GOOD ADVICE TO GROWERS
Counsel from Light Regarding the
Cabbage and Onion Crops
Editor Star: Being very much in interested

ing farming and trucking interests of this
state, and being better situated to
glean facts connected with these in industries
dustries industries than I have been, and if the
newspapers of the state wil co cooperate
operate cooperate in the publishing- of the sev-
Leral articles I will get up, I will de
vote my very best efforts and much
time in the preparation on subjects
which the agriculturists are deeply
interested. m
Every one of our truckers wants to
know "what shall I plant, which of
the crops will pay?" and my efforts
will be along this line of gathering all
the information I can connected with
present supply, prospective supply of
such vegetable and farm crops that
will be in demand from the state.
Lately this question has been put
to me, "Will it pay to plant cabbage
this fall?"
My reply was as follows: The last
government report on the cabbage and
onion crops was something like the
following:
The planted area north is 25 per
cent larger than last year. The pros prospects
pects prospects for yield is 25 per cent larger.
Barring disaster the cabbage crop
will be 50 per cent more than last
year and in all probability a corres corresponding
ponding corresponding large lot put in cold storage
which will come in competition with
our own cabbage shipments. Cabbage
sold well last season, and I have read
that certain parts of Texas and other
places were thinking of planting heav heavily.

Louisiana and Mississippi plant a
very large cabbage crop, coming in
in March and April and a large stor storage

the crop would be a loss to the plant planter.

little money on seed and seed beds
and plant same at proper time, for
perhaps the cold storage of cabbage
in the north may be but normal, the
planting in the south but normal, and
with but a normal planting in the
south, a normal cold storage in the
north, a paying cabbage crop would
be the result, barring no serious dis disaster.

I will put out. As to the onions, they
are short about 60 per cent of a nor normal

Texas was big last year; it paid but
little. I like to plant the crop that
paid but little last year. Usually two
paying crops of vegetables do not fol follow

the same crop.
I will know more about cabbage
and onions later. Yours truly,

The Ocala Star thinks a railroad

commissioner' should refuse to ride in

a car- owned by a railroad official. Is

it possible that we have elected com

missioners who can be bribed or even

prejudiced by such a little favor?

Times-Union.

Well, what do you think about it?

If the editor of the Times-Union will

look back over his files for a few

years, he will find some sharp crit

icisms of a president of the United

States for riding free on a train fur furnished
nished furnished by a railway corporation.
What is improper in a republican

can't be proper in a democrat; what is

wrong for a federal official can't be

right for a state official. During his
campaign for election, no railway
commissioner would have been seen
on the private car of a railway official,
and so it is, to say the least, incon inconsistent
sistent inconsistent for him to be seen in one now
that he is safely in office.

It is an indisputed fact that there
is, in Northwest Marion, a larger
proportion than usual of colored vot

ers. Nearly all the colored people
out that way are farmers, most of
them tenants, but not a few owning
their own places. Nearly all of them
have always lived there, and they are

more industrious and prosperous than
the average. They take considerable

pride in their schools, "pay their poll
taxes better and consequently have
more votes than is usual among col colored
ored colored people in a southern state.
Nevertheless, they have a majority of
the vote in only one precinct Blitch Blitchton
ton Blitchton and in the six precincts they
have only 240 to 206. Senator Blitch
says they have 85 per cent. Either
Senator Blitch was making an inten intentional
tional intentional misstatement, hoping to get
away with it, or he is mighty poorly
posted on the statistics of the county
he was trying to create and aspired
to represent in the state senate.
Going over in Levy, we find the
largest negro vote in Raleigh, where
they have 41 votes out of 90. As
there were only two cast against
division in that precinct, it is absolute absolutely
ly absolutely necessary that 27 negroes voted
for division. Laurence Shipton, a ne negro
gro negro politician of Raleigh, was a zeal zealous
ous zealous and paid worker for Bloxham.
In Williston, there is also a large

proportion of colored voters. It may

be that every vote cast against divis

ion in that precinct was cast by a ne

gro, but it is doubtful.
Montbrook, Senator Blitch's home

precinct, which voted 43 against

division to 17 for it, has only 17 col
ored, votes to 52 white.

Morriston, which voted 57 against

division to 16 for it, has 11 negro

voters to 87 white. Lebanon, which

went heavily against division, has

not a colored vote in it.

