Are the People Willing to Pay
Double the Present Prrce for
and Other Kinds of
Farm and Fireside.
Parties are going about represent-
ing to business men that publishers
are a favored class, and do not pay
as high a rate of postage as they
should. The claim is nmail that if
postage on newspapers, magazines,
etc., is increased seven cents per
-pound, then letter postage would be
reduced from two cents to one cent
for each letter. Such statements are
not true, but they cause business men
Sto feel dissatisfied, hence congress
has been urgd to increase postage
on printed matter. As a result the
lower I usDa-C-of r*'j,,o1n-u on A.\r
10th adopted an amendmlint T .m.aisij
the rate of postage on certain kinds
of periodicals. It the people do not
enter their protest this will prove a
death blow to cheap literature in this
country, as publishers will be com-
pelled to charge over double the pres-
ent price for a great portion of the
printed matter, because of increased
postage. The increase of seven cents
a pound for postage is over double
the price of nearly all the paper used
at the present time.
This forced increase in the price
of literature will in reality fall on
those people who live in small towns
and in the country, because they re-
ceive most of their reading matter by
mail. The publisher's profit is al-
ready down to the lowest possible
limit, hence an increase in postage
can only result in a great increase in
the price of reading matter.
As this will cause a vast majority
of the people to pay over twice as
much for their reading matter as they
do now, or curtail the amount over
one half, we urge each and everyone
of our readers to write a letter at
once to the Congressman from his
district, and also a letter to each of
the United States Senators foim his
state, and demand that the postage
shall not be increased on any class
or kind of printed matter. Tell your
representative in in congress that
you do not live in a large town or
city, where they have free delivery
of mail by letter-carriers, which costs
the postal department about twelve
million dollars ($12,000,000) a year,
therefore you demand as an offset to
this great expenditure which benefits
only a small portion of the entire
population, that all kinds of printed
matter, including books in paper
covers, be carried il the mails at the
same rate of postage as the last five
years. Write at once.
Another Remedy For Snake
The following is recommended as
a sure cure for snake bite: Give the
person bitten a teacuptul of pure
melted hog lard and all the new milk
le can drink; keep the wonnd and
as far as the swelling extends thor-
oughly saturated with lard, and re-
lief will be obtained in a very short
time. In extreme cases drink a
"second cup of melted lard in fifteen
minutes after the first.

A eiitl.,n;ii \i I., is ia n e','t in
htati ,tical maltter's has taken l ii
the census some data and made
therefroml an analysis of wages which
is certainly interesting as indicating
the relatively sinal number of work-
els in this country who are depend-
ent upon protection, and indicating
also that the wages paid in protect-
ed industries are, as a rula, less re-
sponsive to improved conditions tlan
wages paid in tlhe unprotected indus-
tries. I.n thie industries. r ie'.-resei inLl

knit goods, silk goods, swollen goods,
etc.-it is found that there were em-
ployed in 1890, 212,"'-1 males and
190,568 females. The average wag-
es of the males $414. The average
of the females was $275. He finds
that in the manufacture of food and
drink supplies, which obviously have
little, if any, protection, whatever,
there were employed 174,379 males,
whlo were paid on the average $513
per year; that is just about $100 per
annum more than is paid to the male
operatives in the highly protected in-
dustries. Carrying the comipalison
yet a step farther, it is found that in
the industries where people are em-
ployed on stationary work, such as
blacksmiths, carpenter%, masons,
plasterers, etc., the number of males
employed was 532,840, who were
paid on an average of $795 a year or
nearly $200 a year Inore than was re-
ceived by those engaged in tlhe pro-
tected industries. The analysis can
be car.ied still farther, but, in this
respect, enough has been given to
show that the claim that the protect-
ive tariff has anything to do with
wages in the way of increasing them
is wholly without foundation, as is
likely to be shown by practical illus-
tration when the new tariff bill is
adopted, Mr. ScIli..'cli,.I also shows

erage about 50 per cent higher than
those received by operatives in wool-
en, worsted, carpet and hosiery fac-
tories. More than this, while be-
tween 1885 and 1890 there was an
advance in the wages, of the first
named class equivalent to about $78
a year, in the last named class tlhe
increase was equivalent to only $61
Nature's Canning Factory.
Entomologists show that the bee
invented the canning business. When
a bee has filled a cell with honey and
put the cap on, he punctures the cap
with its stinger and deposits inside a
drop of formic acid, which preserves
the honey. This acid is the poison
which the bee inflicts, upon an in-
The Local Paper's Power.
blatington (Penn.) News.
The immense power a local paper
possesses in attracting trade to the
town in which it is published or di-
verting it into other channels can
hardly be estimated, Further, it is
a matter that is seldom considered as
an important factor in a town's pros-
perity, for the'simple reason that
business nme do not give it thought.
He who will impartially consider
this assertion will be convinced of
the truth of it. The local paper is
very natnially biased in favor of the
place of its publication, and if given
a fair living patronage by home bus-
iness men will guard well their inter-
ests, just as the merchant guards the
interests of his individual customer.
But if a niggardly support is doled
out to it, and it is compelled to soli-
cit custom from neighboring cities, it
cannot in justice to those patrons ex-
ert itself in behalf of its own town,
as it otherwise would. Try a sys-
tem of liberality in the matter of
advertising expenditure and mark the

matter how ui isEilis nlitfh be the ad-

quarry, some one in the outlaw gang
would surely see them long before they
could come within close range. Then
he felt sure that a portion at least
would stamped for the hills, and that
he would not have to fight more than
10 or 12. His plan was at all hazards
to cut out, recapture and hold Harvey's
wagon-that, first of all; then, if pos-
sible, the others.
And now the time had come. In
eager but suppressed excitement Mein-
ecke and the men came trotting up the
"Halt signaled Drummond. Then
"Forward into line,"* and presently the
lieutenant stood looking into the sun
tanned faces of less thpn 20 veteran
troopers, four sets of fours with two
sergeants, dusty and devil may care,
with horses jaded, yet sniffing mischief
ahead and pricking up their ears in ex-
citement. Drummond had been the
troop leader in scout after scout and in
several lively skirmishes during the
year gone by. There was not one of
his troopers whom he could not swear
by, thought he, but then the recollection
of Bland's treachery brought his teeth
together with vengeful 'force. He
found his voice a trifle tremulous as he
spoke, but his words had the brave

-steady. Keep your alignment, Take
the pace from me. Forward!"
Up the gentle slope they rode, strain-
ing their eyes for the first sight of the
hunted quarry, opening out instinct-
ively from the center so that each
trooper might have fighting space.
No squares of disciplined-infantry, no
opposing squadrons, no fire flashing
lines, were to be met and overthrown
by compact and instantaneous shock.
It was to be a melee, as each trooper
well knew, in which, though obedient
to the general plan of their leader, the
little detachment would be hurled for-
ward at the signal "Charge," and then
it would be practically a case of'"every
man for himself."
"I want you four fellows to stick
close to me now," said Drummond,
turning in his saddle and indicating the
desired set with a single gesture. "We
move straight for the leading wagon.

