differing widely in their conclusions; of the
extent of the deposits no accurate survey
has been or can be iade-the estimates of
the quantity of available rock ranging all
the way from five million to ftie hundred
millions of tons ; of the value of the rock in
the manufacture of commercial fertilizers
the best proof is the largely increasing de-
mnand for it from all parts of the world.
Few who are not directly concerned can
form any just idea of the extent to which
the business in phosphate mining is con-
ducted in this State. Since the discovery of
these deposits the total quantity of phosptiate
rock mined and shipped from South Caro-
lina up to the close of the past year was
niore than 2,290,000 tons, worth in round
figures abo-ul-15,0000. The product of
the mines from June-,TTS3, to January 31,
1884, was 309,888 tons. The giant strides
with which this industry is advancing may
be inferred from the statement that the
quanti ty ofrock nin edand shipped i increased
from 20,000 tons in 1868-70 to 355.000 tons
in 1883, and to 309,888 tons during the seven
months ending January 31, 1884.
The phosphate deposits, as is generally
known, underlie much of the land, and
form the bed of many of the rivers on our
coast. The rock underlying the rivers is
mined for the most part by wealthy com-
panies, which have erected extensive works
and invested a large amount of capital in the
business. The land rock is mined by com-
panies and individuals. The river rock is
mined with tongs and dredges, and the land
rock is excavated with pick and shovel. The
method of cleaning both kinds of the rock
for market is similar; but land mining and
river mining are processes so different in
detail that they can hardly be classed to-:
gether. There are about twenty-three com-
panies now engaged in phosphate mining.
Sixteen companies are at work in the rock
fields along the Ashley, on the Stono and
Edisto, on Rantowles Creek and on Chis-
holmn's Island. They have a capital of
$1,700,000, employ 3,000 hands, and produced
last year 271,000 tons of rock.--Charleston

the time of decease the age of about seventy-

spent in this State and in Tallahassee, al-
though we believe New York City was the
place of her birth and girlhood. She
abounded in good works and alms-giving.

no $te9.;o go into the history and merits of
the ca&s9 ae you are doubtless familiar with
tlhe points, thanks to the telegraph. It is a
sejeus trial, and clergymen throughout the
country will watch the progress and await
the decision with interest, since the verdict
will form a precedent in the determination
of the material rights of pastor and congre-
gation. There is one ( humorous feature
about the trial, however, which somehow
seems to have escaped the notice of the re-
porters of the daily papers, and that is tlhe
full representation of ladies of the congrega-
tion at thle sessions of the council, their in-
tense partizanship, and their readiness to
express their opinions audibly on every strep
taken. It is needless to say that there are
t factions, one firmly adhering to Dr.
N woman, the other devoted to the side of
Dr. Ranney, an M. D., who heads the oppo-
sition. The lawyers\in the case have a hard
task of it as they are subject to all sorts of
comments and criticism by the fair sex. A
prominent member of tile bar, who a few
years ago was engaged for the prosecution in
a celebrated religious case, told me that lie
would never more accept a retainer in sucih
a matter. By doing your best for your side
of the case you incur an amount of rancor
and vindictive hatred from the adherents'of
the opposite side which you would scarcely
believe it capable of. "Why, would you be-
lieve it," said he, "while I was trying that
case my own wife set herself against me..
She listened to the proceedings one day and,
woman-like, at once made up her mind as
to which side was wrong. As luck had it
she fixed upon the prosecution, and the cur-
tain lecture that I got that night for handling
the defendant without gloves, as I was bound
to do, would have been amusing had it not
been so annoying "

Alachuas.
Mr. S. Z. Murphy is now gathering Irish
potatoes. Less than eighty days since he
planted, but having stimulated them freely
with Home fertilizer they have grown rap-
idly and matured quickly.
Dr. A. T. Lee, one of the most successful
trJ tck-faruAers .i-th-e.State.-has-stip l quite.
a large number of boxes of green peas. The
Doctor is aufait in all matters pertaining to
vegetable growing, and but for the disastrous
drought during the past autumn his crops
and profits would have been immense.
The loss occasioned,1 by the burning-of the
steamer S. Lewi; is seriously felt by the
people of both Melrose and Waldo. We
trust that the enterprising citizens of these
towns will call a joint meeting and devise
some means by which another steamer ade-
quate to the demands of increasing business
may be placed in the canal and lakes at
once.
Captain Merriam plucked some oranges
from his grove last Sunday and presented to
us some for examination. After subjecting
them to the most critical test, we, in con-
nection with other gentlemen who are
skilled judges in such matters, pronounce
them as fine as any we ever tasted, and free
from the faintest trace of injury by the recent
cold. This proves the truth of Captain Mer-
riam's assertion that owing to the altitude
of his place or some other peculiarity of his
surroundings thle deposit of frost and the in-
jury to vegetation was so slight as to be
barely perceptible during this and preceding
winters. This is a strange truth, butis none
the less a truth fully proved.- Waldo Adver-
tiser.

Insurance Risks.
It is a matter of gratification to know that
the chemical fire engine and apparatus for
the Fire Department has arrived, as this Ias
an important bearing on the question of in-
surance in this city.
The Southeastern Tariff Association, an


organization of the State general and
special agents of all the old fire insurance
companies doing business in the South-
eastern States. met in Charleston recently to
consider the disastrous outlook presented by
the enormous destruction of property by
fire in 1883, and during the first two months
of 1884. The result of the conference was a
determination on the part of all the com-
panies to advance rates of fire insurance on
all hotel and mercantile risks in cities and
towns having no fire department or 'water
supply.
This advance they regard as necessary to
enable them to guarantee indemnity, and at
the same time they will decline to accept
more than threeLfourths the cash value as
insurable. These restrictions will affect
Fernandina only until the Fire Department
is in working order.

Business and pleasure are very
neatly blend& d in thi. ha ,ndsomely il-
lustrated and well printed pamphlet
of upwards of 200 pages, containing
an excellent map, and handsomely
bound in imitation alligator skin. The
route of travel from the North to
Florida is supposed to be the subject
of conversation with a pleasant party
of tourists, consisting of Judge Roland,
a man of culture and wealth, his
daughter Elsie, a beauty and an heiress,
and her two susceptible cousins, Roland
and Herbert Revere. Of course such
a party must have had ,an interesting
tour doing the various Southern cities,
but the chief interest ci:lrtering on
Florida, with a thread of 'sove-making
giving piquancy to their movements.
The book gives much useful inform-
ation, and is a clever *ha;nd-book of
travel. The description; of places,
scenery, etc., are gracefully written,
and an excellent literary ta;tn prevades
the whole. ,
We have no doubt .it will Ielyp many

It would be interesting to know how
many voyages for life have originated
by a trip to Florida.
We must, however, in our capacity
of historical critic, except to the state-
ment made on page 78 in which the
writer seizes upon DeSoto, our great
new par "nolie,', and brings him due
east from Tanipa to' Fort. Gatlin en
route to Cape Canaveral.
Narvaez landed at or near Tampa
Bay, and marching parallel with the
west .coast into middlezFlobrida em-
barked at Anti, near the. i*mouth of the
Ocklokonee, in Liberty county, near
St. Marks.
DoSoto landed undoubtedly in
Tampa Bay and directing' his vessels
to pass along the coast within com-
municating distance, marched north-
ward, going certainly no farther east-
ward than Ocala and thence into
Middle Florida and thence into Geor-
gia, Alabama, etc., to the Mississippi.
There is absolutely, so far as we know,
no foundation either in history or tra-
dition for a route of either Narvaez or
DeSoto to Fort Gatlin, ;or that di-
rection. We therefore call attention
to the error so that future writers may'
not involve the authority of this clever
book for an historical iniac.,-ura,-..y. The
writer of this book, we believe, is now
the able editor of the Florida HeralMd,

