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.

The above is one short paragraph
from an interesting sketch of Mr.
Henry M. Flaxler by Editor Frank
Harris of the Ocala Banner, and who
recently enjoyed the rae privilege of
a trip with the subject of his sketch
to view the great work of the Florida
East Coast railway extension to Key
To us this paragraph is the most
interesting, most significant one in
all this most entertaining story, much
of which has to do with Mr. Flagler's
diet, his rest, his recreation, his re-
ligion and his politics.

still on the lever which directs what
has been fittingly described as one of

personally. Its knowledge of him has
been obtained through newspaper ac-
counts and through his activities in
behalf of our beloved Florida. But
had it been asked to name his age
this paper would have said he was 60
years young rather than 80 years old.
When a man by reason of strength
is approaching the four-score mark
there is due him the respect of his
fellows. When his life has been fill-

Heary Wattersa, the veteran editor
of the Lousvllle Courier-Journa,
goes so far as to say that he is the
foremost figure in history.
Viewed from whatever standpoint
Mr. Lincoln was a marvelous man.
Born in the most humble surround-
ing of most humble parentage, by his
inate character he rose to be the rul-
er of the world's greatest nation.
He was reared in a rude country
district He never attended school,
and after reaching years of maturity
he was a rail splitter, yet nursing an
unquenchable ambition, he educated
himself, studied law, was a wonderful-
ly successful jurist, locked horns in
the campaign with Stephen A. Doug-
lass, notably the ablest statesman and
orator of that period, and when the
campaign had ended drew forth from
"the little giant" the exclamation that
Mr. Lincoln was the greatest debater
he had ever met.
Mr. Lincoln conducted the war with
consummate ability, surprising those
who had looked upon his election as
a mere accident, and his tragic death
is now lamented nowhere more sin-
cerely than in the south.
It is universally believed that had
he survived the war the reconstruc-
tion policy would have been avoided
and the cementing of the sections
would have immediately followed the
surrender at Appomattox.
We are glad that the time has come
when persons living in the north can
pay just tribute to the virtues of the
leaders of the south during the war
period, and the people of the south
can also pay just tribute to the north-
ern leaders during the same period.

Gettysburg speech without being con-
vinced of his greatness. Than it
nothing is more eloquent in the
realms of literature.

returned from these trips renewed in
strength and was always glad to dis-
cuss with his friends the things of in-
terest he had seen, the men he had
met. and the business outlook and
prospects of the sections visited.

As has already been announced
Ocala's splendid band, which is win-
ing a state-wide reputation, will go
to Eustis to participate in the Wash-
ington's birthday celebration that is
given annually in that city. The Ocala
band went down last year to play at
the celebration, and so perfectly de-
lighted were the citizens of Eustis
with the playing of our boys that they
were immediately engaged to play
again this year.

on that occasion. The following is

Even our own people hardly realize
what a complete foundry and ma-
chine shop we have in our midst. The
Ocata Iron Works have for the past
year or more been steadily making
improvements in their plant, until it
is now one of the most complete and
up-ro-date in Florida. They have dis-
carded steam as a motive power and
now use electricity throughout the va-
rious departments for driving the ma-
chhinery. A representative of the
Ocala Banner was shown among oth-
er fine foundry products a single cast-
ing weighing nearly four thousand
pounds, and the foundry people say
that this is nothing unusual either.


