Keyser and if we had a few more men like Mr. Keyser In Escambia county we would not have any trouble to eradi cate the awful cattle tick which is de stroying hundreds of head each year and if the man appointed to prevent cruelty to animals could see the sight3 that I have seen there would not be any difficulty in getting laws that would stop these awful cruelties-to the dumb animals, cn which depends the human life for everything that Is re quired from the cradle to the grave.

M WAR FIELD5 WARFIELD'S is not only a first class grocery store, but also a very good place to meet your friends. They all come in here because of the great savings offered. Everybody eats and everybody wants to buy at the lowest prices high quality groceries, fresh vegetables and fruits from a clean store, therefore Warfield's inessential to all people in this city. We are not quoting any prices this week but it's real ly not necessary, as every article we sell is offered at the lowest possible price. ( Meet your friends at the busy store on the side street Corner Alcaniz and Intendencia Streets v i i w y liit ii si i i j if rr sin ii e e t Y ou r Friend : At by ticks and it. Is unfit for food, not alone that, but today you cannot ship any cattle from Escambia county on account of the ticks. There Is a right and a wrong way to eradicate catti? ticks. They do it in every other coun ty of our state and adjacent states. If you have proper men, men that un derstand "and have the experience there will be no chemicals used in making solutions used for dipping the cattle. jVIany years ago before you had any dipping vats Mr. Jim "Waters had many head of stock and I had a good many head myself. We made our own solution and we kept our cattle clean and free from the tick. Also kept cholera from hogs. I had many head, and he had many more than I. Ve never had cholera among our hogs. We treated every one with sulphur and charcoal and sulphur and charcoal will keep any stock of hogs from cholera and other vermin. I was out the other day looking over .the great acreage of fine land3 owned by the Lansing Florida Land company and on our way out we came across two bunches of cattle. About eeventy-five head in one bunch and about sixty in the other. To see some of these animals hardly able to walk and their shoulders and hip bones ready to come out of their hide and you could hardly put a dollar on these tick infected bodies from their heads to tails without covering a tick. It was a fearful sight and to think that, such damnable conditions lare per mitted in any civilized community. I would like to be one man among others who would apply a few of these ticks to the bodies of some men and representatives sent to our legis lature to make laws that would pre vent any such condition and I am cer tian we would have laws that would compel any man that owns stock to eradicate the tick by dipping and stoo this fearful cruelty to the dumb ani mals, and put our county on equal footing with selling and marketing our stock. As regards the fence law and other damnable outrages It is advocated to abolish the fence law. Do you know that you are doing the very thing that will prevent settlers from coming to our county as a man comes here and gets a farm of twenty, forty or sixty acres he builds a home and commences to plant his soil and before he fences in all his land some fellow that never owned an acre of land or raised a crop of any kind, but has a few head of stock or cattle, and by the time tne farmer gets his crop well growing these cattle come in and destroy it. I know personally of several settlers that would have bought farms in our county within the last six months and would have induced others to come here but there was no security in any to keep the cattle and the piney woods rooters from destroying their planted acreage. D6 you realize that all laws among civilized nations gives each one of us the constitutional right to exercise our personal privileges in any and all law ful undertakings, but we must exer cise that right without injury or jeop ardizing the rights of our fellowmen or in any manner interfering or caus ing injury to them? It seems strange to me and Incom prehensible that the citizens cf any community or county will permit of a public wrong that is jeopardizing an J causing the most serious Injuries to the individuals and the most serious drawback for the prosperity of your entire county and city. Let the entire citizens of county and city come together and have indigna tion meetings condemning in its en tirety any and all methods made use of by a few soreheads or irresponsible agitators or by the representatives you send to your legislatures, and you can put a stop to such damnable out rages, that a few irresponsible parties can set aside all the lawsef God and man and work an Irreparable Injury to the county. Citizens of Escambia county and Pensacola wake up and take immediate steps as a whole com munity that will forever put a stop to these outrages and allow a few men that have no consideration for the rights of their fellowmen to turn loose their stock to the detriment and injury of the farmers and prevent set tlers and homeseekrs from coming to your county and consider that any man or men who will constantly In jure or jeopardize the interests of his fellowmen should bo made to do right or leave the .community. . This is a very serious matter that concerns vitally every man, woman and child in your county and city and you should think about it and see the indisputable consequences and t?ke immediate steps to do away with this fearful wrong, and use the same means that you would do to destroy an epi demic of yellow fever or smallpox. Let your slogan be: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. CAPT J. C. PATTERSON., New Assessment Law. A speaker 'before the Bankers' Asso ciation at Miami last week, in urging the support of some measure to relieve the school situation stated that twelve counties in the state woald be unable to have any schools next year unless some relief was afforded." He also said that Dade county with an actual prop erty valuation of five hundred million dollars, had an assessed valuation of seventeen million. The total assessed valuation of all property in the stato is four hundred and seven million more than the actual valuation of one coun ty, and yet all property is supposed to be' assessed at its actual cash , valua tion. Do we need a new assessment law? DeFunlak Breeze. SHAKE INTO YOUR SHOES Allen's Foot-Ease, the antiseptic powder to be shaken into th shoes end sprin kled in the footbath.
