Florida- We the unileisigned Committee appointed by tbe autlior'i'y of tlie Cemetery Improvement Association of MndiHon, Florida, would respect fully petUion your Honorable body to condemn the old plank fence situated on the east side of the lot in the Town of Madison and known as the Eppes lot, and would respectful ly call the attention of this Council to tbe fact that the fence is rotten and very unsightly besides being so far on tbe side walk on the east side leading to the cemetery that it is almost impossible for persons going on same to pass when meeting. It is the purpose of tbe Cemetery As sociation to build a nice iroi fence on the east side of tbe Cemetery Lot and to m'ike other much needed im provements at the ctmctery, a place that should be dear to every hertrt in the town, and the ladies of the association feci that if this Honorable Council will require the property owner ol this lot to remove this fence ubout three feet further wt st tbat it would then be in line with the new iron fence and thus add greatly to appearance of the new fence und giv ample room for a side walk ar.tl at tbe same time in doing thN, we would be getting rid of an eye sore to the town and especially to the people who frequently visit the cemetery.

Dear Sir: You manage men and mtv chmerv; no one knows better than yosi ; tbat one man Ih worth more than anorfc er; tbat one machine is worth more than another machine. Sometimes yoa pay tbe man more, sometimes you don't; i sometimes the machine costs nore, , sometimes it doesn't. The d I fl'erenee is, sometimes, two or three to one, an4 1 costs not a cent. Bo with paint, and more too; the paint that does best service makes a leaf, first coat of tbe job you can paint Do voe at less expense than the uieanesr stuff you can get, It is like a good steady man or ma chine; hut goodness and steadiness have to be paij for I'l men, in machines not always, and never in paint. Point is cheap in proportion to strength. It is pure paint that is steady aid good; it is paint adulterated tbat it tricky. There is enough paint In the worst of these mixtures to look and feel like paint, and enough adulterante (whiting, china clay, barytes, ground etoue, benzine, water) to make two gal lons of one. There are eight pure paints In the United States; we know of no more ". there are 2o0 adulterated. We analyse all and know what they are made of. Pure Isn't all; you want strength. The least-gallons paint is Devoe. Yours truly, 00 F. W. Devoe & Co. P. Si. D. U. Snail h sells our paint. The strawberry nnd celery grow ers of LaKclaud are preparing land fur the coining crop.
