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.

weary of Evelyn girls, wearing short
dresses and Ridinghood curls! Weary
of Gingles who gingle in court, tell-
ing a story too fierce to report; tired
of the ladies who, filled with remorse,
mourn that they married and ask for
divorce; making their oaths with a
courage sublime, that they were scus-

the blooming American maids, loaded
with wealth that their fathers amass-
ed, marry cheap princes of poverty
vast. Alas for the damsel who mar-
ries a lord! Dukes are so cheap that
they sell by the cord. I am so tired;
of 'he mills of divorce, tired of the
evidence, sordid and coarse: mar-

Schneider plunged in the river with-

carried both down stream, but, luck-

and the exhausted man.
"Everybody here is praising Mr.
Schneider for his heroism. But he
says, only: 'Oh, pshaw. Any fellow
would have done the same.'

Tallahassee, Fla.. July 27, 1909.
Subject-Wreck of A. C. L. Train, 4
Miles North of Ocala.
Hon. R. Hudson Burr, Hon. Newton
A. Blitch, Hon. Royal C. Dunn.
Railroad Commissioners:
Gentlemen-As per your instruc-
tions, I went to place of wreck on the
A. C. L. road, north of Ocala, to deter-
mine, it possible,' the cause, and the
extent of damage. The wreck occur-
red July 20th. I got there the alter-
noon of July 23rd. and found the
wreck cleared, coaches removed and
track repaired.
The wreck was at a switch about
four miles north of Ocala, where a
temporary spur track was put ir. to
handle the melon crop.
The switch is located on a straight
line, and on a grade about two hun-
dred and fifty feet from the foot of
the grade. The train was going down
the grade towards Ocala, and run-
ning at a rate of approximately twen-
ty miles an hour, as near as I could
determine, from the little Informa-
tion that I could get.
I found 'that the derailed coaches
left the track near the end of the
switch rail and followed the line of
the spur track. There were no marks
on the ties or rails to show that any-
thing had fallen from the cars or any
obstruction on the track to throw,
them off, and there was nothing by
which anyone could determine the
cause of the derailment. The w PrK

train came while I was there, an tIn I-U5UE
learned from the foreman that the !I. S E ee
bolt which fastens the connecting roil to
to the switch stand was found lying' Vetabt
on the ground beneath the stand. This If =Y4 "
bolt holds one end of the connecting s
rod to the switch stand and is keyed s 99h wl101 "
on to prevent it from working loose. aiMW
The other end of the rod is fastened -..
to the head switch rod. This bolt be- dista, n sad srfacb- wM v b e

set by Dr. j. C. Boozer of Ocala is

Then, after quoting what a local

Journal continues in the following
enthusiastic manner in commenda-

Maintains His Innocence to the Last.
Says He Has Made His Peace
With God and is Ready to Go

From Tuesday's Daily:
A representative of the Ocala Ban-
ner saw Alfred Smith, the condemned
murderer, yesterday afternoon in his
cell at the county jail, and In answer
to the question as to whether he had
anything to say for publication before
his execution, which takes place to-
day, he said that he did not, except to
state that he is innocent of the crime
of which he was convicted at the last
term of the circuit court.
Several preachers, both white and
colored, have been calling on Smith
for some time, and to these he says
he has made his peace with his Ma-
ker, and though he is entirely Inno-
cent of the murder charged to his ac-
count, he is willing to die. He feels
that he is going to that land "where
the wicked cease from troubling and
the weary are at rest."
Rev. P. W. Gowens, the oldest min-
ister in the A. M. E. church in this
city, was with Smith yesterday after-
noon, and held prayer and advised
with him. Among other advice given
by this aged minister of the gospel to
the condemned man was that If he
were innocent of this crime and knew
the perpetrators it was his duty to
God and man to tell of it before he
crossed to the great beyond. On the
other hand, as he had nothing to gain
by withholding the information, he
should, if guilty, confess his crime be-
fore the world, and die like a man,
and not go before the final judgment
bar with a lie on his lips.
Smith joined the preacher In sever-
al songs, and on bidding him good-
bye assured him that all was well
with his soul.
The crime for which. Smith Is to pay
the death penalty today was the kill-
ing on the night of April 4th. of Isaac
Draft, colored, at his home near Mar-
Isabella Draft, wife of Isaac, who
was also convicted with Smith, has
received a life sentence, but Is still

