Correspondence of the Buov.
ED. BuoY:-I have had no disposi-
tion to engage in a controversy on
the Sunday question and do not now
intend to do so, bit several of your
correspondents have asked some
simple questions that had, perhaps,
as well be answered. A word with
each of these:
"Truthsceker" in his anxiety to
shut me off by claiming the right to
close a controversy without further
reply made the impression that he
preferred to conceal the truth rather
than to find it. Besides he took the
pains to deny the -resurrection of
Christ, which is the cardinal doc-
trine of the New Testament. The
only remedy for heretics and skeptics
is to admonish them and let them go.
"Hans" adopted the Dutch style
because, often, funny and at the
same time sensible, things are said
in that language; but "Hans" sig-
nally failed to say anything either
sensible or funny. The only points
that deserve notice about his article
are (1) the form his skepticism takes
and (2) his misapprehension of what
the preached told him. He does not
have the boldness to deny the resur-
rection, but denies that Christ rose
on Sunday. But we know He did
nt rise before sunset on Saturday
because the Roman soldiers were put
there to guard the tomb that night.
-From the first few verses of Matthew
28th, it can easily be seen that the
earthquake and resurrection took
place at about the time the women
went to the sepulchre. Three of the
evangelists expressly say this occur-
red on the morning of the first day
of the week. Mark repeats. the fact
in the 7th verse of the 16th chapter:
"Now when Jesus was risen on the
first day of the week," etc.
I do not care to ransack early
church history in order to show the
general observance of Sunday by the
Apostolic churches, but I will give
yoi one or two quotations from
wounaeda. I canrt snooT now, out I

Then down he scrambled, giving one
look at Moreno and his sleeping guard-
ian as he passed, then gave a low toned
order to Walsh:
"Saddle your horse again and ride

thing of a serious nature was impend-
ing, and that he could not get away at
all without their knowing it. What
he desired was to conceal from them
that there was any danger from
Just as he expected, both girls were
eagerly awaiting him at the entrance to
the cave. His revolvers were in there
beside the rude couch on which he had
slept so peacefully.
"Now are you ready to return to hos-
pital and proper subjection?" asked
Miss Harvey laughingly. "It is high
time. What could have tempted you
to climb to that high point?"
"Why, it's the first chance I've had
of a look around," was the answer.
"This is an awfully strong spot for a
place of refuge. You are safe here,
safer than anywhere between Yuma
and Tucson, now that the former pos-
sessors are scattered. But did you hear
what took Wing off?"
"No, he didn't stop to explain mat-
ters. He simply dashed away without
even a saddle. 'Something I must
look after,' was all he "vouchsafed to
"Well, the men just in tell me the
paymaster's safe was spirited off. Con-

wagon and onto a burro, and now we
are all keen to get it back. Of course
1 can't sleep again until we know.
Some of our people are coming slowly
up the valley, and Wing went on down
to meet them."
But all the time he talked so airily
with the elder sister, Ruth stood watch-
ing him with suspicious eyes.
"M1r. Drummond, please do not go,"
she broke forth. "You have no right
to--now." And James, the dissembler,
found himself trapped.
"Go 1 nmuht, U.uthio," he said, with
sudden vhanga of anner. "

Then with sudden impulsive move-
ment he bent, kissed her forehead and
turned as suddenly away.
When the sisters looked into each
other's eyes a moment later, one face
was blushing like the dawn, the other
was pallid with a new and deep anx-

a hundred yards frcm the camp.
When the spot was reached, the
officiating minister commenced with
an extempore prayer, during. which
all knelt round the grave. So far
all well; but the prayer was unneces-
sarily long, and at last some of those
who knelt began in an abstracted
manner to finger the loose earth that
had been thrown up from the grave.
It was thick with gold, and the ex-
citement was immediately apparent
in the kneeling crowd.
Upon this the preacher stopped,
and inquiringly said:
"Boys. what's \that? Gold!" he
continued, "and the .richest kind of

The poor miner was taken from
his auciferous grave and was buried
elsewhere, while the funeral, party
with the parson at their head, lost no
time in prospecting the r. w dig-
worthy sources:. Ignatius was the
pastor of the church at Antioch in
Syria from the year 70 to 107. He
was the disciple of the Apostle Johin,
and his church had the ministrations
of other inspired apostles. He says:
"Let everyone that loves Christ keepI
holy the Lord's Day, the queen of
days, the resurrection day, ie high-
est of all days.". "Let us CIristians
no more Sabbatize, but keep the
Lord's day." "Wherefore if they

As is easily shown the primitive
churches invariably met on the first
day o'f the week, and Christ and the
holy ghost chose that day to meet
them. Schriptural. example is as
binding upon Christians as a com-
Now, what the preacher told him
I suspect was this: As a matter of
religion Christians are morally
bound to observe the Lord's day. No
Christian should seek to entangle
himself again in the bondage to law.
Suppose, for instance, the fourth
commandment is binding, then the
penalty for its violation is also bind-
ing, which was death. "Everyone
that defileth it shall surely be put
to death" (Ex. 31:14.) Christians
are not living under the old dispensa-
tion of law, but there is in the Chris-
tian heart grace to secure his relig-
ious observance of the blessed day
which Christ and the spi.it honored
anid which Christians of every age
have uniil' tilly kept.

eXj exeiiel.ice has t4inglt the world'
that one day of rest in seven is for
the best interest of man, and legis-
lating for that interest the state
stipulates that business shall cease
on that day. As a civil law it is on.
a level with other civil laws and the
fact that Sunday was selected is.due
to the virtual unanimity of sentiment
among citizens and the legislators
that it is as good as any from a civil
standpoint. But for this sentiment
some other day might have been
appointed, and from a civil stand-
point any other day would have done,
Your self-styled "Deacon" seems
worse puzzled than the bogus Dutch-

a murder, so circumstances may jus-

another. The power that makes a

with perfect consistency. -
A Funeral in the Gold Diggings.
In the old Californian "days, one
of the miners having died, and being
much respected, it was determined to
give him a regular funeral. A dig-
ger in the vicinity who, report said,
had once been a powerful preacher in
the United States, was called upon
to officiate, and, after "di inks all
round," the'pa:ty proceeded with
becoming gravity to the grave,
which had been dug at a distance'of

