Quite a crowd of Jacksonville peo-

While Mr. and Mrs. Ben Raysor
were returning to their home Mon-
day at Lowell, Mrs. Raysor had occa-
sion to remove her eye glasses and
put them in her purse, and in a lit-
tle while discovered that her pocket-
book had slipped off her lap and was
lost. They immediately retraced their
steps towards Ocala in search of the
missing purse, but could find no trace
o0 it. They were told, however, that
two negro women were seen to pass
down the road soon after they had
gone along in their buggy, but no one
knew the names of the women. The
pocketbook contained the following
articles: Three soltaire diamond
rings, valued at $250 each, two pair
eye glasses, gold chain and locket,
with inscription "To Tillie," and sev-
eral dollars in change.
Mr. Raysor offers $100 r-ward for
return of the purse.


The Jacksonville excursion over
the A. C. L. Monday morning was

does not know that we now have ex-

his friends here would like to get a

and his car. Don't pass us by. Mr.

This week was enlivened for a
crowd of the society set yesterday by
the picnic given by Mr. and Mrs. B. S.
Weathers for the former's sisters.
Misses Esther and Janet Weathers, of
Ocala. The evening was spent at
Sulphur Springs, making the largest
and most delightful social affair that
has been given since the beginning
of the summer season. Dancing, the
roller coasters and the swimming pool
all contributed their share to the
evening's round of pleasure. Anoth-
er plan that has been made for the
entertainment of the Misses Weath-
ers is a cruise down the hay. Mr. and
Mrs. Weathers, thsir two guests. Mr
WV. H. Beckwith and Mr. Beenian

Mr. R. D. StokP. of the Withlaco"-

Ocala visitors Wednesd(lay. He says
the new steel bridge across the river
near his place is a beauty', but that
it will not be fully completed! for sev-
eral weeks. Colonel Venable. he says.
will have the new dirt road across the
prairie completed in about a week.
It is being built for the purpose of
eventually being made into a hard
road. and meeting the hard roads
which are being built in the direction
of Inverness and Brooksville. While
in the city Mr. Stokes did not forget
to have his favorite paper continued to
him for another year.


Mrs. M. M. Davison of No. 379 Gif-
ford Ave., San Josei, Cal., says: "The
worth of Electric Bitters as a gener-
al family remedy, for headache, bil-
iousness and torpor of the liver and
bowels is so pronounced that I am
prompted to say a word in its favor,
for the benefit of those seeking relief
from those afflictions. There is more
health for the digestive organs in a
bottle of Electric Bitters than in any
other remedy I know of." Sold under

Colonel Venable was in town Sat-
ur(lay and says that he has finished
the road across one of the prairies
going from here to Stokes Ferry, and
is now in the second and last prairie.
When it is completed and McAdamiz-
ed and is connected with the road to
Dunnellon we will have a continuation

of hard roads to the county line in two
directions; will be met with other
roads across the line in Citrus, and
will have a long stretch of good roads.

Mr. Holder's new automobile hap-
!,ened to quite a serious accident Fri-
dlay. It was being driven by Mr.
Ed Tucker, when in some manner he
lost control of it and ran it on to the
car of granite blocks that was being
unloaded in the rear of Keating & Co'
There was no one in the car with
Mr. Tucker at the time of the acci-
(lent and he escaped unhurt, but the
body of the handsome machine was
completely wrecked.
It was taken to the Ocala Wagon
Works, and it was said that it would
take several weeks to put it in shape
We think Mr. Holder intends to
send for a new body and top byv ex-

