WILL BENEFIT FLORIDA That Florida should have been selected for the next annua! meeting of the American Automobile Association is an event of no mean importance to this state. l c Representative Frank O. Miller of Jacksonville is said to be due much of ‘he credit fer landing the convention for his heme city. It means the bringing to Florida of hundreds of the prominent men of the country interested in the automobile industry and in goed roads. Pro viding steady progress is maintained by the State road department and by individual counties in the. world of highway constructicn, it ought to be pos sible for Florida to make a good showing. In another twelve months the northern trans-State read, highway No. 1. will be paved from Fake City to Jacksonville. There will be several good entrances to F loi ida from Georgia and Alabama, notably the northern end of Road No. 2 from Valdosta to Fake City, the read from Waycross to the St. Mary’s river where it connects with State read No. 4 into Jacksonville and the eastern-most or coastal route from Savannah to Jacksonville. The great bridge across the Apalachicola river at River Junction will be open to traffic and by that time West Florida will be tied in with a system cf good roads that will change conditons material ly. With, the trans-state road completed, the down-state highways will have a direct feeder over which enormous traffic is sure to come. We of this section of Florida arc cf course more directly in terested in the completion -cf State road No. 2 from Lake City southward through Gainesville, Ocala, and Leesburg to Polk county where it will act as a feeder for State road No. 8 from Haines City to Fort Pierce and afford a direct route through Lakeland, Bartow, Wauchula and Ar cadia to Pur.ta Gorda and Fort Myers. Another state road of impel tart io this section is No. 3 which is new being ha;. aced from Satsuma in Putnam county to the , isia county line be low Crescent City. Volusir twenty miles to De- Leon Springs is already graded and the money is on hand for the building of the hard surface or paving. This will afford a direct route to Palatka and Jacksonville without the necessity of making the long detour by way cf Daytona ar.d Ormond, saving at least forty miles between Jacksonville and Tampa. Within a year the state authorities will probably have leconstructcd much of State road No. 4 from Jacksonville to Miami so that the delegates to the Three As. will be enabled, after the sessions have been concluded, to motor over practically all of Florida. That the Amer ican Automobile Association is now concentrating on the Southeast is amply evident from the fact that so many counties in Florida and Georgia have organized as county meter clubs under direction and supervision of the A. A. A., the organization working toward the securing of better laws for motorists and the public, the rendering cf prompt and worth while service to the membership through designation of official garages, the posting of the highways, free legal service and a hundred and one other minor details with which every traveler is familiar. CONGRATULATIONS IN ORDER His associates in business, his friends every where, are rejoicing over the announcement that Isaac Van Horn of Haines City and Boston, who recently journeyed to Boston, wiil shortly return to Florida with Mrs. Isaac Van Horn. The wed ding cf Miss Emma Callahan cf Boston and Mr. Van Horn took place at the home of the bride two weeks ago. The honeymoon is being spent in New York and Atlantic City, the return to Polk county to be made a little later in the sum mer. With a charming wife to add inspiration to his achievements, still greater, things arc to be STEADY WORK • Prosperity of a city, a nation or an individual depends upon steady work. “Lay offs” cut down earnings at a tremendous rate. Likewise, not saving steady cuts down saving power. The best habit you can acquire is the savings habit. THE STATE BANK of LAKELAND 4 per cent, compounded quarterly on savings expected of a gentleman who has already accom plished so much in the development of Polk and whose heart and whole interest are in everything that will add to the prosperity and comfort of the people of this section of Florida. It is net to be wondered at that goed wishes and congratulations are the portion of Mr. and Mrs. Van Horn. HELPING FLORIDA GROW One of the newest Tampa organizations is the Melville Fertilizer Ccmprtny, with a capital stock of SIOO,OOO and the following officers: Bert M. Banker, president; Clarence W. Nelson, vice president’ Fremont C. Stevens, secretary-treasurer. W. A. Wilson, lessee of the new theater at Eusiis, plans to install one of the largest radio outfits in the state. The new city hall at Winter Haven, for which the Seymour-Craig Cos. are contractors, is to cost practically $30,000, and to he finished by De cember 15. Bonds for anew high school building at Pal metto sold at $104.36. As Others See It ONE OF FLORIDA'S NEEDS (Palatka News.) The greatest need in Florida today is that wo should have in circulation'a targe amount of money at a low rate of interest. The total as sesed valuation of Florida property at the present time is only about $30(1.000,000. This, we are told, is less than that of any other state in tiro Union. While these figures are somewhat misleading it remains true that the low assessment of valua tion has made the Northern capitalist somewhat afraid of our seciyities. The consequence of this lias been that there has been very little Northern money put into the hands of Florida people. Let us illustrate for a moment the effects of large sums of money at a low rate of interest on the development of a community. Los Angeles, Cali fornia was nothing hut a waste place in a desert. In a period of 20 years $200,000,000 of eastern money was put in circulation on a basis of 3 or (i per cent interest. During this period of time Los Angeles overtook San Francisc o and we may safely assert that the wonderful development of Southern California was made possible by the use of foreign money at a low rate of interest. We mention these things in this column for tile reason that at the present time there are several organizations seeking openings in South Florida with a view of placing a large amount of money within reach of the property owner at a low rate of interest and on long time loans. It is mani festly impossible for local banks to accommodate their customers with long time loans under pres ent conditions. The mortgage company must stop in, take a mortgage cm the property, issue bonds against the mortgage and sell the bonds and make the loans. We are glad to note that such movements are at hand and we believe that proper publicity in the matter and a hearty co operation on the part of the business men of the state-,will bring us this needed capital and make it available in a way that will cause South Florida and in fact all ef the state to develop at a rate that would exceed the development that was witnessed in Southern California. ALL EYES ON LAKELAND (Sanford Herald.) The business men of Lakeland will build a twelve story hotel down there and make it one of the finest in the state. They discussed the matter at a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce tiie other day and then started out to get the money and they will get the money and they will build the new .hotel ami it will help Lakeland* grow into a city of twenty-five thousand people ere long. They have the right spirit down there and they will do whatever they start out to do. dim Beeswax lias a grievous corn upon his snow white tee, and all day long his heard is torn, ho rends it in Ills woe. And when I pause be-id 3 his gate to pass the time e’day, he rails against the hitter fate that tortures him this way. He speaks not of the lovely morn, of flowers that scent tiie gale, but gives the facts about his corn, to every last detail. He does not note the land scape wide, the waving fields of grain, but tells of plasters he has tried, which failed to ease the pain. John Dorking is a cheerful gent who lives next door to me; his form by rheumatiz is bent, till it'3 a sight to see. All kinds of plain and fancy aches along his limbs career, and when from pain-racked dreams he wakes, lie smiles from ear to ear. He likes to talk of pleasant things, cf birds and buds and bees, and of the fragrant vine that clings to yonder pepper trees. He speaks of moonlight on the lakes, of streams by sunshiiie kissed, and when I a3k about his aches he says they don't exist. I dodge Jim Bees wax when I can, sidestep him every day, to visit with this breeay man who laughs his ills away. LAKELAND EVENING TELEGRAM, MONDAY, JULY 10, i922 Have the Paper Foliovv You!

