The reasons for the" Allies' military
failure in the Balkans is given by a
correspondent with the Allies as fol follows:

force at the immediate disposal of
the Allies was inadequate for the

have a clear road left for them to fall

The German official report claims
that approximately two English divis divisions

to be an exaggeration. Athens and
Saloniki accounts say the retreat was

Bulgarians were kept at a fairly safe

their comrades.
The question now arises as to
whether the Bulgarians and Teutons
intend to folow the British and
French into dreece and what action
the Greek government would take
should they do so. The impression.!
gained from Athens dispatches is that
neither the Bulgarians nor Turks, who
are also reported near the frontier,
will be welcome in Greece, therefor

George Rentz Asquiring Timber In Interests
terests Interests in All Parts of
the State
Mr. George Rentz has been absent
from the city, with the exception of a
day or two, for the past month. He
has been all over the state in that
time, from Miami to Jacksonville and
extreme West Florida and a great
many intervening points. Among
other things he has accomplished is
he opening of a big selling office for
tiis lumber output in Miami, with Mr.
W. J. Frink, formerly of this city, in
charge. Mr. Frink is an experienced
umber man and, was in charge of the
big mill at Levon before it was clos
ed down.
Mr. Rentz purchased the timber
rights on lands in West Florida suf sufficient
ficient sufficient to supply his mill for the next
20 years, y having been fortunate
enough ; to secure one of the finest
bodies of timber in the entire state.
He purchased one of the very larg
est sawmills in Jacksonville and will
haul his lumber via rail to this mill.
Then (and this is not such good
news to Ocala) Mr. Rentz will short shortly
ly shortly close down the big mill at Fort Mc
Coy, the only large mill in this part
of the state that has been running
right along since the war commenced,-
and the drop in lumber that closed
down so many mills and "busted" so
many others over the state.
Mr. Rentz will, after the close of
school, move his family to Jackson
ville, but will retain his home here,
and at some future date expects to
return to Ocala. In the meantime he
will have a good deal of interests
hereabouts and will be a frequent vis
itor to the city.
A Star reporter only got a word in

Hi LIK
. Sirs. Maude B. Uttle, Editor
Marion county has gone dry! Such
was the message announced in our
state papers last week. The battle
against liquor ha3 been' a hard and
long one, but right has won and old
Marion at last has a chance to float
her colors for "God and home and na native
tive native land," unmolested.
The Dade county election comes off
next week. Marion county wishes for
her the success which she herself
shared last Week that will leave only
even counties wet.
Prohibition is strong and sure.
State-wide prohibition for Florida is
sure to follow before long. The tem temperance
perance temperance sentiment is spreading very
rapidly.
From Kentucky
A fight is on for state-wide and na national
tional national prohibition. Science, business
and -religion unite in condemning al alcohol
cohol alcohol as a curse to the race. Its leg legalized
alized legalized sale is criminal. It must be
destroyed. It is an enemy of the
heme, the school and the church. Ken Kentucky
tucky Kentucky manhood must meet the issue.
Our loyal state must go out of the
drunkard-making business. We be believe
lieve believe our friendly readers utter a
hearty "amen" to this utterance.
The states through which the pro prohibitionist
hibitionist prohibitionist may take a transcontinen transcontinental
tal transcontinental journey in perfect happiness and
security after next January are
Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Ok Oklahoma,
lahoma, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Idaho and
Washington, eight states in all, and a
delightful, if somewhat unusual route
between Savannah and Seattle. There
is that corner of Wyoming in the way,
to be sure, but perhaps not for long.
When a local paper comes out
strongly for prohibition it is almost
sure victory, so powerful is the pres3
:n all questions of the day.
The pulpit, the press and the W. C.
T. U. of Ocala made it possible for
the great victory which was ours on
Dec. 7th.
In Congress
The prohibition bills which will
come before Congress at the present
session practically complete the pro program
gram program of the temperance forces of the
nation insofar as national legislation
13 concerned. Perhaps all will not be
passed; but the fight will be made
and it is not doubted that Congress
will approve some of the measures.

