PHOSLIME MEN MEET
All the state traveling men of the
Florida Soft Phosphate & Lime com company
pany company were present at a semi-annual
meeting at the offices of the company
The object of the meeting was to
compare notes and devise the best
methods for placing Phoslime in every
nook and corner of the state.
Reports from every section of the
territory were gone over and they
were most satisfactory to the stock stockholders
holders stockholders and officers. Every one of
the company's traveling men is a
hustler and there is probably not' a
better organized publicity force in
connection with any concern in the
state than that of the Florida Soft
Phosphate and Lime Company.
Considering that Phoslime was en entirely
tirely entirely unknown two years ago the re
cord of the company's business is
most remarkable. Mr. W. S. Hilands,
president, says that the season's sales
are so far in advance of their expecta expectations

If the Flanders Drive Goes Far
Enough, It May Cause Holland
to Join the Allies
Washington, Aug. 1. The allied
assault on the German flank has made
a profound impression here, because
in the judgment of many American
officers it was directed against the
most vulnerable point on the entire
German front. A complete success
for the Allies in this offensive will be
an immediate answer to the U-boat
The possibilities of a new offensive
is produced in the suggestion that if
the allied front be extended to the
Dutch frontier the Netherlands might
join the Allies.
