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.

Colonel John M. Martin says that he
recently viLited Blue Sink, where
young Clyde Aiken was drowned. He
says that i, is a very curious forma-
tion of nature. It is located in the
open pine woods. There is no growth
of trees or vines or any of the usual
signs to indicate that there is any
water in the neighborhood. Suddenly
you come upon a basin of water even
with the earth, perhaps covering
about half an acre of ground, with
apparently no inlet nor outlet. The
water is blue, and it has been sounded
to a depth of 280 feet without reach-
ing bottom. It seems just to be there
-that's all.


Blitchton, Fla., Sept. 13, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Since the tragic death of our boy,
Clyde. on the 5th inst., our hearts
have been filled with sorrow and our
lives with gloom. From the hour
Clyde disappeared in the waters of
Blue Sink loving friends and kind
neighbors have not ceased efforts, day
and night, to recover the drowned
boy, for which we extend our pro-
found appreciation.

One of the most unostentatious and
unpretentious young men in Ocala is
Mr. Emanuel Martin. of the law firm
of Davis and Martin, so his friends
were not surprised to learn that he
had slipped away and quietly married.
The bride is Miss Nellie Gordon and
the happy event occurred at her pa-
rents' home at Largo last Friday. Mr.
Martin's friends are showering him
with an abundance of good wishes. He
was a student at the Ocala High
School and also attended Stetson. He
has a fine legal mind and great things
are expected of him. He has at least
started out right, and those who do
rarely go wrong. This paper extends
its congratulations and best wishes.

noted for being the largest (and for a
time the best kept) of any in the
state, yet while other towns have
reached us and perhaps outstripped
us in the hotel line, we understand
that a movement is on foot which will
again place Ocala in the vanguard of
interior towns in this respect. It may
be ncted .,ere that nothing adds more
to the reputation and growth of a
town than well-kept hotels.
Ocala's court house, lawn and pub-
lic square are the admiration of ev-
ery .isitor and her store buildings
will hold their own with any interior
town in Florida, and is surpassed by
few of the bigger cities.
Ocala's government building occu-
pies an entire block, and while the
building is without ornamental frills,
flounces or furbelows, it is a most
substantial structure. Including the
cellar, which will be utilized for the
distribution of the mails, it is four
stories. The grounds will be beauti-
fully kept and well provided with ce-
ment walks.
Ocala is constantly extending her
business along the lines of wholesale
She now has very large iron works,
foundry and machine shops, several
garage establishments, two ice plants,
two lumber and planing mills, a large
crate factory, several wholesale feed,
grain and grocery establishments, two
bottling wodks, lime works, and a fer-
tilizer factory is in progress of con-
We have two cement block plants,
two daily and two weekly newspapers
and one agricultural monthly that
keeps the town fairly well advertised.
Making notable improvements along
many lines Ocala has made more im-
provements in the number, style and
finish of her residences, her lawns,
flower gardens, cement sidewalks and
stone copings than in anything else.
Ocala's residential section will now
compare favorably with, and in all
possibility are handsomer than that
of any other town of its size in Flor-
ida. and this is largely because she
has so many beautiful building sites.
Like Rome, she sits upon an hill and
is surrounded by other hills and the
apex of these hills and the undula-
tions following them present many
beautiful building spots.
Wten some Columbus from the
bleak regions of the north discovers
Ocala and lets its beauty and situa-
tion become known to those who
want to build homes in our salubrious
climate Ocala ought to become far
more famed than Daytona in this re-.
gard, because naturally Ocala is more
hilly, unduting and beautiful.
Besides the handsome residences
Ocala already boasts, she is building
others and the music of the saw and
hammer goes merrily on.
Mr. Clifton Camp is building one of
the most modern style residences
known to architects on Camp Heights,
which will be the fourth one this fam-
ily has erected or modernized in that
beautiful part of our city.

as it will be the only building of the
kind in the city, and presents a very
handsome and attractive finish.
Mr. Maynard, who recently pur-
chased the McDonald residence on
Camp Heights, has enlarged it to al-
most double its size and converted it
into a most attractive home.
Mrs. Berry, daughter of Mr. Hinton,
who keeps the ferry on the Oklawaha
river, has just completed a very nice
home on Orange avenue and South
Sixth street, and will soon occupy it.
She comes to Ocala to give her chil-
dren the benefit of our high school,
which enjoys a reuptation co-exten-j
sive with the county.
Mr. Louis R. Chazal has just com-
pleted a very attractive cottage, built
of cement blocks; Judge Bullock in
the same locality, a very lovely frame
cottage, and Mr. L. Gamsby a com-
modious home in the same neighbor-
hood, and Mr. Coleman has made new
a building on Watula street.
The government building Is nearing
completion, the foundations for the
new opera house and Masonic temple
have been laid, Mr. R. L. Anderson is
erecting two fine store buildings, and

