Its Dry Law Haynes who new ex
plains that bootleg drinks are deadly;
so let's eschew the poisoned brew,
and cease to print things redly. 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.

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.

TAMPA TIMES IS SPENDING
MONEY
In newspapers circles there is much
comment on the way that The Tampa
Daily Times spends money for news
and features. It is the only Florida
daily that prints the famous David

full day and night reports of the As
sociated Press, The Times is building
up a highly expensive special news
and feature service, in its effort to
publish a newspaper that will be in
teresting to every member of the fam
ily in homes all over Florida,
Besides The Times membership in
the Newspaper Enterprise Association,
which is known as one of the most
compete news and feature syndicates
in the country, it gives its readers the
best comics obtainable—including
“Mutt and Jeff.” “Bringing Up Fath
er,” and “Doings of the Luffs.”
Two special features of The Times
are its sporting page and woman’s
page. Those* features alone cost them
an enormous sum.
In all Florida homes where an in
teresting and complete newspaper is
appreciated. The Tampa Daily Times
should have a place.
The price of a three month’s sub
scription is $1.75.
Orders should be sent direct to .The
