HIGH COST OF LIVING

Important Subject Discussed at a
Committee Meeting at the
Woman's Club
A committee of the Woman's Club
together with representatives from
other women's organizations and sev several
eral several of the merchants of the city met
at the Woman's Club building Mon Monday
day Monday afternoon to discuss the question
of the day, "the high cost of. living."
Women's clubs and neighborhood
groups of women all over the country
are having called meetings for the
purpose, of discussing this very im important
portant important question and in many places
they have succeeded in reducing the
prices of certain articles of food. But
this has been in larger places where
certain articles have been "cornered,"
and the reduction has been brought
about 'by a boycott. It was not the
purpose of this committee, however,
to recommend this method since the
committee fully realized that a local
boycott in a small community could
not effect prices except on local pro-
duce and it was thejr object to work!
for the interest of local producers,
our farmers, poultry and milk men
as much as for the merchants and
jnsumers of Ocala.
Messrs. B. A. Weathers, Baxter
Cam, Harvey Clark and T. C. Carter
responded to the invitation to meet
with the committee ,and others pres present
ent present were Mrs. C. Rhcinauer, repre
senting the King's Daughters; Mrs.
D. E. Mclver, representing the U. D.
C; Mrs. F. G. B. Weihe, the Eastern
Stars; Mrs. R. L. Anderson of the
club, and also representing the Pres Presbyterian
byterian Presbyterian ladies; Mrs. R. S. Hall, the
Baptist ladies; Mrs. G. ,T. Maughs,
the Episcopalians; Mrs. L. J. Knight,
the Catholics; Mrs. W. T. Gary, the
club and the W. C. T. U.; Miss Ella
Mendenhall, the Parent-Teachers' as association,
sociation, association, and Mrs.'Hocker and Mrs.
Tydings of the Woman's Club.
All of the gentlemen present made
splendid talks and threw a great deal
of light on the subject. Mr. Weath Weathers
ers Weathers of the H. B. Masters Co., made the
first talk. He said the condition of
affairs was as much concern to the
merchants as to the public and that
they are glad to co-operate with the
consumers wherever possible. He
thought the condition brought on by
the war is of course responsible for
the high prices, although speculation
has something to do with it, too.
Mr. Carn spoke most optimistically
of present conditions and feels that
the present high prices is the best
thing that has happened in years, and
feels 'that there are brighter times
ahead for Marion county than ever
before in history. If we will only
have a little patience he thinks that
conditions will soon adjust themselves.
Mr. Harvey Clark of the O. K. Tea Teapot
pot Teapot Grocery thought that the women
can largely solve the problem con
fronting them by studying economy
and by doing their own marketing. He
thought that a boycott of the necessi
ties of life would result in more harm
than good. That it would discourage
the raisers of nroduce and would
eventually prove most disastrous.
Speaking of eggs, Mr. Weathers
stated that the Ocala market is almost
entirely furnished by the farmers in
this section.
Mr. Carter stated that the present
high price of flour is due to the short shortage
age shortage in the wheat crop and to specu
lation.
The general conclusions reached
were that the high prices existing to today
day today are due to supply and demand and
to a certain extent to speculation.
The shortage in the grain crops
last year has raised the price of flour
and feed. The high price of flour and
feed has raised the price of bread,
i chickens, eggs, milk, etc.
The higher price of tin and wrap
ping for cans, together with a short
crop of tomatoes and other vegetables
has raised the price of canned goods.
Considering then the decreased pro production
duction production this year and the greater de-
Imand on account of the war and the
cheapness of money in the north on
account of the great influx of gold, it
is easy to see why prices are high.
The only condition which can be rem remedied
edied remedied is that of the rise of prices on
account of speculation and the U. S.

The people of Ocala are taxed to

is not only proper but necessary that
the management of that institution
be under the direct supervision of the

in Lakeland today, and went over the
Lakeland golf course, which he laid

the Star has made no such demand.

