Several Bills Well Along, Some Meas
ures Being Nearly Ready to
Washington.—The fact that Presi
dent Taft in his New York speech
picked out for his subject postal sav
ings banks, interstate commerce leg
islation. anti-.njunction, statehood and
conservation of natural resources
seems to mark these as subjects for
early consideration by congress. Es
pecially is this true for the reason
that measures to carry out these party
pledges have reached advanced stages
before the appropriate commi**'*^.
It is remarked also that the charac
ter of Mr. Taft’s allusions to the fed
eral incorporation bill would hardly
justify the placing of that measure
in the first rank of administration
measures, while the fact that ship
subsidy was ignored altogether makes
it questionable whether the executive
will bring pressure to bear to promote
its chances.
Ship subsidy legislation seems al
m,ost certain to pass the senate, but
the democrats in the house are pre
paring to line up against the bill and
believe that with some republican as
' sistance they will be able to defeat it.
It is not improbable that the senate
would then resort to placing the meas
| ure upon the postoffice appropriation
; bill as a rider, in which event a second
\ contest would be precipitated in the
| house.
It is expected that the select com
mittee of the senate designed to con

; the price of food products and other
necessaries of life will be announced

There is little doubt that the republic
an membership of the committee will
I consist of Senator Lodge, chairman,
and Senators Elkins, McCumber,
Smoot and Crawford. The democratic
membership has not been determined,
but indications are Senator Simmons
of North Carolina and Senator Clarke
of Arkansas will be asked to officiate
on behalf of the minority membership.
The question of whether the house
committee on ways and means will
undertake the investigation of the
high cost of living in view of the ac
tion the senate is taking is undeter
mined. There is no demand for a
: rival inquiry and the indications are
that the house will be willing to leave
the whole subject to the senate, as
the latter s probe is intended to con
stitute a defense of republican prin
ciples and is designed for use in the
coming congresssional elections.
Postal savings banks and appropria
tion bills will take up practically the
entire week in the senate. In the
house the rivers and harbors bill will
probably occupy considerable time
and there are other appropriation
bills ready for consideration. Among
these is the postoffice bill carrying
5240,000,000, and the Indian bill. It is
unlikely that any of the administra
j tion bills will be considered in the
house this week.
Swedish Department Will Be Trans

Chicago.—The executive committee

steamer Osciris, having taken a cabin

der the name of T. Craig. He and his
wife arrived Sunday. He declined, to
be interviwed.
The Coming of Roosevelt.
Berlin.—The Foreign office has en
deavored for some time to learn Just
when Former President Roosevelt ex
pects to be in Germany, but is still in
the dark as to his plans. It has been
widely published that Mr. Roosevelt
will be in Berlin on April 28, but if
this is so, it is not known officially and
the situation is embarrassing in a way,
as Emperor William’s spring plans
cannot be definitely arranged in the
meantime, because his majesty pur
poses to be in the capital when his
guest arrives.
Uncle Sam Needs Teachers.
Washington.—The dearth of teach
ers in the Indian service is the educa
tional problem that is confronting the
civil service commission. The great
est necessity exists in the demand for
male teachers, who are married,, to
take charge of the day schools, al
though female teachers in the board
ing schools are also needed. An
examination for teachers will be held
April 13, at several cities in each
state and territory, and It is expected
that from those who pass these exam
l (nations appointments will be made.

One of the most tremendous land
movements ever seen in America Is
progressing at the present time to
wards Burbank-Ocala Colony, in
Marion County, Florida. One simply
cannot comprehend what it means to
see a thousand people purchasing
farms in just a few days. One has
no idea of a country that one month
contains no habitations, and the next
thirty days is dotted over with cot
tages; is throbbing and active with
life and movement, and is the center
of improvement that equals, if not sur
passes. those great days of the far
w?est when whole counties were peo

