A.\er aliout a year of remarkable
1ttie tude andu good order in Alachuna
corurty another tradegy occurred-this
time at Roclielle-last Saturday morning
at about 9:30 o'clock.
At Rochelle Saturday morning J.
Cassels of Island Grove shot and serious-
ly wounded Joe \V illianison, of Micanopy.
Thi. shooting occurred at the railroad
depot, and in the presence of a large
number of citizens. Among those who
witlei-aed the shooting was Mr. Jno. R.
Zetrouer, who arrested Cassels and
brought hint to this city, where he was
placed In jail. The wounded man-Joes
IV illiamuson-was also brought to Gaines-
ville on the sajue train that bore the pris-
oner, and Drs. J. Harrison Ilodges and J.
1I Colson were called in and examined
the wounded man, and did what they
could to make him comfortable.
Those who saw the shooting seemed to
tlink it was uncalled for. They saw the
two umen engaged in conversation, but
could hear no words that- were uttered,
and saw tCassels draw pistol and shoot
Wtlliamson at close range, while there ia
no evidence that Williamson was armed.
persons woo anow DOutn men were sup-
prised at-the'occurrence. They were ac-
quaintances and had been friends.
Rumor says tnat both men were in love
with one and the same girl, and the
shooting resulted from jealousy.
The doctor say the wounded man is
doing 'ery well, and with good care will
get well. The man who did the shoot-
ing is still in Jail and will probably have
a commitment trial soon.

In the early history of Virginia and
Maryland tobacco was by all odds the
most Important crop. and It was even
possible at times to secure a wife In ex-
change for a moderate amount of to-
bacco, as In later days In the west a
squaw could be obtained In exchange
for a small amount of whisky. In 1Mf2
at Jamestown tobacco was made a Is,

Shaw Advises National Banks That He
Will Draw on Deposits.
Secretary Shaw has advised all spe
clal national bank depositories, Icplud-
Ing those of New York city, that they
will be required to pay, on account ol
the Panama canal purchase, 20 per
cent of their holdings of government
funds on or before March 25.
The 20 per cent aggregates about
$80,000,000, leaving about $20,000,001
to be supplle.l from the treasury. It
had been decided heretofore to have
the depository national banics In New
York city pay the Individual proper.
tions over to the New York sub-treas-
ury at once to meet at this.time the
payment of $10,000,000 due Panama
and later to pay the new canal com-
pany at Paris the $40.000,000 due it
on Qall of the national bank deposilo-
rica of New York city.
in view, however, of news received
from Par's later In the day to the
effect that the French at once would
call a meeting of its directors and car
ry out the formalities necessary to th
transfer of the title in the property to
the United States, It was thought best
to make the two payments to thu cana.
company and the republic of Panama
concurrently about April 1.


Fixed by Georgia Board for Return of
Property for Taxes.
All property owned by Georgians on
February 1, 1904, must be returned
for taxation and paid for during the
year 1904. The date was determined

ture for that purpose, composed of the
governor, comptroller general and
state treasurer.
Great secrecy Is maintained as to the
date fixed for the return of property
for If It was known. It sl not Improba-
ble that many people owning stocks
and bonds and valuable Jewelry would
take the same out of the state on that
date and return with It the next day.

