THE EVENING TELEGRAM, LAKH LAND, FLA., FRIDAY, DEC. 29, 1016
- OF POLK COUNTY .
Dr. Joseph' Y. Porter, State health
officer, has Just finished sending out
the supplies of blanks and forms to
the local registrars In the State in
order that they may begin the work
of registering all births and deaths
that occur after midnight Dec. 31,
1916, in the State of Florida as pro
Tided by the vital statistics law,
which was enacted by the 1915 ses
sion of the Legislature.
Beginning' with the first of the
year there is no reason why each
and every birth and death that oc
curs within the State of Florida
should not be registered, as a local
registrar has been provided for each
municipality and voting precinct.
BirthB are to be reported by the
physician or midwife in attendance
at the birth, and when no physician
or midwife in attendance at the
birth, and when no physician or
midwife is in attendanhe, it becomes
the duty of the father or mother to
make such report to the local regis
trar of the, municipality or voting
precinct in which the birth occurred,
and this report must be made with
in ten days after the date of birth.
Deaths are to be reported by the
undertaker, or person acting as such,
which includes any person having
charge of the burial of a dead body.
The law requires that they must file
a certificate of death with the local
registrar of the municipality or vot
ing precinct in which the death oc
curred and procure a burial permit
before making any disposition of a
dead body by burial or otherwise
The following is a list of the local
registrars in and for each munici
- pality and voting precinct in Polk
county with the territory covered by
each: Lakeland, H. L. Swatts;
Bartow, WV S. Wtev.; Fort Meade, G.
L. Broderick; Wflnter Haven, R. B.
Iledrick; Mulberry, U. J. Keener;
Auburndale, G. C. Davis; Kathleen,
W. i-anier; Medulla, J. D. Hicks.
THE DISTRIBUTION OF GIFTS
The Bible tells us that there is
"one glory of the sun, and-another
glory of the stars, for one star dif
fereth from another star in glory."
How true that is.
We see its truth verified every-
-where In nature. Rarely are two
oisunct guts Destowea upon a sin
gle object. While nature is lavish
with her gifts, fortunately she does
'.not pile them up in heaps, but like
the early and the latter rains they
ure distributed over the earth alike
to the just and the unjust.
We admire the giant trees of the
forest, not for their beauty, but for
their strength, while we admire the
jiowers or me neias, not for their
B-ICU6UU, ou, lur luir oeamy.
How beautiful, yet how different.
r u me rowers none are be-
blowbu wua tne same girts. Those
that are"beautiful are not always
fragrant, and those that are fragrant
are not always beautiful. The violet
and the lily cannot boast of the
queeily qualities of the rose, but
none the less the violet is wor
fehipped for Its modesty and the lily,
for Its purity.
Among the birds of the air this
rule holds true also, as it does among,
the beasts of the forest
The elephant possesses no lines of
beauty, but he is admired for his
bulk and for his strength, and the
Hon for his very ferociousness, whil
Ibe smaller animals win our admir
ation along the lines of their nlm
bleness and coyness.
The mocking bird is not so gor
geously arrayed as the bird of para
'dise, nor has the canary the bril
liant Ihues of the red bird, but they
are possessed with the greater gift
We see this truth of .sifts verified
In the higher creation of man. While
mature is as lavish with her gifts
here as elsewhere she has no favor
ites, to the extent at least of load
ing all her gifts on any one man.

CAPT. JEFF RIGCS :
. GAINS 25 POUNDS
Popular. Engineer Says He Would
Have Had to Give Up His Run if
It Hadn't Been for Tanlac.
"Yes, sir, it's an actual fact, I
have gained twenty-live pounds on
Tanlac," said Captain Jeff D. Riggs,
popular Y. & M. V. engineer, "run
ning between Vicnsburg and New
Orleans, and residing at 2020 Pearl
street, Vicksburg. Captain Riggs Is
a large property owner, and is well
known in railroad circles.
When I 'began taking the medi
cine," continued Captain Riggs. "I
was simply a nervous and physical
wreck and had dropped down in
weight from one hundred and forty
to one hundred and ten pounds. I
had absolutely no appetite for any
thing: to eat and my stomach was in
such a bad condition the little I did
eat harmed me In place of doing me
'good. I don't reckon anybody could
suffer from indigestion any worse
than I did. My system was pois
oned with malaria, my skin was yel
jlow and I felt drowsy and sluggish
'all the time. I was so nervous I
'couldn't sleep and had become so
j feeble from loss of strength I could
hardly crawl up on my engine. It
was alarming how fast I was going
down hill. It fact, I was unfit for
work and in the shape I was in it
was just a constant mental strain
and a struggle for me to properly
i handle my engine. I ihadn't been
able to get any kind of medicine to
help me and my condition was grow
ing more critical all the time. I was
very much worried about, myself and
I feel sure I would have been forced
to stop off from my run in a short
'time if it hadn't been for Tanlac.
"I have just finished my second
foottle of Tanlac, and as I have al
ready said, I have igalned twenty
five pounds, and I feel like a new
man. I .now feel about as strong and
active as I did when I first got my
run and I can handle my old engine
with as much ease as I ever could .
My stomach' is now in good shape,
my appetite is fine and I can eat any
thing I Want, and as much as I wish,
and everything agrees with me per
fectly. I'm relieved of the malaria,
my skin is clearing up and I don't
feel sluggish and drowsy like I did.
I'm not nervous any more, I sleep
well every night and feel fresh and
fine every day."
