The county commissioners having

decide whether the county should take

charge of the fair or not, it seems

reasonable to believe that there will

and perhaps not for a number of

board of commissioners may call an
election; neither does its being called

off make it absolutely necessary that
the fair be discontinued, for there is
nothing to prevent any bunch of live

men from getting together and mak making

we do not believe the owners of the
fai rproperty will ever make such an

offer to the county again, and we do

not think it likely there will be any

fair this coming November.

We are rather sorry the election

will not be held, for we believe the

proposition would have been so heav

come up again in a generation, if ever.

We are opposed to counties and states

owning and operating fairs and other

money-making enterprises. We fully

doctrine, that the business of a gov

business to try to do anything else

E. W. Jordan at Gaiter, and his re remains
mains remains are now at the undertaking
parlors of Mclver & MacKay awaiting
the arrival of the family from Glen Glen-ville,
ville, Glen-ville, Ga., where burial will take place.
Mr. Jordan came here a few months
ago, accompanied by his daughter,
M iss Frankie, to recuperate from an
illness, but never fully recovered. He
was a native of Marion county, but
left over twenty years ago to make
his home in Georgia. While in Ocala
he was engaged as an undertaker with
Mclver & MacKay, and will be re remembered
membered remembered by the older citizens.
When Mr. Jordan left 'Ocala, he
went back to the old home of his
family in Liberty county, Ga., where
his people settled many years ago,
coming over from South Carolina. He
settled down on a farm near Ludo Ludo-wici,
wici, Ludo-wici, making a successful farmer and
a model citizen. He became a victim of
the flu when that disease swept thru
the country last fall and winter, and
tho he was able to be up and around
again, never recovered his strength.
Hoping that the soft air of his boy boyhood
hood boyhood home would restore hrs health,
he came accompanied by his daughter,
Miss Frankie, to the home of his
brother, Mr. E. W. Jordan, near
Gaiter, where he received the most
careful and loving attention, but his
system had been weakened too much,
and he passed away.
His remains were taken in charge
by Mclver &MacXay and brought to
this city, accompanied by his daugh daughter
ter daughter and his brother, Mr.'E. W. W.
Jordan, who intended to take them to
his home in Georgia and lay them" to
rest in the family, burying ground
near there. On arriving in Ocala,
however, they met a telegram an announcing
nouncing announcing that the family of the de deceased
ceased deceased would leave for Dunnellon, and
as they were by that time out of tele telegraphic
graphic telegraphic communication, there was
nothing to do but await their arrival,
which will be this afternoon, when it
will be decided whether to have the
funeral here and lay the remains to
rest at Cedar Grove or take them
back to Georgia.
Beside his sorrowing relatives, Mr.

Jordan leaves many friends to mourn
him both in Florida and Georgia, and
the Star joins in their regret, as his
family have ever been staunch friends
of the paper.
