The home of Mr. and Mrs. S. T.
Sistrunk has for years been a place
yielding to none in the happiness and
kindness dispensed from it, but the
shadow of sadness has lain heavily
upon it of late. Not yet had been dis
persed the sorrow brought upon it by
the death of the bright little girl
guest from Tennessee, when the man
ly son, the household's chief hope, was
stricken down and taken before his
loved ones could even bid him fare
All day yesterday, as the remains
of the brave young man, clad in the
pure white of his naval uniform, lay
in their casket in the parlor of his
late home, sad-faced friends came to
look upon him for the last time. Many
tears were dropped upon the almost
flower-hidden casket. He was a well
beloved boy. He was always so will
ing and glad to help a friend. And
he had no enemies.
The little home would not hold the
friends that came to bid him the last
farewell this morning. They filled
the yard and street for a block in
each direction. Everybody in town
who could go went. Scores came in
from the country, particularly from
his parents' old home in the north
west of the county. The board of
county commissioners attended in a
body and with them most of the
county officials.
It was Ocala's first military funeral
of the war. All the officers of Com
pany A, two" squads under Corporal
Effinger with rifles, as a guard of
honor,, and nearly all the other mem members
bers members of the company in town, with
out arms, were present.
Rector Ottman of the Episcopal
church, assisted by Rev. -Bunyan
Stephens, conducted the brief but
touching services, and a choir consist consisting

Mrs. C. E. Winston and Miss Musie
Bullock, sang the comforting hymn,
"Safe in the Arms of Jesus."
The officers of Company A, accom accompanied

the captain reverently laid the colors
on the young sailor's coffin. Then
the pall bearers, Robert Tydings,
Niel Ferguson, Robert MacKay, Ed Edward
ward Edward Nelson, Bernard Koonce and
Julian Bullock, all among the dead
boy's close friends, bore the casket to
the hearse. They were followed by
the sorrowing relatives, the mother,
sister and aunt of the departed clad
in pure white mourning. They were
accompanied by the good old colored
"mammy," the family servant for
years, -who found the wounded boy
immediately after the fatal accident
and vainly tried to give him aid.
With the soldiers preceding and
following the hearse, and nearly half
a mile of autoes in the procession, the
sad cortege wended its way to Green Greenwood,
wood, Greenwood, where the grave had been made
on the western slope of the city, of the
dead. There more friends waited; there

Stephens raised his Voice in prayer.

bune. Tribune. We are, glad to see the Tribune
criticise the ridiculous and extrava extravagant
gant extravagant conduct of the governor-in re regard
gard regard to the Miles trial. To begin
with, he sent two companies of troops
from Tampa to Jacksonville to take
Miles to Tampa. The railroad fare
alone of these two companies must
have cost 'the state $1200, probably
more. Then Catts "mobilized" two
additional companies of infantry (four
in all) and a machine gun squad at
least 250 men and sent them with
the prisoner to Bradentown, where
they have remained for five days, at
the expense of at least $1 per man a
day. Two companies of infantry and
me macnine gun squaa are to remain
at Bradentown until the negro is
hung, which may be Friday. All in
all, the trial and execution of this
criminal will cost not less than $4000.
In addition to this, the men are with withdrawn
drawn withdrawn from their homes and business
for a week or more to serve for 50
cents a day, which will not be paid
them for weeks, perhaps months.
We thought that in calling out the
entire force of state troops to put
down a street car strike in Jackson Jacksonville,
ville, Jacksonville, Gov. Gilchrist had committed
the champion militaristic damphool damphool-ishness
ishness damphool-ishness of Florida, but Catts has Gil Gilchrist
christ Gilchrist beaten clear out of sight. It
was the governor's duty to see the
negro was protected, and that he had
a fair trial, but not more than one
company, in addition to the local
company, was needed for the duty. It
was not necessary to send two com com-panied
panied com-panied to Jacksonville to take Miles
to Tampa. A couple of squads would
have been amply sufficient. Forty of
the men who have been on the border,
with their rifles, in an ordinary jail
building, could drive off any mob
that could be assembled in this state
outside of one of the bigger cities.
We had a rape fientl in the Marion
county jail a little less than five years
ago. He was guarded by our locan
company, less than thirty men. As Assisting
sisting Assisting the sheriff and a couple of
deputies, they brought him from the
jail to the courthouse thru a threat threatening
ening threatening assemblage, stood guard over
him while he was being tried and took
him back to the jail. They stood
guard over the jail three or four days
and nights, not more than half of
them on duty at a time. Then the
sheriff and two deputies carried the
negro to Tampa one night. A few
. weeks later, the sheriff, alone, brought
the man back to Ocala for execution.
We have rio idea that more than
forty or fifty men were needed to
guard Miles, and the xommissioners
of Manatee should refuse to allow
their county to pay any expense in
excess of that amount.

Bankers Removed $250,000 Because of
It, and Building Caught Fire

Broadway, one recent afternoon.
So the firm Immediately moved $250,
000 in cash and securities to the vaults

Something did happen. Fire started
in the building, and early the next day
firemen were fighting a stubborn blaze

Dense volumes of suffocating smoke
poured out of the building, permeating
the pressrooms of the Journal of Com

What the Rabbit Costs Australia.
. The state of South Australia has,
since 1891, erected 29,148 miles "of
"vermin fences," enough to encircle
the globe and with the remnant build
a double line of fence along the south
ern border of the United States. When
contracts now running are completed
the mileage will be much increased.
New South Wales has expended over
$27,000,000 for rabbit extermination and
has within Its borders 98,000 miles of
fence. One of West Australia's fences
extends entirely across the continent.
Of late years the rabbit has been re repaying
paying repaying in part for his keep paying
board, as It were. He goes to swell
the total of food exports from the
commonwealth. Along the country
roads rabbits may be seen hung on
the fences awaiting the passage of the
rabbit carts which convey them to the
packing houses to be prepared for
shipment as frozen meat and hides.
Practically all are exported (the Aus Australian
tralian Australian does not eat "vermin"), and
during 1913 frozen rabbit and hare to
the value of 1,400,000 and skins to the
value of $3,000,000 were sent from
commonwealth ports.

A bar of hard steel is cut rapidly t

This is caused by the intense heat
produced by the friction; the heat, be being

. Preventing Disease.
' The only way to prevent such dis diseases
eases diseases from spreading is for every child
who has a cold, a ""tough or a sore
throat or feels out of sorts to be very
careful not to put In its mouth or to
cough over or to handle anything
which other children are to use. A
child who is not absolutely well should
be particularly careful to keep away
from babies, because babies are so
much more likely to suffer seriously If
they catch disease.
Panama Lions.
The Hon of the Panama jungle is of
two kinds black and tawny. Full

His breast Is broad, like that of a bull bulldog
dog bulldog ; his legs are long ; his head is
square, but catlike. He growls like a
lion, but ends with a bark. He has
never been known to attack man, but
the natives of the Jungle fear him. He
would be a dangerous adversary at
close quarters.
Love of Approbation.
Everyone likes to be approved. The
most rudimentary of human units, the
eight-year-old papoose, or the grown
Hottentot, Is gratified by the praise
won by the fish brought from the pond,
or the deer flung over the shoulder as
