Itf we Knew.
There are gem. of wondrous brightness
Oft times lying at our feet,
And we pass them, walking thoughtless
Down the busy crowded street;
If re kAew, o*% pace would slaken-
We would step more oft with care,
Lost our careless feet be treading
To the earth some jewel rare.
[f we knew ilht hearts are aching
For the cou'.ifrt w might bring;
If we knew what souls are yearning
For the isunsine we could ling;
It we knew ahat feet are weary
Walking Pathwtao s roughly laid;
We would quickly hasten forward,
Stretising forth our hands to aid.
If we knew what friends around us
Feel a want they never tell---
That some word we've lightly spoken
Pained or wounded where it fell;
We would speak in accents tender
To each friend we chanced to meet;
We would give to each one freely,
Smiles of sympathy so sweet.

Some fifteen or twenty days since,

which the negro race should be
transported to Liberia for the small
sum ot $1. This amortnt paid into
the hands of a committee whom they
w ou l select, woulH give each a pas-
sage to their native land. Gordon
would make appointments in tlhe
more densely populated negro dis-
tricts, and preach to then, asking at
the close of the services contribuitis,
as lie was to have none of the amount
paid to the committee for transporta-
tion purposes. He realized consid-

The argument fiomii Mr. Wilson's
experience is that cotton can be
grown--at least, where he lives--
and sold at a profit, -it a price -far
less-than 5 cents; pr-' pound.
If the f'sets are as represented,
the cotton growers of the South need
loose no- sleep from fear. ".They
should avoid bo:-'owing money to
make cotton with, grow all of tlhe
crops that they possibly can for sub-
sistence, and make their cotton a
strictly surplus money produciL.
Then there will be no possibility of.
loss on it, even if the price sliall go
below 5 cents.
1'rofit in Waltut Planting.
A Tennessee newspaper,'the Milan
Hustler, tells how one 'Thomas L.
Walker, seventy-five years ago.
planted four walnuts on his father's
farm near Cedar Bluff, ten miles
,from Knoxville. Walker died ten
years ago, but had lived to see four
walnut trees grow to a measure of
four feet in diamfieter, worth' f cut
and seasoned, at least $400 each
Thereupon the Hustler argues that
had hie planted 300 walnuts on an
adjoining acre of ground, his hei rs
when lie died, would have been
$120,000 better off. To-day they
would have been $200,000 better off,
Had he planted ten acres. they
would be worth at least $2,000,000.
Had he planted 100 acres, and all
the treas reached an average size of'
three feet in diameter, tmid there is
no reason why they shouldn't, as
the land is fertile and impregnated
with lime, his heirs. and there are
only three living, would be worth
altogether $200,000,000. If he had
planted all the workout fields in
Tennessee in walnuts, it would be
the richest statp in the Union by far.

Saturday, ea'4y, the crowd began to
congregate. The old and young, the
strongg ai d deciepid-all with bag-

It is reported he arose in the great

SoaN(-By 1arry MI. Evans.
Written for the Buor.
There's a story so sad,
I'm about to rate,
Of a ship that has left here
And gone to her fate;
Of the fatherless children
And mothers who wait,
For news of their loved ones,
And their hard, cruel fate.
Oh, your hearts turn toward them
In pity I know,
When the surf be its loud
And the stormy winds blow;
Let their friend look toward
Where their spirits today
Look down on their sad homes
On the shores of East Bay.
'Twas the year ninety-four
On an October day,
They sailed from their homes
On the shores o: East Bay.
N' t a thought of their fate,
When a "Good bye" they'd say
As they each kissed some dear one
And then sailed from the hay.
Re, ilain i-
t.ou i-arlede'nd lbrd.
And nothing they dread
Like the cries of their children
For clothing and bread
But these kind-hearted men
Will go out never more
In struggle to drive
The grim wolf from the door.
But the saddest of all
Is the tale I now tell;
How the storm swept Sand Island
With the fury of hell. -
How the wild raging sea
Claimed-as victims that day,
The sixteen poor boys
From the shores of East Bay..
God -pity those .iomes
That in sadness are left-
Of a brother, a father,
Or a husband bereft;
Many a vacant chair, friends,
You can see there today,
In the heart-brokei homes
On the shores of East B-'y.
Oh, that mother who 's left
Without husband or sons
To cheer her at eveninmei
When the day's work is done;
As the days quickly pass
And the years roll away,