THE WEALTH OF THE SOUTH CAR-
OLINA PHIOSPHA TE DEPOSITS.
The story of the development of the Caro-
lina phosphate beds is something altogether
without parallel in thle industrial history of
the South. Thlie value of the rock as a basis


for the manufacture of commercial fertilizers
was discovered in 1866. Two years later the
first cargo of rock was shipped' from the
State. .It had been mined in-the n fst primi-
tive way, and was cleaned f._i, shipment by
colored laborers, who washed ouk.t the dirt
with stiff wooden broorns, until. 300 tons
were finally ready for market. ,Northern
capitalists were quick to recognize the vast
importance of the discoveries, a,;'l readily
invested their money in the development of
an industry which has revoluti..-iiiz.-.i the
business interests of lower (',i,. ii1 .,, en- }
hanced the value of property, infused newI
life into our people, and which furnishes
the Imeans of subsistence to thousands of
sturdy workingmen. Of the (,i.ini of the

THE WINTER RES TS OF FLOR-


NEIW YORK GOSSIP.
ST. PATRICK'S DAY-THE GAMBLING CLUBS-
HOW THEY ARE FORMED AND CONDUOCf.D-
THE NEWMAN TRIAL, ETC.
To the Editor of the Mirror :
Nkw YORK, March 15, 1884.
St. Putrick's Day is at our doors, and yet
one scarcely hears of it. Thle bustle of
preparation which characterized the weeks
preceding thle festal lday of Ireland's patron
saint in former years is wanting entirely.
It can scarcely be that lie is forgotten, for ;f
there is anything that the Irishman honors
it is the memory of St. Patrick. The St.
Patrick's Society, composed of the cream of
Irish-Americans, will give its annual dinner,
the temperance societies will parade, and tlhe
flag of Erin will wave from tlie flagstaff of
the City Hall, but outside of that there will
be nothing of any account.
No public gambling house of any account
is open," say the police, and very truly, but
for all that gambling goes on just as before,
and the battle with the tiger goes on even
more fiercely than before. It is in tlie so-
called clubs where the contests now go on.
These institutions are modelled after the
London and Paris clubs about which tihe
cable for the past few weeks has recorded so
many scandals. Some gambler with money
lires a house, gets a few semi-respectable
men to meet and ostensibly form themselves
into a society-generally a literary society.
This concern is then incorporated, officers
are elected, committees appointed, and the
trap is ready. Admission to these affairs is
nominally through introduction by a mem-
ber, but neither the doorkeeper nor the
management are ever over-particular. A
well-filled purse and a disposition to blow
it in freely are the best passports. The
members of such literary societies are termed
students, not an inappropriate name. The
games played are generally baccarat and
poker. Baccarat is the favorite at present,
and the sums won and lost of a night's ses-
sion of the "school" would surprise many
a one. These clubs are conducted very
quietly, and their existence would hardly
ever become known, save to those who want
to know, were it not that some one now
and then cannot meet hs obligations, or d.e-
fERUTs fin igd busieiss.l" The defalcations'~of
young "Futlgetron, a clerk employed by the
Manhattan hearh Rillway Company, have
called public attention to-the existence of
these clubs just at the present imomi ent. He
over-issued certificates of the stock bt'f e
company to the extent of $20,000, and as he
was one of the most active of the wrestlers
at a club called the London, it is easy to see
where a good deal of the money went.
Moreover, lie speculated in Wall street, and
between the two he probably came to grief.
He has disappeared now, and will very likely,
if he is in any way able, offer a compromise.
The secretary" of the London Club says
that the talk'about Fullerton having lost
money there is all bosh, and declares that
he must be "ahead of the game" at least
$3,000. But of course, we may of may not
take the worthy secretary's word for that.
Seven runaway boys were arraigned in a
police court the other day. They had all
come from Pennsylvania, and were armed
with pistols and ,knives, and they were
bound for the West, there to wreak destruc-
tion among the savages. Tlie following even-
ing a lad of fourteen was captured running
amuck through thle Biw'ery, firing his pistol
in the air like a Texan cowboy, and shout-
ing at the top of his voice "I'm Butts, the
Boy Detective." The police took him to
the station house,;where it was found that
the boy was hopelessly insane. It was read-
ing the flash, sensational literature of the
day that brought these youngsters to this
pass. The age of the dime novel is past,
but the era of the five-cent weekly has come
and its influence is even more disastrous on
the crude, unformed young mind. The prof-
it of (e proprietors of these wretched sheets


is enormous. The combined circulation of
tFe leading ones aggregates over a million
and a half. The society for the prevention
of brime has done a good thing in suppress-
ing ,indecent literature. More attention
should be paid to these sensational story pa-
pers which make heroes of criminals, and
invest vice and crime with a cheap glamour
that dazzles the average boy reader, inflames
his imagination, and encourages him to em-
ulate the deeds of the leading characters in
the story. I understand that the society is
now at work preparing a bill which will be
laid before the Legislature in a measure cur-
tailing the* influence of those papers by es-
tablishing a sort of censorship. Everybody
who has children cannot but hope that if
such a bill is introduced, and it can be, so
framed that it is constitutional, that it will
speedily become a law.
For religious people the sensation of the
week hias been the session of the council at
the MAadison Avenue Congregational Church
to.decide whether the pastor, Rev. Dr. New-
man, has been faithful to his trust. It is of

FITZ JOHN PORTER VINDICATED-=CONGRESSMAN':
TOWNSHEND CENSURES THE REPUBLICANS.
To the Editor of the Mirror :


