"the most stupendous engineering

In the meatnime, the plans for the

will require several years work. Many

At a meeting at Reddick fifteen
miles north of Ocala, on the Atlantic Atlantic-Coast

were made to establish a bank. The
officers elected were as follows: J.

name of the bank is to be "The Red Reddick

Reddick is one of the most solid lit little

in fertility anywhere. Reddick is a
quiet little home town, not taking up
much space in the world but a splen splendid

all the same. It has plenty of busi
ness for a bank.
The Star is glad to know Reddick
is going to have a bank of its own
and to note what a fine set of men the
staff will be composed of. Ocala,
however, will be sorry to lose Mr. and
Mrs. J. B. Horrell. Mrs. Horrell is

The following from the Country
Gentleman gives the views of Herbert
Hoover, secretary of commerce, on
co-operative marketing, and why it
should receive universal support:
"Co-operative marketing associa associations

waste; and by increasing his income,
they raise the standard of living of
the co-operator who is a member of
the organization. Unless a co-operative
can accomplish these things, there
is no proper field for that particular
"The notion has been advanced that
these organizations are of a socialistic
type. This is rank nonsense. They
are the exact antithesis of socialism.
No man is a member of a co-operative
marketing association except to get
more for what he sells or to pay less
for what he buys. This is individual individualism.

from joint action by the producers

to the business done for each producer
by the association and in accordance
with the quality of his product. In this
essential way they differ from joint joint-stock

profits or benefits upon the basis of
the capital stock subscribed.
"They should receive the support of

such, deserve the same consideration

"Co-operatives have no right to ask
anything but the right to do business
as business organizations and along
strict business lines. The biggest
problem of the co-operative marketing
association is to secure cohesion in
direction where so many partners are
involved, to develop skill in adminis administration,

for the failure of ordinary forms of

"Personally, I think the principles

Pretty Dorothy Gordon pressed her
pretty fare r gainst the window pane
and looked through the gusts of rain
and sleet to the swollen river some
little distance beyond the house.
It was a wild night. The river had
risen steadily since morning and now
spread in the distance, a rain-swept,
ugly, moody late whose farther shore
was lost in the darkness of the early
twilight. The river bade fair to be up
to the house by midnight.
Dorothy shivered slightly as she

Howard Freeman, her sweetheart,
who was immured In an office building
on the other side of the river. Some
moments ago Howard had telephoned
that the building was surrounded by
water and that he was leaving by a
rowboat. Dorothy had pleaded with
him to let her come for him In the
motorboat but he had refused. Per Perhaps
haps Perhaps now, at this very moment, he was
getting into the rowboat. Of course
there was no danger, but the current

the river was filled with floating logs

To Dorothy, who had lived there by
the river all her life, the flood was a
normal occurrence. Every year the
river overflowed its banks not as ex extensively

course, but enough to familiarize those
people who lived near the stream with
the characteristics of flood time. So

as she herself was concerned. It was

she was and not come out to him. He

about the sincerity with which he had
And yet Dorothy came to a sudden
resolution. She swung back into the

"I'm going out in the boat," she
cried to her stepmother, the only other
occupant of the house, who was sway swaying

Fortunately the launch started at

which had moored the boat close to
the house in a little bayou made by
the advancing waters, and switching
on the searchlight, started up stream
against the swift current for the office

looking for the rowboat.
On the instant came a grinding

Terror caught at Dorothy's heart.
She shifted the searchlight quickly
up and down the swollen stream.
There, already past her, down the
stream by a hundred yards the row row-boat
boat row-boat burst into view in the blaze from
Dorothy's searchlight. It was low in
the water. Both Howard and Alice
were standing up. The sound of an
agonized shriek came to Dorothy.
Then, quite suddenly, the boat sank

Fairly sobbing in her excitement
and anxiety, Dorothy spun the steer steering

at once, crashing and pushing Its way
through the debris in a wide arc.
Could she get to Howard and the
girl in time?
As the boat straightened out with
the down-stream current it fairly shot
ahead. Away In the distance the
searchlight disclosed the bobbing
heads of Howard and the girl. Alice
was to the left, Howard to the right.
They were both about the same dis distance

It seemed ages to Dorothy, but It
was really only a moment or so until
she was between the two. As she

searchlight to the left disclosing Alice

from the boat. Again Dorothy swung
the steering wheel. The boat staggered
a bit from the Impact of logs and

But what was Alice doing?

Dorothy with eyes in which a great

"I saw it all," said Howard, weakly.

