Nothing was discovered except the fact that
soon after the-arrival of armed visitors who

line of archive investigation) in looking up

some valuable books and a few rare an-

Last December Mr. James M.
Willcox, Jr., of Philadelphia, ship-
ped twenty boxes of oranges from
his grove in Orlando to a friend in
England, as an experiment. They
were of the large Bell variety, from
seedling trees, and arrived in splen-
did condition; and although De-
cember fruit is not equal to that left
on the trees a month longer, the
venture was a marked success. The
oranges were placed in the hands of
a dealer, exposed, and labelled
Florida Oranges." Their large
size, very unusual anywhere in
Europe, together with the label, at-
tracted many persons to buy out of
curiosity. The dark heavy soil in
the vicinity of Orlando, grows good
fruit, and the first purchasers re-
turned for more oranges at high
prices, but twenty boxes afforded a
very poor supply. The trade with
Europe for Florida oranges ,has
hardly opened, and will grow to im-
mense proportions as soon as the
profit is demonstrated. Only first-
class fruit will pay to send there,
and it must all be produced on pine
land as hammock oranges have too
delicate a skin to carry so far.-

It is desired that every fruit grow-
er in the State shall become a mem-

The Executive Committee, having
charge of the celebration of the an
niversary of the landing of Ponce 'd(
Leon -in' Florida, on Friday, March
27th, 1512, and the founding of th(
city of St. Augustine by Menende2
in 1565, have decided upon the fol
lowing programme:
The celebration to begin on Fri-
day, March 27th, 1885, and continue
two days.
The exercises to begin with a
grand land and water display, rep-
resenting the landing of the Spanish
troops and taking possession of the
country. The shipping and the uni-
form of the troops will be after the
most careful studies, and will repre-
sent, as nearly as possible, the actual
appearance on that occasion.
A novel feature will be the pres-
ence of a body of Seminoles from
the southern part of the State, the
descendants of the tribes who greeted
the Spaniards on their landing.
SA grand military mass will be
celebrated at the landing, as upon
the first occasion three centuries ago.
It is intended that the whole dis-
play shall represent, on a large scale,
a great historical picture.
The landing and accompanying
ceremonies will be followed by a
grand parade, military and civic, in
which it is hoped the volunteer
troops from Florida and her neigh-
boring States may take part. All
civic organizations of Florida and
her sister States are earnestly invited
to participate.
The various incidents in the his-
tory of the "Ancient City" will be
illustrated in the parade.
The streets will be decorated in
accordance with careful design, for
which the antique houses and 'over-
hanging balconies will give ample
After the parade there will be an
oration, and other appropriate cere-
monies within the court-yard of Fort
San Marco, the oldest fortification
on this continent.
A grand military ball will con-
clude the festivities of the first day.
In the morning there will be a
grand regatta. This will afford
,abundant opportunity to all lovers
of aquatic sports, the large squadron
of sailing craft in St. Augustine be-
ing reinforced by those from all
along the coast.
The regatta will be followed by a
tournament in true Southern style.
After the tournament there will
take place an entirely novel display,
the like of which ha.,, never been at-
tempted on this side of the Atlantic.
This feature will be nothing less
than the reproduction of the Battaile
des Fleurs (Battle of Flowers), as in
the Carnival of Nice. This display
of a moving panorama of a profusion
of flowers, covering horses and car-
riages and embowering the fair occu-
pants during the friendly contest
will alone be worth a journey to see
It will, in fact be a reproduction of
one of the most attractive features of
the Carnival of Nice, which yearly
attracts crowds of visitors from every
part of Europe.
A grand display of fire-works in
the evening will conclude the two
days' entertainment.

Washington newspaper correspond-
ents seem somewhat surprised that
so few applicants for office from the
South have appeared in Washington.
They have hunted pretty diligently
for the Southern office-seekers, and
although they have found a few,
they have not been able to telegraph
their papers that the South is clam-
orous for the offices, and that there
is already enough applicants from
the Southern States in Washington
to fill every office in the gift of the
government. The great crowd that is
demanding recognition is furnished
by the North and West;.
It is probable that the pressure for

company has not been so much
in fault as many persons believe.
The act of Congress granting the
lands to aid in the construction of
this road was passed May 17, 1856.
The Florida Railroad Company com-
menced building the road in that
year, and on the 1st of January,
1861, had completed '154 miles, enti-
tling the company under the grant
to 591,369 acres of land, of which
281,000 were certifie*f to the com-
pany. Theroad ha(I. also been gra-
ded almost all the wiy from Waldo
to Ocala-about 40 miles. Then the
war broke out, and while it lasted,
and for at least a year afterwards, it
would have been impossible for any
company to have prosecuted a work
of that kind in Florida. Then an
opinion was given by the Attorney-
General of the United States, which
was binding upon the Department
of the Interior, that the expiration
of the ten year limit in the act of
Congress, ipso facto, forfeited all the
lands which had not been already
earned by the road and, restored
them to the public domain. This
opinion governed the Interior De-
partment until a decision was made
by the Supreme Court of the United
States (which decision has been
re-affirmed twice by said court), that
the lands were not forfeited by lapse
of time, and the grant held good un-
til action should be taken by Con-
gress to forfeit the lands. After that
decision of the court,,the company
again applied to the Secretary of the
Interior to recognize its rights under
the grant, ,but Secretary Chandler
refused to do so. In 1881, and not
until then, Secretary Schurz, recog-
nizing the principles laid down by
the Supreme Court, ordered a with-
drawal from market of the lands
embraced in the grant. So it will
be seen that from 1860 to March,
1881, the land grant was not avail-
able to the company to aid in the
construction of the road, and with-
out the lands the company could
not build the road. Since March,
1881, the company has built 107
miles from Waldo.,south, leaving
uncompleted at this time, of the
whole road, less than fifty miles,
and the work on that portion is be-
ing pushed forward as speedily as
It will thus be seen that since the
passage of the act of May 17, 1856,
there has been ten years in which
the lands granted therein were avail-
able to aid in the construction of the
road. From May 19, 1856, to Janu-
ary 17, 1861, is four years and eight
months. From March, 1883, to the
present time is four years, making
altogether eight years and eight
months of time during, which the
validity of the comyany's claim has
been recognized and the lands could
be used for the purposes intended
by Congress.-Forida Herald.

