BOARD OF TRADE
Business and Professional Men
Gather in Force and Adopt
Tilth Palatka and Putnam County."
The Palatka Board of Trade closed
another year of successful effort for the
development of Palatka and Putnam
county by giving a banquet at the rooms
of the Palatka Athletic Association
last Monday night.
This affair was attended by fully 100
representative business and professional
men of Palatka, and is unique in the his history
tory history of the city in that in all that body
of men there was not one thought other
than of a determined purpose to all unite
under the banner and leadership of the
board for a forward movement in this
city and county.
The banquet was a happy thought, car

manager of the Florida Fuel and Fertili Fertilizer

Members of the Board of Trade.
I am glad to.say that the
march of progress and prosperity has
gone steadily forward in our city and
county, and we can look back with a
certain amount of pride to what has been
accomplished during the past year.
In January, Vtm, the first Bulletin of
the Palatka board of trade was issued.
This is a valuable publication, setting
forth the advantages of our city and
county, and our citizens should endeavor
to increase Its usefulness by rendering
such assistance to the committee in
charge as will enable them to publish
this journal In a manner best calculated
to give the outside world attractive in
formation in regard to Palatka and Put
nam county. I note with pleasure that
our business men take advertising space
in this journal sufficient to about cover
the cost of its publication.
The Squier Lumber company's mill
which was being constructed last fall, is
now running on full time and their bus
iness has increased to such an extent as
to necessitate the erection of a large
planing mill which is now being built,
The Sanitary Steam laundry began
operation in August and is being well
patronized by our citizens.
Messrs. Porter Bros, have established a
saw mill in the north part of the city
which gives employment to quite a num number
ber number of men.
The Selden Cypress Door Co. has
added to its already large plant a consid
crablc number of machines for the man
ufacturc of hard wood veneer doors, thus
increasing the number of men employed,
The Florida Fuel & Fertilizer Co. is
now building a large plant for the manu
facture of fuel and fertilizer from the
peat beds lust north of the citv.
Mr. F. J. Cunningham, a New York
contractor, has under construction a
number of dwellings, all of which arc
handsome in design and will add greatly
to the appearance of the city.
One of the best evidences of the pro progress
gress progress and prosperity of any community
is the demand for real estate. Never be
fore in the history of Palatka has so much
property changed hands as during the
past year, and in each instance the con considerations
siderations considerations were so satisfactory as to
show a decided increase in values.
A.iother one of the evidences of the
progress and prosperity of our city is the
number of conventions that have been
held within our gates In the past year.
A further proof of prosperity may be
noted in. the fact that a year ago not an
automobile was in Palatka; whereas, to
day, besides those owned by quite a.
number of our citizens, there are six of
these vehicles for public hire.
In June the general government Inaug Inaugurated

divided into two districts, and if the in increase

as in the past, additional carriers will
have to be employed in order to give the
people adequate service. .

among themselves as much as they please
about its advantages and it may have

advertised, the people outside know
nothing about them and consequently
are not attracted; and the best organiza

conducted as a business proposition.
One that will not be an occasional, spas

In conclusion 1 desire to express my

that has been given me by the various
committees and also by individual mem
bers of the board of trade.

politics, but "blest be the tie that binds"
there is to be no politics in the Palatka
board of trade. It is a solid union of
business men bent on securing for the
i city and county that recognition to which
lita importance for the development of
anufacttrring industries and agricultural
hursulti entitles it an importance which
i point of manifold advantage is sec-
lad to no other section in the southland.
Should be Killed or Cured.
The News has received the following
Editor Palatka News:
'For several months a poor miserable
looking dog has been allowed to run
around the streets of Palatka suffering
with the mange. The poor creature is a
pitiful looking sight to be running
around picking up whatever food it may
find, should not some one of the pub
lic authorities take it upon themselves to
rid this dog of such a miserable life?
Certainly. If the owner of the dog
doesn't care enough for it to cure it of
the disease, then the police department
should put a period to its miserable ex
istence. Tha dog certainly should not
be allowed to run the streets, for mange
is contagious. Sulphur ointment, car
bolic-acid washes, corrosive sublimate
in weak solution, and a decoction of
tobacco, of the green leaves of Indian
poke or itchweed are all useful applica
lions, and in most cases will elfect
cure. When- the mites have been de
stroyed the dog needs liberal feeding.
and perhaps some mud tonic, like iron
A little copperas desolved in his drink
is generally sufficient. Any doctor will
tell vou how much.
But the city of Palatka is not an asylum
for man2V dours. neither is it in the ouii

streets. Its plain duty is to shoot.

How tha Standard of Measurement

It U moat difficult for many persons

Need of Drainage.
Whatever is to the best interest of the
state, and county, is what every fair
minded citizen should advocate. The
United States government was looking
to the best interests of this state when it
gave Florida her swamp and overflowed
lands for the purpose of draining and de developing
veloping developing the state. Yes, twenty million
seven or eight hundred thousand acres
of land was given to the state by the
United States, for drainage, reclamation
and internal improvement.
What has the state done and who did
There has been a grab and a graft
whereby millions and millions of acres
of those lands have been appropriated
and obtained without any move what whatever
ever whatever towards their drainages, but worst
of all those same corporations and capi capitalists
talists capitalists who obtained those lands by the
assistance of the politicians and news newspapers
papers newspapers work against drainage and have
virtually destroyed what drainage laws
we did have. O yes, they too advocate
drainage, but oppose every move in that
.The Etoniah Canal and Drainage Co.,
was the first to organize under state
laws to drain swamp and overflowed
lands. That company received a legis legislative
lative legislative grant of thirty five thousand acres
of overflowed lands in the four town townships
ships townships in which they were to operate but
the I. I. Board deeded said lands to a
wealthy lumber company who had no
thought of drainage, therefore the first
attempt to drain any of the swamp and
overflowed lands within the meaning of
the act whereby t lorida received over
twenty millions of acres, was crowded
out, and the charter was sold to an ad advertising
vertising advertising colony scheme, which estab established
lished established Florahome, and we want to say
to the people of Putnam county that the
Etoniah drainage is not a sand flat
where potatoes and celery will grow by
being highly fertilized, but that it is a
rich quality of muck land that has pro
duced this year over eighty bushels of
corn to the acre without fertilizer; Irish
potatoes and other crops accordingly.
Also we have had the very best of gar gardens
dens gardens during the late dry spell, without
irrigation, as muck draws its moisture
from the water level below, therefore a
heavy ro'- will not make it wet, nor a

In the old days In New York city,
before there was a Metropolitan or a

center of the theatrical world was
around Fourteenth street, Max Maret-
aek and Strakoacb were prominent at
tha old Academy of Music. There was
a keen rivalry between them. Stra
koacb bad NUason, and MareUek was
exploiting Dl Murska.
By some error of dates both were
booked for New York at the same
time. Strakosch was at the Academy
and Maretzek. having closed a poor
season elsewhere, bad halted In New
York before going to Philadelphia and
secured a week at the Lyceum theater

strong bills at both places. Each man

agers managers began to put out "paper" to fill
the houses. Alfred Joel was tbe busl-
bess man for Maretzek and an adept
at "papering" when necessary. With
a house packed from parquet to gal
lery Joel had counted the boxes, found
only $100 In tbe bouse and announced
It to Max when the curtain fell be
tween tbe acts.
This was serious to Max. Tbe ever

There was bustling after tbe per
