administration should know that the
question of purchasing power from
the Florida Power Company has been
before the people of Ocala for some
years; that the matter was decided in
the negative when the people in 1914
voted bonds in the amount of $175,000
to build a combined electric light and
water plant; that the Florida Power
Company fought the validity of the
bond issue through the supreme court
of the state, causing a delay in placing
the contract which was very costly to
the city, and that there grew out of
the controversy much factionalism
and feeling.
That the people of Ocala had hoped
that this question was settled for all
time, and they fear that in the event
it becomes necessary to have this
power line come into the city, that
the question will never again be out
of city politics.

Up to June 1st, which commences
the preparation for the June drive to

Hillsborough county is still leading
in the amount of total sales through

take several years for Florida to ab absorb

the banks in Florida are receiving

Another landmark will shift its
moorings on August 1, when Gerig's
drugstore will remove from its pres

to the store now occupied by Mr. G.
A. Nash. Gerig's drugstore is the
oldest in town and the longest under
one management. It wrs established
as the Postoffice Drugstore in 1892,
and carried that name until the post
office was removed in 1909. The pres
ent proprietor and Mr. F. C. Alworth
took charge of it in 1895, and became
sole proprietor a few years later. He
has always conducted a successful
and popular business, which will

what to make of going by this old,
established drugstore and not finding
it there, but the truth is that since the
A. C. L. passenger station was aban abandoned

proportion of the public doesn't pass
that way any more, and this is one of
the reasons for Mr. Gerig's removal.

that store,, from John Sylvester, one

that it will give us a little more ex exercise.

all his old-time prosperity and then
some in his new location.
A member of the council, the other
day, told the Star that he thought the
council would try and get along with without
out without a city manager, and thereby save
the expense of his salary. This sounds
good, but we are afraid such a policy
will cost more than it comes to. In
the first place, we are informed, by a
prominent lawyer, well acquainted
with the charter, that as said charter
is the governing instrument of the
city, and as it demands a manager,
there may be some difficulty in col collecting
lecting collecting taxes, as well as performing
other official acts, without a manager.
Another thing is, that while the city
clerk, superintendent of light and wa water

plumbing inspector, are all of the best
men in their departments that can be

That German Spies Can Be Classed

It Is not dishonorable to be a spy,
says the Santa Fe New Mexican. One
of the Americans we most .revere,
whose only regret was that he had but
one life to give to his country, Was
shot as a spy. The spy must be most
daring and courageous, must face ex extraordinary
traordinary extraordinary perils, must have remark remarkable
able remarkable nerve and resourcefulness.
That, at least, is the conception of
the spy which we had until the Ger German
man German spy got into the game and made
the word synonymous with all that Is
most execrable in treachery and cun cunning,
ning, cunning, dishonor and all forms of evil. A
spy has come to mean an incendiary
and murderer, an assassin of women
and babies, a poisoner of food and
water, a dynamiter and train.wrecker,
a coward and a human reptile.
The fate which made Capt Nathan
Hale immortal is much too good for
the men whom America has suckled
and who have become vipers at the
bosom of their adopted mother. The

disloyalty should be interned, no mat matter

the government parley with him?

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 efSciency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,

Gross Workers Solve in One Minute the

A diamond Is not the hardest thing
in the world. A diamond will cut
glass and bore through case hardened,
tempered chrome steel, but glass and
steel the diamond Itself too are soft
compared to some things. The hardest
thing in the world is a hard woman.
Mrs. Britt was such a woman.
I have seen hard women in my time,
but never one who was harder. She
smiled seldom, and when she smiled it
was like the glitter of Ice. She spoke
infrequently, and when she spoke her
speech was the tinkle of hall on slate
roofing. She did not look as If she had
ever wept In her life.
Every morning Mrs. Britt appeared
at the Red Cross auxiliary in upper
Broadway. She was the first to arrive
in the morning, the last to leave at
night. No one knew much about her,
though. She was not the sort that
make confidences. But that she was a
worker a hard worker no one would
dispute. Eftlciency, as you'd suppose,
was a trait of Mrs. Britt's.
Are Efficient Women Hard?
Efficiency dreadful word that How
often hard women are efficient I How
often efficient woman are hard! She
was both Mrs. Britt The moment she
came In at the door she had her hat
and jacket off. The next Instant she
was at her place, her mouth set, 'grim,
austere and hard hard at work. Prob Probably
ably Probably she did her work only from a sense
of duty. Hard women always profess
that trait. Duty, duty I But, then,
few women are as hard as Mrs. Britt.
In contrast to her was Mrs. Farlow.
She was soft and womanly and gentle
the exact opposite. She was not
very efficient, of course, though she
tried. Day after day Mrs. Farlow sat
at the work table, her mouth quiver
ing, smiling wistfully, the tears starting
in her eyes. The bandages that came
from her were often soiled and rum
pled, poorly sewn, too, by her poor lit little
tle little trembling fingers. It was a won wonder
der wonder she could even see to sew at alL
Again and again what she turned in
had to be thrown away.
But no one reprimanded her. No one
even let fall a hint that she was more
ef a burden than a help. The hearts
of all those women ached with woman womanly
ly womanly pity for the poor, stricken mother.
Once In awhile, though, In her corner
at the back of the room Mrs. Britt
would turn around and throw a glance
at her. The glance was as hard as
rocks harder, in fact.
Mrs. Farlow had a son In the Rain Rain-how
how Rain-how division. The son was the oldest
of her four children, and until he went

"You're not the only mother in this
war," she said. "If you thought a lit little
tle little more about them and a little less
about yourself you'd be doing some something.
thing. something. You'd be helping your son, for
one thing I"
"Why, what do you mean?" gasped
Mrs. Farlow.
Mrs. Britt smiled another adamant,
Icy smile.
"Your son wouldn't die for want of
care. Any one of those bandages Tve
seen you ruin might save his life. Any
one of them 'might save the life of
some other mother's son I"
Mrs. Farlow shrank as If she had
been struck. She'd never thought of It
that way before.
The silence, the grim reserve, which
had cloaked Mrs. Britt seemed for a
moment to quit her. "I have no son,w
she said, her flinty voice biting out the
words. "I had one, but he died at
Guantanamo. It was in the Spanish
war," snapped Mrs. Britt, "and there
were no bandages nothing. That's
why he died. That's why I'm here
now. It's to keep other women moth mothers
ers mothers from becoming the sort of woman
I am." A harsh, brittle laugh escaped
her. "Oh, I know what you think of
me. I've heard' what you said. Well,"
said Mrs. Eritt "my son wouldn't have
died like that maybe If I hadn't sat
around nniffiing and snuffling, never
doing a thing."
Then, her lips drawn Into a bony
smile, she glanced about her once
more and stalked back to her place in
the corner.
That night Mrs. Farlow rose frora
her place at the bandage table and
sought the table at the back. For the
first time that day Mrs. Farlow had
managed to create half a dozen band bandages,
ages, bandages, none of which had to be thrown
away. Timidly she held out a hand to
the drab, dingy figure in the corner.
"I I've done better today,M she said
Mrs. Eritt looked up at her. Out of
the oorner of one glassy eye something
welled, then fell, running slowly down
her cheek.
"ITe was only twenty. He wu an I
had," said Mrs. Britt
