The Fourth of July was a cool, clear

bay sparkling with a thousand shim shimmering

'At noon dinner was served on long

LL hail our country's natal day!
Let our dear flag float free, unfurled.
As erstwhile, when our claim of rights

Went forth, a challenge to the world.
Auspicious day, when Liberty,
" Long crushed beneath Oppression's heel.
Stood firm, erect, undaunted, free.
No more the Tyrant's power to feeL
For Freedom, choicest gift to man,
Our sires on many a battlefield
Proclaimed that they would by it stand.
Prepared to die, but not to yield.
Oh, never may that day dawn here
When Liberty shall be inurned
And 'love of power or sordid gain
Shall cause her to be basely spurned.
But ever may the patriot's fame
Grow brighter with the passing years.
And even may the patriot's fire
Inflame our hearts, subdue our fears.

Ought to Have Been Named George.
Trince William Frederick, eldest of
the four sons of the German crown
prince and probable future occupant
of the throne of Germany, was born
July 4, 10i. Many American newspa newspapers
pers newspapers suggested to the baby's father and
to the German emperor that George
would be a good name for the boy. As
Germany's ruler he should be friendly
to the United States.

The Day That Unites.

"Wherever Americans are congregat

ed, whether in the United States or In

the farthest corner of the earth, there

Is rejoicing on Independence day. On
other days discordant notes may be

heard here and there, but on this day
there Is only harmony and a feeling of
thankfulness for the good fortune that
has come to the fatherland since the
first Fourth of July was celebrated.

While it was known that Mr. J. W.
Sanders was helpless and very sick,
it was not supposed that his life was
so near the end, so the news of his
death yesterday afternoon came as a
shock to his friends.
Mr. Sanders was a native of Cedar
Springs, Tenn.. and was about 53
years of age. He had lived in Ocala
and Marion county for something
over twenty years, and until about ten
years ago was a citizen of this city.
He then moved to Early Bird, where
he has a big farm, and where he has
ever since resided.
Mr. Sanders married Miss Minnie
Frost of this city, who with two sons.
Milton and Raymond, aged about 18
and 16 years, survives him. Another
son died some years ago in this city,
at their home on South Third street.
Mr. Sanders also leaves a sister who
resides at Cedar Springs, and who is
expected in Ocala today.
"Jim" Sanders was one of the best
known men in Ocala and the western
part of the county. He was a man of
cheerful and generous disposition, and
was the spirit of faith and kindness
embodied to his friends.
The funeral will be held this after afternoon
noon afternoon at 4:30 o'clock at the home of
Mrs. Frost. Interment will be In

so firmly held that the murderer had
found it necessary to sever It with
a knife. The knife itself was there,
for proof of this; the sheen of light
upon its mother-of-pearl handle caught
the Irishman's eye.
Picking it up, he subjected It to a
close examination that, however.

the crime was resolved Into solicitude
for the girl. What could have hap happened

the servants, whose sudden desertion

had left the house so sinlsterly quiet?
Swept on by a fervor of anxiety on
the girl's behalf, O'Rourke glanced
quickly about the study to assure him

self that he had overlooked nothing of
importance, then passed out Into the
main hall or reception-room. Here the
most searching inspection revealed
nothing amiss. He moved on to the
other room on the main floor and

found himself in the dining-room; here

again all was In perfect order.

The kitchen offices In the rear ol

the house next received his attention;

he found them completely untenanted,
having apparently been abandoned in
desperate haste. Everything was In

disorder; the meal he had been In

vited to partake of was cooking to cin cinders
ders cinders in pots and ovens; a heavy of

fense of burning food thickened the
atmosphere. Half-stifled, he left the
place as quickly as possible, returned

to the main hall and ascended to the

upper story.

Here he found three bed-chambers

and a bath. He first entered Sypher's,
then the room evidently occupied by
Miss Pynsent, finally what was un

questionably a guest-chamber, discov

ering nothing noteworthy until he
reached the latter. And here he re received

A guess formed vaguely in his brain,
and suddenly curdled into, a suspicion.

He took the gloves in his hand, ex

amining them for marks of identifica

He stumbled hurriedly from the

room and down the stairs, returning

to the study where Sypher's body
lay; tortured by mounting fears, he
stood and looked blankly about him.

at a loss where next to turn, if almost
nreternatnrally alive to every sound

or sight that might afford him a clue!

that crawled like a viper In his brain.
Had he, after all, been deceived In

summate his chosen crime?

For he was now ready to believe Des

Trebes the prime mover in this terri

ble affair; he no longer entertained
a shred of doubt that his enemy had

traveled with him from Calcutta un under
der under the disguise of "De Hyeres." And
he believed the man had planned this

thing far ahead; else would he have
surely taken some overt step to pre

vent O'Rourke from delivering the

ruby to Sypher. He divined acutely

that, despairing of any further at

tempt to win "the jewel from him, Des
Trebes had turned his wits to the task
of stealing it from Sypher; somebody

naturally much less to be feared than
the adventurer.

But on the other hand, if the girl

had not been Des Trebes' assistant
what had become of her? And what

if her guest the lady one of whose

Initials was B?

It was not inconsistent with Des
Trebes' whole-hearted villainy that he

should employ a gang of thugs suffi sufficiently

away with bodily and in a body Miss
Pynsent, her guest and the servants.

"If it be in truth my wife!

Without presage a thin but impera

silence of the house of death. O'Rourke

jumped as if shot. Somewhere in one

of the other rooms a telephone bell

was ringing. It ceased, leaving a
strident stillness; but before he could
