.Statistics, which our observations

growing industry of Florida is mak making

county is getting almost twice the
money out of her hog and cattle in industry
dustry industry that she obtained ten years
ago. The same conditions prevail
over the state as a whole, the native
cattle having been increased greatly
in numbers and the grade has been
greatly improved by the introduction
of better bulls on the ranges.
The increased number of cattle
grazing the woods and fields is very
noticable to a person traveling thru
the country. From Jacksonville to
Ocala and on south to Brooksville and
Orlando, the Woods are well sprinkle

thousands of them to be seen in
day's travel.
Just now the grass is very fine and
conditions are most favorable to

canoes glided up and down the rive
hundreds' of years before the water
was churned by the paddlewheel or

even their bones are dust. The river
formerly made one of its long de
tours there, coming down almost to
Grahamville,, then curving back and
sweeping around a mile or more to
return to its course, a hundred yards
or so from where it diverged. Some

price should make up for the lack of
it. The crop is a little late, but for
all of that is ten days earlier than

10 N. Orange St. Ocala, Fla.


The visitor to Silver Springs can't i
help but note with admiration the
improvements that have been made
in the last few months. . j
The most noticeable i3 the big, new
bathhouse. This is one of the largest
and best arranged in the state. There
are 75 -ooms, 35 for ladies and 40 for
men. The rooms are nicely and con conveniently
veniently conveniently arranged, those for the
ladies at one end and those for men
at the other.' Each division has a
big dressing room, properly fitted up.
Specially noticeable is a big mirror
in the ladies' dressing room. Between
the divisions is a central office where
the bathers may obtain suits, of
which a large stock of the best is
kept on hand. The price is very
moderate, 25 cents for bathroom and
suits, or 15 cents for those who fur furnish
nish furnish their own suits. The bath bathhouses
houses bathhouses are under the management of
Mr. G. T. Madden.
A concrete foundation has been
laid for a new dancing pavilion,
which will soon be erected and up to
date. The old pavilion is to be re removed,
moved, removed, and docks and piers take its
In the next few weeks a bus line
will be put on between Ocala and the
springs, enabling passengers to make
the round trip for 25 cents. This
will not be as good as a trolley line,
but better than anything afforded so
far for those who do not own cars.;
Ed. Carmichael is making all these
improvements, and as the reporter
looked over the buildings, new and
old, the two fine passenger yachts and
the big freight boat, which were all
in the basin Saturday morning he
couldn't help reflecting that big big-hearted
hearted big-hearted old Ed. has never counted his
money when it came to doing things
that might help his home city, along,
and hoping that some day soon he
might reap a reward. He has been
paid mostly in thanks so far.
The golf links, or the Ocala, CounH
try Club's grounds, are unusually
beautiful at present. Always a pretty
spot, just now the links, with their
spring carpet of bright green grass
and tfie many beautiful water and
live oak trees in their first prime of
early summer foliage present a most
inviting appearance, which, is added
to not a little by the green farm
crops on the adjoining hillsides. This
property is indeed an asset to Ocala
and is by no means appreciated by
our people. N
Arrangements have been "complet "completed

Essay by Miss Katie Mae Eagleton
at Closing Exercises of the
Ocala High School
In Gentsis God commanded man to
subdue the earth. That meant, among
other things, to seek out nature's
forces and make them do his bidding.
These forces are like mighty giants.
Man first subdued fire and water,
two of the most powerful and most
useful of all giants. Then a little
child, James Watt, discovered the
third giant, steam. One day he heard
this mighty giant, or rather one of
his genii, struggling to escape from
his mother's kettle. It alone was not
strong enought, but when countless
numbers of these little genii are
united, we have a giant mighty
enough to pull thousands and thou thousands
sands thousands of pounds. Yet there remain remained
ed remained a giant, undiscovered, the mighti mightiest
est mightiest of all electricity. As Atlas, in
fable, held the world on his should shoulders
ers shoulders so today electricity in truth hold3
the world on its mighty shoulders.
This greatest giant of all has not
been fully subdued, but each day
brings it more and more under the
control of man. Surely our own