Marion county men did not do any anything
thing anything irregular or disreputable to ob obtain
tain obtain negro votes. They went to the

colored people with the same argu

ment that they took to the white peo

pie that it was best for them to stay
in their own county that they could

have better government, better

schools and better roads with lower

taxes. The Bloxham advocates made
the negroes false promises and tried

to excite their prejudice. They told
them about the grandfather clause
law, when every white man in the

county knows that the supreme court
of the United States killed that law

as dead as a" door nail three months

ago. They bribed some of them

they bought one negro preacher body,
soul and breeches and tried to bribe

others. Senator Blitch himself re

peatedly addressed the negroes, and
argued, pleaded and begged that they
should vote for Bloxham. And now

that the negroes had better sense than

to be taken in by his promises, he
turns around oh them and abuses
them, and threatens to put them out

During the county division cam campaign,
paign, campaign, Gus Morton made a bet with
Mr. J. R. Moorhead, the Marion coun county
ty county road engineer, that work on the
Blitchton road would stop the day
after election. The work is going on
vigorously, the road has been worked
to within half a mile of Blitchton,
and Jim says he wishes Gils would
come across with his bet. This work
will be completed to the Levy line,

and then, its the Star's advice, that

the county commissioners improve an

other, road from either Berlin or
Blitchton to Central and the Alachua
line. ; National highways and Dixie
highways are very good, but our own

people first.

The Williston Courier states that

the creation of Bloxham county was
defeated by only seven votes. Clear

water Sun.

The Courier was about as accurate

in that as it has been in other state statements.
ments. statements. The vote was 423 for .Blox

ham and 473 against it. Outside of

Williston precinct the vote was 213

for Bloxham and 450 against. As

the vote was on a referendum of three

fifths, it would have taken 538 votes

out of the 896 cast .to create, the new
county. So far as the Star knows,
the Courier didn't tell the truth once
during the campaign, so it was per

fectly appropriate for it to lie utterly
and entirely about the result. We
have not seen a copy of the sheet

since the election, but had supposed
it was so dirty it had been excluded

from the mails.

We print elsewhere a communica

tion from Mr. B. H. Seymour regard regarding
ing regarding the site for the water works.
Much of what Mr. Seymour says is
true, but he makes some mistakes.

One is that if anybody will dig up

files of the Star and Banner, they will

find enough in them to condemn the
city water for all time. The Star has

never condemned the city water. On

the other hand, it has always main

tamed that it was good water, as

good as any in the state, and so said,
years ago, before the, city owned the
works. The Star is informed by one
of our city physicians, who has been
here for years, that he has never had
to treat any case of sickness caused

by city water. The Star favors keep

ing the waterworks in their present
location because of the delay and ex expense
pense expense of putting them elsewhere. It

knows that there is no general opposi

tion to their remaining where they
are.' Comparatively few people ob object,
ject, object, and their objection is being work worked
ed worked for all it is worth by those who
are interested in having the entire
work delayed. Speaking of insurance,

if the works are not soon replaced

with new ones, the old, worn-out en

gines will break down and then we

will not only have no insurance at all

but a water famine. This would not
worry a few rich folks, but it would
be hell on 99 per cent of the people

of the town. When the sewerage sys

tem now under way is put in working
order, the danger Mr. Seymour

speaks of, from sewerage wells, vril

be removed. It is a danger, which
if the arguments of the Taylor pond

Editor Star: I consider the loca location
tion location of the water and light plant the

most vital question that Ocala has
had to consider for a long time, hence
my interest in the matter.

Before I enter into this matter I

wish to say I consider Mr. Meffert

perfectly honest in all his conten contentions
tions contentions in regard to this location. I
took the matter up with him first and
he told me he was afraid I was too

late, as they had already agreed to
put the water works on the old site,
and had contracted for another well
to be put down there. They had their

blue prints made with an eye to this

location and if I had taken the mat matter
ter matter up with him sooner, he would
have gladly considered putting the
plant on the north side of town. I

was surprised at this, as I had decid

ed, after thinking the proposition

over, the old site was so unfit for the

new water works the city council

would be looking for a new location,

knowing how Ocala has suffered on

account of the reputation of its water,

and knowing the city council was fa familiar
miliar familiar with these facts, I felt sure
they would try to do something to
better conditions. Consequently, I
have been waiting and watching for
an opportunity to take this matter up
with them.
Mr. Mr. Meffert says the city will
iose $5,000 by moving the plant. In
my humble opinion, Ocala would
make several times $5,000 in the long
run by putting this plant in a better
location. Of course we know when
the light and water plant is combin combined
ed combined and put on another lot, it will re release
lease release three lots in the heart of town.
My estimate of the value of these
lots would be at least $8,000 or $10,-

000. If these lots are released, their

value should be figured into the new

location.

