MA Mcn't ,Qlft Stor Complete" 203-211 South Palafox Street Considerable excitement prevailed at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon when a little girl, the daughter of Mr: and Mr. P. Schambeau, residing at the corner of Eleventh avenue and Jackson street, was struck by a bi cycle, said to have been ridden by a half-grown negro boy, and painfully, although not dangerously, hurt. The child was hurriedly conveyed to a physician's office; where an exam ination was made, and it was found that the injuries were not of a seri ous nature. Quite a number quickly gathered at the corner of Palafox and Romana streets, where the accident occurred, and Officer Way, who was patrolling the beat, hurried i to the scene. A negro youth t who' gave his name as owers, and who was pointed out by citizens as the one who was riding the wheel when it struck the child, was arrested and charges with reek- ess riding. There was some doubt a. a as to wnetner tne ngni negro was caught, and Mr. Schambeau, the father of the 'child, told the police that he did not want to prosecute the negro, even if he was the one who was on the wheel, when the child was hurt. He said he had been .Informed that it was not entirely the fault of the bicyclist, but that the child was dodging an auto when she was re ported to have run in front of the approaching bicycle. .Upon that as sertion, the negro was released from custody. ;.

Chairmen of all standing commit tees of the Florida Centennial Asso ciation of Pensacola, were yesterday forwarded a notf, officially informing them of their respective appointments as chairmen of the said committees, and in notes to the several chairmen were included the personnel of each committee. This is expected to create desired interest in- committee work, and some activity is expected by the next meeting of the body.1, , The chairmen of each committee win get together with his . respective co workers at the earliest convenient date, it is expected, and organize. Plans which may be thought the best to be. followed to further the centen nial ideas, will be, discussed, and it is possible that every committee chair man will be able to report some prog ress at recurring meetings of the pa rent body. It is believed that once the commit tees are thoroughly organized, tne chairmen will get together, with the ways and means committee and frame plans for the boosting of the exposi tion itself just as much as possible. Once the committees are in good working order, the publicity commit tee will be among the most popular of the several bodies,' for that com mittee expects to have, a lot of suit able stationery printed and let the world know that Pensacola is going after the biggest thing it has ever at tempted, but is going to land .it and handle it, all the same.

MOST OF FT AS TAXES OF THE L. & N. County "Treasurer Joel Frater yes terday deposited to the county's credit, the sum of about $32,000, of which all but a couple of thousand dollars rep resented the payment of taxes of the Louisville. &, Nashville railroad com' pany. A few days prior to this, or. during the past' week, taxes amounting to $9,000, were paid by the G. F. & A. railroad, and were turned over to the county treasurer, who in turn deposit ed the funds to the county's credit. .There are several other large sums due and as yet unpaid, the county, it was stated yesterday, and some big deposits are probable during the next few days if the expected payments are made. Practically all saloons - have paid their respective licenses, and two new ones, which are expected to open for the Christmas trade, are expected to pay up before many days. TON FEED MI FAMILIES WILL PROVIDE A NUMBER OF CHRISTMAS , DINNERS FOR POOR WHO WOULD OTHER WISE BE UNPROVIDED FOR. In .keeping 'with their annual cua torn, the Salvation Army is now so liciting funds for the purpose of pro viding many poor , families with Christmas dinners, and . the "boiling pot" which the army has stationed about on prominent streets is a re minder that any contribution how ever small is welcomed. No ques tions are asked; all you have to do is to drop any amount you care to, in the pots, just as many times a day as you care to, for there" are upward of forty families who are to go din- nerless on Christmas unless the con tributions come more generously in the future than they have been report ed In the past. The Salvation Army has the rec ord of providing the more destitute with needful articles for their Christ mas dinners. In the past more than forty baskets, with the season's best. have been made up and have ' been generously distributed. Only the more needful families are thus provided, and many look to the Army for their dinner on Christmas, as judged by the record of that body in the past. , - Any of the "boiling pots" on the several corners will welcome a con-i tribution. and a few dimes spared may : mean the providing of some needful j I i family with bare necessities of life. jl.

Would he sit quietly back and let fate take its course, or would, the Instinct that prompts man to take his mate assert itself? The cave man wins m the end. Why?
