ful truthful remarks about the Everglades:
The Stroller has considerable to say
In this Issue regarding the Everglade
lands. It Is a topic of great interest :
to many hundreds of good folks all
over the United States. Of late the
papers of the country have had con considerable
siderable considerable to say regarding the ultimate
project. Two different companies that
have been handling Glade lands are in
trouble with their buyers. It Is a
great pity that this is so. I do not be believe
lieve believe that there was any fraud con-'
nected with the deal in any way, but
simply that no provision was made to
properly drain the lands in connection
with the work that Js now being done
by the state. To carry out this work
among themselves the settlers will
have no end of trouble, it will be al almost
most almost Impossible. What should have
been done, and what Is being done by
the best companies now selling lands.
Is to charge enough for the lands so
that a certain sum per acre can be
laid aside for drainage work to con connect

present time there Is but a tiny per percentage
centage percentage of the Glade lands available
for cultivation, and these are liable to
overflow. Not until all of the big
canals are completed, which will be
In about two years,- will the great
acreage be drained. It is estimated
that lands for eight miles on both
sides of the canals will come under
these drainage systems. With these
canals completed it is proposed to
lower Lake Okeechobee three feet, and
thus prevent any overflow. People
who have bought lands In the Ever Everglades
glades Everglades are not sure that they will be
workable the year around until this
work Is complete, though lands near
the big canals can be worked for ten
months In the year where they are
ditched with laterals. The companies
selling lands in the Glades should en encourage,
courage, encourage, and are encouraging, their
settlers to go In for staples, rather
than for truck crops. It would seem
that trucking could be greatly over overdone

AT THE CHRISTIAN" CIIlilCH
If they have red-letter days at the
Christian church, yesterday certainly
must have been one of them, for they
had an unusually large turn out at the
Sunday school, and a congregation at
the preaching service that would have
done credit to a church of doubl Its
membership. Then again, before the
sermon Mrs. Winston sang the beau beautiful
tiful beautiful song, "I Have a Friend, You
Ought to Know Ilim," as none else in
Ocala could have sung it. To add also
to the musical part of the service Mr.
Ten Eyck accompanied the organ with
his violin. However, these were only
preliminaries, for it was the sermon
oX the Rev. Sam J. White, formerly
pastor of this church, that the au audience
dience audience was anxious to hear, and those
who were fortunately present heard
such an earnest, forceful discourse, de delivered
livered delivered with all the beautiful diction,
charming eloquence and exquisite
word painting for which this speaker
is noted, that at its conclusion every
person in the congregation congrat congratulated
ulated congratulated himself or herself on being
The speaker somewhat startled his
audience when he commenced by say saying
ing saying that for his topic he had chosen
the phrase, "Playing the Fool," and
he illustrated his meaning by quoting
the errors of many people who in their
words and actions refuse to believe In
the all-powerful strength and work of
a supreme being. He could not under
stand how a man could look on the
wonderful works of nature and attri attribute
bute attribute it to a work of chance. To him he
said there was a voice in every blade
of grass in every lovely flower, in the
air we breathe, in health-giving wa water,
ter, water, in. the glory of the sun and the
beauty of the stars, a voice that spoke
God's love to man.
Taking his watch in his hand he
asked if anyone was foolish enough to
say that that wonderful piece of
mechanism, with its minute detail of
serviceable parts, could be a work of
chance, but how much more wonder wonderful
ful wonderful was every detail of this mighty
universe; the planets as they move in
their various orbits with a precision
and exactness far and away more. true,
than -Ary-Traich "oTFsi?T"fineaol human
skill; the changing seasons, following
each with the regularity of time itself;
the action of the tides and revolution
of the earth on its own axis, all point
to a controlling, guiding hand, whose
work Is omnipotent, otherwise with the
least deflection of any detail from its
regular action the system would be
plunged into chaos and the universe
destroyed. How foolish then for any
to say that this mighty work Is only
a matter of chance.
He spoke of some wanting to get all
the worldly joys of the present time,
promising themselves that later they
would be willing to give to him their
service, but procrastination being the
thief of time it would soon be too
late. Worldly pleasures and happi happiness
ness happiness should not be the only aim and
object of life; in fact, the speaker
doubted the possibility of perfect hap happiness
piness happiness except founded on a belief In
divine providence and the resurrect !i-n
God's ways and not man's ways.
None can understand the mystery of
the casket. We stand beside it and
gaze for the last time on the father
who guided our footsteps, on Die loved

mother heart crushed. We say. Oh. why
did God serve us so. We cannot an answer,
