THE MEANING OF A BILLION CAN-
It is said that the amount of ele--
tric light turned on the Hudson river
from all sources last Saturday night
was 1,000,000,000 candle power.
W. J. Lampton, in the New Yoi k
World, reduces this enormous illumi-
nation to actual candles, with the fol-
lowing interesting results:
One billion candles to light up thel
Hudson river for one evening! The
ordinary tallow candle of the olden
times weighed about two ounces. That
means 2,000,000,000 ounces of tallow,
or 125,000,000 pounds, 62,500 tons, or
3125 carloads; and allowing 80 pounds
of tallow to each thousand-pound ani-
mal, 150,000 head of cattle would be
required for the product. A tallow
candle was about eight inches long
and the wick in it was always do i-
bled, which would give sixteen 0il-
lion inches of wick for a billion can-
dles. This would more than reach
around the world, as the figures re-
duced to miles will show. As for the
candles themselves, they would reach
half way around and lap over if laid
end to end. Tallow candles ought to
be worth about two cents each---that
is to say, a billion candles would oc
worth two billion cents, and as a hun-
dred cents go to the dollar, this woui i
give the cost of the candles at $20,-
000,000, an item of expense whica
would have staggered even a Nc-v
York show committee's liberality. And.
as for lighting, that many candles,
think of the labor item, please. Say
one man could light 500 an hour aloug
a line, bunched, it would require 2,

get them lighted by 7. At as low a

A SINGULAR OCCURRENCE
Those sitting in front of the fire sta-
tion last night witnessed a very pe-
culiar occurrence. Every little while
there would be a shower of small shot.
Where they came from was a mys-
teiy. The strange part of it was the'
shot seemed to descend directly from
the heavens. It may have been fro:i
a passing balloon, or the recent earth-
quake may. have upset things. The
showers continued at intervals for an
hour, but where they came from was
a riddle that could not be unraveled.
The editor of this paper took an au
tomobile ride Thursday as far down
the Stokes' Ferry road as Mr. Parker
and his gang of men are at work, cut-
ting the right of way and removing
the trees and stumps from the same.
This road is run as straight as the
crow flies, and when hardened will be
one of the best automobile driveways
in the county. It will connect wita
other roads in other counties and will
be the shortest route to the city of
Tampa. The automobile has come to
stay and it is promoting the building
of good roads in all sections of the
country, and Florida ought to lead all
other states, as roads here can be
built so much more cheaply. Men all
along the road are getting out cross-
ties for Mr. Ray's new road and the
road itself is shortening the distance
of the grade from Ocala. The hands
are now grading in this direction, and
will be on this side of the Chambliss
fields before the end of the week.

fines and sentences, he refrained
from shooting, although the tempta-

DEATH OP MR. CHA&. OMALLEY
COMPLIMENT TO AN OCALA
BRIDE-ELECT AND HER
It is with a gefn sense of sorro'
that this paper announces the death
of Mr. Cha. O'Malley Fay. The dis-
tressing event occurred Tuesday
night at the Marion county hospital.
The deceased belonged to a proa:-
mlent South Carolina family, and,
moving to Florida, first settled at
IAesburg. He came from Leesburg
to Ocals. He then resided for a shot
while at Port Inglis, and afterwards
purchased a farm near Belleview anl
a home in the little town. He will be
greatly missed at all these places, for
he was well known in all of them,
and was greatly beloved by those who
knew him, for he was a genial and a
most lovable man.
Mr. Foy was a great friend to the
newspapers and had a natural foul-
ness for literature. His pen was pro-
lific, and he was the author of many
fugitive poems that, because of their
intrinsic merit, found their way int3
the columns of many of the newspa-
pers of the country. He was a rega-
lar contributor for the Leesburg Com-
mercial, the Tampa Times and both
the Ocala papers. He possessed true
poetic genius and he was most versa-
tile, some of his poems dealing in wit,
numor, satire and pathos, and "J.-
serve a place in our historical society.
When the Confederate monument
was unveiled in Ocala, at the request
of the ladies who had the same in
charge. Mr Foy contributed a beauti-
ful poem for the occasion, which was
read with fine effect, and received the
most favorable criticism; and, again,
when the patriotic citizens of Belle--
view had a Fourth of July celebration,
participated in mostly by the large
number of northern settlers there.
Mr. Foy was called on by a delega-
tion for a poem and it fitted the occi-
sion so well that it formed a chief
place on the program, and it received
very high commendations.
Mr. Foy was an affable, urbane, ami-
able gentleman, and won his way into
the affections of those he mingled
with, and they were pleased to Ib'
counted as his friends.
The last time the writer saw h'ni
he talked very courageously bf death
and looked upon it as one who lays
down to pleasant dreams. To him it
had no terrors.

