cher Fletcher satirically said that for a half
dozen years he had been attending
the annual meetings af the National

had Jelt, as he mingled with its mem members

that he was in "if not select, at least

the Kissimmee river was the only
means of communication, other than
roads, between some three thousand
square miles of territory along vthe s.

point touched by a railroad.
As to, the Oklawaha, Senator Flet Fletcher

The Power Company's Proposition
The Florida Power Company's
proposition for furnishing electric
current to the city, which has been
advertised for the past few, days in
the city papers was read,, as was also
a letter from Mr. R. C. Camp, presiT

letter cites -that his company has an
investment of $600,000 in its; hydro hydroelectric
electric hydroelectric development, and that if the
city built its plant and generates
800,000 K. W. 11'. per yeai at 3 cents

this figure and the one he proposes
to furnish the power at will be $8000

his verbal eplanation of the propo proposition
sition proposition Mr. Camp says: f t
"I do not ask the city to accept
either of the propositions made. I
only ask that the citizens go into the
matter, investigate and ;determine
that which As best for the city."
Mrl Camp explained his reason for
the placing, of this letter before the
board. He said that it appeared that
the board of governors were anta antagonistic
gonistic antagonistic to the plan. :.
Mr. MacKay, speaking for the
board of .governors of the Marion
County. Board of Trade, i said that the
impression of Mr. Camp that that
body was Antagonistic to the plan was
erroneous. He said that the board
would take pleasure in considering
any proposition looking to the wel welfare
fare welfare of the city, and that the present
communication wras the first that had
been submited to the board on the
subject. Mr. Rooney al6 spoke in
defense of the board of governors,
stating, that the matter had never
been laid before the Board of Trade
for action or consideration. He
stated also that he believed the new newly
ly newly elected councilmen, a majority of
whom are memberk of, the Board of

the case in the past, and felt that any

"1 think'that Linda runs a very great

"Then she shall go."
But when Linda was called and the
facts made clear to her she absolutely
refused to leave Kalraacks.

Joe turned to Petersham. "If you

I. who knew Joe, was surprised to"
hear him offer so definite an opinion

'It's all nonsense, isn't it? Why, If

of her glorious eyes.
'I'd sure try to hard- enough," re
plied November. "And now. Mr. Qua

just where the fella stood when he
held him up this morning."
So Joe went dowti to the; brook, and
1 went with him. We were soon .be .beside

November glanced over the details
and then followed the bank of the
brook for some distance. Presently be
"Did you strike his trail?" asked Puttick.;-
"No. the stones lead right away to
the lake, and like as not he came in
"Like as not." agreed Puttick and
resumed his work on the canoe which
had ; been so rudely interrupted earlier
in the day.
We found Linda in the living room
arrangingsome fishing tackle. She at
once appealed to Joe. -;
"Oh. Joe. I want to try some of
those English lures Mr. Qua ritch gave
me. -I'm going lo fish, and 1 want to
use this two jointed pole. Will you
fix it for me?"
"I'd like you to make me a prom promise,

"What is It?"
Not to go out 'at all today."
"You don't think I'm In danger?"
"You're in great danger. Miss

"Joe. you mean you have discovered"-'
"No; I ain't discovered nothing, but

"Where are you going. November?"
"Over to Senlis lake. Mr. Quaritch.

"Yes. Joe," said Linda.
After Joe's departure I took a book
and sat with it ?n the veranda, where
I was jcined in due course by Linda
and Mr. Petershsni.
"It's cool here, the only cool spotln
