night with an operetta by the fifth
and sixth grades. This was followed
on Friday night by a concert of the
primary grades. Saturday was Farm

the school plant. rPof. A. P. Spencer,
of the University of Florida, was the
chief speaker and the farmers heard
him gladly. His address on "Scien

On Sunday morning the last com

The same was short,' solemn and ef

the processional, led by the principal
and speaker of the day, started from
Carnegie Hall to the chapel. Despite
threatening clouds the auditorium
was quite full with visitors from the
community, Ocala and surrounding
towns. The baccalaureate sermon was
preached by Rev. J. W. Holloway of
Dorchester Academy, Thebes, Ga., and
a masterly sermon it was.
The public examinations Monday
morning were followed in the after
noon by an enthusiastic prize speak
ing contest in which the young people
showed careful training. The first
prize was won by Joseph Pratt, of
the junior class and the second by
Louverna Akery, of the ninth grade.
Mr, and Mrs. C. H. Kittredge were
among the judges and spoke highly of
the contestants. Mr. F. J. Gadson of
the Ocala Bazaar, donated the prize
The baccalaureate address and the
annual concert Monday were espe

the third and fourth grades. The
exercises closed Wednesday night
with a play by the high school, en
titled "Savageland." Every student
was at his best and the audience, in
cluding many white friends, went
away giving many compliments to
both student sand teachers.
Prof. Barnwell feels very grateful
to the public for the cordial support
given him and his workers this year.
He believes with his predecessor, Prof.
Wiley, in the culture of the head, the
heart, the hand and is working along
this line. The exceptional display of
work in the cooking, domestic art and
manual training departments proved
in no uncertain way the kind of work
he is doing for the people of this sec
tion. He deserves and will get, we be

CAUSE OF SHADOWS.
And Why They Are Darker In the
Night Than In the Daytime.
Where anything through which rays
of light cannot pass Intercepts the light
rays coming from a luminous body the
light rays are turned back in the direc direction
tion direction from which they come and the
part on the other side of the object
which intercepted the light goes into
shade, and a shadow results. ;
A shadow then Is produced by cut cutting
ting cutting off one or more light rays. We
notice shadows when the sun is bright
in the daytime and at night when we
walk along the streets lighted partly
by street lamps. v r.
The shadows we see in the daytime
are caused by our cutting off and
throwing back some' of the light rays
which come from the sun. These are
not so dark as the shadows we see at
night because the rays of light from
the sun are so bright and are reflected
from so many other objects to the side
and In back of us.
'. When, however, we are walking along
a dimly lighted street and come to a
street lamp the shadows our bodies
cause are quite black. The night shad shadows
ows shadows are darker because the source of
light Is less Intense and the objects, to
the side of and in back of us (if we are
walking toward the light) do not reflect
so much of the light rays as they do of
the sun's rays In the daytime. Fhila.

reward for every little service. At the
end of the week he made out a "biir to

her eyes would fall upon it. The items
were as follows:
"Mother Owes to Robert.
"Five cents for running errands.
"Five'cents for being good."
That; evening there appeared beside
Robert's plate a paper upon which was
"Robert owes mother, for years of
happiness, nothing; for nursing him
through long Illnesses, nothing; for do doing

Thoroughly ashamed of himself,
Robert ran to mother, threw his arms
around her and sobbed:

Fifty 'weeks of saving for one or two

If ever you want a lesson In patient
waiting, turn to 1 the flower which Is
satisfied to remain obscure nearly all
its life for the privilege of blooming
for, a few days -the narcissus.
The bulb existence of the narcissus
is so much obscured that we forget all
about how the flower is using it as a
savings bank or a life insurance pol
icy. What we think. Is a worthless,
ugly clump In the earth Is : busy the
year round 'storing up 'nourishment
and strength to serve the flower dur
Ing its blooming period.
If the bulb were not of a saving dis disposition
position disposition there would be no blossoms.
The flower In irurn takes sunlight and
oxygen and sends it into the bulb to
store away for another period of
blooming. J v lt depends upon the bulb
to conserve this, strength, and the
bulb's thrift never falls. ;
; Don't make the mistake of calling
the bulb the root. In reality the bulb

a cluster of thick leaves. Planted In
the earth the bulb sends down roots,
which seize fast to the noil and drag

HARDER THAU THE BOYS
Teachers Declare Girls Are Inter

Give Attention to Essentials.
Minneapolis, Minn.- A characteristic
difference between girls and boys was
revealed in Miss Jessie Taylor's class
at Whittier school when the pupils
took down the following problem re recently
cently recently read to them by the teacher:
"What are the proceeds of a ninety
days' note for $789.00 discounted at C
per cent?" ;
Seven girls and two boys wrote out
the problem exactly as given. Three
boys Jotted down the three essential
conditions of the problem and nothing
else. The remainder of the class ab
breviated the conditions more or less,
with the majority of the girls writing
t out more completely than the boys.
- The following interpretations were
offered by various school authorities:
"Girls are Interested in details, while
boys are interested in essentials this
is a characteristic sex difference.'