In commenting u and finding
fault with the, company constructing
the line of' road from Fernandina to
Tampa, with an extension to Cedar
Key, much stress is frequentlyy laid
upon the failure' of the company
to build any part of the road for
the twenty years between 1860 and
1881, and attention is frequently
called to the fact that the land grant
of Congress was lini.,led to a period
of ten years, expiring in 1866. If
all the circumstances obstructing
the construction of r rod,. during
that time be taken 4,nto considera-
tion, it will be found that the

offices in Washington will not bj
very strong from the South. There
will be a pretty earnest demand
however, for the Federal offices
throughout the Southern States
The Southern people feel that they
have been deprived of what rightly
belongs to them too long already,
and they expect the President to re-
spond quite promptly to their peti-
tions for changes.
There is one thing that the people
ought to be careful about. It is that
capable and conscientious men shall
be appointed. The President is dis-
posed to do what the people desire,.
The people want the very best men
they can get to serve them, and the
President wants to appoint the best
men because he is anxious that no
fault shall be found with his admin-
Whenever, therefore, a disposition
is discovered to secure the appoint-
ment of applicants for office for any
other reason than fitness, the people
ought to enter their protest at once.
No doubt there will be efforts made
by men to get office who have no
qualifications for the place they
seek, and attempts doubtless will be
made to put men in office for rea-
sons other than their fitness. It
would be strange if there were not.
If the people do not protest against
such appointments they ought not
to-complain if the offices.-ashould be
filled by men who have neither the
desire nor the capacity to serve them
The young men of the South will
make a mistake if they seek offices
in Washington. There are evry few
places there that they would be
likely to get which pay more than
enough to'afford a living. There is
very little chance of advancement,
and at the end of four or eight years
they would ba little, if any, better off
than when they entered the service.
Those who have a hope of accom-
plishing something n life will, if
they are wise, avoid getting a posi-
tion under government at Washing-
ton.-Savannah News.'


Memory! Thy voice we hear,
Sweet as the vesper bell;
Solemn and low, yet clear.
As of the past ye tell!
Sounding the sweet refrain-
Life wasnot lived in vain!
Memory IrNfold the past!
Throw upon wide the door!
E'en though in shadow cast,
Yet would we see once more,
Unstained by soil or rust,
Those who've returned to dust'

Changes: for now again
Wrting from the heart, a groan.
Tells of a bitter pain!

Can'st thou efface them? No !

I cannot tell yo, the story just as
Nikola told it to me, ith all that flow
of language common in a Greek, my
memory is not good enough for that;
but the facts, and some of his quaint
expressions, I can recount, for these I
shall never forget. My travel took me
to a distant island of the Greek Archi-
pelago. called Sikinos, last winter, an
island only to be reached by a sailing
boat, and here, in quarters of the hum-
blest nature, IL was storm-stayed for
five long days. Nikola had been my
muleteer on an expedition I made to a
remote corner of the island, where still
are to be traced the ruins of an ancient
Hellenic town, and about a mile from
it a temple of Pythian Apollo. He
was a fine stalwart fellow of thirty or
thereabouts; he had a bright intelli-
gent face, and he wore the usual island
costume, namely, knickerbocker trous-
ers of blue homespun calico, with a
fullness, which hangs down between
the legs, and when full of things, for
it is the universal pocket, wabbles
about like the stomach of a goose; on
his head he wore a faded old fez, his
feet were protected from the stone by
sandals of untanned skin, and he car-
ried a long stick in his hand with
which to drive his mule.
Sikinos is perhaps the most unat-
tainable corner of Europe, being noth-
ing but a barren harborless rock in
the middle of the JEgean sea, possess-
ing as a fleet one caique, which occa-
sionally goes to a neighboring island
where the steamer stops, to see if
there are any communications from
the outer world, and four rotten fish-
ing boats, which seldom venture more
than a hundred yards from the shore.
The fifteen hundred inhabitants of the
rock lead a monotonous life in two
villages, one of which is two hun-
dred years old, fortified and dirty,
and called the Kastro," or the camp;
the other is modern, and about five
minutes' walk from the camp, and is
called "the other place;" so nomencla-
ture in Sikinos is simple enough. The
inhabitants are descended from certain
refugees, who, two hundred years ago,
fled from Crete during a revolution,
and built the fortified village up on
the hillside out of the reach of the pi-
rates, and remained isolated from the
world ever since. Before they came,
Sikinos had been uninhabited since
the days of the ancient Greeks. The
only two men in the place who have
traveled-that is to say, who have
been as far as Athens-are the De-

