Believe in the use of a currency witl
a stable and unshifting value.
The Banner and other free silver
papers of its kind have from time t
time wasted a great deal of rhetoric
on thi act of 1873, and have greatly]
overrated its importance. A lay
which merely recognized existing
conditions cannot be compared witl
the law which had for its objec: t
establish those conditions; and thii
states the relative force of the act o
1853 and that of 1873.
The act of February 12, 1873 ii
displayed before the people as s
deceitful and dreadful crime in legis
lation Important consequence *
have been attached to it, antd it has
even been absurdly ch..rged that thu
law was the cauie of the commer-
cial cris is of September 1873. As ii
a law which made no changes in the
actual metallic standard in use, and
which had been in nuse thus more
than twenty years, had produced a
financial disaster in. seven months.
To any one who knows of the in-
fluence of credit and speculation, or
who has followed the course offoriegn
trade since the Civil War, such a
theory is too absurd to receive more
than passing mention. Up to the
year 1873 there had been coined of
412j grain dollars for the purpose of
circulation only $1,43 ,457, and
these were coined before 1806.
But while the act of 1873 had lit-
tle effect in changing existing con-
ditions. it had an influence of a kind
which at the present time can
scarcely be over estimated. It was
then close to the year 1876, in which
occurred the phenomenal fall in the
price of silver. Had the demone-
tization of the silver dollar been ac-
complished in 1873 and 1874, we
would have found ourselves in 1876
with a single silver standard, an the
resumption of specle payments on
January 1, 1879, would have been in.

cent of all our contracts and existing
obligations would have been re-
With a proper view, the demo-
cratic party should look upon. the
act of 1873 as a piece of good fortune,
which saved our financial credit a .
protected the honor of the state. It
was a work of legislationn for which
we can not now be too thankful.

Convincing possible argument in be-

published without discrimination as

f in the south is invited by the South-
ern States to send to it a letter giv-
ing his experiences in the south and
his opinion of the section in which
he has m*,ved. This is an oppor-
tunity which every northern citizen
in our community should utilize and
which every native citizen should
exert himself to see utilized. Not
only farmers, buit merchants, lawyers,
banker and those of all trades and
pro sessions and callings who have
moved to the south h are offered the
privilege of telling to their northern
friends, through the Southern States
magazine what advantages, at-
tractions and opportunities there are
in the south.
The Southern States is doing an
immense amount of good for the
south. Its purpose as announced in
the standing article at the head of
its editorial page, is "to set forth ac-
curat3ly and conse.vatively from
month to month the reasons why the
south is for the farmer, the settler,
the homeseeker, the investor, in-
comparably the most attractive sec-

nounced, although the carriage was still
too far away for its occupants to be rec-

Wyoming, so far as I know." His
smile was slightly sardonic. Of this,
however, Miss Ellery was unconscious,
being wholly absorbed in looking ahead.
This tPrnout of Ellery's, a handsome
victoria drawn by four spirited horses,
so incongruous in its splendor against
the grim background of bare plains,
was generally regarded as a fit subject
for good humored smiles among his un-
"I am so glad that you will be spared
the rest of the long drive," Miss Ellery
remarked, with a slight accession of
dignity, as if with the approach of her
friends she had remembered afresh who
she was and to what sphere of life it
had pleased heaven to call her.
"Are you?" he dryly returned.
"Well, perhaps you will excuse me if I
say that I am not, but"-
"You are very kind," she hastily in-
terrupted, "but I am sure that I have
given you trouble enough. Ah, it is"-in
an ecstatic tone, excitedly fluttering a
handkerchief, radiantly pretty in her
delight,-"it is Nelsino and Hugh and
the children !"
In a moment more the sisters-in-law
were clasped in tumultuous embrace,
pouring out incoherent exclamations of
joy between even more confused efforts
at mutual explanation. Hunih Ellery, a
broad shouldered, blond whiskered, sun-
burned and handsome fellow of 80,
whose own greeting had been cut short
by the irrnprfer.ible entlhnsiafm of his
wife. sat smiling sympathetically at
their rpture, while Brown waited rath-