We received a note from Mr. Ben CAPITAL OF

E. Raysor yesterday saying that the
lost purse cornt:.ning the diamond
rings, gold eYv glasses, money and
other articles o! value had been found
and returned to him.
The purse was found by a little ne-
gro girl, the daughter of Grant James,
who works Tor the Standard Lime
Company at Kendrick.
Mr. Raysor says that he had some
receipted bills in the purse and as
Grant James knew him he immediate-
ly brought the purse to him. Not a
single article was missing. The purse
contained three handsome diamond
rings which Mr. Raysor purchased
from Mr. A. E. Burnett, the jeweler,
this city, and paid him $250 for each;
a gold chain and locket; two pair of
gold rimmed eye glasses; $17.45 in
cash, and other articles of value.
Notwithstanding there was a re-
ward of $100 offered for the return
of the purse and its contents, the lit-
tle girl's father refused to receive
a dollar. He said that the things did
not belong to him and he felt that it
was his duty to return them to their
rightful owner, and that it gave him
immense pleasure to do so.
Mr. Raymsor says don't tell him there
are no honest negroes-that, like the
good Indians, they are all dead-for
James Grant is a living denial of any
such statement.
We congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Ray-
sor on the recovery of the purse and
its valuable contents.


The old capital of Scotland has long

A Dream of Scotland, by a Scottish
Earl's Granddaughter
'Twas morn-but not the ray which
falls thb' summer's bougns among,
When beauty walks in giadness forth,
with all her light and song;
'Twas morn-but mist and cloud hung
deep upon the lovely vale,
And shadows, like the wings of death,
were out upon the gale.

For he (Sir Walter Scott) whose spir-
it woke the dust of nations into
That o'er the waste and barren earth
spread flowers and fruitage rife-
Whose genius, like the sun, illumed
the mighty realms of mind,
Had fled forever from the fame, love,
friendship of mankind!

To wear a wreath in glory wrought
his spirit swept afar,
Beyond the soaring wing of thought,
the light of moon or star;
To drink immortal waters, free from

porter of the New York Prodice News
for an opinion in regard to the reduc-
tion of freight on fruits and vegeta-
bles from Florida. Mr. Preston said
the reduction should be 20')15c. per
box, but as he had not been officially
notified of the decision he was not
fully posted so as to give an opinion-
He was also asked in regard to crop
conditions in Florida. He replied:
"Regarding the condition of fruit
and vegetable crops in our immediate
vicinity, there is no doubt that our
situation would be about the same
as other growers in our neighborhood.
Early this spring we anticipated a
crop that would turn out between 90,-
000 to 110,000 boxes of oranges and
grapefruit, but we have hai very dry
weather all through the spring and
summer, more so than we have had
for the last few seasons. The conse-
quence is that a great deal of the
fruit has dropped and we feel as

"Clod Hopper" is in doubt of this, let
him read the Banner next December.
"Tax Payer" is advised that we are
not paving the streets of Ocala, but
we are trying to improve that which
belongs to the county. The county
happens to own a certain lot of land
on which the jail is built. There is
a street running by it which also be-
longs to the county. In the Faid street
is a low basin, holding water when it
rains. We are going to raise and
harden this place. We have made
arrangements with the city council to
harden their part.
"Tax Payer" is further advised that

the law compels

boards of county

commissioners to pay back half of
the road tax paid by incorporated
towns or cities to improve streets
with; the other half is used to build
or improve roads; so you can see
that Ocala is paying a lot of taxes that
go in that direction.
If I am not mistaken, there is a
hard road built nearly to Anthony.
Don't you get the benefit of that in
going to Ocala? When your turn
comes, it will be built further on.
Gentlemen, you have no grounds for
your criticism. Won't you be reason-
ably sure in the future that you have
cause for complaint before you shoot
at us, and then get out of ambush into
the open, and say what you have to
say over your own signatures.


The Appeal to Reason asks this
pertinent question:
"The next president will have the
naming of four judges of the supreme
court who are to hold their jobs for
life. Do you imagine either of the
Bills would appoint a member of the
working class, or a man who does not
believe in injunctions?"
But in the name of reason we want
to know the class that has ever used
injunctions more than labor unions?
Do they not enjoin every time they
send a "walking delegate" to the em-
ployer or manufacturer and by threats

A day or two ago we made mention
of a newspaper printed at Suva, Fiji,
the Western Pacific Herald, which a
traveler from New Zealand gave to a
gentleman in Ocala, who in turn gave
it to us.
The Herald has a corps of neighbor-
hood correspondents, the same as the
majority of newspapers in this coun-
try, and in scanning the columns of
the same we were struck with the fol-
lowing marriage notice, and as mar-
riages are always interesting the one
under consideration, perhaps, will be
quite so.
The letter to the Herald is from
Upper Dreketi, and is under date of
May 18, 1908.
The correspondent says:
"Doloko had a triple wedding on
the 16th, and great was the feasting
1thereat. Three sons on the one side
married to three daughters on the
other, in the one act as it were, is a
big round-up in two families."
Now, there is nothing particularly
striking nor exceptional about that,
for it not frequently, but it sometimes
occurs that we have triple marriages
in neighboring families in this coun-
try, but note what follows. The cor-
respondent goes on to say:
"The united ages of the six falls a
couple of years under fifty (?) but
there's nothing like an early start."
How old must have been the young-
est of these couples?

