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.

It is with sincere regret that this
paper announces the death of Mr. Wil-
liam McAteer, which occurred at his
I residence a few miles south of Ocala
Saturday morning, after an illness of
several weeks.
For more than fifty years he has liv-
ed on the farm on which he died, and
during that long period of time he has
lived a life that can well be held in
precious memory by his family. He
has never had a misunderstanding
with a neighbor, his name has never
appeared in the court records, and he
has, indeed, been a law-abiding and
law-respecting citizen.
On his modest farm he and his wife
lived happily and devotedly, and rear-
ed a family of eight children, who
were a consolation to them in their
old age, and lightened the way for
them as they began to descend to the
foot of the hill, which was first reach-
ed by the devoted wife a few ycars
ago, and since which time the aged
husband largely lost his grip on ma-
terial things and centered his
thoughts on the time when there
would come a spiritual re-union in that
city not made with hands eternal in
the heavens.
Mr. McAteer was a civil war veter-
an. His name will be found in the
roster of 'he company which we I rint
today. His c,,mraies say that he did
his l'\-v as a shl0:,r, and there is no
higher praise than that. He was' a
member oif the Marion Camp, and at-
tended its sessions when his health
11 was a member of the Methodist
'l',rch and we suppose his name has
h-, :n on the books of the church here
longer and more continuously than
th;:t 1t" any other member.
The reirains of Mr. William McA- were buried from the Methodist
church last Sunday morning at 10:30
o'clock. Rev. R. H. Barnett preached
the funeral sermon and spoke very
touchingly of his many virtues. The
funeral services were quite largely at-

After the collection was take up
Deacon John L. Edwards made the
church announcements, and in doing
so took occasion to introduce the new
preacher, and said that he hoped that
his work in Ocala would not only re-
dound to the good of the Baptist
church but to the city at large, and
that the members of the church would
show their appreciation by having ev-
ery pew occupied however hot or dis-
agreeable the weather might become.
Mr. Gabbey took for his theme "The
Indwelling of Christ." His text was
the seventeenth verse of Paul's Third
Letter to the Ephesians, which reads
as follows: "That Christ may dwell in
your hearts by faith."
He began his sermon by telling of
the holy trinity and said that the of-
fice of Christ was to dwell in human
hearts, and through his death we have
the holy comforter. That the gift of
Christ was God's choicest blessing
upon the world, and that it is through
him we have eternal life.
He said that Christ was a real per-
sonage and still abided with us
through the Holy Spirit. Phillip
Brooks once told an anxious inquirer
that Christ was as real as the streets
we trod and the persons who trod
them. When some visitor asked the
poet, Tennyson, what he thought of
Christ, the great poet plucked a flow-
er and said that Christ was to him
what the sun was to that flower. The
sun was the very life of the flower
and Christ is the spiritual life of the

Christ was given to the world be-
cause of God's infinite love for it, and
love is the great cardinal idea run-
ning through the holy scriptures, and
if we have Christ love will follow as
a natural sequence. He said that if
we have the love of God in our hearts
we can have nothing else, as two
things cannot occupy the same space
at the same time. Moody once pick-
ed up a tumbler and asked how would
you proceed to empty it of the air
that filled it, and poured it full of wa-
ter and said that was the easiest and
most satisfactory way-so if you
would fill your hearts with the love of
God it would root out everything else
and there would be no room for sin
to find a lodging place.
A Kentucky judge said that the
world is growing worse because the
people are losing their consciousness
of God. If his text were followed the
world would come very close to God.

A note to White Rose asks: "Will you kindly inform us
through the Banner what is your version of the following dis-
couraging poem?"


Master of human destinies am I!
Fame, love and fortune on my footsteps wait.
Cities and fields I walk; I penetrate
Deserts and seas remote, and passing by
Hovel and mart and palace, soon or late,
I knock unbidden once at every gate!
If sleeping, wake! If feasting, rise before
I turn away; -it is the hour of fate,
And they who follow me reach every state
Mortals desire, and conquer every foe,
Save death; but those who doubt or hesitate,
Condemned to failure, penury, woe,
Seek me in vain and uselessly implore,
I answer not, and I return no more.

Mrs. W. H. Dodge has returned
home after an absence of a couple of
months. Mrs. Dodge first went to
Live Oak for a week, and from there
went to Davidson, N. C., where she re-
mained until her sons, Messrs. Wither-
spoon and Dick Dodge, were graduat-
ed. She then attended the Confeder-
ate re-union at Memphis, Tenn., after
which shc visited her sister at Cam-
den. S. C. En route home Mrs.
Dodge stopped in Jacksonville sever-
al days with her sons there, and alto-
gether her trip has been a most de-
lightful one.

Mr and Mrs. William H. Wilson
have been spending the past few days
at Seattle, Wash., and write home that
the exposition is splendid. After
spending, a day at Portland, a day at
Los Angeles and a day at San IF'ran-
cisco they will return to Florida,
reaching Ocala next week. They will
visit Mrs. Wilson's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. George W. Martin, in this city
for several days before going on to
their home at Tampa. They will go
at once to housekeeping when they
reach that city.

Beginning Monday, the "Deck Da-
vis" special started on its in!'ial
trip. The special consists of a
trip. This special will consist of a
passenger car attached to the freight
train from Leesburg to Ocala in the
mornings and will return every after-
noon, giving those who have families
at the lake the opportunity to be with
them every night and at their places
of business the next morning.. !t is
a nice arrangement and the railroad
management is to be given especial

They 47, me wrong who say I came no more
VI n once I knock and fail to find you in!
For c ery day I stand outside your door.
A-. I bid you wake, and rise, to fight and win.
\Vail not for precious chances passed away,
Weep not for golden ages on the wane!
Each night I burn the records of the day-
At sunrise every soul is born again'!
Dost thou beh.ld thy lost youth all aghast?
Dost reel from righteous retribution's blow?
Then turn from blotted archives of the past,
And find -the future's pages white as snow.
Art tju a mourner? 'Rouse, th-ee, from thy spell;
Art thou a sinner? Sins may be forgiven;
Each morning gives thee wings to fly from hell,
Each night a star to guide thy feet to heaven!
Laugh like a boy at splendors that have sped,
To vanished joys be blind, and deaf, and dumb;
My judgments seal the dead past with its dead,
But never bind a moment ye, to come!

Though deep in mire, wring not your hands and weep;
I lend my arm to all who say: "I can!"
No shame-faced outcast ever sank so deep
But yet might rise and be again a man!
-Walter Malone.

"Blue Bell"-yes, that nom de plume sounds very familiar.
but who, then, is "Magnolia," to whom I gave my former name?
Methinks you two are smiling down there at Anthony because
of my guessing wrong. Thanks, Blue Bell, for your Banner praise.

Ocala, Fla., June 25, 1909.
Rev. C. C. Carroll-Dear Brother:
At a recent meeting of the Ministerial
Association of the city of Ocala, we
were Instructed to write you a letter
expressing the sincere regrets of the
association collectively and of its
members, severally and individually,
that you have been called from our
midst to another- field of spiritual ac-
tivity and service, but being confident
that you have yielded to the call of
God's Spirit and His overruling provi-
dence, we are constrained, even under
a sense of our loss, to bid you God
speed and wish you well, earnestly
praying God's richest blessings upon
you in your new and larger field of
Christian work. What the city of
Ocala. the Church of Christ at large.
your own church in particular, and
our association may lose by your de-
parture, we feel the city of Owensbore
and the church there will gain; and
:ience congratulating that city and
the church there on securing such a
valuable acquisition to the citizenship
of the place, and to the pulpit of one
of her strongest churches, we most
cordially commend you to their con-
fidence and esteem, and pray that
your more abundant labors in the
cause of our common Master and Sa-
viour will be more abundantly blessed
and that the pleasure of the Lord may
be manifest in all your works.

