BONDS OR NO BONDS
Useless to waste time in setting out
the desirability of hard roads. Eve- j
rybody admits it. But I respectfully
refuse to accept the statement that ;
any system of roads built with the 5
proposed bond issue of -one and a half 1
million dollars will double the value ?
of land in Marion county. I refuse to j
believe that it wall even add 25 per
cent, to the value of our lands. j
In the first place, the whole bond;
issue, one and a half million dollars, ;
vrith all the outside money that bond
advocates tempt us with, will not
make the roads we are promised. I
Doubtless we will get the Dixie High- J
way, upon which it is proposed to
spend one-third of the total bond is- j
sue, but the remaining million, to j
cover the roads contemplated, and j
hich the people living along those!
roads expect, cannot make roads of u j
sufficient width end of a lasting char-
acter under present conditions. We
will then owe one and a half million j
dollars and have a good Dixie High- f
way road, the rest of the roads of in- f
sufficient width and poor character.
In a word, just such a makeshift, ex- i
pensive and poor set of roads as we
are now familiar with.
Is there any man who can ever run
ft two-horse farm today and hire it
dene, as conditions now are ? We are
face to face with actual conditions of
high cost of everything and no labor.
Is it c.ny argument at all to ask us
when these conditions will change?
Would you put to sea in a leaking
boat eimply because you could not get
a better one, when you could stay on
dry land in safety? Are you going to
vote a bond issue in the face of what
your common sense tells you, merely
because some bond advocate asks you
when conditions will get better? Re Remember,
member, Remember, you can put off thiSjbond is issue
sue issue for a year, for two years, for
whatever time you please, and vote a
bond issue when you get ready, but if
you vote it now and find your million
and a half of dollars wasted you can can-iot
iot can-iot undo the matter. You will have
to stand it. Grin and pay taxes. And
liow much are those taxes going to
Under the proposed bond issue you
-will pay interest on 375 bonds for
.ten years amounting to $187,500; 375
:bonds for 15 years amounting to
$281,250, and on 750 bonds for twenty
years amounting to $750,000, a total
of one million two hundred and eight eighteen
een eighteen thousand seven hundred and fifty
dollars, and in addition pay the bonds
themselves, one million five hundred
thousand dollars, making a total of
two million seven hundred and eight eighths
hs eighths nthousand seven hundred and fifty
dollars. Do not let anybody tell you
that your taxes will not be very much
increased. Your 1919 county tax, all
. 'tbld, outside of the sub-schools, is
twenty-one, and a half mills, yielding
$167,420. You will have to be taxed,
in addition maid you, to pay off your
Ixmds and interest, and this will come
to on an average about $135,937 a
'year. In addition, remember, tp what
you are now paying.
Your taxes will not be doubled, but
it looks to' me as though they would
be increased over 80 per, cent. They
tell us that we are going to loan part
of otxr 'bond money to the banks, but
I. am figuring on what we will have to
be taxed, and what we know we will
vhrve to pay, whether we loan our
money or not.
Ask yourself right, here a question;
sit down quietly and put some hard J
thinking; into it. Are we, when we
have mortgaged' our county up to the
eyes, because that is what we are
facing, are tore going to get under the
conditions that stare us in the face,
anything like the- system of roads
that bond men would have us believe?
I absolutely refuse to believe that we
will, except the Dixie Highway. We
have a plain object lesson right in our
own county. The Dunnellon district
put out a bond issue of $75,000 and
confidently named a system of roads
they would build. They got their
bond money, spent their bond money,
and with their money gone, utterly
failed to build their roads as propos proposed.
ed. proposed. Prices had gone up. Conditions
had changed and conditions are worse
now and getting worse. I would like
to suggest a compromise. Vote down
this bond issue. Let the people liv living
ing living along the Dixie Highway, say for
two miles or three miles or whatever
width is best, on either side of the
Dixie Highway, from the Alachua
county line above Mcintosh to the
Lake county line below Weirsdale,
and going through' Dcala, constitute
that territory into a sub-road district
and vote bonds in that district and
build the best Dixie Highway in 'Flor 'Florida,
ida, 'Florida, through- Marion county, and turn
it over to the state for maintenance
for all time, because the state will
take it when done. Then later, the
rest of the county can take like action
if deemed best. You have got to
figure on a certain" amount of waste,
01 a certain amount of graft, in
handling a million and a half dollars.
Conditions are worse than they have
ever been. They are getting worse.
Everybody admits it. What earthly
guarantee have you that the roads
planned can be built for a million and
a half dott ars? The Dixie .Highway
will be built, but what will you do,
you who are living out on one of the
proposed other roads, when you find
a few years from now that your half halfway
way halfway made road has gone to pieces and
you are still living off the main Dixie
Highway. A circular has been sent
to the people of this county advocat advocating
ing advocating bonds and giving data, as to the
reads upon which money is to be
spent. I respectfully take the posi position
tion position that the people of any county be before
fore before assuming so great a burden of

She had been duly warned upon her

Jean spoke: "I think I will run up to
the city tomorrow, Tom, and see
mother for. a few 'weeks. It doesn't
ceem as though I could stand this
place any longer." "All right, Jeanie;
perhaps the change will do you good,"
Tom said good-naturedly. But as the
light from the crackling logs fell upon
his face Jean could not help but see
the pained expression. Nevertheless
che had made up her mind to go and
nothing could stop her. She just
longed for the noise and excitement of
the city; and the next morning, al although

she watched she pictured Tom, sitting

Notwithstanding Delia's success lo

Throughout her youth, Delia had
been hidden In a white house among
the hills, and perhaps because her
grandmother's home was so difficult
of access, possible lovers had not
found their way there; so Delia lived
and bloomed like 'full many a flow flower,"

cooking, baking, coaxing flowers to
grow in the old home garden.
With grandmother's passing, all had
been changed; the dilapidated place
sold to defray expenses, and Delia her
self, hurried dazedly off to the city
to earn her livelihood. Unexpectedly
