- Says the Tampa Tribune: The
grand jury of Marion county, evident
ly having conquered the world about
it, like Alexander the Great, sighed
for other worlds, and then tackled the :
city administration. In its last pre-'
sentment as published in the Ocala
Star we. find it saying:
"We have investigated the matter
of the administration of the city of
Ocala, and find thatin many instances
bills are paid on the approval of the
city manager, without first being ap
proved by the city council in 'open
session.' we have also in
vestigated the matter of certain ru
mors about the irregularities of pav paving
ing paving contracts We find
that the city has a regular employed
consulting engineer, but that such en
gineer has not' been on the job
t& We are of the opinion, etc.?
Since when has it become the prov
ince of the grand jury to investigate
the "administration", of cities? Can
it bring a "true bill" against the city
The city of Ocala is governed by a
charter which specifically provides
the government shall function. That
charter provides for a city manager,
and to him is left the detail matters
of bill paying. It was for the express
purpose of putting these details upon
some specific person that the manager
form of government was perfected.
The Ocala Star rightly says. that:.
"Unless the grand jury has reason
to believe some official is dishonest or
is breaking the law, the government
of the city is none of its business."
i If it is within the jurisdiction of the
grand jury to run a civic administra
Hon; if it is within its power to die
tate .the methods of working in a
municipality, we may as well abolish
all forms of city government and turn
them over directly to the grand jury.

Finding that I bad still some leisure
before me, I got a book from my room
and repaired to the bench In the gar garden.

opened the book when my attention
was arrested by sounds from the other
side of the high fence low and trem tremulous
ulous tremulous croonlngs of distinctly African
derivation :
"Ah met man alstub In a-mawnln',
One 'uz a-wagrgln' up de hill so slow!
'SlBtuh, you mus' git a raj tie In doo time,

It was the voice of an aged negro;
and the simultaneous slight creaking
of a small hub and axle seemed- to in indicate
dicate indicate that he was pushing or pulling
a child's wagon or perambulator up
and down the walk from the kitchen
door to the stable. Whiles, he prof proffered
fered proffered soothing music: over and over
he repeated the chant, though with va
rlatlons; encountering in turn his
brother, his daughter, each of his par parents,
ents, parents, his uncle, his cousin, and his
second-cousin, one after the other
ascending the same slope with the
same perilous, leisure.
"Lay still, honey.- He interrupted
his injunctions to the second-cousin.
Des keep on a-nappln. an' a-breavln
de fesh air. Dass wha's go mek you
good an well agin."
Then there spoke the strangest
voice that ever fell upon my ear; it
was not like a child's, neither was it
like a very old person's voice ; it might
have been a grasshopper's. It was so
thin and little, and made of such tiny
wavers and quavers and creakings.
"I want said this elfin voice, "I
want-rBIH Hammersley !"
s The shabby car which had passed my
cousin's house was drawing up to the
curb near Beasley's gate. Evidently
the. old negro saw it. :

The small wagon creaked away, the
chant resuming as it went.
Mr., Dowden jumped out of the car
with a wave of his hand tq the driver,
peasley himself, who drove through his
open carriage-sates and down the
drive on the other side of the house,
where he was lost to my view.

land or in the waters under theearth.
I gave account, also, of the miraculous
jumping contest (though I did not
mention Miss Apperthwaite's having
been with me), and of the elfin voice
I had just now overheard demanding
Bill Hammersley."
"So I expect you must have decid decided,"

"that David Beasley has gone just

. "Not a bit of it. Nobody could look

"You're right there!" said Dowden,

there Is to it. You see, Dave grew
up with a cousin of his named Ham Hamilton

went to the same school, and then to
college. I don't believe there was ever
a high word spoken between them.
Nobody in this life ever got a quarrel
out of Dave Beasley, and Hamilton
Swift was a mighty good sort of a fel fellow,
low, fellow, too. He went East to live, after
they got out df college, yet they al always

year, generally about Christmas time.
You couldn't pass them on the street
without hearing their laughter ringing
out louder than the sleigh-bells, may maybe
be maybe over some old joke between them,
or some fool thing they did, perhaps,
when they were boys. But finally
Hamilton Swift's business took him
over -to the other side of the water to

about seven years ago. Well, sir, this
last summer he and his wife were tak

they were both drowned tipped over

and word came that Hamilton Swift's

one child they had, a little boy Ham

was sent across the ocean In charge
of a doctor, and Dave went on to New
