Filled with pep and harmony from
start to finish, the community sing
conducted by Palatka Community Ser
vice last night on the court house
lawn was a big success. A large crowd
gathered, w-Jth special reservation
for the children and Rotarians. The
audience was ushered to seats by
Girl Scouts, dressed in their white
The list of songs used was typical
of all community sings. J. E. John
son opened the entertainment by
leading in "America". This was fol
lowed with more patriotic songs led
by Mr. Teeters. Then came that fam
ous old song. "My Bonny Lies Over
the Ocean", and the way they sang
"Bring Back My Bonny to Me" would
surely think that Bonny was "Over
the Ocean'' to stay.
A number of folk songs followed,
led by Mr- Bennett. 'Swannee River"
and "Old Black Joe" were the favor
ites as usual.
Next on the program were some
special songs sung by the Girl Scouts.
The Scouts marched out in double
formation and made a very pretty
spectacle dressed in their costumes.
They sang "School Days" that has
made such a hit here in Palatka, also
"Let the Rest of the World Go By".
' Everybody joined in the chorus.

ported to Deputy Livingston on Sun
day about noon and he immediatetly
got on the job, began running down
clues and soon had a negro man un
der arrest, who fitted the details as
they had been given him. Deputy
Livingston says that the footprints
of the man correspond to those which
were found around the burglarized
Upon further investigation, it was
found that the negro under arrest has
a very bad record, having just finish
ed serving an eighteen months' sen
tence on the county gang of Dade
County. The negro gives his name as
Cledo Sanders. The evidence against
him is not sufficient to send him up
for burglary, so he is being held on
a charge of vagrancy.

The Palatka Checker Club un
der the auspices of Community Ser
vice had their first meeting at the
fire house last night. While there were
not many of the fans out, there was
a great deal of enthusiasm and plans
were made for the ensuing months.

take advantage of this chance to get
some real comnetition. The club will
pep songs were sung including thatjmeet Tuesday starting next

. Ferrell. This august body proceeded
to sing. "Today is Monday", that
"slumgullion" army song. It was
indeed rurprh'ng how these men for
got their dignity in public. "I'm a

followed by that typically Rotarian
song snoo r ly uon i coiner Me i names to Mr.
All these somrs were given a hearty
round of applause.
The sing was bruught to a close
with "Dixie".
A fine orchestra helped out con
siderably last night and deserves great
credit. The personnel of the orches
tra was Mrs. Mann and Miss Aloe
Everton, accompanists, Miss Grace
Urie. Lew Barstow, Mark Shaw and
Carl Alderman. It is hoped that this
Splendid orchestra can lend their vol-1
unteer services at all the future sings!

wards ivakinc this community sing
a success. It is intersling to know;
that these sinu"? are contageous and1
Mr. Teeters has announced that

Patrolman I. E. Fennell, who re
cently put a stop to the burglaries
being committeed in Palatka by
shooting an escaped convict who con
fessed that he had burglarious inten
tions, will tonight be nominated by
Mayor Fearnside to be the next Chief
of Police of Palatka. His confirma
tion by the council, if the usual pre
cedent is followed, will follow.
It was stated yesterday that an ef
fort will be made to override the nomi
nation of the Mayor and that the
names of some dark horses will be
submitted to council- It is not be-
lived, however, that council will vio
late the precedent, especially in view
of the splendid record that Officer
Fennell has made, not only as a mem
ber of the police force, but as a depu
ty sheriff for three years.
It was rumored yesterday that Po
liceman Barber and Acting Chief W.
G. Terry will be applicants for the
liposition, also but this could not be
confired last night.
The special park committee ap
pointed by council will also make its
report, and the special committee ap
pointed by the Rotary club to coop
erate with council in this important
matter will be present to urge the
purchase of the Burt property locat
ed south of Carr street.

at his home Saturday afternoon while
he went out to a frolic and when he
got back the watch was gone as were
the sixteen dollars. His mother, with
whom he was staying, said that she
thought Williams was the guilty par
ty. After the police were notified, they
began to keep a watch out for Doc
and on Sunday afternoon, Chief of
Police Terry and Deputies Chpinon
and Dyal went out to the house where
Doc was stopping and when he swir
tnem coming, he jumped and ran
Mr. Dyal was almost too ouick for
him and when Doc started down the
back stairs of the house, M. Dyal was
the ahead of him. When arrested the
colored "gemmin" had no watch on
his person but it was found upstairs
in the bathroom behind the bath tub.
He says that he just put it there as
he was tired of carrying it. He was
bound over to October term of court,
at which time he will have a little

dience last evening at the Grand
theater where it opened today. Miss
Clayton plays the most unusual film
heroine seen in many moons. Saved
from death as an infant by an old
Malay woman, the daughter of a
wealthy English widow living near
the Kimberley diamond mines grows
into womanhood imbued by the Ma
lay with an insatiable craving for
bright stones. This leads her into a
diamond smuggling scheme, in which
she is the accomplice of a sinister
jeyeler. But romance enters her life
and, after exciting adventures, she is
freed from the Malay's influence and
becomes her real self.
"Sins of Rosanne" attracts by the
unusual character of its story and by
the sterling work of Miss Clayton in
the heroine's role. The cast also in
cludes Jack Holt and Fred Maiatestn.