Mr. Asher Frank, manager of the
Marion Realty Company, has rented

The Methodist Sunday school is in
a flourishing condition, the attend-
ance Sunday being larger than it ever
has been up to date.
The music was lively and inspiring.
To assist in this part of the worship
an orchestra is being organized.
It being the first Sunday in the
month and missionary day, a short
and interesting program was render-
ed at the close of the Sunday school
lesson by the members of Miss Bar-
nett's class of girls. The program as
carried out was as follows:
Missionary chart talk-Alice Bur-
Recitation, "A Millicn a Month in
China"-Ruth Ervine.
Recitation, "A Wonderful Pennv"-
Nan brooks.
Reditation, "Scotch Woman's Mis-
sionary Money"-Helen Park.
Reading, "He Gave a Nickel to the
Lord"-Irma Blake.
Recitation, "Is It Nothing to You"-
Gladys Martin.
Duet and Chorus-Annie Pearl Lid-
don. Irma Blake and class.
This class has recently been organ-
ized and the members are very en-
thusiastic in their Sunday school
work. Their enthusiasm and earnest
efforts were rewarded on the fifth
Sunday in January when they were
the recipients of stars for having ev-
ery member of the class present, this
being 4he first "star class" of the
year. On this Sunday there were
also two new scholars enrolled and
all had a perfect record.
This indeed is a "star class" in ev-
ery respect, and 'the members can be
counted on for service, for their mot-
to is: "Not for ourselves alone, but
also for others."

Mr. Thrower is one of the best

of letters from these grateful women who have been cured

members of the Young Laaies' Card
Club, and seven other of her friends.
The Scott home has been the scene
of many lovely parties and Mrs. Tay-
lor is thoroughly versed in the art of
entertaining her guests well, and the
card club meeting with her Saturday
was gr'at ly enjoyed. The weather
was lovely and the doors and win-
dows were all thrown open, and the
games were quite exciting and closely
contested. The five tables .were ar-
ranged in the reception hall and the
parlor and the progressions were
marked on the loveliest little hand-
painted scores, being tiny little girls
with their faces buried in school
books. They were done by the lost-
ess. as were also the two beautiful
prizes, which were lovely pictures,
done in water colors and very prettily
framed. They were exceedingly ar-

tistic and were won by Miss Meta
Jewett and Miss Sarah McCreery.

"The Story of the Year." told by
Dr. Clark in the Christian Endeavor
Almanac for 19o9p. has the following
beautiful passage: "It has sometimes
been asked whether the sun of Chrie-
tian Endeavor is rising or setting.
and to this question we reply: We
know that it is a rising sun. looLtag
over the records of the year that is
gone we can see no signs of gloom-
ing. The conventions that have bes
held have not been lacking In earnae-
ness or spirituality. A large part of
the work of Christian Endeavor a-
cleties is done quietly. in the nature
of the case, but the service to the
church is none the less efectaal o
that account. We are gaining aw
ideals and see new visions. Wherever
we turn we meet with Christlia O-
deavor activity."
In Canada there are now 36"4 o-
cieties and the work is making head-
way, especially in the wester nprov-
inces. Canadian Endeavorers am

His Bills Are Passed Said Cities
Will be Greatly Benefited
A late Washington speclYeos that
Senator J. P. Taliaferro ofWrida, in
the United States senate has intro-
duced matters as follows:
A bill providing for the improve-
ment, repair, and an addition to the
public building at Pensacola. There
being no objection, the senate, as a
committee of the whole, proceeded to
consider the bill. It directs the sec-
retary of the treasury to cause the
court house, postoffice and custom
house building in the city of Pensa-
cola, state of Florida, to be improved,
repaired and an addition constructed
thereto at a total cost not to exceed
$100.000; and proposes to amend the
act of congress approved March 3,
1S83. providing for the erection of a
public building at Pensacola, Fla., so
as to authorize the secretary of the
treasury, in his discretion, to disre-
gard the provision in the act which
requires an open space of not less
than forty feet on each side of the
building. The bill was reported to
the senate without amendment, or-
dered to be engrossed for a third read-
ing, read the third time, and passed.
Mr. Taliaferro also submitted an
amendment proposing to appropriate
$2,000.oi0, towards the construction
of a dry dock at the navy yard, Pen-
sacola. Fla.. etc., intended to be pro-
posed by him to the naval appropria-
tion bill, which was referred to the
committee on naval affairs and or-
dered to be printed.
He also submitted an amendment
proposing to appropriate $15,000 to
complete the marine railway at the
naval station, Key West, Fla.. etc.,
intended to be proposed by him to the
naval appropriation hill, which was
referred to 'the committee on naval
affairs and ordered printed.
Mr. Taliaferro also introduced a bill

menced business for myself in Ocala at the corner of
Main street and Ocklawaha avenue. As our business

this will continue at all times in the future. My as-
sistants are all of the very best in their line and are
well known to you. They will treat you at al! times
with the utmost cordiality and civility.