WASHINGTON,.D- C.', March 15.
It had been noised abroad:that, at the time
designated for taking u.p the Fitz John Por-
ter bill, in the Senate on Wednesday, Sena-
tor Logan would make another annually
speech in opposition. Spectators, largely-
composed of society ladies, filled' every seat'
in the gallery except part of thle space up-
holstered in blue, which is dedicated to-
diplomatic dignity. Many friends of Sena-
tor Logan and his family were present. But
those who came to hear the swarthy, fat,.
ungrammatical Illinois orator went away
disappointed. He remained silent, The
Republican Senator from New-Jersey, wl)o,
has charge of the bill, pleaded for Porter's-
vindication, and was followed by Senator
Wilson, of Iowa, who opposed the-bill. On
Thursday the new Nebraska Senator, Mr.
Manderson, had the floor for the Porter bill.
hour, and made his debut in an argument:
against General Porter's claims.. On Thurs-
day the Porter bill passed the Senate. The-
Senate in executive session ratified the com-
mercial treaty with Mexico, and it was a
notable coincidence that it was done almost,,s
simultaneously with the completion of the
railroad which brings the Mexican ciapit;l
into communication with the great trade-
centres of the United States.
The tariff issue has been formally made
up by the introduction of the Morrison bill,
and the presentation of the majority at; ni
minority reports. The former explains that.
the measure is expected to relieve the people.
of unnecessary taxation by decreasing the
revenues $31,000,000. The minority dissent,
from these views, and claim that the tariff
legislation of last winter placed the rates as;
low as is consistent with a due regard for
the protection of the manufacturer and the.
welfare of the laboring classes.
During the consideration of the post-office
appropriation bill, which is now pending ina
the House of Representatives,.Congressmam
Townshend, of Illinois, gave the Republicans.
soi-nc-efl'Fic-ti -^thr -t'-l--t tIa-rA-i" -y coi.l .rr -- --
return. He was aroused to war by the re-
mark of Mr. Skinner, that the Appropriatio'a
Committee was parsimonious and niggardly,.
and that the provisions of the bill woulil
cripple the efficiency of the mail service.:
Mr. Townshend had alluded to inadeqluiate-
appropriations made by the last Republican
Congress, whereupon Mr. Horr, of Michigan,
admonished the Democrats not to imitate
the blunders, but the virtues and beauties of"
the Republican party. Mr.Townshend.said
that no political organization ever existed.
in any civilized country that had a record
reeking with more corruption than the Re-
publican party has made in the last fifteens
years. No party ever was so utterly destitute-
of political virtues, so unfaithful to public
trusts, so prolific in false pretense and.
hypocrisy. Here Mr. Belford arose to in--
terrupt the orator, but the latter requested
Athe gentlemen from Colorado to ,contain
himself, and, continuing his attack, said no,
American citizen could read the rec-ord of
the Republican party without c:riemsonin g
with shame and humiliation, for his coun.try.
He cited Chase, Sumner,, Seward, Andrew
Johnson, Lyman Trumbhill, and others as
brave leaders, who hlad lead the party to,
victory, and who, when it was converted
into a spoils-hunting clique, abandoned it
and affiliated with the Democratic party,
the only political organization that' had
patriotic aims, and sought to administer the-
Government in the interests of the people..
IHe alluded to the thieving star-routet
contractors as one of the saddest episodes
of any mal-administration; to the Credit,
Mobilier bond, the post-trader plunderers,
the whisky ring, as well as many other raidu-
on the Treasury; to the crimes afthat party
against the sacred rights of sufflrage ; its de-
bauching of the ballot-box, and its lever-
to-be-pardoned sin of depriving the nations
of its rightfully-elected President, by fraud,
perjury and forgery. He closed by -l.ing :.


" With such a damning record ,the 1.i' iy
prates of its virtues.''
The Senate has been talking about estab-
lishing a Bureau of Labor Statistics, and has
also given some attention to the pleuro-
pneumonia bill, but without result in either
case. It must not be supposed that the for-
eign grievances of the American hog have
been lost sight of, because he has not beers
so prominently before the public of late-
His demands are still a subject for earnest
deliberation in the Senate Committee onr
Foreign Relations.
Although the friends of the bonded whisky
bill were snubbed early in the week in their
attempt to get the measure before the House,
and passed, they were not effectually dis-
couraged, and will make another attempt as
soon as the post-office appropriation bill goes
through.

In an hour's time-to Ernest's astonisIh-
ment-the 'messenger returned with a reply.
"The lady was just going out, sir, wie I

took the letter from me herself., She didn't
appear to know your handwriting, anLd she
asked me who I came from. As soon as I
told her I was ordered to wait.",
Ernest opened the letter.
Dear Mr. Lismore : One of us must speak
out, and your letter of apology forces me to
be that one. If you are really so proud ind
so distrustful as you seem to be, I stall
offend you. If not, I shall prove myself to
be your friend.
Your excuse is pressure of business.'
The truth, as I liave good reason to believe,
is'want of mIoney." I heard a stranger at
that public meeting, say that you were
seriously embarrassed by some failure in the
city.
Let me tell you what my own pecuniary
position is in two words. I am the childless
widow of a rich man-''
Ernest paused. His anticipated discovery
of Mrs. Callendar's "charming daughter"
was in his mind for the moment. "That
little romance must return to the world of
dreams," le thought-and went on with the
letter.
"After what I owe to you I don't regard it
as repaying an obligation-I consider myself
as merely performing a duty when I offer to
assist you by a loan of money.
Wait a little before you throw my. letter
into the waste-paper basket.

you are on the brink of ruin, that misfor-
tune will plead my excuse-and your ex-

In any case, I rely on the sympathy and for-

"After what I have now written, there :is

BEYOND THESE CHILLING WINDS.

.'Beyond these chlilling winds and gloomy
skies, .
Beyond death's solemn portal,
'Tlhere Is a land where beauty never dies,
And love beeomnes immortal.
.A land whose light is never dimmed by
shade,
Whose fields are ever vernal,
Where nothing beautiful can ever fade,
But bloom for aye, eternal.
We may not know how sweet the balmy air,
How bright and fair its flowers;
We may not hear the songs that echo there,
Through those enchanted bowers.
That city's shining towers we may not see
IWith our dim earthly vision,
For Death, the silent warden, keeps the:key
That opens those gates elysian.
:But sometimes when down the western
sky
The fiery sunset lingers,
Its golden gates swing inward noiselessly,
Unlocked by silent t fingers.
And while they stand a moment half ajar,
Gleams from the inner glory
Stream brightly through the azure vault
afar,
And half reveal thle story.
Oh, land unknown Oh, land of love divine I
Father all-wise, eternal,
Guide, guide these wandering feet of mine
Into those pastures vernal!

SHE LOVES AND LIES.

"Late in the autumn, not many years since,
sa public meeting was held at the Mansion
House, London, under the direction of the
Moid Mayor.
The list of gentlemen invited to address
-the audience had been chosen with two ob-
jects in view. Speakers of celebrity, who
would rouse public enthusiasm, were sup-
,ported by speakers connected with com-
merce, Who would be practically useful in
explaining the purpose for which the meet-
;ing was convened.' Money wisely spent in
.advertising had produced the customary re-
;sult-every seat was occupied before tile
prodeedings began.
Among the late arrivals, who had no
-choice but to stand or leave thle hall, were
two ladies. One of them at once decided on
leaving the hall. "I shall go back to the
carrying," she said, "and wait for you at the
door." Her friend answered, "I shan't keep
you long. He is advertised to support the
"secon-(1r-'esoltfTn. I want to see him-and
that, is all." '
An elderly gentleman eated'at thie end
of a bench, .rose and offered ]iis place to the
lady who-remiained. She hesitated to take
-.advantage of his kindness until he'renni'nd'ed
..aer that he had' heard what, she said'to thier
.frie i d: Before the third resolution was pro-
posed Iiis seat'would be at his own- 'disposal

"*;- '' interest in Mr. Lismore, that thIe curiosityvof
,her neighbors was aroused. Had lie any-
*thing to say in which a la,_ly (,evidently ra
stranger to himj wax personally interested^?
There was nothing in the ad:ldress thiat he
..delivered which apealed' t,; the enthqsiasrm
., of women. He was unIdoulbtedly a hand-
.;some man, whose appearance proclaied:


him to, be in the prime ofrlife-mnkidway,
perhapsap, between thirty and lf-rty years of
,..age. But whyli a lady slhouhld persist in keep-
-iOng an opera glass fixed on him all' through
.his speech was a question which found the
general ingenuity at a lo-s f,r a reply.
Having returned the g'lacswith an apology,

-on the'scoreofrisk. HIe wanted an iiivante
of 20,000. secured on i. homneward-boitjid
ship and cargo. But thle vessel was not in-
sured; and, at tiihat Storm season(I, shte v s
already more than a month overdue.. COultld
grateful colleagues be blamed if they 'forgot
their obligations when they were nslked "to
offer pecuniary help to a nmercliat linthfis
situation ? Ernest returned to his office witlh-
out money and without credit. ": '''
A man threatened by ruin is in. nio state,
of mind to, keep an engagement at a' lady's
tea-table. Ernest sent a letter of apology, to:
Mrs. Callendar, alleging extreme pressure .f
business as tile excuse for breaking his en-
gagement.
"Am I to wait for an answer, sir?" tlhe
messenger asked. !
No ; you are merely to leave tlhe letter."

