They showed their strength and the manner in which they were built by standing up under this heavy fishing'. When tired of fishing we sailed over into the lee of Rodriguez Key where we had supper and spent the night. During the night a fi6rce wind arose and a storm came up. Early the next morning some other fishermen who had spent the night at this point and found it too rough for them, took the inside route back to Miami. But the four Massilon fishermen decided that they would buck the storm and work back up to Angel Fish Key for that night, which they did. The fshing was not so good as the day before, although the rough sea made it just as exciting. This was really Buck Bal- tzly's day as he had two big fights, one with a nine pound grouper, which a jewfish swallowed and kept Buck busy for about half an hour. How- ever, the jewfish got away, but not until he had chewed and mutilated the grouper Buck finally landed. Later in the day he also hooked a fifty potmd amber jack just off Careys Fort Light, which gave him the fight of his life. All the men had good fishing, but these were the two high spots of that day's catch which amounted to about forty fish. That night we anchored again at Angel Fish Key, but kept a little far- ther out from the flats than on the way down, and had a good night's rest." The next morning we started back for Miami content with our trip. On the way up we developed engine trouble, and while the skipper was re- pairing his engine the lines were thrown overboard for still fishing. In the hour or so which elapsed about 41~0 feet of line was let out, and when the boat moved out and took up the Mack of the line, Baltzly had a strike from a dolphin, and another fight began, "and a thirty minute fight, such as only a dolphin could put up, took place. The dolphin was brought within a few feet of" the boat, and must have weighed thirty potmds. Buck w-a~ tired. We do not know how tired the dolphin was, but at this time the action was a little too vigorous, either by the fish of by Buck, the line parted and the dolphin was left for another fisherman, and Buck's heart was bro- ken for the rest of the trip. We landed back at Elser pier that evening about 5 o'clock. The usual crowd was there to see the sportsmen fishing cruisers come in, and we were probably the tenth of the twenty-five or thirty to arrive. Our two fish hox- es were full, the fish compartment un- der the stern was full, and fish were covered up on the deck. An excited crowd stood on the pier when they were uncovered, and more "obs" and "ahs" were expressed when the fish box lids were raised, and, of course, we who had caught the fish stood out where all could see, and each of us wearing a big broad grin. It certainly was our day, and We were the heros of the occasion. The large fish rack on the pier was dragged up and the hooks were soon filled, also a big pile on the deck at the bottom. The pho- tographer was called and we four fish- erlnen and about three thousand others on the pier tried to get into the pic- ture. The catch numbered one htm- TENNIS hite e "KEDS" f What Is Advertising? Advertising is nothing more or less than ~desmanship. By advertising you sell to several hundred people at one time instead of to the single individual. Advertising does not belong to the realm of magic, it is ability to talk of the product in plain, honest and straightforward terms that ap- peal to the reason and desires of the people whose trade is sought. How do you advertise? There are no end of ways in which you may advertise; there is the bill-board, the circular, the poster, the window display, the circular letter, the personal letter, by word of mouth, and the newspaper, the best method of them all. What does advertising do for you?--All advertising is in- tended to create good will for the product or service adver- tised. Your advertising should create good will for your store throughout your trading aera and thereby increase the volume of your business or your annual turn.ova..

Great fish- ing good fishermen and wonderful Pflneger reels and lines. The two reels, bought in January, 1923, stood the fishing which the four men gave them through about twenty- five different days of fishing on the ocean among the Florida Keys, and they sho',; no signs of wear. There are other reels highly recommended, much touted, but so far as the four gentlemen above named are concerned, Pfluegers are good enough for them, because tllc Pfluegers delivered the goods.
