In drawing the plans for the new
building at the Ocala Industrial
School, the architect, altho the new
building was intended to double the

ORIGINAL HORSE HAD CLAWS
Skeletons of Prehistoric Animals Show
That Nature Gave Them Some,

Seventeen skeletons of the so-called
"Clawed Horse11 of prehistoric times
from the Agate Spring fossil quarry of
western Nebraska have, been placed
in storage, for lack of exhibiting space,
at the American museum of natural
history, New York.
The varied skeletonlc combinations
of Moropus and deductions therefrom
are described by Professors Osborn
and Matthew, as follows:
The Moropus was a distant rela relative
tive relative of the rhinoceros, the tapir, and
the horse. It is about the size of a
rhinoceros but very different In
form; the head and neck are like
those of the horse. The rounded back
resembles that of a tapir, and the
legs, although massive like those of
the rhinoceros, are much longer. "The
teeth and feet are very distinctive.
The teeth show that the animal
browsed on vegetation.
"Moropus belongs with rhinoceros,
tapirs and horses to the order of Per Per-Issodactyls,
Issodactyls, Per-Issodactyls, or hoofed mammals with
an odd number of toes on. the hind
foot The ruminants, camels, pigs and
hippopotamuses have an even number
of toes either two or four. Moropus
has three toes. The feet with their
great claws are more like those of
ant eaters and similar digging mam mammals
mals mammals than of any of the hoofed mam mammals

It is suggested that the claws were
designed to aid in scraping away the
sand in dry river beds r other suit suitable

Lake Weir, May 18. Rev. J. C.
Boatwright of Anthony will hold serv
ices at the Baptist church Saturday
night, Sunday morning and Sunday
night. All are invited to come.
Robert L. Fosnot has bought, torn
down and moved by truck the old
Lake Weir Baptist church, which has
stood idle for the past twenty years
or practically since the big freeze of
'95, when the members of th&t church
were scattered to the four winds of
the globe. Everybody on the lake has
a soft spot in their hearts for dear
old Bob, who is always ready with his
strong right arm to defend the weak,
be it a woman, child or a bedraggled
kitten in need of help and we feel
there is a public sentiment among the
people of the lake that as the old
church was abandoned as a place of
worship, there is no one we would
rather see sheltered by its hallowed
walls than Bob and his bonny wife
and child. May they live long and
enjoy the substantial home he will
build from the old church on the crest
of the hill at Eastlake, overlooking
the limpid waters of the most beauti beautiful
ful beautiful lake in Florida.
The public school question has not
been settled yet as to where they will
locate the building some raising the
question of what shall the public do

plays, picture shows ,etc. Why not
keep the school houses at each place
for town halls. They" can be purchas purchased
ed purchased and moved further up-town, where
they would be conspicuous as public
buildings and ornaments to the town.
Several ladies kindly furnished din
ner for the men who cleaned up the
cemetery last week. If it had been
known at Lake Weir and Eastlake the
people would have gladly helped as
some of their loved ones and friends
are esting there. The cemetery needs
a well with a good pump that there
may be plenty of water for flowers
and grass that should be planted
there to beautify the resting place of
lhe washed sand company has a
full force of men working under the
direction of Mr. B. Baker, assisted by
Mr. Downing and Arthur Scott Jr.

seven to ten cars a day and sending
them to all points in Florida.

