A WELL TRAINED HORSE.
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.

been completed, and a large force
is at work rapidly pushing it for
ward to completion. 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

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.
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
