Dar' Klowth'u Rat.
The story-of the- luck of the Howthe
Is well known, and down to very recent
tlhmes a0 member of that faminlly would
petmt a rat to be put to death. Itwas
said that -about the year 1750 -,tie twen-
ty-stX,.t Bareon Howth was giving a
banquet to hst'frlends when a rat rush-
ed into .tbiall, followed by several
dogs, and. j mping on the .table, sat up.
before Lord Howth as If appealing for
protection. He saved its life, and from
'that moment It never quitted him. At
last he aet out on a foreign tour, accom-
panied by his brother, who persuaded
him to leave the rat behind,
81tting in a hotel at Marseilles, the
%im au4denly flew open, and the rat,
dripping wit, came crawling in and
went sI'tsijt tq the fife to dry Itself.
Lord Howtihb brother, enraged at the
Intrultoa, selap the poker and dashed
out the.rati iramins. "You have mur-
dered mer" el ed Lord Bowth and
instantly fell down and expired.-Lon-
dam Tit-Elks.

"The custom house nuisance can be
greatly abated by a knowledge of for-
eign manners," says all experienced
traveler. "Politeness is not absolutely
thrown away even on American cus-
tom house ofltcia4s, and in Prance It is
three-quarters of the battle. The whole
secret of getting easily and comfortably
through the dounne lies in the greatest
possible politeness and tie least possi-

safe prelude to a happy and rapid re-

P'lowvln the Water.
A curious method of producing plat-
inum is reported to be practiced by the
inhabitants along the Turn river, 'in
Tomtsk, Siberia. They cull It "plowing
the water." A raft is consitructed, and
fastened to it Is an Inclined gutter of
boards, which at its lower end Is pro-
vided with an Irou plow. While. float-
Ing down the river they scrape or plow
Itsbottom.. The sand scraped out falls
intq the gutter and passes into a tub
filled with pine boighlis, upolIn which
platinum is deposited. The sand of the
Tura river and its tributaries is o rich
in platinum that even this primitive
production is profitableto to the peasants.

Grecian women possessed twenty-two
kinds of footgear, which may be
classed is those which cover all the

of shoe and sandal wearing can be
traced back' for some thousands of

General James Longatreet died Lat

afternoon at about 5 o'clock,- rather
suddenly from pneumoia.i
A few days ago he contracted a cold
which went Into pneumonia and hem-
orrhages came on, ovcota.xlg his
strength and causing his sudden death.'
His sudden end was a great surprise
to his family, as only a short time be-
fore he was discussing Improvements
to be made on his farm near the city,
and talked as though he had every
hope of life for some time yet.
At the time of his death his wife,
who was Miss Ellen Dortch, formerly
of Carnem.ville; his only daughter, Mrs.
J. Estin Whelchel, and his sons, John
G,-atd4 Randollh Lngatireet, WOrad
with him.
The general raised up on his bed and
-a great gush of blood came from his
mouth and through the old wound
which he received at the hands of his
own men through mistake at the battle
of the Wilderness, and he fell back
lapsing into unconsclousness.
General Longatreet returned to Jila
home in Gainesville two weeks ago
from Chicago, where he went for treat-
ment for cancer of the eye. The af-
fected member was X-rayed out, and
his general condition seemed to ba
better than in year before.
General Longstreet was first mar-
ried to a daughter of General John
Garland, United States army, and she
died fifteen years ago.
Five children survive the union,
namely, John 0., R. Lse, James add
Randolgh Longatreet, and an only
daughter, Mrs. J. Estin Whelchel. R.

from that state to the yVest Point mil-
Itary academy, where he was graduat-
ed in 1842, arid was assigned to the
l'ourth Infantry. He was at Jefferson
barracks, Mo., In 1842-14; on frontier
duty at Natchltoches. La., in 1844 45;
in Texas In 1845.46. and in Mexico at
the battles of Palo Alto, Resaca de Is

In the two latter engagements he was
brevetted captain, and major, having
already been made first lieutenant
February 28,. 1847. At the storming
of Chapultepec. September 8, 1847, he
was severely wounded. He was chief

In 1861 he resigned to Jqin the Con-

record throughout the war Is a matter

Makes a Counter Move.

