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.

has been in Florida a little over four
years and at the time of his arrival
here the average farmer was import-

and most of his hay for his stock. To-
day he is growing, as a rule, his beg-

corn anl oats. This is progressive
Florida, and all within four years.
Florida has always produced the
Ifnest of citrus fruits, but she has al-
ways been weak on self-support ma-
terials, and as a result the state has
honght nearly as much food products
as she has sold in her other farm
and fruit products. However, as
above stated, beautiful Florida has
awakened to the fact that there is
nothing that she cannot grow, except
wheat. Oats is one of the finest pro-
ductive crops in the state; corn iF al-

To the Editor Ocala Banner:
The writer of these lines came to
Candler about ten years ago. It is
D interesting to contrast conditions as
they existed then with those that
prevail now. Ten years ago there
was not a team of two horses or
mules here, nor a two-horse wagon.
Now many of our citizens have two
or three horses or mules, and many
have two-horse wagons. There was
not a riding plow, harrow nor cultiva-
tor in the community. Now we have
all of them. The agricultural imple-
ments then were for the most part the
cheapest kind, the "Boy Dixie" plow,
cutting a 6-inch furrow, the most comn-
Suon plow. Now we have diic plows,
large two-horse plows and sulky
SI plows, one a 16-inch. Then there was
Srt a mowing machine nor a horse-
rake in all this section. Now both
are common. Ten years ago you
could buy cleared land at $5 to $10
per acre, which, with some improve-
ment, today is worth $25 per acre.
Then, if corn was raised at all, a
crop of eight or ten bushels per acre
was all that was expected. Now we
have a large acreage of corn planted,
yielding from 20 to 25 bushAls to the

beginning to realize that improved
stock is less pestiferous and more
profitable. Then there was not a rod
of good hog fence in this community.
Now we have about twenty miles of
good wire hog fence. Then there was
no supply of fruit whatever. Now we
have oranges, peaches, tomatoes, wa-
termelons, etc. Then there was not
a dollar's worth of produce shipped
from here during the year. Now, the
yearly shipment of sweet potatoes, to-
matoes, okra, oranges, peaches and
watermelons amount to many thous-
ands of dollars. For one dollar's
worth of express matter that left this
station then, there are fifty dollars'
worth now, and the people are plan-
ning still greater and better things
for the future.
It is a pleasure to contemplate
these things, and many more could
be added.
There are some things about Can-
dler that are not so much to our cred-
it, such as the pestiferous flea, and
the filthy condition of our streets, ow-
ing to the large number of hogs that
occupy and pollute them.

We still have an over-supply of rain
and mosquitoes. Farmers are wish-
ing for a little more sunshine, as the
haying season is here and they can-
not save their hay with the present
daily rainfall. And the mosquitoes!
We cannot rest even at noontime out-
side of bars and screens.

When we go to our dinner
To enjoy our food,
Madame "8keeter" is there
With her venomous brood.
Do we seek a cool spot to read Iowa's
Crusade against kissing,
There's a host there before us,.
Wtih their biting and hissing.
We then seek a place
To write to the Banner,
But, alas! we can't pen
Even a "letter to Hannah." I

For United States Senator Spends
Two Days at Home
Claude L'Engle, former editor ol
the Sun, after a brief visit through
west Florida, returns to Tallahassee
'or several days. Mr. L'Engle is very
much encouraged over his candidacy
'or the United States senate. He
aughed when asked what he was go-
ng to do about editorial remarks
made of him in certain newspapers.
H-e said: "Some of the Florida editors
have been trying to make fun of my

campaign, and some have called it a
oke, but just let them read my pam-
)hlet-that's no joke. My turn at
criticiing will come some time, and
'11 surely make things warm for
somebody. I know all of these edi-
ors, and I know just why they write
certain things. I know, too, who it
s that tells them to write. There are
our classes of editors in Florida-
he owned, the controlled, the afraid
nd the free. I know who owns and
controls every one of them, and I am
going to tell it when the time for
walking comes. The free newspapers
will not criticize my campaign, you
mark that."
In speaking of his "buzz wagon,"
.r. L'eBgle said that he would start
rom here in it in October, and cover
he state three times. But before
)ctober he intends covering the lkrge
owns by rail. He has already been
through the west, "the winning of tihe
west," and says that he now intends
o go down into Taliaferro's own ter-
itory.-Tallahassee True Democrat.

'o the Editor Ocala Banner:
Please say to your readers that
apt. Geo. M. Lynch of Gainesville
nd Hon. S. J. Hilburn of Palatka
ave promised to be with na mt RW mn


