LAW WAS NOT LUCID
Consequently Recorder Imposed the
Lightest Fine Possible on
Involved in the milliners' case be
fore the city recorder yesterday and
his mornings is the question as to
whether or-not the milliners that have
been coming to Ocala for several sea
sons for brief periods should pay the
icense of a merchant, or the license
of an itinerant vendor. The recorder
decided that the milliners coming here
to do business but for a brief period
were itinerant vendors, the license
tax for which is $50. The two millin
ers charged with doing business with
out this license were fined $2 and
costs. They had taken out a merch
ant's license, which amounts to $5 for
the first $1000 of stock, and $1.50 for
ach additional $1000 of stock.
The question, in its larger sense, is
whether or not anyone conducting a
business here for a brief period, com competing:
peting: competing: with permanent merchants,
should pay a larger tax. It is a ques
tion as to whether the permanent
merchant should be favored.
The two milliners held to be itiner
ant vendors appear to have had diffi
culty in finding out just what license
they should pay. There seems to
lave been no way to determine wheth
er they were itinerant vendors except
by going to court. This done the mil-
iners in the case say that it is not
worth their while to stand the cost of
The question was brought to an is
sue by the '( local milliners, who in insisted
sisted insisted on the officers taking action.
The local milliners say they do notn
think it is right that when they stay
here the year round, and help bear
the public burdens, that anyone
should come in from the out side,
pay. a nominal fee and then skim the
cream off the- business. They take
the same position, in fact, that the lo local
cal local merchants take toward peddlers.
It is regrettable, however, that the
visiting milliners could not have been
informed of the exact bearing of the
law before they were subjected to the
inconvenience and expense of legal
action. Both these ladies have many
friends here,-who greatly regret the
annoyance they have had.

Shady school houses could think we
were unappreciative of our new school
building. For thirty years schools
were taught out here in old churches,
gin houses and anywhere except a,

this neighborhood gave the county a
deed to one acre of land for a school
house to be built on and a few patrons
put up a small house at their own ex
pense, which was the first real school
house we ever had and this was too
small. A little over two years ago the
county granted us a new building
which is the first and only thing ever
given Shady school by the county.

Marshal Carter, who has been
working vigorously to raise money for
the benches on the courthouse square,
has collected about two-thirds of the
necessary amount. He needs only a
few dollars more, and all who haven't
contributed should come across. These
benches are much needed, not only for
visitors from the county, but by our
own people. Ocala is the only town
of its size we know that has not seats
in such a public place as the court courthouse

dozen years have we heard comment
from our citizens and the country peo people

not legitimate. The scheme is to ad advertise

tographs photographs or descriptions of another
section "near by"; the "near by" be being

plan is misleading, and especially so
in view of the fact that the geography

The Star recently told of a land de
velopment in South Florida being ad
vertised with a photograph of Mar
ion county hay stacks. The hay was
not the kind named in the caption
under the picture. The other day the
Leesburg Commercial printed a long
article on the Muclan farms, pointing
out that the farms were near Lees
burg, but neglecting to state that
Muclan is in Marion county, and not
Lake county, and nearer Ocala than
Leesburg. As a result, some of the
largest papers in the state have re reprinted

