The past week has brought out a number of additional candidates for county offices. J. W. Glisson of Bostwick, whose candidacy for Sheriff had been pre dicted, made his official announce ment this week. Mr. Glisson first sent a circular letter to each voter in the county, and in this issue of The News his official announcement ap pears. Mr. Glisson is a well-known and prosperous business man of Bost wick. He is a director in the Put nam National Bank of this city. He got his start in the turpentine busi ness, but he is a farmer and mer chant. He served for a time last year as deputy sheriff under Sheriff Kennerly. Mr. Glisson is a man of correct business habits, is genial, courteous and one who makes f riends readily, and' generally keeps them. He is a competant man for the office he seeks. P. J. Becks of this city makes an nouncement as a candidate for Coun ty Commissioner from District No. 2 the Palatka district. Every man in the district knows Mr. Becks; he was bom and reared at Peniel. For a number of years he has been engaged in the real estate business in this city. He was for two years chair man of the county school board, and is the present member of the State Democratic Executive Committee tor Punam county. Mr. Becks has a large circle of friends who will work for his success. Laban Price of the Melrose section, has his announcement this week for member of the County School Board. This will not be new work to Mr. Price. He served on the board in a most acceptable manner for a number of years. He is a fine gentleman and his family is one of the most promi nent in the county. R. C. Howell, whose announcement had been predicted, came out this week as a candidate for County Tax Collector. Mr. Howell served the people for eight years as Sheriff, and is at present Sheriff Kennerly's of fice deputy. He is well-known to the people of the county and city. lie has a winning way with him that is bound to count in his favor as a vote winner. The surprise of the week is the an nouncement of William M. Curry of this city, also as a candidate for Tax Collector. The surprise is occasioned by the fact that Mr. Curry has never before sought public office. He has lived in Palatka 21 years, .most of which time he has been engaged in tho oh husiness. He retired some months ago because of business mis fortune. He is a fine gentleman ann in event of his selection would fill the place with credit. Henis Petermann is a candidate for Supervisor of Registration. Ev erybody knows Henis Petermann; he has filled the place for many years, and no one would think of opposing his re-election. Mr. Bryan Tells This. A booking agent for a Chautaunua bureau visited a small town in the middle west. He called on a man who said in order to introduce a Chau tauqua it would be necessary to see the most prominent man in town. To gether thev called on the "first citi zen," and the booking agent was in troduced. , , "Mr. Jones," said he, "I called to ee vou in regard to a Chautauqua." "It won't do a bit of good." spoke up the prominent citizen. "My wife and I have looked over all the cata logues carefully and have already de cided on a Maxwell." ueaia dw. PUTNAM HOUSE TO BE SCENE1JUSICALE Benefit to Miss Irma Jane Lewis and Mrs. Robert S. O'Haver. Lovers of music in Palatka and the surrounding country will be delighted to know that friends of Miss Irma Jane Lewis, soprano, and Mrs. Rob ert S. O'Haver, pianist, have arranged for a benefit musicale in their be half at the Putnam House on Thurs day evening of next week, March 2d. The musicale will take place in the spacious parlor of this hotel, which is kindly tendered for the occasion by Manager Despland, wlo has also secured these ladies for weekly c6n- certs for the entertainment of his guests. Putnam House guests will also form a large part of the audi ence at the coming musicale. Falatkans who have kept tab on musical matters in the citv duriner the past several months do not re quire an introduction to the ladies who are to give the numbers of an excellent program at the coming ben efit. They have been freauentlv heard in private entertainments and club musicales. Miss Lewis studied with Martha Hillis of the State School of Kansas. also with Amanda Schmidt of Chica go. She holds a diploma from Bethany Conservatory and had a year's post graduate work under Prof. H. E. Mallory, one of the most noted voice teachers in th.i country. In 1914 Miss Lewis took the soprano solos in the great Handel's "Messiah" during the festival week at Bethany Conservatory, which is given every year with a chorus of 560 voices, a 40-piece orchestra and pipe organ. Among the world famous soloists ap pearing that week were Alice Nielson, Schumann-Heirtk, Gustav Holm quist, basso, and others. This was the first time a student of the conserva tory has had the honor of taking solo parts m this oratorio. Miss Lewis received very flattering compliments from these artists. In 1915 she sang in Gounod s Faust with Enrico Arizoni, tenor, with the Chicago Grand Opera Company, and Ida Gardner of the Metropolitan Op era Company. At the same time there appeared Madame Godski and Julia Claussen, and others. Miss Lewis has been soloist in some of the largest churches in the west and has done a great deal of concert work through the west. She aspires to concert