It. was three times as large as it is today. It was in the eye of empire builders. It boasted one of the finest harbors in the world. It was the southern most terminus of a railroad on the eastern seaboard, as well as the gulf coast. " Capital came, saw and in vested - Millions. ere spent a building wrehouses, docks, side tracks elevators and business houses: The community grew, but it grew upon and at the cost of those who were pouring in their cap ital and gave no return. Port Tampa City developed as an auxilliary to Port Tampa and flour ished for a time. But the citizens failed to take advantage of the flood tide. There was no co-operation, no Board of Trade, Chamber of Com merce or similar organization. They all said that nothing cou'.d stop Port Tampa and Port Tampa City. They laughed at Tampa, then a small fishing village, Jacksonville w.; a big country town and Miami wae un- heard of. But even before the boom days of Port Tampa Palatka was the Mecca i for all of those seeking Florida sun-1 shine. . Capital sought expansion j here and through lack of community co-operation went elsewhere. There was opportunity then. There is op portunity now. The greatest oppor tunity lies in bidning into one har monious whole the citizenship. When we will have united as one ; 0n ncc(;unt of this being the last in the city's interests, united unself- , me(.ting in the month, it will be an ishly to do what each of us can, op- ; npcn ()ne am it js cxpe tnat scv. portunity will be waiting again, j cral tcjpics for the good of the order Whole-hearted, whole-souled support wjn conlL, ,, it is bound to be in of a city's civic organizations has foresting and all members attending never done any city or any individ-! will lie assured of a pleasant even ual any injury financially, socially or 1 morally, but there are few instances Immediately after the closing of where it has fai'.ed to accomplish ! the lodev the refreshment committee great things for all concerned.

From what can be gath WHY FIFTY PER CENT? ' , A few das ago the. tax assessors J of the state nu't in Jacksonville and agreed to make assessments on prop- ! erty on a basis of fifty per cent, of the valuation. Further than fixing definitely the pro rata of its taxable value each individual county is to pay into the state treasury, so that aU'will be uniform, nothing was ac eomplisheil, so far we can judge froni reports of the meeting. What we would like to know i why was the basis of assessment fixed at fifty per cent, rather than a hundred percent? There is a cer tain amount of money to be raised, no matter what the basis of assess ment is. If the assessment basis is lowered the millage is raised, and vice versa. The only objection to lowering assessments is the poor showing it make- to the outside world in fixing the wealth of the state, and the bail impression it leaves with a prevailing high mill- age. The assessors er stab at it. ihould make anoth- The home ruh Golden Rule. Ireland needs is the The right of a small nations con sists in what is left. The latest hing in the way of a vi cious circle is "Pay me what thou owest." The striking consumer is doing his best to establish the closed shop in America. The Treasury vaults in Washing ton are a nice safe place to keep our national deficit. One effect of present railroad fares has been to increase the sale of books on travel. , Young ladies who arc artiiced with "nerves" will find that one of the best tonics is dish-water applied to the hands three times a day. Much oT America's distress is oc casioned 'bV the middleman. And even more of it by the meddleman. No mattier how Newberry's case PALATKA PLAYS WINTER PARK FIVE TOMORROW Palatka's strong quintet will stack up against the fast Winter Park bunch tomorrow night on the Elks Club court, the game starting at eight o'clock sharp. The locals, in striving to make this the sixth straight victory on, the home floor, will have to play in top form the en tire game as it is realized that the central Florida five is bringing up an especially strong aggregation of "ti " rs. The many supporters of the Gem City live are predicting a clean cut victory fir them, but the members of the. squad realizes that no game is won until the referee's whistle ter mmates tne struggle, ine line up will be chosen from the following men: Reg Hodge, Kersey, Jarmon, Tilghman, H. Hodge, Bennett, Bell, Livingston, Zart, Bryant and Holden. Manager Woodruff has just receiv ed two challenges from the strongest teams in Jacksonville, namely the Duval High School and the First Christians. Gaines with bith will be arranged at an early date. In play ing these quintets, the "locals will meet the strongest assortment of cagers in the entire state and the fans of Palatka will no dougt see mine of the finest basket ball that has ever been staged in this city. The outcome of these games may mean a chance for a claim on the state championship. Immediately after tomorrow's game the trains of music from the Virginia Jazz Orchestra will start the j first number of the basket ball club's great dance. It is expected that the largest crowd of the season will be at this dance. No one with two sound and serviceable legs can afford to miss this fine chance for a good time. The proceeds will go to the Palatka Basket Ball Club. ST. JOHNS I.OIHiE OF PYTHIANS MEET TONIGHT Chancellor Commander J. L. Saw yer, Vice Chancellor W. A.

Formerly Europe objected to America's splendid isolation, but now it is coming ocr to help enjoy it. When the blue laws are passed, one who blacks his shoes on a Sunday nu:sl be cartful not to annov the sole. When little Jack Horner pulled out a plum, it was a chorus of office seek ers that' shouted "What a good boy am I." Colt hi and wheat farmers can't hope for a better price unless they can persuade the bootleggers to han dle their product. When government begins to inves tigate a man it shows no mercy. It just hounds him from one newspaper column to another. The sinner drings hootch to get that feeling of importance and per fection, but the reformer has it in his natural state. And so there are three million un employed. Well, start a government employment agency and give them all jobs as clerks. When Harding is driven frantic by office seekers, he should think of poor Constantine. Constantine got 98 per cent of the votes. America's left hand raises money to buy food for Europe, and its right hand establishes a tariff to increase the price of the food. The seismograph says there is, an earthquake somewhere all the time, but there is reason to believe that it is merely recording the vacillating policy of statesmen. We strickly guarantee our work and material. Our policy is "no cure no pay." BUICK GARAGE JESS, ONCE HARD BOILED BRUISER, SUPPLICANT NOW t on tu i.

"A right ttbout.race movement In 1921 Is neces- 6ary a tue farmers of the South are to get on safe, ftrm ground again, said H. G. Hastings, President of the great Southeastern Fair. "It looks as if we all went cotton crazy last spring, despite all the dan ger signals flying and the disregard of plain facts as to costs of cotton production. We have repeated our fol lies of 1911 and 1914 and piled up debts based on costly food and grain to be paid for by cotton that is now below cost of production.

Cutting food, grain and forage costs by home production will reduce cot ton costs from one-tlird to one-half. "Plant for an abundance of food, grain and foragA, thus cutting down store bills, and the lowor prices for cotton will not hurt so much. We can not, with European countries so thor oughly disorganized, reasonably expect high prices for cotton for several years and we must make cotton at lower cost, or else quit cotton growing. "Most of us caawet quit cotton, hence the absolute necessity of food, grain and forage planting in 1921 the making on home acrea of every pound of food and grain needed to see us through. "In this food production program take the home vegetable garden seri ously, (live the home partlen a square deal and it will surprise you in the amount of healthful food produced.
