TOM SAWYER TALKS.
A Man Who Has Ocaia's Inter Interests
ests Interests at Heart.
The following is a part of a
communication, the remainder ot
which will appear in tomorrow's
issue. We commend it to the
many friends and admirers of Tom
Sawyer in Ocala. Ed.
The very modest suggestion
that Tom Sawyer write an article
for your columns is my excuse this
time, and I feel entirely free to
talk to the people who have been
so kind to me in the past.
I feel about Ocala as
cutter did about Kentucky.

to the chisel-pusher for a monu monument

"Gone to a better land."
The marble-cutter studied a mo moment

When the widow, in great aston astonishment,
ishment, astonishment, demanded his reason for
"Why, madam," he answered, "I
have strained my conscience many
a time in this business, but I won't
tell a positive lie for anybody. You
want me to say, 'Gone to a better
land,' when there ain't no better
land than Kentucky."
The disasters which one after an
other have fallen so heavily upon
the people of the central peninsula
are well calculated to discourage
the most hopeful, but I have never
known finer exhibitions of courage
and that determination to turn ca calamity
lamity calamity into fortune.
The man who stops to bewail the
loss of his orange grove is to be
pitied and he ought to be reason reasoned
ed reasoned with.
Nothing but evil was ever ac accomplished
complished accomplished by giving" up in the
presence of misfortune.
We are infinitely better off than
our fathers were in 1865, yet they
wrung victory from deteat.
We are better off today than
two-thirds of the human race.
We have our homes verytfew
of them mortgaged land we have
all the individual liberty necessary
We are all pretty near having
an even start now, only the man
who has strength and youth is
more to be congratulated than we
who are older however, we had
both strength and youth once, nor
will Tom Sawyer, nor his philo philosophic
sophic philosophic friend. Major Campbell,
envy the boys whose day has not
yet passed ten o'clock.
I am glad to learn that the brave
citizens of Ocala are arousod to the
importance of diversifying the
business interests of that town.
It is well.
Hearty co-operation of all your
people will do wonders.
Public meetings and resolutions
are stimulating, but action alone
will bring about results.
Your rich men must consider
themselves public stewards, and no
words of wisdom from your elo
quent mayor will avail anything
unless all the people open, their
pock;ets and bring their financial
energies to bear upon some com common
mon common business enterprise.