- .He was ashamed of hiS hesitation, and he .
made amends for it. -.
"Do you tihoroulghly understand me ?" he
asked, when tlhe whole truth had been laid
before her without reserve. '
Slhe summed up the result in lier own
words.
"If your overdue ship'returns safely
,within a month of this time, you can bor-
row the money you want without difficulty.
If the ship is lost, you have no alternative
(when the end of the mrnonth comes) but to
accept a loan from me or to suspend pay-
ment. Is that the hard truth ?"
It is."
4 And thle sum you require is-twenty
thousand pounds ?" '
"Yes." : '
I have twenty times as nmuch money as
that, Mr. Lismniore, at my sole dispdosai-- n
one condition." -
"The condition alluded to in your letter ?"'
'Yes." '
"Does the fulfillment of the condition de-
pend in some way on any decision of:mine?"
"It depends entirely on you.''
That answer closed his lips.
With a composed manner and a steady
hand she poured herself out a cup of tea ."
"I conceal it from you," she said,' but I
want confidence. Here (she pointed to the
cup) is the friend of women, richi or poor.:
when they are in trouble. 'What I have
now, to say obliges me to spedk 'in praise of
myself. I don't like it--let me get it over -
as soon as I can. My husband was very
fond of me ; hlie had tlie n-iost absolute con-
fidenceig___inmdjiscretion, and in my sense otf
duty to hinm and to mys-lf. Hishl. t words
before hlie died were words that thanked me
for making thle happiness of hiiis-life. .As"-
soon as I had in somed:le"gree I'ree,'red, after "
theaffliction that had fallen on'1 me, his
lawyer andexecutor produced,'a copy of his
will and said there were two clauses in. it
which miy husband had expri''sled a wish
that I should read. It is neelelle'. to say
that I obeyed."

She held out her hand. Mr. LisnAre took
it in sileribe #irdpressed .it warmly.
You have rB. donie with me yet," shie
resumed with a snile. Do you remember
what I said of iIMerrand when I first came
inl ?"
"i You said it Waian errand of gratitude."
"Something moje than the gratitude
which only says, 'Thank you,' she added.
"Before I explain myself, however, I wAnt:
to know what you have been doing, and
how it was that my inquiries failed to trace
you after that terrible night."
The appearance of depression which Mrs.
Callendar hiad noticed at the.public meeting
showed itself again in Mr. Lismore's face.
He'sighed as lie answered he',."
'' My story has one merit.", he said; it is
soon told. I cannot wonder 0Uiat you failed
to discover me. In the first place, I was not
captain of my ship at that time ; I was only
mate. In tile second place,T inherited some
money, and ceased to lead a sailor's life in
less than a year frm tire night of the-fire.
You will now. i derstand what obstacles
were in thle way'of your tracing me. With
my little capital I started successfully in
business as a.- strp-owner. At the time I
naturally congratulated myself onil my good
fortune. We little know, Mrs. Callendar,
what the future has in store for us."
He stopped. His handsome features hard-
ened-as if he was suffering (and concealing)
pain. Before. it \vas possible to speak to
him there was a knock at tlihe door. An-
other visitor without an appointment had
called; the clerk appeared again with a card
and a message.
The gentlemen begs you will see him,
sir. He hatssoni-Tething to tell you which is
too important to be delayedd"
Hearing thle message, Mrs. Callendar rose
immediately.
"It is enough for to-day that we under-
stand ea:-li other,'' she said. Have you an
engagement to-irorrow after thle hours of
business.?
None."
She pointed to her crd on thle writing
table. "Will you come to me to-morrow
evening at that address? I amn like the gen-
tlemnian who ]ias just called ; I too have my
reason for wishing to see you."
He gladly accepted the invitation. Mrs.
Callendar stopped himn as he opened the door
for her.'
Shall I offend you," slie said, if I ask a
strange question before I go ? I have a better
motive, mined, than mere curiosity. Are you
married?" \
"No." -

She he.-itatl.,. Mr. Lismore tried to give
her confidence. Pray don't stand on cere-

can ask me need be ,rofa,'.,l by an apology."
Thus enc'o'uraged she ventured to proceed :
"You may beengaged to be married," she
'.ii-'_^'t He found it il,,,-,ilble to conceal his sur-
prise. But ,it, I-',\\-,:rel without hesitation :
There is noisuch bright prospect.in nimy
life," he.said,; r' I am not even in love."
Slihe left 1-im y._ithl a little sigh.'It sounded

Are you going to pay Mr. Lismore a visit?"''
""'" I Am going to think about it."

I.
The next day a clerk entered Mr. Lis-
more's private room at the office and pre-
sented a visiting card. Mrs. Callendar hiad
reflected and had arrived at a decision. Un-
derneath lier name shie had written these
explanatory words: On important busi-
ness."
Does she look as if shie wanted money?"
Mr. Lismore inquired.
"Oh, dear, no! Slhe comnies in her car-
riage."
Is she'young or old ?"
t Old..sir."
To Mr. Lismore-conscious of the disas-
trous influence occasionally exercised over
busy men by youth and beanty--this was a
recommendation in itself. He said : "Show
her in."
Observing the lady, as shie approached
himni, with the momentary curiosity of a
stranger, he noticed that she still preserved
the remains of beauty. She had also escaped
thle misfortune, common to persons at lier
time of life, of becoming too fat. Even to a
mnian's eye lier dressmaker appeared to have
made thle most of that favorable circum-
stance. Her figure had its defects concealed
and its remaining merits set off to advantage.
At thle same time shie evidently hieltd herself
above the common deceptions by which
some women seek to conceal their age. Slhe
wore her own gray hair, and lier complexion
bore the test of daylight. On entering the
room slie made her apologies with some enim-
barrassment. Being the embarrassment of
a stranger (and. not of a youtthful stranger),
it failed to impress Mr. Lismore favorably.
I am afraid I have chosen an incon-
venient time for my visit," slhe began.
I am, at your service," lie answered a
little stiffly; "especially if you will be so
kind as to mention yonr business with me
in few words."
Slie was a woman of some spirit, and that
reply roused her. I will mention it in one
word," she said smartly. "My business is
--gratitude."
He was completely at a loss to understand
what shie meant, and he said so plainly.
Instead of explaining herself she put a ques-
tion.
Do you remember the night of the 11th
of March. between five and six years since?"
He considered for a moment. "No,',' he
said, "I don't remember it. Excuse me,
Mrs. Callendar, I have affairs of my own to
attend to, which causes me some anxie'ty--"
Le me assist your memory, Mr. Lismore,
and I will leave you toyour affairs. On the
date that I have referred to you were on your
yway to the railway station at Bexmore, to
catch the night express from tlie North to
London '
As a hint that his time was valuable the
ship-owner had hitherto remained stand-
ing, '.'He now took his ciit.,-iarav seat, and
began ,to listen with some interest. Mrs.
Callenl,,r had produc-ed, her effect on him,

