of the Palatka lan3 the Wildcats have
captured another game from their fa famous

claim that the Pals have a better team
than the Wildcats. In yesterday's
game Fisher went into the box for

the Pals. Both pitchers let up nine
hits but the final score showed that
Ocala had five runs behind Fisher
while Epp's assistants had only given
him three runs.
Ocala was strongly represented in
the stands. It is estimated that at
least 150 of the Wildcats' loyal fans
were present at the game. The Palat Palatka

not play many selections. It is not

they will have tied the series for the
season. If Ocala wins either or both

revenue from this source will approxi approximately

75 per cent goes to the state road de department

turned back to the various counties, in

from each county. There is but one
exception to this rule. By t special
act of the last legislature Monroe

Three weeks later, Robert Fairchild j
sat In the smoking compartment of;
the Overland Limited, looking at the!
Rocky mountains in the distance. In
his pocket were a few hundred dol-;
lars; L. the bank in Indianapolis a
few thousand, representing the final
proceeds of the sale of everything that
had connected him with a rather
dreary past. Out before him
Three weeks had created a meta metamorphosis

which did not extend beyond his led ledgers
gers ledgers and his gloomy home but now a
man leaning his head against the win window

toward the Rockies and the rainbow

and protecting as though over myste mysteries

"Certainly. No use spending that
money if you've got a little pep, and
it isn't a matter of life or death. Go

Golden. That eats up fifteen miles
and leaves just twenty-three miles
more. Then ask somebody to point
out the road over Mount Lookout.
Machines go along there every few
minutes no trouble at all to catch a
ride. You'll be in Ohadi in no time."
Fairchild obeyed the instructions,
and in the baggage room rechecked his
trunk to follow him, lightening his
traveling bag at the same time until
it carried only necessities. A lunch luncheon,
