to Mr. H. B. Plant at
the Ocala House, and moved that
a committee of eight, including
the chairman and secretary, be ap

concurred in by every one present.
The Board of Trade includes
over fifty of Qcala's most enter
prising citizens, who are wide
awake to the material growth and
development of our city. There is
only one way to build a city and
that is for all to pull together. In
union there is strength. United
we stand, divided we fall. Let
every business man now in Ocala
join the Board of Trade at once
and it will add anew impetus to all
branches of business.

the long-suffering patience of
Christendom to find vent in the
demand that the Turk should not

can see the falsity of such a plea.
To aim at good government and

we expect perfection. Not to
have a decent aim is to permit