Ocaca is everywhere recognized as
one of the most thrifty, enterprising
and beautiful cities in the .uterior of
Florida. It is the capital city of the
banner county of the state-the coun-

credit the banner prize at three sue

separating the rain fall, part of which
flows into the Atlantic ocean on the
one side and part into the Gulf of Mex-

The editor of the Breeders' Gazette
probably the largest and finest, and
certainly the best illustrated and ed-
ited stock and farm paper in the
world, has recently, both personally
and in his paper shown a great inter-
est in Florida. He is building a beau-
tiful home at Woodmar, on Lake
Weir, in Marion county, invested
largely among us, sent down some
fine stock, and through his paper is
attracting great attention to Florida.
I intend to help in a small way to
show our appreciation by doubling his
subscription list in Florida, and am
going to more than take off my pub-
lisher's discounts, and give the Flor-
ida Fruit and Truck Grower one year
free to every man who will at once
send me $2 to pay for a year's sub-
scription to the Chicago Breeders'
Gazette. This splendid weekly and
our own beautifully illustrated maga-
zine, if ordered separately, would
cost $3. Send me $2 and get both for
a full year, and at 'the end of the year
if not satisfied just ask nim to give
you all your money back. That's all.
Addr-ess all orders to me personally.

In the southern seas. out bevy.nd
the coasts of Australia. is tht island
of Tasmania. It is off tthe great high-
ways of commerce, but, contrary to
the understanding of many who sel-
dom get far away fr)m the world's
great centers of popti ::. it is keep-
ing step in the march of progress.
Tasmania, for example, has taken to
the automobile with an avidity equal
to that of other parts of the globe,
and it stands ready for all the other
innovations that the twentieth cen-
tury may have in store.
It was a wool grower, W. Gibson,
of Scone, near Launceston, in Tasma-
nia, who bought the first 18-horse
power touring car of 1907 model that
was sent out from the Franklin fac-
tory, at Syracuse, N. Y. In fact, so
anxious was he to secure the motor
car without delay that a 1907 engine
was fitted into a 1906 body and the
shipment to Tasmania hastened by
this arrangement.
A few days ago a new motor car
was shipped to him from the Frank-
lin factory, one of 28-horse power, he
having decided that in his work about
the wide acreage of his possessions
he needed a larger automobile of 1909
model to replace the 1907 car he had
used for the past two years.

Every day Napoleon B. Broward
grows bigger in the hearts of the peo-
pie. The great changes that were to
be wrought by Gilchrist as soon as he
took his seat have not materialized,
in fact. every move that has been
made has strengthened Broward's
policy and shown that he was on the
right track, notwithstanding the yelp-
ing of a horde of newspapers that he
was ruining the state, but as Gilchrist
steps in the tracks of Broward and
does the self-same things that Brow-
ard (did these little two-by-fours say

Some might say how about our
United States senators, congressmen
or present and past governors? Our
rply is that any man who has.been
honored with either of these three
high offces has been far more hon-
ored than he will ever be able to hon-
or the state. We know of but .four
men, living, who have honored their
respective countries more than their
country has honored them, and they
are Thomas A. Edison, Wm. J. Bryan
and Henry Watterson of America,
and Tolstol of Russia.
We Americans are prone to meas-
ure greatness by the dollar mark. It
is a sad error that will lead the future
generation into corruption. A man's
greatness should be measured by the
amount of good he accomplishes for
this and future generations, and we
should learn to honor and reward our
developers in proportion to their ac-
complishments. regardless of their
wealth or their poverty. The boy

