(By Adrian E. Langford.)
When the eouth winds, with its steady
Blows o'er the gulfs beach snowy
And brings good tidings to every
one, From far and distant lands,
Tis then my thonghts are turning
To that little seaport town.
Where the thoughts of true hearts
And friendliness always found.
Where flowers of youth are blooming,
And sorrows laid aside,
Where peare and good will to every-
Drift in like noon-day tide.
Where clouds of sorrow seldom ven
ture, Where storm dare not go.
Lies the white beach of Santa Rosa,
As bright as the drifted enow.
Of other places I've always dreamed,
Unknown and quaint to me,
Where the rush of life is slowly
Like the wiltering magnolia tree,
With visions of this old town,
And Just a thought or two,,
I may wander in dreams to unknown
ButH always come back to you.
Just a spot In the "Land of Flowers,"
But endowed by Nature's hand,
Lies this little town of happiness,
'Bout the dearest In all the land.
Where friends are always friendly.
With a handshake, ne'er a frown,
Is the place for everybody,
.Old Pen-sa-co-la town.
As everyone knows, C. W. Post of
Battle Creek, Michigan, Is not a
maker of breakfast foods, but he Is a
strong individualist who believes that
the trades-unions are a menace to the
liberty of the country.
Believing this, and being a "natural
born" scrapper for the rlght,as he sees
it. Post, for several years past, has
been engaged in a ceaseless warfare
against "the Labor Trust," as he likes
to call it.
Not being able to secure free and
untrammeled expression of his opin
ions on this subject through the regu
lar reading pages of the newspapers
he has bought advertising space for
this purpose, Just as he is accustom
ed to for telling of his Postum "story"
and he has thus spent hundreds of
thousands of dollars In denouncing
As a result of Post's activities the
people now know a whole lot about
these organizations; how they are
honeycombed with graft, how they ob
struct the development or legitimate i
business, curtail labor's output, hold '
up manufacturers, graft upon their
own membership, and rob the public.
Naturally Post is hated by the trades
unionists, and intensely.
He employs no union labor, so they
can nut call out his men, and he de
fies their efforts at boycotting his
products. The latest means of "get
ting" Post Is the widespread publica
tion of the story that a car which was
recently -wrecked in' transmission was
found to be loaded with empty pea
rut shells, which were being shipped
from the south to Post's establish
ment at Battle Creek.
This canard probably originated
with President John Fitzgerald of the
Chicago Federation of Labor, who, it
Is said, stated it publicly, as truth.
Post comes back and gives Fitzger
ald the lie direct. He denounces Fitz
gerald's statement as a deliberate
falsehood, an underhanded and cow
ardly attempt to injure his business,
having not the slightest basis in fact.
. As such an effort it must be regarded.
It is significant that this statement
about "the peanut shells" is being
given wide newspaper publicity. In
the "patent inside " of an eastern
country paper I find it, and the infer
ence naturally is that labor-unlonites
are insidiously spreading this lie.
An institution (or a man) which
will resort to moral intimidation and
to physical force, that will destroy ma
chinery and burn buildings, that will
maim and kill if necessary to effect
Its ends, naturally would not hesitate
to spread falsehood for the same pur
poses. We admire Post. While we have no
enmity toward labor unions, so long
as they are conducted In an honest,
"live-and-let-llve" kind of a way, we
have had enough of the tarred end of
the stick to sympathize thoroughly
with what he is trying to do. He de
serves support. A man like Post can
Hot be killed, even with lies. They
are a boomerang, every time. Again
we know, for hasn't this weapon,
every weapon that could be thought
of, been used (and not simply by la
bor unions) to put us out of business
I am going to drink two cups of Pos
tum every morning this time on, and
put myself on a diet of Grape-Nuts.