The blue waves glitter, Eme sunlight
crisped by thesoft light breezes into
rippling life, dashing on to the beach
full of vigor. Nowhere can invalids
find more quiet and restful quarters.
Nowhere can tourists find more genial
surroundings than in this home fitted
purposely with a view to the pleasures
and entertainment of its guests.
St. Andrews is three parts an island;
for the waters of the Bay curl round it
lovingly, backed by wooded slopes that
keep off the north and east winds--a
hidden balmy place; towering oaks
hang with moss and jessamine stand
like noble sentinels, and when filled
with the ring of song birds, make it a
spot of nature, calm and holy. The
-gulf breezes are enjoyed at all times
making it a lovely summer resort.
Shells of many varieties can be gath-
ered on the gulf beach. Sailing and
boating on the clear waters are al-
ways safe. Fish of all kinds and oysters
in abundance form a cuisine not to be
surpassed; while game is in plenty and
will attract epicures. Those who try
one season in this lovely spot, as a rest-
ing place or. as a -health restorative,
will never forget its many advantages.
The proprietor, Mr. Bondurant, from
Atlanta. Ga., will associate with him-
self a New York lady who thoroughly
understands the needs of lady patrons,
socially and otherwise. Mr. Bondurant
will run a line of hacks to Chipley, for
the comfort of his guests, thus entirely
overcoming the long delays in Pensa-
cola and Mobile, as well as the discom-
forts of the gulf passage.

DON'T STOP TOBACCO.
How to Cure Yourself While
The tobacco habit grows on a man
until his nervous system is seriously af-
fected, impairing health, comfort and
happiness. To quit suddenly is too se-
vere a shock to the system, as tobacco,
to an inveterate user becomes a stimu-
lant that his system continually craves.
Baco-Curo is a scientific cure for the to-
bacco habit, in all its forms, carefully
compounded after the formula of an
eminent Berlin Physician who had used
it in his private practice since 1872,
without a failure, purely vegetable and
guaranteed perfectly harmless. You
can use all the tobacco you want, while
taking Baco-Curo, it will nofify you
when to stop. We give a written guar-
anted to permanently cure any case
with three boxes, or refund the money
with 10 per cent. interest. Baco-Curo
is not a substitute, but a scientific cure,
that cures without the aid of will power
and with no inconvenience. It leaves
the'system as pure and free from nico--
tine as the day you took your first chew
or smoke, Sold by all druggists, with
our ironclad guarantee, at $1.00 per
box, three boxes, (thi-rty days treat-
ment,) $2.50, or sent direct upon'receipt
of price. SEND SIX TWO-CENT

he Recovery from tihe ESffects
of the Black Friddiy in ie-
cenmber Encounters a set
Back on the Black F'ri-
day in February.
On last Thursday mo1ninig the air
vwas warm and springlike with the
mercury marking 58 and pIeople
weie tempted to leave their coats
when repairing to their places of
business; but very soon a marked
change. was noted; the wind went to
the northwest and before 9 o'clock
che conviction forced itself upon usn
that a cold wave from the direction
of thle north pole was making its wv.
to the "land of flowers" with re-
mar able rapidity. .hec mercury
commenced falling rapidly and frolml
7 a. imi. to 6 p. m. it had gmie down,
lully thirty degrees-the record be-
ing taken, from tile BuoY's large
tleinmometer, located in a shed om
outroom oi the east side of thle Buor
office. After 6 p. m. no record was
taken until 7 a. In. next morning,
at which time it rested at the 14
degree mark; a self-registering thel-
momietel marked 12 5-10 degrees
some time during the night, and
that is probably, as rear a correct
marking as would have been taken
had the signal service kept station
What the effect of this freeze will
be upon fruit trees and vegitatiion
it is impossible now to tell. A few
buds had swelled a trifle after the
previous freeze, but as a rule, no
sign of ascending sap had malnfested
itself. The less hardy citrus trees
are very likely killed to tile ground,
while pears, peaches, plums, grapes
and diciduous trees and plants are
more than likely benefited, for cer-
tain'y imyriads of insects must ihav\
lost their lives and will not be pres-
ent to work destruction to the fruit
when it shall form in its season, andI
the disheartened orange and lemon
grower can only hope that we may-
escape 1'rosts in Marchl and April,
vhich has not been our good fortun-,
for the past four years, at least.
There is a wide difference of
olin iiin as to wl'iethler this freeze
beats all previous record ill thii,
locality. TIle natives who were
born and raised here, say that it is
11n worse than a free fifteen yeal.-
ago, but as there were Ino ilnst.Illmelill
here to record tile tellilpratu'e al
that tinme, we must take tle'ir* Wordl
for it, anld knowing that they s'lr--
vived and saw St. Andrews Bay re.-
deemi itself at that time-harbor 1no
thought but tlat tile springtinle wiili
bring us a return of the conditions
of which we have been wont to.
There is also this consolation, that
while ice made ill exposed places.
to the thickness of several inches,
the cold wave was unacctnipanuied by
thlie snow and sleet, which made li.c
precarious in tile Inore northern
portions of the country, and there
are even reports of loss. of life inll
many localities, while tie most weC
can complain is tliat it was too coldi
to be pleasant or agreeable, and our
houses, as a rule, not beinig built
witl any great preeatution to fence
out Jack Frost, lie cavorted around

