There were eight wise men in Ocala Tuesday night who turned deaf ears to the blandishments of the circus and instead hied them to Red dick to attend the K. of P. district meeting, held with Millwood Lodge No. 91. ' Millwood is one of the most thriv ing of Marion county's several thriv ing K. of P. lodges. It has lately finished a lodge home, with a large community room on the first floor .and the castle hall on the second. The lodge rooirf is handsome and well fit ted and attracts the favorable notice oiJ aD who enter it. ' Millwood lodge is flourishing and . made up of a fine set of men, most of them well known in Ocala The offi cers are C. B. Howell, C. C; H. Gat rell Jr.. V. C: Rev. McAuley, prelate; M. L. Shealy, M. of W.; S. L. Fridy, Kj of R. and S.; C. J. Fridy, M. of Ex.; Walton H. Bishop, M. at A.; A. N. Rou. I. G.; T. L. Brothers, O. G. Tuesday night, the chancellor com mander having work on the floor, ., Knight McCauley presided and Knight A. N- Ralph took the vice chancel lor's chair. N It was a grateful surprise to the .lodge t)o have the head of the order in the state, Grand Chancellor Watts, .. present. The grand changellor had spent the day at Micanopy, fishing, .with Dr. Watkins and came over in , the evening to meet with Millwood. . After the lodge organized, there TV CS0 Oil CbUUACOt? A JL JllX liA-lVy glUUU cellor. Mr. Watts is an easy and . earnest speaker, and his talk was - heard with pleasure and profit. After hearine the errand chancellor. the lodee put on work in the first rank, and the lessons of a nacre were taught to Rodney Carn. The young . man went bravely thru the ordeal, and it became evident to all that he would ; in time become a goodly knight. ,.This work finished, District Deputy . Grand Chancellor W. W. Stripling . took the chair, and the business of .. the evening was rapidly attended to. By this time the good knights were , almost good nights, for they had la- bored long and strenuously and were drawing their belts tight to press the sides yof their tummies together! But TOWN PESTS The Tramp is a Pest that blooms In the Backyard only In tho Summer. When he Shows Up at the kitchen door, summon Faithful Hector," inven tor of the Bum's Rush, and have him Usher the Tramp into the Alley. If We gotta Work for our Eats, why should Tramps coast through the World on their Nerve? - , mi 'r ,ar "v. "vi e im ji i i i i i i i ' W. - 1 aaaVSftesK I", I J I just then some one smote lustily upon the door and the word was passed within that .supper was ready It was ready indeed, and all the knightly throng descended to the big room down stairs, where the festive boards were laden with purlo and the hospitable hostesses passed back and forth providing coffee, and as fast as a dish was emptied replacing it with another newly filled. It has been said that the art of making really, truly American purlo was acquired in Red dick, and after eating the contents of two big, well filled bark dishes this scribe conceded that there was much foundation for the story. ' Many of the good ladies of Reddick were present, serving the viands, in which they were aided by a bevy of blooming Florida maidens, whose good looks explain why autos from many other points head toward Reddick so often on Sunday afternoon and moon light evenings. Following the supper, Grand Chan cellor Watts,' Messrs. Stripling and SJ C. Mayo made appreciated talks; Following this was a little fun. Mr. C. M. Carn rendered his always mirth proyoking darkey preacher sermon, and Rev. R. Y. Walde'n, a monologist and imitator of considerable merit, gave two funny stunts. In one he imitated a dogfight so faithfully that a dog which had slipped into tho crowd bristled and barked. In the other he crybabied so genuinely that half the crowd laughed and the other half wanted to cry. Soon after, the party broke up and all returned home. The eight wise men from Ocala were Messrs. W. W. Stripling, I. U. Forbes, W. W. Rilea, Darden, Todd, Carn, Hendrix and Benjamin, who came into town at 11:1 P- m- their hearts full of content and their tummies full of purlo. ' CLARK FOR GOVERNOR Congressman Frank Clark an nounces that he will be a candidate for the office of governor in the next election. Mr. Clark is a man of brilliant at tainments, strong character and with wide knowledge of public affairs. He has been a good congressman for nearly eighteen' years, and has been elected for two more. If he is elected governor, he will make a good one. The indications are that there will be at least four candidates in . the next gubernatorial race. We cant prophecy the election of any one of them, but we can say without fear of contradiction that it will take a mighty swift 'runner to outdistance Frank Clark. ' REV. E. M. HENDERSON ' The Rev. E. M. Henderson, former well known and highly esteemed Mar ion couny man, died in Jacksonville at an early hour this morning. H had been ill but a very slort time and his death will come as a great shock to his multitude of friends. Mr. Hen derson was pastor of Woodlawn Bap tist church, Jacksonville, one of the most active churches in the city. He had served in that capacity for a num ber of years and had achieved large success. It will be remembered that he recently married Miss Grace Stanaland of Lynne. The remains will be brought to Ocala on the Seaboard limited today and at once carried to the old family home at Lynne. . The funeral services are to be. held at the Oklawaha Bridge Baptist church to-, morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock. Count less friends in this county, where the deceased grew to manhood, will be deeply grieved to learn of his demise and the surviving kindred will have the tenderest sympathy of every one. SMITH MUST YIELD TO SECTARIAN SENTIMENT (Miami Herald) Naturally, the overwhelming polit ical victory of Governor Alfred E. Smith, in connection with his won derful personal popularity in New York state and elsewhere is moving his ardent admirers, and he has thou- sanas 01 tnem, to suggest him as available timber for the democratic nomination for the presidency in 1924. A great leader, a wise governor, a clean man and politician, Governor Smith will appeal to those democrats who are now surveying the field