exhibits of the Floirda State Fair to

be held at Jacksonville Feb. 26 to

best this county affords at that fair,
and Mr. Koehler agreed to reserve" a
choice space.

according to Mr. Koehler, it may be
assumed Marion county will be sure
to do her share to make this the

Among the interesting features of
the Florida State Fair, Mr. Koehler
calls attention to the magnificent gov government

The crew of a German submarine,
which torpedoed the; Belgian Prince,
assembled tne crew of that vessel on
the deck of their boat, took away their
life preservers, and then submerged
their craft, leaving theJ sailors swim-

land. Only one escaped to tell tne taie.
One of our destroyers sunk a German

The Star never prints one of those
one-winded Thanksgiving proclama
tions if it can help it. The fiction ex exists
ists exists that the president writes them,
but it is doubtful if the president ever
sees one until it is laid before him. It
is the duty of a clerk in the depart
ment of state to write one every year,
and judging by the way things are
done in the government departments,
that is about all he does for his- sal
ary. We suppose the governor of a
state occasionally, seeing the presi president's
dent's president's proclamation, writes an entire
ly unnecessary echo, but as a general
thing the state proclamations are also
written by clerks. There is a good
deal of sniveling hypocrisy about
Thanksgiving proclamations. There
was one governor (we forget his name
and state) who had the spunk m one
exceptionally bad year to come out
and say there was nothing to be
thankful for, but none so far have had
the manhood to imitate him.

The story told the Star by a dis discharged

ants attendants who were too careless and un unfeeling
feeling unfeeling to give water to sick men in
their care is a proof for the strong
suspicion that a good many men who
expected to be drafted volunteered
into r the hospital branch, hoping by
so doing to comparatively keep out
of danger. It's the Star's opinion
that the government should give hos hospital
pital hospital ?work to men-who for slight de defects
fects defects are not able to measure up to
the military standard. A man whose
eyesight is not the best, or who is not
quite, able to march, all day under a
soldier's load, may nevertheless, if
brave, kind and helpful, be able to do
the best of -work for the sick and
wounded. An able-bodied man who
joins r the .hospital corps because he
thinks he thereby escapes some dan danger
