Ocala, Fla., Nov. 1, 1916.
Mr. H. A. Fausett, Chairman, Sani
tary Committee, City Council.
Dear Sir: I hand you herewith re
port on inspections and condition of
sewer system, mont hof October, 1916.
Have located all flush tanks, and
find only 30 of the 52 connected to
city pressure lines. It is imperative
that these tanks be connected to wa water
ter water line at an early date, so that trunk
and branch lines may be properly
flushed. The approximate cost of
connecting will be $1400. All flush
tanks that have water connections
have been adjusted and are ready for
operation when needed.
Flush tank on West Johnson street
has no overflow pipe, and several of
the shallow type tanks in Ocala
proper show considerable seepage. All
outlet valves in hand flush tanks
have been repaired and will retain
water in tanks until flushed by hand.
Cleaned out 183 manholes, getting
from two to. ten buckets of dirt from
No change in condition of settling
tank at disposal plant.
I would recommend that flush tanks
or some mode of flushing sewers be
installed at the following points:
North Ocala, E. Johnson street, Mag
nolia and Railroad avenue, Henry and
Osceola, Magnolia between Smith and
Henry, Magnolia at S. A. L. crossing.
Ocala proper: Sixth and Pine streets,
10th and Pond, 10th and Lime, Broad
way and 24th, Tu sea willa between
Adams and Oklawaha, Orange street
at hospital, and lines in the rear of
Carter's Bakery, Masters' store, Mc Mc-Iver
Iver Mc-Iver & MacKays, Merchant's block,
Ocala National Bank and Rheinauer's
The amount of water emanating
from-house connections will not be
enough to properly flush the lines
mentioned, which condition sooner or
later will cause considerable trouble
in your trunk and branch sewer lines.
In your contract with Bryan & Co.,
all manholes were to be equipped
with dust pans, but since the substi
tution from perforated manhole cov covers
ers covers to the solid type it was not neces
sary to use the dust pans, but I can
not find any record of credit to the
city for these dust pans not being in
stalled. The dust pans would have
cost at the time the contract was let
about $2.25 each, and there are about
260 manholes in the city, which would
involve a matter of about $600. r
Bryan & Co. were paid an addi
tional sum for substituting 231 man manhole
hole manhole covers, which amounted to about
House connections at Florida House

So, however the election has gone,
the country is not going to break out
into any violent blaze of joy: The
proper candidate this year would have
been the Archangel Michael. People,
uncertain themselves about the rights
and wrongs of an unprecedented, sit
uation, wanted a leader 'who they
were sure was right, and who had the
powers and the courage to make us
all do what ought to be done. St.
Michael not being available, we have
had to make a choice of merely hu
man and erring intelligence. But it
has been a trial, 'and the path ahead
looks so crooked and so stony that
there will be many hesitations either
to congratulate ourselves on the re
suit of our efforts, or to congratulate
the winner on having won. r
But at least all the flubdub and up
roar and charge and counter charge
of the campaign are over, and that is
basis for a little solid joy. Whoever
is elected, we can now get back to
the business of living, and if Mr.
Wilson has won we can adjust our
minds at once to a prospect that will
cover four years. If Mr. Wilson has
won we know more or less what to
figure on. If Mr. Hughes has got it
we must flounder governmentally for
three months, and that will be trying.
I But whoever is in we have got to
take what comes, and most of the
time have got to back the govern government.

well, perhaps, to think more of our ourselves
selves ourselves as the nation and not so much
of our government. After all, the
mass of us and not the president is
the main thing. It makes a difference
what our government does, but it
does not make all the difference.
Other governments deal with our
government, but they keep one eye on
us. We are power, money, industry;
we are public opinion, and in the long
run we must be reckoned with. We
have just delegated the most con conspicuous
spicuous conspicuous of our governmental powers
for another four years, but we have
not delegated all our powers. We
shall still help to run the country,
and though we shall seem to be pret pretty

We are the horsepower that brings

moving when the going is bad and the

Wilson's mistakes and delay s for

of the ill-effects of them? What but

which is us?
': We are a good engine; let us give
ourselves that praise. Bad driving
may send us to the repair shop, but
we are a good engine, and if Mr.
Hughes has got in he will have the

just as Mr. Wilson has had it. If Mr.
Hughes makes mistakes we will still

if he gets off the road we will chug chug-chug

Excuse these inflated remarks, but
certainly it is time to make them.
Whoever is elected president, come,
brethren, let us feel better! Have we
not had humiliation enough for the
time being? For three months the re
publican spell-binders have been tell
ing us, as freely and frequently as
they dared, that we were a disgraced
people, delinquent at, home and de

but it has been rubbed in to. beat the
truth. Now, either the chief factor
in our alleged disgrace has had notice
of dismissal, or he has had a vote of
confidence and orders to go on. Either
way, for the very land's sake, let us
feel better and hold our head3 a little
higher. Whoever is elected, we have
a great part to play in the world, and
should make bold at once to play it,
and give due backing and more to
whomsoever is elected to lead us. If
the republicans are coming in, let us
hold them to the task of repairing

If the democrats stay in let us insist

be recognized as such, and measures
taken to correct it by the. cultivation
of such powers as will enable those

Indeed, the majority .of misunder

in the" intercourse of men may be
traced to exaggerated or misleading
reports of what one has said about the

as the manner and spirit of the re remark,

one who is incapable of correctly re reporting

should refrain from attempting to con convey

may be reported in such a way as to
convey a false impression, or the spirit
of the remark may be correctly given
without the use of the exact words.
This fact Is clearly recognized by
sharp lawyers, who, when the testi
mony Is injurious to them, will not
allow a witness to give the substance
of a conversation so as to convey a
true conception of its spirit, but Insist
upon the exact words spoken, knowing
that in the effort to give them the

The Mountain Ash.
Long ago people believed in witches
and evil spirits, who were going about
the. country doing harm. They also
believed that the rowan (mountain
ash) had some charm to do away with
their evil powers.
So all the-maidens wore the scarlet
berries of the rowan" In their hair, and
the young men carried canes made
from the branches of the same tree.
The housewife hung branches of the
berries over her doorway, while her
good man hung the same about his
barns and stables, so the witches could
have no power, over his sheep and cat cattle
tle cattle and horses.
For the same purpose they kept a
great hoop of rowan branches.
Through this they made the young
calves and lambs jump. This act was
Intended to keep sickness and death
away from themat least the good
man thought so. Every animal had
to jump through the hoop whether he
wanted to or not, for the good man
switched his legs with a rowan switch
until the jumping was accomplished.
