SURVEY OF THE TOWN PROVES THAT FLORIDA HAS 110
The business manager of the Star
started out yesterday morning, neg neglecting

itors, Creditors, and marl the rniind nf mnt of
the industries of the. city that can
be" classed among the producing or
He commenced at the extreme
northeast section of the city, where
the Ocala Cooperage Company plant
is located, and wound up with the
big sewer contract work of Messrs.
IJryan & Company.
If anyone thinks for a moment
that there is "nothing stirring" in
Ocala ho has several more thinks
coming to him, as we believe he will
admit, when he peruses this feeble
and rambling attempt to give them
all a little boost and show to the
world what we are doing now on the
tail end of a long and hot summer.
In this hurriedly prepared article, we
will doubtless overlook several enter
prises of merit- but such has not
been intentional and also, some will
not come, under this head who may
think that their business is deserve
ing of mention.
OCALA COOPERAGE COMPANY
x ne Mcaia 4 cooperage company,
though not operating on full time,
has been -running right along all of
these years and. making lots of' fine
turpentine barrels and employing a
good many men.
THOMAS ROCK CRUSHER
Next came Mr. A. T. Thomas' new
crushing plant, where a good squad
of men, are working all day and
sometimes in tne me-nt. and mart a
car of crushed flint rock every few
hours. This rock, as well as that
crushed at his up-town plant located,
with his offices, near, the Ocala Iron
Works, is shipped to all points in the
state and for which there is a keen
demand. Mr. Thomas operates his
plant with a 30-horsepower electric
motor, using the city's current, and
it is very interesting to see the pow
erful ?jaws of the 'crusher "cronch"
up a big flint boulder int pieces the
size of hazelnuts, and the elevator
take away the finished product to the
screens, where it is sifted into the
different sizes required, the : very
finest of screenings being left : for
road building or surfacing purposes,
for which it is well adapted.
' WELCH THE WOOD WORKER
Next there is the big planing mill,
novelty wood4' working factory and
lumber and building material plant
operated by Mr. David S.Welch, on
the leased grounds of the Ocala Lum Lumber
ber Lumber & Supply Company. Mr. Welch
is supplying the lumber and material
for a number of job's about the city,
and is making a" great deal of wood
work, such as screens, doors and win windows,
dows, windows, tair work, moulding, etc. Mr
. Welch is keeping a number wf men
employed, is using a lot of the city's
current and is doing his full share
towards stimulating trade and indus industry
try industry in the city.
Among the jobs we saw, later on in
the day, where the material is being
supplied by Mr. Welch, is the big
new nine-room residence on West
Fort King avenue, near the crossing
of the S. A. L. railway that Dilsie
. Graham a colored woman, is building
along modern lines; a big church for
the St. PaQl A. M. E. congregation
that the pastor, Rev. Fields, is build
ing in Tucker Hill; Mr. P. D. O'Dell's
pretty home in the northern part of
town, which Mr. O'Dell is superin superintending
tending superintending himself, in his capacity of
contractor and builder, and the new
plant of the Texas Oil Company.
STANDARD OIL CO.
Next to Mr. Welch's business is the
plant of the Standard Oil Co., which.
keeps Manager Tom Jones of "Stan "Standard
dard "Standard Oil fame," as busy as a bee.
TEXAS OIL COMPANY
Jumping away over, northwest of
this place, the Texas Oil Company,
one of the many new and good things
to come to Ocala, has well under way
its buildings. The Texas Oil Com Company
pany Company is building two warehouses and
a stable for its teams, and as soon
as these are ready the three huge
tanks for storing gasoline' and kero
sene will be shipped here and placed
on their foundations. The. company
will carry probably the largest stock
of gasoline and oil, as well as barrel
goods, oils, ..paints, roofing, etc, of
any of the oil companies operating in
this part of the state. It will supply
several counties from the Ocala sta station,
tion, station, and we are told it is putting in
as rapidly as possible sixteen of these
stations in the state. Ocala is glad
to see the big competitor of the
Standard Oil and Gulf companies
coming into Ocala and that it' is com
ing 'on a larger scale than either of
its competitors, shows that it; means
business and, with Its competitors, at attaches
taches attaches a great deal of importance to
this town of Ocala.
