Itev. J. F. Hollingshead Struck Down
and His Store Set on Fire
An alarm of fire was turned in last
night at 7 o'clock. The Jepartment
made its usual quick response and as
the fire Tvas in aknost the extreme
northeast corner of ithe'eity, it had a
long run. Arriving at the scene the
fire boys found the fire in a small,

Although 'the hose rwas laid from the
nearest hydrant as the -wagon came
by, it was not used and the fire was
extinguished -with the chemical apr

of the building was filled -with smoke
Before 'the fire was out one of the
firemen stumbled rover a body, lying
on the floor behind the counter in
the little 'room used as a general
merchandise store. He called for help
and the 'body ,was taken outside. On
the outside it nvas seen that the man,

house and hurried efforts iwere made
(to revive 'him, a physician ibeing sent
( for in the -meantime. There iwas no
sign of breathing and 'but little pulse,
but after working with him for some
time, he began to breathe. The
(physician arrived and advised iremov-

was ,at the hospital and a hurried
j operation was decided "on, the man's

old man died a litUe after o'clock
jfwhile'the operation was in -progress,'
s never regaining consciousness. The
; -skull was crushed into the brain and
there; -was never any chance for his

A imore thorough examination of

showed ,'plain'ly that the assassin had

was comfortably well off at one time

naught but good to say of anyone

Two suspects have been arrested.
One of them is a man who applied to
Mr. Chandler for work and when of
fered work in the yard, although he
said he was destitute and hungry,
wanted three iprices for doing the
work, so his services were declined.
There are other incriminating cir circumstances
cumstances circumstances against him also.
. The other man is a negro called
night a, short time after the fire. The
evidence against him is strong.
It seems that 'Mrs. -Roberts, who
lives next door east of the little store
saw d tall, 'black negro coming out of
the store door just (before the fire
was seen. .Mrs. t;handier naa seen
such a negro 'around earlier. Mr.
Steven Long, who lives still further
east, saw a tall negro pass his house

alarm Mr. Charles W. Smith, who
lives west of the store, saw "Smokcy"
pass his bouse dressed in a big black
hat and, white shirt 'sleeves. When
"Smokey" was arrested later he 'had
changed .bis clothes, and hat, a very
suspicious' circumstance for. him.
Though there was no signs of blpod
in the room the man occupied.
"Smokey 's" record 4s bad. (More
'than 13 years ago he killed a 'doctor
in Duval county, and left him gagged
in' almost the same way that the
victim of last night was done.' He
served 13 years on a life sentence in

UMATIIiliA WAS -EASY
Home Team Took the Game by
i Score of Five to Two
In the -game with Umatilla yester
day afternoon, the Ocala team won by
five to two, and tho the Umatilla boys
were not hard to beat, they put such
a correct and harmonious game that
it was a pleasure to play, with them.
The Ocala Tin-up was as follows:
Harris, p.; Dinkins, c; Charal, lb.;
Davis, 2b.; Dewey, 3b.; Wilder, ss.;
Burford, If.; Tompson, cf.; Batts.Vf.
A young man named Harris E-ppes
pitched for Umatilla, and did. very
well, (but not so well as the Ocala
pitcher, who is coming stronger every
game. J3oth teams backed up their
pitchers to the extent of their ability,
and the game was very interesting.
Ocala 'has had 'mixed luck during
the season, but is coming in strong
on the home stretch. There will not
be many games more as the half hol holidays
