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.

from $O0.00) to $1(4L.00 each. These lots are
near the manufacturing center of the city, and are
bound to be valuable in the near future.
Farming Lands
I have 160 acres of land N. E. of Ocala, one
mile from the courthouse running east of the Antho-
ny hard road; adjoining the famous Johnson &
Liddon watermelon farm. This land is well
adapted to the cultivation of watermelon, cantaloupe
and other truck, and well located; the S. A. L. R.
R., running through the property. This land is lo-
cated within a mile of any other town, the size of
Ocala, iu the Southe:n States except Florida.
would be worth $100.00 per acre. I am offering it
at the very low price of
$15.00 per acre.
500-Acre Proposition
I also have 500 acres laying west of the Antho-
ny hard road, and embracing the Kendrick hard
road, one mile from town, well timbered with oak
and second growth pine. It will now cut $10.00
worth of oak wood per acre. There are 15000
small pine trees on this land which are now worth
10cts. each for turpentine. This timber is grow-
ing at the rate of $2.00 or more per acre every year.
As an investment there is nothing better than this
land at $20.00 an acre. much of it will be sold for
town lots in a few years.

What came near being a disastrous
fire occurred in the Montezuma barber
shop Tuesday morning. Mr. Brooks,
manager of the shop, had just had the
oil stove lighted, when for some cause
it exploded. He tried desperately to
subdue the flames, but was unsuc-
cessful. The alarm was immediately
turned in, and the fire company made
a quick response, and had its aid not
been so timely our great conflagration
of twenty-six years ago would have
been repeated.
As soon as the stove exploded the
oil caught ablaze, and made a volume
of smoke equal to that of a locomo-
tive engine, and it not only filled the
shop but the entire hotel, and the
guests thinking that the building was
on fire made hasty exits from their
sleeping apartments.
The entire contentens of the shop

Ex-Governor Vardaman of Mississ-

a guest of the Ocala House. He was
here to attend the marriage of Mr.
Greenwood Haley and Miss Anne Mix-

handsome man and his features de-
note great strength of character. His
hair is long and very black, and his
face is clean shaven. Hlie is a pleas-
ant and interesting talker, his man-
ners are naturally easy, but one im-
mediately concludes that he has stud-
ied the life of Lord Chesterfield to ad-

"propie to establish cocaine and
opium joints in Ocala or elsewhere

against the undertaking. No China

a poison than alcohol. The difference
is that cocaine and morphine deaden

Again, scientific investigation and
the clinical thermometer have de-
stroyed all the old ideas in regard to
the good of alcohol in medicine and
otherwise. For instance, It has been
thought a stimulant which would pro-
duce animal heat and would warm the
human body. It has been found by
applying a clinical thermometer that
the temperature of a drunken man is
lowered. The alcohol sends the blood
shing to the surface, but the real
temperature is not increased. For
this reason alcohol is not used by arc-
tic explorers. For the same reason
physicians are abolishing it in their
practice, and are using other things
less harmful and of more value.
Again, as to the action of alcohol
upon the blood. The blood is com-
posed of white and red corpuscles, the
matter the life sustaining element,
while the white corpuscles are the die
ease resisting power. It has been
found that alcohol destroys these
white corpuscles. See for yourself
the purple nose of the habitulI drink-
er. Let the source of defense, our
army and our navy, our forts and our
arsenals be destroyed, how easy it
would be for some foreign power to
come over and take possession of our
rich and fertile country. Let alcohol
destroy or impair these white corpus-
clehs the germ resisting element in
the blood, and something Awill happen.

The objects for prayer in December,
given by the Christian Endeavor
World, are:
1. Pray that the thought of Christ
coming to earth may lead to a grow-
ing spirit of peace and good will and
renewed consecration to his service.
2. Pray for those to whom the holi-
day season brings added toil or a re-
minder of loss.
3. Pray for the meetings on mis-
sionary ground to be attended by Dr.
Clark and Mr. Shaw as they return
from the Agra conventions, and for
the Christian Endeavorers in those
4. Pray for congress that it may
follow God's guidance in framing just
and wise laws. Let us not overlook or
forget these suggestions for our indi-
vidual quiet hours.
It is a good offer now given where-
by the Christian Endeavor World, us-

for $1 all of 1910. This can be done
by filling out a 1911 campaign offer
coupon. Send to Interlachen for these
coupons. No premiums are given
with this reduced subscription price
and the offer is only good for new sub-
scribers, of which we need many more

(Edited by Mrs. Powers and Miss

At the International Congress of
Tuberculosis, Prof. Fisher boldly an-
nounced that tuberculosis costs the
people of the United States over a
billion dollars a yar. He said:
"The disease picks out the young
men and the young women, at the
very beginning of the limte when they
are able to earn money. From then
on the lowest cost of doctor's bills.
medicines, nurses' fees, and loss of
earnings before death occurs is $21ft
in each case, while the earning power
which. might have been saved brings
the total cost up to $siO0o>. .Multiply
this by I ~so. deaths a year. It
brings the total up to more than a bil-
lion dollars."
Let us apply test, figures to Flor-
ida conditions. In Key West. in 1 tG,
there were 22 deaths from tuberculo-
sis. The population was 221.11,I, or
one death per thousand people. That
is a very low death rate from tubercu-
losis. The rate for Jacksonville last
year was over 2.5 per thousand. But
to be conservative we will suppose
that the rate for the entire state is no
greater than the rate for Key West.
That would give us about soni deaths
from tuberculosis annually in Florida.
Now multiply that by Prof. Fisher's
figure. i.e., $si iot per case'. and we will
see that we pay directly and indlirect-
ly about six million four hundred
thousand dollars annual tribute to tu-
"Consumption may be cured if ta-
k(-n in time, but usually not otherwise.
If you suspect that you have con-
sumption-if you have a slight couzih
that hangs on-if you are gradually
losing weight-if you are beginning to
feel tired all the time-if you have a
slight fever in the afternoon, go at
once to your family physician, or if
you are not able to do that, go at once
to the dispensary, so as to make sure
whether you have consumption or
not. Don't waste time on consumlp-
tion cures-they only waste your
money and your time.
"Consumption is cured. if taken in
time, by these three things: Fresh
air, rest food. Fresh air, summer and
winter, rain or shine, day and night.
out of doors if possible. Rest-all
you can get. Food-all you can eat
of plain food, bread and butter, milk
and eggs. Medicine is of little use.
'Patent medicines' do not cure con-
sumption. While you are taking them
you are losing time. Fresh air, rest
and food are better than all the med-
icines you can take. Don't lose time
with medicines."-The Journal of the
American Medical Association.
To the Women's Clubs of Florida:
The time is again approaching for the
use of the little Christmas stickers
for our letters and parcels, to carry
the message of cheer and good will
to our friends.
Christmas day commemorates the
life and work of one who bore a mes-
sage not only of cheer and good will,
but of hope and promise. He said:
"I come that they may have life, and
that more abundantly." And every
little Red Cross Christmas stamp that
any of us sent out last year bore in
its small way just such a message of
hope and comfort and promise of life.
This year we send out the glad tid-
ings not with a Red Cross Christmas
stamp as before. but with. a Florida
