There 1 M was a snarp ciasn Derween tne com munists and independent socialists over the question but the motion' was voted down. About 1000 delegates attended the meeting. The workers in the German indus trial and commercial establishments, who are now given an active voice in administration of them, were impress ed in the congress with the need of conserving raw products so that Ger many may produce sufficient finished commodities to enable her to establish credits abroad with which to pay for the importation of the most necessary food and raw materials.

The former minister ascribed the present economic crisis to under production, denying, that it was due to over consumption and he declared that Germany would be forced to sub sist on small rations for a long time. MARION COUNTY AT THE SOUTH FLORIDA FAIR (By Frank L. Huffaker) Just to more thoroughly establish in the minds of homeseekers from other and less favored states the fact that South Florida is as strong in the important matter of staple crop rais-s ing and thoroughbred stock breeding as in the production of golden citrus fruits and fancy-priced vegetables, the versatile county of Marion, of which Ocala is the county seat, is to le represented at the South Florida Fair by the largest and most varied exhibit brought down from that sec tion since the old state fair days. Needless to say, that means "some" showing. The exhibit will be in charge of County Agent W. A. Ses soms. . That the lands of Marion are equal to those of the corn belt of the middle west for staple crop production is well known to thousands; in fact, Marion county is really a "slice" of southern Illinois, Indiana and Ohio transplant ed in Florida with the climate and ether advantages of Florida added. Thus a magnificent exhibit of the fifty-fifty variety 50 per cent staples and 50 per cent citrus fruit is as sured. Marion is the pioneer county of Florida in the breeding of thorough bred livestock of all kinds, having earned the honor through the activi ties of the late Z. C. Chambliss and other noted breeders. The breeders have won grand prizes in the past and Marion is going out for another record in February. The display of the celebrated An thony Stock Farm of which E. C. Beuchler is general manager, would alone make the livestock feature of the fair complete. But to the show ing of this farm, the largest general farm in the South, many others will be added from different counties of the state. The Anthony farms will be repre sented by pure-bred Percheron stal lions, mares and colts, jacks, jennets and mules, Aberdeen-Angus bulls, sows and calves, fat steers, sheep, goats and hogs. Additional Fpace has been asked for by Mr. Beuchler, who is already preparing his entries for the "big show." Poultry will be an other feature of the Marion exhibit. Other counties of the same type have fallen in line for the forthcom ing fair, and mention of these will be made-in the daily papers later. In every department the fair is go ing to eclipse those of past years by a wide, wide margin. Boy's blouse waists $1X0 value re duced to $1. Come before your size goes. H. A.
