If I were the Czar of Florida,
says Henry M. Adolph, Secretary

imported into Florida, corn, meal,
meat, beef, pork or bacon and
anything else, eggs, poultry or

should be transported to Van

Without fear of contradiction I

any place that can compare in
everything to make life worth liv living,

The Heavenly Father has
showered on this state, the richest

There must be a constant co cooperation

WE FIRST RADIO PARISH
A radio parish, non-sectarian, has been created
at Portland. Maine, where representatives of vari vari.
. vari. ous denominations were present to install Rev. Mr.
Hough as the pastor, who will minister to millions
of people through the broadcasting station WCSH.
1* i believed to be the worlds first radio parish.
It wa* at first thought that the broadcasting
of religious services would hurt the churches, as
people would stay at home in their easy chairs and
l:4en to the preaching and singing of hymns, in inatead
atead inatead of troubling to go to church. Also they would
avoid the collection plate that way.
Many people have learned through the radio
that church services are not what they thought.
They had looked pt them as mournful affairs, but
they find that they are a center of hope and useful
idV M*any of them are asking why they have
to isolate themselves from this center of courage
and resolve, when the doors are open and some someone
one someone waiting to shake hands with them.

THE JUDICIAL ATTITUDE
If the American people ever needed a fair
minded and judicial attitude, a willingness to
weigh facts without preconceptions and prejudices,
they need it now, on such a question as that of
prohibition, which congress has been investigating
during recent days.
It is very hard for people to approach such a
question without closed minds. Whatever our per personal
sonal personal position, we all have a strong tendency to
think in one particular way. That leads us, when
some new set of facts has been presented, to un unconsciously
consciously unconsciously desire to interpret those facts accord according
ing according to our previous opinion. So thl* result will be
that the great majority of people who have been
reading the results of that investigation, will finish
doing so with the same opinions they had before.
If people hear facts that seem to operate
against the theory they have been holding, they
will be inclined to minimize those facts and think
they are incorrect, or are not of very much weight.
But if they hear something that seems to bolster
up their previously formed point of view, then
they do not analyze it much, but promptly accept
it as gospel truth.
Here is a largely new question that ought to
be taken up and studied in the most thorough way.
The American people have begun on a great ex experiment
periment experiment in the hopes of doing away with a great
evil. The results of that experiment can not be
wholly determined from peoples impressions, but
must be studied scientifically, as business men
would decide the merits of some financial policy
they had been trying out. We should be as willing
to analyze the results impartially as a business man
is when he figures out how some new line of policy
has been operating. And people should be govern governed
ed governed by considerations as to what is good for the na nation,
tion, nation, rather than how it affects them personally.
LATE COMERS
Conductor Stowkowski, leader of the famous
Philadelphia orchestra, gave at a recent concert an
ironical admonition to the late comers of his
audiences, by having his players drift onto the stage
in an irregular way and leave as if they got tired
of playing. Some of the audience were said to be
offended, but probably they now see that these
celebrated performers had reason for annoyance.
The way people will drift in late to theatrical
and musical performances, moving picture theatres,
lectures, church services, etc., is very disturbing.
Often in a theatre one can not get the drift of the
play for 16 or 20 minutes, until the late comers
are seated and get adjusted and quieted down
which is very irritating to those who have gotten
out of breath trying to get there on time.
Such tardy habits are disrespectful to the peo people
ple people who prepare these entertainments and services,
and they disturb the comfort of the punctual folks
who get there promptly.
CRIME AND CITIZENSHIP
President Coolidge, speaking to the congress
of the Daughters of the American Revolution, held
that crime, bad as it is, is not so serious a danger
as lack of interest in citizenship, Only a small

criminals, but millions are foolish enough to go to

WHAT THE FREIGHT COSTS
(St. Augustine Record)
An interesting report has just been made on
what is believed to be one of the largest single
shipments of overalls ever made.
This shipment consisted of 20 solid cars, load loaded
ed loaded with 24,000 dozen garments2B.ooo overalls overallsand
and overallsand transported direct from .Commerce, Ga., to
St. Louis, a distance of 825 miles. The total freight
charge on this shipment was $5,096.53. In other
words, it cost 1.7 cents to haul a pair of overalls
825 miles.
A MOTORISTS VOW
(Morgantown (W. Va.) Post)
Once upon a time Frank Robel vowed that if
his new automobile ever killed a human being he
would take his own life.
Today Frank Robel is dead, a victim of his
vow. He shot himself a few hours after his car
had killed a woman and injured her husband.
We cannot recommend this same course to ail
motorists. But we do say that if all autoists were
imbued with something of Frank Robels spirit of
' seriousness and duty to fellows, fewer 'broken
hearts would follow that host of little white coffins
i which lies in the wake of the great national game
of autoing.

