PETER PAN PANNED OUT
It's the opinion of at least a major
ity of those who saw Peter Pan at the
Temple Monday night that it had the
best finish on it of any amateur min
strel ever given here the result of an
unusually efficient instructor combined
with a high grade of local talent.
The Temple was crowded upstairs
and down, and we must say that until
the usual standard time is resumed
next fall the theater had better begin
its performances at 9 o'clock. It was
about 8:50 when the curtain went up,
and it is just as well, for people were
coming in all that time and would
have disturbed the performance
greatly had the entertainment begun
on time. 1
When the curtain rose, it revealed
semi-circle of Ocala goodlooks
some three dozen girls and young la
dies, selected for their talent, which
always goes with charm in this town.
The semi-circle was flanked by the
Sally Snowball family six old-time

Mrs. Winston), Trilbyana Johnsing
(Miss Katherine Pyles), Glorianna
Dockstader (Mrs. Hocker), Lily Belle
White (Miss Doris Murry), Mrs. E.
A. Osborne and Miss Miriam Connor,
who thought they were disguised
enough without wearing stage names.
Their make-up was almost perfect
the only thing lacking wras cut off by
the war; that is, a little coal dust to
powder their noses. Miss Rogers, the
instructor, in the center of the semi
circle, peeped from under a coal-scut-
le bonnet at the audience as she call
ed the numbers.
This part of. the performance was

down the house with, that "Tall, Slim,

Ax, witchingly attired as "Marie
Doro," and hugging a Teddybear,
which at once became the envy of ev
ery boy (old and young) in the house.
Miss Adela's love song was encored,
and she was handed. a big bouquet of
Easter lilies, which seemed to put the
teddybear's nose out of joint. Then
came Trilbyana Johnsing with that
riotously funny song, "Down in Mon-
keyville," which was heartily encored.
Miss Ellen Stripling as "Billy Burke

Miss Rogers, a fine actor, singer and
monologist herself. During the act
Mrs. Mclver was in evidence, handing
out cupfulls of genuine not stage
punch to the performers. All the
young ladies 'came in on the choruses
and parts of the songs. And the
mockingbirds were not in it when they
whistled an accompaniment to a verse
of Mrs. Hampton's song. It's impos
sible to smile and whistle at the same
time, tho', as more than one pair of
ruby lips found out, all of a sudden.

the plant with doing work for the

O ye fathers of our city, ye grave men
who rule this town,
We, the people pray your pity, hear
our plea and gain renown,
Rise in strength, ye "Reverend Sen Seniors,"
iors," Seniors," let your duty bring to pass
Change, and you shall have our
praises; give us gas, oh give us
.. gas. .'
We are paying ou(t our dollars to a
thing without a soul,
Called a legal corporation, and they
have us in a hole.
We're not getting what we pay for,
we complain, but ah, alas,
Our complaints amount to nothing;
give us gas, oh, give us gas.
They divide things fifty-fifty, half
poor gas and half bad smell,
And the odors in our kitchens make
us think of that called well
Make us think of things not pious,
make us storm and rage alas,
All our ragings come to nothing;
give us gas, oh, give us gas.
We've endured the fumes of sulphur,
we have sneezed and choked and
Many months and months so' weary.
Haven't we had quite enough?
Rise and smite this corporation, not
with jawbone of an ass,
Make them give' us what we pay for:
give us gas,' oh, give us gas.
Not the gas of idle talking, long dis discussion
cussion discussion bringing naught,
But a gas of good combustion, gas to
get our dinners hot,
Gas that measures up to standard,
. freed from sulphur, that will pass
Any reasonable inspection; give us
gas, just decent gas.
Are you sleeping onV your duty, ox
does fear both great and, strong
Make you let this corporation rob and
cheat us all so long?
Then resign and let some others take
; your place and bring to pass
Rightful service to us people, that will