and everything is in readiness for

M~-meily publication printed in
Evanab. In spe-ag of the admintis-
tratls of Governor Magon the Opin-
lam says:
The late provisional *dmii"ttra-
tiom of the United States in Cuba
mae ttaelf famous for the large num-
ber of contracts of all sorts into which
it entered, especially with American
coatiactors, for the construction of
higb-teats, bridges, aqueducts and for
other public improvements. Many of
these contracts were made in the
most Informal, not to say immoral,
manner and gave rise to much scan-
dal and to the complete discredit of
the provisional administration. They
cost the Cuban treasury vast sums,
and it is the general impression that
in many cases the execution of the
works has been very deficient.
No better proof of these assertions
could be found than the following of-
flcila and most startling statement
contained in the minutes of the ses-
sion of President Gomez's cabinet
held on June 1909, which, as usual,

that it has toiled 9nly to the re-3'lt
that some long-eared Jackass goes to
the legislature and exerts himself to
put the newspaper out of business.-

Speaking of hard times, the first
caller we had this week asked us to
change a ten-dollar bill, and the sec-
ond called paid us the compliment of
asking us to change a twenty-dollar
bill. We are glad to see these bills
floating around. but about the only
way we could change a twenty these
days is for the customer to trade
about $19.70 with us. But should you
want to leave some money with us,
we have a friend who has a friend
who knows a gentleman who has a
friend who can change the bills, and
in such cases our firend's friend's ac-
quaintance's friend is always ready
to accommodate those who wish mon-
ey changed.-Lavonia (Ga.) Times.

Thlrteen months ago the Hon. Wil-
liam Jennings Bryan of Lincoln, Neb.,
announced that he had taken com-
mand of the democratic party in
Pennsylvania and that CoL James M.
Guffey was to have nothing more to
do with it. The colonel was placed in
the index expurgatorious and it was
a question whether he ought to be
permitted even to vote the democrat-
ic ticket. It didn't matter that he
had a majority of the delegation to
the Denver convention with him; that
was easily disposed of by the simple
process of having the committee on
credentials throw out a sufficient num-
ber of Guffey men and put Bryan men
in their places. It was done and the
colonel was omitted from his familiar
seat in the national committee from
which he had financed democratic
campaigns and at least one stained
glass window.
Yesterday at Harrisburg, Col. Guf-
fey, restored some time ago to the na-
tional committee by the state commit-
tee, regardless of Mr. Bryan's views
on the subject, ran the democratic
state convention as easily as if there
never had been a big wind from out
of Nebraska or if Bryan had not said
that there wasn't room for him in the
democratic party. Notwithstanding
Bryan, the colonel's grip on the dem-
ocracy of Pennsylvania wasn't loos-
ened for a minute and the convention
of the party met at the state capital
for no other purpose than to ratify
the program which he had prepared
for It.
The story of the ratification will be
found in our news columns and in the
news columns of every daily paper In
the United States, Including those
published at Lincoln, Neb. It won't
be necessary to send marked copies to
Mr. Bryan, for he will have word of
all that has happened.-Pittsburg
(Pa.) Times-Herald.


