A great deal of phosphate history is
connected with the Whithlacoochee
country. It was here that the phos

led to the greater discovery of phos

It is a rich, beautiful and wonderful
land and will add many a leaf to the
wreath which is destined to crown our
state in horticultural, commercial and
mineral wealth.
The lands are watered by the Withla
coochee river, which give easy commun
ication, and wild orange groves line the
shore. These trees, or the most of them,
have long since been budded with sweet
sprigs and for many years have been
bearing the famous “Eichelberger kid
glove,” that has given that section a rep?
utation for the production of line
oranges, which is unapproached by any
other section of the state.
But were there no phosphate, were
there no gypsum, were thsre no humus,
were there no marl on tb)* .property, its
orange industry alone, according to the
value put upon orange grove property by
tbe late sales at Citra, would be worth
the capitalized value of tbe company.
But tbe deposits of phosphates are ex
tensive, and out of tne first pit, upon
which work has scarcely begun, a thous
and tons have already been extracted,
and phosphate experts think that it will
not be exhausted for many years yet to
come. There are ten separate and dis
tinct deposits on the property, some of
h show a larger area than the first
et and upon which work is being
prosecuted. *>.
The gypsum deposits have merely
been pitted, and while its importance
tor the time being has been overshad
owed by the discovery of phosphate, Mr.
Eichelberger thinks that in time it will
become as valuable, and the deposits on
the property of the company are almost
as extensive as the deposits of phos

State that Prof. Shepphard, an eminent
chemist, says that the ammonia alone,

its value may be approximated.
Soon the South Florida railroad will
tap this property with one of its numer
ous spurs which will augment its value
and carry its stock beyond par.

Agnew's old Gin Honse in a Heap
of Ashes, bat was Occupied as a
Warehouse by the Ocala Furnt
turniture Cos., Who Loses SS.OOO.
This Thursday morning, March 12th,
at about 4 o’clock, three colored youths
raised the alarm of fire in front of the
Ocala Furniture Company’s warehouse,
known as the Agnew gin house, which
alarm awoke Johnnie Siler, the reputed
“imp” of the Banner office, who quicklv
notitied Captain Wasson and he turned
on the alarm.
Although the fire companies respon
ded promptly in the order nained.No. 1,
2 and 3, including Hook and Ladder,
colored, the ilatnes were so advanced
and the material so infiamable that it
was impossible to stay its ravages and all
that could bo done was done to protect
neighboring property.
Henry Allred and Will Kincaid were
sleeping in the building and barely
escaped with their lives, losing their
personal effects, among them a very fine
gold watch, of Mr. Allred.
Mr. Watson, the mattress maker, w ho
was absent in the country, but slept in
the building when at work, lost all his
personal effects.
Mr. T. J. Misselwhite, who \ra? em
ployed in the building, and had ali of
his household effects stored, lost them to
the value of $250. x
We understand one or two other
parties had furniture stored there which
of course was lost.
The fire is said to have originated
under and near the center of the build
ing and was evidently the work of an
in -endiary.
The stock of furniture ranged between
four to five thousand dollars, while the
insurance on same is between two aud
three thousand dollars.
Ten minutes after the alarm was
sounded, No. 1 was at the fire.
Commodore Bird made a lucky escape
by going to housekeeping and removing
his stored furniture.
The same good luck befel E. C. Connor,
of the Buffman Loan A Trust Company,
who made a timely removal of his
household effects.
The building was built some twenty
years ago by the Agnews, who for many
years, in the days when long staple was
a power in the land, used it for ginning
thestaplecropof Marion county—cotton.
During the reign of Editor F. E.
Harris as mayor of Ocala, six years ago,
an attempt was made to fire the build
ing in three different places and with
great care as to details, but the fire iu its
incipiency was discovered by Mr. Brant
ley A. Weathers and extinguished. On
two other occasions was it the invidious
work of the fire bug.
While the loss of the Ocala Furniture
Cos., is heavy, yet the loss will not in the
least effect their business as new stock
has been ordered and ali orders' for
goods in their line will be promptly
Dr. R. R. Snownen and Ball Snowden
are tbe principal sufferers by the fiames.
There were some things somewhat
curious about this fire. Heretofore our
fire’s have occurred on Sunday morn
ing's, precicely at 3 o’clock. This one
broke the record and occurred on a week
day morning at about 4 o’clock. The
fire fiend got in his work all right, but,
as Judge Marshall says, got his calendar
somewhat mixed.
The night was peculiarly favorable for
the safety of “rotten row.” The fire oc
curred j list after a heavy rain, the roofs
were old and soggy and each shingle con
tained about a quart of water, by actual
measure. The “fire laddies” made hero
ic efforts across the street, to prevent the
Hick, Weaver and Lloyd buildings from
catching, but the forked tlaraes refused
to take undue advantage of the situation
and “rotten row” remains with us.
The question that was uppermost aud
oftenest asked was: “Will the Phosphate
Field wear crape or bunting, shed tears
or come out with a double leaded leader?
It is estimated that 2,000 persons lined
Exposition street before tbe fire was fi
nally extinguished.
The Banner Always Prefers Facts.
The article that appeared some time
ago in the Banner about Messrs. Mead
apd Cutter's hot house cucumbers and
recieved for same and the suc
cess stranding their raising of poultry,
was doubted by the DeLand Agricultu
rist, who wrote to Mr. A. Mead and said
the only mistake the Banner made was
that it forgot to deduct freight and com
mission which, on the four crates, was
sl4 52, leaving a net balance of $10548.
Mr. Painter, the editor of the Agricul
turist, was so pleased with the confirma
tion the report that he not only
prints Mr. Meads' letter, which gives
valuable hints about growing hot-house
“cukes,” but reproduces the Banner’s
aiticle on poultry and cucumbers.
The Banner alway prefers facts to fig
ures of the imagination, except on off
days and off-occasions, in which the
cuke story was not one of the excep

