close cropped hnair about his temples.
A glow of delight and rejoiciun thrilled
through his frame as he realized that

the precious freight was rescued from
the roblber band, and that somehow he
himself was now a prisoner.
Striving to move his head, he found
it softly, warmly pillowed, but as he
attempted to urn- it was held in place
by two little hands, one on each side.
Then as he foundmhis voice and faintly

Fanny Harvey's lovely face, pale and
framed with much disheveled hair,
was bending anxiously over him, but a
smile of hope, even of joy, was parting
the soft lips as she saw the light of re-
turning reason in his' eyes. At this
same instant, too, the hands that sup-
ported his face were suddenly drawn
away, and his pillow became unstable.
One quick glance told him the situa-
tion. ohe seats of the Concord had
been lifted out, blankets had been
spread within; he f as lying at full
length, his aching head supported in
Ruth Harvey's lap. Fanny, her elder
sister, was seated facing him, but at
his side.. No wonder Jim Drummond
could not quite believe his senses.
It was Fanny who first recov, nud her

curtain at the side, she called aloud:

eventually have starved these people out

And now, as with experienced hands
the sergeant stripped off Drummond's
hunting shirt and carefully exposed the
bruised and lacerated arm and shoul-
der, he plied his patient with questions
as to whether he felt any internal pain
or,soreness. "How a man could be
flattened out and rolled over by such a
weight and not be mashed into a jelly
is what 1 can't understand. You're
about as elastic as ivory, lieutenant,
and you have no spare flesh about you
either. That and the good luck of the
cavalryman saved you from worse fate.
You've got a battered head, a broken
arm and had the breath knocked out of
you, and that's about all. But we'll
have you on your feet by the time the
fellows come from Stoneman."
"But how about the young ladies?''
again asked Drummond wearily and
anxiously, for his head was still heavy
and painful and his anxiety great.
He was weak, too, from the shock.
"Won't they suffer meantime?"
"Well, they might-at least Miss
Ruth, the younger, might in the reac-
tion after their fearful experience, but
I'm something of a doctor, as I said,
and I shall be able to prevent all that."
"Well, by giving her something to
do. Just as soon as they've had a
chance to rest, both young ladies will be
put on duty. Miss Ruth is to nurse
"Suppose she doesn't want to?"
"The case isn't supposable, lieuten-
ant. She would have gone into hys-
terics this morning, I think- had she
not been detailed, as a preventive, to

quieted down the instant shap.wsartld
by her sister to climb into the"'agon
again and sit still as a mouse and see
that your face was kept cool and moist
and shaded from the glare. And now
Sergeant Wing's lips were twitching
with merriment, and Drummond, hard-
ly knowing how to account for his em-
barrassment, asked no more. His ama-
teur surgeon chatted blithely on.
"There's an abundant store of provi-
sions here-dried meat, frijoles, chile,
chocolate. You shall have a cup in a
moment. There's ammunition in plen-
ty. There's even a keg of mescal,
which, saving your presence, sir, as 1
am temporary -commander, shall be
hidden before the men begin coming in
with their prisoners. There's barley
in abundance for horses and mules,
water to drink and water to bathe in.
We could hardly be better off any-
Drummond looked curiously about

