of which is invulnerable.
As for the use of the water trans

that a co-operative freight line, op

cut rates considerably, and in so doing

cut in rates must have effect on rail

A freight line on the rivers, between
Ocala and Jacksonville, would reduce
rates, not only, but would give the
merchants an opportunity to cover a
greater field, reduce prices, and in
crease their profits.
There has been much said of late
about Gainesville taking trade from
Ocala. There is no reason why Ocala
should have better rates than, nor
even as good as Gainesvile, if the river

would obtain lower rates than Gaines Gainesville,

The straightening and deepening of
the Silver and Oklawaha rivers will
not benefit this city greatly if there is
no freight line. A boat line from
Leesburg to Jacksonville would not
help Ocala very much, unless the boat
be a common carrier. Leesburg,
doubtless, will establish a co-operative
line similar to the one attempted here.
Ocala therefore, must have a co cooperative

Consider some of Ocala's rates as
compared with those of other places
in the state. It is not necessary to
consider all. The general proposition
of one rate to Jacksonville and Tam Tampa,
pa, Tampa, plus another into Ocala, stands,
whether commodities are shipped from
the Ohio river crossings, or from the
east, by rail or by water.
From Cincinnati, for example, the
rate on commodities known as class 1,
covering dry goods, is 95 cents. The
rate for this class from Jacksonville
to Ocala is 62 cents, making the rate
from Cincinnati to Ocala $1.57. The
rate from Jacksonville to Anthony on
this class of goods is 56 cents. t It is
easy to see what position the Ocala
merchant is placed in with regard to
doing business in' Anthony.
Dry goods shipped into Anthony by
way of Ocala would take a rate of
$1.81. And what is true of dry goods
is true of hardware, crockery, sugar,
rice and other commodities.
The commodities just mentioned can
be shipped from the Ohio river cross crossings,

rates lower than the rates to Ocala.
The rate on class 2 stuff, covering

is $1.23. From Cincinnati to Ocala
the rate is $1.38. the rate on class 2
stuff from Jacksonville to Tampa is 43
cents, and from Jacksonville to Ocala

ROOKIES AND REGULARS
The Times-Union has been busy of
late trying to convince its readers
that our regular army was not much
good, and was officered by a set of
cads; and that on the other hand the
national guard was all it should be,

the army, what there is of it, is as
good as there is, and the national
guard is doing nobly. They are all de defenders

or any newspaper that tries to foster
ill-feeling between them, is in poor
In efficiency, however, it is useless
to dispute that it will take a long time
for men who have stepped out of the
walks of civil life to compete with
trained soldiers. The following prayer,
which has become very popular
among theguardsmen on the border,
shows how the men themselves look
at it, and there is no better basis of

with pleasure and will be nice to it if
it is nice to us. It has a perfect right
tocriticise us if it wants to, but if It
does it must expect us to hit back. A
paragraph in the same issue, in which
it said that we had proven Mr. Catts
a thief, shows that its editor was not
only too fresh but entirely too care careless,
less, careless, let him straighten out his mis-
take, accept the little chunk of salt
we have wafted at him, and every everything

POWELLS RETURN HOME

far north as Port Huron, Mich., and
as far west as St. Louis. They were
all through the flooded section ol
North Carolina and say the conditions
there are pitiful and the distress ol
the people is acute. They saw great
factories with their.heavy machinery
washed away like straws. Particular Particularly
ly Particularly about Charlotte and the CatawTTa
river the conditions were terrible, the
rain fall being almost a continuous
downpour for days.
The Powells said they had very few
clear days and traveled and camped
in the rain most of the three months

