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.

On Wednesday afternoon Mrs. Lou-
is Duval, at her cozy little cottage on
Oklawaha avenue, entertained a num-
ber of her young friends for her niece,
Miss Lutie Mote Hansbrough, of Tam-
pa, who is her attractive guest, and
for Misses Frances Anderson, Betty
Wray Mclver and Annie Atkinson,
who are three of Ocala's lovely and
popular debutantes.
Mrs. Duval received her guests in
the library, and was a charming host-
ess, and looked unusually handsome
in a lovely white silk.
Miss Hansbrough, who is an ex-
ceedingly lovely girl, looked very
pretty in a dress of dark red cloth
with net trimmings and red shoes and
stockings. Miss Mclver in pink silk,
Miss Anderson in blue satin and Miss
Atkinson in white, and together they
formed a lovely group.
In the dining room, which had been
very tastefully decorated in mistletoe
and red hearts, Mrs. Albert .Birdsey
and Mrs. Harvey Clark served most
delicious punch. The punch table
was indeed lovely, the bowl being bur-
ied among the mistletoe and hearts.
Mrs. Mclver, Mrs. Sistrunk and Mrs.
Hocker also assisted Mrs. Duval in
giving her guests a good time.
The first form of amusement was a
progressive conversation test. Sub-
jects had been written on pretty little
valentines, which were passed to the
guests by little Elizabeth Hocker, the
pretty and winsome little daughter of
Mrs. Hocker. After all the subjects
had been thoroughly discussed, Mrs.
Duval, assisted by Misses Annie Da-
vis, Pauline Sullivan and Lillian Thag-
ard, passed most delightful cream,
cake, mints and almonds.
Another interesting feature was
shooting an arrow at hearts. Each
guest who shot a heart received a for-
tune, all of which were very original
ones, such as "The first cocoanut you
crack with your teeth will contain
a watch, and in the back of the watch
will be the picture of your future hus-
band;" and "You will be the first wo-
man legislator in Marion county, and
your first bill introduced will be to
prohibit men from speaking in public
except between the hours of 2 and 4
a. m.," and several other comic for-
Mrs. Duval's party was one of the
most enjoyable of the niany pretty
parties that have been given in Ocala
this season.
Mrs. Duval's guests besides the
lfonor guests were: Mises Jean Tea-
gue, Sara Davis, Helen Brown, Adele
Bitltinger, Nellie Gottlieb, Hope Robin-
son, Rhoda Liddon, Lucile Standley,

The fact that Mr. Parrott has been

enough that he is a great man.

mor consisting mostly of quotations
from the president's own iltterainces.
He threw hack at the president what
the president had said about other
pr sidents. Mr. Rainey's speech was
an entirely different production. He
presented grave charge against the
president, charges of graft, corrup-
t!on and misconduct in office. Why
are these charges permitted to re-
main, if untrue? And if true. they
place the president of the United
States in a most unenviable position.

ment that he saw 15,000 pounds of

selves to Mr. Parrott for twenty yeWa
or more, yet at every turn he has
said: "Get thee behind me, Satan,"
and has resolutely refused to be
tempted, and not one breath of suspi-
cion attaches to him.
Not only has Mr. Parrott shown ab-
solute clean hands in his handling
of this great wealth, but his position
has not puffed him up. Through it all
he has shown the same modesty and
simplicity with which he started out
in life. He is the same man today to
his old friends and acquaintances that
he was when he possessed no such
opportunities. The man in overalls is
the same to him as the man in full
evening dress. When going up and
down the line he has a warm hand-
shake and a pleasant word for every
employee he meets and makes famil-
iar inquiries as to themselves and
the various members of their families,
making their troubles a part of his
own. His universal popularity with
his employes shows in what esteem
he is held.
Mr. Parrott is an extremely modest
man. In all the marvelous work of
construction that has gone on under
his supervision, he always occupies a
place in the background. In military

