Mr. II. J. Davis, proprietor of the

a most miraculous escape from death
yesterday afternoon about six miles
south of town when his car turned

moderate speed when the car struck
some object in the road and "took

They dug around him and released
him from his perilous position little

came to Ocala this morning and sent
Mr. B. B. Buie of the Knight and

Considering the fact that it was
found with all four wheels in the air,
it sustained very little damage. The
hood and windshield were complete completely

the car is practically unscratched.

Dr. Cook claims he was the first

But Dr. Cook's assertion is believed
by many, among them some of the
foremost scientists familiar with the
Arctic. So far as personal proof is
concerned, there is just as much rea reason

Peary. Dr. Cook says he went to
the pole with only the Eskimo be because

go with him. Peary deliberately
shut out the white men on his ex expedition

At any rate, Dr. Cook has been,
far north very far. If not to the
pole, very, close to it. The Star has
always believed that he made an
honest statement. He might have
been mistaken so might Peary.
The people should turn out in
force to hear and see him. Both will
be notable and interesting.
The Star is sorry to say the Chau

This is to be regretted, for there is

The expense of the Chautauqua is

of Ocala. Beginning at 30 o"clock
Dr. Tupper openei the program ar arranged

delivering a thirty minute talk on
the. Bible. His stories, attractively
tcld, were interesting not only to
the youthful hearers but to the old older
er older ones as well.
At 10 o'clock Mrs. Lydia W. Lock Lock-ling
ling Lock-ling established a drawing card for
her talk and if all her talks are as
praiseworthy as the one this morn morning
ing morning her audience will increase rapid rapidly
ly rapidly in numbers. Mrs. Lockling is a
trained kindergartener and also a
writer of some prominence. She told
the children original stories of the
Bible, of history and about fairies
and made thinks so plain to the
! children that they readily grasped
the speaker's meanings.
The morning session concludes
with Dr. Tupper delivering his noted
lecture "The Literary Glory of the
Bible." This celebrated discourse
has been heard by thousands of peo
ple and for its fullness of wonderful
food material has been pronounced,
and deservingly. one of the very bet
Chautauqua lectures in this country.

Some little time ago there was a
frequently seen advertisement,
which pictured a woman tied by a
long, stout rope to a ham, boiling on
the stove. She had gone to the
length of her tether so as to gaze
longingly at an automobile rushing
by from which waved a group of
laughing friends. "Tied to the
Stove," was the title ot this suggest suggestive
ive suggestive sketch. I never looked at it
without thinking, that fitly portrays
what home economics mean to half
the women I meet. They see in it a
covert attempt to lasso them in their
flight toward the open road and tie
their foot to the stove and the ket kettle

world goes happily whirling by. They

their appetites an edge,
For the eggnog now is nogless and
the rye has gone awry.
And the punch bowl holds carnations
and the South is going dry.
All the night caps now have tassels
and are worn upon the head

And the breeze above the blue grass

There are thirty-two states in which
the combined number ot saloons is

Chicago. A population of 46,029,-
50 is now living under no license
out of a population of 91,972,266.
Of the 2,856 counties in the United

saloon. There are more than five
hundred cities having a population
of 5,000 or more, and almost two
hundred cities having a population
of 10,000 or more in which saloons
have been abolished. In nine states
with an aggregate population of al

Artistic Tea for Mrs. Van Hood
Tuscaloosa, Ala., Times-Gazette:
The second of the series of beau beautiful
tiful beautiful entertainments planned by Mrs.
William Alexander Collier in honor
of her mother, 'Mrs. Van Hood of
Ocala, Fla., occurred yesterday aft afternoon
ernoon afternoon and gave sincere pleasure to
about fifty Tuscaloosa ladies. The
affair took the form of a tea and it
proved to be a distinctive function,
dainty in its every appointment and
artistically planned and executed.
The" hall was abloom with violets
and early spring blossoms while
there was a veritable golden glow in
the drawing room from the quanti quantities
ties quantities of daffodils and jonquils so lav lavishly
ishly lavishly used in the color scheme for
this apartment. Bowls and vases of
these radiant flowers smiled at one
from every hand and the walls were
festooned with southern smilax.
From this pretty room there was an
exquisite picture presented by the
dining room, where the tones were
all green and white.
Smilax trailed gracefully from cur curtains
tains curtains and walls while vases of white
carnations were placed artistically
here and there. The center table
was a delight to the eye. In the
center stood a cut glass basket filled
with white carnations and around it
was built a fence, the rails of which
were made of green mint sticks and
over this confectionary fence climb
ed sweetpeas in confection form
Outside the sweet pea fence stood
numbers of little bon-bon baskets,
made of marshmallows, the baskets
filled with sweetpeas, the whole be being
ing being a cleverly made confection. The
centerpiece was a handsome Cluny
design and around the circular table
were numerous Cluny mats on which
stood crystal candlesticks holding
white tapers and adorned with white
carnations. Ropes of real smilax
daintily fell from candlestick to
candlestick, giving an exquisite touch
to the beautiful pictures.
There was served in these beautiful
surroundings a plate that further
carried out the artistic white and
green idea. Chicken glace was serv
ed in lettuce baskets, the handles of
which were twined with smilax. A
pistachio icewas served in baskets
made of spun candy in a beautiful
shade of green, the color of the con confectionery
fectionery confectionery basket and the ice being
delicately contrasted. In the hall
were served coffee and rosette waf wafers
ers wafers of a most delicious description.
Mrs. Van Hood's gown was a rare
creation of lace and crene in a love
ly deft blue shade. It wai of crepe, j
hand-embroidered in chrysanthe-!
mums. The waist was of the lace!
draped with the crepe, caught at the
'back with a large jet buckle and in
the front with another jet ibuckle
from which hung jetted ribbons.
Crepe sash ends down the front of
the costume were finished in mink's
heads. .Above the crepe on the cor-j
sage rose a Vandyke design in deft
blue and gold passementerie and
Mrs. Hood wore a corsage :bouquet
of sweetpeas also in the pastel
shades which were the distinguish distinguishing
ing distinguishing feature of the beautiful toilette.
Mrs. Hood is a most charming
woman and a particularly delightful
conversationalist. She is brilliant
and gracious and all who meet her
become her warm admirers. There
is much regret that this visit of Mrs.
Hood's is for so short a period.
Mrs. Collier was: as usual a most
cordial and lovely hostess.