Hut thi3 movement towards Florida
CHAS. H. SI Eli.
Florida's New Empire Builder
is iar more interesting and ot greater
import than any movement towards
land heretofore recorded in this coun
try. The primal influence of this
great movement is Charles H. Sieg
ind the organization which he has
This man is the pioneer of Florida
In the matter of placing northern men
and women upon Florida farms. Less
than one year ago Charles H. Sieg or
ganized nis first colony, which was lo
cated in St. Johns Park, Florida.
Every acre of the 30,000 comprising
this colony was sold within 30 days.
The demand was so great that Mr.
Sieg secured another tract of land,
amounting to some 36,000 acres, at
Jacksonville Heights, and this in turn
was sold out with the rapidity of the
first colony.
Today at these two great colonies,
St. Johns Park and Jacksonville
Heights, are to be seen many beauti
ful cottages: hundreds of farms are
being worked; settlers are thoroughly
satisfied: land values have arisen
: 100%. and many of those settlers who
; bought land, and have not even im
proved it as yet, are actually refusing
In profits more than the amount of
money they paid for their homes.
Then Mr. Sieg began his search for
his greatest and his best Florida farm
community. After careful scrutiny
of all Florida lands, he decided that
Marion County, north of the County
Seat, Ocala held the greatest promise
for his ideals, and he purchased a
large tract of land here.
Upon one side of this property lies
the Atlantic Coast Lin.e Railroad; on
the other, the Seaboard Air Line; and
through the heart of it travels the
Ocala & Northern Railroad. Upon
the eastern border of the colony,
which Mr. Sieg has called Burbank
Ocala. the beautiful Ocklawaha river
runs, and over the breast of its waters
travel passenger and freight steam
ers from Palatka to Silver Springs.
Tins stows how easr tt 19 to clear land, simply by
setting tire to the stuxrtps. which contain
large quantities of turpentine.
It is thus seen that transportation, j
the greatest and most necessary ot all I
adjuncts to a farm community, j
reaches its highest point of develop- j
! ment at Burbank-Ocala Colony.
But a short time ago Charles H. !
Sieg announced through the public
press his intention of selling this prop- |
erty. as he had sold his former colo- I
' nies in 1909. The response to these j
; announcements was so great that it I
| surpassed the ideas of Mr. Sieg. To- 1
day the evidence which this man has
| at his finger ends of the enormous
| demand for Florida soil, is more aston
j ishing than the" reading of a work of
Surely this is the day of back to
the soil.
To take a trip over the Burbank
Ocala Colony is to have a pleasure j
that amounts almost to a vacation.
As one approaches Florida upon
any of the great railroads reaching I
this state, one is at once struck with
the conversation one hears in the j
smoking, dining or sleeping car. This
conversation is almost wholly con
fined to the topic of Florida, and gives
an insight into the real condition ot
the fame of this great state, for these
people come from almost every sec
tion of the North American continent.
Every train carries many men and
women who are going to Florida, and
strange as it may seem, the majority
of them arc routed to Burbank-Ocala
From the worn-out hills of N«J.. Eng- I
land, from the cold and bleak moun
tain camps of the mining districts of
the Rockies, from beautiful California,
from rfyll and snow-laden Canada,
from the cities and from the farms.
Catholic and Jew, college professor
and bricklayer—these are the people
who are settling today in Burbank
Ocala colony. Every race, every re
ligion, every trade and every profes
sion has some man or womi.n who is
a settler at Burbank-Ocala, and who
from this fact, prove that this land
satisfies all people and all classes of
There arc three new townsites in
this colony, places where Chas H. Sieg
and his organization have decided to
build cities. When one sees what
these cities were but a short time
ago, and looks at them when one ar
rives at Burbank-Ocala Colony, one
has an idea of what their appearance
will be six months from today.
The people are moving upon the fer
tile fields of Burbank-Ocala Colony in
large numbers; they are preparing
those fields for the reception of their
first crops: they are building their
homes, and in the wake of these set
tlers is traveling the commerce to
the various lines of business, that de
pend upon an agricultural community
for their existence.
Marion County. Florida, is the ban
ner county of the state. It is the
county which but a few years ago in
competition at Tampa, Florida, with
every county in the state, took first
prize for agricultural and horticultural
Marion County has more fine roads
than any county in the state. It has
local and long distance telephones
upon its farms, and one sees here
more luxury in an hour’s travel by au
tomobile or team than one would be
lieve possible in a farming section.
We must remember in traveling
over Florida, that these people whose
homes we see. and whose fields we
marvel at, make their money and
buiid their homes, not by the man
killing toil of working 160 acres of
ground like is done in the north, but
Florida is the spot where a man is
rich who owns a ten acre farm.
Without the question of a doubt, the
greatest and most delightful portion
of Florida, where pleasure and profit
are wound and inter-wound, is Marion
County, and in the very heart of this
great county is located Burbank-Ocala