"Oh, thebaggage" exclaimed
lery, comprehending the dilemma.
"There is a team a little behind, oom-
ing for that, so just throw the small
traps in there and drive on a bit with
the rest, won't you, like a good fellow?"
"To think of our not getting your
telegram until last night" cried Mrs.
Ellery between two kisses. She was a
tall, strikingly graceful woman of the
brunette type, sparkling with life, her
black eyes bashing with a sort of mag-
netic fire that held all glances captive.
One quickly understood, watching her
pretty, humming bird sort of restless-
ness, how it was that her husband's
eyes were always turning toward her
with a kind of doglike devotion in their
ray depths. "We had happened to be
invited out to tea at a neighbor's, ten
miles away, and it was 10 o'clock when
we reached home. Ah, I was perfectly
frantic when we found your telegram
there waiting for u. I wanted to start
right off, but it was so dark and Hugh
was persuaded that you would know
how to take care of yourself perfectly
well. He says you always do."
"He is very kind, but I might have
found it rather difficult last night but
for Mr. Brown," Edith hastily interpo-
lated, with a smile of sweet friendli-
sees at the young man. Now that all
her anxieties were at an end she was in
i radiant good humor. "If he had not
happened to be at the station"-
"And so you went on to Cameron's

young man with that radiant smile
which, to most men, had been a reward

The wagon from the ranch had just
ome up, and Paul Brown, with the
river of the team, was engaged in
transferring Miss Ellery's trunk from
he back of the buokboard. The work
kept him silent for a moment, but he
etrned around with a gay, infectious
laush which showed all his firm, white
teeth. "Hospitality, like virtue, is its
own reward sometimes, Mrs. Ellery,"
he said. "Angels' visits are few and far
between at Cameron'. When thq do

"And how soon ae you going to be
through down there?" asked Elery, do-
ainla him as he moved tomo. "We
have quite a bunch of colts that ought
to be broken, and I was wanting to se
you, to ask when you could come over."
"Why, as to that, I ought to be get-

"I'm about through there now,

you can give us no longer and then

lery rather anxiously.
Well, perhaps if that will do," he
hesitantly agreed, with a half glance at
the back seat of the carriage as he
turned back toward his own team. "I
have my own horse at Oameron's and
will ride over in the course of a week or
o if I can arrange it to come. Other-
wise I will drop you a line."
The Indis were paying no heed to
anything besides their own absorbing
conversation, but aroused byseeing him
moving to go Edith started forward
impulsively. "Oh, Mr. Brown, are you
going? You must let me thank yoo
again," peremptorily holding out a
small, gloved hand. The man had been
really kind, and now that she might
never lay eyes on him again, for she had
not heard a word of the arrangement
her brother had been making she felt
that she could well afford to be gracious.

"Except perhaps when he happens to

"But he was so very kind, you know,
and I could not pay him"--
"He probably considers himself mu-

"There is something almost suspi-
oiously refined about that young man'
manner," observed Mrs. Ellery reflect-
ively. "It seems as if he must have a
history, as if he might be hiding in this
out of the world place for some reason."
"Ah, Nelsine, your imagination, it
devoted to sensational literature, would
make your fortune," observed her hus-
band indulgently. "As for poor Brown,
though, give the devil his due and stick

Death of Editor 'cott.
The journalistic world, probably
received one of the most severe blows
it has suffered for a number of years,
by the recent death of James W.
Scott, editor and proprietor of the
Chicago Times-Herald. Mr. Scott
followed journalism for a lifetime, was
the son of an editor and served a
number of years as a practical
printer. The Herald, but more re-
cently the Times-Herald has been
conducted all along its life in a very
steady and prosperous manner; and
now ;anks ahead in the way of demo-
cratic journals, through the personal
efforts of its manager,, who had
built it up from a low starting.

Correspondence of the Buor.
The fishing crew, under the com-
mand of Capt W. E. Spiva, came in
Sunday, April 14, with some very
nice fish. They left again for
the camp last Saturday afternoon.
Those interested in educational
affairs in this vicinity met at L. M.
Ware & Co's Bay Head store, last
Friday night at 7 o'clock. There
were about a dozen in attendance
all anxious to get a school started
somewhere in the community. So
something had to move. The meet-
ing came to order and upon inquiry
it was found that there were enough
children in the neighborhood to sus-
tain a school. It was decided, pro-
vided the school is secured, to use a
building on the premises of L. M.
Ware, which he has so kinly offered
for the purpose. There was a
petition drawn up, directed to the
board of public instruction in favor
of the school being located here and
a term of school to be taught in the
present school year. Abut a iloz.ii
-'ig turas were quickly placed to
this petition. All expresseil thenm-
selves as quite confident that a school
would be provided for us.

