The Palatka board of trade is organ
jied to increase the manufacturing inter
ests of Palatka and to develop the agri
cultural areas of Putnam county. In the
latter work it should, and probably will,
lend Its aid to securing drainage foe the
rich muck lands of the Florahome sec
tion. It it a worthy cause.
Friend of Bob Davis are now talking
of raising a campaign fund for him and
insisting on hi going into the senatorial
race. Mr. Davis has many friends in
Volusia county, who would eswia it a
favor to add their mite to thia fund.
And if Our Bob goea into the race, hell

Apropos to President Tafts defense
of the dignity of hi office : One day
word was brought to Lincoln that Sec
retary Stanton was calling him "a d d
foot,' "Well, welt" said Lii-coln,
"we'll have to see about that" And
that was the end of it. The presidential
dignity didn't suffer a bit, and Stanton
ever was in doubt for a minute a to
who was president
Claude L'Engle was so poor during
the last session of the legislature that
friends had to pay the expense of run
ning his newspaper. Now he's making
a tour of the state in his automobile, at
heavy expense, urging his claims to a
seat In the United Stales senate. And
yet there are people who say that the
primary makes It impossible for a poor
tnaa to run for office.
Gifford Pinchot is a man of fortune
and one of the best forestry experts in
the world. His service to the govern
ment has been more a labor of love than
a profitable occupation. Like the old-
time fiddler, his pay has consisted more
of kicks than half-pence. He was op
posed by the land grabbers, the power
and water privilege exploiters, the tim
ber kings and the sheep men, all of
whom are well aware of the land and
privilege values of which the public is
ignorant They all regard Mr. Pinchot
with onspeakahle hatred because he
stood between them and their coveted
exploitation ol the public domain. The
mining sharks want to obtain ownership
of billions of dollars worth ol coal and
other mineral, the timber kings want
the privilege ol tlrifficg the public
faukU of its lumber, the sheep own want
the privilege of herdicg their flocks free
of charge on the public domain. Pinchot
alone stood in their way.
The annual Mardi Gras celebration at
PensacoU February 7th and 8th should
fill that enterprising city to the limit
with visitors. The management has left
o stone unturned to secure a list of at
tractions that will make the celebration
memorable. Put carnivals in Pensacola
have been lavish in rich display, but the
one this year, Judging from what the
newspapers of that city say, will out
atrip all former attempts.
Tha recent purchase by a discerning
western capitalist of fully 25,000 acre
of uncultivated Putnam county land,
which he proposes to divide into small
fanna for colonization purposes, is but
another evidence that the once despised
Florida soil is at last being recognized
at its true worth. Putnam county farmers
who are going about their business in
telligently are taking as much, if not
more, actual money from the soil than
the same number o! farmers of any other
county in the United States.
The Florida Stale Press Association
Is to meet in Lake City on Monday and
Tuesday, April 11th and 12th. For one,
th editor of the News has made np his
mind to attend that meeting, and he
hopes to meet all the editors of Florida
there. The newspapers constitute a
mighty, but modest, power in the devel
opment of the state, a power that might
be doubled and trebled by organized,
concerted work. Let us get together
and talk it over. Let us make this Press
Association m tat it by right should be
the real leader in the forward march for
a greater Florida.
The Honorable 'Jeems" Alexander
delivered the welcome address to the
State Federation of Labor in DcLand
tot week, and right well did he do the
act "Jeems" is only a toiler by proxy,
but he"s been close enough to the real
thing to recognize its dignity and point
the nr to its full recognition. "Get
Into oolitic." says "Jeems" "elect men

and gain to yourselves what the Creator
of All Things intended .you to. have.