And these were the last instructions
as they reached the ridge, and a hoarse
murmur flew along the eager rank, a
murmur that, but for Drummond's
raised and restraining hand and Ser-
geant Lee's prompt "Steady there; si-
lence I" might have burst into a cheer.
And then the leader shook loose his rein,
and just touching Chester's glossy
flank with the spur bounded forward at
Out on the sandy barren, winding

still with coal blackened faces, rode
drowsily alongside the creaking wagons.

hanging canvas curtain, and a dark,

Domingo dismounted, and placing the

of water, rewarded himself with a long
pull, handed it up to the waiting hand
above and swung again in the saddle
just as the second ambulance closing
on the first came also to a willing halt,
and the lead mules of the buckboard,
whereon lay two wounded bandits, at-
tended by Moreoq's womenfolk, bujwped
their noses against the projecting boot.
"Some cool water, for God's sake!"
gasped on'j of the prostrate.men, and a
c.O;r'ade ro-do to the heading wagon to
beg a little from Harvey's well filled
barrel. One or two men threw them-
serves from the saddle to the sands for a
brief rest. The dust cloud slowly set-
tled earthvward in their wake. Mules,
horses and men blinked sleepily, wear-
ily. There hung in the heavy air a dull,
low rumble as of thunder in the faroff
mountains. There seemed a faint
quiver and tremor of the soil. Was
there a distant earthquake?
Suddenly a wild yell, a scream from
Moreno's buckboard, a half stifled shriek
from the white covered wagon. The
man in blue leaped forth and made a
mad dash for the nearest riderless
horse. Whips cracked and bit and
stung. The maddened mules flew at
their collars and tore away, the wagons
bounding after them, and Pasqual Mo-
rales, thrusting forth his head to learn
the cause of all the panic, grabbed the
revolver at his belt with one fierce

The husband and father, gazing upon
afar, blessed the saints for their bene
ficence in having landed his oved ones
on soft soil instead of among the jag-
ged rocks across the plain. But for
himself the sooner he reached the rocks
the better. A tall gringo, who cast
aside a dark blue blouse as he rode,
stooping low over his horse's neck,
seemed bent on racing the late ranch
owner to the goal where both would
be, and there was none to dispute with
them the doubtful honor. Even those
who had stampeded at the first yell of
alarm were now reining back in broad,
sweeping circle, unslinging the ready
rifle and pouring in a long range fire on
the distant rank of cavalry, just burst-
ing into the triumph of the charge.
Here, there and everywhere across the
plain little puffs of blue white smoke
were shooting up, telling of the leaden
missiles hurled at the charging line.
But on like the wind came the troopers
in blue, never pausing to fire a shot,
their leader at racing speed.
Wounded though he was, Pasqual
Morales was not the man to fail in the
fight. Yelling orders and curses at his
driver, he succeeded in getting him ta
control his frantic team just long
enough to enable the outlaw captain
to tumble out. Then away they dashed
again, the stiffening body of Ramon and
the weighty little safe being now sole
occupants of the interior. In the mad
excitement of the first rush two or three
horses had broken loose, leaving their
owners afoot, and believing that no
quarter would be the rule these aban-
doned roughs were fighting to the last,
selling their lives, as they called it, as
dearly as possible. From their rifles
and from others the shots rained fast
upon the troopers, but never seemed to
check the charge. The rush was glori-
ous. Drawing their revolvers now,
for they carried no sabers, the soldiers
fired as they rode down those would be
obstructors, and two poor wretches were
flattened out upon the plain when the
main body of the troop dashed by, mak-
ing straight for the fleeing Concord
with the white canvas top. Drum-
mond had not fired at all. Every
thought was concentrated on the occu-
pants of the wagon. Every shot might
be needed when he got to them.
Chester was running grandly. The
designated four who were to follow the
heutenant were already over 100 yards
behind when, from the trail of the am-
bulance, from a little patch of cactus,
there came a flash and report, and the
beautiful horse swerveil, reeled, but
pushed gamely on. Noting the spot,
two of the following troopers emptied
a cartridge into the clump, but left the
lurking foe to be looked after later.

THE NEW MONEY ORDERS.
To Be Issued July 1 at Ri uuced
Rates to be Mubstituted for
Samples of the new nioncy bid'rW
to be issued at the pI stoffice have
been received. They are ver pretty,
being printed froi a finely engraved
steel plate, and form an admirable
contrast to the antiquated oider forni
no.v used. Moreover they are far
more difficult to i'sitate.
Another feature is that they have
graded con puns attached, which.
being torni oil' at the proper place
prevents the ordle being materially
raised iih a fraudulent way. Money
orders will be issued for any sunm up
to $100, and there will be a reduictioli
of the rates. For instance, adHn
order up to $2,50 will cost three cents
instead of five cents, a. previously;
and there are graded rates up to "10U
for which thirty cents is paid IriNidad
of forty-five cents.
This change meets the competition
of the express money order svytent;
and is likely to draw much business
to the mail service, that was oilier-
wise d, ne by the express companies;
indeed the po.,toffice department, in
making the change, have the ider
that it wil'. be more convenient to
the public, induce a larger. business
be more profitable, and be more :ben-
eficial to those postmasLers who are
mainly paid by commission.
The new iioney order 'si, lm wilt
be inaugurated on July 1, and on
tllat ay no further pi, al notes \\ill
be issued. The postoffice depart-
ment have long considered them uni
reliable inasmuch as any ore could
collect a potal note by signing a
name, no matter how he acquired it
or whether the name 'signed was d-
ficticious one. Under the new fysa

eral days he may have been seen cutting
out t he bushes and grubs, which he after-
wards piled and burned. Reaching
Chestnut street he turned his eyes north-
ward, and'evidently the sight that mot
his vision was not to his liking, for he
gave an extra turn to his elevated shirt
sleeves and served that thoroughfare as
far as the Methodist church with the
same treatment bestowed on Commerce
street. His example is a commendable
one and he who follows it will ceserve

selves familiar therewith they have noth-
ing to lose and there is little doubt but
that such knowledge would work to their
advantage, whether they become members
or not. While the association has lands
which it offers to sell to those only who
will improve them it has no intention or
wish to stand in competition with any
real estate dealer, but on the .confirary
will assist them wherever opportunity
offers to dispose of their lands and lots to
parties who will occupy and improve
them, in the hope that it may be emiloyea
to plant their trees, build their houses,

That Tired Feeling--Severe

Six Bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla
BrinX Back New Life.
"0. 1. Hood &Co., Lowell, Mass.:
"Dear Sirs:-Before using Hood's Sarsapa-
rilla I was frequently sick and did not know
what was the matter with me. One day I would
feel so tired I could hardly stand, the next I
would have a severe headache and so on, not
knowing what the next day would bring forth.
I did not have any appetite and
Was Greatly Run Down.
I tried a good many medicines but they did me
no good. Having heard a great deal about
Hood's Sarsaparilla I decided to try a bottle. I
Hood's ia res
am glad to say I soon felt better. I have now
used six bottles and fee0s well as ever. It has
been of great benefit th the as I have regained
my appetite and

as an excellent blood medicine." M. SYMOms,

that for one dollar sent to us we can fur-

town with the lots and public places cor

have also a sectional map embracing not
only the town proper, but all the land
disposed of by the Cincinnati Company,

it is an easy matter to get their location-
by the use of this map. One dollar buys

new steamship which is to run on the line
between Mobile and Carabelle, will start
from Mobile June 1, and should reach St.
Andrews by the 3d. The landing of the
boat at St. Andrews will mark an event
in the history of the bay which promises
much, in fact everything for its future,
and the magnitude of the good to come
from it can only be measured by the per-
manency of the new enterprise. Previous
disappointments in the establishment of
a line of this character will of course sug-
gest the possibilily of a failure of this
enterprise; but the assurance of the pro-
prietors is given that the boat will stay
on the line for one year, at least, and
there is every reason to believe that the
people of the bay will as a unit lend aid
and encouragement to the enterprise to
the end that it may be a permanent one
and be followed by others of still greater
value to this section. A force
of ten or twelve citizens has been

