SANTA IN SUMMER WEATHER
Howcome ? No sign of the jolly old
fellow yesterday. Well, he told you
so. -Why? Because he went to the
lake. As he was passing a certain
schoolhouse in a certain village whose
name begins with "O" and is the same
name as that "of one of the streets in
Ocala, he saw some, of the children,
wjth their teacher sitting on the green
grass (although it only lacks four
days ; of Christmas eve) eating their
lunch. So he sent one of his helpers
to ask thenv if, they would very much
like for Santa Claus to visit their
school that evening. And they said
"Yes" so loud the folks at the postof postof-fice
fice postof-fice must have heard thera. Well, well,
well. They had a visit from Santa
all right, and those boys and girls all
like the same kind of things that you
do: dolls and guns, etc; And they
sang one of their pretty fsongs and
what do you suppose it was? Why,
all about Santa's visit. Wasn't that
appropriate, and very suggestive,
too ? And they're all coming up .to
Ocala's civic Christmas tree on next
Saturday night just the: same as the
boys and girls from all around Ocala.
And you'll be there-sure.
How's the singing coming? Do you
know the carols well? And you're not
going to get thecroup, nor have bad
colds, are you? No, sir! We, all want
to be in good shape for singing that
Is there any body or girl who is not
going to hang up his-or her stocking
on Christmas eve? I hope not!
Fathers and mothers are Santa Claus'
helpers and so are other relatives and
friends of little children all the world
over, and they surely are going to do
a whole lot of helping this year in
order that all the kiddies may have a
sure .enough Merry Christmas.
Santa's money man at the Munroe
& Chambliss Bank, Mr. Griffin, has
( received checks and money which
brought the total up good and high

The members of the civic' commit committee

people have helped them help Santa
Claus, and it looks like they would
have money enough to buy all they
need, and maybe they might find
enough for just a small quantity of

THE HOLIDAY LAW
A NEEDED MEASURE
Dunn,? the war, the government,
not only thru its regular departments
but many bureaux founded for war
purposes, issued h flood of literature,
some of it necessary but a good dea
useless. The newspapers printed
nearly all then, free for nothing, be
cause it was no time to pick and
choose. It is evident that no one ex expected
pected expected the practice to continue any
longer than absolutely necessary.
However, the"" close of the war has
not cut off and but little reduced the
stream of printed argument that is
poured into newspaper offices with ev
ery mail. It looks to us as tho' most
of the newspapers have quit printing
the stuff; but it continues to be sent
to them. War literature being no
longer 'appropriate, "a lot of so-called
economic scientific, financial, agricul
tural and sociological : matter has
taken its place.
It seems to the Star1 that the news
papers should unite and make a sus
tained demand on Congress "that the
sending put; of this sort of literature
should be stopped. It costs anJ im
mense amount qfJ money; which the
taxpayers have "to sup ply :
The government, liike everything
else, in time of peace, when it. has
something it particularly wants to
bring to the attention of the public,
should do so by regular paid adver
t.oing. It would cost it less to pay
for advertising than to pay for the
paper and ink it js now throwing
away, and the advertising would gej
further than the bottom of the edi
tor's waste basket. V
Call this matter to the attention of
your senator and representative.
ARE THEY ALL LN ?
It seems as the Star goes out in the
county and the country at large, and
people read about the fund for the in
dustrial school Christmas tree, they
continue to send in the dollars, but as

