a case to bring law and order to bear
upon his riotous neighbors even if he
had to sacrifice a few able bodied po

his duty to bring law and order to
bear upon our Mexican neighbors even
if some of our national policemen
must be sacrificed to do so.
The Mexicans have given ample
proof during the past of their abso absolute

properly. It is simply a continuation
of the performance down there of one

other big manufacturing enterprises,
you might have trouble with strikes
sometimes. A few sticks of dynamite
would put your plant out of business
for weeks. .
It is your intention, I believe, to
guard against such a contingency by
taking charge of the city's present
plant and keeping it in 'condition to
start up at a moment's notice. I am
rather dubious that the moment would
be less than an hour rfbr 7 two, and
there are few hours,x. diy or '"night,
Iwhen such a break would hot be very
inconvenient. Also, if you take the
city plant and do riot add to it, and
business increases at its present rate,
if connection broke with your main
plant sometime, say a year or two
from now, the old plaritwould. be ut
terly unable to pull the loadhun loadhundreds
dreds loadhundreds of homes and many streets
would have to be dark, and some
plants would have to 'shut down or
run on reduced time. I iave,no doubt
that you would keep the city plant in
good shape, but unless added to con constantly

to buy the plant outright from the
city, or pay the city a rental for it
that it would pay the city to accept.
So me and my 223 fellow stockhold stockholders

ent present investment that will more than
make up for what you can save us on

More than all that, Mr. Florida
Power Company, public ownership is
a principle; and like every other prin principle
ciple principle is worth paying for. I would
rather pay a dollar or two, or several
dollars, more a year than give up the
city plant. The people of America
are at the parting of the ways. They
must own or be owned. The time for
individualism has passed. The people
must cooperate and help each other
or they will soon be beyond help.
They must learn io manage their big
business or their big" business will
manage them. If the people of Ocala
go forward with their public utilities,
they will meet many backsets, politics
will disturb and graft undermine; but
Here is no royal road to success, and
the only .way the people can learn is
to? go to school. There is no more
reason for them to set aside their
property now than for you or me to

must learn and we must learn, or we
can't keep up with the procession.'

What Tuberculosis Costs.
It has been estimated that deaths
from tuberculosis cost the nation half
a million dollars annually through the
loss of wages and the value of the
things 'workers, would produce if they
were not suffering from the disease.
To conquer this enemy of the human
race more than $20,000,000 a year is
expended. That the good work is pro progressing
gressing progressing is shown hy the fact that in
20 years the death rate from tubercu tuberculosis
losis tuberculosis has been reduced from 245.4 to
158 per 100,000 population.

Benjamin enjoyed himself immensely,
until a late hour when Mr. Tremere
gave him his choice of three ways in
getting back to Ocala. The first was
via the turnpike and the walk route,
which route by pegging for about 4
hours he might possibly beat the train
an hour or so. The x second choice
j was to wait until the 2 o'clock train
1 came through. The third choice was
fer the Hudson Six, and after step-
Pmg m same was landed in Ocala
just 13 minutes after he started.
Here s hoping that he will come
nrain. It is not often that a news-
j paper editor gets this much space.
