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.

To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Our vacation has been a delightful
one, the best feature saved for the
last, namely, the trip to Clearwater.
The day was idylic. Editor Converse
of the Press extended a cordial greet-
ing. Through the courtesy of Mr. Ed
Jeffords, formerly of Ocala, we en-
joyed a ride to Bellesir, and its im-
posing Belieview hotel. The glimpse
Into its gardens Elysian will long be
remembered. After a sumptuous re-
past with Mrs. E. P. Annspaugh, who
proved tn ideal hc: es-, we strolled
to the dock, where the bavy a various
rainbow splendors stretched out be-
fore us. There were fishermen cast-
ing their nets into the sea, and ves-
sels, from the great Tampa schooner
to the dimiLutive rowboat, In waiting.
Boarding a launch with a merry
crew, under the pilotship of Captain
Cone. we steered westward, anchor-
ing at Hog Island, where we plunged
into the mighty deep, which, with a
thunderous roar, dashed into foamy
fragments at our feet.
There are signs of progress all
about over this picturesque city,
which is attractive at all seasons of
the year, and the visit there will
mark an epoch in our lives.
We have made frequent visits to
Wall Springs, a really poetic little
spot. Rowing across the bay we land-
eA, as did Robinson Crusoe, on a lone-
ly Wtand, where we started out to in-
terview the aborigines. The mother-
ly old cow eyed us critically, until we
doubted whether we would "pass mnus-
ter." The bluelays fairly bristled
with Indignation at the intrusion, and
the cranes, crabs and fiddlers simply
"skiddooed" into space. (Don't know
whether I ha#e spelled that word
right or not: at any rate. it isn't copy-
righted, and It would have been naore
proper not to have used it at all).
Mrs.. R. G. Blake and family arriv-
ed in our hamlet yesterday. Other
Ocalians are expected next week. A

Few deaths have occurred in our
city that w* announce with more re-
gret than that of Mr. T. F. Walseman,
the Florida representative of the New
York Packet
Being of a rugged, robust frame,
and possessing great physical
strength, the deceased overestimated
his ability to ward off disease, and
in his enthusiasm to build up the
Packer he faced all kinds of weather,
got wet, took cold, and as a result fe-
ver set in, and unheeding it, he was
a very sick man before his condition
became known to Dr. Thompson, with
whom he was boarding. As soon as
the doctor discovered it, however, he
began immediate treatment and suc-
ceeded in getting his fever checked,
but on Friday night Mr. Walseman
became` somewhat flighty and the doc-
tor gave him a sedative to steady his
nerves; still he d1 ned of not
sleeping, and on S 7 eight he
became still more delUrio-thnd the
medicines the doctor gave him failed
to have the desired effect, and some-
time during the night Mr. Walseman
dressed himself and went down into
the city, and acted so much like one
under the influence of an intoxicant
that the policemen (not knowing him)
arrested him and placed him in the
city lock-up. He was not in jail but
a little more than an hour before the
o',*r inmates discovered that he was
It is a most regrettable affair, and
one of the saddest chapters that has
ever come under our notice.
Mr. Walseman had just declared his
intention of becoming a citizen of our
town and county, and was in a posi-
tion to do us a great deal of good and
liad the disposition to do so, and his
?.vdden taking off can only be regard-
ed in the nature of a public calamity.
He was in love with Ocala and our
people, and in all respects was a lov-
able and splendid maa.
He had high .ideals and was making
a great reputation for the paper he
was repreentlng.

News was received In the cty yes-
terday afternoon announcing the
death of Mrs. Kellogg, who was spends
Itd the summer at Alexandria Bay, N.
Y. Mrs. Kellogg had been a resident
of Ocala for several years. and was
mucb revered by our people. Her
daughter Mrs. Jean Austin, and her
distteguisbed son, Mr. Frank Kellogg,
of St. Paul, Minn.. were with her at
the time of her death.
Mrs. Kellcgg had reached the ad-
vanced age cf S5 years.

The Park Hotel at Jacksonville,
which is now under the management
of Mr. E. P. Thagard, Is headquarters
for all Ocala and Marion county peo-
W!e. It is pleasantly situated,1A4 a
new hotel, and consequently newly
fitrnished throughout, and in its ap-
pointments is one of the best equip-
ped in Jacksonville, which is fast be-
coming a city of hotels. Mr. Wolf,
who achieved such a fine reputation
as manager of the Capital Cafe, just
after the fire, is in charge of the din-
Ing room at the Park. and the art of
what he does not know about getting
up something good to eat has been
lost. There is nothing up to date 'that
has escaped him. and the dining room
of the Park is fast gaining a reputa-
tion with the traveling public, and
the people of J:ckon.'-'P!e who are ep-

Our new playhouse will be up to
date in every respect, and will have
seating capacity sufficient to accom-
modate the theater-goers of Ocala for
some years to come. The interior, it
is said, will compare favorably with
the theaters of cities four times the
size of Ocala.
This enterprise is largely due to the
tenactty of Messrs. Jake Brown and
R. E. Yonge. it was through their ef-
forts that the entire amount of stock
needed for the construction of the
building was subscribed.
It has been proposed that a "tag
day" at the coming Marion county
fair be inaugurated for the purpose of
raising funds for the stage settings
and seats, which is the only part of
the enterprise not yet provided for.
Mr. .J. W. Sylvester, who had charge
of the Marion opera house until it
Iwas changed into an office building
about two years ago, and later of the
Iarmory, which has been our only show
house for the past two years, will
have charge of the new theater.
Mr. Syivester has been connected
with the theatrical business nearly
all his life, and with his wide experi-
ence Ocalians can rest assu ed that
they will have the best theta is as
soon as the new house is in ape -to
take care of all comers.
It is thought that the ne* house
will be ready for business by Janu-
ary 1.


