It was found that thife plan wjll mean * considerable saving to the city in salaries. Mayor Peek called the attention of the council to the fact that enforce ment of the sewer connecting provis ions of the city ordinance were not be ing carried out. Mayor Peek stated that the state board of health would send an engineer to this city at any time free of cost to make a survey of the city, and it was decided, to fur ther perfect the work in this connec tion, that it would be advisable to have the engineer come to this city aa soon as possible.

THE IRISH RACE (Continued From Page Sixj Gaunt, brother of Lionel, Duke of Clarence, Shakespeare said: Now put it, Heaven, in his physician's mind To help him to his grave immediately! The lining of his coffers shall make coats To deck our soldiers for these Irish wars. Mr. Nelson. Mr. President, I want to say to the Senator that I am in terested in his remarks, and he re minds me of the fact that my ances tors, the Northmen, sometimes called the Norse pirates, occupied Ireland for a hundred years. They had Norwegian kings in the city of Dublin, and I have an idea that they left some of their warlike and piratical spirit among the Irish. Mr. Ashurst. I have no doubt they did; the Senator from Minnesota fre quently leaves with us no piratical spirit, indeed, because he is too honor able to be a pirate, but he frequently leaves his warlike spirit with us, and when the seats here, which have known him for so many years, no long er know him, which I hope will be many .vears yet, he will be remember ed with affectionate regard by his fel lows who served with him here, be cause never in all Ills long service in publib life has he seen fit to insult any of the races making up the United States, or any of our fellow citizens. Mr. Watson of Georgia. I am sure Jt must be in the mind of the Senator, though he has not mentioned it, that the Irish planted religion and edu cation in Europe. The great Emperor Charlemagne imported school teachers from Ireland, and the great missionary Columbianus and others carried the Christian religion into western Europe The greatest lawyers, the greatest orators, and some of the greatest poets, as well as the greatest warriors w ho ever lived, were Irish, SOCIETY A Delightful Party W ith, Miss Ethel Horne as the host ess and Miss Emma Bailey as the honor guest, the party given on last Saturday at the home of Mrs. Maude Jioine on Oklawaha avenue proved to be ci n.uc’.i pleasure to all r/ho attended. Miss Bailey, on her first visit to our city, made many friends who were delighted to honor her. As the guests arrived they were given a most cordial welcome by the hostess, who received in the reception hall with the honor guest. After a few minutes here with these girls the guests were served punch by Mrs. T. H. Johnson. When the guests had all arrived auction was enjoyed. The three tables were arranged in the pretty music room that had been made even more pretty by the addi tion of many bowls of flowers that al ways add a touch of beauty that can be produced in no other way. After. a number of progressions had been made the scores were counted, and it was found that Miss Louise Spencer held high and Miss Frances Standley the low, and to each of these girls the hostess gave a pretty souvenir to remind them of a very pleasant after noon. Those who enjoyed this after noon were Misses Pearl Ray, Nettie Camp, Elinore Laßlond, Emma Bai ley, Clifton Sexton, Annie Benton Fuller, Frances Standley, Louise and Loureen Spencer, Bettie Cole, Alice Sexton, and Eloise Henry. They were joined by a few of the young boys for refreshments. • • • Miss Irene Tompkins, a student of Wesleyan, at Macon, has arrived to spend the Easter vacation at home with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Tompkins. • • The Ocala High School basket ball girls returned home Saturday after noon from DeLand, where they had spent a few days attending the high school tournament in that city. While the girls did not win the state cham pionship they report having had a very enjoyable and beneficial trip. They were accompanied on this trip by Miss Mary Sheppart, the principal of the school, and a number of other fans. • * * Mr. and Mrs. Phil Robinson and their young son, after a few days spent in Ocala, the guests of Mr. and Mrs. George K. Robinson, have re turned to their home at Inverness. TO WATERMELON GROWERS Already some fields are infested with lice and the young melon leaves are curling up. If the season is a damp one there will be much loss from disease. These things can be stopped or prevented—kill the plant lice or aphids with a spray of tobacco ex tract called Black Leaf 40. If proper ly applied it will syrely kill them, and will not injure tffe plants. Use 1 part of Black Leaf 40 in 1000 parts of water. While the spraying is being done it is better to go to a little more trouble and expense and together with the Black Leaf 40 use Bordeaux mix ture of a4-4-50 strength. This Bor deoux misture is a fungicide and will prevent the anthrocnose disease that causes # such great losses when it does develop, A much larger acreage than usual is planted this year and prunning oft the excess melons to develop only large fine ones will be as necessary as spraying. I shall be glad to help any grower with detailed advice and actual ma nipulation. K. C. MOORE, County Agent. The people of Marion county, and especially this section, should bring their onfluenee to bear on Mr. Na than Mayo to announce himself as a candidate for re-election to represent Marion in the next legislature. Mi*. Mayo, while in the last legislature, made a record for himself which the people recognize and they want him sent back, as they know he will guard them 'against freak legislation and work for the best interests of the state and themselves.

MRS. FRANK GOULD’S ADVICE "Take it from me, girls,” said Mrs. Frank Gould, never marry a million aire for they never stay put. “No more for me,” she sighed. The advice is not necessary down this way. The county and <dty officials have been exceedingly busy—and success ful—during the last few weeks in rounding up ‘’shiners” and others who seem bent on testing out the efficien cy of these officers, to see just how far they can go without being caught. They are learning rapidly. An in spection of the sheriff’s office, with its display of captured stills of va rious makes, nad the different grades of home brew will convince anyone interested that persistently imbibing some of the condoctions only means a visit, sooner or later, to the under taker. Go in nad look them over. Mr. Anthony Tidisco, who has for a long time past, operated the Sara sota Market and made many friends by his polite attention, has parted with the same and has gone to Tam pa to engage in the fish market on a larger scale, but says that as he made so many friends in Ocala he may return very soon.

Did not Sir Robert Horne, chancellor of the British exchequer, say the other day, March 11, that we must cancel that debt, and if we would cancel the sll.- 000,000,000 which Europe owes us they will give Germany credit for it on what Germany owes them; in other words, our people will pay Germany’s reparations. “Who has been appointed on that foreign debt refunding commission? Mr. Mellon, the financial tool of Wall Street, the financial associate of J. P. Morgan, a man holding office in viola tion of the law. Somebody ought to arrest him and send him to the peni tentiary. A man ought not to be al lowed to violate the law so flagrantly and brazenly. What will he do for Mr. Morgan, and for himself incident ally? He will postpone our debt and get the first lien for his debt and then, when propaganda has done its work in schoolhouse, church, Kiwanis Club, and so on, we will agree to can cel.
