That wise old brther, A. P. Jordan
of the Punta Gorda Herald, perti pertinently
nently pertinently says: "The proposition to re
move the capital to Ocala is all right.
This writer suggested and advocated
it over thirty years ago, and his ad
vocacy of it induced Col. Thomas W.
Harris, now dead, to start in Ocala
a newspaper called the New Capitol.
The location of the capital at Talla Tallahassee
hassee Tallahassee is simply ridiculous. Remove
it. or divide the state. The House had
the courage, patriotism and good
sense to pass a law taxing dogs $2 a
year for the protection of sheep and
the benefit of the school fund. Any
dog that is not worth $2 a year to its
owner, ought to be killed; and any
dog owner who is unwilling to con
tribute $2 a year to the support of
the public schools, is not patriotic."
It is the Star's opinion that if the
farmers of the state had to pay for
their own hog serum, and the citrus
growers had to fight citrus canker
with their own funds, and if the men
who want their children to receive
college education paid for it out of
their own pockets, the people general generally,
ly, generally, including those who raise hogs,
oranges and send their children to
college, beside those who don't or
can't do those things, would not be
taxed until they were driven to the
verge of insanity to pay the money.
, The Star is not in favor of increas
ing the salaries of cabinet officers or
clerks in the various departments of
the state government, but it is in fa
vor of increasing the salaries of the
members of the legislature. They do
not receive enough to pay their board.
The Star thinks they should have a
thousand dollars apiece' for each term
they serve. This pay would enable a
higher class of men to stand for the
office, and the state would benefit ac

With a Woman's Club, a Rotary

Every bit of building that is beine
