Rival Cties Start
Apalachicola and St. Joseph
Vie With Each Other In
(Sixth of a series of articles on the rise
and 'decline of the old city of St Joseph.)
In this saga of the rise and de-
,cline of St. Joseph we must now Yre-
trace our steps and consider the
rivalry between the towns of St.
Joseph and Apalachicola after the
Lake Wimico & St. Joseph Railroad
Began business in September, 1836.
While the preliminary work for
the development of St. Joseph as a
rival to the parent city was being
so successfully carried out, the sup-
porters of the latter place were not
idle. At the beginning of 1836 the
Apalachicola Land Company do-
nated $20,000 to be used to deepen
the western channel and the har-
lbor, thus permitting all vessels to
come within seven miles of the city
and those of a maximum draught
of 12 feet, to the wharves. At the
same time the company gave $1000
to the city for purposes of genera!
improvement, and $5000 to defray
the expenses of filling up the hol-
lows and grading the streets.
In order to counteract the iriflu-
ence of the energetic St. Joseph
Telegraph. tne officr-i,' of the cioml-
paro inr ranked thri etablishmerint oo
a new paper, tile Apalachicola Ga-
zette, and engaged as editor and
ostensible proprietor, one 'of the
ablest veterans of Georgia journal-
ism, Cosam Emir Bartlett.
Ready for Commercial War
Consequently the fall of 1836 found
the rivals ready for a bitter com-
mercial war. The records for the
years 1836 to 1841 are too meagre
to be entirely satisfactory. The out-
come of the rivalry in the winter
of 1836-37 seems to have been a de-
cided victory for the older town, al-
though St. Joseph may have fared
better than is apparent.
Our only source of information is
the partisan Gazette. According to
the Apalachicola paper, 18 steam-
ers -were plying between that town
and Georgia-an increase of three
or more over the preceding year.
The total number of vessels that
arrived 'between November 1, 1836,
and January 31, 1837, amounted to

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Raffield of

dering Monday on East Bay in Bay
county, and took their 2-year-old
son, Charles, with them. About 6
p. m. Mrs. Raffield discovered the
child was missing, but thinking he
was with her husband, was not par-
ticularly worried. When she asked
him if young Charles was with him
he replied in the negative.
After searching in the vicinity
without result, they 'called in the
Bay county sheriff whp organized a
hunt that lasted through the night
and well into Tuesday, with soldiers
called in from Tyndall Field, and

Health Survey Is Set
For July8th To 24th
Four-Way Checkup Will Be
Offered All Persons 15
Years and Over
Residents of Gulf county are re-
minded of the opportunity that is
going to be theirs starting July 8
and continuing through July 24, to
participate in a modern public
health feature, a multiphasic health
survey or combined health test,
which has been described as a
"Four-Way Health Checkup" (not
to be confused, of course, with a
four-way cold tablet).
Dr. Terry Bird, health officer for
Gulf county, said yesterday that the
rolling laboratories from the state
board of health would offer X-ray
facilities and blood testing services
to all persons 15 years of age and
over who desire them. All or any
part of the tests may be taken.
"These combined health tests have
been offered i4 Florida and have
proved highly successful," said Dr.
Bird. "It offers an excellent oppor-
tunity for Gulf county residents to
protect themselves against such
diseases as tuberculosis, anemia,
diabetes and general diseases. In
addition, the X-ray examinations
sometimes reveal such, things as
heart .int.:'r aiilt. tumorsand,
c-erLIT ibrioriinal ouindions which
itay appear in the X-raiy fil
Dr. Bird strtI:s-d that thie exami-
nations are "entirely voluntary, and
the results are confidential." If,
however, any portion of either test
warrants further examination, the
physician of your choice will be no-
tified and you will be advised to
call him for an early appointment
to discuss the findings.
Sponsors, in addition to the Gulf
county health department, includes
private physicians of the county,
the Gulf County Tuberculosis and
Health Association, Parent-Teacher
Associations, churches, civic and
fraternal groups, and industrial es-
tablishments. The Florida State
Board of Health is furnishing the

Because the household rumpus

the demand has developed for fur-

cial finishes in striking colors which
resist heat, scratching and marring
and are easy to keep clean.

Decide On Second Railroad
The promoters of St. Joseph
realized the disadvantages under
which they were laboring. With a
spirit that is not surpassed by any
modern business firm which is will-
ing to scrap costly machines for
more modern ones, they decided to
construct a new railroad from the
town. to the Apalachicola River at
Tennessee Bluff, where the town of
lola was soon to develop. This new
road would have two advantages
over the old one-the treacherous
Lake Wimico would be avoided and
the transportation distance between
St. Joseph and Georgia would be
considerably less than between Ap-
28 miles from the new town and 70
from the old one-while the Lake
Wimico route made St. Joseph more
distant from the cotton fields than
The Saints never wasted much
time translating their plans into
deeds. By the end of August, 1837,
The Times announced that $50,000
had been paid to Mr. Chaires, the
contractor, and that 10 miles of the
railroad had been graded and the
requisite timbers prepared. How-
ever, there was no possibility of
completion of the work for the sea-
son of 1837-38.
Apalachicolians In Building Splurge
The Apalachicolians, not to be
outdone by their rivals, had planned
an ambitious building program. The
Gazette announced in March that
there were now completed or in
process of construction, 2000 feet
of continuous brick stores on Wa-
ter Street-each three stories high
and 80 feet deep.
The second season of commercial
competition between the cities, the
winter of 1837-38, found Apalachi-
cola retaining her supremacy, al-
though her rival's efforts to divert
trade were much more successful
now, than in the preceding year.
* While the Saints were exporting
more than 30,000 bales of cotton, the
total shipped by the older town ex-
ceeded 50,000. St. Joseph was un-
doubtedly making inroads upon Ap-
alachicola's prosperity, but in doing
so, the railroad company was com-
pelled to lower its freight rates to
such an extent that the income was
barely sufficient to meet operating
expenses, and no dividends cpuld
be declared on the original invest-
nment. The question seemed to be
which town would be willing to en-
dure the cut-throat competition the

staff of 30 engineers have drawn
plans for a $10,000,000 expansion
now well under way. Under consid-
eration now is a new paper mill to
cost about $70,000,000. It will be lo-
cated at Kitimat, a brand new city
