OCALA, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20. 1922
History of An Ocala FirmiMacKay & Company's New Home

Cy i

From Small Begining This Firm Has Risen to
One of Central Florida's Leading Business
Houses.

For almost thirty years, the firm of
George MacKay & Company, former formerly
ly formerly Mclver & MacKay, has been
one of the industrial and commer commercial
cial commercial bulwarks of Ocala and Marion
county. Mr. MacKay, indisputably the
leading architect of Marion county
and a considerable amount of the
country around it, also a contractor
and builder, gathered around him
many men skilled in construction, and
the number of structures, from a tiny
cottage to a great public building or
gigantic industrial plant, that they
have erected during all those years is
almost too great to estimate. Joining
business resources with the skilled un undertaker,
dertaker, undertaker, D. E. Mclver, the firm
branched out into the furniture and
hardware business, and also began to
supply other building contractors with
the materials they used themselves.
Auxiliary tho smaller lines came in
like tributaries to a river, courtesy,
strict faith and business honor gov governed
erned governed all the dealings of the firm, and
its establishment grew from two
modest store rooms and a warehouse
to more buildings than could be hived
on a city block, while its operations
reached out not only over Marion
county but all this part of the state.
The combined business of the firm
began thirty years or more ago in a
warehouse for building supplies, etc.,
alongside the tracks of the Florida
Railroad and Navigation Company
(row the Seaboard Air Line Railway)
and next to its freight and passenger
station, now its freight depot. A lit little
tle little later the firm came up town and
put a stock of furniture in the store
room in the then Miller block, (now
occupied by Green's drugstore) on
North Magnolia street, across the
street from the Baptist church. This
place was not long large enough for
Hhe firm's increasing trade, and it re removed
moved removed into the store a few doors
south, previously occupied by the
grocery firm of Birdsey & Sons. At
that time, the west side of Magnolia
at that point was filled from the Miller
block to the Thompson block (now
Parker & Guynn's store, by three one one-story
story one-story brick stores. One of these had
been two up to 1894, when it was
opened into one, to make room for the
Birdseys. Mr. MacKay and his part partner
ner partner had not been long in this location
before they found it necessary to re remodel
model remodel it and put on a second story,
the center of which was used as a
salesroom, while reserve goods were
stored on the sides and in the corners.
They bought for their undertaking de department
partment department a small brick block adjacent
to the northwest of their property. In
a few years they had purchased two two-thirds
thirds two-thirds of the land on the block, and
put up two large iron-sheathed ware warehouses.
houses. warehouses. One of these, full of goods,
was burned about eight years ago, but
was replaced and refilled in a few
months. Then the firm purchased the
store next to it on the north, cutting
a wide connecting door thru the wall,
and moved its stock of hardware into
it. About 1907, a neat chapel was
built in the front rooms of the under undertaking
taking undertaking department building. The pic picture
ture picture framing department was in the
second story of this building. From
this building over to the main store
was a bridge, on which was located
the comparatively small but largely
important offices devoted to the ar architects
chitects architects and draftsmen. To this de department,
partment, department, Mr. MacKay always gave
his particular, personal attention.
The foregoing is a brief but compre comprehensive
hensive comprehensive and tolerably accurate sketch
of the establishment as it existed up
to February 17 last. Not expecting a
fire, the writer had not made any
plans and specifications, and is mak making
ing making this description from memory, but
as he rambled over almost the entir3
establishment once or twice a week
for years he believes he is reasonably
correct.
THE BIG FIRE
As the MacKay firm had added
from time to time to its space, it had
carefully put in the best protection
obtainable, and as it tried to keep only
careful men on its payroll, it had a
right to consider itself reasonably safe
from fire. However, man has never
' yet built a structure where men can
live and work that the fire demon
can't find a weak place in. This was
again proven on the morning of Sat Saturday,
urday, Saturday, Feb. 18, 1922, when after a
stubborn battle of over two hours, by

