Also, Many Austrian Prisoners and
the Monta di VaL and Held It
Against Counter Attacks
(Associated Press) :
Attacking the Austrian-Hungarian
lines on the Asiago plateau, the Ital Italians
ians Italians have wrested Monta di vai Bella
from the enemy, captured 409 prison
ers and held tLeir new positions
against repeated counter-attacks.
This sudden turn from the defensive
to the offensive came as a surprise to
the Jaymen of the allied World, for it
had been believed that General Diaz,
the Italian commander, would be
content to hold his lines' in the moun
tains against a great new offensive
intended by the Austrians and Ger Germans
mans Germans to take away the sting of the
defeat of the Austrians along the?
Piave two weeks ago.
Nor was the Italian attack limited
to the positions on Monte di val Bella.
Further east, on the left bank of. the
Brenta river, they captured the
height of Sasso Rosso, just north of
the village of Valstagna.
These two actions, while local in
character, may explain the failure of
the Italians to pursue the Austrians
across the Piave when, on June 23,
the enemy fled from the west bank
with a haste that indicated some
thing, of demroalization.

worth. The linotype machine dropped
a couple of periods in the wrong
places and made the amounts $22.30
and 10.40,-just one per cent of what
they really were. A similar mistake
occurred a couple of days before
about the K. of P. purchase of stamps.
We think we will revert to the good
old rule of spelling out amounts after
this. It takes a little more time and
space, but not so much as to explain
Elsewhere .we print a letter from
our friend Light, in which he defends
the railroad commission. We have
space for the defense of anybody or
anything we criticise, but we are not
much impressed by Mr. Dunn s
figure's, or rather we are impressed
the other way. Sixteen million dol
lars seems to us more approximate
and accurate, and even if Mr. Dunn is
correct in this, there are two other
points to consider. One is that the
government has to have the money
if it can't obtain it one way, it will
have to take it in another, and the
people will have to pay, probably m
a more direct manner than freight
rates. Another is that- Florida has
two senators and four representatives
in Congress it is their duty to look
after the interests of the people of
the state, and they have a great deal
more influence than the state railroad
commission. Mr. Dunn is a very clever
man and one of the Star's friends,
and it's our friendly advice to him to
divorce himself from his unnecessary
job. We undertsand he has a mighty
fine farm down here in South Florida
and he will be more use helping to
increase its productiveness than cam camouflaging
ouflaging camouflaging usefulness in Tallahassee.
Handling"-so many hogs seems to
have permeated the big meat packing
firms of America f with hoggishness.
They are models of efficiency and they
should be models of honesty, but they
are the reverse. Their embalmed beef
caused the worst scandal of the
Spanish-American war. A few years
later, Upton Sinclair's "Jungle" caus caused
ed caused an investigation that brought to
light the fact that the stock yards of
Chicago reeked with moral and ma
terial filth, oppression and dishonesty
of the worst type. A few days ago
the navy department refused an im immense
mense immense amount of meat because it was
spoiled, and now the federal .trade
commission, in reporting profiteering
on a tremendous scale, puts the big
packers among the chief sinners. The
heads of the firms of Armour, Swift,
Cudahy, Morris and Wilson should
get together and have an industrial
and commercial house cleaning. If
they do not their family names will
go down to posterity, stinking worse
than some of the meat they try to
unload on our army and navy.
We see that the newly nominated
senator from Leon county, Mr. D. M.
Lowry, who defeated Mr. A. S. Wells
in the June primary, has accepted a
responsible and, we hope, remuner
ative, position in Jacksonville. Mr.
Lowry, the papers state, will retain
his residence in Tallahassee, and,
though passing probably five-sevenths
of his time in Duval county, win rep-
! resent Leon in the state senate. We
dont' think this will be a fair deal for
Leon. We don't believe that any man
can do justice to his home community
in a representative body when he
spends most of his time and has his
business interests in another part of
the country. If Mr. Lowry is to prac
tically live and conduct his business
affairs 150 miles from Leon, he should
decline the nomination that has-been
given him and let a man who stays in
the county take it. r
The question of how far the gov
ernor of the state controls the home
guards will probably have a speedy
trying out. The governor recently
issued an order that home guards
should not drill on Sundays. The Dade
county home guards have set his
order at naught. The story is told in
a dispatch elsewhere. We think
Major Smith might have been a little
more diplomatic in his language, but
it seems to us that the Dade county
men are patriotic and sensible in giv
ing up their Sunday leisure in order
to drill and the governor should not
interfere with them. The ten com commandments
mandments commandments are not the law of this
state; if they were people could not
ride in their autos, go bathing in the
surf or do any of the other many
things for their gratification that the
governor couldn't prohibit, and
wouldn't be heeded if he did.
It is believed that in consequence
of the inevitable shortage of fuel in
the north the coming winter, that a
great many visitors more than usual
will spend the cold months in Florida,
and it would be well for our people
to prepare for the same. In connec
tion with this, a friend suggests to
the Star that our people set aside a
week to be called postcard week, in
which they shall send as many as they
can of postcards illustrative of Ocala
and Marion county to friends and ac acquaintances
quaintances acquaintances in the north. A very
good suggestion, and one we should
like to see carried out. There are a
great many good postcard views of
our city and county at the various
stands in Ocala, and if some thou thousands

the north they would be the best sort

How Women May Add to the Fighting
Strength of Our Country
, In times of strain the courage and
the tempers of women are tried, but
the collective fortitude and the col collective
lective collective patience of the country are its
greatest war asset, and to the sum of
them woman's contribution is of enor enormous
mous enormous consequence. ? That women
should understand and appreciate our
national duty and uphold and inspire
their men to discharge it, is of course
of vital concern. Hardly a man has
entered this war but at cost to some
woman; to her peace of mind, if she
is his mother, sweetheart or his wife;
to her comfort, physical and mental,
if she depends on him for support, f
She can make duty easier for him
or harder, according to the spirit with'
which she meets the situation. For
women to be patient, to be brave, to
bear "necessary changes and hard hardships

The more our men are called to
specific war duties, the more .the

old and of everybody, will fall on the
hearts and" heads and hands of wom women.

That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize

buying of anything not essential to health and efSciency. Every