Died, on the 8th day of September.
at 4:10 p. m., Willie Lee Godwin, the
only child of Mr. and Mrs. Godwin, of
Falrfeld. Little Willie was eight
years of age when he passed away,
having suffered nearly two weeks. His
struggle, with the aid of most effici-
ent medical skill and tender and vig-
ilant nursing, was overcome by death,
and the life that made Itself so dear
to all of us was carried away to those
realms of bliss to receive an eternal
crown. Little Willie was a vivacious
and lovely child, always seen with
a happy smile, denoting a cheerful,
willing, winning and dutiful disposi-
tion. Sorrow in losing our little
friend cannot be expressed in words.
It is more keenly seen and felt in the
subdued hush at mention of little Wil-
But what of the parents, whose only
child he was. Alas! We can but leave
them to the infinite mercy of that
Omnipotent Being who, in his own
mysterious way and time can and
will heal the crushed and broken
hearts that are now enduring agony.
May God hear this prayer:

We miss little Willie. and his cheery
We miss his sweet smile, as the flow-
ers miss he dew;
We miss his gentle footsteps, we miss
his blight gaze,
As our hearts used to greet him in
other days.
Do we rebel, because we demur?

will understand what a convenience
such a room is after a long drive. The

tion to Madison and other towns that
are desirous of increasing their coun-
try trade. Such a room could be built
and equipped at a very small cost by
the merchants coming together and
contributing to the cause. It would
prove a wonderful drawing card for

assert that its presence would prove a
wonderful incentive to increased

Special Cor. Ocala Banner:
The Dunnellon Methodist church,
south, was the scene of most interest-
ing and profitable services on last
Sabbath. FProm early morning till
late in the evening the popular and
energetic pastor, Rev. J. L. Folsom,
was busy. During the summer heat
the Sunday school has lost heavily by
Superintendent Ross leaving town,
also by illness, vacations and family
removals, but is already picking up
as the times look brighter, weather
gets cooler, and the people take cour-
age, and last Sunday began the in-
crease of interest. Mrs. Austin, (nee
Sanders), a former Dunnellon girl
and teacher, was present and took
part in the morning service. She
and Mrs. Webb sang impressively a
lovely duet, and also the latter, being
the organist, rendered a splendid vol-
untary. Then the pastor spoke on
"The Parable of the Unjust Steward,"
and received marked attention from
the beginning of his deep and inter-
esting sermon. He told the people
that often this parable was misunder-
stood and overloaded, but that the
Master was teaching but one great
lesson, that being to convert our
worldly goods into heavenly values,
"where they are laid up as treasures,
where moth and rust do not corrupt,
or thieves break through and steal."
It was a beautiful lesson, full of val-
uable truths and wonderfully portray-
ed in a simple, yet profound manner,
Immediately following was the
Lord's supper, and almost every Chris-
tian in the house partook in loving
harmony, making a most impressive
scene, never to be forgatte,. as repre-
sentatives of several nominationion;
remembered Him together.
Later, at 4 p. m., there WBs< bdpti'm
by immersion at the river, where
again God's people lifted tl,eir hearts
in tenderness and thankfulness to
their Maker.

At 7:30 sharp the church was wel!
filled and services ope'*-d as the peo-
ple heartily helped to sing inspiring
songs from "Tilman's Sundry School
and Revival." A fine chorus ,:isi)( s-
ed two splendid selections. A duet
by Mesdames Webb and Austin, as-
sisted by the choir, was another fei-
ture, and Mrs. Folsom's splendid ren-
dition of Gilbert's "City Beautiful"
touched every heart, as her full. cul-
tivated tones invited everyone to
come to this city beautiful.
Then followed the most eloquent
sermon the pastor has ever delivered
in Dunnellon-"The Peculiar Young
Man." His earnestness and eloquence
combined with logical conclusions ca --
ried his audience with him to the end.
until he closed by telling how M?-
phbosheth was found in his peculiar
broken-limbed condition and brought
as he was to sit around the king's ta-
ble continually, proving that we may
all be present at the heavenly banquet
around our King's table, reigning wi'h
him forever, when hardly a dry eye
could be observed in the house.
It was the crowning part of a glo-
rious Sabbath. Just before closing
Mr. Folsom took in one person by let-
ter and candidates on probation, and
we understand he holds several other
church letters and has more to ban-
tize as soon as health is restored to
the applicants.
Long live Methodism in Dunnellon,
and may the beloved Dr. Folsom he
spared many years to live among his
Rev. and Mrs. J. L. Folsom have
been spending the entire week in Dun-
nellon, visiting and calling among th.
people, inspiring and urging them on
to more faithful work towards a vict )-
rious year.

