One of the fire boys was playing with George, the big horse belong ing to the Protective Hose compa ny, this morning in front of the press room of the Witness build ing, as the editor sat cudgeling his brain for something to write. He would follow his trainer wherever he went, turning short around upon being called by name, running or walking as his conductor set the pace. It is wonderful to see what perfect control these horses are under as gentle and affectionate as kittens when in -repose, but when the alarm is turned in, al though crazy to be off, they never forget what to do. Our fire de partment is something of which we are justly proud, and we hope to see the boys come off victorious in the world's contest at Atlanta. They train regularly every Monday and Friday nights, and are begin ning to show good results from it. F. E. Bugbee, the mammoth fur niture dealer, returned yesterday from a short stay at Palm Beach, and said to. a Star reporter today that everything was booming down there.

Mr. Bugbee said that Mr. Flagler had pur- chased Virginia Key, a beautiful island lying off from Lake Worth, and was going to erect the largest hotel yet built in Florida upon his new domain.

Little returned Saturday night from his trip to Chattanooga, where he was sent as delegate to the Epworth league conference. fc c , , . by re quest of the church and league Mr. Little addressed the latter at the M. E. Church last night and highly entertained all present with a vivid and glowing description of the great gathering. He said the largest audience they had was full 15,000 souls. Mr. Little said he heard the grandest music and speeches of his life while in this meeting. The choir consisted of 700 voices. Brother Little is one of the best talkers in Ocala and will die a rousing Methodist praacher yet. On the Other Shore. We see a boatman waiting stand, With hand upon the oar, All ready fur the Master's word To launch us from this shore. Before is Jordan's swelling flood, Its valley shadowed o'er, . And faith alone can now discern V hat's on the other shore. A reassuring voice we hear. From o'er th giuesome tide, That tells of glorious mansions there Upon the other side. "A stream of life forever flows, As clear as crstal bright, And o'er its vale no shadow falls, For there shall be no night. The tree of life on either side And in its midst does stand. Whose fruit is reaped bv all whose home Is in that blissful land. There ye shall see the Father's face, And reign forevermore, Bear on your brows his sacred name. Upon the other shore. No tear of grief shall ever fall, For all are wiped away, No pain or death shall e'er be there," We hear the Master say. ''And ye shall meet in that blest land, Your loved ones gone before, And join in the hallelujah choir Upon that other shore." E. M. Lake Helen, Fla. MAN'S DEPRAVITY. The doctrine of the total deprav ity of man is set forth significantly in both the Old and New Testa ments. In Romans 3:10, in re viewing the past conduct of man, the apostle Paul says that "there is none righteous, no not one." Many generations before Paul his ances tor, the greatest of all lyric writers, said in Psalm 58 : 3, "The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies." If possible, this is a stronger setting forth of the truth than that by the inspired poet-prophet. Following him is the greatest 01, all epigramatistsJ saying in Ecclesiastes 9 : 3, "The rieart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live." Surely no man ever struggled with innate evil more strongly, if not so success fully, as did the writer of the above, and through it all he was conscioi s of that law in his nature, spoken ot afterwards by Paul, which pulled him down when he knew it to be to his highest interest to soar above himself. And the weeping prophet, Jeremiah, was quite as astute a student of the human nature. He says, in Jeremiah 17 : 9, "The heart is desperately wicked." And, reverting again to the New Testament, we find the most awful of all figures in the expression, in Ephesians 2:1, "dead in trespasses and sins." What a capstone! These are not pessimistic views. They are real. They are lights to show us the rocks. May we heed them. Trie marvelous telautograph was used with success in sending out the press reports of the recent Re publican league convention at Cleveland. All that is needed is to sit down at the instrument, take a pencil of the telautograph in your hand, and write just vthe same as though you were writing a letter, and the matter will.be reproduced j I V uincruCII.u 01 Lnc ;VI'- ine:wua' telautograph is one of the most wonderful inventions in connection I with that modern wonder-worker,! : . .-I . . 4. 1 . 3 r il ! t-i ' .. electricity.
