Editor Star: The end of fighting in
France opens : many a question at
home. During the war the hearts and
minds of the men and women of -America
were overseas, but with tjie
coming of victory, we can turn again
to home affairs. It is right and fit fitting,
ting, fitting, therefore, that the friends of
conservation should inquire once more
as to the status of the conservation
movement. It is particularly right and
fitting at the moment when Theodore
Roosevelt, the man to whom this
movement was most indebted, hasl
left us conservationists as heirs to the
task which he began.
The people of the United
own natural resources of enormous j
value lands that contain more than
six hundred million baarrels of oil,
four, hundred 1 and fifty billion tons of
coal, two million acres of phosphate
lands, and more than fifty million un undeveloped
developed undeveloped water, horsepower.
Legislation is now pending in Con
gress to trade or give all this away.
While rjublic attention was absorbed
by the war, measures to dispose of
hese resources quietly passed both
he House and Senate. As usual the
House bills are mainly sound, the
Senate bills thoroughly bad.. There is
serious danger that the latter -frill be
jammed through in the dying hours
of the present session.
The Senate, on January 7, .1918,
after very brief consideration, passed
a bill (S. 2812), dealing with the coal,
oil, gas and phosphate resources now
in public ownership. This measure,
masquerading as a leasing bill, would
surrender, with the title, all control
of waste, output, price and labor con conditions."
ditions." conditions." It fosters speculation in coal,
oil, gas and phosphate, and gives no
assurance of prompt development.
Even the leasing provisions afford no
protection to the public against ex
tortion or monopqly. Still worse,, at
gives title to fraudulent oil claimants,
many of whom have already had their
claims denied by the courts. Finally
there is a joker which would over overthrow
throw overthrow the present lease law for coal
lands in f Alaska, for which we fought
so long, and would turn them over
forever to private hands.
A bill for the leasing of these same
resources was passed by the House on
May 25, 1918. This measure (H. R.
3232) is much fairer to the public in
terests than the indefensible ocmpan
ion bill passed by the -Senate.
On December 14, 1917, the Senate
passed a bill (S. 1439) providing for
the granting of xfranchises for water-
power on navigable streams. It' is sub
stantially the notorious and disrep
utable Shields bill of the previous
Congress, which was defeated by pub-
he condemnation. The House did not
approve it, but passed instead' an en
tirely new bill, drawn by the adminis
tration and covering waterpower not
only on navigable streams, but upon
public lands and national forests, and
international waterways.
When this administration bill was
first introduced I endorsed it heartily,
The House committee on water power
later wrote in a new clause, the most
vital in the bill,. which was very prop
erly opposed by the president. Never Nevertheless,

measure passed the House with this
clause included.
The two sets of bills are now in con
ference. The Senate measures both on
minerals and on waterpowers are
worse than the notorious Ballinger
bills, more hostile to the public inter

Many plays of many kinds have
won success, but it is doubtful wheth whether
er whether there has been another produced
more subtly significant, more deeply
impressive or more wonderful in its
apepal to the senses than the mighty
spectacle, "Everywoman." The play is
dramatic, symbolic. It is allegory; it
is poetry; it is the story as old as the
world of living, breathing men and
women, and it is the story that is as
fresh and "new as youth and beauty
must always be.
It is the story of Everywoman
seeking love and finding it after de devious
vious devious wanderings and long suffering,
trial and disappointment. Everywom Everywom-an
an Everywom-an yi this play is not called Ruth or
Mary or Frances but Everywoman,
and it is by this designation she is
known throughout the five acts.
Everywoman, portrayed by Paula
Shay, seeks love as the greatest treas treasure
ure treasure life, possesses. She leaves her
home in her youth and blossoming
beauty and goes out into the by-ways
of the world as many another woman
has done. She seeks love through pas passion,
sion, passion, through wealth, through society,
but finds in each case a shoddy pre pretense,
tense, pretense, and when her soul is bruised'
upon the rocks of solid, ugly facts,
she is led by truth, urgly old truth,
whom in her youth she despised, to
find love at last waiting for her at
her hearthstone.
Every character in the play is
symbolic of some abstract virtue or
vice or condition with relation to the
life of woman.

