The frame reached Eastlake about
two months ago, a day before Mr.
Goodwin arrived. He had planned to
have it in the water before his arriv-
al. but he delayed his order until af-
ter the Chicago motor boat -how, at
which he studied carefully all boats
on exhibition, and made final selec-
tion of the Outing model. This show
also enabled him to see the latest
things in motor-boat fittings. The
Chicago has been built by Robert I..
Fosnot. in the completely equipped
boat-building shop of Captain Fosnot
at Eastlake. and In this work Mr. Fos-
not has had the benefit of the coun-
sel of Mr. J. G. Lege. who in his
younger days acquired a thorough un-
derstanding of shipbuilding in Charles-
ton harbor. Mr. Lege spent many
hours of work on the boat and it was
put together and finished under the
personal direction of Mr. Goodwin.
The general order was that the Chi-
cago should be built as staunchly as
it was possible for a boat to be made.
The copper nails sent by the Outing
Company for the planking were dis-
carded, and clinch copper nails and
copper rivets were used for fasten-
ings. No boat ever carried a greater
amount of copper fastenings into the
water. Every detail in its construc-
tion has been carried out with- the
-reatest thoroughness by Mr. Fosnot.
and the compl)leted boat is a splendid
tribute to his superior skill as a me-
chanic. Much of the delay in the
building of the boat has been caused
by the painstaking care devoted to ev-
ery little detail of its construction

and the Ocala Wagon Works havc-

The Chicago is equipped with a two-
cylinder, 8-horse power gasolene en-
gine. made by the Cushman Com-
pany at Lincoln. Neb. It is one of the
best and highest priced marine motors
on the market, and is rated to drive
this 24-foot launch at about twelve
miles an hour. The engine is decked
under the bow, and is controlled by
automobile controls. This is the lat-
est development in gasolene launches,
and two or three of this pattern were
on view at the Chicago show. It puts
the motor out of the way and re-
moves the danger and unpliasant fea-
tures of an engine in the cockpit. The
muffler is under the stern deck, so that
the noise and dtisagreeal)ie odors

the exhaust are left bhindl. The
launch is equipped with a whistle and
acetylene headlights and a heavy an-
chor is carried.
The Chicago is the largest, sta'inch-
est and speediest launch on Lake
Weir. Much interest has been mani-
fested in its building and the boat-
house has had many visitors from all
around the lake during its construc-
tion. A large company witnessed its
launching on Monday.
This boat is too large and too good
#o lie out of water for ten months in
the year, and understanding how the
use of such a launch would add to the
pleasure of dwellers on and visitors

On Friday night, March 27, we had
the pleasure of listening to an excel-
lent lecture delivered by Miss Louise
E. Hollister of Evinston. 111. Miss
Hollister is a national organizer and
lecturer and has been working in
Florida since December. but left here
this week for West Virginia. Her au-
dience here was small but very atten-
tive, and learned many things along
the line of temperance work.
Miss Hollister takes an optimistic
view of the present outlook and said
that we were rising above the dark,
heavy cloud of intemperance, and
could already see the light of victory.
One force is led by our King Eman-
uel, and the opposing forces by King
Alcohol. Here she quoted several
passages from the Bible, promising
victory. There will be no more slums
when thie whiskey is banished from
the land. Some brewers say that W.
C. T. U. stands for "women continual-
ly torment us." We are glad that It
is so. Someone else has said that
these letters mean "we come to un-
Everything is not in the temper- *
ance reform, but the temperance re- .
form is In everything. There is the
biggest fight on now that this old
world ever saw, as the opposing sides
are mustering all their forces over
the whole country, and neither sid1ei
expects to be beaten.
She gave some interesting incidents',
that occurred at the national conven-1
tion In Nashville, Tenn.. last October.
In closing Miss Hollister sang the
"Welsh Glory Song." which was great-i
ly enjoyed. We hope to) have the
pleasure of listening to her again
some time.

he calls all the hens in the farm yard

Who is best able to judge of the value of Pe-ru-na? The
housewife who has used it in her home for years, or prejudiced,
sensational writers who have never used Pe-ru-na in their
lives? It will not take any fair-minded reader a minute to
decide which is the best evidence. The mothers of the Unitedd
States believe in Pe-ru-na. The half million women who
praise Pe-ru-na receive no pay for doing so, and the half
dozen editors who disparage Pe-ru-na get big pay for doing
so. Which is the best evidence?