The Rev. Mr. Gabbey of Cadiz, Ky.,
the new minister for the First Baptist
church of this city. accompanied by
Mrs. Gabbey. arrived in the city last
Friday afternoon. For the present
they are guests at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Isaac Stevens, but later will

that they will occupy the house on
Watula street, recently purchased by
Rev. W. H. Coleman, and which be is
now busy having fixed up so nicely.
Mr. Gabbey comes to Ocala splen-
didly recommended, and will meet
with a very cordial welcome from our
citizens. Mr. Gabbey will preach his
first sermon at the Baptist church
This paper extends a hearty wel-
come to Mr. and Mrs. Gabbey.


The weekly open air concert last

Certainly I will answer with something that offsets, and is
more encouraging for all. The poem you sent was written by
John J. Ingalls, and is "awfully discouraging," as you wrote. Be-
ing in unison with Judge Walter Malone of Memphis, Tenn., on
the subject, I will give his text of this Ingalls' sonnet, and his
poem-so much brighter. He has certainly antagonized its cen-
tral thought by a series of lines of surpassing beauty and
strength, which will cause smiles of delight and renewed antici-

Willam Allen White achieved fame
In a day by writing an editorial, cap-
tioned, "What's the Matter With
Kansas?" for his Emporia paper. That
was away back in the populist and
grasshopper days and the question
has been answered hundreds and
tvohv-n4@ of times since, sometimes
to the credit of Kansas and oftener in
a Jesting mood. Just now we are in-
clined to the opinion that If there is
anything the matter with Kansas it is
because the legislature has overlooked
it That state has been so busy mak-
ing people good by legislation that, if
the laws are all working well, the
name of the commonwealth should be
changed to Arcadia, or Utopia.
A new bunch of Kansas laws went
into effect on June 1. Of course,
some prohibition laws are among the
number. Kansas has been legislating
against the thirst so long that the na-

tives would feel lonesome should the
*legislature adjourn without enacting
some new wrinkle in the temperance
line. The new law prohibits the sell-
ing of any fluid that contains as much
as 2 per cent of alcohol. Physicians
are not allowed to prescribe whiskey
as medicine and individuals are pro
hibited from selling, drinking or giv-
ing drinks of intoxicating liquor. The
Slaw-makers propose to make "dry"
mean something.
But Kansas was not content to con-
fine efforts of the moral uplift to the
suppression of booze. Another law
enacted makes a fruit tree agent who
misrepresents his wares liable to a
fine and imprisonment. It is made
unlawful to shoot an American eagle
and child actors are not allowed to ap-
pear in the theaters. The farmers find
that they are too busy to watch their
pigs and so the legislature has passed
a law requiring railroads to build hog-
tight fences along the right of way
where farmers request it. Cities are
compelled to preserve the purity of
streams in their vicinity and mer-
chants are prohibited from publishing
advertisements of bargains that they
cannot justify by the production of
the specified good son demand.
If the Kansas legislators only wauld
meet In special session and pass laws
against the June rise in the Kaw riv-
er, abolishing the hot winds in July
and appropriating money for the sup-

pression of the cinder beetle, discov-
ered by Professor Adna P. Gristlebone
near Coolidge, the state would have
absolutely nothing to worry about.-
Kansas Citizen.

A Berlin letter says that out of the
mass of so-called "elephantine" papy-
rus in the Royal Museum at Berlin,
on which a number of scholars have
been at work several months, have
come some of the most curious "finds"
the scientific world has been present-
ed with in years.
One of these is the most ancient
marriage contract in the world, ac-
cording to Professor Leopold Wenger,
an eminent hellenist. Written in ex-
cellent classical Greek, and from its
context evidently composed about 311
B. C.. the document begins: "In the
seventh year of the reign of Alexan-
der. the son of Alexander, in the four-
teenth. year of the satrapy of Ptole-
maos in the month of Dios."
This contract sets forth that Herak-
leides has agreed to take as his wife
Memetria. of Kos, the lawful daughter
of her father, Leptines. and of her
mother. Philetis. Then it acknowl-
edges the receipt of clothing and jew-
els valued at a thousand drachmas.
which Demetria has laid at his feet
in recognition of the honor he is about
to bestow upon her. Even the newly
wedded couple's place of residence is
given in the agreement. The rest of
the contract deals with the possibility
of the husband's unfaithfulness and
provides for the regulation and settle-
ment of any lapse of obligation. That
Demetria should be untrue evidently
was not contemplated, as no mention
is made of such possibility.
In case the husband should forget
his vows it is provided that each side
shall appoint an arbitrator and when
the charge is proved the marriage is
to be dissolved, the husband giving
back the thousand drachmas' worth
of clothes and jewels and paying be-
sides a thousand drachmas in Alexan.
drine silver currency.
Six witnesses signed the contract.

It will be seen that even at that
early age of the world silver was cur-

Shaft Erected on Virginia Battlefietd
by Col. Iziar of Orangeburg.
Within the last week a beautiful
monument to commemorate the
brilliant charge made on Sunday, the
21st day of August, 1864, by Hagood's
brigade of South Carolina, on the
earthworks near the Weldon railroad,

held by

Warren's cops, has been
by Col. William V. Izlar, a

citizen and prominent business man
of Orangeburg, S. C., aided by other
South Carolinians.
The monument, the work of our
townsman, Mr. Charles M. Walsh,
made of Dinwiddie granite, stands
nine and a half feet high, with a base
five feet square. On its east side,
fronting the Halifax road, is the fol-
lowing inscription, briefly telling the
story of the charge:
"Here a brigade composed of the
7th battalion, the 11th, 21st, 25th and
27th regiments, South Carolina Vol-
unteers, commanded by Brig. Gen.
Johnson Hagood, charged Warren's
Federal corps on the 21st day of Au-
gust, 1864, taking into the fight 746
men, returning with 272. No prouder
fate than theirs who gave their lives
to liberty."
On the opposite or west side of the
die is a 15-inch bronze shield of the
state of South Carolina.
On the four sides of the base of the
monument are inscriptions, that on
the east side being as follow: "Ha-

good's Brigade."

On the south

Col. Izlar was a lieutenant in one of
the companies of the 25th regiment
of South Carolina Volunteers, with a
record for gallantry. His present title
was given him by a staff officer of one
of the governors of South Carolina.
He is entitled to the credit of sutcess
in his work of love in erecting this
handsome tribute to his comrade.
The land upon which. this monu-
ment stands, a square of fifteen feet,
about fifty feet from the Halifax road,
with a right of way from the road to
the monument, was generously donat-
ed by a northern lady, whose husband
was a Federal soldier. Col. Izlar, by
a deed of the same date with that by
which the land was donated, conv-yed
the land and monument to Governor
Swanson and his successors in office,
the deed reciting that the grant is
made with the belief that, by reason
of the fraternal ties that bind the
commonwealth of Verginia and the
commonwealth of South Carolina, the
land and monument will be held as a
sacred trust.
The handsome act of a northern
lady, now living in Virginia, in donat-
ing a part of her land for the erec-
tion of the monument and the donors'
conveying the land and monument to
the governor of Virginia, are interest-
ing incidents in Lae history of the
monument, full of beautiful sentiment.

Judged by the business done
through the postal department, Ocala
continues to lead all interior cities.
It will be seen that Tallahassee
pushes Ocala to a close second, but
the legislature was in session this
year, which largely accounts for the
increase in its postal business, while
Occla just keeps along in the even
tenor of its way. doing a steady, pro-
gressive business.
The postal footings for the calendar

Fertilizer COSTS Nothing

IDEAL Investment

Many seem to think that after the crop is set, the trees are
going to mature in some way, and anything they can save on fer-
tilizer is clear gain, but actual results preve that a summer fertil.
izing costs less than nothing. By making each fruit a little lr%.r
many boxes are added to the crop and the fruit brings a higher
price. Then, a luxurant growth of bearing wood is a necewary
foundation for a large croo next year. and still further gain is ,nm
in the condition of the trees. If their vitality has been kept ep
they are better prepared for winter and for strong spring setion
than trees that have become thoroughly exhausted and have to b
nursed up before they can tespondu to the call of spring.

