question for immediate consideration
is whether there shall be a discussion

death of Mr. Alfred Brooks of Old Old-town,
town, Old-town, who passed away in this city
last night-at the home of his. aunt,
Mrs. E. M. Howard, of pneumonia,
following an attack of influenza. Mr.
Brooks had been ill about a week,
and Tuesday his condition was so
serious that it was thought best to
bring him to Ocala, where he could
receive the best, of medical attention.
However, the earnest effort of his
physicians proved unavailing and at
half past six o'clock death released
him from his sufferings.
Mr. Brooks was 27 years of age
and was an orphan. He was the son
of "the late Mr. and Mrs... Wiley
Brooks of Oldtown, pioneer residents
of Marion county, who died when he
was quite young, leaving him at this
tender age in the care of Mr. and
Mrs. James Badger, who raised him
as their own son. His father was a
brother of Mrs. Howard.
Mr. Brooks was drafted and sent to
' a training camp a few months ago,
but was rejected on account of phys
ical disability. Mr. Brooks was un
married, but is survived by a large
number of relatives both in Ocala and
surrounding country.
The funeral svice will be held at
3:30 o'clock in the yard of the How Howard
ard Howard home, conducted by Rev. Wm. H
Wrighton. The pall bearers are
Messrs. N. Weathers, Cecil Clark,
.John Edwards, Frank Wetherbee, N.

Southern woman can disregard Mr.
Fletcher's reasons:
Editor Star: I beg to hand you
herewith extract from the Congres Congressional
sional Congressional Record, giving my speech and
partial report of the proceedings (in (including
cluding (including roll calls) in the Senate on
the woman suffrage amendment to
the federal constitution, proposed by
House joint resolution No. 200, Sixty Sixty-fifth
fifth Sixty-fifth Congress.
I opposed this amendment primar primarily
ily primarily because the qualifications and the
conduct of elections rests with the
states respectively, the states having
originally reserved these powers and
refused to delegate them to the gen general

Please note particularly Section 2
of the proposed constitutional amena amena-ment.
ment. amena-ment. While I do not believe it would
ever be necessary for Congress to
enact any legislation protecting wom women
en women in their right to vote in any state,
yet this section is identical with the
second section of the fifttenth amend amendment,
ment, amendment, under the color of which laws
were passed by Congress that kept
the Southern states in a turmoil for
years following the war between the
states, placed the conduct of elections
under the supervision of federal offic officials
ials officials who used their offices in inciting
the negroes to active participation in
politics, and generally demoralized
conditions in the Southern states of
the Union. I know the people of
Florida do not want any more federal
interference with their elections, no
matter under what guise. A power
granted to Congress to enforce wom woman'
an' woman' suffrage, which would be totally
unnecessary because the first section
of the proposed amendment, if sub submitted
mitted submitted and ratified, would repeal any
state law in conflict therewith, would
very easily be made the means of re reestablishing
establishing reestablishing the system which the
South,-with the help of fair-minded
men from other sections, succeeded in
throwing off af t er many years."

proposed amendment that the num number

Miss Rebecca Gist of Mcintosh has
favored us with a bagfull of those

en dozen of which will make a pretty good
lunch. We notice the cultivation of
pecans increases in this section, and
we hope the time is near when there
will be a grove of the trees on every
farm. Pecans are a valuable product
and we are much prejudiced in their
favor. When knocking around in
western Texas and Mexico, some
twenty-seven 'years ago, we were in introduced
troduced introduced to a most delicious candy the
greasers made of pecans and sugar.
It was built on the style of our well well-known
known well-known peanut bar, but for flavor had
the peanut tied to the post. A girl in
a hammock on a moonlight night, a
box of pecan candy and a guitar made
a combination that we think it would
pay to transfer from the Rio Grande
to the Oklawaha, all the better from
the fact that the sugar as well as the
nuts can be grown and manufactured
right here at home.

My Lost Friend
Friend of my later years,
Though by your grave I stand,
I see through a mist of tears
Your smile, your outstretched
' hand.
Some rare, sweet hours we had,
From life's keen striving spared;
I grieve, yet I am glad,
Remembering what we shared.
Oft, in the crowded days
That kept us long apart,
You passed beyond my gaze,
But never from my, heart.
Brave soldier in the fight,
Comrade of my campaigns,
You made my burden light,
Shared by defeats and gains.
Steadfast and sure and true,
Not in your greatest stress
Had you one doubt I knew
Your worth or loved you less.
Look back from the beyond,
Lead comrade, kindred soul,
And you shall see the bond
Between us strong and whole!
Your look, your voice, your touch,
I love without amend;
But, though I miss so much, j
I have not lost my friend.
Until in Lethe's tide
I, too, my cup shall dip,
Remembrance will abide
Of that fine comradeship.

county stockman gives the negative
side to compulsory dipping.
The time to decide dip or no dip is
drawing nearer and nearer. The date'
of the election is not so far away as
it has been and from the way every everything
thing everything is moving it doesn't seem that
anybody is interested in any way.
I have been asked what did I think
of the compulsory dipping law and
how I was going to vote on it. After
careful consideration I have decided
to come out in the open and express
myself. I am a stock man in a small
way, not many cattle or hogs, but my
friends and acquaintances combined
have a lot of stock of all kinds and
they are scattered in a number of
places in the woods of Marion county.
To. get this stock together and com comply

that some people' are in the act of
imposing upon us is more than a small
job. I am compelled to state that it
is next to an impossibility.
My understanding is that the gov government

every fourteen days for a period of.
eight months, and I talked with our

I haven't seen the law on this mat

The expert tick eradicator must have
made this impression on the stock
people as it seems to be a general
I am a law-abiding citizen and be believe
lieve believe in progress and advancement
but I don't see how the stock man of
ordinary means could comply with
the dip rulings according to govern government
ment government specifications and have time to
make hog and hominy. ;
In my simple conception of things
I don't consider our county ready for
any such law. We are or ought to be
too busy with other matters- to stop
and spend the better portion of our
time dipping. Therefore, I publicly
and emphatically state that I am
against the compulsory dipping law,
and shall vote against such measure,
and I hope my brother stockmen will
vote with me.
. I have no objection to voluntary
dipping, in fact, I think that is the
proper thing for us just now, and I
am sure if it proves practical and
profitable we will all volunteer.

the appearance of an old man en ensconced

The old man smilingly waved his

he replied, "so make yourself com comfortable,

Janey hesitated, but as he returned
to his absorbed contemplation of the

at last escaped her.
"Only the aged should sigh," the
old man remarked pleasantly. Janey
turned to look Into his shrewd eyes

The Ocala Red Cross Chapter has

or tooth paste, every old pewter toy
or vessel of any sort. TIN js made
from these and we MUST HAVE TIN
Platinum we have said is more
precious but that, too, many of our
members have. We ask the help of
each patriotic citizeq; of every store
using tin in any form; of every per person
son person willing and anxious to help win
the war.
We cannot use tin cans they are
tin "in nanfe only" but WE CAN
