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.

have observed that Benjamin is very
careful to give Lake county all credit

county justice when he speaks of the
county line running "right thru the

by this he leads the reader to infer
that the county line run3 right thru

Mr. Walter Ray of Mattel was visit
ing his Ocala friends Monday- and
looking ever more hale and hearty
and cheerful than usual. Mr. Ray is
one of our captains of industry; and
always stays with his men on the fir
ing line. He has done much to relieve
the hard times caused by the war by
resuming the operations of his big
sawmill, and keeping it going in spite
of the rather adverse conditions of the
lumber business. The Ocala and
Southwestern railroad, of which Mr.
Ray is the presiding genius, and which
at its beginning was only a log road,
but -which is now a well built and
equipped line, is bound, in our opinion,
at a near date, to. aid materially in
the development of this entire section,
and give our city another important
connection with the southwest portion
of the state. In addition to his big
lumber business andrai!road, Mr. Ray
is a progressive agriculturist. His
large farm at Martel is not only self
sustaining, but is an experiment sta station
tion station of the most practical sort, Mr.
Ray never missing an opportunity to
see what can be done in improving
crops and stock. Mr. -Ray. is deeply
concerned in the prosperity of Ocala,
where he has large interests. He owns
a quarter of the square just south of
the postoffice, and when the war is
over and business picks up, it is be
lieved by some of his friends that he
will erect upon it a four-story office
building of the most modern design.
The Star has been for years Mr. Ray's
favorite paper, and when he puts up
his new building we confidently ex
pect that he will offer -the Star space
in it at greatly reduced rates, in order
that his personal friend, the editor,
who is growing older and more feeble
every day, won't have to walk so far
for his mail.

Editor Star: Many of our intelli intelligent
gent intelligent fellow-citizens seem to arrogate
to themselves the possession of a
keener sense of justice in judging of
the merits of litigation than i3 pos possessed
sessed possessed by any judge, who may read
the law with care and listen to the
sworn evidence. Such people are gen generally
erally generally quite content to found their
judgments upon partisan assertions,
not made under oath, and they usually
arrive at a very satisfactory conclus conclusion
ion conclusion long before any actual evidence is
taken; for the very obvious reason
that the party to the suit who fears
for the merits of his case has every
incentive to becloud the issues by
false assertions, and to impugn the
honor of the judge who must give
judgment. Using the term "Techni "Technicalities"
calities" "Technicalities" with the generally accepted
meaning, we are all agreed that it
speaks well for the honor of any man
to manifest a desire to waive all tech
nicalities that may be in his favor in
the adjustment of differences, but
frequently technicalities are strongly
interwoven with merit; nor is it for us
to suppose that the judges and the
juries are any less anxious to do jus justice
tice justice than we are. It is well for every
man to hope to do his neighbor jus justice;
tice; justice; it is better for him really to be believe
lieve believe that he -can do his neighbor jus
tice, but if such belief ripens into a
delusion it is apt to sweep him to dan dangerous
gerous dangerous lengths. Beware of espousing
the cause of any man who not only
fears one judge but who condemns all
judges, and who calls upon you in
advance of proper inquiry to prejudge
in hs favor.
While this warning may apply to
Mr. Catts, it is not an invention of
mine brought forward to get votes
for Mr. Knott, but it announces a
very ancient and a very safe rule that
it would be well to follow in any civ civilized
ilized civilized country in the world that holds
rank in honor and intelligence above
that of the Turks.
But it is said that the courts are
controlled by technicalities. To this
I reply: So was Martin Luther in in
augurating his fight on Catholicism,
and in bringing on the great Reforma Reformation,
tion, Reformation, which is responsible for the re religious
ligious religious faith of Mr. Catts as well as
that of the most of us. Our chances
to escape the pains of hell rest on a
But for the very fine spun techni
calities of Luther there would prob
ably be no Baptists, no Methodists, no
Episcopalians, and in short, no Prot
estants to "protest."
In the present status of affairs Mr.
Catts resembles Martin Luther in two
respects: He is against the pope, and
ho is resting his case on a technicality.
As I do not enjoy the acquaintance
ot Mr. Catts, I will be excused if I
omit to mention any other resemblance
which he may bear to that great re
formed. But they both rest their
cases on technicalities, and only tech
nicalities in the case of Mr. Catts.
Technicality number one: Mr. Catts
has or did have a certificate of nomi
nation, while he and his attorneys ad admit
mit admit that since the date of the cer
tificate some errors have been discov discovered.
ered. discovered.
Technicality number two: Mr. Catts
and Mr. Knott both claim to be nomi
rated by about 30,000 votes out of a
total of about 90,000; a most glaring
technicality, when, in a country where
the majority is supposed to rule, any
man is found to assert his election or
nomination by one-third of the votes.
But they both rest their claims on
the technicalities of the Bryan pri primary
mary primary law, for no man can convince an
American citizen that a minority can
of right select for the majority.
It is obvious therefore- that some
of Mr. Catts friends would now and
forever deny all courts the right to
enforce any technical rule in investi
gating the technical claims of .Mr.
Catts in opposition to the technical
claims of Mr. Knott.
All tyrants have in all ages despis
ed technicalities, and while they are
sometimes overworked, their main of
fice is. to aid in the accomplishment of
justice, and they are generally the
potential bulwarks of individual
rights in every free country.
The judges are sworn to uphold the
law that our representatives make,
and if any of you will but read
volume of theFIorida statutes, it will
be seen that ninety per cent of the law
is purely technical, that is, it does not
relate to abstract or moral rights.
The same laws that fix your rights
restrain and frequently hamper the
judges in the administration of jus justice.

