(Written for the Ocala Banner.)
If no one knew that you and I
Performed the loving deed;
If no one knew whose hand supplied
The wants of those in need;
If no one knew and no one cared
Whether we of our bounty spared.
(Save One who dwells in heaven
Woud we perform the deed of love?
If no one knew or praised our name.
Would we perform it just the same?
If friends should doubt and miscon-
The motives of the good we do, i
And persecute us day by day
By all that they could do or say:
If censure, in her scorn, should rise.
Our every effort to despise:
If grief and sorrow also came,
And grave suspicions brought our
Down low to whisperings of shame,
Would we perform the loving deed,
And help supply the brother's need?
Rather than shirk our Master's work,
Would we a thorny path pursue?
Would you and I prefer to die
Rather than be untrue?
Would we count everything but loss
And glory ewkr- in the cross
Of Jesus, c6 d?
And would c_4- frts be satisfied
And still det ^iis will to do.
If no one saw and no one knew?
Ah, wherein dwells the sweet desire.
What motives do our work inspire?
Would you and I so joyful be
If there were none to know or see.
And none to praise the good we do?
Would you and I be just as true.
If no one knew?

Dr. Palmer and Miss Hungerford,
who are occupying Mrs. Brown's
house for the winter, were capsized in
a rowboat off Weir Park during a re-
cent bit of rough weather. The doc-
tor undertook to sh4ft his position in
the skiff when he lost his balance
and went overboard. In attempting
to pull him in the boat was capsized
in deep water. The boatman and his
two passengers managed to keep
afloat by holding on to the boat, and
they had worked their way to shallow
water about the time Capt. Russell
arrived to rescue them.
Col. John A. Martin was a guest at
Blair Villa Sunday. This was his
first visit to Lake Weir since the old-
en days when he was a prominent res-
ident here. He was greatly pleased
at the palpable evidence of thrift and
progress, and was delighted with
beautiful Woodmar, which in its fine
growth of fruit and ornamental trees
is rewarding the expenditure of work
and money which Mr. Woodrow has
made the past few years.
At the silver tea held by tLe La-
dies' Auxiliary, on invitation of Mr.
and Mrs. Goodwin at The Oaks last
Saturday afternoon, the handsome
sum of $66.22 was added to the chapel
building fund. The lakeside was
well represented. Mrs. Woodrow
sent the Chicago over for a load of
Weirsdale people, Mr. W. H. Bickley
brought a load over in the Mamle B,
Dr. Henry reported with a large con-
tingent from Oklawaha, and Mr. Hol-
der brought an auto load of people
from Oclaa.

struggled for fifty years before it
reached an enrollment of one hundred

students. It took Princeton one hun-

Rollins and Stetson
Rollins College, in the twenty4three
years of Its existence, reached a to-

students of a like grade as those per-

Stetson University, with its magnifi-

in the twenty-one years of its exist-
ence. from 1887 to 1908, reached a
like enrollment of fifty-six. The
West Florida Seminary. in the forty
years of its existence, reached an en-

To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Regret to learn through Friday's
Weekly Banner that the Hon. Alfred
is still suffering from that attack of
indigestion wnicn, now, seems to be
complicated with biliousness. The
attack seems to have been brought
on by his failure to assimilate Three
Stars, plus a skunk.
Now, I knew the Hon. Alfred would
eat a crow, for I heard him admit it
from "the stump," but I did not think
he would try to devour a skunk, and
try the strenuous methods of dis-
lodging him that he admits he tried.
Now, my illustrious friend, don't get
a further complication and go into
So you have decided to quit, have
you? Well, I think it is time; at-least
until you get control of your nervous
system. If you can't stand criticism
keep oprt of public print.
Now. my friend, during the sixteen
years I have known you we have talk-
ed frequently on many subjects, and
always good naturedly, even though
we did not agree. During this time
I have listened to your political


When the present constitution was
adopted, Article XIX. of that instru-
ment, which provides for local option
in this state, was bitterly fought by
every liquor man in the state.-Madi-
son Enterprise-Recorder.
Let's get this right. We are not de-
fending -the liquor people, but it is a
fact that the present Article XIX., at
the time of its adoption, was fought
by the temperance people of the state.
The result was that Judge J. Wof-
ford Tucker and Judge J. G. Speer of
Orange county, made a strong fight
for its adoption. It was a compromise
measure in the constitutional conven-
tion, and the latter distinguished
Floridian was the author of it.-Lake
City Index.
Were it not for the memory of Col.
J. H. Ancrum and Rev. J. N. Reid.
both long since deceased, we would
have no comment to make on the
foregoing from the Index.
The facts are that Hamilton coun-
ty. was the first county in the state
to abolish saloons and this it did in
isS:., two years before Article XIX.,
was adopted. It was brought about
by the united efforts of 'Col. J. H. An-