he There has been some little criticism
ie on the part of our people at the rate
the abutting property owners have to
n, pay for brick paving. They seem to
er think the charge is excessive and
id want the city to pay a larger share.
in Also there has been some objection to
n- the property owner paying a part of
id the intersections at crossings.
In order to discover just what other
Ld cities are doing, City Clerk Boone has
r. secured tabulated figures from sever-
e- al other cities, showing the facts, a
n- few of which we give.
a Ocala-The city pays for the cross-
d ings, but thee property owners pay for
g two-thirds of the street abutting their
property, and the city one-third.
o Jacksonville-The entire expense is
a- divided into three parts, one for city
e and two fo. abutters.
e Pensacola-Abutters pay two-thirds
p and the city one-third of the total
e- Tampa-City pays for intersections
n but abutters pay two-thirds and city
e, one-third of balance.
r. Thus it will be noted that in all of
these cases the cost is much greater
g than in Oriando, where the city pays
i- one-half of all the cost and the abut-
n ters one-fourth each.
'. In some states the property owners
pay all of the expense. This does not
d seem fair, however, as the citizens
n generally do secure a certain benefit
. because of the improvement. But it
d would be manifestly unfair for the
city to bear too great a part of the ex-
- pense, since the tax payer in the out-
, skirts, who has no street at all should
i not be expected to pay equally with
the property owner on the line of the
f brick streets who receive nearly all
the benefit.
On the whole, however, our citizens
a are so well pleased with the paved
s streets that demands are made on ev-
s ery hand to extend them at the dlivid-
y ed cost to citizens.
r Wise property owners have come to
- learn the ln:niense advantages accru-1-
ing from.: u-:;- streets. As th im-
s provements ex:tn.l the demand will
- increase and! the city dads will be puz-
zled to know where to stop.-Orlando

Dear Jake:
Have made several promises to
write something of my trip and shall
now endeavor to do so, but it would
require a better composer to give you
a full description.
On July 3 the folks and myself left
here in special Pullman at 6:20 a. m.,
arriving at Meridian, Miss., at 3 p. m..
where others entered our car, an 1 af
ter being entertained for three hours

by Meridian Elks, our car was at-
tached to a special train consisting ot
seven Pullman, two baggage and a
dining car, having 164 passengers
from Tennessee. Alabama, Mississip-
pi and Louisiana. Amid the roar of a
brass band we started upon our long
journey. Within a few minutes we
were notified that the Meridian Elks
had furnished our train with refresh-
ments, free, sufficient to do until \.e
reached Denver, Col. This bee.', li
quors and soft drinks were kept ve'r
busy throughout the entire thirty-day
trip, for Elks all along the i-,m.
would meet our train and present
casks of beer, etc.: that is, at stations
where we stopped only a few min-
utes. At those stops for an hour or
more we were met by Elks who took
us out sight-seeing and entertaining
us at their lodge. We made many
stops for sight-seeing, and took in
quite a number of side trips, all oi
which I shall not attempt to state
We stopped at Dallas and Fort
Worth, Texas and Denver, Col. From
Denver we took the "short" line to
Cripple Creek, the gold mining sec-
tion. 11,600 feet aho, e the rFa level;

.ind very beautiful city; buildiiihu al:

Denver's water comes from the top

rounding to be seen. Our train was
tracked at Long Beach, twenty min-
utes by electric car from Los Ange-
les, where we slept, but took our
meals at Los Angeles. Our car was
tracked near the Virginia Beach ho-
tel, one of I ae finest in the country.
Population of Long Beach, 25,000.
From Los Angeles we made many
side trips-to Saint Catalina Island,
Riverview, Passadena, St. Bonica, St.
Pedro, etc. Our first morning from
Long -Beach to Los Anteles we were
arc ed with our umbrellas, it being

'.Why, n;; we iave no rain during

Los Angele- is a very fine and large
c-i::. Thev claim a temperature of
; in s;in;mm r in 52 in winter. In the
shade ve ftlt cool and wanted our
overcoats; in the sun we wanted
neither coat nor vest. From Los An-
geles, in twenty minutes we could be
by electric car either upon the moun-
tains or upon the seashore. I was
told that a man was frozen to death
within four and a half miles of an or-
ange grove. The streets are very
wide, and the sidewalks in many plac-
es being twenty feet wide. The
streets are paved with asphalt, and
the residential section the most beau-
tiful imaginable. Between the walk
and curbing are hedges of roses and
geraniums, which grew up to the sec-
ond story of the buildings. Think of
rose busbh and geraniums fifteen
feet in height.
We spent six hours in San Francis-
co. Ruins are yet to be seen in ev-

of a snow-capped mountain, seventy- ery direction, though many improve-

five miles dirtant and is considered
the purest water on earth. They
claim sufficient water in their reser-
voir to supply Denver for three years
without adding one drop to their pres-
ent supply. It is said that there is
more gold in the walls of Denver's
butings than there is in the United
States mint, as many buildings wer<
erected from clay and stone from
Cripple Creek prior to the discovery
3f gold.
Our trip through Mississippi and
Texas was the only portion that was
comfortablel. especially through
the Texas desert-some 1800 miles of
prairie; notLing to te seen but the
heavens and earth, which could be
qeen for many miles with the naked
eye. However, irrigation is now be-
ing establisLed and this prairie will
soon be productive; at present noth-
ing there, out occasionally we saw a
cattle ranch with such cows. etc.. Ps
those owned by Chambliss & Co.
At Coloraado Springs we intended
to make Pike's Peak, or "bust." but
when informed we would have to take
the cog-wheel railway at 1 a. mr.. and
return at 8:30 a. m., I respectfully de-
clined, as I could never have stood
the trip, it being an elevation of
more than 14,000 feet, and into the
snow. Those of our party who went
suffered from nose-bleed and after-
wards severe colds. I contented my-
self with. drinking spring water, be-
Ing naturally charged very much like
appolinaris. We were delayed here
eight hours on account of a wreck
with a freight and some special train
going through the gorge. Our tiain
was the fir:t to pass through after
the wreck. Some of the passengers
took snap-shots of the wreck, which
was fearful to see. The trip through
the "royal gcrge" must be seen to be
appreciated. Here a sight-seeing car
was attached to our train, and as we
whirled around the cliffs. and firts at
a great clevtion and then in the val-
ley. with 1te solid rocks upon both
s.,es, many thousand feet high. and
the great cracks in the rocks, caused
one to worded at such engineering
skill and to fear a landslide.
Our first stop of any consequence
in Californi. was at Saint Barnadina.
Here we were met by Elks, with
fruits and flowers for all, and auto-
mobiles and carriages for sight-see-
ing. but ou- train received orders to
move on, and our stay there was cut
short. We then stopped at Pasa de
Robles, the hot spring of Califorcia;

