Seems to the Star that it is time
for the prohibitionists of Florida to
turn in and do some work in favor of
the prohibition amendment to be
voted on in November if they expect
to see it adopted. They seem to take
it for granted that a majority of the
people will vote for it and are doing
little or no work. They may find
themselves badly mistaken. It being
an off year and all the nominees safe,
a great many people are going to
stay saway from the polls, and the
people who do stay away will mostly
be those who would vote dry. The
liquor people are not making any
noise, but they are working and will
poll very nearly their full vote. The
prohibitionists had better go to work
and work hard, else they may wake
up the morning after election to find
that the .amendment has been lost.

may not be much the board can do
but there is much it should try to do.
One thing is, that it should make an
attempt to induce a number of vis vis-.
. vis-. itors to come to Ocala during the
winter. Ocala is better prepared to
entertain people of the home-seeking
class than the average town. For
one thing, a good many of our people
have gone away for the duration of
the war, leaving a number of houses
and apartments that they would
doubtless be willing to rent on com
paratively low terms. These with our
hotels could easily accommodate at
least a thousand people, and the
board should try to induce them to
come here. Ocala is a good place for
the quiet, home-liking northerner
vWho desires to find a refuge from the
severe cold. It will be well supplied
with fresh meat, vegetables and fruit
at reasonable prices, and there is
plenty of attraction in the town and
counrty around it for visitors. We
ourselves, living here, do not realize
how pretty our town, how lovely our
country, is. There are thousands of
families all over the north who would
feel like they were in paradise if they
left their snow and ice for our balmy'
weatner, our evergreen woods and
ever-blooming flowers. Let the board
take council and see what it can do
to make the advantages and attrac attractions
tions attractions of Ocala and Marion county
known to people who may have to
seek homes in the south this winter.

ARTHUR N. DAVIS. D. D. S.
(Copyright, 191?, by the McClure Newspa Newspaper

The Kaiser's Dual Personality.
If I had come away from Germany In
January, 1914, Instead of In January,
1918, and had written the impression
I had gained of the kaiser in the ten
years I had known him, what a false
picture I would have painted of tne
man as he really is I
It would have been a picture of a
man who in general appearance and
bearing was every inch an emperor and
yet who could exhibit all the courtesy,
affability and gentleness of the most
democratic gentleman, a man soft of
eye and kindly in expression, a man. of
wide reading and attainments perhaps
the most versatile man In the world, a
man who possessed a most alert mind,
a remarkable memory and the keenest
observation; a man who was not gen generous
erous generous in nature and yet was at times
considerate of others ; a man of charm charming
ing charming personality and amiability. It
would have shown a man of unpar unparalleled
alleled unparalleled egotism, a man who was im impatient
patient impatient of correction and who would
brook no opposition. There might have
been in the picture a suggestion of the
dire lengths to which the man would
go to have his way, but it would have
been only a suggestion.
As far as it went, the picture would
have been' accurate, but It would have
been sadly Incomplete with all the

in invariably waving his hand at me
as he passed my window when walking
along the Tiergartea.

of the public
During that period of my career in
Berlin, he showed the utmost interest
in my progress and frequently inquired
how my practice was developing.
The first bill I rendered him, as I
have mentioned, he doubled. On a
number of subsequent occasions, he
paid me more than my bill called for.
These overpayments never amounted
to very much, but they impressed me
because they were so out of keeping
with the stinginess the kaiser dis displayed
played displayed in other directions.
From time to time the kaiser sent
or brought me autographed pictures of
himself or others. At the time of the
one hundredth anniversary of Fred Frederick
erick Frederick the Great, he ave me a picture
of that monarch. On another occasion,
he presented me with a group picture
of himself surrounded by his family
and doirs. I remember his bringing to
me a large nnfranied picture in cele celebration

about twenty-four by eighteen Inches
in size. It showed the kaiserin and

signed by his own hand, was in his
own estimation one of the most price priceless
less priceless gifts he could bestow. I, remem remember

American charity bazaar in Berlin to
be auctioned off. He thought that the
fact that the card came from his im imperial

could not be measured In dollars and

of money might have been duplicated
or even excelled by a gift of similar

No doubt the royal banquets were
prepared much upon the same prin principle,

among the German aristocracy that one
had better feel well before going to a
banquet at the palace.
I happened to mention to the kaiser

