Abaft of the plate sits the trim little

And she knows the front names of
the lads in the spangles

And call balls and strikes with the

At wielding the slang there is no one

Titled Englishman Will Earn His

According to Engineer Dobson of
the steamer St Louis which landed
in New York several days ago the
I
titled Englishman who recently
left has home and a life of ease to
make his own way in the world and
who started his career of labor by
employment on time steamer St Louis
as stoker is lion Francis Patrick
Clements the tWlntytwo year old
son of the late Earl of Leitrini j
The young man in carrying out his
I
purpose renounced his position as
heir presumptive to the earldom and I
has also sacrificed the 4 < ion i pounds
sterling a year income that goes I
with the title Th family has made
every effort since the young man left
the family estate a month ago to in I
I duce him to abandon his purpose
but in vain
I
He is now somewhere in this
country earning his bread When he
wn hired as a stoker under the name
of Sloane his real identity was tin
known On the first day out he was
almost overcome by the heat in shov
el in sr but after tho lirst day he was
as able as any of the other men to
perform his work
He landed in New York with S in
his pocket his wages for the trip
the clothes on his back and hardened
hands What his plans were he told
no one on board except to say that
he intended to get work in New York
Clements reserved his incognito
all the way across It was not until j
the ship returned to Southampton
that the stokers through inquiries j
made b > his relatives learned that j
they had been working side by sale i

on some stretches which the com

railroad claims the right according

f
Mr Damon says that he does not

think that there is any possibility of

He said that the track and road bed j

I
His work will consist of a survey jt
lof the tracks and roadbed of the L

OCALA FIRE DEPARTMENT
Ocalas disastrous fire which laid
almost the entire city in waste oc
curred in 1SS3 Before that time she
had only an occasional small fire and
what was known as the bucket bri
gade was sufficient to stay the pro
gress of the flames as her buildings
were not very near together but after
the great fire tho city took on new
life What is known as the fire lim
its was established and very hand
some brick buildings were erected
The insurance rates were high and it
was imperative that some sort of a
fire organization should be establish
ed
I In lSS5 a fire engine was purchased

I
the Young Americas another the Jno
P Dunn Company another Protective
Hose Company Xo 2 and the D A
Miller hook and ladder company This
led to great rivalry between the com
panies anti fire tests were of frequent
occurrence and several sate tourna
ments were held in Ocala which ad
ded to the rivalry of the companies
Each company had a separate fore
man but Mr Charles H Campbell
then superintendent of the Ocala wa
ter works vas made chief of the fire
department
Mr Campbell served as fire chief
for two years and was succeeded by
Mr Ed Carmichael who served in
this capacity for several years

In 1858 Ocalas water works were
established and water pipes and hy

gave an impetus to the reorganization
of the fire department and two fire
