This we know is going to be a good fair, because the people of the eastern side of Levy are among the most progressive in the State, and have a fine area of country to draw on. .

They - are, asking no bonus ' or reward but. do want to be recogniz ed as having done their bit. St. Pe tersburg Independent. There are about forty members of the' home guard in Ocala, all of Whom were too old or too young or otherwise disqualified from going into the army. But they were pretty. well drilled, had good guns and, ammunition, and could have .rendered effectual seryice in any local trouble.. ' A very smalt proportion of the peo ple -of .Florida' are . aware of the clumsy and unjust method of paying our; state officials, viz: the governoi and members of the cabinet, supreme court justices, circuit .court judges , and state attorneys. These officials 'r are paid .'only once in three months, while' all, other people, in the employ of the, state are paid monthly. The TOWN PESTS t VWV A<t Ait The Shiftless Goop never Cuts the .Grass in-his Yard, never Clears the Ashes or Cans from his Alley, never Paints his House, never gives his Wfe or Kids any Attention and Looks ,like a TrJiip himself. Were we all Shiftless fioops, the Old Town would .not Look So Good. 1L system of paying the higher officials was a disgrace to the men who built the constitution thirty-six years ago it is much worse now. We hope the people will." vote solidly for the amendment; changing this ridiculous clause in our constitution so as to al low the officials ytffected to be paid in a 'just and business like manner, i. e., once a month. This amendment will not do anybody any harm, and will be not only justice "to the officials, but Will be 'more business-like for the state. -Watch out for that amend ment and mark an X before the "Yes." A WAIL OF WOE ' Every state institution excepting the girls' home, at Ocala (a. small af fair) i s in western or : middle r Flor ida. The boys reform school is in Jacksonville. The insane asylum is in Gadsden county. The - state capitol stands in Leon county The Woman's College is 'in Leon jxmnty. - The negro agricultura!college is in Leon county. The State University is in Alachua county. The state institution for feeble minded persons is in Alachua county. The institution for the deaf and, the blind is jn St. Johns county. Miami Central News. Dear News: The. boys' reform school, the insane asylum , and ..the state institution for feeble-minded persons are not desirable possessions for any town. Speaking for, ourself , we are, glad none of them are" located near Ocala. The state university is located very nearly . in the center of Florida. It is easier to reach from Miami than from1 Pensacola. Ocala makes no kick on tjie university being in Gainesville; so why should other cities, so much further from the mid dle of the state. So far as. we can re member,, no" South -' Florida town fought Gainesville for the university when it was located there. , True, Tal lahassee is the" capitalTbut that isn't even the fault of Tallahassee. The federal governmenf located' it there more than three-quarters of a century ago, and developments of the last year show that South Florida is too jealous of Central Florida to allow it" to be moved where it would be equally accessible to all the" 'state.. Being the capital, we ": suppose Tallahassee is reasonably entitled to one institution. She ha the nicest of the ' lot the Woman's College. This may be par-' tiality,bul we never saw a girl who rwent to the college who didnfc come home in love with Tallahassee. One treason why the negro-eoHego was ioc eated at Tallahassee was because no town in the "state made an effort for it. Do you folks at Miami want to move it to your town? - And it seems; to us you have overlooked a - point. Why didn't you complain because the state prison farm was located in Brad ford? v ; "Ocala made no effort for the girls' industrial sehool. The school was lo cated where it is more because it was oil a high and healthy piece of ground at a convenient distance ' from the city than for any t&er reason. The school has turned out well und'Maxv ion county has made it to home, but more because it is a good institution than because it is a state institution. DEMOCRATIC DOLLARS Friends, Ocalans, Countrymen!

Bruce Mfeffert, democratic nominee for commissioner or the first district of Marion county deserves re-election, not only because lie is the candidate of the party but because he is a much better, business' man than his opponent and far , better t acquainted with the needs .of the - county., Mr. Meffert was appointed to the office of commission er not only without his solicitation but .without his knowledge. He was unwilling to accept the appointment, anil took it only because his friends, among them many devoted to the best interests of the county, urged him. In the first primary after his appoint ment he did not announce leaving the race open for all others. An other good democrat' opposed him ii the general election, but Mr. Meffert won by an t overwhelming" majority. In the recent primary campaign, he announced himself a candidate, and as, no one appeared against him he Was declared the nominee, tho,' In ac cord with the rules, his name was not on.. the ticket. Mr. Meffert, altho he nas pressing ousmess oi ms own, gives more of his time to the county than a couple of thousand dollars a year, would pay him for. He jour neys at his Own expense all over the county, acquainting himself at first hand with public needs.