ments have been made since the dis-
astrous earthquake. We were enter-
tained there by the Fireman's Pund
Insurance Company, taking us auto-
ing to all points of interest. Winter
clothing and my overcoat were very
comfortable. I was greatly disap-
pointed with the size, push, etc., of
San Francisco. Saloons open Sun-
days; workmen at work building
houses, etc., on Sundays. All resi-
dences there are frame and not pret-
ty. Prom here we crossed the ferry
to Oakland; about 200,000 population
and quite a nice city; nothing there
worthy of mention, being similar to
all cities of its size. From there we
went to Portland, Oregon, one of the
most beautiful cities I have ever seen.
Flowers more gorgeous than in Cali-
fornia. Portland is called the "Rose
City." We were met by the Elks,
who had chartered enough sight-see-
ing cars to seat each of our party,
and we were shown the entire city;
then taken to the lodge room and en
tertained with refreshments, muskie
and dancing. The Portland lodge i?
the second wealthiest in existence.
the Brooklyn, N. Y., lodge being first.
Here we saw timber lands and saw-
mills. Thing of one log containing
from 20,000 to 30,000 meet of lumber.
From Portland we landed in Seat-
tle, where we spent three days, being
splendidly entertained by Ben Moy-
ses, owner of the Independent brew-
ery, and a cousin of my wife's fclks.
We spent only a half day at the ex-
position, which was very nice, but
"having seen enough expositions we
lost no time there, but devoted out
time to sight-seeing. Seattle i, a
very fine city, with better prospects
than any other city visited. It is sure
to be headquarters for the Alaska
country, wl"ch is rapidly coming to
the fr-nt. Stores immense: banks
having larg? deposits and everyone
on the go in a rush. Took a ship and
went over to Tacoma, also a very fine
city; rode all over Tacoma.
From Seattle we went to Van Cou-
ver, B. C.. a fine and interesting city.
Asked ,ne of the natives what time
it was ani he told me it was 13
o'clock. They do not reckon a. m..
and p. in.. but from 12 to 24 o'clock.
From there we went to Glacier and
Boutf. Canada. which is a part of the
Canadian national park, half again
as large as Yellowstone. At Glacier

back home.
I forgot to mention that we spent
one day in Salt Lake City, Utah, tak-
ing it in thoroughly. We did not
change cars upon our entire trip un-
til disbanding at Chicago. Our trunk
was so that we could enter it at any
time, and our diner being chartered
f ,r the entire trip, we, of course, ex-
perienced no trouble in being fed. All
passengers were as one big family,
and we all tad the time of our lives.
We had but two accidents. One man
had a finge: mashed off between the
cars and one fell out of an upper
berth, breaking his arm, but both of
them made the entire trip, as if noth-
ing had happened. A number would
get off the train when stopping for
water or orders and would get left,
but would catch the next special, eithb
er from North Carolina or New York
and return, when their train would
catch up with ours. I mailed B. C.
Webb a paper, giving account of elec-
tions and amusements at Los Ange-
les. The engines out there all burn

We made the trip through the oil
producing section of California, and
it seems to me that God has given al-
most everything to that country. In
going around the mountains I could
wave my hand to passengers in three
cars above ours. The "Great Divide"
is also worthy of mention, where the
two rivers meet, one flowing to the
Atlantic and the other to the Pacific.
Our train was also delayed by flood
in Colorado, the water coming in tor-
rents, rushing wildly, and timbers
floating across the track, as if all
would be washed away, but in two or

Fronem Dor. Wiley
Dr. Wiley, chemist, at the head of
S t- pure food department of the gov-
eramet, is a little harder on the whis-
by question than anyone of whom
we have recently heard-not on the
trSde, but on the staff Itself. If he is
earrect, the whiskey makers, who
know the secrets of the trade, are
r murderers wholesale. 'He admits that
there is some pure whiskey sold, but
the amount ins i-igpifleant compared
to the millions of gallons that are poi-
son. Dr. Wiley is reported as saying:
"Althtonhg I never drank whiskey, I
know for a fact that very little real
whiskey Is sold. Lots of men line up
In front of a bar and spend valuable
drinking time in arguing about the
diferet brands of poison that the
ma in white puts upon the bar. It
Is generally a waste of time, for I
would say, unoicially, that about 98
per cent of the stuff is not whiskey.
That is why I am glad to have whip-
ped the whiskey people out in Cincin-
watL Iots of liquid that has no claim
to the name, whiskey, has been sold."
The majority of persons know little
or nothing about chemistry, and if
they did, have not at hand facilities
for analysis. As for those who drink.
Kt may be said they care nothing
about the quality-the hotter the stuff
the better it pleases. The fact that It
kils does not bother them. This
esds us to say again: If the lives of
the people are worth saving, while
r the board of health is punishing poor
adl ea who add water to their
milk, they would do well to look after
lordly salmon keepers who daily pour
down their customers' throats stuff
M per cent. of which is adulterated.
That would ruin the pet business, for
If conamed strictly to pur liquor: 50
per ast of the sellers would be com-
pelled to quit They would not be
able to buy pure whiskey.-New Or-

