Tallahassee, May 20. When, Sena tor King's bill to tax the output of phosphate mines was reached on the calendar of bills on second reading:, Senators Crosby and Eaton wanted the measure informally paSed over, but the author protested. Senator Eaton declared a third of the phosphate property taxes of the state were paid by the people of his (Polk) county and he had wired them that they could be hsard on this bill. They had answered no longer than this morning', he said, that they would be on hand, and he did not think it would be fair to them Jo consider the bill at this time. Senator King said he would be willing to do anything that was fair; but that this bill had been on the calendar a long time and he didn't propose to have it "put off until it dies." ; He f inaly consented to let the bill remain on the calendar of. : bills on second reading for the Present, but gave notice that he would call it up Thursday. If the phosphate men want to be heard, he said, they had best be here between now and that time. ' The measure taxes the lands of the mines the same as other real estate, but imposes a personal property tax on the output of each mine which must be paid by the-owners, lessees or operators McKENZIE ORTING & CO.

It Is very nsc Bssary that the public should under Hand the provisions that the govern ment has made for the retraining of the soldiers disabled to such an extent hat he cannot return to his former employment, nor can he take up a new occupation without training for it Without thinking, the public often :ontends that the soldier has "done his Jit" and therefore the government should give him sufficient compensa :ion 10 live without bothering himself about a job for the rest of his life. Upon serious thought this same public will realize that this condemna tion to such continuous inactivity is io kindness to the soldier who has sacrificed his health for his country. The government has planned a bet :er way, arid stands ready to show the mounded man that his country Still weds him, and needs him to such an stent that provisions have not only en made for his reeducation in'sine ltw trade or profession, . but tnat. aoney will be paid to him and to his inendents during the time required r his preparation for this funner rvice for the nation. The War Risk nsurance Bureau pays compensation 0 the man and allowances for the JP!ort of his dependents during the Wire period of his training. The amount given the man in train H varies according to the size of his ariiily. a single man gets at least " a month, but there is a graduated scale of payments for -a married man who has a wife and children, which is based upon the - family requirements. For instance, a married man living at home with his wife and one child would get (including the family allow ance) $S0, and if he. must, train away from home the total amount is $103. if he has four children' he will re ceive $177.50, unless he must, live away from home during his training, when the family is paid $122.50. Increase in these allowances is made up to the number of six children, except in the case of a widower, who is allowed an increase up to eight children. MORE ATTENTION ? TO LATIN-AMERICA BEING ADVOCATED Washington, May 20. That peace will be largely strengthened on the western hemisphere by an extensive interchange of thought among the .peo ple of the various countries was the burden of a statement by Acting Sec retary of State Frank L.. Polk today, in urging that the newspapers of the United States devote more attention to ews oi the Latin -American coun tries. Mr. Polk said he hoped the American newspapers would take this means of educating the people of the United ' States to better understand and appreciate the importance and greatness of our neighbors of South and Central America and pointed out that by lending their aid to the fur therance of this education the news papers would be fulfilling a public duty to the government. "The more we know of the other countries of North and South Aemri ca," said Mr. Polk today, "the less liklihood there is of misunderstand ings. The nations of the world are becoming more and more independent daily with the Increased efficiency of transportation and communication fa cilities. ;' Exchange of news results in evitably better relations and a fuller comprehension of the efforts that are being made by the different countries to solve the problems of civilization. Improved commercial relations are ac companied by better cultural relations. "One result of the European War has been to show the United States how completely our intexests lie in this hemisphere. With peace restored our interest in European affairs will be more theoretical than real, but wo have and must have closer relations with our neighbors in Central and South America. The people of Latin America are intensely interested in the United States. The newspapers of Central and South America print a great deal of news about this coun try. It would be of incalculable benefit if the newspapers of the United States would .nay more attention to news re garding Latin-America and in a very short time these newspapers could ed ucate the public tP seek , further in formation and more news about our neighbors to the south."

