may have been lying. And he may

ia that Villa has sense enough to
. know that it is best for the consti constitutionalists

In the difficulty with the United

of the Confederate Reunion Press
Club for sending out so much miser miserable
able miserable stuff about Jacksonville, with a
little reunion matter thrown In to
give It tone. As we put in above
three years in the Confederate army,
we think we have a right to say any anything
thing anything reasonable about the action of
the so-called reunion committee. As
to our using few headlines in this
paper, the T.-U. man is right, but
misinterprets the cause. That paper,
instead of giving its readers reading
matter, prints a lot of 72, 60, 48, 36

AM proud enough of the record which the FLORIDA TITLE & ABSTRACT COM COMPANY
PANY COMPANY has made during the past two years to be willing to assume that you are
fairly well acquainted with te company tnd Us record. If you are not, then ask the
hanks, attorney nd big land owners of the County as to its work and reputation.

To develop its business possibilities to a greater degree requires a larger capital
than it now has, and to provide for such development the FLORIDA TITLE & ABSTRACT
CORrORATION has been formed with greater and broadSr powers and a .capital of
$50,000.00 (one-half of the total capitalization) as a Preferred 8 per cent. Cumulative stock
and will share in the further profits of the business until it may be paid 12 per cent, in
any one year.
The new Company will succeed to the old Company's plant, business and assets of
every character and every dollar of its worth will be pledged to secure the safety of the
stockholders of shares of its Preferred stock, and the annual 8 per cent, dividend accruing
thereon."
In disposing of the $5u,vuu.uu Preferred Capital Stock, it is my desire to sell at least
one-fourth to Marion County investors HOME PEOPLE who have a knowledge of and
faith in local conditions, the pecuniary profits as can be demonstrated by our books, have
been thus far satisfactory and may be considerably enhanced by increased capital '"stock in
order to extend the business beyond its present limits.
I am so certain of financial success for all investors that I am content to take my own
personal profits from the earnings to accrue on the Common Stock of the corporation, after
the preferred share holders have been secured their profits, as above outlined.
The support thus furnished by our home people in addition to the thoroughness,
promptness and reliability of our work, as evidenced byapproval of local bankers and at attorneys,
torneys, attorneys, as well a3 by big land owners of the County and State, will enable me to command
sufficient funds and control sufficient business, from within and without Marion County, to
make the Florida Title & Abstract Corporation, a truly State-wide, permanent and profit profitable
able profitable institution.
Your pledge to any portion of the Preferred Stock subscription made promptly, will
be appreciated. t
Youry very truly,

Secretary Rooney read his report
of the state good roads meeting in
Gainesville, which report follows.
Report on Good Roads Meeting

roads meeting of the state at Gaines Gainesville
ville Gainesville April 910th. Presented for
membership names of H .C. Jones,
M. J. Rcess, R. R. Carroll, Fred R.
Hocker and myself, with member membership
ship membership fees of one dollar each. Many
interesting topics were discussed.
The main question is to get legisla legislation
tion legislation enacted favorable to a general
plan of good roads throughout the
state. yhe legislative committee
has this in hand and will present at
next legislature a plain bill along
common sense' lines. Several im important
portant important resolutions were presented,
read and adopted, which were pre prepared
pared prepared by Marion's delegates. The
general outline of present roads with
connecting links which will become
the official map of good roads was
presented by committee of F. O. Mil Miller,
ler, Miller, Fred F. Smith and J. D. Rooney,
who were named as a permanent
committee for 1914 to cooperate with
legislative committee and see these
roads were recognized as the 'official
good roads to be first taken care of
in whatever plan or plans or legisla legislation
tion legislation may be enacted. In this Ocala
is placed on route Jacksonville to
Tampa and St. Petersburg, as coming
via Gainesville and Mcintosh present

from Miami to Quebec highway from
St. Augustine, Palatka to Ocala;
from Orlando thru Eustis, Tavares,