either in part or in its entirety, and
have referred to the Muclan farms
as being in Lake county, although
just a few days before the same pap
ers had printed articles about the
farms being in Marion county.
In 'a way, these things are a compli
raent to Marion county. They are
certainly not complimentary to any
other section. But these methods of
publicity are not good. They must of
necessity prove to be a boomerang in
the lone: run.
Editor Star: All things considered
T think it is about time I was getting
a furlough. There was nothing of any
special importance going on and a
limited number of furloughs were be
ing granted, so just after the oc
currences related in my last number
took place (excepting of course, what
I wrote about Town Creek, my capture
and Sam's going home) I concluded 1
would put in an application for one
and see what would come of it. I did
so, and it went through the usua
spool of red tape and in due time
came back with so many endorse
ments on it that I was glad I started
it out on a full sized sheet of .paper
The endorsements were all "approv
als" however and when it was handed
to me a real thrill of genuine pleas
ure and happiness ran all through my
system when I examined it and found
that I held in my. hands a documen
which enabled me to anticipate ten
days of delightful enjoyment up a
the dear old home with father, mother
and other members of the family.
none of whom I had seen for fifteen
or sixteen months. Of course you
know that I thought out and planned
a great many things that I would do
during those ten days in which
would be free from army duties, army
rations- and army associations with
"men only," especially the latter, for
don't you know I was anxious to see
swet,-lovely female faces once more;
and particularly those of therrr that
were near and dear to me. So my
mind was running and turning out
things like a long reel at "a movie
show, displaying things I intended to
do, people I expected to see and oh
a whole lot of things that would
have filled up twenty days let alone
the ten that I expected to crowd them
into. But it was good to think abou
thenj even if in the realization I fail
ed to bring them all within the scope
of ten days, so I let the reel of my
mind run on and on while I was get
ting ready to leave the camp and
after I got on my way and all along
on the journey homeward. Once fair
ly on the way the train seemed to
move so slowly and it stopped so often
and stayed so long at all the inter
mediate stations; and the -. engines
were wood-burners in those days, and
stopped at wood-racks along the road
to take on wood,- and it took so long
to fill up the tender, and the water
tanks were not always at the stations
or at the wood-racks, and they stop
ped at the tanks for water, and it just
seemed to me that they could have
half drained the ocean while they took
on a few thousand gallons, but by and
by the train crossed the Edisto river,
the dearest stream in all the world to
me, and I know that the next station
was where I would get off ''Midway!
All off for Midway!" the brakeman
shouted as we neared the station. 1
did not wait a minute but arose from
the seat and went out on the platform
and was ready, to step off before the
train came to a dead stop. Well, I
was off at Midway, but still four miles
from the dear old homestead, so what
next? No one at home knew I was
coming, as I had not time to write
after I knew my furlough was ap approved,
proved, approved, so no one met me. I looked
around a little to se if I could see
any one from over in the old neigh neighborhood,
borhood, neighborhood, but saw no one. I did not
waste time looking about, for a four four-mile'
mile' four-mile' hike was nothing to me then, so
I lit out for home in a good soldierly
swing, knowing that I could easily
make it in an hour or less but I did
not do it, for in passing the home of
Capt. Bill Zeigler he saw and halted
me, and came out to the road and ask asked
ed asked me many questions about people
he knew who were in the army and
camped near us, and he made special
inquiry about John Autley and told
me what John had written his people
to send him -among other things
sausages and told me how John
spelled the word, but I shall not at attempt
tempt attempt to repeat the captain's words
or his manner of telling it, for it is
utterly impossible in written words to
convey to another the slightest idea
of his manner and peculiar intonation
in telling that or any other amusing
incident, anecdote or story, for in al
most every respect he was a charac
ter sui generis. To hear him tell about
the sausages, or relate any story or
occurrence, was always very amus
ing, so that while I chafed at the de-
ay I cannot say that I did not enjoy
the ten or fifteen minutes halt that 1
spent with him. I moved on and did
not pause again until I came to the!
ong bridge Cannon's which span-!
ned the South Edisto river which then
separated Barnwell from Orangeburg
county. The bridge was built of cy cypress
press cypress timber and lumber, compara comparatively
tively comparatively new and splendidly constructed,
and in spanning the main stream was
one hundred yards long. When I
reached the middle of the bridge I
just had to stop and look at this beau
tiful stream and watch its rippling
waters winding its way to the sea,
curving and recurying between the
growth of magnificent trees and
shrubs and flowering vines which
marked the river's bounSs on each
flowers were at their best along the
shores, late of an afternoon when the

stream it is! How I loved it then and
how I love it now; the delightful
memories associated with it the fish
ing, the bathing, the hunting that 1
enjoyed so much along thy shores and
upon thy rolling waters sweet Edisto!
Whenever I think of or hear the lines
in the "Old Oaken Bucket," "How dear
to my heart are the scenes of my
childhood," you, my dear old river,
form a prominent feature in memory's
gallery. Father had a splendid boat
o nthe river, "Blue Junietta" and in
the springtime, when the gorgeous
sunbeams, soft and yellow, glinted
through the leaves of the forest, and
birds of brilliant plumage chirped
their vesper songs as they flitted
from bough to bough, to sit in this
boat and drift down this lovely river
was a soul-sooth'ing delight as charm charmingly
ingly charmingly sweet and ecstatic as a poet's
dream. When I think now of the
many times I have enjoyed this en
chanting pastime, the song of my
"Oh! would I were a boy again,
When life seemed formed of sunny
And all my heart then knew of pain
Was wept away in transient tears."
The memory of those hallowed days

vening years like a solitary star on

alas'v alas! this magnificent bridge
and the beautiful Blue Junietta were
wafitonly destroyed when Sherman's
army crossed the Edisto river at that
place, but thank God they could
neither steal nor burn the dear old
river. And now I must go on or my
furlough will be out before I reach the
dear old home, for although as soon
as I step off of the bridge I will be on
my father's domain, still I will be a
mile and a half from the oak border

