The works were full of interest and
instruction and demonstrated that pro
tection, even against the most insinuat
ing and stealthy of invading foes, could
be checked and successfully held at bay
through the aid of science and the in
ventive genius of man.
What almost caused an emute among
the four hundred educators of the State,
was to fiad after they had been quaran
tined, Commodore Plant, who was on
the excursion steamer Margerat, in
duced the captain to take bias to aee
Commodore Walker, of the White
Squadron, and not only disappoint them,
but compelled them to remain in quar
antine natil 5 o'clock, when they had
been promised to be returned to Tampa
by six, so that they could take the eve
ning trains home.
Result, they did not get home nntii 10
o’clock and via Port Tampa, and in no
very amiable state of mind, if they were
willing to admit that Commodore Plant
had built the handsomest hotel in the
State, but one; had created the iargeat
fleet of merchant vessel* that sail the
Southern waters and opened up a trade
with the South American countries,
whose future promised the greatest re
turns ever whispered to the United
States, and whose commerce would
make of Tampa the futnre great gulf
port city of this continent.
In our journeying to Bartow from
Tampa, we passed through Plant City,
where Bro. Merrian is doing good work
inpublishing the South Florida Courier.
Thirty miles from the ‘ City-by the
Gulf,” we came within the pleasant en
vironments of Lakeland, wtioee hiatory
is remarkable from ,tbe fact that flve
years ago, in the hurrah and,abandon of
newly developed towns in South Flor
ida, land changed hands at $1,000 an
acre and deeds conldn’t be written fast
enough to accommodate the eager spirits
of the investors.
That place has changed—-attorneys
and notary’s public’s services are not so
excitedly sought tor nowadays for simi
lar advice and work.
Things work slower, because vaulting
ambition and greed for hasty wealth
has overlapsed itself, and the fickel
jade, "fortune” having ontwinded itself,
is taking things very moderately and ac
commodating itself to the hum drum
affairs of ordinary mortals, and so
“things” are catching up.
The town of 700 persons is beautifully
located and surrounded with shining
lakes and rich foliaged orange trees.
That Lakeland is slowly and surely
recovering from the deep depression of
over land trading of past years, is evi
denced from the fact that this season,
within a radius of four miles of the
town, over 1,000 acres of new groves
have been planted. This is certainly a
healthy and inspiring work. L ! ke all
progressive Florida towns, it has a
good newspaper, the Advocate, another
evidence of municipial solidity and
prosperity, and to be fully abreast of the
moving procession of growth and suc
cess, we need but name the fait that a
gentleman, a limb of the law, Mr.
Briggs, who has light in his eye and
deals in briefs, wifi also handle elec
tricity by the Jacobi’s Candle power
aud make every denizeu of the burg see
that it is to bis interest to advertise
their town with the electric lights.
In passing we must not forget to state
that we met at Lakeland, Rev. Mr.
Thompson, a Presbyterian preacher, for

is serving those people very acceptably
in a ministerial way,

this energetic, progressive and worthy
citizen ot Marion county only remained,
his spirit having fled.
He was forty-five years of age and
leaves a widow and son.
The doctor fame* to Marion county
over seven year* ago; became largely
interested in and greatly assisted in
building up the pretty village of Beiie
view, whose most prominent and repre
sentative citizen he was.
Fall of energy and ambition, he soon
found himself in the phosphate current,
and became largely interested in the
batd rock and pebble deposits.
Deceased was also interested in the
sulphur beds of the Windward Island.
He was a director in the Merchant’s
National Bank and Cashier McIntyre
and Directors H. W. Wright and Charles
Rhienaurer attended Dr. fu

Recessed was a valued citizen and bis
loss is greatly deplored.
The Lame Walk.
Pitiful indeed is the condition of those
who are confined to their beds or charies
unable to walk. How grateful all such
must feel when they recover from their
helplessness. B. B. B.(Botanie Blood Balm

We all like to hear of people who suc
ceed, and the Banner never grows
weary of mentioning the names of Ma
rion county residents who have made a
big success in whatever line they em
barked in.
One of these truly successful persons
is A. D. Moore, of Candler, who came to
that place seven years ago from the old
Bay State, with precious little of filthy
lucre, but what is better, with energy,
strength and youthful ambition to suc
To-day he has an orange grove for
which he refused SIO,OOO cash, and a
business worth several thousand dollars
a year, in taking care of groves for non
residents, having nnder his control and
management 150 acres of trees.
Better still, he not only lived comfort
able while accumulating this valuable
property, but established a character for
probity, enterprise and thrift that can
not be estimated by dollars and cents,
but has taken to his cozy home a comely
lassie who, as devoted wife, has added
sunshine and domestic happines in
quantity that no human metric system,
invented by man, can guage or analyze.
Mr. Moore has done more to make
Candler the most prosperous village in
Marion county than any man in it and for
it all be is respected and honored by
every citizen in it, and who are heartily
glad of it, in which the Banner joins,
with a long succession of prosperity.
Mtcanopy and Across Lots.
We made our first visit to Micanopv
last Saturday, and wbat we saw and the
impressions formed of so lovely a pi ice
are worthy of a column but spa:e will

in Florida, embowered as are its cozy
homes amid luxuriant and thrifty orange
A richer or fairer country does not ex

Master at South Lake Weir.
The Easter services at South Lake
Weir, Sunday, were highly interesting
and attractive.
Professor Slreator preached an elo
quent aermon to a crowded house, while
the floral decoiations were certainly
beautitul and in their arrangement
evinced tlie rare taste of the ladies, for
which they are noted.
A pyramid, surmounted witii a cross
six feet in height, with ground work of
arba vita, covered with exquisite roses,
was tbe most striking* and lovely deco
ration in the building.
Another object that attracted great
attention and excited admiration, was a
small cross, covered with water lillies,
while all over the room were numerous
faces, trays and flower pots, filled with
The music was excellent. Mrs, Al
her son presided at the organ, while Mrs.

city were appropriately observed.
The decoration of the Episcopal,

You (Will Find,it In the First
National Bank Building.
This beautiful and useful article which
has attracted so much attention since its
arrival, is located in the First National
Bank building: it is a now and novel
inovation in Ocala and the latest acqui
tion to this popular, reliable and trust
worthy fiscal institution.
The officers of the bask ,mve seen
tlie necessity of one of Halls’ new bank
depository safes and now the people of
Ocala and surrounding country can avail
themselves of its use and protection.
An inspection of Hal 1 ' Depository is
invited and when seen, i.,ose who have
valuable papers, mortgages, deeds, wills,
jewelry, or valuables of any kind, to
protect against loss or theft, will find a
depository for them and under their
own lock and key, with an assured
safety that must he truly refreshing to
those whose worldly goods give them so
much anxiety and uneasiness.
We need not refer to its mechanical
construction, which is really beautiful,
but to its fire and and burglar proof
qualities, for it is a noticeable fact that
Hall’s safes have been in use for over
half a century, and though tbe larger
part of the banking capital of the coun
try have been kept in them, burglars,
with all tbeir ingenuity aud devices,
have never succeeded in forcing their
way into them.
The Depository contains 140 boxes, in
size from 3, 5 and 7 inches in height
and width, to 16 inches deep, which you
cau rent from $3, $5 to $lO per box 'per
year, and to which the renter has a key

The system on which the Deposit lock
works makes it absolutely safe. The