,"It was absolutely necessary," slhe pro-
ceeded, "that vou should be on board your
ship in the London- docks at 9 o'clock the
next morning. If you had lost the express
the vessel would have.-saiil,,i without you."
'The ex plressihn of his fac:- began to change

that she will choose well and wisely-tlhatu
shie will make the happiness of a manl who
is worthy of her-and that, as wife and
mother, she will set an example of inesti-.
liable value in tile social sphere that she.
occupies. In proof of the heartfelt sincerity
with which I pay my tribute to lier virtues,
Iadd to this my will the clause that fol-
lows."
With the clause that followed Ernest was
already acquainted.
"Will you now believe that I never loved
till I saw your face for the first timee?' said
his wife. I had no experience to place
me on my .guard against the fiascination-
thle minadness- sonime people might call it-
which possesses a woman whlien all her heart
is given to a man. Don't despise me, my
dear. Remember that I had to save you
from disgrace and ruin. Besides, miny old
stage remembrances tempted me. I had
acted in a play in which the heroiiine did
what. I have dune. It didn't end with me
as it did with her in the story. Slie was
represented as rejoicing inll the success of her
disguise. I have known somnie miiiserable
hours of doubt and shame since our mar-
riage. When I went to meet you in my
own' person at the picture gallery-oil, what
relief', what joy I felt when I saw how you
admired me !-it was not because I could no
longer carry on thle disguise. I was able to
get hours of rest from thle effort, not only at
night, but in tile daytime, when I was-shut
up in my retirement in thle nimusic-room,
and when my maid kept watch against. dis-,
covery. No, my love! I hurried on thle dis-
closure because I could no longer endure the
hateful triumph of my own deception. Ah,
look at that witness against me! I can't bear
even to see it !)"
She abruptly left him. The drawer that
she had opened to take out the copy of tlhe
will also contained the false gray hair which
slie had discarded. It had only tliat moment
attracted her notice. She snatched it up
and turned to thle fireplace.
Ernest took it from her before shie could
destroy it. Give it to m e," lie said,
"Why ?"
He drew lier gently t.o his bosom, and an-
swered: "I must not forget my old wife."'-

'MIHTY INTERESTING READING."-Fro m
the 1st of January, 1884, to the 1st of Jan-
uary, 1885,'we .are to have an interesting
succession of stirring events of which every
one will wish to hear. Two military "can-
paigns are at present in progress-that of El
Mahdi in the Soudan and of the French in
Tonquin--botl of which are approaching
the critical point. The next session of Par-
liament is to be marked, according to the an-
nounced purpose of Mr. I'arnell, by a bitter
triijl:-';lk Of the Irish nationalists to compel
their English and Scotch colleagues to con-
cede to Ireland some measure of home-rule.
In default of this, Mr. Parnell promises to
employ his following to so c;bstruct tihe
transaction of parliamentary business, as to
render the r-esIel(_. e of Irish miemuibers at St.
Stephen's intolerable. This pr,.,:_,ra mlrle iln-
sures a succession of exciting scenes in Par-
liam'ent., The new reform bill. Wlicle Mr..

made was that they should hire furnished
apartments. If tlheyv lived at a hotel friends
of the husband or tlie wife (visitors like
themselves to the famous city) might see
heir names in the book, or nieet them at
he door.
. They were soon established in a house
irge enough to provide them with every
ccoiiniodation which they required.
Ernest's days were passed in the galleries,
ire. Lismore remaining at home, devoted to
er music, until it was time to go out with
er husband for a drive. Living together
n. perfect amity and concord, they were
nevertheless not living happily. Without
ny visible reason for the change, Mrs. Lis-
lore's spirits were depressed. Onil thle oc-
asion when Ernest noticed it she made all
effort to be cheerful, which it distressed him
)see. He allowed her to think that she
ad relieved him of any further anxiety.
whateverr doubts he might feel were doubts
elicately concealed from that forth.
But when two people are living togetlier
i a state of artificial tranquillity it seems to
i a law of nature tliat the elements of dis-
rbance gather unseen, and that tile out-
irst comnies inevitably with thle lapse of
l i e "
rli tenl' days from thle date of their arrival
Munich the crisis camine. Ernest returned
,er than usual from thle picture gallery,
d--for the first time in his wife's exper-
ice-shut himself up in his own room.
Ie appeared at thle dinner hour with a
.ile excuse. Mrs. Lismore waited until
3 servant liad withdrawn. "Now, Ernest,"
Said, "it's time to tell mne thle trutlh."
:er manner when slie said those few
rds took him by surprise. She was un-
,stionably confused; and, instead of look-
at himi, she trifled with the fruit on her
te. Embarrassed on his side, he could
y answer, I have nothing to tell."
Were there many visitors at. the gal-.
?" she asked.
About the same as usual.?'
Any that you particularly noticed?" slie
t on. I mean among the ladies."
--e hlaute,1 uneasily. "You forget how
interested I am in the pictures," he said.
There was a pause. Slie looked up at
him-and suddenly looked away again. But
lie saw it plainly: there were tears in her
eyes.
Do you mind turning down the gas?"
she said. "My eyes have been weak all
day."
He complied with her request-the mniore
readily, having his own reasons for being
glad to escape the glaring scrutiny of the
light.
"I think I will rest a little on the sofa,"
she resumed. In theposit-oun-which he oc-.
cupied his back would have been now turned
on.her. She stopped him when he tried to
move his chair. "I would rather not look
at you, Ernest," she said, "when you have,
lost confidence in me."
Not the words, but the tone, toiiched all
that was generous and noble in his nature.
He left his place and knelt beside her-and
opened to her his whole heart.

x.
"' AmnI notunworthy of vou?" he asked,
when it was over.
She pressed his hand in silence.
I should be the most ungrateful wretch
living,' he said, ifI did not think of you,
and you only, now tliat my confession is
made. We will leave Munich to-morrow-
and, if resolution can help me, I will only
remember the sweetest woman my eyes ever
looked on as the creature of a dream."
She hidher face on his breast and re-
minded him of that letter .of her writing,
which had decidedd the course of their lives.
".When I thought you might meet that
happy woman in my lifetime, I said to you :
'Teli nie of it--and I promise to tell her.that,


she is only to wait,' Time must pass, Errne4t,
before it can be needful to p,.rform my
promise.' But you might let me see her.
if you find Iherin the gallery to-morrow you
m igh t bring:her, here."
Mrs. Li-.more's request nmt-. with"norefiust.i
Ernest, waasot.ly at a-loss .to knliow how. to
grant it.
You tell me she is a copyj3 i.t of pictures,"'
his wife remindied *-l hinm."- She will ,be in-
tcel-ted :in hearing of the portfolio of draw-
in-s : by the great Frencli artists which
bought, for you in Paris. Ask her to come
and'see tliei, antid to tell you if she can
in:; -i<:somecopi'.?s. And say, if ,'." like,
that'I shall bq glad to become acquainted
with her."
Tie felt her :r:lih beti: ti-r. fast on.. his.

.control oveir herself be tried to relieve her by

wLS a1bottot witl:I .r1w. ". Rtmi-l, when


you return from the gallery' to-day, I expect
that you will not return al6one."

