"Destroy the Ox Warble," is the
counsel a headline in an agricultural
paper gives us. Sure. If any ox goes
to warbling in our vicinity, we'll do
what we can to discourage the effort.
Some one has a gentleman jennet

and his warble Is all sufficient, to say
noihing of a friend who is practicing

Hence, no ox warble for us.

ten o'clock breakfast could be elimh

light lunch at 5 o'clock and retire at

him to stand the rest of the day.

"George Ade recently wrote a very
clever set of rules on 'How to Be a

Arcadia has invited the Lakeland
Chamber of Commerce to come down
next week and .take a look at the avia
tion camps, and incidentally visit with
her. We have no doubt but that the
acceptance will be as cordial as the
spirit of the invitation, and that a
very large part of the membership
will avail themselves of the oppor
tunity to visit our pretty and progres
sive neighbor, and give Uncle Sam's
bird-men and their equipment the
once over. It will be a trip well worth
while in more ways than one.
Lakeland citizens are not strong
for tinkering with their charter, and
even meritorious amendments are
sometimes turned down. A new char
ter,, embodying the Ideas that make
for better and more effective govern
ment should be prepared and present
ed to the next session of the Legisla
ture. If the best and most patriotic
people of the community cbuld get to
gether and frame such an instru
ment, they would do a public service
of great value.
The High School Cadets marched

ery struggle and triumph in the cause
of liberty for the last 3,000 years has
drawn inspiration from Israel's strug- i
gle and triumph which the Passover
commemorates. Israel had triumphed
because Israel had been willing to
struggle; Israel had been victorious
because Israel had made great sacri
fice. Those that have been willing to
follow the leader of liberty have
reached the promised land of milk
and honey; those that murmured,
longing for the flesh pot and garlic,
died during the 40 years' wandering
in the wilderness. Here the Almighty
has exemplified to mankind that those
that are not ready and willing to
make sacrifice and battle for the
cause of liberty, freedom and lustice
are not only undesirable citizens hut
are undeserving of life and infit to
be counted among the family of freeman.