. .. ... - t --j Al.-,
invenle .l the '"g illutitne," and it is
1id that his own head was the first
cut of' by ii. Mr. Baukin was a can-
didate for governor in 1892, the first
general election under the poll tax
law, and his head came off. lie got
8,309 votes, while Governor Mitchell
received 32-064 votes, making in all
40,373. What happened the 26;367
voters who voted in 1888? Did they
die or did tlih poll tax keep th. m at
hole or did they vote? Some say
they voted and were not counted. If
that was so, then Baskin would have
34,673 or 2,612 majority over Gov.
Mitchel. Others say that they died,
but that is not likely as they were
more than a third of our voters, and
it would take an army to kill them.
I must come to the conclusion that
the pull tax -ut them off from the
polls. Thus the despotic act of a
few men deprived 26,367 citizens of
their (onstitutioinal right, the first
right of a man, the right to vote for
or against the official wklo is to vote
the laws by which he is to be gov-
erned. This outrage on libertj-
tis chain on freedom has been made
more galling and aggravating by the
neglect of gome collectors who take
the price of the vote and make no
entry on the book, and so you pay
the pr ice but get no vote. This dis-
grace to democracy y, this antidemno-
cratic imposition on men is now
brought under the gaze of the world
by the comptroller ordering the tax
collector to force the payment of the
poll tax, vote or no vote. The
Iramers of the state constitution
never intended that the poll tax
should be collected by force, when it
should, if ever, be used. The legis-
lature when making this contii.gnti
law never did intend it to be forced.
The'comptroller by forcing its collec-
tion will wipe it from the statute
books. Let the collectors b; all
means collect it, sell tlhe poor man's
bed, the pot in which his children's
food is cooked, his old ox, or his
leaky boat and kroken net, and if the
sheriff or deputy's fees aie not real-
ized declare him a pauper, We are
tild that this is. 1894, but feel in-
clined to think it 1794, and that the
Blue Laws are yetin force. We are
denied the eight to earry arms of the
new pattern; '. : denied the right
to vote and now our bodies are taxed.
Oh, spirit of Wat Tyler, of historical
fame. come to our help and save the

of was her touch upon my forehead."

We held our regular monthly pic-
nic and fish fry last Saturday at Bax-
ter, and it was a success in every
way. The day was lovely and every
one was happy. The principal dish
at dinner was flounders caught by
Allen Fay and Charlie Davis, and as
flounders catchers they are a suc-
cess. The tables wire bountifully
supplied with every dainty of the
season, and in ;ne went home hun-
gry. There were about seventy-five
people in attendance. In the/eve-
ning they'll met at Mrs. I. L. Fay's,
and spent the evening in playing
gaines and dancing until the regular
hour for closing, Elegant refresh-
ments were passed around with plen-
ty of hot coffee and lemonade, and
all "went merry as a marriage bell."

Doubtless there are those who do

We had our monthly picnic on
Saturday, June 2, at Baxter. Farm-
dale, Wetappo and Laird Mill Bayou
were well represented, there being
about 75 people in all in attendance.
Fifteen large flounders and several
dozen mullett and trout were fried,
and dinner was annonuced at about 1
o'clock. There wl.re all kinds of
breads, cakes, berry pies, oysters
and oyster pigs. Everybody enjoyed
themselves, especially the young peo-
ple, in swinging, etc. After dinner
there was a meeting held and com-
mittees appointed on barbecues and
general arrangements for the Fourthl
of July celebration to be held at
Stevens Point. After ha'iing a long
social chat, all were invited to as-
semble at the residence of tlhat high-
ly esteemed lady, Mrs. Ida L. Fay,

where music and dancing were the
order until a reasonable hour. We
noticed that Peter Parker, from Par-
ker, who came in too late to enjoy
the picnic, was in time to jin tile
paity and assist Van Strange with
the minsic, if lie could only play that
old tune: "If you can't dance chick-
en foot, you can't dance nothing. "
We also noticed that some St. An-.
drews boys were among the party:

that is very enticing to Bob.

Dry wea'lher, blackberries and fish-

should like to fishing in very dry
weather is not easy to answer, but so
it is. Every man feels that, lie must
go fishing and he goes. One of our
merchants got a new net and to show
it off, lie hung it on the.railing and
caught a hog. Another man; not to
be outdone, brought out his net also
and hung it up and a strange thing

may break his neck, and he was near
it. A strong wind came and spread
out the net, which scared the horse,
who, reaching out his right hoof to
gather it in, rolled head over heels,

mad, with the torn net, as streamers

The Chipley Banner wants to
know why "I am not in love with the

reply, I say, I have no personal
quarrel with them, :but have with
the system under which they work.

means foi a republic. Here are my

the rest can walk home and no 'e-
dress allowed them. When men are
paid by the piece, or so much per

though he g.)t only a share of the

paid a salary, or so much on the
conviction of a law-breaker and
held responsible for the persecuted
citizen, then they would be sure to
arrest only the guitly. There is not
a man, woman, or child in the union,
but has to contribute more, or less,
to this monster tax. If $200 is a sal-

make thirty-nine times his salary in

A Word More About the Sab-
Correspondence of the Bov.
Editor BuoY: With your per-
missio: a few words more on the
Sunday question. I do not Intend to
profound any theological conun-
drums, or borrow any divinely inspir-
ed club to knock those of my fellow-
mnen who differ from me in opinion,