A considerable number of auto
parties from northern states pass
thru Ocala every week on their way
soufty So far as we know, there is
never any attempt to induce these
people to turn aside for a few hours
r to see Silver Springs. 'Few of them
know of its existence. It is more than
likely that most of them would be
grateful to anyone who would direct
" them out there. A few signboards in
the proper places would help greatly.
One of the things that should be
done, and at once, to improve the
town, is to tear down all the old Red
Cross, liberty bond, war work and
near-east relief posters that are fill filling
ing filling up so many windows and dis disfiguring
figuring disfiguring so many walls. Everything
of that sort should be pulled down as
soon as a drive is over. Many of those
in evidence in Ocala are a year old,
and are shabby and dirty as well as
cut of date.
Almost all of the republican and
some of the democratic papers are
disparaging the diplomatic ability of
Colonel House. They seem to think he
has no training, r They should take
into consideration that every trained
diplomat in Europe has made disas disastrous
trous disastrous mistakes in the last five years,
and the more training they have the
greater their blunders. And most of
the evil we have had to struggle thru
since July, 1914, has been a direct re result
sult result of the diplomacy of that "master

diplomat," Bismarck. The truth is
that the United States doesn't need
"trained diplomats." It needs only men
who will honestly voice the sentiment
of their great country. ''
America is flooded with schools,
and the cry is for more schools, yet
the testimony of business men and
manufacturers is largely to the effect
that a boy, or girl, a young man or
woman, just out of school, generally
has to be given a supplementary edu education
cation education before he or she is ready to do
effectual work. A boy out of high
school, .with his head crammed with
"higher mathematics, unless excep exceptionally
tionally exceptionally intelligent, has to have a lot
of coaching before he can figure out
a bill of goods for a grocery store. A
young man or young woman fresh
from business college, has to lean
much, and often unlearn more, be before
fore before being capable to fill a place as

bookkeeper or stenographer. A boy
with a good record in a technological
school is for awhile like a fish out of
water in a machine shop, tho' the
average American boy's aptitude for
machinery makes this Jess noticeable
than in other callings. The biggest

ture to city boys and girls. A boy
from the country taking an agricul agricultural
tural agricultural course recognizes much that is
already familiar to him, and often
improves on it, but a city boy might
as well be transferred from the school
room to the moon as from the school
room to the farm. It's the Star's
opinion that this trouble is due more
to the schools than the scholars. For
one thing, many teachers have, only
book knowledge of what they teach.
Another is that they try to teach too
much in too little time. When a
scholar is able to recite a -lesson, he
or she is considered to have learned
it. The fact that the lesson may be
forgotten in a few days or a few
weeks is something the average
teacher doesn't seem to calculate on.
We often feel like sympathizing
with our county commissioners on the
road question. They are severely
criticised for what they do and what
they don't. The Star has been closely
acquainted with the commissioners of
this county ever since it was a paper,
and is quite sure they haye done
about as well as they could under the
circumstances. The road question is
a very difficult one to answer. No
board of commissioners has ever had
more than enough money to build a
little road at a time. If a commission commission-ei
ei commission-ei has a few thousand dollars to
spend on his district, he is at once
faced with claims it would take three
or four times as much to meet. Mar Marion
ion Marion county began improving its roads
a little over twenty years ago. Since
then it has spent considerable over a
million dollars on its roads. Its roads
are npw badly tattered and it takes
over fifty thousand dollars a year to
keep them passable-" in some places,
only near passable. If Marion county
had bonded for a million dollars twen twenty
ty twenty years ago, and" the money Jhad been
honestly and intelligenty spent, tl
expense would have been no greater
and we would have the roads. There
was, of course, a chance for graft and
blundering, and it's the Star's opinion
that, the fear of this chance rather
than' the expense has prevented the
people from bonding. However, it is a
chance this county will have to take
some day; or be hopelessly, distanced
in the race of progress.
Congressman Clark, who has been
working faithfully ever since he has
been in Congress to have refunded
the taxes illegally collected on cotton

bill elsewhere. It will be seen that
he has considered the Wailes claim
and drawn the bill so as to prevent
any state from being involved in
such a snarl. The measure is simple
justice to the South, and Mr. Clark
deserves much credit for the diligence
with which he has pushed the claim
against great difficulties, one of which
is the hostile criticism of some people
who would rather Florida should not
have the money than that Mr. Clark
should have the credit.

