SATURDAY, JUNE 10. 1916, THE PREPAREDNESS PARADE. All good Americans here will welcome in the preparedness parade an opportunity to show their patriotism and express their loyalty to the president, under whose guid ing hand the country has prospered so won drously and whose. far-visioned policy has kept us from war. Many years ago the issue was, No en tangling alliances with Europe. Now on the eve of a national election the issue is, Whether or not we shall resist aggression from any quarter. No more appropriate anniversary could be chosen for Pensacola's Preparedness Parade than July the Fourth, and The Jour nal predicts a brilliant success. The Carni val Association, under whose auspices it will be held, should be given the earnest support of every club or organization in the city, and if this is done there will be a turn out of several thousand at the least. o WHERE TO SPEND YOUR SUMMER VACATION. Now that summer is here, the exodus to the north will soon begin, and many dollars will be taken out of the city. It is true that there are many delightful ways of spending the summer away from home, but it is also true that there are equally as many delight ful ways of spending the summer right here in Pensacola. ' Every year many men and women go away from Pensacola for the summer months who might very much better re main at home, and enjoy the summer here. Why not take the money that you have saved up for your vacation this year and spend it in Pensacola? It is safe to say, if you did this, you would get more real fun and greater benefit than in any other vaca tion you have ever spent. Few persons can get a real vacation for less than one hundred dollars. Usually the vacation costs several times more than that. Think how much fun you could get right here at home with one hundred dollars of good money! How many trips across the bay could be taken, how many automobile rides over country roads, how many .things you have already wanted to buy for yourself, but could never afford. . Why not try a Made-in-Pensacola vaca tion this year? Instead of taking a long, tiresome journey, putting up for a few days in a stuffy hotel, eating poorly cooked food and being bored to death, take your one hundred dollars and see how much fun you can get out of it at home. somebody ought to start a Pensacola .Vacation Club, with the slogan: "Spend your vacation money in Pensacola!" THE DAY OF LARGE THINGS. ims is an age of colossal achievement. The accomplishments are so stuoendous. the results of action so tremendous, that it takes a cataclysm to move the world, and a tornado to rock the emotions. Over the morning coffee each day men and women read of events the import of which is so great as to fairly stagger the intellect, yet they lay down the newspaper, yawn, and say: "There is nothing in the paper today. Down in Mexico the American soldiers. cold with the rigor of the mountain winds and scorched from the blasts of the desert, are making many a skirmish and sortie which should thrill the hearts of their countrymen. And men and women read and yawn and say: "Nothing doing in Mexico today." Over the sea in that tremendous conflict which has shaken the universe to its centre, the hosts of the world meet and struggle in victory and defeat, and while they are changing the map of the world, men and women yawn and say: "Nothing of interest in the war zone to day." Up in Chicago the most dramatic fight in national politics is taking place, here in Florida one of the most interesting battles since the days of reconstruction is being presented, and men and women glance at the headlines, and are off to the movies. The other day in Ireland there was staged one of the most dramatic revolutions ever put upon the stage of the world. In all the history of that tempestous people nothing so romantic has ever been a part of history, but today it has been almost tor gotten, for the stage has already been set tor other and larger events. On the North sea the other day a ship went down and Kitchener of Kartoum was lost to the world. The acknowledged Eng lish leader of the day went to his death, but his passing has been submerged in the great conflict of the battle of Verdun. And so it goes. Men meet and grapple and are carried down in this tremendous conflict, and other men rise up to take their places, and meet and grapple and are car ned down, and other men rise up to take their places. And the newspapers' each morning come out with stories that a few years ago would have kept the civilized world ablaze with interest. And men read and say: "Nothing much in the paper to day. World events are moving so fast, and the results are so tremendous, that th finite mind can grasp only so much of the meaning of the march of events. The day will come when our children's children will see the events of the dav in the proper perspective. As for us, we read of horrors which throttle feeling, and of heroism which passes believing, of action which staggers the mind, and fold the pa per and yawn and go to the moving pic tures. FARMING AND SCIENCE. Agriculture is what colleges teach, and THE SCRATCH PAD By THOMAS EWING DABNEY. farming is what men do for a living, says writer in the New York World. Like most aphorisms, this clever bit of phrasing sounds well, but will not bear a close in spection, for the man who makes the rea living out of farming these days is the man who combines practical work and scientific aining, whether that training is secured in the college, the agricultural school, or from government bulletins. The day has passed when any man may achieve any success in any calling without training. Competition today is keen and fierce, in all lines of endeavor. While this is not as true of the farmer as of men in other vocations, the ranks are becoming more and more crowded each day, and the fact is being: demonstrated again and again that the practical farmer the man who makes good, is the man who has studied his problems and applied wha he has learned. To any thoughtful persons, the wonder is not that farmers are succeeding by apply ing science to their calling, but that they have ever succeeded without a scientific un derstanding of thir work. The doctor does not attempt to cure his patients without a thorough understanding of what he is undertaking. The lawyer does not plead his case, without a knowl edge of law. The minister goes through the theological seminary, and the actor takes a course in dramatic art. Only the farmer believes that he does not need to be trained for his work. He leaves it all to Nature and to Nature's law, and when he wins success he does so at a most tremen dous sacrifice. It is time that men who take up agricul ture come to a realization of the fact that here, as in every other calling, there are things that must be learnd, and that these lessons must be applied if success is to ioh low. Slowly the farmer of the south are learn ing these facts, and are coming to the realiaztion that only through their practi cal application will success come to them. The farmer who works, and who brings to his work an intelligent understanding, will succeed where the other man fails, just as the doctor or the lawyer who is trained succeeds where the untra'ined does not. o . LOOKING 4 YEARS BACKWARD. Six days before the 1912 Democratic convention the leaders of the party, in cluding Norman Mack, Tom Tggart, Roger Sullivan and Urey Woodson got to gether in Baltimore ancf marked time while awaiting the result of the - Republican fracas. 