(Associated Press)
Orlando, Nov. 4. This vicinity is
quiet after former service men pa
trolled the territory adjacent to the
scene of the rioting Tuesday night.
Two whites and six blacks were killed
during the rioting.
As a result of the electien day fight
at Ocoee, twelve miles west of Orlan
do, when July Perry, negro, carried a
shotgun to 'the polls and insisted he!
would vote regardless of the fact that
he had not paid a poll tax, followed by
the killing in cold blood of two white
young men by the same Perry, the sit
uation may be summarized as follows:
Leo Borgard of Winter Garden, and
Eimer McDaniels, of Ocoee,. soldiers.
in the world war, dead : Sam Salis
bury, Charles Beatty, Young Wilson,
Frank Robmson, John Haner and sev
eral other whites wounded; July Per
ry, negro, dead, an unknown number
of negroes killed at the scene of the
riot; twenty-five negro houses, two"
negro churches and a negro lodge de
stroyed by fire; Ocoee and the immed
iate, section of the scene patrolled by
armed white men and irf the woods
and swamps intermittent firing from
blacks at bay as they are being press
ed further into the woods by the en
circling whites. Comparative calm
prevails though the air is surcharged
vith the intensity of the drama.
As the .negro houses blazed Tues
day morning there was the incessant
crackling and popping of shells and
cartridges, and when the church was.;
mearit was statea mat me detona
tions resembled the explosions of
miniature ammunition dumps on a
battle front. "It is declared that be
tween 500 and 1000 rounds of ammu
nition exploded in the church and in
Perry's house where the congregated
and desperate blacks fought like de
mons, 2000 rounds of ammunition ex
ploded. Examinations of. the debris
of the destroyed negro bouses reveal
ed numerous ftre arms . of large and
small caliber.
A gruesome credation scene was ex
posed in all its f rightfulness as the
morning sun peeped over the smoke
laden field. One scene showed two
charred bodies of negroes who fought
to the last. One negro women is
known to have been killed. No 'chil
dren were victims. The situation is
in the hands of reliable citizens, ex
service men and home guards and no
further trouble is anticipated.
Despite the. fact that the automo
bile business is increasing month by
month, there yet remains the keenest
interest in the horse, perhaps not as
a beast of burden, but as an animal
of symmetry, intelligence and beauty.
And that is one of the reasons why
the Sparks circus which is to appear
in Ocala on Tuesday, Kov. 16th, car
ries with a horse fair equalled by no
other circus in the world.
"In the large tent adjoining the
menagerie, the horse fair forms a
daily adjunct to the trip into the "big
show."1 And so when the circus arrives
and ' you have paid your admission, do
not forget that feature of the circus,
for it is worth seeing. In the fair
this year will be found specimens of
the purest; bred Percfceroa possible to
obtain, as f well as representatives of
the thoroughbred, standard bred Suf
folk punch, coach horses, hackneys,
hunters and horses for. general pur
But in the maze of attractions, the
horse fair forms only cne of the feat
ures of the Sparks . circus. The
clowns? They always form an impor
tant part of any circus and that is
the case with this vast amusement
enterprise. Forty- of' them are pres
ent m the performance every minute
and their presence can result in only
one thing laughter and lots of it.
By .the way there sis to be the two
mile long parade at 10:30 o'clock the
morning of the circus arrival in the
city, with all cages open, tableaux
wagons and floats of wondrous, splen
dor, herds of elephants and camels
most-of them driven in harness, 200
lady riders -and cavaliers, all mounted
on beautifully .caparisoned, spirited
horses in splendid fettle. It .will be
worth coming many miles to see, so
don't miss it.

month, one service was rjeopened, five
were withdrawn, and, in addition, the
Red Cross ; placed 7 one nurse, paying

icy of the. Red Cross to do health
work where it is most needed, and,
where others are doing the same work,
not to compete with them, but to help
them as far, as possible.

of Instruction, engaged in promoting
health work." This bureau organized
fourteen classes in Home Hygiene and

Committee of Marion County Board
of Trade Changes Plan to
- Finance Organization
The .special memberships committee
of the Marion County Board of Trade,
it a meeting yesterday afternoon, de
cided upon a sliding scale of subscrip
tions for its proposed budget instead
of the plan to secure $100 each from
100 men and firms. It was found that
the business men favor a sliding scale
as being fairer to all. The "sum of
$10,000 is determined upon as the
minimum for the activities of the
Board of Trade for thef year.
Tomorrow or Friday a letter will be
sent to the business men and firms
advising them of the amount that the
committee expects them to subscribe
to the Board of Trade fund.. This will
give everydne air opportunity to give
careful consideration to .the matter.
Then, beginning Monday, the commit
tee will begin calling on the men and
business houses to ask for ' subscrip-
'tions, one-third cash and the balance
ON A BENDER! in the form of pledges for three, six
.fond nine" months.
The present yearly income of the
Board of Trade, only $3900, is entirely
inadequate. The headquarters,, or of
fice expenses, of the organization
must have at least $5000 yearly, and,
if there is to be any advertising, book
lets, conventions,; motor camp, band
concerts and the like an additional
sum must be raised. It is proposed
to raise it in one lump sum and to do
away with various drives and sub
scriptions, periodically during the year.
A budget will be made and a definite
program adopted by the Board of
Trade and its activities for the year
limited to this budget and program.
The, budget and program will be
adopted at a meeting of the Board of
Trade to be held for the purpose. -
