Constant Growth ot the

The future of Ocala never appeared
brighter than it does at present. The
growth of the city is shown very con conclusively
clusively conclusively by the demand for the en enlargement

developments have shown that the
consumption of the electric current
during 1921 increased over fifty per
cent and the municipal plant must be
enlarged to meet the demands upon it.
The Ocala Telephone Company has
found it necessary to install an en entirely

meet the demand for new phones. The
new switchboard will be of the most
modern type. It will be automatic and

value of new buildings erected during

Duval Girls' Basketball Team Won
The Game by a Score Of
24 to 17
(L. T. I.)
The Duval Tigerines somewhat out outclassed
classed outclassed the Ocala Wildcats last night
in the fastest exhibition of basketball
seen on the local'court this season.
In .spite of the rain a large crowd
attended this fast game and all were
so excited and interested in the play
that they hardly noticed the steady
rain that fell on them as they stood
arounl the court.
The Duval team had the odds on our
girls when it came to passing and
team work. The Wildcats had a bad
case of sleeping sickness in the first
half and let the Tigerines pile up a
score of 16 to 3 on them before they
realized they were in a game. It ap appeared
peared appeared that these little kittens were
somewhat self-conscious and timid on
meeting tigresses from the north
Florida jungles, but during the period
between halves they began to realize
that the only difference between a
tiger and a wildcat is the tiger's
stripes and that stripes could not hurt
them, so when the second half opened
things took on a different aspect.
Ocala came back good and strong but
Duval had piled up too large a lead
in the first half for the plucky home
girls to catch up. In spite of the up
hill work they scored 14 points, to
Duval's eight in the second half.
The entire game was marred by
continuous fouling by both teams. The
outstanding star of the game was Mc Mc-Cloud,
Cloud, Mc-Cloud, one of Duval's forwards. She
threw practically all of Duval's points
and rarely missed a shot at the basket.
Some of her shots were nothing short
of wonderful.
Annie MacKay came second in stel
lar work. Annie stuck to her forward
like chewing gum sticks under the
dining table and was with the ball no
matter where it went, so long as it
stayed in her territory. Her speed
was a marvel to all who saw the

The boys' basketball team from

already in town so there is no chance
of another such misunderstanding as
there was with the Dunnellon team.
The game tonight promises to be a
hotly contested one and will be worth
at least double the price of admission.
It appears to the reporter that the
boys support the girls' games better
than the girls do the boys. Why not
have a solid high school out tonight to
see Ocala fight it out with Trenton?
The boys can play better if the entire
school is on the side lines.

Commissioners Davis and Moore Show
The Inconsistency of Our Sis Sister
ter Sister County's Claims

It's easy to juggle figures and to
make a case at a fair. Volusia county
exhibitors seem to base their claims
for first place at the Orlando fair on
the number of ribbons won. Most of
these were won on articles whose rel relative
ative relative importance should not count
very high. To illustrate: A glass of
guava jelly, one of guava jam, one
of guava butter, one of guava paste,
one of guava preserves, one of guava
marmalade, one of guava pickles, one
of guava syrup, canned guava, etc.,
might each bring a blue ribbon. Is
anyone, or are all together, of as high
a value as a Poland China sow that
has won grand championship ribbons
at several larger fairs? Are nine rib ribbons
bons ribbons on guava products worth the
same as nine ribbons on nine bales of
different hays, each representing a
forage crop of economic importance
in livestock development?
The Volusia county exhibitors point
to varied industries as another class
wherein they beat us. They had more
of each industry's ouput but not more
industries represented. And in one of
these industry's booth they showed
four bags of Marion county lime. The
man in charge called our especial at attention
tention attention to this before the awards
were announced.
We would be willing to venture the
remark that the lime products alone
shipped out of Marion county would
exceed the total shipments of varied
industries from Volusia. The pro products
ducts products of our infant industry, the
creamery, represented a daily pay roll
of $175 at this time. Besides these,
we had knitting mill products, phos phosphates,
phates, phosphates, crate and box factory pro products,
ducts, products, road materials, cigars, etc.
The Volusia exhibitors state that
we won 53 blue ribbons. The secre secretary's
tary's secretary's books will show that we won
78 blues in our booth, and 15 blues on
hogs, besides two grand champions
and two reserve grand champions.
On Saturday morning, Feb. 18th,
the two Volusia county exhibitors
making the kick, Mr. Brown and Mr.
Dunaway, came to the Marion county
booth and congratulated us (J. W. Da
vis and K. C. Moore) on winning, stat
ing that they had contested the award
but had not carried their point, and
left the impression that they would be
good losers. However, all that day
the contest was carried on by them
or some one representing Volusia, and
the grand prize ribbon was never put
on our booth. As we understand it
the total score of points gave Marion
county 415 out of a possible 500 and
Volusia county 378.
Marion county won seven blue rib ribbons
bons ribbons on citrus fruits, and after the
squabble was started by Volusia two
of our best exhibits, ruby blood and
navel oranges, were not judged. Mar
ion won the blue ribbon on Lue Gim
Gong oranges, although this orange
originated in Volusia county.
We had hoped to meet them at Or
lando next year and are sorry to see
them pulling this "won't play" stuff.
Their claims were used not only be before
fore before the judges, the superintendent of
the agricultural department and the
fair association secretary, but were
carried up to the executive board of
the fair association. These all sus sustained

