Sunday, Jan. 9th, Mr. R. A.
Sattenfield, of Black Point on ChoctawhatcheeBay, entertained a party of friends
from CampWalton, Five Mile Bayou and Garniers. The road working from CampWalton
on out continues slowly, but we hope, surely.
Mr. and Mrs.
Edwin Southwick were guests last
Sunday at a dinner given by Judge and
Mrs. WillCulberson on Five Mile
and Mrs. Avery, a newly wed couple of Pensacola,
are honeymooning at Garniers, at the bungalow of Mr. Avery’s relative, Mr. M.
H. Sullivan. Mr. Dallas
Duncan, of Town Point, has returned
to his Sturgeon fishing.
Clyde Webb and R. J. Henderson
of Crestview were visitors through here at CampWalton
and Garniers last week.*Several lines
unreadable at this point picks up* and when you come down to “brass tacks” and
really consider the matter, Garniers would not be a bad location after all, for
it is the most conveniently located place south of the railroad and the deepest
water and best harbor for the boats to be found is at Garniers, and the
Government Forest Headquarters are at Garniers, to say nothing of the other
many advantages, not considering the best and most likely place for the
railroad to terminate, and the most beautiful places for residences are to be
found at Garniers on that beautiful bayou, of anywhere else in the bay
country.All of you folks that are
pulling for the court house, need not get scared, for the people of Garniers
are not seeking any notoriety in the court house election, and are perfectly
willing that the court house go where it should.The people of the Bayou are generous and kind
hearted and believe in what is fair and just in all cases, but they won’t be
“run over” if they can help it, when other folks see to impose on them. Mr. and Mrs.
Edwin Southwick of Five Mile Bayou,
visited Capt. W. H. Keeler at “MagnoliaBeach”, Garniers, one day last week. Messrs. W.
R. Blount and D. W. Withrill, of
Pensacola, motored from Pensacola to Garniers and points inland last
week.They were guest of Mr. and Mrs. E. R. McKee at CampPinchot,
Garniers, last Thursday night. A number of Garniers people went to CampWalton
at various times last week, among whom are Capt.W.H. Keeler, Mesdames C. A. Early, Mary Scranton and Mrs. W. R. Brown. Prof.
E. A. Mooney was a passenger on the Ruth last Wednesday up from Pensacola to Mary Esther en route to his home at Garniers
after an extended business trip to Crestview, Milton and Pensacola.
Harris Harris is still “booming” shipping wood and lumber. Mr.
Allen Hart of Dorcas, Fla., is visiting his mother at this place. Mr.
Horace Martin has returned from Pensacola. Mrs.
Bessie Rogers of Mary Esther was a pleasant caller at the home of Mrs. J. T. Jones Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Homer
Jones visited Tuesday while en route
to where he will begin fishing.Homer
has been out West, but he says Destin is the best place. Misses Retta
Reddick, Myrtice and Claudy Reddick,
and Miss Maggie Lee/Lou? Etheridge
were callers at the home of Mrs. Wright
Sunday afternoon. Mr. S.I. Hart made his arrival Monday, after an absence of several
days.Where he has been we do not know,
as he visited several places in Fla. and Ala., traveling on a
“Ford” and of course we are glad to welcome him back.One especially, C!
School is progressing nicely.Have a few more pupils, Miss Lera and Ina Geohagan
being amongst them. Mr.
Ernest Morris and Mr. Lonnie Martin
called on the Misses Reddicks Sunday
CountyCommissioners Visit The BayCounty. CountyCommissionersJ. H. Givens, R. A. Rozier, W. J. Davis
and B.P. Edge visited the bay
country last week inspecting the road from Crestview to CampWalton. At CampWalton they were
cordially treated but the citizens of that burgh did not come out. At the Indianola Inn the Commissioners were
treated with more than normal courtesy and they are very loud in their praise
of that popular hotel.

FLORIDA’S ROADS MONEY $183,750
Share In Federal Appropriation
**Rest of Heading unable to
Tallahassee—Special from Washington, D. C. says: The federal government seems to be headed in
the direction to furnishing extensive and valuable aid to the state of Florida in the matter of
the construction and maintenance of roads. The house committee on roads has reported out
a bill, with its unanimous approval, which marks a long step toward federal aid
in road building throughout the country.It is obvious that the bill is going to have strong support. The good roads bill is now before congress,
under the most promising auspices, would give to the state of Florida every
year, $183,750, provided the state complies with certain conditions, among
which is the requirement that the state shall raise half the money for
roads—matching the government’s money dollar for dollar. The apportionment is based on population and
post-road miles within the state.For
the entire country the bill carries an annual appropriation of $25,000,000 to
aid the states in road **paper torn at this point.**The purpose of the act is to make every
dollar of the government go as far as possible in the direction of scientific
Big Deal in Cattle St. Lucie—the biggest cattle
deal which has taken place in this county for some time was consummated here,
when ownership of the entire stock of range cattle of H. A. Holmes, wife, Mrs.
