Condrey, who have recently moved from Ocala to Inverness, will sympathize with them in the death Rf their youngest child, John, who died in Ocala last night. The little boy was taken ill Saturday night at his home in Inverness and he was brought to Ocala as an operation was necessary. He was operated on yes terday and apparently was doing nicely when in the afternoon his con dition became critical and he passed away about one o'clock this morning, Little John was a bright, cheerful little fellow and his loss will be deeply mourned by his little friends and playmates.

Boy, howdy! Did you see those Wildcats wallop the DeLand boys Saturday afternoon? Well it was seme game. The people of Ocala thought these Wildcats didn't have any pep but, listen to me, they are the hot stuff. They are tabasco sauce flavored with essence of ginger. Some few thought that the Wildcats were yellow but there's no yellow down their backs. Now the subject of be ing yellow has already been argued out in Ocala so don't try to start any thing along that line. Just take it from one who saw the game Saturday between the Wildcats and DeLand that there is not even the faintest tint of yellow in Ocala's team. The boys had the stuff and they put every ounce of their souls and bodies into the game. DeLand had a good team and they fought like young tigers at tunes. They had. their backs to the wall several times and they held like brick walls but they depended too much on their star player. Without a doubt Tatum is a star. He played a wonderful game for the visitors but he could not be eleven men at the rame time His team tried to work him too much. He is a big man and was hard to stop but the Wildcats . . , stopped him time after time.

That line was an animated rick wall but its animation never called for a step backwards. It was forward march from the start to the finish. Every man on the line played jam-up game. They held when it was time to hold and tney went tnru when it was time to advance. High above the general altitude of the line's work soared that of George Leak. That boy was in the game head and b..iy His mighty beef was invincible and he had his eye on the ball. He covered three fumbles before the play was off and was in tackle after ackle. Steve, the all-state center, ras right under Leak all the time. He was the assistant star of the day )ut then there are those powerful guards, the Troxler twins to consider. As a rule John outplays Lindsay by a few points but it seems to us that indsay was the better of the two Saturday. Lindsay blocked punts, broke through the line and tackled before the play was off time after time. John downed the big Tatum boy time after time until Tatum thought John was bigger than he was Lummus was solid as an oak tree. When DeLand tried to run a play over him it stopped with a grunt like a Ford car when it hits a stump. Joe Moses played end and to use his own language he redeemed him self foi all past errors. He recovered a fumble in the first quarter and car ried the ball over for a touch down. Jos also gained 20 yards on an end run. Borland played his nsual good game on the other end. He made no less than six tackles that were sensa tional and on one occasion downed Tatum in spite of the fact that Tatum used his stiff arm to advantage on .;ms nose. Jimmie grabbed tne oio stiff aim and pulled Tatum to the ground. Now s there anything good left that can be said for the back field? There has to be. If the good words have run out we will have to coin some more. How would super mellowgorgeous describe their work? Daniels ran the team at quarter in a manner that was satisfactory to the entire side lines and that is hard to do. In addition to this head work Bebe pulled off a few little plays him self that were good. He received a j forward pass for a 40 yard gain and slipped through Steve's legs for sever al needed gains. Bebe made the first touch down of the game in the first seven minutes of the play. Ferguson hit the line like a pile driver and made gain after gain. Ferg's work on the defense was fine too. He made tackle after tackle that were hard to get. Lewis made sensational end, runs on one of which he took a flying head first leap into the air to avoid two DeLand tackles. His leap netted him an additional five yards but it took what the boys call nerve to hit the ground head first like he did. Parks was back in the game Sat urday. The boy is the best punter we have seen in this neck of the woods. He makes good on end runs Santiago, Chile, Nov. 13. (By the Associated Press). Relief forces to aid the thousands made homeless by earthquakes throughout Chile Satur day morning are being mobilized to day. The death toll will probably be at lease 1000 and the property loss will run into the millions as several towns were almost entirely wiped out an dthere was heavy damage to buildings and communication 3ines, and particularly ships along the 1400 miles of coast affected by the huge tidal waves. Gradual opening of the telegraph 1 ir.es is bringing additional details of the catastrophe centering in Atacama province. Th inland town of Valle nar is in ruins with 360 dead and 600 injured. There are 100 dead at Co- quimbo. OKLAWAHA AVENUE IS OPEN TO TRAFFIC The last brick was laid on Oklawa- ha avenue Saturday afternoon and that important street is now open to traffic. Thru somebody's oversight, two manholes to the sewers were covered and the pavement had to be dug up to reopen them, but that fault will soon be mended. The pavement at the eastern end of the avenue is somewhat rumpled, enough to make it uncomfortable to ride over in a light car. Otherwise the street is well laid and as soon as the sidewalks are put in shape it will be a handsome and comfortable avenue. At the very least, it is a vast improvement. There was something like a strike toward the end of this work. Mr. J E. Brennan, the foreman, who has been overseeing the work, brought in a large crew of men, rather too large for the work, after the first few weeks, and at the request of the city manager sent a third of them away. A few days ago, the work narrowing down toward a finish and the men be ing so numerous that they were in each other's way, the city manager directed that another twenty men be dismissed. This Mr. Brennan refused to do and Thursday evening, while the city manager was in Jacksonville, took his force off the work. Mr. Brumby had been halfway expecting this, so had made arrangements with Mr. S. B. Brinson, who with nineteen workers, all Ocala men, was promptly on the job Friday morning and by Saturday evening finished the street. Just what can be done by a good live bunch of enthusiastic citizens on short notice, when said 1. b. is so for tunate as to inhabit a progressive community in an exceptionally pro ductive agricultural county, was shown last week by the people of the eastern part of Levy county when they pull ed off the East Side Levy County Community Fair at Williston. The idea of holding this fair was conceived less than two months before it had completed its existence, and it remained for the Williston Chamber of Commerce to put it over. . The agricultural exhibit, while con fined to a very limited territory in its make-up, was a splendid one. The displays consisted of quantities of farm products, such as hay, grain, peanuts, cane, corn, potatoes and in fact a bo it everything that can be grown on a larm. The poultry exhibit would have done credit to any county fair, with its many fancy breeds shown. There were also pens of fancy bred dogs.
