"Oh, I'm so glad!" chirped Mrs.
Chumiy, running around the table to j
kiss her husband. "You're such an
old dear, even If you do get a little :
bearish sometimes." r
Chumiy grinned and looked foolish;
he was afraid of his "wife when she j
acted thus. "I hope I can get some-1
thing that will go nicely with your,
gray silk," he said, returning to what
he meant to be the main point.
"But, Fred, my dear," objected Mrs. j
Chumiy firmly, "I simply can't vearl
that gray silk. I can't do it at all j
It's too old and too well known." j
1 "It looks very well," explained j
Chumiy half hopelessly, "and, as I
said before, not one of my people
have ever seen you with It on." ?
"But cousin Susan" began. Mrs. f
Chumiy tragically. v j

"What In the name of common sense
has she got to do with it?"
Why. she was with me when I

picked it out, and she's the one your
cousin Is going to marry."

Chumiy was stricken dumb for an
instant. "I might have known it,"
grumbled. "I'll bet a dollar and a
half you fixed up that wedding just
so you might have a good excuse for
demanding that very dress you asked
for a month ago."
"Fred Chumiy, you know very well
I had nothing to do with those young
people's getting engaged," retorted
Mrs.' Chumiy. "And, anyway, if your
cousin Will proves to be just one-half
as good a husband as some other
members of his family I could men mention,

me all the days of her life."
"Maybe you're right, after all,
agreed Chumiy, looking foolish' again.
"Go ahead and get your dress. But
for heaven's .sake be as light on the
price as you possibly can."
"Oh, It didn't cost much," cooed
Mrs. Chumiy happily, leaning ever to

of the times, the

other trots they had learned to step

all sorts of dance steps she had never
even heard of either on the ice or oil.
She had tried to skate with one or two
of the young men, but when they
found her starting off In the good old old-fashioned
fashioned old-fashioned gliding motion they were
surprised and made apologies and ex excuses,
cuses, excuses, and didnot ask her again.
"Oh, Barbara," cried her. hostess,
stopping In the midst of an intricate
one-step variation, "don't you, skate?"
Barbara forced a laugh. "I have
skated all my m life, but I've never
danced on the Ice," she said.
"I'm sorryso sorry. I never thought
to ask you," young Mrs. Holt said.
"Perhaps Miss Hamilton would be
one of the judges in the competition,"
suggested the 'pleasant-faced' young

man witn Mrs. noit.
"Oh, would you Barbara?" Mrs.
Holt asked, quickly.
"If I could, gladly," Barbara replied.
"George Mason is to be' one," the

young man went on. "May I present

him?" ' :' : s

"I do," he nodded. "Shall we skate

For answer' Barbara turned and
crossed her arms, giving him her right

hand in his risrht under her left arm

and they 'swayed away together.

enough that they were together in thi3
glorious crisp air on so perfect a
night, and neither one seemed to find
it necessary to speak.
They were pounced upon veritably
by Mrs. Holt and her partner when
they skated into the little group near
the bank. ; 4 :
"Where were you?" Mrs. Holt asked.
"We've looked everywhere, George,"
added the' young man, who was still
Mrs. Holt's partner. V
"Too bad," Mason said, "but Miss

"That's not fair," Barbara replied,

After tnat they gave their attention

The trophies were presented at the

We are sorry to chronicle the death
of the dear little son of Mr. and Mrs.
R. M. Long1, which occurred at their
home on the night of December 19th.
This little boy came into the home of
his parents on December 16th, 1914.
He made glad the devoted hearts of
his father, mother and sister for only
three days When the death angel
came ;nnd plucked the beautiful and
cherished flower from the fond hearts

and home and carried it to decorate

he courts of endless bliss. It was a
iny flower faded. For two nights and
l day life and death were struggling

tor tne mastery, finally death won

the victory and the spirit of the little

one returned to the God who gave it-

He left us with the sweet remem-

orance oi a uittie one mucn beloved..;
We shall miss his sweet baby face

many times and he wTili never be for-

gotten by those who stood by him

with tear-stained faces and witnessed

the .flight of his precious spirit. It
wTas not without a glorious thought
as we gazed upon the little form as

it lay so peacefully and quietly in its

flnad bed that no more pain would
ever torture that precious soul and

body .again and though in death we
could well be proud of him for we
knew that he was at rest and in peace
with Jesus. ;

We can only say "God's will be

done," and in doing God's will we will
meet him beyond this vale of tears.

He was a precious rosebud and his

short, sweet life had so entwined it
tendrils around the hearts of those

who knew him that they were hard to
be broken. Though only a little

child he left many sad heart' ta

mourn his long absence.

