'; o We do not believe there is any city In Florida making a more steady and satisfactory growth than Lakeland. . o : Heard a lady who has been married : some years complain that her hus band's" kisses reminded her of Bevo there was no kick to them. o Oh, well, Logan and Langford are both nice men. and both will get the full amount of the handsome emolu ments of the sheriff's office, instead of one. Let us be happy. ,. Apparently things are too quiet and ;j "orderly in the phosphate section. i hence Catts is going down there Fri j day to see If ho can't stir up eome ..thing. If he doesn't it will be the first time he has failed. . Lake county is to be congratulated. It has "Push and Smile" Powell en !; gaged as secretary of its Chamber of I , Commerce- and he'll make things ii hum. As a publicity man and all '; fround booster. Powell has few equals In the country. Now that it's all over, will say that -JiSIo Hutchinson, of Davenport- is eome expert when it comes to fram ing resolutions. His expression on behalf of the people of Davenport, presented to the Logan protest meet ing at Bartow, was a humdinger both in sentiment and in wording. iBn't it sad that after you've ab Borbed information of all kinds all your life, and you sometimes marvel "how one email head can contain it all." your youthful progeny can tako the conceit out of you by proving that you can't answer eome perfectly sim ple question in their text-books? r Seems like there is a movement on foot to prosecute Joseph, son of Jacob I for profiteering. Joseph could like S ly invoke the statute of limitation: hut it would be Just like present-day procedure to try to make Joseph the ; goat and leave the real offenders un molested. I ' Beginning to believe that the people I of the United States can act as crazy I as those of other nations. Never I would admit, it before but when Tve jsee attempts to organize 3 "national party under the .nMtm of the Rus I eian soviet, ifid read and hear of st f many other wild and radical things, we confess that our faith in the com. ;!mon sense of the country begins to Tvaver.

This will be the first time since op ening for business fifteen years ago that we have found it necessary to cwse down to enlarge the plant, though It has been enlarged several times, but this time we are preparing to install such a large amount of new equipment that we find it will be im possible to serve our customers nt our own plant during the two weeks while this is being done: however, we have arranged to have our work done by the Tampa laundries, and the trucks will call for and deliver your laundry to yri as usual, except that the service will not be so prompt, and work coming in after Wednesday, may not be returned before the first of the next week. ' I urge that every one get their packages in on Monday or Tuesday, so that they can be returned during the week. The installation of this additional machinery puts us at the "Head of the r!&ss" in point of equipment, and we will be able to serve ydu better than ever. I wish to thank my customers for their liberal patronage, and for their good will toward the Lakeland Steam Laundry, and I assure you that it is our object to give you service at all times that will merit both 9577 R.

BARTOW SCHOOL OPENS: 500 IN ATTENDANCE Summerlln Institute opened its doors to the boys and girls of Bartow Monday morning. This, the opening day- the auditorium was crowded to standing room, many visitors from all portions of the city being present. A short program was rendered, in which Rev. R. F. Clavman of tha Presbyterian church. Rev. Yates of the, Methodist church, and County Superintendent John A. Mooro took part. At the close of the exercises when Principal A. B. Connor came for ward to make a few announcements the school greeted him with spontan eous acclaim, and continued to do eo until Rev. Yates stepped to the front of the platform and thanked them in behalf of the principal for the love and esteem shown him for his efforts fn their behalf. After singing "The Star Spangled Banner" a short recess was given, after which the pupils assembled in meir various rooms where promo tions took place immediately. The principal informs us that the enrollment was 550. and which he thinks will reach 600 within a few days . The high school is filled to over flowing. The officials who construct ed this building thought at the time of its building it would amply suf fice in size for many years to come. This, the beginning of the third year finds the building entirely too small.' The unpleasant , situation in regard to the school books must not be cred ited against our local anthnririM. 'tis the fault of state officials sending out list books eo late that our local agent could not procure them in time fcr tho opening. But Prof. Connor reports that school will continue, the teachers to make most of .the situa tion until new books arrive, which will be about ten days. Now that we have a school socond to none in the state, let us all uphold the teachers and keep on a high pland. Following is the list of teachers for the present term: Prof. A. B.

Catts has accepted the Gaines ville News' advice and apopinted his son, Lieut. Sidney J. Catts, to the of fice of adjutant general of the state. The Star is not surprised. It did not know Lieut. Catts was at home, else it would have been expecting the appointment. We have no doubt that young Catts is competent to fill the office. He has been in the army over two vears. some months of the time overseas, and could probably cope with a much more arduous task than to command the national guard of Florida, which at present consists of about a hundred men, and isn't likely to increase greatly under the administration of his father. All those who have spok en to the Star about him from per sonal acquaintance have declared him to be a clever young man and a good soldier. From a political standpoint, the ap pointment is a very bad one. It is the most direct instance of nepotism that has ever taken place in the his tory of this state. For the governor to put his own son in any high office is, according to democratic principle, inexcusable; it is even worse, accord ing to military ethics, to put an officer of his grade and experience in such a position when there are in the state scores of soldiers of higher rank and much more distineuishad hattm Young Catts would have done his father a favor by refusing to take the office.

Kline has solved the problem of the higher cost of paint ing due to the recent advance by the painters of their scale to $1 per hour. She has Just finished painting the ex terior of a home nt tho $tfoV as viewed by an ordinary layman j "Oh, of course, I had the help of my husband on part of the work!" mod estly exclaimed Mrs. Kline this morn ing, when questioned about her feat, but passersby say that Mrs Kline her self did most of the work, her hus band having time to help her only at odd intervals. "I see nothing unusual about it," laughingly continued Mrs. Kline. "I Me My Work My Customers T. E.

Kind of Wife to Have "People who passed and say me at work would call out, 'Have you got a card?' 'Better watch out or the un ion will get after you!' and things of that sort, while one man exclaimed, 'That's the kind of wife to have!' I though nothing of doing the work it self but did not know what the neigh bors would think of me. Well, it's done now, but Mr. Kline and I are go ing to fix up the interior, too. That will not be so hard because I won't be out where people cm see me." "No. I did not wear overalls but my ordinary house dresses," she said when asked how she managed to get ,up and down the ladder. "The high est parts were done by my husband." Mrs. Kline worked out one trouble that bothers amateur painters, the keeping the border paint from smear ing all over the body of the house. She used a cardboard when she paint ed the trimmings. "I'm not afraid of the unions get ting after me," continued Mrs. Kline "My husband is a union barber and my son, Hector, belongs to the chauf-t feurs' union. I suppose if it keeps up they'll have the girls and myself in a union, too," This isn't the first home-made iob -that the Klines have done. Mr. Kline and his son recently finished a con crete block garage in the rear of their new home. Miami Metropolis.
