A WEEK AT ST. MARTINS.
A Place Where Any One Can
Have a Good Time.
Last Tuesday we, in company
! with our better half and little son,
left Ocala for a week's visit with
Capt. E F. Wheeler and family at
'heir comfortable home on the
breezy banks of St. Martin's river.
The captain came up to this city
and escorted us to the burg of Ho Homosassa,

met by his two sons, DuPree and

over the glossy surface in the di-
rection of the captain's home.
After passing down the different
channels for about four or five
miles we were landed at the dock,
at which place we were met by Mrs.
Wheeler, who, we wish to say, is
one of the most pleasant ladies it
has ever been our pleasure to
meet, and were led to the house,
and after a little while seated
around a well-ladened table, at
which time the huqgry newspaper
man showed his ability in devour devouring

o'clock at night. Supper over and
