SUSTAINS THE STAR
The opinion of the state supreme

election of Dec. 7, 1915, is too lengthy
tc print in today's issue, but we take
pleasure in reproducing the last two
paragraphs, which sustain the posi position
tion position the Star has taken all along:
"We cannot see how any one but a
blind man, or one who by reason of
ignorance, could not read, could have
been confused or misled in the slight slightest
est slightest degree by the manner in which the
ballots were printed. Our statute
provides for the inspectors assisting
the former, but leaves the latter to
pay the penalty of his ignorance un
til such time as he may himself re
move the disability. The testimony
discloses that the purpose of the ar arrangement
rangement arrangement of the words on the ballot
was to prevent fraud, by making it
impossible for an ignorant voter to
take with him into the booth a device
by which he would be enabled to
mark his ballot without being able
to read it.
"The record fails to show that any
person entitled to vote was prevented
from expressing his choice, or that
the election was not a full, fair and
freeexpression of the will of the peo
pie, or that if the ballots had been
identical with respect to the arrange
roent of the words "For Selling" and
"Against Selling," the result woufd
have been different. We are therefore
constrained to hold that the election
was valid,rand the decree of the lower
court is reversed."

Going Ahead With the Work of
Giving -Deserved Aid to the
It has been well understood for the
last two or three months that the
Ocala Rifles deserved and needed a
company fund, which the members,
owing to the unfortunate situation in
which they were placed by the govern
ment, could not raise for themselves.
There have been several remarks in
the Star about it, but no one made
any move until Rev. G. A. Ottman,
the Episcopal minister, who has held
back because he ; is a comparatively
new comer, feeling that it was neces necessary
sary necessary that something should be done,
and if it were "done well it were well
it were done quickly," started out
this morning to see what could be
done. He soon found willing helpers
in Rev. Bunyan Stephens, Lieut.-Col.
Nash, Messrs. W. T. Gary, C. W.
Hunter and others, and the result is
that the good work is going on with
prospect of increasing in speed and
volume as the days go by.
It will be only simple justice to
htlp the company raise a fund. It
deserves it for its good work in the
past, even if there was not prospect
of. its deserving it many times over
in the future. American soldiers
have never been placed in a position
similar to that held by the soldiers
of the Second Florida Infantry for
the last four months they have been
virtually held in the public service
without anything to subsist on but
their own resources, with their hands
tied so they could not help them themselves.

abroad will have to return at their

Big Yield Certain on the Well -Til led
Farm of C. C. Balkcom
Mr. C. C. Balkcom, who travels all
over this part of the state for the
Covingtgn company of Jacksonville,
and has sold more goods this season
than last, has, in addition to his
work as a salesman, raised one of the
best crops of staple farm stuff to be
seen anywhere in this section.
Mr. Balkcom bought a COO-acre
tract, four miles west of town, on the
A: C. L., from Mr. George Easterling.
He did not get on the property till
late and did not have the best show
from that reason. However, of the
300 acres that is cleared and fenced
he put in 50 acres of cotton, 58 of
corn, 18 of peanuts, 40 in velvet beans
and a few acres of peas. Mr. Balk
com was fortunate in getting a thor thoroughly
oughly thoroughly competent colored man to
place in charge with two other men,
and they have made the crops and
have as fine corn and cotton and vel velvet
vet velvet beans as can be found in the coun countryon
tryon countryon pine land.
Mr. Balkcom is so proud of his
pretty crop that he kidnaped a Star
reporter Saturday morning and took
him out in his Ford. Mr. Balkcom's
farm faces the full length of the rail
road with two private loading spurs
on the tract. A public road also runs
along the tract, and it is only 300
yards across to the Martel road.
He took the reporter all over the
place, and the poor newspaper man
sure wishes he had Mr. Balkcom's
chances at several thousand pieces of
kale from his cotton crop. He has 15
acres of long staple cotton, 15 acres
of short staple and 20 acres of the
Floradora variety, and the reporter
decided that each field was "just a
little better and a little more heavily
fruited than the other." It is certain
that it would be difficult to find a bet better

The 58 acres of corn looks fine.
