THE ABOUNDING PROS PERITY upon vrniCH the COUNTRY HAS ENTERED For months the United States gov ernment urged all business men to realize that they could "sell" pros perity to the country by big. bold advertising. It urged everybody to advertise heavily; If they were al ready advertising, to Increase their expenditure and broaden their pub licity campaign; and if they were not advertising to begin an aggressive campaign Never was better business advice given, never was It more fully ac. cepted, and never was there a great er demonstration of the wisdom of such advice. Business men every There commenced to advertise more freely and on broader lines. Many men who had never done much ad vertising saw a new light and began to advertise, while old-time adver tisers made larger appropriations and gave greater heed to the almost lim itless power of publicity. The result is everywhere in evi dence. The confidence displayed by heavy advertising begot confidence. The optimism of advertisers created optimism, and the pessimists slunk back Into their holes and pulled the holes In after them permanently buried face downward, as is the Just desert of every man who becomes a pessimist in America. Many men who at first did not see just how advertising could help their individual business, nevertheless they too, if broad in vision and patriotic la spirit, began to advertise, following the felt a pride in being have been practically exterminated, and this is the only one killed in re cent years. The killing occurred about eight miles from Kissimmee. PRESIDENT PLEASED WITH ATTITUDE OF REPUBLICANS (By Associated Press.) Washington, July 19.

To be "kidnap. ped" three times in one year has been fhf exDerience of little Lillle Nox- tine, three and a half years old., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Noxtine. Mr. Noxtine, Uvea at Suth erland, twenty-two miles from Tam pa, and Mrs. Noxtine has for he past year lived in this cltyi They sep- nratftd because they "Just couldn't agree on things." Each time the "kidnapping" stunt has been done by one or the other parent. First it was Mr. Noxtine who took the baby from the mother. then Mrs. Noxtine spirited the pretty little Miss away; and now Papa Nox tine has pulled the stunt again. Inasmuch as the law of Florida does not recognize a parent who takes his own or her own child forcibly ,m nnnther as a kidnapper, the law haan't heen violated at all by either government's advice and soon they t . Mrg Noxtine recently a pride in being numbered among . ,t fof the business leaders who were doing their part toward bringing prosper ity to the country and thus helping to destroy the seeds of Bolshevism, which fructify in poverty soil" and which die in Boils where prosperity is flourishing. Largely as- an outcome of this splendid work, vigorously conducted y the Secretary of Labor and to whom great credit is due, everyoue now realizes that the country has taken the right road at the forks, and Instead of traveling toward the land f poverty and anarchy, is headed straight on the road to the land of abounding national prosperity, and this, glorious- change Is largely due to the power of advertising, which cre ated an air of optimism, and as a na tion thinketh in Its heart so is it The nation is now thinking in terms of publicity-created prosperity and it realizes as never before that adver tising la the great power which has saved ns from stagnation and unem ployment, and that advertising, big started a suit for divorce in the cir cuit court here, and she not only is asking for divorce but for alimony and custody of the child. She expects to get the baby by court decree and then there will be an end of kidnap ping or Papa Noxtine will be In trou ble. Mrs. Noxtine is a pretty little wom an. She works In one of the down town refreshment parlors and liven with relatives at 207 Lamar street. It was last Saturday, while Mrs- Nox tine was away earning bread for her relf and the baby that an auto stopped broad and intelligent advertising will keep the nation traveling safely on the road of prosperity. Advertising. Is therefore, as so strongly presented by the Federal government, a work of patriotism as well as of enlightened selfish busi- ness interest. crd.

FIRST IMPRESSION OF FLORIDA We always envy the man who has spent his life in thd cooler countries and makes his first trip to Florida. He has so much to be encountered that will be a delight; so many won derful things to see and so many pleasures to enjoy.

The line of growing he thinks will appeal to him, will be found easy of access, and that a home amid lakes and groves aro waiting for him The fine schools for the kiddies are here, and the vine and fig tree Btretches out beckonlngly to father and mother.

Bartow Record. The editor cf this paper landed at Lalaha, now in Lake county, on March IS, 1877. Although he has not accumulated wealth as many others have done, he has never regretted settling In this state; His failure to get rich Is due solely to the want ot the necessary Judgment and fore thought to take advantage of conditions. But he has enjoyed something which Is more valuable than money. viz: tho most delightful climate In America and the association of tho best people in tho world. It is the people o.t last, more than anything else, which make a state worth liv ing In. The Innumerable natural ad vantages and industrial resources1 ot Florida would be of little value to a man, were he not surrounded by good people. Our people come from all over the world. They have every shade of political and religious be lief and their mingling together gtves them the most liberal views of any people elsewhere In the United States. There Is no intolerance, no psuedo aristocracy based upon wealth. Ev ery man of brains and character; re ceives due recognition, It matters) not whether he has money or not. To ?iim, all doors are open. He feels nt home anywhere In the state. And If he should suffer misfortune, help ing hands are promptly extended to him. Any man of Intelligence, energy and honesty who comes here and con ducts himself as a good citizen and neighbor and lives amongst these people for a few months, will readllz recognize the fact that Florida Is blessed with the best people on earth. But, if he goes' as a stranger into one of the older states and settles and his neighbors discover that he has but little, If any money, he will be a long time finding congenial as sociates for himself and family. Even if he and his family bring their church letters and unite with the local church, the members will pav him little attention and his family will feel lonesome and discontented. But he will find no such condition .in Florida, particularly South Florida. We are inviting good people from everywhere to come here and settle cmongst us and share in the bless ings which we enjoy.; And when they come and we see that they are good people, we extend them a cordial wel come and do everything we can to snake things pleasant for them. Thl Is why social conditions In Florida are so pleasant, and It also explains why the editor of the Herald, an Alabamlan, has continued to live In this state for over forty years and will continue to live in It as long as God permits him.
