Airplane Maps of Maitland Delivered

The funeral of Dr. Sydney C. Hardwick, who died at his northern home in Hingham, Mass., on June 16, took place at Christ Episcopal Church, in Quincy on the afternoon of June 19. The services were attended by many military men and organizations, and a large gathering of civilians. The body was escorted to Mt. Wol. laston Cemetery by three companies of the National Guard, and at the grave, full military honors were paid by the firing squad and buglar. Delegations from the Howitzer company, headquarters company and third bat. tery, all of Quincy, the . D. Club, the George F. Cryan post, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Massachusetts Medical Society and the Norfolk South Medical Association attended.
Dr. Hardwick, formerly a well known physician in Quincy, Mass., went to France with the 104th regiment of the 26th division and served as a regimental surgeon during the war. Receiving an honorable discharge following the close of the war he returned to Quincy and resumed his practice. His health, however, soon began to fail, the effect largely of his being gassed in the war, and he came to Maitland hoping a change would be beneficial. He purchased a grove on Fish Lake, just outside of town, where he built a beautiful home and was developing a splendid estate, while Dr. Hardwicks health, which while it improved for a time was al. ways precarious, prevented his taking an active share in public affairs, he always showed lively interest in the growth of Maitland, and stood for all that was best in its development.
During the past winter, Dr. Hard. wick has been steadily losing ground. Since he went north two months ago he has been very ill and has failed rapidly. He is survived by his wife and one son, Sydney C. Hardwick, .
Miss Lucy Brown is visiting at Sarasota and Mrs. . M. Brown left this week for North Carolina to remain during the summer.
Interesting Topographical Feature of Town Shown in Great Detail
The town engineer has received the airplane maps of Maitland, which were ordered last spring, and one of these can be seen at the office of the Maitland Realty Company. These maps show in detail all the features of the topography of Maitland, the streets, buildings, groves and lakes, giving an idea of the general character of the country and the relative location of different points in a way im: possible to gain from ordinary maps and photographs. The maps are made up from photographs of small sections which will overlap so much that any inaccuracies of measurement can be eliminated when the parts are fitted together. Section corners are marked before the pictures are taken so as to be visible in the original prints and by aid of these the pictures are adjusted to scale and are practically as exact as an ordinary map.
AMERICAN FRUIT GROWERS PLAN NEW PACKING HOUSE
The American Fruit Growers are making plans for rebuilding their packing house in Maitland. They expect to rebuild on the old site and to have the building ready for the opening of the next citrus season. A good packing house is an asset to any come munity and it is expected that the American Fruit Growers will put up a building which will be a credit to their organization and the Town of Maitland.
C. C. JACKSON SELLS HOME
C. C. Jackson has sold his home on Packwood Avenue to Calvin H. Hill. Mr. Jackson came to Maitland about five years ago, and bought a tract of land with a fine grove extending from the Dixie Highway down to Lake Sybelia. Here he built a home, as the house formerly occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Niver had recently burned. Two years ago Mr. Jackson platted the property and sold off all but the
J. H. BENNETT PURCHASES LOT IN GREENWOOD GARDENS
Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Bennett have purchased a lot in Greenwood Gardenson the corner of Marion Wayand Gamewell Avenue. They plan to build on this lot when business conditions make their present home un desirable.
FIRE TRUCK RECEIVEld in MAITLAND
Maitlands fire truck was delivered to the town last Friday and is being kept in the Maitland Garage until the municipal building shall be finished. The truck was tried out before delivery by Mr. Perkins, sales agent of the Reo Co. and Mr. Foster, chief of the Winter Park Fire Department, and found to be in perfect condition.
The fire department is being organ ized with . A. Brown, chief, J. H. Bennett, assistant chief and M. L. Kyle, driver. Instructions will be given by Mr. Foster, of Winter Park. Telephone calls for the truck may be made through the Maitland Garage, 1314W or the Electric Shop, 1201X. An extension will soon be placed in the house of J. H. Bennett for night use.
MAITLAND PEOPLE CELEBRATE THE FOURTH
Maitland sent a large representa tion to Daytona for the Fourth, where an unusually fine entertainment was given, including a parade with a large number of clever floats and a beautio ful display of fireworks in the evening Among the Maitland representatives were Mr. and Mrs. F. T. Marsh, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Horner and son, and Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Bennett and family, who spent the weekend at New Smyrna, motoring over to Day. tona on the fifthMr. and Mrs. F. H. Manning, Mr. and Mrs. D. G. Spain, Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan and Miss Agnes Moreman.

THE News, YOUR PAPER
The Maitland News has reached today, its tenth issue and the editor feels amply repaid, the time and trouble expended, the interest shown by the readers. The business houses are supporting us with enthusiasm and subscriptions are coming in well. Best of all our paper is being read.
In one way, however, the editor asks that the public help more than they have, and that is in the collecting of news items. Whatever is happen. ing in the town is of interest to some one. Have you bought a car, changed your residence, entertained a guest, taken a trip, gone on a picnic, gotten marriedLet us know so that we may print it in the paper. That is what a local paper is for and the News wishes to give full publicity to all local items. But unfortunately our staff is small, our time is fully oc. cupied and we cannot get out and find the news.
So we ask you, one and all, to help us with information as to what is hap. pening in town. Orif you have some thought or suggestion about town affairs that you would like to place be fore the people, send us a letter and we will be glad to print it. The News is your paper if you will help to make it that.

A Red Shirt
A red shirt used to be the official badge of a fireman, and membership in a fire company was a social distinction. Nowadays the red shirt has given way to a more effective if less picturesque uniform and the business of fire fighting has become a scientific study involving
the causes of fires and means of prevention.
Maitlands new fire engine preserves the traditional color, but is otherwise an upto-date machinemore effective than a dozen of the old time social bucket companies. With all the advances in fire prevention and control, insurance remains the only means of repaying
losses and damage that inevitably follow even the smallest of blazes.
NAre your properties adequately protected with insurance. Are your policies upto-date and are you sure that you are complying with | the provisions necessary to assure full payment in case of loss? It
is our business to protect you. We are doing it for many in north
Orange and south Seminole counties. Some of the policies have been
in force with us for twelve years.
Call or write us and we will be glad to talk over your insurance
ds without obligation.
