Rescued From the ERiver.
About 9 o'clock last night Lieutenant.
Jack Keefe, of the police force, was
standing at the corner of Ocean and Bay
streets, when he saw a man evidently
slightly under the influence of liquor,
coming down Bay street. When he
reached Ocean street he turned down to-
wards the river, walked out in the middle
of the street and then headed for a light
on the end of Colcord's wharf. It was
very dark, and one unfamiliar with the
locality could not tell that the street
ended as it does, As the man disappeared
from view, Captain Jack started after
him, but upon reaching the foot of the
street he saw two men in a boat pulling
at an object in the water. Captain Jack
saw that it was the man he had'just seen
pass, he was Jolding on to the bottom
step at the edge of the water and was al-
most exhausted. Captain Jack pulled
him out and as soon as he was able to
move took him to 'Bettelini's where he
was given proper attention, and put to
bed. The man gave his name 'as Wil-
liams, and said that he lived up the river
a few miles from the city. He liad come
to town to celebrate the Fourth and
walked overboard without knowing he
vas anywhere near the river. His sud-
den bath had the effect of so being him
up in short order. He lost his hat and
umbrella in the river.

the horses became frightened at! the ex-

thrown over the dashboard between the'

Hogan street and tried to run into the

telegraph pole and were stopped.
'Quite a crowd gathered pnrd were
much surprised to see Nelson crawl out

The clock moved along toward the hour

a new light. Hrnbegan to understand his
wife's reluctance to the plan. "
Then house and blackened his hoe,. i-.H pol-

much time as possible, and when the door-
bell rang hestarted guiltily, half expecting
a vigilance committee from-the Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
The cries had ceased, and when his wife
entered he was calmly reading the paper,
and there were only strangled sobs coming
at regular intervals from 'the sleeping in-
nocent to tell the tale. But she was a
woman of comprehension, and she knew
there had been a conflict.
Again that night a determined man re-
peated the contest of the morning-but it
was a brief one-and before he went to his
business the next morning he wrested a
solemn row from the mother that she
would repeat the experiment at the hour
for the nap.
The vanquished enemy of personal com-
fort gave one long, despairing uote of sur
render, and that was the last of it.
There is a great deal of sentimentality
wasted on small children by sysipathlitic
and foolish parents. That is the reason

why old maids and bachelors and childless
people really do know a great deal better
how to bring up a child than its parents
do.-New York Evenina Sui>.

Make the lDay of Independence a
Day for Pleasnt Rlemembrance.
Yesterday was a red letter day at Pablo.
People from the most distant parts of
the state collected to enjoy the celebra-
tion of Independence Day. Jacksonville
alone sent thousands. The clerks were
there en masse. Ladies from allover the
country promenaded the beach and
walks. The bathers, too, were in theit
element-the oldocean lashed and lashed
as tjoughlit also was celebrating, and it
didicelebrate,-the billows rolled heavier,
the water seemed more sparkling than
over before. -
The. pavilions were also'crowfed. Gay
dancers, heedless of the I-aces and the
sports on the beach, danced merrily to
the music of one of our city's best bands.
In front of the'ruins of the once grand'
Murray hall were gathered hundreds of
spectators .watching the interesting con-
tests and races on the hard sand beach.
Ever and anon a cannon cracker would
boom forth, carrying with it the feeling
that thrills the true American when he
hears the echo, however faint, ot the gun
that gave him liberty. .'Oo the cottage
along the beach "waved the sLtars and
stripes-emblemnatic of t he Uuinn.
These banners as the cn)utinual gusts
sported with their folds remtinded the

U') [u, pOpulhtion of the beia,.n. On the
spacious piazzas of the Ocean house conim-
fortable settees had been provided for
the visitor, and each bad its quota of
occupants. The refreshing breeze
from the sea fanned those who
sheltered n themselves beneath the
inviting roofof the main ipav-jlion. Here
many found acool retreat and Watched
btheshillingpanorama with delight. Th'-
'rowda that surged along the corridors
formed a never-ending piocession. Yet
scarce a single one paased a given place
more than ouce. New faces greeted the
watcher. Pablo yesterday was a grand
rendezvous for friends to meet and ex-
ciange the pleasantries of the occasion.
rFe bluff bordering on tho ocean was
Jotted with various colored parasols, be-
neath which couplessat and gazed on the
gla.ssy and unfathomed waters. The rac-

