AMERICAN for AMERICAN WATCHES GIRLS 7 he 10-0 Size Elgin Watch Is The Smallest Made American Watch Rotary Buttons for The Rotes Stevens Jewelry Store A National Holiday Why not make November 11 a na tional holiday? The question and suggestion 1b made In good faith, and for the Inofrmatlon of many who be lieve that the Fourth of July Is suffi cient for all purposes, It may be stated that the Independence day, celebrated on July 4. has never been proclaimed a national holiday, and while it is generally observed, has no place In official records other than as given In 1776 as a date of great sig nificance. November 11, practically bringing the end of the world war, in which the United States was engaged 'on principle, and not for gain, could well be made a national holiday. The importance of the events that led up to the signing of an armistice by Ger many should never be forgotten and it would be a fitting tribute to allied Interests as well as to our own coun try, to mark with special distinction the day on which the greater portion of the world celebrated a victory for the rights of the people. This is not a suggestion that any part of the observance of the coun try's birthday anniversary be omit ted. The Fourth of July was cele brated in Great Britain last summer and was an occasion of great Joy and jubilation In France and Italy. It is right and proper to continue the demonstrations that especially recall the birth pf a country that was to become an impelling voice in the chorus of nations; but it seems prop er to make a national holiday to commemorate the achievement of the United States, now grown to full strength and magnificent in her pow er and influence. To America is conceded the weight that forced the bonds of tyranny from millions of people; let America set apart November 11 as a day of thanksgiving and general rejoicing. November has long been the month in whicb a thanksgiving day has been observed, designated each year by federal and state executives; this then would be but the fixing of the date, permanently and moving the celebration a few days forward. It could, still be called Thanksgiving day, for such it was, all over the world. Unquestionably, behind the bolei terous, noisy, unusual and often seemingly senseless ways of giving vent to the feelings, observed on the eleventh day of November, 1918, there was "thanksgiving" in every true heart for the news that had come in the early hours of the morn ing, flashed over land and sea, meant more than mere words could express That the day could well be set apart as a day of national thanksgiving seems right and reasonable. Why not have a national holiday and make It November 11? not the first Tues day, or the last Thursday, in Novem ber, but November 11, the greatest day in the history of the world. Jacksonville Times-Union. THE FARMER'S HAPPY LOT There is no need for the people of Florida to send out of the State for anything they need in the way of food supplies. Almost anything which is produced elsewhere may be produced on the Florida farm. In times such as we are now going through, the Florida farmer should regard himself as being truly fortu nate. In the towns and cities food of all kinds is higher than even many old men have ever known it to be. Yet the Florida farmer is not dis turbed on this account. In fact he is making a greater profit on his pro duce than he every made bef re, while at the same time the high prices for food amounts to nothing to him because he raises all he con sumesif ho Is a true farmer. He can have fresh eggs for break fast at little or no cost for them whilo his friend in town must pay 75 cents a dozen for them, or do with out them. Ho has an abundance of milk while his city friend has to buy It at 20 cents a quart. He has plenty of fresh Jersey but ter Just from the churning while the town people have to pay 70 cents a pound for It. He has an abundance of sugar, made at little cost on his farm, while the city folk are limited to two pounds per month. He Is provided by his farm with hams, bacon, beef, pork, mutton, chickens, vegetables, grits and fre3h corn meal, fruits, etc., at little or no cost for the amount consumed by simself and family, while his sur plus brings him a handsome income. His occupation is pleasant and In teresting. His life, removed from the flurry of commercial activity, Is lived in peace and quiet. He can eleep well at night undisturbed by nightmares of business worry. Sometimes his visitors come in the form of storm or of Jack Frost, but ho soon repairs the damage and re sumes his life of peace and quiet and profit. If the Florida farmer isn't the happiest man among men, there is something tho matter with the man or his methods. Clearwater Sun.