march, who is the chief legislator of
the island, and looked up to as quite
a. man of the world, and Nikola, the
1 must say that the last thing I ex-
pected to hear in Sikinos was a ro-
mance; but on one of the stormy days
of detention there, with the object of
whiling away an hourI paid a visit to
Nikola in his clean white house in
"the other place." Hemet me on the
threshold with a hearty We have
well met," bade me sit down on his
divan, and sent his wife-a bright.,
buxom young woman-for the custom-
ary coffee, sweets and raki; he rolled
me a cigarette, which he carefully
licked, to my horror, but which I
dared not refuse to smoke, cursed the
weather, and stirred the embers in the
brazier preparatory to attacking me
with a volley of questions. I always.
disarm inquisitiveness on such occa-
sions by being inquisitive myself.
"How long have you been married?"
"How many children have you?"
"How old is your wife?" and by the
time I had asked half a dozen such
questions, Nikola, after the fashion of
the Greeks, had forgotten his own
thirst for knowledge in his desire to
satisfy mine. In Nikola's case unpar-
alleled success attended this maneu-

passed between husband and wife I
realized that some mystery was at-
tached to their union, which I forth-
with made it my business to solve.
"I always call her 'my statue,'"
and he slapped her on the back to
show that, at any rate, she was of
pretty hard material.
"Can Pygmalion have married Ga-
latea after all?" I remarked, for the
moment forgetting the ignorance of
my friends on such topics, but a Greek
never admits that he does not under-
stand, and Nikola replied, "No; her
name is Kallirhoe, and she was the
priest's daughter." Having now
broached the subject, Nikola was all
anxiety to continue it: he seated him-
self on one chair, his wife took another,
ready to prompt him, if necessary, and
remind him of forgotten facts. I sat
on the divan; between us was the
brazier; the only cause-of interrup-
tion came from an exceedingly naugh-
ty child, which existed as a living tes-
timony that this modern Galatea had
recoered from her transformation into
"I was a gay young fellow in those
days," began Nikola.
Five years ago last carnival time,"
put in the wife, but she subsided on a
frown from her better half; for Greek
husbands never meekly submit, like
English ones, to the lesser portion of
command, and the Greek wife is the
pattern of a weaker vessel, seldom sit-
ting down to meals, cooking, spinning,
slaving--a mere chattel, in fact.

sisters and four brothers, and we four
worked day after day to keep our old
father's land in order, for we were
very poor and had nothing to live
upon except the produce of our land.
We worked every day in the year ex-
cept feast days, starting early with our
ploughs, our hoes and our pruning
ooks, according to the season, return-
ing late, driving our bullocks, and our
mules before us. On feast days we
danced on the village square. I used
to look forward to those days, for then
I met Kallirhoe, the priest's daughter,
who danced the syrtos best of all the
girls, tripping as softly as Nereid,"
said Nikola, looking approvingly at
his wife. I had seen the syrtos at Si-
kinos, and I could testify to the fact
that they danced it well, revolving in
light wavy lines backward, forward,
now quick, now slow, until you do not
wonder that the natives imagine those
mystic beings they call .Nereids to be
forever dancing thus in the caves and
grottoes. The syrtos is a semicircular
dance of alternate young men and
maidens, holding each other by hand-
kerchiefs, not from modesty, as one
might at first suppose, but so as to
give more action to their limbs, and in
dancing this dance it would appear
Nikola and Kallirhoe first felt the ten-
der passion of love kindled in their
breasts. But between the two a great
gulf was fixed, for marriages among a
peasantry so shrewd as the Greeks are
not so easily settled as they are with
us. Parents have absolute authority
over their daughters, and never allow
them to marry without a prospect,
and before providing for any son a
father's duty is to give his daughters
a house and a competency, and he ex-
pects any suitor for their hands to
present an equivalent in land and
farm stock. The result of this is to
create an overpowering stock of maid-
en ladies and to drive young men
from home in search of fortunes and

wives elsewhere.
This was the breach which was fixed
between Nikola and Kallirhoe-ap-
parenitly a hopeless case, for Nikola
had sisters and brothers and poverty,-
stricken parents;' he never could so-
much as hope to call a spade his own;
during all his life he would have to
drudge and slave for others. They
could not run away-that 'never: oc-
curred to them, for the only escape
from Sikinos was by the solitary
caique. "I had heard rumors," con-
tinued Nikola, "of how men from
other islands had gone to far-off coun-
tries and returned rich, but how could
I, who had never been off this rock in
all my life?"
"I should have had to travel by
one of those steamers which I had
seen with their tail of smoke on the
horizon, and about which I had pon-
dered many a time, just like you, sir,
may look and ponder at the stars; and
ponder at the stars; and to travel I
should require money, which I well
knew my father would not give me, f
for he wanted me for his slave. My
only hope, and that was a small one,
was that the priest, Papa Manoulas,
Kallirhoe's father, would not be too
hard on us when he saw how we loved
each other. He had been the priest
4-,n- rili m n p -in a l nn f T oA. m r h nofi.-im .

