TO BE HELD
. 9, TO
At a meeting Monday night of good
roads enthusiasts, in the rooms of the
Commercial Club, further steps were
taken with a view, of calling "an elec election
tion election for an issue of bonds in the sum
of $900,000, for the purpose of giving
Marion county a system of permanent
roads, that will place her with the
rapidly increasing number; of counties
of the state now in the ront ranks.
It was proposed that the bonds be
serial bonds issued on a basis of 30
years, and figures were presented to
show that thus issued the bonds
would not raise the taxes of the coun county,
ty, county, but would permit a decrease of the
present millage. Or, if the county
wished to retain- the present millage,
an increasingly large sum would be
available for road work over and
above the building of the roads with
the money obtained from the sale, of
the bonds. f ?
Monday, August 7, was decided on
as the day for the convention in Ocala
for the purpose of ascertaining the
sentiment of the county with regard
to the bond issue. In the meantime a
committee, consisting of W. D. Cam,
David S. Welch and E. M. Osborne,
will whip into shape the figures show
ing just how the money is to be spent
This information will be got out as
soon as possible, in order that the
meetings might be held in the various
precincts to select delegates to the
convention here. '"
If the convention on August 7 goes
on record as favoring bonds, the coun
ty commissioners, meeting in regular
session the next day, will be asked to
call an election and to select a first
class engineer to prepare V specifica specifications
tions specifications for the roads. The intention) as
already announced, is to have specifi specifi-tions
tions specifi-tions prepared and contracts then let
for the building of the roads,he con contracts
tracts contracts to be subject to the vote of the
people. In this way every voter will
know whether he is to be benefited, or
not. He will know just how the bond
money is to be spent.
. It was agreed last night that the
important things to be considered
about ?the proposed issue are: the ef effect
fect effect on taxes, and the proper spend
ing of the money. The concensus of
opinion was that the bond issue would
carry without any doubt, if it is shown
that there will be ho increase in taxes,
no graft, and that every section of the
county will be benefited.

are scavengers, and before the war

It is a great pity that W. R. Hearst
owns a ranch in Mexico. .. There has
been probably an American killed for
every quarter section of the said
ranch, and there are many people who
seem willing for the United States to
bear with injury from the greasers
until there is a dead gringo for every
acre. Hearst's enemies in ; this
country seem to think they are get

WILL FLORIDA SPLIT ITS VOTE?
The Tampa Tribune propounds this
What are the democrats of Florida
going to do about casting the state's
vote for Wilson and Marshall ?
Six presidential electors have to be
chosen by the voters of this state. The
democrats have only 'three qualified
candidates. Six were nominated but
three of them fell victims to the pri primary
mary primary laws and failed to file their
campaign expense accounts. There
fore, they are disqualified and cannot
be considered as nominees.
Under the primary lawv the demo
cratic party having participated in the
general election of 1914, these nomi nominations
nations nominations must be made by primary.. It
would seem, therefore, that they can
not now be nominated.
With only three candidates for elec
tors on the ticket, the democratic
party of Florida can cast only three
electoral votes for Wilson and Mar
shall. This being truef can one of the
other parties which have full elec
toral tickets, elect the' other three
electors and thus divide the electoral
vote of Florida with the democrats?

FRIENDSHIP THAT IS REAL
istance Has but Small Part in Sever

We often hear of cases more often
between men, but sometimes between
women where school friends separate
and marry, living their lives apart for
ten or fifteen years, only to find the
old relation Just as firm as ever on
meeting again. Or In certain Instances
friends separate, never to meet asrain.
but keep up their correspondence for
years, and the one In a far city would
do Just as' much for the distant chum.
were the occasion to arise, as If their
friendship had recently been close and
intimate. .. ;
Friendship knows no space and no
bounds. It Is an Indissoluble link be between
tween between two human beings. And If you
expect to enjoy the affection of a real
pal you must be prepared to do your
share. Do not be forever demanding
and expecting from your friends. You
can only keep alive the pure' flame of
friendship by giving unselfish love and
disinterested affection. Do not look
for them, but give from your heart,
arid you will receive. That Is one of
the beauties of friendship. The more
love you give, the mbre you receive.
But the more you demand and expect.
the less you get.
Good pals are more precious than
diamonds' or gold, for they are the
rarest of all valuables. Friendship is
the salt of the earth and those who
know the Joy of real friendship should
do all In their power to guard arid
keep it, not to destroy it.
How often we risk losing the affec
tion of real friends for some worthless
acquaintance! So often we offer In
sults and .snubs (sometimes uncon
sciously) to those who weigh more' in
friendship's scales than a thousand of
the aimless flatterers who would bry
to make us believe they are friends.
Let us learn to know our real friends
and to. give a heartfelt appreciation
for the value of such friendship.

