In the matter of charging off small
tax 'items as has been the custom, on
account of the expense of collecting
same, we are inclined .to think that
your auditor is right in this and that
all certificates should, bs collected,
and not charged off as -heretofore.
We think that the assessment liens
for paving should be collected at the
earliest possible date, and that the
city attorney should be instructed to
proceed against vthe property owners
at once. The amount due on these
assessments, $9235.28, should be m
the treasury, so that the' millage
could be kept down at the lowest pos possible
sible possible amount. -; ;
We ''think that the recommendation
as to inventories being taken at the
end of the calendar year by the heads
of the different departments and that
the. general ledger of the city should
contain the information as suggested
along these, lines, good, and should be
adopted. ; v
We 'believe thatthe suggestion of
the auditor as to the keeping a record
of the deposits i of electric and water
consumers a good one and think it
should be carried out. vv :,
We heartily agree with the auditor
in his recommendation as to the rate
for electric lighting and power being
raised to a point where the plant will
be self -supporting not only as to the
actual cost of maintenance, but that
the plant should provide its own sink sinking
ing sinking fund and bond interest fund as
well as take care of the depreciation.
We therefore recommend that the
lighting rate be put back to the old
rate of 8c. per killowat hour, and that
the power rates be raised one cent
throughout the schedule over 'the ex existing
isting existing rates, this being. c- under the
rate recommended by your city man
ager. Unless this is" done the city
faces a deficiency that will certainly
have to be made up by increased
millage on the general taxes.
We also agree with' the auditor as

Nailed by the St.. Louis Republic
Lie No. 1. That Mr. Joseph P. Tu Tumulty,
multy, Tumulty, secretary to President Wilson,
was found guilty of treason, sent to
Fort Leavenworth, stood up against
a wall and shot.
(Secretary Tumulty,' in an -official
communication," has nailed this as a
lieWithout any foundation.)

Lie No. 2. That a sweater knit in
St.-Louis for the soldiers in France,
was sold by Red Cross workers and
identified by the woman who knit it by
a piece of currency sewed into the
fabric.
(Heads of the Red Cross Society in
St. Louis have branded .this as a bald
fabrication. Nothing handled by the
Red Cross is sold.)
Lie No. 3. That all the boys arid
men between the ages of 15 and 35
years of age are to be drafted into
the army by January 1.
(Congress fixed the ages of men
subject to the draft at 21 to 31 years,
inclusive, and has never changed this
rule.) ' ," v ,'

Lie No. 4. That tobacco collected
through the various agencies for the
men overseas is not given to them
until they have paid from 50 cents to
$2.50 a package for it.
(The 'Republic brands this a lie.
The Republic has sent several x thou thousand
sand thousand dollars worth of tobacco to
France, and not one cent has been
charged the soldiers for it.)

by many women who should have

The different uses of tonnage terms
when speaking of ships are causes of
confusion to the lay mind. Why ships
cannot be really compared according

to tonnage is explained by CapL C. A.

McAllister, engineer In chief, United
States coast enarcL in. an article In

Popular Science Monthly. For example,

he states, steamship companies, in or

der to Impress relative safety of their

craft, will advertise the sailing of t
certain steamer of 20,000 tons, mean
ing, of course, gross tons. The com company's
pany's company's agent. In entering It at the cus
torn house, will take precaution to cer

tify that she Is only 7340 tons, when

paying tonnage taxes. He then Is re referring
ferring referring to her net tonnage, and In fact
that standard Is used oniy when pay

ing dues or taxes.
Displacement tonnage Is almost, ex

clusively applied to warships, as they

do not carry cargoes Strange to say.

the tonnage of a battleship varies al almost
most almost hourly, as coal or other weighty

oblects are used or taken on board.

The tonnage of warships Is, however,

fixed ; they are referred to in terms of

the fixed tonnage.

A statement that a 10,000-ton battle battleship
ship battleship sank a 10,000-ton merchant ship

does not mean that the ships were of

equal size. The merchant ship would

be much larger, owing to the different

meanings of the term "ton," as applied

to the two trees of vessels. It is abso

lutely impossible to give rules for the

relation of these terms, as the cpndl

tlons vary too greatly. Generally speak speaking,
ing, speaking, the gross tonnage of a ship Is from
50 to 100 per cent greater than the net

tonnage.

Sounds Baffling Science.