Our beloved 31. E. pastor was cali-
ed to Holder to attend the funeral )t
the infant child of Mr. Prater la.-t
Wednesday. Great sympathy is ex-
pressed for the bereaved parents.

al days in our city, ihe guest of h.r,

But If the prize is relyso great
why are there so few contestants?
Simply because It Isa cmnmn ly, but
erroneously, thought that the require-
ments must. be terribly high. The
qual~fylag mtmbtutioni is more sim-
ple tian the ordinary college entrance
eamination. formerly it was ne-
esary to take: 1. Greek Grammar
and one author (usually Xenophon).
Latin grammar, prose and one au-
thor (aually Caesar). &. Arithme-
tic and either algebra or geometry;
but now, owing to the fact that so
few Americanms are studytag Greek,
it is made optional whether or not to
take it. And so now the awmlinmtlons
may be taken on merely the latin and
mathematcs. Then, after the stu-
dent has been elected to the schol-
arship, he will be required to study
up the Greek before entering Oxford.
As there are about nine months be-
tween the date'of getting the appoint-
ment and going to Oxford, ample tihee
is aforded to get up the Greet .and
who would not be willing t,. study
Greek a short while If he was assured
of $1500 a year for three years .thr-

Senator Yulee's Granddaughter
An engagement which is of deep in-
terest in Florida is that of Miss Yulee
Noble, daughter of Mrs. William Bel-
den Noble, of Washington, and grand-
daughter of the late Senator Yulee of
Florida, to Lieut. Sherman Miles, son
of Gen. Nelson A. Miles. The wed-
ding will be one of the most important
society events of October in Wash-
Miss Noble made her debut season
before last, and is one of the charm-
ing young women in Washington. She
is dainty, picturesque and talented,
with a fascinating personality.
Miss Noble has spent a great part
of her life abroad and speaks several
languages fluently. With her mother
she has been spending the summer
at Bar Harbor and at their camp in
the Adirondacks. Lieutenant Miles
is stationed at Fort Myer. He is a
graduate of West Point, and is an all
round favorite.
Florida friends of Mrs. Noble, for-
merly Miss Yulee, of Fernandina, will
be greatly interested in this brilliant
marriage for her daughter.
* *
Of interest throughout the states
wherever the name of Joel Chandler
Harris is known, will be the an-
nouncement of the engagement of his
daughter, Mildred, to Mr. Edwin
Camp, formal announcement of which
is made by Mrs. Harris. The marriage
will take place on October 27th. No
cards. Of the event the Atlanta Jour-
nal says:
"In literary and social life this an-
nouncement will be of wide social in-
terest, as Miss Harris is the second
daughter of the late distinguished ed-
itor, autho- and philosopher, Joel
Chandler Harris (Uncle Remus) and
is one of the group of little ones to
whom the great writer told many of
the stories which afterwards, trans-
lated into twenty-seven different lan-
guages, delighted children the world
over. She is the sister of Mr. Evelyn
Harris, Mr. Lucien Harris, Mr. Joel
Chandler Harris, Jr., and of Mr. Ju-
lian Harris, who succeeds his father
as editor of the Uncle Remus Maga-
"Mr. Camp at present holds the re-
sponsible position of managing editor
of the Atlanta Georgian, and is rank-
ed among the foremost Journalists of
the south. He is a graduate of the
University of Georgia, and one of the
most highly esteemed of Atlanta's
younger citizens.


Wake up. The call comes swift and
From factory and mart;
The early bird has taught you well
To get an early start.
Dream if yot will, dream if you must,
But it you fain would thrive,
You've got to hammer at the forge,
You've got to be alive.
-Joe Cone, in Boston Herald.

The many friends of Rev. W. H.
Dodge will regret to learn that he has
finished his temporary engagement at
tne First Presbyterian church in this
city, where he has been preaching for
the past six weeks.
Mr. Dodge leaves here for St. Au-
gustine, where he will visit his broth-
ti, J. P. Dodge. for a week, and will
t'll the pulpit of the Flagler Memorial
church next Sunday. He will then re-
turn to Ocala, where he is now per-
nianently located as the pastor of the
first Presbyterian church in that city.

has been extensively repaired and ad
ded to, a stcne fence, stone steps and
a cement sidewalk being among the
improvements. The house has been
freshly painted and a bored well is
being sunk. The house on the north-
east corner of the lot has been re-

