The Jour nal will have a special correspondent on the. scene in addition, to Us regular Tallahassee correspondent. Frank L. Huffaker, on of tba best known as wall a one of the beat news-3p-aper men In the state, will represent The Journal and the people of West Florida, are consequently assured of a complete and impartial report of the legislative doing at Tallahassee. , The Journal has always made It a jvoint to oover the sessions, of the legis lature accurately and impartially. This year the same accuracy and impar tiality, with even a more complete ser vice,, win characterize these reports. The Journal has no az to grind, no enemies to punish, and no friends to reward. It can therefore afford to give the news and give It straight. Congress also convenes in special session at Washington this week and the doings of that body will "be covered by a special Journal correspondent in addition to its regular Associated Press service. All in all, The people of West Flor ida may depend on The Journal to sup ply them with all of the news all of the time, A Belgian scientist promises to man ufacture meat out of chalk and a few chemicals. But the Chicago packers beat him to that long ago. President' Wilson hasn't closed the open door , to China only the open pulse. " Journalists of the Past. So much is being-said in these days about modern journalism that the be lief is mstlUed that newspapers are very new luxuries. But there were some fTery able newspaper men several centuries ago. The Pulitzer School of Journalism selected list of newspaper men, of the past to use their faces on a series of medallions and that list in cludes Daniel Defoe, Joseph Addison, Benjamin Franklin, Islah Thomas, John T. Delano and Horace Greeley. It is claimed that Defoe was the father of what is now termed the - editorial leader. Addison did much towards establishing a polished English style in newspapers, 'and Benjamin Franklin's career is famntar to all Americana. However modern may be the present newspaper, most Journalists look to the past for guidance In style and methods. Every young reporter has had hurled at him this admonition: ""Boil your article down; they told the story of the crucifixion in less than 200 words." But journalism Is making some won derful strides. . ; ; ; It may be true that xmo makes hair grow on bald heads, despite the fact that Richard Wagner wore a skull cap., Market Item- (Spring onions are strong. . , - River Control a National Problem. The devastation of the great central valleys of the country shews that the control of the rivers is a national ques tion and one so serious m its nature as to bring it almost up to the point of being a paramount issue. The Baltimore platform declares it to be a national problem and thus com mits the dominant party to legislation along: those lines. However, it is not a party question. It la too big for that and should the engineers succeed In solving the problem of great overflows. It is improbable that any party or fac tion or section would object to the na tional expense necessary to carry out those plans. So far, the engineers hare not been able to suggest a feasible plan to con trol the waters. If levees are built, the bed of the stream rises so that the situation is but little changed. If channels are deepened, the floods only become more ferocious. If reservoirs are 'constructed, there arises the qnes , tion of location; besides, such reser voirs would be extremely dangerous. It Li a very Important problem and one that each year 'becomes more vital. This government has done some won derful things in the way of engineering and there Is no reason why it cannot solve this problem- a . . Now that the war department has spared the soldier the horrors of the "third degree," congress can scarcely do less for the war depatment Republicans Are at Sea. Republicans who desire to reorganize their party and bring within it all the discordant elements that may happen to oppose the Wilson administration are utterly lost for want of an issue that will stand the strain. Even the stalwart New Tork Trib une admits the time Is not ripe to at tempt this. The New Tork organ con tinues to advance the idea that upon the degree of success attained by the administration rests the shape the newly organised republican party will 'take. This is certainly humiliating. For fifty years the republican, party claimed to JJe the great constructive party of principle and progress. Now it is so poor, lowly and discredited that it dees not know what will be the doc trines and - principles it will advocate during the next campaign. The grand old party , is Indeed in a bad way. And there are few mourners. Whatever may be the case with fire insurance, tornado Insurance is one thing the policyholder never hopes to cash In on. , Mr. Bryan as , Secretary of State. The president and all of his ad visors have given unmistakable evi dence of their desire to move slowly and cautiously. In- this wise policy, the president, of course, has led, but contrary to so many expressed opin ions, Mr. Bryan, the secretary of state, has always kept his own counsel and has been extremely prudent Even Senator Lodge , says that he believes Mr. Bryan will turn out to be a great secretary of state. Even the New York Sun, for years the most 'bitter political enemy of the great commoner, speaks well of Mr. Bryan and refers to him as the "Mysterious Mr. Bryan, the man with the Mona Lisa smile." The great mass of democrats have never for a moment doubted that Mr. Wilson would snake a good president and that Mr. Bryan will make a great secretary of state. The ancient and time-honored principles of democracy were never forgotten, though at times the party leadership did fall into strange hands. The leadership of the party is now vested with real demo crats and so far as politics of the party kind can make it so, the future of the country is safe. In . England at any rate the woman suffrage question is an active Issue. An enthusiast argues that motor horns should ibe made to sound less harsh, and Should play tunes or at least fragments like church chimes do.