A mill for the manufacture of
cockle-burr soap has been established
at Natchez, Miss., and is being oper-
ated on such an extensive scale that
it is said carloads of cockle-burr
weeds are being shipped to it daily.
It is indeed gratifying to learn that
the despised cockle-burr can be put
to a more useful purpose than that of
tangling a cow's tail so she can lam-
bast the noses off those who attempt
to milk her. If cockle-burrs make su-
perior soap there is a fortune in store
for some inhabitafits hereabouts.-

Ia 18M0, eleven years before the out-
break of the civil war, In ls seat in
congress, Mr. Horace Mann of Massm
chusetts predicted that If there should
be a civil war between the north and
the south, it would be difficult to ex-
aggerate the immediate evils which
would befall the interests of New
Eagland and other parts of the north.
That its commerce and manufactures
would suffer at least a temporary de-
rangement, but that that picture
would be as nothing in comparison
with the occurrences at the south.
Here he believed that the chains of
slavery were so galling and that the
negro was so rampant for freedom
that every one of them would become
an incendiary with a torch in his
hand; and the south would be lurid
with its midnight flames.
In a little more than a decade from
the time this speech was delivered
the war was upon us, but there was
no derangement of the manufactures
of the north; but instead they became
more busy than at any other period
in their history. The owners had re-
inforced themselves for the emergen-
cy and the contract for furnishing
supplies for the army. clothing, tents,
blankets, saddles, harness, wagons,
food and provisions, was a God-send
to the farmers and manufacturers of
the north. No factory was idle, and
the price of every product of the farm
was multiplied and turned into gold
dollars. There was a revival of every
industry, the printing presses were
set to work printing greenbacks and
bonds, which passed current and
flooded the country, and poverty im-
mediately put on the shoes of opu-
So far as concerns money-making,
there never was such a time before
nor since.
How was it at the south? Mr. Hor-
ace Mann's prediction was as wide of
the mark here as at the north. The
negro did not prove to be an incen-
diary with a torch in his hand.
Through it all he was docile, faithful
and obedient. This was owing to the
moral and religious instruction he had
received. The slave owners of the
south joined the army and hurried to
the front, leaving the women at home
to manage the farms, and that the
negroes would prove unfaithful, and
burn. pilfer and debauch, never for a
moment disturbed their sleeping nor
waking hours.
There never were such crops grown
before nor since. They were so abun-
dant that many good people saw in
them the hand of Providence. The
women andT negroes of the south not
only fed the armies of the Confeder-
acy. but in a large measure the Fed-
eral army as well, and be it said to
the credit of the institution of slav-
ery that the religious and moral les-
sons the owners instilled into the
slaves were so great, so ingrained.
permeating their natures so entirely
and completely. that throughout the
civil war period they committed no
inccndiaryism and no crimes that now
disgrace our annals and disturb our
peace of mind.