Tihe Cbee-oo correspondent of the
Parts edition of The New York Her-
ald, cables as follows:
Might thousand Japanese troops are
ready to land at MaMsapho, and their
landing probably will moan war. A
regiment of cossacks Is expected at
Port Arthur. Reserves are belng
moved from Blagovyeshensk (the cap-
ital of Amur province in eastern Sibe-
ria), to Tsitslhar (in Manchuria). The
position of the troops In Manchuria Is
being rearranged, but their location
la kept a secret.
Russian Troops for Korea.
A semi.ofacial dispatch to a St. Pe-
tersburg news agency from Vladivos-
tock, and private information from
Mukden, state that owing to disturb-
ances between the Koreans and the
Japanese In Korea, the Rnuslan Soc-
ond rile regiment, at its full
strength, has been dispatched to Ko-
rea In order to protect Russian inter.
eats there.
Preparing for Action.
A special from Toklo says: The
Russian reply to Japan has not yet
been received. It is reported from
Vladivoetock that the Russian squad-
ron there Is preparing for action.
According to another report a Rus-
sian cruiser has left Port Arthur with
a small military force on board. Its
destination is unknown, but it Is
probably Chemulpo, Korea.
An extra edition of the Toklo ofl-
cial gazette has been issued contain-
ing army and navy orders prohibiting
the publication of any reports of the
movement of troops or war vessels
from this time on. Otherwise, the
Japanese authorities are not Interfer-
ing with the press messages.
United States Marines Arrive.
A detachment of thirty-five marines
from the United States steamer Vicka-
burg, now lying at Chemulpo, arrived
at Seoul, the Korean capital, Tues-
day, a guard for the American lega-
tioa. Another body of seventy ma,
rines will arrive later. The United
States transport Zaphiro Is also at
Chbemulpo, where Russla, Japan and
Great Britain have each one war ship.
Quiet prevails, but the palace is heav-
ily guarded by the Korean army.
Thb movement of the Japanese
troops and fleet are unknown In Seoul.
The attitude of the Korean govern-

sas -'hat the action of the United
States government is sincerely appre-
clated, the conviction being In high
quarters that Japan, If unsupported,
will not declare war.

'Praeticalely 91e Ur euu a. of the
soete Teasday Was devoted to s
speech by, Mr. Lodge co the situation
on the isthmus of Psanama. e dis-
cussed the abstract questloa of the
. right of the president to r ecoglll
the Iadependence of a new RatIoa
and concluded that such a prerogative
pertains exclusively to the oleo of
the chief executive. He also contenild-
ed that there had 'been a .general
expectation of. an uprising in Pana-
ma in case of the failure of the Hay-
Herran treaty ,and declared that the
I president could not have done less
than Inform himself of. the prospect.
Mr. Lodge argued that our interven-
tion in Panama had been only in the
Interest of peace and contended that
the president had not gone a ,stp be-
yond what the proprieties called for.
Mr. Lodge made reply to those who
contend that preventing the secesion
of the southern states In the civil war
debars this country from recognizing
any nation which has come into ex-
Iqtence through secelsion as has Pan.
ama. He deemed this argument un-
worthy. Really under present circum-
stances other could now be no forma-
tion o fa new nation except by se-
cession. The right of secession In the
right of revolution an4 has nothing
to do with law.
Many instances In which recogni-
tion had been purely executive were
cited and the senator asserted that
President Taylor had prepared to rec-
ognize the independence of Hungary
before a government had been estab-
lished. In reply to a question by Mr.
Bacon, of Georgia, Mr. Lodge said he
had voted for the resolution, declar-
ing that "the people of Cuba are and
of right ought to be free and inde-
pendent," but he said that as there
*was then no government In Cuba, his
vote then had not been InconMestent
with his present attitude. His con-
tention was that the recognlUtion of a
government is purely an executive
Mr. Lodge read from a speech made
by Mr. Morgan, la the fifty-seventh
congress, protesting against the rati-
fication of the treaty with Colombia.
Mr.. Morgan construed Mr. Lodge's
action to be an Inference that he (Mr.
Morgan) had altered his views con-
cerning the rights of Panama to the
proceeds of the sale of the ianama
canal concession.
Explaining that he had not changed
in any particular his views on th9
matter, Mr. Morgan said he supposed
the speech had been brought into de-
bate for the purpose of reproaching
him. He then asked Mr. Lodge:

creates alarm. The telegraph compa-
ny Is not aware of any delay In the

Is supposed that the Japanese govern-

reflected at Lloyd'E Friday, underwrit-

The London morning papers print
alarmist statements. The Dally Tele-
graph, in leaded type, says:
"ven In diplomatic circles hitherto
sanguine of peace, there Is a recogni-
tion that a rupture is all but inevitable.
Neither Japan nor Russia rill abate
anything- In their claims, and there is
no disposition on either side to Invite
the Umedation of friendly powers. It
is believed that Japan will take decis-
ive steps within the next few days un-
less a conciliatory message is dispatch-
ed from St. Petersburg, a contingency
which those best able to form Judg-
ment do not antleipate."
The Dally Man deals atmilarly with
the situation and says that It under-
stands that Russia has reached a de.
alsion, whiph, when communicated to
Japan ,must precipitate hostilities.

