The Star published Saturday a let-
ter from President Meffert of the city
council, recommending the plan of
the city issuing industrial bonds, for
the purpose of giving help and a start
to industries that seek a home in
Ocala, but do not care to come unless
they are offered inducements that
will give them secure foothold during
the first year or so of up-hill work.
The Star has not heard any dissent
from this proposition of Mr. Meffert's, i
, , ... ;
but a number of our citizens commend
it. One citizen, however, whose ex extensive
tensive extensive business affairs cause him to
know whereof he speaks, says, or
rather repeats what the Star has fre frequently
quently frequently said in ttie last dozen years,
that we cannot hope for much success
in manufacturing until we have bet better
ter better freight rates.
This reminded the Star to again
inquire what was being done in re regard

to start a freight boat line on the Ok Ok-lawaha

Mr. R. L. Anderson says the consti- j
tution of Florida forbids Ocala loan loaning

Mr. Anderson is one of the most

probably correct. The constitution of
Florida is an archaic instrument,
drawn up by men wise in their gen generation,

ters matters the people of the present day
have to deal with. It is simple jus justice,
tice, justice, good business and common
sense, as well as consistent democrat

should have the right to deal with
such questions as they see fit. If the
people of Ocala want to loan their
money to anybody, it is their moral

It is no wonder that some of the
more influential British papers crit criticise

their merchant ships when threaten threatened

the admiralty has issued such an or order,

British to search our merchant ships
with or without excuse.
There will be no full moon during
the month of February. A great many
thoughtful men, however, will try to
make up for the moon's delinquency
in this respect.
A good many people wonder what
the United States will do if German
submarines blow up American ships
on their way to France and Great
Britain, or blow up British ships with
American passengers. Judging by its
Mexican policy, the administration
would say that Americans who do not
like to be blown up should stay at
home. There are a hundred million
Americans who cannot go on ships,
and why should they concern them themselves
selves themselves about the lives and property of
their friends or relatives who have to
put theirs in danger.

Star's opinion that Hobson is at least
partly right. One thing is certain
that if unprepared America becomes
involved in war, while Hobson is able
to fight, he will go to the front. It is
by no means certain that all of his
critics will. Not one of them has
ever dared so much for his country

Billy's remark is something like
those of certain newspapers who are!
fond of telling how they fought this
or that thing to the last ditch. Billy's
fighting consists in getting up before
a vast crowd, the large majority of
jwhom are with him in his every ut ut-j
j ut-j terance and who applaud every state-
ment, and shouting against the evil to
which he is opposed. He draws a
very large stipend for this kind of
fighting and runs not the slightest
! risk of being faced, argued against or
criticised by his audience. He has ev everything
erything everything his own way and this he
calls fighting from hell to breakfast

sit in the seclusion of their editorial

draw attention to the terrific fight

themselves to parliamentary argu arguments

which they subject themselves is that
of being criticised by some opposition
paper, and that is all.

his neighbors in a spring wagon in a
pitiable condition. He was a bachelor,
living alone on his newly settled place,
his nearest neighbor more that a mile
away. He was building a tank frame framework
work framework one day and fell to the ground,
30 or more feet, one of his leg bones
snapped into and the broken bone
drove through the flesh far into the
earth. He crawled on his hands and
knees, possibly a mile for help and it
was next day before he reached the
hospital. Wire grass, dirt, bark and
sand was ground into flesh and bone.
He was operated on, and the boys
used to go up and cheer him up, for
in those days we were half nurse and
boss of the institution, and used to
give the patients food and "other
stimulants" when the doctors were out
and old Aunt Carry was in charge and
dared not tell the "whitefolks" nay.
We can remember how this man
suffered and lingered. So much bone
had been cut away and the break was
so bad that a metal pin had been in inserted
serted inserted to aid the work of nature in
mending the broken ends. Finally,
after many months he was discharged
with a sound leg but a shorter one.
The man had no money none even to
pay for the food but he had better

During the Feast of Epiphany
scores of sponge boats, carrying all
Greek men, women and children of
the sponge centers, put out from the
bays into deeper waters of the Gulf.
Following the offering of prayers and
singing of songs, a large iron cross is
thrown into the water, and the strong strongest

disaster will come to the colonies in
case it is allowed to remain in the
deep. Therefore the search, though
fraught with danger, is seldom given
up until the cross is recovered. Deep
running water is preferred to still

champions who are designated to re
cover the cross dive from immense
heights in order to attain the great

If the waters are too deep for div

is used. Even with the aid of bells,
though, the lives of the divers are en

attain so great a depth that the pres

from their nostrils and ears and pre
vents the expansion of their lungs. In
more than one instance in recent years

have been made to have the cham
pion divers entertain the visitors from
winter-bound states with their marvel-
bus acquatic feats. The cross-diving
ceremony is, of course, held too sac

COLONIAL HAD A FULL HOUSE
Unfortunate Girl Badly Wounded
While Trying to Balk a Negro's
One of the girls at Minnie Pryor's
resort in ths west end lies in her room
with a jagged wound in her neck,
while the sheriff's officers and police
are scouring city and county for her
assailant, of whom they have only the
girl's imperfect description, that he
was a tall black man, wearing an ov overcoat
ercoat overcoat and a high'black hat.
The girl went to the gate last night,
about midnight, with a young man
who had been to visit her. She stood
at the gate a minute watching him
until he disappeared in the dark. As
she turned to go back to the house,
she met the negro, who threw one arm
around her and clapped his hand over
her mouth. She made a desperate
struggle, but he half carried half
dragged her out of the yard to a va vacant
cant vacant lot nearby, where he tried to as assault

The poor girl made a desperate
fight for the little remnant of honor
her life has left, and kept up the
struggle in spite of choking, blows
and threats of death. Finding he could
not overcome her resistance, the negro
used a knife, making an ugly wound
in her neck. However, she broke
loose from him and bleeding and
screaming for help staggered back to toward
ward toward the house from which the other
girls, who had had no idea of her
trouble rushed out to her help.
She was taken to her room and a
doctor called, while the police were
notified. The .doctor found that the
girl had a severe but not necessarily
fatal wound, two inches deep and
about as long on the left side of her
neck. Unless complications set in she
will probably live.
The victim is a rather good-looking -girl,
who came to America from Scot Scotland
land Scotland several years ago and tried to
make an honest living, but was forced
by misfortune into the path that gen generally

We have been asked a number of times within the past few weeks just
what "Dollar Day" meant. It means that a number of Ocala merchants
have determined to keep every available dollar in the, central part of Florida
right here at home by offering especially attractive figures on practically
every article used. Each merchant will offer some special price on an
article or combination of .articles for "Dollar Day," thus enabling the care careful
ful careful buyer to look around and fulfill his wants on that day at a great sav saving
ing saving over the regular prices paid for the same article at other times. This
day has been set for Monday, February loth. Watch next week's Daper for
the advertisements of special "Dollar Day" items. Remember the merch merchants
ants merchants do not make these prices for any day except this particular one, "Dol "Dollar