, The boys and girls of the high
school, who went on a strike against
the abbreviation f their Christmas
holiday Moaylay, were under the im impression
pression impression that thoir school alone was
the victim of an unexpected regula regulation.
fn this they were mistaken. The
rule applies to all the public schools in
the state and is in compliance with the
following law, passed at the last meet meeting
ing meeting of the legislature:
"Sec. 6. (432). Vacation and Holi Holidays.:
days.: Holidays.: All public schools shall observe
the period from December 24th to
January 1, both days inclusive, "as a
vacation, and Independence Day and
Thanksgiving Day as holidays, and no
one of these days shall be counted as
taught in a teacher's monthly report."
It is reported : here that the school
boards of some other counties have
disregarded the law and given two
weeks' Christmas holiday as usual,
but .this of course would not excuse
the Marion school board, which has no
discretion in the matter.
We do not see any reason for this
new regulation. The children have al
ways had two weeks' holiday at Christ
mas, and we fail to see what argu argument
ment argument can be advanced for shortening
the time. The teachers who live in
other parts of the state will have in inadequate
adequate inadequate time to go home, rest and
return. Home school boys and girls
will -have to return to their studies
while those who gc to schools in
other states or colleges in this one
will have another week. The law" is
not a hardship but it is an useless
curtailment of the pleasure pf the
young folks at thi very time of the
year when a holiday means the most
; This law was not in response to
any popular demand in fact, the
people didn't know it was passed until
it was sprung on them. However, it
is the law, and the only thing school
children can do about it is to grow up
and try to send to the legislature men
who will repeal it and all the other
fool laws on the statute books.

I told Daddy what I had found.

We-were not kept very long in doubt
as to what the next enemy move was
to be. With the cessation of the tom tomtom

but we could hear him running from
post to pillar, sniffing at the cracks
and occasionally giving a whining
growl. Presently he begap to cough
and sneeze; then he came racing back
to us, flattening himself to hold his
nose to the crack under the door and
taking long breaths as if he were half
stifled. I stooped to pat him and Im Immediately

There appeared to be little enough
time for any defensive move. The as asphyxiating

every moment, and any search for its
source seemed utterly hopeless. Yet
we went at It, coughing ; and choking,
and stumbling over everything in the

he certainly deserved it) it was Bar Barney

enough light through cracks and crev crevices

to make our inner darkness a degree
or so less than Stygian. Missing the
dog for a moment at our common
breathing hole, we saw him circling a
particular spot in the floor and snarl snarling

At that we both remembered that
the shafthouse floor was raised a foot
or so from the rocky ledge on the
down-mountain side, and that the
space -underneath was partly open.
Daddy pointed to the circling dog.
"Barney's got it !" he panted
"They've run their chimney up uu'der

The ax was near at hand and I ran

was impossible to breathe it, and after
a few blows I had to drop the ax and
run to the breathing gap. Daddy took
his cue instantly, snatching up the ax
as I flung it down and hacking away
as long as he could hold his-breath.
When he was forced to make a. bolt
for the life-saving hole in the door, I
ran in again ; thus got a couple of the
floor planks loose and pried them out.
In the space beneath the open-
cracked floor we.., found Bullerton s

the bench below. From unearthing

didn't spring any more surprises on us
during my watch: and when I turned
the fortress over to Da"ddy at two
o'clock I was able to pass the "all

the blankets with an easy conscience.
I had "just dropped asleep, as it
seemed to me though in reality I had
slept like' a log for more than two
hours when Daddy Hiram came to
shake me awake.
"SoinethhV dofn',' he announced
quietly, and when I sat up I -saw that
the collie was moving uneasily from
one door to the other, stopping now

ears cocked and his head on one side:

broke in :
"Huh! It's plain enough for my old

Now the presence of a wagon on our
bench at this early hour in the morn morning

diametrically opposite things : Our
deliverance; or the upcoming of re reinforcements

not left long in doubt. Shortly after
the rack-rack of the wagon wheels
stopped we heard footsteps, and the
hair stiffened on Barney's back. Next
we heard Bullerton's voice, just out outside
side outside and apparently under our window
"Broughton !" the voice called ; "can
you hear me?"
"So well that you'd better keep out

"All right listen., Y'ou've got to get

"Yes," said I. "Tou brought the
new club up in a wagon, didn't you?"
He Ignored this.
"We could starve you out if we
chose to take the time. I know pretty
well what you've got to eat or rather

before, we've quit gentling you. That's
my last word."
For a time after this the silence,
and the darkness, since It was the hour
before dawn, were thick enough to be
cut with an ax. But the dog was
more restless than ever, and we knew
that something we could neither see
nor hear must be going on. After a
while I asked the question that had
been worrying me ever since I had
heard the wagon wheels.