end will be, what wonderful discover discoveries
ies discoveries are yet to be made by this still
young inventor, time and Edison can
alone tell.
From Fowler we learn that from
the beginning of time, man has been
familiar with the manifestations of
electricity, for they are all around us.
But the first recorded observance
comes to us from the Greeks. How However,
ever, However, they were ruled by superstition,
and when they saw the amber pos possessed,
sessed, possessed, when rubbed with a cloth or
fur, the power of attracting to itself
light particles of dust or parchment,
they thought that a spirit in the am amber

Then during the sixteenth century
scientific investigations were made
and it was discovered that different
substances possessed the power of at attraction

discoveries by Benjamin .Franklin.
During an electric storm he sent up

So was established the identity ; of
lightning with the gentle manifesta manifestations

or amber. Then followed all of the
great electrical inventions which we
have today. r
What would our up-to-date house housewife
wife housewife think, if today she had to use
lamps and go to town every time she
wanted the least little thing?, To her,
I think the invention of the electric
light and telephone is the most valu valuable,
able, valuable, also to her husband, the busi
ness man. Gradually electricity is
taking the place of steam and even
of fire. Of course we could never en entirely
tirely entirely do without steam and fire, for
they are needed to obtain electricity,
but in many places it is used where
t j i .
lurmeny iney were used. UO into a
modern home and there you will find
the electric door bell, electric heater,
electric iron and most recent of all an
electric incubator. It is an endless
wonder to us, how people used to live
without electricity. Now to go out
side of the home. What is that large
black thing propelling itself? It re
senjbles a buggy, but where is the
horse? Of course it is an automo
bile. Compare the electric car with
the old horse and steam car, and you
will see how we have advanced. On
the farm, motors are taking the place
of horses. Ploughing, fertilizing, and
planting are done by the motors,
which do the work more quickly and
thoroughly. The windmill is also be
ing displaced by the motor. Recently,
in Columbus, Ohio, an enormous
birthday cake was made in recogni
tion of the thirty-fifth anniversary of
a large store, and instead of the tra
ditional tallow candles electric can
dies were used and proved very satis
Let us consider for a moment the
greatity scope of electric in the med
ical world. Only a few years ago, if
anything became imbedded in the
flesh below the surface, the knife was
the only remedy known, with which
to even locate the object. Now by
use of the X-Ray photography the ob object
ject object is instantly located and also the
extent of the injury it has done. The
electric light has also proved of great
value in the exploration of the nose,
throat, ear, eye and many other parts
of the body. If the doctors of a cen century
tury century ago could only behold the won
ders of this age!. Electricity is now
i common medicine. It is certain
y more pleasant to take, more easi easi-y
y easi-y administered, and quicker in re
sults than the old time medicine. In
cases of neuralgia, cholera, sciatica,
umbago, muscular contractions and
certain skin diseases electricity has
been successfully used.
By means of this greatest giant
today man may fly through the air as
a bird or stay under water an unlimit-
ime as a fish. Perhaps, when think

Essay by Miss Laura Louise Sanders

at Closing Exercises of the
Ocala High School
The south, with her many-fold In
dustries and resources, is just now be
ginning to gain the place in the world
for which they hare naturally fitted
her. She is coming into her own and
making use of all her facilities with
which nature has so bountifullr en
dowed her. Even though she r as al
ready succeeded in attracting the at attention
tention attention of the world, she is only in
the infancy of her, greatness. Who
can predict the future in store for
her? The wonderful climate and in
exhaustible resources of the south
suggest that she should be the garden
spot of the world, the Mecca, which
the northern people are seking and
should seek for recreation and rest.
The climate itself is an asset. Think
for a moment how the northern tour
ist must feel when he comes, for the
first time to our own fair Florida! He
has left behind him- the long, bleak
winters, and here he finds the green
trees, fruit, palms, ferns and flowers
in profusion. Our mild climate and
rich soil make it possible for almost
any crop to grow in the south. In the
extreme southern regions we find the
tropical fruits; a little farther north
we find the vast fields of rice, cotton
and sugar cane; still farther north in
the border states of the south we find
corn, tobacco, oats, barley, flax and
wheat. .Not only is the south rich in
her agricultural resources, but also in
her mineral deposits, for coal, iron
and phosphate are found in abund abundance.

