were of the smooth bore type, and
each threw a solid shot weighing 100

the car windows .that there must be
solid reason for It out of sight. It is
easy to see mat mere is some spienuiu

work on It.
During the Seminole war, the gov government
ernment government established a chain of forts
some twenty to forty miles apart from
Palatka to Tampa. The army officers
Invariably picked out the best spots
In the"country for the location of these
forts. Fort King, near Ocala, was one
of these spots, and the next .to the
northeast was Port McCoy. With its
high and healthful site, fertile land
and pretty lakes, it combined the Ideal
and useful in the highest degree. Fort
McCoy of today is a pretty and thriv
ing town and has the makings of a
city. With its big sawmill. well
equipped stores and fine surrounding
country. It has the three principal In
dustrial supports manufacture, com
merce and agriculture and it looks
good enough for art, too.
A few years ago, a traveler through
this country could have sometimes Tid Tid-den

or longer, or some neat array of house
and outbuildings recently erected by
an energetic settler from another
state. The land and the climate is
there and the people are coming and
the day isn't far distant when the
Ocala Northern trains will run be
tween an unbroken succession of
farms, with a pretty village every sec
ond or third mile.
Bay Lake with its gem of a sheet of
water and indications of a big timber
plant near by, was next to Fort .Me
Coy, and then came Orange Springs,
oia-iasnionea dui wiae-awase, wun
numerous new houses built and build
lngs since July 4.
The new town of Kenwood, that has
sprung up almost by magic, with Its
live-looking plant of the Putnam
Handle Manufacturing Company, was
another- pleasant surprise. There are
no 'more Important towns from Ken
wood to Palatka, but a very good
country, with dozens of pretty lakes
and many thriving farms and hand
some homes hi sight of the railroad.
Except to pass thru on the train, the
writer hadn't been in Palatka for
twenty years, and he hardly knew the
place. The first thing he noticed was
the splendid streets, the entire busU
ness section paved with solid brick, and
a lot better brick than that on Ocala's
square and adjacent streets. We don't
want to move to Palatka, but we wish
we had the power to sneak over there
some dark night and steal the streets,
or those that are paved with brick.
When we first heard of Palatka, it
was called the Gem City of Florida.
From our observations of Sunday, it
seems to us that it deserves the appel appellation
lation appellation more than ever.
W hitVA na flm tnrt a v tn write iih
a description of Palatka as It deserves.
What we want to impress on Ocala
folks is its importance thru the Ocala
Northern to them. The railroad runs
Its trains on the Q. 8. & F. tracks
down into the business heart of the
city, and can run them far out on the
dock to the deeD water of the St.
The people of Ocala and contiguous
territory have been -sweating and
swearing for the last twenty years or
more over high freight rates. Here Is
their chance for permanent salvation.
Its practicable, and what Is more, it
' is easy for them. If they will only go
about it. to establish water transpor transportation
tation transportation from the Ocala. Northern ter
minal to New York or Baltimore. A
steam schooner line would be the best
thing vessels that could come over
the bar and up to Palatka under their
own power. Such boats could make
the trip in four days or less, and there
is business enough to keep two of
them running steadily. Even a line
of sailing vessels would be an immense
help. There was one big three-masted
schooner In the river Sunday, and
mere enouia always oe a aozen 10
twenty. There were that many there
when we came to Florida, twenty-six
years ago, and there are now at least
five times as many people in this ter territory
ritory territory as there was then.
No doubt that the people of Palatka
would heartily aid those of Ocala In
'such a movement. It is primarily to
our interest to make the move. The
Ocala Northern is first and foremost
a local road, and the people of this
city should give It every dollar of
business that they are not obliged to
give to other lines. The bigger roads
will absorb It if they can. and they
will never take the home interest in
us taken by President Rents and his

the stock of the Barnes-Jessup Com

Maltland was one of the big men of

grown up with the state. The Phil

must have been, they argued, a rever reversion

to some robber baron long antecedent
to William Penn. And the speculation
was true. The blood of some lawless
adventurer of the past, discreetly for forgot
got forgot by the conservative section of the
family, bubbled in his veins unchecked
by the repressive atmosphere of his
home and immediate environment.
He had thoroughly Identified him himself
self himself with his new surroundings and
had plunged into all the activities of
the west. During one period of his
life he had actually served as sheriff
of one of the border counties, and it
was a rapid "bad man" indeed, who
enjoyed any advantage over him when
it came to drawing his "gun." His
skill and daring had been unques

which still abides, especially in
the mountains wnere things yet re remained
mained remained almost as primitive as they
had been from the beginning.
His fame had been accompanied by
fortune, too; the cattle upon a thou
sand hills were his, the treasures of
mines of fabulous richness were at

one of the greatest of the bonanza
palaces on the hills of that city, con
fronting the snow-capped mountain
range. For the rest he held stock in
all sorts of corporations, was a di director
rector director In numerous concerns and so
on the reader can supply the usual
catalogue, they are all alike. He had
married late in life and was the father
of two little girls and a boy, the old oldest
est oldest sixteen and the youngest ten.
Going east, which he did not love,
on an infrequent business trip, he
had renewed his acquaintance with
his brother and the one ewe Iamb of
his brother's flock, to-wit, the afore aforementioned
mentioned aforementioned Enid. He had been struck,
as everybody was, by the splendid
personality of the girl and had striven
earnestly to disabuse her mind of the
prevalent Idea that there was nothing
much worth while on the continent
beyond the Allegheny except scenery.

Here i dime. Save It- Not a, large amount, you say? No, you're
right, yet It represents ten per cent interest on pne dollar for a year. It's
the little things that count In this life. History tells us that the Duke of
Wellington attributes the victory of the Allies at Waterloo to the closing of
the Hugomont Castle gates by James McDowell and John Graham. It was a
small thing. But the results have been marvelous as we look back over the
intervening years. Philip Armour knew the value of little things. They
say he packed everything but the last breath of a hog utilizing the waste in
the manufacture of by-products made him wealthy. The small boy by stick sticking
ing sticking his finger in the leak in the dam saved Holland from destruction. A
few drops of water on a stone makes no Impression the constant drip
wears away the stone. The little point on the auger prepares the way for
the large bored hole. .A single grain of corn produces from one to two per perfect
fect perfect ears. And so the little dime Is a part of a dollar. Dollars' at interest

an abundant harvest- Then save the DIME! Watch it grow.
