INTEREST :
'Associated Press ,
london, Dec. 17. There is a (more
hopeful feeling felt here regarding
the Balkan situation now that it is
definitely announced that the Italians
have effected a landing in Albania and
that the Anglo-French forces at Sa Saloniki
loniki Saloniki have been strongly reinforced.
It is not stated how large an Ital Italian
ian Italian force. has b'eW sent to assist the
Serbians and Montenegrins but from
the fact that the official report inti intimates
mates intimates landings at several ports it is
taken for granted that an army of
considerable proportions has been
sent. This with the Serbians and
Montenegrins will be a serious threat
to r the central powers' right flank,
while they cannot look with idleness
on the concentration of forces at Sa Saloniki
loniki Saloniki and the gathering of Russians
in Bessarabia.
It is anticipated therefore that the
Germans will strike at Saloniki, be before
fore before the Anglo-French forces grow too
strong. It is believed that with this
end in view they are now negotiating
with Greece. If the Teuton plans in
clude the Bulgarians they will likely
meet with Greek opposition, as Greece
is strongly adverse to any Bulgarians
crosing her frontier. This applies al also,
so, also, to some extent, to the Austrians,
whose ambition has been always for
an Aegean port, preferably Saloniki.
On the whole therefore it is thought
here that Greece might prefer to see
the Entente Allies remain there until
the war ends. In fact Lord Robert Ce Cecil,
cil, Cecil, under secretary of foreign affairs,
in the House of Commons said that
the Entente plan was to keep the cen central

forms the basis for most of them. It

to the great injury of the Florida

other feed products, often sells for

But the humble purpose of this ar article
ticle article is to law before the people of
thi3 state a few plain facts with re regard
gard regard to a Florida beggar, the richest
in the world. The beggar weed of
thi3 state carries within its succulent
stalk, stems and leaves, a greater
amount- of nutriment for : domestic
animals than possibly any other plant
tfct grows, "and thereby hangs a
tak", -
To see this valuable plant go to
waste in the fields by the tens of
thousands of tons all over the state
of Flprida. and theiksee the people of
the state buy other thousands of ton3
of inferior feed shipped in from other
states, should make a, fellow sit up
and think, so let us try to think.
To compare the value of this plant,
which goes so largely to waste, to
other feeds so largely imported, es especially
pecially especially alfalfa, a legume that enters
extensively into many of the feed 3
shipped into the state.

Mr, Allan Rodgers,

Dear Sir: Yours of the 23rd re received

Yours truly,
- R. E. ROSE,
: State Chemist.
Turning to the page referred to the
' wayfaring man must wonder that
! .Florida is an importer of inferior
Teed; he will wonder more that she
: is not an exporter of superior feed.
TThan let him look over the thousands
of acres of beggar weed that rot in
Ahe fields or is committed to the
. flames tp clear the land': for other
vcrops, : and he will wonder some, f
Jit is said that wonders never cease,
nd a visit to the largest feed store
in the city of Tampa bears out the
saying. All kinds of feed in car loads
and" boat loads, feed in bales and in
bags; ground and unground, mixed
and unmixed, but you will look in
vain for an ounce, for a straw, or a
grain grown on soil of your native
state..
We will ask the manager about

mixed feeds and he will probably lay
emphasis on the fact that all of them
are. based on ground alfalfa, and the
price to you will Jbe about an average

of $2.25 per hundred, or $45 per ton.

It is a safe guess that alfalfa is the
most valuable of; any of the compo

nent parts so. you may pay $45 for
alfalfa and other inferior stuff, and
sell your corn at something like $16

:per ton.

The demand foreground mixed feed

13 growing very rapidly, and alfalfa

man. it is

probably of Egyptian origin and fur furnished
nished furnished feed to the horses of the Pha

raohs when Joseph was sold into j

bondage. We are told by the histo historian
rian historian that it was introduced into Gaul
by Julius Caesar about the year 44
B. C.
For hundreds of years it did for
the people in parts of France, in a
limited way, just what it is doing for
the people in a part of our great west
today on a grander scale. This plant
has turned more barren acres into
productive fields than any other sin single
gle single plant cultivated by man. It is
our western farmer, however, who has
made it pay. By the introduction of
machinery that cures, grinds and
sacks it the day it is cut he is not
only able to save the entire product,
but puts it on the market in the very
best condition-
A few days since I read a plea from
Mr. Light of Reddick, for "a meat
packing plant for Ocala. In my hum humble
ble humble judgment the idea was a good
one, and along this line plants should
be established throughout the state
for curing the beggar weed as fast as
cut, for in this way only can all of it
be saved. The beggar weed is al almost
most almost uivariably at its best in the
rainy season and a little shower will
sometimes spoil an entire cutting.
Machinery that would dry and grind
beggar weed in the same way that
alfalfa is prepared would enable the
Florida farmer to add to his bank ac account
count account is much clear money, as is now
realized on the cotton crop of the
state.
The people of Florida should not be
as long in recognizing the merits of
the richest beggar in the world as
were the learned Greeks in bestowing
fame on the most intellectual beggar

that ever breathed the breath of life.

