(J. E. Worthington in Tampa Times)

South Florida to the northwestern
gateway 'which would mean much to
South Florida an '1 very much to the
country that would bo opened up by
this extension. Certainly the Coast
Line did not put in such a good road
to use only as it now does, to carry on
a logging business with a passenger passenger-train

that there is. little development out outside

now, but once it is thrown open it has
potentialities that will attract a large
population. Some of the best farming

counies north of here and the time is
coming when they will support great
numbers of cattle and raise quantities
of corn, cotton and general ... farm
products. 'V..:
353 Miles to Albany
Building the 30-mile gap from Per Perry
ry Perry to Monticello would give a route of
333 miles from Tampa to Albany, a
gateway point to the northwest. From
Tampa via Jacksonville to Albany is
427 miles. Most of South Florida's
freight now moves, however, not by
way of Jacksonville, but via Lake Lakeland,

such a logical thing to do and will

the northwestern outlet is so logical
that it is sure to be built.Mr. Tillis
called attention to the high grade of
construction as indicating that the
Coast Line must have had something
more in view than a branch line.
"Of course Dunnellon, of itself,
would have little to offer in the way
of traffic,", said Mr. Tillis, "but it
would be of much advantage to our
section to have the road opened and it
isuite certain to me that the Coast
Line intends in time to open it.
Otherwise, why would they-have built
it in such permanent shape as they
did? It is not a branch line by any
means. When the road w-as under
way it was talked a good deal that the
Coast Line expected to build the gap
from Perry to Monticello, too, but the
var came on and nothing was done."
Mr. Tillis says nothing has been
heard of late about the extension of
the Seaboard from Brooksville to In Inverness,
verness, Inverness, a distance of about 20 miles,
which, would put the hard rdfcfc phos phosphate

and Dunnellon, in touch with ship-side

CO miles long.
Hard Rock to Fernandina
All of the hard rock in this section
moved oufc before the war via Sea Seaboard
board Seaboard to Fernandina, a distance of
about 180 miles, where it was put
aboard vessels with the exception of
the shipments made by the Dunnellon
Phosphate Co. 'to Port Inglis and
there loaded aboard ship at the mouth
of the Withlacoochee. The Borneo, an
Austrian ship, which was interned in
Tampa harbor for two years during
the war, was taking on phosphate at
Port Inglis when the war broke out.
The Seaboard has since bought the
Standard & Hernando railway, the
branch line by which the ,Dunnellon
Phosphate Co. moved its rock, the
lighters have been moved to Tampa
and there is nothing at Port Inglis
now except the drying plant. Rock

A Summary of Mrs. Catt's Idea of the
Power in the Women Voters
The women voters of the world
have a unique opportunity at this
time to render a signal and immortal

humanity. ThatJ service consists in
upholding and making impregnable
the fine impulse to- democracy that
has come into being with the world
war. It consists in strengthening and
clarifying the application o democ democracy
racy democracy so that the old grievous errors
of history may not be repeated. It
consists in demonstrating to even the
most reactionary Tory that the right
cf self-government cannot be limited
by an arbitrary restriction on the
ground of sex any more than on the
ground of property, and that the
mental operation of the man who
holds that pod has equipped him with
the ability to vote and blessed him
with the right of self-government and
yet believes that women have neither
the ability nor the right to a voice in
their own government, is only a
modified form of that of the ex-kaiser,
who declared himself an instrument
of God and that the rule of men was

The wise shopper keeps in touch vith the advertisement of her
favorite stores. When she sees annoucements of goods in
which she is interested, she. knows right where to go to find
them, She knows when they are put on sale.
No time lost in aimless looking and asking. Reading the ad ad-vertisements
vertisements ad-vertisements saves her time for other duties or pleasures.
When parents decide to send a boy or girJ ,away to school,
they cannot take the time to go and inspect a great number
of schools from which to choose. They study advertisements
of schools and to the ones that seem to offer right conditions
they write for catalogs.
When a man decides to buy an automobile, he reads carefully
the advertisement which tell about the different makes of cars
and then he. calls to see only those in which, he is interested.
He does not start out by hunting up the salesrooms and look look-ing
ing look-ing at all. the cars sold.
These are only a few ways in in which reading advertisments
saves the' time of readers. There are many others.
Your daily newspaper is full of advertisements which not only
. interesting but. have some special message of benefit to you.
Make a practice .of reading them. You will find your time
saved and your money better spent.
