to Trenches to the Last


London, July 23. The British stick
J to their trenches to the last man,
hence their heavy casualties. The
I French, the Germans and Belgians
have no sentiment about yielding
ground, if to their military advantage
to do so, especially when they can
draw the enemy on to marked ranges.
But the tradition of sticking it out to
the last, born of the days when man
was pitted against man instead of
man against machine, is so strong in
the British army that one of the
most important lessons of the war
has yet to be learned by it.
These are the observations of a
Canadian surgeon who has worked on
the three allied fronts in Flanders and
made a close study of the different
fighting methods.
According to his account, the
French and German, unlike the Brit British,
ish, British, lay no stress on holding their
front line of trenches. In case of an
attack they withdrew to. the rear
lines. Being a careful measured
range, the enemy in taking the first
line gets into a wasp's nest. The
French, with marvelous accuracy, pour
both shrapnel and high explosive
shells from their famous 75 field
guns. When they assume the effen effen-sive
sive effen-sive and capture a German trench,
they proiect their men with a curtain
of fire as long as possible; but if its
occupation seems like to prove too ex expensive,
pensive, expensive, they withdraw, measuring
the ground as best they can in their
letreat in order to correct the aim of
their batteries. Somewhat the same
tactics are followed by the Germans,
who, however, use machine guns in instead
stead instead of field cannon. But the Brit British
ish British hold on to their front trench
when attacked, and onto the captured
trench when -attacking, with a cour courage
age courage unexcelled in history. But they
act with more courage' than intelli intelligence,

of the Germans by their very stub stub-lwrnntss.

c'.ue to an effort to stick it out to the

have retreated, shelled out the foe and
made a fresh attack. This is the
French policy of attrition. It enabled
them to assume the offensive at will
and to keep up a constant and wear wearing

woman his wife. He was not a pau pauper
per pauper but the next thing to it. At any
rate, he didn't have enough money to
carry on a prolonged and expensive
fight for his life.
The Star's suggestion to the women
o 'even thinirs up" is decidedly 11
advised and dangerous. Of course, if i
they would pick out only the men
"who deserve to be killed," it wouldn t
be so bad but the woman who makes
up her mind to kill is going to kill
the man she wants killed, regardless
cf whether or not he deserves it.
Same thing is true of the man killing
tha woman.
The Mendenhall case must have
gotten on Editor Benjamin's nerves.
It is altogether unlike him to suggest
murder especially to the "female of
the species," who, we are told, is,
naturally, "more deadly than the
male." Tampa Tribune.
The Star is glad the Tribune called
its attention to the llenson case. In
another place will be found an extract
from the DeLand News, telling of
another woman slayer who met his
deserts. It will be noted that both the
Tribune and the News support the
Star's contention, saying that one of
the men punished was a pauper and
the other very poor.
The Mendenhall case has not in the
least got on the Star's nerve.", and
the Tribune needn't be tribulated over
the Star's advice, for it hasn't advis advised
ed advised murder but justice. Any man who
betrays a woman and then deserts
her deserves to be 'killed; and if a
bunch of such men were killed in the

and daughters would be safer.

' !!oxham countyites," namely, that
Ocala is imposing on all the country
round about, and very mildly hut
thoroughly replies to all of that much
mistaken argument.

table. charitable. Now what are the 'Void facts" that
Mr. Harrison has laid bare?
One is that his section Ii is not re received
ceived received its share of the benefits of
good roads derived from taxation,
while Ocala lias received more than
her share.
Mr. Harrison seems not to be aware
that Ocala vitrifies her own streets
and lays down her own cement side
walks out of taxes levied for munici municipal
pal municipal purposes by her city council.
The property owners are compelled
by a direct tax to pay for their own
sidewalks and two-thirds of the cost
of the streets, and by an indirect tax
help to pay for the other third.
If Mr. irarrison will be considerate
enough to read the proceedings of
the riir counicl he will discover that
these severely burdened property
owners are begging for the privilege
of making the payments for these im improvements
provements improvements to run through a course of
one, two and three years.
So the taxes Mr. Harrison pays into
the county treasury are not applied
for the liquidation of said claims.
, hy. then, loes he feel so sore
against Ocala?
Then again:
Mr. Harrison says that the reason
his section receives less of the good
roads fund than its share and Ocala
receives more than her share is be-
case his section has but one member
on the board of county commission
ers, against four others.
Is not that true also of Ocala? Sure
ly he is disposed to be fair reasona
ble and charitable?
Ocala has but one member on the
board of county commissioners, when
there have always been four from
the, country.
How, then, is it possible for Ocala
to improperly inflenco the board?
It isthe country, not the town, that
exercises the preponderance of pow
er on that board.
Our old friend is likewise grieved
because bis section has not receive
its full share of the taxes derived from
the school fund, while Ocala, he
claims, has received more than her
He assigns the same reason
therefor, viz: Because Ocala has
nrenonderance of influence on the
school board.
Again our friend is laboring under
a delusion which is alike unfair and
uncharitable to Ocala. Ocala has bu
one member on that board whle the
country has two.
Ocala, it is tnV has a local specia
tax hoard of trustees, but this priv
ilege is not denied to the section in
which Mr. Harrison resides. It calls
for more taxes derived from the par

is glad to have those lving in the

We desire to cajl the attention o

Is Mr. Harrison aware thai this
would give Ocala the benefits of
lar-rer share of the taxes than she
now receives.

