In conlnion with Ithe entire people
of our state we have been profoundly
impressed with the disaster which has
Ibfallen the city of Jacksonville, and
our hearts are moved with sympathy
for the thousands made homeless and

the form of "applied christianity," by
sending them help at once, according
to our ability. Remember "he gives

LOCAL DISPENSARY BILL.


Two state dispensary hills have been
introduced in the Florida legislature,
but what progress they are making
we have not been able to ascertain.
For fear either of these bills will fall
of enactment, and believing it is easier
to pass local bills than general ones, a
number of the most prominent citi-
sens of Ocala of both sexes have in-
terested themselves in framing a local
dispensary bill and have forwarded
the same to Hon. W. K. Zewadski for
introduction.
The bill is fashioned somewhat after
the South Carolina law, puts the sale
of liquors under the control of a comn-
mission, prescribes that the sales shall
be in sealed packages and not less
than one pint sold to any one person
and the same not to be drunk on the
premises, that the dispensaries must
close at six o'clock, they are not to be
kept open on any election day, or the
day preceding and the day following
an election, nor are they to be open on
Sunday. One half of the revenue
derived from the sales is to go into
the school treasury.
With some modifications the bill
ought to become a very popular one.
Its promoters have made a thorough
canvass of the measure and say the
sentiment is very strong in its favor.
In some towns in Alabama and some
other states these loca! dispensary
laws are in operation, and the results
are said to be in every way satisfac-
tory, and are becoming more and more
popular wherever tried.
reth of Oeemees tis the UVlted
States.
In 1870 S3 per cent. of all marriages
nl the United States ended in divorce
oourts. In IMI the percentage had
risen to 4.8. In 1810 it was 6.2, and in
1900 it wes 6 per cent. In other
words, the pereentae- of divorces to
marriages la this country has more
than doubled since 18M.
The total number ef divorced in the
United States for a kiven year was
25,427. During the same year 20,111
divorces were granted In all the world
outside of the United States. There
was an exess of 8361 divorces in this
country as compared with the remain.
der of the world. Of foreign coun-
tries the smallest number of divorces
In the given year was In (Canada, where
only 12 were granted. Next to the
hlarest number was in France, with

close second with only one hundred

From a religious standpoint there


are about 63 divorces to every 100,000
'Catholks, while divorces for the same
total among Protestants are n28.
More than 40 per cent of all divor.
ces granted in the United States is on
the ground of desertion, aud divorces
are five times as frequent in the city
as ta the country districts.

sM--W"_'_*S SG AT lF.M

Florida's beautiful metropolis was
swept almost out of existence by a
cyclone of fire last Friday.
The rapidity with which the flames
spread and the amount of dasint"
done in so short a time best all records.
The fire originated from a spark
falling on the moss drying shed of
Cleveland's fiber factory at 12:30, p.
m., and In exactly seven, hours front
that time nearly the whole city were
only smoking embers.
Some idea of the intenseness of the
heat may be gathered from the fact
that the Gardner building, supposed
to have been fire-proof, and one of the
biggest buildings in the city, was just
eleven minutes in burning.
Smaller buildings were consumed
almost in the twinkling of an eye.
Trunks taken from the hotels and
placed in the middle of Hemming
park were dried to a powder without
ever igniting and snakes along the
river wharves were burned to death
before they could swim out into the
stream.
The fairest portion of the city was
laid waste.
The Windsor, St. James, Placide,
United States, Albemarle and other
hotels were destroyed; every church
in the city, save one, met a like fate,
and the convent and schools were all
consumed.
One hundred and forty blocks are


