born in Irvin county, Georgia, Janu-
ary 14th, 1845; came to Florida on a
visit to his brothers, James and Na-
than Turner, in 1861. Enlisted at the
age of seventeen in Company "A,"

tion the afternoon of the next day,
near the Southanna river, which, on
the 27th of May, was, with his brig-
ade. commanded by General Joseph
Finegan. and was assigned to Ander-
son's division, afterwards commanded
by General Williams Melborne, Hill's
corps. Comrade Turner was a gallant
soldier, and with his command partici-
pated in the battles of Cold Harbor,
the Weldon railroad. Reams Station,
and all battles that his command was
engaged in from that date to the sur-
render of General Robert E Lee at Ap-
pamattox Court House, Virginia. April
9th, 1865. He was paroled as a pris-
oner of war April 10th, 1865, and re-
turned to Florida, adopting Marion
county as his home. He accepted
without a murmur the new order of
things, and with business forethought
entered actively in the peaceful walks
of life as merchant, cotton buyer,
stock raiser and farmer, accumulating
a sufficiency of this world's goods to
make him comfortable. He was hap-
pily married to Miss Josephine C.
Barco, November 9th, 1873, joined
the Baptist church in 1889 under the
ministry of Dr. L. D. Geiger, assisted
by Rev. D. B. Farmer, and was a con-
sistent and useful member of that
church the remainder of his life. He
was an active member of Marion
Camp. No. 56, U. C. V., a devoted hus-
band and father, and a quiet, but use-
ful citizen.
His health failed several years ago,
and it became apparent that it was
only a question of time when the dis-
solution would come. He died Sep-
tember 8th, 1909, at his old home at
Lake Sixteen, surrounded by a loving
wife and son, and other loved ones,
and was buried in St. Johns cemetery
the next day.

Star, and that it be recorded in our
historic book.
Resolved, 2nd, That we extend to
the bereaved loved ones our profound
sympathy in this their time of sorrow.

To the Honorable School Board, Ma-
rion County:
Gentlemen-I am appealing to you in
the interest of our school teachers,
school children and the Marion Coun-
ty Fair.
Do this: Allow the teachers to ad-
journ school on the afternoon of the
24tb of November, and not convene
school again until the following Mon-
day, thereby giving the teachers and
pupils two days at the fair, and order
tht the teachers be permitted later
to teach one Saturday in lieu of Fri-
day spent at the fair.
Many school are too far distant for
the teachers and pupils to visit the
fair and return prepared to engage in
school work the following day.
Gentlemen, think of the incalculable
benefit to our school boys and girls,
the great aid to our fair and the high
appreciation of our hard-worked
teachers. S. H. BLITCH,

year. which fee permits the patrons
to borrow the current magazines with
each book taken out. Non-members
are required to pay 2 cents per day
Cor the privilege of drawing books.
Water Works-The Ocala Water
Comopay was organized in 1888 with
a capital stock of $100,000, owned
principally by eastern capitalists. The
water is obtained from an artesian
well bored to a depth of 1220 feet,
rendering the source of contamination
absolutely free from surface impuri-
ties. The capacity is 500.000 gallons
per day. The water is hard. but heal-
thy and palatable, the sulphur being
removed before being turned into the
mains. There are nine miles of
mains and ninety-five fire hydrants.
Transportation-Marion county and
Ocala have two systems of railroads,
the Atlantic Coast Line and the Sea-
board Air Line. Both roads traverse
the county north and south, and the
%. C. L. runs also east sad west.
In addition to these rail facilities,
beat lines operate from the Oklawa-
ha river, which runs north and south
through the county, connecting at
Palatka for Jacksonville and ocean
points, and also lines operating in the
Withinaoochee river, which skirts the
southwestern edge of the county.
Points of Interest-Silver Springs,
a resort five miles north of theocity
is one of the most famous and popu-
Oar resorts in the state. The Springs
may be reached by driving out, as the
roads to it are fine. At the Springs
is the terminus of the Howard and
Hart lines of steamers which run to
Pazstka. This is considered one of
the most beautiful trips on the con-
tinent. The Oklawaha river, into
which the Springs empty, has an indi-
viduality all its own. Its banks are
strewn with a constantly changing
panorama of scenery entirely differ-
eat from anything else in this coun-
try. At the Springs a sight awaits
the visitor that it is seldom one's
privilege to behold. The tiny boat
that takes you out on the Springs has
a glass bottom, through the bottom of
the Springs can be plainly seen at a

Europe. There, however, it is not so
universal and flagrant as in the orient.
There is scarcely a house in the
Moslem, Greek and Armenian districts
of the population of Constantinople
which has not hanging above its en-
trance door a collection of garlic and
scarcely a beast of toil which has not
attached to some part of it a string
of blue beads. Among the uneducated
it is impossible to find an individual
who does not pin absolute faith to the
all healing power of such charms.
especially of blue beads, which are
supposed to be an unfailing panacea
against every possible ill.
Less general is the belief in the east
In the baleful influence of the planets
Saturn and Mars upon the constitution
of the human body. upon its four car-
dinal humors-blood, phlegm, yellow
bile and black bile. These planets are
considered by some orientals, especial-
ly in the far south, as the unmistak-
able causes of all sorts of ailments.

Queer Ideas About Aleviatingr
Bodily Suffering.


The Treatment to Which Crippled
Children Are Subjected-Bunches of
Garlic and Strings of Blue Beads as
Panaceas Against All Kinds of Ills.
A stone strikes some part of the imldy
of an oriental and inflicts a wound
The train of ideas that this accident
would produce in his mind would run
something like this: The stone is the i
cause of pain. the cause of the wound.
It is the principal origin of the trouble
But the essence of every origin is bid-
den. secret and therefore sacred. The
stone becomes an awe inspiring fetich
The wound is neglected. The fetirb
has to be propitiated. This simple il-
lustration Is borne out and support l
by everyday experience which ened-
teal men encon-iter In the east.
Another n, t:tuce may he derived
from a mon~r ibe lower classes of rho
Grpek ,pipi-.ition of Constantinople. A
child fills iand cuts his head. The
first tbouniht of the parent is to be ur.
not to wash and to bind up the wound.
still less to vall medical assistance.
however grave the cut may turn out
to be. This is always an afterthought.
which very often comes so late that
the help of a surgeon can prove of eo
The first thing the farther or mother of
the Injured child thinks of doing is to
poor over the shoulder upon the place
of the accident a libation of wine or
sugared water and to whisper in per-
forming this some mysterious formula
supposed to possess supernatural effi-
cacy against every form of evil.
The Moslems are addicted to the
queerest practices for purposes of heal-
ing or alleviating bodily pain. A Turk.
for Instance, in distress or suffering
from some disease, however severe,.
knows of no better remedy than to fix
a piece of his dress, torn off with true
oriental equanimity, to an iron bar of
some saint's tomb or to drink water
from a tumbler into which he has pre-
viously put a sheet of paper with writ-
ings from the Koran. Sometimes be
will take a jar, the interior of which
has been written all over with strange
formulae and signs. Hlie will then fill
It with water, wait till these formulae
and signs have been thoroughly dis-
solved and drink the singular solution
with an absolute faith in Its wonder
working efficacy.
Sheltered by the somber cypresses
of the great Mohammedan cemetery at
Scutari (the ancient Chrysopolis on the
Asiatic coast of the Bosporus) there
stands in picturesque solitude the tomb
of a horse. Every Friday afternoon
Turkish mothers carry to that tomb
their crippled children to be submitted
by a select "*khodja" (priest) to an ex-
traordinary course of treatment. These
children are dragged, with their dis-
eased limbs dangling over the hillock.
from one end of the tomb to the other
and then back again in the same fash-
ion. The occult influence emanating
from this hillock is supposed to be an
all edcient panacea.
It IS not dlcult to trace In this case
the crude, imperfect *qoicstion of
Ideas. The horse has long been con-
sidered an emblem of vigor, typifying.
as Ruskin says, the flow and force
of life." Hence the belief of the ori-
ental, inherited, no doubt, from the
Greeks, In the all conquering virtue
and influence of occult and mysterious
efluvia which are supposed to emanate
constantly from a horse's tomb.
The wearing of a necklace of blue
beads or of garlic as a potent means
of keeping away disease or of warding
off the evil eye is quite a universal
matter of sincere belief in the whole
of Turkey. This superstition is shared.
as is well known, by the lower classes
of many a country in civilized eastern

