A "LINEN SHOWER." '

The Misses Williams Give a Party l.t
Honor of Miss Gary at the Home '
Mrs. osIat %. VA-L.
One of the prettiest parties that ha,
ever been given in Ocala was tho
"linen shower" that Misses CarriM
and afattie Williams gave Tuesda4
afternoon in compliment to Miss Lul-i
Gary who is to be married Thursday
evening to Mr. Edward T. Helvens-
ton.
The party was given at the elegant
home of the hostesses' sister, Mrs.
Richard S. Hall, and on this occasion
the house was most attractive. The
entire house was darkened except for
a dinm firelight and weird jack o'lan-
terns. These lanterns were placed in
the center of a large table and sur-
rounding them were the many pieces
ofbeautifuil linen. To each piece was
attached a long yellow ribbon and
each guest drew one, and as they pre-
$ehted the gift to ta.e bride-to-be read
,Jlilttle poem that accompanied it.
'lhe poems were all exceedingly
4er and witty and were quite amus-
For the cleverest poem Mrs. S.
,_,Eagleton was awarded the prize,
t:hich was a hatpin holder.
During the afternoon a very laugh-
able game was enjoyed. An adver-
tisement was pinned on the back of
each guest who was to guess the iden-
tity by the remarks of others. As so
many tied in this contest the prize,
another hatpin holder, was presented
to Miss Gary.
The refreshments at"this pretty lit-
l"te party wbre very dainty, and"elrd
beautifully served by Misses Wil-
liams, assisted by Mrs. Lee Miller and
Miss Mary Juhan. ,
It was the first affair of the season
and the ladies presented an attract-
ive picture in their new fall coseme.;
Miss Mattie Williams wore a pretty
flowered mull, and Miss Carrie Wil-
liams was dressed in white.
Miss Gary's gown was "Alice -ue
lonsdowne, and her hat was of the
same shade of blue, with a wreath of


pink rosebuds to add a touch of
color. This costume was extremely
becoming to Miss Gary's brunette
style of beauty. '
Misses Williams' gue's8s were Misses
Gary, Pereda, lziar,. 4lters, Me-
Creery, Whitfield, Edwards, Sullivan,

Miss Sara Elizabeth Harris, the
local and society editor of this paper,
left for Jacksonville over the Sea-
board yesterday and tonight will
leave, for St. Louis on the Times-
Union's special car.
The party will go over the Sbuthern
railway via Columbia, Henderson-
ville, Asheville, Knoxville, Louisville,
etc.
The route selected is a most charm-l
ing one and the scenery through1
which the Southern passes is as pretty,
as any in this country or any other
,country, Aitzerla & not excet-ed.
The Times-i'ion'f.arty will re-
main in St. Louis several weeks and
will also distribute "hI special- edi-

It is believed that it will result in?
great good to the state and it is esti-
mated that it will cost the Timss-
Union $12,000.

*The Louisville Courier-Journal of
Aug 13th reproduces the pictures of
Florida's Fair Commissioners and
says:
A bunch of pretty girls from the
land of flowers, the lady commission-
ers of the World's Fair from the state
of Florida, passed through Louisville
last evening en route to St. Louis.
4They came in on the Southern rail-
Sway at 7:10, leaving at 10:15 spend-
ing the intervening time looking over
the city, after taking supper at the
Louisvilie Hotel. The party was in
charge of George W. Wilson, editor
of the Jacksonville Times-Union, and
Mrs. Wilson. These commissioners
-were selected by a voting contest
from the coupons runifing in the
Jacksonville Times-Union, t h i s
method of selection being authorised
by the World's Fair'authorities. The
Times-Union ,is maintaining at the
fair at its own expense an exhibit of
the resources of Florida, and the com-
missioners are going there to inspect
it and add to it.
"Kentucky is simply beautiful,"
said one of them, speaking of the
blue grass region they came through
yesterday. Of course, they are ex-
pecting and will have a big time at
the] fair. They.will remain there
about ten days.
THE SOCIETY EDITOR OF THE BANNER
INTERVIEWED.
Newspaper women form an impor-
tant factor in getting out the daily
papers of Florida, according to infor-
mation of Miss Sara Elizabeth Harris,
of the Ocala Banner, who was in
Louisville last: night. She is society
Clitor of her paper, and says that
' she does not know of a paper in her
state which is not partially written
every day by a woman or women.
While the papers are all small, she
says, the work of the woman is just
as important on the scale of the pub-
lication, and she expects the field of
her sex in daily journalism to grow
with the newspapers.
"I do not expectito see the work


of women extend to all departments
of the paper," Miss Harris continued,
"but I do expect to see her sphere in
"t.the society columns come to' ha 're-
garded with more and more impor-
tance as the years pass."

that is famous all over the country.
On the way to Elmendorf the
young ladies wanted to see the "blue

Kentucky is famous. They were
told that the grass js not always
blue, but could not understand why
green grass should be called "blue"
grass.
Mr. C. H. Berryman, manager of
Elmendorf, and Mrs. Berryman
received the party at their residence,4

After a stroll -over the beautiful

The Scenery Described-Doing the
Fair-The Times Union's Good
Work-Beautiful Greek Worship.
St. Louis, Aug. 14, 1904.


The World's Fair commissioners,
chaperones and friends, arrived in St.
Louis at eight-thirty o'clock Saturday
morning after a thoroughly delightful
trip up from Jacksonville.
An the party on the special Pullman
were the six young lady commission-
ers, Misses Lillian Thomas and Edith
Pye, of Jacksonville, representing the
east coast; Misses Randall, of Madi-
son, and Lulu Bird, of Monticello,
west and middle Florida; Misses
Agnes Rogers, of St. Petersburg and
Sara Harris, of Ocala, west coast;
Mr., and Mrs. George W. Wilson,
Mrs. Sheldon M orris, Mr. and Mrs. B.
F. Dillon land Mr. Herbert Purdy, of
Jacksonville, Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
Fulks and Horace Fulks, of Gaines-
ville, Miss Rebecca Boswell, of Lake-
land and Charles Lloyd, of,Holder.
The route lay through the beauti-
ful Blue Ridge mountain section of
.North Carolina and it is entirely be-
)*"nd my power to begin to describe
the:-grandeur of these mountains.
These grandly beautiful peaks rising
niaje one above the other,
covered dense foliage and trees,
the lovel 11eys and rills beneath,
the mist ris ig from the mountain
tops, is a picture beyond even the con-
ception Qf a poet or an artist.
Just before reaching Asheville we
passed through Biltmore but only a
very small portion of tOW grounds can
be seen from the train. Kenilworth
Inn, at the top of a hill is plainly
visi )le from the train and is quite
pretty.


A stop of about two hours was
made at Asheville, long enough to
enjoy a very excellent dinner.
The route for many miles was par-
rallel with the French Broad and
Swanail-oah rivers and the scenery.
every inch*was beautiful.
Supper was taken at Knoxville and
Friday was spent, as I have already
written, at Lexington, Ky.
Friday night was spent about two
hours in Louisville and had a supper
at the Louisville Hotel.
After arriving in St. Louis yester-
day we wereldomiciled at Pechman's
Hotel and immediately after break-
fast started for the fair.
The fair is gigantic, magnificent
and almost beyond one's conception.
One could remain here for months


i


DOING THE BIG FoIIR.


We were all so tired out yesterday
that not very' much of thefair was,
seen. Only the administration, agri-
cultiural, horticultural and several bf
the smaller buildings were gone'
through.
The Times-Union exhibit in the
horticultural building is very credit-
able under the circumstances, but as
compared to the magnificent exhibit
of California and the other states of
the union, to be candid, does not do
our state proud.
The special edition of the Times-
Union will arrive in a day or two and
will be distributed by the young
ladies. The Times-Union is certain-
ly to be commended for its enter-
prise and is a paper any state may
well be proud of. It is certainly do-
ing everything for the pleasure and
comfort of the young ladies and is
giving them the time of their lives.
The Pike is great. That just ex-
presses it. And before we leave here
we expect to have "done" it from
beginning to end.
This morning we attended services
in the Greek chapel, Jerusalem, in
the World's Fair grounds. This was
the first service that has been held on
the Fair grounds since the opening.
The service was entirely in Greek,
and while none of us knew very
much about what was going on, we
were greatly impressed by every-
thing we saw and heard. The chapel
is an exact representation of one of


thousands of people coming and go-
ing all the time, the beautiful build-
ing, the people of every nation on the
outside of the shows, the confusion
produced by the hundreds of "spiel-
ers" and bands for these concerns, go
to make up one of the most fascinat-
ing scenes on this mundane sphere.
The excitement is intense and every-
body enjoys life on the Pike.


ITS MARVELOUS WONDERS AS SEEN
THROUGH THF EYES OF OUR
LOCAL EDITOR.
Staff Corn espondence Ocala Banner.
St. Louis, Aug. 16, 1904.
The commissioners and their friends
have gotten down to business and
are now seeing the fair in earnest.
The fair in its entirety is the most
marvellous exhibition on earth and
is wonderfully beautiful.
Monday we started the week by
first going through the Varied In-
dustries building and then the Elec-
trical building. The buildings are
almost too vast to conceive of and
one walks mile upon mile in one
building. The different exhibits are
truly wonderful and picturesquely
beautiful and one runs out of syno-
nyms and adjectives in trying to ade-
quately describe them.
At 11:30 o'clock we attended a pipe
organ recital in the Festival Hall, the
musician being Mr. Hamlin Hunt, of
Minneapolis, M inn. He has studied
the organ with Middleschulte and
Grunicke; piano with Deppe and
Jedliczka and theory with Bussler in
Berlin. He plays divinely.
The grand organ used is the Festi-
val Hall is the largest and most
wonderful organ in the world and
was built by the Los Angles Art
Organ Company, California. It is 63
feet long. 30 feet deep, and 50 feet
high. Has 140 speaking stops, 90
mechanical movements, 10059 pipes.
The combination switch board has
1616 electric switches, capable of pro-
ducing 17,178,867,183 distinct tonal
combinations.
In the afternoon we "did" the Art
Gallery, the Horticultural and the
Machinery buildings and at five
o'clock rested long enough to listen
to the concert given by the Mexican
Band, of which Capt. Ricardo Pache-
co is the leader. The music was
lovely.
The evening until eleven o'clock we
spent on the "Pike." The brilliant
illuminations, the thousands upon


The Japanese music was excruciating
to us, but I presume that it was very
fine for Japanese. Only one admis-
sion is charged for everything in
Fair Japan and it is certainly well
worth the price.
We then shot the chutes and rode
on the scenic railway several times.
If asked what is the most popular
thing on the Pike to the Florida
crowd, I believe we would say the
Scenic, as we are all crazy about it
and wind up every night with several
rides.

. We first took in "Unfd 6U -an-dOv7'
the Sea" and the "Hiereafter." Both
ere extremely good illusions and in
the latter place one held one's breath
for fear of "spooks."
"Fair Japan" we next visited. It
is by far to me the most interesting
concession on the Pike and for that
matter on the grounds.
The tea gardens presided over by
pretty -Japanese girls, the many
booths, where all sorts of Japanese
ware, hand embroidery, drawn x;ork
and beautiful articles of every des-
cription alre on sale are a very
pleasing sight and make one long to
be a millionaire to buy every thing
in sight. Every thing in Fair Japan
is in charge of Japanese and a small
Japanese city is exactly reproduced.
It is truly fairyland. Be sure not to
miss visiting this concession, everyone
that comes to the fair. After looking
around at all the beautiful things,
visiting the tea gardens, drinking tea
and eating Japanese rice cakes, we
were conducted into the Japanese
theatre, which is quite a pretty one.
The first number :was called the
"Dance of Cities" by eight Japanese-
girls. Next was the "Sword Dance,"
by two'Japanese women. We would
never call it a dance, it being more
in the nature of a duel-but the
movements of the women was grace
itself.
Ten girls then danced the national
dance of Japan, the flag dance. It
was very pretty and graceful. Usual-
ly only Japanese flags are used in
this dance, but owing to the feeling
of the United States toward Japan
in her present war, as a compliment
to us both Japanese flags and our
own beautiful "stars and stripes" are
used.
After these dances a short inter-
mission was given and then a two act-
Japanese play, "The Spirit of the
Spider," It was a very pretty and
we all enjoyed it. Only one man
took part in the play and the orches-
tra was also composed of women.


the Greek churches in Jerusalem and,
is very pretty.

l After the services we were invited
into what is kuown as the "Cruci-
fiction." This is a very beautiful
painting done in Munich. The en-
tire city, the Moi"i of .Olives, Geth-
semane, the home of Joseph of
Aremathea and many scenes in the
life of the Saviour, are here vry viv-
idly portrayed. The final seen is the
crucifiction of the Saviour. A real
Greek showed us the pictures and
lectured most interestingly about"
them.
This afternoon several of the party
witnessed the ball game at the Amer-
ican League park. New York and
St. Louis played and New York won
in a beautiful game, the score being
2 to 1.
Others of the party visited the
parks and gardens and tonight quite
a number of us are going out to some
of the gardens.

LAST DOYS AT ST LQIS.m


The Lady Comnissioners Had a Very
Delightful Outing-Thq air is
Fascinating.-
St. Louis, Aug. 19, 1904.
Staff Correspondence Ocala Banner.
The Times-Union commissioners are
continuing to have a great time at
this marvelously wonderful exposi-
sition. Today the elements are treat-
ing us rather shabbily and there is
little chance of a visit to the fai,
grou-ds before this afternoon, so
different members of the party ex-
pect to go down into the city in-
stead.
Since m1 last letter, our party has
gone through and spent several hours
in all of the larger buildings, such As
the Transportation,. Governmerft,
Palace of Liberal Arts, Manufactures,
.Ash,. Game and Foresty, the Com-
mission of Fisheries, the United
States mammoth bird cage, in
-which are beautiful specimens of all
sorts of birds and fowls-there is
even a Florida buzzard-Mines and
Metallurgy, and Education.
We have also visited quite a num-
.ber of the state buildings and the
various foreign exhibits. Words are


the ladies of our party, wa edfern's
display of Parision gowns. They are
the most exquisite creations that the
Lmind can conceive and make one
ish to be a Morgan or a Vanderbilt
so that one could own a few of them.:
The Philippine exhibit is very In*
[teresting and the Boer war is very.
realistic and exciting.
We have "done" the Pike from one
end to the'other, exclusive of a few.
unimportant side shows, and the'
fascination it has for every lady keeps,
up. -
We have heard a number of good
band concerts and in every way our
week at the exposition has heen
most delightful. The assistant com-
missioners, Miss Pye, Miss Bird and
Miss Harris start for their homes

BOARD TRAIN, Aug& 22, '.0.
9ur last two nights at the fair were
greatly marred by rain but the days
were very pleasant.
On Friday night about half past 7
o'clock one of the most terrific storms
I have ever witnessed broke over thd
fair. We were sitting on the floor of
the Electricity building, just opposite
the beautiful Festival hall, the Cas-
cades, Gardens and Grand Basin. The
storm was awful in its magnificence.
People were huddled together in
goups like sheep and many were
terribly frightened.
Almost without warning the storm
broke, the rain descended in great
sheets, the lightning was something
terrifying and the thunder rolled in-
cessantly. The play of the lightning
around the Cascade, etc., was a sight
that only an artist could portray and
a poet fitly describe. Its vividness
and grandeuri411 long remain ip our
memories.
In the Festival hall, w e there
was to have been a band the
building was shaken, wi; panes.
crashed to the floor, and a panic was.
imminent when Hon. George W. Wil-
son arose and requested the audience
to remain quiet and there -would be
no danger. Some. one on the other
side of the hall followed Mr. Wilson's
example and soon quiet was restored
but of .coUrse there was no concert
that night.
The water, nn the Pike, in a.very
few minutes, owing to the inability
of the guards to find the drain pipe,
attained the depth of about four feet
and a boat was rowed straight down
the Pike without any difficulty. This
discomfort, however, was only for a

not help. recalling Longfellow's
lines:
"How beautiful is the rain
After the dust and heat
In the broad and narrow street!
In the narrow lane.

Friday morning instead of going
out to the fair a party of us went into
town to see something of the city.
After -visiting some of the stores we
went out to the city insane asylum,
passing several beautiful parks on the
way. There are about nine hundred..
patients in the asylum and it is quite
pitiful. However, these unfortunates
are excellently cared for. The grounds
surrounding the immense buildings.
are very extensive and beautiful and'
the patients roam through them atl
will. Of course there are quite a
number of more dangerous patients,
who are kept securely guarded.
This visit was quite an interesting
one for us.

The St. Loisexositin is beyond
% all odds the greatest ex6ition ever
held. The main buildings composing
the exposition are o- th-baelves worth
going to see to say ziothing of the-
exhibits which they contain which
are not only vast and varied but are
f ^^ marvelously beautiful and attractive
From an artist's standpoint.
The twelve main buildings a-e of
different type and .style. of architec-
ture and are beautifully symmetrical
and harmonious.
On the authority of the most capable
judges in the world it is said that
the great palace of Mines and Metal-
lurgy, which occupies and extremely
important position in the general plan
and adjoins the palace of Liberal Arts
and the United States government
building, is the most magnificent,
most original andtsublime piece of
architecture which was ever created
for exposition purposes.
Besides the main buildings forty-
four different states and territories
have separate buildings on the,
grounds, classed under the head of
the "Plateau of States." Thes`
buildings begin near the "Inside Inn'"
and extend as far down as the Festi-
val hall, Fine- arts and Mines and Me-
tallurgy palaces.
There is a tract of forty-seven acres
within the'exposition grounds devoted
entirely to exhibits of men and mate-
riat from the Philippine islands. This
wonderful display Would constitute a
magnificMx position if set apart by
itilf and entirely independent. It
contains a vast number of exhibit
buildings, many being Philippine style I
and materials, which contain exam-n
ples of all the products of the Philip-
pines-arms, implements, households
Utensils, -and everything pertaining
Ito the life of that primitive people.


