Everybody's wanting to
know about the Over-Sea
Highway.
Queries as to whether it's
open; what the ferries tolls
are; how often the feyrr-s
run; and almost every other

asked of somebody here by
outsiders from almost every

BABYREYESIS PIRATSIWAULLOP

K. 0,WINNER IN ALACRANE BUNCH

FERNANDEZ GO IN FAST SET-TO

GOO19 CROWD SEES FOUR PUBl, ON- MIOUID FOR


FAST BOUTS BETWEEN LO.
CAL SCRAPPERS AT ATH-
LETIC CLUB


Baby Reyes last night won over
Young Fernandez by a knockout
in the fourth stanza of their
scheduled 10-round bout at the
Athletic Club.
The mill, the headline attraction
of a good carq staged by Itupert
Knowles, was last and furious as
far as It went. Honors were ap-
parently even until the fourth
breezed round when Reyos man-
aged to land a clout on Fernandez'
mid-section which spelled curtains
for.that young hopeful. He was
out--cold.
In the semi-windup, Oscar Pita
was awarded the decision in the
fifth on a foul. Joe Baker, his
opponent, forgot for a moment
that he was in a boxing match and
with Pita on the ropes, applied a
wrestling hold which the referee
interpreted as a foul, The going
had been lively up to this point
and the crowd seemed to regret
that the bout couldn't progress.
Young Berlin Sawyer wont four
rounds with Kid Goldberg to a
draw in the second preliminary.
The boys were evenly matched.
In the curtain raiser, Dalbert
P Ilethel won a decision over Bobby
Waugh in a four-round fracas.
The crowd which attended the
bout was larger than usual here.
Its size and the reception it ac-
corded the f'athters led Promoter
Knowles to announce that he will
stage another show in the near
future.

NEBO TO BATTLE

CHANCE AT TITLE
PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 29.-
Pete Nebo's hand is temporarily
South of commission, and in order

illed to'ask for a postponement,

HUGE-MOTORCADE
MARKING OPENING
GREETED BY CITY

(Continued from Page One)
cheering along the route as has
never been heard here before.
At first, comparatively few were
out to welcome the party because
of uncertainty as to when it
wuuld arrive. It took only a few
minutes for the word to spread
about the city, however, and the
rest of the route traveled by the
scores of cars was lined with
cheering hundreds.
The city-at least a good part
of It-had taken the afternoon to
celebrate. Many retail stores
eloted and the downtown streets
wure as gaily decorated as on any
holiday. The Elks Club, the Cu.
ban consulate, and a dozen other
places stood out for the elaborate-
ncss of their decorations.
Thete wasn't a visitor in the
crowd which came down-so far


a' anybody could learn-who
waeu't tickled within an Inch of
his life with the trip. TheM's
nothing else like it anywhere in
this hemintphere, if you'll let a
majority of them tell It. An auto
rdad with an ucuan-going trip as
an added attraction 'has 'em all
going."
They're not only coming again.
Sbtt 'they're going to bring and
nend their friends, they are" l;'
snylnig.

Key West has long needed "lounging pllaccs"

the winter sunshine. The Woman's club is out to(
provide theHse. Every progressive, Key We.stt'r
would lend a helping hand,.

They've started something up in Fort Plr'ce
calculted to mnake that city grow like Jonaht's
gourd vine. They are going to send special edi-
tions of the "home town" paper weekly to a long
list of persons ull over the country. They haven't
any patent upon the idea, though nnd Key West
nmay well follow their example.

When Frank W. Lovering gets here, in a
couple of weeks, if Hcamilton Wright can come at
the same time, the city ought to stage a get-to-
gether dinner for her out-of-town boosters. Messrs.
Lovering, Wright, George Allan England, Colonel
H. M. Thompson and Malcolm Meacham would
bavq xqats at the head of the table, of course.

LOCATIONS FOR APPELROUTH HAS

BENCHES CHOSEN FASHION SHOW

BY LOCAL WOMEN. ---


WOMAN'S CLUB PREPARING
TO PLACE 30 SEATS IN NEXT
PEW DAYS; DRIVE FOR
OTHERS PLANNED

Locations for 30 benches, now
under construction for the local
Woman's Club, were selected at a
meeting of the civic department of
that orgEnization yesterday after-
11pun.
Several of the seats will be
placed on the drive-.way from the
F'. E. C. station; others at the
north end of Duval street; others
still, at the south end of White
street; and the remainder of the
80 at places where it is believed
they will be most accessible to the
average visitor.
The 30 will be ready for use
within a few days, it developed at
yesterday's meeting and more will
be available shortly thereafter if
the women's plan of financing
justifies the purchase of others at
t(lis time.
Much of the meeting was given
over to discussion of plans to se-
cure funds to buy additional
benches. It was the sense of the
meeting that the cost should be re-
duced sharply and efforts in this
direction will be made immediate-
ly, it is understood. Information
about this cut will hoe available
within the next two or three days,
it is said, and the campaign to buy
other benches will begin immedi.i
ately thereafter.