The following wrfte-up of Ocala will
appear in the new Encyclopedia Bria-
"Ocala, a city and the county seat
of Marion county, Florida, U. S. A., In
the north central part of the state,
about 100 miles southwest of Jackson-
ville. It is served by the Seaboard
Air Line and Atlantic Coast Lne
railways. Population, (1900), 3380;
1905, state census), 44M9, of whom
2467 were negroes. About six miles
east of Ocala is the famous Silver
Spring, the largest and best known of
the springs of Florida. Its basin is
circular, about 600 feet in diameter;
it is about 65 feet in depth, and its
waters are remarkable for their
transparency and refractive powers.
According to the estimate of Dr. D.
G. Brinton, the spring discharges
more than 300,000,000 gallons of wa-
ter dally, its outflow forming what is
known as Silver Spring run, 9 miles
long, emptying into the Ocklawaha
river and navigable by small river
steamers. For the drainage and sew-
erage of the city a subterranean riv-
er whose source and mouth are un-
known ,is utilized. The city is the seat
of the Emerson Memorial Home
(Methodist Episcopal) for negro girls.
Ocala is the commercial center for a
fertile region, the name "Ocala" mean-
ing in the Seminole Indian language,
gree, or fertile lands, and is the ship-
ping point for the watermelons and
cantaloupes grown here, and for the
large quantities of phosphate rock
found in the vicinity. Machinery for
phosphate plants, ice and lime are
manufactured here. Ocala was set-
tled in 1858, but its development
dates from 1880, when it was first
chartered as a city. In December.
1890, it was the meeting place of the
national convention of the Farmers'
Alliance, which promulgatedd .- s0-
ment of political principles, generally
known as the "Ocala Platform." (See
Farmers' Movement.)

The funeral services over the body
of Mr. F. D. Roberts were held in
Ocala Monday afternoon at the un-
dertaking chapel of Messrs. Mclver &
MacKay, Mr. A. E. Owen in charge
of the funeral arrangements.
The Dunnellon and Ocala lodge of
Knights of Pythias conducted the fun-
eral, assisted by Rev. G. H. Harricon
of Grace L' iscopal church.
There were three pall bearers from
the Dunnellon lodge ,of which the de-
ceased was a member and three from
the Ocala lodge. After the services
at the chapel the remains wre taken
to Greenwood cemetery, where the in-
terment took place. Many friends ac-
companied the remains to their last
resting place. .
Mr. Roberts was struck by lightning
Saturday attrnoon at his home at Le-
von, and instantly killed. No other
member of his family was hurt, but
considerable damage was done to the
house. There were several conflicting
reports of the accident, the first being
that Mr. Roberts was driving in his
buggy during the thunder storm and
that both he and his horse were kill-
Mr. Roberts was about forty-five
years of age, and is survived by a wife
and seven children. They reside-d in
Ocala for several years before moving
to Levon.

Wednesday afternoon a large num-
ber of little folks responded to Miss
Elizabeth Bennett's attractive invita-
tions to her seventh birthday party,
and they certainly had a splendid
time romping and playing, as they had
been bidden to do. The wet weather
prevented the children from playing
out of doors, but as the Clark home
is a large one they had ample room
for their games inside Mrs. Bennett
and her mother, Mrs Clark, assisted
by Mrs. Hunnicutt and Mrs. Seligman,
played with the children and gave
them a royal good time.
Ice cream, cake and candy were
served and greatly enjoyed. As nfa-
vors each little boy received a bag of
marbles and the little girls tiny doll
The lovely little hostess received
many pretty birthday gifts, which she
appreciates very highly and which
made the afternoon all the more en-
joyable for her.
During the afternoon little Miss
Elizabeth, who has an exceedingly
sweet voice, sang a dear little song,
which greatly pleased the other chil-

S Maor Gore o f Oklahma, although
Sa bind. manon, has a political visao
wMhs has been justifed by the sao-
Soams of his twenty odd years of effort


Mr. 8. G. McLendou. chairman of
the Georgia railroad comm ton, was
appointed to that place because he
made Governor Smith believe that he
was tn sympathy with his efforts to se-
cure port rates for Atlanta and other
Interior towns of Georgia. When the
-preme moment came and all de-
penaded upon the action of his ap-
pointee he went clearly back upon
Governor Smith's pet measure, and his
vote denied to Atlanta those Just and
equal rates.
As soon as his decision was made
known Governor Smith issued an or-
der suspeding him from office and
now this problem will take definite
shape and will become the leading is-
sue In the polities of the empire state.
It must be fought out on the forum
and in the newspapers and when it is
thoroughly understood we have little
doubt but that Governor Smith will be
sustained and if he wants It he will
be re-elected governor by a larger vote
than he received when he was elcct-
ed when he ran against Editor Clark
Howell some years ago.
We want to see that made not only
the leading issue in Georgia, but in
all the states, and when interior cities
are placed on an equal tooting with
the seaport and river cities and the in-
terior cities begin to pile up popula-
tions and manufacturing industries
the railroads will be the largest bene-
flciaries, and will wonder why they
have stood in their own light for so
loag a time.
The interior asks nothing but an
equal chance in the race for commer-
cial supremacy. That's all-that
much, sooner or later, she must have
and will have.


Ex-Governor Broward was in Miami
recently, and the Metropolis quotes
him as follows, anent the coming sen-
atorial race:
"I don't care to make the hace," said
he. "Somebody must be in it for us
who has either money or acquaint-
ances, and at this time I don't see
who we've got to make the fight.
Somebody's got to do it As it is the
people of Florida haven't any repre-
sentation in congress; all the bosses
have to do is to tell them to get in
line and they get.
"No, I would rather not make the
race. It takes money and time; but
I may have to do it. Some of my
fries have asked me if I would run,
mmd I have told them that I wouldn't
delay that I might run, and I reserved
the right if I wanted to."--Apalachi-
cola Times.
There's nothing compulsory about
It, but It would be a good idea to off
with the old campaign debts before on
with any new ones. Begin with a
clean slate, governor.


Winter Garden, Fla., June 22, 1909.
Dear Old Banner: Every time I
think of you my heart flops up and
down like a churn dasher. Waves
of unco trollable seem to caper over
it like young goats on a stable roof.
Vistoms visit me in my slumber, bear-
lag on visible wings thine image.
When I arise to grasp it. It disappears
like Broward in the primaries. When
the pig grunts and goes forth for his
morning refreshments; when the
dragon beetle wheels its flight at sul-
try noon, or when the lowing cow
comes home at milknlag time, I think
of you. My heart, like a piece of gum-
Arabie, seems to strike clear across
mgy besom.

If these few remarks do not enable
yoe to see the taunde of my soul and
me to win your comadeace for anoth-
er year's sbecription, I must with-

ate. He is the proprietor of the

The Oklahoman is quoted as seeing
in the income and corporation tax
complication an issue on which he
thinks the democratic party will final-
ly ride into control of congress and
possibly into the presidency And
what is more, his analysis of the sit-
uation has been giving thought and
pause to a good many of the republi-
cans during the last few days
"I shall vote against substituting
the corporation tax for the Income
tax," said Senator Gore, "but if the
corporation tax Is substituted I shall
support It. Of course I shall vote also
for the submission of the income tax
amendment to the constitution.
"The amendment doubtless will be
submitted by the present session of
congress; and after that there will be
a number of state legislatures to -be
chosen this year, more of them next
year, and so on. Next January the
legislatures will begin their sittings,
and from week to week will come In
announcements of their action ratify-
ing the amendment.
"The succeeding winter more legis-
latures will meet, and more ratifica-
tions will come in. But there will be
some inharmonious notes. Now and
then a legislature will reject the
amendment. New England will not
be for it; some of the far western
states iwll defeat it; some of the mid-
dle Atlantic states likewise. When it
is all over the discovery will be irade
that by 1912 the amendment will have
been rejected by a number of repub-
lican legislatures, but not by a single
democratic one. It will become an is-
sue in every state where it has once
been rejected or where action upon it
has been prevented by reference ;o an
unfriendly committee, or otherwise.
"Along about 1912 it will be found
that the democrats are all for it, and
that the only enemies it has to fear
are republican legislatures in certain
conservative states."-Tampa Trib-

