"Oh-ah--oh, doctor, can't yol give me
srlticthiing quick, before I dic?"
In nothing did Folsom Simpson show
his wonderful readiness more markedly
than in his action on finding himself
alone in the office of Dr. Maidhoff. The
most that he had hoped for on his way
thither was the opportunity of a look at
the interior and of making the acquaint-
ance of the physician. In a general way
he intended to play the part of a patient
of his as long as it could be made to serve
his purpose, but here lie was with the
chance which he had not looked for un-
der a week at the least.
Springing lightly to his feet. he first
made for the drawers, numbering about
a dozen, beneath the cases in which the
physician kept his jars, bottles and va-
rious compounds. He drew out one after
the other, bestowing only a momentary
glance on each. They were half filled
with what might be classified under the
head of rubbish, such as wrapping pa-
per, twine, empty bottles, scraps of let-
ters and tidbits. The fact that none was
locked was prima facie evidence that
they contained nothing worthy of his
attention'. and he gave precious little at-
tention to them.
"The receptacle for wl.ich I am look-
ing is locked," was his conclusion as he
turned his efforts to the large writing
desk, whose top was th iown back. "Here
it is," he added a m:,ment later when
one of the small drawers resisted his
In a twinkling he had out his bunch of
skeleton keys, and in less time than
would be supposed the receptacle was
exposed to his view.
It contained nothing but letters flung
"'DI)nahthaan there Lr a some missives

hoff. but which it would be as well that

clerk. "I haven't struck anything in
the nature of a caiket, and it is too
much to hope that I will find the won-
derful ruby, but-hello!"
His eye caught an envelope with a
foreign stamp. A glance at it showed
that the postmark was Calcutta.
"That is worth looking into," he mut-
tered, unhesitatingly shoving the en-
velope, whose plumpness showed that it
contained a letter, into his pocket.
"There may be more of them."
Possibly there was, but the oppor-
tunity to search, further was denied him.
More than S0 minutes had passed since
he began his illegal work, and he was
getting along famously when a cough
and the sound of footsteps on the side
porch warned him of the doctor's ap
proach. With inimitable dexterity
Simpson slid the drawer back in its place
and locked it, slipped to his seat on the
lounge and looked like a man suffering
from a severe attack of colic.
Mrs. Maidhoff had informed her hus-
band th aataptient awaited him in the
office, so that he was prepared for his

blushingly admitted that he had been
overindulging in a series of fruit, topped
off with wine, whisky and a couple u
swallows of brandy whose quality ex
cited his suspicion.
"I s'pose it's my own fault." he
groaned, "but that doesn't help ttese

his identity, for. kirowing every one as
be did in Ellenville, a little natural curi-

under the circumstances.
Fifteen minutes later Simpson was
back again in the room of Max Manson.
to whom he recounted his experience.

'may be nothing in this letter," he re-
marked as he drew it forth from the en-
velope. "We shall soon find out-con:

Both Manson and Simpson were skilled
in cipher writing and in the study of
cryptograms. It was no difficult matter
where so much was already told, for
them to fill in the blanks caused by the
loss of part of the letter.
They did it in this wise, and though it
is not supposed that they were literally
correct, there was little doubt that they
were substantmlIly so:
CALCOITrA, June -.
Two natives, Wickman and Lu- will
heave Calcutta some time during the present
month by steamer for England, whence they
will sail for the United States, their ultimate
destination being the town of Ellenville, in the
state of Connecticut. They are both desper-
re villains, who took part in the sepoy mutiny.
and, have good reason to believe, are members
of the organization of assassins known under
the name of Thugs, and which was suppressed
in England many years ago.
They have been sent by the rajah of ---,
whose ancte-stors once owned thie wonderful
gem known as rajat's ruby. This fanatical

necessary In order for them toaccomplish tleir
purpose. Very respectfully.
"That letter establishes the fact that
two men have been sent from the othe7
side of the world," said Simpson, "for
the rajah's ruby, and it looks very much
as if they had secured it and are work-
ing their way back home with the gem."
"Then do you consider the doctor elim-

another fragrant cigar and nursed the

'Have you any hope of finding the
ruby in his possession?"
Folsom Simpson looked toward the
ceiling for a few minutes, while hefilled
the room with the mellow perfume from
bs cigar. He was pondering some strange
question of which his companion could
form no conception. He certainly saw i
complication which did not present itself
to his astute friend.
"I don't know how to answer you..
Max. The natural belief, with the little
light we have gathered, is.that Dr. Maid-
hoff was bribed to help those fellows to
get the ruby and that they are making
off with it. Probably that is thefact, and
yet I can't believe it."
It is impossible to depict the earnest-,
ness with which Simpson uttered this
declaration He said:
'1 see dimly a darker mystery in Phe
background. If I do not explain myse;f,
it is not because I do not intend to work
j.eart and hand with you in clearing up
this tragic problem. The success of one.
so far as we are'concerned, means the
success of both."

