MEMORIAL PARK FOR
MARION COUNTY'S MEN
It has long been the dream of the
committee on parks and driveways of
the Ocala Woman's! Club .Jha.. jOcala
may have,, some day in the near fu future,
ture, future, a beautiful city park and to this
end they are planning. The present
week has found riiembers of this com
mittee busily engaged in cleaning up
the property at the foot of Tuscawilla
street, which the city set aside for
this purpose. v
Now, when the subject arises as to
the most fitting and appropriate way
in which to honor Marion county's
brave boys, who responded so glor
iously to their country's cause, it has
been suggested that Ocala and all of
Marion county unite with this com committee
mittee committee and make a beautiful park as
a lasting tribute to them. Tuscawilla
has also been suggested as a fitting
name for this future park. Spanning
the mam entrance would be placed a
handsome arch to commemorate the
deeds of the boys of the army, while
a beautiful fountain would serve as a
reminder of what the boys of the navy
did m the world war.
To those whom the ) world would
love, to those whom it would honor,
it has always been the, custom for
countless ages to lay at their feet the
earth's choicest flowers. What now
therefore could be more appropriate
for Marion county to do than to pre
ssnt to her noble sons a park filled
with beautiful, flowers, waving palms
and winding walks?

A "FAIR QUESTION?
Tha question is frequently asked by
farmers in the various communities
of the county whether or"not Marion
county will have her annual fair this.
year. When asked why they wanted
tc know, they have invariably stated
they wanted time in which to prepare
an exhibit. Other counties in the
state are xight now working on the
fair they expect to have next fall
and it is not a bit too early to start
this gdod work. The county agent
and his assistant are covering the
county weekly and coming in touch
with enarly. all the farmers of the
county at least once during the month.
They are supporting this "fair" in
every way possible but their efforts
need, a little backing from the busi
ness men of the city. Ask every cus
tomer that comes into your store if he
is going to have something to exhibit
at our next fair. Tell him that he is
going to get a square deal with his
exhibit. If all the citizens of the city
would awaken, give this fair a little
push at times from now until the fall,
we couldn't help but have a fair that
would be a credit to the county and
state, also would be a financial gain.-

sometimes impossible to raise. In
the past ten years, many people in
Florida have given up their property
because the taxes on it made the dif
ference between what they could pay
and what they had to pay.
There are men in Marion county
who nay as much or more on little
cottages simply furnished than some
of their neighbors do on fine resi residences.
We know an old citizen who has
finsiderable nronertv which has been
rendered almost non-productive byj
the war. But he pays almost as much
taxes as a big mercantile firm, which
brags on doing a good business, year
in and year out, war or no war.
The tax collector of this county,
who is trying, with little encourage encouragement,
ment, encouragement, to start a move to reform this
abuse, says that if property was
honestly returned and equally assess assessed,

all our state and county expenses,
that people who are now overloaded

A reform of the tax laws is imper imperatively

COMMEMORATING THE SOLDIER
OFFSETTING THE LOSS
The Ocala Star says : "Government
ownedship of railroads would reduce
the state of Florida's tax receipts
about a million dollars a year. The
theorists hadn't thought of that."
Yes, i we have thought of that, but
we have thought how it can be offset
and not a dollar more tax collected
from those now paying it. Kentucky
'changed its tax system and in a year
got on its books $50,000,000 of per personal
sonal personal property, notes, mortgages and
such like, than it had ever had on
those books before. This was the net
result in one year of a system that

The present patchwork system of

It seems, ridiculous that it should be
understood that a man should return
his property to the tax collector at

The Story of a Valentine
I was once a piece of paper and a
little boy bought me. He cut me
into the shape of a heart and pasted
a pretty little picture on me. Having
done that he put me in a box where
there were many other hearts made
as I was, and I heard them say, "Well,
well, here comes another valentine.
We will soon be parted from each
ether, so we must be as kind to each
ether as we can be."
I was not there long before a whole
fcompany of. them came and we had a
good time talking. Soon it became so
dark -"In our little home, which was
only the box, that we went to sleep.
' When daylight "came, the boy came
also. He took us out of the little
box. .Then I saw him go and kiss his
mother good-bye, and he went out
and took us all with him. He went to
different houses and left me at a large
yellow house. A maid came, picked
me up and carried me up to a pretty
little girl who. placed me in a box.
