Second Day of farmers' Meeting The second day of the. annual con vention of the Florida division of the Farmers' Union opened this morning with another enthusiastic and highly successful session. The features of this morning's session were the an nual address of President J L. Shep hard, of Pomona, and a wonderfully inspiring address by Miss S. Carey, of Miami, who, with a view to dem onstrating to the people of Florida that Florida beef finished in this state, is superior to western beef, has start ed a "Finish a Steer" movement. The reports of officers and reports of com mittees also took up a portion of this morning's session. In his address President Shephard stated the purpose sof the Farmers' Union. They are "to discourage the credit and mortgage system," he said. "To assist our members in buying and selling. To educate the agricultural classes in scientific farming. To teach farmers the classification !of crops, domestic economy and the pro cess of marketing. To systematize methods of production and distribu tion. To bring farming up to the standard of other industries and bus iness enterprises." President Shephard struck the key note of his address when he said: Equal rights for all and special priv ileges to none will bring peace and happiness to the homes of American agriculture." Miss Carey, in her splendid address, pointed out that the people of Florida pay an annual bill of $75,000,000 for imported meat and dairy products, ev ery ounce of which could be produced in the state. There has been a preju dice against Florida beef. It has been absolutely proven by many a farmer and progressive cattle man that Flor ida beef, finished, in Florida, is the sweetest and most delicious meat ever served in our markets. Miss Carey says, but the demand for Florida meat is so small that it does not pay the farmer to finish more .than a few choice animals here and there. Yet the whole situation can be changed in less than ten months, she says, if ev ery man and woman in the state would come together and agree to create a market for well finished Florida beef. Miss Carey's plan is to have a fenced ranch in every county where range steers can be finished properly, slaughtered under board of health in spection in a sanitary abatoir and sold in the local market of for export. To get this plan under way Miss Carey is organizing a demonstration herd on her ranch near Miami. She is asking leading organizations and prominent men and women throughout the state to buy a steer at $25. The steers will be finished and marketed by her and each purchaser will get his or her $25 back plus 50 per cent of, the profits of the sale. Miss Carey's plan is meeting with approval wherever she has been in the state. She will be in Ocala for a, day or two and hopes to have a number of steers purchased here. - The Farmers' Union , convention will be in session again tomorrow, con vening at 9 o'clock in the courthouse.

FARMERS CAN OBTAIN PICRIC ACID AT A SMALL COST Farmers of this state may purchase picric acid for blasting stumps, blow ing holes, for trees and similar agri cultural purposes, according to a re cent communication from Director Wilmon Newell of the agricultural extension division to the county agents of Florida. The College of Agriculture, Univer sity of Florida, Gainesville, is in a position to obtain this explosive thru the United States bureau of public roads. It will be necessary for farm ers who desire to purchase quantities of the explosive, to do so thru their county agents. There is no charge for the acid, but the farmer is required to pay for the cartridging, a small con tingency fee to, cover expenses, and for freight, totaling seven cents a pound, exclusive of freight. It will be necessary for all orders to be made thru count yagents and the colleeg of agriculture, and no less than one carload will be shipped to any one county. Therefore, farmers desiring to purchase picric acid should get in touch with their county agent. Money must be paid in advance by bank draft or bankers' acceptance, and freight charges must be guaranteed. Picric acid is slightly more power ful than dynamite, for which it is an excellent substitute. . Caution must be observed in handling it. No metal tools should be used in working with it, nor should it be stored near metal objects. A stronger concussion than for dy namite is necessary to set off 'picric acid. A No. 8 detonating cap should be used instead of a No. 6. No fuses or detonating caps are furnished, but may be purchased from hardware dealers. If you are interested, communicate with your county agent. He has full information and can answer any ques tion you'may desire to ask. SHADY Shady, Aug. 23. Mrs. J. P.
