Th ', sincerely hopes that the sentiment it voi ed against mixing politics with our celebration of Armis tice Day is taken, by the committee m cnaige, in ir-Vi it was offered. n,,.. nV,;Ppt in suDDosinir that this was an unwise decision was to prevent any possible friction when it was too late to correct it. Assurances from men who were in service, as well as these who worked to win the war in civil life, assures us that we were right in suggesting that no political debates be authorized on that day as a part of the celebration. Wind jamming between two politicians is anything else but a celebration. If we wanted to pull off some thing sensational merely for the purpose of attracting people from the country we might stage a prize fight, a bull fight or something similar. The day should be sacred to all Americans, celebrat ed, or observed rather, by just tribute to the One on High, as well as tribute to our men who bore arms. Happily, the incident is closed and the day will be observed becomingly in Palatka. HORROR OF PUBLIC EXECUTIONS. tv,ovo lma lippn much discussion locally as to whether or not the execution of Nat Richardson, the convicted slay- r of Conductor Kay Butts snouia not De mane a puDiic -ffni,. Tr. is surnrisme in these supposedly civilized times that men of vicious temperament will advocate such an ex hibition open to the eyes of the young, or elders, for that matter. Recently there was an execution m Ocala which .-as one of the most deplorable affairs under sanction of Unr no havp pver heard recounted. Such an occur ence here surely would not be contributory to the morals af the community or to the even temper ot some lew. The trend of sentiment against capital punisnment m .vny form is increasing in volume. It certainly is over whelming against public executions, as it snouiu De. We feel quite sure that the otticiais oi tnis county ;n o-r nhnnt the matter as cruietly and with as much ma jesty as is due the proper administration of justice. VACATE THE INJUNCTION. ir r.nmnprs and other labor leaders believe that if Lhe injunction restraining leaders of the miners from d lecting the present strike is vacatedl it will pen the way to a settlement of the strike. There is no doubt but that the Government, or rather, the courts, will readily agree to this. President Wilson undcubtedly would hasten, if he could, tne vacating oi tne restraining order. Although some radical labor leaders were not satisfied with the President's statement on the strike situation, it is to be generally acceped as issued in the interest of the whole, and not ot a lew. We believed from the hrst tnat tne miners mvc ...i,i Wsnisp it threw so many hundreds of thous ands of union laborers out of employment from fuel short age that it would be found working a greater narusmp ou the labor element than on anyone else.

Sow Crescent City is trying to have a strike. Boston, Mass., in the fall of 1917, has spread so rapidly that it now infests more than 2,000 square miles of ter ritory in the New England States and in New York. Corn its favorite host plant and the borers tunnel through all parts of the plant except only the fibrous roots. Tassels are cut off, stalks weakened so that they break over in the slightest wind and cobs and ears are thoroughly riddled by the pest. In some instances destruction of the corn crop has been complete. The insect is a voracioua feeder and attacks almost every succulent plant. Already, in the vicinity of Boston, it has been found to attack forty-nine dfferent kinds of plants, including grains, weeds, grasses and many vegetable plants. The States of New York and Mass achusetts have expended approxi mately $100,000 in lghting the pest while the national government is now using a quarter of a millon dollars in attempting to check its spread. Would Ruin Florida It is the opinion of entomologists' and experienced inspectors connected with the State Plant Board of Flor ida that this pest, if established in Florida, would be more destructive than in New England, as it would have a longer season in which to de velop and would develop more gene rations each year. It is likely that it would prove a very destructive nemy of sugar ane as it is very fond of all succulent plants of the grass family. In order to precent the introduc tion of this pest into flonaa, tne State Plant Board has adopted rules and regulations prohibiting the ship ment'' into Florda, from the btates ot Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Con necticut and New York of all of the following materials any of which are f.-mahle of carrying the pest: "All broom corn, corn, corn fod der, corn stalks and corn cobs; ex- cent shelled dry kernels of corn free from pieces of cobs and stems, corn meal, grits and flakes, and the cook- , or preserved products of corn.

CURB EARLY SHIPPING. There always has been and probably always will be a very decided inclination on the part of Florida growers to take advantage of the early prices for fruits. The evils of this early shipping are pointed out by Sales Manager George A. Scott, of the Florida Citrus Exchange, as fol lows: "There is an abundant supply of nativ3 fruits. Cali fornia and Michigan grapes in all Northern markets; in addition to which a larger offering than usual of California oranges exist. The natural result has been greater dis crimination on the part of the buyer and a demand for ful ly ripened, well-matured goods at attractive prices. Green, immature and otherwise unattractive fruit is mee: ,ng with an indifferent demand; is more or less neglected and prices ranging low. This is especially true on the small size oranges and grapefruit. It emphasizes what has been repeatedly mentioned in the first part of the sea son, that only fully colored, well matured f.u rhould b-J sent forward to the markets. This wiii create and stim u'ate a demand, while green, immature stock cannot fail to kill it.