the fire department and hundreds of
neighbors against the flames, there

was nothing left but smoking ruins
where the day before had stood the
great mercantile establishment of
George MacKay & Company.
STAYED ON THE JOB
Back of the main building, cut off
from them by a few, mighty few,
yards of open space, stood two big
warehouses, their walls sheathed in
iron. On these walls the firemen sent
all the water they could spare from
the main fire, and altho the interior
of the buildings was unbearably hot,
and the wooden frames smoked, the
slender iron sheathing guarded its
trust, and when the flames died down
the warehouses, blackened and blister blistered,
ed, blistered, were there with contents intact.
It wasn't long after breakfast before
signs were up, directing MacKay &
Company's customers to their new
stand, corner of West Washington and
North Orange streets, and at 9 p. m.
the firm closed its doors for the night,
after a reasonably good day's busi business.
ness. business. The stock in the warehouses was
made up mostly of staple goods, but
the more delicate articles needed were
ordered and promptly delive ?d. The
skilled draftsmen procured tneir nec necessary
essary necessary supplies and set up shop in a
corner in a good light and, tho under
a baking sheet of iron that would
have made a salamander sweat, went
on drawing plans and making con contracts.
tracts. contracts. "Business as usual" pervaded
the premises, and soon Orange street
was almost as crowded as Magnolia.
REBUILDING
Work of clearing away the burned
buildings began as soon as the broken
brick and twisted metal were cool

enough to touch. Mr. MacKay had
his new building planned while smoke
and steam were yet going up from the
ruins of the old. About three weeks
and the space was swept as clean as a
dancing floor. On March 15, rebuild-

ir.g began and on August 15, five
months later, the main building "was
finished".
The building for the undertaking
department was completed sooner. On
May 12 it was finished, and being
intended for that purpose alone, it
was much better looking and equipped
than the one whose place it took.
While Mr. MacKay was rebuilding

his own establishment he was recon recon-i
i recon-i r-tructing the stores to the north and
south of it, which tho badly damaged
were not completely destroyed as his
was. However, when the wreckage
was cleared away, there was little to
rebuild from; also, the owners wanted
more uptodate structures to take the
; place of the old. the building to the
north, the property of J. J. Gerig, was

reconstructed in sixty days and is
ever so much better adapted to the use
of the Ocala Tire '& Vulcanizing Co.,

j that occupies it. The two-story store

t the south, belonging to Mrs. J. E.
Chace, almost entirely rebuilt, the
elegant dry goods store of Parker &
Guynn, was finished in ninety days.
COMING BACK HOME
Four or five weeks ago, MacKay &
Company, finding their newly ordered
goods stacking up on them, and with
most of the floor and counter space in

I their new building available, com com-j
j com-j menced to move back into it, opened
the doors and began selling such ar

ticles as they had, which made a con considerable
siderable considerable stock, tho small in compari comparison
son comparison with what was to come. Ever
since the goods have been coming in
and being put in place, until it looks
to a casual observer that the store
was full. But there, were a great
many more articles needed to round
the stock out to symmetry. These
have arrived and are being put in
place, and all is now in readiness for
the formal opening, Saturday, Octo October

THE GREAT STORE AND STOCK

The portion of MacKay & Com Company's

the most acquainted with will be the
immense store room on the first floor.
This not only because it contains the
articles most in demand, but because
of its elaborate displays in the big
windows in front. MacKay & Com Company

their forces, and these boys, as has

been demonstrated in the old store,

goods in a show window and arrange
it so that the only thing that keep
people from buying is absolute ab absence

Why "French" High Heels.
It Is said that Louis XVI appeared
In court wearing high wooden heels o
his shoes. He was not a tall man, and
adopted this expedient to make him himself
self himself regally impressive. The term
French heel was applied to high heela
and finally to a certain type of high
heel.

Right Idea of "Drudgery.'
The secret of success still lies In
the same old word, "drudgery." For
drudgery is the doing of one thing, on
thing, one thing, long after It ceases t
be amusing; and it is this "one thing"
I do that gathers me together from my
chaos, that concentrates me from po po-Hblllties

When You Buy Paint

Consider it costs less to paint than it does to build or repair. Paint is cheaper than lum.
ber, tin, iron, steel, or repair bills. The use of good paint is not an expense but economy
When you buy paint, don't allow a trivial difference in price to cause you to lose sight of
true economy. A low price per gallon does not necessarily mean a low price job. It
frequently means the most expensive job.
The use of cheap paint means more gallons for the job more frequent painting
more labor cost disappointment and dissatisfaction; while the use of good paint, the best
you can get, means less gollons for the job, less frequent painting, less labor costs, a sav saving
ing saving at every step.
GAYCO Paint is made for this climate. It always works better, goes further, looks bet better,
ter, better, wears longer. From beginning to end, it is the most economical and most satisfactory.

This vault is more for a security

of course, keeps its money in banks,

The English-speaking population of

of the United States is Hj,OS3,I0S.
There are significant conclusions to be
drawn from these figures, which show
us to exceed In numbers, by about 00
per cent all other English-speaking
peoples put together. Since we are
well in the van as to literacy, and oc occupy

it is not too much to expect that with within
in within a decade we may become the largest

Ingenious Scheme Failed.

