In every wet or dry, election in this county up to the present, the saloon

PAYING POLL TAXES
Early in November, as is usual before a local option election, many poll
taxes were paid. Most of these, of course, were paid first-hand. But soon
a large number began to come. in by maiL
The tax collector soon noticed that the envelopes containing these taxes
were addressed in only two or three handwritings, and had other marks of
coming from other parties than the voters whose polls they professed to pay.:
He sent out deputies who in a short time secured affidavits from men
whose polls had been sent in that they did not send their polls by mail, that
they had either not paid, or had paid their taxes themselves at other times,
cr were exempt from paying. Some of the voters whose polls were thus
sent in are dead, others have left the county.
STRONG EVIDENCE AGAINST THE SALOONS

IN THE WRONG CROWD
In this issue of the Star appears a
communication from Mr. J. N. Sim Simmons
mons Simmons of Sparr, which should appeal
to a number of good men, who from
c mistaken idea of principle and a
mistaken view of some other- things,
will vote wet.
These citizens are as good men as
any but they are in the wrong crowd.
If the liquor business was simply
the buying and selling of liquor if
the saloons did nothing but sell to
men what whisky they wanted it
would not be so very bad, tho at the
best, it would be bad enough.
But everything that is bad is drawn
to the saloon businesses flies are
drawn to a garbage heap.
In the coming election of Dec. 7, the
wets are not depending on the opinion
of their fellow citizens. They are not
depending on a free ballot and a fair
count. ,They are spending-money to
pervert the minds of voters and to
buy vote? appealing to one of man's
basest passions to keep themselves in
business. The money has not even
the feeble virtue of coming from the
saloon keepers of Ocala the other otherwise
wise otherwise good men who have some right
to believe they are fighting to keep
the wolf from their doors but from
the whisky makers and sellers of the
north, who would barter Marion coun county,
ty, county, acre for acre, for the same amount
of real estate in-hell if they cpuld
make money by the transaction.'
So, we say to certain of our friends,
men whom we esteem and trust, and
who we have reason -to believe like
and trust the Star,
"You are in the wrong crowd. But
' it isn't too late for you to join the
right one. ;
"You stand shoulder to shoulder
with the Star in other good works for
Ocala and Marion county come and
vote with it next Tuesday."
" It is to be i curetted that Secretary
, " o
Rooney could -not attend-the national
conference on marketing and farm
credits which convened at the Hotel
Sherman, Chicago, from Nov. 29th to
TJec. 2nd. He was appointed by Gov.
Trammell to represent the state of
Florida at this meeting but unfortun unfortunately
ately unfortunately no funds were provided to cover
expenses of such delegates. This con conference
ference conference has to do with one of the most
vital subjects confronting our nation
and some of the country biggest
men are in attendance at the meeting.
' It is" to be hoped that Senator Flet Fletcher's

members will be enacted at the pre s s-entjsession,

POLL TAXES OF 1913-14
ARE SUFFICIENT
A gentlemen who came in from the
northwest of the county today says
that many people out that vay labor
under the mistaken impression that
unless their 1915 poll taxes are paid,
they cannot vote in the wet or dry
election.
Such an opinion is erroneous. All
citizens who have paid their polls for
1913 and 1914 can vote. Taxes of
1915 are not due yet.

IT DID NOT PAN OUT
There was a meeting, called by the.
wets, of colored people in the third
ward the other night, but it didn't
pan out as expected.
A good many of the colored people
of that ward have good homes and
are trying to keep them good, have
good businesses and are trying to sup support
port support their churches and schools. They
naturally have no use for the saloon.
The meeting began to go. very much
the wrong way, (or rather the right
way) and the promoters hurriedly
adjourned it. ;
The colored people ought to vote
dry. Whisky is even more their en enemy

ed; noted; the other unnoted.
-The noted one was Upshaw. He
came to work for prohibition. He
came in broad daylight," to work in
the sunshine and the full blaze of the
electric light to be seen and heard
by all men. He had nothing to be
ashamed of or to conceal, and many
things to proclaim.
The other was a man imported by
the wets. We can't tell his name he
and his friends or rather his em employershave
ployershave employershave kept it concealed. He
makes no speeches, or if he does, he
makes them to little knots of
men behind closed doors. He is do doing
ing doing gumshoe work. Of course he is
doing this work among the more ig ignorant
norant ignorant and debased of the population,
for they are the only ones among
whom this work can be done. And
gumshoe work is always firmly
wedded to bribery and lying.