In the department of education there
* is represented enough of Philippine-
civilization to convince any thinking

further beautified by the lagoon which
extends for over two miles through
the main exposition and eulminatesxit
the Grand Basin and Cascades. Be
sides this there are graceful trees ai"d

-On two strips of ground on the hill-
side leading'to to the Palace of Agri-

ownership, the second American
ownership.
The story is made more complete

hat exposition excelled all previous
efforts in the beauty and styl f its
buildings and in the extent an;ag-
iAtude of its exhibits, that the, St.
Louis or Louisiana Purchase Exposi-
:tion, held eleven years later, cannot
contain or exhibit enough that- is new
.or different to interest them espec-
ially or compensate them for the time
and expense of visiting it. It is a
great mistake. Those who visited the
.Chicago exposition had then before
them an exhibit of the world's ad-
fvancement during the previous cen-
juries. Those who saw that exhibit
'and visit the St. Lauis exposition will
not only see the advancement of the
world during the past nineteen centu-
ries, but they will,also by contrasting
the exhibits here with those of Chic-
ago see in what part of the world the
greatest advancement has been made,
especially the progress made in all
lines of industry, art, science and ed-
ucation during the past eleven years.
j "In the Transpdrtation building at
St. Lotdis the principal exhibit is the
automobile exhibit, something not
thought of eleven years ago. Another
one in the transportation building
which illustrates the marvelous pro-
gress of eleven years is to be found in
the Pennsylvania railroad and Balti-
more and Ohio railroad exhibit. In
the first there is a locomotive engine
resting on the track of the railroad,
and equipped with a machine that
tests the pulling power and speed of
the engine, and at the same time es-
timates the amount of coal consumed
per mile to each ton of load, the
amount of water consumed and analy-
ses the gases passing out of the smoke
stack; and all this information is ob-
tained at the same time and by the
same Jests. It is indeed marvelous
stand by and see a locomotive engine
with the engineer in his cab, his hand
on the title, the engine under full;
head of seam, the fireman shovelin

in the coal, the engii6e inning at th'
rate of sixty miles an hour and not


moving forward an inch.
"It is equally interesting to see one,
of these marvelous locomotive en-
gines resting on a turntable, in active
operation, and by virtue of its own
power revolving itself in a circle while
at the same time apparently moving
forward. "


ST. LOUIS, 'Sept. 10.-It has been said
that the World's Fair ought to erect a
mnonument to the Igorrotes, a "naked"
shaft with the iroage of a dead dog on
the top, because the peculiarities of this
one group of Philippine natives have done
more than any other agency or feature
toward advertising the greatest of all inter-
national expositions.
There are, strange as it may seem, many
.really enlightened citizens of this republic
who have failed to learn that in the Palace
of Fine arts there is to be seen the most
comprehensive, the most beautiful, the most
valuable collection of paintings and other
works of art that -has ever been gathered
together in America. There are people who
have not heard, or having heard have not
understood, that within the confines of the
Louisiana Purchase Exposition they may
s'ee the highest product of science, the
most wonderful electrical display, the fin-
est landscape decorations, the strangest
peoples of the earth. There are those who
do not know that the Grand Trainon, the
Schloss Charlottenburg, the country palace
of Prince Pu Lun, tire tomb of Etmad-
Dowlah, the Cabildo, the birthplace of
Daniel Webster, the old Vermont Consti-
tution House, the Sigourney mansion of
Hartford, historic Monticello, the beautiful
Casa Rosa of Argentine, and the new tem-
ple of Ben Chama at Bangkok, India, have
all been brought together so that he who
would take the little journey through the
Plateau of the States and the foreign sec-
tion, can see historic buildings, in exact
reproduction, that he could scarcely see in
the original, in a year's constant travel.
There are yet other people who have not
learned that the very desk on which the
Louisiana treaty was signed is at the
World's Fair, and that in the German and
French pavilions there are six of the most
.valuable Gobelin tapestries in the world.
These and many other things there are
.that some people do not .l w, about the
marvelous World's Fair; 'but everybody-
knows about the Igorrotes!
Before the public had been invited to visit
the four villages of Philippine natives, some
busy newspaper reporter discovered and
'heralded''o the world the fact that the
Igorrotes are in the habit of sacrificing
dogs to the deity of the sun, and then
making the roasted flesh of the sacrifice
their piece, de resistance at breakfast. In a
moment the society with the long name
was-up in arms. It is the purpose of this
society4ib see that no animal shall have
a painless death. "Better a city and a
country of starving, abused, outcast dogs
.%tt a few be murdered instantly and
with 'railee prepense, and served first on
*he a tar and then on the breakfast table
of savagess" say they.
With much difficulty the Governor of the
vilinge, .Dr. T. K. Hunt, also Lieutenant-
overnor of the tribe at home, quieted the
'laQls and. insured the perpetuation of the
*1fb.tplicturesque and humane of all the
savage feasts. 'No sooner wa.s this matter
settled than another, a more serious one,
Sarose. Some other ladies, who had doubt-
lets .never studied either art or ethics, com-
phltied to the United States Government
-.hat their sensibilities were shocked by the
sit1jit of naked Igorrotes. They were not
sufficiently shocked to abstain from enter-
Ig the inclosure where the gentlemen
dressed in gee-strings are kept., It did not
occur'to them that they might have spared
their feelings by looking in the opposite
direction. No, they wanted to see Igorrotes;
.bit they wanted to see them dressed up
tke negro waiters. So vigorously was this.
complaint pushed that an order came from
headquarters that the comfortable four-in
ind must be exchanged for a pair of
tousers. This was bad for the Igorrotes;
Ipt it was good for the. World's Fair.
People who'had never heard of a World's
Fair read about the new breecAes that Un-
cle Sam was making for the naked savages.
They were beauties, too, of the most bril-


liant green and yellow and red silk; butt
when the tempest In a teacup finally at-m
traced the attention of President Roose-c
velt, he, being an eminently sane and ra-
tional man declare that if we were to
have Igorrotes at m the World's Fair, we


The Thankful Heart.
If one should give me a dish of sand
and tell me there were particles of iron
in it I might look for them with my
eyes and search for them with my
clumsy fingers and be unable to detect
them, but let me take a magnet and
sweep through it, and how it would
draw to itself the most invisible parti-
cles by the mere power of attraction!
The unthankful heart, like my finger in
the sand, discovers no mercies, but let
the thankful heart sweep through the
day as the magnet finds the iron, so it
will find in every hour some heavenly
blessings, only the iron in God's sand

should have real Igorrotes and not dreb
up negro waiters, not even ex-IgorrotesiT.
abbrevated silk trunks. So Dr. Hunt put af
the little rainbow breeches away, and ther&l
was peace in the village once more. Again
the peace was of short duration. The om-
niscient dignitary in Washilgton declared
that they are not Igorrotes, but.Igorot, that
there may be One Jgorot or ten Igorot, and
to quote from the Philippine handbook,
"the man who would spell it any other
way than I-g-o-r-o-t, or who would plural-
ize it is guilty of a literal barbarism."
This is the same all-wise official who says,
"Hitherto that unimportant tributary 6f
the Ohio has been the Black river. We now
ordain that henceforth it shall be the
Blaycke river." 0
The old spelling, Igorrote, with a logical
plural, has been in use for four hundred
years. If you shoulcP summon any member
of the tribe and ask him his nationality;
he would say, "Igor-r-r-rotay" with a rotl
to fhe third syllable that would delight a
Frenchman. There may be a good deal of,
"rot" in some corners 'of the new American
possessions, but there certainly is none In
the name of these new Americans.
It is not probable that this name con-
troversy will be settled as easily as were
the other two. Yet during the scrimmage
the people will flock to the World's Fair
to see these strange men and women Who
have been able, in a few months, to ad-'
vertise themselves so widely. Incidentally
they will see some of the thousands of;
other things that go to make up this glo-
rious exposition. And if they inquire, they
will also learn something about the Igor-
rotes besides the bare facts that they are
fond of conventional dress, that they eat
dog and that they prefer the time-hon-
ored and rational spelling of their name to
the new and trumped-up one. The visitor
will see, first o.f all, that the Igorrote is
endowed with a vkin so beautiful that it
would be a crime to hide it. He is a living
bronze, No rational man, no cultivated
woman would ask to have the Hermes in
the Naples gallery dressed up in trousers
and a clawhammer, nor even in silk trunks.
The Igorrote wears all the clothing that
decency requires, and if he were the one to
ask for more, the World's Fair visitors
would soon petition the President to have
those lithe, perfectly developed bodies and
that beautiful skin again on display.
More than this, the visitor would learn
that the Igorrote is more honest and hon-
orable than the American. Knowing the
value of money, he would not be tempted
for one single instant to take that which
did not belong to him, even if he were sure
that his theft would never be found out.
The property of another is absolutely safe
In his possession. In conflict he fights fair.
He delights in the consciousness that he
has taken the head of his enemy; but no
head was ever taken by stealth, by treach-
ery or any but open and even contest.
The Igorrotes are not beggars like almost
all the other primitive peoples to be seen at
the World's Fair. This is doubtless because;
they know that Dr. Hunt will put them in
prison if they are caught asking for money
When coins are offered to them they ask
the Governor's permission before they accept
even the most trivial sum. The boys have
learned that American pennies will buy
candy and rice cakes, and the boys are
exceedingly fond of both candy and rice
cakes; but no pennies are accepted without
permission from the White Man, their mas-
ter and friend. In many respects the most
interesting figure in the village is this
White Man, Dr. 'Hunt, who forsook civili-
zation because he was disgusted with the
shame and the pretense of the social world,
and went to live among the simple, honor-
able, natural Igorrotes. What his influence
during the past eight years has been can
readily be judged from the devotion of


every man and woman of the tribe. In the
midst of head-hunting savages, his will is
supreme, his word is law, and he rules not
by might, for Chief Antonio could take his
head if he cared to, but by a direct appeal
to the best that is in them. The Igorrotes
have learned that he is their friend, as
just and honorable as they are. And the
highest Bsition in America would not be
sufficient inducement to persuade Dr. Hunt
to forsake his Igorrotes and remain in the
land of his birth. He is going back to" t.
Philippines after the World's Eair is oveW
and expects to spend his life ahnongst the
Igorrote people whom he lov1 .^

iig the ribbons were white and pink
roses. Seated at the table were the

There has long been a tradition
hat, in the vicinity of St. Augus-
tine there, exists the spring for
which Potice de Leon sought, by
the quaffing- whose waters youth
was renewed and life prolonged in
definitely. While Ponce d eteli
himself failed to locate the wonder-
ful fountain, the search for it has
never been given up, and there is
convincing evidence that it has
been found, althoAh the fortunate
discoverer is keeping the matter to
_himself. ".- -
During the past year a gentle-
man whose name has been for the
past half century a household word
in Florida, has been paying occa-
sional visits to St. Augustine.
Every little while he left the sanc-
tum in Marion county over which
helias so long presided, and ap-
peared in this cityv.$No one could
tell the,object his visits and he kept
the matter to himself. Finally* his
repeated visits became an object of
interest to the State press and it be-
gan to comment.editorially upon it.
The fact that 6'Nstor of the
State press fountthqespite the
perennial youthfulhs sof-his spirit,
his body was grol .eg old. He
then began hi.resear bes for the
famous spring and the evidence is
accufflulating thait-he has found it.
One of the earliest evidences was
the appearance of the Banner as a
sprightly daily. Then came his
editorials full of the kittenish spirit
of .youth. But the culminating
proot of the tact that this formerly
aged gentleman 'is young 'again is
the following modest announce-.
ient in his oV'n publicationn.
A little sotwvas born* to Mr. and

th University of Florida. He ai "v-
ed here Satuv-day afternoon and re-,
mained until this mornir-. -.
Sunday mining Dr. Sledd preach-
ed at the Methodist church to a, very
attentive cong egation. He selected
for his text several passages in the
Epistle of James, having for his
main theme "Neglect," showing
that this is one of the most common
as well as the most fatal sins in the
Chistian's life. Wphe consequence of
neglect," he sai,, -"is decadence,
decay and death." He said that "he
that wavereth in his faith is "ke a
wave of the sea, driven with the
wind and tossed."
In beautiful language he followed
up the career of the "unstable man"
and showed how impossible it is for
him to succeed along any path of life.
He also marked the unsuccessful
career of the "double-minded man,"
who is'unstable in his ways and for
"the space of thirty minutes preached
an intenisely interesting, practical
and spiritual sermon.
On Sunday night Dr. Sledd preach-
ed in the Baptist church to a very
large congregation, every seat was oc-
cupied and for nearly an hour he
preached as eloquent and able a
sermon as perhaps was ever listened
to in this city. He used as his text
the eleventh verse of the eleventh
chapter of Matthew: "Vei ly, I say
unto you, among them that are bo...
of women, there hath not risen a
greater than John, the Baptist."I
Dr. Sledd was exceec'nuly chaste,
and fluent in his choice of words and
his description of the rugged virtues
of this heroic character could -not
have been more eloquent nor sublime
and everyone was charmed with his
subject, his diction and his manner
of delivery.
On Monday moving 3r. Sledd
visited the Ocala mub"'c school and
made a short but impressive ta"'" to
the pupils of the hic'i school depa. -
ment.
In the Presby be. an church Mon-


day night Dr. Sledd. Oe"vered a vey
-' interesting lectr 'e on "'-e subject of
education.
Owing to the stormy condition of
'the weather the church was not
crowded, but we believe it would
have been had the weather been less
threatening.
Appropriate h -nns were sung and
Dr. H. W. Little, who preached the
baccalaureate sei non at the Univer-
sity of Florida last Ji-'ie and be-
came somewhat acquainted v .-th its
conditions, made some vely enthu-
siastic, happy and felicitious remarks
concerning it.
Dr. Sledd said that education was
a large subject and covered a multi-
tude of phases and it ,vas impossible

able to preserv-e ani vividly eoin
pared the ignorant citizenship of~
Greece and Rome, and in later times
of France, to the educated citizen-
ship of our own times and of our own
comtfcy.
In drawing the compa..son and cit-
ing illustrations, Dr. Sledd indulged .
in many eloquent passages.
He paid a splendid enco.ium on the
people of Fiotida in 'he establishment
of such a splenc'd system of common
schools and in their efforts towards
the establishment of higher educa-
tional institutions.
He said that Florida paid more per
capital for education than any south-
ern state and her people had taken
hold of education in the right spirit
and was carrying it forward in a
manner that commanded the highest
co mmendation.
He said that he believed there
should be a correlation of the state's
educational forces and that the
branches should converge to a com-
mon center-that instead of %weaken-
ing the system by diffusing the funds
raised by taxation for educational
purposes he believed that it would beI
strengthened by concentrating its
funds and its effo
He told of I s hopes and aspirations
as president of the University of
Florida and that h. drean L .
ind drew visions which were beauti-
ful and idealistic.
He said that the University' had in
view "body, mind and mQrals," and
that it wanted to make of the boy
graduating from it a complete and
finished man from head to foot. and
through and through.
He said the motto the institution
had adopted is the following: "Sound
morals the basis of good citizenship,"
and it would be his high purpose to
make the institution live up to the
motto.
Dr. Little applauded Dr. Sledd's
lecture and expressed the gratitude
and the pleasure of the people of
Ocala in having him amongst us and


said that Ocala not only sent him
messages of good will but what was,
better had sent him boys and that
we were proud of the fact that or'-
contribution was second only to the.
home county.
After Dr. Little's remarks the
hymn, "Our Cor-itry 'Tis of Thee,,"
was sung and the meeting closed.
During his stay here Maj.. T. C.
Hall gave Dr. Sledd an 'automob'e
ride over the city and also a di.:ve to
Silver Springs and it is almost need-
less to say that or-' cdsting ished ,s-
itor was not only charmed with the
beauties of the latter but was also
well pleased with Orala and its sur-
roundings.

season a brilliant one.
One cannot count the numb f
affairs but there are rumors of events
that will have for their background
-the lovely homes of Ocala.
Affairs ouch as these are the ones
which indicate not only at home, but
abroad, that we possess a group of
persons who can and will entertain
with the hospitality which rightfully
belongs to Florida.
Mrs. William Hocker's elegant
Hallowe'en reception tomorrow after-
noon complimentary to Mrs. Edward
Cristy Welsh marks the closing event
of October and is practically the open-
.ing of the social season.
Quite a number of 'events will take
place during November and through-
out the -r.st of the winter months.
The 'coming week will be quite
filled with entertaining tho confed-
erate veterans, the sponsors and
their maids-of-honor.

ALLOE'E R EPTION?"

