I New York, Dec. 27.-A letter signed
i by J. Plerpont Morgan, Dr. Lyman Ab-
bott and other prominent citizens of
New York, was addressed to Secretary
of State Ellhu Root yesterday, direct-
ing his attention to conditions In the
Congo Free State, where it is asserted
"flagrant inhumanity exists," and urg-
ing him, on behalf of the American peo-
pie, "to use the moral support'" of the
unitedd States government to correct
the abuses the Congo natives are sl.
leged to be suffering from.
There is overwlheanming evidence that
the luckless natives of the Congo Free
State and French Congo adjoining are
being subjected to the most inhuman
crueltles in order to extort ivory and
rubber from them. The Congo Free
State is virtually owned by King Leo-

A. 0. FARRIS
Mr. A. 0. Farrls. who for thirty
years was a good citizen of Ocala. is
dead. He died at the home of his son,
Judge Ion 1- Farris, in Jacksonville.
Monday and was buried Christmas day.
Monday. The remains left Jackson-
ville that evening for Ocala for burial.
Mr. Far Is was a boiler maker by
trade, and a good one too. which vo-
cation he followed until a few years
ago, When a stroke of paralysis in-
capacitated him for work. He was a
native of South Carolina and in the
breaking out of the Civil War served
faithfully as a Confederate soldier. His
wife is conducting a hotel at Inglis.
It is very evident that the head of-
fcials of the A. C. L. are beginning to
realize that the poor. inefficient and
unsafe service they are giving the peo-
ple in this division of their road is no
credit to them and are losing business
thereby. This Is stirring them up to
the extent that some of their head men
are coming around and taking a look
at matters and things. These in town
are satisfied now that what they see
Justifies the outraged cry of the peo-
ple. They dislike the Idea of these
public outcries for it carries to the
ear of the tourist, who had been think-
ing seriously of taking a trip over
theft lines In Florida and because of
these damaging reports as to the phys-
ical condition of their road, they change
their route to the East Coast Railway,
whose roadbed and rolling stock has
been kept in good condition. Of course,
the A. C. L. is now full of enthusiasm
In the betterment of their road and
Its service and by and by it will no
doubt be greatly improved, but then
this should have been part of their
business several years ago. They claim
that they spend over $600,000 in the
state of Florida and their receipts were
over $800,000 during the past year in
this state, and that this should be con-
sidered and placed to their credit. Just
so, But they do not tell us how much
of this amount was paid out or is a
debit to their earnings, nor the expense
of wrecks caused by the bad condition
of their road.
Dr. James A. Pittman's evidence
against the A. C. L. in his passage from
Jacksonville to Ocala is interesting,
because he worked his way. He left
Jacksonville the day before Christmas
at 9 p. m. hoping to reach Ocala by
2:30 Christmas morning, but never
got here until after six o'clock Christ-
mas evening. He said that during
that time he had served as fireman,
wood hauler and express messenger
and never worked so hard or got so
dirty before in his life as he did on
m1i-tn -i question, r. iTnnmarruTI-
an A. C. L. surgeon and his pride for
that position got the best of him when
the engine of his train broke down
8 miles out of Jacksonville, trouble
began and he stuck close by It until
he got to Ocala, tired and hungry, and
he nearly disposed of a whole turkey.
Wallace Stovall with his usual liber-
ality, generous disposition and kindly
nature, entertained the force of the
Tribune Christmas eve with a "gold
shower," which took the form of new
$5 and $10 gold pieces Just from the
mint. The employees of the Tribune
in turn gave the editor a beautiful
carpet, which now adorns the his of-
fice and adds comfort to his surround-
Captain McIlvalne had the misfor-
tune to step on a banana peeling while
attempting to board his train yester-
day, and sprained his back. He is at
home today for repairs.
Mr. Fred Alworth, who several years
ago was the agent here for the A. C. L.
railroad, is now located at Middleburg
and engaged in the saw mill business.
He was in town today visiting friends.
Mr. Redwine and wife of Gainesville,