comprehensive knowledge of all ques
tions arising in the mind of a man
who contemplates making Florida his
This great book is very expensive,
and it is filled with absolute proof that
tells a story which no man can deny,
and it tells it in the language of com
mon sense.
In an interview with Mr. Sieg re
cently, he made the prediction that
every acre of Burbank-Ocala Colony
would be sold before farmers in the
north were enabled to start plowing.
This means that many thousands of
acres must be sold each and every
week, and that hundreds of settlers
are buying this land every day.
The office of the Burbank-Ocala Col
ony is located at the city of Ocala, in
Marion County, is filled with settlers
and prospective settlers to this col
ony, and the best part of it all is that
these settlers are satisfied. Many of
them are sent to Burbank-Ocala for
the purpose of investigating and mak
ing sure, not only for themselves, but
for their friends, relatives and neigh
bors. and most of these men buy im
mediately after seeing this land for
many people.
To give one some idea of the value
of this property, and how firmly con
vinced the Company is that it will
stand any investigation, the Board of
Directors of the New South Farm &
Home Company have authorized Chas.
H. Sieg to sell thi3 colony land upon
the strict guarantee that if it is not
satisfactory to the purchaser, he may
ask for and receive back every cent
he has paid, together with 6% inter
est, any time before the actual celiv
ery of the deed.
This land is selling at the price of
S25.00 per acre, tipon the terms of
50 cents per acre down, nnd 50 cents
per acre per month until the land is

The Waiter Was Too Smart.
“I ate my breakfast this morning in
a Market street restaurant.” said a
down-town business man, "and some
thing occurred that particularly ap
pealed to my sense of humor. A man
and a woman were seated opposite
me, and the waiter placed a large
plate of biscuits before the two. ‘I
prefer bread,’ said the woman. In a
jiffy the biscuits were whisked away
and replaced with the staff of life. I
noticed a wistful sort of expression on
the man’s face as the biscuits disap
peared, but he made no remark. ‘I
guess she’s the boss of that ranch,’ I
thought, and then the woman turned
and said: ‘I believe the girl thinks we
are together.’ As the waitress came
back to give the couple a check she
was just about to punch the amount of
two meals on one when she looked up
suddenly and asked if they were to
gether. In one breath they said ‘No!’
Well, you should have seen that girl’s
face. She blushed furiously and then
capped the climax by saying: ‘Oh, you
sat there so quiet like, not speakin’.
I thought you were married.’ ”—Phila

Out of the Grand Central station the
other day came a couple the sight of
whom caused citizens who saw them
to admit to themselves that there
might he, after all, some basis of
truth in the “Uncle Josh” jokes of
the allegedly funny papers. The old
man grasped his carpet bag and bulg

up and down the street, his mouth
“There’s a heap o’ sights in New

Pushing the Goods.
A number of drummers were sitting
In a hotel lobby, when one of them be
gan to boast that his firm had the
most number of people pushing its
line of goods.
There was a little argument and
then a drummer who had not had
much to say before suddenly rose and
said: "I’ll bet any man in the house
that my firm has the most number of
people pushing its line of goods!”
"Done!” exclaimed the boastful one
The money was accordingly put up
with a stakeholder, and then the boast
ful drummer asked: “Now, what ts
your firm's line of goods?”
“Baby carriages,” murmured the
quiet man as he took the money and
made for the side door.—Exchange.
