Governor Gilchrist has direct ed a letter to the several game wardens of the State calling for a stricter enforcement -of the game laws. Now if he would call upon the various peace of ficers for s'.ricter enforcement ot all laws perhaps much crime would be avoided. But isn't it rather funny that it is necessary to call upon any officer of the law to perfojui his legal duties? We see by the Times-Union that our thriving little town of Greenville is soon to have a weekly paper. Hugh Sparkman of the Perry Herald is to be publisher, and Hon. Z. M. hlc Leod, member of the School Board, is to be local editor. The paper will make its appear ance early In July. In advance we tender our best wishes for a long and useful life to the new candidate for public favor. Well, now, we like the way those Valdosta people appreci ate their editor. TYu editor re ceived a cordial invitation to be present in that city last night as a guest at a grand banquet giv en by the citizens of Valdosta and tbe invitation assured us that "our best efforts are going to be put forward to entertain you as well as our time-honored friend, Mr. Brantley." M r Brantley, who, hy.the-way, is tbe editor of tbe Valdosta Times, has been appointed Executive Secretary to Uon. Joseph M. Brown, governor-elect of Geor gia, and his fellow townsmen are going to give him a grand send off. We deeply regret that circumstances prevented our be ing present at the banquet but from this distance we extend to our brother ttrantley congratu lations upon his promotion and our best wishes for his success in his Dew field. Discussing thequesiirm of who bears tbe burdens ot taxation, Editor Eugene Matthews of The Starke Telegraph says: "We are told that State Senator Flournoy ot DeFuniak Springs, after giving the subject of taxa tion considerable study, has ar rived at the conclusion that the poorer class of citizens and the corporations are bearing more than their share of tbe burden of taxation, while the- middle class escapes much of toe burden that they ought to bear. The plain, unvarnished truth of the matter is that pretty much all ot us dodge every cent of taxa tion that we can. The very poor man having little to cover up and the capitalization of the corporation being a matter of public record, they may come in for moe than their share ot the burden, as Senator Flournoy concludes, but tbe fact remains that we are a generation of tax dodgers aDd few of us, indeed, are without sin. If the realand personal property in this State were returned for taxation at 63 per cent, of actual value, the footing would not reach less than three hundred millions dollars." TRAIN THAT BOY. Give your boy some sort of training. Just what you train him 4n does not matter so much as that he receives training, that he shall early learn to become amenable to discipline. Put him in militia company where he will learn prompt obediecce; where he will learn that practice will make him have better control over his own muscles, ivhere he will learn the value of team work with his fel low man. Or see that he belongs to a good base ball team, where be will soon learn that discipline of mind and body, of temper and spirit are necessaiy for the suc cess ot his side. Train him to use his eyes, his hearing, his muscles. Train him to think, then train him to act. One ot the great values of the popular secret societies is that ivhen they take in a young man he is at once bound by certain rules, which be must obey. lie is taught to go through certain movements, to recite certain things and to act inconcert with others for the advancement o the particular society w i t which he is affiliated. Train your boy in habits of industry, of promptness and of honesty. Habit, when once formed, is a great conservator. We bate to change our habits, and a good habit, once acquired, is almost as hard to break as is a bad habit. Have the boy get the habit get a good one, and he will most likely keep it all the days of his life. It is easy to pick out the boy who has been permitted to come along into early manhood with out training. lie is a boy who loafs on the street corners and who bas an aversion to work. He is tbe boy who develops Into the furtive eyed, shiftless young man without a definite aim in life. There are too many of that kind of boys who are growing up failures because they were not properly trained in self restraint, industry, truthfulness and sobriety. Train that boy or yours.

It must be admitted that this is a heavy pension charge against a taxable wealth of only $169,803,230. In this connection an authority says South Carolina appropri ates for her pensioners $252,343. 60; Tennessee, $375,000; Texas, $300,000; Alabama, $778,361, and Georgia, for the year 1907, $932,635.65. Florida pays her Confederate pensioners more than twice per capita the amount paid by any other State Gainesville Sun. Our sister town, Monticello, is celebrating in great style to day. With Masonic, ceremonies the corner stone of. tbe new court house is being laid and we expect a big crowd bas gathered there to partake of the barbecue and other hospitality of the good people of that town. A brass band is in attendance and this afternoon a game ot base ball will be pulled off A cordial welcome awaits all who gather there to-day. UNDEKTSTAMD EACH OTHER A minister sometime past in taking charge of a church said to the congregation: "Now if I should do anything or make any changes in church matters that you may not approve, come to me and tell me about it, and don't talk to other people about it. We will talk it over and make matters all right." This is not on lr a good rule for church members to adopt, but a good and safe one for neighbors and others to adopt. When gossip starts in a com munity it is magnified and en larged upon as it passes from one to another until a mole hill becomes a mountain and friends are thereby made enemies when all could have beeu amicably adjusted had a proper course been pursued. We sometimes misunderstand people and con demn thern tor things said and done, when if we would go. ..to them personally things would prove quite different from what we had conceived them to be. Exchange. We are Jndebted to Congress man Dannitte II. Mays for solendid wall map of tbe United States. Our congressman will please accept our grateful thanks. "It isn't often that the Cour ier bas a paper refused, but a calamity of this kind did happen to the paper a week or two back," says the Plant City Cour. ier, "A fellow who lives a short distance out of town returned his paper marked 'Refused.' We sent him one more copy of tbe paper just to surprise him with the fact lhat the paper did not suspend publication, a fact which doubtless caused quite a shock to his delicately sensitive nature. We were not surprised, on investigation, to find that this dissatisfied gentleman was nearly two years In arrears." They are the only ones, brother, who "refuse" the paper.' We have bad several experiences of tbe same kind. Minutes of School Board Madison, Fla., June 8, 1909, Boird met pursuant to adjourn ment. Full board present.
