Tlll'liMJAY, SEPT lO.JOO'.t. Governcr Gilcbri.it arrived in Tallahassee last Saturday from atm;ith's vacation which was spent in the creat northwest. He wan received by his home people with brass bands and military display. The governor, during his extended trip, receiv ed much attention from the peo ple of the sections visited, being wined and dined in maay cities. He made many speeches in the course ot which he put in some fine advertising licks for Florida which will redound to the proSt el the State in time to come. Mr. Merchant, are you rea:h- ini,' out for trade? Uo you ex pect to stay in the procession and sell your share of the foods which the people must have during the fall and winter? If you have not contracted for ad vertising space in this paper for the next few months you will fall behind in the procession. People who buy goods nowadays look to the paper to find who handles the beat lines at the lowest prices and they iro to those merchants who advertise. If you ar not already an adver tiser it is not too late, and a word will bring us to your place with a full line of advertising talk. The Jasper News ask3, "Why nof change things around a lit- lie instead of making cotton; to ' buy bacon with, why not1 make bacon to buy cotton with? Try it and see how it works." And that reminds us that one day last week we noticed a farm, er of this county leaving town with a canvas-covered, sugar cured bam stuck in the back of bis buggy. As if any sugar cured ham ever put out of the " factory of any packer could com , pare for a moment with a ham curer' by our own farmers. Is Madison going to get into the prosperity game? Other towns and cities about us are waking up to the fact that the day of "bard times" is past and the season of prosperity and progress is upon us. We want a grist mill, we need a short cot ton ginnery, a syrup refinery would help along, we need more industries saw mills, lumber manufactories, and such like and we just must have a hoard ot trade, chamber of commerce, or other organized body of busi ness men to look out, reach out and pull in anything good that is looking for a location. Wake tin. people, and let's get in the game. Hoecity Hoc- Areyoujuet barely getting around by the aid of orutchei or a cane?

Before the question is fully decided we will perhaps know "who struck Billy Patterson," Judge Lucius J. Reeves of Pensacola, made fotmal an nouncement last Saturday of his candidacy for the United States Senate. He promises to wage a vigorous campaign and expects to win. Judge Reeves held a term of court ij this county sev eral years ago and made a deep and lasting impression upon on our people. Ve are rather In clined to the opinion that when the ballots are counted at the close of the polls on prlmarv day next spring it will be found that Judge Reeves will have re ceived a large number of the votes of Madison county. t 8 Dnilv f 1 Daily Effective May lt iy09 . t 2 Uailv t 4 Daily r- M.- A.