A Washington special says- The

whole, Mr. Lawrence, of Massachu-
setts, in the chair. :
Mr, Webb, of North Carolina, called
Attention to the statement made a few
daysa ago- by Mr. Scott, of Kansas,- that
a negro had dined In the white house
while Mr. Cleveland. was president,
and answered that he had written the
former president sending him an e*-
tract from the Record and asking him
If the statements made by Mr. Scott
were true.
Cleveland Makes Denial.
Thursday morning Mr. Webb receiv-
ed the following reply, which he read
amid applause on the democratic side
"Princeton. N. J., March 2, 1904.
"Hen. B. H. Webb, House of Repre-
"Dear Sir-It Is a matter of small
concern to me that a Mr. Scott has
seen fit to use my name in a display
of his evil propensities on tne floor of
the house of representatives.
"In answer to yur Inquiry, however,
I have to may of his statement that
the colored nhan, H. J. Taylor took
lunch with me at the white house,
that It is a deliberate fabrication out
of the whole cloth.
"As far am Taylor Is concerned, I
understand, prior to hid appointment
as registrar of deeds at Washington,
that he had served as an assistant In
the office of the city attorney at Kan-
sas City. His nomination as regis-
trar was confirmed by the senate and
he served to that place with Intellil.
gence and efficiency. He baa sinca
died. Some people restrain themselves
from abusing the dead.
"My Inquiries concerning Taylor be-
fore his appointment and my observa-
tion of him during hls incumbency and
the -little I have known of him' since,
satisfied me that h!s character sl very
unjustly attacked by the diatribe of
Mr. Scott.
"One charge Isa made against Taylor
by Mr. Scott which he doubly clinches
with the truth when he declares:
'" He was a black negro.' I am
led, however, to doubt his familiarity
when he adds 'as black as you ever
saw.1 Vours very truly.
"Not a Fool Friend."
Mr. Webb said he wanted this de-
nial to travel that the statement of
Mr. Scott mght be overtaken.
"Mr. Cleveland was a friend of the
negro, but not a fool friend," sahl
Mr. Webb.
"He never by word or act encourage.
ad the dream of social equality in the
breast of the black man."
This was greeted with applause by
the democrats.
"Again," he continued. "he was the
friend of the colored man, but he was
also the friend of the southern white
man and sympathized with us In our
race problems and race burdens, and
that, sir, is more than Mr. Roosevelt
seemed ever to have done."
Scott Makes Apology.
Mr. Scott said he accepted the state-
ment of Mr. Cleveland as true and of.
fered his apology to Ihe former preal.
dent. In Justice to himself, said Mr
Scott, he desired to say that he never
heard the report denied.
Mr. Swanson (Virginia) asked Mr.
,Scott where he had heard the report.
to which Mr. Scott replied that he had
seen the statement in newspapers.
Mr. Swanson asked further for a
copy of a newspaper containing the
Mr. Scott explained that tnese state-
ments were made several years ago
and the papers might not be easily pro-
cured. He said that he had made full
apology to Mr. Cleveland.
Mr. Scott added that he had brought

To Prevent Soil Washinx.
The past two seasons have been un-
nasally favorable to soil washing, and
many acres of slope land have been
carried to the level bottoms below or
borne away by high water. This loss
of fertility It followed up yenr after
year would impoverish the hill land to
such an extent as to render it entirely
worthless for crop raising. As wash-
ing occurs mainly where soil Is loose
and 'sandy In texture, such ground
needs extra protection in the line of
drain ditches and cross plowing. Fre-
quently where It Is necessary to crop
the land situated on bill slopes, the
mere opening of a ditch at the tipper
end of the cultivated portion will pre-
vent serious loss from washing by
keeping the water from the land above
from coming down in Injurious quan-
titles over the field. The use of strips
of soil binders through the cultivated
field is also to be recommended. These
should be sawn crosswise of the bill.
and any good pasture grass will an-
swer the purpose provided the roots
are strong and penetrate the ground
to some depth. In plowing a field
that washes badly it Is well to bear In
mind that furrows made, lengthwise
of the hill are conducive to soll wash-
ing; hence It is always a good plan to
plow the-land crosswise. Organic mat.
.ter, such as barnyard manurte, rubbish,
hay or stubble plowed Under, will tmn-'
til entirely decomposed, aid In keep-
Ing the mail particles In their p'lace0
through heavy rWaifall. In the same

