RSME OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE
FERNANDINA CHAMBER COMMERCE
FACTS PUBLISHED FOR THE'
BENEFIT. OF THE
The question is often asked iy
those who do not contribute to t ie
support of the Chamber of Col n-
merce, and sometimes by those %wo!
do contribute, "What is the Cham-b'r
of Commerce doing for Fernandina
and its people?"
The activities of this organization,
extending over a period of there
years, have been varied and are too
numerous to detail in a short state-
ment of this kind. 'We only wish to
call attention to some of the recent
things that have been accomplished
through the efforts of this organiza-
During the session of the Legisla-
ture just closed a bill'was introduced
and was apparently booked for pas-
sage, which might have been of very
serious harm to Fernandina receivers
and shippers of merchandise. The
bill was known as the Railroad Cut-
off bill and provided, in substance,
that where a railroad has, or shall
build a shorter line between two
points than formerly existed, it shall
be permitted to charge rates over the
shorter line based on the mileage ap-
plicable over the longer route. The
avowed purpose of this bill was to en-
courage the straightening of the pres-
ent railroad lines of the State and
the building of new short lines. On
the face of it, it seemed like a very
innocent bill. The Chamber of Com-
merce was advised by the Florida
Railroad Commission Rate Expert
that a bill of vital importance to Fer-
nandina was about to be passed by
the Legislature and the Chamber of
Commerce sent a representative to
Tallahassee to investigate the mat-
ter. An examination of the bill which
had already been drafted showed that
if passed as it was drafted, the freight
rates into Fernandina which are now
based on the shabort milAl mro k-
. la* YuletoulBtO li
be alm) doubled and that it would
bepomble under this bill to charge
mileage from Jacksonville to Fer-
nandina over the long route via Bald-
win. It is impossible to estimate just
how much this increase in freight
rates would have amounted to in the
course of a year but when it is re-
membered that practically everything
used in Fernandina is shipped in by
rail it is easy to understand that an
increase of approximately twice the
amount of freight now paid would
be a very serious handicap to our
people. Through its efforts the
Chamber of Commerce was success-
ful in defeating the bill in its origin-
al form and having it re-drafted to
apply only to short lines built since
About three months ago, the
Chamber of Commerce was notified
by officials of the S. A. L Ry. that
because of the very light passenger
travel on the train between Fernan-
dina and Jacksonville that one of
these trains would be taken off and
the crew tied up in Jacksonville. This
would have meant the removal from
Fernandina of all employees of the
S. A. L. Ry. connected with the pas-
senger train amid would mean that
we would have only one passenger
train per day. Ti,. Chamber of
Commerce served notice on the offi-
cials of the S. A. 1.. that they would
fight any arrangen,,nt of this kind,
and asked the Florida Railroad Com-
mission for hearing in the matter.

There are usually two high and
two low tides each day. Tides fol-
low the moon more closely than they
do the sun, and the lunar or tidal
day is nearly an hour longer than the
solar day. This causes the tides to
advance from day to day, and a tide
which has occurred near the end of
one calendar day will be followed by
a tide that may skip the next day and
occur in the early morning of the
third day. Thus on certain days only
a single high or a single low tide oc-
curs. In such cases it will be noted
that vacancies occur in the tide

I Hands of the Cause of God is to dif-
Ifuse t he divine fragrances, to edify
ithe .suls of men and to be, at all
tinmes and under all circumstances,
sanctified and detached from earthly
thinis. They must manifest the fear
iof God by their conduct, their man-

This body of the Hands of the
jCause of God is under the direction
of the Guardian of the Cause of God.
Hei must continually urge them to
Strive and endeavor to the utmost