Special to the Ocala Banner:
Mr. and Mrs. Bob Rogers' launch
party for Miss Ethel Stanaland, via
the Oregonian and Roxie, to Silver
Springs Saturday was a romantic af-
fair, and it was a grand success.
The old Indian country was beauti-
fully adorne. with the delicate blue
and lighted with an August, but Oc-
tober-like sun, and the tropical and
semi-troplcai trees majestically lined
the trail we.traveled, and, linked with
the wild animals we noticed along
the moss-festooned river, and the
many little things that happened en
route, together with the sweet ways
of our young lovers, why, "romantic"
spells the occasion, Sir Nestor Har-
'Then to fill our romantic selves;
Gee! We ilt; the most delicious din-
ner ever, jtst over the grand blue
grotto of S!Iver Springs.
Those in this party were Mr. and
Mrs. Bob Rogers, Miss Ethel Stana-
land, Miss Flossie Stanaland, Miss
Alice Chalkcr, Miss Maxie Fort, Miss
Carrie Holly, Miss Amy Hutto and
Mr. and .M' E. C. Smith of Electra,
Messrs. J hn Rogers, Holly, Patrick
and Grad*- Reynolds, Raymond Holly,
Hatton P.rkins, R. C. Fort, Walter
Fort, Ern'st Roberts, William Sewell,
Carl Masoi.. Henry Mason and Al-
beit Grah-ni.

In going to Jacksonville Saturday,
the looks of the orange trees along
the route made us fell sad. In for-
mer years this county furnished at
least three-fifths of all the oranges
crown in the state. From Oak Hur-;"
o Cilra there was a continuous
-'rtch of groves for a distance of five
-n'le. or more and the trees were
healthy. the leaves glossy and the
fruit bright and with ut. speck or
blemish. Not so now. The "white
fly" has done his work almost more

a year, she having been one of the
most apt scholars of Mrs. Souter's

be something done in regard to im

commodations and the manner in
which things are generally conducted
here--and then it will not give cause
for so many wanting to send their

mous football coach. He has recent-
ly brought himself into great promi-
nence in the work at Stetson Univer-
sity by designing and making com-
plete specifications for the new men's
dormitory, now nearing completion.
He has also designed and prepared
specifications for a number of the
homes recently built in DeLand by

ture of DeLand than any other half
dozen men in the "Athens of Florida."
His work in mechanical drawing and
shop work brings bim into close per-
sonal touch with all the boys who
come to Stctson for mechanic arts
courses, and through them he is mak-
ing his influence felt throughout the
state. The professor takes great
pride in the rapid promotion of the
graduates of his department. One of
them has recently been put in charge
of the Erie Railroad round house, the
largest railroad round house in New

important railroad and mining sur-
vey in the far west. Still another of

By Good Playing and Hard Hitting
Ocala Wins From Gainesville by
Score of Eight to Nothing!
They didn't know, but they learned,
The lane was long but it turned,
The autos tooted,
The rooters rooted,
And Gainesville said "I'll be "
The pitcher didn't Walk-er man
The catcher Waller'd in the sand
As the fielders felt
Each spherical pelt
And caught 'em as they ran.
That's the story of yesterday's game
with the crack team of the Univer-
sity City. Nearly three hundred per-
sons went up on the excursion to wit-
ness this big game, and whtn the fi-
nal score of 8 to 0 was announced felt
well repaid for their trip.
The Oak Halls of Gainesville has
long had the reputation of beiig one
of the very best teams in the state,
and when the dates for the games of
yesterday and today were fixed Ocala
got busy and put in some hard Ipra<-
tice, the result of which was showu in
the first game.
There is nothing like encourage-
ment, and when the Ocala boys would
look over a* the grandstand and see
so many familiar faces, hear their
cheering and clapping of hands and
waving of parasols and handkerchiefs
it only spurred them on to greater ef-
forts, with. the result that Gainesville
was goose-egged to a finish.
The following telegram was receiv-
ed last nigl-t trom our business man-
ager, Mr. P. V. Leaveng)od, who was
among the big crowd of spectators:
Gainesville, Fla., Aug. 26, 1903.
Special to Ocala Banner:
Ocala boys shut out Gainesville's
crack team this afternoon by a score
of eight to nothing.
Ocala had the game their own way
from the start, scoring in frst inning.
The score- R H E
Ocala. ......... ... .......8 9 2
Gainesville ...............0 5 7
Batteries: Ocala, Walker and Wal-
ler; Gainesville, Heinz and Watson
and Spottswood, Miller and Bullock.
Watson was benched by the umpire
in the fourth inning.
Umpire: Lee Graham.
The Ocala boys all did good hitting,
it making no difference which pitcher:
was in the box.
The rooters did their part, too.
P. V. L.

Gainesville Takes the Second Game
by Score of 9 to 5

After being goose-egged in Thurs-
day afternoon's game, Gainesville's
fast team, the Oak Halls, gathered
their forces together in Friday's game
and went in to win, and win they did
by a score of 9 to 5.
Quite a good many of the Ocala ex-
curionists who went up on Thurs-
day also remained over to see Fri-
day's game, which was a much more
exciting contest than the one of the
day before, and as a result both
teams and spectators are satisfied, as
the honors ere now even.
The Oak Halls are expected down
for two games in this city next week,


with them will come every fan

(Written tor the Ocaia Banner.)

