THE SCOUT HIKE
About 25 boys, led by Scout Mas Master

Wednesday morning, leaving Ocala at
3:30 and arriving at their destination
at 7:30. They walked to Belleview
and rode the rest of the way.

of living, set out to find some better
means of shelter. Ernest Beaton
discovered a usable bath house and
here they put up. They christened it
the "Eat More and Sleep Less" hotel,

would hike out pp to the stnre and

Colonel Roosevelt, in his last crit

far. No doubt that the influence of
Hearst's papers is pernicious. But
Hearst's papers have taken good care

that the administration has the moral

at rail-splittings in North Georgia. On
these occasions, the real ; work of
splitting the rails was done by husky
axmen, but there were generally pres present

to do much, tho they had been good
workers in their younger days. In
order to save the feelings of these old
boys, they were always assigned the
job to "grunt and chop splinters"
that is, when an able-bodied worker
would hit a wedge with a maul one
of. the old men would give a grunt,
and when a splinter would develop in
a crack in a log, slightly hindering its
splitting, an old man would cut said
splinter with his ax. The work of
renewing service on the Oklawaha
Valley was done by Mr. Cummingss,
who leased the road and some others,
entirely unconnected with the railroad
commission. ', AH the commission did

PICNIC AT FELLOWSHIP

We had been hearing and reading
so much about the horrible condition
or the Blitchton road that we started
from home Friday somewhat nervous,
as -our destination was Fellowship,
some dozen miles out on the said
Blitchton road. Now, what the road
is like between that place and Blitch Blitchton
ton Blitchton we have no way of knowing, but
certainly the part that we traveled
over was a credit to any county with
no better facilities than we have for
building good roads; in fact, the
greater part of the road was better
to drive over than the majority of our
city streets, and much easier on rub rubber
ber rubber tires.
Arriving at our destination we were
no way lonesome as there were hun hundreds
dreds hundreds of visitors on the ground and
every corner of the county was rep represented.
resented. represented. A very, neat platform had
been erected for the use of the speak speakers,
ers, speakers, it being entirely covered with
palmetto leaves, giving it a very pic
turesque appearance, and as its roof
was a giant oak the sun's rays were
not allowed to disturb the speakers ov
make them nervous. There was some
thirty or more young girls in full Red
Cross regalia. Some of these were
quite small and all were very pretty.
They were under the escort of a com
pany of Boy Scouts, and were very
busy selling Red Cross buttons, etc.,
and between the orations of the
various candidates they were arrang arranged
ed arranged in pretty tableaux in front of the
stand and sang patriotic songs
Mr. H. L. Shearer was master of
ceremonies and filled that position in
a dignified and impartial manner. The
first speaker called on was Mr. J. T.
Hutchins of Romeo, candidate for re reelection
election reelection to the office of commissioriei
for the second district, and while he
claimed the office on the grounds of
two years' experience in it and his
efforts to do the square thing by all
parts of the district, he took excep exceptions
tions exceptions to a card gotten out by his op opponent,
ponent, opponent, which intimated that some
candidates or politicians were not big
enough to raise, an issue, but only big
enough to raise a row, and that the
said opponent could not get the job
of water boy if he asked it of the peo people
ple people of Dunnellon.
Mr. B. J. Benson of Dunnellon, the
other candidate for .the office of com
missioner from the second district,
was the next speaker. He paid his
respects to Mr. Hutchins, his oppon opponent,
ent, opponent, saying there was not money
enough in the county funds to carry
out all the promises that gentleman
had made, so he would make no
promises, but told of the difference
between the Dunnellon of old times
and that of today, and that a large
share of the credit for the same was
due .to the efforts of d man by the
name of Benson, and the argument
between the two gentlemen seemed to
resolve itself into a matter of size.
Mr. W J. Folks of Juliette, always
spoken of as "Uncle Billy" Folks,
candidate for a seat in the legislature,
was the next speaker and with his

Light was not present as he wantea
some light on several topics He said
he liked to meet people but just now
he felt that he was in danger of hav having
ing having a Raysor scratch his back, and
while in these days of electricity it
was a very simple matter to push a
button to turn on a light and if you
didn't want that light you just pushed
another button and it was done and
out, but the only safe place for a
razor was on a shelf. He then told
of the kind words said of himself by
his opponent, Ben Raysor, at their
first meeting and how he advised all
present to give Uncle Billy the first
choice vote and himself the second
choice, but five days later at Romeo
he said that Uncle Billy was too old
and too good to go to the legislature,
and that the crowd there 'would con contaminate
taminate contaminate him. This he called being
scratched on the back with a Raysor,
but he claimed that he wanted to go
there just to leaven up the lump.
When asked his stand on the no no-fence
fence no-fence law, he said that as far as he
could see a no-fence law meant a
double fence. Asked about prohibition,
he said he would consider it the great greatest
est greatest honor to vote to ratify the consti constitutional
tutional constitutional prohibition -amendment, and
if elected would try to have a bill
passed limiting the session to thirty
days, and that the salaries and ex expenses
penses expenses of the other forty days "be
used to buy Liberty Bonds.
Ben Raysor said he was up against
a hard proposition as he had to run
against two good men. He said that
the no-fence law was not an issue,
that someone had said there were only
two men in the county who wanted it,
and one of these men had died the
previous night and Galloway had
taken the other to Chattahoochee.
That a law good in one community
might be disastrous in another, but
he told how it worked in Mcintosh
and how it had enhanced the value of
farm land and the amount of monej
deposited in the Mcintosh bank, but
while the fence law would ultimately
settle itself, there should be a law
prohibiting hogs running at large on
account of carrying the germs of hog
cholera, and he again asked that
Uncle Billy's friends would make him
(Raysor) second choice.
The next candidate was Mr. N. A.
Fort, who gave substantially the
same speech as at Fairfield, a rather
full report of which was in the Star
of Friday last.
Mr. S. J. McCully thought that Fort
ought to stay in the county commis commissioners'
sioners' commissioners' office,, not in the legislature.
He couldn't see how the re-districting