The Result of Yesterday's Double
Header Was Two Pretty Games

The locals won the first game and
lost the second. After the disappoint-
ment of Thursday afternoon, on ac-
count of the usual rain, the Ocala
boys arranged to play two games on
Friday afternoon.
The first game was called at 2:40,
with only a small crowd in attend-
ance, but before the game was over a
large crowd made its appearance.
Brown was in the box for the locals
in the first game, and seemed to have
the opposing batsmen at his mer y at
all times. The score shows that two
hits were made off his delivery, but
these were only scratch hits. How-
ever, they were hits or errors, and
there was no one to whom the errors
should be given. "Happy Man" Dil-
lon also pitched well, but the locals
found him for seven safeties.
, Neither team scored until the
fourth inning, when Waller made the
only run of the game. After Donald-
son was retired on a fly to left field,
Waller took first via the "big four"
route, and went to second on Harris'
single. Waller and Harris then stole
third and second. Dillon made a balk
and the runners advanced a base
each, Waller tallying.
Both teams had chances to score
later, but no runs were forthcoming.
Palatka had two on bases in the sec-
ond, sixth and eighth innings, with
only one out, but the necessary hits
could not be made. In the sixth in-
ning Ocala had the bases full, with
none out, but the side was retired
without further runs.
After an intermission of ten min-
utes, the second game was begun. In
this game the absolute need of the
fielders playing deep against a heavy
hitting team was very apparent. Hits
driven over left field and center field
were good for two bases each. Had
not these fielders been playing close
in, these two hits by Smith would
have been easy outs. Two runs were
scored by Palatka on Smith's second
two-bagger. The same was true in
the Gainesville game In Ocala. The
balls went over Ocala's fielders be-
cause they played lu too close.
No runs were counted until the
fourth inning, when Palatka scored
twice. Calhoun was safe at first on
Bennett's error. Collins fanned. Dil-
lon hit over third base safely. Then
came Smith with his second two-bag-
ger, scoring Calhoun and Dillon.
Ocala tallied in the sixth inning.
Waller hit to left field for two bases.
Harris sacrificed him to third, from
which base he scored on Calhoun's
error in handling Bennett's hit to
Ocala won the first game, one to
nothing, and Palatka took the second
game, *wo to one. It is a pleasure to
say that the Palatka boys are not
kickers, at least not in Ocala, and that
they conduct themselves in a quiet,
gentlemanly manner, both on and off

the baseball field.

perts all over this country have pro-
nounced the verdict guilty. Whereas
the fly was once considered a scav-
enger sent in hot weather to eat up
the germs that abound, it is now con-
sidered a filthy insect. Bred in ma-
nure, it drinks from cess-pools and
dines in privy-vaults. It eats the spu-
tum on the sidewalk and revels in the
garbage-pall. It hovers over the ba-
by's diaper and is greedy for the
dressings from a discharging wound.
It Is a germ-carrier. It brings typhoid
fever, diarrhoea, dysentery and tuber-
culosis to the very gateway of the hu-
man body. After its repast of filth it
crawls over your freshly-frosted cake,
swims in your lemonade, cleans its
feet on the bread bought in a sealed
paper bag. Direct from the neighbor-
ing privy, it crawls over the sweet
lips of you' sleeping baby or settles
on the sterilized nipple of its nursing-
bottle. The fly that you fish out of
your baby's milk, milk for which you
have paid fifteen cents a quart, may
have been feeding on the excre-nent
of a patient recovering from diar-
rhoea or typhoid fever. The flies on
the fruit you buy at that street corner
for your children may have last fed
on the sputum of a consumptive. As
many as six million, six hundred
thousand bacteria have been found on
a single fly. Yet the house-fly is tol-
erated everywhere.
Milk and hot weather are blamed
for the great number of infant deaths
from diarrhoea or "summer com-
plaint." A careful study of the sea-
sonal prevalence of flies by means of
daily count-, from fly cages made in
different parts of New York City by
the Merchants' Association shows
that flies were active in large raum-
bers only in the comparatively few
hot weeks in summer, while the
health certificates showed that these
were the very weeks when an abnor-
mal number of cases of typhoid fever
and diarrhoea were contracted. These
diseases rose with the rise in the
prevalence of flies and fell with the
decrease in the numbers of flies trap-
ped. When we consider one fly, lay-
ing one hundred and twenty eggs at
a time, will have a progeny of sextil.
lions at the end of the season, tn-
that milk is the best germ-culture
known, it is easy to see the fly's part
in spreading intestinal diseases.
Screen all doors and windows as
soon as the fly-season sets in, espe-
cially the kitchen, dining-room and
nursery. Wire netting is more ser-
viceable, but cotton netting, at three
cents a square yard keeps the flies
out. Keep flies away from your baby.
Keep flies ofr your food and milk. Do
not buy fruit exposed for sale un-
screened. Don't forget that the
breeding-place of flies is in near-by
filth. It may be behind the door, un-
der the table, or in the cuspidor. If
there is a nuisance in the neighbor-
hood, report it at once to the health
department and demand its abate-

The third and fourth class postmas- %
terms of the state met in the court
house yesterday afternoon, to tbe
number of about twenty-five and per- .
fected an ciganization. A splendid ,
program has been arranged for this
meeting and many excellent papers
will be read.