Now we are engaged in a great civil
war. testing whether that nation, or
any nation so conceived and so ;edi-
cated. can long endure._We are met
on a great battlefield of tnat war. We
have come to dedicate a portion of
that field as a final resting place for
those who here gave their lives that
that nation might live. It is altogeth-
er fitting and proper that we should
do this.
But in a larger sense, we cannot
dedicate-we cannot consecrate, we
cannot hallow this ground. The brave
men. living and dead who struggled
here have consecrated it far above
our power to add or detract. The
world will little note, nor long re-
member, what we say here, but it
can never forget what they did here.
It is for us the living, rather, to be
dedicated here to the unfinished work
which they who fought here have thus
far so nobly advanced. It is rather
for us to be here dedicated to the
great task remaining before us-that
from these honored dead we take in-
creased devotion to that cause for
which they gave the last full meas-
ure of devotion-that we here highly
resolve that these dead shall not have
died in vain-that this nation, under
God, shall have a new birth of free-
dom-and that government of the
people, by the people, and for the peo-
ple. shall not perish from the earth.-

The editor of the Breeders' Gazette.

atracting great attention to Florida.

Pete is a brother of Lady Aulley. as
she was Miss Teresa Button before
her marriage. They have another
brother living at Fort Gates, on the
St. Johns river, and Pete became so
grieved that he mounted "Ted." the
family horse, yesterday morning and
rode over to Fort Gates, via the Ma-

Button, like his brother. Pete, and
all Los Kiss, was in deep mourning,
for he had received no news from his

As a winter girl Miss Marion is al-
ways very sweet and girlish. Her win-
ter robes of Spanish moss look very
bewitching over her newly made
spring frock. Her bonnet of "over-
land" blue and silver strands looks
stunning over the thousands of locks
of old-gold tresses: her face is a
wreath of smiles and plum and or-
ange blossoms, and she entertains
often, and often, too, she is entertain-

fed Lady Florida stands erect! 0, no-

Georgia and Alabama and, with her
troublesome aides, the big, blue At-
lantic ocean on the east and the chop-
py Gulf of Mexico on the west, wards
off the fearful blizzards. Her old gold
tresses flash about us, her right arm
extends to Key West, where the tips
of her fingers rest. bejeweled tips of
loveliness, and her left arm extends
down the East Coast, 'the coast that
Flagler and Florida built, then dou-
bles back and her hand rests caress-
ingly over lovely Los Kiss in Marion.
And with her (Lady Florida) magic
influence over the elements she keeps
the mercury almost all winter in the
70's and gO's. And the Florida moon
cones out nights. accompanied by the
stars, all except 'that new planet, and
nowhere else shines so bright. And
by day Old Sol is always happy and
sends his sparklets of sunshine every-
where through the tall pines and
palms and bushy orange boughs and
over the rippling waters glimmering.
The Just l's Girls Club rules in the
courts of Los Kiss. and when a fine
is placed on a wrong-doer a month's
vacation from the state of Florida is
likened unto the fine.
There is no mayor in Los Kiss. The
.Iust I's Girls Club rules this place
and ruleQ it well.
Neither the Los Kissan nor the
Evening Gretchen have in their col-
umns a "lost" or "found" notice. The
reason is that one can even see : pin
lying on our clean streets, and noth-
ing ever gets lost here.
We are not idle down here in this
beauty spot. This city is built in the
hammocks, but these hammocks are
not quite as thick as those around
Ocala: however, in a few years the
many extra trees, oak, palm, orange,
etc.. that were planted several years
ago, will change the highways ap-
proaching considerably.
Many inquiries have been received
lately of the whereabouts of the new-
ly married couple, Mr. and Lady Aul-
ly, who left here immediately after
their marriage in November last. A
wireless to the Los Kissan some time
in January reported the couple in
Key West, on board the yacht Lenore,
the little yacht they left here in. Lov-
ers will quarrel, you know; and so
will married people, too. Do you real-
ly think they have had their first
quarrel? Well, we do not think so; we
do not think that anyone would ever
quarrel over in Key West-sun-kiss-
ed. ocean-laved. crab-fed, independent
Key West. Maybe 'they were drowned
in the recent gale that swept over the
Floridla coast; but we sincerly trust
that such is not the case.
Every morning at seven o'clock
"Big Hamp" is tolled, and every even-
ing at nine the Curfew whistle gives
two extra little toots, and every even
ing at eleven the flags on the Los

