The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

do its best work with bolts out and
parts broken. Food will win the war
and any American farmer who fails
to take every possible precaution to
secure a plentiful supply of food is
indirectly aiding the enemy. All
farmers know that one of the biggest
sources for loss of labor is to have
machinery break during a rush time
and not to have repair parts handy.
Every farmer knows that certain
parts of his equipment are given to
breaking and he should see to it that
he has extra parts on hand to replace
the broken parts and get the machine
running again in the quickest possible
time. Often times a machine from a
casual examination, looks to be in
good shape, but a careful going ovei

Animus of the Appeal Made by Mrs.

made by Mrs. Howard Gould in New
York to "band together for the black
women of the south" and to "Strangle

opinion of Representative Frank Clark
of the Second Florida District, to
awaken the South to a great menace

"Have I read the renort of the

ed at a negro meeting in New York a

I have. How a supposedly educated
and cultivated white woman can get
her own consent to attend and address
such a meeting at all is beyond my

audience, and urges them to pursue

the purpose of those fostering thisj

Mr. Hinton and his neighbor, Mr.
Brooklen. It was the first time we
have had the pleasure of meeting the
latter gentleman, but he said he felt
well acquainted with us, for when he'

The reason why J. M. Thomas and

because they were aboard an auto automobile,

An airplane is best, but as the wai

to be thirty miles, but Jimmy Thomas,

fault with the rule that the longest
way round is the shortest way found,
and cut a road thru the scrub short shortening

Yonce drove the car. He used to be

we were thirty years younger and had

Just beyond Pedro, the car turned
west, and after passing two or three
more thriving farms it struck into the
road that Jimmy Thomas cut diag diagonally

The party arrived at the grove
about 10:15 and put in the next hour
and a half looking it over. The grove
was called fairy because previous to
the freeze of a little over a year ago
it was the best place in Florida for
fairies to romp in, and island because

orange sour-orange grove, and then some smart
man came along and grafted sweet
oranges on the sour stock. This man
was one of the original grafters,
which were different from the kind
we have now. When you see a man
doing that sort of work these days,
you had better say he is budding, for
if you say he is grafting he will hit
you unless you are much the biggest.
This graft at Fairy Island was better
than the one now suspected to be on
at Hog Island, and the fame of the
Fairy Island Grove pervaded all this
part of Florida.
A couple of years ago, Fairy Isl Island's
and's Island's trees were loaded with bloom,
and if the perfume thereof could
have been bottled it would have
scented all the weddings in the Unit United
ed United States. There isn't so much bloom
now,.,'cause in January 1917 there
came a freeze that made us poor
crackers draw up like so many burnt
boots, and put a crimp in our wealth
like the wrinkle in the neck of an
elephant. That freeze didn't observe
rules anymore than a zeppelin; it
bounced right over the protecting
hammock line and sat down in the
middle of Fairy Island like a tramp
in a flowerbed. Also, instead of
freezing things for one night and
then going back to Saskatchewan, as
any respectable freeze would do, it
kept on freezing, till all the wood for
firing the grove had gone, and still
kept on freezing until Fairy Island
looked like Goblin Island.
The trees looked like they would be
of no more use except for firewood,
but Mr. Thomas has a lot of that
spirit which won't let a man know
when he is beat, so he went to work!

sure rehabilitate is the right word,
but it looks good, and we mean he
tried to restore the grove to its for

well, and some are much finer trees

for Florida to know she could raise

it is as well.
Noticing many bees scouting amid
the orange blossoms, for. the trees are
loaded with bloom, we asked Mr.
Thomas if he had any hives. He said
no, but there were several bee trees
in and around the grove. We saw
several of the little toilers leave the
flowers and take that almost straight

You will follow its battle flag,
You will hear the sound of slaughter,
In valley, or plain, or crag.

From a merry mate,
To send you, a stripling soldier,
Out to the field of fate.
But when the good work is over,
And your share in the strife is done,
I shall be proud of the lad I lent,
I shall be proud to say I sent
My son,, my son.

Did I keep him with "mine and

In the darkened days to be?

Could he do what all good men do ?

His khaki brave, and his gun,

I would see them pass on the other

are the so-called "centros," which were
founded under Spanish rule, by men of
Spanish birth, in order to furnish a
bond and a meeting place for men
from the same province of Spain. Thus
the "Centro Gall ego" was founded for
Galicians, and the "Centro Astruino"
for Austrlans. The former of these Is
now the largest club In the world.
Besides these centros, there are nu numerous

clubs for the laboring man, where for

club goes so far as to maintain an
asylum. On the other hand exclusive
clubs of the conventional type are not
lacking clubs for the rich, yacht clubs,
athletic clubs and political clubs. Ha Havana's

mock hummock against which the horse of King
William HI (William of Orange)
stumbled while riding in Hampton
court. The king was thrown heavily
to the ground, breaking his collar bone.
A severe Illness ensued under which
the king's feeble constitution gave

1702. He left no children and the
crown passed to Anne, a sister of Wil William's
