the plaudits of her many loyal friends
who helped her to win this victory

The trip down 'the Okiawaha and
up the St. Johns was made without
mishap, and the only turbulent
weather experienced was on Federal
Point, which is about forty-five miles
from Jacksonville. This was Friday
at noon. when a heavy wind and rain
squall came up that threatened to do
serious injury to the little craft and
her occupants. She weathered the
storm, however, and proved her sea-
worthiness in the encounter.
Leaving Connor at 7 o'clock in the
morning. Palatka was reached at 7
p. in., where the party remained all
night till Friday morning at 7 o'clock,
and after a run of all day Jacksonville
was reached at 6:30 p. m.
While here Capt. Mason will have
his little vessel registered and will se-
cure papers to operate the craft up
and down the picturesque Oklawaha,
taking tourist on sight-seeing and
fishing expeditions.
Those who made the trip in the
boat to Jacksonville, besides Capt.
Mason, are Maxie Mason, J. S.
Thompson, J. U. Havis, Rosco Mar-

Never did. The south has always

We have a lovely section and vant

That is the politics of the south at
the present moment, and has been so
since the surrender at Appomattox.


Monday the nation paid loving trib-
ute to the memory of George Wash-
ington, affectionately called the
"Father of His Country."
It is fortunate for the perpetuity of
our free institutions that the Roose-
veltan idea did not prevail when the
first president was at the head of its
affairs. Had the early republic been
inoculated with the Rooseveltan virus
the country would have long since
been subverted into a monarchy.
We cannot praise the memory of
Washington too much. His patriot-
ism and amenable character still has
a soft and mellowing influence on all
who are familiar with it and his life
and character cannot be emphasized
too frequently and taught too sedu-
lously in the schools.
He was the right man in the right
place at the right time. In all the
world there were fewer more heroic
flgu -es.

A Japanese commissioner sent over
by his government to study American
methods of farming, is a pupil at the
Nebraska agricultural college. He
has his family with him, and on the
appearance of a baby boy he succumb-
ed to the inevitable. The kid is nam-
ed William Jennings Bryan Seki, and
he will one day rank high in the coun-
cils of his native land. That sounds
a little awkward, as he was born in
this country, but according to univer-
sal usage a man's nativity attaches to
the place where he was born though
temporarily absent at the time. Mr.
Seki has been several years in this
country, and will soon graduate and

which helped on to the discovery of
Ocala by the outside world.
It remembers the volume of praise
it bestowed on Mr. Albertus Vogt
when he made the discovery of 1-hos-
phate in our county, and the praise
also that it gave to the late Mr. John
F. Dunn when he made this discovery
known beyond the limits of the state.
The Ocala Banner did not and
would not for the world put these
write-ups into its advertising columns
at so much per line.
The Ocala Banner is not built along
*those lines, and rather than do so it
prefers to fill its particular niche in
its own particular and modest way.
This newspaper early set its face
against sectionalism in the nation and
in the state. When other newspapers
were teeming with articles about the
unhealthfulness of Ocala and its
death rate, its reply was that Ocala
was located on a commanding emi-
nence: that it enjoyed the same
breezes and sunshine as other Florida
towns; had no local causes to breed
sickness and death, and if its near-by
rivals continued to talk that way
abound it the intended tourist and in-
vestor would come to the conclusion
that Ocala was not exceptional, and
the whole state must be similarly af-
This paper has been impartial in
its write-ups of other sections. It re-
members its write-up of the beautiful
Manatee section just after the de-
struction of our own richly laden or-
ange groves, and bow extensively the
article was copied into the literature
of that section.
This paper has been confronted
with but two things during the course
of its career, viz: Right and Wrong,
and it has tried to hew to the former
proposition, whether it met with
friendly or adverse criticism.
It has made many mistakes, but it
says without fear of successful con-
tradiction that it has done what it
conceived to be the right as it has
been given the power to see it.

This paper early advocated the pri-

idea of which was to give the "poor

When the system was put into op-

After all the weary life-struggle-
after genius triumphs and fame and
honor and wealth are won by toil and
sacrifice-what boots it? Is it all dead
sea fruit which turneth to bitter ash-
es at the touch of longing lips? Is it
worth while?
At beautiful Naples. on the Gulf,
where the sun shines softly and the
breezes blow gently and nature-life is
calm and restful, there is nov an old
man of extraordinary genius-a man
who for half a century has held the
attention of the English-speaking
world-whose genius has compelled
admiration; whose brilliancy has
charmed thousands of people in all
the walks of life; whose eloquence of
pen and voice has thrilled human
hearts throughout all these years;
who has won the very highest position
and honor and applause., But now he
seeks only quiet and peace and es-
cape from all that which has filled his
life as its very heart-throbs. With
his triumphs fate has woven great
sorrows; to his victorious and honor-
ed old age has.been added the blajt-
ing of hopes and the loneliness un-
speakable of love-dreams wrecked.
And he stands and waits.