At th Opera Houss Wednesday nloht
ED. Many inquiries have been made iu
reference to the Mission hospital and
home and many have desired to have
a part in the furnishing of it. Hither
to this has been impossible to give in
detail, but since the arrival of the
superintendent who is here to advise
and take charge, a full list has been
made out and it is believed that the
people of Pensacola will respond to
the demands..
The home is situated on the corner
of Strong and Reus streets. The
front part of the building will be
used expressly for this department of
the work. There will be two rooms
for women holding nine beds. Sev
eral of these beds with accessories
have already been spoken for by
church societies. It is intended to
have each bed with equipment of a
uniform character and quality and the
goods have been selected to cost
$17.50 per bed. This includes tho
sheets, pillow cases, etc., which will
be kept separate.
Next to these rooms is a dormi
tory for children, which will hold ten
cribs. These will cost $15 per crib
with accessories.
The hallway will be used as a
work room, and this will be a very
busy department, as the work of both
Institutions will require much sewing.
A gift of a sewing machine and some
chairs and rugs will be appreciat
ed. The above rooms, are situated
on the secon floor, there being also
a large bath room, closets, and a priv
ate patients room. The latter will be
furnished by Mrs. J. F. Taylor in
memoriam of her little daughter.
The ground floor of the front build
ing will be used for the office of the
entire institution, and in the rear of
this a reception room. There will be
required a desk, chairs and rocking
chairs, centre table, hall rack, rugs,
etc. On the left will be tlte superin
tendent's room, with dining room in
the rear. These two rooms will re
quire the usual furniture for such,
Mrs. Wm. Fisher, Sr., providing the
furniture for the front room.
Off the dining room is the kitchen,
in which everything is required,
ranges, refrigerators, kitchen utensils,
etc. This part of the house can be
completely shut off from the hospital,
which will consist of a dormitory for
women holding Ave beds and anoth
er for men holding four beds, with
one private patients room. Those de
sirous of donating a bed with all the
necessary accessories, including
chairs and bed table will be at a
cost of $25.00. Everything will be
uniform, and at the head of each bed
will be a plate showing the name of
the donor.
The private room equipment will
cost $32.50. and in addition there will
be two children's cribs costing $15
The Operating Room.
The most important , room in the
building is the operating room, and
to furnish this will cost $201. A
grand opportunity is thus offered to
some charitable person to no a graci
ous act for the benefit of Pensacola
and the people by donating the neces
sary equipment for the first free hos
pital. Already patients are waiting
to be operated on, and it is necessary
that the work should commence at
once. Will not some one take this
burden oft the shoulders of those that
are nushing this work forward by ac
cepting the proposition ana rurnisning
this room complete?
The outer house which will be used
for a laundry will also require the
necessary equipment. In a 'commum
ty like tbere la in this city it should
be an easy matter to nave tnis duuci
inz Dronerly furnished. If the church
societies, Sunday schools "or different
Baracas orders would take up a col
lection to equip a bed or any part,
or even private persons can easily
donate one bed, or If not a rocking
chair, etc. Some little article taken
out of a well furnished house would
not be missed, but on the other hand
would help the home.
Those wishing to do something for
the home or hospital will please ad
vise with Mrs. T. V. Kessler, tha
chairlady of the lady board of manag
ers, or with Rev. R. W. Simpson, the
director of the Mission. The former
can be reached by phone 142 and the
latter by phone 146, and both will be
pleased to call and make any explana
tion required.
J. Hampton Jones, state inspector of
stock feeds, who has been in the city
for the pas-t three days, last night
stated that his visit here had not been
without results. He said that he had
found oats, purchased in all the gcod
faith in the world by the dealer, to
contain more barley than is allowed by
law, and one dealer to whom Inspector
Jones spok to said, according to re
port, that he would get his legal firm
to make a test of the inspector's
opinion if necessary. The inspector
quoted the law to him, and no opinion
was sought.
Mr. Jones said that he had found
what had been purchased for good oats
in a number of cars here, and discov
ered that they were not good enough
to have the inspection card attached.
He said that he bad stopped such. A
little instruction along the line of the
law's requirements was given local
traders, and the inspector anticipates
no further trouble. He is the only in
spector of stock feeds in the state.
Opportunities For the Young Man
Who Will Stay With the Farm
By Peter Stanley.
Half a century ago to be a "planter"
wa3 the high est pride of a Southern
gentleman and the fondest hope of his
ambitious posterity, because the plant
er was universally recognized as hav
ing both brains and wealth.
But one day the Southern farmer
awoke and found
Well, the tale has toeen too often
told to be interesting to repeat, so the
farmer began pushing his sons out
into the professional life, to the cities
and towns, so as to preserve that
grand old aristocracy of the family
name. Agricultural studies and pur
suits were practically abandoned; tne
fine old country homes were neglected
and soon began disappearing, crude
cabins taking the places of large man
sions and small "patcnes" talcing tne
places of plantations. Happiness was
wounded and health slaughtered.
The prettiest picture we can draw
from our Imagination today is now in
the bud and about to develop into a
full blown flower. It is the great
agricultural interests of the South.
Every acre of soil is bounding upward
in value with remarkable rapidity.
Plantations are being cleared and
fenced not in the old way, cutting
down a few trees and making a
brusn fence around the "patch, but
the lands are being "stumped" and put
in first class condition for cultivation
and enclosed with good wire fences.

