For the Present, at Least, Has

Mr. Amos wouldn't talk for publica publication,

deal of diplomacy on both sides.
Almost everybody in the city has
sympathized with the striking girls,
and the sympathy grew stronger as
time went on.
Nearly all the girls have declared
their appreciation of Miss Davis and
Miss Partridge, and the Star and all
the rest of the town hopes they will
live up to their declaration. They have
a plenty of friends in the city, who
will gladly do all they can to help
them grow up into happy and useful
womanhood. If they stay by their
teachers and show a disposition to
improve, Ocala and all the state will
be gratified. If, on the contrary, they
run away on slight provocation, or
from mere willfulness, their Would-be
friends will have -to judge them ac accordingly.

people of the city will not stand for
their being treated with brutality,
and if they hear of anything of the
sort they will find a way to interfere
whether the state officials approve of
it or not. On account of the school
being a new institution, they have
been more inclined to keep hands off
than they will be in, future. If the
governor and board of institutions
don't .want the people to take an in-
teerst in the school, they should re remove

The Star hopes our people will be

The general conference of the Meth

are only entitled to eight delegates
from ministers and four laymen. J.
P. Phillips of Ocala is one of the four
lay delegates and has the distinction
of being elected the first lay delegate
and also of having received more
votes than any other delegate at the
late annual conference at Miami,
Following former precedent, this
makes him chairman of the lay dele delegation

connection with the board of control.
Another man in his position might.
What he does well, another man
might do ill. The point we wish to
make is that it is bad policy and not
good for the public interest for a man
to hold a public office, given him for

At the meeting of the bankers of
the state in Tampa Saturday, Mr. J.
A. Griffin, formerly of Marion coun
ty, now one of the leading bankers of
the gulf city, was elected president of
the association. Mr. G. G. Ware, of
Leesburg was elected first vice presi
dent and Mr. G. W. Neville of Dun
nellon the fifth. The bankers and
other prominent men to the number
of 200 were entertained at a great
banquet at the Hillsborough Satur
day night. Mr. J. M. Thomas of the
Munroe & Chambliss Bank represent
ed Ocala at the meeting.
In his great speech at Baltimore
Saturday night, President Wilson
again said the right thing at the
right time. America must meet force
with force. America has the force of
right and also the force of might.
America alone can defeat Germany if
our people back their president's
words up with the grim determination
that the world has a right to expect
from the nation. And we believe
America will do that very thing. Day
by day, as the war lengthens, the
strength of this mighty country, and
the will to use it becomes more fully
aroused.
Miss Isabelle Mays, assistant prin
cipal of the Ocala high school, in
forms the Star that she expects to go
to France this summer, to aid in war
work, probably to .help in the can
teens. Miss Mays is one of Florida's
best teachers and best women. If she
goes to France, she will do nobly, but
we are not certain but that she is
more needed at home. The war has
greatly reduced the number of school
"1 .a
teacners, out' it is more tnan ever
necessary that the schools be kept up.
The government is specially desirous
that as many young men as possible
be graduated from the high schools,
for the longer the war lasts the more
they will be needed.

that are not able to do so and would

have to stop school otherwise. The

ant dreams at bedtime with no hard

Ino problems to solve for forming

I be a teacher. How can we say they
are not overworked nor underpaid?
As for the unnecessary studies, I
say that it takes it all to be educat
ed. All these studies broaden the
mind. That is what we go to school
for. Does the Star, think that a man
ought not to know anything but his
own work? Agriculture is one of the
essentials of the present day rural
schools. Thirty-three and a third per
cent of our English language is de
rived from Latin. Then how can we
learn the English properly without
Latin ? Algebra does more to culti
vate the reasoning ability than any of
the lower studies. Of course, all
these help us to solve the problems of
life, even t though we may, never need
them after they have been learned
Tho we forget them, yet the improved

To "feel a little tune in the heart1

anything about music? The average
I child looks UDon scales as a course.
UDon nractice as a detested task and
music as oniy a distasteful duty. The
first thine to make the -children of
America musical is to awaken a love
and a vital interest in music as
great, art. Once you have proved
that music is in him and that he can
make it vou have chaneed his menta!

