the earthv nomadic tribes camped over particular sections of it;
homes and trading places were not fixed; land was too plentiful for

AND IMPROVEMENT

The trimming of the shade trees
along the 'streets of the city is a gpod
move and as far as we have seen,
Street Superintendent Marsh is doing
the work with some care and system,
sawing off the limbs carefully and
painting the stumps to keep decay
from setting in. The streets look
better, the electric lights at night will
now throw their light from one cor corner
ner corner to another, the light, wind and
air can circulate and the city will be
better for the work. Shade is one of
the finest things in this climate, but
it can be overdone and the growth
become too luxurious, and an annual
trimming of" the trees is really a necessity.

old year was spent reverently in the;

house of God, while our pastor, Rev.
W. T. Evans, read and expounded a
portion of God's word, and, as the

One item in this report should be
well weighed and pondered over and
that is that representing salaries

ments. disbursements. Had this gone out of our city
it would have put a different phase orf

the matter.

I wish especially to call attention to

the express rate .hearing transferred

from Washington to Ocala, which has

given our city mdre prominence

throughout the country than any
meeting or gathering ever held in our
city. :

Again the long and short haul hear

ings brought us clearly before all sections.

Too much stress cannot be given)

the work of issuing the express and

freight rates, under the direction of
the governors which meant so much

to the shippers and producers as this
information was accurately compiled

and supplied to all sections of our
county. Couple this with the hun hundreds
dreds hundreds of letters written, questions an

swered, information supplied, import important
ant important subjects handled, results secured,

that each individual action meant just

that much thought, time and effort

and cooperation to secure.

If the city and county would 'care

fully study and enter into the life
and activities of this organization
and realize the untiring efforts of Ihe

officers and governors in carefully go

ing into and reasoning out the many
questions, projects and plans that
come before them, tronservatively

guarding the welfare of each, I don't
believe any thoughtful man would re

main away from its meetings but all
would be active in its deliberations.

In bidding the old year of hard

work and earnest effort gooy-bye, we

welcome the new with a stronger de

termination to build up on the

strengtn and failures oi tne past, a

stronger structure and with indomi
table energy and purpose pressfor

ward and onward, not faltering or

wavering until success is achieved

and the reward secured Ocala given

lower freight rates, made an indus

trial center, backed by the best agri

cultural conditions in the state.
In conclusion permit me to advo advocate
cate advocate a change in the city charter so
our council can make a tax levy to
cooperate with the Board of Trade in
its work. Secure an immediate ap appropriation
propriation appropriation from the county commis commissioners
sioners commissioners to provide finances for the

This is the way St. Petersburg and

Let Ocala "not only follow their lead
but get in the forefront, set a pace

and not stop until we have a fine au auditorium,
ditorium, auditorium, a permanent Chautauqua, a
large lot or location or several in our
