The Star greatly regrets to learn
of the death of David D. Rogers, one
of the best known and most efficient
civil engineers in Florida, who passed
away at his home in Daytona Wednes Wednesday,
day, Wednesday, April 23.
Mr. Rogers was a native of Plain Plain-field,
field, Plain-field, N. J., and came to .Florida in
1873. He was one of the pioneers of
the East Coast. He was also well
known in this part of the state where
he was actively engaged in phosphate
mining for a number of years. With
his family he resided in Ocala from
1891 to 1896, and made many friends
among our people.
,Mr. Rogers was sixty-nine years of
age, avprogressive citizen and a man
of high "personal character. His life
was most nelpful to his community
and his death is greatly regretted. In
his passing the writer loses a loved
and faithful friend, and we mingle
our sorrow with that of his bereaved
The Tampa Times tells things
about legislation at Tallahassee and
other state affairs that other papers
don't allude to. Either it is braver
than the other papers or not so much
influenced. The following, from its
Tallahassee correspondent reveals a
most flagrant imposition on the
rights of the people. If the legisla
ture has a proper sense of respect
for itself and regard for the rights
of the plain people back home it will
see that lobbyists are shut off from
the advance information on measures
spoken of in the following:

one had taken the trouble. to clip the
editorial and put it under first class
postage so that there would be no
chance of missing it. If the member
would watch the lobby he would learn
something about the transmission of
news affecting corporate interests or
men of wealth which might perhaps
interest him. He would note, if he
watched carefully, that any bill of
such type is seized on before it is
fairly in place on the clerk's desk
and copies of it made. Then the

That's the one big question that the citrus growers of Florida arecalled on to answer.
Shall we, citrus growers, spend for ourselves and families the money which our fruit

Or shall they, the persons connected with the speculating marketing agencies, expend
for their comforts and pleasures the profits earned by our groves?

our investment and labor, or they can be allowed to benefit tremendously at our expense.

A VACATION IN FRANCE
The friends of Mr. Seth P. Hollin Hollin-rake,
rake, Hollin-rake, of this city, who is serving as
a Y. M. C. A. secretary in France,;
will be interested to read the follow following
ing following account of a vacation from his
work which he recently enjoyed.
Writing to his wife he says:
Bordeaux, March 22, 1919.
My dear Wife: As I have a little
time at my disposal I will endeavor to
give. you a brief account of my va vacation
cation vacation trip, which was full of interest
to me and afforded me an opportunity
of seeing some parts of France that
I particularly wanted to see.
In company with Mr. H. G. Rowe, a
friend and former co-worker in the
hut at St. Andre, I went to Paris on
the night of the 10th, arriving there
on the morning of the 11th, where
Mr. Rowe attended to some personal
business matters and I put in the
time sightseeing, going over ground
that I had formerly gone over for
the most part when I was in Paris
upon my arrival in France.
The morning of the 12th we went
up to Rheims, and put in the day go going
ing going through the city, German and
French trenches and the cathedral.
My feeble pen cannot begin to de describe
scribe describe the impression made upon my
mind by a sight of that devastated
city. It seemed to paralyze my
senses. For nearly half an hour I
could not speak to my companion.
There is scarcely a square yard in the
whole city that has not been raked by
shot and shell. You must understand
that here in France one does not see
wooden buildings, but they are all
stone or brick. It was so in Rheims.
There is nothing left today but the
bare walls reaching up to the sky,
silent sentinels, bearing testimony of
the hell that raged there in the days
of battle. Cathedral, palace, business
blocks, residences, hut and hovel,
have all been pierced through and
through time and again, and the won wonder
der wonder is that men could have lived
through such a hell to fight back
such a merciless enemy. My recol recollection
lection recollection is that Germany denied using
the Rheims cathedral as a target, but
the evidence is against them, as the
destruction is greater in that region
than any other part of the city.
Rheims is as silent as the grave. No
one is living there except the French
military guard and a few workmen
here and there in small squads, usu usually
ally usually German prisoners, repairing the
streets and cleaning away for the
reconstruction work that must begin
From the city we went out to the
French trenches about three kilo kilometers
meters kilometers distant and examined them
carefully, endeavoring to form in our
minds something of an idea of their
method of defense. That they fought
bravely and sacrificed greatly seems
to be clear. There was evidently no
intention of giving up the struggle,
even if Rheims had been captured, as
one sees evidence of careful prepara preparation
tion preparation to fight all the way back to the
coast had that been necessary.
Next we visited the German
trenches which were only a few yards
distant. One gets the impression that
they had expected to remain en entrenched
trenched entrenched there for the balance of
their natural, blood-thirsty, brutal,
villainous lives. Some of the dug dugouts
outs dugouts ran down into the ground thirty
or thirty-five feet. One of those we
entered was supported with brick
walls,' and the floor was littered with
broken looking glasses, indicating
that that particular hole was occupied
by Potsdam officers, who were fond
of looking at their damphool images
and admiring themselves greatly.
They certainly constructed it with a
view of protecting their precious
hides. Their trenches were deeper
than the French. We came upon a
detail of German prisoners engaged
in discovering and exploding German
explosives hidden away in a large
underground ammunition dump. You
will pardon me I am sure when I tell
you I had an intense desire to see the
whole shebang blow up and land eve every
ry every last one of them upside down in a
boiling pot of brimstone in the mid middle
dle middle of hell. That sounds harsh,
doesnt it? But then you are excus excusable.
able. excusable. You have not seen Rheims.
We went through Chateau Thierry
on our way out, expecting to stop off
there, but got a good view of the city
from the train, and could form a very
good estimate of the damage done,
and, as the trenches were some dis distance
tance distance out, we decided to proceed to
Rheims and judging by what I saw I
am sure our decision was a wise one.
We saw one German airplane that
had fallen head-on, but did not dis discover
cover discover the aviator. It looked as tho'
it hit with a dull thud and it may be
that said aviator is still going down.
By the way, I forget to say that I
pulled out a hip bone out of the mud
in one of the German trenches, which
said act did not cause me any great
amount of grief, in fact not enough
grief to be noticeable, as I had a
pretty good idea what kind of animal
walked around on the said hip bone,
when its marrow was still warm and
drawing its sustenance from sauer
kraut and beer.
We returned to Paris the night of
the 13th and remained there until
2:10 p. m. the next day, when we took
the American leave area train (prop (properly
erly (properly fitted out with conductor and
news-butch in real American style, a