As I mentioned in a former article,
the present water supply has been

written about, talked about, criticised

by the press and by the people until

it is a settled fact in a great many
minds that you can not drink Ocala's
water and live. Now mind you, this

reputation was given it by Ocala peo

pie. If you will dig up some of the
files of the Ocala Evening Star and
Ocala Banner, when the fight was on

for the city to buy the water works,

I think you will find enough argu

ment ,against this water to condemn

it for all time. It was brought out at

that time that this water was not

even. fit for baths or to water the
lawn. When the city bought it, we be began
gan began to say "it is pretty fair water."
Then we said "it is good." Then we
had it analyzed and pronounced it
"pure and good, if not better, than
any in the state." Now we might
pull the wool over our own eyes and

make ourselves believe, because the
city owns it, it is not 'just the same

water we abused so when it belong

ed to the company. We cannot fool
the thinking public so easily. It will

take more than a new plant on the
same old site, to convince them this
is not the same old water.

Aside from this bad reputation of

the Ocala water, the smallness of the

of, the Converse mill and the danger

of fire and high insurance, and the
expensiveness of the lift of the water,
owing to elevation of the ground, the
contamination of the water from sew

erage wells, and many other things
that could be mentioned, however I

am going to mention only one more

reason. That is this. The plant is

located in one of the best residential
sections of the town and the people
surrounding it are bitterly opposed to
its being located here. Now these

people are among our very best citi citizens
zens citizens and they certainly have a right
to our consideration. Now,: gentle

men, in the face of all these reasons,

and many others against this loca

tion, do you think the city can afford
to put it there ? Don't you think it
would be far better to locate it at

some point where there would be no

opposition? To my mind to put this

plant at this location would be one of
the greatest mistakes Ocala has ever

made.

The question naturally arises then,

where should it be built? To my way

of thinking, there are only two loca

tions that should be considered for
one minute. The first, Silver Springs.
This is the logical and natural water

supply for Ocala. If we can raise the
money, this is undoubtedly the place

to put it. But if we are not able to
do this, the only logical place in

Ocala is on the north side of town. I
have been told by as good engineers
as there are in this country, men
who have done more surveying and
investigation in this territory than
any other, that our water flow here is
from the north, or northwest. That
is, our subterranean streams, at least
those forming our water level, come
from that direction, and that the
principle supply of water for these
veins comes from Orange Lake. These
statements can certainly be verified

by anyone who will take the trouble

to investigate. I can show you a chain

of sinks and other indications of wa water
ter water leading directly toward Orange

Lake.

Now if this theory is correct, and
I m perfectly satisfied that it is, you
can readily see why we should get

our water supply to the north of us,
because the water coming in from the

north would forever shut out the pos

sibility of contamination from sew-

cated on the north side of town, it
will give us a basis for arguments in
favor of good water for Ocala that
any citizen can easily understand, and
it will go further toward eliminating

jail prejudice, caused by adverse crit

icism of the Ocala water in the past,
than anything we can do.
Of course there will be some minor
objections to any location that could
be suggested, but the one or two
that have been advanced against my
proposition in North Ocala are so in insignificant
significant insignificant I will not take up your
space to reply to them. All I ask is
a thorough investigation of this loca location
tion location by the city council and if it does
not appear to it to be to Ocala's in interest
terest interest to locate it there, then I say

by all means put it where the city

will get the greatest good from it.

Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for so

much of your space, I am your for
better water, more water and cheaper

water. B. H. Sevmour.

