The Star and its recent morning
contemporary, the- Banner, were al always
ways always helpful to each other, and now,
that the other paper has suspended,
it isn't out of place for us to say that
some of their subscribers were also
helpful to each other. We have learrf learrf-ed
ed learrf-ed that there were cases where two
families, living next door, pursued the
policy, of swapping papers one would
take the Banenr, the other the Star,
and after they had read one papei,
they would swap it for the otherl This
was thrift, but it was not fair to
either paper. Such a policy carried
cut thHiout the town would have
caused both papers to suspend instead
of one. It's all right for you to bor borrow,
row, borrow, groceries from your neighbor
if you pay back for that will not
diminish the grocer's business. But if
you borrow your neighbor's paper in instead
stead instead of subscribing for it for your yourself,
self, yourself, you are doing the publisher an
injustice. If his paper is not worth
paying for, you lower yourself to read
it. The suspension of the daily Ban
ner to a Certain extent rids us of com1
petition.Nevertheless, we are not joy joyful
ful joyful about it. We have been rather
proud of the fact that Ocala was the
only town of its size in Florida that
kept up two dailies. That one of them
has suspended is not a good .adver .advertisement
tisement .advertisement for the town. So far as we
can figure it out, there are only forty
or fifty families in the whole city that
do'not take the Star. If forty or fifty
families were swapping papers in instead
stead instead of subscribing to both, they may
have made the deficiency that caused
the Banner to suspend. Now, we
think that everybody who can take
the Star should do so, in the interest
of the city. We are perfectly well
aware that our editorials are punk
and local news isn't what it should be.
We know a darnsite more about the
deficiencies of the paper than any of
the rest of you. But, mind you, we

Now two-thirds of the consuming centers,

the best facilities to meet it large packing

meat across the country.
If there were a better way to perform this'
