GET BUSY WITH
Omit No Opportunity to Raise Some
i thing to Eat, Says the Food
' Administration
Orlando, March 5. United States
Food Administrator Herbert Hoover
has urged the federal food adminis
trators of the various states, to make
a special appeal to all farmers and
stock growers, poultry growers and
gardeners, to give greater effort than
ever toward producing food supplies.
In calling attention of people of
Florida to this most important work,
as federal food administrator, I
strongly urge compliance with Mr.
Hoover's suggestions. I want to im
press upon all, whether they have a
farm or merely a small garden, that
they should at this time determine to
plant quickly and as extensively as is
possible, confining their crops to the
most essential food products, such as
potatoes, corn, beans and other-staple
crops which can be depended on to
m aintainquality and wholesomeness
for the longest period. of time with
out expensive preservatives.
Growers of cattle and hogs should
go in for raising just as many ani animals
mals animals as they can properly feed and
rear to maturity. No young animals
should be shaughtered. Herds should
be increased. No productive hens
should be killed. Egg production
should be stimulated.
Home gardeners who so nobly re
sponded to the call for "war garden
work" should add if possible to their
efforts of the past year. Every suc successful
cessful successful home garden, means much in
the matter of food supply. Home
gardening should be devoted to rais raising
ing raising not only perishable vegetables,
but especially potatoes and beans
which can be easily and inexpensively
preserved. In every community
where home garden committees hav
been appointed, a new and more
strenuous campaign of education and
effort should be immediately inaugur
ated as the planting season is at hand.
Where this work has not been de
veloped, steps should be taken to in
stitute home garden activity.
Every foot of land converted into
food producing capacity, is that much
aid to the country. Every ounce of
vegetable or animal food produced,
helps to make us independent of
other states, and also helps to lighten
the burdens of transportation. Plant
early, and plant as much as you can.
Do it now or as soon as seasonable
weather conditions prevail.
Raise and consume as much fresh
produce as possible, and preserve
your surplus. Braxtom Beacham,
Federal Food Administrator.

RED CROSS LECTURE
Mr. L. O; Armstrong, recommended
by the American Red Cross' lectured
at the Temple theater last night for
the benefit of the Marion county
chapter, A. R. C.
Mr. Armstrong was introduced to
his audience by Mr. W. T. Gary. Mr.
Armstrong first spoke of few words
in regard to the kaiser's tactics and
told who he is in league with, etc. He
also spoke a short time on Canada
herself and her wonderful patriotism.
His lecture was illustrated by colored
slides of interesting places in France,
the Austrian Alps and Belgium. The
moving pictures shown were mostly
taken in Canada; however, some were
of the same volunteers we saw in
training in Canada, finally perfectly
trained regiments in England. Val Valleys,
leys, Valleys, streams, rivers, lakes, woods
and snow-capped mountains were

colored collection. On the top of one

the lecture and pictures were not
mostly of war. They were of the

offered to give a certain amount

It is a British custom for audiences
to "boo' the speaker, if they disagree
with him. Mr. Bryan, whose peace
proclivities, in the early part of the
war, are well known, has had the ex experience
perience experience of meeting an adverse Can Canadian
adian Canadian audience, in Toronto. As he

was talking on prohibition, that is to
say, that is what he would have talk talked
ed talked about had he been permitted, we
may look for the charge that it was
the whisky men who put the crowd up
to its disorderly actions. But the
facts will probably be disclosed that
the Canadian audience was merely ex

pressing its opinion of one who has

not warmly supported the war
against Germany since the beginning
of hostilities. Miami Herald.

The British, and Canadians have no

reason to love Mr. Bryan. Almost
sixty years ago took place the Indian
mutiny, in which the revolting Sepoys

treated British women and children

like the Germans have been treating
the women and children of Belgium.

The British punished the perpetrators

of the outrages, and have always had
the sympathy of the American people
for doing so. Some years ago,( Mr.

Bryan visited India, and was treated

by the British officials with the cour courtesy
tesy courtesy due a distinguished American.
On his return to America, he wrote a
pamphlet attacking s the rule of the
British in India, and among other
things blamed them for avenging thtj
murder of their women at Cawnpore
and other places. He in fact talked
about the British just like the Ger Germans
mans Germans and Sinn Feiners do, and his
pamphlet was widely circulated in the

United States by the Germans to in-.

cite feeling against England. So far

from being surprised at being hooted
down by a Canadian audience, he wa3

lucky not to be rotten-egged.