The evening was glorious, and light through the trees,
Plays the sunshine and rain-drops, the birds and the
The landscape outstretching in loveliness lay
On the lap of the year, in the beauty of May.
For the Queen of the Spring, as she passed down the vi
Left her robe on the trees, and her breath on the gale
And the smile of her promise gave joy to the hours,
And flush in her footsteps sprang herbage and flowers.
The skies, like a banner in sunset unroll'd,
O'er the west threw their splendor of azure and gold;
But one cloud at a distance rose dense, and increased,
Till its margin of black touch'd the zenith and east.
We gazed on the scenes, while around us they glow'd,
When a vision of beauty appeared on the cloud;
'Twas not like the sun, as at mid-day we view,
Nor the moon that rolls nightly through starlight and
Like a spirit it came, as in the van of a storm,
And the eye, also heart, hail'd its beautiful form;
For it looked not severe, like an angei of wrath,
But its garment of brightness illumin'd its dark path.
In the hues of its grandeur sublimely it stood,
Caressing all Nature, the bad and the good-
O'er the streamlet, the vi:lage anrl woodlands grew br
As conscious they gave and afforded delight.
'Twas the bow r" O -ninolence. heiit in His hand,
WbVose grasp nt creation the universe spanned;
r" the pri n *> God, in a symbol sublime,
." .'nm thi fV ,.d to the exit of time!
< '!. v,-! < n in the whirlwind he pleads,
\"':cui storms are his rharict, and iightning his steeds;
The black clouds his banner of vengeance unfurl'd,
And thunder his voice to a grilt-stricken world.
In the breath of his presence, when thousands expire,
The seas boil with fury, and rocks burn with fire;
The keen sword, also plague-spot, with death strew to
Vultures, hungry wolves, are the graves of the slain.
Not such was God's Rainbow, that beautiful one,
Whose arch was refraction, Its key-stone the Sun;
A pavilion it seemed which the Deity graced,
And justice and mercy met there, then embraced.
Awhile it so sweetly bent over the gloom,
Like love o'er a death-couch, or hope o'er the tomb;
Then left the dark scene, whence it softly retired,
As love had just vanished, or hope had expired.
I gaz'd not alone on the source of my song-
To all who beheld it these verses belong;
Its presence to all was the path of the Lord!
Each full heart expanded, grew warm, and adored!
Like a visit--4he converse of friend--or a day,
That bow from my sight passed forever away;
Like that visit, that converse, that day. to my heart
That bow from remembrance can never depart.
'Tis a picture in memory distinctly defined,
WiIb lovely, and bright, unfading coloi of mind;
A part of my being beyond my control,
Beheld on that cloud and transcribed on my soul.

benefit of a lumber tariff? Second-
what is the magnitude of that benefit?
During the pendency of the Payne
tariff bill in the senate there was a
group of lumber men in the commit-
tee room of Senator Burrows of Mich-
igan. One of these gentlemen who
hails from Minnesota, figured a few
minutes upon an envelope, and then
remarked: "Mr. Burrows, do you
know what a tariff of one dollar a
thousand would mean to this little
crowd of men in here?" There were
only half a dozen in the room at the
time. This man who had been figur-
ing on an envelope said that a tariff
of $1 a thousand on lumber meant
$6,125,000 on last year's cut of lum-
ber to the few men who were in that
room. In other words, a tariff of $1 a
thousand was a proposition to take

On Tuesday last, at Millville, at
about the noon hour, a little boy nam-
ed Jones. while attempting to get
from a wharf into a boat, fell into
more than four feet of water, and
would have certainly been drowned
but for Mr. Claude L'Engle, who, vis-
iting on the bay, while hastening to
get a passage on the Jully Rover,
chanced to be near enough to witness
the event, and at once plunged in and
rescued the little fellow from certain
death.-St. Andrews Buoy.

Mr. S. E. Cobb has resigned his po-

In his great Boston speech: the last
utterance from the lips of the immor-
tal Grady, the distinguished, southern
Cicero, paid the following tribute to
two lovable characters that are fast
vanishing from the stage of southern
life-the "black mammy" and the
"body servant."
Mr. Grady said:
"The love we feel for that race you
can neither measure nor comprehend.
As I attest it here, the spirit of my old
black mammy from her home up there
looks down to bless me, and through
the tumult of this night steals the
sweet music of her croonings, as thir-
ty years ago she held me in her black
arms and led me smiling into sleep.
"This scene vanishes as I speak,
and I catch a vision of an old south-
ern home, with its lofty pillars and
Its white pigeons fluttering down
through the golden air. I see women
with strained and anxious faces and
children alert, yet helpless. I see
night come down with its dangers and
apprehensions, and in a big lonely
home I feel on my tired brow the
touch of loving hands, now worn and
wrinkled, but fairer to me yet than
the hands of mortal woman and
stronger yet to lead me than the
hands of mortal man; and as they lay
a mother's blessing there while at her
knees-the truest altar I have ever
known-I thank God that she is safe
in her sanctuary, because her slaves,
sentinel in the silent cabin, or guard
at the chamber door, put a black
man's loyalty between her and dan-
"But I catch another vision. The
crisis of battle-a soldier struck, stag-
gering, falls. I see a slave, scuffling
through the smoke, winding his black
arms about the fallen form, reckless
of the hurtling death, bending his
trusty face to catch the words that
tremble on the stricken lips, so wrest-
ling meanwhile with agony that he
would lay down his life in his mas-
ter's stead. I see him by the weary
bedside, ministering with uncomplain-
ing patience, praying with all his
humble heart, until death comes in
mercy and in honor to still -the sol-
dier's agony and seal the soldier's life.
I see him by the open grave, mute,
motionless, uncovered; suffering for
the death of him who in life fought
against his freedom. I see him when
the mound is heaped and the great
drama of his life Is (osed turn away,
and with downcast eyes and uncertain
steps, start out into new and strange
fields, faltering, struggling, but mov-
ing on until his stumbling figure is
lost in the light of a better and bright-
er day. And from the grave comes a
voice, saying: 'Follow him. Put your
arms about him in his need, even as
he puts his about me. Be his friend
as he was mine,' and out into this new
world---strange to me as to him, daz-
zling, bewildering both-I follow! And
may God forget my people when they
forget these!"
In later years another Georgian has
arisen to pay tribute equally as fer-
vent and eloquent because sincere
and truthful, to the same functionary
that oecupled so large a phase in
southern life. Mr. Peter Francis
Mr. Smith said:
"God blues; the old black hand that
rocked our infant cradles, smoothed
our Infant pillows and fanned thd fe-
ver from our cheeks. God bless the
ol tongue that immortalized the nur-
sery rhymes; the old eyes that guided
our truant feet; the old heart that
laughed at our childish freaks. God
bless the dusky old brow. whose wrin-
kies told of toll and sweat and sor-
row. May the green turf rest lightly
on their ashes, and the wild flowers
deck every lonely grave where "He
giveth His beloved sleep." May their
golden dreams of golden slippers, of
golden streets, of golden harps and
of golden crowns have become golden