To the Town Authorities.
I, as a citizen, have due respect for all
your city laws, but you will pardon me
formating a suggestion. One of your
laws prohibits stock running at large in
the corporate limits of Ocala. Now,
this may he right, but when you agree
to pay any person 25 cents for" each ani
mal driven to the pound, it is an induce
ment for every unscrupulous vagrant to
go out far from the suburbs and drive
cattle in, which, as many know, is fre
quently done.
I suggest that you employ an honest
man to guard the town, and let him
alone impound all stock found within
the corporation.
A Citizen:
“Away ! A way! There la danger here !
A terrible phantom Is bending near;
With no human look, with no human breath,
lie stands beside thee—the haunter—Death!”
If there is one disease more than an
other that comes like the unbidden guest
at a banquet, it is Catarrh. Insidiously it
steals upon you. “with no human breath”
it gradually, like the octopus, winds its
coils about you and crushes you. But
there is a medicine, called Dr. Sage’s Ca
tarrh Remedy, that can tear you away
from the monster Rnd turn the scythest
point of the reaper. The makers of this
wonderful remedy offer, in good faith, a
standing reward of SSOO for all incurable
cases of Catarrh in the Head.
Mr. S. E. Rowe, ot Silver Springs Park,
and deputy United States marshal, who
returned from his raid on illicit stills in
West Florida, was in town Saturday,
having returned Captain E. B. Richard
sen’s horses which Mr. R. had hired for
the work and without which he and his
assistants could not have done the af
fective work they did. The summary of
the work is as follows: Destruction of
23 stills, 5 of which were demolished by
the operators before the deputy and his
men got to thom;22 prisoners,of whom 9
are now in Eseonbia county jail and 3 in
prjson in Alabama. One hundred and
thirty seven gallons of spirits were found
in one still and in the others were capt
ured five gallons and upwards. The
raid was a very successful one and tor a
time at least distilled eano iuice will be
a scarce commodity in West Florida.
Charley Ball was one of Deputy Rowe’s
Messrs. Dr. Emile Van Espen and Dr.
Victor La Fosse, accompanied by a
friend, came up from Grabamville Sat
urday aud paid their respects to the
Banner by subscribing for same and as
suring the reporter they intended to
test the growing of tobacco in that sec
tion. Dr. Emile Van Espen made a
venture last season and with such satis
factory results, that he will try five
acres this year. The doctor is quite re
cently trom Brussels, Belgium, where he
spent last summer and during his stay
acted as immigration agent and brought
over four of his friends, of whom Dr.
Vidor La Fosse is of the number, who
will practice bis profession in tbe Gra
bamville district. Dr. Victor La Fosse
is a young man of fine acquirements in
his profession and we trust he will meet
with great success, and the samo wishes
are tendered the oilier friends of Dr.
Emile Van Espen by the Banner, with
a hearty welcome to their new home.
