I T the Editor Ocala Banner:
i D11tg the past few years the blue
g r tree, one of the Australian euca-
lypta, hes been planted in parts of
=mthern Florida and has thrived to
such a dec m as to assure good re-
mits from plantings of that species
*n the southern section of the penin-
gda. The successful plantings were
*a in low, sandy soils near Cape
Canveral. about Fort Myers. and
-Isewbere. The water level Is usually
BM than six feet below the surface,
a" the trees find no difficulty in oh-
tailning all the moisture needed.
T1 blue gum and other eucalyptus
were brought to California from Aus-
trall ay years ago, and have
owN remarkable growth in the
war cnats and friendly soils of
he Pacdic coat It becomes a trunk
t a fw years when conditions are fa-
able, mbut It cannot withstand se-
ve fossg and for that reason it can
be grown with profit only In limited
ma of the TUnited States. Mubch at-
oBtim a Isbetg given to it in Califor-
ot, and hundreds of thousands of
ees were planted the past year. Rail-
roads use it for ties and are planting
orge tracts for that purpose. It has
many uses-fuel, posts, poles and
lumber. No tree grows with greater
The success which has attended the
Introduction of this valuable tree in
southern Florida proves that it will
prosper there. Although much of th*
soil is stony, the underground water
lies near the surface and the roots of
the eucalyptus easily reach it. If they
can obtain sufficient anchorage to
hold the trunks against the force of
the wind. success is reasonably sure
even in the stony ground, while many
atuatlons are available where the
soil is deep and is free from stones.
and in such places the eucalypt finds
ideal conditions for rapid growth.
Lame Shoulder Cured
Lame shoulder is usually caused by
rheumatism of the muscles and quick-
ly yields to a few applications of
Chamberlain's Pain Balm. Mrs. F. H.
McElwee of Boistown. New Bruns-
wick, writes: "Having been troubled
for some time with a poin in my left
shoulder. I decided to give Chamber-
lain's Pain Balm a trial, with the re-
sult that I got prompt relief." For

It is said to vote dry does not stop
the rum business: hence we should
not vote for it. WelL "no-saloons"
may not absolutely stop every bit of
the rum selling, but it does stop the
bulk of It when properly enforced..
A man one day stepped into the
store of a prominent business man in
a wet town and said: "If we get no-li-
cense there will be more drinking
than there is now." The sensible
buaiess man replied: "Well, I notice
that I sell a great deal more of any

article when I display it in my front
1i t.Ows than I do when I keep it
kecked up in a back room in a closet."
Here Io s atrovg argument in favor of
,otlng dry. Every Improved store
front and every plate glas window in
the city is an argument in favor of a
dry town. These windows aie used
to display goods and tempt people to
come in and buy. Liquor displayed
in these same windows would attract
ti(e attention and arouse the appetite
of men passing by who would tN.s b'
drawn into the saloon, time and time
again. where they would not think of
drinking were not the temptation so
c-ntantly before them.
N Imatter what son..' n, i s t-,y,

Going "Dry" Has Made Gainesville Property Values
Largely Increased and Population Nearly Doubled.

Gainesville. Fla.. Dec. 7. 1 7.
Mr. Lester S. Moody. Dunnellon. Fla.:
My Dear Sir-Your le:t-r of ho
ad Inst. received and read wzh con-
uldemble interest. I anm sinmpy as-
bmwded that any sane man woe:iil
make such false staternen:s as tho-e
mumerated as given tj you. in yo;r
rteent letter.
They are a complete perv,-rsion of
the acts. I should have answtr-K1
you sooner but have been securing
ome affidavits from the different
enty and city officers so tha- you
my see just what the truth is. In
the first place, you will note 'hat the
lerk makes an affidavit that thl- cou:n-
ty went dry June 6. 19v. You will
also notice from tte affidavit mad I v
WV. W. Colson. tax assessor of Alach-
ua county, that the county valuations
have increased since the county went
dry, $1.616.172. If you will examine
the affidavit from the treasurer you
will note the surplus that was in the
same on December ,). I....,. and eah
consecutive year since. An examina-
tlk of the affidavit made ty William
Bradford, the city tax assessor. you
will notice that since the cit; went
dry Its valuations have incr.-ased
37O0.2_3.14. When the county went.
dry our school board was in d-?t o
the amount of $77.253 and a: least
$3W accumulated interest. Th. -n.yV
obligation that the school boar' has
outside the current expenses since
July 1. is $S9S7.4A'. We have also
paid quite a considerable sum on the
CURTat expenses, and we are pos':ve-
Ie @re that by July 1, 1?,)S. the schll
oard of Alachua county wi'. not owe
a dollar, and we have more children!
In wbOQQl tau ever before. The coun- I
ty of Alachua was never so prosper-l
o as at this time. The county corn-
ml-omers in the last few years have
bult miles of hard road. and have
generally replaced wooden bridges
with Sne steel ones. The city of
Gieesville has been revolutionized
slo whiskey has been driven out.
Po of the principal corner stores.
oba whiskey was dealt put. arc now
Clied by drug and dry goods
awa. All wooden buildings have
beo removed from the square and
6 irceat brick structures have
be erectd. The volume of busi-
mo has about doubled. The city has
paved quite a number of the princi-
pal street, and put down miles of
gramolUtbic sidewalks. In 1903 the
popIlation was about 4400. The cen-

Ssus taken recently shows about 73.5.

