brothers. You can enter its bounda boundaries

One of the notable things about
this farm is that eighty years ago it
was the hunting ground of one of the
most famous Indians in history Os Osceola

Tecumseh and Sitting Bull a reputa reputa-ion
ion reputa-ion for bravery and generalship
which gave much trouble but was at
the last unavailing against the super superior
ior superior force of the white man.
A Star reporter accompanied Mr.
John L. Edwards in his car on a visit
to the farm Wednesday afternoon.
The route was a run out of the city
to and along the Dunnellon road to
the Stokes Ferry fork, and from
there east, to the other side of the big
Munroe & Chambliss farm. Both of
these farms lie on a beautiful rolling
country that would delight the eye of
the artist as well as the utilitarian.
The Stokes' Ferry road has reen
connected about five miles out of
town by a road running thru the
Shady Grove section to the Orange
avenue and Pedro road. It runs thru
some of the best farming land and
prettiest rural scenery in the county,
and people out for plea'sure rides
should be sure to turn their cars oc
casionally in that direction.
About two miles from the Dunnel Dunnellon
lon Dunnellon road, Mr. Edwards turned his car
from the highroad into the farm, the
centerspot of which seems to be a
pretty grove of trees some two hun hundreds
dreds hundreds yards north of the road. Here
it was that Osceola had his home. His
wigwam stood in this grove, and some
of the older trees may have looked
down on the famous Seminole chief chieftain
tain chieftain as he smoked the pipe, not of
peace, as he planned with his friends
a campaign against the intrusive
white man. About five miles away to
the northeast was Fort King, where
82 years ago last Christmas Osceola
struck the first blow of the Seminole
war, which for seven years taxed the
resources of the nation to cope with.
Too much sympathy has been wast wasted
ed wasted on the Seminoles. Infringed up upon
on upon by the whites they were, but they
were intruders themselves, driving out
the Florida Indians, the tracks of
whose moccasins were hardly cold in
the land when the Seminoles in their
turn fovftld themselves crowded by the
palefaces.. Osceola was a good gen general

triot as many a white man on whom
history has bestowed the same appe appe-lation,

bloodthirsty savage, and if Florida
had remained in the hands of him and
his kind it would have been of no
more use to the world than Arabia,
Afghanistan or any other-! region
where barbarians hold full sway.
Osceola's homeplace may have
looked more romantic eighty years
ago, but certainly not so useful. For
that, the neat buildings amid the tall
trees were a pretty sight themselves
and doubtless far more sanitary than
any Indian village ever was.
There was a big barn, a pumping
station, and some other buildings, all
in the Best of order, but the most in interesting
teresting interesting sight was the silos. There
is a regular battery of them, their
muzzles pointing like the muzzles of
huge cannon at the demon of war war-famine.

were laid, and the material for their
walls was stacked up nearby, ready to
be put in place.
Blessed be the man who invented
the silo he did more for civilization
than all the Michael Angelas, Beetho Beetho-vens,
vens, Beetho-vens, Ciceros arid such notable guys
put together. The silo is to the stock
raiser what the preserve jar is to the
housewife; only the housewife must
hermetically seal her preserve jar,
while the silo can be left open. It is
generally covered, but it does the feed
no harm if it isn't.
The whole works were there in
sight. There was a forest of corn,
two forty acre tracts, the blades from
the outside rows brushing the silos,
or they did before the cutting began.
There wras the harvester, pulled by
three mules, going down one row and
coming back the next, and leaving
the cut corn piled in even bunches all
along. There were big wagons, drawn
by sturdy mules and engineered by
husky farmhands, hustling the corn
to the silos. By one silo stood the
cutter, driven by a powerful little
gasoline engine. As fast as the wag wagons
ons wagons came up, their loads were dumped
by the cutter. The men operating
the cutter fed the stalks, ears, leaves


and all into the cutter, which chopped
it all fine and ran it into a feedpipe,
which by the force of suction carried
it up over the rim of the silo and
poured it down into it. A farmhand
inside swung the pipe around, pour pouring
ing pouring the feed in level and giving it a
light packing by walking on it. Econ Economy

hold from 120 to 150 tons each, and
will furnish the piece de resistance to
make a bunch of steers ready for the
butcher. Two silos were full, one
half full, and the one empty and two
to build will soon be full.
We looked over the adjacent corn
forest. The stalks were not so tall
but thick and heavily eared. They
grew on the old Taylor plantation,
where huge crops of cotton were
grown in ante-bellum days. The slack
methods of that day worked the land
Jout anad it was abandoned to the
birds and rabbits. We walked over
the same land, shooting birds, twenty
odd years ago. It was covered with
old field pines and wire grsas and
looked too poor for anything. Now
it raises twelve tons of corn to the
acre. It is raising something all the
time. Last year it was planted to
velvet beans or some other grazing
crop, the cattle were turned in on it
and it served its time as pasture.
Then it was planted in the corn
which is now being cut. As fast as
the corn is. out, the ground is planted
in sweet potatoes, from which only a
J moderate yield is expected. As soon
as the potatoes are gathered in the au autumn,

some other forage crop. It is at work
all the time, and the more it is work worked

the farm, where we could look back
over it, to the crest of the ridge a
mile or more away. There was more
corn down there; looked like pretty
good corn, but Mr. Edwards didn't
expect much of it; only twenty bush bushels
els bushels to the acre, but peanuts were
planted between the rows and would
change into ham and bacon as soon
as the hogs could be turned in.
The Edwards brothers don't buy
much for their farm except salt, and
sell hardly anything but meat. They
turn in cattle and hogs, some of their
own raising, some bought from their
neighbors, and turn them into Flor Florida

in Ocala and all over the state. They
look after their own business. Most
of their work is done by the poor,

some of them have been there a doz

Farming in Florida is like every
other business needs to be carried
on upon as large a scale as possible,
with the most improved appliances
and the most uptodate management.
There is always something that can
be done and there is never any time
when something shouldn't be doing.

gets me and what we country people
cannot understand, isLwhat difference
does it make whether a car has a
tail light burning or not inside the
city limits of Ocala. It is a foolish
proposition, and it makes the country
man dread to be caught in town after
dark, for fear of the consequence. I
know of one man whose tail light was
broken. He had one ordered. He had
to go to Ocala on business after dark.
He slipped into town, leaving his car
on the outskirts and hoofed it all
over that townfor several hours. This
is not an isolated case, but one of
many, and it hurts the city of Ocala
to have this ordinance on its books.
The newspapers have been profuse in
their warnings to autoists reerardinir
this obnoxious ordinance, and the
lesson has been well taken to heart,
and it hurts our feelings to have this
dread hanging over us for if there is
anything that a rural citizen dreads

And gently brushes tangles out,
And heals the scratch that hurts,
She searches in their hearts a well

And left a bitter thought.

She did not mean to scold."
And "Grandpa did not understand,
Poor Grandpa's getting old."
"I think To msaid that just in fun,
