Mr. Tribble asked the co little son, of Gainesville, are expected j operation of the Rotary club in se curing a sufficient appropriation with which to get the exhibit together, pointing out the difficulties encoun tered last year when the County i Commissioners appropriated $500 for the exhibit, which was used, in jpart for some other purpose. Mr. Hilliard said that he believed !to properly handle a fair exhibit it would be necessary to have it come through a Board of Trade or similar : organization as it was not Rotary's purpose to take up such matters, but merely to help with them. Frank ' Waymer voiced the same opinion and said that he believed Palatka will certainly go backward if it does not get together with some kind of civic organization which will unite all factions.

Miss Lois Belle Mark of Jack sonville, who has been visiting Mis ses Earnestine and Marie Gladney of as the men who will not attend stand off and throw up every opposition pos sible to any undertaking. He paid a high tribute to Harry Montmollin's service to Palatka and said that he had borne more for the sake of the city than any other man in it. He spoke feelingly of the difficulties any man will encounter as president of a board of trade here, and that the only way to make progress is to save all criticisms for the open meetings of the organization. Harry Montmollin was called on and stated that he recognized the vital importance of a civic organiza tion in Palatka, not only to handle the fair exhibit at once, but a num ber of other matters that aro con stantly coming up. He said he was conscious of the opposition there was to him, but that he had go;e ahead i.nd done what he thought was best for the community, and that self in terest was always a secondary con sideration. He said he had made a rjreat sacrifice in accepting the pre t.'dcncy of the Eusiness Men's Asso ciation, and that whoever takes a simMar position will' have to make the same sacrifice and suffer the same amiyances unless some method can be devised for unifying thj various factions. It was finally decided that the committee which has already been appointed to appear before the county commissioners also take up with the commissioners the matter of an appropriation for the exhibit at the fairs.

NEWSPAPER EDITOR IS LECTURED FOR I TO DIRECT By A.MOelutetl Pr.Mt , Hamilton, Ajla., July 26. W. P. Letson, editor of the Marion County News, was lectured for contempt of court and the trial of Sergeant Ro bert L. Lancaster, charged with com plicity in the lynching of William Baird in Walker county, was indefi nitely postponed today when it was proven by the defense that Judge Wilkinson, special prosecuting offi cer, had prepared notes for a num ber of editorials in the Marion Coun ty Nwes, and that Editor Letson had mailed copies of three issues con taining the articles to every quali fied voter in the county during the three weeks preceding the calling of the case yesterday. The trial ended abruptly after at torneys for the state, including So licitor Pennington, Judge Wilkinson and others had agreed that a fair trial could not be obtained after the sensational developments of the day. A first fight between Judge Wilkin son and uecil Gray, of the defense council, was narrowly averted just as the case ended and after the special prosecutor had admitted on the stand that he prepared "copious notes" used by the local newspaper editor in preparing the .articles. It is improbable that Sergeant Lancaster's case will again be called for several months, neither the state nor the defense being willing to take another step toward trial, it was in dicated tonight. "Skirts" Made Hit Yesterday at Grand "Skirts" which was shown for the first time in Palatka last night at the Grand Theatre proved to be one of the very best comedy hits Manag er Kalbfield has b"oked in a longj time.

The Sunshine Widows are indeed the classiest lot of actresses In the mo vies, and oh boy, they are a scream in their negregees. There are several hundred of them, and every one a beauty. Clyde Cook, the star, furnishes the fun throughout the six reels and he is just as funny, if not funnier, than ever. This picture will be shown again today for the last time in Palatka, and if you did not see it yesterday, don't fail to come today as it is a comedy that will make you forget four tr"ubles.