ALL AT "GENERAL MUSTER"
Everybody Was More or Less Inter-
ested In the Militia Some De
In considering the subject of pre-
naredness it miKht be wise to look
up the old militia system that pre
vailed sixty or seventy years ago,
when states were divided into dis
tricts, each one having a company to
which all men of soldier age were re
quired to belong, and give a few days
each year to military drill, the Colum Columbus
bus Columbus Journal observes.
Every year there would be a "gener
al muster," at which the various com
panies would gather, and under the
command of a plumed and bespangled
officer would perform the various evo evolutions
lutions evolutions and go through the manual of
arms that would strike with awe the
surrounding crowd of women and chil-
dren, gathered to witness the heroic
displays of fathers and brothers.
These general musters were great
events in the times of our grandfath
era. They were social as well as mill
tary, and often adorned with feasts of
warlike provender. In one of his
speeches Tom Corwin tells of a gen general
eral general muster in. which the brave mili militiamen,
tiamen, militiamen, with bayonet and sword,
charged on a pile of watermelons and
cut the red hearts out of the enemy.
McKean Buchanan, a California
tragedian in the olden days, was noted
for the roaring style in which lie
played Shakespearean characters, also
for Ills fondness for litigation, and
for, never paying his lawyers. J. Gor Gordon
don Gordon Eastman was posted as to this
last peculiarity of the "great Shake Shakespearean
spearean Shakespearean delineator," as he styled him
self, and when Buchanan, filled with
wrath, at an adverse criticism in a city
paper, determined to sue the editor,
burst into the lawyer's office and said:
'Sir, I- wish to retain you," the man
of the law replied: ''Awfully sorry,
Mr. Buchanan, but I am retained on
the jother side." Buchanan replied:
'The other side; what other side? Who
has retained you against me?'' The
attorney replied, "Shakespeare's
ghost," and the interview closed.

picturesque capital In Europe.
The castle keeps you from looking
at anything else for the first fifteen or
twenty minutes. It stands In the. mid middle

up almost straight from the level. You
cannot see where the hill leaves off
and the castle begins; it seems to have
grown from the living rock beneath it.
They tell you that the castle has never
been taken by assault, though it has
been perched there for a thousand
years or so. You are not surprised at
the statement, but you indulge in a
little mild speculation as to the par
ticular form of foolishness that led
anybody to assault it.
After a" while you look away from
the castle and size up the city at large.
Miles of gray mansions spiked with
towers and Bpires stretch before you,

of greatness. Here the national life
of Scotland has centered ever since

patriots, all her men of .sciences and

capital. As a result, Edinburgh has a
personality as clear cut and individual
as that of some great actress. She is
as Scotch as Robert Burns. If you
like the reticence, the mixture of sen sentiment

Scottish temperament, you will find
Edinburgh a never-ending delight.
TELL OF HUMAN SACRIFICE

Tha curator of anthropology at the

tion collection a pair of thongs which are, so
far as known, the only existing relics
of the Pawnees' tribal rite of mak
ing a human sacrifice to the Morning
Star, god of war. Curiously enough,
the Pawnee god of war star is believed
tp have been the planet Mars.
When life grew dull it devolved
upon the Pawnee priests to relieve the
tedium of the tepees by dreaming that
old Morning Star demanded a sacri
fice. Then the bloods went on the
warpath until they captured a maiden
of a hostile tribe. After, due ceremony
she was bound by thongs to a scaf scaffold,
fold, scaffold, her feet pointing right at old
Morning Star himself. When tfre
brave bucks, who rather prided them
selves on their sharpshooting, had
stuck her so full of arrows that she
looked like a hedgehog, and when her
heart had been cut out the party was
over. ' ; v
