The most favorable time for

there will not be a large spring crop

The dingy and shabby old armory
has been renovated and spruced up.
It no longer looks like a barn. It
looks like a house dedicated to ser serious,
ious, serious, busy men who like to stop for
an hour or so amid- handsome and
comfortable surroundings -to retell
.the past and discuss the future.
Our armory has never looked so
well as today. It s was originally
built by the county commissioners for
the Ocala Rifles, then a social as well
as a military organization. But the
boys did not have much money, and
before the armory had been built
long the Spanish-American war broke
out. The Rifles went heartily and
cheerfully as far as they were allow allowed
ed allowed to go Tampa and other camps
and paid for their loyalty in hard
work, sickness and great hardship
When the war was over, the company
languished a while, from sheer weari
ness of things military, even as the
later generation does after the late
federalized, the company picked up
somewhat, but it was composed al
most entirely of hardworking men
and boys with little time for social
pleasure, consequently the armory
was never to them a club house it
was only a place to meet for drill and
keep their arms, and became shabby
and more shabby, inside and out, for
the county was too stingy to have it
painted every time paint was needed
In June, 1916, the armory hummed

to go to the border, but it was little
used for over a ear after, until the
company was again called out, Aug.
5, 1917, to train for the great war.
"The armory was arbusy place for six
.weeks, 'but it was a workhouse, re
ceiving no more care than a daily
sweeping out, and when the company
left for Camp Wheeler the armory
was more dingy and shabby than

when the commissioners turned it
over to the legion post, to be used by
it as headquarters until another mil

probably after, as any platoon or
company formed will be certain to be
so closely identified with the legion
that their' work will intermingle.

the city and county last night. The

had been made into a very handsome
club and office room. On the eastern
side was a snug little enclosure with
chair and table for the post com commandant,
mandant, commandant, and the secretary had a
handsome desk and chair to his left.
The room had comfortable chairs and
sofas, a center table and piano. There
were handsome rugs on the newly
painted floor and pictures on. the
walls. One picture was of Company

Next to this room was the billiard
room, also nicely fitted up. The bil
liard table was for this occasion used
as an exhibition stand for souvenirs
of the war, contributed" by various
members and friends. There were
bombs, grenades and shells, ; all "de
natured," swords, bayonets and trench
knives all as good as new, helmets
and many other interesting articles.
, The principal exhibit was a Lewis
machine gun, the favotite weapon of
the British army. There was prob prob-ably
ably prob-ably a piece or two missing from the
mechanism, but it sat up as pert and
looked as efficient and grimly impu impudent

On beyond these two rooms is a
spacious parlor, which was prettily
arranged. Besides the handsomely
carpeted floors and elegant furniture
it was tasceiuuy decorated with flow flowers,
ers, flowers, and an immense cutglass punch
bowl on one of the tables denoted
much refreshment in the near future.
A daintily, clad young lady kept ward

went out for several seconds, and

The big drill room down stairs has
come in for its share of attention,
being thoroughly cleaned and its
walls and ceiling repainted. It was
specially prepared for the evening's
exercises, beautifully decorated with
the national colors, a rostrum erected
at the north end, a piano moved in,
seats provided for the band and the
remainder of the room filled .with
ehairs for the accommodation of the
audience, which soon filled them.
There was a large number present,
for not only was the hall filled, but
scores stood outside. Most of these
were ex-service men, wise old birds,
who stood on the sidewalk or by the
windows, where they could see and
hear and at the same time keep cool
and enjoy their cigarettes.
Shortly after sight o'clock, Post

of the rostrum and in a few well

then the audience arose as the band
rendered the Star Spangled Banner,
Mr. Creson gave a short, but inter

the national anthem.
Splendid solos were sung by Mrs
Hampton, Mrs. Manly and Mr. Lucas,
all of whom were heartily encored.
' Popular and unpopular bugle calls
were effectively played by Mr. H. W.
Tucker. A year ago it would have
been necessary to mount Tuck behind
a rampart of sandbags before he be
gan to toot "I can't get 'em up," but
this time he got by with nothing
thrown at him. He played beautifully
and it is more than likely that the
notes of his bugle went straight to
the hearts of many who had heard
them daily thru a year and a half of
camp and march and battlefield.
Mis Mary Marshall spoke up for
the Woman's Auxiliary, and her talk
was like herself, short but efficient.

NOW IS THE TIME TO JOIN THE -FLORIDA
In a few weeks the marketing season for citrus fruits will be upon us.
Growers who wish to market their fruits co-operatively should join the
Florida Citrus Exchange now.
Scarcity of supplies and shortage of labor make it more than ever
necessary for each local association to know, before the season opens, ap approximately
proximately approximately how much fruit it will have to handle.
Last year the Florida Citrus Exchange sold a great deal more fruit
for the members than in any preceding season of its history and served
them with greater efficiency in realizing the full market value of the
product of their groves..
During the coming season the Exchange will maintain and improve
the high standard of marketing service that has enabled it to so fully
satisfy grower members. Enlarged volume assists the organization to
operate more efficiently and more economically.
If you are not affiliated with the Florida Citrus Exchange, but wish to profit
by its sales service, take steps without delay to become a member. For in information
formation information as to membership, write business manager Florida Citrus Exchange,

Chicago, Au. 31. 'Streeterville,"
in the "Deestrict of Lake Michigan,"
part of Chicago's famous "Gold
Coast," is about to be the scene of
he thousand and first battle of its
history, according to. notice served on
United States Marshal Bradley by
Captain George Wellington Streeter,
80-year old claimant to a $50,000,000
portion of the exclusive Lake Shore
"Cap" Streeter and William H.
Niles, one time "military governor"
and commanding general of the army
of the "deestrict," having notified the
federal authorities that they are
about to agitin try to enforce their
claim that Streeterville is not in any
state in the Union, have invited the
American Legion to assist them and
set the date for the opening of hos hostilities
tilities hostilities s September G. A letter to
the legion posts, a copy of which wa3
also sent to Marshal Bradley, invites
former soldiers to "meet me at the
foot of Superior street in uniform,
armed and carrying a flag, and help
to end by force of arms the treason treasonable
able treasonable acts of judges or stand up
against a wall before a firing squad."
A postscript invites the legionaires
to bring their lunch.
Captain Streeter has been fighting
since 188G to establish his claim to
one of the most valuable sections of
Chicago's lake front. In that year
his steamer, the .Reutan, stranded on
the beach during a storml Captain
Streeter built a breakwater about hi3
stranded boat, 450 feet off shore, and
made it his home. The rapidly shift
ing sands filled in the space between
boat and shore and added 193 acres to
the city's area. To this land Captain
Streeter laid claim, and in the next
quarter of a century battles by the
hundreds were fought in an effort to
On one occasion 500 police besieged
Streeterville. "General" Niles pro proclaimed
claimed proclaimed himself "military governor
of the district of Lake Michigan" and
with 50 men, of his "escort" erected
breastworks surmounted by barbed
wire and stood off the police for sev several

ranks so weakened the defending
force that a lone policeman finally
executed a flank attack and carried
The courts in 1915 ruled that
Streeter had no title to the property
and hig brick castle, which had suc succeeded

wrecked by deputy sheriffs and then
In 1902 Streeter and two friend3
were convicted oi manslaughter in
connection with the death of John S.
Kirks, killed in one of the frequent
assaults on the castle. All were sen

Streeter's claim is based on the
claim that the act creating the state
of Illinois fixed the "meander line"
of the lake as the boundary and that

courts held, however, that Illinois ex extended
