Cove Springs. Mrs. Scaton expects to
build a beautiful home in Crescent City
next winter on the property fronting
Lake Crescent, next north of the Wil
liams grove, and which she purchased of
Hon. Wm. Ryan. It is one of the most
beautiful building sites in the place.
Rev. Father P. Barry of Palatka was
here on Tuesday making arrangements
for the building of the new Catholic
church, which will be a part of his
parish. Father Barry stated that he had
already ordered the brick for the build
ing. The plans show a church edifice
of pleasing design, and somewhat artis
tic. Father Barry expressed himself as
wonderfully well pleased at the success
of the recent church supper, and is en
tering into his work at this place with
great enthusiasm.
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel H. Wilson of
Utica, Ohio, who spent several days here

were so well pleased with the place that
they decided to make Crescent City
their winter home. Mr. Wilson pur
chased the Smith place out two miles on
Union avenue. This place consists of
about 20 acres of land and 400 trees.
There is also a large house on the place.
It is also Mr. Wilson's intention to build
a fine bungalow on one of our town lots
and Mr. M. H. Read has already selected
a beautiful location for them.
Mr. Eaton Cliff has made a suggestion
that the News trusts will appeal to many
of our winter residents. This is that they
get into the forthcoming U. S. census as
a part of Florida's population. Mr. Cliff
says that it is his purpose to do so; that
he has large property interests here, lives
here six months of the year and that he
feels he is a part and parcel of the state
of Florida. Mr. Cliff says that he ex
pects to leave for the north on the 16th
of April, but that as soon as he learns
who is to do the work of the census
here, he will apply to him to give in his
family and property statistics. The work
of the census will begin April 15th. Let
other winter residents and orange grove
owners consider this subject from Mr.
Cliff's viewpoint.
Mr. M. H. Read celebrated his 70th
birthday last Sunday, the 20th inst. On

small remembrances of the occasion, to
gether with their hearty congratulations.
Mr. Read has resided in Crescent City
almost continuously for the past 20 years
and has done his full part in the develop
ment of the place, both in the way of
improving his own property and talking
others into the notion of coming here to
settle. He is vice-president of the bank,
does a real estate business and talks
Crescent City all the time. May he live
long, and prosper.
The special services at the Methodist
church which were brought to a close
last Tuesday night, were not generally
so well attended as their importance de
manded, probably because of the great
number of special meetings previously
held at the other churches. The attend
ance Sunday night completely filled the
church, and the attendance at the week-
night meetings showed a steady growth
and increasing interest. Rev. How
ard Dutill of Palatka, who was In
charge of the meetings, is an eloquent
and impressive gospel pieacher, and his
series of sermons constituted a powerful
appeal to men to forsake sin and lead a
Christian life. It is doubtful if a series
of more intensely Interesting sermons
was ever delivered in Crescent City.
There is nothing of the sensational in
Mr. Dutill. He preaches the simple gos
pel and his appeals are to the head and
heart. There were several conversions,
but these alone do not measure the full
benefit to the community of his work
for the Master.
Card of Thanks.
The ladies in charge of the supper,
for benefit of the new Catholic church,
wish to tender their most sincere thanks
for the liberal patronage given by the
people in general in making it a success,
financially, as well is socially.

An M. 1. who In bis magisterial
capacity periodically visited a private
lunatic asylum told the story of a
man of some position Id the legal
world who went to see a patient who
had occasional lapses Into sanity. The
patient made a great Impression on
bis visitor as a well Informed, healthy
minded gentleman and was assured
that bis case should be Inquired into.
On leaving, the grateful patient
courteously conducted bis morning
caller to the front door, affectionately
pressing his band at parting.
"Yon won't forget what I've told
you," be pleaded, wltb tears In his
voice.
No," responded the visitor, turning
round to descend the rather long flight
of steps.
I don't think you will," said the pa
tient dreamily, "but lest you should
you know"

A Bird's White Feathers.
The occurrence of white feathers In
a bird's plumage is very common, it
Is, of course, due to lack of coloring
matter and Is liable to appear In both
young and old birds. 1 have known of
several old birds to exhibit this pe
culiarity (mostly In the wlDg feathers,
however), and It may be due to imper
fect nutrition and circulation as the
bird ages. 1 have also noticed It In
young birds In a number of Instances.
The phenomenon thus cannot be said
to occur simply as a result of old age,
but Is rather one of those slight
changes In the bird's system the
causes of which we do not know.
There Is this much more to be said,
however when a young bird starts
out with a few white feathers they
are usually retained throughout life.

ner. Old birds may exhibit this loss
of coloring at any time. St, Nicholas

W. L. Douglas trioes are the lowest
price, quality considered, in the world.
Their excellent style, easy fitting and
long wearing qualities excel those of
other makes. If you have been paying
high prices for your shoes, the next time
you need a pair give W. L. Douglas shoe
trial. You can save money on your
footwear and get shoes that are just as
good in every way as those that have
been costing you higher prices.
if you could visit our large factories
at Brockton, Mass and see for yourself
how carefully W. L. Douglas shoes are
made, you would then understand why
they hold their shape, fit better and
wear longer than other makes.
