FRIEND OF FLORID V
Owing probably to the close per personal
sonal personal acquaintance of its editor with
this state, that great trade journal,
the Manufacturers' Record, has be become
come become a special friend of Florida.
Every issue of the magazine, which is
a steady but conservative booster for
alL worthy development, contains
more or less interesting information
about the state, which is a policy
that does us a lot of good. Knowing
its high reputation, people who are
inclined to be suspicious of "boost "boosting"
ing" "boosting" in many other publications, al always
ways always pay attention to what they see
in the Manufacturers' Record.
In the issue of Oct. 21, we find a
page and a half devoted to an article
entitled "Peninsular and Sub-Peninsular
Air and Climates, with Special
Reference to Florida."
It is made up of extracts from a
paper read by Dr. Van Bibber, a not noted
ed noted physician, before the American
Medical Association in 1885. Even
thirty, years ago, the advantages of
our state were so apparent that this
article, in the light of subsequent
events, reads today like prophecy. In
another place is two-thirds of a page
I on the harbor development of Miami,
and finally a letter by Wm. T. Kuhri
of Houston, Tex., on Florida climate,
which is as follows:
"The two articles dealing with cli
matical and other advantages of
Florida, which appear in the Manu
facturers' Record of October 7,' have
been of considerable interest to me
and no doubt to hundreds of other
natives of that state, and I take the
liberty of affirming that what is stat
ed therein is the truth, for as a native
of the state I know something about
its climate and commercial advan
tages. I have been in California as
well as other western 'states, and I
know that the climate of Florida is
more congenial than that of Call
f ornia. The summer of Southern
California is one of extreme heat dur

hotter places in the United States
than are to be found in Southern Cal
ifornia. I have been from coast to
coast, on the plains and into the
mountains, and I have yet to find any
section of the country where the cli
mate, winter and summer, is as
equable as that of Florida. In Cali California

as sinking the Lusitania, but is fully
as black in proportion.

SEEING OCALA FIRST
Editor Star": We used to call it
Lake Clark, after the first settler who
ventured into the wilderness and built
himself a home on its shore, but it is
commonly known as "The lake at the
foot of Fourth and Sanchez." The
name is too long and as our lake has
become a permanent adornment of the
landscape, it devolves on the city
fathers to find an appropriate name,
one that is short and full of meaning.

go to the Himalayas or the river of

Newton saw the apple fall in his or orchard
chard orchard and discovered the law of gra
vitation. So, when I noticed a most
interesting scum forming on the lake,
brown of color, iridescent and turning
a bloody red under the slanting rays
of the evening sun, the question arose
in my mind, is this scum the product
of decaying vegetable matter, driven
up by gases formed in the alluvium,
or does it consist of growing plants.
A close microscopical scrutiny reveal revealed
ed revealed the presence of numerous varie
ties of aquatic plants called algae,
one of which in particular seems to be
responsible for the brown color.- .All
of them are forming a dense mass of
vegetation which is making an ideal
hiding place and giving ample pastur
age to great numbers of the larvae of
Anopheles. s u
As Anopheles in every day parlance
means mosquito, it can not be sur surprising
prising surprising that these interesting insects
are not only numerous but also larger
ferocious and strong of voice on the
shores of the lake. They are appar apparently
ently apparently closely related to the famous
New Jersey variety.
While the lake is furnishing us all
the opportunities f or. experimental
breeding, there is no need for us to
use the old tin can, half full of water,
and forgotten on the premises, rec
ommended for breeding purposes by
the Board of Health.

Yes, our lake is giving rise to all
kinds of puzzling questions and is
promoting intellectuality in our neigh
borhood. A lawyer is trying to solve
the agricultural problem: how to
raise cabbage under stagnant water,
while another neighbor is the author
of a legal puzzle: is it possible to re recover
cover recover damages from the city in case
you were stricken with typhoid or
malaria fever. Which hypothetical
question I hereby respectfully submit
to the legal lights of this community.
Sometimes our spirits are inclined
to levity. So I have proposed a bet to
one of my neighbors, that our lake
will not be drained until his son, now
two months old, will enter high school.
My neighbor is young and enthus enthusiastic,

but this risk was too great for him.

Ocala Knights Entertained the Lady
Members of the Order
If you want to, meet with a real
disappointment just attend one of the
Ocala Knights of Pythias meetings
with the expectation that there won't
be a big time when the word is pass

committee that there will be.
Monday evening's meeting at Cas
tle Hall was no exception to this rule,
when the Knights entertained for the
Pythian Sisters and the other ladies.
The guests were welcomed by
Judge William Gober, grand outer
guard of the state grand lodge in a
short speech. Beautiful piano music
was furnished by Miss Ethel Hay Hay-craft,

After the literary portion of the
evening's program was completed re

committee who had this feature in
charge. Three kinds of sandwiches,
pickles, punch, etc., were served. The

furnished music during the banquet.
After refreshments had been serv

excellent order is founded. Ster-

Gober followed the scenes with a de description

SLIGHTED A HERO.
Later on the Coaching Party Got
a Startling Surprise.
A HOST WHO PROVED A SNOB.
He Thought His Guest Was Not Classy
Enough to Travel With Him and Hicr
Friends, but Waked Up After Awhile
to Find Him the Lion of the Day.
Here is one of Captain Jayies A.
Scrymser's best anecdotes, which he
did wot put in his volume of iersona!
reminiscences of peace and war:
After the close "of the war between
the states in 1SG5 Secretary of War
Stanton, at the suggestion of President
Johnson, selected Major General Fran
cis C. Barlow as the bearer of certain
dispatches to the American minister
Mr. Adams, in London It later de
veloped that the main purpose of this
mission was to allow the English army
officials to know Major General Bar Barlow,
low, Barlow, he being deemed by the president
and secretary of war an excellent
specimen of a youthful volunteer gen
eral who had served gallantly through throughout
out throughout the war.
General Barlow sailed for England
with his official dispatches, and short shortly
ly shortly after his arrival he was presented
to the Duke of Cambridge, then com commander
mander commander in chief t of her majesty's
forces, by Mr. Adams, our minister,
and likewise to other high military
Of course General Barlow received
many invitations and was able to
accept but few. One invitation which
he did accept was for a week end
party at the .bouse of a well known
major general of the British army, re residing
siding residing a few miles from Aldershot
On his arrival Barlow found a very
gay house party, made op of distin distinguished
guished distinguished social 'lions and lionesses.'
I have not the slightest doubt that
Barlow held his own in this distin distinguished
guished distinguished company, although these high
army officials of her majesty's serv service
ice service evidently drew a sharp line be between
tween between volunteer and regular officers.
This fact Barlow fully realized the
Saturday morning after his arrival,
when,-much to his surprise, his host
and ultra exclusive house guests de departed
parted departed for a drive" in a four-in-hand
coach, leaving General Barlow behind.
No Invitation had been extended to
Barlow, and he ..was left alone on the
piazza, being, i told by :hl3 hospitable
host that there were a box of cigars
and the London Times, in the smoking
room, which would keep him fairly
well occupied until their return.
Thfe coaching party had been absent
about an hour when a ttoop of cavalry:
commanded by a ; British officer. ; halted
in front of the house. The officer ask
ed for General ; Barlow and.-- upot
meeting him, said that he was com
man ded by his royal highness the
Duke of Cambridge to invite General
Barlow to accept a review of her
majesty's command (of some 10,000
men) at Aldershot at 2 o'clock that
General Barlow gracefully accepted
the invitation and. donning his f'war

the Duke of Cambridge had thought thoughtfully

for Aldershot with his escort.---
