Sunday marked a red-letter day In
the history of the Ocala Methodist
Sunday school, It being the occasion
of the annual Rally Day exercises.
The church was crowded to its ut-
most capacity, with many standing,
when the Sunday school hour arrived,
it being estimated that as many as
500 persons were present. Each per-
son present was given at the door
a beautiful souvenir badge in the form
of a tiny national flag, bearing in
black letters the words, "Rally Day."
Great interest and enthusiasm were
manifested by the members of the
school, as well as by the large num-
ber of visitors, and eleven out of four-
teen classes succeeded in gaining a
place on the star "lass roll, a bright
,gilded star being placed opposite the
successful classes, indicating perfect
attendance on this particular occa-
sion. Pretty silk badges were also

hpres-enrted to the members of the star

To the Editor Ocala Banner:
From Washington to Florida is a
far cry. It spans the diametric ex-
tremes of our country. But thought
leaps he distance like the lightning's
flash, and as I sit down to write my
report of the live stock show at the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition I
think of the Marion county fair. I
wish I could transport to Ocala some
of the magnificent pedigreed animals
which makes this one of the most
memorable exhibits of stock ever
held on this continent. But you have
stock enough ift Marion and adjoining
counties, and of sufficiently high char-
acter, to present a very creditable ap-
pearance at your coming fair.
"England expects every man to do
his duty" was the call to action that
stirred patriotic impulse to achieve
victory. The friends of Marion coun-

Two pathfinding cars passed
through Ocala on Monday. One was
a Chalmers-Detroit, going from Tam-
pa to Jacksonville; the other an E. F.
and M., returning from Jacksonville
to Tampa. The former contained a
bunch of boosters for the "cigar city"
in the persons of Messrs. Isaac C.
Craft, Samuel N. Honaker, E. Roy
Hinson, Forest J. Hyde and David
Schein. Fully armed and equipped,
this party left the Tribune building at
two o'clock Monday morning and ar-
rived in Ocala t 10:45. They came by
way of Dade City, crossing the With
lacoochee river at Lacoochee, an-1
came on by Wildwood. They left a
little after 11 o'clock for Jacksonville,
and if they made the trip there in as
good a 'time as our Ocala autoist they
should have arrived there at 6 o'clock
in the afternoon, or by 7 o'clock at
the latest.
The "official pathfinding car," sent
out by the Tampa Times reached
Ocala from Jacksonville at 1:50 yes-
terday afternoon and after partaking
of a lunch at Keting's. left for Tampa
at 3:10. Mr. J. H. Spencer of the
Ocla Gas Engine Works. Mr. Edw.
Holder and the Messrs. Kibler piloted
them as far as the Withlacoochee riv-
er at Stokes' Ferry, and, barring acci-
dents and making reasonably good
time the car should have arrived .it
Tampa at 6:30 o'clock. The distance
by Stokes' Ferry to Tampa is only 91
miles, and the road is fairly good, and
to the river from Ocala is as straight
as the crow flies.
The party in the Times' pathfinding
car were Messrs. B. M. Reed, L. D.
Reagin, Thomas Nathan Henderson
and Capt. C. S. Washington, the latter
gentleman representing the Tampa
Automobile Club, and Mr. Reagin the
representative of the Times.
In coming from Jacksonville these
gentlemn came by way of Baldwin.
Highlands, Stark, Waldo, Gainesvil'e,
Micanopy, Evinston, McIntosh, to

The route marked out by these path-
finders will mean much for the terri-
tory traversed, as efforts will be made
for a good road all the way from Tam-
pa to Jacksonville and it will be the
official route for autoists from other
states who are desirous of making a
trip across Florida.

The number is not few which will
regard with humor the announcement
made recently by Hon. John S. Beard,
his purpose to retire permanently
from active politics, but to others
there will be a feeling of genuine re-
gret that this is so.
Mr. Beard has had a variety of ex-
periences in politics, having been un-
successful as a candidate for repre-
sentative from the third district in
congress, and in the last race, as low
man in the race for the United States
senate, aside from contests of minor
importance in which he engaged with
more success. He was a delegate to
the national convention in 1904 and
has been in the state senate for the
last four years.
Mr. Beard has good reasons, no
doubt, for reaching the conclusion
S*hat It is best for him to quit the
. ime. The man who is successful in
;ve tics, if he be honest, generally
e.t without compensating emolu-
ments; much more is it a losing play
for the unsuccessful candidate. In
his two races for a seat in the nation-
al assembly, Mr. Beard must have
spent a competence, including the
time he devoted to the canvass along
with the actual money spent, although
it is likely that he spent less than the
majority of candidates do when they
go in for congress. Having given the
best years of his life, or a goodly part
of them, to chasing the vain bauble tt
is not surprising that he should be
disheartened, standing at the apex of
his maturity and realizing the impos-
sible attainment of the distant hills.
But there are no regrets in the simple
announcement that comes from Mr.
Beard, though there is undoubtedly
the bitterness of defeat masked be-
We said there were those who
would regret that the Escambia poli-
tician is to be heard no more in the
forum. There is need for such men as
John Beard, quixotic and tempestuous
as he is, in public affairs. The worth
of such men consists in the regula-
tive effect their fault finding and ob-
jections have on the men who are
seeking positions and those already
in office. Tom Watson retired from
politics is much more useful than
Tom Watson in politics ever was. He
elected Hoke Smith governor of Geor-
gia and when Hoke forsook the prin-
ciples upon which he was elected he
defeated him for re-election. We
would not draw a comparison between
Tom Watson and John Beard the sug-
gested analogy is only in the relative-
ness of their positions. John Beard
is essentially a radical. If he happens
to be on the conservative side he is
a radical conservative. He has been
more picturesque than forceful, more
chimerical than credible, seeing more
in the romantic than the real. Yet.
without examining too critically his
work it may be ventured that he has
served his state well though results
cannot be counted as one would the
bag from a day's hunt. It may ne a
weakness, yet we confess it. We like
John Beard because he typifies in his
personal as well as his mental accou-
trement the statesmen of the old
south. The type is not numerous, and
perhaps it is well enough for us that
it is not, yet for those who revere the
principles, the traditions and the
memories of the past we have the pro-
foundest respect. John Beard is one
who bears from brow to bootheel the
redolence of the lines-

