The Florida East Coast Railway (Flagler System) with its system of magnificent hotels, nevef does things in a half-hearted way, and neither does it spare expense. The company ha, iust issued some advertising lit erature that is a dream of beauty. It is in pamphlet and folder form and is olored to look like artistic hand-paint- ing. These tell oi tne glories oi me East Coast of Florida in a way to bring tourists to a realization of the fact that they have never seen "Amer ica first" until they see the East Coast of Florida in the winter. The folder tells about Palatka and San Mateo and their hotel accommo dations. CHAS. DOUGHERTY AN APPRECIATION. The News has published several tri butes to the memory of the late Con gressman Charles Dougherty, but nothing more beautitul and truttuui than the following from the pen of Hon. Frank Clark, the eloquent and forceful congressman from the Second district: A few days ago from Daytona, the beautiful Florida city on the banks of the Halifax river, the spirit of Charles Dougherty winged its flight to the great be yond. Charles Dougherty was by birth a Georgian, by adop tion a Floridian, and at all times and under all conditions he was a Southerner of the truest type. Florida owes a great deal to Charles Dougherty. In the dark days of reconstruction he proba bly did as much as any of the pa triots of those days to drive from the seats of power the vandals who were despoiling our fair state. He was indeed "a tower of strength" to our sorely stricken and well-nigh helpless people in the mighty contest to restore lo cal self government, and earned for himself the soubriquet of The Tall Cypress of the Halifax. I knew him long and well, and never knew a manlier or more honorable man. He was the soul of honor the personification of truth. He hated sham and des pised hypocrisy. His word could always be depended on both in business and politics, and he was loyalty itself to his friends. He has gone to join Bloxham, Perry, Call, Raney, Davidson, Drew, Fleming and the rest of that glo rious band of knightly souls who redeemed Florida from the politi cal marauders who mis-governed and plundered her. Let us hope that "After life's fitful fever he . sleeps well." Satan's bests servants are people who love money and hate work. "QUALITY FIRST" Is Motto of the Firestone Company. When President H. S. Firestone of the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was asked concerning the new addi tions to the big plant at Akron, Ohio, he replied: "Our growth, no doubt, seems remarkable but more than any other force our rigid insistence on 'Quality First in everything connect ed with the manufacture of our tirej is responsible for our vast volume of business. We make the very best tire we know how. The best brains, the finest materials, the most painstaking efforts and the utmost care are used in pro ducing Firestones. The one idea of Quality is uppermost both in the fac tory and in the many places that of fer Firestone Service. "Naturally, the public is a factor in our increase, for motorists use Fire stones and realize that Quality is their foremost feature. The result U more orders and the factory grows that it may keep up with this demand a logical outcome, and one of which we are justly proud, for our plant is the world's largest tire concern. Quantity in production is excellent but when Quality goes hand in hand with Quantity, there is your ideal com bination. We feel very much grati fied in feeling that we are in possess ion of that combination." Price For Puffs. The editor of an eastern paper has grown peevish. He has been pestered so much by people desiring free puffs that he facetiously refers to himself as the "Peerless Prince of Puff Pur veyors." He thinks he 'has done enough for social queens, ministers who are looking for free advertising, people who have legislative fads they wish to push and organizations which want free publicity. So he has evolved the following scale of prices for puffs: For telling the public that a man is a successful citizen when every one knows that he is as lazy as a hired man, $2.70. Referring to a deceased citizen as one who is mourned by the entire com munity, when he will only be missed by the poker circle, $10.13. Referring to one as a hero and a man of courage and one who will stand by his honest convictions, when ev erybody knows he is a moral coward and would sell out for 30 cents, $6.21. Referring to some galivanting fe male as an estimable lady whom it is a pleasure to meet and know, when every man in town would sooner see Satan coming, $9.10." Calling an ordinary pulpit orator an eminent divine, $60. Sending a doughty sinner to heaven, $5. Referring to a deceased merchant who never advertised in his life as a progressive citizen, $4.98. Lambasting the daylights out of the demon rum at the request of the local prohibition committee, $6.77. Ditto for the prohibitionists at the request of the local wet committee, $6.77. CAPTURING A GIRAFFE. The