If every lot owner inOcala planted just one orange tree this winter, just imagine the difference in appear ance three years hence. The Prince of Wales said that "Mat ters are very striking in America," but that was before the big railroad strike began in England. Abraham Lincoln said. "A nation cannot exist part bond and part free." And if he had lived today he would say, "A nation cannot exist part striking and part struck." Hugo Haase, leader of the minority socialists in the German reichstag, confesses that the people are tired of upheavals and "the communists rec ognize the waning of revolutionary enthusiasm.'J Savs the Leesburcr Commercial: "Those-Marion county motorists over locked one big bet. There are a lot of pretty girls in Ocala but they must not have been invited. Only a few of them went." John Mooney, brother of Tom Mooney, the murderer and bomb thrower, sent this advice to the Chi cago Federation of Labor, "Adopt the British labor idea more holidays and mere general strikes." Joe Earman of the Palm Beach Post, who has been trying to recupe rate at Tate Springs, Tenn., is ' back at West Palm Beach, as busy as ever with public and private affairs. Joe, who is chairman of the state board of health, is kicking against the propos ed leper colony for Florida. Gov. Catts informs the Tampa Tri bune that it will have to' settle with him and. his two' sons when the cam paign is over. Its likely that if the gov. calls on his two sons to accom pany him on any such excursion, they will lay the old man on a comfortable mattress and sit on him till he prom ises to be good. More than 10 per cent of the mar riages in this country end in divorce, and the number, of divorces ha&v been steadily increasing for thirty years.

Out of 108,702 divorces, 12,486 were for in fidelity and only 3625 for drunkenness. PUBLICANS AND SINNERS Says the Gainesville Sun: "Thanks,; dear brother, of the Ocala Star, forj the invitation to go down to your fine j town and sit with the publicans and j sinners. We've got some here too, j although Gainesville s population is as good as there is in the world. The Star says: "'We observe that Col. Bob Davis of the Gainesville Sun has stirred up the Pharisees in that village by rec ommending picture shows on Sunday afternoons. Come, sit in with us publicans and sinners, colonel; the Lord associated with us quite freely when he was on earth.' "The little article we wrote, favor ing Sunday afternoon moving pic tures, we wrote with good intent and to subserve a good purpose. The ar ticle was wilfully misconstrued by some and by some was misunderstood. I suggested afternoons and specially specified that no church or Sunday school hour should be interfered with. I thought, while good people of ample means were riding along the cool roads and through the green woods, and there were poor people who had nowhere to go nothing to do, but sit and brood and become bolshevics, it might be well to provide something for them. For our pains we have been told that Gainesville is good enough as it is. We notice that you speak of us, dear Star as a village. Maybe that is what we are just a village. We love, however, to call ourselves a city. "But village or city, we go and sit with publicans and sinners. We would be glad to know that Christ was sitting there with us. We have com mitted many sins, but we know of one of which he would acquit us. He would put his hand upon our head and say: 'Son of sin, you are not a hypocrite.' What we have had to say about this recreation was simply our idea. It may not have been a good one. May be it will be best for the poor to save and get an automobile. Then they can ride to their hearts' content and commit no sin." A writer in the Gainesville News, Elmer McCreary, we suppose, tells of some of his experiences in France. He says that when he and a number of other whites were at one of the hos pital camps, they were compelled to eat and sleep, mixed promiscuously with negroes, tho' there was plenty of room to allow them to be separat ed, and he says it was the fault of the officers in charge of the camp. Any American officer who brought about such a state of affairs must have been vastly ignorant of the feel ing of both white and colored soldiers. Neither wants to mix with the other. Tonight in Madison Square Gar den, New York, King Albert of Bel gium, one of the great war heroes of the world war, will attend a meeting of the American Legion. This is a splendid indication of the prestige that the legion has acquired. It is the official organization of the men who were in the service, between April 6, 1917 and Nov. 11, 1918. The legion has been chartered by an act of Con gress. A special committee has been appointed to secure the membership of every ex-service man in Marion county in the legion. Stephen C. Mason, president of the National Association of Manufactur ers, says: -"Government ownership proposes a speculative experiment at colossal expense in an hour when the nation staggers under the burden of unprecedented debt. No plan could be devised that would more certainly demoralize the business structure of the nation, jeopardize the savings of the industrious or more certainly in crease the cost of sustaining the life of every human being in the nation." . The Walsh-Dunne report on Ire land, made public some months ago, and which caused great indignation m America against England, and consequent irritation in England against America, has been proven to be a tissue of lies. Walsh and Dunne are prejudiced against America any how, and when they went to Ireland they fell into the hands of the Sinn Fein and accepted as gospel truth all that was told them. President Wilson was criticised at Billings, Montana, for his remarks about radicalism and unrest, it being argued that these were a direct in citement to unrest leading to bol shevism. The president said: "As long as