STRUTS INTO FILM
"Say, who knows how to do the

perated director at the Cosmopoli-

he ventured "and I might be able

FIRST LANGDON FEATURE

Harry Langdon, First National
comedy king, is due to arrive at the
Rex Theatre next Monday in his first
feature length comedy, "Tramp,
With this picture the noted com-
edian steps into the super-comedy
class of Charlie Chaplin and liar-
old Lloyd. Under the terms of his
recent contrast with First National
he is to appear in a series of fea-
ture length comedies.
The story of "Tramp, Tramp,
Tramp," is an original with Lang-
don and one which he was had in
mind for some time. It deals with
a cross-country walking race.
One of the numerous exciting and
diverting episodes in "Tramp, Tramp,
Tramp," is a realistic cyclone scene.
An entire township is blown to bits
by this wind storm. During the tak-
ing of the scenes the movie camera-
men had to be 'anchored" to trees
and posts to prevent being blown

THE PRESIDENT GOES FISHING
Many of our leading statesmen and
philosophers have been fond of fish-
ing, so President Coolidge has dis-
tinguished company when he puts on
his wading boots and gets after the
trout of the Black Hills. Innumer-
able men have felt better able to
solve their problems after a bout with
the keen witted denizens of the trout
The human mind was not so built
that it can effectively pursue one
line of thought all the time. Like the
cells of your automobile battery, it
goes flat if you are drawing current
all the time from it without some
kind of recharging process. Out a-
mid the recuperative forces of nature
along the streams, the thought cur-
rent flows in again.
The children are taught how to
sing the scale, but as they grow up
they find that the scale of prices is
higher than their pocketbooks can
sing up to.

AN EXPENSIVE NAP
A salesman for the Cumberland
Liberty Mills of Jacksonville, who
handles the Fernandina territory for
that concern, was driving along South
Eighth street Tuesday afternoon,
thinking of nothing in particular ex-
cept the warm weather, and be-
comiing drowsy, fell asleep at the
wheel with the switch wide open.
Hlad there been no other traffic on
this street and the road been clear,
this story would probably not have
been written. But a colored man had
his Ford coupe parked near the corn-
er of Eighth and Hickory streets, and
on came Mr. Salesman in his Chevro-
let Roadster. A crash and the grind-
ing of steel against steel brought Mr.
Salesman to the land of really to
find himself in the midst of wreck-
age and blood gushing from a wound
in his nose. Officer Snellgrove was
soon on the scene and brought the
wounded man to a physician who
dressed the wound and sent him
back to his home in Jacksonville. As
he made arrangements to settle for
the damage to both cars, he was not
arrested. The damage will amount
to fully $105.

So far it has not been complained
that Mr. Coolidge scares the Black
Hills fish away by talking too much.
President Coolidge is at least con-
serving the nation's food supply by
catching the fish for dinner.
What the Father of Waters seems
to need is a kind of high sided berth
so he can't roll out of bed any more.
What this country needs is fewer
people holding up good citizens, and
more holding down good jobs.

many of the college students think
that now they should have a vacation.

THE IDEAL YOUNG AMERICAN
The overflowing enthusiasm shown
for Col. Lindbergh continues to be
one of the most interesting incidents
of our time. Some may regard it as
one of the impulses of popular hero
worship that are created by spectac-
ular deeds of daring. But it seems
to be a good deal more than that.
Col. Lindbergh seems to be a rep-
resentative of the ideal young
American which we have all been
cherlthtng. The American people
are not quite satisfied with the ordi-
nary type of young manhood of this
time. They recognize its brightness
and alertness, but they feel it is too
sophisticated, too smart in some
ways, too cynical and critical, and
too worldly in its search for money
Here comes a young American of
a quite different type, who performs
an amazing feat, but is very indiffer
ent to the money rewards for it. lie
is not interested in commercializing
his deed, but looks first to scientific
acheivement as his aim. He does
not get big headed over all this fanme
and publicity, but takes it with wound
erful modesty and is disposed to givi
the credit and attract the attention
He shows strong moral principle.
and strength of character by ah
stemious habits and self restraint.
The American people in paying
tribute to Lindbergh, are giviuim
honor just as much to what he is a
to the thing he has done. Thei
plaudits show. that they want morn
young men who seek high excellence
in their work first and money second
The young men of America do ,in
have to imitate Lindbergh by doing
some feat of daring for which ve-r
few of them are fitted, but they ea
do it by thorough work and solid .sub
stantial character and avoidance o
selfish striving and by sound m ora

