he should have a fair chance to use it.
Mr. Davis is one of the most promi prominent

PLEA FOR THE DAY OF PRAYER
SHALL WE SWAP ?
President Wilson at the request of

It is of course understood that both
observances are to be entirely volun voluntary.
tary. voluntary. There is no legal pressure on
anyone to observe them.
It should also be understood that
people are not to neglect any needful
work in order to pray; neither are
those engaged in work to weaken
themselves by fasting to the point
where they cannot do their full duty.
Faith is never as important as works
if it causes the works to be delayed,
and America can't spare a day, an
hbur, a minute, of anyone's useful
time at present.
People to whom prayer is a real
help can pray between the plow plow-handles
handles plow-handles or at the machine, and those
who have to guide the plow or the
machine had better fortify thenu
selves with three squares, or at least
two and a half.
But while we are not in favor of
anybody stopping work to pray, or
lessening work by fasting, we think
that all should think seriously and
intently oh the great work in which
our nation is engaged, of its possible
peril, and strengthen their souls to
the duties that will carry on the onu
and avoid the other. Never has Am America

faithful performance were so neces necessary

given to enable them to see their
homes and home folk3 once more be before

see France and possibly Germany be
fore they see Ocala again.
The Red Cross ladies are going to

EASY TO EXPLAIN
Friend Benjamin of the Ocala Star,
informs us that Mr. Chas. E. Davis
voted in favor of the bill creating
Bloxham county in the senate in 1915,
and says Mr. Davis cannot expect
much from Marion and Levy in the
primary. The senator did not tell us
of this on his recent visit, thus it is
one more thing we folks would like to

Star has said for him.
The Star has kept tolerably close
tab on Mr. Clark's record since Marion
county has been in the second district.
It has not always agreed with him it
has objected to three or four meas measures
ures measures that he has advocated. But when
it looks back over his performances
for the last half a dozen years it
thinks it would be obliged to say,
even if it was opposing him, that he
has made the second district a very
good representative. He has also es established
tablished established himself in the House as an
useful congressman. He has won from
his colleagues the respect that goes
with experience as well as ability.
Why should we swap him for the in
experienced Mr. Davis? Why send a
boy to mill when we already have a
full-sized man on the job?
Mr. Davis goes up and down tho
district, pointing out the few times
that Mr. Clark has opposed adminis
tration measures. But he never tells
of the scores of times that Mr. Clark
has supported the administration. He
seems trying to make the. people of
this district think that Woodrow Wil
son is an oriental despot and expects
all men to bow to his will. On the
contrary, Mr. Wilson has several
times confessed that he has made
mistakes, and certainly Mr. Clark is
not considered as an anti-administra.
Mr. Davis has been for a number
of years a member of the Florida
legislature, a body that is not dis
tinguished for statesmanship. He has
made a passable record as a legisla
tor. Most of his work has been good,
but he has made more and worsw
mistakes: in proportion in the legisla legislature
ture legislature than Mr, Clark has made in Con
gress. We have no reason to believe
he would make us as good a represen
tative as Mr. Clark is making. He
says he would-make a better, but
what corroborative evidence has he
Whenever" the people of Marion de
cide that Mr. Clark has served his
time in Congress, they ; have at least
one man of congressional size in their
own district. In the meantime, as an
able representative, a good American,
a good democrat and a good, next next-door
door next-door neighbor they had better keep
Mr. Clark on the job.

There are two imperative reasons
why the people of the United States
should faithfully observe tomorrow
according to the proclamation of the
president, as a "day of humiliation,
prayer and fasting." Not simply the
church people is meant, but all the
people, omitting none, since the obli
gation rests upon all. Not only those
who are accustomed regularly to do
their religious duty, but those who,
professing to be Christians, are slack
in the performance of their duty, and
also all those who never attend the
public worship of God, should united unitedly
ly unitedly observe tomorrow, confessing their
sins, and praying God for pardon and
blessing, for guidance to the rulers
and leaders, and steadfastness for the
nation, and for a victory which is apt
ly described in the president's procla proclamation,
mation, proclamation, as giving "a peace in which
men's souls can rest because it is
founded upon mercy, justice and good
The first of these reasons is that it
is the natron's religious duty. Man's
greatest obligation is to love God
whole heartedly. Many have forgotten
God or forsaken Him. They have been
trying to guide the bark of their lives
through the stormy sea without the
compass which faith in God provides.
We must get back to acknowledging:
iroa m an our ways. His promise to
ancient Israel is good for all nations,
and has been abundantly exemplified
in the history of the chosen people,
that if they would obey God they
would prosper, but if they forgot Him
they would have to suffer for their
sin. "The soul that sinneth, it shall
die." The nation that sins and will