DAY AND 1161


The automobile manufacturer are
and have a right to be proud. The

printed a little more than a decade

the automobile. The automobile man-

The actual use of the varied re-
sources of the government's 168,000,-
000 acres of national forest land is
on the increase, according to the re-
port of the work for the fiscal year
1908. The report says that from an
administrative standpoint the most
striking fact of the year was the re-
markable increase which took place
in the volume of business transacted.
This growth in business done by
the United States forest service last
year over the previous year is partly
brought out In the following statement
showing percentages of increase: In
the number of timber sales, 236 per
cent.; in the amount of timber cut un-
der sales. 102 per cent.; in the num-
ber of free timber permits, 76 per
cent.; in the number of grazing per-
mits, 11 per cent.; and in the number
of special use permits, 67 per cent.
That the additions to existing na-
tional forests and new creations caus-
ed this increase only to a small ex-
tent is shown by the fact that the
acre increased is only 11 per cent.
In speaking of this feature of the
work of the forest service in his an-
nual report, the secretary of agricul-
ture says in part:
"The growth in the volue of busi-
ness arising from use of the forests
has created a very serious adminis-
trative problem. Last year 78 per
cent. of the time of the administra-
tive and protective force was taken
up by the demands of national forest
business. The average forest area
to each officer supposedly available
for patrol duty was about 120,000
acres; but with more than three-
fourths of the time of these officers
occupied with timber sales, grazing
and other business, the force actual-
ly available for patrol was equivalent
to about one man to each 500,000
acres. That under these circumstanc-
es the fire losses in a year of excep-
tional danger were kept down to a
very small figure in comparison with
the value of the timber exposed and
the damage from forest fires else-
where is a matter of congratulation.
"The risk incurred, however, is out
of all proportion to the added cost
which more adequate protection would
involve. I am convinced that the pro-
vision made for the care and use of
the national forests has become inad-
equate to their needs, and I have
therefore submitted estimates for the
fiscal year 1910 which ask for a sub-
stantial increase in the appropriation.
With the further growth in business
which is certain to take place during
the present year. even less protection
can be given than has been given
in the past. Indeed, the point has
now nearly been reached at which it
is not even a choice between provid-
ing for the needs of those who would
use the forests and protecting the
forests themselves."

,During the editor's recent trip to
Key West he met a German gentle-
man, Mr. Johannes Klingbeil, of Ber-
lin, who said that he had not taken a
drink of water in over seventeen years
and he is still quite a young man. He
said that while families in Germany
live and die without knowing the
taste of water. That water is full of
typhoid fever and other gems, and is
fit only for bathing and culinary pur-
poses. He said he was very much
surprised in finding so much drunk-
enness in this country, and could not
but help comparing it with conditions
in his country, where wine and tleer
are as common a table article as eith-

gan his history of England. Often the
royal carriage was bogged up to the
hubs in mud and a delay of a day or
two on account of bad roads was not
an unusual incident.
Touring cars are now used in far-

Every citizen of Florida-of which
he is a winter resident-will deeply
sympathize with Editor Henry Wat-

nal in the bitter affliction which has
just taken from him another prized
member of his family. The bereave-
meart deprived us of Tampa of the
pleasure of hearing and greeting and
doing him honor as one of the dis-
tingushed guests of a distinguished
occasion. It will fall like a blow to
learn that Mr. Watterson announces
his permanent retirement from the
platform which be graces with an ear-
nestness and delicacy second to no
man. Let us hope that time may soft-
en the blow and that he will return to
the sphere in which he served the
people with so much zeal and so great
profit to the classes, which flock 'to
his instructions and ministrations.-

It makes a big difference whether
you are in or out. Former Governor
Broward was in Tampa at the open-

opened the fair by touching the but-

We find the greater part of the
fences around the farm badly rotted
and almost in a worthless condition,
which causes a considerable annoy-
ance in the matter of excluding out-
side stock from the plantation.
During the month six hogs have
been slaughtered and approximately
eight acres of oats planted.
Thus far fifteen acres of land has
been rented at $1.50 per acre, rent to
be paid before crop is gathered.

\Ve note the drolping of a tear.

Ilumanity is a thing of wonder.
And the days and years still fly;

Hy some sacred human tie.
We are bound in ignorant bondage,
But we read: "The truth shall make you free!"
Then surely this means deliverance
From darkness for you and me.

Our minds endeavor to penetrate the reason
Of heart-throbs and human pain;
Yet our thoughts become like vapor.
And our efforts seem in vain.
We toil and live and struggle
For the cause that's right and just;
Only for defeat to conquer
And grind success to dust.

And poverty-stricken through life they go;
Finding but few blossoms of comfort,
And die in want and woe.

For His love is o'er you shining-
Some day you will see His face.
Oh(, hearts, 'then cease to worry!
And give your souls sweet rest;
For you are safe in the arms of Jesus
As a babe on its mother's breast.



The jig saw puzzle craze, that has
taken the north and east by storm,
and that is now becoming quite a
craze in the south, has reached Ocala,
and in this novel and thoroughly de-
lightful manner Mrs. George R Mc-
Kean entertained a few of her
friends on Sattrday afternoon. There:
were three tables, four ladis beingi
seated at each table and each one
having a different jig saw puzzle to
put tog-tAer. It was the first time
that some of the ladies had ever seen
these puzzles and they proved to be
an intensely interesting mode of en-
tertainment, as there is something
truly fascinating in putting together
these queer little puzzles. There was
a picture of Silver Springs. one of the
Methodist church, one of the Baptist
and other local points, each of the
\\ Iv h puzzless being different.
MIrs. McKvan was assisted by Mrs.