The American people ought never
to forget July Fourth. They owe a
great deal to those wonderful and
far seeing men who on that date 151
years ago, declared that our colonies
were to have a national existence of
their own. That made it possible for
our country to develop institutions

PUBLIC UTILITY CHARGES
The question of railroad rates and
fares, as well as charges on public
utilities generally, is much affected
by the question whether such rates
should be .based on the original a-
mount of money invested in the prop-
erty, or on the cost of reproducing
that property at the present time.
It will make a big difference to rail-
road rates, for instance, whether the
courts eventually decide that the
charges made by the railroads must
be based on the amount of money
actually invested in the property, or
whether they are justified in charg-
ing rates based on the cost of repro-
ducing the property under present
As it would cost twice as much to
build these railroads now as when
they were constructed, very likely a
good deal more, such railroad rates
could be greatly boosted if the cost
of reproducing the property should
be decided to be the true basis for
Years ago, lower rates were some-
times asked on public utility corpora-
tions, for the reason that such prop-
erties, at the low rates for labor and
materials existing at that time, could
be reproduced for less than they had
cost. It will be argued that if the
cost of reproduction was a fair basis
for rates then, it should be the same
The public will no doubt say that
it will not be wise for public service
corporations to ask for higher rates
than is sufficient to attract adequate
capital into the business of these
companies. Some time ago there was
a disposition to hold rates down so
low that people would not put money
into such enterprises. That is not
good policy, because the public al-
ways suffers when the service ofthese
companies is not good. They can
not give good service, unless they are
allowed to make a reasonable amount
But if it appears at any time that
such corporations are making undue
amounts of money, public hostility is
excited. Unfavorable legislation
would be likely to result, so that such
companies would do better in the
long run to be content with moderate

and interesting program.
The opening song, "Little Feet, Be
Careful," was sung by the Juniors,

CHILD CLINIC AT CALLA-
HAN IS SUCCESSFUL
The first child health clinic in
Florida, under the auspices of the
Co-operative Extension Work in
Agriculture and Home Economics,
was most successfully conducted at
Callahan on Thursday of last week.
The clinic was opened at 10 o'clock
a. m., with sixty patients ranging in
age from one month to ten years,
under the direction of Miss Eliza-
beth Smith, of Jacksonville, repre-
senting the Florida State Board of
Health, assisted by Miss Stubbs, of
Green Cove Springs; Miss Pearl Jor-
dan, Nassau county Home Demon-
stration Agent, and the Callahan
committee composed of Mrs. Law-
rence Irvin and Mrs. T. L. Butler.
"Thorough Healthdom," a pageant
in which twenty of the children at-
tending the clinic participated, was
staged in the auditorium of the Cal-
lahan High School, in the afternoon.
Ribbons were awarded to the chil-
dren making the highest scores in
the different groups as follows:
First g roup, one month to two
years of age: Coralee Ogilvie and

TOO HOT TO SHIP BEARS
A cub bear was sent over from
Dungeness Wednesday for shipment
by express to the zoo at Jacksonville,
and deposited in. the express office
here to await the departure of the
morning train. But being confined
in a small crate, Mr. Bear suffered'
from the heat to such an extent that:
he expired from suffocation before
morning and was returned to Cum-
berland Island on the next bat.
Moral: Don't ship your bears in hot
weather, as they are perishable.

