so then, while there are many things
that I would like to say to my friends
there regarding the campaign I realize
that-1 should not take advantage of
your generosity by attempting to fill
too large a portion of your space.
I believe the man who aspires to
be governor of Florida should have
very strong and clear cut convictions
regarding every important question
that he may be called upon to con
sider while governor, and should be
at all times ready to take the people
of the state into his full confidence as
to exactly where he stands in regard
to those questions.
In a general way I believe that the
subject of tax reform should receive
the profound attention of our leading
men, and that some system of taxa taxation
tion taxation should be devised by which the
burden of taxation may fall more
equally upon all classes of people.
I believe that Florida should have
the best system of good roads that
progressive economy can provide, be
cause the industrial future of the
state undoubtedly largely depends
upon the kind of roads that she may
be in a position to offer to those who
mav contemplate coming into the
state to develop her agricultural re

I believe that a liberal and practi

ing are the best legacies we can leave
to our children, and that Florida
should have the best school system
and the best teachers, and the best
paid teachers that a business-like ad
ministration of the funds of the state
can Drovide. In this connection it
mav be appropriate to say that I be
lieve the entire business of the state
should be run exactly as a careful and
piudent and successful business man
conducts his own business, and that
onlv those financial measures should
be favored that tend to bring back to
the state the largest returns for the
Of course all thinking men now
agree that the greatest asset of an
agricultural state is her soil, and that
every movement which tends to de

couraged. Farmers should have fair
treatment from transportation com
panies, and as far as possible to do so
by law, fair and open markets should
be provided for their products
These are a few of the questions
that I shall later touch upon and en

All his friends knew Sam Phillips
was greatly given to keeping his own
counsel, but more than ever vividly
was it brought home to them to learn
that on his return from his Christmas
vacation he brought home a bride.
Sam went up in North Carolina a
short time ago, and while there he
visited Miss Thelma Wright, a very
charming young lady, a niece of Mr.
W. M. Parker and they were wedded.
Miss Wright spent last winter
in Ocala, in attendance on our high
school. Acquaintance of the two
young people during that time ripened
into love, and each decided life would
be empty without 'the other. The
young lady returned home in the
spring, and Sam visited her during
his summer vacation. We know not
of the plans formed then; suffice it to
say that they have decided they can't
live apart any longer.
Sam Phillips is one of Ocala's clever
young men. During his boyhood,
which is just over, he has shown all
the qualifications of a good business
man, and made friends with all who
know him. He and his girl-bride are
for the present making their home
with Mr. Phillips' parents, Mr. and
Mrs. J. P. Phillips. The Star joins
their other friends in good wishes.

WHEN you sit behind the wheel of a. present
day Chalmers you will long remember the rare
ease of its engine.
It responds to the slightest call without effort.
At high speed you are conscious of no great activity
under the bonnet. But you roll along with a certain
comfort of mind that is comparable only when you
lag along at slow speed and note no "breaking," no
"missing," no jerky action but a quickness, a silence
that is smooth and expressive of high efficiency.
There's a story back of this. Most troubles in a
car come from vibration. In a Chalmers there is so
little vibration as to be negligible.
Its crank shaft and reciprocating parts are balanced
to a fraction of an ounce, both static and in motion."
More than this, Hot Spot vaporises the raw gaso gasoline
line gasoline into a "fog," and RamVhorn supplies each cylinder
with an even "charge."
This provides double insurance against vibration,
and generates an ease of action not o.r:en found in a
