What the Star overlooks is that in
telligent leadership can hardly make
way against a solid and unlawful ma
jority of votes in the legislature or
anywhere else. North Florida, and
in that section may be included Mar
ion county, has a majority of votes in
both houses of the legislature. That
vote is almost invariably cast against
South Florida when the interests of
the two sections of the state seem to
conflict. Miami Herald.
What the Herald overlooks is that
Marion has generally sympathized
with and worked with South Florida,
and the only difference it has with
South Florida now is with that small
proportion of South Florida citizens
who are trying to split the state. We
have known an active minority and
an intelligent leadership to do great
things in Congress, and South Flor
ida might try it, just for once, in the
legislature. If it did, it would prob
ably find the senator and representa
tives from Marion and Sumter coun
ties with it. The editor of the Herald
is a wise boy when it comes to writing
about national and international af
fairs, but when it comes to Florida,
judging by his writings, he doesn't

seems to have something of "the peo
ple be damned" spirit. Listen to this
relative to the proposed reapportion
ment amendment: "South Florida
papers may fight the amendment if
they wish, they are only cutting off
their nose to spite their face. The
amendment is offered. It is either to
take it or leave it as they wish. The
old system doesn't hurt West Flor
ida." South Florida people can af
ford to let it alone and test out the
question as to whether the people of
Florida or a bunch of north and west
Florida politicians shall rule the state
in coming years. The constitution
provides for a reapportionment that
means something if senators and rep
resentatives will live up to their oath
of office. Winter Haven Chief.
We don't think it shows a "people
be damned" spirit; it rather shows the
spirit that some South Florida papers
have been trying to goad the people
of West Florida into for the last
three months.
Leadership and pledges imposed
upon members of the legislature from
South Florida can accomplish little
against the solid front presented by
those counties, like Marion, which has
two representatives and is coupled
with Sumter in forming a senatorial
district, while Dade county, with more
population and greater wealth, has
only one representative and is coupled
with four other counties in a sena
torial district, which stubbornly re
fuse to follow out the law that was
designed to secure an equitable rep
resentation for all the state. Miami
The Herald doesn't know what it is
talking about. Marion county and the
twentieth district have never opposed
reapportionment; all our senators and
representatives that we can recall
have been in favor of it. It is now
the Herald that is stubbornly fighting
a measure which would give it a sen
ator and two representatives.
We have always considered the
Ocala Fire Department a good friend,
but the other night it was two good
friends. Our luxurious apartments
are right across the hall from our
editorial sanctum, and it is our cus
tom every evening, before starting on
our regular stunt of writing coupla
bo any less savage than our own mer
ciless slaughter of the innocent? We
kill twenty-five thousand a year and
cripple a hundred thousand as an of
fering to our deity of pleasure for it
is not the business car operated in a
business way, as a rule, that kills.
Laws are ineffective. Even if we
had the most stringent laws, enforced
ir. the most stringent manner, a fool
o.- a drunk man at the wheel and lives
would be put in jeopardy. Some me
chanical means of making it impos
sible to speed is required. A device
attached to every motor which would
prevent its operation at a high speed
might meet the case. If that is im
practicable, the highways themselves
could easily be so surfaced as to make
speeding impracticable. Slight undu
lations in the surface, which would
hardly be noticed by a car running
ten miles an hour, would make riding
in one going twenty-five miles an hour
a species of torture which even the
most callous speed hog would refuse
to endure.
Of the two methods, which prob
ably embrace the whole catalogue of
reliable remedies, the latter is to be
preferred, because it can be made ef
fective in a local way without the co
operation of car makers. Every vil
lage in the state of Florida could pro
tect itself from most of the automo
bile peril just by fixing its streets so
they could not be speeded over.
It is about time the public awoke to
the magnitude of this sacrifice and
took steps to put an end to it. Lake
land Advertiser.
We don't know how the Advertiser's
first proposition would work, but we
can assure it that its second won't.
About ten years ago Ocala had laid a
nice, smooth brick street the pioneer
of brick streets in the city. And ev
erybody who had a car chased that
car over it. About two years later,
the street had to be torn up to put in
sewer pipes. In replacing the bricks,
a series of "slight undulations," such
as the Advertiser speaks of only
more so was created. And there isn't
a night passes but what from fifty
to two hundred and fifty cars gallop
over that street at forty miles an
hour or more. Everything from a cut
down Ford to a twelve-cylinder crack

To All the Members and Friends of
Grace Church, Greeting:
My dear Friends: I am looking
forward with hope and pleasure to
next Sunday, Oct. 8th, when I expect
to again take up my duties as rector
of the parish.
It is more than three months since
I went .away, and that is longer than
I ever expected to be away from you
while rector. I can assure you that
my vacation was prolonged by neces
sity, not from my own choice; for it
was only a short time after my return
from the north that I found myself a
patient in the hospital, where I stayed
three weeks. And here may I not re
cord my sense of the great worth of
that institution. We may well be
proud of our hospital. With gratitude
I gladly wish "Blessings of Marion
County Hospital." Very long may she
continue her fine, noble work, and
It will be a great joy for me to of
ficiate again .in our beautiful little
parish church. I invite you all to
meet me there next Sunday morning.
I especially request all who desire to
make their communion to attend the
7:30 a. m. celebration.
We will have morning prayer and
sermon at 11 o'clock, so that I can
have assistance at the later service.
I want to see all my boys and girls
and their teachers at Sunday school.
No evening service for the present.
O come, let us sing unto the Lord.
Very affectionately your rector,
John J. Neighbour.
G. D. Pasteur, of Anthony, has been elected
Vice-President and General Manager, suc
ceeding W. P. Preer, whose retirement from
the management of the business was made
necessary by ill health. Under our new
management the stock will be increased to
meet the requirements of improving condi
tions in Marion County. Mr. Pasteur will be
glad to meet his former friends and to make
new ones in his new location. He promises
the best service it is possible to give the public.

Ocala, Florida,
next day's paper, to enter our said
apartments and refresh our large but
somewhat wearied mind with a brief
nap. Arising irom one of said naps,
the other evening, we thought we
heard some one knocking out in the
hall, and went to the door and peeped
out. No one was present, but as we
stuck our head out we heard, or
thought we heard, the phone bell in
the office ring. Thinking possibly it
was some friend who had called us to
let us know his bootlegger had come
by, we galloped across the hall and
grabbed the instrument, but no an
swer came to our wistful "hello" and
we hung up quick to avoid making ex
tra work for Central. We started to
return to our apartments when there
was a slam, and the door, propelled
by a light gust of wind, shut. Now,
this would not have bothered us any,
but it was a warm evening, and be
fore lying down for a nap we had re
moved our outer clothes, and our
pants and our keys in one of their
pockets, were on the other side of
that door. So there we were, dressed
"very informally," as the society
writers say, and the formal part of
our clothing shut off from us by a
very efficient spring lock. We re
turned to our sanctum, shut the door,
turned off the lights and sat down to
think. There was only two keys to
that door and the other was three
thousand miles away on the Pacific
coast. It is true that we could have
reentered the room by climbing out
of one window and climbing into an
other, but the front of the building
was well lighted' and well, maybe
you hadn't suspected it, but we are
modest. Just then we thought of a
