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.

four miles off, with gun crews operat operating

It's the Star's opinion that the cot

ton situation will straighten itself
out in a few, days. The truth is that
real inconvenience has so far only oc occurred
curred occurred in isolated cases. One of our
leading ginners informs us that he
has made arrangements to take care
of all his regular patrons, and we
think the others, or most of them,
will do the same thing. It is no use to
blame the local ginners, as they are
not responsible for a national situa
tion, and a disaster to their clientele
will be disastrous to them. It's the
Star's opinion that the trouble is due
to "profiteers," and they will probably
be shown up and rounded up before
another season. Our people have not
made proper provision for taking
care of cotton. They are accustomed
to taking their cotton directly from
the fields to the gins and few have
made any provision for storage. A
man who raises cotton should have a
place to store it, the same as he has
a crib for his corn. Speculators, are
taking advantage of this negligence
with disastrous effect to the : cotton
grower. The business men of Ocala
have been very silly in not building a
big cotton warehouse. If we had such
an institution, cotton could be ginned
and baled and then stored to wait the
best condition of the market. So far,
very few farmers have brought in
cotton, and there is probably not
enough to start the gins on. It is our
opinion that, combine or no combine,
the gins will start as soon as there is
enough cotton picked to warrant their
doing so. In the meantime, it will pay
every man to hold his cotton as long
as he can. Even with 80,000 bales
from Egypt, there will not be enough
to supply the demand.
The county commissioners have
promised to supply the Win the War
League with a big, fine American flag,
to be hoisted on the public square as
soon as the league selects a proper
place to put it. It is rather a difficult
proposition to find a good place for
the flag. The courthouse dome would
be the most appropriate place, but an
apparatus to raise and lower the flag
would cost several hundred dollars,
and beside that the dome isn't strong
enough to support it. We heard a
prominent member of the league favor
erecting a much higher and stronger
pole on the public square and flying
the flag from it, requesting the mem members
bers members of the fire department to care
for it, as they are now caring for the
smaller flag for the city. Seems to
the Star this would be the best solu solution

The Allies seem to be harrying the

are so very small, as hundreds of
thousands of men are used in each,
but they are not to be compared in

sives offensives the Teutons have attempted this
year. They have the greater advant advantage,
age, advantage, however, of standing a fair
chance of hitting the Hun line in a
weak place and playing smash with it
until it can be reinforced. If these
offensives keep up," the Germans will
soon have lost all the ground they
gained in France this spring. As for
the men the Huns have lost, there is
no replacing them. Today's dispatches
say they total jsix million.

Platinum and Jewelry
The' question is being asked why
we should give up platinum in jewel

have it to fire their guns. Every

this white metal for some part of its
efficiency. At the beginning of the
present year there was enough plati platinum

that time. England formerly depend depended

army and navy need platinum for

planes platinum is essential. In our
military hospitals the lives of men
depend on the use of instruments that
are made of platinum. And the sup supply
ply supply is limited. While the government
works to secure platinum for the war,
a volunteer organization has started
a campaign to eliminate the use of it
in jewelry. This is the Woman's Na

Platinum. Only 75 years ago this
metal was discovered. Today chem chemists,

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,

Morning Exercises.
Calisthenics taken in the early morn morning

health. Standing, warmly but loosely
clad, at an open window and inhaling
deep breaths of fresh air will stimulate

One might consist ox doubling the fists,
placing them at the shoulders, and
then thrusting them out at arms length
swiftly. After that It would be well
to bend, trying to touch the floor with
the finger tips without bending the
knees. These calisthenics might be
concluded with a final one of kneeling
and bending forward, the floor from

need not take more than five minutes,
and will do more to make circulation
lively and muscles in good condition
