The Seaboard Air Line is certainly

rake them up again would be like
bringing a man back into court after

but salt has been manufactured in the
creeks and bays of the gulf in twen-'

have none, but we could do without,

There is a number f Marion county

Editor Star: I have read your edi editorial
torial editorial answer to my article in refer reference
ence reference to the good a person does in this
world, etc. You say I am amusing
well to be able to amuse the public
is a great thing, but I think the Star
man has some amusement features
also. In reference to Mr. Rockfeller,
the editor says he did not make oil.
of course he did not. Man did not

I pie denying themselves to help others,
the writer will venture this: There
is not a person in Ocala, not even
the Star man, who would go without
things to eat or wear, to assist some someone
one someone else. Those that help have simp simply
ly simply got more than they need and feel
that they' can spare some for others.
Mr. f Rockefeller has built up an im immense
mense immense fortune by good business meth methods,
ods, methods, economy, .thrift, etc., and I am of
the opinion that the Star man's for fortune
tune fortune would not be less if he had the
"know how" and the opportunity.
We do not know whether Mr. Rocke Rockefeller

very much doubt it but if he does,
he may meet up with a representa
tive of the Star. If the camel and
the needle's eye applies, Heaven will
be mighty thinly populated for those

and main to get that wray and if they
don't it is not their fault.
C. H. Voorhees.
Mr. Voorhees is not the only per
son who has set up Mr. Rockefeller
for a patron saint and contemplated
him so long and earnestly that his de
votion has impaired his eyesight.
Millions of hard-handed, sweating
Americans, who died too poor to pay
for their own funerals have done more
toward "taking what a greater power
has made and bringing them together
in such a way as to make them of
use to the world." Mr. Rockefeller
has distinguished himself by his ex
cellent business methods, which were
most beneficial to all connected with
the Standard Oil trust, but rather
rough on some folks outside of it. In
mining the oil, refining it and issuing
it to the consumer he probably did
less than many of the men working
for him. The Star is sorry for Mr.
Vonrhees if his communication with
his fellow men or his power of ob-j
servation has been so narrow that he!
can sincerely say "that there is not a j
i i i.i in.
person in ucaia wno wouia go wiin
1 out. things to eat or wear to assist!
o .
some one else." The editor of the
Star is not specially charitable nor;
j self-sacrificing, and he isn't dis-
tinguished enough to use in argu

make great sacrifices some devote j
their entire lives to helping others, s

the people of. .other places. We fear
he has held himself too far aloof from
them all to understand them. -r
We don't expect to meet Mr. Rocke Rockefeller
feller Rockefeller or even Mr. Voorhees in hell;
in fact, we have never thought nor
said that Uncle John was a bad man,
nor any, more given to raking off the
dollars than anybody else.1 We do not
know that he even believes in hell,
but its existence is one of the tenets
of the church he belongs to, and for
the last twenty centuries every man
who devoted his younger days to ac acquiring
quiring acquiring money and his older ones to
giving it away has been mder the
suspicion of trying to buy his way
into Heaven. It was Christ himself
who spoke of the camel and the
needle's eye we have seen more
praise for Mr. Rockefeller than for
Christ from Mr. Voorhees' pen. We
have noticed that men and women
who are generous and self-denying
seldom have more than enough, if
enough, for their own needs; and are
never able to stack up colossal for for-tunes.

feller Rockefeller gives away his millions gladly
and without expectation of any other
reward than the joy of giving, which
is indeed a great one.
And now, with Mr. Voorhees' con consent,

before the court.

On taking legal counsel, however,
they were advised otherwise. They

said that under the law it would be
impossible for Judge Call to reduce
the sentence for less than one year

He advised them to go before the fed federal

man had served a part of his term
with a recommendation from Judge
Call and he thought it would serve
a better purpose.
The delegation took Mr. Hampton's
advice. Their visit, however, was a

was looking for his little girl.
"We will go down this morning

ascertain the location of the King Ed Edward

way of getting there.
Jean chatted incessantly on the
Journey down; she was so excited
that Nan felt her own calm engulf
her as if for the purpose of steadying
the child. Consequently, when they
arrived at the hospital and ap approached

broke down emotionally perhaps
mere than he had during the entire
weeks of fierce fighting when Jean
was swept into his uninjured arm.
Over her head, which he held against
his breast, he looked at Nan and made
swift apology for having conversed
in a foreign tongue.
"One is apt to forget convention in
moments of great emotion," he added.
"In a moment I will thank you for
having cared for my little Jean."
"You are not going away from me

Washington, planted his instrument

German ambassador, Count Bernstorff,

the tune of the Marseillaise. How However,
