that point, and the people of that

The Ocala Star hits the nail square

the fiasco of the legislature with ref reference
erence reference to any real reforms in the

state school for boys at Marianna, it
says: "If there is- any God he will

surely uunish the law makers, the of

What the legislature did was to ap appropriate

What the legislature did not do was
to provide that the intolerable condi

compelled to live be reformed and

made humane.

During the past years we have eas easily

but little interest in the matter, and
the legislature of Florida, supposed
to represent the people of the stdtt,
takes only that interest that provides

Christmas season forget- one of 1 tht
most useful and untiring of the or organizations
ganizations organizations that help the needy,
namely, the King's Daughters.. This
noble order has in our town a branch
that has always been foremost in the

work of mercy, and this Christmas

season, as at all 'others for- many
years, there is much for it to do. li
is one of the most modest and quiet
of charitable agencies probably too
quiet, for most people are liable to

According to Observations Made by an
Expert, It Bids Fair to Be Become

Woman's invasion of industry bids
fair to put a crimp iu the marriage
lists, according to some Informatiou
which has recently been gathered by
the department of labor.
It has long been an accepted fact
about women as workers that their av average
erage average working life is only five years,
and seldom exceeds seven. This work-

ing period was considered to be merely
an interlude between school and mar
These late investigations have put a
decidedly new face on tjie matter.
Whether it is because women are be becoming
coming becoming more fond of freedom or, be because
cause because the rewards of industry are for.
them becoming higher, or because of
the rising price of keeping house or
the growing reluctance of the male to
marry, the fact remains that many
women are found who have had ten or
more years of industrial experience
and still show no tendency to wed.
Then, too, that versatile woman who
both marries and holds her job is on
the increase. It isto be hoped that
she, rather than the bachelor.. working
woman, is the coming type. But the
significant thing is that the majority
of women now entering industry are
entering to stay.
Since the wrar women have been
pouring Into industries that formerly
employed only men; the number of
women in industry has increased by
one million during the past year. Wom Women
en Women are running elevators, clerking Id
drug and grocery stores, carrying tele telegrams,

driving -trucks, making munitions, and
handling freight in railroad yards. All
these things they are performing effi efficiently,

people are already .beginning to con consider

after the war. As an important and
permanent figure in our industrial life,
she requires special study. Frederic

For the running of the reindeer o'er
the housetops in the night;
Each mind in waking moments a hap happy
py happy picture draws
These are the little children who be believe

Their faith is firm forever; they know
just where he dwells.
Still sweet to them the music of the
reindeer's jinging bells;
When the nights are cold and snowy
. and the lights are burning dim
The wind that's in the chimney still
sings -a song of him.
The children of old Santa Claus;
Theirs are the dreams so sweet
Of star-lit cities, of the toys with
many a Christmas street;
He's still the king of Christmas, who
makes his kingdom's laws

These are the little children who be believe

Did you know the Red Cross Christ Christmas
mas Christmas roll call is now on? Do you know
it is the call of our brothers who are
far away over the sea? Do you know
that if you answer "present" you will
be helping some boy over there, and
you will show that you are backing
our soldiers and wiling to do your
share? Do you know, that to millions
of children this is the sign of a haven,
for they know it means food, clothing,
shelter and love to supply every need ?
Do you know, what the members of
this devoted band all over our belov
ed land have been able to do through
the Red Cross in offering a kind,
helping hand? Will you answer, "i
am here" to the roll call? Will you be
a member this year? If you will youll
receive the "love button," a token of
Christmas good cheer. The work of
the Red Cross is not confined to our
boys on the battlefield, or in hospital,
nor amidst the ruins of Belgium. One
of its great activities is any neces necessary
sary necessary aid to dependents of members
of America's military forces. On the
battlefield the Red Cross presents an
heroic figure, but in America, remov removed
ed removed from destruction and death, it
silently steps to the side of the father
and mother whose boy is over ther.
and who need counsel and aid. No
service is too small for the Red Cross.
It appeals especially to organized
workers because of this quality ot
service. v The Red Cross represents

The Skinner engine at the city
plant did not last long. It had to quit
about 8:30 this morning. As the Har Har-risburg
risburg Har-risburg engine, which has carried
most of the load for three months,
had been taken down for absolutely
necessary repairs, the oil engine, aft after
er after some delay, was started, and car carried
ried carried the load until steam could be
raised at the old plant. The city is
now worse off than ever.
A Star reporter visited the plant
last night and found the big steam
engine running but making so much
noise that it was evident its trouble,
were far from over. The people at
the iron works think they can fix it in
a day or two, but Mr. McKenzie, the
engineer, says he does not believe it
will ever give satisfactory' service
unless the broken parts are obtained
from the factory.
The oil engine can be used a part
of the time, the two engines at the
old plant, tho small are in good order,
and the Harrisburg engine will prob probably
ably probably be running again in a few days,
so perhaps Ocala wm't have to cele-.

Marion county has again won the
honors in a state contest. This time

attended the state corn club meeting
returned home Saturday, and tho' all
of them did not win prizes they were
a happy lot over the success of young
Martin. Mr. Blackburn, the county
demonstration agent, who has charge
of the county corn club, is also proud
of the success of his boys.
