THE: aHIIIE ROUTE
Appropriate Name of the Highway

(S.t Petersburg Independent)

the new name suggested for the high highway
way highway to lead from Ocala to St. Peters Petersburg
burg Petersburg and then to Tampa and Lakeland
and hope that it will be finally adopt adopted
ed adopted as the name. The following story
sent from Lakeland to the Tampa
Times shows how the new name, "The
Sunshine Route," has caught on at
once.
Lakeland, Fla., Sept. 10. Is Para Paradise
dise Paradise Loop "too hif alutin as the name
of a road?
Editor Straub of the St. Petersburg
Times declares is it.
Prompt to rap what does not please
him, he has been carrying on a voting
contest for a better name and at the
meeting of the executive committee of
the Central Florida Highway associa association
tion association yesterday afternoon submitted
the three leading names. They are:
1. Piney Woods Trail.
2. Sunset Curve.
1. Sunset Route.
Immediately on hearing the names
the executive committee began to
carp.
"Oh, you Sunshine City," said
Dickie.
"While Piney Woods Trail was the
first choice of the committee," said
Editor 13traub, "I must admit that the
choice was not very popular. Many
thought it savored a bit too much of
the back woods."
Ed Bryan suggested that a combi
nation of the second and third names
should be taken, making it read
"Sunshine Route." This seemed to
strike all favorably, but as the com committee
mittee committee is not empowered to make the
change it was left up to the Gaines Gainesville

Straub paid $10 for the first name,
but he did not seem to think he had
his money's worth. Nor did the exec executive

What do readers of the Times think
of the matter?
Which is better? Paradise Loop,

SEYMOUR'S PROPOSITION
TO THE CITY
Yes, it is true I offered to donate to
the city a location in North Ocala for
our combined water and electric plant.
The lot is 3S5 feet by 140 feet, situ
ated between the S. A. L. and A. C.
L. railways with side track into the
property that cost me more than
$1200 to put down. This lot is from
80 to 100 feet above sea level and is
underlayed with sand and red clay
for the first 25 feet. The next 40 to
CO feet is hard sand rock. When the
rock is drilled through, the water ris rises
es rises to within 15 to 20 feet of the top
of the ground. While I have never
had this water analyzed it appears
to be pure and soft. I have lived in
Florida for 30 years and daring this
time I have learned a few things about
the county. One is that the best place
to get pure soft water is In the pine
woods sand hills. In this immediate
neighborhood I have had more than a
dozen open wells put down to water
level, and invariably find the water
flows from north or northwest toward
the southeast. This would indicate
that there is no danger here from
sewerage wells uptown.
In making this proposition to the
city council I am accused of throwing
a bomb into that honorable body. I
am sure I had no idea of doing such
a thing, especially so since they are
all my friends, so far as I know. Right
here I wish to say, there is not a
man in Ocala that I have a higher
regard for than the chairman of that
body. I have known him for 25 years
and at one time was associated with
him in business, and in all these
years I have never known him to plan
an underminding or dishonorable
scheme. And while insisting on
building this plant at the old loca location
tion location I am perfectly confident that J.
M. Meffert is doing what he believes
to be for the best interest of the
town. Still I fear he does not realize
the full import of what softer and
better water would mean to Ocala.
Another thing I wish to say is that
if the city of Ocala would not be bene benefitted
fitted benefitted by the location that I have of offered,
fered, offered, then I most assuredly would
not want them to accept it. What I
want is better water, more water, and
cheaper water, and it does n.it matter

OCA LA'S WATER PROBLEM
most important factor in the upbuild upbuilding
ing upbuilding of any town, or city, is its water
supply. Especially is this true in
Florida, where the water generally is
not considered the best. Anyone who
has lived in Ocala for twenty years,
as I have, knows perfectly well we
have had our share of trouble alonj
this line.
The most difficult problem I have
had to combat, in my efforts to boost
Ocala in the last few years, has been
its present water supply. Not that tie
water is bad, but on account of the
articles published in the past, in the
papers and even in pamphlets knock knocking
ing knocking Oca la's water, so much so that
every town in the state, from Pensaco Pensaco-La
La Pensaco-La to Miami, that wishes to knock
Ocala produces one of these articles
and gives her a knock. Consequently
it will pay Ocala to get a different
water supply, even if the water should
be no better.
Therefore I think the act of the city
council making an appropriation to
put down test wells is a very com commendable
mendable commendable one. If we can get softer
and better water for Ocala, it will be
the biggest boost we have had in a
number of years. I think the city
council will make a mistake, however,
if they fail to put down test wells at
more than one point, and especially
when that point is the most unlikely
spot in the city to find good water.
The best authorities on the subject
all agree that water is liable to be become
come become contaminated from the surface.
If this be true, and it is no no doubt,
it stands to reason that the more sur surface

point the more the water is liable to
become affected at that point. I dart

It is likely that an attempt will be
made when the next legislature meets
to have the law against newspapers
exchanging space for transportation
repealed. It will be very much to the
disadvantage of the railroads, the
newspapers and the people to revive
the old pass system. A newspaper
which can obtain passes for all the
members of its staff and their fam families
ilies families for a greatly disproportionate
quantity of advertising space is going
to be mighty tender about criticising
he railroads whenever they impose on
the people. And such a policy would
crowd the railroad cars with dead deadheads,

twenty years ago, when 'some news newspaper

some little railroad official couldn't

very well.

