Capt. G. M. Wells, the most suit

in behalf of the committee, has
called a meeting of citizens in the
Ocala House tomorrow evening
at 7:30 to discuss the advisability
and suggest plans and methods of
establishing a fertilizer factory and
other practical and much needed
enterprises in Ocala and vicinity.
It is 06 vital importance to every
man l;avin.j the welfare of Ocala

not as a figure-head, to sit and say
nothing, but do something, get en

before the peoplegood, solid
business plans, both practical and
within the reach of our people.

GOING TO HAVE THEM
FOR LOVZ'S SAKE.
Sometimes I am temj ted to murmur
That life is flitting away,
With only a round of trifles
Filling each busy day;
Dusting nooks and corners,
Making the house look fair,
And patiently taking on me
The burden of woman's care.
Comforting childish sorrows,
And charming the childish heart
With the simp e song and story,
Told with a mothers art;
Setting the dear home table
And clearing the meal away,
And going on little errands
In the twilight of the day.
One day is just like another,
Sewing and piecing well
Little jackets and trousers
So neatly that none can tell
"Where are the seams and joinings
A hi the ieimy side of life
Is kept out of sight by the magic
Of many a mother and wife?
And oft when I'm rexdy to murmur
That life is flitting away,
With the selfsame round of duties
Filling each busy day,
It comes to my spirit sweetly,
With the grace of a thought divine:
You are living, toiling for love's sake.
And the loving should never repine.
'You are guiding the little footsteps
In the way they ought to walk;
You are dropping a word for Jesus
In the midst of your household talk;
Living vour life for love's sake
Till the homely cares arrow sweet
And sacred the self-denial
That is laid at the Master's feet."

.jThe Best Reason Why.
God's "reasons" are beyond the
understanding of men's minds,
but God's love is always a reason
to the trusting.human heart. Men
do not often think of questioning
the wisdom or the goodness or
the justice of the Providence which,
comes to them with a smiling face,
and manifests himself in clear
skies, fertile lands, large incomes,
sound health and perennial light lightheadedness
headedness lightheadedness and cheer. But when
the skies are lowering, when plenty
gives place to want, when disease
and pain enfeeble and rack the
body, when profound sorrow in invades
vades invades the heart, then men begin
to wonder why these things are
not only permitted but ordered.
The Christian in bereavement con concedes,
cedes, concedes, perhaps, that all is well and
that all is right, but yet he feels
the temptation to wonder just why
such trials must be. No one can
tell him infallibly why, but neither
can anyone more reasonably or
surely tell him why his next door
neighbor has escaped the fiery
trial. The mystery of life is one
which, if it raises questions at all,
should raise them equally on all
providential orderings, pleasant or
painful, in prosperity or adversity.
One who feels himself especially
afflicted has at least acknowledge
that God has not turned him adrift
but has seen somepeculiar need in
him ana is doing just what, is best
and wisest to minister to that
need. Sunday School Times.