The Best Known News-
paper in the United

Circulation 200,000
The seventy-fourth year of its ex-
istence finds the Toledo t3lade more
popular than at any period of its re-
markable career. It is now read each
week by more than a million people.
Its field is not circumscribed by state
boundaries, but involves the length
and breadth of the United States, giv-
ing it an unquestionable right of
claiming to be the greatest national
weekly newspaper in the country.
The Weekly Blade is distinctly a
family newspaper. The one object of
its publishers has always been to i
make it fit for the American home,
for the fireside, and of interest to ev-
ery member of the family. To fulfill
this purpose it is kept clean andl
wholesome. The news of the world
is banded in a comprehensive man-
ner. and the various departments of
the Blade are edited with painstaking
care. The Household page is a de-
light to the women and children;
current affairs are treated editorially
without prejudice; the serial stories
are selected with the idea of pleasing
the greatest number or fiction lovers;
the Question Bureau is a scrap-book
of information: the Farmstead col-
umns are conducted witb the purpose
of giving the patrons a medium for
the exchange of ideas and informa-
tion on farm topics. No department
is neglected, but every feature is ta-
ken care of with the idea of making
the Blade worth many times the price
of subscription-one dollar a year.

The proper preparation of the cane
crop for grinding cuts quite a figure
in the net result of the syrup-making.
Cane intended for syrup should be al-
lowed to grow as late in the season
as possible. There is often rivalry
among farmers in certain communi-
ties as to who will have the first of
the season's syrup on the market, and
the crop is often cut weeks ahead of

ten mature ones. on orntuary ss,- *

pays one to buy these; but for the or-

piece of hoop iron will be found to do
good work. All dead leaves should be
completely removed up to the first
immature joint, and particular care
exercised that everything in the shape
of trash be completely cleared away
from the roots, so that the stalks can
be cut very close to the ground: for
the sweetest part of the cane is that
next to the ground.
This operation has quite an impor-
tant bearing on both the quality and
quantity of the syrup. If we cut
close to the mature joints and leave
no green joints for grinding, we are
apt to be troubled with sugaring of
the syrup. The green or immature
joints contain glucose, which tends

But I must hasten on. The object
of Masonry now claims our attention.
To go no further back than the build-
ing of King Solomon's temple, where
we have the first positive evidence of
organized Masonry, we find that the
prime object of tne order was differ-
ent from its first object now. In the
seven years during which the work
on the temple was going on the large
number of workmen employed were
divided into companies, and each as-
signed work in the department for
which he was qualified. The wages
were graded according to the skill of
the workmen. To encourage care and
perfection in work those of a lower
grade were advanced to a higher or-
der of work as soon as they had made
suitable proficiency Undor the care-
ful instruction and supervision of Hi-
ram, the cunning worked, progress
was bound to be repaid, and many
master-workmen were developed. A
building of such world renowned ce-
lebrity was bound to give prestige to
the men who hal reached the dis-
tinction of master workmen in its
construction. It was bound to awalr-
en a desire for improved architecture
throughout the then known world,
and create a desire for skilled m'-
chanics. This led to the organization
of the workmen. The king and the
two Hirams, in their unite wisdom,

rules, principles, laws and tenets of
the order. Then, as the v'orknmen be-

world the order increased. Wherever
they met, a helping band! was always
there; for the order taught brotherly
lo\ e. charity, fidelity and truth. As
time rolled on the brethren scattered
all over the world and their numbers
greatly increased. But the immortal
truth; so impressively taught by the
order were seized, by the most en-

lightened minds .and Masonry grew
in favor with the intellectual world
more for the moral truths that she
taught in such a surprisingly beauti-
ful manner. than for its operative fea-
tures. Gradually operative Masonry
was swallowed up in the scientific,
and now we have the speculative Ma-
sonry. The object of speculative Ma-
sonry, as I intimated a while ago. is
to teach the science of human life.
By means of a system of allegory,
types and shadows, she illustrates in
a manner unapproached by any sys-
tem of human invention how to suc-
cessfully live. and how to triumphant-
ly die. She takes hold of her initi-
ates in the darkness of ignorance and
leads them on in the grand quest af-
ter truth, beginning like a little chIlM,
and revealing unto them at every
step more and more of the immortal
truths which underlie the problem of

"What's the proper age to marry?"
Easy question that, I ween.
Girls should wed, nor longer tarry,
Soon as they've achieved eighteen.
Spring is nature's time for mating-

Come then, lads, don't keep me wait-

"The proper age to marry"-eh?
One thing is very sure,
That wedlock's bound to gang agley
Where brides are immature.
No woman ever knew her mind,
Nor love's true call discerned,
Until first youth she'd left behind,
And thirty years had turned.
For summer is Dan Hymen's time;
Then, not before, he's due.
Yours, in her matrimonial prime,
Maud (aetat thirty-two.)

Of scribes, their various views who
It doesn't need discussing.
For she who'd make a fitting wife
And helpmeet to her fellow,
Must needs have reached that time of
When years the judgment mellow.
I've reached that age-you've guessed
I'm wise. sedate and thrifty;
I won't say more. but verbum sap.

Dr. R. R. Snowden. who is now at
Seattle, Wash., writes interestingly of
his observations on farming and poul-
try raising in the west. We make
the following extracts from his let-
"One can learn a great deal at :,
first class exposition, but the most
important thing I have learned here
is that the Florida people, as a whole,
do not properly appreciate and ".n-
courage the work of the experimental
station. It is astonishing how these
westerners avail themselves of th,
benefits of their stations. One county
alone. Whitman, in this state, profits
to the amount of $100.0110 annually
from the work done by their experi-
mental station. A professor of Mc-
Donald College, Quebec, told the wri-
ter that Canada realizes ten million
dollars annually from the increased
yield of wheat, due directly ani whol-
ly to the improvement of the seed by
selection and cross fertilization by
the experiment stations. He also
said that they were improving several
breeds of fowls along the line of egg
production, and had reached the
point where the average is 250 eggs
per year, and many hens had reached
the 300 eggs point.
"Speaking of poultry, I must tell
you, Petaluma, Cal., shipped out last
year 5,312.804 dozen eggs, while a
very large number besides are used
for watching and for the t.ble: their
shipments of poultry lacked but 2400
of being a million head. I am told by
an official of the Petaluma Incubator
Co..-and therefore good authority-
that the feed for the chickens amounts
to $24,000 a week: and all this is
within a radius of ten miles. It takes
five strong banks to handle the busi-
ness. The fowls that have placed,
Petaluma in the lead of the poultry
business are practically all of the
white Leghorn breed.
"There are some nice things I would
like to say of lakeland. simply ,.'-

long enough. I must say. however. for
myself that this is not a pleasure trip

ant."-R. R Snowlen. in Lakeland

In the Jacksonville Times-Union of
September 21, there appeared a little
item beginning as follows: "An inven-
tion of the highest importance in
wireless telegraphy is announced by
a Florida inventor. Charles Raby, of
Fort Myers. who claims that it will
enable a hundred messages to be sent
simultaneously from or to a wireless
It seems that this item was
prompted by an article which appear-
ed recently in the Tampa Tribune.
and was correct in the main, with. the
exception that a mistake was made
regarding the residence of Mr. Paby,
who lives at Estero. and not Fort
Myers. Florida.
Mr. Raby is an expert telegrapher
and electrician of many years' experi-
ence. and has been a student in the
field of wireless telegraphy since thaw
discovery first came to popular no-
tice. There can be no question that
he has invented a wonderful improve-
ment to the system of wireless teleg-
raplhy now in vogue. and as soon ias
he has obtained the requisite finan-
cial backing, the device will be placed
upon the market. Thinking that a
few remarks from the inventor him-
self might be of interest to the gen-
eral public, we interview MIr. Raby.
who kindly consented, and has made
a statement regarding his remarkable
invention, which appears on another
page of this issue.-Estero Eagle.