Always Dress for Dinner. -
Dressing for dinner or the evening mea4
whatever it is, has a decidedly moral effect,
Not that an elaborate toilet is necessary,
nor, in this country where, in most families
life is on a simple basis, is it requisite for .
'man to don his evening clothes. Butit
each member of the family is required t.
give ten or fifteen minutes' careful attenr-
tion to the toilet, the result will surely be
apparent in increased courtesy ationg the
members of the household; and ai'certahi
home dignity that is very desirable. "But,"
says the tired housemother, "all thisini.
volves extra expense." A little extra

a kind rarely met with-one vh.:,
testifies to an alleged state of facts one day
Sand unravels the entire web Ihe next-
sitsdown on and all orer himself, as it
were. The Professor was positive enough
in his original examination that Dr. De-
Pass had been guilty of the grossest irreg-
ularities in his admiiu-tration -of affairs
at the station, but a,. soon as he is put
under cross-fire by the party accused, he
incontinently back do'n from. his former
allegations and makes out the Director "a
marvelouspioper man." The reader of
such testimony.as that is moved to in-
'qnire '

If so sooqnBro. Neal was done for,
W, hat in thunder he begun for?
After charging the Director with the
grossest frauds, he avorse his belief inithe
Director integrity. After charging that
-the Diretor' received a regular'tee of $25,00
-for serving the Hambletonian, he declares
(under.moss examination) that he "don't
know.whether it'was $10 or $25." With
one hand -he paints Dr. DePass as black as
Satian;with the other he not only wipes off
the unseemly stain but covers him all over
with paintof celestial whiteness and adors
hia shoulders with cunning little knots on
angel feathers of the finest plumage. -No-
body would hang.adog on such evidence,
and if Prof. Neal bad testified before a,
judicial tribunal as heddid before the Trus-
tees, he could have been committed for
contempt of court. It was more than con-
tempt; it was an insult to the tribunal,
having the investigation in charge, and an
sffront to ordinary common sense.
The Professor admits that one. of the
gravest charges against the Director was
made while the witness was "hot." This

store," or in some other way favored the
complainant. It'has a tendency to make
the remainder of the state suspect that the
favored community thinks'it has a bo-
banza to be plucked for selfish purposes,
and beyond such a consideration care
nothing about the matter.
It is high time these bickerings cesse,
or we shatl never have ,an Experiment
Station or a State College either.
As to the charges 6iled against Director
DePass, they are more serious than we im-
agined any one would feel justified in urg-
ing. Look at his administration as lenient-
ly as possible, his best friends must ad-
ruit that, to say the least of it, a more
shackling system of book-keeping was
never tolerated anywhere. Private and
public accounts-private and public money
-private and public properly have be-
come zixed up in the utmost confusion-
Tbe laws of MEUM ETr rouj seem to have
been overlooked entirely. For the sake of
the station, of the good name of the state
and of Dr. DePass himself, we had hoped
to see him completely findicaied. If
.hu,-ahnlL- tnaity-- ne "Vtn,-tvaTrid "'h'e
should hit once enter upon the strioteet
system of'book-keeping known to the world
of business. The 'charges which yet re-
main unanswered, as set fourth by Messrs.
Brown and Rogers, are too serious to be-
ignored. Dr. DePass must clear them up
without relyingeven on the "reasonable
doubt". He has nearly two weeks to do so
Is before the Trustees sit again. Our best
wishes are with him, but, as we suggested
last week, neither the Democratic party nor
any other party cm afford to whitewash an
aecused party. Of late it has become ex-

crat,'itd can handle public tund., without
oubjectiig himself to suspicion. Mi-sssippi

Let justice be dciie through the heavens

Party barmonr is not necessarily-a good
thing an. :,C Of our contempories may
lie prcefiably reminded of this' on tle an:
niversarv of the day which saw our fathers
coome t.e-L'eher in singleness of purpose to
make a .new chapter in the political his-
Lory of the world. That harmony for evil
which has characterized the Republican
party'for twenty years is surely not good.
That harmony in the Democratic .party of
New York which supported Tweed was
not good. Quay's idea of harmony means
anything but good to-the people. So,! in
the opinion of THE STAINARD, does the
harm6ny proposed by the Times-Union
mean danger and disgrace to 'the Democ-
racy of Florida.
The cry of harmony from the Call men
comes too soon after the war cries at' the
banquet and the Leesburg speech by Mr.
Clarik. It is an offer of peaceon conditions
both disgraceful and dangerous. It cannot
be accepted on the basis proposed save at
the peril of all we have held dear-at.the