Mr. Haley's fiance, Miss Anne Mixon-

Springs run to gulf of Mexico, 18
miles, average elevation above sea
level, 20 feet, would require the re-
moval of 42,225,192 cubic yards; mak-
ing a total of 260,375,764 cubic yards.
Estimating this at a cost of 33 1-3-.
per cubic yard, we have $86,791,921 as
total cost of excavating the canal.
It is possible if this canal should
be dug along this route that a suffi-
cient supply of ground water would
be found between Silver Springs anI
I Blue Springs, of a higher source
(from 5 to 10 feet) than the heads of
these springs. If so, this would re-
duce the excavation and cost mate-

A BOUQUET FOR EDITOR ZIM
Lewis W. Zim. state senator from
St. Johns county, being the thirty-
first district, has announced his can-
didacy for congress. He enters tho
list against Congressman Frank Clark
in the second congressional district,
and thus disappoints the hopes of
those who have claimed that no one
would opose the latter. Mr. Zim has
won for himself a high reputation on
the east coast, in fact. throughout the
entire state, by his probity of charac-
ter. his bright mentality and an exhi-
bition of real statesmanship while in
office. He has an unusual number of
warm personal friends who will cer-
tainly work hard for his success and
he will lead Clark a lively race wit i
an excellent chance to beat his rival
to the goal.-Pensacola Journal.

quite a number of their evangelists

Now, what about them? Well, they
are peculiar in other ways than in
speaking in tongues.
1. They are a marvelously happy,
sweet-spirited people. They almost
never speak of the faults of others.
If one curses them they go away and
pray for him. If smitten in the face
they turn the other cheek.
2. When in temporal want they
tell the Lord about it. but never make
needs known to others.
They never go to law with any
not even to recover a debt. To
use their expression, they tell the
Lord about it.
4. They belong to no secret socie-

5. They never run for a political
office, though some of them vote.

PELLAGRA IN NORTH CAROLINA

comes from North Carolina, where it
is said that there are one thousand
cases, only one county out of ninety-
eight being entirely exempt.
This is an astonishing record, and
it is hoped that there may be so;',e
mistake in the diagnosis. The fatal-
ity which so frequently-almost in-
variably-attends an attack by this
disease, of which we have heard tor
the first time but a few months aga,
makes it a matter of grave apprehen-

a thousand cases have developed in a
The authorities in North Carolinai
fully realize the desperate situation,
and they are making arrangements to
establish a charity hospital in Char-
lotte, and at the same time do every-
thing in their power to find a cure.
The situation indeed calls for the
most earnest investigation on the
part of the medical authorities, both
state and national, and it is hoped
that within a short time a clearer un-
derstanding may be reached in rega-d
to the nature and the proper treat-
ment of it.

casions. and headed by the Ocala M 'i-
ropolitan Band, the line of march w .s
tak :i upl. The procession went fro ,i
the place ot formation on the w,-ist
side of the public square to the c';r-
ner of the Marion Hardware Co-n-i
pany's store, thence to Main street
and Fort King avenue to the place o1
entrance of the new Masonic temple.
There the column halted and opened
order and faced inward, and the grand
officers, who were in the rear of the
marching column marched through,
the open ranks of the column up to
the stand where the corner stone was
to be laid.
Everything was in readiness an.i
the ceremonies were opened by pray-
er by the grand chaplain. Rev. Dodge,
after which. the grand master pro-
ceeded, with the assistance of the
grand officers, to lay the corner stone
in accordance with the formula laid
down by the order of Free Masonry.
The ceremonies were beautiful and,
impressive, and carried out without
the slightest hitch or halt.
The grand master's work was splen-
didly done, and a number of Masons
and others remarked that they ha.!
seen a good many corner stones laid.
but had never seen one where the
work was done where each one had
so smoothly and impressively per-
formed his part.
After the work of laying the stone
was completed, Major Izlar, in the ab-
sence of the grand lodge orator, de-
liveied a Masonic address. Major Iz-
lar is a past grand master of the
grand lodge of Masons of South Caro-
lina, and how he performed his part
will be better learned from his ad-
dress, which we will publish in full to-
morrow morning, as quite a numb r
of the brethren have requested that
it be published in full so that they
may get copies. For that reason we
make no comment on it now.
There were estimated to be one
hundred Masons in line, and the num-
ber of people assembled to see and
hear the beautiful and impressive cer-
emonies was estimated at five hun-
dred. Altogether the day was one
long to be remembered, both on a.-
count of the ceremonies witnessed, a3
well as from the fact that it was the
laying of the corner stone of a build-
ing which is to fill a long felt need i-i
Ocala, both as a suitable temple for
the Masons, and a theater or opera
house for our amusement and art-lov-
The citizens should honor and
thank the Masons for this splendid

