VOLUME I

Maitland Avenue to Have Modern Stores
DAILY WACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Beginning Monday morning, July 26th, the Presbyterian Church will hold its first Vacation Bible School. This is the first school of this kind to be held in Maitland, and will be a community affair. Boys and girls from all denominations are welcome. No denominational subjects will be taught. The ages are from three to fourteen. The school will last five days, and the hours will be from nine to twelve A. M. At about ten oclock each morning the school will drop its work and go out into the yard for a halfhour of play and games. Recreation is a big part of the work of the school, and a good time is guaranteed for all those who attend.
The older girls will be taught how to make pine needle and raffia baskets, and a class in woodwork will be held for the boys.
On Friday night at 8 oclock come mencement exercises will be held. Diplomas will be given those who attend every day and finish the work.
There are no charges for this school. All the courses are free to the boys and girls of our community who are within the range of the above men. tioned agesthree to fourteen. We hope to secure the school house for that period, but posters and other information specifying the place and other details, will be given out later on in the month.
This is a big opportunity for the children, and parents should see that their boys and girls are enrolled in the school.
TOWN RECEIVES MONEY FOR WORKS BONDS
Final payment on the 40,000.00 bond issue for the Maitland water system, which was voted last fall, has been paid over to the town by the Wright-warlow Company of Orlan do, who bid in the bonds at ninetyfive. Half of this money was paid some time ago, but there has been some delay in closing up the transac:
(Continued on Page 4)
W. T. Clare has broken ground for a twostory hollowtile store building with face brick front to be erected at the south end of his lot on Maitland Avenue, north of George Street. The building will be well-built and mod: ern in every respect, an asset to the town and neighborhood. The street frontage will be forty two feet, con taining two stores. On the second floor there will be two apartments, with four rooms, bath and two sleep. ing porches in each apartment. The building is being erected by DeNoy. ells and Marsh, general contractors.
This building is opposite the White Way Restaurant, and is an indication that business is tending to extend north along Maitland Avenue.
FIRE DEPARTMENT ORGANIZES
The Maitland Fire Department is organizing under the direction of J. A. Brown and J. H. Bennett. Copies of the Orlando rules and regulations have been secured from Chief Dean and will be revised and used as a basis for the organization of the Maitland department. Fire drill is being held twice a week under the instruction of Mr. Foster of Winter Park. Every man who is willing to help is asked to come out and practice so that he may be of real service in time of need. The department is doing all in its power to provide protection by se curing a water supply until the time when city water is available. To this end a temporary brick road will be laid immediately down to Lake Sy. belia from Horatio Avenue, so that the engine can pump from there. As the distance from the shore of the lake to the post office corner is only 600 feet, the 1500 feet of hose which the department owns will cover all the business district and make a repetition of the recent packing house fire im possible. Other lakes and the two branches will be used for water in the outlying districts. For day calls, phone Maitland rage or Maitland Electric Company. For night calls, phone . I. Strong
тоwN sвсURING поo Foот HIGHWAY RIGHT OF WAY ALONG VANDERPOOL AVENUE
Deeds have been drawn up by the town attorney and are now being executed for a hundredfoot right-ofway along Vanderpool Avenue north of Packwood Avenue, where the new route of state highway No. 3 will come through the town. Rights-ofway have already been secured for this highway through Seminole county, giving a hundredfoot road straight through the country from Sanford to Maitland. Contracts for drainage and grading have already been let as far as the SeminoleOrange County line, where the road enters Maitland just east of Lake Seminary. The route through Maitland runs down Vanderpool Avenue to a point south of Packwood, where it will swing west and strike the present highway near Lily Lake. The route south of that point has not been determined. By continuing the hundredfoot street through the town, congestion will be prevented and the beautiful trees which line Vanderpool Avenue can be saved as the plan is to have a double drive through the center of the town. Most of the property owners have already been approached on the subject and have signified their will ingness to give the required land. As soon as these deeds are in, steps will be taken by the state to start work on this portion of the highway.
NEW FIRM OF CONTRACTORS
FORMED
G. B. DeNoyelles and F. T. Marsh have opened up a contracting business with headquarters at Maitland. Mr. DeNoyelles has been living in Win. ter Park for sometime and has done considerable work in this vicinity. Mr. Marsh was an architect and contraco tor in New Jersey before coming to Maitland last winter. He is town building inspector.

