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.

something to enjoy. In the first place
the choir was out in force for the
first time in a long while, as some of

the members have been absent on
sick leave for many weeks, and they
led the singing in a way that got ev everybody
erybody everybody in the congregation trying to

do their very best, while the beautiful

duet. "Gently Lord Oh Gently Lead
Us," as sung by Messrs. J. M. Huggins
and Frank Gates, was a gem of har harmonizing

equalled In this city.
The pastor then called on Deacon
(Judge) W. S. Bulock to make a few

remarks on the necessity of some im

mediate action on the part of the con

gregation in the matter of a church
building. The judge called attention

to the fact that the Sunday school

was so crowded for room that some of
the classes had to meet outside the

building, while (Others were packed

into class rooms like sardines. And

In the main room there were so many
voices that It was almost impossible

for scholars "to hear their own teach

had a proposition made to them, and
one that they unanimously favored

and wanted brought before the whole

congregation for their action.

A lot on the southeast corner of
Oklawaha avenue and Watula street,

said lot being 172 feet on the avenue
and 114 feet on Watula street, now the

property of W. T. Gary of this city,
had been offered to the church on the
following terms, to-wit: The price to

be $4500 cash, of which Mr. Gary do

nates $200 at the-time o sale and $200
each year for the next four years. The
proposition of the deacons was that
the church accept the lot on the terms
asked and that they proceed at once
to erect a church edifice thereon. At
the same time they wished the con congregation

matter but to study it up during the

In this remarkable romance of
the south seas Jack London has
rivaled the best efforts of Robert
LouisStevenson in the same field.
Interest is aroused at once and
becomes cumulative as Sheldon,
the plucky owner of Berande
plantation, though sick and wak,
dominates 200 head hunting
Solomon islanders by sheer grit
and fear inspiring weapons; as
Joan Lackland takes and holds
her place beside him while he
sears upon dark souls the
flaming mastery of the white
man;" as this man and woman,
thrown together under most un unconventional
conventional unconventional circumstances, work
and fight side by side in their
strange partnership. Their thrill thrilling
ing thrilling adventures among savage
people recall the lines:
"We are those fools who could
not rest
In the dull earth we left behind,
But burned with passion for the
And drank strange frenzy from
its wind.
The world where wise men live
at ease.

And blind across uncharted seas
We stagger on our enterprise.

clay pipe. The man-horse was greasy
and dirty and naked, save for an ex exceedingly
ceedingly exceedingly narrow and dirty loin cloth,
but the white man clung to him close
ly and desperately. At times from
weakness his head drooped and rested
on the woolly pate. At other times he

was not a breath of wind, and the

with pestilence. From the direction
they were going arose a wild clamor,
as of lost souls wailing and of men in
torment. A long, low shed showed
ahead, grass walled and grass
thatched, and it wa3 from here that
the noise proceeded. There were
shrieks and screams, some unmistak unmistakably

unendurable pain. As the white man
drew closer he could hear a low and
continuous moaning and groaning. He
shuddered at the thought of entering,

that he was going to faint. For that

in order to remember which of them

retain that powerful drug. One who
lay dead he ordered to be carried out.

I knock seven bells out of you, too
much, quick!"
With the automatic swiftness of a
wild animal the black gathered him himself
self himself to spring. The anger of a wild
animal was in his eyes; but he saw
the white man's hand dropping to the
pistol in his belt. The spring was
never made. The tensed body relaxed,
and the black, stooping over the corpse,
helped carry it out. This time there
was no muttering.
"Swine!" the white man gritted out
through his teeth at the whole breed
of Solomon islanders.
He was very sick, this white man,
as sick as the black men who lay help helpless
less helpless about him and whom he attended.
He never knew each time he entered
the festering shambles whether or not
he would be able to complete the
round. But he did know, in large
degree of certainty, that if he ever
fainted there in the midst of the blacks
those who were able would be at his
throat like ravening wolves.
Part way down the line a man was
dying. He gave orders for his removal
as soon as he had breathed his last. A
black stuck his head inside the shed
door, saying:
"Four fella sick too much."
Fresh cases, still able to walk, they
clustered about the spokesman. The
white man singled out the weakest
and put him in the place just vacated
by the corpse. Also he indicated the
next weakest, telling him to wait for
a place until the next man died. Then,
ordering one of the well men to take
a squad from the field force and build
a lean-to addition to the hospital, he
continued along the runway, adminis administering

aged to get into the chair, where he
panted in a state of collapse. In a few
minutes he roused himself. The boy
held the end of the telescope against
one of the veranda scantlings, while
the man gazed through it at the sea.
At last he picked up the white sails of
the schooner and studied them.
"No Jessie," he said very quietly.
"That's the Malakula."
He changed his seat for a steamer
reclining chair. Three hundred feet
away the sea broke in a small surf
upon the beach. To the left he could
see the white line of breakers that
marked the bar of the Balesuna river
and. beyond, the rugged outline of
Savo island. Directly before him.
across the twelve mile channel, lay
Florida island, and, farther to the
right, dim in the distance, he could
make out portions of Malaita. the sav savage

robbery, and man eating, the place
from which his own two hundred plan plantation

grass fence of the compound. The
gate was ajar, and he sent the house

a number of lofty cocoanut palms. Od
either side the path that led to the
gate stood two tall flagstaffs. like
ships' masts, with topmasts spliced on
in true nautical fashion, with shrouds,
ratlines, gaffs and flag halyards
From the gaff of one two gay flags
hung limply, one a checker board of
blue and white squares, the other a
white pennant centred with a red disk.
It was the international code signal
of distress.

he received the reports of the boss
boys and gave instructions for next
day's work. The boats' crew boss also
he had in, to give assurance, as was
the custom nightly, that the whale
boats were hauled up and padlocked.
This was a most necessary precaution,
for the blacks were In a funk, and a
whale boat left lying on the beach in
the evening meant a loss of twenty
blacks by morning. Since the blacks
were worth $S0 a piece or less, accord according
ing according to how much of their time had
been worked out. Berande plantation
could ill afford the loss. Besides,
whale boats were not cheap in the
Solomons, and. also, the deaths were
daily reducing the working capital.
Seven blacks had fled Into the bush
the week before, and four had dragged
themsel.ves back, helpless from fever,
with the report, that two more had
been killed and kai kai'd (eaten by
the hospitable bushmen. The seventh
man was still at large and was said
to be working along the coast on the
lookout to steal a canoe and get away
to his own island.
Viaburi brougnt two lighted lanterns
to the white man for inspection. He
glanced at them and saw that the the-were

which he did not move. He lay in a

became suddenly alert. A creak on
