mitted to the bundesrath authorizing
the acceptance of the invitation to take
part m the Chicago fair. The bill pro-
vides for the appointment of an imperial
commissioner ,and the granting of a
credit for the effective organization of
the German department. The preamble
accompanying the bill refers to the active

many and the United States, and to the
fact that the invitation has already been
accepted by England, France and Spain.

idable proportions around Bochem. Most

who are opposed to a general strike.-

The emperor has ordered the suppres-

Tuesday, April 21st, T. D. French
died at his late residence on the Pen"
- insula, after a lingering illness. The

On Monday evening last John Seller
a young Swiss who has been. working
for the Okeechobee Company for some
time, borrowed a sailboat from Capt.
Pitts to go over to Steer Beach. He
made the' trip all right and stayed
there over night, starting on his return
Tuesday morning, with the wind a lit-
tle east of northeast and blowing quite
a gale. Having neglected to put down
the center-board, he was drifted about
by the wind and had to tack almost all
over to get anywhere. At one time he
was seen to run on Paradise Island
and had to eiet out in shallow water to
push his boat off. At another time he
was seen doing the same thing on the
west shore, near Butler's house. He
was seen tacking back and forth be-
tween the west side pf Paradise Island
and the mainland until after dinner
Tuesday, when he was lost sight of,
his friends supposing that he had giv-
en up his efforts and gone to Paradise
or Summerlin Islands to wait till the
gale was over. Not coming in in the
morning, parties started to look him
up, when they found the rudder to

Island, while coming to town with a

boat had filled and sunk in fourteen or

A Safe Remedy.
When a person is sick they wish more
than aught else a reitorattfn of health.
They are willing to take even nauseous
medicine in order to get well. With
many, however, a first consideration is
whether the medicine is perfectly safe.
Will it or will it not leave any eyil after-
effects? Now there is one remedy
kn oIwn to be certainly safe. It is a
S anical discovery, and it is called
,Hot~alhiB16od Balm. or B B B. It will
not harm the most delicate constitution,
nor will a discontinuance cause a crav-
ing for its further use. It is a sure anti-
dote for poison in the blood. The blood
becomes poisoned in various ways.: Con-
stipation, urinary difficulties and other
causes of effete matter remaining in the
system will cause blood impurity, or
blood poison, as many call it. Symp-
toms of bloc d poison should not be neg-
lected. B B B should be taken at once.
It will cure promptly, and it is not bad
to take, nor will it leave any evil after

The board of trustees of Foster Chape
have decided to give out the contract
for the painting of the exterior of the
church edifice, and probably touching
r up some of the interior work also.
General Manager J. H. Abbott, of the
East Coast- & Atlantic Railway, has
made a very liberal offer to our citizens
He has agreed to build that portion ol
the contemplated eilewalk on Bay
street, running from the E. C. & A. de
pot to the Cushing House, provided the
sidewalk is put down on the east side of
the street. The distance is about on
hundred yards and will relieve our citi
zens of about $30 or $40 of the work
This is a voluntary offer on the part ol
the railroad company and shows that
they have the welfare of our town at
heart. Such a policy will certainly be
more appreciated than the one usually
adopted by corporations to grind every
cent out of the public that they can. It
is well for the people to remember who
r their friends are.
This will make you smile. Oranges
in the Alexander grove on the lower
grounds were frozen last January, and
became worthless for shipping, as the
juice cells were destroyed and the juice
left the fruit. Lately these same oran
ges have been forming new cells again
and filling with juice. We have sam.
pled the oranges and testify that the
fruit that was worthless on these trees
a few weeks ago, is now juicy and pal-
atable, and -many others are ready to
bear us out in this statement.
A correspondent writing to the Cocos
Public Spirit strikes the keynote for
Oviedo when he says: "Oviedo has low-
er rates than any other point in South
Florida, and is the only locality where
the two great railway systems, Plant
and F. C. & P.,and the St. Johns steam-
ers meet in direct competition."
At a me ting of the stockholders ofl
the Oviedo, Lake Charm & Lake Jessup
Railway held last Saturday morning, it
was resolved to turn over the stock to
the Lake Jessup, Indian River & Atlan-
tic Co., provided certain provisions were
complied with, and these provisions Mr.
J. Emmett Brown, the general manager
of the latter company has agreed to.
It appears to be the common opinion
that Oviedo is on the eve of the most
prosperous wave that she has ever ex-
perienced. All signs point this way.
The building of the proposed new roads
is bound to make this an important cen-
ter, and already there is talk of a bank,
new hotels, and other enterprises that
are not quite ripe enough to be made