Editor Hare of the Arcadia News is
of the opinion that the liquor dealers
have entire knowledge of every act of
legislation in the United States vhich
in any way affects their business, and
he is doubtless right about it. But as
for the state inspector being lenient
with them on account of their ignor-
ance (?), this is a matter that will
rest with the department of agricul-
ture. In the inspector's statements
to a Jacksonville Metropolis reporter,
either he was not specific in the lan-
guage he used, or the reporter mis-
understood him. for Hon. B. E. McLin
and Capt. R. E. Rose are 'the officials
who enforce the law, and the inspec-
tor is subject to their instructions.-

We thought Jordan's position was

There is too much passing of the re-

McLln could use a plenty more con-
victs to auction off in the hurried
convict lease bid, and if Jordan's
statement be true, quite a number of

The Mexican Academy of Medicine
has offered $50,000 in prizes for sci-

preventing typhoid fever, one of the
worst diseases which the cities of
Mexico have to contend with.
Twenty thousand dollars will go to
the discoverer of a specific that will
cure the disease, a like amount to the
person discovering a serum that will
kill the germs in the blood, and $10,-

who give the most aid to the winners
of ,the first two prizes.

Editor Williamson of the Jackson-
ville Floridian, is of the opinion that
Telfair Stockton will be a candidate
for the United States senate next
year, against Senator Taliaferro.
Although there ks no positive an-
nouncement on the subject from any-
one authorized to speak, it is gener-
ally recognized that Mr. Taliaferro
will stand for re-election. Many peo-
ple in the state are "of the opinion
that Mr. Taliaferro has earned an-
other re-election and that he is one of
the most influential and effective
workers 'that the state ever had in
'Vashington. As a "business senatOr""
ihe has not been given to many words
,r parading himself in prini as do so
many of the national lav-makers:
but he has been a quiet worker, (ver
keen to the interests of his constitu-
-nts, and re has contributed practical
ideas to the service of the people
rather than flowery language to the
pages of the Congressional Record.
Be that as it may, there is little
doubt that someone will have the te-
merity to enter the list against Mr.
Taliaferro. It has been all along the
generally entertained idea that for-
mer Governor Broward would be the
representative of the opposition-if
there is any organized or substantial
opposition in the case-but indica-
tions now are that the former govern-
or has "enough" for a while and will
devote his time and attention to other
than political matters. He is doubt-
less content to rest on the characteri-
zation given him by the writer in Ev-
erybody's Magazine-"From Deck
Hand to Governor"-without spoiling
that pretty story by a probably unsuc-
cessful attempt to step ever higher.
Whoever runs for the senate
against Mr. Taliaferro may expect to
experience a most strenuous cam-
paign, for the people of Florida have
their eyes turned toward practical re-
sults more than ever before and they
are going 'to ask themselves seriously
and thoughtfully if the offered succes-
sor is capable of "doing things" with
the, facility and the success which
have' attenldedl tht- career of the I res-
elit senator.
The Tribune trusts that the siate
will be spared an acrimonious, bitter
ca inaign next year. We had enough

road shops.
Moreover. Jacksonville is a clean,
healthy, handsome city. Since its
disastrous fire of eight years ago, it
has literally made all things new. It
has covered 'the ashes of the burned
city with eight thousand new build-
ings. including several sky scrapers

