CHILDREN AND OLDER FOLKS
TURNED OUT BY HUNDREDS

Ocala scored another public suc success

Christmas tree celebration.
By 7:30 p. m., the northeast quar quarter

and older folks to enjoy themselves
in seeing the children happy.
The Christmas tree, a husky young
pine, stood right at the southeast
corner of the courthouse square. It
was firmly moored in place by strong
guys, that gave it balancing pulls
from several directions. It was strung
with electric wires, and at the proper
moment the current was turned on,
causing scores of tiny red and blue
bulbs to gleam in the foliage, while
above all flashed out a big, bright
Star of Bethlehem, below which shone
the word "Love," in radiant letters.
- Fixing the tree in place and ar arranging

work of Mr. Caldwell, superintendent
of the city plant, an adept in elec electricity

Mrs. Charles Wesley Hunter, the chil children

while a choir of many young voices,
accompanied by Miss Mary Gates
with a piano set at the Ocala House
corner, rendered several appropriate
pieces of music. Suddenly, coming
from the north, in a gleaming auto,
Santa Claus appeared among his vo-

it will be necessary for them to

making a splendid record this season

SCIATICA'S PIERCING PAIN
To kill the nerve pains of sciatica
you can always depend on Sloan's
Liniment. It penetrates to the seat of
pain and brings ease as soon as it is
applied. : A great comfort too 'with
Sloan's is that no rubbing is required.
Sloan's Liniment ,is invaluable for
stopping muscular or nrve pain of
any kind. Try it at once if you suffer
with rheumatism, lumbago, sore
throat, pain in chest, sprains, bruises,
etc. It is excellent for neuralgia and
headache. 25c at all druggists. 3