GULF REFINING COMPANY
r- '('.": "'-''!'' v--- .w-;-
Not a great ways from its plant is
the Gulf Refining Company's big
warehouse and storage tanks, the
business that "made the octopus sit
up and take notice" in this hamlet
several years ago, when it establish established

is the agent for the company here,
and his teams and autos may be seen
often on the joads of the county, run running
ning running Mr. Tom Jones a merry race.
OCALA GAS COMPANY
Taking a long back "step to the
crossing of the two railroads, and the
prospective location of the new union
passenger depot that will have to be
commenced next May, under the
order of the railroad commission, is
the up-to-date, plant of the Ocala Gas
Company. Tho not housed in a pre pretentious
tentious pretentious building, the gas plant is
very efficient; and is doing its work
and doing it well, the new machinery
being surrounded .with an absolutely
fireproof shell; in fact, a repetition of
the disaster that put Charlie Hunter
out of the running for a few days
once, can never happen again. This
reminds us thatwe were' surprised
the other day, whenMr. Hunter told
us that he has in the city four hun
dred gas meters and winter coming
on, -with prospects for ; many more.
Why, we hardly thought there were
that many users of gas all put to together
gether together in Ocala.
BIG INDUSTRIES OF
Crossing the Seaboard, on the way
"up town" is the huge new ware
house, filling the entire corner made
by the crossing of the A. C. L. Rail
way, that has just been 1 completed
by the Ocala Manufacturing Co., and
is now being filled slowly with crates
and baskets for the coming demand.
This warehouse is pointed out with
pride by the Taylor brothers. It is
50 x 80 and is more than 20 feet high,
inside at the eaves, and more than 30
feet in the center. It is well made and
well braced and well lighted. Mr.
Taylor put a floor in this building that
will stand and a foundation that will
support the weight of the 150,000
orange boxes that it will hold, if that
many are ever in there at once. The
old packing house of the company
which was torn down on this site
sheared the brick foundations .in half
with the weight of the contents, but
the foundation system under the new
one, no amount of weight will affect.
Right back of and east of the build
ing is another .warehouse, almost the
same size, two stories, the second
MORE ACTIVE AND SOLIDLY
floor being served by an elevator, andi
it is almost filled with crates and bas-j
kets, either finished or knocked down.i
In the huge crate and basket, mill,
close by, the big crew of the factory;
was busily engaged in turning out
crates and baskets while further down
the line, away past the big ice factory
and cold storage plant, and past a i
long string of freight cars loaded with
pine saw-log, the veneer mill and
saw mill was cutting the logs into
lumber for crates and baskets. While
in the true sense of the word the
company does not operate a saw mill
it cuts a great deal of lumber for
its own and other uses. Then there
are long sheds of veneer material dry drying
ing drying or seasoning. The cold storage
rooms are ready for the curing and
storing of the great "crop of Marion
County pork, soon to begin coming
in, and which Mr. .Taylor says will
be heavier than most of us think.
LOTS OF WHEELS FOR KINGHT
; AND LANG ";
"Continuing our way on iip town we
passed the huge "L" shaped building
formerly used by the Ocala Iron
Works, which is partially filled with
wagons and vehicles belonging to
Knight & Lang, which firm is using
itHas a warehouse. That part of the
building not filled with vehicles"' is
taken up with urates of the Ocala
Manufacturing Company, which nev never
er never seems to have made and stored
quite enough crates to satisfy it.
The Ocala Manufacturing Company
is by far the largest manufacturing
business and employer of Jabor in the
city, and we believe the largest in
the county that is being operated at
present. Few of us, even here in the
city realize its magnitude. The plant
covers 10 acres of ground, and there
is little spare or waste space, and
its tfeed bill for mules alone is a
thousand dollars a month, nearly all
of which is bought here, when, as now
there is feed for sale.