decided the matter Monday, Feb. 20

Ferryman at Cedar Landing Missing

For Two Weeks and Boat Found
Fifty Miles Down Stream
From His Home
The sheriff's office has received a
report of the mysterious disappear disappearance
ance disappearance of Gustavus Schewe from his
home at Cedar Landing east of Orange
Springs about ten days ago. Investi Investigation
gation Investigation has not produced any informa
tion as to his whereabouts nor the
manner in which he disappeared.
Neighbors have not seen him for near-
y two weeks.
Schewe is about twenty-three years
old and has resided in the Cedar
Landing section about two years. So
far as known he has no enemies who
might seek his destruction.
Cedar Landing on the Oklawaha
river east of Orange Springs has long
since been abandoned as a public fer
ry, but Schewe has been operating a
private ferry at that point for over a
year, liis natboat was found on the
St. Johns river near Palatka some
days ago, which leads to the belief
that he may have attempted to cross
the river and fell overboard. How
ever, not the least clue has been found
up to this time to indicate when or
in what manner Shewe disappeared.

he also informed the Senate that the

farmers are the "backbone" of this


The senator and I divide on those

cabbage, but we unite on the "back

bone," even if it is now nothing more

than a gristle.

Perhaps the difference between us is
merely temperamental. He hopes to
see the millions of tons of the nation's

cabbage, which sell at the average
price of $32 per ton, sent in small

crate shipments by express no less

than TOO miles and still leave fine
profits. I am not so hopeful as the
senator, though quite as friendly to

cabbage. Some times one may get
too much of a good thing; I did when

I grew cabbage.

Cabbage are grown in every state

of the Union and most northern
states are in luck when they can
move them 500 miles by freight in

car lots and net $40 per ton, and they
can seldom hope to crate and express

them in small lots over 200 miles and

get any return whatever. Cabbage

can be bought here now at $15 per ton

and there is no market at that price

There has been recently formed in
the Senate what is called the "farm

bloc," and Florida's senior senator is
a member of that bloc, while her

iunior senator is a chip off the same


That senior senator was for some

years my chief on the democratic ex

ecutive committee of this state, and

many years ago it was my pleasure to
present to the court the motion on

which that junior was admitted to the
bar. They are both kindly good men
and have long been my friends, but
what they do not know about farming

would fill many books.

Senator TrammelPs speech about
those cabbage is in entire keeping

with the knowledge of the members
of that bloc about our nation's
farming interests, which, no doubt,
they are all anxious to help. These
farming interests of ours are too vast,
varied and scattered for any man to
acquire in a life time a thorough
knowledge of them.

Their Capture Said to Have Been a
Regular Thing Prior to and
During Year 1815.
A shark nowadays even on the memt
eiposed beaches of New York and the
metropolitan area is a rarity and a
curiosity, but there was a time when
these fish used to be caught off Cath Catharine
arine Catharine slip, says the New York Sun.
This was about 1815, when the fishing
smacks and ilsh cars used to unload
and load off this wharf In the East
river and the dead fish thrown out Into
the water used to attract the sharks.
An old man, Sam Way, a porter in
the old Catharine market, earned a
reputation as a master shark catcher.
"Shark around the slip," was the
cry that was raised when a shark was
sighted off the pier and then Sam
would drop his broom and put eut his
chain hook and soon would have the
giant fish struggling on the dock. He
la said to have hauled In as many as
seven In one day, some of them four fourteen
teen fourteen feet long.
Devoe, the historian, tells an Inci Incident
dent Incident which Is passed on herewith with without
out without confirmation:
"One day Sam hooked a big one and
he climbed into a skiff which lay tied
to the end of the slip; the shark took
to pulling and broke loose the skiff
with Sam in, and away he went down
the river at race-horse speed, nearly
as far as Red Hook before he tired
out, or Sam could hold him up. He,
however, mastered him and brought
him back, and Sam after that con concluded
cluded concluded not to be run away with again.
So he stuck to the raft or dock when
he fished for 'shark' thereafter."