Mrs. Annie Teach, 337 23rd
Avenue, Milwaukee, Wis.,
writes: "When I wrote to you .....

total wreck. I could not sleep
and thought I would die,
as there seemed to be no help

advice and took Peruna and
"I am now cured. I can eat
and sleep well, and enjoy life.

Peruna, should any of us be sick."
Catarrh of Worst Form.
Mrs. Amanda Long, 7237 Seeley
Avenue, Chicago, Ill., writes:
"I believe that I am cured of catarrh
of the worst form and of long standing.
"1 was almost a total wreck. I tried
almost everything and doctored with a
number of doctors, but they did me no
"I tried Peruna as a last resort, and by
the time 1 had taken one bottle I could
see that it was helping me, and so I con-
tinued taking it. I can say now that I
have not felt the slightest symptoms for
three months, and I think there is
nothing like Peruna. 1 still keep it in
the house, and think there is no medi-
cine like it. 1 cannot praise it too highly,
and bless the day that I learned of it."
Mrs. Judge J. F. Boyer, 1421 Sherman
Avenue, Evanston, Ill., wrtes that sev-
eral complications united in pulling her
down, and she thanks Peruna for new
life and strength.
Pe-ru-na Tabets.
Por two years Dr. Hartman and his
assistants have incessantly labored to
create Pernma in tablet form, and their
strenuous labors have just been crowned
with success. People who object to
liquid medicines can now secure Peruna
tablets. Each tablet is equivalent to one
average dose of Peruna.






jSore Thrat for Years.
Mrs. C. Dashel, 384 Irving Avenue, Chicago, Ill., Curator
Natural History Society, writes:
"I am glad to be able to recommend Peruna for chronic sore
throat. I had been troubled with sore throat for years, but
could find nothing to help me. I had an awful
gagging in the morning and was subject to
q dizzy spells. I could not draw a free breath
and life had no pleasure for me. My
throat waa dry and parched.

regarding his wife's case as fol-
"I thought it would be doing
but justice to your gxeat medicine
to tell you what it has donefor
my wife.
"Two years ago the doctor called
at our house, on an average, three

was so great that nothing but
morphine would give her relief.
"While on a visit to some friends

"Standing in the tub" is a terrible
form of punishment practiced in Chi-
na. This consists of a huge, vatlike
tub, with a hole in the lid, through
which the culprit's head protrudes. At
the bottom of the vat is a thick layer
of unslaked lime and seven bricks pil-
ed upon each other. As the man's
hands are tied behind his back, ie
can do absolutely nothing to eas- hri-
self in any way. He stands in agony
in this position all the day. He con-

And a little child shall lead them
Out of sorrow and despair;
Out of trouble and of grieving.
To the meadows bright and fair.
Yes, a bright-eyed lad or lassie,
With a merry, smiling face,
Comes to lead the weary parents
To the land of love and grace.

And a little child shall lead them,
To the land where blooms the rose;
To the perfume-laden gardens,
Where the light of laughter glows:
Where all life is fun and loving,
Yes, a child shall lead them there:
Where they'll loose the bonds of trou-
And they'll slip away from care.

And a little child shall lead them
To a life of pure delight;
Where the sweetest music's laughter
And thp sun shines ever bright:
VWhere all life is love and frolic.
Where all tears are quickly dried-
Yes. a little child shall lead them
To a land where joys abide.

And a little child shall lead them,
Out of quarrels and of strife:
Out of bitterness and envy.
To a calm and peaceful life.
Yes, a little child shall bless them
With a baby's merry arts,
Bringing comforts to their bosom
And a gladness to their hearts.

proposes to give. Send in the missing word and
take the prize. With every yearly subscription to
the SEMI-WEEKLY JOURNAL you are entitled
to two trials at the missing word. A sentence has
been selected from a well known and widely read
work of fiction. From this sentence a word has
been dropped, leaving a gap. This word is Eng.

any ordinary dictionary. Here is the sentence:

binds them to the lower earth. It
hampers them, binders them. and is
fatal to all spiritual joy or growth in
holiness. Many a young convert be-
gins his religious life with a doubting
and desponding spirit. He nurses his
fears in a morbid way, and mistakes
all this gruesomenesi for humility.
He is a chained bird from the skies.
Others are fettered by setting
sins, from which they have never cut
loose. They have never made a clean
break with the old sinful self, or with
the beggarly elements of this world:
they are hobbled with practices and
associates that they have never cut
loose from. They have probiabifly pass-i
ed from deathil unto life, yet they ap-j
pear very much as Lazarus would