BRINGING IN WOOD

THERE'S PLENTY TO BURN
Up in the mountains of North Geor
gia, it used to be the custom it may
be now that when a young man was
sitting up to a girl,' and came to see
her of a Sunday evening in cool weath
er, if she liked him she would keep the
fire burning; if she disliked him she
would let it go out. She had other
ways of encouragement and discour discouragement
agement discouragement in warm weather, but of
these we will not now speak.
One young lady, whose front name
was Sally, was desired by an young
man whose friends called him John
John was a good boy and well able
to take care of a wife, but Sally did
not like him, just because she didn't,
which is a way of thinking peculiar
to nearly all girls and a great many
boys.
John came to see Sally one Sunday
evening in the chill November. They
sat in the best room, and Sally was
about to let the fire go out, when
John heaped on some more wood, and
stayed and talked until such time for
all good young men to go home.
' The next Sunday night John came
again. Sally was expecting him, and
was careful to have no wood in the
wood-box. "When the fire began to go
down, John went out to the wood-pile
and brought' in an armful of fuel, re renewed
newed renewed the blaze and again stayed his
time out.
The next Saturday Sally persuaded
her brothers to move the wood-pile.
The following evening John appeared
on schedule time. "When the fire was
about to go out, John went out and, not
finding the wood-pile, stayed out. Sal
iy smiled to herself she had at last,
she thought, rid herself of him.
But the next Sunday evening, there
was the regular knock at the front
door, and when'Sally opened it, there
stood John with an armful of wood,
and on the walk behind him was a
wheelbarrow piled with sticks cut to
the right length. So she married
John to get rid of him.
The prohibitionists of Marion coun county
ty county are bringing in wood. The wood-boT
has failed them and the wood-pile has
failed them, but there' is plenty of
wood in the woods, and they can and
will bring it until Marion county says
yes. If not in 1915, in 1917 or 1919
there will be no rest for the wicked
until the bad place freezes or Marion
goes dry.
Let all sensible men vote dry and
put an end to this semi-annual agi agitation.
tation. agitation. J '. '-
A man who has good boys who have
been well trained should not forget
on election day the boys who .are ex exposed
posed exposed to temptation. Vote dry.
When you can ram the contents of
a half -pint bottle into a half -gill

SIMMONS AGAINST SALOONS
Editor Star: I think, I know, the
open saloon and liquor traffic is the
worst evil that confronts us today.
It ruins, blights, curses and damns
more people than any other one thing
in existence. I don't see how any man,
more especially men with families,
can "conscientiously vote a wet ticket,
but we have some men that are
church members and call themselves
Christians that line themselves up
with the liquor men.
. -There was a boy. who had a little
red bull yearling. He thought more
of Red than anything in the world.
So when the time came to divide the
cattle between the children, his broth brothers,
ers, brothers, knowing how much he thought
of the red bull, and wanting the best
part of the stock themselves, picked
out all the sorry, runty, inferior cat cattle
tle cattle and put them in a pen with the
red bull; and the choice cattle they
put in pens to themselves. They
thought that Johnny thought so much
of Red that he would take the pen
with Red and the scrubs. So they
said to Johnny:
"The cattle are divided; you take
your choice of the pens and we will
be satisfied."
Johnny went and looked at the cat cattle
tle cattle and going to the pen that Red was
in he put his arms around the bull's
neck and hugged and kissed him and
said:
"Red, I love you better than any anything
thing anything in the world, but I don't like
your crowd and we will have to part."
So if you are lined up with the
liquor men you are in the wrong
crowd. Come out from among them
and be separated; line yourselves up
with the prohibitionists, with God and
the right.
I saw a drunk man once that had
been drunk till he was all over in a
quiver; could hardly live, and he rais raised
ed raised himself up and got another glass
of liquor and holding it up he said:
"This is hell, death, destruction and
damnation."
This language coming from a
drunken man made an impression on
me IH never forget.
I think it is a shame on any com community
munity community to have men that are in favor
of liquor in office; If there is any set
of men that ought to be dry it is the
officers of the law. However, I think
we have the best showing for a dry
county we have ever had, and I once
more beg and urge the people of Mar Marion
ion Marion county to line up and let's rid
this county of this hellish evil. And
when our primary election comes let's
try and put men in office that are pro prohibition
hibition prohibition men. J. N. Simmons.

THE
DIAMOND FROM
THE SKY

At these words Klair, burst into a;
rage. They shall never have that". j
he cried fiercely. ."The Powell '-ml! j
Hons, made in oil or mines, are just asj
any other dirty money to me: But the
diamond from the sky belongs to the
Stanleys alone. It came from no hu- j
man band, but fell from the stars in. a
molten meteor, born of a miracle to
our adventurer ancestor. If a Jiundred
lives stand in my way the diamond
shall never be the vulgar swag of
thieves, cut up to be made marketable
and hawked through the jewel marts
of the, world." 2
Vivian threw her arms around him.
"Blair," she cried, "they -must never
-have the diamond! I would suffer mjr
self to be cut to bits rather than it
should meet a shameful fate like thatT"
And these two looked into each oth other's
er's other's eyes and understood and trusted
each other fully, for they both re remembered
membered remembered the night of the Randolph
ball the first time in a generation the
diamond from the sky had blazed upon
the breast of a fair woman, and that
woman was Vivian Marston! In many
things they could and would be the ac accomplices
complices accomplices of the suave Durand, the
king of diamonds; and the rest of "the
pack," but the diamond from the sky
was the Stanley heritage, and, base
as Blair was, his honor, rooted in dis dishonor,
honor, dishonor, stood. He would have died a
thousand deaths ere the diamond
should be partitioned and debased, and
yet he would have clasped it with a
kiss, whole and priceless, around the
neck of the woman he loved. That
was the Stanley way.