a double somersault and broke his

to turn in a fire alarm and ask the
department to put the porker out,
when an old negro stuck his
over the fence and offered to

watched proceedings.. He went up
to the hog and remarked: "You
stay right w'ar you is. "D'ye lyar!
Don't ebber lemme catch you out

and moved toward the gate. The'
negro tried to head him off, but he
uttered a loud "woof" and went
down -the street like Old Nick beating

-As the BuoY stated a week of two
ago, N W Pitts is about to open up a large
stock of general merchandise in the store
at Pittsburg, on East Bay formerly occu-
pied by N W Pitts& on. Mr Pilts left
Sutiday on the Nettie for Pensacola where
he will lay in hib first invoice of goods,
which will embrace such goods as are in
demand by the farmers, fishermen, and in
fact by evervonie in the vicinity of St An-
drews Bay. He has made notable im-
provements in the store and surroundings,
making everything attractive aiid conve-
nient tor his patrons, and th-"' lie will ve-
ceive his due proportion of the business of
the Bay goes without saying. As soon as
the stock is .opened display ad in the
Boor will keep the fact prominently be-
fore the people.

was assisted by Rod Wifcox at the violin
inud Chas Danford directed the movements
,of the dancers.
-A. J. Trisket came pretty near
meeting with quite a serious accident last
Saturday. While hauling lumber from
thie Salisbury mill, the hind wheel of his
wagon, in turning a corner came in con-
tact with an obstruction, at which the
horse gave a jump, breaking the reach in-
lo three pieces and scattering lumber and
driver promiscuously on the ground. Mr
Trisket gathered himself in time to avert
a runaway," and although considerably
shakenn up suffered no serious personal
iij u ry.

A FEW WORDS.
About Some of the Promiuent
Business Houses in Pensa-
It was the good fortune of the
editor of the BuoY during a hasty
visit to Pensacola to make the ac-
quaintance of several of the most
successful business men of that city
and a brief description of their places
may not prove uninteresting.
Let us then pay our first visit to
the new hardware firm of V. A.
Moore & Co., Corner of Palafox and
Romana streets. We find ourselves in
a model store stocked with almost or
quite every thing one can think of in
the hardware line; the goods are-
tastefully and attractively arranged
and show the proprietors to be no
namateuis in the mercantile busi-
ness. In fact the firm is connected
with the Moore & Handley, hardware
Co., of Birmingham Ala., whose rep-
utation is world wide; and in such.-a-
school it is no wonder thlaMt-lre&Co,
of Pensacola ae-lamiliar with the
L nafi i inicildent to the closest
complietitiou and are prelpaed to meet
llthe succee.fully in Peinsacola, as
they have in Bill ainlighama and what-
ever business tactics may become
necessary, customers may rest assur-
ed that they will get what they pay
for; as goods are never misrepresent-
ed, nor an inferior article sold at the
price of a good one. This firm will
shortly send out representatives to
get acquainted with the people and
tell them more about their business
than can be told in an ordinary news-
paper article; and probably St. An-
drews will be visited, but whether it
is not, our merchants and others
should not fail to visit the house
when they are in Pensacola or to
write and get prices if in want of
hardware me chandise of any kind
Not far from this establishment on
the same side of Palafox street is the
extensive furniture house of Marston
& Fitton, and this is a business
house that will compare favorably with
those of much larger cities than Pen-,
sacola. Their large triple store at 40,
42 and 44 South Palafox st., is stock-
ed from floor to ceiling, with furni-
ture of every imaginable design and
with styles to suit the most meagre
purse or the bank account of the
millioniare. As there is no ,fuini-
ture store in St. Andrews it is of the
tI' ,a,,,.it i ,,n ,'-t.iiee that viittn .s cuin, -
IIgI by 'way of Pt iac.'',,la and intend-
iIIt to eca:,i\ their own qu;iatel es
I\\ 1iite ye. should visit this house
;i !in mrake sr!elti'in- of such furniture
is thdy may ha\e use for while they
retain at the Bay.
Another important establishment
in this immediate neighbor-hood is
the niarble and stone cutting factory
of B. A. Davis. Here can be found
in chiseled marble designs as unique
and suggestive as those of any other
establishment of its kind in the laud;
none but the best workmen are enm-
ployed, and the monument or stone
which leaves the works bears upon
its face a recommendation movie con-
vincing than mere words can convey.
Should your friends find a resting
place in the St. Andrews cemetery,
Mr. Davis can satisfactorily mark
their tomb, and will take special
pride in giving personal attention to
the preparation and shipment of
either, modestly plain, or the more
ornate designs required for this pur-
At No 30 East Garden street, and
plainly in sight from Palafox, is an
establishment the magnitude of which
was a surprise to the writer who had
often heard of the carriage and wagon
manufactory of J. M. Hilliard but
had no idea of the size of the works.
A visit to Mr. Hilliard's soon convin-
ces one that he makes "a mistake who
sends out of the state fur fine car-
riages, photons, road carts, or heavier
farm and freight wagons or drays,
andhsis prices withal are as moder-
ate as is co'Trtent with good work.
If any reader of iltm BUOY contem-
plates purchasing anythi-ig- --this
character, correspondence should first
be had with Mr. Hilliard.
Every reader of the BucY is famil-
ar with the House of Heinberg Bros.,
whose ad has been a feature of the
'BuoY almost from the start. and the
visitor to their house is made to feel at
hume and if purchases are made a
fair equivalent for the money spent
Lewis Bear & Co., are also well-
known, to our readers through their
ad. Having one of the most exten-
sive houses in the city and having
almost every line of merchandise it
is not wonderful that the sales are
simply immense and their constantly
increasing business is good evidence
that the patrons are pleased with
the treatment received.
But the Visitor to Pensacola's firstJ
thought is a hotel or place where the
entertainment will be agreeable and
satisfactory. As you step from the
cars at the union depot and look
south, the first thing that greets the
vision is the Lewis House, under the
management of Mrs. W. F. Lewis. Of
course the writer directed his steps
thitherward, and of course his enter-
tainment corroborated the many fa=
vorable reports previously heard of the
house. The food provided is whole-
some, clean, nicely cooked and atten-
tively served; the beds are clean and
comfortable, and Mrs. L is ever
watchful for the comfort of her
Mrs. Loraine, who by the way is a
St. Andrews lady, keeps a modest
.boarding house on East Romana
street and here also a limited number
of transient guests my be accomo-
dated, and be sure of receiving hos-
pitable treatment and a good word
about St. Andrews.

