The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

We believe it to be the prettiest spot

Flagler has made no mistake in build-

Ponce de Leon. When we state that
it has nine dining rooms and the main
one is capable of seating comfortably
a thousand guests some idea may be
formed of its grandeur. The appoint-

in taste, comfort, and splendor, we
fain believe, rivals the palace of the
Cesars. Situated on an eminence be-
tween the highly phosphorescent wa-
ters of Lake Worth and the solemn
roar of the ocean, with its many hun-

a vision of beauty in enchanted land.
Lake Worth is tWenty-eight miles in
length and the strip of land between
t and the ocean 'makes some preten-
sions to altitude, the soil is rich and
the growth is intensely tropical. Mr.
Flagler thinks the climate the most
even and delightful to be found on the

winter homes there and are convert-
ng it into such a veritable fairy land
that the genii, the nymphs and Ihbe

If "sound money" Republicans re-

profitable but was interrupted by the
war and after the war its cultivation
fell into "inoccuous desuetude."
Straggling patches however continued
to be kept up and its ante-bellum his-
tory coming to the knowledge of Col.
Duval, of the F. C. & P., he instructed
his agents to buy several boxes of the
best samples and had them shipped to
New York and there distributed among
the largest manufacturers and made
up into cigars. The superior quality
of the leaf attracted their attention
and after several interviews with Col.
Duval eventually visited Quincy with
a view to purchasing lands and grow-
ing tobacco, all of which has ,auee
been done' and has given new life
and activity to the old town and.to0-
day no county in the state is so pos-
perous as old Gadsden. The Owl' Cl-
gar company alone own twentyefive
thousand acres twelve hundred of-
which is planted to tobacco, and for
the past several years the sales have
been more than satisfactory. The
lands are under splendid fence and
are cultivated with scrupulousuears
and are more than mself-sustaining, s
what is realized from the sales of the
tobacco is clear profit. The house, io
the managers and workmen are neat
comfortable and attractive; the stable
and barns are built on the most im
proved pattern and are kept freshly
painted. On every five acre tract is a
I"curing house," and no similar num-
ber of acres in Virginia, or Pennsyl-
.vania are more judiciously cultivated
or presents to the eye a more delight

Of course this has stimulated the
culture of tobacco and many of the

the construction of his road on down
the peninsula and over the coral reefs
to Key West. This will require daring
and skillful engineering, but is pro-
nounced practical and while it will re-
quire the expenditure of fabulous sums
of money, it will link Mr. Flagler's
name with an enterprise the memory
'of which at least will endure as long
as the world shall last. It is no idle
dream, but a laudable ambition, and
will be one of the early accomplish-
ments of the next century. It will be
a monument to his memory grander
than any king of earth can boast, and
we hope that heaven will deal more
kindly with him than fell to the lot of
Moses and that he will live to see the
full fruition and completion obf the
stupendous undertaking.
While Mr. Flagler is building his
world-eclipsinghotels and many miles
of railroad, the people of smaller
means are by no means idle and are
adding their full share to the glory of
the state's development. They are re-

inequalities that are now s., vlainug and will give to every
man in some Jtust and *:iuitahle way some share in the
bounties and opportunities of nature," recognizing the fact
that God gave the world in uSifruet to al! the living, and
while hb gavP man domini,,u over the beasts-of the-field;
the fowls of the air, and tile fi1eies of the sea, he did Dot
give man dominion over man; hen:e every man ha. a

That so many men to-dav. like Christ when he assum-

should have access to The fruitful womb of nature and the
many be deprived of it. I believe that laws can be made
that will correct these abu-les and inequalities so~as to make