We do not believe the capital of
Florida will ever be removed from
Tallahassee, nor do we believe that
the matter will be submitted to the
people again during the present gen-
eration, but when these agitators get
to telling the dear people of what a
hardship it Is for the people of south
Florida to reach the capital of the
state they should remember that it
Is two hundred and three miles from
the Deep Water City to the capital
now, and if it is removed to Jackson-
ville, it will be carrying it Just one
hundred and sixty miles further. If
south Florida is so anxious to get rid
of west Florida and will demonstrate
that willingness by proper legislation,
we believe that a near-by state would
only be too glad to annex this terri-
tory, and accord to It such political
and commercial rights as it has never
enjoyed under the state government
of Ilorida.-Pensacola News.

when it assumes that south Florida
wants to get rid of west Florida be-
cause certain ones have started a

Brother Mayes of the Pensacola
Journal Is one of .the ablest editors
In the state, but he belongs to that,
school of thinkers who believe the
common, every-day mortal, coming In
touch with a corporation of any kind
is likely to become copt-minated. He
almost gets wrathy in his reply to our
attempt to set him straight on the
newspaper pass question. He sur-
rounds the difference in point thusly:
"As to the kind of pass our contem-
porary desires for the newspapers, we
no not know that either the amount or
character of the STUFF (the capitals
are ours) exchanged for the pass
makes any difference so far as the
public policy is concerned." For the
Journal editor's benefit we will rtate
that the railroads are making the kind
of contracts referred to, that is, some
are, and the railroad commission is
not preventing it. But the chairman
of the commission is credited with
having lobbied against the situation
being made clearer by writing a
clause into the law defining Just what
kind of a contract could be made. The
chairman of the commission would
doubtless be glad to have the infer-
ence accepted that the newspapers
are easily bought, for the papers of
the state are almost a unit in the
opinion that we have had enough of
such political buncombe as excapes
through the hot air exhaust from the
railroad commission office.-Havana
(Fla.) News.


Florida editors are getting better.
There's Editor Walpole, takes dinner
with the governor and meets our com-
mon senator, Joe Humphries, at the
state capital. He returns home and
pays grateful tribute to the courtesy
and ability of the men he formerly
scored and skinned. Then there's Ed-
itor Jordan ("The Old Man") of the
Punta Gorda Herald. He has not only
changed his opinion about pardons
and pardoning boards in Florida, but
admits he formerly wrote without
knowing the other side. And a few
weeks ago he wrote an appreciation
of Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, giv-
ing two columns of editorial space for
the purpose. And Editor Tommus, in
a recent issue of the Morning News
of Tallahassee, copies approvingly an
editorial from the Leeb.urg Commer-
cial, showing the reasonableness of
the fees and commissions received by
Attorney and Agent W. S. Jennings
from that formerly much-cussed two-
eyed (II.) board. Even on the cast
coast the leaven of kindness is at
work among the pencil-pushers. Edi-
tor Wilson of the St. Lucie Tribune
defends the Florida East Coast Rail-
road against the charge of trying to
ruin the pineapple growers and help-
ing Cuba with cheaper rates. Let the
good work continue. Soon we may
hope to read no sneers in the Tampa
Tribune and the Times-Union against
the anti-liquor contingent among their
readers.-Arcadia News.


The governor has made public his
reasons for vetoing the bill requiring
that all paid matter in newspapers be
plainly marked as advertisements.
His argument is very complete and
sufficient, but he might have placed
more emphasis on the fact that such
legislation is a further and needless
interference with business that does
not come within the regulative power

of the legislature. There is no good
to be accomplished by such a freak
bill as this. An invasion of private
rights and privileges may be justified
by alleging and proving that great
public good would result, but as a
rule the world is governed too much
and there is and can be no valid rea-
son for cumbering the statute books
with useless lumber. The governor's
views are clear, and he fortifies his
position adverse to the bill by citing
the general disapproval of the editor-
ial profession.-Titusville Star.

"CO. J."

Queries have often been heard as to
why the letter "J" is left out when
designating by letters the companies
of a regiment. The current issue of
the Army and Navy Journal says that
designation by letter dates back to the
time when there was no letter "J" in
our alphabet, as there is not to the
present day in either the Greek or the
Italian. The Informafton goes on to
say in examining old prints one will
readily discover the letter "I" doing
duty both as a vowel and as a conson-
ant See, for instance, any printer's
"cap" case and note the "J" and "U"

Reviewing Mr. Ingraham's art"ile,
giving a detailed and graphic accoMat
of Mr. Flagler's efforts for Florida,
'the Baltimore Manufacturer's Record
"Within ten years the east coast of
Florida will have a larger population
than that of the entire state at pres-
Such was the prediction of a lead-
ing railroad official and banker one
day last winter after he had for the
first time made a careful personal In-
vestigation of the great work which
Mr. Flagler has for years been doing
in the development of the territory
tributary to the East Coast railroad.
Like many others who had not studied
the situation personally, he had been
somewhat skeptical about the future
of the East Coast line, and had re-
warded that wonderful piece of engi-
neering by which the road is being ex-
tended to Key West as a magnificent
piece of financial and engineering dar-
ing rather than as a sound business
proposition, based on well studied out
conditions. After this railroad official
and banker had seen for himself the
remarkable development of orange
and grapefruit and pineapple growing,
the advance that is being made in
trucking, the attractions of the coun-
try as a winter resort, and the great
possibilities for travel and traffic be-
tween the United States and the West
Indies and Central and South America
via the East Coast line to Key V est,
his opinion changed, and he freely ex-
pressed his belief that this great
work of Mr. Flagler is already an as-
sured financial and business success.
And it was then, as he studied the
great work which the East Coast Rail-
road Company is doing in making
known the attractions of that section
for settlers as well as for winter tour-
ists, that he expressed the belief quot-
ed at the beginning of this article.
Elsewhere in this issue is a story
written by Mr. J. E. Ingraham, vice
president of the Floirda East Coast
railroad, about the work of Mr. Flag-
ler in the development of that line,
and incidentally in connection there-
with the development of Florida. No
other man in Florida or elsewhere has
been in so good a position as Mr. In-
graham to write such a story. Iden-
tified for many years with every de-
partment of Mr. Flagler's Florida
work, and his active agent in carry-
ing out many of the, undertakings
planned and financed by him, Mr. In-
graham has done a public service in
giving a detailed history of the work.

Although the jury disagreed in the
case of Patrick Calhoun, president of
the United Railways of San Francis-
co, a courageous attempt was made
to reach one really responsible man.
There is not a shadow of doubt
that the supervisors were bribed to
vote a permit to the street railway
company to substitute the trolley sys-
tem for the cable linmps after the 1906
earthquake. They have confessed
their guilt and named the sums that
each received. One after another
they have sworn to the facts, taken
the witness stand in several trolley
trials and retold the details of the
corrupt bargain over and over again.
The trial of President Calhoun, how-
ever, turned only on the offer of a
bribe of $4000 to one supervisor, Fred
P. Nicholas, who admits having ac-
cepted it for his vote in favor of Cal-

houn's company. The lump sum of
money involved has been traced from
New York to the San Francisco mint,
from the mint in thred installments
on President Calhoun's signed orders
to President Calhoun's attorney,
from Ruef to the supervisors within
a few days following the final passage
of the trolley permit. And, curiously,
in his defense President Calhoun's
lawyers refused to call to the stand
either his attorney, who drew the
$200,000 from the mint, or Ruef, from
whom supervisors received a smaller
sum for distribution among them-
If President Calhoun was ignorant
of the disposal of this large sum of
money and of the reasons for the su-
pervisors suddenly approving his com.
pany's plans he is a singularly inno-
cent sort of a corporation manager.-


Notwithstanding the fact that many
"freak" bills were passed at Tallahas-
see, not one was introduced for the
inspection of hotel and boarding house
kitchens, some of which are said to be
a disgrace to civilization. A hotel,

necessity made clear of decisive cam-

lovely banner is to remain in North-

but probably not before fall and the

A Cleveland judge did a mean thing.
Guilty himself of dying his whiskers,
he fined a poor farmer, who was up
before him for putting coloring matter
in his butter. "Don't that jar you?"
said the surprised Reuben.

