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.

What is the business of a board of
trade? This question is of interest in
view of the fact that an effort is be being
ing being made to put the Marion County
Board of Trade on its feet again, and
give it a newlife.

' The federal government and the
state governments have their depart
raents of commerce, industry and
agriculture and their various bureaus.
These departments have their bureaus
of land development, of industrial ex extension,
tension, extension, of marketing, of business ef efficiency,
ficiency, efficiency, or trade extension, of agri agricultural
cultural agricultural development and betterment,
of sanitation and. health, of pure food
and drugs, of good roads, of crop esti estimates,
mates, estimates, of weather, of horticulture, of
exhibits, of forestry, of information,
of publications, of state's relations,
and others. It is the business of a
board of trade to concern itself with
all of these things for the particular
betterment and benefit; of the town or
the county, to co-operate with these
federal and state bodies. All of these
matters and the problems which arisw
from them are of a special and partic particular
ular particular nature in each community. The
people of a community, its business
men, cannot meet the problem as in individuals.
dividuals. individuals. They must organize. They
must have a clearing house for ideas,
and a scheme for carrying out the
ideas. This is the commercial, club,
the chamber of commerce, board of
trade, or whatever it may be called.
If the board of trade does not have
its bureaus, it has its committees. It
has its secretary, just as the federal
and state .departments mentioned

board of governors.
The work of a board of trade should
be constant and not sporadic. It is a
splendid thing to "whoop things up"
from time to time, wake up those
that are sleeping and to revivify
latent spirits, but there is a great
mass of routine matters for a board

work of a commercial body is only of
an indirect benefit to the community
but of great benefit nevertheless.
The board of trade should reflect
the community. It should operate on
a sound business basis, and not solely
upon a "boom" basis. Otherwise it
cannot expect to have very much good

Today is St. Patrick's day, and if
the way saint's days are celebrated is
a proof of the popularity of the
saints, Patrick has all the other sanc sanctified
tified sanctified ones" skinned seven ways from
the act.
Along about the time of the cru crusades,
sades, crusades, it occurred to most nations,
cities and communities generally, to
adopt patron saints. All the said
saints had been dead quite awhile,
else they would hardly have been
adopted. In the British isles.. St.
George was for England, St. Andrew
for Scotland, St. David for Wales and
St. Patrick for Ireland. Across the
channel, St. Denis was for France and
St. James for .Spain. St. James and
St. Andrew were apostles; St. George
was a bishop of Cappadocia, in Asia
minor, probably never heard of Eng England
land England and according to Gibbon was a
disreputable old rascal; all we know
about St. David is that Shakspere
says that Fluellen wore a leek in his
czp in honor of "St. Tavy's'day," that
Pistol made fun of him and Fluellen
beat" Pistol and made him eat the
leek; which is more than we ever
learned about St. Denis. But St. Pat Patrick
rick Patrick wias an Irish Abraham Lincoln-
the longer he was dead, the more
things people remembered about him,
and while' pretty near all the other
national saints have gone into the
discard, St. Patrick is a bigger man
today than ever. Not "only in Ire Ireland,
land, Ireland, for there is hardly a city inlAm-
enca without a good-sized Irish ele element
ment element which celebrates March 17, and
which always has the approval and
co-operation of a good many Ameri Americans,
cans, Americans, who join the celebration in
neighborly spirit.
Irish blood is plentiful in America;
second only to English. Few Irish
came to America during colonial days,
owing to nearly all the English colo colonists
nists colonists being Protestants, and rather in intolerant
tolerant intolerant toward all other sects. After
the revolution, antipathy for England
and a broader spirit in religion partly
overcame this, and the warm welcome
extended .to Irish rebels, who escaped
with their lives and little else, made
America the land of hope for Hi Hibernians,
bernians, Hibernians, who came over by thousands
and sometimes tens of thousands eve every
ry every year until a. few deeades ago. More
than any other people, the Irish have
intermarried with the Americans un until
til until traces of the unmistakable Hiber Hibernian
nian Hibernian type are seen in many whose an ancestors
cestors ancestors on both sides have lived for
several generations on American soil.
Notwithstanding this intermixture,
few Americans have any but the most
elementary idea of Irish history and
the same may be said of the Irish
themselves. ... ;
The Irish were the most western
outpost of that Aryan emigration
that started from. India before it oc occurred
curred occurred to anyone to write history.
Partly from the inborn Aryan love of
adventure; partly from pressure of
the tribes coming oh behind, they did
not stop, altho their migration took
thousands of years, until their boldest
souls stood on the cliffs of Ultima
Erin and looked on the t ocean that
they believed spread to the edge -of
the world. If they had suspected that
less than two thousand miles beyond
the sunset lay another vast continent;,
they would have been down on the
beach with a shillaleh in one hand and
a potheen in the other to greet Colum Columbus
bus Columbus when he landed.
But they didn't know, so they filled
up Ireland, giving it a civilization at
least as high as that of the Gauls at
the time of Caesar. They seem to
have been more civilized than either
the Britons or the Scots and Picts in
the bigger island to the eastward.
They were certainly better versed in
war and seamanship, proving this by
the success with which they raided
the coasts of both England and Scot Scotland,
land, Scotland, carrying off the pretty girls and
young men for wives and slaves, and
knocking the old folks in the head
when they were not spryr enough to
get out of the way. It was on one of
these raids that they captured St.. Pat Patrick..
rick.. Patrick.. The saint was a Scotchman, tho' his
draft card would probably have indi indicated
cated indicated that he was liable to military
service as a Roman citizen, Rome
owning Britain up to the great wkll
at that time. Pat was the son of a
decurion (a corporal in the Roman
army), and was born near Dumbar Dumbarton
ton Dumbarton on the Clyde. He was carried off
by marauders and sold to ahand of
Irish Picts, who took him to their
home at Antrim. After six years, he
escaped, but with the determination to
go back and convert the Irish to
Christianity. He accordingly entered
the priesthood and put in a number of
years in work and study, after which
he was ordained a bishop and return returned
ed returned to Ireland. As an evangelist, Pat
rick would have had Billy Sunday tied
to a post. He baptized with his own
hands over 12,000 persons, ordained
many priests and founded 360
churches. He aIso( sems to have been
the patron saint of the W. C. T. U.
and the Anti-Saloon League, for he
drove the snakes out of Ireland.
More myth of. the praiseworthy
kind was attached to Patrick than to
ay other saint in the calendar, which
is a high tribute to him, for it is a
good sign when so many good things,
even if some of them are fables, at attach
tach attach to a man's memory. 1
The Irish are strong on myth. This
is not to their discredit, for early his history
tory history was all myth, and some made in
the last few months came out of the
same barrel. The legends of King
Arthur and his table round, the Ara Arabian
bian Arabian Nights, and the German fairy
tales once dear to every American
and British child, are not 'more fasci