Unnder an act passed by the last
legislature, which has just gone ins)
effect, railroads are notifying news-
papers with which they have advertis-
ing contracts, on the basis of an '.x-
change of transportation therefrr,
that such contracts will have to be
cancelled, says the. Tampa Tribun-.
The result will be that the railroads
will greatly reduce their advertisin-.g,
in Florida papers and the loss wil1
fall heaviest on the small weekly pa-
pers, which cannot obtain such ad-
vertising on a casE basis.
So far as the large papers are con-
cerned, the exchange proposition was
merely a matter of convenience, but,
with the smaller ones, it will mean a
total of business in this particular.
Whenever some smart fellow, who
happens to be elected a member of
the legislature, starts in to "reform'
things, he generally succeeds in im-
posing an unnecessary burden oni
those least able to bear it, and then
flatters himself that he has "done
something for the people."
This bit of legislation lacked the
merits of a blow to the free pass evil,
because there have been no newspa-
per free passes in the state for sev-
eral years. The system which this
law stops simply caused the railroads
to be a bit more liberal in their ad
vertising, because they could pay fer
the same in transportation. Now they
will have to pay cash. and they will
reduce their advertising, it is believ-
ed, fully one-half.
The loss falls on the country news-
paper, which struggles along in an ef-
fort to build up its town and county,
and which, all too frequently, find'

ville during the month of November.
Senator Fletcher is president of said
body, and it was. through a sugges-
tion from him that 'the invitation to
visit Jacksonville was given the pres-
ident. It is hoped that he will accept
it, and it is believed that he will.
President Cleveland and President
Roosevelt both visited Jacksonville,
and both were delighted with their
trips to this progressive Florida city.
If President Taft accepts the invita-
tion many Floridians will go to Jack-
sonville to see him.

If President Taft had veto-.I the
Payne-Aldrich bill and had visite I
Jacksonville he would have been lion-
ized. It is a matter of indiffererite
now whether he comes or not. It
looks like Taft had r.:b her be ea-y-
going than strenuous for the rirat. If
Roosevelt hb.d been opposed to the
tariff he would have vetoed it, come
weal, come woe. And tl-at w:th all
his other failings gave to Roise'eit

Some time ago this paper called
attention to the prosperity that is
overtaking so many Florida editors,
and in doing so omitted to mention

gently had a big fuss wth another
'neighbor, not because his chickens in-
vaded his garden and played havoc'
with it, but because his roosters had
the bad habit of crowing in the early
morning hours and disturbing the
slumbers of himself and his board-
ers. So, one morning about four
o'clock, in a fit of exasperation, he
dresses himself hurriedly and goes
over to his neighbor's, rings the door
bell vigorously and rudely awakens
him from his slumbers, and because
the man with the roosters resents be-
ing awakened at such an unseemly
hour and for such a purpose, the man
with the unstrung nerves assaults him
with foul language, and in his anger
breaks the glass door to his handsome
home. The distinguished dispenser
of the law holds that the keeping of
crowing roosters is an offense and a
Justification for an assault with words
and even to the rude awakening at
the hour of four in the morning, but
is not justification enough for the
breaking of a glass door!
Since Peter betrayed Christ, and
perhaps a long time before that time,
roosters contracted the crowing hab-
it, and especially so, along about the
midnight and daylight hours, but
since chicken pillau, chicken pie,
smothered chicken, stewed chicken
and fried chicken have appealed so
strongly to men who have an appe-
tite to gratify, we did not know that it
was an offense to raise chickens in
city, town or country! We have it
from the bench now, however, that it
is an offense to raise chickens, and if
roosters crow it is justification
enough to assault with words, but not
Justification enough for an offended
neighbor to break a glass door.
We are glad that there are judicial
limitations to the lengths an offended
neighbor may go.
Will some scientist teach roosters
not to crow!

