pitched winning ball and yet did not

What Henry Ford Says About
Machine Power Farming
"In the tractor- the farmer uo-v has a machine in which i& harnessed
one of the most adaptable, efficient, economical sources of power in the world
the internal combustion engine.
"The tractor will multiply the productive capacity of each individual
farm worker from three to four times over.
"It will put the farmer on a par with the' city manufacturer. It will put
his produce-producing factory for that" is what a farm is on to an efficient
production basis.
'It will enable each worker to earn so much more that he can be paid
more and still leave a greater profit for the man who hires him. It will enable
the fanrer to work fewer hours in the day, giving him more time to enjoy life.
"I believe the tractor will make farming what it ought to be the most
pleasant, the most healthful, the most profitable business on earth."

Trailmaker, Whether In Physical or

. Responsibilities.
To be a worthy trailmaker one must
see in imagination the thousands who
will follow the path he has the temer temerity
ity temerity to mark out. Sympathy for them
will affect every rod of his work., He
must be quick to note the points where
there may be confusion on the part of
the climber. No one can miss a path
cut through heavy underbrush. But
out in the open -forest or on long
stretches of treeless ledges he must
take particular pains. Trees must be
blazed, footpaths made certain. Cairns
of stones must be placed lik well well-marked
marked well-marked signposts. A trailmaker must
have it on his conscience that even a
single traveler might fall because of
his failure to' make the path certain.
If this is true of one who essays to
make a mountain trail, how much
greater the responsibility on him who
undertakes to blaze the way into those
higher ranges of human activity.

One of Florida's Most Progressive Sections
Yet It Has Scarcely Been Scratched
(Marion County Floridian) "'
Marion' county is one of the most unde undeveloped

This may seem to be an astonishing state statement;

the most substantial and progressive coun counties
ties counties In Florida. The fact is, however, that
this county has scarcely more than been
scratched. The natural resources of the
'county are great. It has vast possibilities.
To say that this section of the state is so
undeveloped is simply another way of say saying

phasize emphasize the fact that there is so much that
is undeveloped. To predict that, the state
will make greater strides during the next
ten years than it has during the past fifty
is to make a very conservative prophecy.
Marion county is larger than the state of
Rhode Island by several hundred square
miles. Less than one-fifteenth of the lands
in the county are being cultivated. There
is very little waste land in the county. Most
of the lands are high and rolling, well
drained and suitable for some sort pf agri agriculture
culture agriculture and horticulture. The low lands
can be drained. Marion county is one of the
mostf populous counties in Florida, yet it
has a population -of only 23,968, according
to the federal census of' 1920.
Lands in Marion county may still be
classed as cheap, although this is one of the
richest sections of the state, and farm values
have increased more than eighty, per cent,
during the last ten years. Improved lands
in this county can be bought for from $25
to $100 an acre. Raw lands can be bought
for less. The land prices are based on di diversified
versified diversified farming, and the publicity that
Florida has received outside of the state
has featured the tourist resorts, citrus
fruits and early vegetables. Florida has
never been looked upon as a general farm-
ing state and it is only in recent years that
it is beginning to be realized outside of the
state what has been done here in general
farming. With few exceptions, the people
of other states visualize Florida as a land
of winter resorts, orange groves and early
vegetables. Higher prices are demanded
"here, of course, for some of the trucking
and citrus fruit lands. The prices in this
county will not remain cheap much longer
The state is developing too fast, and this
county offers too many opportunities to be
Large areas in this county have been cut
up into farms and groves averaging about
100 acres. The rest of the county is in
large tracts, for" the most part cut-over

women to get back to the soil and not merely
sell them dirt and leave them with a con contract
tract contract for deed and a lot of notes and nothing
with which to operate.
The natural beauty of the country lying
within the boundaries of Marion county is
worthy of being, capitalized to an extent
now undreamed of. There is in the county
a group of springs of marvelous size and
beauty, probably the most extraordinary
group of large and crystal clear springs to
be found anywhere in the world. None of
them has been developed to an extent even
approaching its possibilities. They need to
be placed in the hands of capable landscape
architects, not to be made artificial and
formal, but that the beauties of the sur surroundings
roundings surroundings might be preserved and brought
out. Hotels are needed and the water at attractions
tractions attractions need to be supplemented with golf
links and facilities, for other outdoor sport
and recreation. Besides these remarkable
springs there are many beautiful lakes in
the county, clear water lakes with white
sand bottoms and beaches, surrounded by
bluffs and hills. They afford ideal sites for
winter homes. -Further than that, these
springs and lakes offer year around attrac attractions.
tions. attractions. Some of the springs and lakes are
near the railroads and highways. Others are
still more or less inaccessible. As already
stated, this is a vast county and it has not
been scratched. A wonderful thing about
the county is that it has so many miles of
good roads, roads that would put to shame
counties in some of the richest agricultural
sections of the United States. There are
over 225 miles of hard-surfaced highways
in the county, over which traffic is halted at
no season of the year. It is a splendid sys system
tem system of roads when the population of the
county and its large area are taken into
consideration. The roads are not perfect.
The people of the county are not satisfied
with them. They are roads, however, "that
with few exceptions, the farmer and grove
owner can move their products over every
day in the year, and they reach most of the
farms and groves npw in the county. The
county has voted bonds to fcuikf better roads,
with smoother surfaces to meet the needs of
the automobile, East of the v Ocklawaha
river there are few good roads and noraili