Judging from the start, we infer
that the politicians of Pensacola are
determined to vie with Jacksonville
for honors at the next election.-Pa-

accusation. Talk about "unkindest

Memorial services were held over
the body of Mrs. B. H. Seymour at
the Methodist church at 10 o'clock
Wednesday morning. As the casket
containing the precious remains was
being borne to the altar by the pall
bearers, the choir rendered very
sweetly and softly the hymn, "Asleep
in Jesus."
Rev. R. H. Barnett, pastor in charge.
and Rev. T. J. Nixon, presiding elder,
paid beautiful and loving tributes to
the virtues that characterized the life
and endeared the memory of the de-
ceased so affectionately tp her church
and will cause her good deeds to live
after her.
As the casket was borne from the
church the choir sang "The City ot
Beautiful Light," and the cortege then
proceeded to Greenwood cemetery.

This paper announces with pro-
found sorrow the death of Wilbur
Johnson. the twelve year old son of
Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Johnson. The lit-
zle fellow was taken sick Sunday, but
the family did not think that the case
was at all serious, but a sudden turn
for the worse was observed Tuesday
afternoon. and all was done for the
little sufferer that was possible, but
all efforts were unavailing, and he
died of brain fever Tuesday night.
The funeral was held from the res-
idence on North Main street Wednes-
day afternoon, Rev. R. H. Barnett giv-
ing consolation to the stricken ones
by reciting with tender pathos the
promises of Jesus.
The remains were buried in Green-
wood cemetery annex, and the follow-
ing named gentlemen acted as the
pall bearers: Allen Bridges, R. L. Mor-
ris, W. F. Marlow, J. 0. Dekle, Wil-
liam Barco and Mr. Toler.
Mr. and Mrs. Johnson are almost
strangers in our city, Mr. Johnson be-
ing proprietor of the Silver Tipped
Livery, and the heartfelt sympathy of
our people go out to them in their
great bereavement. May God, who
"tempers the wind to the shorn lamb,"
strengthen them in their sorrow.

The last of Ocala's fall and winter
millinery openings was held yester-
day. At this time the millinery de-
partment of Mr. G. A. Nash's big
store was openedto to the public. Mr.
and Mrs. Nash have just returned
home from New York, Baltimore and
other eastern markets, and while
away purchased a beautiful assort-
ment of millinery. They have a large
number of tailored and ready to wear
hats, as well as many handsome dres-
sy hats, which were displayed yester-
day. They make a specialty of the
stylish Fiske and Gage hats, which.
are known the world over as the most
stylish hats gotten out. Their pattern
hats are purchased from some of the
largest and best millinery establish-
ments in the north, and need but to
be seen to be admired. The opening
will be continued today, and in fact
all during the winter season this pop-
ular firm will receive new shipments
of hats, which will be announced
through the newspapers.
The ladies of Ocala and near-by
towns desiring handsome and stylish
millinery will do well to call and in-
spect the hats at Mr. Nash's store, as
there are styles and prices to suit the
taste of everyone.
Yesterday the store was crowded
from early morning until night, and
the ladies were kept busy exclaiming
over the beauty of the ultra fashiona-
ble models on display.


A silver tea will be given at the pri-
mary school building on next Satur-
day afternoon from four o'clock to
half past five. The object of the tea
is to give the teachers of the high and
primary schools an opportunity of
meeting the patrons of the schools,
and to provide means with which to
purchase some much needed supplies
for the primary school. All interest-
ed. both ladies and gentlemen, are
cordially invited to attend.


The following invitations were is-
sued on Tuesday:
Mr. and Mrs. John Dozier request
the honor of your presence at the mar-
riage of their daughter, Edna, and

One of. the most punctual subscrib-
ers to this paper is D. C. Lewis of
Daisy, now working for the E. P.
Rentz Lumber Company at Fort Mc.
Coy. He has been a subscriber for
eight years and reads the paper regu-
larly, and says that it has been most
helpful to him. He was in Saturday,
and his name appears on our books
with having paid a year in advance.
Hle says that Fort McCoy is on a boom
and is destined to be one of the fin-
est sections of the county and it will
be largely owing to the efforts of Mr.
Rentz. and the black people are prais-
ing him the same as the whites, for
he has given employment to a great
deal of labor, and has put hundreds of
dollars into circulation. The colored
people, he says, are doing well, buying
homes of their own and are becoming
more industrious and frugal.

Mr. R. P. Williams of Delhi, La., is
a visitor to our city. He comes here
for the purpose of investment, if he
can be suited, and up to this time he
is highly pleased with what he has
seen of our soil and the products of
the same. He is from the storm-swept

section, and he thinks that a number
of his neighbors will be governed by
the report that he shall carry back
with him, so we shall not be surpris-
ed to see a large number of immi-
grants from Louisiana this winter.
Understanding southern conditions,
they will be valuable acquisitions to
our citizenship. We hope that Mr.
Williams will be made to carry back
with him a most favorable impression.

Judge Hocker, who has been spend-
ing the past two months in the moun-
tains of Virginia, was in Ocala yester-
day, and left on the noon train for
Yelaha ,where he will visit his daugh-

days, and will then go to Tallahassee
to resume his official duties. He is
looking exceptionally well, and
weighs more than he ever did before.
He is one of Florida's most eminent

the most that is expected of them is
to secure appropriations for the deep-
ealag of rivers and harbors, and the
erection of custom houses and other
public buildings for their respective
The idea has long been prevalent
that it is the peculiar province of the
national government to exercise an
oversight of rivers and harbors, but
such a thing as a national highway
has no place in the theory of our
government, and it is repugnant to
public policy to advocate it.
Under this prevailing and dominant
idea the seacoast cities are being
built up at the expense of the inland
We want the inland cities to come

into the possession of all that be-
longs to them. We want them to en-
joy an equal freight rate with the sea-
port cities. We want the idea to be-
come dominant that highways to the
farms are as important as deep har-
bors to the sea.
Why should a city, because it is lo-
cated on a river leading to the sea,
be given a much lower freight rate
than a city remote from water trans-
portation? Is there any good reason
for it either in equity or Justice?
The inland clites, being dependent
solely upon the railways for their
freights, should be treated fairly, and
if the railways stand in their own
light and refuse to do so, and treat
them unfairly because they have
them in their clutches, they should be
made to do so by legal enactments,
which cannot be brought about if the
inland cities have no representatives
in our legislative tribunals to hammer
this idea into life. 0
Who are the candidates for the
United States senate from Florida?

