Dear Senator Fletcher: Referring
to our' recent cbrrespondence rela relative

trate nitrate of Soda at Jacksonville, you will
be interested to know that reports
received to date from Florida indicate
that Florida farmers have applied foi
less than 1500 short tons of nitrate of
soda. The Margaret carries about
4500 long tons or approximately 5000
short tons. You will readily see that
if the Margaret had been sent tr.
Jacksonville we would have -had ifc
Jacksonville 3500 tons of nitrate in
excess of the quantity actually ap applied
plied applied for by Florida farmers. This
figure of 3500 tons is based upon the
assumption that it will not be neces
sary to reduce the quantity applied
for by each farmer. If it should be become
come become necessary to make an allotment
to each farmer of a smaller portion
than that which he applied for, the
quantity remaining on our hands at
Jacksonville would have been corres correspondingly
pondingly correspondingly greater than 3500 tons.

was issued-yesterdays through the

states that there were 279 officers

put the total deaths at 140.

Many Ocala residents are doing
their bit to supply food for their own
tableland the country and there are
hundreds of attractive gardens in the
city, many of which will produce
more garden stuff than the family
can use. A Star man, arising this
morning very early, ; took a ramble
over the second v ward and found
scores of gardens that did his heart
good to look at. Many of the gardens
had as high as a dozen different vege vegetables
tables vegetables growing, and many a fine
strawberry bed. Mr. Henry Sistrunk
has-almost an acre in garden truck,
which he works personally ?in the
early mornings and late in the after afternoons,
noons, afternoons, not only growing a great deal
of food, but, keeping himself in fine
physical condition. By the way, there
is no better exercise for one living
a sedentary life than wielding the
garden hoe and plow.

This being Washington's birthday,

"The truth may make you free, but
it will also lay you up in a hospital
