Gainesville and Alachua County Have
Already Planned For Their Part
A committee of three, composed of
Aldermen M. B. Cochrane, W. P. Di
neen and J. C. McCoy was named by
President Merrill, of the city council
last night, following the passaged
a resolution to join with the Board of
(County Commissioners in meeting
painesville and Alachua county half
Way in putting in proper condition
the road between the two capitals of
Alachua and Putnam county.
. This action followed an address by
Dr. A. M. Steen, chairman of the
Beard of County Commissioners, who
pointed out that there is an opportu
nity now to take advantage of state
aid for constructing this link in the
highway which may never come again.
This is the same matter which was
taken up at the last meeting of the
Business Mens' Association when rep
resentatives from Alachua county
made a strong plea for the coopera
tion of Palatka and Putnam county.
As pointed out by Dr. Steen last night
no road that can be built at this time
will be of more benefit to the city
The state road department has evin
ced a great deal of interest in this
link in the highway and is willing to
do its full part in constructing the
road. The route would be by way
Budget Monday Night.
Chairman McNally, of the finance
committee, anounced that the budget
was not quite ready and asked for
an adjournment of council until Mon
day night when the budget will be
submitted for ratification. This was
agreed to. No advance figures on
the budget are available.
Mr. McNally, also asked for more
time in which to prepare a report on
the waterworks purchase, which was
turned over to a special committee,
lie anounced that a reply had been re
ceived to the inquiry made by the
committee to the owners of the old
waterworks, but that there is certain
other data which the committee wish
es to get in hand before making up
its final report.
Just what terms the owners have
ofered has not been made known, but
it is believed to be in the neighbor
nood or t iO.Oou. Under an act pass
ed by the legislature Palatka cannot
bond for more than ?GO,000 for the
purchase of the waterworks, but can
fellow the same procedure as has been
followed in other instances and either
borrow the money needed in addition
to a bond issue, or issue time war
rants. Parking Amendment Passes.
The amendment to the traffic or
dinance, relative to parking of cars
in the public street, was placed on
its second and third reading and pass
ed. This amendment makes it un
lawful to park cars in such manner
that they will obstruct entrances to
garages or to filling stations.
It was the sense of council that no
city engineer is needed for the pres
ent and heads of the various depart
ments will be held responsible for
the working of their departments.
This plan will be followed for several
weeks in the interest of economy.
A vote of thanks was extended to
Alderman Coughlin for the zeal he
has displayed in looking after the
T YORK TO

INVITED HERE TO HELP WITH
CHRISTMAS STAMP SALE.
Is Man MTo Killed Eight Huns, Cap
tured Thirty and Marched Them in
The greatest hero in the late war
is Sergeant Alvin C. York, of Tennes
see, who single handed and alone kill
ed eight Huns and captured over thir
ty and marched them in as prisoners.
. Sergeant York is very much inter
ested in the campaign for the sale of
the Red Cross Christmas Seals and
is Vice Chairman of the campaign in
Tennessee. Those directing the work
in Florida have invited Sergeant York
to visit this state in the interest of
the work, and they feel assured that
he will do so sometime during the
latter part of this month. , Sergeant
York feels a deep interest in the
movement because he appreciates the
work being done against tuberculo
sis and his services are free to make
the drive which takes place December
Ist-lOth a success. His name fame
is known in every household in Am
erica and his popularity has been
strengthened by his extreme modesty.
Should he come to Florida and it
seems now asured, it will be a nota
Governor Roberts, of Tennessee, is
the Chairman of that State and he
has been requested to release Sergeant
York for the Florida visit. The
Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce,
Mayor Martin and other organizations
of Jacksonville have invited Sergeant
York and as soon as it is known that
he will come, extensive preparations
will be made to receive, him with the
honors due America's most distin
guished and most modest hero.

The warm welcome accorded the Palatka Daily News has been most encour
aging to the publishers. It is proof positive that the American people, are
demanding more speed, even in getting the world's news. We print it the
day it happens. The afternoon paper is steadily gaining in publicj favor.
It is distinctly the home paper everywhere.
The Palatka Daily News carries the United Press afternoon service. This
organization serves more afternoon papers than any two news associations
in the country. It is crisp, interesting and reliable. It speaks for itself Ss
it is presented daily in the columns of the Daily News. This servioe will
be increased in number of words as soon as additional facilities for handling
it are received.
Why We Chose The
The publishers chosejto enter the afternoonjfield, in preference to the morn
ing field for reasons that are so obvious that there was no occasion for hesi
tancy. If experience had proven that the morning fields is the most de
sirable in cities the size of Palatka present conditions here would not have
decided the publishers not to enter that field. But the afternoon field is
the field for the advertiser and the reader locally.
In the United States there are two afternoon papers for every morning paper
In Elorida there are nineteen afternoon papers and eleven morning papers.
In'no city is there a morning paper where there isn't an afternoon paper
These figures prove that the demand of advertisers is that'their store news
shall be circulated on the day it is printed and on the day that current news
happenings are chronicled. In large centers of population the morning
papersj depends, to a large" extent, on its general circulation outside
the local field.
Seventy-five per cent of the advertising for local readers in New York and
Chicago is carried by the afternoon papers,
The afternoon paper goes into the home before supper, just when the house
wife is finishing her day's work and when the husband has come home from
his labors. From it is mapped out tomorrow's purchases, as there is no
time in the morning for wife or husband to look over the morniug paper un
til after the first rush of activity incident to the starting of the day.
This is the age of speed and people want the news the day it happens,
why the publishers chose to enter the afternoon field.
