In a statement last night, Secre Secretary

"I am in hearty agreement with

Suggestion to the Board of Trade
There is so much of pure, fresh
water all around here, and besides,
being beautiful to rest the eyes up upon,
on, upon, it is good to drink. These great
and marvelous blue bubbliing
springs are caused by the bursting
out here of the rainfall water over
a very large inland area of Florida.
The underlying rocks are so large
and deep that the artesian well does
not crop out. hereabouts everywhere,
but in places, one of which is the
Silver Springs. The slanting sub submerged
merged submerged rocks crop out artesian flow
all along the wide St. Johns river,
and at Palatka the gravitation
throws oat streams from three to five
feet high. The Oklawha river peo-
pie drink the pure Silver Springs
water when they can secure it, and
the w hole valley not adjacent the
springs, drink from deep wells.
The Marion County Board of
Trade is accused of doing a whole
mess of things, some of which the
trade body has, indeed, done, of
ccurse one, of drinking water been
accused of prinking water: cause of
quenching thirst. Now the river
people, having so much pure water
to drink, are accused of taking
aboard a "palouser" when over the
bar in Ocala. But the river people
have a just cause for the rights to
drink a "palouser" while in Ocala.
The water is fierce and unwholesome
up there. While the basin accuses
the Marion County Board of Trade
of drinking water and other things
too many to scribe below, why not
Ocala ladle up to that body pure
water that will make the city and
county officers, and others as well,
healthy and wise.
A three hundred and fifty foot
well in Ocala pumps surface water,
according to the lay of the stratas
of underlying rock there. The city
of Ocala owns three wells a hun hundred
dred hundred and fifty foot well, an eight
hundred foot well and a well of
twelve hundred feet. Why not pump
from the twelve hundred foot well,
from which depth is obtained sul sulphur
phur sulphur water, and better water for the
board of trade to drink, sir. The
basin, not the news station, mind
you, advises the body to drink a
"palouser" now and then for its
stomach sake; that Is, until the sur surface
face surface water is done away with.

The ball game Monday afternoon
between the Bloomer Girls and a
hastily organized local nine resulted
in a victory for the girls by a score
of 7 to 5.

the visiting team was made up of
ordinary players, depending on their
sex to arouse interest. They turned

combination was quite a formidable
The Ocala team which won so
many vtories last summer would
have probably shut the Bloomers out
without giving them a chance to
score. But the nine that went out
yesterday, though it had some vet
erans on,. it, had been picked up in a
hurn', and had not had even one
practice game. However, the boys
tied the score with the visitors in the
fifth innfng. After that they didn't
seem to be trying to play. They
were infected with the spirit of good
humor toward the girls evinced by
the audience, which either rooted
openly for the visiting team or
grinned at its good plays and chaffed
the home boys. Galloway's pitching
and Davis' catching was superior to
anything the visitors put up, but the
home boj-s didn't shine in stick
However, they kept the score tied
till the ninth, when the good team

runs, and the game ended.

Mosquito coast as British territory.
Mosquito was classed as a depend
ency of British Honduras, and it
was a long time before the claim
was relinquished. t
With the British rights in Mos-
auitia allowed the British would
practically have control of the Nic
arasuan canal route. In 1850 the
British claim was admitted by the
United States, but this nation was
determined that it should not be
turned to advantage in the matter
of constructing an interoceanic
canal. The Nicaraguan route was at
that time considered the most feasi feasible,
ble, feasible, and it was to prevent the build
ing of the canal by Great Britain
that the United States entered into
the famous Clayton-Bulwar agree
This treaty was, in every way, fav

to Nicaraguan territory. The United
States had no such claim. The
treaty bound each of the nations nev

Cardui goes to all the weak spots and
helps to make them strong. It acts with
nature not against her. It is for the
tired, nervous, irritable women, who feel
as if everything were wrong, and need
something to quiet their nerves and
strengthen the worn-out system.

The Help of Mademoiselle.
The sound of a voice speaking, ap apparently
parently apparently far off, was the first thing of
which I was dimly conscious. The
language was French, and, for what
seemed a long time, no word sounded
familiar. My mind was blank of any
distinct impression, although there ap appeared
peared appeared to float before me, in recollec recollection
tion recollection of some former existence, the
face of mademoiselle. Her wonderful
eyes were gravely smiling through a
strange mist that appeared to hide all
else in its circling folds. I could not
get away from their silent pleading,
their invitation. Then 6omehow that
speaking voice became hers, and I
picked out a word here and there, de detached,
tached, detached, meaningless, and yet recogniz
able. I struggled to arouse myself to
her actual presence.
The struggle must have been phy physical
sical physical as well as mental, for I became
conscious of pain, a sharp pang shoot shooting
ing shooting through my body, as if a knife had
been twisted in a deep wound. The
agony brought me wide awake, my
eyes open, staring about, yet scarcely
realizing where dream and reality met.
At first I could not distinguish objects,
or separate sounds; everything was
blurred, formless. There was a red
vapor before my eyes, a strange ring ringing

indeed mademoiselle who spoke, some somewhere
where somewhere off there to my right, and once
I heard another voice a falsetto, yet
plainly that of a man, interrupting
her. Between my poor understanding
of French, and the bewilderment of
my brain, I could make nothing out of
what was said; the very few words I
caught seemed meaningless, with no
connection between them. I strug struggled

made utter failure of the -t attempt, a

soft breath on my cheek. My eyes in instantly

I knew you were not dead; I found you
first and kept them away, but there is
no time now for me to explain. Are
you badly hurt?"
"I cannot tell, mademoiselle these
heavy bodies will not let me move."
She glanced about swiftly, as if in
fear of being seen; then released my
limbs, dragging the two dead Indians
aside. I felt cramped, lifeless below
the waist, yet as the blood began to
circulate I knew there was no serious
injury. She stared into my face as I
worked the numbed muscles, and her
eyes told me that she was frightened.
"We are alone here?"
"Yes, for the moment," breathlessly.
"It is your only chance; I have prayed
and schemed to get to you. We mustn't

I set my teeth, struggling to turn
over and attain my knees, in spite of
every effort I sank on my face with a
smothered groan of pain. She lifted
my head upon her arm.
"Oh, you must, monsieur, you must!
I cannot lift you, you are too big, but

like this! Please, please try again

would attempt to please her. I ex experienced

despair, and left me an instant. I
