'Has Roosevelt realized his mistake?" inquires an exchange. Certainly not. He lias been and is too busy realizing the mis takes of others to give attention to bis own if he has made any. Of course there will be a large number of Madison county farm, ers present in town next week during the session of the Con vention of the Farmers' Union of the State. The convention lasts three days, commencing Wednesday and cont i n u i n g through Friday. Would not this be a good time to do some missionary work in the matter of rood road building? Why not have a meeting such as suggest ed by a correspondent some weeks ago, and discuss ways and means by which good roads may be secured. The death of Senator John W. Daniel of Virginia follows quick ly upon the death of Senator Samuel B. McEnery of Louisi ana. Senator Daniel has for thirty years enjoyed the distinc tion of being Virginia's favorite son. As an orator he was sup. erby elegant and eloquent, and his eulogy of Lee, next to Ben Hill's, was the finest ever de livered in praise of the south 's great military leader. Senator Daniel occupied a warm p!a:e in the affections of the people of Virginia and his memory will be venerated with her other distinguished dead Ocala Ban. ner. ' Before the adjournment i Congress Senator Fletcher in troduced a bill making the office of Internal Revenue Collector a term office and fixing the term at four years. Floridians will have no difficulty in seeing that this proposed law has for its main object the dethronement of Jse Lee, the negro who for many years has held down this "fattest Federal job" in Florida and whose retirement would be joyfully welcomed by the white people of the State, And right here we would like to remark that to Claude L'Engle, more than any other person, is due the credit of the proposed meas ure, because if Claude in his campaign had not made the matter of Joe Lee's holding this office a strong feature we very much doubt if the proposed ac tion would ever have been thought of. We trust that when Congress again meets Senator Fletcher willbeableto have his measure enacted Into law. Our new Senator-to-be, N. B Broward, seems to be an appre ciative man, to be sure. He made a fine speech' at Perry on last Monday to an immeuse crowd and as shown by our news columns is coming to Mad ison on Saturday, 16th inst.. to make a speech to our people Mr. Broward comes to us at an opportune time. On that day the State Convention of the Farmers' Union of Florida will be in session in Madison and he will thus have an opportunity to address friends from all sec tions of the State. Madison peo ple should prepare to give him a cordial reception. To-night is the time for the regular monthly meeting of the Madison Boarl of Trade. We are sorry to have to state it. but it is a fact, that interest in this useful institution is at a low ebb, and if it is to be kept alive and made to serve a useful purpose then the members must awake and take some interest in it. There is much which can be ac complished for the town by united effort and the Board of Trade is the instrument by and through which this work is to be done. But unless the mem bers of the organization take an interest in its affairs the work will go undone. Let every mem ber be present at the meeting to-night, and let all come with a determination to take hold and do the best possible for the cjamcn goodt Elsewhere we have suggested Good Roads" meeting for Sat urday of next week. This is rather short notice. Suppose we delay it until the first Wed nesday in next month on which day the County Commissioners will meet and fix the levy for the current year. A big crowd of good road enthusiasts in town on that day and something defi nite decided upon in a general mass meeting of taxpayers would go a long way towards inspiring the county commis sioners to do something for the buiidi':g ot uood roads through out the county. What's the mat ter with the Board oi Trade tak ing hold of the project? With an organized body of men behind it aud provision made to enter tain the farmers We could have a meeting which would mean something and be ot value to town and county. There is ud better index to the prDsperty of a community than the condition of its financial in stitutions, and it is with pardon, able pride that we direct the at. tention of our readers to the fi nancial statements contained in ihjs week's paper of our two banks. To be able to show de posits aggregating nearly half a million dollars at this particu lar season of the year is some thing to be proud of indeed and the officers of our banks as well as' the people to whom this tidy fortune belongs are to be con gratulated upon the excellent showing. Head the statements and see lor yourself what a prosperous town and county we live in. Tbe Monticello News gently roasts the Jacksonville Metrop olis because in a recent cartoon printed in that psiper depicting the accomplishments of the Florida Congressional delega tion the persons of every mem ber ot Congress from Florida is shown except that of Con gressman's Mays of the Th'rd District. The News should not be worried because of the slight thus put upon our Congressman. The editor will learn before he has been many more years in Florida that this section of our State seems to be unmarked or undiscovered on the maps used by the Jacksonville papers. We don't know just why, but it is a fact, that the Jacksonvil'e pa pers' seem to be ignorant of that section of the State lying west of the Suwannee river.

That used to be the cry. and is yet in some quarters, but when you hear a person make such a declaration in these times you may safely put him down as one who does not keep up with the march of progress by reading the papers, magazines aud otter publications which show mater iai advances along prohibition lines in every section.
