OILWAY EXPERIMENTS
Judging by the looks of the piece

Orange avenue, the method of com compressing
pressing compressing sand into oil is going to be
of great use. The plan is to lay a
coat of oil and then drive a coat of
sand into it with the road roller, then
another coat of oil and another
layer of sand, all crushed together
with the roller, until it is like a long,
thick, rather springy rug. It looks
like it's going to be a success. The
commissioners have bought uptodate
machinery, which will enable them to

era of road improvement in this

CARE NEEDED ABOUT
THE FIRE CRACKERS
All boys like to shoot off firecrack
ers at Christmas or on the fourth of
July, and this writer hasn't forgotten
the days when the pop of a fire firecracker
cracker firecracker was among the sweetest of
sounds. A boy has to use discrimi
nation, however, in shooting fire
crackers in a town, or he will cause
other people loss or involve himself
in trouble. Some of the boys in
Ocala have been careless or even mis
chievous in choosing a place to throw
ci ackers, have annoyed citizens and
put property in danger. This should
be stopped the boys should have
enough sense of good citizenship to
stop it themselves, and if they or
their parents won't or can't stop it,
the police should try. We think the
ordinance should be changed and boys
allowed to shoot their firecrackers on
the public square, and the wide, paved
business streets. 1 The present ordi ordinance
nance ordinance drives the boys into the back
streets or vacant lots, where there is
often inflammable material. When
th existing ordinance Was passed,
the square and principal streets were
constantly traversed by vehicles
drawn by horses, which were fright
ened and often ran away when they
heard a cracker explode. Now, it is
seldom that a horse passes. We are
sorry to add that the trouble in this
respect and some others is increased
by several boys who are rather more
than mischievious. If the police will
look them up and give their fathers
the choice between administering
strap oil to their boys or paying fines
for them, we are sure the trouble will
be ameliorated.
FROGS
Frogs at Waterman's. Did you ever
hear of a haberdasher having educat

Many residents of Ocala are kept
in constant worry by boys shooting at
the squirrels which are numerous in
the city. The shooting has been so
persistent lately that many neonle are
afraid to. let their children go out of
doors,-lest ore be hurt, and even thv
older people stand a chance of being
hit. It is against the city ordinance
to shoot the squirrels: it is also un-
nwiui to snooc wun a eun. air nne
or even slingshot in the city limits
The police should stop this practice
before someone is badly hurt. The
Star, however, sympathizes with boys
who -want to shoot, and suggests that

get range with targets on a stout,
closely-set, board fence, where they
can practice shooting, with no danger
to others and without breaking the
law.

DRAWS NATIONAL DERISION
If Gov. Catts was a normal person,
the flood of derinion he has drawn oil
himself by his threatening letter to
Joe Earman would make him sick. As
it is, we presume- it has the same ef effect
fect effect that a stout, pointed stick has
when it is rubbed vigorously along
the hide of a razorback.
We clip the following from the New!
York Herald of recent date:
One of Captain Eugene A. Mer

mirable. admirable. But Captain Merrill's re
sort to the manly art certainly does
not fall into the category in which
the program of personal vengeance
announced by Governor Sidney J.
Catts of Florida belongs.
Governor Catts was a Baptist min
ister, but resigned from his' clerical
office several years ago. Recently he
has been embroiled in a row with Joe
L. Earman, president of the Florida
state board of health and publisher
cf the Palm Beach Post. This dis
pute resulted in the preparation and
issue by Governor Catts of a strange
open letter, in which he declared he
would descend on Mr. Earman for a
"nnai settlement," because ne was
tired of Mr. Earman's "tyranny, arro
eance and big stick bossing," and
made this specific threat:
"I am not going to let you rule and
boss me at your whim and pleasure.
"I am a man and stand m a man s
place and I do not run away from any
West Palm Beachers when they hang
me in effigy as you did when they
hung you.
"If you publish one more page in
your paper like this last one or bother
me or my business or my children any
more I will go to West Palm Beach
Florida, with my double barrel shot
gun loaded with buckshot and have a
final settlement with you."
When an ex-minister who has been
chosen governor of one of the 'forty 'forty-eight

may arise in Florida's domestic af affairs.
fairs. affairs. A double barrelled shotgun is
a mean weapon to pull on a president
of the state board of health. It
would be far better to have the quar

chosen by Captain Merrill.
Undoubtedly Mr. Rickard. the emi eminent

BABSON'S BELIEVES BUSINESS

SOUND AND FURY
The following from the Louisville,
Ky., Times is a specimen of the ad advertising
vertising advertising Catts has been procuring
or Florida for four years:
The average Floridian, observing in
the Times-Union or the Tampa Tri
bune that the Reverend Sidney J.
Catts is on the loose again will yawn
and turn to more interesting reading.
The serious-minded resident of the
arboreal peninsula will scowl at the
thought that Florida's governor is
giving her some more bad advertis-
mg. tsacK amia tne palmetto ana at
the edge of the mangrove sawmp,
the cracker, when he gets around to
hearing about it will smack his lips
with approbation of Catts, kick three
lean hounds and a rattlesnake to one
side and aim a stream of terbacker
at the distant bayou.
Beyond these manifestations, there
is no possible importance to the fact
that the Reverend Governor Sidney
has norated it around that he pro proposes
poses proposes to take down his trusty shotgun
and punctuate therewith the hide,
gizzard and vitals of a newspaper
publisher of West Palm Beach. Thv
publisher is connected with the state
board of health, which is an omen of
good luck for him, but he really
doesn't need it. The Reverend Gov
ernor Sidney will probably never fire
the shotgun at him, and if he does,
will take care that the cartridges are
wet.
For Governor Catts is the final in
office of a trio of precious Southern
blusterers, of whom the other two are
Cole Blease of South Carolina, and
James K. Vardaman of Mississippi.

Who Said That

I II COST OF
Hadn't Been

You hard realize it, but the price of staple
groceries is getting back to normal very fast.
In days gone by, we had a man to walk in the
store and ask a clerk to fix him up a lunch. When
asked what he wanted, he replied: "Oh, give me a
nickels worth of cheese and crackers; I don't care for
expenses." That day will soon be here again.
When dealing here you do not have to worry
about whether you are getting the right price or not,
for we see to it that our prices are in line. Then
too, you save around 10 under the service stores.

Worry Takes Off
Flesh Faster Than
Nature Can Put
It On

The lives of most women are
full of worry. Men's troubles are
bad enough, but women's are
worse. Worry makes women sick.
It pulls them down, and in their
weakened condition they are sub subject
ject subject to all the pains, aches, weak weaknesses
nesses weaknesses that are peculiar to the sex.
Most women neglect their
health, and for this neglect they
pay the penalty. If a woman asks
her neighbors she finds that Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription
benefits a woman's whole system.

Columbus, GA.-Doctor Pierce's
Favorite Prescription did me a

world of good.
I was suffering:
with inward
weakness and
it caused me
to be extremely
nervous. My
back ached and
I had severe

pains in my
side. I was rest restless
less restless and could
not sleep well.

I was greatly in need of help so
decided to try the Favorite Pre Pre-ecription
ecription Pre-ecription and it was just excellent
in restoring me to health. It made
me feel like a different person."