volunTEER FOR FIRE DEPARTMENT
Maitland has a fine fire engine, 1,. 500 feet of hose, and is getting fur. ther necessary equipment as rapidly as possible. All that is needed for adequate fire protection is a trained body of men. We have the oppor: tunity of practice under an able fire. man. Are you men going to avail ourselves of that chance, so that when your home is threatened with fire you can help to save itWhen your business is in danger you may prevent its loss? When your town faces destruction you can avert itIt is for you to decide whether the expenditure made by the town in this expensive equipment shall be thrown away or shall bring in a thousand-fold return. Yours is the opportunity to bring credit to your town and honor to yourself? Who will respond
COWPEAS VERSUS WATER LILIES
We fiind it hard to determine whether it is the absence of the lily pads in Lily Lake or the presence of the cowpeas around the shore which is chiefly responsible for the improved appearance of that bit of water. And this query presents itself as a corol. lary. Will Lily Lake have to be re. named Pea Pond?
ROOF ON TOWN HALL
The municipal building is now under cover and the roughing in for both plumbing and wiring has been come pleted. The contractors estimate that the building will be completed in four weeks time. DUPLEx APARTMENT PROGRESSING RAPIDLY
J. G. Friedland has finished the roof on the two apartment house which he is building on Inter Street. The roughing in of the wiring and plumbing is completed and the apart ments will be ready for occupancy before fall. This is a new type of building for Maitland, and marks an other step in her development.
BUYS Home AT ALTAMONTE

A GOOD Proposition
No doubt there are many Maitland people who have safe. deposit boxes in Winter Park and Orlando banks, and who find it rather inconvenient to go so far in getting anything out of them.
These boxes are probably paid for until the first of the year, but why wait six months to move your valuables to a much more convenient vault
Here is our proposition: To those people who own boxes in other places, and who will find it more convenient to have a box in their own town, WE WILL GIVE ABOX WITHOUT CHARGE UNTIL JANUARY FIRST
We have only about sixty safedeposit boxes left, and they will be given to the first callers. After January first the charge for these boxes will be at the rate of 2.00 per year.
This offer is not limited to customers of the bank, but is open to any Maitland resident.

A NEW spirit ABROAD IN THE LAND
From Manufacturers Record Never in the near half century of the work of this paper for the South has there been such a Southwide spread of creative upbuilding work. From Virginia to Texas people every. where are showing a spirit of activity for larger achievements. As one outcome of this the Manu. facturers Record is daily flooded with more interesting articles, more items of news voluntarily sent in from all parts of the South than ever before in its history. Bankers, manufacture ers, merchants and business men gen erally are showing an enthusiasm for constructive, creative work, which guarantees a more widespread and larger progress in everything that makes for human advancement than the South has ever known before. It is a revival, but on a larger, wider scale, with much more behind it of that enthusiastic, allconquering spirit which after 1876 took possession of the South until the fearful panic fol. lowing the Baring failure brought on general depression throughout the na tion. This spirit shows a determination on the part of Southern people to work for the upbuilding of their own country. Southern capital and Southern brains and brawn are being thrown into constructive work with unwonted energy and enthusiasm, and coincident with this is a nationwide awakening to the fact that the South is the coming El Dorado of American development, unmatched in its resources and opportunities by any other like area in the world. Southern railroads have been make ing larger earnings than those of any other section, and hundreds of millions of dollars have been added to the value of their securities, to the great enrichment of their stockhold. ers. - It is no longer necessary to try to convert Southern people to the possi. bilities of their country; no longer
necessary to try, in the language of
the day, to sellthe South to Northern and Western bankers and busness men. The country at large, as well as the South itself, is already soldon the South. The only ques. tion at issue is, at what place and in what industry or in what enterprise there is offered the largest amount of profit with a fair degree of certainty of success.
THE MAITLAND NEWS
In the press, on the platform, even sometimes in the pulpit, the sweep of Southern progress as it bears on the future of this section and of the country is being proclaimed, not only in the South but in all other sections. This is finding expression through a flood of news matter about towns and cities and states, about agriculture and industries, which crowds our mails to such an extent that many important special articles have been waiting their turn for monthssome of them for five or six monthsand many articles, good in themselves, have to be rejected because of the inability to find space for all that come. But in this very flood of enthusiastic work for the South is to be found the most unanswerable argument as to this wonderful awakening of the South to itself and of the country about the South.