o'clock in the afternoon. Heavy rain
was accompanied by a strong gale,
which unroofed houses, uprooted

The principal damage found today
was to the citrus crops, immense

No fatalities are reported in the

the extent of the damage there noth-

The greatest individual loss in Miami
was the demolition of the March Villa,

Beautiful De ttration in P
Speak-Goes to New Yo

Poughkeepsie, N. Y.. Oct. S, 19o9.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
If the Hudson-Fulton celebration
was on as grand a scale in New York
City as it was in Poughkeepsie, ac-
cording to the size of the two places,
I know that it must have been one of
the most imposing and dazzling sights
that has ever been seen in this coun-

Instead of Friday being the day set
apart for the celebration here it was
on .Monday, and it was a sight very
beautiful to behold.
The parade was about two miles
long, or longer, composed of some
twenty or more bands, soldiers, hin.e-
jackets. firemen, school children, izens, etc. As the great pro-e. sion
passed up and down the residential
and business sections of the city it
presented an imposing and inspiring!
picture. The parade terminated at
Eastman Park, where everyone gath-
ered to listen to an address by Gov-
ernor Hughes. The governor spoke
for about ten minutes, paying a big
compliment to Poughkeepsie. He
said that he was glad to be among its
people and the people of Duchess
county; that of all the pretty sights
that he had seen during the entire
Hudson-Fulton celebration that none
were so pretty as he had seen here.
and of course everybody enjoyed the
"taffy," and applauded it to the echo.
It was, though, a grand sight to me
to see such a large gathering. There
must have been sixty thousand people
in the park. I was in ten feet of the
governor. I got a position on the root.
of a tree and, being tall, could see
over the heads of the vast concourse
of the expectant and eager throng.
I saw the blue-jackets in'their white
caps, the officers in their brilliant uni-
forms, the different bands in their
showy costumes, which presented
sueb a picture as I had never seen be-
Just before the governor spoke, the
different bands of more than a hun-
dred pieces, played "America," and af-
ter he had finished they played "The
Star Spangled Banner," and it was
so beautiful and inspiring that it made
the blood surge through my veins.
After supper everyone had a gay
time on the streets and avenues, beat-
ing drums, blowing horns, ringing cow
bells, throwing confetti, yelling, etc.
It was a night long to be remembered.
I went up to Newburgh Friday, a
place up the river about the size of
Poughkeepsie. The celebration was
on the order of the one here, but was
not on so grand a scale. But what
sounded better to me *han anyth4naI
that I had heard since I had been
here was the first piece the hand
struck up. I was standing immediate-
ly in front of the grand stand. when
to my surprise there burst upon my
ears the familiar strains of "Dixie!"
1 was with Morris Smith, and both of
us began involuntarily shouting to theI
very top of out voices in honor of the
compliment paid to our section.
After the parade, Morris, another
school chum and I decided to go to
New York, as we had heard that all
the battleships were to be at New-
burgh, and as it was not true we were
badly disappointed. We wanted to
see the battleships, and failed to go
to New York during the big demon-
stration. 0
After buying our tickets the three
of us had $11. It would seem that we
could not see very much for that, but
we did, and when we got back to
Poughkeepsie Morris had 10 cents,
Harmon had 5 cents, and I had about
50 cents, but we had the recollection
of a fine trip. ,
We got to New York about 7 o'clock
p. m. We walked and rode up and
down Broadway. and the electric dis-
plays on the majestic buildings were
grand, indeed. There were thousands
and thousands of people walking the
streets in every direction. We went
to see "The Midnight Sons" at the

Ex-Game Warden McCraney of
Stanton was in Ocala Saturdy with
a wanoaload of hogs which he sold to
Mr. G. D. Hogan. An investigation
showed that Mr. Hogan is fatteping
hogs for the Ocala market and al-
feady has three hundred very fat ones
which are ready to be slaughtered.

