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.

had ch; :-ge of the evening service,
and rendered a most interesting and
instructive program.
Mr. L. F. Ballard made a splendid
talk and the main speech of the even-
ing was that of Mrs. E. Van Hood,
who talked most interestingly and
feelingly of the prohibition amendment
bill that was carried by the legislature
last week. Mrs. Hood was at the cap-
ital when the bill was passed, and as
:-he is a ready speaker and does not for words, her remarks were is-
I n,'d to with a great deal of pleas-

An attractive musical program, in-
Aluding a song by the Baracca quar-
tet and a solo by Mrs. W. J. Sheridan
was rendered, and Mrs. William Gotn
read a beautiful missionary story.
. At the meeting of the society next
Sunday night delegates will be chosen
to repreesnt the Ocala union at the
state convention.

At both the morning and the even-
Ing services at the Methodist church
Sunday the pulpit was occupied by
visiting ministers.
In the morning Rev. E. J. Gates, who
Is a brother-in-law of Miss Wartmann
of this city, preached. Mr. Gates was
here especially in the interest of the
Sunday school work of which he has
charge. His discourse Sunday morn-

to be left in the yard. He attempted
to jump from the caboose to a flat car
ahead, but sized the distance too short
and fMll between the cars, the truck
passing over his body. A nubmer saw
the young man fall, and the brakes
were put on at once. and several train-
men ran to his assistance, but he -was
dragged several feet before he was
rescued, and how he escaped ocing

miracle. His arm was broken, his

all over the body. but it is not thought
that he received any internal hurt.

their voices were most harmonious.
The male members of the orchestra
wore the band uniforms, and the en-
tire group was a most striking one.
The solos were splendid and were
perfectly rendered, and nearly every
soloist was obliged to respond to an
encore. Mr. Thomas G. Hall's bari-
tone solo, "A Son of the Desert Am I,'
was magnificent. He sang his song
in coistumoe and his exquisite voice

Emol doom i&i The home minstrel given last night
*p'm-t --i e ROYAL ib at the Armory theater for the benefit
S- pin l iCr of the band and the Ocala baseball
team, was a tremendous success. A
large crowd greeted these amateur
performers, and no minstrel ever giv-

panies or home talent, was better or
4 V more enjoyable.
SThe stage settings were very pretty
Sand the opening overture by the en-

voice, and they had been splendidly

The children of the primary school
held their May Day exercises Friday
morning from 11 to 12 o'clock at the
school house, and nearly forty visit-
ors were present to enjoy the festivi-
ties with the children.
Every month the children have a
different nature study and an ethical
subject. This month their nature
subject has been birds and flowers
and their ethical subject, kindness, so
the exercises Friday morning related
entirely to these subjects.
The exercises were held down stairs,
the two lower rooms being made into
one by opening the large folding doors
between. All of the blackboards were
very prettily decorated with birds and
flowers, drawn by the children, and at
the top of the boards were borders of
birds and butterflies of many sizes
and colors, which had been cut out
and applied to the walls. There ivere
also several cages of live canaries
and a big parrot, and quantities of
lovely flowers. In this manner the
nature studies are made most attract-
ive to the children and many practi-

From Friday's Daily:
The Marion County Hospital Asso-
ciation held a meeting yesterday af-
ternoon in the office of Mr. George
MacKay. Mr. D. S. Woodrow is pres-
ident of the association and Mr. T T.
3Iunroe secretary, and they met yes-
terday to examine the :ians and speci-
fications submitted by Mr. MacKay
and the same were accepted.
The hospital will be built on the
lot owned by the association and
which is located in front of Col. J.
M. Martin's residence. The lot is
330x310 feet and is a very beautiful
lot. The new building will be a very
handsome one, and is to cost $8000.
The plans are for a two-story building
with pavilion wings. Thre will be
wards for both white and colored pa-
tients, and an operating room, with
skylight and all necessary conven-
iences. The building will be arrang-
ed so that additional pavilions can be
easily built when necessary.
Mr. Woodrow informs us that he
will soon have a fine.crt of the hospi-
tal as it will look when completed,
which we hope to publish at a later
A good deal of the lumber and oth-
er building material for the hospital
has already been donated and more
has been promised, and there are also
a large number of subscriptions, and
we know that our public spirited cit-
izens will give very liberally for this
necessary institution.
A good suggestion comes from one
interested in the hospital that each
lodge of the city will furnish one of
the wards, and the same thing might
be done by any other of our charita-
ble organizations.
This paper is delighted to know
that our hospital is now an assured
fact, and congratulates the associa-
tion on the good work they have done.