SPUDS AND MARY DECIDE
TO ATTEND FARMERS' AND)
FRUIT GROWERS' W\EEK
Mary and I were talking the lither
day about whether or not we -h,,uld
go to Farmers' and Fruit Groe\rs'
Week at the University this year. Of
course there wasn't much argument
against going, and everything in fa-
vor of going, but we just talk,.d it
over from different angles and then
decided unanimously to go. Mary
generally agrees unanimously ti do
whatever she wants to do.
I figure that Mary and I ie-il a
week's vacation away from the pil:.e.
this summer, anyhow. We' l,.,.n
working pretty hard, both of u.. ,ll|
along, not taking much time off. And
so I believe it would do us g.,,,| to,
get out into something else and g,.t
our minds off our work right ,,n ;,.
Last year I learned a whh ol, .t
about farm crops, livestock, ,h-.;,.
and insect control, pecans. n.all
fruits, etc., and there was a goo,,,! |t
of discussion on citrus, but I 4lii!,t
get to hear all of that. I cuhii't
go to everything. Mary learn j
whole lot about how to impro, aI
home in looks, how to make thi. ;-l
chen more convenient and cotaf,.r.r
able for her, how to sew and ii,,,.
pretty dresses and hats, and hi.a .,
better cook and prepare food :,lt
how to prepare what they call a
anced diet, which I suppose is .,
ies of good square meals. Mary '.,
they mentioned something al,,u
triton and vitamins, but she ,:.,
quite know what those things ,r..
so she just got the practical side .
that anybody could understand. T..,
didn't bring in those big word ".
Another thing that interested i.
Mary and me was the fine frien:
we developed there. We met a :
folks who were farming and ..,.
ested in rural work, just like w ,,.

WHALE AND ATHEIST.
HlE HO FIGHTS ALONL
THANK BE FOR LINDY.
Deeds of individual courage still
Arouse the world more than any
other achievement. Lindberghs'
welcome proves that men feel, to-
day, as they did about Grillon, Du-
guesolin or Perseus. The individu-
al fighter, doing it himself, is the
man adored by the crowd.
Any man is courageous with
many around him. With a crowd,
it is easier to go than not to go.
But, by yourself, it is different.
The great crowds that howl for
Lindbergh, and that were asleep
when he started off in the fog,
alone, at daybreak, know why they
A lookout on the cruiser Mem-
phis, bringing Lindbergh home,
called out, "There she blows, broad
on the starboard bow." Lindbergh,
on the bridge, saw a big bull whale,
accompanied by his "cows," keep-
ing close to their lord and master
as he rolled and spouted.
Nothing could have made that
bull whale believe that the tiny
man on the bridge had flown
across the Atlantic Ocean, in the
How can you hope to make an
atheist believe that there exists a
Divine intelligence flashing from
one universe to another, pervading
all space? The bull whale and the
atheist KNOW. You can't fool
Thank heaven for Lindbergh.
He may make this Governmet re-
alize that to be defenseless in the
air IS TO BE ABSOLUTELY
DEFENSELESS. He told the
Chamber of Commerce in New
York: "We don't want war, and
the way to avoid it is to be pre-
pared for it. We need greatly en-
larged commercial air service,
greatly increased air mail service,
to develop good pilots. It takes
longer to make a pilot than to
make a flying machine."
He reminded New York of the'
disgraceful fact that the richest
city in the world has no air port,
and must travel far off to Long
Island to find one.
And he said in substance this:
"They talk about anti-aircraft guns
as a defense against airplanes. A
hundred fast planes would soon
clear a battleship's decks of its an-
ti-airc'aft guns. Then a dozen
bombers would sink it. The anti-
aircraft guns might, but probably
wouldn't, bring down a few pilots,
destroy a trifling sum in airplanes.
But airplanes would wipe out a
$20,000,000 battleship and its great
crew of men."
Many people, including the Gov-
ernment, most listen to Lindbergh.
That's the advantage of climbing
to a high place among men. You
can MAKE others listen.
Much of woman's trouble has
been caused by her prejudice
against her own sex, her lack of
mercy for other women that go
wrong, her contempt for women
generally. Miss Bessie Mack, of
Chicago, accused of flirting by two
large policewomen, "beat them up"
when they sought to arrest her.
She surrendered peaceably to a
very small policeman, saying, "No
woman can arrest me."
Sir Oliver Lodge, who believes
in ghosts and spirits, says that
with synthetic protoplasm life can
be created in the laboratory. This
says Lodge, does not belittle God's
power, for man is God's creation
and might well imitate his Maker
on a small scale.
He MIGHT, .but he, WONT.
That is, he will not create the only
life that counts-the life that
Real life is THOUGHT, not
Things You Should Know
Hot Weather Hints
Assuming that there will be
some hot weather this summer, it
behooves the "fats" as well as the
"leans" to get all the comfort out
of it that is possible. Perspiration,
a most valuable process, should
not be arrested, but its discom-
forts should be dealt with intelli-
gently, if it becomes disagreeable.
Light, airy clothing is indispensa-
ble; it permits free access of air to
the person, which is effectual in
carrying away excess moisture.
Some people have sweat-glands
that are excessively active, especi-
ally the fat bodies with nervous
temperaments-these may attempt
to limit skin-drainage, by main-
taining more free action of bowels
and kidneys. It is not always ad-
visable to cut down water-drinking
in hot weather, unless it be the
intake of ice-water, which fur
many reasons is not good for the
human system. Neither should
plenty of exercise be neglected; ex-
ercise and plenty of good, cool
water, are among the best con-
servers of health.
If your perspiration has a very
offensive odor, your elimination by
bowels and kidneys is insufficient;
lessen your dietary of animal and
Locally, bathing, especially the
cool shower is tonic; the coarse
dry towel is a faithful ally. Many
powders are used for dusting re-
mote surfaces; know the quality of
the stuff you buy. If the skin
presents a "greasy" surface, the
stearate of zinc is excellent-may
be used freely without danger of
poisoning in any way. The only
precaution to be observed, never
dust baby so that he inhales the
powder-and this applies to any
dusting-powder on the market.
The stearate of zinc is a good face-
powder after shaving, especially if
the cuticle is oily in appearance.
Borated powders are very useful
on irritable skins, and, entirely
harmless. No dusting compound
should contain lead.

