was entirely too late to stop the
auto, and the child was run over and!
fatally injured. Mr. Byles, horrified;
at the accident, lost control of the
car, which crashed into a telephone
pole and was wrecked. His brother.
Burgess Byles, was in the car with
him. Both young men are with the

No Flagler nor Plant has built for

Uncle Sam into giving her a federal

We have in Florida a good many

past with the present for nearly five
years have elapsed since Mrs. Ander Anderson

during that space of time the bonds
of friendship, though not lessened,
have grown wider and today the new"
interests for the honoree and guests
were more closely interwoven. The
place cards were hand-painted in
forget-me-nots and the same sweet
sentiment was expressed in each
course, the china being painted in
the same pretty flower. Jardinieres
of dogwood, vases of roses and pear
blossoms adorned the rooms.
The luncheon was served progres progressively
sively progressively on five tables placed in the
dining room and parlor, the two
rooms connecting by large double
doors, and it consisted of six courses
including grapefruit cocktail, deviled
crabs, tomato salad, lemon jelly,
wafers, chicken a la king, creamed
potatoes, peas in timbals, pickles,
cheese straws, hot buttered rolls,
strawberry ice and sunshine cake.
The place cards were tied with blue
and white ribbons and after each
course those with the white progress progressed

a most appropriate conclusion for
the beautiful luncheon.

This not only affords an oppor- j

of the South to get a broad educa

more importance it affords an oppor

posterity rich treasures of historical

These scholarships cannot b

earn them by study, and the door is
wide open to all who are fitted to
strive for the prize. For this reason

AM proud enough of the record which the FLORIDA TITLE & ABSTRACT COM COMPANY
PANY COMPANY has made during the past two years to be willing to assume that you are
fairly well acquainted with the company and its record. If you are not, then ask the
banks, attorneys and big land owners of the County as to its work and reputation.
To develop its business possibilities to a greater degree requires a larger capital
than it now has, and to provide for such development the FLORIDA TITLE & ABSTRACT

$".0,000.00 (one-half of the total capitalization) as a Preferred 8 per cent. Cumulative stock

every character and every dollar of its worth will be pledged to secure the safety of the
stockholders of shares of its Preferred stock, and the annual 8 per cent, dividend accruing
In disposing of the $50,000.00 Preferred Capital Stock, it is my desire to sell at least
one-fourth to Marion County investors HOME PEOPIiE who have a knowledge of and
faith in local conditions, the pecuniary profits as can be demonstrated hy our books, have
been thus far satisfactory and may be considerably enhanced by increased capital stock In
order to extend the business beyond its present limits.
I am so certain of financial success for all investors that I am content to take my own
personal profits from the earnings to accrue on the Common Stock of the corporation, after
the preferred share holders have been secured their profits, as above outlined.
The support thus furnished by our home people in addition to the thoroughness,
promptness and reliability of our work, as evidenced by approval of local bankers and at attorneys,
torneys, attorneys, as well as by big land owners of the County and State, will enable me to command
sufficient funds and control sufficient business, from within and without Marion County, to
make the Florida Title & Abstract Corporation, a truly State-wide, permanent and profit profitable

LAUNDRYMAN UNDULY EXCITED
Fears That Loss of Ambassadorial
Shirt Might Prove His Ruin
Turned Out to Be Quite
What happens when an ambassador
gets superheated under the collar has
become known on more than one occa occasion
sion occasion but it remained .for the last few
days to develop what happens when
an ambassador loses his shirt.
There are countries where ambassa ambassadors
dors ambassadors don't wear shirts at least as
shirts are understood here. Indeed,
there have been envoys at Washington
who affected 'flowing robes, but that
was before the day when a million
pairs of scissors got busy on some
200,000,000 Chinese queues. Shirts are
as necessary a part of an ambassa ambassadorial
dorial ambassadorial wardrobe as of that of the plain plainest
est plainest native. Almost every Indian
wears a shirt nowadays until he joins
a circus or comes to New York, when
he must apepar in the traditional
blanket of his forefathers. And all
the excellencies that are accredited to
this country affect this garment.
So it is with that particular excel excel-lenoy
lenoy excel-lenoy who has lately been paying a
visit to New York, a habit that dur during
ing during the present administration has
gained such vogue among the diplo diplomatic
matic diplomatic corps. Among other things, this
ambassador sent to the hotel laundry
a shirt. It was one of several shirts,
and, according to the best information
obtainable, it was a white shirt.
When the "wash" came back the
shirt was not in it, or of it. It was
missing. The ambassador made a
complaint. An attempt was made to
trace the garment, but a frantic
search revealed nothing that looked
like it, except shirts that were estab established
lished established as belonging to other persons.
The chambermaid, the valet, the por porter,
ter, porter, and the employes of the laundry
were closely questioned, but none re remembered
membered remembered having seen the article.
It was with deepest regret that the
management reported to the ambassa ambassador
dor ambassador the result of the inquiry. His ex excellency
cellency excellency was wroth. He said he must
have damages; the shirt should not
have got lost. It was pure careless carelessness,
ness, carelessness, and the hotel must reimburse
Wild notions as to the value of a
shirt that was good enough to be used
by an ambassador flitted through the
mind of the manager. He knew that
shirts cost a lot more in the United
States, as a rule, than in Europe, if
they are made to order, or if they
happen to be of a superior material.
He knew of hotel clerks who wore
shirts that cost as much as $15 apiece,
and who would not think of putting on
a cheaper garment. What would be
the price of shirt3 worn by an am ambassador?
bassador? ambassador? As he pondered, the ambassador
"That was a good shirt," he said,
"and it was new. It would be only
right that I should be paid its full

the manager timidly, "is the value

The shirt was promptly paid for.

A long-felt want has been supplied
by an enterprising New Jersey firmer

The pioneer in a new life of endeavor
had noticed that city hunters were
greatly handicapped in their efforts
by having to tramp over a much great greater
er greater area than they should to accom accomplish
plish accomplish a very little shooting. Plainly
the situation demanded the services of
an efficiency engineer. So he as assumed
sumed assumed the job. He wire-fenced about
fifteen acres of his most worthless
brush land; stocked it with a modest
assortment of Belgian hares and per permitted

it to become known that he would per permit

sportsmen on the basis of a payment
of 50 cents for every "rabbit" shot.
