In addition to this "ver8 are classes being organized In cites for improving men in their 'to knowledge. In conversation with Professor Sbeiion Phillips, who has out pay, the correspondent has lpamii the plans of the state board to wish this work for evening and part-time education in rU the cities of Florida. Mr. Phillips states that much of this work had not yet been, promoted owing to the lack of funds td employ a per son to give it the attention which it requires, and this is particularly true in the part-time education in which the law requires a definite proportion of the industrial funds to be used. ; Fart-tune education oirers an ' op portunity for reaching a class of adults who ar engaged in some gainful oc cupation, but desire to return for in struction In trade extension or gen eral continuation course, and may be offered persons over fourteen years of age "who from necessity have - quit Pchool to labor in the various indus trial fields. , Keports for this year show that the boys in the ten agricultural schools have 104 acres in actual cultivation. Mayor Gnyte P. McCord has deter mined to get power for . the city, of Tallahassee from St. Marks rtver. He states that the fuel bills are heavier than the town can afford and that an eminent hydraulic engineer sent to ex amine the three rapids of the river has reported that at the one which will make the most feasible site for a power plant there can be had 25,000 norse power. Such a plant operated by natural water power could furnish electricity for all the lights and indus tries that Tallhassee has or may have in ruture, and the' capital city could sell more power to Monticello and other neighboring towns at a profit to zananassee and at less cost ' to the other, municipalities than they now are under for their electric power. Hon. Fred- C. Cubberty, of Gaines ville, United States district attorney for the northern i district . of Florida, under the Taft administration, and one of the leading republicans of the state, told the correspondent that the chances are there will be some .movement for a white republican party in Florida. Mr. Cubberly,' who is an attorney, is here on business before the United States court and to look on" at the leg islature. ; Already the one thing most com plained about in legislative circles is the lack of adequate hearings before the committees. In fact, there has been little complaint about any other. This has been due, perhaps, to the large number of bills before the com mittees, and the short time allowed by the rules for them to be reported out. But another cause now intervenes. "With two sessions of each house, and three sessions on Tuesday and Thurs day in the lower house, there will be still less time for committee hearings, because the , members do not care to absent themselves from the halls while important matters of legislation are being discussed and acted on, '; AGED CITIZEN DIED YESTERDAY AFTER A SHORT ILLNESS WEIGHT LIMIT ON PARCEL POST TO HONDURAS RAISED Effective yesterday , the increase ' in parcel post weight allowance for par cels - to - Honduras . became operative. By the new order the weight limit is raised from 11 to 22 pounds. The rate remains the same, 12 cents per pound or , fraction . thereof. This in formation will be of-interest to many local patrons, as numerous packages are dispatched through . the Pensacola office for Honduras. James O'Brien, for the past 40 years a resident of Pensacola, died yester day morning at 8:15 o'clock, at the family home. No. , 5 South Devillter street, following a short illness. The funeral services will be held from the residence this afternoon at 3 o'clock, leaving St. Michael's church at 3:30 o'clock. Interment will be in St. Mich ael's cemetery. Mr. O'Brien was bom In Quebec, Canada, in 1S32, coming to Pensacola during his early manhood, where ; he made- many friends, who are grieved by his death. The deceased was pre ceded to the grave by 'his wife three years sago. He is survived by three daughters, Mrs. W. C.; Nevberry, Mrs. It. C Livingston. Miss Xellie; O'Brien, and one son, J. O'Brienrall of Pensa cola; also three sisters, Mrs. T. Mur phy, -of Canada; Mrs. N. Xestor, of New York, and Sister M Bridget, of the convent of Montreal, Canada.