Miss Myrtle Whitfield, the winner
of the prize in the Ocala district, is a
very attractive and popular young la-
dy, and from the outset it was mani-
fest that she had loyal and steadfast
friends who were going to use every
legitimate means for her success.

she is commonly known among her
friends, winner in the northern dis-
trict, is the daughter of Mr. J. C. Ho:w-

Miss Tucker Wins the Watch
The handsome gold watch offered
by the Ocala Banner for the largest
list of new subscribers sent in during
the last few weeks of our diamond
contest was won by Miss Winnifred
Tucker of this city.
It is a beauty, and we congratulate
Miss Tucker on her success. We also
take this opportunity to thank her
and others for their untiring work in
We feel that our paper made many
new friends during our little cam-

L George Fred Williams, with Gov-
ernor Douglas, the leaven of democ-
racy that is left in the once good o!'l
state of Massachusetts, says that for
years the democratic party has been
howling for tariff reform, but when
at last it was given a chance for re-
form, the members, whether from the
north or the south, wanted to reform
everybody but themselves. When thoe
states of the respective representa-
tives were reached the democratic
members from the same cried out
aloud for a part of the "loot." George
Fred Williams states the case correct-
ly so far as Florida is concerned. Pro-
tect Florida's industries, said one of
the members, and write whatever el.sa
you awnt in the bill. He said that he-
wanted for Florida a part of h1C
"swag." That was a strong, if it was
a candid statement.
The Baltimore Manufacturer's Rec-
ord says that no portion of the coun-
try is more in need of good roads
than the south.. Nature has not giv-
en the southern states natural road-
ways such as are to be found in some
colder climates and in the rocky re-
gions where agriculture is painful and
scantily productive. In the warm
sections o; the United States the
hand of Providence has made all
ready for cultivation of the soil at
ibte least possible preliminary ex-
pense. Fertile acres that need very
little or no preparation for producing
profits to the owner is stretched over
miles and miles of territory. Ha'-ing
provided the land for producing crops,
nature could hardly be expected to
produce the roads for hauling them.
It is up to the man with the cotton
field or the cane field to make his ways
for travel, and the task, owing to the
greatness of the distances to be cov-
ered, is an enormous one. It is only
within a few years that the people of
the south have really taken hold of
the great problem of roads. In a
short time and under many difficul-
ties something has been accomplish-
ed which can be called a start in the

The universal esteem in which
Johnson was held may be judged froni
the expressions of President Taft:
"He was a wonderful man. He add-
ed to a charming personality a frank-
ness and common sense that won over
his natural political opponents and
he made an able, efficient and most
courageous public official. That a
man of his parts and of his capacity .
for great public usefulness should b-
taken now at the age of forty-eigait
should be, and is, a source of national
regret, for had Governor Johnson liv-
,d his position in the state and cotn-
try was such that he certainly wouitl
have been called upon to fill an in:-
portant place and to assist in the pro-
gressive movements of which, he was
a constant advocate."

good roads movement has taken a
strong hold on the people. We have

was stated that in Sumt-.r
county two mules recently hauled in-
to Americus at a single load ten ba,,rc
of cotton over a road on which before
being improved, two bales were a
load for them. That article has been
reproduced in a number of weekly
papers, and we have no doubt has had
the effect of strengthening the senii-
ment for good roads. If a team (of
mules can do five times the work on
good roads and do it with greater
ease and less strain on the wagon, it
stands to reason that farmers could
invest money in no way to better ad-
vantage than in good roads."

HERE IT IS AGAIN
The Ocala Banner is the only papa r
in Florida that stands flat-footed for
free trade. It is opposed to protec-.
tion in all its forms, and has never fa-
vored a compromise on any proposi-
tion with those who have been t!n-
kering with the tariff. It has held that
the principle of protection was selfish
and sectional to the core. When ota-
ers favored a protection of a dollar
a box on Florida oranges, although at
that time the owner of two groves, it
stoutly resisted the proposition.
Yet in spite of its pronounced and
uncompromising attitude, here com-es

the Springs can be plainly seen at a
depth of 50 feet. Fish on the bottom
are as plain as if they were in a tin
pall. A penny thrown into the
Springs can be seen as readily as if
held in your hand. There is some-
thing about the chemical composition
of tWe water that serves to give it a
magnifying power. It is nine miles
to the Oklawaha river, and the water
is as clear as crystal the entire dis-
tanc-. A student of nature can secure
food for rumination on this trip that
will last for a long time.
Blue Springs is another resort, of a
similar nature, twenty miles south of
Ocala, and Is reached by rail or car-
riage. Many pleasure parties find
their way to these Springs at all sea-
sons of the year.
Homosassa-on-the-Gulf is another of
the popular resorts reached from
Ocala, being two hours distant by
train, ana located on the Gulf of
Mexico, furnishing the best fishing
and hunting to be found'in this sec-
tion of the state.
Lake Weir is fast becoming a popu-
lar resort, being eighteen miles south
of Ocala on the line of the A C. L.
There is fine bathing and sailing here.