"out of time," here on "terra firma"
or the hereafter; but should we who
make a freer and more rational use of
Sunday, get finally to. that extremely
uncomfortable place, we shall grace-
fully have to submit to the inevit-
able, and final consolation in the
presence of a goodly number of
people, even of the orthodox persua-
sion, at whose feet we shall sit, and
liear their sweet and instructive con-
verse; for after all, the strict Sab-
batariais are but a small faction of
the people of this world. There
seemiii te be no objection to any one
believing and obeying the Bible, from
thle first letter of Genesis to the last
letter in Revelations, if hi deems it
necessary to the welfare of his being,
but to insist that others should do
the same, under the American sys-
tem of state and church would be
quite another thing. In fact church
and state being separated, and look-
ing on the Sabbath as simply a re-
ligious obligation, there are many
people wlho tiink tlhat state might
as well be called upon to enforce
oth:r religious obligations as
well as the oldh Jewish Sabbath.
Under tbe American system of liberty
of co science, there seems to be no
reason why the state should be called
apon to enforce the mandates of any
church or sect.
For by any enforcement of this in-

Don't stay away, another day;
Is what I now desire to say:
For here you are invited
Where all mistakes are righted,
Please qome and see.
How happy you will be.
Leave your order,
If it is for a wheel-barrow,
We will fill all,
Both great and-small.
This business starts not to deceive you
With no thought, but to please you.
"Pay today, trust tomorrow,"
Is the motto we shall follow.

Or from his hide a lady's gaiter.
Or handsome sea shells from the beach,
Sold at a price within pour reach.

tolerance, our glorious system of
American liberty would be shattered,
and our situation would be easily
compared with the situation of Rome
as shehad been, and when our land is
enveloped by the midnight gloom of
religious intolorauce, we can t,;en re-
flect on the pleasure that seemed as
a flower whose perfume quickly evap-
orated, and whose brilliancy faded in
the hand of those who gathered it;
or as Burns beautifully wrote:
"Pleasures are like poppies spread,
You seize the flower its bloom is shed;
Or, like the snowflake in the river,
A moment white, then melts forever.
Or, like the borealis race,
That flit, ereyyou can point the place;
Or, like the rainbow's lovely form,
Evanishing amid the storm."
It must be said again, that so
long as no injury is infected, on any
one, by any innocent recreation, there
is no use:to threaten people who do not
accept the Jewish Sabbath with
divine and human ritribut.ion; for by
doing so, these threats will lose all
their force. All good and per-
fect actions inflict injury on no one,
but g od on some. Being fully
aware of the severe limitations and
frailties to which humanity is sub-
joct, there should be no deilre, and
none so vain as to give instructions
to the Almighty, especially as he is
abundantly supplied front other
sourcoa. SINCERITY.

Florida on Wheels.
Correspondence of the BUOY.
I'EOR.IA, ILL., MAY, 30, '94.
We just had a visit from Florida:
"Florida on Wheels," in her World's
Fair, attire. A beautiful car manu-
factured from Florida woods, and
adorned with paintings of magnolia
blooms, oranges, pine-apples, etc.,
and bearing many flags.
Within the car, were many jars
containing citrus fruits, snch as
oranges,,lemons, citrons etc.; the
product of tihe Indian River country,
Fine specimens of India rubber trees,
date palms, and other tropical plants
were growing in pots. A large tar-
pon, with its silvery scales, was sus-
pendedJo the roof the car, in com-
pany with a large alligator.
This car is sent out by the Jack-
sonville, St. Augustine & Indian
River railway, as an advortisment,
add as it rolls from city to city, and
from town to town, it shows to tihe
people, the possibilities of thle rtate

