Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Broome, of Fort Pierce have been spending a few days at DeLand.  Mr. Broome is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thos. H.

     The interior of the City Market has been greatly improved the past week.  The partition which formerly divided the meat market and grocery store has been removed, both departments now being together, but each on the same side of the building as before.  An office has been built in the front part of the building between the two department.  The store has been much improved in appearance by the changes.  
     A subscriber at Sebastian writes that The TRIBUNE was in error in stating that the fish, roast beef, bread, milk and coffee served at the picnic at that pleasant town last week, were contributed by one of its enterprising citizens.  That, in fact, these were contributed by practically all of the citizens.  While we deem the error to insignifiicant to mention, we gladly make the correction at request, but will take advantage to add that if the petty animosites, bickerings and strife exhibited by some citizens in small towns could be buried too deep to resurrection, it would greatly add to the building of a town in which pleasant social, home life and community interest would predominate.