yet you do not seem to have had more
than a cat nap. Twice I zhav_ stolen

was fearful of waking you, you slept
peacefully through it all."
"Well, I must have slept a couple of
hours anyway, and I slept soundly until
within the last few minutes. Has
none of the men got back yet, Miss
Harvey? Do you know what time it
is? I suppose Wing is sleeping."
"Mr. Wing ought to be sleeping, but
he isn't. The sentry--Patterson I think
they call hmn-summoned him up to
the lookout there in the rocks, oh, about
an hour ago, and when the sergeant
came back he mounted his horse and
rode away down the canyon. He said
there was something requiring his at-
tention. But you are to drink this
chocolate and lie still. "
Drunmnond slowly strove to rise.
He was too anxious, too uervou3, to re-
main where he was.
"And none of thonm has returned
yet?" ho asked. "I cannot understand
that. No, please do not strive to detain
me here. I'm perfectly able to be up
and about, and if Wing is gone it's niy
business to look after things."
Over among the rocks across the
narrow canyon the first object to meet
his gaze as he arose was a : n. ., reclin-
ing there bound and helpless, while at
hand a soldier had thrown himself on
his saddle blanket and was sound asleep.
The plash of the waters in the brook,
dancing and tumbling down the chasm,
made sweet, drowsing music for his
ears, a lulling, soothing sound that ex-
plained perhaps the deep slumber of
his trooper friend.
"I heard Mr. Wing tell that man to
lie down and sleep," said Miss Harvey
as the young officer's eyes seemed to
darken with menace at the sight of a
sentry sleeping on guard. "Moreno is
securely tied, and both Patterson up
there and I hero are now his keepers.
The senora and her daughter are in the
other cave, forbidden to go near him. "
Glancing up at the stunted cedar
where Patterson stood faithful to his
trust, Drummond saw that he was
peering steadily southward through the

hailed. "Where is Wing? Any of the

"Wing has gone on down-the valley,

didn't come fast enough to suit him.

Indeed almost at the moment the

the dejected mule team came into view
around a jutting point, the dingy yel-

soldier in the driver's seat handling the
reins, the other riding behind and lead-
ing his comrade's horse.
"Come up here to the mouth of the

can find a much better looking child for his age,
eight years, than our boy. For this picture of
health his mother and also myself attribute it to
the use of that most valuable remedy, Hood's
Sarsaparilla. His trouble before taking the
medicine was an affliction with boills, and a gen.
eral breaking out all over his body. Of course
from such suffering the child became weak and
a general prostration of the system was a natu.

ED Buor: A number of citizens of
East Bay and the settlements north
Bayou George have ar anged to meet
at the Nash Ferry on Bayou George
on the morning of of the second Mon-
lay in next month (July) for the
purpose of building a bridge across
the uayou. This bridge is. an actual
nece-sity to East Bay an;l will great-
ly benefit St. Andrews a!so, as it
will, by changing the route of the
road at Traveler's Option, replace
five mi'es of bad road with five miles
of good road. Labor must be donat-
ed and it will depend upon the lib-
erality of tile people whether we ca u
complete thie bridge or not. The
lumber and tools except axes will be
on the ground. In the interest of
tlie bridge .may we ask you to give
conspicious notice and call for assist-
ance through your paper.

WILLETT' MILL BURNED.
Mill and Machiaery Completely
Mannu tact uredi Lumber in Ashes.
The early riser on Friday morning
last, on looking in the direction of
Willett's saw mill was shocked to
see pr,)-oui:'lng from there a sheet of
flame such as caln only be equaled
where large quantities of combusti-
ble material becomes ignited, Such
headway had the flames gained that
the uselessness of any attempt to
st'y them was at once apparent and
spectators could only look on and see
the work of destruction cease when
the material upon which it fed was
It seems that the fire had broken
out from some unaccountable cause
at just about daybreak and once
having got u. iIr way the work of
destruction was swift and sure.
5Mr. Willett, as has always been
his custom visited and inspected the
mill at abQiut ten o'clock the night
before, and left everything as he sup-
posed entirely safe; but tile fire must
have bee: smoldering in some place
which escaped his observation; and
breaking out after many hours soon
destroyed the mill.
The mill had been working quite
steadily recently and the newly man-
ufactured lumber was piled up in and
around it in large quanttities and is
of course a total loss.
Mr. Willett haid recently added a
new and powerful engine and other
machinery, and this loss will fall
most heavily upon him, as no insur-
anse was carried; in fact very little in-
surance is carried by any one on tho
Bay, for the reason that ths means of
fire protection are so meagre that
rates are practically beyond the
reachof ordinary business, and while
it is a calamity to be burned out it
is scarcely less so to swamp the busi-
nesa by keeping up insurance.
The BooY is informed thAt the mill
will at ouce be rebuilt, .and hopes
this may bie reliable although Mr.
Willet has not as yet so' assured the

been report cl. but we should judge
it to be in the neightborbood of $5 -

This is a calamity that will not be
felt alonee by Mr. Willett. for bqing
the only mill at present in operation
in the immediate vicinity of St. An-
drews. it will operate as a check up-
on the contemplated and already
conimnencel improvements, besides
d' troyin'g almost the onl business
offering employment to labor, upon
which several families were depen-
dent for the means of suptlort.
Chicag'o's Novel Bridge.
It is claimed that the new bridge
over the i.outh branch of the Chicago
river is the only one of' its kiind in
existence. On either bank rises a
tower of iron lattice woik 191 feet
high. The bridge, 89 feet in span
and weighing 300 tons, extends be-
t\ een them, its ends fitting into
grooves. It is fitted with counter-
weights, cables and pulleys all of
which are governed by a 70-horse-
power stec m engine,. WV 1en the
bl:dge is to be opened the engineer
throws off the balance, and the
bridge rises smoothly and horizontal-
ly in its grooves, halting at a height