With due deference to the consoli-
dated and combined wisdom of the
press of Florida, the Times desires
to remark that the relative prices of
Tampa-made cigars and quarts of ker-
osene have nothing to do with the ac-
tion of the Standard Oil Company in
violating the laws. Because people
can be made happy and comfortable
by smoking two-tor-a-quarter Tampa
cigars and do so fix themselves nu-
merously is no ground for permitting
the Standard to break the law at its
pleasure. Still less does it justify a
high federal court in such rulings as
forbid the government to prove the
guilt of the culprit.
But desiring to keep the peace with
the leadership of the Florida press,
the Times will not attempt any dis-
cussion of the matter further than to
return its thanks for the recognition
of the superior value of a Tampa ci-
gar to a quart of kerosene, and to
suggest that if the aforesaid cigars
spouted out of the ground like petro-
leum the men who tried to monopo-
lize them would find extermination
their immediate lot. The human race
would not stand for it. and by com-
mon consent these inimitable bless-
ings are spread broadcast over the
earth at a fair and reasonable and
satisfactory price-free to all who
have? the fixed price, without rebates
or discrimination or favoriism of
any kind whatever. And also to sug-
gest that the average clear Havana
cigar finds itself joyously collecting
and remitting a higher price than a
whole gallon of kerosene. It must
not be taken as perosnal when we
say that an editor who connects cigar
values and kerosene values on ihe
quart-unit-basis is vitally uninformed
en the proportion of things. Tampa
cigars and kerosene are on a whole-
sale basis fairly matched in price one
cigar to one gallon.-Tampa Times.
Neither corporations nor individu-
als should violate the laws with im-
punity. but both individuals and cor-
porations should be given a fair trial
and be pronounced guilty by compe
tent courts of jurisdiction before be-
ing pronounced as malefactors.
The case against the Standard Oil
Company failed for want of proof.
In the case in question it was very
clearly established, at least to un-
prejudiced investigators, that the case
against it arose on account of an
error of a rate clerk in a railway of-
fice. and the setting aside of the sen-
sational fine which followed awaken-
ed very little surprise in any quarter.
The difference between kerosene
oil and a Tan.pa cigar is that one in-
dustry wa< built up by its own merit
: tI(! t.Le other by special favoritism
of the government. The latter has
been made possible in face of the
democratic contention of "all rights
for all and special privileges for
The Times says that if the Tampa
cigars spurted out of the ground like
petroleum, the men who tried to mo-
nopolize them would find extermina-
tion their immediate lot; that the hu-
man race would not stand for it; 'that
by common consent these inimitable
blesisngs are spread broadcast over
the earth at a fair. reasonable and
satisfactory price, which the Times
places at a sum equal to a gallon of
kerosene oil for one cigar.

There are a great many cases, how-
ever, where it is impossible to keep
wood submerged in water, or in an
absolutely air-dry condition. In fact,
a large percentage of the timber
which is used is exposed to the
weather, and is subjected to decay.
because it contains enough air and
enough water for the decomposing or-
ganisms to get a foothold. Decay is
most serious where the atmosphere is
warm and damp. because these con-
ditions are most favorable for its de-
velopment. In the coal mines of
Pennsylvania tim'-er decays in two
or three years, because the tempera-
ture is warm and constant and the
air is damp. And in the south, the
warm. humid atmosphere often es the timber to rapidly decompose.
Decay may be prevented by two
general methods, by treating the wood
with antiseptics, thus poisoning the
food supply of the organisms which
cause decay and hy treating it with
oils which r'nder it watctrproof. A
combination of these two nmethods is
most commonilly used, as when uood
is treated with croosc--, which hills

Piles driven by the hut dwellers of
tlfe Baltic centuries ago are as sound
today as when first placed. The wood-
en ccfflns in which the Egyptians bur-
ied their dead are i-.ill preserved in
perfect condition, after thousands of
years of service. -
The longevity of timber under these
two extremes of climate and moisture
conditions has naturally made peo-
ple ask. "What causes wood decay?"
The answer is. fungi and bacteria,
low forms of plant life which live in
the wood and draw their nourishment
from it. The little organisms are so
little that a microscope is required to
see them, yet their work results in
the destruction of billions of feet of
timber each year, and the railroad
corporation, with its crosstie bill run-
ning up into seven figures, and the
farmer who spends a hundred or so
dollars a year foi fence posts are
alike drawing upon the knowledge of
experts in all parts of the world in
efforts to learn the most economical
andl most satisfactory method of pre-
serving wood against the inroads of
decay. In studying the means of pre-
venting decay wood-preserving ex-
perts have learned many things about
the obnoxious fungi which says the
life of timber.
The small organisms can grow
either in light or total darkness, but
all of them requfre requisite amounts
of air, food, moisture and heat. If
one or more of these essential require-
ments is lacking they cannot live, and
the decay of timber will not take
place. Wood constantly submerged
in water never rots, simply because
there is an insufficient supply of air.
This condition accounts for the sound-
ness of the old Baltic piles. On the
other hand, if wood can be kept air
dry it will not decay. because there
will then be too little moisture. The
timber used by the Egyptians will
last indefinitely, s( long as i't is bone-