'No," said the old farmer, as he pulled a cattle tick off a likely heif er, "no, I'm not going to set any traps in my melon patch. If the boys want to raid it, they are welcome. Just so ong as they leave me one runt of a melon in the far corner of the patch 'm satisfied. "I remember," he continued, rub bing the heifer under the ear, "I re member the first and only time I even set trap guns. The boys had gotten almost all of my melons the year be tore, and this time I said I would get even. So I planted half a dozen guns and pointed in all directions, with trigger wires criscrossing the patch. "Now, said I to myself, I've got em. "Well I kept the young vines njce- y hoed, and they made a wonderful growth. It was the year people still talk of as the great melon year. One morning a month or so after the last hoeing, I thought I would take a look through the patch to see how the fruit was holding. I opened the gate, such a mass of vine you never saw in your life. I took one step and then 'most fainted! "I had plumb forgotten where the guns were, and they were all covered with the vines! "Well sir, you neer did see such melons. Looked like they were as big as a barrel. You could hear them grow. They strained the fence could just imagine myself eating one under an oak tree on the bank of a river some sweltering day, then laying back, pulling my hat over my eyes, and fading away into a sweet watermelon doze! You ever been there son? "But I dasn't.set my foot inside of the patch. People passing down the road would stop and gape, and it looked to me like every city fellow who had an automobile tried to buy melons from me that summer. I calculate I lost about two hundred dollars. "By and by fall came, and the mel ons all shrunk and rotted away and the leaves dried, and I eot those counfounded guns and dumped them into the river the same river that had the oak tree on the bank! "But there never has been a season to equal that one. I went a whole year without watermelon once, and J 9A. . A . . . aon c want to run tne cfiance ag No me Whoa, gin. Now she's i pretty thing, ain't she; but Sightly sir, flighty; can't stand a little thing like a tickle in the ear a-tall." Now Tampa is talking about a Pre paredness parade. But Pensacola beat it to it! Now that the man came anion? us the design of whose shirt is plainly visible through the back of his coat, we hereby register a solemn vow not to allude to'feminine peek-a-boo. We agree with the New Orleans States that it's not new designs on dimes, quarters, -nd halves that the country needs, but more of the old models. Hurrah for the Prepared Parade.

Ails. Towing the barge Harry Morse, the steam tug Asher J. Hudson has ar rived in Mobile, and reports a voyage without incident. The barge was the one filled out with & cargo of coal from the Alabama mines at Pensacola last? month and sent to Cuba, and it was reported upon a return of the Morse that the Cuban buyers were highly pleased with the fuel product, obtained from a new source. This is taken to mean that other exports are possible through this and other gulf ports to the Cuban buyers. Until quite recently, it Is said, Cuba has been drawingupon Atlantic ports for her coal supply, and until the Morse and a former schooner supplied the Alabama product at what is re ported to have been much of a sav ing, the gulf ports were not looked upon as coal shipping points. As sat isfactory shipments of the two trial cargoes was the result of the first at tempts, quite a business is looked for through Pensacola and other gulf ports.

STEAMER READY TO HRE GO AUSTRIAN VESSEL HAS HAD STEAM UP AND PLACED ALL DERRICKS IN TOSITION, TO - REMOVE THE PHOSPHATE. BAPTIST ACADEMY NOW OUT OF DEBT I The West Florida Baptist Associa tion and Woman's Auxiliary Conven tion convening last nigh;, at Mt. Olive Baptist church, Rev M. C. II. Dilliard pastor. Both conventions are largely attended. The Association is com posed largely of the pasters of the dis trict, while quite a number of lay men are in attendance. The Associa tion is presided over by Rev E. L. Simpson, this being his sixth conse-j cutive election. The Woman's con-; vention is presided over by L. F. Thos. The meeting are in every re spect interesting and harmonous and of general uplift. One of the most interesting features of this session is the burning of the mortgage of The West Florida Baptist Academy pro-! perty., situated in the north western; part of th'city. With steam up and ready to move to whatever dock she is assigned, the Austrian steamship Lucia presented a lively appearance yesterday in the harbor, after lying at anchor for near ly two hours. It is planned to have the steamer come to one of the city wharves whenever proper arrange ments are made, in order to place in cars for transportation elsewhere the 6,000 tons of Florida phosphate Kvhich have been in her holds for nearly two years. There are a number of officers on the steamer, but they were last night unadvised when she would come up to the wharf, or what arrangements had been made to discharge her cargo. They had been notified, however, to get the steamer in readiness to move and to work with her own steam power, and these instructions have been followed out to the letter. Ii. addition to raising steam during the past few days, the derricks have been hoisted, and this also gives the steamer a different appearance, for it was nearly two years yesterday since these uprights had been looked after. It is understood that the cargo has been sold, and that it will be delivered to buyers at some northern market, in railroad cars. It is known that inquiries have been made for scores of empty cars, and this i3 taken to mean that, once a sufficient number are on hand, the big and long-time inactive steamer will be ordered to one of the wharves, to discharge.