in ashes.
The loss is estimated to exceed fir-
teen millions; ten thousand people
are left homeless; many destitute, and
five were discovered to have perished
in the flames, among whom was Cot.
Harry D. Bonnetheau, one of the
most popular men in the city.
The people of the country did not
wait for an appeal for help before do-
nating money and supplies to relieve
immediate wants.
Governor Jennings at once wired
$W9,000 as the state's contribution,
and the mayors, aldermen and boards
of trade in many towns of the state
quickly followed the example, and
many individual subscriptions weie
wired to the proper authorities, Mr.
Flagler heading the list with $5,000 and
$5,000 more if necessary; New York
immediately started a $20,000 supply
train, Atlanta, Savannah, Tampa, and
other cities are doing likewise on a
smaller scale.
Orala sent In a contribution ap-
proeaching seven hundred dollars, and
this liberolity is only a fair index to
that shown in all parts of the coun-
try.
The brave hearted citizens of Jack.
sonville are not discouraged, and on
the old ruins will build a more sub-
stantial, beautiful and enduring city
than the one just sacrifleed to the god
of flans.
The Gardner building will be im-
mediately reerected and will be an
eight instead of a six story building
as before. The proprietors of the
Windsor will build a handsomer hotel
than the one destroyed. The Metrop-
olis will be housed in a four-story
building. The Hubbard, Baldwin,
and other buildings will be at once re-
built. Mr. C. 0. Livingston who lost
ten buildings, estimated to be worth
$80,000 without a cent of Insurance,
has already begun rebuilding, and his
example will set the pace and be fol-
lowed by others, and in a fortnight
Jacksonville will be the city of the
grtest.activity in the south.
God blews and prosper her brave
hearted people.


The New Breumd for Diveroe.
Our legislature now in session has
enacted a law, which has been ap-
proved by the governor, that four
years of incurable insanity shall be a
ground for divorce.
The law is based on common sense;
it is equitable, just and right, and
during the earlier stages of the pass-
age of the bill it gave almost univer-
sal satisfaction.
The living and the healthy have
rights, or should have under the law,
as well as the diseased and the dy-
ing.

Night and day, until the strength is

word Consumption1 begins to be whis-

story, familiar to the people of every
town and village.
There's another story which ought to

It would seem, from a ebrtattin
o int of view, tbat *u*e anu alUitlot
would have gained for Mr. Flagler ihe
spmrpatb and commieraflon of all
our people.
But not so. It was a case in which
political claptrap would play a part.
li ws aess i,-in which, by ,iisregard-
ing truth and trampling under foot
the finer sensibilities of the uoul, men
who for years had lain on the ocean i
bed of obscurity could rise to the sur-
face and blow like whales.
Every artifice that diabolical insen-
uity could suggest has been resorted
to by Cheap-John politicians to belit-
tie this act of the legislature and to
blacken Mr. Flagler's name and fame.
Pressure was brought to bear on the
governor to induce him to veto the
ltw, but fortunately for Florida the
governor knew the pigmies by whom
he was assailed and approved the
measure.
Those ten-cent-a-bunch politicians
exhibited their woeful ignorance of
the Bible, it9 teachings and phraseol-
ogy, by quoting in unison, "what God
hath joined together let no man put
asunder," and applying it to this law.
To ascribe to God Almighty all the
marriages that occur in the country is
a libel on the character of Jehovah
and is a pitiful exhibition of ignor-
ance of the teaching of Scripture.
But the capital stock in trade of
these defamers of private character
was, and is, that to make a physical
intfirmity a ground for divorce is sac-
religious and outrageous.
If these pious ( ?) souls are so shock.
ed because physical infirmity is a
ground for divorce, why have they
remained silent so long in regard to
the laws on this subject which have
been on our statute book for years?
The second ground for divorce as
laid down on our statute book is im-
potence, which is a physical infirm-
ity.
The fifth ground is a violent tem-
per, which is a mental infirmity.
The sixth ground is drutikenness,
which is a mental and physical dis-
ease.
These have been grounds of di-
vorce for years, but not a word has
been said against them, but these
one-horse politicians in their extreme
desire to injure a prominent citizen of
the state will seize on anything as a
pretext.
But their object is too apparent,
their knowledge of the Bible too
small and their vaporings too trans.
parent for anyone to be deceived
thereby -Jno. M. Caldwell in Lake
City Index.
Senator McLauran's friends must at
least admit that it is a queer mort of
democracy that meets with the hearty
indorsement and encouragement of a
republican administration.-Atlanta

MAY JO, 1901.