HOW TO REST WHEN TIRED.
rhe Most Comfortable Position for the
Body When the Day's Work Is Done.
Masculine and feminine writers on
beauty, tell women that they should
sleep more and oftener, but it has been
told us recently by a German professor
that pillows should be put under the
feet instead of under the head. This
learned professor-and what more learn-
ed than a German professor?-claims
that his scheme, if followed, will mate-
rially improve the physical and mental
strength,This is what Professor Fischer
"Superstition or legend or the custom
of years has had an influence upon us
while we slept that has been almost as

that if we sleep with our head, to the

represented in foreign papers as sitting

convenient mantle-piece some yards ap-
parently, above him."
But Professor Fischer has changed all
that; he has demonstrated by a series of
painstaking and careful experiments
that one should sleep with fret slightly
elevated, or the had a trifle lower than
the feet, as he putsit, and this condition
he advices bringing about by placing

The mystery of the vast shell mou
that are found in different parts of the
country is being gradually unraveled,
and the investigations throw much
light on the nature and habits of the
shadowy race that inhabited this conti-

publication of the Smithsonian institu-
tion, just issued as part of the proceed-
ings of the National Museum, a paper
by Dr. Dewitt Webb treats of the shell
heaps of East Florida, great mounds
measuring from a few square yards to
many acres in extent, all of which have
been the abode of a race for many gen-
erations. The paper shows how the
mounds may determine the form, of the
prehistoric habitation and indicate race
characteristics. The illusions show
forms of pottery far from crude, and the
evidences of a rather dense population
in the early ages. ,

THE "KOON-TIr PLANT.
"no of the Queer Products of the
Great County of Dade.
A Plant of Very Peculiar Growth But of
Many Good Parts. Four, Starch,
Tapioca. Etc., Madefrom It.-
From the Florida Agrihultnrlat.
Dade County is. so to say, the "curio"
of Florida. It is.unique in its posses-
sions. It has part of the Seminoles, fin-
est specimens of the red race on the
continent. It has the finest chickens,
cats and babies In the world. It has
beautiful Biscayne Bay, and lastly it
has all to itself that which is to it what
the potato is to Ireland, the wonderful
koon-ti plant, variously spelled koon-ti,
kun-ti and coon-ti, and pronounced by
"those to the manor born," "cumpty."
Leaving out the other subjects, I pro-
pose to tell you a few' things about
"cumpty." Dade County is its home.
It crops out, without cultivation, the
length and breadth of Dade, and if it by
accident infringes on any other county,
it doesn't go to stay.
Not being a botanist, I cannot de-
scribe the plant botanically, but it has a
leaf something like a fern, a long,
switch-like stem from which long nar-
row leaves grow, The leaf varies in
length from two or three inches to two.
feet. The root looks like a red-skinned
sweet potato but grows like a carrot or
parsnip. It is six or eight inches long
usually and about four inches in diam-
eter. It is from this root that the koon-
ti of commerce is prepared. The seed
is core shaped and made up of numerous
small beautifully colored red seed not
quite an inch long, about one hundred
to the cone, and as it protrudes from the
ground it is certainly avery pretty thing

mills are all used. Some of the latter,
like "the mills of the Gods, grind
slowly" as you can imagine. A man
can dig from four to five barrels of roots
a day. The tops are cut off and most
persons cut the rools in about two inch
pieces, they are then deposited in barrels
of water and left to soak about twelve
hours, when they are thrown into the
mill, ground into pulp and strained
through a brass wire sieve until the
starch is extracted.
This runs through the sieve into a Lans
where it stays about three hours to
settle. From this runsoff what is called

In Dade it is an every day dish in one
shape or another. It is strange that so
useful a product is not more widely
known, for only a few years since a
Florida editor was exceedingly anxious to
find out something about the plant and
no one seemed able to give the desired
information. I hope, therefore, that I
may be instrumental in supplying a
"long felt want." LucY M. Fox.

BATHTUBS FOR SPARROWS.

an old sailor who lives up in Harlemon
a comfortable pension awarded him
for the loss of one of his legs in the
civil war. His artificial limb is simply
a straight stick of hickory with an iron
shod end, arid is just a bit too long, so-
that when he puts it out to swing him-
self forward it goes down in earnest
and makes a noise that heralds his
coming for blocks.
Like many other old seafaring gen-
tlemen, says the New York Herald, he
likes a drink of grog now and then,
and he can spin such delightfulyarnsof

times treat him to more of it than. is
quite good for him. The way in which
he navigates for home on these occa-
sions is irresistibly funny to everyone
but a neighbor who recently replaced
the flagstones before his home with an
expensive concrete walk.
IHe kept it covered with straw and
boards for a week; but on the evening
of the very day when it was deemed
hard enough to bear the tread of the
average pedestrian, and when the cov-
ering was removed, the peg-legged mar-
iner got to telling stories and had to
make many tacks on the voyage home.
When the householder awoke next
morning he was in a state of mind bor-
dering on insanity on finding four holes
of varying inclination and depth bored
in the beautifully sinooth surface of
his new pavement. The mariner has
expressed his deep sorrow over the in-
cident, and now always walks on the
other and muddy side of the street.
The four holes are utilized as bathtubs
after every rainstorm by the myriads
of sparrows in the district.

