RECEIVER TALKS FREELY
WITH THE STAR MAN,
Will Soon Leave Ocala A Dividend
Not Likely to Be Declared

THE NEW RECEIVERSHIP.
The Star reporter repaired to
the First National bank earlv this
morning to interview Mr. McDon McDonald
ald McDonald as to the result of his Wash-
ington trip. When asked if he
accomplished the purpose for
which he took the trip Mr. Mc-
Donald said :
"Yes, I did. The comptroller of
the currency, J. H. Eckles, did not
officially accept my resignation, but
said he would do so. just as soon as
he could appoint rny successor,
which would be about August 1.
There are several applications on
file for the receivership two or
more being from Ocala.
"Mr. Eckles paid me the compli compliment
ment compliment of saying he wanted me to
retain my commission as United
States bank inspector, as there
were occasionally complicated
cases coming up in the south that
he wished to assign to me, as my
success heretofore in winding up
these knotty cases has made
my services appreciated by the
When asked his opinion on the
matter of the bank's declaring a
dividend in the near future, Mr.
McDonald said :
"This is a question that I hardly
like to discuss freely, but I will
say that before my trip to Wash Wash-inert

money in Washington to pay off
that amount, or possibly a little
"It depends a great deal upon j
the depositors when this dividend
will be declared, as Mr. Eckles
told me he would take no action
until virtually all of the claims
were proven. It is astonishing
how slow the depositors are to
come forward with their claims. I
began advertising for them to do
so early in June, and up to date
there are only about 30 per cent of
claims proven. Five hundred is
the number of proofs filed. I think
there are something over fifteen
hundred claims, but Mr. Massey
says there are nearer two thou thousand

"As soon as the bulk: of these
claims are in, Mr. Eckles will give
the people their money, as far as it
will go, and the percentage paid

who would be his successor, but

The temperance editor of the
Ocala Star heads an article in
these woras: "Make Your' Wife
Your Barkeeper," and then goes
on to show how it can be done
profitably, in case a man is deter
mined to drink. As a dernier re
sort even, this plan should not be
adopted. Suppose your wife
should, while measuring out the
exhilarating fluid, from inhaling
the fumes so often, get into the

Storyology in the Sunday School,
Some of the preaching of today

deed. indeed. Or, a fitter illustration
would be, if he could only place
these many little lights together
and constitute one big searchlight,
the subject would be clear enough.
A hundred poor illustrations are
distracting, while a single good
one sheds light. Mr. Beecher, the
i most able preacher of his genera
tion, used many. And when in
the prime of life he said that he
used fifty to where in youth he
used one. But his were all good.
They always cast light. Like the
electric searchlight, the lamp itself
was hidden but the subject was
illuminated. And it is noticeable
to every student of public address
that all the great preachers abound
in happy stories or anecdotes.
Christ began it among the great
teachers of New Testament re re-ligion.

those parables of his hold in solu solution

Though not understood by his dis disciples
ciples disciples as he taught, they are great
mines from which all generations
since then have dug out great
nuggets .of truth. Today they
make clear what would else be
confusion and mystery.
Especially the teacher of chil
dren needs to be a good story
teller. Those oldtime, mysteri mysteriously
ously mysteriously charming words, "Once upon
a time," at once draw tense every
element of attention. Eyes are
riveted; mouths fly open. A fa famous

thousands of photographs of chil children,

that those taken of them while a
story is being told are the best

The world has gotten a strong
hold upon our young men and
women through its stories its
novels some of them good and
safe, but many of them injurious.
Is it not, therefore, high time for
our Sunday school teachers, minis minis-fers,
fers, minis-fers, etc., to learn a lesson from
this? The application of this
principle to the Old Testament
stories in the Sunday school would
create a revolution for good. For
there are no stories so entertaining
as these. And there are no phases
of ethics which are not contained
in them. Our advice, therefore, to
the Sunday school teachers espec especially,
ially, especially, is to deal largely in Old Tes Testament
tament Testament stories for illustration. It
would throng their classes.

man ; I do not assume that lam

I haveabov as dear to me as

that if he is taught at home he will
not go wrong. -That is a lie to be begin

have seen some sons ot some as
good people as ever lived turn out
badly. I Accept my responsibility
as a father. The boy may fall from
the right path as things now exist.
If he does, I bear that sorrow with
such resignation as I may ; but 1

that it has prospered in their ab absence,

sorrows of his disgrace and looking