Saturday afternoons are always ex-

bers of the Young Ladies' Card Club,
as on that afternoon they have tfeir
regular weekly meeting, and spend
two hours together very happily. This
Saturday afternoon Mrs. Sandf3rd
Jewett entertained and did so ( ust
charmingly. Her little cottage on
Orange avenue is very attractive and
accommodated her guests splendidly.
There were four tables of the mem-
bers (all of the members but one be-
ing present), and one table of visit-
ors playing, and the games of whist
were most interesting ones, and re-
suited favorably for Miss Margaret

Says John D. Rockefeller in an Arti-
cle in World's Work
John D. Rockefeller, in his last ar-
ticle appearing in tne Wofld's Work
today, declares -that it is difficult to
get rich. He illustrates his arguments
with his own early experience. The
author rebukes Ida Tarbell, when he
defends the memory of his father.
whom she pictures as a close-dealing,
nomadic horse dealer.. "I owe a great
deal to the way he trained me," says
Mr. Rockefeller. With the first mon-
ey he earned he attended a high
school and secured a commercial edu-
cation. He resigned his first job to
go into business for himself on bor-
rowed money.


The completion of the Atlanta. Bir-,
minghanm and Atlantic railroad be-
tween Tampa and Thomasville is be-!
in- rushed ahead. The work has been
finished within a few miles from Ot-1
ter Creek. Fla.. and will be ready for
the laying of rails in a short time.

the country. These will be used at
the forthcoming conference.
President Roosevelt feels that the
connection between the 'United
States and the two nations which lie
to the north and south is so intimate
that they can consider their mutual

interests with regard

to natural re-

sources from the standpoint of the
general welfare of the continent with
small regard to the political boundary
lines which separate them. Indeed,
it is said that he considered inviting
Canada and Mexico to the first conser-
vation conference, but refrained be-
cause he was unwilling to run the re-
mottst risk of asking these two na-
tions to associate themselves with
the conservation movement before he
was certain that it was going to suc-
ceed. Now that success is assured he
feels that since the two nations lave
identical interests and identical aspi-
rations they can work together along
conservation lines jjst as the repre-
sentatives of th, states work together
without regard to state boundaries.


A late special from Washington
says that by far the largest specific
allowance of reparation ever ordered
by the interstate commerce commis-
sion was made when that body
approved a settlement 'agreement of
! $l;35. 0u in satisfaction of the claims
on account of unreasonable rates on
lumber shipped from southern mills,
involving about 125 cases and eleven
different railroads of 'the south. These
are said to be one-third of the claims
of the same kind pending before the
commission. They involved the two-
cent difference per 100 pounds be-
tween the advanced rates, made ef-
fective in the summer of 1903, and
those in effect for a number of years
prior thereto on shipments that mov-
ed between the time of the advance
and the summer of 1900, when after
the final decision of the United States
supreme court sustaining the decis-
ions of the commission after a course
of appeals the low rates were restor-

The settlement agreement- was
reached between the petitioners and

the commission's approval is with the

Tl i. intrnal-aiial conference will
in,',i at th- W\hi' Hoiire- by President
Roosevelt's invitation. It will not be
a large -a;hering as was the confer-
ence of go;etrnor-s at the White House
last May. or the joint conservation
conference last December between the
national conservation commission, tfe
governors and the representatives of
state conservation commissions and
conservation committees of national
organizations. The attendance will be
limited to the representatives of Can-
ada and Mexico and representatives
of the state department of the United
States government and of other ex-
ecutive departments which can render
particular assistance to the conferees
in their deliberations, and the nation-
al conservation commission.
Canada has already taken active
steps in preparation for the confer-
ence and recently sent to the national
conservation commission a number of
carefully prepared maps which show
the present status of the public lands
of the dominion as well as the dis-
tribution of the principal natural re-
sources and the development of the
transportation systems. The Canad-
ian authorities have also gathered to-
gether and sent to the chairman of
the commission a comprehensive col-
lection of government documents
bearing on the natural resources of

a profitable gathering.
Let every school be represented and
let us give the work a renewed impe-
tus. Elect delegates at once and send
names to Mr. Lee McDonald, Tampa,
Fla. Delegates should take receipt
from railroad agent for money paid for
ticket in order to secure any discount
on return trip that may be allowed.
Pray for the convention! Work for
the convention! Attend the conven-
tion! Yours fraternally,
P. M. ULSCH, Pres.