President Wilson, all things con considered,

and it is difficult to understand how

the tremendous weight of anxiety
and responsibility he taken to bed

with him every night. A mighty na

tion is poised on the perilous edge of
the abyss of war, and one small flaw

in the fine mechanism of Woodrow
Wilson's intellect, one slip in a cog,
one false move in the greatest and

most dangerous and difficult game of

diplomacy ever played by this govern

ment with another, and the country
may go over the edge and crash down
amid the other nations wallowing and
weltering in the bloody horrors of
wholesale human butchery. Every
praying man and woman in America
should beseech the Almighty to guide
and strengthen the lonely and devoted
man at the head of the republic to the
end that he may bring his country
with honor and safety through the
perils that threaten it from a world
gone mad. Lakeland Telegram.
Very true, Uncle Joe. Also, the
American people should remember
that if President Wilson hasn't been
as stiff in demanding their rights, or
in backing up protests as most of
them would like, it has been their
fault, not his. They have given him
practically nothing but "moral effect''
to work with. He has done mighty
well with the materials at his hands.

It being extensively reported around

of a true Christian character. Frank
was loved by all who knew him. In
fact to know him was to love him.
We can't understand why so promis promising
ing promising a young man and one whose life
was so helpful should be called away
in the bloom of life. But we do know
that our Heavenly Father makes no
mistakes and that he does all things
for the best and that all things work
together for good to those that love

the Lord. Frank's whole life was

full of sunshine and happiness and
expecially the last few months and
the last few days of his life. He said

he had loved his Savior for a number
of years but loved him better now
than ever. He told his precious young

wife just a few days before the end

came that he loved her dearly but he
loved Jesus better. Jesus, the great
teacher, said I go to prepare a place
for you and if I go and prepare a

place for you I will come again and
receive you unto myself; that where
I am there ye may be also.
Frank leaves to mourn his death a
father and mother, Mr. and Mrs.
Walter Luffman of Sparr, and two
brothers, E. W. and C. H. Luffman,
besides other relatives and a multi multitude
tude multitude of friends. The funeral services
were held at the Methodist church at
Sparr Friday at 1 p. m. The service
was conducted by the pastor, Rev.
Outland, assisted by the Baptist pas pastor,

The remains were interred in the An Anthony

May the Lord heal the broken
hearts of the distressed relatives and
help them to say thy will be done.
The Lord gave and the Lord hath
taken away, blessed be the name of
the Lord. Though Frank has been
called away may they realize that
the great shepherd leadeth and it is
well. May they realize that the Lord
is our refuge and strength.
There is a vacant place in the little
Sunday school,
Where once he kept the golden rule
And where he tried from day to day
To do his best while on life's way.
In the great and glorious Sabbath
school rank,
The place once filled by him is blank;
A vacancy is made in the old church
aisle,
Where once he walked and sweetly
smiled.
He has left this world of toil and
care
To live with the angels pure and fair,
And rally around the Father's throne
With other loved ones who have gone.
The numberless friends that here he
had
Are left behind, grief stricken and
sad.
Though our loss is mingled with pain,
Yet it is his eternal gain.
We miss his sunny, smiling face,
His manly walk so full of grace,
But happy thought to us is given
That he is now at rest in heaven.
May his loved ones left behind
Sweet peace and comfort ever find,
In that one and glorious thought
That Frank with Jesus' blood was
bought.
And now may each and every one
Prepare to go where he has gone,
To that blessed home that's built
above.
Where all is purity, peace and love.
May we walk the way that's narrow
and straight,
And meet Frank at the pearly gate
In that bright city that's made of
gold,
Whose riches and happiness are un untold.

The Actor's Meeting With Gladstone
Outside the Theater.
John II a re. the eminent English actor-manager,
said that the most de delightful
lightful delightful compliment he ever received
was from Mr. Gladstone. It was a dou double
ble double ended compliment. .Whichever way
you took It It was satisfactory.
Mr. Hare earned fame playing old
men's parts, his character as Mr. Gold Gold-by
by Gold-by In "A Pair of Spectacles" being a
good example. Added to this was a
horror of having his picture taken.
Mr. Gladstone had never seen a pic picture
ture picture of the actor, but he knew him
well behind the scenes as well ns be before
fore before the footlights. The premier's fa favorite
vorite favorite play was "A Pair of Siectac!es.
and he always went Iiehlnd the scenes
to chat awhile with the actor. The
really :d man nud the made up old
man would sit there and talk In the
uust ddightrul way for an hour after
the show.
One day the Earl of l!oebery had
Mr. Gladstoue t dinner, and he also
Invited his friend John Hare. The ac actor
tor actor came in smooth shaved, looking
about thirty-live. He was presented to
Mr. Gladstone, and the prime minis minister
ter minister shook his hand most cordially and
said:
"My dear sir, I am very, very glad
to meet you. I know your father very,
very welL Splendid actor! Fine old
man!"
It took the whole evening for the
earl and Mr. Hare to convince blin
that this son was really the father.

the city limits of Ocala runs directly

I know it is cited that Jacksonville

mation formation of the earth in and under that
city is as different to that of Ocala as
day Ls from night. There it is only
a few feet down to the water level
and drainage is on top of the ground.
In Ocala our water level is from 40
to 80 feet and our drainage is

through the earth rather than on top
of it. Besides in Jacksonville it is

only a few feet to the quick sand,
which shuts off the surface water com

pletely. Here we go down from 40
to 80 feet through lime rock that is

full of holes and crevices, which readi

ly admits the surface water. In fact,

I can show anyone several places
near here where the water pours down

into the earth for 40 or CO feet like
pouring over a mill dam.
