Hutchison got home Wednesday from Florida, where they left the elder Mrs. Hutchison with the W. F. Walkers at DeLand. Donald and his wife drove to Del Ray Beach to call on the Harold Cowans and have a swim In the Atlantic. The water was not particularly cold, Donald reports. Harold had begun setting cement piles for three houses he is to build for his uncle, Wood Cowan, the strip cartoonist. Houses ido not have basements there. No holes are dug for piles; instead the piles are driven Into the sand. No grass grows there except when the soil Is fertilized and watered. There are no cows in that section, for the soil raises no feed for them. Instead the inhabitants use condensed milk. The Hutchisons were taken with the native trees, which are pines and palms. The weather was delightful, really too warm at mid-day, though the nights were cool, and one morning the thermometer registered as low as 40 degrees above.