Every child cannot be turned out a
skillful musician, but he can be train
ed to annreciate. understand and fee

melodies and by this a world of hap
1 . x
i it is a fact nrnven hevonrt con
trovers v that the introduction o
music in the public schools has done
more to uplift, refine and create
morale than any other one study.
The same idea is beiner carried into
the training camDS of our armv,
I where courses are arranged for the
men to sing, because it inspires, en
I courages and heartens them.
1 we Deneve that the taxpayers o:

of earth that we can take with us to
heaven, so why not start this little
bit of heaven here ?
The singing in our Sunday schools
and churches means much to the in
terest and inspiration of the services.
and better singing because the young
people are taught to sing in the
public schools will add to the interes
and inspiration and hold our boys and
girls to the church, that bulwark of a
nation's safety.
Florida is far behind other states
in awakening to the importance o
this course of study in the publi
schools. A fact which is a reflection
upon their intelligence and their ideas
of the. best culture.
Taxpayers willingly put their mon
ey into caring for the pigs, in arrest
ing the ravages of the boll weevil
and the blight that threatens their
trees; all this is good, but we enter a
plea for children that they may not
be rated of lesser value than pigs and
cotton and trees. We can give testi testimony
mony testimony as to what music means to our
own personal life because we know
and we sometimes suspect that some
of the dear people who oppose the
teaching of music in the public
schools do not know of the wonder wonderful
ful wonderful happiness and uplift they are
shutitng from the lives of their chil children
dren children by their opposition.
We are thoroughly democratic and
we protest with all our power against
the setting aside the best in educa education

It means just a few cents increase

Ocala people were, greatly shocked
late yesterday to learn to Mr. J.
'Lefferts Conard had come to a sudden
death in the waters of Silver Springs.
Mr. Conard can't be said to have
drowned. His death seems to havt
been the result of Tieart failure. He
and Mr. J. W. Chamberlain went to
the springs about 3:30 and went in
bathing. Finding the water colder
than they expected, they started to
come out. Mr. Chamberlain was lead leading,

he turned just in time to see Mr. Con Conard

to himself, he went back and brought
his friend out. Mr. Conard, however,
was unconscious and all attempts to
revive him failed. v
Mr. Conard was from Trenton, N.

was president of the Florida Utilities
Company, which controls the Ocala
gas plant. He has been here a good
deal of the time for the past year and
made many friends in our city. He

WHAT THUMBS ARE WORTH
Digit Is Estimated to Represent Fully
One-Third of the Total Value
of the Hand.
One has only to grasp a pen or a
tool of some sort to realize that the
different fingers are far from having
the same value in regard to their use usefulness
fulness usefulness in performing work. The most
important, states writer, is the
thumb, for without it seizing or hold holding
ing holding would be very Imperfect. The
hand is no longer pincers, but merely
a claw, when deprived of the thumb.
It may be estimated that the thumb
represents fully a third of the total
value of the hand. The total loss of
the thumb is estimated by competent
authorities as 15 to 85 per cent for the
right and 10 to 15 per cent for the left
hand,, except for workers In art, when
40 to 50 for the right and 25 to 40
per cent for the left hand comes near nearer
er nearer the value.
The total loss of the index finger
causes an incapacity estimated at from
10 to 25 per cent for the right hand
and 10 to 15 per cent for the left.
The middle finger Is less Important
than the index. The ring finger is
least important, and the little finger
may be compared to its neighbor, e&
!cept In the professions in which It
serves as a point of support for the
hand.

attribute for centuries. It had special
significance as the cause of the death
of Balder, the Norse, Apollo, who was
killed by an arrow made from its
branches.
Subsequently Balder was restored to
life, the mistletoe tree was placed un under

Churches In Queer Places.
People at Tunbrldge WellsEngland,
rarely say that it is Impossible to be
in two places at one time, because if
they enter the beautiful old chapel of
ease In their town they can stand In
two "counties and three parishes. This
chapel stands partly in Kent and part partly
ly partly in Sussex. This is how the prob problem
lem problem Is worked out, When the clergy clergyman
man clergyman leaves the vestry he comes out
of the parish of Frant, in Sussex. If
he is going to officiate at the altar he
walks Into the. parish of Tunbrldge, In
Kent. If, on the other hand, he is go going
ing going to preach the sermon, he walks
from the parish of Frant to the parish
of Speldhurst on the way to the pulpit.
In half a minute he can enter the two
counties and the three parishes named.

generally believed to have been the
spot where Noah left the ark. Not
until 182D did a mountain climber suc succeed

tor Doctor Parrot, an Englishman, achieved
that distinction. For centuries the
mountain had defied the. efforts of
mountain climbers, and the Christian

an article of faith, that Jehovah had
made the peak his earthly home, and
that no human could possibly reaeh the
top and escape divine vengeance. When
Doctor Parrot declared that he had ac accomplished

Some of them are so faded that they
