REDUCED RATES
On Freight Secured by the Ocala
Knitting Mills
To show how a systematic and per persistent
sistent persistent effort along the right line can
accomplish results, we would like to
recite what Manager Harry Booth of
the Ocala Knitting Mills has done in
the way of securing lower freight
rates for his products.
When he began shipping a few
months ago, Mr. Booth, for instance,
paid (or his selling agents did, when
a delivered price was quoted) $1.20
per hundred pounds on knitted goods
from Ocala to Baltimore. The rate
was one cent more per hundred to
New York and Philadelphia, and at
the same time the local rate to Jack Jacksonville
sonville Jacksonville was 61 cents, which local
rate had to be added to the rate be
yond of 59 cents. Mr, Booth now has
a rate of y cents per hundred
pounds on his knitted goods to Bal Baltimore
timore Baltimore and 80 cents to New York and
Philadelphia, with a corresponding
reduction to all points on the eastern
seaboard as well as west as far as
St. Louis and even beyond. The local
rate now to Jacksonville is 20 cents
against 61 cents before.
Mr. Booth went right square after
the Interstate Commerce Cammis Cammis-sion,
sion, Cammis-sion, having been well posted on rates
himself, and then later on Mr. Capps,
vice president of the Seaboard, paid
a visit to the mills and was told
what was wanted and what he was
going to have before he quit he got
it and has made a net saving of 40
cents per hundred pounds on his out
going goods.
Mr. Booth was formerly with some
of the Georgia knitting mills arid
knew as well what the rates should
be as the rate men themselves. Be Before
fore Before he is through with it, he is 'go 'going
ing 'going to obtain some reductions on his
incoming freight as well.

The Star regrets to see the Miami

throw cold-water on Governor Tram

stand for national prohibition.

Dr. J. Walter Hood of this city, in
returning from Fort Pierce, the other
day, made a record run for Florida
roads. In his Studebaker roadster
with two passengers beside himself
and a trunk, he made the 241-mile
trip, in fourteen hours, twelve of
which was actual running time
Twenty miles an hour for twelve con consecutive
secutive consecutive Tiours is a mighty good re
cord for Florida roads. It may be
noted that the doctor and his party
came thru from Fort Pierce by auto
in much less time and at less cos
than they could have made the trip
by rai owing to the chamelion-like
system of transportation lines in this
state, which compel a traveler to go
around one end or the other in order
to reach the middle. Dr. Hood says
lots of money is being spent improv
ing the East Coast, some of the Yan
kee millionaires seeming to have re
solved to make a terrestial paradise
of it. He saw at Fulford, Mr. and
Mrs. Harry Lapham, ex-Ocalans, wel

at Fort Lauderdale he and Mrs. Hood

into a joyful day by the announce

days previous to the great holiday.
The act was one that reflects credit
on the charitable feelings of the
great American millionaire. We may
very well put aside any discussion of
the subject whether lessons in thrift
are thereby? inculcated, the rea

WE'RE ALL "JUST FOLKS"

Through the efforts of Editor Ben
jamin of the Ocala Star, Editor Har Harris
ris Harris of the Ocala Banner, and others,
Marion county recently swung into
the prohibition column for the first
time in thirty years, and the prohibi prohibitionists
tionists prohibitionists are naturally joyful at the re
sult of the election. Evidences of the
bitterness of the campaign have pass passed,
ed, passed, and everybody was harmonious
and loving in the Brick City on
Christmas day.
The spirit that should prevail in
struggles of all kinds is shown in
the following paragraph .from the
Ocala Star:
"Ed Carmichael felt so sorry for
the Star, when he read about its los losing
ing losing $93.60 by turning down two whis
ky ads. Tuesday, that he came over
to sympathize with it. Ed. said pro
hibition had cost him $800 this month,
and he wanted to mingle his tears
with some other suffering soul. We
all wept together. However, if we
don't starve to death this winter, us
and Ed will give a green corn dance
over the success of prohibition early
next summer."
That's the way to play the game of
life! That's the way to accomplish
good results in all causes! Bitterness
produces nothing but bitterness; the
spirit of kindliness and brotherly love
produces tenderness, and tenderness
produces lasting good.
Most of us have never been in the
saloon business, but we've all done
things that were as bad or worse. If
we've been strictly moral, it is more
than likely that we've been hopeless hopelessly
ly hopelessly hypocritical; if we've gambled and
drunk whisky," we've doubtless tried
to counter-balance these faults by
showing mercy to other unfortunates.

The years bring, or should bring,

realization of the fact that we're all

DIAMOND FROM
THE SKY

(Continued from Last Week)
CHAPTER XLiX.
Plot and Counterplot.
HE miracle of dawn crimsoned
all the east. The last boister boisterous
ous boisterous revelers were departing
from the fete of the mad mil
lionaire.
Only the butler, as major domo, had
speeded the parting guests, but the
guests had reveled and gorged and
swilled and cared nothing at heart for
host or mansion that had entertained
them with a Belshazzarlan feast.
And it was a Belshazzarlan feast,
and the handwriting of destruction
was on the wall.
In the small reception room upstairs
the unhappy wretch once called the
golden man sobbed on his arms like
the drug weakling he was. Vivian,
her hair in disorder and vixen-like in
her anger and grief, shook Arthur by
the shoulder and cried, "Where Is the
diamond?"
Blair, noting the open window, left
Durand and Vivian by Arthur and
crossed over to it-
There, down below, was Angelo, the
Italian gardener, up at dawn to his
work, plucking the diamond from the
sky from the rosebush. Just where it
had been cast through the wirlow by
the indignant Esther when Arthur had
proffered it to her.
"HI. there, you!" called Blair. Don't
take that! I am coming down for it."
The gardener,, who, like the rest of
the servants, bore a sullen dislike to
the whilom friends who surrounded
their master, growled an unintelligible
reply.
Durand, who sensed that the dia diamond
mond diamond had been found, sprang from
the room and made for the stairway,
with Blair beside him. They ran from
the front of the house and to the back.
But the gardener picked up a heavy
stake lying by the rosebush and stood
them off.
"I take to the boss!" he said. Nor
would he be shaken from his resolve.