"The big blowoff" of Santley's stu stupendous
pendous stupendous circus, as its proprietor would
say, was undoubtedly La Belle, the
Lady of Lions. Splinters, the -clown,
was a big hit too. But La Belle's act
with the fierce great Nubian lion
Lancelot was the "blowoff." It was
the last act on the bill and sent the
crowds away thrilled and satisfied.
Of herself La Belle was new to the
show this season, and Splinters was
her husband. She was bold and hand handsome,
some, handsome, and Splinters, the clown, was
tormented with many a bitter pang of
Jealousy through her coquetries to
mildly describe it.
Sam Santley, proprietor of Santley's
stupendous circus, was what was
known as a working boss. Through
devious ways luck at gambling and
by the exercise of sharp practices-he
had gained his way from card shark
to ownership of a show" that bore his
name. Santley personally supervised
his own show from big top to cook
tent. He acted as ringmaster and an announcer
nouncer announcer when the star acts were on.
When Sam Santley published his call
for show people in the amusement
journals there was one line that :. al always
ways always was in the advertising. This line
read: "Boozers and chasers do not
write. You will not last a minute.
Translated from circus jargon this
Delphic utterance meant that drunk
ards and male flirts need not endeavor
to join with Santley's circus. The reason-of
this was that Sam Santley at attended
tended attended to all these matters of Bacchus
and Venus himself.
He sold beer to the "grafters" and
"kinkers" and "razorbacks" that is.
the sure thing gamblers and pickpock pickpockets,

ley Santley also monopolized J he fair. Woe to
any of his circus people who trans
gressed the bounds of strict morality
with his show! But with himself it
was another matter, and Sam Santley
looked with longing eyes on La Belle.

The show had reached Los Angeles.
playing up through Lower California
and the Texas border. Business looked
good, and Sam Santley himself walked
from the performers entrance of the
big top highly pleased with himself and
the world in general. In the perform
ers' entrance La Belle, the Lady of
Lions, had given him a smile. Splin
ters, the clown, had seen It, and his
face had contorted in jealous hatred
under his bismuth makeup. Then Sam
Santley had strode to the "privilege"
tent, where his advertising men and
the followers of the cireus generally
met for social converse when "on the
lot." When the performance was go

for the grinders, door talkers and shil shil-labars.

All these things paid Sam Santley. He
sold the bottled beer at a profit, and no
temporary game of craps was so short
but what the official "pass picker"
swept in Mr. Santley's percentage.
At the entrance .of the "privilege"

We re-print below an article from

the Salyerville (Ky.) Herald compli

menting Dr. Carney. Mimms. Dr.
Mimms is a nephew and namesake of
Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Carney and is well

known here. He, his wife and mother,

Mrs. B. W. Mimms, who have visited

in this city at the Carney home, are
now in Louisville to stay until Christ Christmas,
mas, Christmas, going thence to Trenton; Pem Pembroke
broke Pembroke and Elkton, Ky., to spend the

Yuletide witn relatives. Dr. Mimms
has recentlybeen offered by Dr.

Broad a large sanitarium in Louis Louisville
ville Louisville and if he accepts the practice he

will enter upon his work the first of

the year.

The article is as follows:
Dr. Carney Mimms, the able and. ef

ficient doctor whom the Rockefeller
Institute has sent out, has examined

800 patients up to this time and finds
that over 350 have hookworm. No
doubt if the people have taken ad van-'

tage of Dr. Mimms lectures and ex examinations
aminations examinations in the communities which

he has visited, they will be worth

more to them than can be estimated
in dollars and cents, as Dr. Mimms is
one of the best physicians in the state,
notwithstanding he is a young man in
years, but with that careful training
from several of the : best medical
schools that, this country affords, and
his untiring pluck and industry, plac placed
ed placed him at the head of his profession,
which mark of ability brought him his
present position, as the Rockefeller
Institute only sends out men of ability
and qualifications. Dr. Mimms in his
lectures does not confine himself to
one subject, but gives interesting
talks on many ills and deals with the
infant and follows it to mature age,
telling how to take care of ourselves,
and how to prevent diseases which are
so prevalent in this country. We
venture that a few vigorous cam campaigns
paigns campaigns like the one Dr., Mimms has
conducted throughout Eastern Ken

tucky, if the people will only heed,

we will finally eradicate the many

diseases. The Herald takes the liberty
to speak these words for Dr. Mimms,

which he so well deserves, knowing

him personally, and listening to his
valuable and enlightening talks we