Mrs. W'llia ocker Entertains
Elaborately Monday Afternoon.
Mirs. William Hocker entertained
delightfully at her home on Ockla-
waha avenue Monday afternoon in
compliment to Mrs. Edward Cristy
Welsh, of Cornell.
The brilliantly tinted foliage of
autumn with many deep rich red and
yellow blossoms made the beautiful
rooms most attractive. The house
was darkened and the dim lights
radiating from the many jack o'
lanters throughout the house lent a
wierdedness to the scene that was
novel. The color motif of red, yel-
low and green was charmingly car-.
ried out in all of the elaborate ap-
pointments of this brilliant reception.
On a table just to the right of the
front door as one entered was a most
grotesque jack o' lantern presiding
over the card tray and keeping a
lookout over all the guests as they
arrived.
In the front hall Mrs. Robert L.
Anderson, Mrs. Robert A. Burford,
Mrs. D. E. Mclver and Mrs. A. B.
Efird, of Leesburg, were receiving.
In the back hall punch was served
by three witches, whose' costumes
werVcomplete in every detail. Their
disguise was perfect but before the
afternoon was over the secret, was
out and they were discovered to be
Misses Byrd Wartmann, Edith Piatt
and Esther Weathers. Their corner
was the most picturesque in the
house. Suspended from three poles
was a large kettle with a lighted
lantern under it. This corner was,
separated from the rest of the room
by a white screen very much decorat-
ed with witches' blade *cats, ;ind
other spoit looking animals and ie
decorati"l !'ioinsisted -. hoc"

. The hostess, wh6se gracious per
sonality and culture are one of the
strong factors of Ocala society, was
standing hear the bay window. She
was most attractive in a black lace
evening gown. With her was the
special guest, Mrs. Welsh, who is one
of our recent brides and who has al-
ready won for herself many friends
by her sweet and charming manners.
She wore her wedding gown of white
silk and looked particularly pretty.
After greeting the hostess and hon-
oree the guests were asked into the
dining room by "rs. E. H. Mote, of
Jacksonville, and Mrs. E. L. Carney.
A jack o' lantern pumpkin occupi-
ed the center of the table and sur-
rounding it were many lovely yello!
and red blossoms. Suspended fro
the chandelier was another jack
lantern and quite a number of the
were also seen on the mantel, sid.
board and buffet. The salad and ice
courses were served by ghosts, who
were also disguised. Two ghosts,
Mrs. Herbert Anderson and Mrs. D.
W. Davis, were seated at the table
and poured the chocolate and coffee.
The other guests serving were Mrs.
T. B. Snyder, Mrs. S. P. Eagleton,
Mrs. N. M. Allred, Mrs. J. C. B.
Koonce and Mrs. C. V. Miller.
On leaving the dining room eact
guest was presented a walnut tied
with yellow and red ribbons and
when opened were found to contain
the possessor's fortune.
Nearly two hundred guests were-
present. The. young ladies were ask-
ed for the last hour and a number of
the young men and the husbands of
the ladies assisting Mrs. Hocker were
asked to meet them. During thip
hour the witches executed a most apl
propriate and fantastic dance. Mrs.
Hocker's reception was a very bea'
tiful event.
Mr. Leon Fishel furnished music a
during the receiving hours.

VETERANS UNIONN.

Beautiful Weather and a Large Num-

With the exception of being a little
windy early in the day the weather
Tuesday was delightful and the at-
tendance at the reunion of the Con-
federate Veterans was larger than
was anticipated.
The picket guard began to arrive

lantine, en-Senator Pasco and quite
a number of others, who take a prom-
inentpart in the reunion, arrived, and,
at the hour of assembling in Yonge's


hall Tuesday afternoon, every seat
was occupied.
The hall was beautifully decorated
with Confederate flags, red and white
bunting, pot plants and flowers,
which was the skillful work of the
Daughters of the Confeieracy of this
city.
At the hour of 3:30 the reunion
was called to order by Adjutant Gen-
eral Fred L. Robertson, of Tallahas-

After the convention was called to
order by General Ballentine, Miss
Sara Whitfield sang sweetly, "The
Suwanee River," all those present
joining in the chorus.
Then in a spirited and splendid
manner, Hon. H. A. Ford, a member
of the city council, in the absence of
Mayor Edwards, extended the veter-
ans a cordial welcome to Ocala.
Ex-United States Senator Samuel
Pasco responded to the address of
welcome in a well considered and
magnificent oration.
Maj. L. T. Izlar, in a superbly elo-
quent address, welcomed the veter-
ans on behalf of the local camp.
Hon. Francis P. Fleming responded
ao this address, and his oration was
s siFiant as a string pof glittering


After singing "Praise God from
whom all blessings flow," and a beau-
tiful benediction offered by Rev. Mr.
Norris the convention adjou.ied sine
die.
From 8 to 10 o'clock a reception

was given in Yonge's hall to the vet-
prans and visitors by the Daughters
of the Confederacy. A large number
were present and the event was very
pleasant. Fruit punch was served by
different ladies during the evening. -
From 9:30 to 12 o'clock a dance
was given at the armory in compli-
ment to the sponsors and maids-of-
honor. Mr. Leon Fishel furnish-d
the music and the young people grc:
ly enjoyed the evening.


Then in a most spirited, feeling and
magnetic manner General Law in-
troduced the orator of the evening,
Gen. George P. Harrison, Commander
of the Alabama Division, U. C. V.,
as the "hero of Olustee."
General Law in his introduction
said no braver soldier ever drew a
sword, and his his superb qualities as
an orator almost equalled his repfita-
tion as a soldier, and the enthusiasm
he aroused and the applause he re-
ceived fully sustained the eulogy
General Law gave him. He was
pleasing and fascinating.
All the speeches, indeed, abounded
in eloquence, reminiscence, wit,
anecdote and pathos, and would have
-done credit to any assemblage on
earth, and we are sorry the lateness
of the hour and the shortness of help

Mr. Charles E. Moore complimented
the young society crowd with a dance
at the armory last night.
The musio was furnished by Mr.
Leon Fishel. The dance was little
out of the ordinary, being a "break'
dance, which is not often danced
in Ocala. It was novel and most
delightful.
Mr. Moore, who is from Louisville,
Ky., is a recent addition to Ocala's
social set. He is a very pleasant
young gentleman and the young
folks are indebted to him for an ex-
tremely pleasant evening.
The following young gentlemen and
ladies attended this very delightful
dance: Misses Johnnie Liddon,

Ocala Loses One of Her east Lovedi
and Most Popular Women.
Mrs. Dan Morgan Smith died very
suddenly at her homejin this city on
South Second street Tuesday morning
about eight-thirty o'clock. Her death
was a great shock to her family and
to her friends throughout the city.
On Monday night Mrs. Smith was
feeling badly but got up to breakfast
Tuesday morning. At the table she
complained of feeling sick and got
up to go to her room. Dr. Smith,
who had started out hunting, and
Dr. Van Hood were sent for but Mrs.
Smith died a few minutes after they
reached her side, the cause of her
death beinl 'eart failure.
There was no woman in Ocala more
popular nor more general loved
than was Mrs. Smith and she will be
sadly missed by her family and
friends. She leaves to mourn her
death her husband, Dr. Smith, one
of Ocala's most prominent physi-
cians, and three children, Mr. Dan
Morgan Smith, jr., of Chicago, Miss
Georgia Smith and Morris Smith, of
Ocala, who have the sympathy of
the community in their great sorrow.
Mrs. Smith was fifty-six years of
age and was born at the family's old
colonial home, "Montebello," Orange,
Virginia. Her maiden name was
Miss DeLacey u.ave. She was mar-
ried to Dr. Smith in 1872 and they
moved to Ocala from Jasper a little
over twelve years ago. Five child-
ren blessed their union, two of whom,
Jack and "Dada," died in this city
several years ago.
Mrs. Smith was a devoted member
of Grace Ebiscopal church and was
very active in all church work. She
was also an active and honored
member of the Daughters of the
Confederacy and no member was
ever more loyal to the cause. They
will honor her memory by attend-
ing the funeral in a body.
The Ocala Banner joins with the
many friends of the family in ex-
tending to the family its heartfelt


Miss Cook who is from Barnesville,
Ga., having made her home for several
years past with her sister, Mrs. C. D.
Massey, in New York, who is now
residing at East Orange, New Jersey.
When Mr. and Mrs. Massey lived in
Ocala, Misses Cook spent several
winters with them and was one of
our most attractive and popular
visitors. As Mrs. Tigner she will be
a charming addition to Atlanta's
social and also musical circles as she
possesses an unusually sweet voice.
The announcement of this marriage
will be of much interest to the many
friends of the bride in this city.


AT REST.


The funeral of Mrs. ])an Morgan
Smith, which took place from her
late residence at 3:30 o'clock yester-
day afternoon, was the most impos-
ing ever seen in this city and was a
demonstration of the high esteem in
which, the deceased was held.
The casket was literally buried be-
neath the wealth of floral offerings.
Mrs. Smith was an active member
of the United Daughters of the Con-
federacy and as a mark of esteem
the chapter attended the funeral in
a body and each member deposited
in the grave a tiny Confederate flag
as a tribute to her loyalty and devo-
tion to this cause.
A remnant of Confederate Veterans
also attended in a body and stood
with uncovered heads as the casket
was conveyed from the residence to
the hearse.
The pall-bearers were Messrs. Louis
R. Chazel, David S. Williams, George
K. Robinson, Edward Holder, Edward
Drake, Edward Hiller and Donald
Ford.
The funeral obsequeis were impres-
sively conduct I by Rev.H. W. Little,
using the beautiful ritual of the
Episcopal church.

A Delightful OutdooE.riEt
One of the most novel fe


'ure.s of


the Christmas festivities in Ocala
was the "chicken pllau" given by
Col. Felder Lang Monday night in
the beautiful oak grove, in front of.
his lovely suburban residence.
At least an hundred persons were
present to enjoy this novel feast.
They were met at the. gate by Col.
and Mrs. Lang and their daughters,
Mrs. Glass Meiggs and Miis Kate
Lang and were given a very hearty
welcome.
It was Col. Lang's intention to
hlve given an oyster roast but the
weather being warm he changed his
plans and instead of the roast gave a
pillau.
The night itself was lovely and the
grounds were beautifully illuminated
with many Japananese lanterns and
great bon fires made with turpentine
chips. -
Mr. George Martin acted as chef
and so admirably did he succeed
that he made for himself a last-
ing reputation. About nine o'clock
the feast was ready and was spread
on a large table especially prepared
for thip occasion and with the pillau
was served bread and butter, pickles,
crackers and hot coffee and tea and
when it is stated that the appetites
of some were so keen that as many as
four plates of pillau were called for,
it will readily be seen how greatly
this outdoor feast was enjoyed.
Both before and after the supper a
display of fire works lent a dazzling
beauty to the scene and at ten
o'clock the guests all departed after
having spent an extremely pleasant
evening and with many expressions
of praise of the cordial hospitality of
Col. and Mrs. Landg.
This uniqe and delightful affair
was given in honor of Miss Mary
Drake, a popular visitor rom
Auburn, Alabama, the guest of 1r.
and Mrs. Robt. G. Blake.

man Club gave the first of a number
of very pretty affairs planned for the
winter season and it proved to be
quite as delightful ,as it promised.
It was given at the Ocala Rifles'
Armory, which was very prettily
decorated with bamboo, palms and
moss. Quite a number of Japanese
lanterns gave an additional prettiness
to the ball. room.

Mr. Volini, of Jacksonville, violin
and Mr Lytle, of Jacksonville, cor-1
net, were stationed at one end of the,

ler and Mrs. McKean, led the ger-
man, which was an unusually pretty
one. There were nearly thirty
couples present who greatly enjoyed
witnessing the cotillion.
Some very pretty figures, among
them being quite a number of new
ones, were danced. The opening
figure was a masked one. The young
ladies first entered the room and
executed a figure, after which the
gentleman entered. Partners were
chosen and the grand march then
took place The room was darkened
and the marchers carried lighted
Japanese lanterns. This figure was"
exceedingly lovely.
Therewere several other masked
figures, a confetti figure and a num-
ber of marching and favor figures,
all of which were very bright and
catchy.
Misses Sallie Camp and Alice But-
lock presided at the favor table and
at the punch table, which was in one
corner of the room amidst a bower
of palms and bamboo, Mr. and Mr'.
F. L. Watson presided.

the growing of oranges and at the
time of his death still owned a large
grove and a fine residence there. He
remained there for three winters and
then returned to Philadelphia and
resumed his practice. He was one of,
that city's leading physicians for
over 40 years. In 1901 Dr. Eagleton-
retired from the practice of medicine
and moved to Ocala and has lived
here ever.since. He was a member'
of the Presbyterian church and was a

E Brilliant Weddiig at the Baptist Churcl Wedgesday
Morning at 10:30 O'clockl.


A wedding of charming arrange-
ments was that of Miss Lucy Camp,
of this city, and Mr. George Fergu-
son Armstrong, of Savannah, at the
First Baptist church Wednesday
morning at ten-thirty o'clock*
The' church was beautifully and
simply decorated, no colors being
used save green and white. The
principal decorations were four large
white pillars trimmed with feathery
smilax against a background of tall
palms and ferns. Suspended from.
the wall just between the four pillars
was the wedding bell of maidenhair
ferns and smilax, tied with a large
bow of white satin ribbon.
About one hundred invited friends
were present to witness the brilliant
nuptials. To say all the nice things
that could with truth and justice be
said would, indeed, exceed our limits.
The attractions of both bride and
groom, the prominence of the fami-
lies and the taste and trouble ex-
pended in-the wedding preparations,
made it a long to be remembered
event.
Before the ceremony Mr. Leon
Fishel played a beautiful prelude in
G Minor and exactly at ten-thirty
o'clock to the strains of the Lohen-
grin wedding march the bridal party
entered the church, the ushers enter-
'ing first and singly up the right aisle
followed by the bridesmaids, who
came up the left aisle.
The bride in her exquisite wedding
gowfn of Duchesse satin with finish-'
ings of real lace, with her beauty
softened by the folds of illusion .that
fell to the hem of.,her. gown, was a
vision of youthful beauty and made'
every heart beat more quickly and
silently congratulate the lucky groom
who had won her. During the mar-
riage she was surrounded by a group
of very lovely girls and fine looking
men. .
SThe ushers were Messrs. Joseph
Norfleet, Ryland Camp and Robert
O anp, of Franklin, Virginia, and
Messrs. George and Frank Camp, of
White Springs, the five cousins of


the bride. They ovore frock' coats,
gray trousers, gray gloves and tall
silk hats.
1liss Sallie Camp, the bride's sister
and maid-of-honor, was lovely in a
gown of pink crepe de chene, with
pink picture hat and carried an arm-
ful of pink roses.

A Bu l oe edng at Noon
Wednesday.
At high noon Wednesday, at the
home of the bride's parents on south
Third street, Miss Gertrude Peyser
and Mr. Bernard Seligman, of Co-
lumbus, Ga., were united in marriage,
Dr. Blatt, of Columbus, officiating.
Under the skillful hands of the
friends of the bride the rooms were
garden-like in their loveliness, great
quantities of bamboo, palms and
ferns being used. The staircase,
down which the bridal party de-
scended, was beautifully decorated,
as was indeed the entire hcuse.
Promptly at noon, to the strains of
the wedding march, beautifully
played by Miss Vivian Dame, the
bridal party, in the following order,
entered the room adjoining the hall,
where the ceremony was performed:
-Mrs. Peyser with her son, Mr. Na-
than Peyser, Mrs. Dave Ottensosser,
aunt of the bride, with Mr. Jules
Cohen, the groom with his best m an,
Mr. David I. Blascoe, of Columbus,
and the beautiful bride with her
father, Mr. Charles Peyser. Miss
Peyser and Mr. Seligman stood un-
der a wedding beil made of aspara-
gas ferns, and the ceremony, making
them man and wife, was very im-
pressively performed by Dr. Blatt.
The handsome groom wore a
Prince Albert coat, gray trousers and
white waistcoat, and was at his best.,
while the beautiful bride was never
lovelier nor more girlish looking
than in her exquisite wedding dress
of white crepe de chene with trim-
rnings of real lace. She wore a long
vail, caught to the hair with orange
blossoms, and fastened with a very
handsome diamond sunburst, the
gift of the groom, and she carried a
slidwer bououet of bride's roses.
Mrs. Peyvser wore a white cloth
dress, and Mrs. Ottensosser black
crepe de chene, and both were look-
ing particularly well.
Miss Kurniker and Miss Moses,
of Columbus, who have been Miss


Peyser's guests for some time, wore
lovely dresses of white silk.
After the ceremony an elegant
wedding breakfast of several courses
was served in the dining room. The
table was simple and lovely. Two
tall cut glass vases of pink and white
carnations and pink and white roses
resting on drawn work center pieces,
and two silver candelabra with white
candles, formed the principal decora-
tions.
Over one hundred and fifty tele-
g-ams were received by this popular
young couple and a large number of
them were read at the table. The
wedding gifts received were numer-
ous and very elegant, among the
number being a chest of silver, con-
taining twelve dozen pieces, the gift
of the brides' family. Ot-her. hand-,


cut ,W vp
bo l ti ob... z {ln the .brKiei *
family for over two hundreil years
several oil paintings from- Europe and.
many other presents from all- over
this country and Europe.
The groom's gift to his best man
was a diamond stud.
The guests were presented with,'
boxes of wedding cake as a pretty
souvenir of the wedding. They'
were in the shape of a marriage bell
and on the cover were two hearts:.
united. The box contained squares,
of fruit cake with the letters S. P.
All of the cakes used at the breakfast;
also showed this pretty conceit.
Mr. and Mrs. Seligman left on the
early morning train for a tour of the
east coast after which they will go to
New York.
Mrs. Seligman's going-away gown
was a dark green broadcloth coat
suit, with which she wore a maroon
toke trimmed with green foliage.
The bride is the only daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Peyser and is
exceedingly popular and 'attractive
and is one of Ocala's most accom-
lished musicians. She has the best

wishes of a host of friends, whose
only regret is that her manage takes
her away from Ocala.
Mr. Seligman is quite prominent in
the business world and the Jewish
social circle' s of Columbus anF, his
young bride will be cordially welcom-.
ed by his many friends in that ePv

Xev.'C. Breckenridge Wilber, rec-
tor of 'St. Luke's Episcopal Chtirch,
Atlanta, and Mrs. Kate Phillips Am-i-
mons, of Gainesville, were married
in Jacksonville Monday evening at 8
o'clock at the Church of the Good
Shepherd, Bishop Edwin Gardiner
Weed officiating. He was assisted by
Rev. Campbell Stryker, rector of the
church.
The bride wore a going-aWay gown
of dark blue with hat to match and
she entered the church with her
father, Dr. N. D. Phillips of Gaines-
ville. Mr. Wilmef entered with his
best, man, Mr. J. H. Williams, of At-
lanta.
Rev. and Mrs. Wilner will enjoy a
trip down the east coast, after which
they will make their home in At-
lanta.
In announcing their approaching
marriage the Atlanta Journal had the
following to say:
"This announcement will be of in-
terest throughout the south, both
parties being prominent. Mr. Wil-
mer, besides being greatly beloved as
man and pastor, has been in the pub-
lic eye for sowe years, as one of the
bright lights of the Episcopal minis-
try. He has long been recognized as
one of the greatest forces of the
Southern Episcopal church, being a
leader intellectually and spiritually.
His marriage is the culmination of a
pretty romance of long standing.
Mrs. Ammons is very little known in
Atlanta, but she will be warmly wel-
comed. Mr. Wilmer and his bride
will occupy the old rectory until the
new church and rectory on Peach-
tree are completed."7
A number of years ago M r. Wilmer
was rector of Grace Church in Ocala
and was immensely popular here and
it was here where the first spark of
what the Atlanta J urnal cell a ro-
mance was kindled. &4AP, aI3tD