In the matter of good roads the coun
ties are vieing each with the other to
see which can do the best work. -In
proportion to their taxable values, per
haps Putnam county should stand first
among the counties in good roads, for
$109,000 will be spent by this county
during the year. The bond trustees last
week spent several days en tour, viewing
new and old improved roads in several
sections, paying particular attention to
the 354 or more miles in Orange county.
In addition to these roads, Putnam
county has just completed a 45,0O0
bridge across the St Johns and is erect
ing a $10,000 bridge across Dunn's creek.
Besides, work is progressing rapidly on
a $35,000 court house for this county at
Palatka. Tampa Tribune.
Every business and professional man
in ralaua saouia anite witn ine ooara
of trade and help in an effort to boost
the city and county into their proper
place. Never mind past or present po
litical differences. Politics will have
no place in the board; it platform or
creed consists of business problems
alone and the united judgment of all is
needed to overcome them. Some old-
time English poet once wrote this
"The world is a bundle of hay,
Mankind are the asses who pull
Each tugging a different way,
And the greatest of all is John BulL"
That was before Palatka had a recogniz
place on the map. Here we have all
tugged our best, but in different ways,
for Palatka. Let u now get together
and make a long pull, a strong pull, and
a pull all together for Palatka and Put
nam county. The Palatka board of
trade offers the opportunity for this
There are signs of movement in the
great impending contest for statewide
wide prohibition in Florida. It will
doubtless be the hardest fight ever made
in this state, for the issue is of a charac
ter to profoundly stir the convictions of
people of all classes, and from its very
nature there can be no straddling. You
must be either for or against the liquor
traffic there can be no middle ground
and every organization in Florida,
secular, religious or educational, has a
moral right, as well defined as that of
the individual himself, to take active
part in the controversy. There is no
reason or logic on earth that can be in
voked to the contrary. The law pres
cribe who can vote on the issue, but it
does not prescribe who can talk and
resolute and use their moral influence
as they please, either to carry or defeat
the amendment, and this might as well
be conceded at the outset of the cam
paign. Live Oak Democrat.

Christian Endeavor In Florida.
Does Religion Pay?" is the Endeavor
topic for next Sunday. Among the
many attributes given by Christian En
deavor World showing the reasons that
religion is s paying investment, la "Re
ligion and Beauty" from which we give
the following thoughts: Beauty i one
of the world's greatest powers and pleas
ures, and it is right to seek it; but there
is no better and surer way than by re
ligion. This is because God who made
ali beauty, is the end and aim of all re
ligion. "Ana tbe question is ssicea.
no has not seen a plain lace made
lovely by religion?"
We like to hear of anion revival ser
vices because it reminds us of that some
times forgotten Bible verse containing
the words, "And ye all are brethren."
Eustis Presbyterian and Christian church
people united in revival services this
winter and from the Polk County Rec
ord it is noted that similar meetings are
being held by these same church de
nominations in Bartow. Gradually it is
true, but surely the spirit of brotherhood
is growing, and Christian Endeavor
the organization of fellowship in Chris
tian service, should be of real aid in fos
tering by a good example these truths so
beautituuy depicted to tne new testa
ment We can confidently expect having the
splendid Inter-Stale secretary, Karl Leh-
mann, formerly of Colorado but now
from Boston, to help in the convention
at DcLand. Our loyal entertainers have
gone right to work at their end of the
line, and held a anion meeting last Sun
day for first planning for DeLand and
the Convention ot Ifis. nis meeting
was led by Rudolph Rose bo rough, the
local Presbyterian society leader, also
the young man who will gladly send re
ceipts when our societies offer him sil
ver q Baxters for State onion expenses.
The exact date is not yet set, but the
probability is that, to suit Mr. Lehmana's
schedule north ol as, we will hold
April 7-10. There is an old saying,
ever new, it is "Pray, plan, push." We
must do this if we have our best-ever
convention, which is the only kind that
we should have.
Rev. Clarence R. Williams, of New
England, will lecture on the Bible at the
De Funiak Springs Chautauqua in March
and in Tampa during February. He is
a well-known lecturer, and good Eu
deavorer, also. When in Florida he
will speak in our churches if dates can
be made in advance. Address him Box

Dr. Lewis, tbe faithful Congregational
worker of Mt Dora, is dead, the papers
say. We would rather think of him as
having come into life and that one ot
freeness from the pain so long and pa
tiently borne here. Many of us have
worked in Christian Endeavor with his
daughter, Margaret, and will share as far
as we can, the loneliness now come to
the Lewis home.

in the Christian church in Lakeland, re

Ethel Dunklee was appointed superin
tendent in Lakeland.
Rev. H. Keigwin, the Endeavor pastor
of Glenwood was given a genuine sur
prise party by his church people, on his
birthday January 5th. How nice it
would be if all the good pastor were
thus remembered, and we are sure not
all tbe pleasure derived would be on the
minister s side.
Miss Elizabeth Woodruff, well-known
over Florida in Endeavor and Christian
church activities, is in charge of the Al
cohol exhibit which the Suite W. C T.
