VICKERS, Mayor. Children's Medal Contest. Tlie Palatka Womnn's Christian Temperance Union is doing a trrand work in bt.hall of the children of this city. That much was evidenced by tlie interest manifested by the chil dren in tlie medal contest nt. the Opera House last Monday evening. Fully two-thirds of the audience was com posed of children. The at tendance netirly filled the hall. The exercises consisted principally of Instrumental and vocal music, and recitations by children. The ''color scheme" of the entire program was temperance. Tlie stage was decorated beautifully with ever greens and gn at write ribbons the latter being the emblem of the union. Thnt the audience apprtciated the efforts of the children was demon strated by the hearty applause which greeted eacli number, both musical uml declamatory. . 1 lie following Is the program as rendered : Welcome Hong by nine girls.

Johnnie Boy Tilghman and Louis Lead) were heartily applauded and responded to encore. Warner Hamm's violin solo was also re ceived with great applause. The solos of Mr. Vickers and Mrs. Stewart were the only parts taken by adults, and they, always favorites with Palatka people, received the usual commendatory applause. The ladies of tlm W. C. T. U. nr. to be commended for their efforts in behalf of the children. Heretofore there has been but little organized work along the line of temperance education of children in the county. In fact the moral side of tlie liquor question hns been neglected. II this had not bsen the case we would not now be hearing such expressions as "prohibition cannot be enforced." Prohibition, like any law made for mankind, will be enforced when its violations are against the decided sentiment of a community. Ibis a hopeful sign for the future of the republic that the public schools have generally taken up the study of bygeue and physiology in which a large space is given to the effects of iilcohulic beverages on tlie humuu system. This work coupled with instruction on the moral side in a manner to interest the children as is now being done by the good ladies of Palatka will result iu a generation of total abstainers and they are the sort of people to make and enforce prohibition. Prohibition U a perfect law. The ' only trouble witli its application is that mankind Is imperfect. Moral Suasion should always precede and not follow legal suasion.

The game of base bull nt the park on Wednesday afternoon between the Crescent City and homo clubs was one of the most interesting piny ed here in recent years. This is es pecially true of the last half of tlie" game, when the playing became fast. The line up of the clubs was as fol lows : Crescent City Miller, ss ; C. Nor ton, c: Wilson, If ; Reed, 2 b and p; Gautier, cf ; Vnrups, p and 2 b; Clark, rf; Carrier, 1st b; Chamberlin, 3d b. Palatka Thomas, 1st b; Merrill o; Hayes, 2 b; It. Philips, ii h; L. Phil ips, cf; Collins, p; Lowe, If; Dever eux, ss, Lawrence (Gable) rf. The home team made two runs in the first inning and maintained its lead up to the eight, when the visi tors turned the tables and led by one run. This was the tatns of the game when Crescent City completed its half of the ninth inning. When Pal atka went to but .the excitement of -the grand stand was intense and the air .was rent with screeches from the rooters for both sides. Then Palatka made a score, ticing the game", but one man was out and two were on bases. The cry went up "liable is nt the bat!" This boy let two brills pass tlie plate till one same tli at suited him. Then he "swiped" it, sending a hot liner near the ground to center, lotting in the win ning run and euding the game. The game was good uatured throughout, ami there were many brilliant plays on both sides Dan S.inford, as umpire, was called upon to make many close decisions, but his fairness was never questioned. His judgements were quick. For tlie visitors Miller, Wilson, Norton, Carrier, Varnes and Reed were most conspicuous for good plays. Varnes pitched two linings: and retired hi favor of Reed, who was harder to hit and who pitched much better than in revlous games Collins, who was in the t)ox for Palatka, did not pitch his usual game. He was much easier to locate than formerly. His work, however, was much superior to that of his op ponent. Each of the home players distinguished themselves by a bri 11 biiit. play here and there through the game, but the credit of the winning run is by common consent given to Gable. May his shadow never grow less. The attendance was good, specta tors filling two-thirds of the grand stand. Crescent City sent a large delegation of routers, principally la dies and young girls, all practiced vocalists. If some of t hem have sore throats today it should not. be sur prising. The local contingent of finis and rooters were not vocally de ficient. In fact, voice culture was everywhere and always apparent on the stand. Visited Die Ball Park.

Pneumonia is too dangerous a disease for anyone to attempt to doctor hlm seif, although he mav have the proper remedies at hand. A physician should always be called. It should be borne In mind, however, that pneumonia always results from a coid or from an attack of the grip, and by the proper treatment of these diseases a threatened attack of pneumooia may be warded off. There is no question whatever about this, as during the thirty years and more that Chamberlain's Cough Kemedy has been used, wo have yet to learn of a single case of a cold or attack of the grip hav ing resulted In pneumonia when this remedy was usod. It is also used by physicians in the treatment of pneumo nia with 'the best results. Ir. W. i. Smith, of Sander-, AU.. who is also a ilrugclst, says of it : "I hi;v been sell ing Chanihurlalu's Cough Kemedy and prescribing it In my practice for the past six years I nse it in eses of pneumo nia and liav always gotten the best re sults."