Tallahassee. Fla., Aug. 15. 190S.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Dear Sir-The commissioners are
sending you herewith copies of re-
ports of F. P. Damon. inspecting engi-
neer of the commission, relative to
condition of track from Baldwin to
Dade City, on the S. A. L. Ry. The
commissioners thought ihis might be
of interest to your readers.
Yours very truly,

Tallahassee, Fla., A.ug. 13, 190S.
Hons. R. Hudson Burr, Chairman.
John L. Morgan, Newton A. Blitch,
Railroad Commissioners, Tallahas-
see, Florida:
Gentlemen-I give below a report
of the condition of the track of the
Seaboard Air Line Railway trom Bald-
win to Dade City, from notes taken
from the rear end of a passenger
From Baldwin to about three miles
south of Ocala the track is laid with
68 and 70 pound rails; between Bald-
win and Orange Heights there are a
good many places where the allign-
ment is bad. This seems to have been
caused by rails having been laid with
joints too close, and not enough al-
lowance has been made for expansion
-the hot weather during the summer
months expanding the rails would
cause the kinks shown in the allign-
ment. This will all probably be put
in good line a little later when the
hot weather has passed.
The curved line near Highland is in
good surface and line, and f.hows bet-
ter allignment that most of the track
on tangents. There has been consid-
erable work done on the road recent-
ly, in surfacing track and renewal of
ties, and this work is being contitn-
ued. There are now ties distributed
along the roadbed and in piles along
the line of road sufficient to complete
all renewals. From near Orange
Heights to the end of the 70-pound
rails, about three miles south of
Ocala, the track is good. It is in good
surface and line with. the exception of
a few places where ties are distribu-
ted for renewals, and are now being
put in the track. All tie renewals are
being kept up.
From the end of the 70-pound rails
near Ocala, to Dade City, the track is
laid with 60-pound rails. While this
does not ride as smoothly as the track
with the 70-pound rail, it is mostly in
good surface and line. The exceptions
are between the end of th-e 70-pound
rails and Santos, and at some other
places, very nearly all of which have
ties distributed along the roadbed for
renewals. A great many ties have
been put in the track recently, and
renewals are being continued.
Trestles show in good condition, and
that all necessary repairs are being
kept up.
Yours respectfully,
Inspecting Engineer.

Prof. Fawcett of the Flori
Valuable Informa
While on a visit to St. Petersburg
Prof. H. S. Fawcett, a member of th(
Florida experiment station staff
wrote the following article of th'
work of the station to the St. Peters
burg Independent in its efforts to ex
terminate the "white fly," the orang
tree's most dangerous pest:
One line of work in which the e.
periment station seeks to aid th
grower is the scientific study of th
insect and fungus pest, a thing which
the practical grower usually has n
time nor opportunity to do. Whbe
I for instance, a new fungus trouble
appears, it is necessary to determine
just how the organism maintains i
self; how it propagates, where
Spends its dormant period, whether


