Trinidad, Colo., Nov. 20th.
Editor Star: Of course you had the
idea that I would not write to such an
unregenerate old rascal as yourself,
but this will tell you that T think so
much of you that I am counting you
among the friends' to whom I care to
write. I wish that you might drop in
on me and we could have a good talk
together. I think that would be bet better

Ocala. for there is so much here that
I 'would like to have you see. I sent
you a paper a few days ago in which
was copied an editorial of yours. I
wanted the people here to see what a
Southern man thought of some things.
But as so often happens with' news newspaper

Ocala Star of Ocala, California. I do
not understand how your newspaper
brethren can be, so very careless as to
do a thing like that.
Well, here I am, a long way away
from Florida and, its many attractive
things. But I like it here, and find
many attractive things in this moun mountain
tain mountain country. I believe that this cli climate
mate climate is fully as. healthful as that of
Ocala, and while it is much colder it
certainly makes one feel fine. The air
is perfect and the water is as fine as
any I have ever found; clear, pure,
cold and soft. It surely beats that of
Ocala. But I have never a word to
say against Ocala, for I believe it has
the best climate in Florida. .If you
could just have -some of our moun mountains
tains mountains there it would make it so good
that even some of your pessimists
there x would never be willing to die.
But that might be bad for Ocala and
Marion county, for I believe that they
need a few funerals to help conditions
there. I got here on Oct. 4th, and
had services on Oct. v 6th. and since
that time have had no services be because
cause because everything in the way of gath-
erings has been stopped by the flu. It
has not been of the very severe char character
acter character in Trinidad, but it still con continues,
tinues, continues, and I do not know when they
will permit things to be opened. In
some of the coal mining camps, or
towns, near us it has been very bad,
and there have been many deaths. It
certainly has been a mighty bad thing
all over the country.. But we have
done good work on the war work
drive. The quota for this city and
county, on the basis of the two hun hundred
dred hundred and fifty million dollars, was
$51,000, and we have raised about
$57,000, and it i ? still coming in. This
was the first city of any size in tho
entire state to go over its allotment.
So you see that it is not dead by any
means. ...
Trinidad is not what you would call
a pretty, city, but it has many very
pretty spots in it, and all around are
beautiful places without number. We
are about 6000 feet above sea level,
and there are a number of peaks
within sight of the city that run above
3,000 feet above sea level. Many of
them are covered with snow nearly all
the year and they are very attractive
to me, for I love the mountains. I

When we was a small boy, which
has been over forty years ago, and

were duly impressed by, the the ex expression,

men had no control or for which
they desired to avoid responsibility.
The belief in which the expression
originated came down from the time
when ignorant savages thought that
a great, supernatural being slung the
lightning, rode on the wings of the
storm and occasionally caused an
earthquake by pushing a continent a
few yards out of his way. Now none
but the most ignorant cling to that
Sometimes yet, however, the ex expression

didn't, and in this case, as in the
other, it imposes only on the ignorant.
Consequently we can't help greatly
approving of the following from the
Tampa Tribune:

The Thirty-first (Dixie) division is
among those named to return soon
from France. The 124th Infantry
(formerly Second Florida) belonged
to the division but it did not go over
until two or three weeks after the
division sailed. So we can't tell for
sure whether it will be with the divis
ion or not. Nearly all private soldiers
that went from Florida with the two
regiments from the state were trans
ferred into other commands when they
had ben sufficiently trained and sent
to France, but most of the officers
remained at Camp Wheeler training

was in September. The three Ocala

Marshal Foch was born among the

commanded them well.
J. E. Worthington of the Tampa
Times is another competent man who
is reporting the proceedings of the

There is lots of good sport for
hunters in the east of the Oklawaha
section of Marion county. A sample
instance was when Mr. John McQuaig