In corJbination. proportion and
proce-. Hood's .'.'ar-aparilla is peculiar
to itself, and unequalled in true merit..
No other medicine ever possessed so
much curative power,; or reached such
enormous sales, or made such won-
derful cures, as Hood's Sarsaparilla.
It is -undoubtedly thec-best medicine
ever made to purify, vitalize and en-'
rich the blood.
That is the secret of its success.
Read this statement:
When my son was 7 years of age, he
had rheumatic fever and acute rheuma-
tism, which settled in his left hip. He
was so sick that no one thought there we Wkn"
any help for him. Five sores broke out
on his thigh, which the doctor said were

sores. We had three different doctors.
Pieces of bone came out of the sores. The
last doctor said the leg would have to be
cut open and the bone; scraped, before he
could get well. Howard became so low
that he would eat nothing, and one doc-
tor said there was no chance for him.
"One day, a newspaper recommending
Hood's Sarsaparilla was left at our door.
We decided to try this medicine. Howard
commenced taking it the last of February,
after having been sick for a year and aw

half. He hadn't taken it a week before I
saw that his appetite began to improve,
and then.he gained rapidly. I gave him
five bottles, when the sores were all healed
and they never broke out again. The
crutches he had used for tour ,years were
laid aside, as he had no further use for
them. I give all the credit to Hood's Sar-
saparilla." MRS. ADA L. MOODY, Fay

.A your attention to the almost blank page set opposite t.
ns uame of your.state in all the encyclopedies, and would
h heaven that I could inspire you to resolve to-night to fi
that page with names that will shed upon it effulgent an
is imperishable glory. Do something. Bestir ourselves
Let me beseech you to more than resolve to put yonr sta
it on an intellectual plane with other states.
d Prior to the eventful moments leading up to the cot
r- flicr of arms between the states, and the period of recon
re struction following it-as momentous as has ever agit
d ted a nation-no great discussion in any of the magazine
?f no article contributed to any of the newspapers; no great
k oration delivered on the stump; in public assemblies o
e conventions, will live in history as Florida's contribution
it to the literature of that exciting period.
e Now for the other example, I promised: We are tol
bby Macaulay that nothing in the early existence of Britai
n indicated the igrvatn 3, inhabitants, lhen iulthy first" became known to the Tyria
mariners, were little superior to the natives of the Sand
r which Islands. She was quougaltd by the Roman arm
but received only a faint tincture of Roman arts and le
s ters. Of the western provinces which obeyed the Caesar
t she was the last that was'conquered and the first that wa
e flung away. England, without Scotland, Ireland an
" Wales, is smaller in seacoast and area than Florida, ye
; her achievements both on land and sea are so great as t
almost stagger the-imagination and fatigue the mind i
" their contemplation. The product of her looms and forge
r reach the remotest bounds of the earth; her sails, bearin
f her products, whitens every sea, and the sun does not se
r on her possessions-the proud prowess of 'her arms. Stri
from our literature the grandeur and beauty England ha
thrown around it and it would almost be like a barren
waste. To what high degree of embellishment it beam
possible under the inspiration of pens like Shakespeare's
Milton's, Dryden's, Pope's, Southey's, Byron's, Goldsmith'
and Tennyson's; rob the profession of law of the writing
of Blackstone, Bacon, Coke and Bentham; take from th
pulpit Jeremy Taylor, Thomas a' Becket, Bunyon,- Wes
ey, Whitefield and Spurgeon ; from the realms of fiction
Fielding, Smollett, Thackeray and Dickens; from the do