Blount from Pensacola, Mr. Reeves

have outlined.
We must have men in official post-

state railway commission and the
state railway commissions that ev-
ery tub in this republic shall stand
On Its own bottom, that equal freight
rates shall be accorded alike to all
cities, and that no special privileges
shall be granted to any; and that
highways shall be built to the farms
the same as waterways to the sea.
That's the platform for the interior
to adopt, and it wants to put a man
On it so as to popularize it and make
it become the policy of the states and
the nation.
The public treasury should not bc-

This is the way the Toledo Blade,
a republican paper, speaks of the late
Governor Johnson of Minnesota:
A strong man in American states-
manship has been removed by the
death of Governor Johnson of Minne-
sota. He was as remarkable in win-
aing national respect as he was re-
markable in carrying elections in the
tace of great odds. His partisanship
was of the kind which Mr. Taft had

TSi p a1 a has Mde itas m
M W he t ma tter quite clear
dui4l thee past few months, and
'the Metropolis has admired the stand
Stken by that paper. The Banner is
not modest about it, however, and a-
serts that It is the only paper in
Florida that stands absolutely for
free trade. The Pensaeola Journal ;s
not to be forgotten. We believe that
publication has some positive ideas
concerning the tariff. Maybe the Ban-
ner and the Journal can get together,
and afford twin examples of the genu-
ine Jeffersonian democracy. While
entirely willing to take hats off to the
Banner for its laudable stand as to
the tariff and congratulate it upon
being so right on this question, we
cannot refrain from wondering how
the Bannet at the same time can Le
so wrong concerning the primary.
The editor of the Banner is one of
the old war-horses, and he undoubted-
ly remembers the fight the county
over for the primary against the con-
vention system. It was the avenue
that afforded the outlet to the people
who were hemmed in between the ma-
chine politics of both parties. The in-
terests controlled the democratic par-
ty it it was in power, and the inter-
ests controlled the republican parzy
if it was in power. Direct nomina-
tions by the people was the solution,
and brought about the establishment
of the organic principles of democra-
cy-placing the first power of the
government in the hands of the pe>-
The Banner and its confreres would
now take a step backward and sur-
render all that has been accomplish-
ed in this line for the people, whica
is for the political welfare of the
country, and put the nomination of
candidates again in the hands of the
few assembled in convention, or theta
fewer still who control conventions
from the ante-rooms.
The Metropolis would like to see
the Banner come out solidly for the
people in this respect as it has on the
tariff question. The good that it
could do and the influence that it
wields should be at all times on the
side of the people, for we believe its
views to be honestly conceived an I
expressed, no matter what they hap-
pen to be.-Miami Metropolis.



The airship is with us and it has
come to stay. After wireless telegra-
phy anything was possible. The con-
quest of the winds and waves by Mar-
coni presaged the conquest of the air
by Curtiss, Bleriot and Zeppelin. The
beat printers were sure that a type-
setting machine was preposterous un-
til the Mergenthalers actually crowd-
ed them away from their cases. Ten
miles was in the beginning thought
the limit of communication by the
telephone. The electric light could
never be distributed. Morse's magnet-
ic telegraph took the world complete-
ly by surprise.
Taking counsel of these memories
why should we doubt the airship? If
it can already carry a dozen or more
passengers, why not a thousand? If
it can travel fifty miles an hour, why
not a hundred and fifty?
The prophetic instinct of the poet!
"I'll put a girdle around the earth in
forty minutes," says Puck; but how
many of us recall the lines of Locks-
ley Hall, in which Tennyson makes
an equally remarkable forecast of the
future? In this connection let me
quote them:

"Men, my brothers, men the workers,
ever reaping something new;
That which they have done but ear-
nest of the things that they shall
For I dipt into the future, far as hu-
man eye could see;
Saw the vision of the world and the
wonders that would be;
Saw the heavens fill with, commerce,
argosies of magic sails,
Pilots of the purple twilight, dropping
down with costly bales;
Heard the heavens fill with shouting,
and there rain'd a ghastly dew
From the nation's airy navies grap-
pling in the central blue;
Far along the world-wide whisper of
the south-wind rushing warm,
With the standards of the peoples
plunging through the thunder-
Till the war-drum throbb'd no longer,
and the battle flags were furl'd
In the parliament of man, the federa-
tion of the world."

Shall it be so? Shall the battle flags
be furled? Shall It be peace, and the
brotherhood of man? Shall there be
no more war, nor lying, nor backbit-
ing? Let us pray God and hope!-H.

Aswering the et, "What
church would Jesus Jla If he were in
New York?" the Rev. Charles A. Eat-
on tol d his congregation at the Madi-
son Avenue Baptist church. Madison
avenue, and Thirty-third street, that
he did not believe that Jesus would
Join any. He said in part:
"If Jesus came here to New York,
which church would he join? I'm
afraid some of the churches .wouldn't
let him In. He wouldn't )e orthodox,
and he would be sure to be too broad.
He might prefer going out oa : street
corner and talking to a newsboy or
a bartender or a pickpoc'-et \-. spek-
ing from the pulpit of one of cut- fine
edifices. He'd be a most difficult
member to get along witn in any
church, for he'd be too unconvention-
"We have elevated our rftual& to a
place of first importance. Even in
the Baptist church, which i. supposed
to be the freest, a hymn misplaced
creates quite a flutter. I do not be-
lieve, if Jesus came to New York,
that he would care to Join any of cur
churches. He would say 'My church
consists of all!'"
While recognizing the narrowness
of some and the bigotry of others, we
have no doubt but that Jesus. were
he to make his second appearance
upon the earth, would applaud ail
churches, because he would know
that the men and women direci'ng
them are only mortals, and are inot
expected to be either saints or an-
gels. However mistaken they ar-
along certain lines, he would know
that they are all conscientiously etn-
deavoring to follow in his footsteps,
and to that extent they would reecide
his benediction.
And how about those outside the
pale of the churches?
We believe that he would apply the
same rule to those as *to others. Wec
believe that he would apply to their
lives the same square and compass-
that he would have no favorites andI
would show nc partiality. If those
outside the churches recognized the
"Fatherhood of God and the Brother-
hood of Man," and carried their be-
lief into their daily living-if they
heard the cry of distress: if they fed
the hungry; if they clothed the poor;
if they neither cheated nor defraud-
ed;. if they lent their name and in-
fluence to the upbuilding of the worli
along better lines-we do not believe
that he would condemn them because
their names could not be found on a
church roll, or because they stood
aloof and took no part in the discus-
sion of sprinkling or immersion.
When he came to the case of Lo-
gan, the poor Indian' chieftain, who
made this pronouncement: "I appeal

cold and naked, and he clothed him
not," whatever Logan believed along
other lines Jesus would say to him:

