The tax levy in this county this
year, is 21 mills on a valuation of
7,255,210., This gives the county
authorities $152,359.41, of which the
school board receives $50,786.94.
- This Teaves $101,572.94 for all othei
county purposes, including keeping up
over two hundred miles of roads, on
which the chairman of the board of
commissioners says should be spent
this year not less than $100,000.
The people put up with their patch patched

Mr. Brinson wants another $22,000 on

But this $50,00 is not all the schools
receive. Not by a jugfull. .They re
ceive all the poll taxes, nearly $3000
more. And the board of county com
missioners ypays certain fees for the
school board.
Then there are the sub-school dis
trict taxes one to three mills on each
district. The total is $30,713.16.
Altogether, our ctfunty schools re

we can't put up any school buildings

But Mr. Brinson says his hands are
tied and he has no tools to work with.

We are glad to say our. little fund
for military equipment for the Ocala
High School has gone over the top.
It was eiven a strong and sudden
shove Monday by Mrs. Ford Rogers,
who contributed five dollars.
Mrs. Rogers, who boards at the
Arms House, has always taken a deep
interest in the young men among the
boarders. Her interest in them has
been increased by their going into the
army. So she paid a dollar apiece for
herself and four of the patriotic
young men, J. Duncan MacDonald,
Charles Simpson, J. Gid Parrish and
Hendricks Shephard.
Saturday night, Mr. Frank Drake
handed us a dollar for the fund, and

just received an urgent appeal from
the government for the conservation
of 'two metals needed in the prose prosecution

which can be used merely by conserv conserving
ing conserving heretofore waste products this
metal is the homely tin which is used
for so many domestic purposes the
other is the rarer but equally essen
tial metal of platinum which many
of our members possesses in the
form of jewelry and other articles
that they may be willing to sacrifice
for their country's netds.
Surely one or the other of these
metals can be collected by the Red
Cross members in our town.
We ask our members and the pub

of tin foil, every empty tube of salve
or toothpaste, every old pewter toy
or, vessel of any sort. TIN is made
from these and we MUST HAVE TIN
Platinum we have said is more
precious but that, too, many of our
members have. We ask the help of
each patriotic citizen; of every store
using tin in any form; of every per
son willing and anxious to help win
the war. t
We cannot use tin cans they are
tin "in name only" but WE CAN

Editor Star: The controversy be be-twen
twen be-twen you and Supt. Brinson has been
interesting reading to me. In pass passing
ing passing judgment as to which is right and
for the good of the taxpaying public,
my verdict is in your favor and my
reason for this decision is as follows:
We are living in and under abnorm abnormal
al abnormal conditions, the world war is on us,
our U. S. government is calling on ail
the people to loan it every dollar we
can for liberty bonds and war savings
stamps. This is right. Also to give
every extra dolar we can raisefor the
Red Cross and the Y. M. C. A. This is
also right. Our government further
levies a direct tax on every private
citizen who writes a letter of one
cent, on every postal card one cent,
on every parcels post package where
the postage amounts to twenty-six
cents and over two cents, on every
express package three cents, on every
railroad ticket eight per cent and
over, on every legal document, prom
issory note, etc., from two cents to
one dollar per thousand and on and
on according to the expressed value
of the paper. On every annual income
of two thousand dollars and over from
business, farm or profession, two .per
cent and if the present pending bill
before Congress passes, the income
tax will be six'per cent from the
president down to the private citizen.
This is all right; we must win this
war. If our soldiers offer their lives
and endure the hardships of war, it is
the least thing we can do to give of
our money every way demanded by
our government to give comfort, food
and raiment to those who are making
the sacrifice for us. On the first day
of November (next Friday) our state
government demands from her citi citizens
zens citizens in taxes over three million dol dollars
lars dollars to meet the expense of the state
and to pay hotel inspectors, pure food
inspectors, fertilizer inspectors, rural
school inspectors, convict inspectors,
bank inspectors, state auditors and
other officers of different titles and
In addition to this the counties
must have in taxes at least three
fimes as much as the state to pay of
ficers and muddle up the roads.
In addition to this the cities and
towns must have a large chunk to pay
officers and make the water flow in
dry places and sometimes make the
light shine in darkness. In addition to
this the state demands a license tax
on automobiles and other professions
to keep men looking nice and play
like they were building good roads.
Now last but not least our school
officers are advertising by pamphlet
and in the state'press to induce voters
to vote an additional constitutional
tax of three mills on the people for
county schools while we now have a
constitutional right to levy and col collect
lect collect for the counties a seven mill tax,
a district tax of three mills for
schools and the state levies a one one-mill
mill one-mill tax for schools and inNaddition ts
that where a district issues bonds to
buiid school houses and make othei
needed improvement a tax of five
mills may be added. What more do
we want? We know the property of
this county is not assessed at any anything
thing anything near a full cash value. Friend
Brinson tells us of the scarcity of
teachers and vacant school houses
and tries to make the impression that
a ten-mill constitutional tax would
fill the school houses with teachers.
In this" I think he is mistaken, a3
many of the teachers have gone to
do war work at an advanced salary.
So have many field hands and men in
all industrial pursuits of life. They
have gone to do war work at advanc advanced
ed advanced wages. The increase of taxes will
not bring them back, but when this
war shall end and the clerical posi positions,
tions, positions, the shipbuilding plants, the
munition plants and the work at can cantonments
tonments cantonments will not further need hun hundreds
dreds hundreds and thousands of the people
now employed, they will return home
without much money and will seek
employment in the fields, in the in industrial
dustrial industrial pursuits and in the school
room. Then the vacant school houses
will have teachers at fifty to seventy seventy-five
five seventy-five dollars per month to teach no
higher than the eighth grade and to
work and eat and play only six hours
per day from 8 a. m. to 2 p. m.
I think friend Brinson has set his
plow too deep. Better set his back back-band
band back-band so as not to hang his plow under
a root. The war is on, we are under
abnormal conditions. We don't know
what another year will bring upon us.

