Too Much Schedule and Not Enough
Moonlight, Nor Any Other
- Light
The city of Ocala has what is called
a moonlight schedule for its electric
lights that is, the lights are not sup supposed
posed supposed to be turned on at. night until
the moon goes down.
That is all right .vyhen we have full
moonlight, but not when the moon
looks like a slice of watermelon that
has just emerged from a seance with
an A fro-American.
Last night, when the sun went
down, there was a little 25-watt piece
of moon hanging by its horns to the,
western sky. Consequently, the street
lights were not turned on, and the
town was in dense darkness until
after 11 o'clock.
The little section of moon .gave
light enough, if one was out in an
open field, to keep him from stepping
on his feet, but in the, shadow of the
trees and houses, it was the same as
no moon ac all. Such as it was, it
soon let loose and fell down behind
the western horizon, but even then
there were no street lights.
It was so dark on the streets,
shaded as they nearly all are by big
trees, that people could hardly see
their hands before their faces. PeQ PeQ-ple

home, had almost to feel their way.
There were a number of strangers in
town, and if any of them went to
church it was because some of the
town people took them by the hands
and led them, and no Ocalan could
have found the way -unless he or she
knew it well enough to walk it blind blindfolded.

This kind of business is an imposi imposition

advertisement to our visitors. The
people pay enough for the lights. Let
them have them when they need them,
and not after midnight. If they are
not to have any lights, let the council

lanterns, and property owners can
put up lampposts with kerosene lamps

We hold certain things to be true
self-evident and not to be questioned.
Of these plain and undeniable
truths none are more apparent and
fundamental than
The right of the people to make
and enforce all laws and rules for the
common good;
The right of the people to absolute
equality in sharing the benefits and
the burdens arising out of the opera operation
tion operation of the laws and rules they make.
Now it is equally plain that until
all men are governed by the golden
rule, absolute equality under the law
cannot be attained. There will be
found in every community certain
acorn hunters always trying to get an
unfair advantage, certain lawyers to
tell them how to do it and keep out
of jail, and enough senseless syco sycophants,
phants, sycophants, worshipping success, to make
expert acorn gatherers respectable.
A hard combination to beat. And
all the efforts made by man to main maintain
tain maintain a democracy in fact as well as in
theory have not prevailed against it.
The best we have, been able to get is
the form and that part of the sub substance

to scare the acorn hunters away. Let
u be thankful that we are hopeful." i
No conscientious objector can ris ;
up against the assertion that any plan
by which the benefits of an institution
maintained at the. public expense, can'
be carried to all the people who are
tax burdened, is a good plan. Any (
plan that will scatter the benefits
better is also good in proportion to
the length and breadth of its scat- j
teration. Let us also be thankful i
that we have learned to be moderate
in our expectations.
Believing all these things our mod modesty

to suggest to the board of control that

take a just, joyful and proper pride
in the fact that by their self-denial
in making a law imposing upon them themselves

of Florida were, last year, given u

they may want to do. Our Charlie

call this 'increased efficiency," and
tell their cashiers to increase the stuf stuffing

There is no doubt about it, we were
all glad of the chance to give this

People are easily frightened when
they think something is the master with
their lungs or heart, and well they
may be; but few -people understand
the dangers of diseased kidneys. These
organs have a duty of vital importance
to perform, and if they are diseased,
there is no telling how or where the
symptoms may appear. The kidneys
are filters, and when they are healthy
they remove the poisons from the blood
and purify it. When the kidneys are
diseased, the poisons are epread every every-where,
where, every-where, and one of these poisons is uric
acid. The uric acid is carried all
through the system and deposited in
various places, in the form of urate
salts in the feet, ankles, wrists and
back often forming bags under the
eyes. Sometimes the resulting trouble
is called rheumatism, lumbago, sciatica
and backache. Finally, come stone

Anuric Tablets. They dissolve uric

at the bold and pleasing handwriting
brought a quick flush to his face. Sure Surely

hasty note of dismissal "were the same.
So Justine had found her way to this
deserted cabin ; then her sapping place
must be In a nearby farm house. The
heading of the closely written page
caught his attention, "Dearest, he

Homer Brant's heart pounded furi furiously,

lines: "Across the miles I have trav traveled

The pad slipped from the man's
trembling fingers. So this- was the
secret of the softly brooding eyes;
and love after all these years had but
found him to make mockery.
Homer sprang to his feet, as a girl
came through tlye doorway, came and

"Justine !" he cried out sharply, then

These late investigations have put a
decidedly new face on the matter.
Whether it is because women are be becoming
coming becoming more fond of freedom or be
cause the rewards of industry are for
them becoming higher, or because ol
the rising price of keeping house or
the growing reluctance of the male to
marry, the fact remains that many
women are found who have had ten or1
more years of industrial experience
-and still show no tendency to wed.
Then; too, that versatile woman who
both marries and holds her job is on
the increase. It Is to be hoped that
she, rather than the bachelor working
woman, is the coming type. But the
significant thing is that the .majority
of women now entering industry are
entering to stay.
Since the war women have been
pouring into industries that formerly
employed only men; the number of
women in Industry has Increased by
one million during the past year. Wom Women
