Every once in awhile I, hear some
one wonder why Ocala is so unpro unpro-gressive;
gressive; unpro-gressive; so slow in comparison with
other towns.
This is my thirtieth Christmas in
Ocala. I will try to review what the
town was Christmas eve, ", 1892, and
let you compare it with the little city

of today; and decide for yourselves
if it is unoroerressive. and if its

growth hasn't been solid.
- Like Ocala, I have been twitted for

being slow, and sneered at because I

have stayed in one town and remained

on one job for over a quarter of a

century. But nearly half my years

had gone by before 1 came to Ocala;
I had wa.ndered over a lafge portion
of America; I had been in states by

the 'dozen, seen cities by the score
and towns and villages by the hun hundred;
dred; hundred; and if I have remained in Ocala
so long it is because I have found the
place is good, and never since com coming
ing coming here saw the time when I was
certain I could find a better.
, If you are born in a townthe first
point in your recollection is your
home; but-if you come into it at any
- time after you began to sit up and
take notice you will date from where
you came in and where you had your
first meal and first night's rest.
It was the first Sunday evening in
December- that I swung off the Flor Florida
ida Florida Southern train at the chicken
' coop of a depot that then stood back
of the Ocala 'House L. It was a little
brick tier, not much bigger and not
near so good-looking as the "Kum "Kum-back"
back" "Kum-back" service station thafnow stands
on the first corner south of it. The
Florida Southern was a narrowgauge
railroad. It ran one passenger train
each way a day, from Palatka thru
Ocala tci Brooksville. This passenger
service was about equivalent to that
now given by trains nine and ten be between
tween between Leesburg and Jacksonville. The
line is now a broadgauge, with, four
first-class passenger trains per day
between Jacksonville- and St. Peters Petersburg,
burg, Petersburg, and the Leesbug-Jacksonville
train, the Homosassa train and the
train to and from Wilcox through
Gainesville daily, beside the tri triweekly
weekly triweekly service to Lakeland and to
Wilcox via Dunnellon.
The Seaboard was then the Florida
Central & Peninsular. It ran two
trains daily thru Ocala between Fer Fer-nandina
nandina Fer-nandina and Tampa, and two between'
Jacksonville arid Tampa. The train
to and from Fernandina wis a full
passenger train, taking a Pullman
from the Jacksonville and River
Junction train at Baldwin coming
southwest, and releasing another
v Pullman 'it the same point to the east east-.
. east-. bound train. At that time the road
from Jacksonville to River : Junction
was the main line, of the system.. To Today
day Today tha main line is from Jacksonville
to Tampa, thru Ocala! The. night
train between Jacksonville and Tam Tampa
pa Tampa was mixed several freight cars,
a combination baggage and jimcrow
car, a passenger coach and a sleeper.
There was no mail clerk on the train,
but closed sacks for and from the
principal points were carried. It was
owing to tfe Star's efforts that this
train began doing a regular mail
service the Star in 185)7 requesting
Mr, I S. M. Sparkman, then congress congressman
man congressman from the first district, in which
Ocala was then located, to have a
mail-clerk put on the train, which he
did, and the train soon afterdiscard afterdiscard-ed
ed afterdiscard-ed its freight cars and b'ecame the ex excellent
cellent excellent passenger train it now is. The
read now the Seaboard, now runs
three first-class trains each way, from
Jacksonville to Tampa, daily two of
them, the limited, as fine trains as
there Sire in the South beside the
elegant Suwanee special in the tourist
season. The F. C. & IV then had a
comparatively new passenger station,
the one which, shabby and inadequate,
was torrV down a few years ago.
There svas another road, the Silver
Spring!?, Ocala & Gulf, from Ocala to
Homosassa with a branch line to In Inverness.
verness. Inverness. It had a little depot west
of the Pond street crossing, but took
passengers at the F. C. & P. station.
The F. C. & P. freight depot -was
about half its present capacity, and
the'aicd not more than a third. The
Florida. Southern had the same

freight depot uptown the Coast Line

one came "in. Today the Seaboard j
alone has eighV trains thru, the least!
of which much better than the best
of then, and Fhe Coast Line six, beside
the town being the terminus for two
daily and two tri-weejdy trains, not
counting the rather indefinite service
over the Oklawaha Valley.
Probably the next thing to consider

in a town is-its hotels, In 189f ttw

Ocaal House wa3 in its heyday. It
was the only first-class hotel in town,

and peer of any in Florida except the
Fjagler hotels at St. Augustine and
the Tampa Bay. The Montezuma was
a second-class but comfortable hotel.
The Central (now Colonial), Florida
House, Arlington (since turned), and
two or three more were only big

Today the Harrington (except in
size) is the, equal of any all-year-round
hotel in the gtate. The Ocala
House is better furnished an4 more
up-to-date than thirty years ago. The
Colonial has doubled and Florida
House tripled their accommodations.
One of the first things for peoplf
tOj consider in a town is its schools;
another is -its churches. In 1892,
Ocala had two public school buildings.
One for the whites was tfo$ present
dormitory. It. was only two-thirds
its present size, but accommodated
all the white children In (town. How Howard
ard Howard Academy, the colored sehool,waa
a big frame building which with its
campus covered part of the ground
now taken up by the A, C L. yard.. It
was shabby inside and out and not
near sq large as the present Howard
Academy, Some years lafer the addi addition
tion addition to the white schoolhouse was
built, then the primary schooj was
erected in its present location. A few

more years and the primary school
was enlarged to. its present size, then
the new high school building and the
North Ocala schoolhouse were erect'
ed, and the white schools had attained
their present size. They accommodate
three times as many children as were
held by the 1892 schoolhouse, and an

other big schoolhouse must be built

right away.

