The city council met last night in

an unanimous vote.

(Associated Iress)
Washington, Dec. 8. The Inter
state Commerce Commission in its
annual report yesterday to Congress
recommended a sweeping change in
methods of establishing freight and
passenger rates so that shippers
would not-longer be compelled to show
a proposed rate unreasonable or see it
become effective. Carriers seeking to
alter a rate would be compelled to
show the change was reasonable.
The recommendation is "that by
statute Congress fix the interstate
rates? fares, charges, classifications,
rules and regulations existing at a
specific date, prior to that of enact enactment,

VOLUNTEER SYSTEM
IS A FAILURE
The volunteer military system again
has proven itself a failure and should
bo relegated to the past, declares
Major General Hugh L. Scott, chief of
staff of the army, in his annual report
made, public last night. Basing his
conclusions On the showing of the fed federalized
eralized federalized National Guard when mobiliz mobiliz-ed
ed mobiliz-ed for border duty, and the fact that
strenuous recruiting campaigns for
both the regulars and guardsmen have
produced negligible results, General
Sr-ntt savsr
"In my judgment the country will

There is no reason why one woman's

her son who refuses to take training
or service. The only democratic method

render efficient service if called upon
in war."
Taking up the question of the Na National
tional National Guard in its federal status Gen General
eral General Scott declares the training period
,01 o days in tnree years provided by
the new national defense act is wholly
inadequate. v
"In my judgment," he says, "it pre precludes
cludes precludes this force from being made fit
for war service until it has received at
least six months additional training in
time of war.
The report reiterates the opinion
that it takes a year of intensive train
ing to make a soldier and adds that
the country and Congress appear to
have a vital misconception of the facts
in this regard. Unless the federalized
National Guard which Congress sub substituted
stituted substituted for the citizen volunteer army
advocated by the general staff can be
given greater training, General Scott
says the country faces a serious sit situation.

tion oi wnether we would be able to

In spite of the fact that the prepar prepar-edness

while the effort was being made to
bring the border forces to war

months of recruiting left many Na National

tions. sections. "The failure,", says the report,
should make the whole people realize
that the volunteer system does not
and probably will not give us either
the men we need for training in peace
or for, service in war."
General Scott gives at length sta statistics
tistics statistics on the National Guard mobili mobilization
zation mobilization available when his report was
written, Sept. 30. He shows that in
11 states with. 16,600 enrolled guards
men at the time of the call more than
10 per cent failed to respond and 29
pass required physical tests making
the force 45 per cent raw recruits
when it went to the border. Brought
up to War strength, he says, the force
would have been 75 per cent green
men and useless for war purposes for
many months.
"These figures probably hold good
for the entire body of the National
Guard," the report adds.
The aggregate force of 151,096 of
ficers and men of the guard were mus
tered into the federal service under
the call and about 110,957 were on the
border a month and a half after the
call was issued. The general com
mends highly the efficiency of the rail
roads in handling the mobilization.
Turning to recruiting in the regular
army the report says that the service
was 29,130 short of its authorized
strength on August 31 last. Between
March 15, and August 31 only 8,463
additional men were enrolled.
"It is cause for sober consideration
on the part of every citizen of the
country when the fact is fully under
stood," General Scott, says, "the units
of the National Guard and regular
army have not been recruited up to
war strength in the crisis we have
just passed through."
The report shows that the mobilized
National Guard- force not only was
more than 97,000 below war strength
but was more, than 4,000 below .au .authorized
thorized .authorized minimum peace strength.
General Scott urges drastic censor censorship

Take the rainbow tints of Silver

broadcast in a tropic land under a
southern sky and you have Miami, the
beautiful. Its color impresses you;
color run riot, brilliant, vivid. The
hedges flare out in flaming reds,
cnleus taller than your head; there
are plants like ribbons, and crotons
mottled in yellows. The blue of the
sky is the purest, sweetest blue, and
opalescent the cluods which fleck the
azure. There are purples and greens
in the waters of Biscayne Bay. Red Red-roofed

ing dazzling white in the sunshine. Over all
reigns the royal palm, royal because
it never bends its stately trunk, but
reaches straight and regal to the sun sun-Miami

words in a soft clime suited to poetry
and romance. I have wondered if the
Indian tongue, which framed the name
of the wonder city harked back by
unknown ways to the love verb of
the Latins, and called it Miami, for
we can but love it.'