Among America's great newspaper
men there are none more highly re-
spected, anr' certainly none who can
make eloquence flow more freely
from the pen than Col. Henry Watter-
son, editor of the Courier-Journal of
Louisville, Ky. In all national affairs
his opinion is looked forward to by
the greatest of our statesmen, and
what he says carries weight to the
highest in power.
It is with great pleasure that Fort
Myers has the honor of entertaining
this distinguished Kentuckian and his
wife, who were guests of the Royal
Palm Sunday and Monday. During
the past few weeks Colonel and Mrs.
Watterson have been called upon to
mourn the loss of a beloved son.

The immense paper factory which
is proposed for Gainesville is assum-
ing nature of the real thing, as a site
has been selected by two expert engd-
neers of Boston. who have been look-
ing over the situation for the past two
weeks. The ,ire will be located in the
northern section of the city, directly
between the tracks of the Atlantic
Coast Line and the Tampa and Jack-
sonville railway. The material to be
employed in the manufacture of paper
at this plant will be the stumps of dis-
mantled pines. This will be. when
completed, one of the largest paper
mills in the United States. It is said
that the plant, buildings, etc., will cost
in the neighborhood of $2,000,000, and
the industry will employ a large num-
ber of hands. The enterprise is being
financed by the promoter, C. W. Chase
of Gainesville. and eastern and Eng-
lish capitalists. The manufacture at
paper from the pine stump is no ex-
periment, but an actual realization, as
those interested have made numerous
experiments that have fully resulted
in producing a strong, perfect paper oa
several grades. It is claimed that the
paper made from pine is superior ln
many instances to the product from
any other fiber material.-Live Oak


Florida has been receiving a great
volume of advertising this winter in
the various magazines and metropoli-

this state in glowing colors have been

Judge Hart of Tennessee made a
ruling last week that is of interest.
He ruled that unless the prospective
juror insisted that he could not ren-
der a fair verdict, even after hearing
the testimony, Judge Hart held that
he was a competent juror, and com-
pelled either the state or defense to
exercise their right of peremptory
challenge. The judge declared that
whether or not a man had an opinion
in the case, if he swore he could lay
it aside and render a verdict on the
evidence, he was a competent juror.-

The Times-Union and all other

were born and reared where they

must be so informed by long associa-

will begin on Washington's birthday
and will continue two days.

so deeply stirred, as when Carmack
bowed sad sat down that day. There
were too many tears for riot.
I know I shai be pardoned for in-
scribing it here:
"The south is a land that has known
sorrows; It is the land that has trok-
en the ashen crust and moistened it
with its tears; a land scarred and
riven by the plowshare of war and
billowed with the graves of her dead;
but a land of legend, a land of song,
a land of hallowed and heroic mem-
ories. To that land every drop of my
blood, every fibre of my being, every
pulsation of my heart is consecrated
for ever. I was born of her womb;
I was nurtured at her breast, and
when-my last hour shall come I pray
God I may be pillowed upon her bos-
om and rocked to sleep within her
tender and encircling arms."
I have one suggestion to make, one
prayer to offer-that every southern
mother teach her child, the pride of
her home and the hope of her land, to
repeat that matchless passage. Plant
it in his memory when it is young and
plastic. It cannot but lead him to

state institutions yesterday made pro-
vision for two notable improvements
in the medical service at the Florida
hospital for the insane at Chattahoo-
Dr. James H. Randolph, the newly
elected chief physician of the hospital,
was present to confer with the board
as to the needs of that department,
and it was developed that the doctor
has conceived a very high standard
for his staff to attain and that the
board will do all in its power to
bring the medical service of that in-
stitution up to the highest efficiency.
The board resolved that after April
1, 1909, when Dr. Randolph will as-
sume his new position, there shall be
employed at the hospital for the in-
sane, in addition to the chief physi-
cian and his assistant, two clinical
assistants, who shall be graduates of
'reputable medical schools and whose
compensation shall be $30 per month
and board. These clinical assistants.
who will be selected with the utmost
care. will be always under the su-
pervision and direction of the regular
physicians, and are expected to add
greatly to the care and attention giv-
en to patients. The assistants, on
the other hand, will receive experience
of great value for their professional
careers, and it is believed the posi-
tions will be sought by the most com-
petent medical graduates.
The board also provided that after
April 1st there shall be appointed a
visiting staff for the Florida hospital
for tae insane, to consist of not more
than Feven reputable Florida physi-
cians, each of whom hall be a special-
ist in the particular field for which
he is appointed. t is proposed that
on the visiting staff there shall be at
least one member eminent in surgery,
one a specialist in diseases of the eye,
ear. nose and throat, one gyneologist,
one genito-urinary specialist, etc. For
this staff the board wants none but
the best doctors who can be had. Con-
stant effort will be made to keep the
standard so high that membership on
this staff will be considered a signal

primary law. the law which we pro-
foss is the fundamental law of this
SAmerican republic-to do unto others
as we would be done by."-Chicago
