OCALA - FLORIDA
SOME NATURAL HISTORY
GROWING IN GRACE
Mr. H. L. Anderson, formerly of
Ocala, now of Jacksonville, has been
growing in grace ever since he quit
the republican party, and is now al
most a democrat. We subtract the
following concerning his views from
the Lakeland Telegram:
"Colonel H. L. Anderson of Jack
sonville, not only chief spokesman for
the Bull Moose party in Florida, but
believed to be the sum total of the
party itself, rank and file, field and
staff, has an interview in the Times-
Union of yesterday which is interest
ing as indicating the present political
attitude of his party. He says the
Bull Moosers are alive and doing and
will give a good account of themselves
next year. They will hold their na
tional convention and nominate a
straight progressive ticket and will
make a vigorous campaign in every
state in the Union. But the signifi
cant part of the interview is that Col
onel Anderson, while not. expecting
his party to elect its ticket, does ex ex-nect
nect ex-nect that it will contribute materially
to the re-election of Woodrow Wilson,
whom the colonel intimates will be
altogether preferable to any man the
republicans may nominate. Bully for
you colonel, and if you voice the sen sentiments
timents sentiments of your leader, Theodore
Roosevelt, bully for him also."
HERBERT R. SHAW
Mr. Herbert R. Shaw, brother of
Mr. Charles H. Shaw at Zuber, died in
Dade City Saturday afternoon, after
a short illness of pneumonia, and was
buried in that city Sunday.
Mr. Shaw has been teaching" school
for several years, but at the time of
hi 3 death was running a mail route
out of Dade City. He attended school
in Ocala some twelve years ago, hav having
ing having come here from Island Grove,
where his father, Mr. J. R. Shaw, stil
Mr. Shaw was born at Island Grove
was twenty-five years old and had
been married about two years.

the bereaved ones.
MRS. A. K. SAVAGE
Many Ocalans of the earlier days
will be grieved to learn of the death
of Mrs. A. K. Savage, at the home of
her son, Mr. S. S. Savage, Sr. at Ya
laha, last Saturday, and was buried
Sunday. Some twenty years ago Mrs
Savage lived in Ocala and had many
friends here. She is the grandmother
of Mr. S. S. Savage Jr. of this city,
and was 88 years okTat the time of
Eureka, Dec. 14. Cane grinding
has come to a close and hog killing is
the order of the day with plenty of
pork sausage, head cheese, potatoes
etc., and it seems as though hard
times is a thing of the past. There is
nothing to compare with the dear old
farm, tho .simple it may seem.
The infant son of Mr. and Mr.
"Doc" Brinson died at the home of its
grandparents Monday morning last.
The remains of the little one were in
terred in the Orange Springs ceme
tery by the side of its mother, who
preceded it to the better home some
five months ago. The baby had been
an invalid all of its life and although
it is hard to give such treasures up
we must realize that it is better off
for where it is now there 13 no sor sorrow,
row, sorrow, neither pain to endure for the
pure little soul hath returned to the
God who gave it.
