For 6000 feet more than a mile-

typical Southern California highway

In the evening with power shut off

NO MORE LIQUOR ADS.
The business management of the
Star has decided that, as soon as all
present contracts are out, or can be
canceled, it will exclude all liquor
advertisements from its pages.
The Star decides on this policy at
considerable financial sacrifice. The
double event of the result of the wet
or dry election, and the approach of
the Christmas season, ensures us a
considerable amount of lucrative ad
vertising.
With no liquor houses in Marion
county, this paper could take in more
than a thousand dollars revenue from
the liquor mail order houses of Jack Jacksonville,
sonville, Jacksonville, Tampa and the north during
the next twelve months, as there will
be a veritable harvest of thi3 class of
advertising now for the paper that
will take it.
The wholesale liquor houses pay
the highest rates and settle their
bills promptly. The copy for several
such advertisements has already been
sent in, and as long as Marion county
remains dry, this paper, if it prints
whisky ads., is insured of a consid
erable and steady revenue from that
source. The fact that the paper de denounces
nounces denounces the liquor traffic makes no
difference with the whisky dealers. In
fact, it rather makes it more valuable
to them.
. However, it does not seem consis consistent
tent consistent to the Star that a Marion coun county
ty county paper, especially one that upholds
prohibition, should publish such ad advertisements,
vertisements, advertisements, so as soon as it can fill
or cancel the contracts on hand, it will
cut that sort of business from its
books.
The Star feels that, having closed
the saloons in Marion county, the vic
tory for prohibition would be only
about half won, if every time its
thousands of readers picked up the
paper they would be stared in the
face by a big advertisement from a
mail order liquor house, offering them
tempting drinks at tempting prices,
with the easy delivery at their doors
of the modern transportation meth methods.
ods. methods. In doing this the Star is doing just
what it did when it took the dry side
in the recent campaign. It is going
ahead of its support. It is depending
on the revenue drawn from its entire
business to support a particular
cause; a good many -of the adherents
of the said cause being rather slack
in everything except words in sup supporting
porting supporting the Star.
Let us take, for instance, several of
our business houses, the proprietors
of whom believe in prohibition, and
have praised the paper for its work
on the dry side. For over a year,
they have given it little or no adver advertising
tising advertising or job work; indeed, in spite of
the fact that they instigate us to de
nounce mail order houses, some of
them have sent a good deal of their
job printing out of town. In short;
if "this paper had not by sheer hard
work won for itself a circulation
among the people and a footing -in
the business world in general, Ocala
would not have a daily carrying press
dispatches, and the prohibition party
of Marion county wouldn't have had
a fighting organ in the recent cam
paign.
The Star is not a beggar, and it
doesn't want anything but legitimate
business. It has never had any rich
friends, nor any official teat to swing
to. It has earned every dollar it ever
received, thousands it has never re
ceived, and has to almost fight for
some of those it obtains.. But it
thinks it has a right to all the adver
tising our business .men can give it,
and it knows it can give value receiv
ed. It has the biggest circulation in
city and county, and the people who
take it read it and put faith in what
they see in it. If our business men
give it plenty of advertising, and en enable
able enable it to enlarge, it will not only
give them individual returns, but
every copy that goes abroad will ad
vertise the prosperity and solidity of
Ocala and Marion county as no other
medium can do.-
As for the prohibitionists among
our business men, prohibition means
as much toevery one of them as to
the Star. We think we have a right
to ask them thatt they have a3 much
faith and make at least half as much
sacrifice as we do. They have a com comrade's
rade's comrade's duty to help fill the gaps in our
advertising columns and show that
they are willing to prove their- faith
by their works.

Meeting of the Marion County Edu

cational Association
The December meeting of the Mar

ion County Educational Association

was held Saturday at the high school.

In the absence of the president,

Miss Isabel Mays, principal of the

Dunnellon high school, Prof. E. H.

Miller of Mcintosh, presided.

The most important business wasj

the annual election of officers, which

resulted as follows: President, Miss

Nellie Stevens; vice president, Mr.

Robert Connor; second vice president,
Mrs. H. S. Wesson; secretary and

treasurer. Miss Minnie Lee Carlisle;

eecutive committee, Miss Elizabeth

Mizelle, Miss Agnes Crago and Miss
Ethel Robinson; program committee,
Prof. Cassels, Prof. Flanders of the
Fairfield school and Miss Frances
Ramsey of the Griner Farm school.
Heretofore the meetings have all
been held in this city but hereafter
they will be held at various schools
in the county, the January one tak taking
ing taking place at Fairfield on the 8th.
Miss Mays has made the associa

tion a most competent president and

her place will be ably filled by Miss
Stevens.

