Editor Star: The total assessment
on Ocala property for city taxes for
the year 1919 is $63,772. The books
have been open since the first day of
last October, yet at the close of busi business
ness business on the last day of February, less
than one-third of the assessment had
been paid.
The sale of lands for unpaid taxes
must be made on the first Monday in
May, and it must be advertised dur during
ing during the whole month of April. In
order to do this, the list must be made
up and-turned over to the printer not
later than March 20th, and as this list
will as it now stands include a great
deal more than half of all the prop property
erty property in Ocala, it must not be started.
I will hold this list until the 20th,
and while it will entail a lot of extra
work in milking it, and then taking
it out if paid before that date. I will
add no costs on any taxes paid by the
20th. After thejist hassgone to the
printer costs of advertising will be
added, and while the law allows a
penalty of five per cent on laws sold
for taxes, this penalty has not, here heretofore
tofore heretofore been collected where the taxes
were paid before the sale, but it may
be otherwise this year, as the city
needs the money and is paying eight
per cent for temporary loans. It does
seem that taxpayers would be satis
fied with a fifty per cent increase in
the tax rate and not wait for another
five per cent to be added.

serted yesterday before the House

that this was true even of member

on lips of everyone. It has a

A new Order will come. The one

How will she pay It; where will she

Lessons From the Strike.
An Old Country writer meditates

thus: The following lessons were
taught the residents in England by the
recent railway strike: Philosophy; the
value of humor; that there is no place

like home; that places seem a long
way off; that money is cheap; that
saccharine still exists; that fine

weather is a Jewel; that we are argu

mentative ; that a bicycle adds to one's

independence ; that walking Is digni

fied, and that scooting isn't: thatM

roads were made before railways, and

go to more places; that sweet negoti negotiators
ators negotiators are bitter fighters ; that a motor
car's capacity has nothing to do with
the number of its seats; that it is a
long strike that worries a schoolboy;

that little was known of England's
highways and byways; that there are
more ways of getting to a place than
flying; that we like to be companion companionable;
able; companionable; that few folks can state plain
facts plainly ; how well off we have
really been since the war ended.

those who knew it from contact with it,
those who were part and parcel of It.
I went to the man In the street, the

sweaty, dirty coal miner at the mouth
of the shaft. He had just come from

ground. I visited the man who works
In the mills'. I listened to the rough

speech of the teamster. I went to fac-1

black bread, ate cheese or sausage,
gulped tea, coffee or cheap, diluted red

Unrest Must Be Quieted.
Their state of mind is the problem.
Unrest is epidemic; It Is militant.
There is little of pacifism In It. It Is
real. It Is not without cause. To get

close to the cause of this disease which

threatens revolution, one must know
and understand what l going on In
the minds of the men we are looking

to and depending upon to do the

world's work. It doesn't take a

prophet to understand that If heed Is

not given to the thjngs irritating them

and a remedy is not found for the Irri

tation, serious trouble will follow.
While war is hell, It has at least

the restraint of discipline. A revolu

tion growing out of unrest would mean
mob madness, terrorism, fanatical,
brutal, cruel and merciless. Once
started, it would spread like wildfire.
The world would be swept from its
senses. The fire would run It? course
until stopped because there was noth nothing
ing nothing feft to burn. Who dares picture the
state In which It would leave the
world? In this day, when the nerves
of the world are on edge, when cbld
and hunger irritate, one shudders when
he thinks of the fate of civilization
if unrest is not checked before it ex explodes
plodes explodes In passion and wrath.
Unrest existed before the war. It was
an acorn then, It Is an oak now. Be Before
fore Before the war men were complaining,
and Justly complaining, about their lot.
The difference now Is that four years
In the trenches have caused them to
top complaining and act. Soldiering
taught them much. They learned of
the greatness of force.
Back of their present tendency, to
act is the grown grievance and the

war lesson. Before the war they com

plained; today they demand. It Is In Interesting
teresting Interesting to examine unrest In the
complaint stage, as these men knew It
before 1914.
These plain, ordinary average men
have always been intensely human.
They loved their wives and children,
they lived for their homes,. they felt
keenly their responsibility for the hap happiness
piness happiness oftheir loved ones. They have
but one thing to give. Before the war
they gave It unsparingly It was their
labor. Their one source of income was
the pay envelope. With their wages
they had to buy shoes, clothes, food.

and provide shelter for the lives they
brought Into the world, and for the

women they had chosen to be the moth
ers of those children.
"Home" Before All.

"Home, Sweet Home" is the Inter International
national International anthem. It Is the heart song
of the average man. The club plays
no part In his life. From his home he
goes to work, and from work he goes
home. Shanties and tenements are
not home9. These men have always
protested against the ugly shacks in
which they were compelled to house
their loved ones. They bit their lips
In Jobless days when their children
went to bed hungry. Resentment
grew In their hearts when they saw
how poorly dressed their wives and
children were. 13hey muttered curses
when their children were forced to go
to work. They wanted to give their
children a better education than they
had had, a better chance in life, and
they laughed at laws prohibiting child
labor, while conditions compelled chil

dren to work or starve. As these
men grew older their families grew In
size and demand, while their ability

to earn decreased. The tragedy reg registered
istered registered In their pay envelopes. They
were being ground between growing
.needs and diminishing wages. The
-grinding not only hurt their bodies, it
tfurrowed i their brain.
.They lived in dread of poverty. It
had been their nurse, they feared It
.would -be, their pallbearer.. .Poverty
Bad taken its revenge upon them.
They were resolving that if they could
help It It would not put its lash upon
their childrea. TLcy knew poverty

Light in Education.
Before th war men were brooding
on these' things, papers, books, maga

zlnes mirroring life, pictured these
horrors. They were the subject of

public discussion and debate.. Men re

turning from a hard day's work talked

these things over with their wives aft

er the children had gone to bed, and

many a man left his supper table to

peek through the half-closed door Into

the. room where his kiddles were sleep

ing, tiptoeing back, only to look into

the eyes of a mother, and see reflected

there the fears he felt.

The invention of the typesetting ma

chine, the cheap manufacture of paper,
the growth of public school systems

and public libraries, brought light to
the dark minds of the workmen. In

that light they saw more clearly thel

needs and more completely realized
their rights. It Is the natural ambition
of man to climb. He wants to get on

and up. Ignorance had keptjhira from

climbing. Ignorance is darkness. Men
stumble when they try to go forward

in t!ie dark. Education is the light In

the road. They sought to make haste

t. make up for the lost time. Education
taught them to want things for them

selves and their families that their
fathers and mothers never thought of

wanting. The homes which satisfied
their parents depressed and irritated

them. The bathtub and tooth brush are

acquired habits. The desire to straight

en the back that has been bent In toll
too long. Is put there by education.
One thing stood in the way It ob obstructed
structed obstructed the path upward to decent
living. They saw the barrier clearly
; nd distinctly poverty. They saw this
impassable obstacle "was made out of
poor wages. They saw more. They saw
that poor wages built the poorhouses
and filled them, organized the bread
lines, introduced-the soup house. Out
of their thoughts. In their experience,
they carved a truth, As long as some
people have more than they can pos possibly
sibly possibly use, while others through no
fault of their own have less than they
absolutely need, something is wrong,
and when the call to arms came these
'; thoughts were living In the mass mind
'of the world. Many not concerned with
the problem of the other seven-eighths,
knowing nothing of what was happen happening
ing happening In the minds of. the -men and
women of toll, and caring less, they
did not know that these men weri