Carrie U. Holmes, and daughter, Mrs.
Vergie Bothwell, was transferred to Nathan
Holmes.Necessary legal steps have
also been initiated for the transfer of the stock of the minor daughters of H. A. Holmes to Nathan Holmes. The entire deal involves 3,000 head of
cattle, more or less, ranging in St. Lucie, Brevard and Osceola counties.The total consideration of the three deals
already recorded in the office of the county clerk is $36,000, and it is
understood that the other deals, which legally authorized, will bring the
amount up to $40,000.
Onion Club is Formed Fernandina—The fears of the
onion growers that the seeds planted would not grow have been allayed,
especially in the minds of the members of the Fernandina Onion Club.The young plants are growing thick and fast
in the demonstration patch, and the members of the club are very much
gratified.They have pinned their faith
to this demonstration and have invested their time and money in it, for they
realize, in part at least, what a successful demonstration of this kind means
to the future welfare of AmeliaIsland. They say that there is money in onions—big
money—and there will be a stampede in onion growing.
Development A Tampa
cigar company has increased its capital stock from $30,000 to $100,000. St.
Petersburg people will vote in February on an improvement
bond issue of $176,000. Commissioners of PinellasCounty
will ask for an injunction against a further fight against the good-roads bond
issue of $715,000. Jacksonville
reports that hundreds of home seekers are arriving in that city from Northern states. On February 7 the commissioners of OsceolaCounty
will order an election for bond Issue of $150,000, with which a road will be
paved with sand asphalt from St. Cloud to BrevardCounty.Districts 1 and 2 of the same county will be bonded for $200,000 for
roads. R.E. Olds is said to have purchased 37,000
acres of land in Hillsborough and PinellasCounties, near LakeButler,
for $500,000. Yachts from northern points, including Chicago, are arriving in Tampa for the Gasparilla Carnival.
Many Great Drainage Projects Tallahassee—Drainage, like
good roads, has been one of the great features of the year, and projects
aggregating 1,255,627 acres, are now under way outside of the great Everglades
drainage scheme.Many of the other plans,
however, are well under way, in some of them work being in progress.Contracts have been let in others and work is
delayed only by the money stringency due to war. On the east coast the upper St. Johns River
District is probably the biggest job, comprising 263,000 acres of land in
Brevard, Orange and OsceolaCounties.The district has been organized and the
survey completed, but no contract let. Florida
now has a very favorable drainage law under way which the major **rest of
paragraph is torn.**
May Entertain National Guard Jacksonville—Jacksonville may
entertain the 1917 convention of the National Guard Association of the United States.The 1916 meeting will be held in Ashville, N.C., winning
the convention at the meeting last November in San Francisco, Cal. Already there is a movement on foot among
officers of the National Guard of Florida, who are residents of Jacksonville, to invite the association to hold its 1917
gathering in the Land
The convention would bring several hundred
delegates to the city from every state in the Union, as well as far away
Hawaii, and is a most desirable body to entertain, as its personnel is of a
particularly high standard, and includes some of the most prominent men in the
Depot Hearing to Take Place Tallahassee—The Florida Supreme Court convened for the regular
January term.The docket is a large one and
will require some time to clear. A case of importance is that of the
Jacksonville Union Depot and its site, which will be orally argued on the first
day of February.The railroads of Jacksonville were ordered
by the Florida Railroad Commission to erect a new Union Depot on the Myrtle Avenue site,
but the railroads mandamuses the railroad commissioners and the matter has gone
to the supreme court of the state for final settlement. A great array of legal talent is expected to
be present at the time.
Planning For Street Paving Fellsmere—Commencing a
program of a year’s activity in local improvements of every nature, the town
commission at its January meeting held recently favorably considered an
ordinance providing for the paving of Broadway and South Carolina Avenue south
to Pennsylvania Avenue and Pennsylvania east from Broadway to Willow Street and
corporation line.From North Carolina Avenue south
to New York Avenue
a paving fifty feet wide is required and from that point south to Pennsylvania Avenue
the ordinance provides for paving twenty-one feet wide.
