Engineer Seems to Think Paper
Should Keep Silent When People

Editor Star: In Monday's issue of
the Star there appeared an article in
regard to the Lckfilling of the sew sewers.
ers. sewers. To lair-minded people and those
who aire familiar with sewer work this
article will be classified as an unjust
criticism, with a tendency to stir up
public opinion against the contractors
who are making every effort, not
only to give a satisfactory job, but to
please the public and make as few in inconveniences
conveniences inconveniences as possible.
It is impossible to backfill ten or
fifteen miles of sewer lines so that
it will not settle in a few places, es especially
pecially especially in the varied sand and clay
soils encountered on this job.
I wish to state here as we have re repeatedly
peatedly repeatedly stated in the council cham chamber,
ber, chamber, that our work is at all times open
to inspection and criticism in the
proper manner, by any city official,
taxpayer, or other responsible per person,
son, person, and that we will correct any
faults they may point out.
I want it distinctly understood that
we intend to leave a satisfactory job,
nd that our work is not being care carelessly
lessly carelessly done. i
Monday we had men out repairing
the settled spots as fast as we located
them, and also rendering assistance
to those unfortunate enough to get
"bogged up." ;.'',;
In view of the above facts, T think
the criticism in the Star highly un unjust
just unjust and think if you will go deeper
into a matter of this kind before
jumping to conclusions, you will see
that we are trying to keep in the good
opinion of the public by serving it to
the j best of our ability by giving
the city a satisfactory job, and by
trying to co-operate in every way
with the city officials in overcoming
the inconvenience that of a necessity
arise in the course of a job of this
character and scope.
Hop;ng my letter will be taken in
the same good spirit that it is writ written
ten written rnd. that no further such articles
will appear in the Star, I remain,
. Very truly yours,
Morris A. Sparmer,C. E.,

We don't know exactly what Mr.

would have consulted Mr. Sparmer if;
we had met him, tho judging; by his

the entire matter.
Mr. Sparmer hasn't been in Ocala j

All this doesn't cover up the fact
that rotten work has been done some somewhere,

It requires r.o immense amount of

the character of Ocala soil before
they began work. The Citizen's Gas

Few people in this section realize
what the establishing of the Marion

The sub-exchange, we learn by
actual figures in Manager Sandlin's
office, has handled to date 340 car carloads

Ocala packing house has received,

of fruit is sadly in the minority yet,
taking the state over, but the time is
not far distant when it will pass

of the smaller portion, of the state's
vast citrus crop.
Mr. Sandlin is quite proud, how however,

Of the great quantity of fruit

Things to Worry About.
Hens can't lay square eggs.
Our Daily Special.
The only sure thing is the thing that
happened an hour ago.
Luke McLuke Says:
A woman is certain of heaven. But
she, is always afraid that her nose is
shiny. vv : t
A man's wife always tells ber hus husband
band husband that the man next door always
comes home at a decent hour and al always
ways always behaves himself and always
takes his wife with him everywhere he
goes. And this is Just what the woman
next door is telling ber husband about
the man next door.
When she is single she believes that
she pleases all the men. When she
gets married she discovers that she
can't even please one man.
When fhey are first married she is
surprised if he doesn't kiss ber when
he gets home. But after a while she is
surprised if he doesn't cuss her when
he gets home.
Why is it that most of the things that
make life worth living are the very
things we are told we must not do?
Any man can talk bossy to his wife
when he is out with her. But he has
to take it all back when be gets home.
A woman who is too fat gets a lot of
comfort out of worrying over how
awful it would be if she were too thin.
Vou can convert cash into experience.
But it is bard to reverse the proeesi.
You can't guess a man's bank ac account

between two girls directly behind them.
We conversed with one another, but
had our ears open for what Ashurst
and Betty were say nig. One of the
girls beside me was Ida Perkins. The
only remark that could be considered
to refer to the couple In front of us
was made by Ida. It was this:
"WThy do 3rou brlffht men get stuck
In the honey of stupid girls?"
"Leave out the 'you. and r will an

she did it r
"I have heard, Mr. Ashurst" she wat

kind to feel certain of anything and
that you never force your opinions on

everything!" grunted Ashurst
"So say I that is,'. I .mean .'person
who don't kuow as much as other per persons

not constantly trying to show it ofl."
This was a trifle mixed, but Ashurst
didn't seem to mind it
"Some of the women here make mt
laugh," Betty went on. "They think
they're quite wise. Don't they tire you.
"I don't know: some of them do."
"I heard one of them Just now talk