The letter is written from Montic1l-

Mr. Lamar says:
"I read the description of your Pao,

During the year 1908, the Asm
and .electric railroads of the United
States purchased more than 112,000,-
000 crossties, costing at the point of
purchase over $56,000,000, an average
of 50 cents per tie. This was some
40,000,000 ties less than the quantity
purchased in 1907, when the total was
approximatdy 153,000,000, the high-
est ever recorded. The decreased pur-
chases in 1907 were chiefly due to the
business depression which affected ev-
ery line of industry. In 1908 only 7,-
431,000 crossties were reported as pur-
chased for new track, as against 23,-
557,000 in 1907. Of the total number
of ties purchased for all purposes, the
steam roads took approximately 94
per cent., leaving about 6 per cent.
for the electric roads.
It is interesting to note the wide
range of woods used for the crossties.
The oak ties amounted to more than
48,000,000, or 43 per cent. of the total
quantity purchased. Next to those
ranked the southern yellow pines.
with 1,500,000, or 19 per cent. of the
total. Cedar and chestnut supplied
more than 8.000,000 ties each, and the
Douglass fir nearly as much. About
4,000,000 tamarack ties were purchas-
ed, nearly ?,500,000 cypress ties, and,
in round numbers, 3,000,000 each of
western pine and hemlock. Redwood,
white pine, longpole, pine, gum, beech,
spruce and several other woods were.
used in smaller quantities.

ive Game in Which Oppment
Were Sanked
From Tuesday's Daily:
It was not generally known that the
Ocala team was to entertain the team
from Waldo yesterday aftermno
which fact and the threatening weath-
er kept the usual large crowd from
the baseball park.
During almost the entire game a
drizsling rain was falling, which made
the ball hard to handle, especially by
the pitchers. Mr. Prewitt is a good
pitcher, and deserves all the favora-
ble comment he has been receiving.
With good support behind him yester-
day the locals would not have been
able to circle the bases seven times.
Several of the hits made by the Ocala
boys would have been easily handled
by a little faster infield.
The locals were not in danger of be-
ing scored on until the ninth inning,
when Waldo had two men on bases
with none out. By good work the vis-
itors were retired without a run, on a
foul fly, a strike out and an out at
Ocala scored twice in the first in-
ning on a base on balls to Dick Dodge,
a sacrifice by Dodge, W., an error by
Triest and hits by Danoldson and Jew-
ett. They tallied two more in the
fourth on the squeeze play, Izlar and
Harris scoring and Richard Dodge
handling the willow. The same
squeeze added another in the filth,
worked by Danoldson and Jewett. It
was attempted in two other innings,
but the batter each time hit into a

double play.

From Wedresday's Daily:
Yesterday morning, about 9:15
o'clock, one of the street hacks had
a very exciting runaway, which start-
evl in front of the Ocala House. The
I'crses in some way became frightea-

postoffice. They had not gone far be

for a short distance and pulled :he
carriage over him. He then turned
around and started back up the stree:z.

was confronted with a wagon, but be-

Times have changed, however, and
many descendants of these pioneers
have changed the cry to "On to

the advantages of the Paradise of

Among the visitors in the city at

who will visit various points in this

cific coast. Mr. Gallotte represents
seven Seattle families, who will move
to south Florida during the coming
winter, and his mission is to select
a home for the small but desirable

One of the most interesting politi-

The contest has been exceedingly

was but little interest and the vote
cast was particularly light.
Judge Mann had the support r the

strong appeal for the support of the
prohibition element, but it can hard-

Very few eastern people, eompa -
tively, know that the Irgest olive
ranch in the world is located with
25 miles of Los Angeles, VaL
This wonderful orchard, utuated at
Sylmar, is ten miles larger than the
biggest olive ranch in Spain. There
are over 120,000 olive-bearing trees,
and they average 50 pounds of olives
to the tree. The Sylmar ranch con-
sists of 12,000 acres, and each acre
contains 110 trees, which produce
2000 gallons of olives each season.
This quantity of fruit makes 250 gal-
lons of pure olive oil-valued at $2
per gallon-thus equaling $500 per
acre profit.
The olive wood is highly prized by
cabinet makers, as it is very hard and
takes a high polish. The Italian con-
siders an olive orchard as a perpet-
ual source of wealth, as the older it
grows the more valuable it becomes.
The trees are supposed to live about
4000 years, under favorable condi-
tions. There are some olive trees
now on the Mount of Olives, in Pales-
tine, which are computed to be not
less than 3000 years old.
The olive industry has been grow-
ing steadily in California since its
first introduction by the early Span-
ish mission fathehrs.-Scientfie