Tallahasees, May 20. Two things happened in the house Friday for the first time during a day sitting since this session opened. The house re fused to recede from its amendment to a senate bill on the request of the senate to do so, and a roll call later in the day showed no quorum present. The absence of absentees at roll call at the time was not at all surprising. The regular time for adjourning is late enough, but it had Hong since passed, and still there was a plea for a local bill to get by before adjourn ment. The only surprising thing Is that a quorum coold be called back in about a minute. In the senate for a great many years there has - been very little effort to enforce the rule against smoking, ex cept just enough to prevent the cham ber from being turned into a regular smoking room by outsiders. And the senate is always up. with its work. The house has held on to the anti quated rule most rigidly, and as a re sult there is puch confusion by the members running out and back into the haL They go out to smoke. One Saturday afternoon" the rule was sus pended for the one session, and it is a fact that more , was accomplished at that session than at any one meet ing since the legislature met. Smokers will smoke. It it inter fere with business, they generally cut out the business for a while at least. Rules have never been able to change this one characteristic of men. The extra session last winter abolished the rules against smoking. It is an indisputable fact that it accomplished more in thirteen days than any legis lature that ever ' met in this state. And there was never any question about a quorum, and only a minimum of annoyance by talking and walking about the room. Only three more weeks Of the session,- and the house has reached bills on third reading just a few times up to date. The chance for doing so in the near future is extremely improb able. So many special orders have been set and are continually belni set, that there is Mttle chance for the regular calendar. If a member can get two-thirds of the members to agree with him and Set his bill for a time certain, he has some hope of getting It;. tp. . Otherwise there, is lit tle chance. - This- conclusion is ot course based on the Pat." Henry theory ' of judging the future by the light of the past. The dedication of the Spanish Trail bridge across the Chattahoochee river, to take place on the-Oth inst., is one of the most important happen ings in this section of the state for a long time. The difficulty of crossing this river for allf the years that have past and gone have . prevented - the mingling, ;of the . two. Sections of 1 the western part of the state divided by the river in a manner desirable to them. When this bridge is opened to travel it will bring about a great change in this condition, besides tre mendously increasing the popularity of the Spanish trail for sightseers .com ing to the state. The fellow who started the report a few days ago that a dead negro had been found In the ''- water tank here, had best, keep his identity- Un known to th city authorities. They are after him, and if he is found out the probabilities are he will use the brakes on his thinking apparatus the next time it suggests to him such a "joke." 5 Personal Mention 2 Friends of Mrs. Ruth Crabtree will regret to learn that she is quite ill at her home on S" and Gonzalez street.s Mr. Herron McIonald has returned to his home in Memphis, Tenn., after a delightful vilst in Ihe city as a guest at the home of his mother, Mrs. M.

All of the guests commented on the splendid meal which the hostess served It was a very simple meal, but it was splendidly cooked and beau tifully served. The table lin en, the dishes, the floral piece in the center of the table everything harmonr ized. The meal started with a delicious tomato broth. Then each guest was served with pieces of steak at least two and a half inches thick and cooked just right. Baked potatoes, done to a "turn" were served with the steak. Hot biscuits, made by the hostess herself, were alsp served. There were ripe olives, tomato ketchup, cof fee and delicious butter, which made the biscuits taste exceptionally fine. For dessert were served some wonderful canned peaches and a. large piece of choco late cake, also made by; the hostess I was privileged to be one of the guests at this Sunday night meal. I expressed my ap preciation of the very good food and the splendid cooking and the hostess said: , "Thank you, but I have served you with a plain meal, as you know, yet somehow I take great er pleasure in serving a plain meal because my guests usually like it better and besides I think THE BEST THINGS ARE PLAIN." "Right," said I, "The simple, substantial dishes are always the most satisfactory." I then remarked to my hostess : "The steak you served tastes as though it came from Wilson & Co., Chicago. You know I was in Chicago several weeks, going through the Wilson & Co. plant and I saw how they handle their beef. The Beef Department is a wonderful place. I saw how the beef goes through its several processes of treatment before it is shipped, how it is carefully guarded and inspected before it is allowed to go to the public, and I want to tell you that I never felt so sure of the quality of the steaks and roasts I eat as I did after my inspection of the Wilson & Co. Meat Department. I assume that others in the packing industry are equally careful, but I know what Wilson & Co. do to protect the consum ers, so I am naturally predis-. posed in their favor. "And the ripe olives you served and the butter and the canned peaches and the ketchup all tasted to me like Wilson & Co. products." "You are right about the steak. It did come from Wilson & Co. I bought it from my butcher, who says the meats he gets from Wilson & Co. are splendid and that he finds - his cus tomers like them very much. "The butter is" Wilson & Co.'a Clear brook Butter, and it is very fine. The coffee is Wilson & Co.'a Certified Blue Label Blend. Isn't it great? "I will tell you also that I used Wil son & Co.'s Majestic lard in baking the biscuits. "I gave this dinner tonight In honor of you, because I know how enthusi astic you are about Wilson & Co. food products, and now that I have had a taste . of them myself I want to tell you, hereafter I am going to buy the foods that I see in the butch er shops and grocery stores wearing that reassuring guarantee. The Wil son Label Protects Your Table. "That's i wonderful trade-mark when one thinks of' it and grasps its full meaning. I o all of- the marketing for our home and r am very glad that you introduced me to the Wilson & Co. products through your letters. You 1-ve told so many nice things about , the workers an4 the fine spirit they show, and you have told us so much about Mr. Wilson and how fair and just he is that I just can't help sup porting a house whose principles of business are so fine."