WANTS HARE FOR COMMISSION-
In spite of the insistence of several
of the leading papers of the state, si-
itor W. B. Hare of the Arcadia News
declares he will not be a candidate
for railroad commissioner. Men of
his character and ability are worth
while coaxing on a point of this kiud.

istry business transacted at general
delivery window from 6 p. m., until

Paved Streets-There are over six
miles of paved streets which cost the
city $7,500. The main square or pla-
za is paved with vitrified brick. Good
roads lead out from the city in every
direction, affording many pleasing
Cement Walks-During the past
year several miles of cement walks
have been laid on the main business
and residence streets, and the good
work still continues; and it will not
be long before this class of walks
will supersede all others.
Public Lbrary-Of the few cities
within the state that maintain public
libraries this city is one. It was start-
ed eighteen years ago, and has been
in constant operation since. The new
location is on N. Main street, on the
second floor of the Clyatt building,
and is open during the afternoon from
4 to 6. The librarian is Miss Louise
B. Gamsby. Membership is $2.50 per
year, which fee permits the patrons
to borrow the current magazines with
each book taken out. Non-members
are required to pay 2 cents per day
for the privilege at drawing books.
Water Works-The Ocala Water
Company was organized in 1888 with
a capital stock of $100,000, owned
principally by eastern capitalists. The
water is obtained from an artesian
well bored to a depth of 1220 feet,
rendering the source of contamination
absolutely free frme surface Impuri-
ties. The capacity is 500.000 gallons
per day. The water is hard, but heal-
thy and palatable, the sulphur being
removed before being turned into the
mains. There are nine miles of
mains and ninety-five fire hydrants.
Transpowtiontl-Marion county and
Ocala have two systems of railroads,
the Atlantic Coast Line and the Sea-
board Air Line. Both roads traverse
the county north and south, and the
4. C. L. runs alsm east and west.
In addition to these rail facilities,
boat lines operate from the Oklawa-
ha river, which runs north and south
through the bounty, connecting at
Palatka for Jackoneville and ocean
points, and also tnes operating in the
Withlacoochee river, which skirts the
wouthwesterm edge at the county.
Points of Interet-Silver Springs,
a resort five miles north of the city
on the line of the Seaboard Air Line,
is one of the most famous and popu-
lar resorts in the state. The Springs
may be reached by driving out, as the
roads to it are fine. At the Springs
is the terminus of the Howard and
Hart lines of steamers which run to
Paatka. This is considered one of
the most beautiful trips on the con-
tinent. The Oklawaha river, into
which the Springs empty, has an indi-
viduality all its own. Its banks are
strewn with a constantly changing
panorama of scenery entirely differ-
ent from anything else in this coun-
try. At the Springs a sight awaits
the visitor that it is seldom one's
privilege to behold. The tiny boat
that takes you out on the Springs has
a glass bottom, through the bottom of
(The following extract is from Miss
Sarah L. Jones' "Life in the South
From the Commencement of the
War," which was published in Lo',-
don in 1863. The author was an Eln-
glish school teacher, who came to the
iUnited States in 1859, and found her-
self professionally engaged in the
southern states at the outbreak of
hostilities. In 1861 she was engaged
by Governor John Milton of Florida
as tutor to his children, and the fo,-
lowing extract relates some of her
observations and impressions sin his
family. It will be noted that some of
her criticisms are caustic and portray
rather too graphically perhaps the
rude conditions then existing, but as
a picture of. life in a prominent Flor-
ida family these pages are not with-
out certain historic value. The au-
thor expresses plainly her sympathy
with the southern cause, and on going,
north in 1862, was openly consider .

steps and a portico, was just opposi.e.

say that the governor would 'be over
in a few minutes,' which were passed
in as great a flurry of wonderment as
when I had watched over the side of

"A very carefully dressed gentle-
man was not long in making his ap-

ticularly cordial, and my courage van-
rf om his own sense o y,
ished like a spark. His words w,'-e
few; he had 'a great press of busi-
ness on hand.' He did not make any
inquiries about my journey, excepting
to say that he had received my letter
from Charleston, and thought, per.-
haps, that being there, I might have
been tempted to run the blockade and
leave the country. I heartily wished
I had done so; but replied that sucn a
step had not entered my mind, as I
had promised to keep my engagement
with him. How little the people seem-