When you enter the agricultural de

on a new power that Is the inspira inspiration
tion inspiration of the soil. You are overpowered
by the grandeur and magnificence of
the scene that is the spirit of the
harvest. You can hear the voice of
nature calling you back to the soil
that is opportunity knocking- at your
door. It is a good chance to spend a
quiet hour in contact with the purity
and perfection of nature and to sweet sweeten
en sweeten your life with Its fragrance, elevate
your Ideals with its beauty and expand
your imagination with its power.
These products as food are fit for
the gods, and as an article of com commerce
merce commerce they ought to bring tip-top
prices on any market In the world.
The products of the soil are teachers
and preachers as welL Their beauty
gives human life Its first entertain entertainment,
ment, entertainment, their perfection stirs the genius
in artists; their purity furnishes mod models
els models for growth of character and their
marvelous achievements excite our
curiosity and we inquire Into the won wonderful
derful wonderful process of nature.
Before leaving the parlor of agricul agriculture
ture agriculture where nature is parading in her
most graceful attire and science Is
climbing the giddy heights of perfec perfection,
tion, perfection, let us pause and take a retro retrospective
spective retrospective view. How many of you
know that after these wonderful prod products
ucts products are raised, they can seldom be
marketed at a proflj? Take the blush
Ing Elberta, for example they were
fed to the hogs by the carload last
year. The onion the nation's favorite
vegetable every year rots by the
acre In the SouQiwest for want of a
market and as a result hundreds of
farmers have lost their homes. Cot Cotton
ton Cotton nature's capitalist often goes
begging on the market at less than
cost of production.
It is great to wander through the
exhibits while the band is playing
"Dixie" and boast of the marvelous
fertility of the soil and pride ourselves
on our ability to master science, but
It Is also well to remember that there
is a market side to agriculture that
does not reflect its hardships in the
exhibits at a county fair.
This nation Is now In the midst of
a controversy as to how best to pro promote
mote promote universal peace. That question
we will leave for diplomats to dis discuss,
cuss, discuss, but peace within nations is no
less Important than peace between
nations and It is heavily laden with
prosperity for every citizen within
our commonwealth.
Many leading politicians and ofttimes
political platforms have declared war
upon business and no cabinet crisis
ever resulted. Many men have stood
In high places and hurled "gas bombs"
at industry; thrust bayonets into bus business
iness business enterprises and bombarded ag agriculture
riculture agriculture with Indifference. Party
leaders have many times broken dip diplomatic
lomatic diplomatic relations with Industry; sent
political aviators spying through the
affairs of business, and political sub submarines
marines submarines have sent torpedoes crushing
into the destiny of commerce. Dur During
ing During the past quarter of a century we
have fought many a duel with prog progress,
ress, progress, permitted many politicians to
carry on a guerrilla warfare against
civilization and point a pistol at the
heart of honest enterprise.
No man should be permitted to cry
out for universal peace until his rec record
ord record has been searched for explosives,
for no vessel armed or laden with
munitions of war should be given a
clearance to sail for the port of Uni Universal
versal Universal Peace. Let us by all means
have peace, but peace, like charity,
should begin at home.
No man especially If he Is mar
ried would deny woman any right
she demands. Take the earth and
give us peace, but why does woman
long for the ballot?
When all is said and done. Is not
the selection of the butcher more im important
portant important to the home than the election
of a mayor; ls not the employment of
the dairyman a far more important
erent in the life of the children than
the appointment of a postmaster; is
not the selection of books for the
family library more important than
voting bonds for jail and court house?
Why does woman lay aside the im important
portant important things in life? Why leave the
substance and grasp at the shadow?
Be it said to the credit of woman womanhood
hood womanhood that It is not. as a rule, the
woman who rocks the cradle that
wants to cast the ballot; it is not
the mother who teaches her children
to say "Now I lay me down to sleep"
that harangues the populace; it is not
the daughter who hopes to reign as
queen over a happy home that longs
for the uniform of the suffragette. It
is, as a rule, the woman who despises
her home, neglects her children and
scorns motherhood that leada parades
and smashes windows.
