Captain Capdevilo pleaded elo-

THE KEY WEsT CITIZEN
The constant growth of tourist
travel through the City of Key
West, and the increasing business
which is bringing thousands of
travelers to Florida's southernmost
municipality, have created such an
added tax on hotel facilities of the

This County, named after President James Monroe, comprises all
of the so-called Florida Keys, a chain of Islands extending from the Southern
end- othe-peninsula Westward for proximately 150 miles. A portion of
the county is also on the mainland proper, including Cape Sable, and em-
braces several hundred thousand acres. The soil of the Florida Keys is
wonderfully rich and capable of producing fruits and vegetables in vagt
quantities if given proper amount of water. This County is the only one in
the State which actually possesses the climate which is so generally adver-
tised as prevailing throughout Southern Florida during the winter months.
Frost is unknown and the variation in temperature is not over 20 degrees
throughout the entire winter season. The Florida Keys offers exceptional
advantages for Winter homes. One can live out doors practically the entire
season. Fishing and boating facilities are ideal.
The celebrated Over-Sea Railroud, the creation of Henry M. Flagler furnishes
Key West, the County seat of Monroe, with rail connection with the mainland and the
balance of the County are now very much interested over the prospects of obtaining an
automobile highway from Key West to the mainland. This, when completed, will be one
of the scenic rides of the Country, and work has been started at each end of the County,
with the ultimate object of a direct connection from Key Wegt to Miami.
The members of the Board of County Commissioners are as follows:
OTTO KIRCHHEINER, District No. 4, Chairman
WM. R. PORTER, District No. 1
BRAXTON B. WARREN, District No. 2'
CARL BERVALDI, District No. 3

"Give me a Key West cigar."
Thousands of times daily that re-
quest Is made throughout the coun-
try and in each instance the term
"Key West" is used as synonymous
with "Havana." The reason for
that is because generation after
generation of smokers daring the
last ninely-two years, when the
manufacture of Havana cigars was
begun In Key West, have looked up-
on the local product as the equivalent
of that made in Cuba. Back years
ago; when Key West was known
only by its cigars in some sections
of the country, there were smokers
who were under the impression that
the Island City was a part of Cuba.
Possibly there are still many who
think the same thing.
However that may be, the Key
West cigar is considered until to-
day as the equal of that made in
Lle Island Republic. A peculiar
thing about the matter is that
smokers generally refer to the cigars
manufactured elsewhere in the
United States, regardless pf the fact
that they may be made of pure Ha-
vana tobacco, as "domestic." Offer
them one of those cigars as a sub-
stitute for those made, here, and the
buyers are as likely as not to say,
"Oh, no, I want the Key West
brand." Within recent years the
writer has heard that remark, or its
equivalent, made in New York City
time and time. aagin. And this is
the reason why: smokers have come
to understand that when they get a
Key West cigar it is as good as the
best imported. Indeed, the terms
"imported," "Havana" and "Key
