This ts not to say that every PencacoUan should do simply corns of his buying at home, but that fee sjtould do all of It in the city where fee Is earning his bread, and Where his associates are making a dally living: It Is sometimes contended that goods can be bought cheaper array from teome than In the home snarket. This fn a specious argument and readily proven a weak one. It ta claimed that by shopping with the mail order houses money can be saved, because these houses can afford ' to sell at o much cheaper rate, as they buy In such large quantities, own their buildings and many their factor ies, and thus are enabled to give the prices of wholesalers rather than re tailers. This may seesa good, logical reason tag to the casual reader or the thoughtless shopper. But, following that lino of reasoning would not only put every merchant In Pensacola out ef business, but would strike such a Now to every Industry as to pauperize the whole community. This may seem a sweeping assertion to the reader who has not thought out the question of shopping at home versus shopping byxoatalogue, except ea rcaj-as lis convemence to tae snop per. ' The average man or woman does not realize that la shopping through the mall order houses he or she Is not only striking a direct blow at the merchants of Pensacola, but a direct blow at himself or herself. Nearly every merchanit In Pensacola rents his store. Many merchants In Pensacola rent houses. Every mer-j chant in Pensacola hires a number of salespeople, one or more . bookkeepers.' and sther clerical force. Every mer chant In Pensacola does banking. Jn Pensacola. Every time you shop away from home you hurt the Pensacola merchants. And every time you strike a blow at the Pensacola merchants you strike & blow at the bankers, at those who own property, at the rental agents at the bookkeepers, the steno graphers, the buyers, the clerks. When you hurt tanking you hurt the financial backers of the community. wjwn you nurt the property owner you hurt the real estate market. When you hurt the bookkeepers and steno graphers and buyers and clerks you hurt the backbone of the commercial Ufs, for you are taking the means of livelihood from hundreds of women sad men of Pesnocola. This is not idle talk. These are facets. Tacts that any sane man or woman can see. "When you hit the Pensacola mer Tihant you have thrown a boomerang that, sooner or later, will come back with tremendous force. Tou make your living HERB. You don't make It In Chicako. If everyone traded In Chicago there would be no living for you or anyone else in Pensa cola. Why not do your trading In the town where you make your living? fyomebody must have been telling young Mr. Astor that old whopper about two being able to live as cheap ly as one. The Journal's Christmas Doll and Toy Fund. The Journal Is going to start a Doll and Toy fund for Christmas. Every year appeals com rrom various per sons, asking The Journal to give pub licity to the need of caring for the little ones at the Christmastide, that their stockings may not be found empty on Christmas morning, and that they may not feel slighted by the good patron saint of the .Yuletide. The Journal has decided this year to have a Doll and Toy Fund, and will be glad to have contributions to It, from any who are interested. This has been a hard year with many in Pensacola, and there are many who would like to contribute to charity at this season, when everyone thinks of tha approaching Christmastide and the lowly Babe In the Manger, the Christ Child. But many are not able to give as generously as usual for Christmas charity work. And for these The Journal's Doll and Toy Fund win be a means of doing much good with little outlay. The journal wui do just as giaa to get a shining silver quarter or ten pennies from some little bank, as a dollar bill or a five dollar gold piece. Everybody can spare a dime or a quarter, for the children. Some can apare more. But whatever one can give, remember that it Is multiplied a hundredfold, when there are many small gifts. , Let each give simethlng and the dimes will soon become dol- ' i - J The Journal wfll carry a dally story . -opie ana events aeparcment wul ana uoy runa ana its purposes. Working with The Journal and help ing In the movement will be The St. Nicholas Girl, of whom the readers of The Journal shall hear more later on. The Journal will be glad to receive contributions to The Dull and Toy fund and will start the fund with contribution of five dollars. Remember the amounts contributed need not be great. They can be as small or as arge as o generosity or necessity prompts. But what The Journal wishes particularly to Impress Is the fact that there Is a great need "for thta work, enfl hat w, . . ww- with It. The St. Nicholas Girls will tell you' more about the plan of work In Tues. day's Journal. It's a pity the Chinese people's ex - J .X , J v .i1 , , -s70Yern- men should be utterly lost on the .. Let All Shop Early This Christmastide. Christmas la 1ut ntr everybody should beg-in to make nlans f or the holidays. "Shop Early" has become a wordwide slogan, and Pen- sacollans should riot be behindhand in xne cariy snapping movement. a. i . . The appeal for early shopping Is generally made to the women, but the men can help in this, too. Most men commission some of their womankind to do their holidav shonlne- frr them. and they can aid the eerfv shotmLna- cause materially by planning a little ahead of time this year for the Christ mas giving. The Christmastide should never be so commercialized as to lose its fun damental reason for being. Christmas giving is but an expression of love, euner to tne lndividuax orthe race. wnen It becomes less than this, it loses that quality of Christian charity ave occurred that were directly trace that makes it the leavening season of J able to the negligence and inattention the year the time of the twelfth- j of employes, and he strenuously in month that Is dedicated to others. eIsts that If everyone obeyed the law St. Paul in one of his beautiful epis- I ties to the Ephesians closes with these the -company accidents would be ma words: "Faith. HoDe and Charitv. terially minimized. These views are these three, but the greatest of these Is charity." Some translators have In- terpreted the word charity as love. Certainlv the can be no charitv with. out love, and St Paul says in this same epistle: "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and though I give my body to be burned and have not charity. It proflteth me nothing." To St. Paul charity and love were cer tainly synonymous. So the Christmtlm l tint a. te of charity In the modern sense of the term, but a season of love, In the sense in which St. Paul uses it. And unless it Is a season of love and "good 'tid ings" it loses its reason for being. Christmas giving has assumed such proportions with the growing popu larity of the celebration of the anni versary, that it Is coming to be, to some, a burden, instead of the "joy of giving" that it should be. Unless a Christmas gift be prompted by love, It loses the greater part of Its value. But there are other than material gifts that can add to the happiness of the holidays. And one of the in rvwi si rtr n for others. That "divine understanding" whu. w bu wmen Uie. I Let one of the first considerations be for those to whom, unless this consid-1 e ration Is shown, Christmas must be come an ordeal to dread. Instead of a time of "peace and good will." Let all make their plans and start their shopping early, in order that, in sofar as is possible, the great Christ mas rush at the last may be avoided. . rroDaoiy rnere are a rood many wives .whom it would be hard to make admit that tneir husband3 are not worrying over the income lax. 1 Obligations to the Church and State.