In a letter to this osme #MB Mr.
Frank Harris, Jr., who s atendig
the Eastman College at PoughlP
sie, N. Y., he says that that city is in
gala attire on account of the Hudson-
Fulton celebration. Friday was the
special day celebrated at Poughkeep-
sie. He said that the city is very
beautifully decorated for the occa-
sion. Every business house and ev-
ery home is decorated with Hudson
colors, flags, banners and bunting.
The main streets are all decorated
with thousands of tiny incandescent
lights. In the street in front of the
government building and the court
house there are twelve or fourteen
immense white columns, (which were
used in Washington when Mr. Taft
was inaugurated president of the
United States), and when the lights
are turned on everything looks very
beautiful, and looking up and down
the main streets one can imagine
himself in New York City, as there
are thousands of people on the
streets, and they are kept constantly
on the move. There is a policeman
every few feet ready at the first halt
to call out "Move on!" or "Step live-
While Ocala is busy preparing for
her county fair, Poughkeepsie, the
county seat of Dutchess county, is all
in readiness to throw open her doors
to the people of this county and ad-
joining counties. I expect to go out
some time this week to see the dif-
ference between their products and
ours, and to see the way they exhibit
their products.
Cantaloupes and watermelons are
very plentiful, and the former very
delicious. The tomatoes here are the
biggest I have ever seen in my life,
and grapes are very plentiful and
cheap, as are also peaches. The
peaches are' almost without taste,
however, but look very pretty. They
are as pink as the cheeks of the pret-
ty northern girls.
Poughkeepsie is the home of the
famous Smith Brothers, of cough drop
fame. They also make candies, and
have a very handsome fountain in
their establishment, and their grill
room is always crowded. They have
underground refrigerators, which hold
many tons of ice, and they use not
less than three double team loads of
ice daily. The Smith Brothers have
made millions of dollars.
The cement sidewalks here are
very poor. I think the Woodmar
Sand & Stone Company and our oth-
er cmopany at home could make a
fortune in Poughkeepsie.
This is a pretty city and is kept
very clean and attractive, and the
streets are constantly sprinkled.
Autos are here by the hundreds,
and every day we see hundreds of
people coming through, going to New
York City and other places from Ohio,
Michigan, Pennsylvania and a good
many other states. They make about
as good time as some trains, and a
great deal better than those in Flor-

Time was when democratic plat-
forms represented the aggregate wis-
dom of the party. Under the present
system the platform represents the
catch-phrases of the candidate, and is
meaningless. It is certainly time for
the state executive committee to call
a convention for the purpose of de-
claring where we are at. This go-as-
you-please plan is wrecking the party.

The people through the press are

state democrats without knowing
what that means. In national affairs

cause the national democratic con-

can hold to anything except negro
domination, and call himself a demo-

The reading world owes much to
Robert Hoe, who died in London,
September 22. The New York World
calls him "the greatest maker of
printing presses." It may almost be
said that the history of the Hoe print-
ing press factory is the history of the
development of the printing press of
today. At any rate it is a history of
a century of invention applied to per-
fecting the printing press, and the
effect of these inventions on the gen-
eral diffusion of knowledge could nev-
er be measured. Speaking of the
developments since the time when his
uncle invented what was then called
the "lightning press," the New York
World says:
"When the London Times sold for
10 cents a copy and was printed from
flat bed presses no wide circulation of
knowledge of the news was possible.
To multiply copies beyond a limited
demand meant then setting the same
matter in type many times for as
many presses. The invention of ster-
eotyping was one long step toward
wider knowledge. The perfection of
the rotary press by the Hoe works
was another. The first quadruple
press ever built, which made it possi-
ble to print the cut and folded paper,
was made for the World by Mr. Hoe's
establishment. From that to the
huge dodecuple presses of today and
the giant machines that print simul-
taneously in many colors was a mar-
velous but a steady and logical devel-
opment."-American Press Associa-

no hoe to dig them out. went back to

Nettes is hereby given that the
akt a=mal convention of the Tmr
pe e Operators aocaton will be
held In the auditorium of the bawrd of
tmra. tn the city of JacksoavfFle, lm.,
edneeday and IThursay, October
Bt and 21st, 1909. The sessions will
convene r...ptly at 10 a. m., and 2
p. m. each day.
Every member of the association
and every man engaged directly or in-
directly In the naval stores industry,
whether he has ever been alligned
with the association or not, is urged
to attend this convention.
Questions of vital importance are to
be frankly and conscientiously con-
sidered, discussed and acted upon.
This is no time for bickering and dis-
trust, but for discussion and action
along business lines.
An interesting program is being
arranged. Invitations will be extend-
ed to the governors of each of the
states in the naval stores belt, and
also to the chief of the forest service
of the United States to attend and
address the convention. It is expect-
ed that at least two representatives
of the forest service will be present
and deliver addresses, outlinging the
result of the government's investiga-
tions of the industry. It will be a
revelation to many operators to learn
of the extensive experimental and ed-
ucational work now being conducted
by the government for the direct ben-
eat of the manufacturers of naval
The special agent of the bureau of
the census, in charge of naval stores
statistical work for the forthcoming
census, will also be present. He will
advise with operators as to the man-
ner of preparing schedules which ev-
ery operator will be required to fill
out within the next few months.
One of the pleasant social features
at the convention will be a banquet
tendered to the visiting naval stores
operators by the business men of the
city of Jacksonville. This will be one
of the most elaborate banquets ever
given to a trade association in the
state of Florida.
In aiaa.1gk for the convention and
banquet It is important that the com-
mittee on arran"emnnts shall have
an approximate idea of the number
who will attend. To obtain this Infor-
mation a postcard is herewith inclos-
ed, and each operator receiving a copy
of this eall is respectfully urged to fill
out the card and return it as soon as
practical. Invitations will be mailed
to all operators who thus signify their
mention of attending the convention.
The complete program for the con-
vention will be published through the
newspapers and trade journals in due

Your presence is needed. Come to
the ninth annual convention of the
Turpentine Operators' Association on
October 20thb and 21st, 1909, in Jack-
soville, Plorids.

Jacksonville, la. Sept., 1909.


That Escambia county officers are
determined to enforce the law prohib-
iting the shooting of bullbats, several
citizens of Pensacola have reason to
know. as they were recently arrest-
ed and fined for the offense of killing
these mosquito annihilators. There
may be sport in shooting these birds,
but sport should give way to the law,
particularly when we know that these
industrious birds, alive, are useful to

man and of no use when killed.-
Apalachicola Times.

Mr. Alexander Moorhead, who is
surveying the tract of land recently
purchased in the Summerfield neigh-
borhood by the National Land Com-
pany, was in town Wednesday, and
said that a great deal of the land was
very excellent and that six buyers
had already arrived, and were much
pleased with the outlook. We can ex-
pect a large influx of settlers this win-


So the Hon. Ion L. Farris, speaker
of the Florida house of representa-
tives, has decided to "go out after
Prank Clark." Mr. Farris made a
spectacle of himself by being on both
sides of the Jacksonville charter bill
at the last session of the legislature,
and is about the weakest man today,
politically, in Duval county, neither
faction having any confidence in him,
politically. If he thinks the people of
this district will entrust their inter-
ests la congress to such a political ac-
robat he will find that he is badly
mistaken when the votes are counted.
--Gainesville Sun.

Mr. Edwin W. Davis, state attorney
for this district, went down to Inver-

of Florida. Only a short time ago
this firm issued a booklet, entitled
"Plorida Vegetables," that contains
forty-six pages of articles on all gar-
den products. This is followed by a
special booklet devoted to the Irish
potato industry, and cannot fail to be
of great value to potato growers. We
are promised new editions of their
valued fall Citrus Book and Florida
Soils to be sent out during this month.
These are prepared by a corps of ex-
perienced orange growers, under the
personal supervision of Mr. Wilson.
All their publications are free and we
advise everybody to send for them.


