Daffef antad Gerimans.
The chlarneter and teomilrnment, of
the population of north Sleswle lare
very quiet and peaceable. As an of-
ficial Prussian record of criminal cases
states, there Is in the whole German
empire no single province In which so
few sentences are passed by the critn-
Inal judges as In north Sleswick.
There were only half the Prussian aver-
ago of theft cased and cases of robbery
with murder and murderous assault.
These favorable crime statistics are
due principally to the good bringing up
and intelligence of the middle and
lower classes as well asto to the cordial
and harmonious family life of the Dan-
Ish population. Among the Individual
members of the family there always
exists a consistently affectionate and
hearty tone In their intercourse with
ouch other. I visited many theaters,
restaurants and tnes, which were prin-
cipally frequented by the Danish in-
habitants, but Iowhere saw an Im-
proper action nor an Ill mannered of-
fense. The Intercourse between master
and servant Is also always friendly and
polite.-W. Hartmann In Nineteenth
Century.
Dell tlngrl f In London In t10".
Here Is an extract from a journal of
the year 1609: On arriving In London
we henrd a groat ringing of bells In
almost all the churches going on very
late in the evening. We were Informed
that the young people do that for the
sanke of exercise and amusement, and
sometimes they pay considerable soms
as a wager who will pull a bell the
longest and ring it In the most ap-
proved fashion. Parishes spend much
money In harmoniously sounding bells,
that one being preferred which has the
best bells. The old queen Is -said to
have been pleased very much by this
exorcise, considering It as a sOn of the
health of the people.. They do not ring
the bells for the dead. When a person
lies In agony the bells of the parish
he belongs to aref touched with -the
clappers until he either dies or recov-
ers again. As oon as this s1gn Is
given everybody In the street as well
as In the houses falls on his knees of-
fering prayer for the sick person.
Suicides on 'Blue Monday-.
A sctentist whio hal made a study of
suicides has discovered that more wom-
en commit suicide on Monday than on
any other day of the week.
Monday, "blue Monday" as It has
long been called, is one of the most
trying days of the week for women
who are housewives, prIncipally be-
canuse It is "wash day." Breakfast is
usually served earlier than on other
day and more hastily prepared. T
children are early hurried off to school
and dinner Is often "pleked up." "Blue
Monday" Is the ope ddy in the wee
when a housewife's troubles, hard
work and annoyances seem to come all
at once; hence the significant name
for the first working day of the week.

Friends Welcome. Pastor.


VERY. ENJOYABLE OCCASION.

Other Pastore Unite In Wel-
coming Pastor Carpenter
For, Fourth Year.
The members of the lone Mission So-
ciety of Kavanaugh Meihodlst church,
this .city, tende:ed atn enjoyable recep-
tion to Rev. and Mrs. W J. Carpenter, at
the parsonage Friday. ev,.,ing from 7:30
to 1o:3o o'c'eck,.
lcsides .he congregation, of which Mr.
Carpea'.eI h'3 been the beloved pastor
for lie last four years. there were p-esent
Rev. and NM s. J. B. Holley, of the First
Baplist-church; Rev. and M-s. T. I'. Hay,
cf the ni at Presbyterian church; Rev.
Jno. Gray, rec:oerof Holy Tritity Episco-
pal church and a number of other friends
from the congregations they serve.
Several of the ladles present gladdened
the 'hearts of the guest, by rendering
some excellent vocal and instrumental
music, and that which was:. neither least
nor last on the podgraut wasa thie serving
of refreshments which were mutch en-
joyed by all:
Major W.L. Floyd delivered an elo-
qi ent address of welcome to the much
beloved pastor and wife; his amiable
daughter and several sons. The'addresa
consisted of both humor and unfeigned
affection, snd Rev. Carpenter's response
was eloquent and in the samune spirit as
was the address of welcome by Major
Floyd.
The reception frost beginning to e'ad
was an enjoyable affair, and all seemed
to go away feeling better for having at,
tended it, and some we:e heard to say
that they were sorry that according to
Methodist confe.-ence law Brother Car-
penter and his excellent family can re-
main in Gainesville only one mo.-e year
-having been here three years already.