Mr. D. W. Davis has returned from
Atlantic City, where he went to at-
tend the annual session of the South-
eastern Tariff Association. He went
as a delegate from Florida, which re-
flected his standing in insurance cir-

nessed the great Hudson-Fulton cele-
bration in New York, saw the arctic
explorers and took in all the sights
from New Jersey to Florida.

Mr. Hewitt, manager of the Marion
Farms, was in Ocala Saturday and
stopped long enough to say that the
experimental crop of tobacco turned
out far better than was anticipated
and the promoters are more than sat-

was 20 per cent. better than the crops
grown in and around Quincy. ,

After leaving Interlachen Septem-

Mrs J. W. Miller, district president,
program work has been pushed for
the convention toin November at Orlan-
On Sunday the two societies in this
lively town combined in a good union
meeting at the Christian church.

God's Will

Just to be tender, just to be true,
Just to be glad the whole day through,
Just to be merciful, Just to be mild,
Just to be trustful as a child;
Just to be gentle and kind and sweet,
Just to be helpful with willing feet;
Just to be cheery when things go
Just to drive sadness away with a
Whether the hour is dark or bright,
Just to be loyal to God and right;
Just to beheve that God knows best,
Just in His promises ever to rest;
Just to let love be our daily key,
That is God's will for you and me.
A letter from State President Win-
nard received last week, says of his
Juniors in the Tampa Heights Presby-
terian church: "We are to have a C.
E social nighth, in charge of the H. to
J. (alphabetical) division. They are
planning a fine time. Have decorat-
ed in state colors." We hope to have
an after-it-is-over account of this live-
ly good time.
Sanford Presbyterian young people
are thinking of organizing at some
future time, and an invitation has
been given them to be well represent-
ed at the Orlando convention, even if
their organization is not affected by
that time.
What do you think of a society that
disbands, and year after year keeps
receiving report blanks, circulars and
letters from district and state unioh
officers, and still never tell them that
there is now no Endeavor life in the
church? Seems most too bad to be
true, but it can be true, and it is a
real happening of this Endeavor year.
We hope these Christians will see this
mention and that it will prick their
consciences. Fortunately there are
not many societies of that kind.
"Programs mixed with brains" is
what the Christian Endeavor World
said of some that were recently used
In other states. That is the kind we
are to have in our four fall conven-
tions. Watch and see if this is not a
true prediction.
The Endeavor topic, "Pastor Aids,"
for October 10th, is one out of the us-
ual run of such themes. The question
is asked, "How can we help our pas-
tor?" to which Christian Endeavor
World gives valuable advice under
the following lines: Advertising the
pastor, running errands for the pas-
tor, Endeavorers in the church prayer
meeting, a pastor's aid committee, a
sermon committee, Endeavorers in
the Sunday evening service, etc. Let
us endeavor to take this subject for
October 10th to our own hearts and
societies, meanwhile praying that we
will be a greater help in future days
to our pastors.

"Dr. J. L. Skipworth, one of the
most prominent physicians in :his sec-

this afternoon by W. H. Thomas, fol-
lowing an altercation several days

demanded an apology for alleged re-
marks made concerning him, reqtir-
ing Thomas to get on his knees.
Thomas made the apology, and as Dr.
Skipwortb turned to walk away, pri":-

fired both barrels. Dr. Skipworth
was taken to Ocala .and is expected

not in the school room, and taking
that for a text the educators who hon-
ored us with their presence said that
the greatest resource of a state was
an educated manhood and woman-
hood. And along this line they pre-
sented some very pertinent facts for
us to digest and assimilate.
The gentlemen visiting us were
State Superintendent Holloway. Cap-

ident of Rollins College, Prof. J. M.

These gentlemen visited the Ocala
High School at S;30 and all gave
short, animated talks, which were
much appreciated .and which will not
be without its effects upon the schol-
At 10:30 o'clock they repaired to
the court house, where quite a num-
ber of people had gathered to hear ad-
dresses from them.
Superintendent Holloway presided
and Superintendent Brinson acted as
master of ceremonies.
Superintendent Brinson regretted
that every seat in front of him was not
occupied. He said that at a conven-
tion of superintendents, after discuss-
ing the small attendance at our pub-
lic schools, an educational campaign
was suggested to arouse our people to
greater interest in the subject of ed-
ucation, from which sprung the pres-
ent movement.
After quite a nice address Superin-
tendent Brinson introduced Superin-
tendent Holloway.
He thanked the vari, iV county
boards for the liberality in which they
met this movement in the matter of
appropriating funds to meet the le-
gitimate requirements, and thanked
the newspapers for the space they
gave to the movement and the ardor
they showed toward it.
He said that while all the newspa-
pers had been liberal, that the Times-
Union of Jacksonville had sent a spe-
cial representative along with them
so as to keep the people of the state
posted as to their daily proceedings,
adn thus awaken an interest in this
deeply important subject.
At this stage of the proceedings Su-
perintendent Holloway introduced
Mr. Sams of the Times-Union. whore

