FLORIDA SUMMER UKSORT
FREAKS OF A CYCLOXT
It is strange why many of cur
people will -go north to spend
their summer vacations when there
arc such resorts in easy reach and
in our own state, too, as Amelia
beach. Ouite a number cf our cit
izens arc there now and arc just j
delighted with the place. Among
those summciig there are Mrs.
J. Arcntz and children, Mr. and j
Mrs. O. T. Green and children.

venient bathing apparatus is pro
vided. There is no undertow and
the prettiest bicycling cn the
beach that one ever saw.

the able management of Mrs. M.
J. Bartlett, is all that the heart
could wish. Large, cool rooms,
long, shady verandas, and the best
of Ub'e fare. Nearly all those

people. Amelii beach is about
two miles from Fernandina, with
trains ahd hacks every few min
utes. If you aro going off to spend
the summer, do not go out of the
state to spend your money.

he got a letter that had been car
