TABLOID FLORIDA HISTORY The idea that DeLeon was the first man to explore Florida’s shores would he disputed by some, although there is no positive evidence that John t a hot in hisj 1497 explorations got as far south as Florida. There is in existence, however, a map made ten years prior to Ponce’s voyage that outlines the Florida coast with a fair degree of accuracy, is thought to have been the work of Amerigo Vespucci as Green says that a letter left by Vespucci makes it ap pear that he had visited the region, hut admitted it was possible that \ espucci may have obtained the in formation from “traders who had visited the Florida peninsula.” In either event it would disprove De- Leon’s claim of discovery but not his right of priority aS the first explorer of Florida. He had a crew of six hundred men for his voyage, men es pecial. y selected for their fitness for such hardships, caring for them in three caravels. His first voyage of discovery to Florida’s shores in pursuit of the Fountain of Youth was completed on a sunny day in June. 1513. Shortly afterward, accompanied by his devot ed wife, the Donna Dolores, he return ed to Spain to report in person on his discoveries and they were royally treated, the honors and delights of court life being particularly agree able to the Donna. After some months’ enjoyment of the king’s hospitality tl\ey set sail westward for their island home. Three years later De Leon again set out for Florida on a voyage of discovery. He first encountered a group of keys which he named the Hartyrs of which Key West, as it was later named, formed one of the group: a.so the Tortugas. They first sighted the mainland probably* at Cape Sable, then proceed ed up the west coast, entered a large land locked body of water which he named De Leon bay, now known as Charlotte Harbor. Here he found the ciaeque to be Senguene who told him there were many fountains in the and. It was on this trip that De Leon received the wound by the Ocali tribe that caused his death some days later at his palatial home at Matanzas, Cuba. —Agaew Walsh in Miami Metropolis.

THE “BEAUTY" OF MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS There is probably no woman in history about whom more has been written -than Mary. Queen of Scots — unless it is her rival. Queen Elizabeth, around whom there clings the aura of several mysteries w*kieh have never been definite’y solved. But- while the majority of histori ans of a later date, as well as many writers who were her contempora ries. declared that Mary Stuart was one of the most beautiful of women, there have been several who have denied this fact and have even gone so far as to declare that she was corss-eyed. Among the latter, the most prominent is Charlotte M. Yonge, whose historical romance, “Unknown to History,” created little short of a sensation at the time of its publication. , The statement as to the Queen's eyes was at first denied and then at- j tempts were made to secure proofs j of its falsity. Ail ihe portraits of Mary Stuart were careful.y examined and on most* of them there w r as not shown the indication of a blemish in either of the eyes. But close examin ation of the portrait by Lodge, said to be one of the finest and most au thoritative extant, showed a distinct cast aud it was also noted that .many of the pictures of Mary were painted in profile, much as Kaiser Wilhehn was always photographed in such a position that his deformed hand did ' not appear in the picture. Also, ueader, in liis work “Mary, Queen of Scots in Captivity,” describ es the famous Shepfield portrait in the following words: “The original is painted on an oak panel and represents the Queen as anything but the beautiful woman that tradition lias made her. She has also a very decided cast in her right eye, which the artist, with some skill, has rendered less obvious by repre senting her as looking toward-the left ” Leader likewise calls attention to the fact that Mary undoubtedly at tempted to appear as attractive as possible when sitting for her various Bible Thoughts for the Week Sunday.

From the time of her birth on Dec. 7. 1542, to the day she went to her death' at the hands of the. royal executioner, there were countless hundreds who fell a vic tim to the charm of this, remarkable woman. This is proven, not alone by the eulogies of those who loved her, but also by the unanimous verdict of her enemies. Even Knox referred to Mary’s face as “pleasing," w r hicli the authentic portraits of her hardly ever are. and Elizabeth admitted that there was “more than, a trace of divine beauty” in her hated rival. Of all the portraits which have sur vived the passage of the three and a half centuries since the death of Mary, only a very few justify any claim whatever to beauty or charm of feature. But it must be remembered as Horace Walpole has said: “The false portraits of Mary, Queen of Scots, are infinite in number, as might been expected of a wo man who was Queen of France, Dowager of France and Queen of Scots and around whom there has been built up an almost inexhaustible wealth of romance. Of all the writers w*ho have studied the career of Mary. Miss Agnes Strickland, who spent so much time in separating the myths surrounding the Queens of England from the real history about them, is probably best able to give an unbiased, as well as a * more correct description •of the Queen of Scots. After studying her portraits Miss Strickland says: “The color of her hair and eyes is repre sented as a rich brown as are her eyebrows. Her complexion is clear and delicate but somewhat pa.e. Her nose is straight.” But nowhere does Miss Strickland refer to any defect in Mary’s features and whether or not the' woman who was the most loved Queen of her time was really cross-eyed seems destined to remain a mystery unless some hitherto undiscovered portrait or her is brought to light.—Brooklyn Eagle The Literary Digest for December 16 contains that magazine’s annual summary of information concerning winter travel and playgrounds.#Ocala “with its wonderful springs” is named among the interior cities of Florida offering varied attractions for the SEED CROPS ARE SHORT AND GOOD SEED SCARCE Call now and Book Your Orders for Spring - Requirements Call and Examine Our New Crop FLORIDA SPECIAL TOMATO SEED Just Received OCALA SEED & SUPPLY CO.