Vivian Shook Arthur by the Shoulder.
And Durand and Blair, cursing his
stubbornness, escorted him backJnto
the house and to Arthur.
Vivian, realizing the diamond was
recovered, had ceased her vixenish de
mands and was again resorting to
wiles and cajolement.
But Arthur, shaken with shame and
wholly unnerved that they had de
ceived him as regards Esther's pres presence
ence presence in the city, his shame augmented
by the realization that Esther knew
now how he had fallen in his drug
addiction, took the diamond and staff-,

Reaching his suit, he locked, the
diamond in an ornate cabinet by the
great rear window of his bedroom and
then, pacing up and down, fought the
devil of drug desire for Esther's sake
and lost again.
The English lawyer Smythe, a knight
In armor in all sooth, escorted the
shaken Esther to her hotel, having
picked up the watching and waiting
Quabba In front of the Powell man mansion
sion mansion and taken him with them in the
taxicab. The next 'day she consulted
him about her affairs.
"I will see you safely back to Rich
mond," said Smythe gently. "Your
mother, you say, has recovered and
you wish to return to her. I am going
back to England resolved to let the
American heir or heirs to the Stanley
earldom claim the title when he or
they may choose."
"But what shall I do about Luke
Lovell?" asked Esther. "All his life.
except for tne brier revolt ne now Degs
forgiveness for. he served my, mother
faithfully."
"I would suggest, said Smythe.
"that our friend Quabba here stay be behind
hind behind us and see what he can do. He
may secure Lovell's release by, ap
pealing to Arthur Stanley, or, as he
calls himself now, John PowelL"
"I have no faith In Arthur now,
said Esther wearily. "He has fallen
Into evil ways through evil associa
tions.'
But In her steadfast heart Esther
Jesolved to say nothing to Smythe now
jor Hagar later regarding Arthur's
irug addiction.
"Welt" suggested the English law
yer, "our friend Quabba here can keep
us posted, and we may be able to take
up the matter of endeavoring to secure
Lovell's release from this unjust in
carceration after we return to Rich
mond. No doubt he chafes fearfully
in his prison cell.'
The next day Esther, accompanied
by Smythe, left Los Angeles for Rich
mond. Quabba. placed in funds by
Smythe, stayed behind.
Quabba was an Italian gypsy, and
his new friend and compatriot, the
gardener at the Powell mansion, was
at the train with him when he bade
bis respectful sidieus to his young mis mistress

On the way back from the depot the
gardener, deeming Quabba needed

Signora Soiari made them welcome.
"She has no good looks," whispered
Quabba's friend, "but you should see,
her daughter Rosa:-' Ah, Rosa is a
charmer, and how she will smile at
you if you pay for the better wine!
You should see her !"
It was fated that Quabba was to
see the ravishing Rosa. De Vaux; a
lady killer, to his way of thinking, had
also seen the ravishing Roea-
She had smiled at De Vaux in pass
ing, and be had followed her to the
garden La Bella Napbti. A-citizen of

Italian charmingly, knew welrhow to

profit
From their distant table in the gar
den Quabba and tbe Powell gardener
noted all this, but kept their distance
unseen and unnoticed by the languish
ing De Vaux. Fate was playing into
the hands of Quabba and his friend at
their table in the corner. He had a
grievance, had Cesare. the contractor.
He proclaimed it.
"Look you," he said, "I get a con contract
tract contract a good contract-to fix a roof,
and 1 can't get any of these lazzarohl
to go on the work!"
Questioned why by Quabba, Cesare
shrugged his shoulders and said:
"There are two reasons the loafers give
me. One Is that It is a nonunion job.
and the other is it is work at the pris prisonand
onand prisonand that they do not like. They
fear the prison, maybe for good rea

Quabba sat erect The prison? Luke
Lovell was in the prison! :
"Me, observe me! Roofing that was
my trade!" cried Quabba. "Angelo
here will tell you!"
Angelo. who knew nothing at all of
the matter, roundly swore that Quabba
was the best roofer that had ever left
Italy.

At the Powell mansion suspicion, plot
and counterplot were the aftermath of
the grand fete. Arthur announced that
he would return to his business affairs
and had hinted that he was prepared
to pay Durand handsomely for his
services as a physician and would be re relieved

would go about their affairs.
He drew a check for a large sum and

Durand had held threats over Vivian
of disclosing their former swindling
association to both Blair and Arthur

On her part Vivian promised, but In
her heart she was resolved that she
alone would have the diamond.'
Arthur's return to his office was
made a happy affair by his employees.
His desk bore a large horseshoe of
flowers, and his secretary welcomed
him back to health and his business in
an earnest little speech.

with every attention that they would have in their own homes, and most of them have been placed in
permanent homes of their own with their foster parents.
To carry on this great work, which the Star considers one of the most noble works of the state, has
cost a great deal of money and the society is short several thousand dollars. The society is very anx anxious
ious anxious to close the year out of debt.
Won't you send some money to the treasurer whatever you can spare, from 25 cents up" Won't
you do it now? Beter still, won't you write the society and tell it that you wil pay so much a year,
payable quarterly, and send the first quarterly payment with your letter?
One of the handsome little books, issued each year, containing a full report of the society's accom accomplishments