in Key West, and while there a very
prominent native couple were wed-
ded. This couple, (we will not give
any names, for fear the paper down
there, the Citizen, will learn of the
event, and write it up under big head-
lines) were married on February 4th.
They were to sail on ship north the
next day, but did not catch, treir ship.
So we decided to take them to Wash-
ingtor on board the Lenore. But
first we visited Tampa, and we saw
Mr. Bryan, and Colonel Bittinger of
the Ocala Star, and lots of other peo-
ple we knew and didn't know. We
then swung bact and rounded the
cape and glided through the straits.
We ran into the Bay of Biscayne for
a day's visit to Miami on the way
north. The Miami Metropolis failed to
report us, and we were glad. Off
Palm Beach we swung far out lest
the Palm Beach News catch us. Off
Mayport we swung still further awnay

Necessary Montreal Woman
Writes oCure Seven Years Ago.

"I have been treated by doctor for

but failed to cure it.
My doctor had ad-
vised me to have m
l lgy e cut off but I
Ssa dI would try the
SCuticur Remedies
first. He said, Try
them if you like, but
SI do not think they
will do any good.
At this timemy
leg was peeled from the knee, my foot
was like a piece f raw flesh, and I had
to walk on crutches. I bought a cake
of Cuticura Soap, a box of Cuticura
Ointment, and a bottle of Cuticura
Pill. After the first two treatments
the swelling went down, and in two
months my leg was cured and the new
skin came on. The doctor could not
believe his own eyes when he saw that
Cuticura had cured me and said that
he would use it for his own patients
I used two cakes of Cuticura Soap,
three boxes of Ointment, and five bot-
ties of Resolvent, and I have now been
cured over seven years, and but for
the Cuticura Remedies I might have
lost my life. I have lots of grand-
children, and they are frequent users
of Cuticura, and I always recommend
it to the many people whom my busi-
ness brings to my house every day.

eye, and upon inquiry a reporter of
this paper learned that he had caught
the Taft-taste for 'possum and while

bravely assunmd the Taft smile.

their high esteem.
Mrs. L. T. Izlar and Mrs. Frank

the state contractors $325 per beat
for able convicts, and take care of the
Infirm. It seems to me that $325 per
head per year is unreasonably high
and is an injustice to the state, the
convict and the lessee. I believe the
state should allow no speculation it
tnis matter. It should take care of its
infirm and aged convicts on some farn
and lease the able-bodied convicts al
such a figure that the workers of the
convicts could make a profit on their
labor in their business without too
severely tasking the convicts. I'll
try to know more about the convict
system before I get to Tallahassee
and would like some suggestions
from Dr. S. H. Blitch or others.
Good Bye
I have in my simple and crude way
tried to tell the people in the county
what are my views on public affairs,
so that if I was in the wrong I could
be righted, so that I might make as
few mistakes as possible, and serve
the people the best I know how, and
now I close. Good bye.

Mr. Galloway says that when he
was sheriff of Lake county he discov-
ered a grave in a hammock quite a
distance from Leesburg, and on dig-
ging into it found the body of a man
who had been missing about six
months. The identification of the
body led to the arrest of one of his
neighbors, who was tried for murder
,and was given a life term sentence
in the state penitentiary.

the scent was no more unlike 'possum

We regret that the prejudice exists

We are honest about it-'scuse us

Perry is such a new town hllat it is
hardly known outside 01 i:s own con-i

it now has about :;:i,)i population andl
is s:ill growing. It ha<- ftul railroals

ing and departing daily: the tin-st
court house in l iddl'e Plorila onej
of the finest school b:li!dings in the
state and any number of handsome
brick and stone business blocks. and
enterprising busin e ss firms. We re-
gret that the advertising columns of
the Herald (do not make a Ibtter
showing of the town than they do. It
is not our fault that with over fifty
business concerns less ;han a dozen
are repr sentoned. Many of the busi-
ness men evidently do not realize the
value of printer's ink. notwithstand-
ing the fact that a large majority of
the most successful business men of
the age paved their way to fame and
fortune through it. We have not de-
spaired, however. They are bound to
accept the world-wide fact that ad-

