The Atlantic Grocery Co. Palatka, Florida jArmy Officer Describes Animals, Birds, Reptiles of Panama i Canal Jungle. The blank spaces on the worlds map have been dwindling so rapidly that it Is a bit surprising to read of a great wilderness unmapped, un inhabited and practically unknown ialongside one of the great American (thoroughfares. In his account In Nat Jural History, Lieut.-Col. Townsend Jwhelen states that a passage cut from ithe Panama canal some five miles through a tangled second growth of small trees and other vegetation leads to a gigantic wall of verdure, and this 'is the beginning of the primeval jun (gle comprising most of the eastern portion of the Republic of Panama, lind extending about 300 miles in length by DO to 100 miles In width, fin this strange new world one can 'wander unimpeded by thorns and Jcreepers, iu a climate oddly cool and balmy. The vegetation Is most impres sive, even terrifying giant moras, borlgen, cavanlllesia, celbas, rubber and flg rising limbless 100 to 200 feet, iwith tops spreading to shut out the sky, and a lower growth of many (kinds of slender tree ferns and palms, (developed in. senii-dnrkness, that shorten one's view without hindering (progress. Hardly anywhere can one (see more than 50 yards. The jungle is alive with a wonderful bird life, iwhlch is distributed in zones of alti tude on the mountain slopes and lo yally from the ground to the tree tops quail, tlnamou and pheasants being common near the earth's surface, jwrens, humming birds, thrushes and other species, In the low-bush level; .doves, guans. owls and trogons, half .way up, and parrots, parrakeets, ina caws, toucans and cotlngus, under the 'leafy roof. Tapir, deer, peccaries and other mammals, are abundant, though sliy. The many serpents do little harm, the chief dangers being malaria, get ting lost and falling branches and fruits. Difference Between Dawn and Twilight; Ending and Beginning of Phenomenon Twilight is the diffused illumination rr the sky which immediately precedes sunrise at.d fallows sunset. When the sun sets below our horizon, we are in it at once plunged in;o the darkness . of night. There is an intermediate pe riod i f part lei and slowly increasing ilai'kn -s wl;i..h we ' all twilight. It is caused by the reflation of the sunlight by du-t and pi,nir!" of water vapor "i the upper atmosphere. The same I li-ia Mcnon occur- just before sunrise ami. to distinguish it frmn the evening twilight, is called dawn. Pawn begins and twilight ends when 1he sun Is about IS degrees below the horizon, and cins"ipently their duration varies witli the latitude and with the season of the year. The higher the latitude the smaller the angle at which the sun's path meets the horizon, and hence liio longer it takes the sun to sink to n distance of IS degrees below the horizon. In the tropics twilight rarely lasts longer than 30 minutes, while in the latitude of north Scotland it lasts so long that about midsummer there are several nights on which it tills the entire Interval between sunset and sunrise.

WHY Suffertrf From Dementia Praecox ; Live Long j Over 50 per cent of the patients j in the state hospitals of Illinois . or of any other state, for that mat ter are cases of dementia praecox. ! The salient feature of this type of j mental disorder Is a loss of Interest j in the things that serve as spurs to . normal activity desire to get on j in the world, love of home and fnm- ! lly, outside social interests, etc. j Fantastic ideas and bizarre activities i take the place o2 these sane Inter- j ests and the affected Individual i ceases to make the adjustments nec- x essary to retain his place as a mem ber of the family and of society at ! large. He gets out of step with the . mass of his fellows; depends more and more upon his own delusional , resources; contents himself with poorer and poorer ways of doing j things; and in the end, if allowed to j go his own gait, suffers a more or less : profound deterioration. I Accompanying this mental degradu- j tlon there Is no corresponding physi- t cal decay, and, as a result, the prne- j cox patient who enters an institution j at twenty may very well continue to j exist there until he Is seventy. At least 20 per cent of. all commitments ! belong to this group, and, since so few I die and so few recover (possibly 10 per cent) a balance between the in coming and outgoing is not struck un- , til at least half of the entire hospital population consists of this type. This sad statement, says the Mod ern Hospital, is an admission of the ' fact that dementia praecox still re- j mains very much In the realm of the unknown. Since Its cause has not : yet been discovered, it can be treated ; only by those methods which have em- pirically proved to be successful. I STEPPING-STONE TO SUCCESS Why Imagination Mixed With Knowl- j edge Is of Such Value to Human Progress. Imagination is the fount from which springs nil progress. Itefore a great structure can be erected it tiiti -r first take form in some ice's imagination. Without imagination we would not he stilling in steamships, t ravelin:, in train-1. ri.!::,c hi an'.oinol.iles or llyia; : ai"planes. Without Imagination we would bav" Ihi electric lights, no phonographs, no moving pictures or other inventions identified with Kdisoti. the world's ; aster mind in lie- ji'alm of both im agination and invention. Imagination conies usually from Mastery of some subject. The appli cation of painstaking study to one's complete knowledge of a subject sets tin' imaginative forces of the mind into i'.tlvity and. lo, what appears to be a 1. ratal new idea is evolved although 'his Idea, when analyzed, is but the product, the rearrangement, the appli cation of knowledge already possessed. To cultivate Imagination, acquire more and more knowledge of your work. And you cannot give form and sub stance to something of which you know nothing. To aciiuire Imagination, first acquire knowledge, then mix your knowledge villi diligent thought; exercise all the foresight you can command and you 'Ian stand a good chance of develop In:: that species of imagination which Is essential to till pre-eminent success.

This 13th day of Oct, A. D. 1919. 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 public favor. It is distinctly the home paper everywhere. World's Greatest Afternoon Service 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 as it is presented daily in the columns of the Daily News. This service will be increased in number of words as soon as additional facilities for handling it are received. Why We Chose The Afternoon Field The publishers chose to enter the afternoon field, 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 mostjde- 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 except Palatka. ! 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 papers! 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 morning 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.
