IMPORTANT REGISTER TODAY Under the new state primary law, very citizen of Florida must register anew or he cannot vote in the coming primary. The books are now open In every precinct of the state. Register at once today before you forget it or it is too late. Clean Up the Vacant Lots It Is safe to say that every city, town and village in America is disfigured by vacant lots; unimproved property whose neglected state detracts from the appearance of the community. Such tracts of land are all too fre quently surrounded by high board fences covered with flaming advertise ments. If in the residential or busi ness section, they are often used as short cuts across lots, or become gath ering places for the idle. If neglected a vacant lot may be come a menace, when if taken in hand and 1t be made of decided benefit to any community. In New York, Boston and other cities, vacant lots have been cleaned up and ' converted into small parks, where people in the neighbor hood may find a breath of fresh air. In Jersey City these spaces in the tenement house districts have been .cleaned up merely, and benches placed there for the accommodation of those who live in the neighborhood. It has been found in the larger cities that owners do not object to such use of their property, provided it is clearly understood that the occupation of the land is temporary. The first attempt of any kind to use vacant lots for a social purpose was mads sixteen years ago by Mayor Pin gree, when he was mayor of Detroit. "Filigree's Potato Patches." aa they were called, are now a matter of history- The same Idea that of affording the ipoor an opportunity of raising their own vegetables was followed later in New York city. But it has remained for Philadelphia to become the shin ing example in improvement for unoc cupied land, for more than twelve hundred acres in Philadelphia have been so cultivated. Another movement along this line is the school garden movement, which has done as much for the physical and mental development of tha children as for the adornment of waste places. Career Of Famous Kansas Editor Is Exposed. It was more than twenty years ago that one William Allen White, the modest editor of the small country newspaper known as the Emporia Ga zette, became famous through his edi torial on "What's the Matter With Kansas?" Since then this man White has been heard of from time to time, first in one connection and then another, un til now they are seriously considering him as a candidate for governor of Kansas and the Progressive ticket. This proposed candidacy, however, even though simply urged by friends, promises to prove h slundoing, for, in a' recent Issue of the Emporia Gazette, of which White is still owner and edi tor, his career is exposed as follows: A number of Progressives at Lar kin, more kind than considerate, yes terday resoluted in favor of this man White of Emporia for governor. They wanted him to run as a Progressive candidate. "To which the Gazette says no a thousand times no. For we are on to that man White, and without wishing to speak disrespectfully of a fellow townsman, who, so far as,w know, may be at least outwardly decent in the simpler relations of life perhaps he pays his debts when it Is conve nient, and he may be kind to his fam ily, though that's not to his credit, for why wouldn't be? and he may have kept out of Jail one way or another for some time; without, as we say, desir ing to speak disrespectfully of this man, we know that he is not the man either to run for governor or, if such a grotesque thing could be imagined, to serve' as governor. ."He cant make a speech. He has a lot of radical convictions which he sometimes comes into the Gazette of fice and exploits, which are dangerous. He has been jawing politicians for twenty years until he is a common scold, and he has set up his co-called ideals so high that the Angel Gabriel himself couldn't give the performance that this man White would have to advertise on the bills. "So, in the words of the poet, nix on Wilyum Allen. The Gazette's nose is hard and cold on the proposition to make him governor. He Is a four flusher, a ring-tailed, rip-snorting hell raiser, and a grandstander. He makes a big noise. He yips and kioodles around a good deal, but he is ever lastingly and preeminently N. G. as gubernatorial timber full of knots, warts wood-pecker holes, an drotten spots. "He would have the enmity of more hen who have walked the plank politi cally than any other man in Kansas, and his candidacy would issue an ar- revocable charter in Kansas for the Progressive party to be the official minority report, world without end. "Men and women would be tarmpled to death at 7 o'clock election morning trying to get at the polls to cast the first vote against him, and at night perfectly good citizens, kind fathers, and Indulgent husbands would risk a jail senttnce to get in at least ten votes against him as repeaters. It may be that the Progressive party needs a goat, but the demand doesnt require a Billy eroat. "Now is the time for all good men to come to tht aid of "the party. "But this man White is a shoulder- galled, sore-backed, hamstrung, wind bjroken, string-halted, stump-sucking old stager, who, in addition to being no good for draught and geenral pur poses, has the political dots, blind staggers, heaves, pink-eye, and epl zootic Moreover, he is locoed and has other defects. People in the state may bft fooled by the doped gait and fancy steps of this man White. But we know him. "And If he is a candidate? for gover nor or for any other office, we propose to tell the truth about him how he robbed the county with a padded printing bill, how he offered to trade og his support to a congressman for a government building, how he has blackmailed good , citizens, and has run a bulldozing disreputable newspa per in this town for twenty years, and has grafted off business men, and sold fake mining stock, and advocated an archy and assassination. "These are but a few preliminary things that occur to us as the moment passes. But if his fool friends insist on playing up this self-advertising game for him any longer, we propose to abandon twenty years of guarded innuendo and prattling subterfuge, and come out with the real facts. We shall speak plainly hereafter. "A word to tre wise should gather no moss!" There is nothing like the candidacy of a man for office as a means of finding out all of the sins of which he has been guilty or of which he would be guilty if given the opportu nity. Let us hope that if the senti ment for his nomination continues, the Emporia Gazette wil ltell us some thing about the crmes that White ex pects to commit if elected. Then we shall know the worst. In Denmark the school teacher is al most always furnished with a bouse, barn and a few acres of land, accord ing to W. H. Smith, a recent observer from the United States bureau of edu cation. "The tenure of office of the teacher is for life or good behavior, and 75 per cent of the rural teachers are men who settle down in their re spective comimunitias. (cultivate ithe small farm, act as choristers in the country church and easily and natur ally become leaders In affairs." Roadside signs, each containing a single catchy sentence in large type, are proving effective In warning against fires on western forests. They give the essentials and tell the im portance of protection against forest fires. Of 60S fires last year on the national forests of Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma, more than one-half were caused by lightning. Campers set about one-tenth and railroads one twentieth. The paper used by the government printing office each year requires ap proximately 125,000,000 pounds of rag pulp and 490,000,000 pounds of wood pulp. THE JOURNAL'S DAILY WEATHER MAP U.

