Today Miami is celebrating her
twenty-fifth anniversary as a muni
cipality. Togged In Nature's most
alluring tropical creations, wearing
Neptune's tiara and bejewelled with
gems of Progress her comely ensem
ble is legend in the land. She is, alike,
the pride and the envy of her sisters.
She has set at naught all prescribed
laws of municipal growth and ad
vancement. What isi it, Mr. Stoneman,
Mr. Bean, Mr. Sewell and other God
fathers? What makes Miss Miami
so beautiful, so alluring?
The most delicate beauty in the
mind of women is; and ever must be,
an independence of artificial stimu
lants for content. It is not so with
men. The links that bind men to
capitals belongs to the golden chain
of civilization the chain which fas
tens all our destinies to the throne
of Jove. And hence the larger pro
portion of men in which genius is
pre-eminent have preferred to "live
in cities, though some of them have
bequeathed to us the loveliest pic
tures of the rural scenes in which
they declined to dwell.
Is it that circumstances cast upon
Florida's glistening strand at that
' particular point where Miami stands
a larger portion of men of pre-emi-.nence
than in other spots more favor
ed of all that we accept as going to
the making; of a city, or is it that the
spirit f unity in helpful endeavors
kaa been more harmoniously coordi
nated" among the pioneers and their
recruits than elsewhere in Florida?
A few days ao The Herald, editori
ally, warned against the blight of
satiety which has seized upon the
City of the Lost Angels. Drawing on
Waldo Frank's observations in his
"Our America," in which he advances
the opinion that Los Angeles is
"sterile," and "it is complacent. It is
Tesotirccless. And the reason is, in
his mind, there was never anything
deeper in the life of Los Angeles
than the desire, first, to get there,
and to make money," the Herald
looks to the future with the hops
-that Miami will "have gathered untM
itself some of the richness and mel
lowness of Havana, of the old woWd
cities, where people have for so many
centuries learned that living in it
self is a great art, beyond the mere
pursuit of money."
So, we may ask of Miami, what
does she think of herself? Who of
those there who have lived there
through the days of childhood, into
the adolescent age and on the full
blown womanhood among cities with
her who can vision the spirit, the
ambition, the aspirations and deter
minations and their concurrent and
cooperatve influences tending to
progress ?
Today Miami is being advertised.
perhaps, as no other city of eqiu.l
size in the nation is being advert'sod.
But nowhere have we been able to
find in the many splendid brochure.!

Louis Liggett Is
Down to Cushion;
Trustees Named
(By Asaoclated Prraat
Boston, July 27. The personal
fortune of Louis K. Liggett, head of
the United Drug Co., and of Liggett's
International Ltd., and interested,
also, in many other big businesses,
has been seriously depleted, it was
learned today. A formal statement
announced that his affairs had been
placed in the hands of trustees, but
the extent of impairment was nor.
officially made known.
The two day's declnie in the market
pric eof the common stock of the
United Drug Co. was given as the
immediate cause of the action to
conserve his assets for the protec
tion of creditors. His losses, however,
have extended over a year or more
and are understood to have been due
to susrar and other ventures that suf
fered heavily with the collapse of
commidty values and stock prices.
We wish to express our heartfelt
thanks to the many friends and ac
auaintances who have shown such
kindness, sympathy and love to us
during the illness and death of our
husband, father and brother.
