In 1885, Alex Wattles founded the Palatka (FL) Weekly Advertiser [LCCN: sn95047296], also referred to as the Palatka Advertiser, as an unaffiliated newspaper. There is evidence of a sibling title, the Palatka (FL) Daily Advertiser [LCCN sn95047295], in 1894. Little is known of the publishing history or patterns of either title. The Palatka Weekly Advertiser, in any case, was published until January 2, 1902 when, Wattles sold it to William Russell of Crescent City (FL) and M.M. Vickers. The newspaper then merged with the Crescent City (FL) News [LCCN: sn95026089] to form the Palatka (FL) News and Advertiser [LCCN: sn95047297]. The Palatka News and Advertiser, which describes itself as "Democratic", was also commonly referred to as the Palatka (FL) News [LCCN: sn95047298], which became the actual title in March 1905, then reverted back to the Palatka News and Advertiser [LCCN: sn95047299] in November 1908 and ceased publication sometime after December 3, 1920. William A. Russell remained the editor, and the paper was published by Russell & Vickers. Palatka is located along the upper St. Johns River and now (ca. 2008) serves as the county seat of Putnam County, Florida. Florida's great railroad lines, the Florida Southern Railroad; the Georgia Southern and Florida Railroad; the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railroad; and the St. Augustine and Palatka Railway used Palatka as a junction for routes continuing on to the west and south. Palatka was a major shipping point for citrus, timber, and other agricultural produce, as well as a stopping point for tourists to Florida. Routes connecting east joined the cities of Gainesville, in north central Florida, and Cedar Key and eventually Tampa, both on Florida's Gulf Coast, to Jacksonville, Florida's economic hub in the years following the Civil War. Routes connecting south continued to Miami and eventually to Key West. Fire devastated Palatka on November 7, 1884. Tourists arriving there by train, finding no accommodations, continued south. Palatka's citrus industries were devastated the following year with the freeze of 1895 that destroyed most of the region's orange groves. These events marked the southward slip of both tourism and transportation. And, Jacksonville's rise as an economic center with an excellent seaport and railroad junctions of its own further weakened Palatka. Crescent City, Florida, is located south of Palatka also in Putnam County near the St. Johns River and not far from the south bound railroad lines out of Palatka. Crescent City had a prosperous downtown at one time. Its star faded, however, along with that of Palatka and might have suffered as the result of Palatka's transportation strengths. --E. Kesse, University of Florida Digital Library Center.

The Palatka Weekly Advertiser, in any case, continued until January 2, 1902, when, Wattles sold it to William A. Russell of Crescent City and M.M. Vickers. The newspaper then merged with the Crescent City News to form the Palatka News and Advertiser . A self-described “Democratic” paper, the Palatka News and Advertiser, was also commonly referred to as the Palatka News which became its actual title in March 1905. The paper reverted back to its original title, the Palatka News and Advertiser , in November 1908. Russell continued to the edit the paper, which he published together with Vickers. The Palatka News and Advertiser ceased publication sometime after December 3, 1920. Palatka is located on the upper St. Johns River and serves as the seat of Putnam County. Palatka was crossed by a number of railroads--the Florida Southern; the Georgia Southern and Florida; the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West; and the St. Augustine and Palatka--and served as a junction for routes continuing to the west and south. In its heyday, Palatka was a major shipping point for citrus, timber, and other agricultural produce, as well as a stopping point for tourists to Florida. On November 7, 1884, a fire devastated Palatka. Tourists arriving by train, finding no accommodations, continued south. Ten years later, cold weather destroyed most of the region’s orange groves. Furthermore, Jacksonville’s rise as an economic center with an excellent seaport and railroad junctions of its own came at the expense of Palatka. These events marked the beginnings of the southward slip of both tourism and transportation in Florida.

The horn of a unicorn wag shown at
Windsor castle and In 1598 was valued
at over 10,000. Lewis Vertomannua,
a gentleman of Rome, saw with his
own eyes two unicorns presented to the
sultan of Mecca by a king Of Ethiopia.
They were In a park of the temple of
Mecca: and were not much unlike a colt
of 30 months of age. This was in 1503.
Tbe animal became extinct about tbe
end of the seventeenth century.
The unicorn Is represented in the -ruins
at Persepolls, and it was adopted
by the Persians as the emblem of speed
and strength. In tbe middle ages it
was tbe symbol of purity. The unicorn .
hated tbe elephant, and It used to whet
Its horn on a stone before It struck the
foe In the abdomen. .No family, by the
way, should be without one of these
horns, the average length of which Is
four feet They defend from witch- '
craft Thus Torquemada had one al al-ways
ways al-ways on bis writing table. Further Furthermore,
more, Furthermore, a drinking cup made from one
will be a safeguard against poison, as
will the ground powder put In art tilt,--
and Indeed the wells of the palace of '
St Mark could not be poisoned In the
good old days of adventure because
these beneficent horns had been
thrown Into them. Unicorn's born was
formerly sold by apothecaries at 120 :
an ounce. Boston Journal.

"Have you ever noticed that nearly
all policemen get fat?" asked a man
who keeps his eyes open. "This would
seem to disprove the theory that walk walking

ing reducing superfluous weight I have known
new policemen to Btart on their beats
weighing no more than 125 pounds. In
six months they would tip the scales at
150 and In a year reach tbe 200 mark.
It must be tbe slow sauntering In the
open air that does It for I have noticed
thnt while policemen grow fnt the
house sergeants, who are confined to
the stations, are Invariably thin. Those
who patrol tbe streets gain the maxl-
mum weight in about three years. Tbo
muscles then harden, and despite their
apparent burden of flesh the men usu usually

Standing on the walk, leading to
the Washington monument in the
Capitol City, were th'ree students of
Washington and Lee University
from Florida and a distinguished
looking gentleman recognizable at a
glance as a Congressman. They
were about to part, for the day had
been spent'in visiting Uncle Sam's
places of business, including his
white" dwelling and the honored
host there. The Congressman took a
car for home, the students walked
liesurely towards the monument, the
Congressman the subject of their
thoughts. One of them said, "He is
a brilliant gentleman, l use mm
much ;" another said. "1 never met
him before to-day, Beems as though
I have known him ten years;" the
third said, "Yes, boys, he deserves
all your remarks, he has not a su
perior in the State of Florida; I have
learned many lessons from him. Do
you remember him assisting an old
lady off the car to-day, and catching
a hat the wind was tossing down the
Btreet, the appreciative looks of the
old lady and the thanks of the man?
I could have caught that hat, it pass
ed me first I will catob the next
