some hundreds of old men non-combatants

and their hands tied behind them In a
mosque. While in the hospital tent
yesterday I saw a young girl, some 15
to 16 years of age. Her family and
friends were surprised by a body of
Italians, and most of them were killed
before her eyes. She fled, but was shot
through the shoulder, the bullet pass passing

out through the biceps. We were per permitted

poor little thing was terribly anxious
to avoid our seeing her face, which
she held steadily averted, notwith notwithstanding

accordance with custom. With the
best will In the world It Is difficult to
believe that a woman could have been
thus shot by accident, for the dress of
the women is so distinct from that of
the men that the unfortunate girl could
scarcely have been taken for one of
her brothers or other male relatives.

warfare, we have had a fair experience
already. One came up over us yester yesterday,

was met by a vigorous sniping, which
did if little or no harm. No bombs

started almost immediately after its
disappearance from view. By the way,
the aviatdTs deserve credit for their
distinctly risky operations. Most of
them, I understand, are Frenchmen:

P. H. Nugent for Clerk of Circuit Court
Editor Star: I respectfully state
that I am a candidate for nomination
for clerk in the coming primary. To
the gentlemen who kindly oppose me
on the ground that I was not born in
Florida, I simply say that thirty years'
residence here should identify me
enough with this county to hold office
and point to the honorable records in
office here of E. P. Thaard, E. L.
Carney, Alfred Aver, Mr. Wartmann,
to the governor of the state, Gilchrist,
all born out of Florida. As there has
been some talk about Mr. Sistrunk and
myself doing so-called trading, I wish
to say that I have no apology to make
for putting off my candidacy four
years, at the personal request of Mr.
Sistrunk, as it involved no wrong
whatever to any man nor barred any
man from running in the lt'08 primary.
Equally the 1912 primary is still
open to all. Months ago I published
Mr. Slstrunk's pledge in all the coun county
ty county papers, not waiting until just be before
fore before the primary, and I will cordially
greet any clean citizen of this county
who may become a candidate for clerk,

result cheerfully in a perfectly friend friendly

enjoyed the occasion.

Music of the Season," which was so
well compiled and interesting that it
will be published in full later on, so
those outside of the club can enjoy it.
Miss Marie von Engelken, one of the
young Members, with much musical
talent, played McDowell's "Sea Pieces,"
which were greatly appreciated and
Miss Downs sang the opera "Bar "Barcarolle,"
carolle," "Barcarolle," by Offenbach. Miss Downs has
a sweet, clear soprano voice, and has
added a great deal to the pleasure of
the music loving public of Ocala since
her residence here.
Mrs. Creviston sang very sweetly
from Edward Elgar's "Sea Pictures,"
"tea Slumber Song" and "Where Corals
Lie." Mrs. Creviston has a contralto
voice of unusual range and sweetness.
Miss Wartmann and Miss Irraa Blake
played a very pretty duet. "FIngal's
Cave." by Mendelssohn, with exquisite
feeling. The chorus practice then fol followed

the heroism of others completely in

as thoroughly as he hated deceit

future, as a blooming Mrs. Smlthers,
sheltered and protected by John, the
envy of all her friends, the possessor
of absolute happiness.
Why did she feel so hopeful? Well,
hadn't Mrs. Smlthers assured her that
John was so attached to his mother
that he wouldn't dream of falling in
love without his mother's sanction?
And hadn't Mrs. Smlthers looked

Now is the time, to buy.
With the many improvements springing up on all sides
of us, making our street (Magnolia) the most popular and
greatest traveled thoroughfare in our growing city of Ocala,
we too have caught the spirit of advancement and, as pre previously
viously previously announced, are going to remodel the building we now
occupy, making it one of the most complete department stores,
not only in Ocala hut central Florida. In order to do this we
must first reduce our stock to the minimum so as to give the
carpenters full sway, hence we are putting on this
GREAT MEMOPELMG SALE.
You will find prices on this page which make all previous
sales, held in Ocala, appear like extortions in comparison.
Read and meditate and then come to see us.
