of the country. There is no bickering
between townspeople and rural resi
dents, as is often the case. The farm farmers
ers farmers for miles around feel perfectly free
to go to town without wearing starch
ed. shirts and collars. There is an air
of mutual interest between town and
country which would gladden the heart
of any rural life expert. The reason
for this Is that the town Is owned by
the farmers themselves.
When he goes to town to buy a bar of
soap or a new plow the farmer buys of
himscff or rather he is a partner In the
store. When he goes to the elevator he
sells to his company the grain he has
brought in. Terhaps his next stop will
be at a bank owned and managed by
the farmers themselves.
The town is named Fernald. All of
Its business enterprises are owned by
farmers living within a radius of three
or four miles. Though built fourteen
years ago, when the railroad was built,
Fernald has a population of only 100
and probably will not grow much
larger In the years to come, because of
the nearness of numerous other towns.
But this does not mean that Fernald
does, not expect to grow and prosper,
for the farsighted farmers who own
the town do practically all of theii

until about two years ago that' it was
purchased by a group of farmers op

fanner who put through the deal, was
made manager of the elevator. The to'

first year under the new management
the elevator paid a profit of 95 per cent

Both French and German are the

Public signs, such as those of rail

Italian is also spoken in those parts of
Switzerland which are closest to Italy.
As a matter of fact, the country is,
however, quite definitely divided as to
language. The cantons of Yaud, Neii-

Editor Star: In a recent issue of
the Star you stated that nine feet was
too narrow a roadbed for two vehicles
to pass each other. Correct you are.
The standard tread is 5 feet 2 inches
for a vehicle, wheelbase, to say noth
ing for the extension of hubs. There
was something said about "heavy tax
ation." It has suddenly occurred to
some of you that everything was not
lovely and the goose was not hanging
high. Perhaps the old bird is losing
her honk. It seems like some of the
"boys" have been dropping spikes in
the bonding machine. Well, boys,
throw them in and if you are out of
spikes just pass the word down the
line and we will look around in the
woods out here and find an old rail
left by a logroad and we will throw it
in and strip several cogs off the ma
In spite of the fact. that times are
hard and Marion county is heavily in
debt there seems to be a disposition on
the part of some to have the county
bonded for a half to a million dollars
for hard roads. 'No advocate of the
bond issue has given a good, valid
reason for bonding the county and
what real benefit the masses of the
people will receive, from it. They cite
the fact that Polk county has been
bonded for one and a half million dol
lars. Well, the people of Polk county
have put themselves in bondage. Do
we have to put ourselves in bondage
just because the people of Polk county
did ? A million and a half dollars is a
large debt for a state to contract, let
alone a county doing such a thing.
A wealthy and well known citizen
of Marion made these remarks to me
last spring: "Hard roads are expen
sive.-The state will soon own all the
lands. You cannot sell twenty-five
bushels of potatoes in Ocala."
The above citizen Is a very large
land owner and is no calamity howler,
but is rather optimistic in his views.
When the controversy about forming
a new county was at its height advo
cates for the new county claimed that
Marion county would be heavily bond bonded.
ed. bonded. Is not their prophecy about to
come true? The only reason it does
not come true, is by the people voting
it down. The opposition claimed, on
account of a small railroad mileage
in the proposed ne,w county, that the
brunt of taxation would fall heavily
upon the farmer. Has any bond ad
vocate said anything about the taxes
on the farmer in case of the bond is issue?
sue? issue? No; they have been as silent as
oysters about the matter.
What are these asphalt roads to be
built for? Not for the farmers to haul
their produce to Ocala on, for Ocala
has little or no market for farm pro produce.
duce. produce. A party at a fourth of July pic picnic
nic picnic this year made the remark that
"asphalt pavement in the northern
cities lasted ten years." That being
the case, Marion county would prob
ably have about one-half of the bond
ed indebtedness paid and a lot of
broken uf asphalt roads on its hands
that would not be fit to travel upon at
the end of the ten years.
Farmers last year sold corn in
Ocala at 50 to 57 cents per bushel,
while the St. Louis market reports
were from 69 to 72 cents per bushel
for white corn. After the Marion
county farmers sold their corn for
over twenty per cent less than the St
Louis market prices, they found upon
going to pay their 1915 taxes that
taxes were over 20 per cent higher
than they were in 1914. We farmers
