I Dear Sir: I am in receipt this
j morning: of a communication from
f ' : Mr. Stuart, chief of power and. light
'.: ; ii division of the U. S. fuel adminis

tration, Washington, in regard to the
city electric light and water works
of Ocala. Mr. Stuart advises me it
is not the"" intention of the fuel admin administration
istration administration to force the city of Ocala
into i a matter that will result in a
financial sacrifice and that it was
only with the idea that the water
power could be purchased at a price
no greater than vthat which your
present power is -costing, and for the
purpose of conserving coal and fuel
oil that the matter was taken up by
the 'fuel administration.
. If your city could arrange to. use
wood exclusively at your plant and
not call on the fuel administration
for -fuel oil, I think the arrangement
would be entirely satisfactory to Mr.
Stuart and it does not occur to me
that such an arrangement would
work any great hardship on your city.
I'know the people of Ocala are thor thoroughly
oughly thoroughly ; patriotic and ready and will willing
ing willing to back the government in all of
its endeavors connected with, the win winning

most utmost importance for the fuel oil in

possible way. I fell quite sure your
city will be ready and willing to as assure

you will make no further demands on
them for fuel oil to operate your city
plant. -
Please advise me if your city will
give us this guarantee, and oblige.

, Marion county people needn't feel
discouraged because Dade has beaten
them over the top in the war savings
stamps campaign. Dade has vastly
less to do than. Marion. The 'quotas
of both counties were fixed by the
census of 1910. At that time, Dade

had -29,707 people and Marion 29,454.

Dade now claims, and probably has,
75,000 people, a very large proportion
of them well-to-do. j Marion's popu-

ation, owing to the war, is probably
ess than it was eight years ago. An

other thing to consider is that Dade

has vastly more of money making

establishments than Marion. Dade

has enormous hotels and big stores

to cater -to its great tourist trade it

is one of the playgrounds of the rich,
it has an aviation camp and is beside
one of the great truck producing
regions of the country. Marion has
very little but its farms and the mer mercantile
cantile mercantile establishments, banks and in industries
dustries industries that go with farms. It is
true that Marion I is more solid than

Dade; it could live after Dade had
starved to death, but its ready money

comes in the steady dollar by dollar
fashion instead of flying around in the

air in. flocks as it does in Dade, at
times. All the same 1 we I congratu congratulate

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 efliciency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser-
vices, that is, labor and materials,, needed by the United States Gov-
ernment for war purposes. And, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money

Those who dream of a banquet,
awake to lamentation and sorrow.
Thoe who dream of lamentation and

they dream they do not know that they

they are dreaming; and only when they

By-and-by comes the great awakening,

Diving Water Birds.
Water birds which are ordinarily
able to float high on s the water can
also sink at will by expelling the air
which Is Inclosed within the film of
feathers surrounding their bodies,
thus making them heavier than water.
This mechanical trick on the part of
diving birds Is probably familiar to all
who have watched the kingfisher at
close quarters, and have noted the
sudden contraction la the bird's ap apparent
parent apparent sire as it takes the plunge.
This Is more easily observed in the
case of the starling, which sometimes
imitates the kingfisher by plunging into
water for food. The shrinkage of
the bird in apparent size is very .noh
tlceable when, after hovering above
the surface, It turns downwards to
