wit: to-wit: Messrs. Sistrunk, Carney, Math Mathews
ews Mathews and Brooks, met yesterday in
this city to again take up the matter
of the Ocala packing house. Mr. J.
H. Mathews explained that his duties
at Candler were such that he would
have to resign from the committee.
His resignation was accepted and Mr.
J. M. Thomas, vice president of the
Munroe & Chambliss National Bank,
and one of the owners of the Fairy
Island grove in Sumter county, was
elected in his place.
Having gone thoroughly into the
matter of a building and receiving a
most liberal proposition from Mr. J.
H. Taylor, who owns a large ware
house admirably situated at the
crossing of the A. C. L. and S. A. L.
railroads, it was decided to use this
building for the first season, at least.
In the matter of machinery, com
petitive bids were asked for from the
several manufacturers of citrus siz sizing,
ing, sizing, washing and packing machinery,
same to be guaranteed as to delivery
and installation in ample time for
this season's 'crop.
The field boxes, ladders, etc., which
the association has to furnish to the
growers can all be made here and
be ready in time.
As to the financial arrangements,
this important part jean be handled
by the aid of the banks of the city,
the citrus exchange and with the
support of the individual growers and
members of the association.

SOUTH HATERS ARE SHOUTING
' Some of the people around here,
who think that the Star has been
fussing at Georgia on account of the
Frank case, should read the Tampa
Tribune, the proprietor and founder
of which is frdm Kentucky, a state
which as all men know is specially
noted for rigjd obedience to and
staunch' upholding of the -law. Says
"Twenty-five unknown men, acting
in -defiance of law, have, by one
night s brutal work, aroused the
South-haters from one end of the
land to the other. For months, the
Southern people and the Southern
press will be forced to read all man
ner of malicious misrepresentation.
because these twenty-five men gave
way to their passions and elected
themselves to put to death a convict
ed prisoner, whose life had been
spared by constituted authority. If
the condemnation which is being vis
ited upon us in connection with this
crime could be limited to the actua
criminals and, perhaps, to the Geor
gia authorities who failed to take
proper precautions to prevent the
outrage, it would not be so bad; but
the tribe of South-haters recognize
no such just and rightful localization
of guilt. They must needs include
the entire. South in their denuncia
tions, ascribing the lawless motives
which actuated the Marietta mob to
all the people of the south and hold
ing Florida and Virginia and Tennes
see equally culpable with Georgia.
If Great Britain had put cotton on

WOOD3IE.-M OF THE WORLD
Those fellows up in Marietta who
don't know any-of the Frank lynch
ers are like the hero and shero in the
melodrama who can't see the villain
when more than half of him is stick
ing out from the tree they are both
looking at. They know he is there,
but they ain't hired to see him.
The lynching of Frank gives the
Chicago Tribune an opening for a
lot of remarks -about Georgia and the
South in general. If the Tribune
would turn i$s exclusive attention to
the vice in some wards in Chicago, it
would be kept so busy it would have
no time to go out of the city limits.
If the Chicago Tribune represents
Chicago, and it must because it is
Chicago's leading newspaper, then
let the entire South boycott Chicago
jobbers and manufacturers. Clear
Let's not. There are plenty of good
people in Chicago, and the good peo
pie of Chicago and the good people
of the JSouth can't be kept apart in
sentiment and interest by the blather
skites or ruffians of either section.

Thought for the Day
The art of forgetting is a blessed
art, and the art of overlooking is
quite as important. If we should
take time to write down some of our
original sins, along with progress and
a few of our troubles, we would be become
come become ashamed of the fuss we make
over them, and hurry them on to
eternal forgetfulness. Life is too
short to be worn out in petty worries,
frettings, hates and vexations. They
accomplish no good. Our line of
duty will never be stretched out be beyond
yond beyond the measure of our strength.
Let us live with the grace of the
flowers, with the joy of the birds and
the freedom of the winds and waves.

Miss Irma Blake, when she enter entertained

decorated with vases of flowers plac placed

fans added a luxuriousness befitting
a mid-summer evening. The splendid splendidly

group of Tschaikowsky, Schumann
and Hans de Bulow which won imme immediate

throughout the entire program. Miss
Blake, who is a graduate from the
State College at Tallahassee, in both
piano and voice, won public recogni recognition

were begun, her brilliant mind and

fThe .Tschaikowsky Roscantella inter
pretations were to her of greatest
ease, also the Carreno waltzes in their
delicate rythmic swings and the two
McDowell numbers were executed
with wonderful interpretation of the
moods. The Rubinstein Etude was a
masterful climax. In voice Miss Blake
showed her splendid training. Altho
it is in piano music that this brilliant
artist excels, her singing was equally
beautiful and enjoyable. She pos possesses

by Hahn was met with particularly
fine effect. Also Miss Blake was at

with great dramatic interpretation.
In response to the last ovation, Miss
Blake gave an exquisitely sweet -original
production that bespeaks" in it itself

most gifted young lady. Miss Mamie
Gross, who is another of our city's
