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.

    yond controversy.
    But since he successfully appealed
    to the primary four years ago. the pri-
    mary and its obligations have not
    seemed to Broward so binding and sa-
    cred as they did before that primary.
    He has been a notorious violator of
    the great party principle since he has
    been in a position to make appoint-
    He has not waited for primaries to
    select officers in some cases; in oth-
    ers he has not appointed those select-
    ed by the primaries, even after he
    had given personal pledges that be
    would do so.
    He has paid no attention to the re-
    commendations of the executive com-
    mittee, elected in primaries to carry
    out the will of democrats, and has ut-
    terly disregarded every restraint of
    the party platform on the subject of
    party primaries.
    Now just observe the course of
    The most conspicuous adherent of
    the primary, and greatest stickler for
    its mandates and the most strenuous
    supporter of its sanctity from now on.
    will be that same Broward.
    The reason for it is plain, very
    plain. He now wants to serve the
    "great hearted people of Florida" in
    the United States senate; that is, he
    wants the office.
    United States senators are, by the
    constitution of the United States.
    elected by the legislatures of the va-
    rious states of the union.
    The democrats of Florida require
    every member of the legislature pre-
    vious to his nomination for the office.
    to pledge himself to vote for the can-
    didate for United States senator who
    has been designated as the candidate
    of the party by a majority vote of the
    democrats in a state primary.
    If Broward should receive a major-
    ity of the votes cast in the primary he
    would confidently expect that every
    democratic vote in the legislaTre
    would be cast for him for the coveted
    Hence. Broward. from now on. will
    be a strict believer in the salctity o'
    the primary.
    He evidently expects to find the
    members of the next legislature men
    who have a higher regard for their
    obligations to the party and their
    written and spoken pledges than he
    ha sbeen.-Miami News-Record.

    Tom Watson's Pretty Story of This
    Pathetic Scene in the Life of the
    jGreat Military Hero

    Thomas E Watson. in his life of
    Napoleon, tells the following story of
    the divorce of Josephine:
    Napoleon would not go to Spain, he
    j would not settle his differences with
    the Pope, but hlie made up his mind to
    bring to an issue another long defer-
    red and vitally important matter-that
    of divorcing Josephine.
    The emperor must have an heir. the
    question of succession must not be left
    open longer: political necessity was in
    exorable: ambition would tolerate no
    Great as a man may become., he is
    human after all and Nap)oleon flinched
    from saying the fateful word to Jos-
    ephine. from time to time he sh-rank
    from the pitiful task. and the way in
    which he led up to it is full of the
    pathos which sometimes lies in small
    things. Whenever Napoleon was at
    home it was a custom for a page to
    brlig in coffee for the emperor after
    innllller. Every day Josep)hine herself
    would take the tray. pour the coffee.
    sweeten it. cool it. taste it, and hand
    it to Napoleon. Years had come and
    gone. and e holit .l domestic custom
    vicl, bi*ecmie a-; t x' d as the relation of
    itlaIt and wil"'.
    At length came the day of days for
    them both. the dismal evening upon
    which Napoleon had resolved to speak
    He was gloomy. and sad: she was red-
    eyved with weeping, wretched, await-
    ing the word -.h-e dreaded andl eXpe,-
    ed. Dinner was served. )bult leit her
    ate,. neither spoke.
    The emperor rose from the table.
    she followed "with slow steps, her
    handkerchief over her mouth, as if to
    strifle her sobs." The page came is
    with the coffee, offering th etray to
    ihe Empress. as she, had always done.

    The ex-Empress humiliation was
    softened in every- manner possible.
    She was regally indorsed with pen-
    sions and estates: she was treated
    with the moss delicate respect: the
    friendship between herself and Napo-

    lighted to do her honor, and her place
    in the empire remained one of dignity
    and grandeur.
    Once the Emperor. returning from
    the chase with tb. kings of Bavaria,
    Baden and Wurtemburg. stopped at
    Malmaison to pay the ex-Empress a
    visit, and spent an hour in the chateau
    with her while the three little kings
    waited and lunched at her gate.

    there are a good many more than
    ten thousand wild horses in Nova

    The part of the Reno telegr,
    which is not true is that relating

    Ndether the forest rangers nor a
    other employees of the govern,
    have been told to destroy the hours

    |Wr rU-A fw days aWo I wrote
    9ftI Nw Is gaff of the mudis-
    | orf sur late laested friend a"d
    snoorH OI&o W. J. fDry=. Six
    I time, a you ow, he died as
    A rnmit of typho d fever, from
    hmtuh he was aem snuering.
    r Ms ktxms and many of his
    *=& and mine have requested that
    1 1 cmme a candidate in his place for
    Isted States senator before the dem-
    cratic primaries soon to be held. I
    have concluded to do so, and I there-
    Me now ask you to support me. It
    my seem harsh to receive a letter
    tam me making this request so soon
    aft the death of our friend, Senator
    ryan, but It is only about a month
    md a half before the primaries, and
    9 I am to be nominated it is neces-
    wT that speedy work be done.
    I asmure you that if nominated and
    toeted to the United States senate I
    Wl do all that I am cabaple of for
    Ike benelt of the people of Florida.
    md of the country at large.
    It may be well here to render you
    a account of my stewardship as gov-
    I promised, when a candidate for
    or governor, to veto any bill repeal-
    In or weakening the primary elec-
    So law and the railroad commission
    Jaw. These laws are still on the stat-
    eb hooks, and I vetoed two measures
    Intlga to weaken the primary law
    and have approved several strength-
    miag the railroad commission law,
    eme of them being in direct line
    with my recommendations as govern-

    I promised to employ every means
    Is my power to save and reclaim the
    pbbc domain for you. I, as trustee
    f the L L fund, together with the oth-
    Or trustees, have done everything in
    mY power to accomplish this end. We
    bave defended through the courts the
    toatl" brought by the railroads
    d their successors under the legis-
    btlve land grants, and have recently
    effected a couprumuise by which these
    ekain. covering all the remaining
    ublic land, were assigned to the
    sate beard of education, thus saving
    to the people approximately 2,250,000
    acres of land. an area larger than
    the states of Rhode Island and Dela-
    ware combined, and $90.000, which
    lbad, when drained, will be worth
    may millions of dollars. We are
    Jow selling reclaimed land near the
    eCnals at from $15 to $20 per acre,
    Several hundred acres of the reclaim-
    4d Japd being now under cultivation
    and bearing heavy crops.
