though Although Mr. Ottmann said, that after
having heard the governor of our own
state, and the ex-governor of Ten
nessee, speak on the subject of pat
riotism, that he felt that he was un
dertaking a very large task to give a
patriotic talk, he handled the subject
with so much force that every club
woman present surely received an in- J
spiration which will cause the fires of
patriotism to burn more brightly than
ever before. His definition of patriotr
ism, which he said was "a love and
devotion to one's country that would
lead to a willing sacrifice of self and
all we possessed," was the idea he
expressed throughout his speech in a
nutshell. He spoke feelingly of the
great difference in the outlook be between
tween between our country now and four years
ago. We are in war, learning a new
lesson. We are no longer living in a
world of enjoyment, given to making
money, as we were when the war came
on, for since we have been drawn into
this great conflict, a spirit of fairness
and justice to the whole world is our
aim. And today free Cuba stands as a
lasting proof of our intentions. We
are daily being drawn more closely to
gether. From east to west, north to
south, we stand as a united nation. In
a larger way to push this matter to
an end, we need something, more than
enthusiasm. We in America need to
learn to deny ourselves, to the hunger
point, and yet give out that bright brightness
ness brightness and cheer to the suffering and
dying which we alone can give.

That close the pestilence are broke
And crowded cities wail. its stroke;
Come in consumption's ghastly form,
The earthquake shock, the lightning
Come when the heart beats high and

And thou art terrible: the tear,
The groan, the knell, the pall, the bier,
And all we know, or dream, or fear,
Of agony are thine.
But to the hero, when his sword
Has won the battle for the free,
Thy voice sounds like a prophet's
And in its hollow tones are heard
The thanks of millions yet to be.
Come when his task of fame is
Come with her laurel-leaf, blood blood-bought;

Thy sunken eye's unearthly light
To him is welcome as the sight
Of sky and stars to prisoned men;
Thy grasp is welcome as the hand
Of brother in a foreign land.
A Comforting Message
Mr. and Mrs. Burford received this
morning the following comforting
message from their oldest son, Lieut.
Robert Allen Burford.
Lieutenant Burford is in the navy,
and his message is not only a com comfort
fort comfort to his parents but an inspiration
to all other patriotic young men.
Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 17.
Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Burford, Ocala:
Dear mother and father. We are
heart-broken and you have all our
love and sympathy. I pray God that
I may avenge his death. Change
Wiley's star to gold in the service
flag. Be comforted that he died a
noble death, killed in action. We are
proud of our poor, dear brother. With
all our love. Robert.
Saturday morning and afternoon,
Mr. and Mrs. Burford received several
letters from Wiley. Written at differ different
ent different times, they all came at once. They
were bright and interesting letters,
describing the young officer's life in
France, and will be treasures to his
loved ones as long as they live. His
mother had finished reading the last
of them but a few minutes before the
arrival of the telegram that told of
the death of her soldier son.
Mr. and Mrs. Burford are bearing
up bravely under their great sorrow.
Sustaining Mr. Burford in his grief
is his pride in his boys one sleeping
in a glorious grave; the others ready
to do and dare all things for the same
great cause. Mrs. Burford is for the
time prostrated, for it is a hard task
for a mother to balance even the
cause of the nation against the life of
a beloved child, but she too will in
time emerge from the valley of sor
row and smile thru her tears when
she thinks of the brave young life
laid on the altar of patriotism.

Burford are expected home this after afternoon

but of hundreds of thousands of oui

take charge of the shipbuilding in industry,

wages and make them work. If they

While You Are Here, Why Wot Provide Agmnst Mure Fuel Shortages
By Arranging tor a Florida Home That Can Be Made Self-Supporting?
Many Florida visitors have "done their bit" in the conservation of fuel by closing
their homes. Fuel conditions in the North may not be improved next winter.
The thought of owning one's own home in Florida naturally must be of appeal
under these circumstances, especially if it can be made self-sustaining.
Purchasers of homes at Lakeland Highlands have such unusual assurances to this
effect that properties here are selling rapidly to people who have fully investigated them.
