The Easter services both in the Sun day school and church were full of in terest, The Sunday school reached the highest mark in attendance for three years. It has increased thirty per cent in three months. Mr. E. M. Earnest is making a fine superintendent. Under his leadership every interest of the school is taking on new life.

' Mr. Curry on Commissionership To the Democratic Voters of 2nd Com missioners District of Putnam County Allow me to call your attention to some considerations which seem to me important regarding the office of Coun ty Commissioner from this district. first, ino one man. more than anv other has any right to the office based nis personal wisncs, privileges or nancial condition. It docs not matter to the people why or who should want tne ollice. it must and will be filled bv somebody and it should be done with out personal solicitation on the part of the candidate, i'.very vole so obtained carries with it a certain amount of obli gation on (he part of the candidate so liciting, to cater to the personal interest of such vole when elected if asked so to do. Second. The office offering as it does, practically nothing in the way of remuneration or honors, is peculiarly one of service to the public good, and only the question of fitness for that ser vice should be regarded; neither friend ship nor enmity should be a factor in the decision as to who should be voted for. Third. Pre-election promises and personal representations by any candi date for this office arc both absurd and impossible absurd because n o sane man who is fit to fill the position wants for what there is in it, and impossible, because no man knows what he can do should do, being onlv one of five. nless of course he undertakes to fill promises made to personal friends re gardless of the public good. He may promise to do or have done that which 12 months would not be for the best terests of his district or county. Cues ons which involve the expenditure of public funds should not beaded upon according to promises made before the lection out according to circumstances nd conditions, present and prospective, nd for the best interests of the whole county. So friends, I hope no man will vote for me in the coming primary from mo ves of friendship only, or refrain from oling for opposite reasons. If elected 1 will do my best for the public good and I want to assure every one thai officially I will have no foes to nish or friends to reward. I wish to thank very sincerely those of my friends who have expressed them selves as satisfied that I could and would serve my district honestly and faithfully, and I assure them that in deserving that opinion will lie my chiefest satisfaction and highest reward. Sincerely yours, A. D. Curry. Palatka, April lUlh, 1912. Tax Notice . I will be at the following places for the purpose of assessing taxes: Bostwick, May 1st and 2nd. San Mateo. May 6th. Orange Mills, May 7ih. Federal Point, Mav 8th. East Palatka, May lOih. G. F. BI LLARD, Tax Assessor. Toomer was followed by Charles E. Jones, who spoke In behalf of Claude L, Engle, also a candidate for congress man at large, and Mr. Jones was fol lowed by Braxton Beacham, candidate for the same position. The presiding officer Ihcn inlraduced Mr. Clark, but nir. 1,1am aid not come forward. After .satisfying himself that Mr. Clark was not on the slage, Dr. Warren enquired if Mr. Clark was in the audience. There was still no response lo tbe call for Mr. Clark. Dr. Warren then introduced Mr. Hilburn as the next speaker on the program. Mr. Hilburn stated that Mr. Clark had been on the slage at the open ing of the evening's speaking; that at Green Cove Springs Monday evening an agreement had been reached between them which was to apply specifically at the Green Cove Springs, Palatka and Crescent City meetings. It had been agreed, Mr. Hilburn said, that they were to have an hour each at that meet ing and subsequent meetings: that they were to alternate as to the opening and closing addresses. He, Mr. Hilburn, was to speak first at Green Cove Springs, Mr. Clark was to speak first at Palatka and Mr. Hilburn was lo speak first at Crescent City, and that this program was to be followed out throughout the campaign. In accordance with this agreement. Mr. Hilburn said that he bad spoken first at Green Cove Springs and Mr. Clark had followed him. When Mr. Clark came upon the platform Tuesday evening Mr, Hilburn greeted hijn and a conversation followed as to the terms of the debate, Mr. Clark insisting upon the closing address. Mr. Hilburn reminded Mr. Clark of .the Green Cove Springs agreement. Mr. Clark denied that there had been j,ny such agreement. Mr. Hilburn returned to his seat on the plat form and subsequently Mr. Clark retired from the stage. Mr. Hilburn concluded his statement by saying that be was willing to yield to Mr. Clark's demands, and would make the opening argument if Mr. Clark's friends would go and find him and bring bim back; if Mr. Clark did not in tend to speak, Mr. Hilburn said that he didn't think it would be courteous for him to speak, and would not do so. I. vv. acars was tben introduced and spoke in behalf of tbe candidacy of John W. Watson for governor. At the conclusion of Mr. Scars' address, Mr. Clark not having reappeared, Dr. War ren adjourned the meeting. It transpired that Mr. Clark had re turned to his hotel and had addressed a communication to tbe chairman of the meeting slating his side of the controv ersy, which was to the effect that there had been no such agreement as Mr. Hilburn claimed, and that courtesy re quired that he, (Clark) be given the closing speech. At the conclusion of Ihc meeting Mr. Hilburn made a state ment for publication setting forth sub stantially the matter as he did in his statement to the audience. A joint discussion between the two candidates having been advertised for Crescent City the next day, Wednesday, the two appeared there. Mr. Clark opened in an address of an hour and forty-five minutes, and Mr. Hilburn was forced for want of time to close in a very short address. Mr. Clark returned to Palatka upon the completion of his Crescent Citv speech, and held a meeting of his own at the Orpheum Wednesday evening, at which ur. A. M. steen presided. He spoke to a large audience, and took up considerable time In explaining his side of the joint discussion controversy. He scored Mr. Hilburn throughout his speech. Among other things he said that the account of the Palatka affair of Tuesday evening had been written by J. Hugh Reese, who is assisting Mr. Hilburn in his campaign. Mr. Reese denies Mr. Clark's statement, and says it is merely in keeping with other mis statements and misrepresentations that Mr. Clark is in the habit of making. The article in question was written by D. A. Potts, the regular correspondent of tbe Jacksonville Metropolis, at this place. Johnson Notes. A charming Easter service was held at the Johnson church, followed by a picnic dinner on the grounds, then an afternoon service. The church, very prettily decorated, was filled with peo ple from all the neighboring towns.
