OCALA VS PARK
Monday afternoon the earth was
ueiuged with sunbeams; every nook
and corner of Ocala seemed full of
cheer and the sky reflected in its per perfect
fect perfect blue the glories of a perfect
springtime. It was an ideal afternoon
to go gipsyinji, and we joyously an answered
swered answered the call of the wild and hit for
the open road. Two o'clock found us
( mc and myself) at the north section
of Tucawilla street, rambling luxur luxuriously
iously luxuriously through the long soft grass,
down past the""greenhouse, where the
early Easter lilies are opening wide
their waxy cups of fragTance and
beauty, over and through barbed
wire fence near another pretty grass
plot where Freddie Winer's biilygoat
is enjoying his latter days. It was
here we stepped gingerly along, one
eye on the goat and the other busy
sorting out the high places that sur surround
round surround a premature rivulet, up the in incline
cline incline to the. crest of the hill which is
the highest point in the twelve acres
of park that the Ocaia Woman's Club
is interested in at this time. Here
neath the shade of a pretty tree we
joined Mrs. F. G. B. Weihe, Mrs. Wal Walter
ter Walter Hoodr Mr. R. L. Martin, Lieut.
Louis II. Chazal, Mrs. Emily Green
and the park chairman, Mrs. G. T.
Maughs. From this particular hill hilltop
top hilltop magnificent, view was to be had
cf the entire place, which is very at at-tiactive,
tiactive, at-tiactive, and in time -will be one of
the most beautiful spots of the city.
Leaving behind all formality, with
Mrs. Weihe we followed the ways of
the gip3y and our ramble took us past
the old clay pits that are to be moved
by the city at an early date, on by the
cliffs of the "artificial lake" and down
the narrow path where adventures are
seen and met. I gave full sway to my
curiosity and marveled in the beauties
that were new to me. The path led
us on and down the cliffs into the
heart of the 'grotto, where the water
gurgles and sings and the -forest
thereabcut is redolent with the aroma
of springtime. Wild lantannas and
violets intermingled with exquisite
long fronged ferns are growing there
m luxurious abandon, and high over over-bead
bead over-bead the breezes wafted about U3 the
biossoms of the late rebud3 and some
golden yellow 'jessamine. I filled my
chest full of the sweet breath of the
open and followed the footsteps of
my companion through the winding
pathways" to the banks of another
lakelet now almost full of purple
hyacinths and pond willows. In a few
weeks the hyacinths will be a mass of
brilliant, blossoming spikes, and in
time the ladies are to have this and
an adjoining pool, that is thrifty with
the growth of wild Irisis, curbed in.
On we xambled, for it was good to be
there, watching the hills clothe them themselves
selves themselves in their garments of green and
to hear the birds sing. WTithin this
acreage many spring pools are in evK
dene? and on the slope of the hilK
where old "Uncle Junk Johnson" (the
negro caretaker) resides in his cabin,
there is a spring said to be the "finest
water in Ocala" and has been used
for many years successively. The la ladies
dies ladies of the committee have every rea reason
son reason to be proud of the location select selected

rich, flowers and hrub3 respond rap rapidly
idly rapidly to the slightest care. With the
combined strength of the club and
city, if all will join hands in its up upbuilding

dertroy the mongrel of decency, Ocala
in a few years will owe. to the Wom

greeted me each week for nearly 20

Thomas Hughes was a wonderful

"Oh, and you tiave joined the French

Ex-President Taft, before the Na National

introduction of women into politics
would make nodifference, as the wom women
en women of a community would vote as the
men did. I think the ballot would be
good for them and' for the country country-first,
first, country-first, because women, are more sensi sensitive

than the men, and less hampered by
traditions of politics. Second, v the
women need the ballot for protection,
in order that they may meet men en engaged

terms."

Mr. Taft "has sholy" got his polit

The women vote today looms big on
the political horizon 12,500,000

SHOULD FERTILIZERS FOR COM DE REDUCED?

C. A Whittle, Soil Improvement Committee, Atlanta, Ga.

Fertilizers should be applied In kind and, quantity that experience
has taught will bring the largest iroHts to the farmer. No more, no
less.
ProSts in cotton production largely deperd upon two factors; labor
and fertilizers. Both are now high In price.
Cotton requires a large amount of labor, more labor than any other
general field crop. Therefore, when- the cost of labor increases, the
profits of cotton production decrease rapidly and are easily wiped out.
, Because cotton, la so burdened with labor cost. It follows that profits
in producing it depend upon Increasing the yield per acre; It depends
upon it iLore than most other crops. As a matter of fact, a great deal
of the cotton lands of the South are hardly fertile enough to pay the labor
cost of pre during a crop of cotton. Therefor, fertilisers hiTe been depended
upon to give the farmer the only profit, he could expect to get out of 1
producing the crop. It is plain. then,that to cut down ft rtilizer applica applications
tions applications wtuH incan simply cutting down the farmers profits. 1 also seems
to be chi.- that any farmer having any kind of land can not afford to
let high labor ccst sweep away his profits through a failure to usa the
necessary a: .car t of fertilizers.
FcnIUr:r.. aVc high priced, it is true. But, after all. It is not so
much the prx as the profit-producing power of the fertilizers that should
be a guid?. Fcrtil'zers increase yields at the lowest poitle labor cost.

"The American Red Cross work In,

some 9,000 persons have been upon the

actively engaged when the armistice
was signed. An Indication of the pres present

It will continue ;to be so. But the

There Is a reason for American
tardiness in road building. We need
not be utterly downcast when we hear
our highways unfavorably compared
with the fine, smooth roads of Europe.
We must remember that European
highways were hundreds of years in
the making and in periods when roads
were the sole means of transportation,
both civil and military. There were
no railroads, no electric lines, no wire
communication. Road building was
the essence, of commercial life and

Less than a month ago thousands of
men were being killed every day and
hundreds of thousands were exposing
themselves to death. Danger and

A Hot, Spot Chalmers Kntiws
Neither Altitude Nor Weather
ANYONE who has motored much knows
how a change, of altitude even of 600
Y feet affects the average car. And when
the weather changes, even if you never
leave your home town, what a terrible affair it is
to get your motor "running right."
A Hot Spot Chalmers knows neither altitude
nor weather. For the Hot Spot device is proof
against both.
. No matter what the day, no matter where you
arc on the map, the Hot Spot carburizes the gas
into a "dry" vapor from which all the power is
wrung, with amazing ease
It is throbless, f riction!css power, arni on a cold day the engine
runs warm in an instant or on a hot day runs cold Consistently.
For "pulverizing" pis nothing yet has equalled the Chalmers
Hot Spot and forracing it into the .cylinders (a trick that is
highly important), nothing has ever. been made to approach
the Raines-Horn.

Either one of these two 'magnificent devices arc
worth an hour of any man's time. Both of them pro provide,
vide, provide, you a mental feast on modern engineering that
you' 11 'long" remember.
Come see them. They've made the
Chalmers one of the few great cars of the
world.
