EIGHT NEW HOUSES
While strolling around the city on
Sunday afternoon we were surprised
to find eight new buildings on the
beautiful Smith and Dougherty
heights, overlooking the city.
Upon investigation we found that
these buildings are being erected by
Mr. M. Fishel, which is evidence per
se that he has had a prosperous trade
this season, and has not felt the
touch of dull times.
Five of these houses are already
rented, and the others will be just as
soon as he can procure water for
them. The houses are located in a
very beautiful section of the city.
DANCE AT WOODMAR
MR. HARRISON'S FAREWELL SER-
Sunday morning Rev. G. H. Harri-
soh preached his farewell sermon at
Grace church, and it was a- matter of
the greatest regret to all present that
it was Bis last Sunday as rector of
the church. For nearly four years
Mr. Harrison has been the rector of
Grace church, and he is greatly loved
by all who know him. He is young
and in earnest, and has labored very
faithfully for the work of his church
in this city. He has succeeded be-
yond his expectations, and he will be
greatly missed here.
At the conclusion of his sermon
Sunday morning, which was one of
the most earnest that Mr. Harrison
has ever preached in Ocala, and
which contained a message to all, Mr.
Harrison spoke most feelingly of his
work in this city, and asked that the
members of his church keep up the
fight, and to co-operate in every pos-
sible way with, the vestry, and with
whoever is elected to succeed him as
The communion service followed
the sermon, and as an offertory Mr.
Thomas Schreiber sang a very ex-
quisite solo. He has a magnificent
voige and was listened to with a
great deal of pleasure.
On account of his illness Mr. Harri-
son did not attempt to hold any even-
ing service, and the morning service
concluded his work as rector in

membered in this city with a great
deal of love and affection.

Rev. Louis B. Warren of Owens-
boro, Ky., arrived ia Ocala Sunday
afternoon for a short visit with his
Ocala friends. Mr. Warren, for sev-
eral years, was the Baptist pastor in
this city, and was one of the most
popular men that has ever made this
city their home, and his host of
friends are always delighted to have
a visit from him, and his visits here
are made exceedingly pleasant by his
friends. At the Baptist church Sun-
day night Mr. Warren made a brief
talk, and the members of his former
church were charmed to hear him
again. He took occasion to pay a
splendid compliment to our new Bap-
tist preacher, the Rev. H. E. Gabbey,
and also spoke very lovingly of his
residence in this city.

very pleasant surprise party by a
large number of the lady members of
her husband's church. The ladies
went to Mrs. Coleman's about four
o'clock, and her surprise was com-

plan enjoyed immensely her birthday
Mr. and Mrs. John T. Lewis desire
this paper to return their very sin-

wish to emphasize their obligations
to the attending physicians and the
matron and nurses at the hospital.
The friends of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis
will, be glad to learn that the brave
little boy is doing nicely and his re-
covery seems only a question of time.

ONE DOLLAR A YNAS Z
A udtIPmbi Ak
town in the state. Beautiful homes
are building on all her broad streets
which are shaded by the finest. of
live oaks. Ocala is noted for its fine
shade trees. The United States gov-
ernment postofflce building, which is
nearly completed, will add much to
the business portion of the city, and
a new Masonic building and opera
house just started will still add more
to progressive Ocala.
Ocala is one of the progressive cit-
ies of Florida. The majority rf its
citizens are broad in mind and do not
court the fads of bygone years or the
dogmas of the middle ages-hence
Ocala is progressing beyond the av-
erage of Florida cities. The farm
lands in Marion county are of the
best in the state and produce not only
fruits and vegetables but the finest
dairy stock in this country. In proof
of this one has only to visit Palmetto
Stock Farm, owned by Z. C. Chain-
bliss, of the well known banking firm
of this city. Nothing in the live
stock line that is worth looking at is
lacking at this beautiful country
place, two miles from Ocala. C. B.
Strickland is manager of this farm
and from general appearances and
perfect conditions Mr. Strickland de-
serves credit and is certainly a good
There are other things in which
Ocala is supreme, and one and the
foremost- is the soap-nut tree (sapinl
dus mukorossi) owned by J. H. Liv-
ingston, the well known real estate
dealer of Marion county, and Florida
in general. This tree was grown from
seed imported from China twenty-
two years ago and is now one of the
most beautiful shade trees in the
semi-park grounds of Mr. Livingston's
home. Loaded with fruit, yet an or-
nament as to shade and beauty. Mr.
Livingston cannot furnish the de-
mand for seed from this original
American tree, and there is no doubt
but that one of the coming industries
of Florida will be the manufacture of
pure soap from nature's product and
nature's perfection of purity, without
Mr. J. H. Livingston is one of the
Packer's most valued readers, and de
serves every credit for introducing
this soap-nut to the general public.
E. Moulie, the Jacksonville, Fla., per-
fumery manufacturer, is now using
the Ocala soap-nut and is producing a
fine quality of completion soap from
nature's product. The writer has a
sample given him by Mr. Livingston
and can testify to the fact that there
is nothing finer in the soap line.
Among the large growers here,
whom the writer has interviewed up
to now, are J. M. Meffert owner of
"Florida Stock Farms," who shipped
this season 600 baskets of lettuce,
3300 crates of cabbage, 4000 crates of
beans, 7200 crates of cantaloupes, al-
so some 42 cars or more of water-
melons, not mentioned in number. Mr.
Meffert, who is one of the best and
valued readers of the Packer, says:
"Prices for Florida products were not
of the highest, but the season was
profitable as a whole. I thoroughly
enjoy the Packer and the good work
it is doing for the benefit of the