Can You Go Straight?
The above question l- not Intended,
to be personal. We are quite sure that
you are a good, steady going citizen:
but. all the same, we we equally sure
that youcanuot walk straight without
the help of your eyes. Naturally your
tendency is to walk In a circle, and
you would do this if your eyes were
not constantly correcting the tendency.
You may easily test this. Place two
stakes in your garden about eight feet
apart, take up a position some sixty
feet away, get some one to blindfold
you and then try to walk between the
two stakes. You will find that you
are going in a circle. "'

Unique Bible Character.
One of the few men in the Bible
who have nothing recorded against
them is Joseph of Arimathea. Every
one,of the evangelists has a good word
to. say for Joseph. One says he "was
an honorable counselor." another, thai
he,was a just man." another that he
was a rich man. another that he was
a "secret disciple." Only one of the
evangelists sjnjats. of the birth of
Christ, but all four of them erect a
monument to Joseph of Arimathea
When he became a disciple we are not
told. Dr. Andrew Bonar of Scotland
says he can just imagine that Ni-.-o
demus may have been moved by Jo
seph of Arimathea to believe in Christ
At all events. Xicodem us didn't come
out very boldly himself. He didn't get
his discipleship out very clear. They
were both members of the saubedrin.

Misunderstanding
By WILLARD BLAKEMAN

, Alex Trowbridge, baving been gradu graduated
ated graduated from college, advertised for a posi position
tion position as tutor in a private family, lie
got a request to call at a house la a
suburban place called Glendale and
went there oue afternoon to find a
handsome bouse in the center of large
grounds. A ring at the bell brought a
maid who ushered him into a drawing
room and left him without waiting to
learn who should be announced. Trow Trowbridge,
bridge, Trowbridge, having written that he would
call on that day and hour, supposing
he was expected, did not call her back
He had waited some time when he
noticed a movement of a screen before
a door leading to a side room. Since
there was no apparent reason for its
being moved, his curiosity was excited.
Going to it, he looked behind it.
A girl of nineteen was there, who
had evidently been spying on him. Be Being
ing Being detected, she colored.
"I dare say you think hard of me,"
she said, "but you must admit that un
der the circumstances I would wish to
catch a glimpse of you before meeting
you."
"Quite so," replied Trowbridge, sup
posing that she was to be his pupil.
"I dare, say this matter is for the
best, but it seems very cold blooded,
added the girl.
-Cold blooded?"
"It certainly seems cold blooded to
me, though there Is an element of ro
xnance in a girl meeting for the first
time one who is to have so Important
an influence on her life."
Trowbridge was as much astonished
as puzzled. lie had beard of girls fall
ing In love with their tutors, but this
speaking of romance in a case where
the tutor had not yet been engaged
seemed premature.
"I can readily understand," he said,
"the feeling that prompted you to de
sire to see me before receiving me. It
enabled you to turn me down in case
you did not approve, or, rather.
would have enabled you to do so had I
not blundered into interrupting your
urrey."
"It was I who blundered in attempt
lng to make a survey. How did you
come to suspect that I was behind the
screen?"
"I saw it rock without any apparent
cause.?
"How stupid of me!"
"I suppose I am to see your father
with reference to the engagement?"
"Certainly. But he is not in this aft
ernoon. Besides, there is no hurry. The
object of this visit is entirely prelimi
nary, being to enable us to meet and
get acquainted. I am not to be forced
In the matter. I am to have full lib
erty to do as 1 please, you, of course
hating the same privilege."
"Oh. for that matter my mind
ta
. made up. 1 am ready to make an en
gagement at once. I am delighted in
having so attractive a pupil.
"In the art of love?" looking up
. archly.
This was proceeding at so rapid
pace : that Trowbridge was almost
frightened. Surely there must be some
thing una ppa rent at the bottom of it
What did it mean? He turned the topic
of conversation to the course'of Instruc
tlon to be pursued.
"Do you intend to prepare for col
lege?" he asked.
"College? Oh, no; there will be no
time to go to college. Father needs
capital at once. Of course he has told
you all about that." ;
The puzzled look on Trowbridge's
face was noticed by the girl, who
added:
Vlt can't be possible that papa has ar
ranged this meeting without having
made the business arrangement with
jouf
- "I have not seen your father. I ad
vertlsed for a position as tutor and re
ceived a letter asking me to call.
Further explanation was Interrupt
ea by a young man being shown
into the room by the maid. The lady
had sidled up to Trowbridge and was
sitting very near him. The newly en
tering guest started, then, pulling him
aelf together, advanced.
"I'm Mr. Waterman," he
have come in accordance

