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,

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

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

Without Imagination we would bav"

; 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.

Anton Heini, deceased.
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.