REDDICK NEWS NOTES
Special Cor. Ocala Banner:
The barbecue at Reddick
15th inst., was a reminder of the an-
nual barbecues that were given at
Captain Rou's well years ago, when
everything was bountiful and free,
and everyone in the large crowds that
gathered there from year to year re-
turned home feeling good. But on
last Thursday we missed many of the
old-timers' faces and hearty welcome
that we always met there in those
other years. There were many new
ones to take their places, and true to
the traditions of their ancestors were
on the look-out for strangers to give
them a hearty hand-shake, and make
them feel that they were among
friends. The dinner was all that
could be desired. The meats were
barbecued under the supervision of
Mr. L. M. Sherouse and were season-
ed and cooked to perfection, and when
they, with the many, good things emp-
tied upon the tables from the ladies'
baskets and, boxes, it made a feast fit
for the gods.
Only one thing dampened the spir-
its of Reddick's younger generation,
and that was losing the ball game to
Micanopy by a score of 8 to 5. But
under the circumstances we think

Hood in his extensive trips abroad and
to the Orient were used and to make
merriment a number of burlesques
were introduced. These articles were
placed in the music room, reception

Telegraphic reports from Galves-
ton, Texas, announce that another
big storm has swept that city for the
past few days. The tidal wave which
struck the city is said to have been
as severe as the one which some
years ago laid the city in waste.
The report says, in part;
Ten dead is the total number of
lives lost so far as is known, in the
hurricane which swept over the Gulf
of Mexico and struck Galveston Wed-
nesday morning, and continued until
after midday. While the city of Gal-
veston was held safe against the fury
of the storm by the new $2,000,000 sea
wall, far out on the gulf, on Tarpon
fishing pier, seven miles from the
city, where the storm whipped over
the jetty into the bay, ten persons
were washed from the rocky promon-
tories into the gulf. Boats are search-
ing the bay for the bodies, but so far
have been unsuccessful.
Those drowned were members of a
fishing party and employes of the Tar-
pon pier, marooned on the jetty.
Boats were sent to their assistance,
and it was learned that the house in
which they. had sought refuge had
been washed away.
While it is impossible to get an ac-
curate list of the dead, owing to the
fact that the register has always been
kept at the pier, the best information
obtainable is as follows:
Capt. Bettison and wife.
C. H. Daily, circulation manager
Galveston Tribune, formerly of Chi-
cago, and four negroes.
The others are unknown.
Man's strength and skill were pit-
ted against the fury of the elements
Wednesday, and man won, when the
city of Galveston, safely entrenched
behind her impregnable seventeen-
foot sea wall, withstood, with compar-
atively trifling loss, a tidal wave and
hurricane equal in intensity and de-
structive force to the one which de-
stroyed the city on September 8,
In Galveston and vicinity not a sin-
gle life is believed to have been sac-
rificed, but the material loss is
thought to be quite extensive. The
hurricane swept the entire gulf coast
with an intensity and viciousness that
has seldom been equalled in a coun-
try where destructive storms are not
unusual. It had its origin on the At-
lantic coast and swinging westward
and southward, devastating the entire
gulf coast, even aa far south as Mat-
agorda Bay. That some lives were
lost and that much property was de-
strcyed is the general belief. With
wires down and railroad communica-
tion destroyed, the exact lss is im-
possible to estimate.
TPh. hurricane struck Galveston

