The $75,000,000 represents the Federal Government's appropriation to the work of build ing highways in the various states and must be matched, dollar for dol lar, by funds from the state treasu ries, except in state where more than 5 per cent of the area is unappro priated public land. The $75,000,000 appropriated is for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1922, and $25,000,000 of the sum is avail able immediately, the balance be coming available on January 1, 1922, Florida's allotment is $886,825.00, Of the appropriation of $15,000,000 for the improvement of national for est roads $5,000,000 was made avail able for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1922, and $10,000,000 for the fol lowing fiscal year. The federal highway act in a gen eral way resembles the federal aid act of 1916, but contains several new features. Administration of the act by the secretary of agriculture, and .under him the bureau of public roads remains unchanged. Apportionment of the fund to the states is almost the same as in the previous act, the fund being divided into three parts, one part apportion ed according to population, one ac cording to area, and the third ac cording to mileage of rural and star mail routes. A new feature is the stipulation that no state shall re ceive less than one-half of one per cent of the total fund which amounts to $365,625. . This stipulation will increase the amount received by four of the smaller states, Delaware, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Considerable change, however, is made by the act in the manner in which a state may use its allotment. Each state must select a connected road system not exceeding seven, per cent of its road mileage for im provement with federal aid. This system will be divided into two class- where they have been visiting Mrs. es, one of which will be known as rm Club. members of the Wegotem Club Beet today as the guests of Miss it Dkvis, at her home on South i!h street.

Hart in "Cfadle of Courage Inrernstmnal News and a Comedy interstate highways and the other as intercounty highways. The inter state highways must not exceed three sevenths of the system select ed; on them not more than 60 per cent of the state's allotment can be spent without the joint approval of the secretary of agriculture and the state highway department. The in tercounty highways, which consist of the remainder of the system selected will receive the remainder of the state's allotment. Except in states where more than 5 per cent of the area is unappro priated public land, the amount of federal aid received on any projeet must not exceed 50 per ctnt of the estimate cost. In states where more than 5 per cent of the area is unap-pi-opriated public land the 50 per cent allotment is increased by an amount equal to one-half the per centage of unappropriated ' public land in the state. Before any funds can be paid to a state, the state must appropriate money, under the direct control of the state highway department, to match the federal al lotment, and for the maintenance of federal aid highways. What the new appropriation will mean to the country can be judged by the use to which the $270,uuu,uuu previously appropriated has been put according to officials of the United States Department of Agriculture. Practically $200,000,000 of that mon ey has been put to work in projects which are either entirely completed or now under coistructiorL To match this amoun't the states have appropriated $265,000,000.

Impression From a musical, dramatic and his toric point of view the Indian concert at the high school audi torum Mon day night was an unusual treat for Palatkans ! A select and enthusias tic audience' greeted Princess Nado nis, the leader of the company when she introduced herself and each of the three other performers, Morning Star, Wild Flower and her husband, Chief Kanhoa, White Eagle. The program . was well balanced and entirely interesting. It opened with explanatory remarks by Prin cess Nadonis and a plea for better understanding of the American In dian. Her readings from her own books of poems, now being published, were rendered in a rich, vibrant voice and interpreted with wealth of splendidly dramatic gestures. Surely the last poem, called "The Indian," cannot fail to arouse sympathy for the Indian cause in the most indif ferent. It thrilled all who heard it. Very interesting were herv renditions of various tribal melodies. A singer of fine ability and rare personal charm is Miss Maria Morn ing Star of the Aztec tribes. Her selections embraced groups of Cad man, Thurlow Lieurance and several purely Indian melodies. Not the least attractive was a song in her native Spanish tongue "Partjng." She posseses a lyric soprano voice of great sweetness and intense emotion al appeal the kind of voice that plucks the heart strings. Miss Wild Flower of the Ottawa tribes proved herself an especially sympathetic accompanist. It is to be regretted that her skill was greatly handicapped by the condtiion of the piano. But we heard enough to make us wish that the best conditioned piano possible might have been at her disposal. ' Chief White Eagle provided the real and unmistakable Indian flavor, the story-book thrill of childhood. His heroic proportions were enhanc ed by the ancient head-gear 'of edgle feathers and other habiliments pecu liar to a chief of the blood. In his own language we heard Indian leg end and song, interpreted in English by his wife Princess Nadonis. He was joined by the womeij in the Dance of. the Green Corn, the Har vest Dance and the Powwow or Home-coming Festival, all accompa nied by the weird music of the tom tom. The war dance,'' reminiscent of tragic days in our history, caused shudders of excitement. Cjhief White Eagle is not only a foot-light; warrior, but one who can justly claim to have been in the thick of the fight in our 'recent world war. His were the only messengers sent into No-Man's-Land which could not be : French Fur Prices Show Big Declines 1 'Ky AMOClnted 2rfM Paris, Dec. 6 For the three years 1918, ' 1919 ind 1920 enormous profits were realized in the French fur trade but the rise in prices seems to have passed its highest point this year. A Hudson bay otter cloak wheih cost 12,000 francs in April, 1920, can now be bought for 5,000. Rabbit skins which had.reached fancy prices have returned to the normal of before te war. Astrakan and skunks are now only twice their pre-war prices and blue and white' fox from three to four times. Siberian sables and Peruvian chin' chillas alone continue to increase in price, both being rare and much in demand. A sable cloak which cost 80,000 francs in 1913-14 would cost today 500,000. understood by the Germans. An ac quaintance of the battle-line was re newed when Chief White Eagle rec ognized a fellow warrior in the per son of Lew Barstow. They exchange ed the greetings and anecdotes com mon between buddies. , As a whole the program Monday night was an artistic achievement and one that not only gave distinct pleas ure, but had its uplift as well.
