WASHINGTON, April 9. Congress
gave an exhibition of rapid transit
legislation, as well as of the touch of
nature which makes the whole world
kin. when it broke all previous record-,
in making an appropriation of $200,0A)
for the relief of the sufferers from the
floods in the Missi,-ip|pi river and its
tributaries and in the Red River of the
North. Inside of two hours Pireident
McKinley's special message, bettiug
forth the urgent need of help for the
'llood sufferers, was read in both House
.'and Senate, the resolution una,ni-
muu.Nly adopted, signed by the Presi-
dent, and the money made available
for present use.

We do not want t to be under-

altogether. We believe that there
will be education aud intelligence
enough growing out of this con-
troversy to enable- the people to
retrulate the volume of money,'
whether they use metal money uor
paper money. The best money_
in the country is that mouey,
which is a full legal tender iou.
all debts, public and private; The
people must pay dcbts and taxes.-
and the money that is "clothed
with the monopoly of pirformin g,
these functions is the best money
in the country, and the valu,:
of each. dollar or each uuit of
m money will depend upon the nLamLfiUer
of dollars or nuits as compared witrt
poputlatiou arid bLlsi.ness. It is ot s-.
very material as to: the arnouniit -of

Leon CounLy-lts. Advantages.
The lands of Leon county,
and especially those adjacent
t,, Lake Hall, are surely a
paradise for the farmer.
They are of a rich, sandy
nature, but in some portions
are considerably streaked
with a very productive dark
loam, which is well watered
and timbered. This land
yields abundantly in hay,
corn, rye,' oats, cotton,'su-
gar cane, sweet potatoes,
Irish potatoes, tomatoes,
and. all kids of vegetables,
rice, tobacco, figs, grapes,
pears, peaches, peanuts,.pe-
c-ans, mnelcons, and every other
fruit-except oranges- and
frtiits of the tropics.

tv and intelligent farmer that
the.e lands will. never wear

ble nature, and those which
have been in cultivation for
irearly half a century ar:e
more productive-1 today thanI
ever, although n fertilizer o0

an extremely intelligent class