A Matchmaking Arty.
A perfectly delightful little party
was the one givn Saturday morning
from ten to twelve o'clock by Mrs.
Jack Camp for her sister and cousin,
Miss Jessie Nurney and Miss Annie
Nurney, of Suffolk, Va., who are her
guests.
Only the unmarried set were enter-'
tained on this occasion. Mrs. Camp
is one of Ocala's most popular young
matrons and the Misses Nurney two
of the most admired young ladies
who visit in our city. They were as-
sisted by Mrs. Clarence Camp and
Mrs. Clifton Camp in entertaining
their guests.
Those present were Misses Hattie
Dye, Esther Weathers, Julia Hance,
of New Jersey, Annie Land, of North
Carolina, Marie Patrick, of New York,
Helen Bush, of Boston, Janie Wood-
Florrie Crook, of Palatka, row,
of Scotland, Sue Barco, Emdily
Ford, Meta Jewett, Margaret Taylor,
Valeta Potter, Mary Anderson, Sara
and Violet Harris, Johnnie Liddon,
Louella Gary, Edith Piatt, and An-
nie Davis.
A very novel contest was enjoyed
during the morning. It was called a
"matchmaking" contest. Figures of
"Foxy Grandpa," "Happy Hooli-
gan," the "Captain" and other noted
funny paper heroes and heroines had
been cut out and dismembered. The
different parts were then passed
around and the young ladies allowed
to draw three parts and were requir-
ed to paste them together into the
semblance of a man or woman as the
case might be. Some of the results
were most ludicrous, as they were
not allowed to "swap" with their
neighbors but one time, consequent-
the wrong heads were attached to
the wrong bodies, and vice versa.
Miss Dye and Miss Ford succeeded
in making perfect figures, the former
one of a little girl and the latter the
figure of "Little Boy Blue." On
cutting for the prize, a handsome
gilt framed picture, Mists Dye won it
and Miss Ford was consoled by a
bouquet of bride roses. Miss Patrick


was given the booby prize for the
most ill-matched man. Her prize
was a china ornnient, a figure ofA
the "captain. '
A luncheon consisting of chicken
salad, wafers, olives, charlotte russe
and coffee was served buffet style
after the contest and the morning
was thoroughly enjoyed. j

Only the unmarried set were pres-
edt at this party, which was a pretty
compliment to Mrs. Miller's guest,
Miss Patrick, of New York, and Miss
Bush, of Boston, the guest of Mr. and
M rs. Chazal.

Another One of Those. Bright Bouquets
In inclosing a check for the Ocala

In Honor Lf Mrs. .tWriith.".
Friday afternoon Mrs. John W.
Pearson entertained at a large party
in compliment to her daughter, Mrs.
Gordon Dulin Wright, of St. Joseph,
Mo., formerly Miss Pearl Pearson, of
this i4y. This is Mrs. Wright's first
visit to Ocala since her marriage,
and her friends axe according her a
most cordial welcome.
At this party, at which she was the
guest of honor, she was very lovely
in a gown of pale blue silk, muchly
shirred and lace trimmed.
Mrs. Pearson and Mrs. \W'right
were assisted by Mrs. W. M. Going
and Misses Ethel and Beatrice Sin-
clair.
In the rear of the hall at a very
attractively decorated table Misses
Alta Pearson and marguerite Porter
served punch.
After the guests had all assembled
and found their places at the tables
a novel and unique game lwas
played. On the center of each bible
was a bowl of peanuts and four long
hatpins. The idea of the game was
to get as many peanuts out of the
bowl as possible with'the point of the
"pin, and the contestants were com-
pelled to hold the pins by the heads
and not half way down. The game was
played progressively, and was most
exciting, and produced lots of fun.
Some proved themselves to be ex-
pert peanut stickers, while others
had the greatest difficulty in getting
out the nuts. Miss Ethel Sinclair
won twenty-four games, thereby
showing herself to be the most skil-
ful, and receiving the prize, a beauti-
ful gold crescent pin. M rs. Lee
Miller received the booby prize, a
cunning little doll made entirely of
peanuts, and dressed in tissue 'paper
clothes.
The scores were marked by Misses
Lucile Standley, Mary Burford, Lida
McDougall, Beulah Hall and Leta
Camp, and after the games these
young ladies served the guests with4
a most delicious collation.
Tne ladies who paid their respects
to Mrs. Pearson and she fair guest of


honor were Mrs. R. A. Burford, Mrs.
E. J. Redding, Mrs. Thomas Sexton,

Death is an old visitor, and has en;
tered nearly every home, yet, in
spite of this, he is always unwel-
come, and never fails to leave a
wound that cannot be healed. When
he enters the home and takes there-
from the young man who has success-
fully made the first rung of the lad-
der of fame and who possesses the
talent and ambition necessary for
the entire ascent, his visit is particu-
larly distressing and brings deep and
lasting sorrow.
Harry D. Izlar was born in Black-
ville, S. C., thirty years ago, and
died in Ocala, Fla., Monday morn-
ing. February 27, 1905, at 6 o'clock.
A number of years ago Mr. Izlar
was in the railroad service in Jack-
sonville and Tampa. and also lived in
Gainesville for some time, where he
was engaged in the life insurance
business. He decided to study law,
and went to South Carolina and was
graduated from Wooford in the class
of '01. He was secretary of his class,
and was exceedingly brilliant and
popular among slsmates.
He was the i son of Major
and Mrs. Lauriston T. Izlar, of this
city, who moved here from Black-
ville a little over two years ago on
account of the ill health of their son.
He engaged in the practice of law
here with his father, and was ap.


pointed court stenographer.
Since coming to Ocila his health
had greatly improved, and it was
hoped that in time he would entirely
recover.
A few months ago he abandoned
his law practice and moved out on a
farm, three miles north of town,
where he engaged in the chicken bus-
iness with Mr. Andrew Russell. He
had been quite sick for about ten
days, yet it was not until Sunday
that his condition was considered
alarming. He realized that the end.
was near, and his death was very
calm and peaceful,
Of his immediate family he is sur-
vived by his parents, two brothers,
Dr. A. L. Izlar and Valmere Izlar, of
this city, and three sisters, Mrs. C.
A. Buist, of Blackville, S. C., MNrs.
Clifford L. Anderson, of Roanoke,
Va., Miss M. Eloyse Izlar, of this
city, besides a large number of rela-
tives and many very warm friends,
all over Florida and South Carolina.-
He was a very bright and cultured
young man with very insinuating
manners and pleasing address. He
was genial and companionable and
made friends of all who knew him,
and his death will be a great loss to
his family andfo his friends.
The funeral will take place at
Greenwood cemetery at 10 o'clock
,this morning. Rev. L. W. Moore, of
the Methodist church, of which Mr.
Izlar was a member, and the Masons
will have charge of the services,.


after which the remainder of the
afternoon was spent playing different
games. .-
There was a pretty souvenir, in-
eluding hat pins, shirt waist pins,
opera bags, sachets, books, etc., for
each guest.
One of the cakes was cut by the young
ladies and with each slice was a num-
bered ribbon corresponding with the
numbers of the souvenirs and in this
way the prizes were drawn. There
were special favors, beautiful spoons
for the two guests-of-honor.
Mrs. McConathy's guests were
Misses Mabel and Edith Taylor,
Esther Weathers, Hattie Dye, Edith
Piatt, Mona Hiller, Emily Ford, Sue
Barco, Mary Anderson, Shirley
Montgomery, Meta Jewett, Johnnie
Liddon, Louella Gary, Valeta Potter,
Gertrude Pereda, Sara and Violet


be present. -
The Ocala bar held a meeting at
noon Monday, Judge W. S. Bullock
presiding, and T. E. Briggs acting-
secretary. Messrs. R. L. Anderson,
0. T. Green and E. W. Davis were
appointed to draft suitable resolutions
on the death of this bright young
member of the bar. They will at-
tend the funeral in a body this morn-
ing.
It is almost impossible to realize
that one so young as he was, :and
with such a promise of life before
him, should so soon have passed from
the scenes of life and have gone to
his home in the realms of eternal
day.
The deepest sympathy is felt by

the people of Ocala for the loved
ones he has left behind.
"He came into the world in tears
when all around were smiles; but
when he left this world he was in
smiles while all around him were in
tears."
noo Taylo.
Misses Mabel and Edith Taylor, of
Cincinnati, who are visiting. Miss
Esther Weathers, were. the guests of
honor yesterday afternoon at a very
delightful tea given by Mrs. Richard
McConathy at the Savoy hotel. Her
guests were the members of the
young ladies card club and a charm-
ingly informal afternoon was spent
by the young people.
Mrs. McConathy was assisted by
the honorees and Misses Weathers,
Dye, Whitfield, Mrs. Snyder and
Mrs. Barco.
During the afternoon Miss Whit-
field, Miss Liddon and Mrs. Camp
rendered several instrumental and
vocal solos.
The small room back of the parlor
was used as a dining room. The
serving table was beautifully dec-
orated in violets and with its pretty
appointments of cut glass, silver and
hand painted china was most attrac-
tive. A delicious menu was served


I '


Old Brooklyn Bridge.-
(WITH A ROSE FOR LONGFELLOW'S
GRAVE.)
The following beautiful poem was
written by Mr. Leon Hanlon, of New
York, formerly of this city. Mr.
Hanlon has had the peom neatly got-
ten up with facsimile of original rnan-
uscript and portrait of the author.
Mr. Hanlon has sent the editor of
this paper an Autograph copy with
the following compliment:
"Fate meant him for a poet, but the"
tags .
Were mixed; so Harris writes in1
prose."
The poem is as follows:
"I stand on the bridge at sunset,
As the hurrying crowd goes by;
Below is the quiet river,
And a red-gold tints the sky.
The roar of the distant city
Becomes a deep-drawn sigh,
And into my dreaming fancy
Steals the glance of a soft brown eye.
My heart is young and restless,
My soul has but one cry:
Alas, for the endless torture
Of a love that will not die!
Old bridge, your work is noble!
Your pillars are strong and true;
Your piers reach under the river,
And your towers kiss the blue.
As long as men shall labor,
As long as women shall love,
The bridge will bear its burden
And the blue sky bend above;
As long as time shall hold me,
And the gift of death deny,
My heart must bear its burden
Of a love that will not die.
But now the night has fallen,
And stars, like angels, peep;
The city awakes to beauty,
As a million bright lights leap;
I think of a splendid city
That no man's eye hath seen,
And the bridge of faith that spans
The river of death between.
Perhaps when I cross over

The Mis*ei Harris
pliment to Twoql
Thursday even


South Third str l issues Sara and
Violet Harris ga i attractive card
party in complim6 ct_ Miss Shirley
Montgomery, of Concord, N. C., who
is the guest of lVI nderson, and
Miss Edna Alice lp, of German
Valley, New Jerseywho is visiting
her sister, Mrs. C. Welsh at Cor-
nell.
The house was ttily decorated
with fragrant wood blossoms,
white spirea, pea blossoms, violets
and wistaria, and e nine card tables
were arranged in parlor and the
living room.
Both the fa* s of honor were
in white, Mi nr fgomery wearing
a lace trimm Pi ty silk, and Miss
Delp, white organdie with pink sash
and a touch of pink in her coiffure.
Progressive whist was played and
the contest was quite spirited. Mr.
and Mrs. Welsh marked the scores
on attractive little "sunbonnet-girl"
score cards, and at the conclusion of
the games it was found that Miss
Potter and Mr. Helvenston had won
the greatest number of games. The
former was presented a dainty chafing
dish apron, and the latter a silver
mounted whisk broom. The booby
prizes, a fancy blotter and a pearl
handle knife, were given to Miss
Edith Taylor and Mr. Howard Clark.
After the games a salad course with
hot chocolate was served. Only the
unmarried set were entertained by
the Misses Harris, and the young
people spent a very pleasant evening
together.
Those present were: Misses Shirley
Montgomery, Edna Delph, Mabel and
Edith Taylor. Mary Anderson, Sue
Barco, Esther Weathers, Hattie Dye,
Valeta Potter, Florence Walters,
Gertrude Pereda, Matuie Williams,
Janie Woodrow, Annie Davis, Nellie
Curd, Mona Hiller, Sarah McCreery,

On St. Patrick's Day the Ocala
Banner appeared with a green head

Harris is not an Irishman-at least
his name does not sound like it. Yel-
low journalism is decidedly common
these days, but this is our first collis-
ion with the green brand. Yellow
and green make blue. Blue-well,
let that pass. The paper, although
white, was read. Red, white and
blue! Hurrah for Harris and the
Banner and the patriotism they sig-

Delights Everyone-Large Ocala Party
Among the Eager Listeners.
Jacksonville, March 12, 19t15.
Staff Correspondence.
The Duval Theatre in Jacksonville
was packed Saturday night by people
eager to hear Madame Melba and her
grand concert company.
Madame Melba's name appeared
but three times on the program but
she was in a most gracious and ac-
commodating humor and responded
numerous times to the encores and
ovations she received. In all she
sang seven numbers and her hearers
were enraptured. The perfect rendi-
tion of her songs, the purity, clear-
ness and birdlike notes of this marvel-
ous singer rightfully proclaim her the
"queen of song." She sang the Mad
Scene from Lucia di Lammermoor
with flute obligato and the notes of
the singer and the notes of the flute
blended into the most beautiful har-
mony and it was almost impossible to
distinguish the one from the other.
The prima donna's other selections
were Tosti's "Good-Bye" and "Se
Seran Rose Valse," by Arditi, and to
the spontaneous and deafening ap-
plause she responded four times with
the following numbers: "Over the
Hills," "Coming Through the Rye,"
"Nimphs and Fauns" and "The
Three Green Bonnets."
The celebrated baritone, Mons.
Gilbert and the southern tenor, Mr.
Ellison Van Hoose, of Gainesville,
Georgia, added to the many laurels
that they have won on their tour
with Madame Melba.
Miss Davies, the pianist and Mr.
North, flutist, are splendid musicians
and their accompaniments were ex-
ceedingly pleasing.
Signorina Sassoli, the harpist with
Madame Melba, plays divinely. She
was down for two numbers to both of
which she gave encores. She is
charmingly girlish and has very at-
tractive stage manners and with her
wonderful harp, she was hardly less
of a star than the "bright particular
star" of the evening.

SARA ELIZABETH HARRIS,
In Daily Florida Sun.


-In'1883 when Ocala was almost en-
irely destroyed by a devastating fire
Moa -cal paper predicted that it would
.jot be rebuilt in ten years, but while
hiheembers were yet smoking her cit-
imfhs, with the push and enterprise
displayed by Jacksonville on a later
-qcasion, began the work of rebuild-
ing and the little city, Phoenix-like,
arose from hei ashes better and more
substantial than ever.
A few years later phosphate was
discovered in the county by one of
her citizens and Ocala rapidly became
Re center of a busy, bustling, hust-
ling activity.
She continued to enjoy marked
sperity until she was again pros-
trated by the disastrous freeze of
1894-95.
This calamity hit Ocala with great-
er severity than any other city in
,Florida being as she was the very
center of this great industry. In one
section of the county there was
almost five miles of continuous bear-
ing groves and at one time the
statistics showed that nearly four-
`lfths of the entire orange crop of
Jorida was shipped from this coun-
ty.
Following quickly upon the heels
of the freeze one bank after another
collapsed and men who were pros-
perous found themselves almost pen-
niless. Several of the state and
county officials had large sums of
money deposited in these defunct
banks and a number of Ocala's prom-
inent business men were on their
bonds and this added to the already
crushing financial blow. It is almost
impossible to realize the dismay and

An Enjoyable Fox Hu-int -
Monday night quite a party .of
Ocala people enjoyed a fox hunt.,
The party left the city about 6 o'clock,
the objective point being the scrub
below Santos, where the cunning
reynard abounds.
In the party were Messrs. J. L.
Smoak, Henry Livingston, Gary Mc-
Ateer, Louis Lang, J. C. Moody, Dr.
W. H. Powers, Mr. and Mrs. W. P.
Edwards, Mr. and Mrs. S. T. Sis-
trunk, Misses Esther Weathers, Lou-
ella Gary, Lida Brown, Sara and Vio-
let Harris and Hattie Dye.
Messrs. Lang, Smoak and Moody
made the trip in the former's new
automobile, and the rest of the party
went in teams.
On arriving at their destination the
twelve dogs were turned loose and
very soon jumped a fox, and for
nearly three hours he gave them a
most interesting and exciting chase.
He was finally run to earth and Mr.
Livingston being the first one in at
the catch secured the brush, which
was presented to Miss Brown, who is
a visitor to Ocala.
A big camp fire was built and sit-
ting around it games and tales were
told, coffee and chocolate brewed and
a big supper' eaten.
The night was a perfect one for a
chase, and the entire evening was a
very delightful one..