Tampa Times. At the conclusion of a leading edi torial published In his last Sunday's issue the . editor of The Pensacola Journal used the following language: "If there is to be but one customs district in the state the headquarters should by all means be located at Tampa. There is no reason, however, for reducing all of Florida's important seaports to a position of subservience to one other port. The business of Tampa, Key West Jacksonville and Pensacola in each case justifies a sep arate district and congress should re voke the present order and make at least four districts in the state." The opening sentence of the above paragraph evinces an admirable spirit of unselfish magnanimity, equaled only by that exhibited by the editors of Jacksonville under the same circum stances. They are botli in some par ticulars rival cities; but the editors of those cities forget the feeling of rival ry in their sense of simple justice. Tampa, figuratively speaking, lifts her hat to her courteous friends and cor dially thanks them for their good words. But Tampa does not desire to mon opolize all the greatness in the line NO MORE FALLING HAIR; NO MORE DANDRUFF HERPIC1DE Nearly every one has dandruff, and must reconcile themselves to the idea of becoming completely bald or resort to the use of Newbrtfs Herpiclde. The manufacturers have absolute faith in Herpicide to remove all traces of dandruff. So perfect is this belief that all dealers are instructed to sell the preparation with a "money back agreement Such supreme confidence is the be 51 evidence in the world of the merit of Herpicide. They know the result hence the guarantee. It protects the pur chaser. Used as directed, Newbro's Herpicide eradicates dandruff and prevents the hair from coming out It stops itchinpg of the scalp, which is so disagreeable. Send 10c in postage or silver for sample and booklet to The Herpicide Co, Dept. R.. Detroit. Mich. Newbro's Herpcide In EOc and $1.00 sizes is sold by all dealers who guar antee it to do all that is claimed. If you are not satisfied your money wiU be refunded.

The city most vitally interested in the matter of the location of collectors of customs next after Tampa is Key West. It would be ruinous to the cigar Industry of that city, which is second only to that of Tampa in size and im portance, for the manufacturers to be forced to rake the long, inconvenient and expensive trip to Jacksonville every time a question arose that required to be settled with the collector. Tam pa does not desire to ruin a sister city, between which and ours there is so much in common, In any such manner. We have attained our present para mount position by means of honorable rivalry. .We desire to retain and in crease it only by the same methods. The Journal is right There should be four diBtrtots in Florida, and they should be the districts of Pensacola, Jacksonville, Key West and Tampa, with their respective headquarters at the cities named. THE LOGICAL HEADQUARTERS. The Pensacola Journal, in a leading editorial to last Sunday's issue, force fully discusses the customs reorgan ization. Having one of the most im portant harbors on the gulf and doing a large shipping? business, although not in the same line as Tampa's, Pensa cola is quick to recognize the injustice of the new arrangement but at the same time, does not claim precedence over Tampa in respect to the customs service. In this editorial. The Journal says: . . i "If there is to -be but one customs district In the state, the headquarters should by all means be located at Tampa.1 Editor Frank Mayes, of The Pensa cola Journal, who was one of the origi nal Wilson men in the state and whose paper supported Governor Wilson zeal uosly for the nomination, was an ap plicant for coHeotor of customs at Pen sacola and was regarded as a certainty for the appointment- The reorganiza tion, however, has abolished the posi tion he sought Despite his personal ambitions, he sees that the only just arrangement possible under the new order of things 4s fo make Tampa the headquarters.