Captain Lynch was next introduced.
It need not have been stated that he
was from the Emerald Isle, for his
wit was a tell-tale of his birth. After
a few brief remarks, punctured with
wit, he told of the real purpose of the
campaign, which in point of fact em-
braced everything that related or was
co-related to education. The propa-
ganda as he stated it was a fetching
one, and before taking his seat Capt.
Lynch made himself solid at least
with the female portion of his audi-
ence when he said that he stood fiat-;
footed and unequivocally in favor of
having at least one woman on our
school boards, and one or more mem-
bers of our boards of trustees. That
where women were members at
school boards in the west the schools
were set on fire with life and activity.

good indication. He spoke in exceed-
ing praise of Superintendent Brinson.
Said that real merit was hid under
his modesty. He knew him and would
not say it if he did not feel it and
knew that it were true. He also im-
mersed Prof. Workman in a shower
bath of flowers. He happily had a
name that fitted him and worked right

ing and impressive speaker, and in
h4s half hour's talk yesterday not a
word was lost.
Why, he asked, was England jeal-
ous and growing more and more Jeal-
ous of Germany? It was not because
she was anticipating a declaration of
war. It was because Germany was
making inroads on her trade and com-
merce. And the impelling force be-
hind Germany in her upward and on-
ward movement was to be found In
her schools, colleges and universities.
Germany is educating her sons and
daughters along thorough and prac-
tical lines, and education properly ap-
plied is obliged to produce results.
The speaker also cited the example
of New England. Her people, subject-
ed to the rigors of an inhospitable cli-
mate, a sterile soil--but a school
house in every valley and a college on
every hill. Now see her moneyed
wealth as compared with other and
richer states in soil and climate.

route was not laid out as one of those
to be surveyed by the board of engi-
neers having the work in charge, and,
therefore no examination of the line
ba beea made.
In accordance with your request I
will, however, make an examination of
the line, and if it appears to be a de-
strable route for the canal proposed,
namely, a 12-foot canal, the matter
will be taken up with the board with
a view to securing authorization of a
While Mr. Martin may be entirely
right in believing this line to be the
best available for a 40-foot canal ex-
cavated to gulf-St. Johns river levels
-yet it may be an impracticable
route, or at least a very expensive one
for a 12-foot lock canal.
You. of course, and I am sure Mr.
Martin will. appreciate the fact that
in a 12-foot canal project our cheap-
est line may be one which has good
water supply at a point as near the
top of our highest divide as possible,
in order to eliminate heavy cutting.
while in a gulf level canal we might
select a line which had no water sup-
ply along it. depending entirely on in-

senators the name of George Frisbie
Hoar was the most familiar to us.
But, worse and worse, because the
brilliant George McDuffe was born in

senator from that state, and by reason
of making these blunders we were se-
verely brought to task by a brilliant
member of the United States from
this state.
Historian Tom Watson calls atten-
tion to the fact that in his editorial
of September 16, in the New York

"John C. Calhoun of South Carolina

Dear and familiar sentence! How

Julius Caesar Smith came forward,

catching at his top-knot, the tiny chap

sing-song, usual in such cases, and
"They tell us, sir, that we are
weak," winding up with the glorious
climax, "Give me liberty. or give me
It was Patrick Henry who said,
"Eternal vigilance is the price of lib-

speech. John C. Calhoun belonged to
a much later era, as Brother Graves
well knows. All of us make these lit-

Mr. Claude L'Engle, who announced
his candidacy for the United States
senate some months ago, and who has
visited many sections of the state in
advocacy of his election, was in Ocala
Thursday. He is not at all discourag-
ed. and will keep on the firing line
until the primaries are held and the
votes are counted.
His declaration of principles and
definition of democracy would take up
more than a whole side of the Ocala

Banner. He is making a house-to-
house canvass and 'is distributing his
literature in a very thorough and sys-
tematic manner, and he is determined
that it shall be placed in the hands of
every voter.
He says that his platform is all
right, because he is the author of it.
Summed up briefly, Mr. L'Engle
stands for:
The People's Right to Rule.
The People's Ability to Rule.
The People's Determination to Rule.
Mr. L'Engle is a very caustic and
brilliant writer and if he should be
elected to the senate he would occupy
a place not unlike the late John J. In-
galls, to whom he bears a very strong
r enmblanen in this In6*ive rritnem

the lorida ship camal would be, would
free them from the barnacles and save
them the cost of dry docking.
There are a great many other argu-
ments used in favor of a ship canal
across Florida, and now would be a
good time to agitate it *
We hope that Ocala will take some
interest in the matter and that some
of our leading men will meet Engineer
Spalding when he visits Ocala.
This is a great age for engineering
feats and a ship canal across Florida
and one across the Isthmus of Pana-
ma would be two great achievements.


