FOR COTTON LAND
The freedom of this county so fai
from boll weevil is going to make a
great demand from non-resident
farmers for cotton lands the coming
season, j Already many have come
here to locate and rent land and we
believe that many times the acreage
will be planted in cotton the coming
season than was this. If the boll
weevil does strike Marion county, it
will probably not be in large num numbers
bers numbers the next season, and even should
the insects come? by early planting
all but the top fruit can have time to
mature before the bug gets in its
work. We understand one firm from
the weevil-infested sections of West
Florida has just leased a big farm
close to the city on the west and will
plant 300 acres to cotton. These men
will plant their corn, pinders, etc., at
home in West Florida, and plant the
farm here to cotton only.

You. can get a lot of different things
for 25 cents; a list of them would be
quite an extensive one. You can get
a couple of pretty good cigars; you

can get a pretty decent pair of cotton
socks; you may even think a 25 cent
necktie will do. A quarter used to to-pay

You can think of a lot of things

over-populated centers and it will

We think government energies are
being applied in the wrong direction
and the American people will go clear
through to chaos and back before we
get fairly started on this war if the
government does not stop its attempt
to make food prices tumble. We are
raising wages in the cities to compen compensate
sate compensate for the advanced cost of living
and in doing it are attracting labor
from the farms. Raising yourself by
your boot straps is scientific when
compared with the economic farce of
trying to compensate for declining
food supplies by raising wages to city
labor, which is divorced fsom the
land. The way to -stimulate food pro production

.The Hoover administration has un undertaken
dertaken undertaken a wide-spread program and
daubtless there are flaws in it. The
Star believes in the infallibility of
the law of supply and demand, at the
same time, it thinks that extortion is
a crime and it is as much the duty
of the government to try to repress
extortion as any other crime. One of
Mr.. Hoover's ieas is to awaken the
public conscience, so the people will
not practice extortion on 'the one
hand nor indulge in wastefulness on
the other. If this could be done, no
regulations would be necessary.
There is, however, a great deal of
truth in the dispatch to the New i.
Our small towns are cumbered and
our cities are fairly swarming with
parasites. Men who can make little
or nothing at "genteel or easy jobs,
or who can't obtain any such jobs,
live from hand to mouth, or by down downright
right downright grafting, and in the case of
criminals by robbery. The govern government
ment government has some chance to make the
latter class useful the former is be beyond
yond beyond its reach.
If things keep on going as they are
going now, however, the time isn't
far off when this class will have to
find work or starve. This wouldn't
be so regrettable, but for the fact
that they will bring many useful
people to starvation with them.
In the meantime, not only are mil
lions of fertile acres untended, but a
large proportion of the farms we
have are not fully cultivated. Almost
anywhere the farmers are in need of
more hands to help tend their fields
and care for their stock.
Almost any man can do farm work.
It comes hard at first on those not
used to it, but there is always some something
thing something around a farm that a willing
man can do. Almost any man who
would rather earn his board and a
little money every day by honest
work than sit in an office whose rent
he can't pay, or stand idle on the
street corners, could find enough
work to earn his keep in one or three
If this war goes on much longer, it
will bring this world down to a test
of a survival of the fittest. It will
tear things to pieces, but if it kills all
the useless people, even if a lot of
the useful ones go with them, it will
be a better world twenty years from
walk from town."
A move is on foot to secure a par pardon
don pardon for Robert Lassiter, a white man
sent up from Volusia county for the
wanton murder while he, Lassitei-,
was drunk, of Charles Womble,. a
half-witted boy. There is not much
use in trying to obtain a pardon for
an able-bodied negro convict, who can
do six days good work every week
on the state farm, and who can be
hired out to the lessees. But a whiU
man, who costs more than he is worth
in the prison, and who can scare up
a. little money on the outside, stands
a pretty good chance of a pardon, no
matter what his crime.
One of the uses to which a portion
of the big war fund of the Y. M. C.
A. is to be put is that of caring for
the war prisoners. There are about
14,000,000 men under arms for the
Allies and some six million prisoners
of war. These prisoners are really
suffering more than any of the men
under, arms because they are far
from home, can get no news, never
enjoy the flush of victory, and never
see a friendly face save those of fel fellow
low fellow prisoners. They are to be helped
with the money which America is to
raise between Nov. 11 and. 19.
