specimens on the side, so we were
agreeably surprised to find it a really
extensive and comprehensive fair.
The fair grounds are in the center
of the town of Tavares, the county
seat of Lake. The principal, part of
the fair is in a large, two-story build building.

not only in maps and, drawings and

looked like there had not : been: any
freeze in Lake. He said there, had
been, but he was surprised himself to
see how much fruit there was., ( Of
course, it was of the best quality, .as
Lake has some of the best situated
groves in the state. The agricultural
products were good but not, profuse.
We have seen ten times as much at
the Marion County Fair- however,
this was only, the second day at Ta Tavares,
vares, Tavares, and more exhibits coming in
hourly. There are lots of goodfarms'
in Lake, but it hasn't occurred to. the
farmers to go to. their f airmen masse
yet. l'r'
One highly! ..commeicJable i feature
of the fair is the community idea.
Each neighborhood hasa i "department

to itself, just like-a county has at the
state fair. Leesburg had three depart departments,'
ments,' departments,' and the other prominent com communities
munities communities one. each. This lis an idea
that might be, jnqst; profitably copied
at our fair. Anthony might have a de department,
partment, department, Blitchtqn another, and so
on thru the listdf communities. It
would create a friendly rivalry that
would be highly beneficiaL ;
Another thing that pleased- us-was
to see that some of the "products-let-tuce,
for instance, was.set out in. the

ground and carefully watered, keep keeping

it must be remembered that Lake

The stock exhibit was small. We

This was our second visit to Ta Tavares.
vares. Tavares. The first was made about thir thirty
ty thirty years ago, when we dropped off a
F.' R. & N. freight train in the mid middle
dle middle of a November, night and judged
by the multiplicity of railroad tracks
and headlights .that we had hit a
town about the size of Wayross.
Next morning, when we could see
it, it-shrunk up right smart. But it
was a rather live little burg. It was
the terminal of more railroads than
any other town in Florida. It was
the southern terminus of the F. R. &
N and northern of the Tavares, Or Orlando1
lando1 Orlando1 and Atlantic (both now the
Seaboard); and the northern terminus
of the1 Tavares & Gulf. By reason
of that Chinese puzzle, the St. Johns
and Eustis railroad, it connected with
the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key
West on one side and the Florida
Southern on the other. Florida had a
whole lot of independent railroads1
just then, and the names of some of
them were as long as a clothesline.
Tavares had a four-story opera
house, the most pretentions j one in
the state,, and a, waterfront lined
with sailboats. And for breakfast
that morning we paid only 25 cents
for. all f the biscuit, fried fish and cof coffee,
fee, coffee, we could surround.
St. Clair Abrams was in the hey heyday
day heyday of his glory then. He was trying
to make Tavares the railroad center
and capital of the state. It is a much
better location for the' state capital
than the one we now. have, and if
South Florida ever has sense enough
to flockoff 'by herself, the claims of
old Tav for the statehouse should be
considered, -y : :.v
We left the fair grounds and tried
to figure out the locations of thirty
years past. About the only things, we
could, locate were' the railroad tracks,
the,, two dingy t stations of the Sea Seaboard
board Seaboard and, Coast .Line and the ruins

of the opera house. A good deal of
the town we had held in memory had
been wiped off the map by fire twen twenty
ty twenty or more years ago. There was not
a sail on lovely Lake Dora a gaso gasoline
line gasoline cruiser lay alongside the club clubhouse,
house, clubhouse, and a few rowboats were
moored on the waterfront.
However, nobody need suppose Ta Tavares.
vares. Tavares. is dead.. It' is a pretty and well
situated place, on the gentle slope
rising from one of Florida's most
beautiful lakes. There are a number
of solid and conveniently constructed
business houses, most of them of
brick, and many handsome homes. It
has one of the best courthouses in
the state, and is backed up by a good
farming country.
Out second visit to Tavares was
made in company with Mr. R. W.
Blacklock, his wife and daughter,
Bernice and Dr. H. F. Walker. Mr.
Blacklock is our county demonstra demonstration
tion demonstration agent,' an. energetic and well well-posted
posted well-posted young man; worth his salary
several times over to the county.
Miss Bernice is five years old, fail
and frisky, as fresh as a rosebud
and busy as a bee. She already has
several beaux, of .whom we are the
latestthe too-latest. Dr. Walker is
connected with the bureau of animal
industry of the agricultural depart
ment and is a very clever young mam
We made the trip in Blacklock's
whizzcart. Blacklock thinks an auto
is intended to go somewhere in and
acts accordingly. He makes that, fliv flivver
ver flivver fliv, ,and after reeling off twelve
"miles in twenty-three minutes apolo apologized
gized apologized for going so slow, saying that
he had to be careful when his family
was along. V . '
We made the fifty miles to Tavares
in less than two f hours, including
about ten minutes stop at Leesburg.
The Marion, county road was solid
but rather rough and holy. When we
crossed the Lake county line, and hit
that broad, smooth, hardclay road,
Blacklock stepped on the gas and we
heard the Ford laugh. That surely is
one peach of a road, and it runs thru
a pretty country, too, all the way to
Tavares, y'-. ;w.-y"y ... ''v