Some years rgo in the progress of
an editorial we got somewhat mixed
in our historical data.

the then well known senator from
Mosuachusetts. Why we should have

could understand, for next to our own

The opportunities for the son of
poor parents to make a success in
life seem, in retrospect, to have been
exceedingly more numerous a gener-
ation ago than they are today. To
have been born in a log cabin and to
have been a pupil in a Little Red
School House, were actual advantages
once to the candidate for political pre-
ferment. A boy from the country
gained employment where the city
youngster was refused. But though
there is a smaller -tendency among
self-made men to boast of their vic-
tories than there used to* be., the
numbers of those living who have
climbed to summits from the lower-
most levels are still sufficient to prove
an inspiration to every poor and am-
bitious boy.
A writer in the Juvenile Court Rec-
ord tells of a list he has made of
1000 successful men in America. They
are not mere money-makers ,but those
who have "given us new conceptions
of steam, electricity, construction
work. education and art." The ori-
gins of these men were:
Three hundred started as farmers'

Two hundred started as messenger
Two hundred were newsboys.
One hundred were printers' appren-
One hundred were apprenticed in
Fifty began at the bottom of rail-
way work.

'a st a the amte foa easing thk
state. On the et h ma the Tribune
ea alw e the mif-eh friend
of toem carponatons, so meU so in
fet that a great many people have
bom time to time, characteried this
paper as a corporation organ. The
Tribune has always contended that
the o.lt..k-.-. and especially the
railroads were the people and enter-
prises who are working *widuouxly
to develop the resources of Florida
and for that reason it has championed
their cause on any and all occasions,
when they were, according to this pa-
per's way of thinking, in the right.
There is one thing, however, that the
Tribune desires to call the attention
of the railroads to, and that is an
equalized freight rate in this state.
While these corporations are spending
millions of dollars to enhance the val-
ue of their own property and give the
people adequate railroad facilities,
both freight and passenger, at the
same time their rates should be equi-
tably adjusted so that people all over
the state could realize a small profit
on their legitimate business, after the
railroad tariffs have been paid. As an
illustration of this fact the Tribune
will state that the freight rate on
white paper from New York to Jack-
sonville is eighteen cents a hundred;
to Tampa it is thirty-five cents per
hundred. We have no kick to make
on these rates. The rate, however,
oa the same commodity from Tampa
to Tallsha see is ninety-four cents a
hundred; therefore a merchant or
business concern in Tampa could not
possibly do business with Tallahas-
see. Thus the railroads by their ar-
bitrary methods of manipulating the
rates, are injuring the very people
who are assisting in building up their
corporations and developing the re-
sources of Florida. The high "mucky-
mucks" of these corporations should
get together and see that a freight
rate from Tampa to interior towns is
established, which will permit Tampa
business concerns to do business
throughout the state in competition
with eastern and western people.
It might be a fact that Tampa ships
very little to Tallahssee. but it is a
fact that Tampa never will be able to
do business with, west Florida and
other interior sections until the rail-
roads give rates which will permit a
small profit to the people who are
working year in and year out to de-
velop Florida as a state of popula-
tion, commerce and wealth.
What is true of the Tallahassee sit-
uation also applies to every inland
town in Florida. Every merchant
who reaches out for trade and every
fruit and vegetable grower who tills
the soil will testify to the truthfulness
of this assertion.
Is it possible that the railroads, by
their incapacity to grasp the situation
are going to retard the prosperity of
the business factors who are consci-
entiously working to build up the
state and at the same time minimize
their own earnings and jeopardize
their own interests by a short-sighted-
ness that ill becomes people of recog-
nized ability to manage the railroads
for the benefit of the public, as well
as the masters who they are laboring
to serve? We hope not.-Tampa Trib-

The Land of Flowers is on the eve
of an exciting campaign.
Five candidates for the United
States senate have already entered
the lists subject to the action of the
democratic primary, which is 'to be
held within the next few months.
And, according to the well-posted
Tampa Tribune, a man with less than
$30,000 to spend upon the election
cannot hope ,to make an effective bid
for the toga.
The inference to be drawn from this
statement is two-fold.
In the first place, each of the five
candidates who have appeared upon
the scene has been able to produce
the money bags.
In the second place crisp bank
notes are liable to play an important
part in the battle of ballots which is
soon to be waged on the peninsular.

mon upon the perilous tendencies of

going any further for proof. Editor

Mr. J. H. Reese. one of the editorial
writers on the Miami Metropolis. con-
tributes more than a page article toi
'the Manufacturer's Record of Balti-
more, under date of October 7th. on
the reclamation of the Everglades. Mr.
Reese tells of the cost and the pro-
gress of the work. The number of the
dredges is to be increased, and the
work is moving steadily ,forward
without any cost to the state, owing
to the very excellent arrangements
made with those who have purchasEd
large tracts of lands in the section to
be drained, who are taking their
chances on the success of the scheme.
The lands are being sold very rapid-
ly, mostly to buyers from the north-
west, and they have had their ag.ints
on the spot to examine the lands and
inspect the drainage operations.
Mr. Reese estimates that within the
next five years there will not be Wles
than one hundred thousand people
added to the population of that see-
tion and perhaps the number may
reach two hundred and fifty thousand
Within that period he estimates thba
Miami will have a population of So.-
Besides the growing of all sorts of
semi-tropical and tropical fruits ant
flowers, Mr. Reese thinks that th-
greatest good to the whole country
will be in the production of the sugar
Under this head Mr. Reese says
"There are 3,600,000 acres of lani
tree of trees and shrubs, with a co.
ering of grass only, which can t1w
burned off, costing nothing to clear
it and make it ready for cultivation

