St. Andrews. A man by the name
of Kitig had been to Apalachicola
and was returning to St. Andrews,
having his gun upon his shoulder
and a roll of calico upon his back.
King passed old Job had his son, a
boy about sixteen years of age and
spoke to them as he passed. It ih
supposed that Joe wanted that roll
of calico, for when King was a short
distance from him he fired at him and
the ball struck the roll of cloth and

threw him to the ground but Joe got
on top; King rose with him and
threw him again. About this time
old Joe's son ran up and Joe said,
"thwalkla;" the boy turned and ran.
King found Joe's strength was fail-
ing, 96 disengaged himself and took,
to his heels. Some days after, King
and some companions returned to the
scene of conflict and found Joe a few
paces from where King had left him,
dead. No vestige of his family was


to be found, an


one knew whith-


er they had gone. King's knife had
penetrated to Joe's brain. A year
later the skeleton of Chief Joe was'
carefully gathered and taken to Ire-
land, and now stands in a glass case
in the museum of the University at
Dublin, marked, "Seminole Indian
Chief Joe. Presentel by Mr. Ed-

waster of the sloop applied for board

ed to be the party to whom the mail

dressed.
Before the month expired Mr.
Blood concluded to remain another
month, and one of Major Armstead's
daughters had namtnd the black-coat-
ed sloop' "Widow," and dubbed the
owner, "Captain." No small boat
ever sailed the waters of St. Andrews
Bay, or resident upon its beach be-
came more widely known than the
Widow, and Captain Blood. It was
my good fortune to become intimate-
ly acquainted with Capt. Biood, for
his visit of one month lengthened in-
to twelve years. Taken "by and
large" he was the completes man I
have ever known. He was about six
feet three inches tall, broad-chested.
no surplus flesh; indeed, physical per-
fection. He was a fine scholar, flu.
ent in French and acquainted with
other languages. He seemed to have
read everything, to have been every-
where, and to have personally in-
spected all that there was worth see-
ing in Earope, England and America.
He lwan a skillful workman in copper,
iron and wood, and had tools of all
kinds. He had philosophical instru-
ments, chemical apparatus of every
. description, was a keen sportsman
and had every gun from an air gun
to a cannon and mort;.r.
So enthnsed he became with St.
Andrews that he bought two lots
next beyond where Governor Clark iq
buried, and built thereon a very
unique house. I should like to de-
scribet hat house, but for the space
it would take.
He told me that he had lived all
about the Mediterranean, France
England. and all along the Atlantic
coast of the United States: on the
West India islands. Key West, Mo-
bile, New Orleans, etc., and nowhere
had he. l'ond a place equal in beauty,
better foir leltei, or comparable foi

The superintendent looked at the tick-
et and replied:
"This was originally sold in New
York, and is the form used by the Nor-
wich line of steamers. But your man
may have bought this half of the ticket
from a scalper in Worcester."
Mr. Barnes thanked the superintend-
ent and left the office.

