RESOLUTIONS. East year some of us mark our y higher resolves on that day which sees the beginning of a new period narked by January 1. No doubt ' yesterday brought its full. quota of those high resolves, some made wnimsical contemplation of an un- profitable year behind, and some made in the spirit through which re solves bring us to realizations worth while. We should not be too slow in breaking a sinful custom. A quick, courageous resolution is better htan a gradual deliberation. Hence we sot the day and the hour, and in such ' a combat he is the bravest soldier who lays about him without fear or r wit. Wit pelads, fear disheartens. He that would kill. Hydra had bet ter strike off one neck than five beads. Fell the tree and the ' branches are soon cut off. . Resolution is necessary to guard us against dejection, for the world W(U beat that man whom fortune buffets, and unless by this he can ward off the blows he will be sure . to feel the greatest burden in his own mind.' 'A. wise man make stroubles less "by; fortutude, but to a fool it becomes heavier by stooping to it. If we have "the resolution to hold fast in OUT hour of trial' from this " very firmnfss itself serenely soon, returns to the mind, which always feels satisfaction in acting conform- . ably to dutyi THANK .YOU, COL.

Naerly all feminine traits a charming- except those wou find in a nice little man who uses perfume. When the wire sizzles like that you can't tell whether it is a static con dition or central chewing gum. Some peoplo get ahead, and some can't resist the temptation to 'buy a thing taat is only one dollar down. Still, it must be confessed that the yellow peril was never quite so yel low as those who were- Alarmed about it. In this glorious country, every man has a chance to get rich enough to write a book about the blessings of poverty. Disarmament is a feather in Un cle Sam's "cap; but let the world un derstand, please, that it isn't white feather. We harten to inform the New Year taht fhe general mess of things isn't throni-.

To make the lesson doubly effec tive, it might be a good idea to print Body Fou ndNear JaxMay Be That of East Palatkan (By Aaacclatedl Preaat St. Augustine, Jan. 2. Records irjVthe office of Florida East Coast railroad in the city and ifnormation from E, JB. Kleppler, foreman of bridge gang No. 7 at East Palatka and Taylor Creek, may lead to the identification of the body of the murdered man found near St Nich olas, a few miles on the beach road out of Jacksonville- last Friday. . The body was found by a negro, Henry Canada, under a small bridge over a shallow creek with two bullet holes ira the man's chest and two fn his head. A laundry mark SI. T. was found on . the man's clothing and j corresponded to a tattoo mark on his body. v After reading the description of the man Foreman Kleppler . wrote the sheriff of Duval county saying that it corresponded with the de scription of a man named Herman.' Johnson who worked on ..his '.' road gang under the supervision of E. K. Barrett, superintendent of bridges on the Florida East Coast railroad, After telephonic advice from Jack sonville, a search of the records at the local Florida East oCast rail ways office showed a complete de scription of Herman Johnson; also the fact that he was discharged on December 15. His father, Herman Johnson, Sr., lives in Washington, D. C. Herman Johnson was 24 years of age, weighed 155 pounds, was of fair complexion, had brown hair and Irown eyes.1 He was unmarried and had no dependents. This murder preceded the finding of a young man believed to have been W. M. Allison, of Columbus, Ohio, near the old Orange Park road on Tuesday. The condition and lo cation of the body was similar to the first murder. Aaroplanes Make Too Much Noise for the Tourists St Petersburg, Jan. 2. Mayor Pulver has written a letter to local aviators requesting them not to fly oh such a course that the noise of the motors will ' disturb the winter visitors gathered in Williams park to pitch horseshoes, play roque, checkers and chess, listen to the band concerts and otherwise pass the time away. The mayor says the roar of the airplanes has been especially annoy ing. Speakers are heard with diffi culty and the band concerts are al most drowned out. "It would please your mayor if you would kindly change the course of your machine m the afternoon so that' it would not interfere with Williams : Park, the tourists' playground," the letter concluded. "You know, the tourist is our stock in trade, and I believe that you want to do alf you can to please the tourists." ' VISITORS AT LIBRARY. During th past month there were 1,118 visitors to the Palatka library, 1,318 books and 219 magazines cir culated, a marked increase over De cember of last year, . when there 720 visitors, 707 books aid 85 maga zines circulated. a small portrait of receipts. a crutch on tax Turning up your coat collar doesn't realty kejsp you warmer, but t serves to hide 'the tie the wife gave you for Christmas.

BILLY BURKE AT GRAND. It has been such a long time since Billie Burke has hada good "picture that when one does present . itself with plenty of -sparkle and permits her a chance to assert her person ality th offering should be -given due credit. It is a will-o'-the-wisp story that is featured here at the Grand tomorrow a story which despite its light substance somehow reaches out, and entertains. The star looks like herself again in the picture and she; scores in ner own aisuncuve way. it is quite an achievement for Edward Dillon, the director. . He has taken a thin rtlnti on the surface and ex- tended it, supplying incident here and there, with the result it is kept fully nourished to the finish. There is verv little evidence of naddinir. so natural are the sequences and so spontaneous the comsdy. . ' . ' While it isn't a picture which fur nishes laughter, still the raucous laugh isn't striven for, if one may judge from the subtleties of plot and characterization. A story of a cho rus girl of a garrulous dispositoin the director has painted her life back stage with considerable color. He has used a set reproduced from the Follis to introduce his plot and de velop his romance without losing the thread. For contrast a family of co lonial ancestry is introduced a fam-j ily "withering on the stalk" for lack of romance. ' A bald-headed member j oecomes enamoured with the gay chorine and lugs her out to the" manor to meet the approval of his old .maid sister. . Thus begins the education of Elizabeth. While she is learning her p'g and q's of deportment, she is subtly teaching her associates . the art of putting "pep" into hteir con duct and manner of dress. He . fi ance's brother, a book worm, attracts her and during the absence of the , bald-headed one she finds it conven ient to become hopelessly old-fashioned so that he will break the en gagement. And so Elizabeth gets an ducation, finds the man of her heart and revolutionizes the household. OLD SANTA VISITS LEPER. (Br Associated Pn-aa.1 Tampa, Jan. 2. Santa Claus was generous Sunday to Brack . Lowe, who because he is afflicted with lep rosy, lives by himself in a lonely cabin on the banks of the Hillsbor ough river, near here. Lowe de scibed it as the haprpiest Christmas of his life, for 'scores of Tampans remembered him m his loneliness. The one thing which Lowe prob ably appreciated more than anything else was a graphophone and 35 rec ords, for when it was delivered to him he dropped on his knees and, with tears streaming down his face, thanked Cod 'and called down bless ings on the one who had given it to him. For years he has wanted one, he said, but never expected to get it. "Let B. A, B. DO IT. NOTICE. TAXPAYERS.