at an odd sort of chattel in the room,
as if expecting me to perform on it
before even my gloves were off. I
had heard that his family was very
musical. Soon he arose to depart,
without mentioning his wife and
daughters, until leaving the room,
when he said, 'Would I prefer to con-
tinue the journey immediately, wait
till after dinner, or rest, and proceed
the next day?'
"Continue the journey-what could
he mean? I looked the question,
when he replied:
"'My family is at my place in Jack-
son county; I have not brought them
here, because the city is not so agree-
able as the country, where they have
everything they require. In case of
an expected attack at St. Mark's they
are safer there. My wife.and daugh-
ters are accustomed to be where they
have plenty to eat and drink from our
own plantation; and as it is now very
difficult to obtain provisions here, I
think you will all enjoy yourselves
better in the country.'
"With such tedious journeys of late,
the night-traveling, and excitement, I
felt so much worn out, that I propos-
ed to proceed the next morning, and
rest at Tallahassee until then. It was
now about noon; the governor said
he would come again before dinner to
conduct me to the dining room, ani
would desire his servant to 'look "n
occasionally,' and bring the carriage
to drive me over the town.
"Tallahassee is built on rather high
ground, and hilly. There is not the
slightest appearance of 'city,' scarcely
even village, for the roads are very
wide, bordered with trees, and with
trees also along the center, in some
parts. A few adjoining stores are on
one street, with another or two scat-
tered here and there. There are two
or three churches surrounded with
trees, and some very pretty residenc-
es in gardens of trees. Groves of
trees, thickly planted, are every-
where. Many evergreen oaks, ceda-s,
pines and holly, and the warm weath-
er and open windows, again make
you forget it was January. It Is a
pretty place, though not a 'city,' ac-

that case. He was accustomed to be
trusted and consulted, and I learned
that he had traveled a good deal with
his master, and had formerly belong-
ed to a gentleman in New Orleans;
and he had not seen so much variety
without improving his intelligence
and observation. He knew the names
of most of the trees and plants that
we met with, was always obliging in
stopping to gather specimens for me,
and gave me, on the whole, quite "i
stock of useful information concern-
ing the country we passed.

did not change their pace nor cease
to step together for hours at a time.
Thus, William, sitting on the front
seat, could reply to my inquiries and
attend to his beautiful grays at the
same time. The governor had not
found time even to tell me the num-
ber and age of his children, therefore,
judge my surprise, on asking William,
to hear: 'Ten, all at home.' Ten chil-

several who had died. Six were to

For slowly but surely the race is
disappearing from the continent.
While Judge Dickson is something
of a romancer, the Atlanta Georgian
says that he is also a student of
economic and social conditions, anJ
his duties upon the bench have given
him excellent opportunities for In-
sight and observation. The article is
well worth perusal.
Says the Mississippi jurist:
"Forty years ago the negro was the
healthiest man in America. Today
he is the weakest, most predisposed
to disease, the man with the least re-
sistive power. Heredity and the
white man's regulations made him
what he was in 1865; heredity and the
negro mode of life make him what ne
"Before the war the great mass of
negroes-as they are today-were ag-
ricultural laborers. Their masters
prescribed hours of toil and rest, pro-
vided homes and overlooked their
amusements. Irrespective of any hu-
man motive, the master's selfish in-
terest demanded the best possible
care of his property.

The merchants of Citronelle are
selling an average of $2200 worth of
feed every month. That means that
each year $26,400 goes out of Citron-
elle to Iowa and Illinois. It means
that in the last ten years we haire
sent out of our town $264,000. Every
cent of the money might have been
kept at home. What would it mean?
Now, look here. About one hundr-ed
people get their mail on the rural de-
liveries from Citronelle. Suppose
they had produced this amount of
feed. It would have built each family
a comfortable house, a good barn and
over a thousand dollars left for im-

one thousand dollars a mile for co.-

RATTLESNAKE TREES A BOY
Matanss Lad Stops on Monster and
Eacape by Climbing Post
Stepping upon a six-foot diamond-
back rattlesnake and getting out of
the way of the reptile by leaping upon
the top of a cypress fence post, was
the thrilling and unpleasant exberi-
ence of Marion Joseph, a thirteen-
year-old boy at Matansas a couple of
days ago, according to news receive d
in the city today.
The lad was going through a dense
hammock Just at dusk when he stee-
ped ove: some brush and directly up-
on a rattler. He saw the big reptile
immediately, and, screaming for help,
leaped for the cypress post in a barb-
ed wire fence back of him. He made
the top of the post all right and eas-
ily stood upon it, as it was broad.
The snake coiled and the lad claims
that it struck at him as he leaped, but
that the fangs only touched his trous-
The boy's cries for help were heard
by Mr. C. J. Dupont and some other
neighbors and they immediately went
to his assistance. The snake was la-
ter killed and was found to measure
over six feet in length, although
there were but two rattles and a but-
ton on its tail.
The lad was still on top of the post
when help arrived and was badly
frightened as a result of his narrow
escape.-St. Augustine Record.

