Ocala Star: Allow me to congrat-
Kte you on the stand that you have
taken in the election which is coming
eft in Marion county today. I hope
that you will be able to remove the
worst blot upon the fair name of the
city of Ocala which it has ever bore.
Please wire me at my expense tonight
the results of the election today.
Yours very truly,

Secretary Rooney, of the Board of
I Trade, will leave this afternoon for
Washington, to work with Congress
for the Oklawaha improvement. There
ir only $10,000 for this work in the

of the greatest importance that the
enterprise be not allowed to lapse at
this particular time.
Among the veteran editors of the
state is C. O. Codnngton, who has
owned and edited the DeLand News
for twenty-three years, and kept it
financially independent all that time.
Quite a good record.
The Sun is an awfully uninterest
ing political paper. The reason of
this is that none of the state candi candidates

are about the only ones interested in
what we could say about them.
We guess most of them are inter
ested in the Star; about half of them
are on its regular subscription list.
Dr. J. M. Gross will preach his
farewell sermon next Sunday, and
will leave for annual conference the

which appeared in yesterday's Star.
It was a big job and one that could
be attended to only by some one en