SIn assuming the local and business
management of the Herald, I must beg
the indulgence of its patrons for 6any
lack of local interest it may possess for
a short time. It will require better ac-
quaintance with the field of labor, and
no small a nount of skirmishing to
serve the readers as ably as has the re-
tiring lo-al. Material changes and im-
provements in the paper are contempla-
ted, and I trust that every friend of
Tavares will bear in mind that he can
help the place in no more effective man-
ner than by giving the Herald the finan-
cial and moral support needed to make
it, as ft should be, an atfle representa-
tive of the interests of Tavares and of
Lake county. W. S. SMITH.
Must, Have Been Insane.
NEW ORLEANS, April 30.-Reeves
Lewis, secretary of the New Orleans
Railroad, and one of the most popular
young men in town, committed suicide
by blowing out hii brains. He sent a
letter to the president of the company
Thursday announcing that he would
not go down to the office yesterday and
telling him what should be done. His
death was instantaneous. Lewis has
been in poor health for some two
months, suffering from insomnia.
When an examination was made ofl
his room the coroner was greatly sur-
prised to find a box containing $10,000
in one corner of it, which could not be
accounted for. The family of the sui-
cide could not imagine how he Itad so
much money, as he was supposed to be
In very moderate circumstances. The
money was discovered last night to be-
Ong to the city railroad. The presi'
dent of the company thinks that Lewi
took the money while temporarily in
sane, as he seems to have made no ef-
fort to misapply it.
The oJicbrs in pne of the exploded get-
rich-quick schemes have begun denying
money matters. It's very odd and a
seeming contradiction in anatomy, but
the only way to open some people's eyes
is to shut'them up.

THE REDEMPTION OF BONDS SUD-
Secretary Foster Preparing to Meet the
Enormous Hauls Following Tom Reed's
S million Dollar Congress. ,
WASHINGTON, Apr. 30.-Secretar, Fos-
ter to-day issued the following circular
discontinuing the redemption of 44 per
"With a view of reserving the residue
of 41 per cent.loan for adjustment within
Sthe fiscal year, which begins on July 1
t next public notice is hereby given that
8 the redemption of bonds of that loan will
be discontinued for the present, and the
f circular of October 9, 1890,.under which
Such redemptions have been made, is
"Due public notice will hereafter be
Given of the action of the department
s with respect to said 44 per cent bonds."
S The action taken to-day by Secretary
- Foster in discontinuing the redemption
r of the 41 per cent. bonds is believed to
Sbe the first of a series of measures in-
ended to put the treasury in a condi
tion to meet the heavy obligations which
are expected to fall due before congress
t These 4J per cent. bonds do not ma-
e ture until hext September, and there is
Really no obligation expressed or implied
upon the government to redeem them
e before that date; butin view of the large
s accumulation of money in the treasury
. during recent years the department had
f sought to use some of it by offering tc
S-purchase such bonds as might be offered
Sat fair prices in advance of their matur-
e ity. To-day $29,500 were redeemed, and
f the total amount of 4J per cent. bonds
e redeemed, or rather purchased, since last
- October, is $15,976,100. -
S THE AMOUNT OUTSTANDING,.
f On the first of the present month.$53,
t .854,250 of these last bonds were out-
t standing. The national banks hold over
$30,000,000 of them. If an emergency
Should arise there is small doubt in the
Mind of Secretary Foster that the banks
t would be entirely swilling to continue
their holding at a low rate of interest,
and they would be prompted to adopt
This course rather than oblige the treas-
r ury to call inthe money in the author-
S By purchasing 41 per cent. bonds un-
Sder its circular terms the treasury has
. saved the payment of much interest and
, it is entirely possible that the redemp-
Stion will begin again if the financial con-
) edition should warrant it. The terms of
3 to-day's circular itself seems to indicate
. such a purpose and expectation on the
part of the department and it may be
noticed that the reason assigned for the
discontinuance of the redemption by the
circular is with a view to reserving the
r residue of the loan for adjustmf nt with-r
Sin the fiscal year ending a little over
two months hence.
SMOT BY SOLDIERS.
A Queer Lynclhing out in Washington.
WALLA WALLA, W ASH., April 30.--D.
f J. Hunt, who slew Private Miller Wed-
nesday nighk, was lynched by soldiers
. from the garrison in the court house
yard with sixteen bullets, four lvhich
entered his head.
Early in the evening Sheriff- McFar.
land received intelligence that an at-
Stempt wouldbe made to lynch Hunt,
and ih company with Prosecuting At-
torney Plandord, repaired to the garri-
son and told Colonel Compton what they
feared and asked him to assist them.
This he promised to do by having check
rolls called after taps.
The sheriff returned and engaged an
extra number of guards, but all had not
arrived, when a crowd of probably fif-
ty soldiers appeared and demanded that
the officers open the doors of the jail.
When the demand was refused the sol-
diers began ork on the doors with ham-
mers and clisels. Finding this slow
work they threatened the use of dyna-
mite. Further resistance then being
useless the doors were opened, and twen
ty or thirty cocked revolvers were lev
eled at the heads of all inside and keys
- to the cells Were demanded. These were
given them, and when Hunt's cell was
a lown they quickly took him out to the
court house yard and shot him.
The excitement was intense and a
crowd of 2,000 people surged about the
street in front of the jail until after mid-
Immediately after the shooting the
soldiers went to their quarters and it will
be difficult to tell who were in the shoot-
ing, though many were not masked.
The soldiers actually took charge of
the town and would allow no one to pass
along the streets in the vicinity of the
jail. They compelled the merchants to
put out their lights.
HunI, who was a gambler, met Miller
last Wednesday night in a saloon. -The
two began drinking and soon became in-
volved in a quarrel. Hunt drew his re-
volver and fatally shot the soldier.
