Under the above heading the Plant
City Arrow of last week thus refers
to P. M. Hagan, formerly deputy
sheriff of Putnam county, whd is now
Deputy United States Marshal:
"Pete Hagan great big, good na
tured, jolly fellow that he is certain
ly makes a success as deputy United
States marshal under U. S. Marshul
J. C. . Brown, at Jacksonville. Pete
Hagan seems to be like a poet, born
for the job, not made. He has filled
various and sundry positions in Put
nam county, where his bravery and
his ingenuity were put to the test,
and he has never failed to score.
"Pete" was in Plant City recently on
business for our "Uncle Samuel,"
and called on the Arrow. Ye editor
was but a short while ago associated
with Pete Hagan as deputy United
States marshal at Jacksonville, filling
a temporary appointment, and ha3
occasion to know of his ability, integ
rity and popularity. We would not
be surprised to hear that Pete Hagan
had been drafted to even something
better in his own county of Putnam,
sooner or later. We learn that he is
missed very much since moving to
Jacksonville and that Pete is never
happier than when going back among
his friends in old Putnam on official

Palatka and who has a deep interest
in the growth of the surrounding
Waverly, Neb., April 9th, 1914.
Editor Palatka News: I read what
was in your paper about the move
ment to secure a county agricultural
expert or advisor, and wish to endorse
it as I do Mr. Von Engelken's letter
on that subject. There is sore need
of some one well advised in agricul
ture to aid the farmers of Putnam
County with good advice. It is not
likely that any expert pretends to
know it all; he learns from everyone
he visits and carries the good ideas
from one to another. I have some
property in Putnam County and hope
some day to get down there and make
that country my home. I am always
willing to take advice.
I hope that a County Fair Asso
ciation may be successfully organized
and repeat the success of last De
cember, which was an eye-opener to
everyone who visited it.
Palatka is a good town and locat
ed as it is on a navigable river it
ought to grow as well as the country
all about it. I am glad to know that
Palatka has an active Board of
Trade, something every live town has
now-a-days. W. D. MARSHAL.
Deserved ApprovaL
Secretary Folsom of the Board of
Trade is in receipt of the following
letter from Prof. C. L. WUloughby,
which speaks for itself:
On my recent inspection trip with
students of the College of Agricul
ture in your section, I was very much
impressed with the lessons that can
be learned at the dairy operated by
Mr. John M. Park of East Palatka,
and would like to mention this to
you in this way with the idea that the
point might otherwise pass unnotic
The modern demand in daily wnrk
is for clean milk. Waen this demand
first came it was thought that milk
with a low content of bacteria could
be produced only in costly barns with
concrete floors and steel fixtures. La
ter investigation shows that there is
more in the method of doing the work
in the barn and dairy than in the
equipment, and that any dairyman
with comparatively cheap equipment
and barn can, if he desires, produce
high grade milk with small number
of germs.
The barn and dairy as operated by
Mr. Park of your city is a good exam
ple of clean methods with modest
equipment. I have no doubt that the
bacterial content of the milk from his
herd would show very low. I found
that he was keeping his barn, stalls
and cows so clean that any one could
work there without soiling even their
Sunday suit. He is removing the ma.
nure and storing it in a properly
constructed pit. With the aid of his
wife he is keeping the dairy room
sweet and clean with proper washing
methods, and is using a very excellent
cooler and aerator and a proper am
ount of ice for cooling the milk a
short time after it is drawn from
the cows.
These few points are essential in
producing the best milk; clean con
ditions as to cows and stable, and
then cool it properly immediately af
ter milking and keeping it in cool sto
rage until delivered to the customers.
I think Mr. Park deserves to have the
patronage of your people, and suc
C3ed with his work.
Verv truly yours,

Palatka Pastor Receives Call
Rev. P. Q. Cason the popular pastor
of the First Baptist church in this city
has received a call to the pastorate of
the church in West Palm Beach, one
of the most prosperous churches of
his denomination in Florida. Mr. Ca.
son is considering the call.
But the reverend gentleman said to
the News: "Yes, it is true I have re
ceived this call, and I am now consid
ering it, but my relations with the
church in Palatka have been so pleas
ant and the church is in such a pros
perous condition, that I would be loth
to leave a work so agreeable, and
where there is such harmony between
the workers. I do not think that I
shall accept the call. Palatka is gooj
enough fro me."
"Fi Fi" Draws the Multitude.
Kalbfield's Grand never contained
a bigger audience than that which
turned out to see the musical extrava
ganza, "Fi Fi," last night. The play
was given in the interests of the
Philatheas and Baracas of the First
Presbyterian church. The News goes
to press too early to prepare an ac
count of this pretty affair, it can only
echo the word of thanks of the mem
bers of the Presbyterian church to the
people for their patronage and en
dorsement The play was a most
pronounced success from every angle
at which it is regarded.

History of the Saw.
The earliest tool Unit baa been traced
In Egyptian history is the saw. It was
found first In the form of a notched
bronze knife in the third dynasty, or
about 5,000 years before the Christian
era, and was followed in the fourth

s: .vs. which were used by carpenters,
b it there are no dated specimens until ,
the seventh century before the Chris

saws. The first knives on record were
made out of flint and were. In fact,
saws with minute teeth. They prob
ably were used for cutting up animals,
as the teeth would break away even
on soft wood. Rasps, which are but
a form of saw, were first made of
sheets of bronze punched and colled
