HEAVY STORM OF HAIL

Swept Across Northern Marion Coun-

tv Today, Doing Great
Damage
News has just reached the city
that a terrific hail storm passed over
the section of Marion county from a
point east of Sparr westward to
Fairfield.
Mr. Chandler Yonge of Anthony,
informs a Star reporter that a tele telephone
phone telephone message had been received at
that place from Sparr asking that all
the plants that farmers had on hand
be reserved for planters at Sparr, as
their entire crop in many instances
had been wiped out by hail.
Mr. G. G. Maynard, who came
down from Lowell on the 3 o'clock
A. C. L. train, says that the damage
In the vicinity of Lowell will run
into large figures. In this section
there are hundreds of acres planted

to melons, cantaloupes, tomatoes,
beans, etc., a greater portion of
which we understand was totally

ruined by today's hail storm.

Mr. Maynard says that tomato

plants that yesterday were looking

fine and had reached a height of ten

to twelve inches, were today abso

lutely ruined and the ground had
the appearance of not having been
planted. He says that in many
places the hail laid on the ground

over two inches thick and the hail

stones were exceptionally large.

The Star has endeavored to get

more detailed information of the

storm's devastation, but telephone

connections with the storm zone

seem to have been cut off. The rail railroad
road railroad telegraph wires were also out

of commission.

The sweep of the storm seems to
have varied in width as it crossed

from the eastern to the western part

of the county from several hundred
yards to over a mile.
It is reported that many trees
block the road between Lowell and
Martin, having been twisted from
their trunks like reeds by the fierce

winds which accompanied the hail.

Mr, S. F. Rou, who came in from

his place near Reddick, says that the
storm cut a swath about two miles
in width across country, "this side of

Reddick. The big farms of Meffert

and Howell & Chambliss seem to

tve suffered considerably. The

added to twelve at the previous

thirty-six. Messrs. J. J. Gerig, F.

Mr. George MacKay made some
pertinent remarks on the recent rate
meeting in Ocala .and. the lessons to
be drawn therefrom. He &d-kre
litv as well as other interior points
must refuse to remain domineered
by th-2 railroads and seaports and
continue to work steadily for just
rates.
Mr. Rooney made a brief speech
along the same line, both addresses
meeting unanimous approval.
Marion Wants to Know
. Mr. Rooney mentioned another
very important matter. That was
that it is the right of Ocala and Ma Marion
rion Marion county to know how Mr. Ter Terrell
rell Terrell and the candidates for repre representative
sentative representative stand on the subject of
county division, with which we are
threatened. The board will probably
call on these gentlemen to express
their sentiments very soon.
With one or two other matters
considered, the meeting adjourned.
Mr. Meffert, who is a very kind kind-hearted
hearted kind-hearted man, noticing that two of
the members referred to the water water-cooler
cooler water-cooler during, the meeting, and
arguing from that that they were
broke, and not knowing how many
more might be in the same fix, took
the entire membership across the
street to Gerig's soda fountain; and
while the attendance was not so
large as at other times, there was
enough to make, a big hole in a $5
bill.
FASI FREIGHT
FOR THE FARMERS
Marion County Hoard of Trade is
Working to Hush Produce to
the Markets
The Marion County Board of
Trade, thru Secretary Rooney, who
is a veteran railroad man, is work working
ing working to help the farmers of all this
section to rush their produce to the
northern markets by fast freight,
and has secured promise of coopera cooperation
tion cooperation from the transportation lines.
The plan is to send out notices
and blanks to the farmers at once,
the blanks to be filled and turned in
as fast as possible to the nearest
railroad agents, so the roads will be
able to estimate on the supply of
cars. Cars will be scattered along
the line at the needed points, pick picked
ed picked up by the fast freights and
hustled north. The lines our Board
cf Trade is working on are by the
Seaboard from Wild wood to Waldo;
an 3 by the Atlantic Coast Line
irom Webster to Gainesville, all
the cars to center at Jacksonville,
there to be rushed in solid trains to
:he north. This plan will immense immensely

it is to their interest to cooperate
with it.

re t

citizens, while in the council ties us
up with a contract, the benefit will
go to tne favored few who are given
the same. The most recent proof
of the practicability of drawing elec electricity
tricity electricity direct from the air to ma machinery
chinery machinery is set forth in the following
special to the New York Times:
London, Monday, April 6. Ac According
cording According to the Madrid correspondent
of the Daily Telegraph, an experi experiment
ment experiment has just been carried out at
Pozuelo, near Madrid, which dem demonstrates
onstrates demonstrates the possibility of extract extracting'
ing' extracting' electricty from the atmosphere
for commercial purposes.
Jose Yglesias, who recently caused
the explosion of dynamite mines by
means of infra-red rays, on Saturday
succeeded in drawing electricity from
the air by antennae, mounted in pairs
on a wooden tower, thirty-three feet
high, erected on a high hill.

