From Florida In a letter to F. V. Alexander, John Spriggs says, In writing of Florida ac cording to my promise I will confine my-self to the parts I have seen, as it is a very spoted country or 1 might say a kind of sandwich country that is made up in slices of good and bad so that a general description would be hard to get at, in this vicinity the prevailing timber is long leaf or turpentine pine, what is termed the low rich pine land, soil is a ! dark vegatable mold mixed with a small percent of very fine grey sand underlaid with clay subsoil. The Hanock lands are densley tim bered with live Oak, Hickory, Gum, Ash, Uaswood, Mahogany, lilack and Green Ebony, soft Maple, 1 leech and many other tree including Magnolia and Cyprus and Red Cedar the latter prmci paly in the swamps while the Fern grows in what is termed high Hanock although the big Hanock land is very damp but a deep rich Black soil to the depth of two foot or more, the climate of Florida so far is as near ierfect as can be found any where, I think, and any one that can get a winter home here I think would be benifited a the w eather is at all times pleasant during the winter, true it is a little chilly at night though not freezing cold, there has leen several times when your coat w as comfortable and a little fire became necessary, yet ice has only formed twice in small ponds where water was per fectly still, nothing was hurt except real tender vegetables such as Beans and Tomatoes, w ho were foolish enough to have them coming up at that time of year. But the.weather is now lineunb spring has commenced and every body is busy puting in their early spring crops some have their Irish iotatoes al ready, they raise every thing here they do in the north except wheat, clover, timothy and many other things that do not grow there that is only adapted to southern climes. The fruits consist of all the semi and some of the tropical fruits. There is no stone or under brush except in the Hanock lands,their is quite a lot of the raw palmetto in clumps or patches growing from 3 to 5 feet high with a regular palm leaf and some edges on the leaf stem that cuts like a knife, they are a mean thing to get out of the ground, ,1 think they are worse than the pine stumps as the roots grow all over the top of the ground as large as ones leg and it is impossible to plow where they are untill they are all grubbed out. At present Florida is in its infancy, the country is new and money is needed to develop it, already the country is doted all over with settlers, rough small houses, clearing and improving their land, so that the average at this point (,St Johns Park colony) under estima tion is small but inside of five years if the present energy is kept up instead of scattering pine woods doted w ith shant ies you w ill see fine residence having the appearance of a city with buildings on each 10 acres or more of land w ith orchard, orange groves and gardens, this is the future of this country and any one can not go wrong in buying land while it is cheap, as it is advancing in price right along though their are yet a few tracts that can be had at from $3.". to ?100. per acre. I believe this is all. John J. Spriggs. Omega I. O., Florida. Lamb Hissed Mis Own Fare. Lamb's unfortunate farce, "Mr. H.," has one of the shortest theatrical titles on record, and it could not pos sibly have had a shorter theatrical life, since It was performed only cmce. Lamb, as everybody knows, "hissed and hooted as loudly as any of his neighbors." Writing to Wordsworth the follow ing day he said: "A hundred hisses (damn the word I write it like kisses how diff rent!) a hundred hisses outweigh a thousand . claps The former come more directly from the heart. Well, it's withdrawn and there Is an end." But it Is to be ob servei that he did not curse his audi ence, as your modern playwright would have done, for Lamb happened to be r. sound and sane critic ef his own work. Medical Advertising In Japan. In future no licensed medical prac tlouer will be permitted to advertise in Japan details of methods of medical treatment or the history or success of such methods. Doctors and dentists connected with hospitals or engaging in general practice will not be allowed to advertise any information beyond that Indicating their degrees and spe cialties. In this respect the ordinance approximates perhaps more to the American idea of what is legitimate, for it is quite common to find in trans atlantic Journals small rectangular spaces containing the name, address and telephone number of some prac titioner, with an indication of the branch or branches of work in which he claims to be especially adept and Instructed. WARNED AGAINST IDLE LIFE The Gold Bug. Every time we make up our mind that there's no such thing as pirate gold buried hither and yon, something occurs to change our belief and to get us all on edge again. The recent se vere storm along the coast of Yuca tan is said to have uncovered thou sands of last century English and Spanish coins buried by the old pirate Lafltte, and again into our soul comes that old boyhood unrest and belief that if we started out with a proper digging outfit and a reliable map we could unearth treasure galore. When people find a pot of gold, why In the name of Capt. Kidd can't they keep still about it and let us 'tend to our blissful knitting? Doston Herald. Englishman Couples Words of Wis dom with his Disposition of Large Estate. A striking appeal to rich young men not to allow their wealth to tempt them into habits of loafing and Idle ness is made by the late Lieut. Col Edward Tufnell in his will, disposing of an estate valued at 343,624 gross and net personality 103,199. Col. Tufnell, who had residences 1 Eaton square, at the Grove, Wimble don park and Crowhurst park, Sussex, was unionist M. P. for Southeast Sus sex from 1900 to 1906, and was for merly a member of the king's body guard. The appeal against leafiag is male in the following remarkable clause in bis will: "I desire to bring home to the minds of my sons, and of cash and every young man who may hereafter take benefit in my property under this my will, how strongly I hold to the view that every man should, during some substantial portion of his life, have some definite occupation, and lead a useful life, and should not suffer wealth or any accession of wealth or other temptation to tempt him into idleness, and a mere loaing and use less existence. "I might have bo framed this my will as to have made idleness operate to forfeit the interests hereby con ferred on my sons or other young men in my property, but I foresee that such a provision might, in certain cases, work hardships, and I prefer to hope and to trust, as I do, that no son of mine and no other young man who may under this my will succeed to the enjoyment of any property of mine, will so disregard my views here in expressed as to lead the life I so strongly deprecate.'' Col Tufnell himself always led a strenuous life. He saw active ser vice In the Nile expedition of 1884-5, when serving in the Eighteenth Royal Irish Regiment. London Express. Human Life for 1910 Other magazines cover the field of fiction, history, science, etc.' and do it well but the exclusive field of human life with its wealth of material strang er, more fascinating than any fiiction ever ienneU, is covered by but one publication and this is Human Life. Its pages are an epitome of the vital history of this marvelous twentieth century. Naturally, with such a field, no defi nite program for 1910 can be pre-ar ranged. At the threshold of the year who can tell what great events are in the making on the loom of time what vast discoveries, what revolutionizing inventions, what colossal undertakings? For the immediate present Alfred Hen ry Iwis will continue his enlighten ing series on President Taft and the in side history of men and affairs at the nation's capitol. Vance Tompson will be to the fore with an illuminating article on Jaures the Red Orator, his residence in Paris giving him peculiar facilities for getting at the inside facts in the matter. Charles Edward Husselj will have an absorbing story on the Mystery of Dreyfus, while the regular departments of ,4Celebritie8 of All Sorts," "Actresses of Today," "Modern Mortals," etc., will continue to be crisp, up-to-date entertaining as ever.

The county has been fortunate in having had several good men in the position, but none of his predecessors have been more indefatiga ble and painstaking In their work than has Mr. Lavery, and he retires with the friendliest regard of all with whom he has come in business or , social con tact.

The military department at St. Pe tersburg is taking considerable inter est in a new system of wireless teleg raphy which has been invented by a Russian student. It is claimed that messages have been sent from St Petersburg to Sevastopol and received accurately. One of the principal fea tures of the new system is that mes sages cannot be tapped by outside sta tions, and it is intended to build a station in the Ural mountains to con nect with a similar station to be built in Vladivostock. The station will be built by the military engineers at a a cost of about $50,00 f pld. 8poke French. "On our honeymoon I spoke French to my husband so that people wouldn't understand us."
