AUGUST 14, 1926
One hundred dollars is the fine im: posed for destroying white Way lights.
On Friday night some rowdies drove through town shooting up the White Way lights, and hit three in their progress. The town authorities consider this an act of vandalism and lawlessness, without excuse or reason, and propose to punish any such infraction of the law to the full extent of the penalty.
Four years ago a gasoline tank and four bags of mule mash disappeared one Saturday night from Mr. Dear. borns woodshed. Last Friday night M. C. Bryan, town marshall, raided a still northeast of town and brought in among other things a gasoline tank corresponding to the one lost by Mr. Dearborn. Through information gleaned from various sources, its his tory during that period has been well established. All that Mose fell down on was the mash, chicken feed being the present contents of the tank.
By the way, the Maitland police department has been busy lately, seven arrests were made last Sunday.
The signs of damage done by the storm have been removed except in the case of some property owners who have not yet cleared up their property. While the water in the lakes and streams is still high, most of the muddy spots on the roads have dried up, and there seems to have been little damage done.
The two Maitland signs at the north and south limits of the town are being redecorated and put in order. Both these signs were in bad condition owing to constant exposure to weather and the one at the south has been down since the storm when it was blown from its stadnard.
The White Way which runs from the south boundry of Orlando to north line of Orange County has now been extended through Seminole County into Altamonte, with a short gap between the north corporate limits of Maitland and the south corporate limits of Altamonte. In this short stretch it is hoped that the property owners will before long put in the lights, thus making the line complete. The Altamonte White Way runs from the south limits of the town to the station and is being financed from the town taxes. RICH D PASTOR PREACHES
Rev. J. B. Gordon, pastor of the Third Presbyterian Church in Rich. mond, Virginia, preached at the evening service last Sunday in the Presby. terian Church. Mrs. Gordon was Miss May Moremen and was a ber of the first class at Rollins College. Mr. Gordon last visited Maitland twelve years ago, and preached in the Presbyterian Church, and in his congregation last Sunday were four who heard him preach at that service.
paving Assessment MONEY DUE NOW
All payments in full for paving as sessments are due this week. As the paper goes to press several payments have been made in full and as a number of property owners have signified that this is their intention it is thought that a considerable amount will be paid in before the time expires. All assessments which are not paid in full by the fourteenth will automatically go into the tenyear payment plan, the first installment being due next July.
A concrete platform has been built south of the Maitland Garage, which gives a much improved appearance to the establishment and provides a suit able place for washing cars and other repair work.
At the meeting of the County Commissioners last week J. H. Hill appeared before the commissioners ask: ing that the paving of the road through Eatonville be included in the first road building project. While the
final apportionment of roads will not
be made for several meetings, Mr. L. L. Payne and Mr. S. S. Sadler, through both of whose districts the road passes, assured Mr. Hill that they would give the matter their closest attention.
This road is of more than local im. portance, being the only road in this district included in the present paving projects and being the northernmost connecting link in the county between the state highways No. 2 and No. 3, both of which are being rebuilt at the present time.
The committee which is getting rights of way on state highway No. 2, running through Apopka is meeting with good success from such property owners as are at home. Many are away and cannot be approached until they return in the fall. This highway is to be 66 feet wide, with only one railway crossing, where the Seaboard and the A. C. L. both cross the road at the same point. This road runs into Orlando on Kentucky Avenue, and thence on down to Kissimmee, west of the present highway and the railroad.
Road No. 3, for which the rights of way are being obtained as far south as Lily Lake, is 100 feet in width all the way south from Sanford. After the road leaves Lily Lake the direction of the road is not announced, but it will join road No. 2 somewhere be tween there and Orlando, becoming from the point of intersection part of the latter.
There will be no services except Sunday School at the Presbyterian Church until the fourth Sunday in September, while the pastor in north on his vacation.

Only those who are fortunate enough to have spent a summer in Florida know the full beauty that the state can offer in luxuriant greeneryabove, below and around us. All shades and tones of green are here, covering ugly objects and tempering the brilliance of the sunlight.
But with this beauty comes one drawback – often this abundance grows into a riot which overruns fences and mars the neatness of our roadsides. Only by constant attention can we keep this growth of vegetation under control. The town authorities do what they can, but funds are always low this time of year and there has been much extra work to be done on roads and bridges since the storm.
Cannot the property owners undertake to clean up their own roadsides? Those who are away do not realize the demoralized appearance that comes with the growth of weeds. In many cities the work is done by the city and assessed to the property-owners but Maitland has not yet taken that step. How much better it would be if each one would take a personal responsi bility and pride in the matter and relieve the already overworked street committee from this added burden. They are doing what they can and will cooperate further by getting
laborers for those who do not wish to attend to the work themselves.
Lets all get busy and see what we can do.

4] THE MAITLAND NEWS BUSINESS AND RELIGION and mean No, say Yes and mean Yes These things God hath joined to: COMBINED On the other hand business helps gether, work and worship, religion and
By W. R. G. Orwick
We hear in many quarters today that religion and other activities of life will not mix. We believe that this is a mistaken idea and that a different and much better attitude should be assumed if we are to keep our position in the rank and file of the nations.
we are admonished to be Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.” No idler can be a hightype Christian. God intended we should not be slothful in business, at the same time fervent in spirit, thus serving the Lord. And we can serve him best this way. Industry has more blessings than idleness. It is conducive to health, wealth, happiness, and, if honestly pursued, to growth in Christian Character.
The relation between religion and business is not one of antagonism. Men plead the press of business as an excuse for want of interest in spiritual things. But let us remember that to be a first rate business man does not involve being a fourth or fifth rate Christian. In order to enrich oneself at trade, it is not necessary to starve oneself in religion. Work and worship are not opposed.
The relation between business and religion is not one of separation. Business does not require a man when he closes the church door behind him on Sunday to say good-bye to his religion for another week. It is not true that Sunday is the day for religion. Religion has business with business. Business has business with religion.
The relation between business and religion is one of combination. Not slothful in business, at the same time fervent in spirit” That religion is worthless which leaves out business. If a man will not work, neither shall he eat.” If a man provides not for his own household, he is an infidel, and has denied the faith. That business is wicked which leaves out religion. It will cheat, and bribe, and crush the poor. The only way is the combina tion of the two.
There are ways in which godliness helps business. "Godliness is profit able in all things.” Godliness makes a man honest. Godliness makes a man prudent and thoughtful. Godliness makes a man firm and decided. A Christian must be able to say No
religion. Business is a school of knowledge. It is a school of practice. It tests, and therefore, strengthens, our graces. It is a school of integrity. It is a source of wealth, which can be consecrated to religion. "What God has joined let no man put asunder.”
