IT WILL BE A GREAT EVENT
It may be nossible that some of
those who will exhibit af the Marion
County Fair do not know about the
fair at Jacksonville later on.
In a recent communication from B.
K. Hanafourde, the general manager
of the Florida ftate Fair and Exposi Exposition,
tion, Exposition, he says:
"The Florida State Fair is to be
the greatest annual agricultural and
live stock event in the sautheast. Tne
permanent exhibit buildings are be
ing erected. I believe that nearly
every county in the state will be rep
resented. A special building 200 feet
long, entitled,. 'Florida Counties," will
house the agricultural and industrial
resources of Florida.
"The premium list is a good one,
and the premiums offered for the
competition of Florida counties are
especially attractive, divided into six
splendid awards: First $500; second,
$300; third, $200, and fourth, fifth
and sixth, $100 each. Besides this a
$150 solid silver cup will be awarded
the winning county."
We would like to see the winners at
the Marion County Fair plan to go
further and carry off some of the
awards at the state fair. Also Mar
ion could be the banner county of the
state if all of our exhibitors will do
their part. The State Fair dates are
Feb. 2Gth to March 9th inclusive.

It will be remembered that a few
days ago, the Star printed a recipe
for persimmon beer. "We hardly hop-
ed that anyone in. these modern times
would try to brew this ancient but
honored beverage but one. good .lady
and competent housewife, hailing
from the empire state of the South,
sat up and took notice and last night
her hubby gladdened our heart with
an invitation to. come by and sample
In -consequence, a small but select
party sat down about 8 p. m. in one
of the city's most elegant dining
rooms, and after partaking of a
dainty supper their eyes were glad gladdened

symmetrical pitcher with an expres expression

From, the? snowy lip : of said
pitcher an amber liquid was poured
into crystal glasses, and the editor
was invited to first taste and pass
He tasted, and the first sip sent his
memory 'back ; over thirty five years,
to the days when he came in from
the harvest field on the North Geor Georgia
gia Georgia mountain side and found rest and
refreshment in a brimming- glass t of
persimmon beer, or when with the
otfier boys and girls,- at the corn corn-shuckings
shuckings corn-shuckings the beverage was passed
during the races to find the red ear,
or when on the hunt he stopped at
some log, cabin door. for a minute's
rest and; talk with a neighbor and a
draft of. the brew that was as refresh
ing and invigorating as the mountain
He assured his hostess that she had
hit it just right and proved his words
by. drinking ihalf the contents of the
pitcher and ;it: was some pitcher, too.
Later in tke evening, when he -sat
by his lonesome in his den, and tried
to po"und. some spacefillers out of -his
machine, he. (probably inspired by the
beer, began thinking of what a fine

WORK AND NEEDS
. F THE RED CROSS
The war council of the American
Red Cross has appropriated $31,212
to buy seventy-fiv tons of food for
American prisoners in Germany. The
lood is to be forwarded to the Red
Cross warehouse at Berne, Switzer Switzerland,
land, Switzerland, pending its need by American
prisoners. At present the number of
American prisoners in German pris prison
on prison camps consists only of about 100
seamen. Twenty-five tons of food
for their relief, enough to sustain
this number of men for. three months,
have been sent to Berne up to this
time,, and this authorized order for
seventy-five tons will insure their sus sustenance
tenance sustenance for an additional nine months
or will suffice for a larger number for
a shorter period.
Soldiers and sailors captured by
the Central Powers are not provided J
by their captors with sufficient food
to keep them in good health, nor with
sufficient clothing, so these necessi necessities
ties necessities must be provided from home, and
in view of this condition, the Amer American
ican American Red Cross, and the United States
government is preparing to feed all
American soldiers and sailors who
may be taken prisoners by Germany
during the war. A complete scheme
for sustaining prisoners is now being
worked out jointly by the war and
navy departments and the American
Red Cross, which will be the agency
through which the American prison
ers will be reached.
Under the proposed plan of feed feeding
ing feeding American prisoners in Germany,
each prisoner is to receive, in the
course of every two weeks, three ten ten-pound
pound ten-pound packages, containing proper
and sufficient rations to keep him in
good health for that length of time.
It is expected that sufficient food to
sustain a considerable number of
men "for several months will have
been accumulated in Berne before the
American troops begin active service
on the fighting front.
; Already the navy department has
shipped 100 outfits of clothing for the
interned seamen in Germany, and the
quartermaster general's department,
85 cases of clothing for soldiers "and
interned civilians. Foodstuffs, so far
provided, have been purchased by the
American Red Cross, but the furnish furnishing
ing furnishing of' necessary rations is to be at attended
tended attended to by the government as soon
as detailed")lans for prisoner relief
work are perfected.
Under existing arrangements with
the German government food and
clothing for American prisoners are
sent in bulk to a neutral country and
there repacked by agents of the Am American
erican American Red Cross in standard contain containers.
ers. containers. In charge of this work at Berne
is Ellis L. Dresel, who, before the
war, was attached to the American
embassy at Berlin. He Is now a
member of the staff of the American
legation at Berne, and hi3 experience
ihas well qualified him for the super superintending
