To the City Council of the City
Gentlemen I respectfully recom
mend to your honorable body a con consideration
sideration consideration of the erection of an en entirely
tirely entirely new water works system for
the city of Ocala. and express my
disapproval of the purchase of the
present water works system, for the
First. Because we have an excel excellent
lent excellent natural sewerage by the sinking
of deep wells, which ip fully demon demonstrated
strated demonstrated by the many such wells now
in use, and which make it unneces unnecessary
sary unnecessary and undesirable for the city to
maintain an artificial sewerage sys-t
tern, and at perhaps much greater
expense to the citizens of Ocala.
Second. It would not be to the best
interest of the citizens of Ocala to
prohibit them from enjoying the ben
efits and advantages derived and af
forded by these subterranean streams
Third. The wells of the present
water works are located within the
city limits, and there is at least a
probable danger of contamination and
pollution of the water furnished from
such wells by reason of the natural
sewerage system now in use.
Fourth. The present water works
system has been in use and operation
for a great many years, and it may he
that the underground pipes are con considerably
siderably considerably worn, or are in a defective
condition, and it would not be feasi feasible
ble feasible to ascertain the real condition of
same. It occurs to me that there
would be grave danger in purchasing
the present water works, and to do so
might result in extraordinary unfor unfor-seen
seen unfor-seen expense to the city in the way
of repairing and replacing same, or
putting same in proper serviceable
condition, an perhaps, nothing what whatever
ever whatever would be gained by the purchase
of the old works.
Fifth. The pressure of water and
facilities afforded by the present wa water
ter water works is dangerously inadequate

Coming back toward the fair grounds

changing his mind, headed directly
across the lower business district or
the city and over toward the estuary.

Dante, when a boy at the festival
of flowers and prayer met a little girl
named Beatrice. Dante was a little
more than nine. Beatrice was scarce scarcely
ly scarcely nine. Dante's intensely poetic soul,
his passion for the good, the true and
the beautiful, was set afire by the
deeply spiritual charm in Beatrice's
face. In this love there was no" alloy
of sensual affeetion. To Dante as he
grew older Beatrice became a living
incarnation of womanly purity, a type
in flesh and blood of the uplifting in influences
fluences influences of womanhood. .The poet saw
her only a few times, and then only
for brief moments after their- first
meeting at the festivak Beatrice ac accepted

spirit in which, it was offered, as a
homage not to her sex, but to the vir virtues

the concept "came to him. Yes, that
was it. He had stumbled upon the
clew to her tantalizing personality.
The fingers, sunburned aud boyish,
told the story. He had tried to treat
with her as a woman when ?he was
not a woman. She was a mere girl,
and a boyish girl at that, with sun sunburned
burned sunburned fingers that delighted in doing
what boys' fingers did, with a body
and muscles that liked swimming and
violent endeavor of all sorts, with a
mind that was daring but that dared

that delighted in rifles and revolvers.

Somehow, as he pondered and watch

at home listening to the choir boys
chanting. She reminded him of those
boys, or their voices, rather. The same
sexless quality was there. In the body
of her she was a woman. In the mind
of her she had not grown up. She
had not been exposed to ripening in
fluences of that sort. She had had no
mother. Von, her father, native ser
vants and rough island life had con
stitnted her training. Horses and
rifles had been her toys, camp and
trail her nursery. From what she had
told him her seminary days had been
an exile, devoted to study and to cease

swimming of Hawaii. A boy's train

him to do. He must meet her on her
own basis of boyhood and not make
the mistake of treating her as a wo woman.

the woman she would Ik when her
nature awoke, and he wondered if he
could love her just as she was and
