OF TODAY III THE LEADiliC
SITE OF THE
Seems Now Very Likely to be Moved
to the South Side of the
A final decision with regard to
moving the union station was not
leached yesterday afternoon, but, as
the matter now stands, a removal of
the station to the Masters property on
the south side of the Seaboard Air
Line .tracks seems very probable.
The Seaboard Air Line railroad, thru
W. L. Sedden, vice-president, agreed
to put up $15,000 and to pay one-half
of the cost of moving the station; B.
A. Weathers, vice president of the H.
B. Masters company, stated that an
offer of the railroads to exchange
properties, on a basis of a $20,000
bonus would be acceptable to his
company, and J. C. Murchison divis division
ion division superintendent of. the Atlantic
Coast Line, said that his road would
contribute the $5,000, which he had
been given to understand was what
was asked, and he said, he would take
up with the proper authorities of his
road the question of bearing a half
f the expense of the moving. ."He is
to advise the city, as soon as possible,
what the decision of the Atlantic
Coast Line is.
That is how the matter stood after
the conference between the officials,
and council, stripped of all discussion
and some misunderstanding. Mr.
Murchison was without authority to
act, else the removal of the station
from its present site would probablyj
have been determined at once. He
asked numerous questions with a
view to ascertaining whether there
would be any further demands on his
road in addition to the $5,000 and half
the cost of moving. WTiatever the
Coast Line appropriated, Mr. Mur
chison said, would be simply for the
purpose of trying to please the people
of Ocala. He pointed out that the
Coast Line had nothing to gain, but
much to lose, by a union station on
the site proposed, and said that it was
to the advantage of his road to have
the station on its present site. It was
agreed that an estimate of the cost
cf moving the station would be fur
nished the Coast Line, and, with this
information obtained, Mr. Murchison
said he would place the whole propo
sition before the proper officials.
Mayor Robertson, present at the
conference, said he thought the offer
of the Seaboard a most liberal one,
and that the Coast Line could afford
to meet it as asked. In any event
the mayor said that he would be one
to contribute toward the moving, if
Mr. Sedden said that he would
have work on, the station held up until
a decision is reached.

As Washington was celebrating the

no effort to deliver the note. Instead
he directed embassy employes to give
what information he deemed it advis
able to make public. He then went
to a summer resort for the day.
Secretary Lansing was told of the
arrival of the reply by newspaper
men. He' semed eratified bv a de-
scription of the contents, but with
held formal comment. The general
ecling here was, despite withholding
current comment pending a study of
the contents of the note, that the
crisis in the Mexican situation has
assed. If unofficial versions are
borne out there undoubtedly will be a
resumption of friendly negotiations
and in the absence of further serious

How Dots the Chimney Swvift Get Ker

In the autumn chimney swift nests
often made the chiiuaey smoke, and
they had to fished out or knocked
down by lowering a j-lne branch on a

Once upon a lime, of course, these
swallows built in hollow trees. But a
pair of them, flying over Plymouth in
1021, spied something which looked
like a new kind of tree, and the breed
was on its way to a new procedure.
Possibly the fact that chimneys are
safer from squirrels, coons, owls and
other possible enemies was a factor in
determining the" change. Then. too. it

MORPHY, THE CHESS WIZARD
Marvelous Skill of the Greatest Master
"of Modern Times.
Paul Charles Morphy, the famous
American chess player, is classed as
"perhaps the most remarkable chess
player of modern times." He was
born In New Orleans in 1S37 and was
notably precocious as a child. He
showed this precocity particularly in
games of chess, and before he was
thirteen had defeated many well
known amateurs. For several years
he studied law at the College of South
Carolina and played chess only occa occasionally.
sionally. occasionally. But in 1S57, at the first
American chess congress, held in New
York, he easily defeated the best play
ers that could be brought against him.
In 1858" Morphy went to England
and there defeated Lowenthal. Bodcn
and Bird and performed the most as astonishing
tonishing astonishing feats in simultaneous games
without the board. When he was in
Paris, the same year, he woa five out
of eight games with llarrwitz and
gave many exhibitions of blindfold
playing. It was these last that were
responsible for the early breakdown
of his health.
After his return to the United States
in 1S59 be defeated the visiting (ier
man expert. Anderssen, in seven out of
eleven games. lie was admitted to
the bar and began to practice law in
New Orleans. But the strain of his
blindfold contests had been too great
for his mind, and he was forced to
give np chess altogether and then to
abandon all mental occupation. lie
lived in retirement until his death in
1884. His activity thus covered a com comparatively
paratively comparatively short space of time.
Morphy's skill is described as Inex
pllcable. He never was a close stud
ent of chess. He played his games
easily and quickly, with no prepara
tion and little hesitation. Yet his com
binations were "remarkable for finesse,
depth, elegance and soundness." no

A King's Ransom.
The expression "worth a king's ran

mean the ransoms paid for a king,
more probably refers to that paid to a
king. In early times, when armies re received

the soldier's reward was the booty tak taken

had' a tight to the bodies as well as the
goods of the prisoners he captured.
The conqueror might slay his prisoner,

on payment of a ransom. But though
it was the common practice In feudal
times for the Individual raptor to re receive
ceive receive the ransom for prisoners of low
degree, those for princes or great no nobles

hence a king's ransom.