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, (thirty days treat-
ment,) $2.50, or sent direct upon receipt

We were in hopes f 'havtag the l-ealre
of meeting Mr. Tffickey, but he, 'like
nearly everyone else in the county, had
gone to attend court 'at 'kIyfts. `Hls
grove consisted of about -ten acres o

jld soul, unless he improves he will -see'
his grove and land go the same Waythat'
-his orange crop went. Here we found
one tree of very choice oranges whid6h
-asw without an exception the best or-
*age we'had on the entire trip. Thev
were about,200size, thin'skinned,smooth;
and of good appearance while the Juice
was of peculiar aromatic flavor. This'
fruit is well worth cultivating, but 're
doubt if Mr. Hickey would let anyone
have a bud, if he thought they woulr
jbke anything out of 'it.
Having spent all the tiie that we'
could in this section we returned to
Mr., Lane's where a sumptuous dinner
awaitqd us. Mr. Blake, who is quite an'
epicurean, declared that everything'
treatedd better than any meal he had par-
taken of at the hotels. The entire ab-
sence of canned goods showed that'Mr.
1Iane wap "living within himself" as9
near. as possible. The whistle of the
"OCty of Athens" reminded us that'the
hotr of our departure was near. at hahd
and bidding our gepial host "good bye'
yve embarked on the steamer for lort:
Myers. We had an opportunity to wit-
ness mere of the captain's aocomodating
.naLtue when he tied up to the bank and
waited nearly an hour for a few boxes
of oranges that had not arrived from the"
grove. However there were no trains to'
maettherefore if we arrived in Fort"
Myers before the next morning the'
freight would be in plenty of time. -The'
steamer, however, madebettei time than
this and by five o'clock she was tied up
lonagide of the Myersadock.
Sunday was spent in going to church,
seeing thle town apd li tening to the ad'
vise of numerous parties as to where it'
would be best talocate to make a grove,
and hwet.fop d we could gp to every point
pfthe-co pass and that good "tree land''
p~uld he had very cheap. It Invariably
turned out, however, that the particular
Individual ether had some land in that
particular spot to .sell or some of his
Friends did. It occurred tous that poe-
pibly we were taken for some of the mil-
lionaires that visit the arpon stream
insteadd of a "frozen-out-up-the-State"'
Fort'Myers isbeautifully 'loatBed and'

Again, everything of a tropical nature
oan be grown so easily that in 'a 'short'
time a home can be made a perfect'
,bower of beauty.
Monday and Tuesday we spent in visl-:
ting groves on Twelve Mile Creek and'
across the river. It is quite noriceable
that as we go from Myers in any direc-
n-i s the GuLLt.Jh.P&ffects

where the young shoots were nipped
back by the last cold.
At the Experimental Station the ilneb-
apples, except those under cover, were
scorched pretty badlybut not enough to
prevent them from suckering. We un-
derstand that an effort"is going to be
made to raise an orange grove on 'thd
fat land at the station by thorotfghly
draining it. 'This experitliet Ill *11

ONz of the most successful of Ameri-
can artists, Albert Bierstandt, recently
observed to a friend that he never relied
upon the work of his brush for an in-
c ome."I am,"he said,"a judge of paint-
ings,my taste is hardly ever at fault.
When I find a really fine painting selling
below its normal value in consequence
of the necessities of the artist or the
failure of the owner, I buy it and wait
until the picture-loving public are edu-
When the day is t In a frame of gold.
And color runs riot with musical sounds,
When the loys of the heart ar.essily told,
And happlness seemingly knows no bounds,

