The Palatka News
AND ADVERTISER Entered at the Palatka postoftlce aa mailable matter of the secoinl class. Pjulinbed at Palatka, Fin., on Fridays by RUSSELL A VICKERS. W.. A. RUSSELL, Editor FLORIDA'S PRESS GANG The 26th ami mil Hussion of' the Flor ida Press Association was held fit Lake City lust week. The object of the association seems to he the pro motion of Koodfellowslii anions; members. A thiiiK easy of iiccom jilishinent when it Is consideiscl that the membership is made up of good fellows and some ladies who are more so. No mail could mingle with the organized Florida press cang with out becoming impressed with tin high character of the men and wo men who compose it. Not all niv great journalists, but all are grand in that they seem to possess in marked degree that one trait, so essential to high class journalistic endeavor subordinated self interest to tin public welfare. In private conversation these men and women talked of "an honest pri mary law," "Florida's .material in terests," and "the moral welfare of communities. ' Such topics had precedence over "advertising rates," and kindred topics concerning their own personal and financial interests. These matters also had their place, but they were not prominent. The various papers read before the association were of absorbing inter est and the annual address of the retiring president, Prof. Mcl tenth, was an eloquent appeal in behalf of a greater and better Florida. These annual gatherings of Hi. Florida Press Association are valu able in that they bring the moulders of public opinion together and pro mote a good fellowship that can In secured in no other way. Hood fel lowship is the best foundation for united work. T nited on any one question for the upbuilding of Flori da, this press association, working through its various chanels of ex pression, would prove such a power for good in the state as to insure the certain and speedy triumph of right. True, this power could be usil to ignoble purpose, but it never will be with the consent of the Florida Press Association. In this union there is not only strength, but there is a composite S"iise of justice such as is possessed in no higher degree by any other association of public workers. The association should grow and grow until it niimln is among its members every editor in Florida. ADVICE TO THE SICK. Advice, it is said, is cheap. J'.ut it sometimes is dear when accepted in cases of sickness. This does not I e fer to the advice of physicians, which, of course, is ticar, bu! to the advice of well meanim; and sincere ly sympathetic friends, which often is far dearer still. All know how prone people are to ml vise one who is ill and to tr;ll what the3' did anil how they obtained re lief under what they think were ex actly similar circumstances. It stands to reason that these good people understand neither the ills with which they are alllicfed nor the influences that brought about their cures. Hut the sick do not reason. In their pain mid anxiety they are like young robbins that sit with open mouths and swallow whatever is dropped in, whether it be worms or shingle nails. And after along experience wii h the pills and potions of sympathetic friends, death, if it i nut certain, is at least welcome. It seems as though it would be a sweet relief to sleep under the sod. According to Hero lotus, this hu man habit held good many centuries ago. lie quotes the followi.ig as one of the wisest of liaby Ionian institu tions: "They have no physicians, but when a man is ill they lay him in the public square, snd the pass ersby come up to him, snd if they have ever had his disease themselves or have known muone who has suff ered from it, t hey give him advice, recommending him to do whatever they found good in tin ir own case or in the case known to them. A Ml :n one is allowed to puss the sick niiin in silence without asking him what bis ailment is." Excepting for our present thin veneer of eivilizat ion and abundant supply of physicians, human nature seems to have been about the same in all ages. Bnt what is the use of protesting? The habit continues, in spite of I In graveyards it has filled. For we like sympathy when we are sick. " And. maybe, after ail, sympathy is better than nostrums iu most of our little ailments. Anyway, the neighbor who drops her own household cares and comes in with sympathy and devotion seems to have almost divine healing in her loving touch . She may know nothing of patholo gy or therapeutics, but she knows what the sore heart hungers for and supplies it as no other can. She may help us to die in ninny cases, but on the other hand, if we get well, she has taught us there are things worth living for. If we escape going to Join the an gels aliove, we at least have learned that there are angels on earth. i ITS BLUFF