It approved the sentiment that the
president should have only one term,

with the proviso that his term be

lengthened to six years. The Star
has often said that the president
should have only one six year term,

but it has never believed, in the last
campaign, before it or after it, that

a good president should, have only one

four-year term. Moreover, if the T.

The scribe was surprised at the

wanting to abolish the justice of peace
offices in this county and have all the
work handled "through the county
adge's office. If that's the case why
not abolish all the precincts and have
all the voters ero to Ocala to vote.
know there is not a precinct in this
county that hasn't plenty of good,
conscientious men who can fill the of
fice of justice of peace and follow the
aw to the letter. To abolish these of
fices would impose a -hardship upon
the people and a great many petty
arceny cases vyould never be tried if
they had to be carried to Ocala, and
the evildoers would go unpunished.
We don't believe Messrs. Terrell,
Light and Crosby will ever undertake
o get a constitutional amendment
hrough the legislature to this effect.
Enough said. ".
We wish all the readers of the Star
merry Christmas and a happy and
prosperous New Year.

OH! MY BACK'
The Expression of Many a Kidney
Sufferer in Ocala
A stubborn backache is cause to sus
pect kidney trouble. When the kid
news are inflamed and swollen, stoop
ing brings a sharp twinge in the small
of the back, that almost takes the
breath away. Doan's Kidney Pills
revive sluggish kidneys relieve ach
ing backs. Here's Ocala proof.
L. C. Pafford, carpenter, 29 East
Monroe street, Ocala, says: "I had a
severe case of backache. I couldn't
straighten up after I once stooped
over, unless I took hold of something
tor support. Cften I could see dark
spots floating in front of me and
sometimes everything: before me be
came black. A druggist recommended
Doan's Kidney Pills, saying he had
nothing better in the store, so I began
using them. One box cured me."

Danger Signal
If the fire bell should ring would
you run and stop it or go and help to
put out the fire? It is much the same
way with a cough. A cough is a dan danger
ger danger signal as much as a fire bell. You
should no more try to suppress it than
to stop a fire bell when it is ringing,
but should cure the disease that caus causes
es causes the coughing. Thi3 can nearly al
ways be done by taking Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. Many have used, it
with the most beneficial results. It is
especially valuable for the persistent
cough that so often follows a bad cold
or an attack of the grip. Mrs. Thomas
Bceching. Andrews, lnd writes:
"During the winter my husband takes
cold easily and coughs and coughs.
Chamberlain's Coueh Remedy is the
best medicine for breaking up thes
attacks and you cannot get him to
take any other." Obtainable every
where.

That rainbows are often seen across
the mlst3 of Niagara falls is a fact,
but we do not think the phenomenon
is as i?rfect,, that is to say, as dis

Such a woman in nine cases out
of ten is suffering from womanly
disorders. She h often pale, with
dark circles under the eyes and
a general feeling of lassitude and
despondency. Such a woman very
often dislikes to consult .a physician
about embarrassing' subjects. Shj
Vould do well to write
DOCTOR FIEIXCKj
care of the Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y.,
giving full description of her symp symptoms,
toms, symptoms, and she will receive promptly
a reply as to whether she can
be cured.
Dr. Pierce does not claim for his
" FAVORITE PFiECCniPTIOIi
that it is a "cure-all." It is rec-

nu'fsicine is according to what it ac accomplishes
complishes accomplishes for otic in "bad health, and
the value of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre Prescription
scription Prescription and Pleasant Pellets is more
than 1 can state. 1 had been in ex exceedingly
ceedingly exceedingly run-down condition, result resulting
ing resulting from chills, fever and aue. Had
very little ambition for work or -pleas-
f ure. 1 was so tired that life itself was
a burden. My stomach was deranged,
too. and appetite isone. and the nerves
were in such an irritable shape that l
could not stand any noise or bad news,
even the familiar noises on our farm
would set my nerves quivering-; and to
make bad matters worse, I was in tne
'change,' with much of the serious, un unpleasant
pleasant unpleasant and uncomfortable features
that occur at this precariouj time of a
woman's life. The 'Favorite Prescrip-

brought the best of changes in my gen general