" (3y J. O. TRAXLER) In cracticallv every section state, though in soi.ie sections more than in others, the one-Iiorse breakius plow is in general use. In this time cf high priced labor, this is a wasteful prac tice. By the use of two horse plows man can break double the amount ol land that he can with the one-horse im plement, .and can at the same time do much better work in preparing the se-.-d bed. With the use of three and foar horse plows, the amount of, breaking is increased correspondingly, with still no increase in man power. Farmers too often fail to avail them selves of the use of a peg or spike-tooth harrow. This is a very important farm implement and will help materially n conserving moisture and fertility of the soil. One section covers about four feet of surface and is drawn by one horse. Two sections require two horses. iw) the more stations used the morse horsaa required correspondingly. Where break ing is done with four horses., it is ad visable to have a four-section harrow, thereby utilizing the horse-power .nd conserving man-power. In the cultivation of crops the one horse implement is also used in many sections of the state. This method aUo has proven to be expensive, inefficient and impractical in many cases. Where general farm crops are being raised, usually the method can be improved um upon by the use of a spine-tooth harrow or weeder when the crop is young anl later by the use of a two horse one row. GENERAL BJTJ. PROFmTTON BE UP TODAY Continued From Pasre One.) Lake Okeechobee. Senator Carlton introduced the free text book Mil, which for so many years was fought for by Postmaster Lambright, of Tampa, when he was editor of the Tribune. Senator Stokes introduced a bill pro viding for the payment of expert wit nesses. 3 A memorial from men coining them selves as fanners, was received ask ing that the present fertilizer laws be not disturbed and warned the legisla ture not to permit its members to ba "deceived by fertilizer sharks" into de priving the planters of Florida, the pro tection now offered. Just before the adjournment of the afternoon session the senate took up the three pension bills that had been made a special order of 4:30 o'clock and which probably will occupy the attention of that body during tly great er part of toorrow. An amendment reducing the month ly allowance for veterans and widows of veterans from $20, as provided in the bill, to 1 17.50. was adopted. The present law gives them $15 per month. v.The joint resolution calling for a- or rnsKihIv hv a. threft hnrsA t wr row cu . - tivator. on which sweeps and scootara constitutional convention lost its place may be attached, as well as ordinary in f i when I s it i tre j shovels or disks. Where this change ;-a.a be made it will . be found that much grc-attr acreage can be cultivated anu work will be more satisfactory, with great conservation of man power. The weeder is a laor-saving imple ment because it covers a lare area, and on account of 4 its ligat weight is usually drawn by ont? horse. It is u... cultivating peanuts, and in loosening S-'-e top son n winter, cover crops sucn a oats, rye, bariey and rape. Ali farmers cannot afford to buy extra horses and larger implements, and beioie doing so should consider the cost and probable gain. If tue cost is more than the gain it would be unwise to make tnJ investment. However, a good practice is for farmers to co-operate in purcliasing larger implements and double up their teams to operate them. This would briis good results and save man power. A tractor would : often prove to be more profitable on the average southern fafin if operated by several on a co-operative basis. Much work can be done with the tractor that is impractical with horses and mules, and these machines axe De coming more popular as farmers ac quaint themselves with their proper use. it ta hn ' elearlv demonstraiea iiu a trartor la a laDor saver ana ficient and economical machine oroDerlv operated. In some localities is now being used successfully under operation of one man. working over an entire community with one machine. In : cases where large acreages are handled J by a single farmer, one or more tract-s I are often found profitable. J This plan has been usea successiuuy with other large and expensive iarm equipment, such as threshing macnines, peanut pickers, potato diggers, manure spreaders, etc. The use or tne rwnu.e Bpreader has been demonstrated to profitable in more than one way. Practi cally the same time is required to load and haul a manure spreader to the field as for an ordinary wagon, but the spreader will unload in one-third the time required to do so by hand. The spreader distributes the load uniformly. This Is almost impossible by hand work, and for this reason alone it has been shown that as much as forty per cent of the value of manure has been wasted through un even distribution by hand labor. Where there is no spreader in a community it Is recommended thst one be purchased and used co-operatively or that on farmer who can afford to buy one, purchase and operate it for his neighbors as is beln done in some places with the tractor. If a man owns a spreader he should be willing to aBow his neighbors to ase It. for which they could pay a nominal rent. In Florida the corn crop Is Becoming more and more prominent, and to enable farmers to produce ' corn In competition with other sections It win be necessary to use good Judgment In selecting labor saving machinery for use In making the crop. It -will alPo be necessary to resort to improved "methods of harvesting an3 storing the corn.