When shadows some creeping along life's
When the heart grown weary of stifling its
And sadness wraps me about with its pall,
I need a friend.
In the elder days o Art,
Builders wrought with greatest care
Each minute and unseen part-
For the gods see everywhere.
Let us do our work as well.
Both the unseen and the een:
Make the house where gods may dwell.
Beautiful, entire and clean.
Else our lives are incomplete,
Standing in these wails of Time.
Broken stairways, where the feet
Stumbles they seek to climb.
Oar Spring Oleaning.
For the benefit of those who still insist
that there must be the general upheaval
and disturbing days attendant upon such
occasions as house cleaning we find
some good advice in the following ot-
In our own experience we find that
with certain methods these days can be
done away with and peace reign year in
and year out, so far as the spring clean-
To begin with it, is the little things
that must be looked after before any
cleaning is attempted. The writer says:
Any broken chairs or tables should
also be repaired, and picture frames
touched up where the gilding is worn.
Everything needing repairing or reno-
vating having been attended to, the
housekeeper is ready for the campaign.
Do not begin too early in the season, as
it is neither safe nor pleasant to throw
open the house for scrubbing and airing
n raw, changeable weather. Provide
everything beforehand, broom, brushes,
lime, tacks, etc. Start the work by
washing white bedspreads and lace cur-
tains, and putting them away ready for
use after the house is cleaned. Next,
overhaul and clean bureau and ward-
robe drawers and closets. Then it is
time to commence on the rooms. Begin
upstairs and work down, taking one room
at a time, so as to geteverything cleaned
and in place the same day. All furni-
ture should be moved, pictures taken
from the walls, and carpets taken up
and thoroughly dusted. Bare walls
should be whitewashed and papered
ones rubbed with a flannel cloth tied
over a broom. Windows and paint
should be washed and floor scrubbed
with warm water. Put moth proof pa-
per under carpet, and if the room is
closed much, sprinkle cayenne pepper
near the wall. All woolen garments
should be sunned and put away with
camphor or moth balls, which can be
procured at any drug store. Blankets
come next, and by the time the other
cleaning is done, the season will probably
be far enough advanced to dispense with
hn m a, IW h, eL.Jd F.o LFa.a
-others a good sunning, and pack them
all away in camphor with a plentiful
sprinkling of cloves, between the folds.
After the house has been cleaned, the
yard should undergo the same process.
When painting is going on it is a good
plan to place two or three buckets o
clean water with a handful of hay in each
in the neighborhood of the operation.
The water quickly absorbs the unpleas-
ant smell, and prevents any ill effects to
people to whom the smell of paint is in-
jurious. When window frames have
been newly painted, they should not be
shut down tight, as they are sure to
stick, and endless trouble not to mention
broken panes is sure to result in trying
to open the windows. A little piece of
wood inserted bet ween the frame and the
sill, leaves an opening to dry the paint,
and can be removed in a day or two.
Many people have their kitchen walls
painted, and of course they are easily
washed every year, but an annual clean-
ing with color wash is preferable. The
following color wash is easily made and
readily applied: Yellow ochre, two
pounds; umber, one pound; whitening,
half a pound. Put the ochre, umber and
whitening into a vessel pour on as much
boiling water as the ingredients will
take up, and let it stand over night.
Put one pound of glue with three pints
of cold water into a vessel over the fire,
stir till it boils and is a thick jelly, and
let it stand all night. Then add the glue
to the mixture, stir well, and add boil-
ine water till of the consistency of a thin
batter. Before using, the walls to be
colored should be well swept down, and
clean hot water applied to greasy places.
Then apply the color wash, and as it
dries very quickly the result will be a
sweet, fresh atmosphere which will
well repay the trouble. A second coat
may be applied to those parts which
have become very dirty. Now, for two
or three parting words of advice. Many
try to clean house in as short a time as
possible, and often do not take time to
get regular meals. This is a great mis-
take, as regular meals and nourishing
food are more necessary now thah at al-
most any other time. It is the slighting
of meals and putting the family off with
any indigestible. scraps that can be
hustled together, that forms one of the
chief terrors of house cleaning. Live
well while the cleaning is in progress.
Let some one be excused from the clean-
ing long enough to prepare comfortable
meals for the household.

one for a girl in a store. Just stars and

I have made a few aprons for little
folks. Here is a fine pink gingham,

frill about the top. I cross-stiched a
pattern in pink silk on the bottom, and
I flatter myself that this will wash and
be a joy as long as it lasts. White ones
could be done in the same way, using
canvas and pulling it out after the work
was finished. Here is a white one fin-
ished with discs feather-stitched around

apiece? I suppose they did cost more
than a quarter of a dollar, but I think
85 cents would cover the entire cost -of
each. I haven't used ribbons, because
I wanted to make the money go as far
as possible. I think it is a good scheme
to make a good many things similar, for
you get used to your work and can get
along faster. Then if you are doing
machine work it does not take long to
make three or four aprons on the
machine and you can do the embroidery
at odd times and will hardly feel it.
BREAD STIC.s.-Take a teacupful of
light bread dough and work into it a
teaspoonful of butter and the beaten
white of an egg, adding only enough
flour to work it smooth. Let it rise un-
til very light, then turn it out on the
board and roll it out about a quarter of
an inch thick. Cut it into strips half
an inch wide and five inches long, lay
them on a greased pan, let them rise for
twenty minutes, and bake for ten min-
utes in a quick oven. These sticks are
especially nice served with salads.
CHEESE PUDDING.-This is a favorite
hot dish for lunch or supper. Put two
cupfuls of milk into a saucepan with a
tablespoonful of butter. As soon as hot
and the butter melted, pour it over a
teacupful of fine bread crumbs. Let
these soak about an hour, and then beat
thoroughly and add three well-beaten
eggs, a quarter of a pound of grated
cheese and a little salt. Pour this into
a buttered pudding dish and bake it
half an hour. Serve it hot as soon as

Evolution of Table Manners.
How did table manners arise ? Where
do they come from ?. Like Topsy and
other human institutions, they "just
growed." And it is surprising how slow
of development has been the sentiment
of cleanliness and neatness, which was
the principal cause of the invention of
the implements and dishes used in serv-
ing food and in eating.
In good old palaeolithic times, when
human beings were always within
twenty-four hours of starvation, man ate
only with his fingers. He hunted for
his food in the woods or by the seashore,
and he picked the bones clean. Two
table articles are found among un-
civilized people-the knife and the
spoon. The knife was originally a wea-
pon of attack or defence; it was used for
cutting and carving flesh, but its con-
venience in eating soon became apparent.
The origin of the spoon is uncertain.
It must have been invented at a very an-
cient date, for it is found among people
that have never come into contact with
civilization. The necessity of having
some implement for dipping water seems
to have led first to the invention of the
eilabash, or the use of the cocoanut-
shell, and later on to the spoon.
We must wait four thousand years be-
fore we'find the fork. Or, as a French
writer on table etiquette has said,
"from the creation of the world to the
beginning of the seventeenth century
man ate only with his fingers." This
is, however, a mistake of four hundred
years; for we find forks as early as the
thirteenth century, when they are men-
tioned as being kept for special pur-
poses. Thus,John, Duke of Brittany,
is said to have used a fork to pick up
"soppys," and Piers Graveston.had three

