Dear Mr. Williams: At the request

are located in a city, as is often the
case, one being of private and one of

possible to do so.
There are a number of cases of
this character in Florida with respect
to which we will communicate with
you at a later date. In the jneantime,
we are anxious to take hoW of cases
of a particularly salient character and
to bring about any economy which
may be practicable.
It is not our object at this time to
issue a direct order, but rather to
show the interests in question that
they should get together as a purely
patriotic measure. As you appreciate,
of course, there is just so much fuel
to go around, and it is essential that
this fuel be made to go as far as pos possible

Some of the voters of this section
would like to hear thru the Star from
the candidates for the senate, and

the "fence law." I have seen a short
piece from Mr. Howell from which I
am informed he. is in favor of passing
a No-Fence Law. Mr. Crosby, I be believe,
lieve, believe, opposes passing such a, law at
the present time. We would also like
to know of any other measures the
propose to enact. These -are times
when our law makers should consider
what would be for the greatest good
to the greatest number of people,
in order that this majority may be
able to render the most efficient ser
vice to our government in this time
of disasters. In regard" to this so
called "No-Fence Law," should it
be passed 51 this time, it would be
detrimental to four-fifths of the peo people
ple people of the state. The "No-Fence," ad
vocates must know that the great
majority of the cattle and hogs of the
state are raised on the open range.
If these range cattle and hogs were
cut off, we will have about four meat
less days instead of one. For this
reason, if for no other, such a law
would be against the working people
of the towns and country too.. For
nearly half of the farmers, their meat
and money, would be cut down fifty
per cent, or more, while of the re remainder

affected as they have to keep their
farms fenced anyway, in order to fat
ten, and pasture their hogs and cattle,
so only a small proportion would be
benefited, and these go in almost
entirely for truck and cotton farming
arid do not try to raise any stock.
Another thing, as I understand, there
is less than one-tenth of the area of
Marion county, also of the state, un under

passed, there would be absolutely no
benefit derived f fom the other nine nine-tenths

what Brazil has done in the face of
these natural and alien handicaps.
She saw through the German propa propaganda,

body and soul.
At heart Brazil is pro-French. Cul
tured Brazilians all speak French.
Their literary models, and text books,
particularly in the technical schools,
are French. Despite the "made in
Germany" curse, their most cherished
imports are from Paris.
Last fall we found that recruiting
and mobilization were going on every
where. Men in palm-thatched houses,
on the edge of the world, two and
even three weeks' journey from a
river boat, are sending their sons out
to fight autocracy and the kaiser. One
old man, living in an isolated galley,
a man who had never seen Germany
even on a map; who never got a news
paper from one year's end to the
other, stated the case for the whole
matto: "There is.no. room is our
world for Germany senor!" he said.
Brazil has not yet been asked to
send troops. Her present importance
is to be a storehouse for the 'Allies.
Thousands of tons of beans, coffee,
leather," minerals and cotton are being
shipped to France. But her greatest
sacrifice was when she sent over 300
doctors by request, because they were
trained under the French school of
medicine. As we know Brazil sadly
needs all her doctors at home.
At one Brazilian port we boarded a
narrow, small boat, built for the Ama Amazon

have the skipper tell us that he was

that his father had been unable to buy
