CONGRESSMAN CLARK OKU
Says he Has No Intention of Trying
to be Either Governor or
Congressman Clark arrived in the
city yesterday, and was kept busy un until
til until bedtime talking to his friends.
The congressman is one of the most
accessible men in the world, and takes
pleasure in meetings folks. While he
had much business affairs to talk of,
he seems to regard getting out in the
communities of his district as a vaca vacation
tion vacation from the grind of Washington.
Mr. Clark had a bunch of friends
around him at the Harrington last
night, and gave them many sidelights
,on public work in Washington.
One thing he made plain is that

need not expect any improvements for
the Oklawaha, Withlacoochee nor any
other small stream until the war is
over. He says, for one thing, the
president won't allow it.
In regard to talk about his possible
candidacy for the governorship or a
senatorship, Mr. Clark retold that old
rable of Aesop, how the dog with a
piece of meat in his mouth, crossing a
stream, saw himself reflected in the
water, supposed it was another dog
and another piece of meat, snapped at
the imaginary piece of meat, thereby
losing his own. Mr. Clark says as
long as the people of the second dis district
trict district want him to represent them, he
isn't likely to try for any other office.
Mr. Clark returned to Gainesville
today. From there he will make a
brief trip down the East Coast, and
then will go to Washington, where
next Monday Congress will enter on
another session which may last until
its successors come in March 4, 1919.

The Star is sorry to say that there
seems no doubt that the death of Ser Sergeant

in the hospital at Camp iWheeler, was
due to neglect. t
Nobody who knew the strong, rug rugged
ged rugged young man and well trained sol soldier,
dier, soldier, who left here a few weeks ago,
and hears from his sister the story of
the pitiful condition she found him fn,
can doubt that careful nursing at the
right time would have saved him. His
father and sister could have savea
his life if they had been sent for at
once. His comrades at the camp
could have saved him if they had been
allowed to do so. There are a hun hundred
dred hundred of his personal friends in Com Company

him with a tenderness and interest
that no stranger nurse could feel.
As his life went, so, we doubt not,
others have gone, and so we feat
others will go.
"" A discharged soldier, a man who
had to leave the service, for a slight
defect, but who will probably be need needed
ed needed before the war is over, was in the
Camp Wheeler hospital for a few days
several weeks ago. He was not very
sick, so he did not suffer much, but
he saw others that, did. The story he
tells of the conduct of some of the
hospital attendants is enough to make,
a man's blood boil. He was in the
hospital during the October cold spell
and says -t the attendants in his ward
would crowd around the- stove at night
and pay little or no attention to the
sick men in their charge. They
would not even bring them water, and
he has seen sick, half -naked men arise
from their cots and stagger barefoot barefooted
ed barefooted across the cold floor to the water
supply in order to obtain a drink.
.. We wonder if. the officer in com command
mand command at Camp Wheeler knew of this,
and if he did, why didn't he have the
attendants flogged out of the camp?
Shooting them would not have been
any too severe punishment. Talk
about 4Geerman f rightfulness, but
such two-legged skunks are worse
This sort of business must be
punished and prevented if the coun country
try country is to win the war. If there are
many more such incidents, they will
take the heart out of our people. We
can send our sons to the front, bear
the agony of suspense of their ab absence,
sence, absence, bear the misery of knowing
they die or are wounded in doing their
duty. But if we begin to feel like it
is equivalent to a sentence of death
for one to be sent to a hospital, .we
will lose heart, for its few of them
who will go thru the war without
spending some time in hospitals.

