It was determined that it should be

thai outside counties and outsiders
generally would be invited to make
exhibits, but would not be allowed to

The meeting was enth-usiastic and
optimistic from start to finish, and it
may be set down as a fact that Marion
will have a fair next November that
will be a revelation and a gratification
to every citizen of the county.


Some days ago a number of negro
children found hid away in a clump of
palmetto bushes nearly all of the
goods that were stolen from the
Globe store, :;ie robbery being noted
in these columns at the time. The of-
ficers of the law requested that no
publicity be given to the recovery of
the goods. as it was not positively
certain that the real thieves had been
caughtt, although they were appre-
honded at the time. Deputy Hutson
went down to Juliette Saturday, but
nllidel no IInw discoveries. It is Lnow
h!olive'd that Huck Mliddleton an.!
Haerdie Williams, whom they caught

Nearly all of the goods were recover-

deed. and Mr. Goldman is a very hap-
py man.

The following original letter, writ-
ten from Atlanta to a party in Ocala,
gives the very latest fashion sugges-
Dear Cynthia:
Such a round of gayeties you never
could imagine-morning, noon and
night; luncheons, teas, dinners and
dances, and 0, there are so many chic
things everywhere. First, let me tell
you about a French reception I went
to yesterday. It was given by the
French Club here, and only French
was to be spoken. You know there
is a great rage now for German and
French both, and yop really aren't
fashionable unless you speak one or
the other. Well, it was most amus-
ing. Everybody would come in with
their carefully prepared little speech,
stammer it out, and then, with a sigh
of relief, lapse into English. There
were songs and extracts of plays giv-
en in French by the various members,
"la belle longue" being appreciated
to the utmost. You know I enjoyed
it after staying so long in Paris.
And there were some awfully pretty
gowns, too, everything directoire.
mostly satins and some cloths, one
especially I remember that could be
worn either day or night. It was old
rose satin, very short waisted, with
yoke and sleeves of net. the same col-
or as the gown. The waist was made
with reverse back and front. The
skirt was slit on the side and cut
across the front downward from the
slit side half way up the skirt to the
hem on the other side. giving the
apron effect, which is so much worn
right at present. Where it was cut
away, chiffon was let in. It Nwas em-
broidered in large silk thrread of the
same shade at least, shading into old
rose, the embroidery following the
hem of the apron effect, running into
the real hem, and also on the lapels
-say. you can embroider, why r.on't
you try something like this). And
with this long, graceful robe was
wvor a large black satin hat, lined
with ,old rose and a wreath of large
hat roses around the crown. 0, it was
s'ulnninlg! And a hat there was too de-
iicious for worls--I wanted it so. It
\was mushroom shan', all around, ex-
c.'pt on the left side. where it rolled
pw\ard, the only trimming being a
plii;n,' of the sanre shade, circling the
!lf; side, lIeginning in front under a
i;arg'e s'tel buckle andl dropping off
the back-C'etait un reve.
Pb fore I forget it. let me tell you
i1." latest berath from Paris. for the
-p ing: Striped skirt and plain jack-
et. especially black coats made on the
ilir'ctoire lines, and black and white
lAipld skirts and hat to match-too
chic for words. And with all of the
winter suits, as with the spring suits,
the collars and jabots play a large
role. The daintiest I have seen were
made of linen lawn, very fine. The
collar was very high, made of one-ply
goods, scalloped top and bottom with
white linen thread embroidery dots,
not heavy, scattered over it. With
this collar, the jabot was made on the
same order, edge scalloped and dots
an inch and a half apart, along the
edge. Where the jabot Joins the col-
lar is a satin bow of any color to
match your suit-I shall make me a
set. They don't take much time, but
it saves you lots of money, as all of
these little accessories are expensive,
but they are, invaluable to a well
dressed girl or woman.
Well, my dear, I must stop, as I am