GEORGIA'S COTTON CROP WORTH
While in Atlanta the other day,
Harvie Jordan, president of the South-
ern Cotton Growers' Assoelation, said
that $1,000,000 will be distributed
among the cotton growers of Georgia
in the next six months through the
marketing of the cotton crop.
Jordan is very optimistic and says
the south is being lifted by a flood
tide of prosperity, adding:
"Contrary to past history, the fall
movement of the new crop has shown
no depression in prices, but on the
contrary the market appears to be
"This is due in part to the demand
of the mills, whose stocks were large-
ly exhausted at the opening of the
new season, and to the deterioration
of the cotton crop in the southwestern
states since June 1.
"The crop will be shorter in Texas,
Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and
Mississippi than elsewhere, while th
production in all of the eastern states
will be under that of last year.
"Reports indicate that a considema-
ble portion of this crop was sold d'-:-
mg the summer by growers and sup-
ply merchants for delivery in October
and November, and when these de'lv-
eries are made the original hedges
sold against them will have to oe
bought in, and this alone will tend to
strengthen the market."
All women are more or less vain--
likewise all men.

GRACE A. TOWNSEND.
Mr. Meyer A. Novick of Brooklyn,
in the columns of the New York
World, draws the following inspiring
lesson from the life of Minnesota's
Mr. Novick says:
"The life of the late Gov. John A.
Johnson, which was cut off in the
blossom of its youth, will appeal to
every aspiring American youth. It is
an object lesson of monumental sig-
nificance to those who, born in hum-
ble circumstances, cherish the sub-
lime hope and ambition of rising in
the world, the innate hope of every
true American child.
"There is only one class of people
whose lives can rightfully be callel
a success, and that is the class whose
usefulness to mankind commands uni-
versal respect, and which upon tLe
termination of its temporal lease of
life is mourned with personal bereave-
ment by all people. In that class Gov.
Johnson was a conspicuous member.
"In his pronunciamento of demo-
cratic principles which appeared in
the World of Jan. 3, 1908, Gov. John-
son said: 'Personally I would rather.
be able to write a book that wou'd
live one hundred years than to oe
able to amass wealth that would ena-
ble those to inherit it to live for gen-
erations in luxury. Yet the amassing
of wealth may be of vast industrial
service to the country and to thote
who seek honest work and wage.
But wealth-getting becomes a crime
when the man obtains it by the sale
of all his finer instincts, by the sacri-
fice of his character, by the violation
of the nation's laws and by the tres-
pass on the rights of others.' Let the
malefactors of great wealth appropri-
ate this wholesome declaration ani'
bequeath it to their posterity as a
"What better example of modem
true democracy, true Americanism,
can we find than that portrayed by
the noble life, lofty convictions and
transcendent principles of the late
governor of Minnesota? Alas! were
it not for his untimely death he might 1
have been president of the United t
States in 1913. His loss is an irrepar-
able one to the democratic party. As
for the country it has lost a man who
indeed stood for principles of sound,
progressive government and not for
individual fads. who placed the wal- f
fare of the nation above inordinate t
selfish ambition." t

THE LESSON TO BE DRAWN
FROM JOHN A. JOHNSON'S LIFE
Summed up, the California lemon
growers are frightened at the pros-
pects of the profits which they had
Figured would be theirs from the nev
ariff schedule going into the hands of
he railroads; Florida citrus intere3:s
ind lemon importers are elated and
we might say gratified; and lastly the
consumer stands a show of paying tihe
right. It is complicated. California

