Marshal Gordon, Clerk SLstrunk And
Other Officers Re-elected At
Last Night's Meeting
(L. T. I.)
The entire membership of the city
council, the mayor, the city manager
and the city attorney were at the
meeting Tuesday night.
Dr. W. P. Wilson, representing the
Metropolitan Realty and Investment
Co., asked the council to lower the as assessment
sessment assessment on block 64. This is the
property that was sold at auction re recently,
cently, recently, situated at the end of Okla Okla-waha
waha Okla-waha avenue. Mr. F. W. Ditto spoke
in favor of a lower assessment in view
of the fact that other property close
by was rated much lower. The mat matter
ter matter was referred to Mr. Pedrick as a
committee to investimate and report
at next meeting.
Mr. Baxter Cam asked the council
to reduce some sidewalk paving certi certificates
ficates certificates that the city holds against his
property on Dougherty street. Mr.
Cam and the city attorney say that
Mr. Cam had a man on the job to put
down this sidewalk a id the city let a
contract to another man. Mr. Cam's
man was to do the work on a back
debt and he would have saved that
much. Mr. Cam now wants to pay
the city the cost of the material used
in the sidewalk but not for the work.
City Attorney Hocker advised that
this claim was a just one and the
matter was referred to the city man manager
ager manager to determine what the material
would have cost at that date. Mr.
Cam also asked to redeem some tax
certificates without paying back inter interest.
est. interest. This request was refused.
Mrs. Perdue appeared before the
council in the interest of the humane
society. Mrs. Perdue stated that she
had heard much complaint about the
way the city s force ot pound men
handled the cattle and other animals
they were taking to the pound. She
preferred charges against a negro
that she said was called "Cow Boy,"
for whipping a goat until it could not
stand up and then stamping it into
the ground and also made bitter
charges against the mounted police police-mart
mart police-mart for using his whip. She charged
that he not only whipped the cows un-
mercifully in driving them to the
pound but that he also beat them after
they were shut up, and charged that
he drove one cow down into the rail railroad
road railroad cut and caused it to break its leg
and then left it there for three days
until some one forced him to go there
and shoot it. The council took no ac action
tion action on these charges.
Mr. C. G. Rose asked that the coun council
cil council give the baseball association spe special
cial special police at the ball game. Referred
to Mayor Peek.
Mr. E. P. Townsend appeared with a
petition from people living in his
neighborhood asking that two streets
be opened up through the Townsend
property, to-wit: Alvarez from S. 8th
to S. 10th and S. 10th from Orange
avenue to Alvarez. Mr. Townsend
wants to sell this property the city
for $1000 an acre. This matter was
referred to the street committee and
Manager Brumby to report at the next
meeting of the council.
The Ocala Auto & Garage Co. re requested,
quested, requested, in a written communication,
that it be allowed a share of the city's
garage repair and sales business, and
offered a 10 per cent cut on all tires,
tubes and accessories that the city
bought from it. Mr. Brumby said that
it was his intention to divide the city
business among all the merchants and
he was already trying to do it, but he
was not yet familiar with the lines of
goods carried by each, and was work
ing along that line.
Mr. JrM. Meffert sent in a letter
demonstrating that he was over over-assessed
assessed over-assessed on city property. He listed
his small amount of household goods,
his automobile, his dwelling and then
drew a comparison with his neigh neighbors,
bors, neighbors, Gerig, Osborn, Jack, Clarence,
Clifton and William Camp on their
assessments and showed where he had
nothing compared to their property
and yet was assessed on par, or nearly
so, with them.
The Florida Knitting Mill requested
that its supply of power and lights
be cut off for a period of sixty days
while the plant was not in operation.
This brought up a discussion as to
whether the city could afford to do
this. If the transformers are up they
use current whether the knitting mill ;
is using it or not and it will cost con-
siderable to take them down and re-
place them at the end of sixty days.
It was referred to the city manager to



see whether it would be cheaper for
the mill to pay for re-installation or
to pay the minimum rate while closed.
The report of the rest room showed
894 registered guests and seventeen
out of state guests.
The report of the city health officer
showed that the milk from the Painter
dairy was the richest 'and the milk
from the Thrash dairy the cleanest
last month. Dr. Watt was present,

and after, reading his report the coun council
cil council asked if he had any recommenda recommendations
tions recommendations to make as to the city's sanitary
conditions. Dr. Watt said that since
Mr. Brumby had taken charge the im
provement had been so marked and
was still going on at such a rapid
rate that he hesitated to ask anything
more, but that if there was any one
thing that he wanted' the city to get
after it was the mosquito. He outlined
a simple plan for the sanitary depart
ment to carry out in making this pest
scarce in Ocala. Dr. Watt called at attention
tention attention to a case of typhoid fever in
North Ocala and mentioned that
the house where this case is located is
not connected with the sewerage sys system.

