No matter how brave a man may

chasm, even tho' he knows the barrier

Of such courage and conscience
was Sergeant Oliver J. Remington,
who lost his life near Ocala Saturday
afternoon. Denied the satisfaction of

fluttered a few hundred yards like a

As our people all well know, two
planes from Dorr. Field landed here
Friday afternoon. They were manned
byv Lieutenants Harris Feast and. C.
F. Carter, Sergeants O. J. Remington
and C. B. Means. They stopped here
to survey the town and vicinity, to
see if a suitable landing place could
be found to make Ocala a station on
the aerial mail route between Tampa
and Jacksonville. They were all fine
young men and were made very wel welcome

Having completed : their survey,
they decided to make a start for th
next point, which we presume would
have been Gainesville. A number of
people were at the field to see them
start. Both planes were about the
middle of the field, facing toward
Ocala. The industrial school was
about 500. yards behind them; The
plane manned by Lieut. Feast and
Sergeant Remington started first. It
ran down the field toward town, made
a curve, started back toward the
school and began, to rise. Those
watching, it saw it was having diffi difficulty.

of trees east of the field, drop sudden suddenly

seconds a column of fire and smoke

The other plane, in which were
Lieut. Carter and Sergeant Means

a minute or so after the first place,
but the moment the first plane rose

comrades. With- them went all the

Many accounts are given of the ac accident,
cident, accident, but the clearest is V that of
Miss Davis, superintendent at the in industrial
dustrial industrial school. Miss Davis heard the
plane start and went out in front of
the building to see it rise. She saw
it come over the row of trees between
the landing field and the Marion
Farms, in which the school is located,
and noticed with surprise that it was
flying very low. She had barely time
to note this when the plane tipped to
one side and then came straight down.
Utterly dismayed, she put her hands
before her face to shut out the sight.
She heard the crash as the plane
struck-and looking again saw it a
wreck on the ground. J3he saw a man
(Lieut. Feast) run around the plane,
stoop down and try to pull the other
man out. Then fire blazed out and
drove him back. She heard voices as
he and Remington spoke to each
other. Then Feast approached the
machine again but the fire was too
fierce for him to get near Remington.
There were two or three explosions
in rapid succession and the airplane
was a mass f flame. Then Feast
ran across the field toward a cottage
about a -hundred yards away, evident
ly hopingtto find help. During these
few agonized seconds 'he had called
for help several times, but there was
nobody near enough to aid him. At
the cottage, he tried to telephone to
town for a doctor. The phone at the
cottage is on a branch line, and Miss
Davis knowing this, ran to her own
phone to switch him on to the central
station. Many people by this time
were running to help, but there was
nothing they could do. The body of
the young soldier could be seen under

of telephone poles by the road looked
like a tall picket fence. If we was

Before leaving, Lieut. Feast called at
the Star office and asked that noth nothing

the story, and it was partly in type,
we could not refuse the request of
the young officer, who in spite of his

out his duties. s
Lieut. Feast was burned about his
hands and sustained some bruises, but
these injuries he did not seem to no notice.
There are many conflicting stories
about the accident, but the most relia

said. A number of people, none of
whom saw the occurrence, said that
Feast saved himself by jumping, and
the correspondent of the Tampa Tri Tribune

that nobody jumped from -the ma machine

It was also reported that the plane
turned, over and Remington was
caught under the engine. It would
have been better for him if this had
been the case, as the shock would
have killed him instantly. But the
machine did not turn over. Reming
ton was evidently thrown out and
caught in the tangle of one of the
smashed wings. Had half a dozen
strong men been on the spot, they
could hardly have pulled him free be before

There is much speculation about the
cause of the accident. Several have
said a wing of the plane hit a branch
of one of the trees as it tried to pass
over. We have heard that Lieut.
Feast was heard to say to one of the
other officers that the machine did not
have sufficient speed in rising, and
when a short distance above the
ground it ran into a current of air
that 'it did not have the momentum
to overcome, and that caused it to tip
and fall. If this was not the reason,
the public may never know, as the
army keeps its own council.