Stanton. Fla., March lo, 9l'O.
To ih.- Editor Ocala Banner:
I have boon a citizen of Marion
county. Fla.. for twenty-two -years. I
never took any part in politics, never
asked for any office nor trie'l to con-
rol or influence anllbody's vote, ex-
Cept niy own. which is democrat" to
hle core. but since our legislators
seemi to want to know the people's
views on what is wanted and needed.
Swish to call their attention to a mat-
er which 1 have not seen mentioned
by anyone in their suggestions and
The matter is the injustice done to
he poor man in making assessments.
and nothing else will be as great a
benefit to the small property owners
:han a change on that line.
It is an impossibility for one man
to make a just assessment over a
whole county. He is bound to take
he word of some one else, and there-
by violate the obligation he assumes
when he becomes assessor.
There is a remedy. Let each pre-
cinct have an assessor, whose bound-
en duty it is to go all over the pre-
cinct and see the property he is un-
der obligation to pass judgment upon
as ,o its value, and make every prop-
erty owner swear to what his prop-
erty consists of.
I think if our legislators could
bring about a change on that line
they will have done a great thing,
in bringing the poor man on an equal
footing with the rich. or owners of
large properties. who do not pay 25
per cent. as much according to valua-
tion as the man with only a small
lot with a hut on it.
A change in our laws that will
bring about equality in paying taxes
with the rich and the poor alike, res-
idents or non-residents, will be worth
more and appreciated by more than
fifty prohibition acts, which will nev-
'r h1-w lived up to.

A stranger visiting our city yvster-
day said that Ocala presented the
cleanest and thriftiest appearance of
any town he had seen in the state-
unless it was Gainesville. There
seems to be, he said. a friendly rival-
ry to out-do one another, and it was a
very few places that he had seen that
were not engaged in beuatifying their
grounds and enlarging and ornament-
ing thehi. homes. The public build-
ings, too, were kept in a manner to
show that the town and county offi-
cials were proud of them, and had an
eye for the beautiful. He added that
it made a very great and pleasant im-
pression, and everywhere he goes in
the state he hears a good word spok-
en for Ocala. He gave our town a
very pretty compliment, and we hope
that this friendly rivalry will be kept
up until indeed. aixd in fact. we st* ,
have the very nicest town in Florida.
We are making it a "city beautiful"
and we must not cease our efforts.

A few more year and the charging
columns of traic will have stormed
the ancient battlements of the sacred
city, and the steady stream of gain-
seekers will low on, unimpeded by its
barrier. Already the beer gardens,
the dance halls, the baseball and foot-
ball teams, the railroads and the
newspapers drive right through its
hallowed precincts. Already the busy
contractor in the great city makes
th- hammers ring while the church
bells chime. Well, I am an old-fash-
ioned man-simple in some things, I
reckon. God knows I am little fitted
to sermonize, but I am not ashamed to
say that I feel a profound reverence -r
for that old land-mark-the Sabbath
day. To see it go down under the L
hurrying feet of mere selfish money
hunters would, in my eyes. be a far- i '
reaching calamity. This is said in no
spirit of narrow sectarianism. Far
from it. But I believe a periodical
rest day is so very needful to the
world; so trun an ,economy of i.me. /
o(f t iergy. of strength; so moral and i
,,le-vating in all its tondencites, that
inere religion entirely removed Irom
bt debate. I woull. as a law-maker,
tote to compel a weekly halting of i
the human hordes.
I have read somewhere that in
crossing the plains, in the emigrant
lays. the teams which halted for 2618
Sunday always caught up with, and 261
then passed, those which had trayr-
eled on without the halt. I do not
doubt that such would be the case in
any similar test. The French repub-/ ,
lic. in its general reforms, undertook
to eliminate the seventh day Sabbath
and to make every tenth day the Sun-
day. instead. Historians tell us that /
the attempt was a failure: that men / '
and beasts wore away under the I
lengthened strain, and 'that France / /i J
had to return to the old seventh day
rest. "

The Coat Mania
Coats will be 'the thing" this sea-
son. and as warm weather approach-
es, pongee, light-weight silk or lace
will be used. The only style snown
as yet in the way of an independent
outer garment is a dressy, black satin
coat, trimmed solely by satin-covered
buttons, and collar and cuffs of Ori-
ental embroidery. As a matter of
course, silk coats will follow at a la-
ter date. Some very elegant cloth
dresses have crocheted lace coats in
exactly the same shade, but these are
beyond the reach of any but the rich.
The majority of skirts are cut circu-
lar with inverted plaits at sides and
back, closing at the left side by a slot
seam. Trimmings up the front of the
skirt, or a panel, are both coming into