Three hours rater lie was at homie again.
Thle young lady's service's ai A. copyist were
at hisi disposal; she liad returnedd wiih him
to look at thle drawings. /.
The sitting-room was eim,,pty when they
entered it.. lIe rang for hi wife's maid, and
was informed thalt Mrs.i LImore had gone
out: Refusing t0'"believ'e the woman, lie
went to his wife's apartments. Slie was not
to be found.
When he returned to the sitting-room the
young lady was not unnaturally offended.
He could make allowances for her being a
little out of temper at the slight that had
been put on hler; but lie was inexpressibly
disconcerted by the ruannar-almnost the
coarse muanner-in which slie expressed her-
self.
I have been talking to your wife's maid
wliile you have been away," she said. "I
find you have married a' old lady for her
money. Shle is jealous ofme, of'course?"
Let, me beg you to altr. your opinion,"
lie answered. You are w.ronging my wife ;
she is incapable:of any suich feeling as you
attribute to lier." '
Thle y6Uiig lad y luge.]: "At any rate,
you are a good husbandd; sl6 said. Sup-
pose you own the truth? Wouldn't you
like lier better if slie was young and pretty
like me?''
He was not nimerely surprised; he was dis-
gusted. Her beauty liad so completely fas-
cinated him when lie first saw her that tlhe
idea of associating any want of refinement
and good breeding with such a chliarming
creature never entered his mind. Tlie dis-
enchantment of him was already so com-
plete that hlie was even (li-,:ret:,ly affected
by thle tone of lier voice; it was almost as
repellant to hini as thle exhibition of unre-
strained bad temper whici she seemed per-
Sfectlycareless to conceal., ,
' I confess you surprise i'!!i," lie said.
Thle reply produced no ,ti-,:.r, on hler. On
thle contrary, slihe became more insolent than
ever.
"I have a fertile fancy,",she went on,
and your absurd way oft ikirg a joke only
encourages me. Suppose you could trans-
form this sour old wife of yours, who has
insulted me, into thle sweetest.vyoutng create re
tliat ever lived by only ',holding up yotir
finger-wouldn't you do it?'"
This passed tlie limitsof his endurance.
"I have no wish," lie said, to forget tlhe
consideration which is dueto a woman. I
have but one alternative;;. I must leave the
room."
She ran to the door as hespoke, and placed
herself in the wa of b is .;, out
He signed to her to let him pass.
She suddenly threw her arms round his
neck, kissed him passionately, and whis-
pered, witli her lips at his ea'r, Oh, Ernest,
forgive me!- Could I have asked you to
mniarry me for my money if'I had not taken
refuge in a disguise?"

XII.
When he had sufficiently recovered to
think he put her back from him. '" Is there
an end of the deception no1w? Am I to trust
you in your new character ?"
You are not to be harder on me than I
deserve," she answered gently. Did you
ever hear of an actress named Miss Max ?"
He began to understaiinl hier. "Forgive
meifI spoke lharshly. :You have put me
to a severe trial."
She burst into tears. Love," she mur-
mured, is my only excuse."
From that moment she had won her par-
don. He took lier land, ;and made her sit,
by him. !' "
"'Yes," he said, I have .heard of Miss:
Max, and of her won'lerfiil powers .of per-
sonation, and I have alWays: regretted not


ha ving seen her while sl,: w.is on the stage.":
"Did you hear anythini, more of her, Er-

success, to marry an ol'l it, an."

wish for my company you will always be
welcome. At other times you are your own
master. I live on my side of the house and
you live on yours, and I am to be allowed
my hours of solitude every day, in the pur-

"A last word, to remind you of what you
may be too kind to think of yourself,
"At my age you cannot, in the course of

ful old woman for many years. ,You are
young enough to look forward to another
marriage, which shall be something more
than a mere form. Even if you.meet with
the happy woman in my lifetimhie, honestly
tell me of it-and I promise to tell her that
she has only to wait.
'"In the meantime don't think because I
write composedly, that I write heartlessly.
You pleased and interested me when I first
saw you at the public meeting. I don't
think I could proposed what you call this
sacrifice of myself to a man who had per-
sonally repelled !ue-though I might have
felt my debt of gratitude as sincerely as ever.

THE INDIAN HOSTILITY CLAIM.
We had hoped to see some action in
Congress upon the bill to reimburse
the State for the expenditures made in
1857 in repressing Indian hostilities.
The Military Committee of the Senate
have reported that the claim was a
just one and should be paid, princip
,and interest, and then. very inconsist-
ently proposed to settle the claim )
paying the difference only in the fa
amount of the State claim and th
bonds of the State held by the India
trust fund. The State claim as re
ported by the Secretary of War i
$228,000, and is entitled to draw in
terest from 1857.
The Indian trust fund holds bond
of the State issued about 1857 fo
$136,000, drawing interest from dat
The committee propose a dicker which
will deprive the State of interest o
$92,000 for a period of 27 year
amounting to about $150,000.
If the United-States are indebted t
the State at' all they owe the who
sum, principal and in-terest. Let the
pay what they owe in full, anka-i-e
State pay its bonds in full. Let the
matter be settled like any other busi-
ness transaction between two solvent
parties.
We hope our Senators and Repre-
sentatives will urge and secure the
full measure of justice to which the
State is entitled.

printed matter, covering 24 pages. The
length of the columns if placed length-
wise in galleys would be 336 feet; the

was issued as an anniversary number,
it being the 9th anniversary of the
establishment of the paper.

Our Distinguished Visitors.
To the Editor of the Mirror :
Among the many and various types of
vessels that have entered' our waters this
season none are more justly celebrated than'
Mr.' Gould's Atalanta and Mr. Arthur Padd-le-'
ford's yacht ,leen. That these vessels could
find ready eiitrian,_e to our harbor demon-
strates the importance of :providing the ac-
commodations and inducements requisite to
make our port attractive to this'class of
visitors. St. Augustine ard 'Jac;iks,,Inville
have each furnished their club house, ex-
tending a generous welcome to strangers,
while our city has allowed their claims to its
hospitality to remain unrecognized. Is it
not time we prove by our action that we
'desire and merit this class of patronage?
Viewed from a business point alone, suffi-
cient encouragement to move in this matter
may be found in the fact that they .become
our customers while honoring us with their
presence. :IIt is pleasant., to know that. the
gentlenenll referred to expressed their un-
qualified approval of the natural advantages
Fr.-nrndina offers yachtsmen and tourists
for a sojourn. We learn that Mr. Paddleford
hias left for New York to put theI/een in
trim for hler race with the Htildegjlard,.' o\\wned
by Mr. Herman Oelrichs, which is to take
place in June. i
Mr. Paddleford's cutter-yacht may be re-
garded as a beautiful and perfect type, hav-


ing been built expressly for him in the best
possible manner and without, regard to cost,
ard is preparedl to enforce her claims against
all competitors. Those of us who had the
pleasure of his icqiluaini taiice during his pro-
longed stay will readily understand that he
has cl Irage to back his opinions. During a
visit to his beautiful vessel the night before
she sailed, at which we were favored with a
glillS.e of tlie yaelhtlen's life on board, its
fascinations were more than ever apparent.
The accommodations rnay .be. properly
termed superb; her cabin is elegantly fitted-
up, and contains every desired comfort and
luxury. The dinner served will long be re-
membered for its rare excell,-ence and the
bonhomie of the host.
'Mr. Paddleford, was accompanied on his


