The News is publishing this week a
most interesting sketch by James R.
Hill of Heudersonville, X. C, entitled
"A Legend of Lake Crescent." The
legend will have an added interest to
citizens of Florida residing in this sec
tion of the state and who are familial
with this beautiful sheet of water and
the country 'round. Mr. Iliil was for
merly a resident of Crescent City and
who became so enamored of that sec
tion that he now spends his vacation
months there with Mrs. Hill, w hose in
terest in this beautiful section of Florida
is not less than his own. The sketcli
was written for and published in a lead
Ing Pennsylvania paper and is repro
duced in the News by permission of its
author. Mr. Hill is a most entertaining
writer, a gift he seems to have more by
inheritance than cultivation. His brother
was formerly a well known Pennsylva

for much. The News trusts that the
author of this sketch may feel inclined
to make other interesting contributions,
more particularly if they shall delve into
the most interesting but little written ol

It Is perhaps worth recalling that

Introduced into Europe quite lata in
history. Flat cakes were baked even
In the earliest times, but as late as the
beginning of the nineteenth century
loaf bread was comparatively un
known in many parts of the continent
In 1812. for Instance, when an Eng
