The rapid approach of winter means increased hardships for many of the missionaries who have left their com .. fortable homes and gone to labor in . foreign lands. Especially interesting in this connection is a recent letter from Rev. T. F. McCrea, working in China under the Southern Baptist I Convention. Speaking of the discom- Torts of travel in North China in win '. i ter he gives these interesting expe : I lences : "We left Hwanghien Monday morn ing and spent the night in a smail 1 inn where we had to sleep in a room . ' with a dozen or more muleteers. The , Chinese beds are brick platforms with plastered top, and are called k'angs. They have flues underneath for mak . ing a hie to warm them. More smoke ' seems to come out into the room than . goes out into the chimney. When the pine brush was lighted in half a i ueiozen of these flues it was a choking, X smothering experience.

The sheds . , were filled and packed tight with feed- Ing animals, and often there was a great stamping and squealing when two or three mules would get to fight- ing, and a noisy yelling of muleteers to separate them. "Our San tze could not enter the crowded yard and had to be lowered Vtin the street. We went inside to see if we could find a place to sleep, but the rooms were all filled with a smok ing chattering crowd. So we had lo rleep in the Shan tze out in the stieet, with the thermometer nearly down to zero. ,. . . . i "When I saw the conditions at this " inn I thought at once of the night of our Lord's birth.

The matter of a number of the State Banks of Florida failing to, and in many cases, positively refusing to pay their license taxes, will be taken up by the executive office and thoroughly prosecuted by Governor Park Tram mel!. He has already had an informal consultation with Attorney General West on this matter, and the pro cedure will probably begin by instruc tions being issued to the tax collec tors of the various counties in which are located the banking institutions that have declined to pay. The tax collectors and State attorneys in thos-.c counties will be asked to investigate the matter, levy on the banks if ne cessary for their license taxes and even take the matter before the grand juries in cases where it is deemed nec essary to prosecute the offending bankers to that extent. The final out come will probably be the taking of a test case to the Supreme Court of Florida. The State banks do not feel that they should be compelled to pay a tax from which the National banks are exempt, but in reply it is argued that if the State banks are allowed to dodge this'license because the Nation al banks are not compelled to pay it, tnen the mercnants and all other busi ness could decline to pay license be cause the banks were exempt, and the entire license law of the State would fall flat, a useless statute on the books. Long ago the offending bankers were reported to the State ComDtroll er. Tax collectors of the State are required to report to the State Comp troller regularly. The tax collectors are directly responsible to the State Comptroller, otherwise they would be free agents, governments within them selves, collecting from those whom they saw fit to tax and exempting those they chose to favor. ! Governor Takes Action. ' Tallahassee. Fla.. 6. 1915. The matter of the failure of some of the banks to pay the license tax re quired of them was for the first time brought to the attention of Governor Irammell last week by the Tax Com mission at which time he stated to the .Commission that he would take the 'matter up with the Tax Collectors as soon as he could get information a to the counties in which the law had not been enforced, requesting the , Commission to furnish him this infor mation. On Wednesday of this week the Commission reported to the Gover nor definitely regarding Citrus, Hills borough and Hernando Counties, and thereupon the Governor addressed a letter to the respective Tax Collec tors of these counties as follows: "My dear Sir: "It has been brought to my atten tion that you have failed to collect the license tax from a number of thii State Banks of your county. This matter is brought to your attention that you may proceed under the law and fully comply with the require ments of the law as provided in Sec tions 59 to 64, inclusive, of Chapter 6421 of the Laws of Florida. I un derstand that a very large majority of the State banks throughout Flori da have paid the license tax and it is not right that a few of them should be allowed to avoid the license re quirements unless the courts should hold that the law is not operative against them. Yours very truly, PARK TRAMMELL, Governor. When definite information is pro cured regarding other counties tho Governor will request the Tax Collec tors to proceed with the collection of any license tax remaining unpaid. True Democrat.

The third year it increased another million. Today this young bank is one of the four big banks of the state and it is housed in its own fifteen-story build ing at Laura and Forsyth streets. And this in a period of only three years. In early American banking, banks pulled business on the reputation of the institution, and the personal ac ouaintance of its officers and the way they were liked. It has been only comparatively recently that banks have used newspaper space to any great extent, but it is already the big and generally recognized third factor in the getting of new business.

It has been estimated 'hat deaths from tuberculosis cost the nation half a million dollars annually through the loss of wages and the value of the things workers would produce if they were not suffering from the disease. To conquer this eneicy of the human race more than $20,000,000 a year is expended. That the good work is pro gressing is shown by the fact that in 20 years the death rate from tubercu losis has been reduced from 245.4 to 15S per 100,000 population. . mj M' f Is w V -f SI' -f JJ tt - TT T. 7l 7r . 7r FLORIDA'S SCHOOLS. rTT TT rT TT TT; What's the matter with Florida's schools? Probably the same things that take from the fullest efficiency of schools in other southern states, if not in every state in the Union. In tho main, it is a lack of adaptability to the physical and mental capacities of the pupils, which detracts from their highest usefulness. It must be evident to students of psychology that the same methods of training do not fit all children equally well, and the inelasticity of the com mon school system requires that the child be accommodated to the sys tem rather than the system to the child. Much responsibility remains under this system with the t especially the teacher of the younger pupils, that the individual necessities be studied out and met. In the first place, the child of av erage mental capacity and physical activity should not be sent to school before it is seven years old. To this time of its life, knowledge is ac quired by observation and not by any processes of reasoning. Up to this period the child is an imitative little animal, whose chief occupation as growing, eating, sleeping, growing and playing, and undoubtedly this is of nature's planning. When it has completed its first sep tennium and from then to the tenth year, it begins to differentiate from other animals into the human, with its reasoning powers more or less in embrvo. but ready for the careful training of the schools. But the modern school system ig nores the physical needs as well as the mental capabilities of the averago youngster. While it fails largely to estimate the mental capacity and to adapt the school room work, it also guages the powers of bodily endur ance by that of the teacher, usually a person of adult years. The ten dency is to overtax the mental recep tivity of the child, perhaps to foster the budding genius of the 8-year old by making it keep pace with that of the child of a dozen years or more. Genius of the budding size should be repressed, not encouraged. And in the earlier years of school life the physical should be watched more carefully than the mental, for physical exhaustion spoils mental work, even makes it worse than use less. The daily sessions of Florida schools in the city or country, are too long for continuous work, in other words, recesses are too few and in many instances, too short. No child, boy or girl, from seven years up to the college time should be confined continuously in the school room with out relaxation for more than two hours. Two shorter sessions, with an hour for lunch between, are vastly better, more healthful, than one ses sion a dav that stretches from 8:30 a. m., to 1:30 or 2 p. m., and defers the noon lunch an hour or more beyond the proper and usual time. Grown men, especially those en gaged in office or mental work, often boast of going without lunch. That's their lookout and they are responsi ble for themselves, but no child should be punished that way. Relaxation and recreation should never be inter fered with by school work or hours. They should be provided before tha exhaustion of physical inaction be numbs the body and dulls the mind. To keep a child "in at recess" should not be within the authority of an'- teacher, for it is an unwarranted abuse of power. And for the growing, active the lunch and meal hours should be fixed. No school work should be al lowed to displace them. You don't expect your horse to do his best if you don't take care of him, and care means proper food at the proper time and plenty of it, and full hours of rest. Don't ask more of your child than of your horse. Florida's school schedules need re modeling and they must be changed substantially before the material ben efit from them shall be on a par with he excellence of the equipment that has been nrovided in the most pros perous and advanced counties and ci Hes nf the State.