T't' w nd, attaining a velocity of near-

RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT
Be it resolved by Marion-Dunn
lodge No. 19, F. & A. M.:
That by the death of our brother,
William Herbert Powers, this lodge
as well as the entire community has
sustained a loss which is felt by all,
not only in the lodge, where he was
loved by every member, but by every
person who knew him.
His professional life was great in
beneficence, he led a home life of ten-
der devotion, his was a character
which was rare in its gentleness,, and
while he is gone he is with us still--
for his sweet memory will cling to us
always. Let us cherish it, keep it
fresh in our minds, forgetting not our
reported brother, whose very presence
cast sunshine, hope and love upon all.
Let us remember that death is but
the gate to life, and find comfort in
the knowledge that so noble, pure and
true a life cannot terminate with the
grave, but will be borne to that Celes-
tial world to which we all hope *o at-
To his bereaved family we extend
our sincere sympathy, assuring them
that our grief is only eclipsed by their
own, and that the friendliness we feel

arrangements with the Commercial

A FERTILIZER FACTORY
Marion county, perhaps, uses iore
fertilizer than any county in this sec
tion of Florida, yet it has no fertilizer
factory, while Gainesville has two,
and there may be others in Alachua
This fact was told to Mr. W. D.
Carn some time ago by the editor of
the Fruit and Truck Grower, and he
was urged to raise a stock company
for the founding of a fertilizer factory
in Ocala. Mr. Cam said that as he
had a little money to invest he would
take the matter under consideration.
The more he thought about It and the
more investigation he devoted to it
the more favorable the project ap-
peared to him, so he went actively
ahead trying to raise funds enough to
establish a stock company, and has
succeeded admirably. No industry in
Plorida has declared larger profits on
the amount of capital invested or has
grown from small beginnings to more
colossal proportions. We sincerely
hope that the one Mr. Carn is trying
to establish will prove no exception to
It will be capitalized at twenty
thousand dollars, and most of the
money, we understand, has been sub-

ly from deadly disease. "If it had not
been for Dr. King's New Discovery,
which cured me, I could not have liv-

ers were well entertained.
Friday evening concerts in the
court house yard are a regular fea-
ture, and when the weather permits
the Metropolitant Band furnishes an
attraction. The program last week
was excellent and hearty encores and
applause attested the pleasure of
those who were there.
The program was as follows:
March, "The Maestro"-R. W.
Selection, "Bohemian Girl"-Balfe.
Japanese Dance and Two-Step,
"Yuki"-Victor G. Kreger.
Overture, "Poet and Peasant" (by

The Last of An Aboriginal and Brave
A few hundred Indians exist today
in a trackless waste near the
the Florida peninsular.
pure-blooded Seminoles, and they rep-
resent all that is left in Florida of a
proud and once powerful nation. Lit-
tle by little they were driven south-
ward, until they reached the limit of
their retreat. Believing that they
had at last found a country which the
pale-face would be unable to pene-
trate they were happy in their seclu-
sion, asking nothing more than to be
left alone. But the march of the white
man kept steadily onward. The
shriek of the iron horse and the awe-
some snort of the steam dredge may
already be heard at the edge of their
domain, to sound the requiem of their
It is a pathetic tableau, this tragedy
being enacted slowly but surely eightt
before us here in the Florida Ever-
glades, for unless some adequate pro-
vision be made for these red men
their fate will soon be sealed. To
send them into the severe climate of
the west would be but a final knife-
thrust after a series of persecutions
extending back to the time when the
white man first placed ,.is foot i.pon
the soil of Florida. To leave them as
they are, without setting apart for
them an ample reservation would
mean their decay, and therefore their
final extermination. A small pre-
serve is held in trust for them, but
seventy-five per cent. of the land is
under water, and the Indians refuse
to occupy it. Were they given a re-
servation of sufficient extent, whose
boundary shall forever be guaranteed
and protected, these Seminoles would
continue to maintain the purity of
their race, increase, and eventually
prove a valuable ally to this country.
Assured of a rigid protection an i ex-
empt from unjust encroachment, they
would cease to look upon the white
man as an enemy, and then the work
of civilization could be carried on
among them to a satisfactory conclu-
sion. All honor is due that little band
of conscientious and unselfish men
and women, who. anticipating the in-
evitable, have made a noble fight for
the rights of these Seminoles.
American magnanimity is famous
the world over. Upon the field of ev-
ery disaster we are found working in
the spirit of Christianity. Long ago,
in the name of justice, we guaranteed
protection to the natives of the small
countries in Central and South Amer-
ica. We have even set aside vast
areas for the perpetuation of bird and
beast (the fact that these preserves
are usually barren wastes offer no
excuse for argument). Yet why do