To Sell Good Road Bonds Tallahassee—The county commissioners of LeonCounty
were in session and ordered the clerk of the board to advertise for bids on one
hundred thousand dollars of the recent issue of good roads bonds voted in this
county.The issue was for two hundred
thousand dollars, but the board thought it more economical to wait later to
sell the other half of the issue and thereby save some interest.Bids are to be opened January 21, and as soon
as the money is in hand, work will begin vigorously on the Dixie Highway with the view ofits early completion through this county.
OrangeCounty To Build New Jail Orlando—the county commissioners have accomplished much work
of vital interest to the welfare of the county.
Possibly no one act of the
body was of more real satisfaction to the people of Orlando than their positive decision to build
a new county jail.The antiquated old
brick Bastille in NorthOrangeCounty
has done duty **Rest of Article Torn**
Pensacola Working for
Navy Yard Pensacola—Determined to put Pensacola’s advantages squarely before the
senate committee on naval affairs,
President Dobson of the Chamber of Commerce, wired to Chairman Padgett of the naval affairs committee.The telegram puts forward Pensacola as the only logical port for the
location of a navy yard of the first class with a mammoth graving dock.The communication is the result of the
testimony of Admiral Stanford before the senate committee when he stated that
only one navy yard of the United
States is adequately equipped for handling
the large battleships of the present and those now planned or under construction.
As Salads Should Be Every Detail Must Be Carefully Looked Into
Smallest Thing That Is Forgotten May Completely Mar
the Savoriness ofPreparation When They
Go To The Table Salad depends for its savoriness on the minutest
details of its seasoning.To be sure,
the greens of which it is made must be fresh and crisp. But given crisp, fresh
lettuce, watercress, escarole, endives or any other salad greens, the cook who
understands the blending of seasonings can produce a savory salad at slight expense
of time or money. To begin with, vinegar holds many
possibilities.It should be bland.Then, with a foundation of bland vinegar, the
experienced salad maker concocts different flavored vinegars.In one bottle she puts a tablespoonful of
celery seed, and fills the bottle with vinegar.After this has stood for a week it has a very good flavor.A few cloves of garlic are put into another
bottle of vinegar.A bay leaf is soaked
in still another. When mixing French dressing these various
vinegars are used to give different flavors.They can also be used in mayonnaise. A little crushed mint can be soaked in
vinegar, just before it is used for French dressing. **Torn part of paper here but
is talking about using Lemon Juice in dressing** Put a slice of onion under a little slice of
bread on the bottom of the dish in which salad stands.This keeps the onion from touching the salad
and at the same time the onion flavor permeates the whole mass. Add Worcestershire sauce to French dressing
for a flavoring touch liked b the English. A little Roquefort cheese creamed into French dressing
gives a rich flavor that some people like.
Jellied Plum Pudding Soak half a box of gelatin in cold water, dissolved,
then add a cupful of scalded milk, half a cupful of sugar and strain.When cold beat till frothy and add the
stiffly beaten whites of two eggs and a cupful of candied fruits cut in small
pieces and soaked for an hour in rum.Drain the fruits before adding to the jelly.As the jelly stiffens fold in half a pint of
whipped cream and a tablespoonful of sherry or brandy. Pour into a wet mold and

season with pepper and heat thoroughly.Serve with a garnish of watercress.It is well to cover the canapés while heating them, otherwise the salmon

cupful molasses, one-fourth cupful melted butter, one-half cupful warm water,
two cupfuls of flour sifted with one teaspoonful each of cassia, ginger, and
soda and one-half teaspoonful salt.Bake
in individual tins.

Mr. J. E.
McElroy, of the Agricultural
Department of the L & N R. R. was here last week to arrange for a date of
holding a farmers meeting and we call every farmer’s attention to the
advertisement in another column of this paper.The meeting at this place will be Monday Feb. 14th, at The growing of cotton is a thing of the past,
and the farmer will have to diversify and we urge every farmer and others
interested to attend these meetings. A.
