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.

The Branch House Man

This is one of the Swift & Company
Branch House Men.
They are all pretty much alike in the
way they feel toward their work and that
is what this ad is about.
They know that most people couldn't
get such good meat promptly and in good
condition if it weren't for the branch houses
of which they are in charge.
They know that the branch house is
one of the most important links in the chain
of preparing and distributing meat for a
They know that Swift & Company must
have its branch houses run at the highest
notch of usefulness; that even a Swift &

Company branch house won't run itself, and
, that it is up to the branch house man to
run it properly.
Any branch house man who doesn't
see his work in this light is transferred to
some other place with Swift & Company to
which he is better adapted.
They are picked men, these branch
house men. Every time you sit down to a
steak or chop, or cut of roast, you can give a
grateful thought to the whole crew of them.
And remember, in a general way, that
everything that makes life smoother and
more convenient for you, is the result of the
thoughtfulness and effort of a lot of people

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

buying of anything net essential to health and efficiency. Every

The Kaiser as
I I Knew Him
1 For Fourteen 1

(Copyright, 1918, by the McClure Newspa Newspaper
per Newspaper Syndicate.)
The Kaiser Defends German War
The kaiser was always very careful
about everything which might affect
his health, and even after the war
started, when his attention was natu naturally
rally naturally occupied by many pressing prob problems,
lems, problems, he did not neglect his teeth, but
came to me as regularly as he had al always
ways always done.
Of this I was very glad, because It
gave me an opportunity to draw the
kaiser out on many of the interesting
questions wrhich the war suggested
and which I found him always ready
to discuss. Perhaps the fact that I
was an American led the kaiser to
greater lengths In his justification of
German war methods and measures
than he might otherwise have thought
The first time I saw the kaiser after
the war started was about August 10,
1914. Between eleven and twelve
o'clock the night before, I had been
notified by telephone that the kaiser
would like me to attend him at the
Berlin palace the following morning
at nine o'clock. He was about to make
his first visit to the front and wanted
his teeth examined before he went.
The work I had to do for him was
nothing of a serious character and did
not occupy more than twenty minutes.
One of his valets stood by to give me
any assistance' I might need, but left
the room when I was through.
"Have you been reading in Ihe pa papers,
pers, papers, Davis," the kaiser asked when we
were alone, "how our soldiers have
been treated by the Belgians?"
I said I had not had a chance to
read the papers that morning."
"Well, you must certainly read them.
They've been gouging out the eyes of
our wounded and mutilating my men
horribly! They call It modern, civi civilized
lized civilized warfare. That's savagery I
hope your president is taking notice
of these atrocities."
Of course I was in no position to
contradict the kaiser's assertions, as
I was not in possession of any of the
facts, but I learned afterward that
four American newspaper correspond correspondents
ents correspondents had scoured Germany from one
end of the country to the other in an
effort to run down these reports. They
left no rumor uninvestigated, no mat matter
ter matter how far they had to travel to ver verify
ify verify it. When they had finally exhaust exhausted
ed exhausted every clue and followed every lead
they had not found a single case to
justify the charge the kaiser had made
against the Belgians and which, of
course, the inspired German press con continued
tinued continued to report from day to day.
The object of these lies was to jus justify
tify justify the outrages which the Germans
were committing in their plan to ter terrorize
rorize terrorize the inhabitants of the countries
they were overrunning. According to
reports the activities of franc-tlreurs
In the occupied territories were met
by the Germans with the most bar barbaric
baric barbaric punishments, crucifixion and
similar atrocities being very common.
Undoubtedly the, kaiser was aware of
what his soldiers were doing, and to
defend their conduct he lent a ready
ear to the unfounded charges made
against the Belgians.
"I have already framed a message
which I intend sending to your presi president
dent president regarding the use of dumdum
bullets by the Belgians and French,"
the kaiser went on. "We have ample
proof to establish this charge not only
in the character of the wounds suffered
by my soldiers but in the shape of un unused
used unused cartridges which we found in the
captured forts."
Strangely enough, the kaiser sent
off his protest to President Wilson
about the same day that President
Toincare forwarded a similar protest
based upon the use of dumdum bullets
by the Germans.
Regarding the violation of Belgium's
neutrality, the kaiser was able to of offer
fer offer no reasonable argument. The fact
that he was willing to pay Belgium for
permission to allow his armies to go
through that country was apparently
sufficient justification in his eyes for
taking by force what Belgium refused
to sell.
"How foolish of Belgium to have re resisted

At a subsequent interview we re referred

the neutrality of China when she sent
troops through Chinese territory to
seize Kiao-Chau.

more positive proof against them. The
Belgians were simply England's tools !"
Some of the arguments the kaiser
raised in his discussions with me re regarding
garding regarding the war were so weak and
untenable that one might well doubt
his sincerity in urging them, but I
shall give them for what they are
"They refer to us as the Huns !" th
kaiser observed bitterly. "If your

Several prominent Poles, who were

destruction and .depredations were
committed entirely by German troops.
The Russians had occupied the houses

until they were driven out by the Ger Germans

committed and they had convincing
evidence that in every case the Ger German

is customary to pay for It. That the
Germans were good takers but poor

which the kaiser narrated to me, and
the keen enjoyment he derived from
them can be fully understood only by
those who know how much the kaiser
appreciates getting something for
"Roumania wanted our gold for food
products," he told me. "They demand demanded

prices on their wares; but we needed
what they had to sell and we were
ready to pay even the outrageous
prices they demanded. And then they
foolishly declared war against us and
we got it all for nothing I When I
spoke to Hindenburg about the con contemplated

we wanted and didn't have to pay a

The kaiser beamed all over as he
contemplated the results of Rouma Roumanian

When the German troops entered
Tarnapol, Russia, at a later time they
captured vast quantities of American American-made

"We were just figuring what this
seizure amounted to, and my army
doctors were strutting around as if
they owned the world," declared the
kaiser, "when one of my officers was
approached by a group of long-haired,
greasy Jews, who claimed that these
supplies belonged to them. They are
our private property; we bought them
and we should be compensated if you
seize them,' they contended. Did you
pay for them? my officer asked. No,
we didn't pay for them, but we gave
our notes,' they replied. Then,' said
my officers, 'when you take up those
notes we'll pay for these stores; in
the meanwhile we'll just take them.'
We secured bandages, serums every everything,

badly, and we got them all for noth nothing!"

German army lacked medical supplies,
but later I saw paper bandages In use.
I have previously referred to the
kaiser's defense Of the use of Zeppe Zeppelins
lins Zeppelins against Paris, London and other
nonmilitary cities. He claimed that It
was proper to make war on civilians,
because England was endeavoring to
starve Germany. On one occasion I
pointed out to him that in 1870 the
Germans had besieged Paris and had
starved Its population.
"The cases are entirely different,"
he answered hastily. 'Then we were
besieging a city and the civilian pop population

evacuate it before the siege began.
England is besieging a whole nation

children, who have nothing to do with
I couldn't help thinking of the
"whole nations" which had been ab absolutely

heel of Belgium, Servia and Poland.
The kaiser never admitted that the
destruction of the Lusitania was a re result

to the U-boat commander, but in dis discussing
cussing discussing the general subject of subma submarine

"What right have Americans to take
passage on these vessels, anyway? If
they came onto the battlefield they
would not expect us to stop firing,
would they? Why should they expect
any greater protection when they en enter
ter enter the war zone at sea?
"Don't ever forget," he went on, "a
bullet from a pistol would be enough
to sink one of our U-boats. How can
we stop and board vessels we encoun encounter

for us to do sink the vessels."
When I suggested that while the