Democratic Harmony is only desirable
when it is securN on the line of democrat-.
ic principle and law. The democracy of
Florida is in deaiily danger if it can har-
monize on the ground occupied by the Call
men in'Tallahasse during the last session.
The Call men can secure real harmony
only by deserting that foreign soil-foreign:
to- them as well gs to. us-and acknowl-
edging again the fealty to democratic-law,
repudiated by them a short time ago. Safe-'
ty to the party and successs iaithe future
must .be secured by the repudiation 'of
those attacks on our leaders which have
scandalized the state-and this repudia-
tion of the means must be followed up I7y
the condemnation of the men.' '
There can be no middle ground. It is
only extremes which meet. Diem'.crati, or-
ganization is ofilypossiobl- on democratic
ground. Party efficiency can be secured
only by the enforcement "of party law.
Democracy is.a dead letter without the,
assertion of democratic principle.' If our
leaders can be attacked without reason as-
signed, let the tght be made outside our
ranks. No army can win if mumin ers
are countennnced.

take up no open position against us, hut
will try to divide and conquer. He can
be successfully resisted only by union and

cratic and neither can be secured without

law for its enforcement.
The cry for harmony is a speciotsi one
because harmony is a beautiful thing be-

in our midst is dedicated to an idol before

A Wonderful Hole in the Groauid DIu.cov-
ered In Kentucky.'
Judge J. W. Perry, the well-known
Kentucky politic an, tells a reporter ot
the Louisville .oniumercial-Gazette, tlhe
tollowingstory of a wonderful cave that
has just been found on his land in Mor-
gan county, Keutucky. It has only been
explored a short distance, but to judge
trotn the indicatiou-s it. must t) miles in
extent. The cave was Jound in a man-
ner worth relating. A party of fox him-
'ers nere pursuinga quarryv which their
hounds had sprung, when they suddenly
camnie upon a high ledge. At the muomueni
of arriving at this point Lthe baying of the
hounds wai dtisti,:tly audible, the bun-
ters not far behind. Suddenly the mnsic
of tbhe dogs ceased.
It did not die away by degrees, but
stopped suddenly, as if each loud-
mouthed aninial' had been struck by
some invisible force and forever quieted.
The hunters were at a IosL to account for
this phen'.:n'eion. While wondering
what beruame of the, dogs, a related bound
who hadt been unable to leel up with thbe
pach anme up, and, running below the
ledge, set up a howl of disappointment,
and the hunters climbed down to where
the d'-. nial stopped, only to seehitn
,lisapf.ear into the side of the, mountain
through large, irregular opening. 'Pro-'
curi ig torches of pine-knots the bunters
hastily followed tbe dog. They had not
g'ne niOre tbhani 100 feet until'they en-
tered a large c-hamber with a vaulted
dome. Every inch of space'on the walls:
and roof wascovered with minute crys-
tals that sparkled like millions ofdia-
niouds ahben the light, of thetorches
lashed opon thelm. -
The men hurried on, however, trying to
overtake their dogs, that'they could, now
-hear faintly baying within the bowels of
through beautitUl rooms and lofty arches
and failing to come upon the hounds, the
weary hunters had to retrace-their steps,
owing to 'their hastily improvided torches
being nearly burned out The dogs came
home the next day. A few days after its
discovery, Judge Perry visited the cave
and explored it a short distance He de-
scribes it as one of the most wonderful
caves he ever saw. In one of the rooms
there is a stone wall seventy yards long,
four feet high and four feet thick. It is
built of immense rock, of kind that is
not found in the cave nor anywhere near
it. The judge is at a loss to account for
the presence of this wall, especially as it
is cemented together with a cement as
strong as the rock itself. Many people
who have seen the cave and the artificial
walliareinclined to think this is the
famous Swift cave, where that worthy
mined and coined silver a hundred years
ago. If this should prove correct the
judge will soon be a millionaire, as
Swift's cave was known to be one of the
richest silver mines ever opened.

