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.

can be trained and equipped, was pass passed
ed passed late yesterday by the House and
sent to the Senate.
The House broke its record for
speed on an army bill by taking the
final vote after a debate of only three
days on the measure framed to pro provide
vide provide an army of three million men
during the coming year, in accordance
with the government's revised pro program
gram program for rushing soldiers to France.
A call for 24,674 draft registrants
of grammar school education to be
sent to special training schools, was
issued today by Provost Marshal
Crowder. The men will be taken from
36 states.
In line with the increase in pas
senger fares, the i'ullman company
will shortly raise its rates for sleep-.

whose names we couldn't obtain. They
are well -trained soldiers, having
learned all the training camp can
teach them. They did not leave with
a parade this time. Home on a brief
furlough, they remained with their
relatives until the last minute, some
reaching the station barely in time to
catch the train. Most of them were
present about 4 o'clock, however, and
the station platform and waiting
rooms were crowded. Each bronzed
boy in khaki was the center of a little
group of his own, besides receiving
the good wishes of scores of friends,
who passed from one party to another
to give a last greeting. It was a
cheerful crowd until the train left.
Everybody helpe dto keep everybody
else's spirits up.
Miss Annie Davis, representing the
Red Cross, who has been working like
a quartermaster general, was on hand
with a dainty box of lunch for each
soldier. Pretty little Miss Margaret
Gerig pinned a daisy on each soldier
boy's blouse, and added to it a smile
as bright as the flower. There were
' scores of women and girls present, but
very few men. v..
When the northbound limited came
in, most of the boys climbed aboard,
tho' a few of the more active remain
ed on the platform, staying with their
friends to the last mmute. As usual,
the northbound train backed to make
way for the southbound, which came
in on time. It was noticeable that
there were no soldiers on the south southbound,
bound, southbound, the first time, the railroad men
said, in months. It passed on, and then
the north bound train came slowly
thru the station. It was thronged with
soldiers, our own and those from
points down the line, all "on the way
to Berlin." They were hanging out of
the windows, and sticking on to the
steps and platforms, till the train
looked like a study in brown. Bright

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 war time 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

Around the Comer
Around the corner I have a friend
In this great city that has no end;
Yet days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it a year is gone,
And I "never see my old friend's face;
For life is a swift and terrible race.

He knows I like him just as well 6h

As in the days when I rang his bell
And he rang mine. We were younger
And now we are busy, tired men
Tired with playing a foolish game;
Tired with trying to make a name
"Tomorrow," I say, "I will call on Jim,
Just to show that I'm thinking of
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow
And the distance between us grows
and grows.
Around the corner! yet miles away;
"Here's a telegram, sir," Jim died
today!" -And
that's what we get and deserve
in the end
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
