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.

these aims may be stated as follows: J

To win the war against autocracy;


to secure for nations small and great
safety, justice and equal economic
opportunity; and to establish a league
of nations.
This campaign has the express ap approval
proval approval of the president and it desires
to lead the whole people to see these
war aims as he sees them, and to do
s everything in their power to accom-
; plish them. The United States has no
other aims in this war than moral
aims. It does not desire territory,

nor indemnities, nor military glory,
nor to be intermeddling with the af affairs
fairs affairs of other nations. Our president
sees clearly that the existence of the
United States and of all other nations
of the- world as independent powers
is at stead. If Germany wins, there
will be no independent nations. All
will have to bow to the whims of the
kaiser and Prussian" aristocracy. Am America

strous monstrous idea. She has gone into the
,- war to make such a condition of
things impossible. All our people
must be brought to see this alterna alternative,
tive, alternative, and Wless they be pusilanimous
cowards and slaves they will see it,
and we will be willing to perish from
the earth rather than endure Prus Prussian
sian Prussian chains and slavery. The nation
of the world, big and little, must have
the right to rule themselves, so long
as they do not menace the moral
health of mankind. And all the peo-
pie must be brought into such a state
of intelligence and morality that they
will rule themselves wisely. Interna
tional rights must be established and
respected. A nation has no more right
to trespass upon the territory of an another

assault his neighbor and his family.
The tresspasser should be punished

it be a nation or ah individual. Then
there ought to be some way of pre preventing

grown, and an exorbitant egotism
which looks down upon the rest of
the world as an agglomeration of

And the only way, it seems, to get this
notion out of the Prussian is to shoot
it out. And this means that America
has to buckle down tb the disagree disagreeable

Charter No. 10578

Reserve District No. 6

We clip the following very perti pertinent
nent pertinent article from the Wall Street
t Blood ort Bread
Immediately upon the declaration
of war in 1914 a food question was
born. We did not see it then, but a
year, ago it was apparent. Since then
it has been developing so rapidly that
in another year it will outweigh all

other perils excepting that of Hunnic

domination. Not merely the belliger belligerent,
ent, belligerent, but the neutral countries are al

ready crying for food. V

Switzerland, for instance, is "hard

pressed and appealing to the United

States for help. Short as is our sup

ply, urgent as is our duty to feed our
allies, we cannot let this little neutral
country starve, and wash our hands

by saying it is none of our affair. We

are not Germans. The United States
is now making strenuous efforts to

get wheat to Switzerland to relieve
its distress.

The world crop returns need but to

be analyzed to prove that not only

Switzerland, but all the importing
countries of the world will soon be in
dire need of food. In 1916 the harvests
of Europe were ten per cent, smaller

than the average of the five years

preceding. That of last year was

smaller yet twenty per cent smaller.

It looks to North America for help;

yet this favored region produced

12 per cent less than the five-year

average. v.

When all' the people of these coun

tries of Europe and America eat to
their satisfaction they are wont to

consume. 2.000,000.000 bushels of

wheat every year. The combined crops

of this last harvest amounted to less

than 1,500,000,000. Where will the

balance come from? The unthinking

point to India and Australia. But

there are no ships to convey it, arid if

there were, the Mediterranean has
proved to be the most, dangerous

zone natrolled by the submarine. If

food were piled mountain high in

these countries, it would be to hungry

Europe and America like the fabled

cup of Tantalus.

But it is not there m such quanti

ties. The wheatof last year was piled

nr bags in the open. Mice and weevils

have done ; their work. Europe must

depend upon; the United States and

Canada-, arid they have not sufficient

wheat to supply the need. Cannot our
people realize that in eating potatoes,

corn and oats they are helping to

avert' a- world calamity? Barley

makes a good loaf. Potatoes can be

mashed 5 and-made into bread. Our an

Cestors ate corn; while the brawny

Scot eats oats; cannot we do the same

when the tteril is so great ?

A regiment of young men marched

fir Baltimore with a banner on which

was inscribed, "We have given our

selves; what have you given?" The

question is for everyone to answer. If
you cannot give your blood, at least

give bread.

The following by Minna Irving in
the New York Herald shows that the
spirit in many American women is,
and what it should be in all:
Our Soldier Boys in France
Since brother put the khaki on
And sailed away to fight,
The- smile has fled from mother's lips
And left her sad and white.
But of her troubles not a word
Creeps in by any chance
When mother writes a letter to
Our soldier boy in France.

Read the Star Want Ads. It pays

She goes about' the livelong day
As quiet as a ghost;
But nights when he came home from
J work
She misses him the most;
Though you would think that life for
Was just a song and dance,
If you could read her letters to
Our soldier boy in France.
He has enough of hardships now
Beyond the wide gray sea,
Where everything is death and pain
And mud and misery.
He must not know we sold the cow
To bury sister Nance,
Or bow we have to scrimp without
Our soldier boy in France.
She tells him Johnny learns, so fast
Next year hell graduate,
And how the hens are laying fine,
And Jimmy fixed the gate,
And Mamie at the factory
Has had a slight advance,
And how the town will honor him
When he comes home from France.
Oh, while our army oyer there
Is facing gas and steel,
Where red the rivers run beneath
The kaiser's iron heel,
The mothers here in freedom's cause
Can also break a lance
By writing cheerful letters to
Their soldier boys in France.
The many friends of that efficient

and popular young officer, First Lieut.
R. L. Marsh of Company A, were,
greatly pleased to see him on our
streets this morning, and were fur further
ther further pleased to learn he had brought
home with him a bride, who before
her marriage to Lieut. Marsh, last
Saturday night, was Miss Mamie Tid Tid-well
well Tid-well of Macon. She is a pretty and
charming young lady, and Lieut.
Marsh's friends congratulate him on
winning so fair a bride.
Lieut. Marsh will have but a brief

stay at home. He must go to Tampa
tomorrow, and will return to Camp
Wheeler in a few days. He says that
Company A is in good shape. Most of
the older men have been transferred
to other commands and their places
filled with drafted men. He says the
dispatch to Mr. Stevens of Crystal
River referring to men of Company
A leaving camp last night meant a
selected squad, the names of the men
in which were given in Saturday's
Star. He doesn't think the company,
as a company, will leave soon, tho of
course he doesn't know.
' A Pretty Service
The service given in honor of Mrs.

night :was a very pretty one. Shortly
after 8 o'clock, Miss Marguerite Por Porter
ter Porter took her place at the piano, while

the young ladies of her high, school
glee class took place on the stage. The
young ladies were accompanied by
Mr. Frank Gates, who carried a large

American flag. At the same time, a
score or more of the boy scouts lined
up in the first rows of the orchestra.
Miss Porter played and the glee
class sang Mrs. Ford's beautiful war
song, "Keep the Home Fires Burn Burning,"
ing," Burning," and the scouts and many in the
audience joined in the chorus. Im Immediately
mediately Immediately following this song, the
"Star Spangled Banner" was given,
the audience arising to its feet, and
scouts standing at attention with their
hands raised in salute.
It was a very pretty tribute to the
author of ;a patriotic song. It is a
pity that the very inclement weather
reduced the audience to probably a
fiftn of what it would have been on a
pleasant evening.
The scouts were the guests of the
Temple, to -see the picture, "The