Dr. H. Btiles Bradley, formerly pas-
toer of the Trinity Methodist church of
Adanta. has accepted a call from the
Pledmont Congregational Society of
Worcester, Mass., and his doing so
has brought about some criticism.
Dr. Bradley says that some things
about the government of the Metho-
dist church has been somewhat irk-
some to him, one of which is the
breaking up of home every four years.
The unlimited pastorate of the Con-
gregatlonal church offers an induce-
ment to a minister to plan for larger
He says that the chief conspicuous
difference between the Methodist and
Congregational churches is the form
of government. The Methodist, be
contends, began under a monarchy
and continues to preserve the mon-
archical form. It is highly centraliz-
ed. In the matter of assignment of
preachers the voice of the bishop is
supreme. The voice of the congrega-
tions carry little or no weight as the
bishop pleases. Having so much pow-
er lodged in the hands of one man
there is always danger of the abuse
of that power-even bishops are hu-
The Congregational church, Dr.
Bradley contends, is purely democrat-
ic in its form of government Each
congregation is supreme in itself. Its
independence makes possible dissocia-
tion, which is its weakness, but this
is being corrected by a pronounced
movement for fuller associational
work in al! the Congregational socie-
ties of the United States.
Dr. Bradley's successor of the Trin-
ity Methodist church of Atlanta, Dr.
Lee, in discussing Dr. Bradley's going
over to the Congregational church,
"My father was a planter down in
Gwinnett county, Georgia. He was ac-
customed to prepare sweet potato
beds every spring, not only sufficient
to plant his own ground, but also
enough to furnish the neighbors not
so thrifty around him with slips to set
out their patches. The Methodist
Episcopal church is the ecclesiastical
sweet potato bed of all the denomina-
tional patches of the country. She
grows enough religious slips for her
own territory and besides a sufficient
number for those regions of the
Lord's plantation not able to grow
them for themselves.
"It is no reflection upon my father
as a farmer that he produced enough
slips for his own patches and enough
over for the grounds of Nis neighbors.
Instead of its being an evidence of
Methodist weakness to furnish minis-
ters to other denominations, it is a
striking illustration of the church's
remarkable vitality and fertility.
"I made a study some years ago on
the contribution of Methodism to the
pulpits of other denominations. To
my amazement I learned that more
than 50 per cent. of the conspicuous
pulpits in America outside of her own
had been supplied with ministers of
the Methodist Episcopal church. New
York City has been run by Methodist
Episcopal preachers for 50 years.
Count them. Of the past generation,
Dr. Thomas Armnnitage, the great Bap-
tist; Dr. Robert Collier, the great Uni-
,tarlan, and of the present. Rev. Dr. S.
P. Cadman, pastor o? the leading
Brooklyn Congregational church;
Rev. Dr. McGee Waters, pastor of the
Tompkins Avenue Congregational
church, with the largest membership
of any in that denomination; Rev.
Dr. Carles E. Jefferson, pastor of the
Broadway Tabernacle, New York;
Rev. Dr. Tiffany, archdeacon of the
Episcopal church at New York.
Where They All Come From
"When I was in St. Louis several
years ago I found that the pastor of
the leading Presbyterian church was
an ex-Methcdist, Rev. Dr. George E.
Martin, the pastor of the leading Con-
gregational church, was an ex-Meth-
odist. Rev. Dr. Joseph Henry George,
pastor of the leading Christian church,

was an ex-Methodist, Rev. Dr. Tyrell,
pastor of the leading Episcopal
church, was an ex-Methodist, and once
a member ot the Georgia conference,
Rev. Dr. Robert Afton Holland, now
professor of philosophy at the Univer-
sity of the South, the bishop of the
Episcopal church in St. Louis, was an
ex-Methodist. Rev. Dr. Daniel Tuttle,
the bishop that preceded him was an
ex-Methodist. Rev. Dr. Roberts.
"Not only the leaders, but the lesser
pulpits were largely supplied from
the Methodist Episcopal church. It is
all right. John Wesley said: 'The
world was his parish,' and so the
Methodist Episcopal church is taking
the world, either through her own ec-
clesiastical organization or through
those with other names. The army is
the Lord's. The Methodists ought to
be satisfied to furnish the captains
xnd the general to command them."

the president of

the senate, who was a lawyer of great
prominence, and who was recognized
as the leader of one of the warring
factions, filed into the executive of-
fice. He made a strong appeal to the
governor in behalf of the young man,
and carried public sentiment with him
almost overwhelmingly.
The governor's answer was antici-
pated the next morning, but that night
he quietly left the state, and the law-
yer who made such an eloquent plea
in the condemned man's behalf be-
came governor by virtue of his office
as president of the senate, and the
young man and his friends, of course,
expected clemency, but the acting gov-
ernor suddenly became as unyielding
to their prayers as adamant.
He said that when he made the plea
for the young man's life he did so as
a private citizen, but as governor of
the state his position had been revers-
ed. That he was now governor and
was sworn to execute the laws; that
the young had had a fair and im-
partial trial by a jury of his peers;
the court of last resort had sustained
the finding of the lower court; that
no substantial reason had been given
why the verdict of the jury should be
set aside, except the one of mercy
proceeding from the fact that the un-
fortunate young man was a member
of a prominent, gentle and refined
family, which was not sufficient to
overcome the demands of justice, and
his execution quickly followed.
Governor Brown of Georgia was re-
cently placed almost in a similar po-
sition in the case of W. H. Mitchell,
of Thomasville, who was convicted of
abduction, and a strong plea was
made for executive clemency by his
neighbors, friends and the press of
the state, but without avail.
In writing of Governor Brown's re-
fusal to invoke the power of his office
in behalf of Mitchell, Editor Pendle-
tion of the Macon Telegraph, a
member of the faction to which he be-
longs, comments upon the action of
Georgia's governor and the delicate
position in which he was placed as
"Should the clemency asked for in
the present case be extended, there is
grave danger that it would bear fruits
of sorrow in every section of our
state. It would set an example per-