He was too precious to live here so

the Lord took him to his mansion m

winter, on the battle lines in this
country from 1861 to 1865. For in instance:
stance: instance: Fifty-two years ago yester yesterday,
day, yesterday, December 31st, 1862, wa3 the
first day of the battle of Murfrees Murfrees-boro,
boro, Murfrees-boro, Tenn., and the cold was very
severe. There were a great many
cedar saplings, bushes and small
trees on the battlefielfl, they were
loaded with snow and hanging with
icicles, and .every shot v of a cannon
ball through or among them would
scatter the ice and snow all over the
men. As for shelter and food, there
was neither, except such scraps of
rations as could be found, and which
an Ocala dog would spurn today.
January 1st, fifty-two years ago to today,
day, today, there was a lull in the fighting,
to be resumed, fiercely on the third
day, January 2, 18.G3, fifty-two years
ago tomorrow.-. A number of Marion
county and Ocala men were in this
battle and some of them fell there
during the three days battle.
If tramps ; or people in hard luck j
are seen -around' your home, at once
notify .the police through the; tele
phone office. If the strangers are
simply unfortunate, the- police will
see that they do not suffer and will
try'to help them obtain work. If they
are bad characters they will be dealt
with. ". V
There have been a number of petty
robberies lately, and the police are
criticised. There are less than half a
dozen policemen, and they can't be
everywhere at once. Tramps and
thieves 'keep out of their sight if they
Do all your qan to help the police,

According to the old superstitition,
thirteen is an unlucky number, yet
1914 was a more unlucky, year for the
world than ,1913. In fact, any year
will have to hustle with its ill luck to
keep upwith 1914.
The opening of the year does not
look good 'for Germany, Austria and
Turkey. Germany can gain no ground
in the west, but seems to lose a Httle
every day; In the east, after weeks
of terrific fighting .and terrible
slaughter, Germany has barely held
the Russians in check. The Aiistrians
have done even worse. They have
lost Lemberg, Przemysl is besieged
and the greater part of Galicia is
overrun by the Russians. They have
been driven clear out of Servia, and
their Adriatic ports are blockaded.
Turkey has not been able to do any anything
thing anything more than diver some of the
superabundant Russian troops to the
Caucasus. Germany and Austria are
doing some noble fighting, but they
are losing heavily every day in men
they cannot replace. In the meantime,
the allies grow 1 stronger every day.
They gain ground even when they
stand still, while their opponents
lose even when they go forward.
"Our farmers and others who. have
land to clear should be careful as pos possible
sible possible with the wood," says the Ocala
Star. "They should abandon the
wasteful system, or no system, of
burning brush heaps, and stack even
the little trees and small branches
away for fuel." The farmer and
others living in the suburban sections
are not likely to heed this advice and

yet it is timely and important. As
the Star remarks, fuel is steadily ad advancing
vancing advancing in price in the "country sec section?;
tion?; section?; and in time even the farmer
will have, to buy it. It is just as sense senseless
less senseless to waste fuel, which has a real

value, as to waste corn or meet or
cotton or -fruit. linres-Umcn Short
Messrs. J. M. Mosley and son, E.
L. Mosley, of the Orange 'Lake-Irvine
section, are doing some extensive
planting this season. They will plant
the first very large field "of Irish po potatoes,
tatoes, potatoes, as far as we know, that has
been planted in Marion county, in
some time, if. not since Mr. George
Close did so well with' them eighteen
years ago. The Messrs. Mosley have
250 barrels of seed potatoes en route
from the New England states and
40 tons of fertilizer has been bought
to go on the 65 acres of land that' the
potatoes will plant.
In addition the firm will plant 140
acres of melons, 175 acres of toma tomatoes,
toes, tomatoes, fifteen acres of beans, 60 acres
of corn, 60 acres of oats and 100
acres of velvet beans. Last ,year
like many others they did not make
any money, but the .year before did
well and made good money ; on their
The resolution hour is here and
Walt Mason in the following gives us
thought for, the best resolution we
know: ;
"This truth I'm spreading near and
far, by means of locoed rhyme: You'd
better do without a car than buy a
car on time. Who are the folks that
fume and fret, the while their bos bosoms
oms bosoms bleed? They are the ones who go
in debt for things .they, do not' neecf.
THeir names will -fill a catalogue in
this debt-ridden clime; you'd better
do without a dog than buy a dog on
time. How happy is the man who
knows he does not owe a bone! The
grosser sort of griefs and woes are
leaving him alone; the 'charge it'
course he won't .endorse, or owe a
man a dime; you'd better do without
a horse than buy a horse on time.
The man who always pays is-honored
everywhere, and merchants want his
trade, jand pray that they may have
a share; collectors do not dog his
heels, nor lawyers hunt his door; he
pays for' what he buys with wheels
composed of silver ore. And such a
man enjoys this life, ana finds the
world sublime; you'd better do with-
out a wife than get a wife oh time."
The Ocala. Star is optimistic, and
that is surely not a fault. .Making
predictions- for 1915 it is pleased 'to
prophesy that a number of sawmills
in the Ocala section 'which- have been
closed down for some time, will be
put in full operation within" sixty
days; that turpentine and rosin will
not only advance in price but that
the market will become decidedly
active, within the next two months,
and that some of the phosphate mines
will i resume operations within the
year. The Star is a conservative
newspaper and its predictions are un undoubtedly
doubtedly undoubtedly madeupon authority which
the editor has no cause to question.-Times-Union