JUDGE BULLOCK MAKES AN IM-1
Judge W. S. Bullock made a decis-
in chambers yesterday, which will
save the various counties of the state
many hundreds of dollars.
The case was one in which Davis
White was suing-Lake county for the
usual fifty dollars paid for testimony
upon which convictions are secured
against "blind tiger" operators, under
an act of the legislature of 1907.
Attorney George W. Schofield ,f In-
verness represented White, while
Lake county was represented by
Judge J. B. Gaines of Leesburg.
Judge Bullock, after hearing the ar-
guments of the attorneys, decided the
law under which these amounts have
been paid as unconstitutional, and
handed down the following decision:
In the Fifth Judicial Circuit Ciurt,
Lake County, Florida.
Dave White vs. Lake County.
This cause came cn to be head on
argument of demrrrer to the amend-
Section 16, Article 2 of the consti
ution of the state of Florila requires
that "each law enacted in the legis-
lature shall embrace but one subject
and matter properly conn'-eed :here-
with. which subject shall be briefly
expressed in the title."
Section 3556 of the general stat
utes has no suggestion of a r, ward to
be paid to informants or persons fur-
nishing testimony. This feature for
the first time is found in chapter
5690. laws of Florida, amending sec-
tion 3556 of the general statutess .
The title of chapter 5i90 does no'
contain any word or sentence that
would give the least information thaI

the payment of a reward to persons.
furnishing the testimony upon which
a conviction could be had, nor does
it contain any suggestion that the
county would be required to pay for
testimony secured by persons in case
the defendant was insolvent, upon
which a conviction was had. in those
cases where the reward "cannot be
collected from the person or persons
who may be convicted under the pro-
visions" of the said act. Reading this
title no legislator would be put on no-
tice that the "act relative to the sale
of liquors in counties or peroincts vot-
ing against such 'sale" contained any
provisions for the county paying a re-
ward to persons furnishing the testi-
mony. There is nothing "briefly ex-
pressed in the title" that would lead
to such suggestion, or upon which
such legislation could be founded.
Whether it treats of two separate
and distinct subject matters, in that
it treats of the sale of liquors in coun-
ties or precincts voting against such.
sale, and also treat? of the violation
of the revenue statute so as to affect
its constitutionality, we need not now
decide. There are many other points
in the demurrer not necessary to de-
cide. as I think the act unconstitution-
al, as above set out.
It might be void for uncertainty
also. Who is to determine "the per-
son or persons furnishing the testi-

testify before the pet.it Jury entitled
to it? If several testify, which of
these are to be paid the reward-if
more than one how is it divided?. Is
the man who has located the "tiger's
lair" and put the officers intu posses-
sion of the information that secures
their conviction entitled to it? Can
the county commissioners sit on the
question and pass on it? Would that
not be a judicial matter being deter-
mined by them? Especially when sev-