TODAY
The Sea Bead Ship
And Her Adventures
Strang* talcs clinjr about The
Three Brothers of New Bedford,
the old whaling vessel whieh was
u: <*d in John Barrymores latest
production for Warner 8r05.,!
The Sea Beast, which shows at i
the Monroe Theatre today few the
last time.
She is an old vessel. Eighty j
years hang over her head and yet j
she is still as seaworthy as the |
day she was built. |ler sturdy j
keel has played the waters of all j
the seven seas, from Cape Horn to j
the ice of the arctic circle, and in j
that time she has been captained j
and mated by many men of many j
kinds. If her carven figurehead \
could open its lips and speak it j
would tell many a harrowing tale j
of bloody deeds done in stealth
in the dark forecastle or on the
open deck, in defiance of the laws
of God and man.
She went to the bottom once,
stealthily in the dead of night, and
only the watch escaped with their j
lives. When she was raised again
another very heavy hull was built:
over her old one and she was used j
by a famous arctic explorer in an
expedition into the land of eternal
hows. At this time, she was
equipped with a steam engine
which has since been taken out.
In the great ice flows of the
north she would draw back like a
knight in the joust, and running
at hef greatest speed ram a lane j
through the obstructing ice. But!
once she got caught between two j
great|Bows and her crew of six-!
teen men were at last forced to
walk 800 miles over the frozen;
wastes to safety. Only four of;
them arrived.
During this time and before the:
men lived on a mixture of flour,!
beans, prunes and rice, all cooked;
up in the same kettle. This was;
the trip on which the captain j
went off his nut and took six
men who had slightly offended
him out on the ice, lined them
up, and calmly shot them down
with ,a high powered rifle. The
present mate of the boat, a Nor Norwegian,
wegian, Norwegian, actually saw this horrible
deed |ftmmitted.
On the high seas the captain is
the direct representative of gov government
ernment government and God Almighty, and
there i> no appeal from his slight slightest
est slightest whim. Needless to say, the;
captain who committed this deed
is atoning for it right now with a
life long sentence in San Quentin
hanging over him.

BETTER GARDENS
CONTESTS TO BE
CONDUCTED HERE
CONTEST TO BE PUT ON
UNDER AUSPICES OF WO WOMANS
MANS WOMANS CLUB; PRIZES TO BE
AWARDED
It is highly desirable that every
family in the city be represented
in the Better Gardens Contest
which is to be conducted under the
auspices of the Womans Club;
otherwise, the possibility of a
city-wide beautification program
will not be made possible. Under
the provisions of the contest, any
person in Key West possessing a
plot of ground, no matter how
meagre, is eligible. The only re requirement
quirement requirement being made is a notifi notification
cation notification to the Chamber of Com Commerce,
merce, Commerce, telephone 599, that he or
she wishes to become an entrant.
Prizes arc to be awarded accord according
ing according to beauty and general appear appearance,
ance, appearance, a first and second prize to
be given on that detail, and a third
prize will be presented to the plot
or garden showing the greatest
improvement; under this last
classification, the most humble
home in Key West has an oppor opportunity
tunity opportunity to compete, since all plots
or gardens will be inspected upon
entrance by a committee from the
Womans Club and any improve improvement
ment improvement made will be considered in
the awarding of the third prize.
Prires for each classification are
first, S6O; second, $25; third, sft>.
Points are distributed among a
number of horticultural details,
and are proportioned as follows:
General Appearance and
Beautyso per cent.
Flowers4 per cent.