which hau sno other baasis than the
claim that the election lawb or con-
stitutlons of southern states contra-
vene the cons UtuUon of the United
States, will result In favor of the Sit-
ting member: Certainly this will be
the paae it the present precedent is
followed, until the supreme court of'
the United States passes upon these
constitutional questions and puts a
quietus upon agitation; .-
The committee 'in Ita report virtual-
ly says that the issues attempted to
be made before it belong properly to
the supreme court. It holds:
"If the house should unseat the con-
teetee on the ground that no .. valid
election was held, or could be held in
the district under the present constitu-
tion and election laws o0 South Caro-
lina, a similar construction -would re-
quire the house, In ease of contest, to
unseat all the members from South
Carolina and from most of the other
southern states, and that new elec-
tions could not be held to fill the va
cancles until the respective constihu
tons of these states had been chang.
ed so as to comply with tae recon-
struction acts. The question, there-
fore, is one of far-reaching Impor-
tance. It Involves in Its outcome the
right of a very large number of mem-
bers of the house to their seats. But
the decision would have no binding
effect upon South Carolina except in
this particular case.
"A legislative body is not the ideal
body to pass judicially upon enact-
ments of other bodies. We have in
this country a proper form for the de-
cis!on of constitution and other legal
questions. Any citizens of South
Carolina deprived of his right to vote
can apply for redresse to the proper
court and on up to the supreme court
of the United States. A decision of
that court would be binding, but a de-
s'slon of the house would not be con-
sidered binding or in any way estab-
lishing a precedent."
Dismissing the constitutional ques-
tion as belonging to another tribunal,
the commUttee decides that
"There is nothing in the record or in
the case to sustain any part of a
claim that the contestant, Dantzler,
was elected. It s1 Indisputable that If
an election were held at all in this dis-
trict, the contestee. Lever, was fairly

an ex-slave, unable to read or write
more than his own name. At the elec-
lion Dantzler only received 167 votes
against 4,220 cast for Lever. Dantzler
alleged, however, that upward of 7,000
negroes appeared at the polls and of-
fered to vote for him, but were pre-
vented from doing so. The evidence
showed that there was no real basis
for this claim-that. In fact. It was for
the most part Imaginary.

The egg eating hen I* an Intolerable
nuisance. She Is a twin ulster to the
chicken eating hog. There have been
many plans suggested to cure. her of
this habit, but she is still at It, and
perhaps always will be. Her appe-
tite is certainly an abnormal one when
It craves the contents of an egg. Some-
times red pepper has been put tIn the
shells of the nest egg, but the experi-
meat has not been a roaring success.
One poultryman uses heats that are so
small that the hen cannot reach down
under her body to peck at the egg after
shabe has laid It and the nest box is so'
high-that she cannot reach the egg
when she stands, upon the edge of the
box. Nests are sometimes provided
that allow the egg to roll down Into a
darkened place where the hen cannot
ice It and she wonders what she Is
cackling at. Hens rarely eat porcelain
eggs.-Green's Fruit Grower.
Not Patent on t. .
Some of the best horses -ever brought
to America were' bred by the farmers
of England, France and Belglium.
These men 1got a -good mare or two,
used them to Work their farms, bred'
them to the best sires they could find.
producing stallions that hand admirable
conformation and disposition for draft
horse sires. Some of tlie beat trolters
ever bred were produced by farmers
who owned well bred road mares nnd
Wanted then to good stallions. Who
will any lthaint these minen, who use the
dams for the purpose for which tbeir
produce Is Intended, cannot produce
horses that are equal to those of the
great breeding establishments? asks
Stockman and Farmer. They can and
often do. There Is no patent on horse
breeding, no advantage in favor of the
millionaire who keeps his brood mares
In.Idleness over the farme. who works
or drives his. It will pay any man

her progeny.

Meat and (Grain Forr Foo4.
Foods colitaining protein-are given
rows to Increase the milk production.
and hens to increase the quantity of
eggs and improve their quality. The
dairyman understands full well that in
feeding grains which furnish protein
to cows, a suiffelent quantity of succu-
lent food must be given to formulate
the proper balance. Yet this same anan
protests when It Is suggested tlint the
same rule should apply to laying hons.
The proper feeding of poultry Is not
so difficult as any one would think.
nor Is the feeding of any animal, for
that matter.
If one possesses a knowledge of the
needs of the nnimnl he Is feeding, lie
will readily find out w'lint foods will
supply such needs. Feed tlie variety
of grains by nall means as well as an
occasional supply of animal feed. ti1nt
do not overlook thi need for green
food. This same rure works the oilthier
way, so do not attempt to obtain re-
mills from green food and grain ant
the expense of the animal fond. In
some way get at the properly bnalanred
ration and then profitable results will
folloiw.-Indianapolis News.

the various speeles have economized
space by building their nests one above
