Which is merely a somewhat in
volved way of saying that if the com
mission chooses to transact the city's
business behind closed doors it may
do so. Tossibly the drawer of the bill
did not intend to give the commission
power to exclude the public from its
meetings, but he has most effectively
done that very thing.
SPECIAL TAX SCHOOL
DISTRICT DILL NOV
DEFORE LEGISLATURE
In the lower hose of the Florida leg
islature was introduced last Saturday
a bill providing that the territory now
embraced within the corporate limits
of the city of Daytona be "created
special tax school district number 6
of the county of Volusia and state of
Florida." The measure was introduc
ed by Representatives II. G. Putnam
and J. G. Cade, and Senator Terrell
will present it in the upper house
Tuesday.
W M. Hankins, president of the mu
nicipal school board, and Attorney E.
F'. Oates, who went to Tallahassee
last week to see about getting legis
lative action on the special tax school
district bill, returned to Daytona Sun
day afternoon.' As it is legislation af
fecting only local people and has the
endorsement or the county s repre
sentatives, there is little probability
that the bill will not be passed by the
house and senate and approved by
the governor within the next two or
three weeks. This done, the city will
then be in shape to issue school im
provement bonds about the validity
of which there will be no question. It
is probable that action will be taken
soon looking to the calling and hold
ing of another election to decide
whether or not the city shall issue
$80,000 more of bonds-for school pur
poses..

Mrs. II. II. Knappe had an experi
ence last Saturday at her home in
Blake which she thought It would be
well to let the public know about, as
it might put others on their guard
and she therefore telephoned the in
cident to the office of the Dally News
and Gazette-News.
Mrs. Knappe opened a can of a
well-known brand of roach poison for
the purpose of putting some of the
poison out for these insects which be
come more troublesome in warm
weather. - She inserted a spoon into
the can to get some of the poison and
was amazed to see the stuff burst into
a blaze. At the same time the con
tents of the can also ignited as did
also what had arhered to the lid
which she had laid to one side, all
three blazing away merrily. Mrs.
Knappe says there was no fire of any
kind about at the time and it was
evidently a clear case of spontaneous
combustion. She says she has been
using this brand of roach poison for
many years and never met with any-
trouble of this kind before, but thinks
that others who are using it should
be -warned by her experience and take
no chances with it.
