The Journal congratulates all of the
.winners and offers its condolences to
the losers. All are democrats nd the
successful ones are now the nominees
of the democratic party.
The contest for the United States
senatorshlp overshadowed all others
and the result Is a decisive one. The
total vote, it is true, was not large,
but no one can fall to read the mean
ins: of the majority who cast it.
Senator Fletcher groes back to the
senate with the satisfaction, not only
of re-election, but of havinsr received
an endorsement that has few counter
parts in the politics of the state. He

the srtate and for the. nation, and by
fm rt:nued adherence to the profcres-
pioned ho can. and we believe he will,
be of preat aid to President Wilson In
farryinK out the policies of bis admin
istration. Te Journal opposed Sena
tor Fletcher for reasons which It
statsd at the time. It has now no
apology to make and no rewrets to ex
press for its own coarse. On the oth
er hand The Journal con prat ulates
the senior senator and durinsr the next
seven years he will have no warmer
supporter than this paper in his work
for the state and in the shaping of pro
gressive and constructive laws for the

haves the satisfaction of knowing that
no man ever had more loyal or stead
fast friends than he and that 20,000
Florida democrats regret his defeat: It
Is worth while to remember, also, that,
thouh John Stockton has never been
elected to high office. It Is his stead
fastness to principle, his contirraed ad
vocacy of reform policies, and the
leaven of his example and teaching
that ;have helped to make possible
many of. the reforms which Florida en
The result of the third district con
gressional race will enable Emmett
Wilson to continue his good work at
Washington for almost three years yet.
There was no reason why this able
young congressman, whose fourteen
month's record at Washington has
been so creditable, should be denied
a second term and the voters generally
took that view of the case.
Representative Wilson is the kind of
democrat who is doing things at Wash
ington now and his re-election should
be a matter of satisfaction to pro
gressive democrats everywhere.
John P. Stokes made a game and
able fight against a situation that at
no stage could spell anything but de
feat, and it may be said that Mr.
S to ken takes- his defeat most graceful
ly. He is an able campaigner, a dem
ocrat whose politics is of the right
6rt, -nd young man whose present
defeat will not prevent him at some
future date, when there are great is
sues at stake, from "ooming back."
Ixically, Che election has resulted in
the selection of a strong delegation to
go to Tallahassee. John B. Jones will
be the peer of any man in the state
senate, while "Bob" Anderson and
"BilP Hurtenbach will make & splen
did team in the house. The Journal
did not support Mr. Hurtenbach, but
he Is a clean-cut, abie, and popular
young man and he will make good.
We congratulate him with the others
who will represent Escambia at the
For the first time In yeaTs, Escam
bia county saw a campaign free from
graft, from paid workers, and, for the
most part, from 111-feeltn and bad
blood. The new primary law had
much to do with this. May the future
political contests both in the county
and the state be equally clean.
The Small Farmer and
The County Fair.
The Escambia county fair will take
place October 19-24. and already the
farmers of the county are displaying
much Interest in the agricultural exposition-
Esch year, heretofore, there
I has brcn much rivalry between the
various counties of West Florida but
this fall the prizes will he all for Es

Those who visited, the agricultural
department last year and saw not only
the splendid county exhibit but the

ea.t variety of rroducts grown in the
!i0l of Escambia.
Thia year it is especially desirable
that the small farmer make an exhibit,