Vegetable Gardens4 per cent.
Fruit Trees4 per cent.
Novel Features, such as sun sundials,
dials, sundials, bird-baths, water gardens,
etc.lo per cent.
Col. Robert G. Thompson has
made it possible to conduct this
contest, by a generous donation
of SIOO to be awarded as prizes.
His idea in doing this was to en encourage
courage encourage evtry family in Key West
to improve their surroundings
with flowers, grass and shrubs,
not in a hodge-podge effect, but
with some regard for color com combinations,
binations, combinations, and regularity. The
ideal development of even the
smallest plot, is not to dot its sur surface
face surface with rose-bushes, beautiful
although the blossoms may be, but
to jroptrive a lawn, with flowers
and shrubbery massed against the
porch, or house, defining the edge
of the lot with hedges, or trees,
or shrubbery, as they decide. Pot Potted
ted Potted flowers are lovely, and where
it is difficult to dig into the
ground the only means of beau beautification;
tification; beautification; nevertheless, a mis miscellaneous
cellaneous miscellaneous array of flowers, usual usually
ly usually a single plant of a variety plant planted
ed planted in a bucket of one size; another
variety in a paint-can, and yet
another in an old kettle, does not
make for real beauty, though of
course, it is an improvement over
a bare space. If it were possible
to get every citizen to beautify
their home plots with a bit of
lawn, a bed of flowers along
walks, and around the edges of the
house, a couple of fruit trees in
the rear, and a shade tree at the
corner of the lot, the succession
of lawns, uniform flower beds
and shrubbery would lend the city
an air of symmetry and beauty it
does not possess.
The Womans Club committee
will be glad to confer or to assist
in planning gardens for any one
in Key West who desires to enter
the contest, but hesitates for lack
of adequate knowledge. A few
ctnt* worth of seed, an intelli intelligent
gent intelligent idea of the possibilities of
ones yard, and the expenditure
of a little energy can make Key I
West a city of flowering beauty
that will pot only attrart visitors,
but will make them want to live
here. Wont everyone make an
effort to better the appearance
of their own home town by tele telephoning
phoning telephoning their name in before May
10th? The contest will commence
upon that day, and will close on
January 80, 192*. so there will be
ample opportunity to make a per perceptible
ceptible perceptible improvement.

KILLS OSTRICH
IN BOSTON ZOO,
MANFINED S2O
DRUNK FOUND GUILTY OF
TRESPASS BUT IS SET FREE
ON CHARGE OF CRUELTY
TO ANIMALS /
BOSTON, May I.
Charles A. Dana, founder of The
New York Sun, used to tell his cub
reporters: If a dog bites a man,
thats not news, but if a man bites
a dog, go get it!
Here is a true animal story. A
man killed an ostrich in the camel
house of the Franklin Park Zoo Zoological
logical Zoological Gardens here. The leading
figures in this piece of information
would have made a real news
story either way.
The man who slew the ostrich
was fined S2O for trespass in Rox Roxbury
bury Roxbury Court by Judge Perrins. The
ostrich weighed 250 pounds, was
worth SSOO and he was a proud
and haughty bird. William C.
Mclntyre, whos home is on Colum Columbus
bus Columbus Avenue, was arrested on a
charge of cruelty to animals. He
was further charged with breaking
and entering, and with trespass.
On the first two- charges he was
found not guilty. On the trespass
charge he was fined.
The court said it was obvious
Mclntyre was on a spree and
wandered into Franklin park look looking
ing looking for shelter for the night and
from the rain. He scaled the
fence by the camel house and en entered
tered entered the building.
Jud&e Perrins stated he did not
think there was criminal intent in
this act, but that Mclntyre wanted
to get in somewhere and sleep it
off. Under the circumstances
the cruelty was also unintentional,
Judge Perrins indicated.
He reviewed the evidence and
said Mclntyre sauntered into the
stall where, unfortunately, the os ostrich
trich ostrich was quartered, as he was too
ferocious to remain with his
brothers in the ostrich pen. It
was dark in the stall and Mclntyre,
according to his own testimony,
felt something strike him with a
vengeance, which started a fracas
that will live long in the chronicle
of zoo happenings.
Completely unaware of what
sort of strange creature beset him,
Mclntyre fought desperately in
the dark, finally obtaining a hold
on the ostrichs neck. ~
For a long time the ill-matched
pair (Mclntyre weighed 120
pounds) fought a battle to the
death. The ostrich succumbed to
his foes beating and Mclntyre,
still without knowledge of what
he had fought, fled from the camel
house.
Under such circumstance, Judge
Perrins said it was evident that
the cruelty was rather more self selfprotection
protection selfprotection than anything else, so
Mclntyre was found not guilty of
the charge.
Just before he was to appear in
court Mclntyre told a reporter:
Ill never indulge again.

Swimming Club, the last two were
located at the Waikiki Beach, and
one of these, the Outrigger Club,
