approval, and a number of citizens
were down town on that date with
their cars, ready to help carry tha
soldiers to the springs.
It is now proposed by those in sym sympathy

the picnic next Thursday afternoon
and evening, and it can easily be done
if the people will go into the affair
with half the vim shown by the ladies
who gave the reception at the dormi dormitory

All that is necessary is to form an
organization of car owners who will
take the soldiers out to the springs,
and housekeepers who will furnish
baskets of lunch, and some to go and
do the serving. There are 130 men in
the company, and it will not be a dif difficult

Ocala to furnish autoes enough to
take them to the springs and back,
and furnish them a good supper and

fair affair should be given next Thursday
afternoon and evening, as it is the
regular weekly half -holiday, and
many more people can attend. For
it must be remembered that people
should be present and help the boys
to have a good time by having a good
time themselves. "The gift without
the giver is bare."
Let's turn in and see if we can't do
this little thing for our portion of the
steel wall that is building between us
and a rapacious enemy.
The boys in khaki are having a
good time compared with what they
will have later on; however, you
needn't fool yourself into thinking
theyare having a picnic. They are
working hard and living hard; and
any citizen who had to do as they do
for a week would begin to appreciate
the sacrifice they are making. Let's
pitch in, for the honor of Ocala, and
give them one good time next Thurs Thursday

OPPOSED TO IMPOUNDING
Editor Star: I was taught from a
child to let" my conscience be my
guide. Now I am a man of some age
and find that your conscience will al
most always tell you right from
wrong. My conscience has always told
me it was wrong for the city to im
pound country people's stock. For
an example I know an old colored
woman living four miles from town.
She had a nice milk cow and yearling
coming near enough to town to be
driven into the pound and were sold
and butchered. The old woman was
offered $65 for the cow by a white
man, but she said, "Boss, I raised her
from a calf and she gives me two gal gallons
lons gallons of milk a day and if I could feed
her like the white folks, she would
give three gallons.
The cow and yearling were sold by
the marshal for less than $40 and
after a lot of trouble, the old negres3
got about $35. Merely by chance she
found out what had become of them.
I want to know if there is one citizen
in Marion county who will say that
If there is one, and if he could have
seen the tears trickle down this old
faithful slave's cheeks, he would have
changed his mind.
Every one knows, who knows any anything
thing anything about a milk cow, what effect it
has to be run and whipped.
Now, if this is right and legal, why
can't I do the same way pen a man's
cow up when it comes on my lot, pay
for an ad. in the paper for two or
three days and if she is not called for
sell same. The city takes no chances.
They get paid for the time they take
up stock and if they are not called
fcr in this short time they get the
whole. What do they do with this
money if it is not called for? Guess
they give it to the Orphans Home in
Jacksonville, but it is never listed.
I am in favor of driving them out
instead of in. The pound man knows
the cows that belong in town.
I am opposed to let any mag treat
me better than I treat him. The coun country
try country man is our friend. What would he
do with our cow if it wandered out of
town to his place? Nine out of ten
would only want actual cost (and
some not that) for the time she was
taken care of.
What will the country man do if
you go out to spend the day with him
give you a nice chicken dinner.
I appeal to our mayor to arrange
some way to treat them better about
their stock. W. F. McAteer.

It is said that Rozier Catts, who
was appointed a lieutenant in the
Lake City company, finding himself
objectionable to a large proportion of
the men, resigned and entered the
navy. If this was the case, the boy

Mr. Root, who has been to Russia,
says he has hopes of Russia. And
many who have not been to Russia,

It's time every farmer, merchant

Seems to the Star that the war de department

about Captain Catts by giving him a

JUSTICE TO ANIMALS
Jack London is dead, but one of his
greatest stories, "Michael, Brother of
Jerry," is running in one of the mag
azines. We can't help thinking that
when Jack wrote it, he" was trying to
imitate Dickens or Charles Reade
Dickens, in his description of "Dothe "Dothe-boys
boys "Dothe-boys Hall" showed up the boarding
schools of England and brought about
a reform in those institutions, many
of which were dens of torture for
boys. Reade showed up the tyrannies
of trades-unions, which had more
than the evils and few of the virtues
of the organizations of today, and
their improvement was doubtless in
some measure due to his book, "Put
Yourself in His Place." In another
book he exposed the horrors of so
called model prisons, and in another
told what traps could be made of pri
vate lunatic asylums. In thi3 story
of Jack London's, he gives a number
of chapters to animal training, and
shows how torture is inflicted on ani animals
mals animals in order to make them do tricks
Every animal trainer declares to his
audience that the performances of the
dumb beasts are due to kindness and
careful training, but London gives
mighty good reason for the belief
that they are the result of tortnent
and fear. Performing animals are
always the special delight of children
who would only treat the animals with
kindness themselves and are imbued
with the belief that they receive only
kindness from their trainers. It would
be a mighty good thing for the world
if the people turned in and insisted on
the animals being treated with jus justice.

