A RANK FRAUD
Editor Star: Some credulous and
superstitious persons in Ocala are
sending to others what they call a
"Red Cross Chain and Ancient Pray Prayer,"
er," Prayer," and asking that, it be passed on
to nine others by the recipient. With
the letter is the assurance that the
one who fulfills the demand and sends
this foolishness to nine others will
receive some wonderful blessing. We
want to protest against this. The
Red Cross Society has issued a state statement
ment statement against this fraud. Any one
who will stop to think will see how
absurd it is. The war has been go going
ing going on now a little over three years.
Yet here we are asked to send on an
"ancient prayer." It could not grow
were "ancient" in three years. This
sending this foolish stuff to nine
friends means that the one who does
this will spend about 25 cents in post
age and for stationery, beside the
time that is required to write nine
letters. Time and money would be
better spend in working for the Red
Cross, and this would not mean the
stirring up of fear that is in the
hearts of many people who will be
disturbed when they get this letter
for fear they will not meet the de
mands that it makes. We hope that
the good people of Ocala will throw
such letters in the fire, if they receive
them, and not inflict- them upon
others by sending to them copies of
this fraudulent thing.

others, and of Mrs. Wilson, Mrs.
Lansing, Mrs. McAdoo and other pat

their very latest idea of helping to
win this world-war is as follows
They have backed morally and finan
cially a wonderful moving picture
called, "A Man Without a Country,
which shows the methods of the Ger
man spy system. The purpose of the
picture is to show innocent, never
suspecting citizens the manner in
which many are being fooled by these
clever people. This German spy sys system
tem system must be downed, and in order to
do so, the people must understand the
situation, and money, money, money
is needed. So to raise a part of the
vast sums required, people in New
York and other large cities have been
going by the thousands to see "A Man
Without a .Country," for which two
dollars was charged, and an Ocala
adys says it is wonderful.
"October the defense month" was
chosen during which to show this
production, which President Wilson
expects to be shown in every town in
the United States.
The American Defense Society
wrote to Mrs. J. E. Chace, asking her
to take charge of this work in Ocala,

Alice Bullock, spent a very busy
morning today trying to secure the

out. Tallahassee Record.
We would advise the governor to
do nothing of the sort. The state has
managed to live for twenty years or
more without reapportionment, and
it can live without it until 1919 with without
out without knowing the difference. About
the only people that are howling for
reapportionment are politicians in
Duval and one or two other big coun counties,
ties, counties, who want more representation.
Marion is a big county and is as
much inconvenienced by the present
system as any other, but it doesn't
want the expense of an extra ses session
sion session laid on the other heavy burdens
the people are now bearing. If Gov.
Catts call3 an extra session of the
legislature, he will drive another nail
in his political coffin.
SOLDIERS USED TO
Amid the horrors of war, not the
least are the various schemes either
to extract money from the soldiers
or from their friends on the excuse of
using it for their benefit.
In the last few days, there have
been two propositions submitted to
the people of Ocala and the btar:
One is to raise money to help provide
recreation for the soldiers; and the
other is to furnish them with eqnip eqnip-ment
ment eqnip-ment for athletic sports.
The first was submitted to the
board of trade as well as the Star. It
is by the "playground and recreation
association of America," which in
tends, so it says, to establish places
of amusement for soldiers in camp,
especially camps that are established
near small towns. It wants $400 from
Marion county for the benefit of the
Marion county company.
The other was submitted to the
Star, which was appointed special
agent to raise $140 to buy an athletic
outfit for A Company.
Let us resolve right now that we
will not entrust money to any strang strangers
ers strangers to spend for our soldiers. If we
have any money for them, let us
write and ask them what they want
us to buy for them with it, or send it
o their company chest for them to
spend as they see fit.
It's the Star's opinion that the
playground and recreation association
is either a fake or is taking on itself
a self-appointed task. The men in
the camps did not go there to have
fun, but to train to beat Germany.
The government provides them with
facilities for considerable recreation
and pays them good salaries, and its
our opinion that the average soldier
when he has time for recreation
would prefer to hunt up for himself
what suits him rather than be herded
on to some playground provided by a
syndicate. Even if the originators of
this scheme are moved by disinterest
ed motives, we can't be sure of the
hundreds of subordinates they must
employ. A part of the money, we un understand,
derstand, understand, is to be used in giving the
men auto rides and getting up dances
for them. In each of these would be
a nice little chance for graft, and the
odds are that lots of them would be
used. The people of every commu
nity where soldiers are camped should
and probably will do what they can to
make life pleasant for the men, and
the ladies and gentlemen among them
will consider it a pleasant duty and
spurn the idea of being paid. If the
camp should be located in a commun
ity of mercenaries, the men will not
want them given the money of home
folks in return for weighed and meas
As for the plan to use the Star to
raise money to buy athletic equip
ment for Company A, there is nothing
doing. We don't know that Com
pany A wants any athletic equipment.
We suspect Company A is getting all
the athletics it wants right now. At
any rate, if we had $140 for the com
pany, we wouldn't hand it over to
some stranger to spend for them. We
would send it to their captain and
tell him to tell the boys to buy what
they wanted with it.
Let us give our soldiers all we can,
but let us not give it to them thru
any middleman. That is, let us not
employ any middleman except Uncle
If you want to give the boys some
thing they can use to good advantage,
help the Star to buy them a motor
truck. That will be a real help to
them, and you will know right where
your money went.
The dispatches announcing the
loss of the Antilles and many of the
gallant men aboard make, sad news
for the American people, but it is
only what we have to expect. It is
war and we will probably have many
ships sunk and men killed before it is
ended. The Germans have a right to
sink our warships and transports and
kill or wound our men, for we will do
the same to them. If they had nevei
sunk anything but warships and
transports, and never made war on
ary but armed men, we would not be
fighting them today. We have gone
to war with them because of their ut
ter disregard of the rules of civilized
war and the dictates of humanity.
When this war is over, the ocean
shall be safe for women and children
to travel on, or there will not be left
any United States of America.
Benjamin is a big bluffer. He mad
that break about the three pretty
gins to us and we offered to wait un until
til until he put the Star to bed if he would
go along, or we would even wait an
other day if he would produce the
three beauties he mentioned, but the
wily rascal failed to make good. Be Besides,
sides, Besides, we offered to sell him all the
clothes we had on for $15 and he
backed down on that, too. Leesburg
That's abusing us for our misfor
tunes. We were afraid the erirls
wouldn't go if they knew a rusty old
piker like us was going to be in the
party, and as for paying Leach $15
for his clothes, he was bluffing him himself,
self, himself, as he knew blamed well we
don't spend that much money on
clothes in six months.

