that we were not compelled to alight

stride and the pace must be kept.
There is activity throughout the coun county

the brakes. This is the belief and the
determination of the membership com committee
mittee committee of the Marion County Board
of Trade, just appointed by President
Eush II. Todd, and which met last
night to decide on a plan for financing
the organization for 1921. Believing
that men and not natural resources
'make communities, and that, there
fore, men plus the great natural ad advantages
vantages advantages of Ocala' and Marion county
can do even greater things, the mem membership
bership membership committee is determined that
they shall go over the top in, a drive
for not less than $10,000.
The drive will start next Tuesday
morning at 9 o'clock. The $10,000 will
be' raised to cover all of the activities
of the Board of Trade for the year, so
that there will be no further drives
made by the organization during the
year. A budget will be prepared and
stuck to. As soon as the committee
the earlier battles of the revolutionary
war, we encountered a man who, after
expressing his amazement at our
statement that we had just descended
from a climb to its top, astonished us,
in turn,, when he vouchsafed the in
formation that although he was born
and had always lived in a house within
a few steps of the historic structure
he had never entered it. Again, in
Paris, we met an individual who had
resided for years in the shadow of the
Hotel des Invalides, yet had never vis
ited the tomb of Napoleon, which ad adjoins

mility humility that we have yet to set foot on
the island in New York harbor from
which the gigantic Statue of Liberty
lears its head, although .for a matter
of ten years we passed it twice daily
on a ferryboat. (
In this class we are inclined to
place a resident of Ocala who has lived
here a year or more, but has not been
to Silver Springs until the desire to
show us around caused him to motor
to the resort and view its sub-aqueous
wonders. Do we need to say that he,
like- ourself, was .enchanted? Well
say we don't.
As we gazed through the glass
panel in the boat's bottom the melli mellifluous
fluous mellifluous voiced guide informed us that
the flowi of water in the spring
amounted to "th'ee hun'ed an' sixty sixty-tight
tight sixty-tight thousan' nine hun'ed and thirteen
gallons a minute." This seemed stu
pendous, and we were disposed to
question the accuracy of the state
ment, but were deterred by the appre apprehension
hension apprehension that he might challenge us to
measure it ourself. if we doubted his
word. Besides, the) only vessel in
sight that could have been used for
the purpose was a large tin can that
lay in the water thirty feet below, and
this, manifestly, comld be drawn to the
surface only with much difficulty.
One reason for writing the forego foregoing
ing foregoing paragraph is to draw attention to
the carelessness, if not downright van

beauty of this wonderful piece of na nature's

to be provided and imposed.
Asking the name of a majestic tree
that attracted our attention, we were
informed that it was "just an ordinary
cabbage palmetto." Somewhat shock
ed that the' designation of the lowly
garden vegetable should be coupled
with that of so stately a plant, we
were informed that a really and truly
edible cabbage grew in the huge
sphere of foliage that surmounted the
tall and smooth trunk. We expressed
the belief that this explanation be belonged

as that of the pot of gold at the rain rainbow's

The Marion County Board of Trade
is the only commercial organization in
this county. It is the only agency in
the county devoting all of its time to
the development of Ocala and Marion
county. The outside world looks to
the commercial organization as the
medium for getting in contact with
the community. The business of the
trade body is the business of no other
organization, nor of any individual.

member of the membership committee,

Last Sunday on the way to Lake
Weir ,we noticed a group of men jjar jjar-rounding
rounding jjar-rounding a trefc at the edge of the
road. Denuded of its. leaves; it stood
gray and bare. Its trunk had been
newly blazed. The, gaze of some of
the men was directed at a broken limb
that protruded horizontally ten feet
above" the ground. One man was dig-
ging wjth a jacknife into the bark. A
moment later he extracted a flattened
chunk of lead. "Souvenir f we in-
ouired. "Yep," he answered.
We had been told that at this spot
just a few hours previously a beast in
the form of a man had expiated, un under
der under the decree of an unwritten law,
an unnamable crime( against an aged
and helpless woman.
To us the brief dialogue quoted
above closed the incident, yet when
we returned to our abiding place we

Down here a serious crime by a negro

every man with a white skin. We

to testify against an attacking negro.

least expensive means of dealing with
a black scoundrel is to hang him at

one of the bad ones commits a serious
crime, they know exactly wnere to

with them take a rope along. Without

far less trouble with the negroes than

"Traveling men all over the country