CHAPTER XV.
MR. BARNES ON HIS METrT= .
Mr. Barnes and Virginia returned to
Riverside farm. reaching there just as
the people were assembling for the fu-
neral services. The squire greeted Vir-
einia cordially and looked interrogative-
Ty at Mr. Barnes, evidently a little con-
fused at seeing them together. Virginia
hastened to explain.
"Squire, I hope you will be glad to
hear that Mr. Barnes is now working in
my interests? He does not believe that '
Walter is guilty."
"Is that true?" said the squire, quick-
ly interested. "I am glad to hear it, for,
though Burrows seems to have made
out a complete chain of evidence, if .
you, Mr. Barnes, with your experience, I
are unconvinced, there must be a weak
spot in it., Tell me, how is it?"
"Mr. Burrows is mistaken," said
Mr. Barnes. "His evidence is all good
and most important. His deductions, ,
however, are incorrect. As you say,
there is a flaw. I pointed it out to him,
but he is obstinate and refuses to see it. '
He cannot convict Marvel without prov- i
ing that Miss Lewis here was an ac-
complioe after the fact if not before."
"God forbid that he should do that."
"I was afraid that he would have
brought out this point before the grand
jury, and that Miss Lewis as a cOase
quence would have been still In prison.
That be has not done so shows that be
secretly fears that he could not sustain
the charge."
"Well, but do you think you can
clear Marvel? If so, who did kill Lew-
is?"
"Your last query is a hard one to
answer, but I must do so if I am to
prove Marvel's innocence. All I can
any now is that I hope to accomplish
that. Now, I wish to see the body
again. Will you come with me?"
The squire and the detective moved
toward the parlor, where was the casket
containing the remains. Virginia went
to her own room. The two men stood
beside the coffin a moment in silence,
Mr. Barnes gazed intently at the ob r-
red face, bandaged in silk handkerchiefs
to conceal the disfigurement, and the
squire wondered of what he was think-
ing. In truth Mr. Barnes scarcely knew
himself. He had a dimly defined idea
within his mind and was awaiting its
development. Presently his eyes wan-
dered down to where the crossed arms
of the corpse lay upon the breast, and
he noted the diamond ring.
"Btquire," said he, "I think a mis-
take will be made if we do not inter-
fere. "
"What do you mean?"
"There is a ring on the finger of the
corpse. It should not be buried."
"Why not?"
"Because the man was murdered, and
anything connected with the body may
become an article of value as evidence
of some kind."
"How can a ring amount td any-,
thing?"
"I don't say it will, but it may. We
detectives, as you know, are cautious,
and I should be indebted if you will re-
move it."
"Oh, certainly, if you specially wish
it!" The squire removed the ring with
some difficulty.
'I wish, squire, that you would keep
that yoursaclf. Should anything occur
which will make it useful to me, I
shall know where to get it."
"Yes, I will keep it, and it shall not
leave my possession unless I let you'
know first."
"I thank you, but may I look at it
sow for a moment?" i
"Certainly." The squire handed it
to him. Mr. Barnes examined it close-
ly, and, noticing an inscription on the
inside of the band, went to the light to
decipher it. It proved to be "W. to M."
The detective started and muttered,
"The same initials as were on the lock.
et!" Then, returning the ring to the
squire, he asked:
"Have yon that locket? Though that
ia a foolish question, as I suppose you
gave it to the authorities at Dover, with
the other things in evidence."
"Yet They were given tp yester-
day."
"I wonder," thought the detective,


"if I have made a mistake. I may wish b
to see that locket once more, and I must I
question Miss Lewis." !
At this moment the minister arrived,
and the ceremonies commenced. John
Lewis came in with him, and then
went to call Virginia, but she declined
to leave her room. At this there was
little surprise, for what girl would care
to show herself Wefore so many people
after such au experience? The service
was brief, the main point in the dis-
course being to impress upon the mind
of those present the transitoriness of

policy and wisdom of so arranging
earthly affairs that one might be ready
to answer the call at any time. While
the worthy man spoke nothing but
truth, it is doubtful if any of his hearers
even so much as made his will -the
next day, so far off do most men feel
from death.
The body was interred in a private
c&netery belonging to the estate, situ-
ated at one7 end of the farm, near a
growth of timber land. After the funeral
the people dispersed.
Mr. Barnes approached Will Everly
as he was about to leave and said:
"Do you remember me, Mr. Everly?"
"Certainly; you are Mr. Barnes. Miss
Lewis tells me that you are now devoted
to the interests of Mr. Marvel. Is that
true?"
"It is, and now I wish to intrust to
you an trrand that may serve him. Will
you undertake it?"
"Juit give me a chance."
"Iave you a fast horse?"
"I have, and can get a faster if there
bL any need."
"What I wish done is very simple,
but it must be done withoutdelay, for I
wish to have word-tonight, as I shall be
obliged to leave hbre totuorrow."
"I can go where you wish-at once."
"Go then to Dover and hunt-up the
olerk of the court. His name is Ain-
ile y *' ',-
"I know him very well, and where to
fBud him."
"All the better. See him, and tell
him that you wish to look at the locket
which has played so conspicuonS a part
in this case. If he has not the custody
of it, he will be able to take you to the
one whlo has. See th0 locket tonight, it
possible. Look on the outside and find
out what the inscription is, whether it
is'W. M.' or'W. to M.' The word 'to,'
If on the trinket, will save your friend's
life. Lose no tin,."
Every needed no second bidding, but
was off on a run at once. Mr. Barnes
seemed satisfied, and turned into the
bouse. Here be found Lucas and poke
to him. .
"This is a Had business, Mr. Luaa.O"
"Indeed it i& I would gladly take the
place of the prisoner for the sake of his
sister, if not of himself."
"Miss Marvel .has passed through si
trying ordeal. Howis shenow?"
"She is vey ill. Of course she was