in the hop that they can select a man who can carry the party to victory in the next presidential election. But, unfortunately there is a condi tion in this country that cannot be overcome by argument, the mere dis cussion of which arouses the most intense controversy, everywhere. Governor Smith is not of the re ligious faith from which presidents of the United States have always been taken. The mere suggestion of a president from the religious organi zation to which he belongs would open up a religious controversy that would incalculably injure the whole country. It is unfortunate that we are not wise enough, not liberal enough toi put our theories as to religious free- J CHRISTMAS GIFTS should be order dom into practice, but the facts are led now at THE BOOK SHOP. 14-3t as they are,' and we will have to de pend upon further years of education and tolerance before we can hope to dn full justice to such men as Gov ernor Smith. HAMP CONSOLES HIMSELF Ocala, November 14th( 1922. Editor Star: I read with profound interest your editorial on the Ocala postoffice in which you made repeated reference to myself, and I note with much interest the appellation "B. R. A.," meaning as you say, Benevolent Republican ' Autocrat. I immediately after reading it, went to my library to determine just the meaning of this term, but being un able to find 1 anything there satisfac tory upon the subject, pther than the Autocrat of the Breakfast Table, and in my hurried review of this being unable to apply the subject matter of your remarks to the writing, I have concluded that your division of it into three parts is upon the same plane as the : negro preacher who announced his text to his congregation in the language, "My brethren, I divides my subject into three parts. The first is about which I know nothing, the sec ond is about which you know nothing, and the third is about which neither you, I, nor Gtod Almighty know noth ing." . It is apparent to me that taking these three words, Benevolent Repub lican Autocrat, that they must' stand upon the same footing because it Is evident that I know nothing about 'benevolence," that you know nothing about the "republican party," and that neither you nor I nor God Al mighty knows nothing about an "au tocrat." However, feeling as I do, and know ing that you wrote the squib without any effort to conjure up differences between friends of many years, I therefore must quietly close my offic. and in my solitude, sing lowly to my self the first lines of that famous little ditty written by the immortal Homer Shapespeare Whittier Riley, ,"Tis music to the gambler's ears to hear the losers' cry." Believe me, Ben, I have some ear for music. Yours truly, H. M. Hampton. Dear Hamp: All this is interesting, but it does, not tell lis if you intend to accept the honorable title of B. R. A., or have it wished on you. , . We cannot accept the negro preach er as authority. As we, and you, know, most .'; ridiculous darkey re marks are put into their mouths by white men, and it is strange that one of your political faith adds to the downtrodden colored man's burdens. That stuff about your not being be nevolent you should not hand to us, for we have caught you at it several times. Well bet you a ticket to the fair that we can write two columns of authentic history about the repub lican party without looking at the die tionary and that you can't.' As for an autocrat, .we all know it is directly the opposite of a democrat so that disposes of your argument. True it is that politics is not worth even a little personal friendship, let alone one of, long standing, but poli tics, death and taxes we will have with us always. You need not have told us, Hamp, that you have an ear for music That is self-evident also that you have an ear for a musician. SENATOR FLETCHER'S CORRECT STATEMENT (Times-Union) :" Senator Fletcher, in his very admir able address, delivered here on Arm istice Day, briefly but none the less patriotically and warningly said: "Brand us as tin-American, if they be here, and keep out forever if they come, those who would jeopardize the physical safety of the nation, the right to live undisturbed under the institutions and customs planned by the fathers the opportunity to im prove the national well-being of our people in agriculture, industr yand commerce." Here is something for constant, serious thought and the most considerate action. REGULAR MEETING MASONIC LODGE Thursday night regular meet- ' ing Marion-Dunn Lodge No. 19. Work in-master's degree. A.

If all our wishes were gratified how poor we should be! - Differences of opinion; however, do not change the facts in the case. What a lot of Insulting things yov would say to people if yon dared, i Your faith is not measured by your appreciation of the faults of others. . He who does not preach with what he is will never persuade with what he says. There Is not much demand for people with abnormal nerve, except as book agents. Some have a hard time picking out a car for heaven because all the lower berths seem to be taken. The man who sets out to learn how to make a lot of money does well to learn how not to lose It. -Chicago Dally News. ... FARM JOURNAL SAYS: . Sleep with your mouth shut; keep your mouth shut also when angry. . There are several kinds of health In surance. One of them Is a pair of good overshoes for every' za' ember of the family. The language of flowers Is tender and beautiful, but It contains no sat isfactory expression for the man who stubs bis toe. Uncle Levi Zlnk says that some men are honest as the day Is lfng, but they enjoy themselves best In the win ter months. We hear that 2,500 Bve PeOsn ft ess recently arrived In London, and ex pressed much satlsfactloa at tho sights of the metropolis. The most dangerous man m society is not the man who robs his neighbor, but the one who stands back and says, "It's nothing to me what ether folks do." P1TH0GRAMS One fool Is enough to stock' the family. . 4 The gladdest day of any man's Ufa is tomorrow. Funny how a man's mistakes always trail after him. Stealing chickens Is a misdemeanor even if you like 'em. There is no hope for the man who believes himself a failure. ODD FACTS In Japan, dresses are often sold by weight.
