From the very beginning, when we

comfortable day coac' equipped with

wicker chairs and green velvet carpet,
to the last hour, we had a good time.
We reached West Palm Beach at 10
p. m. and were met by a delegation of
ladies who sent us to our respective
sleeping places, as all delegates had
their meals at The Gables, a nice little
hotel directly across the street from
the First Congregational church, vhere
all of the meetings were held. The
church was nicely decorated with
vines and ferns and quantities of beau beautiful
tiful beautiful Bougainvillae.
The convention opened on Tuesday
morning, Nov. I'J, at 9 o'clock, in the
parish hall of the church with a meet meeting

Woman's Educational Association, the

Shakspere Club, Order of Eastern Star
the Woodmen Circle and the Girls' So

cordial welcome to the Feneration, to

which our president, Mrs. Hooker

made a most fitting and gracious re

These reports brought forth much ar argument

and full of good ideas and it was
a a reed that the club and library ex extension

activity. Mrs. Blaekman of Winter
Park made a plea for the protection of
the robin, while Mrs. Kirk Monroe
made a splendid talk on the ruthless
destruction of the white heron. At the

close of these discussions, it being
nearly 12:30 oclock, the fixst session of
the 18th annual meeting of the Fed Federation

At 2:30 we were again at our posts
to listen to the splendid papers by the

chairman of the committees on educa

tion, household economics, social con conditions,
ditions, conditions, forestry, art, music, civics,
civil service reform, health and legis

lation. The paper on household eco economics,
nomics, economics, written by our Mrs. Duval,

was full of fine ideas and received
much applause. The chairman on
civics had a sample of her wire trash

baskets which are fine indeed, and it is

throughout the state has been done,

parks and play grounds started, show

clean towns has taken a firm hold upon

the people. Mrs. Frank Jennings of

Jacksonville as chairman of the legis

lative committee, made a fine talk on
the reform school at Marianna, its
condition and needs and urged that the
club women inform themselves more
fully upon this subject and through
our senators endeavor to obtain a
larger appropriation for same.

With an appropriation made upon myi

Aug. 5. 19ii9. the department of state
was completely reorganized. There
were created divisions of Latin-American
affairs and of far eastern, near
eastern and western European affairs.
The law otlices of the department
were greatly strengthened. There were
addel foreign trade advisers to co-operate
with the diplomatic and consular
bureaus and the politico-geographical
divisions in the innumerable matters
where commercial diplomacy or con consular

Flat tariffs are out of date. Nations
no longer accord equal tariff treatment

that it is a very uncertain drug. But
the Court Pharmacy has a remedy for

place of calomel absolutely, and still
be harmless, causing no restriction of
habit or diet. This remedy is Dodson's
Liver Tone.
Dodson's Liver Tone is a pleasant pleasant-tasting

the liver gently and surely and relieves
constipation and biliousness so prompt promptly
ly promptly that it has become a dependable
remedy in thousands of homes in the
United States. There are scores of
families in this vicinity who will not
be without it in the house and who
would not think of starting on a trip
without a bottle of It.
The Court Pharmacy has sold so
much Dodson's Liver Tone that it is
convinced of its merit and will give
any person his 50 cents back, who buys
a bottle and does not find that it takes
the place of calomel to perfection. Ad.