had in North Ocala a $25,000 sewer
age system and to the best of his
knowledge there have been only three
connections made with it to date.
Plans are being made to hasten the
connection with the sewerage system
After applications were read to fill
the various city offices the follownig
were elected: City attorney, F. R.
Hocker; tax collector and treasurer,
W. W. Clyatt; clerk, H. C. Sistrunk.
None of the foregoing had any opposi opposition

applied for by both Elwood Raymond
and H. S. Chambers. Mr. Chambers
was unanimously elected. Superinten Superintendent

McKenzie, and chief of police, Henry
Gordon, also without opposition.
Bids were opened for sidewalks on
North Main and North Sanchez
streets. Mr. Cecil R. Scott had the
lowest bid and was awarded the con contract.
tract. contract. Ordinances were introduced for the
paving of S. Main stret from Fort
King to South Second with asphalt
blocks by the city and for the paving
of Orange street from S. 8th to the
hospital with an 8-inch lime base, 18
feet wide, covered with a two-coat
Tarvia treatment, this work also to be
done by the city. These ordinances
were both recommended for second
Mr. Brumby asked the advice of the
council relative to the parking on
various streets. The street depart department
ment department is now painting lines on various
streets to indicate where parking is
allowed. It was agreed that there
should be no parking on the east side
of Main street between Broadway and
Fort King, on the north side of Fort
King between Magnolia and Osceola
and on the south side of Fort King
from Osceola to Alvarez street. These
parking rules are indicated by white
lines. Where you see no parking stalls
marked off you are not allowed to
park. In addition to this method, no
parking" signs are to be placed where
they may be easily seen.
Mr. Brumby has secured for his files
a complete plat of all the real estate
owned by the city.
A telephone, paid for by the city,
and placed in some central location in
the Tucker Hill settlement for use as
a fire alarm was suggested but it was
decided that it would be cheaper to
install some sort of an electric alarm
there connected with the fire station
This brought about the question of a
regular fire alarm system for the en
tire city and Mr. Brumby was in
structed to get prices on the Gamewell
fire alarm system.
Mr. H. A. Fausett asked that the
council use a Tarvia or oil street on
Broadway west of the S. A. L. cross crossing
ing crossing because the property owners out
there are not able to pay for perma
nent paving. The council told him to
get the property owners to sign a pe
tition to that effect for if it pleased
the owners of property ther it would
suit the council to use that money on
some other street.
Mr. Goldman offered the council
$1100 for the pound lot on West Fort
King and his offer was accepted. This
sum is to be paid, $100 cash, $500 in
September 1922 and $500 in December
1923, with interest on deferred pay payments.

Good Game Will Open the Season
At Hunter Park Tomorrow
(L. T. L)
The games scheduled with Rollins
College to open the baseball season in
Ocala had to be cancelled because the
Rollins team was unable to make the
trip. Secretary Bryant and President
Rose kept the wires hot yesterday in
an effort to schedule some other games
for this .week and found Lake' City
with open dates. Lake City will play
three games here Thursday, Friday
and Saturday.
The ball park is in good shape now
and the team is showing up well. The
practice yesterday indicated that we
have a jam-up infield. Taylor an
nounced the following line-up in bat batting
ting batting order to be used in the first
game: Taylor, ss; Brooks, lb; Lid-
dell, cf; Van Landingham, 3b; Woods,
f; Overstreet, c; Harris, rf: Harold
Smith, 2b; Boswell, p. Leavengood,
Stephens, Home, Brennan, Eddington
and Kirk Smith, substitutes. This
ine-up will be used in tomorrow's
game but is not final. Several of the
men playing the bench tomorrow will
be given a place on the team in other
games in order to give them a try-
Taylor is going good this year. He
snoops them up from the grass and
drags them down from the sky in
regular form. His hitting does not
seem to 'be as strong as it might but
game or two will tell better than
practice. Joe Brooks is as good at
the first end of this season as he was
the last of the 1921 season. His mit