nating than Jrish folklore and their
stories of Fingal and their other
heroes. This literary gift was never

lost, but Irish authors of the nine-
tcenth century had a much better
chance to win permanent fame than
those of a thousand or more years
For some centuries after St. Pat Patrick,
rick, Patrick, Ireland was a stronghold of
learning. The emerald isle had many
schools at a time when the rest of
western Europe seemed about to be
submerged in barbarism, and had the
people the quality of cohesion, suffic sufficient
ient sufficient to have knit them into a nation,
they would probably have occupied to today
day today the place in the world now held
by Britain. Not that they were worse
divided then than other people of that
time, but the others have learned to
unite and they haven't.
Nevertheless, these were the golden
centuries of Ireland, for the people
were more prosperous and free than
those, most likely, anywhere else in
the world, and no. more, disunited
than those of other nations, except
those that groaned under oppressive
rulers who kept them united by force.
Two or three times great leaders, by
diplomacy, and hard fighting, united
most of the Irish for a while, but
when the scepters dropped from their
dying hands there were none strong
enough to pick them up, and tribes
and little kingdoms relapsed to their
disintegrated independence.
Then came the English. Henry II.
obtained from the pope a bull giving
him permission to conquer the island,
and soon availed himself a quarrel be between
tween between two chiefs to obtain a foothold.
The English conquest was by degrees.
Some few Irish chiefs surrendered
citright, but most of the English con conquest
quest conquest was made by playing off one
tribej or little kingdom against an another,
other, another, or by supporting a weak fac
tion against a stronger one. The
English ever had strong support
among the natives. Even when Bruce,
who had just driven his southern
neighbors from Scotland, sent his
brother with an army to free lreland,
the Scotch received such meager sup support
port support that they had to return home
after losing many men. There was,
m fact, little disagreement between
English and Irish until religious dif
ferences began. In the sixteenth cen
tury the English became Protestant!,
and tried to make the Irish conform
with them, and then the real trouble
As every reader of history knows,
Europe was shattered with religious
wars for over two hundred years, and
the. wars were more wicked than the
one that has just ended. WTien a
man's conscience demands that he be
cruel, he goes the limit, and almost
every man in western Europe had a
conscience of that kind during the six sixteenth
teenth sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Ire Ireland
land Ireland had her full share of the trou trou-bje.
bje. trou-bje. The Catholics were generally
the oppressed and suffered the most.
They did not suffer as much as the
Protestants in France, and not much
more than Protestants suffered from
other Protestants in England and
Scotland, but they passed thru many
bloody, cruel years. Under the reign
of James I. the natives were driven
out of Ulster and their lands given to
English and Scotch emigrants. A
few times they "got back" at their
oppressors. Under Charle3 I. and
later under James II. they enjoyed fc
few years of "supremacy, during which
they did not fail to dose the English
heavily with their own medicine. But
England always prevailed in the end,
and each rebellion made the people
worse off. s
Economic discrimination was added
to religious persecution and kept the
island, outside of Ulster, in poverty.
Up to the latter half of the nineteenth
century, Irish industries were handi handicapped
capped handicapped by the English, and great
estates were left in the hands of land landlords
lords landlords who stayed away from .their
lands, meantime taxing the tenants
beyond all reason for rents. With
little or no incentive to improvement,
the peasantry became improvident
and fearful famines swept the coun country.
try. country. Matters became so bad that at
last the English conscience awoke,
and a number of English statesmen
began a movement that has steadily
increased- to improve Irish affairs.
Unfortunately, owing, it is hard to
say which, to their natural disposition,
or to suspicion engendered by cen centuries
turies centuries of oppression," the Irish often
refused what their friends tried to
give them and instead called for some
thing their friends didn't have to give.
One instance of this is home rule.
The British government would have
given the Irish a parliament and con
trol of their home affairs years ago
if Ireland had not been divided on the
subject. First, it was Ulster
Protestant Ireland which believed,
with reason, it would suffer from an
Irish government. A few years ago,
there was a move to give Catholic Ire
land home rule and let Ulster remain
with Britain, but there was vigorous
resistance to this, too; this issue be
ing what caused the Germans to be believe
lieve believe in 1914 that all Ireland was
ready to rebel an unlucky mistake
for Fritz, as a large majority of the
Irish have supported the empire.
The centuries that have passed
since St.. Patrick was carried a slave slave-boy
boy slave-boy to. Erin have been but minutes
by the clock of time, so the day may
come when those wno wear the green
and those who wear the orange will
reconcile their differences and work
together for what should be- one or
the favored spots of earth. In the
meantime, it is all right for all hands
to celebrate St. Patrick's day, for the
good saint stood for kindness and
service for his fellow men, without
which religion would be a mummery.