Flogging Convicts.
To the Editor of the Banner.
From a purely commercial view, it
may he that leasing the convicts is
the most practical way for the state
to deal with them.
If all the reports of cruelty on them
are untrue, and if the reports of the
state superintendent that they are
comfortably housed, fed. clothed and
reasonably worked are true, no doubt
that it the state worked them they
would be no better off.
Of course it cannot be expected that
people convicted of crime and sen-
tenced to imprisonment and labor
shall have a very easy time while
serving their term. Only i few com-
forts at most can they expect.
But this is not all that is involved
in the lease system.
For it is under many obligations of
duty to all persons whom it deprives
of liberty, and it ha. no moral right
tp transfer these duties and obligations
' to others for a price.
The state has no right to turn a
prisoner into a slave.
Flogging is not allowed for by any
law of Florida. Why does the board
permit it? It is beastly, brutal and
an institution of barbarism.
The creature who has to suffer a
flogging in a convict camp, ourht, be-
fore he is whipped, warn the brute
who has volunteered to omimit the
rlne to desist at the cost of his life,
iaMti if the warning is unheeded, then
if the victini survives the brutality,
lie ought not to rest until he hunts
d4own hi~s s-ourger, a:id in any manner
tio, t con venrent :and efTletive, slay I
him a thonu~l lie were a dog.

To the Members of the Christian
Endeavor Societies of Florida.


lit common with tihe entire people
of our state we have been profoundly
impressed with the disaster which has
befallen the city of Jacksonville, and
our hearts are moved with sympathy
for the thousands made homeless and
destitute. Let us also see that our
hands are moved-moved towards our
purses, and that our sympathy takes
the form of "applied christianity," by
sending them help at once, according
to our ability. Remember "he gives
doubly who gives promptly." Let
every C. E. society collect funds, or
goods, or both, and forward them as
soon as .posible. Remember the words
of the Master. "fit as much as ye have
done it unto the leLst of these, my
brethren, ye have don,- it unto me."

the same to Hon. W. K. Zewadeki

The bill is fashioned somewhat aft
the South Carolina law, puts the m

The Now Oreund for Divorce.
Our legislature now in session has
enacted a law, which has been ap-
proved by the governor, that four
years of incurable insanity shall be a
ground for divorce.
The law is based on common sense;
it is equitable, just and right, and
during the earlier stages of the pass-
age of the bill it gave almost univer-
sal satisfaction.
The living and the healthy have
rights, or should have under the law,
as well ae the diseased and the dy-

Florida's beautiful metropolis was
swept almost out of existence by a
cyclone of fire last Friday.
The rapidity with which the flamesT
spread and the amount of damiviav
done in so short a time beit all records.
The fire originated from a spark
falling on the moss drying shed of
Cleveland's fiber factory at 12:30, p.
m., and in exactly seven hours front
that time nearly the whole city were
only smoking embers.
Some idea of the intenseness of the
heat may be gathered from the fact
that the Gardner building, supposed
to have been fire-proof, and one of the
biggest buildings in the city, was just


Housewuwk Is Hard Work Wfth~ .


bed of obscurity could rise to the sur-
face and blow like whales.
Every artifice that diabolical ingen-
uity could suggest has been resorted
to by Cheap-John politicians to belit-
tle this act of the legislature and to
blacken Mr. Flagler's name and fame.
Pressure was brought to bear on the
governor to induce him to veto the
law, but fortunately for Florida the
governor knew the pigmies by whom
be was assailed and approved the
measure.
Those ten-cent-a-bunch politicians
exhibited their woeful ignorance of
the Bible, its teachings and phraseol.
ogy, ty quoting in unison, "what God
hath joined together let no man put
asunder," and applying it to this law.
To ascribe to God Almighty all the
marriages that occur in the country is
a libel on the character of Jehovah
and is a pitiful exhibition of ignor-
ance of the teaching of Scripture.
But the capital stock in trade of
these defamers of private character
was, and is, that to make a physical
infirmily a ground for divorce is sac-
religious and outrageous.
If these pious ( ?) souls are so shock.
ed because physical infirmity is a
ground for divorce, why have they
remained silent so long in regard to
the laws on this subject which have
been on our statute took for years?
The second ground for divorce as
laid down on our statute book is im-
potence, which is a physical infirm-