In Florida was founded the first settlement of the new
world. In 15.13 Ponce deLeon landed and began the build-
ing of St. Augustine. That has been 383 years ago-nearly
'four full centuries. If a tidal wave to-night should sweep
over the state and submerge it beneath the waters of the
sea, what would be its contribution to the history and pro-
gress of the world in all or any of the departments of hu-
man effort? -What would we'leave behind us to tell the
world we ever had an existence? Where onr historians;
where are our poets; where are our novelist,; where are
great pulpit divines; where 'are our Horace Greeley's and
Henry Grady's in journalism; where are our great sol-
diers; where are our great philosophers ; where are states-
men; where are our jurists; where are our political econ-
omistc,; where are our inventors; where are our scientific
'investigators; where are our composers; where are our mu-
sicians; where are our orators; w h ere are our pain ters, and
sculptors and architects; where are the names of great men
and great women who have registered their names high on
the scroll of fame? Echo answers, where?
Of course we remember uirh gratitude and appreciate
the services of Richard K. Call and his compatriots wh6
participated in the early Indian wars; Parkhill and his
brave followers at a later date; and Finnegan, and FEnrey,
and Bullock, and Perry, and Dinkison aud Keenan, and
others, whose valiant services lent lustre to southern arms
in the war between the states, but none of these names
will godown in historyas Napoleonic masters in the science
of war.: Though my friend, Capt. Bill Kendrick, known
inu my section,of the state as the "original Florida cracker,"
who *as a playmate and friend of the great Indian chief-
tain. !ufornm.3 mae ih ct Osceola exhibited srategy and skill in
the disposition of war- that would have done honor to the
great Captain of France!

The busiest and most useful men
are not always exempt from sickness.
Especially are they liable to be at-
tacked and completely disabled by I hat
most annoying and painful ailnent-
Rheumatism. Men in all walks of life
are subject at any time to be seized
with this disease, and besides the great
bodily pain, there is almost unbearable
mental anguish at the thought of hav-
ing one's strength and vigor gradually
supplanted by a condition of utter
helplessness. Under the effects of-
Rheumatism, the strongest men be-
come the weakest, and the most useful
are-robbed of their usefulness.
One of the busiest of Atlanta's citi-
zens is Mr. J. A.LeSeur,tlie well-known
architect and builder, whose office is in
thle Inman building. He has lived
in Atlanta for" years, and some of the
prettiest residences and most substan-
tial business .blocks of the city are
monuments to his skill as an architect
and builder. For'years he held the
responsible position of city building in-
spector, and is also high in Masonic
circles, being now recorder of the Ma-
sonic Council in this city.

"For five years, I suffered untold misery
from muscular rheumatism. I tried every
known remedy, consulted the best physi-
cians, visited Hot Springs, Ark.,three times,
spending 81000 there, besides doctors' bills;
but could obtain only temporary relief. My
flesh was wasted away so that I weighed
only ninety-three pounds; myleft arm and
leg were drawn out of shape, the muscles

being twisted up in knots. I was Imable to
dress myself, except with assistance, and
could nly hobble about by using a cane. I
had no appetite, and was assured, by the
doctors, that I could not live. The pains, at
times, .were so awful, that I could procure

anal.yis and give $25 to aiy religious
insRtattiomn in Interlachen.
If, afttr the most rigid investigation,
the statenuents of the many farmers in
ml1 parts of the country, who have
written in praise of it, are not found
to be as reliable as any Mr. Hastings
ean make, I will give $25as above. Or,
if Icannot produce the written indorse-
ments of many more than half a dozen
of the most prominent orange growers
in the State, I will give the same
amount to the same cause, provided,
of course, that if I prove my assertions
Mr. Hastings is to give the above
amount to some religious institution
of Ocala.
Now as to proof of its availability,
not chemically, but actually. If the
Times-Union will make the test of
soft phosphate vs. acid phosphate in
germinating seeds, and the soft phos-
phate does not germinate more seed
than the acid phosphate, I will give
$100 to any hospital of Jacksonville,
with the understanding that if I prove
my claims, Mr. Hastings is t') pay the"
same amount to that institution.
Mr. Hastings gives a little anecdote
as follows : "My experience was that
of an Interlaehen orange grower given
to a solicitor, who said 'I do not want
any more soft phosphate.' I will say
this for jit, I do not think it hurt my
grove any." No man who ever in-
vested in Interlachen sand can say as
much about his pocket book and
feelings. A. H. AGNEW.

