SILVER SPRINGS

Is One of the Most Useful as Well!
the Most Beautiful Attributes
of Ocala
Hernando de Soto discovered Sill
ver Springs in A. D. 1539, but we do
not believe the people of Ocala really
discovered it until the summer of
1916, tho of course most of them
were aware in a general way that it
was there.
The only reason they discovered it
then was "that Ed. Carmichael put up
a big bathhouse and did other things
to make it a very pleasant place for
them to go to. Its dollars to dough-
nuts that 75 per cent, of those who
bathed there last summer never stnn-

it was, and how much greater one it

and finally driving them away.
So Silver Springs remained the
better part of a century, its rare
beauty asserting itself against neg neglect,
lect, neglect, observed by almost every visitor
but disregarded by most of those at
home.
In the last few years, Mr. Carmich
ael has been improving the surround surroundings
ings surroundings to the springs, and in the last
two, he has (or he says his wife has)
been trying to beautify them, and al although
though although the work has been against
considerable disadvantages and dis discouragement,
couragement, discouragement, there is almost as much
difference between the Silver Springs
cr today and the Silver Springs of a
quarter of a century ago as there was
between the Silvef Springs of 1890
and the Silver Springs of 1539.
What strikes the eye most impres impressively
sively impressively is cutting out the undergrowth
or. the north side of the river. The
Star reporter stood the other day in
the pavilion and looked east along the
river and reflected to himself that
there was then a more unobstructed
view down the stream than there had
been at any time since the day prob probably
ably probably tens of thousands of years ago,
when the new vegetation rising from
the soil first clad the banks of the
river in green. This is going to
make a very great attraction, and will
be better appreciated by our home
folks who know how it has looked up
to the last few weeks, and can soon
see the entire silver band of the river
to the point1 where it looks like it
falls over the rim in its rush down
thru the canon of the cypress walls
toward the Oklawaha.
In the last few weeks, Mr. Carmi
chael, beside having this underbrush
cut out has had the low places on the
eastern side of the spring filled with
clean sand, which the Oklawaha-Val
ley railroad has patriotically hauled
in for him. The old Robinson boat-
house, which stood on the little point
at that side has been removed. These
three things make a wonderful im improvement,
provement, improvement, and clearing out of brush
and filling in of the low places is go going

to the end of the springs has been
improved.
The low place to the north of the

works at what is and can be. As we
all know,- he has little help and con considerable
siderable considerable hindrance in carrying put
his plans, but he has fought onward
and gone a considerable way toward
making Silver Springs a- river, port
and pleasure-park for Ocala.
Last year, Mr. Carmichael had the
low ground on this side of the spring
cleared and filled, making quite a
nice park. Then he put up a neat
and roomy building with many dress dressing
ing dressing rooms for the accomodation 'of
people who wanted to bathe, and had
it ready for them at. the beginning of
the season. It took greatly, and al almost
most almost every summer afternoon and
evening, there were from scores to
hundreds of people either in swim swimming
ming swimming or watching the swimmers. It
was then that Ocala really discovered
Silver Springs.
This last season was a great suc success,
cess, success, and Mr. Carmichael is going to
make the next one more so. He has
cleared away the old pavilion at the
water's edge, and built further back
from the shore a new one of two
stories. The upper story is a danc dancing

it filled every weekday evening next
summer.-
He is now having the old freight
warehouse removed, and when that is
done, the shore will be clear of all the
shabby structures that have partly
obscured it. He has an adequate elec electric
tric electric plant, and in a short time the
shores and waters' of the springs will
be illuminated by this best of lights.
In the meantime, he has been pre preparing

which he has good promise for this
season. That swift and elegant little
beat, the "City of Ocala," has been
overhauled, and will leave on her first

has a good passenger list booked, and
will make three round trips a week.

had become. We received fifty-three,

A noticeable feature of the civic
Christmas tree celebration was the
presence of an unusually large num number

children. It is to be hoped they will
be here in even greater number next

be any use in anything if the beau beautiful

An interesting though disgusting
spectacle of Christmas was a gang of
f darkies that stuck to the back door

of the Southern Express Co's. office
like a swarm of flies to a splash of
molasses. They had ordered whisky
from Jacksonville, and were waiting
to have it handed out. A great many
were disappointed, the Jacksonville
houses, for some reason, being unable
to fill their orders. Some of these
poor devils didn't have money enough
to buy necessities, let alone Christ-
mas presents. There should be a law
prohibiting shipping whisky into dry
counties.' Every dollar such silly peo people
ple people send away for liquor is utterly
wasted and deprives their neighbors
as well as themselves of that much
aid to prosperity.

A very important meeting of the
Board of Trade is to be held Friday

thing the business men are vitally

Into a morn ol lignt:

If His great light had never stream-

And raise our voices loud v
To thank the God of Christmas time
For love and peace and song
For every merry, cheery chime
That swells the tide along!

If Christmas morn had never smiled

On stockings hung at night,
To greet the wide-eyed happy child
With presents shining bright
If. fife and drum and baby horn
Had made no Christmas sound,
Sweeter far than Handel's "storm"

(Vicksburg Evening Post)
One of the finest entertainments

from a purely amusing standpoint to

ever visit this city is the Coburn min

strel aggregation. Aside from the

excellent cpmedy, the music also was

of a high grade.

Mr. Gano departed from the con

ventional minstrel opening by arrang

ing a scene where a delegation of Am

erican tourists visited the rajah s

palace in India and were received by

his majesty, who acted as interlocu

tor. The costumes were brilliant
and very pleasing with the contrast

ing colors of red and green. The
stage setting was attractive and un

usual.

The soloists and chorus sang many

catchy songs. The numbers were

brand new and the voices far above
the average. The orchestra carried
by the aggregation played both clas

sical and ragtime music with equal

dexterity and spirit.

An act which created a furor of

laughter was the comedy acrobats.
The hair-raising tumbles taken by
the clown caused the audience to gasp
more than once, and when it was real

ized that the acrobat was uninjured,
the house came down with applause.
The comedy work through this act

was of a new variety and kept the

audience in convulsions of laughter.

The musical trio which furnished

melody and harmony from a great

variety of instruments were repeated repeatedly
ly repeatedly encored. The saxa phone and

xlyphone work was especially admir

able. The audience could not get
enough of it, and they were forced to
respond to repeated encores.

The comedians were all good, es

pecially Gano and his mule. The final

afterpiece was one continuous laugh.

For originality and general clever-
. m ja a V t J

ness, this is one ,01 tne most note

worthy companies to ever visit the