this agricultural business in the great

feature which tells its own story. The
very best and latest improved ma
chinery is being installed. An old vet
eran said to me the other day:
Yes, the Yankees took our slaves
away from us and we thought we were
ruined, but the same fellow came along
and gave us farm machinery and bless
God we are better off."
With improved farm machinery,

to put cn their farms, indeed we are
better on without the slave. We are
teaching our boys the practical lessons
of real farming.

The Chicago Examiner of February
6, 1910, published, with numerous
strudng illustrations, the following ar
ticle from the pen of Governor Albert
W. Gilchrist, under the heading "Flor
ida, the Marvelous."
Florida exetnds through 420 miles
north and south, being bounded on
the east by the Atlantic Ocean and
the greater portion of it on the west
by the Gulf of Mexico. Its soil and
climate render it friendly to the pro
duction of corn, oats and other ce
reals, Jong and short cotton and all
kinds of vegetables, tropical and semi
tropical fruits.
It is one of the most healthful
states in the union. The death rate,
according to the last census by the
state of Florida, is 6.6 per thousand.
The registration area of the United
States, including the New England
States, Xcw York, New Jersey, Dela
ware and the District of Columbia,
has a death rate of 17.8 per thousand.
Iu England, Scotland and Wales it is
IS, in Italy it is 21.1. To my mind,
one of the most important pieces of
information for an intending settler
is the health.
Much attention is being given in
many of the Western states to irri
gation. There is no part of Florida
in which good artesian water cannot
be found. These wells vary in depth
from about sixty to 400 feet. Through
its rivers and lakes, Florida is un
doubtedly the best watered state in
all the union. Irrigation for farming
purposes can therefore be cheaply
done; however, irrigation is rarely
used. The artesian water is always
healthful and free from microbes.
Though Dot a corn state, in several
portions of the state from fifty to one
hundred bushels of corn per acre is
As to the production of cotton, both
long staple and short, it is also pecu
liarly adapted. No wheat is raised.
Peavine and beggar weed hay are now
regarded as good hay as can be pro
duced anywhere in the world.
Early Vegetables and Nuts Extensive
ly Grown.
In some of the northern counties
in particular, pecan nuts are being
grown extensively, in one county
there being as many as 5,000 acres
planted in such. Early vegetables
are grown extensively w for northern
markets, the soil in most cases pro
ducing 250 to 500 crates; from 150 to
200 bushels of sweet potatoes most
anywhere in the sfate. The people in
some pars of the state seem to con
centrate on certain kinds of vegeta
bles, in one community hundreds of
car loads of Irish potatoes being rais
ed, in others celery, others tomatoes,
in others a variety of stuff. Some
communities plant almost exclusively
In the southern portion of the state
citrus fruits and other tropical and
semi-tropical fruits are grown ex
tensively. Of the several trunk lines
of railroad in Florida, one alone ex
pects to shin 25,000 car loads of truck
and fruits this season. Cattle, sheep,
poultry, horticulture and agriculture
flourish throughout the state. Manu
factories, mining and fisheries of the
state are rapidly developing. In 1906
the manufactured products represent
ed $S7 per capita of the population
of the state. Florida is shipping now
about one-half of the phosphate mined
in the United States. There are also
mines of fuller's earth and fine clay
for satlery. Its various xroduet are
to stay, are being built again, and
from the clearing 'cross the way soft
sweet music is floating out upon the
evening air happy voices mingled in
song accompanied with piano and
violin. And as one travels tne tine
graded roads and breathes the pure
air so richly perfumed with flowers
old fashioned roses and new mown
hay, with a proud wave of the hand
we say: the good old times that used
to be have returned.
Never had a people better oppor
tunities than the young men of the
South today. He doesn't have to go
West to build up with the country but
simply stay at home and put his ener
gies and brains to work. His country
is developing; will he develop with it?
The call of the South Just now is
for the best make-up of men. Men
with creative minds and active bodies
and brains that are ' capacitated for
seeing the future as it's sure to be.
The call must be supplied, and the
places in the ranks of the great vic
torious army that are made vacant by
those of our own country will be filled
with those- who shall have come South
to build up with the country.
Stay with the old . farm, boys.
Though it may not yet represent tne
pretty pictures of country life the pa