HINTS TO HOUSEWIVES
G d_ Peaches and Melons
Springtime brings peaches-the
smaller, honey-sweet peaches of
South Florida first, while in June and
July we have many varieties, some
for canning, such as the Clings, the
White June peach and then the large,
highly flovered Elbertas.
Peaches, to be at their best, must
be perfectly ripened and without
blemishes, for only in this state can
the full deliciousness of their flavor
be appreciated. Aside from their
flavor, peaches have a distinct diet-
etic value, being rich in mineral salts
and vitamins, and have a high wa-
ter content that makes them cool and
refreshing. Fresh or stewed, they
possess some laxative properties
which help to keep the system in good
condition during the hot weather.
The peach season is not overly
long, hence it behooves all peach lov-
ers to make the most of it while it
is here. Uncooked peaches are by
far the best in flavor and should be
used in the fresh state as often as
possible. However, it is necessary

THE NOISY JULY FOUR- -TH
THE NOISY JULY FOURTH
About 25 years ago the July Four-
h observances reached about their
peak of noise and danger. The public
was willing to let the young crowd
have the noise which was as sweet
music in their ears, but when it came
to filling our hospitals with wounded
and setting our towns afire, they said
t was about time for a little common
In time the custom of celebrating
the national birthday by mere noise
will probably come to be regarded as
crude and old fashioned, as suitable
more for backwoods districts where
any kind of noise is welcome. "But
of course young children will always
be tickled by big noises.
HOME TOWN THOUGHTS
National patriotism tells us to sup
port our government, and local pa
triotism, which is equally important
tells us to back up the institutions
and enterprises of our home town.