The most enjoyable event this season
in connection with life at the
EastFlorida Seminary was the picnic
at Newman's Lake of Gainesville last

by heavy teams. The picnic ground
was selected near W. H. Robinson's

Frank Bell and Miss Mattle Flynn, of

A serious accident occurred at Or-
lando. Mrs. A. G. Garrett, who does
decorating in china, was firing her china
kiln. Her clothing took fire, and was
nearly all burned from her body before
the flames could be extinguished. This
was finally done by her own exertions.
She ran into a bedroom and wrapped
herself in blankets from the bed. She
is burned from her feet up the entire
back, and is suffering intensely. It is
believed, however, that she will recover,
as the fire, being behind her, she, did
not inhale the flames.

The depot building at Baldwin was
burned and nearly all of the records of
the railroad company and the telegraph
company were destroyed. Very little
freight was stored in the building, so
the loss to the railroad company will
not amount to more than $2,000. The
eating house nor none of the other build-
ings were destroyed.
Owing to dulness in the foreign
lumber markets and the low prices, the
Seminole mill at Millview, nine miles
west of Pensacola, has been closed for
the summer. This mill has a daily ca-
pacity of 150,000 feet and belongs to the

pany, an English corporation. It is re-
ported that theii-other large mill at the
same point will be closed soon.

After securing the corn, Williams set
fire to the barn, which, together with
many farming implements and about
twenty-five bushels of corn, was de-

been paid off at the phosphate mines on
Friday night. Alma enticed Parmo to
some oak scrubs back of Mr. Easterlin's
saloon, when Golden struck. him in the
head with an oas stick. The robbers
failed to secure the money, as Parmo
had deposited it in Mr. Easterlin's safe.

A few weeks ago Col. I. H. Trabue, of
Punta Gorda, began the erection of a
jail to be used by the city, the agree-
ment between the council and Colonel
Trabue being that the latter should re-
ceive as compensation $1 for each pris-
oner lodged in the jail. The prominent
site which was given for the jail caused
considerable complaint from near by
residents. The building was nearly
completed when the other night about
11 o'clock it was discovered to be on fire.
A few men ran out to the place, but a
strong wind was blowing and it was im
possible to extinguish the blaze. The
house was made of thick, heavy timber,
but was rather small and inexpensive.

Some time ago J. Beck Bryant of
Hardyville, Ky., and Levi P. Sheppard
of Jacksonvill went to Apalachicola,
ostensibly to work in the interests of
some insurance companies. Mr. Bryant
obtained $25 from an old college mate by
false pretense, while Mr. Sheppard
sold what he styled "bonds of the Guar-
antee Bond and Savings Company" of
Atlanta, Ga. He collected $1 dues from
each buyer of a bond, appointed an agent
to attend to the matter for the company,
and the agent since has been unable to
hear from either Mr. S)iepphard or the
company that he claimed to represent.
Dr. D. N. Phillips of Gainesville met
with a serious accident the other day.
He had been called upon some of his
patients in the southern parts of town,
and upon his return his horse shied at
the corner of Laherty and University
Streets. The baggy was thrown against
a large oak tree, and the Doctor was
thrown from it like a projectile. He
fell upon the brick sidewalk, landing
upon his back. The fall dazed him,
and he was picked up by some gentle-
men who were standing near and carried
into Mrs. W. N, Wilson's residence. Dr.
McKinstry arrived only a few minutes
after the accident, and made a careful
examination of the injuries.

