FRANK J. HUBER
In yesterday's Star we announced
the death of Mrs. Frank J.-tferi We
were mistaken; it is Mr. Hubrwho is
dead. A rather indistinct message

While we are glad that Mrs. Huber
13 yet alive, we haye gained but little,
for we are greatly saddened to hear
of the death of her husband.
Frank Huber dwelt among us a
dozen years and was a good' citizen.
He was postmaster for four years and
occupied the scarcely less onerous and
public position of A. C. L. agent for
several other years.
He was strictly an honest man and
a kindly one, doing everything in his
power for his friends and also for the
many strangers who came in contact
with him during his official duties. He
was a quiet man, but men and women
had no difficulty in picking him out in
a throng as one they could turn to
for advice and assistance.
He died Sunday, at Cannelton, Ind.

The Star joins the many friends of
Mrs. Huber in sympathy for the death
of the husband to whom she "was. a
loving, wife and assiduous helper.

W2 have corrected them. We could

We have no personal ill will against
Van Swearingen. Our first knowledge
of him came from the Jacksonville
streetcar strike a number of years
ago. The street car men were very
badly treated, and not only the people
of Jacksonville, but those of Ocala
. and, we, believe, the entire state, sym
pathized with them. Van Swearingen
was then city judge of Jacksonville,
and it seemed to us that he was the
only official that gave the strikers

at the time, and have no desire to

was his neglect of the boys' school at
Marianna. It was part of his work
to look after it, and he was strong
and influential enough to have put a
stop to the abuses there in a few
weeks after his first visit to it. That
he should tell the people, about it at
once is one of the things that we
would have expected of him.
Since he was elected in 1918, he has
taken a most disproportionate part cf
hiz time traveling around the state
laying his wires for the governor's
office. His conduct in this regard is
scandalous. He had no right to draw
a salary from the state while trying
to promote his own interests.
Also, he has allowed himself to be
considered the candidate of a class a
class that has made war on and
grc atly injured the public. We don't
suppose that Van, if elected, will try
to override the law in favoring this
class; but he allows it and the pub!ic

thing to all men, and not any old
thing to any man. We believe he :s
' the man "the state needs for governor

MR. BLOWERS' ANSWER
Editor Star: Replying to the ar
tide, "Questions for a Candidate,"
appearing in last evening's Star,
wish to say in the first place, Mr.
Editor, it seems it is only fair to me
that you give the name of the author
With the exception of possibly the
irst paragraph, I do not believe it is

is lacking in the good form you usu
ally use, by which your readers can
readily recognize your writing. Why
make the question personal ? Why not
ask all legislative candidates the same
Now, regarding the proposed
amendment and the questions you
ask. I am of the opinion that the lan

per cent, of the total assessed valua valuation

tht, amendment carry, a bond issue
could be provided for by the next against the measure
opinion oi the legislature does not
coincide with that of those who know
it better than he does that it will
spend every cent the law allows it to.
He says he will oppose any bill for
bonding the state that will increase
the present tax rate, but the reader
wiii observe that nowhere has he said
the bill was good or bad. Possibly
this evasion was unintentional, but
he has made it, all the same.
His other remarks on the subject
seem like he was throwing up a
smoke screen. For instance, he asks
who wrote the latter part of the Star's
article. We wrote it, and we don't j
think Mr. Blowers can find anybody!
well acquainted with the Star who
thinks some one else wrote it. Oar
linotype operator, who is our literary
critic, can testify that there was no
improvement in language in the la3t
paragraphs over the first one; ako,
that it was written on our own dilap dilapidated
idated dilapidated typewriter, which nobody else
in town can use. We daresay the
whole thing was lacking in good form.
Form is something that we do not

