If you have you will know the hard
work that goes with training a "body

Of course there are exceptions.
Sometimes the director is fortunate
enough to have at his command a
body of vocalists so apt and talented,
such good sight-readers and generally
good musicians and the work eases
itself to a large extent.
That happens to be the case with

wants the capital removal for the

the capitol in any city liable to be a

One of the striking features of the
movement of farm population in the
United States is the steadily growing
demand for farm lands in Florida.
This movement comes from all over
the country north, east and west and
puts Florida well forward in the list
of the most active states in point of
number of farms sold in 1921 and
easily in the lead of all Southern
states. These conclusions are drawn
from a "report just issued by the
Strout Farm Agency, which last year
sold 323 Florida farms. Orange groves
constitute the greatest attraction to
these buyers from other states but
many of them on arriving here find
the tsock raising and general produce
farms so profitable that they abandon
their plans for fruit growing and take
up truck farms and stock raising instead.
