IEEP STEAMSHIPS PROCEED TO SEI Two steamships, the Euronian and the Nestorian, .went to sea yesterday, the first named drawing over twenty- seven feet, and the other better than twenty-eight feet. Both left for Liverpool, and they have valuable miscellaneous cargoes. The Huronian, remaining anchored for several days here pending an out come of German submarine activities off the coast of the United States, went to sea about 1 o'clock in the afternoon, and the other steamer, the Nestorian, steamed out of the har bor after she had loaded a large deck cargo of sawn timber. Leaving the coal docks at an early hour yester day morning, the Nestorian moved to the stream and worked four gangs of timber workers. At 6 o'clock she was under way, and passed out of the bay after sundown. - It it not often that steamers of this size ana mmension leave any port drawing such water, but along the water front it was not regarded as anything out of the ordinary by the shipping interests.

HARDY That the prospects are that the best exhibit of live stock ever seen in Es cambia county, if not in West Flor ida, will be shown at the Escambia County Fair this month, is the opin ion of L. f W. Hardy, superintendent of that department. Mr. Hardy is very much encouraged at the number of exhibits alreadyentered and at the general interest the farmers are manifesting in this department of the fair. . ... . He urges every farmer in the coun ty to enter some stock this year. "The fair is. one of the best educa- tional mediums in the world for the farmer, said Mr. Hardy. : "The live stock exhibit gives them a chance to get together, discuss the different breeds, the various methods of han dling and caring for themetc, and helps them to get closer together gen erally. -i believe that the salvation of the farmers in this section lies in the development of the 6tock raising industry." v THE OUTBURSTS OF EVERETT TRUE By CONDO. gHStJ-d, CeNTR4- CIVS HS CAST 2311 0 v HGUV DOCTOR IVISH YOO2 CofC Y0 THS- HOUSG TH MPS U ILU.