nicious beyond campare, an example
embodying a daily menace to Geor-
gia's womanhood. It would say that
we have one law for the rich, another
for the poor; one law for the highly
education, another for the poor, to en-
joy the privileges and immunities con-
sistent upon education; one law for
the classes, another for the masses.
"I would that the ordeal of deciding
this case were not upon me. My heart
bleeds for the gentle and refined fam-
ily of this one whom the jury of his
peers has declared guilty of the mad
act which has plunged them into the
slough of sorrow."
These are a part of the words em-
ployed by Governor Brown in his writ-
ten decision in the noted Mitchell
The editor of the Telegraph has
been closely related )y the ties of
friendship of many years to "the gen-
tle and refined family" who were
brought down in sorrow by this re-
markable, and to us, unfathomable
case; and he, as earnestly as he knew
how, asked the pardon board to com-
mute the sentence to a fine. "The
springs of sympathy," as the govern-
or said, "were well-night exhausted."
But the chief executive occupied a
different position, and we realize that
the responsibility brought to him a
keener sense in holding the balances.
It cannot be denied that the evidence,
the verdict and the judgment of the
court made a case that could not be
assailed; and yet there are those of
us who cannot grasp it, except on the
theory of insanity. Nevertheless the
governor takes the highest ground
with the greatest courage. We believe
that be would have tempered justice
with mercy if he could have seen his
way to do so.
It is a case that will go into history.
Claude L'Engle is a born newspaper
man, and he should be at the head of
some established newspaper in a
growing town.

The Tampa Times says that if the
story be true that ex-Governor Brow-
ard cleaned up $50,000 on the Ever-
glades land deal, it is conclusive that
he will be a candidate for the senate
before the primaries when the time
comes.-Ocala Banner.

When two or three gather together
and consolidate their holdings for the
starting of some new industrial enter-
prise, the end of which is for the de-
velopment of the resources of the
country and the giving of employment
to labor, it does not excite the hostil-
ity of government and confiscatory
laws do not follow.
We take it, however, that there are
as many "cranks" in England as
there are in the United States, but
they do not get into office over there,
and are in a measure harmless.
We grieve to say it, but the matter
with the United States just now is
that the state legislatures and the na-
tional congress are suffering from a
plethoria of misguided and misdirect-
ed "reformers."

tention to the sad fate that has befal-

cell, and a printer some months be-
fore who committed suicide in the jail
here by cutting off one of his hands
and then severing his jugular vein.
This brings to mind also the deaths
of Hamilton Jay and Sam B. Russ,
both of whom died in obscure board-
ing houses in Jacksonville in squalor
and want. They both held positions
on the Times-Union, and were perhaps
two of the most brilliant men in the
newspaper service in Florida when in
possession of their mental faculties.
Both were poets as well as prose writ-
ers, and their diction was as smooth
and graceful as Addison's.-Ocala
Banner. We can add three more to
that list. Several years ago Richards.
formerly telegraph editor on the New
Orleans Picayune, set type for a time
on the Ocala Banner, and while sick
started to walk to High Springs. A
few miles out he left the track and
laid down under a tree, where he
died. Whei found, hogs had eaten
his head from his body. Tony Denier
afterwards worked on the Banner, and
it was there we saw him last. When
he left Ocala he started north, and
his dead body was found on the bank
of the Sant. Fe river, two miles from
High Springs. His home was in
Charleston, S. C. Rube Smith, only
a few years ago, worked on the Ban-
ner and Baptist Witness, and whiL'
en route to his home in Richmond,
Va., went to a farm house near Mad-
ison, Fla., fqr a drink of water, and
died there. All three were far above


The Income Tax League, which was
in session at Albany, N. Y., last Sat-
urday, adopted the Bryan resolution
anent the income tax amendment to
the constitution of the United States.
The amendment follows:
"Whereas. Our federal constitution.
as construed by the supreme court.
prohibits the collection of an Incompe
tax except in a very restricted form;
"Whereas, An income tax is not
only just, but may, in time of war or
other emergency, become imperative-
ly necessary; and,
"Whereas. President Taft recom-
mended the adoption of an amend-
ment to the constitution, specially au-
thorizing the collection of such tax;
"Whecras, Such an amendment has,
by a unanimous vote in the senate
and by an almost unanimous vote in
the house, been submitted to the
states for ratification; therefore.
"Resolved, That we, the members
of the Income Tax League of the state
of New York, heartily favor the rati-
fication of the said income tax amend-
ment and pledge ourselves and our
organization to use every honorable
means to secure such ratification by
the legislature of the state of New
York at its next session, and, further,
"Resolved, That we urge all voters
who favor the ratification of such in-
come tax amendment to publicly
pledge all candidates for the state leg-
islature to vote for the ratification of
such an income tax amendment."


