Entered in the postofflce at Ocala,
Fla., as second class mail matter.
Next week !s the greatest week of
the year for Marlon county the week
of the fair.
It should be a week of entertain
ment and amusement; of social com
mingling; a bringing of the corners of
our great county together at their
common center: a meeting of old
friends and making of new; a com
parison of advantages; a suggestion
of better methods In short, a big fam
ily gathering of the people of the best
county of the best state of the best
country In the world.
While the fair is for us all. it Is first
of all for the farmers. There are the
most of them and they can make the
most of It. It depends mostly on them
as to whether it will be successful and
creditable. It would not be worth
while to give a fair if the farmers
didn't attend in large numbers, and
the fair will be very little but an im
itation of a department store and
succession of races if the farmers do
not bring the best of their fields and
stack them up for their neighbors and
the world at large to see. As usual
the Tolume of exhibits is an unknown
quantity until the fair has opened
Most of the old reliables will exhibit
but there cannot be too many new
ones. The Star urges that every far
mer and stock raiser bring as much
of his best products as possible. There
Is no use In holding back for fear of
crowding. There is plenty of room
there will be too much a-plenty unless
there are more exhibits than ever before.

How Ocala Can he Made a
Model City
Following is a copy of a paper read
by Mr. It. I,. Martin before the Mis
sissippi to Atlantic Waterway Asso
ciation at its convention at Albany,
Ga.. last month:
There are a number of cities in
this country, and in foreign countries,
situated at interior ioints, not very
far distant from navigable water, that
are in sore need of water transporta
tion to controol freight rates, but the
elevation of these cities is such' that
no apex water can be obtained.
Annually these cities pay freight in
excess of the water rate, amounting
to thousands of dollars.

New York, Xov. 20. A man and a
woman stood in a small room of a
Raines law hotel In the Bronx last
niaht and deliberately shot down three
detectives and two other men who
were trying to place the pair under
arrest. After nearly emptying the
eleven cartridges from a large auto
matic pistol, reinforced by shots from
a revolver m the hands of his woman
companion and probably fatally
wounding four of those whom she shot
down, the man shot and killed the wo
man and then put a bullet through his
own head, dying instantly.
The man was Joseph Vogel. a Pole
and an international crook. The wom
an is supposed to have been his wife.
The police had been on their trail for
several days before cornering them
with the foregoing fatal result.

Ills contributions to the republican
campaign funds were $25,000 In 1908,
and $10,000 in 1912.
A dispatch from Jacksonville, dated
a few days ago, says: "When G. W.
Oayle faced the local police judge this
morning charged with drunkenness,
Judge Swearlngen recognized in him
a man he had been owing seven dol
lars for the past several months.
"I owe you some money, said the
Judge. 'You are discharged. Come up
to my office and get the coin. Too
bad you were not arrested before, so
that we could have settled this ac
count.' "
The open attack upon the constitu
tionality of the sections of the recent
postal appropriation act requiring
newspapers to give postal authorities
access to their circulation records and
to publish a list of their stockholders
and bondholders, as well as to label
political articles' as advertisements,
was made Tuesday before the United
States supreme court in a printed brief
filed by Robert C. Morris and G. B.
Plante, on behalf of the Journal of
Commerce and Commercial Bulletin of
New York. The case is set for argu
ment orally on Dec. 3. This law isn't
worrying the Star any, but we don't
see why newspapers should be sub
ject to it any more than railroads,
hotels, banks, telephone and telegraph
The Jacksonville street car strike
was officially ended Tuesday, after
lasting three weeks. The men voted
to disband the union which had been
objected to. While they have lost
their strike, the men have at least
done a little good, in showing how
badly the streetcar company has ben
treating its employes and compelling it
to give them better usage In future. A
great deal of individual suffering for a
little general good is the way man
kind progresses.
Some of these headline artists are
careless. The Lakeland Telegram

one hasn't taken place yet.
Carml Thompson, secretary to Pres
ident Taft, will be appointed treasurer
of the United States within the next

resigned from the position last week.
McClung quit his job in a huff last
week because he couldn't harmonlxe
with Secretary of the Treasury Me-Veagh.
The charge of abduction again Jack
Johnson, the negro pugilist, has been
dismissed because of the prosecution's
Inability to prove that Lucile Cameron,
the white girl whose association with
Johnson led to his arrest, had been
abducted by him. Other suits are
pending against Jack, and his rose
strewn pathway of a few months ago
is now developing many ugly snags.

As her 77th birthday was drawing to
a close, without any warning, Mrs. L
E. Carney sank to the ground Monday
afternoon and was dead. She had been
on a visit to Mrs. J. F. Stafford, and
about 5 o'clock started home, accom
panied by her daughter, Mrs. G. A.
Carney. Out In the yard they stopped
to say a few words, and she died as
above stated.
"Grandma" Carney was born in
Xorth Carolina and since the death of
her husband a number of years ago
has made her home with her children.
A few years ago she was partially
paralyzed, from the effects of which
she never fully recovered, and it is
thought a return of the affliction was
the cause of her death. She was of a
bright and cheerful disposition and
soon won the love of all acquaint

funeral services Tuesday afternoon at

these cities, in many instances, to in
stall canals, and fetd same with op
erating water by pumps, or other arti
ficial means of elevating feed water.
In order to do this, the canal would
be constructed in the usual way, with
locks sufficient to elevate the vessels
to the city's level, and near the head
of the canal a reservoir be construct
ed for the purpose of storing the wa
ter pumped for feeding purposes.
From this storage reservoir, as
needed, the water could be turned
into the canal in order to keep the
water at the proper depth to carry
such vessels as might enter the canal.
There might be a dozen or more
locks in the canal to elevate vessels
to the level of the upper end of the
canal, still only one lock full of water
would be discharged each time a ves
sel passed through the canal.
In order to economize in the use
of feeding water, there might be a
haulover for boats of 50 feet and less
in length, thereby saving the loss of
any water on all of the smaller craft.
As a further means of supplying
feed-water, the storage reservoir could
be so constructed that the water from
rains falling on as large a territory
as possible would flow into the reser
voir, thus accumulating a large pro
portion of the feed-water.
As another means of keeping up
the supply of " water in the reservoir,
sewerage water from the city, after
passing through septic tanks, could be
turned into the storage reservoir.
Los Angeles, Cal., Merida, Yucatan,
Mexico and other large cities, as well
as many smaller cities, might use this
system with profit.
Ocala, not having natural apex wa
ter, a canal constructed from Silver
Springs to Ocala on this plan is what
we need, locating the storage reser
voir at the pond, near the ice plant.
We understand the elevation of this
pond is about 63 feet above tide wa
ter, and Silver Springs being 40 feet
above tide water, would necessitate
raising the water 23 feet.
The cost of, construction and in
stallation of tbis canal, including dig
ging of canal and reservoir, building
of necessary locks and adequate
pumping machinery, ready for traf
fic, would not exceed $200,000. The
freight saved in two years by the city
of Ocala would more than pay this
back, besides the many other advan
tages that would be derived. This
would solve the question of disposi
tion of our sewerage. The city own
ing the canal, sewerage plant and
water works, sewers could be flushed
every day and the water used to keep
up the water in the reservoir for
feeding the canal.
Ocala could, by the installation of
this system, be made the cleanest and
most healthy city in the United
States. II. L. MARTIN.