Our county commissioners having
decided that the government money
for improving roads shall be spent on
the Dixie highway, will probably
have more for other roads. We hope
that a good proportion of this will be
spent on the Blitchton road. Next to
the Dixie highway, and the road thru
Anthony and Citra, it is the most
traveled road in the county, and is
undoubtedly in the worst condition.
If that road is not attended to, we
will lose a slice out of our- county
sooner or later.

Potatoes Feed tlie World
Different Ages and Sizes of Tubers Demand Special Prepara Preparation
tion Preparation and Aid in Keeping Body Tisiues Alkaline

The general use of potatoes In the average family and the better customs
prevailing in many homes In preparing the tubers-for food are based on
sound economic and dietetic reasons, according to specialists of the office of
home economics of the United States department of agriculture.
Potatoes are easy to cook in a variety of ways. From the point of view
of dietetics, they furnish starch In one readily digestible form, contain mineral,
substances of Importance to the body, and a fact less generally known
tend to make the tissues and fluids of the fcody alkaline, so counteracting the
tendency of meats, eggs, fish and like foods to create acid conditions. Since
the body does Its work best when Its condition is either neutral or slightly
alkaline, potatoes, like most vegetables, perform an Important function In
'the diet besides furnishing energy-producing material. This, scientific fact
justifies the custom that is prevalent In many families of serving a goodly
supply of potatoes or other vegetables with each helping of meat.
, Potatoes, however, 'while a valuable addition to a mixed diet, alone are
not suited to meet the needs of the body because of their poverty In proteins
and fat. Of these latter Important elements protein is furnished in meats,
eggs, fish, milk, beans and similar foods, and fat in butter, bacon, table oils
and the fats and oils used in cookery. r
Greater care than commonly Is exercised should be. taken In peeling
potatoes. Very often 20 per cent of the potato is pared away. This results
not only In the waste of considerable potato but also in the loss of one of the
most valuable portions of the tuber, since the soluble mineral salts are present
In the material near the skin, which should be removed and thrown away.
These salts can be preserved by a more careful removal of the skin, as by
shallow paring or rubbing, and also by boiling or baking the potatoes In their
Paring before boiling, however, may. be the most desirable method of
cooking potatoes, which through 'an undue exposure to light may have ac
quired a bitter taste, or those which have been kept until late In the spring,
since in this way more of the disagreeable flavor is eliminated. Such potatoes
may also be soaked bef or cooking.
', While these methods-may be desirable with potatoes which have been
exposed to light, they result In the loss of considerable food value without
compensating advantages when applied to new or well-matured potatoes. If
such potatoes are boiled after paring, they should be dropped Into boiling
water instead of being placed on the stove In cold water. By the latter
method there Is twice the loss of -protein, pr tlssue-bulldlng elements, result resulting
ing resulting from the former. The loss of mineral matter Is about the same by each
method. There Is no loss of starchy material in boiling unless portions of the
tuber break off.
Practically the only loss when potatoes are baked In their skins is of the
water which escapes as steam. The more or less common custom of pricking
holes In the skin of baked potatoes or breaking them is explained by the
fact that unless the steam which Is formed Inside the skin Is allowed to
escape It will change back Into water and produce sogglness.
' Potatoes which have turned green and sprouting tubers have present a
considerable quantity of solanin, an acrid poisonous substance which, though
not dangerous in the quantities ordinarily met with, gives a disagreeable
flavor. It is best, therefore, to avoid such potatoes or to cut out green or
sprouting portions.

Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., in recent
years, discovered that a certain com combination
bination combination of remedies would dissolve uric
acid (urate salts) in the system. He
found this combination to be harmless,
bo that he made it up in tablets,
of double strength, and called them
Anuric Tablets. They dissolve uric
acid in the human system as hot coffee
dissolves sugar. If you have uric acid
troubles, don't delay in taking Anuric
Tablets, which can be secured in the
drug stores. You can write Dr. Pierce,
too, and he will tell you what to eat
and how to live so that more uric acid
will not form in your system. Dr. Pierce
irill not charge for this advice.