he always smoked a pipe wif''father
once a week; 1he had ,-Known me
all my life as) a steady lad, who
only got drunk .n feast days. 'Per-
haps he will ge his consent,' whis-
pered my m their, putting foolish
hopes into n" brain. Poor old wo-
man! she w iirieved to see her fa-
vorite looking rn and ill, listless at
his work, an forever incurring the
blame of fathw and brothers; only
when I talked to her about Kallirhoe
did my face, brighten a little, so she
said one day,' Papa Manoulas is kind;
likely enough he may wish to see Kal-
lirhoe happy.'--S o one evil day I con-
sented to my mother's plan, that she
should go and prolise for me."
Some explanation is here necessary.
At Sikinos, as in other remote corners
of Greece, they still keepl up a custom
called prozenia. The man does not
propose in person, but sends an old fe-
male relative to seek the girl's hand
from her parents; this old woman
must have on one stocking white and
the other or br'vn. "Your
stockings of t colors make me think
we shall have an offer," sings an island
poem. Nikola's mother went thus
garbed, but returned with a sorrowful
face. "I was made to eat gruel," she
said, using the common expression in
these parts for a refusal, "and nobody
ate more than I did. Next day Papa
Manoulas called at our house. My
heart stood still as he came in, and
then bubbled over like a seething wine
vat when he asked to speak to me
alone. 'You are a good fellow, Kola,'
he began. Kallirhoe loves you, and
I wish to see you happy;' and I had
fallen on his neck and kissed him on
both cheeks eiThite he could say : 'Wait
a bit, young man; before you marry_
her you must get. together Justa little
money; I will be content with 1,000
drachmas (401). When you have that
to offer for Kallirhoe's dower you shall
be married.' 'A thousand drachmas!'
muttered I. 'May the God of the ra-
vens help me (an expression denot-
ing impossibility) and I burst into
tears." The men of modern Greece
when violently agitated cry as readily
as cunning Ulysses, and are not
ashamed of the fact.
"I remember well that evening,"
continued Nikola. "I left the house
as it was getting dusk, and climbed
down the ste;-) path to the sea. I
wandered for ours among the wild
mastic and the brushwood. My feet
refused to carry me home that night,
so I lay down on the floor in the little
white church dedicated to my patron
saint down the harbor, where we go
for our annual festival when the priest
blesses the waters and our boats.
Many's the time, as a lad, I've jumped
into the water to fetch out the cross
which the priest throws into the sea
with a stone tied to it on this occasion ;
and many's the time I've been the
lucky one to bring it up and get a few
coppers for my wetting. That night
I thought of tving a stone round my
own neck and jumping into the sea, so
that all traces of me might disappear.
"I could not make up my mind to
face any one all next day, so I wan-
dered among the rocks, scarcely re-
membering to feed myself on the few
olives I had in my pocket. I could
do nothing but sing The Little Caique,
which made me sob and feel better.
Toward evening I returned home.
My mother's anxious face told me
that she, too, had suffered during my
absence; and out of a pot of lentil

soup which was simmering on the em-
bers, she gave me a bowlful, and it re-
freshed me. To my dying day I shall
never forget my father's and brothers'
wrath. I had wilfully absented my-
:self for a whole day from my work.
I was called -?a peacock,' 'a burnt
man,' (equivalent to a fool) 'no man
at all,' horns,' and any other bad
name that occurred to them. For
days and weeks after this I was the
most miserable.,. down-trodden Greek
alive, and all on account of a woman."
And here Nikola came to a stop, and
ordered his wife to fetch him another
glass of raki to moisten his throat.
No Greek can talk or sing long with-
out a glass of raki.
"'About two months after these
events," began Nikola with renewed
vigor, "my father ordered me to clear
away a heap of stones which occupied
a corner of a little terrace-vineyard
we owned on a'slope near the church
of Episcopy. We always thought the
stone had been put there to support
the earth from falling from the terrace
above, but it lately occurred to my
father that it was only a heap of loose
stones which, had been cleared off the
field and thrown there when the vine-
yard was made, and the removal of
which would Wdd several square feet
+,- -hf-i moll h lrtmna N'ovt-. m .noni r

I started about an hour before the Pa-
nagia (Madonna) had opened the
gates of the East, with a mule and
panniers to remove the stones. I
worked hard enough when I got there,
for the morning was cold, and I was
beginning to find that the harder I
worked the less time I had for thought.
3Stone after stone was removed, pan-
nier-load after pannier-load was emp-
tied down the cliff, and fell rattling
in the brushwood, rousing the par-
tridges and crows as they fell. After
a couple of hours' work the mound
was rapidly disappearing, when I came
across something white projecting up-
ward. I looked at it closely; it was a
marble foot. More stones were re-
moved, and disclosed a marble leg, a
body, an arm, a head, another arm,
which had been broken off by the
weight of the stones, lay close by.
Though I was somewhat astonished at
the discovery, yet I did not suppose it
to be of any value. I had heard of
things of this kind being found before.
My father had an ugly bit of marble
which came out of a neighboring tomb.
However, I did not throw it over the
cliff with the other stones, but I put
it on one side and went on again with
my work.
"All day long my thoughts kept re-
verting to the statue. It was so very
lifelike--so different from the stiff,
ugly marble figures I had seen; and it
was so much larger, too, standing
nearly four feet high. Perhaps,
thought I, the Panagia has put it
hiere-perhaps it is a sacred, miracle-
working thing, such as the priests find
in spots like this. And then suddenly
I remembered how, when I was a boy,
a great German effendi had visited
Sikinos, and was reported to have dug
up and carried away with him price-
less treasures. Is this statue worth
anything? was the question which
haunted me all day, and which I
would have given ten years of my
young life to solve.
"When my day's work was over I
put the statue on to my mule, and
carefully covered it over, so that no
one might see what I had found; for
though I was hopelessly ignorant of
what the value of my discovery might
be, yet instinct prompted me to keep
it to myself. It was dark when I
reached the village, and I went
straight to the store, sorely perplexed
as to what to do with my treasure.
There was no time to bury it, for I
had met one of my brothers, who
would tell themni at home that I had
returned; so all in haste I hid the cold
white thing in the grain in the corner,
trusting that no one would find it, and
went home. I passed a wretched
night, dreaming and restless by turns.
Once I woke up in horror, and found
it difficult to dispel the effects of a
dream in which I had sold Kallirhoe
to a prince and married the statue by
mistake. And next day my heart
stood still when my father went down
to the store with me, shoved his hand
into the grain and muttered that we
must send it to the mill to be ground.
That very night I went out with a
spade and buried my treasure deep in
the ground under the straggling bran-
ches of our fig-tree, where I knew it
would not be likely to be disturbed.
Never was a poor fellow in such per-
plexity as I was, the possessor of a
marble woman whose value I could
not learn, and about whom I did not
care one straw, while I yearned after
a woman whose value I knew to be a