His apparatus received the elec-

at a pressure of 6,000 volts,
was transformed down to 150

The work

supplying power was an aft

thought, and the charter has neer

been changed to allow it. The dif difference
ference difference of course is only technical,
but some, of the few who are wise
on the subject are fearful that some
interested person might take out an
injunction against the city plant
supplying anything but light, accord according
ing according to the strict interpretation of the
charter. As probably half the ma machinery
chinery machinery in the city is run by elec electricity,
tricity, electricity, such an injunction would
paralyze Ocala.
The Star doesn't think any citi citizen
zen citizen of our town would commit such
a contemptible action, and is sure
that anyone who did would receive
in full measure the scorn due a pub public
lic public enemy from the people he injur injured;
ed; injured; but it has taken the trouble to
consult some of the best lawyers in
the city on the subject, and they
concur in saying that such an un unreasonable
reasonable unreasonable injunction would be such
a flagrant breach of equity that there
is no prospect that it would be grant granted
ed granted by any but a very ignorant or a
very corrupt, judge, and the Star
doesn't think there are any such in
this territory. Such an injunction
would not only paralyze industry,
but, as in the case of the hospital,
it might cost human life.
All of which leads up to the sub subject
ject subject set forth in the headline, which
is something scientists have been
working on for years, and are stead steadily
ily steadily drawing nearer to. That elec electricity
tricity electricity is in the atmosphere was
known long before the fluid was put
to any practical use, and the only
difficulty is to transmit it directly to
machinery something that has been
accomplished to a limited extent al already,
ready, already, and is certain to be put In
practical use before long.
Now, the point is this: As long as
we keep our own plant, not only it is
a valuable asset and a safeguard
against monopoly, but all improve improvements
ments improvements in electricity will come to the
city and be directly shared in by the

experiments

tricity
which

volts. Ffteen electric lamps in a

house COO yards away were easily

lighted and maintained at full pres pressure
sure pressure during a pre onged test.
The exper;nental apparatus of
Senor Yglesi.-s is very simple in
character, the whole having been
constructed inside a fortnight. The

will be continued, with

the full

capacity of the installation.
Senor Yglesias .says he can obtain
directly from the atmosphere enor enormous
mous enormous quantities of electricity at will,
according to the arrangement of the
installation.
Among the persons who witnessed
the experiments were Count Maceda
and others in the immediate entour entourage
age entourage of King Alfonso, who were spec specially
ially specially sent by the mjnarch to watch
the tests.

One of the improvements that the
Star earnestly desires to see made
in Ocala is a public swimming pool.
Public gymnasiums with baths

and swimming pools attached are
becoming features of all up to date
cities. While Ocala is hardly able
to instal the gymnasium and baths
yet awhile, the swimming pool is
within our reach, or soon will be.

It is not necessary to be very elab

orate in the beginning. A good, big

pool 100 feet long by thirty wide,
with a high fence around it, and a
Coren dressing rooms, would fill the
bill until a more substantial struc struc-ture
ture struc-ture could be erected.
The Star doesn't think the use of
such a pool should be free, at first.
A small fee of 5 cents an hour should
be exacted, the money to go on the
pay of the custodian, who would
keep the place in order, and control
unruly boys if it was necessary.
Such a bathing place would be a
godsend to the boys of Ocala, scores

of whom go to Silver springs every
week in warm weather to enjoy a
swim.
" A swimming pool in town would

give to hundreds what is now acces

sible to perhaps a tenth as many. It
would be the naean3 of teaching the
necessary art of swimming to hun hundreds
dreds hundreds who never havi a chance to

learn now; it would a.1.! immensely
to the health and comfort of the

boys and go a long way toward keep

ing some of them out of .mischief.

Xor would the benefit of a swim

ming pool be confined to the boys

There are hundreds of men in the

city who would be only too glad to

use it.