power to make it just such a home.
That position in town you are think

nothing to it, and the fellow you see
in the city and think him the happiest
man on earth is the same fellow who
would give his millions tonight to pos
sess just what you've got out there on
the old homestead: peace, happiness,
health, good sound sleep, and an appe

Begin today and build. Build up
your mind first. IStore away in that
vacant cell some history of the lives

golden West. You have a thousand
advantages over them right here at
your door. Study your soil, climate,
seed, chemicals, stock, implements and
in fact study the things you must, use
in developing your home and build
permanently, for the grand old times
of aristocracy are upon us and we
want the old family name engrossed
prominently upon the pages of the his

second to none in the union.
There are 1,200 miles of seacoast,
ranging from the ocean to the gulf,
modifying the climate in the winter
and making it cool and delightful in
the summer. The climate is a hig
asset in the wealth and growth of the
state. Owing to its salubrity, much
vital force has been added to many
persons; the lives of persons who
could not live elsewhere have been
lengthened. No one can estimate
the value to the country in the
lengthening of the lives of men and
women possessing strength and force
of intellect and of character five, ten
or twenty years on account of the
mere fact of their living in Florida.
Productivity Equals Any Soil in the
United States.
Our soil produces as much per acre
of the product to which it is suited
as any state In the United States. In
many counties in Florida from 200 to
800 crates of vegetables are easily
produced to the acre, 800 to 1,000
quarts of strawberries, 90 to 150
bushels of Irish potatoes, 100 to 250
bushels of sweet potatoes, etc. Lands
are very similar to men. Some land3
are better suited to produce certain
results than others, as some men are
better fitted to accomplish certain re
suits than are some others.
I remember once talking to a gentle
man from Illinois. In the conversa
tion he was speaking of the produc
tiveness of the corn lands of Illinois
andS deprecating the non-productiveness
of the soil on which he was
standing. He stated that the lands in
Illinois would produce about fifty to
seventy-five bushels of corn to the
acre, or between one and two tons to
the acre. His attention was Invited
to the fact that fully 12,000 pineap
ples, weighing five pounds each, rep
resenting twenty-five to thirty tons to
the acre, were grown on land similar
to that on which he stood. He quit
Our state is being settled with good
citizens. According to the last cen
sus, the rate of increase was 35 per
cent. The next census will show at
least as high a per cent. The popu
lation is made up of enterprising citi
zens from every state in the union
and from various parts of the world.
There are now various plans for
colonization purposes in Florida. It
would be injurious to our state for
people to come here expecting too
much and go away dissatisfied. I am
satisfied that there are lands in the
state which would suit the whims
and desires of any person in the world
if they would only take the trorfble
to look for the particular piece of land
which thev wish.