Mr. W. .1. Sheridan. the expect' ce- i
ment worker, who has been with the
Woodmar Sand and Stone Company
for the past year. or two, is now unit-
ed with th- company, Mr. Moorhead
and Mr. Potter having sold out. We
call attention to their advertisement
elsewhere in this issue. This com-
pany's work is known in Ocala, and
speaks for itself.

It is hoped that Ocala will send a
delegation te Evinston on August
25th. which iv the occasion of the lay-
ing of the corner stone of the Meth-
odist Episcopal church, south, at that
place. It will be seen from a commu-
nication printed elsewhere that Hon.
Sam J. Hilrurn of Palatha and Capt.
George M. Lyndh. of Gainesville will
be present and deliver orations. Both
are very eloquent speakers.

A letter from Dr. R. R. Snowvden.
who is now at Los Angeles. Cal.. says
that be has seen more Ocala people
in his city during the past month
than he saw while he was in Lakeland
in the same length of time. Dr. Snow-
den will be at the Seattle Exposition
for the next thirty days. and if during
that period any Ocala people visit it
he wants them to hunt him up. He
will be located at the Nitrate Agen-
cies Company. His friends will be
glad to know that he is doing well.

Mr. Walseman, the staff corres-
pondent of the New York Packer. has
declared his intention of becoming a
citizen of Ocala. and will make his
headquarters in this city. He is not
only an exceedingly clever writer, but
is an excellent gentleman, and will be
& valuable acquisition to our citizen-
ship. He is head over heels in love
with Florida and thinks it is unex-
celled in its attractions and its pos-
sibilities are almost limitless. We ex-
tend to Mr. Walseman a warm and
generous welcome.

Mr. Carter H. Dame, the most prom-
inent Woodman of the World in Flor-
ida. has beer desperately sick in one
of the sanitariums in Jacksonville.
but is now at home in this city and is
well on the way to recovery. He had
taken Mrs. Dame up intm the moun-
tains of Georgia. Her health had
been bad and she immediately im-
proved and finally got thoroughly
well. but after being there three
weeks Mr. Dame was taken sick. but
thought that be was able to return
home. but when he got to Jackson-
ville he was so sick he had to be ta-
ken from the train and carried to the
kitaium. His friends will be glad
to know that he is now gaining
strength very rapidly and will soon
be hbmelf agaie.

Smith Pitched Excellent Game and
Blanked Ocala Without a Hit

From Tuesday's Daily:
The locals had one bad inning yes-
terday afternoon, the fourth, in which
Orlando won the game by a score of
four to nothing. There was the same
trouble in this game as in the Gaines-
ville and Palatka games, the local
fielders played in too close when the
heavy batters were up.
In the fourth inning, Red Donald-
son's brother, the home-run hitter.
was first at the bat for Orlando.
Ocala's fielders were playing close in.
Donaldson picked out a nice one and
hit it over Harris' head, good for two
base. Barnett hit to Brown, who
tried to catch Donaldson at third, but
was a little late. Barnett then stole
second, and both runners scored
when McCormick singled past short.
Harris tried to catch Barnett at the
plate, but his throw was slow. Mc-
Cormick went to second on his throw
in. Smith was passed to first on four
bad balls, and Limerick went the
same route. With the bases full and
none out, Glass hit to third, which got
by Dick Dodge, McCormick and
Smith scoring. Bennett hit to right
which Izlar caught and doubled Lim-
erick at the plate. Hawes out on a
foul fly to Dick Dodge.
The fourth was the only inning in
which runs were made, but Orlando
made more than enough in that in-
ning to win several games if the I.,-
cals do not make any runs.

manner of bis making good as a gov

turpentine ia the United States, thus
supplying a fountain of youth in pre-
serving the life of the buildings in the

Albert Gilchrist is making good as
a governor. He is holding up the dig-

manner, and is presenting her possi-

much attention.
But greater than all, he Is not mak-
ing the office a lever for the build-
ing up of a political machine. He is
not an uncompromising partisan.
He has made good the prediction of
this paper that the people of Florida
would find in him a man without
guile or bitterness. His administra-
tion has been. and will continue ta be.
clean. He has shown himself a most
lovable man. and will go out of office
possessing a higher esteem of the peo-

He has shown that to be too "savi-

When did- the United States begin
the practice of forestry? Few persons
can answer this question correctly.
Most people are of the opinion that
the beginning of forestry in this coun-
try was of very recent origin, and that
the first step in that direction was ta-
ken among the mountains of the far
west. Neither fact is correct.
While Washington was serving his
first term as president of the United