spal wisely. though with seeming
tacetiousness some time ago when he
said that it was time for the consum-
ers of the country to get together.
The consumers of the country are
getting together, and this coalition is
coming about regardless of sections
and party affiliations. The republi-
cans, liberals or insurgents, or what
not, as one chooses, crowded the desm-
ocrats off their own platform in the
recent tariff debate, and they were
applauded throughout the country as
being moved by impulses of the high-
est patriotism-they stood for the
consumers, for the greatest good to
the greatest number. The following
from Collier's Weekly affords an ex-
"The legislature of Ohio sent a me-
morial to congress demanding free
lumber. The republican state con-
vention in Ohio last year demanded
free lumber. The entire republican
delegation at Washington had an op-
portunity to vote for free lumber-it
was before both the senate and lower
house. In the senate Mr. Burton vot-
ed for free lumber and Mr. Dick did
not. In the lower house some Ohio
congressmen voted for free lumber
and some did not. Will Ohio bear
this record ir mind when it comes to
electing a new congressional delega-
tion? At present, Ohio has no insur-
gent congressment. Yet the political
sentiment of the people of Ohio must
be much the same as in Wisconsin,
Iowa and Minnesota." -
If the democratic platform was good
enough for the republicans, it does
seem that it should have been good
enough for democrats.-Miami Me-


Ex-Governor Broward will be a can
didate for United States senator td
the next primary. The question
which has been discussed by the stait
press frequently of late is answered.
Mr. Broward spent yesterday in the
city and was.interviewed by a Record
representative. He was asked the'
question direct and he answered it as
straight as i* was asked, without quib-
bling or beating about the bush. Heo
said that he intends to become a can
didate, but that it is very early to
make an announcement or to launch
the campaign. He will be found a
very active factor when the campaign
opens, being a hard fighter and a tire-
less worker.
His business here yesterday was of
a private nature and he had no inten-
tion whatever of announcing his can-
didacy until he was accosted by the
Record representative, but he did not
hesitate to state his position when
In speaking of the drainage work
in the Everglades he said the dredges
are doing very effective work, and
that an immense area will be reclaim-
ed. He has not changed his opinion
as to the advisability of draining the
Everglades and still believes that the
state will greatly profit by the reclam-
ation of the overflowed land.
The ex-governor seems to be enjoy-
ing his usual rugged health. He left
on the evening train for Jacksonville.

A wedding of widespread Interest
was solemnized at Boston on Wednes-
day. The groom was Mr. Charleb H.
Walton of Titusville, Fla.. and the
bride, Miss Wilhelmina Eleanor
Mack, a charming Boston woman.
Miss Mack is a daughter of the late
Mr. William Blaine Mack, an inventor
of considerable note, and formerly a
partner of Mr. John H. Flagler, cousin
of that well known Florida benefa.c-
tor, Mr. Henry M. Flagler, in Pitts-
burg, Pa. Miss Mack lived with her
sister, Dr. Helen Flagler Mack, a
prominent physician of Cambridge,
Boston. She is one of Boston's talent-
ed soprano singers, and formerly led
160 soprano voices of the Boston Han-
del and Hayden Society. Her mag-
nificent voice has made her quite pop-
ular in Boston musical circles.
Mr. Walton is editor of the East
Coast Advocate, familiarly known as
the "pink paper." He is well known
all over the state, and when his en-
gagement was announced several
months ago It was qeite a surprise to
his friends, and he was very warmly
The gioom has just completed at
Titusville a very handsome concrete
residence, which Is a bridal present
to Mrs. Walton, and after an exten-
sive wedding ,trip Mr. and Mrs. Wal-
ton will return to their Florida home.
The Ocala Banner unites with the
entire state press in congratulating
Mr. Walton and in extending a wel-
come to his bride.

ed upon to explain to his dissatisfied
constituents his vote upon the tariff
he rose equal to the occasion. He
"My Fellow Citizens: I defy any
man to deny that the fathers were in-
spired by a higher power when they
framed our constitution. It has stood
the test of time, and it has been proof
against the assaults of all who would
tear down our noble institutions. Nor
does it matter whether the declara-
tion of independence was the work
of one man or of many. It stands to-
day, as it stood in the beginning, as
the very soul of freedom. Who can
read a line of it wtihout feeling the
thrill of patriotism, without being a
better and a prouder citizen?
"Ah! my friends, as I gaze on the
folds of that glorious flag-as I con-
template those sacred stars and
stripes-as I watch the waving of that
banner-the most beautiful on God's
green earth-I am proud of the tears
that force themselves into my eyes,
and I lift up my head with 'the knowl-
edge that, what ever may come Amer-
ican manhood will assert itself, and
woe betide the foreign foe who at-
tempts to drag those consecrated
folds in the dust.
"I thank you, my friends, for your
touching expressions of confidence."

To begin with,

he has a nice outfit, and being a first
class printer, will do excellent work.
Mr. Bowie does not believe in petty
bickering in a newspaper and the
News will not be run on these lines.
He is liberal minded in all things, and
his sole object will be to advance the
material interests of Crystal River
and Citrus county. We do not believe
there will be any brickbats thrown
by the News or Chronicle. Individ-
uals might want to see such a state of
affairs, but they will be disappointed.
We heartily welcome Mr. Bowie to
the journalistic field of Citrus coun-
ty, knowing him to be qualified in ev-
ery particular, and furthermore,
knowing that his splendid energies
will be devoted to the welfare of our
people and county. The Chronicle
sincerely wishes him success in his
new field of labor, and trusts 'that he
and his most excellent family will re-
ceive the welcome of Crystal River-
ites that they so rich-ly deserve.-In-
verness Chronicle.

