Team of Experienced Aviators in the.

Ocala peopfe have this week their
test opportunity to view their city
and vicinity from above. An excel excellent

liable reliable airplane and a landing field con convenient
venient convenient to the town, make up the most
fortuitous combination in that line
that has yet been here. A good many
planes have landed here, but as they
were 'government machines all our
people know about them was to see
them in the air, or possibly land or
take off, which last, owing to the in
accessibility of the landing fields was j
something restricted to a few.
Fine Landing Field
It was when the Wrigley circus was
here a few weeks aco that our neonle
had their first chance near .home to j
fly, and even then they were. at the
disadvantage of having to go out to
the Anthony Farms, nine miles, to
board the planes. One of the Wrigley
flyers, C. N. Bbck, obliged to come
down near the city, accidentally found
a good place to land just west of
town, and from this for the last three
days Pilot Keightley has been taking
up passengers and giving them en enjoyable

Ocala from Above
The reporter took a ride with
Maj. Keightley over the city Monday
afternoon. Being the newspaper
man's second trip, it was devoid of
thrills, but it was a very comfortable
and interesting voyage. The airplane
started from the western end of the
field,, taxied about three or four hun hundred
dred hundred yards and then taking the air
at a gentle slope rose until it was
several hundred feet up. The course
was in a circle around the city and then

ter. center. The plane was kept at an alti altitude
tude altitude that gave the observer the best
possible view of, the town. Every
building was plainly recognizable,
and people were almost so. The plane
rode on an almost even keel, it didn't
seem possible for it to fall, and when
the landing was made it came down
with a long, gradual slide, hardly
jumping when it struck the ground.
As the pilot of an airship we should
pronounce Major Keightley an artist.
As we remarked regarding a pre previous
vious previous trip, Ocala is very pretty from
the air, and this second experience
confirmed the ; impression. Major
Keightley's plane did not go half as
high as the Wrigley machine in which
we rode over the city some weeks
ago, and contrary to the proverb we
found proximity adding enchantment
to the view. The town was not so
much flattened out, the streets were
wider and houses bigger, but the good
looks of everything was added to in
stead of lessened. A little streak of
color at one corner of the courthouse
told where the American flag was
floating proudly from its staff. Tay Taylor's

Soaring from the Site of Marti City
Not only the aviators but many of
our own people will be surprised to
know that the landing field just west
of the fair grounds, twenty-eight
years ago was part of one of the most
prosperous and busy towns in Flor
Uda Marti City, built by Cuban cigar
makers, and doing at that time more
business in the weed than Tampa. In
1892-we found Marti City cigars in
towns all the way from Knoxville to
El Paso. Where Pilot Keightley

EXPLAINING THE TEST OATH
- Editor Times-Union: At the regu regular

executive committee on January 29,
1120, 'the following resolution was
'"Be it further resolved by the state
democratic executive committee of
Florida, that in the primary election
to be held on the first Tuesday after
the first Monday in June, 1920, those

as proper members of the democratic
party of Florida, and entitled to vote
in the aforesaid primary election as
members of said democratic party,
who, in addition to the qualifications
provided by law, possess the following
"(1). That they are white.
"(2). That they are members of

"(3). That they will vote 'for all
the nominees of said prmary election
in the geenral election to be held on

"Be it further resolved -that here hereafter
after hereafter upon any qualified elector pre presenting

shall be required to take an oath, and
said supervisor of registration shall
be required to administer to him an
oath, that such registrant will vote
for all the nominees of the democratic
party, national, state:, and county; in
the geenral election next following
said primary election."-
This resolution was under the au
thority o fSection 16, of Chapter 6469.
Laws of Florida, 1913, reading as fol
"Section 16. The state executive
committee of each political party
may by resolution declare the terms1
and conditions on which legal elec

therefore entitled to vote in the pri primary

ply with the terms of -any such reso resolution

copies thereof duly certified by the
chairman and secretary of any such

books as herein required."
In view of the fact that the ques
tion presented is before the courts, it
would be important to discuss the
law, other than point out that there
is no basis for the contention that the
terms of the resolution apply only to
those electors residing in cities of
more than 20,000 population.
From a purely political standpoint,
the issue is plain. On the one hand,

There are twro newspaper editors in
Florida whose papers are y placed on
my desk, and every word that they
write is read.
These editors are Bob Davis of the
Gainesville Sun and Ham Benjamin of
the Ocala Evening Star.
Both are able men.
They write from different angles.
Bob writes the gospel of love, while
Benjamin puts over the "git right."
Benjamin's birthday comes about in
November and he will be remembered

Davis, who was going' to Pablo Beach
for a short vacation.
He was accompanied by his little

I was particularly impressed by the
consideration extended by this young
boy to his father.
The child's name is Bob, and it is
needless to say that he is the apple of
his papa's eye.
We wish this grand character, the
scion of the old South, of a time time-honored
honored time-honored race that is fast becoming
extinct, a -happy birthday.

Florida, especially of Gainesville and

It Is an old belief that a marriage
should take place when the moon Is
waxing and not waning, if It is to be a
lucky match, and In many north coun country
try country districts a strict Inquiry is made as
to the state of the moon before the
wedding day Is fixed. In the north,
too, no wise bride will ask an odd
number of guests to her, wedding
feast, for an old superstition has it
that If this Is done one of the guests
will die before the year 1? out.
In the Highlands it Is taken as ft
terribly unlucky sign If a dog should
run between the bridal pair on their
wedding day; while in Derbyshire
prospective brides still tell the bees of
their wedding, and decorate the hives
for the occasion. In parts of England
and Scotland there exists an ancient
custom for which reason Is hard to
find, by which part of the wedding
cake Is broken over the head of the
bride, and the guests scramble for