States, a recommendation came t
e him tha. th e government ought to bu
live oak isiands on the coast of Geo
d gia to make sure of a supply of shi
e timber for war vessels. The idea a]
e pears to have originated with Joshu
1 Humphreys, whose official title wa
"Conductor of the United States N,
e vy." although ab,>ut the only nav'
g then existing was made up of si
h ships on paper, and not one stick o
t timber to build them had yet bee
r cut. The vessels were designed t
n fight the North American pirates.
9 Five years after the recommend
. tion was made congress appropriate
s money to buy live oak land. Growe
a and Blackbeard islands, on the coas
. of Georgia were bought for $22,501
They contained 1950 acres.
Louisiana was bought soon afte
- and in 1817 the six islands, of 19,00
e acres, and containing 37,000 live ,al
s trees, were withdrawn from sale, an
- set apart a.' a reserve. In 1825 con
gress appropriated $10,000 to buy ad
ditional live oak land on Santa Ros
e Sound, western Florida, and subse
* quently other Florida timber lands
I aggregating 203.224 acres, were re
e served.
Up to that time nothing more hao
been done than to buy or reserve lan
for the timber growing naturally upoi
it; but the work was to be carrie<
further upoo. the Santa Rosa pur
chase. The plan included planting
protecting, cultivating and cutting
live oak for the navy. The timber
was then considered indispensable in
building war vessels. Much had been
said and written of the danger of ex
haustion of supply. Settlers destroy
ed the timber to clear iand, and Eu
ropean nations were buying large
quantities for their navies. In re
sponse to repeated warnings the gov
ernment finally took steps to grow
timber for its own use.
Young oaks were planted on the
Santa Rosa lands. Dufficulty was ex
perienced in inducing young trecs to
grow. The successful transplanting
of the oak is not easy, unless done at
the proper time and in the right way.
The plantations at Santa Rosa were
generally unsuccessful, but large
quantities of acorns were planted and
a fair proportion of them grew. But
the chief efforts were directed to
pruning, training and caring for the
wild trees. Thickets about them
were cut away to let in air and light.
What the ultimate success of the
forestry work would have been cannot
be told. The civil war brought a
complete change in war vessel by
substituting iron for wood. Forestry
work stopped. The timber reserves
were neglected. Squatters occupied
the land. After a number of years
all the reserves, except some of the
Florida land. were opened to settle-

gered a moment and gone on, but the
trade of tailoring has remained just
the same, and during all those thous-
1 ands of years, until the advent of elec-
| tricity. just one invention was given
to the tailor to lighten his burdens
and that has been the sewing ma- THE PLACE TO BUY YOUR

a tailor could command were his
goose, his yard stick, shears, needle

and thread, and a chalk-marked table.IHay n ats, r S
whtreon he must sit cross-leggedt, a
habit begor in those early days when
tailors pfrforce sat on the ground as
they worked and now an instinctive tt
habit of the trade. 4

During an those centuries the tai-
lir's goose consisted of a heavy slab
of bronze or cast iron fitted with a
suitable handle and heated over a
charcoal fire. With this crude tool
clothes have been pressed through all
the styles from the toga to the latest
peg-top trousers. The handiest de-
vice perfected for this trade since the
sewing machine is the electric tailor's
goose which improves sanitary condi-
tions, reduces liability of cloth scorch-
ing and of fire hazards; it does away
with soot and reduces the tempera-
ture of the v.ork shops.
Electric lights and electric signs
wore among the very first of the elec-
trical devices adopted by the trade.
and electric fans were not slow to fol-
low. The small motor has been ap-
plied to the sewing machine, relieving
the tailor from the hard work of
treading the machine. The button-
hole machine. cloth, scouring and
cleaning machines, rotary and recip-
rocating cloth cutting machines are
also motor-driven.
The tailor still sits cross-legged on
his bench, and plies his busy needle,
and he smiles as he works, for well he
knows that the faithful servant, elec-
tricity. hut awaits the touch of a but-
ton to come and do the hardest work
about the little shop.

ires, may make satisfactory terms
between himself and the lessee, and
--rk overtime, the prisoner to re-

As a matter of fact, the prisoners

Heretofore the state has been leas-
ing all of its prisoners, including wo-
men, and the old and infirm. Upon
the recommendation of the commis-
sioner of agriculture and of the gov-
ernor, the legislature of 1909 appro-
priated $50,000, and directed the
board of commissioners of state in-
stitutions to purchase not less than
500 acres, suitable for a penitentiary
and state prison farm. The commis-
sioners were directed to "withhold
from lessee all females, the aged, dis-
eased, crippled, deformed, and all oth-
er prisoners, who, in the discretion of
the said board are not suited to per-
form manual labor."
This will serve as a nucleus for the
state penitentiary. The number of
prisoners now handled in Florida
ranges from 1700 to 1750. The death
rate is 12.60 in 1907, to 11.30 in 1908
per thousand. "In most cases the
prisoners die from the effect of dis-
eases contracted prior to entering the
state prison." This death rate is less
than what it is in some insurance
companies in which, of course, they
pick their members. The U. S. cen-
sus of 1900, Vol. 3, P. 56, registration

