rr-agnificent parade I have even seen,
or indeed ever hope to see. I wish
you could have seen the boulevards

Over six million people thronged the
Champs Elysees, Avenue des Italiens
and the Grandes Boulevards to see the
historical pageant; and I don't think, I
have ever seen more human souls con congregated

than I saw at the Place de la Concorde

I shall never forget. I am sending

Every kind of soldier and sailor of the
allied armies was represented in the
victorious march. The most pictur picturesque
esque picturesque of all were the Arabs (Alge (Algerians)

white, and corded turbans. They are
wonderful horsemen, and rode their
steeds just like the warriors they
really are. They were the best mount mounted

A battalion of picked American
troops led the procession. They made
a splendid showing, much better than
that made by any of the other foot
soldiers. That, of course, was only
natural, and to be expected. Even
the French applauded loudest when
the doughboys marched past. This is
the best proof of the showing they
made and the regard in which they
are held in this foreign land.. It took
three hours to watch the entire "de "defile"

ly finally .ended I had seen enough for one
day, I am sure. It was a curious
sight to see people using periscopes
to see over the heads of their taller
comrades. Those instruments seemed
to be quite useful and worked fine.
Even on the tops of the large hotels
and apartment houses, great tempo temporary

accommodate the crowds, eager to
spend hundreds of francs for a seat
and a good view. Some seats in win

and dispassionately discussed the la labor

the troubles of the last few days,
where one branch of organized labor
is trying to tie up the entire country,
and the paid representatives of sev

for it. having brought to a climax
their discontent with a system where

gust disgust with the government which
makes one concession after another
to a favored class, which is rapidly
becoming as tyrannical in methods as
the Prussian autocracy, and they all
expressed a wish that the government
would show some spunk, and fight, the
mobocracy instead of 'giving away to
its successive demands. Ocala is much
like other American towns, so the
chances are that very much the same
kind of sentiment was being expressed
all over the United States.
Judging by what we have been

ward it by the men in office. It's our
opinion that the people of America
are ready for a showdown, and a fight
if necessary, and if union labor wants
an universal strike, let it strike, so
the rest of the country can strike
back, and the decision go to the side
that can strike the hardest.
These unions are mostly made up
of men who stayed out of the war and
worked for big wages, while the boys
from the families of unorganized la labor

those who did the working, the fight fighting

right, has any man, no matter how
hard he worked, if he could work in
comfort and safety, to put himself on
a level with those who toiled in cold
and hunger and constant danger of
death. And what man of them did
more than his duty anyhow.
Our representatives in Congress
may take note' of the fact that the
people of this county at least are tired
of this tyranny and want it ended.
Let the -unions strike; the whole lot,
all over the country, let them stop all
the trains, and cut off all the pay payrolls,
rolls, payrolls, and let us see who will become
sick of it first. They bawl about the
high prices, when they themselves are
doing more than the packers to force
up prices. A devil of a lot do they
care how long a man outside their
trades shall work, or for how much,
so long as they can have minimum

has witnessed in thirty years. We can
look on such things without agitation
when we have to, but we prefer not
to, so always gave someone else the
assignment when it was possible. The
last execution we saw before this was
in DeLand in 1889. It took place in
an enclosure, and no one saw it except
the officials, two physicians, two
newspaper men and about a dozen
citizens. And that was enough.
Friday's execution in this city was
