Will build a
new court house.
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

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.

ARE BLUE-BLACK

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