The original Howard Acadeniy was
burned soon after I came here. The
negro children were taught in tJe col colored
ored colored Masonic hall until the new How Howard
ard Howard Academy, much bigger and bet better,
ter, better, was built. It also became crowded,
and atout ten yers ago the annex to
it was constructed- The negro popu population
lation population of Ocala has not increased a,s
fast as the white, but it has twice
the school space it' had thirty, years
ago. ;
Ocala's churches have not grown so
fas. as Ocala's schools, but they have
made considerable increasein thirty
years. The Baptist church, in 1892,
was the jnain body of the preesnt
building, furnished insidewith Spar Spartan
tan Spartan simplicity. The lighting was dim,
the building was chilly in cold weather
and oppressively warm in hot. The
annex has been added, the interior en entirely
tirely entirely rearranged and the young peo people's
ple's people's building to the north of it con constructed.
structed. constructed. -At the time I came here
the church'house was too big for its
congregation, which never filled it un unless
less unless a considerable number of people
of other denominations attended some
special service.
The Methodist church was new in
1892, and outwardly the same build building
ing building before rebuilding began a few
months ago. But the Sunday school
room was walled off to itself, so it

could not be usea for the overflow of

the congregation. Later, the partition
was removed, adding about 50 per
cent, to the seating capacity. The
Methodists also had plenty of seating
room in their church. The Presby Presbyterian
terian Presbyterian and Christian churches have, not
changed except somewhat in interior
furnishings. The Episcopalians had a

little ch pel on West Washington

street, where MacKay & Company's
stable now stands. It had about half
the capacity of their present pretty
little church on the corner of South
street, or East Broadway, and Wa Wa-tula.
tula. Wa-tula. The Catholic church was the
same as now, but the big new church
they, are building on Oklawaha had
not been thought of. There has been
no change in the Jewish synagogue.
. Returning to secular buildings, the
Marion county courthouse was a lit little
tle little block of red. brick" in the center of
the public square. Altho a much
smaller buildUg than the present
edifice, the coiner stone of which was

laid in 1906, it had almost as-much
space inside, on account of, more
narrow .passages and fewer rooms.
The court room upstairs was much
larger than the one in use now. Con Consequently,
sequently, Consequently, there was less room for
county offices. The county school
board had its office elsewhere. The
county jail was in the building now
used for the city hall, and the city
and county locked their prisoners up
together. The city council had its
offices in a room in the Thompson
block, opposite Liddon's stable on
South Magnolia street. The post-office
was in the corner room of the Merch Merchants'
ants' Merchants' block now occupied by the
Farmers' Exchange as ,a wholesale
room. There was no firehall. The
fire department was entirely volun volunteer.
teer. volunteer. There' was a steamer and sev several
eral several hose carts, and a hook and lad ladder
der ladder truck. There was a wooden bell

nights by arc lights at long intervals.
I think there were four arcs on the
public square, all of them equal prob probably
ably probably to one of the present white way
lamps. They were strung along a
block apart on the principal streets.
Interiors of buildings were lit by the
old-style jncandescents. Not more
than ten pe.r cent of the residences

were lit by electricity. There was
not an electric motor nor stove in
town, and but few electric fans. The
street lights followed the moon that
is, they were not shining when the
moon was. The incandescent were
cut off" in stores and residences at
midnight. There never was any cur current
rent current in the daytime, and the luxury of

turning on 1 light on a dark day or
as soon as dusk began to gather
was unknown- The eleetrie light plant
belonged to a private company, and
while its rates were reasonable fox
then, they were much higher than
they are now.
Ocala had a good water supplyTnit
it would not meet a fourth of the
present demand. The power was a
couple of old-style engines in a little
brick house at the corner of Fourth
street and Orange avenue. There
were two or three good wells, md the
reservoir was on the brick tower at
the top of the hill on what is now
Camp Heights. A simple plant,
but a very reliable one. Few towns
m the state had such a powerful water

pressure. The water company was
very economical and its rates were

high. People paid a dollar a month

for one faucet, and additional if it

was used .to supply a garden hose

The people were yet drawing a large
supply of their water from surface

wells, and typhoid fever was not un uncommon.

the waterworks belonged to a private

Ocala had two bajiks the First
National, where the Commercial now
stands, and the Merchants' National,
in the same building now occupied by
the Munroe & Chambliss National
Bank. The two banks were at war
with each other, and the Merchants.'