things are wrong, I do not intend to ask men to stop agitating. I only intend to beg that they will agi tate in an orderly fashion." Rev. F. B. Meyer, a widely known Ltndon minister, says: "Many girls think that men can be won by the flesh, but men are too sensible. They are not going to marry girls who go about half naked. A man may flirt with a girl who goes to extremes in these fashions, but he will not marry her." The trouble is and around Helena, Ark., is said to be greatly owing to the work of agitators, who dissemi nated seditious talk and sowed sedi tious literature among the negroes. There is too much of the latter cir culating around here and we would f advise the colored people to notify j the postoihce to reiuse it. One of the;e publications comes to our desk; ic has no sense nor patriotism in it, but does all it can to incite the ne- groes to nyni me wnites. lhe men: who send out this sort of stuff are no friends to the negroes. They want to use them in a revolution against the government, but if such a revolution succeeded the negroes under it would receive much worse treatment than they do now. There are about six white men in this country to one ne gro and recent events show that piejudice against them in the north is much more bitter and unfair than in the .South. They should be wiser than to allow themselves to be used j as catspaws by either politicians or bolsheviki. YOM KIPPUR Today is Vom Kippur, the great Jewish Day of Atonement. It will be faithfully celebrated in all the Jew ish synagogues, institutions and homes in America. To its sanctity as the most important of the fast days, there is added a double significance for the calendar has brought Yom Kippur on the Jewih Sabbath, mak ing it a doubly sacred day, and it is perhaps the most tragic Day of Atonement in the history of ancient Jewry. From their home in Pales tine, from the shores of the Baltic and the Black Seas, from Poland and the frozen wastes of Siberia from everv foreign land into which Jewish relief workers have penetrated, the sad New Year message that comes to this country is ever the same "European Jewry is perishing." America is the only land in which the new month of Tishri, the Hebraic January, brings any joy to the Jewish population. The year of 5680, reck oning from the Day of Abraham on the Jewish calendar, dawned on Sept. 25th, the feast day, of Kosh Hashonah. It was not a feast day for some six million starving Jews of Europe be cause every day for the past four years has been a fast day for most of them. So today's Yom Kippur will ha all too easy for these millions to observe. The Jews in the , war-racked coun tries abroad have suffered more than any other people, and they are dying by thousands of starvation and dis ease. The Yom Kippur fast, during the twenty-four hours who no good Jew will allow food to pass his lips, will be little more than a continuation of the five-year fast that has been the lot of the 6,000,000 Jews in Europe. Orphaned children and widows are continually being turned away from the overcrowded charitable institu tions and food stations to die in the stieets of Poland and nearby coun tries. The only hope that the great mass of Jewry will survive the com ing winter depends upon America. The fortnight between Kosh Has honah and Yom Kippur is observed as a period of repentance during which the Divine Judge weighs' the earthly deeds against each individual before entering his final fiat in the book of judgment." This year it is a period of deep sorrow as well for many Amer ican Jews. The records of Jewish re lief agencies in New York show that several hundred thousands have tried without avail to trace their dear ones abroad who have been swallowed up in the chaos of war when communica tions were broken. These people are at a loss whether to hope that their loved ones are dead or that it is their fate to face a new year of terrible suffering and sorrow. Another sad phase of this year's Yom Kippur will b-i the memorial service for the dead, when almost every Jewish family in the stricken countries, together with many in America, will mourn the loss of one or more of their members. In view of the terrible situation abroad Jews throughout the country have organized campaigns and drives to raise a total of $35,000,000 in the United States under the direction of the American Jewish relief commit tee, the central relief committee and the Jewish peoples' relief committee, which are appropriately culminating iu many states with the beginning of the Jewish New Year. That terrible occurrence in Trau, which the Miami Herald has thrown a fit about, has caused much more'ex citement in the Herald office and the United States Senate than in Trau. The facts are these: Trau is a city on the east coast of the Adriatic, and until the war enfled disastrously for Austria was under control of that power. Under the rules of the armis tice, Trau is in the zone which is policed by Americans. The adjacent country belongs to the Jugo-Slavs. A party of Italian soldiers, acting with out the authority of their government, entered Trau. The Jugo-Slavs rallied ti drive them out. The American naval commander responsible for the peace of that part of the coast, land ed a small party of men, who request ed the Italians to withdraw. They did so, and the trouble ended. If they had not been there, it is more than likely there would have been a fight, followed by war between Italy and Jugo-Slavia. At the present stage of world affairs, Americans have more moral power than soldiers or sailors of other nations and their re quests are granted where the demands of others have to be backed by for'ce. The Herald should know this. But when its doesn't know that Egypt has never been under the control of Germany, and wheh it thinks the fa mous old cruiser Olympia is a battle ship, its ignorance on other subjects is not wondered at.
