My Dear One I'm writing this Tery,
very small and on the thinnest of pa paper,

for the tiniest part of an inch upon all
the new things that you must have

and pen and writing pad, the lists
and numbers and names and ciphers,
the address book and the thin manual
you have been studying so bard and
the slim little Bible, for this letter is
a part of your equipment, too. or at
least I like to think that it is.
I'm going to tell you in It Just one
or two of the things we've been try trying
ing trying not to say In these last days. You've
said to yourself, haven't you, that
there were possibilities that I, -thank
God, hadn't seemed to think of.
You've marvelled gratefully, haven't
yon, that I could say goodby with
dry eyes and talk about what we
should do when the war is over. My
dear, there Is nothing nothing that
can happen to you that I haven't fore foreseen
seen foreseen In every detail since May, since
the very beginning of it all. I know
that some of our men are not going to
come back. I know as I write this
In the room you love that your fin fingers
gers fingers may fumble for this little piece
of paper In some dreadful hour, a
month or two months or six months
from now, Just to read It over once
more for the last time. Just to feel
In your fingers out there in a shell
Hglifed battlefield something that I
have touched for goodbye.
And thinking of all this for almost
a year while you've been getting
redy to go I've been getting ready to

stay. Just a3 you planned I planned,
and I said to myself: "When the time
comes for us to part I shall make him
a 4 promise." Dear one, this is my
promise, and I make it for the term
of your own "for the duration of the
present war."
I promise you that while you are
away, whether It is months or years,
nothing except what I can give you
and give all the others shall fill my
life. I promise you that I shall de devote
vote devote myself, here In safety, to the
work of making what you do easier
and stronger and safer for you. I
promise you that I shall give and
give and give for the Cause 1 Not
the money I can spare, not the time
I have left when everything else is
done, but all the money, all the time,
all the energy I have
Your whole life has been altered,
has been set to sterner and graver
music. So shall mine be. You will
know self denial, privation and fatigue
while the war lasts. So shall I know
them. Even If black news comes, even
if the blackest comes, I shall remem remember
ber remember that against your brave heart this
promise is resting, and I shall go pn.
And while there Is one man among our
million and among the millions of our
allies who needs clothing and nursing
and comforts and solace for your sake
I shall not fall him.
Perhaps In God's goodness this note
will come safely back to me In the
olive drab pocket, and we will smile
over It together. But. remember, until
that hour comes I shall be always busy
filling my own small place In the great

Meat is eaten in the large cities of the
East, and by our boys in France thousands

The day of transporting live animals from ranch to
seaboard and overseas has passed. There was too much
waste. The modern packer locates his large and special-
ized plants in the producing regions. He ships the
dressed beef in refrigerator cars, and holds it in his own
reirigerated branch warehouses until delivered to the
retailer. For shipment to foreign ports, he transfers the
meat to refrigerated ships.
By means of his nation-wide organization the

Our little city was shocked and
saddened this morning to learn: that
Mrs. D. M. Smith had passed away at
her home on South Second street at
midnight last night.
The news of her death was unex unexpected,
pected, unexpected, for altho Mrs. Smith had" been
in feeble health for several months,
no one but her closest relatives su suspected
spected suspected how ill she was. Her indom indomitable
itable indomitable will kept her up, and only ten
days before her death she made at the
meeting of the Woman's Club an ad address
dress address on "American Art" that requir required
ed required much careful study to give.
Mrs. Smith, or "Miss Jessie," as all
her friends called her, was a womait
who impressed her personality on our
little town. She came here from St.
Louis, Mo., when a girl some time in
the eighties. About a dozen years- ago,

she became the wife of our good old

Smith. Always,

from her childhood, she has been a
person of active and decided char character.
acter. character. Having read deeply the works
of the best authors, she was exceed exceedingly
ingly exceedingly well informed, and was quite
an authority herself on questions of
art and history. She was a member
of the Daughters of the Confederacy
and the Woman's Clubs and a good
worker for both. She always threw
herself heart and soul into any cause
she espoused, and there never was any
doubt on which side she stood" on any
question. She was a warmhearted
and faithful friend, always willing to
do anything in her power for those
she loved or esteemed; Generous,
kind and brave, she made in the

hearts of all who knew her a place

that can never be filled.
The death of Mrs. Smith is a sore
bereavement to her husband, to whom
she has been a good comrade as well
as wife these past dozen years. She
was an enthusiastic lover of sports
and travel, and together they toured
the north and west, standing side by
side to shoot big game; also, visiting

the most famous scenery and art cen centers
ters centers of Europe. Besides Dr. Smith,

Mrs. Smith's only relatives in the city
are her brother and wife, Mr. and
Mrs. G. T. Maughs, and her niece,
Mrs. W. Mj Wagnon, of Tampa. Her
stepson, .Lieut. V. M. Smith, to whom
she was devoted, and her dearly be beloved
loved beloved nephew, Merton Mann, were
both too far away to be sent for to
attend the funeral.