It has been often thought strange
that a woman rarely ever appeals to
her own sex for fairness and sympa-
thy. The opinion is proverbial that a
woman is never disposed to treat an-
other woman fairly. But does not
this rule apply in other directions?
Are not editors disposed to treat
one another unfairly? We remember
when the late 'young Senator Bryan
"roasted" tn- editor of this paper his
letter was extensively printed by the
newspapers of the state, with the fear-
ful headlines, "The Nestor is de-
capitated;" "put into a hole," and
things of that kind, but not a news-
paper, so far as we remember, was
fair enough to print the Ocala Ban-
ner's reply.
Recently Representative Frank
Clark wrote a "roast" of the Miami
Metropolis, hot to the point of siz-
zling, through the columns of the
Jacksonville Metropolis, in order to
give it more extensive circulation,
and the letter was extensively copied
by the press of the state, but so far
as we know the Ocala Banner is the
only paper that printed the congress-
man's letter that likewise printed the
Miami Metropolis' reply.
What's the matter with the editors
that they cannot be fair to one anoth-
er. If we are not disposed to hold up
one another's hands, we ought at
least to be fair.

"Since the state has seen proper to
cut down the pension list. why not
lower the taxes accordingly? The
heavy taxation and the reckless and
injudicious expenditure of the public
funds are now preying upon the needs
of the people. These are facts too
plain to be called a joke. Somebody
must wake up and get busy."
Bless your heart, "Suggestor," ii it

Ft. Win. McKinley, P. I., July 20, '09.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Peeling that you might appreciate
a letter from me, an old Ocala boy,
.1 will make an effort in that line.
Well, you may know that I have
been a great traveler. It seems that
I was born afflicted with what they
call "wonder lust;" if so, it was an
ambition that has been satisfied be-
yond degree. I have been on all the
continents, excepting Australia, and
strange to say have no desire to go
there. Probably if I had limited my
travels within the boundaries of Ma-
rion county. I would have been better
off, financially, at least.
Travel is very well for the tourist
who sees things intelligently, but for
a sailor, who has to work hard most,
if not all. oi the time, it is a different
case, or at least he cannot gain as
much by doing so.
Well ,about the Philippines! I first
came out here in 1904, but no sooner
arrived in Manila than was sent to
Mindanao, which is the second, if not
the largest, island of the Philippines.
The Morros live there, and were
"kicking up Jack" at the time. Gen-
eral Wood, as you may recollect, was
campaigning against them. I remain-
ed there almost two years, until my
enlistment was about to expire. I
thought the time would never get by,
as those Morros (Mohammedans)
were always making trouble for us.
I saw that Mohammedanism was not
near as good as Christianity, and
wrote a reverend friend in America
that if I ever got back to God's coun-
try again I would settle down, join the
church and then get married.
The time came at last for me to
sail away for the -United States. Phy-
sically speaking, I was better off for
,the experience, although that service
had been very hard on the nervous
system. Men were killed, murdered
by night wounded and taken with
sickness, and died'quite frequently,
but I was left unscathed.

On the way home, after leaving
Nagasaki, Japan, my patient, an artil-
lery captain, who had melancholia,
jumped overboard. Now, I was as
anxious to win a Carnegie medal as
the netx fellow, but it was squally
weather, and cold at that, besides the
free board of that vessel-Transport
Sherman-was almost too high for
one to enjoy taking a header. They
say a drowning person comes up three
times before they sink, but my cap-
tain did not come up at all. He went
straight down, for 1 watched him.
You naturally ask what I was doing.
Well, a woman, who had more tongue
than I had (although I have been ac-
cused of having "some" myself) let
out a yell, and then I hollered. There
was much confusion aboard; then the
whistle commenced to blow, the big
ship was put about and stopped, a
boat was lowered, which got badly
stove in on, returning, but the captain,
I knew beforehand, went straight
down to Davy Jones' locker, and I sup-
pose is there yet.
We were in Honolulu the day of the
earthquake in San Francisco (April
18, 190. We hoped the news was,
as in mast cases of that kind, badly
exaggerated, and palled that day un-
der that impression. Owing to the
currents in the Pacific, it takes longer
to go from Honolulu to the United
States than the other way. but we ar-
rived in San Francisco eight days af-
terward, and found things a great
deal worse than we had any idea of.
I saw the Hoboken fire in 1900, when
so many vesFels were burned, and felt
very sorry, but I will never forget
sailing Into the Golden Gates. April
2Sth. after that fearful holocause, as
long as I live.
On arrival there our vessel was or-
dered, to proceed to Seattle. Wash.
Oj;y some of the officers and the sick
were allowed to land. Of course, I
being in tne hospital corps, and de-
tailed with the sick. I landed with
:hem, and was sent immediately to
duty at the Presidio.
I do not like to biast, but honestly
I put in some of my best licks that
following two weeks. until the final
day for my discharge. I worked with
some of the most eminent surgeons
on the Pacific coast, in one of the
operating g rooms of the hospital. They
offered me good pay to stay. but as
the city was torn up, people living in
rents, and everything tops'-turvy in
general. I was anxious to ge ,way
irom there. During that time J n -di-
tated with myself whether I'd bu? a
ticket for Ocala, or what. I wanted
to see that place again, and only that
I received a letter from my best girl
in New York. I guess I would have
done so. even though I would not have
remained there long had I gone.
I cleared out of San Francisco as
early as I could and arrived in New
York as soon as the cars could carry

end friend." Well, he nailed me
about joining the church (he belonged
to Trinity parish). I did not think I
was in a sufficient state of spiritual
grace to take the step, but I did so
just them same. It certainly did me
no barm, and in a way known only to
myself did me considerable good, and
I have never regretted the step, even
though some of my companions who
knew me, said I was a "hypocrite on
I settled down, joined the church,
but didn't get married. I will not tell
you about that, though.