for Lyon, where we stayed over night
sitting up in the Y. M. C. A., the city
being so crowded by reason of a fair

be had at any price. The morning of
the 14th we proceeded from Lyon to
Chamonix via Ais les Bain and An-
neccy, at which latter point we stop stopped

and a look at the place. Anneccy is

two ranges of the Alps. We reached
Chamounix about nine that night, be being

"Y" man who met us and got us prop properly

The morning of the 15th in com company
pany company with about twenty soldier boys
and a guide the male portion of our
party set out for a hike up Mont
Blanc. We went up on the right hand
side of the glazier Bossons, crossing
tliis glacier at the first crossing,
which is as high as you go at this
season of the year, descending on the
opposite side. When we reached the
rest station at the crossing another
guide equipped with ropes and all
necessary things for our safely joined
our party, so we were all taken care
of. We found several places where
it seemed to me a miss-step would
make Ocala the richer by the addition
of one beautiful widow, which addi addition
tion addition to that beautiful city I had no in intention
tention intention of making. Nay, nay, nay,
Mont Blanc is usually swathed in
clouds and mist, but at this season in
clouds and snow storms, so I greatly
feared we would not get a peep at its
highest peak, but just as we were
leaving the clouds lifted for about fif fifteen
teen fifteen minutes and it was bathed in
sunshine, and my eyes beheld the
finest view this man ever witnessed.
Its highest point reached so far up
into the heavens that one can scarcely
perceive where the mountain ends and
the sky begins. It was a glorious
sight and one that will not fade
from memory "till reason comes tot tottering
tering tottering from its throne," as Frank
Clark would say.
About 4 p. m. we bade farewell to
Chamounix and proceeded to Aix les
Bains, which means place of the
baths, so I am told, where we put up
for the night. A part of the forenoon
of the 14th was spent discovering the
points of interest about that place
where so many rich Americans go
every year to take a bath or two,

Time was fleeting and we must
hurry along. So we proceeded to
Grenoble and from thence
we took the midnight express for the
coast and arrived at Marsailles early
on the morning of the 18th, where I
met our friend Top Sergeant Edwin
Pound. Edwin was looking just fine

Mediterranean for a considerable dis distance

put up at the Luxemburg hotel, where
they speak English indifferently and
where I spoke French horribly, never nevertheless

You find it in the following ways:

2. When you want"aIittl5extra"smoothness in traffic performance.
3. When you want "a little extra" mileage on tires.
. 4. When you want "a little extra" mileage on gas.
For there arc two things in particular this Hot Spot
Chalmers is noted for. One is the power it extracts from gas;
and the other is the ease with which that power is used.
Sitting in the tonneau or at the wheel you notice them.
And notably the last named. The stillness, the lack of lurch,
the muffling of all mechanical action is as noticeable as the fog
horn is to the mariner when the fog horn stops.
Hot Spot "breaks" up the gas so that the engine can
get at the power that nature put in gas and Ram's-horn finishes
the jb by feeding it gently, quickly and to each cylinder at