Ocala and Her Automobiles.
Miss Jefferson Bell, in one of her
interesting and chatty letters from
Tallahassee to the Florida Sun-
Claude L'Engle's bright newspaper-
has the following to say of interest
to Ocala people:
I am human enough to be rather
pleased to announce that once, and
only once, for all I know, Sam Russ,
the infallible Sam Russ, has made a
break! In his bright lobby gossip
mentioning Mr. Wartmann's automo-
bile bill he says that he hears that
Ocala has but one automobile. Be it
known that I as well as Mr. Brown,


keep my citizenship in Marion coun-
ty, and know whereof I speak. Mr.
Russ overlooks the fact that Ocala
has a large percentage of opulent
citizens who have more money than
they know what to do with, conse-
quently the automobile craze is in full
blast there. There are perhaps
twenty machines in and around Ocala,
and from the number of accidents
caused by the meetings of unsophis-
ticated country nags and gasoline
buggies there is considerable neces.
sity for some law setting a reasonable
limit upon the rights and privileges
of the fortunate few who are able to
own a machine. f s/9 3

HI.LLPS RECEPTION.


They Entertain Very Elaborately and
Delightfully Last Night.
Ocala society has anticipated with
great pleasure for the past week Mr.
and Mrs. Richard S. Hall's reception
last night. Their anticipations were
fully realized, for there has never
been an entertainment more replete
with attractive and appropriate ap-
pointments than the beautiful affair
of last evening.
The Hall residence on Fort King
avenue is admirably suited for enter-
taining, and it was very elaborately
decorated at this time. The party
was Japanese in every detail and the
arrangements were perfect.
The large piazzas were beautifully
illuminated with Japanese lanterns,
and on entering the hall the guests
were welcomed by Miss M attie Wil-
inams, one of the guests-of honor, and
M-T's. William Hocker.
In the parlor Mrs. Hall was assist-
ed in receiving by Miss Carrie Wil-
liams, the other, guest-of-honor; Rev.
'and Mrs. C. C. Carroll and Mrs. E.
H. Mote, of Jacksonville. Mr. HalPs
absence was much regretted. He
vas called to Jacksonville on busi-
ness and was unable to be present.
All of the rooms were very uastc-
fully decorated with bamboo, Japa-
nese lanterns and fans and red and
yellow flowers. The combination of
these brilliant Japanese colors was
exceedingly effective.
In one corner of the hall under a
big Japanese umbrella, punch was
served by five dainty little maidens
from fair Japan, wearing long
kimonas and other Japanese acces-
sories. They were Misses Mary Bur-
ford, Leta Camp, Marguerite Porter,
Lucile Standley and Alta Pearson.
These snme young girls served in the
dining room into which the guests
were invited' by Mrs. Miller, Mrs.
Hocker, and Miss Williams. It was


a particularly pretty room in its garb
of red and yellow flowers, bamboo
and asparagus ferns. Mrs. Sistrunk
sat at th- table and poured tea, and
to caNry out the Japanese effect, she
also donned a kimona. Three courses
were served. The salad was decorat-
ed with yellow and red nasturtiums,
evith the bisque cream, red and green
cherries were used and the cakes
were iced in red and yellow and gin-
ger candy was used.
Japanese incense was burned
throughout the house.
The special game of the evening
was throwing bean bags. These red
-aa~k @ w bags were of different
sizes, each one counting a different
score and' they were thrown through
a small sized opening in a large board
that was very appropriately decorat-

By J. A. HARRIS, JR. a. --

The sun shone slanting on the fields Upon the heights of Fredericksburg
One afternoon in May, Lee calmly watched the foe,
The insects droned about the flowers While Stosewall Jackson led the troops
On that warm summer day, 9own in'the plain below; -- -
Close by, the Rappahannock And on the heights the cannon
Flowed lazily along; Their fearful message roared, -
Afar the bells of Fredericksburg As from on high a rapid fire -
Chimed forth their evening song. Of bombshells flaming higher and-higher "
Amidst a threatening bank of clouds Above the fest soared. .
The sun went down to rest, All day the Federal army tried
And muttering thunder from afar In vain to leave the wood,
The heavy air oppressed; The ranks af gray were well intrenched,
The hurrying clouds o'erspread the sky, And firm their ground they stood, r
And hid the moon's fair light: But Stonewall Jackson, with his troops,
The gloomy shadows of the trees, In cover of the night,
Meved weirdly by the fitful breeze, Attacked the force among the trees
Soon darkened into pight, And routed Hooker's right,
Portentious was the gloomy night But victory here was dearly gained, "
Of great disaster near, For faithful ,Jackson fell,
With grim forebodings fraught the clouds And to his troops assembled round
That filled the atmosphere. He breathed his last farewvel. .
But hark! the thunder is not all His soldiers, flushed with victory,
That echoes through the glen, Were cast in deepest gloom.
The creak of wagons, clank of steel, For at the close of that dire day
The rythmic step of heel on heel, All cold and stiff their leader lay,
The tread of marching men! The Wilderness his tomb.
The morh dawned gray and gloomy, In silence moved the men about

The swirling Rappahannock And sorrow o'erhung all the camp.
Surged boisterously past, And all the country round. -
Encamped within the Wilderness And all the nations mourned his loss,
The Union army lay, A man so brave, so true,
While close outside, with watchful eye, A man beloved by everyone,,
Were serried ranks of gray. Alike by gray and blue.

Brrs, McKean and Mrs. Give
.Lovely Tea for Miss Liddon.
Yesterday afternoon at five o'clock
Mrs. George R. McKean and Mrs.
Qharles V. Miller gave a very lovely
party in compliment to Miss Johnnie
Lidden, who is to be married next
Wednesday night to Dr. Dell, of
Gainesville.
The guests were invited to a "hand-
kerchief shower" and they also had
to come in a shower as it rained dur-
ing almost the entire afternoon, but
while it was greatly regretted that
the weather was so bad, still, all
protested that the shower was most
appropriate.
The beautiful bride-to-be was ra-
diantly lovely in a handsome violet
silk gown elaborately trimmed with
violet lace and chiffon and a great
deal of hand work.
The hostesses were assisted by
Mrs. F. L. Watson, Mrs. A. E. Gerig
and Mrs. J.E. Oates, of DeLand, and
in the hall punch was served by Mrs.
0. C. Carroll and Mrs. S. A. Rawls.
After the guests had all arrived
they were invited into the den where
hung a large wedding bell. As Miss
Liddon walked under the bell the
clapper was pulled and she was liter-
ally showered with exquisite hand-
kerchiefs. With each handkerchief
was a verse, original with the donor;
unique in its edvice and good wishes
to the bride-elect and much merri-
ment was caused by the reading
aloud of the same.
The following are a few of the
rhymes:
"John and Jim together
Decide to climb the hill
Happiness they wish to find
And friends all hope they will
She will sew the buttons on
And be a model wife
While he deals out those awful pills
That cure the ills of life."
"On June first nineteen hundred five
We gather together to connive
In giving the bride a 'kerchief shower
Pray do not think it her only dower
For nature has taken the matter in
hand


Has given this member of our band
All the graces she can command
At least so thinks (but keep it quiet!)
One of her friends named E lith Piatt.)"
"This is not meant to dry thy tears
For I could wish thy tears were few
Nor hide thine eyes when love appears
As love in love's eyes will do.
But having touched thy lips and hair
A keepsake should you briefly part
It might lie next thy lover's heart."
Mrs. Oates sang a beautiful solo
after the poems were read, which
was very much enjoyed.
There were about thirty ladies of
both the married and the unmarried
contingent present and this affair
was a very pretty compliment to one
of Ocala's most popular belles. It is
a matter of very great regret that
Miss Liddon is going to leave Ocala
but her friends here hope for fre-
quent visits from her. w I $


AL FRESCO WEDDING


Miss J hnnie Liddon and Dr. James M.
Dell United In Marriage at the
Bride's Home.


I


Last night the. home of Mr. and
Mrs. Charles Alexander Liddon on.
Ocklawaha avenue was the scene of
a very lovely event, when their
charming daughter, Miss Johnnie
Liddon, was married to jr. James
Maxwell Dell, of Gainesville. The
hour of the wedding was set for nine
o'clock, and some time before that
hour the home and yard was filled
with friends who had come to witness
the nuptials.
The entire house was very prettily
and simply decorated with bamboo,
palms and flowers. At the front door
Mrs. E. L. Carney, Mrs. R. G. Blake
and Mrs. Hatchell received the guests
and gave them a happy welcome.
Mrs. S. T. Sistrunk introduced the
guests to the receiving party, who
stood in the back parlor, which was
very prettily decorated.
In the receiving line were:
Mrs. J. B. Dell and Mrs. John
Futch, of Gainesville, Mrs. B. J. Pot-
ter, Mrs. Clarence Camp, Mrs. D. E.
Mclver, Mvirs. W. V. Newsom, Mrs.
C. R. Tydings and Mrs. Eugene
Mathews, of Starke.
The wedding ceremony was per-
formed in the yard under a big oak
tree. A beautiful canopy had been
built of large white pillars draped
with ropes of bamboo and surround-
ed with beautiful palmetto trees and
potted plants. The yard was lighted
by electricity, the lights all being
shaded in pale green. The night was
beautiful and the picture around the
improvised altar was indeed a beau-
tiful one.
At nine o'clock Mr. Edwin P. Pitt-
man played the Mendlessohn wedding
march and the attendants marched
from the diningroom through the hall
out into the yard and formed an aisle
through which the bride and groom
walked. They carried garlands of
smilax and came out of the house in
the following order: Mrs. Mallory
Liddon with Mrs. C. V. Miller; Miss
G.'ace Hatchell with Mr .Sm| T.
Dell, of Gainesville; Miss Lula Mel-


Ion, of Tampa, with Miss Rhoda Lid-
don; M rs. J. B. Hiers, of Jackson-
ville, with Miss Valeta Potter; Miss
Louella Gary with Miss Evelyn Lid-
don, all of whom wore exquisite
white dresses.
The two sisters of the bride, Misses
Iola and Caro Liddon, were the maids
of honor and came in after the mat
rons and bridesmaids. They wer(
also in white and carried pink brides
maid's ioses.
Next came the pretty little ring
bearer, Ellen Stripling, followed by
the dainty little flower girls, France:
Liddon and Janet Mathews, wh<
carried baskets of daisies and scatter
ed them in the pathway of the bride


Seaboard for their future home
in Gainesville. Mrs. Dell's going-
away gown was of blue louisine silk
trimmed with hand embroidered lace
in the peacock effect with which
she wore a blue braid and maline hat
to match. The costume was a most
becoming one and in it the bride
looked no less lovely than in her
wedding gown.
Dr. and Mrs. Dell's many friends
wish for them a married life as full of
- happiness and pleasure as was their
wedding night.
_ _


The Lnreef.1tfte. gins wore accorneon-
plaited pink organdie frocks and adat-
ed a pretty touch of color to the pic'i
ture.
Dr. Dell had as his best man his
only brother, Mr. Sam T. Dell, of
Gainesville.
The bride came out with her- fath-
er, Mr. C."A. Liddon. She was ex-
quisitely lovely in a handsome white
crepe de chene gown, beautifully
trimmed with hand-made lace and
seed pearls and finished with satin
ribbon lacings with ball ends. She
wore a long white tulle veil and car-
ried bride's roses and was as charm-
ingly beautiful a bride as one coula
wish to see.
The Rev. C. C. Carroll, of the Bap-
tist church, pronounced the mystic
words that made Dr. Dell and Miss
Liddon man and wife, and during the
ceremony Mr. Pittman played very
softly, "Cupid's Garden."
After the ceremony Dr. and Mrs.
Dell were kept very busy receiving
the congratulations and best wishes of
their friends, the guests remaining
for several hours.
On the front veranda the two
punch bowls were presided over by
Mrs. Jack Camp. Mrs. F. L. Watson,
Mrs. A. E. Gerig, Mrs. A. Brown,
Mrs. S. T. Sistrunk. Miss Annie Da-
vis and Miss Gertrude Pereda. Light
refreshments were served, buffet
style, both in the house and yard.
In the room to the rear of the li-
brary the wedding gifts were display-
ed and they were very numerous and
beautiful and were greatly admired.
Miss Liddon's gifts to her attendants
were 'lovely crescent shaped pins
with pearls.
The bride is one of Ocala's most
popular, vivacious and lovely young
ladies and it is with much regret
that we resign her to our sister city,
Gainesville, where her husband is a
popular young physician with a very
promising future. He is a son of
Capt. and Mrs. J.Maxey Dell and be-
longs to one of Gainesville's most
prominent old families.',,,,
.d Mrs. Dell left over the


Mrs. Carney, who is one of our
most popular matrons, was especially
charming at this time and' made her-
self more a friend than ever to the
young people. She was assisted by
Mrs. W. V. Newsom and only the un-
married set was entertained. The
piazza was converted into a cozy lit-
tle summer parlor, where the guests
were entertained.
Mrs. Hiers was before her marriage
an Ocala girl and it is a great treat
for the girls to be with her again.
Delicious peach ice and cake was
erveTand the afternoon was a very
pleasant one.
The young ladies present were:
Misses Meta J#.Wett, Sue Barco, Ma-
mie Taylor, Annie Davis, Edith

Mr. Masters and
S Miss Mixon Married.


The announcement that Mr. Arthur
Masters, of this city, and Miss Pau-
line Mixon were quietly married at
five o'clock Monday afternoon at the
home of the bride's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Mixon, at Wiilliston,, will be
quite a surprise to the friends of the
young couple in this city. The cere-
mony was performed by the Rev. Mr.
Norwood and was witnessed by only
the immediate family of the br de.
So quiet did Mr. Masters and Miss
Mixon keep their intentions that not
a word of their secret crept out until
last night when they arrived home on
the half-past six o'clock train.
Mr. Masters is a son of Col. Hibbert
B. Masters, a prominent wholesale
merchant of New York, and owner
of the H. B. Masters department
store in this city. He came to Ocala
several years ago and so well did he
like it here that he decided to make
it his permanent home. He is now
m the insurance business.
Mrs. Masters has spent a good deal
of her time in Ocala with her sister,
Mrs. C. J. Phillips, and is a young
lady of charming manners and at-
tractive personality, and the many
friends she has made on her visits
here are exceedingly glad that she
will now live in this city.
Mr. and Mrs. Masters are now at
home at the residence of Mr. and
Mrs. C. J. Phillips on South Third
street.
The Ocala Banner and the many
other Ocala friends of this popular
young couple extend congratulations
to Mr. Masters and wish for him and
his wife every possible happiness in
their married life.

QOD'S FIIG ER, U, 1
HER ND SHE SLEPT


Yesterday afternoon at 6 o'clock the
spirit of Mrs. Sarah A. Harris, an
aged pioneer, winged its flight to
that "city not made with hands eter-
nal in the heavens."
Mrs. Harris was born near Quincy,
in Gadsden county, in the year 1820.
Her father, Berrian McDonald, after-
wards moved to Fort Gaines, Ga.
She was married to Ebenezer J. Har-
ris in 1838 and came to Florida in the
early 40's and settled on what is now
known as Lake Harris, where they be-
gan the planting of an orange grove
and the raising of a family. Their
nearest neighbor was thirty-five miles
distant. They had five sons born to
them, and looking to their education
they moved to Ocala in the early 50's
and soon afterwards purchased the
Ocala House, which they sold just
previous to the great fire in 1883.
Mrs. Harris was a very strong and
resolute woman and was conspicuous
in religious and charitable works and
took a very great interest in the
Methodist church, of which? she was
a conspicuous and active member.
She gave two sons to the service of
the Confederate cause, and during
that struggle no soldier was allowed
by her to pass through Ocala hungry
or empty-handed, and she is remem-
bered with great affection by many a
Confederate veteran.
She and her husband left Ocala to
reside at Citra in 18$0 with their son,
Mr. James A. Harris, and after the.
death of her husband, which occurred
March 5, 1885, she continued to live
with her son, who for the past sever-
al years has lived at Pannasoffke e.
Mrs. Harris came to Ocala just two
weeks ago today to visit her nephew,
Mr. Frank Harris, and was taken sick
immediately after her arrival, but
was not regarded as seriously ill un-
til yesterday, when she was taken
with terrible paroxyisms in her sides
and back and when the pain reached
her heart her death occurred very


suddenly. The day before her death
she was able to be downstairs all day
and she was perfectly rational up to
moment death relieved her of
sufferings.
She leaves one son, Mr. James
Harris, who is now in New York, and
no arrangements will be made for
the funeral until he is heard from.
Yesterday I looked on one
Who lay asleep in perfect peace,
Her long imprisonment of life was done
Eternit 's grcat freedom her release
Had bought, yet they who loved her
called her dead ,
And wept, refusing to be comforted.

EIT REST.