convincing testimony on the point let

gently that the same men who consti-

the majority of that board under Gil-

have had to do any great amount of
coaning to get them to give up the

the $12,000 check regulation, will Ed-
itor Crawford please tell us whaL

questing the $12,000 check. For years

If Bartow would increase her trade

wlRl have eight boxes, two on each
flower and on each side. It will posses
all the appearance of the most up-to-
date theater in its construction and
farntshinas, and will be a constant de-
light to the people of Ocala, for it will
fill a long felt want. Too much
praise cannot be given those who have
had it in charge.
Mrs. Lee K. Brown and lovely little
daughter of Savannah, Ga., are in
Ocala on a visit to Mrs. William An-
derson, on Fort King avenue. Mrs.
Brown spent several months in Ocala
last fall and made quite a number of
warm friends at that 'time. who will
be greatly pleased to see her again.
Mrs. Anderson will entertain a num-
ber of her friends this afternoon at
bridge to meet Mrs. Brown. and the
ladies who will be her guests are an-
ticipating a charming afternoon.

A movement is on foot for a union
depot for Ocala. It seems to us that,
this will be a good thing both for the
railroads and the people. The Sea-'
board depot is somewhat ancient, out
of style and out of repair, and a new
building will soon be necessary any-
way. It will eliminate for the A. C.
L. the tremendous grade it is forced
to climb every day, ani which has
been prolific in accidents and a con-
stant menace to life. Besides, its
freight depot occupies a place in the
middle of the street, and it will be
forced to build elsewhere soon. It
can move its freight yards to its prop-
erty further south, and reach it by
utilizing the lime kiln spurs. The
other roads coming in can add their
quota towards the new depot,
making the cost lighter all 'round.
Now is the accepted time for it. Be-
sides it will save the A. C. L. passing
directly through the heart of the city,
spoiling one of its principal streets,
and always being more or less of a
menace to the life and security of our

ftMends went up from New Tork in a
pedal ear. The honeymoon win be
peIt na Germany.
Smusical circles both bride and
bridroom have attained fame. Miss
Clements made her debut three years
ago as a concert singer. Her voice is
a rich contralto. Mr. Gabrilowitsch
came to America first in 1900, herald-
ed as the successor to Rubenstein.
His career since then In both this
country and Europe has placed him in
the front rank of pianists. He is thir-
ty-one years old, the son of a lawyer
of St. Petersburg.
There is nothing humorous in this
situation to Mark Twain. The vocal
strain of a persistent but unsuccess-
ful struggle for the past three weeks
to pronounce correctly the name of
his son-in-law has been a grave real-
ity to the humorist. He has recorded
his efforts to learn German words in
Vienna. To be confronted now by ap-
palling Russian consonants is feared
by his friends to be too serious for one
of his advanced years.
The romance between the pianist
and Miss Clemens began last winter,
when he saved her life in a runaway
accident. Some months later when he
was in a New York hospital for a se-
vere operation she was an anxious

This wedding follows rather closely
upon the mixed situation that result-
ed from the marriage of Mark Twain's
secretary. Miss Isabel Lyon, to his
business manager, Ralph W. Ashcroft.
While these two were abroad on
their honeymoon last summer an at-
tachment was placed on their country
bouse nla Farmington, Conn., and a suit
was brought to recover $4000, which
It was alleged, had been overdrawn
by the secretary. There was also dis-
pute about a small house called The
Lobater Pot, adjoining the Clemens
place, which the humorist had given
his secretary. The Asherofts brought
suits for defamation of character.
Suddenly everything was settled out
of court. A statement made public
at the time of the controversy charged
all the troubles to jealousy on the
part of Miss Clemens.
Civil Service Commission Wants
Western People to Apply
Washington, D. C. Oct. 7.-The
United States civil service commis-
son announmes that a very small pro-
portion of the applications thus far
fled for the examination to be hqld
October 23rd next, for position in the
census bureau, are from the residents
of more distant states.
As the census act provides for the
aApo.thk.m.ent of appointments among
the states and territories, in accord-
ance with the law of apportionment,
the commpsiuon calls attention to the
fact that present indications are that
these distant states will probably fail
to receive their full share of the ap-
posntniwts, unless more residents of