thousand drachmas, and whom I could
not buy. My hope, too, was rendered
more acute by the vague idea that
perhaps my treasure might prove to
be as valuable as Kallirhoe, and I
smiled to think of the folly of the man
who would be likely to prefer the cold
marble statue to my plump, warm
Kallirhoe. But they tell me that you
cold Northerners have hearts of mar-
ble, so I prayed to the Panagia and
all the saints to send some one who
would take the statue away, and give
me money enough to buy Kallirhoe.
I was much more lively now; my
father and brothers had no cause to
scold me any longer, for I had hope;
every evening now I went to the cafe
to talk, and all the energy of my ex-
istence was devoted to one object,
namely, to get the Demarch to tell me
all he knew about the chances of sell-
ing treasures in that big world where
the steamer went, without letting him
know that I had found anything.
After many fruitless efforts, one day
the Demarch told me how, in the old
Turkish days, before he was born, a
peasant of Melos had found a statue
of a woman called Aphrodite, just as I
had found mine, in a heap of stones;
that the peasant had got next to no-
thing for it, but that Mr. Brest, the
TiFrnoV b nnsi. mandea n. fnTfnno nnfe n'uo

it, and that now the statue was the
wonder of the Western world. By
degrees I learnt how relentless for-
eigners like you, Effendi, do swoop
down from time to time on these is-
lands and carry home what is worth
thousands of drachmas, after giving
next to nothing for them. A week or
two later I learnt from the Demarch's
lips how strict the Greek -governmenj
is, that no marble should leave the
country, and that they never give
anything like the value for the things
themselves, but that sometimes by
dealing with a foreign effendi in Ath-
ens good prices have been got and the
government eluded.
"Poor me! in those days my hopes
grew very, very small indeed. How
could I, an ignorant peasant, hope to
get any money from anybody? So I
thought less and less about my statue,
and more and more about Kallirhoe,
until my face grew haggard again, and
my mother sighed.
"My statue had been in her grave
nearly a year," laughed Nikola, "and
after the way of the world she was
nearly forgotten, when one day a
caique put in to Sikinos, and two for-
eign effendi-Franks, I believe-came
up to the town; they were the first
that had visited our rock since the
German who had opened the graves
on the hillside, and had carried off a
lot of gold and precious things. So
we all stared at them very hard, and
gathered in crowds around the De-
march's door to get a glimpse of them,
as they sat at the table. I was one of
the crowd, and as I looked at them I
thought of my buried statue, and my
hope flickered again.
"Very soon the report went about
Among us that they were miners from
Lurion, come to inspect our island
and see if we had anything valuable
in the way of minerals; and my father,
whose vision it had been .for years to
find a mine and make himself rich
thereby, was greatly excited, and off-
ered to lend the strangers his mules.
The old man was too infirm to go
himself, greatly to his regret, but he

sent me as a muleteer, with directions
to conduct the miners to certain points
of the island, and to watch narrowly
everything they picked up. Many
times during the day I was tempted
to tell them all about my statue and
my hopes, but I remembered what
the, Demarch had said about greedy
foreigners robbing poor islanders. So
I contented myself with asking all
sorts of questions about Athens; who
was the richest foreign effendi there,
and did he buy statues? what sort of
a thing was the custom, and should I,
who came from another part of Greece,
be subject to it if I went? I sighed
to go to Athens.
"Al! day I watched them closely,
noted what sort of stones they picked
up, noted their satisfaction or dissat-
isfaction, and as I watched them an
idea struck me-an idea which made
my heart leap and tremble with ex-
"That evening I told my father
some of those lies which hurt nobody,
and are therefore harmless, as the
priests say. I told him I had acquired
a great knowledge of stones that day,
that I knew where priceless minerals
were to be found; drew upon my ima-
gination about possible hidden stores
of gold and silver in our rocky Siki-
nos. I saw that I had touched the
right chord, for though he always
told us hard-working lads that an

olive with a kernel gives a boot to a
man, yet I felt sure that his inmost
ideas soared higher, and that he was,
like the rest of the Sikiniotes, deeply
imbued with the idea that mineral
treasures, if only they can be found,
would give a man more than boots.
From that day my mode of life
was changed. Instead of digging in
the fields and tending the vines I
wandered aimlessly about the island
collecting specimens of stones. I chose
them at random-those which had
some bright color in them were the
best-and every evening I added some
fresh specimens to my collection, which
were placed for safety in barrels in the
store. Don't say a word to the neigh-
bors, was my father's injunction; arid
I really believe they all thought my
reason was leaving me, or how else
could they account for my daily wan-
"In about a month's time I had
collected enough specimens for my
purpose, and then, with considerable
trepidation, one evening I disclosed
my plan to my father. 'Something
must be done with those specimens,' I
began; and as I said this I saw with
pleasure his old eyes sparkle as he
tried to look unconcerned.
"'Well, Kola, what is to be done
with. t.h em?"