In this elimate, bathing in water

at its natural temperature is agret

able to robust people eight month

in the year; A swimming pool suj

plied from the city waterworks could

easily oe canneetea with a not wa

ter pipe, which would make bathing

a pleasure all the year round.

l ne fetar nas interviewed some
members jfthe council in regard to
a swimmlf g pool and found them

CHAPTER XIV.
A Struggle Underground.
I remained poised, breathless, hud huddled
dled huddled in the dark, hesitating. A dozen
considerations flashed through my
mind, as I swiftly decided what to do.
I could scarcely hope to move back backward
ward backward without noise; nor, if I succeed succeeded,
ed, succeeded, would I be any better off with him
still blocking the passage? There was
nothing for it then but to come to hand
grips. But the fellow, whoever he
might be whether white or Indian
was doubtless armed, while I was
weaponless. To get him right was a
desperate chance, yet a chance which
must be taken. Fortunately I had him
located, his heavy breathing being un
mistakable, and evidence also that the
man remained unaware of my pres presence.
ence. presence. I shifted one foot forward to
get firmer purchase, and then grasped
for him through the darkness. My
hand came in contact with a shoulder;
then gripped a mass of long hair. He
gave vent to a sudden cry, startled, al almost
most almost inhuman in its'wildness, strug struggling
gling struggling backward so quickly my other
hand closed on air. But I held hard to
what I had, dragged off my 'balance,
leeling his fingers after my throat.
There was no room for us to do other otherwise
wise otherwise than claw at each other. After
that first cry neither of us uttered a
sound, but I closed in on him, getting a
stronger grip. He was a man, a white
man, for he wore a rough coat, and his
face was covered with a growth of
straggly, coarse whiskers. Enemy or
friend I could not be sure, nor did I
find opportunity to discover. We both
fought like beasts, resorting to teeth
and nails. He was seemingly not a
large-man, but wiry and muscular. His
very lack of size was an advantage in
that narrow space; besides I was
weakened by loss of blood, and with
every movement my wound hurt.
His one object 'was to wrench him
self loose, but my fortunate grip on
his hair foiled this effort. Yet both
his hands were free, the one, clutching
my throat; but, in those first breath breathless
less breathless seconds, I could not locate the
other. He was lying on his side, with
right arm underneath. Fearful of a
weapon, I let the fellow gouge at my
throat with long ape-like fingers,
while I struggled fiercely to expose the
hidden hand. If it Droved emDtv
knew I could handle the man; that I
possessed the strength to draw him to
me, to crush him Into subjection with
in the vise of my arms. Straining
every muscle I could bring into play,
I succeeded in forcing him over onto
his face. But he was a cat, wiry, full
of tricks. In some manner he twirled
his arm out of my grip. There was a
flash of reddish yellow flame searing
across my eyes, an awful report, like
an explosion in my etunned ears.
vvnere tne bullet went I will never
know, but I saw the man's face leap
out at me from the darkness just an
instant of reflection, as though thrown
against a screen by some flash of light
the unmistakable face of a negro
And his was a hideous visage; the
memory of it lingers with me yet.
Swift as it appeared and vanished In
that burst of flame, I shall never for
get the glare of the man's eyes, the
malignant snarl of the open lips, the
teeth cruel and snag-like, and the yel
lowish-black of his face. It was as if I
held some foul fiend of hell in my grip
Yet startled as I was by this appari
tion, his view of me had no less an ef
fect. Even in that single instant of
revealment, the hate in his eyes
changed to fear, to uncontrollable
panic; his lips gave vent to a wild cry
an exclamation in mongrel French
and, before I could stiffen in resistance
or recover from my own shock, the fel
low flung his pistol at me, and jerked
tree! The flying weapon tore a gash
in my scalp, but his haste and fear
proved his own undoing. Half stunned
as I was by the blow, I heard him
spring to his feet, the dull crash of his
head as he struck the hardwood slab
of the low roof, and then the thud of
a body on the tunnel floor, in nis
haste, his desperation, his strange
fright, he had forgotten where he was,
and attempted to spring erect. My
head reeled, the blood from this new
cut trickling down my cheek. The ne negro
gro negro lay motionless in the darkness; I
could not even distinguish his breath breathing,
ing, breathing, although I hestiated, listening in intently,
tently, intently, half fearing some trick.
What had frightened the fellow 30?
What had brought that look of insane
terror into his eyes? It was as if he
stared at a ghost, the very sight of
which had crazed him. I mastered my
own nerves, and crept forward along
the passage, feeling blindly in advance
with one outstretched hand, until it
came in contact with the man's figure.
He lay full length on the tunnel floor,
and I had to find my way over him to
reach his head. It was difficult to
touch him, to place my fingers against
his flesh. The memorv of those kdjltI-