Jumped from the sofa on which she
and Trowbridge were sitting as though
he had been stung by a wasp,
"Are you Mr. Waterman?" she asked
excitedly of the newcomer, s
' "Certainly I'm Mr. Waterman. As
was saying"
And who are you?" she demanded
angrily of the other man.
"I'm Alexander Trowbridge. As I

"Oh, my goodness gracious r exclaim

ton whereby her father was to secure
capital to save him from bankruptcy
He pulled through without Water
mans assistance, and eventually
Trowbridge effected an engagement
with the daughter of far more im
porta nee than that of tutor. Neverthe
less he was never forgiven for having
permitted the girl who became his
wife to talk to him. believing him to
have called for a matrimonial pur
pose. Trowbridge does not retaliate

He does. not dare do so. The family

Sunset and Twilight.
Twilight is a phenomenon caused Dy
atmosnberic refraction When the sun
gets below the horizon we are not tm
mediately plunged into the darkuesH ot
night. Although the sun in below, our
horizon, rays of solar light are lut or
refracted by the terrestrial atmosphere
and continue to furnish some slight
illumination. The process continues
with diminishing intensity : until the
sun is so far below the horizon that

enough to produce a visible effect: The
time after sunset that the sun reaches
such a position varies with the lati
tnde of the place. There is less twi twilight
light twilight at the tropic zone than at the
temperature or frigid zone. This Is due
to less time taken by the sun's rays to
pass through the atmosphere, at the
tropic zone the sun's rays being per perpendicular
pendicular perpendicular and at the temperate and
frigid zones oblique.
Aeroplane Wings.
, Various kinds of material including
linen, silk, cotton, celluloid films and
aluminum foil, have been tried P for
covering the wings of aeroplanes, but
none has proved so satisfactory so far
as linen covered with several coats of
a rubber solution. This coating in
creases the strength of the linen about
5 per cent, makes it more enduring uh
der varying weather conditions and
causes it to stretch to an absolutely

the utmost advantage In fast flights.
Silk, which would seem to make an
Ideal covering on account of its light

Red Cross Seals Placed on Sale
Ten thousand Red Cross Christmas

seals have been placed on sale in the

city by the social service committee,

Mrs. Eli A. Osborn chairman, of the
Woman's Club. They are at the
Court Pharmacy, Rheinauer's, Book

Shop, Gerig's Drug Store and the
Commercial Bank and two days next
week they will be sold by a group of
pretty school girls at the post office
and other places.

For those not knowing what be

comes with the money from the sale
of the seals we will say, ten per cent
of the amount realized goes to each
club selling the seals, and can be used
for any purpose they see fit. Ten per
cent goes to the National Red Cross

Association for use in any place they

deem most needing the funds. Eighty

per cent goes to the Florida Red
Cross Association for work in the

fight against tuberculosis in our own

state.

Work which is done with funds

raised through the sale of these pret pretty
ty pretty little seals, now being sold in ev every
ery every city and town throughout the

country, is told in a bulletin just is

the Study and Prevention of Tuber Tuberculosis.

"Every Red Cross Christmas seal
that is sold is a real bullet in the
fight against tuberculosis. These
seals last year helped to support thou thousands
sands thousands of needly tuberculosis patients
and to give them a chance for life.
They provided for many visiting
nurses, whose hundreds of thousands
of visits brought instruction and
cher to numerous s patients. They
helped maintain dispensaries in scores
of cities from the Atlantic to the Pa Pacific,

patients received free treatment, aid
and advice. They provided the means
to purchase millions of copies of cir circulars,
culars, circulars, pamphlets and other literature
with which the public has been edu educated

established and helped to maintain

more than 500 open-air schools, for

children who need open-air treatment.
These are just a few of the ways in
which the $550,000 received last year
was expended. Surely anyone can
help by buying at least ten seals."
We cannot' urge too strongly upon
the people of Ocala to buy them. The

sale of each stamp means a Christ

and aid toward the great gift of

health.

this way "the few remaining grains of
rice are washed down as the tea i?
