physicians watching her could learn,

"angels" called on her every morning
at 4 o'clock and left a few dops of
"wine" and a few crumbs of tread.
She was sent to the Morris Plains

a little piece of cracker and take a

The Star considers that the follow following,
ing, following, which is the leading editorial in
this week's issue of Life, is about as
fair and accurate, as well as interest
trig, a sketch of the presidential situa
tion as can he found. During the
twenty odd years the writer has been
reading Life, he has found that its
political views were about as unpreju unprejudiced
diced unprejudiced and its prophecies as correct as
any that could be found, so he needs
make no apologies for presenting the
following to the readers of the Star:
The New Year begins with June 18
set as the date of the Republican Na National
tional National Convention and an interesting
group of candidates awaiting that day,
and whatever date the democrats may
fix upon. It is still probable, but by
no means sure, that the republicans
will invite Mr. Taft to make the effort
to succeed himself. Recent comment
has dwelt more on the defects, obvious
enough, in Mr. Taft's presidential equip equipment
ment equipment than on his great merits. Yet In
the next five months there will proba
bly be many who will reflect that while
Mr. Taft has made plenty of political
mistakes which were damaging to his
reputation as a party leader, he has
made very few which were damaging
to the country. Even now his record
on the tariff is incomplete and may be
mended somewhat before June. Some
persons consider that he has enforced
the Sherman law too much; others too
little; but few hold him responsible
for that law as it stands, or for not
compelling, or at least advising, a sub
stitute for it. That he could not well
do. Yet if he runs again he seems
quite likely to .he beaten. If he doesn't
run, who will?
Hardly Mr. La Follette, or Mr. Cum
mins. The former has too many hearty
antagonists. The latter seems not to
weigh quite heavy enough on the po
litical scales. Perhaps. If the republi
cans, when they come In June to the
point of dec'sion. consider Mr. Taft's
candidacy hopeless, they will sort out
of their nursery some man not yet con considered,

It. Probably, being still young and in

men's minds as a republican who may
be nominated in June.
As for the democrats, it seems quite

than a beginning president ought to
be, but very sound; objectionable, to be
sure, to Mr. Bryan, but a trustworthy,
seasoned man, and particularly suita suitable

nominate La Follette. In the public
mind Governor Harmon figures as a
man not under suspicion of having
revolution up his sleeve, and therefore
a conservative. He would probably

NEW BUILDIXG ENTERPRISE
A long felt need has been realized
for Ocala in the organization of the
new building company known as the
Florida Home Building Association. It
is a well recognized fact that we have
been losing each month to other towns

sought to locate here but were unable
to do so on account of the scarcity of
houses. This matter has been well
taken care of by another company but
there still remained that large class of
home-desiring, rent-paying people who
were unable to build for financial rea reasons.

himself and wrap himself more thick thickly

"Von are so stupid tbe last few days,"
Joan complained to him. "Vou don't

Is tbe matter?"
Sheldon smiled and beat a further
retreat within himself, listening tbe
while to Joan and Tudor propounding
the theory of the strong arm by which
the white man ordered life among tbe
lesser breeds. As be listened Sheldon
realized, as by revelation, that that
was precisely what be waa doing.