LiU thie freeze in December, th -
mlarkings of thermometers on St.
Anidrews Bay veryincarly correspond
with that reported along thie whole
line from Pensacola to Jacksonville.
varying only as the reports are fronll
points north or south of thie line be-
tween those two points.
Let us hope for no more "Black
Friday" thii season.

Dear Sirs-I have been a tobacco fiend for many years, and during thopast
two years have smoked fifteen to twenty cigars regularly every day. My whole
nervous system became affected, until my physician told me I must give up the
use of tobacco for the time being, at least. I tried the so-called "Keenley
Cure," "No-To-Bac," and various other remedies, but without success, until I
accidently learned of your "Beco-Curo." Three weeks ago to-day I commenced
using your preparation, and to-dcy I consider myself completely cured; I am in
perfect health, and the horrible craving for tobacco, which every inveterate
smoker fully appreciates, has completely left me- I consider your "Baco-Curo"
simply wonderful, and can fully recommend it; Yours verytruly,

ORGANIZED JANUARY. 9, 1892.
Thie ujecl 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 tractsof 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 enbance 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.
The first question which will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
.. nation 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 nian 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 shiw that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
VTh. Association will not only iniprove and plant, but 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.
Froti a careful estimate of the probable expense 'and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price:of;ana pel acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; -ost of planting 1st
year, vy $30; coat of cultiviition each year thereafter, $'20
1 It il ot 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 coingit into profitable tearing nmay he named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persinmmons almonds English
walnuts, Japai. chestnuts, pecans, and manyv other v~lrieties 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 BIoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer ami que.tions*asked it.
R E M E M B E R, the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. C ORRE 9PO ND ENCE S OLI IT ED.

Equal wthh the interest of those having claims against the government is
that of INVENTORS, ho often los e L benefit of valuable inventions because

PRIZES ON PATENTS,
Howm to Got ;- ;. .:i.d Perhaps
M:1.kc a. Fortune.
WTe secure patents and to induce
people to keep tiack of their bright
ideas we offer a prize of one hundred
dollars to, be paid on tlie first of ev-
ery month to tile person or persons

rious invention duriiig the proceeding

yention freo of elia rge in thie National
Recorder, a.weekly newspaper pub-
lished in Washington, D. C., woichl
has an extensive circulation through-
out the United States, and is devoted
to the interests of inventors.
NO"' HO HARD AS IT SEEMS.
'The idea of being able to invent
something strikes most people as be-
ing very difficult; this delusion tihe
company wishes to dispel-. It is the,
simple things, and small inventions
that make the greatest amount of
money, and the complex ones are
seldom" profitable. Almost every-
body at some time or another con-
ceives an idea, which, if patented.
would probably be worth to him a
fortune. Unfortunately, such ideas
are usually dismissed without a
thought. Thie simple inventions
like the car window which could
easily be slid up and down without
breaking tile passenger's back, the
sauce pan, the collar button, the anui
lock, tile" bottle stopper, the sno'.
shovel, are things that almost every
one sees some way of improving ui,
on, and it is these kind of invention,
hJat bring the greatest returns t(
The prize we offer will be paid ai
the end of each month, whether tin
application ias been acted upon by
the Patent office or not. Every in-
ventor must apply for a patent on
his invention through ius, and lwheth-
or he secures a patent or not, lie iln-
ventor will have a. valuable potent.

