PALATKA DAILY NEWS
THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 1921 5 L' PERSONAL MENTION OF PLEASANT PEOPLE IN COUNTY i CRESCENT CITY NEWS. The News takes pleasure in pub lishing herewith a communication from Hon. B. F. Tillinghast, chair man of the Crescent City branch of the American Red Cross. In self justification we wish to say that the figures on the amount of relief mon ey: contributed in this county were taken from figures published by State Chairman Harkesheimer, of Jack sonville. Mr. Tillinghast says that the Crescent City contributions were sent direct to New York, which may explain why the county did not re ceive credit for them. Following is Mr. Tillinghast's communication: Editor Palatka News: Under the very true heading, "A Duty to Civil ization," the leading editorial appear ing in your issue of the 20th inst. contained some misstatements which I know you would not be willing to hitjte go uncorrected. You say: 11) So far as the News has been able to ascertain no one has been ap pointed to represent the European Relief Council in Putnam county for tilt' collection of funds for the suf ficing millions in Europe. (2) A re poVt from state headquarters shows thiit the county has contributed about $:W to the fund, most of this, if not alj, going from Crescent City. (3) e believe that the apparent apathy hejre is due to the fact that no direct appeal has been made, most of us waiting until our obligation was brought home to us in some dennitfc form. Any one so disposed may act for Putnam county in this emergency caluse, and it is a reflection on the gqod name of the county that has made so many patriotic responses, that some one in or out of authority has not done so. '2. I am not informed and there fore cannot say whether Putnam as a county has contributed $30.00, more or less, to the child-saving fund; but Crescent City has forwarded to Hon. Franklin K. Lane, 42 Broadway, New York, the treasurer of the European Relief Council, the sum of $653.48. Of this total $17.05 was contributed aU' the Christmas Sunday service of the Episcopal church. The Cres cent City branch of the American Red Cross took from its treasury $250.00.. The rest of the $653.48 came in from subscriptions at a mass meeting of the churches and citizens held Sunday evening, Jan. 2, under the auspices of the Red Cross. "3.

The Carlyle Club was entertained yesterday afternoon by Miss Moffett at the home of Col. William Lincoln Crosby. Mr. G. A. Smith, of .Smithtown Branch, L. I., New Yorfl., is the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Coe D. Smith at their home on Prospect street. Mr. Smith says that he visited Crescent City 35 years ago, when he came here with his cousin, Mr. Coe D. Smith, and this is his first visit since that time. He finds many changes and improve ments, but does not think the town has grown as one would naturally ex pect, considering its beauty of loca tion and many natural advantages. Some young men . were down on lower Central avenue the other night and were singing the now familiar song, "How Dry I Am," A lady vis itor here attending the Bible confer ence, and who evidently thought the song frivilous asked Mr. Darby if he knew the name of the song: "That, madam," replied Mr. Darby, "is the Bottle Hymn of the Republic."

HE HAD LEARNED SOMETHING Christmas Incident That Shows Way of a Modern Maid With Her Victim. the Hp was a very nervous young man, but lie was rather nice, and Elsie thought lie was worth encouraging. She nllowed him to take her to tea, she deliberately chucked the slipier In his eye at "Hunt the Slipper," and she gave him a dance or two. Once or twice she sat down under the mis tletoe, but he didn't seem to notice that. At last when they were alone In a corner of a room, she stood long and Insistently under the mistletoe hanging from a curtain pole of the bay window. Then, very nervously, he pecked her face. She, of course, protested mild ly ; but as they seated themselves once more, most respectably on a couple of chairs, she kept the conversation on mistletoe. At length he ventured: "It Is er a nice Christmas custom, hanging up mistletoe, hut I wonder why they al ways hang It over doors, windows or chnndellers?" "Because It's not necessary to have any out on the stairs or In any other dark places," she murmured softly.
