Price Five Cents PUBLISHED EVERY DAV IN ' THE ' WEEK EXCEPTING SUNDAY. :V ; V ' r I . '.I . . SUNDAY'S LECTURES. Additional Locals. some 01 tne ( A. 1 ( Eloquent, Forceful, Scriptural and Profound. The lecture by Hon. Lou J. Beaucbamp Saturday night was in the same happy vein as the others of the series full of humor and pathos, and bringing laughter and tears as the lecturer touched the different chords of feeling in his hearers. The sermons in the morning and evening, and the lec ture in the afternoon, were well attended, by interested audiences. The sermon at the Methodist church last night had for a text the first eight verses of the book of Esther, which described a mag nificent Oriental feast in ancient Persia, where 'the drinking was according to the law." The appli cation of this text was forcible and eloquent. Mr. Beauchamp has the rare faculty of delving into the Bible and finding spiritual les sons in the most prosaic of its his torical records. The impression on the audience was profound, and we have no doubt that the results of these lectures will be seen for years to (jorae in the advancement of the cause of individual temper ance and a more rigid curtailment, if not absolute prohibition, of the liquor traffic in Ocala. Tonight Mr. Beauchamp will give one of his popular lectures. Admission, 25 cents; children, 10 cents. We recommend all to come out and hear this prince of orators in tlm, the last lecture of the series. DIED. Hon. Hugh E.