The last services for Mrs. Smith

will be held at her home at 5 o'clock
this afternoon, and interment will be
made in Greenwood.

"Speaking of money," said my sea seafaring

see what the inside the pitcher show
theater looked like just once before
she died, why, old Goodfield and his
wife says that was the last straw, and
they fixed up and had her hauled off
to live on the county. His wife was
just the same as him, too.
"Well, along about the middle o'
the hard winter, three years ago,
Goodfield took sick, and Ws wife told
the neighbors they both thought it
was a pretty good thing, comin' on
him In the cold weather that way, be because
cause because fuel was so high and a person
in bed don't need to use any. They
wouldn't hear of callin in the doctor,
and for two or three weeks the neigh neighbors
bors neighbors and old friends, most of 'em, was
sure he was goin' to die, but then
he begun to look. so well there didn't
hardly seem to be much hope.,
Old Goodfield Walks In.
"He got to goin' out and shamblin
around again, and for awhile there
wasn't nobody Doticed anything much
different I reckon I was the first,
and it come about mighty queer. It
was like this: I was workin in my
shack one night pretty late, tryin' to
spell out what was the matter with a'
carburetor I'd brought up from my
boat, when there come a tap on the
door, and old Goodfield walks in. I
was kind o' surprised to see him, but I
didn't say nothln' cept 'Good evenin','
and all of a sudden he sayJ 'Do you
know how much moDeyra'worth?'


Everybody seems to realize just
now that co-operation is the order of,
the day, whether it be in building'
ships, operating railroads or selling
cucumbers, but we didn't know until;
Sunday morning that it had its place j
even in running a Sunday school
class. We can well remember the
time in the long, long ago when as a
good little boy we went to Sunday
school, both morning and afternoon,
on each Sabbath day, and that the
teacher was the whole push, he doing
all the talking and all the reading,
while the boys were debating the
merits of the game played the after afternoon
noon afternoon before.
But all this is changed today and
the teacher or leader who can get an
expression of opinion in regard to
the lesson being studied from the
greatest number of individuals in a
class, is the most successful along
that iine'of work, because he keeps
the closest attention of the students.
Today the teacher of a Bible class
is the Pershing or Foch or Haig. He
studies the work from every angle
and lays out his plans, but it is the
boys and men cn the benches who
do the work. They are the men on
the firing line or in the trenches and
it is up to them to carry out those
plans to a successful conclusion, and
nowhere can a better illustration of
this be found than in the men's Bible
class of the Methodist church of
Ocala under the leadership of Mr. M.
M. Little.
Sunday morning by the unavoid unavoidable
able unavoidable absence, thru sickness, of Mr.
Little, the class was in charge of Mr.
A. C. Blowers. He evidently had made
a thorough study of the lesson and
one can imagine how interesting it
was made by th epart taken by such
men as Dr. A. L. Izlar, Mr. H. M.
Hampton, Mr. J. P. Phillips, Mr.
Crago and Messrs. Baxter, Lattimer,
Bryant, Taylor, Colbert, McAteer,
Stripling, Clyatt and Tompkins, to together
gether together with others whose names are
not known to us. We can't help think thinking
ing thinking that there are many men in thi3
city if they did but know it who
would be both interested and benefit benefited

Editor Star: Several days ago, and
again yesterday, I visited a friend of
mine on the other side of town, and
both times some of her neighbors who
have airguns, kept shooting at birds
the whole time I was there. My friend
said one afternoon one of the shots
hit her in the back, and that her hus husband
band husband who happened to be sitting in
the swing with her at the time, called
to them to be careful, where they
shot. If the birds are killed off this
way we won't be able to raise any
vegetables on account of the worms.