He bats left-handed now).
Van Landingham, the recruit from
Rollins, is playing third and he surely
plays that sack like an old-timer. Van
has the stuff. IH leave it to you
Come look him over and if he isn't the
red hot stuff the drinks are on me.
Harry Woods is in the outfield this
year, not because he isn't a good catch
er, but because the management wants
him to hit the old apple on the nose,
Harry still drives the hot ones along
the third base line. Overstreet is try
ing out for catcher. He played with
Winter Garden during part of last
year and has played with Rollins. He
has a good peg and catches a good
game. If he will connect with the
pill consistently he may rest assured
that he is hired.
Harris at bat. My gosh! See 'that
boy hit! The old timer still has some
two-baggers up his sleeve. Harold
Smith looks good on second. He is
one of our high school boys and has
played ball all over the county. He
is as fast as greased lightning and
hits well. Kirk Smith, our other sec
ond baseman, has some real stuff in
him but his job is interfering with
baseball. It is sincerely hoped by all
the fans that he will be able to ar
range his work so that he can at
least play with the team on the home
diamond. Kirk is a real second base
Boswell beat Yale. Watch him put
the hooks to Lake City. Leavengood
is trying for right field this year. He
is judging flies well and hits consist
ently. Stephens is also out for the
right garden and is a catcher of no
mean ability. Norman Home has the
stuff in his arm this year. He is
real pitcher, iddington is a new
local pitcher. He will work in one of
the three games with Lake City and
we will see what he has. Joe Bren Brennan
nan Brennan is trying for first and has a base
ball head worth a lot to the team.
(L. T. L)
The 1922 baseball season opens to tomorrow
morrow tomorrow afternoon when Lake City
crosses bats with Ocala. Through the
courtesy of the management, all the
school children will be admitted to this
game free of charge. In addition to
making: this concession the baseball
association has issued season tickets
for school children. These tickets will
be on sale at the Monroe & Chambliss
Bank with Dick Stroud and at the
Court Pharmacy; also at the ball park
during games. The price will be $5
and will admit school children from
the ages of 10 to 18. Those under 10
years of age will be admitted free if
accompanied by an adult.
The city has finished laying water
mains and installing new fire pings on



Oklawaha avenue to Torrey street and

is now engaged in putting ina larger
main down North Main street to the
union station plaza. This increase in
the size of the Main street main will
give much better fire protection to

section. As soon as the new main is

It was heaps of fun to be grown up

what the next six months were going
to be like. And I wondered, too, if

when I was a little girl. Mother said;
but I didn't remember her.

and Aunt Jane, too. Of course I knew
she must be Aunt Jane, because she
was with John. The conductor was

hands of Aunt Jane and John. Then
he went back to his train, and the next

The first beginning was a nice
smile, and a "Glad to see ye home,

you do, Mary?" from Aunt Jane. And
I knew right off that first minute that
I wasn't going to like Aunt Jane Just

quite natural, oniy there was a new

either. And, Just as I suspected, 'twas

time the star was the moon an

extra days with her.
Aunt Jane said I was to have my
old room, and so, as soon as I got here,
I went right up and took off my hat
and coat, and pretty quick they
brought up my trunk, and I unpacked
It ; and I didn't hurry about it, either.
I wasn't a bit anxious to get down downstairs

I' may as well own up, I was crying
a little. Mother's room was right
across the hall, and it looked so lone lonesome,

was from the one In Boston, six

Well, at last I had to go down to
dinner I mean supper" and, by the
way, I made another, break on that. I
called it dinner right out loud, and
never thought till I saw Aunt Jane's
"Supper will be ready directly, she
said, with cold and icy emphasis. "And
may I ask you to remember, Mary,
please, that Andersonville has dinner
at noon, not at six o'clock."
"Yes. Aunt Jane," said Mary, po polite

what Marie said inside.)
We didn't do anything in the eve evening
ning evening but read and go to bed at nine
o'clock. I wanted to run over to Car Carrie
rie Carrie Heywood's; but Aunt Jane said
no, not till morning. (I wonder why
young folks never can do things when
they want to do them, but must al always
ways always wait till morning or night or
noon, or some other time!)
' In the morning I went up to the
schoolhouse. I planned it so as to get
there at recess, and I saw all the girls
except one that was sick, and one that
was away. We had a perfectly lovely
time, only everybody was talking all
at once so that I don't know now what
was said. But they seemed glad to see
me. I know that. Maybe 111 go to
school next week. Aunt Jane says
she thinks I ought to, when it's only
the first of May. She's going to speak
to Father when he comes next week.
She was going to speak to him
about my clothes; then she decided to
attend to those herself, and not bother
him. She doesn't like my dresses. She
came into my room and asked tp see
my things. My But didn't I hate, to
show them to her? Marie said she
wouldn't; but Mary obediently trotted
to the closet and brought them out
one by one.
Aunt Jane turned them around with
the tips of her fingers, all the time
sighing and shaking her head. When
Td brought them all out, she shook
her head again and said they would
not do at all not in Andersonville ;
that they were extravagant, and much
too elaborate for a young girl; that
she would see the dressmaker and ar arrange

