T" The Tampa Tribune editorializes, to "lhe extent of two columns, on the evils I i ef the race track as It now exists In Florida and says that racing is; done : (for in this state unless the gambling I f feature can be eliminated. Says the . .!jTrlbune: The only chance for continuing ,1 racing in Florida is under the plan .-'-outlined by the Tribune eliminating J its gambling features, providing strict official supervision for it, and com . lining it.' as a side-issue only, with agricultural and industrial displays - v and other forms of amusement.- ; But is there an instance anywhere C ef a race track paying with' the gam- : bling feature eliminated? As a matr ; ter of fact,- It is the gambling feature that makes the money and. when that ; Js abolished the racing has to stop. ; The law which goes Into effect May 1 prohibiting book-making and other form's of race track gambling does not , prohibit racing. None of the .state " Jaws anywhere prohibit racing. They reimply prohibit race track gambling. Therefore, if all the Tribune wants' Is 'to prohibit gambling, nonew law on ; ihe subject Is needed. And If racing can continue without gambling, then ' there is nothing In the wide world to t prevent a continuous performance in " any city in Florida. ; " A Short List o LJBeautiful Words. 1 A prize was offered to pupils of tho . Public Speaking Club of America, a New York Institution, . for a list of the -i twenty-five most beautiful words In d the English language. Words were 5! Judged according to their beauty of Bound and beauty of meaning. Slxty '" ftve persons submitted lists. The 3 prlre was won by James Shea, a Iaw !T yer of 418 Broadway. Mr. Shea's list contained twenty-one 'i accepted words. The Judges .'objected to" the word "grace" because of the i harshness of rg." and the "J" In "Jus Vice disqualified the word. Truth'' :rwas turned down because of Its metal- .a .. .11c sound. The following Is a list, of .-Mr. Shea's accepted words: ; . . . ' Melody, NoblUty; Splendor, Sympathy, Adoration, Heaven, - i Eloquence, Love, - Virtue, Divine, . Innocence, Hope, Modesty, Harmony. ; v Faith, Happiness! Joy. Purity. Honor. Liberty. V".. Radiance, ; These words all sound all right to :,.,4is although we see no reason why tha -"' author should have stopped " short of the original 25. There are still four to be supplied and as both Joe Hugh j Reese and Sir Edward Lambright are word artists we pass the above list " : fclong to them with the idea that 1f "Vanyone can supply the desired words :,--7ne of them can do it. No Railroad Passes 5 For Advertising. We note with considerable gratifica tion that the supreme court of the United States has sustained The ; Journal's long-standing contention re garding railroad passes for adver tising. " The Hepburn act prohibits the Issu Millions Lost Every year in the south by the ravages ol rats and Insects. Consumption and typhoid are carried by files. Yellow Jack and ague by mosquitoes. Rats hava vllft diseases. Fleas bite them and then carry thse diseases to valuable domestic animals and human beings. The damage done by rats, mice and vermin to stock and food supplies r is so great It Is impossible to calculate. To stop this terrible loss and prevent ..

But some of the railroads and most of the newspapers thought the newspaper . pass waa a pretty good thing and a test case was therefore taken tip to the t supreme court, ; We do not happen to have a copy of the supreme court's decision at hand, but from what we can gather it stated the facts and then laid down a line of logic as complete and conclusive as though it had been appropriated bodily out. of TL Journal's editorials on the same subject. v. In .other words, the supreme cou decided that a pass is prohibited and that newspaper passes are just like any other kind and are consequently fon the prohibited list. The court rea soned that If a newspaper could ex change its advertising space for trans portatkm, then anyone else could ex- change his stock in trade for the same thing, and If the exchange privilege was extended to one 'It would mean letting down the bars for all .Conae quently if there is to be no dlscrlmi- n&tionn the newspapers will have to pay for their railroads tickets In coin Just as anyone else does. This is all as. it should ' be. The newspaper man who can't ride and pay for it. Just aa everyone else does ought not to ride and under this ruling he won't ride. . The railroad pass is bad thing and It ought ' to have ' been prohibited long before it was. : ; Liberality with new Judicial circuits wlll.be an act of economy by the legis lature. . There was a time when Roosevelt waa known as the big noise, but Bailey and Macon have him so . far bested that he now sounds only like an echo. Colonel Bob Davis, of Tampa,' re quests that he be left out of the list of probable candidates for 'governor next time. This will be regretted bv many of the friends of the former con gressman as they were hoping to once more see him In the harness and working in the same energetic style of yore. -Mr. Davis, if he were to enter the race, would be a strong man, no doubt, for besides his old friends there are many who recognize his ability and sincerity of purpose and would gladly assist him In any way possible. The poor man has something to be thankful for. Last week Caruso had a sore throat which cost him three thou sand dollars. There is a possibility .of it not being necessary to redistrlct the state for congressional districts. The Florida Review for February has made its appearance. This little monthly magazine fully carries out what the name Implies. It Is full of Florida stories of Interest and poetry written from inspiring scenes in the Land of Enchantment. This month the management seems to have added many new advertisers and the Feb ruary number is an unusually good one. Some few have contributed to the Chinese sufferers, but there are hun dreds starving there while the people of this land of plenty., are not heeding their cries. Charleston gets a handsome Y. M. C A. building and a league ball team in the same year, which is going s6me for the wafer city. Getting a man from our boys to whip Jack Johnson is not as much desired as to make' the largest crops In the whole country, but since the latter has been accomplished why not let one of the fine specimens of physical man hood lick the big coon? Here's luck to the Florida lad. Blowing up the Maine the first time was accomplished a whole lot quicker than, blowing it up this time.