Leesburg to Ocala; from Daytona via

city the geographical center of the

state. This committee connected tin

something like 2000 or more miles

of road in 50, 60 and 100-mile loops

of this extended trip thru our state

and yet be on good road the entire

Your delegate was honored by be being

any movement.
On motion of Mr. Meffert, the sec secretary
retary secretary was instructed to send to the
Interstate Commerce Commission at
Washington, a vigorous protest on
the proposed raise in all freights of

i per cent, by all railroads of the
country. Also that he ask all other
commercial bodies in the state to-do
likewise.
Secretary Rooney introduced the
following resolution which he had
drawn, protesting against the new
charge the railroads of the state pro propose
pose propose to put into effect in a short
time, which, after some discusssion
was passed unanimously.
Against the Spotting Charge

" Whereas, the policy has obtained
for many years for the railways of
the country to encourage the build building
ing building of spur tracks and sidings for
industries;
Whereas, All rates effective have

full service, which includes the fur furnishing
nishing furnishing cf cars, proper place to load,
the conveyance of the car and its
terminal delivery. Where there are
not spur tracks, present rates include
placing at public team or dray tracks
at destination accessible for unload unloading;'
ing;' unloading;' Wheeras, We note that there is
being proposed a spotting charge on
private spurs, which is not in line
with former policies. Consider the
advantages to the carrier these spur
tracks assure, both on in-bound and
out-bound business. It also increases
the terminal facilities of carriers at
practically no expense to themselves

and saves them interest, taxes, in

surance and maintenance, etc.. be

sides reducing their liability; there

fore be it
Resolved, We wish to register our

strongest protest against such action,

which is not equitable or fair. The
heretofore conditions have enabled
carriers to develop their traffic
enormously with but little expense
to them. We feel this would impose
an unjust and extra expense on our
business interests and industries and
want to go on record as opposed to
this charge and urge that same is
not made effective.
Resolved, A copy of these resolu resolutions
tions resolutions be sent to the different boards
of trade, chambers of commerce, bus business
iness business men's leagues and all other or

ganizations interested ; also to our
representatives in the Senate and
House and the Interstate Commerce
Commission, i' our irailroad commis commission

by whereby a strong concert of action may
succeed in overcoming this addition additional

The secretary read a list of mem members
bers members who for some reason or other
had declined to pay their dues or
longer be members of the board.
Central Business College May be
Secured
Mr. Rooney stated that Pror.
Land, proprietor of the Ocala Busi Business
ness Business College, was figuring on mov moving
ing moving his central college from Palatka
to Ocala, and instead of maintaining
a chain of business colleges over the
state, as he first intended when he
came here, to have one large central
college in Ocala. That he would do
this at once or proceed to build on
a lot he owned in Palatka and be become
come become a fixture there, maintaining a
branch in Ocala. The secretary also
stated that the people of St. Augus Augustine
tine Augustine had offered the college. many in inducements
ducements inducements to go there, but that thk
location was undesirable. The Palatka
college now has 110 pupils, most of
whom would come here, if the col college
lege college was moved. The college has op options
tions options on two places to be used as
dormitories for the pupils, so that
rooms and board can be had at a
figure that will enable the young
people to come here from all over
the state and attend the college.
That while only open less than a
month in Ocala, the college has over.
30 pupils and the business men who
have visited the school cannot say
too much in its praise. Mr. Rooney
explained what the centralization in
Ocala of Prof. Land's college would
mean and what it could be built up
to. If Ocala was interested in the
college sufficiently we could help to
the extent of paying for the bring bringing
ing bringing of the equipment from Palatka
to Ocala and installing the same
here, probably $300 or $325. All
agreed that it was a good thing and
we could not afford to let it go by,
and after some discussion, Mr. Land
was sent for, and explained more ful fully
ly fully what he was doing and expected to
do, and answered many questions
that were asked him. Methods of
raising the money were discussed and
finally it was decided to have a com committee
mittee committee of three canvass the business
men of the city this morning and
take subscriptions for the fund. Mr.