SProfesmor Josiah Varn. principal of
the Ocala school, appeared before the
board and explained the necessity of
having a thorouhb training school in
the eontv for six or eight weeks dur-
int the summer, a school not for the
jl.srpose of literary advancement or for
pa -n;.-!n the examinations, but a school
of -,t!hods and teachers already hol-1-

Mr. !t. II. Sanuders. chairman of the

before the lboardl and said he thought
that the board had the Dunnellon
school district charged with $100 more
than was legally due. That he and
th whenn $.5.t.i~ was spent on improving
Uto- school house last August. the
a;ird agreed to give $100 and charge
tw district with $115.68. As Mr. B. I.

Cured a Running Sore.


Wv Chek.es Lowss.
The nmeeanism of the leg and foot of
a chicken or other bird that roosts on a
limb is a marvel of design. It often
seems strange that a bird will sit on a
roost and sleep all night without fall
Ing off. but the explanation is perfectly
simple. The tendon of the leg of a bird
that roosts is so arranged that when
the leg is bent t the knee the claws
are bound to contract and thus hold
with a sort of death grip the limb
around which they are placed. Put a
chicken's feet on your wrist and then
make the bird sit down. and you will
have a practical illustration on your
skin that you will remember for some
time. By this singular arrangement,
seen only In such birds as roost, they
wm rest comfortably and never think
of holding on. for it is impossible for
them to let go till they stand up.-Pres-

It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their begin-

If you are sick you can make no mistake

and the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy is
soon realized. It stands the highest for its
wonderful cures of the most distressing cases
and is sold on its merits I.S .
by all druggists In fifty-
cent and one-dollar niz-
es. You may have a
sample bottle by mail Home c sawn ta.ea

out if you have kidney or bladder trouble.

The mechanism of the leg and foot of
a chicken or other bird that roosts on a
limb is a marvel of design. It often
seems strange that a bird will sit on a
oost and sleep all nigbt without fall
Ing off. but the explanation la perfectly
simple. The tendon Ujf the leg of a bird
that roosts is si arranged that when
the lef is l;.,nt at the knee the claws
are bound to contract and thus hold
with a sort of -a'lh g-rip the limb
around which they are placed. Put a
chicken's feet on your wrist and then
make the bird sit down. and you will
have a practical Illustration on your
skin that you will remember for some
time. By this singular arrangement.

Over-Work Weakens
Your Kidneys.
Utealthy Kmes ake Iu e Blgg.

All the blood in your body pauses through
your kidneys once eve three minutes.
Sekidneys are your
blood purifiers, they fMl-
ter out the waste or
impurities in the blood.
If they aresick or out
of order, they fail to do
their work.

bd du come frorn ez-
cessa of uric acid in the
-. blood, due to neglected


kdney trouble.
Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is
over-working in pumping thick, kidney-
poisoned blood through eins and arteries.
It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their begin-
ning in kidney trouble.
If you are sick you can make no mistake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild
and the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy is
soon realized. It stands the highest for its
wonderful cures of the most distressing cases
and is sold on its merits
by all druggists in fifty-
cent and one-dollar siz-
es. You may have a
sample bottle by mail nme oe swamp w ea

A iha:i can rarely enter into a woman's
tsufferings when they arc caused bly dis-

the character of thle suffering is graph-

ziate the force of terms for which he has
no equivalent in hi? experience. All
he can lo is to sympathize and suggest.
But when a woman hears the story of
a womanm's suffering every word has its
just weight with her. Even more, she
