We should judge by' the conduct of

tion. question. The letter follows: -A
Editor Star: A glance at the sta statistics
tistics statistics will show that the suffragette
who is now about to wield the gavel,
and put the world into line, must start
at home, and by the expression "at
home" we mean .at home, right here
in Ocala, in Florida, everywhere in
the United States.
. For the first eight months of this
year, there has been commenced in
the circuit court of Marion county,
on the chancery side, 103 cases, of
which 57 were divorce cases, and the
remaidder were for foreclosure, par partition
tition partition injunction, quieting title, and
a few other minor affairs. In other
w&rds, more than 55 per cent, of the
business of the chancery court is
given aver to the divorce evil.
Up to the 30th of thi3 month, there
was filed in the clerk's office 25 cases,
of which 14 were divorce cases, six
mortgage foreclosures, one injunction,
one partition, for for quieting title,
and one for the adoption of a child.
This is a ratio of nearly three to
two, notwithstanding, this has been
the warmest month of the year, and
probably the warmest August we
have had in ten years. Just why
oug and Mary didn't come here we
6an't understand, for Reyno can't
beat this. r-r.i-'' '"t ".;'v-" .'"
During 'the same eight months,
there has been granted in this county
279 marriage licenses; there was
granted during the month of August,
that is up to the 30th, 32 license,
which makes an. average of one to
every five for the first eight months,
and one to every 2 for the month
I So far as we can ascertain, this has
been a banner year for divorces, and
if our information is correct, the
proportion here is much less than in
other centers; thus" in Tampa, we are
informed that the ratio of divorces
is .almost one to every three mar marriages,
riages, marriages, and the same is probably true
of Jacksonville, Miami and Pensa Pensa-cola.
According to records, about 65 per
cent of these divorce suits are
brought by women, and only about 15
per cent of them are litigated, that
is, defended, so that the records are
usually short, and in many places
the suit is filed, the answer with it,
and the divorce is granted at the
same time. The average time of get getting
ting getting a divorce in this state is less than
thirty days, any in many instances
less than thirty minutes.
- Therefore, our voting sisters should
begin on this problem, as they can
aid in many ways, first by making the
causes of divorccless, and second, by
adopting, some more discouraging
means of sepaartion than thirty min minutes
utes minutes court proceeding, and a twenty
dollar,, lawyer's fee.
No one, wre think, who has made
it a study, would for an instant ap approve
prove approve of repealing the divorce laws;
they are as old as any historical re record,
cord, record, and since the .days of Moses
have been recognized as a part of the
judicial system, but we seriously
doubt if Moses would have ever writ written
ten written it into his laws if he had for a
moment thought that it would be
perverted as it is today. With an
average ratio of twenty-five per cent
of the marriages resulting in divorces,
we think our incoming sisters, to
who we must soon turn over the ship
of state, should take somff stern
measure to at least curb the run on
the divorce courts.

21 just 'issued, the seagoing tonnage
of .the United States apart from
Great Lakes shipping, has increased
since 1914 by over 500 per cent and
now stands at 12,406,000 tons. Thus
the United States comes second only
to the United .- Kingdom which has
18,111 tons. ; :
Japan, which in 1914 took sixth
place, is now third, with 2,996,000
tons, closely followed by France, with
2,963,000 tons. ;
Including sailing ships, not ex
cluding tonnage on the Great Lakes,
the United States now has 24 per cent
ofthe world's tonnage, as against
4.7 per cent six years ago, the regis
The figures shown for the formerly
belligerent countries include -a con
siderable amount of, enemy tonnagfe
provisionally allocated to those coun
tries. Germany. which m 1914 oc
cupied, after the United Kingdom,
the first position with over 5,000,000
tons of shipping, now orly owns 419,-
The steam tonnage owned by the
principal maritime countries ; in June,
1920, totalled 53.905,000, an increase
or 8,501,000 tons as compared with
June 1914; but it is computed that
the world s net loss .m shipping thru
the war, taking into account the sus
pension of normal shipbuilding .activi
ties, amounts to 3,516,000 tons.
There is a reduction in sailing ton
nage .since pre-war days of 614,000
tons, a much smaller decerase than in
any previous six-year period and
doubtless accounted for, says the reg
ister, by the shortage of other ton
nage having given new life to the
construction of sailing vessels. Th
United States, the only county which
has increased sailing tonnage since
1914, now owns over 43 per cent or
the world's sailing tonnage,
