he Gerig brothers, J. J. and A. E.,
some,times irrevently referred to as
Jake and Albert, have a movie (movie
to mirth) stunt that they call "The
Grasshopper." It is what you call a
cantata, we" believe' a "take-off," a
caricature, a sarcasm on grand oiera.
We have never seen it, for we believe
in the proverb "Laugh and Grow
Fat," and as we are about twenty
pounds to the worse now we desire to
look on the gloomy side of life as
much as possible. But we "have heard
skinny people say this "Grasshopper"
'can tighten up the loose skin on their
ribs more so than a beefsteak. It's
dangerous sometimes, for some ladies
have been known to crack the paint

on their faces laughing at it and
have to go home with features look looking
ing looking like a map of the moon. The
Gerig twins,, or rather near-twins,
last gave this sketch at Cooter Pond,
where it was gladsomely received.
One substantial r citizen, declared of
the elder brother: "He can sing more
like a nigger than any other white
man I ever heard." Two or three
others got together and offered to
buy Jake a quarter section of land if
he would move out there and grasshop
for them at all their public entertainments.

O. O. F., which meeting was held in
Miami April 16 and 17. The, minutes
of the said meeting, compiled by
Grand Secretary M. M. Little of
Ocala, were printed in the Star of office
fice office that is to say, an Odd Fellow
office, as all the owners of the Star
and its editor are Odd Fellows or
Rebekahs, and the Ocala lodge has its
home in the Star building. The report
is embodied in a booklet of 120 pages,
and besides its being a neat job it 'will
cost the Grand Lodge much less than
usual, as Secretary Little and tye
Star printers working in : harmony
have condensed the report into about
two-thirds its ordinary size. Every
Ocala Odd Fellow should obtain a
copy, as it contains among' other
things a picture of their staunch and
efficient brother,1 Past Grand Master
and present Grand Secretary M. M.
Little, who has done as much good
work for the order as, any man in it.
It also contains pictures of Grand
Master Shirah and the Odd Fellows'
home at Gainesville, and is packed
full of usefu linformation about the
order.