There is a general impression that if a pencil and paint brush be given a child, it is for the sole purpose of making an artist of him. No one ex pects him to become a bookkeeper, if he studies arithmetic: a writer, if grammar is the study; or a searcher for the north pole, if a geography is on his desk. His parents spend many, many hard earned dollars on music lessons, without expecting to rear a Mozart, and reluctantly spend one dol lar on drawing materials that should last the eight months of school. Be low is an itemized statement of a painting outfit: Paint box $ .25 Paper ." .15 Pan .05 Eraser " .03 Two pencils .". 10 Compass .10 Ruler . . . .i 05 Book 15 Scissors i io Paint rags Llotter Total . .!. $1.00 There may be an extra five or ten cents for paper during the year; blot ters are given away, and paint rags cost nothing, for alas! most of us own more rags than clothes. The second year the cost should be less, for If the child takes care of his ruler, compass. etc., only paper, new cakes of paint pencils, eraser, and book will have to (be bought making the cost 8 3-4 cents per month, or 70 cents for the school year. This outlay is not to make him an artist, but to train the eye, hand, and mind. Philip Gilbert Hamilton, artist and critic, says: "The eye which is trained by drawing discerns form everywhere, and in everything; the hand which is skilled to use pencil and brush will be generally superior in delicacy and accuracy of touch to the hand which has never been taught. The Question, therefore, is not simply whether we care to be skilful in draw ing, but whether we prefer a keen eye to a comparatively blind one, and a ready hand to a clumsy one. There are a thousand things to be done in ordinary life, as well as In different trades and professions, in which ac curate sight and sure touch are desir able." The above statement is daily illus trated in Pensacola. A former pupil sews for a livelihood, and says that drawing "helps her in cutting patterns and making designs for embroidery; another (breadwinner, who has local fame for her embroideries, says draw ing and painting taught her how to shade her flowers; one of our best win clow dressers chose that business through a course of drawing and paint ing, and the knowledge gained shows in his artistic windows- Pensacola's young deputy clerk took a course in drawing and painting, and later studied mechanical engineering, and all know of his rapid rise in the Louisville and Nashville shops. He can tell of the influence drawing has had on his char acter and career. France has given the world not only many famous artists, but the best de signers and artisans, and their work brings fabulous prices. "When Napoleon decreed that every child in the schools of France should ibe taught to draw, he gave such an impetus to the artistio life of the French, that, in this respect, no other nation has sinoe approached them." Great Britain has followed the exam ple of France, and drawing Is a com pulsory subject in the elementary schools. That some in America recognize the quaintness and originality of children's work Is shown by the circular sent out by John Wanamaker, in which prizes are offered for the best designs by children between nine and fifteen years of age. A newsboy in Chicago, with just one tool, a scroll saw, has made a fair-sized fortune from the manufacture of simple devices from thin woods. Our pupils have not made a fortune yet but some of their basketry and doll's furniture was sold at the fair, and at the art exhibit last week the spring styles in dolls hats were eager ly bought Another pupil through her paper dolls has gained a scholarship in a noted college. We have stressed the mercantile value of drawing, for "Does it pay?" is the unwriten motto of a large part of America; but there is another side to the study of drawing. It not only trains the eye, hand and mind of a child, but develops an appreciation of beauty In the commonest objects, and his enjoyment of nature is increased a thousandfold. A picture that was published In one of the comic papers shows the need of developing a sense of -beauty in some people- An old man at the village store is telling his cro nies all about the tourists he has just driven to the hotel: "When we reached the top o the hilL they all said 'oh!' and 'ah!' and what do you think they wuz ohing and ahing about? One of them common red and yaller sunsets." Our boys and girls mention the beau tiful sunsets and moonlight scenes, showing that some are impressed by their surroundings an 3, though they may never be artists, they will own all the lovely pictures nature gives them blue skies, the emerald gulf, and the sun, moon and stars are theirs.