The reception given yesterday aft-,
ernoon by Mrs. Maude Home and
daughters, Misses Ethel and Elizabeth
Home, was one of the most elegant
affairs ever given in the city, despite
the fact that at the last hour they
were compelled to entirely change
their plans on account of the rain,
from a lawn party to an' indoor affair:
If plans for the lawn fete had ma materialized
terialized materialized it would decidedly have been
the most brilliant and beautiful social
affair ever given in Ocala. Entirely
encircling around the artistic grounds
were electric light bulbs, which were
to have been encased in unique Jap-'
anese lanterns, sent from Atlanta by
Mrs. Home's son, Mr. Norman Home,
and there were large Japanese um umbrellas
brellas umbrellas which were to have been deco
rated for different booths.
However, the hostesses are to be
highly commei ded for their cleverness
as the changes made appeared to
have been first plans and the home
was charming in its decorations of
spring flowers and greenery. The
front porch was most cozily arranged
with pot flowers, rugs and floor
lamps. Mrs. E. H. Martin stood at
the front steps to welcome the arrival
of the guests and usher them to the
left side of the porch, where stood
Mrs. W. A. Knight to introduce the
receiving line, which was formed just
inside the door or the living room,
and it was composed of Mrs. Home
and her two daughters, who were
attired in exquisite summer frocks
This room was most elaborately orna ornamented
mented ornamented with Shasta daisies, nastur nasturtiums
tiums nasturtiums and roses, with asparagus fern
Mrs. E. L. Carney invited the
guests into the library; where punch
was served from a heavily decorated
table of purple boaganvillea and pre.
sided over by Mrs. R. L. Anderson Jr.
and Miss Christine Close. Here ev
eryone tarried enjoying one another's
company and the orchestral music
furnished by Davis six-piece orches
tra, which was arranged in the par
lor. That room also was profusely
ornamented with flowers, the gladio gladio-las
las gladio-las being mostly admired.
Miss Callie Gissendaner stood at
the parlor entrance to add further en entertainment
tertainment entertainment for the callers as they
passed into the hall, which was pre presided
sided presided over by Mrs. J. K. Dickson and
Mrs. Mamie Howse Stovall. Mrs.
Emily Green invited the guests from
the hall into the dining room for re refreshments,
freshments, refreshments, which consisted of a two two-course
course two-course menu, salad, ice cream, etc.
This room was much admired for its
artistic floral decorations. Presiding
here was Mrs. Leon Mason, who was
assisted in serving the refreshments
by a coterie of lovely girls, Lucille
Home, Dolly Potter, Annie MacKay,
Sidney Cullen, Jess Dehon, Cornelia
Dozier, Clifton Sexton and Lucretia
Concluding this delightful affair,
which will always be remembered
with much pleasure by every caller,
was a dance in the evening, which
continued until a late hour. On their
departure there were heard many ex
clamations of having had the very
best time of their young lives.
Seemingly entertaining at auction
would at some date grow uninteresting-
but'in stead, the more indulged in,
the more fascinating it seems to be become
come become and too. there is generally pres
ent some attractive individuality on
the part of the hostess and certainly
it was in evidence yesterday when
Miss Dorothy Schreiber was hostess
to a six-table auction party at her
home on Oklawaha.
Miss Schreiber, becomingly gowned
in a chic yellow organdie, met each
guest at the front door, in a most
hospitable manner. Assisting in dif dif-feernt
feernt dif-feernt ways for the pleasure of all
present was the hostess mother En
hancing further the attractiveness of
this party were the bright electric
light shades and a profusion of all
sorts of colored flowers which lent a
soft setting for the entire afternoon.
The six tables were arranged in
the music room and library. Fancy
candies were enjoyed" during the
games. Fruit punch was also par
In conclusion strawberry puffs and
cake were served and ornamenting the
plates were paper centerpieces and
bouquets of sweet peas.

POCAHONTAS NOT REAL NAME
Literally Means Tomboy" and Was
Qlven to Indian Child as a
Term of Ridicule.
The story of John Smith and Poca
hontas is known to everyone who has
attended school in the United States,
but few know that the name Pocahon
tas was only a nickname, and meant
so un poetical a thing as "tomboy.'
Her real name was Ma-ta-oka. When
she was about ten or eleven years old
she was engaged in turning a series of
handsprings at the door of her father's
hut. He was the chief of the tribe,
and was known as Pow-ha-tan, al
though his real name was A-bun-so-na

came leaping through the forest with
a message for the chief. He turned
the corner nf th hnr Inat as thm llttla
daughter of the chief made one of her
j most vigorous wheels. Her flying feet
struck him in the chest and knocked
I him down.
Iisllans dearly love a rough joke,
and a great shout of laughter went up,
although the chief was anything but
pleased, and called his daughter sharp sharply
ly sharply to him. "This is not maiden's play,"
he said. "Will you never cease to be
a po-ca-hun-tas?" The children caught
up the name, and it clung to the little
; girl ever afterward. The English
changed the spelling a bit, but the
name has come down in history almost
as It was given away back In 1007.

