Fine Tribute to Our City from Its

Breeze man attended the meeting of
the Florida printers at Ocala last
week, and enjoyed the trip and vis visit

the craft.
Headquarters were at the Har Harrington
rington Harrington Hall Hotel, and if your busi business
ness business ever takes you there, you will
make no mistake in making that
your stopping place. That much on
the side.
Whenever the Breeze man is away
he tries to keep his eyes open for
something that can be used as a sug suggestion
gestion suggestion at home. At Ocala there is
no trouble to do that. That town is
making a loud noise all the time in
the way of both doing things and
letting people know they are doing
them, and as a result they have to
keep busy to take care of the people
and the businesse that comes there.
Ocala is the largest inland city in
the state, and from appearances and
bank reports, one of the most pros prosperous,
perous, prosperous, and its foundation of pros prosperity
perity prosperity is expressed by the sign on an
archway erected at the depot adver advertising
tising advertising its coming fair, which reads:
"The farmer is the backbone of this
community. Come and see what we
are doing." It is further empha emphasised
sised emphasised in a handsome booklet adver advertising
tising advertising Marion county from which we
quote a paragraph: "Marion's chief
industry is agriculture over $5, $5,-000,000
000,000 $5,-000,000 paid for her products."
And Ocala occupies the position
she does because for a number of
years past her business interests
have found noting too much to do if
the result was more and better
farms. Her bankers advanced the
money without interest to build good
roads so that the farmer could get
his crops to market, and when he got
them to the market he got cash for
them. Business men encouraged the
purchase and breeding of more and
better live stock, and all classes vied
one with another in encouraging
more and better farming, and the re result

have to come to the court house in

Sir. Ragland Writes Interesting
Letter on This Subject.

Madison Heights, Va. Mr. Chas. A.
Ragiand, of this place, writes: "I have
been taking Thedford's Black-Draught
for indigestion, and other stomach troub troubles,
les, troubles, also colds, and find it to be the very
best medicine I have ever used.
After taking Black-Draught for a few
days, I always feel like a new man."
Nervousness, nausea, heartburn, pain
in pit of stomach, and a feeling of full fullness
ness fullness after eating, are sure symptoms of
stomach trouble, and should be given the
proper treatment, as your strength and

health depend very largely upon your

food and its digestion.

To get quick and permanent relief

from these ailments, you should take
a medicine of known curative merit.

Its 75 years of splendid success, in the
treatment of just such troubles, proves
the real merit of Thedford's Black-

Draught. Safe, pleasant, gentle in action,

and without bad after-effects, it is sure
to benefit both young and old. For sale

Address of Welcome by CoL G. C.
Martin, Delivered Before the Flor Florida
ida Florida State Board of Examiners in
Optemetry at BrooksviUe, Florida,
November 13,
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the
Florida State Board of Examin Examiners
ers Examiners in Optometry:
I desire to emphasize the welcome
to our town which has already been
extended you by Judge Ramsey, and
assure you that I have seen both the
mayor and the marshal, and have se secured
cured secured the freedom of the city from
the center 'ol the earth to the sky. It
is all yours.
It is not my purpose to make you
a speech, I seldom make, speeches,
but I do often talk to the courts and
juries. I have often been accused of
making political speeches, yet I as assure
sure assure you that these youthful indis indiscretions
cretions indiscretions will be forgiven and be for forgotten
gotten forgotten in the passing unrelenting

years. JBut there is one thought I
wish to impress upon you gentlemen
as the representatives of a great and
progressive profession: The profes

sion of optometry is essentially a

modern profession. Its history cov covers
ers covers perhaps less than a third of a
century and that history is a record

of the solution of many problems

and the achievement of great success
in a noble work.

All other sciences have been your
handmaidens in the solution of these
problems and the achievement of
this success. I can remember in the

few fleeting years which I have lived

when the grandfather, the son, the

grandson used indiscriminately the
same pair of spectacles, and when
not able to see through them, they
either looked over them or under
them. But the day of guess work

and loose fitting glasses is, happily,
numbered with the things that were.
The optician is now enabled by the
use of the modern and improved in instruments
struments instruments to measure the eye and
locate its defects with mathematical
accuracy known to no other depart department
ment department of the healing art; and with
the same accuracy the optometrist
can supplement the defects .and ad administer
minister administer to the wants and relieve
those who suffer from defective vis vision.
ion. vision. I desire to say to you, and through
you to the members of your profes profession,
sion, profession, of which you are honored
members, that there is no profession,
no, not even my own, that adds so
much to the sum total of human hap

piness as your profession does. Clear

vision is essential to human happi

ness, and the eye is the most service serviceable
able serviceable of any of the five senses. It of

ten falls to my lot as a prosessional

man to bring suits to recover the

possession of real estate and proper

ty, but I opine my clients would take

small pleasure in their possessions
if they were denied the privilege of

seeing them. Looking alter the
welfare of the eye is your business,
your profession, the science of opto

metry is truly the most important

branch of the healing art.

To young gentlemen who are here

to be examined by this board of ex

aminers touching your qualifications
to pracitce this profession, I will say
that I desire- to congratulate you on

your choice of profession. But I also
want to say to you that if you think
you have found an easy snap, a near
cut, or a sinecure, then you are bad badly
ly badly mistaken. No professional man
lives up to his opportunities and the
obligations of his profession will

ever find easy sailing. If you are
not willing to work, honestly, dili diligently,
gently, diligently, assidiouslj- in the solution of
the many problems which will con confront
front confront you in your chosen profession,
then you had better retire from it at
once, and enter some line of endeav endeavor
or endeavor which will be less exacting in its
demands. I want to say further to
you. that should you enter any other
profession and hug the delusion that
you have found a soft snap, you will
soon, very soon, awake to the reali realisation
sation realisation of the fact that you are either
a failure or a fool.
Gentlemen, there is a great field of
human endeavor and scientific ach achievement

invites and asks for your best ener

gies. May you succeed, and may you
do more than succeed, may you de deserve

Mr. President, BrooksviUe is yours
from the center of the earth to the
