son of a Mason county farmer, who

of Smith "to avoid, publicity."
The father received a message to today
day today from the war department in
Washington reading:
i. "Deeply regret to inform you that
Private John J. Smith, Company F,
Sixteenth infantry, was wounded in
France." '.
"That's my boy," cried 'Mr.- Lake.
I bet he nut up a tough scrap. No
German could stake him alive." Then
Mr. Lake opened a cable message
from the army headquarters in France
reading: .'
"John J. Smith Lake was wounded
in arm and side. He dropped his rifle
and with revolver fought his way
through communicating trenches, thru
the German barrage, to an observa
tion post. There, with a corporal and
two othef privates, he stopped to
make a stand should the raiding
party pursue them."
"That's John, all right," said the
proud father as tears came to his
eyes. "He'd fight to the last drop.
John wrote me only a month ago that
he was feeling fine and growing
stouter: and he was a husky chap be
fore he started. No, sir; no German
would take him alive. He said in his
letter to me: 'N. The Germans will
never take me prisoner: I shall die
first. There was no quitter in that
boy. When the Germans tacked him
he gave a "good account of himself.

COMMISSION HEARD THE

The case of the Ocklawaha Valley

heard by the state railroad commis commission

Present were all the members of the
commission, Chairman Burr, Messrs.
Blitch and Dunn, and their attorney,
Mr. McMullen. A considerable num number
ber number of people were present from along
the line of road, and some from Palat-
ka. Oiir Ocala business men did not
seejn to take much interest in the
matter," few being present and none
offering any objection to the road
quitting work. i
The hearing developed further proof
of the truth of the old saying, "There
are two sides to each question." Peo People
ple People living along the line of the road
told how necessary the road was, not
only to their prosperity but their ex existence;
istence; existence; how they had founded homes
because either the road was there, or
promised, and how they had every
right to demand that it be kept in op operation.
eration. operation. On thf other, hand, Mr. William
Hocker, attorney for the road, told its
history, showed how it was impossi impossible
ble impossible for its owners to operate it except
at a loss, which is something no busi
ness man could be expected to do. His
argument was backed by the testi testimony
mony testimony of Messrs. Hollinrake and Tar-
ver.
A Star reporter interviewed Mr. R.
C. Dunn of the commission at the
Harrington in the evening. Mr. Dunn
could not say what the decision of the
commission would be. He said it
realized what a hardship it would be
to people of the .section traversed by
the road for it to stop running trains;
also, that it was evident that the
road's business and receipts were
light. The commission will do its best
to render a just decision in a few
days
. The Star would not be surprised if
the commission granted the petition
of the owners of the road. As we
have said before, the commission has
to look at matters from a commercial
rather than a judicial standpoint, and
there is no doubt that the. road is be
ing operated at a loss. There is no
law to compel its owners to keep it in
operation if they decide to quit.
The matter, however, can be taken
into the courts, which can be asked to
put the road in the hands of a receiv
er, and if the commission decides for
the owners of the road,-the Star ad
vises that this be done. v

EFFORT TO RAISE
TRUCK FUND IS OFF
The. Star regrets to announce that
the attempt to raise money to buy a.
truck for Company A will have to be
called off.
First Lieutenant R. L.' Marsh, who
arrived home for a brief furlough
Wednesday night, informs the Star
that there is no doubt that the com company,
pany, company, with thp regiment ani division,
will leave Camp Wheeler in a short
time, and the company will not be
able to carry-the truck with it, so to
buy it now will be useless.
Following is the list of those who
have contributed. Several of them
have not paid in, the Star prefering
that they kept the money until it was
called for. We have something over
fifty dollars, which we will return to
the donors unless they would rather
have it given to the Red Cross or the
Y. M. C. A. The money will be very
acceptable to both funds, and while
it would not go directly to our boys,
it would help them by helping all.
Will all who want their money
either returned, or given to the Red
Cross orY. M. C. A., please notify the
Star at once.
Lieut. Marsh was not at liberty to
say where he thought the regiment
was going. Judging by what we hear
from other sources, its most likely
destination is Mineola on Long Island,
from .where; it is likely to go to
France in the spring.

She hates to have you go;
But when she goes away herself

To laugh at you and say,
"Little Only, Little' Lonely,

Delightful Picture Today i
V A Perfection feature which prom promises
ises promises to be very pretty and charming
entitled "The Apple Tree Girl,", will
be shown at the Temple today, star staring
ing staring the dainty and popular actress,
Shirley Mason. Miss ,Mason is a sis sister
ter sister of Viola Dana, who hasbeen seen
in the movies here several times.
"How can I make everybody like
me?".
"How can I make myself famous?"
"How can I marry a millionaire?'
These are the three questions
which Charlotte Marlin in "The Ap Apple
ple Apple Tree Girl," sets out to answer.
The first she answers by being nice
to everyone she meets, whether he or
she be great or small. The second she
answers by going in for sports and
coming out national golf champion
and the third well the third is some something
thing something of a stickler. It might appear
quite easy' for a pretty girl to marry
a millionaire perhaps it is but
never having been either a pretty girl
or a millionaire we don't know wheth whether
er whether it is or npt. At any rate there
comes. a stumbling block in the path
of Charlotte Marlin. -The millionaire!
proposes and with a nod or a "yes"
she can gratify her heart's desire.
But Charlotte has, in the meantime,
consulted her heart which has chang changed
ed changed somewhat since the first and it
says "no" and no it is with a com comparatively
paratively comparatively poor doctor displacing the
millionaire. This is one of the most
amusing comedy-dramas that the
Temple has offered for many a day.