county is very sparse, JVfth.;A ) railroad

roads it has big possibilities. It is in the
Lake Region; A large part of the section is
high and rolling. Lake Kerr is one of the
most attractive lakes in Florida. It is a
large "lake," with, high hills around it and it
has a white sand beach. At present it is
isolated, and is reached by neither good
roads nor by a railroad. Salt Springs, near
Lake. Kerr, are remarkable springs. The
waters are saline. They have medicinal
properties. Salt water fish and crabs are
found in them. Silver Glen Springs, near
Lake George, are most attractive and have
a large flow of clear water. A railroad that
would touch Orange Springs, in the north northeast
east northeast corner of this county, Silver Springs,
and the lakes just east of the river, with a
branch,- line reaching Lake Kerr, Salt
Springs and Silver Glen Springs, would
open up a section of wonderful possibilities.
Such a railroad, running down through the
Lake Region of Florida, which has no coun counterpart

attractive resort country, a splendid citrus
belt, and in this county, the muck lands
along the Ocklawaha. Capital is overlook overlooking

this section. The Lake Region of Florida is

destined to become famous. It is already
well known.
Marion county is rich in minerals. A
large part of the county is underlaid with
what is known as "Ocala limestone," which
is almost pure lime. The limestone is being
mined and kilned; ground for agricultural
purposes; pulverized into mineral filler for
road construction purposes, and is used ex extensively
tensively extensively as a base baterial for roads, the
federal good roads bureau having approved
of "Ocala limestone" for base purposes. The
"Ocala limestone" has been tested and found
to compare most favorably with concrete as
a base material, if properly protected by
surfacing and drainage. A firm in Jackson,
ville is manufacturing an excellent building
store with "Ocala limestone." The stone is
being hand cut with extraordinarily good re results.

of several grades. There are vast deposits
of this limestone in the county. It outcrops,
in many, places. Here are opportunities.,
The citrus fruit industry iii-Marion county county-has
has county-has not been developed as it should be. This
section of the state produces fruit of a vers'
high quality. The packing houses in this
county ship 50 to 75 first grade fruit,
a considerable quantity of which is fancy.
One grove Company 'in this county sold its
orange crop for $3.87 a box average, culls
and all. The orange was found growing
wild. in this county. The citrus industry of
Florida had its beginning here. It is quite
true that, the freeze of 1895 seriously in injured
jured injured the citrus industry in this county, but
it did no more damage here than it did else elsewhere
where elsewhere in the state. The freeze was not with without
out without its good results, for the people in thU
county turned to diversification. Those who
stuck to citrus fruits have since made good.
The freeze of 95 was a freak cold, a com combination
bination combination of weather conditions that never
occurred in the state before, has never oc occurred
curred occurred since and probably never will occur
again. The citrus industry in this county
will never again be caught as unprepared
as it was in '95. Many things have been
learned since then. Today Marion county
has some of the very finest groves in Flor Florida,
ida, Florida, groves that went through the freeze of
1917, and are today as healthy and beautiful
as one would want to see. Two large citrus
developments are now under way in the
county. Many small groves and new nurs nurseries
eries nurseries are being established. Old groves are
being enlarged.
Deciduous fruits do well in this county.
They have had practically no attention be because
cause because attention has been given to other
crops, and deciduous fruits have been left
to take care of themselves. The best re results
sults results have not been attained. Spraying for
blight and diseases has been neglected.
Fruit trees must be cared for in any coun country,
try, country, of course. The possibilities of these
fruits here are beginning to be realized
more and more. Better peaches are being
raised, for one thing. There is a large peach
development in the southeastern corner of
this county. Peaches, are being planted in
other parts of the county on a small scale.
The Japanese persimmon; is a fruit with big
possibilities that is being recognized more
and more.
The muscadine grape grows wild in this
county, to such an extent that the United
States Department of Agriculture sent a
specialist here to make a study of the wild
grapes with a view of propagating and de developing
veloping developing the same. The scuppernong grapes
are grown with success on the farms and in
gardens throughout the county, but there
has been no effort made to start the grape
growing industry here on a large scale.
Many of the varieties of grapes grown else elsewhere
where elsewhere will not do well in Florida. The native
grape" and those related to it, however, will
do well here and can be developed. A most
excellent grapejuice is made from the mus muscadine
cadine muscadine grape, as well as syrups, jellies and
ether products.
The blackberry grows wild throughout
Marion county. If cultivated it has big
possibilities. It is being grown successf ully
in other states and has been crossed rith

Dairying is an important part of farming
and the attention given it in this county has

Plans Call for Planting One Hundred Thou Thousand

(Marion County Floridian)
The Wartmann Nursery Company of
Ocala is establishing a new nursery just
southeast of the city. Its plans call for the
planting of one hundred thousand trees.
This will be sour orange stock for which
Marion county is famous. There ha3 been
such a demand for Marion county nursery
stock that the Wartmann Nursery Company
has found it necessary to add to its nursery.


