Daviti, secretary of the St. AuRustine and South Beach Railway, your corres pondent, a poor newspaper man poor, of course, for whoever heard of a quill driver being anything else? was en abled to take a jaunt over to the beach, to gather shells by the sea shore, set: the rolling surf and hear the giant breakers dadliing ceaselessly on the strand. , A short walk down to the dock brings you to the-ferrjr Ixwt Myth, a trim little steam yacht that leaves regularly every hour on week days and half hourly on Sundays. Five minutes will land you safely on the company's railway dock on Anaatasia Island. The tiniest little locomotive and neatest passenger coach awaits you there, "all aboard," shouts the conductor, a toot of the whistle, a j ngle of the bell and away you go to the light house. It is only a mile and a half and before you know it, the whistle toots again, the brakeman turns the crank and vou ston opposite the new hotel, a stone's throw from the beach, and about two hundred yards from the light house. The party separated, some going to the beach, some to the light house, and others looked around to see the improve ments. The leach is strewn for miles with bales of hay, boxes, spars and pieces of timber from the wreck of the Hickman that went ashoie ou the 1ar about a week ago. The heavy blocks of coquina remain ing from the ruins of the oil light house that was wahed down several years ago are piled up on the shore. The new light house is several hundred yards front the beach and from its eultstantial look is likely to last as long as the pyra mids. ine new notel is being pushed as rapidly as possible and will be ready for the reception of guests in aliout two or three weeks. Workmen were engaged grubbing out streets on the island and lots are offered for sale at reasonable prices. Several new cottages have been put up and more have been contracted for. A trip to the beach will afford pleasure for a whole day and if you miss it, you will deprive yourself of one of the chief delights of a visit to St. Augustine. Election of Officers. The St. Augustine acht Club met last Thursday and held their annual election of officers, resulting as follows Commodore A. E. Dougkiss. New York. Vice Commodore Ed V. Clark, New York. Secretary and Treasurer It. F. Arm etrong, St. Augustine. Measurer C. W. Staehlin, Bulow O roves. Fleet Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ander son, St. Augustine. House Committee J. V. Denny, H. P. Arnmidown, Dr. A. Anderson. Regatta Committee E. C. - Cozzens, New bold Edgar, Daniel Edgar. The committee on the site for the New Club House was handed in, read and ap- . proved. The negotiations for the pur chase of the Edgar property were closed. resulting in the purchase. This property is finely located and will be used for the erection of a club house that Our citi zens can point to with pride. Several fine regattas will be given this eason, which will afford excitement in abundance to those who love aquatic sport. The Young Men's Christian Associa- tion is endeavoring to arrange for a v course of lectures by Prof. Tripp. Joyce's Orchfstra was dispensing sweet music for the delectation of the guests of the I lorida House yesterday afternoon. 7a.m... 30W K ",10. .iHKi tW 'Cloudy b. m... 30.40 E 3 0.10 ltj M Cloudy 9 P- ni. lau 40 'tt ....

Surprise and Birthday Party. A pleasant little surprise was arranged for last Tuesday evening by a number of friends of Mrs. Markle to celebrate her birthday. The party was hastily gotten up and as impromptus usually are, was heartily enjoyed by all. A feature of the entertainment most spirited of any and greatly appreciated by the host, was the presentation by the guests of a handsomely liound book. The party were regaled with a colla tion in closing and all went home with a feeling of having spent a most delight ful evening. Real Estate Notes. Mr. Stafford, of North City, has just purchased the house and two lota of Mrs. Filkins, on Ballard street, for cash. Mr. Slater reports other sales on the tapis, and that real estate is moving bet ter than ever before at this season. Mr. Ritchie, of the Chapin Real Estate Agency, has just made another sale the Nahouse estate on Washington avenue to Mr. Sattherwaite, a northern gentle man. This agency makes no charge for advertising property placed in their hands for sale. The attention of our readers is called to the beautiful tract bordering the river, called the '"River side," which this agency has the sole con trol of. Transactions in realty for the week have been active, but the amounts light. One tenement in North City, one in New Augustine, two lots in Buena Esperanza, a house near the shell road, and one tract of railroad lani, aggregating in all about $10,000, represent the week's business. Brokers are just now living in a ?tate of lively expectancy. Bunko Men Beware. Captain Archer, who has charge of the Ponce de Leon police force, is aver on the alert to protect the guests of that fa mous hotel from the wiles of the cheat and gambler. Yesterday morning a suspicious char acter, in the person of Charles Ricker- son, was found engaged in some ques tionable moves, and the captain notified him that his game was understood and induced him to make himself scarce.

The Needs of the City. Editor of the Palatka Scicn. The necessities of the hour, arising from the peculiar fact that our city has suddenly grown from three thousand inhabitants to over ten thousand, are at once numerous and startling. We are brought face to face with responsibili ties we cannot shirk without imminent danger to the welfare of the town and the prosperity of our families. It is ex ceedingly difficult to comprehend the G J. VEDDEtt.1 great good fortune that has fallen to our lot, and even more so to know just how to utilize it. Some are inclined to sit still and let the ba'l roll on, confident that in some way they will escape being run over. Some are willing to do thtir part, but do not see far enough in the future'to know what to do, while still others realize that they have a great work on h.and. and to keep up with the car of progress they must employ the best qualities they iossess. To the man who can grasp the situation the possibili ties are very great, and his earnest in quiry is "What needs doing firrt:'' And then if he can thrust aside selfishness, and with public spirit seek the greatest good for the greatest number, he will lie led to say, "The preservation of health f ulness in the city generally, should be of primary importance at such a time as this." And how can this desidera tum be attained? Dr. Westcott", in his able disquisitions, published in the papers recently, has shown, that drainage must be promptly attended to or an epi demic is almost absolutely sure to mak e itself known. How then can we as a city, densely populated, escape without a good system of sewers? Truly our great prosperity may turn to be a curse if we fail in our duty. But says one, "The city has no money." A city hav ing five millions invested in real prop erty and no money. The proposition is prejiosterous. "But the laws prevent our raising or expending a larger sum." Then why in the name of common sense may not the laws be chanced? Here is one of the needs of the city. Men who have the will and the ability to provide a thorough system of drainage. Next in importance should come the improvement of the streets. No city ever prospered long at a time that neg leoted to provide easy means of locomo tion. How much depends on this is seen when one of two streets is paved and the other left without it. Immediately business will change- its course and the shabby street is soon forgotten. Tiie ad vantage to a city paved with such pave ments as are now being laid m certain streets can easily be seen by the most thoughtless, say nothing" of men of brains who have wealth i t stal e. Pave St. George street with asphalt and prop erty tb.ere will double in value. Leave it as it is and it will depreciate beyond computation. More Anon. SPECIAL NOTICES.