With a ceremony so simple and
with attendants so few one can
scarcely believe that the wedding
means a new life for the president
and a new "first lady of the land."
Mrs. Gait, one of the -most beauti beautiful

Virginia stock, never 1 looked more
lovely than she did as the date for
the wedding approached. And even $ie

On Dc. 28 the president will be
fifty-nine years old. Less than a year

ago the trace of a very eventful year
was written unmistakably into his
face and physique. Especially did he
show the stress and travail which he
has undergone during the last five
years. Today, apparently without a
care in the world, he looks less than
fifty. His air of austere reserve has
melted away, and he is all gracious gracious-nes3.

The country has never witnessed
functions more brilliant than those
which will be held in the White House
after the return of the. president and
hi3 bride from their honeymoon. She
is a gracious and brilliant entertain entertainer,
er, entertainer, although she has taken little part
in social activities during the past
eight years. Of course there will be
trouble in arranging the diplomatic
dinners because of the European war,
but the president's bride is somewhat
of a diplomat herself and will find a
way out. Many receptions have been
planned, and Washington society is
rejoicing.
Washington has often noted with
complimentary phrases the bride's
taste in dress. Her friends have al always
ways always remarked her ability to dress
distinctively and becomingly. Back of

this ability lies a talent cultivated in :

the girlhood days. Money was not
overabundant Cin the Boiling family.
There -was enough to give everybody
the education due the standing of an
old and influential Virginia family,
but cash to buy trousseaux ad lib for
a family of girls remarkable for their
beauty and popularity was not. always
available, wherefore Miss Edith Boil Boiling

ITS TIME FOR OCALA
TO LIVEN UP
One of our business men, who pre prefers
fers prefers to go ahead and try to do some some-ding,
ding, some-ding, even if he fails, to sitting down
and waiting for the sign to be right,
and if he fails immediately picks
himself up and tries again, either his
2Trst stunt or another, backed a Star I
reporter up against a telephone pole
t-Chis morning, and expelled from his
- system the following:
"One of the things Ocala needs,"
earn 11c, is a iuu F ui luuiisu evexjr
winter, and the way to draw tourists
is to have a good tourist hotel and a
cood. 18-hole coif course. ; Ocala Deo-
. O K
' pie do not understand what drawing
card a golf course it. All the live
ijjwns with tourist travel are putting
fiiem in. Tourists have to have some something;
thing; something; to take up their time. They are
tlie sun, and eat oranges, like they
-. were twentv-five vears aero. There
isn't any sport that appeals to so i
t many different .. kinds of people, and I
the kind of people who go to a tourist
town to stay several months nearly
all play golf."
The reporter said he thought that
Ocala had a pretty good golf course.
"That,' said the b. m., "is private,
and while the owners are generous
. about inviting their'friends, of course
world. The town needs good links,
where everybody can play.
"Same way about a hotel. Tourists
don't want to stop for weeks or
months at the regular hotel. ; They
want one specially for themselves
and' run by-a man who understands
how to cater to them. ) Its a seldom
thing that a man who can run a com commercial
mercial commercial hotel can run a tourist hotel,
i and vice versa."
"What do you think," said the re-j
porter, "about a trolley line to Silver
Springs, with the possible extension
to Lake Weir?"
; "A line to Silver Springs," said the
h. m., "will be a good thing, provided
it is left in the hands of a company
or 'syndicate of the leading business
nen of the town to run it. It will be
all right for the city to build" it, but
the city shouldn't try to run it. A city
council can never operate anything, of ;
the sort successfully. Politics and
graft are likely to creep in,, and
at any rate there won't be the inter interest
est interest in the line conducive to good bus-f
iness. The city should build the line,
fout lease it to a syndicate of the lead leading
ing leading business men. They would put it
in charge of a manager, who would
try to obtain the bestA results, and
also every one of them would take a
personal interest in it and work to
obtain business for it.
"As for the line to Lake Weir, I
don't think it. would be a success
now, but if the line to Silver Springs
was built and successfully operated,
I am sure that in a very few years it
could be extended to Lake Weir. One
would bring on and help the other,"
' As( there is much good, practical
sense in what the gentleman said, the
Star submits his ideas to the consid consid-.
. consid-. eration of the people.
On December 6, the Colorado sw
preme court, in an unanimous opinion
written by Chief Justice W. H. Gab Gab-bert,

