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.

passed away very gently, and was
conscious till a lew minutes before
death. He talked quite freely
with Rev. J. P. Hilburn, who was
with him when he died.