One thing always bothered me. I
had no more than got back than I
longed to return to these islands. I
thought about that more than I did of
my work. It was very cold deliver-
ing letters during the winter; icy
sidewalks, frozen feet and fingers, and
often bad falls. Taking all circum-
stances into consideration, I thought
it expedient to transfer with a carrier
at Pensacola, Fla., who wanted to
come to New York. I did not like the
idea of going to Pensacola. I had
never been in that part of the state,
knew no one there, etc., but accord-
ingly went.
On the way there I stopped off a
week at Jacksonville, which I spent
with my sister (Estelle), Mrs. R. E.
Yoneg, Jr. It had been so long since
we met, and both had changed so, that
neither knew the other. I had been
away since 1894, and my accent had
changed somewhat, but after a few
days things came out all right, and
we both began to realize the affinity
between brother and sister. I was
sorry when the time came to leave,
but I arrived in Pensacola in due time.
Some of the boys met me, treated me
fine, but after four days' working
there, I decided that letter carrying,
where sand was everywhere about six
inches deep. was not my diversion, so
I resigned, returned to Jacksonville,
from there to New York and from
there to Washington, D. C., where I
enlisted, with the understanding that
I would be sent immediately for ser-
vice in the Philippines, which con-
tract, I am pleased to say, was car-
ried out with dispatch.
I arrived January 5th, last, happy
to get back. The longer I live here
'the better I like it. I have no Inten-
tion of ever returning, at least not at
an early date, but let me say right
here, this is not the land of milk and
honey. Because I like it is no sign
that many would like it, or would
stay here once they got here.
This post is a fine place. We have
a brigade here, and I understand it is
one of the largest permanently occu-
pied garrisons of the world.
It is situated 7 1-2 miles from Ma-
nila, up the Pasig river. The street
car fare to Manila is the same number
of cents. .075. Now, you can't under-
stand about half cents, but it's neces-
sary in the Orient.
I enclose a centavo, which. is half
of one cent in United States money.
I'll send yoj some more of this brand
of money if you are interested. It
may help you to solve the financial
I saw Allan Rodgers while in Jack-
sonville. Years seemed to have made
him more optimistic and philosophical
than he naturally was when younger.
He claimed that '*the step to writing
for the press was a short, but very
dangerous one." I thought there was
something In that, and have been
pondering over it ever since.
Being a soldier., it would not be well
with me 'to be too free with my pen,
so I have resolved nevtr to use it in
any degree to attacks upon character,
and if I do that I'll be on the safe side.

about myself and the Philippines let
me know. Possibly if you suggest
something here concerning the cir-
cumstances, I could answer you very

Passing one moonlit summer's
night by a small church, the services
not yet concluded, curiosity prompted
me to pausr at the door and listen
The congregation of negroes were
of the Hard-Shell Baptist denomina-

tion, and as I stopped at the door a
new preacher mounted the pulpit. It
was then about eleven o'clock, and
the smoking lamp inside, addel to
the steaming vapor arising from the
closely packed congregation, created
altogether an atmosphere that, to say
the least, was heavy.
The nigh was intensely warm, and
the new preacher had taken off his;
coat. He was large and very black-
evidently a country darkey of the old-
time variety-and his shining face
was bare of whiskers, save for a nar-
row fringe of white kinks around the
lower part of his chin, and the per-
spiration was pouring from his bald
head. Lifting his long arms and wav-

A special from St. Petersburg, Rus-

case of lynching occurred on Sunday

Ligthed Cigarette Tfirown into Box of
Fuses Caused the Explos:on-Men
Were Working Over Big Charge
Ready for Firing

As a result of an explosion at uoon
Friday of 700 pounds of dynamite at
Boca Chica, twelve miles from Key
West, on the Florida East Coas;: rail-
way. ten men are dead, five probably
fatally and others seriously wounded,
and at least a dozen others are suf-
fering from less serious injuries. The
explosion was caused by a member of
the railroad construction force care-
lessly throwing a lighted cigarette
Into a box of fuses.
Nine of the workmen met instant
death, and the tenth died while be-
ing taken to the hospital at Key West.
The men were hurled into the air, and
the bodies of the dead were almost
beyond recognition, arms and legs be-
ing torn from the bodies of some,
while the faces of others were masses
of flesh.
When the explosion occurred the
workmen were standing in water four
feet deep, and directly beneath them
was the 700 pounds of dynamite,
ready for the blast when the men
should stop work for dinner.
According to one of the wounded, a
workman-one of the nine to meet
Instant death-threw a lighted cigar-
ette to one side, not noticing that it
fell into a box containing the fuses
which. were connected with the heavy
charges of explosives beneath them.
A few seconds, and the men, water,
mud and tons of dirt were thrown
seventy and ninety feet in the air.
Tugs at once took the dead and the
more seriously wounded to Key West,
the latter being placed in the Louise
Maloney hospital.
Those less seriously injured were
placed on Stock island, opposite Boca
Chica, and will be taken to Key West
Most of tne victims of the explosion
arrived from New York last Sunday.
The dead:
.T. Kelly. G. Surky, J. Brennan, T.
Convery. J. Gallagher, T. Linnehan,
J. Garrity. T. Travis. J. Mohor, T. Do-
ran and two unidentified.
Probably fatally injured:
James Gallagher, aged 40, Brooklyn,
. Y.
Timothy McDonald, aged 54, Black-
sack. Cork, Irel.nud.
E. Hannon, assistant foreman, aged
33. 140 Grand St., Brooklyn.
James McMahan, aged 45, 54 Fulton
St., New York.
James Sands, New York City.
Late Friday afternoon six addition-
al of the more seriously injured were
taken to the hospital at Key West.
Their injuries are not considered fa-
tal. They are:
Pat Sullivan. Green Stick, John
Mullen, Patrick Giftf, Peter Pryan and
Meekly Foley.
About fifty men were at work, all
close together, when the box of fuses
was discovered ablaze, and had it not
been for the sounding of the alarm by
the dredge Manteo it is doubtful if a
third of the men would have escaped
with their lives.