^w~~z


After a pilgrimage of eighty-six
years through this world of ours,
which she helped to adorn, beautify
and bless, the spirit of Mrs. Sarah A.
Harris crossed the mystic river to
take its place with the celestial hosts
on the other shore.
All that was mortal of her was laid
to rest Sunday afternoon and the
large number that attended the
funeral services showed in what
reverence, esteem and affection she
was held.
The floral offerings were beautiful
and abundant, there being lovely
wreaths and crosses from the Home
Mission Society, the Senior Epworth
League and the Junior Epworth
League of the Methodist church, be-
sides many from the personal friends
of the deceased.
The remains were first conveyed to
the Methodist church where the servi-
ces were held and after a sweet song
by the choir Rev. L. W. Moore de-
livered the following very heartfelt
and touching tribute:

she enters into the human descent of.
our Lord, there are other reasons
why her burial is specially mentioned'
and why the rolling centuries ha
not yet hidden her memorial slab. i,
is the character of Rachel that speak
to us more than her pedigree or her
royal line. Piety, devotion, and he.r
beautiful, uncomplaining love, all tefl,
us that she is worthy of a standing
tomb upon which the nations of earth i
may look with admiring eyes. I-i
this brief outline do we not see many
other Rachels of today? Is not"
Rachel's life and burial a prototype
of other women equally beautiful in
life and peaceful in death?
Eighty-six years ago sister Harris
was born; and from that distant date
up to last Friday at 6 p. m., her life
was as eventful and beautiful as was
that of Jacob's wife. I say eventful
-for all our lives are eventful. The
battle of private life has its unpub-.
lished events, and these are the ones
that test the mental, moral, and
religious, -texture of which we are
S,. -


"And Rai-hel died, a- was wned. in th.
way to Ephrath which is Bethlehem. And
'-JAcob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the
pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day. "-Get.
35:i9, 20.
This is a ver3a touching record.
Special mention is made, not only of
Rachel's demise, but of the effort to,
mark the spot where the precious,
faithful wife and mother was to lie
through the historic centuries.
A pillar was placed on her grave;
and true to the scripture, it is called
Rachel's pillar (.or tomb) unto this
day. Thirty-six hundred and thirty-
four years ago Jacob buried his first
love, but today, after the effacement
of many other historic scenes, trav-
elers in the Holy Land can stop and,
view Rachel's tomb in the way o;,
Ephrath.
A touching record I say. This'
special mention of Rachel's death
and careful burial puts one to study-
ing the character, and to a successful,
search, .after the incidents which
clothe the record with peculiar beau-
ty and pathos. Standing, in imagi-
nation before her tomb, the mind
.runs back to the house of Laban,
where the betrothal was effected--
which betrothal doubtless was ar-
ranged in heaven-and after four-
teen years of unmixed devotion, was
consummated in marriage. It was a
case of genuine love and affection
running in a God-given channel,,
because God had given His silent
direction in the matter. Never was.
drawn a more beautiful picture -of
trueness, faithfulness, mutual-consid-`
eration, forbearance and undying
devotion.
From that beautiful nuptial scene;
in the land of Laban the picture, is

testify the loss they feel in the death
of Mrs. Sara A. Harris, whose life was
such a benefaction and benediction
to them twenty-five years and more.
ago. They attribute the possession
of their homes and their success
largely to the-advice and counsels
given them by her and her noble
husband, Hon. E. J. Harris.
It seems hard to reconcile the fact
that such jewels should be trans-
planted to the realms of bliss, which
they feel confident that these philan-
thropists are now enjoying; yet, with
saddened hearts we, her former
valets and maids, certify that though
mistress of her belongings, she was
always kind, painstaking and for-
bearing with each of us.
We are possessed of hearts that
,ause us, though differing in race, to
ed a tear of regret that our great
benefactors has crossed to that
"great beyond" to which every soul
must go.
Their lives will ever, though per-
haps as in the past, silently concealed
in our breasts, be a bright star that
.we'shall endeavor to follow as near.
as our dim visions will permit.
We know those who would have
made Ocala greater thirty years ago,
and we know those who ever and
,.anon assisted the weak and gave in-
structions to the deserving, but none
have ever lived or will ever live that
possessed greater care or more digni-
fied devotion to all interests than
Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Harris.
We beg to subscribe ourselves in
sorrow, their former employees.

Mr. William Theodore Gary, mem-r
bers of the class of '97 of the Univer-
sity of Florida, then the Agricultural
College, and coming from two of the
oldest and best known families in the
state, who have been prominent so-
cially, educationally and otherwise,
were united in marriage early this
morning at the home of Miss Yo-
cum's parents, Dr. and Mrs. William
Fisk Yocum.
Dr. Yocum, who for years has been
the revered instructor of Latin,Greek
and philosophy in our university, and
at one time its president, solemnized
the service.
Mrs. Ed Haymanrendered Mendel-
ssohn's exquisite wedding march dur-
ing the entrance of the bridal party,
who, as the ritual was impressively
read by Dr. Yocum, stood before a
huge embankment of maidenhair
fern, evergreen and white water lil-
lies.
Miss Myra Finley, of this city, and
Mr. Gary Alexander, of Brooksville,
cousins of the groom and members of
the class of '05, were, respectively
maid of honor and best man.
Miss Yoeum was exceedingly lovely
in white crepe de chine and white
lace, with tulle veil and orange blos-
soms. Her bouquet consisted of
white carnations and fern.
The maid of honor was beautifully
and becomingly dressed in yellow
silk, and also carried carnations and
fern.
The marriage of these two well
known young people is the happy
consummation of a friendship formed
during college days and as graduates
in the same class. Many others of
this class were present to witness the
ceremony, and the occasion was quite
pleasant.
Both Miss Yocum and Mr. Gary
have been prominent in our state ed-
ucational circles, Mr. Gary being at
one time a member ot the faculty of
the Ocala high school, and Miss Yo-]
cum, who was instructor in botany at
Shorter College, Rome, Ga., for the


past year, has also taught school in
Florida.
At present Mr. Gary holds the po-
sition of cashier of the Chambliss
Banking company, in Ocala, the
president of this institution sending
the bride, as a token of their esteem
for him, a very handsome plush case,
containing two twenty and one ten-
dollar gold pieces.

One of the most thoroughly enjoy-

one at which Miss Mary Anderson.:
and Mrs. Clifton Camp entertained'
at the home of the former on Friday
evening for their guest, Miss Carrie.
Draper, of Ainiston, Alabama. The
party was very informal, the young
ladies receiving their guests on the
beautiful lawn. They were assisted]
by Mr. and Mrs. Robert L. Andersoin
Both Miss Anderson and Mrs.Camp
were very attractive in white and-
the distinguished looking honoree
was lovely in soft white silk over
taffeta.
Chairs, benches and awnings were:!
arranged about on the spacious lawn'
and under the beautiful trees and
here the guests were seated and en-'
joyed the moonlight and social com-
mingling for a half hour or so, when
progressive whist was played. The-
seven tables had been placed on the
veranda, where this exciting and in-
teresting game was played for an
hour and a half. The contest was
spirited and friendly,- everybody en-
joying themselves immensely. Mr.
Duval and Miss Anderson kept the
scores. At the close of the games it
was found that Mr. Tom Harris and
Miss Sara Harris had made the larg-
est scores and they were awarded
the lovely prizes-the former a stick
pin set with pearls and the latter a
set of gold cuff pins.
Refreshments were served in the
yard after which Miss Camp, Miss
Draper and Miss Anderson sang sev-
eral songs, which added greatly to
the pleasure of the evening.

three charming visitors, who "leave
soon for their homes. These young
ladies, who were Miss Edna Delpl, of
German Valley, N. J., Miss Carrie
Williams, of Branford, and Miss Car-
rie Draper, of Anniston, Ala., have
made many friends while in Ocala
and have been greatly admired. tTn-
fortunately, at the last minute, Miss
Draper and her hostess, Miss Mary
Anderson, were unable to be present.
There were fourteen young ladies
at Mrs. Hocker's and they spent one
of the most pleasant afternoons im-
aginable. Each girl was requested to
bring her thimble, and everybody
was guessing what they would do.
It proved that they were to do some
"fancy work." Everyone was given
a piece of denim, some white and
some blue, needle and thread, andre-
quested to write their names thereon
and outline them in white and blue.
When all were finished the different
shaped pieces were put together and
formed the top of a most attractive
sofa pillow in a star design. The
back of the pillow was of the blue
denim with "Ocala" and the date
outlined on it, and it was to be put
together with a white and blue cord.
This lovely souvenir was drawn for
by the two guests of honor, liss Wil-
liamsn nd Miss De(I, and was won
by the former, and she prizes the pil-
low very highly.
Mrs. Hocker is one of our most
popular young matrons, and her'
party was exceedingly delightful.

award the prizes to Miss Violet Har-

scribed their wedding trip to the Buf-

The prizes were a silver hat brush
and a fountain pen and in presenting
them Mr. Burford made a few happy
remarks in his usual pleasing style
which always seem to come to him so
easily and so unaffectedly.
We were especially requested to
publish the letter that won the prize,

make room for the prize letter telling
of the wedding journey to Buffalo:

Mr. Charles T. Brian Gives Pidnic
A trip on romantic Silver Springs
is always a delight and is replete with
pleasant memories. Wednesday Mr.
Charles T. Brian, of Houston, Texas,
a former Ocala boy, gave a number
of his friends quite a pleasant and
-memorable picnic at. these indescrib--
ably lovely springs. This affair was
arranged particularly in honor of
Miss Mary Wartnmann, of Citra. Thle
other members of the party were
Misses Meta Jewett, Louise Scott,,
Sue Bal'co, Emily Ford, Hattie Dye,
Ethel Robinson, Sara and Violet Har-
ris, Messrs. Stephen Jewett, Guy Ze-
wadski, M. J. Roess, G. H. Ford, J.
H. Taylor, 0. B. Howse, Harvey
Clark and W. H. Powers.
The party drove down in teams.
about half-past four o'clock in the
afternoon and remained at the springs
until after twelve o'clock. After
going down the run a few miles the
crowd started to return. They were
in two boats, a launch, to which was
towed a large row boat. Shortly
after turning back the propeller
broke, so those in the rear boat had
to row up to the landing and send
back for the others. Aside from this
slight inconvenience the trip was a
great one. Three colored men with
stringed instruments fu nished music,
which with conversation, singing and
a picnic supper helped to pass the
time away most pleasantly and agree-
ably.
The popular host on this occasion
left yesterday for Key West and from
thence lie goes to New York ef re
returning home.

ItONOIl OF MISS


Mrs. Clarence Camp Entertains Beau-
tifully for Her on Friday.
Miss Daisy Nurney, of Suffolk, Va.,
who is the attractive guest of her
sister, Mrs. Jack Camp, was given a
very charming party yesterday by
Mr4Clarence Camp.
Jt_ one o'clock Mrs. Camp gave a
Luncheon, her guests being
Miss Nurney, Mrs. R. L. Anderson,
Mrs. Jack Camp, Mrs. Clifton Camp,
Misses Emily Ford, Sue Barco, Sara
and Violet Harris.
The table was lovely in its appoint-
ments of yellow. The exquisite
drawn work table cover was over
yellow silk and in the center of the
table was a large bouquet of yellow
daisies. The place cards were hand-
painted daisies and the luncheon
served was perfectly delicious.
Later in the afternoon the young
ladies were joined by Messrs. J. H.
Taylor, 0. B. Howse, W. H. Powers,
M. J. Roess and C. G. Cantrell and
the afternoon was devoted to playing
tennis and in other pleasant ways.
Just at dusk a very delightful supper
was served picnic style under the
trees on the lawn, and was thorough-
ly enjoyed.
The party was continued until
nearly midnight.
After supper the form of amuse-
ment was a progressive proposal
party. Each of the gentlemen pro-
posed to each girl, and some of the
declarations of love were most amus-
ing, while others sounded mightily
like the real thing. If the man was
accepted the young lady presented
him a heart, butIif he were so unfor-
tunate as to be turned down, he was
given the "mitten," and the gentle-
men, itf they were satisfied with the
answers they received, gave to "his
fair lady" a tiny gilt arrow.
Messrs. Cantrell and Roess tied for
the gentleman's prize and upon the
cut the former was fortunate in win-
ning a beautiful silver heart pin. Miss
Nurney and Miss Harris tied for the
ladies' prize, a silver arrow hat pin,
which was won by Miss Nurney.


Mr. Howse got-the gentleman's booby,
a pair of mittens,and '.liss Ford secur-
ed the ladies' booby prize, a neat little
tablet with pencil attached, bearing
the inscription, "if you can't talk,
write."
This triple party for one of
the most charming girls who visits
Ocala, given by one of our most uni-
versally loved young matrons, was
one of the pleasantest social affairs
that has ever been given in Ocala.

and s. Jack Cam were the
host and hostess of a salmagundid"
party on Friday evening in honor of
their lovely sister, Miss Daisy Nur-
ney, of Suffolk, Va. They, were as-
assisted by Mr. and Mrs. Clifton
Camp and this party was decidedly a
novel and delightful one. There were
five tables in the parlor, library and
on the veranda. At the head table
the couples tested their skill at stick-
peanuts; at the second table they
were required to sew on buttons as
rapidly as possible; at the third table
the childhood of the contestants was
vividly recalled by tee cutting out of
pretty paper dolls; at at the fourth
table from the word "salmagundi" as
many other words as possible had to
be made, and at the foot table a
need threading contest was most
excipig. These diversions; were
very entertaining and were lots of
fun.
i r. H. M. Taylor proved himself
the most skillful contestant among
te gentlemen and he was awarded
with a very attractive ash tray. The
honors among the ladies were even
between Miss Edith Piatt and Miss
Sara Harris. The prize, a beautiful
picture of cunning little Chinese
maids and boys, was cut for by these
two and was won by Miss Harris.
In the hall punch was served and
after the games were over other re-
freshments were enjoyed.
Mr. and' .Mrs. Camp's guests on
Friday evening were Misses Daisy
Nurney, 2Meta Jewett, Emily Ford,
Ethel Robinson, Edith Piatt, Sara
and Violet Harris; Messrs. Stephepi
Jewett, T. H. Harris, G. H. Ford, O.

The young ladies present spent a very

child we remember her pretty bright

She grew into beautiful womanhood
here and was married to Mr. Robert

She was m.et at the chancel by the
groom and his best man, Mr. Carlos

The entire church was beautifully
decorated with bamboo and myrtle.
In front of the chancel were four
white columns surmounted by large
white globe lights. On either side of
the chancel at the foot of the columns
were large white jardeniers filled
with beautiful white chrysanthemums.
The pulpit was a mass of beautiful
ferns. Suspended from the arch di-

cluster of small whibe electric lights
that brought out the effective scheme
of white and green.

The little flower girls looked dainty
and sweet in their little frocks of
blue mull.
After the ceremony the attendants
were entertained at a reception at
the home of Mr. Helvenston.
The decorations throughout the
beautiful home were in whi e and

The bride and groom stood i\n the
large box window of the drawing

p quietly stole the pleasures of the
appy event entirely away from, not
nly their large circle of friends and
admirers, but their immediate fami-
lies as well.
As the golden October sunset was
flashing its last bright rays of a beau-

while Mr. Harris himself was pleas-
antly passing the hour at his life-long
cherished profession, giving the
printers a helping hand, Rev. L.. W.

and impressive ceremony that made
Dr. Powers and Miss Harris husband!
and wife.
Just why these two popular young'

From the Ocala Evening Star.
One of the greatest as well as the
happiest surprises that tTmx young so-
ciety people have sprung upon the
public was the quiet we ng yester-
day afternoon of Dr. Willia Herbert
Powers and Miss, Violet Harris, which
was, for some time to come, all un-
expected, and came as an overwhelm-
ing surprise to their hosts of friends.
Indeed, the young people themselves
did not know in tlI morning that they
would be husband and wife before the
sun, should set. Dr. Powers called at
the home of his fiance in the after-.
noon and lass THarris dressed herself
in a pretty .white street costume and
the young. couple went down town
.for a walk. They strolled about, town
kfor some time and mingled with their
friendss: Dr. Powers had secured a
riarriage license from Judge Bell and
when the autun'in sun was just pass-
ing below ,thee.,t.e. tops they walked
infT l5'Di7Faarns office and asked him
to find and bring in Rev. L. W. Moore,
the Methodi4;,pastor, which Dr. Izlar
soon did an& ked him to come over
to his. office at once and marry a cou-
.ple ~~oore accompanied him, ex-
a, o find a stammering country
swainrand a giggling lass, but was al-
most shocked out of his wedding dig-
nity to find these happy, but most
calm and unexcited young people, who
asked him to marry them, which wasl
quickly done, with no witness except.
Dr. Powers' fellow practitioner and
40t door neighbor, Dr. A. L. Izlar.
Dr. and Mrs. Powers then walked. to;
the bride's home and told Mrs. Har6i4
that they were married, and the fond

Special, to the Ocala Banner:
The UnitedDaughters of the Con-

held their annual convention in Bow-
ling Green thpast week. Mrs. Basil
Duke, who hA been the much belov-
ed president f the Kentucky Daugh-
ters for the ptt two years, (as long
as one person: can remain in office),
presided over, the convention. She
is a stately an d exceedingly charming
woman and presided over the meet-
ing with mi~9h dignity and grace.
Nor were the other state officers in
any way lacking in ihese necessary
qualities.

er very graci and pleasant Ken-

tary of the Dau hters in this state.
The chapteiin'this city is known
as the Albert'Sidney Jnhnson chap-
ter, and is, of,course, the largest in
the state. They sent twenty-one


delegates to the convention, among
the number being our hostess. The
chapter treated us with much consid-
eration snd allowed us the great
privilege of attending the convention
as their guests, and we were enter-
tained at a very delightful boarding.
house at Bowling Green.
Bowling Green is a very pretty
town of 12,000 inhabitants. The
country is beautiful and rolling and
the homes there are lovely. The peo-
ple there are cordial in their manners
and Kentucky hospitality is splendidly'
demonstrated by her delighiful men
and women. JD.uring the convention
the doors of ciity were opened
wide to the gues everyone had
a royal time. There 'as a reception-
musicale and several smaller affairs
for the visitors, iven by the Bowlinae


Green chapter. At The annual el1c-
tion of officers at this meeting Mrs.
McKenny, of Paducah, was elected
state president for the next two
years. I N -.
Together with our host and hostess
we spent yesterday. at Mammoth
Cave, one of .the most wonderful
wonder'ofh-ire TTg-t- -to 'the
cave one goes from Glascow Ju'nc-
tion (a distance of ten mi.es) on a
"dummy," which looks slightly the
worse for wear and tear. At the
cave is a quaint old rambling hotel
set on a slight elevation. The hotel
has b-en built for many years.and has
entertained some very distinguished
|nd renowned visitors in it 47 It
fis in beautifully with Fd
makes one feel greatly at home. It
is not at all imposing like our mod-
ern hotels, but is more like a big, old-:
failoned country home.
A oon as we arrived we donned
our cave suits, and with an expert
guide and several other people that
had preceded us, started out on a
tour of the cave.
The dome just beyond the entrance
of the cave is wonderful and im-
mense. To those that have visited
this wonderful place it would be
foolish" fertnevto try. -to tell them
about it, and to those that have nev-
er made the trip it would be absurd,
as I could not begin to give them any
idea of the weirdness, the wonder-
fulness and the awfulness of it all.
We went firso over what is known as.
the long route, walking a distance of
nearly eighteen miles, making their
trip in nine and a half hours. Shortly'
after we started we discovered that-
we had two bridal couples in the.
party one a very young couple,
bright, witty and attractive, and
they certainly made things lively for
us. The other couple were aged
about 40 and 45 years, modest, timid
and demure, and added their share
towards keeping up our spirits when
we were almost fagged out.
Just at first I think one feels dis-
appointed in the cave, as from study-


ing the pictures in our geography
when we were children we rather ex-A
pect to see the stalactites and stal-.
agmites glittering and sparkling withini
diamonds, but when this first pang of'
disappointment wears off one is
frightened and awed at the immensi-
ty, the grandeur and the awfulness
of it all. .

trance. Mdst of the route back ,you
retrace your steps, with a boat. trip
on the Echo and Styx rivers or not,
just. as one chooses, and just before
reaching the end comes the climax
of the journey-winding through the
"Corkscrew." After getting out one
certainly feels like unto a corkscrew,
and one geixtleman" very feelingly re-
marked that he wished that route
had never been discovered; but we
would not have misse I that part of
this famous trip for any amount.
The "short route" is only seven
miles, but in it are some of the really
most beautiful parts of the cave, but
after a tramp over the long route it
is almost impossible to keep up one's
spirits to take this little short walk.
The Mammoth Cave is truly won-'
derful, and unless one goes through
it themselves it is impossible to im-
agine what it is like.

