Mr. R. C. Camp i3 a good sport as

and instead of going up in the air,

plenty of such Americans in the coun country,

if things do run to suit U3 only once

However, we would be glad if Mr.

. -The editor scanned this production,
-and saw that Mr. Camp was several

time for a man on an afternoon paper
to argue or explain, so he took the
quickest way and turned the article

The Star did not say it had talked

what it said:
"But if Mr. Camp goes into
politics, if he tries to thwart the will
of his fellow citizens in the courts and
if he goes to Tallahassee to try to
have the city charter framed to suit
him, he needn't wonder if people make
comments; and why shouldn't the Star
express in print what it hears a hun hundred
dred hundred citizens say."
, Quite different, isn't it ?
The Star does not think there are
a hundred, it hopes there are not .a
dozen, citizens in Ocala who wish to
deny Mr. Camp the privilege, or
rather the right, of taking share in
making any changes there may be
made in the city chaster. But what
we meant to say, and what we did
say, was that when he takes a dis disproportionate
proportionate disproportionate share in trying to in influence
fluence influence the city government, the courts
, and the legislature, a number of his
fellow citizens are going to disagree
with him, criticise him, and counteract
him if they, can.
Isn't it the truth ?
Now, while we are on the subject of j
charters, let's discuss the changes
now contemplated discuss them not
as learned lawyers, who, like a rest restless
less restless man tumbling about on his bed, j
can lie on one side about as well as
on the other, but from the standpoint
: of the ordinary citizen, who knows
little and cares less for technicalities,
but can form a cood opinion on wkt i
is good for him and his neighbors.
To begin with, here are the amend amendments
ments amendments Mr. Camp wants made in the
charter. The first paragraph says:
Notice is hereby given that applica application
tion application will be made to the legislature of
the state of Florida, at its next ses session
sion session in April, 1915, for the passage of
an act authorizing the city of Ocala
to purchase from other party or par par-tics,
tics, par-tics, electric current oi power for the
use of the said city, either for light lighting
ing lighting or manufacturing purposes, and
to distribute and sell the current so
purchased for lighting and manufac manufacturing
turing manufacturing purposes.
Even the casual reader can see that
there is nothing in this amendment
for the people of Ocala. It is to be
passed, if it is passed, simply and
solely for the benefit of Mr. Camp-
that is for the benefit of the Florida.,
as second class matter.

Power Company. It is asking the
people of Ocala to give away some something
thing something that belongs to them, without
obliging anybody to give them any anything
thing anything in return.
If it hadn't been that the city char charter
ter charter of 1897 stood in the way, this
right and property of the city would
probably have been taken from them
last year and given to the Florida
Power Company. Mr. Camp wanted
the contract to supply the city with
current, and a majority of the council
was willing to give it to him. The
people didn't approve of the attempt
to take their electric business away
from them, a3 last December's elec election
tion election plainly showed.
The second -paragraph of Mr.
Camp's amendments says:
Also for the passage of an act au authorizing
thorizing authorizing and requiring the city coun council
cil council of Ocala to submit to the registered
voters of said city, any application
which may be made to said city, or its
council, for a franchise, whenever a
petition or application, signed by
twenty per cent of such registered
voters of the city, shall be presented
to the council, praying that the ques question
tion question of granting such franchise shall
be submitted to and passed upon by
the registered voters of the said city.
This amendment, if passed, would
give a fine opening for gumshoe work.
Almost any prominent citizen can
pick up signatures of 20 per cent of
the registered voters to any paper he
may take around. Some would sign
it without reading it, a good many
without understanding it, and some
for a drink. We don't believe Mr.
Camp would buy votes with drinks or
anything else; but a few weeks ago
he had circulated a petition which a
good many people signed just to oblige
him. Some of those who signed it told
representatives of this paper that if
the matter concerned came to a vote,
they would vote against it.
Twenty per cent of the voters is
probably enough for such a purpose if
they know, and everybody else knows,
what they are doing, and if Mr. Camp
had embodied in the proposed amend amendment
ment amendment that a request for a franchise
should not be circulated for signatures
until it had been published in one of
the city papers for four weeks, it
would not be very objectionable.
So these are Mr. Camp's two
amendments. One is strictly in his
own interest the other can be put to
a bad use by any bunch of corrupt
politicians who may obtain temporary

fellow citizens; while it may not be
improper, even tho it be a little un unkind,
kind, unkind, to remark that Mr. Camp has
not been elected to help govern the
city, either in Ocala or Tallahassee.
The first of the amendments is a3

in the same manner provided by law
for the collection of state and county

tax for the year in which such error
or omission occurred in addition to
the taxes for such ensuing year.

