Bryars, of 1321 North Davis street, is with the United States troops in Mexico, a member of the Thirteenth cavalry, now in pursuit of the ban dit, .Villa. He was with the troops when the attack was made upon the soldiers at Columbus, N. M., some time since, and which resulted in the present expedition being ordered into Mexico. The first news which his parents heard from young Bryars has reach ed his mother, under date of April 13. This letter was written on the wrapper of a cracker box, which had been folded over and pinned. It had been sent from the present location of the cavalry by auto to the states and mailed at Columbus. Needless to say, the mother, to whom the missive was addressed, prizes the note very highly. The young man wrote that he "was having a good time, and was really happy." He said that the weather was very cool where he was, and that he was satisfied, as far as the force had penetrated into Mexico. The note was a short one, but as it was the first received by his parents since he had ridden across the border from , Texas, it told a lot to them.

PROSPERITY 1 S 11 WEST FLORIDA BANKERS AID FARMERS TO SE CURE MARKETS FOR CROPS, AND DIVERSIFICATION BRINGS SUCCESS. (By J. C. HARRISON.) Bonifay, April 20. To draw a word picture of the exact conditions pre vailing in this thriving section of the "Land of Flowers" would require about all the words used in the Eng lish language to express progress and prosperity. , There has been a close organization perfected among business men gen erally which has touched and which is still touching the agricultural inter ests of this entire section. When it became known that cotton could not be grown here any longer, owing to boll weevil conditions, the business men became interested in a plan to aid farmers who might de sire to diversify. About one year ago a meeting of bankers and business men was called at Chipley for the purpose of taking concerted action in the interest of all farmers of this section. At this meeting which had to do with securing a market for the agri--ultural produce of the section, the bankers and leading business men of Chipley, Bonifay, Graceville, and Cot tondale, were present, and it was de termined to raise only what had a ready cash sale. Chipley interests agreed to handle the corn and velvet bean crop of thi3 section and to pay cash for the whole crop on delivery. Bonifay interests agreed to handle all the rice and meat which the farm ers could grow here. Graceville and Cottondale assured the meeting that eithe rcattle, hogs corn, beans, potatoes or feed stuff would find a ready sale at either of those places at any time. As a consequence of the Chipley meeting a rice-cleaning .mill and a general feed plant was erected at Bonifay. This rice mill has cleaned and prepared more than 2,000 bushels of rice during the past winter. This rice and much more was grown in this section of West Florida last year. It is expected that a much larger amount will be grown this year. Cattle raising has taken a hold upon the farmers of this section, while hogs, corn, beans, potatoes, sy rup and many other articles raised on the farm are finding ready sale for cash in every ' town of any conse quence in Holmes, Washington, or Jackson counties. Yesterday Mr. William Sessoms shipped a car load of hogs from here to New Orleans and he expects to make other shipments to that mar ket again in the near future. In yes i terday's shipment there were ninety- seven hogs, weighing from 100 to 600 pounds. The car contained ice to keep the porkers cool until they reached their destination in the Cres cent City. I am informed that a number of farmers in this section are this year giving special attention to growing early sweet potatoes. At least fifty acres have been set out in sweet po tatoes this spring within a very short distance of Bonifay. The Bonifay board of trade sent a farmer to Bald win county, Alabama, to study sweet potato culture there in order that they may be grown all the more success fully in this locality. Such are the conditions here. On every hand there is the appearance of progressive farming and thriving business conditions generally. Bonifay is one of the new towns'of West Florida. While it was only a very small way-side village a few years ago, today it has many beauti ful brick and stone buildings, water works, paved sidewalks, two banks and other business institutions which would do credit to any section of the entire south. These and many other things might be megaphoned to the universe so that all may know that Bonifay is one of the liveliest of the many live towns of West Florida and the entire south. SPLIT I CONTRACT FOR CITY UNIFORMS ONE FIRM WILL FURNISH SUM MER CLOTHING VTO THE PO LICE AND ANOTHER TO THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. Austrians Say Russian Attack Was Repulsed BY ASSOCIATED PJUTSS. Berlin, April 20. By Wireless. The official Austrian report of April 17 says that a Hussian attack on Austro-Hungarian guards on the up per Sereth river In Eastern Galceria was repulsed. After examining a number of ara ples which had been submittec by half a dozen dealers, the contract for furnishing uniforms to the police and fire departments was split yesterdry, the M. & O. Clothing Store to fur nish suits for the firemen at $15.75 per suit, and $1.25 for caps, while Jos. Coleman will furnish the police uniforms at $18.50 fcr suits and 50 for the caps. The lids were advertised for open ing at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and all bidders, in addition to Bend ing letters as to the quality of tho clothes which they promised to fur nish, enclosed a check for a certain percentage of the contract, as well as submitting samples of made-up suits and materials which they offer ed to use at certain prices in the clothing. To amicably settle the uniform question, which has been a bone of contention for one season to the other, six members of the police and six mem'cern of the fire department were named to select the clothing. This 13 expected to end any dissatisfaction which might arise -when the clothes are received. Ml i Si I j!! 111! !
