frage suffrage advocates are trying to again
bring before the Senate contains a
clause in which the regulation of elec

In case that "daylight saving
foolishness is' forced 'upon us again
this' summer, the Star recommends
that the city of Ocala put itself on
sun time. This it will be' easy to do
by setting the courthouse clock to
that time, and ringing 6 a. m. and 6
p m. on the firebell. Business men,
of course, will have to keep their
watches on railroad time, but as al
most every family has two clocks it
will be. easy to synchronize one of
them with the courthouse clock. If
the people will carry on their local
business and social affairs by sun
time, they will find it much more con convenient
venient convenient and pleasant than by the ab abnormal
normal abnormal time forced on them by the
cranks. At present, Ocala shops and
stores open at from 7 to 8 o'clock,
which is G:30 to 7:30 sun time, and is
convenient enough in Vie spring, sum summer
mer summer and early autumn. But if another
hour is taken from this for "daylight
saving," they will have to begin work
at 5:30 to 6:30, and noon will come at
10:30 in the morning, which is out of
all reason. At present, some of our
business and manufacturing folks go
to djnner at twelve o'clock and some
at one, which causes customers to be
uncertain when to find them. How
much more uncertain it will be with
the clocks set forward another hour
is impossible to forecast.' If the city
is put on sun time, the Star will
publish every day a double schedule
of sun and railroad time, which will
enable all who have to meet the trains
to make the proper calculations. Last
year, when "daylight saving" was in inaugurated,
augurated, inaugurated, all the trains were speed speeded

that this will.be done this year, con consequently,

there is no telling how or where the

are filters, and when they are healthy
they remove the poisons from the blood
and purify it. "When the kjdneys are

stopped still In the road. Standing
over the broken wall In the clear

growls. "What what," choked Ralph.

bear's head thrown back, Bennle came
