Agents .Mnllory su-imoddp Line 9 m mil It is two years ago today that the doors of the popu lar James' Cafe, on Lemon street between First and Sec ond, were thrown open to the public; consequently pro prietor Robert James, better known as "Bob," and his es timable wife, were receiving the congratulations of their many patrons. The James' Cafe was very much in the nature of an experiment in Palatka, in that it was strictly modern and elaborately furnished, all of the fixtures being of the la test designs. Mr. James put into the business more than $3,000; and there were some who said it was a too high class proposition because there were already too many restaurants in Palatka, taking the hotel dining rooms in to consideration. But Mr. James had been in the restau rant business here for twenty years, and he said there was a demand for just such an institution as he intended to operate, and his remarkable success is an evidence of his good judgment. The James' Cafe is one of the most popular eating places in Palatka, and in fact, in the State. With eleven tables "Bob" has found it inconvenient at times to handle his patrons, hence he has long been figuring on something bigger and better. He says he has found just what he has been looking for and about November first will move into the Hotel James, now building at the corner of Lem on and Third streets. The new hotel building will have thirty-two rooms, sixteen with bath, all having running hot and cold water. When Mr. James steps into the new hostelry it will rep resent an outlay of approximately $50,000, and will be a strictly up-to-date hotel. It will be handsomely fur nished and the exterior, of buff brick, with concrete trim mings, will vie with the big hotels in the large cities of the country. "Bob's" forte, however, is in knowing how to take care of the inner man. He is an adept at this and the dining room will, of course, be better than at his present location, if that is possible. Mr. and Mrs. James take this opportunity of expres sing their sincere thanks to their, many patrons who have helped make the James' Cafe the success it undoubtedly is. ROUND ABOUT FLORIDA.

The tirst discoverer of America, ac rording to an. old Irish tradition, was St. Brendan. Brendan lived in the sixth centiH-y and, according to legend, fitted out a vessel anil sailed westward iu the hope of discovering an island supposed to contain the paradise once tenanted by Adam and Eve. He was accompanied by fourteen monks, and the ship was "victualed for seven years." After sailing forty days and forty nights they came to an island, where they found "a hull with tables spread with good meat and drink." They then sailed on for n long time and came to another island, "wherein were the whitest and greatest sheep they ever saw." After stopping for .a time they proceeded with the voyage and came fo a third island, called "the par adise of birds." After wandering about for seven years from island to island St. Brendan and his monks re turned to Ireland, where they aston ished the natives by tales of the won ders they had seen. In spite of the wild and Improbable features of this legend It was for cen turies accepted as truth, and the Span ish government sent out several expe ditions iu search of the islands of St. Brendan. The St. Brendan legend formed one of the causes which led to the discoveries made by Columbus. SPAN OF TWO LONG LINES. They Connect the Era of the Zeppelin With That of the Sedan Chair. , The late Henry Gassaway Davis, once a vice presidential candidate, saw and heard as a boy in Baltimore in 182S the ceremonies at the official be ginning of the Baltimore and Ohio rail road. The personage of the occasion, the driver of "the first spike," as we should say nowadays, was the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independ ence, the richest American of the eigh teenth century, the great gentleman and illustrious patriot, Charles Carroll of Carrollton. Born in 1737, Charles Carroll had yet four years to live. Thus these two lives are an arch of nearly ISO years between the American colonies of George II.'s time nnd the third year of Mr. Wilson's administration, when Mr. Davis' long life came to an end. The year of his birth was 1S23. A mere two dozen of such lives as Carroll's and Davis', a dozen of their united span of years, would take us back to the first Punic war. Charles Carroll and Henry Gassaway Davis, who saw him, together take us from the sedan chair period to that of the Zeppelin. New York Times. Pigeons and a Doctor, The carrier pigeou has been put to a new use by a doctor iu Scotland who has a large and scattered practice. When he goes on long rounds he car ries a number of plgeous with him. If he finds that some of his patients re quire medicine at once he writes out prescriptions and by means of his pi geons forwards them to his surgery. Here an assistant gets the messages, prepares the prescriptions and dispatch es the medicine. If after visiting a patient the doctor thinks he 111 be required later in the day, he simply leaves a pigeon, which is eniployeel to summon him if neces sary. To this enterprising physician the keeping of carrier pigeons means a saving of time and expense and labor. A Caller. "Any one call while I was out, Katie?" "Y'es, ma'am." "Who was it?"
