time, orat least long enough to beof no
practical value to Walter Marvel.
The detective saw that he had almost
a hopeless task to make this river yield
up its secret, if indeed it held one.
However, he was not a man easily
daunted by obstacles, and be deter-
mined to make an attempt that night.
He chose the night for his experiment,
deeming it wisest to make the condi-
tions as nearly as possible similar to
those under which the accused had act-
ed. He thought that the currents among
these rocks might be different at night,
as then the mills would not be working.
He closely examined the dam and con-
ceived a new idea. The dam was made
of wood, and as its construction must
be clear to you in order that you may
understand the course pursued by Mr.
Barnes it becomes necessary to describe
The bridge is about 100 feet south of
the point where the water goes over the
dam. Standing on this bridge, one no-
tices a smooth body of water flowing
toward the place where it rushed over
the dam, but he forms no idea of the
power of the current from this point of
view. On the line where the stream
dashes downward he sees some boards
projectiug above the surface from each
side of, the river toward the center for
a distaooe equal to one-quarter of the
width of the stream. Between these
points where the dam rises above the
level the water rushes over the dam,
which is two feet lower along the center
than at the sides. Going below the dam
-that is, to the north of it-one easi-
ly sees how it is constructed. Immense
triangles of timber are laid afilong the
rooks, resting on the short ides. Thus
their hypotenuses face tftR south, and
on them are nailed the boards which
form the dam. Therefore, as the water
rushes over, there is a space under the
dam where it is comparatively dry-at
least, no great amount of water finds its
way there, as only what leaks throagli
drips down.
It was while looking at this space
that the new idea occurred to the de-
tective. In order to turn the mill wheels,
sluices are built which condu. -'the wa-
ter in the desired direction. \\-u these
are open, it is evident that a st. g cur-
rent sets in the direction of tli\ mill.
This is so powerful and there is such a
suction downward that objects on the
surface would be drawn below and car-
ried into the mill, were it not that the
sluice gates are furnished with gratings
to keep out such jetsam. Studying this
point, it became evident to the detective
that if the sluices were open on Sunday
night, the bundle of clothing must be
looked for at these gratings.
He therefore went to the mill and
asked for the man who had the care of
the sluices. From him he learned that
they had been closed on the eight of the
murder, and then persuaded him to
have them closed this evening also, so
that the conditions might be the same.
Leaving the vicinity of the mill, he
went back to Riverside and enjoyed his
supper with Miss Lewis. After the
meal he said:
"Where is Mr. Lewis? Is he not stay-
ing here?"
"He accepted an invitation to visit
the squire tonight."

His companions listened with much
interest. He continued: "I will now
commence my experiment. Fortunately
the moon is bright and we can see easi-
ly. First, I will take a piece of wood."
He looked about and soon found a
large, heavy piece of timber near the
sawmill. Approaching the rail he said,
"Now I will throw this over, and you

--Taxes for the year 1897 are now
due and will become delinquent April
1, 1898, unless the time for payment is
-zextended 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 tax will certainly be
paN,, as heretofore; but 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 171 mills, as com-
pared with 12* 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
BuooY who wish it toattendto the nav.

save his home near the head of Watson

from her present home at Redwood
Falls, Minnesota, to a friend here of a
distressing accident which befell her
son, Byron, some time ago. BI3yron, it
seems, with two other boys was going
upon an errand and had with them a
gun heavily loaded, with powd 'r, only.
Through boyish carelessnes the gun
was discharged, the muzzle pointing
directly at the right side of Byron's
face, and ha but \ voor three feet away.
His right eye, ear and face was filled
with powder, and a frightful gash torn
in his nose. It was at first thought the
sight of his eye was ruined, but after
eight weeks of careful nursing he could,
with it distinguish a lighted lamp in
the room. and now it is hoped the nmem-
ber ma be saved. Mlrs. Lu.isk and B;,-

Wilkes boldly offered himself as a

scenes of that election beggar descrip-

One incident is too amusing to escape
repetition. The Austrian ambassador,
the Graf von Seilern, most solemn
and haughty of the representatives of a
solemn court, was dragged from his car-
riage by the mob and "'45" chalked on
the soles of his boots. His constantly
reiterated demands for reparation,.
which it was impossible to satisfy, only
made him the more ridiculous. "Wilkes
and Liberty" was the oie :topic of the'
day in letters and conversation. Hias
head was even adopted as.: a sign for
public houses, and he himself told the
story of the old lady who said, "There
he swings, everywhere but where ho
ought to be."-Cornhill Magazine.

Cultuired Tramps From Boston.
"Tramps in Boston are Ly far the
most intelligent and molest of their
kind," said a native of the baked bean
city, "maybe because of their culture
(?). My experience with one of .these
'gentlemen cf leisure' was quite funny.
One came to our house and asked for
some clothes, and while my mother
went to get them I thought he looked
hungry,so I brought him some breakfast.
He said to ie, 'I am sorry to put you
to all this trouble.' Then, mother ap-
pearing with the clothes in a bundle, he
said he did not like to carry clothes
through the streets exposed to view,
and when I wrapped them in an old
newspaper he was indignant and said
gentlemen never carried packages done
up in that style in Boston."-New Or-