Two months ago Sim Collins, of

chicks until they are from thirty-six to other words I think it is best for those
forty-eight hours old. I will venture to who can stay in the Sunny South to de-
say that at least one-half of the bowel vote a portion of their time to saving the
trouble in very young chicks is caused good name of our commonwealth by
by feeding too soon. If not too soon then making orange growing a secondary in-
by feeding food which they are as yet dustry. Why, it seems to me that it we
not able to digest, such as hard boiled would only try and raise our own vege-
eggs and the like. Oatmeal is the very tables, meat, butter, milk, eggs, etc.,
best food in my experience, for the first that we could be independent of our
few days. After four days old com- Northern friends, who are raising the
mence giving a variety, the greater the on'sshare ofoureatables,andespeciallv
better. A cake baked of equal parts our hay and grain, which we are con-
oatmeal, corn meal and wheat middling" stantly paying the transportation com-
panies for hauling to our doors, when if
is excellent. Boiled rice, boiled pota- we would only use a little more Yankee
toes, meat scraps, cabbage, lettuce, tur- ingenuity we might save all of that ex-
nips, etc., all make a desirable change pense, and in a very short time haveour
and will be relished. Of one thing be arms in s abun
minish until four or five weeks old, to
three times a day. Never feed more
than they will readily clean up. Fresh
milk is good, but do not give sour or
curdled milk; give that to the old hens;
their stomachs can stand it better. Keep
plenty of sharp sand or grit constantly
before them, and don't forget to keep
their drinking vessel full of clean, fresh
water.-A. B. Shaub.
The first feed should be bread and
milk (or water) squeezed pretty dry,
thrown on the platform floor, a little at
a time as they eat it. Give a little
cooked meat, chopped fine, as often as
you please, and when three days old be-
gin to give millet seed, cracked wheat
and cracked corn. Give granulated bone
every day or two, Keep water always
before them from the first, in a small
fountain made of a fruit can inverted in
a saucer. Every few days give a feed
of grated raw potatoes, squeezed in a
cloth until nearly dry. No bowel trouble
when you feed this. Scatter cut straw
on the platform and make the.chicks
exercise, scratching for the cracked
wheat and the millet.-O. A. Davis.
The feeding of young chicks corn in
various forms is your staple article of
food. You cannot make a flock ef young
chickens too fat; their rapid growth will
prevent that; hence corn cracked fine
and scalded and fed warm is an elegant
diet; oats ground and mixed with meal
and baked into bread, especially if the
scalded corn food is too loosening. For
indigestion or diarrhoea among young
chicks, boiled rice fed cold or warm is
the finest of ill foods; a very little oil
cake meal, say a big spoonful or two to
the pint of warm food is excellent-do
not get the cooked food too wet or it will
loosen the bowels. Steamed wheat is
excellent diet. Corn bread made with
milk and eggs and fed cold is elegant.
Sour and sweet milk or well strained
curd are all good food. Cooked meat,
lean meat fed sparingly, but often, say
three or four times a week, is very good
for young or old chickens. Young chicks
after the first days should be watered
with fresh, pure water at least three or
four times a day.-Van Ostrand.
The feed of young chicks is a subject
ef much controversy among poultry rais-
ers. The following method I have found
to be the best. Take ground feed and
sift so as to remove all oat hulls and
coarser parts, add to a quart of this a
tablespoonful of bone meal, put in a tea-
spoonful of baking soda, then stir with
either milk or water; bake same as corn
bread. When done this can be crum-
bled, and chicks will readily eat and
relish it. Fresh water should be kept in
vessels that chicks cannot get into or
they will soon befoul it.' Cracked corn,
wheat, granulated charcoal and grit,

lately, and being so well pleased with
this part of the beautiful bay, and
finding the soil satisfactory for farm-

Wewahitchki, also Mr. Le-Gett from
the north, the latter buying the im-
provements of Robert Gwaltney; he
also informs us, that there will be
some eight families, that will follow
him in the fall and yet there is room
for hundreds, and fine locations, with
good soil; but it is evident that this
beautiful land, will not remain un-
W. F. Woo.ford our postmaster,
roadbuilder, and all around, hustler
has succeeded, after much persistence
in opening, with the aid of friends, a
road, from Farmdale to Ringjaw
Bluffs, intercepting the county road
at the above named place. This
route will shorten the distance to
Wewahitchka some ten miles, be-
sides avoiding many long flats; this
road will be passable in a short time.
At South Prong a suitable barge
has been made and will transfer all
travelers over the prong. In going
to and from the Lakes, some twenty
miles will be saved, it is estimated.