Havana, the Beautiful Gem of the
Ever Faithful Isle.
Some of the Queer Customs of the City--
The Walking Dairies-The Hotels
and Churches-The Women
Bathed in the tides of the Carribean
and washed by the waters ol the great
Mexican Gulf, Cuba the "ever faithful
Isle" well deserves the cognomen it
bears,-Queen of the Antilles. Though
why it should be called "ever faithful" is
an enigma to the stranger. It is evident
from the ten thousand burnished bayo-
nets parading the streets of Havana
twice a day that the isle is faithful only
as a matter of necessity. It is faithful
because it has to be and the people are
loyal for fear of the Spanish soldiery.
The city of Havana and Cuba, is such
that in the near future when transp'orta-
tion facilities between the United States
and the Isle of Key West are improved
that it is likely to be a strong rival of
Florida in the winter tourist business.
It is more than likely too, that these
transportation will be greatly improved
in:the next few years.
RAILROAD TO KEY WEST.
To a person unacquainted with the
"lay of the land," the plan of construct-
ing a railroad over 75 miles of water ly-
ing between the mainland of Florida and
the Isle of Key Wes, seems impractica-
ble and visionary. Competent engineers,
however assure us that the construction
of such a railroad will not be a great
feat of engineering nor so expensive. In
the 75 miles of water there are hundreds
of small isles or keys and between these
keys the water is so shallow that piling
is possible. When the railroad connects
the mainland with Key West the tourist
will then be within 7 or 8 hours of the
great city of Havana. ? city fairly teem.
ing with curios and t u ious people. A
place where the extremnv of wealth and
poverty meet: where the multi-million-
aire touches elbows with the Equalid
pauper on the narrow streets and in the
paved piazzas. A city where any taste
can be gratifed and where the
student of human nature and queer
phases of character can find many
days, in fact months, of profitable and
The census of Havana recently taken
by the authority of the Spanish gov-
ernment discloses the population as ex-
ceeding 300,000 souls. Had the beggars,
people without any visible means of sup-
port, been enumerated the population of
the city would probably have exceeded
one half million. The census enumerator
was instructed to count three paupers to
one able bodied man and by fol!ow;ng
this rule they managed to keep the popu
lation of Havana down to 300,000.
O1 cJurse the first thing that impresses
the visitor is the odd arrangement of the
hotels. The exterior of these buildings
and other fxl ures are generally of iron,
The ceilings of the bed rooms as a rule
are from 14 to 16 feer high and the win-
dows opening on narrow balconies ex-
tending around the entire hotel extend
from the top of the room to the marble
tiled floor. The beds are small canopied
affairs of iron with no mattress, simply a
cotton quilt or comfort spread on woven
Most of the large -hotels are advertised
as English or A merica n houses, but it is
painfully evident to the unfortunate
stranger who speaks English only, that
the only English part of the hotel is the
proprietor, who is perhaps a Frenchman
or Hungarian who has had the patience
to master our language.
On being shown to your bedroom by
the chambermaid, who is not a maid but
a man, the first thing to strike your at-
tention is a notice printed in several lan-
guages and tacked in a conspicuous
place on the door, which says that at 10
p. m. the gas will be turned eff, and if at
that time you are not ready to go to
sleep you are requested to light a tallow
candle, which will be provided free of
charge, and to refrain from singing and
playing on instrumental instruments.
You are further requested to repeat your
prayers in a low tone of-voice after ten
Two of the most prominent Itings in
Cuba are cigarettes and oliv, oil. The
former are smelt everywhere and the lat-
ter is tasted in nearly every dish served.
Americans find the, oil an especial nui-
sance, as the salt sea air ever blowing
across the island has a tendency to give
the visitor a sharp appetite and when he
sees a dainty dish served at dinner, he
immediately wades in, not very deep,

CHURCHES AND CAlHEDEALS.
Havana is well supplied with churches
and cathedrals, many of ttem magnifi-
cent structures, hoary with age and tra-
dition. The visitor, after being impress
ed with the magnificence of.the interiors,
notices the absence of pews or seats o
any kind, and is informed that those
who attend mass either stand or kneel
or bring their own stools or chairs.
In the matter of dairies, Havana rath-
er has the advantage of Florida, inas
much as the consumers of milk see the
lacteal fluid drawn from the proper
source and are certain it does not come
from the nose of a pitcher pump. The
milkman drives his animals before him-
cows, goats and asses-to the door of
the consumer. The quadrupeds are as
who wears trousers, learns the wishes of
his customer, he proceeds to draw the
milk in a quart cup not overly clean.
TAX RIDDEN CUBA.
Cuba is a tax ridden country and Ha-
vana is especially unfortunate in this
connection. Besides keeping up the city
streets, piazzas, parks, gardens, public
buildings, etc., feeding the hungry,
scrawny looking Spanish soldiers, etc.,
it sends to Spain monthly the snug little
sum of $34,000. Spain does not tax
property but it gets even by taxing in-
dustry and every man who conducts any
kind of business pays a privilege license to
the government. If the shop keeper puts
up a sign he pays so much per letter. If
he runs a hotel he must pay Diez y seis
centavo (16 cents) every time a guest
registers, and for every meal he serves
the government gets a percentage. The
cab man pays a license and a percentage
of fares; the boot black contributes to-
wards the oppression of the island by
paying a license and in fact everybody is
taxed but the grandee who owns his
millions and does nothing.
LADIES OF HAVANA.
Ladies of the higher class are never
seen on the streets of the city. Occasion-
ally when they find it necessary to go
shopping. they will drive down Obispo
street, the Broadway of Havana, after
gaslight. They do not leave their car-
riages, but the clerks bring the goods to
the curb, and her ladyship makes her se-
lection. The women of the poorer class,
however, are qutie numerous on the
streets at all times and attract a great
deal of attention from the strangers for
the reason that they go bareheaded in
the hottest sun and wear shawls even
during the dog days. It is no unusual
sight to see these women followed by
children as nude as a marble statue.
T.e city is full of theatres, some of
them very fine ones. They are in full
blast the year around, and are open
from seven p. m. to four a. m. You buy
a ticket for one act, and just before the
curtain goes down, the ushers pass
around and collect your coupons. After
the act is over, you pass out and buy a
new ticket for another act and so on all
nibgt, for as soon as one opera or play
is finished another is commenced.
In the prison La Cutrana there are
1,700 prisoners confined. Hundreds of
these have been confined for years under
penalty of death but as they have suffi-
cient money to pay the levy of the Span-
ish government they are allowed to live.
As long as they can pay over $504o per
year and support themselves they are
not executed. In this prison all the in-
mates are required to earn their own liv-
ing. Many of them have become very
expert as shoe makers, cigar makers,
etc., and earn from $10 to $15 per week.
Others are less fortunate and do not earn
enough to pay their board. As a result
when their term expires they are in debt
to the government and are required to
remain until the dbtt is liquidated. In

How to Prepare a Few Dishes Good for the
Florida Dog Day Season.
CABBAGE SouP.-Chop a small tender
turnip, four potatoes, two onions, add a
teacup of chopped cabbage, one-half cup
of grated carrot, a few green or dried
boiled beans. Boil the cabbage and car-
rot half an hour, then add the other veg-
etables and boil another half hour in suf-
ficient waterto make a soup. When done,
add cream and seasoning, or milk and
butter; thicken with rice flour or corn-
starch. An egg well beaten may be
added last, simply letting it scald for a
moment. Squares of toasted bread or
granola may be used for thickening.
PaBSNIP AND PORK STEW.-Cut up a
pound of fresh, uncooked pork, or half
the amount of salt pork; put it on to boil
in two quarts of cold water; after it has
cooked an hour skim off the fat. Scrape
three or four good sized parsnips, cut in
inch slices and add to the stew, also an
onion sliced, and half an hour before din-
ner peel and cut up half a dozen potatoes
parboil a few minutes and add to the
stew. When done take up meat and veg-
etables, thicken the gravy and season to
taste; then pour over meat.
CREAMED CARROTS.-Pare and cut up
four carrots, put'them in a saucepan
with boiling water add salt and let boil
until they are perfectly tender, about an
hour and a half. When the carrots are
done put then in a dish where they will
keep warm while you prepare a sauce as
follows: Let one tablespoonful of butter
melt in the saucepan, add a tablespoon-
ful of flour with a pint of new milk and
stir carefully until the whole is perfectly
smooth; season with salt and pepper and
pour over the carrots. This should be

three g-eat gashes in his throat, any
one of which would have proven fatal.
Lying on the bed, in the same room,
was Miss Bruce, mutilated beyond any
possible recognition. A bullet had been
fired through both cheeks, a great hole
yawned in her throat where, evidently a
big knife had been repeatedly j ibbed,and
her face was crushed into a mass. One
could sink half of his hand into the
wound, made -.ith a gunstock: between
her nose and forehead.
Besides this horrible treatment she
bore evidence of having been ravished.
Miss Bruce's clothes were torn into shreds.
Blood ran in streams on the floor, satu-
rated the bed clothes and mattresses and
was spattered on the curtain and in
great red spots on the walls. When the
house was cleaned the clotted gore was
literally shoveled up and then floir
thrown on the fl ur to hide the evidence
of the crime as much as possible.
By Miss Bruce's side was Mr. Pack-