A yard, 25c The Famous Department Store FROM OUR READERS To-The Evening Telegram: The Master, when here on earth, knowing the. deleterious effect of worry on'our physical-organism, ad monished us not to worry. He knew that worry kills quicker than work. For the great love He has for us, He said: "Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.” The gentler sex, after a lapse of almost two thousand years, has solved the problem of “what ye shall put on.” That leaves half of the problem yet unsolved—“what ye shall eat and what ye shall drink." This admonition that Christ handed to us, Intentionally for our good, may be susceptible of two constructions — not to worry about WHERE our grub is coming from, or else not to be too particular about making up a menu out of what grub we have. It must have been the latter that he had reference to, judging from the context, because he assures us that our Heavenly Father will feed us. He feeds the birds, and He con siders'us of more value than many sparrows. So he must have meant, that after God has provided the food for us. that we should not be too “finicky” about whether we shall eat this or that. In other days and in other places your humble scribe oftentimes was forced to worry about the quantity of the grub, but since coming to Florida he has now to worry over the KIND. He has trouble now to pick out WHAT he should eat. Hygienists say don’t use salt—that will produce arterio sclerosis. Don’t use meat —that tends to rheu ; matism. Don’t use miik—unless you’re a | baby—for nature never made it for 1 grown-ups. Don’t use white bread —it is defi icient in Vltamines. Don’t use sugar—that will produce ! fatty degeneration of the heart. Now, I’m in a helluva fix to know 'WHAT to eat. Here I am, like the mythological j Tantalus, surrounded by all the good things that God has so prodigally i provided for me, and yet I dare not I touch one of them. And in my des ! peration I cry out iike Paul of old, “O, wretched man that I am, who shall deliver me out of the bodv of this death.’’ LYNN C. DOYLE. Grantsville, Md., July 4, 1922. | Our Dear Friends of the Telegram and of Lakeland in General: So far we came through Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Caro lina, Virginia, Washington, D. C„ and are now nearly through Maryland. Some detours in Florida and Georgia gave us machine trouble, but not se rious. We have seen many more of Florida’s beauty spots and farming lands than known by us heretofore. Also by auto route we have seen miles of fine farm lands in Georgia. Fine peach orchards abound. A much more favorable impression of the Car linas was formed than heretofore ob tained, most especially of North Caro lina with her abounding fields of na tive crops and the thousands of acres of peach orchards. All travellers must observe the beauty spots that are being so readily improved by the hand of man. „ The Dominion state has its beau ties and great historical opots of the past and none cpn pass through Vir ginia without meditation on her past history, and as we were passing from Richmond to Washington we could not help but think of the once-hated cries of “On to Richmond!’ ’and "On to Washington!” and then, thanks to God, that the same are ■ said today with a great heart of Jove for each, and both as a united one in love for our Stars and Stripes that are flying at the front of our car here dn these Cumberland mountains over 2jho feet above sea-level. The day at our nation’s capitol can never be erased from mind, 'fo men tion all we cannot ask the paper to give space, but to say the trip by ele vator to the top of- Washington mon ument and take that panoramic view of gll Washington, D. C., and far be yond is beyond my description. The visit to the Pan-American, Lincoln's Memorial, the White House and Capi tol building, then that Red room and Blue room of the White House, that room of rooms where our greatest men meet to deliberate and meditate on the great questions of today and may our God ever hallow this holy place for humanity’s sake. Leaving Washington, we were soon in ■ Maryland and ( our “Lizzy” has brought us within 'three miles of Unlontown, Pennsylvania. As we have come up and down and around and around these most beautiful land scape spots of Nature’s beauty, we are thinking that only a real artist could appreciate fully the artistic beauty in all this. We expect to remain here for sev eral days in these rugged mountains with this healthful, bracing air. We would perhaps remain here only that we must go on to Ohio and Michigan. According to our routing, we are 232 miles from Columbus, Ohio. Ex pect as We pass Zanesville, Ohio, to detoir to Newark and in Licking coun ty to visit some friends and then to Columbus, Ohio, so we will bo looking for a bundle of the Telegrams waiting for us at that city. All real well. With our best to all, x MR. AND MRS. GEO. C. FIDLER. AND \ WALTER MDLER.