menced to put material on her
beautiful bay front lot, preparatory

they needed cutting in' two; fruit of
all kinds promises a good crop.
I see by last week's Buoy that Mr.
Shands of Parker, was seriously con-
templating opening up a branch
store at Farmdale. It is hoped
Farmdale will be so fortunate as to
have the above named gentleman, for
its successful and enterprising mer-
With the inducements Farmdale
holds out in this line and r ith the
settlers who have already located
upon this new arid short route to the
Lakes, these inducements will not
much longer remain open; but will
doubtless be taken up. We shall be
pleased to see Mr. Shands the first
fortunate one. It must not be for-
gotten that a beautiful, large bay
front lot is offered to the party or
parties who will erect a hotel on the
same, and that there are some more
very choice lots suitable for dwellings
which are offered if taken soon, for
the small sum of-nothing. It is
astonishing, nevertheless true. These
lots are within a few rods of the post.
office and the title is perfect. It
would seeem like this is just the lo-
cation for a hotel, it being adjacent
to the famous shelling grounds. Par-
ties can start in the morning, gather
their shells and return at night.
If that old soldier colony, which is
about in the condition to select its
lands would send the head man down
here to look at this beautiful country
lying between Farmdale and
Lakes he would find some of the fin-
est lands in this part of Florida, and
it is quite certain that he would look
no further. Some ot the land is gov-
ernment and some of it railroad; the
latter can be purchased at from $1.25
to $1.50 per acre. All these lands
lie along and near the head of East
Bay, which is teenring with fish and
oysters, and are also along the line
of the proposed barge canal route.
Pursuant to a notice, the citizens
of Farmdale school district met at
the postoffice on the 29th ult. for the
purpose of locating a school house

Th ST ANDREWS BAY
Horfticntir an d Improveent
ORGANIZEiD 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 tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Erection of Houses. Feices and such' Permanent Improvements Is 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.
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
elation 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 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 country a few figures are given:
Price of lana per 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
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 persimmons almonds, English
walnuts, Japai. chestnuts, pecans, and many 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-
wer all questions asked it.
R E a E M EB 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 wsrk has been performed. C 0 RRE PO 0 NDENC E18 0S'LIC IT E D.

THE BARGE CANAL.
Papery to Accompany Memorial
of Maj. Robert Gamble, of
Showing the Advantages and
Value of a Barge Canal ,on-
necting the Waters of the
Misissippi River, Through
the State ot Florida, With
the Waters of the At-
The advantage would probably ex-
tend over the whole country east of
the Rocky mountains, for it is diffi-
cult to fix a limit to an effective
cheapening process established on a
long line of carriage in a country
where all the great lines constitute
one sympathetic system. The Erie
canal is only a little over 300 miles
long, and yet Mr. Albert Fink, an
eminent authority on the subject of
railway transportation testified be-
fore a special committee of the New
York legislature that "The Erie canal
regulates the freight rates on all the
railroads east of the Mississippi river,
not only on those tracks that run
parallel with the canal, but upon
those that run in opposite direction."
And Mr. Fink's statement is strong-
ly fortified by the last report (1891)
of Hon. Edward Hanno':, superin-
tendent of public works of New York
as the following quotation from it
At no time in recent years has
this fact been more clearly illustrated
and made more apparent than in the
season just closed. When the ca-
nals were opened in May last, the
pool rates on grain from Buffalo to
New York were 7 4-5 cents per bush-
el while the canal rates were from 2j
to 3 cents, and were increased in
Jnne to 3kc. But the pool rates
were not maintained. My informa-
tion on that subject, which has been
received from private sources, is, that
contracts were made by the various
railroads to carry this grain in the
months of June, July and August
for 4 cents per bushel, September 4j,
and October 5 cents, and all this
time the pool rates remained un-
changed, while the canal rates were,
May 2.51 cents, June 2.53 cents,
July 2.68 cents, Augut 3.94 cents,
September 4.19 cents, October 4.44
cents, and November 4.13 cents.
The difference between the ,pool
rates and the actual rates which
hIi.e been charged by the railroadln,
which is about 34 cents per bushel,
;s-rt-al u-uiut which has been saved
to the consumer by the canal, with-
out regard to the amount carried by
the canal. This saving has been
made upon every bushel of western
grain that went to the port of New
York during the season of canal nav-
igation, whether it went by railor
by water. As the amount of grain
received at the poit of New York
by all the various transportation
routes from May 1 to December 1,
the time during which the canal was
open, was 110,812,180 bushels, here
is a saving of over $4,000,000 on the
necessaries of life alone. This sum
was saved to the consumer by the
canal, which would otherwise have
gone to the railroads, and in this sin-
gle service has the canal maintained
The Erie canal cost $51,000,000
and the state expends $720,000 a
year to keep it in repair; but it effects
a saving of over $4,000,000 a year in
freigh: charges on the wheat alone
that goes into New York city, to say
nothing of the five times greater
weight of other freight going into
and out of the city, the money was
certainly well spent. The $4,000,-
000 saving was not on the wheat c
that went into New York through
the canal, but upon all that went in-
to the city by the railroads also. Of
the 110,812,000 bushels received in ,
the city, only a little over one-fourth
-30,846,641 bushels-was delivered
through the canal. Nevertheless,
the canal cheapened the rate on the
entire aggregate of receipts, the 80,- t
)00,000 bushels received from the
railroads as well as the 30,000,000
bushels received by the canal. It is t
not necessary, therefore, that a water I
ine should carry the freight to f
cheapen the rate; it cheapens what t
t does not carry as well as what it i
loes. In short, it regulates rates on t
Ill lines of carriage that converge at n
a common point with it. f
If the Erie canal can do this, what t
night not the Mississippi river do? a
If a small water line 300 miles in t
ength, lying entirely in a single I
tate, and accommodating only small T
oats of 240 tons, drawn by horses
nd running at the rate of three miles s
n hour-fifteen days from Buffalo to a

