In the last issue of the Saturday
Evening Post, under the title of "The
Beggar's Purse," is an article that all
Americans should read. It tells o
the experiences of a big city business
man, who was induced by an agent
for the sale of war savings stamps
to cut off all his unnecessary ex
penses during one of his usual eve
ning rounds. To further his under
standing, he was given a magic purse.

on' the point of making an useless ex
penditure. The business man follow followed

his office in the afternoon to return

carrying his suitcase to the tram in
stead of paying a porter for the serv
ice, and keeping this up until the

found he had saved $8.28 enough to
buy two war savings stamps. Now,
it would be a very extragant busi

of them la visa enough to buy a thrif;

town the .bigger the expense, the na

spenders, and up to the present we
have rather enjoyed the reputation
of being such. We not only throw
away money but we make other
hardworking people throw it away
and we support a horde of semi-idlers
in entirely unnecessary callings. We
pay able-bodied men to polish our
shoes brush our coats and even help
us put them on instead of telling
them to get to hell away from us and
go to work in the fields and shops
We spend money for showy service

This reminds us that many people
in Ocala are wondering how the mov
ing up business will affect them when
the clocks are set up an hour next
Monday morning. Will they get up
and go to work by the fake time of
the clocks, or will they simply set the
clocks ahead and rise and begin work
at the usual time ? The present time,
about half an hour behind the sun,
suits Ocala very well, and half am
hour ahead of the sun is not going to
suit many at all. Out in the country,
it will make no difference, the people
getting up and going to work by the
sun and not by the' clock. We suppose
the matter will" depend principally on.
the way the trains are run. If the
trains come in at the same time by
he clock, or. really an hour sooner,
business in Ocala will move up to
keep pace with them, but if the time
of arrival and departure of trains
here is actually the same as now, tho
set back an hour by the clocks, busi business
ness business openings and closings may stay
as they are. It would suit Ocala ad
mirably to have the trains from both
north and south come in an hour
sooner than they do now, but the
Star doubts that such a change can
be made, as the time of trains that
pass thru our ,town depends on their
connections, and it would be a very
arge undertaking to move up the
ime of trams thruout .the country an

have to wait and see. The truth is, the"

joys one of the lowest rates in the
country a rate in which the city not

increased price of fuel and other

The Star "regrets to report" that
one of our citizens, who has already4
been warned by federal officers, has
again given vent to his spleen.
He is reported, on the best of evi evidence,
dence, evidence, to have gloated aloud on the
reported German successes, and to
have said that the American army in
France was no better than a gang of
It is hard to say what to do with
this man. If there were a hundred
or so like him' in Ocala there would
ere now have been a battle in oui
streets. But he is only one, he has a
large family, and his neighbors hate
to xand him over to the authorities.
Right now; tho, with many Ocala
boys in France,, with some probablj
in the great battle raging, and the
probable announcement in a few
days that one or more of them has
been killed or wounded, the people
are not in any humor to hear them
referred to as "tramps."
We, hope this man will suddenly and
immediately realize that he had best
keep his mouth shut. If he doesn't,
the inside of the county jail will be
the only safe place for him.