G. Campbell, Judge of the Judicial Circuit, appears in this issue.Judge
Campbell is too well known to our readers to need any comment from us.Judge
Campbell was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Judge Emmett Wolfe, who resigned the office about a year ago.Judge
Campbell has made a fine record as a Judge, and he now desires to succeed
himself. Yesterday will mark a day in the history of Pensacola.At last it has another railroad connecting it
with the outside world, through trains arriving there yesterday from Birmingham, Ala
over the Gulf-Florida & Alabama railroad.For years Pensacola has been a bottled up
city but now the ice being broken we are sure this is only the beginning of the
great things in store for the metropolis of West Florida. Laurel Hill, OkaloosaCounty and all of West Florida rejoice
in its good fortune. Anyhow, no objections are being heard these
days to the progressive spirit of OkaloosaCounty.

Times.) Let him enjoy himself to the top of his best,
sing his growing collection of Songs of Hate, and makes all the rumpus that his
multilateral, expansive nature requires for its expression.He is the chartered libertine of speech.He is always robustious.He defines challenges, arraigns, denounces.He has views on everything and scorns to hide
them from the public. But who grudges him his joy of battling
words?Whether he stirs sympathy,
amazement, amusement, or weariness, according to the ears of his hearers, he is
always full of eruption.His personality
is unfailingly interesting alike to those who worship him and those who damn
him.Long may he wave and rave, having a
“bully time” in private life.
TO THE PEOPLE OF OKALOOSACOUNTY. The question of a Court House Election having
been brought before the Board of County Commissioners in the form of petitions,
asking for such an election, we wish to ask the people to carefully consider
certain facts before demanding that we order such election. The Board of Commissioners according to law
have put the county to the expense of preparing temporary quarters for the
County Government and said quarters are ample to accommodate the County for
some time to come. The financial condition of the County is not
such as to warrant the further expense of holding an election and building of a
Court House and Jail, at the present time. It is the opinion of the Board that** (this
part of the paper torn.) It is such that the Board should not at this time
increase their burden of taxation by running the county in debt by building a
Court House and Jail. The Board therefore wish the people to that
know that it is their desire to conduct the affairs of the county in the most
efficient and economical manner possible and in the interest of every tax payer
in the county, and we ask your support and cooperation to this end.

FEEDING ANIMAL MATTER
ECONOMICAL (By M. BOYER) Up to about 1889, winter egg-production was
not much of a feature, great as the demand was, for the reason that there
seemed no possible way of getting the hens down to solid work. There was an improvement, however, when
better houses, better feeding and better care were employed; but still the
supply was meager considering the output at the present day. The matter of food finally became a serious
subject, resulting in the conclusion that more animal food must be placed on
the bill of fare. But how to furnish is economically did not
manifest itself until F.W. Mann, in
1889, invented and placed on the market a crude machine, but, nevertheless, the
initiative of the present high-class green-bone cutters now so extensively
used.This was the original bone-cutter,
and it is a matter of poultry history that the term bone-cutter was actually
coined by Mr. Mann. According to analysts by Prof. James E. Rice the nutritive value of green bone is which is greater than any other
form of meat _________ , dried blood, dried fish or animal meal. Hens are worm and insect hunters, and where
they do not have a range, must be supplied a substitute in some form.Particularly in the summer, the handiest meat
food is meat scraps and meat meal, many brands of which are used. It is best to mix the meat in the real
feed.But in the case of green cut bone
it is more satisfactory to feed in troughs, allowing a pound of green bone for
every 16 fowls, or, an ounce per head. The animal foods the fowl’s gather while on a
free range are usually high in percentage of nitrogenous matter, and not a
large proportion of fat.Many of the
artificial foods, excepting such as dried blood and skim milk, contain, usually
besides nitrogenous matter, a high percentage of fat which is not especially
desired in compounding a ration. Mistakes have been made in feeding green bone
in giving too liberal a quantity.An
excess will produce aggravated diarrhea and worms and a too liberal supply of
meat scrap is apt to cause an over fat condition of the fowls. It may be possible to have poultry live
without any animal matter, but for profit and thrift it is necessary that they
receive a certain per cent of meat in the daily bill of fare, especially when
they are confined to runs, or to houses in winter. Its is claimed that 100 pounds of fresh hen
manure contains about 50 pounds of water, 16 pounds of organic matter and 36
pounds ash.Analysis shows that poultry
manure contains 2.43 per cent phosphoric acid, 2.26 per cent potash, and 3.25
per cent nitrogen, as ammonia and organic matter. The average hen outlives her usefulness in
two years and is more profitable sent to market.There are at times good hens in the third and