The whole tariff discussion has
been unspeakably sickening. Time
was when the American people
thought they were doing a man honor
by sending him to congress. If they
still retain that superstition it is an-
other evidence of the triumph of rope
over experience. From the start of
the tariff debates to their present
dragging finish it has been a game of
swap and swindle. The first consid-
eration has been to -get the greatest:
possible loot for the favored "inter-
ests," the next to keep the greatest
possible number of votes in line for
the complaisant congressmen; and
never yet have the interests of the
people, or the plain call of decency
received official attention in the tus-
sle. There have been exception'-
brilliant exceptions--the most con-
stant and brilliant of them being Sen
ator Gore of Oklahoma. But no
fraud yet proposed has lacked a ma-
jority when the test came, and no de-
cent proposition has been able to do
better than rank as a bad second In
a fore-doomed race.
And the utter shameelsuness .
some representatives of the "inter-
ests" is appalling.-Denver News.


Congress has adjourned and the

Hon. W. H. Milton of Marianna,
president of the board of managers
of the state reform school, says there
has been much unjust criticism of the
school, which pressure of other busi-

have been placed out this year on
probation, reports from whom have
almost invariably been favorable.

"I believe that a conference of rep-
resentatives of forest schools and uni-
arsities and colleges in which for-
estry i taught might be made of gen-
eral value to the general progress of
mrestry Ina the United States, as well
as to the int-lutle-a which teach for-
etry. and to the forest service, which
employs so many of their graduates,
and which is vitally Interested In the

be present or to send a delegate to a
conference of this kind, which, with
the coacurreace of the Institutions
concerned, will be held in Washing-
tea December 0-31. 1,."

Heaven help the man who imagines
he can dodge enemies by trying to
plese everybody. If such an individ-
ual ever succeed, we should be glad
to it-not that we believe in a man
goilg through the world trying to find
beams to knock and thump his poor
head against, disputing every man's
opinion, aghting and elbowing and
crowding all who differ with him.
That again is another extreme. Other
people have a right to their opinion,
so have you; don't fall into the error
of supposing they will respect you
less for maintaining it, or respect you
more for turning your coat every day
to match the color of theirs. Wear
your own color, in spite of wind or
weather, storm or sunshine. It costs
the vacillating and Irresolute ten.
times the trouble to wind. shuffle and
twist, than it does honest, manly in-
dependence to stand its ground.-

to get these individual cups when

For Making Slight Remarks About
His Mother-Howe Will

Terre Havte. Ind., Aug. 6.-Austin
Miller, 19 years old, shot and wound-
ed Lon Howe, a night watchman, at
Winona, last night, for making re-
marks derogatory to his mother.
The shooting of Howe followed al-
leged derogatory remarks made con-
cerning Miller's mother. Miller fol-
lowed Howe to Winona Park last
night, and with drawn pistol ordered
the watchman to throw up his hands.
Howe refused to do as ordered and
thrust his hands into his pockets and
laughed. Miller was under the Im-
pression Howe meant to draw a gun,
it is claimed, and fired four shots, all
of which took effect. Howe fell r.
the second shot was fired, and two
more bullets were discharged at the
prostrate man. Miller then forced
Howe to sign a denial of the alleged
slander and then carried the wounded
man to his home, half a mile away
from the scene of the shooting, and
called the Park physician.
Miller had been spending the win-
ter months at Gainesville, Fla., where
his paermts had a cottage. The young
man is a student at the University of
Virginia, where he is taking a law
course. He always has shown pro-
nounced affection for his mother, and
during his younger school days Is
said to have had much trouble with
schoolmates because of his custom of
whipping every boy who spoke Ill of
a girl.
Miller ha- surrendered to the iu-
thoritles. Howe will recover.
Mr. Miller has visited Ocala a num-
ber of times, as the guest of Mr.
James Taylor.

