the program which I have in mind,

Protection of Cattle Industry.
The 1910 census credits Florida
with about 800,000 head of cattle,
valued at about eight million dollars.
It is estimated that about three per
cent, of these die annually from cow
ticks, causing a loss in deaths from
this source alone of about $25,000.00
a year. The Federal govern government

Check Land Frauds.
Every county in Floiida has a
large quantity of rich, fertile land,
and there is no reason whv there
should be any land frauds in our

disposed to defraud and deceive land

Authorize Cities to Change Charters.

of the legislature is consumed in
the consideration of local city char

lature of this work, and in order that
the people of the towns and cities
may have authority to make their

people of Ocala and of the members of

the Woman's Club on Wednesday aft-

Audubon work of the state. Dr. Black-
man gave a brief account of his recent
cruise among the bird 'reservations

Caloosahatch.ee river, during which he
observed about six thousand birds and
identified fifty species, some of them I

of the effort which the Florida Audu
bon Society Is making for the protec- j
tlon of the bird3 of the state, and made
a plea for the cooperation of the club
women and the teachers in this work.
He asked the ladies to become mem

Junior Audubon classes in their var

fluence in favor of the passing by the:
incoming legislature of bills protect

Perdue of this city has, for a number

both these matters, Florida Is almost I

A Pie&ftaat Evening for the Member
of Tulnla Lodge,
I. O. O. F.
The members of Tulula Lodge I. O.
O. F., met in large force Tuesday eve evening

half of the year 1913.
On being called to order, the mem-
hers heard with regret that ice

mentg( to perform the duties of the
office and therefore declined to serve.
Hendrick's decision, but hope to re-
ward his faithful service with their
highest honor at some future time
Two popular and efficient past grands
were then nominated for the office
and tied on the first ballot. On the
second. L. F. Ballard was elected to
(again fill the chair he worthily oc-
Flor-Jcupied a few year3 ago.
The installation then proceeded
presided over by Past Grand W. H.
Coleman, assisted by the veteran Odd
Fellows M. M. Little and Jake Brown,
who by many years of faithful service
under the three-link emblem know its
ritual by heart. The past grand de
gree was conferred on A. M. Lansford,
who during his year of passing thru
the chairs has not allowed anything
but imperative business or sickness in
his family to keep him from his post.
The officers Installed were as fol

The business of the evening having

A revelation into the methods adopt

panies was made to the Star in the
settlement of the claim of Mr. Peyser,
While at work at a paper cuttins
machine not long ago, the machine in
some unaccountable way went wrong
and the blade came down and nearly
severed the fingers of Mr. Peyser and
only througn the quick-witted action
of two of his associates was his hand
saved from complete amputation. A
young woman in the shop, seeing the
accident about to take place, threw off
the power switch and a man standing
nearby caught the fly wheel of the
machine in an effort to keep the blade
from coming down. Mr. Peyser was
disabled for about three weeks, but
has now completely recovered the use
of his hand.

I thought sure I had lost my bank book recently. I called up the cash cashier,
ier, cashier, Mr. Bliteh, ami asked him what I could do so the finder could not draw
my money. He told me there was no danger of that. Even if a dishonest
prson should find my bank book he cannot withdraw the money without a
written order from me. They have my signature on file so no one can forge
I found the book later, and when I got my pay envelope, I deposited ten
dollars first thing. I'll not spend that ten foolishly. I think I can bank fif fifteen

banks to pay interest on deposits of

State Right of Appeal.

should be absolutely no favoritism

step towards equalizing of taxes
could in my opinion be accomplished
by changing our system so as to

the levy of an ad valorem state tax,
and have the state government sup