The New York World of Sunday
contained at: article by Waldemar
Wurts, giving testimony that seems
to show that the letter "J" in one's
name spells success. The writer ad-
vises that if you wish your son to
succeed, financially, at any rate, see
to it that the letter "J" appears in
the name you tag him with. Giving
instances of where the letter "J" can
be found in the names of the rich, the'
list starts off, of course, with John D.
Rockefeller, whose wealth is estimat-
ed at $500,000,000. He is a success,
financially. Then comes J. Piermont
Morgan. America's greatest banker.
He is said to possess about $100.000.-
000. Then James Stillman, Jacob
Schiff, James J. Hill. George J. Gould;
and, don't forget Jay Gould, James
Speyer, John W. Gates, James R.
Keene, John Jacob Astor. There are,
of course, a large number of financial
and railroad men all over the United
States whose names contain the let-
ter "J." but the above cite more es-
pecially New York men. Henry M.
Flagler, although the rule does not
apply to his name, has surrounded
himself with men in the operation of
the Florida East Coast Railway Com-
pany and Hotel Company whose
names contain the letter "J." There
is .I. R. Parrott. vice president and
general manager: J. E. Ingraham and
J. P. Beckwith, vice presidents: J. D.
Rahner. general passenger agent: .J.
A. McGuire and .1. A. McDonald, con-
tractors for the Hotel Company. and

hotel. It does seem. then, that the
letter '.1" is a lucky one. but it is per-
haps because the letter has been tin-

if a boy were given a name with .1 "J"

would die in a poor b use.-.-Mianit

Thle Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbottl. :ditior
of the Ontlook. was one of the speak-
ers a th annual dlinner of the Anm-
herst college alumni in Boston last
He is reported, among other topics
discussed, to have dwelt especially on
what he regarded as the tendency of
the American newspapers to exceed
the limits of proper "freedom of
speech." To illustrate his thoughT he
gave utterance to the following:
"If I walk down the streets with my
hands in my pockets it is no one's
business. If I walk down the streets
and put my hands in some one else's
pockets, he has a right to kick. The
liberty of the press is no different
from any other kind. A man may
write what he wishes about himself,
but when he pulls down another
man's character he is no less then an

kens libel to assassination. But our

Considerable speculation has been
indulged in throughout the city based
on the idea that Mr. Bryan was paid
a large sum of money by the State
Fair Association to come to Tampa
and deliver his several adldresses
here. The fact is that Mr. Bry%': re-
ceived cijy his expenses from Lin-
coln to Tampa trom the Fair Associa-
tion, and no other remuneration what-
soever. The Fair Association offered
to pay Mr. Bryan's expenses for the
return trip home, but he refused to
accept this, stating that he had sev-
eral lecture dates to fill on his way
home, and did not think it right .o ac-
cept return expenses for this reason.
This statement is made to correct the
erroneous impression that Mr. Bryan
charged the Fair Association a fee for
his visit and speeches. He accepts
compensation only for his lectures,
and not for public appearances, such
as accompanied his coming to Tampa.

One day last week J. M. Alvarez
was riding horseback on the Lake
Butler road near the fence at his
country place, about three miles west
of Starke. His horse shied suddenly,
and looking for the cause Mr. Alvarez
saw a large wildcat trying to get
through the fence, which is of wire
netting. He was preparing to dis-
mount and kill the animal, when it
began to run along the ditch by the
road and the rider gave chase. The
fence is very long. and the cat, hotly
pursued, again tried to crawl through
it. Finding its efforts futile, it re-
sumed its flight along the ditch,
closely followed by Mr. Alvarez, but
finding its pursuer too fleet, after
reaching the end of the fence sprang
up a pine tree Mr. Alvarez waited
under the tree till Thomas Crawford
came riding by and asked him to
watch the animal until he could get
his gun. He went to his tenant house
and soon returned with a shotgun and
his calship was dlispatched. his skin

We need this movement in our
state just as much as do those in
any other portion of the Union, so let
us be at work, praying as we go, that
this may be a dedication for all fu-
