Plum Creek Lady Down in Florida Mrs. C. B. Albright, well known woman of Plum Creek township, who recently went to Florida, where for some years she and her huaband has maintained a winter home, has written the following letter to the Upper Des Molnes. The letter is written from Lake Helen, under the date of October 10: Dear Editor: After ten years of absence, I am again back in my old haunts In Florida. Many whom I knew here I find have passed over and the younger generation are In possession of the places. The old home we once owned is rather dilapidated, but still Inhabitable, and It is surprising to find so much left on the place, as the place has been vacant most of the time. This part of Florida Is over-built and rent is cheap and many places vacant. This city haa increased In population since our first arrival here 20 years ago, but not in the center of the town, but around It on the outskirts. When we came here first, the high school students went to Delnnd in an auto and trailers. There were nine pupils. Now a big bus seating a hundred can scarcely accommodate them. Many are forqed to stand by the time they are all gathered. None carry dinner baskets, as connected with the school is a splendid cafeteria, where warm meals are served at half price. If anyone is contemplating comlm? to Florida for the winter and will write me about how much they can afford and just what they want I will give them information that will assist them and save them money and inconvenience. Now if this escapes the waste basket, I will write you some more about Florida. Fall weather Is approaching and with it we can expect fog, rain and sleet. Streets will be wet and slippery and windshields will be coated with ice. Driving under such conditions makes extra precautions essential. In these articles I have tried to stress the Importance of constant attention when driving—not one second should be given to any other matters while you are driving. Long strips of straight pavement encourage higher speed, driving becomes more or less monotonous and invites inattention. Just one moment of Inattention, especially when weather conditions are not very favorable, may put you out of circulation forever. New modes in fashion call for modern cycwear. To be smart in appearance, you should wear glasses that are in style —designed to become you.