That n f Ao As ufia vry.
We regard beer as a food and the
business of brewing beer one of our
most important Industries. When we
tell our readers that without exception
there is no other brewery in the world
so absolutely clean in its process of
manufacture as Pabst, we speak from
exact knowledge of conditions. The
monster Pabst Brewery at Milwaukee
represents an outlay of millions of
dollars and many of those millions
have been expended to make the Pabst
exclusive process absolutely clean.
Pabst Beer stands alone today, the only
food product that from the beginning
to the end of Its manufacture Is abso-
lutely beyond reach of even the con-
taminating germs of the air.
Doctors boll their instruments in
water to sterilize them. Pabst boils
his brew in closed kettles and thus
sterilizes It. From there it passes
through sterilized pipes to sterilized
hermetically sealed tanks where it
is fermented. Then through more
sterilized pipes it goes to sterilized
hermetically sealed storage tanks
and when bottled it is pasteurized.
Throughout the entire process it never
is touched by human hands and comes
in contact only with sterilized air.
This process of manufacture is the
exclusive Pabst method. It is one rea-
son for the "always the same, always
the best" reputation of Pabst Beer.
The cleanest beer and the richest
beer, Pabst Beer has no equal as a
mild, healthful beverage. It is brewed
only from Pabst eight-day malt,
choicest hops and pure water. Pabst
eight-day malt, the perfect malt, con-
tains all tlhe food qualities of the finest
barley in predigested form. It is this
high food value and the Pabst exclu-
sive process of brewing and thoroughly
aging the beer, that gives Pabst beer its
rich, mellow flavor, its refreshing set.

ABOUT THE EYES
Your eyes are subject to as many
different defects as the body is to de-
formaties. Whereas it should be one
of the most perfect organs of the body.
It is natural that you should need
glasses for reading, writing, sewing
and other close work. Between the
ages of 40 to 50, a perfect eye should
need glasses at this age to relieve them
from the strain when used for elome or
near work. Many young people need
glasses early in life to relieve the
various forms of eyestrain, which is
the cause of 75 per cent. of all head.
aches. Just think: It has been proven
by eminent authorities that 3 people
ovt of every 4 that have headaches
nave defective eyes. Glassee are the
remedy, because they CORRECT the
DEFECTS. When properly fitted there

For people who are run-down and nev-

pepsla, headache, biliousnes, or torpid
liver, coated tongue with bitter taste in
the morning and poor appetite, it be-
comes necessary to turn to same tonic or

Nature's most valuable health giving
agents are to be found In forest plants
Nearly forty years ago, Dr. IRV. Pierce,
now consulting physician to the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgi.al Ins:irtue, at Buffalo,
N. Y., discovered that by sclpntli5caily
extracting and combining certain medici-
nal principles from nati'-e roots, taken
from our American forests. he could pro-
duce a medicine which was marvelously
efficient in curing cases of blood disrcaer
and liver and stomach trouble as weil as
many other chronic. or lUn -ring ail-
ments. Thi5 concentrated extract of
Nature's vitality he named "Golden MJxl-
Ical Discovery." It purlties the blood by
putting the stomach and liver into
healthy condition, thereby helping the
dige:;tion and assimilation of food which
feeds the blood. Thereby it cures weak
stomach indigestion, torpid liver, or bil-
iousness, and kindred derangements.
If you have coated tongue, with bitter
or bad taste in the morning, frequent
headaches, feel weak, easily tired, stitches
or pain In side, back gives out easily and
aches, belching of gas, constipation, or
irregular bowels, feel flashes of heat al-
ternating with chilly sensations or kin-
dred symptoms, they point to derange-
ment of your stomach, liver and kidneys,

will correct more speedily and perma-
nently than any other known agent. Con-
tains no alcohol or habit-forming drugs.

Ush on wrapper.
