Gentlemen of the Council: Before

beg to advise that I feel that I have
not received the cordial and undivided
co-operation of the council in the ex

your city government. There has
been an open and indifferent manifes manifestation

the council; opposition shown and

endeavored to overcome all of this,
by hewing straight to the line of
right conduct and management, plan planning

efficient and beneficial results for thfc

Therefore, unless there is to be

this plan of commission government,
I shall not ask a continuation in your
service as city manager after May

Alderman Mclver in speaking of

operating, and that it was up to the
members to stand by him in his ef efforts

City Manager Johnston's letter to
the city council last night was quite
a stiff one, but he seems to have been
justified in writing it, and Alderman
Mclver's comments on it were to the
point. If we are going to have a city
manaerer. we must let him manage
and if we proceed to treat others as
we have treated Mr. Johnston, we will
not be able to obtain any. If we re
vert to the old plan of the chairmen
of the different committees managing
city affairs, with only five men on the
council, and two of them out of the

else resign, and let the people elect
aldermen who will.
The Miami Metropolis says that
James Gordon Bennett "never
worth-while thing in his life as a
newspaper man. He merely inherited
his father's big institution and his
father's elorv. And he ran. a 'per
sonal' column that made him an exile
from his country, dodcring the police.
Mr. Bennett passed most of his time
for the last forty years in Europe, but
so far from being an exile from nis
country, he was a frequent visitor to
it, until old age began to tell on nun.
When he died, the Herald had ten
times the circulation and influence it
had when he received it from his
father. The "personal column" was
instituted by the elder Bennett and
abolished by his son. It is difficult to
tell whether ignorance or 'prejudice
predominates on the staff of the Me Metropolis.

privilege granted American citizens,
that of fighting the battles of our
country for freedom and civilization,
but now feel you will pardon me if I
give you a few facts to correct some
errors appearing in the press which
are in conflict with the information I
have given George's friends.
Soon after the world war started,
George while yet in college decided
with his cousin and a college friend
to go into the war on the British side
as an engineer and was arranging on
the Canadian side accordingly, when
his brother Robert confidently advised
me of his intentions. I then wrote
him that situated as he was then
with our own country neutral but
likelv soon to become involved hei
should complete his studies and
while proud of the stand he took on
the principles of right he should wait
until his own country needed him,
and when that time came I would b
clad to have him go.
He yielded in this instance but the
moment our country declared war he
at once wrote me reminding me of
my promise and at the same time tell
ing me that Lockwood, Green & Co.,
in whose service he was then employ employed
ed employed on large works as resident engi engineer,
neer, engineer, wanted him to finish the work
he was then engaged on, which in
volved over a million dollars in con
I then advised him that I consider considered
ed considered that his best plan would be to
write Senator Fletcher, giving his
age and experience, requesting mai
he file the same with the proper de
partment, advising that he was ready
to go where and whenever called
upon; then try and finish his work
with Lockwood, Green & Company,
unless called upon sooner. This he
promised to do but later chafing un
der delay, he again wrote the engi
neering department at Washington
and was informed that while his ap
plication was filed that his age was
against him, he being only twenty-
five years, and that thousands of en engineers
gineers engineers of more mature years and
experience were ahead of him in the
He then tried for the officers7 train
ing school and was turned down on
account of color blindness, tie im
mediately filed application in the
South and again failed. He then tried
the navy and failed and got satisfac
tion at that time for immediate serv
ice and he immediately left for At Atlanta,
lanta, Atlanta, failing there. He then went to
Washington, writing from there that
it seemed to him America did not
want his services and that he deter..
mined to go where possibly England
or France would give him a show and
wanted to tell his brother Robert to
be ready to go with him if he wished
to go to France. As finding no other
way he felt confident he could get
over there if he had to shovel coal or
one of our ships. The next day, how
ever, I received a message- from
Washington that through his begging
and pleading he got into the Rain
bow division and secured a place also
for his brother Robert, and both went
to Camp Mills and then across to
France with their friend, John Chazal.
His promotion was rapid to master
engineer, senior grade. ; He -was then
elected as one of over forty candi
dates from different Amerjcan engi
neering regiments for an officers'
training school in France. Only
twenty-five of these finished the
course and but seventeen passed for
recommendation for. commissions, and
George was second, being only about
six tenths of a point below the high
est, who was a graduate of Yale of
the 1909 class and had been one year
with the Canadian army and six
months with the Americans.
ueorge was recommended lor a I
commission and was then on the
waiting list when the great misfor
tune befell him, that the following
telegram was tne nrst notice given
"Washington, May 18, 1918.
"Mr. George MacKay, Ocala, Fla.:
"Deeply regret to inform you that
Master Engineer Senior Grade Geo.
L. MacKay, engineer, is officially re reported,
ported, reported, as missing in action April
20th. Will report first information
"The Adjutant General."
Last night I rceeived a letter -from
a lady whose husband was in the
same regiment and a good friend of
my son, and as I have not the lady's
permission to publish either her let letter
ter letter or name, I merely give an excerpt
from her husband's letter as it refers
to George, as follows:
"George MacKay of Ocala, who
will be reported missing soon, is a
great friend of mine and is of our
regiment. He was the next master
engineer in rank to me and died or
was captured during his duty. The
French have awarded him the cross
of war. It is not sure he is dead and
I rather believe he is captured."
The above is self explanatory and
only goes to show that the American
boys will do their duty.
Yours truly, George MacKay.
Miss Sidney Perry
WVve been a class since 1906,
A class of greatest fame,
One of which our school i3 proud
For "our best" has been our aim. -So
today I can be happy,
That even when we part
The prints of your kind fingers
Will linger on my heart.
For our lives are so entangled
And the days were all so fair,
If you follow the gold thread backwards
Youll find my classmates there.
What meaning has this parchment,
Stamped with a golden seal?
- It holds 'neath its inscription
For our friend the love we feel;
The love for our sister-classmates,
The faith in our teachers dear,
The honor for our old high school
And the hope for our future clear.
So here's to you, my classmates,
And to our high school strong
In which we've played the noblest part
Of righting all the wrong;
For really, we were never mean,
This wonderful class of the year '18.
If in 'fourteen, a "Sophie" cried,
"This problem I can't do!"
Just let a "Freshie" tackle it
And straight-way it went through,
For truly, we were never green,
This wonderful class of the year '18.
In Sophomore class we were very strong;
Our knowledge great was earned,
So on throughout our Junior year
There was little left to learn.
In truth, our minds are all quite keen
This wonderful class of the year '18.
" So here's to this grand old country,
The Red, the White and the Blue;
A health to our boy in the Navy
To whom well e'er be true.
Now drink to the banner of White and Green
Of the wonderful class of the year '18.
This is the amount asked lor by the Red Cross from
the citizens of the United States. .Marion County's
quota is only $10,000 and should be subcribed at
once. If everyone will do his duty the amount
will be raised before the wTeek is out.

