This martyred city of the Serbs, un under

the Bulgar, batteries only two miles
away, was visited for the first time to today

General Grosetti, commander-in-chief
on the Monastir front of the

a press dispatch goes from Serbia
these days, for practically the whole
country has been swept clean by the

; Lieutenant-Colonel, Dosse of the staff,
who was on General Petain's staff at
Verdun during theworst days.

strife between Serb and Jiulgarr It
was one of the last points abandoned

The Bulgars held it last y2r through
August. Then the new Serbian army,
reorganized, gave their first attention
to getting back this city.' But their
newness was against them and they
were badly repulsed. But in October
the Serbs got their revenge, making
a mass attack with the French and

but the Austro-Bulgars still held on
only three miles north and west of

them from the northern hills in a

clung to the western hills, and there

CAN'T HOLD CATTS
His Friends Unable to Prevent the
Governor from Making an Un Un-.

The cooler-headed friends of the
governor, who have been trying, with
fair success to hold him down the
past few weeks have temporarily lost
their grip if the following dispatch to
the Pensacola Journal is true:

to Viovernor iatts in an mierview
given out in Montgomery Tuesday
while en route to Louisville, where
he is to address the Purity League
"I expect Secretary of the Navy
Daniels to declare martial law in
Florida," declared Governor Catts,
"principally on account of the rotten
conditions in Escambia county. The
fight is still on between the prohibi prohibitionists

fought me ever since I announced for

will keep fighting until liquor is

"I have written a letter to Secre

conditions, to him, especially the con
ditions to be found m those cities
where naval bases have been estab
lished, and I look for the secretary
of the navy to take some drastic
action in' the matter.
"I, told Secretary Daniels in my

Moral conditions surrounding, the
camp at Jacksonville, according to
Governor Catts, are excellent at this
time, though a few weeks ago Florida
stood a good chance to lose the camp.
"How about the report that 20,000
troops would be removed from Jack Jacksonville

unfavorable moral conditions?" hi.

wondered no longer, only stared in
dumb amazement. Was it that they
were in their own room or in some
one else's? Were they seeing things
crooked? One should say "Yes."
Crooked was no word for it. Their
clothes were mixed and jumbled to together,

"girls' pictures had been greatly

When the dumb amazement passed

the tender, good-natured, voices usu

in stern, fierce, gruff growls it poured
out, rather making the "spooks" hap happier

Harold and Julian were not the

his lost picture of Sarah ? Why did
Mr. Henderson's nose shine so? (The
"spooks" upset his face powder).
Why was Reuben so sleepy-eyed? (He

off the sheet). Why was Leonard so
nearly late? (He had to fairly dig a
tunnel to get out of his room). All
of this was caused by the "spooks."

MILITARY DRILL IN O. H. S.
The military drill in school this
year is compulsory. Every boy from
the fourth grade up has to drill every
morning from 10:05 to 10:35.
There are one hundred and fifty
boys in, the school that are compelled
to drill. The boys are divided into
two companies, A and B.
The only thing some of the boys
dislike about the drill is that they
are detained after school to drill in
the "awkward squad."

A machine for tunneling the English

Friday night's meeting of the Mar Marion

A delegation from the Palatka Bus Business

present to urge the necessity of con continuing

A petition signed by 563 patrons of
the road between Ocala and Palatka
was handed in. The petition cited

THE RAILROAD'S SIDE r
OF THE STORY
Editor Star: May I not say a word
apropos to the "stupendous outrage"
that is, we are told, about to be perpetrated-
by the Ocklawaha Valley

the bondholders, April 16th, 1915,
since which time its operation has
earned a deficit of more than $35,000,

material and supplies that go into the
maintenance and operation of a rail railroad
road railroad has advanced from 30 to
450, and the greater advances have
occurred since January 1st, 1917. v
To be forced to continue operating
under these conditions means nothing
short of the confiscation of our prop property.;

Our socialist friend was quite right
in saying that "it is true, no doubt,
that the railroad is not making much
money," which is about the only
truthful statement in his tirade ap appearing

less "Heartless and cold-blooded on the part of
our oppressors." These expressions
have all the earmarks of having been
copies verbatim from the Call, one
of the rankest sheets that ever dis disgraced

rank, indeed, and unpatriotic, that
our patient and long-suffering presi president

I notice is was "whereased" at the
"Vigorous Protest" at the courthouse
last night that "It is a fact that the
said Ocklawaha Valley railroad has
refused several hundred carloads of
business to assist in the profits of
said road." I submit that for pure,
unmitigated falsehood, this rather
outranks the Call. It has refused
some business offered under terms
that no railroad could accept.' :
i It was stated further that the em employees
ployees employees had already received instructions-to
begin tearing up the side sidetracks

statement cannot be dignified by the
term falsehood. It is simply a bare barefaced

issued to begin tearing up sidings or
anything else on the 15th, or at any
other time. As a matter of fact," I
do not know that the rails' will ever
be taken up. If they are, it is a ten
shot to one that Uncle Sam will get
them at his own-price for shipment to
In conclusion, may I not express
our appreciation of the Star's impar impartial

it undoubtedly does that there are
two. sides, to the question, and that

Your Higher Cost of
Grooving Fruit and Trucli
This year the growers of Florida will
find that their producing costs have
been increased. Labor is scarce and
must be paid high wages, fertilizer,
costs more, crates are more expensive.
These higher producing costs are not
confined to Florida but prevail all over
the United States, as well as abroad.
There was no escaping them when the
whole world became involved in the
war for the "safety of democracy."
There is compensation in the fact
that if properly marketed the products
of farm, garden arioT grove may be sold
for prices enough higher than previ previously;
ously; previously; have been, secured to c0ver' at
least the increased producing costs.