Lace Waists
Th'e sweetest of lace' waist? are'
those of iBrussels net, with silk eni-
broitld'red dots about the size of a
three-cent piece. and when white and
lavender dots alternate, the effect is
charming. The Marie Antoinette cfhu
is in high repute, and as few %,omen
are blessed with handsome shoulders
and arms, in these days of tight
sleeves, an accessory which breaks
the outline and softens the ensemble
is to be welcomed. The severe effect
of the 'tight sleeve is lessened by a
ruffle at both sides or by a narrow
lace panel with frills and lace stiaps
across, the sleeve.
Spring Millinery
Colored straws in both fine and
coarse weaves are in especial favor,
the crowns of some being so high and
so broad that they border on absurd-
ity. The larger proportion have nar-
row brims, turning downward, and
come in several shades of pink, blue,
crimson and Tuscan yellow, trimmed
with rosebuds and moss. or with
small roses and tiny blue flowers,
cherries depending from foliage or
moss. or ribbon is draped around the
crown, with a cluster of loops so large
that it seems to take up about half
the hat.

The Pure Food and Household
Economics day at the Woman's Club
aroused so much interest that it was
decided to continue the subject
throughout the month.
Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock Dr.
E. Van Hood will give a practical
talk on "Flies and Mosquitoes" and
it is hoped that all who can will come
to hear him. whether members of the
elul) or not. The sanitary committee
of the city council is especially in-
vited to be present. This subject is
one that means so much to the wel-
fare of our community, and it is a
great privilege to hear from one who
has given the matter so much study
and thought.
Th.' following Friday, March 19th.
Prof. Rou;zahn will be here with his
tuberculosis exhibit and we will give
the day to that. and the next Friday
we :opt,' to have one or more talks
from oir local physicians on other
>u-i'j, (.s of vital importance.

Coffee ranks next to whiskey in
evil effects on man in the drinking
line. It contains a poison which is to
be found in the physician's poison
cabinet, along with strychnine, laud-

drinking coffee and one was drinking
tea. At a boarding house I noticed

six drinking coffee, one drinking tea
and one was drinking water.

their babies coffee, and foster the de-
sire in them for the stimulant. They

the best and is the home of the or-

age of wild trees in this county before
they were budded with the sweet.

county, being near the basing lpoint

a well known fact that any fruit, veg-
etable or grain grown nearest to the
danger line of cold is always the most
perfect, firmest and best shipper. It
applies to apples, potatoes and wheat.
It also applies to the orange. This
county is the farthest north of any
county in the state of the orange
growing section, and while there are
more risk from Jack Frost here than
further south, still there are In or-
,anges grown in the state that ct.i in

ing the elector's privileges.
3. Said committee has prescribed
a regulation in conflict with the reg-
istration law of the state, namely, a
change in the time for registration,
making it six months earlier than re-
quired by law.
4. Said committee has further pre-
scribed 'that no person shall be voted
for who is not of the white race, thus
violating Articles XIV. and XV. of the
constitution of the United States.
5. The regulations further provide
that the person chosen for each office
shall be the choice of the majority of
the whole number of persons voting
therefore. whereas the state law pro-
\'ides for an election by plurality.
In addition to the foregoing -'alid
grounmis of objection to 'the right of
\Allert ilchrist to the office of gov-
,rnor otf the -tate of Florida are the
I'i! owing:

The present administration has al-
Iso be distingused by the revival
of the convict-labor trade, namely, the
sale of the forced laoor of convicts,
of both the white and colored races,
by the preceding administration by a
continuance of the sale, a notable in-
stance being the case of the sale (en
masse) by the alleged governor of
the aforesaid convict labor to persons
belonging to the democratic primary,
and the re-sale for an alleged advance
of $100,000 to persons interested in
the phosphate and turpentine camps.
Your petitioner further respectfully
submits that if the senate of the Unit-
ed States be constituted of persons
chosen by the means herein describ-
ed, the way is provided for the over-
throw of the government of 'the U'nit-
eil States, to preserve which, so great
a sacrifice of human lives and taxable
resources has been made.
Your petitioner also submits to your
honorable body that this great scheme
of our national government of coordi-
Snate power, legislative, executive and
j judicial. in which the suprnee legis-
lative power has been vested in a
sellate and house of representatives,
has conveyed to your honorable itody
th' sole power of determining the
qualifications and return of its niem-
bers (Act ;, Art. 2), and that the ex-
erci3e of its supreme prerogative is
the only means by which the people of
the Inited States, in this particular,
have for the protection of their slate
Your petitioner further shows that
the said election laws of the state of
Florida are all of them made under
the influence of a primary election
and really constitute a treasonable
conspiracy against the constitution
and form of government established
by it and intended to be perpetual:
that the pretenses under which this
is done are in themselves plainly un-
reasonable and void; that it is com-
monly contended by its advocates
that treason when committed by a
party or a combination of men is not
unlawful. but may be done with inm-
pnitny: that the provisions of tli pri-
mary law which require ( a!l I)(prsons
\-ting in the p)rinlaries to be Iound
ly the' resolutions of thei party are,
only par t resolutions amil I h'rl"or
are not within the terns of thf, con-
.l iitition; that is to say I1i', political
party may organize a rebellion and
revolution or adopt a nullificationi or
secession platform and bind its tnem-
Ihers to it and yet not be within the
provisions of the constitution.
Your petitioner respectfully sntows
that eletcions in Florida to the gis-
lature are made under this primary.
and the members elected are peldged
to vote for no one but one subject to
the primary law and pledged to violate
the constitution and are permitted to
vote for no one but the person who
is pledged to vote for none but a
white man. and a white man who is
subject to the primary law and him-
self pledged to vote for no one who
has not paid his contribution as a
candidate to the committee.
Your petitioner further shows that
under the provisions of this fraudu-
lent and unconstitutional law more
than two-thirds of the people of Flor-
ida are disfranchised of their legal
rights and prevented and forbidden
from voting; that the election in
which D. I'. Fletcher claims to have
been elected by mieu themselves
pledged to a doctrine of nullification
and secession; and that the said D U.
Flet'chc'r was an active siipport'r of

:h.' treasonable doctrine of nullifica-
lion and secession by a pIrimary. clainl-

Your petitioner submits to your
honorable body that the evil influence
upon the people and the whole body
politic by the substitution of the Ro-
man form of consular government, es-
tablished in Florida by the aforesaid
corporation, is shown in the policies
adopted and which has culminated in
the appointment of D. U. Fletcher by
the alleged governor. Albert Gilchrist.
The administration of the said Al-
bert Gilchrist has been distinguished
by another marked violation of the

Outlines His Policy-Will Uphold thi
Party Orzanization
In a letter to J. D. Johnson, chali
man of the democratic executive com
mittee of LaFayette county, Governo
Gilchrist says:
"I am advised that a vacancy ha;
occurred in the office of the clerk o
the circuit court of LaFayette county
occasioned by the death of Hon. Mil
ton J. Bryan.
"In making an appointment to fil
such vacancy, it is my desire to hav<
recommendation from the county
democratic executive committee o1
LaPayette county, which recommend
dation shall be made at a public meet
ing of said committee held after ful
and sufficient public notice given
each member of the committee, ol
the time and place of meeting to be
held. lin this connection I wish to
say that it is of the greatest impor
tance that there be as full a meeting
of the committee as it is practicable
to have by giving proper notice to
each member. A recommendation by
a small number of the committee
would very probably be disregarded.
Nor is it desired 'hat the recommen-
dation be 'made by a hare quorum of
the committee.
"I state the matter thus plainly and
fully because embarrassment has been
caused in a similar case recently com-
ing from another county.
"My policy will be to recognize the
executive committees in making ap-
pointments of this nature, but it must
he understood distinctly that such rec-
ommnendations from a committee must
he made at public niettings of the
committee of which each member has
full and timely nptice of the place
and hour of the committee's meeting.
"A copy of this letter is being mail-
ed to each member of your county ex-
ecutlive committee. and I tr!ist that a
meeting will be called as above indi-
cated. a' yonr earliest convonience.

There is nothing quite so pretty in
this world as love between a mother
and daughter. When we hear that a
girl is coming home from school after
an absnece of several months, we us-
ually go to the depot to see her moth-
er hug her. There is something a lit-
tle funny about love between man
and wife, and there is something not
exactly perfect about the love be-
tween mother and son. but the love
between a mother and daughter is us-
ually just right.-Atchison Globe.

In the first fortnight of his tenure

he will begin the redemption of his'
campaign promises. He pledged him-j
self to call a special session of con-
gress for the specific purpose of re-
vising the tariff, and on the fifteenth
of this month, the sixty-first congress
will assemble in that extra session.
What the result of its deliberations
will be it is impossible to foretell, of
course. To be quite candid, the indi-
cations are that the advocates of a
tariff for revenue only have but little
to hope for. But it is at least a good
augury that this, the most important
of Mr. Taft's campaign promises, is
about to be redeemed so far as it lies
specifically in his power to redeem it.!
