Airship Will Pass Ober
Lakeland This Afternoon
AVIATOR BONNEY. EN ROUTE FROM KISSIMMEE TO PLANT
CITY, TO PASS THIS POINT ABOUT 6 O'CLOCK.
For the lirst time in the lives of
most of them the people of Lakeland
will this evening have an opportun
ity of seeing a real airship in action.
A message received today conveyed
the information that Aviator Bonney,
v. ho has been at Kisslmniee, as ,i
nature of the big celebration Just
pulled off at that city, would leave
there this afternoon In an effort to
II v to Plant City, and that he would
pass over Lakeland between ."
and f:.' o'clock. A later message
this afternoon confirmed the state
ment. Mr. Ilonney having left KIs
simnice on schedule time, and there
being every probability that he would
make Lakeland by fi o'clock.
The message did not state wheth
er or not a landing would be made
at Lakeland, but it is not at all un
likely. In any event the passagi
will be Millicleiitly low to afford a
good view of tin wonderful airship,
and It is probable that large crowd-
will watch the horizon eagerly at
the appointed hour and be in readi-
n to cheer the daring aviator in
his trackless Might.
Some time ago Mr. Ilonney corre
sponded with Ihe Lakeland Hoard of
Trade relative to making tin exhibi
tion flight in this city, but the af
fair did not materialize. Now, how
ever, the citizens will have an op
portunity to see him In action with
out any expense whatever.

New York, April I.- One reason
v.hy prices are high, according to
the witnesses who appeared before

their food supplies in bulk, but In
sist that their tea, sugar, butter and

handed to them In small but expen
sive packages. These foodstuffs were
purchased by the old-fashioned
housewife, the witnesses explained,
cither by the barrel or a hundred
pounds at a time. Now the purchas
ers pay for paper wrappings as well
as the tea, coffee, sugar or other com
modity that the package contains.

according to some oH (he testimony,
the farmer is reaping I lie harvest, To