est town--St. Augustine-founded by
Ponce de Leon and his men almost
four centuries ago. Its streets are
narrow and medieval. Quaint Span-
ish housess are huddled together be-
hind aged palm trees. Crumbling
walls of coquina-a sort of shell-rock
-mark the spot where the Spanish.
French andi English oner fought for
sovere 'ignty. And near thie beach
stands the most tragic relic *of the
Spa:::sh era-old Fort Marion. with
its hattle-scarredl walls and its win-
dolh'ss dliungeoils.
Ev\'n more unique is th1 island
city of Key West. where alert coim-
mercialisn and dreamy romance are
blended in a most confusing medley.
This isle of the Gulf Stream was one
of the last strongholds of the pirates.
Hitlhr they towed their prizes and
here they buried their treasure, until
the !as; of them-old Joe Ralda-was
compelled to meet his ways in 1821.
It was here. too, in a dingy Ititle cof-
fee-house. that Gomez, Garcia, Palma,
Zayas and Maceo met together and
planned the Cuban revolution of 1895
-the beginning of the end of Spanish
rule in the New World. And yet the
remote coral-reef of piracy and rev-
olution has now grown to be a thriv-
ing factory city, making one-third as
many Havana cigars as Tampa-
nearly a hundred million a year. It
has also become, since the Spanish
war, the most important naval out-
post in the southeastern corner of
the Inited States.
Big things are now being done in
Floridla. In no othr state, I venture
to say., are so few peoplee doing so
much. Here is the tiny town of West
Palm Beach. with perhaps four hun-
dred families. building a $G6I.'0,0
school anid draining enough land to
give e' cry family a square mile reach.
Here yon c(an see the white city of
Miari. anid 'the tourist city of St. Pa-

tona. 11l of which were little or r-oth-

Three important waterways have
recently been opened. partly by gov-
ernment aid and partly by local en-
terprise, so that Tampa and Jackson-
ville are now ports for large steam-
ships, and an inland channel runs
nearly the whole length of the state.
This latter is itself one of the won-
ders of Florida-a four hundred mile
tide-level canal.
Civic patriotism runs high in most
Florida communities. There is little
state feeling, and state enterprises
are not well supported; but every-
where the tourist meets bodies of res-
idents who are optimists, zealots, fa-
natics, on the subject of the especial
advantages of their own neighbor-
hood. In Jacksonville this local spir-

Jacksonville is easily the pre-emi-

fourth of her energy. In location it

"Q -s- __


In one way Marion county might
be called the paradise of the husband-
man. From its display, there is evi-
dently no limit to its productiveness,
as far as the fruits of the field are
concerned, while it is rich in woods
and is the birthplace of Florida's
great article of export-phosphate.
Its products of the field are what
might be termed even running. There
is no monstrous vegetable on display
in its comfortably filled booth, no ex-
ceptional fruit or vegetable-that is,
exceptional for Florida-byt the pro-
fusion are all full sized and there is
a plentitude of each article, which
shows that painstaking care and a
general ransacking did not have to be
recorded to in order to till up tht exhib-
it. W. D. Carn is the commissioner
in charge.
Particularly rich is Marion county
in vegetable wealth. Its displays of
Irish and sweet potatoes are particu-
larly fine. Then, there are big, solid
heads of cabbage in profusion, while
lettuce, turnips, rutabagas, beets, cas-
sava, velvet beans, etc., are display-
ed by the sack full. That very deli-
cious vegetable, cauliflower, is in evi-
dence as well, the heads being large
and firm. Side by side with the veg-
etable display is the jars of garden
seed saved by the industrious farmers
of the county who save their own
seed, wnich is a matter that could re-
ceive more attention from gardeners,
generally speaking, with very excel-
lent results. The displays of hay
could hardly be more varied. Every
variety of hay grown in this section
is exhibited in neatly piled bales.
From common beggarweed to pea-
vine the gamut is run, while a new
departure in feed grasses, Natal hay,
an importation from South America-
which is said to give excellent results
in Marion-is exhibited as well. As
a garnish to the products of the
field, so half a dozen varieties of corn
on the cob appear,, while rice in the
sheath, and threshed, oats, peas, etc.,
are in abundance.
The manufacture of syrup, from
both the native grown cane and the
Japanese ribbon cane, has an impor-
tant space, the article being from J. C.
Pillans of Electra, who makes a spe-
cialty of fine syrup. The cane is
shown in the stalk as well. In fact,
while t the syrup tack, the displays
of preserves put up by the thrifty
housewives of the county adds a zest
and not an unimportant part of the
exhibit. Canned vegetables, notably
from Cam & Co., of Reddick, find
space as well, the company in ques-
tion marketing some 25,000 cans of
this luscious vegetable every year.
Honey there is also, comb upon comb
of it. while delicious country butter,
some score of pats of it. add a dash
of golden yellow among the dark
browns, and ruby colors of the pre-
serve jars. Home cured meats are
an appetizing display as well.
As has been noted. Marion county
is the original home of the phosphate
industry, Dunnellon being the center
of some of the largest mines in the
state. Phosphate is exhibited, while
lime from the Florida Lime Company
of Ocala show the other mineral pos-
sibilities of the county.
Of woods, some forty-five different
kinds are on exhibition, among them
being the live, red and white oak,
hickory, magnolia, much used in fin-
ishing furniture, and the ever-pres-