Animal Is Too Fragile to Snare In Traps or Pitfalls. Perhaps you have often wondered about the scarcity of giraffes iu pub 11c zoos. The reason that only a verj few menageries can boast of this ex hibit is on account of the difficulty Iu capturing and trauspor".:ig tbeiu. The long legged anil long necked anl mal, keen of eye and nose and ear, can see, smell and hour a hunter mile away. Hunters niniiot employ trap and pitfalls against him. His fragile legs would be crushed in a trap, and both his legs and neck would be bro kfii in a pitfall. There is only one way to capture n giraffe alive. He must be surrounded and chased until from sheer wearmesf he staggers helpless into a bamboo in closure. Peril lies In shipping the giraffe f his voyage on the sea. The giraffe'!- legs break very easily. If he slips tin fragile underpinnings double undei him and snap. Iu transferring the iiui mal from shore to ship his long, help less neck may become taugled in tin tackle or strike a spar, mast or shroud in which event it's nil over with Mr Giraffe-Chicago Herald. "r-"J.--- ft J x - c JAMES R. MURPHY President'of Florida Farms & Homes, Inc., who gave the school at Kenwood to the Putnam County School Board. WHISTLER AT WEST POINT. He Loved Truth and Took Punishment Rather Than Lie. . 'At West Point was old Joe, the ne gro cadet hair cutter. He was never known to smile or to deviate from "regulations." Ouce a month cadets were obliged to have their bair cut by him. This was a great worry to Whis tler, who disliked to part with his pret ty locks, so he would try by cajolery and -flattery to have Joe let up a little on the length of his hair. But in this he was never successful. Joe would stop his shears in the midst of a re monstrance and say. "Mr. Whistler, do you want me to cut your bnlr accord ing to regulations or notV"' Of course this put an end to the argument, and Whistler would come back to our rooms, look in the glass and swear about Joe. He loved frankness, truth and honor. Cards were forbidden In cadet bar racks, but we had a pack, and one night long after "taps" (10 o'clock) wo had been playing, and the cards lay carelessly aside, when we were sur mised hv the entrance of the Inspect ing oflicer, who spied the cards. We knew that the offense was a serious nnp nirninst discinline and considered whether we could properly ask that the report should read "uaras in posses sion," a lesser offense. Instead of "Playlug cards," as we were not play ing when the Inspector saw us. ' Whis tler said. "No, we had been playing." so we faced the music and as punish ment lost our cadet furloughs for a summer. H. M. Lazelle in Century. DIDN'T QUITE DODGE. When the Elder Booth Tried to Escape a Man Who Bored Him. Thomas R. Gould admired the elder Booth almost to adoration. The most minute and instructive account that ex ists of Booth's acting was written by him a book tailed "The Tragedian" and Gould's marble bust of Booth, a no ble work of art (made before the come dian Flynn broke Booth's nose with a pewter pot), is the best likeness of that great actor. But Gould's assldious per sonal attentions to Booth became wearisome to that eccentric man and vexed him. Peculiar discretion is sometimes requisite to those who would praise and please eminent persons. Booth, when acting in Boston, custom arily lodged at an old hotel called the Albion, situated In Tremont street, at the northwest corner of Court street. "One day," said Edwin, "my father dashed into the bedroom where I was sitting and, almost breathless with haste, exclaimed: 'Gould! Coming upt Say I'm out." and literally dived under neath the bed. I received Mr. Gould, who seemed surprised not to find my father (I think he had seen him rush ing upstairs), and he talked with me for several minutes. Then there was a moment of silence, and my father, be coming impatient, thrust his head out from under the bed. Inquiring as he did so: " 'Is that Infernal bore gone yet? Imagine the effect!" Collier's Weekly. The Voracious Cormorant. How a cormorant dives for sea trout and gets them is told by a writer: "I had the cormorant under observation only for the space of four or live min utes, and during that short period it had captured four sea trout, all of con siderable size. After being under wa ter for a few seconds the bird would reappear with a sea trout wriggling in its bill. But In spite of the victim's desperate efforts to escape it was deft ly swallowed, and after a few gulps the cormorant would resume Its Ash ing operations. One of the sea trout gave it considerable trouble, however, for the fish struggled violently for some moments, but was deftly placed so that its head pointed down Its rap tor's throat, and thus Its own strug gles assisted the bird to swallow it" Precise Boarding Mistress "Mr. Blunt, shall I tender you some more of the chicken?" Mr. Blunt "No, thank you! But if you can tender this piece you have already served me I shall be greatly obliged to you." i1 o 4 , A .1
