This Dry Law Haynes is taking pains to warn us of our danger; he hates to see the graveyard tea kill off the pilgrim stranger. The bootleg drinks are made by ginks who are not moral dandies, and he' is wise to all their ryes, their bourbons, gins and bran dies. Of poisons dire and liquid fire they are a sinful medley, and Brother Haynes, he still maintains that bootleg drinks are deadly. And Comrade Haynes, a man of brains, should know of 3 what he’s speaking he toils among the jug and bung and spigot sadly leaking. He samples rye and finds it lye, all kinds of booze he handles; he finds one brew has liquid glue, put in by Goths and Vandals. “Oh jakes and panes,” cried Helpful Haynes, “let’s all apply the swatter, to those who sell this booth of hell that makes the reason totter. It strikes men blind and wrecks the mind that once was grand and gaudy; so let us flay the heartless jay who sells this boneyard toddy.’ Thus speaketh Haynes; applause he gains from sane and sober thinkers, who’ve marked the rate that seems to wait for boot legwhiskey drinkers. —Walt Mason. ITEMS OF INTEREST TO FARMER AND STOCK GROWER ' (Continued from Page Two) The Farmer His Own Rescuer The discussion at t|p recent meet ing of the Florida Swine Growers' Association in Ocala reveal the fact that the leading fanners of this state are fully aware of .the fact that mar keting has become one of the para mount features of agriculture, that it is no longer or less consequence than production. Considerable divergence of opinion evidenced itself as to how the market ing problem should be solved. But all were in accordance with the idea that the solution of this problem is up to the farmer himself, and those closely allied agencies of agriculture. If it is up to the farmer, we have reasons to believe that the problem will be solved. The study of Ameri can life gives us confidence in the farmer's ability to work out his own salvation. No one can dispute the fact that the conditions of our farm life and farm people has ever been a true index to the industrial and social conditions existing in our country. 9 9 9 Suggestions or Watermelon Growers Watermelon growers of Central Florida should have their seed in the ground by February 20. Growers of South cr N<*rth Florida should plant a few days earlier or later. New land is best for watermelons. If you Cannot get new land, select a plot where melons have not been grown for five or six years. This les sens the risk of disease. Watermelon land should be broad casted and disc-harrowed two or three weeks before planting time. About ten days before planting, check eff the field and apply from 400 o 600 pounds of fertilizer to the acre, putting it around the places where the seed will be planted. This means that the fertilizer will become incorpo rated nito the soil and there will be less danger of injury to the seed from 'he caustic action of the fertilizer. It is a good idea to follow the first planting with ane or two others, about a week intervening between each. This is advised because frost is liable to kill unexpectedly the first plant ing. A LUCKY WOMAN A special from the Belleview Hotel at Bellair says: A gutst at the Belleview hotel here recently told the clerk at the desk she wished to deposit her pewelry in the safe. An hour later she brought down the package, with her name and home address upon it. Finding the clerk busy, she laid the package down in front of him without noticing it was not the same clerk she had spoken to before. When he was dis engaged, he picked up the package, put eight cents in stamps upon it and mailed it. Upon its arrival in Buffalo, no one bell, the pack age was left on the porch by the post man. Three days later it was found, and returned to Bellair, the finder knowing the lady had gone ther£. Upon its arrival at the hotel it was placed in her box with her other mail. Her astonishment may be imagined when she opened it and found some sixty thousand dollars’ worth of jewel ry intact.

AN “OWED” TO THE BEAUTIFUL <By Edward Everet Bell) Yes, some men may enthuse o’er the beautiful snow, To the length of a ream, or a volume or so; And may write pretty nothings with a great how-de-do, On the brave Esqimaux in his cheer less igloo. They may dash off their tales with a speed that oft tires, How that same frosty bird will thaw out his cold fires; And then mush in great glee o’er the snow-covered earth. How the keen, biting winds are oft moaning a song That’s the sweetest of music to speed him along. Just to gather some fat or some duff for his hearth. But # the loveliest snow-scene that I cna recall Was framed in a picture—and it hung on the wall. So, far be it from me to sing songs anr then mush Through the snow-covered streets, ankle-deep in the slush; And the north winds may whistle just any old tune, Quite so long as I’m basking in Flor ida’s June. While the chill draughts of Iceland mean nothing to me, As I float down the stream stealing out to the sea; Where I’ll rig up some sails and go sweeping away, O’er the smooth, gleaming waters of Hillsboro bay, ’Tis the lure of the southland — refreshing— intense. That smothers drab care —and then scatters it hence.’ Yes. the loveliest snow-scene that I can recall Was framed in a picture—and it hung on the wall. Ah, the crunch of the shoe and the whine of the ski Are the things that I’m happy to pic ture as —bye; And no longer I pine for the snow ,£hoes and skates. That were part of ray boyhood—my fond boyish mates; The flash of the paddle or the whirr of the line, W’ith a bountiful luncheon 'neath live oak or pine; And the scent of the orange bloom — lingering sweet, While some sparkling wild flowers embank every street; All a-clinging together Whve wrought the glad news, There’s a cargo Of Florida sand in my shoes. Still the loveliest snow-scene that I can recall Was framed in a picture —and it hung on the wall. Trespass notices, 10 cents each; or half dozen for 56 cents.