These men must have been lying,
for shortly after that time James
Leitner was taken to the hospital, and
eight days after the commission's
visit, he died of neglect. Also, since
then the number of deaths in the
hospital, as shown by the Associated
Press reports, has been sometimes as
high as four a day.
Funeral of Sergeant Leitner
The funeral of Sergeant James E.
Leitner was held at thd Anthony
cemetery Monday afternoon. It was
attended by hundreds of people,
many going out from Ocala. The
death of the young soldier had been
'announced in the Ocala churches Sun Sunday

city were deeply grieved, many of
them knowing Sergeant Leitner as a

The grief of the bereaved ones was
sorrowful to witness, and even the
strongest men found it hard to keep
dry eyes when the father broke down
and sobbed with his head bowed on
his dead boy's coffin.
The grave was dug at the foot of a
young and ,; growing oak tree, which
will make a noble monument in the
years to come". The coffin was care carefully
fully carefully and revently laid in its resting
place, the earth heaped upon it and
the gathering slowly and sadly, dis dispersed.
The Star reporter saw Sergeant
Leitner's sister, Mrs. Robert Bruce
Dyall, who reached his bedside in
time to comfort him in his last hours.
In. a voice that she could hardly
steady she told how she found her
brother lying unattended on his cot,
the bedding of which could never
have been enough to keep him warm
or giye comfort to his pain-rached
body. She told how, when she saw
that uncalled for noises around him
were adding to his suffering, she
remonstrated, but could not have them
stopped. Then she begged to have
him moved to a quieter place, and
the attendants carried the cot into a
room that had just been scoured and
where the walls and floor were still
dripping with moisture.
In these uncomfortable surround surroundings,
ings, surroundings, the boy breathed his last, and
if his sister had not arrived in time
no one would, have been with him.
Mrs. Dyall saw but two nurses,
they overworked. Most of the men
attendants were careless and unfeel unfeeling.
She did not pass all her time by
her brother's bed. There were half a
dozen other soldiers as neglected,
tho' not so sick, and several times
when her brother seemed easier she
left him for a few minutes to help
the others. She obtained a hot water
bottle for one shivering boy, and did
such other little things-as she could.
' Of course Mrs. Dyall did not see

The best method for cleansing the whole
intestinal tract and urging the liver into activity is
to take as much outdoor exercise as possible, drink
hot water before meals, and take a pleasant, laxative,
vegetable pill occasionally. Such a one is made up
of May-apple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap; made
into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made nearly fifty years ago, and sold by
almost all druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
Such simple means will prevent auto-intoxication.

are constantly working, separating the poisons from the blood. Uric: acid backs up into the system, causing
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other serious disturbances.
This can be avoided by stimulating the kidneys to increased; action, and because of its tonic effect
on these organs I would advise any one to purchase Anuric (double or triple strength), which is to be had'

THE 20TM CENTURY FARM HORSE
Converts Any Ford into a Power Powerful
ful Powerful arm Horse
Docs All Farm Work Hts Any Size Farm
The new attachment which 'converts any Ford into a strong, dur durable
able durable tractor, capable of doing the work of four good horses on any
farm, is the most wonderful application of low cost power ever de developed
veloped developed for farm work. The well known efficiency and durability
of the Ford car combined with its 22-horsepower especially adapts
it for the purpose.
It can be easily attached or detached in a very short time without
the least injury to the car.
No holes to drill no vital parts to be removed.
Reasons why Every Farmer Sholud Have a
20th Century Earm Horse
1. Tractors are cheaper and more efficient than horses.
2. Every foot of your land can be put under cultivation in the
most modern way.
3. Horses have to be fed and cared for every day in the year
a 20th Century Farm Horse only when in use.
4. The 20th Century Farm Horse is always ready and will
work steadily 24 hours if necessary. It doesn't get tired, flies ana
hot weather don't bother it.
5. Labor is a serious problem on any farm any woman, any
boy or inexperienced farm hand who can drive a Ford can easily
operate a 20th Century Farm Horse.
(J. The 20th Century Farm Horse will do your hauling around ...
the farm and -to town. It will also do your road work.
7. The 20th Century Farm Horse will do the work" of 4 good
horse3 on any farm with an investment of less than the cost of
a single horse.
8. Why you should buy a 20th Century Farm Horse in prefer preference
ence preference to other makes: It is closely coupled and chunky, making it
not only more serviceable but .allowing you to plow close to the
fences and in the corners. You have more pulling power and great greater
er greater durability and it has a positive water cooling system.
