PROBST SALES C( 121 South Second Street, - - PALATKA, FLORIDA Putnam County Ayents Hi 3! l&aibafli PRESIDENT FOR SUFFRAGE (Chattanooga News) The president, in a telegram to Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, president of the national America" Woman's Suffrage association, said: "May I not express to your 6rgafi"ization, as well aa to the women of North Dakota, my congratulations upon the passage by the legislature of that state of a bill granting the women of the state the right to vote for presidential electors and for mu nicipal officers? As you know, I have a real interest in the extension of the suffrage to the women, and I feel that every step in this direction should be applauded." On Thursday the president should be given an opportunity to send Mrs. Catt another telegram congratulating her that the great state of Tonnes see, the home of Jackson, Polk and Johneon, had voted also to extend wo men the right of the suffrage in presi dential and municipal elections. Tennessee once was first among the states in every matter of progressive legislation. In 1795, when Tennes see adopted a constitution for entry into t'.:e Union, Thomas Jefferson said it was the most republican of any con stitution yet adopted by a state. In the middle period of the nineteenth century the state, led by a bril'.ir.rt co terie of statesmen, was a pivotal state and frequently pointed the way. Now the great old Volunteer State, with its traditions of justice, and es pecially of courtesy to women, has the opportunity to do this matter of right. Why should not Tennessee be first in a movement which is bound to sweco the south as it has the west? What inspiration there is in the community of interest in politicr.l matters be tween the south and the wert! They agree on practically all other ques tions. Why not on suffrage? The arguments made against an equal franchise are mostly arch aic. They might have been suited to the day when the women of the house hold were kont w-asy from moring to night at spinning wheel and loom. They apply to the period when educa tion for women was opposed. They were then called queens, but were really made household drudges. The anti-suffrage sentiment now finds most lodgment in breasts which are imbued with the idea of holding wo men in subjection and denying them equal participation in the affairs of the world. But the wave already has swept over all opposition in business, indus try, professions and in church, social and club matters. " The ballot ought to have come first. That it comes last is due first to the selfishness of the male sex, who, hav ing from time immemorial enjoyed a special privilege, wish to keep it in their own hands, and, second, it has been slow in coming because women have been cowed and intimidated by ridicule and threats, so that mr.ny have not dared express their opin- ,is bad as we think at this time, and ! AGRICULTURE FIELD NOTES. L. Cantrell, County Agent. Owing to the' recent freeze most of the vegetables have been killed, and as a result the prices of these commodi ties are going to be higher than ever before. Hence it is doubly impor tant that we should begin at once and replant these crops in order to be able to supply the great demand, and at the same time reap the high prices that will surely be paid. For the benefit of those who will plant their crops over, I give below a list of the vegetables that can be planted in this and the next month. February Adams' early corn, beets beans, brussels sprouts, cabbage, can taloupes, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, Irish potatoes, lettuce, mustard, ok ra, onions, peper, radishes, squashes, spinach, and kale. March beans, beets, cantaloupes, carrots, cauliflower, cowpeas, cucum bers, early corn, eggplants, Irish po tatoes, lettwe, mustard, okra, onions, peper, pumpkin, radishes, squash, su gar corn, tomatoes and watermelon. Thousrh the freeze has done a lot of damage, yet, we hope that it is not In how many households are the women secretly longing for this privi lege and yet fraid of ridicule or that it will, after all, prove a bles sing in disguise.

Only through their tire less efforts have I been able to enroll such a number. And by such a com bined effort, it is not going to be long before every boy in this county, be tween the ages of ten and eighteen years, will be enlisted in this great army of club members, and Putnam county will then, favorably, mark time with the leading counties of the coun try, t It is not too eariy nor too late to call attention to the importance of spray ing against blight diseases.

I C- COUNTY AGENTS' REPORTS. i The farmers in Brevard county are planning for a large acreage of corn and feed crops this spring, says A. R. Nielsen, county agent, and with this they are planning to get good dairy cattle into the county. Hog? are also receiving much attention, and they are making plans for the cooperative buying of this stock for the early summer. The banks will finance farmers in the undertaking if the farmers will show that enough feed will be grown. glibly of southern chivalry and of placing woman on a pedestal, the pedestal woman is entitled to is built I on a foundation of justice. The president is showing his keen interest in the suffrage movement. ! His message should settle the matter in the Tennessee legislature. Every democrat should vote for the bill. The republican party is just as strongly pledged. There should be no question as to the enactment of the measure. roR.

By following such a system of farm ing he is, to a certain degree, always ready to meet most any emergency that may arise.

When you have a severe headache, j accompanied by a coated tongue, j loathing of food, constipation, torpid liver, vomiting of partly digested food and then bile, you may know that you have a severe bilious attack. While you may be quite sick there is much consolation in knowing that re lief may be had by taking three of Chamberlain's Tablets. They are prompt and effectual. Obtainable everywhere. AN AGED WOMAN Telia How Vinol Made Her Strong In her eighty-second year Mrs. John Wickersham, of Russellvillc, Pa., says: "I was in a run-down, feeble condition and had lost flesh. A neighbor asked me to try Vinol, and after taking two bottles my strength returned; I am gaining in flesh, it has built up my health and I am feeling fine for a woman of my age, so I get around and do my housework." ' The reason Vinol was so successful in Mrs. Wickersham's case was be cause it contains the very elements needed to build her up. Ackerman-Stewart Drug Co, Palatka. Giving the States a Chance. The Supreme Court of the United States by a vote of 7 to 2 has upheld the Webb-Kenyon Law, prohibiting the shipmei.t of liquor from wet into dry States. For booze the State line is now the dead line. In rendering this decision the court has cut the Gordian knot by which national con- trol of interstate commerce held help- j less the State control of the liquor j bus iness. Booze shipments are now i subject to State police power and can i no longer claim exemption by posing as interstate commerce. According to press reports, Chief Justice White used the following language in an nouncing the decision: The all-reaching power of Gov ernment over liquor is settled. There was no intention of Con gress to forbid individual use of liquor. The purpose of this act was to cut out bv the roots the practice of permitting violation of State liquor laws. We can have no doubt that Congress has com plete authority to prevent paraly zing of State authority. Con gress exerted a power to coordi nate the national with the State authority. No amount of comment can add any thing to the clearness and complete ness of that summary. The States that mean business are now able to wipe out whisky within their borders. Dry laws can now be made to live to the last letter of the statute instead of being subject to practical nullifica tion by anyone able to read booze ad vertising and to pay express charge on the original packages thus marl" available. This is not onlv a victorv for the dry cause, but also for the Police authority of the State r.rH fnr the better adjustment of that authori ty to me powers or the Federal Gov ernment. It is not too much to say that this decision is a landmark in the interpretation of our constitutional law in its relation to the social evo lution of the United States. Collier's Weekly.
