of $100,000 must be raised in Florida.
There are 8,000 Florida soldiers in
the field, the people of this state are
asked to give $100,000, thus it can be
seen that each Florida soldier would
receive $12.50 were the money to be

THE LIGHT AND WATER PLANT
The people of Ocala are justly peev
ed over the bad conduct of the oil
enginPat the city plant. Its evident
that a very large and particularly
sour lemon was handed the city when
this engine was put in.
This' however is no fault of the
council. 'The fault lies between the
engineers and the contractor.
When the council let the contract,
it acted according to law. It gave the
contract to the firm making the best
bid.'; When it employed engineers, it
employed the firm that had the best
recommendations. A council of other
men might have made the same mis-
take, or a worse one. And it might
not." There is nothing to go by but
the result.. So far as we can see, the
critics of 4 the council -and we've
known them all for years are no
more competent and no more honest
than the men now m office. We beg
to f remind the public of the well well-proven

critic, and the more criticising, a man
does, the less he generally does of

The people are not generalfy aware1when an Atlantic Coast Line train is
of another fact, and that is that the
plant is not fully paid for. Enough
money has been held back to have it
finished properly. The inconveniences

mation inflammation is set up in the nearby tissues.
. Hague has said, that gout is -rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout." If uric acid is formed in excess
within the body it'is passed on to the kidneys, which
act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such storage' are in the"
joints, muscle sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,
est, weakest, and where also the alkalinity of the bloody is lowest.
Consequently we must do everything to throw off this
uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. FJush
the kidneys by-drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded.
Eat less meat, drink more water, and take ANURIC
(double or triple strength), after each meal and at
bed time for several weeks at a time and you will be
free from uric acid and the diseases that follow.
The urine is often cloudy, full of sediment;
channels often get sore and sleep is disturbed two
or three times a night. This is the time you should ;
consult some physican of wide experience such as

escorted us to the army, where a
"Welcome Tea" awaited us. There
was the invocation by Rev. L. D. Lowe
and music by school orchestra-Mayor
John F. Cox in his greeting assured
lis that in these days of conservation,
wheatless days, etc., we would not
find Lakeland a "foodless" town.
Greetings came from the church, the
chamber of commerce, school, Loyal
Temperance Legion and local W. C. T.
U. Great tributes were made to the
women who had done so much toward
" Willardizing" the nation. A large
white bow, resplendent with small
electric lights was the gift -of Cocoa Cocoa-nut

Miss Minnie E. Neal's address was
a most excellent one on Wednesday

came from Miss Anna A. Gordon at

Neal tied the white ribbon upon them.
Press work and the importance of ad

Stevens' addresses were most forceful
and listened to with the utmost inter

was most impressive.
"Tried plans" from various unions
was a fine feature. Miss Minnie E.
Neal was again chosen president and
presented with a purse from the
unions. Resolutions were beautifully
framed for the Lakeland union which
was so generous, in entertaining the

amount. There were 150 delegates
and many visitors and the convention
was pronounced the best of any pre previous

Ocalans took a prominent part on the