black bear. There were three of the

fight followed. One bear v was killed
and the other two routed. Mr.. Mc

Senator Fletcher sends us the fol following

very interesting to our people at this
Press Interview, Secretary of War,
November 15, 1918
"The first units to be demobilized
will be the development battalions at
all camps. The development battal battalions
ions battalions are made up of men who wer
under physical requirements or who
needed some special drill or discipline
to bring them into full military value
underdeveloped physically, largely.
"No furloughs will be granted, but
they will be honorably discharged, of
course. There is no certain date.
"Every man who is discharged from
the army has to have a physical ex examination
amination examination and a very careful record
made for statistical status, and in instead
stead instead of furloughing them and thet
discharging" they will be discharged,
so that there may be no subsequent
claims against the government. All
of those men will have to be examin
ed by the doctors and the medical de
partment is prepared to take over the
question of rapid examination, and
discharge. No date has been set for
examination, but I have an idea it will
be soon. It is not contingent upon
anything, but will be done as soon as
"It is difficult to grant requests
from business institutions, etc., for
men, because it breaks up units and
creates an inequality of conditions and
it is not likely that individual re
quests can be granted.
"The physical examination applies
also to students at schools.
"The central officers' training camp
schools will be discontinued.
"The thing that we have to do and
the thing that we must do is to de
mobilize the men in this country and
all the others with reference to their
occupational opportunities, so as to
let them get back into the normal life
of the country without filling the
country with unemployed men. The
war department is working in close
co-operation with the department of
labor and the war industries board as
much in the discharge of men as in
the termination of contracts."

Press Interview by the Chief of Staff,
November 16, 1918
"With reference to what is being
done after the armistice was formally
signed, I have issued orders in accord
ance with a plan which we have evolv
ed for the prompt reduction of our
forces in the United States. I first
ordered the demobilization of the de
yelopment battalions throughout the
country. They are 71 in number and
embrace in strength 98,199 men. The
second order carries out the demobili
zation of conscientious objectors who
are not serving sentences. Third, the
spruce production division; fourth,
central training schools for officers,
with certain modifications; fifth, the
United States'guards, who comprised
something like 135,000. on paper;
sixth, railway troops; seventh, depot
brigades; eighth, replacement camps;
ninth, and last, combat divisions.
"We have in the United States now
something like 1,700,000 men, and to
muster out a force of that kind, of
course, will take some time. Each
man has to be examined physically,
his final accounts made, and a copy of
his medical record transferred to the
war risk insurance bureau, so that
the men may get compensation they
are entitled to under the act, which
must be properly safeguarded. Great
masses of blank forms !iave been pre
pared in advance, and they are being
shipped to the various camps for use
as these orderse go into effect.
"The orders that have already been
issued effect some 200,000 men. I ex expect

When the machine is in full opera operation

"In handling this problem of demob
ilization, one of the features which
had to be considered was the -subse
quent retaining of men for the regu
lar army, or what will be the regular
army when Congress passes laws re
organizing the army. When the war
broke out there were only a limited
number of such men in the service,
and the great number of men who
filled out these units were men who
voluntarily enlisted for the period of
the war. So we have offered these
men who came in fdr the period of
the war the option of reenlisting if
they care to.
"We have offered an immediate
honorable discharge with a furlough
of one month upon reenlistment, and
we propose to go before Congress
and ask Congress to give every single
man who has been honorably dis discharged
charged discharged one month's pay, whatever
his grade is, as a bonus. These men
who reenlist will not lose their bonus.
Under present laws every man who
is discharged from the whole army is
entitled to wear his uniform for per period

necessary thing, because the releas releasing

to put themselves in a class where
they can be used for future military

sions commissions in the reserve corps. The rest
of them will be discharged. In this
connection I also issued an order to
all staff corps that the discharge of

the cutting down of work, and they
have been directed to submit lists of
officers and men from time to time as
they can be spared for discharge.

him to return to the United States

regular army, which will police it
and take care of it and make it ready
for the troops as they come back
from France.
"With reference to casualties in the
American Expeditionary Forces, I

ease, disease, the surer you are to get it. As
the disease is spread principally by
contact thru sneezing, coughing or
spitting, many health authorities have
advised that everyone wear a gauze,
which is daily washed and saturated
with a one to five hundred solution of
zinc sulphate in water, and then dried
before wearing over the the nose and

of exercise in the open air and plenty

irritating non-irritating physic as Dr. Pierce's Pleas Pleasant

lemonade and then cover' up with
plenty of clothes in bed so as to get a
good sweat. When sweating is free
and the fever reduced take a dose of r.
two Anuric Tablets every four hours,
followed by drinking at least a glass
or two of hot water. Anuric Tablets
help quickly to relieve the soreness of
the muscles and bones from which
most patients complain and help the
kidneys flush out the poisons.

excessive discharge from the noise,
probably nothing is better than a