Dear s-I have been a tobacco fiend for many years, and during the past
two year ave 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 "Keeley
Cure," "No-To-Bac," and various other remedies, but Without success, until I
accidently learned of your "Baco-Curo." Three weeks ago to-day I commenced
using your preparation, and to-day 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 very truly,
C. W. HORNIC,
a saving of $4.000,000 a year on the
wheat receipts alone and probably
five times as much on all the domes-
tic receipts and shipments of New
York city, what might we not expect
of a wide and flowing river 8 to 10
feet deep all the year round, 2,000
miles in length, running past ten
states and accommodating boats of
3,000 tons burden and running at the
rate of ten to twelve miles an hour?
NO DEFICIENCY OF WATER IN THE MIS-
It may be thought by persons not
familiar with the river that there is
a deficient supply of water for the
purposes of navigation in its channel
at certain seasons of the year, and the
problem of improvement involves the
construction of vast storage ieser-
voirs for preserving the excess of
water that runs to waste in the
Fortunately no such difficulty com-
plicates the task. There is an amph
supply of water in the river every
day in the year-for the purposes
navigation if it were restricted to i
narrow channel, but in the 1,w sea
son this water is spread over a width
of from three-eighths to three-fourthi
of a mile affording a depth of only 4
or 5 feet, when if ir were forced int(
a channel half as wide, there woulc
be a sufficient depth for easy and safe
navigation, and all the judicionasl
executed local works of removing
bars an'd reefs at points where the3
presented the greatest obstruction to
boats demonstrate the practicability
of this system of improvement. Or
the upper Mi issisppi, above Keokuk
stretches of river that once had a
depth of water -of 3 feet, and in some
cases of only two feet, have had the
chief body of water thrown into nar-
rower channels by means of i ing
dams, with the result of having the
depth increased to 3 and 4 feet. The
river itself is made to assist in the
work, and where it is given fair play
It never fails to perform its share of
the task by scouring out a deeper
channel and removing the sand de-
posit which presents the impediment
The twenty-two states and terri-
tories drained by the Miississii and
its tributaries, not including western
Pennsylva-ia, Alabama and northern
Texas, which are also contiguous
to tributaries, contained in 1890,
46.20 per cent of the total population
of the United States. The increase
of population frum 1880 to 1890 was
6,187,576, or about on e-half the total
increase in the whole United States,
which was 12,466,467. The percent-
age of increase of population in those
states and territories duinig the de-
cade mentioned, was 27.20, while
during the same decade the per cent
of increase in the whole United States
The total wheat crop of the United
States in 1891 was 611,780,000 bush-
els, and the total crop of corn was
2,060,154,000 bushels. The product
of wheat of eleven of these Mississip-
pi states was 336,291,000 bushels or
54.96 per cent of the entire crop of
the United States, and the corn crop
of the ten valley states was 1,354,-
705.000, or 67.76 per cent of the en-
tire coin crop of the United States.
It is well understood that this very
fertile and productive area, known as
the basin of4he Mississippi river, is
pre-eminently the section ot our coun-
ry which largely furnishes the raw
nateriais and *d supplies, not only
or our man iaring industries and
he people ol lantic state, but
a very large prppor'en of the domes-
ic expoitst'to foreign countries.
These include cotton, the cereals and
The value of the wheat crop in the
states contiguous to the Mississippi
nd its tributaries in 1891 was $356,-
131,708, as compared with $513,472,-
711, the value of the entire crop of
the United States, or 69.50 per cent
of the whole crop. The value of the
corn crop was $602,808,963, as com-
pared with $836,439,228, or 72.07
per cent of the total value of the en-
tire crop of the United States; and
the value of the crop of oats was
$155,208,630, as compared with
$232,312,267, or 66.81 pen cent.
Furthermore, the aggregate value of
the crops of the leading cereals in
1891 was $1,114,849,274, as against
$1,582,224,206, the aggregate value
of the total product of these cereals
in the entire country, or 70.46 per

The demand for a practical machine induced us in 1881, to tu
from the old style of stump pullers and we made and put the first practical
machine of this class on the market. We threw out all sawed 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 ptoportionu.,
giving equal strength, making a stronger, more-powerful. light*,
handier, cheaper, faster working and a more durable machine tham
otherwise could be made, and to counteract the extreme prejudice against
the name stump pullers; the new machine was called the Smith Grubber,