IIUL II1u s of thei Ir allows
Tens (f thousand: of murders are

"Ihf. By abortion. The physi-.
Oin, or midwife vho destroys an
unhorn child, and the father or
mother of it who consents to, or
aids the crime, tro all murderers.
And whether a woman is married
or single, the destruction of an
unborn child is deliberate mur-
der, Jeat as it would be to kill a
child already born. I There are
countless women who are ruining
their health and morals and los-

woman to stand before the judg-

children to her credit than for her
to stand there with one missing
which she ha d murdered.
"But if these men and women
will confess to God that they are
murderers, and pload for God to
cleanse their hearts and deliver
them from blood-r,'uiltiness, and
prove they mean it, God will par-
don even them. But, oh, the
memory of it! See the I51t P3s>lm.

hate. Have you wanted to kill
some one? Have you wished
some ono were d(lead? 'As a man
thirketh in his heart, so is he.'
God sees.murder in your heart,
If you hate anyone, 'lie that

'Oh,' someone says, 'I do not

$700,000 Boulevard Reveals


Unrivalled

Masterly Sweep Of Ocean
Meets The Eye During
Entire Six Mile Drive
By Marie Cappick
The recently constructed boulevard which, 'crescent
shape, extends half way around the city of Key West for
a distance of six miles ir crisidered one of the most beau-
tiful driveways in the world.
Constructed by Monroe county at a cost of $70,000,
it is a fitting terminal of the Over-Sea Highway, which
crosses 30 of the Florida keys as it wends its way to the
Southernmost city in the United States, and links Key
West, a city with old world atmosphere, to the mainland


of Florida and the great outsi

Polor 0. Knightt, in a rent adl.

July last, al tlhe end or' tlhe de-
flutio period, state taxes were
volunltari ily reduced by th state
administration :10 per cent. And
' lrida has no income tax, no in-
helitalnc' tax, no ieverancie tax,
no corot'aton t, o corpoarie ixni'lolatiou

tax, and no tax on intangibles,
rnising-' ill of its revenues for
state expenses biy an occupational
tafx, an automobile and gasoline
tax, and an ad valoreln tax on
Noail aud poraonId property.
"No state could have so sue-
cossf'ully, in the face of such false
reports affecting its solvency,
-gone through this deflation as
Florida has done. The reason for
it is that Florida has real merit;
it has had constant and continu-t
ous development for many years;
uitd, contrary to the general opit-
Ion throughout the United States,
Florida us a whole, during the
year 1192(i, did the greatest vol-
tuie of business iki its history,.
"By reason of ita incomparable
climate and the productivity and
variability of Its soil, it raises 250
varieties of field crops, fruits, tind
vegetables; supports its people,
probably the same number of
'tourltcs; ships 1G0,000 cit-loads of
perishable commodities annually;
could easily support a popula-
tion of lo,000,000 people, and in-
crease such shipments to 1,000,-
000 carloads per annum. It re-
e'ives millions of dollars annu-
ally from its sponge, fish and sean-
food, naval stores, lumber, phos-
phate, and cattle industries, andi
from the hundreds of thousands
of tourists who come to Florida;
jjd the value of Its manufactured
products is now in excess of $300,-
)000,000 a year. It produces
more p1r clipitia per acre in dol-

BY MR. AND MRS. E. C. BAL-
LARD, OF MIAMI, REPORTS

Key We'.t, a irc-At city with the
keys settled solidly idl the way to
the mainland, is the picture of
Monroe county by Mr. and Mrs.
El C. Ballard, of Mialli, who1
have spent a great deal of time
on Big Pine Key for the past s1 ev-
ei'al years.
The keys are not only in the
midst of the fine,,t fishing
grounds in the world, Mr. and
Mrs. Ballard point out, but they
have countles other advantage'
calculated to make them one of'
the wonder spots of' the worldl.
Sl discussing thel;' future, Mr.,
allord says:
"For the p1sa.st three years, wo
lave A.een investliig in the Flor-
Ida Keys, with a view of pleas-
uro find profit. With t. comple-
tion of the Over-'Soeai llihwny our
piroflts are assured; as to the
pleasure, it is all ours when we
visit these wonderful' Keys and

'Tis til sunshine, in winter
When )i'er the Florida Kteys,
l'dtii illet sedans, without covers,
'Flnned liy the Trop)it's lunlily liroee'zo
The highway, is paved with coral
And shaded with stately pills,
And every breeze, like floral,
Is charged, with healing hulins,.
The horizoin, in .,orgeous radiant hie's,
lice gloriously, with the flowers,
And tlie jewels, of the inorning' dews,
Make tus 1.hink we are in EdinI's lhitwers.
To "Frost Pree Key West," is the slogan,
All the way, from Miine and Boston,
Yesl we'll ride, on and on, "Over Seos,"
And all through Florida's Coral Keys.
From Key Largo, to Key West,
It Is ail the way, stin kist,
Hlre, Nature lavishes her best,
Without cold, snow, frost or mist.
'Tis "Cool summer," all winter,
The temperature, is never cold nor bitter,
You, need neither coat nor sweater,
All the year, 'tis tropical weather.
Folks, bathe and bask, in sunshine ever,
Without heat, disease of fever,
The once sick, are proved to tell,
That here, they were made well.
Here, fishing is the sportsman's dvilght,
A golfer wants to play all night.
The tourist's pleasure, is the coral site,
And neronauts fly like a kite.
The "Conchs" and their customs queer,
Are beyond reproach or sneer,
While the "Dagos" and "Coons"
Are as hospitable as forks and spoons,
Here, the climate is a heavenly shelter,
From the blight of frost all(d snow,
And ydung and old, bid you enter,
Were hearts with glad welcome glow.
Come, ald share our Paradise, brother,
Come, to this island of the blest,
Yoli need to seek no further,
'Tis found, and named, Key West.