This amendment may be turned
down, but it is for a good purpose, and
the amount it would make each one
pay would be too flight for anyone to
notice. Some of the greatest cities of
Europe have had such enactments in
their laws for many years, and the
people have approved of them.

from its revenue if it is not allowed

will be obvious.

The gentlemen who originated this
had the best interests of the city at
heart. They want to build up Ocala
industries and attract more people to
come here. It is a power we should
not be afraid to put in the hands of
the present council. It could be put
to very bad use by corrupt men. The

Oxford, March 15. It is a sad duty
to chronicle the death of one of our
young men, just blooming into man manhood
hood manhood Robert Holly, the eldest son
of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Holly of this
place, and who was widely known in
Marion county. Robert, as we all
knew him, had been away for some
time working further south, and
came home a few days ago ill. He
was not thought to be very sick at
first, but in spite of all that loving
hands could do, he passed away to
the Haven of Rest, Saturday, March
Only a few weeks ago, he seemed to
be in the best of health, and his un unexpected
expected unexpected death is a mighty shock to
his father, mother and little brother,
and will leave a gloom of sadness
in the once happy home for a long
time to come.
In this sad event we are again re reminded
minded reminded that death is abroad in the
land among the young and rising,
as well as the older ones, and that
death is no respector of persons.
Robert was only about nineteen
years of age; and in spite of the im immutable
mutable immutable laws of God, we regret to
see our loved one taken away in their
tender years; but all we can do is to
submit to the will of the creator of
all things. His remains were layed
away, Sunday, March 7, at the Pine
Level cemetery in the presence of
many nighbors and his grave bore
many beautiful flowers.
The friends of Mr. and Mrs. Holly
join in sympathy for them. They wish
to thank all their friends for their
kindness during his short illness.

ble unable to tell you just how much good my
trip did me. I am going to try to do
my very best to pass on what I have
learned. It will surely be a pleasure
for me to do so.
We were kept so busy we did not
have time to get lonesome and think
about home. Everyone was trying to
get all there was to be had out of the
trip in the way of learning. We were
required to attend two and sometimes
three lectures a day and every one
was extra good and instructive. All
pertaining to the home and home
management just what we needed
most to hear.
The cooking lessons were fine. We
were taught to cook the same things

as to make them more attractive and
with greater nutritive value, some something

more of our people, they would hardly
be able to care for all that would be

that care to improve the homes. They
have over 300 students (girls) there
now, all just as pleasant and sweet as
could be. I would recommend the
Woman's College at Tallahassee, to
any mother who has girls to send
away to school and wants them look looked

could be at home.
We were entertained in some of the
best homes and shown over the capi capi-tol

course each one received a diploma,
for we all had done the very best we

are from the same town, Belfontaine

the nick name of their "leader, Mr.
Cappell, hence Cap's Orchestra. They
play the best of music in a pleasing,
individual style -with a "go" and a
"vim" that makes them favorites with
the Chautauqua crowd.
Mr. Cappell, in announcing the
numbers, tells interestingly the his history

At 3:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
Prof. Karl Jansen, Swedish physical
culturist and entertainer, opened a
three days' engagement. The work
of Prof. Jansen covers a broad field in
the line of education and amusement.
He is a member of the University of
Virginia's summer school faculty and
advanced educators find in him a true
exponent of the principles advocated
by that system of gymnastics founded
by Arthur Ling.
Prof. Jansen is a strong advocate
of military training and he opened his
first engagement by saying: "Phy "Physical
sical "Physical culture is what God Almighty
intended and not physical torture."
Quoting "Teddy" Roosevelt, he will be
delighted when every school adopts
military training. "One good has
grown out of the war," he said: "the
debutante slouch cf two years ago has
gone and in it3 place we have the up upright
right upright military carriage. The world
judges you as you look look your
Last night Prof. Jansen devoted a
portion of his hour and a half talk to
telling about some of the beauties and
customs of his native country, "The
Land of the Midnight Sun." He dis discussed
cussed discussed dancing, neither condoning nor
approving it, but he condemned the
modern dances, calling them "rotten
foolishness." A reading from King
Richard III. and "How People Make
Love," the latter depicting love mak making

days of our grandfathers and the
present day automobile love making,
were interesting features of his eve evening
ning evening entertainment.
The speaker illustrated his lectures
with different exercises, such as the
straightening of the shoulders, back
and legs. "Physical culture," said the
speaker, "so-called, has been known to
kill. This is what the Swedish rule
guards against. You Americans are,
I know, the greatest people in the
world, but you have something to
learn from my country. When a girl
or boy knows how to stand and how to
hold the body, he or she will never
have a severe fall. Another rule, is
when you are tired, quit."