Sax Lumler Cmpany, New York,
has purchased about 10,000 acres of
timber land in Bradford and Clay
counties, Florida, and has sold the
timber in tracts to the Starke

tramroad and establish mill.



Women all over the country, espe-
cially in the south and middle west,
again owe thanks to the inventive
genius of the masculine sex for a new
and up-to-date method of transport-
ing oysters to the home just as fresh
as when they were taken from the
We say that the women of the
south and middle west should espe-
cially be grateful because in the
south the warm weather begins about
the first of April and really does not
cease until very near the middle of
October; and the middle west is so
far removed from the oyster beds
that while the summer is not so long,
the unusually long shipping trip the
oysters must take frequently becomes
a menace.
When packed in tubs of ice the
oysters invariably absorb the water,
which not only bloats them but ruins
their delicate flavor. Incidentally
they are bruised and broken by the
ice in transit, and on arrival at your
home they are certainly anything but
The oyster farmers are now culti-
vating the luscious bivalves to such
perfection in. great, clean, well-tended
beds, that the new plan of putting
them up will give the people of the
south and those of inland towns an
opportunity throughout the oyster
season to eat with safety this food
delicacy. It takes from three to five
years to mature an oyster, and always
several transplanting.
This new method is not only to
carefully select these oysters, but
place them in air-tight packages, kept
at the freezing point with ice that
does not touch them, and by this
means they are delivered as fresh as
when taken from their wet shells.
This system of growing, packing, ship-
ping and selling is the Sealshipt sys-
tem. In this manner they are pre-
served so perfectly as to retain all
their flavor and tender freshness, no
matter how far they have traveled
from their native beds.
With esl.ecial force does the infor-
mation of this new method of ship-
ping oysters come to every house-
holder. So much has been said about
oysters arJ the dangers that exist in
eating them during the wramer
months, that the traffic of them has
been really curtailed to an unusual
extent, as people have grown very
wary undte the old-time method.
Now, not cnly does the new method
remove all danger, but at the same
time brings the oysters right to the
table in an appetizing shape, and as
free from the slightest contamination
as if they were eaten at the seashore.

The Miami Metropolis says:
With such an important crop as t.he
avocado to be developed in this s83?
tion, it will be of interest and im-
jportance to learn that the plans for
the improvement of the fruit will still
remain in the hands of P. J. Weaiter,
who has been in charge of the sub-
tropical station at Miami.
An authoritative statement cones
from the bureau of plant industry to
this effect, and that the experimental
projects of the garden are to be -a:'-
ried on as heretofore, except that thL
work in the more advanced stages
will be carried on in co-operalion
with the growers, rather than central-
ized at one point.
It is believed by the department
that the work in this way will prove3
more effective, and yield quicker re
The improvement of the avocado,
mango, guava, ananaceans, and other
tropical fruits will be in charge of
Mr. Wester, with headquarters in

Washington. He will be in
during the avocado season in


tion with the work on this fruit, and
it will be to the interest of all con-
cerned in the production of the avo-
cado to communicate with him in re-
gard to seedling trees that are con-
sidered by the owner to have desira-
ble fruits, valuable either for hoire
use or for commercial purposes. The
aim of the work is to produce varie-
ties of good quality, prolonging th
avocado season as much as possible.
Attention will also be paid to the
guava this fall, the object being to
produce a type suitable for the manu-
facture of jelly, and other varie*Its
adaptable for canning purposes and
as a desert fruit.
These, as well as other tropical
fruits, will be tested at the sub-trop-
ical laboratory, and steps will be ta-
ken to propagate and disseminate
sorts that are found to be valuable.

Claude L'Engle, announced candi-
date for the United States senatorship
from this state, paid Miami a visit
yesterday. *
Considerable regret was expressed
that he did not come in the promised
way. but arrived by the ordinary
means of a railroad train.
Nevertheless, Mr. L'Engle occupied
himself by industriously circulating
his "Message to the Democratic Peo-
ple of the State of Florida," which, by
the way, is one of the best prepared
political documents that has been
sent out by a candidate in the state
for many a long day.
Whatever the press have said about
Mr. L'Engle, and it has had occasion
to say considerable, in times past, and
will probably be compelled to say
more in the future, it will be conced-
ed that Mr. L'Engle has gone about
his campaign in a dignified way, and
presents a message that will com-
mand attention.

It would be the height of folly to
treat Mr. L'Engle's candidacy as a
joke. He must be dealt with as se-
riously as any other man who goes
before the people with as carefully
prepared statement of his beliefs as
does Mr. L'Engle in his message.
He lays down three elemental
things which he believes: The peo-
ple's right to rule; the people's abil-
ity to rule; the people's determination
to rule.
Elaboratihg on these he declares
for the initiative and referendum and
the recall; direct nominations by pri-
maries; no compromise with the re-
publicans; government alone issuing
money; tariff for revenue only; the
rights of states to regulate their own
affairs, and against federal and judi-
cial usurpation.
Of course there is nothing new or
original in all this, and there is not
a single statement of belief that could
not be and is not subscribed to by
every good democrat.
But a gentleman of good appear-
ance. fine manners and an impressive
way of talking, who goes over the
state giving out so well a prepared
document as this message, is bound
to create favorable impression for
himself and make voters.
The L'Engle proposition should be
taken seriously and not treated alto-
gether as a joke-it may be loaded.-
Miami News-Record.