Tell us of your meetings held on

Two well known Endeavorers were
married in Tampa June 16th. The
bride, Miss Mabel Jones, is Junior su-
perintendent of the Hillasboirough and
Manatee district, while Mr. David
Reid, the worthy young man who won
her. is president of the Tampa local
union, and until recently served in
that capacity for the Tampa Heights
Presbyterian society. The beautiful
marriage ceremony was performed by
their pastor, State President Winnard,
making it indeed an Endeavor wed-
ding. For hosts of state and district
comrades we offer hearty congratu-
lations and good wishes for their fu-
ture life.
For several weeks our space in this
paper has contained no communica-
tions of general news matter, but now
that the general routine of office work
is resumed, the customary news let-.
ters will continue being written. It
is a responsibility, and also a pleas-
ure to thus serve as press superin-
tendent for Florida Endeavorers, and
in order that this part of state uork
be of service to all sections of the un-
ion. news should be sent us often to
pass on in this way.
In the called business meeting held
for Northeastern district, recently in
Jacksonville, some thoughts of impor-
tance were emphasized. The almost
ideal plans adopted at the beginning
of the district year, also the report
sent to the Tampa convention, were
read by the secretary, Miss Krook.
Trasurer Mantey's book showed a bal-
ance of over $13 on hand. The state
and district union maps were display-
ed and there was much discussion
about the best places to organize new
societies. Ex-President Pattison was
chosen to carry greetings from the
Northeastern district to the Presby-
terian society in Fernandina, which
has not yet come into its fellowship.
The need of promptly meeting state
and district financial obligations was
emphasized and the importance of as-
sisting the district superintendent of
the press and introduction department
in her work was shown to be urgent
for the welfare of the district in all

7The GaI-aem e S of Tuesday
esntalsM the following write-up of the
bel me played bettween the. Oaines-
vn sad a Ocal teams:
The fast Ocala team won over the
Oak Halls in a loosely played game
yesterday on the loal dnud From
~iI*t ethe ootmt was mark-
ed with numerous and costly errors,
the majority of which were credited

Watme pitched a splendid game,
a *g shade the better of Brown,
the visitors' twirler. "Pop" pitched a
steady game. but ragged fielding back
of him was w m lost It The Brick
city boys took advantage of every
misplay and piled up enough runs to
ary away the bac.
The work of Taylor and Hendricks
for the locals were features of the
game, while Waller, behind the bat,
and Doealdson on second, starred for
the visitors.
The Oeala boys are a fast and clean
set of players, always in the game to
the finish.

* *
Under the head of "Fanatorials,"
the Son also contained the following:
Sandy's double in the fourth was a
nice one.

The visitors were certainly fast on
the bases.

Heandricks cleaned up around third
very nicely yesterday.

Spnttswood's peg to the plate
enter was a nice throw.


Waller's catch of a foul through the
branches was a beaut.

Miller says, "Cheer up, the mines
are not closed-keep a digin'."

To Oeala on July 15th, probably,
and then just watch our smoke.

Spottsowod will probably do the
"cooklWg"-omorrow. Keep 'em boiled
down, Jack.

Heartaleld's injury was regretted.
He encourages the pitcher and keeps
g-ager an the team.

Taylor looks like a natural-born
plar. His work with the willow
will come In handy later on.

Did you notice the large number of
ladles up from Ocala? They were
loyal and enthusiastic all through the

Will Give Pqople of Ocala and Way
Stations Opportunity of Doing
Their Shopping in Tampa

Leaving Ocala promptly at 6:40 a.
m., yesterday, the new special train
of the Coast Line, to be operated reg-
ularly each day between Ocala and
Tampa, excepting Sunday, reached
this city shortly after noon yesterday.
It was the first trip of the "Sunny Jim
Special," so called because Mr. M. E.
Robinson has consistently advocated
the establishment of such a train for
many months and at no time has he
wearied in his advocacy of the prop
As a fitting honor to so able an ad.
vocate, "Sunny Jim" pulled the bell
cord at Oeala, which was the signal
for the start. The train brought a
great number of people to Tampa and
its first run certainly wat a paying
one. It is certain to prove a great
convenience to the people of both
Ocala and Tampa, and points interme-
diate, and will mean much for the ter-
ritory traversed. It left Ocala under
the charge of Conductor George Buz.-
sar and Engineer Trammell, and
there were twenty-seven passengers
aboard. Among these were a number
of traveling men, who remained over
Sunday in Ocala in order to make the
initial trip. Vestibuled coaches were
used and everything was made most
comfortable for all on the trip. Mrs.
Robinson, the estimable wife of the
well known shoe-train advocate, was
also among the passengers. At five
or six stations along the way were
banners bearing the words, "Welcome

ness men who will be benefited by the
operation of this special. The train
returned yesterday afternoon to Ocala.
Traveling Passenger Agent Beazley
declared the trip proved a most pleas-
ant one for all concerned and Divis-
ion Passenger Agent Kirkland de-
clares the train means much for the
section traversed. Especially does
this mean much for those living be-
tween Juliette and Lakeland. Here-
tofore these have been compelled to
spend two nights in Tampa when
coming to the city. In future they
can arrive and leave the same day.
It is also a great convenience for the
people of Dade City, as well as those
living at Dunnellon, Inverness, Floral
City, Hernando, Holder and Trilby.
Train No. 35 carries the passengers
from Ocala to Lakeland; there trans-

fer is made for Tampa to train
27. From Tampa passengers are
tried to Lakeland on train No.



where transfer for Ocala is made to
train No. 32.
Yesterday ninety-nine passengers
went as far south as Lakeland. It is
known that at least forty-nine of this
number continued their travels furth-
er south than Lakeland.-Tampa Tri-

On Wednesday night of this week
R. E. Patrick, a melon dealer, and one
Walker Reed. who were acquaint-
ances, slept in the same room at the
Magnolia Hotel in Leesburg. Patrick
went to bed with a purse containing
$35o under his pillow, but when he
got up Thursday morning the purse
and Reed were both gone. As Reed
had not left town Patrick proceeded
to have hi arrested. When Marshal
Torian brought him before Judge Ivey,
Reed vigorously denied being the
thief, but said that rather than Lave
trouble about the matter he would
pay Patrick $250 in money and give
him a diamond ring worth $100. Pat-
rick cheerfully accepted the offer and
the charge was dismissed. But the,
end was not yet. Jasper Cureton.
whose eyes are always open, carries
the Seaboard mail, and on Tuesday
morning, just at daylight. as he went
to the depot by a short route, he saw
a well dressed young man in the bush-
es north of town scratching in the
sand. He recognized him as being
Walker Reed. A few hours later he
reported the matter to Mr. Torian.
After the compromise between Pat-
rick and Reed had been made. Torian,
Patrick. Cureton and perhaps one or
two others, walked down to the spot
where Cureton had seen Reed so ear-
ly in the morning. There they soon
found Patrick's tat purse buried in the
oil. It still contained every cent of
the $360. Patrick put the purse and
Its contents in his pocket, and turned
over to Torian the $250 and the ring
which Reed had given him. Torian
sow being fully convinced that Reed
stole the money, set out to have him
arrested again, in order that the claim
of the state might be satisfied, but
Reed got information of this fact
through a friend and left town without
ceremony. Hereafter when Reed bur-

The Marie Celeste was sailed to Gi-

ship from the first, and a "hoodoo"
ship she remained to the end. Fromi
the day the Marie Celeste was launch-
ed in 1869 to the day she was finally
wrecked in 1885. her career was one
long series of misfortunes, useless ex-
penses, etc.. to her successive cwn-
ers. It was claimed that he last cap-
tain (in 1S85) purposely ran her into
a reef in order to collect insurance
for the owners on a luckless ship and
an alleged worthless cargo.