A highly valued correspondent,
)f whose communication appears in
n our columns, addresses a number of
. ] pertinent inquiries to the Mirror,
e which we wish 'it \qas in our power
e to answer, relative -the Historical
Society o6f Florida, of which our
a correspondent was a most valuable
a member. We hope the ventilation
e of the subject will bring out the in-
Sformation he desires, and induce the
Sre-establishment upon a permanent
s footing of the Florida Historical
o Society with a large membership.
The approaching 'celebration at St.
SAugustine of the discovery of Flor-
r ida and the founding of St. Augus-
. tine ought to create a renewed inter-
. est in the preservation and publica-
tion of historical collections in which
our State is so i'icli.

We observe that some of our co-
temporaries draw the hasty infer-
ence that the Senate is about to for-
feit the land grant to the Florida
Transit Roads because Senator Van
Wyck of Nehniska has introduced
a resolution in the special session
and made a speech on it. The reso-
lution is entirely harmless, so far as
any action to result from it is con-
cerned, but is calculated to injure
the interests of the State by throw-
ing a cloud upon land titles, pre-,
venting: settlement in Florida. The
only effect the resolution and the
discussion can have is to keep the,
lands from being sold or occupied
by anybody, thus retarding the set-
tlement of the country.

Senator Phimb, Chairman of the
Committee on Public Lands, in the
debate on Mr.,Van Wyck's resolu-
tion, made some' very practical re-
marks upon the.introduction of such
a resolution in' an executive session.

Our community was greatly shock-
ed by the intelligence of the sudden
death atWashington, on the 16th inst.,
wife of the Hon. David L. Yulee.
The long residence of Mrs. Yulee in
our city, and the universal esteem in
which she was .held, make this be-
reavement felt as a personal loss to ]
us all. Gifted by nature with all the ]
.. *
qualities which adorn true woman- 1
hood; prominent in society for all J
those graces witich attract admira- ]
tion and respect, she was still more
eminent 'in the home circle and in ]
the private relations of life for her
kindliness of spirit, sweet courtesies a
to all in every rank of life, and for a
the unostentatious charity which ere- J
ates love and friendship between the J
giver and the recipient. Her home j

Sin this city during all her residence j
here was known for a hospitality
and kindness which was ever ex-
ternded-to the chance visitor and, in- I
vited guest withj equal grace and i
courtesy. In the religious body I
with which she was connected she I
labored faithfully, and among her L
last labors in its behalf were to se- M
cure for its minister a home, for A
which she gave an eligible lot.
No words which we can write can
soothe the hearts or fill the aching
void in the household of which she
was the honored mistress, the loving M
mother, and the devoted wife. The
sympathies of all are with Mr. Yulee
and his family in their so great an
Mrs. Yulee was the daughter of M
the Hon. Robert'Wickliffe, of Ken- M
tucky, Postmaster General under M
the administration of President'Polk.
She leaves one son, C. Wickliffe Yu- .
lee, and three daughters, Mrs. Chas.
H. Read, of Washington, and Misses

stained a bonus of alternate section
and 10,000 acres per mile.
The delay in the construction o
the Florida System, which Mr. Vai
Wyck's resolution, supported by Mr
Call, attacks, was attributable to th
war and its consequences upon th'
interests of Florida.
Mr. Call at least should have beer
able to defend the people of Florid
from these charges and sustained th,
enterprise of his own State. H(
blindly follows the Senator front
'Nebraska and champions the claim,
of persons who have just come int(
the State to get land for nothing, and
of railways which receive abou
14,000 acres per mile. If Senato]
Call thinks he is helping the inter
ests of Florida by attempting to for-
feit this grant of land he is greatly
mistaken. The people of Florida
do not recognize a petition signed by
John H. Simonton, or by 300 peo-
ple in any one county, as the voice
of the State. In view of the fact
that the Legislature of the State,
which was in session since the peti-
tion was signed, has taken no such ac-
tion the people will be apt to
think that Senator Call is, to say the
least, a little previous.
The people of Florida are prima-
rily interested in the completion of
the broad-gauge road to Tampa and
Charlotte Harbor, and will demand
justice for all interests involved. We
trust Mr. Call will see that he owes
to all interests equal and impartial
The city election is near at hand.
Our city is now in good condition
financially, and fairly so in a sanita-
ry point of view. Do our citizens
realize the great improvement going
on in the rest of the State, and espe-
cially the rapid strides made in the
interior towns ? Gainesville, Ocala,
Starke, Waldo, Palatka, Sanford, Or-
lando, Kissimmee and Tampa are
notable instances of remarkable ad-
vance in growth and prosperity.
Even St. Augustine, the ancient city,
is now putting forth a new growth
and increasing in population and
wealth. Fernandina is universally
admitted to be endowed by nature
with remarkable advantages of posi-
tion and of health and beauty of lo-
cation. It is admired by strangers
for the style of its buildings, its gen-
eral appearance of neatness and ele-
gance, and they wonder why it has
not a large growth and population.
We could readily give a satisfac-
tory explanation of the obstacles
which retarded its growth in the
past, but we do not now propose to
discuss the past. There is now nothing
to retard its rapid development and
growth. On the contrary, everything
is favorable, and those who now, ap-

