HOW OCALA WILL LOOK
TWENTY-FIVE YEARS HENCE
(Continued from Yesterday)
Well I remembered the country be between
tween between Dunnellon and Ocala, and if I
had gone over it in an aeroplane
twenty-five years before, I would
have seen ten square miles of arid
wilderness to one of cultivation. Over
most of it nothing had ever flourished
but pines and palmettoes, of the first
of" these most had been cut down,
leaving only stumps.
There was a far different scene un unrolled

ed blushed and the stars began to pale. I took
note that the shanties that made up
two-thirds of Dunnellon when I saw
it last were gone and that it was a
handsome town as well as a big one.
It and Rockwell were welded to-:
gether, and along the banks of Blue
Springs run were many fine looking
homes. Juliette at last was good good-looking

princess who was her- namesake.
And now the sun looked over the rim
of the world, and as he shot his flam flaming

far you can see. Things a mile away

Florida had come into her own. In Industry

country to a garden. Field and grove,
orchard and pasture, as far as the
eye could reach. Homes studded the
landscape. Neat villages were fre frequent,

stood up like mountains between us
and the sun.
The once-all-pervading pines were
gone. Here and there in a few places,
generally in pastures, could be seen a
clump of the trees that were univer universal

no lack of foliage. The orange groves

Two things caught my eye at once.
One was that the houses had no chimneys.-
The other was that except
around the pastures there were no
But the chief interest was the city.
I thought of the ancient lie that
some Damascus real estate booster
attributed to Mohammed, saying that
he refused to enter the town, lest he
should want to stay there, and so
lose Paradise. He might have said it
of Ocala and been believed.
I had no conception of a city with without
out without smoke. It was one of the elements
an infallible sign of industry. If I
had stepped across a mountain brow
and seen in the valley a city without
volumes of vapor pouring from its
chimneys, it would have seemed un uncanny;
canny; uncanny; I would have thought it was
But here, as clean and bright, as an
j ocean-washed shell newly cast up by
the tide on the beach, lay a city
smokeless, but very much alive.
A minute we looked down into the
quiet streets, tenanted with only the
scant night traffic. The next minute
they were thronged with people out
to do their work in the best part of
Everything was fresh and cool. The
high buildings of the business center,
untainted with smoke or dust, gleam gleamed

the homes were ringed and set with
trees and gardens and flowers.
The houses were all high, five and
six stories the rule, but there were
wide spaces between, the streets were
wide, the parks and squares were
frequent, trees and flowerbeds border bordered

dens gardens stood beside and behind the
houses. It looked like people had
learned to live.
Everywhere everything looked
fresh and cool and clean as though it
was newly washed by the rain. And
the high cultivation of the country
around bespoke a large and unfailing
supply of water.
Said I to the aviator: "From whence
do you draw all this water. It looks
to me like you would keep Silver

against it, all the same. The water

"One of our big men, John Robert Robertson,

had it done about twelve years ago.

he went ahead and did it. When the

By this time we were over the main

along two boulevards that were once

of reading the Banner at breakfast.
One reason why Monday was always

BOARD OF TRADE
MANY IMPORTANT MATTERS TO
ATTEND TO AT WEDNESDAY
The first meeting for June of the
Board of Trade will be held Wednes Wednesday
day Wednesday evening. There will be two very
important matters to look after. One
is the place Ocala shall take on the
Central Florida section of the Dixie
Highway. The other is making a
fight to hold the section of Marion
county that the Bloxham divisionists
are trying to take from us. By hard
work and good luck, we may retain
it. At any rate, it is to the interest
of every citizen of Ocala to try.