When I was In the seventh grade at j

Bcnool, relates a correspondent of the
Chicago Journal, there were two girls
I thought I was in love with, but I
could not decide which one I liked
best. So one day I thought I would
write each a nice love letter exactly
the same and I would then choose the
one who answered the most favorably.
But when they got their letters, each
let the other know, so as to make her
Jealous. I wrote each again, but I
got no reply at all.

One of the most touching incidents

j that has come to light for a long while
I Is the gift of in Roumanian lei

i Bucharest have contributed to "aid
I the children of families made destitute
j by the destruction of the Knicker Knicker-,

i is hard to realize fully the outlook of
j such children, when compared with the
i outlook of the children in the United
States, with all the hitter's manifold

advantages, but it is easy to see how
reports of the theater's collapse can
have been magnified in their eyes until
they believed that the event constitut constituted
ed constituted a disaster affecting the whole Amer American

who had been helped by American
children wanted to help them in re return

STORY OF THE BIG FIRE

George MacKay & Company Suffered
The Greatest Loss, But Other Firms
Were Also Heavy Losers.

of how desperate a fight was wagea
to check a conflagration that for an
hour or two threatened to burn the
business heart out of Ocala.
About 4:15 this morning an alarm
called the fire department to the stores
and warehouses of George MacKay &
Company on North Magnolia street.
When it arrived, the interior of the
furniture department was a raging
furnace. Chief Raymond saw at once
that he and his helpers could not save
the store, and immediately bent every
effort to prevent the fire spreading, in
which, after a long, fierce battle they
succeeded, but not until MacKay's
main building and one warehouse
were entirely destroyed, and the ad adjoining

the fire from the warehouse right In
the rear of the store, and when tne
blaze once entered this building it
went right thru it to the chapel fac facing

Policeman Morgan and a colored
taxi driver were talking at the Mas Masters
ters Masters corner about 4:10 when they
smelled smoke. They started in op opposite
posite opposite directions to hunt the cause.
jThe police officer located the fire and
at once sent in the alarm, which the
department responded to in lightning
time.
The fire fighters saw at once that
they would need more help and sent
to the station for the bell to be rung
for the fifth ward and had car3 run
all over town shouting fire. Central
also helped by ringing phone after
phone and asking the men to come I
and help. Calls for help were also sent I
to Gainesville and Leesburg.
In a few minutes hundreds and soon
thousands of people were on the scene,
the more able-bodied men fighting
the fire; others, with women and even
children, helping to carry goods and
furniture out of the threatened busi
ness establishments. So zealously did i
they work at this that in a compara
tively short time nearly all the stores
were emptied of their contents, which
were piled on the courthouse and post post-office
office post-office squares.
There was certainly noble work
done; not only in labor but in risk.
However, the only accident was the
fall of Mr. Arch Shealy. He was up
on one of the second story platforms
cutting away some wood work that
would spread the fire when his plat platform
form platform was burned from under him. He
fell into some tangled timbers, tin
and brick, and received a bruised bacfc
! and leg. When the boys reached him
to carry him out he was stunned and
unable to speak, but he soon regained
his faculties and is now all right.
Noticeable among the workers were
the Boy Scouts. They were on the
job early and did work out of all pro proportion
portion proportion to their size and age.
The fire chief complains that the
water pressure at first was low, but
later on the weight increased until
four powerful streams were playing
on the fire.
It is a great wonder that the sheet sheet-iron
iron sheet-iron warehouses on the rear of the
block did not also catch fire. Their
windows cracked and their plates
were red-hot in places, but they held.
By sunrise the battle was won, and
the weary fighters leaned on thetr
arms, or rather against whatever was
handy, and rested a few minutes be before

Wore His Antagonist Out.

big rooster after him. Then, when the
big bird was out of breath, the little
one turned on him and whipped him la

detach itself from brick. This can be
avoided by applying Vitrified Wall
Coping on top of all your building

Easy to Keep Clean

Particular housewives prefer Vollrath Ware
because it can be kept perfectly clean with so
little effort.

The residue from cooking that clings tightly
to utensils of bare metal, washes easily off
smooth, non-porous Vollrath Ware.
The odors are not absorbed. When Vollrath
Ware has been washed and dried, it is as clean
and pure as the day you bought it.
That means better tasting, more hygienic
cooking and a healthier family.

Sold Exclusively By
Geo. MacKay & Company
The Vollrath Company Sheboygan, Wis.

Gus" Packerson Lasker Augustus

his employers, Mclver & MacKay and

credit to his race. No company ever

had a more loyal and faithful employe.

36 years ago, he started with Mr.

work and for nearly 25 years has been