Some really good people are clogedgd
by bodily ailment- dyspeptic stom-
ach or weak nerves, and they see but
little sunshine in their Christian ex-
perience. Bunyan has depicted sev-
eral specimens of these pilgrims who
hobble toward heaven on crutches,
until death unloosens them and lets
them go. Such Christians are to be
pitied more than blamed; they are
rather patients in Christ's hospital
than soldiers on his battlefields.
False doctrine, false views of sin
and of Christ are at the bottom of a
great deal of this spiritual debility.
Every error is the enslaver of the
soul. Truth makes us free indeed.
Martin Luther was a chained eagle in
ihe Erfurt Convent, until that heaven-
sent truth. "The just shall live by
faith." unloosed himni. Thomas C;,al-
mler's was another chained eagle, but
when the great doctrines of man's
guilt and Christ's redemption liberat-
'd himn, Ite soared uip in the oem' '.rean,
ihe king of Scotlanl!s gospeler.s.
John Wo\-ley never attained to a full
salvation until in that little London
prayer meeting his eye rested on
these words: "The spirit, of life in
Christ Jesus hath made me free from
the law of sin and death."
To ever,- member of our churches
who is dragging out a half-dead re-
ligion. the Holy Spirit cones with the
arousing call: "If ye be indeed risen
with Christ, seek those things which
are above!" Instead of sitting in the
gates of the tomb, cast away your
graveclotbes, and begin to live as
Christ's freemen and Christ's witness-
es. and the heirs of a magnificent in-
t eritance. Look higher: ILive higher:

Ex-Governor John W. Stewart, the
new senator from Vermont, is in h:4
eighty-third year. He is appointed to
suoceed Redfleld Proctor, and it is not
nppoaed that he will be a candidate

appointed him is a candidate for the

In the brief time that William J..
Bryan represented Florida in the Sen-
ate be became known and honored by
Men of both parties as a young man of
engaging personality, high ideals, fine
character and ability. His death is
a loss to his State and to the nation.

The United States department of ag-

But it 1n1tsth e ro nlmeni!,har,' that
Governor lroward has conlmitt ed
himself to the primary system. iHe
stands sponsor for it. and his alle-
giance to it requires himn to bie gov-

before assuming this responsibility.
I'nder the same process of reason-
ing. we might say that the conistiti-
tion guarantees to every qualified lc-
tor the right to vote without hamper-
ing him with any, restrictions what-
soever, yet in carrying out this coisti-
tutional privilege, if the average denm-
ocrat ignores and sets at defiance his
primary pledges, his action will de-
stroy absolutely and forever the pri-
mary system.
Pledged as he is to this system, can
Governor Broward ignore it and set
it at defiance without establishing a
dangerous precedent, and without
having his example followed by his
friends and admirers?
In a word and in short, does not the
governor's repeated examples along
this line absolve every democrat from
his primary pledges, and, if so, what's
the use of this great to do about the
primary-its great and glorious bless-
ings and achievements?
If the democrats of Florida, follow-
ing the example of Governor Brow-
ard, refuse to be governed by their
primary pledges in the general elec-
tion. Florida will become Kentucky-
There will be no other hope.


Immediately after President Roose-
velt sent his latest message to con-
gress. Hon. John Sharpe Williams,
the minority democratic leader in the
house, issued a statement denying the
attitude of the democratic party to-
ward the legislation proposeI by
President Roosevelt. The statement
describes what republican legislation
the democrats will support, what they
will oppose, and what concessions
they demand on the part of the ma-
jority as the price of refraining from
an organized filibuster throughout
the remainder of the session.
Mr. Williams opens his statement
by saying:

cent message are so immediately im-
portant to the interests of the entire

is so constructed that it cannot add perceptibly to the heat of
a room; the flame being directed up a retaining chimney to
the stove top where it is needed for cooking. You can
f=T see that a stove sending out heat in but one di-

Mr. Milton is a grandson of former
Gov. John Milton of Florida, and is 42
years old. He was born in Marianna
and is a successful banker and busi-
ness man. Mr. Milton's appointment
is for the unexpired term of the late
Senator Mallory. which had been fill-
ed by the appointment of Senator Bry-
an just three months ago.
When asked regarding his appoint-
ment Senator Milton said: "I am go-
ing to do my duty as : see it."

