Pine trees in Florida are becoming
objects for real consideration The di
rect reason for saying this is that Mr
James Sanders was In from Early Bird
Saturday and said that > the saw mill
near that place recently sold three
sticks of timber for which it secured
the price of 150 apiece These tim
bers measured fifty feet in length and
squared eighteen Inches They are
used for dredge boat studs and the
reason they command such a high
price is because itxis difficult to obtain
timbers of this length and size

The Value of Immigrants
We printed a little Rem in our
Thursdays issue stating that 11000
immigrants had arrived in New York
the Thursday before and asked how
many of these immigrants would turn
their faces southward What are im
migrants worth to a country like ours
What for instance are George McKay
Dave Woodrow and that class of men
worth to a country like ours The
worth of these two men perliaps may
be measured in dollars and cents but
the figures would have to be placed
high but in other things and better
things their worth can not be estimat
ed They have married here are rear
ing families and their offsprings will
forever bless our land
Our people should make heroic ef
forts to secure some of these immi
grants that land every week on our
shores We cannot get too many of
them especially of the George McKay
and Dave Woodrow stripe
Street Improvement
Dr S H Blitch manager of the
Commercial Bank has addressed the
fallowing letter to Mr E 1C Nelson
chairman of the street committee
Dear SIrOur little talk during
the past week pertaining to the un
sightly and rocky condition of the
streets around and about the square
has prompted this method of induc
ing an effort by you as chairman of
the street committee to urge your or
ganization and the public to begin an
agitation of means and methods such
as will result in placing the sere ts in
question in a condition In keeping with
Ocalas rapid advancement
The square is situated on an emi
nence thereby affording natural drain
age in all directions
We have the means if not in the
city treasury at least among our pub
lic spirited citizens for the improve
ment necessary
If it is argued that the expenditure
for this work is greater than is jus
tified from the point of view that the
material used may not be lasting nor
satisfactory then begin a series of ex
periments and determine as early as
practicable the most available and
least expensive means and materials
required for this much needed work
