BETTER LIVE STOCK FOR FLORIDA Renewed Fighting (By Associated Press.) Belfast, April 19. Renewed fight ing between the Unionists aud Sinn Feiners occurred at Londonderry on Sunday. The' police clubbed them both impartially. Some of the girls and women who have taken up farm work In Aus tralia have accomplished marvelous results' but perhaps the most remark able record Is held by a ten-year-old girl living in the south of the Pinna ioo district, who in one season culti vated three Hundred acres and drilled two hundred. Louise Smith, a nine-year-old miss of Northeast Cherry, Maine, Is the champion' girl huntress of the Pine Tree State. All unaided, she trap ped a big wildcat in the woods, club ted him into insensibility and then carried him home on her back. Well kept parks add to th eattrac tiveness of a town. Florida is a re sort State and with its wonderful va riety of trees, shrubs, vines and flow ers, parks can be made as In no other State. Parks help to attract visitors.

The establishing of breeding farms has had much to do with this condi tion, as foundation stock Is required to improve the herds and this can on ly be furnished through our own breeding farms, or at least it can be furnished to much better advantage and profit to the grower, as the cat tle and hogs raised in Florida, thor oughly acclimated and accustomed to the environment and climatic condi tions, will do better than the Imported animals, that have to pass through the period of acclimation before they can become useful. With such breeders as Herlong, the 'Hog King;" Logan, the Aberdeen- Angus enthusiast, and a score of oth er good breeders, the live stock in dustry is being given an impetus that will send it forward rapidly in Florida and in a few years this state should be leading in the best breeds of cat tle and hogs and even sheep. Mr. Logan boldly announces that his Kings Roads Stock Farm has the larg est and best herd of registered tick immune Angus cattle In America, which places Florida in an enviable position with regard to this famous breed of beef cattle. With a man of such wide experience as Mr. Logan, who has been a breeder for years, a banker, coal merchant and extensive Rhinner. the ' breeding business is bound to be well handled and the peo pie of Florida are indeed fortunate in having a man of such prominence in a position to assist them in develop ing the. live stock industry. The tick eradication movement is playing an important part in the ad vancement of better live stock and the. encouragement it is receiving in many parts of the state indicates. an anxietr on the oar tof the best farm ers and breeders to rid the state pf Ibis pest, which is? blot on,itses,- ruieuo ina menace w mo rjaaiuu of our' dairy andlieef caitltodnstiry.

Hjalmar Branting, tho Swedish Socialist lead er, and former minister of finance, speaking at the recent Scandinavian Workers' Congress, declared that ho had no sympathy with what he called the ''insane and destructive Entente policy towards Russia.'' but added that "our joining Bolshevism will not help the suffering Russians.'' The Congress later rejected !the Norwegian Socialist proposal to Join the Third Internationale of Moscow. "Anarchical methods will not cre ate lasting results," said Branting. ' We do not accept the dictatorship of any minority. The minority dictator ship in Russia has shown its impot ence in 'solving all really socialistic problems. The giving up of democrat ic principles means floundering In the rough sea of life without a compass." direction of tick eradication, having already released three counties from quarantine and now have five coun ties carrying on systematic dipping under government and state direction and more than thirty other counties dipping voluntarily. When Florida can be freed from quarantine it will be sought by hundreds of the best breeders and cattle raisers In the country, which means many millions of dollars of investments In Florida ranches. The fencing up of millions of acres into extensive ranchos in the paHt few years and the Improvement of pas ture and forage cropn has been an other factor in favor of the advance ment of the live stock Industry and now there is a decidedly vigorous movement on foot to provid ea fence law that will Improve the conditions vastly in the state. The range cattle men have opposed this measure in the past but they are rapidly coming to a realization of hte need of such a law, as is shown by a meeting held yesterday in Bartow of the executive committee of the Cattle Raisers' As- sociation of Florida, for the purpose of considering the no-fence law move ment and seeing whether the cattle men and th etarmers and fruit grow ers can get together on a law that will be acceptable to all. At the an nual meeting of the association last. month It was decided that the time was not ripe for such a law, but so. many facts have been brought out by th enewspapers in the past month that even the cattle men who were the most strenuously opposed to such a law are now coming to believe that It will be best to conciliate' tfte people who are demanding it and are willing to meet them half way.
