CHANGE THE CHARTER
The Star regrets to have to say that
its opinion it will be best for the
people of this city to get together and
, change the charter back to the old
two-alderman to a ward system, with
piovision to employ a city manager
if a council of that size sees fit.
The five men on a council form is
proving a failure. The city is worse
governed now than for years. The
reason why is that five men are more
likely than nine to resolve themselves
into an autocracy. Our council, com composed
posed composed as it is of honest men, is, like
any other small group of men in
power too likely to be paternal, and
more likely to think it should do what
it wants to do than do what it thinks
the people want it to do. An instance
of this is the way it has evaded the
law on the most important feature of
the charter city manager. There
have been other instances the latest,
the Osceola avenue proposition.
The streets of a town belong to the
people of the town are primarily in intended
tended intended for them to travel on. It is
necessary to run railroad tracks on
seme of the streets; it is necessary to
build spur tracks out to factories and
warehouses. But this should always
be done by consent of the people and
with their lull knowledge oi what is
being done; and whenever it is at
tempted in the residence part oi a
town it always evokes a strong and
generally a successful protest.
The people of the second ward and
the town generally did not know of
the proposition to put another switch
and spur track on Osceola avenue
right on the most traveled part of the
street. Of course the council did not
conceal the proposition from them,
but it did not inform them of it.
And the council knew very well there
would be a protest if the people did
When the sidetrack from Oklawaha
avenue to Second street was laid near nearly
ly nearly twenty years ago, all the town
knew about it and the matter was dis discussed
cussed discussed for some weeks. It was recog recognized
nized recognized as a matter of public benefit,
there was no particular opposition to
it, and so the council gave permission.
This sidetrack, even if it was useless,
would not be any of the danger and
trouble to the people that the propos-
Jed spur will be. It runs alongside the
1 1ai V
main line, and the two leave enough
room on the other side for two autos
or wagons to pass.
The spur that it is proposed to put
in will cut diagonally across the
street. It will make the worst kind
ci a crossing, as the wheels oi a car
or wagon will hit it at an angle first
one wheel will strike and then the
other, instead of both at the same
time. On a rainy day, it will make a
car likely to skid, and a car that skids
at that point is going to get into trou
ble, particularly if a train should be
passing. It will make the Second street
crossing, already a bad one, worse,
aading a third track to the two al
ready across it.
This stretch of street is one of the
city and county's most important
thoroughfares. People coming from
down Orange avenue and the neigh
borhood in that direction have been
coming in and going out that way for
forty years or more. Several thousand
travel over it every week. If this
track is put in they will have to
change their route considerably, add adding

Several years ago the council re
fused to allow the Coast Line to un
load freight at the John Dozier ware
house on the other side of the street.
But the danger and inconvenience of
having freight cars on that sidetrack
would be little in comparison with
putting in another switch and run
mng a spur tracK ciaeonaiiy across
And the switch where will that be
put? It can't be put anywhere along
there without making danger and in inconvenience

and on wheels.
Some people talk about how per
fectly all right everything will be if
the street is paved with brick. Is any
body silly enough to suppose the Coast
Line is gomg to pave that part of the
street, or any part of the street, un
iess it is compelled to r Ana who is
going to compel it. Since the Coast
Line took charge of the road, there
has been only one council that would
make the Coast Line do anything.

Mr. Simmons is alderman from the
second ward. He was not on the
council when the deal the Star com complains
plains complains of was made. He says the
street will not be massacred if he can
help it. The mayor is also opposed to
it, and its the Star's opinion that the
project will be put to sleep.
And because of this, and some other
things, its the Star's opinion that the
charter had better be changed back to
the old form. Its a d
j for five men than nine to get together
and put things over. Of course, the
five men always think they are acting
for the best and sometimes they are.
But its mighty easy for them not to
act for the best and the people not
find out until too late. It was not for
nothing that a wise man of old said,

The part that fine steels play
There is a definite reason for the brilliant performance of
a Maxwell car.
Lift the bonnet and you see the simplest of engines. Examine
clutch and gears, and you see supreme simplicity.
The definite reason for Maxwell performance and, endurance is
the fine steels, those steels built to Maxwell's own formulas, that
combine quality and rare strength, that defy time and the repairman.
This is the story of the Maxwell, the real cause for brilliant
performance and long endurance. These steels do not burden
the engine. They make its tasks easier. They flatten out a hill
for the engine.
The combination of light weight and great strength the ideal
of Maxwell construction is thus achieved.
And to obtain that rare combination of strength with quality
means costly steels. So you will find that, pound for pouna1, the
steels in a Maxwell equal those in any car built.
That is why the rise of Maxwell lias been so marked; why
nearly 400,000 have been built ; why 100,000 are being constructed
this year; why these will fill but 60 of the demand.