During the first day they had visit visited

Homer caught the girl in his arms,
speaking out his love for her. And
that had been the end. Like some
startled bird she had escaped nd
flown from his embrace, and when

apology she had not appeared at all.

it may be in the more prosaic and less

Whereupon, Homer, Inwardly fuming
at his admired one's practical coolness,
bade the inn good-by, and began a
searching tour of the hills.

He alighted and made his way to
the lilac bush which grew beside the
open window of a vacated log cabin;
looking inside, he was surprised to
see a reclining camp chair in the center-
of the room. Entering curiously,
he sank into the chair, idly drawing
from Its side bracket a recent Illus Illustrated

Gazing through the open door across
the vista of glorious scenery Homer
mentally complimented the reader on
his choice of location. Then as he re replaced

at the bold and pleasing handwriting
brought a quick flush to his face. Sure Surely
ly Surely this and the penmanship of his own
hasty note of dismissal were the same.
So Justine had found her way to this
deserted cabin ; then her stopping place
must be in a nearby farm house." The
heading of the closely written page
caught his attention, Dearest, he
read, "Oh, my dearest!

trembling fingers. So this was the

How Mark Twain Turned Joke on Vi Vienna
enna Vienna Authorities Will Be New
Story to Many.
The letters of Mark Twain record
but little concerning the years he
spent in the Austrian capital, the
Christian Science Monitor observes.
The humorist did some special writing
for American papers during those
"Wanderjahre." Indeed, the Vienna
Journalists took him to their hearts as
a colleague of a particularly genial
type and often invited him to a
friendly "spread," at which the guests
were members of the Austrian fourth
estate. The story of how he got into
trouble with the authorities, through
the Indiscretions of a Vienna Journal Journalist,
ist, Journalist, has probably never been published.
As the tale goes,a certain reporter,
either in a facetious or a vindictive
moment, gave out that Mark Twain had
been seen suspiciously loitering about
the bridge which spans the Danube
canal near the Ring strasse, and not
far from the Hotel Metropole, at which
the Clemenses lived. Mark could not
let this reflection upon his character
go unchallenged. He hastened to ex explain
plain explain to apologize, in fact, for having
given the authorities the slightest
anxiety about him.
The explanation was thoroughly
Twainlike. He had found by the
bridge the longest German word he
had ever seen and, in order to compre comprehend
hend comprehend it in all its longitude and lati latitude,
tude, latitude, he had pinned one end of it to
the bridge with the ideaof unfolding
it! Bearing his precious burden with
him, he came to the opposite end of the
bridge, only, alas, to find that he still
had yards to spare The apology was
accepted with many a broad grin.
Prof. Flinders Petrie Has Thrown
Much Light on Sources of Myth Mythology

The question of the character and
origin of the local gods of Egypt is
still obscure; but a paper by Prof.
Flinders Petrie, published in "Ancient
Egypt,' part 3, 1817, does much to
clear It np. Professor Petrie collected
the original records of these cults, and
by marking the headquarters of each
deity he arrived at important results.
Ra appears in only one southern city,
and his cult seems to have come from
the northeast. The distribution of
Mut, the mother-goddess, is decidedly
eastern, while that of Amen is west western.

Egypt by the desert road, as he had
there two centers of the first class, and
he was introduced by the Red sea way
to the eastern delta.
The distribution of the Oslride triad
indicates a settlement so early in the
land that the worship was generally
diffused. Professor Petrie sums up
his article thus: "The geography of
the worship of the gods is thus seen
to have a considerable value histori historically,

connections. When more complete re research

Chinese Exports of Human Hair.
Since the abolition of the queue af after

long pigtails of Chinese hair are no
longer readily available. The dealers
are relying more and more on the
combings of women, although there
are men who make it a part of their
business to let their hair grow to about
eight inches In length and then sell
It to the barber, who in turn sells to

hair is assorted according to length and
tied in bunches. Most' of the exports
go to England, France and the United