CALLED. The Florida Times Union has punctured the circulation wind bag of the Jacksonville Metropolis and "Dufus," the chief engineer of the aforesaid w. h has hit the earth. In performing this service the Times Union has earned the gratitude of every newspaper man in Florida and ninety-nine ill every hundred of the laity who read the .Metropolis. There isn't a mother's son of us that hasn't been nauseated with the itera tion and daily reiteration of the cir culation claims feature of the Me tropolis. None of us doubted its original statement and when "Dufus" swore to it we felt that while heaven tnd earth Ml (ill T l'ASri AWAY those "llggeis" WOUId) STAND. Hut ''Dufus" got hold. He was not confetlled with telling the people' all and more than he knew about his own paper's circulation. He must mails forget to mind his own busi ness ami till the people what he DIDN'T KNOW about the circula tion of other papers. These other papers remained pa tient and kept quiet nihil patience ceased to he a virtue and truth de manded t hey slinutd speak. Now comes the Times-Union with this statement : "To th public: The Florida Times Union will deposit. if,'00 to if j.ixsj with aiiinvcstigati.igcnmuiitr.cn of repu table business men, to he paid to one or more CHAUITA UMS INSTITU TIONS as may be agreed upon, it it cannot show unequivocally I hat this paper lias a CIRCULATION greater than the COMUINKD C1K I'l'LATION of all oilier DAILY NKWSI'AI'F.R-i PI HL1S11KD IN JACKSONVILLE, that is, provided that each or ei her paper referred to places a similar amount of money in the hands of saitl committee, to be disposed of on the lines suggested, ill the event the Tunes-Union does not make good its claim. This proposi tion is extended to lie met by Satur day noon, April 1,'lUOo." Tins proposition is a fair one, but the agility with which "Dufus" is side-stepping it is a sight to behold. Fair as the proposition is, "Dufus" meets it with a counter one that seeks to becloud the issue. The Florid. i Sun, however, meets the statement in a manly way. It says: "We agree with the Times-Union We think it has a greater circula tion than both the afternoon papers They should have. The Sun lias made no claims as to circulation, up to this lime for the reason that until the ii n lust., we were not equipped to increase our circulation, and we were printing as many papers as the press lorinerly used would facilitate. We are now in position to print as many papers as we can circulate. in tile meantime we make a proposition: We will forfeit to any charitable organization that may be agreed upon, SjlUO.tlO U we cannot show a greater circulation among the white population of Jack sonviile than anv other afternoon paper. We will also forfeit $100.00 if we cannot show a greater dally in crease in circulation than any other newspaper published in Jackson ville.1' Thus is ''Dufus," the circulation niiisauceoft.he Metropolis, disposed of. May he proilt by his unexpect ed fall and turn his talents in the di lection of making the Metropolis worthy of keeping what, it has. Religion and Morality in the Public School. Ik M.I.'. Welch I he public school is the expression of a conviction that the life mid con tinuance of the nation depend on the educat ion of the people. The school will correspond to the prevailing view id what the state is, what is its chief function. When the state, in the general belief, is an economic so cio) v to promote material ends, the school will take a certain character and completion from this belief. Th economic theory of the state looks towards visible and material ends It contemplates individual and na tional prosperity as a chiei concern According to this view the state ex ists for increase of physical well be ing, for couilortalile living. It en courages pursuits' which multiply convenience, increase wealth, pro mote luxury, and load the table with bounty. All this lends to make men worship the success tlist comes through nion"y, and to be unrespon sive to tile joys of the spirit. The state must always include the economic feature, for by means of it trade is kept in motion, white-winged commerce ploughs the sea, and homes Bi'e built, the rest ing places of the human family. The people must "eat and drink, buy and sell, plant and build." Rut the state is larger, made for higher ends, than the economic theory can ever lift it to. The state or nation is in the moral order of the world. National au thority in the last analysis rests not in President, Congress or Court, but in the people. The present struggle to acquire for the people tile refer renduiil Hud initiative is an assertion of this fact. This is a moral deter mination. This possession of au thority is not merely a political, it is a moral condition. It is not conferr ed by man. The moral order of the world is :i