FARM NOTES BY
THE COUNTY AGENT
That the corn weevil can be easily
controlled in the cribs has been thor-
jouhly demonstrated in Marion county.
Las fall a campain was carried on
against this pest and most satisfac satisfactory
tory satisfactory results obtained. Numbers of
farmers made their cribs tight, re rebuilt
built rebuilt new ones, and fumigated with
j carbon bisulphide. The treatment .va '.
elrective in every case and kilku the
weevils just in proportion as the
cribs were tight. If the cri was 50
t pei cent tight, the remedy was effec
tive to the same degree. Where the
crib was almost air-tight, all of the
wtevils were killed.
This treatment i:s so cheap and :so
easily applied that it is foolish to a'.-
j lew such a large part of the corn to
j be annually ruined. Those who iiay
i may nave tnea it iasi tali ari'i tailed
to obtain the best results, and' those
who may doubt the effectiveness of
thi3 method of controlling the weevil,
should visit the farms whore its
value has been demonstrated and net
the condition of the corn at the
present time. Without trying to give
a complete list of those who applied
this remedy successfully, wTe mention
Messrs. J. C. Johnson, A. S. Pickett,
H. L. Shearer, W. M. Gist and J. L.
Too many hogs are sold before they
are ready for the market, and usually
the reason is the lack of feed. If pre preparations
parations preparations are not made between now
and August to grow the fattening
feeds, it will be too late to put them
in this year. Careful planning of the
ci ops for hog feed should be made at
once. The difference in price of good
heavy hogs and good light hogs makes
it important to be sure that plenty of
feed is provided to properly fatten the
In this connection, very few farm farmers
ers farmers realize how much more profitable
it is to market a heavy hog than a
light one. They lose sight of the fact
that the additional weight is not all
the gain. In considering whether it
will pay to feed a 100-pound hog un until
til until it weighs 165 pounds, they fail to
see that there is an extra profit on
the 100 pounds. For instance, a 100-p:-und
hog at 10 cents is worth $10.
If the same hog is made to weigh 165
pounds it is worth $21.45 at 13 cents
a pound. Not only has there been re received
ceived received 13 cents a pound for the added
65 pounds, but also $3 more for the
original 100 pounds that the hog
weighed. In other words, the gain
of 65 pounds has brought a little
more than 17 2-5 cents a pound. If
pork can, and it should, be- produced
a. 8 cents a pound, then there is a
profit of 9 3-5 cents a pound, or $6.24
on the extra 65 pounds.
So long as there is a difference of
2 to 4 cents between the price of
light hogs and heavy hogs, it will pay
to feed the light hog of fair quality
until it will weigh at least 165
It is a settled thing that the Mar Marion
ion Marion County Fair will be held this year
and the date is set for Thanksgiving
week. With this much notice, there
i every reason to expect the largest
and most complete display of the
county's resources that has ever been
seen in Ocala. Every farmer should
plan right now to save an exhibit
ficm every good crop that grows on
hi3 place this year and put it away
for good keeping until the fair. There
is no better way to get ready for the
fair than to select the choice speci specimens
mens specimens of each crop as it matures and
place them where light, insects and
rats cannot damage them. It is un unfair

community to have to jerk up what whatever

order not to fail to be represented at

THE CHURCH AT SEA
Easter Services Were Held Wherever
There was a Vessel of
the U. S. Navy
The mother who was fearful lest
her son, who was contemplating en enlisting
listing enlisting in the navy would not be able
to get ashore every Sunday to attend
church, plainly showed her surprise
when told that there was a chaplain
aboard every ship in the fleet and that
services were held at least once a
week. Many people like the anxious
mother, believe that the only time
that the sailorman goes "to church is
when he is ashore. Few understand
the very important part the church
and the chaplain play in the sailor's
life aboard ship. Men who haven't
attended church for years in civil life,
will, after enlisting in the navy, net
only become members of the church
aboard ship but also of the Bible
classes and various clubs taht are the
results of the chaplains' activities.
Chaplains of every denomination
are in the fleet. No matter to which
church the sailorman belongs, he can
always be sure of attending his serv service
ice service on Sunday. Usually the services
are held in one of the gunrooms, which
arc decorated and arranged by the
sailors previous to the service. Hymn
books and prayer books are furnished
by the navy department and-the music
for the service is furnished by the
ship's orchestra. During the divine
service smoking or loud talking is not
permitted anywhere on the ship. The

The chaplain enjoys the confidence 01 J
ali the men and they come to him with y
their troubles, whatever they may be.
A chaplain has often been known to
go down in his pocket and supply
money to men who were in financial
difficulty or who needed money for re relief
lief relief at home. The chaplain's door :s
open to the sailors at all hours and
the men are urged to talk with him
The chaplain's duty is more than
the mere holding of services on Sun Sunday;
day; Sunday; it is the real-man job of the
ship. He is usually a good baseball
player, boxes, cheer-leader, in fact
he is the promoter of most of the
good times aboard ship and is always
on the look-out for some new scheme
to keep the boys happy and contented.
A chaplain is indispensible to the crew
of a warship.
A story typical of the naval chap-
lains, serving with the naval forces,
who had disregarded orders and gone
up to the front line trenches. Just as
the attack was about to commence,
the chaplain looked over to the Ger German

"Ego te absolvo." Then he said to the
men about them, "I've absolved them
