ATTITUDE ON FEE
BILL IS RESENTED
In resentment of the attitude of Sen
ator John P. Stokes with reference to
the sheriff's fee bill, a telegram was
dispatched last night to the local sena
torial representative by A. H. Clopton,
which is understood to voice the senti
ments of a number of friends of the
sheriff and his force, as expressed dur
ing yesterday. .
"John P. Stokes. State Senator,
"I have noted your amendment to
sheriff's fee fee bill excluding Escam
bia county. Many people are won
dering at this; I presume to put my
thought Into words; if the counties of
puval and Hillsborough are entitled
to the increase, so Is Escambia. Ef
ficiency is dependent upon, sufficient
compensation; present compensation
does not insure efficiency.

Sun and Wind Bring Out Ugly Spots.
How to Remove Easily.
Here's a chance. Miss Freckle-face,
to try a remdy for freckles with the
guarantee of a reliable concern that it
will not cost you a penny unless it
removes the freckles; while if it does
give you a. , clear complexion the ex
pense is trifling..
Simply get an ounce of pthine
double strength from any "druggist
and a few applications should show
you how easy it is to rid yourself of
the homely freckles and get a beauti
ful complexion. Rarely is more than
one ounce needed for the worst case.
Be sure to ask the druggist for the
double strength Othine as this strength
is sold under guarantee of money
back if it fails to remove freckles.
