RUSSELL, tdlti I The total acreage in Irish potatoes in the Hastings potato section is given at 6,000. That's some. Speaker Cannon isn't so free with his "don't care a damns" these days. 11 probably cares several. ' The always interesting editorial cul limn of the Bradford County TeL grapi was missing last week, evidence that Editor Matthews is out shelling the woods as a candidate (or the legislature. A bumptious congressman insists that the discovery of the north pole has been of no value to the United Stat Neither would the discovery of Para dise. But just let somebody discover Hades. Hon. James E. Calkins, representative from Nassau Co. in the legislature for the past two sessions, has purchased the Fernandina News and become its editor. Mr. Calkins is also a lawyer. His latest Tenture puts him in the way of acquir iag a fortune. The Ocala Star makes the startling an nouncement that Hon. Ion L. Fanis o Jacksonville "will not enter the race for Congress against Frank Clark." Men who are searching the records tor an example of self-abnegation in Florid: politics need go no further. The moral forces at Hastings are ur in arms over the threatened estahi sh- meat of a saloon in that town, a question lo be submitted to a vote of the people. Heretofore the people of that place have been quite contented in pulling their urplui money in the banks. Hon. Syd L. Carter has announced that lie will aaiu be a candidate for the lower branch of the legislature from Alachua county. Alachua county is fortunate in that it again has the oppor tunity of securing the services of this able and clear-sighted legislator. When the people of F.ngland voted down the corn laws they weren't ver well up on the difference between frei ttado and pujicclion, but tlu-y were ex peris in the price of food. The price of food lias come lo oe .he iiig issue in the United states, which the people ai preparing to treat regardless of protec tion or free trade.' Senator Taliaferro, who, for obvio-j-reasons, is just now tea; iag lii shirt in an effoit to get appropriations for his beloved Florida, succeeded in getting an amendment to the Senate appropria tion bill providing a $il),U00 appropria tion "to establish schools, buy lands and farm implements for the Seminole In diaas," who haven't a panicle of use for these things. The House cut this appropriation to $15,000 (or the "care and maintenance" of these Indians. That's more like it. Now the p.iie face will get his proper proportion of the "dough." The News is publishing this week a most interesting sketch by James R. Hill of Heudersonville, X. C, entitled "A Legend of Lake Crescent." The legend will have an added interest to citizens of Florida residing in this sec tion of the state and who are familial with this beautiful sheet of water and the country 'round. Mr. Iliil was for merly a resident of Crescent City and who became so enamored of that sec tion that he now spends his vacation months there with Mrs. Hill, w hose in terest in this beautiful section of Florida is not less than his own. The sketcli was written for and published in a lead Ing Pennsylvania paper and is repro duced in the News by permission of its author. Mr. Hill is a most entertaining writer, a gift he seems to have more by inheritance than cultivation. His brother was formerly a well known Pennsylva nia editor whose literary work counted for much. The News trusts that the author of this sketch may feel inclined to make other interesting contributions, more particularly if they shall delve into the most interesting but little written ol past of this peaceful, prosperous and de lightful section of our fair Florida the land of flowers and the long reputed source of the fountain of perpetual youth. PONCE de LEON'S COMING. Preparations for the Ponce de Leon celebration at St. Augustine this year are progressing upon the usual elaborate scale. The historical pageants at the fort reservation on the mornings oi March 30 aud 31, and April 1, consist ing of the brilliant tableaux representing the landing of Ponce de Leon, tli" ar rival and founding of the city by Me mender, and the change of lings, will be wonderful spectacular events. These will be followed by gorgeous stree parades. The afternoons will be devoted lo sports, such as speed boa; regattas on tin- bay, and base ball and field sports on the Y. M. C. A. grounds. Each ni.: i there will be band concerts in the Im!! iantly illuminated plaa, and thrilling speciaclcs on the fort reservation, inclu ding an Indian attack upon a siage coach, escape of Osceola nd attack u, on the fort, an elaborate pyrotechnic dis play, with other Stirling and inlerestln.; features. The elaborate historical bail, attend ed by Ponce de Leon and his glittering retinue, will take place in the Casino on the night of March 30th.

