You must wake and call be early, call me early, mother dear;
Tomorrow 'ill be the happiest time of all the glad new year;
Of all the glad new year, mother, the maddest, merriest day;
For I'm to be Queen o' the May mother, I'm to be Queen o the May.
There's many a black, black eye, they say, but none so bright as mine;
There's Margaret and Mary, there's Kate and Caroline:
But none so fair as little Alice in all the land they say,
So I'm to be Queen o the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.
I sleep so sound all night, mother, that I shall never wake,
If you do not call me loud when the day begins to break:
But I must gather knots of flowers, and buds and garlands gay,
For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.
As I came up the valley whom think ye should I see,
But Robin leaning on the bridge beneath the hazel tree?
He thought of that sharp look, mother, I gave him yesterday
But I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.
He thought I was- a ghost, mother, for I was all in white,
And I ran by him without speaking, like a flash of light.
They call me cruel-hearted, but I care not what they say,
For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.
They say he's dying all for love, but that can never be:
They say his heart is breaking, mother what is that to me?
There's many a bolder lad 'ill woo me any summer day,
And I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.
Little Effie shall go with me to the green,
And you'll be there, too, mother, to see me made the Queen;
For the shepherd lads on every side 'ill come from far away,
And I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.
The honeysuckle round the porch has wov'n its wavy bowers,
And by the meadow trenches blow the sweet cuckoo flowers;
And the wild marsh marigold shines like fire in swamps and hollows gray
And I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be queen o' the May.
The night winds come and go, mother, upon the meadow grass,
And the happy stars above them seem to brighten as they pass;
And there will not be a drop of rain the whole of the livelong day,
And I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to .be Queen o' the May.
All the valley, mother, 'ill be fresh and green and still,
And the cowslip and the crowfoot are all over the hill,
And the rivulet in the flowery dale 'ill merrily glance and play,
For I'm to be Queen o the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.
So you must wake and call me early,, call me early, mother dear,
Tomorrow 'ill be the happiest time of all the glad new year:
Tomorrow 'ill be of all the year, the maddest, merriest day,
For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.

Mr. Walter was born in England in
1843, and came to America in 1849.
He came to Florida in 1866, and set settled

Speaking of curfew laws, the
Times-Union says there is neither
use nor excuse for such, and reads
parents a sensible and timely lecture
on their duties to their children. The
T.-U., however, doesn't go far enough.
It doesn't lecture the boys who insist
on being bad boys in spite of all par parents
ents parents can do, and if the T.-U. doesn't
know that some of the worst boys in
the world come from the best homes,
it hasn't been as observant as a paper
of its caliber should be. Also, the T. T.-U.

Nobody is more willing than the
Star to admit that there is more than
one side to every question, and it has
already said the people who want to
secede from Marion to Bloxham have
some justice in their movement. But
anybody who will take the map mark marked
ed marked out for the new county will find it
difficult to see anything but cold cold-blooded
blooded cold-blooded selfishness for Williston in the
lines laid out. The Star has already
shown how the proposed division
would gougo Marion county, but it
would gauge Alacnua as badly and
simply ruin Levy. The line starts in
Marion a little west of Micanopy, and
runs south fifteen miles, then west
three miles and south another fifteen
miles to a point on the S. S." O. & G. a
mile this side of Leroy. From there it
runs thirteen miles due west into
Levy county, then dips five miles
south to the Withlacoochee river,

up the coast to the Wacassee river,
follows the Wacassee to opposite Ell Ell-zey,

to the Alachua line, and from there
west to the Suwannee river. It cuts

most carefiiiiy picked out by a bunch
of self-seeking politicians with a view
to establishing and maintaining their

but the interests that rule in Ocala
have so far been too strong for them.
Ocala, in the eyes of this section is
a parasite, a vampire. Who is to
blame for this condition of affairs? No
one but the so-called business men of
Ocala. Gentlemen, you call yourselves
business men, but you are of the type
that would kill the goose that lays the
golden egg. If the secessionists should
have the good fortune to succeed this
time, there will be no one, absolutely
no one,' to blame but your own short shortsighted,

