HOLLAND ISN'T HAPPY
One of our leading business men
has received the following letter from
a gentleman, who after spending some
time in Florida, returned last summer
to Holland, his native land.
Loeterwoude, Jan. 4, 1920.
Dear Sir: May I wish you a pros prosperous
perous prosperous New Year and hope that your
health may be so improved that you
feel like a new person again.
So you see by the postal stamps,
we are in Holland. We arrived on the
13th of August, 1919, after a pleasant
trip; it was very uneventful, with the
exception of sighting about six float floating
ing floating mines, but everything was in read readiness.
iness. readiness. Before we entered the English
channel, all life-boats were swung
I went home with my family at
first to see my relatives whom I hadn't
seen for over sixteen years. I had an
offer to go in with my oldest brother,
who has a tannery or leather factory,
in which he had made lots of morftey
during the war period, and of course
I thought it a fine thing to go back
and as he stated he was very busy, but
what a difference when I came to his
place. He had only a few men and
everything the same as for 25 years
past. He never made any improve-J.
ments and at present on account of
the enormous prices asked for every everything,
thing, everything, also leather, he is unable to
compete, as he can't make his leather
fine enough and that is the reason he
can't sell. During the war they took
anything, good or not. He is too slow
and too late and can't get improved
machinery on account of the very,
very high prices asked, so you see 1
was disappointed from the start. From
all I have seen so far Holland is far
behind in everything, from whatever
angle you view it, and Hygeia! you
probably have heard of Holland being
so clean, but that goes as far as brass
work and paint work, but the real
Hygeia, clean of body, they don't
know much of. Now to come back to
prices of food and clothing and other
necessities; they are fearful. Pork .is
75 cents for five ounces; other meats
90 cents and $1.25 for five ounces; a
loaf of white bread 32 cents, cheese 75
cents for five ounces; eggs 20 cents
apiece; milk 20 cents a quart; flour
25 cents a pound; rice 50 cents a
pound; oatmeal 25 cents a pound;
butter, $1.70 a pound; kerosene 24
cents for one-fifth gallon; coal $3 for
about a feed bag full; suits, $117 or
over; shoes, for my wife, just com
mon, $14.50. Then you must not for
get that when a man (married) earns
6.00 a year he is subject to taxes as
high as five gulden, that is, for the
community. Outside that, ont has to
pay taxes for the government, but I
haven't heard as yet how much. Then
come school and church taxes and
there may be extra war taxes. I for forgot
got forgot to tell you that bread, sugar, coal
and cokes only can be obtained on
tickets given out by the government,
and you are allowed just so much,
with sugar half a pound per head per
week. You never know when you can
get the next supply of coal. I have
teen out of coal for more than two
weeks, and then we have to use peat
blocks, but they don't give much heat
and cost about two cents apiece. The
blocks are about nine inches by three
inches by three inches. There is
short kind, 6x3x3. Did you ever think
that such conditions could exist in a
country that stood neutral during the
four years of war? Holland is just as
bad off as Germany and the other
countries; no business and everything
deai and of course idleness. No won wonder
der wonder labor is so restless and fights for
higher wages; $25 a week is not
enough here now days. Notwithstand Notwithstanding
ing Notwithstanding labor eats bread for breakfatt
and supper and meat once a week and

run unless a strong pressure was

all his time to make a living and there
was nothing in the office for him but
his own sense of duty done and a lot
of hostile criticism from other people

of men. He says 25 per cent of the

that a good many college men enlist,
and the proportion of high school boys
and others anxious to round out their

very considerable. The navy, in fact,
has become a great school, and a term
of enlistment in it is valuable to any
young American. Ocala folks are al always

Franklin performance is showing more motorists every day that shock absorbers, radiator thermo thermo-meters
meters thermo-meters and anti-freeze mixtures are crutches which they can. throw away when they buy a Franklin Car.
The Franklin needs none of these accessories because it is light, flexible and. direct air cooled.
Franklin owner's records show that with the pound of heavy, rigid weight eliminated, blowouts are
almost unknown and punctures average only one in every 4141 miles.
Naturally, a car constructed on such a principle costs less to run -and to keep in running condition.
Just how much less is a revelation to those unfamiliar with Franklin owner's records:
20 miles to the gallon of gasoline.
12000 miles to the set of Ureal'
50 per cent slower yearly depreciation.