nig, wolfish Hps, Jind that yellow skin,

caused me to shnnk from direct con
tact. Yet I mujst assure myself. I
could net leave fhe man lying there,
possibly to recover consciousness and
do injury. Of on" thing I was assured
this French negro could be no friend.
With clinched Jeeth, I touched the
coarse hair with ipy fingers; then the
forehead. The flesh retained some
warmth; yet thef feeling was not nat natural
ural natural it seemed lifeless. For the in instant
stant instant this appead impossible. Why,
he did it himself, he crashed his own
eliull against the slab. Yet I could not
make the affair seem real, or probable.
And a negro! I had seen few of the
race, but had always been told they
were of thick skull; but if this man
was actually dead, his head must have
been smashed like an egg-shell. And
it was I found the gash a moment
later, the jagged edge of bone. The
fellow was dead, stone dead; there
was no heat to his heart, no throb to
his pulse. Still dazed by the discov discovery,
ery, discovery, I ran my fingers along the roof
overhead, v hoping to find something
there which would account for the
mystery. No flat surface could ever
have jabbed that wound. Ah! I felt
it the sharp point of a stake protrud protruding
ing protruding between the logs. The poor fellow
had struck that with sufficient force to
penetrate the brain.
I conquered my abhorrence, and
searched him, finding tobacco, a knife
an ugly weapon flint and steel, a
few coine, and some powder and rifle
balls. There were no pistol bullets,
and the thought occurred to me that
the smaller weapon probably did not
belong to him; he had appropriated it
elsewhere. I crept about, and across
the body, searching for It in vain, but
I found the rifle, and took time to test
its flint, and load it.
I was still engaged at this task.
blindly feeling about in the dark for
everything needed, and always con
scious of that dead body beside me,
when I suddenly detected smoke not
the puff of powder which still clung to
the passage, but the acrid, pungent
odor of burning wood. Even as I be
gan to breathe the fumes they in increased
creased increased in intensity; the narrow tun
nel filling rapidly with the smoke
waves, and setting me to coughing. I
realized at once what had happened.
Mademoiselle's word of warning com
ing back to mind-they were burning
the cabin, and through some orifice
the emoke was being swept down into
this underground passage. If there
were no outlet, no way by which It
could escape again to the open air, I
must die there in that black hole,
choked and suffocated. I might lie
there forever beside this hideous ne
gro; lie there until our bones rotted,
and we also became earth. The hor-
ror of the thought brought me to my
"Now Push Yourself Down, Monsieurl

knees. Already the air was stifling,
my lungs laboring heavily for breath
ae the smoke clouds filled the passage.
Only as I bent my nostrils close
against the earthern floor could I find
life-giving air.
Even in my terror I clung to the ne negro's
gro's negro's rifle desperately. The entrance
leading forth into the cave-cellar must
be closed, or the smoke cloud would
never be so dense and suffocating. To
open it might require strength, the
blows of the gun stock. If I retained
power to burst my way through I must
hurry. Already I felt my head reel
dizzily, my open lips gulping for air.
I crept forward recklessly in the dark,
bruising my body against the sides of
the tunnel, actually feeling the thick thickening
ening thickening smoke swirl about me in dense
clouds. I gasped for breath, and drew
a bit of cloth about nose and mouth in
slight protection. I was panic-stricken,
overcome by sudden horror, yet
within ccniDelled me to
struggle on. Suddenly I came to a body
iPTwthwise of the passage, the
head to the south. This new discovery
was a shock, yet seemed to affect me
littje. I was too intent on my own es escape
cape escape to be halted by a dead man; to
even think what it meant, or how the
fellow came to be there. To me, at
that instant, he was but an obstacle,
blocking my progress.
I crawled over him, as though he
was no more than a stone in the path,
yet as one hand came down in the
dark on the upturned face, I experi experienced

warm, the man lived. Barely had my
numbed mind grasped this helplessly,
when my rifle barrel, thrust before me,
struck the end of the passage, the faint
sound of contact signifying wood. Not

head and this barrier which blocked
us from the outside air. Desperate.

own situation, but ako by the memory
of those bodies behind in the dark tun tunnel,

small space, and fumbled madly about
for some latch. The surface was of

for what might be a handle in the mid middle,

I pulled at this in vain; then
pushed with my shoulder against the
oak, but the wood held firm. Weak as
I was, and in so crumpled a position, I
could bring to bear but small strength.
To batter the door dowi was the only
hope left; no matter what noise re-

suited, or the possibility of capture by
the savages, I could not lie there and
choke to death in that place of horror.
Better any danger than such a fate. I
drew back and struck, the power of
fear giving strength to my arms. Again
and again I drove the iron-bound rifle
stock against the hard oak. I left the
center and attacked the sides, feeling
the wood give slightly. Encouraged
by this I redoubled my efforts, central centralizing