DRUNKENNESS A CR iME.
A correspondent of the Ocala Banner, I
whose letter we find in the Fernandinta
Mranon, advocates the passage of a law for
the punishment of drunkenness. He says :
Make drunkenness a crime, as it is the
parent of so many, then will temperance
flourish in our land and every other virtue."''
As the writer has probably seen a good
many people drunk in Florida and never
known a case in which the drunkard was
punished, criminally, he very naturally
supposes we have no law making drunken-
ness a criminal offense. He is mistaken,
however, as is the editor of the MIRROR, who
says: "An effective mode of preventing
drunkenness would be to treat it as a crime,
and enforce the penalties of tine and im-
prisonment."'
We commend to the attention of these
gentlemen the following clause in our crimi-
nal code, taken from the crime's act of
August 6, 1868: Whoever is guilty of
drunkenness by the voluntary use of in-
toxicating liquor, shall for the first offense
be punished by a fine not exceeding $5, and
for any like offense committed after the
first conviction by a fine not exceeding $10,
or by imprisonment in the county jail not
exceeding three months." And by another
clause of the same act it is declared that
"common drunkards may upon conviction
be committed for a term not exceeding six
months to the county jail."
Each of these laws isquiteas much a dead
letter as that. denouncing punishment for
carrying arms secretly; and with a little less
excuse for the officers of justice, for the
latter crime, by its very terms, indicates
some difficulty of detection ; examples of the
other two are public and notorious.
Will not the editor of the MIRROK., who
believes so strongly in the effectiveness of
the punishment of drunkenness, criminally,
as a means of prevention, call on the author-
ities in Nassau county to enforce these laws
in and about Fernandina ?
But if lie who is guilty of the act of drunk-
enness is punished, should he who for gain
furnishes the liquor go free? We ask the
question ; we are not prepared to answer it.
Perhaps our Fernandina contemporary is.
If so, we pause for a reply."---Economist.
THE MIRROR would say that on
general principles there is a very great
difference between the sale of an ar-
ticle which may produce mischief and
the willful commission of the mischief
itself. The druggist who sells danger-
ous drugs is not to be placed in the
category with the person who uses
them improperly. We believe that as
a part of'a system of repression of the
use of intoxicating liquors drunkenness
should be treated as a crime.
We also think that stringent restric-
tions and penalties should be placed
on the sale of liquors, prohibiting the
sale to minors, to intoxicated men,
habitual drunkards, etc., and that the
seller should be liable for any damage
or injury resulting from such. sales.
The State having given a license to
sell, cannot consistently make the
mere act of selling a crime. We are
giad our contemporary has .directed
attention to the statute, and we call
the attention of good citizens and pub-
lic officers to the necessity of enforcing
this statute.
It is violated every Saturday even-
ing in our streets. We do not believe
in denouncing the liquor dealer alone,


albeit we have never apologized for
!him.. Let public opinion deal justly
with both classes.
Is the statute rlot a dead letter be-
cause those who desire to p:ut down in-
temlilerance fail to do theip duty?,

AN IMPORT, T DECISION AS TO
RAILROAD LANDS. .
Some reference has been made here- i
tofore in the, newspaper press of the
interior to the land grant to the At-
lantic, Gulf &,..West India Railroad
Company, know more recently as the
Transit Compay,-
A point was raised as to the position
of parties who had entered lands'
within the limits of lands granted for
the construction of the railroad, after
the grant was made, but before the
actual construction of the railroad, and
some intemperate and unjust criticism
has been indulged in towards the
grantees.
It was held by the Supreme
Court of the United States in the case
of Schulenberg vs. Harrison, 21 Wal-
lace 44, that the act of Congress of
May 17, 1856, iumppsed a present grank
to the extent of "passing over to the
State the legal'Yl^tle to the odd sections
designated. Under this decision the
United States land offices were held to
have acted erroneously in allowing
homesteads to be taken on lands en-
tered within the six mile limits.
On the 1st of April, 1876, the di-
rectors of the Atlantic, Gulf & West
India Railroad unanimously adopted
the following resolution:
Resolved, Tthatv;.p:hM;s .company hlereby
waives all claim to so much of the lands onil
each side of their lines of road between
Waldo and Tampa Bay, to which this com-
pany is entitled by law, as may be found by
the General Land OfiMce at Washington to be
occupied by settle a,'Who may be entitled to
equitable relief up to Deceember 13, 1875,
saving and reserving to this company any
and all rights of indelmniy vested in the,
company under existing laws.
This liberal action of the company,
was followed on the 25th of June,
1881, by .the following further waiver:
In due consideration -of all the circum-
stances, the company has decided to extend
the relinquishment, or' waiver heretofore
made to all actual bona fide settlers, who
made improvements prior to the 16th day of
March, 1881. upon which day instructions
were issued to the,local land offices, with-
drawing all such i~nJs from entry.'
It will be seen, therefore, that the
Transit Company waived' their rights
under these two resolutions in favor of
all actual bona fide settlers.
All they a,.-_k-l was an indemnity in
other lands for those so surrendered.
This claim for inleinity has been re-
cently formally: ;:_,ssel1 upon by' the
Secretary of tli- Irterior, and we ob-
tain from Brainard's Legal Precedents,
a valuable mon:,thly publication issued
in Washington, tlb following syllabus
of the decision, re-:, gnizing the right
of the railrh':,at ;3npany to such in-
'dem nity. :;" ,..
ATLANTIC, GULF AND WEST INDIA TRANSIT
O Mle.\NY.
The grant to this r,,ad was made by the
act of May 17, 1856, and the lands were with-
drawn September 6, i'",5, but six days after-
,warld-, the order of withdrawal was modified
so as to allow pre-enmptions until "the line
of the road was definitely located. April 25,
1857, the local officers were instructed not to
"pe rmit' an y further e I tri e.
Deeebnl.)er 14, 1860,'i aImlp of location was


filed in the General Land Office by the Chief
Engineer of the road, but was returned to
him on January 22, 1861, for the purpose.of
procuring the certificate of the ('l[\cvenr-,r of
Florida that it was filed by authority of the
State; said map was afterwards lo-t. April
3, 1876, a duplicate of thi-, was !filed, and it
was rejected by thle Delartiment. on April 29,
following. November l), l.P79, the Compa-
ny appli.-d. for a review, of; the action of, t.2'1

ei'tili was granted Jauary 28, 1881, and di-.
rec(tionl given to filet, r i map and withdraw,
the lands, and the withdrawal was accord-
ingly made on Malich 16,-. 1881., l;athe
meantime the .Cnillpany relinquished its
claim' to the lands which had been entered
by settlers, and in 1 ':2 selected even sections
in lieu thereof, under the act of June 22,
1874; and the questions here discussed are
whether or onot the lComp, y is entitled to
such indemnity, and it is Held:
1. That the map of 1S60, as filed, taken in
crinection with actual surveys in the field,
was valid, and suticient to fix and locate
definitely the line of the road, and to bring
home to this Department notice of such lo-
cation. I. ; xA
2. That a l]e-.ila iv-.,vitlidrawal followed
"the filing of that mnap, (Van Wyck vs. Kne-
,vals, 106 U. S., 360.)
3. That such results were nlt destroyed

OTUB GREAT TRUNK LINES.
The recent consolidation of the
Transit Railroad and its branches with
the Florida Central and its branches
-embraces about 450 miles of railroad
now in operation, and extensions
southward now building will add 160
ailes more, when the consolidated
system now formed under the name of
the Florida Railway and Navigation
(Company will embrace over six
hundred miles of railway in Florida.
'The location of the lines of this sys-
tem of road is the best possible for the
traffic of Florida. A glance at the
map will show a line beginning at
'Fernandina on the Atlantic, the route
passing southwesterly to Waldo, a dis-
tance of 84 miles, which is situated
about the center of the peninsula.
From this point the westerly branch
of the road continues in the same di-
rection, striking the Gulf of Mexico at
Cedar Key, 71 miles from Waldo,
where communication is made by
steamship lines to all points of the
gulf coast and Havana. The main
line of the road leaving Waldo runs
nearly due north in the direction of
'Tampa and Charlotte Harbor. The
road is now in operation to Wildwood,
85 miles south of Waldo. From Wild-
-wood to Charlotte Harbor, the eventual
.terminus of the road, is 132 miles in
.An air line. Charlotte Harbor is
.looked to as the eventual ,.southern
-terminus of the road as being the most
southerly ship harbor in the direction
,of Cuba and the West :India Islands.
From Charlotte Harbor to Key West
is abput 175 miles, and Key West to
."Havana, 90 miles, thus bringing the
terminus at Charlotte Harbor within
t24 hours run of Havana. Connection
-will also be made with Tampa, which
'lies'about 20 miles west of a direct
'line south., 'Charlotte Harbor lies
.only 300 miles, south of Fernandina,
S and. can -be reached in 12 hours after,
.the road is completed to that point.
.From Wildwood there is projected
:-an'easterly branch to Indian River, on
-the Atlantic coast, a distance of about
..85 miles 'only, of which 12 miles to
I P.eesburg is already in operation. By
this system of roads the Gulf of Mexico
'isa reached atithe three terminal "points
00f Cedar Keyi, Tarmpa and Charlotte
Itarbor, and t-'e Atlantic coast at In-
i. ian tiver, thus' uniting 'the- interests

HE MOST SUCCESSFUL REMEDY
ever discovered, as it is certain in its
effects and does not blister. READ PROOF
BELOW.