William Hall Milton, lawyer and
banker, was born March 2, 1864. and
educated in Marianna, Fla., and Au-
burn, Ala. He engaged in the mer-
cantile business in Marianna in ltl.
and took an active p1)art in the state
campaign of l1,9o. At the age of 24
he was elected a member of the house
of representatives of Floridla. and was
a prominent member of that body.
He was admitted to the bar in IS1f;.
and the same year engaged in the
banking businer;s in Marianna, in
which he still continues. He served
as clerk and treasurer of Marianna
from 1SS4 to 10-41. and was appointed
court commissioner by Judgeo McClel-
lan. He was elected a democratic
presidential elector in 1S92. In 1S92
he married Miss Sara S. Baker of
Greenwood. Fla.. the daughter of
.las. S. Baker, a member of the Florida
legislature, an(, the granddaughter of
.James L. G. Baker. a member of the
Florila secession convention. They
have had three children, Lucy Hall.
William Hall, Jr.. who died at the age
of four years, ai d Elizabeth Ferrell.
Mr. Milton was appointed IUnited,
States surveyor general of Florida by
President Clevelandl in 1894, and in
1097 resigned the position andi return-
ed to Marianna. where hlie restimed
his duties as the cashier of the bank
of W, J. Daniel & ('o. [n lS!s, with
an active opl)osing candidate in the
field, against his own wishes and over
his protest, he was nominated and
elected mayor of Marianna. This po-
sition he held two terms, declining a
third election. In 1900 he wa sa can-
didate before the democratic state
convention for governor of Florida.
and received for four days a flattering
vote and the loyal support of some of
the best and most distinguished citi-
zens of Florida.
Mr. Milton has always taken a
great interest in the politics of Flor-
ida, and has been a member of every
democratic state convention and of
most of the first district congression-
al conventions since 1886. He has
served two terms on the state demo-
cratic executive committee, and on
the committee for the first congres-
sional district. He was president ot
the board of managers of the state
reform school, located near Marianna.
He is also one of the leading busine s
men of Marianna. and takes an active
interest In promoting any movement
for the l)rosl)erity and welfare of his
town, county and state. He is a mem-
ber of the Knights of Pythias. Sors

We believe in small farms and thor-

We believe that soil loves to eat, as
well as its owner, and ought there-
fore to be liberally fed.
We believe in large crops, which
leave the land better than they found
it--making the farmer and the farm
both glad at once.
We believe in going to the bottom
of things, and therefore in deep plow-

with a subsoil plow.
We believe that every farm should
own a good farmer.
We believe that the best fertilizer
for any soil is a spirit of industry, en-
terprise and intelligence. Without
this, lime and gypsum, bones and
green manure, marl and guano, will
be of little use.
We believe in good fences, good
barns, good farmhouses, good stock,
good orchards, and children enough to
gather the fruit.
We believe In a clean kitchen, a
neat wife in it, a spinning wheel, a
clean cupboard, a clean dairy and a

whose plant is located near here.
The negroes were gathered in a
house occupied by A. Trice. one of
the negroes, enjoying a game of cards
and listening to music, which was be-
ing furnished by several of the com-
pany in turn. Suddenly there was a
loud report and the house, negroes
and everything in the house were
blown high into the air, the bodies of
the negroes being blown into bits and
the house being left a complete
wreck. The shock was felt all over
Floral City, and for several miles
around the report awakened many
The explosion occurred about 10
o'clock at night and none of the neigh-
bors can be found who saw any sus-
picious characters lurking about the
premises. It was shown after the
explosion that the dynamite had been
shoved under a side of the house and
touched off by means of a fuse, burnt
fragments of the fuse and charred bits
of the box being found at the point
where the explosion occurred.
Italians Suspected
While all positive evidence is lace-
ing, it is the general suspicion that
a number of Italian workmen, employ-
ed at the same mines as the victims
of the explosion, took this mnwans of
retaliating for insults and bad blood
which has existtd for some time at
the camps. Fist fights havy been fre-
quent. Negroes have been stoned by
the Italians and Italians by the no

