REACHED HIGH WATER MARK

tne bank having over $218,000 on de deposit
posit deposit at the close of business on that
day. ...The growth of this bank's busi business

stockholders, and it speaks well for the
general Increase of business in the
county, as both of the other banks of
the city have Increased their deposits
very largely' over what they had
twenty-two months ago, when the
Ocala National was organized.
While on our rounds yesterday we
dropped Into Mr. Woodrow's office on

and saw for the first time a water

the proposed building soon to be erect erected
ed erected by the owners of the vacant lot on
the square located between the Ocala
National Bank, and the building now
occupied by Mr. Condon and the Ocala
and Southwestern Railroad Co., and
which was formerly the home of the
Central National Bank.
We asked Mr. Woodrow what he was
doing with the sketch and he explain explained
ed explained by saying that he only has a lease
on his present office until next fall;
that he asked President Edwards of
the Ocala National Bank when the
building was going up as he wanted to

The new postofflce building In Ocala
haa had much to do with the recent
building up of the north side of the
square and particularly the west half
of the block on which now stands the
Ocala National Bank, the Lanier Rob Robertson
ertson Robertson building, the Cam building and
the Bierman building. It Is not so
many years ago that this half-block
was occupied by the old ZeButt house,
which had to be torn down to make
way for these handsome buildings.
Mr. Woodrow sold all of these lots and
naturally takes a prld in seeing them
all built on. When this new building
goes up the only vacant lot will be the
one which Dr. Chace bought and sold
to Messrs. Carney and Phillips. And
so Ocala grows.

Klectrlo Plant Should lie Enlarged
In the opinion of your committee
the electric light plant at the present
time is scarcely large cnoush for the
present requirements and unquestiona unquestionably
bly unquestionably too small to take care of the fu future
ture future growth of our prosperous city.
We believe that we should have a plant
of such capacity that it would meet
all requirements of our present needs
and also that would take care of the
manufacturing industries that would
locate here, so we could offer them
sufficient power at a very reasonable
cost. Thi would be an inducement
for various enterprises to locate in ourjwa
city and we further recommend to the
Board of Trade to lay the importance
of this matter before the city council
and uri?e the importance to increase
the capacity of our electric lisrht plant
of fu Water Plant
We further recommend that the city
council be urged to negotiate and con contract
tract contract for a new up-to-date water plant,
of such capacity, as to supply the
wants of at least L'0,000 people and
also supply the city sewerage.
Combine the City Plant
We would further recommend that
the water works and the electric light
plants be combined and located con conveniently