Peninsular and Oriental steamship

A Story which lies very near the
heart of the few, says Success. who
have come to know of It is that of
Carlo and the circus poster. Carlo Is
a little Italian boy of In0, and he lives
In one of the back tenements In Or-
chard street. To got to Carlo's home
one has to pass through the close, I I
smelling halls of a tenement that
faces the street., cross a court black
with countless children. and white
with drying clothes, an.d enter a dark.
carpetless room perpetually filled
with steam and the smell of washing.
Carlo lives there with an army of
brothers and sisters. Ireo blacks
boots and runs errands, and when thit
story began he had never been to
school He is a cheerful I1l('. soul,
ordinarily, .bue his heart knew one
bitterness-envy of the neosboys he
knows who are able to spell out thea
headings of the articlees'n the papers
they sell. It was only a few weeks
ago that Carlo made up his mlrid that
one'd letters can only be earned by
trying to learn them. Hie had no
books, he could not buy any, and he
knew nobody alho owned bool, ..
Newspapers were accesFsible, but tha
print was small and It tc to spell out the wor,-i. Then one day
he saw a circus poster
The circus poster was red nir.1
orange and wonderful. It had p10.
tIres of animals IeI kndwrand fat
more he didn't know-but they nil
had letters underneath that, with tlmI
help of the pictures and the little he
already knew, he was able to make
out.-- With his bootblack kit over his
shoulder Carlo stood by the half-hour
before this dazzling text-book. When
a -word proved too much for hi-m there
w as always a sympathetic passerby
to give him frtondly aid.
ITe meant to atop one morning 't3
spell once more the exaggerated
statements of the poster; btut, as ho
turned the corner, his heart failed
him, and he stood still, aghast. Whit-
coated men were tearing off his prec-
Ious text and were covering the board
with a sober theatrical announce-
ment. Carlo ran to them, breathless.
"You leave that there alone!' he
The men laughed and went on with
their work, whistling. When Carlo
realized that hit precious posters
were, Indeed, to go, he sat. down on
the curbstone and cried.
That was when hls new fritid, tihe
Man, chanced upon hin,. The Man
heard the billposters laughing, and
he wnas touched, because, as he sup-
posed, the little boy was crylMg over
the les. of the garnish pictures .of
Joys he never knew. When he- ques-
tioned Carlo, however, and heard the
truth, a now heaven on a new earthI
opened for the little heoy.

Scrap formed an acquaintance with
the baker's small daughter, Sophie-
not quite as neat and agreeable a
young person as could be uealred, so
his mother absolutely forbade him
to go over to the bakery or Invite So-
phie to our house. Time and again the
attraction across the street proved too
great, and Scrap disobeyed. At last
the mandate went forth: Scrap was
to be whipped If ho went again. This
was too terrible, so days passed and
Scrap contented himself with only
watching Sophie from the parlor wl-
dow. At last one afternoon he burst

worried about who is to be our next

anxious .to divert the mind of
"Brother Godwin" from the Sen-

an old quail trying to divert at-
tidtion from her young, but we
know too much about Brother Jor-
dan's tricks to be fooled away
from his nest only to see hint arise
and fly away while he laughs at
our stupidity. Brother Jordan is a
nice fellow, but he is mighty un-
easy right about now, and his an-
tics will bear watching.
Mr. Taliaferro denies most of
the charges brought against him,
and declares that Mr. Stockton is
as guilty as he ia, so the people
will have to decide the matter--
they are the arbitratrs. Taliaferro
also says: "I wish to see the yonng
men and young women of Florida
so equipped as will enable them to
successfully compete In every walk
of life with the youth of any 8tate "
That word 'compete" has a fa-
Amiliar sound, .since the'editer of
Thau STAR has been trying for
about two months to induce Sena-
ator Taliaferro, or some of -his
supporters, to say why he did not
allow otlaer young men to "com-

Now just watch him.

The candidate who is willing to
declare what his platform is is the
man who has some opinions and
convictions of his own, and is de,
cidedly safer than the man who is
afraid to tell the people what he
favors or opposes, but is willing to
promise anything and everything
for the sake of getting official po-
sition. Every candidate should be
willing to state his platform of prin-
cipals so that the voters may know
where he tands on important pub.