And now presto! Open your eyes! I
am there, and dear me! the joy and

by the loved ones whose presence
there made sacred every tile and
every hearthstone in the dear old
home. Well, it goes without saying,
that I did not go, see or do half that
I had mapped out during the time I
had on furlough, but you can put it
down as a fact that I thoroughly en
joyed every minute of it. Now I am
going to tell you of one place I went
and what I saw although I frankly
acknowledge that I lack the art of
portraying the scene and what oc occurred
curred occurred in such a manner as to bring
out the various points in all of their
amusing particulars, but "such as I
have give I unto thee." Notwith
standing the large number of men
that had gone into service, the state
still required those at home between
the ages of 17 and 50 to do military
service and keep up the militia com companies
panies companies and to drill twice in each
month. It so happened that one of
the regular drill days in the beat tak
ing in the country around our home
came on while I was on my furlough,
and I determined to go to the "muster
ground" and see how these" "reserv
ists" were progressing towards "pre
parednesS." When the day came I set
out and in due time arrived at the
gathering place and found quite a
number already there. By 10 o'clock,
the hour for the drilling to begin,
some fifty or sixty militiamen were
there for duty. The drill ground was
an open old field still under fence but
had not been cultivated for severa
years, but the last time it was culti cultivated
vated cultivated it had been. planted in corn and
the old corn rows were plainly in evi
dence. A large gate opened into the
field and just outside was a large um
biageous oak and under it was a wel
of cool, sparkling water. The men
were not uniformed (except the com
missioned officers) and were dressed
in clothes of all kinds of cuts and
colors and armed with all kinds of
firearms double-barreled and single
barreled shotguns, long-barreled squir squirrel
rel squirrel rifles, some few old flintlocks and
a very few, more modern, percussion
cap shot guns. The officers wore uni
forms but I do not remember the
color now, but they were profusely
ornamented with brass buttons and
the hats liberally supplied with white
and blue feathers. Capt. J com
manded the company He was a good
man, highly respected citizen. The
tactics used was not the same as that
used by the Confederate army," but
was "Gillam's." The hour having ar
rived the men wnt into the field and
the captain sung out, "Fall in menf
Fall in!" "In two two ranks." Im
mediately the men began to get into
line but without regard to height or
size, but mixed and tangled up into a
crooked, ragged line that had more
the appearance of a scraggly hedge
fence than a line of soldiers. The
alignment did not suit the captain and
he ordered them to form along in one
of the alleys of the old corn rows
which they proceeded to do. He then
ordered the rear rank to "advance
backwards" one step as he was going
to pract'ee them Li the manual of
arms and it "would give them more
room for their guns." Having thus
arranged them he proceeded to put
them through the manual of arms as
per Gillam. Of course even well
drilled soldiers could not do them
selves justice with such arms as the
militia had, and criticism of them
would be unkind, but at the same time
it was highly amusing to see them try.
Then the captain undertook to march
them by company front and to wheel
by company, to break into platoons,
and some other movements. Of course
they could not keep in line or keep
step and the rear rank trod on the
front rank's heels, but they tried, arid
mussed around in the hot sun for
nearly an hour before the captain
halted them to rest. Then it was that
some of the men said they were
thirsty and suggested that the captain
march them out through the gate to
the well so they could get water. To
this he assented and called the com
pany to "Attention!" "Shoulder arms!"
"Right face!" "Forward march!" This
they proceeded to do, but they were
not headed for the gate, and so the
captain gave first one. command and
then another, and another, but each
move they made they failed to hit the
gate, and at last the captafn in con
fusion and despair sand out "File
right, men! and by gosh if you don't
hit the gate so out anyhow." And
they did, and breaking ranks around
the well ended the drill. They joked
and laughed and asked me many ques
tions about service at the front, etc.,
and then dispersed to their respective
homes and I did likewise.
But the spirit of the revolution was.
in those militiamen and the blood of
the forefathers ran in their veins, and
later on in the war many of that same
company did fine rervice for tJieir
country and some of them gave their
lives for the cause.