Mr. Agnew, is the manager of the
soft phosphate mines and works at
Harlowe, Marion county, from which
thousands of tons of soft phosphate has-
been sent to Virginia, Maryland and
Pennsylvania, with satisfactory re-

We refer to factories. There is not a
sane man in Ocala who does not be-
lieve that factories, no matter how
small or few men they wou'd employ,
but would be a positive benefit to the
town. This conceded, why not have
them. Lack of capital seems the
trouble. Every proposition of this
kind ne,-'s ui!th apparent .,ii .1
and ev(er3 tllni, is glowiug until- noses-
are counltd ffor the cash capital to pay,
for the necessary stock and then comes,
confusion and failure. Let us remedy
this state of affairs by forming a stock
company with not less than two hund-
red shares, paid up value of fifty dol-
lars. A dollar payable each month on
each share, with monothty investment
of such money paid in until we have
made two or three years payment,
when Ocala will have capital to em-
bark and take advantage of manufac-
turing-interest, which are certain to
assist the growth and development
V-oXOcija. This plan has been adopted
in many towns in tne south during
th'Ipast ten years and not a failure
has come to them.
She Came at Last.
Mr. Carl Elsehner, Ocala's chemist,
has after patient waiting and many

hearts, gladness in the light of their
soft blue eyes and joyousness in their
youhgsouls, the Banner reporter did

But like many other busy men, Mr.
LeSeur was overtaken by Rheumatism
and soon his strength gave way to a
condition of helplessness. This dread
disease produces more agony, he says,
than can well be described. "For
years I have suffered with Sciatic
Rheumatism and often felt as if a
small piece of my spine had been
taken out, also as if a fragment of
bombshell had passed through my left
hip. When I would sit down, I could
not straighten up for several minutes,
and then only at the expense of great
pain. I could get absolutely no relief,
though many remedies were tried.
Someone recommended S. S. S. and I
was almost in despair when I began its
use. In three days, however, I was .
so greatly relieved that I felt very
little inconvenience from the rheuma-
tism. The digase grew less painful
as I continued the S. S. S., and very
soon disappeared entirely. S. S. S.
also proved to .be a fine tonic, as I now
have more appetite, and feel better
than ever before, in my life. I cannot
say too much in praise of S. S. S."
Rheumatism is a condition of the
blood which has always baffled the
doctors, and it is a peculiarity that
those who once have it are mure m al.
ways be subject to its attelm.rom
time to time. The reason 9. "h i
that the doctors are only ablPgi6
temporary relief, but xcing* v4 the.
system of the dipla'e perwalse .
S. S.oS. is guarotteed -

and is the only rea ff remedy for
real blood troubles, such as Rheuma-
tism, Scrofula, Cancer, Eczema,
Catarrh, Tetter, Contagious Blood
Poison, etc. When S. S. S. once
forces a disease from the system it
never returns. Our valuable books

The Silver Victory in Alabama.
The &bt~lughatim tate-HeraM, in
commenting upon the glorius victory
of Hon. J. F. Johnston, the free silver
candidate for governor of Alabama,
very prettily remarks :
The rehabilitation and restoration of
the democratic party in Alabama to
its former prestige and invincible
power should be the purpose of all the
true white men in the State, for when
the principles of democracy cease to
control the politics of the State, then
the prosperity, peace and happiness of
its people are doomed. We need to
hold fast to those who have remained
steadfast through the heat and burden
of the years, and reclaim the wayward
ones who have strayed along devious
paths into strange and improper fel-
lowship. Bending at least a portion of
earnest attention and honest effort in
this direction, a marvelous revival and
outpouring of the spirit of democracy
will result in Alabama, and in August
the gonfalons of a reunited and trium-
phant party will kisi the breezes of
Alabama from Georgia to Mississippi,
from Tennessee to the Gulf of Mexico
and the Land of Flowers.
Summerfield Dots.
Mr. A. S. Douglass, a prominent
attorney of Winsboro, S. C., has been
visiting his son, J. B. Douglass, whom
he defended and cleared at the United
States court, for getting lumber on
government land.
Summerfield will have a large
average in-melon.q.
Squire Newson is not as well as his
friends could wish, but hope for a
speedy recovery.

