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.

Congressman Clark recommended to
the federal authorities as one of the
most substantial truck farmers in his

Mr. Clark pointed out that while
the truck growers of the state are
eager to patriotically do all they can
to help feed the world in the present

get cars to transport their produce
or must see it rotting while en route
to market, they are not at all inclined
to feel any great enthusiasm about
replanting other bumper crops for
next season's consumption.
The letter from Mr. Chamberlain,
filed by Congressman Clark with
Food Administrator Hoover and with
Director General of Railroads Mc
Adoo is in part as follows:
"We the' growers and shippers of

A brown-faced pair who walked the

And suddenly her tidy room
A prison seemed to be.

The beautiful fantasy presented by

idea is that of girlish devotion and
self-sacrifice. She must preserve si silence

while weaving a spell to restore her
seven lost brothers. She weaves in si silence
lence silence when implored to declare hei
love by Prince Charming, when a word
would restore her to her father, when
it means death at the stake if she
does not speak, weaves up to the last
moment, when horrible death is immi imminent,
nent, imminent, to be saved and restored to those
for whom she has risked so much.
Miss Clark endows the character with
great sweetness, submission and re repressed

qualities as an artist in subtle revela revelation

While it is difficult to make a story
of this kind interesting in these days

its appeal is to imagination and sym sympathy

acting, but even then many critics
said, "Yes, she's splendid actress, but
she surely isn't pretty." Even these
were won over Tuesday night, as in
that picture she took the part of a
society girl, with her hair beautifully

all of which made Miss Marsh an

Varieties of Pearls.
Among the varieties of so-called
pearls there are at times small dark
gray or blackish pearls, which are
more or less flattened and lack the
Jet black luster and perfect shape of
the so-called black pearls. These are
true pearls, probably secured from pin pinna
na pinna shell, and possess some small value.
They may be easily distinguished from
the false pearls by their color and
shape. Very small round pearls of a
golden luster are secured from a small
avicula that has a beautiful golden
luster on the inside. The avicula shell
Is usually less than six centimeters in
diameter, and I have never seen a p4arl
produced by this shell that was larger
than a No. 6 shot. The big, perfectly
round yellow pearls offered for sale
are usually frauds.

Possible to Be Too Abrupt.
It is said that W. S. Gilbert, the
English dramatist, when he called on
his friends, always made a quick exit.
His alert temperament was evidently
opposed to dawdling. He knew how
tedious lingering farewells could be.
Now and then one meets some one
of his kind, alert, definite, considerate
of others and of himself as welL
But, of course, In this regard it Is
possible to overdo. There are those
who leave so quickly that they create
a sense of abruptness and possibly of
concern as well. Their departure may
be followed by such remarks as "Why
