coast of South America is asking for
ships to move the vast, amounjt'J'of
freight that is piling up at the various
ports awaiting shipment to other
countries, according to information in
shipping circles here. The closing of
the Panama canal, together with new
conditions brought about by the Eu European

for, the present .congestion. All the

that there are 750,000 bales of cotton

WANTS THE TOURISTS
In speaking with Judge Bullock this
morning about Ocala and her future,
he made the pertinent inquiry, "Why
should not Ocala be a real live tourist
town ? We have ample iiotel accommo accommodations

attractions that no other section of
the state can e.qual, and which many
hundreds, of people journey every
year to see. Let Ocala make Silver

grounds, playgrounds, for we are sorely in need of
them somewhere." v
The judge said that the recent
agitation of the proposed trolley be between

brought jnany inquiries to the New

Silver Springs and Ocala. The New

We understand this boat is larger
