the district to as nearly as possible
extricate herself from the embarrass embarrassing

To the credit of the Ocala Baptist
church be it said that in the face of
so many worldly attractions which ap appear
pear appear to have adopted Sunday as the

special day for their exploitation,

there was a large congregation at ail

the evening service, at which time the
church was well filled and all the ex

ercises, -including a bass solo by Mr.
K. C. Robinson, were listened to with a

great deal of pleasure and attention,
and the pastor gave notice that the
evening service next Sunday there
would be some special music by the
class trained by Mr. Robinson and

which is said to be very fine, and it is

expected there will be a very full house

to listen to them.

At the morning service there were

thirteen choir members present, but In
this case it certainly was not an un unlucky
lucky unlucky number for under the leadership

of Mr. Q. A. Nash they led the con

gregational singing with so much
spirit and precision that they compell

ed nearly every member of the con congregation
gregation congregation to do their very best which
made the singing part of the service a

feature. Miss Porter sang a solo in

her usual artistic manner.

Pastor Chapman gave notice that the

money subscribed to pay for the new

building site had nearly all been paid,
and the title has passed for the lot.
The amount raised was some $4500. He

was well pleased with the showing
made, and took it as a good omen in
regard to the raising of the $40,000

necessary to build and equip the new
church and intimated that it should

take but a couple of years to raise the

whole amount.

Christianity is founded on love and
that love must have expression in our
daily life, and without the love that

takes hold of God and our fellow man,
that goes out to help others, to share
with them their griefs and sorrows, to

point them to a better life, there can

be no true Christianity, and a man

tension of this road from Otter Creek
to the Suwanee river, which means
a trunk line through the country

north of Otter Creek is caused by the

failure of certain large land owners
to co-operate with the road in the

agreed upon. Where the road crosses
a man's land who owns only a small

farm the officials expect to pay for

a large body of land will receive
more benefit than he can confer, and
the road expects his cooperation. This

Mr. J. M. Douglass of Weirsdale has
announced that he is a candidate for
county commissioner. We are very
glad to learn this for we are much in
need of a commissioner from our neck
of the woods, and we feel sure that
Mr. Douglass, is the proper man for
this position. He is certainly very
popular with his many friends here,
and if he goes in maybe we will stand
a chance of getting some of the much
needed improvements in this locality,

namely: the connection of the hard

road between Weirsdale and North

Lake Weir.