such states apply for the examina-
It is expected that about three
thousand appointments will be made
from the examination, which is sched-
uled to be held on October 23rd, 1909.
in all the state and territories. These
appointments will be for terms of six
months or two years, adn wi!l averag-'
about one year in length. The en-
trance salary will be $600 per annum,
and promotion to at least $900 per an-
num will be reasonably rapid for those
who render satisfactory service.
Under the census law selections
from the eligible register will be bade
in the order of rating, and in accord-
ance with the law of apportionment,
so that all persons will have an equal
chance of appointment.
Applicants must be between the
age of 18 and 50 years, except that
persons honorably discharged from
the military or naval service, by rea-
son of disability resulting from
wounds or sickness incurred in the
line of duty, may be examined with-
out regard to age, and except that
boys who have reached the age of 16
years and have not reached the age
of 18 years, will -be permitted to take
the examination, and if they pass,
will be eligible for appointment as
messenger boys only.
It is understood that the census bu-
reau will make some appointments
from this examination about January
1. 1910, but the majority of such ap-
polatments will be made between
April and August, 1910.
Application forms and further in-
formation may be obtained by ad-

very fastidious if he cannot find in
this country one to suit him. Accord-
ing to the figures recently issued by
the census bureau, which has complet-
ed a religious census, there are a hun-
dred and eighty-six religious denomi-
nations in the United States. If, how-
ever, a man cannot find a satisfactory
denomination, he can make his choice
among 1079 independent churches. A
French visitor to America, M. Faguet,
is quoted in the Literary Digest as
saying that the sect sin this country
"may be innumerable, but they are all

alike." Certainly, it is true that the
old doctrinal differences which used
to set commumues by the ears have
been fast disappearing; but a visit in
turn to a Roman Catholic cathedral,
a Mormon temple, a Christian science
service, and a negro revival would, we
believe, persuade any foreigner that
there was still variety of religious ex-
perience and method in America. The
census bureau reports that the church-
es are growing faster than the popula-
tion. There is nothing in this report
which confirms those statements con-
cerning the decadence of institutional
religion in America which are com-
monly accepted as true because of
their continued repetition. The last
religious census before this was made
in 1890. Between that date and the
close of 1906, the last year in-
cluded in this latest report, the in-
crease of population of continental
United States was 33.8 per cent. Dur-
ing the same period, in the number of
communicants or church members,
there was an increase of 60.4 per
cent. In the number of church edi-
fices, an increase of 35.3 per cent.,
and in the value of church property,
an increase of 8j.1 per cent.
In every particular, except in the
number of church organizations, the
rate of increase in religious bodies
has exceeded the rate of increase in
the population at large. Of the total
population in 1890 the reported church
membership represented 32.7 per
cent., and in 1906 it represented 39.1
per cent. The greater part of this
increase has been won by the Roman
Catholic church. In the sixteen years
its numbers nearly doubled. Its per-
centage of increase was 93.5 per cent.
Nevertheless, though the Protestant
bodies increased at a much lower
rate, they have grown more rapidly
than the population. Their percentage
of increase has been 44.8 per cent. To
put it in another way, of the 6.4 per
cent. gain in church membership In
proportion to the population, 4.4 'per
cent. is Roman Catholic, 1.8 per cent.

is Protestant. Among the Protestant
denominations, the Disciples (includ-
ing the Church of Christ) made a
gain of 78.2 per cent. The Lutheran
bodies -follow closely with a gain of
71.6 per cent., and the Protestant
Episcopal church comes closely after,
with a gain of 66.7 per cent. The Ad-
ventists and Baptists are more than
half again as numerous as they were
in 1890. Remarkable percentages of
increase are also set down to the
credit of Eastern Orthodox churches,
Independent churches and Christian
scientists. One of the most striking
figures in the whole report is that
which records the increase in the
number of Jewish organizations--
231.9 per cent! In connection with
the increase of Roman Catholic and
Eastern Orthodox communicants, and
of Jewish organizations, it should be
remembered that it is largely due to
immigration. It is to be noted also
that in these bodies membership is
on a different basis from that which
prevails in almost all Protestant de-
The process by which certain de-
nominations have united and others
have joined in co-operative move-
ments is of far greater significance
than the merely nominal increase in
the number of religious bodies. There
is much for the church to do in this
country which it has ignored and
neglected. There are many signs
that other organizations are wresting
from the church some of its leader-
ship. Nevertheless, if these figures
mean anything they indicate that the
church is, materially at least, in a
healthy state of growth.-The Oani

Who say *Tears are not Minaly
The highest type of manhood that
ever blessed earth with his presence
wept on more than one occasion.
Jesus wept!
What words to chronicle
Of Heaven's Exalted King!
What comfort to our storm-toss'd,
Sorrowing souls they bring,
As, ever kept
In sweet remembrance,
We fondly cherish them-
The purest, brightest gems
In sorrow's diadem.
Jesus wept!
Compassion of a God
For human miseries!
What sweet celestial gales
Of heavenly symphonies
His great heart swept,
That e'en the music of His grief
Could soothing comfort bring,
To rob the conquerer, Death.
Of his envenomed sting.