and select his exhibits for the

.Ih'?nt drL'ht has retarded

probable j,at the farmer will have hio
innings a. little later, and when he does
before old Dixie Xature gets in another
bad lick, he should be up and doing,
preparing for the future, and doing his
part for the fair in October.
The drought is not by any means
peculiar to this part of the country,
but is prevaJent to a great degree
throughout the south, east and west,
and when its backbore is broken, it
behooves every farmer tn Escambia to
get busy and do what is possible to
make up for lost time, for there is
work to be done, and plenty of it, if
we are to make the Escambia county
fair what it should be.
Jackson county is preparing for a
big fair this year, and Escambia
wants to be getting busy, if we are
to make as creditable a showing as we
should make, if every energetic man
in Escambia will do his part.
The annual fairs have come to mean
much to Pensacola. They should mean
There is no reason why the farmers
should not make good crops and make
them pay. Farming has never taken
the place in Es.mbla county that it
should take, and yet there is every
reason why this should be a good
farming community. The man who
complains must remember that this is
not peculiar to Escambia this year.
Letters from North Carolina to Pensa
colians, only last week, told of the
same conditions prevailing there, and
said that farmers were praying for
When the country is reMeved of the
dronght. we still have several months
in which to prepare for our annual
fair. Let us all get together and see
what intelligence, hrd work and eft
operation can do.
Remember that every iittls 'helps.
If every small farmer will, do his
part, the fair will be a success,--in spite
of all the dronght and all of the croak
ing. And without the small farmer,'-an d
his interests and aid, the fair is like
ly to be a failure.
If you are a farmer, do your part.
If you are indirectly interested in the
farmers, show that interest by helping
the fair in whatever way you can. If
you axe not a farmer, and. not inter
ested In farming, you are. orshould be,
interested In your home town. Do your
part, then, to make the 'Escambia
county fair the success It should be.

The Barefoot Boy With
Cheek of Tan.
The barefoot boy Is with us. Tn spite
of the agonies of the ground itch and
prognostications of thp hookworm, the
early morning sees him astir, going on
his way, "with merry whistled tunes,
and turned up pantaloons," His whist
led tunes are good for the soul. They
speak of summer, and woodland ways,
and dew-wet mornings. The birdsongs
are no more blithesome, even if more
tuneful, and there is something sturdy
in the very way the bare feet swing
down the path to the reed-fringed bay
ous. Summer is the playtime. All the
year, over the desk the men of tomor
row have been conning lessons of men
and methods and manners. Of nations,
and needs and notions.
But now summer calls. Mother Xa
ture smiles largely upon them, and
down by-paths they go, to sport with
glad spirits of the out-of-dnnrs.
Early swims In the bayous bring
lusty appetites, and long days with
ball and bat, bring dreamless slumber
"Blessings on thee, little man.
Barefooted boy. with cheek of tan.
The scene was made for you. With
out you and your whistled tunes it
would be an unfinished picture a pic
ture with the very heart of summer
May your days be full of happiness;
your early morning swim bring you
health and happiness, and your long,
happy, carefree summer days, dream
less sleep, to fit you for the world s
work, of which there is so much be
fore you in the years to come.
Make the most of summer days, bay
ou and woodland ways, for life lurks
just around the corner, waiting to put
you into harness. For there i3 work
to do, and the barefoot boys of today
are the strong, sturdy man of affairs
of the morrow.
Frank Chase landed as state com
mitteeman from Duval county. Well,
Frank at least has never denied that
he was a reactionary. Fortunately the
state committee, under the new pri
mary law. does not have much to'do.
Fighting the Filthy
The State Fod Commissioner of
Illinois believes, not simply 'In "swat
ting" the filthy fly, but 1'n the exter
mination of that disease breeding pest,
and he gives this advice:
1. Don't buy food from any dealer
who refuses to fight the fly.
2. Don't purchase fruits or vege
tables offered for sale unscreened.
3. Don't patronize any dealer who
hauls your food through the streets
and alleys unprotected.
4. Don't eat fresh fruits without
thoroughly washing or peeling them.
5. Don't keep garbage or refuse
around the house.
d. Don't throw dishwater and sim
ilar slops into the yard, as this
7. Don't allow flies to get von the
S. Don't allow your neighbor to be
careless as to flies.
i. Don't forget to notify the local
health officer of any fly nuisance. "
This is good advice and an observ
ance of it will go a long way toward
solving the fly problem.
The solution of the fly question de
pends upon the people themselves and
when they are all properly impressed
with the necessity of getting rid of
the pf-st the latter will disappear en
tirely. The Star notes with regret that The
Pensacola Journal has not accepted
the Star's explanation of its attitude
toward Fletcher's vote in the Lorimer
case. ine istar aoea not so ireai us
contemporaries. If it finds fault with
them about anything, it invariably
prints their replies, whether they suit
or not. Oca la Star.
But, Brother Benjamin, you did hot
print The Journal's analysis of the
Lorimer case. You simply re-printed
less than a dozen lines from it. Tgu
didn't answer The Journal at all. or
if you did we failed to see it. The
Journal will of course take pleasure in
re-prijnting any answer you may make
about if whenever your answer is published.
