her rightful place. and as
the king stands for Christ, the head of
the church, so woman is the head of
that other powerful and divinely ap-
pointed institution-the home. Here
are brought out her highest and most
enduring qualities, and from
hence go out her strongest, purest in-
fluence for the uplifting and ennobling
of the nations.
At the end of his sermen Mr. Motan
recited the following beautiful poem
written by Joaquin Miller, and entitled
The bravest battle that was ever fought,
Shall I tell you where and when?
On the maps of the world you will find
It not;
'Taas fought by the mothers of men.
Nay, not with cannon or battle shout,
With sword or nobler peOn;
Nay not with eloquent words or thought
from mouths of wonderful men.
But deep in a walled-up woman's heart-
Of woman that would not yield,
But bravely, silently boreher part-
Lo, tei was the battlefield.
No mmrnaIling troops, nobivouac song,
No baener to gleam and wav*
But oh, these battles they last solong-
Frem babyhood to the gravel
Yet faithful still as a bridge of stars
She lights in her walled-up town-
Fight on and on the endless wars
Then, allet, auneen, goe down.
Oh, ye with banners and battle shout,
And soldiers to shout and praise;
I tell yop the kindliest victories fought
Were fought in these silent ways.
Oh, spotless woman In a world ofshame,
With a splendid and salient sorn
Go back to God as white an you came,
The kingliest warrior born!

From Virginias comes the information
that Colonel V. M. Johnson is a candi-.

he will be. We naturally feel this way

lectre recently even in Tallahassam
by Judge A 0. Wright. of Jaekasoville,
was left out of the i sue of The True

sne lecture, however, is men of great
value to the people of the South, to that
it tends to awaken a greater interest In

On trial for his life, Mick Morris yes-
terday pleaded guilty to the murder of
W. M. Lanuton, late sheriff of Leon
This negro, whose fate has been the
cause of so much uneasiness to the eiti-
seas of this county during the pat two
months, was brought here Monday
morning from Jacksonville, where he
has been confined since his capture in
Thomas county. Ga.. about six weeks
ago. The grand jury immediately
brought a true bill against him and his
trial was set for yesterday.
One hour's time was sumcient to
prove the prisoner's guilt beyond all
doubt. He himself corroborated the
evidence given by the State's witnesses,
and pleaded to the crime of murder in
the first degree. Whereupon Judge
Malone, without referring the case to
the jury, pronounced against him the
death lenience.
The unfortunate negro had refused
the offer made by the court of special
counsel for his defence, evidently ex-
pecting that a full confession would
gain for him some clemency, and the
unlocked for severity of the sentence
brought about a compete physical col-
For two night past sheriff and citi-
zens have been on the alert to prevent
a lynching of the negro. Sentiment in
that part of the county which was Mr.
ILangston's home, has been all along
stron ly against any delay in the aveng-
ini of his murder, and, since Morris'
return hpre, crowds of men have lin-
gered about determine n that the guilty
man should not escape. Ebulitions
have Ue-n made that required all the
tact and firmness of Sheriff Houstoun
to quell, arn it i4 th<- opinion of those
who know most about the affair that a
lynching has lb'en narrowlyy averted.
In view of these facts, about forty of
the most prominent and representative
business men of the city. including law-
yers, hank-ra, do'ttoe .nd mercnanto,
waited upon the Governor yesterday.
and, placing before him the foregoing
facts, asked him to see that no unnec.
mary delay should ocitr in fixing the
date of Morri' execution. These men
deemed it necersury for the public peace
that some expr's*neon from the Gover-
r.or should be ohtaind that would serve
to satisfy the disaffected citizens that
justice would be done as speedily as is
consistent with th", demands of decency
and merely.
Gov. Glehrist promised to take the
matter under advisement and asked that
a committed of six selected from the
delegation should wait upon him in the
executive office yesterday afternoon.
There the matter was exhaustively dis-
cussed, and the committee assured that
the execution would follow as soon as
It could be legally done.

The Doctor Whose
Patients Hang On
SBy Herbwt Kaufman.
Out in China all things are not topsy turvy.
Physicians are paid for keeping people well and
when their patients fall ill their weekly salary
S check stopped. The Chinese judge a medical
man not by thenumberof years hA lives, but by
the length of time his clients survive.
An advertising medium must be judged in
the same way. The fact that it has age to its
credit isn't so important as the age of its adver-
u is patronage. Whenever a newspaper con-
tinues to display the store talk of the same es-
tablishment year after year, it's a pretty sure
sign that the merchant has made money out of
that newspaper, because no publication can
continue to be a losing investment to its cus-
tomers over a stretch of time without the fact
4, being discovered. And when a newspaper is
able to boast of an honor roll of stores
that have continued to appear in its pages for
a stretch of decades it has proven its superiority
as plainly as a mountain peak which rises
I, above its fellows.
^ The combination of stability and progress is
the strongest virtue that a newspaper can pos-
sess. Only thefitsurvive-reputation is adifficult
thing to get and a harder thing to hold-it takes
merit to earn it and character to maintain it.
There is a vast difference between fame and
notoriety, and just as much difference between
a famous newspaper and a notorious one.
Just as a manufacturer is always eager to
r install his choicest stocks in a store which has
earned the respect of the community, just so a
Retailer should be anxious to insert his name in
a newspaper which has earned the respect of its
S waders. The manufacturer feels that he will
receive a square deal from a store which has
age to its credit. He can expect as much from
a newspaper which is a credit to its age I
The newspaper which outlives the rest does
so because it was best fitted to--it had to earn
the confidence of its readers-and keep it. It
had to be a better newspaper than any other,
and better newspapers goto the homes of better
buyers. Every bit of its circulation has the
element of quality and staying power. And it
S is the respectable, home-loving element of every
community-not the touts and the gamblers-
toward which the merchant must look for his
business vertebrae-he cannot find buyers un-
S less he uses the newspaper that enters their
S homes. And when he does enter their lh mess
he must not confuse the sheet that comes in
the back gate with the newspaper that is de-
livered at the front door.

not be present, owing to pressing du-
ties in Washington. The following let-

by Mr. fletcher, and read to the joint
seeido of the two houses immediately
after the election:
"To the Legislature of the State of
"In rspone to the will of the people,
expreed n the primaries, and in eom-
plfatce with your pledge, and in obedi-
ence to your consciences, you have Just
conferred upon me, one of your eiti-
sen, a very great honor. With that
distinction go large responsibilities and
laborious dutiee. By service, rather
than by words, should due appreciation
be shown and expressed I repet to
=o the promises made to the people.
There is no barrier between me and
them; no conflicting spectre stalks be.
tween the Interests of the people and
the objects of my service. There is no
call which has a dearer sound to my
ears than the voice of the people,
There s no Influence which attracts and
biade whatever energies and powers I
can command like the needs and wishes
of the people at large. My heart is
with the people of my State and coun-
t. and whatever makes for their good
will have my support and whatever
works for their barm I shall combat;
whatever tends to promote their happi-
ness and welfare it shall be my endeav.
or to accomplish; whatever uplifts and
upbuilde I shall encourage; whatever
moves toward advancement and better
conditions I shall feel bound to urge.
"In saying this, and in this work, I
do not eoneive it necessary to array
ele against class; to decry industrial
development; to assall wealth because
it l wealth; to attack capital because
It is capital, and invoke against Its safe
ad profitable Investment; to strangle