EARNS 14 CENTS A DAY;
HAS ME AND BABY
And Yet This True Story Has a
Happy Ending.
Even a Frenchman sometimes loses,
for awhile at least, his "unfailing
sense of humor.
Take, for instance, the case of a
man from Lille, a soldier, Waeltele by
name and only twenty-three. He had
done pretty well, for the your-gster had
already his own printing, shop in that
northern French town, which Is still in inside
side inside the German lines. In the trenches
Waeltele developed tuberculosis, and
be was sent to a hospital at Grenoble.
There he was considered Incurable,
and after the usual three months of
treatment he was granted his 14 ceyts
a day pension. Said his fatherly army
doctor, "My son, you can perliaps cure
yourself If you will live in the moun mountains,
tains, mountains, if you will eat-plenty of nour nourishing
ishing nourishing food and, above ail, if you don't
worry."
Waeltele should have smiled, but he
didn't. He was thinking of his baby
and his wife and his 14 cents. "Don't
worry!" The humor of It entirely es escaped
caped escaped him.
Then the Red Cross stepped In. He
tva found by an American woman
with some American Red Cross money
for just such cases, and within a few
hours he no longer had need to worry.
He vvas sent to the mountains at La La-mure,
mure, La-mure, in the French Alps, happy in
the knowledge that his family was be being
ing being cared for by these amazingly kind
Americans.
And now the army doctor's words
are coming true. Waeltele's lung is
healing fast, and he Is dreaming of
another printing shop and of living
again some day with that little family.
There have been over 400,000 new
cases of tuberculosis in France since
the war started, and to care for these
cases and check the White Plague's
spread is merely one of the big Jobs
the American Red Cross has set out to
accomplish.

Under the banner of "Home Serv Service"

Home Service True Service.
Home service means keeping the sol soldier's
dier's soldier's children- well and In school. It
means tiding the family over financial
troubles, arranging the household
budget, meeting insurance premiums,
adjusting a mortgage, bringing med medical
ical medical aid and legal advice to bear at the
right moment. In short "Home Serv Service"
ice" Service" is true service, In that It provides
the warm handclasp of friendship
rather than the humiliation of charity.
It calls for sympathetic understanding
and intelligent consideration of the
most vital needs of the soldier's family.
The Red Cross is pledged to "Home
Service" wherever needed in the Unit United
ed United States. In each chapter of the Red
Cross there will be a home service
section, under competent hands, whose
mission will be to protect the welfare
of the soldiers' and sailors' homes and
to safeguard the normal development
of their families In employment and In
Ideals of self help and self reliance.

HUSBAND GONE SONS GONE

A Fact Story Telling Just What the Red Cross
Did for Mme. Pellier.
By an Eye Witness
MAUDE RADFORD WARREN

This Is the picture I saw last Janu January
ary January in France, and you have merci mercifully
fully mercifully changed itl Color enough there
was above, the eternal blue; in the
background, fields of living green,
which the German shells could not
prevent from creeping back; in the
middle foreground, a long village
street so battered and burEed that
it was merely a canyon of cream-colored
ruins. In front of one little
broken house were four figures in
black an old woman, poking among
the fallen stores in a vain search for
somethinjc that could be used; a
younger woman, seated on what had
once been a doorstep, with her face
hidden in her arms; and a little boy
and girl, who stared, half frightened,
half curious, at the desolation about
them. The little boy held in his thin
hand a Red Cross flag. All four were
pale and gaunt ; the faces and bodies
of the children showed none of the
round curves that make the beauty of
a child.
This is their history: When the
war broke out, Mme. Pellier, her
mother and her four younger children
were visiting her husband's mother in
the north of France, ner husband
and two elder sons were at home In
Lorraine taking care of the summer
crops. Then the war! The mother
In-law of Mme. Pellier was III and
could not be left. Her old mother
was afraid to travel to Lorraine with
the full care of the four children. Be Before

Germans Invaded. Bad news is"allov is"allov-ed

so as the months passed Mme. Pellier
learned that her village home had been

two sons had been killed. Except for

operates In northern France also, she
and her little ones would have starved

began, and hopes for France grew
high. But as the French soldiers ad advanced

Germans to let her go away with her
children even into Germany. This
was refused. She tried to seek safety

killed two of her children.
Found Her Home Gone.

She found nothing except her bare

You changed that picture, you Amer Americans,

who can never lose through war five
out of the seven dearest to you. It
was not your husband and children

home that had vanished. Not yours,
but only the grace of accident saved

DOING YOUR BIT
WITH YOUR
TWO-BITS
Make that "slacker" quarter help you, and
help Uncle Sam Win the war.
How? Simple! Use it to buy Thrift Stamps.
When you have 16 Stamps, take them to
the Post Office, pay a few cents more, and
get a War Savings Stamp.
On January 1st, 1923, the United States
Government will give you $5 for your W. S. S.
You can cash your W. S. S. before 1923 and
get interest, if you will give ten days notice.