his people. He was not at all taken

of the art that goes into making
homes look more artistic and com comfortable,
fortable, comfortable, and business places and;
lubs better to look upon, is going to
add a more home-like touch to the
huts of the army and navy Y. M. C.j
A. in the southeastern camps. The
soldiers have found the "Y" huts the
most "comfy" and appealing places
in the cantonments, but Miss Peggy
Bobbitt, an interior decorator and
artist,- is going to infuse a little more
brightness and home touch into the
huts if that is possible. Miss Bob Bobbitt
bitt Bobbitt has enlisted in the "Y" service,
not to transform the "Y" huts into
dreams of fantastic art, but into
places where the boys will feel they
are the nearest to the home they
could get without being actually
there. The Atlanta woman, who is
official decorator for the Capital City
Club, and who has done many impor important
tant important and artistic jobs in Atlanta
homes and business places, will work
with the constructing director for 'the
army and navy Y. M. C. A. of the
southeast. Miss Bobbitt is a profes professional
sional professional interior decorator and she has
dreamed some time of having a
chance to make the "Y" huts a bit
more home-like and yet retaining the
practical. She figured they would
have to be just as practical and service-giving
as they are now, but a mite
more pleasing to a fellow longing for
home. Miss Bobbitt not only works
out decorative schemes, but designs
furniture. She will start at Camp
Gordon in the "Y" huts there, and
later will tackle Fort McPherson's
"Y" buildings and those at Camp
Jessup. She believes that the home
touches she has worked out will be
adopted for other "Y" huts in the
southeast. Miss Bobbitt took a post postgraduate
graduate postgraduate course in Maryland Art
School, Baltimore, and is widely
known throughout the country as a
leader in home decorating. She 'has
an extensive acquaintance in Atlanta.

In Germany were also honored by the
kaiser in another way. Although he
was averse to visiting the homes of
private individuals who lacked social

their favor and visited their mansions

but actually to tickle their vanity.
Shortly after Leishman became am ambassador

"Your new ambassador's daughter Is

declared. "Half a dozen of my young

his sense of security unloosened his
tongue and made him more talkative,
perhaps, than was always discreet.
The kaiser was very fond of listen listening

of a conference between representa representatives

selection of a king 'for Albania after
the Balkan war. Some of those present
thought the Incumbent ought to be a

Catholic was essential, 1 still others
maintained that a Mohammedan would

The powers did not select a Jew, but
the prince of WIed, the kaiser's nomi
nee, was put on the throne, and within
a month or two afterwards had to flee
for his' life.
In referring to Roosevelfs patriotic
offer to lead an army in France, the
kaiser declared that he admired him
for his courage and zeal.
"I hear," he said, that he Is now on
his way to Italy. It is too bad we did
not postpone our off ehsive there. Per

Shortly after the U-boat Deutsch Deutsch-land

of people waiting outside to greet him,
ostentatiously put a cigarette in his
mouth and light It, that everyone might
notice how steady his hand was and
how little he was worried by the turn
things were taking.
At the same time, on one or two oo
casions after the war starred, I noticed
that he acted differently when in the
dental chair than had been his custom
when everything was serene.
The kaiser once boasted to me that
not a building was erected in Germany,
not a bridge built, not a street opened,
not a park laid out, but what the proj project
ect project was first submitted to him. He
kept posted on everything that was
going on, not only in Germany, but in,
the world at large, and, as far as he
was able, he endeavored to have his
finger In every development of world worldwide

that he was less interested in what his
countrymen were doing in connection
with the war than he was in their
achievements In time of peace.
If he did not actually order the sink sinking

convinced that he was thoroughly
aware of the plan to blow it up and
sanctioned it. That he could have
averted it if he had been prompted to
to do so Is clearly indicated by another
Incident which left a very deep Im Impression

I was Informed by one of the Ger German
man German aviators that plans had been
made to drop gas. bombs on London
which contained a deadly gas which
would penetrate the cellars of houses
in which civilians were in the habit
of hiding during air raids.
Shortly before this hideous idea was
to be put into effect the papers an announced

Baden-Baden, but that, fortunately,
they had fallen in a clump of woods
In the center of the town and had fail failed
ed failed to explode, which had given the
Germans an opportunity to take them
apart and ascertain their nature.
The purpose of this announcement,
of course, was to forestall the storm of
condemnation which the Germans
knew would follow their use of the
bombs on London a ruse which they
had invariably employed whenever
they contemplated some fresh violation
of the rules of Iilternational law and
the dictates of humanity.
It happened that one of my patients
who resided in Baden-Baden called to
see me the day after the bombs had
been dropped on her town, and she
told me all about it.
"The airplanes which dropped the
tfcimbs had been flying over the city all
the morning," she leclared. "We
thought they were our own machines
out for practice and paid no particular
attention to them. Then they 'dropped
the bombs and they landed in the

What a foolish thing for allied air airplanes

and then to drop thosedo:idly bombs
on a clump of woods where they could
not possibly hurt anyone, and how

was this: these gas bombs were never

' "Just as everything was in readiness

there was nothing for us to do but
comply, but if we had had the kaiser
there, I believe we would have strung
him up by the neck We still have
those bombs, however, and you may
be sure they will yet be used !"
For some unknown reason the kaiser
stopped the use of those lethal gas
bombs for the riiae being. Why didn't
he move to save the women and chil children

When I went back to Berlin in the