it is not pleasant to think of, but it is

FOR THE SEEKER
No Question for a Mathematician,
Bat Just Common Business
Ocala, Fla., April 19, 1915.
Editor Star: I notice that "Infor "Information
mation "Information Seeker" quotes the Manufac Manufacturers
turers Manufacturers Record on hydro-electric de developments
velopments developments through various southern
states and asks the question why
these developments are being made.
It seems to a man up a tree that this
is being done to make money, or at
least the capitalists think so before
they invest their money. I don't be believe
lieve believe that it takes a mathematician
to figure that out. As for the cost per
k. w. h. generated by water, it de
pends largely on the cost of the de developed
veloped developed horsepower. In some sec sections
tions sections of the country the cost is about
fifty per cent less than others. This
is on account of being able to secure
a good head of water without having
to purchase large tracts of land,
which all goes into the cost per k.
But I fail to see what this Tias to
do with the cost of electricity in
Ocala. We need no mathematician to
figure that out. I do not believe that
any one has said, or at least I have
not heard them say, that electricity
could be generated as cheap with en
gines and boilers, using wood or coal
for fuel, as could be done with water.
And I doubt if "Information Seeker"
has heard any one say so himself.
Again, what has that to do with the
price of eggs or electricity in Ocala?
We need no mathematician to figure
that out. The question before the
house is this: What will the consum consumers
ers consumers get electricity for, and not what
does it cost big hydro-electric cor corporations
porations corporations to manufacture it. Will
they sell it to this municipality as
cheap as the city can make it. Will
they or will they not? That is the
question. It does not take a mathe mathematician
matician mathematician to figure that out.
Now Mr. "Information Seeker," if
you will take the trouble to seek some
information from the district around
Birmingham and Bessemer, or prac practically
tically practically all over the state of Alabama;
in fact, several other states, viz:
Georgia, South Carolina, North Caro Carolina
lina Carolina and Tennessee, I think you will
find that there is one big power trust,
and that for every horsepower in wa
ter it has a duplicate in steam, and is
so entrenched that it would take
heaven and earth to rout it, as the
state failed and so did the govern
ment on this same Warrior river that
the Manufacturers Record refers to
You can also get some good informa information
tion information from Mrs. Longstreet at Gaines
ville, Ga., in regard to the great Tal
lulan Falls development. Ihese are
the people that know why these great
developments are being made and they
know what the price of electricity is,
in the midst of this great hydro-elec
trie development. You can also get
some information from the mayor of
Atlanta in regard to this cheap power.
I believe that if you will investigate
you will find that there was a great
trial for a municipal plant in Atlanta
to get relief, and it was finally hushed
up by giving a reduction in rates
from 10 and 12 cents per k. w. h. to
the cheap rate of 7 cents per k. w. h.,
which is now in effect Still they draw
on hydro-electric plants located in
about nve states, rio one has ever
heard of any cheap power in this dis
trict around this great development.
It is take the power or shut down.
There are very few of these cities
that own and control their plants or
have ever owned them. The chances
for municipal ownership there- now
are very slim, unless one of our local
politicians and great calculators will
go be. a Moses for them, as they
have never had one who was equal to
But what has this to do with the
price of electricity in Ocala ? Mr.
"Information Seeker" you have proba
bly never had the information im
parted to you that during the year of
1911 of our Lord, that this same and
great cheap power was offered to the
city for the sum of 3 cents per k. w.
h. at the switchboard, carrying a con
tract of 10 years with it. This would
have expired in 1921. Why has it
gone down to 2 cents now? Has the
water become more plentiful and
heavier, or is it just a softening of the
heart? For your information I will
say that the city is selling this same
party current on his premises at 3
cents per k. w. h. with a minimum of
one dollar up, instead of 35,000 kilo
watts as the minimum that was offer
ed the city by this hydro-electric pow power
er power company. I don't believe you will
need a mathematician to figure that
. mis an air iooks something like a
game of cards, with the city's hand
turned up on the table and the other
hand turned down to draw from. The
city may not draw the "Old Maid,"
providing the cards are not stacked;
then again; it may. It is a game of
chance. I would thank "Mathema "Mathematician"
tician" "Mathematician" or "Information Seeker" if
they will figure out where the "Old
Maid" is located in this stack of cards
that the"city is to draw from.
Yours very truly,
