Looking For Their First Victory

unfortunate for the local team.

and a late start, the Sharks have
an 0-3 record.
With no schedule game this week
practice sessions will be limited to
hitting, pitching and fielding.
Although the Sharks out hit Car-
rabelle 6-5, errors proved to be
costly to the Sharks as Carrabelle
handed them a 5-1 defeat. Leading
batsman was Bailey Chumney with
two triples followed by Billy Den.

I recently assisted the garden
clubs of Port St. Joe in planning
the landscaping of the .new Health
Center there. When the planting is
done, the plan should produce an
effect of which all can be proad.
These ladies are taking the great-
tory. The outcome of the rivalry
in the winter of 1936-37 seems to
have been a decided victory for
the older town, although St. Jo-
seph may hav efared better than
Our only source of information
is the partisan Gazette. According
to the Apalachicola paper, 18
steamers were plying between
that town and Georgia, an increase
of three or more over the preced-
ing year the number had been
only 48. The malicious Gazette an-
nounced with great glee in its is-
sue of December 31, 1836, that two
steamers were agorund in the
Lake Wimico channel.
Decide on Second Railroad
The promoters of St. Joseph re-
alized the disadvantages under
which they were laboring. With a
spirit that is not surpassed by any
modern business firm who is will-
ing to crap 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 Iola was soon to develop. This
new road would have two advant-
ages over the old one, the treach-
erous 'Lake Wimico would be
avoided, and the transportation
distance between St. Joseph and
Georgia would be considerably
less than between Apalachicola
and Georgia-Iola being 28 miles
from the new town and 70 from
the old one-while the Lake Wim-
ico 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.
However, there was no possibility
of completion of the work for the
season of 1837-38.
The Apalachicolans, 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 con-
struction, 2000 feet fo continuous
brick stores on Water Street-
each three stories high, and 80
The second season of commer-
cial competition between the cities,
the winter of 1937-38, found Apa-
lachicola retaining her supremacy,
although her rival's efforts to di-
vert trade were much more suc-

While the Saints were exporting
more than 30,000 bales of cotton,
the total shipped by the older
town exceeded 50,000. St. Joseph
was undoubtedly making inroads
upon Apalachicola's prosperity, but
in doin gso the railroad company
was compelled to lower its freight
rates to such an extent that the
income was barely sufficient to
meet operating expenses, and no
dividends could be declared on the
original investment. The question
seemed to be which town would be
willing to endure the cutthroat
competition the longer.

Formed in 1821, Escambia County's name was derived
from a Spanish term meaning "barter" or "exchange."
The County Seat, Pensacola, was named for an Indian
tribe, the Panzacolas, who were inhabiting this north-
west corner of Florida, when the Spaniards discovered
Pensacola Bay in the middle 1500's. The famous
Festival of Five Flags in Pensacola, honors the five
countries which have ruled this area. Today, Escambia
County is the site of the U. S. Naval Air Training Base,
commonly known as the "Annapolis of the Air," which
Is located just south of the County Seat.
In progressive Escambia County, and throughout
Florida, the United States Brewers Foundation works
constantly to assure the sale of beer and ale under
pleasant, orderly conditions. Believing that strict law
enforcement serves the best interest of the people of
Florida, the Foundation stresses close cooperation with
the Armed Forces, law enforcement and governing
officials in its continuing "self-regulation" program.

Buttrani said that the furniture
industry didn't really come into
existence until a little over 50
years ago. Prior to that time, lihe
reported, most furniture was made
in the home. Only the well-to-do
could afford manufactured furni-
ture and as a rule only expensive
pieces were made for the market.
The main influences were Duncan
Pfyffe and Hepplewhite, which are
still copied to a great extend to-
"Modern furniture first came in-
to the public eye at a fair in Paris
in 1929", said Buttram, "and it
looks like it is here to stay". .
Prior to the meeting Wayne Ash-
ley reported to the club of his trip
to the Rotary state convention held
in St. Augustine recently.
James T. McNeill was taken into
