City Is Invaded


By Flying Horde


Saturday Night


Hundreds of Thousands of
Hymenoptera Appear
Saturday Night

With the humming of multitudi-
nous wings, the city of Port St.
Joe was invaded Saturday night
by hundreds of thousands of fly-
ing ants-Hymenoptera to those
who insist on classifying them
correctly.
The winged insects, attracted by
the well-lighted stores, swarmed
through the open doors of busi-
ness houses and gathered around
the lights in such numbers that
they .created a semi-twilight in
some instances. .Customers hur-
riedly completed their purchases
or left without buying in order to
get away from the'ants.
At Barrier's Five and Ten the
doors' were closed and all lights
put out but one large'.central fix-
ture, and when the ants flew to
this they were promptly extermi-
nated by the use of insect spray.
'This was good 'advertising on the
part of W. W. Barrier, as it, was
Sample proof of the efficaciousness
Sof the particular brand of insect
spray that he carries, the insects
being krill-d by the thousands and
d poppingg to }b)e -. untersg-nd .floor
until tb place was literally
ilank-ted with them. It was then
considerable, of a job to clean off
the counters and sweep the floor,
and the Barriers were still at it
Monday morning ridding their
premises of the dead but un-
wanted visitors.
Some business men were of the
belief that the ants were ter-
mites and were worried, by the
thought that their buildings would
be attacked and colonies of the
voracious pests established in the
woodwork of the structures.
However, a close examination
of some of tire dead ants brought
out the fact that they were merely
the common black ant, beiig both
male and female of the species.
Delving into the life history of
the ant, we find that generally
early in the summer those with
wvings take off in what is termed
their "nuptial flight." From the
home colony the gauzy-winged
males and females, apparently at
some given signal, rush out of
the entrance, called forth -not only
by the warmth of the sun, but by
some mysterious instinct which
tells them when mating time has
come. Up and up they fly, until
they are lost to sight, and only
the strongest males are able 'to
overtake the prospective queens.
High in the air the mating takes
place, and then the joyous hour of
flight and romance is over, and
both return to humdrum earthly
life. The male dies almost immedi-
ately, and the- female, realizing
that never again will she need
her delicate wings, tears them
'off or rubs them off.
Some of the returning queens
are captured by the workers and
carried back to the communities

MANAGER OF PORT


Wins Support


Broad Development of Chattahoo-
chee, Flint and Apalachicola
Approved by Committee

The war department last Fri-
day recommended a broad plan
of development for the ChaUtt-
hoochee, Flint and Apalachicola
rivers, with immediate construc-
tion of navigation fa.illties to
cost $6,500,000, and Tuesdjy the
recommendation won approval by
the senate commerce conimittee.
Major General Julian L. Schley,
chief of army engineers, and the
war department's oDard of engi-
neers said in a report to coligress
that dams should be built to pro-
vide six-foot channels on the
Chattahoochee to Columbus, Ga.,
and on the Flint to Bainbridge,'
Ga.
One of the dams would be at
Fort Benning, Ga., and the other
just south of the junction of the
Chattahoochee and the Flint. The
eventual plan calls for construc-
tion of four other dams on the
Chattahoochee.
Such a development would un-
doubtedly be of considerable value
to Port St. Joe, as it is the near-
est deep-water harbor: to the Apa-
lachicola river, ane jow% that this
city is' connected by canfal with
the intra-coastal waterway, vari-
ous products could be' brought
here by barge for loading on
ocean-going freighters.

Shopper Hailed


By Merchants As


Business Getter

Free Distribution Paper Is
Believed To Be Correct
Tonic for Business

At the suggestion of business'
men of the city and after working
on the matter from all angles for
the past six weeks, the publisher
of The Star. this week brought
forth the first issue of The St. Joe
Shopper-a free circulation paper
established to give complete cov-
erage of the Port St. Joe trading
area in an endeavor to stimulate
business in this city.
Merchants of the city felt that
as payday of the St. Joe Paper
company tell on Friday, that ad-
vertising placed in .The Star lost
its drawing power due to the fact
that many of their customer's
made their purchases Friday be-
fore reading The Star, which goes
into the postoffice early Friday
morning.
The suggestion was made that
publication day of The Star be
changed to Wednesday, but the
editor felt that the present was
not the time to make such a
change, and placed before the
merchants the idea of a Wednes-
day shopping guiir, to be di.j
tribute to every home in this
trade..area. The idea was greeted
with muchleBanthuslasm, and the
St. Joe Shopper is the result,
All places of 1btsiltess could not
be contacted for the first issue 'of
The Shopper, which came out
Wednesday, but an endeavor will
be made before the next issue
to present the idea to all business
concerns and allow them the op-
portunity to make use of the col-
umns of this latest addition to the
newspapers of Gulf county.
The Shopper will be made as
readable and interesting as 'pos-.
sible, but no endeavor will be
made to carry local news, unless
something "big" breaks. Its col-
umns will be devoted to articles
about advertisers, jokes. recipes
and such matters. In this respect,
the publishers asks every womad
in this section to send in at least
one favorite recipe for publication.
All will be published, together
with the names of those sending
them in.
The Shopper will continue pub-
lication, just as long as the busi-
ness houses of the city continue
to patronize it, and as it is at
their suggestion that it was born,
we feel that it will have a long
life. O'
Advertisers making use of the
first issue of The Shopper are
greatly pleased and feel that it is
just the thing to pep up business,
especially during the summer sea-
son when a slump generally oc-
curs.
Every business house of the city
is 'urged to give The Shopper a
try out, as it Is the only paper
that goes into EVERY home in the
Port St. Joe trading area, assur-
ing complete coverage.
The Shopper also does away
with the curse of handbills that
tend to litter up the yards of
homes in the city and which are
generally thrown into the trash
can without being read.