The Affleck Millinery Parlors were
glow of brilliancy last evening

when from 8 to 10 o'clock Mrs. Ellis

with her able assistant, Miss Alice
Wev, received the host of patrons and
friends of this popular firm. The

spacious rooms, which are located on
the second floor over Helvenston's
store, were prettily decorated in great
quantities of golden, rod, interspersed
with ferns. The effect was most at

tractive and alluring, as in the mellow
light every bonnet seemed "just the

right one," they were so pretty, dainty

and exquisite in their rich autumn and
winter colorings. Near the front en

trance Mrs. B. F. Borden and Miss

Mamie Counts dispensed refreshing
grepejuice punch as the guests arriv

ed and in a cozy nook Master James

Ellis manipulated the Victrola and

the entrancing strains would have
easily inspired a "millinery dance."
The artistic trimmer of this establish

ment is Miss Wev, of Bartow, who is
a graduate from the Armstrong,

Cator & Co., trimmers, in Baltimore.

The creations shown last evening

were in large and small effects, char

treuse, burnt coffee and black with
white alique being among the popular

shades and effects. A few shadow ef

fects were shown. Trimmings of owl

ostrich and zephyrs seem to be in the

lead, while the bronze and gold ef

fects for ultra dress were exquisite;

also pink and white hid, the flowers to
be used being extra large and are
rich in their velvet colorings. This
opening was largely attended, the
evening being an ideal one, just the

typical alluring moonlit evening to in

spire the witches of revelry to be

abroad in the land. Mrs. Ellis left

nothing undone for the pleasure of

her guests.

capacity for the hardest kind of la labor,
bor, labor, and a willingness to follow the
mandates of the Director. No matter
how long an experience one may have
had in dramatic work, no matter how
versatile the artist may be, the Di Director's
rector's Director's word in motion picture pro production
duction production Is law.
1 remember one versatile actor in
the cast of "The Circular Staircase,"
released in five acts as a Selig Red
Seal Play. This actor has had many
years of experience in the spoken
drama. He came to the screen with
knowledge of his experience and with
knowledge of his own importance.
He was not inclined to observe the
orders of the Director. The Director
selects the types, he selects the cos costumes
tumes costumes to be worn, he orders the en entrances
trances entrances and the exits, and little is left
to the artist. This particular actor
could not understand this procedure.
He had been acustomed to having his
own way on the Btage and there was
many a tilt before he could appreciate
that movie action must be done as
the Director orders, for the Director
of Motion Picture production is all
responsible and all supreme.
I was delighted to be assigned the
character lead as "Aunt Ray Innls" In
Mary Roberts Rinehart's great mystery
story, "The Circular Staircase." I felt
that I was fitted to such a part. As you
will probably remember, "Aunt Ray
leases a banker's home. She is a
woman with the courage of her own
convictions, and when warned to
remain away from the summer house
she is more resolved to remain right
there.
"Aunt Ray" and her servant are
aroused at 3 a. m. by the sound of a
revolver shot. They venture forth,
find the men folks have disappeared,
and "Aunt Ray" is horrified to dis discover
cover discover a lifeless body huddled in the
dark shadows at the foot of the circu circular
lar circular staircase from which the five-part
production takes its name. The ac action
tion action starts right then and there and
is never finished until the final scene
where the lovers are reunited.
There is a scene in which I am
supposed to do battle with a myste mysterious
rious mysterious stranger in a secret room which
I have discovered by means of a tape
measure. There is nothing supposi suppositious
tious suppositious about this conflict, either.
"Put the pepper into this fight," or ordered
dered ordered the Director. When It was fin finished
ished finished the unfortunate actor in the
struggle had his shirt partially torn
from his back. To all intents and
purposes It was a real fight, and the
actor had difficulty In escaping my
clutches and springing to the circu circular
lar circular staircase. Then to top it all off,
the unfortunate individual bad to
plunge beadfirst down the staircase
to his supposed death, and he cer certainly
tainly certainly had earned his money after the
day's work was concluded.
I think I have put my very best art
Into the character of "Aunt Ray
Innes" In the Selig Red Seal Play,
"The Circular Staircase. I bave al always
ways always been a great admirer of Mrs.
Rinehart's writings, and there Is
every opportunity to put forth one's
best endeavors In ttiis story.
A majority of the artists say that
motion picture acting is the hardest
kind of work. I never deemed It so
I try to forget myself in my part.
throw my entire personality into the
roles i create and I love the work.
However, It Is an art that cannot
be acquired by any "school" other
than the schcol of long experience.
Actors of years of experience on the
stage are the more successful because
they nave a foundation upon which to
work.
