A Progressive Mayor.
A correspondent of the Gate City
Chronicle has the following coxupli
mentary words relative to. Mayor 'or
rest Lake, of Sanford, Fla;:
"I have read with interest the en
dorsement of Mayor La1:e contained in
your last issue, and I heartily join you
and your correspondent in the senti
ment expressed. He has probably
made fewer mistakes than most Mayors
make during a first year's experience,
and certainly hasdevoted himself vig
orously and conscientioasl his pub
lic duties, demonstrating a remarkable
degree of executive ability and moral
courage, and has conducted the affairs
of the city, during one of the most
important periods in its history, with
brilliant success. Let hi be renom
inated, of course, and re-elected. Why
not? The moral tone of Sanford has
been raised to a hit h standard and all
its interests, that be could touch or in
fluence, have been proteted and en
hanced under his administration-he
is fearless, able, impartial, and faithful
in the discharge of his duty, the con
fidence of the citizens and the outside
public is established in him and in the
city with him at its head, and what
more can we ask?
"We have just voted bonds, and we
want and need just such confidence to
materially aid in disposing of the
bonds and .in the carrying forward of
the great publice risee in contemp
lation. Mayor Lake tie first Mayor
under whom bonds were ever "carried,"
and much of the sgccesaofar, was due
to his influence and :iesltance .in thle
management of the scheme. Well,now
that he hab helped so materially to get
us into this desirable "scrspe," let ua
hold on to him and make, him help as
through with it. There ,is no sense in
swapping horses when you have just
the one you want."
The testimonials which the mail
brings in every day run' thus: "Dr.
Bull's Cough Syrup cured the baby of
croup." "It cured meof a most distrese
ing cough;" or "it cured my little boy
of sore-throat." "We could. not do

The Plans Adopted for the New Building a
The "Science Hall" on the Collegi
campus will be a neat and substantia
building. It will be built of brick, au(
will stand between the Southern wiu
of the College building and the Alumn
house. The plans show that it will bI
40x70 feet. On the first floor will bo
the College chapel, 30x40 feet. In rew
of the chapel will be the laboratory anc
another room for the use of classe
studying chemistry. On the seconc
floor, there will be a large room iufronI
for the library of the college, and in thu
rear a smaller room for the museum.
A tower with a belfry will grace thq
northwest corner of the building. Thf
stairway to the second floor will bE
under the tower.
The building is the best that can b
built for $5,000, which is the sum pro
posed to be raised for its erection. I1
will be commodious, and afford a con
venient place for the library and th
museum of the college, as well as a
mor commodious chapel, the preseni
one being entirely too small to accom
modate the students now at the col.
is a very desirable plan and one
that will meet the present needs of the
About half of the amount necessary
to erect the building is in hand, and
the standing committee are confidenl
that- the whole amount will be raised
promptly, and they are going forward
with the work.
