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.

"The world is anxious to return to a

United States, other governments
would undoubtedly propose amend amendments,

Wheat Forced Down When Market

..Opened this Morning but Stead-
; ily Climbed Up Again
(Associated Press) rf
Chicago, Aug. 4. A sensational
smash in the wheat market of 13
cents this morning at the opening
was followed by an equally sensa
tional recovery of 11 cents." Business
on a big scale and the rush to sell ap appeared
peared appeared to be based upon the unfavor unfavorable

sweet potato caterpillar has made its
appearance in the southern portion of
the county and in some fields has al
ready done considerable damage.
Starting this early in the season, the
chances are that it will do much ser
ious injury to the potato crop if net
checked. It will be well for all potato
growers to keep a close watch on
their fields and be prepared to fight
this insect as soon as it arrives.
The most effective remedy is arse
nate of lead at the rate of one pound
of the powder to 50 gallons, of water,
with two pounds of quicklime added.
The solution should be sprayed on "n
the early part of the day or so that
there will be time for it to dry before
a rain comes. If the lead arsenate
paste is used instead of the powder,
but two pounds to 50 gallons of water
with the same amount of quicklime.
Possibly an easier... and more conven
ient way of applying the lead where
there is no sprayer at hand is to dust
the lead arsenate powder on the
plants early in the morning or late in
the evening when the dew is on them.
Corn sacks, or cheese-cloth bags, flour
sacks, etc., can be used and shaken
over the vines so that the powder will
sift down on them. With each pound
of powder mix two pounds of air- j
slaked or nydrated lime. About two
pounds of the powder, or four pounds
of .the paste, will be required for each
acre. Zinc arsenate will answer in
the place of the lead arsenate. Also,
the velvet bean caterpillar has shown
up earlier than for several years and
may occasionally affect the yield of
the bean crop. The remedy for this
is the same as for the potato worm.
The time to cut beggarweed for hay
is when the head bunches to blorm.
Cut at this stage the hay is of a bet better
ter better quality and the second crop will
be heavier than if the bloom and seed
are allowed to form. Usually the crop
is permitted to grow too old, and
many of the lower leaves ,have shed
off and the stems become woody. The
best hay from any crop is always that
made the most quickly and with the
least exposure to sun and air. Too
much exposure to run bleaches the
hay and also makes it less palatable
and less digestible. Nearly all kinds
of hay should be put in windrows at
least the day after they are cut, and
some of the lighter ones in the cock.
Beggarweed should be raked into
windrows as soon as well wilted in
order to avoid the loss of leaves that
happens when handled too dry and
placed in cocks by the second day.
When the cock is well cured, even
though not absolutely dry in the mid middle,

The campaign carried on in thi3

the taxpayers into voting for at the
election next November. Col. Davis


Twenty Millions
Will the people of Florida stop and
think ? Will they calmly consider
what a bond issue, equal to five per
cent "of the total tax assessment of
the state at the time of issue" would
mean to the already overburdened
taxpayers of Florida. Yet that is
what it js proposed to allow the leg legislature
islature legislature to -do. If you vote "yes" in
the election next November on the
amendment to Section 6, Article IX
of the state constitution, you will
give the legislature that power. The
proposed amendment reads as fol follows:
lows: follows: t j
"Sec. 6. The legislature shall have
power to provide for issuing state
bonds only for the purpose of repell repelling
ing repelling invasion or suppressing insurrec insurrection;
tion; insurrection; or for the purpose of redeeming
or refunding bonds already issued at
a lower rate of interest, or for the
purpose of acquiring, building and
maintaining a system of good roads
and bridges throughout this state

under such regulations as may be

prescribed by an act of the legisla

ture; provided, that any bond issues
authorized in pursuance hereof for a

system of good roads and bridges

shall not exceed m amount five (5)

per cent of the total tax assessment

of the state at the' time of issue.
"Approved June 7, 1919."
Every conceivable argument is be

ing made now by the "good roads
people" to induce the voters of the

state to swallow that amendment

They tell you the interest on these

bonds and the sinking fund will be

paid by automobile owners or by a
tax on gasoline. We want to tell you
now that such assurances as there

are absurd. They will tell your fairy

stories about what other states are
"proposing" to do. They will sing

you siren songs about how it will

help the state. There are, of course,
many honest and even intelligent men
who will believe these things. There
are honest men who will urge you to

vote for this amendment. Back be

hind these honest men is a little

army of grafters. If this amendment
is adopted it will corrupt the politics

of Florida. If it becomes a part of

the constitution the legislatures, may
continue to issue bonds as they

please. Read the last line of the pro

posed amendment: "Five per cent of
the total tax assessment of the state,
at the time of issue." Any time all

Concerning Aerial Flights. 1
Air Commodore Edward Maltland of
Jt-34 fame, speaking at the Royal So Society
ciety Society of Arts, said that while flying
the Atlantic he retired about 9 a. m,
and he was ashamed to say he slept
until nine the next day. He found
that the air not only Induced sleep,
