A Most Necessary Industry Just
Started Up Under Favorable
A representative of the Star went
today to the new plant of the H. A.
Shaver Company, which has been in installed
stalled installed and is ready to be put into
operation in the big building of the
Ocala citrus packing house. The ma machinery
chinery machinery has been placed around, in an
"L" shape, outside of the citrus ma machinery
chinery machinery and both plants can be oper operated,
ated, operated, in seasons, without interfering
with the other.
Mr. Shaver, with his -partner, Mr.
E. L. Rader, who will be in activw
charge of this plant, were there and
explained the machinery to the Star
There is on hand a carload of cans
and enough can labels and packing packing-cartons
cartons packing-cartons in the house to finish the first
carload, and another carload of cans
will come in each week.
The machinery is very simple and
of the best. It is all ready and tht
gentlemen turned on the. current and
sealed a couple of cans for the visi visitors.
tors. visitors. The capacity of the plant, with,
adequate help, running night and. day,
will be 24,000 cans in 24 hours, 1000
cans per hour. The beans are strung
by hand, but all the other processes
are entirely handled by machinery.
The beans are cut into proper lengths,
scalded and blanched, are then put
into the No. 2 cans and carried to the
sealing 1 machine on a belt conveyor,
where they are sealed at the rate of
60 a minute. They go from the ma machine
chine machine to the cooking vats, where the
capacity is sufficient for the full ca capacity
pacity capacity of the other machinery.
The beans are cooked for two hour
in the vats by steam-heated water,
lifted out by the huge steel cages,
carried on an elevator to the trucks,
thence to the labeling tables, where
the labels are put on very rapidly.
The labels themselves are a work
of art and certainly advertise Florida.
The beans are canned under the "Pen "Peninsular
insular "Peninsular Brand." The labels bear a
good map of Florida, showing the lo locations
cations locations of the plants at Miami, Pal Palmetto,
metto, Palmetto, Plant City, Starke and Ocala
in red ink, and wherever they go will
advertise the state.
Mr. Shaver stated that practically
his entire output for the season is al already
ready already sold. He has contracted for 150
acres of beans in the Ocala section
and does not anticipate any difficulty
in getting material to can, nor in get getting
ting getting help to run the plant.
Mr. Shaver himself will be here
only part of the time, as there is work
to do at Starke, and after that the

The packer stancis between these conflicting conflicting-demands,

The packer has no control over the prices of live

of him is that he keep the difference between the

by converting animals into meat and distributing
the meat at a minimum cf expense, and at a profit

Meeting of a Missionary Society
Tuesday afternoon the Christian
church missionary society held an un unusually
usually unusually interesting meeting. The pro
gram was a fine one and carried out in j
a most fitting manner. Mrs. Jennie ;
Whitfield was the leader for the aft-
ernoon, and after the reading of the
scripture lesson she gave some in-j
structive notes on the lesson, after i
which Mrs. Winston sang clearly and i
sweetly and with much feeling, "Some t
Day You Will Know Why."
A paper entitled "The Foreigner in
Our Midst," was given by Mrs. F. E.
Wetherbee, and was received with
absorbing interest, followed by an
equally interesting paper prepared
by the society's efficient president,
Mrs. J. B. Cappleman, entitled, "The
Emigrant Woman Our Charge."
"The Obligations of the Quiet Mem Member"
ber" Member" were the test questions asked
and answered by the class.
A beautiful poem entitled "A
World's Heartache," was read with
tender expression by Miss Mamie
Taylor, which was followed by song
and prayer. I
These meetings are becoming more
and more entertaining as well as

work? Of course the work was done before you speru your dollars,
but if you and many others didn't spend money for certain articles,
other men would cease to make them. They would then devote
their services to something else for which there was a demand.
Just now the demand for "Goods and Services" for war purposes
is greater than the supply. Therefore, when you refrain from buy buying

That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the eemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's

buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
