The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

Hold up your head up,
And every little while.
Brace up your back up.
And show you hav- somn style.

Pick up your feet up-
Don't drag them on the ground:
C:.%'er up your gait up-
Don't lolly-gag around.


Muddy Bottom, Fla., Dec. 31, 19"7.
T- To he Editor Ocala Banner:
U I have read the article in which it
Is stated that Governor Broward set
the example of setting aside the ac-
tabou of the primaries and executive
cjmittees whenever it suited his

pleasre and his purpose to do so, and
it ft asked if the governor's examiple-
In expected to absolve the ordinary
voter franm his primary pledges?
It occurs to n.e that if thi governor
caa do so without any compunction
of science, that. it it would not bet-
perfectly proper fur the ordinary voi-
er to do so. the governor and his par-
tUsans at least cannot blame them.
Their lips are sealed. Indeed, they
ought to applaud the ordinary voter
who will do so. and I suppose will do
so if the administration candidates
are turned down.