KILLED BY RATTLER.
Remedy Failed-Try Iodlne and Ker-
oalne Oil."
Mr. 0' 1. Floyd weett out quail shoot-
ing recently and when about a mile and
a half west of the city, his valuable point-
er dog was struck it one of his front feet
by an immense rattlesnake. Mr. Floyd
immediatelyy located and killed- the snake
and then.gave his st.ention to trying to
save thlie life of his fine dog by injecting
large quantitities of permanganate of pot-
a31h in the wound with a hypodermic
syringe, and although it is conaide ed
one of the lest antidotes known, it failed
to have any apparetit, effect toward re-
leving the dog and the faithful animal-
died in great agony within fifteen min-
utes after it was struck:-Orlando Star,
Novembe.- 28.
Mr. Floyd is well known in Punta
Gorda. The above is reproduced as go.
ing to show that pirmanganate of potash
is- not to be relied upon. -
Now, let soe.eone try tincture of iodine,
ten to twenty drops its a wiae gla of
water every fifteen- or twentity mitntutes,
and report the result. "
When iodine Is not to be had-at o aie,
-saturate a cluth in klno:ene oil, apply It
to the wou.ad and keep the cloth thor-
oughly saturated. It is better, If pjass-
ble, to plunge the wound into a bucl.et
or tub of kerosene and keep it there un il
relief is secured. Kerosene is a prompt
and effective remedy for insect bi.e and
it may cure snake-bite. here's nothing
like trying. Try It, ad be sure to re-
port result.-Ilunta Gorda Herald.

Pounded Pastor.
The members and friends of the Ad.
ventist church of this city, desiring to
show their appreciation of the new pas-
tor, Elder I. W. King and hid family,
assembled .at the paior's hose a few
evenings ago, end gave the family an
appreciated pounding. The good things
carried and the friendly greetings were
such as to make happy the pastor and
his family.

By the deoisave vote of 57 to 18, the
United Btates senate, Wednerday,
paseed the hill carrying into effect I
he reciprocity treaty wit, Cuba.
The final vote was taken at ,-o close
if a day which was marked by a de-
fate which, while at times animated,
rag never acrimonious.. The principal
speeches were made by Mr. Spooner
or the bill and Mr. Bailey against ,L
n his remarks, Mr Bailey relorrej to
the recent agreement of the democrat-
ic caucus to stand solidly on party
questions and warned the republicans
that in the future they could not de-
pend on straggling democratic votes
In support of republican party menas-
ures, regardless of whether they were
or wer enot in accord wita democratic

The bill passed carries into execu-
tion the treaty between the, United
States and Cuba, which was ratill Ad
last March. The treaty provides fior
a reduction of 20 per cent from" the
rates of duty under the Dingloy law
on all Cuban articles Imported lsnto
the United States and a varying re-
duction of from 20 to 80 per cent from
the established Cuban Duty on articles
imported Into Cuba from the Unitol
States.
Mr. Spooner, In his speech, spoke of
the varying positions of the opponents
of the bill, an' especially of the intro-
duction of the Ndavlands resolution, n.
viting Cuba to become a part of the
United States, deprecating it and say-
Ing that he hoped it would be post-
poned Indefinitely, because, he sal.-,
sometimes Invitations are regarded as
commands.
"Let's confine our population, so far
as we can, to our own race," he said.
Mr. Spooner replied to tie charge
that the bill Is in The Interest of the
sugar trust, referring to the differing
motives attributed by the opponents of
the bill to the senators who flavor it.
"Some of them," he said, "say we
are sincere but stupid; others that we
are able, but dishonest. As to which
of these accusations is correct,' he
concluded, "we will leave them to set-
tie with the!r democratic colleagues
who support the bill."
Mr. Spooner contended that all reve
nue measures should originate In the
house of representatives, and said that
he did not see how Mr. Lodge could
reconcile his bill for the free admis-
silon of hides with this requirement.
Mr. Hoar did not agree with Mr.
Spooner that the president and the
senate could not make treaties affeet-
Ing the revenue without the assent of
the house of representatives. He did
not, however, believe in the policy of
treaties affecting the tariff and con-
tended that direct legislation was eas-
ler of accomplishment foan the ex-
change of treaties.
After the passage of the Cuban bill.
the senate ag-eed to the house reso-
lution provider ** for a holiday recess
from December 19 to January 4.