That's easy to "answer you want everything that the ingenuity of man has
invented; that science could develop, and an American, accustomed to the best,
You want comfort to the point of luxury in riding qualities.
You demand a car that in outward appearance is one you and your family can
be proud to be seen in.
You insist on artistic lines in a body that is in accord with the prevailing fashions.
Upholstery that feels as easy as it looks that is as durable as the best.
And withal a finish in details and in the ensemble that looks the part your car is
to play in your daily life.
Speed, you desire, equal to any occasion and power equal to any emergency.
All these you may obtain in a motor car and at a price well within your reach if
you but select right.
There's the rub how to decide, between those who claim everything, which car
will fulfill the claims.
For makers are not over-modest. There's no patent on adjectives nor restriction
on the use of words.
"Every maker claims everything. How is one to decide?
After all, it isn't so difficult. Just observe one rule accept no claim that hasn't
been proven.
Yoircan see and test for yourself most of the qualities you desire in a motor .car.
You can compare body lines. You can feel the upholstering. You can determine
the quality of finish.
By riding in it you can verify or disprove all claims as to spring suspension,
balance and riding qualities.
A If you know how to drive any car you can drive it yourself and thereby test the
handling and control steering gear, shift, clutch, brakes, etc. and responsive responsiveness
ness responsiveness of motor.
All these are an open book to the man who will read and can interpret.
So after all, you need only accept the word of the salesman for well, for the
most important facts.
These are, the reliability of the car. and its, gasoline consumption.
And there's where the claims come in for makers being human, and business
being competitive, there is a tendency to claim reliability unlimited and fuel
economy to the vanishing point.
Since this is so, what is the formula for accurate selection of a motor car?
Proofs that is the only certain way.
"Claims are all right, but only proofs count" that is the Maxwell slogan.
Believing that every claim should be susceptible of incontrovertible proof and
believing it to be good business to claim only what we can prove
We have proven in official test, and before the whole world, those two most
elusive but most important qualities reliability and gasoline economy.
In 44 days and nights running, during which the motor never stopped the car
every minute under the supervision of A. A. A. Officials the Maxwell proved
. its wonderful reliability.
That still stands the world's record for reliability the Official Record.
In that same non-stop test, a standard, stock-model Maxwell covered 22,022 miles
' at an average speed of 25 miles per hour.
That also is the Official World's long distance record.
Again: The Maxwell Motor Company offered $50,000 in Liberty Bonds to
Maxwell owners all over the American Continent Canada, the U. S. and Mexico
for an economy contest.
More than 3000 Maxwell owners entered and the average of all those Maxwells
was 29.4 miles per gallon of gasoline. (That was for a U. S. standard gallon. Add
20 per cent mileage and you have 35.3 for a Canadian "Imperial Gallon.")
That also stands a world's record for gasoline economy.
And remember, it wasn't the performance of one especially adjusted car, but ah
average made by more than 3000 Maxwells 1915, 16 and 17 models.
Nor were they driven by factory employees or dealers the rules specified that
only actual owners or members of their families could compete.
So there's one car, in the selection of which you can be sure absolutely sure.
For what you cannot yourself see and examine and test, has been proven beyond
You are invited to see and to ride in jancf to drive yourself, a Maxwell.
And, having done that having seen and tested all that can be confirmed in a
short time the official figures of those long-time, long-distance, reliability and
economy tests are also available to you.
Then, if you are willing to accept mere verbal assertions in the selection of your
car that is your privilege, of course.
But if you want a car that in official test has proven every claim made for it
that car must be a Maxwell.

Cock and Bull Story.
Cock fighting is still the national
sport of the Dominicans, although It is
declining in popularity. Under the na national
tional national gambling laws cock fighting may
be prohibited. It may, however, be li licensed

and it usually is, as it yields them a
good revenue. While bull fighting is
permitted In the Dominican republic,
It has never been popular In this Island.
At long Intervals a toreador comes here

the various towns, but they do not at attract

no professional bull fighters among the'

has devoted itself
exclusively to war
wdrk and various
forms of civic -and
patriotic service.
We have recently
sent the first wo woman's
man's woman's hospital unit
abroad from the
United States.
This unit" is the
"War Baby" of the
Suffrage Associa-
Mrs. J: L.; Laid law.' lion wlth which
we are affiliated.
We have just held a great naval and
military meet at Madison Square Gar Garden,
den, Garden, where a large sum was raised for
this remarkable unit, which has sailed
to do such valuable work in France.
Every person'in it, even to the plumb plumbers
ers plumbers and mechanics, are women, and
they volunteered for dangerous service.
Other branches of our war service
have been an intensive food conserva conservation
tion conservation campaign and the War-Savings
Stamps campaign. In all this active
patriotic work we feel Inspired with
the thought of our own chairman,
Mrs. Norman deR. Whitehouse, abroad
on an important government mission
and many others of the rank and file
of our women who are engaged in de devoted
voted devoted service "over there."
Citizenship 8chools.
Another interesting branch of our
work is the great university extension
of citizenship. Schools are being held
throughout the state under our Educa Educational
tional Educational Committee.
Another line of work Is that of our
Intelligence Committee, which lists of officials
ficials officials of all political parties and all
men In every township and county In
the state who have run or are to run
for office. It Is believed this commit committee
tee committee will become extremely Intelligent
as time goes on, and its intelligence
will react on the civic welfare of the
state most tellingly.
Our Americanization Committee has
Issued some very effective and educa educational
tional educational literature and is organizing In
every center' and community where
there are foreign groups.
Maintaining Morals.
We realize that a great part of a na nation's
tion's nation's war time efficieicy is in keeping
life normal and efficient at home. In
the last analysis that nation which
keeps most nearly steady and normal
In its industrial and domestic life will
maintain that morale which will win
the war for It.
The work of the Rural Problems
Committee perhaps is of particular In Interest
terest Interest in this publication which is be being

try country have stopped to realize how In our
body politic the rural committees are
discriminated against in the matter of

have their amusements, their munici municipal

some of these advantages should be