"OCALA IRON WORKS
Across the street from the building
used jointly as a warehouse by the
the Ocala Manufacturing Co., and
Knight & Lang is the big and modern
plant of the Ocala Iron Works. This
business is quite busy and has better
prospects ahead for business. This
plant is now housed," with its fine
modern machinery, in. one of the best
arranged, most convenient buildings
in the state, and it is absolutely fire
proof one could not- set fire to any
part of it if he tried.
WHOLESALE GROCERY HOUSES
Back on the other side of the track
is the big wholesale grocery of Jake
Brown, one of the "institutions" of
the city, while on the other side and
a little further back is that of the
Ocala Grocery Company, another
lively and successful business.
OCALA'S PACKING HOUSE
Next to Jake Brown is the big, new
packing house of the Ocala Citrus
Association, which the Taylor Broth
ers have almost completed under con
tract for the association. The build
ing is "well put up, covered entirely
with galvanized iron, and is 80 by
100 feet,-and very lofty inside. The
building is admirably located, right
alongside of the A. C. L. track, and
the S. A. L. andf Oklawaha Valley

engaged in putting together the
4000 picking boxes, which will be
sent out to the different groves of
the patrons of the house. Thes
boxes are of cypress. The material
was cut and shipped to Ocala and the
men are now making it into boxes.
IMMENSE ORANGE INDUSTRY
This big building is well lighted and
ventilated. and when the season opens
and the thousands of boxes of fruit
come in and the army of people are
handling and getting it ready for
market, it will present a more ani animated
mated animated appearance than it does now.
It is expected that 40,000 boxes of
fruit will pass through the house

tracted for. The Taylor Brothers
will supply all of the crates. The
wrappers will all be printed and
ready by the opening of the season.
The brands adopted by the associa

OCALA'S. LATEST INDUSTRY,
THE LANG SOAP FACTORY
Next, the Star man, with Col. R.
F. Rogers, Visited Oeala's very new newest
est newest industry, the R. .L. Lang Soap
Factory. This factory is now in full
operation. It is located on Lincoln
Heights, west Ocala, and is entirely
a local stock company. So quietly has
it been brought into existence that
few, except the stockholders, know
anything of it at all, and this notice
will come as a surprise to many
Ocala citizens, who did not dream
that we possessed a soap factory.
The soap factory is admirably locat located
ed located in a well built building 40x80 feet
that- was formerly used for other
purposes, but is most admirably
adapted for its present use with a
park -like yard in front, shaded with
oak trees. The boiler that supplies
the power and the steam heat for
cooking the soap is located out in
the yard. City water has been run
into the building and to the boiler.
As soap making will probably be
as new to the average reader as it
was to the reporter, we will give an
idea of the machinery in the plant
and the uses of the different ma
chines and the general plan of mak
ing soap. First, there are huge
casks of tallow and barrels of resin
from a nearby turpentine still, and,
by the way, these two items, local
products, comprise from one-half to
three-fourths of the volume and ex expense
pense expense of soajp making. Then there
were great drums of caustic lye,
weighing 750 pounds each, bags of
rock salt and barrels of silicate soda,
or "liquid glass." These constitute,
with plenty of water, the principal
ingredients, in soap making, the salt,
however, being only used to clean or
purify the soap in the bottom of the
huge kettles, after the first drawings
have been removed.
The first process is to put the tal
low into a steam heated vat, which is
sunk in the floor. The barrel of tal
low is run over the vat, a steam pipe
inserted and the tallow is soon melt
ed and runs out, or if it is from
local supply, it -may be just dumped
in and melted by the steam. The tal
low then goes through a pipe into a
big iron tank, under the house.
The caustic lye is then placed in
the tank, a whole cask at a time, the
end of the tin covering being chopped
off, and is allowed to rest on beams
in the tank, partially submerged with
water. In the course of a few hours
the lye is dissolved, and with the
melted tallow and other ingredients,
this powerful lye solution is pumped
into the great kettle or boiler, and
the boiling process commences. The
heat in the boiler is regulated by
steam pipes and the ; mixture cooked
entirely by steam and at any degree
of heat that may be desired. This
boiler will hold sufficient solution to
make 8000 pounds of soap at a boil
ing. The entire process of making
a run of soap requires from ten to
twelve days, from the time the tallow
is melted till the bars of soap are
ready to pack and ship; but one run,
of course, can follow another without
this long wait, so that the entire
capacity of the kettle can be made
every three or four days.