manifestation of the de vines mind, the exhibition of a di vine purpose. And so the state is not an institution of human hut of divine origin. Washington, iu Ills first inaugural, said. "No people can he bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conduct-s the atoms of men. more than the people of the United States." In this divine origin, and in the develop ment of the state in patriotism, in social and industrial order, and in righteousness, consists the moral or der of the state. The perpetuity of the state rests in its conforming to divine righteousness. Assumption of the people's authority bv Presi dent without the sanction of law is usurpation. So far as this is done the state loses its divine democratic character and becomes imperialistic. The state is hi the great and on ward progress towards "a far-off di vine event" which is not yet reveal ed. We feel the stir and impulse of this event, and our souls anticipate it in their inmost longings. And the schools must correspond. The school must be instinct with this higher view of the character of the state. It must be so, because being a crea ture of the state for the education of youth, it should hn in harmony with what is best in the state. It must prepare the youth for citizenship In the state. Now in the state thus analyzed the spirit of morality must be the atmosphere of the school. Like the grace and spirit or tile Due woman, it is of the essence of the school and it must manifest itself, heciiu.se of the law of expression. Out of the heart the mouth speaKS. Ontof the soul the face shines. Outof the state, which is in the moral or der of the world, the spirit of morali ty must express itself. Anil so also is it with the school. The spirit of morality must be the dominating feature, we say the spirit, ot mor ality purposely. We are not now speaking of a branch ot study, nut oi i personal niagnatisin. rue raniatiou it power from the individuality ot the teacher, something like what the poet hr.il iu mind when he wrote of a bright-eves valuing innnence. This is not matter of instruction. You cannot teach sunshine. You c.unnot instruct a thirsty child in the leticioiisuess oi cool spi'lllgwater. These things are felt. They are tak- II in, imbibed, absorbed. They be onie a part of the life, without t he child's knowing whence the new life comes. We have then these two ideas of (location. One is the qualilA iug of youth to become proniotors of the inateri il welfure of the state. The aim and end of the other is good citi zenship. This last menus much nore than the nrst. It aims to make the youth come to a realization of themselves iis moral beings, and as such to find their work in the indus trial or some other life of the nation. Considering the state as a part of the moral order of the world, it would eem to be nn obligation of the chool to tench this truth. Not sel fish ends is the first aim of the good citizen, but his work In the moral il'der of the state. The course on moral instruct ions In the city of An derson, Intl., begins. "The moral instruction of children is the highest luty imposed on teachers." "Teachers should give positive instruction in manners and morals." This sentiment seems bound to in i'1'eiiso. The suite Is a moral personality. It is all the while working out moral ends which n fleet the welfare and destiny of the nation. The sfnte tlioiefore must be true to itself iu the administration of the school. It should provide that the result of school life in character shall be help ful to the w ork ot the state. We do not overlook the fact that what is lacking iu present school conditions is iu ninny cases made up by the individuality of the teacher. This work on character by the good teacher is t he saving element in our system of public instruction. It works silently like the work of the spirit of (jod. Rut the state (Florida) renders no aid. Solar as the state is con cerned the school does not give the repression that this realization of the pupil's duty to sustain the moral order of the state is needful to good citizenship. Later when grown up mid entered on life, they see the state prosecuting officials for breach of trust, they see the penal work of courts. Hut these things are not part of the moral education of the state. The state punishes the w ant of that moral character in the citizen which it made no effort to create in the citizen's school life. The state must be true to its char acter. The state is a moral organi zation. This is not the place to argue out this point. I assume .it. And not as an opinion of my own. It is the teaching and philosophy of the best authorities. Philosophical stu dents of history tell us that the life of nations reveals a purpose governing it all. and contributing to the pro gress and perfection of humanity. Each important