How Palatka Grow.
Postmaster D. M. Kirby, who has Just
closed another official year in the Pa
latka postoffice, and his twelfth year as
postmaster in this city, furnishes some
information in his annual report that
ought to irove encouraging to every
Palatkan. Here are some of the figures:
The receipts of the postoffice for the
quarter ending March 31st, 1910, were
$4,023.00 the biggest business in the
history of the Palatka postoffice.
For the year ending March 31st, 1910,
the receipts of the office showed an in
crease of $1,359 over the former year.
The receipts of the office for the first
year of Mr. Kirby's incumbency 12
years ago were a little more than $7,
000. The total receipts for the year ending
March 31st, 1910, were $14,300 double
the receipts of 12 years ago.
During Ihe year just ended there has
been paid out about $65,000 in postal
money orders, and about the same
The postmaster is very proud of these
figures, as he has a right to be. They
indicate, fully as well and possibly bet
ter than anything else could, the steady
growth of Palatka.
Mr. Kirby hasn't said it in so many
words, but knowing the man and his
love of neatness and orderliness in busi
ness methods and his appreciation of
suitable surroundings in which to do
business, it is fair to presume he feels
keenly the need of a better, more suita
ble postoffice building.
His increased business demands better
quarters -something in keeping with
the spirit of progress which now domi
nates the business men of Palatka. And
then Mr. Kirby's long, efficient and
faithful service for the government has
earned him a better, larger, modern
equipped office in which to transact
business, as well as would afford belter
accommodations for the public.
Last Friday the domestic science de
partment of the Woman's Club, under
the chairmanship of Mrs. S. J. Hilburn
held a very interesting meeting in the
club rooms. A motion was made and
passed, to meet every Saturday at 4 p. m.,
now that the days are growing longer
and warmer. All those interested in
this line of work arc cordially invited to
attend these meetings Press Reporter.
Bond Trustees Let Contract.
The board of trustees for Putnam
county bonds, while in session on Wed
nesday awarded the contract for con
structing the new hard road from Fran
cis to Keuka to Mr. J. H. Wylie of Inter-
lachen. There were several bids, but
Mr. Wylie's tender, to build the road of
mixed clay and sand, or gravel, at $1,00
per mile was regarded the lowest and
Alt the bids for constructing the road
from Palatka to Bostwick were rejected,
and the county engineer was instructed
to readvertise for new bids.

To the Ed tori
Will you kindly give me space to say
a few words in favor of the candidacy
of Mr. J. Hammontree, who desires to
be elected commissioner tor district No.

Hammontree all his life and knows him
to be a man of splendid character. He
has the ability to do the work and no
man in the district has a cleaner record.
It is to be hoped that the democrats of
the district will give him a hearty sup
port. A FRIEND.

Will Interest The Boys.
There will be a match game of base
ball at the ball grounds to-morrom (Sat
urday) afternoon between Western
Bloomer Girls" and a nine composed of
young men of Palatka. -Interest
in Ihe game will not center so
much in the excellence of the playing as
in the fact that the visiting nine is com
posed of girls, and that they wear bloom
ers. Twenty-five cents is really a small
mount to pay for seeing such a game.
For County Commissioner.
Mr. M. A. Baker of Keuka, is the
latest aspirant for a seat on the next
board of county commissioners from the
Fifth district, and his announcement
will be found in this paper. Mr. Baker
is one of the very best citizens of his