The toggery provided for the summer
youthi while bright and picturesque, in no
phase transcends the ,bounds of propriety
in color or design.
The wn:;bable waistcoats that, come in
many well ch.:-en designs will be worn
with the coats and trousers. They may be.
worn with the cheviot, but not the flannel
shirts. '
The silk band has been tried again with
success uilon the bell crowned Londonh
hats. An effort to carry thte velvet craze to
this:extent hasinot met with general ap
proval. '
The spats are now -worn to, match the
waistcoat by the swaggerest men in town.
Buff colored spats, and waistcoat is just
about the snappiest thing' the season has
yet divulged. -
It will be noticed that the new long top'
coats, while they have a plait down each
side seam, indicating a skirt effect, have
no buttons upon the Waist line of the back.
In place thereof there is a triangle done in
self color silk.

ionable world pretend to see in this revival
of the models of 1840 in men's wear a forth-

Robt. W. Simms has had remarkable
success in the upbuilding of his beer
trade in this market. It. bas groA u
to very great proportions. When it is re-
ihembered that the anniil sales of toe
great Anheuser Bush Brewing Assocla-
tlb4'"bave exceeded tliat of arny other
brewery, one cannot wonder tat they
stand to-day tne largest and most uni-
versally celebrated brewer)' in existence,
abd-as this increase is the case in all the
great markets of the world it proves that
the claims made by Adolphus Bnsch, Esq.,
'that he will manufacture ouly" the bL-at
nialt beverage that can be produced-from
the finest materials are founded on facts.
Coupled with thagrand commercial pres-
tige is the welJ known energy and activ-'
itv of their genial representative in Jack-
s6uville, and no man is wise enough to
predict the full limit of their phenome-
nal business growth. The new quarters

roudition, and to judge by the constant
increase in Lbusinaess at tuis market, as

bright commercial future is open to

The business here has been bandled iith
marked business ability, and its great
success is due uot only to the excellent
quality of the goods, but also to the genial
character and wholesome manhood of the

One of the institutions of which Jack-
sonvtilians are proud 1i the unexcelled
Clyde Line. No better service could pos-
sibly be given than they ofber. The ships
of the line are beyond praise. The line
has a way, too, of getting tbe nicest fel-
IDws iu the world to nil all their places.
How they can manage to do it always is
past conmprehenAion; but the urbanity,
ability and trustworthiness of Clyde Line
officials is universal acknowledged. In
fact, they are worthy employes of this
great and good line, and no higher praise
can be bestowed.

Last August Messrs. Clark & Corbett

'This is due in a great measure to the

There are very few people in Florida
who do not know the great furniture
house of W. W. Cleaveland. The man
and the business go together. For busi-
ness tact very few men surpass this go-
ahead merchant. He handles the im-
mense business under his supervision
with the ability of a lieutenant-general.
He has been successful, too. He under-
stands the furniture' trade about as well
as it can be learned. He knows how to
sell; he knows how to buy, and the mer-
chant possessing these qualities is a good
man to trade with. It is remarkable, too,
the great quantity cf goods that goes
through the large stores, Nos. 26 and 28,

A Darvous wo0an was on board a Maine
Central train the other day, on her way to
Auburn. At every station she jumped up
and asked, "Is this Auburnu?"' although
the newsboy had assured her often that
she should be notlfled when that place was
. At last the place was retrlee'l, the name
of the station was called, and, as it hap-
pened, the newsboy was near at hand.
"Do 1-do I-do I leave the cars here?"
inquired the anxious passenger.
"Yes, ma'air," answered the newsboy.
"unless you wish to take them with you."
The lady looked several volumes at him
and slammed the door as she went out.-

He Knew Hils Business.
She came into a Woodward avenue gro-

the lid of a sugar barrel with a crash.
"I got three pounds of lard here yester-
day," she said, "and paid cash for it at
credit prices." .
"'Yes, ma'tm," stuttered the clerk. "No,
ma'am; we always make a discount for
cash," he said in correction.
"Well, whatever you did," she went on,
"I want to say it was short half a pound,
and if it happens that way again I'll quit
buying here."
By this time the proprietor had come for
ward, and he took the matter in charge.
"Did you say half a pound short, mad-
am?" he politely Inquired.
"Of course, I'did; are you deaf?"
"No, madam, but I was'up on the third
floor, and the speaking tube from this floor
has got a wad of nice fresh butter fast in
it; butter is-going up, you know."'
"Is it?" she exclaimed. "Weli. give me

suave and portly proprietor, as he noted
down the order, "I am glad that it showed