On the floor was a pistol alsa owned by
Mr. Packwood. A bloody knife was also

the kitchen into the house and barred the
door. The murderer grabbed the knife
from the table and followed. Mrs. Hatch
peered out of the'window:to see what the
trouble was and she was shot. The win-
dow was then smashed in. As the man
was entering Miss Bruce grabbed the pis-
tol from the mantel and drew the trigger
but the weapon missed fire. She then
ran for the shot-gun, aimed it at the man
and drew the triggers, but the hammers
fell upon empty shells. The fiend then
closed in on her and a desperatestruggle
ensued. He wrenched the gun from her
grasp and swung it around his head and
sunk the stock into her face up to the

the children were torn fom the beds
whither they had fled in terror to hide
themselves in the bed clothes, and were
slaughtered that they might breath no
word of the tragedy.
The clews were purely circumstantial.
First, it was known that Jenkins and
McRae lived in the same house.
McRae, some timebefore the crime, had
been a suitor of Miss Bruce, but rumor
had it that he had been rejected.

below New Smyrna, in Volusia County,
on the old Packwood place, from which
the murder gets its name. It is a lonely
spot and remote from any settlement,
The murder was committed on the 10th
of December, 1890. Mr. Packwood, the
brotherinlaw of Miss Bruce and the
father of little Frank, the day before the
night of the murder, left home for Or-
lando. Miss Bruce, fearing to stay alone
in the place, sent over a mile or two to
get her neighbor, Mrs. Hatch to come
and spend the night with her, or until
Mr. Packwood should return. Mrs.
Hatch went over, carrying with her her
little seven year old son Benny.
Saturday morning Irwin Jenkins, the
mulatto who lived on the McRea orange
grove, two or three miles south, stopped
at the Packwood place on his way to New

wanted him to do any errands for her in

house to do small favors of that kind for
Miss Bruce and Mr. Packwood. He found
the gate to the place open and cows in
the yard. Thinking something was
wrong, he continued on to the house, and
was frightened to find the window
smashed in. He looked into the house
and there saw at a glance that a terrible

DANERSON CONVICTED OF ,MURDER.
Circumstances Which Led to the Killing
,of Frank Boles,
PALATKA, April 24.-James Andeoren,
colored, was convicted by a iury tLis af-
ternoon of having murdered Frank
Boles, colored, at San Mateo,f Jan 15
last. The verdict was in the first degree.
and the prisoner was rnccmm(nded to
the mercy of the court.
As told by the testimony the circum-
stances of the killingI were these.' "It
seems there existed an intimacy between
Boles and the defendant's wife, and An-
derson had told Boles that he must keep
away from his home. "If you don't,"
said he, "I will kill you." Saturday
night, Jan. 13,Anderson heard a disturb-
anoe in his hen house and went out to see
what was the trouble. When he got out
in the yard he was shot at three times.
He stooped tolpick up a rail or stick
when some one ran and said: "I will get
you yet, damn you."
The defendant on Sunday about two
o'clock went to Mr. William McShane's
home, a white friend, and told him the
trouble, and said he wanted a gun to
protect himself. Mr. McShane had often
let him.have the gin to kill kawkis and
go hunting, He lent him the gun and
also gave him a litllemoney and told
him to go to town-Palalka-onthe
early train Monday and get out a peace
warrant, and also asked him to come by
and kill a hawk (for which he was ac-
customed to pay 25 cents each) before
.leaving for town and to leave the gun.
Monday morning about 6:50 the defend-
tand was seen by witnesses coming out
of McShane's gate with- the gun under
his arm. He passed and spoke pleasant-
ly to them. Boles was following wit-
nesses about 115 paces. They were all
.going to their woik. One of the wit-
nesses saw the shooting; the others te-
tified that they heard nothing but "'Ohl"
and then the shot. They looked back
-and saw Boles lying across the walk,
.with his head resting on the second wire
of the barbed-wirefence. Anderson walk-
ed on to the north and then turned west.
The shot had taken effect under the
left eye and was delivered at a distance
of ten feet. Anderson went right over to
'Mr. McShane's home, woke him up and
surrendered himself and asked him to
get the sheriff. He gave up the gun from
which was taken one empty and one
loaded shell. No. 4 shot was what was
used. Anderson says when he saw Boles
coming it was his intention to pass on
without saying anything, but when with.
in about ten feet of each other Boles
after .the day of: the crime, although
many people went to McRae's pl.ce to
see if he were there.
McRae and Jenkins sometimes made
orange wine at the grove, and once in a
while they had imbibed enough of it to
fire them with cou-age of the kind suffi-
cient to make them do alriost anything
if there was a motive.
Then there was the bullet taken from
the wall This bullet had passed through
Miss Bruce's cheek and bad not been
flattened. Any person familiar with fre-
arms could readily see that it belonged
to a 32-caliber pistol. Now for the 32
caliber pistol the search was made, blut
there was no one in the country who was
known to carry a weapon of that size.
Over a year after the crime small boy
was found with such a pistol in his pos-
session. When questioned where he got
it, he said that Marion Clinton gave it to
him. Traced further, it was discovered
that a railroad contractor, who had
been in the neighborhood with a gang of
men about the time of the crime, had
given, lent or sold this pistol to Clinton.
It was also learned that Clinton spent
the night of the crime with McRae and
This evidence was all presented to the
grand jury in session at D iL'nd during
February and March of last year. Mean.
while Jenkins had been arrested again
and put in j il at DeLand and Clinton
and McRae were present as witnesses.
Grand Juror Cowert resolved to resort
to a little strategy. He induced Clinton
to accompany him to the edge of town
and the two sat down together under
the shade of a tree. He told Clinton
that a man who turned State's evidence
was never punished and then drifted to
the Packwood murder and wormed out
of the boy some very incriminating state-
Like wildfire the news spread that
Clinton had conf ssed to being a partici-
pant in the crimes to the extent that he
accompanied McRae and Jenkins in a
boat to the Packwood house, but waited
in the boat until the j)b was finished;
that he lent his pistol to McRae and that
the latter did the shooting while Jenkins
cut the throats of the victims. Rumor
has it that all had gotten drunk on
orange wine and bitters before they left
the McRae place.
Acting on this confession the men were
indicted. But it was found impossible to
secure a jury in Volusia County and a
change of venue was taken to Lake
At the trial just concluded all the cir-
cumstances alluded to above were sus-
tained by the evidence of many witnesses,
but. Judge Broome refused to admit the
confession of Marion Clinton, holding
that it had been improperly obtained.
The convicted men are:
William McRae, a young white man,
highly connected, formerly of Sanford,
and a son of Dr. McRae of that city. He
is about twenty-six years of age, and is
rather good looking than otherwise.
His eyes and facial expression are mild,
intelligent and pleasant, and one finds it
tdp'lt to imagine himibs a murderer.
It holds that the sale of liiuiois not being
intrinsically unlawful, the State has no right
to treat it in a different manner from any
other lawful business, and that as it would
have no authority todebar any class of its cit-
izens from following any other lawful busi-
ness and dissolve its constitution, the State
similarly has no such right with regard to
the liquor business.
Tne opinion covers every conceivable
a, pect of the case. aid is generally sweeping
and condemnatory of the liquor law. Asso-
ciate Justice Pope, in an equally lenthly
dissenting opinion, maintains the constitu.
tionality of the dispensary act, based on the
right to exercise the police power, and holds
that all rights not reserved to the people
may in thtir interest be exercised by the
legislature. He invoets particularly against
the disposition of the judiciary to trespass
needlessly upon the domain of the legisla-
tive branch of the government.
Georgia White Caps.
The grand jury of Oglethorpe County, Ga
has found true bills for murder against Mor-
gan Golding, W. E. Shaw and Irwin Salmon,
prominent white planters, who were arrest-
edand released oncommitment trial for white
capping two months ago, when an old negro
Wiley James, was beaten to death. The
negro had induced some farm hands to quit
work, which, it is said, enraged the white
planters. There is much feeling in Ogle
thorpe County, and, if a jury cannot be
found to try the white-cappers, these cases
will be transferred to Clark County, it is
said that Governor Northern has employed
detectives to ferret out cases of white-cap
ping, as the outrages are becoming of such

