Get the habit of "boosting" our town nd couuty all the t;ra-. i'i will help in more ways than one can tell. ffbi'.'a the matter with hav ing a rattlinff ca ra p a I g n among the various candidates for public office in this county? There are many questions upon which the voting people should be informed and of cour&e each candidate for office is willing to let the people know where be stands upon the questions prom inent before the public. We know a speaking campaign has not been the custom in this county for many years but now is a- good time to make it a cus tom. Let the Executive Com mittee prepare a campaign pro gram providing for a meeting of the candidates in the several precincts. The candidates, we think, would enjoy it and we know that the people would de rive benefit trom hearing the Duolic questions discussed.

The lady directors of the Daniel Memorial Orphan age in Jacksonville.of which Mrs. Susan Hartridge is presi dent, covered themselves with glory when they spurned the offer of president' Brown of the race course who tendered the orphanage one half of the pro ceeds arising from a .Sunday night performance of the Mon crief Minstrels amounting to more than five hundred dollars. There are hundreds of people who will argue (hut the money being for a charitable purpose should have been accepted, but we agree with Mrs. Hartridge who saW that "God had taken care of the institution for many years and would continue to do so without the officers accepting money arising from SuDday des. ecration." The faith of the good women was rewarded speed ily by the voluntary contribu tion of admirers of the stand they had taken, and the rive hundred dollars was quickly forthcoming. A'l praise to the good women of our land. After Govenor Brown of Geor gia and Mayor Maddox of At lanta bad declined the honor of introducing Commander Peary to an Atlanta audience, the lec ture tour, of the distinguished explorer in the South was sud denly cut short, and southern audiences will not have the benefit of listening to the story of his "dash to the pole." We are not prepared to say that Peary is a fake and that be did not reach the pole but it is a fact that doubt of the achieve ment is possessing the minds of thousands of Americans. pactpd n every boy's Spring Suit from 3 toi6 Many of the county commu tes are Qverridiug the prescribed rule of the State Committee and are ordering the names of can didates for Circuit Judge and State Attorneys to be printed upon the official primary bal lots. Among the counties where such action has been tak en we note Escambia, Lafayette, Taylor, Columbia, Marion, St. Lu:ie and others not now re called. Up to this writing the executive committee of this couuty has taken no action on th'e question, the members there of being divided as to what Is the proper course to be taken. A few nights ago a man was knocked down on the streets of Jacksonville and robbed of every cent he had on his person. When he came to bis senses he rushed to the police station and told of his adventure imploring the policemen to use every ef fort to reover his money be cause he was on his way to get married, and if his cash was not recovered the wedding would have to be postponed. A brother editor of the State whose name we won't print, is unkind enough to say in commenting on the incident that "some peo ple dou't know when providence is doing everything in her power to help them out of trouble." Poll tax is coming in slow, says our Tax Collector. Very few are paying this tax which is absolutely essential to the voting privilege. Under the primary law every man must pay this tax (or himself no other nu can pay it for you April 9th i the very last day upon which this tax can be paid. Better not wait any longer. Go nTHiivn EASTER SHOES, to see the tax collector to-day this very hour and get the matter straightened You would feel embarrassed to be- denied the privilege of voting on pri mary day, but it will be the duty of the inspectors of election to deny you this privilege unless your name appears on the list as having paid your poll tax.