Another cloud of Mr. Blowers'
smoke screen is shown in his assertion
that the editor of the Star is a mem
ber of the association the same as he
is. and his question why said editor
was not present to speak and vote
We fear Mr.
should be. Unless it differs greatly
from the general run of such bodies,
the automobile association was made
up of representatives from the var various
ious various motor clubs of the state. No one

resolution was presented by one of
Ocala's citizens, and it was seconded
by another. I put the question and
asked for discussion. I felt that the

The bill is in the interest of the

United States, who are among the
slickest manipulators of legislatures
in the country. Alongside these auto

advised Gov. Catts of a plan by which
the state tax may be reduced 1 mill,
but it is doubtful that his reverence

may possibly reduce the county tax a
mill or two, but the school board is
preparing to stack on us that addi

And now on top of all this our dear

In announcing myself as a candidate for
Superintendent of Public Instruction of
Marion county, I wish first to thank the peo- -pie
for their many past favors to me, and I
again pledge myself to the best interests
of the county and especially the schools.
I find the schools in a condition requiring
serious consideration! While we have a
number of good schools and many excellent
teachers, the school interest as a whole in
the county is low. When the schools opened
last fall, we lacked at least fifty white
teachers' of having a supply and finally
about fifteen schools had to wait until other
schools were taught before teachers could
be secured. This waiting is demoralizing.
Before these schools can open, pupils and
patrons are completely discouraged and in interest

We have many teachers in the county en entirely

and without experience.

us on account of the great war, and rapid

wages in other professions and the lack of

could almost double their salaries at almost

As I see it there are only two ways to
secure better teachers; one is to pay higher
salaries for trained teachers, and the other
is to be.tter train the teachers we have. Both
these methods can and should be worked.
We should create a school interest through throughout
out throughout the county; we should select our teach teachers
ers teachers early and have, if possible, all schools in
operation at the same time. We should
devise some plan to aid our weaker teachers
with onr stronger ones.
We should eliminate all unnecessary fads
and teach only necessary and practical
studies and ideas. We should cut out all
unnecessary expenses and force the state
to do the same. We are wasting enough in

Disease Carrying Insects Everywhere
Mosquitoes have always been with
us but their true character has only
been recognized a short time. They
are carriers of malaria germs and
other deadly diseases. Dr. Carroll, a
government investigator in Cuba says
"Natural yellow fever is transmitted
by the mosquito and always and only
by the mosquito."
The mosquito bite is often as dead deadly
ly deadly as a rattlesnake's.
By every method known to mankind
both the national and local health
services are trying to exterminate the
mosquito. But this will never be.
We must protect ourselves against
this pest, by proper screening and the
use of TORMENT. TORMENT is a
gaseous vapor in which no mosquito
or fly can live. It is. death to insects.
Torment is sold by druggists, gen general

inces provinces have one congressman for every
62.500 voters. I reach this estimate
in the following manner : In the United
States we estimate that there Is one

This calculation is based upon male

fixed at twenty-one years. In Russia
both men and women have the suf

ods. methods. The provision was written to
meet a situation. It has a purpose.
Lenlne has frequently written and
spoken about the "poor peasants." He
can be forgiven for overworking the
phcase. The "poor peasants" make
up the great bulk of the population of
Russia. It is not bad politics, al although
though although it smacks of demagogy, to
speak often and sympathetically of
the "suffering poor," particularly when
the "poor peasants" make up the ma majority

successful politicians owe their
offices to this appeal. In Russia
over 80 per cent ef the people live on
the land over four-fifths of all the
Russians are peasants. Less than one one-fifth

the number. You will note the ratio I

It is 25,000 in the city, as against
125,000 In the country ; in the regional
congress it is 5,000 voters of the city

wondering how Lenlne hit upon the

Rqssla between city dwellers and
"poor peasants," which is about five
to one? It is not difficult to guess the
reason for this action. Any American
ward politician could furnish the ex explanation

experience proves that a political ma machine

chines machines have never been popular in the
country districts. The soviet form of
government is a political machine. The

disfranchising the "poor peasants."