It said: "The situation had be?n described by The Journal before, but a picture car ries with It something that words can not always express. When the people of Pensacola saw the picture which The Journal presented t them, to say that they were up in arms would be expressing It mildly. Everywhere pro tests arose over the proposed closing of city streets and these protests came from some of the largest property own ers in the city. "Yesterday afternoon Chairman Dave Kugelman, of the ordinance and en grossing committee, called a meeting in the city hall to hear from citizens on the subject and, although no pub lic announcement was possible in the si ort time that was necesary for the meeting, a representative assembly was got together by telephone call and vigorous resolutions we;., adopted pro testing against the closing of any streets east of the present railroad shop yards." Now, if a simple diagram so im pressed the people of Pensacola that they were aroused to save these streets and the bayfront for our beautiful city, can drawing be called of no value as a study in our schools?

INTERESTING BOOK ' BY PENSACOLA WRITER Editor Pensacola Journal Since your editorial of March 27, 1913, with above title, I have received a number of inquiries regarding the book, for the benefit of the readers of The Journal, and .with your per mission, I will endeavor to write a brief review of the book. The title of the book is "Social Wrongs and a Practical Remedy; A Public Property Reserve," written by the undersigned. The book contains fourteen chapters and my own biogra phy. In the first two chapters, I am il lustrating the present social conditions in the United States, and how condi tions here are rapidly becoming the same as in Europe. In chapter III, I am proposing as a remedy a public property reserve. This idea is based on the homestead act The proposi tion contains the following: That thousands of homes be erected every year at public expense through the dif ferent communities, or wherever need ed and until the necessity for it dis appears the ownership of these homes to remain permanently with the na tion. No person to occupy a reserve home more than ten years, during which time he would pay ordinary rent for the use of it at the end of the ten years his rental to be returned to him, minus the expense of maintenance and administration. Then, some one else would get the same privilege, and so on. Chapter IV contains suggestions for laws governing the operation of a pub lic property reserve. In Chapter V, I am attacking social ism and the doctrine of "collective ownership," and I am illustrating how socialism, if established, would create a powerful "official class." to which class the people would be obliged to surrender their rights and liberties as individuals. In Chapter VI, I am attacking mon opolistic capital, but at the same time illustrating how enterprising and fair capitalists would profit by the estab lishment of a public property reserve. In chapter VIT, I am discussing the benefits labor would derive from a property reserve. Chapter VIII contains a discussion of the enormous cost and permanent ex pense of old age pensions, and how in comparison a property reserve after a few years time would be on a self sustaining basis. i Chapter IX contains a defense of the American form of government based on past achievements and records ofTGregory street this nation, Dut I am aiso illustrating how that nation must heed the warn ings history teaches us in order to assure success in the future. In Chapter X, I am discussing pub lic morals, and in Chapter XI, immi gration; Chapter XII, poverty and pub lic health, and In Chapter XIII domes tic, national and international peace. Chapter XIV contains the erumming up of the preceding chapters. I have a number of manuscript copies of the book In circulation in your city, and I can state that they are being read with a great deal of interest; and it is also encouraging to me that this work has been adjudged as being of liberary merit by several competent critics, and I confidentially expect to have "Social Wrongs and a Practical Remedy; A Public Reserve, published in the near future. I also wish to express through The Journal my appreciation of the kind inerest my known and unknown friends in Pensacola are taking in me and my literary endeavors. CARL E. SWANSSON.
