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.

Today Dr. J. E. Chace goes out o

the office of mayor of Ocala, which he
has held for three years, with credit

to himself and advantage to the city

Ocala has never had a better mayor

than Dr. Chace. 11b accepted, the of

fice only at the earnest solicitation of

his fellow citizens, who twice elected
him to it. He has performed its

duties with quiet, unostentatious ef

ficiency. Taking the deepest interest
in the welfare and progress of the

city, he has done all in his power to

ward those ends. Executive officer of
Ocala during the war, the most trying
period of its existence, his quiet good

sense and patriotism were of the

greatest use to his fellow-citizens

Having served his city well, he lays

down his honorable burden with

sense of relief, and can go back into

private life in the assurance that the
people of Ocala thank and esteem

him for the faithful and efficien

manner in which he has served them

Major Robert L. Anderson as
surnes office with the brighest pros

pects for a successful administration

acceptable to the people and harmon

ious with the other branches of the

city government. The beginning of
his administration marks, we believe,
the opening of an era of harmony and
good feeling greater than our city
has known in many years. His elec election
tion election was a rebuke to factionalism and
selfishness. He possesses in a high
degree the qualities necessary to
make a good mayor and if he has
the help of the council and the citi citizenry
zenry citizenry we believe Ocala will make a
record for good during his term of
The Star sincerely supported
Messrs. Chace and Anderson during
their campaigns. It is proud of the
record made by the one, and has not
the least doubt that it will have rea reason
son reason to be proud of the record made
by the other.

word from the traveling man, Mr.


"Oh, dearl" mused Mary, sighing, as

she caught a glimpse of herself In the

large mirror over Mr. Robey's desk
across the room. "I'm surely getting
old, yet I'd do It over again Just the

same. Anyway, mother had every com

Mary was getting old. She had Just

her perfectly matured grace and poise,
she was now positively beautiful.

had one by one found a life partner

"No," Mary had told them. "While

mother lives my sole duty is to care
for her." And she had cared for her
most tenderly until the end, which was
now a year back.

"Miss Greeley," called Truesdale

through the partition windows, "have

"All right, thank you," came from

"Well, It Is 11:30," announced that
gentleman rising, watch In hand. "I
think I'll move down to the other end

When near the office, Mary met Mr.
Robey, who smiled at the coincidence
of their both returning. "I am going
for a cigar," he explained. Then he
courteously opened the door and they
entered. Crossing the soft carpeted
floor they went to their desks for the
sought-for articles.

had Just found his cigars, but sat

"Why, just think of it," expatiated
Truesdale, as he struck a light for his
cigar. "Here is a man thrown into the

Crossing the room the dapper little
man laid one hand very tenderly on

in our way ; in the way that has made

what it is that has given' u,s this unity,
this "virility, and this potency, the an answer

nation upon principles of law, and
upon the guarantees of individual
rights under the law. That is our
great contribution to civilization ; ana
if we are to be of use to other nations,
old or new, our first thought must be
to remain our own masters, to pre preserve