Although the south has such vast
resources and had them ; sixty years
ago, it. is" only 'in the present genera generation
tion generation that she has awakened and is
still awakening to the wonderful
strength that lies hidden, as It were,
within her. Picture with me the con
dition of the south at the beginning
of the civil war. She had few means
of transportation. Her sole industry
was agriculture. She exported little
else than cotton and tobacco and im imported
ported imported nearly everything else that she
needed. On the other hand, the north
had railroads, a mrchant marine ply plying
ing plying between the different ports of our
country and between our ports and
the ports of all nations. She had
great manufacturing interests. She
produced great quantities of fruit.
meat and grain. Then, is it any won
der that the south was defeated? Is
it not a wonder that it required the,
north four years to cause that noble
defeat of Lee at Appomattox Court
House ? The difference in strength
was not so much the disparity in forc forces
es forces as it was the difference in commer commercial
cial commercial and industrial strength. :a ; ;
Though defeated in the contest and
returning home only to be confronted
with ruin on every side, she .had a still
greater burden on her hands, that of
the black people just freed. She now
saw that she must adapt herself to
circumstances and do the best she
could toward the ignorant blacks
around her. Can you imagine a more
serious condition than that of the
south at this time, when it was neces necessary
sary necessary to form a more unified govern government
ment government out of a state of chaos and ruin?
In short, when it was necessary to
buiid anew the whole south, on a wid
er and broader plane 'than it existed
before the war? But for awhile after
this tremendous struggle the south,
completely exhausted from the ef effects
fects effects of the war, lay prostrate like a
great giant, cowed because he could
not stand to his full height in the

world. It seemed as if everything
had combined to keep him down, and
there he lay only breathing enough to
keep him alive; not thinking of the
days when he strode so proudly orer
the battle ground and swept every everything
thing everything from before him; not caring any
more for the .famous rebel yell that
had led him on to victory; not caring
for his future that was to guard the
destiny of the south. Such was the
condition of this giant, the unherald unheralded
ed unheralded champion of the Lost Cause. But
soon he realized that the sun was star staring
ing staring him full in the face, and he began
to awaken, first stretching out one
limb and then another until he was
on his feet again. He saw that the
dawn of another and more hopeful
day was rising before him. Then it
was that the south awakened, and be began
gan began like the giant to regain her lost
strength and to develop herself Into
a more powerful and Independent
country than she existed before the
war. It was only for a short time aft after
er after the close of the war that the south
lay in this sleepy, passive state just
pictured; for It was in Hayei admin administration
istration administration that she began the great
work of building the new south, which
she is still carrying onward. During
the seventies Henry W. Grady said of
her: "The south is enamored of her
new work. Her soul is stirring with
the breath of a new life. The light of
a grander day is falling fair In her
face. She is thrilling with the con consciousness
sciousness consciousness of a growing power and
prosperity. As she stands upright,
full statured and equal among the
powers of the earth, breathing the
keen air and looking out on the ex expanded
panded expanded horizon, she understands that
her emancipation came because,
through the inscrutable wisdom of
God, her honest purpose was crossed
and her brave armies were beaten.
-The cause of this great awakening
was in a large part the result of the
civil war, and the changed conditions
in the south resulting therefrom.

While the south still constitutes
the mos diversified agricultural sec-

south, and in point of value is still

today the south manufactures more