It seems to me, with all due re-
to those who suggest this prop-

it is a tribunal having power to
or sustain the government, al-
h without command of sword or
dation of national authority, in that
it denies to the general government a
power which is, or may become, vital
to the very existence and preserva-
sideration for that tribunal.
Mr. President, that great tribunal,
whose Judgments and decrees deal
with the destiny of 46 sovereign com-
monwealths and with all the plans
and purposes of a great nation, within
whose jurisdiction are found the
But, Mr. President, think of this ar-
gument: Away back, just after the
constitution was adopted, congress
put a tax upon what they then called
"luxuries," or "wealth;" those who
had carriages, and could use them for
their own personal use. Wealth went
to the supreme court of the United
States and tested that proposition,
and said that it was a direct tax un-
der the constitution; but the supreme
court sustained the tax.
We come down to the great civil
war, and the fathers who organized
the republican party-Abraham Lin-
coln, Salmon P. Chase, Charles Sum-
ner and that class of men--again laid
the taxing power upon the wealth of
this country in the form of tax on in-
comes. Wealth went again to the su-
preme court-and did what? Asked
them to reconsider the opinion of fif-
ty odd years before, when they had
settled and said what a direct tax
was. The court passed upon it again.
In a short time the same class of peo-
ple went again to the supreme court;
and, notwithstanding the fact that
there had been a unanimous opinion.
as to what a direct tax was, they
again asked them to reconsider it.
The next time those who were seek-
ing to escape taxation, having three
decisions of the supreme court before
them, they went again to the supreme
court and asked them to reconsider;
and the supreme court, with that pa-
tience and broad-mindedness which
has always characterized that great
tribunal, again went carefully into the
question, reviewed its former decis-
ions, went into the history of the eon-
stitution and its making, and again
told the wealth of this country what
constituted direct taxes. Four times
they had interpreted the constitution
by a unanimous judgment of the court,
but still again they came and asked
the supreme court to once more re-
view its decisions. For nearly one
hundred years, beginning with those
who wrote the constitution of the
United States, down until years after
the clmse of the great war those who
were seeking to escape taxation went
again and again to the supreme court,
and in the face of those decisions,
unanimous as they were, asked for a
review and a reconsideration of the
question. The supreme court, with
patience and care, examined the sub-
ject again in all its ramifications.
Time passed on, and in 1894 another
law was enacted taxing the incomes
of the country, and notwithstanding
the five decisions of the supreme
court defining a direct tax, the untax-
ed wealth and the untaxed incomes of
this country traveled their way to the
supreme court again and asked the
supreme court to review five unani-
mous decisions as to what Is a direct
tax. They succeeded in what? By a
bare majority of one, against the de-
cisions preceding, they succeeded in
establishing a different rule of inter-
pretation. As to that decision Mr.
Justice White says:
My inability to agree with the court
in the conclusions which it has just
expressed causes me much regret.
Great as is my respect for any view
by it announced, I cannot resist the
conviction that its opinion and decree
in this case virtually annuls its pre-
vious decisions in regard to the power
of congress on the subject of taxa-
tion. and is therefore fraught with
danger to the court, tq each and ewu
cry citizen, and to the republic.
As to that decision these are search-
ing words of Mr. Justice Harlan:
In my Judgment, to say nothing of
the disregard of former adjudications
of this court and of the settled prac-
tice of the government, this decision
may well excite the gravest appre-
hensions. It strikes at the very foun-
The Journal of July 8th contained
the following editorial:
Senator Tallaferro can usually give
a reasonable explanation for nearly
every position he takes in the senate,
and the Journal has always .entertain-
ed a very high regard for the sena-
tor's reasons as well as for himself.
We are curious therefore to learn
what explanation he has for his atti-
ture on the matter of a tariff on pulp
and print paper.
When the amendment to place
news-print paper costing less than
2 1-4 cents per pound on the free list
came up Senator Taliaferro is record-
ed as not voting, while Senator
Fletcher voted for the amendment.
The amendment was defeated.
Senator Aldrich, the senate boss,
planation is satisfactory. It is merely
an assertion that the tariff on print
paper is a tax and that the newspa-
pers are trying to be exempted from
taxes which others are required to
On behalf of every newspaper in
the country we repel the suggest n
and challenge the logic of the asser-
tion itself. No newspaper objects to
paying any proper tax for the support
of the government, but in this case
the government does not get the tax
-it goes to the pockets of the pro-
,tected interests which control the do-
mestic paper supply.
By Senator Taliaferro's own state-
ment it is shown that of the millions
of dollars of paper annually used by
.the American publishers the govern-
ment derives in "taxes" only the pal-
try sum of about $100,000. This, in
itself, ought to be sufficient answer to
the senator's proposition that this tar-
iff is intended as a "tax" on newspa-
pers for the support of the govern-
ment. It is nothing of the kind. It
simply prohibits the importation of
Canadian paper (as the paltry $100,-
000 derived from this source shows)
and leaves the domestic publisher at
the mercy of the paper manufactur-
ers who control the domestic supply.
And those manufacturers in turn pro-
ceed to "tax" the publishers to the
amount of the tariff per ton, and put
the "taxes" in their own pockets.
If Senator Taliaferro wants the
publishers of the United States to
pay taxes for the support of the gen-
eral government by means of a tariff
levied on paper, let him lower that
tariff below the prohibitive point,
make it possible for the domestic pub-
lisher to buy where he can buy the
cheapest and thus secure a revenue
which cannot be secured while the
American publisher is at the mercy
of the domestic manufacturer.

rights and liberties of the humblest
citizen, and the complex and ever-
haunting problems of state and na-
tional Eovereignty, cannot be too jeal-
ously guarded or profoundly honored
to suit me. If we differ upon that
question we differ only as to the nmeth-
od making known our respect for its
power and our concern for its contin-
ued usefulness and honor. As a citi-
zen I bow uncomplainingly to its judg-
ment; as a lawyer, I seek its decis-
ions as the wisest and most profound
expositions of the law to be found
among our own people or elsewhere,
controlling and authoritative, not sim-
ply because the constitution makes
them so, but because of their learn-
ing and research and wealth of rea-
soning; but, sir, as a legislator,
sworn to uphold and maintain the

all its Integrity of purpose, I most re-
spectfully submit that I am not pre-
cluded from carrying to that tribunal
for its reconsideration a question '.pon
which they were all but evenly divid-
ed. Where great and powerful intel-
lects, trained in constitutional law,
each determined to arrive at a sound
and righteous conclusion, differ by a
bare margin of one, and by such dif-
fernece overturn the precedents and
practice of a century, and by such dif-
ferenc. overturn the precedents upon
which we had collected millions from
the American people and fought the
great battles of the Union, who will
tell me that under such circumstances
it is an assault to the dignity of the
court or an undermining of its confi-
dence to ask it again to reconsider
Mr. President, the mere change oft
opinion upon a specific question of
law submitted is a small item to mar
the confidence of the people in that
august body. Our confidence is best
assured and most definitely determin-
ed when it is ascertained that al-
though specific errors may creep in,
errors which, are human, the inherent
bent of its innate strength or virtue,
the compelling power of its intellect-
ual integrity are to correct those er-
rors, so that, in the wide sweep of
the years, its judgments may stand
the test of reason and the strain of
time. Sir, I honor that tribunal by
appealing to its great patience, its
tolerance, its willingness so magnifi-
cently exhibited upon scores of occa-
sions to re-examine its own opinions.