-Taxes for the year 1897 are now
due and will become delinquent April
1, 1898, unless the time for payment is


extended before that time, which it is
not likely to be. All those who expect
the BUOY- to attend to the payment of
same are advised to make certain that
they have a credit on our tax book
sufficient to meet the amount, which
will mean that the t'ax l certainly be
paid, as heretofore; ibut if such credit
is not shown, even though the amount
seems insignificant, they just as cer-
tainly will not be paid unless some sue-
cial arrangement is made to that end.
The tax this year is 17J mills, as com-
pared with 121 mills last year; hence
in providing for payment this year, add
about 33 per cent., or one-third more
than the amount shown upon your re-
ceipt for 1896. This notice shall be
deemed sufficient for all patrons of the
Buoo who wish it to attend to the pay-
ment of their taxes.
-It is probable that most readers of
the Buoy will remember the Corn Fair
which was held at Pensacola last sum-
mer, and the great furore which it cre-
ated .among farmers throughout the
south. The variety of corn exhibited
was the Iowa Silver Mine, though it is
frequently referred to as the Chipley
Corn, owing to the fact that the late
Mr. Chipley introduced it in Florida.
It has produced most wonderful crops
in various parts of the country the past
season, the largest one which we have
noticed being 211 bushels per acre in
Indiana. Two crops of this corn can
be piodoced on the same land in the
southern states, as it matures very
early. That our readers may see the
character ef this corn, the lows Seed
Co. of Des Moines, has consented to

it, provided they mentionthis-paper in

Teller's Bill Killed.
The most notable recent event in
congress, if not indeed of the entire
session is the defeat in the house of
representatives, by a vote of 132 to 182
of Teller's resolution declaring the
bonds of the United States payable
in silver. The republicans with two
exceptions-Mr. Linney, of North
Carolina, who voted for the measure,
and Mr. White, also of North Caro-
lina. who answered "present" when
his name was called, voted against it,
The democrats who voted "no,"
were Messrs. McAleer of Pennsylva-
nia and Mr. Elliott of South Caro-
lina.
Speaket Reed, altliongl it is notL
customary for him to vote, had hi.
name called, and amid the cheers of
his followers went on record in oppo-
sition to the resolution.
It is admitted that the vote is an
index to the 1900 campaign program

-The children of the St. Andrews
public school, under the direction of
their teachers observed Arbor Day by
planting out numerous trees, with ap-

proved if some system of instruction at-
tended the planting that would in a
measure insure the life of the trees.
As it is, probably not one tree in a
thousand survives the first season. It
is certainly well to encourage th? youth
of the land to plant trses; but if they
could in the meantime be taught how
to plant them, how much better would
be the results

