The two big battle planes arrived

While the bulk of exhibits is slen slender,

of the best. As we passed thru the
various departments we could not
help wishing that some two or three
thousand farmers from various parts
of the country could accompany us
and see them. It would be the best
advertisement, that Marion county
could have. We do not suppose that
a greater variety of foodstuffs could
be produced in any other area of the
same space' as 'that covered by our
' county. '
In the agricultural hall appeared,
well displayed and in the best con condition,

except wheat, that the Anglo-Saxon
is accustomed to. Cotton is also in

a proverb that wheal; can't be raised
in Florida. Even Prof. Rolfs of the
experiment station at Gainesville has
given it up. But in the Sunimerfield
exhibit is really, tiuly wheat, in the
ear and the sheaf, in the whole grain
and in the flour and the stockfeed.
The fine flour is not there because
there are in Marion county no ma
chines to bolt it. But the whole wheat
flour, the bran, the shorts and the

Mitchell F. Lloyd
Mr. Milby Lloyd of Richmond, Va
who with his family is spending the
winter in this city, received the sad
news yesterday of the death of his
youngest brother, Mitchell F. Lloyd,
of Richmond, who was killed in action
October 26th. This splendid young
man was only eighteen years of age
when he enlisted in the Richmond
Grays in the 26th division of the
104th mounted military police. Later
he went to the Mexican border, where
he served a3 long as needed. When
our country went to war, Mitchell
Lloyd was not yet old enough to en enlist,
list, enlist, but patriotically volunteered his
services for overseas duty, and serv served
ed served on the firing line until he met his
death. Mr. Lloyd leaves a widowed
mother and three sisters in Suffolk,
Va., and three brothers, Mr. Wesley
Lloyd of Quincyi Fla., Blackwell
Lloyd, whr is now in service in
France ,and M. W. Lloyd of Ocala and
Richmond. It is said that death loves
a shining mark, thus it was with this

noble young man who with a bright
and glorious future before him gave
his life willingly for his country, and
greater love can no man have than
this. While he has passed an the
beauty and glory of his young man manhood,
hood, manhood, his last hours were filled with
a consciousness of duty faithfully

performed and brightened and glori

fied with a dying Christian's faith,

visions or a blessed immortality.

While his death will leave an aching

void in many hearts they are con consoled
soled consoled by the knowledge that he has
gone after duty well performed and

his sacrifice has not been in vain.

days. So it stood for several centuries.
It was restored to 31 days by Julius
Caesar, who felt a personal interest
in Quintilis, as it was his birth month.
After the death of Caesar, who hadJ
largely reformed the calendar, Mark

War Trenches, One of the
. Most Ancient War Devices
The trench, consisting of a protec protective
tive protective ditch with or without a defensive
earth work in front, is one of the most
obvious devices of warfare and doubt doubtless
less doubtless one of the most ancient. It is
mentioned in the Bible several times
and we are told that when David pur pursued
sued pursued Saul and "overtook him encamp encamped,
ed, encamped, "Saul lay sleeping within the trench
and his spear stuck in the ground at
bis bolster." Shakespeare knew the
' military use of trenches. In the play
of "Corlolanus," laid in the time of
aricient Rome, he speaks of the enemy
"following us to our trenches,! and
again of "our party to their trenches
driven." These and other quotations
that could be given show that trenches
are by no means a modern device. The
fighters of old knew how to dig them themselves
selves themselves in. The modern trench is mere merely
ly merely an improvement and elaboration of
an old device.