and leave.
Jim went over with a shotgun and

One writer of note says: "Any ex-
tended investigation of the records of
our past shows that we are not retro-
grading but advancing morally, spir-
itually and physically." Former Vice-
President Wilson said, near the close
of his life: "After much study, with
a view to writing on the subject of
the comparative morality of recent
and earlier times, with reference to
the great social feasts, excess in
drinking and licentiousness, I am con-
vinced that the present shows to a
vast advantage.' Dr. Leonard Woods
long at the head of Andover Theolog-
ical Seminary, declared that in his
time there were, "among his personal
acquaintances, forty ministers who
were intemperate, wtth no special dis-
grace attached to that fact." A list
was made out at the same time of
one hundred and forty-eight notori-
ously drunken deacons in Massachu-
setts churches, forty-three of whom
became hopeless sots. In the matter
of sexual morality the records are
quite as bad. If there are more di-
vorces now, it must be remembered
that there are more recognized causes
for legal divorces now than then.
Formerly there was but one or poss-

ibly two such causes in our common-
wealths. It is doubtful whether there
are more now than there were run-
away wives and husbands in their ear-
lier days.
As to business corruption. Rufus
Choate declared, late in life, that the
improvement in the morals of trade

is so many people are willing to risk

the lives of their families when they
can secure perfect safety.
We have lived in Florida for many
years and we have never heard of a
disaster from floods or suffocation
from heat nor have we ever heard of
men. women and children freezing
to death from cold and in Florida we
have fewer diseases of a fatal nat ure
than any other state. Barring the
sick who comes here from other states
with one foot in the grave and the oth-
er almost, and die, within its borders,
Florida has a lower death rate than
any other state in the Union.
We suppose that one reason more
people do not come here to make their
permanent homes, where they can en-
joy such manifold advantages is due
to the erroneous reports that have
gone abroad that Florida is a veritable
bake-oven in summer. This idea
comes principally through a natural
supposition because of Florida's near-
ness to the equator, but there are
many who have had a similar exper-
ience to ours, and have found the heat
in northern states far more oppressive
in the summer than it is in Florida. In
fact, the Florida summer temperature
is several degrees lower than that of
other states and this is due to the fact
that the peninsular is narrow and the
breezes from the gulf and ocean keep
the air cool and pleasant, hence it is
rarely uncomfortable in the shade.
When this fact becomes thoroughly
rooted and grounded in the minds of
people of other states there will be
many who will seek homes in Florida.
and they will find equally as warm a
welcome as we extend to the tourists
who come and spend only a few short
weeks with us.-Clay County Times.

When o'er the green, undeluged earth

To watch thy sacred sign?

O'er mountains yet untrod,
Each mother held aloft her child

Tension of repose in his altitude that

His age. thirty-one, was of course,
well known, but he could easily pass
for a man of twenty-five. A recep-
tion was given him in the democratic
ante-chamber before he entered the
senate with his senior. Senator Talia-
ferro. He was assigned to a desk on
the back-fence of the senate, in line
with democratic leaders, like Senator
Tillman. He was very pale. his frock
coat was very new. and there was a
general interest among the gray-heads
to see the calmness and repose of the
"stripling senator." He kept his eye
on th.,- august presence of the vice
president, and looked neither to right
nor left at his fellow senators near
him. Senator Taliafe(rro. in a brief
speech, introduced the new senator.

It was a warm and pleasant episode
In the strenuous struggle of national
affairs. The spirit of youth, had put a
spell upon the senate, in the presence
of this dark-eyed, slender senator. It
is a time-honored custom that the

a silent one, so the natal powers of
this young man will not be tested till
next year, but if looks mean anything.
Senator Bryan impresses one as be-
ing a man of reserve force, and prob-
ably, under pressure, some fire.


Petitions are in circulation at Lex-

son to declare martial law in at least
a part of the lawless tobacco regions
and to request the president to send
United States troops to put an end to
night riding. The murder in Nicholas
county is the cause of the action. Gov-
ernor Willson. who is in Iouisville,,
said last night that only the legisla-
lure could declare martial law. and
that he did not belie-ve such action
would be necessary.

There is an ancient formula which
recommends the use of steeped ants in
wine for bodily troubles. Of course,
what was evolved was formic acid. a
substance which is being given atten-
tion today for its medicinal qualities.
Dr. P. Guigues, of the French faculty
of Beiruth. recently stated that the
same remedy is found in the official
Formulas of Germany and Switzerland.

ka. It is known, to'., that the Mexi-
cans use an infusion of ants in alco-
hol as an excitant. A nunmbetr of Ger-
man and French doctors, who have
studied the matter, declare that this
old remedy is of great valtie in many
maladies, including rheumniatism.
Formic acid augments muscular
strength and increases the power to
resist fatigue. Its properties are su-
perior to cola. coca and others. Dr.
Hofruth. a German physician, experi-
mented with this medicine, taking
from eight to ten drops of formic acid