and should be the beginning of new
life to multitudes.
The second reason for the proper
observance of the day is that it is a
patriotic duty. Many religious bodies
and individuals have besought the
president for the appointment of this
day. Congress by formal resolution
requested him to do it. He has grant granted
ed granted these requests, and appointed to tomorrow
morrow tomorrow ,and it behooves every loyal
man, woman and child of the nation to
be obedient. Those who are in author authority
ity authority have wrought wonders of prepar preparation
ation preparation for the nation's participation in
the war of freedom. Army and men
and ships and food are all necessary
for the successful prosecution of war,
but for the prosecution of righteous
war something else is needed. There
is a spiritual equipment which is
even' more important than all else.
This was the idea of Davy Crockett
when he said, "Trust in God and keep
your powder dry." It is the assembling
of this spiirtual equipment that the
president has in mind when he calls
the nation to humiliation, prayer and
fasting. This is peculiarly the duty
and privilege of the people at hom6.
When Nebuchadnezzar, the ancient
prototype of Kaiser Wilhelm, invested
Jerusalem, there were two praying
men in the city which baffled by their
prayers the invading conqueror and
sent him back home humbled to his
doom. Tomorrow and all the days fol following
lowing following let us mobilize the praying co cohorts

diers soldiers in France are plying those who
insist upon being our- enemies with
bullets and bombs, let us ply them
through the throne of grace with an
overwhelming attack of confession,
prayer and dedication of our lives to
God. Long ago God promised, "If my
people which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray
and seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from
heaven, and will forgive their sin, and
will heal their land."
Tomorrow is a call for religion and

In view of the controversy as to
whether a schoolboy should enlist or
go on with his studies, the following
from the principal of the Mercers Mercers-burg,
burg, Mercers-burg, Pa., Academy, a school of con considerable
siderable considerable reputation, will be of inter interest:
est: interest: From time to time parents have
written to Mercersburg seeking light
on this very important question. Par Parents,
ents, Parents, boys and instructors all wish to
do their full duty. Quotations from
two letters may be helpful. The first
is frdm a letter written by Professor
Augustus Trowbridge to Dr. John G.
Hibben, president of Princeton Uni University.
versity. University. Professor Trowbridge is a
major in the signal corps, now in
France, and is serving on the staff of
General Pershing. He says:
"There is practically nothing worth
while for men under 21 to do over
here. They can't get commissions
and to my mind should not enlist as
privates, for they form the material
from which the officers must come a
year or two hence, if things keep up
that long. I have tried to persuade all
of the ambulance boys to come home
and finish out as much as they can of
their education, and not rush off to
enlist in the French army or either
the French or American flying corps.
When you see war close to it, as I
have this past month, you feel it is
not a case of mere man power, or
rather it is man power and not boy
power that is wanted. These young
boys will be worth a lot in a couple
of years and are not worth much now;
they are a bit too intelligent to make
good common soldiers without much
hope of promotion, and they are not
old enough to be officers yet. The
best material we have is the college
man with four or five years' exper experience
ience experience of handling men, on top of his
college training. Before the war is
over this type of men should come up
well toward the top."
Early in November, Mrs. Irvine
wrote a personal letter to President
Woodrow Wilson asking him his
opinion concerning the duties of head
master an dinstructors in a school of
Mercersburg's type. President Wilson
"I have no hesitation in saying Dr.
Irvine has made the right decision. It
is clearly his duty to keep the school
going at its highest capacity if he
can, and I think that it is the duty of
the teachers associated with him to
stick to their tasks unless they are
manifestly indispensable to the direct
work of the war itself. I think it
would be a great detriment to the
country to have our. higher schools
and the colleges interrupted and un unnecessarily
necessarily unnecessarily depleted, particularly at
this time. May I not congratulate you
both on the decision you have made
and on the work you are doing?"
I hope that these quotations will be
helpful to parents of Mercersburg
boys who are trying to reach the right
conclusion on this important question.

DO YOU WANT TO
SELL YOUR FARM ?
WTe have long believed that Ocala and Marion County were worthy
of a REAL Real Estate Agency, one where the owner could be sure
that his holding was going to be offered to the prospective purchaser
at just the price made by him and this price including a commission
to the broker and where the contemplating buyer could feel sure that
if the owner was offering a bargain that the broker had not got from
him a net price and then added what would equal several commissions
to that figure.
Both owners and intending purchasers and the reputation of any,
town and county suffer from that bad practice.
We do not feel that we are more moral than most people but we
do believe that it is GOOD BUSINESS POLICY to have one method
of doing business and then sticking to it.
We have been working on Marion County land titles for the past
six years and have made many friends because they got what they
paid for and what we did for them was not gossiped to Tom, Dick and
Harry. In other words we have inspired confidence.
We are now going to add to our title work a real estate depart department
ment department and if you have a parcel of land or an improved farm and would
like to sell it we are going to be the medium thru which it can be done.
If you will list your land with us (we do not want an exclusive listing)
and will do it in the way we are going to have it done and will agree
to pay us an understood commission if we sell it, we can do business
To increase our facilities for selling we have made a contract
with the E. A. STROUT FARM AGENCY, Inc., to represent them in
Marion County. Just a word about who they are. They are the largest
agency, handling farm lands, in the World. That is saying a good

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 essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
