CAN YOU SAVE 25c
If you can, that 25c will buy you one of the new U. S. Government "Baby
Bonds.' And that "Baby Bond" will pay A interest, the same rate of interest
that you would get if you owned a $1,000 or a $10,0u0 U. S. Liberty Bond, pro provided
vided provided you buy additional Baby Bonds from time to time at 25e each until you
have 16 of them:
These new Baby Bonds, issued by the U. S. Government, are called War Savings Stamps and you
can buy them at any bank or postoffice.
When you have bought 16 of these War Savings Stamps, which it won't take you long to get,
you can take them to thebank or postoffice and exchange them for a $5 War Savings Stamp, merely
by paying a few cents additional in cash. The additional amount you pay will be only 13 cents if you
get your $5 stamp this month, 14 cents if you get it in JJarch, and one cent additional for each

month after that.

t
This plan makes it so easy, that not only can every patriotic, true-blue man and woman own one of
these $5 Stamps or Bonds, but every schoolboy and schoolgirl in America can own one also.
Every child in the entire United States, every child in every big'city, every child in every town and
in every village, every child on every farm and. in every settlement no matter. where it is, can now be become
come become the owner of one or more of these Bonds, which are practically the same as U. S. Government
Liberty Bonds.
And every father and mother in America can own one too.

If you keep on buying 25c. War Savings Stamps as often as you can, and keep exchanging them for
$5 Stamps, it won't be very long till you have quite a lot of $5 Stamps.
And when you have 20 of the $5 Stamps, you will own a complete War Savings Certificate, for
which the Government will pay you $100 in cash five years from now, which will be all you have paid
for the Stamps and 4 per cent compound interest on every penny besides.
By paying only 25 cents at a time, you will have a $100 U. S. Government Bond before you know it.
TO DRAW OUT YOUR MONEY
If you should need your money before the five years are up, you can go to the postoffice and get it
any time, just the same as if you had it in a savings bank. '
And you will not only get back every cent you have paid, but also a little interest, though not so
much as you will if you leave the money "with the Government for five years.
WHY YOU SHOULD SAVE
The important reason why you should put every quarter you can into War Savings Stamps is that
you will be helping, your country.
Every time you take 25 cents to the postoffice or bank for a War Savings Stamp, you will, be help helping
ing helping to win this war.
You will be helping to send food to our soldiers.
You will be helping to send them warm clothing and shoes.
You will be helping to build ships and aeroplanes and rifles and big guns.
For your country's sake, for humanity's sake, we ask you to buy a 25c. War Savings Stamp today,
and as many more as you can from this time on.
Go into the first bank you come to, or go to the postoffice or any branch postoffice, and get a War
Savings Stamp for 25 cents or a $5 Stamp for $4.13.

Another Poem by T. A. Daly
All the world just sits and listens
J And applauds me to the skies.
Though it only be a couplet

Wherein "bliss" and "kiss" may

rhyme
I am certain that the verdict
Will be gracious everytime.
When I undertake a sonnet
To relieve my throbbing heart
All the world just sits and listens
In approval of my art.
Though the editors be frigid,
Though the lips in scorn are curled,
They are impotent to bar me
From my audience the World.
All the world just sits and listens
In a tremor of delight
While I read my ardent verses
That my passion bids me write.
No, my verses are not published,
Oh, good gracious, no! You see,
I just whisper them to Phyllis:
She is all the world to me.

Frca Three Years' Suffering. Sayj
Cardni Made Her Well.
Texas City, Tex. In an interesting
statement, Mrs. 0. H. Schill, of this town,
says: "For three years I suffered untold
agony with my head. I was unable to
do any of my work.
I just wanted, to sleep all the time, fof
that was the only ease 1 could get, when
I was asleep. I became a nervous wreck
Just from the awful suffering with my
head.
I was so nervous that the least noise
would make me jump out of my bed. I
had no. energy, and was unable to do
anything. My son, a young boy, had to
do all my household duties.
I was not able to do anything until I
took CarduL,, I took three bottles in all,
and it surely, cured me of those awful
headaches. That has been three years
ago, and I know the cure is permanent,
for I have never had any headache since
taking CarduL
Nothing relieved me until I took Cardui.
It did wonders for me."
Try Cardui for your troubles made
from medicinal ingredients recommended
in medical books as being of benefit in
female troubles, and 40 years of use has
proven that the books are right. Begin
taking Cardui today. NC-134

