Who Are About to Retire
. From Council.
To the Retiring Aldermen:
Gentlemen: Knowing that your term
in the city council is almost expired, llie
members of Palatka Woman's Club de
sire me to thank you for all your valua
ble co-operation and courteous consider
ation of any suggestions they have prof
fered during the past year, regarding tho
beautifying of our city.
Palatka's progress during 1909-10 is
ample proof of the ability and enterprise
of the "men at the wheel." We con
gratulate you and echo the praise you
have so nobly earntd.
May the many improvements you have
wrought serve as inspiration to your suc
cessors. Recording Secretary.
"Owed" to Retiring Aldermen.
A young lady, prominent in the social
life of the city and among the more act
ive in the work of the Woman's Club in
its efforts to beautify the city, has set t
the News the following tribute to the
retiring members of the city council:
Now your term is expired, with enthu
siasm fired, your successors stand in
Philisophical as Plato only
much more up to date, oh!
As aldermen to shine.
Palatka surely gathers some splendid
city fathers, as its progress goes to
We know in 1910 that these energetic
men, will keep the ball youv'e started
on the move.
New Candidates.
Mr. Henry S. McKenzic makes his an
nouncement in this issue of the News
as a candidate for representative in Ihe
legislature. Mr. Mckenzie is the son of
Hon. H. A. B. McKenzie, editor of the
Times-Herald and one of Ihe present rep
resentatives from this county, who de
sires to retire in favor of his son. Hen
ry S. McKenzie is one of the best young
men in Palatka, an impression that is
made upon all who meet him. He was
raised in Putnam county and is known
to the larger part of the people by rea
son of his association with his father in
the conduct of the Times-Herald.
Mr. E. B. Perry of the Melrose sec
tion, makes his announcement as a can
didate for County Commissioner from
the fifth District. Mr. Perry is one of
the most substantial men in the county,
big in brain and heart, and of undoubted
common sense notions regarding the
conduct of the county's business. He is
a successful farmer and enjoys the con
fidence and esteem of the people of his
section in a remarkable degree. His
candidacy has been urged for some
time by his neighbors and close friends,
but this is a matter Mr. Perry preferred
not to say much about. He made up his
mind to be a candidate, and will go after
the office in real earnest.
D. Williams, the well-known orange
grower and farmer of McMcekin, also
bas his announcement in tots edition as
a candidate for County Commissioner
from the tilth District. Mr. Williams
has lived in Florida all his life and in
Putnam county since soon after the close
of the war. Mr. Williams is a Confed
erate veteran who went to the fiont
from Monticello, Jefferson County, and
served throughout the war. He has also
been a good soldier in peace and has
been a successful farmer. He also had
a thorough business training in the ear
ly day, a training that has stood him in
good stead since. He is an expert ac
countant, and for a time was book-keeper
for Gay Bros, in this city. Mr. Wil
liams once served as a member of the
board and made a good record. He is
well-known to the people. Should he
be elected the affairs of the county will
be in safe and competent hands.
Household Economics in School.
At one of the recent lectures and
cooking demonstrations given by Miss
Agnes Harris, ot the state college lor
women, in this city, was a much inter
ested school committee headed by
County Superintendent Tucker and
Prof. Stephens ot the Palatka High
Said one lady prominent in the work
of the Womans club, and a hustler for
everything calculated to push Palatka to
the front as an ideal home city:
Many women of this city arc anxious
to see a course in Household Economics
added to the curriculum of Ihe high
school, and as a natural result of the
progressive wave in Palatka, a new
school building proposition is slowly
but surely growing. It will be the pur
pose of the Woman's club to assist in
the installation of such a department.
This is a subject that has been of great
interest to many people for several
years, and Palatka needed and had been
waiting for Miss Harris to come and
awaken the people to the fact that in
order to keep in line of progress with
the rest of the world, we must devote
some thought to this subject. Miss
Harris has stirred our women to enthu
siasm, and we are grateful for the good
accomplished through her lectures and
to the president of the W omans College
at Tallahassee for permitting her to
come to us.

A Fine Trip, but Excuse Us.
A vealy young man called at this of
fice on Wednesday and left an invitation
for the editor to attend a lecture he is to
deliver at the Howell Theater tonight,
the subject of which he announced as
"To Hell and Back."
The trip may be safe and enjoyable,
but, all things considered, the editor
prefers not to take it. There is danger
of getting left even on a 'round trip
The lecturer signs himself Walter H.
Bundy, V. D. M., a "degree" that is a
new one on us. We had heard ot the
P. D. Q. The lecturer hails from the
"Brooklyn Tabernacle" so-called, and a
name that is a trifle misleading to mem

"tabernacle" is headquarters of the Mil
lennial Dawn Propaganda, a society that
has already fixed the beginning of the
millennium for October 'stecnth, 1914,
at 2:30 g. m., a date which every sane
man in Palatka knows is too previous.