predciating its advantages, take hold
of its interests will meet with great
SWe all are interested in a good city
government. Why cannot we unite
in placing in office for our city officers
able, efficient, public-spirited citi-
zens, who will give their time and,
thought to the public interests. Let
no good man decline the office; let
no good citizen refuse to support good
nominations and we shall all be ben-
efited. Let us unite on the best men
for the City Council, irrespective of
political party lines of division and
go in for a good, effective, and pro-
gressive city government.

We have read with much atten-
-tion the full report of the debate on
Mr. Van Wyck's resolution. We
Expressed our surprise last week at
the utterly irrelevant character of
the resolution in an Executive ses-
--sion of the Senate, and the whole
Proceedings appeared to us entirely
e*ut of place. For reasons best known
to himself Senator Call has seen fit
to discuss a matter which cannot
possibly be acted upon in this Ex-
,,ecutive session of Congress, and to
:assault the railway company now
engaged in constructing one of the
most important broad-gauge rail-
,roads in the State.
In 1854 the State of Florida
-adopted a system of railway im-
provements to be aided by the State,
based upon a report of the Board of
Internal Improvement, which con-
Ssisted of David L. Yulee, James T.
,Archer, Richard H. Long, A. S. Bald-
win and John C. Pelot. The system
thus recommended for aid consisted
"of a railroad between the waters of
-Escambia Bay and the St. Johns
:river at Jacksonville, with an exten-
sion from some suitable points on
.the line to the waters of St. Andrews
*Bay, in West Florida, and the St.
Marks River, in Middle Florida, and
from Amelia Island, on the Atlantic,
to the waters of Tampa Bay, in South
Florida, with an extension to Cedar
Key, in East Florida; and also a
canal to connect the Indian River
:with the St. Johns."
-Florida then had no capital or
means of building railroads; but un-
der the plan devised by the Board
Ahe system thus sketched out was in
less than six years the means of
,building a first-class railroad from
Quincy to Jacksonville, a distance
,,of 185 miles; and from Amelia Is-
land to Cedar Key, 155 miles, reach-
ing the more immediate wants of
the best populated portions of the
,.State. The road was also graded'
from Waldo to Ocala in the direc-
tion of Tampa, and would have been
completed to that point but for an
.interference with that plan by per-
sons in power. During the four
-years of hostilities the roads were, of
course, going to decay, and a part of
'the iron on the road between Fer-
nandina and Cedar Key was remov-
ed, the rolling stock was run down,
and bridges and trestles decayed.
Neither the railroad companies nor
the people were in a condition to do
:much toward the restoration of the
::roads, much less to immediately go
<,on with the extension of the roads
to carry out the system adopted.
Tlh first extension made was by the
Florida Transit in the direction of
Tampa, and 53 miles of new road
were built to Ocala and put in ope-
* ration at once, giving impetus to the

:settlement and prosperity of that
portion of the State, and the engi-
neer proceeded to stake out the line
for the extension to Tampa. It was
not until the period when the impe-
tus was given already by our own
companies that organizations from
wMithout the State came in and pro- ]

William S. Rawson, deceased; and all cred-
itors of said estate, legatees and persons enr
titled to distribution are notified to present
their claims and demands, duly attested,
within two years from this date, and that
the same will be barred unless exhibited
within said period afo-resai-d.
Estateof William S. Rawson, dec'd.
Fernandina, Fla., February 7,1884. 6w

, "Mother spilt a jug of water on the
t1ifeshold, as an earnest of success and
a happy return. My father and'mfy
brothers came down to the. store to
help me pub the box on the mule's
back, andi greatly they murmured at
the weight thereof. 'There's gold
there,' muttered my father beneath
his breath. 'Kola will be a prince
some day,' growled my eldest brother
jealously, and I promised, to make
him Eparch of Santorin or Demarch
of Sikinos if he liked that better.
The bustle of the' journey hardly
gave me a moment for thought. I
was very ill crossing over in the caique
for los, during which time my coward-
ice came over me again, and I won-
dered if Kallirhoe was worth all the
trouble I was taking; but I was lost
in astonishment at the steamer-so as-
tonished that I had no time to be
sick, so I was able to eat some olives
that evening, and as I lay on my mat-
tress on the steamer's deck as we hur-
ried on, toward the Piraeus, I pondered
over what I should do on reaching
"You know what the Pira.us is
like, Effendi?" continued Nikola, after
a final pause and a final glass of raki;
what a city it is, what- bustle and
rushing to and fro ?"
I had not the heart to tell him that
in England inany a fishing village is
.larger, and the scene of greater excite-
' "They all laughed at me for my
heavy box, my island accent, my
island dress, and if it had not been
for a kind pallikari I had met on the
steamer, I think I should have gone
mad. The officers of the custom-
house were, walking about on the quay
peering suspiciously into' the luggage
of the newly arrived, and naturally
my heavy box excited their suspicions.
Iwas prepared for some difficulty of
the kind, and the agony of my inter-
view quite dispelled my confusion.
"What hare you there.?"
"Specimens," I replied.
"Specimens of what?"
"Specimens of minerals for the eff-
endi at Laurium."
"' Open the box !' And in an agony
of fright, I saw them tear off the lid of
my treasure and dive their hands into
its contents.
Stones!' said one official.
Worthless stones !' sneered ano-
ther, 'let the fool go;' and with scant
ceremony they threw the stones back
into the box, and shoved me and my
box away with a curse.
"I was now free to go wheresoever
I wished, and with the aid of my
friend I found a room into which I
put my box, and as I turned the key,
and sallied forth on my uncertain er-
rand, I prayed to the Panagia Odege-
tria to guide my footsteps aright.
'"The next few days were a period
of intense anxiety for me. In subdued
whispers I communicated .to the con-
suls of each nation the existence of my
treasure. One had the impudence to
offer me only 200 drachmas for it, an-
other 300, another 400, another 500;
th'-,n each came again, advancing 100
drachmas on their former bids, and so
my spirits rose, until at last a grand
effendi came down from Athens, and
without hesitation offered me 1,000
,1,a.r;'l .:i,,s. 'Give me fifty more for
the trouble of bringing it and you
shall have it,' said I, breathless with'
excitement, 'and in 'five minutes the
long-coveted money was in my hands.
My old father was very wroth

