Tonight the British have taken half
of Morval, all of the Lee Boeuf and
have advanced their line on a front of
3,000 yards for an average depth of
1,000 yards; the French have stormed
Rancourt and have pushed their line
to 'the outskirts of the village of
Fregicourt, a mile east and a little
north of Combles. The German strong-
hold of Combles is viitually isolated.
The correspondent of the Associat-
ed Press went forward yesterday over
the ridge in the Devil's wood and
Ginchy region which the British had
f ought for over two months to gain.
He walked for two miles through an
area which reverberated to the blasts
of the great guns, picking his way
between the bursts of flame and
crashing pieces, and moving around
the rows of cannon as one who seeks
a ford in a stream. On the other side
of the ridge he saw guns where he
had never seen them before, on the
promised land of the lower levels
which the British had won by per persistent
sistent persistent siege work. The guns were
! close up to the British infantry who
listened to their thunderous chorus as
'hey poured out fire after fire in the

On his return the correspondent de-
cided he would not pass through that
wilderness of British guns of all sizes
and caliber while he had any hearing
left. Everyone of them was firing at
top speed. He chose a gallery which
took him many miles past those pour pouring

Shortly after noon was the time
chosen for the infantry to rush for forward

chorus of hell from the artillery. The
ridges hr front n?id on either hand
were flecked with racing sparks of
flame. Within an hour at least fifty
thousand shells must have been fired
within sight of the correspondent.
Far to the south was Mont St.
Quentin, two miles from Peronne and
commanding that town, which the al allied
lied allied commanders say will fall like a
ripe plum when the time comes. The
hill lay hazy above the green foliage
of the river valley in the midst of

night for the purpose of considering

ing rise to a hated controversy, de de-deveoped

Col. R. A Burford, counsel for Mr.
Benjamin Thompson, the contractor,
characterized as a "love feast." Coun Council
cil Council backed Twombly & Henney, the
city's engineers, and everybody was
satisfied. The work on the plant will
now proceed merrily.
The change in the De La Vergne oil
engine was first disposed of. Upon
the recommendation of Engineer Hen
ney, speaking for his firm, council ap approved
proved approved the change of engine, and
agreed that the city would pay for
the necessary change in the concrete
foundations for the new piece of ma machinery
chinery machinery upon the basis of the cost of
the original foundations called for. It
was again pointed out, and this time
by Mr. Henney, for the engineers, Mr,.
Thompson, the contractor, and Mr.
Gibbes, representing the De La Vergne
people, that the city would get in the
new oil engine a very superior piece
of machinery. Mr. Gibbes said that
the city would get an engine costing
the manufactures from $6000 to $7000
more than the city would pay for it,
the city would get a larger generator,
costing about $500 mare than the city
would pay for it, and the increase in
freight on the new' machinery would
cost the manufacturers about $300.
Mr. Gibbes said that Ocala would get
the best oil engine to be had. The De
La Vergne company, Mr. Gibbes said,
realized the opportunity it had here
in Ocala of proving the worthiness of
its engine. He said his company
realized that the eyes of the engineer engineering
ing engineering world would be on the plant here,
in which the oil engine would be
operated in direct competion with a
steam engine. Mr. Gibbes said that
the De La Vergne people asked that
the new engine be placed on a larger
foundation than called for in the
specifications for the plant. Mr.
Thompson said that the larger foun
dation would call for more concrete
and an increase in tne cost 01 con
struction, and asked that the city al
low him payment for this increase
Mr. Henney thought that the founda
tions called, for by the De La Vergne
people not necessary in view of the
peculiar soil conditions obtaining on
the site of the new plant. Mr. Gibbes
said that Mr. Henney was correct in
what he said, but asked that the
specifications of the De La Vergne
company for the foundations be adopt
ed. Mr. Gibbes said, and Mr. Henney
agreed, that the' increased cost would
be but a small item as compared with
the small cost of the better engine
the city would get. Mr. Gibbes said
that he' would like the- city to tie the
De La Vergne company "hand and
foot," in order that, in case anything
should go wrong at any time, the
company could not come back andsay
that the city did not put in the proper
Councilman Moore voted against
approving the action of the engineers
in making changes of engines. Mr.
Moore wanted to know why the De La
Vergne people had not spoken of the
better engine in the first place. He
said that he could not understand why
any manufacturer would want to give
the city $6000 or $7000 worth of ma
chinery, nor why the city should pay