it, with a due regard to the rights of

a paper over in St. Petersburg.
The Pensacola Journal, which has
really built up a phenomenal busi-

deserve their just dues in the way of pensions, as much as any
others who served their state. Captain Wm. Chambers headed
the other company, the first organized by my father, in the same
fight. In his note Gen. Dickison wrote that he had to leave
some of his troops to protect Florida along the St. Johns river,
therefore was short of men for the Gainesville fight. In some
way the ladies had sent a message to Gen. Dickison that the en-
emy had barricaded themselves in the hotel and in all private
residences. In the same way he managed to get all the women
and children out of the danger line--in the churches, if I remem-
ber right He then headed the soldiers, thinking at first it would
be best to march 1i a body. As the Yankees were all inside of
the mmhouses he decided it would be best to plaec men during the
night in situations where they could ensconce themselves as best
they. could behind the beautiful trees of Gainesville. and shoot
at every Yankee showing his head and hands taking aim at his
men from the doors and windows. I remember hearing dignified
Gen. Dickison, Jovial Capt. Chambers and my genial father talk-
ing and laughing like boys about "our men having to make
breastworks of the trees, and there was no need of cavalry tac-
tics in placing men that night to dislodge the enemy from the
buildings." "The cavalry tactics came in all right when the
Yankees were retreating." The Confederates certainly won glo-
ry enough for all concerned. Again, all should be entitled to
their share in the distribution of pensions. Captain Chambers
and charming wife owned a plantation near Reddick, and lived
'there until his death Gen. Dickison and lovely wife owned a
plantation two miles from our home near Sparr. He sold it just
before his death, and it is now known as The Meadows, on the
Seaboard Air ULne railway. When on business to his place he
always visited us. The time before his last visit he requested
me to sing "Dixie." He was astonished at my reply that I
thought the words unworthy the beautiful melody, so never had
learned it. The next and last time he came, not long before his
death. I told him that now I would sing "Dixie," and the words
were as lovely as the melody. I found the new "Dixie" in one
of my magazines. Gen. Dickison listened attentively, applauded
It, and admired "the pretty new words." It is as follows:
I wish I was in the land of childhood,
Rambling there amid the wildwood,
Look away, look away! Look away, Dixie Land.
in Dixie Land, where I was born in,
Early on one frosty morning;
Iook away, look away! Look away, Dixie Land.
Chorus: Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land Ill take my stand,
To live and die in Dixie.
Away, away, away down south in Dixie.
"ris there we passed such merry hours,
Amid the forest leaves and flowers,
Look away, etc.
In May we chose our queen, and crown'd her,
Boys and girls all gathered 'round her,
Look away, etc.
O. gay the times we had together,.
Cared we not the kind of weather,
Look away, etc.
"Twas always gay and pleasant there,
We saw no cloud, we knew no care,
Look away, etc.
So sing we a song that's very
Gay and bright, and blithe and merry.
Look away, etc.
And should you want to drive 'way sorrow
Sing again this song tomorrow.
Look away, etc.
Sing it t, the same tune as dhe ohl "Dixie" words, and no-
tice how much more refined is our Song of the Southland.
In the world through which we're passing.
We may cheer the lonesome pathway
With the gladness of a song.

among those that print the news as

for reiteration that political condi-
tions are such in Florida that fair
and fearless criticism of public men
and events cannot be made without
having the imputation of unright-
eous motives hurled at it by blind par-
tisans. What we have had to say in
regard to Mr. Clark's attitude was
evoked at least on one occasion by
the glaring inconsistency of that gen-
tleman. This is one mission and du-
ty of a public journal. There is no
mortal man who is right all the time,
and there is no way of regulating.

public officials, who are the public

the thought of the people in the pub-

ORLANDO WINS THE FIRST GAME
The first of the series of ball
between Orlando and Ocala,
played at the former city, resulted in
favor of Orlando, the score being 5
to 3. ;