TEMPERANCE NOTES
(By the National Woman's Chris Christian
tian Christian Temperance Union.)
WHY NOT PROHIBIT WATER?
A letter clipped from one of the
New York morning papers has been
sent us for publication. The writer
urges that water should be prohibited
as it causes the deaths of thousands
of people by engendering typhoid and
other diseases. This reasoning is typ typical
ical typical of much that emanates from the
liquor traffic. Water does not cause
disease. It has never poisoned any
man. It is only when some poison
like typhoid pollutes the water that
there is danger. The remedy is to
prohibit or do away with the poison,
not the water. And this, says Tem Temperance,
perance, Temperance, is precisely what modern san sanitary
itary sanitary science is trying to do. We no
longer confine our efforts to the sav saving
ing saving of the victims of typhoid, we seek
to prohibit or destroy the cause. The
efforts of temperance people to do
away with alcohol as a beverage is
perfectly logical because alcohol is a
poisonous drug. If alcohol were as
harmless as water only lunatics would
advocate its prohibition.
A WITLESS POLICY.
Representative Charles H. Randall
of California, addressing congress in
opposition to the amendment to the
revenue bill placing a higher tax oi
liquors, used this telling illustration:
"The witless heathen who on the
Ganges covered his black limbs with
leeches and ate them when they had
fattened on his blood was wise. He
took back into his body all they had
taken from It. We fasten on the lank
limbs of our body politic the lecherous
traffic, and give fawning thanks when
it returns one drop of poisoned blood
from seven it had sucked from our
wholesome civic veins."
NO RUM-TRAINED SOLDIER.
We are training for a national ef effort,
fort, effort, and we cannot train men for any anything
thing anything worth while on rum. The the theory

elimination of rum. It provides that

HOW BEST TO HELP SOLDIERS.
The bishop of London not long since
visited the headquarters of the Aus Australian
tralian Australian troops to ask the general in
command how he might assist In main maintaining

while in the city. The general replied:
"You can help us most, bishop, by clos closing

supply the plant with any more dis distillate

5 HIS ALMA MATER
By JANE OSBORNE.
13 131 IBS 11 ftSl VSK S9I
When Clay Stimson received the ap appeal
peal appeal from the secretary of his class at
college for contributions to support the
aviation corps that was to be sent to
the front by his alma mater be made
out that check for a thousand dollars,
but before he signed it he thought of
Peggy. Peggy made all the difference
in the world.
It wasn't that Peggy was selfish, but
Peggy was the sort of wife that needed
to be financed generously. It would
have been as alien to Peggy's nature,
thought Clay, to attempt any sort of
economy, even in war time, as it would
be alien to the butterfly's nature to
start in storing away the honeyed
sweetness that it gathers from the
flowers as the thrifty bee does.
It was just when he was turning Into
the long driveway that led to the low low-roofed
roofed low-roofed bungalow nestling among the
trees where Peggy, who, he was sure,
ought to have lived In an Italian villa,
at least, deigned to dwell, greeted him
with even more than usual excitement
at the door. It was Peggy's manner
always to be In a state of .delightful
expectancy and impatience when Clay
returned home every night. Her vivac vivacity
ity vivacity was contagious and Clay would
have been transported from business
or thoughts of the departing stenog stenographer

of the unsigned check for one thousand
dollars. He was rather pensive at din dinner,
ner, dinner, stealing snatches of time between
Peggy's clever little sallies to medi meditate

In order to dispense with the stenog-

to work overtime. It would often mean
that he would have to return to his of office

letters that were not typed In the day daytime.