Ida summer normal at Gainesville, be-
Ing deeply sensible of the advantages
afforded by the establishment of sum-

The Payne bill increases the duties
on the following articles of wearing
Underwear, cotton hosiery, silk hos-
iery, cotton gloves (see conference
amendment to paragraph 323), cotton
cloth for skirts, dresses, etc., linens,
silks of all kinds, laces, embroideries,
and for those who can still buy them
the duties are increased on watches.
The only item of wearing apparel
I find reduced is shoes which, for men
at least, are all made in this country,
so that there will be no reduction ib
price, as none are imported.
The president's great kid-glove vic-
tory amounts, not to any reduction,
but to keeping the present duties
where they are (although cotton
gloves are outrageously advanced in
paragraph 326). A great industry in
men's kid gloves was built up under
the Dingley duties, but there are no
reductions in these in spite of the
fact that we pay $2 for a pair of
gloves that can be bought in London
at 70 cents retail.
The bill is a substantial increase in
duties on the necessaries of life, and
study it as I will I can reach no ether
conclusion. The people have been
swindled.-Consumer, in the New

Wellborn, a little town in Florida,!

cash. It means, among other things,
that Florida has no need to depend on
Tennessee and Illinois and Indiana
for eggs-they can be produced at
home. And if Florida can do so well,
Georgia can match the trick. We

Sunday morning at Grady hcaptial.
Mr. Williamson's son, Ear!. who
had been with him in Atlanta, had
returned to Daytona but lit'*e more
than a week before, but Thursday of
last week Mrs. Willlamson received a
telegram stating that he was we-ious-
ly ill, and a, once Joined kim snd was
with him wben the end came.
The remains were brought from At-

ers. Mr. Williamson carried a $2000
insurance policy in this order. With
Mrs. Williamson and the :a.-m-
bers of the family, was her sister,
Mrs. M. A. Norwood. of Ocala.
Mr. Williamson, who was a genial,
warm-hearted man and made friends
readily, wa? born March 27, 1862, at
Cincinnati, Ohio. When he was one
year old his parents moved to Milford.
where he lived until coming to Day-
tona with his brother. W. G. William-
son, in 1885 He was married in this
city in 188?S to Miss Agnes F. Whit-

in 1S90. where he resided with his
family until about eight years ago.
Mr. Williamson is survived by a
wife and four children. Bertha A.,

News from Norway is to the effect
that Walter Wellman, who proposes
to do what Andree failed to do, i. e.,
fly in his balloon to the north pole
and return, is almost ready for the
trip. Wellman is still as confident
as ever that he will make the round
trip and succeed in locating the mag-
netic pole.

one of the most popular excursions of
the season. See Henry Raysor.

Capt. J. B. Martin of Oklawahs sta-
tion was in town yesterday and was
bragging on Florida as a farming
country. He says that without any
extra effort he has made over twenty-
five hundred bushels of corn this sea-
son with two mules and one negr) la-
borer. Next year he promises to
gather three thousand bushels with
no additional force.

We had quite a number of calls
yesterday for copies of the Ocala Ban-
ner, containing the account of the ex-
ecution of Albert Smith. Is it not
wonderful how much interest is man-
ifested in executions. There seems
to be a morbid curiosity existing in
the breast of most persons that is
hard to gratify.

Mr. and Mrs. Fred W. Booth enter-
tained with a reception last Friday
night in honor of their sister, Miss
Reece, who is visiting here from
Ocala. In addition to the fruit punch
which was served throughout the
evening, an ice course of cream and
cake was enjoyed by the merry crowd
of happy young people. Each one
present declare Miss Reece a most
lovable young lady and predict that
her friends and admirers in Clearwa-
ter will be numerous.-Clearwater

Mr. W. P. Moorman, who lives
across the Oklawaha river, was in
town yesterday and said to a repre-
sentative of this paper that he had
been living in Florida for fifty-three
years and never needed a mosquito
net until this year, and double nets
were hardly thick enough to keep
them out this year. The same com-
plaints reach us from every quarter.
Has the war the scientist declared
against the mosquito and the house-
fly stimulated them to renewed activ-
ity, and are they bidding defiance to
their puny efforts to exterminate