nation has had its part to perforin. Israel developed religion. That was her mission. "There was iu Greece a conscious moral spirit." She created Nemesis, the goddess of divine retribution. The lessons of her tragic poetry are intensely moral. Rome developed law. These contributions to the moral order of the world show the proper work of the state. History conveys to us moral lessons, because the nations have been working out moral ends. How to secure for the school the teacher with the needed individuali ty is a serious problem. It would seem that the method ot selection should make this individalif.y of chief consideration. Then, shall in struction from text books be added to moral influence? Can the Btate leave the most important part of education entirely to undirected in dividuality? There is hope that the moral earnestness of the nation,' es pecially of the teachers, will develop some kind of instruction which shall furnish a basis of righteous prin ciple for the conduct of life. Many object to the introduction of religion Into the public school. A part of the objection arises from con founding systems of doctrine and denomiuatiiuialism witli religion. This is an error. Religion is a mat ter of personal relation to God. Doc trine and deuoininatioiialism are human deductions and in some de gree human speculations. Religion pure and simple has no concern with them. Religion and morality are in separable. They both are. in the nature of the child. You cannot sep arate them there. Morality needs the support of religion. Religion needs tile support of morality. Re ligion cannot do its work without morality, cannot keep house with out morality. If she tries to do so the house is not kept clean. If mor ality tries to do so without religion, the house is liable to be proved to be built on the sand. Like husband and wife, religion and morality are two divided halves, eacli incomplete without the other. The pupil, edu cated in the public school in his in tellect alone, has his religious and moral nature left, by the state, to neglect and decay. He fails to be made the complete citizen. He can not perform his full part in promot ing the moral order of the state. Somehow religion and morality must eacli come to its own in the public schools. The best life of the nation depends on its being done. In a meeting of the New England asssociation of colleges and high schools. Prof. MacDouald of Brown university said, "I am inclined to believe the next great educational reform will be in moral education.' It is a gross delusion to think we can fit men and women for the complex life of this day and leave out of con sideration the lnorsl element." "It is pointed out," says Dr. Her vey, examiner board of education. New York city, "that crime is on the increase. It is pointed out that the moral strength of the present gene ration is unequal to the moral over strain of our modern life. It must be admitted that the public schools are in some measure responsible for the preseut gravely unsatisfactory and disturbing condition." And I'rofessor fatten oi me in. . university, Illinois, says, "To grant that the spiritual life is the most im-t.rtfiui,-. ... insist- as tL nriiicinte of pedagogy that it, is in the adolescent period that the prolouiuiesr religious it.t,.r.1sl..iiu !ir.. oinde nod tile char acter most radically atl'ecied, and yet to prohibit absolutely the person who lias i.ne nioir, mi no won me l,.,i,.l,,,r ,,f III,, vtiiiinnr fmlll tOUCllillg on the religious iife, is a fatal blun der." KOMK Col.D FACTS. The subject of cold is an unpleas ant one to the people ot riorum. Experience with cold itsell, however, is more unpleasant yet. If the lat ter may be prevented by any consid eration of the for r he who pre sents the subject may reasonably ex pect forgiveness. This hope strength ens me in the determination of again expressing myself relative to this disagreeable but most important subject. Two months have past since the severe cold of January Sl'h. U is I'O longer necessary to surmise as to the actual extent of I he damage wrought in the citrus groves of the state. The real ell'octs of the cold are now apparent. The lessons and deduc tions are now presented with ilicon testihle clearness. I have just re turned from a trip of a week through the chief orange counties, made for the purpose oi observing the present positive i-ll'ects of the cold. Many tacts are most forcibly illustrated by the present condition of the groves. Some of these facts ere capable of such application as to iiutleruilly di minish the probabilities of any repe tition of similar damage in the fu ture. This is ample justification for careful consideration. It must lie borne in mind that the citrus industry as a whole i scaped serious damage, notwithstanding the fact that the temperature