Jesus wept!
Not only for the griefs
Of frail humanity
In this short life of pain.
But for the blind serenity
With which they slept;
The scorning multitude
That daily gathered near,
In curious, eager crowds,
His wondrous words to hear.
Jesus wept!
Yea, wept for you and me!
Through all the centuries
Since flowed those priceless drops
For man's calamities,
Hath ever crept,
Amid our brightest joys,
As passed the rolling years
A solemn, sweet refrain
Born of a Savior's tears.

An amusing incident occurred at one
of our down-east churches some years
ago. The clergyman gave out on a
pleasant Sabbath afternoon in July:
"I love to steal a while away
From every cumberingg care,
And spen'i the hour of set Lig day
In humble, grateful prayer.'
The regular chorister being absent,
the duty devolved upon the good old
deacon, M-, who commenced,
"I love to steal--"
and then bagged down-and raising
his voice to a still higher pitch, he
sung, &

"I love to steal-"

and, as before he concluded he had
got the wrong, pitch, and deploring
that he had not his "pitchtuner," he
determined to succeed if he died in
the attempt.
By this time all the old ladies were
tittering behind their fans, while the
faces of the "young 'uns" were all in
a broad grin. At length, after a des-
perate cough, he made a final demon-
stration, and roared out-
"I love to steal- "
This effort was too much; every
other but the godly and eccentric par-
son was laughing, who arose, and with
the utmost coolness, said,
"Seeing our brother's propensities,
let us pray!"
It is needless to say that but few
of that congregation heard the prayer.;


The summer days are bright and fair,:
There's flowery fragrance in the air,
And rural beauty everywhere,
At Sutherland.
Soft echoes through the woodlands

The breezes waft the breath of spring,
And sweet-voiced songsters gaily sing,
At Sutherland.
Green forests stretch, before our eyes,
The silent bay in splendor lies,
Reflecting back the azure skies,
At Sutherland.


boats glide swiftly to and fro,
angler tempts the fish below,
in the surf we love to go,
At Sutherland.

Then o'er the scene the shadows
The golden sun sinks in the deep.
And nature come swith balmy sleep,
At Sutherland.
Bright tints announce the coming day,
Vacation time soon fades away,
But when we're here we long to stay-
At Sutherland.

The above gem from the pen of Mrs.
Little will be appreciated by every
one who has been to Sutherland, or
may come. Sister Little and the
bright little folks have spent the
summer here. and have added much
to our society and church life. Mrs.
Little is a writer of good reputation
whose articles are eagerly sought.
Since she came here, her pen has not
been idle, and Sutherland's praise has
been sung and written to many places.
We are sorry to Pee our friends re

their talents working for Southern
College. We hope to give other arti-
cles from this consecrated authoress.

P-maeola, I, Oct. L 190*.
Il Ptor Peanmioa Jowmal:
la In you ise of the 10th inst., I no-
ties a clipplag from the MiUgan Sun
as follows:
"With two cdMa ist in the field
west lorida has absolutely no chance
whatever of winning the United
States senatorship in the coming cam-
pan. The friends of Messrs. Bloont
ad Reeves ought to bring sufclept
force to bear to cause one of them to
come down. With one of them out of
the way. west Florida would have an
easy task of Winning the sensor."
Other things being equal, I believe
that west Florida is entitled to the
United States senator to be nominat-
ed in the approaching primary. The
two United States senators are now
from Jacksonville; Governors Fleming
and Broward were both from this
same city; Governors Mitchell and
Jennings and the present governor
were chosen from south Florida; the
last president of the senate was from
south Florida, and the last speaker of
the house of representatives was from
Jacksonville; the present congress-
man for the third congressional dis-
trict is from the extreme eastern por-
tion of the district, as was his prede-
There is not a single cabinet officer
from west Florida-a thickly populat-
ed section of the state with large and
varied business interests and contain-
ing several seaports, including the
best harbor in the south and the larg-
est lumber and timber port in the
world. Therefore, in all reason and
Justice, if the views, character and
ability of west Florida's candidate are
such as to command the confidence
and respect of the voters of the state,
he should succeed.
It is but natural to suppose that
those inclined to admit the justice of
west Florida's claim, but who are un-
acquainted with her candidates, would
be guided somewhat by the relative
numerical strength of these candi-
dates in their own section among the
people who know them most intimate-
ly. rather than entirely by hasty judg-
ments formed upon short acquaint-
ance during a heated campaign.
I am so strongly convinced that*
there is a fair chance of success, even
under present conditions, that I am
willing to stake my time and energies
upon the effort. I feel, however, that
west Florida should have the oppor-
tunity of presenting her choice un-
trammeled. In order that she may do
so. I will agree to bear one half the
expense (assuming that the whole ex-
pense would not exceed $3000. and I
regard this as ample) of a preliminary
primary to be held in west Florida,
that is, in all counties west of the
Chattahoochee river, for the purpose
of determining west Florida's choice
as between her two candidates.
This primary should be participated
in by all electors qualified to vote in
the last primary. If I should fall to
receive a majority of the votes cast
