A Pensacola boy, Charles Bryars, '
the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles F.
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
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.

BANKERS AID FARMERS TO SE
CURE MARKETS FOR CROPS,
AND DIVERSIFICATION BRINGS
(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
, 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
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
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
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