Ocala... ... ...0 0 0 1 0 2 0 0 0-3
Orlando.. .. ..2 0 0 1 0 0 2 0 0-5
Batteries: Ocala, Brown and Wal-
ler; Orlando, Windham and McCor-
mick. Umpire: Rev. Fred Barry.
Ocala's six errors during the game
were costly, but the feature of the af-
ternoon was a home-run hit by Sec-
and Base Donaldson of Ocala.
The Ocala team must have played
a splendid game to have held the Or-
lando boys down so well, as it is con-
ceded that Orlando now has 'the
strongest team in the state.
THE OCALA BOYS AT ORLANDO
That must have been a most excit-
ing game of ball at Orlando Tuesday
afternoon, when the Ocala team scor-
ed a victory over the Orlando players
in the tenth inning. It is a victory
worth recording, for the Orlando ag-
gregation has the reputation of being
the "crack" team of the state, while
the Ocala team makes no pretentions
except as being average amateurs,
and the nine is made up almost exclu-
sively of home boys.
The score Tuesday stood as fol-

There is no other section of the
United States where the winter visit-
or, being a person of restricted
means, can depend upon earning
enough by the labor of his hands to
pay the expenses of his winter so-
journ as in Florida. A little foresight-
ed arrangement will enable a family
coming to this state for the winter
to rent a small farm near Tampa or
some other shipping point. Arriving
early, they tan produce enough gar-
den stuff to pay all their expenses
and more. Adding a poultry branch.
they can make money enough to pay
for their return trip-if they are fool-

A SUGGESTION FROM MR. GAITS-
McIntosh, Fla., July 27, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
I know you desire the upbuilding of
Ocala and Marion county, but you la-
ment and moan because you are an
inland town, and at the mercy of the
railroads. I may be mistaken, but I
think Ocala has it in her power to be
independent of, and make her own
terms with, the railroads. You have
the roadbed of a one-time railroad
from Ocala to Silver Springs. Sup-
pose Ocala buys this old roadbed, get
a fifty-horse power gasolene engine
and some freight cars, and Ocala will
own a right of way to the ocean, and
if the railroads won't make rates to
suit, let your goods come by water to
Silver Springs and then use your own
road to town. I think it would be a
good investment for Ocala. I mean
let the city own and control this high-
way, charge enough for maintenance,
and have a sinking fund for new
equipment. This may not seem feas-
ible, but I believe if you will get "Gas
Power" for August, published in St.
Joseph, Michigan, and let it tell you
what is being done with gasolene en-
gines, both as tractors and on rails,
you will see the possibilities of Ocala
as an inland city, entirely independ-
ent, so far as freights are concerned,
of the railroads. There is a gasolene
locomotive at Griffin, Ga., hauling
sand for the Griffin Press Brick Com-
pany, and I believe one could be used
to give Ocala a very low freight rate
on the bulk of her purchases. If not,
why not? Respectfully,
S. H. GAITSKILL.

the nature of the case no criterion
of standard for "greatness" can be
prescribed. While eminently prop-

who have distinguished themselves

Therefore, in a comparatively new

for their transportation, it woulo
seem obvious that that person if "a

a wild. uninhabited and inaccessible
region. Jt renders northern markets
available to owners of thousands of
acres of land hitherto" regarded as
worthless; it has created enormous
values where none existed before, and
has led to a marvelous influx of per-
manent housekeepers and transient
winter residents and the upbuilding
of prosperous settlements and bust-
ling towns in sections where a soli-
tude prevailed and where for centu-
ries the Seminole and the alligator
had undisputed sway and held civili-

Hitherto, for four months of the
year, practically two-thirds of the
country's population have shivered
with cold throughout inhospitable
northern latitudes, finding relief
therefrom only by fleeing to southern
Europe or to the Pacific coast. Now
'hey are seeking Florida resorts in-

made accessible an American Riviera,
infinitpiy larger than that which
skirts the Mediterranean. and one
which has been made even more se-
ductive and delightful as a winter re-
sort for our people. To accommo
date this large transient element, ad-
equate provision had to be made, and
at heavy cost, and to that end alone,
not less than $12.000,000 have been
expended on hotels, casinos, golf

But the most audacious project of
Mr. Flagler approaches the road's fi-
nal stage of completion. Within an-
other twelve months he will have
completed and in operation an exten-
sion of his East Coast system, a
standardized railroad, built out from
the main land for 130 miles, through
the waters of the Atlantic ocean to
Key West, by means of a series of
massive pier-and-arch viaducts, con-
structed of reinforced concrete, ris-
ing thirty feet above mean water lev-
el. The road will link together the
keys or islands, some thirty in num-
ber, by means of this series of colos-
sal viaducts, some of which are three
to four miles in length, and all of
them over water varying from three
to thirty feet in depth, thereby mak-
ing Key West the commercial outpost
of the country, commanding the en-
trance to the Gulf of Mexico, bringing
Cuba within ninety miles of the great
railway system of the continent, and,
in effect, projecting our entire rail-
way system hundreds of miles nearer
to the Panama canal than any rafl-
way now existing. The advantages
which this marvelous ocean highway
is destined to afford our commerce
with Cuba and the West Indies, as
well as with Central and South Amer-
ica, and (on the completion of 'he
Panama canal) with that of the coun-
tries of the Orient.. are incalculable
In time of war, its strategical impor-
tance as an army and navy base, and
its value as a base of supplies, it
would be hard to exaggerate.
In no other country would such a
project ever be thought of except as
a national undertaking. Nowhere
does history show a parallel to it as
an Individual enterprise. Only a
country's strongest, most resolute
men are ever identified with great
and difficult physical undertakings of
this character. Unless a public ben-
efactor like this is for inscrutable
reasons to be excluded from consid-
eration as unworthy of recognition
for this honor, I submit that it is just
that "Henry M. Flagler's name should
be accorded its rightful place in the