Correspondence of theBuo.
The railroad has turned jup again.
Mr. Faller and others wero here and
went to Tallahasse, cainw back and
went to St. Andrews by hack and
are expected to return next week.
Madam gossip says that the charter
gran:ed to Messrs. Howland & Co,
will expire this summer and 'Messrs.
Fuller & Co., will ask for a distinct
one for themselves. They say that
they have the nlony to build the
road, but don't want to pay away a
large sunt before they commence
work, for a privilege that has run
out and will he dead next June.
Two years ought to be time enough
to prove the intention of a company
to build and when after that time
has expired, there is not a mile of the
road graded, there should not be an
extension granted by the legislature.
The readers of the BuoY may like to
get an outline of the history of the
unfinished line from Chipley to St.
Andrews. The distance is about
fifty miles and duo .south; Chipley is
a rising town on the railroad from
Peniraculato River Junction, while
St. Andrews Iay is on the Gulfcoast
and has a harbor of some sixty miles
in extent and entered by only one
pass. Seven years ago Chipley was
very ~mall and St. Andrews town
smaller, having only a hotel and a
few houses; but it was well advertis-
ed by a company and the attention
of thousands was attracted to it.
The natural advanLtages of St. An-
drews was at Jnce recognized by all,
but the trouble was to get there;
there were two ways, a schooner from
Pensaeola. The writer had to pay
$25 to get his family there, by
schooner from Pensacola. The nec-
essity of a railroad from Chipley to
St. Aidrews was seen by Mr. New-
mon of Chicago and le determined to
build it. His mother was a rich
woman-some say rich enough to do
it, if she made up her mind; lie came
and got a survey, made, gavea con-
tract to grade aun bri-lge the road to
F. Visschler, who gave out sub-con-
tracts. A start was ina-le, fivehun-
di'ed men were set to work end about
half of the distance was cleared and
graded; twenty tlhatiuand dollars
worth "of work was i!oni an'l pay day
arrived. The day of coninlg wa.s
put off as long as it c.mill be, credit
was strained and at la4t the money
was to be depo-ited in the bank iat
PensacQoa; Ne'win n/went to Chicago,
to liriitithe cashlt l Vichler went
to Pensitcola to ge it.- Byron, the
poet, said "W'maaia'n, thy promises are
wrote on sand"-tha means, that
they change their mnild.N, and so did
Mrs. Nowmon; She would not pay
and then Newmon di,.i not pay and
so Visscher could not pay and it was
a sad day for the men. 7 This was a
bad start and the people have a very
natural horror of speculators since.
I can not say that Newmon got a
charter or any right of way; but one
thing I can pay, and that is, we want
no more fooling frouii men who can-
not.build a road and will encourage
those who can, for we want it. Men
homesteaded and bought land along
the proposed line and are living there
still and still hoping for'a railroad.
A few who have cows. think it may
hurt their cattle to have the wild
wood cultivated; but as sure as St.
Andrews is on the gulf coast and has
harbor accommodation for a thous-
and ships, with a belt of pich pine
one hundred miles long and fifty
miles wide at its back and the gulf
stream at its feet, lie is sure to have
a railroad. It is to be hoped that
while our legislators will protect us
from speculators, they will not put
unreasonable impediments before
those who are able and inclined to
build the road. MALCHAY.

