The New York Evening Post pays
the following tribute to the volunteer
spirit in America:
"In Gen. March's order for the
adoption of the same insignia for men
of the regular army, the national
guard and the national army, some
profess to see the imminent amalga amalgamation
mation amalgamation of the three elements into a
single conscript army. Yesterday our
Washington correspondent offered the
forecast that the volunteer system of
recruiting for navy and marines will
soon be. abandoned and that all our
armed forces will be fed from the
SlimA TesOTtmit" rf eolof iva ao-nrina
We do not query the wisdom of such
a step, but would only point out the
.fact that the abolition of voluntary voluntary-ism
ism voluntary-ism has come at,a moment when the
volunteer system has been splendidly
vindicated in at least two fields. Our
troops fighting on the Ourcq and
proving themselves a match for, the
best the kaiser can show are regu regulars
lars regulars and, national guard with at most
- some regiments from the national
army. That is to say, the American
army which has helped Foch trans-
form the entire aspect of war over
night is overwhelmingly a volunteer
army. At home the remarkable
achievements in food economy recent
ly described by Mr. Hoover are pre predominantly
dominantly predominantly a triumph of voluntary
ism. We may admit that in the ei
gantic test to which nations are put
by modern war, compulsion, whether
in the recruiting of armies or the
regulation of national economy, is in
the long run essential. Nevertheless
it is well to be reminded that the
older and more American trait has
not lost its virtue among our people;
that Americans still can give readily,
wholly, and effectively."
The Star has in the past week se secured
cured secured the opinions of the different
members of the council in regard to
that ever interesting subject, the city
plant, and the manufacture and dis distribution
tribution distribution of electric current.
Mr. Mclver, the veteran member
from the third ward and alderman of
the longest experience, is uncompro uncompromisingly
misingly uncompromisingly in favor of the city con continuing
tinuing continuing to make its own current. He
is aware there were mistakes made
in building the plant, and some
things in it are not in the best of
order, but there is nothing wrong, he
says, that cannot be made right if the
right men take hold and do conscien conscien-tious
tious conscien-tious work.
Mr. Winer is of the same mind as
Mr. Mclver. He says he is assuredly
against the city buying current from
an outside source. There J are faults
in the plant, but all the same it is a
most valuable piece of property. The
Skinner engine and the boilers are
among the best made, and are worth
more than when they were put in. It
was a mistake to instal the oil en engine;
gine; engine; notwithstanding, it is a valu valuable
able valuable machine entirely too valuable
to throw away. When it has the fuel
and runs right it saves the city con-j
, Mr. A. T. Thomas, alderman at
large, is in favor of buying current
from the Florida Power Company,
and keeping the city plart in order I
to take up the work at any time the
power company's current should be
interrupted. On account of the loca location
tion location of the power company's plant,
with the never-failing stream of
water from Blue Springs, behind its
dam, it is not liable to f ail j like
hydro-electric plants in mountain or
hilly countries, where drouths some sometimes
times sometimes reduce the head of water until
current is cut off. Mr. Thomas wants
Ocala to take this current, not only
because he thinks it can be furnished
cheaper than the city can buy" it, but
because he does- not think, the city
plant can ever furnish power for large
manufacturing plants. He says if
Ocala has plenty of cheap V current
when the war ends, if not before, it
will be a great encouragement for
manufacturing enterprises to start
here, and without it they won't. He
however wants the city to retain con control
trol control of its business and keep its plant
in its own hands. In regard to the
city manager's estimate that it is
only costing the' city 1.76 cents to
manufacture current, he 'thinks the
figure is too low, by a cent at least.
Mr, Thomas makes one .suggestion
that we think is very reasonable, and
that is that half a dozen competent
business men be appointed a commit committee
tee committee to go thru the records and find
out exactly, what it costs to run $he
plant for a stated number of months,
and by striking an average make an
estimate of; the expense of running
the; plant, Such an estimate would
be of service to the city and settle a
much disputed question for awhile.
Mr. Osborne very nearly concurs
with Mr. Thomas. He thinks, how however,
ever, however, the Florida Power Company
could afford to supply the city -with
current at a cent and a half, and if it
made such a proposition it would be
bad business not to accept it. Mr.
Osborne says the fuel problem is bad
and getting worse. ? There is no fuel
we can depend on but wood, and
wood is becoming scarcer and more
costly. About the only, certain source
of supply is the Martel mill. This
state of affairs may be expected to
last not only thru the war but for
some time after; in fact, he does not
expect the country to ever return to
the conditions of a few years ago.
The Star had no chance to consult
Mr. Geo. A. Nash, member from the
fourth ; ward, but from his remarks
on various occasions we judge he is
much of the same way of thinking as
Messrs. Mclver and Winer.
As Mr. Nash is soon to be replaced
with another alderman, and as it
seems that this question will be with
us some time yet, the Star suggests
that any candidate who announces in
the fourth, ward be required to make
plain his intentions on the subject.
Thete are. some very good m;en in the
fourth ward, and some who are not so
good, and it won't pay the town to
select sone of the latter class.
The Orlando Reporter-Star says:

