There has been considerable talk
the last few days about the proceed proceedings

obtain some money the victim is al alleged
leged alleged to have.
The Star, which "has known all the
parties for years, has investigated
the matter, and finds no reason for
anyone to become indignant. To be

As for the money feature of the
story, the alleged victim was entitled
to a few hundred dollars from the
estate of his father, who died about
a year ago. He has received and
spent most of this money, and there
never was enough of it to pay anyone
for conspiring against him anyway.
The complaint against the man was
made by his sister, a respectable and
hardworking woman,, who has taken
more trouble with her weakminded
brother than many thousand dollars
would pay her for. She alleges that
she is afraid of him, and -those who
are well acquainted with the parties
can easily believe that her fear is
well grounded. Her brother, patient,
goodnatured and kind with his friends
around town, like some sane men, is
sometimes very different at home.
It is praiseworthy in the friends of
the unfortunate man that they are so
willing to help him, but if they are
going to keep him out of the asylum
they should also see to it that he is no

worked hard and suffered much ever

A STATEMENT ABOUT
THE RELIEF CAMPAIGN
WJien the writer accepted appoint appointment

Marion county for the American Com Committee
mittee Committee of Relief in the Near East, he
was of the opinion that it would not
be difficult to raise the $5000 asked,
that it would need only to acquaint
the people with the awful needs of
those countries to secure generous
contributions. But he has found that
he was Mistaken. A number of teams
to canvass for funds we.re secured,
but he had quite a number of person
decline to serve, and the teams ap appointed

many people have turned them down
without giving a cent, and others who
could have given liberally have only
given a nominal sum.
People have pled that the war is
over, when it is apparent to an aver average
age average intelligence that the war is not
over. It is no time to lay down on
the job the United States undertook
when it entered the fighting. We un undertook
dertook undertook to make the world a decent
place to live in. It is hot decent when
millions of people are on the verge of
starvation, and we will never be for forgiven
given forgiven at the bar of history, if we do
not 'see this thing through. It does
not take fighting in the Near East. It
only takes money to buy food and
seeds and implements to save whole
races alive. If our boys had stopped
in No Man's Land no victory over
Germany would have been possible.
We must emulate the boys. We can cannot
not cannot honestly stop until the victory for
the people of the Near East has been
won. We are rank cowards if we do.
It has been given as an excuse by
some that they have gone the limit in
buying Liberty Bonds, war savings
stamps, in contributing to the RedJ
Cross, the Y..M. C. A., etc. In reply
to such an excuse it should be said
that 'no man has a right to plead his
purchases of bonds and stamps as a
reason for not giving to this relief. He
is better off by having made such
purchases. He is not poorer, but
richer by having done so. In many
cases he would not have had that
money at all if he had not loaned it to
the government. It would have been
spent, but now it is a saving on which
he is getting a good rate of interest.

the guns ceased firing. I was on the

down, and things became so quiet it
was an awful change, for I had heard
the guns roaring almost continuously ;
from the 12th of September to the
11th ofNovember at 11 o'clock.
I think we -were lucky" to live-thru
the night of the 10th and the morning
of the 11th, for it was the worst bar barrage

We are now in Germany and every-
thing is as quiet and peaceful as can
be. The people are good to us, but
the weather is cold and raining all the

Soldiers Overseas To
Serve For Y. M. C. A.;
Fewer Men Go From U. S.
Dr. D. M. Smith has presented to
the Ocala public library a large num
ber of valuable books, which were the
property of his lamented wife. Mrs.
Smith took a wholehearted interest
fc the library, giving it, many hours
of efficient work almost every week
while she was well enough to do so,
and it seemed to the doctor that the
best disposal he 'could make of her
books was to donate them to the in
stitution to which she was so devoted.
Mrs. Smith's tastes ran to solid
reading, and her books were not only
valuable but- many of them outside
the realm of ordinary literature. With
them go the bookcases, handsome and
convenient receptacles of glass and
polished wood. They are a great ac
cession to the library.
The library association, to show its
appreciation of Dr. Smith's gift, and
to perpetuate Mrs. Smith's memory,

It is a mooted question as to how
far a lawyer should go in the defense
of a client. Some maintain that a law
yer has no right to take the case of
'a man he knows to be guilty; others
think that no matter 'how culpable
a criminal may be ,,it is the duty of
his attorney to clear him if possible.
It seems to the Star there is a middle
course. No matter how guilty a man
may be, he is entitled to a defense, but
we think that when a lawyer delib

Sneak thieves are operating in town
again. A lady in the second ward, the
other morning, looking across the
street saw a- negro trying to break
into her neighbor's icebox. The man
was frightened away but will try
again somewhere else. We hear of
some other occurrences that lead us
to believe. Ocala is about to suffer
from one of those occasional raids of
characters who will steal, or do worse,
if they have a chance. For years we
have lived in hope that ,some person
would line the sights of a gun one one
of the light-fingered gentry, but so
far have been disappointed.

DAILY HEALTH TALUS
The Best Way to Treat
BY S. C. BABCOCK, M. D.
The medical books name many drugs
that will move the bowels. The druc store
shelves are loaded down with laxatives,
purgatives and pilb. The trouble with
B??82J H the f?" Con-
stipated people know that pills work all

their effect, and a chance has to he made
to something else. The constant takinz of
pills results in a form of bowel inactivity
that is difficult to cure. The system be-
A 1 1 .t 1
comes so accustomed xo laxative drugs
that the organs just won't work without
them, and so the pill habit becomes as bad
j as constipation itself. Dr. Pierce, of Buf
falo, N. Y., seems to me to have the right
idea. He says the bowels should first be
gently moved with Pierce's Pleasant Pel Pellets,
lets, Pellets, and m the meantime laxative foods
only should be eaten. Fis, prunes, olive
oil, spinach, bran, vegetables and fruits are
fine for constipation. Chew every bite
thoroughly, eat little meat, and be as
active as ''possible. Now, doesn't that
seem sensible? Pleasant Pellets will start
the bowels working right; then it is up to
you to keep them right by right eating.
Try Pleasant Pellets for sick headache,
coated tongue, biliousness, dizziness, tor torpid
pid torpid liver or to break up a cold. They
are just fine!
Dr. Pierce's Anodyne Pile Ointment
soothes, cools and heals piles in a most
srraiif ving way. Perhaps there is no other
remedy for this torturing trouble that
relieves so surely and quickly. Dr. Pierce
believes Anodyne Pile Ointment will over overcome
come overcome any case that can be overcome by
medical treatment. Try it right now.
Dr. Pierce's An uric Tablets are intended
for people who suffer from kidney dis disorders
orders disorders whose backs ache, and whose
systems are overrun with uric acid. Nearly
everybody has too much uric acid.
Anuric Tablets dissolve uric acid quickly,
as they are made double strength.