The editor was out, but the office
boy was in, when the countryman ask-
ed: "What about the markets?" The
boy replied: "Young men, unsteady;
girls, lively, and in demand; papas,
firm but declining; mammas, unset-
tled, waiting for higher bids; coffee,
considerably mixed; fresh fish, active
and slippery; eggs, quiet, but expect-
ed to open soon; whiskey, still going
down; onions, strong; yeast, rising;
breadstuff, heavy; boots and shoes,
those on the market are constantly
going up and down; hats and caps,
not so high as last year, excepting
foolscap, which is stationary; tobac-
co, very low, and has a downward ten-
dency; silver, close, but not close


ays it Is An Unmtigated Falsehood
-as Never Been a Party to a
Political De04
Hon. Hudson Burr, heirm-p of the
Florida railroad commission, thus
calls a Florida editor to time for ex-
pressing a political "pipe dream."
Tllabassee, Oct. 2, 1909.
To the Editor of the Miami News-
Record, Miami, Fla.:
Dear Sir-In a recent issue of your
paper you publish an article in which
you connect me with certain political
conferences and deals. I quote from
your article:
"The recent announcement of Hon.
Lewis Zim of 9t. Augustine, that he
would be a candidate for congress in
the second district before the primary
of next year is the first indication that
certain political conferences that have
been held this summer, are bearing
"It is evidence of one of the finest
political deals that has been entered
into by politicians in many a long day,
and which, if carried out, will break
up the political calculations of many
aspiring politicians.
"The News-Record is in receipt of
reliable information from a source
that cannot be doubted that exposes
the inside facts of the proposed deal,
and that will stir up considerable in-
terest in political circles.
"Reading Mr. Zim's announcement
carefully it becomes evident that he
does not commit himself to running
as a congressional candidate, but
leaves something open for after con-
"Instead of Mr. Zim's finally run-
ning for congressman, he will give
place on the ticket to R. Hudson Burr,
now railroad commissioner, who will
try to fill Frank Clark's shoes.
"For his service Mr. Zim will, at
the proper time, become a candidate
for McLin's job as commissioner of
agriculture, and be supported by those
in the present deal."
I would pay no attention to this-
contemptible article but for the fact
that you undertake to connect me with
entering into political deals, nad in
doing so use the language: "In re-
ceipt of reliable information from a
source that cannot be doubted that
exposes the inside facts."
In the first place I wish to say that
I know nothing of any conference or
conferences being held.
In the second place I have never
been a party to a political deal in my
life, nor do I ever expect to be.
In the third place, I am not a can-
didate for congress, nor have I been
even tentatively.
So far as your statement refers to
me, I brand it as an unmitigated and
malicious falsehood, manufactured
from the "whole cloth" for political
When I get ready to run for con-
gress or any other office I shall not
hesitate to apprise the people of my
state of my Intentions without enter-
ing into political deals.

"Mr. Burr is unnecessarily peevish.
It was not claimed that he was one of
the conferees, and he shows consider-
able advance indignation over the an-
nouncement that he may become a
candidate for congressional honors.
"When the time comes that Mr.
Burr shall make his announcement,
if he ever does, he will probably find
that the people of the district or state
have some very well defined ideas as
to his candidacy for any office."
-Miami News-Record.

Will bring them by the score.

Florida Has Many Advantages Over
It, But Needs Push
In a recent issue of the Tampa
Times was published the following ar-
ticle, in which is given the impression
gained by a leading Tampan on a trip
through the western states:
"C. M. Knott, clerk of the circuit
court, returned this morning from a
flying trip west. He left his family at
Denver, and then went on to Seattle,
San Francisco and Los Angeles.
"Mr. Knott says the western coun-
try is wonderful in its scenery and in
its development of the valleys and the
coast line. He was greatly impressed
with what he saw as regards progress,
enterprise, civic pride and condition
of groves and gardens and fields, but
he comes back with the sincere and
earnest feeling that Florida is the
best state in the Union.
"He talked with many men and
found considerable dissatisfaction
among them. The Pacific coast coun-
try is over-rated. The brilliant pros-
pectures sent out by the railroads and
real estate concerns and trades bodies
have allured the wealth of the east,
to their country, and these people
have builded on an imposing scale.
The man of average means or small
income has a struggle to keep up his
end. It is very much like a man with
a $2-a-day job eating at the St. Regis.
"Mr. Knott says our climate is far
superior to that of the Pacific coast.
He was chilled to the bone at times
and the next hour roasted like stand-
ing in front of a furnace. The hot,
dry heat reduced his weight in a cou-
ple of weeks fifteen pounds.
"While away he did a lot of mis-
sionary work, and interested many a
chance acquaintance in Florida."


B. M. Latham, superintendent of
the electric light and power plant at
St. Petersburg, removed a piece of
broken drill from the bottom of W. E.
Heathcote's well last night by means
of an electric magnet.
Some time ago Mr. Heathcote had
a well put down in his orange grove
for irrigating purposes. At a depth
of about 250 feet a piece of the drill
broke and the workmen were never
able to recover and bring the same
to the surface. As Mr. Heathcote de-
sired the well to be sunk deeper in
order to secure a greater flow of wa-
ter, renewed efforts were made to re-
move this obstruction, but without
avail. Mr. Latham conceived the idea
of an electric magnet being used. He
secured a piece of axle steel one inch
square and fourteen inches long. Sev-
en pounds of wire was wound around
it, this being wrapped with tape and
parafined to make it waterproof, a
covering of small rope was then put
on so that the magnet would not be
attracted to the sides of the steel tub-
ing in the welL A line of wire was
strung from the trolley line to the
well, and five thirty-two candlepower
lamps were placed on this line. The
magnet was attached to this line and
dropped into the well. The current of
550 volts was then turned on, and at
the second attempt the broken piece,
weighing sixteen pounds, was brought

Come all you lads and- lalee,
A story I'll relate;
It happened down in Florida,
In tht good old "Cracker state."
There came a man from Virginia,
Doc Griffin was his name;
He was a gentleman by birth,
But he was not 'to blame.
The blessings of a single life
With him did not agree;
So he'd often walk about the town
To see what he could see.
Of all the scrapes he got into
'Tis not for me to tell:
Until he met a lady,
And he knew he loved her well.
This maiden was a comely lass,
I can't recall her name;
She didn't fancy it herself,
And now it's not the same.
Doc's glances were so winning
They set her all aglow;
And she felt she wasn't sinning
When she told him so.
So fill the bumpers full tonight,
Let's drink with hearty cheer,
While yet the honeymoon is bright,
And everything is dear.

Enid, one of the prosperous, grow-
ing young cities of Oklahoma and the
southwest, adopted commission gov-
ernment by a vote of two to one. Enid
is about the sise of Coffeyville, Kans.,
which voted last week to adopt the
plan, and the progress made by these
two cities in the development of the
new rule will prove of great value to
numerous progressive cities of the
same class in Kansas and Oklahoma,
if, indeed, further proof is needed
anywhere to demonstrate its advan-
tages over the old system.
Of the towns in Kansas in that class
of municipalities, Hutchison and Inde-
pendence are already operating under
the new rule and realizing satisfac-
tory results. Tulsa, in Oklahoma, is
at work under the commission plan
and in a recent contract for paved
streets, thirty thousand dollars for
thirty blocks of paving as compared
to former contracts, were saved by
the property owners by the new rule.
Tulsa's experience ought to be all
that is needed to convince the smaller
cities that the modern plan is as ad-
vantageous for them as for the great-
er municipalities.
Enid is to be congratulated upon
its early determination to adopt a
form of government that will give it
the opportunity to grow rather than
continue a system that impedes de-
velopmcnt because of its inefficiency
and lack of direct business methods
in the administration of civic affairs.

An orator of the first class; a con-
structive statesman; a pure-minded
and high-minded man; he soared
above the storm as the eagle does;
he yearned passionately to serve his
people; he never held an office that
he did not adorn, and never had an
opportunity to do good for the public
that he did not fill with fruit-bearing
work; he was cast aside because he
did not bow to every idol of the mar-
ket place, did not bend his neck to
every yoke that smaller men wanted
him to bear.

of the petty alternations of night and

long darkness spreads itself over the
country many hidden things are re-

large a number.