National, aided by the panic of '93
and the freeze of '95, downed the
First National., It was a Pyrrhic vic victory,
tory, victory, and in '96 the Merchants' Na National
tional National also went smash. At that time,
Ocala touched rock bottom. Scores
of' families left the city and hundreds
the county. Money was never so
scarce nor business so dull. 1 Yet
there was very little actual suffering.
People continued to et and wear
clothes, and as there were scores of
houses empty nobody had to stay out
in the rain.
The county, had to build a jiew jail,
and the city managed' to buy the old
jail building and move its offiees into
it, where they have been ever since.
The fire hall as built, the fire depart department
ment department concentrated in it, with a few
paid men and a big volunteer force to
aid' them. The city bought the elec electric
tric electric light plant and began to improve
it, and has been improving it ever
since. Then it bought the water
works an?l concentrated the two
utilities on their present location.
There has been a great deal of money
spent and some wasted in these ope operations,
rations, operations, but the people have more
than received their money back in
lower rates.
The county has built a new court courthouse
house courthouse and two new jails, the latter
now in use, at a combined expense of
$150,000. The federal government
has erected a solid and Well construct constructed
ed constructed posteffice and courthouse, at a cost
of about ?100,000 on a city block that
was unoccupied ground up to 1907.
Th? two "busted" banks have been
replaced by three, the Munroe and
Chambliss, the Ocala National and
the Commercial. Either of the first first-named
named first-named two does much more business
than bth the two old banks put to together.
gether. together. Ihe Munroe & Chambliss
Bank and the Commercial have re remodeled
modeled remodeled the buildings they bought
from the executors of the dead and
gone firms and made them handsome
and uptodate. The Ocala National
has put up a good-looking and sub substantial
stantial substantial building of its own.
One of .the greatest institutions of
the city was not even thought of in
1S92. I refer to the Marion County
Hospital, now a large, well-equipped
institution, of benefit to the city and
all its adjoining territory.
Neither was fhe Marion County
Fair thought of in 1892, nor for more
than" a dozen years afterward. The
ground it covers now was a tract of
blackjack scrub then.
Ocala had more papers injl892 than
in 1921. There was the Banner, then
as now, a big, influential weekly, the
Florida Baptist WTituess, the organ of
Florida Baptists, the Marion Free
Press, a very weak specimen of jour journalism,
nalism, journalism, arid the New Capitaf, Captain
Tom Harris' daily, which was quite
lively for awhile. But thre is more
monev invested in either the Star or
the Banner of today than there was in
the entire printing business of Ocala
in 1892.
Thirty years ago, Ocala, had not a
yard of paved street nor a foot of con concrete
crete concrete sidewalk, except perhaps where
some property -owner had improved
the walk immeditaely in front of his
home. In some places on the streets

ra? mat. ine jrrss was raggea; ;

and around it; the Confederate monu-'
ment had not been tuilt, and the sole

redeeming feature of. the square
wjere the trees, which gave less than
half the shade of those of today.
On the south and east sides of the

square the building, the Ocala House j

cil the stores from Mam to Magno-j

lia, are practically the same, tho' all 1

ihe stores have been remodeled apd
are vast'y better, in convenience and j
good looks. On the west sice, from j
the little candy store north of Mas-'
ters, every building has been built, re-;

built or. almost made over. On the 1

north side, there is only one building

on the entire block that was therein
1892. That is the Banner's business
office, then Dr. Marean's office. Then
the club house and the building occu occupied
pied occupied by the Vatoldi restaurant faced
the square. Th Ocala National Bank,
the Robertson building, ..the Marion
Hardware, the Banner office, and the
building which contains Sam Pyles'
undertaking parlors have all been
It is not possible in less than a
book to give a c!iplete story of the
building that has gone on in thirty
years, but the mildest estimate is that
Ocala has doubled both in business
houses and residences.' Ocala in 1892
had not more than three thousand
people. Today it has at least six thout
sand. North Ocala in 1892 did not
exist. The two squares between
South Sixth and South Eighth, east,
was a pretty piece of woodland, with
one house on it. Now it is crowded
with residences. Dr. Moody's house
was the only building in Lynnwood.

iiAj Acad-iiAj now stand?, with scores of cot cot-t?ges

More than that if you walk along
any of our streets and can eliminate
in your mind's eye fhe houses that did
not stand there thirty years ago, you
will be surprised at the gaps.
Ocala "then, as now, was the dis distributing
tributing distributing point of a wide expanse of
stock and farming country; it was
also headquarters for the trade of the

principal phosphate field. However,
there was not near so much business
in proportion, because the farmers of
coday are on the average two, and
three times as well off as they .were
then. It would have taken all that

have as much money invested in them
as all Ocala's industrial plants in
1892. The biggest industry in to.wn
was the old ice facto sy, which made
about one-fourth as much ice as. Tay Taylor
lor Taylor Bros. make now. Taylor's mill
was a modest little industry, about
one-tenth of the big plant of now.
The Ocala foundry, a small iron shed
on the east side of the Florida South Southern

the Ocala Iron Works of today. I

that so far from being unprogressive