Miss Victoria Raysor left this
morning for Jacksonville, to consult

the specialist who is curing her injur

ed eye. She will probably return to

morrow. Miss Raysor. has to wear a

bandage over her right eye, and is not
allowed to use the left for reading or
anything else that will cause the least

strain, lest it should set up a sympa

thetic irritation in the other, but she

suffers no pain, and the specialist

assures her that full recovery is only

a matter of time. When in Jackson

ville, Miss Raysor makes her home

with Miss Susie Collins in Riverside

Miss Collins is the daughter of the

departed "Sandspur Philosopher" Col

lins, who in spite of the lapse of years

yet has an honored place in the mem

ories of many Marion county people.

Miss Collins is now one of Jackson
ville's most efficient trained nurses.

Mrs. Marion D. Harris has returned
from Gainesville, and is again making

her home with Mr. and Mrs. B. B

Baum. Mrs. Harris doesn't think

there is any place like Ocala.

Tavares now boasts of a woman's

club. The new club has an enroll

ment of thirty-nine enthusiastic

members, and the president, -Mrs.

Minus Miller, has already made ap

plication for its recognition in the fed

eration.

Gainesville, the former a nephew of

Mrs. W. K. Zewadski and Mrs. Walter

THE POSSUM
PARTY
By M. QUAD
I Copyright, 1915, by the McClure
Newspaper Syndicate.
Last month the following colored
geutlemeu and politicians met at Para Paradise
dise Paradise hall in response to a circular let
ter from Brother Gardner:
Judge Persimmon Longbody of Ten
nessee, who held the office of constable
once for thirty days and knows how
good it is.
Colonel Cabiff Rocky of Kentucky,
who sweeps out the postoffice in Louis Louisville,
ville, Louisville, but had far rather be postmas postmaster.
ter. postmaster. Brassbound Johnson of Maryland,
who has ied his cohorts against many
a melon patch and will again, by thun thunder!
der! thunder!
Major Bloker of Ohio, who says that
taking a chicken off the roost without
a squawk is an art.
' Several other delegates were to be
on hand, but the constable rallied in
force and drove them back.
Brother Gardner stated that the
meeting was for the purpose of put
ting a presidential ticket in the field at
an early date and the party would be
called "the Possum party." The mat
ter was thoKTughly discussed and set
tled, and there was an adjournment to
a later date.
There was a mighty gathering at
Paradise hall Saturday evening, and.
acting on the suggestion of Brothel
Gardner, about fifty members had
brought their wives with them. It had
been announced on the bulletin board
that the Hon. Crabtree Jones of Ala
bama would deliver a political speech.
and the audience was ready to give
him an enthusiastic greeting. He ap
reared promptly at the hour named
and was introduced by the president
amid vociferous applause.
"Respectable fellow citizens," began
the orator as "he got his feet planted on
the proper spot, -"two weeks ago dar
was a-bornin in di famous hall which
has made "talk fur -10,000,000 people
It was de bornin- of a new" political
party. ;
"My fr'en's, I had bin waitin thirty
y'ars fur de dawn of freedom. I hev
bin waitin' thirty y'ars fur de birth of
de Possum party.
"Freemen of free land, patriots who
ar takin' yo'r fust breath of liberty
I'm lookin at dat stuft possum which
we have adopted as our sacred emblem
an! arter which we hev taken our
name. Typhoonic yells. Dar has
eber bin a bond of sympathy between
de culll man an de possum. Dey
haven't had a show wid de big game.
Dey has had to keep still till folks look
ed upon 'em as dead. Signs of groans
and repressed, agitation. However,
ifs gwine-to astonish a hull continent
de way dat possum will let go an'
drap down into de row an demand an
fight fur his sheer of de spiles. Whirl
winds Of applause, during which the
stove fell over unheeded.
"xo' jest git out yo'r pencils an

gwine to be cast for principle, but
doan' make no mistake 'bout principle.
We used to think dat it meant votln'
on sartin lines an dat George Wash

shun of de United States an seberal
odder things was mixed up wid It, an
we walked up an put in our votes as
if each an ebery one was gwine to

from de white man. Cries of Yo' bet

out on a political campaign wid a cart cartload
load cartload of principles to gib away free

when de ballots am counted up he lays
down bis principles to pick up his of

"We am gwine to take a flyleaf from
de white man's book. We'll stick to
principles, but we'll look out fur de
spiles as well.
"My fr'en's. daylight has cum at last

couldn't hold a candle to. General
hoarseness, but prodigious applause.

our part. We aint gwine to say much,
but what we do say will hit de barn

The orator sat down amid applause
that broke windows and put out lights,
and it was continued until the police
came tin the alley stairs and dropped
three tromei and fonr men down upon
the sand pile below The Possum par
