committee a committee on rules were ap-

The Investigation committee reported
that they found .he books being taken
"care of by Mr. S. II. Weinges, that from
the best Information they could secure
the registration officer did not intend to
return to the State, and recommended
that the office be declared vacant.
The report was adopted, and a mno.iou
to reconimueud a person for appointment
to the vacancy was offered and carried.
There were several applications for the

Stockton, Jennlng, lHolloway,Sheats,
Barra and Others. ..
During the past week, Alachua county
has bet-n tue storm cente.- of poli.ics as
far as the sp;raunts for Sate Suuprintenu
dent of Public I.In.inction is concerned.
Mts s s Hliohlwny anid Sheats have spoke
at( several points in .le county. including
Waldo, Ilawh1orni. Micanopy, and New-
ber;y, and to.aigit they will speak' at
High Springs. O.he." candidates have
bee i at the mee:.Ings and addressed the
people, but Hoiloway a.nd Sheats- have
been the p.itcipal attraction. Sheets
has been expla;.ing the Booker Wash-
ington affair and otherwise defending
himself, while Holloway has.been ably
defending blimself in Ihe matter and
airing other blunders made by Sheats.
We have not attended any of the meet-
ings, but f.-om what we hear it seems
that Holloway seems to have Sheats some.-
In other sections of the State the Stock-
ton-Jeanings campaign has attracted
muqch attention. Slace Jenning% attacked
Stockton at Tampa recently, Mr. Stock-
ton has been pouring h sh ot into the
Governor in great and good shape. lie
has show up the Goveraor's actions in
signing the "Flagler Divorce Bill" and
mane:i that is giving the the Governor
no little amount of worry and vexation
of spirit. The debates have beev veuy
warm and it is eveywhe.e admitted that
the Governor is getting the worst of it.
tven his friends admit that he made a
grays mistake when he drew upon
himself the fire frnn Stockton's guns.
Hons. James K. Broome, James E. Al-
exander, Frank Clark and others, have
been attending some of the recent meet-
Ings and making some pleasing speeches.
The friends of iSenator Bsoome say he is
rapidly gaining strength all over the

My experience gained by close cou-
tact with the men In our prisons during
the last seven years had convinced me
that but a small percentage of the
80.000 now within prison walls should
be called criminals at heart. In this
statement I have been Indorsed by
wardens who have had a far longer
and more Intimate experience than 1.
and whose duty It Is to watch very
closely the actions, character and ten-
dencles of the men under their charge.
I believe that in every man's heart,
however hardened or hopeless the ex-
terior, there Is some tender spot. If one
knows rightly how to touch it, some
chord of sweetness that can be made to
vibrate to the very harmony of heaven,
amid all the Jangling discords of life.-

In Jpan the nose is the only feature
which attracts attention. The nose de-
termines the beauty or ugliness of the
face. according as It is big or small.
Thla Is probably due to the fact that
difference In noses constitute about the
only distinction between one Japanese
face and another. The eyes are in-
variably black, the cheek bones high,
and the chin receding. In Japan a lady
who has a huge proboecis is always a
great beauty and a reigning belle.
There are few large noses among the

Thi most northerly railroad In the
world was opened recently. For its
whole length It lips wwiln the Arctic
reglims. The greater part of it is In
Hwedilsh territory., ad only a small
part cuts througli the narrowest por-
lion of Norway until It riches the
Norwegian port of Narvik. The chief
object of the line, which now connects
the northern Baltlc with the Atlantic,
Is to open up the rich mineral resources
of North Sweden and to carry them
cheaply to Narvik. The new railway,
which will be known as tle Ototen
line. Is about 140. miles long, and cost
about pT.U(0GlO.--4iden Penny.

It has been so long since we had
bar rooms in Live Oak that we can

quantity of "booze" consumed then
and now. Of course a few jugs are
shipped to Live Oak, but not a sin-
gle drop of their contents are for
sale here. Thbre may be a few
here who get these jugs rather fre,
quently, but being as dry as Live
Oak in, it is far superior to any
open saloon or dispensary ever

that being dry like Live Oak, is

"Why are there more widows
than widowers?" a contemporary
asks. TheTe are many reasons
why. Wars make many widows
and but 'few widowers; drink
makes, thousands of widows, and
almost no widowers, and then,
when a man becomes a widower he
can generally mary again if he
wishes to, and he usually does,
while many widows are left in such
awful conditions as a result of the
lifetime cursedness of their depart-