diction. jurisdiction. In effect the decision held
that the enforcement of state-wide

that the constitutional' prohibition

OCALA DOESNT USE
A GREAT ADVANTAGE
The 1 Literary Digest for December
18 has an article on winter resorts
which contains this paragraph:
"For those who wish to penetrate
the interior of Florida and see some
of 'the beauties of nature hidden in her
lake and river region, there are no
more enjoyable trips than the St.
Johns ; and Ocklawaha river trips.
Steamer by the Clyde Line for the
former trip leaves Jacksonville daily
and proceeds up the St. Johns river
past Palatka and through Lake
George to Sanford, a journey of some
nineteen hours, so timed as to give
daylight to the most interesting por portions.
tions. portions. The Ocklawaha river excur excursion
sion excursion starts from Palatka. There are
two services. Boats of the Silver
Springs, Transportation and Hart
Line have daily service from Palatka
(7 a. m.) up the St. Johns river to
tke mouth of the Ocklawaha river,
thence up the winding, twisting Ock Ocklawaha
lawaha Ocklawaha to Silver Springs (5 p. m.)
The scenery along this unique river
i.v unparalleled. For those who wish
to make the trip more leisurely the
Hart Line has tri-weekly service of
i about 24 hours from Palatka to Silver
Springs." -V:.'-.
This is all very fine. The question
more than it is?
Here is more evidence of the fact
that Ocala has not taken advantage
of a great asset, and more evidence
why Ocala should take advantage of
it as soon as possible. Silver Springs
i? within the city limits of Ocala, and
yet here it is featured in connection
with Palatka. It should be known all
over the world that Silver Springs is
Lv Ocala. The city and the Springs
should be so advertised that the one
brings to mind the other.
OCALA STAR JOINS THE CLUB
(St. Petersburg Independent)
After fighting hard to drive the
saloons out of Ocala and succeeding in
khis effort, the Ocala Star announces
that it will carryno whisky advertise advertisements
ments advertisements after the expiration of the
contracts that are now in existence.
The Star says it will not fight liquor
in its editorial columns and carry
whisky ads in another column; will
not take money from those against
whom it is allied.
The Star is taking the right course.
It is the only consistent course, and
the paper shows that it is square
when it plants itself boldly on the
heights and declined to accept tainted
money. It is a paper of ability and
nerve. It takes nerve to let go of $1, $1,-000,
000, $1,-000, and that is about the amount the

the above named points, and with i
which you are familiar. And lastly, i
we have ordered the construction of a
union depot for Ocala. This includes
everything that I know of that Ocala
has ever asked for, except the rates
which were desired in order to aid in
the re-establishing of wholesale con concerns
cerns concerns in your city. This last propo proposition,
sition, proposition, I am glad to say, we are just
about to accomplish.
You remember many of your peo people
ple people thought that the "Long and Short
Haul Law" would prove a solution of
the wholesale question, and seme in
cluding yourself, I think were dis dissatisfied
satisfied dissatisfied because we did not decide
the matter at once. The commis commissioners
sioners commissioners gave this matter a great deal
of consideration but the 4 more we
studied it, the more convinced we
were that it would not assist the in interior
terior interior towns at all in the solution of
the problem which they desired
solved. For instance, if we t had
forced the railroads (which we did
not have authority to do), to operate
the same rate from Jacksonville to
Ocala on grain as they formerly op operated
erated operated from Jacksonville to Tampa, it
would have reduced your grain rate
from 15 cents to 11 cents per hun hundred
dred hundred pounds. While this would have
allowed your wholesaler a reduction
of 4 cents per hundred pounds, yet
the Jacksonville jobber could have
shipped his grain into Ocala on the
very same rate, so that : he would
have had the same advantage over the
Ocala jobber as he now ha3 the only
different being that the ; rate would
be lower.
More than a year ago, we took up
the matter with the traffic officials of
the two principal railroads at anoth another
er another angle, and with arguments, per persuasion
suasion persuasion and threats of carrying to the
Interstate Commerce Commission,
after many meetings and many dis discussions
cussions discussions with them, we finally got
them to agree to a scheme which I
am sure will go a long way towards
giving the people of Ocala and other
interior Florida towns what they have
wanted. This plan will be put into
effect at an early date.
All these matters you, know have
had to come step by step. The rail railroad
road railroad commission has passed from one
fight with the railroads to another
just as fast as it was possible to' do
so. As soon as .we have secured one
concession from them, we immediate immediately
ly immediately prepared to get another.
When these rates are put into ef effect,

