aboard the Mexico.
worth of school property, $73,000
appropriation for Federrl building,
and, in fact, every equipment for an
up-to-dato city.
"Thi3 present month of July, when
the usual southern town has some
excuse for dull times, Lakeland has
over $300,000 worth of building3 in
course of erection. Lakeland is an
all-year town, one good season last
ing from January to December, both
as to business and climate.
On this pagu Is shown a picture
from the architect's drawing of the
building to be erected by M. K.
Hctheiincion on bis lot, corner of
Main street and Massachusetts ave
nue, as a home for the Lakelani
Evening Telegram, which is his ex
clusive property, and for the Lake,
land News, of which be is the own
er of ninety per cent of tho stork.
The plans, which were drawn by the
distinguished architect, Mr. W. B.
Talley, are now in readiness for the
contractors, 1 .nd the contract for the
building will be let about Aug. 1.
The bpi.'diug will be located on
what is considered us perhaps ihe
most desirable lot available in the
city, frontin- the Tremont hotel :md
opposite the Auditorium. It will
have a frontage of 25 feet on Main
street and will extend 120 feet on
Mas9ichutett3 avenue, making an
Heal location for a printing estab
lishment, with reference to conven
ience and accessibility, and as re
gards arrangement for light and
ventilation.
As will be seen from the picture,
the style of architecture is some
what of a departure from the ordl
naary, and It is thought the building
will be creditable to the city. It
will be practically three stories, two
floors belrg superimposed oa a high
basement which will rise five feet
from the sidewalk. This entire
floor will be reserved for a mam
moth perfecting pres3, which the In.
creasing circulation of the Telegram
will soon necessitate; for mailing
purposes, and for storing the tons of
paper required by the various pub
lications issued from the plant.
The second floor will be occupied
by the business and editorial offices
of t'ae paper, in the rear of which
will be a large, well lighted and
airy workroom, equipped with the
latest improved machinery, and with
every arrangement for the comfort j
9Ti? tn nrnmnto thn plTlcipnpv nf ths '
employes.
The third floor, which is reached
by a stairway from the tiled lobby
in the front of the building, will
contain ten large, light, airy office
rooms, which will be very pleasant
and comfortable, and which will be
for rent to high-class professional
tenants. These rooms may be leased
single or en suite.
Eight years ago the Lakeland
News was purchased by Mr. Hether
ington for $1,500. There was a
small hand press and one stand of
type, and the circulation of the pa.
per was about 400. The proprietor
and one aged and partially paralyzed
printer constituted the entire force.
From these unfavorable beginnings
has 'grown the present considerable
business, with a pay-roll of over
$1,000 a month, and with a volume
of business any month of which dur
ing the past yeur would considerably
exceed the total of the first year's
business under the present manage
ment. This condition has been
brought about by unremitting toil In
the first place, nd by a progressive
and broad policy, which has won for
the institution the respect and loy
alty of the business men of the com
munity, to whose co-operation its
success has been due. The Lakeland
News and the Evening Telegram
have never known friend or foe in
the performance of their obligation
as newspapers, but have given to all
a fair and Just deal. They have
been on the Job always, working for
the upbuilding of the community and
for the advancement of every worthy
cause. They have admittedly done
more to advertise this city and sec
tion than any other agency. They
have aided in building up every eta
terprise in the community and nev
er for one moment has the slightest
advantage been taken of lack of com
petition, no change in advertising
rates having been made for years,
despite the tremendous LTowth in
circulation.
For some time the business of the
institution has been sadly hamrered
by cramped and unsuitable arters,
and with the removal of this handi
cap, and the addition to the large
plant of several thousand dollars'
worth of modern equipment which
will be put In the new building, the
management believes that more can
be accomplished for the good of
Lakeland, and that there will be a
newspaper and printing establish
ment here of which the city may be
proud.