A Practical Illustration.
Uncle Silas was the best posted man
on general topics in the village, and a
hunter of renown as well. He also had
a virago for a wife. Dear, dear, what a
temper that woman had! She was the
only thing on earth of which Uncle
Silas was afraid.
One day a class of school children
called on the old man. They were sent
by their teacher to get some facts in
"We've come,"' said the spokesman of
the las, t a, to sk yon some questions,
TUncle Silas, about the habits and cus-'
toms of the wildcat."
Uncle Silas had been very glad to see
them, as the broad smile on his face
testified. But now he looked very much
"H-u-s-hl" he said, with ,a cautious
gesture; "who on arth sent ye here on
such a' errand?"
"Miss Knowles, our teacher," said the
class in concert.
"Waal, she oughter know better. "I
ain't never hed anythin to say about
them thar critters .sence-oh, Lordy,
thar she comes!"
And Uncle Silas lit out as a tall wom-
an armed with a broom lit in.
"Think ye'r smart, do ye?" she scream-
ed. "Wanter.know about wildcats,
hey? Got up a joke on the ole man, but
I'll teach ye to joke on face's. Take that
home for yer pains."
Whack, whack, went the broom, and
it did not fail in its aim, as two of the
boys who were the last to get out could
easily prove.-Detroit Free Press.

W ^^ f ^ is Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St.
0 Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-frowing COuntry.
To accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tracts of Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value 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 such tract shall be a "
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
For a starting point the Association has a Fine Body of Land on Watson Bayou,
only about four miles from St. Andrews which will be sold in such tracks upon the
conditions named, and is negotiating for and will soon close contracts for other good
Fruit Lands in the vicinity of the Bay.
The tract on Watson Bayou has been so divided as to give each purchaser
.A SPI:EL'EN-DIIT D WAfTE= Fi'O NT TA.C-E,
With not less than Twelve Feet of Water, where any ordinary boat that
navigates the Bay can make Safe Landing.
The title to this land is unimpeachable and sales will be made on time to
Another and most important object of the Association is to improve lands,
not only for its purchasers, but for any person owning l:ind. ill thv B ty country at the
very lowest cost to its patrons consistent wtith good, w-?;aci'try wrk:. -
Purchaserh amiii -trons may or rmi.layL,-t becriniii' members of the Associa-
ion h -i .3i arL sndi paving a membership, fee of $10, and may
be paid in cash, land or abor by agreement to either effect and any individual may
take one or more memberships; but no person may cast more than one vote, and
while there is no provisi.ia to compel patrons to become members it would be prefer-
a'lle that they should do so, for in that event they would not only have a voice in its
deliberations,'but be entitled to their proposition of whatever profits may accrue.
It is proposed to buy lumber, building materials, nursery stock and fertil-
izers at wholesale prices, and give patrons the.benefits of all discounts so secured.
S Every season is proving that the St. Andrews Bay country possesses Hor-
ticultural advaiitage, equaled by but few of the most favored places on earth, and the
organizers of this Asociiatioi are showing their faith in this belief by individually
planliig and iinpr,\ in-, to the extent of their finances; but they are not.satisfied to
limit their laiors to the individual and hope to see the thousands of non resident lot
owners avail themselves of this opportunity to |1,t their possessions in shape to yield
them handsome retiuns for their investment, which will never be realized so long as
their lots and lniind remain unimproved.
AS 'TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION.
The first question wlic;h will naturally be ake'l will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"Y And tlee answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