OUR L1 7

M IN SA t LOUIS.

Visits the inheuser-susbh Brewery
and the Beautiful Botanical Gar-
dens.

LOUSVILLE, KY., Nov. 18, 1905. '
Special Correspondence Ocala Banner.
With a party of friends the local
editor, spent several days this week at
St. Louis. A wreck ahead caused us
to spend several hours at a little town
in southern Indiana. It was an in-
-tensely disagreeable little village and
naturally gave us a most unpleasant
impression of that section of Indiana.
On our return trip we were in a bet-
ter frame of mind and things in
that same country looked entirely
different to us. It proves the truth of
the adage that things appear accord-
ing to the glasses through which they
are seen. The view point has much to
do in shaping one's opinions.
Saint Louis is a big city, but one
certainly misses the great exposition.
The crowds look small by comparison
to the swarms of people one saw in
every nook and cranny of the city
last year. Several of the Pike attrac-
tions were running during the sum-
mer months, but now hardly a vestige
of the fair remains.
This fact, however, gives one all
the more time to see the city itqel
and the two days that we were t ,e-
were spent in a delightfully pleasant
manner.
Everybody has, of course, heard of
the Anheuser-Busch brewer, arid at
trip through the pro 6his,
company is alone al4nt *'&i
visit to this western met .i:i .
told that when an Americ tpet&
ing of the gigantic Worls Fair "to
Emperor William the Empyrnyrasked
this question: "Where is At Louis,
anyway?" and that the gentleman.
feelingly and forcefully replied: "It
is right next to the Anheuser-Busch
brewery." While this, of course, is a


fiction is doesn't miss the mark a great
way.
One is almost appalled at the im-
mensity of the brewery. In fact, it
is in itself a city. It covers one hun-
dredc and twenty-tive acres ofaground,
equal to sixty city blocks, and em-
ploys five thousand people. There is
the brewhouse, bottling works, malt-
houses, ice and refrigerati' g plants,
printing establishment, steam ~1cd
electric power plants, stock hogss,
storage elevators, etc. The i pany
operates four of the largest switch
engines ever built and two thottsand
of the most modern refrigeratQr cars.
The sale of beer for 1903 amounted to
1,201,762 barrels.
The streets- aft.Mi- buildings are
beautifully kept and regul uides
rep em loyed to pilot th rs
rough e w
arvelous to wat -it


which every employer worked. Not,
a minute was lost and each one seem-
ed intent on accomplishing more than
the one next to him. There was no
cigarette nor pipe smoking, no loit-
ering and not a minute was lost. ItI
was ever a rush and a hurry but no.
disorder nor confusion followed. Thi
most perfect system prevails in ever'
department and speeds along as i
worked automatically.


Mr. Busch has his residence near
the brewery on Busch court. We
were shown through his private sta-
bles which was in itself a treat.
At the conclusion of the trip
through the brewery everyone is al-
lowed to drink as much of the fresh
beer as they choose.
Another interesting feature of Saint
Louis is Shaw's Botanical gardens.
These are, perhaps, the largest and
most complete gardens in the United
States and perhaps equal to anything
n Honolulu or Japan. They were.
the property of Mr. Henry Shaw, one
of that city's wealthy citizens and
distinguished philanthropists. At his
death he bequeathed these gardens
to Saint Louis and a large amount for
the maintenance of the same. Al-
most every flower, fern, palm and
plant that can be found in any coun-
try is grown in these gardens and are
most beautiful and luxuriant. The
green house that is especially devoted
to the cultivation of air plants is par-
ticularly interesting. Every variety
of the orchid is shown and many of.
Them were in bloom and were very,

The recollections of these beautiful,

were so fortunate as to be present.
Saint Louis has its large depart-
ment stores, palatial hotels, hand-
some 'clubs, fine resident es, swell
-ats and comfortable apartment

t c., very much like any other big
city. It is growing very rapidly and

in one's veins courses more quickly
and tingles with delight and joy.
It all comes from having a popula-

us hope that in time the population of
the south will become as dense as the'
population of the north and west and
then we shall have the same splen-
dors, beauties, attractions, and activ-

I am reminded that I have said
nothing of beautiful Louisville and
her hospitable people. I shall make
them the subject of a separate letter.
I shall next visit Atlanta, Jackson-

are sponsors for visiting brigades and

looked exceedingly attractive, well lighted
with a glowing fire on th'e wide hearth
and the daintily appointed tea table near.

CONFEDERATE REUNION


The -Veterans, Daughters and Spon-
sors All Have Big Time in Jack-
sonville. The Meeting a
Grand Success.
The fifteenth annual reunion of the
United Confederate Veterans held in
Jacksonville on December the thir-
teenth and fourteenth was a most de-
lightful and splendid one in every res-
pect-with the exception of the bad
weather the last day. The reunion
was very largely attended and the vet-
erans were very enthusiastic over the,
meeting. Ocala and Marion county
were well represented-
The meetings were held in the
Board of Trade rooms, which were
very attractively and artistically dec-,
orated for this happy time.
Commander Ballatine and Col. F.
Robertson presided at tje session
and Bishop Weed, th-e regfiental'i
chaplain opened the meeting with a '
beautiful prayer.
Beautiful addresses of welcomeS were.
read by Mayor Nolan and Maj. Wil-
liams, commander of the R. E. Lee,
camp, which were ably responded to
by Gen. Jewell, of Orlando.
The annual address was made by
Hon. W. L. Palmer, of Orlando, and
a very brilliant and splendid speech
it was.
The reception given to the veterans
by the Martha Reid chapter,U. D. C.,
was the supreme event of the reun-
ion. eA beautiful musical program wasi
given and all the pent-up enthusiasm
of the brave old soldiers of the South
was given free rein. All the emotions
and feelings engendered by the nem-
ory of the stirring scenes of. forty
years ago swept in unrestrained tu-
mult through the audience time after
time; and again and again the gray-
clad heroes leaped to their feet, cheer-
ing wildly, waving hats and canes in
mad abandon, and sounding again and
again the famous "Confederate yell."
The scene was an affecting one. The
old soldiers, many of them bent and
feeble with age were present and old
friendships were renewed, old memor-
ies were revived, and fancy again
painted the scenes first enacted in the
flickering light of campfires, or in the
.glare and tumult of the fray.
Again and again during the evening
Dixie was called for and the enthu-
siasm was intense. Later on in the
evening a delicious supper was served
to tile veterans and visitors.
As has already been announced in
these columns. Ex-Governor Francis
P. Fleming of Jacksonville was unan-
imously elected general commander of
the "FtoridTa veterans and this i".cer
tainly an honor worthily bestowed.
Notes.
The sponsors and' maids-of-honor
were very rey'ally, entertained during
the reunion and the various festiv-


cities planned for them were very
charm ing.
On Wednesday afternoon they were
the guests of honor at a tea and dance
at the country club given by the
Jacksonville sponsors and maids and,
on Thursday morning Mr. and Mrs.
C. B. Rogers tendered them a water'
party on the launch Regina. The ten
mile trip down the St. John's- river
was very greatly enjoyed and was a
lovely treat to the young, ladies.
On Thursday evening a grand ball
was given the sponsors and maids at
the armory and it was a very mag-
nificent climax to a very memorable
occasion.
On account of the very disagreeable
weather the parade planned for
Thursday afternoon was called off,
which was a great disappointment.


station, of a medal to Mr. F.
monger, of Jacksonville, the youngest

presentation speech was made by Mi4
Olive Munnedyn. '.
A 'Tetter was received during the
reunion announcing the critical i ne5
of Mrs. J. J. Dickison, and consequent-e
ly her inability to attend the reunion.
A very sad occurrence of the re-
union was the sudden death on Thurs'
day night of Captain J. J. Thompson,
of Gainesville at the home of Gover-
nor Fleming." He was attacked with
heart failure, and died quite sudden-
ly. The deceased was a brothel 'of
the 'late Senator J. Naylor Thompson;
of Nassau county and also of Louis
Thompson of Lake City.

course lun~eeon by o teachers and at five o'clock in the eve-
ning a wedding supper was served at
the college.
The Banner joins the many friends
of this young couple in wishing them
a very happy married life.


FLORIDA NEWSPAPER MEN.

"Not I the Editing Business for Their
Health"-Appreciated Compliments
From Pen of Mr. Chas. E. Jones.
Under the caption of "Florida's
Gallant Army of Newspaper Men--
An Unrelentless Enemy to all Things
That are Bad," Mr. Charles E. Jones
pays a beautiful tribute to the Flori-
da editors in last Sunday's Jackson-
ville Metropolis. The article in ques-
tion covers over half a page of that
excellent paper and is too lengthy
for reproduction in its entirety here.
He says;
Ninety per cent of the people some
time or other make a request of the
newspaper man, and it is usually
granted. The suppression of some


unfortunate affair or the recording of
somo social e-vent or business matter
is asked. The editor is the most
obliging man in any community, and
in some towns the least appreciated.
He can do some fellow a hundred
favors, but if the paper, in a cam-
paign, espouses some cause opposite,
then these fellows are the first to
censure.
The individual who has escaped dis-
grace because the editor did not pub-
lish some dirty work or court record
in which the individual was involved
will sometimes be the first to charge
the editor with graft, and declare
that his political policy is for "reve-
nue only."
I believe that no state in the union
can show as few gyafters among the
newspoaer fraternity as Flari an T


p e r io 'a u ur M w lA Hi Bi t v wL t a v u t i a v -
have watched the movements o
others and if Florida has anything ii
its citizenship to be proud of it is the
talented, tireless, progressive army of
newspaper men. To them more than
to any other source is due the state's
marvelous prosperity.
Editors, like preachers in this day,
are not in the editing business for
their health. Primarly they are in a
noble work to make an honest living,
but Florida editors realize that to'
achieve the best results they rhust'
deal fairly with the people and pub-
lish the news regardless of partisan
prejudices, and advocate that which
is good.1
The country editor at best has a
hard time of it. He has much work
to do and besides recording the act-
ualities and commenting upon cur-
rent events, he must also run'the bus-
iness end of the "shebang." The
daily newspapers with a greater field
and greater opportunities, needs
more men knd more departments.
The country editor has everything to
do, If the printer gets sick, he goes
to the case; if the baby has measels
or whooping cough then he is com-
pelled to be nurselin addition to his
other duties.
My object in writing this article,
however, is not to tell of the duties
and trials of newspaper men, but to
tell of the men whose worked speak
volumes for them--men who are de-
serving of lasting praise, and who
are most creditable to the state. I
can: only handle a few newspaper
men in this article. Others deserv-
ing will be told of at a future time'

Dear old Frank Harris, the so-call-
ed Nester of the Florida Press, in fact
"The Ocala Editor." Who does not
love Frank Harris? He is a man of,
fty character, and his battles for
progress are simply a portion of the
history of Florida. He loves his home
town and county, and if his progres-
Ssive work was properly recorded it


would take many pages of an ordina-
ry newspaper. Frank Harris is liter-
al, conservative and conducts a clean
bright publication. The "Brick City"
owes much to the Banner and to its
editor whose versatile pen has been
used thousands of times in singing
the praises of Ocala and its people.


Miss Sara Harris is associated with
her father on the Banner. She is not
only a charming young woman, but
she has the newspaper instinct. She
handles the city and social news of
Ocala in an able manner, and the
father is justly proud of her.


Dinner to Mr. and Mrs Helvenston.
The dinner Friday evening at which
Mr. and Mrs. Edward T. Helvenston
were the honor guests, and Mr. and
Mrs. S. T. Sistrunk the host and
hostess, was one of the, most elabor-
ate and perfect in every detail ever
given in Ocala.

Sthe house was' empty.
The bridal party, relatives and inti-
mate friends were driven immediately
to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Weath-
ers, where an informal reception was
held.
In the parlor Mr. and Mrs. B. A.
Weathers and Mr. and -Mrs. I. V. Ste-
vens received the guests. This room
was charmingly arranged with a pro-
fusion of white oleanders and palms,
the color scheme of green and white
being used all over the house, as well
as the-church.
In the dining room the table was 'ex-
ceedingly attractive. In the center
was a pyramid cake,, a most delicious
concoction made by the bride herself.
'Cut glass and silver dishes, filled with;
salad, wafers, olives, green and white
mints, and candles shaded with white
and green, and sprays of asparagus

from the latter the punch was served.
The supper was served buffet style,
the bridesmaids serving the salad, etc.
The ices were frozen in green and
white, and with them was served de-


to the celebration of the golden wed-
ding anniversary of the groom's pa-
rents, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Stevens.
Mr. and 'Mrs. Stevens were present
as well as a number of other relatives.
The aged grandmother of the bride,
Mrs. Neal Ferguson, of Oldtown, had
made every preparation to be present
at this happy time, but owing to ill-
ness was obliged to deprive her grand-
daughter of her presence, which fact
was a matter of very deep regret to
the entire family.


PLEASANT MORNING AT BRIDGE

Small bridge parties are now quite'
the fad in Ocala, and seem now to be
the most popular form of entertaining
one's friends.
Bridge is a most fascinating game
and is rapidly taking the place ofl
whist among our card players.
Tuesday morning an enjoyable two;
hours was spent with Miss Esther
Weathers by eight bridge players.
The players at the two tables includ-
ed Miss Weathers and her house
guests, Misses Mabel and Edith Tay-.1
lor of Glendale, Ohio, Mrs. Ralph' T.
Birdsey of Macon, Miss Ethel Robin-
son, Miss Valeta Potter, Mrs. C. H.
Lloyd and Mrs. W. H. Powers.
At eleven o'clock a lovely fruit sal-
ad, served in orange shells and eaten
with toasted milk biscuit, was enjoy-
ed by the players, after which the
game was continued until noon.
Miss Potter and Mrs. Powers won
the pretty little favors of the morning.

I Summer visitors are still coming in
and it is almost impossible to accom-
:modate the crowds. The weather for
some days past has been Excessively
hot, but the nights continue to be de-
lightfully cool. There has been no
rain here for about ten days, hence
the heat and dust.
Meeting the afternoon trains con-
tinues to be the greatest excitement
of the day, and every afternoon there
re such crowds at the station that it

hen one is there to meet friends it
is easier to miss them than it is in

beautiful girls here, and in the after-
noons, arrayed in their light, airy
frocks, pretty ribbons and attractively

scopic pictures that is a pleasure to
f witness.
They say that Saluda has more than
he usual number of young men, al-
though, we must say that the girls far
outnumber the men, still there are
.enough here to make things lively
for the young people, and they have
a gay and happy time.

THE "OCALA COLONY" AT -

SALUDA, NORTH CAROLINA



A Round of Gaities. Picnicing on the Mountains.Seeing the

"Horse Show"aIn the Dance's Merry Whirl.

Personal Notes.


