the trusts and their relation to the

- FOR SOMEBODY
We venture to suggest to the Ocala
Star In a very sincere and brotherl
spirit that reduction of the tariff does
not necessarily or even probably mean
that the receipts of the treasury will
be thereby lessened. The income of
the treasury depends upon the money
value or the quantity of dutiable arti articles
cles articles imported. A reduction of the tar tariff
iff tariff would theoretically increase the
value and quality of the Imports.
The above is a very proper and sen sen-slble
slble sen-slble suggestion, but Just why the
Times made it to the Star we are una unable

A friend of the Star's speaks of the
relief to the eye afforded by a visit to
the country and the welcome darkness

few of us think of. Nature has built
our eyes to expect the relief of the
darkness that comes every evening,
but in the city, when the night ar arrives,

Justified the good things that have
been said of it by the press of the
country. The play deals largely with
police methods in the larger cities of
the United States, and the glimpses it
gives of life among the officially and
commercially powerful of New York
City are rivaled in verity and Interest
only by the strong situations of Mr.
Klein's other great dramas of con contemporary

The plot Is one that enchains the at attention

Where blended into one
Are topaz, emerald all it seems,
And Heaven's reflected sapphire gleams
Flings answer to the sun
And gazing down its pensive, winding
An almost fairyland it seems to me
As from a ripple leaps a trout
In opalescent jewelry.
I know a river fair to see,
'Neath murmuring shades of pines.

Of verdant clinging vines
Speaks to me in a voice so sweet
Toward its shaded brink
I fain would turn my weary steps
And resting there, its beauty drink.