Land will move his college to Ocala
on May 1st, if It Is done.

The president appointed on the

committee Secretary Rooney, Mr. B.
H. Seymour and the Star reporter.
The board adjourned at 10 o'clock.

On motion of Mr. J. M. Meffert, a

resolution was adopted unanimous

ly, approving of and encouraging the

city council in the publication of the

recent report of the auditing com

pany of the city's affairs, which re

published at an early date, and stat

OCALA EVENING STAR. SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 1914

IS FENOLE

A HOUSE HOLD
NECESSITY
The question can best be answer answer-d
d answer-d by one of the thousands of house

wives In Ocala and elsewhere who
have been using Fenole exclusively
as an insecticide and disinfectant
in their homes. They have found

ltto be the most economical, safe.

effective and convenient prepara

tion they have ever used
Fenole is economical to use, be because
cause because distributed as it is with a
spray pump there, is absolutely no

waste; it goes farther and kills
more insects to the gallonrthan any
other preparation; On h market.

It is safe to use anywhere and
everywhere; insects killed: with
Fenole will not lie around as a

menace to the lives of your pets or

i chickens, it does its work quickly
and then evaporates immediately.

It can be sprayed all over the fur

niture, carpets and clothing and

will neither stain or- injure the

most delicate fabric. Fenole is
very effective in Its work. You
cannot only. kill all the insects in
sight, but the fine. vapor penetrates

the smallest crack and crevices, de

stroying the nests and eggs com

pletely. It is already to use; you
can "shoot" the troublesome pests

on sight or suspicion, without hes

itation or preparation.!

'As a disinfectant, Fenole is in

valuable. The fine vapor from the
sprayer searches out and kills

germs and microbes In the air, on

the floor and wall; Its use around
the kitchen sink, in the toilet,
around the garbage can, etc, will

immediately dissipate odors and

germs and will quickly evaporate,

leaving everything cleanly and

odorless.

Sometimes a person buying Fe

nole for the first time will ask: Is

it dangerous to breathe the -vapor

or odor of Fenole in one's lungs!

The answer is: NO, POSITIVELY

NO! Its powerful antiseptic com composition
position composition makes- It absolutely bene

ficial to breathe. In fact, the free
use of Fenole around the house will

go a long way toward prevention

of contageous diseases, especially
those which affect the throat and

lungs.

We repeat: Use Fenole freely.

Use It according to directions. You

will discover a thousand and one
uses for it, and be more than pleas

ed with the good results obtained.

You will then agree with thousands
of others that FENOLE IS A

HOUSEHOLD NECESSITY.

Cut out this ad and take It to

your nearest dealer and get a can

of Fenole and sprayer and protect
your family and home from the
various insects that are a constant

pest and menace to health of the
family, insects are disease carriers
and a little Fenole used in time

may save you a lot of money to say

nothing of the intense suffering
caused by disease they carry; now
don't wait until your home is over overrun
run overrun with insects; you save time and

money by beginning early. Don't

let any dealer palm off some thins

else they say is just as good, be

cause they make more profit. Re

fuse substitutes and insist on the

genuine FENOLE.

and demonstrated the earnestness of

And just think of it. 312 children en
rolled at the primary school with a
total enrollment of 630 in both
schools.
The entertainment in the 3d grade
rOom, under 'Miss Maud Roach ford
as teacher, exhibited a degree of
proficiency commendable for both
teacher and pupils. This exhibition
is proof that our school board has
made wise selections in those chosen
to mould and train the minds and
character of our children.
One of the noblest vocations today
is that of the teacher; their hard
work is what is b rough forth in the
lives and character of our boys and
girls upon whom the future of our
nation will rest. Do we as parents
co-share this great responsibility as
we should? Are we doing our best
in shaping the home life to co-ordi
nate the influences and help carry
forward the great fundamental basis
and truths taught in the schools?
The teacher's work can be so lighten lightened
ed lightened if we as parents will do our part
in guiding, fructifying What our
teachers are imparting. Think of it.
The many sweet buds, young lives,
now in their tender formation state!
Then let us watch and guard careful carefully
ly carefully the jewels God has placed in our
keeping, and by our earnest en endeavor
deavor endeavor see that these talents are not
hidden, but strengthened and built
upon until they shall shed forth in
the coming annals of time bright
jewels of noble womanhood and