It is the intention of the City Vigilait
League of which Dr. Park hurst is president,
to enter the field of politics this season and
oppose the regular machine candidates for
municipal office by men endorsed by the

suffrages of the people on the ground that
they are men whose character and reputa-
tion are without a flaw. This was the revel-
ation which Dr. Parkhurst made in New
York in the presence of a gathering of 1,800
people. The occasion was the annual meet-
ing of the City Vigilance League.
A Dutch Duel.
A duel, fought with pistols, took place
near Berlin between Herr Kinderlen, one of
the foreign office officials, and Hert Pol-
storff, editor of The Kladderadatsch. The
distance was fifteen feet. Five shots were
fired, and Herr Polstorffwas wounded in the
arm. The cause of the duel was an alleged
libel upon Herr Kinderlen, which the editor
published or allowed to be published in the
Ocean Rates Advance.
The Pacific Mail Steamship Company
has given notice of an advance of forty per

chandise $9 per ton, and on lumber $10 per

who do not wish such a radical reversal
of their every day life prefer to rent cot-
tages or rooms and set up housekeeping
in less primitive style. Still others, in
order to give their better halves the full
benefit of a change and relieve her of the
cares of housekeeping prefer to engge
board at, some of the numerous seaside
hotels which dot both the Gulf and At-
lantic coasts from Pensacola to Punta
Gorda and from St. Augustine to Lake
Worth. The charges at many of these
resorts are very reasonable and while it
may seem to the orange grower or farm-
er that he is spending a pile of money
for a few weeks' fun, we are of the

Curious and Useful Plants.
From Eastern Asia comes a plant, the
flowers of which contain a quantity of
juice that rapidly turns black or deep
purple. It is used by Chinese ladies for
eyeing their hair and eyebrows, and in
Jlaa for blacking shoes. Decidedly re-
markable is the camphor tree, from
which camphor is prepared by boiling
Ahe chopped branches in water. It is
mainly produced in the island of Formo-
ia. Inasmuch as it grows well in the
Southern States, there is reason to be-
tieve that the preparation of camphor
will some day become a profitable indus-
try in this country. The arnotta plant
has seeds coated with a red, waxy pulp,
which is dried and made into cakes. It
is much employed by the South Ameri-
san Caribs for painting their bodies,
paint being almost their only article of
-Iothing. As a commercial article it
mainly used as a coloring for cheese,
butter and inferior chocolates. From
India comes the klus-klus grass, the
brous roots of which yield a very peou-
liar and pleasing perfume. In India the
leaves are manufactured into screens for
doors and windows, which when wet
diffuse a refreshing scent.
Cause of Fruit Dropping.
Mr. Thomas Meacham, a well-known
authority gives his idea of the cause of
fruit dropping and failing to mature, as
Lemon and orange trees drop their
fruit, especially young trees, because of
imperfect fertihzation. Trees often
produce abundant blossoms which set,
but the young fruit drops off. This is
not only true of orange and lemon trees,
but true of apples and pears and all sorts
of other fruits, where, if we look under
a fruit tree soon after blossoming, thou-
sands of the young fruit can be seen on
the ground. These fall because they
have received no pollen on their stigma
while in blossom, resulting in what is
known as imperfect fertilization. It is
only when flowers have been perfectly
pollinated that the fruit continues to
maturity. Even after this fruit will
occasionally fall off, when there is a
large number on a tree. by reason of im.
lnlt his tomatoes, egg plants
and beans in'December or January, if it
be done during a cessaidn of extreme cold
the return of winter weather or an un-
reasonable frost may in a single night de-
stroy the labor of many weeks,(as it has
done in the past few weeks). In West
Florida we generally plant our cabbage
peas, beets, turnips, onions, lettuce and
all hardy vegetables from August 15th
to December 1st. Potatoes in January
and February. Right here I want to
dispel the idea of not saving our own
seed potatoes thousands of dollars are sent
out of our State every year for seed when
we allow the best seed wve can possibly
get to rot in our fields. If we let our
potatoes get thoroughly ripe, dig them
in a dry time, remove them immediately
and out in a cool, dry place (under the
house is a good place) they will keep per-
fectly sound. About the 15th of Au-
gust bed them like you would sweet
potatoes (I mean the small one abont the
size of a walnut). Keep the bed moist
and partly shaded for ten or twelve days
when they will be nicely sprouted, have
your land ready and plant the whole
potato. If the seasons are good by the
1st of November you will have a good
cropjof potatoes. These potatoes raised
in the fall are the very best seed that can
be planted the following spring. They
are earlier, more productive and are
superior in every respect. *
The potato and cabbage like most all
vegetable crops require the very best cul-
ture and the soil can hardly be made too
rich. The late Peter Henderson said to
grow any kind of vegetable crops suc-
cessfully, "you must use the right kind
of fertilizer, and to put on the land just
twice as much as you thought it needed,
then put on as much more and you would
have just about half enough," if this
applied to New York soil. I will leave
the growers of Florida to be their own
judges. JonN A. MOORn
Peanut Oil and OUve OIL
Nut one-fourth part of the so-called
"olive oil" sold in this country is really
what it pretends to be. The rest is made
frompeanuts mostly. The best peanut
oil costs only $1 a gallon, furnishing a
cheap and passable substitute or adul-
terant. Comparatively fewpeople know
the difference, any way. Cargoes of
peanuts are actually sent across the
ocean from America to be reimported as
"oliv.doil." The easiest way to distin-
guish the real from the false is to pour a
drop or two of nitric acid into the sam-
ple to be tested. Peanut oil thus treated
will char, but olive oil will not.

