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 vexatious stamp taxes.
v When you go to a soda fountain
' you no longer will find Uncle Sam
holding out his hand for a penny on
each ten cents or fraction that you
pay the clerk for a drink or a plate
of ice cream.
If you want to sport a pair of
shoes costing more than $10 or a
shirt costing more than 3 you will

Whether you are single or married,
if you made a gain from the sale of
capital assets, such as a building or

received her education in the Baptist
church, at that time there being no

that purpose. On December 24, 18G7,

Mrs. Packham was an indefatigable
worker in the Baptist church, having!
been a teacher of one of the largest,
young ladies' Bibles classes in the!
city, which she taught for ten years.
She was alsova member of the board I
of directors of the Baptist, orphanage r
in Philadelphia.
In 1888 Mr. and Mrs. Packham;
moved to Spring Park, which was a!
flourishing little village at that time,:
and she took an active part in all of!

Mr. Dexter Phililps, to whose radio
receiving set we refered in a recent

ing following information about it:
"When I came home I brought some
of the wireless equipment that I had
while at school tn Atlanta. Just a
simple little receiving set so I could
let the home folks listen to the broad broadcasting

Electric Company at Pittsburgh, Pa.,
known in radio parlance as KDKA.
On last Sunday night (Dec. 25), we

of that.

a range of from 20 to SO miles. How
did I hear it Don't nsk me. I sup suppose

usual. I have heard this, set four,

"I also heard another set in At Atlanta,

not the usual code or key wireless. I
hear hundreds of them in code every

"Most people think that wireless is
a kid's game but -when men like Mc

men of like type and calibre enter the

good many of .these 'kids' "would be

Another similar instance occurred at
Torrens, in the Isie of Mull, in which

common in tropbal countries. In

the fishes are living, more frequently
they are dead, and sometimes dry or

Urbana, 111., Jan. 2. There seems
to be little basis for the belief that
coins bear any close relation to the
spread of disease, according to an an announcement
nouncement announcement made at the University
of Illinois here by Drs. Charlotte B.
Ward and Fred W. Tanner, of the
university, following a series of tests
made by the two.
"Coins of the lower denominations
were examined for the types of bac bacteria
teria bacteria which exist on them," says their
report. "It has often been stated that
money is a very dangerous article of
commerce since it is handled by all
sorts of persons and because it usual usually
ly usually moves so quickly from one person
to another. It has also been stated
that cashiers and others whose voca vocations
tions vocations require them to handle money in
larger quantities than the average
person, might be more susceptible to
disease btu this does not seem to be
the case. It seems that, the very
metals from which the coins are made
act to destroy the batceria which
reach the coins. In the study only
the more resistant of batceria, the
spore-forming bacteria, were found.
This indicates that money need not
be feared for batceria cannot live
long on it. These findings, however,
do not justify holding coins in the
mouth while the hands are serving
other purposes."