account of the rains, have been in bad

ingly. inquiringly. Then she arose and smiled
pleasantly as the tall young man hand
ed her his requisition slip.
Most people smiled at Homer Bra-
den. His frank, courageous face and
brown eyes, which looked so fearlessly
at the world were always paid back
in the coin they gave a smile for a
smile. Just now they looked with open
admiration at the pretty little girl with
the golden hair and blue eyes.
"I am 6orry, Mr. Braden," glancing
at the name ou the slip, "but you are
a minute too late. The last Scientific
American has just been given out. Will
anything else do?"
"No, thank you. I will look over
the want ads in the papers. Where
shall I find them, please?"
."They are all on file at the longtable
to the right I hope you will find what
you are looking for," she added hesitatingly.
The next day he came again. This
time the desired periodical was In, and
he seated himself at a table beside the
desk of the pretty librarian. At the
end of half an hour, however, he could
have told more about a pair of wonder
ful blue eyes and the wave of a cer
tain girl's bright hair than about the
newest process of producing tantalum.
He returned the paper, but she no
ticed that he again scanned the "want
ads" anxiously before he left. After
that he came every day, always ask asking
ing asking for some magazine of science, and
then anxiously scanning the, adver
tisement pages of the daily papers.
Her interest in the man deepened
when the anxious look grew more in intense.
tense. intense. His face had grown thinner,
and his linen frayed, although always
immaculate. Katharine found herself
worrying for him, watching his face
anxiously as he perused the columns,
evidently in vain.
One day he did not appear at the
usual hour, and although Katharine
watched the green baize doors expect
antly all afternoon, he did not come.
When she went home she felt that the
day had been Incomplete and insuf insufferably
ferably insufferably dull.
The next day the same and the
next. A week went by and still the
stranger did not come.
One Saturday she left the library
at noon. It was her time for shopping.
As she made her way through the
throngs on the busy streets she
watched every face eagerly as she
The day was warm and bright, the
sky blue, and In the atmosphere was a
soft, mysterious something which tells
of coming summer. Katharine decid decided

and most of the way was through the
As she came to the lake, a fussing
and chattering among the birds
brought her to a standstill beside a
bed of opening tulips. She watched an

and two huge redbreasts with blazing

nantly. Indignantly. "Isn't there any place for
decent birds or decent people In this
cruel world?" She stamped her foof
furiously. The action loosened a
bundle from its nest In her arms, and
it rattled to her feet. A figure on
the path behind her stepped forward
quickly to restore it, and Katharine
looked into the pleased face of Homer
"This seems to be my lucky day.
Miss Lang," he said, with a smile in
which the joy was unmistakable. She
wondered how he knew her name.
Katharine noticed the change in his
appearance. His old clothes had been
replaced by new, and the transforma
tion was miraculous. A certain confi
dence, too, had returned in his man
ner. His next words explained the
reason for both:
"I did not tell you about my inven invention
tion invention before. I will tell you just a
little now and save the particulars for
later on, if you don't mind. I have
something more interesting to tell you
first I had given up all hope of suc
cess till today, when I received a
check from the manufacturing concern
which is to use my patent. It will pay
me a small fortune, and I shall have
no need for your advertisement col
umns now. You have been my mas
cot in a great many ways since I have
known you. And now for the other
thing Katharine, I love you. I have
loved you dearly from the first mo
ment I saw you. I may seem precipi
tate to you, but I want this to be my
red-letter day, and my happiness will
not be complete until you have given
me some hope for the future."
A clump of japonica bushes held
Katharine's attention for a moment;
then, "I think you are a very auda
cious, presumptuous, overconfident
young man," she said severely, but
the expression in her eyes belied her
words. "Are you quite sure that your
splendid good fortune hasn't turned
your head completely, Mr. Braden? It
seems to me that it is rather unusual
upon such "short notice to tell chance
acquaintances that you love them."
"But don't you think yourself it's
a little sudden? You and I hardlj
"You do know you must know!
Look at me, Katharine, dear. Tell me
you love me."
She hesitated an instant, then whis
pered softly, "Ye3, I do love you."
And her cheeks were almost as rosy
as the japoniqa blossoms.
