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.

its quota.

efficient organiaztion necessary in a

Wee hands, unkempt, unkissed.
I never feel her small, confiding hand,
Slipped softly, like a flower, within

I never bend above her rosy sleep,
Or kneel in gratitude beside her
But other babes in outer darkness
Unwatehed, uncomforted.

How Peter Alexief Was
Saved From Siberia

In a northern province of Russia
there lived a peasant whose daughter,
Anna, was a very pretty girl. Pelr

future was before the young -oup!t
That was before the revolution which
deposed the Czar Nicholas, and the
government was keeping a sharp eye
on all persons who were susieeted of
plotting against it. A large force of
secret police better named spies was
scattered all over Russia.
Not only those who were really so
minded reported to the minister of the
Interior at the capital, but If one ir
son bad a private crrudse against an
other there was liability that he would
take revenge by reporting him to the
police as a revolutionist, or what wa
then called a nihilist. This was also
true of the spies themselves. If a spy
chose to condemn a person he wished
to get rid of, that person was taken
away and nothing was heard of him
afterward. He was buried In the con
vlct mines of Kara.
While Peter and Anna were making
their preparations to be married there
came to the province where they lived
a man 'whose name was Ivan Ivano Ivano-vitch.

Ivan had no visible occupation and
was known to be a government spy.
He met Anna at a dance in a barn and
conceived a passion for her. Anna,
knowing him to be a spy, dreaded him,
but dared not refuse to dance with
him, fearing that he would take re revenge
venge revenge upon her.
Ivan, becoming more and more enam enamored
ored enamored of Anna, began to look about for
some act of Peter's which could be
used as evidence against him. This
was shortly before the revolution
whereby the people of Russia wrested
a constitution from the czar, and Pe
ters neighbors were beginning to plan
for resistance against the government's
despotism. Peter got wind of the in inquiries
quiries inquiries of Ivan and told his friends
that he feared the spy was planning
to get him out of the way that he
might possess himself of Anna.
Meanwhile Anna, not daring to de decline
cline decline the attentions of Ivan, accepted
invitations from him One evening the
two were walking together toward An Anna's
na's Anna's house when Ivan left her. As he
turned away a citizen tapped him on
the shoulder and asked him to come
with him. The citizen took him to a
house where a dozen men were wait waiting
ing waiting for them. One of the men said-to
"You are suspected of trying to make
a case against Peter Alexief to send
him to Siberia that you may marry
his betrothed. You are hereby notified
that if anything happens to Peter your
life will be forfeited."
"I deny the charge," replied Ivan. "I
have no need to get rid of Peter. The
girl prefers me to him."
It was plain to all that tfuite likely
if Anna were called upon to choose be between
tween between the two she would not dare to
choose Peter for fear of Ivan.
"I am ready to fight with my rival
for the girl I love and who, I believe,
loves me. This proves that I am not
planning to take any underhanded ad
vantage of him
Now, it was suspect' l that Ivan,
who had come from a country where
weapons are in common use, whould
make short work of Peter, who had
been born and grown up a simple
farmer. The spokesman of the tribu
nal before whom Ivan was arraigned
consulted with the others and then
turned to the prisoner.
"Your proposition to fight your rival
for the possession of the girl is accept
ed. Since you are 'the challenger he
will have the choice of weapons."
Peter was sent for and closeted with
the leader of the citizens who were en endeavoring
deavoring endeavoring to save him from his rival.
They proposed to Peter that he should
fight Ivan, choosing weapons which
would give him an advantage over his
enemy. Peter could think of no weap
on that he could wield even indiffer
ently, whereupon one was suggested
to him. He gave his consent at once,
and it was arranged that the due'
should come off at dawn.
The thermometer at sunrise stood at
30 degrees below zero. Peter, who
was used to cold weather, walked out
to the yard in the rear of the house
where the fray was to take place in
shirt and trousers. Ivan, who had been
used to a hot climate, had on Ms warm
est clothing. One of those present
handed each of the disputants the noz
zle of a hose. Ivan stood aghast. He
saw at once that he must fight with
cold water.
But it was too late to recede. A faint
hope came to him that his warm
clothing would protect him. He took
the nozzle offered him, the signal was
given, and the two men poured
stream at eacn other which was as
cold as it could be without freezing.
Peter did not seem in the least trou
bled by his cold bath, but his enemy
collapsed in five minutes. He dropped
his weapon and ran for the house.
As soon as he had put on dry cloth clothing

at once if he wished to save himself

Joy In Trying.
Do not allow yourself to just drift
along through life. Set before you an
aim, some real purpose. Cultivate hop
and ambition to accomplish something.
Do nt be contented to lot things hap happen;
pen; happen; make happen. Whatever
your business or occupation aim to ex excel
cel excel In it. Fiiiuin ial gain is not ail on
gets from labor well performed. Your
character is elevated and your mind is
enlarged, and the satisfaction in hav having
ing having done well is the most real joy.
Don't be afraid to set your aim high.
Gild it with your highest ideals. Iet
the hope of its attainment nerve your
every act. Turn incidents and circum circumstances
stances circumstances toward the attainment of your
aim. If you have no aim you reach
nowhere. A life without a purpose is
a dreary thing, without real joy. Sup Suppose
pose Suppose you fail to reach the heights you
have set as your standard; you will
have gone higher than if you had not
striven. You will be more useful, of
more worth, than if you had not tried.

Weir Balanced Diet.
One of the most "common faults of
the diet is the eating of too much pro protein
tein protein foods. In excess this is hard for
the body to excrete and is likely to de decompose
compose decompose in the intestines with the
formation of poisonous waste products.
Green vegetables, and raw fruit are
important elements of the diet. There
is little energy in these foods, but they
supply mineral salts which the body
needs and curious substances called
vitamins, which are easily destroyed
by cooking.
One food expert has suggested a rule
for securing a well balanced diet. It
is: An ordinary family should spend
about as much for milk, vegetables
and fruits as for meats, fish and eggs
and as much for milk and escs as for
meat and fish.

iiidney, Bladder and Uric Acid Troubles Bring
fiflissry To FIanym

When the kidneys are weak or diseased these natural filters do not
cleanse the blood sufficiently, and the poisons are carried to all parts of the
body. There follow Depression, and Pains, Heaviness, Drowsiness,

' An uric may be obtained right here
in town to-day, as Doctor Pierce has arranged with the local druggists for its
f'l.i; 'Tibution. It's surprising that so many of us never suspect our kidneys even
wlcu they give a fair warning that something is wrong. Like all filters they
become clogged most frequently. A fifty-cent package of "Anuric," however,
will give renewed life. Send 10 cents for large trial package, or write symptoms
and send sample of urine to Doctor Pierce's Invalids' Hotel, Buffalo. IT. Y.

Irritation, Headaches, Chilliness, Rheu Rheumatism,
matism, Rheumatism, Backache and Dropsy. The
uric acid sometimes forms into gravel
or kidney stones. When the uric acid
affects the muscles and joints, it causes
lumbago, rheumatism, gout or sciatica.
This is the time to try "Anuria"
During digestion uric acid is absorbed
into the system from meat eaten, and
even from some vegetables. The poor
kidneys get tired and backache begins.
This is a good time to take "Ajiuric,"
the new discovery of Doctor Pierce for
Kidney disturbances.