"Look here, Bill," began the man-

of this deal:?
"Just fair agese" replied Bill. "I
think I got about $600 off the four
stages, and that's nothing to brag about.
Some of the boys on the other lines are
raising $1,000 at a clip. It's a poor lot
of passengers you are sending out, colo-

the innkeeper each have a bit of wood

Wtle of "Arabian Nights."
The late Sir Richard Burton's trans-
lation of the "Arabian Nights"' was
sold qut in ten days and brought $80,-

loyally for five years. At his death but

wave of Feb. 1, was 28 degrees, and
can well afford to sympathize with
their less fortunate fellow-beings who
had to endure the raging elements as
described in the following New York
dispatch of that dite:
The storing which began Sunday
night swept over New York with
great fury and today was central in
twe New England States. Northern
New .ork is snow-biund. Business
has bcet, at a stand-till in many of
the smaller towns, with wires down,
trains blocked, and railway traffic
great ly impeded.
The "up state" residents have
suffered from the cold, which ranged
as low as 20 degrees and more below
zero. At, Uuiy. Tinj, Sitsp.uga,
atid ifiany Mt.'er places ill the state
as much sl two and three feet of snow
has fil'en, and reports are to the ef-
fect that the blizzard is still raging,
the worst storm since the memorable
one of 1888. Citizens of New York
city have had to battle their way to
business against a gale of wind that
at times swept along at forty miles
an hour and carried drifts of snow
with it.
Officer Dunn of the Meteorological
depaitmtent, tonight said the mercury
is going dov n lower. Great delay
was caused to the railway mail ser-
vice; that from the northern part of
the state has been practically cut off
and trains on the New York Central
were four hours late. From 10,000
to 12,000 men have been at work,
with thousands of teams, carting
away the snow, but still there is no
apipreciable effect of their work to be
seen.
The east end of Long Island has
been. blockaded by the drifting snow.
The Long Ibland railway was com-
pletely covered today. Snow plows
driven by the most powerful engines
(i t(lie road are now battling with the
S4hOW.

Progress In Modern Athens.,
The progress of the modern capital of
Greece will not astonish American read-
ers, but Athens in no way resembles
New York or Chicago, nor is Greece
America. Between the two countries
there is no point of comparison whatso-
ever. The Americans, springing from
and connected with a powerful European
nation, began their career with all the
advantages and few of the drawbacks of
civilization. They had only to confront
the physical obstacles to their possession
of the extensive territories which at-
tracted and rewarded their enlightened
energy, and immigration accelerated
the formation of a glorious common-
wealth. The Greeks, emerging from
ages of debasing serfdom, had no politi-
cal or social or intellectual preparation
for the work of regeneration. After hav-
ing achieved by dint of desperate efforts
the independence of a part only of their
land and race they had to undergo a
series of revolutions before settling
down into an organized body politic.
Moreover, the belief that the national
unity is not yet complete has tended,
and long may tend, to retard the work
of internal development. Neither these
considerations, nor the fact that the
whole country was a scene of desolation
at the close of the war of independence,
must be lost sight of in forming a judg-
ment as to the progress thus far effect-
ed.-D. Bikelas in Century.

Deer In London.
Deer thrive and multiply in London.
A year or two ago a few of these ani-
mals were presented to the county coun-
oil with a request that they should be
kept in Oliissold park. So quickly did
the deer multiply that it was presently
found possible to transfer a number ot
them to Victoria park, 'And flrther
thinning out has been found necessary.

Jailkwon'a Protection Prophecy.
The corporations and wealthy indi.
viduals who are engaged in large man-
ufacturing establishments desire a high
tariff to increase their gains. Design-
ing politicians will support it to concil-
iate their favor and to obtain the means
for profase expenditure for the purpose
of purchasing influence in other quar-
ters. Do not allow yourselves, my fel-"
low.citizens, to be misled in this sub;
ject. It is a system of injustice, and it
persisted in will lead to corruption and,
must end in ruin.-Andrew Jackson ini