Polioemen in Ancient City Must Not
Only Be Vigilant, But Models in
Dress and Behavior
Prohibiting smoking while on duty,
and prescribing that the officers shall
at all times maintain as neat a person-
al appearance as possible, Mayor
Masters started off the month Friday
afternoon by issuing orders of a gen-
era Inature relating to the police de-
partment to Chief of Police Benet.
In the orders the mayor remarks
tht he has heard many compliment-
ary comments relative to the person-
al and general appearance of the offi-
cers while on duty and he makes the
suggestions referred to.
The communication to the chief is
as follows:
C. H. Benet, City Marshal, City:
Dear Sir-during the month of Sep-
tember this office has received a num-
ber of compliments as to the person-
nel and general appearance of the po-
lice officers of our city.
In order that the regard which is
now shown toward our police force
be retained and that a very high
standard reached. I would suggest the
1st. All patrolemn while on duty
shall keep their blouses buttoned,
their shoes shined, buttons polished,
and their linen clean, and if tie or
cravat is worn that it be black.
2nd. All conversation other than
that which pertains strictly to duty
must not be indulged in.
3rd. Under no circumstances shall
they. when on duty, congregate with
other patrolment or citizens.
4th. Smoking should not be indulg-
ed in while on duty.
5th. Visiting places of amusement,
unless assigned on duty at such plac-
es, will not be allowed. Should the
patrolmen desire to visit such place
or places of amusement, he should ob-
tain a furlough, from the marshal.
6th. The police officers should ever
remember that they are the guard-
ians of peace and protection of life
and poprerty, and should always be
alert to the performance of their du-
Yours truly,


I notice with pleasure and pride
your editorial, "Napoleons of the
Farm." Coming from such a valua-
ble exponent of our country's oppor-
tunities, I feel that you have stated
correctly that this important branch
of our commerce has never given us
a "leader" of consequence.
I live in Birmingham, Ala., and my
knowledge and experience in the
south's principal products, cotton,
sugar and rice, have proved to my
mind that the alluvial lands of our
section of the south offer the great-
est opportunity for capital.
If King Cotton, our great "money
getter" from the marts of the world,
would be capitalized and its produc-
tion carried on as are our great steel
and kindred industries, the stocks
and bonds emanating therefrom would
show equally good dividendd returns
and prove as safe as any banker or
trust company could ask.
With the present price of farm
commodities no sane business man
can make an error in investing his
capital in farms, especially where
such undertaking is carreid on in a
business-like manner. Like Mr. Hill,
I predict great things for the farmers.
To the one using l)rudence, scientific
kiowl'ige, and above all. mon'y, re-

'urn will he greater than in city ven-
tures. and at the same time involve

On Friday night, the eve of the
Judgment day, Prophet Van Sickle
maid that Tampa would go, and that
be would rebuke any who doubted
his message.
Old Brother Lise Kersey arose and
said that he had not had such a mes-
sage, and asked all who had had it
to stand-he wanted to see who they

About nine stood up. Then Mrs.
Van Sickle began to jabber, and her
son said: "Hear that; God is rebuk-
ing you. He has spoken through my
mother that Tampa is to sink and
that September 18 is the time." He
said that he would advise everyone
not to go near the city after 4:30 p.
Brother Bob Evans said Tampa was
a "set of murderers," and that it had
to be destroyed because it would not
receive the invitation the Holy Ghost
had brought.
And Mrs. Davis, formerly of Tam-
pa, who forgot the cow in her haste
to leave, stood up and told of her ex-
perience and said that if Tampa did
not sink they had better,burn their
Bibles. for the Word of God would
not be true.
They had been fasting and praying
since Thursday noon for all this pro-
phecy to come true.
The Day of Doom
On the 18th, about 11 o'clock, one
of the saints was under the power
and said she had a message from God
to tell the people-tlhat they must
pray as they had never prayed before
-for the Devil was trying to prevent
the death-angel from coming and de-
stroying the people of Tampa.
So they finally saw two angels, one
black and one white, the white one
hovering over Pleasant Grove, and
the black one over Sydney, on the way
to Tampa.
All Saturday they remained in pray-
er and unknown tongue jabbering,
and. Sunday morning, the 19th, they
came shouting out of the tabernacle,
with their hands up, "Tampa is
gone! Tampa is gone; Thank God!
Thank God!"
Then they sent two young men,
Cliston Townsend and Marcus Van
Sickle, to Turkey Creek to get a
wire from Tampa If it was still in ex-
Istence. On their return, the whole
sect ran out to meet them-and the
word came, "Tampa is all right!"
Then there was commotion in
"God's Church."
Somebody had lied!
Then the prophet, Howard Van
Sickle, said he didn't think anybody
could say that he ever said that Tam-
pa would be destroyed.
These false prophets should read
Jeremiah 23, and see what the Lord
has to say about them.
And I say, as Jesus said, "Go not
after them."-Tampa Tribune.


"Why don't you print the news?"
"We try to," explained the editor.
"We have daily bulletins from both
Cook and Peary and special corres-
pondence in all the world's capitals.
What news have we overlooked?"
"A neighbor of ours had her hus-
band arrested yesterday and your pa-
per hasn't a word about the affair."-
Louisville Courier-Journal.

Curioits eof a Nature Colony-Al-
most Back to the Garden of
Eden Costume
A colony of "nature lovers," on a
pine-clad hill, at Waidberg, near Zu-
rich, are undergoing the "no clothes
and fresh-air cure."
A correspondent of the Paris edi-
tion of the New York Herald describ-
es a visit to the place and a country
walk with some of the "patients."
The "costume" in general use for
out-of-doors is for men a pair of bath-
ing drawers and sandals, while the
ladies wear a loose-fitting decolletee
chemise. "I clothed in the costume,"

says the correspondent, "and started
forth on a walk across country with
half a dozen of the Waidbergers
There was Lieutenant Muller, the well
known Danish authority on physical
development, whose various books
on that subject are known all over
the world; his son, a boy some twelv<
years old; M. Edouard Goujon, a so-
ciety man and strict vegetarian;
Mme. Poire, sister of the late 'Carar
d'Ache,' and Mme. Akimoff, a Rus
sian, and an enthusiast of the opera
air and light cures.
"The feeling of thus walking about
unencumbered by clothing is undoubt-
edly delightful, and even if pebbles
do get in between the soles of your
feet and the sandals they can easily
be dislodged with a smart, short kick.
Flies and mosquitoes are naturally a
bit annoying, but they are not too
'Through woods and over the brow
of a beautiful grass-covered hill we
went. All the members of the party
were brimming over with good spir-
its, and Mme Poire full of exhilira-
tion, flew off, accompanied by the
boy Muller, into a field filled with
light mauve crocus bloom, picked the
pretty natural flowers and a fresh-
culled bunch of them in her hands,
danced with wild animation a 'pas
seul,' which was very classic and
Greek-like, her meagre costume and
slender figure lending themselves to
the idea of ancient times.
"Continuing the walk we came
across peasants. They were hay-
making or on their way to the fields.
I own a guilty feeling came over me
at the thought of being about with so
little clothes before these eminently
simple, respectable folk, but they did
not appear to mind, and, as I judged,
intentionally did not look our way.

partook of that frugal meal it wotld

It is a high honor that is conferred
upon us when God sends to us human
hearts to be comforted or human
souls to be helped Yet every thought-
ful person must tremble as he ac-
cepts the responsibility of such deli-
cate and holy work. It is a serious
moment when there is brought to a
surgeon a case on the skillful treat-
ment of which a life depends, or when
a physiican stands by a bedside to
administer remedies at the crisis of a
fever. But it is a far more serious
moment when a h-uman life is put into
one's hands to be cured of its faults
or comforted in its sorrow, or to have
its heart's wounds healed. We need
divine skill and wisdom, and great
delicacy for such sacred work Only
Christ can teach us how to deal with
human lives in their need and sorrow.

