BOYS' CORN CLUBS
SHOULD GET BUSY
Ocala, FIa.r Oct. 111916.
Marion County Corn Club Boys.
My Dear Boys: Now is the time for
every boy in the corn club to begin
to get his record book in shape. Don't
ran to gatner your acre ana maKe a
rep"brt. If you have a small yield and
are a little bit ashamed; of it, just
show yourself to be a boy of charac
ter and report just what you made and
then prepare to do better next year.
I expect to give every boy a chance
to join the Pig Club for 1917, who has
his acre for corn well broken and a
cover crop such as oats or rye growing
on it by January 1st. Our pigs for
all boys will be -a small gilt from 10
to 12 weeks old and valued at $10.
Every boy in the club will have the
same size pig This includes the boys
whp are members of this year and
have grown "sows as they will take one
of their small pigs and ; work with
that. It would not be fair to let
them have a grown hog and the new
members a young pig so all will have
the small gilts while of course the old
members will go right on with their
old sow and make money from her.
No boy will be elegible for the 1917
Pig Club unless he has his acre brok broken
en broken and the cove crop planted by Jan January
uary January 1st.' Of course a boy who is do doing
ing doing something which will take 7 the
place of a cover crop such as penning
cattle on his acre will be allowed to
enter without the cover crop but ev
ery boy mast have his acre broken
good and deep by January 1st. This
covers all boys, both old members and
new members. But in addition to this
no boy from this year's Corn : Club
will be taken into the Pig Club if he
fails to report on his acre and exhibit
his ten ears of corn at the Fair thi3
These rules are hard and fast and
must be observed by every boy who
wishes to join the Pig Club. Any boy
who does not follow these rules need
not apply. A boy who does not take
interest enough in his club work to
report is too sorry to have a pig and
won't be allowed in the Pig Club.
Now we must all pull together and
work to make the Marion County Corn
and Pig- Clubs the best in the state
and it will take good work and plenty
of it as several of the counties are
doing better work at the present time
Remember that Marion county needs
ycur work and get busy; make out
your reports, select your best ten ears
of corn and be ready for 'the "Fair.
It is more creditable for you to make
a low yield and report than to try to
slide out by not reporting. I will see
every one of you before the fair and
go over your report and help you in
any way I can. Yours for success,

"ITS A WORLD OF A HELL'
Editor Star: An impulsive young

Not the first time I have heard the
remark. It has seemed to fit in with
affairs quite frequently during my ex
istence, particularly in the last two
years. But it seemed to take hold on
my mind more strongly than previous
utterances of the kind.
I went to supper, ate a slab of fried
beefsteak, two or three petrified bis

the lodge, the picture show, to. bed
and to sleep. And because, I suppose
of the fried steak, I was like Pharoah

I hadn't fully availed myself of all my
opportunities to be wicked, liis Satanic
majesty was not very severe. There
were thirty-three degrees of damna

philanthropic imp handed me an as

miserable. I sat down on a redho
chunk of slag and, with a lively inter

Presently there came along another
ghost, who sat down beside me, and
sociably borrowed my fan. Not having
anything else to exchange, we ex
changed confidences. ,He was a Ger

had been on a polar expedition. helped

Chickens in Dormont last night ad advanced

Mathews thought it was morning and
left their roosts and wandered forth
to scratch in the loamy chicken yard.
No amount of shooing could persuade
them to the contrary, according to the
dispatch's special correspondent in
Dormont; indeed, some of the hens
were so certain that it was day and
not night that they laid their usual

FEAST OF TABERNACLES
The Jewish feast of Tabernacles or
Succoth will commence on Wednesday
evening, uctoDer!, and win last lor
nine days. According to the Bible the
feast lasted only seven days In the
course of time, however, the feast was
lengthened to nine days; the last two
being the eighth day of solemn as
sembly or the feast of conclusion, and
the day of rejoicing for the law.
Succoth means booths, and the name
owes its origin to the fact that on this
feast many families build festive
booths in which the holiday, meals are
served. In some cases pious people
will spend all the days of the feast
living in the booth in order to give
literal fulfilment to the injunction: "In
booths shall ye dwell seven days."
The frail booth built as a tempor
ary dwelling, an imperfect shelter
from the elements, is to remind man
that he is constantly under the protec
tion of the Almighty, just as the fath
ers of Israel were under his protec protection
tion protection in the wilcferness. f In order that
your generations may know that I
made the children of Israel dwell, in
booths, when I brought them up from
the land of Egypt."
The sentiment of the feast is rooted
deep in the ancient agricultural life of
Israel. Succoth was one of the great
pilgrimage festivals. The other two
were passover and the feast of weeks.
Each of these was at the harvest time
of some particular crop. On these
three occasions the people from all
over. the land of Canaan would jour journey

festival there. This feast. Succoth.
known also as the Feast of Ingather Ingathering
ing Ingathering was at the time of the gathering
in ,of fruits. The booths therefore
may be reminiscent of the booths
erected by the busy harvesters as
temporary dwellings in the field. The
palm branches and the willows, the
myrtle and citron still borne in pro procession

feast also suggest this ancient harvest
Succoth was the last of the three