Give Your Famly a Summer Outing Even
if the Times are Hard.
As the long Florida summer is ap-
proaching it is well our people should
bear in mind the fact that all work and
no play is a very bad practice, and not
at all conducive to health, happiness or
longevity. Recreation and rest are es-
sential to every one and especially to
those who have long seasons of labor in
asemi-tropical climate. The time de-
voted to rest and recreation is never
wasted and the money spent seeking a
comfortable spot away from the scenes
of our daily labors in search of rest, re-
creation and change, is not squandered,
but is well invested.
The situation of Florida is such that
people residing anywhere on the penin-
sula can with little trouble and at small
expense reach the sea coast where sever-
al weeks of each summer can be pleas-
antly and profitably spent.
Of course there are all kinds and char-
acters of people in Florida as elsewhere,
and what would please one class would
be distasteful to another, consequently
it is useless to advise how these weeks
of recreation should be spent. The
main point however, is to spend them
pleasantly and restfully, to be comforta-
ble and to forget as far as possible, the
cares and worries of your every day life.
Some people find it more pleasant to
rough it, and they take their families to

[Paper prepared by John.A. Morse, of
Pensacola, and read before the Florida
Iosticultural Society at its annual meet-
The raising of vegetables for family
use only, as practiced by our forefathers
In their little gardens laid out in squares
lo be dug and cultivated exclusively by
hand, is a thing of the past, and in its
stead we have the broad acres of the
truck farmer, tilled with the most ap-
proved labor saving implements. Wheel
hoes for hand use, scarifiers, cultivators
and harrows for horse; the seeds and
commercial fertilizers are applied with
gamilar apparatus. Thus equipped the
tirea farmer takes rank among the most
prosperous of our citizens.
The raising of vegetables for the north-
ern and western markets is becoming
one of the leading industries of our
State, and is largely increasing each
year and a few years will find our State
almost one entire vegetable garden send-
ing out solid trains where now we send
Our friends in the southern part of
our State are particularly favored by
having a climate during the winter
months to be found no where else in the
United States, where the tenderest vege-
tables like the tomato, egg plant, beans,
cucumbers etc., grow to the greatest
perfection and bring big prices.
I aw only a few days ago account sales
for thirty crates beans shipped from Bar-
tow to a Chicago commission merchant
tbt sold for $128.00 or an average of
$4.27 per crate, it is true the railroads or
express company charged$30 for freights.
The commission man charged $12 for
selling them, $10 perhaps covered all the
other expenses. You will see the ship-
per netted with all this enormous expense
$'3.50 per crate. Of course this is an
extra price, indeed it is, but it shows
that there are people that will eat beans
it matters not what they cast, and if
that shipper had of had 1,000 crates to
ship the day he shipped those, there
still would have been nearly 2,000,000
people in Chicago that had no beans for
dinner that day. I mention this to show
you that there is no possible chanfte of
ever ever sticking the hungry, snow
bound citiesof the North with fresh veg-
etables during the winter months.
Almost every kind of vegetable is
grown in our matchless climate, but for
shipment to northern markets cabbage,
potatoes, Bermuda onions, tomatoes,
beans, peas, egg plants, squashes and
cucumbers form the bulk of the ship-
ments, in some localities. Cauliflower
and celery are very successfully grown,
and will in a few years be leading articles
and nearly always bring good prices.
The best time to plant the different kind
of vegetables must be determined by.the

Of the Grand Jury for the Spring
Term of 1894.
To the Hon. W. D. Barnes, Judge of the
First Judicial Circuit of Florida.
We, the grand jurors drawn and
impannelled to serve in and for
Washington county for the spring
term of court thereof 1894, respect-
fully submit this our final present-
We note that the county is com-
paratively free from crime of a seri-
ous nature, yet there are tliose who
do not scruple to apply to theim own
use and benefit live stock running at
large belonging to others, but we
trust that a few offenders sharply
punished will be tho means of break-
ing up the habit.
Our examination of the jail con-
vinces us that it might be kept in
a more cleanly condition, but the
keeper informs us that.it is impos-
sible to .o this so long as it is open
to all comers. We recommend that
it be fenced around with a suitable
fence, as:at present there is nothing
to preve1),m....gge-of firearms or
intoxicatng iqur to prisoners con-
fined therein. To this matter we
beg to call the special attention of
our county commissioners. Also
that the exterior of the jail ought to
be painted for preservation.
It is unnecessary to say that the
condition of the court house remains
as before, but, until the voters ex-
press their wishes at the ballot box
we would make no recommendations.
It is with pleasure we note that
our county school board granted five
mnolnths of school for the whole count,
for this scholastic year, and we trust
they will be able to continue it in
the future, so that the youth of the
county may have the equal chance
of a good common school education.
That if the residents of any district
of the county wish mole than this
they pay for it themselves. We
trust the board of education will not
adopt the system of high schools for
some parts of the county to the det-
riment of the common schools in
other parts of the same.
We regret that such a large
amount of the taxes for 1893 remain
uncollected, but are informed by our
tax collector that the delinquents
are, for the most part, non-residents. ,
The books of the county treasurer
show balances on hand at last quar-
terly settlement. The county cor- i
missioners' records show that all t
warrants have been drawn and paid
rom the proper funds.
All fines assessed at last term of t
court have been paid, and are now in e
hlie hands of the sheriff and heis i
preparedd to pay same over to treas- s
As far as our investigations have e
ions we learn that thle roads and
)ridges of the county are in a fair 1:
condition, yet might be improved if i
overseers do their duty diligently. i
We thank the Hon. Circuit Judge [
or his kindly advice given us at the j
ommencement of our duties, for the s
ourteous manner in which he has
rested us throughout. Also we b
hank States Attorney Milton for s
is assistance, and all the officers of n
court for various courtesies shown
We would recommend that copies

The Removal of the Remaini
of John Howard Payne.
The remains of the author c
"Home, Sweet Home" left the shore
of Tunis on board a French steamer
to be carried to Marseilles, when(
they were to be forwarded to Ameria
An admiring friend of the gifted poe
writing to tke New York Tribune a
the time said: I went to the not un
attractive and decidedly neat protest
ant cemetery of St. George, situate
on high, well-surrounded ground
within the city. I was aggreeabl3
disappointed in the appearance ol
this God's Acre, as I had read in
Almerican newspapers that Payne'i
grave was a neglected one in a
neglected burial ground. On tllI
contrary, the grounds were planted
with fragrant and flourishing rose-
bushes, splendid clumps of helio-
tropes, and hedges of brilliant carna-
tion pinks and geraniums, while the
walks were clean and smooth, and the
stones and monuments snowy white
in the motning sun. I should think
the inclosure contained about an acre,
and almost in the center of it was
the grave of Payne. At the head ol
the grave was standing a large and
beautiful pepper tree, branches ol
which bent tenderly and drool)ingly
over the tomb. This, the finest and
noblest tree in the place, was planted
by one of Payne's truest and best
friends in Tunis-M. Chappellie--
who was present at the death and
interment of the poet. From M
Chappellie and also Mr. Reade, the
British consul, under whose direc-
tions the disinterment took place.