In January a few thousand peons

were placed at work paving the
Wareets; prisons were thrown open
and there was a mild spasm of busi-

influx of office-seekers and their de-

sprang up like mushrooms and bab-
bled of the grand new .era that was
now in the full flush of a glorious
dawn after the night of Castro's op-
pressive dominion.
Today the optimism is a little lad-
ed. The glorious colors of the dawn
are turning to a sicklier tint.
The revolutionary factionists, exil-
ed and harmless under Castro, have
returned and are clamoring for their
share of the profits of patriotism.

ministration is facing demands for

composed oi twelve members, seven
to be chosen from the membership of
the house of representatives and nve'
from the senate. The members ap-
point, d by the speaker of the house
of r-.presentatives are Theo. E. Bur-
ton of Ohio; D. E. Alexander of New
York, William Lorimer of Illinois, F,
C. Stevens of Minnesota, I. P. Wan-
ger of Pennsylvania, S. M. Sparkman
of Florida and John A. Moon of Ten-
nessee. The following senators were
appointed by the vice president: J. H.
Gallinger of New Hampshire, S. H.
Piles of Washington, William Alden
Smith of Michigan, F. H. Simmons of
North Carolina and James P. Clarke
of Arkansas.
This commission was established in
response to the very wide demand for
the greater development of our wa-
terways for which the national rivers
and harbors congress stands, and with
a view to making recommendations
for a policy which should be at the
same time comprehensive and accom-
plish the greatest resuls at the least
cost, and with a view to the careful
selection of the rivers and channels
to be improved.
This commission differs from the
inland waterways commission, creat-
ed by President Roosevelt two years
since ,in several important particu-
lars. In the first place, the inland
waterways commission was appoint-
ed. and its duties defined, in a l; ter I

two dead bodies, one that of a beauti-
ful young woman of about 18 years
of age, the other that of a man of,

The Sanford Herald says that in an
article in the Hartford (Conn.) Daily
Courant, entitled, "Dreams of Avar-
ice," a few statements are published
from Sanford celery growers. These
statements refer to last year's crops
principally, which did' not bring good
prices, on account of the panic that
prevailed at the time.
While some of the statements
seem overdrawn to the readers, the
people of this section can verify ev-
ory one of them. and the crops this:
year would show a much better state-
ment. Following is a list of them as
they appear in the Daily Courant:
"I have made $50.0i04 in five years
growing celery and lettuce in San-!
ford. I have made money every year.:
I do not know of one absolute, cold
failure among Sanford celery grow-
ers. If some men make loss than j
thev sho-ild. there is some good rea-
sun for it."-A. T. Rosseter.

A New York special says that with
merchant tailors gathered from all
parts of the United States, the Amer-
ican style and fashion show opened
in New York yesterday and will con-
tinue until Friday. One well known
tailor sums up the prediction for sum-
mer styles as follows:
"The mode third summer will be
plain, soft, well-tailored garments.
There will be no gingerbread effects.
While some tailors stick to the col-
lege styles and make snappy stuff,
the men who pay $85 and up for suits
want the money to show in real tail-
oring, not in gewgaws."
There are startling garments
among the exhibits. Among them are
an evening coat made with "hips;"
the "Taft' 'overcoat, which contains
enough cloth for a small circus tent,

place. The people are kind and ap-
preciative. Our parsonage is comfor-
table and convenient. We often
speak of our good friends in Florida
and though so far separated from

'face to face' again. It was Mr. Rich-
ard who led so well in the 'In Memor-
iam' service at Jacksonville last year,
and later on reluctantly gave up his
work of state quiet hour superintend-
ent when the Lord called them to ser-
vice in Pennsylvania.
In February the Christian church
workers in Jacksonville had a delight-
ful evening when the program, "Our
Damon Boys," was carried out by the
members of the society. Christian'
church Endeavorers are intimate
friends of their missionaries and na-
tive students in India and other mis-
sion fields, thus it is a pleasure to
aid them in spreading the gospel to
those who know it not.
The sunshine circle pf Christian
Endeavor continues to at least add a
few sunbeams when opportunity
comes. In recent weeks many greet-
ings of congratulation have been
written for weddings, birthdays and
other happy events. Some of our
comrades have had severe illness in
their homes. Messages of sympathy
were sent a. father bereaved of his
oldest son; a son his mother, and for
the "going home" of another mother,
leaving a lonely daughter. There
were also the deaths of two fathers,
one of good old age, and the other
in the prime of noble Christian ser-
vice. Sunshine work as a part of
the state union is very new and there-
fore with but little past history, but
there is a beautiful future coming.