fell to 10 degrees in most of the groves of tile old orange belt. The reason for this general escape Iroui what would, under other conditions, have meant frozen trees, wis the steady and continued preceeding cool went her. The result was dormancy of the trees. TliN dormancy lias again proved its ellicieticy as n protection against nny normal degree of cold. Any means, therefore, which tends toward retaining the trees in a dor mant condition is ample insurance against ruined groves. artety has more influence in controlling this condition than all oilier factors com bined If any doubt remained us to the value of the Sutsiinia in this par ticiilar, it must now vanish. All over the state nfe groves or speci mens of this tree absolutely unharm ed, today covered with bloom, sur rounded by trees of all other stand ard varieties in nil ' stages of sutter ing from chill, from the mere nipped tips to the dead trunks. This im munity is particularly marked when the trifoliata stock was used. The obvious lesson, aside from the value of the Sntsiiimi, is the desirability of using the t' ifoliiita stock for nil va rieties to which it. shows adaptation. One of the essentials to the protec ting dormancy is thorough ripeness of t lie wood. Unquestionably the early fall working of the groves is conducive to continued growth, and prevents the possibility of full im i.iunity. Fertilizing and working the grove later tliuii the middle of September is at the serious risk of susceptibility to cold. The reason is obvious to whoever desires the rea sons for tilings. Continued working tends toward continued growth; par tial dormancy in place of entire dor mancy and green wood iu place of ripe wood are the inevitable results, leading to tenderness of the tree in the event of unusual cold. The fact that trees suffered so comparatively little, while nil over the state thousands of boxes of un picked fruit were frozen and los', lends to two natural suggestions. Earlier maturing varieties should form a larger pint of future plantings The reply may cite the low prices du -ing the past autumn, which resul ed iu an unusually large part oft he crop remaining on the frees so long, to that the suggestion made might be followed by worse rather than belter conditions. This possibility lends to the second suggestion in mind. The tiino has conic when the Florida orange and grape-fruit grower should be able to bold his fruit without leaving it exposed oil the trees. He should be prepared to use cold stor age. Most id our larger towns are already provided with cold storage, for homo cured meat. The facilities should, and might easily, be extend ed to u part of the citrus crop. The more practical plan, however, would be for grove and community cold storage, for private and local conve nience as a regular part of the prepa ration for the business, as much as the packing house is a part of the regular equipment for the business. The prohibitive expense, once bo in surmountable, no longer exists. Complete refrigerating machines ample for the protection of many thousands of boxes of frui', nitiy now be installi d at a total cose less than that of most of the irrigation plants now becoming so prominaiit a fea ture iu the production of oranges. Even two to three hundred dollars now provides a refrigerating machine ample for indefinitely preserving fruit worth many time this money, and nearly as lasting as the grove itseR. The location of the grove demands further consideration iu the light of recent experience. Again latitude has shown little influence on the susceptibility of trees. A distance of 100 miles north or south is shown to possess little practical influence so far as effect of cold is concerned. There are groves iir Putnam county which have suffered less that groves similarly treated, located iu Orange county. J in mediate surroundings, within certain limits, are far more important iu determining the degree of immuniiy from cold than the mere distance of the tree from an itumafiunry frost line. Aspect and the preVence of water exert very ma terial protecting influence. The south sup of the protect ing water is the iiu-ffiime side. Large bodies of wikWf render their immediate neigh borhoods relatively immune, and produce similar conditions, to a ma terial degree independent of lat itude. Crescent City and Crown Point' offer ample demonstration of this fact. Eacli has groves on the south side of a considerable body of water. These lakes were of practically the same temperature during the time of the cold wave, though a hundred miles spirt. The groves bordering tlum are today loaded with bloom, though others near by show noticeable damage to young growth. Aspect has too olteu been entirely I the Tarin and Grove. ) Copyrighted by K:i) l 'iyss Syn.linite. I C It. E. STOCKBltlllliB, I'll.