Buffalo lawyer extricated herself from a
difficulty the otherday with tact. Sie had
jutlt recovered from a long illness, and sat

pennies. She decided that there were
twenty-nina.and her papa rave her another
to make the number thirty. Later her
nmo tier helped her to count them and they
found thirty-one. The father then entered
a protest and asked her to return his
penny, as she'had obtained it under false
pretenses. She looked up in doubt from
the little pile of pennies to her father and'
then said:

My Lady's Hair.
It is not dark like raven night;
Nor Is it fair;
Nor is it burnished with the light
: That bronzed the hair ^
Of those fair Saxon maids of old,
Of whom the minnesingers told
And sung with sweet inspired flow
So long agol
It hath a sweet, hypnotic smell
Of flowers rare,
That wove about my brain a spell--
This incensed suarel
I worshiped-but the charm for me
Has vanished, in a dream I see
My lady's hair coiled tenderly
S Upon a chair!

Had to Blame Something.
Not a great while ago one of Quitman's
popular disciples of Blackstone was de-
fending a negro charged with having
stolen a pair of shoes. When he took the
'case he did not know of the conclusive evi-
dence the prosecutor had. That individual
testified that he found his shoes on the
thief's feet. Of course he was convicted
in spite of th eloquent effort of the law-
yer to save him.
"I don't blame you, boss," said thefather
of the boy, addressing the lawyer; "I don't
blame de judge, an' I don't blame de jury,
but I does blame dat testimony."-Quit-

Of course it was a good joke. Hadn't
the boss said that he didn't want every-

thing brought to his attention he should
speak to his immediate superior and have
the matter come to him through the prop-
er channels?

"'A scandal in aristocratic circles that
has bee4.suppressed for several months
through fte strenuous exertions of the two
families interested came to the surface
yesterday, when it was discovered that the
son of Millionaire Colby, of the well known
fi-rn of Chamberlain & Colby, who had
forged his. father's name for nearly $100;000,
was legally married to.'the notorious va-
riety actress, Fanny Leslie, with whom he
is now said to be traveling in Europe. Of
course the forgeries were quietly settled
long since 'by the old gentleman, and the
matter would have been kept quiet but for
the accidental discovery of the, marriage by
an inquisitive reporter. A sad feature of
the affair is that the' young scapegoat has
been for a long time engaged to a daughter
of the senior partner, and the wedding day
was actually set some time since, the, post-
ponement being explained on the ground
that the young lady's failing health neces-
sitated a sudden return to Colorado
Springs, where she is at present. It is said
that Colby will disinherit' "-
The reading was interrupted at this
point by the appearance'of a servant with
a note for Mr. Bobbins, whose puzzled and
surprised look gave way gradually to a
genial smile as he perused the nervously
written missive, laid it down, took off his
glasses and answered his wife's look of in-

The moment the' chief buffoon of the
piece appeared on' the stage my neighbor
clappedhis handsuntil I thought hewould
split his'gloves-for he wore gloves-and
he chuckled, and I beard him whisper to
his companion': "There he is. He's im-
mense." And I saw that he was theowner
of a finely adjusted hair trigger laugh. For
the moment the comedian approached, a
jest, the very approach fired my neighbor's
gun of cachinnation. The completion of
the jest, with its accompaniment of facial
and bodily contortions,.inclted loud squeals
of joy and other manifestations of delir-
ious delight. But when, by accident,'a
witty line occurred, the person seemed
bored fand glum.
On examining the audience I found that
he was only one of many, although he was
a most remarkable specimen of his kind.
But what one word in our noble language
describes the kind? I cudgeled my brains
in vain; but after I had sent my boy to bed
I dropped into the club, and my accom-
plished young friend, the publisher, came
to my aid. "You must coin ,a word," he
said, "j after ,the manner of Louis Carroll
Nothing is simpler. A man guffaws when
he sees thq buffoon. Therefore' the man
himself is a guffoon." I think this word.
"guffoon" is worthy of adoption.-Taver"

splendidly. the solid welded angle frame

fire. I opened it on the combination and
found content, including books, papers
and money were preserved and nothing
r burned or even scorched. TIconsider the