Y1.ro I'Oxodus into Mexico
A party of 300 negroes arrived
aer t.he' Queen and Crescent re-
cently. The came in a special train
that left Birmingham last night.
These negroes are the first of a large
party of perhaps 10.000 who will pass
through the city during the next
few months enroute to Mexico. The
Mexican Colonization Company hav-
ing headquarters in Mexico, have se-
cured large concessions of the Mexi-
can Goverment on the Mapino River,
and these negroes'are being import-
ed to raise coffee. Peg William,
the agent of the company in this
country, says the negroes are all anx-
io us to see hleir new homes; that
the low price ,f cotton has resulted
in correspondingly decreased wages,
creating dissatisfaction among them.
Verdict for a Colored IMann
Against L. N., Under SeDer-
ate Coach Law.
A special to the Courier-Journal
from Owensboro, Ky., says: Under
preemptory instructions from Juge
Barr, the jury in the Federal Court
found a verdict for 1 cent and costs
against the Louisville and Nashville
Railroad Company in the separate
coach case. -
The suit was brought by the Rev.
W. 11. Ainderson, crilored, of Evans-
ville,for $15,000,but was really to test
the Seperate Coach law of Kentucky.
Judge Barr decided last summer
that the law was unconstitutional, be-
cause it affected inlter-state commerce.
The railroad company then contend-
'i that it had a rule jrquiring sepa-
ration of white and colored passengers
a ide from this law, and asserted
that the rule was a reasonable oiie,
Upon tais, the issue was joined
and the verdict rendered, Judge
Barr's instructions left tlle jury oul
to determine the&amount of damages.
The jury first. disagreed, nine stand-
ing for one cent, one for $1,5)00, one
for $1,000, and oile for $300.
Ininediatly upon filing of the ver-
die:, the attorneys for the railroad
companies gave notice of all appeal
to the supreme court of the United
States. A writ of etr,.r will be pre-
pared at once on the Juge's instruc-
tions, and ai!ls on tile ntiing declar-
ing tle Itenituickv law naiconstitn t-ion-

City Without a Goverinient.
The town of Huliuibolit, Kai., is an
organized city of the ltheth clai ,
with 1,500 people, and for eig teen
years there has not been a municipal
officer iin the town, although the
city election, has been held every
year. Thereby hangs a tale, told by
the Memphis Commercial-Appeal.
An. as it contains a warning against
the voting of bonds and going into
debt, it should be told. In the spring
of 1870 there was projected south
from Junction City to Parsons a
railroad called the southern branch
of the Union Pacific. Humboldt,
was not a young town then, hat bond
voting was the fashion, and Humbolt,
which was old enough to know bet-
ter, voted bonds to the extent of
$175,000 for the road. Not satis-
fied with this debt, in 1876 the town
votd(l $25,000 to the Fort Scott,
Humboldt and Western, a road
known in the w.st as the "Old Fifth
Parallel.," This road was graded
from Fort Scott to Humbolt, but it
was never Pquippe i. The grade may
be seen to-day by passengers riding
along the Missi uri Pacific. But tlhe
grade did not brimg the flood ol trade
that was expected, and the bonds
being sold to the usual "innocent
purclhaser," the town began to
shirlish around the courts to keep
froinl paying-an unjust debt. The
inevitable came, and in 1876 the
town as a legal corporation dissolved
into thin air. When the officer of
the court cane to Humboldt in 1876
to compel the mayor to turn over the
interest due on the bonds, he found
that, although there had been a red-
hot election the spring before, and
although there was a man there cal-
led mayor, there was in deed and in
legal truth no mayor at all. The
situation has remained the amne for
eighteen years. In two years more
the d(bt will be outlawed. Then
llninboldt is coming up to breathe
the free air once more as a municipal
corporation. At present the pro-
granmme is written upon a "tangled
web." Every year the mayor and
city council are elected. The old
adininistration comes in-only it
doesn't. It copies to the threshho d,
but it doesn't emlter. It does not