No one can travel over Florida
without being impressed with the
many advantages it offers to the cap-
italist, the home-seeker and the immi-
grant. In fact, nowhere else does
there exist such a combination of
conditions so favorable to health,
comfort, happiness and wealth. She
is the greatest cigar manufacturing
state in the Union, and one of the
greatest naval stores and yellow pine
producing states, her fruits are fam-
ed in the markets of the world, and
there is no better section for the ral-s
ing of cotton and other staple crops.
If the farmers in the cold climates of
the north and west could see the poe-
sibilities here it would be but a short
time until all the arable land within
her borders would be under cultiva.

Left New York July 1908.
The latest Peary expedition set out
trom New York on July 6. 1906. in the
stsamer Rooevelt, which had been
thoroughly equipped to force her way
through the Ie floes of the north.
Peary joined the ship at Sydney on
July 17. Forty guests of the Peary
Arctic club and Mrs. Peary boarded
the Roosevelt and sailed as far as City
Island. N. Y., and returned to New
York later on the navy tug Narketta.
"If I do not find the pole this time I
will never try again." was the parting
message from Peary to the world.
Never before had the arctic explorer

A second dispatch, forwarded by the

ing collided with an Iceberg and hav-
ing sustained serious damage. Cap-
tain Bartlett n the same message also
reported that Peary's steamer, the

patch follows:
Collided iceberg Monday night. Dam-
age serious. Proceeding along shore.
Roosevelt left Etah Aug. 17. Prospects of
success good.
What Peary Feared Mot
Peary went prepared to encounter
much open water. That was a handi-
cap he greatly feared. as dogs and
sledges cannot cross and have to make
long detours around the open water
after the vessel is left behind.
On his present expedition Mr. Peary
announced that be would take a route
from Grant Land more to the west and
not so directly north as that of his
former attempt, heading almost as far
as the eightleth meridian of longitude
and thus compensating for the east-
ward ice drift. He planned to estab-
lish his last base on a newly found Is-
land northwest of Grant Land. Peary
based great hopes on the results to be
obtained by following the arctic car-
The advantage of this route o that It
allows a base of supplies approximate-
ly a hundred miles nearer the goal
than the Spitsbbergen base, where has
been its chief rival.
Peary's friends for several weeks
past had been expressing a belief that
he had already reached his goaL
Before he set out some one asked
Peary what the discovery of the pole
would mean. He gave with charac-
teristic enthusiasm this answer:
"It is to open up 8.000,000 square
miles of absolutely unknown regions.
The race is both sentimental and
moral, and If we win we will be vic-
torlous In the greatest contest ever en-
gaged in by nations wherein there
was no jealousy."
Although tbe figures given by Dr.
Cook make his discovery of the pole

antedate that of Peary by nearly a
year, apparently Commander Peary
will be the first to land on American
soil and receive the plaudits of his
countrymen. If the commander comes
on at once he should reach New York
by rail from Sydney in a few days.
Dr. Cook does not plan to sail from
Copenhagen till Sept. 23. He will to
that case not reach New York till
nearly a month after his rival.
Career of Commander PeMry.
Commander Peary has made several
arduous trips Into the arctic Ice.
He was born at Cresson Springs, Pa..
in" May. 1856 He entered the navy In
1881. His first polar experience was
acquired in 1886, when be made a rec-
onnolssance of the Greenland Inland

In 1900 the census reported 5,739,-
657 farms in the United States, an
increase of 1,175,016 over the census
of 1890. At the same rate of increase
it is estimated that the total number
of farms in the United States should
now reach S,914,673. Roughly speak-
ing, it is safe to say that there are
now 6,000,000 farms in Uncle Sam's
domnions. In 1900 there were 10,433,-
288 males and females over ten years
of age engaged in agricultural pur-
slits. It is now estimated that the
number will exceed those figures by
several millions. The magnitude of
these figures emphasize the impor-
tance of this industry and how de-
pendent the country is upon it. The
census enumerators next year will be
required to obtain the following in-
The value of each farm. Each farm-
er will be asked to give the acreage,
quantity produced and value of each
crop, including grains, hay, vegeta-
bles, fruit, cotton, tobacco, etc., raised
on the farm in the season of 1909.
Each farmer will be asked to report
the number and value of all domestic
animals, poultry and swarms of bees
on the farm April 15, 1910; also the
number ani value of young animals,
such as calves, colts, lambs, pigs, and
of young fowls, such as chickens, tur-
keys, ducks, etc., raised on the farm
in 1909. He will be further asked to
state the number and kind of animals
sold during 1909 and the receipts from
such sales, the number purchased and
the amount paid therefore, and also
the number slaughtered for food, and
the value of such animals.
The law requires a report of the
number of cows kept for dairy pur-
poses in 1909, and the total estimated
amount of milk produced on the farm,
also the amount of butter and cheese
sold and the amount received from
such sale.
In addition to the inquiry regarding
animals, etc., on the farm April 15,
1910, as explained previously, the
census will seek to ascertain the quan-
tity and value of all eggs, honey and
wax produced on the farm in 1909.
Of the expenditures of the farm,
the census schedule will call for a
statement of the amount paid farm
labor, the amount paid for feed for
live stock and the amount expended
for fertilizers in 1910.
If the farm changes owners or ten-
ants between the crop year, 1909, and
the date of enumeration, April 15,
1910, it is requested that the occupant
of the farm in 1910 shall secure the
above information relating to the
farm for the preceding year, 1909. The
owner or tenant this year should
leave his book record with his suc-


