why goods for South America are
shipped from northern ports instead
of southern, the southern ports of
course being nearer South America
by several hundred miles than the
northern. Seems to us the reason is
easy to understand. Nearly all the
goods shipped to South America are
made in northern cities, and the
shorter the rail and the longer the
water haul between the two points
the less the freight rate. Men who

make goods in Connecticut would pay
more freight by rail from New York
to Jacksonville or Savannah than by
water to Rio or Bueno3 Ayres, and
would still have the water haul to pay
for. Immense quantities of cotton,

go fully pardoned, and, gathering

was rejoiced and after fifteen years
incarceration, upon arriving home
called his wife and children in order
to obey the mandate of his liberator.

years up, to the astonishment of the

story short, he wrote the governor he

SOME GOOD SUGGESTIONS

Miss Jefferson Bell Tells now Tour Tourists
ists Tourists May be Attracted
; to Marion
Miami, July 12.
Editor Star: In a recent issue of
the Star I note suggestions for inter interesting
esting interesting tourists in Ocala and because
of my personal interest in the town,
I am joining you with some sugges suggestions
tions suggestions along the same lines.
Getting tourists to come to a sec section
tion section "is a matter of advertising, pure
and simple, and a satisfied tourist is
the best advertisement a town can
have. With Ocala in mind, I studied
the tourist question last season in
Mami. Living in a large apartment
house filled with tourists and coming
in direct contact with hundreds thru
my work, I may have learned some something
thing something of value to Ocala.
Miami makes a special effort to
please the people who spend the sea season
son season here. The whole population is
keenly awake to the value of tht
tourist business and everyone in Mi Miami
ami Miami does his or her bit by making the
town attractive and h,y being cordial
and interested in the people who
come. Ample -accommodations f are
now provided in modern apartment
houses and hotels and in homes.
Pryor's band was kept last season
for the entertainment of the tourists
and gave two concerts daily in Royal
Palm Park -facing Biscayne Bay, an
afternoon and an evening concert.
The park is the meeting place for the
tourists in Miami and all through the
golden mornings the benches were
filled with women knitting and men
reading or lazily watching the boy or
the planes overhead. There were
groups, playing chess and checkers
and pitching horse-shoes under the
cocoanut palms. Trips to the beach
for a swim or to watch the bathers or
a game of tennis or golf at Miami
Beach afforded pleasant diversions.
For the evenings, there were dances
at the hotels and casinos, grill nights
at the Royal Palm and always the
moving pictures. Sime enough for
any town to follow.
I found that people come to Flor Florida
ida Florida for the climate and they come to
Miami because it is the place every everyone
one everyone knows' about. They come back on
account of the climate and local at attractions.

means advertise the fact. The money
spent would soon come back in busi business

coming in automobiles and Ocala
should pest the roads along the en entrance

decide after they reach Jacksonville
where they will go. These people
could be reached by advertisements
in tho Jacksonville papers and by
advertising on moving picture screens
in Jacksonville and other tourist cen centers
ters centers to catch them on the return trip.
A public park with seats is an ab absolute
solute absolute necessity and a band of little
less importance. Ocala has no beach
to offer but if "the people there would
get busy and make a park of the
Taylor pond property arid put in a
big swimming pool and tennis courts
and make the street along the A. C.
L. railway through which the travel traveling
ing traveling public .passes and from which it
gets its view of Ocala, look less like
a bat roost, two miles long, it might
reasonably expect people to stop over
instead of going on through to the
more expensive resorts.
Ocala' needs tourists but at present
she has little to offer them in the way
of accommodations and entertain
ment. Only a small per cent of the
people who come south for the winter
live at the hotels. Furnished houses
and apartments must be available
when they come in numbers.
The Marion County Fair would be
an attraction if held later in the sea season.

Played Too Slew Pieces.
Wienlawski had his humorous ex experiences
periences experiences this even after he was
quite widely known. On one occasion,
relates Alexander Bloch In the New
York Times, he was asked by a
wealthy British nohleman to state his
terms for playing a half-hour at' his
home. They came to an agreement,
and on the even! n 2 of the 'musicale
WlenlawsM opened the program wltb
Beethoven's Romanze In F.
He was playing his best and deeply
engrossed in the music when he sud
denly noticed out of the corner of his
eye the host nervously lookinsr at his
watch. This happened several times
before the Romanze was finished.
At Its close, as he was bowing his
acknowledgments to rapturous ap applause,
plause, applause, the British peer caught him
by the sleeve and whimpered In his
ear:
"For heaven's sake,, man. how much
do you expect to get through In half
an hour at this rate? Why do you play
such slow pieces?"
' Steady as a Rock.

GUESSING THE WOMEN'S AGES
New Game Among Cape Steamship!
Passengers Stirred Up Wrath ;
of Entire Party.
To relieve the monotony of a recent
homeward voyage, the smoking-saloor
habitues of a Cape steamship invented
a new sweepstake. The bright idea
originated during a debate as to the
age of one of the women passengers.
"Let's take all the women in tte pas passenger

who thought of the sweepstake, "and
each of, us guess their individual ages,
add up the total, and hand his esti estimate

The sweepstake was carried out,
but, so far from beguiling the tedium
of a voyage It made it worse, relates,
a correspondent, for it ended In a cer certain

estimate was 450 years under the win-,

also embittered who had gone round
to women asking them to give him
their judgment as to other women's

was 600 years above the winner's

And the purser was most embittered

WHAT YOUR MONEY IS WORTH

Comparative Value of Coins of Dif.
ferent Countries of the World
Explained.
How much is a franc? A ruble? A
mark? To be well posted a man should
be familiar with the money la circula circulation
tion circulation in foreign lands, observes the Co Columbus
lumbus Columbus Dispatch. And if the man is
of military age or inclination there is
no telling how soon he may be called
upon to exchange his perfectly good
American dollars for the medium of
circulation In France, England, Russia,
Germany or other European countries.
Of course values are changing al almost
most almost daily, as regards the exchange
of foreign money for TJnele Sam's dol dollars,
lars, dollars, but under ordinary conditions It
can be figured that in Germany the
mark Is worth 23.8 cents In United,
States money. The German thaler is
equal to three marks, and the krone (a
gold piece) equals ten marks. In Eng England
land England the sovereign (gold) Is worth $4. $4.-8C65,
8C65, $4.-8C65, a pound sterling; the penny
equals two of our cents, the crown
$1.21 and the shilling 24 cents.
It is interesting to note that the
franc of France (worth 19.3 cents) is
also the unit of currency in Belgium
and Switzerland, and that it is equal
to the peseta of Spain, and lira of
Italy, the drachma of Greece, the, leu
of Roumanla, the dinar of Serbia and
the bolivar, of Venezuela. The Rus Russian
sian Russian ruble, normally, is worth 51.5
cents, the piaster of Turkey 4.4 cents,
the Japanese yen 49.8 cents, the Mexi Mexican
can Mexican peso (silver) 49.8 cents and the
Chinese tael 75 cents to 83 cents.
And there's no wonder that "Chinese
monee" is tossed about so carelessly,
for the copper cash (China's monetary
unit) is worth a United States dollar
when you have 1,750 of them.

The next day our troops attacked
again and drove the Bulgarians out
of their trenches. In them they found
the bodies of a number of onr men,
each one with his throat cut. That is
the favorite method of disposing of
prisoners." It was after the capture
of Hill 1212 that the Irish Amazon,
while lying In hospital, 'was awarded
by the Serbian crown prince the Kara Kara-George

The American soldier might do worse
than swear "By Godfrey I" Whether

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

in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
