A few weeks ago we began work

The money is for our suffering

soldiers arid sailors, and theirs, who
stand like a wall of steel between our
homes and suffering such as our allies
Buying liberty bonds is business
it's scattering bread on the waters,
with the certainty the bread will come
back with butter on it. It's insurance
for fire and life. Giving to the Red
Cross is sentiment it's duty, it's
lessening the suffering, lightening the
toil, of those who are offering and in
many instances giving all for us.
"Greater love hath no man," and this
love for God and home and native
land is what keeps the rampart on
land and seaNbetween our quiet homes
and the most cruel enemy who ever
defiled the handiwork of God.
Let us give all we can and then
some. Let no one think he can do too
much. We may give till it hurts, but
our soldiers and sailors have gone to

the sword and the bugle, and reached
his hand toward the sword. The king
and all his knights stirred, whereupon
the frightened peasant drew back
his hand from the sword belt and In- j
stead took the horn and blew a feeble
note. The knights laid their hands
upon their sword belts and the king
raised himself and opened his eyes,
but seeing the sword yet 'hanging on
the wall laid down to sleep again.
And then a blast of wind blew thru
the cave and carried the peasant out
with it. America, a year ago, blew
the liorn before she drew the sword.
But, unlike the peasant she has gone
back after the sword, and she has the
might to swing it, too.
One great reason, among others,
why we should sustain the Red Cross
to the full extent of our ability is that
it is the sole link of humanity between
our people and such of our men as
may be prisoners in Germany. All
packages of food, money, letters, etc.,
that go into the enemy country for
our unfortunate men- are taken to
them by the Red Cross, which has, in
spite of "f rightfulness," managed to
retain some sort of a hold on the Teu Teuton
ton Teuton organization of the same nam.
Not many Americans are prisoners in
Germany, and we hope the number
shall not be greatly added to, but we
do not want to overlook anything we
can do to make easier the lot of those
who have that ill fortune.

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 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

The Commencement Sermon
Commencement day dawned bright
and fair yesterday which is an omen
of the success which is to follow.
The commencement sermon was de
livered at the Temple theater at 11
o'clock by Rev. G. A. Ottmann, rector
of Grace Episcopal church, who had
arranged the order cf the exercises,
which were beautiful indeed, and car
ried out to the letter with precision
and taste and without a flaw.
The stage was tastefully decorated
with oleanders, magnolias and ferns,
with the Red Cross fittingly placed
in the center. The music was fur,
nished by the Episcopal choir, assist assisted
ed assisted by the choirs of the other churches,
and all the congregations of the' city
joined in the hour of worship. Miss
Irma Blake was the pianist for the oc occasion,
casion, occasion, James Ellis the cross bearer
and Frances Pasteur the flag bearer.
After the announcement of the ex
ercises for the day, Rev. Ottmann took
his text from' the 8th verse, 6th chap chapter
ter chapter of Isiah: "Here am I, send me."
Some special points of the sermon:
Those whom God chooses, he lifts
up and gives to them a vision. God
does not choose the high and mighty
as his instruments; he takes the ord
inary men and women, whose spirits
soar above the level, and gives them
a vision which enables them to see
above' the things of ordinary life.
Visions necessary to choice: There
are things to do. Were all dreamers
we would soon be bowing down to the
kaiser as supreme ruler. But men
looking out into the world had seen
visions of universal peace, of a dem democracy
ocracy democracy where our wives, daughters
and children could live in safety. Oui
boys are giving their lives that the
world may be lifted up. Thus wt
should look toward the great thing
of life so when the call comes we can
say "Here am I, send me." Thus wo
may do the work of God and human humanity

finished, but have only fitted our ourselves
selves ourselves to take up our work. We are
pupils as long as life lasts and only
graduate when the final step is taken
that calls us into the larger life. God
is calling today as never before, for
us to arise from our dreamland sleep;
even here in our own little city, we
are not united in the greatness of
work as we should be, and what won wonderful
derful wonderful works might be accomplished
if we were! What a spiritual uplift
we might attain. How the morals of
our community might be uplifted.
How many in our town have taken a
deep interest in the Boy Scouts? How
many have worked for the civic inter- j
est, for the young men and women of
our town? What wonderful possibili possibilities
ties possibilities might be in store for Ocala if
time were spend in bringing it up to

if we are not ready when the call

plans to regulate the affairs of life.
Those who have grown old, whose en
thusiasm has grown weak, seem often
inclined to resent the optimism of the
young, but down in our hearts we
know we would give much of our hard
earned wisdom for their bright, clear
minds, which know not near so many
problems, but solve those that comb
much easier and quicker than our
time-worn brains. And we also know
that not for anything would we take
away their happy optimism and force
upon them in their young and happy
days the pessimism that is apt to
come later. And this morning's ex exercises

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
. That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in wartime may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And. if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