Odd Fellows and Rebekah* Hold Pub-
lic Meeting-Splendid Supper
Served After Ceremonies
The public installation of officers
which was scheduled for Tuesday
--vening in the Odd Fellows and Re-
bekah lodges proved to be a most en-
joyable affair.
The ceremonies were In charge of
Acting Grand Master M. M. Little, as-
sisteid by Acting Grand Marshal J. S.
Pedrick. The beautiful ritualistic cer-
emonies were recited in an impres-
s:ive manner by the officers in charge,
and The officers installed in the Odd
Fellow, for the ,nsuing term were:
J. F Th)mpson, N. G.; P. V. Leaven-
good. V. G : M. M. Little. Sec.; J. H.

supper was served in the hall, and to
the management of Mr. Jake Brown Is
due the clock-work smoothness with
which the affair was conducted.
The bill of fare consisted of raw
oysters, baked turkey with dressing,
cranberry sauce and jelly, pickles, ol-
ives, celery, cake of various kinds,
cheese and coffee.
Though the night was anything but
a pleasant one quite a few were pre.
ent on this occasion, and what was
lacking in numbers was made up by
the enthusiasm of those who did brave
the elements and come out.

The handsome home of Mr. C. K.
Connor on Lake Weir avenue Is now
being gotten ready for the arrival of
the Connor family, who are expected
to reach Ocala in a few weeks, and
Swill make this city their home again.

Mr. A. L. Ross of Gaiter. a veteran
Banner subscriber, was in to see us
Tuesday and renewed for 1908, some-
thing that he has done continuously
every year for the past forty years.

in on an average of $150 per day each
for Ocala, and $100 per day each for
Some men who are in a position to
know, claim that they will average
$200 per day each, but not wishing to
over-estimate it, we have placed It at
the above figures. This means for the
seven barrooms for Ocala and six for
Dunnellon, $1650 per day is spent in
Marion county for whiskey, or $514,-
800 for the 312 work days in the year,
or $1.029.600 in two years.

me with herself, her future-her

from her eye and the rose faded
from her cheeks. I think of it all 3W

Did someone say there was going to
be another dance this week? Good!
Mr. Washburn has begun a new rew

auspicious, Mr. Dudley.
The candy pulling at Mrs. Wash-

tendance will be present

I read in today's Constitution what
Rabbi Fleischer says about the fight-

Aig upon the advice of President Elli-
ot of Harvard to young Jews to join
the militia.
There is no question that when oc-
casion demands his services the good
Jewish citizen, like most good citi-
zens, whatever be creed or belief,
makes a splendid soldier. The writer,
a Confederate veteran, stood in the
ranks between two young Jews who
came south about the commencement
of the war, and there were no better,
no braver soldiers, that those two.
They promptly volunteered, though
they could have remained non-cambat-
ants, both being German citizens.
They were always ready for duty,
shirking no danger, and were gener-
al favorites with. their comrades.
They came through the war after
many battles, in which they won dis-
tinction for cool courage and soldierly
i:. many talks with comnrad(les in my

blue I have learned of similar experi-
t i.es of thl, courage and )ravery of
Jewish soldiers.
There is no question that they will
go into battle when the occasion de-
mands it. and why shouldn't they?
Their inheritance of courage comes
down through the ages; it has never
disappeared from the blood. I don't
know who would make the best sol-
dier, Rabbi Fleischer or President El-
liot. but if age permitted we would
probably see them both prompt in re-

The nativity of Christ the Lord
ushers into the world the Christian
religion, which proclaims among
many other things the law of univer-
sal brotherhood. I'nlike the sanguin-
ary faith of Mohammed, which sub-
sists only under despotic rule. and
which demands the surrender of one's
faith as the highwayman demands the
traveler's purse, at the point of the
sword, the Christian religion flourish-
es utinder every system of government
from an absolute monarchy to the l
freest republic. I'nlike the school of
the I)agan philosophers, which was re-
stricted to a narrow circle of disci-
ples. the gospel of Ch.rist is pro-
claimed to Jew and Gentile, Greek
and barbarian, to lbond and free. Like
the air of heaven, which ascends the
highest mountain and descends into
the (leepest valley. vivifying the face
of nature, so has the Christian relig-
iOn permeated every stratum of socie-
ty. purifying and invigorating the
moral world.
It has a message for the capitalist
and the laborer, for the master and
the servant, for the rich and for the
poor. In the words of St. James, it
warns the capitalist against the sin
of labor-oppression: "Behold the
hire of your laborers who have reap-
ed( down your fields, which by fraud
has been kept back byv you, crieth:
and the cry of them hath, entered into
:he ears of the Lord of Sabbath." St.
.Jamcs v... 4. It admonishes the labor-
er to perform his work with fidelity,
not serving to the eye, as it were!
pleasing men. but doing the will of
God from thve heart." The most en-
lightened political economist never
formulated a sentence so simple, so
comprehensive, so effectual, as is con-
tained in these words: "Thou shalt
love thy neighbor as thyself." This
principle, if properly applied, would
solve every labor problem that per-
plexes the minds of statesmen.-J.

-Pain and Itching were Terrible.

"When I was small I was troubled

that it was just a large scab all over,

some time and was then adJvised by him
to use the Cuticura Remedies which I
did and I was entirely cured. I have