ENLIGHTENMENT ON THE
SUBJECT OF ELECTRICITY
lEdltor Star: In the regular meet meeting
ing meeting of the city council, April 7th,
a resolution Was offered by Mr. E. C.
Bennett and adopted by the council
to invite bids to furnish the city of
Ocala with electric power at switch switchboard.
board. switchboard. Also, in the same meeting,
Mr. Caldwell, superintendent of the
electric light plant," reported that
something had' to be done immdei immdei-ately,
ately, immdei-ately, that they were right up against
it, or words to that effect. The next
day an article appeared in the Star
as follows:
".Will the city council please ad advise
vise advise the tax payers why bids will be
considered from citizens, firms, or
corporations for supplying the city
with electricity? A full explanation
is due the people of Ocala before
the city council 'kills the goose that
lays the golden eggs. Taxpayer."
Up to the present time no explana explanation
tion explanation has been offered to the above
thru the press.
According to the resolution adopt adopted
ed adopted by the council, Mr. M. J. Roess,
chairman of the light and water com committee,
mittee, committee, placed an advertisement in
both papers, the Star and Ocala Ban Banner,
ner, Banner, asking for bids for current, to
be furnished not later than Tues Tuesday,
day, Tuesday, April 21. This was hustling
matters right along and set me to
thinking and could not figure out
wljere the power the city was in such
urgent need of could be coming
from, naturally my mind ran to the
Florida Power Company, but no;
that could not be possible, as I re remembered
membered remembered these gentlemen had pub published
lished published an article in the local papers
in November 19-13, that they had
closed contracts for all power they
had,, and could not consider any
proposition from the city of Ocala
under three years, so thought best
to ask for further explanation thru
the Star as follows:'
"I see that the city council, thru
the chairman of the light and water
committee,4 is inviting bids to fur furnish
nish furnish the city with electric power de delivered
livered delivered at switchboard, city, plant.
This is certainly very interesting, If
not astonishing, to the people and
taxpayers of Ocala; advertising for
bids to furnish electric power when
the city owns a plant and machinery,
and has been producing it at a profit.
Will the council explain .f why it is
necessary to advertise for bids?"
iNo satisfactory explanation has
been furnished so far, excepting the
chairman of light and water commit committee,
tee, committee, in a nice, good-natured way, in
formed me that a certain gentleman
in Ocala was contemplating erecting
a" power plant on the Withlacoochee
rriver and would like to put in a bid
to furnish current to the city. I con consider
sider consider the matter important enough to
call a special meeting of the board of
governors of the Marion County
Board of Trade. A resolution was
adopted opposing the. purchase of
current, and for the council to pur purchase
chase purchase an additional engine, which
would meet all requirements for at
least one year, or until we can ar arrange
range arrange to consolidate the light and
water plants.
.Finally Mr. Robinson's resolution,
offered and adopted at the council
meeting April 21, cannot be objec objectionable
tionable objectionable to the people and will no
doubt await developments patiently.

CAUUAUE MARKET IS STRONGER
The Star is indeed glad to know
that the cabbage market is in bettef
shape. All this week cabbage have
sold at $2 to $2.25 per crate in the;
eastern markets,' which allows a fair;
profit to the shipper. Prior to this
week, the market threatened" to go
all to pieces. Heavy shipments of
cabbage by steamer express from the
Danish West Indies has affected the
market considerably.
The funeral services of Mr. Ray
were held this morning at the resi residence