Long Litigation Over Seemingly Slight
Matter Really Was Matter of
High Importance.
Long litigation over possession of a
loaf of bread at last has confirmed the
claim of a common carrier to posses possession
sion possession of articles left behind by forget-
kful passengers, says the New York
Telegraph. By such seemingly trifling
incidents are established principles of
law and equity often brought to the
attention of the public.
The Issue grew out of the arrest of a
man who picked up a package left by
another passenger, on a seat of a New
York subway train. The trainmaster
demanded the package under the com company's
pany's company's rule requiring all such estrays
to be turned in at the office, subject to
claim by the owners. Although It then
was discovered that the package con contained
tained contained nothing more valuable than a
5-cent loaf of bread the matter went
to litigation.
Through all the devious ways that
such seemingly petty cases get up to
the highest court, the case reached the
Court of Appeals of the state. There,
after as solemn deliberation as is given
to issues involving large amounts of
moncj ond more iunmettras principles,
the court held that Hie rule of the com company
pany company was based on a well-established
principle of law.
The finder could have no claim to the
article as having been lost. It merely
had been left by the owner on the
property of the carrier, who at once
became bailee for the owner. The

right to It as finder under the law,

Pearls'From Herrings.
"French pearls" were very popular
before the war. To make these arti artificial
ficial artificial pearls, the French craftsmen ob obtained
tained obtained fish scales from the Russian
bleak fisheries, and used these sheeny
scales to give glass beads the luster of
pearls. The war stopped the Russian
fishermen, and consequently French
pearl-makers could no longer work.
Therefore great efforts were made to
find a substitute for the Russian fish
scales. Now It has been found that
the scales of certain sea herring and
shad possess a delicate luster similar
to oriental pearls. The silvery coat coating

To the real garden lover the charm of
the garden can be extended all through
the winter months, for a window gar garden
den garden gives cheer to a room and is al always
ways always a source of interest and delight.
Window boxes can be kept charming
for the entire year by filling them with
hardy begonias and ferns, suggests the
Christian Science Monitor. Another in interesting
teresting interesting arrangement, all in green, Is
of small palms and ferns of the long long-leaved
leaved long-leaved Boston type, and asparagus
sprengeri to trail over the edge. Prim Primrose,
rose, Primrose, the Chinese or common variety,
and Irish ivies make a window box
with a delightful color note. For late
autumn, if the room is kept cool, some
of the darJinsr little fhrvSHnthemiimn
n brown and yellow are effective and
they will last several weeks. For the
late winter or early spring flowering
bulbs may be used among ferns.
In planting a winter garden one
must always remember that plants do
not thrive near steam heat, and If the
radiator is under the window a broad
shelf should be placed six inches or
more above it and the box set back on
ttm shlf, so that the force of hot air
does not come too near the foliage.
The small expense and the little ef effort
fort effort required for a beautiful Indoor
window box makes It possible for
every home-loving woman to have one.
Restoration Worth While.
Why build new cottages? Why not
repair old ones? These were the ques questions
tions questions asked by the Society for the Pro Protection
tection Protection of Ancient Buildings, in Eng England,
land, England, and answered successfully. The
society took a veritable relic of old
England, five centuries old if a single
day, In the shape of two dwellings un under
der under one roof at Driakstone, in Suffolk.
The thick timbers, seasoned to the
quality of iron, were good, but the
roof, the floor and the windows were
defective. In fact the building was
habitable only on a portion of the
ground floor. Nothing daunted, ths so society
ciety society set to work and, hy Judicious
restoration, made the old dwellings as
sound as a bell. The total cost of the
work, including the freehold site, was
$3,612. A new cottage would have cost
at least $4,750, not including the site.
Is it any wonder that the society is
casting round for other old haunts to
conquer? Christian Science Monitor.

The advent of a new "landed gentry"
In England since the war is made plain

Over 100 names of old landowners have

their places have been taken by double

preface, the editor remarks: "Much
as the passing of old families from the
land, or the diminution of their hold holdings,