The Value of Pecan Culture
Correspondence of the Buor.
Some one in your state has sent
me a clipping from your paper say-
ing that a woman residing near St.
Andrews pass, seventeen years ago
planted some paean nuts, aad from
one ot these trees she had real-
ized thirty-two dollars: the past
We are glad to hear of her success
as it is on par of what we are get-
ting here fiom our wild cul-
tivated pecan trees of thin shell
I paid a grower last season
seventy-five dollars for the product of
one'tree, and if compelled to do so
will pay him $100 this season. We
have many instances here where
single trees have earned from forty to
eighty dollars per annum.
We know of one tree which in six
years in succession has paid its own-
er an average of over sixty dollar per
annum, for six years, but they are
the finest thin shell pecan in the
state, the crop of which we have se-
cured for this fall.
Twenty-five acres planted with
such nuts, will give a royal'fortune
annually after the trees are eight
years old, (they will commence bear-
ing at six years) earning more money
than can a bank having a large capi-
tal and with muc.: less isk.

is creating more interest all over the
country, than the growing of the

This is easily seen when known
that where the young tree is but one
foot above ground, the root is four

We don't say you cannot transplant
them, you can, and they will make
a beautiful shade tree, but that is
all. The tap root once cut will never
form another. We are aware, some
differ with us, who have the trees for
sale, but justice to those who spend
their meney in planting out pecan
groves compels ul to give the advice
which our best pecan growers here

The demand for a practical machine induced us .in 1881, to turn
front 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 timber,
all common iron, all light pieces, chains, links, open hooks, springs, bolts,
straps, clamps, thimbles, splices, screws, gears aid eccentrics, and at once
done away with all perceptible friction by reducing the number of piecw in
the machine from 47 to 3, these being properly formed and proportioned,
giving equal strength, making a stronger, more powerful, lighter,
handier, cheaper,, faster working and a more durable machine than
otherwise could be made, and to conuteiact the extreme prejudice against
the name stump pullers; the new machine was called the Smith Grubber.

Horieulturat an d Improvemeunt

ORGANT7rn JANUARY. 9, 1892.

The object of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St.
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing 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 le a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first question which will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
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 Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
The Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping, guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
or dam-iges from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrew. Bay country a few figures are given:
Price of; ana pet acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; -ost of planting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20
It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third

Eqtual 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
Obtain Patents In the United States and all Foreign
Countries, Conduct Interferences, fMake Special
xnraminations, Proseoute Rejected Cases, Register
Trade--Marks and Copyrights, Render Opinions as

to Scope and Validity of Patents, Prosecute and
Defend Infringement Suits, Etc., Etc.
If you have an invention on hand send a sketch or photograph thereof, to-
gether with a brief description of the important features, and you will be atb
once advised as to the best course to pursue. Models are seldom necessary. If
others are infringing on your rights, or if you are charged with infringement by
others, submit the matter to us for a reliable OPINION before acting on the

How to Reach St. Andrews.
The season is now upon us when it
is reasonable to suppose that a good
many people are looking towards St.
Andrews as a place of winter resort,
and a few words about the routes
over which the place may be reached
will be found serviceable to those
wisltng 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
Pensacola the comfortable schooners
Jessie P. and Nettie make regular
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 io St. Andrews
overland with a very good road, is 52
miles; the trip ismade in one day,
and the prices charged will be as reas-
onable as circumstances will warrant;
or, write beforehand to Robt. Baker
of St. Andrews, whose advertisement
is to be found in the BuoY, making a
date for him to meet you at Marianna,
Cottondale, or any convenient station
on the P. & A.; or, coming from the
north to Montgomery, Ala., to Bain-
bridge, Ga., over the Ala. Midland
railroad, thence to Wewahitchka by
steamboat or a cheaper route is to
come from Montgomery to Eufala,
Ala over the M. & E. railroad and
by sieamer to Wewahichka, where
a hack can be found to convey you
sixteen miles to Wetappo, or you
mnay 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; andl
the passage from the head of tihe
Bay to St. Andrews will be "mad(.
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.