"The bill was prepared by those ex-
perts, who know more than any other
men that I know of about thescus-
toms law and the administration of
the customs law and all the practical
and legal questions involved. I
should perhaps exclude the senator
from Maryland from that description;
but with the exception of the senator
from Maryland, they had a better
knowledge and more knowledge and
more accurate knowledge of the sub-
ject than any men that I know of.
This bill was prepared by those men.
It was submitted, after it was prepar-
ed, to the other gentlemen I have al-
luded to, including the president of
the United States.
"My reasons and the reasons of the
committee for taking these precau-
tions were that we were not all law-
yers; and we were extremely anxious
to have the provisions of the bill test-
ed by the men who had the most
knowledge upon the subject. I want-
ed their views because I am not a
lawyer-although, as I have said, I
have been studying this question,
from a practical standpoint, for thir-
ty years, and I do know something
about what the practice has been in

Notwithstanding all of which, vhen
Senator Raynor finished his profound
and luminous argument, in which he
cited the language of the supreme
court in support of every point of his
contention, the senate was convinced
itb he was correct, that it would' not
pass the statute as it wab word-
d Senator Aldrich arose in his
#lake and said that every amendment
the senator from Maryland suggest-
ed would be taken under serious con-
sideration, and would be submitted to

Senator Raynor won a decided and
magnificent victory in the face of the
fact that the practice of the govern-
ment had been going along uninter-
ruptelpvr a period of thirty years

OVER THIRTY-FIVE YEARS
In 1872 there was a great deal of
diarrhoea, dysentery and cholera In-
fantum. It was at this time that
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di-
arrhoea Remedy was first brought into
use. It proved more successful than
any other remedy or treatment, and
has for thirty-five years maintained
that record. From a small beginning
its sale and use has extended to every
part of the United States and to many
foreign countries. Nine druggists out
of ten will recommend it when their
opinion is asked, although they have
other medicines that pay them a
greater profit. It can always be de-
pended upon. even in the most se-
vere and dangerous cases. For sale

That there has been an enormous

"KNOWLEDGE 18 POWER"
Of our earlier statesmen none occu-
py a higher niche in the affections of
the people than DeWitt Clinton. He
was mayor of New York, governor of
York, a United States
New York, and it was
through his instrumentalities that
the Erie canal was constructed. As it
ante-dated steam its completion was
justly regarded as one of the greatest
projects of the times. After its com-
pletion and upon its formal opening
Governor Clinton was conveyed in a
barge along the entire length amid
the rejoicing of the people living
along its banks. Governor Clinton
was a candidate for the presidency in
1812, but as he was opposed to our
second war with Great Britain it
cast a temporary shadow over his
popularity, and he was defeated. In
1823 he delivered an address at
Schenectady, N. Y., before the Phi
Beta Kappa society, and in closing
paid the following eloquent tribute to
"Finally, whatever may be our
thoughts, our words, our writings, or
our actions, let them be subservient
to the prom'btion of science and the
prosperity of our country. Pleasure
is a shadow, wealth is vanity, and
power a pageant; but knowledge is
ecstatic enjoyment, perennial in
fame, unlimited in space, and infinite
in duration. In the performance of
its sacred offices it fears no danger,
spares no expense, omits no exertion.
It scales the mountains, looks into
the volcano, dives into the ocean,
perforates the earth, wings its flight
into the skies, encircles the globe, ex-
plores sea and land, contemplates the
distant, examines the minute, com-
prehends the great and ascends to
the sublime. No place is too remote
for its grasp; no heavens too exalted
for its reach."
He then ended his peroration with
a quotation, from Hooker, a celebrated
clergyman of England:
"Its seat is the bosom of God;. its
voice is the harmony of the world.
All things in heaven and earth do it
homage, the very least 4W.eellng'its
care, and the greatest t execnpt
from its power. Both angels and men
and creatures, of what condition so-
ever, though 'each in different sort
and manner, yet all, with uniform
consent, admiring it as the parent of
peace and happiness."