Mystery still attaches to certain ex-

rplosive sounds, heard In various parts
'of the world and known to science as

"brontides." On the coast of Belgium

(says Popular Science Monthly, these

'sounds seem to come from the sea,

and are called locally "mlstpoeffers."
In the Ganges delta of India similar
sounds are called "Barisal guns."
Brontides are well known In some
parts of Italy, where they bear a great
variety of names. In Hayti a sound of
this character is known as the gouf gouf-fre,"
fre," gouf-fre," while In parts of Australia It is
called the "desert sound." Brontides
mostly take the form of muffled deto detonations,
nations, detonations, of indefinite direction. Prob Probably
ably Probably they are of subterranean origin.
Studies of eccentricities In fhe trans transmission
mission transmission of sound through the atmos atmosphere
phere atmosphere lead to the conclusion that sodjp
of the sounds hitherto reported as

brontides were really due to cannonad cannonading
ing cannonading or blasting.

General Remarks
Labor is scarce, high, very unsatis
factory and about 50 per cent effi
cient. Wood is being received in suf
ficient quantity to meet our present
need, but it is difficult for us to secure
a delivery for reserve supply.
The grate intakes recently installed
on Fort King avenue seem to take
all flood 4water from that drainage
area. Many of our sidewalks are
needing repairs; the" abutting proper

ty owners should be notified to give
them immediate attention.
Many of our citizens deposit all
their refuse trash and sweepings over
the curb and in the gutter. This is a

violation of the ordinance, a menace
to the traveling "public and entails an
extra cost upon the city for removal
of same and for cleaning out the
drain pipes which become choked
during each hard rain. Frequent calls
are made upon us to send carts and
men to haul trash refuse from private
yards and premises. This should be
discontinued, as it is an extra burden
upon our financial funds and savors
of paternalism.
Our brick streets show many sag sag-holes,
holes, sag-holes, depressions and irregular sur surfaces.
faces. surfaces. We should at once have these
repaired. Our lime surface streets
need reworking; especially is this
true of Oklawaha avenue. We are
without sufficient limestone to keep
up proper repairs and cannot buy oil
with which to resurface. Therefor,
I recommend that we enter into some
mutually satisfactory arrangement
with the county commissioners where
by we can get lime from solne nearby
pit, in exchange for use of our crusher
and power furnished them. I also
recommend that we have concrete
gutters built on Oklawaha avenue.
Mulberry trees growing near
enough to drop the fruit on side sidewalks
walks sidewalks should be condemned as a
nuisance and ordered cut. The fruit
riot only litters and makes slippery
the pavement, but affords a breeding
place for flies in abundance.
Some of our, citizens dig into the
streets without permits. This prac practice
tice practice is a violation of the law and must
be stopped. No municipality can have
a successful and economic govern government,
ment, government, unless the laws are respected.
Respect for the law is had only by
enforcement of .the law.
In conclusion your attention is call called,
ed, called, to the. very low rate for electric
light and power service you are now
making to the public. It might be well
to consider raising ths rates, consis consistently,
tently, consistently, proportionate to the gross
cost, of operation and maintenance of
the plans and transmission system.
- Since Mr. Cleveland quit the san sanitary
itary sanitary service of the city, we have
divided that part of the work between
Mr. Akin and Mr. Marsh, Mr. Marsh
taking charge of the street sweeping,
stock feeding .and trash hauling, and
Mr. Akin the sanitary Inspection, dis disinfecting
infecting disinfecting premises, garbage and in installation
stallation installation of sanitary cans.
Respectfully submitted,
J. N. Johnston, City Mgr.

SOME GOOD ADVICE
Strengthened by Ocala Experience
Kidney disease is too dangerous to
neglect. At the first sign of backache
headache, dizziness or urinary disor disorders,
ders, disorders, you should give the weakened
kidneys prompt attention. Eat little
meat, take things easier and use a re reliable
liable reliable kidney tonic. There's no other
kidney medicine so well recommended
as Doan's Kidney Pills. Ocala people
rely on them. Here's one of the many
statements from Ocala people.
C. C. French, carpenter, 103 W.
Sanchez street, says: "Doan's Kid Kidney
ney Kidney Pills did me more good than
anything else I ever used. I had been
having attacks of backache and trou trouble
ble trouble with my kidneys for some time.
It made me feel miserable and run

Doan's Kidney Pills, I got relief. I
have relied on this medicine ever
since."
