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.

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,
vices, services, that is, abor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government

It is always ourselves we rob, not time.
' Maybe yon can waste your own time
by being lae in keeping engagements
and feel that the loss. If any, is. your
own affair. But It Is also the affair of
the man you keep waiting. You waste
his time, too. If your time Is worth worthless,
less, worthless, maybe his is not. He may con conclude
clude conclude that his time is worth more to
him than you are.
In many cases it may sot matter
much. But one never knows until af afterward
terward afterward whether it matters or not.
and through false politeness we are
usually assured that it does not matter
even when It does.
Only the Idle and careless, whose
time is of least value, can afford to
waste It by looseness in keeping en engagements.

It may be hard to acquire the fixed

Speculators who buy oranges

Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea
and Sulphur, properly compounded,
brings back the natural color and lustre
to the hair when faded, streaked or
gray. Years ago the only way to get thia
mixture was to make it at home, which
is musay and troublesome. Nowadays, by
asking at any drug store for "Wyeth'a
Sage and Sulphur Compound, you will
get a large bottle of this famous old
recipe, improved by the addition of other
ingredients, for about 50 cents.
Don't stay gray! Try it! No one
can possibly tell that you darkened your
hair, as it does it go naturally and
evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft
brush with it and draw this through,
your hair, taking one small strand at a
time; by morning the gray hair dis disappears,
appears, disappears, and after another application
or two, your hair becomes beautifully
dark, glossy and attractive.
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound
is a delightful toilet requisite for those
who desire dark hair and a youthful ap appearance.
