The time has eOine for people to take a
stand for temperance and stand for those
candidates that, uphold temperance. It

FLORIDA'S CITRUS CROP.
Government Puts Gain n Fruit. Output
at 15,00u,000 Boxes.
Production of citrus fruits in. Florida
for the rear 1922-23 season is estimated
at 1.1.000.(100 boxes by the United States
department of agriculture. Of this to
tal about 8,400,000 will be of oranges
and tangerines and 0,600,000 of grape
fruit. An early forecast of the Cali
fornia orange crop made Aug. 1 is 13,
THO.OtH) boxes. The commercial citrus
crop of Florida last season was approxi
mately 13,300,000 boxes, of which
7.300.000 boxes were oranges and 0,000,
000 boxes of grapefruit.
Outstanding features of this season's
crop are the fine quality and size of
fruit from early bloom and the heavy
setting of fruit from late bloom. Bloom
last spring was heavy all over the citrus
belt, except in the storm-swept territory
on the west coast, where large quanti
ties of the fruit were destroyed in Octo
ber. Dry weather followed, with consid
erable shedding of fruit, which became
serious along the east coast ridge and
in parts of the central highland section.
Beginning in May and extending
through June this year, virtually the en
tire citrus belt put on the heaviest late
,bloom the state has ever seen. With fa
vorable weather conditions, a heavy set
tine of late fruit followed. The condi
tion in most groves is therefore a ligltf j
to fairly good crop of iruit irom eariy
bloom. which is showing unusual size
rand ripening somewhat earlier than
usual. On the same trees is a crop from
late bloom, filling up the loss from shed
ding last spring and showing every pros
pect of swelling the total shipments next
spring and early summer.
By sections, the heaviest increase in
production over last year is expected on
the central highland ridge, especially
through the eastern part of Polk county
and the north end of Highland county.
'.South of the ridge, through parts of
Hardee and De Soto counties, produc
tion may fall slightly under last year
since this section did "not develop a good
late bloom. The storm-swept territory
of which Pinellas county was the cen
ter, will ship about' as. much fruit as it
did last year. . Further up the west
coast an increase of 10 to 15 per cent
is in sight. - The lower west coast will
run ahead of last season, principally on
oranges, most of . the fruit . being from
early bloom. The east coast 6hows an
average increase of five, to 10 per cent
over last season, with fairly light crops
on tke ridge and a full cop in the back
Production of tangerines is estimated
at 125 per cent of last year. .Prospects
are excellent, with trees full of fruit.
Production of limes will be slightly heav
ier than for la6t year.

: - New -Golf Grass. - -
Golf grass to make, golf balls bounce
better on the putting green and the fair
ways has been developed by the bureau
of plant industry of the. United States
agricultural department. Creeping bent
is the grass which has been found to fur
nish the ideal turf for the devotees of the
Scotch game, says uu . article prepared
by Science Service. The use of this grass
has been fought Jjy the seed men because
is not raised from seed.
The ideal golf lint covering is a run
ning, jointed grass, which sends down
roots from each joint, thus forming a
thick mat, resistent to wear and drought.
The method of planting is to cut up these
roots in a chopping box and sow them
like seed, but covered somewhat deeper.
In this. way, a more uniform color and
texture is obtained than from grasses
raised from seed.
Creeping bent is an importation from
Germany with which the agricultural
department has been experimenting for
five years. It as cultivated in rows sir
reet apart and spreads rapidly. A hun
dred feet of a row is sufficient to sow an
entire golf course. Last year 11. " golf
courses were supplied in this way and
the demand'. is. increasing.
Cleverness without principle is no
good, and learning is no good without
common sense to apply it. - - . . ,
CLOSER CONTEST NEEDED.

POLITICAL ADVERTISING. ,
For Frank E. Barber
To Republican Voters:
"A rijebt to elet officers and be elected into office" are among the
highest rights conferred upon citizens by the constitution of Vermont.
It is equal in importance to "the right of protection in the enjoyment
of life, liberty and property." The right of suffrage to vote our fellow
citizens into various offices, from humblest to highest lies, at the very
foundation of a republican form of government.
' But important and invaluable as this privilege is. it is a remark
able fact that great numbers of voters are indifferent about its exercise.
If Senator Jjodge should fail of a re-election to the United States sen
ate tomorrow it will be because Republican voters will not take the
trouble to come out and vote for him, although they may desire his
If Redfield Proctor, who, by reason of his own and inherited abili
ties and his experience in legislation, promises to become one of the
ablest Governors the state has had in a score of years, is elected by a
small vote, it will be because Republican voters will not come to the
polls; They will say to themselves that he will be elected without their
votes. I t.j is safe to-say that in every election held in this town for
state officers in the last 10 years hundreds of voters have been absent
from the polls. Apathy, indifference about voting, is a menace to the
stability of the Federal Government.
A full Republican vote. is especially important this year through
out the country,- to give support to President Harding and his ad
ministration. A full vote in Vermont will encourage our state officers
to do their best when they-assume their offices in January, next.
Brattleboro is a strong Republican town. If it elects a Democrat
tomorrow for town representative it will regret it on Wednesday-and
always after. The whole state is in the habit of looking to Brattleboro
to take the lead in all good woks, and its citizens have reason to be
proud of its record.
There can be no question in the mind of any voter that Frank E.
Barber is the best man that has been named to represent the town in
the next Legislature. I fully indorse all that Mc Crosby has so well
said of him, lie is identified with the town's best interests. His abili
ties easily made him a leader in the last House, and he was highly
esteemed bv all the members
there never was a word op criticism abottt any
vote or -Action of his in relation to appropria
tion BILLS OR ANY OTHER MEASURE UNTIL THIS CAM
PAIGN WAS BEGUN AGAINST HIM 10 DAYS AGO. I believe it
is only for political effect. Let us give him a rousing election on Tues
day, lie deserves and will be proud of the support of the women voters
of the town. -