Bishop Frank .Tuhan of Jackson-
ville visited in this city Sunday
'en route to Tallahassee to attend
a meeting of bishops and laymen
of the' Episcopal church.

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

JUST BEING INFORMAL
With the sweat pouring off our editorial
brow and thoughts of landing bass in the
Dead Lakes flitting through our editorial
mind, we find it rather hard to get down to
the point of turning out "heavy" stuff, so
we're just going to be sorta informal.
In the first place, we've been too doggone
busy to editorialize, what with getting out a
couple thousand page circulars for Joe Hau-
ser, making.up the first issue.of-the St. Joe
Shopper and seeing that everybody and their
dog got a copy, turning out a rush job for.
Roy Williams, which he just had to have on
an hour's notice or he would perish, and talk-
to salesmen and regular people who dropped
into the office for this, that or the other
thing, but mostly just to chew the rag. And
in the second place we'd rather go fishing-
which also applies to the third, fourth, fifth
and any other places.
This weather is rather informal-in Califor-
nia it would be called "unusual"-and every-
body is going around in shirt sleeves and
rolled stockings. Personally, 'we've been seri-
ously considering donning a bathing suit to
do our work in, but we probably can't until
:it becomes "the style"-and who ever heard
,of an editor setting styles, anyway?
Still along the informal line, we fully in-
tend to go to church Sunday night to hear
Rev. Marietta speak on "Henpecked Hus-'
bands," and we intend going in our shirt-
sleeves. We don't care what the congregation
-nor the minister thinks about us, but we don't
intend'to be miserably hot while listening to
;a good sermon. When we come right down
to it, the minister ought to mark it down as
a red letter day, even if we should appear at
church in overalls and barefooted.
Still speaking along informal lines, we are
glad to see that the city is having the weeds
cut on the vacant lofs-now we'd like to see
a lot of individuals cut the weeds in their
yards so we could see the houses. We've had
our wife out two days now cutting the tall
timber that has sprung up about the Star
building during the past month, and it's ac-
tually beginning to look like the place is oc-
cupied. Now all we need is to have the St.
Joe* Land company cut the weeds on the lot
adjoining ours so we can find our place of
business after nightfall.
And in conclusion, still informally, we'd
rather be fishing than writing informally.

Word comes from Washington that Con-
gressman Millard Caldwell has been pushing
his bill to authorize the federal surplus com-
modities corporation to purchase and dis-
tribute to relief clients surplus fish products.
The bill has been favorably reported to the
house. Caldwell's measure will have the ef-
fect of placing sea foods on the same basis
as agricultural products in the distribution of
commodities through relief, and will mean a
great deal to this section of Florida.

If anybody else asks us: "Is it hot enough
for you?" we're going to tell 'em to go to a
hotter place than Port St. Joe has been dur-
ing the past few days.

Here it is almost July, and we haven't seen
a June bug yet.


A DIFFERENT SLANT
No subject is more thought of or more
talked about today than social security.
Everyone has something to say, and most of
them think they understand it thoroughly.
But an editor of a country weekly in a dis-
tant state has something to say that is dif-
ferent-and worthy of serious attention. He
says:
"An insurance man has just spent an hour
telling me how by saving through his insur-
ance plan I may be independent at 65. He
paints a glowing picture of loafing, fishing,
playing golf, sailing around the world. The
idea of saving money for old age is a good
one, but I think we must save more than
money to make the later years truly rich.
"We should save our friends, and make
new ones, so that we will have someone to go
fishing with us when we, retire. We must do
some constructive work that will endure, we
must help others to grow, so that as we en-
ter the sunset years we may feel that our


,lives have not been in vain. We must make
friends of good books and good music, for
these will all cast a benediction over our final
years.
S"We must so live, too, that we may hoard
up a great store of beautiful memories. We
should have in our mental bank only thoughts
of peace, good will and love, with no room
for prejudice or remorse. It will take more
than a check each month to mate an old man
contented and happy. Be sure to save now all
the things that make for true wealth."
SAbout all that can be added to this discus-

New Serial to

.Start at Port

A new thrilling serial, "The
Spider's Web," in 15 chapters,
will open soon at the Port theater
for Saturday showings.
Warren Hull plays a triple role
in this gripping serial about a
king of crime who strikes at the
nation's :vitals. He is Richard
Wentworth, suave criminologist,
who sometimes masquerades as
the Spider, dread scourge of the
underworld. At other times, and
with lightning speed, he slips into
the. guise of BlinTy McQuade, a
criminal, and drifts into the un-
derworld for the information he
desires.
I "The Spider's Web" pits Hull
against'a mysterious evil genius
known as the Octopus. an arch-
criminal whose identity is kept in
suspense until the very last chapr
ter of the picture.