Gilmore, Fla.
At the funeral of George T. Angell,
Alone I walked the ocean strand;
A pearly shell was in my hand;
I stooped and wrote upon the sand
My name-the year-the day.
As onward from the spot I passed,
One lingering look behind I cast,
A wave came rolling high and fast,
And washed my little lines away.
And so, methought, 'twill shortly be
With every mark on earth for me;
A wave of dark oblivion's, sea
Will sweep across the place
Where I have trod the sandy shore
Of time and been, to be no more,
Of me-my day-the name I bore,
To leave no track nor trace.

100,000,000 years, and still by others
of later time It is placed at 10,000,000

Other planets go through the same
processes. The reason that other

More than nine out of every ten
cases of rheumatism are simply rheu-
matisqi of the muscles, due to cold or
damp weather or chronic rheuma-
tism. In such cases no internal treat-

that is needed, and it is certain to
give quick relief. Give it a trial and
see for yourself how quickly it re-
lieves the pain and soreness. Price,

sated in his split-hottom chair. huii-

mis-bul sinner dat I is!"
The youngsters shrieking with
laughter outside, said, and others of
the neighborhood said, that the fleet-
est hound in the settlement could not
have overtaken Brother Dickey on his
wild race for the tall timber! He
used -to complain mightily of the
rheumatism, but he showed no signs
of it then. And when they finally lo-
cated him he was a mile and a half
from the county line, and still going
-weak, but willing to give trouble
the race of its life! It was some
time before they could coax him home
again, and when they did, it was only
to pack up his belonging and depart
for pastures new. And they do say
that Brother Dickey has been super-
stitious about 'possum ever since!-

Lo, this is the season of the year
when the poor man, whose back yard
(in his dreams made to bring forth
succulent lettuce, and the gay radish
and the fragrant onion) looketh like
a cemetery with its little seed envel-
opes on sticks at the ends of rows,
which the poor man has carefully
planted for his future regaling in the
shape of "fresh vegetables that we
grew in our own yard." And the poor
man getteth up in the early dawn. and
hieth him out to the back yard,, and
sees nice little green blades where
there were no blades yestere'en. And
he goeth blithely to his work. and his
heart is filled with peace when it
rains, for he knoweth he will not
have to tote water to the little green
blades when he goeth home. And.
in the evening, he goeth home, and,.
after his frugal meal, he walketh in
his garden. And lo (noi like the tirst

Now. when Brother Dickey was
jeading that 'possum to the sacrifice
be was not aware that two mischiev-
as youngsters of the neighborhood
were following him. or that they had
a UvO 'possum in a secure place near
by. aad had entered into a conspiracy
against him. But so it was.
Brother Dickey placed the well-
browned possumm on the table, survey-
ed him with the eye of appetite, then
mattered: "Now. I'se ready for you.

The Pensacola corespondent of the
Tinies-Union says: "A movement to
drive from Florida what are common-
ly called 'loan sharks' has commenc-
ed in this city. and if the plans of
those who are opposed to loan men
collecting from 100 to 200 per cent.
on their money materialize, the leg-
islaiure. which is to convene in a
short while, will pass a bill prohibit-
ing such a business. Hon. John P.
Stokes. one of the members from this
county to the legislature, has taken
upill the matter actively in this city.
and announces it as his intention to
carry it before the legislature, and
introduce a bill which will drive this
class of business men from tho, state.I
In Pensacola there are about a dozen
loan offices. and it is charged that
in some instances on a loan of $1h,
$161 has been collected in int"'est.
and at the end the furniture and per-
sonal effects of borrowers have been
seized for failure to pay the original
amount, as interest had eaten up all
the moneys paid into the loan com-
pany offices. Mr. Stokes declares

He traveled far through many lands,
He heard the Adriatic roar;
We walked on Egypt's burning sand.;
And stood where Caesar stood of
He viewed the pyramids and sphinx,
And when at last he had come home
He only talked about the drinks
They served in Cairo and in Rome.
She found her way to Ispahen.
She spent a week in far Bombay,
And hurried onward through Japan.
And paused at Melbourne for a (lay.
And, having reached her native shore,
Her only subject, first and last,
Concerned the clothes the women
Within the realms through which
she passed.
Swing de shovel an' de pick,
Good roads coming' soon;

Work, you lazy coon.

Good roads on de way;

Good roads coming' soon;