^ -~ .H
when I returned to Sikinos, and when
he I>-arnt that I had done nothing
with my specimens. The, brightness
had gone out of his eyes; he was more
qpprobious than ever, but I:cared no-.
tihig, for what ,he .sa id. ly'momthelf
had her cheesecakes on Easter Sun-
day, and on that very day Kallirhoe'
and I were crowned.-."
--Thus ended NikolaIs- romance. If
ever I go to St. Petersburg I shall
:1.-:,k carefully for Nikola's statue in
the Hperm-itage collection, which I un-
derItand, was its destination.-The
(- ,T m:an.'s 3-igazine.

"Tiose Blinding Headaches--
I kn._,w wli.ht they mean ; ever since I can

said M,'-. J. Nichols, of Rochester, N. Y. I
.-,uld understand what the author meant
when he siid : 'Life is sometimes not worth
living.' 'By the m nerest chance I heard of
Dr. vid Kenned' .,! *. I
tested -its virtues, and it truly wa ke .

To Keep the Blood Pure is. the l l

in medicine. To this object probably no one
has contributed more s=i -ally than Dr. Da-

production of a rnedicine which has become
famous until the title of-the "Favorite Rem-
edy," 'It removes all impurities of thle -------

Kidneys, cures Constipation, Dyspepsia and
all diseases and weaknesses peculiar to fe- ..

"Simply this, father. I must take
them to Athens or La.urion, and get
money down for showing the effendi
where the mines are.. We can't work
them ourselves.
"' To Athens or Laurionr!' exclaimed
my father, breathless at the bare men-
tion of so stupendous a journey..
"Of course I must." I added laugh-
ing, though secretly terrified lest he
should flatly refuse to let me go, and
before I went to bed that night my
father promised to give me ten drach-
mas for my..expenses. .'Only take a
few of your specimens, Kola; keep the
best back;' for my father is a shrewd
man, though he has never left Sikinos.
But on this point I was determined,
and would take all or none, so my.
father grumbled and called me a 'pea-
cock.' but for this I did not care.
"Next day I ordered a box for my
specimens. '"Why not. take them in
the old barrels?' growled my father,.
But I said they might get broken, and
the specimens inside be seen. So at
last a wooden box, just,.four feet long
and two feet high, was got ready-not
without, difficulty either, for wood in
Sikinos is rarer than quails at Christ-
mas, and my father grumbled not a
little at the sum he had to pay for it-
more than half the proceeds of his vin-
tage, poor man! And when I thought
how my mother might not be able to
inake any cheesecakes at Easter-the.
pride of her heart, poor thing!-I
almost regretted the game I was play-
ing "
The Easter cheesecakes of the island
are what they profess to be; cheese,
curd, saffron' arid flour being the chief
ingredients. They are reckoned an
essential luxury at that time. of the
year, and some houses make as many
as sixty. It is a sign of great poverty
and deprivation when none are made.
"The caique was .-to 'leave. next
morning if the wind was favorable, for
Ios, where the steamer would touch
on the following day, and take me on
my wild, uncertain journey. I don't
think I can be called a coward for
feeling nervous on this occasion. I
admit that it was only by thinking
'steadfastly about Kallirhoe that I
could screw up my courage. When it
was quite dark I.took the wooden key
of the 'store, and, as carelessly as I
could, said I was going to pack my.
specimens. My brothers volunteered
to come and help me, for they were all
mighty civil now it became known
that I was bound for Athens to make
heaps of money, but I refused their
help with a surly 'good-night,' and
set off into the darkness alone with
my spade. I was horribly nervous as
I went along; I.thought I saw a Ne-
reid or a Lamia in every olive tree.
At the least rustle I thought they
were swooping down 'upon me, and
would carry me off into the air, and I
should be made to marry one of those
terrible creatures and live in a mroun-
thin cavern, which would be worse
than losing Kallirhoe ,tl,,-ethle,'; but
St. Nikolas and the Panagia helped
me, anl I dug my -t.,tue up without
molestation. ..
She w.-. a great weight to carry-
all by my elf, but at. 1"t I got her
into .her new ,:.,:,iT;, wecl;.;dg , her in,