TRIMMER APPROVES SUGGESTION FOR PAGEANT Molino, Fla., Feb. 4, 1914. Editor Pensacola Journal. I certainly think your article "His toric Pageant." appropriate. As you say, your city is rich with incident. In 1857 I walked up and down the black sanded Palafox street. No side walks then anywhere in city. We bought cakes from old Joe Wire's store on Palafox. Had to step down two steps to get In and played keno up stairs in the Washington saloon. I was then in the United States navy. In 1861 I wandered the same streets, proud of my gray Confederate uni form. Your city today is as finely and beautifully paved as any city In Amer ica or Europe, where I have been. No city could hold a pageant under more glorious weather or more glori ous health than we are favored with In Escambia county. I am waiting pa tiently for the 50,000 soon to come to Pensacola, In 1857, 3000. WM. H. TRIMMER.

In these days of doubtful medicines and dangerous drugs, a statement like the above is a pleasant assurance that Dodson's CL4ver Tone is a. reliable remedy for both children and grown ups. In buying a bottle for immediate or future use it is well to make sure you are getting the genuine Dodson's Liver Ton and not some spurious imitation that has copied our claims, but do not stand back of their guar antee. You may be certain of getting the genuine if you go to the Balkcom Drug Co. (adv) 7? PLAY FOOTBALL NEXT SUNDAY PENSACOLA TEAM HAS BEEN CHALLENGED BY THE SEVENTY-SEVENTH COMPANY AT FORT BARRANCAS.

Baby To Rule the House No Longer Do Women Fear The Great est of All Human Blessings. It Is a Joy and comfort to know that those mnch-talfced-of pains and other dis tresses that are said to precede child-bearing may easily be avoided. No woman need fear the slightest discomfort if she will fortify herself with the well-known and time-honored remedy, "Mother's Friend." This Is a most grateful, penetrating, ex ternal application' that at once softens and makes pliant the abdominal muscles and ligaments. They naturally expand without the slightest strain, and thus not only banish all tendency to nerrous, twitching spells, but there Is an entire freedom from nausea, discomfort, sleeplessness and dread that so often leave their Impress upon the babe. The occasion is therefore one of un bounded, Joyful anticipation, and too ranch stress can not be laid upon the remarkable influence which a mother's happy, pre-natal disposition has upon the health and for tunes of the generation to come. Mother's Friend is recommended only for the relief and comfort of expectant mothers, thousands of whom have used and recom mend it. You will 2nd it on sale at all dr:? stores at ?1.00 a bottle.