called it sleepy a few years ago could
now be indicted for libel.

thru a pretty and fertile- country., On
reaching the outskirts of Tavares, the
location of the fair was at once indi indicated

On arriving, our' party was at once
greeted by Mr. .William Gomme,
manager of the fair and county dem demonstrator

of the party the freedom e of the
grounds. v
Onelinteresting person we met was
Miss lo ra L. Peet of Tavares, who
was in charge of the school exhibit.
She is onej of, those peop"le to whom
the instruction of. the young i& an in,
stinct, and is a most charming, lady
beside. Miss Clarine Hoyt of Tavares
is in charge of the canning club work,
and the exhibit does her and her

A greatly interested party is Prof.
W T. Kennedy of Umatilla, superin superintendent
tendent superintendent of. .public instruction foi
Lake, on whose .broad shoulders rest
much. of the responsibility.
Busily taking care of, one impor important,
tant, important, exhibit, we found a young man
who looked like, he wa3 hardly old
enough, to : vote, and were surprised
to be; told he. was County Commis

sioner i Lowry. And more surprised
to learn there was yet a younger man
on the board. They catch them young

in Lake.

We also met H. B. Carpenter, prin

cipal of the co-educational and indus

trial school at Montcverde. They are

doing great things at Monteverde

which is in the Lake, Apopka region.
It is a private school, but the county

helps it. It has a. national reputation,
some of its pupils coming from as

far north as Connecticut. It made

good exhibit at the fair. The 'girls

made a splendid showing of house

hold win-k. The boys certainly know

how to handle ; the implements of
honest toil-they had : a farm ; exhibit

of great merit downstairs, and up

stairs they had a complete set of
furniture which, they, had shaped out

of Florida wood, pohshed.and stained.

The Red Cross is busy in Lake

the ladies of the chapter had coffee

and sandwiches, pies, cakes, and can

dies, cool drjnks and cream, and were

in evidence everywhere. Mrs. H. K.

Morrison was in charge, and efficient

ly helping her was a lady well known

and much esteemed in Ocala Mrs. E
H. Mote. ,;;

Another lady helping in" one of the

school departments was Mrs. Pea

body, wife of Don Peahody, who made
lots of friends during his sojourn in
Ocala some years ago. Don is in the

abstract business, in; Tavareshe has

a good business, a nice Jiome and ;
pretty wife, and' he always has ;

warm welcome for an Ocala friend.

course we drifted into the newspaper

office. The Tavares Herald, in its 37th

year, is a better, paper than, ever be

fore under the management of J. W.

Belh Mr. Bell is 7 an old-fashioned

printer does all his own work. He

never writes an item, but goes, to the

cases and set it up. We know how to
appreciate that for, we used to do the

same way. It was in doljig such work

that we thoroughly learned the art

of r condensation, which our readers

regretfully observe ,we don't, always

use. The Herald: was burned out ; a

couple of years ago, when the opera

house, in which was located its of

fice, was destroyed. It now has its
own building, a new plant,: is a good

paper and js doing well. v

We were' hailed by Mr.. J. W. Hun-r

ter, a prominent attorney, and had

quite a pleasant chat with him. Mr.
Hunter's office is in his own building,

a neat brick block. We also met Mr.
Harry Duncan, another clever young
lawyer, who also has his own office
building. Messrs. Duncan and Hunter

have their offices so situated that
they enfilade the. coirthouse it is
impossible for a man ltd go in the
front way without one of them get getting
ting getting a chance to size him up. They
say that when Sheriff Smyth has u
man. he knows is guilty he takes him
in the back way. Messrs. Hunter and
Duncan are well known in Ocala. Mr.
Hunter was a small .boy during tht,
interesting time that it was a breach
of etiquette for a prominent citizen
to visit Tavares .without wearing a
.44, but he well remembers most of
the heroes of those goiodold days..