But, thanks to the navy, our ', losses

IN THE RED CROSS RANKS

By Betsey Massey
"I don't believe 111 go down to the
Red Cross rooms this afternoon, it's
so warm," said Mae, as she lounged
in the porch hammock at home about
11:30 o'clock one morning talking to
her chum.
"No, I wouldn't," sympathized Janet.
"You've been doing your bit and it
seems to me there ought to be enougt
without you."
"Yes," continued Mae, "You see it
is really work, you've no idea what
they make you do. Sometimes you go
down and you sit all afternoon long
at a table just folding and folding all
the time, and the next time they make
you wrap and pack and every one
seems in such rush your head fairly
whirls trying to keep up, it is most
trying. Then other times you stand
and cut and cut and cut, and it is
work. Why, I've gone so regularly
all winter. I've gone for a half a day
every week, and today it is just so hot
I can't go out."
"I thought," interposed Janet, "the
workrooms Were so cool. ;I heard that
some of the rooms were up way high
where there was a fine breeze and
that the others had electric fans. I
should think it would be delightful.
Of course,I haven't been able to go
because I'm so busy at home, but I
knit a little bit and that helps."
"It is pretty cool," admitted Mae,
"but you see the trouble is getting
ready and going out. It is so hot, and
I'm so comfortable here at home. I
don't think anything would move me
this afternon to get out in the sun, I
just couldn't do it, I suppose I'd
better telephone I can't go because
they are depending on me, but 111
give some kind of excuse."
Mae started for the telephone, but
just as she got to the door, the bell
rang, and when she took up the re receiver
ceiver receiver the frown disappeared, yV and
her smiles returned and in her sweet sweetest
est sweetest telephone voise said, "Oh, yes, I'd
love to, why of course, yes, I'll be
ready in fifteen minutes, sure."'
And returning to the porch, Mae
enthusiastically exclaimed, "Oh, Fred
just asked me to lunch with him at
the club, wasn't that grand of him, so
come on, I've got just ten minutes to
dress." ; '; ,h:y.. t'Jy..
"I thought it was too hot to go out
for anything," called Janet as she
followed Mae into the house.
"Oh, but this is different you know.
I couldn't overlook such an invita
tion. All the girls are crazy about
Fred, and they'll be so envious of me.
I've got to go, and you know is really
isn't so hot .when you get out, it's
just the getting started."
Now, dear, reader, does this apply
to you? Are you that kind of a pat
riot? Just because the weather is a,
little warm are you lying at home in
the hammock without a thought about
the boys over there "lying out in
No Man's Land," waiting for the
stretcher bearers? Don't you know it
gets pretty hot in the trenches?
Don't you know it is worse yet on the
fbattle field? Think of the suffering
of the wounded men who lie for hours
without a drop of water to V moisten
their parched lips! Think what it
would mean to those men, if when
they arrived at the dressing stations
there were no dressings, to bind their
wounds, because all the ywomen of
America had found it "too hot" to
work. .'j::..y:
Can't you learn to be a Red Cross
soldier woman at home? Haven't you
any backbone, any grit, that your
patriotism should vanish the minute
it is a little. warm or rainy, or when
you have a luncheon or picture show
invitation?
Don't you know the soldiers have
to fight day and night, continuously
when the call comes, without thought
of heat or cold, rain or sun, sleep o?
no sleep, and they are doing it gladly
without even a murmur, and they are
fighting for you just as surely as if
you lived in devastated France, in instead
stead instead of being comfortably housed in
your own home, not even suffering
any inconveniences as a result of the
war i - -v
And yet, in return for all your gov government
ernment government is doing for you, and despite
the needs of the boys "over there,"
there are still slacker women in our
midst ,who are not engaged in Red
Cross work who still think too much
of their own pleasure to help. y
Don't you realize that if you say
you will do Red Cross work on a cer certain
tain certain day every week, you should con consider
sider consider yourself obligated to fill that
engagement just as much as if you
were enlisted in the army and your
commanding officer called on you to
"forward march?" I
Haven't you yet caught a whiff of
the Red Cross spirit, the feeling of
joy in doing? If you will only work
in the Red Cross rooms, if you will
picture in your mind how much the
bandage?'6r dressing you are making
will save suffering across the water,
you will grow to love the room, to
love the work which brings you near nearer
er nearer to the brave men across the sea
than anything else.
The American Red Cross is the
volunteer army of the government.
Your government is calling to you
through the Red Cross. You can back
up your government in a vital way
by aiding this great Work for hu humanity.

HOW TO PREVENT FIRES

It is an old maxim that fire is a

quickly trodden out; which, being
suffered, rivers cannot quench.
If the following precautions are
taken, fires from accident or span span-taneous
taneous span-taneous combustion will seldom occur.
Keep your house, store or factory
clean.
Don't allow rubbish such as paper,
cobwebs, old clothing, boxes, etc, to
accumulate in closets and unused
rooms.
Don't run your stovepipe through
a wooden partition or through the
roof without proper protection. s
Don't put ashes in wooden recep receptacles
tacles receptacles in or about your premises.
Don't keep matches in any but
metal or earthen safes, and when yon
light one never throw it on the floor.
Don't allow smoking in proximity
to inflammable merchandise or ma material.

