battle summer ahead, our boys at
Camp Wheeler 'confront such a; grim
Christmas as few men now alive have
known. If there is ? anything you
think you can do to brighten the oc

Perhaps you don't realize how well

Judging by the Star's standard, the
new council might have been better
and it might have been worse. It will
probably turn out fair to middling,
and; it may prove itself very good in
deed. Let everybody,' give it a t fair
show and back it up in every good
work it does.
. Some folks sneeringly ask why
Mayor Chace's majority was not
larger. It is not to the credit o
Ocala that it was not larcrer. Some
good citizens voted against Dr. Chace
and -we have no doubt that they
thought they had good reason for do
ing so. But solidly against him was
the discontented element, the dis
loyal element, the whisky element,
the. west end element and the pur
chasable element. A combination o
these -elements in almost any other
town would win, but in Ucaia, even
when all were pulling together, they
were in the minority.
Let us now have local peace.

possessor of a beautiful wrist watch,
she being the winner of the first
prize in the Marion county canning
club work. Alma came second -two
years ago, winning a handsome can

since then. There are three sisters
in the Priest home, Alma, Mabel and
Anna. Mabel came fourth in line this
year, and if Anna had been within the
age limit to compete she would have

you when the government's incom

find him. He will answer your ques

your money, and remove the wrinkles
from your brow. Returns of income
for 1917 must be made between Janu

general information that 'net income'
is the remainder of subtracting ex-,
penses from gross income, ersonal,
family or living expenses in the mean meaning
ing meaning of the law, the exemption being al allowed
lowed allowed to cover such expenses.
"The new exemptions of $1,000 and
$2,000 will add -tons of thousands to
the number of income taxpayers in
this district, inasmuch as practically
every farmer, merchant, tradesman,
professional man and salary worker
and a great many wage workers will
be required to make return and pay
"The law makes it the duty of the
taxpayer to seek out the collector.
Many people assume that if an in income
come income tax form is not sent, or a gov government
ernment government officer does not call, they are
relieved from making report. This is
decidedly in error. It is the other way
round. The taxpayer has to go to the
government and if he doesn't within
the time prescribed, he is a violator
of the law, and the government will
go to him with jts penalties."
