The asphalt is steadily approaching this city from Auburndale, and it will not be long until a magnificent 15 foot highway will stretch from Lake land to the Osceola county line, and hundreds of automobiles will line our snlendid velvet roads.

Fred proudly presents it as the "Smallest Paper in the World." At that, he says, "it is not near so small as some of the honorable gentlemen who stand around on the street cor jicra and spit tobacco and cuss it." o Wars may come and wars may end - some of them in the past have done t o but two signs of cold weather in the North never fail us: Our one legged or otherwise mutilated friend who comes down to sit on the side walk and invite a donation of small coins, and the artist with an advertis ing scheme to enable him to winter In Florida at the expense of our mer chants and business men. Have you bought a war savings stamp? You should do so. It will take only a small sum that you can easily spare, and probably otherwise would fritter away, and this sum will be invested at interest in the safe eat security in the world. The post master will inform you on any point you may not fully understand. o We are printing today, at our own Instance, a report of the Chamber of Commerce, for the month of Novem ber such a report as is made every month by the Secretary to the Board of Directors. We are doing this for the benefit of the many people who have no idea of the character of work the organization Is doing, or how many beneficial results accrue to the community from this work. The list of fine permanent citizens that have been added to our population in one month through this body's activities is something to be proud of. If such a showing represented a year's ef fort instead of a month's, it would be well worth what it cost the com-1 to work munlty to maintain its Chamber of Commerce. The organization de serves the most hearty cooperation and the most liberal support of every citizen of the place. If it had a more generous support, it could make a much better showing; but handi capped as it is, it has done and is Wavelets Fro m The Deep C.

What came very near being an anti-climax to the beautiful story of "The Seven Swans" was happily averted Sunday afternoon when the long line of automobiles returning from Carmichael's landing were halt ed near the large bridge in the ham mock just outside the last gate lead ing into the inclosure. The incanta tions of the "witch" could be heard quite a distance when car contain ing her and several of the "swans" now restored to their natural forms, was seen to be sinking in the soft sand of the embankment on one side of the road. Only the timely aid of the occupants of the other cars saved more than one of the brothers of the dear little "princess" from being turned into "a ditch." This extra scene was not staged by J. Searles Dawley, but ended happily amid much laughter and merriment. m m w Through the thoughtfulness of Mr. E. C. Bennett, the girls and teachers at the reform school were made hap py by a glimpse of Miss Marguerite Clark and several of her company yesterday afternoon, who at his re quest kindly stopped on their return from the springs long enough for them to make the acquaintance of this charming little actress.
