TROUBLES DO NOT
The old adage that "trouble never
comes singly," hit the Star yesterday
and today. Just as the last forms
were going to press yesterday after afternoon,
noon, afternoon, one of the pages of type was
"pied," that is, spilled in a heap on
the floor, and, to fill the space, one of
the other pages had to be substituted
in the issue.
f Today, we had an unusually large
ad., two pages, to provide space for,
which necessitated the shifting of the
usual make-up of the pages and the
leaving out of some other things.
Thirdly, Editor Benjamin, who had
been ailing since yesterday, had to
give up and take to his bed at mid midnight,
night, midnight, when he is usually just getting
to work on his editorial column and
doing his best work. So we ask our
readers to "excuse our appearance"
of today and yesterday.

The padlock on the outside of the

original usefulness has gone forever.
But th$ building can be made to serve
a noble purpose if the city will re
model the inside and re-open it, not
as a city market but as a farmers'
institute, where samples of every
thing the frrmers of the county grow
can be dai.y exposed, forming a per permanent

very little to the city.
The inside of the building should be
designed for an attractive exposition
of all the products of the soil and a
competent man should be put in
charge as superintendent, whose duty
it would be to list everything a Mar Marion
ion Marion farmer would have for sale.
A simple method should be devised
for listing all live stock and other
products of the farm, giving the ad address
dress address of the owner aBd a brief de description
scription description of the thing for sale. Thus,
if a person wisheti to buy a milk cow,
he would find a number listed with
the institute with the age, breeding,
price, etc., set opposite the name of
the owner. It would be the same with
a horse or mule, with a hog or sheep,
or a herd of any of the domestic an animals.

to the institute and look over the files
and sej just what product of his
county's sold he could profitably use
in his business. And so in like man manner
ner manner the livery man, the dairy man
and the poultry man, in short, any
man could find in this building in a
few minutes time the various kinds
of feed grown by Marion farmers,
with samples and prices of the same,
and in a very few hours at most get
in touch with the owners, and do
business face to face with the tillers
of the soil.

who have toiled from sun to sun to

into millionaires by the thousands,
while those who grew the staple in

Situs ted in the midst of the richest
agricultural county in Florida it is
evident that the prosperity of Ocala
must depend largely on the success
of the farmer, and nothing should be
left undone that the city could do to

DANGERS OF A COLD
Do you know that of all the minor
ailments colds are by far the most
dangerous? It is not the colds them themselves
selves themselves that you need to fear, but the
serious diseases that they so often
lead to. For that reason every cold
should be gotten rid of with the least
possible delay. To accomplish this you
will find Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy of great help to you. It loosens a
cold, relieves the lungs, aids expec
toration and enables the system to
throw off the cold. For sale by all
Three-year-old Dorothy, who was al
lowed to play on the parkway, was
told by her mother she must not get
acquainted with strange people. One
day an organ grinder with a monkey
stopped to play and Dorothy made
friends at once. As the organ grinder
moved away Dorothy followed, her
mother called to her, and she paused
long enough to say: 'Tse yest gettin
quainted wif monkey, not man's."
