Meantime, the army of General
Taylor was at Saltillo, and in the
last months of 1846 was weakened
by the withdrawal of several regi
ments, which were sent to the army
with which General Scott was pre
paring to invade "Mexico. It is stated
that this withdrawal was made by
politicians opposed to Taylor, in
hope of keeping him from winnin
any more victories.
- If this was their intention, they
signally failed, for on February 23,
1847, at Buena Vista, Taylor with
4000 men fought and defeated a
Mexican army estimated at 20,000.
This estimate may be too high, but
it is certain that the Mexican force
was greatly superior, and the Mexi Mexicans

American loss was 746, and that of

I do not believe that such owner ownership

With reference to electric power
for all city purposes (he city had
better avoid all foreign alliances
and entanglements. The electric
light department is now and ha3
been for some time, paying the city
profit over and above all expenses
incident to its operation. In nearly
every report of the city clerk we see
that a good round sum is transferred
from the electric light fund to other
departments, showing that that de department

self itself but contributing largely to the
up-keep of the other departments of
the city expenses. If with the plant
we now have making this excellent
showing, would it not be far, wiser
to increase the power, if need be, to
meet the growing demands of the
city, than to loosen the grip of the
city from a known paying proposi proposition

reasonable to expect a proportionate
Increase of the income from the in increased
creased increased demand; and the logic of it
is, that if the present income meets
all the expenses of operating and
repairs, besides paying a handsome
bonus into the city treasury, then
the increased income derived from
increased demand, would meet the
expenses of increasing the power of
the city plant and still be a source of
much profit to the city;-and at the
same time save the city plant from
toppling into a junk-pile at much
loss to the city. I have heard no one
complaining of the electric lights as
now supplied by the city. Some Sometimes
times Sometimes at long intervals, it is true
that something happens that will
throw the city or a part of it, into
sudden darkness, but that is not
peculiar to Ocala. It is so wherever
electric lights are used and no mat matter

supplied. And if the current is sup supplied

current is above ground, then every
brisk wind and every thunder storm
that passes is liable to throw the
city in utter darkness, and for how
long no one can tell.
St. Paul said: "Prove all things,
and hold fast to that which is good."
We have proven that municipal
ownership ,of the electric light plant
of Ocala is a good thing and it .be .behooves

two enterprises in good trim and in
a short, time the income derived
from them will relieve to a large
extent the trouble the city council
is now having with the assessment
of property and levying the tax. It
is all right enough for property to
be assessed at approximately its
real value and reduce the millage,
but after all thatv does not reduce
the amount the taxpayers contribute
to the tax-gatherer. If the prop property

and a decreased total to the poor

that the tax books show a much
greater disparity between the real
and actual value of the property of

small means. So that an .appraise .appraisement

the real question is, even with all
this done and the millage placed a3
low as it can be, to raise the neces necessary

becoming burdensome to our people?
Burdensome taxation drives out and
keeps out capital. One of the first
questions asked by prospective in investors

and must necessarily inquire into all

people who own houses to rent must
consider-these items of expense and
fix their rentals at figures which
will realize a reasonable Interest oh

that many- good citizens of small
means are kept out of the cityk and
some who could and would build
houses to rent do not because, they
realize the difllculty of getting de desirable

So it seems to me that the great
question for our city fathers to con consider

our whole people without retrogres retrogression,

at least would be a retrogression
and the shackling of- the hands of

Looks to me like .Uncle Remus

suppose each member, of the city

Oldham and his Kentucky militia. He
was of fighting blood, if his face spoke
truth, and his command was stationed
where they would feel the first shock
of attack whenever it came.
Oldham received me gladly,.- and
about the fire that night I told of my
reception by St. Clair.
"Well, I warned yer. Hay ward," the
colonel commented, chuckling. "I
know the bullet-headed old fool. I
reckon he'll know more about Injuns
in a day or two. Told yer he had his
scouts out, did he? Why, man, there
isnt one of 'em been ten miles from
the column since we began this march;
isn't that so, captain? The old cock
doesn't know tonight what's goin on

