Then he went to the circuit courj, the court of record, and the federal court, but they too were closed, and Clerks Macgibbon, McMillan, and Marsh had gone where the woodbine twineth maybe certainly they weren't there, and the cirptiaess of the reportorial notebook became still heavier. Then he bethought him of United States Marshal Perkins, but, the bolt of his door only rattled in the jamb so if any ships or sailors were In trouble, they would have to nurse their sorrow in secret. He then went to Postmaster Han cock s office: nothing doing; then to the city hall, but Clerk Eggart and Mayor Hinrichs were in Tallahassee and he lost heart. He went back to the office. "There isn't any news," quoth he to the M. E, "Take another look," said that functions ry. So the reporter went down to the water front and saw thirteen steam ers, squareriggers and barks anchored in the stream not to mention the dozens of fishing craft at the wharves, some of which were dis charging cargo while' crowds of visit ors stood around in the msllow gun shine watching tub after tub of red snappers swing ashore. And entering the bay, framed against the sunset, was a great square rigger coming into port, a tower of canvas. . And hff&endeth the qu;st of the reporter for news on January 1, 1917, but he'll be on the job blight and early today as usual.

Adv. "I'm taking a forty-mile trip to get more Tanlac," was the remarkable statement made by J. D.' Hawkins, a well-known and prosperous farmer, to the Tanlac representative in Ja cobi's Pharmacy, Memphis, Tenn., a few days ago. "Yes, sir," continued Mr. Hawkins, "I live at Bartlett, Tenn., and I drove weight miles to Raleigh this morning and caught a trolley car there, for Memphis, which is twelve miles more, so you see when I get back home I've traveled forty miles and that ought to be proof enough of what I think of Tanlac. "I declare I never saw or heard of a medicine doing as much jood as Tanlac, My wife has gained fifteen pounds on three bottles of it and be sides it has gotten her over her troubles that have been weakening her down for nearly twenty years, and I don't aim for her to be without it. She suffered awfully with indi gestion and was growing very weak and badly run-down. Every single thing she would eat made gas . and! gave her severe pains in the stomach She had no appetite at all and what little she would force herself to eat hurt her so bad it seems she would have been better off without eating it. She suffered terribly with nerv ' ous headache and couldn't sleep on account of it. She was so tired all the time she never felt like doing a thing. In fact, she wasn't ablaito do any of her housework at all . She had tried everything without getting any relief and I was about to give up in despair wljen I read about Tanlac and got her a bottle of it. "I just can't say too much for Tan lac for my wife's improvement has been wonderful. She can do all her housework now and before she could scarcely get around at all. She is re lieved of the indigestion and has a good appetite. She eats most any thing she wants and is relieved of the - gas and pains she used to have. Her nerves are quiet and she sleeps good at night and don't have the sick headaches like she did. As I have al ready said she has gained fifteen pounds in weight and is gaining strength and health all the time since taking Tanlac.

Their arrival was on the second day of the third month, Safar 1335, a date that if interpreted, as the Turrialba slipped by the light house on Morro Castle, would indi cate that the year 1916 was fast drawing toward its close. Havana opened its heart to the visitors. Local Shriners put on a ceremonial in the Havana Y. M. C. A. in which fifty candidates of Havana trod the sands of the desert in the playground of the nations. This was the second time dispensa tion was ever granted by the 1m perial potentate of the order for the shrine ceremonial on foreign soU. The first being at the city of Mexico i when former President Diaz was in augurated. This is, too, the second time that Osman Templu has jour neyed to the Panama Canal zone. Shades of Persia! Havina and its thousands of Americans, as well as its native population rejoiced that the visitors from the far north should behold what amazing won ders American constructive genius has wrought in this old and ancient capital. Though its quaint buildings point to the grandeur azid glory of Spain three hundred yeai-s ago, yet. here, in Havana, that glerjt has not fled. Not so many years ago a journey to Havana would have wsen regard ed as a pilgrimage to a ttr city. To day it's easy and when they come visitors behold one of the most mod ern cities of its size in the world. There are 185 miles of city streets paved with granite blocks or sur faced with concrete in Havana. This work was only completed during the last two or three years. Theie are more than 160 new steel and con crete business structure!;, some of them -with the land on which they stand beinff valued .at moi-e than $3,- 500,000.

Havana has all the mys tic fascination of an old city, which it is. But its improvements make it bright, spic, span, and new. It is dustless, odorless, and healthy. It i3 crowded with tourists from the States and Central aud South Ameri ca. The wonderful Prado, a boulevard enclosing in its center a tree shaded lawn with asphalt walks, leans from the center of the city to the Malecon fcor sea drive which skirts the deep blue Caribbean Sea. The Prado was improved and reconstructed by Gen eral Leonard Wo"d. Along the Male con Drive passe?, a constant proces sion of autos. The boulevard is sur faced with concrete and the side to ward the ocean lined with a huge es capement. This is one of the show places on this side of the world, and toward the sea and this mghty boulevard face the mansions of the new Havana. The old Havana with its'quain nar row streets, its many churches, its buildings with their overhanging balustrades is as fascinating as al ways. Portions of the city remind one of Seville or Madrid. Here are lofty ceilinged homes that fifty years ago cost ereat fortunes. Some of them with their maible and hrrood fur nishings cost $500 r J0. Today tha street cars of ra pass tham so close ly that oiik or.n almost reach out and toucb the oi-namental iron lattices thPt mark t&iir glassiess windows doing tu foreign trade which its ex perts say is now in the neighborhood of $350,000,000 a year. President Mario A. Menocal and his cabinet are progressive, hardworking men and are pushing forward the devel opment of Cuba. President Menoeel is a graduate of Cornell. Great at tention is being given to popular education. The government is framed after that of the United States which gave Cuba its first up ward lift to freedom. These are . some of the reasons why the American population of Havana which has taken a leading part in the constructive development of the city and of the island were re joiced that .the Shriners saw the new town and can carry back the message of what they, themselves, have seen to the United States. As the big Turrialba slipped out of ths harbor, past Cubana fortress, past Morro Castle, Havana said: "Cnv again, Shriners, and see v Urxie Sam's big work in thi Zucky, Iiappy island is cor"'0 aiA "Com?