thought that the De La Vergne com-
pany should be willing to pay for the
foundation also, as lone- as the com-
pany was so willing to put in the
large engine. J
MrHennev told council that it was
but proper that the contractor should
be paid for am extra cost on the
foundations, and said that if the con-
tractor wished council to approve the
action of the engineers in accepting
the change of engines it was nothing
but right that the contractor should
have the approval of council. Mr,
Henney said that his firm had acted,
in the matter in accordance with the
authority given them in contract and
The second matter disposed of con
cerned the foundation for the water
tower. Mr. Thompson contended that
his contract did not call er the con-
struction of this loundation. yi. uur-
ford, for the contractor, contended
that there was nothing, in the con-1
tract and nothing in the specifications
referring to the foundation for the
tower, and that all other foundations
were referred to. Mr. nenney pointed
out that the engineers were given an-
thority to interpret the plans and
specifications, and said that the foun-
dation for the tower was plainly
shown on the plans for tne piant. mr.
Henney said that when the water
tower item was eliminated from, Mr.
Thompson's contract, and given to the
R. D, Cole company of Newnan, Ga.,
the Cole contract was for the tower
"above the foundation," which left the
bundation in Mr. Thompson's con
Col. Burford cdntended that the'en-
gineers could not act as a judicial
tnbunal; could not decide what was
in Mr. Thompson s contract ana wnaii
was not in it. Col. Burford said that
his client had not come before council
to make a figljt against that body or
against the engineers, but simply to
point out the disadvantage under
which the contractor labored because
of the difference of opinion as to
whether the water tower foundations
were a part of the contract or not.
Col. Burford said that Mr. Thompson
would be satisfied to have council sup-
pert the engineer's contention, and
give instructions to have' the work
proceed; that Mr. Thompson would go
ahead with the work under protest,!
claiming that the foundation was not
m the contract, and asiang ior a set-
mere was a discussion witn regard
to certain- conversations, that took
place at the time the contract tor tne
ight and water plant was awarded,
among ihembers.of the council, the
city attorney and the contractor. Mr.
Thompson contended that in these
conversations it was agreed that the
tower foundations were not to be
part of his contract. Mr. Henney said
that conversations had nothing to do
with it, that tlfe written agreements
should be the guide in the matter. He
said that he could not do otherwise
than advise council to insist on Mr.
Thomnson's nutting in the founda
tion, either this, or that the city have
the foundation put in and charged
against the contractor. Mr. Henney
said-that council should be guided by
the advice of the city attorney, and
that council would be safe in doing so.
Mr. Henney a few minutes before had
had a conversation with Frederick
Hocker, city attorney.
, Council instructed the engineer to
have work on the tower foundation
start at once, according to the engi
neer's interpretation, which was that
the foundation constitute a
Mr. Thompson's contract. Mr. Thomp
son said that he would start work im
mediately. He said he thought the!
whole matter merely an honest dif-
ference of opinion between the en engineer
gineer engineer and himself as to what was in
the contract and what not. Council Councilman
man Councilman Moore had asked to be excused
before the vote on this matter was
Council next asked Mr. Henney to
reply to Mr. Thompson's request for
itemized estimates of work done on
the plant. Mr. Henney said that he
had been preparing itemized esti
mates, and that copies of the same
were attached to the statements given
the council, and to the bank. Mr." Hen
ney said that he would gladly give Mr.
Thompson a copy of the itemized
statement at any time. Mr. Thomp
son, Mr. Henney said, had never ask asked
ed asked for one. Mr. Thompson admitted
this, it was agreed that the con
tractor would get the statement asked
for in the future.

It's a sorrowful fact there was very
little religious persecution in the
world until Christianity began to
make its influence felt. The heathen
were generally polite to each other's
gods. Each tribe or nation bragged
on its own deities but seldom perse persecuted
cuted persecuted another tribe or nation for any
such reason. The most elaborate and
liberal of ancient mythologies was
that of the Greeks; they had a god for
everything they could think of, and
when they had exhausted the list they
were so afraid they had neglected
something that they erected a shrine
to "The Unknown God," which had no
image, and which the Christians,
therefore, claimed was theirs. When Whenever
ever Whenever the Romans conquered a nation
they took its gods under their protec
tion, and they had a great temple in
Rome where every religion, was rep
resented by an image and an altar.
The children of Israel were rather in
tolerant, but after killing out the
Canaanites, whose lands they wanted,
their' intolerance was ingrowing
rather than outgrowing. They had
severe laws against any of their own
people who followed after false gods,
but it didn't seem to occur to them to
go out into the countries around and
butcher the heathen. The Romans
were tolerant toward the Christians
at first, but when the Christians be
gan to insist that all other religions
give way to theirs the Romans be
came peeved, and massacres followed.
It always makes a religion popular
to persecute it, (a number of people
in this state had best remember that)
and the Christians grew in numbers
and power, and soon took charge of
the Roman empire. When they came
into power, they persecuted the
heathen more severely than the
heathen had persecuted them. Then
they split into sects, and persecuted
each with a cruelty to which the
heathen world had been a stranger.
After awhile, they resolved them
selves into three great branches the
Roman Catholics in the West, and the
Greeks and Armenians in the East.
They fought each ether for a century
or two, and then the Mohemmedans
came along. Their religion was hon
estly that of the sword; a man accept accepted
ed accepted it, or died or became a slave. In
the matter of massacres, the Mo
hammedans seem to have had the
bulge on all other religions. They
killed Christians all the way from
the Indus to' the Atlantic; then they
went into India and China and mur
dered Buddhists and Brahmans by
the millions. The Mohammedans were
not unnecessarily cruel about their
massacres, however. As a rule, they
did not torture a man. They simply
killed him and then went on to the
next one. The Christians retaliated
to the best of their ability. They were
under a disadvantage, as their coun
tries were mostly those invaded. How
ever, they got in quite a few lively
massacres of their cwn, particularly
during the Crusades, when they but
chered so many Mohammedans in
Asia Minor, Syria and Palestine that
they began to have hopes of tieing the
score. Meantime, the Mohammedans
had a split among themselves, but it
unfortunately did not go far enough
tc decrease their numbers very much.
During these blood-soaked centuries,
Christians and Mohammedans vied in
persecuting the Jews, in which per persecution
secution persecution the Christians were the most
vigorous, owing probably to the fact
that the Jews had more money than
anybody else. When the Spanish in
vaded America, they took their relig religion
ion religion with them, and gave most of the
natives they met the alternative bf
being converted and enslaved or being
killed. Their progress in Mexico and
South America was like that of the
Mohammedans thru Asia and Africa.
About that time the Reformation be began
gan began in Western Europe and brought
on more trouble. The Catholics had
been in power so long that they were
surprised at anybody not agreeing
with them and tried to suppress argu argument

