DAVIS, PROFESSOR IN CO LUMBIA UNIVERSITY, HAS FIN ISHEO HIS BOOK ON THE RE- ' CONSTRUCTION PERIOD AND CIVIL WAR. W. W. Davis, a young graduate and professor in Columbia University, New York city, has Just finished his history of the "Reconstruction Days and the Civil War'' In this state. Mr. Davis, who Is a first cousin of P. K. Tonge, of Pensacola, and is well known in thjs city where he has often visited his rel atives, spent more than two years in Tallahassee diving Into the official and unofficial archives of Florida, many of which axe stored in the vaults of the capitol. He also visited other towns and cities of the state, including Pen Bacola, once the capital city, to study their history. The following criticism of his book which has Just been pub lished, appeared in the Nrw York Evening Post yesterday: "Prof. W. W. Davis's stout volume on 'The Civil War and Reconstruction In Florida (Longmans, Green) add another to the long list of monographs on American history, economics, and public law for which we have to thank the Columbia University School of Po litical Science, and to which the palm of definitiveness may confidently be awarded. The author modestly dis claims any pretence that his work add3 greatly to the essential understanding of the period with which it deals, or that much that is new will be found in his pages. Students of American history are coming to see, however, that the working of public policy in the broad field of the nation is only to be understood fully when its course has been traced in the states also; and as an exhaustive study of a state during its seventeen most critical years, Professor Davis's work leaves little to be desired. Where the whole is so thoroughly done, comment upon the excellence of particular features Is hardly necessary. Especially inter esting and important, however, are the chapters on the. economic adjustment of Florida to the war. with the sur vey of industry, state finance, and ag riculture during the war period; on the conduct and treatment of the ne gro from 1S61 o 1865; on the opera tions of the ill-starred Freedmen's bu reau; and on the period of lawlessness and crime which attended the Imposi tion of republican reconstruction. Never, perhaps, has the course of a great political party suffered such withering condemnation from histo rians as has that of the republican party for the twelve years following Appomattax; and Professor Davis's Oil, Do Read This, Suffering Women! Wonderful ROOT JUICE Will Bring: You Joys of, Health Beyond Your Brightest Hope. Guaranteed. "T could scream with joyous delight at the wonders that this glorious ROOT JUICE has accomplished for me."