With bright roman candles and pinwheels and
Rockets, ;"'S Oftt us the fourth of.March I"
say I. . 0
We have plenty of fireworks on March ftr
And lk1krise a great inr,:ny things more.. :-
It was sim ply glorious th..t parade to view,
Gayly tripping down the avenue,
A fitting tribute to a president's powers.
To pass a given point took it several hours.
They were marching purely for love of their
native land,
All except a few who play in the band.
But business is business, as we all understand.
There was an audience from all parts of the
nation,
Hundreds of thousands at the lowest calcula-
tion,
And it must have done those president's heart'
good
To realize that each would
Hold office if he could.
"They comet They comel"-hoar the joyous-
shout-
Some with whiskers and some without.
Think of all those gallant men in line,
And yet I am nobody's valentine.
But more than the doings out in the street
I love to witness the joy complete
Where on the sidewalk, like merry elves.
Folks hustle around and enjoy themselves,
Only I did occasionally wish the police
Could stop some of the noises, so that we could
have peace.
But, alas, this life was always sol
No pleasure did we ever know
But what there happened something or other
That made it different from what you'd rather.

The "Book of Advertisement" would,
at the present day, mislead most read-
ers by its title. It was prepared at
the command of Queen Elizabeth and
printed in 1565. The purpose of the
book was to-dcfine the doctrines, disci-
pline and ritual of the English church,
so that uniformity should be secured in
Great Britain. This book was the di-
rect origin of a denominational title in
England, for, after its publication,
Sampson, dean of Christ church, in Ox-
ford, and Humphrey, professor of divin-
ity at Oxford university, with others,
dissented from some of the doctrines it
contained; hence they Were called non-
conformists.

SHERIDAN'S BEST SPEECH.
A Newspaper Man Tells the Circumstanwee
of When It Was Made.
"The last time General Phil Sheridan
was in Milwaukee," said Bob Howard,
the newspaper man, "was when the
Army of the Cumberland held its an-
nual reunion here in 1882. A banquet
was given the association at the Na-
tional home. General Sheridan presided.
In his opening speech he was puzzled for
words, but after a fashion he managed
to stammer out something that but few
heard and less understood. I was report-
fpg the event for The Sentinel and had
taken down everything Sheridan said
just as he spoke it. When he got through,
he came around to see me and said,
"Look here, Mr. Reporter, do you want
fo please me?"
''Deed, 1 do, general.'
'Then please don't print any of that
d--d slush of mine. Just make up a
nice little speech for me.' "
Howard made up a dainty little speech I
for the commander,.pf the American
army, which greatly pglased him.
A few years later when. t e .ais on


duty at. Washibgton, t~owart'i ,,ti
frequently took him to bea.quarters,
and he always met a hearty welcome.
The first time he called' Sheridan said:
"Oh, yes, I remember youl YQu are the
man who made fhaf nice seb for'm .'
in Milwaukee."
On several occasions ib ihttdioled

C o xxxp any .


INCORPORATED OCT. 13. 1897.

The purpose of this Company is to Improve the Country adjacent toS t
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
Y anomplish this the Company proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
nud-a.half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Nre*tion of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
vale of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every su.'h tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.


Ab TO RELIABILITY OF


THE COMPANY


The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Com-
pany reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Company
to make improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Company shall satisfacto-
tily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
The Company will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping, guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
ftr damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Audrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price ofiana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'oat ofplanting 1st
ar, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafler,$20,O
' It is not extravagant to estimate that a I-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit and of peaches nearly or quite
'the same, while fia should do even better than that. Then, thongh perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japai. chestnuts, pecans, and a.any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
ge almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
eldered certain yield large returns oftener than they miss
The Secretary of the Company will give particular attention to an-
eirlnagrletters of inquiry, and the Buor will in its answers to correspondents an-
ever all questions asked it.
R E M E M B E R the Company Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must he paid for as satisfactory proof is given

of opening the door ot their domicile,

Wolseley's Close Call
On one occasion Lord Wolseley's life
was saved by Prince Victor of IIohen-
lohe, known as Count Gleichen. It was
in the Crimea, when young Wolseley,
badly wounded, was passed by the sur-
geon as dead. Undisturbed by the sur-
geon's remarks, Prince Victor tried to
extract a jagged piece of stone which
was sticking in the wound, and the
prince succeeded in restoring Wolseley,

poured down his throatr-ad aiTore as-

was dead, he sat up and exclaimed4'No
