"There’s no mistak ing the relationship but the second gen eration has outrun the first.” Folowing her glance 1 beheld a languid looking blonde In the act of saluting a plainly dressed woman whose failed eyes brightened at the sight of her stylish daughter. 1 forgave her everything—the bizarre costume, the cheap willow plume, even the chewing gum—as 1 saw the an swering light In the eye of the home comer. "She's safe as long as she can look at her mother like that," Susie Damn said, turning to me, and I agreed with her. The "Union station," always Interesting, is doubly so these days, as Susie Damn and I found out the morning we were there, for there is such a big increase In travel, people going away for the sum mer, taking advantage of “cheap summer rates." and all that sort of thing, peo ple returning from vacation trips—nearly every “type" in the category of curiosi ties can be seen sooner or later, and af body can spend a most deliciously amus ing hour there at any time. Families being united, porters scurry ing ’round carrying golf sticks and suit cases, with a benevolent air of blessing the universe generally, children chasing;' each other about with delightful aban- j don, and elegant looking travelers, fitted 1 and garbed out in the latest style, all . on exhibition. “I think the fat gentleman in the palm ' beach suit is waiting for his wife who j has probably been In New York spending j his hard earned money for him," Susie j Damn guessed, as she indicated by a nod of the head a conspicuous old “gent" fanning himself with his Panama hat, and for a moment being dazzled by a pret ty bit of feminity rushing into his arms and kissing him loudly upon the cheek. “I'm so glad to get home," she shrilled. "How are the children? Are the (lowers doing nicely? How i.s the vegetable gar den and is the cat still fat and happy? Verily, Susie Damn guessed right the very first time, for it was Mrs. Wifey, peradventure without a doubt. It is easy to "spot" a stranger within our gates on account of his air of inde cision and uncertainty. Dotted in among the vast throngs that go in ami out the gates we see familiar faces—people we know and like, but even so, among the others there is such an tin- i mistakable air of good fellowship that pervades the place that we excused our intellect in the different individuals that make up the throng. We are held spellbound by the account of some returning traveler who is telling about the wonderful delights of the moun tain resort from which she has just re turned, and our interest can hardly be called eavesdropping. "Relieve me, I never had such a good time in all my life,” says the flossy figure in navy blue. “There was something to do every single blessed minute and the nicest men 1 ever saw and just oddles ! of them were there. We played golf all day. danced 'way into the middle of the night, and we had the bestest things to eat—fried chicken and corn on cob, hot rolls, and all sorts of goodies. Tennis, boating. Gee! I hated to come home.” “Don't you wish you knew the name of that summer resort, where all that gran deur abounds?" Susie Damn asked seri ously. "if there was any way of Intro ducing myself to that enthusiastic sum mer resorter, or even to the tanned youth who is with her, I'd do it. Summer re sorts ^pell eternal boredom to me and I'd really like to get the name of one that was worth while, all that the highly colored folders and literature they send out, claim that they are. Most of them TO URGE PASSAGE OF BILL GIVING RELIEF TO FINANCES OF CITY (Continued from Page Five# authorized to increase its rate of tax ation. If the city receives hereafter where now it receives $1. the commis sioners feel certain that the* total sum will be sufficient. The bill provides, too. that the city government shall be oper ated within its Income, and that if more money is expended than is received, thi officials will be subject to legal prose cution. The judiciary committee, before which the municipal bill is pending, granted yesterday at the instance of the cil> the right of appearing before it to At torney Smith. Mr. Smith will explain in detail the provisions of the bill, wil' relate the fact that it was advised by the committee of 100 citizens which carefully investigated the condition of the city, and that the people of Birming ham are highly in favor of the pro visions. The meeting of the local delegation with city authorities Friday will he ex ecutive, although any citizen especially interested will be given the right to appear. The city authorities are cer tain that as soon as the legislature is apprised of the urgent necessity of the bill, it will be enacted into law. TALLADEGA ' Hunk Resource* Given—Overrules mo tion for Rehearing—>l«y Kstnhlish Park Talladega. July 5. — (Cpecial.) The recently published statements of two national banks in Talladega show resources to the amount of $1,331,000. This does not include the state bank located here. One of the last orders made by City Judge Simms before entering on the two months’ vacation of his court was to overrule a motion for a rehearing in the case of Dora Jordan vs. Western Union Telegraph company, a damage suit for failure to deliver a message as to death. The telegraph company had won the suit before ihe jury so that Judge Simms’ action left the com pany still a winner. The court ad journed for two months, beginning July 1. There is a movement on foot to es tablish a park at the Southern pas senger depot for people who have to wait for the coming of the trains. As yet the mater is not in a condition to definitely determine what action will be taken, but it is quite likely that this spot near the depot will be beau tified and used as a park.

They are as tirmly entrenched in our American life as patriotism and the constitution. It's best feature is get ting home, and it Is an amusing phase of the situation to see the happiness that gleams in their faces when they are met at the I’nion station by those they have left behind.” ._i 'In. Thomas Lecture* on Illiteracy. Italian* on Way Here to F.nlNt Sheffield, July 6.— < Special.)—Mrs. E. D. Thomas of Greenville, who is tour ing the state in the interest of the illiteracy campaign, lectured at the First Methodist church, Florence, this afternoon. Mrs. Thomas is an unusually interesting #speaker and Is very cn- * thusiastic over the important subject of illiteracy in the state. A large crowd heard her, many from Sheffield and Tuscumbia being present. ^ Several Italians have been in Shef field p issing through Memphis and oth er points, walking to Birmingham, at which point they will sign enlistment papers and leave thence for the Eu ropean battlefields. One of the Italians fought in the Italian wah of 1911 and 1012 and was severely wounded at Tripoli, but this fact did not seem to deter him in the least in being anxious to get back for another trial of it FARMERS’ INSTITUTE HELD AT EUFAULA Eufanla, July (Special.)—A largely attended farmers’ institute was held here today at the courthouse, being conducted by Dr. C. C. (’ary and other educators from Aubtirn. Farmers were present from all parts of the county, some even coming from neighboring Quitman county, Georgia. The advantages of diversified farming was the chief subject of the day’s i discussion. Much attention was also paid * to live stock and crops, which are little raised in this section. It is expected that , next year will see an even greater diver- \ slfication of crops in Barbour county than last year, as the boll weevil will reach the western part of the county in num bers at that time. Progressive farming along all lines is now being fostered in this county by 11. C. Heath, the newly appointed farm dem onstrator, who is an Auburn man, and has had practical experience on his father’s place near Enterprise. He is meeting with much success in his work here.