there, what's the use? I'm Mary now.
I keep forgetting that ; though I don't
see how I can forget it with Aunt
Jane around.
But, listen. A funny thing happened
this morning. Something came up
about Boston, and Aunt Jane asked
me a question. Then she asked an another
other another and another, and she kept me
talking till I guess I talked 'most a
whole half-hour about Grandpa Des Desmond,
mond, Desmond, Aunt Hattie, Mother, and the
house, and what we did, and, oh, a
whole lot of things. And here, Just

But I didn't know it, and I came run running

bounce for the last step. And there,
right in front of me in the hall was
' I guess he was as much surprised
as I was. Anyhow, he acted so. He
Just stood stock-still and stared, his
face turning all kinds of colors.
"You?" he gasped, Just above his
breath. Then suddenly he seemed to
remember. "Why, yes, yes, to be sure.
You are 'here, aren't you? How do
ydu do, Mary?"
He came up then and held out his
hand, and I thought that was all he

was going to do. But, after a funny
little hesitation, he stooped and kissed
my forehead. Then he turned and
went into the library with very quick
steps, and I didn't see him again till
at the supper-table.
At the supper-table he said again,
"How do you do, Mary?" Then he
seemed to forget all about me. At
least he didn't say anything more to
me; for three or four times, when
glanced up, I found him looking at me.
But Just as soon as I looked back at
him he turned his eyes away and
cleared his throat, and began to eai
or to talk to Aunt Jane.
After dinner1 I mean supper he
went out to the observatory, Just as
he always used to. Aunt Jane said
her head ached and she was going to
bed. I said I guessed I would step
over to Carrie Heywood's; but Aunt
Jane said, certainly not; that t was
much too young to be running around
nights in the dark. Nights And it was
only seven o'clock, and not dark at
all 1 But of course I couldn't go.
Aunt Jane went upstairs, and I was
left alone. I didn't feel a bit like
reading; besides, there wasn't a book
or a magazine anywhere asking you
to read. They Just shrieked, "Touch
me not !" behind the glass doors in the
library. I hate sewing. I mean Marie
hates it. Aunt Jane says Mary's got
to learn.
For a time I Just walked around the
different rooms downstairs, looking at
the chairs and tables and rugs all Just
so, as if they'd been measured with a
yardstick. Marie Jerked up a shade
and pushed a chair crooked and kicked
a rug up at one corner; but Mary put
them all back properly so there
wasn't any fun in that for long.
After a while I opened the parlor
door and peeked in. They used to
keep it open when Mother was here;
but Aunt Jane doesn't use It. I knew
where the electric push button was,
though, and I turned on the light.
Before I got the light on, the chairs
and sofas loomed up like ghosts in
their linen covers. And wba the

light did come og, 1 saw that all the
old shiver places were there. Not one
was missing. Great Grandfather An Anderson's
derson's Anderson's coffin plate on black velvet,
the wax cross and flowers that had
been used at. three Anderson funerals,
the hair wreath made of all the hair
of seventeen dead Andersons and five
live ones no, no, I don't mean all the
hair, but hair from all seventeen and
five. Nurse Sarah used to tell me
about it.
Well, as I said, all the shiver places
were there, and I shivered again as I
looked at them ; then I crossed over to
Mother's old piano, opened "it, and
touched the keys. I love to play.
There wasn't any music there, but I
dont need music for lots of my pieces.
I know them by heart only they're all
gay and lively, and twinkly-toe dancy.
Marie music I don't know a one that
would be proper for Mary to play.
But I was Just tingling to play some something,
thing, something, and I remembered that Father
was in the observatory, and Aunt Jane
upstairs in the other part of the house
where she couldn't possibly hear. So
I began to play. I played the very
slowest piece I had, and I played
softly at first; but I know I forgot,
and I know I hadn't played two nloceei

I Was Having the Best Time Ever,
