Jacksonville Has Many High
Class Roads to Points
iTrlps to Be Taken Over Them in Au
Comobiles During the Reunion of
Confederates May 6, 7, 8.
Jacksonville, Fla., April.-lt is safe
lo say that hundreds; and possibly
.thousands, of visitors to Jacksonville
. thring the week of the great Reunion
?I Confederate Veterans and Sons of
Veterans, will make the trip from
their homes in automobiles. Numer
ous inquiries have been received from
?H parts of the country concerning
Toad conditions, and esp? ::ially in re
gard to the practicability of reaching
Other points in Florida by automobile
trips from Jacksonville.
For the information of auto caners,
-desirous of bringing their rara to
Jacksonville at the time of the Re
?onion. attention iE called to the fact
that, the city license books show that
Chere are over i:,000 licensed automo
biles in the city of Jacksonville alone,
and during the past winter season
. more than 2,500 motor-driTen vehicles
have passed through Jacksonville ea
route Lo various places on the Florida
peninsula. Unless there were fairly
good roads, leading from Jacksonville
to other pe?ri.ops of Uie State, there

Bural county, of which Jacksonville
Is tie county seat, was amoag the 6ret
-of the Florida counties to issue road
Improvement bonds and to begin the
paving of its highways with vitrified
paving brick aDd concrete. With a
population of only 75,000 in 1909, this
?ounty issued road improvement bonds
that year to the amount of $1,000,000,
lind it was provided that not more
than $250,000 was to be expended in
road construction each year for four
.years. The bonds were sold at a
huudsoine premium and the money
has ali bc-en expended on the rpads of
the county, with a result that this
county new has some of the rory best.
In the South, and these reads are a
joy to the joyrider und to all persons
who ose them.
But this is not ail; for the Board of
County Commissioners ls nt the pres
ent time working up interest in a
proposition to issue from $2,000,000 te
$5,000,000 additional road improve
ment bonds and construe ? "-'
.-,-r> ??' . re?u
way rour hundred feet in width and
twenty miles in length. Here is the
ideal automobile course and it is vis
ited by thousands cf cars every year.
From the city to the seashore the
county has constructed a magnificent
boulevard, paved with vitrified brick
and with concrete for the entire dis
tance. Hundreds of cars traverse this
Atlantic Boulevard, as it is known,
daily, and during the Reunion many
thousands of visitors will make the
trip by auto to the beach. Once on
the seashore they will find much tc
Interest, them. Surf bathing will be
at its best during the Reunion week
and many visitors from interior points,
who have never before hud the oppor
tunity to plunge into the big breakers
of Old Ocean, will find the experience
a novel and delightful one.
From Jacksonville to St Augustine
the distance by auto is SS miles and
the trip is easily made in two hours.
In fact, the record for the trip is one
tour and nine minutes, but that is al
most too fast for a trip to the oldest
city in the United States.
The road from South Jacksonville,
on the opposite side of the majestic
St. Johns river from the Reunion city,
ls paved with shell for nine miles and
the going is good. Then comes t-ix
miles of brick paving over which the
cars fairly skim along. The next four
miles, to the Duval county line, have
not yet'been paved, but a temporary
surface of shavings has been provid
ed. From tho county line to St. Au
gustine, a distance of 18 miles, the
road is not yet paved but shell has
been placed In the wheel ruts and good
time can be made by the average car.
Still another attractive trip, on the
south side of the St. Johns river, is
that to Mandarin, a pretty little vil
lage on tlie banks of the river, about
fifteen miles from the city. This road
jg well paved with shell for the entire
distance and passes, through some
very pretty orango groves, which in
themselves are au attraction to all.
At Mandarin there are a number of
attractive homes, surrounded by pret
ty gardens, groves and farms. This
village is the site of thc former home
of the late Mrs. Harriett Beecher
Stowe, the author of "Uncle Tom's
The city of Jacksonville has sisty
miles or paved streets and contracts
are now outstanding for several addi
tional miles, work on which will start
Immediately after the reunion, as it is
the desire of the city authorities not
to have the streets torn up while the
visitors aro here.
Sight-seeing automobiles are numer
ous in J? olesen ville every winter ?ind
this year several of the 'artie cn rn will
romain over until after the reunion.

Guard Your Children
Against Bowel Trouble
Many children st an early age
become constipated, and frequently
scrious consequences result. Not
being able to reali::c his own con
dition, a child's bowels should bc
constantly watched, and a gentle
laxative given when necessary.
. Dr. Miles Laxative Tablets arc
j especially well adapted to women
j and children. The Sisters of
! Christian Charity, 531 Charles St.,
! Luzerne, Pa., who attend many
I cases of sickness say of them:
"Some limn ago wo bwran using Dr.
' Miles' Laxative Tablets and find that
we like thurn very much. Their act;<>n
j is excellent and wo are grateful for
j having been made acquainted with
! them. We have had f?ood results in
every case and the Sisters are Tory
much pleased." .
Thc form and flavor of any medi
: cine, is very important, no mattrr
i kuiij ?s overcome. The shape of
; the tablets, their appearance and
I candy-like tr.stc at once appeal to
! any child, with the result that they
I are taken without objection.
I The rich chocolate flavor and
absence of other t::ste, make Dr.
Miles' Laxative Tablets the ideal
remedy for children. 3