oldest inhabitants, a ship laden with
cocoanuts bound north from the

Do It Yourself.
Remember if you have your midd

SHADY
Shady, Dec. 6. Messrs. Jarvis,
Perry and John' Lanier were visitors
in Shady Sunday afternoon, coming
over from Pedro.
Little Miss May Adams is spending
a few days in Pedro, the guest of the
little Stuart girls.
Mrs. Zeb. Freeman enjoyed a visit
from two of her cousins from Well Wellborn
born Wellborn last week.
Mr. Zeb. Freeman keeps the game
around here moving and we notice
quite a number of friends enjoy the
sport with him. At this writing he
has a fine fox which he caught alive,
said fox being about the steenth he
has captured right lately.

Dr. Purvis' friends regret to hear

that he is on the sick list this week.
Mr. Tom Jones of Ocala was in
Shady Sunday afternoon visiting rel

atives.

These good farmers out here are

busy gathering corn, etc. Messrs

Fred and George Buhl are having

velvet beans picked and seed pindars

picked off.
v m w "i i

j. i. j. uasKins and sons are
gathering corn now and last week

baled some pretty hay.

Mr. George Leak and son, Mr. Wil

Leak, have planted a field of Japanese

cane to feed cows on another year.

Mr. Will Little has gone to Marco

Island in South Florida. Mrs. Little

will remain with Mrs. Barnes for
while longer.

Why so much hue and cry about
the high cost of living? The fanners

hereabouts deny the charge so far as

they are concerned. For instance:
They have totake 75c. per bushel in

trade for sweet potatoes, 75c. per

bushel for corn, the home markets

give 8c. per pound for dressed pork,
$16 a ton for Florida hay, velvet

beans $1 per 100 pounds. High rents
and extra good service between the
farmer and your table is the cause of

the high cost of living.

May we speak out in meeting con

cerning the Ocala and Silver Springs

canal ? Has it ever occurred to the
promoters that it is possible that they

might empty the whole of the stream

into a subterranean cavity and how

the original stream would look with without
out without water? Or what a fix Ocala would
be in if the backwater should become
stagnant and endanger the health of
the town? These are suggestions, not
croakings. We would be glad to see
the projected scheme go through
without a hitch.
Miss Louise Albertson spent from
Wednesday, evening till Sunday aft afternoon
ernoon afternoon with relatives in Weirsdale,
going to Ocala Friday to attend the
fair, '
Shady was well represented at the
fair Thursday and Friday and a few
carried exhibits and were awarded
blue and red ribbons. We hope to do
better next year than ever..

The Newest Discovery in Qhctilistry.
Eminent Medical

authorities Endorse It.

A New Remedy for Kidney, Bladder and all Uric Acid Troubles.
Doctor Eberle and Doctor Braithwaite as well, as Doctor Simon all distin distinguished
guished distinguished authors agree, that whatever may be the disease, the urine seldom fails in

furnishing us with a clue to the principles upon which
it is to be treated, and accurate' knowledge concerning
the nature of disease can thus be obtained. If backache,
scalding urine or frequent urination bother or distress
you, or if uric acid in the blood has caused rheumatism,
gout or sciatica, or you suspect kidney or bladder trouble
just write DOCTOR Pierce, at the Surgical Institute,
Buffalo, N. Y. ; send a sample of urine and describe
symptoms. You will receive free medical advice after
Dr. Pierce's chemist has examined the specimen, which
will be carefully done without charge, and you will be
under no obligation. Qoctor Pierce, during many years
of experimentation has discovered a new remedy which
he finds is thirty-seven times more potent than lithia in
removing uric acid from the system. If you are suffering
from backache or pains of. rheumatism, go to your best
druggist and ask for a 50-cent box of "-Amine" put up

by Doctor Pierce. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription for weak women and
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery for -the blood have been favorably known
for the past: forty years and more. They are standard remedies to-day, as well as
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets for the liver and bowels. You can have a large trial
package of any of the above remedies for ten cents by writing Dr. Pierce. V.