Gross Returns for Season Will be Over Half
Million Dollars
(Marion County Floridian)
In spite of a very bad beginning brought
about by increased freight rates, Marion
county has had a very successful trucking
season. Incomplete returns gathered by
the Marion County Board of Trade from
the various shipping point's indicate that the
truck crops of the county have this season
yielded gross returns totaling well over a
half million dollars. The! tomato crop, one
of the largest that has ever been shipped
out of the county, and the watermelon crop,
were the largest of the season. More than
895 cars of truck -were shipped, not includ including
ing including crate shipments in less than car lots.
The incomplete figures show that the gross
returns were $576,346. The number of cars
of tomatoes shipped was 215, and the num number
ber number of cars of watermelons was 530. Of
cucumbers, there were 36 cars shipped, and
of string beans, 28. Due to increase in
freight rates, the cabbage crop was almost
a total loss, and lettuce brought very little.
Most of the cabbage was left in the fields.
The gross returns for the various crops as
shown by the incomplete figures were: for
tomatoes, $224,394; watermelons, $185,500;
string beans. $71,326; cucumbers, $64,653;
lettuce, $12,258; cantaloupes, $18,215. These
figures are based on the following average
prices obtained: tomatoes. $2; watermelons,
$350; string beans, $2; cucumbers, $3; let lettuce,
tuce, lettuce, 75c.; cantaloupes, $2.25.
Most of the tomatoes were shipped from
two packing houses in Ocala, there being
150 cars shipped from this point. Mcintosh
was next with 34 cars. In round numbers,
the following individual shipments were
made thru the packing house of Mr. J. C.
Johnson, of Ocala: 8000 crates, off of 40
acres of his own, and 2000 crates off of 20
acres share cropped; W. M. Gist & Son, 4000

1000 crates off of 10 acres. Mr. Johnson,
who sold his entire crop under contract, re received
ceived received a return of around $15,000 for his
tomatoes. His net return was around $7500.
Mr. Johnson is recognized as one of the
most successful growers of tomatoes in
Marion county. In 1920, his tomato crop
brought him $16,000 from 40 acres; in 1919,
$15,000 from 45 acres; in 1918, over $6000
from 20 acres; in 1917, over $7000 from 20
acres, and he had been getting" good re returns

An Institution of Which City Has Reason to
b Proud V
(Marion County Floridian)
Ocala's municipal Test room for women
and children is an institution of which the
city has reason, to be very proud. It was
the first rest room in Florida started by a
civic organization. During 1920 there were
10,275 registrations and many who made
use of the room did not register, probably
half again as many as registered. During
the first six months of this year 5051 per persons
sons persons have registered. Not only is the rest
room used by the women and children of
the county when in town shopping or on
other occasions, and by the women and chil children
dren children of Ocala generally, but the girls
and women who work in the stores and of offices
fices offices make use of the room, during the noon
lunch hour especially. School children make
use of the room. An efficient and obliging
maid is in attendance.
Mrs. C. R. Tydings, chairman of the com committee
mittee committee of the Ocala Woman's Club having
the rest room in charge, gives" the following
interesting information concerning the in institution:
stitution: institution: "The' purpose of the rest room,"
says Mrs. Tydlntrs, "is to provide a com comfortable
fortable comfortable place where the women and chil children

Attracting Many Bathers and Camping
(Marion County Floridian)
Blue Springs, the second largest springs
in the United States and probably in the
world, located m this county, are attracting
many bathers, picnic and camping parties
this summer.
The springs afford splendid recreation for
the people of Dunnellon and vicinity, espe especially,
cially, especially, but many from all over the county
and adjoining counties enjoy the waters,
which are of a bluish tinge but clear as air.
Mr. F. E. Hemphill, of Juliette, owner of
the springs, has this summer built new
bath houses and a new dock.
Blue Springs are best reached from Ocala
and other points in the county by way of
Dunnellon, the distance to the springs from
Ocala being about thirty miles. The springs
are well worth seeing both for their size and
their beauty.
Florida cane syrup has Ion? been consid considered
ered considered one of the finest, if not the peer, of all
syrups. The handling of the pyrup for mar market

qualities have presented difficulties. Mr.
Aubrey Trink, of Fellowship, in this county,
is one who believed that these difficulties
can be overcome. This season Mr. Frink
bottled his syrup, sealed and labeled the
bottles neatly, and disposed of his entire
crop at a good price. The coming season he
expects to have a larger crop. As he builds
up his business and his product gains a rep reputation,
utation, reputation, Mr. Frink expects to increase the
attractiveness of the containers. He believes
that a good quality of, syrup in an attrac attractive

Sugar cane has long been grown in Marion
county with success.
There are two large caves in Marion
county. Waldo Cave is located about three
miles southwest of Ocala between the Shady
Grove and Dunnellon roads. Jennings Cave

Springs and about three miles southwest of