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 bard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's

Work for Young Women
There probably never was a time
when thoughtful young women were
as anxious as at the present to make
their lives count for something. Now
that the surgeon general of the U. S.
army is calling for a host of student
reserve nurses in the United States
to take the place of the graduate
nurses going abroad, Ocala girls
should become alive to the opportu opportunity
nity opportunity offered to them here at home of
taking up that most helpful' of all
prof essions nursing.
Across the sea, from France, with
every closing day of the heroic strug struggle
gle struggle of our fighting men, there comes
a more imperative call to the women
of America to assume their full
share of responsibility in winning
this world war for- the right of men,
women and nations to live their own
lives and determine their own future.
Women are peculiarly constituted for
spending themselves on great events.
They are so constituted that they can
rise at occasions, such as births,
deaths and nursing f which looms
large in the life of .'. every normal
woman. The question before women
today is far-reaching and very real.
All of us are prone to say that we
"love our country," but now is the I
time when "actions speak louder than
words." 'Y'' : r.--;-'fYY Y:' 'i
, All over our broad land today we
have a mutual interest, something to
join the hearts and hands of all true
Americans. It has been aptly said by
a broad thinking woman : "We can
not longer live our own lives-the
man or woman who tries to do it has
become the most despised citizen of
the place. Their names are spoken ;
in hushed voices, because there are
reasons why women must work and
weep and pray today. They, cannot
still be so encased with the veneer of
modern society as to be wishing to
remain indifferent to emotion when
the whole world is in convulsions of1
a life and death A struggle." Y
The service which is being asked
of woman today calls for .the best
that American womanhfeod can offer
in couragej devotion and resourceful resourcefulness.

Miss Musie Bullock then led in the

Wrighton also gave a short talk on
Canada and the war as she was more
familiar with this side of the great
struggle, being herself a Canadian.
She said that 70 per V cent of the
wounded recover and that because of
the shortage of nurses many of, the
physicians in the hospitals have to
stop more important things to do
what the nurses could do if they only
had enough nurses. Y
Mrs. William Hocker was the next
speaker and she also added a warm

FILM SPREAD OVER WATER
Thin Sheet on Surface Has Proper!!
That Are Very Like Those of
It seems not to be generally under understood
stood understood that the surface of all water is
covered by a film of the water itself,
which In Its action is not unlike that
of a thin sheet of India robber, says
Edward Bigelow, the scoot naturalist.
In Boys' Life. To comprehend this
one must Imagine the robber to be so
thin as to be transparent. The surface
of the water itself is elastic and under
tension, so that a needle, though heav heavier
ier heavier than the water, may be floated on
Several interesting experiments may
be made with the elasticity of this
.film. One of the best is to place two
slender splinters of wood side by side
on the water. Now drop a little alco alcohol
hol alcohol between the splinters. This alco alcohol
hol alcohol will immediately break the surf surface
ace surface film between the splinters, and
the pulling force of the remaining film,
since there is nothing between them
.to hold them, will cause the splinters
Instantly to fly apart
Another interesting experiment is to
whittle a thin, slender splinter, pointed
at one end somewhat like a boat. Place
a tiny bit of gum camphor on the rear
of this splinter and the gum win de destroy'
stroy' destroy' the surface so that there
will be.no pull in the rear. As there
is a pull in the front not balanced by
one in the rear, the tiny boat will run
forward as rapidly as the camphor
can dissolve the film in the rear.
Some interesting little "magic"
tricks might be developed from these
experiments which would surprise

ODIUM ATTACHED TO CARD
Numerous Explanations as to Why the
Nine of Diamonds Is Called the
' Curse of Scotland.
. While the nine spot of spades la
looked upon as a fatal and TindictiTe
card in the trying of f ortunea, It is the
nine of diamonds that bears the odium
of being called the curse of Scotland.
All writers agree on the card, but as
to, the cause of the stigma attached
to It there is a diversity of opinion
and it is difficult to decide which of
the many theories is correct. One the theory
ory theory is that after the Culloden strug struggle
gle struggle the duke of Cumberland picked
up a nine of diamonds from the floor
and wrote on it an order for the death
of the insurgents. To clinch this ar argument,
gument, argument, it is declared that the identi identical
cal identical card is preserved at Slalns castle,
Aberdeenshire. Another explanation
was that, a Scotch member of parlia parliament,
ment, parliament, a part of whose family arms was
the nine of diamonds, once voted for a
malt tax for his country. Still another
view is that diamonds represent roy royalty
alty royalty and every ninth king of Scotland
having been a tyrant and a curse fur furnishes
nishes furnishes the key to the mystery. One
writer explains it by stating that the
last queen of Scotland taxed her sub subjects
jects subjects heavily to pay for nine jewels
for her own adornment The "last
queen of Scotland" in her own right
was poor, pretty Marie Stuart against
whose memory has been tossed the
mud of countless accusations by her
bitter critics, and she might as well
.bear the nine o diamonds slander
along with the others.
