A MONUMENT FOR OUR HEROES
In one of the magazines of the
month I saw a picture of a very beau beautiful
tiful beautiful monument which had been plan planned
ned planned in a northern city for the soldiers
who went to the world war out of that
city and it has occurred 'to me that it
would be a very handsome thing for
Ocala and Marion county to erect a
similar token of appreciation on the
court house square. I would suggest
that it take something like this
Let there be erected at the north
west corner of the square, facing the
corner of the square, four marble, 01
steel columns, eight inches square and
ten feet high, crowned with a similar
plate with cross beams, making a per
gola effect.1 Let there be placed be-J
tween the two columns on each end a
solid marble slab, thre inches thick
and six or eight feet high or lattice
work, and between the two columns
in the center let there be a bronze
plate sufficiently large to bear in bas
relief the name of every man who
went into' the service from Marion
county, which plate should bear ap appropriate
propriate appropriate ornamentation. It would
make a serviceable as well as orna ornamental
mental ornamental work, if a marble seat were
built into either end of the monument,
and in front of the memorial tablet a
drinking fountain were erected, and
all; the triangular space between the
monument and the pavement were
concreted. At either end of the mon
ument might be planted a running
rose and this could be trained over
the pergola. I have no idea what the
cost of such -a monument would be,
but it ought not to be prohibitive. The
city is graced with a very attractive
monument to the Confederate soldier,
and it ought to have some sort of per
petual recognition of the services of
the men who in this war ventured
into the jaws of death for us, some of
whom laid down their lives on our be
In traveling in Great Britain some
years ago I was struck with the num
ber of monuments and memorial tab tablets
lets tablets which had been erected to the
men who had built the Empire. And
inasmuch as the war that has just
closed has been in -every respect the
greatest war ever fought we ought
not to be slow or meager in dendering
to those who made victory possible
the full mead of honor that is due

umns of the Star as to the feasibility
of such an enterprise and the nature
