during the frontal attack made with
superior forces and equipment by the

In recognition of his services, Gen General

knowledge of military history, be

and intelligent valor. He also paid
high tribute to the remnants of Col.

that of Nazim.

ONLY WAY OUT
A delegation of the people living
along the line of the Oklawaha Valley
were visitors to the Star Monday aft afternoon.
ernoon. afternoon. They were a little bit wrathy,
and wanted the Star to retract its re
marks about "junking" the road. We
are not yery good at retracting un unless
less unless we find that we are in the wrong
but we told these good f Aends that
they could have space in the Star for
their own side of the story, and we
eypect them to send it in, in a short
tune, and it snail nave due consiaera-
In talking to them we were im
pressed with the fact that they are
v.p against it, and stopping the trains
is a nrreat hardship. The road has
been running to Palatka ten years,
and to Burbank, Fort McCoy and Or-
aniee Springs 'a longer time. So the
people have come to depend on it a
' great deal for the shipping of their
pi oduce, logs and ties, which if the
road is suspended will' compel them
to haul a good many miles further,
That the road has run down and
become little more than a connection
between two big systems is the fault
ot the people of Ocala and Palatka,
wo (fidn't give the little road the sup support
port support it needed. ; The proper help then
vould have made the Ocala Northern
a strong local road with water con connection
nection connection at Palatka L that would have
saved Ocala its worth in freight rates
every year. But the little road wasn't
supported, so it soon dwindled to a
convenience for people who wanted to
shorten by a few hours the trip be between
tween between the East Coast and Seaboard
railways. It finally ran down to the
point where it couldn't pay expenses.
' Its managers notified those concerned
that it was going to quit. The courts
ordered its managers to keep on run running

more money to pay the men they
stopped anyhow. Then came along
- the railroad commission and put it in
the ihands of a receiver, who managed
to keep it running by using it in his
, own business. But he didn't pay his

and the road is nailed down.
Some of this fault is on the head
of our always amiable and generaUy
efficient controller. Ernest Amos. If
he had come down on the O. V. heavy
the first year it didn't pay taxes, it
probably would have paid, and not re repeated
peated repeated the offense. But its managers,
not without reason, may have thought
that if they could get by one year
they could get by every year. This
action of the controller should have
been taken just three years ago.
It has been supposed that the road
could not meet expenses without the
business of the Rodman Lumber Com
pany, but Mr. Pillans, auditor of the
road, says that of late it has made
expenses and a little over. If this
, be the case, the parties who have
- operated the road the last four years
A should be compelled to pay its back
taxes, and then have it taken out of
their hands and put in the charge of a
competent man with no strings tied to
him and given the power to make it a
good local road. It should be run for
the advantage of the people of Ocala
and Palatka, and the communities be between.

people on the line could goto Ocala
or Palatka early in the morning ana
h?ve six or at least four hours to
stay before going home.
There is a great country along that
line, with plenty of fertile land, and
if people came in a family or two at
a time and settled down to make
hornes, instead of coming by hundreds,
losing all their money and scrambling
out again, as in the days of the New
South Farm & Home Company, they
would in a few years build up a fine
strip of cultivated country for the
road to serve serve-But
But serve-But before the people can do this,
there is one thing they must do. They
must get rid of the idea that because
a railroad is a public utility it is com compelled

veuld be confiscation without compen-
sation, and that the constitution for
bids. It would put the men who
worked the roa'd in a state of peon peonage,
age, peonage, and that the law also forbids.
Several American roads that haven't
been paying expenses have been junk junked
ed junked since the war began, and the O.
V. can be done the same way. The
men that advanced the means to build
the road can by the connivance of
the state of Florida be swindled out
of their money, but they can't be com
pelled to advance any more. The
financial interests of the whole world
stand on a foundation of honest

place all the rest of the fabric pre prepares
pares prepares to prevent you from abusing it
again. If you are slick enough, you
can swindle a bank out of a few hun
dred or maybe a few thousand dollars,
but you will have to travel a long
ways' before you can swindle another
one. If the Oklawaha Valley is put in
the hands of men who the moneyed
interests are certain will make it pay
and also pay its past debts, it can
obtain money and material to make it
a good road. If it doesn't do' this it
will lay there until the rails oxidize
and the rolling stock disintegrates.
Among the delegation to the Star
Monday was one good old brother,
who was worried about the schools.
He seemed to think that if the rail railroad

its vicinity would be shut up. He
needn't worry. All of Marion county
has suffered from the tax dodgers of
the Oklawaha Valley, and all the
county will bear the loss. As long as
the schools of Ocala, Citra, Dunnellon
and other places stay open," the
schools of Burbank, Fort .McCoy and
Orange Springs are not going to be
shut. The people of that section are
having a hard time just now, but let
them stand for justice instead. of ex
pediency and their country shall
bloom as a rose.
OKLAWAHA VALLEY RAILROAD TAXES
The above are the comptroller's revised figures, making a total of
319,000. The original amount assessed an J demanded by the comptroller
was something in excess of $28,000. The court declared approximately
$9,000 of these taxes illegally assessed, which left the balance of $19,000
for the shenff to collect. rext year, the defects in the assessment will
probably be corrected so that the total ar.-.ount of taxes per year is approx approximately
imately approximately $7,000. This does not include license taxes amounting to about
)0 per year. Attention is called to the enormous special road tax in
f-ainam county, which road district is collecting more taxes from this rail
road than the total Marion county (proper) tax per year, although there is
a greater mileage of track in Marion county than in Putnam county.

This applies to all field crops. The

this fact in work with corn, oats and
sweet potatoes. It is not too late to
select seed corn in the field this fall, j
And sweet' potatoes are just begin-1

believe that such increases as have
been made with field selected sweet
potatoes ca nbe obtained, but they
are matters of authenticated record.
The Virginia truck experiment sta stations

increased yield of 40 per cent with
field selected seed. Mr. E. M. Slan Slan-son
son Slan-son of Williamsburg, Va., got an in increase

Hill plantation, 25 miles north of
Tallahassee, an increase of 50 per
cent in yield was obtained in 1919
with seed that were selected in the
field in the fall of 1918.
The writer saw these last mentioned
potatoes plowed up and measured.
There were five rows across a field
planted with draws from the selected
Porto Ricos. All the field had the
same fertilization and cultivation.
These five rows yielded as many
bushels as did the. five rows above and
the five rows below put together. In
1920 the whole crop was produced
from the potatoes from these five
rows, and was a most satisfactory
One of the strongest reasons for