A Typical Negr6 Camp Neetina.
There is perhaps no more favorable
place in which to study negro character
and manners than the camp meeting.
This time honored institution is no less
social than religious in its nature. It is
usually held in a partly cleared grove,
under the auspices of the local clergy.
Hither the colored population of the
surrounding region flocks, coming on
foot, in carriages and wagons, in ox
carts and mule carts, on horseback and
mule back-in short, by every conceiv-
able mode of locomotion. Its dress is
as varied as its vehicles. Indeed the
negroes of the south are of all people
the most cosmopolitan in the matter of
dress. Clothes of every imaginable
style, color and "previous condition of
servitude" are pressed into use, so that
in this particular they present as great
a variety as the beggars in the nursery
As we approach the grove what a
medley of sounds breaks upon our hear-
ing-the neighing of horses, the bellow-
ing of cattle, the hechaw braying of
mules, the laughter and screams of chil-

'-'b" ptrpo. of this Company is to Improve the Country adjacent toS t
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
'1 accomplish this the Company proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
r.etion of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
,eo efeach 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 such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first question which 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-
rily sho* 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.
pFrom a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantatiotn in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Prieo f;ana per acra,gay $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'ost of planting Isat
ar, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $201
S ta 6 not extravagant to Astimate thataI 1-acre Vineyard will on-the third
71r, Itf properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit and of peaches nearly or quite
*Ie same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
onger',siome of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
etarine s, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds, English
welants, Japai chestnuts, pecans, and ,,,any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
ae almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
*idered eprtaiD yield large returns oftener than they miss
The Secretary of the Company will give particular attention to an-
ewerig tt,ters of inquiry, and the Buoy willing its answers to correspondents an-
Swer all questions asked it.

A True Fish Story.
Benj. Harrison in Jacksonville Metropolis
One fish story, strictly and liter-
ally true has been lAughed at over
ten states as the product of an in-
flamed imagination. Every man in
the party will vouch for the state-
went as here set dor n, and their
names will be strong enough to sub-
stantiate a ghost story where they
are best known;
A party of gentlemtin agreed to go
fishing, and a small teamerr was char-
tered. In the party were J. B. Wall,
president of the Florida senate; E.
M. Hammond, state senatorr; J. P.
Taliaferro, chairman of tie state ex-
ecutiye committee; E. J. Triay, the
governor's secretary; J. E. Ing.aham,
of the East Coast Line; Nat. Pointz,
banker; the writer and others.
About 11 a. in. the steamer was
authored off the coast, and the party
had fine sport with grouper. The
captain in the pilot house had been
watching through his glass a line of(
dimn objects about two niires- away
and finally called the attention of the
others to the sight.
To the eye it seemed a line ofblack
objects a mile long, and everybody
guessed it was the sea serpent. But
the glass separated the line into ma-
ny large bodies, against which the
slight ripple played. They kept in
regular formation and seemed to
move only at long intervals.
Immediately lines were drawn up
and the steamer passed to windward
of the line, stopped her engines and
drifted up by the beam. All was
now bustling preparation. A strong
harpoon was rigged, secured to the
capstan and placed in the hands of
him who claimed to be "the master
of those who know." Five 44-cali-
bre rifles, with a dozen grains, boat.
hooks. etc., were ready as if for a
party of boarders of the Kidd variety.
Now the excitement was red hot.
At fifty yards we could see the mon-
stets, black as Erebuj, resting on
widespread wings, eating liesurely
some small substance that discolored
the water in tront of the line. A
gulp would be taken disclosing
throats into which yoll n eight drop
an ordinary sofa; the wings would
move gently and the body would
move up. The sailors called them
"bat fish." .They were shaped like
a stingray. They would average two
two tons in weight, alt
fully twenty feet from the tip of one
wing to that of the other. Can you
wonder that e:chi of u4 held his
breath and waited impatiently for the
captain's word to begin action.
Slowly we drifted up to one of the
monsters. When almost touching
hint the captain roared, "Now!'"
The harpoon buried itself at the root
of one wing. Five rifle balls plaged
the parts we supposed to be vital and
the "missile weapons" of indiscrim-
inate character from every hand beat
and bruised him.
The sea was beaten into foam as
the herd fled. The stricken monster
plunged about in a wild flurry. The
magazine rifles kept busy at work
and the yells were deafening.
Then the fish sounded. The
steamer shivered when the line ran
out. and the bow was almost buried
as the monster struggled at the end
of his tether. Then he rose to the
surface and ran for the open sea.
We followed him and as the steam
got in its work we drew in the line,

with four men at the capstan bars.
Coming up to our game we attacked
him again with rifles and pistols and

Nothing could be fairer, more philan-
thropic or carry more joy to the afflicted,
than the offer ofT. A. Slocum, M. C., of
183 Pearl street, New Yo-k City.
Confident that he has discovered an
absolute cure for consumption and all
pulmonary complaints, and to make its
great merits known,he will send free,

of the Buoy who is suffering from chest.

c nsumption.i
Already this "new scientific course of
medicine," has permanently cured thou-
sands of apparently hopeless cases.
The Doctor considers it his religious
duty-a duty which he owes to hnman-
itvy-to donate his infallible cure.
Offered freely, is enough to commend it,
and more so is the perfect confidence of
the great chemist making the proposition.
He has proved the dreaded consump-
tion to be a curable disease beyond any
There will be no mistake in sending .-
the mistake will be in overlooking the
generous invitation. He has on file in