FLORIDA fOR HIUNJ OERS.
An Ideal Pfib for Those
Love Rod and Gun.
The Plantations of Jefferson and Leon
Countles, Where "Bob White" Can Be
Found at Home-Other Places and
Other Sports Offered by Florida
There is perhaps no section in this
great country of ours that offers so much
of pleasure to the lover of the rod and
reel-the dog and gun-as our own fair
Florida. While we cannot boast of
broad-a&tlered elk, so rapidly disappear-
ing from the plains and hills of the great
Northwest, or of the rarely found moose
of the more northern and more rigorous
climate, or of the savage grizzly or silver-
tip of the snow-capped Rockies, we cer-
tainly can offer to that great army of
sportsmen, who wisely desire to combine
physical comfort with the exhilarating
excitement of sports aield, afloat or in
camp, a greater variety of sports, envi-
roned by the most hospitable associa-
tions of generous people and indulgent
climate to be found in any land. My im-
pressions have been largely enstamped by
my experience for years upon the red hills
S of old Jtfferson, the 'flat woods" of Tajy-
lor and Wakula and the waters of the
Gulf of Mexica and its tributaries, the
Econfina, Aucilla,Wacissa andSt. Marks
Rivers, and an intimate association from
childhood with our beautiful lakes that
nestle among the hills of Middle Florida.
Where is there a land more inviting to
the lover of "the cream of all shooting,"
the pursuit of plump Bob White, than
the boundless area of corn stubble upon
the plantations of Jefferson and Leon
counties. Perfectly adjusted-planned by
nature,with just enough branch and brier
cover to protect the young birds from the
marauding hawk, and water in plenty
from active spring branches at all times
to supply the wants of the feathered
brownies. With the rich seed of the an-
x iual "beggar weed" for food and fine
broom sedge for shooting cover-this is a
typical paradise for the quail hunter.
i'he large plantations are open,' with a
day's drive after you enter the enclosure
and in man places not an intervening
fence. The landholders are friendly and
preserve the original type of Southern
hospitality, so long since growr- into a
proverb. The birds are in abundance,
and every circumstance invites even the
indifferent to take a turn at the gun and
follow the dog. I count the most profit-
able hours of my busy life as those few
spent with some boon companion in a
day off upon the hills of old Jefferson, as
wefollowed our faithful dogs in quest of
the brown beauties. It has been the re-

for the reason that I love it above all

quail shooting we have the winter quar-
ters of the Jack snipe, and our fields
abound in meadow larks and doves, all
of which afford good shooting. To the
owner of the Beagle or rabbit tound the
old sedge aelds furnish abundant game.
Not a few of the toothsome woodcock are

If larger game is sought to gratify the
ambitious appetite of Nimrod, the "flat
woods" bordering the Gulf furnish rare
opportunity for the work of a Winchester

There is a large area of this wild country
uninhabited by man and unknown, ex-
cept to the adventurous hunter or hardy
cedar cutter. This country is unfit for
agriculture and remote from railway
transportation, and for years to come
must be nature's preserve for the deer,
bear, wild turkey and panther. Parties
are made up for a ten days' trip-it re-
quiring one day to go and one to return

enjoy the sport of shooting and the lus-
cious fare of fsh, oysters and game every
Our wild fowl shooting is very fine.
The waters are alive with Mallard, Teal,
S Blackhead, Widgeon and other ducks.
The lakes among the hills, and the rivers
afford fine shooting. The Miccosukee
Lake, distant five miles from Monticello,
shows an area of over 5,000 acres of
shallow water, grown up in grass, flag,
lilies and buttonwood scrub, and 1 think
it is no exaggeration to state that at
writing (November 24), one might see in
one day above its waters 4,000 to 5.000
ducks. It is possible that this promising
.and conveniently located property may
oneof these days become the matohless
preseiiYe of some wealthy syndicate.
With all of its rich possibilities, if
drained and subject to cultivation, it
offers so many advantages to the syndi-
cate of wealthy sportsmen as to have

New York Herald, is the first institu-
tion of the kind worth speaking of,
started by the Chinese government,
which, despite its craze for western
arms, and foreign ships of war, has
hitherto made no provision whatever
for treating its wounded. The college
is upon an extensive scale and will be
under the charge of a distinguished
graduate of -Dublin university, who
was selected for the post by the late
Sir A. Clarke. The establishment of
the college is largely due to the per-
sonal efforts of Dr. Irwin, the viceroy's
medical attendant, and to a talented
Canadian lady, Dr. King, who exer-
cised much influence upon the late
Lady Li, and she, in turn, had long
urged the viceroy to lay the founda-
tion of an institution where the Chi-
nese might be taught the knowledge
of the west in the healing art, in
which both the viceroy and his late
wife strongly believed. Already some
twenty well educated, English speak-
ing young Chinamen have entered the
college, and teaching has already com-
menced. The opening of the new in-
stitution was attended by a pleasing
ceremonial, in which the foreign and
Chinese officials displayed the most
friendly relations and gave utterance to
the most amicable sentiments toward
each other. The aged but still vig-
orous viceroy evinced the liveliest in-
terest in the entire proceedings.

Canoes of Florida Indian~s
TeC Indians of southern Florida who
navigate Lake Okeeohobee, have an in-
genious device that steadies their long
narrow canoes in the shallow but
often fiercely tr.-ubled waters of the
lake. Each canoe has a projecting
cornice, so to speak, above the how,
so that the waves, instead of dashing
over the craft, lift it high out of
water at the prow. The canoe is ad-
mirablyd adapted for its purpose, be-

FRUIT FOR MEDICINE.
A Leading Physician Advises the Free use
of Fruit as a Preventive.
A London physician has a very inter-
esting paper in the current issue of the
London Lancet on the uses of fruits in
the relief of diseased conditions of the
body. To us of this land of fruits the
writer'sarticle is worthy of careful peru-
sal, coming as it does from one who has
made the medical uses of fruits a study
for nearly a generation. The physician