They are recog- nirlng the fact that many of the so- clal evils can be best handled by the laymen of the church.

Safety in Travel. " ' Xna oxt-recurrtn. fatal and dlsas I trous railroad wrecks that are startling L, country, whicn bringing BO muoll woe mlaery to so many I people, are attracting widespread at- tentlon, and, as usual in cases of pub lic .moment, a vast number of people are coming forward with solutions and panaceas of one kind and another which they are offering the public. An engineer writing to the Railway Ga zette, who ought to know whereof he speaks, because men of his calling are the first to meet death in case of ac- ioldent, does not Join in the universal cry for steel equipment. Wooden cars are less safe than steel, he admits, but steel cars are so much heavier that they Involve a greater amount of mo tor power to haul them, and this means vastly Increased weight upon the rails, , . . 1, V, JtAtH1 burdens. His idea is that a stop should be put to butting and rear-end collisions, and this can be done by reducing the speed to a normal , and 1 rational - measure, The American people are always too , ,v j to go from one point to another the only question that they ask themselves is, "By what route can I get there soonest?" They think nothing of safety, and very little of comfort. Their idea is to get there m the short- est P081 moment Railroads that cater to the travellng PublIc endeavor to attract business by shortening their i 5cTrifri n isa i im sa nn m mis Tr-av ititoqco schedule time, and in this way increase the danger of travel. This writer in slsts that we should provide first for the safety of the passengers, and . that steel V- and other considera uons "um me m later. n the Other hand, a superintendent, wno 13 ai5 Pisea w Know, lays me blame largely on the employes who, he claims, are reckless and inefficient, H ant of all discipline. He claims that the railroads have no authority to enforce their rules, because the various unions protect their members, leaving the officers of the road helpless. He cites numerous instances where wrecks nd observed the rules prescribed by conflicting, and, as in similar cases, there may be. a. modicum of truth in eacn of tnem- The .discussion of the problem from varlou3 should be welcomed, as u wU1 throw li?ht on the entJre Prob" lem- 80 that means mav be adopted for the protection of life and . property. No one need be told that too many lives are being sacrificed, in railroad travel, and that the evil must be abat ed in some way. Whether it be the Independence and negligence of the mployf the fault of the railroads themselves matters little to the trav-lthis eling public. What is imperatively demanded is safety and comfort in traveling.