It seems tobe the popular belief

that Hungary is peopled by the de

scendants of the Huns, who under

Attila overran Europe in the fifth
century. It is true that the Huns

possessed Hungary, and all in its

vicinity, but so many races came
after them that the breed is probably

now extinct in that country. The
dominant race in Hungary, the
Magyars, came from eastern Asia,
and is ethnologically kin to the people
of Finland and Lapland. When they

reached Europe, the Huns had been

broken and scattered for three centu

ries. The Bulgarians are imore kin to

the ancient Huns than the Hungar Hungarians
ians Hungarians of the present day, tho' probably
all, like the Turks, came from the
vast country now known as Siberia,

Mongolia and Turkestan. The truth

is that the Carpathians rather than
the Urals have always been the
western boundary of Asia, and Ger Germany
many Germany is trying to shove it to the Alps
and the Vosges.

There was a comparatively small

crowd out at the Red Cross lecture

there will be plenty of them left to

Two French Officers in Our City
As the crowd which attended the
Red Cross lecture left the Temple
theater last night, they were quite in interested
terested interested in two young French officers
in the lobby. Upon inquiry they
proved to be Captain Bellot and
Lieut. Leconte, two French soldiers
who are instructors at Camp Wheeler.
These officers have each been wounded
several times in action, and have been
in this country four months.
Mr. and Mrs. G. T. Howard of Ma Macon,
con, Macon, who visited Ocala last winter,
were so charmed with the country
that they brought these two vouncr

officers, their adopted godsons, on a

iuuj Mi. r iui ma, uuring ineir two
weeks furlough. The party toured on
the east coast as far as Miami, and
left their car in Palatka, coming here
yesterday via the Oklawaha river.
The officers were as pleased with
Florida and the river trip as their
generous godparents, and their short
stay in Ocala was made more pleas pleasant
ant pleasant last night at the Temple, when
they met Mr. Armstrong who spoke
in their native tongue.
Mr. and Mrs. Howard introduced

their young friends to several people

in the lobby, whom they had met last
year. All were delighted to make
their acquaintance, and hope Mr. and
Mrs. Howard will not only return to
Ocala in the near future, but that
they will bring more such interesting

that these two are coming to Ocala

Man," will be shown tonight, and is
a new reel. It is a cheer-up story of
kindly sensibilities depicting the dis disposition

distress, and of her native tenderness
of heart the story interest depends,
as the "Cinderella Man" himself is al almost
most almost too good to be true. He is an
exaggerated type of the temperamen temperamental
tal temperamental writer who is so in love with his
work that he scorns wealth. We know
him best when he is so devoted to his

work that he lives in an ideal world
most of the time, often careless of
his material interests because his
habits of thought prevent him from
concentrating on the practical neces necessity
sity necessity of making that work pay; he is
rarely so narrow as to actually scorn
those who are born to riches, but that
is a mere detail. In a garret lives a
poor, starving artist at his work,
when across the roof from the home
of a millionaire comes the million millionaire's
aire's millionaire's daughter with a Christmas
feast. In this she is aided and abetted
by three old cronies of her father, de delightful
lightful delightful old boys, who scamper across
the snow-covered roofs in evening
dress and silk hats in the interest of
true love. This act of impulsive
kindness leads to a romantic attach attachment

and the girl, whom he believes to be

statement, Mrs. Q. 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, for
that was the only ease I 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 Cardui. I took three bottles in all,
and if surely cured me of those awful
headaches. That has been three year3
ago, and I know the cure is permanent,
for I have never had any headache since
taking Cardui.

We are sitting, sadly thinking
Of the days not long ago,
When our loving son, friend and
brother
Was laid in the grave so low.
We miss him; yes, we miss him;
Miss his cheery laugh and voice,
But while we are sadly grieving
Angels in Heaven all rejoice.
He was in the prime of manhood,
He had answered his country's call,
But when God's command is given
We on earth must give up all.
Though a precious one from us is
gone,
A voice we loved in stilled,
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.