addition to this, there is always a

We have a system of inspection by
which the camps are Inspected once
in every one or two months. The in-
spectors make thorough reports,
showing the condition of the camps
and reporting all grievances. It is
also their duty to recommend, with-
out charge, suitable persons for par-
don. In our climate, it is more or less
absolutely necessary that a large
body of criminals should not be hud-
dled together in a close inclosure. At
present they are divided into about
41 camps, In which houses are built,
surrounded by modern palisades or
walls. There are really 41 state pen-
itentiaries. When the lease system
is discontinued it will, of course, be
necessary to consolidate them all
into one. two nr more farms. Every
possible effort is made to protect
these unfortunate convicts from mis-
In Florida, short term convicts, sen-
tenced by local courts, are leased out
by the county commissioners, and the
terms and conditions prescribed for
their care and treatment and use,
vary greatly, and are very irregular.
In some of the counties a reduction
of time is allowed for good behavior
of the convicts, while in others there
is no such. reduction. In some coun-
ties it is required that decent cloth-
ing and a small amount of money be
given to each prisoner when releas-
ed. In other counties discharged
prisoners are given nothing. The
state makes provision for each of
these allowances. Experience has
shown that when serious wrongs are
perpetrated in the treatment of coun-
ty convicts, criticisms are hurled at
the whole system, regardless of the
successful efforts which the state and
many counties are making to have
the lease system operated in a care-
ful and humane manner. Some of the
newspapers are too politic to locate
the responsibility for abuses which
occur, to place blame where it be-
longs, preferring instead to bring a
general indictment against the whole
lease system, thereby doing gross in-
justice to the state and to a number
of the counties which have gone a
long ways towards perfecting said

It looks much like a case of sour
grapes. The unqualified statement is
made that Mr. Clark could not under
any circumstances have been elected
as secretary of his party's congres-
sional committee, as he is in bad odor
with the majority of his party asso-
ciates, and had he been a candidate
would have been defeated. Instead
of suffering the humiliation of defeat,
Mr. Clark having in mind the fact
that he who fights and runs away may
live to fight another day, refused to
permit his name to be presented to
his party caucus. Not being the rep-
resentative of Florida upon the con-
gressional committee, he was not el-
igible to election.
Mr. Clark as not attempted to ex-
plain why Mr. Mays, a new member,
was chosen as Florida's representa-
tive. He may have some seemingly
plausible explanation. However that
may be, the fact remains that Mr.
Clark is unpopular with those in con-
trol of the democratic organization in
the house. It may be that the major-
ity of his party associates are Bryan-
ttes, and resent Mr. Clark's attack
upon the Nebraskan.
Mr. Clark has announced himself a
candidate for re-election and he hcpes
to be a member of the next house.
Democratic Leader Champ Clark of
Missouri, ard other prominent demo-
crats, are predicting party succe-s at
congressional eletcions next year. It
is their opinion that the democrats
will control the next house. What
degree of modesty caused Mr. Clark
of Florida to withdraw from his par-
ty organization with success seeming-
ly so near at hand. with a democratic
speaker Mr. Clark of Florida, as sec-
retary of the congressional commit-
tee, would have been in line for ex-
cellent committee assignments, where
he could have been valuable to his
constituents at home, of whom he

(The folloting poem was regarded
by Edgar Allen Poe as the most beau-
tiful and touching of its kind in the
English language.)
It hath bee said for all who die
There is a tear,
Some pining, bleeding heart to sigh
O'er every bier;
But in that hour of pain and dread
Who will be near
Around my humble couch and shed
One farewell tear?
Who'll watch the fast departing ray
In deep despair,
And soothe the spirit on its way
With holy prayer?
What mourner 'round my couch will
In words of woe,
And follow me to my long home,
Solemn and slow?
When lying in my earthly bed
In icy sleep,
Who thou by pure affection led
Will come and weep?
By the pale moon implant the rose
Upon the breast,
And bid it cheer my dark repose,
My lonely rest?
Could I but know when I am sleeping
Low in the ground,
One faithful heart would then be
Watch all around,
As if some gem lay shrined beneath
That cold sod's gloom,
'Twould mitigate the pangs of death
And light the tomb.
Yes, In that hour if I could feel
From the halls of glee
And beauty's presence one would
In secrecy
And come and sit or stand by me
In night's dead noon,
Oh, I would ask of memory
No other boon.
But, ah, a lonelier fate is mine,
A deeper woe;
From all I've loved in youth's sweet
I soon must go;
Draw 'round me my pale robes of
In a dark spot
To sleep through death's long dream-
less night,
Lone and forgot.

Charging Less for
is Paid Every Day
for Water

Spokane, Aug. 11.-John D. Rocke-
feller, as a philanthropist and as an
example for the nation to copy, was
held up to the consideration of the
national irrigation congress today by
W. J. McGee of Washington, secre-
tary of the inland waterways commis-
sion. Dr. McGee said water's value
to the humar race was in the propor-
tion of 100 to 1 for all other necessi-
"And yet," he said, "with water
thus valuable and necessary to the
human race, John D. Rockefeller
charges less for a gallon of oil, after
it has passed through many processes
than a spring water concern does for
a gallon of mineral water that has not
been treated in any way.
"I regard Mr. Rockefeller as at once
a generous, public benefactor, and a
wise and careful business man. He
has had a9! the opportunity in the
world to exact an exorbitant toll
from the public and yet he charges
less for oil than is paid every day for
common water."