Under the category of laxatives, oran-
ges, figs, tamarinds, prunes, mulberries,
dates, nectarines and plums may be in-
cluded. Pomegranates, cranberries,,
blackberries, sumac berries, dewberries,
raspberries, barberries, quinces, pears,
wild cherries and medlars are astringent;
grapes, peaches, strawberries, whortle-
berries, prickly pears, black currants
and melon seeds are diuretics; gooseber-
ries, red and white currants, pumpkins
and melons are refrigerants and stom-
Taken in the early morning an orange
acts very decidedly as a laxative, some-
times amounting to a purgative, and may
generally be relied on.
Pomegranates are very astringent, and
relieve relaxed throat and uvula. The
bark of the root in the form of a decoc-
tion is a good anthelmintic, especially
obnoxious to tapeworm.
Figs, split open, form excellent poul-.
tices for boils and small abscesses.
Strawberries and lemons, locally applied,
are of some service in the removal of
tartar from teeth. Apples are correc-
tives, useful in nausea, and even sea-
sickness and the vomiting of pregnancy.
They immediately relieve the nausea due
to smoking. Bitter almonds contain hy-
drocyanic acid, and are useful in simple
cough; but they frequently produce a
sort of urticaria or nettle-rash. The
persimmon, or dyospyros, is palatable
when ripe, but the green fruit is highly
astringent, containing much tannin, and
is used in diarrhea and incipient dysen-
tery. The oil of the cocoanut has been
recommended as a substitute for codliver
oil, and is much used in Germany for
phthisis. Dutch medlars are astringent
and n6t very palatable. Grapes and
raisins are very nutritive and demulcent,
and very grateful in the sick chamber.
A so-called grape has been lauded for the
treatment of congestion of the liver and
stomach, enlarged spleen, scrofula,
tuberculosis, etc, Nothing is allowed
but water and bread and several pounds
of grapes per diem. Quince seeds are
demulcent and astringent; boiled in wa-
ter they make an excellent ,soothing and
sedatlye lotion in inflammatory diseases
of the eyes and eyelids.
THERE are a number of people
who imagine that they will suc-
ceed in Florida if they can only get
there. Unless one is industrious
and willing to work he will find it
just as hard to succeed in Florida
as in any other part of the world.
Florida does not want the dissatis-
fied man. We want good, live, pa-
tient, industrious settlers, who do
not expect to get rich in a month
or in a year. There have been a
few settlers who arrived at Lemon
Bay that when they were offered
work got sick. The very idea of
these people working was enough
to give them a spasm. To all such,
our advice is, keep, away from
Florida, particularly Lemon Bay.

We hardly think the profession will
grow in popularity, yet we would not
discourage those earnest workers and
helpers, but we believe that the more ad-
vanced house-keepers will devise better
plans than the above. One we have in
mind is to discard the old method en-
tirely and have things so arranged that
the work is accomplished before it is
fully realized that the house is cleaned.
"How can it be done?" Without the
least trouble in the world. Take it step

will be surprised at the advance you
make. Then you do not wear yourself
out bodily and mentally and are free of
all the worry and expense of hiring two
or three pretending to be helpers who
usually stand by and watch you do the
hardest and most tedious of thetask after
all. Get some good helper,a man if possi-
ble, to do the heavy moving and harder
work and by doing little at time and in
such a masterly way that itdoes not mar
the peacefulness of the home, we believe
the secret will have been solved. What

Wtal flfwers to Use 1^ Decoration and
How to Uso T!hem.
The following directions, from The
Household, may readily be followed in
this State, and during any month in the.
year, by utilizing such flowers as this
climate produces. Of course, in this
State we have but few of the flowers
mentioned, but the blossoms of the china-
berry tree are an excellent substitute for
the lilac, peach, pear, wild plum, dog-
wood and other blossoms, are abundant
in their season:
So many handsome flowering shrubs
bloom this month that we are moved to
make the most of them, while they last,
for decorations of all sorts. The lilacs,

and graceful, and adaptable for number-
Quaint "lilac teas," with white and

side each plate, are most delightful af-
Pretty bouqurt-green for arranging
with such flowers is sometimes hard to
find, but the filmy fronds of the dick-
sonia fern, now, uncurling along all the
paths, mingles well with anything. A
bowl of these ferns and clusters of pink
and white drooping deutzia tassels set in
the center of a small mirror edged with
sods of white clover, or a rim of arbutus,
makes a simple but elegant little center-
piece for a small dinner. With this may
be used, beside each cover, small sprays
of the rosy deutzia flowers and ferns.
Sweet peas begin to bloom in May, and
they are the fashionable flower just now.
Their saucy. curling tendrils, odd, pale
green leaves, and bright, delicately col-
ored, ir;agrant flowers are the perfection
of grace and daintiness either for bou--

pink, white and lavender-colored blos-
soms are prettiest for use as cut flowers,
but choose your combinations carefully.
To jumble all sorts of light and dark
colors carelessly together destroys half
their beauty. One of the prettiest sym-
phonies in pink that I ever saw was a
bouquet of half-blown La France roses
and Blanche Ferry sweet peas.

A New Profession now Open to the Womai
Who Likes to Work.
We have just read an article bearing
on housecleaners, women who make it a
profession, who study the art, and have
offered their services to go from place to
place, relieving the women of the home
of all the cares and trials that usually
attend such times. We had hoped to
see the day come when this great bug-
bear, house cleaning, would be a thing
of the past. Women are capable and
are fast falling into a new method of
conducting the home, so as to have no
set time for this tearing up, pulling
out and putting in. But the subject of
professional house cleaners is before us
and we must face it and see what there
is in it. A northern paper contains the

.1 now open the ground wide and three
inches deep for slips, put my slips in
and press the outer leaves down, cover
with soil and tramp firmly. By this
plan the leaves hold the plant firmiy in
the ground until the plexus of the roots
are well formed, and no detriment ever
after that. I plant the suckers the same
way, from four to six inches deep. The
more firmly the plant is set in the ground
the better. In cultivating the plants
step on top of the leaves rather than push
them sideways, as a side push may lear
the leaf partly loose from the stalk.

to gastric juice, and will digest food
without effort on the part of the stom-

table and most effective medicine. A
factory to crystalize the fruit would not
be expensive. This fruit would sell
readily at 25 cents per pound wholesale.