Cottondale,, Fla,, Feb. 12. Notwith
standing that the meeting was hld
on very brief notice, a fair-sized au
dience greeted the speakers in the
state educational campaign here Fri
day afternoon, and much good is an
ticipated as a result
The party arrived from Panama
City shortly before 11 o'clock, and pro
ceeded immediately to the public
school building, where they found the
principal, Prof. Cooper, and his able
assistants, Miss Olive Trammell and
Miss Estelle Hart, busily engaged.
The Cottondale Junior High School
has an enrollment of-about eighty
pupils, and the average attendance is
reported very good. The new school
building is not quite completed, but is
being occupied. It will be a very
creditable building, two 6tories, and
was erected at a cost of about $2,500.
At 2:30 o'clock the speakers were
introduced, Hon. W. M. Holloway,
state superintendent, being the first.
As usual, Mr. Holloway delivered a
most interesting address along prac
tical educational lines, in Tmcb he
made a strong appeal for better
teachers, especially in the rural dis
tricts, because he believed the chil
dren of the country were entitled to
and should receive equal advantages
with the city children. He also advo
cated longer school terms, and urged
other subjects for the improvement of
the school System of the state. At the
conclusion of his remarks, the state
superintendent was enthusiastically
applauded. '
The next speaker was Dr. Edw. Con
radi, president of the College for Wo
men at Tallahassee, and one of -the
j most competent educators of the
, state. Having devoted almost his
, entire life to the cause of education,
he is eminently qualified to talk on
i matters pertaining to schools, which
i fact he has plainly demonstrated dur
j ing this campaign. For four years he
was principal of the St. Petersburg
High School, which institution he built
up to be second to none in the state.
For thirty minutes Dr. Conradi held
the attention of his hearers, speaking
along the same lines as the state
l superintendent. He was particularly
earnest in his appeal for improved
, talent, btter and more thoroughly
; equipped school buildings, and longer
1 terms. He was pleased, however, to
.note progress along these lines, espe
cially in West and Middle Florida. He
was also heartily applauded at the con
clusion of his address.
Capt. Geo. M. Lynch, professor of
secondary education, University of
Florida, was the last speaker, but ;
owing to a lack of time, his remarks
were brief. The principal argument !
of his address was the urging of the
voters of Jackson county to select rep-:
resentatives to the legislature who !
would favor measures looking to the
development and promotion of tho
public schools of the state. The
speaker's remarks were interspersed
with a sense of humor to please the
children, and which did not fall short
of its purpose. Every, reference foore
its moral, however, of good practical
The meeting concluded with the or
ganization of a Woman's School Im
provement Association. Ms Lucy
Shumaker was elected president, and
Mrs. E. C. Welch secretary.
One of the most successful truck
growers near Jacksonville is George
H. Brown & Bro. Their truck farm
is located three miles northwest of
the city, and adjacent to the Moncrief
race track. These young growers are
native Floridians, being born and
reared on the farm they cultivate.
Their holdings consist of seventeon
acres, which are improved, fertilized
and under cultivation. The yield
from their farm is one of the marvels
of the productiveness of Florida soil,
says the Jacksonville Metropolis.
During the present winter, which
has been unfavorable tosthe growing
of vegetables, the efforts' of these
young men has been crowned with
The cabbage grown on three acres
of their land, much of which has al
ready "been marketed, will yield the
growers about $1,200. In eddition, sev
eral acres are devoted to the growing
of turnips, lettuce, cauliflower, rad
ishes, carrots, onions and "beets. In
addition to this, several acces are de
voted to strawberries, while several
acres are reserved for growing of
field crops, such as corn, Irish pota
toes, melons, etc.
Their truck farm is a great object
lesson to the truck grower and is
worthy of a visit and observation of
those intending to engage in this
healthful and interesting Dusiness.
Methods of Culture.
The methods of culture observed by
these growers are worthy of notice.
First, the ground is well prepared
and highly fertilized. Three wells
have been driven at a cost of $500,
to provide water in times of drought.

teams. These teams carry products
to the city and return with a load of
fertilizer. One hundred and forty
hogs and pigs are now on hand to con
sume the unsalable portion of the
crops. Nothing is allowed to go to
waste, but an effort is made to turn
everything into cash.
That it is a great money-making
business must be conceded. The se
cret is in having some product on
hand at all times to sell. It is not
an extravagant estimate to place the
value of the annual product of this
seventeen-acre farm at $4,000.

points on the -old crop months and un
changed to 2 points up on the new. Liver
pool futures were higher than expected