Don't close up your place of bus business

Just how the war will terminate

upon Congress.: If there is a strong
sentiment for premature peace in its

through our war program until our in institutions

go through with the war by force,
"without stint or limit," and we must
support that pledge by electing men

For that matter, Americans should

PUBLICITY AND CRITICISM.
"Congress shall make no law
abridging the freedom of speech or of
the press," so reads a clause In our
Constitution. f U i.-y.
' This is a wise provision; The citi citizens
zens citizens of a democracy should ; at all
times know of and be able to criticise
the management of their affairs. In Investigation
vestigation Investigation and criticism In the pres present
ent present war have 1 been of great benefit
in hastening our preparation by point pointing
ing pointing out errors that have been made.
There Is no doubt whatever that the
great safeguards in the conduct of the
war are almost unlimited publicity and
the right of criticism. :
. We are told that, constructive crit criticism
icism criticism is always welcome, but who Is
to' decide what lsconstructive? Why
not criticism without the adjective?
Most, citizens believe that Universal
Military Training as a corrective of
our unpreparedness would have been
constructive;: and yet it was not adopt
ed. Who can tell, if it had been ac
cepted whea-5 first proposed, what the
result would have been orfthis war!
If we had had more: publicity upon
the 'production of aeroplanes, shipping
andordnance,,thesug;stIons of think thinking

stimulated the : rapidity with which
4hese articles; were being produced,
and the delays y that have occurred
"might have been avoided.? fv T
There are things the Government
cannot make public, and these the peo people
ple people do not ask to know. But in the
main full Information ( concerning the
progress of preparation can safely be
given to the people. It is the people's
war ; It Is a war supported by the peo people,
ple, people, financially und physically, and
suggestions by them should be sought

DEMOCRACY VS. FINE WRITING

The Latter Is, Beyond Al! Quectlen,
Dependent Upon the Respect
of the Former.
I do not agree with the pessimists
who think that a democratic civiliza civilization
tion civilization is necessarily an enemy to fine
writing for the public, Henry Seldel
writes In tht Century. Such critics
underrate the challenge which these
millions of minds to be reached 5nd
souls to be touched must possess that
writers, like actors, are Inspired by a
crowded house.
But the thought and the labor and
the pain that He behind good writing
are doubly difficult In an atmosphere
of easy tolerance and good natured
condescension on the part of the
readers of the completed work.
.The novel is the test case for demo democratic
cratic democratic literature. We cannot afford to
pay its practitioners with cash merely,
for cash discriminates in quantity and
little more. Saul and David were
judjred by the numbers of their thou thousands
sands thousands slain; but the test was a crude
one for them and cruder still In fiction.
We cannot afford to patronize -these
novelists as our ancestors did before
us. Not prizes or- endowments or
coterie worship or. certainly, more ad advertising
vertising advertising Is what the American novel novelist
ist novelist requires, but a greater respect for
his craft. -( ;
The Elizabethan playwright was fre frequently
quently frequently despised of the learned world,
and, if a favorite, not always a re respected
spected respected one of the vulgar. Strange
that learned and vulga alike should
repeat the fallacy In dispraising the
pre-eminently popular art of our own
times! To Sir Francis Bacon "Hamlet"
was presumably only a play actor's
play. If the great American story
should arrive at last, would we not
call it "only a novel"?
BREEDING SHEEP FOR FUR
Production of "Persian Lamb" May
Be Added to the Industries of
the United States.
In far-away Bokhara a town and
district In Asiatic Russia, that has- a
ha if -mystical sound to American ears,
"Persian" lambs have beeif grown for
ages for the tightly curled, lustrous lustrous-black
black lustrous-black fleeces that constitute the warm
cover of the natives. And so the fashion
of wearing Persian lamb and 'astrak 'astrakhan
han 'astrakhan has come down from the ages until
women in all civilized lands where
the winters are cold seek their warmth,
and fashion's decree has made them so
popular that the cost of Persian lamb
has gone up 142 per cent In 15 years.
It must have been Instinct Jt could
not have been foreknowledge that a
world war would curtail commerce commerce-that
that commerce-that made an American decide a few
years ago to try breeding the sort of
sheep that bear the highly prizejtl
fleeces, on his 1,900-acre ranch near
Cottonwood Falls, Kan. He reasoned
that If they could, be bred In "Asia,
they could be bred in Kansas, and so
thoroughly did he believe In the propo proposition

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY

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

buying of anything net essential to health and efficiency. Every
