Jimmy Ward'it Ilcaiillful and Darlne
Flight In III Cunti niplane at
;reentille, S. C, a Few Day Ajjo.

Jimmle WarJ set the dells of Paria
mountain reverberating- with the tu tumultuous
multuous tumultuous shouts of thousands of people
by the three sensational flights yes yesterday
terday yesterday afternoon in "Shooting Star."
the jaunty little Curtiss biplane in
which he has won recognition the
world over as a fearless aviator, says
the Greenville Daily News.
Promptly at the hour scheduled for
the opening of the Greenville News
aviation meet, the aeroplane was roll rolled
ed rolled out of the hangar and given a
hasty but thorough grooming by the
expert mechanicians. After being in introduced
troduced introduced to the expectant throng in
the sentorian voice of the announcer,
Ward doffed his helmet in response to
the cheers and stepped lightly into
his aeroplane. One of the mechanic mechanicians
ians mechanicians walked behind the machine and
gave the big propeller a turn and
when the point of compression was
reached. Ward threw the sparker on.
Instantly the great blades began a
da"ling circle of light and the two
assistants braced themselves against
the ground as the aeroplane struggled
to get away. At a signal from Ward
they released their "hold and the won wonderful
derful wonderful machine shqt forward on the
runaway with the speed of an express
train. Down the level course for
some 800 feet the aeroplane sped, the
little wheels barely touching the sod
and the biplane quivering as though
anxious to assert its supremacy over
the feattiered creatures of the air.
With all the grace of an eagle and al almost
most almost inperceptible to the thousands of
eyes riveted upon it, the wonderful
contrivance left the earth an,j slid into
the air on a sharp slant, and Jimmle
Ward was away on a trackless sea
that has no shore,

Attaining a height of three hundred

fet in straight flight the machine
careened to the wind and sailed across

the aviation field. Round and round it

went, preserving an almost universal

height and demonstrating beyond
question Mr. Ward's skill as a master

pilot of the air. So perfect wa.s the
movement of the machine while aloft

that the purring of the engine alone

denoted it as a creation of man, in

stead of some gigantic bird. Return

ing to a point over the northern end

of the enclosure the aviator tilted his

planes sharply and shot down on a

slant that caused the spectators to

gasp for fear ihe adventurous boy

would be dashed to pieces upon the

ground. Within a few feet of the

ground he tilted his machine up, until

it was on a level, and skimming over
the runaway with the wheels of the

aeroplane barely brushing the grass.
The contact of the aeroplane with the

ground was as light as the lodging of
a thistle down. The propeller eeased

its whirring, and the aeroplane sped
over the ground under Its own mo

mentum for a hundred feet or more

and stopped within a few feet of the
spot where it arose sofce twelve min minutes
utes minutes before.

His next flight was a speed flight,
showing the machine doing seventy seventy-five
five seventy-five miles an hour.
The "Spiral Glide
By far more spectacular and haz hazardous
ardous hazardous was Ward's last flight. When
the aviator left the runaway on this
flight few realized that he was about
to undertake a feat which ha1 added
to the death roll of aviation the
names of suoh notable aviators as
Molsant, Hoxley and Johnstone. On
this trip Ward soared high for the
purpose of descending by the "spiral
glide." Climbing to the air to a height
of 4,800 feet the daring blrdman cir circled
cled circled the aviation field for several min minutes
utes minutes and then began the thrilling and
hazardous spiral glide to the earth.
With the front plane turned down
sharply, and the whole machine tilt

ed side wise. Ward descended rapidly
to earth and once more skimmed over

the runaway to the hangar.

PRESIDENT FAVORS PARCELS POST
President Taft sent another message
to Congress just before its adjourn adjournment
ment adjournment for the holidays. He gave his
approval to the proposed national re
serve association of banks, but made
It plain that he was against the es
tablishment of a great central bank.
Immediate establishment of a rural
parcels post was .urged. The president
took the position that the post would j
not destroy the business of the country
storekeepers.
"Instead of doing this," he said. "I
think the change will greatly Increase
business for the benefit of alL The
reduction in the cost of living it will
bring about ought to make its com com-mlsion
mlsion com-mlsion certain."
On the Panama canal the president
dealt with the question of whether
American shipping should pay tolls.
"I am very confident that the United
states has the power to relieve from
the payment of to-lls any part of our
shipping that Congress deems wise,"
he said. "We want control. It Is the
United States' money that built It. We
have the right to charge tolls for Its
use; These tolls must be the same to
every one; but when we are dealing
with our own ships the practice of
many governments subsidizing their
own merchant vessels Is so well es established
tablished established in general that a subsidy is
equal to the tolls, an equivalent re remission
mission remission of tolls cannot be held to be
a discrimination in the use of the
canal."
Among the president's recommenda recommendations
tions recommendations were the following:
An immediate increase of two thou thousand
sand thousand in the enlisted strength of the
navy.
Abolition of the smaller navy yards.
Contributory pension system for
government employes.
Elimination of all local offices from
politics.
' Increased appropriations for the

cial special board of engineers oh the water waterways
ways waterways from the lakes to the Gulf.
Power in the president to remove