everything for Ocala that she has
asked for so far as I know, and you
and your peopl will certainly have
no right to complain of any lack of
performance on the part of the rail railroad
road railroad commission. '
After considering the ahpve ac accomplishments,
complishments, accomplishments, it seems to me that
any fair minded man must admit that
my record as a commissioner is not
only good but extraordinarily so, and
that when we have, as shown above,
forced reductions in rates which have
amounted to many hundred thousand
dollars per annum in savings to the
people of the state, that it is unfair
for the public to overlook all of these
j really great accomplishments, and
censure our whole record because
some of the public disagree with us
pnnfPmiTifr some insignificant detail
'of our work. If we reduce the rates
on a thousand articles is the entire
accomplishment worth nothing be because
cause because in doing it it is necessary to
raise the rate on a few articles?
If Ve order a depot to be construct constructed

of the road several thousand dollars,

When a woman who has three or four
summer skirts tells her husband that
she hasn't one that Is fit to wear on the
street she is often telling the truth
without knowing it

when a cross (X) is shown on the half

If a man's thermometer registers 105
on a hot day and all the rest of the
thermometers In town register 95 he
knows that, he has the only accurate
thermometer in town.
Daughter can't bear to see her poor
old mother slaving over a washtub on
Monday. So daughter gets up early on
Monday and stays downtown the rest
the day.
If you are denying your wife a lot
of pleasures so you can lay up some something

A woman will get mad If you In Insist

low cat waists all winter, and this sum summer

A liar Is a man who arrives home
about 2:30 a. m. and begins to explain
to his wife how it happened.

A married woman likes to f fed tramps

because it Is a relief to have a man
eat a meal and not complain about the

Always try to remember that when
you say nice things about people you
will never be forced to eat your words.

Most of us are run down because -we

are always climbing hills that are not

'"Madam." interrupted the banker,
"I'm too busy to listen to all this.
From your; description of your son I
judge that he Is a ne'er-do-well'
The old lady looked at the banker
wonderingly. "Jimmie a ne'er-do-well!
Why, he's the smartest boy you ever
saw. How do you suppose he ever got
those high marks at school unless"
The banker cut her short, asking her
how much money she wanted to send
her son. but when she said that she
was going to let him have $1,000. for
which he was to send her a thousand
shares of 'i stock in a manufacturing
concern he was organizing, the presi president
dent president implored her not to rob herself by
putting her money in some wild scheme
that would surely explode and leave
her in the lurch.
"Wild scheme!" she exclaimed. "Do
you suppose my boy would let his
mother put ; her. money in a wild
scheme? Why, he wouldn't"
"Enough, madam. Let me have your
$1,000 and I'll give you a draft for it
that will be as good as money for your
son. Dut remember that I warned you."
The old lady opened a hand bag and
took; out a stocking, from which she
poured a quart measure of bills, gold
and silver. The banker called a clerk
and directed him to count the money
and. finding the amount as the old lady
had stated, gave her a draft for it.
Two years passed. One day ,a car carriage

lady wrapped in expensive furs was
helped to alight by a maid who carried

"I've got a lot of papers' she said.
J "I want you to take care of for me."
And. opening the satchel, she drew
forth a pile of securities which the
president, on looking over, found to be
of great value. ; lie locked them in a
box in the safety deposit branch of the
bank' and, handing her the key, told
her that she, and she. alone.'. would-be
able to unlock, the box and would have
access to it at any time during business
hours. .
"You don't seem to know me." she
laid.
"Really," replied the banker. "I must
confess that don't."
"Don't you remember my coming in
here and emptying a stocking full of
money and you giving me a paper for
it to send to my boy? Well. Jimmie
was getting up a company to make

third interest in the concern. After he
got to, making money he 'watered the
stock whatever that means, and gave
me a thousand shares. Jimmie says
each share is worth $300. I knew that
Jimmie couldn't have got all those-C