Ocala, Fla., Oct. 2, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
I read over the Masonic address,
which appears in full in the Banner
this morning, just to see if any er-
rors had inadvertently slipped in, and
find that so far as the words are con-
cerned there appears to be no mis-
takes. I notice, however, that in sev-
eral places where capital letters are
used in the manuscript, small letters
are substituted. That makes very lit-
tle difference, so far as the uninitiat-
ed are concerned, but to the eye of
a well informed Mason it is conspic-
uous. Then, too, I notice semi-colons
have slipped in in two or three places
where commas should appear. This
you know, sometimes makes a world
of difference, as will appear by refer-
ence to the clipping from "Docket,"
which I herewith hand yous s a part
of "these few remarks." It will re-
mind your readers of our own "dis-
junction, conjunction age of discre-
tion act," as handed down to us by
our legislature at the last session.,
Very truly,

A Little Matter of Punctuation
Massachusetts has a law, known
as the "semi-colon law," under which
a misplaced semi-colon rega!ates the
liquor traffic in the city of Boston.
But this is not a circumstance to an
omitted comma, as instance in the
following act of a late legislature of
Massachusetts: "Whoever operates
an automobile or a motorcycle on any
public way or private way laid out
under the authority of law recklessly
or while under the influence of liquor,
or so as to endanger the lives or safe-
ty of the public," etc. It is now as-
serted that the reckless motorist can
go as he pleases on highways which
have not been "laid out under the in-
fluence of liquor.'

Mr. Saddler lost a very valuable
young horse this week from a very
peculiar accident He came into town
leaving the horse tied to graze, and
it is presumed that the length of the
rope is more than Mr. Saddler had
thought, and permitted the animal to
get too close to a hive of bees. The
result was that myriads of bees
swarmed over the horse, stinging him
fearfully, and when the owner reach
ed home he had succumbed to the
poison inflicted and was already deAd.
Mr. Saddler's loss is deeply regretted
by his friends as well as by himself.-

f c angea the Faes of a Part of
Neorther Vermet.
One hundred years ago the sites of
Glover and Barton, In the northern
part of Vermont were mostly swamp
land. A mill was located by a brook
which was fed from one of the large
ponds three or four miles from what
is now the village of Glover. These
mountain ponds or lakes, two or three
miles square, are high up In the Green
mountains and are among the most
attractive spots in New England.
On June 6, 1810. three men went
up the brook to see If a little more
water could be let down to the mill.
They removed some earth, when sud-
denly the quicksands gave way, and
they saw that the whole lake was lis-
ble to be upon them.
Frantically they questioned. "Who
will save the miller and his wife?"
Spencer Chamberlain, the fleetest of
foot, ran as fast as possible through
the tangle of thick woods to give warn-
ing. while the other men escaped to
higher ground. He found the miller
away and the miller's wife grinding at
the mill. She became helpless with
horror; but. breathless as her rescuer
was from his flight, he succeeded in
dragging and carrying her up the bill
out of reach of the rushing water.
The miller's. horse was drowned and
all of his hard earned property swept
away in a twinkling.
The water rushed along, carrying
everything before it, digging out ra-
vines, filling up hollows and making a
new surface to the land generally.
some of it reaching Lake Mempbrema-
gog. more than a dozen miles away.
It brought down so much sand that it
filled the swamps and made them fit
for habitation.
- The site of the lake is now called
Runaway pond or Dry pond and the
road leading to it Runaway road. The
ground which was once the bed of
the lake oi spongy and shakes when
walked upon. Hay is grown there, but
has to be cut by hand and carried off
on pitchforks. as a horse would sink
into the soggy mams.-Boston Globe.

The Swift and Turbulent Waters of
the Narrows.
The waters of the narrows are
treacherous. It is a place of terrible
tides. Viewed from the precipitous
shores, the surging waters are mag-
nificent. The scene has been compared
with the Hudson above New York
city. The waters of that part of
Puget sound which extends to Olym-
pia. Mud bay. Shelton and Henderson
bay. a vast Inland sea within itself.
all flow in and out of the narrows.
In the upper reaches of the sound
some twenty-five or thirty miles from
the narrows the tides attain a height
of more than twenty feet. When the
tides begin to fall all the accumulated
water rushes out through the narrows
like a gre:t river at flood. In like
manner wheu the tide sets in the di-
rection of Olympia the narrows be-
come a swift and turbulent stream.
Frightful whirlpools are numerous.
Streams running powerfully in con-
trary directions strike and the water
Large steamboats struck by the con-
trary currents groan and creak and
sway under the strain. This being so.
it is no wonder that small craft often
overturn in the narrows. A whirlpool
has been known to seize a rowboat and
twist it round and round until the
rowers almost despaired of coming out
alive. It is a marvelously beautiful
water with all its terrors, and hun-
dreds and thousands will continue to
find pleasure there, notwithstanding
its occasional tragedies. The rumble
of the tides when running at full is
like the distant rumble of the ocean.
The terrors f the sea are an element
of its charm, and so it is with the ter-
rors of the narrows.-Tacoma Ledger.

I There is sound principle and right-
,eous doctrine contained in an Ocala
Banner editorial on "An Inland Can-
didate." Editor Harris reviews brief-
ly the senatorial situation, concluding
that of the five candidates three have
the Jacksonville point of view and the
other two the Pensacola range of vis-
ion, and that no one of the five is in
truth from the inland and for that
reason cannot represent in his work
the demands and needs of the inland
as distinguished from those of the
The Banner deplores the tendency
of the times to place politics on a
purely commercial basis with the mot-
to, "I want my district to get a fair
share of the loot," saying that this
has come to be not an unfamiliar ex-
pression. The Banner is emphatical-
ly correct. If such a motto were
adopted by any man who is placed in
the ranks of the statesmen of the day
it is sufficient to mark him at the
same time as being unworthy of the
designation. True statesmanship
looks not to the selfish or partial good,
but to the general good, and no man
holding a place in the councils of the
state or nation is an example of the
true type who would set up a selfish
standard. The best evidence that we
have of the falseness of this position
is that those men who have written
the record in this wise for themselves
have failed in accomplishing any con-
siderable or permanent good for their
people or for themselves. The Banner
is not unappreciative of the reflex
benefits that come to the entire state
through the development of the ports,
but it would have the appropriation
so apportioned that each port would
come in for its just share of the
benefits. The country is so aroused
at the present over the improvement
of waterways that this problem is
working itself out in a most satisfac-
tory manner. This was demonstrated
some three years ago when the har-
bor of Savannah was given an appro-
priation of a million dollars when the
Savannah district had no representa-
tive in congress. It was potent testi-
mony of the silent kind going to show
that the recommendations of the en-
gineers and the study of the situation
by Theodore Burton, then chairman
of the rivers and harbors committee,
weighed more than the efforts of any
congressman. And yet we see the ef-
fort made by some -to credit every ap-
propriation for harbor improvement
to the direct endeavors of some pet
congressman. Under such circum-
stances as cited in the case of Savan-
nah it would be interesting to hear
how it happened that Savannah got
a million for its harbor when the
same congress appropriated only
$365,000 for the harbor of Jackson-
In the face of the real and fabled
statesmanship of the past, and with
all of the cry about us that this is a
day of commercialism, we believe that
there was never a time when breadth
of view. liberality of opinion and un-
prejudiced direction of thought in pub-
lic affairs stood better opportunity for
being received and supported by the
people. The interior has always pro-
duced the best brain and the most
lofty ideals of statecraft. We are
prepared to agree largely if not entire-
ly with the Banner, and may be par-
doned for expressing some disappoint-
ment that it did not name its candi-
date when reminded to do so by the
Metropolis.-Miami Metropolis.