Additional Ballast
For many months past the Atlantic
Coast Line has had its road gangs
busy making complete inspections of
Its roadbed. These inspections have
been followed by repairs to the weak
places. As a result, the roadbed be-
tween Jacksonville and St. Peters-
burg is now one of the finest and saf-
est in this part of the country. From
Jacksonville to Burnett's Lake the
track is laid with 85-pound'rail. From
Barnett's Lake as far south as Red-
Sick. a few miles north of Ocala. the
track has been re-laid with 65-pound
rail. and thus improvements will con-
tinue as fa- sotrth as Croom, about
seventy-five miles south. From
Croom to Trilby the trains will run
ever the Lakeland district, a distance
of nine miles. on S5-pound rail. and
from Trilby to St. Petersburg over 65-
pound rail

While swimming in the Gulf of
Mexico with a party of friends dur-
ing a cruise last week, Editor Straub
was fiercely attacked by a shark, and
only succeeded in beating it off after
a desperate struggle in shallow wa-
ter. Miss Blanche was swimming at
his side and the possibilities of what
might have been are rather appalling.
Mr. Straub, Miss Blanche and Mr.
Paul L. James were attempting a
long-distance swim, during which Mr.
Straub felt some object persistently
and sharply striking his person from
underneath, but not wishing to drop
out of the race he merely struck un-
der to drive off what he presumed
was some fish, aad kept on his way.
Reaching the goal in shoal water.
with the attacks keeping up, he was
able to give his assailant personal at-
tention. and.found a shark about four-
teen inches long ferociously yanking
away at the tie strings of his bath-
ing suit, as if fully determined to de-
vour him, strings, suit and all. If the
shark had been just as feorcious and
fourteen feet long instead of four-
teen inches-but that would have
been another story.-St. Petersburg

Dr. C. J. Kenworthy recently died

was a correspondent of the "Forest

other points on the gulf coast. He
afterwards removed to Florida and re-

"A Negro Hanged at Ocala, Flor-

newspapers head-lined the recent

is but one Ocala, and that one is in
Florida. No suffixes nor prefixes are
necessary. Just write it "Ocala"-
that's all that is necessary.

who have been living for a time on
a houseboat at Marathon, down on

The child was rescued immediately,
but it is supposed to have been a case

Ocala is to have a new railroad. On
this road the schedules will be so ar-
ranged, if the Banner has its way,
that all the trains will come into
Ocala, but none will go out, or in case

out they will not be allowed to carry
any passengers. That is all right.

An issue of the New York World of

It has an article on the sweltering
heat of the previous day. We are
told in the headlines that 10.000 per-

Henry Craig, a white man, met
death in a horrible manner in the
gulf off Pensacola last week.
"Craig was employed on the fish-
ing smack Halcyon. H had gone to
the forward part of the boat to at-
tend repairs to the rigging, and in
some manner fell overboard. He
was a good swimmer and came to the
yacht. His companions saw him
headed for the boat and ran forward
to throw him a line. Just then a
shark's fin arose directly behind him.
The men on board shouted to him to
look out for the shark, but the warn-
ing was useless. A giant fish of the
man-eating species closed upon him
and snapped his body in twain be-
fore the horror-stricken men on
board could do anything to help him.
The water was dyed red with his
blood for a few seconds as the shark
dragged the body beneath the waves.
"The horrible affair occurred at a
point between the navy yard and the
city proper, and only a short distance
from the srcre."

The Tampa Times Wants to Find a
Quick Automobile Route to
Tampa, Fla., Aug. 11, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
As you have probably noticed in the
edition of the Times, Saturday, Au-
gust 7th, we propose to offer a cup to
the automobile which first arrives in
Jacksonville in open competition. The
cars to leave Tampa at the same hour
on the same day and may choose any
route they desire to Jacksonville.
We would ask you to co-operate
with the Times in this path-finding
contest, as our object is to blaze the
way from Jacksonville through to
Tampa and south Florida, and thus
make it possible for autoists to drive
through from New York and interme-
diate places to Atlanta or Savannah,
thence to Jacksonville, to which point
the path-finders have covered.
With a route through Florida, prop-
erly posted and a route book printed,
it will be easy for drivers to find their
way, and over the best roads that ex-
ist. It appeals to you, no doubt, that
these automobile parties passing
through your city would be a good
thing to your business interests, and
that it will sitmulate the good reads
We ask that you have some driver
in your city send to us at once the
best route leading from your city to
the town first north of you in which a
newspaper is published. While we
say first north, it might be better ex-
pressed at the first city in which a
newspaper is published in the most
direct route to Jacksonville over the
best roads that exist.
Also to send to the "Automobile Ed-
itor" of the Times marked copies of
your paper containing any reference
to the path-finding contest.
Yours truly.
D. B. McKAY.

Those newspapers which are inclin-
ed to condemn Senator Taliaferro for
voting for a 9 per cent. tariff on print
paper, may commend him for voting
for a tariff of 12 per cent. on lum-
ber, 20 per cent. on Egyptian cotton,
and 30 per cent. on pineapples. The
tariff of $4 per ton on print paper is
really a reduction of $2 from the for-
mer rate, and amounts to about 9 per
cent. ad valorem, at which rate the
average village weekly will pay less
than $10 a year. We have noticed
that Senator Taliaferro always places
his vote where it will do the most
good for Florida, both. directly and in-
directly. and his vote on print paper
had an indirect bearing on other Flor-
ida interests.-Punta Gorda Herald.
And so Aldrich and all the other
high protectionists did the same thing
for their respective states. And if
it is right to praise Taliaferro i. is
right to praise the balance of the

for myself, I am very well content
