Frank Clark has at. last yot a "partner" in the congressional race over in the Second District, lion. Lewis Zim, State Senator, whose home r in St. Augustine, Jhas formally announced his can didacy for the seat in Congress occupied by Clark. Mr. Zim is a splendid man, but we are afraid that he is hardly strenuous enough to keep up the pace which Clark will set when it comes to the actual running. BLOUNT, BROW A HI), L'ENGLE, REEVES, TALIAFERRO. These are the Senatorial en tries thus far, and the race is yet some months in . the future. And asall these candidates come from Pensacola and Jackson ville (excepting possibly, L'Kn gle, who claims Tallahassee as his abiding place) It is not un fair to presume that other parts of Florida might want to shove some other Richmond into the field. If there has ever been a time when the business men of Madi son town should get together and do something for the town's good, that time is right now. And unless the aforesaid busi ness men do get together and devise ways and means to pre vent it, they are going to be losers in the commercial and prosperity game. We don't want to pose as an alarmist or a prophet of evil, but when we have ocular demonstration of a fact we cannot help but believe that such a fact exists. We state it again and with emphasis, that much which should come to Madison in the way of trade is goinj; elsewhere because the business people ol other places are reaching out and offering in ducements to secure that which by rights belongs to us. Good roads, low prices for commodi ties and good markets for pro ducts of the farm are some of the attractions which our neigh boring towns are offering and which are being accepted by more of our farmers than we care to admit. Madison offers no market to speak ot for short cot con, and yet a large portion of our county is given to its production. Madison offers no mill where the farmer may have his corn ground into meal and ! smaller towns and villages get the trade wfculi this industry carries with It. And we might go on and eoumerite many other things in which Madisou U de ficientbut what's the use? Our people know tliem as well, and better even, than we do, and they are the ones to apply tbe remedy.- Will you do it? Foa 8 alb A double-barreled ham nnerless sbot gun. Eioellfot bird sun.

Lake City In dex, September 17th. "I have carefully considered the matter of entering the race for United States Senator in the primaries of 1910, and I have come to tbe conclusion that I will be a candidate. Hon, W. A. Blount in Pensacola News, September 18th. Quit it, Thomas. This is the second political prophecy you have made in the short period of a few weeks only to have both of them exploded by the subjects of the prophecies. According to Peary, Cook has handed the public a "gold brick" in bis reported discovery of the North Pole. It looks like a case of "sour grapes" with Peary. Cook committed an unpardona ble sin when be discovered the pole without first asking and securing permission from Peary who, it Beems, is of tbe opinion thtt he alone was entitled to the distinction of the discovery, having worked for it so many years. We belieye that both men have been to the pole, and that Cook's success made Peary's discovery possible.

Ex-Congressman W.B.Lamar, writinir to the Tallahassee True Democrat, says: "I was sorry to miss the United States Sen ate, of course, but I am enjoying private life. Do as you please, say what you please, travel as vou please and no one to 6ay nay. Public life is fine, in a way. But it is an exacting life, for you have the people alwavs to please. And it is an expen sive life. Five years of it m Washington City cost my wife and me over 170.000. And my alary and mileage for that time was somewnat over 130.000. W both appreciate highly the boo or we had, but it cost us nearly 40,000 more than we received." And yet m the face ot this men clamor for the privilege of representing the people at Wash ington. But then, probably, most men would not spend as much money or have it to spend as did the ex-congressman from the Third. A Sprained Ankle.