Of the Merchants's National Bank
Burglar and Fire Proof.
Its Recessity Apparent and Its Use
The Imuprovemeunt that have been
going on in the Merchant's National
bank for several months past have
been noti-iale toi all pas-.r:, by.' They
have consisted in placing in position
in the south east corner of the bank-
ingroom, a monster Hall's safe, fire
and burglar proof deposit vault, with
time locks and all the latest improve-
ments of that up-to-date manufactur-
ing company. During the week the
interior fixings and furniture consist-
ing of neat and durable Japanned
steeol box, and shelvings have been
added t,. replace the wooden ones and
no Ilun>:ial institution in Florida has
a more cmnullete, durable and secure
vault lmun Ihe Merchant's National
Bank of Ocala. To go into all the
miner details of this wonderfully fash-
ioued and superbly constructed safety
vault would take a small volume and
as the object of this article is to note
the improvements, its utility and
safety to the general public, we. can
take but a eu~rsory glance at this in-
pregnable fn.ilit-_- ,uilt to hold in
abs-olute .:af-lfy the valuable papers,
Iondsanrd jewels of those who may

danger their Ioi .iion by ]aivilg
them stored at hinie or in a safe-that
any expert ",afe cracker" can invade
i a d dt lrnil.
To give a faint idea of the solidity
and strength of the vault walls we
need but mention the fact that they
rest on, a five foot solid stone and
cement foundation and consists of
three plat- of hfOnji.- and one of Bes-
semer steel, heavily encased with fire
bricks and ihe weight of the metal
which compose itsdoois and frames
is over thirteen tons. The locks' are
automatic and wihn set will open by
tle operation of it. intricate but per-
-feet mechaniism. They are marvels'
of beauty and ingenuity. A glance
at the v ulIt will convince the most
skeptical that it is all its makers claim -
for it-perfectly fireand burglar proof.
-- The vault proper is spacious and the
east side contains a tier of Japanned
steel boxeT, numbering 136,aranging in
S size fromEta half peek to a bushel meas-
ure. If the growth of the business
continues another tier of equal capac-
ity can be placed in the west side of
Svault. They can be rented according
to size, from $5, $10 to $15 a year.
Eacl. renter has a key and with 'a
number corr-.ponding to the number
on his box, so there is no possibility
of any one else invading his premises.
Wheu a renter steps inside the vault
a grated door closes aulomativally be-
hind him and locks. In the vault is a
table and chair, at which he can seat
himself, look over his valuables or
Eonagtjjaiportatnt Ipnipers and no one

-" -Wecould fill colums of interesting
detail connected with this mam-
mouth vault and its belongings, but as
we remarkedl in starting this article
our object was to let the many thous-.
and readers of the Bahner ~now
where they could secure an absolute
place of safety for their deeds, mort-
gages, bonds, securities, valuables in
the shape of money, jewelry, dia-
monds, table silverware, or souveniers
and at a cost which amounts to less
than a centrand a half a day for the
smaller boxes. -
Seven years ago when the Merchants
National bank was organized such an
'8 accessory as the present safety vault,
which cost $6,000, was deemed super-
fluous, and only thought to belong to
large cities and centers of trade and
wealth, but the necessity of it in Oca]a
and to the people of Marion county is
already appa-ent, and a straw show-
ing the b)uiness acumen of the presi-
dent of the bank, R. B. McConnell, of
-itlyeed when we say that over half
-~-bhe boxes in the vault are already ten-
anted and new applicants are coming
in weekly. The vault is an object of
interest and those who may wish to
give a personal inspection of same are

welcome callers, if -they will only
make known their wishes to. any of
S the urbane and obliging officials of
the Merchant's National Bank, m which
has become not-only a necessity to our
Community but by ils conservative
and able and successful management,
has won the confidence of our people.
