It is reported a gentleman
wrote this poem after he had
lived sixty days in the vicinity
of
ALLANDALE
FLORIDA
If we could view at one swift glance,
All this great land of ours,
This land of wealth, of golden grain,
Of fruits, and shrubs and flowers.
In all, no brighter spot we'd see,
Than this fair state of Florida.
How like a fairy land she lies,
From ocean shore to shore;
A veritable paradise, with garlands
covered o'er.
She is all her magic name implies,
The land of flowers and sunny skies.
Her soil to labor here, gives back,
In wealth an hundred fold.
More fertile than the richest mines,
Of diamonds or of gold.
For Florida, herself a gem,
A Jewel in God's diadem.
When frigid blasts sweeps o'er the
north,
In all the winter time,
The people with their grips come forth
To seek a milder clime.
And thousands of them come each
year
To bask in balmy sunshine here,
Where soft and gentle zephyrs blow,
From Gulf coast to the sea;
Where golden oranges always grow,
On this peninsula.
Where no snow or blizzards ever
come.
This is the place to buy your home.

A mighty man is Rellly. He fights

his African hunting trip, he became a

pretty sure that if Rellly and his men
won the next skirmish mentioned In
the letter, he will learn of it in due
time through another letter from bis
friend. If he docs not hear, says
Hcmment, it will be because another ,
intrepid Irishman has earned the Vic
toria Cross without knowing it and the
name of W. J. Rellly has been added i
to the long lists published weekly in
London under the caption: "The Roll 1
of Honor."
German East Africa Joins Uganda
and when the king, kaiser, president
and czar let loose the dogs of war In
Europe, it was not long before they
were barking over in Africa. By way
of Mombasa and Zanzibar the news
spread to the interior and erstwhile
friends were bidden to be up and at
each other's throats.
The military force of the Uganda
comprises the force of Askarls the
chief has under him. Policemen Is the
name in English for the Askarls, 300
of them, all of the tribe of Uganda,
who wear their puttees on their bare

But Rellly had taught them to fight
hand and foot as they do In Ulster. He
has taught them to use guns and re
volvers and banished from their hearts
fear of the big game of the Jungle and
veldt. The Germans have real soldiers
: over there, but Chief Rellly wasn't a
bit dismayed. Overnight he made sol
diers of his policemen and the next
day marched 40 miles to meet the foe
on his own territory.
