HOWN IN SANFORD lowed to a log'.ca' conclusion. If ev ery county in the state were to adopt the same tlcti:t as threatened by iho For many years we have regarded St. Johns bond of commissioners the liiph cost of fliving wouM be entire- out of reason and prohibitive. Sanford as one of the places in the United States blessed with every natural advantage, but lacking in the essential human equation. Sanford enjoys nearly every natural advan tage that Palatka does, and some There is no longer any narrow see that Palatka does not enjoy.

Palatka, Florida, June 20, 1921. R. J. HANCOCK, Clerk. 6-21-28 and 7-6 liemer and rneaper printing wit labnr saving devices at the New CLASSIFIED ADS have needed much in common. Like Palatka, however, Sanford is having a revolution a revolution of the spirit. Palatka is the center of the early potato industry; Sanford is the Cel ery City; Palatka is the transporta tion center of the state, while San ford is so close by with an insignifi cant water rate that it enjoys many of the advantages that Pnlatka does. Both are producing and distributing centers and it is with generous spirit that Palatka views the evidence of progress narrated each day n The Herald. The more recent of these is the construction of a five story otf.ee budding bv the First National Iank, the recent completion of two new ho lds and plans on foot ior a third new one to be one of the lian tcm est in the state, with a wonderful frontage o Lake George. Only twenty miles sepri'le San ford from Orlando, yet Orlando has outstriped her sister city with half the natural advantages. Orlando had the spirit which was slow to awake in Sanford. Orlando adver tised, welcomed the stranger, made the tourist comfortable and happy and pulled together. Orlando put in up-to-date, stores, advertised and Sanford people went there to trade. Sanford waited for the crops to grow and prayed for good market pricee and overlooked the great tide of homeseekers coming into the state, and whose final location was depend ent in ninety- cases out of a hundred on printed matter. But it is different now, Sanford bankers have seen a star. Vision has come to the merchants and busl ness men. Local enterprises are re- ceiving encouragement at home" and we doubt not that before long San ford will realize that in its daily newspaper, long struggling to keep its head above water, it has an asset that may not be paying dividends to its promoters, but is making hand some returns to the community. Business is learning that money paid for advertising in the local pa per may not bring them four-fofd return by the next mail, but that it contributes to the indirect benefits every community derives from hav ing its progressiveness and industry indexed by the paper, it supports. We rejoice in Sanford's progress and feel sure that Palatka has the good wishes of her sister city the bright pendant on the tiara of the St. Johns. We can't help wondering why no body has tried to go over Niagari Falls in a Ford. They call it a monarchy, but it is King George the Fifth and Lloyd George the Four-fifths. It is also worthy of note that the ultimate consumer pays the fines of the bootlegger. If the tomestone has nothing on it except the word pedestrian, you know the whole story. The world yet hungers for a movie of a dentist drilling a hole in one of his own teeth. There are a lot of Americans mag nanimous enough to forgive every wrong Germany did France. Adam threw away a good thing, but think what he might have done if his name had been Adamsky. It is an easy matter to tell when some men are lying. They are lying whenever they are talking. Our own theory is that when a car is driven at that speed the water in the radiator boils with indignation. A few years ago the story contain ing the word "damn" was a wild and woolly thriller; but now it 'is a socie ty novel.

Clerk. 6-21-28 and 7-5 The reason the modern young man doesn't get down on his knees to pro pose is because the girl is sitting on them. Man is naturally an optimist.

CLOSING THE HIGHWAY St. Johns county has notified the state road department that unless fi nancial aid for the construction of throe foot berms on each side of the St. Johns county road from New Augustine to the Flakier county line is forthcoming in accordance with a promise made in February 1920, that St. Johns county will establish three toll gates, one at the north end of the road, out at the south and one at tlr.' west, and charge tolls for travel over the road at the rate of one cent per mile. We are not informed as to the 1 legal rights of the county to take j any such step. If the law empowers ; the commissioners of a:'.v county to j ose highways and chartro tolis it is a fatal defect in 'ho state ;a.', art! ' sht.uld be reminded at the earliest ' possible moment. But we take no serious stock in this threat. St. Johns county cannot afford to take any such drastic ac tion. It would mean a fatal diver sion of traffic from St. Augustine from Jacksonville south by way of Green Cove Springs, which is, af'er all, the logical route, if it were not for the miseraole condition of thi r ird.
