FROM .'AN OCALA BOY
' ON THE FRONT
Argonne Forest, France, Nov. 23:
Editor Star: Just a few lines to let
you know where one Ocala boy. was
when fighting ceased. I am with
General Pershing's first army and was
in the Argonne Forest. The places
that were towns are just cross-roads
now. Maybe a wall but it looks like
a screen all full of holes.
The' men of the A. E. F. won't get
any turkey Thanksgiving, but I am
thankful to be alive and able 'to ea't
canned "Willie" or iron rations. I
have been all over France and have
seen many fronths, but of all the
drives and battles I think the drive
in the Orgonne forest was the worst
of all. The forest in places is r swept,
'as clean as a parade ground, and I
have seen holes,, blown up where you
could put the Temple theater and
cover it up and still leave a dent in
the ground.
It has been rumored that the First
army has done its work and would go
home after. peace.. If so, look out in
Ocala, t because I'm about to start a
drive that way, and I hope to invade
Florida soon. Your friend.

When Lee surrendered to Grant,
the magnanimity of all the chief con

well have resulted in a reunited andi
consolidated nation, so potent even
then in effectual resources as to be
invincible. The real people of both
sections were ready to bury the hat
chet and start again. But the whole
immediate moral effect of all that
bloody business was lost because the
victors were misrepresented by a
horde of scurvy politicians.
The people themselves went back
to their farms and factories in the
full belief that all was settled, while
the politicians got busy. The result
was the carpetbag regime which en engendered
gendered engendered more gall and bitterness
than open war had done.
We are again at-the parting of the
ways; our young men have done their
work nobly and the enemy lies at our
feet. He must pay to the last jot and
tittle in moneys and indemnities for
the x destruction he has wrought, and
an outraged world will assuredly at attendto

Ocala is doing a good Christmas
business." The streets and stores hav
been thronged all this week with
shoppers from the country.
We find the first testimony to the
value of democracy in the Bible. The
peddle' of Israel did fairly well until
they began to bawl for a king.
We regret to see that there hah
been a falling off in the interest tak tak-n

and charity work. This falling off is
not so great in Ocala as in many
other places, but it should not be
evident anywhere. Six months ago,
the average American family would
many would have given all to
have known that the war would end
as soon as it has. Its early ending
has saved us sacrifice incalculable.

Now that it has ended, we should be
willing to give in' gratitude a part of
what we have been saved. There will
be no time in the life of any one now
alive when it will not be necessary to
help the Red Cross. We have more
than two million of our own men now
in France, they are coming home very
slowly and they will need the Red
Cross until the day the last one steps
aboard the train for his own home.
And we ned the Red .Cross, not only
to keep America's name and fame
bright in all parts of the world, but
right here at home. We might need,
it in Ocala tomorrow. Let us not be
slaekers in supporting its work.

A SENSIBLE DECISION

(Tampa' Tribune)
The Ocala Daily Banner has sus suspended
pended suspended publication. The publisher an announces
nounces announces that the Weekly Banner will
be continued, and until such time aa.
conditions warrant, it will be the only
edition of the Banner published. For
more than forty-seven years the
Weekly Banner, and for the last sevT
enteen years the Daily Banner have
been factors for good in the state un under
der under the able editorship f Frank Har Harris,
ris, Harris, who f recently retired' from the
profession.
In the last issue of the Daily Ban Banner,
ner, Banner, which came out Sunday, the pub publishers
lishers publishers gave as their reasons for sus suspending,
pending, suspending, publication of the daily un until
til until some time in the future, the fol following:
lowing: following:
"The price of print paper, telegraph
tolls, electric lights, gas, wages, pos postage,
tage, postage, and, indeed everything that en enters
ters enters into its publication have so enor enormously
mously enormously increased and since the sign signing
ing signing of the armistice conditions have
become so abnormal, there has. been
such a relaxation in business and ap apparently
parently apparently in all the affairs of life, and
the demand for news has so lessened
in comparison to what it was when
the war was 'in progress, that the
profits of the daily, at this time, do
not justify the expense of publica publication."
tion." publication." t -
Publisher S. M. Lummus shows
sound business sense in this decision,
under the conditions surrounding the
business in a small town, and with
opposition in the daily field at home,
and coming in from various larger
places.
It is not bravery or sense of duty
that leads a man on, day after day, to
lose money because he has been doing
business on a line that has become at attached
tached attached to him and the people. It is
cqjnmon sense and courage that says
"I have my own family to look out
for now." The price of paper, the
white unprinted paper that goes into
a Sunday issue of .the Tribune costs
twice as much as is charged for the
printed paper placed inthe hands of
its readers. This condition makes it
foolhardy for a small paper not well
protected with- advertising contracts
and paper contracts, to attempt to do
business; and we little doubt that
were it not for the pardonable pride
that rules the breast of many other
small publishers, they too,' would go
into the less costly and more remu remunerative
nerative remunerative field of the high-class, first first-grade
grade first-grade Florida weekly.
We regret to lose our Daily Ban
ner and trust conditions may be such
that its publication may be, as is in
tended, soon resumed; but with our
proffer of regrets we extend our con
gratulations to the business judgment
which .permits the sacrifice of a proud
daily record for the sake of keeping
business at least balanced' financially.

Hot Water for
Sick Headaches

Tells why everyone should drink
hot water with phosphate
: f In it before breakfast.

Headache of any. kind, is caused by

auto Intoxication which means self-

poisoning. Lives and bowel poisons
called toxins, sucKed into the, blood,
through the lymph ducts, excite the
heart which pumps the blood so fast
that it congests in the smaller arteries

and veins of the head producing vio

lent, throbbing pain and distress, called
headache. You -become nervous, de despondent,
spondent, despondent, sick', feverish and -miserable,
your meals sour and almost nauseate
you. Then you resort to acetanilide,
aspirin or the bromides which tempor temporarily
arily temporarily relieve but do not rid the blood of
these irritating toxins.
A glass of hot water with a teaspoon teaspoon-ful
ful teaspoon-ful of limestone phosphate in it, drank
before breakfast for awhile, will not
only wash these poisons from your sys system
tem system and cure you ptheadache but will
cleanse, purify and freshen -the entire
alimentary -canal.
Ask your pharmacist for a quarter
pound of limestone phosphate. It is In Inexpensive,
expensive, Inexpensive, harmless as sugar, and al almost
most almost tasteless, except for a sourish
twinge which is not unpleasant.
If you aren't feeling your best, if
tongue is coated or you wake up with
bad taste, foul breath or have colds,
indigestion, biliousness, constipation
or sour, acid stomach, begin the phos phos-phated
phated phos-phated hot water cure to rid your
pystem of toxins and poisons.
u Results are quick and it Is claimed
that those who continue to flush out
the stomach, liver and bowels every
morning never have any headache or
'now a miserable moment.