Knees and- Beg for Water.
Since the boys who have come back
from captivity in Germany arrived the
tone of our ward out at Tottenham.
London, has changed, writes Manraret
Walter In Chicago Evening Post. Be
fore that It was the rarest thing that
any boy showed a desire for revenge
when he spoke of Fritz or Jerry. Even
uiose wno Have suffered most In battle
have been frank In their admiration
of the German as a fighting man. But
when the prisoners began to come In
and tell their stories last month thlDgs
cnanged, and now the boys have con
ceived a personal hatred for kuitnr
which will not be cast off with hospital
blue and the return of these boys to
civil life.
One boy of twenty, who spent the
last four deaths working In the salt
mines of Germany for three pfennig
(prison money) a day, tells a story
of wrongs and sufferings at the hands
Of a hyphenated American. This
German-American: who happened to
be In the fatherland when war broke
out, enlisted In. the German Red
Cross, became a sergeant, and during
the last months was put in charge of
all. American prisoners In his camn.

In America and bemoanlnsr the sad
fate that destined him to be'fighting
on the wrong side. In this way he
disarmed the Americans, gt their con confidence,
fidence, confidence, and in some cases, no doubt,
obtained Information. When, however,
he had got all that he could from tbe
boys he would begin a system of tor

that they never-got. away from me,
and just as soon as I get back home
rm going to the town where that ser
geant's family lives and I'm going to
show them what hate Is."
The white-faced boy raised himself
on his arms and two red spots burned
in his cheeks. The other boys drew
round aghast. They had evidently
heard the tale before.
Will Make It Hot for Him.
"We're going to join him, too, all lis
fellows ; when we get back home wete
going to that town In Iowa where that
German Red Cross sergeant -came from
and make -it too hot for him ever to
dare to show up there again. It sura
Isn't going, to be a healthy place for
him to come back to. We don't want
any more of that kind of citizens In
The boy on the cot told- me that
even now he can't sleep at "night for
thinking of the horrors that took place
deep .In the bowels of those German
salt .mines.
"The thirst torture was the worst,
he said. "When all the boys are asleep
here at night I get to thinking how
that sergeant made me go on my knees
and beg for water and then threw It
on the ground In front of my face. I
see as plain as If It were right here,
and the sick boy bent double, shoved
along in the working gang and never
allowed to fall back, till they dropped
In their tracks, all beaten, up with
rifle butts. 1
"But I've no complaint of the faro
we had ; miserable as it was, I be
lieved it was as good as some of tha
Germans had themselves. The little
children of the poorest class used to
hang round the barbed wire Inclosure
begging for scraps. We used to throw
things over to them; especially the
British Tommies, when they 'got their
Red Cross prisoners packages. It's
no use us men couldn't 6ear to see
little children starving, no matter
whose children they were."

The Arlington, Mass fire depart

practically everything under the' sun,
Including fires, had the surprise of Its
life the other day when It was sum

a frozen milk can. M. Clare Whit Whit-taker,

Mrs. Ernest C. Whlttaker, discovered
a large milk can frozen In the ground.
Childlike she nut her foot In the can.
Then, exercising the privilege of ner

it wouldn't come, and began to scream.
Neighbors, unable to help her, called
the police.
The police, finding themselves baf baffled,
