FLORIDA IS PLAYGROU MILLION WEARY OF WINTER [Special Editorial Correspondence.] Florence Villa. Fla., March 10, 1916. —Florida is the playground this winter of more than a million nonresidents who have come to this sunny and fragrant peninsula for rest and rec reation. Hotels are crowded as never before and Pennsylvania lias a large repre sentation at every resort. Harrisburg is frequently noted on the hotel regis ters and everywhere its reputation as a wide-awake and modern city has preceded its representatives. Too bad that we could not also have our base ball club at one of the famous Flor ida training camps. But we must be patient. Hotels and baseball clubs are not always for the cities that deserve them most.

Groat Day Coming; ! Good old Pennsylvania has been a long time getting awake on the good j roads question, but the thousands of I New Englanders who are hibernating 1 under the balmy skies of this grape ! fruit and orange haven of rest realize I that the opening ol' the mountains and valleys of Pennsylvania to the tour ists will mean the diversion of millions of dollars that have annually gone j into the coffers of these same New j Englanders. Governor Brumbaugh is lat his best when he is preaching the | gospel of Pennsylvania with a big P. ! Every citizen of the State should be shouting 'Amen!" at frequent inter vals. As for Harrisburg, it must do its part in tirst providing a hotel ot' the right sort. Many tourists have already put me to confusion by asking regard ing the hotel facilities of my own cit> and I'm growing weary side-stepping. But, fellow citizens, we must have that hotel of our dreams. Harrisburg cannot hope to maintain its place In the sun without the big invitation to the traveler and pleasure-seeker which has its best expression in a hotel that will visualize the spirit of the com munity. O, ye men and women, sit ting in the Valley of the Susquehanna and in its chief city, come forth and give unto John Harris that which is his due! Echo of Celebration Among the guests at this Villa is a daughter of Governor Pollock, who speaks with enthusiasm of the recent municipal improvements at. Harris burg, referring with particular gratifi cation to t.he splendid River Front treatment. She happoned to be a guest at the Senate Hotel during the municipal celebration last September and was a spectator of the remarkable parade of school children which was the most impressive spectacle she ever had the pleasure of witnessing. That wonderful procession will not soon fade from the memory of those who were privileged to see it. The tramp of these children's feet is heard in this distant corner of the land of the free. His days of leisure are being given by President Herman, of the City Planning Commission, to a study of the home problems and his relaxa tion will certainly inure to the bene fit of the city he loves. His vision has full play. E. J. S. Beautiful Fittings of Bakery a Feature The old saying "well begun is half done" is exemplified by the fine be ginning made by the Standard Baking j Company in equipping the store which has now opened its doors to the pub lic. All of the wall fixtures, show cases, and counters were especially designed and constructed for this bakery by the firm of Jaburg Brothers, New- York, and represent an advanced type in fixture construction and design. They are beautiful in appearance, j and strictly in keeping with all the other sanitary features of the bake- Ishop and store for they have been ; planned particularly with this end in | view. : Customers of the Standard Baking Company can know that at all times l the baked goods received by them di ! rect from these protecting tixtures and cases will be delivered with the full j flavor, freshness, and excellence which they possessed the moment they were i drawn from the oven. The bread dis play cases which are to be distributed among the grocers were also supplied by Jaburg Brothers, and the three barrel "New Era" dough-mixer cap able of mixing a thousand pounds of ! dough at one time was purchased from | Jaburg Brothers. ALASKA'S FRINGE OF SUBMERGED MOUNTAINS Have you any idea of the extent of the Alaska coast line? The shores of the territory are washed by three grea.t oceans. These are the Arctic Ocean on the north, Bering Sea on the west, and the Pacitlc on the south. The Aleutian Islands, off the Alaska Peninsula, are separated from each other and the mainland by a network of rocky straits, and much of the southwestern and southeastern Alaska ,is made up of mountainous islands jthat have rocks of all shapes and sizes. The islands are really the tops of mountains half lost in the waters. They rise in spires and cathedrals, some of which are thousands of feet above the water and others hidden be neath it, lying there concealed and ready to rip open the hulls of ships as the iceberg ripped the Titanic. The extent of the Alaska coast, with its windings, surpasses that of the United States proper. It is greater than that of all our States on the Pacific from Puget Sound to the boundary of Mexico, added to that of our States, on the Atlantic including the Gulf. All told, it is more than 20,000 miles long, or longer than the distance around the world at the Equator, and, in proportion to Its length, it has perhaps more dangers than any other coast line on earth. Nevertheless, not one-half of it has yet been sounded by the coast survey vessels, and more than half of the general coast line is not marked by lights or by any aids to navigation.