Gilbert A. Youngberg,
Lieut.-Col., Corps of Enginers,
' Eustis, Oct. 19. Jim Goode, who
for twenty-four years has sailed
( Florida waters and who is regarded
t as probably one of the best informed
Florida fishermen, declares he is as
i certain as if he had seen it done that
I the fish which attacked Miss Dorothy
McClatchie off St. Petersburg with
fatal results during the summer was
a sawfish. Miss McClatchie and Miss
Mary Buhner were swimming a mile
off the end of the pier, in Tampa Bay,
when the attack occurred, the fish
lacerating the girl's leg, and she died
from the shock and loss of blood be before
fore before a boat picked them up.
Goode, in the current issue of the
Florida Fisherman, published by
Rube Allyn, said he had sailed and
motored over Tampa Bay for nearly a
quarter of a century and that he knew
the bay immediately off St. Peters Petersburg
burg Petersburg was a favorite place for sawfish
"You will not see them passing in a
motor launch," he writes, "but go by
as I have done many times in a sail sailing
ing sailing vessel and you will see them.
Now, the sawfish is not vicious. They
will not attack anything, but lie
asleep often near the surface of the
water practically motionless. But
just touch one, and with a speed that
is quicker than sight, it will swirl its
saw and strike and cut with marvel marvelous
ous marvelous rapidity, wood or anything else
that touches it.
"Now, my theory is that the young
lady was swimming along and just
happened to touch one of these fish
with her foot or leg, and it gave a
quick swirl of its saw and cut her
leg, afterwards sinking to the bot bottom,
tom, bottom, the way they do.

once it got the taste or smell of blood,

because I have never known of a bar barracuda

"But I know sawfish do sleep off

Clatchie." McClatchie." It never has been determined what
kind of a marine monster attacked
Miss McClatchie but it is the general
belief in St. Petersburg that it was
a barracuda. Others hold the theory
that the fish was a shark but those
who disagree declare if a shark had
made the attack it certainly would
have returned to the attack because
of the presence of blood which flow flowed

that every one he has questioned, be believes

N. Magnolia St. THEUS BROTHERS
(By K. C. Moore, County Agent)
In an article in the October issue of
the World's Work by John K. Barnes
occurs this very pertinent and strik striking
ing striking statement: "But there is an enor enormous
mous enormous loss each year in perishable pro products
ducts products because of market gluts and be because
cause because the middle men prefer to buy buy-part
part buy-part of a crop at low prices and sell
for high rather than buy all of a crop
and have to sell it for less."
Of course that .refers to every other
part of the United States except to
Marion county; and to all other buy buyers
ers buyers except those who buy here and to
any other crop than tomatoes. But
still we find fresh tomatoes now sold
in Ocala, shipped from some other
parts that would never grade in any
of our packing houses above fancy;
and car loads of better tomatoes than
these were hauled from our packing
houses as culls and dumped to rot.
One grower, whose name can be
furnished, told the writer that he
shipped his culls the past season in
dependently and got more from them
than he got for the selected tomatoes
he sent to the packing houses, where
he had contracted to deliver them.
There may not be any such thing
as alchemy or magic these days, but
it is most remarkable how farm pro products
ducts products change as soon as they get out
of the producer's hands. They sud suddenly
denly suddenly seem to have a definite, more
stable market value. If I were a
broker and wanted canned tomatoes
here is the way I would go about get
ting them. I would go to a cannery
and say to the owner: "I'll buy all
your canned tomatoes if you will sign
a contract to deliver them to me at
30 cents a case. (They average selling
at 70c. a case). They are to be all of
highest grade and I will be the judge
of their grade. IH let you have coal
to operate with at the market price
(I expect to buy at 20 per cent less),
and I will advance you $10 on every
hundred cases, with interest at 8 per
cent. You pay all operating expenses,
buy the tomatoes and take all risk."
That owner would ask me if I
thought he was a d f ; or he
would kick me out or do both. This
illustration is similar to our system
of selling tomatoes, and yet it is dif different.
ferent. different. It is told that in another section of
Florida the growers are "furnished1
seed (on which the furnisher makes
a profit and charges an interest on
the amount); they are "furnished"
fertilizer (on which the furnisher
makes $5 or more a ton and charges
interest); they are "furnished" con containers
tainers containers for the product on which the
furnisher makes 10c apiece and also
charges interest; they are furnished
spray material and some money to
work and harvest the crop and pay
interest on this. The furnisher then
sells the crop for the farmer on com commission,
mission, commission, or takes it on the contract.
In the meantime most oi me iarmers
have furnished some bank with a
mortgage on the farm, so as to make
ends meet and provide himself a
place in which to live.
Our tomato growers are working
under this system or some modifica modification
tion modification of it. So far it is the best thing
that has been developed for them. It
will not bo long till they will market
their tomatoes through some kind of
exchange cf their own.