N CITY and country more war gardens are needed this year
than ever before. Patriotism prompted 2,000,000 Americans
to plant gardens last year, according to estimates of the

facilities of the nation will be strained this year hauling muni munitions
tions munitions of war and foods for the Allies. The surplus food cre created

the nation will eat less of the goods we must export wheat,

garden is helping win the war. Leaflets of Instruction in

FROM THE DAUGHTER
OF A FARMER
The following is worth the consid consideration
eration consideration of some of our town folks:
Editor Star: I clipped this piece
out of the Atlanta Constitution. Will
you please print it in the Star? It
gives my views exactly. If the ladies
in town would do more of their own
work we could have more' help on the
farm. With most of our boys gone
and most of the negroes working in
town it makes it hard for the farmer's
wife and daughter.
A Farmer's Daughter.
York, Fla., April 28.
A Farmer's Wife Speaks Her Mind
Mr. Editor: If you will allow me
space I will drop in a few words on
how we Americans can win the war.
We want to win and must win, but
it can't all be done by economy of the
farmers and farmers' wives. There
has been a lot of talking, speaking
and writing on the subject of econo economy,
my, economy, all of which has been addressed
to the wives of farmers. There are not
many farmers' wives, who have not
done their part and have been all the
It is springtime and there is a great
demand for farm hands, and we, the
farmers' wives, can take our babies
to the field and set them down under
a bush in a cracker box and hoe back
and forth while two or three little
ones play around the box. This is
often seen on the farm.
. And there is another scene, often
witnessed in the cities, and that is a
nurse in the back yard with the chil children
dren children while the mothers are at card
parties and receptions, or some other
social function. I do not know any anything
thing anything about those societies, but I read
about them. They do a lot to win the
war, they say; but they could do more;
they could send their colored nurses
out in the country and help us farm farmers'
ers' farmers' wives work on the farms, and at attend
tend attend to their own children like I have
Sto do. They could do their own cook
ing and send their cooks to the farms
where they are much needed to raise
foodstuffs. They could clean their owi
houses, wash their, own clothes and
the washerwoman "and the' scrubwom scrubwom-an
an scrubwom-an could be used on the farms. Try
this for three months. There are thou thousands
sands thousands of men and women who are do doing
ing doing nothing but having a good time
just like there was no war.
It makes me tired to read a piece
of .advice to farmers' wives. After we
have finished our breakfast, cleaned
up our house, milked and churned, fed
our chickens and pigs, taken our box
and babies to the field, hoed until we
think, it is 11 o'clock, take up our load
and go back to the house to hurry
dinner by the time the plow hands get
in. Wash days come when it is too wet
to work, and ironing Saturday after
noon. And I think after we have gone
through all this day after day we
might have meat or biscuit, if we
raise it. And if any one has to do
without it let it be the ones that do
not work. I am not trying to run the
government's business, but I say if all
the nurses, maids, butlers, cooks,
chauffeurs and corner loafers were
sent to the farms and the soldiers to
the front, we could win the war and
have plenty to eat at home and to feed
our soldiers. But the farmers cannot
faed themselves and soldiers and all
these idlers. Let's everybody work.
Let's all do something to win the war
and save our country.

DARKENS GRAY HAIR
Grandmother's Eecipe to
Restore Color, Gloss
- Almost everyone knows tbat Sage Tea
and Sulphur, properly compounded,
brings back the natural color and lustre
to the hair when faded, streaked or
gray. Years ago the only -way to get thU
mixture was to make it at home, which
is musay and troublesome. Nowadays, by
asking at any drug store for "Wyeth'a
Sage and Sulphur Compound," you will
get a large bottle of this famous old:
recipe, improred by the addition of other
ingredients, for about 50 cents.
Don't stay gray! Try it! No one
can possibly tell that you darkened your
hair, as it does it so naturally and
evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft
brush with it and draw thia through
your hair, taking one small strand at a
time; by morning the pray hair dis disappears,

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essentia to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And. if you invest the money you save
in War Saving Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.
