There Is every reason. therefore, why we ehould vigorously prosecute a campaign for new peo ple, and at the same time there Is offered a magnificent opportunity for capital to provide these people with accommodations. Houses may readily be rented as soon as the plans are drawn. Scores of small, neat bun galows would be eagerly taken for the season by winter visitors. One or more large apartment houses would afford exceptionally attractive invest ments. One of these, well located ana modernly arranged, would be a gold mine for an investor.

Q WAVELETS FROM THE DEEP. CGreen Jacksonville Times-Union: It is of ficially stated that the "United States railroad administration is planning to tpend'some thousands of dollars dur ing the next few months advertising Florida as a winter resort, and ev erybody In the state is no doubt pleased over .the announcement. Florida needs more people, aud the way to get them for citizens and resi dents is to have them come and spend a time here looking around; the rail road advertising will reach sections where possibly little is known of attractions and possibili ties, and must do a great amount 0! good. But this is not the only force at work for the exploitation ol this wonderful state, not only as a COX OUSTED AS STATE ; HEALTH OFFICER (Continued from Page 1) R. P.

Close friends and ad visors of Dr. Cox said last evening that the next step would be a hear ing in the supreme court on a writ of quo warranto. It is expected that this sten will be taken within the next few days.

That's right- blame everything on poor old Booze! o Time always proves the correctness of any position that may be taken by this journalistic compendium of truth. A few years ago we were the victim of considerable chafing by the State press because we suggested that oil night be found beneath the surface of Florida. Now they're boring for it in various places, and down in Do Soto they're finding the most prom ising "sign." Lots of valuable things in the depths of Florida dirt, but there are so many attractive and remunerative things right on the sur face that we don't feel it necessary to ' '?'

But That Major Ralph. N. Green is the LAKELAND'S GREATEST NEED In the Very heart of summer, when the city's' population is at its lowest ebb, there is not a house, for rent ana it is difficult to provide even temporary quarters for new people who are constantly coming m. In several instances the latter nur chased property after being in the city only a few days, being unable to rent, and also being satisfied even in eo brief a stay that this is the town they desired to' live in. In the face of this condition, the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce is tmgaged In a work that will bring in . & flood of winter visitors next season, to say nothing of the homoseekers Who will come expecting to cast their lot here permanently. At first glance this would appear a needless effort, the argument being that If we ft A ... ' ' cave noi accommodations for the peo pie already here, it is useless to bring others. But if we pursued that idea to its logical conclusion, we might as well say that we do not care to see the city grow and ex pand; that because a merchant has more customers than he can wait upon that he should close his doors to others desirous of entering ihis store. ' . ' Like the wise merchant confronted .with the conditions suggested, Lake land must increase her facilities' must find more housing room. This has never been a tourist town, in the sense that the term is applied to those communities where the accom modation of tourists form the chief industry, hence we have not learned tc utilize our resources as ve might. Last season we accommodated at one time In the neighborhood of 2,000 winter visitors. That many more, however, could have been taken care of If our people had the knack of it. as is the case in other communities. We had much Tather have people come here and be compelled to leave for lack of accommodations than that they should pass the town by as s , Bill: "JuBt a cliDDine I srot in th barber ship." 9 0 Understand Mrs. Wilson objects to the President's speaking to her.