Saluda, N. C., Aug. 20, 1908.
To the, Ocala Banner:
With the additional Ocala crowd at
Saluda the past week has been quite
a1 lively one-particularly among the
young people.
On Thursday evening the Ocala
young people attended the Skyuka,
dance at the Saluda hall, and enjoyed
a very delightful evening. While the
dances are not conducted here as
they are in Ocala, still they are very
enjoyable, and the dance hall is a
very splendid one.
Yesterday afternoon ,there was a
silver tea at the new library hall for
the benefit of the library, which is the
pride of Saluda. And they have a
right to be proud of it as it is a very
worthy institution, and is a perfect
boon to the summer visitors. It is a
meeting place for all and is generally
crowded, both in the mornings and
evenings.
Yesterday morning-quite a crowd of
the young people from this neighbor-
hood walked to Melrose (three miles
down Saluda mountain) and came
back on the noon train. They had the
pleasure of meeting on the train Mr.
and Mrs. John H. Taylor, Mrs. Sally
Bell Croom and little son of Ocala,
and Mr. Will Ross of Jacksonville. Mr.
and Mrs. Tavlori were en route to

In our party were Misses Christine
Richards of Gainesville, Louise Har-

Haywood of Raleigh, N. C., and
Messrs. Harvey Clark and Frank Har-
ris of Ocala, and Frank Prettyman
and Cannon Prettyman of Marion,
S. C., chaperoned by Dr. and Mrs.
W. H. Powers of Ocala. They had a
royal good time and fell thoroughly
in love with Hendersonville, and were
much delighted with the beautiful
horses exhibited. 1
Mr. and Mrs. R. R. Carroll and
daughter and Mrs. Carroll's sister,
Mrs. Nona Ramsauer, also attended
the horse show at Hendersonville this
afternoon, and Mr. Carroll will no
doubt write his impression of the
same to the Star.
Quite a number of the young folks
from here are attending a dance at
Flat Rock tonight. Flat Rock is be-
tween Saluda and Hendersonville, and
is quite a popular resort.
Mr. Tom Harris, who has been
spending a week at Saluda, leaves
Saturday morning for Asheville, and
will leave from there Saturday night,
and expects to reach Ocala Monday
afternoon. Mr. Frank Harris, Jr., will
also spend Saturday at Asheville, re-
turning to Saluda Sunday afternoon.
Capt. T. H. Johnson of Ocala, whose.
family are summering at Henderson-
ville, spends every day at Saluda,
coming down in the mornings and re-
turning to Hendersonville at night.
He is here buying apples, potatoes
and other western North Carolinn
crops, which he is very busily engag-
ed in shipping to the E.lorida mar:
kets.
Tomorrow (Friday) quite a part.
from this neighborhood will go down
,to Tryon on the S:30 o'clock train, re-
turning on the 7 o'clock evening train.
They will carry lunch and enjoy the
day picnicking on Tryon imoiotain.
In the party will be Mrs. Frank P r-

The northbound Santa Fe Wednes-
ay at noon brought a trainload of
people, a majority of whom were
through passengers, and on account
of high water were forced to remain
over here until thiis morning.
The understood that when they
left Fort Worth they would be able:
to go right through, but on account of:
;the Santa Fe line north being out of'
commission that road was not able to
Detour trains over the Rock Island as'
had been intended, owing to a washout
near Randolph, and ten inches of wa-
ter was running over the tracks.
The Santa Fe provided accommoda-
tions for forty-one passengers at the!
Whittington until the train could be
otten through to take thlm on tot
heir destination at points north. In
he party were several families from
?California, German emigrants, butf
thoroughly able to speak our language
and care for themselves. The others
were mostly southern people en route
to the northern summer resorts.
It is believed that by today trains
may be detoured over the Rick Island
if the Santa Fe north is not ready for
passenger business.-Ardmore (Okla-

Mr. T. H. Haris of this city is one
of the crowd of passengers rainbound
at Ardmore. They have been com-
pelled to remain there several days
.and he says that the rains and winds
have been terrific-almost enough to
blow away 4he town.

4OCALA COLONY" AT SALUDA



Our Local Editor Tells of the Terrible Floods and Great

Railroad Wreck .0 Personal Mention..


Saluda, N. C., Aug. 28 ,1908.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
The "Ocala colony" at Saluda had
plenty to interest and keep them busy
yesterday. As has been announced
in the press dispatches, there was a
terrible wreck o0e mile and a quar-
ter above Saludai night before last.
The wrecked train was a freight, and
the engineer was killed and the fire-
man severely injured. All day yes-
Sterday people from Saluda visited the
'scene' of the wreck, and it is estimat-
ed that fully one thousand people
walked out to see the demolished
train.
The accident was due to the recent
heavyy rains and the undermining of
the fill. It is said that when the en-
gine ran onto the embankment the
whole thing gave way, sending the
train to the bottomo. The engine and
[five cars are now lying 250 feet below
the track, and almost entirely covered
with mud and stone.
S -wo of the cars are smashed into
'splinters, and dozens of trimmed hats
and hundreds of boxes of breakfast
food and other freight are strewn all


The wreck and other washouts be-
tween Saluda and Columbia and Sa-
luda and Atlanta has delayed traffic'
and the mails considerably. It has
been several days since we have been
able to get the mail from the south.
That the train which went through
the fill was a freight instead of a pas-
senger was due to the fact that the.
passenger was running one hour late.
Had the passenger train been run-
ning on timd it would have preceded
the freight across the fill and in all
probability would have been wrecked,
and a frightful loss of life would have'
been the result.
The entire state, as well as South
Carolina and Georgia have been
greatly damaged by the floods this
week. The crops have suffered con-;
siderably. All of the rivers are very
high, and some have already over-
flowed their banks.
The rains have now ceased, and the-
weather is exceedingly cool today; in,
fact fires are almost necessary.
Messrs. R. R. Carroll, Harvey Clark'
and Frank Harris,, Jr., after spending,
two weeks here, will leave on Mon-

was told nothing about it until in the
afternoon, and was not then told
whom the guests were to be, so she
derived much pleasure in guessing
who would probably be the next ar-
rival.
Miss McCreery is one of the most
thoroughly liked young ladies in
Ocala, and the special friends invited
by Miss Jewett to be with her on the
Evening of her birthday were indeed
Fortunate.
Until eleven o'clock 'the guests en-
joyed a number of games of progres-
sive whist and everybody was espe-
cially pleased that the guest of honor
should have won the prize, which
,was a beautifully bound copy of
"American Love Stories." Mr. Work-
man won the gentleman's prize, a
comic volume, entitled, "Knocks."
Miss Jewett's guests were Miss Sa-

On the card tables were exceeding-
ly delightful home-made candies,
which were so delicious that every
piece was eaten. Chicken salad, ol-
ives and crackers were served on the
same tables.
After this course Miss Jewett in-

:Miss Mamie Taylor was the last of
the club hostesses to entertain the:
Young Ladies' Card Club, and the af-
ternoon with her on Saturday was one'
of unusual pleasure.
A heavy rain just before the hour
for the party made the afternoon a'
delightfully cool one, and a refreshing
breeze blew all the afternoon, making
the playing exceedingly pleasant.
There were five 'tables in the two
big front rooms of this lovely old
home and the twenty young ladies en-
joyed a merry game of progressive
whist. Miss Esther Weathers and
Mrs. E. T. Helvenston made the high-
est scores and they were each given a
perfectly lovely little pink silk pin
cushion, with the daintiest of em-
broidered linen covers-trophies that
were very much admired.
During the afternoon the hostess,
assisted by her sister, Miss Margaret
Taylor and Mrs. Scott and Mrs. New-
som, served iced grape juice and later
pineapple cream, cake and salted al-
monds.

Big Fire
It had been nuuiL following tle
Big Fire in 1883 and in kaleido-
scopic rapidity my mind flashes
back to the 3Wies oft told of that
event Before Me today iies a copy
of The Ocala Banner (Papa's pa-
per), now yellow and crumbling
with age, for it bears the date
December 1, 1883, an important
date for me, as I was just three
days old on that fateful Thanks-
giving day when fire so nearly
destroyed Ocaia.
My mother and I were moved
from house to house, each house in
'turn burning and then we were
put on. a train and moved to Citra
sne twenty miles away. 3Vy j

I am, but she :aidWys' used to say,
whenever the Big Fire was mention-
ed, that she remembered it (she
doesn't like. this mentioned now).
This 1883 copy of the Banner
contains much that is the history
of Ocala. According to its files, it
is The Fire Edition, published
three days after the catastrophe.
Papa, not wishing to miss a single
issue, had hurried to Palatka,
about 60 miles away, and there got
out the paper for that week. His
6s '--was complete, but in prideful
words he wrote, "We were just
placing the Banner where we in-
tended it, a paper unexcelled in the
state" and he added, '"The Ban-
ner will rebuild." The Banner was
then in its 18th year.
The Fire Edition vividly describes
the Big Fire and what a fire it
must have been! An estimated loss
of $400,000! Five blocks laid in
ashes, including the Ocala House,
the Palace Hotel, ten stores, the
Banner office, the editor's home


and many other homes and many
buildings and homes damaged,
among them the home of Mrs.
Whitfield (Sara Whitfiald Win-
ston's mother).
Before me is another old and
crumbling issue of the Banner. It
is dated 1885, and in this issue
there is a Rheinauer and Bros. ad,
in itself interesting because of its
clever style and because it adver-
tises dress Goods-not dresses. I
doubt if ready-made dresses had
even been imagined. That ad also
tells quite a story, for Rheinauer's
continues to be one of
Ocala's principal stores, but time
marches on and "Mr. Ben" is the

would be on meeting. When they
met, they shook hands and ad-
dressed each other as "Mr. Alex'
and "Mr. Frank" and there ap-
peared to be a constraint of em-
barrassment. As the visit length-
,ened into weeks, the brothers fount
much in common and a feeling 'o.,
brotherly love arose and became so
strong that when the day of part-
ing arrived, Papa suffered a com-
plete breakdown and took to hi

sobs, begged and pleaded, "Oh.

For Governor
In the same year that the Ban-
ner celebrated its 50th anniversary
Papa was favorably mentioned as
a candidate for Governor of Flor-
ida and his open letter of thanks
and his refusal to consider the
suggestion received many beauti-
Iful comments. In refusing he
wrote: "Ripened grain is fit only
to be garnered. There is nothing
more beautiful than honorable old
age. Its place, however, is in the
restful shade in summer and in
a snug place by the hearthstone in
winter. The promotion of colossal
enterprises and the affairs of state
and nation must be committed to
the hands of the young and amoi-
tious, to those who possess the fire,
vigor,, ginger and impetuosity of
youth, and not to those whose
march, like the shadows of even-
ing, are lengthening.
"'Nature makes no mistakes and if
it has written one thing plainer
than another it is that old age
and office are not like Daniel


Webster's sentiment of Liberty and
Union, now and forever one and
inseparable. The editor of this
paper cannot thank his friends fit-
ly for their expressions of love and
confidence, but loving this state
as he does and having a supreme
and abiding faith in its future
he feels that he would be unfaith-
ful and derelict of his duty if he
did not advocate committing its
destinies into the hands of the
young, resolute and ambitious.
Those who h ave set the world in a
blaze of glory, did so, not in the
frigidity of old age, but in the
heyday of youth."

This 1883 copy of the Banner
contains much that is the history
of Ocala. According to its files, it
is The Fire Edition, published
three days after the catastrophe.
Papa, not wishing to miss a single
issue, had hurried to Palatka,
about 60 miles away, and there got
out the paper for that week. His
o-s9'k-was complete, but in prideful
words he wrote, "We were just
placing the Banner where we in-
tended it, a paper unexcelled in the
state" and he added, "The Ban-
ner will rebuild." The Banner was
then in its 18th year.
The Fire Edition vividly describes
the Big Fire and what a fire it
must have been! An estimated loss
of $400,000! Five blocks laid in
ashes, including the Ocala House,
the Palace Hotel, ten stores, the
Banner office, the editor's. home
and many other homes and many
buildings and homes damaged,
among them the home of Mrs.
Whitfield (Sara Whitfiald Win-
ston's mother).
Before me is another old and
crumbling issue of the Banner. It
is dated 1885, and in this issue
there is a Rheinauer and Bros. ad,
in itself interesting because of its
clever style and. because it adver-
tises dress Goods-not dresses. I
doubt if ready-made dresses had
even been imagined. That ad also
tells quite a story, for Rheinauer's
continues to be one of
Ocala's principal stores, but time
marches on and "Mr. Ben" is the
only. one of the brothers left. And

nher celebrated its 50th anniversary
Papa was favorably mentioned as
a candidate for Governor of Flor-
ida and his open letter of thanks
and his refusal to consider the
suggestion received many beauti-
ful comments. In refusing he
wrote: "Ripened grain is fit only
to be garnered. There is nothing
more beautiful than honorable old
age. Its place, however, is in the
restful shade in summer and in
a snug place by the hearthstone in
winter. The promotion of colosal
enterprises and the affairs of state
and nation must be committed to
the hands of the young and amoi-
tious, to those who possess the fire,
vigor,, ginger and impetuosity of
youth, and not to those whost:
march, like the shadows of even-
ing, are lengthening.
"'Nature makes no mistakes and if
it has written one thing plainer
than another it is that old age
and office are not like Daniel
Webster's sentiment of Liberty and
Union, now and forever one and
inseparable. The editor of this
paper cannot thank his friends fit-
ly for their expressions of love and
confidence, but loving this state
as he does and having a supreme
and abiding faith in its future
he feels that he would be unfaith-
ful and derelict of his duty if he
did not advocate committing its
destinies into the hands of the
young, resolute and ambitious.
Those who h ave set the world in a
blaze of glory, did so, not in the
frigidity of old age, but in the
heyday of youth."

I.OUIS R. CHAZAL


Louis Richard Chazal, 82. died
yesterday afternoon at 6 o'clock
after a long illness. He was for many
years identified with the phosphate
industry of Florida.
Mr. Chazal came to Florida from
Charleston, C., in 1889, following
the discovery of hardrock phosphate.
He moved his family to Ocala in No-
vember, 1894, and he was active in
the phosphate industry here until
the ,outbreak of World War I.
During World War I he was
county chairinan cf th.e Red Cross.
He was for many years a director
of the Munroe & Chanmbliss Nation-
al bank.
Mr. Chazal was born Nov. 5, 1861,
in Charleston, S. C., the youngest
son of Dr. Jonn P. cnazal and Eu-
genie Legriel Chazal.
Surviving him are his widow, Mrs.
tNita H. Chazal; four sons, Louis H.
-.Chazal, Charles P. Clharz-, and John
ItP. Chazal, Ocala. and Colonel Ed-
wi.ard A. Chazal. U. S. Ar -v. Wsch-
S.ngtcn, D. C.; two daughters. Mrs.
I'. W. Ponder, Ocala, and Mr .
Ernest H. Hatch, Forest, Park. GQa.;
n '-d seventeen grandchildren.
The funeral services are to be

with a friend. Papa. said, "Daugh-
ter, you and Mr. Shepherd go, I
will stay at home." To coax him I
said, "Papa, we are going to play
poker." Before the words were out
of my mouth, he had gone to his
room and was quickly back and in
his best bib and tucker-a linen
suit and black sash, a sort of wide
vest-like belt, and very becoming
to him, I thought.
Delightful Ocala
I moved away from Ocala in 1914
and all the articles that he wrote
for the Banner came to me as
letters from home, but also among
my souvenirs I have many personal
letters such as this one: "Dear
Daughter: How are you? We are
thinking of you all the time. W$
hope that you are having, in Chi-
cago, as lovely spring weather as
we are having. Everything here is
now radiantly beautiful. Our for-
ests are a delight, our breezes are
soft and soothing. Life is a dream.

SI frequently return home for vis-
its-every year in fact. But now the
city is growing, the old timers are
fast passing on, so that now when
I return I feel somewhat like I
imagine my very dear friend Mrs.
Burford must have felt, one day at
the Baptist church which she had
regularly attended for over 50
years. A member of the welcoming
committee, evidently a comparative
newcomer, approached Mrs. Bur-
ford at the conclusion of the ser-
vice, shook hands and introduced
herself and said, "Might I ask
how long you have been coming
to OUR church?"
And now that last event. I can-
not keep it out. I knew of course
that it had to come. It always
does. We cannot stay it. After re-
ceiving the message that called me
home, I left for my last visit to
Papa. He was spared to us for two
more weeks. They were weeks of
tears and laughter. We knew it
was the end. He knew it too. Each
of us vied with the other to make
him comfortable and happy.
All of us were there and he, the
good sport, did his part to keep
us in good spirits. Mama would
-- !._ 1v,0o hahozidp and work her


office. He thought it would be more
convenient, because a livery stable
stood between the two offices.
That is one illustration of what
a poor business man Papa was, and
how little he cared about accumul-
ating money. (Frank Ditto's office
is now located where tne livery
stable was and there was also a
livery stable on the corner where
the Yoakum building now is.)
Welcome, Stranger
In another picture of the past,
we are all just sitting down to the
Breakfast table. There is a knock
at the door and Papa answers. A
little old lady is there, and Says,
"'Good morning, may I keg a bite
of breakfast. I stayed at the hotel
overnight and when I started intc
the restaurant I found that I had
only enough money to pay for my
room. I must have been robbed or
I must have lost some of my
money." ,
Papa, with a warmth of smiles
and always happy to do a favor
told her that we were just getting
ready to liave our brea::fast and
asked her to come right in. I told
a friend about it later and she
said, "'Oh, fiddle-de-de, did your
dad lall for that old woman'
yarn? My dad told her to be oi
aer way, he'd heard that story toc
many times before."
And now a tramp is at the back-
door. He says he will split some
wood for a meal. And Papa tells
one of us to fix something nice foi
aim to eat and Papa sits with him
as he eats. It mattered not about
the splitting of the wood. The beg-
gars all knew him.
Although Papa was religious he
never joined a church. Hc lived by
the Golden Rule. He believed in a9
religions.

"Who builds a church within his
heart
And takes it with him everywhere
Is holier far than he whose church
Is but a one-day house of prayer.'

I recall when I was still quite a
little girl that a warm friend o1
our family wrote Papa .nany let-
ters begging him to join .a certain
church, and she would say thai
unless he did his soul would be
lost forever.
Papa always like to play poker.

was visiting in Chicago, we were

By SARA HARRIS LLOYD
I once heard a Jacksonville visit-
or to Ocala say that she had never
visited in any place in Florida or
any other state where they gave
such lovely and elaborate parties ;
as they did in Ocala, so I am pre-
suming that the Banner's feminine
readers are as curious as I am and
that they will be interested in some
of the social events of yester years
(although I really can't quite go
back seventy-five years) but I'll
begin as far back as I can rem-
ember.
I recall that when I was a school
girl the Ocala Rifles was composed
almost entirely of the city's most
"elite" young men and this organ-
ization gave most of the social
events in Ocala. I can remember
that I thought I would never get
"old enough" to be allowed to go
to an Ocala Rifle'sball, but finally
when I was anout fifteen my par-
ents let me go to one of these func-
tions with my cousin, C. A. Harris
of Citra, now of Orlando. Never
was a girl more thrilled! And I had
a grand time and it was a granc
party despite the fact that at thi
time there was a, "foreign" min-
ister holding a revival service in a
tent somewhere in the center o.
town and that this particular bal
came in for quite a bit of control
ersy.

Hiawatha Club
Then I remember a social clul
known as the Hiawatha Club, com
posed of about a dozen young higl
school boys (only at that tim
"we girls" thought of them a
young men.) This set entertained
at weekly parties at the homes o
Various prominent residents (a
wherever the owners would con
sent to having the party) and would
donate their time or their daught
her's time to make all the necessary
arrangements for a party. Amon

that I remember were the lat

possibly others that I do not r
call.
