the Most Pleasant Events of
ine political meeting and picnic
dinner at Flemington Tuesday was an
event that well deserves to be remem

Flemington seems to be a sort of a
hub to the country surrounding. It
might well be the hub of the universe

Jhere. A quiet little settlement in the
midst of woods and cornfields, on
ordinary days it seems the incarna incarnation

was lively with people, autoes and
other vehicles Tuesday, and both

fully enjoyed the day.
Flemington is a place where roads
from all parts of Marion, Alachua and
Levy converge, and is almost the cen center

tried to take from us last year. After
viewing the country apd the. people,
the Star was more than glad that we
kept them with us. It is a splendid
country and the people are worthy
of it. : T

Tuesday morning the clouds were
heavy and the showers occasional,
and it looked like the speaking would
have to take place in the church; but
by 11 o'clock the clearing aspect of
the weather encouraged those in
charge to open the meeting at the
stand built in the grove between the
postoffice- and the church. This grove
is a most pretty., and pleasant place
to gather; the ground is clean and
dry and the towering oaks and pines
give an agreeable shade, while the
cooling breezes sweep in fromevery

young committeeman of the precinct,

most courteously and efficiently. The
candidates spoke their little pieces as
usual, extolling their own virtues
with good-natured little stabs at each
other's failings. Messrs. Light and
Zewadski kept out of each other's

questions, which was an improvement.

was going to be enough to go around,

carry away. The Star man had trou

its 30th in Ocala. In numbers the

Strenuous Effort Being Made on
TAYLOR BROTHERS BELIEVE THAT IT IS 0!!E OF THE GREATEST
Is Ocala going to have a modern
butchering and packing plant to take
care of the meat production of Mar
ion and adjoining counties? The Tay
for brothers, of the Ocala Manufac
turing company, have been working
strenuously with a view to building a
plant, and will continue to work unti
results are obtained.
"It would be. the biggest thing ever
started here," said Mr. John Taylor
his morning in discussing the pro
ject. Ocala's central location, he said
is greatly in favor of the location of
a large packing industry here.' "The
beauty of the thing is that it cannot
be overdone," Mr. Taylor said. "The
demand exceeds the supply."
The Taylor brothers figure it will
cost between $200,000 and $250,00 to
erect the proposed" plant. They want
to form a co-operative company or
stock company, either one. The
main thing is to get the industry
started. The banks, it is said, will
assist in financing the enterprise, if
sufficient amount of capital is
raised. Stock raising promises to be
the chief industry of this section of
the state, and at present markets
have to be found elsewhere for
arge part of the production.
This season 307,000 pounds of pork
have been handled in the cold storage
rooms of the Ocala Manufacturing
Company, and last year, 298,000
pounds were handled.' The cold
storage rooms of the company have
capacity for double this amount
oi meat. The meat is stored at a
rate of one cent per pound for each
thirty days, and a half cent per
pound for each additional thirty days.
This rate is said to be lower than
those of some of the big storage
plants in Georgia. y

Some of the older members of the
association had brought diaries, class
pictures and other things that were
reminiscent of the olden days, and
these were greatly enjoyed.

compel railroads to put up gates at

crossings smooth and comfortable for

which the Star has pressed upon the
council for years. But we"think they
should be passed without any refer reference

When considered as a part of the
school curriculum domestic science is
that branch of study that is concern
ed with household economics. The
introduction om manual training into
American public schools naturally led
to the development of sewing and
cooking as branches of study for girls,
and courses of this kind have been
established in the grammar schools of
many of the large cities throughout
For some years, prejudice was held
against the introduction of this de department

ground, that girls could receive suf sufficient
ficient sufficient instructions along these lines
in their own homes. It is, indeed,
true that instruction in the home is
very beneficial to the young girl; but
careful investigations show that by no
means do a majority of our modern
girls enjoy the '. advantages of this
branch of training in their homes. A
large proportion of the girls who at attend

homes where servants are employed,
where there is no necessity for the
performance of home duties by the
girls, and hence a very important
phase of the woman's education is
neglected that of training for the es essential

servants fail to realize the importance

that the state's postmasters wish to
give the best there is in them to their
patrons and government. Many topics
of great interest and importance were
discussed. Col. Rogers, postmaster at
Ocala, proved himself a splendid
host; he believes in saving the best
for the last. Thursday afternoon au
tomobiles started from the Ocala
House with every postmaster who
could stay over for the occasion and
they enjoyed a ride to Silver Springs,
the most beautiful and interesting in