town, and her companior for the last

ten years had been her cat.
On a certain afternoon Miss Ruth
Brighton, wishing for a sight of the
country, took a street car for half a
mile "and then walked for the samet dis distance
tance distance to find herself In front of the
Widow Baker'st cottage. Just as she
arrived the old woman ran. out to the
gate and screamed:
"She's dying!" wailed Mrs. Baker,
looking down at an outstretched cat;
"Maybe it's only a fit and we can
cave her. Get a dish of cold water."
The water was brought and thrown
over, the grimalkin, and after a long
minute she opened her ; eyes and re returned
turned returned to the land of the living.
"I am thankful to heaven piously
exclaimed Mrs 3aker, as she rolled
her eyes to the sky. v
That day Osborne Chalmers had de

cided to take a half holiday and a walk
into the country in the afternoon. He
was going to see things that might In Influence
fluence Influence him to buy an 80-acre farm
when he saw a cottage, an old woman,

a girl and a blinking old cat..
"Will you come here?" called tho
Widow Baker.
Ts it anything serious?" he asked,
as he entered the gate.
"My; old cat (has had a fit! What
would you advise me to do?"
"It seems to me the better way
would be to get rid of her." ;
4 "But how am I going to get rid of

"She ought to be carried off and

That was all about .the cat for a
week, as far as tjie two outsiders were
concerned. They both had their walks
and returned to their homes.
' Very few people would permit a
widow's cat to disturb their peace of
mind, but in this case the occasion was
furnished by Providence. It put the
Idea into Miss Ruth's head to take an another
other another country walk and see how the
old cat got along.
"I believe I'll just take a walk out
there," said Mr. Chalmers. "Seems too
bad for that old cat; to die. 1
k Miss Ruth arrived at the cottage.
The cat sat on the" porch. She hadn't
had another fit but she looked as if
she were going to have one at the
first convenient opportunity.
"Yes, she looks bad," agreed Mrs.
Baker, "and am going to ask a great

favor of you. You see, I am lame, and
can't : walk f ar arid t want the old cat
taken away and dropped on the road
somewhere. ; If she is carried a mile
I don't believe she can find her way
back ugain." s

"But how will I carry her?" asked
"I don't know that you'd ever come
back, but. I've thought it all Out. We'll
put herein a paper, flour sack, that .J

have saved. When you get about a
mile away empty her out, say 'ShooL'
and that will be the last of her. She'll

find a home somewhere."

, Mies Ruth agreed to do the errand,
and after a time started back with the
captive. 1 The cat made no great ob objections
jections objections to being sacked' up. It is
possible that she rather longed1 for a
change of environment.
A cat in a flour sack meows and
snarls 'and spits. She claws and' bites
and wails. She wrobbles the sack to

and fro and back, and forth.

Miss Ruth was hurrying along, with

that sacked cat when she saw a young

roan approaching. It was : Osborne

Chalmers.' When he ; saw the wob wobbling
bling wobbling sack held out at arm's length he

suspected its contents and hastened
his steps. He was too late, however
What is to be will be. It was fore

ordained that that cat was to claw ner
way out, and out she came. The feline

could have made a peaceful and hon

orable retreat into the roadside bush

es, but she did nothing of the kind.
She clawed off Miss Ruth's hat and
scratched her face she clawed and
scratched the face of Mr. Chalmers
when he went to the rescue. Then
she inflicted two or three bites, and
weiit her way.
The humanitarians were sadly in
need of repairs,' and they made for
the Widow Baker'.s.
The widow stood on her porch with
a glad smile on her face. So did her
old cat! v 4
"I'm so glad to see you!" exclaimed!
the woman as the clawed and
scratched and bitten couple entered
the gate. 'The. cat has got over her

fits and is playing around as sheused
to when she was a.kitten. Ifmust have
been the fright that did it."
When the wounds of the victims had
been dressed the widow sent them on
their way with:
"I did think the" whole world was
hard-hearted, but this incident has
shown me to the contrary. May a
widow's blessing attend you!"
' Miss Ruth and Mr. Chalm ers walked
away together. V

a question which has to do with wom women,

we should not have time for those

delightful back fence conversations.
If wo pulled the threads and hemmed

have little time to dust. If we wrote

Ancient Family.
Although most of the present-day de descendants

in Bulgaria, the premier family of the

Hungarian nobility the Esterhazys

claim lineal descent frpm Attila; and

thfiV earliest Hungarian records,- to

some extent, bear out their claim.

They show no trace of their ancestry

in r their appearance, for Attila was

physically as well as morally,: one of

the most hideous characters in history,

while, the Esterhazys are a conspicu
ously handsorjo family. The"' biograph

er of Prince Paul Esterhazy attributes
the Improvement in physique to the

fact that for centuries past, owing to

their colossal wealth, the 'Esterhazys

have been able to select the mosj:
beautiful women as their consorts.
Although considerably diminished,
their estates still comprise 21 county
seats, 60 market towns arid 440 vil villages.

Holkham sheep shearings in- England