"Mother, I am going down to Sarah's
today," was the announcement made
across the breakfast table by Nan
Lenox to her widowed mother at their
home in the city.
"Down," meant a few miles out, In
the country; "Sarah" was a married
sister living on a farm.
"But the summer has gone,? protest protested
ed protested the mother. "The folks are back
from the country long ago."
"All the better. Last summer you
couldn't stir outdoors without bump bumping

And go she did. She found the ripe
apples being gathered; the hired man
getting in the pumpkins; the hazel hazelnuts
nuts hazelnuts ripe; glorious sunrises, and the
days a tonic and not an insect to an annoy,
noy, annoy, and the quails as fat as butter.
When Nan had fed the hens, tamed
the colt, talked with the pigs and
warned the gander that if he bit her
she would go right home when she
had picked and eaten a peck of hazel hazelnuts,
nuts, hazelnuts, made a pumpkin Jack-o'-lantern
and tried ner hardest to milk, the
"hired man" said to her:
"It's a pity you don't know how to
handle a gun."
"Why?"
"Because you could go rabbit hunt hunting."
ing." hunting." "But I never thought of rabbits!"
was the exclamation. "I shall go hunt hunting
ing hunting right away."
"But you can't shoot a gun."
i "But you must teach me. Hurry up !"
The shotgun was smuggled out of
the house and behind the barn, and the
lessons began with:
"Now put the gun up to your face,
like this, and aim at that old stump.
You must, squint along the sights and
have both in line."
"Yes."
"You won't fire now, because your
sister would hear it ; but when you do
want to, Just curl your finger around
this trigger and pull."
"How many cartridges hive I got?"
was asked. 1
"Seven. You can pile the seven
dead rabbits up somewhere and I will
come and get 'em!"
It wasn't at all singular that Burt
Bobbins, of the big fire insurance com company
pany company In the city, should be stopping at
a country Inn a mile away.
Young Mr. Bobbins had been at the
inn for three or four days, when the
landlord said:
"There are more rabbits around this
fall than I have seen for years before.
Did you bring a gun along?"
"I had none to bring."
"Then I can lend you one. It's a
rifle, where you ought to have a shot shotgun;
gun; shotgun; but you can have some fun with
it"
Miss Nan reached the hunting
grounds and looked about her. Not a
bunny.
Mr. Bobbins had been out almost an
hour and had not caught sight of a
rabbit. The red squirrels chattered at
him, and the chipmunks mocked him,
but he let them go. It was when he
was scuffing up the leaves and his mind
far away that a rabbit ran out of a
brush heap and scurried away. In his
confusion, the hunter ran after it, for
a few steps, and as it crossed open
ground he fired.
At the same instant his cap was
dashed from his head. When he had
advanced twenty steps he saw a girl
holding up a dead rabbit by the leg and
heard her exclamation:
"Oh, I've killed him! I've killed
him !"
"I I beg pardon," said Bobbins.
"What? What?"
"I killed that rabbit, if you please."
The young man walked back and re recovered
covered recovered his cap and brought it to her
and said :
"You have a shotgun. You fired
high. Some of your shot knocked the
cap from my head.".
"Sir; you are no gentleman to claim
the rabbit I shot i"
Mr. Bobbins saluted and turned on
his heel and walked away, and after
watching him out of sight the girl
picked up the game and walked to the
house.
- "Jewhittaker, but you have killed
one !" exclaimed the hired man.
"At the first fire, and a long shot,
too. I had quite a time over it, too. A
young man who was hunting claimed
that he shot him."
"What sort of gun did he have?"
"A rifle."
"Say," said the man, after he had
carefully examined the rabbit; "you
never killed this."
"Why didn't IT
"Because it was killed by a bullet
Instead of a shot."
The rabbit was given to the dog and
nothing was said to '.he sister. Nan's
conscience began to trouble her. It
was a settled thing that she had not
killed that rabbit.
In the middle of the next morning
she walked -ta the spot where poor
bunny had met his sad end the day
previous. It was nearly an hour before
she rose up, and then because sh
heard scuffing footsteps.
"I am glad to find you here," said
Mr. Bobbins as Nan faced him. "I
want to beg your pardon. 'On thinking
the matter over, I am sure you killed
that rabbit."
"But I am sure that I didn't."
And then they sat down on a oz and
talked of rabbits, and guos. When Miss l
Nan returned to the house the hired
man called out:
"Well, didn't you get him T
"Perhaps !" was the reply.
