The Maitland News vishes to congratulate the Winter Park Herald on the success of the special edition got ten out last week. The splendid layout and the promptness in publication show an attention to detail and care in compilation that do great credit to the paper. The people of Maitland appreciate the fine way in the Maitland section was handed. -- GROWTH IN MAITLAND
On reading the article in the Herald on New Building in Maitlandduring the past year, we have been thinking back over the past tweleve months and find that we can count up over twenty houses in addition to those mentioned in the article, which to our own knowledge have been erected in Maitland during that period. This may look small to cities whose building permits run into the hundreds, but when we consider that it is about a twenty percent increase in the number of residences in the town we feel that Maitland is show. ing a very satisfactory gowth. When we come to consider the number of permanent business buildings that have gone up in the town this last year, we find that it is an increase of two hundred percent over the permanent buildings here one year ago.
buted to the Maitland Library are: McAllisters Grove by Marion Hill. Red and Black by Grace Richmond. Shavings by Joseph E. Lincoln. Two Shall be Born by Marie Conway Oemler. Tetherstones by Edith M. Dell. Dawn by Eleanor H. Porter. The librarian will be glad to receive lists of books which patrons are willing to donate and check those which the library needs. While the Association purchases a number of new books every year it is impossible to place all the desirable books on the shelves and it is a great help if frineds will donate such books as they

J. A. BROWN, VPres.

Currency is probably the most familiar form of cerdit in existence day, and its origin is of great interest
The earliest record of the issuance of bank notes gives their origin as about 1670, but in a vastly different form than that of today. The first bank notes were simply issued by goldsmiths to people who had left money in their custody, and these notes bore the name of a definite payee. The following is a specimen of one of the early notes.
Nov. 28, 1684.
I promise to pay untoye Rt. honble ye Lord North & Gray, or bearer ninety pounds on demand. For Mr. FRANCIS CHILD & Myself JNO ROGERS. It seems that the right to issue such notes as above was never questioned until their use became so wide. spread that the state was forced to step in to protect the interest of society at large. Then this right to issue notes was restricted to a select number of persons of well-known character, generally, but not always, incorporated as a bank. In our country today national banks have the right to issue notes of their own, but must first protect the notes by depositing Liberty Bonds or other suitable security with the Treasury department. Then the notes are printed in the government print. ing office, and countresigned by the President and Cashier of the issuing bank. Such notes are accepted by the public as readily as direct government obligations. All government notes and federal reserve notes are secured by gold or silver bullion which is held in the national treasury in Washington. Any person who holds a gold certificate can demand of the treasury department gold coin in exchange. Thus we find that gold and silver, principally gold form the basis of all national wealth. without this gold and silver held in reserve, our currency would be worth nothing more than the governments guarantee, but the tremendous wealth in actual gold which is held as a reserve behind these notes makes them just as good as the bullion itself, be cause the reserve is never touched unless an equal amount of paper money is first cancelled and destroyed,
Grass and //eeds
IYo; you noticed how the grass grows this kind of weather? Look at the sand-filled brick pavements in some of the residential sub
urbs you know. Do you see how the the grass grows between the bricks?
It is expensive to keep such a street neat and even heavy traffic will not keep the grass down this season of the year?
That's why we are using a rock base asphalt type of pavement in GREENWOOD GARDENS. There won't be any cracks for weeds and grass to grow in.
And we are not letting any grass grow under our feet" either. The city is paving all the streets in the first section this summer. (See reso. lutions published herein.)
If you ever expect to own a nice home you should investigate Greenwood Gardens now. Several of our June Brides are still available at prices that cant be duplicated later.
Don't let any grass grow under YOUR feet