Bob dizzily went below. A surgeon

From that room, too, all breakables
had been removed. Bob was used to
the bareness of the rooms as a pre preliminary
liminary preliminary to the firing of the big guns
in battle practice, but the bareness
affected him differently now.
In addition to absolutely essential ar articles,

room but two photographs In leather

(Starnes had married the year after he
graduated; Bob was his best man),

like Garry, too, and wearing proudly

Bob bent and gazed closely at the

after a minute.
"He's all right." Garry winked and

Bob had noticed the picture, but he
did not want to talk about It "You

Garry had not been close enough to
suffer from the explosion, but he was
badly shaken. He had had to make
more of an adjustment perhaps than
Wendell, for Bob, forty houre before,
had seen a man destroyed, and he had
gone off and left the body beside the
road because It was war. It was yet
novel to Garry, though he had played
the pretense in practice many times to
go about his business after men on
the ship had just been killed.

Wendell realized that the sound pi

that he did not take trouble to find out

and that Starnes did not concern him himself

A Beautiful Tribute to Mrs. Gary
Tuesday afternoon at 4 o'clock the
Daughters of the Confederacy met at
the home of Mrs. R. G. Blake for the
purpose of commemorating the birth
and life of Mrs. Fannie R. Gary. Mrs.
E. Li. Carney presided. The following
program was rendered:
Lord's Prayer in concert.
Hymn, Sweet Bye and Bye.
Scripture lesson and prayer by Rev.
J. R. Herndon.
Eulogy by Mrs. R. G. Todd.
Solo, Ave Maria Miss Irma Blake.
Address by Rev. Bunyan Stephens.
Hymn, How Firm a Foundation."
These services in honor of one of
Ocala's noblest women was a beautiful
tribute to one who gave her life for
the good of others. Mrs. Todd, in her
paper, mentioned a number of inter interesting
esting interesting incidents and characteristic
features of the life and work of Mrs.
Gary; The subject of the character
sketch is altogether a worthy one.
The subject matter of Mrs. Todd's
sketch was to the point and deserves
the highest commendation.
Mr. Stephens called attention to
the fact that the people are meeting
often to celebrate the anniversaries of
the great men and women of the past.
Then he mentioned some facts in ref reference
erence reference to greatness, namely: "In
God's thought the greatness of mind
and spirit rise to an immeasurable
height above that of any material
body; true greatness is inherent; it is
not inherited; it is not dependent on
position, possessions or patronage patronage-true
true patronage-true greatness consists in being right
and doing right
Mr. Herndon read for the scripture
lesson that beautiful and impressive
incident in the fourteenth chapter of
Mark which relates the story of the
woman breaking the alabaster box of
ointment, and pouring it on the head
of Jesus. The account records the
complaint made by Judas and the
words of commendation from Jesus,
closing with the words : "Wheresoev "Wheresoever
er "Wheresoever the gospel shall be preached
throughout the whole world, that al also
so also which this woman hath done shall
be spoken of for a memorial of her."
In closing his remarks Mr. Steph Stephens
ens Stephens quoted the following poem by
Chas. S. Ross;
"I love old mothers mothers
with white hair,
And kindly eyes, and lips grown soft softly
ly softly sweet
With murmuring blessings over sleep sleeping