and oratorio work. Mrs. O'Haver began the study of music when very young wtih her sis ter, then a talented performer on both piano and pipe organ. After a few year's work at home, the best teachers obtainable were secured for her instruction. These with the fin ish imparted in three years spent in a New York school, under the best foreign teachers in piano, har mony, musical history and the lan guages, she was given a diploma for carrying off the highest honors of her class. She was also selected to write the school song, which was sung at the close of the alumni banquet given during commencement week. After teaching piano anu piayiyng pipe organ in various large cities, Mrs. O'Haver took a post graduate course in the Leschetizky Method un der Anne Hulman who had just re turned from work with Theodore Les- chitzky himself in Vienna. , Fron that time to tne present Mrs. O'Haver has held responsible positions in large churches as or-n-anist. and has had great success with piano pupils, many of whom are now making names for themselves and becoming teachers also. iine nas done an immense amount of accom paniament work for many noted sin- trers. and is thorougniy a lover oi the host in music. She has always been a serious student of music in rll its branches, and has a remarka ble memory, a fact which has been commented on bv many persons of note wherever she performs. Mrs O'Haver is now a resadent of ralatKa. Tickets for this mnsicale benent h-ve been placed at 25 cents. Attention, Knights Templar!

The community was exceedingly grieved Monday to hear of the death of Charles, the three year old son of C. Howard" and Mrs. Rowton, -early Monday morning.- The child had been ill only a short time, but the sickness seemed to be. hard to com bat and all that medical skill could suggest was done together with the nursing and care of the parents and grand-parents, but the little fellow, while seeming to improve at inter vals, gradually grew weaker, and fi nally succumbed to the illness. The sinicerest sympathy of their many friends goes out to the bereaved fam ily. The funeral took place from the residence on Dodge street, Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Archdeacon Wm. Wylie of Jacksonville officiat ed at the house, and Rev. John T. Lewis, rector of St. Marks' church, at the grave. The funeral arrange. ments were in the hands of Mooney and Davis. There were mountains of beautiful floral tributes. Miss Lucas' Opening. The annual spring opening of Miss Kate L. Lucas' millinery parlors will occur next week Thursday and Fri day, March 2 and 3d, and as usual will attract the ladies from all parts of the county, with mny coming in from distant parts of the State. Miss Lucas' millinery establish ment has much more than mere local fame. It has long been regarded as one of the finest, best stocked es tablishlments in all the (Southland, this because of the size and variety of the stock carried, and the partic ular pains displayed in its selection. Miss Lucas makes regular semi-an nual trips to New York for person al selection, in which she is assist ed by some of the most expert milli ners in the big city. Then great care is always taken in the selection of her trimmer. Only those are se lected for this important post who have made a reputation in some of the country's centres of fashion. Palatka ladies will be delighted with this announcement, knowing that there is a real treat in store for them on these opening days . "My Auto, 'Tis of Thee."

Senator Bryan is Worried. P. Jack Becks, member of the State democratic executive committ- tee for Putnam county, left Wednes day afternoon to attend the meeting of the State committee in Jackson ville. This meeting, it will be remember ed is a re-convening of the commit tee lor the purpose of reconsidering the obnoxious resolutions passed at the regular meeting in January, ard over which the democracy of the State has been split up th eback. It is likely that the resolutions may be repealed, but they may not be. At any rate powerful influ ences will be brought to bear on the committee. to let the resolutions stand Senator Bryan, who is charged with instigating the resolutions, is worried. In a letter from Wash ington, dated Monday, and addressed to Mr. Becks and presumably to each member of the State committee Senator Bryan says: "I am going to make a speech at Morocco Temple, Jacksonville, Wed nesday night on the subject matter of the resolutions which the commit tee is called to consider on Thursday, and I wish to extend you an invitation to be present on that occasion. "I think the meeting of the com mittee the following day is so im portant that the members of the com mittee should attend the committee meeting in person and not give out proxies. With best wishes, Yours very truly, N. P. BRYAN." That is what The News has all along contended; that it was so im portant to Mr. Bryan that the meet ing should be held in Jackson A le, where the members of the committee could be surrounded with the same influences that brought ab';t the original passage of the resolutions, that Palatka was never in it with Chairman Raney, when he was con sidering a place for the meeting. Air. becks states that no influence can prevent him from voting for re consideration and a rescinding of the January resolutions.
