SUPPORT THE FAIR
It will be decided by the directors
of the Marion-Sumter Fair Associa Association
tion Association tomorrow whether or not to con continue
tinue continue the fair. The directors, if not
encouraged to go ahead, may decide
to suspend the fair for the year, and
if it suspends for once, it '.will be
very difficult to start it going again.
The Star thinks it would be a mis misfortune
fortune misfortune to Ocala and a black eye to
this section to let the fair suspend.
It would be the worst kind of a bad
advertisement for us, and undo a
great deal of hard work, which if
persevered in will yet bring in a full
crop of good results.
It rests a good deal with Ocala
business men to decide .whether the
fair shall continue or not. If a large
proportion of them will assure the
directors of the fair of their support
next November, the fair will proba probably
bly probably be continued. The support most
needed is in the ,nature of exhibits at
the fair, Ocala business houses have
never been as fully represented at
the fair as they should have been.
Some faithfully kept their exhibits
up year after year, but last year
most of them, discouraged by the
general apathy, dropped out, and the
consequent local exhibit was distress distressingly
ingly distressingly slender.
It would pay' Ocala merchants, in individually
dividually individually and collectively, to keep
displays going at the fair year after
year. It costs comparatively little,
and it has a most encouraging effect
on their ountry customers, beside
impressing visitors from abroad. Mc Mc-Iver
Iver Mc-Iver & MacKay have for years main maintained
tained maintained a whole house at the fair. It
has helped the city and the county
and it has helped them.
Mr. J. J. Gerig last year maintain maintained
ed maintained a fully equipped drugstore at tne
fair. It kept drugs, filled prescrip prescriptions,
tions, prescriptions, gave the people a free tele telephone
phone telephone service, sold soda water and
cigars. It cost more than it came to
oh the spot, of course. But, Mr.
Gerig says, that in other ways, it Jias
more than paid him, and if there is a
fair next fall, he intents that his bus business
iness business shall be represented. ;
For various reasons, the people of
the county did not visit the fair as
well last year as usual. The Star
believes most of these reasons will
be removed next fall. It believes that
if Ocala will insure the fair, the peo people
ple people will support it better than ever
and attend in greater number.
The Star would earnestly advise
our business men to go to the Board
of Trade rooms at 4 o'clock tomor
row afternoon and meet the directors
of the fair association and encourage
them to continue the fair. If we all
pull together, the load will be light
on each one. The trouble now is that
a few have been left to bear the en entire
tire entire burden. They must have assist assistance
ance assistance and cooperation, or they can't
be blamed if they lay it down.
We have had good fairs in the past,
but we never have had as good an ex exhibit

if we all pulled together. It will be
very much to our advantage if we
make a grand pull this year and do

using Latin-using groups, gave the former an ad advantage
vantage advantage of 29 per cent. And why ?
Because the Latin tongue had been
dealt with mainly as1 source of Eng English
lish English speech, and the latter had been
studied in its, derivatives from the
Latin. Thus when studying commer commercial
cial commercial geography, commercial law or
the history of commerce, the hunt on
the side has been, for words of Latin
origin. So with the Latin classics
insofar as they have been read it
has been with a double purpose in
view to get at the content of an au author's
thor's author's thought, and also to see where
and how he used words that since
have been incorporated into English.
The method used produces results
that are attracting the attention of
certain-experts in pedagogy; witness
the comments of Harvard's depart department
ment department of education. If in other schools
it can have for its by-products such
betterment of English spelling and
accuracy of expression as are record recorded

Dorchester high school, 1 then there
will probably be a clamor for more
Latin so taught, if thereby use of
English may- become less slovenly
and spelling more accurate.