Progressive Deelares For Adoption of Swiss System Special to the Telegraph Providence. R. 1., Mar. IS.—Everett Colby, the New Jersey Progressive leader, speaking before the students of Brown University recently on the "Issues of the Coming Presidential Campaign," attacked "the fallacies of the pacifists," and declared for the ultimate adoption of a system of com pulsory military service like that of Switzerland. As a second issue he urged that the United States should repudiate its traditional policy of remaining aloof from the affairs of European states and enter upon a vigorous foreign pol icy to enforce obedience to interna tional law whenever and wherever violated. As a signatory to the Hague I I / f I / I lA S. Beardsley \ Architect and Engineer 38 W. 32nd Street, New York I . A'ch'tect For the " ~~ New Plant of the StandardßakingCo. ■ I. ' * ' \ I Convention of 1899, the duty of our j government when the neutrality of I Belgium was violated was clear. "When the German minister at j Brussels notified the Belgian foreign ' office on the second day of August, 1914, that his government would feel | keen regret if Belgium should regard i as an act of hostility against herself ! the fact that the measures of the ! enemies of Germany obliged her on | her part, to violate Belgian territory, ' the Government of the United States should have notified the German Gov ernment that upon the violation of Belgian neutrality it would imme i diately sever diplomatic relations, j deny postal facilities to her mail and j that the economic and armed forces I of the United States would be moved \ against her with determination and > vigor in defense of the empire of the 1 law. And it is my honest opinion that | if that course had been pursued Eng -1 land and the neutral governments would have followed our example, the war would have been averted and the Declaration of Paris and the Hague Conventions made effective instru | ments for the preservation of peace I for all time to come. I "What the government actually did j was not only to remain silent when j Belgium was outraged, but after the Lmsitania was destroyed, carry on a j diplomatic correspondence with Ger- I many couched in the phraseology of courtesy, respect and friendship to which only governments that live in honor are entitled. What judgment the American people will render upon this phase of the Wilson administra tion I do not attempt to prophesy." FISH THAT TRAVEIJ OX LAND That certain species of fish are able actually to flop over the land is the remarkable discovery of a Johns Hop kins professor, according to the Popu lar Science Monthly. In the course of his investigations the professor noticed that such tish as minnows are often found in the little temporary pools that are left in the sand by the re treating tide. If the minnows are so unwary as to be caught when the en trance is blocked, they actually leave the water and flop over the sand to the sea. The professor lias often seen scores and scores of these tish leave large pools and travel over sand bars more than twelve feet wide and a half a foot high. A remarkable feature about this discovery is that the fish never take the wrong direction for any great distance. When tish travel on land, the professor asserts, they spring snakes or kangaroos by sudden bends of the body. Although in its fall the fish may lind its head turned the wrong way, it nevertheless makes its next leap in the proper direction. These researches raise the question: Is there some mental machinery at work in the tissues of fish, which majf be instinct, which may be sense, and which may be something allied to memory ? Weast Had Store For Years Where Bakery Now Stands In a building as large and attrac tive as the one of the Standard Bak ing Company, glass enters largely in to the construction, flooding every nook with light. This flood of light reflecting on the white paint through out the interior of the building makes every room as bright as though rays of sunshine were everywher inevl dence. The installation of the glass was made by G. B. Weast, of 1018 Market street who for thirty years has been, in business in the neighborhood of the new bakery. For sixteen years Mr. Weast was the ihc tinning and spouting business. This was where the Reading depot now stands. For seven years he was located where tho new bakery now stands, moving away from there to his present location about seven years ago. At this loca tion he carries a complete line of hard ware, paints, glass, tools and l>uild crs' hardware.
