New York.?John Hampton, a pros
perous auto dealer, recently returned
from South Africa, bringing a large
ape. which he christened "Dare-Devil
Spike." He and Spiko xound accom
modations at Ike Hlrschorn's hotel
here, and one day Hampton let Spike
"set 'em up" for everyone In the ho
tel bar. ThlB gave Spike his first
drink, and gave him the desire for it.
Nobody minded much, however, until
the monkey drifted downstairs from
Its master's room shortly before dawn
and gave a good imitation of a Pitts
burgh millionaire on a spree.
One morning recently before the bar
room wns opened for tho day the ape
appeared to have a thirst of tho sort
which only seasoned drinkers are sup
posed to possess. Spiko sneaked out
of Hampton's room, slid down the bnn
Ister and deftly entered the bar room
through an open transom. When Carl

Spike greeted Hassenflock with a
shrill cry of welcome, followed by a
heavy tumbler, which missed the

fleck had learned to dodge In his
youth. Jimmy Samponl, a porter,
went to tho lunch man's rescue,
with the result that the two men
passed an unenviable time hiding be
hind the lunch counter in a storm of
falling steins, bottles, plates, knives,
forks, and other objects. Several of

afterward, would win for him a place

The Livo Oak, Porry & Oulf Rail
road, popularly known as the "Suwa
noe River Route," traverses one of
the richest, most productive and
healthiest sections of Florida, starting
at Live Oak and continuing westerly
through Dowling Park, Perry and
Hampton Springs, to a point near the
Oulf of Mexico, with a branch at Al
ton. Live Oak Is one of the best lit
tle business cities in Florida, with
a population of about 5,000, Is 70 miles
west of Jacksonville and about 25
miles south of the Oeorgia State line,
is a Junction point for tho Seaboard

The section of Florida served by the
Live Oak, Perry & Qulf Railroad is
the heaviest timbered section of the
state, and lumbering and allied In
dustries aro being developed In a big
way In the sevoral rapidly growing
towns along Its lino. This means un
?sully good opening for all classes.
These heavily timbered hinds aro also,
naturally, the richest agricultural
lands and It Is these lands that the
Railroad desires to settle with good
hard-working progressive people as
fast as the lands are released by the
operations of tho big lumber milling
Suwnnnee county, lying as it does
between the Atlantic Ocean and the
Qulf of Mexico, with the never falling
cool summer breezes from east to
west, has a climate ns cool In summer
as In the North and yet ideally perfect
In winter, and with ample fall for
drainage and an abundance of pure
drinking water. Suwannee county Is
nn especially healthy spot. A rain
fall of over f>0 Inches por annum
makes crops as certain as possible.
For the purpose of encouraging set
tlers to Immediately occupy and culti
vate nil the unoccupied lands In Su
wannee county and thereby materially
Increasing the tonnage and earnings
of our railroad, we have succeeded In
Inducing the several big lumber com
panies on our line, who are owi ers of
large tracts of agricultural and tim
ber land, to let us have 25.000 acres
of the best agricultural lands in Su
wannee county, to be put on the mar
ket to actual settlers. We absolutely
exclude speculators who wish to buy
more tha,i 320 acres, while to the ac- i
tual settlei s we offer land practically
regardless of prices or terms. In fact,
on ridiculously easy condiMons to re
liable people, we will furnish from 40
to 150 acres absolutely free of one
dollar's cost, on a plan much easier
than land ever could have been obtain
ed even under the Government home
stead law. And. it will be remember*
ed that millions of ocres that were I
first acquired from the Government
without cost are now worth from $50 j
to $200 per acre. The owners of these I
Suwannee county lands have consent- I
ed to our opening them for immediate
settlement on our heretofore unheard
of liberal terms and conditions, only
because they know such settlement
will greatly enhance the value of I he
quarter of a million acres they have
yet to put on the market.
Just Imagine?these lands are lo
cated right along our line of railroad;
some adjoining townsites, ->o?ne not
far from our local metropolis. Live
Oak. and none of them more thnn four
miles from railway service; close to
good schools, churches, market:-,
neighbors and only about three hour's
ride to the great city of Jacksonville
with its seaport markets to the world.
These are the best landt in th.-? St.v.c
of Florida for the raising of corn,
cane, long staple cotton, upland rice,
all kinds of hay and fodder, cowpeas,
velvet beans, cassava, peanuts, po
tatoes tboth sweet and Irish), vege
tables of all kinds, fruits, nut.", cat
tle, hogs, mules and hordes; while
the conditions for poultry raising, bee
keeping and dairying are Ideal. Wo
hope within another two years to see
Suwanee county well settled and al!
under cultivation?a veritable garden
spot?and lands selling at $ 100.0m per
acre and upwards. But, for the pres
net, our railroad needs more settle;.
and more tonnage; therefore, price.*

Ject. In short. If you can convlnco us
that you are capable of farming fjom
40 to 320 acres and that you could,
if necessary, come to Florida with a
cash working capital of $500.00 or ov
er, perferably $1.000.00 or more, you
can on the easiest conditions Imagin
able secure through us, without one
dollar's cost a farm of from 40 to 160
acres under warranty deed to farm,
hold, sell or do with as you wish.
If interested, we would be glad to
tell you all about this country, our
plans, the opportunities here for mak
ing money, and especially the condi
tions by which you may have one of
these farms free of cost. To learn

Last Wednesday when the trees were
covered with ice we thought of the
birds, and remarked that we do not
see so many as in former years. What
has become of the birds? Some years
rgo at this time of year the robbin
would flock to the china trees, and
now we rarely ever see one. We miss
many birds that a few years ago were
regular visitors here. The large wood
pecker of the scansorial family, with
Its black coat, white neck, red top not.
and tremendous voice has disappeared.
We see a few thrush, cat birds, jays,
and mocking birds In their season, but
, they are not so numerous as in form
er years. The little blue bird with Its
brown breast has gone, as well as
many other varieties. I think the Au
dubon society ought to be kept up to
protect the birds or we will soon have
none of many varieties that are so
pretty and useful.
