entirely pave any street and could
only proceed under the rights given
it by special act of the legislature and
require the property owners "on each

the city paying the other third. Mr.
Brand followed Mr. Burford with a
short talk and the matter stood at
that until the question of the pas
sage of the ordinance was reached
later in the evening.
Mr. R. R. Carroll addressed the
council on the lack of drainage at his
property on South Third street and
the primary school yard and other
properties there, and the great det
riment to health and damage to prop
erty that the deplorable condition
brought about and asked for relief.
During the heavy rains, water rushes
down the street and down South
Fourth' street, from as far up as Mr.
Meffert's and Mr. Gerig's homes and
inundates the property of the entire
section adjacent to tne primary
school and along South Fourth street

street department could temporarily

when, if ever, $outh Fourth street is
opened, under the condemnation pro proceedings,

certain properties. On motion of Mr
Roess, the offer of Mr. R. B. Bullock
to do all of the legal work necessary
to push the condemnation suits thru
the courts and open the street was
accepted. The clerk was instructed
to draw a warrant for the court costs
in the suits and Mr. Bullock will be
requested to proceed with dispatch to
put the matter through. For tern

the street department, in conjunction
with the city engineer, immediately
look the situation over and devise
some means of temporarily carrying
all or part of the water off, and to do
the work as quickly as possible. The
entire council admitted that the situa
tion at the schoolhouse, aside from
the individual property, was bad, and
should be remedied.

Most of us poor outsiders who form
the ranks of the opposition want this
depot built according to the original
program, because we feel that if the
depot is not built now there will be
one delay after another, world with without
out without end, to prevent the construction
of a union depot in Ocala at any

to Mr. R. T. Adams, who was one of
the chosen few in that famous meet

there for. He will tell you so him

will find that most of the men pres present

get along without it and on that ac

For example: I have been waiting a
long time hoping to get a whack at a
good big lumber bill.' D. S. Welch and
E..E. Converse operate novelty works.
They have been waiting patiently for
the first of November, hoping to get
a chance at a nice bill of millwork.
There are a number of carpenters in
town who expect to find employment
on this job, and, as I said before, we
reed the money, and I can conceive of
no better time in Ocala's history to
start something that right now.
Every one of the men on his job will

the verdict of the Florida public.
Years ago, soft phosphate was used to
quite an extent in field, garden and
grove, especially the grove. Mines j
were in operation, and it was common
in the market. All kinds of crop pro
duction increased steadily, but the
use of soft phosphate died out so that
the mines were all closed for years.

data is in abundance. I refer you to
Dr. II. G. Bystra, chemist, of Brooks Brooks-ville,
ville, Brooks-ville, Fla. His work is accepted not
only in Florida, but in the European
market as final. Dr. Bystra is not only
a chemist, but also a practical farmer
and orange grower. His opinion is
that soft phosphate is "unsurpassed"
as a source of phosphoric acid for use
on oranges and all other fruit trees,
and for all crops needing phosphoric
acid. I also refer you to such practical
growers as Dr. W. II. Conibear and
Mr. E. L. Kinney, of Lakeland; Mr.
W. A. Fulton of Brooksville; Col.
Thomas Palmer, C. M. Knott and Geo.
N. Benjamin, of Tampa. I could also
name others by the score who have
used soft phosphate and prefer it.
Now, as to "reports from other
states being worthless" to us on ac
count of different conditions: If those
reports were from one locality, or
even one state, it might do to say
that they were worthless, but when
they cover territory from Texas to
Massachusetts, including such states
as Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsyl
vania, Maryland, New Jersey, Rhode
Island and several others, in fact
nearly all of the states which have
real, practical experimental stations,

of this state. So far as I know, every
state which has carried on any exten extensive
