Mendenhall is threatened with
pneumonia. His illness began with a
congestive chill several days ago. He
has had considerable fever, but that
has been subdued and today he is
somewhat improved. He has lost

physicians, Drs. Bowen and Dicker Dicker-son,

A guard is maintained day and night.
Mendenhall's illness possibly had
its origin with the electric fan which
he had installed in his cell some time
ago. The prison has been extremely
hot during the past ten days and the
current of air created by the fan in
the humid atmosphere caused him to
take cold, his physicians believe.

THE JEWISH NEW YEAR
The Jewish New Year will begin a
'week from today, Wednesday evening
September 8th, with solemn service
in the temples and synagogues. The
Thursday morning service comprise
a more elaborate form of worship
and combines some vestiges of anti antique
que antique ritual with expressions of human
experiences and feelings true and real
for everybody and 'at all times.
The Jewish New Year's festival is
the oldest of all festivals celebrated
in the civilized world. But it is
unique for its significance as well as
for its antiquity. The secular New
Year (on January 1st) is a day of
gratifications; men rejoice in what
they have achieved; it is a day for
sordid inventories. The Jewish New
Year's day, however, is a time for se
rious thought on the meaning of life;
it evokes pious contemplation of the
difficult and inevasible problem as to
right and wrong and its appeal is
not that we should get more mt of
practical life but value more genuine genuinely,
ly, genuinely, more truthfully, more morally the
life God has entrusted t& us.
Much of the success and failure of
our work depend, not upon our equip equipment,
ment, equipment, but upon our motives. The Jew Jewish
ish Jewish New Year's Day, accordingly, la
placed by a wise tradition at the be beginning
ginning beginning of Autumn, when men enter
upon their enterprises and obligations
with zest and zeal. Just then they
need a right interpretation of life
and a true measure of its values.
The antique features of the ritual
of that day express the aspirations
all men feel equally. The trumpet
calls, constituting the central part in
the worship of that day are appeals
for the moral stir which men should
feel when they contemplate their ex experiences
periences experiences and seek for re-enforcement
of their hopes. The calls are
also an appeal to the large sense of
life. Our week-day wishes and
prayers are self-centered and do not
give"u3 a perspective of our relations
and obligations to the community
and fellowman, and of their influence
upon us. But the New Year's day of offers
fers offers us an occasion to re-afSrm our
respect for and trust in providence
which is the organization of all lives
into an all-encompassing justice. The
Jew comprehends this as a comfort
in the case of misfortunes and as mo monition
nition monition in the successes he may have.
The function of the New Year's day Sa
to establish a moral judgement in our
life and experiences.

Star was glad to see them, and they

a heart to heart talk.
The three gentlemen assured the
Star that neither they individually
nor the campaign committee of Blox Bloxham

to the negroes, and the Star willing willingly

what the Star knows of Messrs. Hes Hester,

At the same time, it must be- re remembered

"Bloxham" citizens are working for
the creation of the new county. Some
of them are not as scrupulous as the
gentlemen who visited the Star Tues Tuesday,

Politics is a game, and a rough
game, but the Star tries to play ac according
cording according to the rules. It never makes
any statements unless they have a
fair amount of probability behind
them. If it does a political opponent
an injustice, it is always ready to
correct and apologize if necessary.
".Bloxham can't say the same
thing. It has made a number of mis
statements about Marion, has not
corrected any of them, and we doubt
that it will.
To begin with its principal argu
ment against Marion has been that
county money was used for work on
Ocala' streets. This statement was
not only untruthful but absurd. Its
falsity is proven by the records. But
"Bloxham" orators repeat it at every
Then there is that story about
bonding the county for a canal from
Silver Springs to Ocala. It was
created by a "liioxham" man tor a
purpose, and has been worked for
that purpose ever since.
We asked Messrs. Hester, Phillip3
and .Brewer about the canal story.
They said they obtained it from a re
port in the Ocala papers of a Board
of Trade meeting. We gently called
their attention to the fact-, that a
"Bloxham" man had given the story
to the Gainesville Sun and had it
telegraphed to other papers in the
state ten days before the said Board
of Trade meeting had been held. We
also assured them that as a member
of the Board of Trade and of the
canal commission the Star knew to a
certainty that such a thing as bond

never been considered or even

Star like some of the people with
large properties near Ocala might
have the patriotism to offer the
ground necessary for a range.
WOULD BE BETTER
William Gist of Mcintosh, one of
Marion's leading farmers, and a
director of the Marion Fair Associa
tion, who was in Ocala Tuesday,
made a timely little spiel to the Star
about the exhibits necessary to ob
tain prizes in the corn-selecting con
The association -offers prizes to
farmers and farmers' boys who make
exhibits of not less than two dozen
ears of corn. Mr. Gist says, and the
Star agrees with him, that ten ears
of corn is not only enough, but best
for such an exhibit. His opinion on
this subject is in line with the prac practice
tice practice of the agricultural department.
The Star recommends the directors
to change the exhibits from twenty twenty-four
four twenty-four ears to ten. Its true that an
nouncement of the larger number has
been made in the catalogue. But the
Ocala papers will give notice of the
change, and there is hardly a farmer
in the county who doesn't read one of

the firm conclusion that it would be
almost impossible to get a piece of
legislation as far reaching as this
would be, enacted at any general ses session
sion session of the legislature.
If something be not done between
now and the general election of No November,
vember, November, 1916, these county officials
will be elected again for four years,
thus delaying the enactment of any
law that will give us relief.
Therefore I have thought best to
undertake the task of traveling over
the state and laying this matter be before
fore before the people of every community,
asking them to sign petitions such as
the enclosed, requesting the governor
to call an extra session for the pur purpose
pose purpose of passing such legislation as
will put these officials upon a salary
Assuming that you as a citizen are
interested in helping to put our state
on a business basis I would appre appreciate
ciate appreciate an expression of your opinion
as to the plan outlined.
Awaiting with interest your reply,
I am Very respectfully,
F. A. Wood.
The letter is accompanied by a pe petition,
tition, petition, asking the governor to call an
extra session of the legislature not
later than the last week of April,
1916, for the purpose of enacting such
laws as are necessary to place all
county officials on a salary basis.

With a bitter sigh the realization

most unworthy son were not worth the

But as she ascended the stairs to
make known her resolve she heard the
slam of a door and the sound of hur hurrying

chambers at the back of the house.
She opened the door from the stair