or not it lives part of its life on some
other plant or dead wood from which
its spores are conveyed to the orange
tree. All these points, so often diffi-
cult to determine, because of the mi-
croscopic nature of the fungus, may
be of great value in suggesting a way
of exterminating or controlling the
trouble. When these points have
once been determined the next step
is to experiment-to try probable
remedies. From the nature of the
case many of the experiments are
without result, and from a practical
point of view are pronounced failures.
In fact, if they were not, the question
would be beyond the experimental
stage. But these negative results are
of great value sometimes in determin-
ing what cannot be done, and thus di-
recting the experiments into another
The greatest interest in this sec-
tion at present seems to center in the
white fly question. As the study of
insects is outj of the botanists' juris-
diction, and belongs more properly
to the entomologist, I can speak only
in a general way of the white fly. As
is well known, it hatches from a
scale insect and in its flying state
does no damage to the trees. Each
female fly, however, lays from sev-
enteen to twenty-five eggs on the un-
der side of a leaf within eighteen to
thirty hours after hatching, and then
soon dies. These eggs hat,-h in three
to twenty days. according to the tenm-
l)erature into the larvae form which
soon attach themselves firmly to the
under side of a leaf, and remain sta-
tionary, drawing their nourishment
from the tissues of the leaf. These
scales are oval in form and inconspic-
uous because of a light gray tinge
due to its transparency. In this stage
the scale insect secretes a kind of
honey dew which drops to the upper
surface of the leaves below. The
spores of the sooty mould finding
lodgment in the honey dew, grow
rapidly, and cause the sooty appear-
ance of the leaves and fruit.
Just how can the white fly be kept
out and when once established how
is it to be fought are permanent ques-
tions to which as yet no very satis-

fungi, the pink Aschersonia and the
brown fungus are of value in reduc-
ing the white fly scale in scme parts
of the state. These fungi, more par-

ticularly the
be introduced

pink Aschersonia, can
under favorable condi-

tions of temperature and moisture by
pinning leaves containing white fly
scales. Prof. Berger, the entomolo-
gist, has succeeded in starting it in
this way as far north in the state as
Lake City. It can be quickly intro-
duced, perhaps, by planting trees into
the grove containing abundant fungi.
These fungi are a little slow in their
action, but in the absence of a better
remedy it might be advisable for
those beginning to have the white fly
to introduce the fungi early so that
they will be on hand to work when
worse days come.
There are a number of important
troubles of a fungus or physiological
nature that are prevalent throughout
the state. Among these wither tip,
foot rot and die back. These are well
known diseases and can be kept fair-
ly well under control by proper treat-
The wither tip fungus is very wide-
spread. There are usually three man-
ifestations of its presence. On the
leaf it forms brown patches over the
surface of which are minute black
specks. In this form it is often
known as leaf spot. On young trees
it causes a dropping off of leaves and
fruit and causes a dying back of the
tip. On the fruit, especially grape-
fruit, it forms yellowish brown patch-
es, which finally develop into dlark
rotten spots.
A.s remedial measures Prof. Rolfs
gives in his bulletin the flowing:
1. For young trees, i;raining out of
dead trees and picking up of all rub-
bish and dead leaves and fruit on
which spores might develop is recom-
2. Thorough cultivation and fertili-
zation rendering trees less liable to
attack. The use of a larger percent-
age of potash and sulphate of ammo-
nia rather than nitrate of soda. Or-
ganic ammonia is to be avoided as
far as possible.
Of course each grower must treat
his grove according to the conditions
of soil and moisture that he has at
hand No hard and fast rules can be
laid down.

THE PRESIDENT AND FARM LIFE age southern tenant one-norse farm.

President Roosevelt wants life on
the farm to be the sweetest picture
in American life. To help make it so
he has appointed a commission on
country life composed of four experts
on agriculture. These experts are:
Prof. L. H. Bailey of Cornell Univer-
sity, Ithica, N. Y.; President Kenyon
L. Butterfield, Massachusetts Agricul-
tural College, Amherst, Mass.; Mr.
Gifford Pinchot, United States Forest
Service, Washington, D. C.. Mr. Wal-
ter H. Page, editor World's Work,
New York City.
The president says:
"No nation has ever achieved per-
manent greatness unless this great-
ness was based on the well-being of

This apparently extreme statement is
based upon actual life among both
classes of people.'
"I doubt if any other nation can bear
comparison with our own in the
amount of attention given by the gov-
ernment, both federal and state, to
agricultural matters. But practically
the whole of this effort has hitherto
been directed toward increasing the
production of crops. In the beginning
this was unquestionably the right
thing to do. But when this has been
secured, the effort for better farming
should cease to stand alone, and
should be accompanied by the effort
for better business and better living
on the farm.
"It is at least as important that