Thij m'o t delicious and highly prized
of all fruits waq first~found by-Balboa
growing wild in Central America. It is
now cultivated in the eastern archipel-
ago and most other tropical and semi-
tropical countries. It grows upon a
stalk something like a cabbage from two
to four feet high. It is propagated by
slips and suckers, as it does not often
produce seed. The seed is dark, about
half as large as a flattened apple seed.
The slips are obtained from the top of
the stalk at the base of the fruit, from
two to a dozen in number. The crown
lip, at the summit of the fruit, is as val-
uable as the other slips The fruit
should be taken off by some pointed in-
strument inserted under the apple, pry-
ing it off, so as to leave the slips attached
to the top of the stem or stalk, that they
may grow. These slips are sometimes
small when the apple is ripe and at
other times a foot long.
The old stalk ratoons or sends up
sprouts from the stalk and from the
ground, called suckers, from two to five
or six, which in turn become main stalks,
the previous one wilting and drying up.
These suckers are sometimes two feet
high when the first apple is ripe, and
will ripen an apple in from six to eleven
months after the apple is taken off from
the parent stalk. If the sucker is pulled
off and planted out, it will ripen an apple
in the same time that would be required
if left on the stalk. The rule is that
slips will ripen fruit in two years and
suckers in one year from planting, gen-
erally in a less time.
The best time to plant is from June to
October. The shps being small are apt
to get sanded, the sand settling in the
bud and injuring the plant. It is some-
times removed by a blast of air from a
bellows, or by pouring a cup of water
into the bud at an elevation of three feet
which washes it out. The best mode is
to put a teaspoonful of fine cottonseed
meal into the bud, that shields the ten-
der bud, and adheres to the sand and as
the plant grows it pushes the cottonseed
meal, sand and all, out- The process
will need repeating when necessary.
The cottonseed meal is a good fertilizer
and ought to be put into all plants. If
the blossom is in sight, put it above the
leaves below the blossom.
Shell land is not suitable for I ineap-,
ples, hence most of the islands are unfav-
orable. The best land seems to be thd
pine woods or the main land as well as
the scrub lands. Both Iine and scrub
lands are largely composed of silica, just
what the plant wants. Ihave seen extra
fruit growing in rich hammocks that
contained silica in the soil. Let the land
bewell pulverized and surface drained
and fertilized two or three weeks before
planting. Hen manure, cow penuedaud
guano I look upon as the best. Cotton-
seed meal, acid phosphate, blood and
bone,etc.,areextra fertilizers. Ammonia
seems to be greatly needed, hencA avoid

each other and prevent the apple from
bending over, to get sunburnt. Planted
close, they require cultivating the first
year with a suitable hoe, only one-half
to an inch deep, for if the feeder roots
are cut off the plant will never fruit.
For the same reason it is best never to
transplant a pineapple. Plant the suck-
ers and slips where you want them to
stand. They will bear a great deal of
wet and also dry weather, and a vast
amount of fertilizers that would kill
other plants. Have your fertilizers well
mixed and walk-or wade- through the
patch two or three times a year, and sow
it broadcast like sowing oats.
I would select land as free from frost
as possible on the south side of a body
of water, and if possible that which is
underlaid with hard pan, clay or marl

Mr. Smith, who has been detailed by
the Agricultural Department for anum- "
ber of years to investigate the cause of
the so called "Yellows" in peach trees
and to advise a remedy has given
up in despair, after years of practical
work. That the disease is accompanied
by multitudes of bacterial forms is ev-
ident, but that any of these organisms
is the direct cause of the disease has not
been proved. No.remedy has yet been
found for a tree really attacked by the
yellows, and the axe and the fine saw
seem the only means ;of checking it.
But in all the peach growing districts
there are thousands of unhealthy, yel-
low looking trees that some have as-
sumed to have the disease. But their
condition is really due to the ravages of
the root aphis or to. the exhaustion of
the soil of elements needed for the suc-
cessful growth of the trees. Now in a'l
our coast country the great lack of the
old cultivated soils, and in fact of all
of our coast soils, is potash.
It is well known that all fruit trees
are large arers of potash and when by
their continued growth they have drawn
heavily unnu t.,ir,1ra an l t'
in these light suils, the trees suffer from
the lack. and the careless observer at
once says "Yellows," while really the
trouble is starvation. Now it is as)
well known that trees and plants of any
kind when in ihe weakened growth are
more readily attacked by insects. And
when ihe millions of root aphis begin to
feed upon the routs of the already
weakened tree and it gets yellow and
dies, the folks who cannot diagnose a
disease correctly, say it is a dead case
of "Yellows". Now while a liberal use
of p tash may not check a genuine case
of yellows, it is certain that heavy dress-
ings of Kainit or Muriate of Potash will
bring into thrifty growth thousands of
yellow, sickly trees that are only being
starved, and will put them in a condi-
tion to resist the insect attacks, or even
to resist the real disease. ; .

Charleston, S. C., and in New Orleans it
grows to a large size, ten to fifteenfeet
high, and as much in diameter. It is
graceful in habit and if left to itself its
lower limbs rest on the ground and its
form is almost a perfect globe..Its
leaves are dark, glossy green; the.small
flowers are .creamy white, the calyx is
brown. The flowers ake no show, but
they are intensely alid deliciously Ira-

yards is heavy with their perfume.
The plant grows well on high pine land
but needs some coaxing. "Many exotic
hard wood evergreen plants," writes-Mr.
E. H. Hart, of Federal Point, "are best
grown in half shade, with prepared soil,
until they become large and strong, be-
fore planting them in the open ground.
If the situation where they.are destined
to remain permanently besandy or dry,
a judicious mixture of clay and humus,
treated with some good fertllzes, and
dug into the soil just beyond, tt extrem-
ities of the roots ought to coax the plants
into growth. Exposed when small to
the vicissitudes of field culture, they are
often as likely to become stunted or go
into a decline as a sucking calf turned
out to grass..Here in the moist lat-
woods with a retentive subsoil, and more
or les humus on nd .near the surface,
both olea fragrans and magnolia fusoata
grow admirably. A plant of the latter,
twelve years old from the,pot, stands
twelve feet high, measures ten feet
through, and for six weeks in spring is
covered with thousands of miniature
magnolia blossoms whose deliciously
pungent odor is the very harmony of
perfume. One observer once remarked

