We all w n 9:45 Blake, 11 :X TUG DAY TO BE OBSERVED HERE OH NEXT TUESDAY Next Tuesday is Flag Day, a Na tional holiday. This is one day in the vonr when the whole country is asked to pay some special attention to the flag. Heretofore, only a lew com munities have bothered themselves to devote some time during that day in onecinl exercises suitable for this occasion. The American public seems to have forgotten what this wonder ful flag stands for, and few can in telligently answer questions regard ing the history of the flag. The Elks have pledged themselves all over this country to observe this day in an appropriate manner. More organizations should do likewise. It is the purpose of Palatka Community Service in conjunction with the local Elks to present a special service next Tuesday and an earnest apeal is made to all to respond willingly to the call to make this affair a success. All the merchants are being asked to decorate their places of business with flags and bunting. Everyone who owns a car is asked to fly a small flag that day, and private residences are also requested to do likewise. An attractive proflram tyi being! planned for the evening of Flag Day and will be held on the court house lawn. A patriotic sing is in order with special attractions of a patrio tic nature. The program will be an nounced later. Regulations for Flying the Flag The flag should not be raised be fore sunrise and should be lowered before sunset. In placing the flag at half mast, it should be raised to full mast and then lowered to half mast. It should again be raised to full mast before lowering- The flag should never be festooned or draped. It should always be hung flat. When it is hung against the wall, the union should be in the up per left corner if the stripes are horizontal and in the upper right hand corner if they are vertical. Sometimes when flags are hung across the street it is necessary to hang .them East or West, or North or South instead of right or left. When the flag is hung across a North or South street, the Union should be toward the East and when hung across an East or West street, it should be toward the North. When the flags of two or more na tions are displayed together they should be hung at the same level but on different staffs or halyards. In the United States, when the American Flag is carried with two other flags, it should be in the ccn tere. Also when the American flag is hung against the wall with one other flag it should be at the specta tors right, and in the middle of it if one of three. - When the flag is flown upside down it is a signal of distress and when flown at half mast it is a sign of mourning. On Memorial Day, May 30, the flag should be flown at half mast until noon and then raised to full mast for the rest of the day. Written by MARGARET BENBOW. ST.

This picture, from the book by James Oliver Curwood, author of "Back to God's Country", will be shown 'at the Grand Theatre on Monday. Shan Tung, the Chinese, is a prince in disguise. Driven from his own country by political factions, he set tles in Northwes Canada on the edge of civilization, where he keeps an opium den and traffics in vice. And Shan Tung, because of his wealth is a power in the community. He falls in love with a beautiful white girl and demands that shemarryhim. She loaths him and is horrified. Yet he holds a strange spell over her and she apparently is powerless to cope with his will. She annuals, t. oan officer of the Royal Mounted to help her free hcr 'self from his influence, but she with holds some secret from him, evr lently fearing to reveal it. The Chinese is getting more and more of a hold on her when the of ficer of police visits the den on Shan Tung's command. And Shan Tung openly demands that he be a party to the deliverance of the white girl to him. But the officer is not the craven Shan Tung thought. There is a ter rible battle in the opium den, which is finally set afire and burned. What happens to this officer and the white girl is something you will want to see.
