Be it resolved by t-he Board of County Commissioners of Putnam county Lhat Putnam county do build a Court House not Co exceed in cost, $50,000 and Chat. Chair man Canova, Commissioner Wil liams and County Clerk Price be and are hereby appointed a special committee to devise details, etc., and report, to this board at the next meeting. The above resolution introduced, by Commissioner W. It. Allen of Kruitland, was read and unani mously adopted at the meeting of the board of county commissioners last Tuesday. There was a demand for action. This demand has conn; in the decay ing condition of the building which now and for many decades has serv ed as Putnam county's court house. The building is fast' going to wreck. Something must be done. The coun ty commissioners propose to do that something. The committee appointed to de wise details will make its recom mendation as to methods of payment for the new building; whether a bonding proposition shall be sub mitted or whether it is feasible to build without bonding. Anyway it's a start, and the citi zens of Putnam county will general ly rejoice at the start. The court house is a disgrace to the county As Judge Hob't W. Davis told the commissioners, "Putnam county ranks ninth among the coun ties of the state in wealth, llrst iu Intelligence, and 4fth, in its court houses; and that the only ronton it didn't take lower rank in this partic ular was the fact that there were no more counties iu the state." Mr. Davis made a heart to heart, common-sense talk to the commissioners. He showed them that dilapidation and decay were not condusive to the i county's self-respect and that the people owed it to themselves and their children to get out of the slough and do something. liillsboro county sent an invita tion asking Putnam eminty to parti cipate iu the Mid-Winter Fair at Tampa ; petition for a ro'id to Cedar Landing from Orange Springs and Pahitk'a road was denied; notary public bonds of Miss Kinma Coxe and John P. Wall wore approved; slate pension claim of Nancy Fowler was approved; clerk was asked to notify comptroller that Mrs. C. A.

W. North (i0 part payment for building bridges, and Chairman Canova was given power to regulate fares cm ferry boat. The schedule for the last trip of t he Fast Palatka. ferry will be changed Monday for the summer. Last boat will leave East Palatka at 5:30 p. m. DAVE HADDOCK. A Sketch qf That Popular En gineer By The High Springs Hornet. Dave Haddock, one of the most widely known engineers on the A. C L., stops over iu High Springs quite frequently these times, and iu many instances his magnetism is so great that ne draws large crowds to listen to bis rustic expressions of railroad ing. Mr. Haddock is what we'd term a learned skeptic that is full of high social life, and the way he gets oif those railroad gngs makes him the center llgure under all circiimstan ces. For instance: The Coast Line has recently inaugurated a refrige rator box car line, known to the com mon public iih the cabbage-cutter, which is purely a vegetable train. Mr. Haddock being recognized by the ofllcials as one of the most fear less engineers on the system, be was put in charge of this hobo vestibule to labor in bis assigned capacity. He left this city with a 10-inch cylindar and 1(S cars balancing a car to the inch but these being empty, Mr. Haddock thought he'd have about seven loads on bis return up the Florida Southern. When Croom, his destination, was reached, he met his returning sched ule, the marginal reading of which said leave Croohi at 8 o'clock, due in High Springs at 11, leave Croom with 19 loads, run average a mile a minute and take up ouo crates anil baskets every 5 mill's, and take the hole for other trains to high ball. This schedule did not give Mr. Haddock the sleeping reserve he de sired, he reached Leesburg the hour he was due here, and came In next evening "(lagging extra." Mr. Haddock says the Coast Line has plenty of money and he has none, but he don't want the cabbage cut ter at no price. "Why, Ho," he exclaimed, "I'd rather li'ave the T. 15. run than that cutter." "What is the T. B. run ?" asked an inquirer. "The T. U. is the 'Tumble Hug' roller known to yon private citizens as the 'Moon Light' running from here to Rochelle. The darn thing is too insignill'cant to be numbered; it is just named, and that anything and by anybody." High Springs Hornet. Cured His Mother of Kheumatism. 'My mother has been a sufferer for many years with rheumatism," says W. H. Howard, of Husband, Pa. "At times dho was unable to move at all, while at all times walking was painful. I pre sented her with a bot tle of Chamber lain's Pain Bairn ind after a few appli cations J3he decided It was the most wonderful pain reliever she had ever tried, in fact, she is never without it now and Is at all tin es able to wa k. An occasional application of Pain Balm keeps away the pain that she was for merly troubled with." For sale by Ack erman & Stewart. HASTINGS PEOPLE ARE BLUE-BLACK ,1. L. Rankin of this city has been elected state president of the Patri otic Order Sons of America. Over Great Slump In the Po tato Market. For the llrst time iu the history of the potato growing industry at Has tings the farmers are eon fronted with a market that will leave the most economical grower of the tu bers little, if any, profit. The glowers' association received several wires from New-York on Wednesday which stated that the selling price of potatoes in New York had dropped to $)! 50 i he barrel. The growers are blue. They have reason to be. Not one-third of the crop has been shipped. This year's crop at Hastings is' conservatively estimated at KO.OOO barrels. A market of $'l.Gu per barrel in New York means that growers would get butts 25. This is $1.50 less than the average' price received bv grow ers last year or for several years prev ious. The average yield of potatoes per acre at Hastings is 3(1 bbls. At, $2.25 per barrel this would mean $81 per acre received. The average cost of raising an acre of potatos at Hast ings is $80. Small profit that. No wonder the fanners are blue. Hard to stay or force up a falling market. Hastings is a busy place now. Lines of wagons are hauling potatoes to the cars which reach for nearly a mile along the town's front. In the fields as far as tile eye can reach are to be seen men and boys digging potatoes, while empty bar rels and Oiled barrels are strewn equi-distant over the level llelds. But the farmers are not singing at their work. Too bad. One thing about. Irish potato fields after the crop is gone. They are iu excellent condition and well fertiliz ed for other crops such as com and sweet potatoes. Freeman ti. Hodges, who is a farm er with a head full of brains, and who has 50 or more acres t iu potatoes, says: "The thing tor us to do is to raise hogs. Hogs always lind a good market. We can fatten theiti on corn and sweet potatoes raised as after crops on our Irish potato lands. 1 lie J rish potatoes will pay the cost of fertilizing and getting the soil iu Inipe, and the hogs will .be all profit." freeman b. Hodges knows what he's talking about and the sooner the potato farmers take his advice the better for thejr pocket books. WHoortxo Cough. Iu the spring of 1901 my children had whooping cough," says Mrs. D. W. CaPPB, of Capes, Ala. "I used Cham berlain's Cough ltemedv with the most satisfactory results. I think this is the best remedy I have ever se 'U for whoop ing cough." This remedy keeps the eongh loose, lessens the severity and frequency of Hie coughing spells and counteracts i iiy tendency toward pneu monia, for sale by Ackermau s Stewart. alt Ladies: We have a few very fine all wool Skirts worth from $6.oo to $0.00 each.