An Invention Which Greatly Reduces the
Cost of Sulphate of ,Ammnont4a.
A recentissue of the Manufacturer's
Record contains the following, which, if
the statements made are true, will be
read with much interest by Florida
farmers and fruit growers.
"It is said that-T. B. Fogarty, of Pitta-
burg, Pa., has invented process of ex-
tracting nitrogen from air so economi-
cally that commercial use can be made
of it in compounds, especially ammonia.
An estimate claims that by thisprocess
sulphate of ammonia can 'be produced
at 622 per ton. The details of the pro-
cess are as follows:
S"Lima oil, or anyt-aher hydro-carbon,
is decomposed, and the resulting hydro-
carbon gases and vapors are introduced
into a retort or cupola working under a
heat of 2,200 degrees. This heat cracks
the hydro-carbons, first into lesser hydro-
carbons, and then into their elements,
carbon and hydrogen, eachin an active,
energetic or nascent condition, raady to
seize upon anything for whhih it has a
chemical affinity. At the same time air
is admitted, while lime, introduced at
the top of the cupola, isasifting down-
ward through the heated furnace, which
is kept at a high temperature. All the
necessary conditions nowbeing present,
chemical action takes place. The car-
bon and the nitrogen unite to form
cyanogen, which combines with the
alkali to form a cyanide, while the hy-
drogen passes off and may be collected,
carburetted and sold for illuminating
gas. The cyanide is then decomposed
by steam, and sulphate of ammonia is

the manufacture of ammonia by this

Some time ago a prominent geolo-
gist, on being approached on the sub-
ject, spoke of the possibilities of the
production of Georgia gold very high-
ly. "The gold in Georgia," said he, "is I
in a perfectly accessible region, which
makes it twice as valuable as gold
that might be taken out of California
or the Black Hills. A mine of enor-
mous richness is of little value if it
is inan impenetrable region. The gold

and it is necessary to transport the

nia it was freiucntl necessary to haul
it fifty or a hundred miles. The value
of gold is controlled to a great extent
by the cost of its production, and the
ore in north Georgia, being particular-
ly decomposed, is worked with great
f.cility. It looks as if nature had con-
spired to put the enormous amount of
gold in the hills of Oeorgia into the

Meam poffialatig thetind.
Gillet, a professional -meridicatrt of
raris, has the peculiar.merit of being
the organizer of a trick for raising
funds -which was unknown and' in-
dreamed of in the philosophy.of-the
ablest representatives of.the 9od Cour
des Miracles, says a writer in the
London Telegraph. He pretended to
hang himself from a tree seven times
during the summer, and on each occa-
sion he was cut down from his gibbet
by Good Samaritans, who invariably
sent round the hat for him on the spot.
In some instances the rescuers may
have been Gillet's confederates, but ac-
cording to what can be gathered he
usually preferred to work alone. Hav-
ing selected a fine day for his opera-
tions, Gillet dressed himself carefully
and went to the woods of Boulogne or
Vincennes. He next made choice of a
tree near where young children were
playing, and having put a noose round
his neck strung himself up. Then he
groaned and attracted the children;
who ran in alarm to their mothers or
nurses, until in a moment there was a
crowd around him. Men summoned to
the spot, and sometimes the women
who were called, extricated the artful
mendicant from his apparently peril-
ous position. He was extended on the
grass, his hands were rubbed, cordials
were pressed to his lips and smell-
ing bottles put under his nose.
When he revived the first question put
to him was naturally: Why did he
dlo it? Pointing to a pocket of his coat
he would say: "Here is a letter which
will explain all!" The document be-
ing opened contained a communication
to the effect that Gillet wanted to
hang himself of his own free will. His
desire to die was caused by destitution,
and he had not eaten for two days. A
collection being made for the sufferer
he instantly regained the use of his
limbs, and before leaving his generous
sympathizers treated them to a brief
autobiographical sketch, which set
forth that he was a respectable young
man from the country who had been
stranded in Paris and could find no
work to do. It is recorded that Gillet
performed this trick with great suc-
cess between July and September, not
only in the woods about Paris, but
also in the park at Versailles and in
the forest of St. Germain. In the last
mentioned place he had the good for-
tune to be cut down just as a generous
Paris banker was passing by, who gave
him a liberal donation. Gillet natur-
ally took care to tie his noose in a man-
ner calculated to produce the effect
which he intended without imperiling
his life. In the winter, when the
woods are comparatively deserted, Gil-
let adopted the old trick of pretending
to faint or to have an epileptic fit at
the corner of the street. His fraud
has at last been detected and charita-
ble people have been warned against
his knavery, which has not only de-
ceived ordinary men and women but
also astute members of the police force.

the shafts are sunk deep enough. It is

say a harsh thing to or about anyone,
says the Youth's Co,ipanion. His form
of speci'h1 was invariably mild. and ex-

him as almost as rerrohensible as lies.
Once, in the spring of the year, when
the Blueville roads were in a fearful
condition of mud and mire, the team
of a 'iruvclinr merchant" was stalled
a short distance from Mr. Jennings'
house, ~fho 14d ff at Qp 0ce brought

The team could not be inr.tantly re-

of high temper apd little aclf-control,
proceeded to vent his rage in languag.c
which first amazed and then dlis'-siuted
the equable Mr. Jennings. IIe bore it
aslongas he thought was necessary
and proper, gpd then unhitched his
oxen and went caimly hiome.

A Whialeman's Experiences.
The whale fishery has beer. prolific
in wonderful experiences since the
early settlers on Nantucket- turned
their attention to capturing the huge
cetaceans that formerly disported
themselves in the waters about that
sandy sea-girt isle. Whalemen have
always been the advance guards of
civilization, and have olten been the
first white men to meet the savages
of remote islands, or to force their
way into the inhospitable region-; of
the Artic or Antartic seas. Their
fierce encounters with fighting
whales, their experiences in ship-
wieek and the many other perils of
their hazardous vocction have'beeni
fruitful themes for writers. But it is
not often that an old whaleman con-
sentl to spin yarns to shoresmen, andl
consequently much of the romance
of the decaying industry of the whale
hunters remains unwritten. Recent-
ly, however, one who "has been
there," talked to a newspaper mian
of his adventures, and the following is
part of the interesting )arn he spun:
"Talk about your buckets of blood
and your gallons of gore of the
Spanish main," said Capt. Isaac B.
Tomplkis, "I had an adventure once
when whaling that beats 'emn all, so
far as blood is concerned. Why I
was literally bathed in it,."
Capt. Tompkins in his twenty
years of whaling has seen no end of
things worth seeing, and had paesset
through experiences that are certain-
ly worth relating. His life on board
whalers was between 1839 and 1859,
and of late years he has cruised in the
ship of state, going three voyages to
the general court and now being on
his fourth, so that his name is more
frequently written representative than
"I wus out in one of the ship's
boats trying to catch a sperm whale,"
said he, "and after I had thrown my
lance into lis head with line attach-.
ed, he began to -wim backwards,
drawing our boat after him. We
tried to catch up with him and get
aft of his head; but this was an inm-
possibility with four oars, so we Iove
our line overboard and then it took
the harpooner's oar and with the five
of them we gained on him and got