Mrs. M. E. Gill of Richmond, Va.,
is now known as Cupid's first lieuten-
ant. She has inaugurated a system
of nuptial excursions by bunching the
newly weds, obtaining cheap excur-
sion rates to Washington and chaper-
oning them. A recent dispatch says:
About a dozen couples made up the
party this time. The brides and
bridegrooms were gathered from all
parts of Virginia and under Mrs. Gill's
chaperonage came to the capital to-
day. Licenses were procured attend-
ant upon all of the moneymoon for-
malities, and the newly weds proceed-
ed to enjoy the town.



"Having lived in New Zealand all
my life, with the exception of a few
childhood years in Scotland, I am nat- a
urally inclined to think that ours is
the choicest spot of creation, the ver-
itable God's country." said David Pe-
trie, a prosperous merchant of Auck-
land, N. Z., at the Stafford hotel. "As
to climate, I think we have the rest
of the world beaten to a finish. I left
home last June, which is the second
month of our winter season, and it
is a rare thing for the thermometer
to register below 46 degrees during
that cr the succeeding winter months.
In October it begins to get warmer,
but in the hottest season, January,
February and March, the average
temperature, year after year, Is
around 64 degrees. Thus it is that
our people do not know any extremes
of heat or cold, and we wear the same
weight of clothing all the year round.
The rainfall is invariably sufficient,
and it is nearly always equally dis-
tributed, so that the farmers can
count on getting moisture as they
need it.
"New Zealand is one of the young-
est countries, considering that its
civilization only goes back to 1848,
and yet it has made greater strides
in the science of government than
any other political division in the
world. We were first in having wo-
man suffrage, old-age pensions, com-
nulsory arbitration of labor disputes,

From Saturday's Daily:
After an illness of only a few days
Mrs. Norton Edwards passed awayj
yesterday afternoon at her home a
few miles from this city.
Her death is particularly sad as she
leaves a husband and three small chil-
dren to mourn her loss.
She was a daughter-in-law of Mrs.
Judson Edwards of this city, and the
funeral will be held from the home of
Mrs. Judeon Edwards this afternoon
at four o'clock.
Mrs. Edwards was reared in Savan-
nah, Ga., but has lived in Marion
county for several years, and by her
sweet, gentle manner always made
friends rapidly, and her death is
mourned not only by her relatives, but
by a large number of friends through-
out the county.

Mr. W. J. May, who has been con-
ducting the Marion county poor farm
at Kendrick for some months, was in
Ocala Saturday on his way to Tampa.
After spending a few weeks at the
Gulf City he will go to Dolphos, Kan..
where his family is now on a visit.
They will remain in Kansas for some
weeks before returning home.

Witherspoon Dodge, who has been
visiting college friends at Davklson
College, Davidson, N. C., has gone to
Camden, S. C., where he will be prin-
cipal of the school at that place. This
is quite a battering position for one
so young, and Mr. Dodge's friends
congratulate him and wish him suc-

The colleges will claim a larger
number of Ocala boys and girls than
usual this year. Some will take the
regular collegiate course, some will fit

Three of Ocala's brightest young
girls will be at Washington Seminary

It had won its way into the affec-
tions of its fond parents, and its
death leaves a grave in their hearts
that time can never obliterate.
The following lines have been writ-
ten upon the death of the little one:

'Twas but a tiny flow'ret,
A bud of promise fair,
Sent down to us from heaven,
And watched with tender care.
A rure white bud to brighten
Our home from day to day,
A fragrant little blossom
Of comfort all the way.
A little while it lingered,
Filling our w 'rld with light,
Its dainty tendrils clinging
Around our heart-strings tight.

And then. as if to shield it
From cold winds passing by.
The angel came and plucked it
And planted it on high.
We miss out precious treasure
Far more than words can tell,
But God, who loves the lilies,
We know will guard it well.
And so we'll trust it to Him
Till yon gates shall open wide,
And hlie give-s rs back our blossom
In ueautv hmaenied.

This paper announced the deeper-

day issue ,and said that his friends
were hoping almost against hope for
his recovery, but the end came soom
after the lines were penned.
. Mr. Turner was sixty-six years old

heritance of a good name. The writ-

during all of those years his life has
been one of sobriety, gentleness and
uprightness. Never did we hear him

his name ever been mixed up with
that which has been of bad repute.
His record has been clean and his life

The last meeting of the usaoa was
beld at the- Weirsdale Presbyterian
ethteh with a full attendame, sad
mre than ordinary interest, the pree-
Ident, Mrs. Jones, presifng.
The sUbject for the day ww: "What
the W. C. T. U. State Unions Are Do-
I'ag in the Line of Christian tsla-

Reports were read of the work In
the following states: Califorals, New
Jersey, Georgia, Georgia, Virgifa, t-
intols and West Virginia.
At the request of the union Bear. E.
G. McKinley recently preached a very
able and interesting serman on-Clris-
tian citienship.
An original poem by Mrs. E. L. Saf-
ford, a member of the union, was read.
It was as follows:

Figting for Temperance

Sa a good old temperance song,
The kind we ought to sing;
fag a ooug of work wel done
TiM heaven and earth shall ring;
Sing till mountains answer back.
And vales their good news bring,
While we are fighting for temperance.

