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.

fBie years arW when I was in New

I-f a fencing academy opposite the

One evening, while in his '.,;.h;i:;v.

If I would like to t-.'* a -.r. :.:< e i.

perts. When I sail I oi. he' t,;,1l
me to be on hand at 7 in the iriin.i1.
giving as a reason for the ';uiy h',.r"
that the (contestant.s did not ca.'* to
fence before a crowd. When I Pn-
tered the hall a little before the h,,ur
appointed I saw the prii'ipa!s eincrzc
from a dressing room attired in fe.'--
Ing costume and each wearing a wire
mask. The fencing master turned to
me and said:
*In contests between strinlg men
sometimes the button will beL broken I
Off one of the foils. I wish you to 1eok
at these weapons that youi mway li- a ;
witness that they are In good condi-
tion at the start."
I examined the foils and found theiu
perfect. lie handed them to tiue prin-
cipals, and the contest I confess
I was disappointed. Neither seemed tol
take much interest in the struggle. and
It was an indifferent performance. I
wondered why I had been invited t)
witness it. Meanwhile the fencing
master went to another part of the
room, where suddenly he dropped
something which made a clatter, and I
turned my eyes In his direction. When
I turned them back to the fencers I
saw that they had suspended the con-
test One of them was standing in
position; the other was just stepping
Into position. Somehow I got the idea
that they had both stepped away from
their places.
When the fencing recomnieneIed each
man threw himself into his work as if
his life depended upon his efforts. la- ij
was supremely careful of his giiardi
and each watchful for sie n ,,,,nien i

General Beauichamp. a winter visit-

mobile trip to Jacksonville. He went
by way of Daytona and St. Augustine
and returned by the Srarke and Ocala
route. He reporr.s very good roads
nearly all the distance, if he had been
able to keep on the right road. but ht-
had numerous experiences ot getting
on the wrong road. and when he was
about to enter a certain town as he
supposed he found himself in another
to\ka, miles away. The general is an
Enh-lishmnian, and full of grit, so he
never gave up or got discouraged, but
drove ahead till he got on the right
road. He thinks if his experiences
were written up they would make a

An alarm of fire was sent in Friday
about twelve o'clock, which proved to
be the pineapple shed belonging to
Mr. A. E. Burnett, our worthy jewel-
er. who some time ago. had a very
fine pinery, but for some time has
about abandoned it. It was located
o'itside the fire limits, so it was im-
possible for the department to render
any aid. The shed being made of well
seasoned pine made a hot fire, and
the residences of Mr. Burnett and
Mrs. Mayo. directly across the street,
were threatened, but fortunately
were saved. Mr. Burnett's loss
amounted to about two hundred dol-

Suit Jackets
When a figure is shapely, the suit
jacket is closely fitted in the back
and the fronts are cut away. Other-
wise the back is semi-fitted, and the
fronts remain straight. Some are
quite long with the lower edge plain,
or others have slashings outlined by
braid which give a showy effect. A
short jacket is cut in scallops trim-
med by braid, with a band of colored
embroidery around the V neck, which
is almost universal on dressy jackets.
Vests in contrast impart a touch of
color, placed very low on the front,
and colored velvet collar and buttons
also give a brightening effect.

Writing to a New York paper, a
layman enumerated the views ad-
vanced by clergymen for the falling
off in church attendance, as follows:
Secular attractions.
Business cares.
Spread of agnosticism.
Lax training of youth.
Sectarian controversy.
Heresy trials.
Sunday newspapers.
Materialistics trend of education.
Immorality, public and private.
Development of new cults.
The said layman then proceeded to
submit some views from the lay atti-
tude as follows:
A change in clerical effectiveness.
A decline in spirituality.
Impious titles to sermons.
Abandonment of correct pulpit top-

Growth of Christian science.
Scarcity of good pastors.
Subserviency to material interests.
Morose disposition in preachers.-