Savannah News. The esteemed News
mistakes the matter. There is no
problem about it. It is the old time,
old kind of democrats whose organi-
zation was a power in this state, from
the close of the civil war up to the
shameful compromise at the Tampa
convention a few years ago, who are
tired of consorting with those of eth-
er political faiths. Tired of having
their party organization utterly de-
stroyed by populism, socialism and
n tbhingism. These are the ones who
want to reorganize their party along
its old lines and once more stand for
settled principles and policies and be
entitled to and command the respect
of the public. We want the old-time
religion.-Jasper News.


The Miami newspapers should learn
that until we can get congressmen so
true to principle that not even fear
of being turned down by constituents
will deter them from devotion to their
party, and until those constituents
themselves can rise above the selfish
policy of denying their creed when
their own immediate money interests
are at stake, we can never look for
true democracy-a government in the
interest of all the people. And, per-
haps. the worst part of the situation
is that such want of devotion and such
selfishness open the way for the ene-
mies of democracy to point the "slow,
unmoving finger of scorn." whether
Justly or not, and cast slurs upon the
followers of those great fundamental
doctrines whose absolute enforcement
would mean the exodus of the people

Florida sought to restore the house
rate. Saying that pineapples could
be imported from Cuba at 50 cents a

the $8 duty added, Mr. Taliaferro dis-
claimed any desire for a protective

because it would increase the reven-
He said that the duty on pineapples
would be doubled so that, as even the
importation from Cuba would not be
reduced, we woudl get $200,000 in the

Mr. Taliaferro yielded, as he said,
the floor "to those gentlemen who pro-
pose to speak for the canners." He
looked towards the two Maryland sen-
ators, who were waiting to address
the senate, and succeeded in getting
a "rise" from both of them. In rath-
er indignant tones Mr. Rayner assert-
ed that he should not appear for the
canners but for the consumers. Mr.
Smith said he spoke for no special in-
terest, but for humanity.
Mr. Rayner criticized the rate of
one-half of one cent a pound on pine-
apples when in crates or barrels, in-
volved in the amendment of the Flor-
ida senator as being equal to 32 cents
a crate instead of 14 cents under the
Dingley law. Mr. Rayner said he
would prove Mr. Taliaferro was advo-
cating a high protective tariff.
"I hope the senator will offer his
proof of this slander or say no more
about it," said Mr. Taliaferro.
Quoting from a letter from the Flor-
ida Fruit and Vegetable Shippers'
Protective Association, in support of
the increased rate. Mr. Rayner showed
that it was asked for as a protective
Insisting that a higher rate of duty
was needed to make the pineapple in-
dustry prosperous in Florida, Mr. Flet-
cher of Florida became involved in
the controversy. He had hesitated to
place his advocacy of !the higher duty
on any ground except that of a reven-
ue producer, and Mr. Dixon and Mr.
Jones suggt.ted that he was losing
their -.upport because they were cnly
inclined to vote for his amendment as
a policy of protecting an American "n-

Mr. Fletcher's Position
"I am going to place the matter be-
fore the senate upon its merits," re-
sponded Mr. Fletcher, "and any sena-
tor can figure it for himself whether
he votes for it for one reason or for
another reason."
Opposing what he regarded as the
"enormous increase of duty on pine-
apples," Senator Root referred to the
relations of this country with Cuba,
saying they were such as should influ-
ence the national policy in the laying
of tariff duties on Cuban products.
Under th treaty of 1903, he said,
the exports of this country to Cuba
had increased from $27,000,000 to $47,-
000,000, or 84 per cent. in five years,
and he contended that we should recip-
rocate such liberal purchases of our
products by giving the Cubans such
advantages as we can on their impor-
tations to this country.
Our imports from Cuba, Mr. Root
said, had increased in those years but
9 per cent.., and he thought that was a
fair showing of increase in trade in
favor of this country. To enter into
a treaty with Cuba, granting 20 per
cent. preference to imports from Cu-
ba, and then raise the duty on such
an article as pineapples he thought
was not dealing fairly with, the island.
Mr. Warren asked Mr. Root whether
he expected the United States would
again send an army to Cuba if need-
ed without requiring the island to pay
the expense.
Saying he could not determine such
a question in advance, Mr. Root de-
clared that the protective advantages
of our relations with Cuba far out-
weighed any expense that the United
States had been out to in connection
with the island.
"Did Cuba give us the preference
when she bought $2,000,000 or $3,000,-
000 worth of rifles from Germany,"
asked Mr. Scott.
Mr. Root said the Cubans had been
accustomed to buying from Europe,
and he thought the country was doing
very well in increasing its trade with
the United States to the extent that
it was doing.
"We must keep Cuba free, independ-
,ent and peaceful, or else we shall face
the alternative of letting Cuba go to
some foreign power, which we never
can Dermit. or to take it to ourselves,

Washington, June -The first
vote on the lumber schedule in the
senate today was on an amendment by
Senator McCumber proposing the rate
of $1 per thousand on sawed lumber
instead of the $1.50 decided upon by
the finance committee. The commit,
tee was sustained 44 to 22.
From the beginning of the session
there has been a decided contest over
the lumber rate, and one of the hard-
est fights made by the northwestern
senators had been for free lumber. In
the house the reformers succeeded in
reducing the Dingley law rate from $2
to $1.
On the affirmative votes on the Mc-
Cumber amendment only ten were
cast by democrats, as follows: Bank-
head, Clay, Davis, Gore, Hughes, John-
ston, McLaurin, Overman, Paynter and
Insisting that the differentials on
planed or finished lumber provided by
the finance committee were unneces-
sarily high, Mr. McCumber offered an
amendment reducing them 33 1-3 per
cent. and reducing the duty on sawed
lumber to $1.25 a thousand feet.
Mr. Aldrich had read a letter from
a Vermont sawmill owner showing
that the mills charged four times as
much to tongue and groove and plane
a board on four sides as to plane it on
one side.
Jumping quickly to his feet Senator
Tillman denied that such difference of
cost could exist.
"Anybody who has ever been in a
sawmill," be declared, "knows that."
He vociferously chided the Rhode
Island senator, who, he insisted, was
the "whole senate" for not promptly
passing the tariff bill.
As Mr. Aldrich protested that he
wished to vote as soon as possible the
South Carolinian in apologetic manner
for taking up any time in debate, ad-
"When the senator makes a state-
men like that I cannot sit here like
an ass as if I agreed with it when it
is not true."
Mr. McCumber's amendment was re-
jected 30 to 49.
The vote was then taken on the
main proposition, the finance commit-
tee's amendment placing a duty of
$1.50 on sawed lumber with differen-
tials on finished lumber. The amend-
ment won, 50 to 28.
By amendment offered by Mr. Ald-
rich and adopted, the duty on clapp