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money.' Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands good3 and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. Ani. if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.

When Swift & Company

672 pounds goes to market
as beef; the other 528
pounds consists of hide,

When the packer pays 15
cents a pound for a steer, he sells
the meat to the retailer for about
24 cents. But the packer gets only

This means that the packer

The difference of 1 cent per

The Lost Word
There was in ray heart today
Something exquisite to say,
Fluttering like a darkling bird,
Vainly trying to be heard,
Stirring like a prisoned rose,
Like a waif of music strayed
In corridors where no one goes.
All life's sweetness past the telling
Seemed within my heart upwelling,
Softly suing to be said
In one lonely, perfect word;
Yet in vain I tried to free
What my heart would say to me.

A FIGHT FOR LIFE
It has been fight or die for many
of us in the past and the lucky persons
are those who are now well because
they heeded nature's warning signal
in time to correct their trouble with
that wonderful new discovery of Dr.
Pierce's, called "An-urlc." You should
promptly heed these warnings, some
of which are dizzy spells, backache,
irregularity of the urine or the pain painful
ful painful twinges of rheumatism, sciatica or
lumbago. To delay may make pos possible
sible possible the dangerous forms of kidney
diseases such as stone in the bladder.
To overcome these distressing con conditions
ditions conditions take plenty of exercise in the
open air," avoid a heavy meat diet,
drink freely of water, and at each
meal take Doctor Pierce's Anurlc Tab Tablets
lets Tablets (double strength). You will, in a
short time, find that you are one of
the firm indorsers of Anuria
Stlacauga, Ala. "I suffered greatly
with my back and
kidneys. I called in
doctors and they
did me no good,
a n operation. I
advertised so sent
up to the drug
store and got a
package, and It
cured me. I was
down In bed
and had taken many different kinds of
medicines but obtained no relief from
them." A. W. Cumbie.
Caesar, Miss. "I have been taking
Dr. Pierce's Anurlc Tablets for uric
acid and kidney trouble, and would
say to anyone who Is afflicted with
such, please, for your health's sake,
try Anuric without delay. I had used
several different remedies but to no
avail; now I am recommending Anuric
far and wide." B. J. Williams.

DO YOU WANT TO
SELL YOUR FARM ?
We have long believed that Ocala and Marion County were worthy
of a REAL Real Estate Agency, one where the owner could be sure
that his holding was going to be offered -to the prospective purchaser
at just the price made by him and this price including a commission
to the broker and where the contemplating buyer could feel sure that
if the owner was offering a bargain that the broker had net got from
him a net price and then added what would equal several commissions
to that figure.
Both owners and intending purchasers and the reputation of any
town and county suffer from that bad practice.
We do not feel that we are more moral than most people but we
do believe that it is GOOD BUSINESS POLICY to have one method
of doing business and then sticking to it.
We have been working on Marion County land titles for the past
six years and have made many friends because they got what they
paid for and what we did for them was not gossiped to Tom, Dick and
Harry. In other words we have inspired confidence.
We are now going to add to our title work a real estate depart department
ment department and if you have a parcel of land or an improved farm and would
like to sell it we are going to be the medium thru which it can be done.
If you will list your land with us (we do not want an exclusive listing)
and will do it in the way we are going to have it done and will agree
to pay us an understood commission if we sell it, we can do business
To increase our facilities for selling we have made a contract
with the E. A. STROUT FARM AGENCY, Inc., to represent them in
Marion County. Just a word about who they are. They are the largest
agency, handling farm lands, in the World. That is saying a good
deal for even Uncle "Sam's country is a big one, but they say it and
can prove it.
There are many things of vital interest to you and to ourselves
that an advertisement does not have room for. Come to the office and
let's discuss those matters.