Notice to Inventors.
There was never a time in the his-
tory of our country when the demand
for inventions and improvements inh
the arts and sciicInre. generally was so
good as now. The conveniences of
mankind in the factory and work-
shop, in the household, on the farm,
and in official life. .require continual
accessons to :lie appurtenances and
implements of each in order to save
labor, time and expense. The poli-
tical change in tihe administration of
government dt oes nlot affect the pro-
gress of tlie American inventor, whlo
being on tihe ale t, and.ready to per-
ceive the existing deficiencies, does
nut permit the affairs of government
to deter hii.nm from quickly conceiving
the remedy to overcome existingg dis-
crepannies., Too great care cannot
be exercised in choosing a competent
anld skillful attorney to prepare and
prosecute any application for a pat-
ent. Valuable interests have been
iost and destroyed in innumerable in-
stances by tIhe employment of in-

competent counsel, and especially is
this advice applicable to those who
adopt the "No patent, no pay" sys-
tem. Inventors who intrust their
business to these kind of attorneys,
lo so at imminent risk, as the breadth
and strength ot the patent is never
considered in view of -a quick en-
de'vor to get an allowance and ob-
tain the fees then due. THE PRESS

patrons front the unsafe methods
iheetofore employed in this line of

Origin ofSunday Sacredness.
Correspondence of the Buoy.
ED. Buoy:--Wien I sent you my
modest citation of the historical
record regarding the establishment
of Sunday as a day on which all
mankindwere to bow down and
worship, little thought had I that it
would provoke a controversy, much
less that a Trnthfinder would arise
to overwhelm me; neither now do 1
propose to prolong such a controver-
sy, but I claim the common right
belonging to me as the first in the
argument, to the closing and rebut-
ting presentation.
First, then, Trutlsceker did not
even intimate that Constantine was
the author of Sunday keeping; but
that he was the first to unite .he
state to the church and make it sin-
ful to do things on that day which
were admissable on any other day.
Neither does it follow that because
the State of Florida and almost every
other government in the civilized
world has imitated Constantine's
example and passed laws to punish
the Sunday worker that it or they
are te originators of its sacredness.
Truthsecker merely wished to show
tfhat instead of being of divine origin
it was like all other written laws,
originated by man, and by man may
be repealed, amended, or even vio-
lated with no fear tof punishment
from a higher tribunal than that
which enacted it.
Now, let us go a little farther and
see what law of rest tle Creator did
make and how it is observed. We
find the time divided into day and
night, with considerable more of the
former than the latter. Who will
dispute the evidence that the day
was made for work and the night for
rest? Aside from man almost the
whole animal kingdom obeys tihe
law; but what does man do? From
the earliest to the present day we
find him straining his energies to
produce, through science, an artifi-
cial light, by the aid of which he can
violate the unwritten law of the
Creator; but who ever heard of tlie
passage of a law to punish this class
of offenders?
Trutlfinder is most happy in in-
forming us how the sacredness came
about, saying "it was on Sunday
Christ is REPUTED to have risen from
the dead." Thalt word 'reputed" is
well used, for there are hosts of peo-
ple who, like Truthseiekcr, disclaim
any such miracle unless APerchance
time enterprising disciple of- Escu-
liiiunu.s thought t. tturnllthei remains
to account by mnoomiing tiht bones for
surgical instruction.
To one denies that the Christians
were accustonied to keep Sunday; no
one wishes to prevent th n from
keeping it as sacredly as they wish;
but there are those who have the
temerity to ask that they be permit-
ted to observe it as best suits their
inclinalions--even to going fishing
or Il,eing it the garden.
I am also with Malachy in wish-,
iig we night have two Sundays a
week--not that the privilege of
breaking two would affitrd more sat-
isfaction than one; but that those
who could afford it might enjoy more
rest; but I would see them divorced
from the civil statute books and the
state's estimate of sinfulness elimi-
In closing this controversy I hope
that both Trutlifiuder and Malachy

will understand me, that I don't dis-
pute thie written law handed down
from the dawn of the Christian era,
but I do dispute that the Creator
placed any mark on one day to dis-
tinguish it oni another, or that look-
ing at it morally it is any more sin-
ful to labor on Sunday than amny
other day.
I admit also that it would be well
if the human race would rest one day
in seven; and that all mankind ought
to rest during the night, .which was
evidently intended by the Creator for
Dot Sacred Sunday.