Henry Fielding, the father of the
modem novel, went wide of the mark
time and again before he made the
shot that brought him his everlasting
With the single exception of his
first venture-that of the sowing of
wild oats, in which he proved to be

a master-Henry Fielding did not
taste of success until he was well
along in life.
Quitting college before he completed
his course, he returned. to England,
and began writing for the stage. A
man of Fielding's ability could not
possibly write trash, but notwithstand-
ing the many brilliant features of his
plays, it turned out that with a sin-
gle exception, they failed to "keep
the stage," and today scarcely one of
them is remembered.
After his playwright experience,
Fielding, at the age of twenty-nine,
married an heiress, retired to a coun-
try house, feasted, gave dinners, kept
fine horses, a pack of hounds, a mag-
nificent retinue of servants in dashing
livery, and in three years went
through his inheritance and his wife's
On his beam-ends, financially, he
turned again to his play writing, and
incidentally to speculating in the
stock of the Haymarket theater.
Whatever Fielding may have been in
other directions, as a business man
he was worthless, and the Haymarket
investment soon went up in smoke.
With the assistance of a friend,
Fielding next tried journalism, pub-
lishing a tri-weekly sheet, after the
order of the Spectator, and known as
the Champion. Before it had fairly
cut its teeth the Champion went the
way of the theater venture, and the
young aristocrat was once more in a
state of "distressing impecuniosity."
Then this man of many plans turn-
ed to the law, his vivid imagination
doubtless supplying him with the vis-
ion of many briefs, with fat retain-
ers, and all that that implied. Admit-
ted to the bar in 1740, when he was
thirty-three, he waited patiently but
vainly for the cases that his fancy
had anticipated. No cases came, and
after his two years in the temple,
Fielding, pretty nearly at his wit's
ends, begged his friends "higher up"
to take pity on him and give him some
sort of a place that would keep him
from the poor house.
They gave him the office of magis-
trate, and for a season one of the
brightest geniuses that the British em-
pire could boast was forced to pass
upon the derelictions of "bums" and

beggars, earning, in his own words,
the "dirtiest money that was ever
earned upon earth."
Despite his waywardness, Fielding
was at heart a gentleman, and withal
as proud as a Lucifer, and he could
not long stand that sort of thing. It
was clear to him that he was not cut
out for such office; "the dirtiest mon-
ey on earth" made him sick, and, giv-
ing up the distasteful job, he turned
once more, in sheer desperation, to
In the meantime a Mr. Richardson
had written a novel called "Pamela,"

upside down Everybody was reading
and talking about "Pamela." It was
"Pamela" at the theaters, "Pamela"
on the street, "Pamela" at church,
"Pamela" in the busses and "'Pamela"
Mr. Richardson was a very staid,
circumspect sort of a gentleman, and
his book was designed to show the re-
ward of virtue, how true it was that
"to be good was to be happy."
Now Fielding did not happen to be
a model of moral perfection, and,
reading Richardson's book, he thought
he saw a chance to have lots of fun
with it, and the result of that thought
was his first novel. "Joseph An-

1ST KWIWon rte,



Miss Mary Harriman, daughter of
the famous railway king, has taken
one of her father's Erie ferryboats and
turned it into a man-o'-peace to fight
tuberculosis. She has presented the
boat to the Brooklyn committee for
the prevention of tuberculosis and the
Brooklyn Red Cross society.
It will go into commission as a part
of the Red Cross navy on July 1, when
its flag will fly over an anchorage off
Columbia street, Brooklyn.
Hammocks, steamer chairs, and
other conveniences for out in the air
sleeping will be arranged for the ac-
commodation of 300 men, women and
children. Three meals a day will be
served on the boat, and between ip.eals
the patients will get all the milk and
eggs they are able to eat.
For the commissary department
Miss Harriman will forage on her
father's country place at Arden, where
the milk is famous and the farm pro-
ducts the best that money can com-
mand. A free bus will be run to the
boat from Brooklyn stations for those
who cannot pay car fare.
It is the design to have the boat so
anchored as to command the full ben-
efit of the bay breezes, with a fine
view of the entire water scope in
which the statue of liberty is the cen-
tral figure. Attendants and physi-
cians will be provided.
The boat will afford a day camp for
sufferers who are not able to get out
of town, and there will be started on
it the first open air school for the
children of Brooklyn who have been
kept away from school during the
term by reason of the disease. The
Red Cross Christmas stamp commit-
tee, of which Mrs. St. Clair McKel-
way was chairman, has raised $4000
to aid in Miss Harriman's generous


Mescal as a narcotic is used to an
extent that is becoming alarming
among the American Indians.
Mescal is the product of a cactus
which has long been used among the
Mexicans as an intoxicant under the
name of pellote. The Indians use the
mescal button, a kind of bean, very
bitter, which is sometimes chewed
and sometimes brewed in a kind of
tea. It produces hallucinations of
such a character as to place this
plant in the same rank with hasheesh,
opium and other drugs which have
produced for men the joys of an arti-
ficial paradise.
The Kiowa Indians are said to have
used the mescal button from time im-
memorial in religious ceremonies.
Gradually the practice has spread
northward. The Poncas and some of
their neighbors in Indian Territory
and Oklahoma took it up. Thence it
extended to the Omahas and Winneba-
goes, and now the practice is acquir-
ing foothold among the Sioux.
The tribes which have longest used
it have sent missionaries to introduce

-their wonderful new medicine among
other tribes, and wherever it be-
comes known its allurements pi'ove
irresistible. Clubs are formed for so-
cial indulgence in this narcotic. In
some cases the students returned
from eastern and other boarding
schools have become members and
promoters of these clubs.
The meetings are usually held. in
the afternoon. After the mysterious
ceremonies in acknowledgment of the
secret power of the strange divinity
have taken place the buttons are
passed around for chewing, four or
five to each member, and the tea is
brewed and drank. Only the novice
experiences any unpleasant sensation,
and this soon passes off. There en-
sues only a blissful feeling of lassi-
itude accompanied by a delicious sense
cf happiness and peace.
One other effect of this remarkable
drug must be noted in this brief sum-
mary. The mescal takes away all de-
sire f'r alcoholic drink.-Hampto.i In-
stitute and Southern Workman.

to her brother. Then she got to think-

Speaking of the above murder trial
the Gainesville Sun ends an editorial
Comment as follows:
Judging from the statement of Kel-
ley Just before sentence was passed
upon him Saturday evening, it is evi-
dent that the jury made no mistake
In their verdict, so far as he is con-
cerned-except that they recommend-
ed him to the mercy of the court. Ev-
Idently he fired the fatal shot, else
how could he know, as he says, that
Davidson is innocent of any connec-
tlon with the crime, and If he (Kel-
ley) is alone responsible for this cold-
blooded murder he owes it to David-
son and the public to make a clean
breast of the whole affair.
This is the second time Kelley has
been sentenced to life Imprisonment
for taking human life, having been
granted a pardon for the first crime
after serving only a few years of his
sentence. Evidently the man has a
mania for taking human life, for we
cannot conceive of the motive which
prompted him to so cruelly murder
Sellars, whom he had never met per-
sonally, and who had never harmed
We repeat that it is strange that
the Jury recommended this man to
mercy after being convinced that he
committed this foul, cold-blooded mur-

day the danger, as shown by Mr. A.

ly from deadly disease. "If it had not
been for Dr. King's New Discovery,
which cured me, I could not have liv-

from a severe lung trouble and a stub-
born cough." To cure sore lungs,

tensive experiments have been made
by the department through its numer-
ous stations, which prove that climatic
conditions, soil, etc., in practically all
parts of this country are adapted to
the growth of the melon.
This season a large quantity are
being raised by the government for
the purpose of seed propagation and
for the introduction to the public.
It is proposed to name the new mel-
on Princess Marie, in honor of the
crown princess of Roumania, whose
guest Mr. Knowles was when he dis-
covered the melons.



The late legislature is still furnish-
ing material for the hammerers. Some
of the blows delivered are real naugh-
ty. For example, this one from the
Bartow Courier Informant: "About the
time our late lamented legislature ad-
journed, the Quincy Times suggested
that none but editors be sent to the
next legislature, remarking that the
editors seemed to know more about
the business than the poor devils who
were there last session. The editor
who would confess that he couldn't
do better than our last batch of solons
ought to go out and hang himself. A
legislature composed of newspaper
men could be counted on for at least
two things-it would pass no freak
bills and waste no time considering
them and it would enact no laws that
would militate against the progress
and property of the state."-Tampa


Here are some items, cited by a
trade journal, of the progress of the
south in recent years:
Since 1867 the south has mined 31,-
000,000 tons of phosphate rock.
In the past century the south has
mined 1,675,000,000 tons of coal.
Since 1869 the south has produced
365,000,000 barrels of petroleum.
Since 1880 the south has cut 270,-
000,000,000 feet of lumber.
In the past ten years the south has
raised 112,500,000 bales of cotton.
Today's aggregate production in
southern manufacturing, agriculture
and mining is more than. $5,000,000,-
000, and some of the results are Loted
tan' the increase between 1880 and 1909
in the true value of property fromn $,-
525,000,000 to $21,000,000,000 or more.
At the present rate of increase the
south's wealth should, within the
next 5 years, approach $80,000,000,000.


