Made by Jimmy Ward la the Shooting
Star from the Fair Grounds
There was a large crowd out at the
fair grounds Sunday afternoon, to see
the performance of Jimmy Ward and
his famous airship, the "Shooting Star."
It had been intended to make the
start at Z o'clock, but at that hour a
string of autoes and other vehicles
and many pedestrians were visible
down the street, heading for the fair
grounds, and it seemed only courtesy
to wait for them. People kept on ar arriving
riving arriving till 3:30. and a few minutes
after the Shooting Star was wheeled
out of its improvised hangar and taken
across inside the circle of the racetrack
to the north end of the field.
Everybody inspected with great in
terest the famous machine as it was
taken to Its starting place. It was
about the same size as the one used
here by Lincoln Beachey last spring,
and there was no difference to the un uninitiated
initiated uninitiated eye, except that the propeller
was curved Instead of straight. Judg Judging
ing Judging by the rapidity with which Mr.
Ward and his assistants handled it, it
was somewhat more up-to-date than
Beachey's machine. An aeroplane Is a
fair example of how far a man must
depart from nature in looks when he
tries to invade the air. An aeroplane
looks more like a bathhouse than a
bird, and It doesn't look very much
like a bathhouse, either.
It was just 3:45 when the Shooting
Star's motor started. The propeller
flashed into life with a Tapidity that
made it in a second or two a faint blur
at the back of the machine, to which
three powerful men hung with all
their strength to keep it on the ground
until the aviator was ready. At his
signal, they let go and the aeroplane
ran swiftly down the field, just like
some large, long-legged birds will do
if they have time before taking flight.
Past the grand stand it came on its
fast-spinning wheels, then, as the
aviator waved his hand at the spec spectators,
tators, spectators, it left the ground and soared
Into the air as gracefully as an eagle.
Away up and to the southeast it wing winged,
ed, winged, then coming about it flew In long
circles above the admiring and almost
breathless spectators and came down
In a half-mile slant almost on the spot
it left. Such a long way it went and

FROM TAX COLLECTOR COLBERT
Ocala, Fla., Jan. 1, 1312.
To whom it may concern: In reply
to certain unjust criticism and false
charges made against me, by the Craw Crawford
ford Crawford show people, at their tent show
here last Saturday night, I wish to say say-that
that say-that I have no word of apology to
make in regard to the collection of the
so-clalmed high license. The law is on
the statute books, and the collection of
this same license tax from the C. W.
Parks Co. was upheld in a decision by
Hon. W. S. Bulock, judge of the circuit
court, in 1908.
And, further, I defy anybody to show
where a circus has shown in Ocala for
$7.75 since I have been tax colector.
As long as this law is on the statute
books, not revoked by the courts and
I remain tax collector, I will do my
dead level best to enforce It.
Yours very truly,
W. L. Colbert, Tax Colector.

he arrived and divined that he was not
particularly delighted to see them. But
see them he must, and so pressing was
the need that he led the two men into
the stuffy office. Later in the afternoon
