DEATH OF MR. CUMMER

in the, do ath of Mr. Wellington VWil.
son ('tininier .1 twksonille loses one of
her ntio.t prominent citizens and her
foremost philanthropist. It was large -
ly through Mr. C'ummer's instrurn-i:-
taliti's that tihe magnificent Y. ..1. .
A. building was recently e'reced in
.lJackson% ille. Hle took a personal
pride, in its erection andi his own do-
nationl was onie hundred thousand 1dol-
lars. This is the largest amount ev .,
suiliscribedI to any charitable instit'i
tion in this stato by any single indi-
vidutal. It was one of his last public
charities and its completion and use
was one of the greatest joys of M1r.
Cummer's life. With his approbation
and active support Mrs. Cummer es-
tablished and maintained three free
kindergartens, and his charities were
extended along other lines.
Mr. Cummer came to Florida from
Michigan in 1892 and immediately be-
came prominent in business circles.
The Cummer mills soon grew to be
the largest in the state, and his real
estate holdings were perhaps as big
as some of the smaller states. His
name was at once associated with the
building of railroads and the establish-
ment of steamship lines, and he was
one of Florida's largest turpentin-i and
phosphate operators. At the time of
his death he had two thousand men
in his employment.
Jacksonville signally honored him
while living and sincerely mourns his
death.
In paying a tribute to his memory
the Times-Union says:
Although Mr. Cummer's life from
boyhood had been a busy one and
though his large operations have per-
meated nearly all sections of his
adopted country, he has been liberal
and generous in his contributions of
time and money to public affairs and
charitable purposes, never forgetting
that the highest type of citizenship is
that which is mindful of honor, friend,
neighbor and country. Jacksonville
became his legal residence in 1902. his
various interests requiring his person-
al time and attention. Here hbe iden-
tified himself with public affairs and
affliated with charities, and all those
things,which contribute to the welfare
of a community. For many years as
chairman of the rivers and harbors
committee of the board of trade he
rendered valuable service in the im-
provement of the channel of the St.
Johns river.

A MARVELOUS HOLIDAY SLOGAN
-
We interviewed a number of our mer-
chants about the holiday trade, and
without exception the testimony was
that it broke all previous records.
Mr. C. & Tyd4aa smde t-hM -do0
not carry goods exclusively for the
Christmas traite, but that his trade
was good all the week, od on Christ-
mas eve it was more than twice as
much as it was the year before.
The Ocala Bazaar said that all day
long its place looked like a bee hive,
and the sales went way beyond high
water mark. That the trade was sim-
ply marvelous.
Mr. Marcus Frank said that trade
at his place was only measured by the
capacity of the clerks. It was a red-
letter day for him, but he could have
done even better if he had had more
clerks. A great many customers had
to leave without purchasing, as the
clerks had more than they could do.
Mr. Jake Klein tells the same story.
1He says that it was a harvest. It was
his best day in Ocala.
Mr. Weathers, Messrs. Helvenston
& Pasteur, Mr. Rheinauer, Mr. Fishel,
the Globe and Guarantee, all make
the same buoyant statements.
The groc,'ry tr'ad was good ali the
week. It cundenses the story )f pio-
gress andt prosperity. It emphasizes
the fact that those "good times" so
long promised reached us in good
shape. Santa Claus not only made the
little ones happy, but distributed nis
cornucopia of blessings with a lavish
manner and made no exceptions nor
discrimination.

Judge Howard Van Epps, a promi-
nint lawy#,r of Atlanta, dropped dead
in Lake City, Fla., on Christmas eve
night. The distinguished jurist was
('2 years of age. iHe was a member
of t he Atlanta-I omosassa Fishing
Club, and was quite well known in
Ocala.

Mr. J. H. Brinson. superintendent of
public instruction for Marion county,
and Mr. J. H. Workman, principal of
the Octla Hiigh School, left Monday
afternoon for DeLand, to attend the
annual meeting of the State Educa-
tional Association. Mr. Workman
will read a very splendid paper one
day during the session.

