The Star has not had an opportu opportunity
nity opportunity to study the provisions of Sena Senator
tor Senator Chamberlain's bill to create a
"war council," but it doesn't like the
idea on general principles. We are
afraid, of any "war cabinet consisting
of three distinguished citizens of
demonstrated executive ability." No
citizen of this country has so far
demonstrated any marked executive
ability in dealing with war problems.
Such a council would be certain to an
tagonize and interfere with the pres
ident and the army staff and that
would spell disaster with big capital
letters., We don't blame Mr. Wilson
for fighting the idea, and it behooveth
every, citizen with. a boy in the serv service

The reports in some of the news-
papersabout the ill-supplied condition
of American troops in France are not
borne out by our Ocala boys on the
western front.' They write home that
they are well provided for and well
equipped.- It is probably true that our
first expeditionary force had to buy a
good many supplies in France, but
they- paid for them in good American
money. Some of our young officers
have written home that they were
sorry they didn't' wait until, they
reached Paris to buy their; equipment,
as they could have bought most of the
articles., there, for about half , what
they, had to pay for them in America.
. Ocala is loyally supporting the
fuel administration, and its loyalty is
no less marked because its support-is
moral .rather, -than material.-. As t a
matter of fact, cuttings off flights and
power in Ocala does not add to the
supply of ; fuel in any other ; part of
the country. Its most; marked effect
is to decrease the slender revenues of
the city and consequently make the
load theavierion the taxpayers. How?
ever, as MrK Garfield says, ; its war,
and the tail must go with the hide.
. Editor' Star: I am advised by the
secretary of agriculture, that the de
partment is now ready to put into ef
fect the provision of the food control
act in which the secretary is author
if ed to distribute to the5 farmers of
the coimty 100,000 tons of nitrate of
soda for fertilizer purposes. This
fertilizer will be sold to the farmer
at actual cost, plus the transporta
tion charges from the port of arrival.
This cost, I am informed will be
$75.50 per ton.
Farm demonstration agents in each
county will be supplied with all nec necessary
essary necessary blanks, etc., with which the
farmers can make application for the
fertilizer. These applications should
fbe signed and returned to the county
agents by February 4th, who will for forward
ward forward them on to Washington accom accompanied
panied accompanied by the money to cover them
The department will designate sorat
bank, association or individual in each
county, with whom the farmer should
deposit the amount of his purchase at
the time application is made.
As the supply-is only 100,000 tons
and .will be distributed all over the
United States, I would urge that our
Florida farmers get busy at once and
get m touch with their county agents

In France the German system of
forced labor and deportations, with its
horrors, was the same as in Belgium.
In this article is shown the real iden

Died regions. This can be done from
the official documents and from a sum

harrowing details may be gathered
from the scores of depositions which
accompany the note addressed by the
French government to the governments
of the neutral powers July 23, 1916.
These are on file in the state depart

The attitude of England makes the
provisioning of the population more

country. This offer has not had the
success that was expected.
"In consequence of this the inhab inhabitants

removed into the country. Persons
deported will be sent to the interior
of the occupied territory in France, far

employed in agricultural labor, and
not on any military work whatever.
By this measure they will be given
the opportunity of providing better
for their subsistence.

Process of De-Inking Old Newspapers
So They May Be Used Again Has

Two of the more recent develop developments
ments developments in the crusade to bring down
the high cost of paper have been the
the tests for making newsprint from
old papers and further consideration
of the subject of producing fibrous

has been evolved by Dr. Thomas Jes Jes-person

person Jes-person has invented a solution which
successfully removes the ink from old
paper and bleaches it a pure white.
The ink used in printing newspapers
is largely constituted of lamp black
and various oils.
Although it has been generally
known for years that chlorine would
accomplish this de-inking process, no
attempts, prior to Doctor Jesperson's
experiment, are known to have been
made to introduce this system as a
commercial factor. About 5,000 tons
of newsprint are consumed daily in
the United States in the printing of
newspapers. The old papers are gen generally
erally generally sold to paper manufacturers
as old stock. Every paper-mill has
a number of girls in its employ who
assort the old papers received, and
about three tons dally are thrown
asfde. This castoff material is now
used in the manufacture of cheaper
grades of paper, boxboard, etc
A mill at Neenah has made paper
by reducing such castoff paper to pulp
after it has been bleached. Paper
made by this method, using the de de-Inking
Inking de-Inking substance, has been used by
some small newspapers, who report
that it is apparently not different from
the brand-new material. The subject
of manufacturing pulp for paper from
cotton stalks has come up repeatedly
in the past and has been under con consideration