with his jaw open bore down upon us.
"He was coming with great speed
and although I was afraid lie would
hit our boat was mighty anxious to
catch him. I fold the ceew to go up
into the stern, while I remained in th_
bow with a lance to strike him as he
You see when a sperm whale lies
on his side, as this one did, there is
a little hollow, perhaps you'd call it
a large onu', between his eye and his
fin, and a lance thrown in there will
penetrate clear through to the heart,
which is otherwis- e protected on near-
ly all sides.
I kept my' eye o that weak spot

terrible force, and ,h was near-well,
as near as from here to tiat door-1
threw my lance and let him have it
as hard as 1 could.
The lance hit the mark and
plunged through into the heart. He
close Iis jaw with an -awful snap,
sank his tail down into the water,
and brought his head up against the
gunwale of our boat; then he began
to slide off into the sea, and I stood
there looking to see what would hap-
I had meant to scramble np in the
stern as soan as I threw the lance,
but it all happened so quickly that I
forgot myself. ,
You know a sperm whale spouts
every time ie breaths; after I stuck
this one's heart, he breathed just
once, and by the time he got ready
to spout his head had just slipped
off our gunwale tir enough so that
the spout hole was about opposite to
where I was.
I got the full force of the charge,
and, ngh! it was part salt water and
part the monster's life blood. It
struck me square in the face and
knocked me over in the botton of the
boat insensible. When I came to, a
Kanaka was washing the blood from
niy face saying, 'he no hurt nobody
no more, he dead now,' referring to
There must have been a barrel-
ful of blood thrown over me; it spoil-
ed all the clothing I had on, but
then," added the captain, his face
brightening, "that whale made one
hundred barrels of oil, and that
was a petty good average catch
from one whale in those days.
WXhen I was master of the ship
Twilight, f this port," the captain
went on, "we met the ship John and
Edward in a sad plight. They had
struck a whale which had stove three
boats and '"as master of the field,

in the center. I fired my bomibgun
into the big chords a baft of his lhunp,
which straightened him out, so that
wheon his head came up it was easy
to kill him with aoplance."
S"Did you- ever see a mutiny on the
high seas?" one of the company was
suddenly inspired to ask.
"Yes. I was aboard two ships with
mutinous crews,"- lhe replied, "and
the first case especially attracted a
great deal of interest in New Bedford
at the time.
It was in 1840. I was then
about fourteen and had shipped as

"Yes, to drink as much as he did.
Lots of captains and officers might
take a glass now and then, but they
didn't keep drunk all the time, as
that man did.

But lie tla% a good crew and when

1,000 miles apart.
They didn't know what 1 was up
to until after a pilot and hiscrew
came aboard- to take us into port, and
when they learned that they were to
land at Freemantle, their rage knew
no bounds. They stoutly refused to
bring the ship to an anchor.
At this the pilot-he was a sturdy
little Englishman and a fight(-r--
drew his pistol and making an ad-
dress to my mutinous men, said he'd
blow out the brains of the first one
who refused duty. We soon landed
and I had them all arrested and im-
prisoned; but the cases were not
prosecuted. I recruited my ship up

The genial captain is a native of
Westport, where he was born Aug.
37. 1827. His whaling service may
be thus summarized:
Cabin boy in the Copia 1839-40
steeragei boy, fornmast hand, third
mate and master, all in different voy-
ages, in the Young Phenix 1840 to
1843, and master of the ship Twi-
light, July '54 to March '58. He
made in all five voyages from this
month. Tlhe men were disgusted
with the cruel treatment tlhey bad
received from the captain,and the 1etr-
il in which they believed thly were,
by iisd drunkenness con tinually
1 remember the day very well.
They came and delivered to captain
a paper, signed by all of them, iin
which tlrey stated that they had deci-
ded because of the. continual turmoil
and bickering on board ship to di no
more whaling. They were willing to
work t e vessel back to port, but
catch whale they would not. They
asked him to set sail for the nearest
The paper was signed by the men
in a circle, so nobody signed first,
and foi that reason it was difficult to
learn who the leader was.
For a while it was feared that the
captain would grab some weapon and
refuse to accede to their demands;
but there was no outbreak. The cap-
tain consulted with the mates and
immediately squared away fAr the
nearest port, St. Helena.
The mutineers numbered twenty-
five in all, including the foremast
hands and the boat steerers, all but
one. They evidently felt that while
mutinv was a high crime when a
ship or hunian life was put" in peril
they night receive little, or no pun-
ishment if they behaved themselves
for the rest of the voyage.
We lay at St. Helena about forty
days. The consul there held an in-
vestigation on board the ship. He

both sides of the story, but never

and too full of mischief he thought
to kniow Vluch about mutinies.
The consul decided to send the
mutineers home to America for trial.
Two Sag Harbor ships which had
put into St. Helena .during the
hearing, wer- ordered to take twenty-
one of them to this country. While
they went in custody, they were not
put in irons but were taken in charge
by a United States marshal on ar-
rival at New York harboP. The
uen were discharged after a hearing
in tlie New York court.
The other four mutineers, Benja-
milln Butler, an uncle of Pres. Butler
of the state senate; Elihu Grant, af-

out by his family and friends and the
other three through the influence of

larly enough, in jail himself for debt.
In September their cases were
brought to trial in Boston. It needed
only a brief statement of the evidence
against them for the judge to dis-
charge then all without a hearing.

THE SMITH RUBBER
The demand for a practical machine induced us in 1881, to turn
from the old style of stump pullers and we made and put the first practice I
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 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 equal strength, making a stronger, more powerful, lighter,
handier, cheaper,. faster working ana a more durable machine than
otherwise could be made, and to counteaact the extreme prejudice against
the name stump pullers; the new machine was called the Smith Grubber.

Te ST ANDREWS BAY
Horticultural a B Ilproveet
ORGANIZED 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 be a
Source of 'Revenue to its Owner.
As TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION.
SThe first question wh;ch will n aturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answeg*4 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 whQn the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
SThe Association will not only improve and plant, biit watch, and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping, guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
or damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay county a few figures are given:
Price of lana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say ".;'.', 'ost of planting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year ti i. -- fi, r$2 0
It. is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit, and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persinmmons almnonds English
wAlnuts, Japtai. chestnuts, pecans, and m.any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yield large returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
swering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.
R E E M B E R the Association Lands will bo sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. CORRESPONDENCE SOLIC-TED.