The Journal dislikes to see Jack-
sonville get ahead of Pensacola in its
provisions for the safety and health
of citizens. But the following clip-
ped from the Metropolis of :ha; .ty
indicates that measures ar< oein- ta-
ken in ite Gate City which'are well
worth copying:
"The board of health of the city
yesterday and today notified all deal-
ers in meats and fruits that they will
be expected to keep their wares cov-
ered with a cheesecloth the coming
summer, to keep out the dust and
flies. All fruits are not to be cover-
ed, but such things as berries, from
which the outer skin is not removed
before serving, will be required to
be protected. Some of the meat mar-
kets of the city are well equipped
with protection from the flies by
screen doors and fans, but others are
not. Some dealers are in the habit
of hanging a part of their meats in
front of their stores for display to the
public, but they will be required to
keep all meat inside from the pres-
ent time."
The screen at least provides a pro-
tection against the swarm of infec-
'tious insects which a municipality al-
lows to infest every inch, of space,
without an attempt toward preven-
tion. The owners of shops where
foods are sold may think it a hard-

measures; but the public health must
be the first consideration. Pensaco-
la's authorities would do well to fol-
low Jacksonville's good example. But
they should go further, and inaug-
urate a great warfare against the

after all, only a necessary refuge from

Less than fifty years ago other
strawberries than those growing wild
were almost unknown in this country.
There were a few of the cultivated va-
rieties to be found in the markets of
he larger cities as a luxury within
reach of 'the wealthy only. and here
dnd there some gardener or farmer,
nore progressive than his neighbors,
adl a small patch for private use. To-
lay the growing of the best varieties
of the luscious fruit has reached pro-
portions undreamed of a few years
igo. Strawberries are grown for the
market with fair success in almost
ill parts of the country, but the ear-
ier supply comes, of course, from the
states in the south-west.-Manchester

A woman who is sick and suffering, and won't at lead
try a medicine which has the record of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, is to blame for her own wretched

There are literally hundreds of thousands of women in
the United States who have been benefited by this famous
old remedy, which was produced froin roots and herbs over
thirty years ago by a woman to relieve woman's suffering.

Read what these women say:
Camden, N. J. It is with pleasure that I mad my testim
nial for Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, hoping IM
may induce other suffering women to avail themselves of t-
bnefit of this valuable remedy.
"I suffered from pains in my back and side, sick hda-deNi
no appetite. was tired and nervous all the time, and so weak
could hardly stand. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compom-1
made me a well woman-and this valuable medicine -
always have my praise."--Mrs. W. P. Valentine, 902 Lincem
Ave, Camden, N. J.
Erie, Pa. -"J suffered for five years from female troubles, aa
at last was almost helpless. I tried three doctors but they dil
me no ood. My sister advised me to try Lydia E. Pikham's
Vegetable Compound, and it has made me well and strong. I
hope all suffering women will Just give Lydia F, Pintkham
Vegetable Compound a trial, for it is worth it weight in goll
-Mrs. J. P. Endlich, R. F. D. 7, Erie, Pa.

Since we guarantee that all testimonials which we pub-
lish are genuine, is it not fair to suppose that if Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound had the virtue to help
these women it will help any other woman who is suffer-
ing from the same trouble.

For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for
female ills. No sick woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
has thousands of cures to its credit.
SIf the slightest trouble appears which
you do not understand, write to Mrs.
Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., for her advice-- it s
free and always helpful.

Summer Fertilizing

Citrus Trees
This is a very important application, for a liberal supply of
food at this time increases the size of the fruit and gives a large
bearing surface for next year's crop. You cannot afford to econo-
mize i?o on fertilizer. Neither should you delay about applying
it. Nature calls for help in may and this is the time when fer-
tilizer will do the trees the most good. Later applications prolong
the growth, and therefore the maturing of the fruit, thus making
the crop late and sapping the vitality of the tree. We have Fruit
and Vine formulas to meet every condition of soil. Write to us
about them and ask for our booklet, "Good Old Summer Time In
the Orange Groves."

good service.
A log school house was never large.
Its walls were not much higher than
a man's head; it was hard To slide
the squared logs up the steep skids to

or with rived "shakes." The spoces
between the logs were plastered and
whitewashed. In spite of its appar-
ent solidity a log school house did not
last long.
A hot fire roared in the sheet-iron
stove within. The desks and seats
were made of planks or of split tree-
trunks set flat-side up on straddling
legs inserted in auger-holes. In the
evenings, for singing school, lyceum
or political meeting, the people

And yet, of the great men of Amer-
ican history, how many got their first
lessons in log school houses? Perhaps
nearly half. Many was the young

rude 'surroundings that later taught
the senate or the supreme court to
respect it. Generals, senators, govern-
ors, presidents, have served as teach-

formation gained, character developed
and ideas inspired-were never unat-
tainable in the rudest of log school
houses. To their fading memory