PORK AND PORCELAIN.
And the Venu Shell of the Shores ef
You remember the comment ofethe
wag wlio declared that if fish should
be served only on plates adorned witb
fishes and seaweed pork should be
served only On porcelain- And you
probably saw no connection whatever.
It is remotely possible that the wag
saw no connection, either beyond the
sound of the words.
Curiously enough, there Is a deep
inner connection between pork and
porcelain, a connection that happens
to drag in a certain kind of fish that
was found on the shores of the Medi
terranean. That fish was the Venus
shell, and it inhabited a house more
beautiful than any Italian palace. The
top of the shell was oval and arched,
and when it was covered with a fine
gray seaweed the children who played
along the shore called It "porcella,"
the little pig.
In time the Venus shell came to be
known as the porcella, perhaps be because
cause because the people who gathered the
shells for their commercial value were
more familiar with the pig than with
the luminous goddess of love, whose
radiance was supposed to be reflected
In the iridescent house of the creature

nus is said to have arisen. ;
The luster of that shell was well
known all over Europe, and when a

very hard and luminous he called it
"porcelain," because It resembled the
shell of the "porcella." lie was not

' Although most farmers believe that
the. common "chicken" snake haunts
their outbuilding in order to feed on
their young ducks and chickens, the
snake does nothing of the kind, but it
does destroy great numbers of young
mice and other pests. Man's dread and
hatred of snakes, says Dr. Shufeldt,
have been from the earliest time a mat

snakes are the easiest animals in, the

Council is still determined to bring
pressure to bear upon the railroads in
an effort to have action in the matter
of moving the union station, in spite
of the" fact that work on the station
has progressed as far as the roof.
Orders have been given for the rigid
enforcement of existing ordinances
and new ordinances have been intro
It was announced in council last
night that the ordinance affecting
the Seaboard Air Line on Exposition
street would be enforced, and trains
reuqired to limit their speed to four
miles an hour. This ; is the speed
minimum fixed by state law, ;
President Nash introduced the ord
inances to require the Seaboard and
Coast Line to place gates at every
street crossing in the city, and the
ordinances were referred to the judi
ciary committee. The ordinances
provide also for watchmen at the Ex
position street, North Magnolia, Fort
King and Oklawaha crossings.
The "ordinance recently introduced
to require the Seaboard to run its
trains at a speed of one mile an hour
over the North Magnolia street cross
ing, and fixing a fine of not less than
$100 nor more than $500, was, killed
by council after several test votes.
The judiciary committee had approv
ed this measure thinking that the
city attorney had drafted it. It was
brought out that the measure had
come from Mr. C W. Hunter.

council ought to put the railroads on

MAXWELL HAS A BIG
Low Fuel Consumption Big Factor in
Order for Twenty-Seven
The Maxwell Motor company closed
a contract last week with the muni
cipal government of Kansas City for
twenty-seven new motor cars. The
order was placed by William C.
Weaver, purchasing agent for Kansas
City, after he had made an investiga
tion extending over a field of cars of
various makes. He found the Max
well best adapted to the needs of the
exacting municipal service, because of
its durability, its dependability, and
its great economy in operation.
Another factor that entered into the
closing of the contract was the
prompt delivery ; guaranteed by the
Maxwell company. A promise was
made that the cars : would all be
turned over in three days and this
promise was fulfilled to the letter.
In the consignment are twenty-one
runabouts and a touring car, the re
mainder being chassis for special
The growing popularity of the Max
well chassis in the commercial field
was another element that entered into
the transaction; These chassis are de delivered

fitted on. There is no extra wiring
or adjusting to be done. The tops
may be made according to the speci specifications
fications specifications : and requirements of the
owner. Many merchants are finding
this a most convenient method "of
purchasing cars for delivery purposes
Last year, Kansas City used a num
ber of motor cars of a make other
than Maxwell in its municipal service.
For several months, Mr. Weaver, the
city's purchasing agent, has been
keeping a close tab on gasoline con
sumption and he knows a good deal
of what the Maxwell can accomplish
along this very important line. He
wisely concluded that the use of Max Maxwell
well Maxwell cars for the city service would
cut down the municipal gasoline bill
to an appreciable degree. '