It Is perhaps worth recalling that the art of baking loaves of bread was Introduced into Europe quite lata in history. Flat cakes were baked even In the earliest times, but as late as the beginning of the nineteenth century loaf bread was comparatively un known in many parts of the continent In 1812. for Instance, when an Eng lish captain ordered loaves to the val ue of $5 In Gothenburg the baker stip ulated for payment In advance on th ground that be would never be able to sell them in the city If they were left on his hands.

Attorney General Park Traramell has prepared a Ijriet synopsis on certain parts of the present laws governing pri mary elections and winch will clear away any contusion in the minds ol voters and candidates, and which the News lakes pleasure in publishing (or heir benefit. Mr. Trammell's synopsis s as follows: Voters Qualification. Those who are registered and who pay their poll tax due lor l'luS and 1909, in or belore April 9th, 1910, will be itialified lo vole at the approaching pri mary, as well as those who were not subject to poll tax on account of age or non-residence. Poll Tax. Poll lax has to be paid by the person who owes it, except it may be paid bv another i( a real or personal property a is also paid for liie person against whom the poll tax is assessed. I he person owing the pull tax can pay n without paying Ins leal or person- 1 properly tax. 1 he 1 ax Collector is he judge as to who is paving the poll ix. If he is satisfied .that it is being aid according to law and by the person i ho owes it, and is w illing lo accepl a ayment thai is transmitted through the mail, it may be so transmitted by the person owing the poll tax. This, how ever, will depend upon the ruling of the lax Collector lor his own protec tion. The law imposes a penalty against any person w ho pays the poll lax for or furnishes ihe money for the payment of ihe poll tax of another, except as above provided. Bribery. Any person who shall give, lend, so licit, request, demand or receive direct ly or indirectly any money or anything else of value, or the promise thereof, either to influence a vole or under pre-L-ise of being used to procure votes, or to be used at any poll prior to or on the day of the primary, for or against any candidate, shall be guilty of bribery and subject to not more than ten years or less than one year's imprisonment. Candidate's Statement. All county candidates shall file with the Clerk of the Circuit Court, and all State candidates with the Secretary of State, at least ton days before ihe pri mary, a complete itemized statement of his campaign expanses and all contribu tions made to his campaign fund. A similar statement shall also be made and iled within ten days after the primary. 1 hesc must be sworn to. Campaign Contributions. Contribuiions by any eoiporalion di reclly or indiiec lly to the campaign fund if any candidate, or in support of or :n fu- h . 'ranee :f his candidacy, is pro-j liiiiiled under a penalty of a forfeiture of i barter and a fine of n il less than $1,UI(I, a.r more ll.an $1U,HU0, or impri onment ' not less than two years or more than five years. Re5i?tr.-tion. The regislralion books shall be open in each election district (or four wi cks in all counties, and shall be closed in eountics w ilh thirty thousand population r more four wccks before the primary, n other counties shall bo closed two .veeks before the primary.

What most An aching back is instantly relieved by an application of Sloan's Liniment This liniment takes the place of massage and is better than sticky plasters. It penetrates without rubbing through the skin and muscular tissue right to the bone, quickens the blood, relieves congestion, and gives permanent as well as temporary relief. Here's the Proof. Mr. James C. Leu, o( 1100 9th St., S.K. , Washington, D.C., writes: "Thirty years ago I fell from a scaffold anil seri ously injuredmy back. I suffered terrt blT at times ; from tus small of my back all around my stomach was Just as if I had been beaten with a club. 1 used erery plaster X could get with no relief. Sloan's Liniment took the pain right out, and I can now do as much ladder work as any man In th shop, thanks to Sloan's Liniment Mr. J. P. Evam, of Mt. Airy, Oa., says: "After being afflicted for threa years with rheumatism, I used Sloan's Liniment, and was ourad sonnd and well, and am glad to say I haven't been troubled with rheumatism since. My leg was badly swollen from my hip to my knea. ' One-half a bottls took the pain ana swelling out." Sloan's Liniment has no equal as a remedy for Rheu matism, Neuralgia or any pain or stiffness in the muscles or joints.