Solomon obtained the gold for his

EASY TO BANISH THE "BLUES'
Undue Despondency Can Be Cured by
Attention to Diet and Cultiva Cultivation
tion Cultivation ef Optimism.
A fit of the "blues' is as much aa
intoxication aj a drunken spree, and
a bad attack may disqualify a person
for wise and efficient action as thor thoroughly
oughly thoroughly as alcoholic Intoxication.
A person subject to the "blues'
should in his most lucid and optimistic
moments resolve to make no impor important
tant important decision, and to set a special
guard over his conduct, while under
the influence of the flood of poisons
to which the condition is due.
The real cure for the "blues" lies
hi prevention by removing causes.
The foul breath and coated tongue
noted In these cases are abundant evi evidence
dence evidence of the poisonous origin of the
"blues." The adoption of a polsoo polsoo-free
free polsoo-free diet Is almost invariably fol followed
lowed followed quickly by a change In the men mental
tal mental state.
It is important, then, that we culti cultivate
vate cultivate optimism and forcing the mind
Into optimistic channels of thought.
This can best be accomplished by
reading optimistic authors and talking
with optimistic people. An excellent
plan Is to set oneself the task of cur curing
ing curing some other neurasthenic suffering
from his pessimism, by deluging him
with optimistic Ideas and expressions.

ZEALOUS OPPONENT OF DYES
Objection Made by English Quaker
'Was That They Led to Con.
cealment ef Dirt.
John Woolman, the Quaker, refused
to wear any clothing that had been
dyed. He carried his scruples so far
that he wore a hat that was of the
natural color of the fur, thereby pre presenting,
senting, presenting, as one of bis biographers re remarks,
marks, remarks, the aspect of a sort of Robin Robinson
son Robinson Crusoe. One of John Wool man's
objections to dyes was that they con concealed
cealed concealed dirt. Traveling often In, wet
weather through narrow streets, he
was frequently, distressed by various
Impurities especially when his Jour Journeys
neys Journeys took him to places where cloth
had been dyed, so that at sundry
times he had to "walk over ground
where much of their dyestuffs has
drained away." This produced In his
mind a great longing "that people
might come Into cleanness el spirit,
cleanness of person and cleanness
about their houses and garments.' As
further reason against dyes he ar argued
gued argued that the spirit that would hide
dirt leads to the concealment of any anything
thing anything that may be materially or mor morally
ally morally disagreeable, and Is therefore
contrary to sincerity. He contended
that If the money spent on dyeing were
devoted to the promotion of cleanliness
much good In every way would result.
Chang Smoked Pipe.
Li Hung Chang was the first to pay
me a visit In my capacity of minister
of finance. Count Serglus Witte late
Russian diplomat, writes In the
World's Work. When 4 we had taken
our tea, I inquired of Li Hung Chang
whether he did not want to smoke.
He emitted a sound not unlike the
neighing of a horse. Immediately- two
Chinamen came running from the ad adjacent
jacent adjacent room, one carrying a narghile
and the other tobacco. Then began
the ceremony of smoking. LI Hong
Chang sat quietly Inhaling and ex exhaling
haling exhaling the smoke, while his attendants,
with great awe lighted the narghile,
held the pipe, took It from his mouth,
and pnt It back. It was apparent that
Lt Hung Chang wanted to Impress me
with all these ceremonies. On my part,
I made believe that I did not pay the
a2ghtat attention to the proceedings.
