That it is the desire of the people
of Florida to have a complete system
of hard-surfaced highways, preferably
brick, is quite evident from the result
of the special district bond election
held in Putnam county on Tuesday,
The election was carried by an over
whelming majority. The amount 10
be spent is $208,000, and if this mon
ey is wisely expended, the eastern
section of Putnam county will be able
within a couple of years to boast of
brick-paved highways leading to all
important communities. Palatka will
be the center from which these brick
roads will radiate to San Mateo, Hast
ings and Federal Point. There is al
so included on the program the pav
ing of the road to Rice Creek in the
direction of the Clay county line along
the western shore of the at. Johns.
The result of the election is pecu
liarly of interest to St. Johns county,
in that it means when the work in
Putnam is completed and the one-mile
stretch in St Johns from the present
brick highway in Hastings to the Put
nam county line is also finished, there
will be a continuous brick road from
the St Johns county line at Duval
right through to Palatka. This wil'
be a great benefit to Palatka, and

More Girls in High School.
The percentage of children in a
closely populated city who advance to
high school, or even complete the
grammar grades, is relatively small.
It is smaller for boys than it is for
girls. One reason for the increas

ers is the larger number of girls who
remain in school long enough to re

The Nev York high schools gradu

In Chiigo, two girls graduate for

portijjl is even greater, because of the
nveat commercial high school, exclu
sively for girls, which turns out year
ly 400 graduates. The Philadelphia
Board of Education established a
school of pedegogy for boys as a rival
to its magnificent normal school for
girls in the hope, that it would at
tract more young men to the teach
er's profession. It has not accom
plished this. Notwithstanding the
fact that the young pedagogues start
with a considerably higher salary than
the girls from the normal school, the
schoolmarms in the Quaker City are
still increasing and a few of them are
receiving salaries closely approaching
those paid to men.

Clarence Poe, who edits the Pro

in the United States, is sure cotton

He argues that if a seventeen million

time at ten cents that a ten million

or a twelve million crop snouiu oe
worth all of twelve cents.
Mr. Poe thinks every farmer should
hold his cotton. He argues that the
crop is from three to five million bales
short of the actual needs of the world,
and that every single bale of this sea
son's crop will be consumed, in addi
tion to millions of bales from last
year's surplus.
The difference in price between ten-
cent cotton and twelve-cent cotton is
a matter of a quarter of a billion dol
lars to the farmers of the South, and
Mr. Poe is sure that his plan will
save that enormous sum to the farm
ers. He urges that cotton seed will
briner hieh prices, and that if the
farmers of the South will hold their
staple, the higher price for cotton is

1 1 Succese Hange on the Batter Hit
ting the Ball to the Ground.
TUi' squeeze play is one of the pretti
est in baseball when successful. When,
it tubs no piny makes u bull team look
uioic foolish. The play is best worked
n iili one out. a luuiicr uu third and a
iuu needed to either t.e or win the
KUine. .Many of the best base runners
when :i lioui to make lhe play create
lhe impressUm that there is no inten
tion of pulling it by taking only a fair
lead oil' I In- base and standing still.
The very imuuriit the pitcher starts
his uovcuiciit the man on third tears
for the iliiie.
If in any way the intention to use
ilic p.ay is tifipcd off or foreseen It is
uu easy matier for the catcher to
break il up by culling for a waste ball
Ihat is so wide of the plate that it is
impossible for lhe batter to bunt IL It
is uu easy mailer to touch the base
i-ii unci' out and make the team trying
lhe squeeze appear ridiculous. But a
siiei essl'ul completion of the play usu
ally puis the team in the field In the
air and makes them look equally fool
ish. , "
The squeeze pluy does not call for a
hard hitler or a good hitter, but It
does call for a man with a good eye, a
fellow who invariably hits the ball,
even though it may not go safe. If
lhe batsman limits the ball tn the air
an easy double play Is usually the re
sult, if he is able to keep the ball oa
lair ground there Is seldom a chance
to stop the run at the plate. It is not
necessary to have a fast man on third
to make this play, for most tif the play
depends on the ability of the batsman,
to keep the hull on the ground. Billy
Kvaus in St. Mcboiu-.