Slimy milk is another trouble that
is no stranger to the dairyman. It is
sometimes due to a diseased condiriln
of tbhe cow. But probably. In a ma-
jority of cases. it is probably due to
bacteria. There are numerous other
"rcubles familiar to the dairyman that
are due to bacteria, but the ab)ve are
'he commonest ones.
Practical Rules
1. Don t let any bacteria get Into
the milk if you can help it. A little
milk deposit on an imperfectly clean-
ed can may contain as many bacteria
as the population of the world. rerdyI
to infect the fresh milk.
2. Keep the milk c ol by the use
of ice, or otherwise, so that the bac-
teria can oply grow slowly.
3. If ice is not available and m'ik
has to be kept longer than usual,. pas-
teurize it by beating to 140 degrees

better.-By John H. Scott. of the Flro-

The souring of milk i de to the
growth of bSeteria. acterls are
found In large nnmben In the air we
breathe, the water we drink, and in
the food we eat. But most of these
bacteria are harmless. The special
bacteria which have most to do with
the souring of milk are found nearly
everywhere. They cannot be seen
without a microscope. One drop of
milk may contain as many as 100,000,-
000. From this it is easy to under-
stand why we cannot see them as in-
dividuals. However. the practical
dairyman does not require the practi-
cal assistance of a high-power micro-
scope to determine whether or not he
has undesirable bacteria about hisc
dairy. The rapidity with which they
multiply soon makes their presence
known. Under favorable conditions
of food and temperature, bacteria will
double in number every half hour.
Fresh milk furnishes ideal conditions
for the growth and development of
many kinds of bacteria. It is for this
reason that their effect on milk Is so
quickly noticed.
How to Control Bacteria
Most of the bacteria that require
the attention of the dairyman grow
and multiply best at a temperature of
80 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Some
will grow even at the low temperature
of 35 to 40 degrees Farhenheit, but
their growth is then much slower. A
temperature of 135 to 145 degrees F.,
for a few minutes will destroy the
greater number of bacteria. Howev-
er, there are a few that can withstand
a considerably greater heat. A com-
plete sterilization will require a tem-
perature of about 220 degrees F., for a
few minutes.
Cleanliness is the only way to pre-
vent bacterial contamination-cleanli-
ness not only in the dairy barn, but
also with regard to the dairy utensils
and the milker himself. After the
milk is drawn, the temperature should
be lowered as quickly as possible to
about 40 degrees F. This low temper-
ature retards the growth of bacteria,
and the milk will keep sweet for a
longer period.
How Bacteria Affect Milk
There are many changes brought
about in milk that are due to the ac-
tion of different bacteria. The most
common change is the souring and
curdling of the milk. The rapidity
with which milk sours, at a given
temperature, depends upon the num-
ber of bacteria present. The number
of bacteria in the milk depends upon
the conditions under which the milk
is drawn and kept. As stated above,
bacteria grow faster at summer tem-
perature (80 to 100 degrees). Hence
if milk is kept at or near this temper-
ature, the bacteria will develop rap-
idly, and the milk will sour in a few
We often hear that the milk has a
disagreeable flavor. This flavor is
also imparted to the butter. Such oc-
currences are annoying. However, in
the greater number of cases, sour or
badly flavored milk is due to neglect
or carelessness. Milk when drawn
from healthy cows is, under normal
conditions, free from these objection-
able features. If it is kept under
Roperr conditions it will remain sv;eet
'or a considerable length of time.
When first drawn, milk may have
no ill flavor, but after standing for a
few hours may develop a disagreea-
b!y bitter taste. This is not always
due to bacteria. Improper feeding, or
1he use of certain feeds, such as on-
ions or turnips, is often the caus. of

tains the following interesting weath-
er items:
Within the past twenty-four hours
four inches of rain has fallen, making
a total for the month of August of
thirteen inches.
The rainfall in this vicinity since
the first of March is eight inches
abo7e normal.
These facts were ascertained at the
weather bureau at noon today, and
to further strengthen the statements
of the "oldest inhabitant" that this
is the rainest season for years, the
Times had Assistant Weather Observ-
er Cowdrick delve into the archives
of the department and bring forth a
bunch of statistics to show what the
rainfall has been for some years past.
The rainfall since 1891 has been as
follows, for years: 44.46, 46.66, 48.96,
66.93, 50.64, 69.63, 54.41, 50.53, 63.82,

51.83. 43.45, 32.25, and for the past
eight months, 42.81.
The heaviest rainfall in eight years
was in 1899, when 63.82 inches fell.
The smaller. rainfall in the same time
was last year, when but 32.25 inches
There has now fallen ten inches

When the summer's in its glory,
And the silver moon ashine,
Then we think of things connected

The first flying "meet" in the his-
tory of the world is an event of more
than ordinary interest. There have
been many ballooning contests, some-
times with a dozen or 'rwe z o p-i.-I

tors ready to go where the wind
might drive; but the gathering at
Itheims t' :s week is the fG.; : :r. 1-
S-It for L rvier-than-air lying us:-
chines, built to breast the wind and
hold a stated course. The flight for
the World's prize at the Hudson-Ful-
ton celebration will be the first in
the New World.
Hereafter events may move fast
and the marvelous soon become the
commonplace, as has so often hap-
pened. Yet a little while the sense
of awe will linger. Few can real un-
moved of that sight, now in the his-
tory of invention, when the eye of a
spectator a-: Rheims could for the
first time se : half a dozen winged men
wheeling and swooping like birds in
the air, which human beings from
Adam down have yearned to invade.
Something lPke this must have been
the sensation of watching Fulton's
Clermont creep without sail against
the Hudson tide, or of seeing the first
locomotive engine hauling its train of
little cars.
In the end man has learned to fly
by forgetting the balloon and watch-
ing the birds. It is true that Zeppelin
and others have shown what can be
done by propelling cigar-shaped bal-
loons through the air, but the cnor-
mous size and cost of such airships
and the difficulty of landing them
seem likely to restrict their number
The cheap little aeroplane is elss ex-
acting. And whether it be monoplane
or bi-plane, snd whatever its odd and
sprawling shape, it soars as a bird
does. Unlike the bird, it does in t
need to flap its wings to keep on soar-'
ing. The little auto engine furnish-
es the impetus. So some inventrsa
have called the bird a faulty mon -
plane that gets tired.
They were perhaps hasty. The oir:
has still the best of it; even litt!,
songsters can cross wide seas in tht.r
annual migrations as man has not ye'
done, but the time may come whc a
the flying machine will tire out lb,
