NO SUGAR IN SIGHT

Putting Syrup in Coffee
Another day has passed and not
a pound of sugar arrived in Palatka
and the scant store on hand has been
practically exhausted in every home.
Syrup ..is now being used in coffee at
the local cafes and, no doubt, in many
homes. Those so fortunate as to
possess a few ounces of sugar are
conserving t as if it were precious in
Jobbers say there is little chance
of securing sugar in the immedate
future. It was reported here yes
terday that two shiploads had land-
ad in Tampa from Cuba, and a num
ber of dealers wired to find out.
They found out the rumor was untrue.
One of the greatest sufferers from
the famine is the Palatka Bakery,
Mr. Whittaker says that unless he
can get some sugar he will have to
shut down his pie and cak edepart
ment as his supply is exhausted. He
has been in communication with all

STARKE, Fla., Qot( 18. At n
meeting of the trustees of Special
Roach .and Bridge District Nol,
Bradford county, held Wednesday af
ternoon at the office of the Bank of
Starke it was decided to begin at the
earliest practicable date . to begin
grading on the road from tha Clay
county line east of Starke to Raif ord,
and on the road leading - from the
Santa Fe river road to Brooker.
The trustees at this meeting em
ployed G. L. Barnard, at present a di
vision engineer for the State Highway
Department, as supervising engineer
for all road work within the district.
Mr. Barnard will enter upon his du
ties as soon after November 1st as it
is possible for him to be relieved
from his present position. .. First of
all he wUl direct the repair of such
bridges within the district as are now
in bad condition, and look after urgent
road repairs. Wlhen this work is well
in hand he will begin to make the
necessary surveys for the grading of
the roads to Raiford and Brooker. In
the meantime $50,000 worth of the
bonds will be offered for sale and it is
hoped by the trustees thrat every
thing will be in readiness to let the
grading contracts early in January.
The grading of the roads is prelim
inary to the hard-surfacing,, whioh
will be reached just as soon as con
ditions are ripe for this feature of
the work. -"
While the grading is being done by
the trustees on the Raiford and
Prooker roads the State Highway De
partment will be grading the . road
north and south across the county,
and it begins to look as if Bradford
county is soon to be numbered among
the counties that have a system of
frrst-cflass roads. 1 '

General Mitchell criticized the Sig

ed, caused considerable delay in the
development of an efficient air force.

If any country, or section of coun
try could know a year in advance
that the tide of tourist travel would
get most heavily its way, it would be
worth millions to the people of that
country or section.
If any people or ection had a
monopoly of the means of reaching
the possible tourist traveler, for just
one season, that people and section
could ,'retire" after the season's
close and "live happily ever after."
But the tourist traveler himself
does not know where he is going next
season ,or even this season, until
well near to the time for him to
start. Therefore, the wise section

Mcfclwain Denies Reports That He
Forecast a Recession.
NEW YORK, Oot 18. J. F. Mc-
Elwain, President of the Boot and
Shoe Manufacturers' Association, last
night gave out this statement:
'My remarks at the Middle States
Shoe Wholesalers' convention in New
York yesterday have been misquoted
m the papers today.
"The fact is that there has been a
decline of opproximately 20 per cent.
in the price of hides from the high
point reached in August, it, howev
er, must be borne in mind that shoe
prices have never reached the high
peak represented by the August price
of hides, and have in reality been
based on hide values no higher, and
in many cases considerably! lower,
than now prevail.
'Shoe factories have today a lar
ger volume of orders on hand than
can be taken care of during the next
three or four months. During that
period they will require a large quan
tity of hides, leather and other sup
plies. Desirable leather is extreme
ly scarce and cannot be quickly ob
'There is, therefore, no indication
of a recession in the price of shoes
in the near future. It is my opin
ion that shoe prices for Spring will
be no lower than at present."