MONUMENT TO MARK GRAVES
A Washington special says that to
The news which appeared in th
Packer last week regarding the pr,
posal of the transcontinental railroad
to advance rates on oranges and len
ons from California to the east i
causing much agitation in Californi
citrus fruit cricles and will likely
prove the basis of a prolonged flgb
between the fruit interests and th
railroads. In one particular the situ.
tion is somewhat humorous, from th
fact that the railroads appear to b
getting ready to secure the lion'
share of the increased revenue accrt
ing to the California growers becau.;
of the recent favorable tariff legisii
tion by congress affecting lemons. I
will be remembered that at the las
session of congress the Californi
fruit interests exerted every effort t
force congress to raise the impor
duty on foreign lemons for the pus
pose of boosting the California indur
try. How well this effort was apple
is shown in the successful outcome o
the contest, the tariff being raised t,
meet the satisfaction of the grower-
For a time it appeared that a boo:)
was in store for the California lemo,
industry, to some extent at the ex
pense of the foreign industry. Now
however it appears that ihe railroad!
saw an opportunity in this increase
revenue for the lemon growers to in
crease their own revenues, and the'
apparently are not slow to take ad
vantage of the opportunity. It is esti
mated that the advance proposed b)
the railroads would mean a loss ou
nearly $10,000,000 annually to th<
California citrus fruit growers, and, ol
course, such an item as this is worth
fighting for and the growers and oth.
ers interested with them are prepared
to make a strenuous effort to prevent
any advance in the rates.
Indirectly, this coming contest over
rates may develop into a contest
which will concern others than tho;e
directly interested in the California
industry. For a long time there has
been a good deal said at intervals re-
garding the apparent advantages Cal-
ifornia possesses in the matter of
fruit rates, which are in some instanc-
es, directly detrimental to the inter-
ests of other sections It will be re-
called that at the time the Florida
fruit growers were contending for an
adjustment of rates that they could
compete with the California growers
in the big markets of the country the
interstate commerce commission in
its decision stated that the rates en-
joyed by California were plainly a dis-
crimination against other sections
and intimated that should the matter
be brought directly to its attention
for consideration a general shake-up
in the present basis of citrus fruit
rates all over the country might re-
sult. It is along this line that there
es opportunity for important develop-
ments should the California people
carry their case before the interstate
Florida has contended for many
years that California was being de-
cidedly favored by the railroads on
citrus fruit rates, much to the detri-
ment of the Florida industry.
The lemon importers are also much
interested in the proposed advance in
California lemon rates, for should i:
go into effect it would help mate-
rlally to place the foreign grown fr iit
on a competing basis with the Cali-
ornia lemon, notwithstanding the
new tariff schedule. It is plain to be
seen that the railroads are getting
ready to harvest the benefits, which'i
t was intended by congress should go
o the California lemon growers, with
he final result that the consumer will
lo all the contributing by paying a:-
vanced prices for lemons.

BEARD QUITS POLITICS
State Senator John S. Beard of Es-
cambia county, one of the most spec-
tacular figures in Florida's political
arena in recent years, has quat :th
game. In the Pensacola Journal he
announces that he will never again
take an active interest in politics
other than the interest which he feels
that every citizen should take.
As a candidate for congress, a del-
egate to the national convention, a
candidate for the United States sen-
ate, and an active participant in ev-
ery political campaign for past yea-'s
in this state, Mr. Beard has occupied
an important and prominent place in
the politics of Florida.
He has attracted national attention
by his efforts to pass a disfranchise-
mnient measure through the legislature
in violation of the fifteenth amend-
ment in order to have Florida carry
up a test case before the supreme
court on this amendment. This pet
measure was forever laid to rest by
the last legislature, after a magniri-
cent fight on his part. During the
last session he attracted s,'tt, w'do
attention by his denunciation of Gov-
ernor Gilchrist, because of the stani
taken by the state's chief executi.-e
relatives to the Wailes-Beard Indian
In his notice of retirement from a-
tive politics the says:
"I have absolutely and permanently
retired from politics. While I shall
always take the interest in public
questions that I think all good citi-
zens should take. I will not again he
a candidate for office, nor will I again
take an active part in politics.
"I shall, from now on. energetically
devote my time and attention excli-
sively to my profession. and am pr,-
pared to practice in all of the state.

PROPHETS OF DISASTER STILL'
The thing most needed by the re-
ligious world of today is to rid Itself
of superstition. That Christianity,
with principles inculcated by a Mas-
ter whose mind was broader than the
depth of the limitless univei could
have developed in the present day to
a point where there are 186 separate
organizations in the United States
alone is the most remarkable outcome
from the history of the ages, which
is presented for the grapplings of j.i-
A few days ago a parcel of fanati-
cal creatures gathered together in
Massachusetts to welcome the ending
of the world. Of course it did not
come; but, nothing daunted, they -e-
vised their calculation and postponed
the event. They but followed in the
footsteps of Miller and other pretend-
ing Christian prophets whose follow-
ers were duped by the personal mag-
netism of the leaders who, most like-
ly. were themselves the slaves of their
own misdirected course of study, aid-1
ed by imagination without judgment
-a mere scatter-brain fancy.
Here, in Florida, there have within
the past year been two cases of the
same character. Neither was a pre-
diction as to the ending of the world.
The first, however, involved no less a
degree of credulity on the part of
those who 'followed the leader"-f3r-
tunately not quite so far as he wen',
for he now reposes, we believe, under
the sod somewhere in the neighbor-
hood of Fort Myers in Lee county.
Teed, the one and only high priest of
the Koreshan community of Estero,
who announced that he would resur-
rect three days after his death an.i
revisit the earth to prove the truth
of his peculiar teachings, is now pay-
ing the debt which all material crea-
tion owes to nature, and in his disso-
lution is preparing to enrich the soil
which gave his body its birth.
The other instance was the predic-
tion of the sect calling themselves
the followers of "The Unknown Ton-
gue"-more popularly known as Holy
Rollers-who, for some reason, best
known to the inhabitants of Tampa,
predicted that that busy city wouid
receive divine judgment and be wipe 1