A French physiologist described man as a "digestive tube with arrangements for locomotion and guidance."
It is commonly said that most. people "dig their graves with their teeth." The disastrous effects of constipation

The best method for cleansing the whole
intestinal tract and urging the liver into activity is
to take as much outdoor exercise as possible, drink
hot water before meals, and take a pleasant, laxative,
vegetable pill occasionally. Such a one is made up
of May-apple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap; made
into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made nearly fifty years ago, and sold by
almost all druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
Such simple means will prevent auto-intoxication.

ally. occasionally. The kidneys are an eliminative organ and
are constantly working, separating the poisons from the blood. Uric acid backs up into the system, causing
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other serious disturbances.
This can be avoided by stimulating the kidneys to increased action, and because of its tonic effect
on these organs I would advise any one to purchase Anuric (double or triple strength), which is to be had
nowadays at almost any drug store, and take it three times a day. Also drink hot water before meals.

WOMAN'S CLUB DEPARTMENT
Miss Shelton Souter, Editor
And Now the Park
While we had the soldiers with us,
and Ocala was "doing her bit" by
trying to make them feel at home and
comfortable, it seemed fitting that all
other interests should be put aside
for the time being, but now that the
boys have left us, summer has said
good-bye and Ocala has resumed her
normal every-day life, it seems to be
an opportune time to put in a plea
for the park, and Mr. Benjamin has
opened the way very nicely in his well
written, interesting letter to Mrs. W.
T. Gary, president of the Woman's
Club, which appeared in the Star
Saturday afternoon, Oct. 14.
While our committee has been giv.
ing Ocala a rest the weeds in the
park have been busy growing until
now one could almost get lost in the
jungle of rank growth, but that does
not discourage us, for it only attests
to the great fertility of the soil there
and its suitability for a park site, for
we know that flowers and shrubs
would grow just as easily.
If Mr. Benjamin could have heard
the report of our committee, which
was read at the last meeting of the
club in May and which will be pub-
ished later, it would have surprised
him to learn the amount of work
that has been done during the year.
Twice with the assistance of the city
carts and men, loaned us by the street
committee, of which Mr. D. E. Mc-
ver is chairman, the weeds have
been cut down ana ournea ana tne
place cleared of all dead limbs and
brush. Mr. Marsh had charge of the
men, and he took an especial interest
in having the work well done.
Capt. Drake surveyed several of
the walks according to Mr. Swope's
plan. These walks were graded,
cleaned up by the street force under
Mr. Marsh and everything began to
ook quite park-like, but the rainy
season came on, ana oi course it was
impossible to keep down the weeds,
but if the water was bad for the
weeds it was just the thing for the
trees planted last spring by our com committee,
mittee, committee, assisted by the forestry com
mittee. There were 25 trees planted,
and in spite of the extreme cold that
came immediately after, most of the
trees are doing splendidly.
"We knew in the beginning what a
stupendous task we had undertaken,
but we never dreamed of doing more
than get the movement started, and
try to get the city interested enough
to take up the work. We have met
with a great deal of opposition, both
in the council and outside, but we
have also met with a great deal of
encouragement, and the completion of
the union station only makes us more
determined that Ocala shall have a
park there, where tourists in passing
can have a pleasant place to spend
the time between trains.
Now if some public spirited engi
neer will only lay out the walk where
the old S. S. O. & G. roadbed was,
diagonally across, so that we can
have it graded, our committee will
plant dogwood on either side, and we
will indeed have a "thing of beauty
and a joy forever."
Capt. Drake was trying to locate
the exact western boundary of the
park, so that we could have a fringe
a fringe of bamboo clear across, and
what could be more beautiful? Be

the city will take away that old rock
crusher and leave enough of the
grotto to beautify. I quote from the
Tucson Citizen, sent me by a friend:
"The city has five parks, which are
being improved as the requirements
of the city demand. They are Sunset
park, between the county courthouse
and the city hall, Santa Rita park on
the northside, Rincon park on the
east near the schools, and Military
Plaza, in which the armory is locat
ed. The armory and the Carnegie
library form one group of public
buildings with the Scottish Rite Ca Cathedral
thedral Cathedral nearby. The city hall, county
courthouse and Elks' club form an
other, with Sunset park in the center.
A bond issue of ?25,000 has been ap
plied to the improvement of these
parks during the past few years. The
people have learned to guard the
parks jealously and any attempt to
use them for other purposes meets
with effective protest. Trees, shrub
bery and flowers are maintained by
Tucson has about 25,000 inhabi

our city grows we could have others.
