PAGE NO. FOUR THF PAT.ATKA VWWS. PALATKA. FLA Th ePalatkaNews and Advertiser. Entered at the Palatka postoffice as Bailable matter of the second class. Published at Palatka, Florida, on Fridays by RUSSFXL & VICKERS. Jl.CO Per Year in Advance inspector reported him. Suspension followed, and then there was a long- season of sorrow in the Metcalf home. The family withdrew from all social intercourse; they felt that they had been disgraced, and being innocent of wrurg made the seeming disgrace all the harder to bear. Now comes the Murder at Gainesville. The mutilated body of F. C. Avery, a well-known horseman, was found buried in a stable on the Fair Grounds at Gainesville on Tuesday, where it had laid since just after the recent Alachua County Fair. His murderer has confessed. He 117 South Second St. Phone 195. Wm. A. RUSSELL. Editer. Miami is plugging for a national school of aviation wants to be among the high flyers.

God b'esj 'em and give 'em strength to ho':d them up high alway. William Jennings Bryan and other influentials,. it is J. Hugh Reese and Clarence Woods, according to the Gainesville Sun, had adjoining rooms at the White House in that city during the meeting of the Central Highway Association last week. There was no clash, but there Was a coolness. Rubbing it 'v.: The dry campaign committee over in Marion county, where they won a notable victory a couple of weeks ago, sent a letter of congratulation to the anti-prohibition orator who came down from Chicago to oppose them, thanking him for his assistance in helping them win the victory. We like the way He speaks his views Bill Russell, of Palatka News. Tampa Tribune. But what is more important to "Bill" is to have Lambright like his I "views. the Lambright-tribune en dorsement would be worth acquiring. The Earl of Rosebery, who is some punk in Britain, has been making sport of our Henry says of his peace party: "It is headed by a gentleman named Ford, who makes, I think, per ambulators." His ludship would think they were perambulators if he could see 'em some day about high noon speeding through the streets of any of our American cities. Senator Ben Tillman of South Car olina has taken his pitchfork for use in the present congress. He is going to use it in pitching our anti-admin istration Heresies, tie is also going to poke its prongs into some of those Big Iidians like Roosevelt, whom he calls a "veritable Bull of Cashan, who poses as a god of war and clamors for a very large standing army and great reserve." Old Yuan Shi Kai has "reluctantly" accepted the throne of China. The telegram telling of his reluctance sounds very much like the average Florida candidates announcment, when he enters the race "at the earn est solicitation of numerous friends." Politics is the same everywhere, though over in China Yuan is going to postpone his coronation until he thinks the danger of losing his head is passed. The Tampa Sunday Tribune was some paper of 80 pages, all made in Tampa. It was a pre-Christmas edi tion and was filled with timely matter of a high class, there being contribu tions from many of Florida's leading public men, including one from Gov. Park Trammell on "Florida First." The news section was filled with all that is best and brightest in modern journalism. The Tribune is without question the greatest daily in all Florida excelling in each and every department. The Ocala Star says that "the pros perity of Putnam county under prohi. bition was an object leson that the Marion county 'drys' did not fail to use as an argument." There is a difference certainly between the'Ta latka of the open saloon days and the Palatka of these days of the "blind tiger" outlaw; and it is all in favor of the outlaw, who is with us always in some guise, whether it be booze selling or petty larcenist; prohibition is certainly preferable, even if it docs develop the criminal side of an occa sional man. said, are moving to have Mr. Metcalf reinstated as postmaster. The December number of The New Florida was issued this week from the offices of the Florida Farms & Homes, Inc., of this city, and like its proceed ing numbers of the past sevend years is filled with interesting articles con cerning farm progress in Marion and Tutnam counties, where the lands of the company are located. New Flor ida is one of the most potent forces for development ever sent out from this city. It goes largely to men who have their eyes on Florida with a de sire to make this State home. When they read of the successes of men al ready here and see the beautiful illus trations of those successes made from actual photographs, it is expected that these will help them to a wise de cision to come where the sun shines and life is worth living 365 days in the year. President Murphy of the Flori da Farms & Homes, Inc., has been extremely fortunate in securing as ed. itor of The New Florida Mr. M. P. Walsh, a gentleman of wide experi ence in newspaper work, long mana ging editor of the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle, and a journalist who knows how to get real development facts to set before his readers and place them in an attractive style. INTERLACHEN NEWS. Mr, and Mrs. Thorburn, Master Robert Thorburn, and Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Needham motored to St. Au gustine Friday, spending the day very pleasantly, sight-seeing in that interesting city. Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Schooler, and Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Baker, all of Ohio, arrived last Saturday and have taken apartments in the Holford cot tage for the season. Mr. and Mrs. Jos. L.