even in the fourth year, but the average limit is two.Old hens are more likely to contract diseases
than the younger ones. It is a good plan to have awnings or hoods of
cheap muslin or boards to go over the windows of the hen house in summer to
keep out the sun and thus keep the house cooler.It is not advisable, however, to have these
awnings up during the winter, as the sunlight is needed in the house to purify
it. When the leg is bent the bird cannot open its
foot.That is why it does not fall off
the perch at night when asleep.When a
hen is walking it closes its toes as it raises its foot and opens them as the
foot touches the ground. The imports of the products of poultry
culture into this country from foreign countries shows that the field is still
open to a large increase of the industry in the United States, and that the
opportunity is waiting for those wanting to take advantage of it. Compared with well-rotted barnyard manure,
there are 48.60 pounds of phosphoric acid in hen manure to six in barnyard
manure; 41 pounds of potash to 10 in barnyard manure and 67 pounds nitrogen to
11 in barnyard manure.This analysis is
based on a ton each of hen and barnyard manures. It is common to call all poultry “chickens”
but strictly speaking, a chicken is a young fowl, generally under six months of
age, and a “fowl” is one over that age.On the same basis, a young male under one year of age, or a young female
of the same age, are known as cockerel and pullet, respectively.They become cock and hen after that. Referring to the value of coal tar, Hotchkiss
says that if it is put in rat holes, runs, etc., rats, mice, minks and weasels
will desert the premises.It is equally
effective for lice, by coating it on the roost.For the latter it may be thinned with gasoline, if desired, and applied
to perch and walls of the poultry houses with a whisk broom once a year.The writer has found gas tar an excellent
remedy for scaly legged fowls.

HARD Land of Graves Shows
More Depressing Than Belgium
or East Prussia
is Picture of Rule and Destruction Over Vast Area of County.
Warsaw—Even more depressing than parts of Belgium
and East Prussia, the worst parts, is Poland—a
land of graves and trenches, of ruin and destruction on a scale that has been
wrought nowhere else by the war. The conflict has been waged back and forth
across the ancient kingdom so long that agriculture has had but little chance,
and, except in those sections where the German forces have been in control for
some time, the fields are barren and untilled, scarred by miles upon miles of
earthworks. From the East Prussian boundary to
approximately the old Rawka positions there is visible the maximum amount of
order and peaceful quiet.At the Rawka,
however, the interminable graves with their helmet, adorned crosses, the deep
slashes in the earth that once were trenches but now are the temporary “homes”
of countless refugees, the maze of partly destroyed barbed wire entanglements
and the succession of burned and ruined villages begin. For miles, between Alexandrovo on the
boundary and Warsaw, and between Warsaw and Lodi,
the old trenches line the railroad, while graves, individual and common, line
the trenches.Eastward of Warsaw, however, the trenches virtually stop, for the
Russiansmoved fast once they abandoned
the capital of Poland.The trenches stop, but the devastated
villages do not.Rather they increase in
number, and there is scarcely a railroad station – and no bridges—left
standing. The Poles from time immemorial have been
accustomed to building their thatched cottages—huts would be a better
word—close together.Accordingly, it was
necessary only to set fire to one structure in order to burn them all.In consequence countless villages have been
reduced to forlorn rows of chimneys, which, being of brick and stoutly built,
resisted the flames. Unlike the cities of Poland, the
country seems to have been stripped of young men.One sees little else than peasant women,
barefoot, ill clad, who struggle under bundles of wood through the mud, and who
generally avert their eyes as strangers pass. The Germans, partly for their own benefit, partly
to give employment to the Poles, have done much to put the notoriously bad
roads in shape.They have also altered
the railroad from the Russian to the German gauge—a stupendous work, for all
the main lines are now double track, and at important pointshuge yardshave had to be built to conform to military needs. The destruction in many parts of Poland is so
general that village after village has no single house standing.Both soldiers and the civil population have
had to rely on their inventiveness to obtain shelter, and all along the
railroad lines freight cars, Russian and German, are being used as houses.In the case of the Russian cars the wheels
have been removed, the cars have been set flat on the ground and the interiors
fitted up with some degree of comfort.
INSISTS KAISER HAS CANCER Matin Says Artificial
Palate WasConsidered by French Specialists Before the War.
Paris—The Matin revives the storythat the Kaiser is suffering from cancer.The paper says a telegram displayed at Zurich on December 24 said thatt he court physicians at Berlin were of the opinion that the Kaiser’s
illness is due to a fresh manifestation of cancer. The Matin adds that a practitioner living in Paris was consulted by
the German emperor three months before the war concerning the manufacture of an
artificial palate if a serious operation on the Kaiser’s throat were necessary.