compensation legislation called to the
attention of Congress.
JUDGE WALL
Judge Joseph B. Wall, one of the
oldest and best known jurists in the
state, "died at his home in Tampa yes yesterday.
terday. yesterday. PLEASED WITH PERKINS
The Times-Union of the 20th says:
Hon. James W. Perkins, judge of the
circuit court, seventh judicial circuit,
passed through the city yesterday
from Marianna, where he has been
holding court in place of Judge W. H.
Price who was disqualified on a num
ber of cases before the court. Judge
Perkins while In the city bought a
Cadillac and with Mrs. Perkins, who
is with him, will make the balance of
the trip to his home in DeLand in his
new machine. Judge Perkins is one
of the most recently appointed of the
circuit judges, .having been appointed
In July. He was one of the most act
ive senators in the last Florida legis
lature. He discharged his duties so
satisfactorily while presiding for
Judge Pierce that Jhe members of the
Marianna bar and the visiting law lawyers
yers lawyers who were in attendance at court
gave him a testimonial of their high
appreciation of his uniform courtesy.
fairness and justice and of the pleas
ure of their association with him.
PUT YOUR FRIENDS WISE
Willis B. Powell, of the Tampa board
of trade, supplies the following Infor
mation, which every reader should
forward to any friend in another
state who contemplates moving to
Florida:
xnere has been considerable com
plaint from all over the state from
settlers who have shipped household
goods from other states to Florida.
They prepay the freight on the house
hold goods at shipping point and when
the goods arrive in Florida they ar
obliged to pay additional freight be
fore they can get their goods from the
railroad.
There is an "exception sheet" ap
pllcable to Florida which the Northern
railroad agent overlooks, which causes
the trouble.
If Teal estate agents and others
would advise their friends or custo
mers to have their household goods
released at $10 per 100 to Jacksonville,
or High Springs, Fla,. and for $5 per
100 from those points to Interior
points of Florida all this trouble and
overcharge would be obviated.
The $10 release on the bill of lading
from Jacksonville or High Springs to
interior points places the household
goods in a higher classification. If re
leased at $5 per 100 the classification
would be the same from shipping point
through to destination, and there
would be no extra charge to pay.
Both houses of Congress adjourned
yesterday for the holiday recess. Some
of the members living in nearby states
will return home to spend Christmas
but the big majority of the senators
and representatives will remain in the
capital. Of late years the holiday sea
son has become a period of great so
cial brilliance in Washington and as
a consequence very few of those
prominent in public life, to say noth
Ing of their wives and daughters, care
to leave the city at this time. Then
too, me aoomion or railroad passes
has been a potent influence in chang
ing the old habit of the members of
Congress in making frequent trips to
and from their homes.

thirty cats and two dogs are named

COMIXG TO OCALA
We clip the following interesting
item from the Atlanta Constitution:
Farewell Dinner to J. M. Tkomis
Bankers and brokers of the city will
tender a farewell dinner Friday night
to James M. Thomas, assistant cashier
of the Fourth National Bank, who
leaves the city shortly to accept the
vice presidency of a bank in Florida.
The dinner, which will be given by
th Atlanta Bankers and Brokers'
Club, will be served at the University
Club. It is expected that upwards of
one hundred of the city's mo3t promi
nent banking men will be present.
Mr. Thomas' resignation as assistant
cashier of the Fourth National, which
was tendered something over two
weeks ago, takes effect today, and he
will leave shortly for Ocala, Florida,
where he will accept a position as
vice president of the Munroe & Cham-
bliss Bank. In his departure Atlanta
loses one of her most widely known
young banking men, and one who has
been popular.
For twelve year3 Mr. Thomas has
filled the position which he is now
giving up. He was chosen for this of
fice without previous banking expe
rience, having been connected with the
Southern Express Company for a num
ber of years before becoming asso
ciated with the bank he has since
served. His record with the Fourth
National has been such, It is said, that,
while the officers of the Institution
are exceedingly loath to have him go
to Florida, they feel that the promo promotion
tion promotion which awaits him there Is a most
justly deserved one, and predict for
him unbounded success in his new
field of labor.
The dinner Friday night will be
served at 8 o'clock.

An Organization of Bnslaes .n.
Which Will Make an Important
Move 'in Building Up the City
It will be remembered that the Star
has had several editorials, urging the
necessity of a local organization to
build houses for Ocala. The plan as
set forth in the Star was to form an
association of home people and let
them subscribe for one or more shares
of stock, and as soon as there were
sufficient funds in the treasury, to
proceed to build a substantial cottage
and follow it up with others as rapid rapidly
ly rapidly as possible.
The idea has borne fruit. Messrs.
Baxter Cam and Frank Ditto hare
been busy for several weeks on the
plan and have secured seventy-one
subscribers to the association and they
have taken ninety-five of the 100
shares.
Yesterday afternoon the subscrib subscribers
ers subscribers were called to meet in Mr. W. W.
Clyatt's office. About twenty-five
citizens responded, among them most
of the business and professions of the
city being represented. The meeting
was called to ordeT by electing Mr. J.
P. Phillips chairman and Mr. Baxter
Carn secretary. On motion of MrT
Z. C. Chambliss, Dr. J. E. Chace was
elected president, Mr. J. P. Phillips
vice president, Mr. Baxter Carn, secre

tary-treasurer, and the above named
officers with -Messrs. L. W. Duvai and
S. H. Martin were elected the board
of directors.
A committee on name of the asso association
ciation association was appointed and after a few
minutes deliberation, the name, "The

Citizens' Realty Company," was adopt adopted.
ed. adopted.
Most of the members present signed
the charter and the secretary was to
secure the signatures of the others.
It was lef to the board of directors
to determine whether or not the asso
ciation should commence the erection
of a house before the charter was ob obtained
tained obtained from the state. The secretary
was authorized to solicit more shares
of stock, when the full amount of the
$10,000 capital stock would be taktn,
and the list closed. The big list of
subscribers will be the best evidence
of how popular the movement is. It is
hoped that as soon as the charter can
be secured at least one house can be
completed each month.
Thus, one by one, Ocala is taking
advantage of her opportunities and is
preparing to meet her needs.