Christmas Shoppers. In a four-column communication to the people of the city and county, pub lished in this paper the Earnest Com pany, department store, calls atten tion to many desirable bargains all suitable as Christmas gifts to mem bers of the household. It is only by looking these suggestions over that the averageican t-think-what-to-ouy Christmas shopper can find what he wants. Left to himself or herself, they would rursh off at the last mo ment and buy the first thing they saw without regard to its suitableness. That's one reason whv it will pay anv one to read the Earnest advertisement. Someone with n eye to the fitness of things has suggested the Hon. J. N. Whitner of Sanford as thhe "very man for Commissioner of Agricul ture." Now let the nominations close; Whitner is the very man for the 'place. Put the Palatka News down in the Whitner column. We once said it would take a strong mnn to beat McRae; not a giant, mind you but just an ordinary strong man; Whitner is a giant when it comes to agricultural ability and a veritable race horse in politics. Bring him out; he's a winner. The News finds a heap of pleas ure this glad season in the knowledge that the federal grand jury failed to find a true bill against Guy Metcalf, rostmaster at West Palm Beach, who was suspended from office last spring and since then has been under a cloud; there was irregularity and the Students' Home Coming. This week and next marks the home coming of a number of Palatka's col lege students to spend the holidav season, and some for a longer period. Davis Lane comes the twenty-third of December, from Davidson College, Davidson, N. C, for a two weeks va cation, bringing with him a friend, Mr. McCloy from Monticello, Arkan sas, also a fellow student. Mr. Mc Clov is 'studying for the ministry. The Misses Dorothy Merriam, Oma Davis, Nellie Lucas and Kathleen Hil. burn returned vesterdav from Fair- mount College, Monteagle, Tenn., for a few months vacation. From Stetson University comes Lewington Barstow and Lonnie Cain. From Sewannee Military Academy, Sewannee, Tenn.. Newell Davis, comes, bringing with him his rnom mnte, Donald Rittenhouse of Cairo, Illinois, and Harlan Feui'.le of Ancon, Canal Zone, Panama. In a few days another friend Edward Smith of Flor ence. North Carolina will come to ioin the house partv and they are plan ning glorious times through the two weeks vacation. A numbe" of social events are already being planned Cor the voung ladies and gentlemen who will be at home. Col. Folsom Visits Palatka. Col. Moses Folsom, previous to last April the efficient secretary of the Pa latka board of trade, was a visitor in Pabtka for several days during the pnst week. Since leaving Palatka Col. Folsom has been most of the time in Chicago, where he hns been doing special work for the Chicaeo Record-Herald, a work in which he h-s made a record in several parts of the United States. But the winter was on and Col. Folsom's thoughts naturally turned to memories of sunny Florida. Afte two or three blizzirds had struck him, he said "I will arKe and go to Florida, where there is brend enough nnd to spare, together with pie and cake and bull beef and veal and hog meat to snare, and the sun is used for wirmth instead of the overcoat." Result: He took first train for Flor ida. Some town in this state is going to secure his services for promotion work. And the town that gets him will have a man who is familiar with the subject: so much so that he will hit the bulls-eye with his first sug gestion. Col. Folsom left on Wednesday night for Fort Mvers. Before leaving he stated to The New that he expects to end his days in Florida: that it was the best State in the entire Union, climate, soil and opportunities for ad vancement considered. Kitchen Efficiency. Every lady in Palatka is interested in how to make her housework as easy as possible and she has a right to be. Men now a days use typewriters, adding machines and the latest im proved machinery and tools in their work, and a lady is entitled to the same consideration. J. H. Yelverton, Jr., has secured the services of W. L. Akins for this week to show you iust hoso how easy kitchen work can be made. I Mr. Akins has spent the past five years in helping ladies solve their kitchen problems, and he will . take great pleasure in helping you solve yours. So come down this week and hear what he has to say about kitchen economy and efficiency. Mr. lelverton has secured a few more of the famous HOOSIER Kitch en Cabinets to be sold on the well known Hoosier Club Plan, and during this week, you may have one of these new Hoosiers delivered to your home for only one dollar the balance to be paid at one dollar per week, which quickly pays for it. On those easy terms any lady can own one, no matter how small her in come, as she can pay for it out of her allowance money, and the savings on her grocery bill, and she therefore will hardly miss it. The ladies who have bought Hoos ier Cabinets on these terms say that it was so easy that they hardly knew now tney paid lor it, but as every other progressive housewife in Palat ka is reading this, it is very neces sary that you come down early before this small allotment is all gone. To the men, we would say that they could select no more appropriate or acceptable Christmas gift for wife or mother than a Hoosier Kitchen Cabi net. It will be the means of shorten ing the hours of kitchen work, and save miles of steps, and further will prove most economical, as it will les sen waste and damage to groceries, and therefore; while providing com fort and convenience to the housewife, will also save its cost in time. Mrs. M. A. Evans, of Washington, D. C. arrived last week and will make her home with Mrs. E. A. Brush this winter. This is Mrs. Evans first visit here after an absence of four years. The Sunshine Society met Tuesday afternoon with Mrs. E. A. Leonard, and was largely attended. The Dixie Jiignway was the subject of a general discussion, introduced by Miss Luella Johnson. William Gilmore Simms, "The Cooper of the South" was the author for the afternoon, and articles of much interest concerning the life of this Southern writer were contribut ed. Dainty refreshments of sand wiches, cakes and tea were served by the hostess. Mrs. J. Hurst and Mrs. O'Queen of Odom, Ga., are guests this week of Mr. and Mrs. S. Hurst.
