BILL TO TAX THE
- PHOSPHATE MINES
OUTPUT: PENDING
BY HERBERT FELKEL.
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

DISABLED MEN
GET ALLOWANCES
FUR SUBSISTENCE
Washington. May 20. 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."

Planting Sweet Potatoes.
Sweet potatoes are preeminently c
southern, or war weather crop and
do best on a sandy loam but often do
well on clay loams, especially If it Is
ridged, says today's bulletin from the
national war, garden commission of
Washington. A rich clay loam usu
ally produced more vines than pota
toes if it is not ridged. Any poorly
drained soil must be ridged to provide
drainage. Throw up ridges two to
four furrows wide and set the plants
15 inches apart in the center of the
ridge. On level land make the rows
three to five ' feet apart, with plants
4 inches apart in the. row.

The only safe basis for a per
manent peace is a Christianized

Christian Churches to under- .
take the responsibility of unit
ing a world Christianity with a
world Democracy.
Men are realizing as never
before that the Church is the
great bulwark of the social and
moral life of the community.
The support of the Methodist

THINGS HAPPEN
I THE HOUSE
BY JOHN C. TRICE.
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."

DEAR FOLKS:
A group of men and wom
en sat at a round table in a
private home recently. 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."
Sincerely, William C. Freeman.
