past four months, not including inter interest

1.75 cents per K. W. hour. After
some discussion the Messrs. Camp
stated that the best price per K. W.
hour that the Florida Power Co. could
offer the city was 2 cents and that the
minimum period for which they would
be willing to contract would be de-.
pendent upon the guaranteed K. W.

stated further that they could not
compete with the cost at switchboard
as figured by the city manager, but
that they questioned seriously the ac

that an opinion by an expert consult

HAMMACK WANTS TO
GET AT THE HUNS
Ocala, July 16, 1918.
William E. Hammack of this city,
volunteered his services in the field
artillery at the recruiting station
in the federal building in Ocala, and
left for Fort Screven, Ga., to do his
bit for his country. Mr. Hammack
stated that he wanted to get into
some branch of the" service where he
could kill the enemy by the hundreds,
so the artillery is the place for men
who are red-blooded and who have the
nerve to face the enemy, like this boy
of 18 years of age. The recruiting
officer was very glad to see the com comfort
fort comfort kit which the Red Cross gave
this boy upon his departure, as a man
who volunteers to give his life to a
cause in this great war is entitled to
more than a man who hangs back and
has to be made-to go. I have sent
away about twenty-two men from
Ocala alone, and this is the first boy
that the Red Cross gave anything to.
However, this boy was tickled to
death with the comfort kit and it
made him feel like there was some
one who appreciated his going to do
his bit. Mr. Hammack stated that he
will never forget the Red Cross.
Now, all you red-blooded men of
volunteer ages, come up and offer
your services. We need men from the
ages of 18 to 21 and 32 to 40. Why
not go now ? You may wait until it is
too late, then you will wish that you
had got in, even if you do not get
across the pond. What are you going
to say to the boys when they come
back from over there when they ask
you what you did while they were
gone? What will f your answer be?
There have been over 150 colored
men to apply for enlistment here in
the last month and as we are not
taking colored volunteers now I had
to turn them away, and they looked
very sad when they found out that
they could not get in.
For further information call on
or write the recruiting officer, U. S.
army, Ocala, Fla. Charles Aler,
Recruiting Officer.
Mr. William Camp left Tuesday af-
ernoon for Lake Toxaway, N. C,
where he will spend the remainder of
the summer at the mountain home of
his sister, Mrs. G. F. Armstrong of
Savannah. William is doing his best
to enlist in the government service.
His size arid weight are against his
going into the line of either the army
or navy, but he has a natural talent
for machinery, which he has constant constantly,
ly, constantly, improved, and as he is intensely
loyal it will pay Uncle Sam to take
him on. William could easily obtain
work at high wages in any shipbuild shipbuilding
ing shipbuilding plant or munition works, but he
would rather work for Uncle Sam at
a dollar a day than make five or six
with a private corporation.

JUDGE WM. A. HOCKER

morning that Judge Wm. A. Hocker,
one of the leading citizens and jurists
of Florida, had passed away at a san sanitarium

was taken for an operation two days

Judge Hocker was one of our old oldest,

to Florida from Virginia when a
young man and most of his life since
has been passed in Ocala, Leesburg
and Tallahassee. He was one of the
leaders of the Marion county bar and
served two terms as judge of the fifth
judicial circuit. He was appointed

until he voluntarily retired.

No citizen of Florida was more

his death will be mourned alike by
our public men and his most humble

a fact that they are never the same
after a genuine fright of this sort. In
this relation a Tallahassee man tells
of one saurian he encountered. He
had been staying at Ocala and finally
agreed with several friends to hunt in
the south. Some distance from town
they located on a small stream. After
pitching camp he went for a walk,
and before long he found a 'gator

issuing therefrom he knew the owner
must be at home. He decided to cap capture

a long pole into the burrow. Finally
they heard, a snap like the report of a
gun, and the pole remained fast. The
'gator had seized it. They tried vainly
to pull him out. Then someone sug suggested
gested suggested that they try their camp mule.
The mule was led down to the hole, a
chain was fastened to him and the
pole, and the frightened animal was
started. There was a creaking of
chains, a roar, and an alligator fully
seven feet in length came out with &
rush as the mule started on a wild
run for the road. The saurian's teeth
were sunk so deeply into 'the pole
that he could not release himself, and
away went the mule, pole and all. The
alligator spun 'round, hissing like a
steam engine; but he held on, while
the mule, thinking himself pursued,
snorted and ran. The men followed.
Into the main street of Ocala flew the
mule and his queer load. Completely
exhausted, he was stopped by a party
of men near the postoffice. The alli alligator

and stuffed him. The mule recovered,
but the sight of a swamp now throws
him into a perfect frenzy of terror."

WHAT A NEWSPAPER MEANS

Seme Truths That the Average Man
May Not Have Realized, but
Here They Are.
What does the newspaper mean to
you?
There is so much news no one can
carry all" of It. Someone must make
selection.' Do you appreciate how
much depends upon this selection?
Upon the selection and emphasis of
the news depends the picture of the
world upon which your Judgments are
based-
If a business man, your decision In
business is affected by the newspaper
you read.
In politics your opinions as a YOter
are swayed by them.
By what your wife reads you can
see the trend of many of her Interests
and needs.
You have your thought turned In
a new channel perhaps by what you
read, and, when you find others con concerned
cerned concerned as you are and that the Idea
has been followed in their brains as
in yours, you possibly discover how
you can do collectively what you alone
never could accomplish.
The newspaper enlarges the view viewpoint

ALL WILLING TO PAY FARES
Reason Why Citizens of Lima, Peru,
Do Not Seek to Evade Their
Street Car Obligations.
If fare registers were to be placed
in the street cars of Lima, Peru, there
would be a loud protest. This is not
because it is easier to dodge the con conductor
ductor conductor under the prevailing system.
On the contrary, the travelers of Lima
are willing, even anxious, to pay their
fares. Perhaps that doesn't seem hu human,
man, human, but the explanation is that upon
receipt of the fare a numbered ticket
is presented to the passenger, and it
is a valuable lottery ticket.
The car lines are divided Into four
sections for the monthly and semi semimonthly
monthly semimonthly drawings conducted by the
railway company. In the three impor important

Silkworms of the Sea.
Plenty of worms live in the sea,
and some of them are very beautiful
creatures. ; Which latter fact ought to
be consoling to ourselves, Inasmuch as
there are naturalists who contend that
1 he earliest ancestor of the human race
was a marine worm. But the so-called
"silkworm of the sea" the designation
being purely figurative and poetical
is a bivalve mollusk properly known
as the "pinna" and native to the Medi Mediterranean.

very strong. Cleaned, dried and passed
through combs, it is reduced to deli delicate

Great Tibetan Industry.
By far the largest herds of musk

shores of the Koko-Nor, and the sup supply

larger than the quantity that comes

at all, but are sent east to Yuchow,

Shark Leather Here.

A DOLLAR W ASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And. if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.
