There are over a hundred million

WTien we was a boy we read in the
Arabian Nights how the poor but
worthy young man fell in love with
the beauchersome princess, and how
the wicked magician carried said
princess away to his brass castle, and
how the poor young man wandered
around in the tall timber, very sor sorrowful,
rowful, sorrowful, and how he found the magic
hobby horse, and got on the horse but
didn't get anywhere until he found a
peg sticking in the horse's neck, and
pulled it out, and then the horse went

a young man can get mighty tired of
holding a .girl in his lap in less than
nine hours, let alone nine days, so the
story seemed reasonable to us. and

have ridden and yearn to ride again.

forty-mile trip in twenty-five minutes,
and then intending to go back to the
larding field at the Anthony farms,
but found his engine lacking in power
and had to come down in the old open
field just west of the fair grounds.
The other two machines did not start
from Gainesville until this afternoon
Investigation revealed that some
scoundrels had put trash in the oil
tanks of all three machines. Whoever
did this dirty trick deserves a long
term in the penitentiary or lynching
for it might have cost one of the
boys his life.
Preceding Aviator Black about
twenty-four hours came Mr. John
Hammond, the business man of the
circus, preparing for its advent, meet
ing the wholesale dealers of the sue
culent gum, interviewing the news
paper men and preparing the landing
field. Mr. Hammond is a very cour
teous and efficient young man. H
treats everybody nicely, and at once
made friends, among them Messrs. E
C. Beuchler and R. B. Meffert, two
very efficient allies. In spite of the
slight accident to one plane and delay
to the other two, Mr. Hammond waa
rejoiced to deliver consignments of
chewing gum to the dealers on sched
The other two machines, with
Messrs. Elmer Partridge and Pau
Miinor as pilots, arrived Monday aft
ernoon. One found the landing field
at Anthony, and the other did circus
stunts over Ocala. That boy certainly
knows how to handle his machine. In
a few minutes after the explosions o
his engine had been heard, half the
town was out in the yards and
streets, wondering whether he was
having fun or having an accident.
Presently up he went like he had a
date with an angel; then, when al almost
most almost out of sight he turned his nose
down and came like Lucifer falling
from heaven until he seemed about to
hit the tree tops, only to flatten out
and skim like a swallow toward the
landing field nine miles north. This
skilled and daring birdman was Mr.
The writer was one of the interest interested
ed interested spectators, and when he saw the
aviator do that nose dive he said to
himself: "Now, if that boy does that
stunt when I am up with him, won't
my tummy wrap itself around my
backbone so tight that all the doctors
in Ocala won't be able to pull it back
in place?" His feelings along this
line were added to by the misplaced
and wholly unnecessary sympathy oi
a number of friends who had made up
their minds he was going to be killed
and tried to cheer him up by telling
hiw how much they would miss him.
However, we have learned to mask
our feelings and a pair of ninespots
Denina a smiling countenance, so
when Bruce Meffert and Mr. Ham Hammond
mond Hammond in Bruce's car came by for us
we looked more cheerful than many aj
young man on the way to his wedding.
Perhaps we felt that way too.
The party wasn't long in reaching
the landing field. You are never long
going anywhere when Bruce Meffert
drives. Bruce doesn't drive as fast as
he used to. He is county commissioner,
now, and tries to set a good example.
So he always holds his car down to
not more than forty miles an hour
on the rough places on the roads
and its a pretty good road to An Anthony.
thony. Anthony. The landing field is a part of the
Anthony farms, a big field running
west from the Ocala and Citra road,
just this side of Mr. Beuchler's neat
residence. It is being used now as a
pasture and its springy and almost
smooth surface rises in a gentle slope
for nearly half a mile. It is the best
boys and girls gathered around them.
The mechanicians were looking them
over and we found we were to go up
in Pilot Partridge's plane.
Lee Priest, the farmer who made a
community show all by himself and
his wife at the last fair, was in the
crowd, and tried to scare us out of
flying. We think Lee wanted to take
our place at any rate he tried to
whisper something to us tried to
bribe us, probably. But we wouldn't
have taken any sort of a bribe then.
Too many people looking.
The alert and clever young mecha
nician of the plane induced us to swap
our hat for a hood, which our friend
Priest assured us made him think of
the black cap. A pair of goggles
went with it, and just before we pull pulled
ed pulled them down a tall youne man had
us pushed up against the plane and
shot us with a kodak. We knew about
how that picture would look and the
thought inspired us with a fierce re resolve
solve resolve to come down alive, lest such
picture be printed with our obituary.
Then they helped us into the for
ward berth of the ship not so easy a
job, when one is old and stiff and not
so sylphlike as thirty years ago. It
is not a very commodious place the
front stateroom of an air liner. While
in it, your thoughts may wander, but
you can't. We don't believe Bennie
Condon can get into one of them
places at all. We looked around for
life preserver, but reflecting that
the plane would fall at least ten thou
sand feet before we could crawl out
of our snuggery, we refrained from
asking for one. Having previously
obtained two chews of Spearmint and
put them both in our mouth at once
to keep our teeth from chattering,
wo pulled the goggles down and wait waited
ed waited for the procession to start. A few
minutes later we forget and swallow
ed the gum, but our teeth behaved
Now, to tell the truth about it. we
were neither scared nor nervous. We
knew that with thousands of people
going up every day, it was not likely
we wrere going to meet any accident.
