Herbert Hoover Asks AH the People
V to Help
Washington, Aug 19. -Declaring
the United States and the Allies face
a wheat deficit of four hundred mill million
ion million bushels unless new economies
are introduced, Herbert Hoover has
appealed to all people to eliminate
waste and asking that they conserve
wheat by the use of other cereals. He
says that saving a pound of flour a
week by every person will go far to
ward solving the question.
The Allies, said Mr. Hoover, are
completely isolated from markets
other than Canada and the United
States. The Russian supply cannot
be obtained and Australia and India
are too distant.

Under the Stars arid Stripes American
blueajekets are now fighting to avenge

What are you going to do to help?
Are you going to stand by idle on
the side lines, loafing in front of the
corner store, reading history in the
newspapers? Or are you going to
pitch in yourself? Are you going to
help to make history? Are you going
to do your bit, so that you can square
yourself with yourself, so that your
mother shall be proud of you, and
your sweetheart look up to you? For
boy, no woman likes a "slacker."
Now, sea fighting is an adventure,
and, as in the good old days, the navy
goes pirate-hunting, but the Corsair
of today is the dastardly U-boat, the
murderer of American women and

HALF A CROP BUT FULL MONEY
Mr. A. E. Barnes, of .the Florida

was in town Saturday and in talking
to a Star man stated that he had
been to California, where the ex exchange

fruit crop there. The crop .in Cali California
fornia California is very short and will, of
course, affect the price of Florida
, Mr. Barnes said he had been all
over the orange producing section of
Florida late enough to get a good idea
of the fruit crop for the coming sea season,
son, season, and estimated it at half a crop,
though, of course, through this par particular
ticular particular section we will have but very
little fruit. He said that each month
made a better showing, and that crop
conditions were improving steadily.
Mr. Barnes said in all probability
the fruit would bring twice as much
money per box as it,did last season,
so that on an arevage the state will
get almost as much money this season
as last for its citrus fruit, with a
smaller expense of handling.
Congressman Frank Clark is being

can feel proud. We see no reason
why he shouldn't be governor if he

We don't think Mr. Clark wants to
be governor. He is a bigger man in
Congress than he would be as a
governor. After he has served a term
or two more in the House, it would be
greatly to the advantage of the state
to send him to the Senate.

The following letter from the West Western
ern Western Horseman, will be of interest to
a great many people who intend to
attend the Marion County Fair:
If agricultural fairs were not limit limited
ed limited to so short a season it would be
reasonable to believe that harness rac racing
ing racing of the future would be practically
limited to connection with them.
Speed contests between horses very
naturally are depended upon for the
main feature at the maority of Ameri American
can American fairs in fact, nearly all of them
for the horse, as a product of the
farm and as a mighty factor in the
financial and intellectual advancement
of the farmer, have come very close
to the heart of the people of the coun country
try country who will never agree to place the
noble animal outside their affections.
Then, there is something about racing
that causes it to be readily assimilat assimilated

