The Star has never taken any part
in criticising the women jfor the great
economy- in quantity in dress they
have manifested of late years. We
think that, in hot weather, a lady with
no more on than the law demands
looks better -and feels better than if
she was muffled to the neck, swathed
to the wrists and draped to the
ankles. But when, in weatHer like
we've had roost of the time the last
few yfeeks, we meet one without any anything
thing anything but a little thin air over her
wishbone,' we think she should be
rounded up and shut 'up in a nice,
'warm jail 11 the weather moderates.
The government wants the country
in general to adopt the plan of day daylight
light daylight saving that is, it will want the
clocks moved anead an hour every
day from the end of winter to the be;
ginning of autumn. We can't see h6w
this plan can be carried out without
abolishing standard time; At pres
ent, owing to the division of the Unit
ed States, into time-belts, about two two-thirds
thirds two-thirds of the country is ahead of sun-
time, and the ; remainder behind it.
Eastern time, for instance, is based
on Washington, which has to the east
of it only a small corner of the coun country,
try, country, while to the west is a broad belt
in which are several of the most pop.
ulous states. Every mile west: of
Washington is a gain for daylight
time. Chicago time, which f includes
Florida, i3 nearer even, losing for
daylight east of Chicago, and gaining
for it to the west. Chicago, like
Washington, is not in the center of
its belt, there being more to the west
than to the east. Mountain-time is
based on Denver, with most of its
territory to the west; it is only Pa Pacific
cific Pacific time where the sun loses in the
course of the year. The only way to
set the clocks ahead would be
for each community to keep dou double
ble double time that is, sun time and rail-
" t:-r;?. If Ocala J--::ople set their
- r j c i rv'Iror. 1 tir.e, they
would be half an hour ahead of sun
time; if they set them ahead on
sun time, they would be half an
hour ahead of the railroads. Setting
the clocks ahead in European coun countries
tries countries makes no trouble, as in the big
gest Germany it is only an hour by
sun from east to west, but if it is
tried in America" it will cause more
trouble than it will be worth. The
only practical way to save day daylight
light daylight would be for the people of
each community to get together and
agree to set, not clocks, but their
businessm an hour ahead. This could
be easily done in Ocala. If the places
of business, for instance, would agree
to open an hour earlier every morn morning

a good place for it. It is healthy and
quiet, with good railroad facilities for
that sort of a camp. We think a camjd
of that sort is much less of a money money-making

SERGEANT JAMES E. LEITNER
How happy we were ten months ago,
After the time had passed so slow;
While on the border-"Dude" did his

And to us he came for a few months'
But in, a few weeks, our hearts ached
V with pain,
For we knew he must soon leave us
But we were so proud of our boy,
ready to go,
While numbers hung back and made
; a cowardly show.
He did not get busy and swear to
To be a "cowardly slacker" under
I have often heard him say, with lips
drawn tight, i, -"I
don't want any one to go in my
place to fight."
So on he went cheerful to do his
While a handsome (?) slacker at
' home would sit,
Confident at the end he can sham off
When to the world he should be
branded a knave.
On his death-bed he lay with noises
I wished him to be where there
was no sound; s
But some kind comrades of old Com-
Went to cheer him for as long as
wiey couiu suiy.
Little did I know on that September
Only three months now passed away,
When he kissed me good-bye and
turned to hide his tears,
That it would be the last thru the re remaining
maining remaining years.
But God ordained that the brave boy
should not die
Far from home under a foreign sky.
But at Camp -Wheeler in a hospital
His spirit from his body fled to meet
Just as he ceased panting and in
death's stupor lay
There came a sweet smile for a min minute
ute minute to stay,
As though he saw some special
After that it can't be believed he
must answer sin."
Why do our rebellious hearts ache
with pain, J
When God must have foreseen it
would be our gain
To have our precious boy buried in
this sunny land
Than to fill a nameless grave in for for-.

Some of the sand mounds appear to

The human relics were found at Vero,
in St. Lucie county, and came to light
us the result of the construction of a
drainage canal made by the Indian
River Farms company; The fossil
were found in the banks df the canal
and belong, according to the state
geologist, to the geologic period
known as the Pleistocene; ;
Not only were human bones found
at Vero, but in addition there is pre preserved

animals thtia were living at that lime,
which were very different from the

believed by geologists to' be no less
than 10,000 .to 25,000 years. This find
