said aforesaid road Is an unjust criticism of
the commissioners of "Marion county
as well as myself, and from his
statement he is in the predicament

and deep blue sea. His assertion
that the waste is between $50 and
$75 per day shows how ridiculous
his article isa3 the total cost of
four convict gangs, two free labor
gangs and necessary materials and
repairs has been less than $75 per

little more. The lime road from
Ocala to Santos was cub to pieces
during dry weather by log and wood
wagons, and .the owners use the road
every day without a groan. The road
through Belleview is being built to
profile and grades submitted to the
city council of that city and accepted
by them. The fills referred to were
made to get sufficient elevation to

HIGH PRAISE FOR THE
Editor Star: Please allow me
space in your paper to thank the
local agents of the Metropolitan Life
Insurance Company, for check that I
received June 22nd to cover the
claim of insurance for my son,
Robert R. Whitfield.
The reason that I wish to thank
the Metropolitan is that it has seen
fit to pay this claim, when the appli application
cation application was made on Saturday and
my son was accidentally killed on
the following Tuesday. Had it not
been with reliable agents and "a
company like the Metropolitan Life
Insurance Company, I am not sure
that I would have obtained anything,
but with them I got face value of the
policy applied for.
Again thanking them for the
check, I will say to the public that
holders of Metropolitan policies will
get a square deal.
Wishing them the very .best of
success, I am, very truly-,
Mrs. Lou Whitfield,
Mother of Robert R. Whitfield.

home. As soon as the company had
made investigations necessary in the

Metropolitan is very much gratified
with the manner in which ths case