was it the least important post la the
defense of the eastern water front A
cocple of hundred yards to the south
lay Brooklyn bridge, half shrouded in
smoke, with shells bursting over it for

Its whole length, with the American
militiamen and volunteers, who had
been fighting on Long Island, fleeing
across. A few hundred yards to the
north stretched Manhattan bridge, also
under shell fire, with American troops
running in rout Directly ojpposite
N 94 was the narrowest stretch of
the river, with the burning docks and
warehouses of Brooklyn barely a quar quarter
ter quarter mile away from the boat slips of
New York. The smoke was drifting
low now, covering the water and con concealing
cealing concealing the boats being brought over
from Brooklyn. The battle the noise
of artillery, the rattle of machine guns
seemed now, just behind the smoke
on the Brooklyn shore. A shell per perhaps
haps perhaps a stray, perhaps a precursor of
a bombardment of the whole water
front struck and burst in South street
before N 94. Company F dropped its
rifles and leaped at Winslow's orders.
There were cotton bales on every
floor. There was sacked wool. meat,
sugar. Company F, sweating and
gasping to the noonday heat bore the
bales and sacks to build up barriers
at windows and behind the brick walls.
Tho wooden legged man brought a fire
hose and drenched the barriers, floors
and walls.. A. shell blew half the roof
off N 94. Houston put out the fire
and, with his rifle, crouched at a win window
dow window beside Jim Ashby, kneeling be behind
hind behind a cotton bale.
The "retreat" of the American forces
from Long Island appeared to have
been accomplished. At least the guns
on the Brooklyn side no longer were
shelling the bridge. And as the wind
swept the smoke below the great spans
Jim saw that the bridge was deserted.
"They'll be coming now," Houston
warned Jim.
The guns in Brooklyn seemed all con concentrating

bridge, where Jim had seen the soldiers
of the regular army. And the guns

the bridge and shut from sight the

warned Jim., He raised Ms rifle a lit little

rance. fragrance. Mrs. Parr reminded one of
this lovely flower. She was so refined,
so gentle, so unselfish, so unassum unassuming
ing unassuming that only those who knew her

best realized her true worth.

Iike the violet, she, too, seemingly,

occupied a small space in this life, but

her influence for good, for the wel

fare and uplift of mankind was as

sweet, as strong and as unchanging
as the distinct and lasting aroma of

the violet. : ".

She was true to the highest emo

tions within her own soul and was

governed by customs and convention

alities' only when they were founded

upon the" principles of love and truth

and right. : : VV

She taught not by precept, but by

example; not by professing but by do

ing. She realized that this life was
not for pleasure alone,1 but "for the
highest unfoldment that' one can at

tain, to the noblest character one can

grow and for the greatest service that

one can render to all mankind."

She knew that one must not sep

arate one's self from Him "who

doeth all things well," if one wished
to findthe best, the fullest, the rich richest
est richest life that this or any other world

could give.

She was endowed with great men

tal power and high moral courage
and always stood for truth and right

with unflinching firmness.,. v i,-

Mrs. Parr was deep spiritual. She

joined the Methodist church when
only i nine years of .age and lived a
consistent Christian for seventv

years She was nearly eighty years

old when her heavenly father called
her to her eternal home.

As Christian, wife, mother and

friend, she was ever true to every
trust reposed in her. ;

She never questioned the dispensa dispensations
tions dispensations of providence, though her path

was not always through pastures
greeri. nor by still waters. Many,

many times the way was weary and

dark shadows encompassed her and

the sea of her life was tempest tossed

until in anguish of spirit her soul

would cry out, almost in dispair. Then
would she grasp more firmly the hand
of her Savior and hear Him say: "Lo,
it is I." "Beyond the darkness is the
perfect day. In every path of thine
I lead the way." y. '-
Mrs. Parr tasted, more than once,
the bitterness of adversity. She' knew
the pangs Of grief. Her home circle
was invaded by the angel of death.
She experienced the unspeakable sor sorrow
row sorrow of giving up husband, children
and other loved ones.
But at no time did she murmur,
bearing with true Christian submis submission
sion submission all of these trials and afflictions.
Why these burdens v of sadness were
laid on her, .she could notunderstand,
but her prayer was "Thy will be
done." '' f
"Some time in the bright hereafter
When ..the pearly gates unfold;
WTien we stand within the city

Where the streets are paved with gold,

W here the sunlight ever lingers
And the weary heart finds rest,
We shall see with clearer vision
What God does is always best."

Now that Mrs. Parr is with us in
person no more, her children, ,her
grandchildren and her friends have a
keen sense of their bereavement and

loss, but the lining of silver shines

through our sorrow-cloud. We know

she is "safe in the arms of Jesus," re

united with loved ones gone on before,

and when we pass on into the land of

immortality she will be there to wel

come us.