But many gleams and shadows need
must pass
Along the burning gras,
And weeks go by, before the enamored
Shall kiss the rose's mouth.
Still, there's a sense of blossoms yet
In the sweet airs of morn;
One almost looks to see the very street
Grow purple at his feet.
At times a fragrant breeze comes float-

And brings, you know not why,
A feeling as when eager crowds await
Before a palace gate.
Some wondrous pageant; and you

If from a beech's heart
A blue-eyed Dryad, stepping forth
should say:

The government has undertaken a
study to determine the proper method
of seasoning eucalyptus poles, partic-
ularly those cut from trees which, ow-
ing to a large number of knots, will not
make clear lumber. Some poles have
shown a tendency to check and warp
after being cut, probably due to im-

proper methods of seasoning,


has been a great obstacle to their
more extensive utilization.
Experiments will be carried on by
the United States forest service to de-
termine the method of seasoning which
will prevent this checking and warp-
ing. One series will be conducted on
the Sutro estate, which is in the fog
belt. and another on the Pacific Land
Investment Company's holdings at
Newark, which is out of the fog belt.
Forty-eight growing trees, 13 inch-
es in diameter and having a clear
length of 34 feet, will be selected and
marked by an officer of the forest ser-
vice. These two groups will be hand-
led in the same way. 12 trees of each
group are to be girdled and allowed to
die and season standing, with the bark
on. and the other 12 will be felled and
laid on skills in the open. and seasoned
in this manner. Six of the 12 felled
trees olf eah gr'iup will be peeled. and
the (porl.

good standing, and one additional del-
egate for a fraction of ten or more
members, provided that every camp in
good standing is entitled to at least
two delegates. The commanders of
camps have authority to appoint del-
egates when their camps fail to elect
same. As soon as delegates are elect-
ed, the adjutants of camps will at
once report their names and those of
alternates to the adjutant general at
6th. The commanders and adjutants
of camps are reminded that their an-
nual reports to the adjutant, Lieut.
Col. W. L. Ditto, at Ocala, Fla, were
due March 15, 1909, most of which
have not been received. Command-
ers of camps and their adjutants are
reminded that these reports are con-
stitutional requirements, and they are
hereby required to see to it that said
reports not heretofore sent in, are
prepared and sent in at once, together
with the annual dues of five cents
per capital for each member, so as to
enable him to use them in preparing
his annual report to the brigade for
this meeting. In these reports the
names of the commander and adju-
tant, their postoffice address, the date
of regular meetings, and whole hum-
ber of members, the changes ot mem-
bership during the year with the
.ames of those who have died should
be included. also all matters of gen-
eral interest relating to the camp that
have occurred during the year.
Application will be made for the
usual rate of one cent per mile each

The Journal is glad to see that the
Tampa Tribune has entered the lists
to support the demand, now ir" .ruing
general throughout the state, for a
convention to revise, reconstruct and
perfect the constitution. The Trib-
une's recent editorial on the subject
is a good argument when it comes
down to figures, and it is one of the
fundamental beliefs of the world that
"figures cannot lie." This is what our
Tampa contemporary has to say:
"Flolrda will continue to be harassed
by constitutional amendments until it
calls a convention and proceeds to
provide itself with a new constitution
-one in some degree commensurate
with the present needs and demands
of the state. The present constitution
of Florida was adopted in 1885-24
year sago. That constitution took the
place of one adopted in 1868, which

iwas outgrown in s\'eventeen years. If
the constitution of 186.S was found in-
adequate and unsuitable alter seven-
te en years, at the very slow rate at
growth which obtained in Florida d i-
ing that period, the present con. itu-
tion. with the state growing t* it has
in the past twenty year* was out-
grown years ag;o. Tfl- surest proof
that the consttilitiot 'jeeds revising as
a whole Is furnished by the frequen-
cy of constitutional amendments. As
a general thing the people vote down
these amendments, because they are
opposed to tinkering with or attempt-
ing to patch up a document that has
long outlived its usefulness. Let the
whole job be done at once and avoid
this constant annoyance."
Every word of the foregoing is true.
And there should be no delay in call-
ing the convention. Above all, when
called, let only thore be chosen as del-
egates who will be the most competent
to handle so important a matter, both

because o their natural Intelligence
and r'dtuation in government prince
Sl'-s. With the best constitutional
'%,)rk of the centuries b.fore. it. Fl'r-
ida is in a position to s-ecuro- th. imi-t
effective set of basic laws ever ad'l.,tt-
4*d by a state.-Pensacola Journal.