This feeling of confidence was added
to by looking at the pilots and their
planes. The men looked exceedingly
competent and seemed to consider go
ing up in the air a very commonplace
proceeding. In fact, Pilot Partridge
looked rather bored. He seemed like
just then he wrould rather have gone
off in a quiet corner and had a long,
cold ice-cream soda and a chat with
hir friends. It was easy to see the
machines were better than the rather
fllimsy planes our airmen at the train
ing camps practiced with, and by the
faults of which more than one gallant
boy came to an untimely death. So
we felt safe and comfortable and
prepared ourself for a novel and
We were not disappointed. The en
gine began to hum, the propeller
whirled and the machine moved down
the field, the mechanician running
alongside. When almost to the fence,
it turned and pointed its nose west,
ard started at a slow gait that in
creased to a rapid run. It jolted very
little over the field. The hum of the
engine increased .to a roar, the slight
bumping ceased, the nose of the plane
tilted and the ground began to drop.
Before we fully realized that we were
flying, we were looking down on a
grove of tall pines which appeared
like so many big weeds. Then the
world turned a quarter-way around
and we were off for Ocala.
The powerful engine throbbed with
an incessant beat that kept the ship
atremble, and a racing river of air
streamed back on either side, but
down in the little cubbyhole every everything
thing everything was snug and comfortable. The
air boat felt as safe as a seaboat and
a whole lot more pleasant to ride in.
We didn t know we were going to
Ocala when we started. We knew we
were up for fifteen or twenty minutes
and somehow we had an idea that the
trip would take in a circle of An
thony, Sparr and other places in the
neighborhood. And looking down we
didn't seem to be going fast. In fact,
we didn't seem going at all. The land landscape
scape landscape was unrolled in front and rolled
back in a very leisurely way. It
seemed moving about three miles an
hour. But the landscape looked like
a map and we would be over a place
we recognized one minute and an another
other another place more than a mile off the
next, so we decided we would have
to arrange a new mental speedometer
by the time we took the next trip.
There was a freight train on the Sea Seaboard,
board, Seaboard, and it seemed to be standing
still. It was some distance ahead
when we noticed it, and then it was
behind, meantime certain points along
the line shifted in a way that made
us think it must be rattling along at
a good, freight-train clip.
The airplane wTas almost as steady
as a church. Sometimes it would drop
just a little; we could feel it give
down something like but more gently J
than an elevator. But oftener it rose.
It reminded us of the time when we
was a little boy, and a farmer we
worked for would pick us up and
throw us across the back of a horse
and send us or rather the horse out
in the woods to drive home the cows.
It was a big horse so big that when
we looked down it was so far to the
ground that we were afraid to fall off.
And he was a proud horse and held
hi? head up, and his head and neck
and flowing mane cut off the view, so
we had to look sideways or down to
where he was carrying us. So
we looked down at the tops of some
of the tallest trees in Marion county
nearly half a mile below us we decided
that we felt more safe and comfy in
the airplane than on the horse.
The roads were long white streak
looked as smooth and solid as a ten ten-million
million ten-million dollar bond issue could make,
them. The side road3 wriggled off in
the woods like so many angleworms.
The wide fields lay as smooth as'
sheets of brown paper. The forests
were clumps of tall grass. The
hcuses were little dollhouses some:
only matchboxes. If we could have
reached down and grabbed one jf them
we could have put it in our pocket.
It caused no dizziness to look down.
I.i fact, there was no fun unless we1
locked down. Nothing above but'
heaven, and no angels on leave of ab absence
sence absence just then. Some should have
been. It was a beautiful day. This
part of the world wore a semi-transparent
fabric of haze, like the hose
some pretty women of good under under-standing
standing under-standing rejoice in. And also cause
their observant he-friends to rejoice.;
And the sun shone thru this semi-!
transparency like but we were try-j
ing to describe the day. And we werej
looking over toward where we thought j
Silver Springs was. and then we look-:
ea oacK and right under us was
O, man! and woman you'll never
know how beautiful your town is
until you look down on it from fifteen j
hundred feet above, the roofs of thej
homes seeming as high as the trees i
around them, the streets shining like
so many silver ribbons, everything
ugly or shabby ironed out by the al altitude
titude altitude and the distance; everything
bright and pretty showing up, so the
town appears a fairy garden where!
nothing uncharming is allowed toi
And if you know the people, and
hink of all the kind hearts and friend friend-y
y friend-y faces there below you, you will
have an almost overpowering impulse
to send a message down to tell them
howr glad you are that you belong
somewhere among them and believe
you are soon going back to them.
The only thing we were sorry for
was that the ship could not hang mo
tionless awhile until we could map out
every well-known spot and visualize
the good people who dwelt near it.
But airplanes must keep on turning
the world in its orbit if they
let the old globe keep still a minute it
will fly up and smash them. And so
this airplane first pushed Ocala back
toward the northeast and then twisted
it around and began pushing it in the
other direction. The wide stretch of
forest and field, Griner Farm, Oak
and Anthony went to join Ocala with
great celerity, and suddenly we were
looking down into the landing field
which we had left such a short time

over the field almost to its former

From the time the plane first moved

The trip to Ocala took eight minutes,