Some of the "heavywelg-hf editorial writers are taking- aerloualy the fling of the paragraphers at the Congres sional Record.

Pine Barren ,Fla March 10. 1911. " Editor Pensacola' Journal. Nothing In the "Vox Popull" column has interested me more than the sub ject recently mentioned by the Rev. Mr. Brown concerning the attendance of school children. I think Walker An derson haa found the sequel, that of compelling the child to attend school, Compulsory education Is what we need, and the parent should receive tho punishment for not sending the child. Surely children as low as the fourth grade are not compelled to help keep the family. We live in the country and have the same trouble in the chil'- dren not attending, and I am positive. in the majority of cases, it is only carelessness on the part of the parent in not compelling the child to attend. Other states have tried compulsory education and found It successful. Why not Florida? A movement should be started and not let another year go by without passing, this law and then rigidly enforcing it. A child should be kept in achool from six to . -sixteen years, and I am sure the schooling laid down by this state would fit any boy or girl at the age of sixteen to get a fair start in life in any line of work.

Was Just "A FoolinV Now that our brethren of the press have had their fun over the failure of the Herald editor to make good as a political prophet, it is but Just to him to explain that his prediction of 6,000 majority for Mr. Blount was made merely to tease or "bluff' Brother Goolsby, of . the Wauchula Advocate. The prophet really thought that Mr. Blount would win by 1.200 or 1,500. and so he would have done, if Mr. Collin and Hayes Lewis had kept quiet. Punta Gorda Herald. The Value, of a Smile. . It would be very Interesting anl highly Instructive if one could compute the value of what the smile has dona inlthe history of the world. There are statistics available whereby the wealth of the mines of the world, the value of the corn, wheat and fruit crops of a : country and the worth of factories, and even the sea, the air and climate can be determined. But there are no figures vast 'enough to express thfl value of the simple little smile. J-iKe the ray of sunshine, it comes from the boundless heart of universal love, it ,1s true; end so cannot be rela tively valued. And like tl3 sunshlnff again, it gilds with glorp all It fall upon,, and so is limitless In value. ..If you smile in your mirror, it smiles back; and it la the same with tho world. - As soon as the world finds out that you' have a pleasant smile it will bring you ' many a pleasant story. many a happy circumstance. Case flees from a smiling face, but looks upon a sour one aa an invitation to come and abide. Not all smiles have real sunshine in them. . Some faces have-learned the art of "making up" so well that even a smile can be put on so Bmoofhly that none but; a child can see its Insincerity, A child that has not learned . to de ceive has not yet learned how to be deceived. In every department of the commer cial . and social world everywhere It Is geniality that pays the biggest divi dende on. -the . smallest investments. There have been sweeter emotions Bmiled than can be expressed in any worde. The. . smile has always been universal "speech. It has ever expressed clearly this simplest the sweetest, the greatest emotions of the human soul. St. Petersburg Independent. . Large Watermelon Crops. Parties who know and -.have been studying the question, state that the acreage, planted in watermelons this year wiU.be. 17,000 acres and that the cantaloupe acreage will be 300 acres less than last year. This will probably prqduce something like 8,000 cars of melons and nearly as many cars of cantaloupes. This Is some produce for the railroads to handle. Ocala Star, Florida to Supply Western Marts. This season will mark the beginning of the time when Florida . will supply not only the markets of the north and the east. with produce but the markets of the entire nation and of Canada as well. From present Indications and from preparation made by the Florida East Coast Railway for the handling of the truck this season it is apparent that the j realization of this dream la already at hand. Nothing could be of greater import ance to the state than this as It means that there will always be good markets for produce, no matter what the out put may be. The opening of the far western markets will prove a strong additional factor in attracting home- seekers to the state and In Florida'. development. St. Augustine Record, The Thanks Editors Get.

We believe" the Scriptures have something to say of a time when the Hon shall eat grass like the c, but it remained for our old friend John E, Ward to bring us the news this morn Ing that he had caught a bunch of buzzards eating fodder from a stack on the farm of Mr. Arch Anderson. Now, if anybody else than John had told us this ,we would have found .It hard to believe, but he swore by the beard of Bunk Jones's goat that he was telling the truth, and we believ hlm. , e believe- those buzzards were Blount buzzards'; that they had heard how the election went and were eating that fodder for the same reason that dog, when he Is sick, eats grass.