The top of the kettle, which is more
than 12 feet high, has a roomy plat
form around it, on which the men
work, reached by a short flight of
steps. When the soap is cooked and
has cooled to a certain degree, it is
drawn off through a pipe into the
"crutcher," a huge steel affair, some
thing like a clothes mangle, which is
filled with paddles, and when revolv
ed by steam power, the soap is brok broken
en broken up and thoroughly mixed, and any
coloring or flavoring matter that
may be wanted is added and mixed in.
One of the half-dozen big moulds,
mounted on wheels, steel lined and
arranged so that the sides fall away,
like a cotton press, when the bale is
removed, is then rolled under the
crutcher, that machine is tipped by
power, and the great batch of soap
poured into the mould, and so on till
the 8000 pounds is drawn and mixed
These moulds have to cool for about
three days, when the sides are remov removed
ed removed and the great slab of soap, six
feet by four feet by 18 inches, is
laid out and a machine run over it,
which cuts it into three slabs the
thin way. These slabs are in turn
cut the short way, by laying them on
a table and runnings a machine thru
them, when fine wires cut the slab
into yet smaller slabs, and these are
run over a third machine and the
slabs are cut into cakes ready for the
drying frame, onto which they are
run automatically, and never touch
ed by hand. The frames are set away,
stacked one upon another and the
soap dries for three days, when it is
put through the mould or stamping
machine, which compresses the cakes,
shapes them and does the lettering, if
white laundry, soap. Attractive
wrappers have been printed for the
soap, and when wrapped and packed,
it will be as attractive as any soap
on the market.
The factory is in charge of Mr. W.
L. Kelley of Spokane, Wash., who
with his wife are now residents of
Ocala. Mr. Kelley has had many
years' experience in making soap
and understands every part of the
business. The soap he will turn out
is absolutely first class and equal to
the best that our merchants are buy buying
ing buying from the north. Mr. Kelley is
enthusiastic over his little factory
and says it. is as nicely arranged as
one could wish. The section of the
roof over the great kettle was raised
up, as if on a hinge, and the men
while working about the steaming
vessel are fanned by the breeze which
passes through freely.
Mr. Lang and his assistant, Mr. A.
C. Cuthill, have been at work on the
building and machinery for several
months and have done most of the
work themselves. Mr. Cuthill is a
thorough machinist and the two of
them, with a little help for lifting,
installed the machinery and connect
ed up everything.
CAPACITY CAN BE INCREASED
As soon as the demand justifies it,
another and larger kettle and a few
more moulds .will be put In, and with
out a great deal, more cost, the capa
city of the plant can be increased to
four times what it now is. There is
ample boiler and steam power for an
increase in capacity.
CAPITAL and SURPLUS
We solicit new business with a view
of making it mutually profitable.

Editor Star: The telephone peo people
ple people are at a loss to understand why
your paper should print twice in
sixty days a statement absolutely
untrue relative to the raising of tele telephone
phone telephone rates, a statement which you
could have verefied by referring to
your paid bills from" the telephone
company in one minute, or could have
obtained the facts in one minute by
telephoning to the telephone office.
The writer has been connected with
the telephone company since July 1,
1908, and states positively the rates
have not been raised in that time.
Our records will show this statement
to be true. Come to the office your yourself
self yourself and verify the statement with
the records. The telephone company
and the light people are using poles
jointly' in some parts of the city. This
was done at the suggestion of the
city council when we began putting in
our new telephone system two or
three years ago. This is done, as the
city suggested, to avoid two pole
lines on one street when one fills the
bill. I don't think the merchants on
the south side1 of the square want an another
other another pole line in front of their
stores, nor do the people on Oklawaha
avenue wish another pole line on that
street. It is not costing the city a
prnny more under this arrangement
than it would for the city to put in
new pole lines where jointly used,
for they would have to do some build building
ing building as well as the telephone people.
The present arrangement was enter entered
ed entered into at the suggestion of the city
why should the city wish to
change? Can you see the prompting
