others, started for the scene of the

reported, with no sign of a strug strug-gle

It was left till the coroner could
be notified, alter which D. I. Mc
Iver procured a wagon and went
out to the body in company with
Dr. Izlar and Marshal lUrganier.
An examination was then made
and those present came to the con conclusion

slightest doubt of the cause of

seen, and whether he was thrown
from his horse and fell on the
track, or whether he sat down to
recover himself from his fall, and
was unconscious of the approach of
the train, or whether he dismount dismounted

no means of ascertaining. It is

was unable to get out of the way
of the train.
The body was taken to Mclver's
undertaking establishment, where
it was prepared for burial. More
than a hundred people had viewed
the body up to 9 o'clock, when a

southwesterly direction. Deceased

horse threw him the day before

seems strange that a train under

The funeral was held yesterday
afternoon at 5 o'clock, and the
body buried in the new cemetery
east of town.
The dead man was an alderman ;
from the fourth ward and was a j
young man of considerable ability, :
being only about 25 years of age.
He came of a good family, but j
since his father's sudden death, a
few years ago, he has had spells of ;
dissipation and recklessness.
At one time his father and he
together owned a great deal of
property in Ocala.

There is not much suspicion of

By the Ocala Temperance Reform Club.
Cdited by nrs. Kate Liddell and Miss DaLsy
The Club meets every Sunday afternoon at four
o'clock in Temperance Hall. The Public
Saloon-keeper's Temperance Lecture.
Tne temperance people have
had a great deal to say, and we on
this side have kept pretty quiet,
that is. we haven't lectured in pub public
lic public much ; but I think it is time we
tried to do something to gain a
new foothold. We don't know
just what to do, only if talking will
do the work on the temperance
side, why won't it on ours ?
We are generous we can afford
to be. We have money, more than
all the temperance folks put to together;
gether; together; and it's very easy work to
just stand behind a counter and
pour something from a bottle into
a glass, and fill up the money
drawer. To be sure, we sometimes
have to kick a man outdoors, when
he hasn't any money, and doesn't
know enough to go home, and
doesn't have any wife to come
after him ; but that's easy when
you get used to it. Then it's kind
sometimes to give a young fellow
his first glass of liquor, especially
if I know his mother ; but then you
can do this easy when you get used
to it. Then its about the hardest
thing I ever did to take a bundle
from a poor, tattered man, in pay
for drink, and open it, and find a
pair of little baby's shoes, or a lit little
tle little girl's doll or a little boy's sled.
Those things were hard work; but
1 got used to them, and now it's
One thing I know, if I was fight fighting
ing fighting under the temperance flag, I
wouldn't march up to a rebel, and
pat him on the back, just for the
sake of coaxing him to vote for me
next day. And orie thing I
wouldn't do if I was a temperance
minister. If a saloon-keeper
should hand me a $io bill as I was
going by his saloon, I wouldn't
take that bill, and fold it up, and
put it in my pocket, and say,
"Thank you, sir." I don't think
near as much of men that will do
that as I do of men like Elder
Pennyworth. He had a big family
to provide for, and the church
couldn't pay him much- One day
mhen I met him in the street, I
took out a $20 gold piece and of offered
fered offered him. He didn't touch it, but
said, putting his hand on my
shoulder, "My dear friend, I thank
you for your kindness. God knows
how much I need money, but I
wouldn't dare use it. You know
it is written, 'The wages of sin is
death.' I'm afraid to help use such
waes." That's all he said, and
those few words have, given me
more hours of sober thinking than
anything else I ever heard. I tell
you, that minister I respect,
though I s'pose if his prayers
should be answered, I should fail
in business in less than a week, for
want of customers.