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

Notice to Inventors.
There was never a time in the his-
tory-of onr country when the demand
for inventions and improvements in
the arts and sciences 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
accessions to :he appurtenances and
implements of each in order to save
labor, time and expense. The poli-
tical change in the administration of
government does not affect the pro-
gress of the American inventor, who
being on the ale-t, and ready to per-
ceive the existing deficiencies, does
not permit the affairs of government
to deter him from quickly conceiving
the remedy to overcome existing dis-
crepansies. Too great care cannot
be exercised in choosing a competent
and skillful attorney to prepare and
prosecute any application for a pat-
ent. Valuable interests have been
lost and destroyed in innumerable in-
stances by the 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
do so at imm inent risk, as the breadt
and strength ot the patent is never
considered in view of a quick en-
deavor to get an allowance and ob-
taintihe fees then due. THE PRESS
CLAIMS COMPANY, John Wed-
derburu, General Manager, 618 F

representing a large number of im-
portant daily and weekly papers, as
well as general periodicals of the

patrons from the unsafe methods
heretofore employed in this line of
business. The said Company is pre-
pared to take charge of all patent
liusini.,: entrusted to it for reason-
able fees, and prepares and prosecutes

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
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
Pensacola the comfortable schooners
Jessie P. and Nettie make regular
trips, every possible attention is giv-
en to tihe comfort of passengers, and
with favorable winds the trip from
Pensacola is made in from twelve to
eighteen hours; or, take the P. & As
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 trip ismade in one day,
and the prices charged will be as re4s
enable 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., cver the Ala. Midland
railroad, thence to Wewahitchka by
:;teamboat 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 Ie found to convey you
sixteen miles to Wetappo, or you
may take passage with the mail car-
rierat Wewahitchka for Farmdale,
at quite reasonable rates; here con-
nection may be made with the East
Bay mail sailboats, making daily
trips -p and down the Bay; and
the passage fiom 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 tbh world at small cost; this
route may also be taken advantage of
by taking the P.. & A. to River Junc-
tion, thence to Gordon, W\ wahitchka
aend\ Wct ypo. If the Weowahitchka
route be taken, dates may be fixed
ahead ivitii parties there for hack
to be in readiness at any time.

The British Army.
The physique of the British army
may not perhaps be all that it ought
to be, but so far as nunibeis are con-
crrned their military forces are in a
very satisfactory condition. In case
of need they could put into the field
for service at home a force of 332,-
000 men, exclusive of.the militia re.-
serve. They have 94.000 militia,
10,000 yeomanry, and nearly 2.000
volunteers. 'The regular army nutn-
bets close upon 220,000 of all ranks
and these could, on emergency, b'
supplemented by 80,000 reserve men
and 30,000 militia reservists, making,
in all a total of 330,000 men f,,r ser-
vice abroad. They have thus a
grand total of 662,000 men available
for service at hone and abroad. At
no time was there so large a force of
enrolled men to be called upon for.
service should the occasion arise.
When James I, was on his way
from Scotland to London to take
possession of tile crown, as successor
to Queen Elizabeth, he spent two
days at York-a Saturday and Sun-
day. On the latter day the preacher
was the Rev. Dr. Mountain one of the
canons of the minster; and in presence
of the King and Royal Family he
gave out the text, "If thou hadst
faith #s a grain of mustard seed,
thou wouldst say unto tlhi Mountain,
be thou removed and be thou cast
into that See, and it shall be done."
The King was so pleased at the
first attempt at pulpit wit lie had
ever heard-for none was ever in-
dulged in; in sombre eScotland-that
he exclaimed, in his broad vernacu-
lar, "Oddsfish, man, but lie shall get
it;" and letters patent were made out
forthwith for Dr. Mountain's prefer-
ment to the Archbishopric of York.

A Good Gooseberry.
A good gooseberry is worth talking
about. It is a delicious fruit both when
yet green and to eat out of hand when
ripe. It deserves far greater attention
than it is now receiving. A novelty in
way of gooseberries this season is the
Chautauqua, of which S. A. Beach, hor-
ticulturist of the Geneva station, says in
his report: "The Chautauqua gooseber-
ry has been fruited here for several
years. During this time it has been vig-
orous and productive. The fruit is large,
smooth, pale yellow, very good and
sweet. Like others of its class, it some-
times mildews, but to those who take
the trouble to spray we can recommend
the Chautauqua as one of the best varie-
ties yet tested on our grounds."
Mr. Roesch, who introduced this va-
riety, advises in American Gardening
the planting of the Chautauqua in the
partial shade afforded by young orchards.
This advice is safe to follow in planting
all gooseberries. The north side of a
building or a garden wall is also a good
spot to plant this fruit.

Drawbacks to Beauty.
Beauty can rarely satisfy the hopes it
has raised. One of the ancients called it
"a short lived tyranny," another "a si-
lent fraud," and when we remember the
temptations to which it subjects its pos-
sessorS, as well as the failure-to which it
often leads, the pleasure' that seems to
attend it and the blight that again and
again succeeds, it may not unreasonably
be argued that, notwithstanding the pre-
disposition of mankind in favor of per-
sonal beauty, the quality has been over-
rated, and it is not a gift whiLch the moth-
er may wisely 'i --ire for her child.
The grea-t dli.lqu.hi'..i:-l. of beauty is
that it does not usually accompany
bri.-' r,- s of intellect, a .:tire to please
and the personal qualitn- thut have a
lasting charm. We are aw. are that that
ia a l.1..1 and sweeping assertion, and we
admit :tht. it iru.t make way fur numer-
ous exceptions, but it is uplield as a gen-
eral statement by many ibsi.rvers. In
the days of The Spectator, when it was
the fashion to notice andwrite about
character and disposition more freely.
than now, Addison, Steele and the rest,
gallant gentlemen as they were, were
compelled to acknowledge again and
again that "the beauty" was vastly over-
rated in a woman.
"The professed beauty is almost as in-
sufferable as the professed wit." I have
observed a certain cheerfulness in as bad
a system of features as was ever clapped
together which hath appeared more love-
ly than all the blooming charms of inso-
lent beauty." That is the tone of the
comments of these old observers.--Fami-