The vote on the food bill shows the
lack of patriotism in the Senate of
the United States. A vast maiority
were in favor of the bill but they let
the minority hold it up for weeks. The
Senate, by acting vigorously, could
have cut the profitless debate on the
subject down to a few days, or even
hours. Yet it sat week after week
and listened to the jawfest, while the
people suffered and the administra

fect. defect. I knew there were a whole lot
of weaklings being raised up in the
country now, but I did not think the
percentage was as large as it appears
obe. Among other thing I notice
that quite a number are rejected for
being flat-footed. What is that? I
have all the while been thinking that
hat expression meant firmness im
movable determination. I have often
heard people say have said it my myself
self myself "I stand flat-footed on that
proposition." I take it for granted
that we must have had some of these
duck-footed fellows in civil war
times, but I never did hear of any
one being exempted for any such
hing as that. But then we did not
fight with our feet it was against
the rules. I know the fiat-footed fel-
ows in the Confederate army (if we
had any) could stand as firm, shoot
as hard and straight as any other
fellows. Talking about rejecting the
fiat-footed men reminds me of the
story I heard of an Irishman who
went to a cock-main in New Orleans
to enter his, bird for the fight that was
about to come off. He had his bird in
a bag, as all the sporting men had
theirs, and he walked up to the man
who booked the entries and asked the
amount of the entrance fee and upon
being told, he paid it. He then had to
show his bird so as to have it regis
tered, weighed and named. When he
took his bird out of the bag it proved
to be a Muscovy drake. He was told
that he could not enter that bird, that
the fight was a game cock match, and
besides that, the bookkeeper told him,
"That thing can't fight nohow; he could
not stand up a minute before a game
cock." Can't stand up is it?" says
Pat, "why yer honor, look at his fate
(feet). Why all 'hell can't thrip 'im
up!" But the Muscovy was ruled out,
just like the flat-footed are being
Then. too. I see some are turned
down for defective teeth. Well, in
civil war times there existed a real
military reason for this, as the boys
had to bite off the end of the paper
cartridges then used, before they
rammed the ball home in their rifles,
but even so, I never heard of any one
being exempted from military service
on account of defective teeth. Of
course I know that bad teeth are the
cause of a number of physical ills, but
now when the government has army
dental surgeons it seems to me that
when it is only the teeth that turns a
fellow down, that instead of giving
him an exemption card, he should be
required to report to one of the dental
surgeons to have the defects reme
died, and then report for duty. It
would seem to me that in this way, at
least 75 per cent of these exemptions
could be remedied and the parties
ready for service in a very short time.
. We have spoken of the bad teeth
and the flat feet but the biggest prop proposition
osition proposition that we are up against is the
"cold feet." The doctors do not have
to handle that "fearful" malady but
surely there must be some expert
specialists somewhere along the line
whose duty and privilege it is to close closely
ly closely examine into and apply the remedy
to this disease. Seems to me just now,
that the examining board might very
well apply a "sticking" plaster to
quite a number of these cases that
would accomplish wonderful results if
they examine closely into the cause of
this nauseating disease. Well, may maybe
be maybe Uncle Sam can afford to pick and
choose now and turn down the boys
with fiat feet, bad teeth and cold feet

real "sidereal time" the Irish Times explains
that that is the only truly scientific
manner of recording time and is that
which astronomers and navigators use.
A "sidereal day" is the precise time
taken by the earth in revolving on its

ferent different day.
If you set up a sundial in a garden
and observe when it is noon today and
again tomorrow you will find that it
exceeds the "sidereal day" by three
minutes and fifty-six seconds. The
difference is due to the distance that
the earth has traveled on its orbit
while it has been revolving on its axis.
The orbit motion makes it necessary
for the earth to turn nearly four min minutes

to the same position with regard to

Why Careful Driving Means Lets Ex Expense

The automobile owner should realize
that a vast proportion of tire break breakdowns

tire could have been avoided if the
driver had taken the trouble, to swing
his wheel a little to avoid contact with
the obstruction. Cuts from glass or
metal objects may be largely avoided
if the driver pays strict attention to
what he is doing. The man who takes
a railway track head-on and at speed
runs the risk of shooting his front
wheels up in the air and bringing the
tires down with a thud on the far rails,
thus causing a bruise that may result
in a blowout later on.
The first thing necessary to be im impressed

he himself is the final court In decid deciding

his casings. If he will only drive care carefully
fully carefully most of his troubles will be cured
before they occur. Whenever a casing
comes in violent contact with a sharp
object of any sort, whether it is a stone
or a railway track, a small break will
probably be made in one of the layers
of fabric. The friction engendered in
service widens this small opening as
strand after strand gives way under
the strain. Finally the inner tube
forces its way into the break, and
sooner or later the opening closes down
on the tube, pinching It and causing
a blowout of the inner retainer. The
air, at a pressure of between eighty or
ninety pounds, bursts its way through
the injured place, tearing the small
rupture wide open in a gaping blow blowout.

How to Preserve Meat When Hunting
Is Told by a Hunter.
We cut plenty of meat from txJfh the
sheep and were busy most of the next
two days caring for our trophies and
drying meat. The sheep and bear skins
had to be scraped, the fat carefully
removed, the skin stretched out to dry.
Fortunately the weather was clear and
the sun hot, so that the drying was
quickly and well done. We cut a great
deal of both sheep and bear meat into
strips and hung It on a rack that we
rigged near the fire, where it would
catch the sun and also receive artificial
heat ag,well. Meat dried in this way
will last indefinitely, and, though the
flavor is not much to boast of, the
meat is nourishing and goes well in
"mulligans" and similar concoctions.
For my people at home I also dried a
few pounds of both -sheep and bear
meat according to Dr. Hornaday's rec recipethat
ipethat recipethat Is, I first rubbed on the raw
meat a mixture of black pepper, all allspice
spice allspice and salt, after which I dried the
strips in the sun. Paul L. Haworth in
