BETTER PREPARATION HAS
PUSHED CORN BANNER OAT
CROP PEANUTS AND SWEET
POTATOES SHOULD BE PLANT
Reports from agents in the field
indicate excellent prospects for all
coming in Florida. The long spell
of dry weather that the farmers have
been experiencing throughout the
state in the' winter and early spring
months does not appear to have had
the disastrous results some predwrted
it would have. This is especially
true where thorough preparation, of
soil, best methods of breaking same,
and preparation of seed bed were
practiced by the farmers.
In the northern and western pari,
of the state especially corn is very
good. Farmers have, as a general
rule, made better preparation, ana
while they have suffered pernaps
more than the farmers in the south
ern section from the dry weather, the
.n otiTwaTs ta be holding its own.

The oat crop has Been narvesueu
arA in some sections the farmers re-
nnrt ia inrcpst erons that have ever
been produced. This is especially
true of Gadsden and Madison coun
Mr. W. C. Barrineau of Es
cambia county had 400 acres in oats
and harvested the largest crop n
will deliver his
has ever had. He is now shipping
this in carload lots to Alabama.
Plant Peanuts Now.
It has been found after several
years' experience by most of our best
farmers that a very profitable crop
to grow after oats is peanuts. There
are several varieties or peanuts in
use, any of which can be made profit
able by plowing the oat stubble deep
enough to insure a good seed bed ani
planting the peanuts on that. The
peanut rows should be from thirty-
six to forty-two inches apart, de
pending on , the type of the crop.
Enough space should be allowed be
tween the rows to permit of cultiva
tion by shallow working tools during
the growing period. Where hogs are
in evidence on the farm, peanuts
make a good feed. Some people think
neanut-fed tork will not give the
host tvne. Claims that lard from
anut-fed animals will not get as
solid as where corn is used are unjus
Peanuts nlanted between July 1 and
10 have been found to be desirable
because they will be growing during
the rainv nenod. and be ready to
harvest when the rainy season is over
in September or October.
Another good crop to follow oats

Marlanna, Fla., June 3. The case
of Claude L. Alford, vs. Jackson
County Board of County Commis
sioners in mandamus proceedings
came to a close today when Judge C.
L. Wilson issued the' writ ordering
Mr. Alford s name placed on the bal
lot next Tuesday.
The county board refused to certify
Mr. Alford's name as a candidate for
representative on the ground that
he failed to designate the group num
ber In which he wished to run. The
circuit judge in rendering his opinion
stated that the section requiring can
dictates to name the group number
was inoperative because the subject
matter, of the amended act was not
embodied in the enacting clause.
This case has excited considerable
interest as the public generally has
been In sympathy with Mr. Alford
ana believed, that he should not be
deprived of the right to have his
name on th"Tcfcet because of a cleri
cal error of so small a consequence,
especially since he has stated all
along in his published announcement
and in his speeches that he was a can
didate in group two and the fact
was one of common knowledge.

i sweet potatoes. The land should
be well bedded, not too high, with
four feet apart, from center to cen
ter, and planted any time before the
first of July will give good results.
The .matter of growing- arger num
bers of live stock in the state is tak
ing hold of the farmers to a large
degree, also dipping of cattle, this
being stressed more than ever before.
The state of Florida offers great pos
sibilities in live stock production, and
our farmers are beginning to awaken
to this fact.
When the cattle tick Is eliminated
this can be made very profitable, and
when you take into account our long
seasons here andpur ability to grow
a variety of forage crops and silage
material, in a few years we expect
the live 6tock industry to be the larg
est in the state.-
Will appreciate your support
On June 6th.

. The close of a long and exciting campaign is almost
at hand. The various candidates have done their level
best to impress upon the voters their claims for consid
eration, and on next Tuesdaay it will be the duty of
the voters to select the wheat from the chaff, and to
separate the sheep from the goats. Doubtless there
will be quite a herd of "billies" on next Wednesday.
This campaign has been a source of great pleasure
to me. I have made many new friends ,and I am proud
to say that I don t think I have made many enemies. I
have conducted a clean, honest and straightforward
campaign, with everything above board. I have relied
upon my ability, my record and my character as a man
(all thnt I possess) to carry me through, and it is a
winning ticket. x
The county needs the best men available in our pub
lic office. Your election of Bob Edmundson to the of
fice of Harbormaster will be a guarantee that the ad
ministration of this office will receive the best that is in
me, courteous treatment and satisfaction to all who
may have business with the office.
Your vote for Bob Edmundson for Harbormaster,
either first or second choice, will be sincerely appreciated.