The narrative of them is a pain-
ful one. Let it suffice if I write what
I heard touchingly and heartily said
by the two or three gentlemen pres-
ent at the exhumation who had
familiarly known Payne, that his
character through disappointments,
fancied loneliness, and long brooding
had become of a sad, soft and deli-
cate melancholy, that was, while
gentle and pitiful, at the same time
winning and beautiful. His illness
was a long and painful one, but lie
had most faithful and loving friends
in M. Chappellio, M. Pisani, Mr.
Reade, Mme. Chappellie (an Ameri-
can born lady, with a American
heart), and a certain, (now old)
Arab dragoman, whose attachment
to the poet was deep and sincere. I
saw this Aest man at the exhuma-
tion, wear h'his Arab costnnu be-
lieving th Mohamnedan reli on, but
full of Christlike humanity. Euro-
peans present at.the grave on this
sunny Friday morning were about a
dozen in numbers, several Arab gen-
tlemen being also on the ground.
The coffin was reached by the
workmen about 12 o'clock, and was
carefully lifted and placed on the
broad marble slab which for thirty
years had covered it and which bears
the following inscription:
E PLURIBUS UNIUM.
(Shield and Eagle)
In memory of Colonel John Howard
Payne, twice Consul of the United
States of America, for the city and
kingdom of Tunis, this stone is here
placed by a grateful country. He died
at the American consulate in this city,
after tedious illness, April 1, 1852.
Re was born at the city of Boston,
state of Massachusetts, June, 8, 1792.
Ris fame as a peot and a dramatist is
well known wherever the English
language is spoken, through his cele-
Inrated ballad of "Home, Sweet Home,"
and his popular tragedy of "Brutus."
On thie four edges of this slab is

Indeed, I found among the poet's
Friends an affectionate regard that

Sunder the circumstances I have stat-
e-d. The gloaming of the coming
evening had crept into the chapel

mellow radiance. The twilight came
Son apace and left the poor remains
to lie there until the morrow, guard-
ed by the faithful dragoman who in
life, as in death, was staunch and
Y faithful to the last.
Then the body was taken to the
Marina and put on board a boat and
t owed down the bay and out into the
open, where it was received on the
French steamer, which soon after was

THE SMITH RUBBER
The demand for.a practical machine induced us in 1881, to turt
from the old style of stump pullers and we made and put the first practical
machine of this class on the market. We threw out all sawed timber1
all common iron, all light pieces, chains, links, open hooks, springs, bolts,
straps, clamps, thimbles, splices, screws, gears and eccentrics, and at once
done away with all perceptible friction by reducing the number of pieces in
the machine from 47 to 3, these being properly formed and proportioned
giving %qual strength, making a stronger, more powerful ighte
handier, cheaper,, faster working and a more durable machine thaa
otherwise could be made, and to counteract the extreme prejudice against
the name stump pullers; the new machine was called the Smith Grubber.

Equal with the interest of those having claims against the government is
that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit of valuable inventions because
of the incompetency or inattention of the attorneys employed to obtain their
patents. Too much care cannot be exercised in employing competent and reli-
able solicitors to procure patents, for the value of a patent depends greatly, if
not entirely, upon the care and skill of the attorney.
With the view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless attorneys,
and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid patents, we have
retained counsel expert in patent practice, and therefore are prepared to

There are millions of acres of land
in Flerida covered with the palmetto
plant, which, before the land can 'be
cultivated, must qe grubbed out and
burned at a considerable outlay of
labor, If the roots of these plants
could be ground into pulp and man-
ufactured into buckets and other ves-
sels for domestic purposes, the clear-
ing of new land in the south would
be.favorably offset by the market
value of the roo.s. Ifi, n addition to
this, the tannic acid should be ex-

many people are looking towards St.

over which the place may be reached
will be found serviceable to those
wishing to visit us who have never
made the trip. Of the various routes
there is little if any difference in the
matter of expense Coming via

trips, every possible attention is giv-
en to the comfort of passengers, and
with favorable winds the trip from
Pensacola is made in from, twelve to
eighteen hours; or, take the P. & A.
railroad at Pensacola or wherever else
you may strike it, for Chipley; the
distance from here to St. Andrews
overland with a very good road, is 52
miles; the tiip ismade in one day,
and the prices charged will be as reas-
onable as circumstances will warrant;
or, write beforehand to Robt. Baker

is to be found in the BuoY, making a
date for him to meet you at Marianna,

Ala., over the M. & E. railroad and
by sieamner to Wewahichka, where
a hack can be found to convey you
sixteen miles to Wetappo, or you
may take passage with the mail car-
rier at Wewahitchka for Farmdale,
at quite reasonable rates; here con-
nection may be made with the East
Bay mail sailboats, making daily
trips up and down the Bay; and
the passage from the head of the
Bay to St. Andrews will be made
in a few hours, affording a delightful
ride over one of the finest bodies of
water in the world at small cost; this
route may also be taken advantage of
by taking the P. & A. to River Junc-
tion, thence to Gordon, Wewahitchka
and Wetappo. If the Wewahitchka
route be taken, dates may be fixed
ahead with parties there for hack
to be in readiness at any time.

Oldest Coal Mine in America.
St. Louis Republic.
When we consider the fact that the
who e eastern range of mountains,
those natural barriers that were first
encountered by the European ex-
plorers in America, are regularly
stratified with several seams of coal,
both anthracite and bituminious, we
cannot help expressing surprise when
the historian informs us that the first
American coal mine was discovered
in what is now the state of Illinois.
In Ilennepii's account of his explo-
rations in the West in tl;e years
1673-74, he tells of an outcrop of coal
on the Illinois river, not far from
Ottawa, "the shelly fragments of
which burned with a bright light,
and gave forth much heat." Herne.
don s ys that this is the first his-
torical mention of coal neing found
in what is now the United States.
Chemistry seems likely to furnish
substitutes for the expensive per-
fumes now made from flowers, pre-
dicts the New York Sun. It has
long been known that the exact odor
of the banana is produced in the
laboratory. Theie seems a possibil-
ity, however, that even when some
fragrant plants cease to be cultivated
for the perfumes many may become
of importance in surgery. It has
been discovered that sone such plants
are free from the attacks of insects
and from fungus gr'owtlis, and this
may be due to the fact that their e,-
sential oils have antiseptic qualities.
The eucalyptus yields an antiseptic,
and so do other familiar plant,~,

There are single' retail shoe stores in our large
cities which sell 2,000 pairs of shoes a day, making
a net profit of $250,000 a year. We sell shoes low,
but we sell a great many pairs, the clearproft on
our ladies', misses' and childrens'boea 'l a t least
ten cents a pair, and on our means' and boy3s' shoes
1 cents a pair. We shall establish hoe strsB In
each of the fifty largest cities of the U.S., and if
they sell only 300 pairs of shoes a day they would
earn $525,000 a year. We should be able to pay a
yearly dividend of $.25 a share, or over 50 per cent.
a year on the investment. We sell the stockat $10
a share. The price must inevitably be much more
than $10 a share. No stock has ever been sold at
less than this price, which is its par value. Stock
