MARION HAS MOVED
The prospects of this strike show
that Marion county and Ocala have
moved forward considerably in twen twenty

strike would have meant starvation.
So far since then has farming and
stockraising progressed that it will
only mean inconvenience.

If a strike comes on Monday it will
find Ocala well prepared. Many other
cities will find it more difficult b
withstand the hardships of a railroad

foodstuffs here. The light and water
plants can run as long as the supply

there will be no shortage of packing.
Neither plant uses coal. The light
plant is operated with wood as fuel,
and the pumps at the water works are
operated with current from the light
plant. The steam pumps at the wa

about three weeks now, but in case
of necessity the steam pumps can.be

C. W. Hunter, general manager of

that he would be able to supply gas
for at least six weeks. A car of coal
and a car of oil have just been re

Information reached Live Oak this
week to the effect that an exciting
incident occurred in Jasper last Sat Saturday
urday Saturday while Rev. S. J. Catts was mak making
ing making a speech in his campaign for gov
ernor. Mr. Catts was speaking in the
open air and there was a good crowd
out to hear the address. In his speech
Mr. Catts discussed the recounts of
the ballots that had taken place in
Madison, Suwanee and Hamilton
counties. He is said to have charged
that the ballots had been tampered
with and that there was evidence to
that effect and that the evidence im implicated
plicated implicated a friend or attorney of Hon.
W. V. Knott. Mr. Catts made his re remarks
marks remarks so pointed that Col. I. J. Mc McCall,
Call, McCall, a prominent member of the" Jas Jasper
per Jasper bar, halted him and asked if he
referred to him. Mr. Catts paused
and replied that the report around the
state was to that effect. Mr. McCall
then said: "You or any other person
that says that I have tampered with
any ballots is a liar."
The atmosphere grew tense and Mr.
Catts replied to the effect that he did
not generally take the epithet applied
and did not know that he would do
so then. Mr. McCall replied that it
was up to Mr. Catts; that he (Mr.
Catts) had heard what he (McCall)
said. Mr. Catts replied that he would
take it and went on with his speech.

CALLS FOR CORRECTIONS
Editor Star: Heretofore in printing
my reminiscences there were so few
errors that I just "let it go at that,"
but in the number appearing in yes yesterday's
terday's yesterday's issue there were quite a
number and of a character that I
must ask that you correct in today's
i:?sue. Kindly publish the following
In writing of Mueller's band which
was mustered into service with the
Eutaw regiment I wrote "all of them
were Germans except two," while you
print "all of them were farmers ex except
cept except two." This would be a little re remarkable
markable remarkable as they all lived in Charles Charleston
ton Charleston and were an organized band of
more than state-wide, reputation as
excellent musicians for some years
before the war. Writing of Salter's
proficiency as a drummer I wrote he
could about make it talk in "seven"
languages, while it is printed "sev "several"
eral" "several" languages. I wrote John Gal Gal-way
way Gal-way was bugler for the Edisto Rifles
both- in training and in the fights
"and" he had the advantage of the
others of the band in the frays, whils
it is in print "as" he had, etc. I
wrote it was a tremendous advantage
for us to drill as skirmishers by the

commands from the voice of the offi
cer, but with the bugler by his side
and the "commands" given to him,
etc., while you print and the "sum

mons" is not a very tactical word. In
another place the print is "viw
which should be "vim." You have
"Legaire" when it should be "Legare"
and "Kennedy" when it should be
"Kennedy," "Medicis" for "MedicusJ
This is the first time when there
have been typographical errors of
sufficient importance for me to re
quest you to correct them, in fact
there have been but very few errors
heretofore of any kind and I am lei
to think that you are letting Catts
and that Cash suit interfere with
your proof-reading. Don't worry. You
remember I told you I edited a paper
myself once for a year and at the
end of the year broke the corporation
and reduced the circulation and ad

half just by one editorial, but not be
cause there were any misprints in it,
but because it was the truth and
sharper than any two-edged sword

NIGHTINGALES ON FIRING LINE
Will Irwin Hears the Sweet Song of
the Bird Blending With Sound
of Guns. J
We" were quartered on an artillery
officer, on the Isonzo front. -Outside, it
was a spring night of the poets. The
moon had come up like a great drop of
honey. No gun was firing, for once.
"They sometimes shell a position up
yonder," said the artillery officer as we
walked along. "I only hope I shan't
be wakened by whir-boom!"
We were silent for a while after
that ; and suddenly, in a thicket on the
right, a bird song burst out a song
so lusty, so wonderfully sweet, that I
stopped in my tracks.
"Nightingale," said our lieutenant.
Much as I had read concerning the
singer of the dewy meads, I had never
heard him before he, ; the bird of
ivoets and lovers. He sang like our
own meadow larks of California, but
higher, sweeter and infinitely stronger.
We had walked on and on, hundreds of
yards, before I stopped again. I could
still hear him plainly ; and another one,
far down the glen, was answering.
I woke twice that night and listened
for the sound of guns. There they
we're, only very far away. But the
nightingale was singing still, near and
loud. Will Irwin, in Saturday Eve