Os maybe just a candle that you burn,

Anyway it's pleasant V
Just to amble- right along,
Turning out a sermon
Or turning out a song.
Oftentimes the handle takes a notion
to decline
And then you've got to double all
your energies supine,
But the added effort triumphs
In a final burst of speed
And you've got to turn the handle
If. you want to live your creed.
The world is full of handles that need
turning at their best, .
With never any holiday and seldom

For kindness out of labor
Is the kind of sweet that stays
For the dream behind the shadows
In the light of far-off days.

Mr. Jake Goldman returned last
night f rom-a week's visit with friendfe
in Savannah. He told the Star man a
secret, but same shall not be divulged
for several weeks.,
Messrs. A. J..- Stevens and S. P.
i Burton were in 'the city today to
move a load of store fixtures to Sparr,
where they will 6. a few days open
a general merchandise store Imder
the firm name of Burton-Stevens Co.
Mr. Arthur Cobb, of the firm of
Nichols & Cobb, is showing his
friends and patrons a pair of pretty
nfyu inuica just uivugui 111 xxuiu xvcu-
tucky by Mr. Nichols. Tbey are as
nearly alike as two peas, and if they
are not twins Arthur is safe anyway,
for no one would ever Ibe able to
prove it. V"S
The Star is informed that while
the damage to the dam of the Florida
Power company on the Wlthlacoochee
' is not very extensive, it may cause
the plant to shut down several days.
The leak is near one of the banks,
the water cutting thru the earth at
the side rather than the dam. It wih
not be a very big job to fill the gap,
but the water must fall considerably
before it can be reached, and then
when the hole is filled it will take
some time for the water to rise to the
necessary head again. '

"It was almighty, crop. The actual In Increase
crease Increase la about 500 million bushels.
And this extra store of grain Is com coming
ing coming on to the market lh the nick of
time, since the American wheat sur surplus
plus surplus has beemsent to help feed famine
threatened Europe.
Just as it happened In the Colonial
;days, the War of the Revolution, and
ithe Civil War, corn has actually be be-jcome
jcome be-jcome the nation's mainstay.
In the entire list of America's food
commodities there is no Item that Is
better than corn. In puddings, bread,
corn pone, and as hominy combined
jwlth meat, or eggs, porn la without a
npeer. Housewives are fast learning
ithe large number of delicious dishes
ithat may be made with corn' and their
v jf amllles are benefiting by, an increas increased

iany other cereal, contains all of the
elements essential to maintaining life
and health. . -.- -.; -:
In ofuer that the fighting raen
abroad and in the army camps k home
.may be fed, and to order tiat actual
famine may be kept from the nations
associated with. America la the war,
the citizens of America are finding
;corn products delicious and palatable
on wheatless days" and glory ia the
jfact that "wheatless days" here mean
.more wheat for the' war worn allied
'nations ia Europe. x ;
j England, France and -Italy must be
(fed from America's great storehouse.
They -. will get some corn especially
jltaly -but most of their grain ship ship-Iments
Iments ship-Iments must be wheat Their ability
to use corn is small compared to the
facilities they hare for using wheat.
And it Is the opinion of officials In
Washington that the ptesent Is no time
to try and change the eating habits of
Europe. - 9 ;'
America's greatest use of corn will
. be in the form of corn bread and corn
meal, mixed with wheat inxthe making
of leavened bread.
Mixed with 80 per cent wheat flour,
corn meal can be used In bread mak making,
ing, making, producing a : loaf more nutritious
than bread baked with wheat alone.
It Is a fact corn millers" will verify
jthat dozens of thelarge American bak bak-jers

Corn syrup to sweeten corn cakes.