Shoot! Yes, shout! We'll bring the ju-
Shout! Yes, shout! the pledge that
make" you free;
So well sing the chorus from the
mountain to the sea,
While we are fighting for temperance.
Raise our banner high with song
Of country. God and home;
Let her pinions float afar,
TIs freedom's voice alone.
Keep her motto pure and white-
Our lives as pure and strong-
Whie we are fighting for temperance.
IAt the voices, north and south.
Join in the glad refrain;
Help to swell the chorus
And the joyful news proclaim-
Home and country, safe from harm,
King Alcohol is slain--

Christ has ever known.
2. Pray for our Endeavorers as
they come back from vacations, that
each cf them may be determined to
use tor Christ the strength that vaca-
tion has given.
-3. Pray for the schools and col-
leges as the7 open. God grant that all
the scholars may lermn the things best
worth knowifl
4. As we eater trpv the new in-
crease campaign for I, 0 new socie-
itfes and 1,C00.000 new members be-
Ifore the coEvention la Atlantic City

crowned with abudant a 4 most
blessed success."

Commenting on what' the Perry
Herald says regarding the Tele-
graph's mention of the decay and fall
of "another cherished institution of
the Broward admlnlstrtlon." the Pen-
sacola News heads its heavy leader,
"Dirty Tactics." Even worse than
that, Editor Crawford. It was a "dr-
ty job"-that whole state printing
business under the Broward adminis-
Continuing our esteemed Pensaco-
la contemporary tells us that It en-
dorses fully what the Perry Herald
says on the subject. Well, let's see
what the Perry Herald says, and what
the News endorses.
The Herald says that the present
sta e printer is one of Broward's bit-
terest opponents, leaving the Infer-
ence that the present state printer se-
cured the contract under the Broward
administration. Broward went out of
office on the first Tuesday in January,
1909, and the present state printer
came into possession of the printing
contract April 1st. under foreclosure
proceedings. The inference is, there-
fore, absolutely without foundation in
fact. The editor of the Pensacola
News knows of his own personal
knowledge that the inference has not
one scintilla of truth to support it, yet
he gives the inference his unqualified
editorial endorsement, and tells us
that "them f his sentiments."
Again, the Perry Herald says the
suctom of requiring a certified check
for $12,000 as a condition precedent
to bidding on the state printing was
in force during "several" alministra-
tions prior to Broward's. This state-
ment is wholly false, not intentionally
so. perhaps, but false just the same.
The editor of the Pensacola News
knows of his own personal knowledge
that it is false, and yet he gives it un-
qualified editorial endorsement.
It will be seen. therefore, that in
trying to cast odium on the Telegraph
our contemporaries have put them-
selves in a hole. One has falsified the
record and the other has endorsed the
falsification. That is the attitude
these edtor., have placed themselves
in. and we submit that in the future
the one should be more careful to
know and state the facts and the oth-
er should be a little more careful
about his endorsements.-Starke Tel-

sion is now being rapidly and vigor-
ously pushed all along the line. The
steel superstructure is now being
placed on the concrete piers across
Knight's Ke channel, while other
piers are being built from Bahia Hon-
da, a distance of five miles, at the rate
of two a day. Portions of this five-
mile waterway are to be filled in with
rock or trestled over. The actual
length of the steel bridge will be in
the neighborhood of three miles.
About five hundred men are employed
on the Bahia. Honda bridge work. The
bridge is expected to be completed in
The track department has about 15
miles of track already laid and ballast-
ed south of Knight's Key. and is lay-
ing track a-4 fast as the openings are
being filled in between the different
keys. The work trains are now oper-
ated to within twenty miles of Key
West, by means of a ferry from
Knight's Key to Big Pine Key. The
openings between the end of the track
and Key West are being rapidly filled
in by the dredge department, and in
the course of a few months the work
train will be working to Key West.
By that time the concrete and bridge
work from Knight's Key to Bak4a
Honda is expected to reach comple-
tion, and everything be in readiness
for Henry 'M. Flagler to take the first
trip to Key West by rail.
Over two thousand men are at pres-
ent employed in this work. They are
stationed either in camps on the land
or on large houseboats built for the
purpose. The men are well fed and
taken care of and have no cause for
complaint. Emergency hospitals are
to be found in all camps of any size,
and anyone sick or injured can be at-
tended to at once, and if his case need