BOWERS CAMPBELL, PROMINENT MARIANNA ATTOR NEY, TALKS OF THE GREAT EX POSITION. Much has already been printed abourt the success -of the West Florida Faar, held at Marianna this year, but Hon J Bowers Campbell, a prominent lawyer of Marianna and the secretary who was here to see Juds:e Sheopard of the f edecal court for -the northern district of . Florida, last Friday, slave some information regarding the fair, which is not generally known.. On Friday. Nov. 4. which was the last day of the fair, there were some thing more than 6,700 paid admissions to tnls fair, accordiner to Mr. Camp bell, and all school children and teach ers In the entire county of Jackson were admitted free, besides the num ber of season tickets and passes out, which must have numbered anywhere from two hundred to Ave hundred. wniie tne admission was only ten cents, the gate receipts were sufficient to please the directors of the fair and It is thought that the fair of this year is only an indication of what it will be next year. The first premium for an agricul tural exhibit at this fair was won by Calhoun county, but all of the exhibits shown were very creditable, according to Mr. Bowers, and next year the fair win rival any ever pulled off in West Florida. One of the interAsMn ar f n n tnrva -,f i fair, and one which shows the possibilities of the section represented. was a nog. taken right out of the swamps, which weighed five hundred pounds, without even being fattened. Mr. Bowers is much interested in the Pensacola Interstate Fair and said that he hoped that next year the dates and everything else could be so arranged that the Pensacola Interstate Fair and the West Florida Fair could co-operate with each other and the exhibits from one could be taken to the other. FEDERAL CQU HASADJOU UNTIL DEC. JURORS DISMISSED UNTIL THAT DATE COURT OF RECORD CON VENES TOMORROW MORNING. After disposing of two or three minor cases, the United States court for the northern district of Florida ad journed yesterday morning for several days. In order to allow the court of record of Escambia county to hold a session In the court of record building. All of the jurors m the federal court were dismissed yesterday morning un til .December 17 unless they are called for sooner, and the court of record will begin taking up the cases on the cocicet lor that tribunal on Monday. The court of record was due to con vene last Monday, but on account of the fact that the federal building in this city Is undergoing repairs and the session of the United States court was being held in the court of record court room, after sounding the docket, this court adjourned for the week, in order to allow the federal court to proceed without interruption. Wniie rapid progress was made by the United States court, the docket was not cleared during the past week and it will be necessary to continue the present term, after the court of record has finished. VARIOUS DRAFTS OF CURRENCY MEASURE Washington. Nov. 15. Republican and democratic senators of the bank ing committee worked on various crafts of the currency measures to day, the republicans adopting a plan for guarantee of deposits. Senator Bristow brought in an amendment to turn profits of more than 25 per cent over to the government to form a guarantee fund and redeem govern ment bonds. Chairman Owen said he thought the committee would adopt a unanimous report on many features of the MIL but would disagree on others.

Mallory Kennedy, Member State In my last article on Sex Hygiene I advocated sex education in the public schools, so that in the future, no young man could say, "If I had only , known." The Ladies Home Journal with its enormous circulation has placed before the wives and sisters of this country much information along this line; other magazines have taken up this subject, and if they will only keep at it, it will not be long before the future genera tion will be pretty well informed. I believe that The Pensacola Journal is the first newspaper in the state that has been brave enough to open its col umns to a discussion of these evils. Atlanta papers during 1912 ran a series of articles in which a spade was called a spade, but they were paid for at cur rant advertising rates. If anything Is to be accomplished toward protecting boys and girls, it must be done at an early age. If we put off until tomorrow what should have been taught today we will find that in the majority of cases we have locked the stable door after the horse is gone. Every. day I am struck by the ig norance along these lines among the laity. At the recent International congress on school hygiene held at Buffalo, August 25 to 30, ex-President Eliot, president of the congress, and chairman of the section on sex hy giene, said that he recognized that no SUDDEN improvement in sex condi tion, the prevalence of veneral diseases and morality could ever be obtained. The improvement must be gradual and the results secured by a combination of measures. No one specific remedy could be successfuL Segregation and the teaching of the church have both been tried without avail.

Chief of Police Sanders of the assault and rob bery of John O'Neal, of Brewton, Ala, on Hayne street last Thursday night, has resulted in the arrest of Henry Goldsmith, a young negro, making the third person to be taken into custody in connection with the hold-up. The other two are Osgood and Augustine Pettiway, also colored. All three of the suspects are locked up in the city Jail, where they will remain until O'Neal is ANOTHERNEGRO JAILED 1 THE J.

It was the general sense of the sec able to be at the trial. He is in a sanitarium for treatment, his nose having been broken and abrasions on other parts of his head and face be ing rather serious. O'Neal was as saulted with a picket and robbed of $300 and a gold watch last Thursday night while in the vicinity of the old depot of the L. & N. Goldsmith is said to have been with the Pettiway brothers previous to the hold-up and to also have been with them in Chas. Smith's restaurant on West Zarragossa street late Thursday night, where Osgood Pettiway is said to have displayed a large roll of money. Pettiway is also said to have spent money freely in the restricted district Thursday night or early Fri day morning, but so far he has been unable to explain how he came into possession of $143.40, which was found on him when he was arrested at Flo maton. When Osgood Pettiway was asked by Chief Sanders to give him the name of the other negroes with him in Smith's restaurant, he told the chief that he did not know his name, but when Goldsmith was arrested he said that Pettiway has known him for many years, having lived a few doors from him on East Chase street, where he was arrested.

The case against W. E Pearl was not prossed, but the trials of W. Suggs, A. Griggs, W. J. Corner, C. R. Edwards and Wm. Goldstucker were continued. Chief Sanders has given instructions to rigidly enforce the emergency brakt law, but in all cases the defendants are given a reasonable time in whiQii to equip their cars in compliance with the city ordinance.
