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.

A web of love ; our million hearts are sent

Beneath it, in the hurry and the noise

A web of prayer; our eyes with tears are dim,

Do Women Vote

At the Congressional elections in New York City in
March, the first election of the new women voters, 90.8
per cent, of the registered women voted and only 33.7 per
cent of the registered men. The women helped to elect
four Democratic Congressmen. "As a rule women went
about their politics in a workmanlike, almost professional
manner," said the surprised Times. "It was an event out
of the ordinary if a woman made a mistake in folding her
ballot." On the same day women of Vermont voted for
the first time in municipal elections. In Burlington and
Colchester 90 per cent, of the women registrants voted.
Rutland followed with 80 per cent., St. Albans with 75
per cent.

others, including major generals, col colonels,

went to Macon when he heard Capt.

thinking it to Be a continuation of
the political persecution started some
months ago against Capt. Catts, he

piece of sense and wit from the Ocala
Star, and we are therefore pained to
see the evident thoughtlessness that
permitted this paragraph to get into
print: 1

"Secretary of the Navy Daniels is
going v around making speeches at
college commencements. That's some something
thing something he can do better than he can do
anything else."
The Star has forgot than Secretary
of the Navy Daniels has "put over"
approximately a million of our sons
and brothers and husbands; and that
the loss of life from German attack
of all kinds has been far less than
100.': ';.
It has forgot that there has been
kept going a steady stream of ships
bearing the necessary food and mu munitions
nitions munitions of war to sustain this million
men and to make them effective
against the ; enemy.
It has. forgot that the navy has
been the only branch of the 'govern

ment during this war that has abso absolutely
lutely absolutely escaped the carping criticism
of pro-German and pessimist, because
it has been plain to every man and
woman who stops to think, that for
efficiency, and for activity the Ameri American
can American navy is 100 per cent there!
Secretary of the Navy Daniels
makes a fine commencement speech ;
and he also makes a fine commander
of the greatest "navy in the world, and
he is making of that, navy one of the
most efficient protectors of this coun country
try country that even the optimism df democ democracy
racy democracy can picture! ;
Here's a health, then to the man
who drinks grape juice, but' whose
men shoot grapeshot into the enemy,
t Here's to the man whose transport
protection .is such that the slinking
German submarine, after lying
around for weeks hoping for a place
to strike when unexpected or because
a ship is left unguarded, finds nothing
for him to do but vent his 'wrath on
a few harmless, insignificent commer commercial

dodge for his life fom the guns of
Secretary Daniels' navy. Tampa Tri Tribune,

After reading the foregoing, we
feel like the Jew, who being hungry
and .unable to obtain anything else
ate a ham sandwich. Shortly after,
there was a violent thunderstorm, and
the Jew said, in indignant dismay:
"What a helluva lot of., fuss about
such a little piece of ham." m

If our friend fMc. is competent to
write editorials for such a big paper
as the Tribune (and we think he is)
he knows the work of the navy would
be done, and would be done as well, if
Mr. Daniels had never been born. His
reference to the navy as "Secretary
Daniels' navy" is offensive to every
American. -'V-'--: ;.".V

It was thoughtless we didn't think
much of it as we wrote it and wouldn't
have thought of it again if our friend
Mc. hadn't rushed in where an angel
would have wiggled his wings and
flown off to attend to something worth
while. It's a safe bet that if Mr.
Daniels had seen said paragraph he
wouldn't have been thoughtful enough
to think of it again, for Daniels is an

able man. He ranks higher as an

man whe combines the two occupa occupations

wrong place.
It is one of the faults of our politi political
cal political system that a civilian is appointed
secretary of the navy. The fault is
partly atoned for by the fact that the
civilian generally contents himself
with the honor and lets the naval
men run the navy, Mr. Daniels un unfortunately
fortunately unfortunately was not that sort. He
probably knew less about naval af affairs
fairs affairs than any other man that ever
filled his place. Tho he knew less

about a battleship than an admiral

knows about a linotype, he set to
work to shape the navy according to
his notions. The story of his muddling
is too well known to repeat. A couple
of years ago, the American navy was

I in a mess. The opinion of many of the
leading publications and most able
. writers in the country of Secretary
j Daniels was such that we don't feel
J called on to apologize for our brief

' About the time of Mr. Wilson's sec-j

ond election, there came a change. Mr.
Daniels ceased to be a drag and be became
came became a figurehead, and the navy be began
gan began to prepare for the inevitable
struggle, and it certainly prepared
well. V
We don't know why the change. Mr.
Daniels has plenty of sense and
plenty of patriotism. Perhaps he got
wise to himself. Perhaps the School School-mastertook
mastertook School-mastertook him into the White House
woodshed and whaled the bumptious bumptiousness

Franklin D. Roosevelt is assistant
secretary of the navy and has held
the office for a number of years.
There is a chief of naval operations,
who is an experienced naval officer,
and with him are other experienced
naval officers, and they attend to more
things every day than the secretary
of the navy thinks of in a year. They
never have time to make speeches at
college commencements. To them and
the officers and seamen of the Amer American
ican American navy is due the great efficiency,
and the great naval machine would
not slip a cog cr miss a stroke if Mr.
Daniels was translated tomorrow.

It seems longer, but It was less than
four years aga that the nations had
not yet started In to wipe each other
off the map and that the only tiniej
when one heard of the Bed Cross were
times of flood or disaster and at
Christmas time, when the peaceful lit little
tle little Bed Cross tuberculosis seals made
their annual appearance.

Perhaps, In fact, it was the long, ar
dent tight In America against the White

Plague which, in spite of the war's
enormous new demands, is responsible
for the especial interest being takes by

the American Bed Cross In France's
frightful struggle against consumption.
This scourge seems to mark the
trench fighter for its own. It kills
luore men than do bullets and poison
gas combined. Until the American

Bed Cross was permitted by the
French government to start its drive
against tuberculosis lt4 looked as If,
even with a victory over the Hun,
France might eventually be conquered

by this deadlier foe.

Already things are looking brighter.
The Bed Cross has taken over old hos hospitals
pitals hospitals and built new ones. More than

SOO tuberculosis dispensaries are to be
onened throughout the country, and

Bed Cross doctors and nurses scores

of them are devoting themselves ex

exactly the same kind of work which

is financed In America by the little
Christmas seals. It is or e of the ways
in which by our contributions to the
Bed Cross America can repay her debt

to France,

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 ia. 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 net 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
ey money to your Government.

Old Rates of Interest.
Five per cent interest on a loan
would have been scoffed at by the men
who had money to lend In medieval
times. In the thirteenth and fourteenth
centuries the usual rate seems to have
teen 20 per cent, and in the preceding
centuries it was probably higher, says
the London Chronicle. The rate of In Interest
terest Interest decreased with the increase of
specie, with an occasieoal limitation
by the state. Elizabeth reduced the
iate by law to. 10 per cent, James I to
It and Charles II to 6. In ancient
Rome, according to NIebuhr, the rate
Was 8 1-3 for a ten-month year the
quivalent of 10 per cent per annum.

The word "artichoke" is derived from

Its thickened bracts and the delicate
"bottom." This plant, which is of the
thistle family, is a native of the old
world. The Jerusalem artichoke, Hell Hell-anthus
anthus Hell-anthus tuberosus. Is a tuber which
grows on the roots of a sunflower. It
was well-known and much used by the
natives of America before the coming
of Columbus. It was introduced Into
France early in the seventeenth cen century

gardens in Rome, whence it was dis distributed

name of Glrasole Articloeco, or sun sunflower

"appears to have been given to the

more or less similar flavor, while Jeru Jerusalem