shipments sent to'f glutted markets, or
offered to the corisuming. public with-
out the identifying iharfe of a selling
agency withiwhieh it is; acquainted and
in which it has ccdence. A public

Christian Science Monitor.
Some leaders are happy even in their

one of these. Grant was another. It

was that, while one dropped pearls of
speech, the other dropped the pearls
of silence. Nevertheless, when Grant
said that he proposed to "fight it out
on this line if it takes all summer" and
when he said, "Let us have peace," he
furnished his friends with political
campaign material jof the first order.
They were sayings as simple as "With

OCALA LOST THE GAME
Our High School Girls Basket Ball
t Team Defeated in Gainesville
V .. (Gainesville Sun.)
' Yesterday marked the opening of
the basketball season when the girls
of the local high school played and
defeated the Ocala H. S. on the local
court by a score of 18 to 15.
Having never- in the past defeated
the "Wild Cats," the local team "kill "killed
ed "killed two birds with one stone" and cov covered
ered covered themselves with glory.
The outlook at the beginning of the
season was black for the local team,
the majority, of its best players hav
ing graduated last year. Many .were
the, dubious expressions until happy
appearance of Mrs; Ray Driver who
consented to coach the girls. The
way she whipped and molded them
into shape in the last two weeks of
practice is a caution. If two weeks of
practice can bring forth playing and
team work as displayed yesterday-
then, the future" is assured and the
championship of the State is Gaines

two teams took their respective posi positions.

pretty sight. Ocala m their suits of

At the first of the game the "Wild "Wild-Cats"

displayed better team work. This
showed good, efficient coaching; and
the cleanness of sportsmanship dis displayed

the players'. A cleaner game could
not be played. The particular playing
and team work of the two forwards,
Callie Gissendaner and Agnes Bur Bur-ford,

local forwards, four consecutive bask baskets

throwing of a basket a few' minutes
later, after many failures, by Pauline
Merrill the local girls seemed to shiver
as the cold water had been poured on
them and awoke with a new determin determination.

, The playing of Cecil Cobb at jump jumping,

guard was as good as has ever been
on the local court.
Time was called several times for
Agnes Burford who finally had to be
taken out of the game and Lucille
Gissendaner put in her place.' Lucille
is small but the name "Wild Cat" is
quite appropriate to her playing.
The first half ended with the score
12 to 13 in favor of Ocala. :
VWhen the whistle blew for the sec second
ond second half it was seen that Captaii.
Chestnut and Manager Bullard had
made a few changes. Jessie Bishop
and Grace Bullard replaced Cecil Cobb
and Leo Johnson. It was in this half
that the locals covered themselves
with glory i and a carried oft the "ba "bacon."

team was beautiful to behold. Jessie
Bishop outplayed Catherine Leitnei
at jumping center "2 to 1." Playing
of Grace Bullard who was practically
a walking "Lazarus," having her left
hand in bad condition and a bruised
blood vessel in her foot, was a feature
of the game. Everyone acknowledged
that it was these substitutions which
turned defeat into victory. Louise
Brannon at guard brought forth many
complimentary remarks. v
The star playing of Lena Chancey
and Pauline Merrill for Gainesville
and that of Louise Spencer and the
two guards for Ocala deserve credit.
The second half ended the score 18
to 15 in favor of Gainesville.
One of the largest crowds ever seen
at a basket ball game was present,
which goes to show the prominence
the high school is gaining and' how
proud Gainesvile is of it.

COST SHOULD BE IN HARMONY
Amount Put In House "Should Not Be

One of the mosj grievous mistakes

as a rule, the character of future build building

For Instance, it is generally unwise
to build a house costing $5,000 or
$6,000 on a site costing less than $25
to $40 a front foot. Nor should the
reverse mistake be made of building a
cheap house on an expensive site site-though

Native Trees Are Desirable. ..
Many people have the decidedly mis mistaken

buying and setting out are the more or

which are not native jto most sections
of the country. The idea of paying out
good money for a pine, or a birch or a
maple seems to go against the graim

places where such trees, are to be had

Fall Best Time to Paint House.
The fall of the year is by far the
best ; time to paint the exterior of a
house, for paint dries more slowly in
cool weather and consequently lasts
longer. The heat of the summer sun
on a bouse painted In the spring does
much more harm than any winter
weather and a fall painting Is well sea seasoned