his arms. "And so, gentlemen, we
march for the Miami towns in the
morning. Old Cock-a-doodle-doo says
eo. I'll wager a year's pay we never
get there. What! no takers? Well,
I'm going to bed.'
Why should I attempt to describe
that drear battle onthe east fork of
the Wabash? Many another has done
It already, yet few tell the story as I
We were up at dawn, but for no
purpose, so far as I could see, unless
it was to idle through a leisurely
breakfast. -1 had finished mine, and
was smoking, cuddled close to the fire,
when the storm broke. Our outposts
could not have been a hundred yards
in advance, or else they ran without
firing a shot, for the red devils burst
on us without slightest warning. I
heard a hoarse shout of alarm, then
whoops and yells, such as would strike
terror to the bravest. I was on my
feet, gripping my gun in an instant.
I saw Oldham leap forward, roaring
out an order then they came, pouring
out of the woods into the open, a mass
of shrieking demons, half obscured in
smoke, their rifles spitting fire. The
man beside me went down in a heap;
Oldham flung up his arms and toppled
over; I saw men stare, then turn and
run, peering back over their shoulders
with eyes full of horror. I threw up
my rifle and fired; sprang back, racing
for a tree, loading as I ran. Men
were eveiywhere, a frightened, scream screaming
ing screaming mob. I saw officers strike them
with their swords, cursing them as
cowards. But nothing could stop the
panic; they fought to get away, they
struck with clinched fists, they bat
tered a path for themselves with
clubbed muskets; they became fiends
from terror, every semblance of men
lost. God! may I never see such a
sight again! My hand trembles as I
write of it.
Into that terror-stricken, fleeing mob
the naked warriors came, hacking with
tomahawks, slashing with knives, bat battering
tering battering with clubbed guns. The snow
was red with blood,' covered with dead
bodies. It was massacre. I know not
how I got out of it, but I fought back
from tree to tree, firing as I halted,
loading as I ran. There were others
with me, cool-headed fellows, ana we
held the painted demons back until
a 'hundred of us, or more, gained the
opening by the river, where the regu
lars and artillery were. But the sav savage
age savage uuiues, luiunaiea oy victory,
drunk with slaughter, were at our very
heels. They lined the edge of the
woods and poured in deadly volleys.
There was no sound now, no yelling
only the incessant rattle of firearms,
as they crept from log to log, and
tree to tree, slowJy drawing closer.
They filed off to either 6lde ana
hemmed us in, the river alone protect protecting
ing protecting our rear. Through the clouds of
smoke we caught glimpses of their
flitting figures, distorted, horrible, of
faces striped black and red, of waving
feathers, and brandishing arms. Never
before or since have I seen Indians
fight as they did that day rushing to
the charge, leaping straight at us
through the smoke, and firing with
deadly aim into our very faces. They
shot us down with no rest, no cessa
tion, no time in which to breathe.
Twice they took the guns, swarming
forward with a fierce rush that flung
us back, and crushed the gunners un
der foot. But they were in the open
now, and we could see; with bayonets
and clubbed rifles we charged home,
driving them back to the woods. There
they held us, while from every hollow
and grass patch, every tree and fallen
log, their rifles spat fire. The bands
of my gun flew off, and I picked up
another; I was out of powder and ball
and took them from a dead body. The
dead lay everywhere, alone, in heaps;
cries of. the wounded rose above the
am. we cnargea over tne ooaies,
crunching them under foot, seeking
to reach our invisible foes. They
would not stand, would not meet us.
Helpless, bleeding, dying, confused by
many orders, we fell back, yet still
retained line, and fronted that blaz blazing
ing blazing wood. Frightened, panic-stricken
men were everywhere, running and
shrieking in terror, seeking vainly for
some means of escape from the savage
cordon. Indians crept forward under
the smoke to scalp and mutilate the
dead and dying. Horses from the ar artillery

charged wildly about, trampling living