Miss Adele Bittinger arrived home
Friday from Lynchburg, Va., where
she attends Randolph-Macon college.
Mrs. Bittinger went up to Jacksonville
to' meet her daughter, who has been
quite sick. Her friends will be d4-
lighted to learn that she is now much
better.

BANNER BRAND ORANGES


Mr. John Carney, of the Carney In-
vestment Company, sent a sample box
of oranges to the editor of this pa-
per, to give a little touch of sweetness
to his Christmas. They were certain-
ly handsome in appearance, and just
as sweet and luscious as their appear-
ance indicated. They were well wrap-
ped and well packed. This tells the
story why the iwices of fruit put up in
this manner always bring top prices
,in the markets. The Carney Invest-
ment Company ships through the
Fruit Exchange

Mr. C. E. Herrick. manager of the
Dixon mill at Crystal River, which
was burned to the ground the day be-
fore Christmas,, estimated the loss to
the company at $250,,t.,i. The loss
of the mill has thrown over one hun-
dred men out of e:nployment, and all
that remains of thi.- huge plant is the
office building, boat house and a small
quantity of cedar logs. Besides tiat-
mill iro)p t h,' ininlense warehouses,
which were full of iwp.:-iantab)le pen-
t.il sto(< k. e cable way which wasx
'onstut tCtd at a cost of $1S.0o00, an
Oi!llniiese .stO( k of squared codar logs,
iwei.ty-five high, covering a space of
n early a quarter of a mile square, rail-
road Itrack'ie and shingle supply, are
all a complete loss.

Mr. Lee Duncan died at his home
east of the city Friday afternoon. His
death is particularly sad, as he had
been married just a little over a
month. His wife was formerly Miss
Carrie Hall. Mr. Duncan was not
quite nineteen years of age, and was
a splendid young man, and was in the
employment of Messrs. Meffert and
Taylor. His young wife has the sym-
pathy of the community in her great
sorrow.

away there was a sigh as though they
awakened from some beautiful dream.
Her accompaniments were entirely in
sympathy with the voices, and those
who were so fortunate as to be pres-
ent to enjoy this musical evening
were very greatly charmed.
The church was decorated as it had
been for the Christmas service, and

gram is replete with merry and breezy
entrees and interludes of all kinds.
Two complete performances will be
offered here, matinee at 2; night at 8

kind ever carried by a tented show.

DEATH OF MR. CUMMER
-
In the death of Mr. Wellington Wil-
son Cummer Jacksonville loses one of
her most prominent citizens and her
foremost philanthropist. It was large-
ly through Mr. Cummer's instrumen.
talities that the magnificent Y. M. C.
A. building was recently erected in
Jacksonville. He took a personal
pride in its erection and his own do-
nation was one hundred thousand dol-
lars. This is the largest amount ever
subscribed to any charitable instit'i-
tion in this state by any single indi-
vidual. It was one of his last public
charities and its completion and use
was one of the greatest joys of MIr.
Cummer's life. With his approbation
and active support Mrs. Summer es-
tablishedl and maintained three free
kindergartens, andi his charities wrv
extended along other lines.
Mr. Cummer came to Florida from
Michigan in 1892 and immediately be
came prominent in business circles.
The Cummer mills soon grew to be
the largest in the state, and his ieal
estate holdings were perhaps as big
as some of the smaller states. His
name was at once associated with the
building of railroads and the establish-
ment of steamship lines, and ne was
one of Florida's largest turpentln* and
phosphate operators. At the time of
his death he had two thousanI men
in his employment.
Ja-.ksonville signally honored him
while living and sincerely mourns h!s
death.
In paying a tribute to his memory


the Times-Union says:
Although Mr. Cummer's life from
boyhood had been a busy one and
though his large operations have per-
meated nearly all sections of his
adopted country,he he as been liberal
and generous in his contributions of
time and money to public affairs and
charitable purposes, never forgetting
that the highest type of citizenship is
that which is mindful of honor, friend.

al time and attention. Here be iden-
tified himself with public affairs and
affiliated with charities, and all those
things,which contribute to the welfare
of a community. For many years as
chairman of the rivers and harbors
committee of the board of trade he
rendered %aluable service in the im-
provement of the channel of the St.
Johns river.