INDUSTRIAL FUTURE OF THE
That the south is a veritable treae-
ure house of riches is well known,
and that her resources have been de-
veloped in little more than an els-
mentary way is equally well known
tq all who are familiar with the condi-
tions of today.
But there is beginning a new era.
The closing of the cotton statistical
year shows that for the second time
in successive years have the southern
mills used more cotton in manufac-
ture than did the northL By more
than 100,000 bales have they outstrip-
ped their competitors and turned out
a correspondingly larger amount of
goods. This means that the south is
beginning to realize its own strength,
and is taking advantage of its oppor-
tunities as producer an( manufactir-
er. We believe, as do all who can
catch the faintest glimpse of what
the future has in store, that the op-
erations of the years to come will '.e
on a vastly greater scale than any
known before and that it is only a
question of time when the south will
excel in other industrial pursuits as
she does in cotton manufacture.-

THEY HAD A "CINCH"
How did Adam and Eve live at the
north pole, with only fig leaves for
adornment ?-Apalachicola Times.
They lived in their bear-skins.-
How did they live? Why, that's a
"cinch." Of want they never felt the
pinch. They dwelt in airy easy style,
and loved each other all the while.
No thought sartorial could vex; .o
vise-like collars chafed their neck.
Eve's plenteous hair concealed no
"rat," she never had to buy a hat.
For her no dress-forms, pads or stays,
no beauty-killing fashion craze. In
tripping o'er the rain-wet dirt, she
never had to raise her skirt, or fear
the jibes of staring beaus because sh?3
had on common hose. No envious
eyes were there to smile, and say her
clothes were "out of style." No mat-
ter where she chanced to be, no wo-
man better dressed than she!
And Adam-O. the lucky "guy"-no
hats, no shoes, no ties to buy; no
"Wonder what I'll wear today?" No
pesky laundry bills to pay. No rip-
ping seams to make him sore, no col-
lar buttons on the floor. No coats to
hang, no pants to press, no waiting

WHAT HE WAS TELLING HIM.
An Incident That Ended the Conver-

"You are very bald, sir," said the
barber to little Binks as the latter took
up his position in the chair.
"What's that you say?" asked Binks
"I say you are very bald. sir," repeat-

"Who is?"' asked Binks.
"You, sir." said the barber.
"What paper did you see that in?"
"What's that. sir?" asked the bar-
"What newspaper?" repeated Binks.
"I read all the papers, but I didn't see
any reference to this. Was It in one
of the early editions of the evening
"Was what, sir?" queried the puzzled
"This thing you were just telling
me," said Binks.
"Why. I don't remember telling
you"- began the barber.

said Binks. "You said I was very

should it be in the newspapers, sir?"
"Why, because It's news, Isn't it?"
"I shouldn't say that, sir," said the
"Well. If it isn't news. what nto thun-

Special to the Ocala Banner:
President Win. E. Corey of the
United States Steel Corporation, in
aa exclusive interview published in
the Manufacturers' Record 6f Septem-
ber 23, discussing the outlook for the
iron and steel trade, takes an exceed-
ingly optimistic view of business con-
ditions and railroad expansion. Ha
says in part:
"The situation speaks for itself. It
is not a matter of perspective; we
"We are right now in the midst of
the greatest development in the his-
tory of the steel and iron business.
"Substantially all of our plants are
now running, and on practically full
time. and there is no branch of the
steel industry that is backward. The
Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Com-
pany has rail orders ahead to run for
four or five months, and The Carnegia
and Illinolp companies can make no
promises under 60 days. There is a
good demand for all grades of finish-
"Next year will witness a record-
breaking production of steel in every

year will be the greatest in buying

Henry Watterson, it is said, forbids
any reporter on the Courier-Journal
to use the term, "lady." The much-
abused word is slowly going out of
use in the month, where it is bein-,
relegated to the colored folks, who
n cling to its desperately among them-
All selves. The term "woman" means so
much more and has such an honest
ring that it is much preferred by th,
"business woman," the "society wi-
man." and that other blessed creature ?
who is neither, but finds in her bouse-
hold and the rearing of her children
all the career she wants. The mis-
use of the word is forbidden on about
all of the metropolitan newspapers Af
the country, it may be observed.-

The Tribune cannot avoid wonder-
ing what sert of defense will be put
up for Beville, the young man who
ruthlessly murdered an estimable cit-
izen and his wife near Sumterville,
without apparent provocation. This
case will furnish a very apt test of
the efficacy of the law and order in
this state. Surely no one can say
that the killing was in the slightest
degree justifiable.-Tampa Tribune.

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf-
ness. and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin-
ing of the Eustachian tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a rumb-
ling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when ~t is entirely closed, deafness is
the result, and unless the inflamma-
tion can be taken out and this tube
restored to its normal condition, hear-
ing will be destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by ca-
tarrh, which is nothing but an inflam-
ed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured -.v
