gestion suggestion for next Hallowe'en. It should
attract their attention, for it is orig
inal at least, we have never seen
nor heard of it before.
It is this: That next Hallowe'en,
they all get together and put in the
same amount of energy that they
displayed last Saturday night in im
proving the town instead of adding
to its disorder.
We have noticed, and they have
noticed more than we for what a boy
doesn't see isn't worth seeing many
premises in Ocala that by lack of
civic pride on the part of the owners
have come to look like the last rose
of summer with its head mashed in.
If a couple of hundred boys "would
concentrate on one such a place with
the vim that they displayed in rush
ing wagons around town Saturday
night, they could soon have it looking
as slick as a peeled onion.
Take for instance the melancholy
stretch of territory from the back
doors of the Merchants' block to Fort
King avenue. Had the Saturday
night crowd turned its attention to
that Saraha in an oasis, they would
have had it empty and swept, if not
garnished, in thirty minutes, and
would have had all the balance of
their time to make the area from
North Main street west to the Florida
Abstract building, just in front of the
postoffice, look like a public park
ought to look.
And still we think they would have
had time and energy to move on to
another place or two. It is true, en entirely
tirely entirely too true, that it is easier to
tear down than build up. But than
Young America nothing can accom
plish more when it tries.
We would not advise the boys of
Ocaal to pull off this Hallowe'en
stunt more than once. If they made
a practice of it, the people of the
town, with the usual consistent incon inconsistency
sistency inconsistency of human nature, would soon
leave all the cleaning up for them to
do. But if they would do it just
once, they might shame some of the
older people into not leaving so much
of it to be done by Hallowe'en of
No doubt our critics will say we
are foolish to suggest such an enter enterprise
prise enterprise almost twelve months ahead of
time. We have, however, two good
and sufficient reasons for making the
suggestion 363 days before it can be
One is that if it is taken seriously

DEALING TO VILLA FROM
BOTTOM OF THE DECK
Villa is reported to have said that
he" and his partisans would fight and
could whip the United States. It is
not to be wondered that any unedu-
cated Mexican believes that even a
section of his country can whip all of
this one, and it is hard to see why
America supports Carranza against
Villa. The situation at Agua Prieta
is fraught with potential trouble.
Carranza's army is standing with its
back to the American town of Doug Douglas,
las, Douglas, Arizona, and Villa's troops can
not attack Carranza's men without
many bullets going into American
territory. There are at least 3000
American troops in Douglas, osten ostensibly
sibly ostensibly to protect the town, but unless
the Mexicans cross the border it is
not likely that the government will
allow them to do anything. They and
the civilian population will probably
cower behind barricades until the
fighting is over. If they do return
the fire, the effect must of necessity
fall on Villa's men and aid their en-
emies. uarranza 13 a suck oia scoun
drel, has first defied the United States
and is now using it as a catspaw.

MORE CLIMBING LESS CLIME
Florida needs more climbing and
less talk of climate. Climate doesn't
raise forage crops and run it through
a razorrback and product a $30 hog.
It doesn't make a hen pay $1 a year.
Climate is a good talking point when
the pump is frozen stiff and the stove
is lapping up coal like a cat does milk.
We have talked climate in Florida

will give him credit at the bank and

The Florida boom of two years ago is
a thing of the past. It brought us a
few stickers a few who had sense
and backbone who were not chasing
will-o'-the-wisps, but in a great ma
jority the others came here inspired
with the pictures drawn of a happy
family browsing under flowering
vines of the front door, with a wide
vista of orange groves aft and a
shimmering lake fore, with an auto
mobile set to one side, and a rural
mail carrier coming up with a wad of
gold certificates to tide them over for
the day. And when they came and
saw that it took money and brains
and work and energy to build that
happy home here the same as it would
do elsewhere, they straightway went
back to "wife's folks" and began villi-
fying the state.
Those who stayed and made a suc
cess were climbers.
The others were clime-ers.
The climbers always make good in

do better here in a shorter space of

She and Herrara met at a ball given
by a wealthy planter, and the meeting
resulted in a love affair. At the time
Senor Madera, who had sunk a fortune
in Spain before coming to Cuba and
had always since been impecunious,
had been approached by Manuel Fur Furtado

The grandee was at first disposed to
regard the application as an insult, but
when Furtado announced that he had
accumulated a considerable fortune
and would supply the old man's want.-
the latter turned a listening ear.
The entrance of Herrara into the
play made a great difference to Fur
tado. What might probably have resulted-
without his interference was
now impossible. But he, did not real realize
ize realize this. He had been introduced to
Senorita Inez by her father, and she
had, received him graciously. Then
came to the lawyer a temptation to put
his rival out of the way. Those were
times whn persons in Cuba were very
easily put out of the way. The captain
general was an autocrat whose order
would send any man to prison or be
fore a firing squad. ; ; v
Furtado lodged information at the
palace that Jose Herrara was not only
a revolutionist, but that he was plot plotting

waylaid by order of the governor and
carried to prisoii. Ko one knew of his
arrest. Furtado had reported that if it
were known that he were a captive it
would exasperate his friends, and they
were sufficiently numerous to make
trouble. So his arrest was kept secret.
Soon after this came the Spanish Spanish-American
American Spanish-American war and the landing of Unit United
ed United States troops in Cuba. Herrara lay
in prison till the war ended, then came

but did not know who that person was.
Before making himself known to any

THE GREATEST HOT WEATHER COMFORT IS THE CHEAPEST
A block of our ice will do more to keep you cool and healthy during-
this hot weather than anything else and the cost is the merest trifle.
Keep your refrigerator well chaiged with our ice and you can charge
off drug bills, bad terapc-r and most other torrid time ills.
