Secretary Baker does say, however,
that he does not favor universal mili military

As to the expeditionary force in

describes also the organization of

"The purpose of this organization

. High tribute is paid to the "splen.

"Those who believed," he adds,
"that the obvious and daily exhibition

Some people, without much reason
in opinion, are worried over the future

In the first place, Ocala, tho quiet,

will see that all our old, established
business houses are yet open and
carrying on a good trade. They have
large stocks, and are not having any
difficulty in disposing of their goods.

There are two reasons why the

of our young men have gone into the

else does their absence, and the result
that their relations and friends are
constantly thinking of them, take the
sparkle and snap out of the business
and social life of the town.
Another reason is that a number
of mechanics and other men engaged
in industrial occupations have gone to
those cities in northern states where
they can make bigger money. While
Ocala is doing good business, it has