He would have to tell Peggy simply
that business, detained him.
Peggy talked glibly through dinner,
which she seemed to eat with a relish.
And more than once she stopped to
give directions to the waitress.
"Do yon think the new cook will do T
she asked, knowing well enough that
Clay never had a word to say about the
household management. "Yon know, I
had to dismiss Brady. I think this one
is rather better."
"Yes ; that caviarre was delicious,"
Clay had presence of mind enough to
say; and then, venturing into an un unaccustomed
accustomed unaccustomed field of inquiry, he added :
"I suppose wages are advancing even
with cooks!"
Peggy pouted with a playful note of
annoyance.
"Yes ; I really had to agree to forty
dollars this time. I suppose I shall
have to make an increase if I am to
keep her."
Had Clay found it possible to throw
off his air of preoccupation more easily
he might have remained at home that
first evening. But so eager was he to
begin the work that would make the
sending of a check for a thousand dol dollars
lars dollars possible that he excused himself
after dinner to return to his office. By
eight o'clock he was busy with the
files, bringing his correspondence up
to date, so that the burden of his late
work would not be too heavy. "I shan't

Emergency Home Demonstration
Work
. Mrs. O. W. Weaver of Gainesville,
in charge of this most important
work, has been in town yesterday and
today. Mrs. Weaver paid the Star a
pleasant call today, and requested it
to announce that she would be in
Ocala every Monday and Tuesday for
some months, to give instruction in
this important work. Mrs. J. E. Chace,
with, great public spirit, has given
the use of the old Teapot storeroom,
corner Main street and Fort King,
for this most excellent enterprise.'
The room will be fitted up and classes
will be instructed as long as Marion
county women need the instruction.
Mrs. Weaver will give the work her
personal attention every Monday and
Tuesday. The instruction is free; the
government pays all the expenses.
Mrs. Weaver asks the co-operation
and active assistance of all women's
organizations and all the women and
girls in Ocala.
"The Brand of Satan," a very in interesting
teresting interesting Brady film, will be shown at
the Temple this afternoon and eve evening,
ning, evening, also a Ford weekly.
Mrs. Jessie Rich Arms, superin superintendent
tendent superintendent of all city work in Florida of
the emergency home demonstration
department, arrived this afternoon
for a brief conference, with Mrs.
Moorhead and Mrs. Weaver. She will
be here often to help with emergency
instruction.
in the least mina your going," reggy
reassured him, as he started out. "I'm
dreadfully sleepy, and I'm afraid I
'should have been quite stupid if you
had stayed home."
Three or four nights out of the week
Clay returned to his office, and as often
Peggy, apparently uncomplainingly,
professed perfect willingness to retire
early and forget her loneliness. One
evening that Clay had intended to de devote
vote devote to his correspondence, the vision
of Peggy In a new evening frock
changed his mind. It was one of three
exquisitely simple gowns that experi experience
ence experience had taught Clay to know were the
most expensive kind. But even this
knowledge did not spoil the pleasure it
took In beholding his pretty wife so at attractively
tractively attractively dressed to meet him.
"Do you very much like this dross?"
Peggy asked him after they had :ln :ln-ished
ished :ln-ished dinner. "I can really tell that
yon do just by the way you look at It."
And then, not waiting for Clay's en enthusiastic
thusiastic enthusiastic response, Peggy went on:
"I never could keep a secret, so I Just
have to tell you that I made it." She
paused a moment and watched, and
not finding a reproving frown on Cray's
face she went on : "And I have cooyed
dinner every night for two weeks
ever since the last cook went. Oh, I
never meant to tell you that, too, out
you know I can't keep a secret, and if
you ever found out you'd hate me for
deceiving you. You see, the girls in
my class at college were getting up a
fund for an ambulance, and of course
they looked to me to help a little. But
I knew you couldn't endure having
two-course dinners or seeing me
dressed in a shirtwaist in the evening,
so I decided to go along living just as
we always had, and I'd save the cook's
wages and my dressmaker's bill by do doing
ing doing a little myself. And that caviarre
we had the other night wasn't eaviarre
at all ; it was just mock caviarre made
out of sardines. Nelly's been a trump
and has done a lot to help me with the
cooking. And nights when you do stay
home she does the dishes all alone,
and the nights when you don't, we
really have fun together. So that's my
secret."
Half an hour later Clay and Peggy
in the roadster were speeding toward
Clay's office, and half an hour after
that they were home again. And with
Peggy at his side, Clay was typing cut
the letters of the day in hie library.
