killed some fine hogs four weeks ago
and has cured the meat just as good
as the cold storage people could have

crops this year this section of the

A GENUINE SLACKER
A young man at a small town, in
southeastern Levy County is feeling
much worse now, than if he were still
wearing Uncle Sams uniform. The
young man was at Camp Wheeler in
the draft. He wanted to get out. His
daddy made affidavit that he was
blind and could not live many weeks
and the war department gave the
young man a discharge. Neighbors
say the affidavit is plain garden var variety
iety variety perjury, that dad can see as well
as he ever could.
The young man received many
Christmas presents, little toy guns
fake telegrams, doll uniform and all
kinds of things and his life is very
burdensome to' him. Worst of all, his
sweetheart, a red blooded American
girl, told him he was a slacker and she
was done with him.
In a very courteous letter, J. G.
Kirkland, division passeenger agent
of the Atlantic Coast Line, notifies
the Star that his road must for the
present discontinue its advertising.
This was, of course, what we expect
ed when the government took charge.
Mr. Kirkland, in his letter, refers to
the pleasant relations between his
road and the Star, and while the ex
pression was probably carboned to a
number of other papers, we can tes
tify that so far as the Star is con
cerned it has been true. We have not
been one of the Atlantic Coast Line's
bootlickers on the contrary, we have
often and severely criticised it for its
shortcomings, and have the testimony
of its officials that the criticisms were
always noticed, often resented and
sometimes heeded. However, th
Coast line has always kept its ad
vertisement in ; the Star and its offi
cials have always been among the
Star's personal friends, and we would
be glad if there was the general good
feeling between the public and all
other roads that we have ever found
evident in the case of the A. C. L.
While' we are debating the subject
of whether to carry on the fair or not,
the ; Star would venture to make this
proposition. Why cot try the plan

Most of the people who exhibit care
mostly for the honor of taking a prize

to pay men who bring in prize hogs
or beeves or large exhibits of produce
money enough to repay them for their
outlay. They don't care for the
money, in fact; they only compete for
the honor, and to help make the f air
look good We believe a great ma majority

President Wilson, in his address to
Congress Tuesday, has done what has
been so persistently demanded for
months by Germans, pro-Germans,
pacifists and doubters, and he cer certainly
tainly certainly made a complete job of it. He
set forth the aims of America that
isrto say, of the Allies in the war;
and he set them forth clear-cut and
in full. His utterances were on the
same line with those of Lloyd George
a few days before, but they went into
the subject more fully and set it forth
more emphatically. He said just what
he should have said he might have
said a little more, but he didn't say
a word too much, and it is for Amer America
ica America to back him up to the last man and
the' last dollar unless it is willing for
another, wave of barbarism to sweep
over the earth.
The United States will have to win
this war by sheer weight of men,
material and money. We have great
strength, great wealth, great cour courage

fully awakened, great capacity for
sacrifice. But we have too much indus industrial

too much carelessness to keep our

tempt contempt for our enemies to estimate
them at their full value until they
inflict on us a disaster that will turn
us to ice with horror before we react
into white-hot wrath. This year of
1918 will not be soon forgotten by

Girls, we are now beginning a new
year's work. Those of you who have
worked as club members understand
your obligations as such and will be begin
gin begin work at once. We want 1918 to
excell any of the years that have gone
before. Let us make it a state-wide
record breaker. Don't stop with your
own plans, but talk to the girl who is
yet on the outside, encourage her to
join our ranks and give her every
assistance in your power. We want
a larger membership this year and
better organized team work. Don't
recall the hardships of last year or
any other year, let's wipe our slate
clean and begin all over. The girl
who in her mind failed before maj
be the winner this year. What we
call failures are often blessings in
disguise, a lesson, not thoroughly
learned, maybe not understood, but
on going over more carefully usually
leads to success. WTiat is generally
termed failure by the girl, is often
the fault of the girl herself, as well
as climatic or crop conditions. It
isn't that she fails to do her work,
but more often that she neglects to
keep a record of what has been done.
Then there comes a time of reckoning.
She cannot make a correct report.
She has possibly kept no notes for
her essay r (and it's only facts and
figures that count) so quite naturally
she feels that she has failed, and even
allows herself to go on record as such.
But girls! let's see just how few fail failures
