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.

Its Only Hope
London, Sept. 20. The Russian
army menaced by the German en encircling
circling encircling movement since Vilna fell is
estimated at 250,000 to 500,000 men.
Conditions are similar to those when
Warsaw fell, and may precipitate one

As far as can be judged, Field Mar Marshal
shal Marshal von Hindenberg's forces have
thrown a loop around the Russians
over a front of two hundred miles.
They are not only in the Russian
rear, but seriously menace the
single lailway line and few available
wagon roads stretching southward.
Few prisoners were left behind.
Apparently the only way the. Rus Russians

bad situation is by a counter blow. It
is pointed out that the German cav cavalry

try country so far as to create a salient open
to sudden attack if the Russians are
able to command reinforcements at
the proper time and place. It is not
believed, however, they are in posi position

There is much speculation as to
whether Ilindenberg will try to close
the loop, thus capturing the Rus Russian

toward. .-.Minsk and west through
Slonim,-and again try for the decisive
victory. : Similar tactics failed at

Next to Warsaw Vilna is the most

is a railway junction of great mili military

While the stock cars are not built
for racing but for general utility
cars, yet there is no discount on the
stock cars, either the 1915 or the new
1916 models as speedsters, and any
one of these cars, where the roads
will permit, will make its 60 miles an
hour, and the strength of the car and
the power and reliability of the motor
under high pressure, are ample to
withstand the test.
At Sweetwater, Texas, a few days
since, the Maxwell Twenty-five won
an endurance race held under the aus
pices of the American Automobile
Association. The average speed was
forty miles per hour over country
roads. Seven cars entered the race.

An Explosive So Deadly That to Make
It Is Suicide.
Explosives are solids which under
certain conditions suddenly change
into heated gas occupying many times
the original space of the solids.
Ordinary gunpowder when fired turns

times as great as that of the powder.
No wonder the bullet in front of it

Today there are scores, even hun hundreds,

to explode them. Others, such as ni nitroglycerin,
troglycerin, nitroglycerin, are fearfully dangerous to
handle, for a few extra degrees of
warmth or a very slight Jar is suffi sufficient
cient sufficient to turn them Instantly into gas.
Of the latter type there is nothing
quite so unstable as iodide of nitrogen.
It has to be made in alcohoL When
allowed to dry it appears as a brown
powder, and so unstable is this lew lewder
der lewder that a touch with a feather will
set it off. The experiment has been
tried of leaving a few grains upon a
table mixed with a few grains of
sugar. The first bluebottle that flew
on the table and began to crawl among
the grains caused an explosion.
The mere jarring of the air by a loud
shout or a heavy footstep is sufficient
to detonate iodide of nitrogen, and it
need hardly be added that no one in
his senses would attempt to make
this terrible stuff. To do so in any
quantity would be equivalent to com com-mlttlnsr

Ocala, Fla., Sept. 20th, 1915.
Editor Star: If the people of Ocala
insist on a new location for combined
electric light and water plant, they
should accept Mr. R. L. Anderson's
very liberal offer, providing there are
no restrictions to further use the
property for municipal purposes.
This location can be reached by three
railroads, and is not too far out and in
a most favorable section.
Now if Mr. Anderson will induce
his clients to withdraw their suit
pending before the supreme court
against the city, we will forget the
past. Then it will be harmony and
we can work together for the good of
Ocala, and Mr. Anderson will have
