It's the Star's opinion that the
British government, having, broken
the Sinn Fein hunger strike, should
pardon the misguided men in Cork
jail and let them go home as soon
as it is safe to move them. They
have suffered enough to pay for what
ever offense they, : have, committed.
And we hope that there are at least
some men among the leaders of the
Sinn Fein or "Irish Republic" that are
beginning. to realize that the civilized
world despises them for instructing
men to undergo ordeals that they will
not endutfe themselves. (
Near Lakeland Saturday night a
policeman made, a raid on a party, of
negroes who were having a crap
game. One of the negroes tried to
put the light out, and the' officer shot
him; inflicting a serious, perhaps fatal
wdund. "The Star is steadfastly op
posed to, gambling," but it thinks any
thing like this is "an outrage. There
are hundreds of white men in Flor
ida, who sit down, almost every night,
in their homes for friendly games of
cards, with-a small ampunt of money
to, as-they say, add interest to the
game, and ho officer thinks of inter
fering, let alone breaking in the
house and shooting one of them.

THE FARMERS' PREDICAMENT
Editor Star: This morning rain
prevents my being out in the opes, so
will kill a little time by asking you
and your readers a few questions.
The last United States crop report
said that the average price the pea peanut
nut peanut grower received for his peanuts
from 1912 to 1919, .was four cents per
pound for the lowest grade and 14
cents per pound for the highest.
One of the largest shippers of piea-
nuts in Marion county told me recent-
y that the oil mills, the largest users
of Florida peanuts, were offering but
two cents a pound for peanuts. This
is1 but' one-sixth as much as some pea peanuts
nuts peanuts sold for last year, one-half as
much as .the lowest average price re received
ceived received in seven years.
Here is the question I want you or
your readers to answer: If Florida
peanuts are worth but two cents per
pound to the grower, why is peanut
butter worth 35 cents per pound to
Another question, please: Why is
Florida beef quoted at 5 cents per
pound in Jacksonville and the beef
market quotes steers at 16 cents per
pound in Chicago and New York" and
beefsteak sells at 35 cents per pound
in Ocala to the consumer?
Tell me why, the hog grower is of
fered but ten cents per pound for his
hogs and the Ocala consumer pays
for cured hog meat from 35 cents to
60 cents per pound?
Why are cow hides worth to the
farmer but four cents per pound, and
ccw hides made into shoes are worth
from $1 to $6 per pound, to the con
sumer? Why does the wool grower re
ceive almost nothing for his wool and
the consumer pays from $1 to $6 per
pound for wool made into clothes ?
Mr. Editor, as a farmer, shall I
plant or not plant under the present
conditions? If T plant I lose: if I do
not plant I gain.
Mr. Editor, there are millions of
farmers in my fix. -If we refuse to
plant or plant but little, what will the
consumer ao lor tne want oi some something
thing something to eat and wear and what will
the middleman and profiteer do and
the United States government get its
income taxes from?
Mr. Editor, please tell us farmers
what and how to do under the present
conditions. L. S. light.

Now is a fine time for hog raisers
to imDrove their herds. The hard
luck of the breeder of pure-bred hogs
is the opportunity of the man who
srrows meat hoes. Sales of blooded
hogs have dropped to a Jow level in
keening with the price of, market
hogs and in many cases have brought
very little more than meat hogs
Breeding stock can be bought cheaper
right now than will be possible next
spring and summer, we think, and
every farmer who needs improvement
in his herd should take advantage of
the low prices. True, he may think
it is a poor time to invest money in
good breeding stock under such, un
profitable market conditions as ex exist
ist exist at present, but he will find it
easier to keep his production cost of
pork down by using good livestock
than by keeping scrubs. Also, we
think, now is a better time for start starting
ing starting in the pure-bred hog business
than one and two years ago. The man
that buys at present prices will not
hive much more invested in his herd
of hogs than he can get out of them
Lime is plentiful in Marion county
under the ground and in some places
cn top. 'But much the larger part of
the farm lands would be improved by
an application of ground lime rock.
Every where lime rock is known to
be jonly a few feet below the sur
face, the top soil "may be lacking in
this element. Lime easily wasnes
out of the soil and may need to .be
replaced on fields that are supposed
to be well supplied because lime rock
is known to be nearby. While not
required by most crops as a fertilizer,
its, value is in the sweeting effect it
has on the soil. With peanuts, tho
it is a real fertlizer and will prove
profitable for this crop on all lands
except those that have it present in

Value to Investors." 7
Cattle loan companies have aided the industry in the west during
the past 10 to 15 years. They have all been financially successful and the
stocks very closely held. Many companies have been organized by bank
directors in order to meet requirements which the banks were unable to
care for. They have paid large returns to stockholders and the stocks
are readily, marketable at good' premium.
, The state of Florida possesses climatic and other conditions more
favorable to cattle raising than any western state, and the establishment
of this company means the consistent development of one of the largest
industries in the state. Four-fifths of the acreage of the state is better
adapated at -the present time to this interest than to any other line of ag agriculture.