Saved Him $1,800.00.
ADAMS, N. Y., January 30, 1882.
Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co.:
GENTS-Having used a good deal of your
Kendall's Spavin Cure with great success. I
thought I would let you know what it has,
done for me. Two years ago I had as speedy
a colt as was ever raised in Jefferson county.
When I was breaking him he kicked over
the cross-bar ,and got fast and tore one of his
hind legs all to pieces. I employed the best
farriers, but they all said he was spoiled.
He had a very large thorough-pin, and I
used -two bottles of your Kendall's Spavin
Cure, and it took the bunchl entiirly .ff, and
lie sold afterwards for $1800 (dollars). I have
used it for bone spavins and wind-galls, and
it has always cured completely and left the
leg smooth.
It is a splendid medicine for rheumatism.
I have recommended it to a good many, and
they all say it does the work. I was in With-
erington & Kneeland's drug store, in Adams,
the other day, and saw a very fine picture
you sent them. I tried to buy it, but could
not; .they said if I would write to you that
you would send me one. I wish you would,
and I will do you all the good I can.
Very respectfully. E. S. LYMAN.


Kendall's Spavin Cure.
ON HUMAN FLESH.
VEVAY, IND., August 12, 1881.
Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co.:
GENTs-Sam1ple of circulars received to-
day. Please send me some with my imprint,
printed on one side only. The Kendall's
Spavin Cure is in excellent demand with us,
and not only for animals, but for human
ailments also. Mr. Jos. Voris, one of the
leading farmers in our county, sprained an
ankle badly, and knowing the value of the
remedy for horses, tried it on himself, and it
did far better than lie had expected ; cured
the sprain in very short order.
Yours respectfully, C. O. THIEBAND.
Price $1 per bottle, or 6 bottles for $5. All
druggists have it or can get it for you, or it

The New Inland Route.
The Savannah News says the new inland
route from that city to Florida by way of
lontgomery will reopened early next week,
the steamer St. Nicholas having been char-
tered to run from Montgomery to Fernan-
dina, connecting at the first named place by
the City and Suburban railway with Savan-
nah, and at Fernandina with the railroad
from that city to Jacksonville. The new
route is under control of the Florida Rail-
road and Steam Navigation Company.--

Shad for the St. Marys River.
The United States steamer Fish-Hawk ar-
rived here on Tuesday. The Fish-Hawk is
attached to the Fish Commission, and came
into our harbor in pursuance of the recom-
mendations of the Special Fish Commission
to deposit spawn in the St. Marys river.
She has now gone up that river for that pur-
pose. The St. Marys is assuming much im-
portance for its abundant supply and great
adaptability for fish culture. Large quanti-
ties of fish caught in the St. Marys are
shipped every week to Northern cities.

Arrival of the Fire Extinguishing
Apparatus.
The chemical fire engine "Samuel A.
Swann," and the hook and ladder truck for
the Fernandina Fire Department arrived
this week from Baltimore, where it was
built upon an order from our City Council.
Tile engine and apparatus are handsome
pieces of workmanship. A trial of the en-
gine was made on the baseball grounds
Thursday afternoon, but, owing to the inex-
perience of the company, it could hardly be
considered a fair test; and did not bring out
the full capacity and effective power of the
engine.

Parlor Concert at the Egmont.
On Thursday last a thoroughly enjoyable
evening was passed in the parlors of the
Egmont Hotel by those whose good fortune
enabled them to avail themselves of the cour-
teous invitation extended to them by Mr.Kit-
telle, and the committee who carried out
with marked success the recherch pro-
gramme of vocal and instrumental music
rendered by some of the guests of the hotel,
assisted by our home talent and the orches-
tra of the hotel. Where all did so well, and
contributed so largely to the enjoyment of
the audience, it seems almost invidious to
make individual mention of the distin-
guished amateurs. Still with a desire to
" link our memories with sweet sounds,"
we find our programme marked with a
grateful asterisk after Mr. Leech's rendering
of the Rose and Nightingale. In Le Revell
the excellent voice and musical culture of
Mrs. Bradford gave excellent opportunity
for refined rendition. Nor must we forget
kindly mention of Miss Waterhouse and Mr.
Thorne, who each in their allotted parts
pleased so well. Major Duryee, in a well-
chosen solo, and again in the duet with
Mrs. Bradford, gave evidence that his voice
has not lost its unusual fine timbre since
last it was our fortune to hear him. The
well-chosen trio Salve Regina brought a
charming concert to a most successful con-
clusion.
The parlors were prettily decorated with
our semi-tropical flowersand foliage, while
the ample corridors and spacious verandas


offered a delightful promenade, cooled by
the grateful sea-breeze, perfumed by the
blooming orange trees by which the hotel is
surrounded. So successful was the enter-
tainment that we trust it will not be the
last musical reuniou of the season at the
Egmont.

-Mrs. Ann F. Cooper, mother of Hon. M.

lantly leading his command during the
Florida war.aindy was Senator in the State
Legislature s. Cooper attained a vener-
able age, l Ing lived to see the whole

tion and property of thle State of hier adop-
tion. Sle lhas many relatives and friends

How to Keep Fruiits or Fish.
The preservation of Florida fruits in store
so as to avoid precipitate shipments and
consequent glutting of tlhe markets hlas been
more or less agitated for some time past in
our columns. The most feasible plan, ac-
cording to experts in this matter, is to con-
struct cold storage rooms which can be kept
at any suitable even temperature
and dry for months together by the
Little GiantlIce Machine. This machine
is made ii' sizes to produce daily
from five hqindred pounds to ten tons of ice
as may be (li.t-.ible, and is consequently the
best mnachlin6!for- this purpose, as there need
be no lost capacity.
The company is said to be responsible and
guarantees its machines to do what is
claimed. We know of no enterprise more
inviting to largee shippers of fruits or fish,
and none more inviting to enterprising
young men of limited means in the interior
towns of Florida than the manufacture of
ice in daily quantities to suit the require-
nients of communities off the lines of
transportation, to whom ice is an impossible
commodity. IThe company headquarters are
in Cincinnati, Ohio. i e-

Mr. I: A. Motde, of tile firm of MAode Brcs.,
left MAonday fpr' New York to purchase an
entire' new, stock of spring and summer
goods, consistiy4g of Dry Goods, Clothing,
Boots,: Shoes. Hats and N'otios, which will
be sold at- less than Jacksonville prices.
Look out for'their advertisement in next