Indications are that the slIpments
of lumber out of Tampa this
month will break all previous records.
Practically speaking, over 5,000,0M
feet of lumber is scheduled for ship-
ment now. Of these shipments the
Aripeka sawmills of Fivay will lead,
they having charters and cargo space
made and engaged for August ship-
ments of 3,500,000 feet, destined for
New York and Boston. Most of this
lumber will go forward by sailing ves-
sels, some of the New York shipments
going forward via the Mallory Line.
In addition to this. the Dowling Lum-
ber and Export Company will send
out two cargoes aggregating 500,000
feet to Cuba, while the Gillett Lum-
ber and Transportation Company
should load out for the same island
about 750,000 feet. Central American
schooners will be in evidence for
some two or three small cargoes alse.

A letter from Mr. F. Stant Perrin
says that hi was celebrating his 58th
birthday by writing to the Ocala Ban-
ner. although he feels like a thirty-
year-old boy. He will be pleasantly
remembered as having settled at
Stanton and gave that place its name
in honor of his uncle, a lawyer of dis-
tinction and a gentleman of much cul-
ture and refinement. Mr. Perrin is
now in the automobile business at
261-265 Walton avenue, New York.
corner of 1?Sth street. He was for a
number of years a member of our
board of county commissioners and
has a soul in him as big as himself.
The reason he is not mayor of New
York City is because he has cut poli-
tics out, ro)t and branch. If he were
mayor of that city Ocala would move
up there in a bunch. We hope that
Mr. Pernin will live to celebrate
many another birthday and that he
will always feel like a thirty-year-old.

In spite o? everything, it looks like
the senatorial campaign is going to
be thrust upon the people. Claude
L'Engle, state at large, and ex-Stna-
tor Blount of Escambia county, have
both announced, and it is also cer-
tain that Senator Tallaforro will
stand for re-election, and equally cer-
tain that Senator Taliaferro will
be a candidate. Thus you have the
ticket, so step up, look pleasant and
take your choice. Even at this stage
of the game the Record is willing to
wager that at least three of the above
named candidates are beaten.-Mana-
tee Record.

Morton Fleming, the colored letter
carrier, who was arrested lasat week,
charged with forging endorsements
to notes, was brought before Judge
Cooper yesterday for a hearing. He
waived examination and was held for
circuit court, his bond being placed
at $500. The alleged offense is a se-
rious one and the penalty is very
heavy, the maximum sentence being
twenty years in the penitentiary.-

Mr. and Mrs. E. 0. Painter will
soon leave Jacksonville for a tour of
Canada in Mr. Painter's fine touring

who has grown rich in Florida. but his
paper, the Florida Agriculturist, has
not been such an aid to his wealth as
his fertilizer factory. He started in
an extremely modest way in a little
room no larger than 15x20. He now
owns his square acres in buildings

in a few years we can make the same

There's rejoicing in Fedora. Tenn.

A Gainesville special to the Times-
Union says that it is currently rumor-
ed in that city that the railroad jrop-
erty known as the Tampa and Jack-
sonville railway, passed into the
hands of new owners on Wednesday.
That is, the brokerage firm of F. J.
L4sman & Co., of New York, assumed
control, having purchased a controll-
ing interest' in the common stock pre-
viously held by Florida stockholders
and local interests. This firm con-
trols several railroads over the coun-
try known as the Lisman Lines, and
are well known as experienced rail-
road men.
It is understood that the new own-
ers will immediately commence im-
proving the property, and in the near
future commence on the extension
work, which has been under contem-
plation for some time. It is further
understood that the excellent show-
ing made by its general superintend-
ent, A. L. Glass, during the past year,
is responsible for the sale,*the Tam-
pa and Jacksonville railway having
made over $90,000 last year gross and
saved over $20,000 in operation over
the previous management of the prop-
erty, thereby bringing the property
before financial interests that result-
ed in its present change.
The annual meeting will be seld
some time this montb, when the poli-
cy of the new management will be
promulgated and its new organiza-
tion made effective.