preciate appreciate any game or sport one must
know the rules at least the rudiments
of them and racing is simplicity
itself, when compared with other
sports wherein complicated rules ne
cessitate study to bring about any anything
thing anything approaching complete enjoy
If one had any doubt about the sin
cere appreciation of a trotting or pac
ing race by any agricultural popula
tion he needs only to attend the "big"
day of any county fair. It matters
not how remote may be the place, how
far from the urban settings the pa patrons
trons patrons may have been reared and have
lived, that crowd will, with very few
individual exceptions, be found eager,
interested spectators of the racing
program of the afternoon and the day
wil be very far gone when they will
feel contented to leave the attraction
and go home.
Horse racing has risen in the minds
of multitudes, if one may use that ex expression
pression expression to indicate the changing
ideas of succeeding generations. Per Perhaps
haps Perhaps it is more correct to state that
the view of the present generation re regarding
garding regarding the sport is immensely chang changed
ed changed from that held by the preceding.
The coming generations will doubt doubtless
less doubtless have less prejudice against the
sport ihan is harbored by the present.
The evolution of management is great
ly responsible for this, too. Years
back when racing of harness horses in
this country was in its infancy there
was much to condemn concerning it,
but gradually the objectionable feat features
ures features have been removed, just as many
of our roughest and toughest frontier
towns of mining camp and cowboy
days have been transformed into cities
much nearer model in deportment
than many of the municipalities whose
organization dated far into the colo colonial
nial colonial days.
So racing has emerged from what whatever
ever whatever extent of deceit and lawlessness
that bore it down in earlier years. No
doubt its evolution in this respect has
done much, also, to commend it to fair
managers of the day. as possessing the
uncommon feature of interesting prac practically
tically practically all of a large audience, many
of whom have been drawn to the
ground without especial interest in
harness horses. For our men and
women of today love fair sport, and
when all is said, they love best that
sport which is thrilling without being
dangerous to those engaged.
However, the fair season is com comparatively
paratively comparatively short season for racing.
Three months cover about all fair
meetings, north and south, while har harness
ness harness racing starts considerably before
the fairs begins. There is undoubted
ly a chance of race considerably be
fore the horses are called upon in
strict race meetings, the prevailing
system remaining simply because it
has become a settled form to start
the sport on or about a certain date.
As the dates of fairs are influenced
by the nature of our seasons and the
maturing of crops, the fairs will never
perhaps start much earlier in the year
than they do now. Should they do so
they would afford to the racing sport
the nearest to perfect conditions that
it will ever meet. A healthy, well
managed fair depends upon its gate
for revenue, chiefly. Its attractions,
including racing, are not compelled to
foot the bill for their own compensa compensation,

Each soldier was allowed to ask a

cars went to the armory between 4
and 5 o'clock and took the soldiers and
their guests to the springs, where a
large crowd had gathered to entei

One very public-spirited lady gave
a beautiful drawn work damask -cloth
to be used on the table, and the lady
who was to be held responsible for the
linen would have preferred one of
less value, but the donor insisted in
loaning it, saying nothing was too
good for the Company A boys, that
they could not hurt it, in fact they
might eat it if they cared to.
All those who donated so generous
ly will be repaid to hear that one of
the boys said. to one of the waiters:
"This is not war; this is heaven." His
words passed from one to another,
and repaid each one for the trouble
and time they had given to the picnic.

Ocala, Fla., Aug. 7, 1917.
Board of County Commssioners of
Mariion County, Ocala, Fla.:
Gentlemen In response to your re request
quest request we hand you herewith answer
to the question whether at the pres
ent meeting of your board you would
be authorized under the law to lower
an assessment of property where
such assessment was not changed by
the board at its meeting in July.
At the session this morning the
writer was under the Impression that
the present meeting was being held
solely for the purpose of hearing
complaints on account of raises in
assessments made by the board of
county commissioners. An examina
tion of section 23 of chapter 5596,
acts 1907, now In force, especially the
last sentence of that section, makes
It plain that the August meeting of
the board of county commissioners is
held for the purpose not only of ad adjusting
justing adjusting complaints as to changes In
assessments made by the board, but
they may also hear and adjust any
complaints of assessments made by
the assessor. The complaint of the
Dutton Phosphate Company assess
ment is one relating to an assessment
fixed by the assessor, and while the
first part of fthe section referred to
would indicate that the only time for
complaint of assessment fixed by the
assessor would be at the July meet
ing of the board, yet the Isst sentence
reads as follows:
"The board of county commission
ers shall meet on the first Monday In
August or September of each year for
the purposes of hearing complaint
from owners or agents of any real
estate or personal property, the val
ue of which shall have been fixed by
the assessor or changed by them, and
for that purpose the board shall sit as
long as it may be necessary."
In case of doubt we believe the
safe ruleis to resolve it in favor of
the tax payer and we would let the
last sentence control in preference to
a contrary intention expressed in the
first part of the section, and hear and
adjust any complaints of assessments
whether fixed by the board or by the
assessor. Hocker & Martin,
By E. H. Martin.
Thereupon the assessment on plant
of said company in precinct No. 24,
was reduced from $6200 to $3500.
