Granl Jury Presentments Madison Fls., April 5 1909. In Madison Circuit Court, 3rd Judicia'. Circuit of Elorida. To the Honorable B. II. Palmer, Circuit Judge: We the Grand Jurors in and for the body of Madison county, State of Florida, chosen for the Spring Term of Circuit Court A. I) 1009, do hereby make this out General Presentment: First: We find upon investiga tion that the Public roads of the county are not in as good condition as they might be, especially in some sections, a:id recommend a move towards working of same. Especi ally do we call attention to the lack of interest being shown in keeping up the Clay roads of the county, that seem to have had no working or repairing possibly since they were constructed Second: It is with pleasure that we note that, crime, generally, seems to be on the decrease in our county. We note from some sections how ever there is a complaint of the sale of liquors in violation of the law. We would recommend increased vi gilance to the already efficient ser vice of our officer along this line to tbe end, tliat this immoral nd contemptible traffic be effectually and permanently stamped out. Third: Our public buildings are in vry good repair but we would I'f-o'tuiniad some attention to tbe sanitary conditions of tbe Jail, and f tiggest a coat of paint or whitewash to the interior walls of .same. Also new locks for the two outer doors. We would also earnestly recommend that sewerage be installed for both the Court House and Jail. Fourth: We believe that the Florida Normal Institute is of ines timable benefit to the county at large maintaining as it does a High school second to none in the State, and the largest Normal school in the State in which childien from all over tbe county can obtain free tuition for J Ten months in both High school and Normal Departments, and believe that the educational welfare of the children of the county demands that this school be made permanent; therefore we recommend to the coun ty Board of Public Instruction that they take such steps aa in their wis dom may seem best to put this insti tution on a permanent basis, by the erection if necessary of dormitories and additions to tbe present build ing for the accommodation of the school. Fifth: To your Honor we desire to offer our sbcere thanks for the courtesy extended to us, and for tbe able and impiessive charge with which you started us upon our du ties. And our cordial thanks are also extended to our able States At torney who has been untiring in his efforts to instruct and guide us dur ing our session. Sixth: We recommend that these General Presentments be published in the EDterpriwe-Recorder. And now having finisjei our labors we respectfully fk to be discharged frjm further service. Respectfully Submitted, Samuel I). Mokrow, Foreman. J. E. IIassei.u Clerk. Woman's Christian Temperace Union. The W. C. T, U. held its first meeting since its organization by Mrs. Curtis, on Thursday afternoon May 6, at the Baptist church. Plans were set on foot for imme diate work, the superintendents of the different departments appointed and sides were chosen for a lively membership contest. It is the earnest desire of the mem. bersofourW. C. T. U. that the ladies rif our town who haye not al ready joined us will real'ze tbe op portunity for beautiful and helpful work in the various departments tf tbe organization. Not only is its object to abolish liquor and saloons from the country but to instill in tbe young habits of purity and right liv ing. The mothers' department is one that should appeal to all who desire the best that life offers for their chil dren. Let us learn more of the vat field of works offered by this organization and when our eyes are once open ed can we conscientiously fold our hands and remain idle? p'edged themselves to keep tbe chil dren reminded of it. They are re quested to aend in proceeds from these boxes on the 1st of every month. A wide spread' movement is ud. der foot to enlist tbe sympathies and co-operation o' scliooj children in the cause of Temperance. To this end banner has been offered by the National W. C. T. U. to be given at the close of each year to the school raising most towards the stamp fund of this organization. Our school has enrolled in thin very important work, each room having put up a penny box, the teachers having 'The various labor associations cin perform do higher service to their members, can aeccmipligb, no greater good for themselves and their employers, than by adopting as a requisite for membership In such unions a provision that no mm who Indulges in intoxiciting drinks shall have tbe protection of the union and no man who drinks to excess thall remain a member of a union." Lexington Ky., Cinssctte. Texas has passed a CO D. Li quor law fordidding the shipment of intoxicants into dry counties. This app'ies not only to points within Texas, but alio prevents its ship, ment into Texas from other states.
