A Scotch Port,. Tuesday, Feb. 13.
Up to tonight lli victims of the Tus Tuscania
cania Tuscania have been buried at different
points on the Scottish coast, divided
as follows: Americans, 131 identified;
33 unidentified; crew, four identified;
three unidentified. The last seventeen
of these, all Americans, were buried
this afternoon.
A correspondent of the Associated
Press who reached here this morning
with two American officers, after a
perilous journey from Ireland, is able
to give the first account of the last
moments of many of the 'American
victims who perished as a result of
Jhe Tuscania disaster and of pathetic
incidents attending their burial on
the bleak and rocky shores of this
barren coast.
The burial was at the water's edge
at the base of rocky cliffs and was
picturesque in the extreme. All the
tiny villages for miles around were
in mourning for the Americans and
farm and fisher folk came great dis distances

Twenty-five American v survivors of
the disaster who had been left be behind

the khaki clad troops tenderly placed
their dead comrades. Looking down
from the top of the cliffs 300 feet
above were the mourners, headed by
a British colonel and an American
private carrying an "Old Glory"
made for the occasion by a group oi
Scotch women.
Two clergymen came many miles
and read the Scotch, and Episcopal
services after which volunteers fired
three volleys, which reechoed against
the hillsides.
The ceremony was much the same
as was carried out at the same spot
on the previous day, when thirty-four
Americans were laid at, rest in two
other graves. So badly mutilated were
many of the bodies that two Ameri American

from London expressly for the pur purpose,

"Less cussing is heard in the train training

The Army and Navy Y. M. C. A. is

of the soldiers clean with its pro program

to buy anything i3 with money col

that, we do not believe it is any more
the business of the county to buy

to buy their clothes. We believe in

History of the Woman's Club from

The Woman's Club of Ocala was or organized,

Our club was organized by Mrs.
William Hocker, who became its first
president, holding office for three
years until she resigned to take the
presidency of the State Federation in
November, 1912. Upon Mrs. Hockers
resignation her first vice-president,
Mrs. Jack Camp, took over the respon responsibility,

Our organization is now made up of
fourteen departments, each working
in harmony with its chairman for the
best interests of the city, the home,
and especially the children. The his history

during the five years of our club's ex existence
istence existence would fill a volume. Scores
of enterprises for public benefit have
been started by our club, often to be
taken over later and continued by the
various city departments. f Among
the multitude of activities that have

had their origin in our club, one of

the most important was medical ex examination

being the first city in the state to

make tms forward movement. JNow

our city provides a physician whose
duty it is to be at the primary school

of the pupils are well, arid twice dur during
ing during the school year they are given a

thorough examination of eyes, teeth,
hearing, etc. He also inspects our

meat markets, dairies and bakeries.
An animal, protection committee was
a feature of our club work from the
beginning.

Since the meeting of the State

Federation in Ocala, in 1910, we have

maintained a study class, at first

W. Davis as chairman. Since the re removal

their gardens and awarding prizes,
and best of all the establishment and
supervision of a municipal rest room,
for which the city now provides the
necessary funds. This very worthy
enterprise was started some years
ago by the Junior Civic League, which
did a very much appreciated work,
though hampered by lack of funds
till the city came to the rescue. We

now have a public rest room that for
neatness, convenience and sanitary
conditions will compare favorably
with those of much larger cities. The
recent "Made in Marion" banquet was
a decided success socially and finan.
cially, and reflected great credit on
the committee.

Our annual Clean Up Week was

the enterprise of our civic committee,

also the placing of trash cans about

the business section of the city. i

Through the efforts of our educa-i

tional committee the military drill

has been established in our public

school, Ocala being the first city in
the state to take up that work. It

has also provided" tie necessary dishes
for the domestic science department,

and a planetarium for the study of
our solar system; and has funds in
hand to provide a splendid piano for

the high school.

We also have other makes at a lower price.
For gardening hand tools we have the "Planet Junior" seed driHs and single wheel hoes
It is a pleasure to use them, as they do the work so perfectly and easily.

Story of a Lenten Prayer
In a dim cathedral's recess, I stood at
the close of day,
Twas in Lent, that time of fasting,
when all of us think to pray.
Hidden from view near the altar,
where myriad candles gleamed,
I -thought of my prayer unanswered,
of the joys I had only dreamed,
When into my mind came the memory
of a twice-told nursery tale
How a prayer made before a candle
could never fail.
I forgot for the blessed moment that
the prayer if just and right,
Should have long ago been answered
by the God of power and might,
I forgot that the prayer was a world worldly
ly worldly one and that worldly pray prayers
ers prayers were vain:
That-Wisdom and Truth, and Good Goodness
ness Goodness are the things we should
seek to gain.
I remembered the rest of the story
we must kneel by the altar
stair.

5 And with Faith in our- hearts, un

shrinking, must light a candle
there.
Quick, lest the memory vanish or
foolish the story seem,
1 knelt and lit me a candle then by
its flickering beam
I prayed for that which in all the
world I wanted the most to
gain.
And vowed to forego all lesser joys,
if my plea was not in vain.
Selected.
Lent
Today, Ash Wednesday, is the be beginning
ginning beginning of Lent which means the
forty days fast preceding Easter,
which is observed by Catholics and
Episcopalians. Sundays during Lent
are neither fast days, nor days of
abstinence. There are many who
yearly inquire just what the ashes on
the foreheads of Catholics mean. On
this day (Ash Wednesday) all the
faithful according to ancient custom
are exhorted to receive on their fore foreheads
heads foreheads the sign of the cross in ashes

from the priest, while he says "Re "Remember
member "Remember man that thou art dust and
unto dust thou shalt return." The
ashes used are made by the burning
of the ,remains of palms blessed on
Palm Sunday of the previous year.
Valentine Ideas
St. Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, comes
around again tomorrow, Thursday,
and is the proper occasion for the
sending of letters and lover's tokens,
such as books, flowers or candy, and
of course, the cards with the usual
quotations, the old theme possibly in

a different style. As in Chaucer's

"Parliament of Foules" we find, "Foi
this was on Seynt Valentine's day,

whan eyery foul cometh thir to choose

his mate," which refers to the Eng English
lish English and French belief in the middle
ages that on the 14th of February the
birds began to pair. As the years roll
by,, the young folks at their (Valen (Valentine
tine (Valentine parties, still go through the old
schemes of "pretending" to find out
who their future husband or wife
shall be.
The following game of "Fate"
causes much merriment and several
trials may be given:
With very little trouble a heart heart-shaped
shaped heart-shaped target of white muslin may be
prepared with a heart painted of
green on the outside, one of black, a
third of yellow, fourth blue, fifth red.
This will look like a series of hearts.
Fasten the target against the wall
and give each guest, a "fate" card.
When the arrows are shot the color
upon which they hit determines the
fate of the shooter. The bows and
arrows may be purchased at a toy
store, or one bow and half a dozen
arrows may be made at home "and will
answer instead of one for each per person.

heart, the "fate" card indicates that:
"Love and riches wait, I ween,
Him or her who hits the green."
"Should your arrow pierce the blue,
Love is on the wing for you."
"She who passes colors all
Has loves many at her call."
"Loveless, weeping little maid,
If 'the arrow pierces red."
"Into the black,
Nary a smack."
"He who" pierces one and all,
His chance to wed is very small."
