Moss Bluff, May 8. I noticed in
last week's Star that some one tried
to correct part of the news about the
trip made to Daytona by Mr. and
Mrs. Andrew Wood, Mr. Brown and
Miss Selma McKinney. But instead
of correcting it, the writer only made
it plainer. First, the article said the
gas gave out, "as often it does."
From that, I suppose, the gas must
have given out more often that it has
ben reported. Second, it was said the
gas gave out one-half mile sfrom the
home of Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Griggs,
and that it was four miles from where
the gas gave out to Moss Bluff. Now,
it is only two miles to Moss Bluff
from the home of Mr .and Mrs. T. H.
Griggs. (Go count the mile posts).
So from the writer's own statement,
it goes to prove that it was two miles
the other side of Mr. Griggs' home
where the gas gave out, instead of
one-half mile, like was stated. The
writer also stated that I, the Moss
Bluff correspondent, should be more
accurate in reporting local occur
rences. Now I think that you, the
"corrector," should be more accurate
in trying to correct local occurrences,
and also the distance of roads.

If Mr. Davis could point out any

glad to support him. But we don't
think he can allege against Mr. Clark

So it will be a three-cornered race.
We don't know how Ben will come
out. He has lots of friends who think
a whole lot of him, yet might vote for
some other candidate. Ben is a good

It has been the general impression
that the city manager is to be elected

The new charter, however, provides
that this is to be done on the first day
of June bi-annually. In yesterday's

stated that there were no applications

the office was to be filled at the meet meeting

Belleview, May 9. The third issue
of Liberty Bonds met with a hearty
reception in Belleview. Mrs. Ellen P.
Bush, who has worked for everything
and anything that was for the gooa
of Belleview for the past thirty years,
said: "I want to see Belleview do its
share and show up with other commu communities
nities communities and I want to do my bit," and
she came across for one thousand dol dollars
lars dollars worth of bonds. Mr. Louis
Schmidt, who has a boy across the
water doing his bit, came across
with some cash to help feed, clothe
and arm that boy. Mr. and Mrs. J.
O. Hightower, who have been fighting
the soil all their lives and wresting
rich returns therefrom, are now fight fighting
ing fighting Kaiser Bill with some of their
money. Messrs. A. C. Fiske, Eari

raise again for the sake of seeing the
beast's hand. A number of ladies, all
willing to contribute their share, mod modestly
estly modestly requested that their names be
not mentioned and we promised faith
fully not to divulge the great secret,
knowing full well that the complete
list of subscribers would be published
from Ocala. But we will keep our
word and keep it strictly sub rosa.
Altogether the people of Belleview
have subscribed about $3500 for the
third issue of Liberty Bonds against
$00 for the second issue of Liberty
Bonds. One little school miss had
some money in a New York savings
bank against the day when she would
go away to college. She laid her bank
book down and said she wanted to
register for Liberty Bonds. Mrs.
Shedd stirred up a few subscribers by
an energetic exposition of the just justness

Workers, as usual, were in the fore forefront

Ever realize that every dollar you spend makes some one
work? Of course the work was done before you spent your dollars,
but if you and many others didn't spend money for certain mieTes,
other men would cease to make them. They would then devote
their services to something else for which there was a dem rid.
Just now the demand for "Goods and Services" for war purpos s
is greater than the supply. Therefore, when you refrain from buy buying
ing buying the things not absolutely necessary for health and efficiency,
you are releasing labor and materials which our Government
needs to win the war.