In New York there are more than
50 deaths from typhoid and other
intestinal diseases during the fly sea-

Mr. McLendon, taken at his word,
was placed on the Georgia railway
commission and when the Interior
points sought relief through the com-
mission, as strange as it may appear,
he proclaimed that no one wanted the
port rates but a few manufacturers
of Atlanta. s
Mr. McLendon, before his election
as a member of the board of railway
commissioners, claimed that Georgia
had the inherent right to protect her-
self against these gross and unjust
Inequalities. He said that "the con-
tractural rights of the state over its
own creatures, its concurrent power
over the instrumentalities of inter-
state commerce and its reserved

rights of appeal and amendment and
the inherent right o fsoverelgnty."
The legislature of Florida early fix-
ed the rate the railroads should
charge for passenger service per mile
and If it has the right to fix passen-
ger rates it seems that It would also
have the right to fix freight rates or
at least to say that there should be
no discrimination in favor of some
points and against other points.
But the placing of interior points
on an equality with seaport points
ought to appeal to the railroads them-
selves-it ought to occur to them that
the building up of interior points
would be the very making of the rail-
roads.. Every piece of freight would
be grist for the railroad hopper.

Coast Line's New Train Arrived on
First Run at Noon Today
The Atlantic Coast Line's first train
on the long desired Ocala-Tampa run
arrived on time shortly after the noon
hour, and brought in a large number
of Floridians who will attend to buei-
ness and shop in Tampa before the
train returns this afternoon. The in-
auguration of this excellent service
is greatly appreciated along the en-
tire route traversed, and patronage
bids fair to be good throughout the
The Coast Line is particularly wor-
thy of praise from the people of Tam-
pa on account of the service, whieh
will prove of great benefit to the city,
although it cannot prove financially

successful for the road for a consid-
erable time. Hundreds of people who
have for a long time been desirous of
shopping in Tampa and returning to
their homes the same day, will now
have an excellent opportunity of do-
ing so.-Tampa Times.


Saturday night a burglar or bur-

themselves to quite a quantity of
goods of various kinds. No money
was taken.
A colored employee, who was arrest-
ed on suspicion, was released by the
authorities, as he was able to give an
explanation as to his whereabouts on
Saturday night.

Reddick, Fla., Sune 26, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
I would like to write your paper a
few words on the enclosed clipping:
"In spite of Mr. Light's persistent,
insistent and consistent capacity as
the watch-dog of the Florida treasury
so far as legislative expenses were
omoernmed, this session appropriated,
It round figures, eighty thousand dol-
lars, which was practically the same
amount as was expended in 1905 and
197; while the time consumed in
their discussion and passage amount-
ed to enough to have hired an extra
eark or two."--ensacola Journal.
U the Pensacola Journal, before

peie account as pubHmhed in the leg-
slative Journals of 1909 and 1907, it
would have written, I believe, very

10 and 1907 legislatures, and it they
are correct, then legislative expenses

This It what Chief Clerk Kellum of
the lower house has just written me:
"You were always at your post of

burts that there were $4000 saved on

tween the Interest of corporations and
the people you were always found on
the side of the masses. (Signed) J.
0. Kellum.
The first few days of the lower
house there were 19 committee Clerks
employed. They were all discharged
and 5 committee clerks were elected
by the house. Some of those 19
committee clerks were private secre-
taries to noted corportion lobbyists,
also were engaged in cbargi_ moem-
bers of the house for typewriting bills,
etc. Other committee clerks were
NImrreqndets for leading papers,
etc. while some were the children of
members of the house or other politi-
cal frleds, etc., so you see a commit-
tee clerk was drawing pay from three
different pay-masters.

What promises to be one of the
most interesting suits ever brought
in this state has just been filed by At-
torney J. J. Lunsford of this city, in
the circuit court of Hillsborough
county. The plaintiff is Mrs. Dahlia
Bigham, by her next friend, Jose Sil-
va, her father, she being a minor, and
the defendant is Rev. James W. Big-
ham, pastor of the First Methodist
church of Jacksonville, one of the
most prominent ministers in the
The -uit is for alienation of the af-
fections of James Bigham, son of Rev.
J. W. Bigham, and the husband of Mrs.
Dahlia Bigham, the complainant. The
damages are assessed at $20,000.
Mrs. Bigham is now in Tampa, and
has been for some time, living with
her father, Jose Silva. She met young
Bigham in this city, while the latter
was employed at a soda fountain, and
they were much together. Miss Silva
was generally pronounced the pretti-
est young woman in Tampa, and it
was not a surprise when it was learn-
ed that she and Bigham had eloped to
Jacksonville, where they were united
in marriage by Rev. Mr. Bigham, the
father of the young man.
Short Honeymoon
Their married life was short. The
complaint in the suit just filed alleges
various acts of alienation on the part
of the father, and asserts that the
present whereabouts of young Bigham
are unknown to his wife, and that
such knowledge is withheld from her
by the minister. Other allegations
have to do with alleged treatment ac-
corded Mrs. Bigham when she visited
Jacksonville and sought to resume
marital relations with her young hus-
Since returning to Tampa a child
has been born to Mrs. Bigham. The
young mother claims damages from
the father, asserting that he has been
entirely or largely responsible for the
separation of the young couple and
for the present absence of his soam
from his proper sphere as husband
and father.
The suit is brought in this county,
and the Jacksonville minister will
have to defend it in the circuit court
here. Mr. Bigham is a leading figure
In his church and denomination and a
prominent worker in the Anti-Saloon
League. In the last state campaign,
he took a very active part in behalf
of state prohibition, espousing the
cause of Jno. N. C.' Stockton against
Gen. Albert W. Gilchrist, and he was
severely criticized for partiodppting so
thoroughly in factional politics.-Tam-
pa Tribune.
Mrs. Bigham is well known in this
city, having spent several months
here last year with Ocala friends.
The Rev. Mr. Bigham Is also well

known here and the
case will be watched

outcome of the
with interest.


I had occasion not long ago to look
over some divorce statistics, and one
significant fact stood out very prom-
inently-the almost entire absence of
Jewish names. "Why is this, I won-
der?" a friend asked.
It is not so strange when we remem-
ber a few salient facts that are, how-
ever, all too little known. When a
Jew becomes engaged to be married,
for instance, he sends out cards an-
nouncing the fact; often he pays for
an announcement in the newspapers.
He makes his engagement known,
with the result that few Jewish en-
gagements are broken. And if we will
notice the courting of a young Jew
we will find that he is not allowed the
run of all the Jewish homes in his
neighborhood where young Jewesses

live. He is not engaged to half a doz-
en Jewesses before he is twenty-one.
Courtship and marriage are sacred
and ancient customs mong the Jews;
not taken lightly; not entered into
promiscuously. And a strict adher-
ence to this custom leads to one or
two results that stand out very prom-
inently in any investigations of Jew-
ish womanhood; that there exists a
higher standard of purity and virtue
among Jewish women than among the
women of any other race; that there
are -fewer Jewish women on the streets
than of any other race; that there are
fewer divorces among the Jews than
with any other race. In all the in-
vestigations made by this magazine in-
to the fearful results of the parental
policy of silence with children on the
question of their physical selves we
invariably encountered but one condl-
tion among Jewish parents; they had

for thought and study In theoe Incoo-

their wise handling of their young oa
the marriage question. It Is an dome
quietly, but with such marvelous f-
fectiveness that some day when the
divorce figures are analysed it will

has contributed to the Amerecan di-
vorce problem.-Ladies' Home Jour-
